3:04 am
that today. also, there has been an investigation started by horizon, also by airport officials on how, exactly, this guy was able to get into the plane and get on the runway and take off undetected. guys, back to you. ed: remarkable story dan. abby: an investigation? yeah. how this could happen. think about the people who loved him and his family first of all there how did someone, an employee of an alaskan airlines get in this plane. he flew for 90 minutes like this. ed: that's incredible. this is not a small jet. a massive passenger jet. and the video on social media that people started shooting with their phones where they saw this plane flying low over their backyards, over their homes. can you hear them talking to their kids daddy, there is a plane. they think it's a small plane at first from the distance. wait, that's a jet. this is insane. abby: right near a navy base. my brother lives there. is he a navy pilot.
3:05 am
you can imagine, pete, it's common they see planes flying around and blue angels when it gets closer you realize this is not a military plane. pete: you don't see alaska airlines doing tricks. not to make light of it he took his life. it's a serious situation. reminds you how incredibly important airport security is. all these people that have post security access to planes there is a lot of them at a lot of airports. ed: you would think post 9/11 and post all the other threats we have had over the last decade or so that there would not be more checks. the idea that someone could just get in the cockpit and fly the plane, take it off. pete: you would think so, ed. enemy minneapolis where they have had smaller refugees fighting with isis. 97% failure rate. we don't have our arms around it unfortunately. ed: people on social media says i can't bring more than three ounces of toothpaste through tsa without getting
3:06 am
serious problems. somehow this guy can just get in the cockpit? obviously he had more access. i get it he took advantage of that access where i can't get my arms around how there were not more checks. i get that people have certain badges and certain levels of access. there needs to be other player layers. pete: you follow it and watch it enough that you build out appear opportunity. ed: friday night and take advantage of. pete: security guard is a buddy of yours. we don't know what happened. but a couple of things happen. abby: not just about his life. a plane is a missile, right? you get behind that cockpit and anything can happen. so halder today with mental illness or knowing all of your employees and what they are dealing with oftentimes behind closed doors tell as different story. i'm sure the company maybe they didn't know he had been struggling this past year. ed: for the u.s. military to scramble not just one but two f-15s they were quite concerned, basically about people all around the seattle area. this plane could have landed
3:07 am
anywhere. abby: send us your thoughts this morning. a lot going on in the home front as well. as we often hear from the president and the attorney general, the area that they do come together on because they are not always on the same page on everything is on immigration. doubling down on the border and against sanctuary cities. here was general jeff sessions yesterday in houston. >> whatever we would on immigration. whatever our views. all of us should agree on two goals. we need to end illegal immigration and to end illegal immigration crime. we cannot accept the fact that gangs like ms-13, the latin king, many of whose members entered the country unlawfully are terrorizing american communities from los angeles to boston. if we want to reduce violent crime, then we have to get serious about illegal immigrant crime. if we're going to get serious about illegal immigration, we can't tolerate sanctuary cities. ed: think about all the talk
3:08 am
on capitol hill. it's an election year. we're going to deal with daca. finally enforce the immigration law us. it's really the immigration on its own here because congress has done nothing. pete: yes, yes. talk about the contrast. the left has also been rhetorically dedicated, unfortunately many people talking about abolishing ice and keeping those borders open. and really denigrating the policies that this administration has tried to pursue around zero tolerance. ed: denigrating law enforcement agencies. pete: denigrating the credibility of law enforcement at the same time. this administration is continuing to raise that conversation, stay focused on sanctuary cities. when you look at the polling. people, you know, may have different views of immigration and illegal immigration. when it comes to criminals and sanctuary cities, there's a lot of support for ending that policy. abby: you mentioned what's going on in the hill and mid terms around the corner. you notice every time you read one of president trump's tweets endorsing a candidate. he talks about the border.
3:09 am
he talks about. pete: tough on crime. abby: every single candidate. ed, to your point. he needs more help there. if he wants to pass everything he has been campaigning on, you need people who are fighting on his behalf as well. you can imagine if it goes over to the democratic side how challenging. nothing is going to get done for the next two years. ed: one of the road blocks for the president's agenda nancy pelosi. chuck schumer in the senate. a question whether or not if democrats take back the house of representatives will she be speaker of the house. the president sort of wading in to that yesterday mischievously with this tweet. a message to democrats. he said please, do not distance yourselves from nancy pelosi. she is a wonderful person whose ideas and policies may be bad but who should definitely be given a fourth chance. she is trying very hard, and has every right to take down the democrat party if she has veered too far left. so here he is basically endorsing her. talking about endorsements.
3:10 am
abby: in his own way. ed: if they are going to take back the house, make her the speaker. pete: the gift that keeps on giving. danny o'connor, like many candidates said, i don't want nancy pelosi for spiker. he is one of a few candidates. but if you add up a list. it's over 50 now of democrats both incumbents and candidates who have said they would not vote for nancy pelosi for speaker if they were to retake the house of representatives. now, she has a lot of support amongst other establishment types, her caucus in california. she calls herself a massive legislator. i would call this group right here that's scrolling the new freedom caucus. freedom from nancy pelosi is what they want. ed: here is one of their problems. they don't have an obvious person to replace her. abby: she hasn't let them find an obvious person she hasn't been willing to step aside. ed: she is holding on to power. abby: when your party is not in control of the white
3:11 am
house, the speaker matters. when you are one of the leading voices in the opposition party in congress, it's not just about raising money. you are basically the voice of the party right now. you represent that base. it's clear from all these folks that have come out, they feel like she doesn't represent them. she doesn't represent their base in the party and around the country of how people are feeling right now. she is a bit disconnected. she has been in washington for how many decades now, ed. ed: interesting because maybe it's a smart strategy for the president to elevate her as we get closer and closer to the mid terms and make her issue front and center. what do you think about the president doing that? friends at foxnews.com. holy fire scorching more than 19,000 acres with 10% contained outside of los angeles. the man accused of starting that fire making several outbursts in court. gordon clark calling the judge a liar when he was reading his felony charges.

3:17 am
book as i mentioned i wrote in 2013 about imam no small fish sort of a name we never heard of as we hear often in these terror incidents and findings. this is a leading imam among the islamic establishment in america. he was the vice president of islamic center of north america. he has been a fundraiser for hundreds of mosques. the islamic relations. he has been on their board. so now he certainly has led authorities to find his son. his son was the ringleader. he has two daughters there. grand children. and he, on facebook and social media had been saying he lost his kids. and, yesterday, pete, when he was giving supposedly spontaneous press conference he basically, again, dug his heels in and said he had been looking for them. they were strung out. well, you know what, pete? they were strung out on his islamism. he may not have been a paris hilton tant but he has been for decades the gateway drug for radicalization. he is the tip of the iceberg
3:18 am
almost like an alcoholic i don't know how my kids got on cocaine and other drugs. well, he may not have been violent but at the end of the day he was the mentor for many radicals and has been and i have been screaming it for years, even on your show six, seven years ago i talked about him when he was going to speak at the dnc. and, yet now he is putting his hands up saying he doesn't know how his kids got radicalized. pete: doctor, this could have gone really the wrong direction. at some level this imam is saying i don't know where my sons or daughters are. that may or may not be true. he does still hold responsibility for the fact that if they are radicals who did seek to do violence, they learn that somewhere. >> absolutely. he was a character witness in '93 for the blind sheikh who committed the world trade center bombing in '93. he grav gave the first prayer to the congress who sponsored him a man doing 23 years for taking hundreds of thousands of dollars from qaddafi to try to kill the kings of
3:19 am
saudi arabia. i can give you an example in 1995 i saw him personally hold up the core ron an quart rn tquartquran. is he a separationist and he may not be al qaeda. he may not be isis. he is the tip of the iceberg of a conveyor belt of radicalization. pete, this is a defining moment for muslims. we need new leadership. we need reform. we need to own up to the gateway drug that are leading imams like this guy and still today, the islamic organizations are saying don't offend its family. it's a hard time for him. be compassionate. you know what? how about would he be compassionate for our kids being radicalized by imams like this guy. pete: wow, dr. zuhdi jasser great inanxiety. it's a scary reminder even in the bureau of brooklyn guys are still there still in mosques preaching this kind of hate. doctor, thank you for your time. we appreciate it.

3:26 am
that's not going to work. i don't understand how private corporation can kind of be on a freight train that they have no control over what direction or speed it's going their employees. the other side is we do have issues, then those issues should be recognized. i don't know if disrespecting the american flag is the way about going about it. i love the american flag. i fought to protect it. you know, i would go overseas and do violence on their behalf for their right to take a to me. i believe somebody has a right to burn the american flag. i think they are idiots. if they do it in front of me i will probably put them on the ground covered in their own blood. i would with no doubt go overseas and protect their right to do it. i realize there is a conflict there. don't do it in front of me. bad idea. i believe every way shape or form i would protect your idea. abby: what a contrast a week or two there when we saw the
3:27 am
bodies come back in boxes from north korea. what we saw with the nfl and the kneeling you mentioned the american flag and how many friends, i imagine, have you lost fighting for this great country. what does that flag mean to you? when you see it draped over a coffin. when you see it draped over coffins of men and women who have served this great country, what does that mean to you? >> it means everything. you know, it's not just -- you know, it might be difficult for me to understand from their perspective the struggles that the african-american community is going through, like come over to my side. come and look at that flag being folded slowly, carefully, deliberately and handed to a widow or handed to a mom or a dad who just lost their son in a war. i have seen that countless times. i have seen that flag fly over bases being overrun by isis and al qaeda. friends of mine like doing absolutely everything in their power to keep that flag flying. and, you know, to have the national anthem come on and
3:28 am
you use that as an opportunity to disrespect the flag while trying to promote some issues. it's the wrong time. you know, that is a conversation that should be hang. but not at the expense and not at the cost of insulting like one of the most important pieces of who we are as americans. pete: you are right. just the wrong time. i have to get your take. you are an army guy. mma guy. none of you was would mess with you. i didn't know you had any experience in space. we did see the vice president lay out their plans for a space force and a lot of people feel like the future of american dominance might include that sphere. apparently you want to volunteer to join the space force, tim? >> yeah. they are like hurt. we pretty much have to torture you for the next two years. we're not going to feed you, get no sleep. i'm like cool, i'm in. i'll volunteer. being a sniper is cool. being a green beret is
3:29 am
awesome. being a rangers is awesome being astronaut is awesome doing all of those things together you can't wish for anything cooler. and this is -- it's not an accident. if you look at trump's national strategic strategy to national defense strategy all the way down to the joint chiefs of staff national military strategy. it is part, you know, controlling information, controlling satellites, controlling who can put out propaganda, intelligence. this is truly america first. and it's no surprise to me that we're going to be owning everything in space and if the military is in space, we're going to own it that's the way it's going to be. abby: especially if you are involved. pete: consider yourself volunteered. >> guys, i can't even believe it. pete: be a founding member. they would be lucky to have you too. abby: thank you for your service. what a guy. pete: i love it. abby: coming up on the show to a fox news alert now.

from getting away from the gate to taking off to security protocols. walk us through it? >> it depends or the aircraft was. if the aircraft was at a passenger gate, at a departure gate. someone would have had to push that plane back it doesn't back up on its own. it would have been a crew member to do it. some kind of authorization or coordination with somebody on the ground to do that. if the plane was out near a taxiway, maybe just standing by for maintenance or going into a maintenance bay, then, if you know how to start an engine like that and, again, that takes some training, so he would have had to have some training, then taking off on a runway is not impossible. it's something that a flight student could do after a while. abby: certainly a wake-up call around the country that this could happen. he is a 29-year-old man. as we are hearing he is not a technician but maybe a higher up, at least high enough to have certain access to things. what should people be aware

new boss making history as the first woman to take the job. >> you know, i realize it is significant. i'm the 18th chief and the first female but it's interesting because throughout my career, i never looked at myself as a female border patrol agent, just a border patrol agent. ♪ ♪ abby: good saturday morning. we begin here with a fox news alert. terrifying moments as a stolen plane flies aim mustily in the air before crashing. pete: alaska airlines employee stealing the aircraft from seattle tacoma international airport. ed: that's where our own dan springer is life with what we know at this hour. dan, certainly a lot of questions this morning. >> yeah. investigators will eventually get to those questions when they get up this morning. it's real early out here. jewels a stunning joy ride gone terribly wrong is exactly how it was described by the local sheriff.
4:02 am
clearly it was also a bizarre suicide, which happened last night at 8:00. when an airline employee stole a 76 seat passenger aircraft and flew it around the pe piewjt sound. the video is absolutely stunning and amazing when you look at it. shows the q-400 turbo prop doing loops and flying low to the ground. the military quickly sent up two f-15 fighter jets to follow that plane. those planes came out of portland and up here in minutes. the man who stole the plane worked for horizon air as a ground service agent. definitely not a pilot. he joked with the air traffic control agents about his flying skills even though he was not a pilot, clearly. he also made it clear he was suicidal. >> i don't want to hurt no one. i just want you to whisper sweet nothings into my ear. i have a lot of people that
4:03 am
care about me. and it's going to disappoint them to hear that i can this. >> air traffic control tried to get the man to land the plane in a variety of places first at a nearby air base and then over water. the fighter jet did not shoot the plane down as it flew south of seattle and towards tacoma and south of tacoma. an hour and a half after the plane took off, it crashed on a small island. pierce county officials say this was definitely not an act of terrorism. >> there is no indication that he did this to threaten anybody. there is no indication of any kind of terrorist link or anything like that. >> the crash happened on tetron island. very small. population 20. handful of houses. the plane went down in a wooded area and started a small wildfire. that was quickly out. no one on the ground was hurt. we are told the man who stole the plane was killed. the man's name has not been
4:04 am
released. but you mentioned the investigation. it will certainly start this morning. they will look into exactly how he was able to get into plane and take off. he had no formal pilot skills that we know of. he was a ground transportation employee. he was the guy that de-ices the planes in the winter. he will also direct the planes with those orange cones and bring them in to the gate and take the planes out to the runway and things like that. so how was he able to fly that plane? how was he able to get it undetected? we do know that plane was in for some maintenance. it was not supposed to be flown that day or last night. so, exactly how he got that plane and how he was able to get off the ground with it will be part of the investigation. ed: dan springer some terrific reporting in the middle of the night for us. appreciate it, dan. pete: thanks, dan. ed: that answers a little bit of the question one of our experts had last hour whether the plane was at a gate. dan is reporting it the was not at passenger gate it was in maintenance area being worked on. significant because a pilot
4:05 am
aviation expert was saying if it was at a passenger gate you would need more people involved to actually -- if he was in the cockpit getting ready to fly you need other people to push it back from the gate. that's not what happened. it was in a maintenance area. abby: begs the question how do you monitor all of your employees and make sure they are mentally well that something like this doesn't happen again. that's a question we asked sal la gotten i can't. here is what he said. he had credentials. let ability to get out on the ramp and be among the airplanes. so it's hard to say that we are going to stop somebody like that from doing anything unless we figure that he may have some nefarious thoughts. remember, how many people go around and service an airplane before it's ready for departure. 12, 15, 18 people, depending on the eyes of the aircraft. can you keep traffic of all of those people all the
4:06 am
time? ed: that last point makes you wonder how it's not happened before. all the airports, chicago o'hare and jfk with employees going in and out. thank god it hasn't happened before it's remarkable because he could have done much damage all the fuel in that plane. he was driving over some of these videos showing from social media. i was listening to them earlier. the audio, families, kids at first oh wow, dad, look. they were horrified because they thought this plane was going to crash and kill their families. if this plane had crashed somewhere not on that remote island but actually in a neighborhood, this would be a much -- pete: i poo pooed this story at first when i saw it. i didn't realize what a large plane it was coming out a major airport. as we saw on 9/11 planes can be missiles. if he decided to turn it towards seattle, if it had happened in this area, that's a real threat and not every airport worker at every airport has been screened probably the way they should for their background. clearly you can do side pilot training without people knowing it. this guy knew how to take
4:07 am
off a plane and fly it i wouldn't know where to start. even if he was a maintenance guy he knew something. abby: we cannot highlight enough how lucky it was. right near a navy base. they are used to seeing planes above them and doing crazy things and flips and tricks. and to your point, ed, when your kid is on the ground and it gets close you realize this is not a normal navy plane. ed: fuel there, it causes a big fire and who knows what happens. thank god none of that happened. abby: thinking about family and friends, everyone who knew him it's a sad story. pete: it is a sad story. abby: we will keep an eye on it. pete: something that makes me happy every august is football is coming pack. i'm a fugitive fan. i love it preseason started on thursday. a lot of us hope in the offseason they get this kneeling thing figured out. they had a new policy and everyone walked away from the policy. what will players do kneeled last year and thinking about kneeling this year. unfortunately we saw a
4:08 am
handful of players take a knee or raise a fist in that first weekend. the president tweeting as you would expect about that. the second part of two tweets read this way. he said be happy, be cool. a football game that pays -- that fans are paying so much money to watch and enjoy is no place to protest. most of that money goes to the players anyway. find another way to protest. stand proudly for your national anthem or be suspended without pay. his point is enjoy the game, we love the game. keep the game where it is. don't mix your protest with something so many people revere in the national anthem. pete: nfl policy supposed to be in place and rejected and part of the reason why we are at this place again is hey, if you want to protest, yeah, have you that opportunity, stay in the locker room, do it that way. don't do it on the field when we are honoring the flag. when we are honoring america. and we had sergeant tim kennedy, an mma fighter, an iraq war veteran on. he said, look, i fought for this flag. i saw some of my friends die for the american flag. for this country. you have the right to
4:09 am
protest. but if he saw that kind of protest happening, here's what he said he would do. >> come over to my side. you know, come and look at that flag being folded slowly, carefully, deliberately and handed to a widow or handed to a mom or handed to a dad that just lost their son in a war. i have seen that countless times. i have seen that flag flying baits overrun by isis and al qaeda. friends of mine like doing absolutely everything in their power to keep their flag flying. and you know, to have the national anthem come on and you use that as an opportunity to disrespect the flag while trying to promote some issues, it just -- it's the wrong time. abby: he made the point. he said we are over there fighting so that people can speak their minds, so that they can kneel. so they can do whatever they want really in this country. i think this is a real leadership problem within the nfl and the fact that we
4:10 am
are still talking about this. they will can't get it under control. let's have those conversations, right? bring the players. in figure out how we move forward as a league. how can we make football enjoyable again for every american. pete: there is your problem right there. roger goodell he can tig figure out how to tell them what kind of socks and shoes to wear but not whether or not to stand for the national anthem. ed: they are not having that problem in major league baseball and the nhl. by the way to abby's question and points which is an important one about bringing people together, some of these players have simply said i don't want to meet with the president. i don't want to meet with community leaders. i think kenny stills, we should point out one of the miami dolphin players who has kneeled has met with community leaders. he wants to talk about police issues. he is trying to make a difference. is he not just doing the protest and maybe an empty -- he is actually saying let's find a solution. pete: nba has figured it out as well. remember the golden state warriors said i'm not going to the white house you are entitled to personal perspective and some of us will disagree with that at
4:11 am
least they are standing for the anthem. they have a policy. and they have figured it out. abby: talk to anyone who has gone into the white house or sat down across the table from him and left saying he didn't listen to them or didn't care about what they had to say u that's the only way to move forward is to have conversations. figure out where the problems are and how we move forward. the kneeling, as much as people feel like there are issues in this country and there are issues that we need to solve. is that the most productive way to do it. ed: good point. abby: send us your thoughts on that friends@foxnews.com. a highway motorcycle officer and a driver that he pulled over are killed during a traffic stop. a pickup truck slamming into men on the side of the road. will california state highway patrol saying officer kurt griff died doing what he loved. >> he was the ultimate public servant. he loved what he did. he loved being a chp officer. he loved being a chp motorcycle officer. abby: the driver of the pickup truck is now in the

about the president and level of respect? >> well, jim mattis is living proof that trump is neither unethical nor incompetent. the fact that he was chosen first, i think, speaks to president trump's ability to recognize someone who knows how to win. and both -- and someone who has really brought appeal to both -- to all people and all sides of very divided nation. abby: so much of the show that we do here is highlighting what makes this country so great and the patriots among us that sacrificed every single day for all of us. and he is the number one example when i can think of that type of person. what can we learn? what do you hope people take from this book? >> well, he is a role model. i mean, his commitment to the nation andselves to the nation and his dedication and self-discipline over many years is a role model to me. and i hope to many americans who would like to have an

he was flying dangerously close to homes watch this. >> holy [bleep] >> oh my god. what is happening right now? pete: yeah, military fighter jets closely tailing the plane before it crashed on a remote island. police say no other passengers were on the plane. authorities confirming this was not an act of terrorism. let's bring in now sal lagonia, pilot and aviation expert. this was not an act of terrorism, sal, a future iteration could be. i mean, that's what scares people about this. this was a guy on a suicide run. what if someone like him had the same access and stole a plane? how do we prevent that? >> and i'm not sure there is a way of preventing it here have you an airline employee with proper credentials in a proper access area of the airport. we call it airport operations area. and he has got access to get on that aircraft. if he knows enough to start it, and to move it, what can you do? now, we did find out that the aircraft was in a
4:35 am
maintenance situation. so it wasn't at a gate where he would have needed extra help to get the airplane pushed back and then back out on the taxiway or on the run way. but, if it was at a maintenance gate, he could have literally walked on board with his proper credentials and shut the door and flown away. ed: how quickly can you start a plane like this it's not like putting a key in an ignition. i have never been in cockpit like that. how long would it have taken? >> it's a turbo plot so it's ultimately a jet engine. you need to know what valves to pull, how to move the fuel around the aircraft so it's not in one place. how to get the pumps going and how to start it typically what's called apu on board some aircraft that actually start the engine running. so that it can pick up speed and then begin. ed: it takes minutes. >> not something that happens in a minute or two. five or ten minute
4:36 am
operation. abby: luckily not in a place like new york where there are buildings everywhere and there was water that the plane could go to. certain point fighter jets had to come up and steer it in a certain direction or try to at least. at what point do they make that decision we need to shoot this down or we need to get up there and solve. this they have internal protocols to make that happen. i think we have to say they did a fantastic job. they kept that plane away from population. kept it away from buildings. they kept it over almost deserted island, over in the middle of the water. and when they couldn't get him to go down in a military base, which is what they wanted, then they tried to keep him over the water where he could do the least amount of damage. ed: if you are in charge of operations management this morning at jfk or chicago o'hare, what are you doing? >> redoubling my efforts to make sure the security protocols that are supposed to be in place are in place. i think that's the bottom line. we have plenty of security at airports. we have to make sure they are not failing. pete: how many ongoing

screening happens of employees. obviously a clearance goes in to being hired to be secure area. things change. people can get radicalized. who is alerted of when someone could be suspicious. >> it varies. the faa has their own protocols in place that require airlines to do a certain amount of that but, for the most part. it's drug testing and alcohol testing. it's not the mental illness testing because that is so hard to do. pete: or the radicalization testing. >> or the radicalization testing. we don't know when that's going to happen. you could test somebody today and he could be radicalized three days from now. abby: almost impossible. it's a really tough thing we are faced with. >> it sure is. abby: thank you for your insight. really horrible story. i want to give you other headlines we are following this morning. starting with this. a judge rejects plea deals for two men charged in the deadly oakland warehouse fire. a california judge saying that derek showed no remorse for the 2016 blaze killing 36 people. prosecutors say that harris

conspiracy to defraud the government, major fraud, obstruction of justice, abuse of power. when he testifies on the 28th of this month, i would not be surprised if he invokes his right against incrimination, self-incrimination. pete: what would his justification presumably be for all these contacts with christopher steele for not disclosing his wife who is by the way a russian linguist and expert on russian affairs could have been a part of that. >> he and his wife hated donald trump. they wanted to help hillary clinton. so there was this can a can kal author. glenn simpson who was paying for it through hillary clinton's campaign. ed: fusion gps. >> that's right. this little kabul was pushing this phony dossier. james comey and his confederates were all in. they used this document as a pretext not only to investigate donald trump but to spy on the trump campaign

the investigators because the law enforcers, as i write in the book, became the law breakers and great irony here is they are not under investigation, but donald trump is and the evidence is pretty overwhelming that they framed him. ed: a whole new layer this week when had you john solomon at the hill newspaper communications we teased at the lead-in. more than we ever knew between bruce ohr at the justice indictment and christopher steele the former british spy. what struck me is that we learn in the communications that the dossier author, steele, is lobbying bruce ohr at the obama justice department on behalf of a russian oligarch, a billionaire who had ties to the russian mob. so here we are investigating whether or not the trump campaign had ties to russia and christopher steele, the anti-trump dossier guy is lobbying for a russian oligarch? >> he is on the payroll of hillary clinton and he is on the payroll of the fbi this
4:49 am
is guy who admitted in british court documents that i dug up and they are reprinted in the book, he essentially said that his dossier wasn't worth the paper it was written on. he called it unverifiable. the problem is that james comey and others used it to spy on the trump campaign, they perpetrated a fraud on the court, and they were desperate to verify it so they continued to use christopher steele through bruce ohr to try to verify that which they had illegally used. pete: ultimately their shield wags the fact that hillary clinton was going to win. what happened though after she didn't between that election day and his swearing? did things ramp up? >> absolutely. panic mode set in over the department of justice and the fbi because they realized, my goodness, we can be exposed for all the frauds we have perpetrated and the laws we have broken. so, that's when they continued their efforts with

5:02 am
because at 8:00 last night, 29-year-old airline employee got into a plane, a commercial aircraft, got off the ground and flew around the puget sound for 90 minutes starting at 8:00 before he crashed into a small island. we understand that president trump has been briefed on the situation. the fbi is taking the lead in the investigation. the ntsb and national transportation safety board may or may not send a full team out here. of the video is stunning shows the turbo prop doing loops and flying low to the ground. the military quickly sent up 2 f-15 fighter jets to follow the plane and shoot it down if necessary. the man who stole the plane worked for the horizon airline as a ground service agent. he joked with air traffic controllers about his flying skills. even though he was not a pilot. he also made it clear he was suicidal. >> i don't want to hurt no one. i just want you to whisper sweet nothings into my ear.
5:03 am
i have a lot of people that care about me. and it's going to disappoint them to hear that i did this. >> air traffic control was very calm. they tried to get the man first to land at nearby air base and then land the plane in water. the fighter jets did shot shoot the plane down as it flew south of tacoma. an hour and a half after the plane took off it crashed on a small island. piece county officials say this was not an act of terrorism. >> there is no independent occasion that he did this to threaten anybody. there is no indication of any kind of terrorist link or anything like that. >> the crash took place on countketron island. population about 20. a handful of houses there. the plane went down in a wooded area. started a small wildfire that was quickly put out. no one on the ground was injured. the man's name has not been

pete: at first you want to dismiss it and say this is a guy on a suicide mission didn't want to hurt anybody but himself. but, put anyone else with the wrong motives inside that plane and as we saw on 9/11 a missile that could be used. ed: so scary. pete: imagine if it towards turned seattle or happened here or any other city, the screening behind the scenes that we don't have our arms wrapped around. abby: makes you wonder how this could happen. grounds service agent. he was not a pilot. i don't know what credentials he had. but how was he able to get in that plane? obviously there were other people that saw this happening on the ground there at the airport. they would have seen the plane take off. we don't have all the answers to this. it does make you wonder how it happened to begin with and how this never happens again. we had sal lagonia on our show earlier. pilot and aviation expert. could easily access the plane with proper credentials. here's what he said. >> here have you an airline
5:06 am
employee with proper credentials in a proper access area of the airport. we call it airport operations area. and he has got access to get on that aircraft. if he knows enough to start it, and to move it. what can you do? now, we did find out that the aircraft was in a maintenance situation. so, it wasn't at a gate where he would have needed extra help to get the airplane pushed back and back out on the taxiway or runway. but, if it was at a maintenance gate. he could have quite literally walked on board it with his proper credentials and shut the door. ed: one of our viewers on twitter sent me a note how in the world based on that, if you have access to that area you can just get on a plane and take off? pete: you never know. pete: how has this not happened before? thankful it hasn't happened before but it's remarkable that just with that access he was able to get on a plane and take off and start joy riding. abby: when you talk about mental illness you can test for drugs and alcohol, but the world we are living in
5:07 am
today, how do you test employees for their mental state? how do you know that one day they are fine and the next day they completely change. pete: that's something something that sal talked about. they don't it on mental illness and radicalization. think about people that get clearances that could eventually get radicalized they are behind security border. in minneapolis i pay attention it's a home airport for me. the tsa last year failed 95% of the time trying to stop contraband from coming through just regular security. i would also note, obviously there has been a serious problem of radical islamic radicalization in the somali muslim population there. a lot of them work at the airport. that's not to impugn those people. hopefully they are wonderful people. but, if you have got the wrong person with the wrong access and you are not screening them repeatedly to make sure they wouldn't do something, you could have serious problems. that's why something like this really matters across the country. abby: how is it balanced someone made the point earlier on twitter you can't

we need to end illegal immigration and to end illegal immigration crime. we cannot accept the fact that gangs like ms-13, the latin king, many of whose members entered the country unlawfully are terrorizing american communities from los angeles to boston. if we want to reduce violent crime, then we have to get serious about illegal immigrant crime. if we're going to get serious about illegal immigration, we can't tolerate sanctuary cities. pete: sanctuary cities are all about illegality and whether you are going to work with law enforcement to enforce the rule of law, or let criminals get away. ed: yeah. you have had democrats in the runup to the mid terms hey the solution is to abolish ice somehow. let's go after the law enforcement agencies they believe they have overstepped their powers and that's the way somehow to make us safer. that's obviously something that's going to be debated about a lot in the weeks ahead. abby: imforeign relation is
5:10 am
one those issues and most important issue for many americans but one i think identifies parties right now. are you on the side of president trump where he wants to build that wall and get rid of sanctuary discuss or are you where some of the democrats are and talking about abolishing ice? i do think there is probably a space in the middle that doesn't often get a voice or often get talked about. the president, this is what he got voted on and campaigned on. doubling down on the border. he has some people that are on his side that are fighting with him. one of those is the governor of texas. greg abbott who was on this show yesterday. and here is what he highlighted. >> what's going on in philadelphia is like an alice in wonderland story where it's topsy-turvy where the mayor is blaming ice or the federal government for trying to enforce the laws for being the cause of this. that is insanity. it is the sanctuary city policies that both attract and allow in people who commit these heinous crimes just exactly what happened to kate steinfully san francisco, what happened in
5:11 am
philadelphia is not the only story like this. but going back in fedex texas, we passed that law two years ago to make sure that we would not have occasions like this. pete: hone in on one word he said attract. they also become a magnet. if you know that your sanctuary city. people who might have nefarious intentions probably go there more likely than somewhere that cracks down. ed: he mentioned philadelphia wasn't that the mayor who did the dance. pete: roll a tape on that. abby: i cannot highlight the importance of congress through all of this. you have the blame put on ice agents. blames put on individuals and, yet, we have not passed an immigration law that really has been effective that helps define the country. ed: republicans have control of the house couldn't pass the bill. house republicans could not pass a bill. remember a couple months ago? they utterly failed. abby: send us your thoughts on that friends@foxnews.com. a lot going on this morning. i want to bring you of those headlines we are all watching closely.

5:25 am
leaking. james comey, another one that leaked, right? he was still talking to the fbi and beirutor was still taking those conversations. nont. that plays into this calculus you makes a to whether you will submit to an interview. ohr is reportedly a friend of former british spy christopher steele who compiled that infamous dossier and ohr's wife was employee of fusion gps the firm that hired steele. has not commented publicly about any of these allegations or department of justice. one doj official noted to absz this wednesday that ohr was removed from the deputy attorney's office when his ties to steele became known. critics of the president contend all of this has been known for months publicly and asked why the president's team is choosing to focus on ohr, now. pete: here to react is the perfect guy dan bongino author of the upcoming book spy gate which talks about a lot of this. new development here.
5:26 am
we'll didn't know about the relationship. we didn't know the scope of the communications between bruce ohr, the number four at doj and folks that work at fusion gps and the dossier. >> this has been a year of my life researching for this book. i like to categorize it this way. spy georgia tech is three not separate but larger subscandals beneath. the first bun is the spying scandal. they were spying using human intelligence we have seen that the second one is the setup and the framing of the trump team, this component, the ohr team this is the information laundering information. money laundering with information. the probable they had with bruce ohr. now we know in this is now on the record not conspiracy stuff. this is real. we know fbi source in christopher steele who in their own words, pete, was deemed not suitable for use and sekulow was said was fired for leaking and not being a quality source anymore, his information then, which was not suitable for use, was relaundered back into the department of justice through bruce ohr, the number four as you just accurately stated whose wife
5:27 am
is working for the same company hired by mrs. clinton to gin up. ed: communications had christopher steele after being dumped by the finn as i recall some of the messages in the hill newspaper basically had christopher steele going to bruce ohr and saying hey, can you get me back in with the fbi and mueller? that he wanted, as you say, to relaunder this information that maybe had been dismissed, the unverified dossier. get it in the hands of the fbi. get it in the hands of robert mueller? >> not only that yes, you are right. that's the whole information, that's the big umbrella picture. the information laundering information. some of the messages, ed, are down right strange. one of them says to bruce ohr, hey, we have to protect our guy. we can't send our guy back home. what everybody is wondering on twitter and on the internet now has been researching this like me, i have my speculations, i'm not going to say tonight air. who is our guy? who else was christopher steele working with and trying to get information to the department of justice? remember, after he is terminated as a source for
5:28 am
being not suitable. let me get this straight. they spied on the president. they started the most significant counter intelligence investigation in modern u.s. history against a presidential candidate. and they are using a guy who was fired by the fbi as their primary source who is not suitable? he is working with someone else? one other thing. he also is connected now we know to a russian oligarch directly connected. pete: we talked about that. >> to vladimir putin. so where is the real collusion scandal here? this is amazing this story and in a very sad way. abby: it is. dan, you have been covering it so closely and researching for your book the past year. it's tough for us to stay on top everything that's going on. tough to know which name, what does that person do? what is that connected to? big picture, what should people know about this russian investigation. everything that's gone on the past year? what is the most important thing in your mind and how should people be thinking of that? >> that the mueller probe in my opinion is a smoke screen. it's a smoke screen to cover for the democrats' actual collusion with russians. i have no doubt, listen, i'm

5:30 am
she is a nonstop gaffe master. i ran for office. people say things sometimes you wish you could take back. i could have said that differently we get it the thing with pelosi is she seems to never say anything right. talking about the tax cuts they are just crumbs. crumbs to people who are working -- imagine a coal miner in west virginia who gets 1,000s dollars bonus and go home with his family and hey we are going to disney world or something. that's crumbs to them? then of course weave had the ms-13 comment. how do you defend ms-13? why do you that? of course, we had the oldy but goody the old well we will find out what's in obamacare after we pass it. she is the gift that keeps on giving. abby: it's not just republicans. as pete mentioned you have got dozens of democrats and a lot of them are the new faces and the new blood coming into the democratic party. o'connor one of them. ed: a list that's scrolling right there. >> over 50. abby: they are saying they wouldn't vote for her as speaker. what does that tell you about her? her job is an important one. not only does she raise money for the party. you are basically the spokes

5:37 am
it a terrifying scenario, there is always going to be this level of risk when this kind of system. ed: talk about that response and getting the military involved. that is after the plane has already been taken as you say. >> sure. ed: the idea that you as an expert and some of the other we have had on earlier. i have had people contact me on social media your experts are basically saying it's relatively easy once you are in a secure area to take a plane. i just think that's very jarring for a lot of people waking up this morning. >> i guess. but what is the alternative? you have a mechanic who has to get on that aircraft, right? he has to understand how this plane works. which he obviously did. you know, have you got to know your people. have you got to -- you know, they do go through a level of background checks. at a certain point, how do you know this fellow is the day that is the day that he is going to finally try to take out the plane and do some aerodynamics he has never done before. pete: that's the point. you can't control for everything. they may have will toed the protocols even before and after. how much screening is done for mental health or for

radicalization in these positions that have so much access? >> i mean, i don't think -- there is never enough that can you do. but, when somebody decides to do, this i don't think there is a test out there that probably could have found this out. and if you get into the testing, it's a level of testing that's incredibly expensive. incredibly time-consuming and the carriers are saying okay, what's really the level of risk here? we are trying to find a needle in a haystack that's going to cost us millions of dollars and we will pass that onto the consumer to find some body. i have always been of the opinion of there is a infinite way of people -- ways that people can hurt us but there is only a finite number of people to do that. so the more money we can shift into that mental health, the background checks, the better off we are going to be. abby: scott, we don't live in a perfect world. i think this is what you are saying. no matter how many background checks do you and look into someone and prepare for, this there are still things that are going

5:50 am
accusations and to have them be false is ultimately harmful. abby: why don't you think she wants to debate ben shapiro. obviously he knows his sufficient stuff they may we hem negligently disagree on the issues. it seems like she is running for office because she cares about the issues she is passionate about. why not say let's have that debated? >> what it comes down to she sproble just scared that ben shapiro may be able to out debate her. that's what it comes down to. she doesn't want to be in a situation where she is going to be challenged. i think when she has gone on other networks. she has been given softball questions. people have skirted around issues with her. i don't think ben shapiro would do that. abby: it would certainly be a fascinating debate to watch. good to have you with us this morning. >> thank you for having me. abby: coming up on the show nfl anthem prosecute protests wrapping up as preseason begins. enough to president trump has a new message for those kneelers. plus, we are new yorking down pins in our bowling alley to celebrate, of course, national bowling day and go boggle.com is making

abby: why are you doing that? pete: because i've built him up to knock him down. abby: good morning all of you it's national bowling day so we'll continue to bowl at the end of the show. pete: straight up competition. the trophy will be there ed. abby: he's got that spin. pete: i don't know how many frames are we going one or two? ed: you're a lefty too, right? pete: nope. ed: we had a lot of news overnight. abby: we do begin with a fox news alert, the suicidal alaska airlines employee killed after crashing a stolen plane. pete: he took the aircraft commercial aircraft that could seat 76 people from the seattle tacoma international airport, flying it or some say up to 90 minutes before crashing it with just himself on there. ed: and went about 25 miles dan springer is live at the airport with what we know at this hour. good morning, dan. reporter: good morning, ed, abbey and pete. it was 90 minutes of shear panic and high drama out here. nobody knew what this guy was going to do.
6:03 am
29 year old airline employee as you said, got into a commercial airplane and took off and flew around the puget sound for 90 minutes before crashing into a small island south of tacoma. the video is absolutely amazing. it shows the q400 turbo top doing loops and flying low to the ground lots and lots of people took their cell phones out and took video it just seemed so bizarre the 76 seat plane is made by bombardier and the military quickly sent up two f-15 fighter jets that came from portland. they came up in about seven minutes they were here and they followed it and they were ready to shoot it down if necessary. the man who stole the plane worked for horizon eras a ground service agent. those are the people who direct planes to the gate and deice planes during the winter. he joked with air traffic controllers about his flying skills even though he was not a pilot. he calls himself a broken man and sounded suicidal.
6:04 am
>> i don't want to hurt no one. i just want you to wisper sweet nothings into my ear. i've got a lot of people that care about me and it's going to disappoint them to hear that i did this. >> the air traffic control tried to keep him away from population centers they tried to get him to land at first a military base and then over water. the fighter jets did not shoot the plane down as it flew south of seattle towards tacoma and then south of tacoma. an hour and a half after the plane took off it crashed in a very small island. pierce county officials say this was not an act of terrorism. >> there is no indication that he did this to threaten anybody. there's no indication of any kind of terrorist link or anything like that. reporter: the crash happened an ketron island between tacoma and olympia. there are a handful of houses about 20 people live there, the plane went down in a wooded area , did start a fire but
6:05 am
nobody on the ground was hurt. the mans name was not released and the fbi is taking the lead in this investigation which is a little unusual. usually the national transportation safety board would handle the lead in any commercial aircraft crash investigation; however in this case i think it's pretty clear what caused the crash. it was the lack of skill on the part of the man flying the plane back to you. abby: dan springer live for you. pete: thank you, dan. abby: we've been talking about this investigation all morning and still the questions remain but it shouldn't be lost on any of us how sad this was. every time there's a suicide i can't help but think what was going on behind closed doors. i grew up mormon. there's a hymn that goes in the quiet heart is hidden sorrow that the eye can't see and that's so well said in moments like this and obviously the employees and people around him they must all be shocked as well and it's just heartbreaking that he would rather kill himself than continue to live life in whatever pain he was feeling it's just a sad part of the story. pete: definitely sad and scary for people that wake up and say
6:06 am
there's airports like this all across the country with people that have legitimate clearance and access to planes. this guy was a mechanic or involved in the mechanisms of the plane, had basic knowledge of flying and what if someone with even worse intentions were to get a hold of that. what if it had steered toward seattle or the needle or one of the high rises in that downtown brings back thoughts unfortunately of terrorism. ed: talked to various senior senior faa officials like scott brenner who served during the bush administration and talked that people with access as pete suggested can do this but the good news is that the system actually worked. >> we always knew something like this could happen and when it does happen we actually had a system in place where we had air traffic control immediately identify that this aircraft was not an authorized flight. they contact the military. military scrambles, air traffic controllers clear the air space, and then we just monitor to see
6:07 am
what this guy is going to do. it is a terrifying scenario, but there's always going to be this level of risk with this kind of system. abby: we don't live in a perfect world as great as our men and women are that serve this country and protect whether it's with our airlines or anything else, i mean, bad things are going to happen and we always have to question how could we prevent it and what can we do better to make sure we feel safer and that this doesn't happen again but to this point given the situation you had the people there responding the pete: i think we'll get another look at background checks for medical health. abby: well the president was up and the white house is very aware of what's gone on and they sent out a statement saying they're working closely with folks on the ground there. ed: the president has been briefed on the situation and obviously is aware of the federal investigation that's ongoing. another thing the president is on top of as well, obviously has been something else we've been talking about this morning, we talked for a long time about the investigation of the investigators when it comes to the whole russia probe and just
6:08 am
a few moments ago the president tweeted, why isn't the fbi giving andrew mccabe text messages to judicial watch or appropriate governmental authorities? fbi won't even give up one. i may have to get involved. do not destroy, he says, of the messages in all caps. what are they hiding? mccabe's wife took big campaign dollars from hillary people. will the fbi ever recover its one stellar reputation so badly damaged by comey, mccabe, peter strzok, his lover the lovely lisa page and other top official s now dismissed or fired so many of the great men and women of the fbi have been hurt by these clowns and losers. pete: to give you a little bit more context, judicial watch just tweeted in response to the president's tweet they said as president trump mentions judicial watch is still seeking mccabe's text messages and other communications of stock, page, comey, and others as part of the ongoing effort to hold the fbi
6:09 am
and doj accountable. they will say the fbi has still not been forthcoming that they've classified too much, slow walked too much and as a result we still don't know the extent. ed: we've only seen the text messages between peter strzok and lisa page, andrew mccabe now added to the mix as well what about his e-mails and text messages remember the previous text we heard about had to talk about an insurance policy this meeting in andrews office presumably andrew mccabe so we've seen peter strzok and lisa page going back and forth not all their messages but some. what about andrew mccabe's messages the president highlight ing something. abby: i think the biggest word that comes to so many minds is accountability. where is the accountability when it comes to the fbi and doj and how they've handled all of this? how is it you can have this russia investigation play out for so long on all the taxpayer money going towards that and yet there's nothing done here. no one, peter strzok and others, after all of this. ed: he was forced out of the fbi
6:10 am
but had there been accountability. pete: exactly only after things were exposed and this sentence stuck out to both of us. i may have to get involved do not destroy of course the president has the power to declassify whatever he wants, and order the fbi to release more and more and more if the fbi won't comply. what does that sentence mean? does it mean something might happen before the mid-term? we don't know we'll keep looking for those answers. abby: whether that's the right strategy for him or not. pete: he feels like they've slow walked the wrong things. ed: remember rudy guiliani a couple days ago said there's a lot more coming he suggested about the investigators investigating all of this, possible obstruction of justice he said and a lot of the presidents critics maybe there's more they know that we don't know yet. abby: all right pete: absolutely abby: still never going to end is it? pete: it's not. abby: there's not to be accountability and punishment when they're a bad actor.
6:11 am
pete: imagine if it had been a democratic candidate. no, really. abby: that's what i always say if you care about the country, care about the job of the doj it doesn't matter what your party is you should care about what has gone on there. send us your thoughts, friends. turning to other headlines that we're following from here, a highway motorcycle officer and a driver he pulled over are both killed during a traffic stop. a pick-up truck slamming into the men on the side of the road the california state highway patrol saying that the officer died doing what he loved. >> he was the ultimate public servant. he loved what he did. he loved being a chp officer. he loved being a chp motorcycle officer. abby: the driver of the pick-up truck is in the hospital cooperating with authorities. he's a 19 year veteran of the force and an ex-marine leaves behind his wife and three children. so sad. and there's this, two police officers are among four people killed in a deadly rampage in
6:12 am
canada officers were responding to a call of shots fired in new brunswick. they came across two victims on the ground just moments before getting shot themselves. the accused shooter is now being identified as a 48 year old man suffering from serious injuries after a gun fight with police. a motive is still unclear. also this confirmation hearings for succomb in my brett kavanaugh will begin next month. the hearings are expected to last between three and four days republicans are hoping to get kavanaugh seated on the high court as early as october. president trump nominated kavanaugh to replace retiring justice anthony kennedy. and nasa scrubs what would have been a historical launch overnight with one minute 55 seconds to go in the countdown. officials were forced to shutdown the so-called mission to touch the sun after missing its launch window the probe is expected to come within 3.8 million miles of the sun by december of 2024. the launch is rescheduled for

6:17 am
well senator harris accused the critics of weaponizing the term identity politics of the listen. >> i have a problem guys, with that phrase, identity politics. that phrase is used to divide and it is used to distract. abby: but still, identity politics continues to be a hallmark of the left, so when will she and other progressives realize it is a losing message? here to weigh in fox news contributor and radio talk show host tammy truce always good to have you with us and you've been writing about this this is something that you've dug into. >> well look what she was saying at that net roots conference a week ago is fascinating. they're not saying that identity politics which is the idea you should vote for someone simply because of who they are, based on gender or race, or sexuality, not about the issues of the policies they stand for. that's what the left has been invested in so when the name of
6:18 am
it suggests of course that in fact, that using identity politics, calling it out is. but what we know is that in fact americans are rejecting it and i think that's what they are reacting to. they want to still apply it but they want to gas light the american people particularly their own base, into still being invested in it because when you say you should vote for someone like hillary just because she's a woman that means you're not supposed to care about the issues or policies. one thing we do know an independent woman's voice survey a group of which i'm president found that 85% of americans reject the idea of identity politics. they want more women in office that's clearly a goal. we want diversity and of course the nation is diverse but the idea of just voting for someone based on as example if they're woman is rejected and that includes 84% of women and only about i think it was 25% of democrats think it's a good idea , so overall americans are rejecting the concept. abby: you make such a good point on getting lost focusing on
6:19 am
identity politics and forgetting about the issues about what actually drives people to go to the polls. democrats i think could learn a lot from o'connor from the 12th district in ohio. he was not an anti-trump democrat he was 31 year old fresh face of the party focused on the issues he cared about more of a moderate voice. >> that's where the moderates come in too is if you're moderate you can talk about the policies. the further left you go you don't want to because your policies are not accepted by the american people and fail and we can use president obama as an example of that. he talked in very vague terms during a campaign, hope and change. when he gets in he of course then implements what were very far left policies but they didn't even know how to implement them. abby: but it's a great point when campaigning it's not just about energizing your base that's important for the primary but you've got to win the country and you've got to get outside the party. >> it's the people who rejected the parties, effectively the
6:20 am
average person, the normal who wants to know what are you going to do specifically because his term for example, is over 3 million women fell into poverty african americans did not do well so we want diversity but specifics and policy that works and that means moderate to center right framework and that's difficult for the left. abby: maybe the democrats could use you as a consultant tammy. >> i think they know about the answers here. abby: good to have you with us. coming up on the show a towering tribute to president trump the inspiration behind this 20-foot tall presidential piece of art, more on that. plus president trump has got a message for democrats. he says support nancy pelosi. greg gutfeld, you know you love him. he's live next. >> ♪ ♪ ♪motorcycle revving

pete: welcome back. well president trump has a message for democrats, support nancy pelosi. abby: yeah, the president tweet ing this. democrats please do not distance yourself from nancy pelosi. she's a wonderful person whose ideas and policies may be bad but who should definitely be given a fourth chance. she is trying very hard and has every right to take down the democratic party if she has veered too far left. ed: someone as good enough tries hard enough and he's a great guy , greg gutfeld here to weigh in author of the brand new book, classic rants from the five. how did you come up with the title? >> it was hard. i spent months i did some market research and i realized my name is great and i write monologues
6:25 am
so i put them together and it was originally called the gutfeld hoax and then liars losers and leakers but i thought i'm going to do this. abby: greg maybe you could run for house speaker? >> i think it would be pretty good but they would have to change the podium because i can't see over it. abby: you're a little short? >> yeah. abby: what do you make that you do have a number of folks within nancy pelosi's own party fresh faces coming but also people already on the job saying he want out? >> yeah, that could change once everything, because she's pretty powerful. it's like you can complain to your parents all the time but when they yell dinner you come to the table. the tweet though is fan fantastic that grade a trolling it's like an insult, disguised as a defense it's like saying oh , isn't it great that you have ed henry on fox & friends? pete: he's trying so hard and it keeps him busy, out of trouble, you know ed. ed: wait is that a joke? abby: so well played.
6:26 am
so true. >> it is i love it but it's a very unique, we have a very unique leader whether you love him or hate him our president goes on twitter and trolls people and it's good humored i think that's a good-humored tweet. let's face it he does get along with pelosi. ed: these daring deputies that promote her right before the mid-term. >> exactly. pete: fourth time is a charm. >> yes. pete: but you add her to the socialistic from the bronx he's pointing out the obvious that the longer we talk about them the better it is. >> i do think though the more you talk about cortez i think the better she's going to get because she's going to react to the criticism so and that's why i think well maybe i'm wrong though. i haven't seen the improvement yet but i have a feeling i always believe that criticism helps you. that's why i'm constantly writing e-mails, pete. pete: late at night. e-mails, do better, pete. do better. abby: greg accepting the criticism also is part of that so the gutfeld monologue so people are wondering what that is and if you're watching you know what it is.
6:27 am
watch greg here is just a little snip-it. >> [laughter] pete: on crutches you could see the jokes limping toward you. the dinner is now just old news, good job, like the straws you try to ban, you suck, but unlike the straws, not in a good way. the world is getting hotter and it's not global warming. it's political tension driven by emotion. who knew the lasting role would be irrelevant gas bag pleasing irrelevant peers? ed: monologues are classic they usually start with scribble on a paper. >> yes exactly. pete: where do you get the inspiration every day? >> i woke up every morning strong cup of coffee and look at what's on tv and what's not been said step one, and what is the angle they haven't heard and then i try to make that angle such that it's when you hear it you go that's exactly what i was thinking so the viewers when they are listening they go he's saying exactly what i'm thinking but i haven't articulated it like that so it's a two-step
6:28 am
process. what's not been said and what matches the unspeakable truth that lives inside your head. app abby: how much do you mention robots and unicorns in the book? >> 40% is robots and 30% is unicorns. pete: but let's be real here. your mind works on another plane or analogies and comparisons where do you come up with the comparisons you use to make things relevant? >> well, i pretend i use this tip when i mentioned it in the book i pretend that i'm drunk so i just sit there and go okay, the democratic agenda is as thin as hair, something like that, a line that i've often used, but anyway that's what happens and also i'll step into the hallway of our pod and if i can't think of something, i'll start the

sentence, you know, and i'll say like i don't know the democratic agenda is as bloated as, and some will say michael moore after three pizzas and i go oh, that's too obvious, besides i used that yesterday but you play ping pong with your co-workers. it's very good. i won't be making jokes about the view any more abbey as long as you're on it. how am i going to do that? you've ruined the view for me. abby: greg i love you. >> [laughter] abby: all right, go buy gutfeld monologues get your greg in your life. >> love you guys. pete: thanks for getting up early for us. >> >> my pleasure. ed: check it out, meanwhile, right in the middle of a busy new york street now a cab driver could be in big trouble the video you've got to see. pete: plus we are knocking down pins for national bowling day, just ahead, ed and i will be facing off one on one, for the trophy on the fox & friends bowl

6:45 am
this season, first thursday of the preseason you've got players kneeling again because the nfl didn't figure it out, they thought they did and then they waffled and now you've got kneeling again. it doesn't matter if it happens season after season it remains offensive to everyone that understands how significant that flag is. ed: we have the freedom of expression in this country of course people can protest this is america but you also are in a workplace essentially when you're on a team like this i think is what is part the president is alluding to there and when the boss says got to get to work no kneeling that should be followed but number two we can vote it's a marketplace and we can vote with our wallets and we saw ratings dip last year and people going less and less people going to stadiums last year it'll be interesting i'm getting tweets from people saying i'm skipping the nfl this year. abby: this is when leadership matters more than ever as you said ed they have every right to protest in this country that's what living in democracy is all about but if you're roger goodell we should not be here a
