never surrender. god bless america and anchors away. ♪ ♪ that's when country comes to town ♪ pete piatt you know it. you wanted it. we're delivering it. there is a bonafide, what is this a barbecue festival on the plaza? abby: "fox & friends" special barbecue fest on the plaza. not just for you. actually invited other people. the barbecues from across the country have come this morning to show us their greatest stuff. you already have the meat sweats. griff: pete didn't even wear a belt in anticipation. pete: i actually for got my belt this morning. i will not have to readjust it after four hours on this program. i forgot to where it. abby: it's fleet week.
if you are up and watching the show smell ba barbecue nearby come on over. pete: obviously we are kicking off summer and also memorial day is coming up on monday, a very special day. griff: very important day. this weekend is all about getting your barbecue firing up and remembering those who paid the ultimate sacrifice in the freedom of this nation and this is a time that we say we respect you. we thank you and we recognize you. pete: griff, have you sacrificed a lot for us on the show, too. and you are back. and you are looking good. griff: it was exactly a month ago today when we were doing a little segment with some amazing dogs. abby: not a little segment. pretty big segment. griff decided to jump in the poll gets his shoulder disis located in this moment. griff: the griff of five
years ago would have made that shallow dive, if you look here that was it. i called it, i put my arms up. i was pulling off good tv. look on the left my arm won't go down, that's because we dislocated it thanks to dr. seagull, new york -- everyone else. the doctor, the sling is gone. goodbye. we have shed the sling. there is also some real news. abby: thrilled to have you on today. abby: a fox news alert. president trump and kim jong un's historic meeting back on the negotiating table. griff: reviving the summit on original day on june 12th in singapore. pete: own gillian turner is live in d.c. with the latest. >> good morning, guys. you are right. planning for the trump-kim summit is back. just hours after publicly pulling out of the june 12th
face-to-face meeting. the north koreans brought their aggression to a screeching halt and decided to reengage with the united states government. president trump tweeted out a message of optimism. we are very very productive talks with north korea about reinstating the summit, which, if it does happen, will likely remain in singapore on the same date, june 12th. and, if necessary, will be extended beyond that date. secretary of state mike pompeo said that over the past several days the u.s. had tried to connect with the regime to resume planning for the summit, but each time they called, no one was home. now, the white house is in full-on contingency planning mode. they are gaming out all the various scenarios that could unfold over the coming days. >> as the president said this morning, certainly we would like to have a meeting, but the president is not just looking to have a meeting. he's not looking for just a cheap political stunt. he wants to get something that's a long-lasting and actual real solution. we are always going to be prepared. if the meeting takes place on june 129, we will be
ready if it takes place on july 12th, we will be ready and we will do whatever is necessary to prepare on that front. >> national security experts say there is a lot of hope but not much chance. they caution president trump will have to overcome some major obstacles if he really still hopes to ultimately strike a deal with kim jong un. they caution no matter how positive team trump may sound, the road to a nuclear deal is steep and it's paved with potholes. this week was a stark reminder, guys, that seven decades of mistrust really underwright the u.s. north korea relationship on both sides. abby: well said. gillian, thank you so much. not to say that this meeting still can't happen. when you hear the president speak, you can hear it in his tone. he want this to take place. these things take time. it is incredibly complicated. i think people should know that this could still possibly happen. you have to remember when it comes to kim jong un and president trump. they have to have the same understanding of what they are meeting about. what does it mean to denuclearize that region in that country.
they both have to be on the same place. you remember back in the reagan years that wasn't always the case, meeting with gorbachev and at one point reagan walked away from that meeting. he went there and decided to leave. you don't want to get to that point. pete: trump also decided to walk away. that letter. the meeting is cancelled. north korea came scrambling back to the table, no, no, no. we do want this to happen. i think a brilliant move to keep some momentum going. you can't allow north korea to keep doing what they have done in the past come to the table and given nothing. this is part of it. griff griff pay attention to south korea. they have a lot of skin in the game. they're optimistic about what can happen. i want to get to the weekend and the president and in advance of that speaking at the commencement of a u.s. naval academy to those cadets. it was really quite a remarkable commencement speech. take a listen to a little bit of what we got. >> each of you enter service at truly exciting time for
our country. for we are witnessing the great reawakening of the american spirit and of american might. yes, america is back. [cheers and applause] >> i was given an option. i could make this commencement address, which is a great honor for me. and immediately leave and wave goodbye. or i could stay for hours and shake hands with 1100 and something. [cheers] >> what should i do? what should i do? i'll stay. isle stay. [applause] pete: he did just that i think we have, a time laps of over all 1,000 hands. abby: who got the handshake. if you don't get in line in time do you miss it. pete: i think all of the grads. ainsley: it's incredible. he stayed and shook every single hand. you know, this pete.
that is a message you want to hear if you are devoting your life to fight for this nation. i think of my two brothers to went to naval academy. you wanting to hear that your country is the strongest on earth. if you have to go out there and fight, you fight and you win. pete: amen. this speech was the basics. you want to heary your commander-in-chief. his presidency as much as a cultural presidency as a policy presidency. he talks about naked patriotism. don't be afraid. stand for that a anthem. love the pledge. in god we trust. they should ignite us. patriotism is okay to talk about. he made it cool again. something in our churches and institutions reinforcing and not be afraid to talk about. griff: also an interesting time with secretary mattis. the leaders of this administration. not just the president have really inspired some of the young grads at the academies. one family friend graduating here at the naval academy is fired up because they understand the stakes that
the world is facing and the commander-in-chief obviously. abby: that's a great point. griff: someone who probably didn't appreciate that speech, secretary -- former secretary hillary clinton. pete: is she back again? griff: she was back at radcliff yesterday. pete: harvard. griff: for an ole miss grad i have to get it correct. abby: she was receiving an award there yesterday. she had harsh words about our democracy and even about fox news. take a listen. >> people who have a very particular point of view, an ideology, or a commercial perspective to try to sell, have really dominated the tv market. it's not just fox. it's now sinclaire where they are essentially delivering propaganda. so, we need more people to speak up and speak out. and we need more outlets. we need more sources of reliable information. right now, we are living
through a crisis in our democracy. there certainly are not tanks in the street. but what's happening today goes to the heart of who we are as a nation. and i say this not as a democrat who lost an election, but as an american afraid of losing a country. abby: we need more outlets for the news. pete: go buy your local newspaper. this is another part of her speech. attempting to erase the lines between fact and fiction core and reality is feature of aauthorrism which they accuse the will president of. goals to reach and mistrust are the people we need to rely on. our leaders, meaning politicians, the press, all those journalists. experts that are going to save the day. and, of course, ultimately ourselves. >> meaning hillary. you just elected me, everything would be fine. griff: she wants more outlets of information as if we don't have enough outlets of information.
there are also some headlines out here. let's get this day going. abby: busy morning, three more hours. almost four more hours. come get some bar b barbecue. disgraced hollywood producer harvey weinstein is out on bail. posting $1 million after turning himself in to the police. is he being charged with rape and sexual abuse. g.p.s. device. dozens of women have accused him of sexual crimes. denies the accusations but faces more than 37 years in prison. he must decide by wednesday whether he will testify. teacher beings mailed a hero for tackling school shooter inside his indiana classroom saving thousands of lives. reportedly shot three times as he swatted the firearm out of the gunman's hand at noblesville west middle school. watch. this really grateful for him to be there. without him, i'm not sure if all of us would have made i
it. abby: bullet striking 13-year-old legal whistler before his seemless take down in the science room. the teen is now in stable condition. the 29-year-old teacher is also recovering and in good condition. steven a husband and father of two children also coaches football at that school. the unidentified gunman is now in custody. his motive still remains unclear. horrible. and president trump keeping, yet, another campaign promise. take a listen. >> we need to drain the swamp and we're going to do it and we are doing it drain the swamp. [chanting drain the swamp] abby: the commander-in-chief signing three orders rolling back civil service protections making it easier to fire poor performing federal workers. white house officials say the white house is honoring his pledge to cut red tape and promote a more efficient government. a lot of people saying it's about time. pete: that's my favorite story of the day. government junes hav unions hava
grip on democracy forever. these guys should be able to be fired. don't fire griff. is he great. the president pulls out of the north korea summit and the media, they seem giddy. >> you have a little whiplash here. summit whiplash, on, off, back on. >> it's chaos. >> there goes that nobel peace prize. >> there you go. pete: is the left rooting for our president's failure? plus, black lives matter taking aim at the nfl's new anthem policy comparing the league to slavery. is that really fair? we will debate it coming up. ♪ you just fade away ♪ don't you know ♪ i'm still standing ♪ better than i ever did ♪ looking like a true survivor ♪ feeling like a little kid ♪ i'm still standing ♪

>> summit whiplash. on, off, back on. >> chaos. more chaos. >> you realize, when your relationship starts souring. but you want to be the one to break up first. you cut it off. maybe we can leave it open-ended. that's what this feels like. >> there goes that nobel peace prize. >> there did you go. [laughter] abby: media have a little fun with president trump's decision to call off kim jong un. while everyone should want peace, is the media seeming to be rooting with failure with north korea? here do-to-debate former missouri represent tia dan calloway and republican strategist kimberly clay claysick. i want it start with you kimberly, we talk about world peace. isn't that a time we put republican and democratic aside. be american. one time we can hope for success here. >> absolutely. put people before party at all times. i have come to the
realization that kim jong un has what i call a celebrity crush or a fascination with our president similar to what he has with dennis rodman. the president is well aware of that for kim jong un to come out and say hey, i'm willing to meet with our president at his convenience tells me that donald trump has complete control of this situation. the left is desperate at this point. so, if he doesn't make the deal they can say i told you so and continue to throw insults at republicans until the november election. if he does make this deal and he will, they have to not only eat crow, but then they have to then admit that he is good for this country and also for the entire world. representative of the utah mia love to be front and center at that press conference in regards to cancellation spoke volumes to me. she has never really aligned herself with president trump. and she even took a step backwards when he allegedly made those comments about haiti being a not so do sicial place. here she is front and center. that tells me that she and the g.o.p. are down with this decision and i also support it.
abby: don, why does it seem like it's fun for members of the media and democrats when something fails and by the way this summit could still happen in the president says he still wants it to go forward. we will see how it plays out. why does it seem like it's something to celebrate if something bad happens? that's not just bad for us, it's bad for the world, right? >> of course it's bad for the world. i disagree with your premise. it doesn't seem that way for me. the media are normal people with families. this is not some episode of real dictators of the far east. this is nuclear diplomacy in a very, very specific context that could destabilize the whole world. i think you started this segment correctly by inserting that nobody wants that. not the media or democrats or anybody else. what stands in contrast to that idea is pointing out this administration's very distinct missteps and ineptitude thus far in negotiating with. my the-year-old could have done that quite embarrassing as an document coming from
the white house. on again, off again. litigating this in the media it's not professional diplomacy. abby: there you go contradicting yourself. started out statement by say would he go should be supportive of success what's going on with north korea and people aren't laughing it off and that's exactly what you are doing. >> no, i'm not. to be supportive of success, to see success is to not want nuclear conflict or nuclear tensions to rise. that is not in contrast to pointing out that this is not the way to achieve that this letter this administration thus far in pursuing these diplomatic talks and very particular and very dangerous nuclear context is not the road to success. in fact, it's been quite elm embarrassing, nor the media or democrats or anybody else is not out of the norms for figure this out that we want nuclear denuclearization is not the realm of thinking adults. >> not mocking the letter because the president used
plain language. that's what americans love. that's why he was voted in. south korea and china want this deal to happen. for us to say okay, well, he was -- say the left was saying when he called korean leader rocket man he wasn't. they were wrong. the left is wrong and proven wrong time and time again. they are going to be wrong when he makes this happen. [laughter] whatever. abby: it is early but doesn't mean we can't be fired on about this. good debate. coming up on the show, many fans love the new anthem policy but black lives matter calls it, quote: disheartening and comparing the league to slavery. is that going too far. is vladimir putin ready to ride off into the sun set? what he just revealed about his political future, something you don't want to miss. that's coming up on the show as well. stick with us. ♪ ♪

griff: thanks. black lives matter harsh words on kneeling during the national anthem. the "newsweek." the fact that the nfl owners did not seek a diplomatic solution to this problem is very disheartening, black men work on their field and they have no sympathy for their suffering similar to slavery. the nfl's action today force their players to abide by their rules or face harsh consequences. so, is the new policy as disheartening as they say it is? here to debate it ceo of the black sphere kevin jackson and professor of the university of maryland jason nichols. good morning to you, gentlemen. >> good morning. griff: kevin, let me start with you. what do you make of this. >> companies should be able to do whatever they want. the idea that these guys want to complain about it. choose a different career. look, many people go to work every single day and they just do their jobs. the nfl players that decided they want to make the nfl their playground for pet
projects. what if the white guy decides they want to protest the injustice in the nfl that white people are not necessarily represented by the percentage of white people in america or hispanics maybe some brother wants to protest because his sister does not want to play in the nfl. when did business become the playground for people to decide they are going to air their grievances. it doesn't happen anywhere else in the country. how many other people are we talking about, griff, where black lives matter has been protested say at a kroger or target or ibm. it just doesn't happen. griff: professor nichols. i see you smiling. what do you make of this. >> first of all, i think that. first of all, we need to praframe the actual debate. number one, people aren't protesting the political science he had are protesting the police brutality. when we conflate the two we are doing disservice to hard working men and women in uniform. what i would say to what kevin just said is the idea
that you shouldn't be concerned with your labor laborers. >> not those what i said. >> what people are saying and what they need. talking about things fundamentally american. i think first amendment protest is fundamentally american as we are about -- griff: let me jump in here real quick. aren't americans also paying to watch protest though? that's the problem. the nfl down 9% in revenue. >> here's the issue, griff. i think one of the things that needs to happen or needed to happen is that the nfl should have sought some counsel from players. they made a unilateral decision without considering the people who work for them. i think corporations in good faith should actually have a dialogue with the people that work for them. >> corporation is losing money. >> a corporation that actually involves people who put their lives on the line. now, the nfl does a poor job. >> come on, really. >> some differential issues.
we are talking about players' health. >> come on you are demagoguing and getting completely off track. griff griff speaking of getting off track. >> oh, no, no. griff griff hold on, jason. steve kerr, the head of the golden state warriors coach weighing in on all of this accusing the nfl of fake patriotism. listen to this. i want to get your reaction. take a look. >> they are just playing to their fan base they are basically trying to use the anthem as fake patriotism, nationalism, scaring people it's idiotic but that's how the nfl has handled their business. griff: kevin, it's just fake patriotism. >> it's idiotic because we, as americans, believe in our country. believe that we are the greatest country in the world, it. fake patriotism. that is the most stupid comment steve kerr has
probably ever made in his life. the idea, i believe, comes from the idea that his team -- his players are the type of people -- i believe stefan curry didn't want to see the president or go to the white house. this is job security for steve kerr more than anything. the idea that americans are watching the sport of football so they can watch these types of protests is patently ridiculous. griff: jason, we are almost out of time. a few seconds. >> number one steve kerr's job is not in jeopardy at all. >> sure it. >> statistically he is one of the greatest coaches in the hills industry of the nba along with greg popovich. i think fundamentally, american is protest. fundamentally unamerican is police brew tattle. i think one of the things that we need to actually focus is what's american and what's not american. griff: thank you guys. i will tell you what
americanism is memorial day weekend. we will remember the patriots who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. >> thank you. >> thank you. griff: is joe biden rung for president? it sure sounded like it. this is not your father's republican party that is hurting us with its phony populism and fake nationalism. [applause] griff: his new shot at president trump and the g.o.p. next. plus, it's a barbecue bash on the plaza all morning long. look at that i can smell it we have brisket and ribs and pete can't wait to dig. in look at that mom? dad? hi! i had a very minor fender bender tonight in an unreasonably narrow fast food drive thru lane. but what a powerful life lesson. and don't worry i have everything handled.

pete: new reuters poll showing if the congressional elections were held today, the republicans would hold a slim lead. look at those numbers. it's a big blow to democrats because the numbers were a bit different back in march. as you can see when the democrats had a nearly 12 point lead. they are now behind by one on the generic ballot while former speaker and fox news contributor newt gingrich gave his thoughts on the new polling. listen. >> if i were a democrat. and i looked at that poll today from reuters, the republicans are up one where
they used to be down 10 or 11. >> 15 at one time. >> i would begin to panic. because if the republicans are anywhere close to even on the generic, they could conceivably gain seats. pete: what does our next guest think he knows about poll. tom bevan from real clear politics. just that number itself. that kind of change, what do you credit it to? >> well, it's a variety of factors. certainly i think the economy but more importantly trump's job approval. over that same period of time if you look back december he was at lowest point 37%. as of today is he at 44%. the president has added 7 percentage points in his job approval rating and as he has risen, the generic ballot numbers for republicans has risen -- have risen as well. the lead of the democrats has shrunk down. take the reuters poll. cnn 3 points. rasmussen democratic lead 1
point. real clear micks average the democrats lead at 4 points that's down from 12 or 13 in mid december. pete: this all matters because of the balance of the house of representatives. these numbers improving for republicans and improving for the president. but are they good enough to prevent a speaker nancy pelosi? >> well, i mean, most pundits, most observers think that democrats have to be in the 5 to 7% range in a lead in the generic ballot to be close to neglect the two dozen seats or so that they need to win control. just as a point of reference, in 2006, democrats were up 8 points. 7.9% in the final popular vote total in the house and they netted 30 seats. they -- right now that 4%, they probably would fall a little bit short. and obviously if it narrows any more than that, then republicans may very well hold onto the house in november. pete: tom, how much of this is a product of the fact that the so-called russian collusion narrative has not developed yet that democrats and the resistance and media
have been invested in it wall-to-wall. if that's not work something that hurting the way people are perceiving. >> it's great question. it's hard to know exactly. we have seen. i graphed president trump's job approval recently on twitter against michael avenatti 174 cable news appearances over the last 10 week period what you saw was the president's job approval actually increased over that time. definitely there is a factor where voters are tuning that stuff out to a certain degree and things like the economy, foreign policy, those sorts of things i think are taking prime macy. that's why we are seeing the president's numbers go up. pete: the president has the ability to speak straight to the people via twitter feed whether the left likes it or not. tom bevan, thanks for your insight this saturday morning. >> thanks, pete. pete: president obama says there weren't any scandals during his administration. mike huckabee here to react to that claim the next hour. he could be the next big thing in nascar. meet the 14-year-old protegee taking the racing

now the summit may be on. president trump talking to reporters at the white house it, seems, after he sent that letter that said, you know, we are out. the north korea came back and said maybe we want back. in listen to what the president said. >> we're going to see what happens. we're talking to them now. it was a very nice statement they put out. we'll see what happens it could even be the 12th. we're talking to them now. they very much want to do it. we would like to do it. we're going to see what happens. griff: i have covered this all week long for you guys on "fox & friends." the stakes, it's important to give this context the stakes could not be higher. we are talking the security of the world and essentially the denuclearization on the korean peninsula and the president clearly showing that his hand links of this well we will see what happens. really there is certainly a very determined strategy behind it. you do see pay attention to south korea. they are indicating their confidence in the process is playing out. bret bill co-very much on
hannity here having this to say sort of talk to that take a listen. >> >> if we have learned anything in the last 24 hours is that the president's chess move works. if this was the same administration that worked the iran deal we would be begging and pleading for them to come to the negotiation table over and over again just to get them to sign some paper that's a weak deal in the end. what we are seeing here is a very significant event that is playing out on the world stage and i think the president in the end did the right thing here. abby: when you listen to the president's tone, you can tell he wants this meeting to happen. but listening to bret there when it comes to diplomacy, these things take time. it's always a delegate balance. what -- delicatebalance. kim jong un and president trump aren't talking on the phone they're talking through each other's media outlets. president having his team about what's going on and vice president and john bolton, for example, they do mention it being like the
libya operation. have you to be careful because kim jong un he is listening what he remember from libya is that qaddafi was killed. you understand where north korea, they are saying we don't want that to happen to us here. have you got make sure everyone is on the same page when they're out there communicating their message that they're all on board. pete: absolutely. and stand firm. when north korea puts out the foolish statement they did trying to play the games they did. we're out. we're done. you know my phone number. call me if you want to. a lot can't ignore that have a bra shadow. there is no strategy here there is a lot happening behind the scenes. they have great team. focused on this and clear-eyed about kim jong un and what he wants. know how tough it's going to be. no one is preemptively giving trump the nobel peace prize. let it play out. abby: everyone should hope for success in the end. griff: revelations that fbi informant possibly inserted into the trump campaign in 2016 and, of course, former cia director john brennan has been very vocal on this
in attacking the president. let me play this for you and give you context. >> i think it's very at this tyl of mr. trump to mischaracterize. master of mischaracterization and dishonesty. to label someone as a spy is doing a disservice to these individuals but also to the finn. fbi. this is something president trump is masterful at twisting the truth in order to support his narrative. pete: twisting from the guy who is twisting away. call it what you want. informant, source. what's the word he uses all the time. confidential human source. that main the technical term. abby: how about just a spy. president president the president calls it spy gate. we are doing it for your own good. put someone in the game to impact your people. that is the definition of espionage. call it what you want. now that they are caught with their hand in the cookie jar they are making
up accusations. counter accusing and nitpicking and using language to say it wasn't spying. it was a confidential human source. abby: frustrating for a lot of people with john brennan who used to run the cia is how political he has become. when you run the cia and fbi it's supposed to be a nonpartisan job. utmost respect for whoever runs those groups. here he is from day one. he has been against president trump. he has he called him a number of different things and i think have you got to be careful in that role that the american people at a certain point don't want it to get political. griff: here's what matters. and that is that we are now going to find out. because we're talking about a covert operation together, information. whatever you call that we are going to hear from many of the people at the fbi, including, pay attention to, this bill prestat. he was the head of the counter intelligence at the fbi. may still be. he hasn't been fired. i'm not sure what he does there we have learned from a house committee, the judiciary and oversight

sugary drinks, for example, they will drink less and there is just no question that full sugar drinks one of the major contributors to obesity and cancer and other things. abby: is he right about obesity and challenges this country faces. people don't want to be told what they can and cannot do. people don't want to be told their taxes are going to raise. griff: young people have too much access to 76-ounce, 72-ounce sugary big gloips. we don't want children to have too much sugar. is he labeling it poor people. somehow jumped from children to poor people because i'm a billionaire. pete: he did. but also exposed what do think actually think? how left thinks about you, you're too dumb to make a decision for yourself. ultimately. i'm a technocrat, i'm an expert, i'm a politician. i know better. the research shows that i should tell you to take that sugary drink out of your hand or just let people

>> now the president is signing three executive orders to overhaul the way government does business and making it easier to fire poor performing federal workers. abby: joining us with the very latest marc short. it's great to have you on this morning. happy memorial day weekend to you. first off the top. the response of the white house, this is why a lot of people voted for president trump this last elections. he was a businessman. they wanted him to go in there and do things the way a business ceo would do it. if somebody does something wrong in your company can you fire them. that's what he is saying happen in the government. >> abby, i think you are right no. resounding cry more on the campaign trail than the president just showed the clip would say we are going to drain the swamp. that's what the american people were so frustrated with the way washington, d.c. worked. they wanted to elect an outside tore come out here and clean it up. of course, everyone who works the federal government taxpayer expense should be held accountable for the job they are doing. that's common sense. you know, pete, on your show there. he worked for a long time
advancing the v.a. accountability act that provided the same sort of accountability inside veterans affairs. that's something that we signed earlier last year. but, these executive orders, i think, continue to deliver on the president's promise to drain the swamp. pete: marc, that was going to be my question. the v.a. accountability act gave more power to fire under employees there. has that approach worked or helpful at v.a. and now it should be a that i across the entire government. >> again, pete, as you know some of the tragedies and horrors witnessed during the last administration and the way the veterans affair was handled and actually veterans dying waiting to get care. and, yet, no accountability. i think the american people are outraged and say there has to be some level of accountability. and i think it's just common sense. and so, those same authorities provided veterans affairs are things we believe should be provided across the administration, including the civil service. these people work at taxpayer expense. and they should be accountable. those who do a good job should be promoted. those who are underperforming there should
be a level of accountability. griff: let me quickly get to another topic. that is summer is starting and this summer the president plans to release a new tax cut proposal? >> griff, the president has been anxious to get to tax 2.0. we look at what happened with the first tax plan. you see unemployment at 20-year low as the president says african-american unemployment at historic all-time low. hispanic unemployment all-time low. unemployment claims at 44-year low. the reality is the economy is booming and it's really exciting to see. but we want to make sure that the tax cuts provide individuals are also extended and made personality. >> you will see the president probably unveil something later this summer. he has been working with chairman brady on that. and we want to make sure that the same corporate relief that's permanent is also provided to individuals and made permanent. griff: more crumbs then, perhaps. abby: all those crumbs. pete: one other thing to note too the executive order gets rid of some of that official time when union employees could do political work on the government dime. unbelievable. marc short, thanks for your

it's the reporter in me. abby: fox news alert. griff, go ahead. griff: kim jong un and south korea's president moon meeting overnight. the meeting could still happen and still could actually happen in singapore on june 12th. here's the president. >> we're going to see what happens. we are talking to them now. it was a very nice statement. see what happens it could be the 12th. talking to them now. they very much want to do it. they would like to do it. we will see what happens. griff: we're going to go with that sound bite just because we are in the midst of cass caghtd events. south korea, north korea stopped talking to each other. then north korea didn't show up for the planning meeting for that summit. the president sent that letter, pulls out. now this meeting just north of the dmz in north carolina. pete: north korea you mean. abby: little different place. pete: have you barbecue on the mind.
griff: we are told initial report they did discuss the summit still taking place. we have photos coming into our newsroom. first time the leaders have met you said, griff, since the president pulled out of that meeting. you will remember this all started back in a the first time these two leaders met. met on the dmz. south korean soil. first time kim jong un set foot on south korean soil. the meeting happened as we're told still on the dmz but on the north korean side. we don't know what was said in this meeting between the two leaders. what i will say is president of south korea talks all the time with president trump. they are in -- they know exactly where they want to go with the summit. they want to communicate together on this. so it's really important to make sure they are on the same page talking with kim jong un. they have to have the same understanding of what it means to denuclearize. pete: play good cop, bad cop. it's clear kim jong un wants that meeting with president trump. this is a reiteration of that okay, we'll come back to the table. just kidding all that bad
stuff we said about john bolton. we will take that back. ultimately president trump is setting the terms of this discussion because the end state is a difficult one which is getting a brutal, terrible dictator to actually given his nukes. griff: which would be very difficult this all starts in 1994 with bill clinton and essentially appeased north korea. they have tried to say they are going to back away. now, we are talking about the most historic meeting between the president of the united states, the leader of north korea. and actually bringing peace on the korean peninsula. here's the thing. the letter. the letter was first time we have had direct contact between the president of the united states and the dictator of north korea. and clearly that had some impact here because you have got kim jong un and president moon meeting. abby: that direct contact is so important. up until this point, they have only been communicating via our media outlets. you mentioned john bolton, pete. that's why it's so important
that we communicate exactly what we want to north korea and visa versa. whether you have folks like john bolton and mike pence talking about the libya operation that can get news trouble. the way the north koreans see it the qaddafi was killed in that operation. that's obviously not how we want this to end. now, president trump when you listen to his tone, he wants the summit to happen. he wants to make this work. now is he talking to the president of south korea saying communicate with him, exactly where we are on this and let's see how we can move forward, where we can go from here. pete: when you read that letter, it was clear it was dictated by president trump. trumpian form with the blunt statement of we got massive nukes and we don't want to have to use them if we need to. abby: we'll. pete: call us. it's inside the psychology of kim jong un we will attack them and bomb north korea to prevent that if he does, he will come to the table and say all right, let's figure this out. griff: that is the key, getting to the table. democrats, you saw nancy pelosi and others have criticized the president for
basically giving kim jong un what he wants. he wants international status. he wants to be seen and he is having essentially give up nothing other than shutting that nuclear site don't have any proof actually did do anything. the fact that this letter and these events, the way the president and this white house is strategically played it has gotten them to the table called off by out president. hear a lot more about this story this weekend. this is a development that is very significant. >> you talk about all the pieces that are involved and delicate balance. we haven't talked about china. china continues to be probably the biggest part of this whole deal part of this conversation. they keep north korea afloat. china is a big deal here. because of china ultimately that caused kim jong un to back off or say some of the things that he said that made president trump walk away from this thing. it will be interesting to see how china responds though. north korea before this
ultimate a lot of personalities, pete. pete: singing a different tune. abby: remember that? he took that train ride. pete: look at that embrace right there. two people-two i people who have been pointing guns at each other for 70 years for a war that never ended. a lot of families separated by that dnc that woul dmz. represents a lot of history that photo right there. abby: everyone out there who says this thing has failed. this failure on the president's part, let's be very careful. potentially creating a lot more peace on the world stage and you see these leaders there this is breaking news overnight. these things take time. a lot gets put into an ultimate summit if it comes to that. a lot of it takes patience lead diplomacy do what diplomacy does. honestly, trust the president. that is his role, trust the advisors around him and you all want to hope for the very best here.

do you understand, griff, we are all dumber for having this conversation. i'm sorry. abby, pete, you are going to lose 10 iq points after this conversation. this is the dumbest conversation in american history. let me just lay it out really simple you sphoor the liberals and their goofballs in the media, the media covering up for this. the fbi had a person who was getting information on the trump team that was being used to spy on the trump team that's called a spy. s-p-y. a spy. i cannot believe we are seriously having this conversation. now, let me just say one more thing. the media, you are a joke. you are an embarrassment. you are a disgrace to the country for not covering this honestly. this is a huge scandal that you are burying just to save face for the obama administration. it's disgusting. pete: they call it a confidential human source.
so their rationale is we are defending the country and defending the trump campaign against russia, right? then why didn't they tell trump's team that they were being surveilled from the inside if they were protecting them? >> pete, even worse, right? if that was their m.o., what we were just protecting you from russia by implant ago spy in your campaign. you are using a euphemism of a confidential human informant. why didn't they put one in the hillary campaign? hillary had deep ties to russia. hillary had deep ties to ukraine. hillary's foundation had taken millions from russia. pete, a very serious legitimate -- i know i can be sarcastic and definitely really p.o.d. about this story. i'm serious, why not insert a spy into hillary's campaign. nobody will answer that question. abby: you listen to james clapper on cnn answered said a lot of things about president trump calling him an agent to the russians as well. isn't it possible when he says that he believes former president barack obama
didn't know that anything was going on at the time? is it possible that obama didn't know? >> >> no, abby, it's not. we have been lied to at every significant stage in this operation. susan rice lied saying they knew nothing about unmasking and that it didn't happen. that was a lifetime achievement john brennan lied. claiming he didn't know about the dossier. evidence didn't have details on it. that was a lie. jim clapper lied about hi contacts with the media. abby, do you know what is exhibit 1 that obama knew? the fbi said obama wanted to know. remember the text from the two investigators strzok and page that were interseptemberred in the ig investigation? one of the texts says potus, president of the united states, wants to know everything. this is a another lie. and the media will cover it up like they always do. griff: good point here. bill who was strzok. griff: your podcast from yesterday fantastic laying

familiar with the term fomo fear of missing out. i invented that term when i was a graduate student. fomo is extending into all aspects of their careers. largely entrepreneurship. have you 66% of students want to be entrepreneurs when they graduate. but they are not willing to go out and build those basic skills. so what i tell young people is go get a job. learn the basics, and then think about entrepreneurship. maybe even explore it on the side in your part time before going full time. pete: ruby, what are you seeing from the millennials you are hiring right now, what are you seeing? >> so, you know, i think millennials really, you know have a bad wrap out there. it's hard for them, right? there are some of them that are such hard workers. i don't want to make a statement that, you know, over generalizes what i have see in all millennials. unfortunately i think as a culture we have an herb of prolonged adolescence. that's not only the preliminaries fault. that's the parents' fault. they are equally to blame in that whole industry for adult summer camp. adults going to that.
that's a real thing and that's not only -- that's literally for adults. pete: you say it's hard for millennials. patrick, you say we are being almost too easy on them and therefore it's difficult for them? >> every young generation, the generation comes before it looks at their criticizes them. it we think at the good quality is the fact that they are flexible and creative and willing to take risk and build their careers in an environment that doesn't offer the stability that parents have in careers far more predictable. i find that actually i think they will be more resilient than we expect. the problem is we have got to have their parents get out of way. let them go out there, take risk, fail. maybe even have to be evicted from their parent's house. pete: both of how is to blame the 30-year-old or the parents? >> parents. that's an easy unwith. pete: got to disappoint because of some sort of complacency by the parents, too. >> guy by the sink or swim methodology. if you think you have a support system you really
don't have the motivation and ambition to work. pete: interesting. good stuff. thank you for your time this morning. >> thank you. pete: good simple hard truths. i like it. now to a fox news alert. kim jong un and south korean president moon they met overnight. new developments. what does that mean for trump and the process of that meeting on the 12th? our next guest worked for the reagan administration and says trump can take a page from the reagan playbook. plus, leave the hot dogs and hamburgers at home. the "the washington post" wants your next cookout to have carrot dogs. we're not cigdz. one of their people that writes about feud replace the hot dog with a carrot. your emails are pouring in. no carrot dogs on our plaza, of course. heading back outside for our memorial day weekend summer kickoff barbecue bash and he would are doing it right. no carrots, only pig butts ♪ all my friends are coming over tonight ♪

president trump is often criticized for. but can that work to their advantage when it comes to diplomacy and what we are dealing with right now with north korea? >> well, i think there is always a strong methodology behind what you see on the external. and there is so much more behind the scenes. you know, ronald reagan believed in face-to-face diplomacy. we see president trump definitely. ing to do that as well. he believed there was nothing that couldn't be resolved if two leaders sat across the table from each other and talked things out. i think it's very important for president trump to get across that table and i think we're going to eventually see that happen. but, diplomacy takes time and we need to let this relationship play out from afar and then eventually i think we will see them across the table from each other. abby: so often we can learn lessons from history. take us back. 1986 when ronald regan was trying to negotiate and meet with gorbachev. that was back in 1986, got criticized. he ended up walking away from the deal. he went all the way over to iceland and walked away. a lot of people said it was big embarrassment from
reagan. rolling stone from a piece written back then. when ronald reagan emerged from bargaining session with gorbachev the president looked stunned like a small boy who had burned his finger from a light socket. came home empty handed from iceland. we all know how it ended ultimately but what do you make of that peer in history and what we can learn from it today? >> well, reagan, of course, took a lot of criticism from the press. if you look at the foundation that was laid there it led to the inf treaty that was signed just a short year later. for him, he believed that no deal was better than a bad deal. and he was willing to walk away. we see president trump's willingness, obviously to do that exact same thing. you know, there are so many parallels that can be made part-time thought reagan was confrontational going to the wall and saying tear this wall down. if you look earlier in that same sentence he said mr. gorbachev, if you seek peace, and prosperity for the soviet union and eastern europe, you will come to this gate.
whales providin he was providina incentive and magnet rather than confrontational. definitely parallels there interestingly enough with both presidents if you look at the presidential seal itself in the tallans of the eagle you have olive branch of peace in the other one you have the arrows of war. and i think that president trump has made it very clear he is extending an olive branch of peace but is not afraid to use arrows of war if need you had. abby: i always love looking back at history particularly how the media maneld it back then. ultimately he was successful and end of the cold war. what can we learn about media today and how diplomacy is being handled because, as you know, very well from your years working with reagan. these things take time. it is a very delicate balance. do you think the media is playing their role the right way at this moment or do you think people need to have the more patience, let this thing play out? >> diplomacy does take time. it does take patience.
and diplomacy at the end of the day is all about relationships. not about rhetoric. and it's not about politics. it's very personal. and that was diplomacy the reagan way. and so as we know in our own lives, relationships take time and so you can imagine even more so on the world stage. you know, i know that one page that donald trump will be taking from president reagan's playbook and that's regardless of what happens, regardless what comes from any eventual summit, he will definitely be in a position to trust but verify. and that's something that is going to be crucial moving forward because we understand a lot of promises have been made in the past that have not been kept. and i'm sure he intends to verify. abby: you are right. it's all about these face-to-face meetings. breaking news overnight. that's exactly what happened between north and south korea. where it goes from here, we'll see. peggy, it's great to get your perspective on this morning. great to see you. >> thank you so much for having me on. abby: all right. coming up, did you see this moment president trump who met a family adopted a little girl born with opioid

when you take a road trip with your family, does it sometimes go like this? >> i saw them when you and mom were trying to fold the map. >> audrey, when they close a road, they put up big signs like this one. [screams] abby: so my family growing up. nowadays it might be tempting to hand a kids a tablet to keep them entertained in the car. the american academy of pediatrics they say don't do that so fast. griff: new guidelines say babies younger than 18 months should avoid it all together. and kids keep the screen time below two hours a day keep your kids off the tablet? let's bring in kurt the cyberguy. kurt, really? >> griff, you know what this is. this is america's perfectly square pacifier any a tablet. turned to it in the backseat. turn to it often moments waiting at doctor's office. what this new information is
realizing that for children at birth through 18 months. could be detrimental for them to be using a tablet too much. sure the car ride is fine. sure a doctor's office is fine temporarily. what they're finding is the parents using technology in front of little ones and also little ones using technology during that period of time can really change developmental outcomes. in other words, children are learning thousand express emotions from being in our physical interactions with one another that you don't get with a tablet. they had one exception to this news, which is face time or video chats are perfectly fine. because how else are you going to talk with a grand parent abroad, right? you have to do it plus it does offer that connection. abby: what's the alternative if you are in a car. so many people are driving this weekend for example and screaming kids in the background and you immediately want to pull out that tablet that's all have you got. what's the alternative. abby: there is not.
pete: allow kids to be bored a little bit. look out the window. talk to each other. read a book there are alternatives. >> actually, what you just said is actually exactly the point they are trying to make which is if you let us just be together, we're going to figure it out. stop throwing technology at your kids as a pacifier because that inevident continuably is going to create distance between you and your child and between your child's ability to cope with life later on. because, instead of being like this to solve a problem, they will go like hold on. it doesn't always have the answer. griff: okay, kids, let's play the license plate game. doesn't work for the 15th time. pete: can you deprogram too. a lot of people got to the point the tablet is the answer. wean the kids off of that. griff: hate to cut you off. just like that thank you for being here. cut the tablet time. pete: next we have a fox news alert. kim jong un and south korean
griff: kim jong-un and south korean's president meeting overnight this is president trump teases his face to face meeting with kim jong-un could still happen. president trump: we're talking to them now. they very much want to do it we'd like to do it we're going to see what happens. griff: revelations that an fbi informant possibly inserted into the trump campaign in 2016. >> she's a master of miss characterization and dishonesty to label someone as a spy when they're a confidential human source is doing a disservice. >> the fbi had a person who was getting information on the trump that's called a spy. griff: president obama says there weren't any scandals during his administration. >> there were a lot of scandals
but the difference was there wasn't a scrutiny and the press was fortunate a watchdog they were a laptop. >> where they are essentially delivering propaganda. we need more people to speak up and speak out. president trump: you don't give up. you don't give in and you never surrender. god bless america and anchors aweigh away. >> ♪ ♪ pete: we still have a couple segments left, we haven't had them yet. they are unbelievable. abby: that's a great name for a barbecue and we've got barbecue places from all over this country. we've got everything. >> boston, texas, new jersey, everywhere we've got just the beginning of memorial day weekend, of course we know the reason for this weekend, it was
those who gave everything for our country but you also should in enjoy some barbecue. abby: you didn't wear your dealt today so it can stretch. and you all send us in your photos you're celebrating spending your time on memorial day weekend. this is lisa's son currently serving in japan thanks lisa for sending that. griff: and patricia sent us this one, rob whose on his fourth deployment in kuwait thank you, rob for your service. pete: good man for sure. jean sent us this photo of her grandson whose proud of his dad who served in the indiana national guard. abby: once he says major cutie. that is adorable. keep sending us your pictures email@example.com and if you're in the area and can smell the barbecue it's here so come have breakfast. griff: folks here have been consuming. pete: fueling. abby: you know how to do that. pete: fueling the tank that's all it is. griff: send us your photos.
abby: we have got a lot of breaking news we want to get to this and this just happening kim jong-un and south korean president moon meeting overnight this is the first time the two leaders of those countries have met since president trump decided to pull out of that summit on june 12. we don't know yet exactly what was said in that meeting but here you can see photos and video coming from that meeting that happened overnight it was in the dmz, in the north korean side remember the first time they met back in april was on south korean soil, so look, there is still hope. the president said he wants the summit still to happen. he said it could still happen on june 12. pete: that's right. this is a big new development. griff: it is a new development we're talking about the most significant meeting between an american president and the dictator from north korea and you see in this video we are getting early reports they did discuss the meeting moving forward this coming after north korea's latest reaction to president trump's letter which was that it could still take
place at any moment at any place , and now, we are seeing developments despite pete, the critics. pete: yes. griff: house minority leader nancy pelosi really mocking the president's letter but that handling of this very sensitive situation has apparently kept things on track and we are see ing this development which is significant this morning. pete: it's very significant look at that picture. north and south korea have been divided for 70 years there they are in that embrace, doesn't mean it's over or will happen but it took a strongly worded letter by the president clearly dictated by him that your foreign policy crowd sort of mocked but you know who didn't mock it and took it seriously? kim jong-un and said guess what i want this meeting to happen, you say you'll use your bombs if you need to, i have to believe that calculus i'm coming back to the table and the part of coming back to the table is reuniting once again with the south korean president and again, we don't know everything they talked about but setting a pathway to a big meeting, it seems to be on
track. abby: and why has this all happened? you realize the president pulled away from that meeting and said ultimately we were not going to get to a place where i'm happy with and as for the united states it's not a deal that we can support as the united states of america. we're not going to do it i think that sends a clear message to kim jong-un that we take this very seriously and we're not going to sign up on an agreement that we are not fully on board and that means you need to denuclearize that region. pete: not about a deal but about the right deal and the right terms of the deal. negotiations oftentimes are settled in how they're framed and setup not what happens inside the room. the art of the deal the guy wrote the book the art of the deal he's prepared to have what you need to set the right terms, to get on a path to something good. we'll see. and that's what the president himself said we'll see what happens. we're all watching. abby: you realize that the president of south korea he talks to president trump a lot these days and so they seem to be on the same page, whoever is being communicated by the south korean president who kim jong-un is probably coming from
president trump, so they may not be speaking directly, but certainly the same communication channels. pete: good cop bad cop maybe. griff: we're also watching the story in washington and that is revelations that an fbi informant may have been inserted into president trump's 2016 campaign. pete: well was inserted the question is what do you call it and what did that person do and why were they there. griff: yes former cia director james clapper having this to say about whether or not there was knowledge of that spy. >> you can answer this question did the fbi know, i'm sorry, did president obama know the fbi had informants there? he said he'll guarantee the answer is yes. do you know the answer? >> i'm sure president obama had no knowledge whatsoever of an informant, and i didn't know about the specifics nor would i know of any specific informant.
fbi has very strict protocols and rules on managing and using informants and i'm sure that those protocols were used. pete: do you know who else didn't know about the so-called informant or spy? the trump campaign yet they're being told the spy was there for your own good. abby: to protect you. pete: to protect you from the russians but we didn't tell you about it and oh, by the way we've been lying about it throughout. abby: if there was such a concern about russian collusion which was going on well before the 2016 campaign with president trump why did they not act back then? why did it all happen under the president trump campaign so still a lot of questions there. we had dan bongino on the show reacting to james clap erin that interview saying that he's aware that barack obama didn't know anything he says of course obama did he wanted to know everything during that period of time. >> do you know what is exhibit 1 that obama knew? the fbi said obama wanted to know. remember the texts from the two
investigators, strzok and page that were intercepted in the ig investigation? one says president of the united states wants to know everything. this is another lie and the media will cover it up like they always do. it's a disgrace. griff: we'll see and we certainly won't cover it up here also we had a tweet from james comey that said he called it a human source, a human -- pete: confidential human source undocumented. griff: he said facts matter. pete: it's all words. it's semantics. you put someone in they pull out information and give it to a government entity from another poll party that's called espionage and spying. pick your words but they conflate with words to make it look like they're doing sophisticated things inside the government. abby: and how do we even know about all of this right? this all came from a new york times article a couple weeks ago that was leaked from who knows? still a lot of question marks about how that came to be and where we are right now. we don't have all of the answers but i think it's right for people to be asking these
questions. griff: and we may learn more from the house judiciary and oversight commit committee, common gowdy and goodlatte, he was the head of the counter intelligence division at the fbi , he is going to be interview ed by those committees pertaining to hillary clinton's e-mail scandal but as i got a statement yesterday from ron desantis, he says he's asking about this fbi informant and we'll find out and it's very telling. abby: i was going to say they put an informant on the trump campaign why not hillary clinton pete: isn't that what they did in the foundation? abby: they were concerned with russian collusion and they said they were there to protect president trump, why not do the same thing to hillary clinton then? pete: good question we'll let that one linger for you america. isn't it a beautiful day folks? abby: good morning you guys. >> [cloud of applause] abby: we've got a lot of things going

of that very gracious letter and i think kim has realized that they has everything to lose and in that full frontal photograph with president moon, i think he looks a little worried and he should be. pete: well doctor you call it a gracious letter but critics of the president has said it was over-the-top and typical trump, yet it seems to have worked what is it that he understands in his rhetoric that others don't about him? >> i think it's very clear that look, he wrote the book. he wrote the art of the deal, and in it, chapter 2 allegedly dennis rodman gave kim a copy i don't know if he's read it because in chapter 2 the president writes never ever be so vested in a deal that you're not prepared to walk away from it at any point and that's what the president has done. i think what's worked is really the tweets, peter, when you're dealing with a dictator, you talk to them as if they're a dictator.
this isn't negotiating with belgium, this isn't negotiating with a normal nation, you make fun of them, you ridicule them and you make them quake in their boots and when you've got people like secretary mattis four star retired marine corps legend backing up the president and saying if you threaten us, we will destroy your regime, that kind of language, that gets through eventually. griff: so sebastian what do you say to house minority leader nancy pelosi and others who have said actually this has been nothing but a win for kim jong-un because it has given him the international stature he wanted among other things. >> i love this narrative they so live in an alternate universe whether it's ms13 having a spark of dignity in them or whether it's the president getting played. if anybody got played in the last few weeks, it's kim. remember, what the president achieved. he got them to commit to a summit for the first time in 65 years, but most important of all
, he got our hostages back, without one pallete of cash being delivered. compare that to obama and the disastrous jcpoa iran deal. pete: you know, doctor what's the most tricky part about this getting this across the finish line is it actually making the meeting happen, verifying it, what are you most concerned about? >> i think this man is now desperate. i think the fact that he's having this meeting within hours of the cancellation means we have a better than 50% chance of having the meeting in singapore. the tricky thing is making sure that whatever is signed at that summit if it happens actually happens on the ground. we need to have u.s. inspectors, unfettered access to all sites, military and civilian and also we need to have snap inspections where we can just get there within 24 hours and check out one of those nuclear sites. that's going to be the real, you know, devil of the detail there. pete: boy that's right. and u.s. inspectors. griff: dr. gorka thank you very
much. it sounds like this is going to move forward we shall watch and seek more guidance from you later. pete: what do you got? >> save me some of that barbecue. pete: you want some? done just come up on the amtrak. well, coming up vladimir putin may have more time for horseback riding, karate and fishing very soon. the best political future coming up. go did double doppler griff: did you see this family? what did he say to them that family joins us live, coming up. when in unfamiliar waters, hundreds of miles from base-- all that training and discipline pay off , and you find out what your team is really made of... i win! nuh uh, i win! and these exotic waters? all thanks to rewards from my navy federal flagship credit card.

when she grows up she wants to be a famous police officer and then, when she gets tired of that, she wants to become president. that's okay. abby: what a sweet moment that was so what exactly did trump say in that touching moment? lisa and bruce alexander along with their new famous four year old daughter katherine join us this morning. great to have you all on and what a sweet moment that was. i want to start lisa with you on this story of katherine because you all thought your parenting years were over how did cat get into your life? >> well it was in 2012 we went to the march for life, the mass at st. matthews and there was a guest speaker that had adopted their family had adopted six of their children, all six of them, and the mother looked to be my age, and so i later got in touch with her and she in fact was close to my age which was 48 at the time and then that started
the whole process. we just felt called by the holy spirit to follow that path and that's where we have and we have katherine. abby: bruce the minute you looked into kat's eyes what went through your mind? >> this is my daughter and i know that sounds strange or almost counterintuitive but clearly, as lisa said, you know, we felt called to this moment and we felt called to kat and ka t specifically and so it was an incredible moment. same as if meeting any one of the birth of any of our other four children. abby: i have two adopted sisters , it is an incredible experience for anyone whose been through that lisa just to remind our audience though it was katherine's mom who gave birth and found out that kat had an opioid dependency and decided to give her up for adoption how is she doing now. she's four years old. >> she's just a typical four year old. even from the time we got her
she was weened in the hospital so medically, i think all the medical problems as far as the doctors told us were fine and you would from the day we got her, there was nothing different abby: she is such a beautiful girl. bruce, walk us through that moment you took her up on stage with president trump earlier this week. he has now made katherine famous , walk us through that moment what was going on in your mind and what do you think katherine was thinking in that moment? >> well, the first thing was is we were certainly not expecting to go up there. we were aware that as part of the larger gala that there would be some recognition of adoption, the adoption option, so we're just focused on that and then of course the president said come on up katherine and at that point in time, it was almost surreal from that point, you know, forward, and we made our way to the stage, katherine and
i and then one of our other daughters, taylor we also made it up there. i'm not sure what was going on in katherine's mind at that time but i will tell you she's aware who the president is, so at least from that aspect i think she thought it was at least going to be interesting probably entertaining she was thinking. abby: bruce what was he saying to you in that moment? >> i have to, you know, sort of caveat it or frame it by saying the president was incredibly gracious. as we got up to the stage, he thanked katherine for coming up, asked her how she was doing. he mentioned he was happy that she was there. him and i, we had a brief exchange as well. he thanked me for also coming up , but also acknowledged our efforts in this particular story and i will also say that most of
his attention, and i certainly can recognize that as a five- time father was quite frankly genuinely given towards katherine. abby: well what a beautiful young woman you guys are raising thank you for being with us and foretelling the special story so many can relate to and bruce, please tell her how beautiful she is and how much we love having her on thank you all. >> thank you. abby: good luck. all right coming up on the show facebook under fire for censoring conservatives but mark zuckerberg he has got a solution he wants to create his own supreme court. will that actually work? plus, hillary clinton attacking fox news, again. >> it's not just fox, it's now sinclair, where they are essentially delivering propaganda. abby: sean spicer used to deal with a lot of attacks in media as white house press secretary. he is here to react to everything going on today including those comments from hillary clinton. he's up next. >> ♪ ♪

commercial break and they said the biggest challenge is not getting barbecue sauce all over our whites so they had to eat like this. griff: you have to. pete: feeling great though, beautiful day. abby: it is and we've got a barbecue fest, barbecue chains from all over the united states have come here to our plaza with some amazing barbecue so if you're in the area come this way we'll take care of you. pete: kicking off summer. griff: do you know who want come here and eat that barbecue is sean spicer. pete: he wishes he could. griff: shawn how are you good morning are you jealous? >> you know, i am i used to do fleet week up there so i would have been right by that plaza where were you guys 10 years ago abby: so shawn what is the right way to eat that you don't spill on your whites? >> you put a lot in the napkins you don't want to get barbecue sauce especially the thing that's interesting is on a weekend you're hard pressed to
find a dry cleaner so you better be very very careful over a three day weekend. griff: that's a good point shawn and you're hard pressed to find, i was just going to turn this segment because we've got to get to this breaking news and that is the meeting in the dmz north korea and south korea meeting kim jong-un and talking about possibly getting that meeting between president trump and that summit on june 12. what is your reaction what are you hearing? >> well, look, i think president trump is the master negotiator. he understood that by pulling away the one thing that kim jong-un wanted which is the face to face meeting that he put, he got back in the driver's seat, so kim knows that this meeting is the only shot he has at being seen on the world stage but the united states and president trump, vice president pence, john bolton and mike pompeo and secretary mattis are all focused on the fact that we need real
concessions and a real work plan to denuclearize the korean peninsula before that meeting starts and i think that you're going to see kim do whatever he can to make concessions if they want to get that meeting on track on june 12. griff: so i'm guessing on monday sarah heck is just going to get softball after softball about how these developments are. >> well, tuesday -- griff: giving credit when credit is due. pete: will they give him credit ever? >> no. because it's like the election. he lost, he isn't going to win the election or win the election and then he wins the election and says well he didn't win the electoral vote even the popular vote even that's really how the game is in place so what hen ultimately gets a deal they will still mock the way in which he got it because it's not the way that they think that he should get it and part of this is that president trump isn't a politician. he's not conforming to the
historically norms and protocols everybody else has so when he gets these accomplishments in terms of foreign policy and domestic policy the media and the establishment doesn't know what to make of it. abby: sometimes that unpredict ability can work to your advantage when it cops to diplomacy. speaking of the election hillary clinton is still talking about what happened in 2016 at harvard yesterday talking on a panel and she used that moment to attack fox news and says our democracy is in crisis. >> demonstratesing who have a very particular point of view, or a commercial perspective to try to sell have really dominat ed the tv market. it's not just fox. it's now sin clair, where they are essentially delivering propaganda, so we need more people to speak up and speak out and we need more outlets. we need more sources of reliable information. right now, we are living through a crisis in our democracy.
there certainly are not tanks in the street but what's happening today goes to the heart of who we are as a nation and i say this not as a democrat who lost an election but as an american afraid of losing a country. abby: i actually do agree with her, shawn where she says we do need more sources we need more accountability when we are reporting facts and stories and the names behind those sources but she says we need more outlet s to deliver news as if we're not getting enough of those. >> look, abbey the left has dominated the media landscape for decades and they finally started to fear other outlets like fox, sinclair and others telling the truth. here is the thing i find fascinating when president trump criticized reporters or outlets the media and the left call it an attack on the first amendment when hillary clinton attacks fox it's an applause line. it seems as though the media only cares about certain outlets being criticized and complained about but when other outlets are complained about when fox news
was left out consistently during the obama administration there was no concern about attacks on the first amendment from the mainstream media. they sat on their hands. unless they're under attack they don't care about the first amendment. griff: shawn can you tell me whether or not the temperature is a bit colder at harvard than other places in the united states? because a lot of people out there are pointing out that the former secretary of state may have overdressed for that event. >> [laughter] i'm really not, i was not concerned i focus on whether or not the red sox are winning not what the temperature is. pete: shawn is not a weather guy we'll ask rick that question. griff: he's a very talented guy and author of a great new book you have to get out and read while at the beach this summer. abby: have a great weekend with your family. >> happy memorial day too, to all of those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice thank you guys for honoring those and what a great story on adoption and life you did. abby: it was really beautiful thank you so much shawn. have a good saturday.
all right we wanted to get to other headlines we're following this morning a lot of those, an american hostage is finally coming home after two years behind bars in venezuela. president trump tweeting just moments ago about the release of joshua holt, saying good news about the release of the american hostage from venezuela, should be landing in d.c. this evening and be in the white house with his family at about 7:00 p.m. the great people of utah, my home state, that's so great, will be very happy. police arrested the 26-year-old in venezuela and back in 2016 accusing him of supporting assault weapons more on that later today also thousands of people saying their final goodbyes to a baltimore officer murdered in the line of duty. law enforcement from across the state united in grief lining the highway for miles during the funeral procession for amy capri o, a sea of uniforms honoring to pay their respects. the heartbroken community as you can imagine holding a candlelight vigil for the nearly four year veteran. she was run over as she responded a burglary and four

is he crazy? is he he so volatile he might walk out that was the issue with ronald regan with the talks to gorbachev he saw something he didn't like and said well that's it i'm out of here and he was able to get an agreement more to his liking literally a few months later that might be the same thing president trump is doing showing a willingness to walk away before they even met and now we're getting all of this stuff happening that could telegraph the talks. griff: neil quickly, whose coming up on the show? neil: well we're getting into that issue with liz cheney, the wyoming congresswoman, the daughter of the former vice president, and ken starr remember him? now that was an investigation of bill clinton that some said veered off course and a lot of similarities we'll explore. abby: that's a great show neil we'll see you. neil: bring me some food. pete: thanks neil. griff: we've saved the best for last for our barbecue bash right over there. get your barbecue on.
