brian: we can't go out in solo. we go out in pairs. had a small opportunity to look back at my life it was rewarding to have dinner at 8:00 and get ready for the morning show in the middle of the night. the big conversation was the iranian deal. ainsley: conversation amongst your kids? brian: yes. talking about disarmament. steve: most kids are looking at their phones. if they are talking about the iranian deal. that's fantastic. do you know what the kilmeade kids were saying yesterday, tomorrow at 2:00 in the afternoon, meaning today, the president will announce what decision he has reached regarding this. and keep in mind, you know that our european allies are bracing for a withdrawal. it sounds like the president wants to withdraw the chances of keeping it sound very small. but the administration thinks this is a fresh start on nuke issues and it would give the president a lot of leeway. ainsley: he has signaled that he wants to pull out
and he ran on that unless charges are made. he doesn't trust iran. molly hemmingway was on last night. she agrees with that she says if you are going to pull out, we need to have a plan. listen. >> obviously it's a bad deal and obviously barack obama could have gotten a better deal. and one of the things that's ferrari frustrating about it u.s. gave a lot at the front end with the hopes that iran would have more to provide at the back end. the question is, you can agree it's a bad deal, but what happens now? and what happens if the u.s. departs but iran and europe stay together? are we going to do secondary sanctions? what is the plan after this? it might be better to have some kind of construct around iran than no construct even though i think it's hard to say this is anything other than a very bad deal. brian: one thing it is, it was sanctions relief. what they used is the money to help take over syria. they were already influenced now they basically have the country to align lebanon with missiles pointed right
at israel. israel has seen the build up of rockets over in syria. so, they have the wherewithal to do it. what's happening is the money is going into these terror things and not to the iranian people. they are beginning to rise up. you have the european allies saying what molly hemmingway is saying. we don't love the deal either. at least they are not spinning centrifuges. you want to leave it and try to make it better. there is another way forward, and i don't think it would really anger any of the president's base, that is, look, the european allies came here. the president wants to show he is listening. you guys want 60 days. i made it clear to you. go improve this deal in 60 days. if it's not done, if you can't get the iranians to buy, in then, in turn -- by the way the iranian's complaint about us is we have not opened up our markets and pushed our banks to invest there. we have also told others not to do that, fine, let's say we pull back and a lot of the investment of course they get rid of the
ballistic missiles and do reduction in terror activities. give them 60 days. let's call their bluff. in the meantime we tell the europeans to get behind us when it comes to these iranian trade gap that we have. ainsley: do you trust that they will do that. brian: the europeans or iranians. ainsley: iranians yelling death to america. look at benjamin netanyahu proved they lied to us by showing pictures and our intelligence agency says it's true. brian: right. steve: if the deal went away not only would the united states have to worry about the aggression in iran from the region over there, they would have to worry about the nuke problem as well. don't be surprised if the president pulls out at 2:00 this afternoon. then again, don't be surprise fed does exactly what he did with daca. during the campaign he said daca is a tissue deal. gonna change that going to fix it. make it better. how many times did we hear him say the iranian deal is a terrible deal. you know, we should get out of that so, doubt be surprised if he gives -- you
know what? let's go to stakeholders, europe, congress, give them 60 days? brian: you like that idea give them 60 days. steve: i think donald trump doesn't want to appear as a guy who goes out and blows things up. brian: like the paris deal. steve: he wants to appear to be a negotiator. he will negotiate with europe. he will negotiate with our congress. and he says look, i gave them six months, three months, whatever. they didn't do it. we're gone. that way he could still appeal to his base. i tried to fix it i gave them a chance. it didn't work out. ainsley: doesn't make iran mad a dangerous country. brian: they are always going to chant death to america and rouhani is going to stay in this deal even if we don't deal with the europeans they are not going to put the sanctions on, even if we do. russia and china are not going to put the sanctions back on even if we do. it would be interesting to put the pressure on everybody else and not on us. ainsley: right. let's move on to other things that you are talking about around the dinner
table at brian's birthday party. the president's poll numbers, at least on issues, is going up. this is a cnn poll. and the numbers are climbing when it comes to the economy, foreign trade, immigration, and handling foreign affairs. we'll read some of the numbers for you. steve: absolutely. what's interesting is it regards all those things. six in 10 say that things in the country are actually going better. you look at the metric and it starts a couple of months ago and slowly but surely apparently the country appreciates or values what the president is doing. they like what he is doing as the numbers go up. ainsley: when it comes to the economy we are at 52 percent of you like what he is doing with the economy. that's up 4 points. foreign trade, 43%. that's up 5 points. immigration 40%. that's up 4 points. and handling foreign affairs tops 40% first time since last april. brian: guess what else that's like, reuters, the rasmussen poll and if you are listening on radio, that's basically just shows
up 4 points the economy trade up four. foreign affairs up four. and his numbers are through the roof when it comes to handling north korea specifically on a different poll. steve: look at the bottom number was immigration. speaking of immigration, yesterday the attorney general of the united states, jeff sessions, was both in arizona and also southern cafe california. and he made it very clear what has happened in the past regarding other administrations and immigration on our southern border, that's all changing. there is a zero tolerance now if you break into the country illegally. also you will be handled differently when it comes to seeking asylum. here is the attorney general. >> the department of homeland security is now referring 100 percent of illegal southwest border crossings to the department of justice for prosecution. i have put in place a zero tolerance policy for illegal entry. if you cross the border unlawfully, then we will prosecute you. if you smuggle illegal
aliens across our border, then we will prosecute you. if you are smuggling a child, then we will prosecute you. i have sent 35 prosecutors to the southwest border and moved 18 immigration judges. steve: sounds like a protester got pretty close to him on the stage. ainsley: you could hear him in the background. steve: headline in a lot of the papers today the attorney general announced that the department of justice would separate children from their parents he made it very clear. if you come into this country illegally, and you bring your kids, we're going to separate you because that's the way things are going to happen going forward. if you don't want to be separated from your kids, don't break the law. it's that, he said. ainsley: back to those poll numbers. you look at this country and everyone talks about how divided it is. if you watch some of the mainstream media, everybody says they hate it, they hate
it, they hate it if you look at the polls, it's more positive ratings from democrats. 40% of democrats think things are going well. that's up 25% since february. brian: right. and i just think when it comes to border security, it's not really a red or blue issue. i have think it's pretty much red, white, and blue. in terms of what is going to happen on our border, a lot of people get up in the morning what does the president think, what does john kerry think or what does nancy pelosi think. chealsz manning is running for senate in the great state of maryland, made it clear if elected would work to abolish the ice department. abolish our borders. restructures the prison system and everybody should have a basic income. brian: how do you beat. that is she going to run unopposed? ainsley: you have to keep in mind, the 30-year-old leaked
700,000 secret military documents to the world. steve: meanwhile, have you keith ellison one of the democratic party leaders was seen at may day rally and parade in minneapolis on friday. he's wearing that t-shirt which we dropped the banner right there. if you can translate. you know that says i don't believe in borders. which is interesting as well. so there seems to be a common theme between those two democrats. no borders. brian: not just any democrat. second most powerful member of the dnc. congratulations. keep that going. ainsley: let us know what you think about that. actually, let's let brian do the awkward toss. brian: no awkward toss. this is unbelievable news. breaking news and the new yorker broke the story. jillian: absolutely. this is quite a story. get you caught up on this fox news alert right now. new york attorney general eric sneiderman a vocal advocate for the me too movement resigns over assault allegations. four women accusing him of physical abuse in an exexplosive new yorker report. in a statement schneiderman
says serious allegations, which i strongly contest, have been made against me. they will effectively prevent me from leading the office's work at this critical time. the investigation into the allegations is now underway. brand new charges expected for the man accused of shooting a florida sheriff's deputy in the head. deputy william gentry dying from his injuries hours after he was shot, responding to a fight over a cat. the nine-year veteran of the force served with his brother, a detective. >> his brother has already stated that he lost his hero. and that's the same fate for a lot of us, we lost one of our heros. jillian: suspected killer joseph ables convicted felon with a history of violence towards police. president trump's pick to lead the cia heading to capitol hill for a final round of meetings before the final confirmation hearing. gina haspel meeting with the committee. some are concerned about her background in the agency, including her role in
interrogation program. in a tweet, president trump called haspel the most qualified person for the job. well, did you see it in the met gala stir ago controversy as celebrates pope. angel wings. many on social media think the fashion went too far. but cardinal timoth dollan arch byrne shop attended and gave his approval for the event. others roasting tom brady for this versace suit. tom brady looks like the accountant for a mariachi band. what do you think about that? brian: that's an interesting combination. ainsley: i thought the costumes were beautiful. they are works of art. do you know how much time and energy they put in this. steve: they are you a in all the papers. brian: what about wearing the texas. ainsley: it's to the the
no one's born ready for it. but first things first- timcall trugreen,ed. america's #1 professional lawn care company. millions of homeowners like you trust us to give them a lawn they can live on. start your trugreen lawn plan today for only $29.95. brian: president trump taking on john kerry ahead of today's iran announcement. he is the one who created this in the first place. this in response of the secretary of state shadow diplomacy on the very badly
negotiated iranian deal. he was the one that -- save the obama era deal. the best of luc bulk of the neg. here to explain cia officer and radio talk show host buck sexton. buck, this seems to be a violation of the logan act, which is never prosecuted. this is really out of line, isn't it? >> i think the former secretary of state and he needs a reminder that he is in fact former is wrong on every conceivable level here. i think he is wrong on the substance, which people can disagree on but the iran deal has some fatal flaws in it. it has from the start. ballistic missiles, the sun set provisions, some of the sites that do not actually get inspections. we can disagree on that. that all said, there is also a bad faith element here. you can only have one secretary of state, one administration at a time. and for a former secretary of state to step in here, brian, and act like the shadow secretary of state really undermines the authority of the people who
are supposed to be engaged in these kind of negotiations. you can't help but think that john kerry is coaching the other side here. and then as you mentioned the logan act brings in a legal aspect of it. look, we all know, it's been repeated a lot. the logan act has never been used to prosecute anyone. it should not be used to prosecute anyone. it's unconstitutional if it's challenged. that said, brian, why do we all know what the logan act is? that's right. there was a whole lot of discussion about it when it came to general flynn the incoming national security advisor for trump. the hypocrisy here is jaw-dropping. in one case it's a big deal. in this case a more egregious and obvious violation of the logan act, it seems like there are contradicts on this. and we want to know why. brian: flynn was about to get the job. kerry is out of a job. >> correct. brian: number two, met with the eu foreign policy chief. he has met with macron of france. he has met with the german
president and met twice with the iranian foreign minister. all to keep this going. can you imagine how the -- any bush official felt like secretary of state rice president obama decide to pull us out of iraq therefore creating isis kept his mouth shut. what did sis kissinger do as we abandoned vietnam? how did he feel about that. he kept his mouth shut. if asked he would respond but not lobby other governments. here is what the kerry spokesperson had to say. he believe it's important the nuclear agreement that took the world years to negotiate remain effective as countries focus on stability in region. he said trump is only going to be in power a couple of years. >> this is something we expect from the taliban to have a shadow government in place. not from our own former secretary of state. brian: gotcha. >> this is really beyond the pale to. have meetings like this, this is not casual, this is not someone who is just talking. brian: gotcha buck.
>> he is negotiating from the other side of the table. brian: buck sexton, thanks. we will find out more about it at 2:00. this american making desperate plea after american flag belonged to their son was stolen. you will meet them. and a quiet interior from which to admire them. the lincoln spring sales event is here. for a limited time get 0% apr on the lincoln mkx. plus get $1000 bonus cash. the first survivor of ais out there.sease and the alzheimer's association is going to make it happen. but we won't get there without you. visit alz.org to join the fight. ♪ with expedia you could book a flight,

pays such a dear price. tell us about your son joe. >> he followed in the line of myself. i served in the marine corps. his grandpa served in '68 with a great grandpa jumped into normandy: it's in his blood line. he was a strong man. ainsley: only 22 when he lost his life fighting for our freedoms. i posted a story on facebook and it got our attention. you posted it on friday and on monday it was shared 40,000 times. it was about the flag that we mentioned in the intro that was stolen that was over your son's bed on his last patrol. tell us about this flag and what it means to you. >> i use this flag as a talking point to at love people. kind of the ice breaker when i'm talking to young vets. they can -- see that they have lost people in battle, too. and what it does is they can
relate. it helps them open up a little bit. all the people that signed it were from all nationalities. no religion, no government affiliation. just small town america. what that flag, why it is so important to us, because it was joe's and around the guys that he loved. that's basically what it was. ainsley: so, what happened to the flag. >> we have a memorial -- as a matter of fact, we just had the anniversary of joe's -- when he was killed so we have a memorial every year. and leading up to it i was looking for his flag -- my car was broken into before that, i thought i brought it into the house. then we looked into -- started becoming -- memorial was coming up and i started to frantically looking and i couldn't find it i told my life. so we went through the memorial after that. i kept looking and i said oh, no. it was in the truck. because that day we were
going to -- i actually was going to take it out to get framed. i was showing another vet. and it got, i believe it got stolen. it must have used it to bag their stuff up that's how we lost it. ainsley: sean, when you realized that, i'm sure your heart sank. what were your emotions? >> first off, i was very upset. i mean a rage. and then disappointment because i lost it and then just a last ditch effort. friday was a last ditch effort. it was just, please. ainsley: tell us the area where you live and how we can help as viewers. >> well, i live in washington. central washington or the acumanda reservation. that's why i said just share. if you can share and it bring it out to your local police department news
station, newspaper, however you can do it. just have somebody turn it in. look in pawn stores. look in goodwills, whatever. whatever second hand store you have that might be there. i know it's a last ditch effort but it means everything to us. it means everything to the 17 that were killed in that deployment. it means everything to all those 190 that were wounded at that time. it doesn't just affect me it touch as lot of people. my family and marines that served with joe. they would like it back. ainsley: sean, joe's story is touching to all of us, unfortunately his life was cut short at 22 years old. what does his service mean to you? >> sacrifice. he is buried honorably as a marine. he was where he wanted to be. he was surrounded by the loved ones that he wanted to
be around. and when he died, he was carried by the metropolitan that loved him. and so i think his service shows the love we have you know, the guy to your left, the guy to your right,. ainsley: a beautiful message. sean marceau god bless your family. >> semper fi. ainsley: more "fox & friends" coming up.

in paul manafort's case demanding to know the scope of the probe accusing it of gunning for trump's impeachment or prosecution. one or the other. maybe both. ainsley: our next guest argues legally this may not be relevant at all. here to explain is fox news judicial analyst judge andrew napolitano. >> the government for years has been prosecuting people just to squeeze them, to get information out of them, to testify against somebody who is a bigger target. as reprehensible as this is, because the form of bribery, say what we want to hear and we'll go easy on you, it's a form of as i said bribery. but the courts have accepted that and there is no question that's why they are after paul manafort. they seem to think if they can put as much pressure on him as possible, he will tell them something that they want to know against their real target, the president of the united states. brian: gates folded. flynn folded but manafort has not. >> i honestly don't think manafort will. judge ellis is the first
time to say we all know why you are here. show me the authority you have to do. this because you are investigating bank fraud that goes back a long time. long before donald trump was running for president. long before your office existed. the thing is, they will get that authority. rod rosenstein can write a letter today to make the letter retroactive they will be back to square one. judge ellis done a good thing by pointing out to us this is the way the government works. nothing new to people who used to be on the bench, like me. or watch these things for a living. ainsley: that's nothing new. have you heard a judge tear into a prosecutor like this. >> you are looking like a judge who used to tear into a prosecutor. because when the government is heavy handed, it's the duty of the judge to keep them in place. judge ellis believes in this case going after paul manafort for bank fraud that allegedly happened a long time ago is heavy handed and beyond his authority. will get that authority from rod rosenstein.
steve: that's moving the goal post. the judge made a good case, and that is explain to me why something that happened in 2005, pertains to something that happened in 2016. >> let me tell what you manafort's defense is it's a fascinating defense. all this bank fraud and tax fraud that mueller has indicted him for, he has already been investigated by the justice department, and he was exonerated by the justice department. and guess hot lawyer was that signed the exoneration, a young rod rosenstein. so guess hot first defense witness will be, rod rosenstein, who is mueller's boss. brian: michael cohen they don't like what they see with michael cohen's background. refer to the southern district in new york. nothing to do with the case. what is it muellerens probe. why does dosenned ha off cohen and not manafort. >> because of geography, brian. he does have a grand jury in alex an dea virginia and d.c. he doesn't have one up here. brian: it's not his case. >> michael cohen will
probably be prosecuted by prosecutors here in manhattan. but, when he negotiates for a guilty plea, guess who he will be negotiating with bob mueller. the whole thing, all of it, is tied to mueller's efforts to equities distracts information about the president. he has turned you mentioned gates. gates is his star witness against the president because he knows everything that happened. good or bad. whether it really happened or not in the campaign. brian: let's talk about sneiderman, the attorney general is in a heap of trouble right now. have you an interesting tie. >> i was stunned when i saw this. steve: he resigned last night. >> correct. but, if you read the peter strzok, lisa page emails about the gaggle of fbi agents that hated trump that used to meet and find ways to stifle him, there was one nonfederal official there it was attorney general schneiderman, what was he doing going from new york down to d.c. unless he was
part of some effort to prosecute the president and his people for state crimes in the state of new york where the president's pardon power would not work. and now he is gone. steve: would that be relating to trump university. >> either be related to trump universe where the president, shortly after got elected signed 25-million-dollar settlement or related to some financial dealings here in new york city in his development days. gone. brian: gone? >> yes. i don't know who is going to replace him or where it's going to go. it's a set back for that effort. steve: i think it's up to the legislature now. brian: president predicted he would be gone though? >> yes. ainsley: democrats are lining up to approve the president's pick for the cia. even one of the biggest critics is telling them to get on board. political left has been slamming kanye west for trump sentiments. one is calling the rap ear champion for white freedom.
steve: a writer for the atlantic is blasting presidenkanye'swest's support fd trump as shockingly ignorant. west calls his struggle the right to be a free-thinker and he is, indeed, championing a kind of freedom. a white freedom. freedom without consequence, freedom without criticism, freedom to be proud and ignorant. here to weigh in, ceo of the black sphere fox news contributor kevin jackson joins us from phoenix. kevin, this was quite an
article. it was lengthy in very, very long. but he makes some points. and he starts out talking about how when he was growing up to him michael jackson was a god and later kanye west would be a god until this. kevin? >> oh, i thought you were running a clip. well, look, so michael jackson was a god until he decided to lighten his skin and take on white features. correct? and the guy wrote the song black and white. the guy wrote the song man in the mirror or sang the songs, rather. and so michael jackson was essentially saying let me grow up to be what i want to be. what's interesting about the michael jackson piece of it, he talks about how michael's father ridiculed his nose. he talked about how michael's father ridiculed michael's skin color. michael comes by whatever the pathology you want to think about it honestly. of the idea that michael jackson, who is one of the best entertainers in the world, can't grow up to be
whatever he wants to be. i find interesting. because here's the thing, steve. not too many people in the white community care what eminem has become. one of the most prolific hip hop artists on the planet and nobody cares. how many kids do you think want to emulate lebron james? how many white kids wanted to be kobe bryant or michael jordan or the best baseball player or the best whatever? you know, why did a color limitation theme only for blacks? steve: here is a little bit of the article. he writes west's thoughts are not original. they are the propaganda that justifies voter suppression and feeds police brutality and minimizes the murder of heather heyer. >> again, more of the black lives matter. cops are hunting out black people. the nonsense of the left and particularly the left is blacks who want people to
believe that if you're black in america, have you no ability to change your circumstances or to be whatever you choose to be. and he points to two people, michael jackson and kanye west who have effectively reached the pinnacle. why not point to barack obama and tell us all that barack obama couldn't become because that's essentially where he is at. if he really wanted to do a dissection of this particular subject, barack obama is a perfect example of it. steve: real quickly, kevin, would he have had a problem with council yea west if kanye west support you had hillary rodham clinton. >> of course not. that's what the contradiction is as long as you support the powerful white person who has got the democrat after their name, you're fine. but support donald trump, and it's bad. look, a they are very afraid, steve as you know. steve: kevin jackson joining us from phoenix where it's really early. thank you very much. >> my pleasure. steve: before the top of the hour on this tuesday.
you know how some struggle to keep control of their children, right? >> it's fine. i can handle it. >> tag teaming to manage the mob. >> no, no. over the years, we built on that trust. we always found the way. until... we lost it. but that isn't where the story ends... it's where it starts again. with a complete recommitment to you. fixing what went wrong. making things right. and ending product sales goals for branch bankers. so we can focus on your satisfaction. we're holding ourselves accountable to find and fix issues proactively. because earning back your trust is our greatest priority. it's a new day at wells fargo.

ainsley: like god? brian: like charlie's angels ♪ >> do they meet him at the end? steve: i think. so deal or no deal. today at 2:00. you need to be tubeside to the fox news channel. the president of the united states is going to explain warrant the united states is going to pull out of the iranian deal. this is big because most of our important european allies say, mr. president, you are right. it's a stink bomb but don't do it. ainsley: said it's a very bad deal. is he saying that we have given a lot. we haven't gotten a lot in return. right now there are sanctions relief. and that was under the obama era deal. and the president says it was the worst deal ever. so he has until saturday to decide if is he going to extend that relief. the deadline is may 1st. brian: secretary of defense mattis says, i read it three times. he wants to stay in it john bolton dot not. mike pompeo does not want to stay in it. you have the foreign minister of britain coming
over, kind of begging us to stay in it. we had the president of france, germany come over. the leaders of those countries saying we know it's bad. stay in it we have 10 democrats who signed a letter to the president saying stay in it. they voted against it. what they are say something. this we know it's not great. but we gave so much away. released all the sanctions. if we go. we go back with our sanctions, fine. but the europeans are staying with it. china and russia are staying with it because we played our hand already. as condoleezza rice sat here last week and we didn't have to cut a bad deal like this. we had to cut power. steve: after what we heard the president say for the last couple of years we know he thinks it's a terrible deal. it's kind of reminiscent. so don't be surprised if he pulls the plug on it today at 2:00. at the same time, if you look at the parallels to the way he described the diamondback deal when h-daca de. bad policy, if i'm president
i will fix it. he gave congress six months to fix it. they didn't do a good job with it maybe what he is going to do today at 2:00, i know there are shareholders, stakeholders in this. u.s. congress, our european allies, i will give them 180 days. do your best to fix it if it's good at the end we will stay by it if not, we're gone. ainsley: called negotiation. it's not apology tour. his message has been simple every single time he has met with leaders of other countries is this best for america? brian: it never passed the senate. it never got the majority of the senate. ben cardin voted against it senator schumer voted against it the house was not for it what they did is they didn't get the two thirds majority to reject it. steve: to make it a treaty. here is the other thing that's going on at the same time. remember, a year ago, people were suggesting, you know, it looks like michael flynn may have broken the logan act.
where before the administration, he was negotiating on behalf of the trump transition team on behalf of the united states. it's against the law, according to the logan act. now it looks like john kerry whose fingerprints were all over the iranian deal, it looks like john kerry himself and it sounds like from his spokesperson, is he admitting that he is breaking the logan act. ainsley: he has been meeting with iranian leaders, our european leaders. of the president is condemning for engaging in what they are cawrlg shadow diplomacy. he tweeted about it. the president says the united states does not need john kerry's illegal shadow diplomacy on the badly negotiated iran deal. set one who create you had this mess in the first place. steve: kerry's spokesperson pretty much admitted it and said i think every american would want every voice possible urging iran to remain in compliance with the nuclear agreement that prevented a war, they say. secretary kerry stays in touch with his former counterparts around the world just like every previous secretary of state. so far so good.
like america's closest allies he believes it's important that the nuclear agreement, which took the world years to negotiate, remain effective as countries focus on stability in the region. ainsley: doesn't look good. looks he is sir couple venting our administration dealing with the iranians behind our president's back. do you trust iran? just last week israeli freshman benjamin netanyahu was showing us these videos and pictures that what he found that iraq ha iran has beeo us. steve: that being loose good burning the american flag. ainsley: death to america. brian: told economy was going to get better and money was going to flood. in it didn't get better the money flooded out to rebuild hamas in syria. it's not widely reported. john kerry collaborated with the foreign minister of iran to say, listen, hang in there. and they are going to stay with this deal even if we bow out of it keep in mind
this: john kerry also said a couple of months ago reportedly don't worry about trump is he only going to be there for a couple years. can you imagine if condoleezza rice was walking around europe going to the middle east saying you know, don't worry about us pulling out of iraq. we are going to put everyone back in there. this young president obama doesn't know what he's doing. that's what former secretary of state kerry is doing because he has nothing to do because is he retired now. he has no responsibilities. he is not going to run for president. all he has is his legacy to protect and it's falling apart. steve: absolutely. buck sextons was on with us 50 minutes ago. former cia guy. here is his observation about what is going on. >> this is something we expect from the taliban to have a shadow government in place. not from our own former secretary of state. this is really beyond the pale. and to have meetings like this, this is not casual, this not someone who is just talking to his former counterparts. is he negotiating from the
other side of the table. steve: okay. so john kerry will know at 2:00 this afternoon as will all of us what the president has decided on the iran deal. brian: all right. seven minutes now after the hour. gina haspel begins her nomination process tomorrow. remember, it was a week ago yesterday where reportedly "the washington post" four separate sources and no one has really rejected this where she just made it clear i think you should pull back my nomination. i don't want to be ronny jackson. people have a problem with my role black sites or enhanced interrogation. i don't want the cia dragged through. this well, the white house finally got behind him in a big way and says gina haspel we want you to be the next cia director. let's make this happen. marc short, of course, and sarah huckabee sanders making it happen. steve: there were a couple of cartons of super classified information brought over tout senate headquarters yesterday. so that the senators could actually those with clearance could actually go through and read through her past. that's one of the tricky things because she has
operated off the grid for so long, there is a lot of her personal story people simply don't know. >> people want to know more about her. can trust her. who better to talk to than the people worked with her. former cia station chief. this is what he says about her. >> i think very highly of her. she has tremendously high level of intellectual honesty and integrity and dedication to our mission. the people of the agency think the world of her. she has had all the experience. and, listen, for the past 15 months she has been deputy director. that's tremendous for this administration they know what they're getting. we do, too. she is the right choice. i hope the congress does the right thing and confirms her. brian: every living cia director backs her. here's the other thing, gina haspel has a decision to make. is she going to come out and say yeah, back then that's what i did i regret it now or is she going to say that's what i did, i'm proud of what i was able to get out of the worse of the worse.
i'm convinced i played an important role in stopping the next attack. i don't apologize for the americans who are alive today or not burned alive or had their heads cut off use enhanced interrogation okayed by the previous justifiable department in order to keep america safe. right now you don't want me to do it so i won't. if the law says i should and keeps america safe i will. that's what the cia is supposed to do. steve: everything she did at the time was legal and following instructions. steve: john brennan supports her being the nomination. brian: you can't okay john brennan number 4 at the time at the cia and stop gina haspel. ainsley: she will be the first female cia director. jillian: pretty i didn't know credible. we are starting with a fox news alert right now and some serious news that we're following. new york attorney general eric schiederman a vocal advocate for the me too movement resigns over assault allegations. four women accusing him of physical abuse in exexplosive new yorker report.

patrol and other agencies. we discussed. this this brings in a component layer at the criminal justice system at the border where this catch and release and nothing happens there is a message of consequences. if you get caught, there's going to be consequences to that. that's something that has been missing for years on the border. steve: absolutely. also, i understand for the people who come into the country he announced yesterday who are seeking asylum, rather than crossing over, filling out some forms and saying okay, come back in six months or whatever they are going to detain them until the case is adjudicated. >> that is correct. again, i appreciate what they're doing. working on the border for over three decades and seeing this missing component of the criminal justice system, think about this as a federal agent as local law enforcement, sheriffs, that work in this for this quality of life and communities where you get these people that have been caught and nothing happens.
what a motivation dump to these officers. that fills the gap. we are excited about that. steve: one of the things getting headlines today is the fact that part of the policy as well addresses people who bring their children in to the country illegally, and that is essentially children will be separated from their parents. but, yesterday, the attorney general said look, if you don't want to be separated from your children, don't bring your children in to the country illegally. >> and that is correct. the message is strong. the message has action built into it. and it's a deterrent in itself. those smuggle into the country, there's going to be consequences. so they have got to make those hard decisions. do you really want to come here? and we need a secure border. we all agree on that. the communities that live on our border understand that so, again, we think it's the right approach. steve: well it, clearly sends a message that there is a new sheriff in town, pardon the pun right there.
>> no. steve: clearly they are changing the way the immigration policy into the country the way illegals is handled. >> you are exactly correct on that. having a president and having an attorney general who has actually listened to the sheriffs in this country from the national sheriff association to our southwest sheriffs. 31 border sheriffs. this is refreshing to us to see this. where now we are all working in the same mission and that is to secure our communities promote that quality of life. it's refreshing and exciting going in the right direction. steve: sounds like the feds are helping you out in your estimation. sheriff mark dannels thank you very much. >> thank you, steve. steve: you bet. 7:20 in new york city. president trump wants congress to slash $15 billion in spending. where will that money come from? we're going to talk to white house budget chief mick mulvaney coming up. go ahead and let your kids run around outside without you hanging on their every

since the beginning of time where they are allowed to be out of sight of an adult and learn and grow as outcome people. ainsley: all right. so you are for it why are you for it? >> because this is what is best for kids. there is hundreds and hundreds of studies that show that free play, free exploration, being out of sight of parental supervision is not only safe it's also what is best for child development. ainsley: daniel, what are your thoughts? >> i mean, i appreciate the foundation of why people think free range parenting is solid choice but really, i think it's an overrow manhattaoverromanticized view ad can't be supported. take us back in time have a shared earns examine. we can't go back in time it's 2018. different stage of our country and really not cost benefit isn't there. i think the risk that it takes is not -- doesn't support basically the return on that investment of free
choice. ainsley: brings up a good point. whewe were growing up walk to school and walk to home maybe a mile. on the weekends you would leave at 8:00 in the morning and go out and play in the woods and not come back until dark. we are at a n. a different time. don't you worry about the safety of our children. >> no. actually today it is actually safer than it has been since 1963 when gas was 29 cents a gallon. this is the safest time to be raising children by every metric. violent crime is down. abduction is down. disease is down. it is actually safe. and just because there are sensationalist 24/7 media. cable news or social media, that perception does not equal reality. in fact, there is very interesting studies show that children helicoptered or year parented are more susceptible to predators because they never learned to have their wits about them. nets are moral vulnerable. daniel, you wrote the book the assertive parent. helicopter patient something it putting our kids more in danger? >> i think parenting in the
extreme is not a place where i like to land as a parent. i think why do we have to classify a helicopter parent or free range parent. i think meeting in the middle as the a parent and being an assertive parent is what you need to do and look at the optics of your family. certainly if you have a relationship and you trust your child and can you send them out to the grocery store. if that works for your family, that's fine. what my concern is passing legislation and taking government time to rework the semantics of a law when we should be focusing on education, reform, teacher pay and other things that will have a larger return on the investment for that time. ainsley: this just allows parents to have more flexibility. you are not going in goat in trouble if you do allow your kid to go to the grocery store and ultimately it is the parent's decision. next topic, everyone at this one school in new jersey a mom complained that her kid didn't make the cheerleading team. now all the kids are going to make the cheerleading team. what are your thoughts? dana, i will start with you on this one. >> it's a a former high
school administrator at a school that its fair share of national headlines, i would say probably more to the story than we know from the headlines. but it reaches a point where is it worth it? is it worth dealing with the fallout of high maintenance students and high maintenance parents? and is the program the amount of energy and money you are putting into that worth it? so i think i don't really like it. i think it could be an overcorrection. everyone gets a trophy. i'm not really in line with that type of thinking or reaction. but, again, we don't know what's done with on in the years leading up to this decision. ainsley: elm marks last word? >> lazy parenting and lazy school administration. i understand that parents and kids can be difficult, but this is about teaching kids and preparing them for the real world and in the real world not everybody makes the cheer squads. ainsley: we're going to be talking about it i will be talking about it with steve and brian upstairs. send us your emails. this is a topic we have all had different opinions on. thanks so much for being with us. hillary clinton taking a shot at president trump from

need and can't even spend. you know the political calculation here. so many republicans, mic, were steamed that the president and the president congress went along with gigantic spending bill. i know you are trying to claw some back before the november election. really, it's just a drop in the bucket. >> by the way, if it passes it's more than a drop in the bucket. it will be the largest rescissions package in history. keep in mind most presidents used to do. this. steve: right. but it's $15 billion out of 1.3 trillion-dollar gigantic spend palooza. >> no question by that why we are at 1.3 i have talked about before. it was the extortion payment we had to pay in order to defend the nation. every time we ask for additional dollar for defense, the democrats say we will give thaw but not defense spending over here. that's how that i that number got as large as it was. we had to do that deal to defend the nation. and where can you find this

for and even if they do there is enough money left over to pay that again, these are the type of things that democrats used to vote for all of the time. many democrat senators in previous years has asked for these type of house cleaning savings. this used to be ordinary course of business in washington, d.c. part of the way you run the government. for some reason, on, this as with everything, the democrats, especially democrats in the senate seem to be wanting to be ostructure and it's extraordinarily frustrating but we will try and get them on the record and see how they feel about this. steve: why couldn't they cut the leaf blower budget at the office. every time we have somebody on the north lawn, that guy comes out. >> but the place looks great, doesn't

debra, she has to get approved, why? >> because if she isn't approved. this will further politicize not only demoralize the cia but further politicize the cia. when that happens, that -- you know, on 9/11, one of the things we learned is that we had careerism, risk aversion in the fbi. and the politicization of intelligence. and. brian: they weren't even talking to each other. >> now we are seeing it all again during this -- their obsession with this very successful program. brian: so the enhanced interrogation yielded results. you say you know this for a fact. >> i know because i looked up the court cases on -- two cases the moussaoui case. detainees black sites used to convict him. that's number one. and number two, in the ghailani case, that was a case here in new york in the southern district brought by
the obama administration and the holder justice department and in those briefs, this is the holder justice department, they said this was a valuable program that saved lives and that you don't have to take our word for it, judge. here's all the evidence. and the judge in the moussaoui case says the value of this program cannot be overstated. brian: had rendition during the clinton years countries with different rules when it came to interrogation. we had enhanced interrogation and we had the high value targets. if you read the books and understand the evidence and see what led to bin laden, it was these programs that led there. so what do you sty people that say gina haspel should apologize for that? >> it will be a dark day if she does that. it will be hard for her agency, the people that work for her to hear that. because that is demoralizing. that is politicizing what they do. let's remember, they didn't break any laws. this wasn't torture. they specifically went back to the doj on four occasions

if this were woman, any other person with political affiliation, they would be celebrating her. she is immigrant. a strong woman, instead they attack her, tear her down, simply because she has the last name trump. ainsley: jessica? >> i agree with a lot of what first lady said. the first lady is immigrant, she speaks five languages. mocking her accent is terrible. given the fact that her husband is the largest cyberbullier is. her cyberbully guidelines are ripped off from obama era guide. these are things we can talk about without personally attacking her. she is taking on more than average first lady. she has three causes where usually there is one main focus. it will be interesting to what they are. when they go low we have to go high. no accent shaming. ainsley: her approval rating high right now. according to cnn, this month 57%
approval rating. in january, 47%. she has gone up 10 points. that is pretty phenomenal. why is that, kayleigh? >> because people recognize what she is doing. jessica just mentioned her platform has a lot of breadth to it. a loss of aspects. it is a very strong initiative. she has done this by watt which handful of people inner moves. michelle obama had 20 plus staffers. melania can count on one hand number of her staffers. she is doing this achieving so much at record rate. people recognize it. why democrats, she gained among democrats by double digits, gained among women by double digits. people recognize success and rewarding her for it. meanwhile mainstream media, lowest recorded approval rating in gallup history. she is soaring and mainstream media is sinking. >> what do you think about the headlines? they're tearing her down. they're smearing her. asking where she sleeps at night. if she has a house in the suburbs. is it really any of their business? >> no, it is not any of their
business but i would say if this were any other president the same kind of palace intrigue would be going on. we knew very clearly what president obama and michelle obama's relationships were like. they were affection @. the frostiness as it were between melania and her husband is sometimes on display. we saw this with the french visit. with, sorry, with macron how the trumps were behaving. i personally don't like to speculate about these things. you do what you need to do. her priority is protecting her son from all of this gossip and kids more generally. as kayleigh says i like to see where it goes. she doesn't have as many staffers she needs to get it done at the level it should be. i don't want to see anyone mocked for things that don't have to do with policy talk about real issues here and let's move on from it. ainsley: kayleigh, jessica. thanks very much. >> thank you, ainsley. >> thanks so much, ainsley. ainsley: you're welcome. lieutenant colonel oliver north

[applause] steve: president trump, the
first sitting president to address the nra since president reagan as the organization taps former marine and reagan military aide lieutenant colonel oliver north a fox news contributor until yesterday, as it is brand new president. ainsley: joining us live for his first interview, incoming nra president, colonel ollie north. thanks for being with us. congratulations. how did this all come to be and what are your thoughts? >> well look it, i'm cognizant of the challenge. i'm grateful, humbled by the opportunity. someone said to me yesterday, do you think you're charlton heston? no. he is moses. i'm a u.s. marine. that is a time when you need a marine at the top of the pyramid at the national rifle association. it is under attack. quite frankly i have never seen anything quite like it. they have hacked into almost everything they could. they have threatened officers,
directors, the staff. the harrassment goes beyond simply yelling at people. it includes vandalism. it is slashed tires and broken windshields, things like that. there is no place for that in america. and so my purpose is to, quick reaction force i guess is the best way of putting it. we have a message to get out to the american people. it is straightforward message. the nra was created in 1871 to teach the safe handling of firearms, marksmanship, and protection of the second amendment. very simple. not out to take anything from anybody. we want to help everybody keep their freedom. steve: as the quick reaction force we like you to react to an "l.a. times" tweet regarding your new position. the nra just named one of the most infamous gunrunners in the world to be its president. as a former gunrunner, how do you feel about that? >> well you know, that's the kind of thing that is, by the way gotten to be very
successful. give you another example. the folks who are doing the disinformation campaign, just don't say slanderous thing about me, ask questions of reporters, are you really missing $10 million out of your account? is it true the nra has lost firearms? those are the kind of things that of course our colleagues in the mainstream media are more than willing to ask. the bottom line of it is totally fictional story. brian: all right. >> i'm not even -- everybody knows what i did back in the 80 's for our president. steve: it was iran-contra. you were not a gunrunner. if people don't know the story, google it. we're short of time. brian: a deal was signed in 2015 that would limit their nuclear program. not many people thought it was a good deal. the senate didn't approve it. the house didn't approve it.
clearly this president is not for it. at 2:00 okay, indications are we're walking away from that deal. is that the right move? >> yes. brian: why? >> you want me to lap rate? because the iranians have been, every time their lips move they're lying. the iranians were working with the north koreans until just a few weeks ago on their nuclear program and icbm program. the europeans who simply want to keep things as they are for the trade value, the fact if we sanction them again, we ought to sanction anybody else who does business with them. they will stop the euros from helping to bail them out while they cheat on this program. ainsley: if we do bail, what's iran's response? >> look it, they're threatening to close the straits of hormuz. they're threatening to attack american vessels, transiting up into the persian gulf, they will threaten to do a lot. i think lesson ought to be drawn from what this president has done in the past when he decided to act in the u.s. national interests.
and if i were the iranian leadership, i might follow a little bit of the model what we're seeing happening in pongyang. the ayatollahs can not get away with continuing to make nuclear weapons and continuing to test icbms. brian: europe says they're staying in. iranians, rouhani says they will stay in without us. we'll get out and see if we put sanctions on after that. lieutenant colonel oliver north. congratulations on the position. you will be great. >> thanks, gang. great to be with you semper fi. steve: as he just said he is not moses. he is a narine. excellent. ainsley: we're grateful to all of them. jillian has more headlines for us. jillian: good morning to you as well. go now, the urgent warning to thousands of people as lava slowly destroys dozens of homes on hawaii's big island. this incredible time-lapse video shows the molten rock devouring a car. some people were allowed briefly

>> well, first of all the nominations are backed up because obstructionism from the democrats. second, we've got the funding we have to do by end of fiscal year. we have 12 weeks and 42 days to get there. we're offering leadership the opportunity to stay here nights, weekends and through the august break to get that work done. steve: we have a graphic. "countdown" to the fiscal year-end. 70 total working days. >> yeah. steve: 55 working days excluding fridays. 43 working days excluding mondays and friday. 12 working weeks at all. next to last one is important one, generally members of congress come in monday night or tuesday and then they're usually gone by noon on thursday. that is the dirty little secret about capitol hill. so you only work a couple days a week anyway. >> they're working in the state but the point we're not voting on funding bills here in washington. the history over the last 44 years, steve, is that congress only voted 2 1/2 appropriation bills per year. that is the average.
we're supposed to do 12. what we want to do is get to work on that to avoid the last-minute disaster we've seen last few years. the way to do that, start talking about that now, put moments on the floor, get these funding bills done now. steve: you know what, senator? you're absolutely right. you regarded the omnibus bill as is a disaster. a lot of republicans and fiscally-minded americans look at the great big spendpalooza as washington run amok. it is good you're trying to do fiscal restraint but stuff needs to get done. what are the odds mitch mcconnell will go, you know what, senator perdue, this is a good idea, let's do it? >> last year we did the same thing. several republican senators gave senator mcconnell and leader agreed. four days into the period we got democrats to agree to 77
confirmmations. we think that will happen this year. even if they doesn't, give spending bills on the floor, actually have debate, put amendments on the floor, get away from last-minute critical period to force this issue. steve: you're calling it time to make congress great again. that is catchy. have you thought about making red hats with that on it? >> red hats. we want it to work again. the way to make it work to get the funding bills done, not do continuing resolution, that really hamstring our military. leads to an omnibus the night before everybody wants to leave for christmas break. steve: that never works out because you wind up spending too much. >> absolutely. steve: senator david perdue, thank you very much much. >> thank you, steve steve what do you think about that should they work more on capitol hill? i think i know the answer. polls are open in the state of ohio. ed to pyro is having breck there. bill hemmer is 12 floors away planning the 9:00 a.m. show.
