[applause] ♪ summertime feeling ♪ i'm feeling, i'm feeling it. >> not officially summer but pretty darn close. abby: june 22nd is june. pete: we're happy because ed henry. abby: i feel like the competition is already getting heated just signatures here next to you. pete: we haven't talked about it yet. ed: i was at an airport. i like your reporting but more importantly, beat pete. people love this competition. pete: he has been rigging it, whatever it's going to be. i don't know. maybe he knows. i'm sure he does. he has been practicing like
the canoe. we will find out later in the show. abby: is there one today? pete: i don't know. ainsley: you have to wait for it if you were watching the news yesterday, so much has happened over the last 12 hours. most importantly the summit with north korea is still happening in singapore on june 12th. president trump meeting with leaders of north korea. there he is. the number two man in north korea. i have think this is the second time a leader from north korea has been to the white house in history. it was supposed to be a drop-off of a letter and ended up being a two hour meeting between these two. pete: he delivered a big envelope. a trumpian sized envelope i think is fair to say. as we have come to be accustomed to with this administration. nothing goes to script. supposed to be dropped off. turned out it was a two-hour meeting. you have inside information a little bit about that as well. president trump had this to say about that meeting as well. listen. >> we'll be meeting on june 12th in singapore. 'went very well.
a really get to know you kind of a situation. we have gotten to know their people very well. we will -- you people are going to have to travel because you will be in singapore on june 12th. and i think it will be a process. and i have never said it goes in one meeting. i think it's going to be a process. but the relationships are building and that's very positive. it will be a beginning. i don't see and i have never said it happens in one meeting. you are talking about years of hostility. years of problems. years of really hatred between some different nations. ed: you see the president managing expectations saying this is not going to be one meeting denuclearization. it will be the be all, end awesome think of how much progress was made. the idea that the president the united states is going to sit down with kim jong un and just a week ago, when the president wrote that other letter that said we are pulling out of the june 12th summit. the democrats like nancy pelosi was on capitol hill saying kim jong un is celebrating. this is a disaster. we lost our best chance at peace.
they basically have been cheering defeat here. they have been cheering let's not have this denuclearization summit. abby: you talked about setting the right expectations. smart to do it. playing the long game. he knows that the media wants -- a lot of the them want this to fail. they don't want the president to succeed. not everyone in the media. folks laugh at this. notes if they walk away from singapore and not that handshake at the end saying this is not the end of the 70 year war. we are denuclearizing this parity of the world. they will say that is a failure on the president's part. he is saying that's not how this works. diplomacy is a very long game. this is the first of what we hope will be many, many meetings. pete: totally expectation-setting here. june 12th becomes this holliday on the calendar. no, it's just the beginning. all of this feels like the speed of business. a businessman not the speed of protocol or politics or washington. it was off. now it's back on. going to happen on the day said. no need for that date to
slide. i want to know what's in the envelope though. i really do. someone knows. and i guess at some point we will find out. abby: they knew who they were delivering to, that's for sure. ed: president said he would give approach to north korea. delivering on that. see what happens in the summit. he said again and again he would get tough on trade. he went forward this past week on those tariffs aimed at mexico, the eu, as well as canada in terms of steel and loom. aluminum. i'm standing up for my country. justin trudeau in canada is standing up for his country saying he is angry about this. seems like is he sort of taking it to a new level. pete: oh, justin from canada. he didn't just take issue with our trade policies which the president has been very clear about. wife he is doing it he went at the troops. listen to justin from canada. >> our soldiers, who had fought and died together on the beaches of world war ii,
on the mountains of afghanistan and have stood shoulder to shoulder in some of the most difficult places in the world that are always there for each other, somehow this is insulting to them. the idea that we are somehow a national security threat to the united states is quite frankly insulting and unacceptable. abby: this is something the president has campaigned on from the very early days of his campaign. he has not been a fan of nafta for a very long time. so, you shouldn't be totally surprised when he is saying i'm following up with the things i promised i would do on the campaign trail. because this is what i promised i would do when i came into office. ed: have you policy differences without turning into on the beaches of normed this hanormandy. this has changed everything. abby: the president is throwing everything at the wall here saying, you know what? no, we have gotten the short end of the stick here continuously. there needs to be a change. as you said, ed a lot of people aren't happy about this. pete: shouldn't be surprised. i don't say this often but i
literally stood shoulder to shoulder with canadian troops in afghanistan. they are great folks. and they do loft wonderful things. they also have a lot of caveats that don't allow them to actually do combat in certain situations. not to dismiss canadian troops they do a lot of great stuff in a lot of places. it's not about insulting his troops. his troops aren't reading a trade deal as insult to them. saying, listen, trump thinks it's a bad teal. is he a businessman. he wants different terms. let's talk about it negotiations. why do you have to talk about worl world war ii. abby: pull at the heart strings and get emotional. let us know what you think about that. firstname.lastname@example.org. this is another story popping up over the last few months. started of heating up more towards the end of this week. joy-ann reid who works for another network show is a blog post. ed: many blog posts. ash be a they keep coming to the surface. recent one has senator john mccain as the head of the virginia tech shooter. so she has said in the past that someone has hacked her
account. they hacked it. they put on things that i would never do. they have the fbi investigate this thing and since seem to have crumbled. i don't know where that went. ed: in order to bail her out initially she was saying she was attacking homosexuals in blog posts. pete: 9/11 truther. ed: i was hacked. maybe the russians did it. they called in the fbi u nbc news backed her up on that. your money has been spent investigating whether she was hacked. oh, now she is saying oh. pete: talking about fake news. enough to she is saying i apologize. apologies are fine. here is what she said. there are things i deeply regret and embarrassed by and things i would have said differently and things where my position has changed. today i'm sincerely apologizing. again, to your point, ed, and tucker said this last night so well on your program. what is the penalty for perpetuating a hoax.
it's not okay to yell fire when there wasn't a fire or i was hacked when i knew i wasn't hacked. had a position you said terrible things in the past own it and be how are today. if you were fooled by a hoax that 9/11 was inside job. did terrible things about john mccain. that was you in the past. own that defend that. be fair about that. don't lie to us and say someone hacked our account. abby: that's the conversation someone is having right now. at what point do you ultimately fire someone, right? race is one thing and i think everyone has agreed across the board that no one should stand for that this is really bad stuff. i don't know that anyone should stand by that either. ed: here is what they say. some of the things written by joy on her old blog are obviously hateful and hurtful. joy has apologized publicly and privately and said she has grown and evolved in the many years sense and we know this to be true. people do grow and evolve. abby: than that is true. pete: if you are a liberal you apologize.
if you are a conservative you get fired. i shouldn't do this, but you can read what i wrote in college. i was the publisher of the -- go for it i said nothing terrible. i just had opinions as a college kid and i ran a publication. take that put it on the internet. put it on the screen. talk about what a terrible personal i am. everyone changes. i went to war. you do things. have you different perspectives in life. you learn things. i can have empathy and sympathy for joy reid. i can't believe i would ever say that it's true. i care about her positions now if she is truly sorry. i don't want to live in the mob where everyone gets fired for what they say. you shouldn't be a 9/11 truther and represent yourself falsely. abby: put john mccain on the virginia tech shooter. i wish you saw, ed, on my face when i say i shouldn't be saying this right now. ed: we l. be going through that old blog. that old pete blog. a be an i will bring you other headlines we are following closely.
we begin with a fox news alert. two tourists are found stabbed to death inside of a las vegas hotel room. it's now being ruled a double homicide. police say the coupley in vegas as part of a vietnamese tourist group when they didn't show up for a tour. circus circus casino did a welfare check. no word on any suspects at this time. keep an eye on this one. key suspect charged with murdering a tennessee deputy will face the death penalty. they are charged in the killing of deputy sergeant daniel baker after nearly 48 hour manhunt wiggins was captured by tennessee highway patrol trooper. using baker's hand cuffs to arrest wiggins. shot dead in patrol car after responding to 9/11 call about a suspicious vehicle. also, this definition secretary james mattis slamming china for militarizing artificial islands in the south china sea. listen to this. >> despite china's claims to the contrary, the placement of these weapons system is tied directly to military
use for the purposes of intimidation and coercion it calls in to question china's broader goals. abby: that was secretary in singapore. mattis warning of much longer consequences. international community. the secretary making those remarks overnight at international security forum in singapore. president trump raising america's first line of defense as the coast guard welcomes a new commanders. >> america is safe because our coast guard is strong. these are exciting times for america. we are being respected again. we're being respected abroad. abby: admiral karl schultz relieving admiral karl as the 26 commanders commanding since 2014. schultz was commander for all u.s. coast guards from the rocky mountains to the arabian gulf. those are your headlines.
pete: thanks, abby. the surges adding 220,000 jobs in may. media melting down over a tweet. big surprise. >> why would the president tell all of america to look at the jobs numbers if the jobs numbers were not good. >> insider trading where can you get the cheat sheet directly from the president. pete: there you go. they won't focus on good news. stu varney will. is he up early with us on a saturday. ed: do you roseanne without roseanne an update on a story that won't go away. sometimes,
bipolar i disorder can make you feel unstoppable. but mania, such as unusual changes in your mood, activity or energy levels, can leave you on shaky ground. help take control by asking about your treatment options. vraylar is approved for the acute treatment of manic or mixed episodes of bipolar i disorder in adults. clinical studies showed that vraylar reduced overall manic symptoms. vraylar should not be used in elderly patients with dementia due to increased risk of death or stroke. call your doctor about fever, stiff muscles, or confusion, which may mean a life-threatening reaction, or uncontrollable muscle movements, which may be permanent. side effects may not appear for several weeks. high cholesterol and weight gain;
high blood sugar, which can lead to coma or death; decreased white blood cells, which can be fatal; dizziness upon standing; falls; seizures; impaired judgment; heat sensitivity; and trouble swallowing may occur. you're more than just your bipolar i. ask your doctor about vraylar. pete: hour before the may jobs report came out yesterday, the president tweeted he was excited to
see the numbers. the report was excellent. an 18-year low in the unemployment rate. but the media made it all about that tweet. listen. >> a lot of people scratching their heads about why the president decided to tweet about it beforehand. why would the president tell all of america to look at the jobs numbers if the jobs numbers were not good? >> he was so eager to trumpet the news he broke years of presidential protocol. >> insider trading you can get the cheat sheet inside the president. first time the president has broken the rules when it comes to sharing sensitive, sometimes even classified information. abby: he broke the rules. the host of varney and cohosco,host of varney and comp. abby: want jobs numbers wants you to know about. >> the media wants you to be distracted from the very good news about the economy. we got that great news at 8:30 yesterday. no matter what the president hinted before hand. it was great news. the media just wanted to distract andy vert attention
away from the news on jobs. pete: insider trading, stuart. >> stop it. come on, son. get out of here. ed: there is protocol you are not supposed to break it we should acknowledge that. >> did he break it? he hinted it might be okay. he got the news before hand. ed: the white house always gets it the night before. >> that is not the story. look at this. the story is 3.8% unemployment. lowest in a generation. you have never seen that in this generation. 3.8%. 5.9%. that's the unemployment rate for black folks that san all-time low. it's never been down at that level before. same story for hispanics. 223 new thousand jobs created. you are on the road to prosperity. ed: not according to nancy pelosi. nancy pelosi said look at this, may's job report shows that strong employment numbers mean little to the families hit with soaring new costs under the
republican's watch. first she was talking about crumbs with the tax cut. now she is saying these numbers don't help. abby: is that insulting? >> i don't know about insulting. but it's a message of desperation. the democrats do not have a growth plan. they don't have one. so they have to criticize the president's growth plan because it is working. and it is working. you know, the president came to office saying i'm going to make america great again. and the keystone to that whole operation was deregulate and lower taxes. he did both. and now we're seeing the fruits of that. abby: what is she referring to there in that comment when she said it's going up for some families. >> you could make the argument gasoline prices are up a little. that is true. you can make the argument mortgage rates are up a little. that is accurate. she could make the argument that healthcare costs are rising. that's not because of president trump. that is because of obamacare lingers on in our economy. pete: so she is looking for the lemons in the lemonade which of course she would do being in the minority. they do have a growth plan.
it's a government growth plan. her view is you solve these problems by growing government programs for people. >> stop it, peter. pete: it a growth plan. >> that growth plan is tax and spend. pete: of course. >> it does not produce growth. it produces virtually no growth for a long period of time. the best we got in the eight years of tax and spend obama years, was 2%. that's all we got. we have now had 15 month of the trump economy and we have 3% growth. i think we have a very good shot at going to 4% growth by the end of this year. on target. abby: i was looking at numbers last night to compare where we're. you forget october of 200910% unemployment. how far we have come. >> we have come a very, long way. especially the last 15, 16 months of the trump's presidency. we are on the road to prosperity. the democrats cannot admit that going into the november elections.
ed: stuart varney, appreciate it. >> thank you. ed: come up, you are not going to believe this story. uber driver in can yo custody fr murder after shooting one of his passengers. what went wrong ahead. abby: plus, the left taking aim at the women of the white house. why doesn't care. we'll talk about that next ♪ put on a show ♪ yes, you had to be a big shot ♪ did you ♪ you had to move to the -- and that 2% cash back adds up to thousands of dollars each year... so i can keep growing my business in big leaps! what's in your wallet?
when it comes to strong bones, are you on the right path? we have postmenopausal osteoporosis and a high risk for fracture, so with our doctors we chose prolia® to help make our bones stronger. only prolia® helps strengthen bones by stopping cells that damage them with 1 shot every 6 months. do not take prolia® if you have low blood calcium, are pregnant, are allergic to it, or take xgeva®. serious allergic reactions, like low blood pressure; trouble breathing; throat tightness; face, lip or tongue swelling, rash, itching or hives have happened.
tell your doctor about dental problems, as severe jaw bone problems may happen or new or unusual pain in your hip, groin, or thigh, as unusual thigh bone fractures have occurred. speak to your doctor before stopping prolia®, as spine and other bone fractures have occurred. prolia® can cause serious side effects, like low blood calcium; serious infections, which could need hospitalization; skin problems; and severe bone, joint, or muscle pain. if your bones aren't getting stronger isn't it time for a new direction? why wait? ask your doctor about prolia.
already, putting another 300 structures in danger. and president trump's long promised border wall is, yes, one step closer to completion. ♪ build that wall ♪ build that wall. >> do not worry, we are going to build the wall. okay? ed: he called it a big beautiful wall construction of barrier wall is yes underway. the project expected to replace 14 miles of the wall. topping it off with an anti-climbing plate. abby? abby: all right. thank you, ed. white house women took a verbal beating this week from those on the left from the celebrity comedians. take a look at. this you know, ivanka, that's a beautiful photo of you and your child. let me just say one mother to another. do something about your dad's immigration practices, you feckless [bleep]. well, if is an expert on hypocrites, suspects sarah huckabee sanders, that was not a look-based joke that was about her ugly
personality. abby: it wag an ugly week. speculating first lady melania trump's whereabouts after she underwent surgery, why doesn't anyone seem to care? here to debate senior advisor for the trump 2020 campaign katrina pierson and commentator and contributor for the hill wendy osefo. thank you for waking up early for us. >> thank you. abby: it has been a very ugly week across the board. a lot of hate speech. particularly with women in the white house. why doesn't there seem to be more of an uproar about this? >> people do care, abby. the question is why don't the feminists care? why doesn't the media care and the reason is because there is this perversion of feminism today that essentially discriminates against women who don't subscribe to their political and ideology and you can't really do anything about it because the media is largely owned and operated by left leaning individuals who have created this atmosphere or echo chamber that
perpetuates this faux feminist narrative it makes it very difficult even forever those who want to get out there and support these women and the attacks against them to be effective. abby: wendy, what do you think about that you have an easier time forgiving someone or letting it slide by if you disagree with the joke or making fun of them in some way. >> i don't think it's about feminism and speaking up. i think it's whether you sit on the left side or right side of the aisle. whenever an individual is attacked you should speak up. we shouldn't politicize this because right is right and wrong is wrong. however what i do want to make sure we keep at the forefront of this conversation is the white house has not always been very friendly to people outside of the white house either. at the end of the day, when you are looking at this and look at there this from a top down model. if we want citizens to make sure that they speak kindly about individuals in the white house, i would say to the white house, make sure you speak kindly. abby: melania has. a lot of people have been speculating and making comments where she has been. they had to so much talk
about it i see the media is working overtime speculating where i am. what i'm doing. rest assured, i'm here at the white house with my family. feeling great and working hard on behalf of children. and the american people. katrina, it got to the point where she actually had to publicly speak out. >> that's because there is a political slant to all of this. we have to be honest if we are going to talk about the double standard when it comes to criticizing women in such vulgar and profane ways, which is what we are seeing today. this notion that the white house has anything to do with that political discourse, i hate to break it to you, but as a black woman and a republican, i can promise you these types of attacks, whether it's racist, sexist, or misogynist have come long before 2016. all we have to do is look at sarah palin and what happened to her and her family including the horrible names that her special needs child was called. and to the vulgar sexual references to her 14-year-old daughter. this is not something that's brand new. but it is solely relegated to conservatives u.
abby: your response. >> that's not true, katrina. as a black woman myself, i can say to you we shouldn't use that as necessarily our straw man to say these attacks are warranted or unwanteunwant warranted: >> here we go with the slave good history. >> no. [talking at the same time] >> let me finish. >> no. you want to sit here and personally attack me, wensdy. abby: the question i want to ask you ladies, separate. i can't hear either one of you we can't have that conversation. >> you said slavery is good history. >> all our history is good history and you brought up slavery. >> just last week candace owens someone who doesn't group think like the left she was at the called a coon. tell me wendy when is the last time someone in the media calls you that. >> every time i get on fox
news someone calls me a coon and a monkey. abby: we will have candace owens on -- we have to leave it right there. thank you so much for being on with us this morning. we appreciate it. >> thanks, abby. >> thank you. abby: early for a fiery debate like this. john brennan furthering his attacks on president trump. >> i think mr. trump has demonstrated a paranoia and insecurity as well as a real concern about the investigation that is underway. abby: he says he is not going to stop until integrity returns to the white house. dan bongino is here. he's going to react. that's next. and can do you roseanne without roseanne? abc, they are trying to, apparently. an update on that straight ahead ♪ ♪ ♪
>> $17 million is a really huge amount. but the greater cost to the public is that we paid all this money and we don't find out the truth that we're not going to get what we paid for. so the test is going to be both in the fbi and mueller investigation is we'll be see the factsment the prohibitive cost in all of this would be lingering doubts.
>> that was jonathan turley last night on tucker's show. here to react dan bongino former secret service agent and host of the dan bongino show. and also an nratv contributor. 17 million bucks the doj has now revealed their spending report. are we getting a good return on our investment for that $17 million of taxpayer money? [laughter] >> pete, what is this the comedy hour. change careers on me? $17 million? are we getting our money's worth? we are getting worked. worked with a capital w. i grew up in new york city in the streets of queens there. that was -- you are getting worked. you are getting screwed so badly the american people by this sham investigation. i have never seen anything like it. let me walk you through for a second for a couple things. the case was founded on a total sham. we now know that there is russian collusion with the clintons and the democrats. but bob mueller's investigating donald trump for it, number one.
pete, number two, the mueller probe team is stacked with anti--trumpers. two of whom are lawyers. this is a fact by the way. i encourage anyone to look this up, who actually represented people before hand in the clinton sphere. they represented clintontonians involved in the case. this is a total scam. everybody is getting worked. abby: where does it end. >> trump board get $100 every time they hit a bulls eye. i have no idea. perfectly fair question for you to ask. what are we paying for? we are paying for 1001 charge george papadopoulos for fibbing to the fbi. shut the country down almost two years now and paid almost $17 million. obviously i'm passionate about it this is suspect setting. i was a federal agent. this is a serious thing to have the power to take away
someone's freedom and the american pack taxpayer me includeside pay foorg total sham. ed: we have been told the official version of events this whole investigation started when george papadopoulos was having drinks in london and drunken conversation about potential russian collusion when, in fact, john brennan and others are now under the microscope as to whether they were starting this much sooner. john brennan, as you know, wrote this op-ed yesterday in the "the washington post" saying i will speak out until integrity returns to the white house. here's what he said on morning joe and then i will get your reaction. >> i think mr. trump has demonstrated a paranoia and insecurity as well as a real concern about the investigation that is underway. certainly his tweets do not seem like they are coming from a person of innocence and confidence. mr. trump is going to promote his narrative. he certainly is going to continue to try to discredit the fbi and the cia and others. but, i think make no mistake about it, the american justice system, i think, is
going to prevail in this endeavor to get to the bottom of who might have been collaborating and working with foreign actors to try to undermine the integrity of the election u. ed: dan, a lecture on justice from john brennan. >> john brennan. no single figure in america history has done more to discredit the intelligence community than this liar. not only is he a liar. he is a liar about being a liar. he has been -- guys, he has already busted lying. he said he didn't know about the dossier. yet, he briefed people up on the hill about elements of the dossier that then appeared in a letter to the fbi. he is lying. he is just making this up. one more thing by the way. he keeps avoiding this topic about foreign intelligence and his relationship with them. he's the one who met with british intelligence people. this is open reporting. this is already out there. what they call director level meetings and exchanged information about trump
before this case was even started by the fbi. hey, john, why don't you tell us about that? he keeps avoiding that topic and switching it to trump. ed: dan bongino, appreciate you coming. in. abby: always fired up. good to see you, dan. good to see you. >> you too. abby: highly anticipated report on the fbi handling of the clinton email investigation is hit with a new delay. the senate judiciary committee pushing its hearing with inspector general michael horowitz to june 11th as we wait for the release of his report. the report to be released. byron york with the washington examiner explains the holdup. >> it is clearly being held up by redactions. by privacy concerns and by frankly, i think by feet being dragged at various places in the bureaucracy. >> interesting. abby: now we are being told horowitz' report may be released next week. uber driver accused of shooting and killing a passenger now under arrest.

antiscience agenda the more confused our kids will be and unstable they will be as adults. pete: they get confused and doesn't work. hyper feminized toys such as barbies. >> whatever that means. pete: no barbies or trucks on either side. all right. where have we gone? second story here, louisiana passed some of the most strict abortion laws in the country, i believe. they are setting the limit at 15 weeks. tell us about this. >> well, what's interesting about this, is this was a democratic governor that actually signed this bill which just goes to show that the pro-life movement really shouldn't be a right or left issue. it is a human rights issue. unborn rights are human rights. 15 weeks an unborn child is already starting to look like his or her mother. they might already start to feel pain at this point. so this is a common sense decent human rights law. and i wish the rest of the country would follow suit. pete: alley, it's great to see streets taking the prerogative. you live there and vote for that and vote for people who support that good for you. >> exactly.
pete: thank you for highlighting that story. third story here. so, california keeps acting like a country. it has now banned state funded travel to oklahoma because it considers the policies there discriminatory toward lbgt folks. what do you make of that? >> let's look at these discriminatory policies. so oklahoma has simply said that private adoption agencies can operate out of their religious convictions by saying hey, same sex couples might not be able to adopt. you don't have to agree with that particular adoption agency to agree with their right to do so. like you said, california is operating like a country. they operate in a world that doesn't honor religious freedom or the first amendment or the constitution for that matter. this is the same state that said pro-life adoption agencies or pro-life health centers you have to advertise for abortion. they also said that hey,
we're going to ban services that promote any type of sexual orientation reform. this is not necessarily a state that honors free speech or freedom of religion. i'm not surprised to see them operating this way. pete: not even a state that forces its own law. states where you can't go and doesn't enforce their own immigration laws. >> exactly. pete: allie beth stucky, appreciate your time this morning. thank you for catching us up. >> thank you. pete: he was held in contempt of congress, but former a.g. eric holder now criticizing president trump's pardons, listen. >> the president is trying to send a message to some people who potentially might be involved in the russia investigation. pete: always about signaling. former white house press secretary sean spicer here to react next hour. don't miss that and it's national camping month. i camped last summer. i'm camping this summer for sure. we're camping out on the plaza. we are taking a look at the perfect rv's for families.

early. ed: not that cool. pete: kind of fun. everyone else is still doing their thing. i'm out. see you in the morning. abby: good morning to you all of you. happy saturday morning. it actually is saturday today. pete: which means tonight is saturday night. if you are tired, ed, why would people be waking up this morning at 7:00 really tired? ed: i don't know. ed: because they are winning so much. ed: tired of winning. pete: so much winning going on you are winning on your couch. get a cup of coffee. don't get dressed. don't listen to brian kilmeade. huge jobs report. ed: huge will. pete: huge for this country. 223,000 jobs added in may. april up in up by 15,000. unemployment rate at 3.8. 18-year lee. look at the labor participation rate. g.d.p. estimate. they were talking 3% growth. the estimate could potentially be 4.7?
ed: 4.7. be aable they thought the job numbers would be around 180,000. 223,000 jobs added. unemployment 3.8%. that shows that people are out looking for jobs. the companies are hiring. that is something to celebrate. that is where you want to be in the country. ed: i'm glad pete is finally admitting the obama recovery set things up really well. pete: ed, where did you go talking points. labor participation rate is so huge, too. you are right. the unemployment rate can be deceptive. people are leaving the. ed: "new york times" in the obama years pretty low. the labor participation rate was ridiculous. historic lows. people were not looking for work. they were sort of giving up. and now there is optimism so people are not only getting jobs others that don't have them are getting off the couch and say i want to find something. i'm optimistic. there is excitement. abby: this is why a lot of people go to the polls to vote. i would say the most important issue for most people is the economy and how they feel they're personally doings. how much they can provide
for their families. that's why have you democrats that are trying to figure out what their messaging is, right? what do they say the mid terms are around the corner. economy is doing well. how do they combat that? pete: "new york times" is often failing. they didn't fail me today. abby: first time i have ever heard you say that. pete: every once in a while i try throw a curve ball in there. this is a "new york times" headline. look at this he had line from the "new york times." we ran out of words to describe how good the job numbers are now, if that's not admission, i don't know what is. a lot of people vote with their pocketbooks. you are right, abby. culture is a big thing too. if you feel like you are losing your country people are motivated by that too. if you are a democrat running for office tough to see what you are running on. ed: that's why they are beating trump up and you got maxine waters talking about impeaching him and leaders are saying calm that down. that might back fire. abby: democrat are pushing
back saying this is not a winning message. nancy pelosi is not as excited as you are about the job numbers. abby: she has to spin something. may's job report show employment numbers mean little to the family's hit with soaring new cost under the production' watch. she is saying this is all not good news. ed: gas prices have been up. healthcare costs are up. we had stuart varney on last hour who is basically saying yeah, there is a hangover from obamacare and democrats are simply getting desperate. watch. >> a message of desperation, isn't it? the democrats do not have a growth plan. they don't have one. so they have to criticize out president's growth plan because it is working. and it is working. you know, the president came to office saying i'm going to make america great again. and the keystone to that whole operation was deregulate and lower taxes. i did both. we are seeing evidence of that we are on the road to prosperity. the democrats cannot admit
that going into the november elections. pete: cut regulations, cut taxes. fight for better trade deals and jobs will come back. specifically in certain industries into this country. and here's some gains that were made in certain industries as well. number of jobs that have come back, 31,000 in retail. 29,000 in healthcare. big for the president. 25,000 in construction. 18,000 in manufacturing. 19,000 in transportation. those are supposed to be the jobs of yesterday according to the obama economy. they are never coming back. abby: that was just last month. right? pete: we are talking about a one month gain and revised up in april. and the g.d.p. going north. you could see those numbers going even higher. so when you wonder why the president is staring down china or staring down the eu and saying have you four times the amount of tariffs on the stuff we sell you versus us. i'm free trade, i'm for fair trade. my businesses here can compete better than yours. you know that. so you tax my goods. that's what businesses are state-of-the-arting to
realize. abby: give you some real leverage. that's good news. also that happened yesterday. other potential good news on the world stage. you had the number two man in north korea was supposed to deliver a note from kim jong un to president trump at the white house. you could see there a very big letter. we don't know exactly what's in it yet. supposed to be sort of a handoff. ended um being a two-hour meeting between these two. he came out with the president and talked with the media for a good 20, 30 minutes and said the summit is on june 12th in singapore. here is a bit of what he had though say. >> we'll be meeting on june 12th in singapore. it went very well. it really get to know you kind of a situation. we have gotten to know their people very well. and we will -- you people are going to have to travel because you will be in singapore on june 12th. i think it will be a process. i never said it goes in one meeting. i think it's going to be a process. but the relationships are building and that's a very positive thing. it will be a beginning. i don't see and have never
said it happens in one meeting. you are talking about years of hostility, years of problems. years of really hatred between some different nations. art of the deal was a week ago. the president writes the other letter, the one in a smaller envelope that said, look, the summit is off. you got all this belligerent talk of nuclear war. kim jong un we are not going to be at the table until you fix that remember, remember what nancy pelosi said. she said because of that letter kim jong un was having a quote, unquote, giggle fit. and said kim jong un is the real winner here. that is what your democratic leader in the house of representatives said. that kim jong un is the real winner here. fast forward one week later and look at how it's turned. all of a sudden north korea is coming to us quite literally. first to new york to meet with secretary of state mike pompeo and then to the white house to meet with the commander-in-chief. abby: i wonder if the president sends a letter back how big it will be you know he likes to compete.
pete: it's a huge envelope. ed: it's a big, beautiful envelope. abby: ed, you know this from covering presidents in the past. you can't say he is not transparent. he stood out there 20, 30 minutes took every question from the press. you remember during the campaign days, hillary clinton went days and days and days, weeks and months without saying a word to the media. you can't complain and say he is not answering our questions. if anything, he wants to tell the media too much. his team is trying to pull him back and don't give all the information. peed peed is he setting expectations. june 12th is not going to be the be all end all. it's a process. we all have to root for this to work. ed: they are not going to give up missiles and rockets in one week. you hear the media saying this could take years. this is not done yet. okay. we are making progress. we are going a long way towards denuclearization. that's a. abby: possibly the reunification of north korea. think where we were 50 years ago the dmz.
we will see where this goes. we have a lot going on this morning. other headlines i want to bring you. starting with a fox news alert. two tourists are found stabbed to death inside of a las vegas hotel room. and it's now being ruled a double homicide. police say the couple was in vegas as part of a vietnamese tourist group when they didn't show up for a grand canyon tour circus circus hotel and casino did a welfare check of their room. no word yet on any suspects at this time. and a gruesome discovery. police finding three bodies in the home of a kidnapping suspect he is pulled over for a broken taillight. stuart is charged, can you see him right there, for allegedly holding a woman captive after she was found in his car. officials now scouring his massachusetts home for more bodies. >> we have used technology. many of you might have seen, it is ground penetrating radar. the search has been very thorough, is very painstaking and very much ongoing and remains active. abby: weldon is being held on 1-million-dollar bail.
and there is a new case on the national security council. president trump naming rear admiral doug fierce as national security advisor. the coast guard official is replacing a void left by tom bossert with the rank of deputy assistant to the president his duties will include coordinating interagency efforts during internarcotic response. goointer -- international response. bush 41 reading. this george and barbara bush, a great american love story a book written by his grand daughter, ellie sosa. the former president tweeting this enjoying a great book and ruferl walk down memory lane this morning. yet another reminder of just how lucky i have been in life. very proud of the author and co-author, too. abby: i love how close their family is and highlighting the marriage and the relationship that barbara and george had. will. pete: 70 years or something? abby: best friends. ed: he was held in contempt of congress. remember that? the former attorney general

investigation. abby: eric holder taking a swipe there of president trump over his use of presidential pardon. pete: this as the disgraced former attorney general sparks rumors of a potential 2020 run while in new hampshire. ed: joining us with his reaction former white house press secretary author of the upcoming book "the briefing, politics, the press, and the president. the one and only sean spicer. >> good morning, guys. ed: when he talks about presidential partisan i seem to remember the same eric holder was deputy attorney general for bill clinton in the middle of the marc rich pardon. >> i think there is a little bit of revisionist history going on by former attorney general. i also think let's call it what it is he is politics and eggs breakfast in new hampshire. this along with every other democrat thinking about running for office in 2020. trying to position himself in a unique space. there is going to be so little oxygen in the room when it comes to their first debate. it's pretty blatant that he is just trying to appeal to the extreme left of the democratic base in advance of the 2020 election.
pete: it's not just marc rich but also, of course, the obama administration pardon bradley manning out the door. isn't there a difference between pardoning at the last minute where you can't be held accountable and the president saying i'm pardons right now when i will still be up for re-election in the middle of my term. isn't he being more transparent and open about his prerogatives? >> sure. i think that's part of it. the other thing is, look, what i find so fascinating is, it's one thing to talk about the merits of the person being pardoned. the crime they committed whether they served their time and they're remorseful and asked for forgiveness, et cetera. what's really unique about these set of circumstances regarding these pardons is that everyone is speculating about what they mean and trying to understand what crystal ball they may look through. whereas not looking at them on the merits of it when we talk about marc rich or bradley manning or et cetera, we talked about who they were and whether or not they deserved a pardon. what crime they have committed. we lost that discussion and set of partisan.
wildly speculating what this might be mean and what we should be reading into all of this excepted for the fact that these individuals, the president feels as though they were treated unjustly or that they had served their time or a myriad of other reasons that he chose to pardon them. we lost the discussion about whether or not the person who has been pardoned was pardoned, you know, had paid their time. they were remorseful, et cetera, and goad on wild goose chases of speculation about what they may or may not mean in terms of something in the future. i think that's kind of what's been lost in this whole discussion. abby: sean, that never happens in our media landscape. >> crazy. abby: watching holder there though. i'm reminded i love your take on this. if he were to run for president who he has behind them as barack obama. two thick as thieves. calls them barack obama's wing man. makes me think about jeff sessions and president trump and how upset the president seems to be with jeff sessions. wishes he never hired him to begin with. is that the way it should be? should you be in partnership with the attorney general
and the president? >> i think it's a lot deeper than that the attorney general should be somebody that the president can rely on as the nation's top law enforcement officer. i think there is a very different set of circumstances here in terms of whether or not the attorney general should have told the president he was going to recuse himself and made that very clear before he took the job and went through the nomination process. but i do think that you should have an attorney general that is loyal to you, that understands the relationship and the events that are coming up and what it's going to take to go forward. if you come into a job and immediately recusing yourself, the question is are you the best person for that job to provide counsel to the administration, the president, and the american people. i think that's a decision that each president has to make for themselves as well as each candidate for attorney general. pete: briefly, play political stock picker for me. is eric holder a viable candidate in 2020. >> absolutely. there is no question about it i think he has a unique space as he just demonstrated. he can talk about, you know, an area of service and a niche in terms of pardons
and justice that no one else can because of his background. i think when you are going to have a ton of elected officials running talk about unique set of experiences, he carves out a very unique space. remember, because i truly do believe you are going to have 202, 5 people. credible candidates running on the dem side you don't need to get 30, 40, 50% out of the gate. you just need 7, 8, 9, 10% and you are a very viable candidate. i do think the next segment this whole ms-13 and whether or not people date. i heard that tease. i'm thinking to myself my gosh, i'm glad i'm married. abby: so true. pete: interesting stuff. abby: roseanne and joy reid under fire. roseanne fired. okay with apology: pete: the 30-year-old convicted millennial has finally left his parent's house. is that his bike in the back

>> yeah. not shocking to any of us. also a double standard when it comes to treatment who are conservatives or people who support conservative candidates. and, you know, roseanne barr got the death sentence for saying something putrid and repulsive. and it doesn't seem to happen on the other side. that being said, ed, whatever happened to someone apologizing and people simply accepting the apology? if joy reid really means the apology, i think that's a meaningful thing for her to do and people should accept it. ed: antwon, what say you? >> the only reason we are even having this discussion because there are people on the right who refuse to reject and denounce racism, bigotry and hate. and quite frankly, the red meat white wing toned down racist rhetoric is politically popular on the right. instead of denouncing that people on the right rather distract with something joy reid said 10 years ago who quite frankly was just in a political opinion and many people around here have indicated she has evolved
over time. so, it's very unfortunate that we having this discussion. i find more distraction by the right. ed: pardon me let you jump in on the joy reid part. you are claiming that people on the right are not denouncing racism. i heard roseanne get pillarried from everybody from left to right. >> i attacked her. ed: for saying something racist including matt schlapp. >> let me be clear, the president of the united states refused to denounce and reject same bigotry and hate and it starts from the top there are a lot of other people who are in support of roseanne saying she should not have been fired. saying her comments were not wrong. justifying her comments as if they were okay and we all know that they are not. ed: matt? >> yeah, i think this is so interesting. joy reid said hateful and terrible things, things about guys, things about jews in the state of israel. things about almost every group you can imagine. and it was 10 years ago, it was before she was a
national political or at least media figure. and i think it's okay to say look, this happened. she apologizes. don't you love it what they do with donald trump, anto ant jps juan. you try to equate him with being a racist. try to equate him with being a white supremacist. >> no, no. >> it's not going to work. >> matt, matt, matt, that's not what i'm saying. i said he refused to reject bigotry and hate. >> that's wrong. look at his policies. lowest unemployment rate for african-americans. >> matt, what does that have to do with anything? if we wanted to go into digging the past. remember this president and your vice president had some things in their past that i don't think the american people would agree with now if you want to talk about racism, bigotry and hate. >> anton. ed: let's talk about today. anton you had a chance to talk. let matt talk. >> this is the problem when we talk about.
>> we are not talking about policy, matt. >> let me talk. i think it's important to know what matters about donald trump's heart is the policies he is implementing. the lowest african-american unemployment rate in our history. >> thank you, barack obama. >> unemployment rate for hispanics in our history. the fact that nobody calls them anti-semitic because they realize policies towards jews are historic. ed: antjuan last point. >> look at the policies. >> mexicans, rapists and thugs and him attacking prominent african-american leaders. if you want to talk about policies, talk about rhetoric. this discussion is about rhetoric between the two tv hosts. >> kanye west and candace owens. bring it on. >> oh my god, man. ed: matt, anton. >> bless your heart, matt.

>> not only absolutely great number. this is one of the best monthly numbers i have ever seen for black people, ever. the unemployment rate for black people went from 6.6 to 5.9%. absolutely the lowest ever. but, here's the kicker. labor participation, 76,000 blacks came into the labor mark. every other race saw people leave the labor mark. absolutely unbelievable stuff. pete: historic numbers coming in yesterday. here to react candace owens turning point u.s.a. you continue to hit the trail to amazing crowds which i see online. well done. >> thank you. pete: what do you make of numbers historically low
overall but for blacks. >> wonderful news. cannot be overstated what this president has done for the black community. hope is inspiring and economic growth he has inspired within this country. i have heard antjuan say in the last segment thank you obama. that's a delusional comment. either he doesn't understand economic policy or he doesn't want to. but this is directly correlated to the work he has done to shrink government and to slash regulations and i'm just so proud and it's a great time to be a black american. i will tell you that much. abby: what more needs to be done. >> he needs to continue down the same path he is on. best thing we can do is get the message out there to the black community. when you see that that's why when i getdown set when someone like antjuan says thank you, obama. and pretends this is not something that the president has done. pete: racist and racist policy how do you bridge that. >> destroy the left's rhetoric. they use fear politicking to strap black people into this helplessness and to more food stamps. they say that's a plus. right? but black unemployment,
that's a low. then when they acknowledge it's a positive, they say that's because of obama because they think that black individuals aren't smart enough to understand economic policy. abby: i don't know if you have seen. pete: powerful. abby: some of our teases on the show we wanted to ask you particularly about this. students were asked who they would rather gang an -- this is not a joke, an ms-13 gang member or trump supporter. watch how this played out. >> oh, gang member. >> give me the gang member. >> i'm going to go ms-13. >> yeah. probably ms-13 member. >> neither. i will stay single. >> i guess a trump supporter because i guess at least they stand for something. >> why an ms-13 member. >> i lived in bolivia i understand a little bit of the culture. >> a lot of trump supporters were probably raised by rich white dads and have lots of money and bread into being trump supporters. >> one trump supporter they would date because at least he stands for something. >> i'm not surprised
whatsoever. like you said, it's not a joke. we con front this all the time on college campuses. there is a departure from reality that is going on. abby: do they know what an ms-13 is. >> they do know. they know these individuals rape. they know these individuals kill. we saw they defended these individuals against being called animals but they are very happy when trump supporters are called racists and sexist and a bunch of different names. and this is directly leans to the left rhetoric and the left which perpetuate this. there is massive brainwashing they are trying to do and reinforcing. we see this all the time. abby: roseanne bar last week yeah there may be a double standard. the hate speech is across the board and a problem we have right now and as a country got to figure out how to stop all the hate. >> that's what we are trying to do. go on college campuses and say look i support donald trump. do you really believe i'm a racist and i'm a sexist i'm a misogynist? i'm telling my story. we try to normalize the conversation and say you don't have to support donald
trump. can you be a little more realistic in terms of the people that do? pete: you are a trump supporter. can we confirm on that last segment were you raised by a rich white man. >> irs not raised by a rich white man. pete: i wanted to check. chris matthews says you have to play golf and read the "wall street journal." >> i don't play golf. i do read the "wall street journal." there might be something there if you want to take me down that path. abby: totally wrong. pete: candace, thank you. >> thank you, guys. abby: two suspects are charged with murdering a tennessee deputy now could face the death penalty. steven wiggins and erika castro miles are accused of killing officer baker after a 48 hour manhunt wiggins was captured by highway patrol trooper. using baker's handcuffs to arrest wiggins. 10 year veteran of the force found shot dead in patrol car after responding to 911 call about a suspicious vehicle. also, this parents facing prison time for giving
thirteen marijuana to treat his alleged seizures. georgia police arresting susanna and matthew brill for reckless tip smoking weed. his parents said kept him seizure free for knee nearly three months. here is what they say. >> nothing else was working. i can't have my kid dying because nobody wants to listen. i wasn't abusing my son. i was taking care of my son. abby: the parents no longer have custody of their son. marijuana is illegal in georgia it is legal to treat seizures with cannabis oil. >> finally leaving his parent's home if you can believe it not before calling the cops on his dad on missing legos. mike co-rotan dough says he believed his 8-year-old son's toys were in the basement. his father would not allow him to look for them. legos were found after police arrived. taken to court after asking him to move out five different times. he plans to eventually move in with a cousin. the story gets better and
better. pete: my legos? you didn't let me get my legos? pete: it's like a character of himself. becoming a thing of a thing. rick, i know you collect legos. rick: moving in with a cousin? man, that guy has got it made. i'm just going to follow him around and live for free wherever he goes. all right, guys. talk a little bit of weather. yesterday was the official start to hurricane season this year. we already obviously had our first tropical storm last year. subtropical storm last week i should say. caused all kinds of flooding. take a look at the maps though. show you what we are talking about. this is our average tropical activity. it peaks around september 10th. most of the action in hurricane seasonal is from august 1st to october 20th. so we have a ways to go. however, most of our predictions for this year are becoming, moving towards kind of average, maybe a little bit below average activity. that is because you see that water there off the coast africa is below average temperatures. when it's below average temperatures. one of the things we look at
might make things a little bit quieter this year. certainly would be good news. all the heat is down across the southeast. it's a really humid day across much of the east. because of that we will see pop-up thunderstorms. and watch this storms moving through the central part of the country. potentially severe later on in the day. all right. guys, back the to you inside. pete: jump in one of those rvs with you later on in the show for sure. president trump's summit with north korea on june 12th now back on officially. a deal it's going to take some time. what challenges will the u.s. face when negotiating. we're going to ask a former state department foreign service officer next. ed: plus, geraldo rivera, dr. sebastian gorka and congressman congressman duncan hunter they are all here live coming up. ♪ -♪ he's got legs of lumber and arms of steel ♪

i never says it goes in one meeting. i think it's going to be a process. but the relationships are building and that's a very positive thing. pete: so, as it pertains to this, what are the challenges the u.s. feyess when negotiating taking the nukes off the korean peninsula? let's ask former state department foreign service officer and senior contributor bart. thank you very much for being here this morning. we appreciate your time. >> thank you, pete. pete: brass tax, wha tacks whats to happen here. >> ultimate what denuclearization means. we had a lot of back and forth about this. ambassador bolton went on tv and talked about the libya model. and the russian media took that and blew it up. the north koreans took and it freaked out over it because, when they heard libya model. they thought well, qaddafi got killed. but what bolton was talking about was what pompeo called complete and irreversible
denuclearization. you give up the weapons, the bombs, the missiles, the rockets, components, fissile material. pete: that is kim jong un's security blanket. without his nukes, without his missiles, he doesn't have a deterrence to the west. is that true and can we get to that complete taking away of nukes? >> yeah. i think we can. and i think that premise is false. and i think that kim is just now starting to realize he has fallen into what i call the nuclear trap. he thought, let me develop some nuclear weapons and some delivery systems. and then can i hold the west hostage. and president trump undercut that with a single tweet saying i have a bigger button. mine is bigger and mine works. what he is saying -- neither is russia. you are on your own and your six or 10 or 20 weapons are nothing compared to our arsenal. if you even think about it, you will be killed.
and that is what has brought kim jong un to the negotiating table is fear of death. pete: the fire and fury. the true belief that america would do what it needs to do to defend itself and get rid of them in the process. how important are sanctions here, keeping them on or ratcheting them up, even, throughout the process? >> absolutely critical. that's another thing that -- i mean, our biggest weapon in all of this is presidential resolve. knowing that president trump will do what he says he will do. and he proved it with the sanctions. everybody else has always said oh, you can't confront china when we're worried about north korea. we have other interests with china and we have to make sure they are happy so they will work with us on north korea. president trump said no, this is america first. and he confronted china over sanctions breaking. he con fronted north korea. he confronted everybody. and suddenly, for the first time, sanctions really took a bite and they were harming the koreans. pete: you talk about america first. looking at it through that lens.
briefly, what's the biggest take away you are looking for if and when the summit happens on june 12th? >> as president trump said you can't expect denuclearization with a single meeting. i think what you have to look for is north korean internal propaganda, starting to sell the idea to their people that denuclearization is good. if you see organized parades and demonstrations and editorials in the state media, praising denuclearization, then you feel like, yes,. pete: interesting. >> we are making progress. have to pump the message into the populist that's been brain washed so long. >> absolutely. pete: thank you. >> it was a pleasure. thank you for having me. pete: our pleasure as well. former cia director john brennan furthering his attacks on president trump. >> i think mr. trump has demonstrated a paranoia and security real concern about the investigation underway. pete: he says he is not going to stop. plus, facebook ditching its
conservatives. here to break it down is kurt the cyberguy. >> can you just -- let's go back in history because history tell us a lot. do you remember me sitting here 2015, 2016 and i keep on saying that facebook is saying they are not a media company. and zurich saying we are not a media company. we don't influence opinion. we don't influence the news. cut to today. they are finally, this is finally, i think, a win for truth in reporting. that facebook is saying fine, we're a media company, we're responsible. and we're just gone that -- you won. so he they're getting rid of this trending topics thing. abby: they are not going to admit that. >> we know better. we know better. we know a whistleblower inside of facebook at the time where they had human cureiating trending topics. friends send you things from this because it's what populated news across the social network that they said wasn't a media company. cut to your friends would be sending you ridiculous topics and you are like this is really kind of leaning to the left. and at the same time, you
would accuse facebook of saying that and they say oh, no, no. no, no, no. no. whistleblower comes out and says oh, are you kidding? that's how it is. they then install an algorithm that says we got rid of the human error there and algorithm was a nightmare in and of itself. where we are going next is pretty good. it's a win for big media companies like fox news. like our competitors at cnn. because they are now going to have a much stronger, bigger participation and voice inside of the idea of what news is on the facebook platform. so,. abby: they can also put the blame on somebody else. that was a different media outlet. >> abby is thinking ahead. is he washing his hands of it again saying oh, well that was fox news -- oh, that was cnn. so, really smart move on facebook's part but, again, i think what you see when w. all the commercials -- you can't turn on the tv right now without seeing facebook commercials saying oopsy,
but you will trust us again. watch what we are doing. i think this is a giant campaign to regain credibility with the world population. pete: how do we know who they are choosing? cnn, "new york times," and "newsweek" and "time" i know i'm getting four left wing sources. can you still get by us you could but we still got to keep our eye on it quite frankly so at night shep smith will be anchor ago digital version of fox news on the facebook platform. abigail, dew points to talk about it? abby: are doing stuff too. >> in some way or another. this is a really good moment for journalism in and of itself because they are opening that up to have the media companies now. pete: in abby i trust. abby: thank you, kurt. really interesting. pete: justin from canada otherwise known as justin trudeau taking aim at tariffs. calling them insulting to
canadian veterans. seriously? abby: remember this heart warming moment? 8-year-old boy with muscular discovery talking to the president as he signs the right to try bill. is he here to share his amazing story. you don't want to miss that coming up ♪ i'll be there ♪ so i kept on fighting. i found something that worked. and keeps on working. now? they see me. see me. see if cosentyx could make a difference for you- cosentyx is proven to help people with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis... ...find clear skin that can last. don't use if you're allergic to cosentyx. before starting cosentyx, you should be checked for tuberculosis. an increased risk of infections and lowered ability to fight them may occur. tell your doctor if you have an infection or symptoms. or if you have received a vaccine or plan to. if you have inflammatory bowel disease, tell your doctor if symptoms develop or worsen. serious allergic reactions may occur. never give up.

>> you people will have to travel because you will be in singapore on june 12th. abby: summit in singapore on june 12th. pete: so much winning going on a huge jobs report for this country. look at the headline for the "new york times" we ran out of words to describe how good the jobs numbers are. >> it was great news. the media just wanted to distracted divert attention. >> trump. >> two guys from queens. that would be interesting. new yorkers know how to talk to new yorkers. >> he, along with every other democrat who has ever held elective office in 2020. so little oxygen in the
room. >> john brennan furthering his attacks on president trump. >> mr. president trump has demonstrated a paranoia, insecurity. >> no single figure in american history has done more to discredit the intelligence community than this liar. is he a liar about being a liar. >> i'm thrilled to be here with the brave men and women of the united states coast guard. these are exciting times for america. we are being respected. it's about time. ♪ nothing standing in my way ♪ on this perfect day ♪ where nothing can go wrong abby: i don't know about you. but i come from the wild west of utah. and camp something a huge thing out there. pete: wild west abby. abby: this is what it is all about, the summertime being with your family. you know, steve. pete: ton of fun. june is national camping month. i went camping in a tent for three days, we tubed down the river.
we didn't shower. we didn't change clothes. we were super smelly. pete. ed: you could have left that out. pete: normal day you have to sit next to me. plaza talk about it. ed: i was about to say it's funny you have a shot of me. if you go camping with your family you are the one who sweeps up and whatnot. everyone has a job. remember how you tried to show us how to use a broom? you had clearly never used one? pete: have you ever been camping? ed: no. abby: have you never been camping before? ed: i come from long island. abby: we should do a "fox & friends weekend" road trip. pete: in an rv. abby: how would you survive you? would have pete by your side. pete could help you. ed: survivor "fox & friends weekend." abby: oh my gosh. what do you think? should we take a camping trip? email@example.com. good morning to all of you. happy saturday morning. we have a lot of news to get. to say starting with a fox news alert. historic north korean
summit, it is back on. ed: top official from the country hand delivering a letter in a very large envelope from kim jong un to the white house to seal the deal. correct? pete: depiction. rich edson is in washington with the latest. >> good morning, they met for more than an hour in the oval office. president and north korean vice chairman. when they emerged, president trump announced officially that his meeting with kim jong un june 12th in singapore as originally planned. vice chairman kim young chol is the first official in north korea in the white house in 18 years. he originally flew to new york to meet secretary of state mike pompeo. kim brought with him a letter from kim jong un to president trump and instructions to deliver it ultimately, his ticket to the white house. >> it was a very interesting letter. and at some point i may be -- it may be appropriate. i will be able to give to you, maybe. you will be able to see it really, this was a letter presentation that ended up being a two-hour conversation. >> the president says the
u.s. is suspending additional sanctions against north korea pends the outcome of this summit. officials say the u.s. is still applying previously implemented sanctions against north korea. the president says the two did not discuss human rights yesterday. though noted the june 12th summit will likely start a long process of negotiations. back to you. abby: all right. rich edson live for us. as of now, things seem to change every day. the summit is still going on. you will be in singapore june 129. the president is setting the expectations right. saying this is just the first of what we hope to be many, many meetings together. this is talk of ending potentially a 70-year war. ed: democrats saying is he not going to get this done on june 4th. if you move the ball forward, a lot farther forward than barack obama ever did, for example, or any republican or democratic president. abby: i think we are already there we are already much further along. pete: of course, ed gets to
go to singapore. ed: i haven't been camping but i have been to singapore. pete: resistance as you know continues here and former cia director john brennan continues to audition as captain for the resistance. he gave an interview talking about president trump, talking about paranoia and insecurity. listen to john brennan. >> i think mr. trump has demonstrated a paranoia, an insecurity. as well as a real concern about the investigation that is underway. certainly his tweets do not seem like they are coming from a person of innocence and confidence. mr. trump is going to promote his narrative. he certainly is going to continue to try to discredit the fbi and the cia and others. but, i think make no mistake about it, the american justice system, i think, is going to prevail in this endid he ever to get to the bottom of who might have been collaborating and working with foreign actors to try to undermine the integrity of the elections.
ed: i saw that interview and the number of times he said mr. trump, deliberately not calling him the president. not accepting he is the president is ridiculous. number one. number two, to repeatedly attack the president of the united states to say is he politicizing the intelligence commu and all of, this when, in fact, as the former cia director, you are supposed to be nonpartisan, he clearly was a political actor here in terms of how he handled the dossier and other things and just what he is saying now. and you haven't seen this from cia directors in any administration. democrat or republican. he is out there partisan attacks on the president left and right. abby: can you expect to keep hearing from him. he says until integrity is brought back to the white house. is he going to keep speaking outs. >> great point. i saw a lot recently about the morale at the cia and fbi. you think beyond just the folks at the top. some of the bad apples that we have seen. have you thousands and thousands of employees that are there for the right reasons. trying to fight and do the job for the country. you wonder how they are
feeling whether you have folks like john brennan who used to run the cia who are so political and opinionate opinionated. ed: james comey at the fbi and andy mccabe. it's not just the cia it's the fbi. rank and file at the top. pete: disspirited by trump attacks. you are disspirited by leaders politicizing those departments. you want straight shooters at the top. general brennan better be right. he in the middle of all of this. there is more to come out. what he says now will be used against him in or outside the court of law. he seems to think he is the arbiter of truth. we will find out because the truth usually exposes itself. former attorney general michael mukasey had some interesting comments. he knows about these realms. he had some comments on john brennan. listen. >> maybe should told to stick to his day job. the trouble is, i think given what we're finding out about the way he did his day job. including his participation and putting informant into the trump campaign, maybe we're better off with him as
kind of an amateur pundit. i think he may be projecting his own views, if i may be an amateur psychiatrist for the moment, on to the president. because he is going to have a lot to answer for. i believe when the entire story gets told about what the cia was doing in connection with the running of the investigation and what it was doing with regard to what had been its informant. pete: i like it with michael mukasey says what i said even though i didn't know he was going to say it. he is going to have a lot to answer for if is he wrong. abby: that's exactly right. what he also said he is putting his own personal political beliefs on all of this. that's a dangerous place to be especially when you are a role. >> interesting another bigster this week is the president again trying to negotiate better trade deals. fairer trade for america. something he talked about in the campaign again and again. he instituted these new tariffs for steel and aluminum even against allies not just battling china. also taking on canada. taking on various european
allies as well as mexico. and justin trudeau, the prime minister very closely aligned with barack obama has been attacking this president on climate change and other issues. look, he is standing up for his country the way president trump is standing up for our country and can you understand that on one manned. on the other hand, he tapes this interview for this week's meet the press on ntsb. he seems to go a lot further and takes this into a very nasty. pete: one issue to take issue trade tariffs battle. another thing to say it's about the troops. listen. >> our soldiers, who had fought and died together on the beaches of world war ii. on the mountains of afghanistan. and have stood shoulder to shoulder in. so most difficult places in the world, that are always there for each other, somehow this is insulting to them. the idea that we are somehow a national security threat to the united states is quite frankly insulting and unacceptable.
pete: yeah. abby: pulls at the heart strings. that's what he is trying to do remind his people that we have all worked together so closely. and what the president has said from the beginning he has not been a fan of nafta. he says we continue to get the short end of the stick. this has been what i have been fighting for. this is why i wanted to become president. people shouldn't be surprised. he has been following through on some of these from the very beginning. pete: someone who has stood shoulder to shoulder literally with troops from canada many of which are wonderful. this type of back and forth on trade has nothing to do with an alliance that's been around for a long time. i'm grateful for a lot of service of canadian troops. unfortunately their government puts a lot of caveats on them and often can't be in combat the way they want to be which is a whole other issue. come on justin from canada, can you do better than that. abby: we will see where this ends though because macron says this is illegal. a lot of people unhappy. pete: wait, are there international police? it's not legal if we want to do it. that's my opinion. abby: we will see. a lot going on this morning. i want to bring you other headlines.
a man dies after pushing kids out of the way when a car barrels down a baseball field. >> oh my god. >> get off the field. that. >> sun real. witnesses say a woman drove her woman through a stadium gate that the man was trying to close. the 68-year-old died on the way to the hospital in maine. so sad. police arresting and charging the driver carol, seen right here with manslaughter. the motive is still under investigation. also this: defense secretary james mattis slamming china for militarizing artificial islands in the south china sea. listen. >> despite china's claim to the contrary, the placement of these weapon systems is tied directly to military use for uses of intimidation and coercion. it calls into question china's broader goals. abby: mattis warning of much larger consequences if the country ignores. making those remarks overnight at international
security forum in singapore. also, listen to this story, annual uber driver accused of shooting and killing a passenger now under arrest. officials holding the driver michael hancock on suspicion of first degree murder. you can see him right there. a witness telling police that the driver said the victim tried to attack him before he killed the passenger. the suspect was handcuffed at the scene in denver. uber says, quote: our thoughts are with the families of those involved. and we will continual working closely with police. and president trump praising america's first line of defense as the coast guard welcome as new commander. >> america is safe because our coast guard is strong. these are exciting times for america. we are being respected again. we're being respected abroad. abby: admiral karl schultz relieving. schultz was commander for all u.s. coast guard missions from the rocky mountains to the caribbean
coast. ed: trump economy surging with the unemployment rate hitting 18 year low. the media seems to be melting down over a controversial tweet. >> why would the president tell all of america to look at the jobs numbers if the jobs numbers were not good. >> insider trading can you get the cheat sheet directly from the president. ed: let's ask the chair of the economic advisors kevin hasset is live from the white house next. pete: tell me more john king. do you roseanne without roseanne? abc might try. we're going to bring you an update ahead. ♪ paying too much for insurance you don't even understand? well, esurance makes it simple and affordable. in fact, drivers who switched from geico to esurance saved an average of $412. that's auto and home insurance for the modern world. esurance, an allstate company. click or call.
ed: the may jobs ropes revealing 223,000 jobs added last month. unemployment rate 18-year low. for some in the media, president trump's tweet saying he was looking forward to the report was much bigger news. >> a lot of people scratching their heads about why the president decided to tweet about it beforehand. why would the president tell all of america to look at the jobs numbers if the jobs numbers were not good? >> he was so eager to trumpet the news he broke years of presidential protocol. >> insider trading can you get the cheat sheet directly from the president. hardly the first time the president has broken the rules when it comes to sharing sensitive, sometimes even classified information. ed: joining us now live from the white house chair of the council of economic advisors kevin hassett. >> i don't want to completely let the president off the hook. do you get this information the night before. do you know there is a
protocol where you are not supposed to reveal this information and potentially move the market ahead of that 8:30 a.m. eastern release of the jobs numbers. on the other hand, it seems like there is an awful lot of people in the media who want to focus on that instead of the fact that there was good news here. >> right. and, nnkts, th in fact the newss astonishing. strongest labor market we have seen in many years. we have to go all the way back to 1970 to see sustained periods of unemployment this low and wage growth really picking up. i think there are a lot of people in the media that don't want to cover the good news of donald trump's economy. they are looking for something to say the president, let's look at what he says. he says i'm looking forward to seeing the data. of course is he looking forward to seeing the data. that's what you want in the commander-in-chief. you want someone looking forward to see it i get the point we don't want him tweeting before every release. oh, hey, guys, don't bother looking at the data tomorrow. stuff like that. of course that would be out of hand. that's not what happened. we also went back and looked at previous administrations. there are many episodes
where previous administrations actually did something way worse than what president trump did and nobody noticed. ed: interesting. speaking of tweets a few moments ago i saw the president tweet you had from camp david that the "new york times" actually had a headline saying we ran out of positive words. we ran out of amazing adjectives, basically, to explain how good this economy is that's a pretty good place for this president to be. >> let's put it in perspective. so if we go back all the way to 1970. there have been seven months where we have had the unemployment rate below 4. we just had two of them. that's how good the economy is think all the back back to 1970, there have been ups and downs and ronald reagan's economy. we are doing that for good reasons. president trump changed a bunch of failed policing. dereguladeregulating. ed: i'm glad you mentioned barack obama. this week we saw a quote from him basically saying i set things up for donald trump. and then basically this is an obama recovery and you are enjoying the fruits of it. >> you know, that's just
false. the fact is that the obama economy in the last two years was barrelly struggling along to grow around 2%. the obama economists like larry summers were telling us we had this thing called secular stagnation which was this new normal where we are going to have low growth forever. it wasn't president obama's policies. its what the fact that the martians have condemned us to grow slow forever. pretty much. president trump comes in and he changes the policies and, boom, we are growing at 3%. ed: none what the martians said. the atlanta feds said may have growth predicting as high as 4.7%. kevin hasset we appreciate you joining us. a 9-year-old boy with muscular dystrophy hugging the president as he signs the right-to-try bill. is he here to share his amazing personal story. there he is. good morning, buddy. we will see him next ♪ calling on angels ♪

referred. to say what point did you know that something was not right with jordan and how has his life been since? >> jordyn was almost 4 when he was diagnosed with duchenne fatal muscle wasting disease effects 1 in every 3500 boys. he is now nine and doing great. is he part of a clinical trial. we have been traveling to chicago once a week for 65 weeks. and he is doing amazing. abby: jordan, have you such a sweet smile. we have all seen that video of you with president trump on stage. and he gives you a hug. what did he say about your hair? do you remember? >> that it was very nice and if he had that hair 10 years before he was president, he would be president. abby: so sweet. >> talk about the right to try. what does that mean to you and specifically all have you been through? >> well, we're so excited.
we started out with right-to-try at the state level when jordan didn't qualify for a clinical trial that we knew there were treatments coming up through the pipeline that could slow the progression of his disease. so, you know, we started lobbying for that at the state level and we were there with then governor pence when it was signed into law. and now 40 states have passed right to try law to give terminally ill patients the right to try potentially life saving treatments before they are fully f.d.a. approved. so, fast forward a little. and jordan made it in to a clinical trial. we have stayed the course and continued to fight so that other patients would have access to these potentially life saving medications. abby: yeah. jordan, i want to remind people if they missed it. that moment that you shared with the president where he talked about how great your hair is. watch this.

vice president a joke. abby: let's hear it. >> how do you make a tissue dance? abby: i don't know. >> you put a boogie in it. [applause] abby: that is a good one. jordan, you are a funny man. laura, what about you? is there any last words you want to say to the president and vice president if they are watching? >> oh, gosh. i mean, thank you. >> it's not enough but there are just no other words. we are just so honored and grateful that they were so supportive of right-to-try and just helped us get this across the finish line. so we are very, very grateful for that. abby: we wish you and your family all the luck in the world. jordan, do you have amazing hair. it was so good to talk to you today. good luck as a firefighter. >> thank you. >> thank you. abby: all right. bye you guys. thanks for being with us. >> thank you. abby: what a cute kid. a california church says they are better off without police but is writing off

arguing maybe some reform should happen with what is going on. this leads to vigilantism. don't call us, depend on us as a church. what next you are going to the street like death wish? i don't see this going well and i think they have got to be very careful with their being zealous but probably in a wrong way. abby: how does this bring the community together? that's the problem. we are trying to bring folks together to trust police will yous about the other side of that is making sure the police are doing their jobs correctly. what does this do to the morale of the community? doesn't this just further spread them apart? >> well, history has shown that when people take this approach, then crime seems to usually increase. because word gets out, nobody around here is going to tell the cops what's going on. and sometimes that empowers those that want to do illegal actions to really go further than what they would ever go before.
pete: that's a great point. >> they have really got to think through this whole strategy and it concerns me. you know, in the bible in matthew 26, when peter went and said "i'm going to cut off the ear of this guard." very quickly jesus corrected him and said, "stop." you know, "don't do this." it challenges authorities to say hey, live a certain way with the power you have been given. nowhere does it say get out of our community we are going to do this ourselves. the church needs the police as often as i'm called on the police needs the church. pete: sure. >> this is not versus police and she is not the mouthpiece for the church. let me say that. pete: that's a great point. other churches have joined. this reached out for oakland police department. waiting for a response from them. part of the rationale this church put out. direct quote from a church online. no more state sponsored crucifixions in the name of safety. this pastor, this church is saying when a police officer
makes a call, they are crucifying people. that seems just outright sacrilegious. >> i don't know any clergy member and sometimes as clergy i wish we could police each other as clergy, hold each other accountable for our statements but some people get a mike, get attention, get a camera on them and say what they feel at that moment. but, i think they really need to think through this because this could be really dangerous for their community, dangerous for their congregation. sorkts they wilso, they will dee in my prayers. if we could reach them i would love to communicate with them hey, i could show you real life examples where this has gone really bad and you don't need to walk down that road. abby: pastor, you speak from experience. i love to have you here. you have your own past. you were a dug dealer. >> yes. abby: before you found religion and that completely changed your life. >> the streets are something i do know. wrote a book called "street
god." i don't want to relive that and don't want their community to relive that i was hip on the news, i would be like what? all right, guys, set up on this block, set up on that block. go over there. they are going to cover us and watch our back. nobody is going to call and then homicides increase, violence increase. then that person, that pastor who probably -- will probably be in because crying saying what did i kind of lead here instead of leading the right way. pete: sometimes we have segments we don't have the right guest. this time we had the absolute perfect guest for this topic. thank you for your time. >> thank you. love you all. absolutely. pete: president trump pardo pardoning filmmaker dinesh d'souza. could another name soon get added to his list. we are going to add the case of army officer clint lore low

geraldo almost 5% which barely feels like it would be real we were hoping for three those numbers look fantastic. geraldo: you know i stunned some people who looked at me yesterday when i said i thought yesterday was donald trump's best day as president. i really do believe that. first and foremost, it's the economy and when you see these results, they are undeniable. not only is there, you know, tremendous growth. it is also widespread. it is a rising tide and indeed, it is lifting all ships. when you look at minority unemployment, that is historic. i mean, when push comes to shove , people have to determine whether the democratic idea of liberalism or the republican idea of the private sector do its thing which will benefit the communities most in need, most effectively and when you see african unemployment at these record lows when you see latino unemployment at these record lows, when you see wages finally
ticking up, meaning that the boom is now becoming much more inclusive, i think these are undeniable successes and when you combine it with what happened with the north koreans yesterday, i just think that this is the president is on track. abby: we want to get to that but just to give people a bigger sense of what we saw come out yesterday in this report, this is retail. this is just in the past month. 31,000 healthcare, 29,000 construction is a big one for the president 25,000, manufacturing 18,000, and transportation 19,000. geraldo it's interesting because i talked to friends who a lot of them are democrats and they say actually the credit doesn't go to president trump. this goes back to barack obama and the policies that he put in place in his eight years in office. how do you explain why we are in this place right now? why things are going so well? geraldo: i certainly do not deny in any way the contributions of the obama administration to get out of the deep hole we were in
in 2008. i remember losing half my wealth in the various markets and it was such a stunning awful time, a pessamistic time in america's existence and then his policies and i don't take anything away from him, really started a recovery but there is no doubt that donald trump has been the principal cheerleader for this economy. it is remember if you ever took the old concord when they hit the afterburners and suddenly what was already moving pretty fast was accelerating? i think that's the american economy now and i think that the tax cuts clearly have helped even if you have minimal personal benefit, there is no doubt that that psychologically there is confidence in the economy now which means people are investing when they are investing they are creating jobs i think, and i don't want people to get mad at me, but -- abby: no one is ever mad at you geraldo. geraldo: today maybe, not yet but here we go. pete: [laughter]
geraldo: i believe that this economy, and i've heard from many many employers groups they're having difficulty finding employees. it's hard to find workers particularly in the agriculture sector. some of the light manufacturing jobs. generally speaking when there is a tremendous demand for labor there is less pressure on the immigration front than there usually is. ed: and yesterday nancy pelosi yesterday said these jobs number s aren't good enough and she last week when we moved to a different topic in north korea last week when president trump wrote that letter saying i'm pulling out of the summit, kim jong-un enough is enough and got tough with him, nancy pelosi said that the real winner was kim jong-un. well, a week later that doesn't appear to be true. geraldo: i think the former speaker is way out of line and it's like she's breathing helium or something. ed: [laughter] geraldo: i want to finish my other thought and then i'm going to go back to nancy pelosi and
kim jong-un and what happened with the north koreans. i think that the united states has to vastly liberalize immigration policy on a temporary basis to get seasonal workers in. pete: but wages go up. why would we do that when wages could go up for american citizens here to do jobs they're underpaid for. geraldo: you have to do both, pete. you have to look at it as this is not a zero sum game. wages go up for skilled workers. skilled workers no longer want to work in unskilled positions. whose going to pick the avocados , whose going to babysit , whose going to mow the lawn and wish the dishes in the restaurant, i think there should be liberal legal immigration rather than campaigning on a seasonal passes. going to be north korea if i may , so this, you know, i am old enough so the korean war has been on for my entire life. when president trump said
yesterday, do you believe we're talking about the end of the korean war, that was a thrilling moment to me. that was unbelievable that he could really pull this off, with all the any saying and all the abrupt letter withdrawing from the negotiations eight days ago and suddenly the negotiations are back on and kim sent him i don't know what was it a valentine's card i'm not sure what that big envelope contained but this is spectacular. this is historic. this is with jimmy carter at camp david in the 70s ending the conflict between egypt and israel. this is gigantic. abby: and is he smart to set the expectations to say that this is the first meeting this is not going to be the end of it all? it's not like we'll have the unification of korea and denuclearization all at once, because he knows that the reaction from the media if it is not complete success out of the singapore meeting then people are talking about the failure. geraldo: very wise abbey i absolutely agree with your analysis and i think what
happened yesterday if you noticed it was subtle but aside from the historic couching of the event, he also lowered expectations. he also the secondary headline was, june 12 will be the beginning of something, not the end of something, he used the word "process" time and time again, very measured. i think that his negotiating tactics and strategies so far has been brilliant and i just think that we're on a good place right now and i just wish that some of these voices, and that's why that samantha bee and the roseanne barr and all those controversies are such a distraction. pete: it is. geraldo: if we could all be pulling together. abby: we're all americans. geraldo: let's go camping. pete: let's have a national camp ing trip. abby: geraldo good to see you though. a lot going on this morning other headlines we're following let me bring you those. a man dies after pushing kids out of the way an unbelievable

trying to destroy america. this man has a track record which clearly is unpatriotic and unamerican. ed: doctor maybe i'm naive but i thought cia directors of either party whether it was somebody nominated by president bush or somebody nominated by president carter that they were supposed to be non-partisan. >> well, it's funny you should say that, ed. on his twitter feed it actually says under his bio, non-partisan , or neutral individual. this guys a political hack and as shakespeare said, the protests too much, he is making so much noise because he knows that he's at the center of spygate. remember that australian ambassador, you remember how it all began, how they sent operatives overseas to talk to him? that only happens with john brennan's approval, so the whole dossier leads back to john brennan and that's why he's being so loud now. ed: when you say protests too much you think that john brennan
has become sort of unhinged because he's worried this investigation is turning on him? >> absolutely. we now know that this was an inter-agency operation. it included the cia, the fbi, clapper is trying to cover but he's perjuring himself as well but at the center of all of this is john brennan and that's why he's being so loud now and john brennan doesn't launch a political attack using the intelligence community against donald trump without president obama's approval, so this is why the man is unhinged ed. abby: quickly what about the morale and decent it to ed's point he was non-partisan or still claims to be you've got 35,000 or more working at the fbi, thousands working at the cia, they don't ask which president they serve, they just serve the country. what does this do when you have people that led these places now speaking out so politically basically putting their political opinions their personal opinions against the president. >> it does the same thing that james comey has done to the fbi.
one man manages to undermine the pretige of tens of thousands of others. don't forget not only was this man a former communist john brennan when he came into the cia he never should have been let in with that track record. he wanted to be an operator. he wants to be a case officer. he failed and became an analyst and so when obama made him the director of the cia he took his revenge and tried to make analysts run operations. it was a disaster and thank the good lord mike pompeo took over and has saved the cia and now he's doing an amazing job as secretary of state so he's damaged the pretige but we're getting it back. abby: brennan isn't going anywhere. ed: dr. gorka we appreciate you coming in. >> thanks, ed, abbey. abby: coming up president trump pardoned dinesh d'souza sparking new calls to review the case of army lieutenant convicted of a combat incident. ed: california congressman duncan hunter a combat vet is leading that charge. he tells us why the president should pardon him, next.

pete: president trump's pardon of conservative fill filmmaker dinesh d'souza sparking him t review the case of army first lieutenant clint norance sentenced to 19 years in prison on murder charges to something that happened in combat in 2012 in afghanistan. california congressman duncan hunter has been leading the charge to get first lieutenant l orance pardoned and joins us nows so thanks for being here and getting up early in san diego but i knew you would for a soldier, for someone you leave has wrongly been in prison for making a tough call in the haze of combat. tell us about farm army first
lieutenant and what happened. >> thanks, pete. it's pretty simple he replaced a platoon commander blown up by motorcycle improvised explosive device so two weeks later him and his guys are on patro and they see motorcycle guys, military-aged males like 20 year old guys coming at him on a motorcycle and he orders his platoon to shot and they shoot, kills two of them and he gets in another altercation on the same day kills another guy on a motorcycle. all these guys got traced back to having explosives around them and on them but the army prosecutors missed that part in court and clint got 20 years in jail for doing the right thing and here is what we've done. under the obama administration we gave more rights to the afghan bad guys than we gave our own military and hopefully that has changed under president trump, but what president trump needs to do is look at this case and realize that clint acted the way he was trained and it's combat, so don't treat them like they're policemen on the, you
know, streets of san diego. treat clint like he's in combat and even if these guys were bad guys, or were not bad guys, i don't care there either. you have a u.s. american personnel in combat, in theatre, taking fire, people getting killed we have to give them the benefit of the doubt that they made the right decision not second guess them from back here with lawyers in the pentagon. it's better that clint killed them than they killed him. pete: than they killed him. it's a great point. you've been there. i've been there. foreign land, foreign language, a lot of uncertainty, you've got to make a decision in a split second he's a platoon commander charged with the lives of americans. they already had a guy killed by someone on a motorcycle. they take, he makes a call right or otherwise turns out the guys were insurgents yet the army goes after him hiding evidence in this case as well, he has been in prison for five years he's got 14 more to go. what is the ongoing rationale
from the defense department to not relook at this case? >> i don't know what it is and how would you like to be the army or be parents of an 18-year-old right now and you're watching this going why would i let my kid join the army when the army lawyers, not the guys that are on the ground, you know , fighting every day, but the lawyers back here, might try to put my kid in jail if they make the wrong decision in their eyes while in combat. that's crazy, and that's where we are right now that's why trump needs to look at this and say hey, i stand behind men and women in combat in uniform. i don't stand behind the department of defense lawyers. pete: it's a great point easy to second guess from an air-conditioned office what a guy did in the dust in afghanistan. as you mentioned this president has pardoned people recently. here is a list of a few people president trump has pardoned, the submariner which was a great one, scooter libby, jack johnson , of course dinesh d'souza. do you know of any other combat
vets that have been pardoned under this administration? >> don't know of any. pete: and you sent a letter to the white house on this. do you have any knowledge whether clint's case is being looked at again? >> no i don't know whatsoever and you know, we sent letters on this and talked to president obama about it. i know shawn hannity has talked to trump. i've now written letters to trump and we've talked about it. the only chance that we have is the president sees this and acts on it. that's why we're doing this on fox. i know he watches this so hopefully he's watching and he pardons clint. pete: well you know he has the backs of the war fighter. you know that, you know his instincts are in the right place and that was the problem with the previous administration. they were second guessing. congressman duncan hunter out of california i call him the war fighters congressman. thanks for having these guys back. >> thanks, pete. pete: you got it. well, msnbc's joy reed apologiz ing again, as more controversial blog posts like this one surfaced. but is sorry enough? well we're going to discuss that

ed: she didn't take responsibility. abby: it seems like it's crumbled but here is what she said i believe it was yesterday. she said there are things that i deeply regret and embarrassed by things i would have said differently and issues where my position has changed today i'm sincerely apologizing again. pete: listen i think apologies are great if she's sincere, you take her at her word but the question becomes when is an apology enough and not enough and it feels like if a liberal or leftist says something then they can apologize but they keep their job and move on and they say well our positions have evolved things have changed but again no one is apologizing or, you know, -- ed: justifying. pete: what they're saying but when a conservative does that oftentimes its got to be canceled. abby: the biggest problem i have with this is just taking responsibility. her first response was, wait i didn't do this. ed: i might have been hacked and i want the fbi to investigate it so your tax dollars were spent to some degree, we don't know how far the investigation went, for the fbi to look into alleged
hacking of joy reid's blog. now based on what she's saying in in her apology now it wasn't hacked. it was well i've evolved i've said that before. pete: at one point she said i genuinely don't believe i wrote those hateful things, you know what you wrote unless you want to use the ambien defense and then last night on his show did a great job saying what is the penalty for perpetuating a hoax? like if you knew you weren't hacked yet you said you were hacked it's like yelling fire in a crowded theatre. you're to blame for all the costs that come from it, all the fall out that come from it. the apology would have to be not just for what was said but for what was perpetuated based on a falsehood as well because listen people right things in the past. they have different views. hers are particularly vile. abby: i do think that we can't get to a place where you're just immediately fired for saying something. you know, how do we move forward and how do we forgive people and how do we all learn from those mistakes and what people would lick to see more from joy reid is acknowledging these
things were written not blaming it on someone hacking her account, but also bettering yourself, right? realizing that you can be a better person maybe thins you did in the past, were horrific. pete: i don't really want to see more from joy reid, but if i have to she should be allowed to do it on another channel so free speech is one thing on msnbc, another thing on fox, a comedian saying harsh things probably on comedy central. abby: but what is too much? pete: who gets to decide that's the problem. abby: you know pulling the race card no one stands for that. ed: msnbc put out this statement some of the things written by joy on her old blog are obviously hateful and hurtful. joy has apologized publicly and said she's grown and evolved in the many years since and we know this to be true, so that last part, you know, people evolve and grow, sure that's true, but the beginning part about it, it's an old blog, so you know -- abby: and it was hacked. it was from msnbc. ed: old blog, small blog. pete: just from a long long time
ago. i think -- abby: putting john mccain's head on a virginia tech shooter? pete: terrible. listen msnbc gets to decide, they're her employer. abby: and you guys decide who you want to watch ultimately. so we've got other headlines starting with this one two suspects charged with murdering a tennessee deputy could now face the death penalty. steven wiggins is acused of killing deputy sargent daniel baker after a nearly 48 hour manhunt he was captured by a tennessee highway patrol trooper , authorities using baker 's handcuffs to arrest him the 10 year veteran of the force was found shot dead in his patrol car after responding to a 911 call about a suspicious vehicle. and also there's a new face on the national security council president trump naming rear admiral doug fierce as his new homeland security advisor. the coast guard official is replacing ousted tom bossart with the rank of deputy assistant to the president and

in on this an hour ahead of time and some traders probably did pounce on that and make a few bucks in the meantime, the fact of the matter is the employment report itself continues what has been a remarkable streak, pete, on the jobs front, that's already running dramatically above even year ago levels when this president was just starting and the first five months of 2017 he was averaging about 170,000 job gains a month, and so far this year, more like 220,000 a month. that's a blistering pace if it were to maintain itself we could be off to off the charts gdp numbers here, so it's pretty remarkable. abby: neil you remember where we were back in what, 2009 unemployment rate was at like 10%, you look at that unemployment rate there, 3.8, this is a great place to be. who do you think deserves the credit everyone loves to point fingers is it a mix of a lot of things or certain things the president put forward like the tax plan making a big difference here? neil: i think i always hear from
people the never trumper thing when i say let's give credit to everybody this is a 90 second month in a row of job gains that we've seen so this recovery that we began on barbara bush with the great recession and continues and in fact has picked up remarkable steam under donald trump i think they can both take a bow here but there's no denying certainly the pace improved dramatically here that owes itself in large part to the tax cuts particularly for companies sharing the bounty and the cutback in regulation. that has kept what was a tepid recovery and put juice into it. ed: neil he promised both of those things cutting taxes, cutting regulations and big check marks but he also promised fair trade and that involves tariffs that add an interesting dynamic because there were some of his own fellow republicans in congress saying this is actually going to hurt the economy. neil: well there is that fear that sometimes if all of this were to go and tariffs going into effect we want on steel and aluminum that could dramatically jack up the price on everything
