3:02 am
they should be greater at snow because they are closer north. steve: they're not good at drizzle. ainsley: cold in washington but not puerto rico where a lot of democrats were partying and having a good time going to see hamilton and that takes us to our top story. brian: right it was senator menendez doesn't have a shirt on there. there is a reason why he wasn't. day 24 of the shutdown while the president sits at the white house. ainsley: dozens of democrats in san juan with their families and meetings down there are lobbyists and even enjoyed a broadway show hamilton. steve: rob schmitt wee have dispatched him to puerto rico where there was a winter retreat. rob, when the lawmakers flew down to puerto rico, did they pass any of the tsa agents who were getting no pay but still having to work? rob: i doubt it because they had a private charter, steve. but that's a good point. you know, that's the optics of this. and that's why it doesn't
3:03 am
look that good. i think pelosi was invited, said she was coming. the shutdown happened. she cancelled. there is 30 plus democrats more than 30 down here with their entire families. it's more than 100 people. they are put up in this fancy hotel behind me. the buss are lined up right now. take them to breakfast and out for the day. in this is a winter retreat by a democratic political action committee. they are lobbying for more money and more attention for this island territory, the united states that has been through the ringer the last couple of years. puerto rico is debt-ridden and has been for a lot of years. and then they had that hurricane in 2017, september. maria. which just disseminated this island and caused tens of billions of dollars in damage. and that just made everything so much worse. today, this group of democrats will be lobbied some more by a latino political action committee. and then they are going it meet with local leaders there is a lot of anger here over this federal oversight program that was implemented to help this island live within its means and slash a lot of the welfare programs.
3:04 am
they have been spending way more than they bring in here on this island. and the local politicians also are trying to get more money from the federal government for disaster relief and they want more control of that money after the hurricane they want to be able to decide how it gets spent and not have that oversight. but, of course, there is plenty of leisure time. favorite photo of the day bob menendez nice golden tan in january on the beach here in san juan, very much enjoying himself. as i said, they got to bring the families down. it's a work/play trip. the optics of it aren't that good. the show hamilton very popular. they have a -- they brought a show down here, a special performance that they did on sunday. all of the democrats went to see that. and then they got to party with the cast afterwards and they paid for their own tickets, we understand. here is a couple of tweets. sarah sanders, democrats in congress are so alarmed about federal workers not getting paid they're partying on the beach instead of negotiating a compromise to reopen the
3:05 am
government and secure the border. ronna mcdaniel chair it should be stated schumer and pelosi we don't believe are here and also according to democrats, they are here to see what needs to be done in this territory that has really had a rough bout, especially since 2017 in that terrible hurricane. there is two sides to this story, of course. we'll send it back to you. brian: rob, i want you to stay there as long as it takes to get to the bottom of it. find out exactly what is going on there. don't want you back in rough weather. rob: we cropped it i have got my bikini on here. [laughter] steve: rob schmitt reporting live from puerto rico. so he mentioned that there were lobbyists. there are 109 lobbyists. there are 30 members of congress, which makes almost four lobbyists for almost every member of congress.
3:06 am
some of the corporations represented r.j. rendell, facebook, comcast, amazon, intel and verizon. ainsley: to rob's point the optics aren't good. you know there are 800,000 workers not getting paid see pictures of them going to work and congressman supposed to be doing something in washington and see them on the beaches with their families and know they are down there having a good time it doesn't look good. brian: abc, cbs, and nbc did not cover it the president did tweet about it. it was smart. the fact that he stayed through christmas, stayed through new year's, stayed through the shutdown, can he possibly get a partner to negotiate. and what is that negotiating about? well, let's talk about what's happening. we are in day 24, the longest shutdown in american history. american governmental history. it's over basically $5.8 billion, which is a joke considering the size of our budget. but so far if you look at the polling it looks as though the democrats have public sentiment on their
3:07 am
side. abc says 53% blame the president and republicans. 29% blame the democrats. however, as time particulars byparticular-ticks by i look for that gap to close. clearlily as of now the president does not have a partner to negotiate with. steve: in fact nks that's what the president has said. the president has said the democrats need to come to the table and let's just talk about this. lindsey graham one of the more moderate republican notice u.s. astronau senate wasy clear open he reopen the government for three weeks. and get something. this president is not going to cave, lindsey says. >> every democrat that i have worked with for about 10 years now has agreed to funding for barrier slash walls on obama's watch, on bush's watch and all of the sudden it's a bad thing on trump's watch. it does per plexer me how you expect this to end when you tell the president of the united states you can't get it you get one dollar
3:08 am
for a wall when in the past the democrats have appropriated billions for the wall. what is he supposed to do? just give in? he is not going to give in. steve: meanwhile senator joe manchin said let's bring the bill up in the senate and see if we could actually get enough republicans and democrats to override the president's veto threat. so that's extraordinary. brian: not a chance. ainsley: lindsey graham says i don't want to speak for the president. i think if democrats gave him something or said, listen, you have got to work with daca recipients, we will give you money for the wall, he thinks the president will go for that. brian: it's an opportunity. other big story over the weekend. really two of them. the "new york times," followed by "the washington post." has two stories related to the russia. well, it's worth going over. essentially they say if -- they were alarmed about a series of things with the fbi. number one, when the president made his statement, hey, russia, if you have any more of hillary clinton's emails let us know. they also noticed he was not making enough negative comments about vladimir putin. and they also said that some
3:09 am
of his policies he was kind of nice about it. having said all of that, they were concerned, too, about the change in the platform of the rnc, of the republican national convention and that it seemed to soften the language on russia. you take all these things together and that led them to believe that the president was actually being investigated as being an asset to vladimir putin. ainsley: that he was working for russia. that's what they were investigating right after he fired james comey. steve: let's look at the headlines. the "new york times" had this one fbi opened inquiry on whether trump was secretly working on behalf of russia. the "new york times" admits there was no evidence that trump ever had any contact with any government officials from russia. and then "the washington post" had the headline trump has cancelled details of his face-to-face encounters with the -- concealed that is to say with putin from senior officials in the administration. as it turns out, the president simply didn't like leaks. remember, the president had only been in office a couple of weeks when the "the
3:10 am
washington post" had on heir front pages all the details of his private conversation with the australian prime minister where he hung up 35 minutes later. -- 35 minutes early. clearly the president didn't like leaks and to reiterate what a lot of people have said about this story since then. this is not a conventional president. ainsley: "the washington post" said he concealed all of his notes. he took his notes that he had with vladimir putin, their one-on-one, that he wanted to take those notes back and he told the interpreter don't talk to anyone in the administration about what we discussed. and the president's team was asked about this, sarah huckabee sanders said that was absurd. brian: it is. it also has a pattern. the president met with president xi in private in mar-a-lago. the in the pet with kim jong un in private in singapore. that's the way he does things. chris christie read the "new york times" story and said wait a second, the president should not tweet in anger and not be angry at all about the "new york times" story. he should embrace it. listen. >> it backs up his narrative. his narrative is that fbi agents were acting in a
3:11 am
rogue manner overstepping the normal course of business because they had something against him. and that story is an extraordinary story that they would open a counter intelligence investigation against a president of the united states. and i think it backs up some of the narrative the president has talked about. brian: all those guys have been exposed -- guys, people. lisa page, peter strzok, mccabe, baker, out, out, out, out. they had a private agenda. this is what the president was saying. then they bring up the fact the steele dossier they claim underlines a lot of their concerns. ainsley: he says when they to people they don't care about this. middle merge there is a disconnect between washington, d.c. and middle america when it comes to the russia probe. let us know what you think about this. steve: 6:11 in new york city and jillian joins us on monday with news of kidnapping so many details we don't know about. ainsley: so glad thee was found. jillian: yes and still so many details. the man accused of kidnapping jayme closs and
3:12 am
murder derlg her parents is prepared to face a judge for the first time today. jake patterson is facing thirfirst degree intentional homicide. jayme's aunt said he had absolutely no contact with the family before the killings in wisconsin. the 13-year-old escaped last week. she is now staying with family. an alabama police sergeant and air force veteran remembered as a hero after he was killed in a shootout. >> he is out here just doing what he loves trying to make a difference. when most of us put on this uniform, that's what it is for. it's not a claim to fame. jillian: sergeant carter leaves behind a wife and kids. he and a fellow officer were hit when they approached suspects trying to break into cars. the other officer was critically injured. two people are in custody. teachers in the nation's second largest school district are set to go on strike today. a los angeles' teacher's union insisting their protest is a last resort after a nearly two year battle for higher pay and
3:13 am
smaller class sizes. the district is scrambling to bring in hundreds of substitutes to keep schools running. the school district serves more than 640,000 students. talk about the playoff the saints marching on after ending the eagles' dreams of a super bowl repeat. >> throws, intercepted went right through jeffrey's hands. it's latimore. jillian: new orleans winning 20-14. they will play the l.a. rams in the championship next sunday. the patriots score 35 first-half point as they pound the l.a. chargers 41-28. they are now taking their eighth straight trip to the afc championship taking on the chiefs next sunday. brian: patriots do it again. they would so overwhelm me. sorry about your eagles. ainsley: i thought about you. jillian: they came out really pounding it hard. you can't score 14 in the first and nothing the rest of the game. brian: i think that's right.
3:14 am
jillian: that's kind of a problem. ainsley: thanks, jillian. steve: meanwhile on this monday there is real beef growing this morning over meat and those who try to pass a veggie burger off. onstate could make that as it a crime. brian: another caravan is gearing up to leave honduras tomorrow. after the u.s. government pledged nearly $6 billion to help that country. should president trump pull that funding? morgan ortegas promises to talk about it. >> good morning. smarter. because to be the best, is to never ever stop making it better. the new 2019 c-class family. lease the c 300 sport sedan for $429 a month at your local mercedes-benz dealer. mercedes-benz. the best or nothing.

3:19 am
short-term and long-term things the president can do. first off are, what's something they could immediately work in congress with we need to change asylum laws. because the president put pressure on mexico. we did see that asylum seekers have to apply for asylum in mexico. you can take that a step further and require for people in these northern triangle countries guatemala, honduras, el salvador to apply in asylum in the nearest u.s. embassy or consulate that would actually have them stay in the country instead of embarking on very dangerous caravan. we have a public perception issue. the problem is with little information in these countries there is this perception when you go on the caravan you get into the united states. and it seems like you are with a bunch of people. there is a public perception that this is successful. that's why people keep doing it. brian: so you have a choice, this family, x family, y family wants to come to america. pay somebody to bring you there. they believe there is safety in numbers. aren't they getting the message that they are being stopped in tijuana that
3:20 am
america is reinforcing its border. >> that's the key. as we continue to secure the border and continue this fight, then that message will percolate. that's part of the challenge and why not just the wall but the dwyer border security package that the president and his team are proposing is so important in this fight. because you are never going to deal with the root cause of these issues which will take a much longer term solution without having a secure border and working on asylum laws. brian: you are calling on a regional conference, why not do it in mexico. >> look at two partners who have been very valuable to us in the region. mexico and colombia. venezuela on the border. it's an absolute rest. we started 1990. it took 15 years to get results. we did invest a lot of money. colombia invested four times more money than the u.s. put. in we could have a plan like, this a regional plan that focuses that has people in the region leading instead of the u.s. always leading. brian: i'm fully in support of your employment here. i will see you on outnumbered a little bit later. >> i can't wait.

3:26 am
associates. so far, jim it, looks like there could be three dozen democrats before it's all done. >> maybe more. the question seems to be a lot who is not running as opposed to who is running? steve: no brainer last time was it would be joe biden. but his son had just died and he said you know what? i'm not into this it this time. now sounds like it is. >> the interesting thing he would be 77 years old when he took office. but then you compare that to president trump who is actually be 76 years old. he is the energizer bunny. it's real interesting. is he a frontrunner but i think it's more on paper than it is in reality. steve: on paper what he is talking about is changing the education system infrastructure and middle class tax reform. but, you know, we have heard joe talk about tax reform for a long time. the president over the weekend tweeted out he is a 1 percenter, run for president a couple times. never gets more than 1% which i do not believe is accurate. >> interesting thing now he gets about 30% of the drank vote. but he is almost like the
3:27 am
pseudo frontrunner here. hillary was getting way over 50% of the vote. the other thing thing is one poll showed about six out of 10 primary voters want somebody new. they want an outsider. steve: all right. then how about elizabeth warren a senator from the great state of massachusetts? >> very, very, very liberal and very, very anti-trump as she has been over the years. some people think she missed her window. they think she would have been the better candidate four years ago. she is already out there and done a couple youtube videos and whatnot. steve: which were catastrophes. >> and she stepped on herself when she did the new d.n.a. test and then when she did having the beer. steve: maybe this is the new guy, somebody nobody has really heard of a former congressman from maryland john delaney declared back in 2017 is he running for president. >> yeah. he declared in july of 2017. a lot of folks say john who? but he has got he could be the outsider. is he trying to run as a centrist, a businessman and it's tough with the left of center and almost the
3:28 am
socialist nature of the democratic primary. that's going to be tough for him to win running an a centrist candidate. steve: especially when we heard from julian castro how corporations and wealthy people need to pay their fair share. then have you tulsi gabbard ohio believe was considered in the trump administration a democrat from the great state of hawaii. >> that's exactly right. she fits the bill for new and a fresh face and in a lot of ways she is getting attacked more not from republicans but from the left. first of all on gay marriage only a few years ago she was against gay marriage. and also they are attacking her because of the fact that she was rumored to be considered in the trump administration. steve: final person we are talking about and some of the things on her resume. julian castro former hud secretary under president obama and of course famously the mayor of san antonio, texas. >> he is only about 43 years old. former mayor. former hud secretary.
3:29 am
the other thing is to look at him. is he getting attacked more -- he is another one getting attacked from liberals calling him a light weight and somebody who is not up on policy issues. steve: all right. what is he interested in universal healthcare raise taxes on the rich which we heard the sound bite for and pathway to citizenship for people in the country illegally. >> higher taxes and amnesty for illegal aliens. again, one of the things you will see in the democratic primary. you worry if you are a democrat that they pick somebody who is too liberal and out of touch with the electorate. steve: that's what happens in primaries and then in the general they have to move to the middle. >> it is going to be a brutal primary for the democrats. steve: well, it's early. jim, thank you very much. >> always a pleasure, steve. steve: meanwhile, many in the media are going in a crazy frenzy mode over those reports that the fbi investigated president trump as perhaps a russian agent. >> deep damage control mode. >> like out of a movie.

3:35 am
dan you, good morning to you. >> good to see you all. i'm frequently mistaken for bon joe not because of my looks but because of my last name. steve: "new york times" had that wig story over the weekend. whether pump was the man temperature ran candidate. he was working for russia. president trump would not release the notes from his meetings with vladimir putin because there weren't any. this guy is just doing something behind the scenes that nobody can put their finger on. dap, what is he doing behind the scenes that nobody can put their finger? >address the "new york times" first. it's absolutely devastating but not to donald trump. if you read the story with clear eyes the story is devastating to the fbi and the department of justice, steve. read through the story and it's clear as day now that this investigation
3:36 am
counterintelligence investigation into donald trump appears to be motivated by political animus and just a general dislike of trump. that's the bombshell here. and now they are on the record admitting it one more thing about this "times" story too. this is important as well. remember, it's rod rosenstein's memo that's used to fire comey. the "times" report alleges that the firing of comey somehow initiated the ci investigation into trump. why didn't they look into rod rosenstein as well? i think the answer is obvious. this is nothing to do with russia. this was a personal hatred of donald trump and now they are on the record having admitted it. ainsley: the media and democrats were reacting to the story. watch this and we will get your reaction? >> this bombshell "new york times" report. >> bombshell breaking news. >> it is indied a bombshell. >> this is very explosive. >> they were in deep damage control mode. >> like out of a movie. >> the president been turned, basically. >> the tentacles are now leading to the top. now it's the president of the united states of
3:37 am
america. steve: okay. so it's a bombshell. what do you make of the fact that the president didn't have any note takers when it came time to sit down with vladimir putin? >> >> i don't know why anyone is surprised by this either. the president's administration has been victimized by series of per neighbors leaks and some cases mike flynn criminal leaks and investigation into all of his dealings with russia. steve, if that was accompanied by a story about the president's, you know, passive behavior towards russia, basically accommodating russia, i would say all right, maybe there is something there. remember it's the president whether you agreed with the policy or not who sold lethal arms to ukraine defense against russia, expanded the imagin magnitsky a. the president's actions against russia do not meet any of the criteria for someone accommodating russia at all. the fact that there was no note taker to avoid leaks, why is this a story only
3:38 am
with president trump. where was the story about president obama and all of his illicit dealings with iran? note taker? they didn't even acknowledge the meetings existed. forget about a note taker. again, it's just this -- brian: we never would have found out about the money if it wasn't for iranian television. the piles of cash. the president, you know, has not been critical of vladimir putin. almost said nothing. his actions, for example, he came down on western europe for being attached to his natural gas pipeline and called tha out angela merkel for doing it he took some of his langage and a way he has talked positively about vladimir putin and they said well, if we are curious about -- if he, indeed, an asset. they are letting that play into that narrative. if you look at all the people involved, they have been exposed. peter strzok has been exposed. lisa page has been exposed. andy mccabe fired. fired by his own fbi. all those people were basically had a political agenda it doesn't put down the rest of the fbi.
3:39 am
but, let me ask you. this in the big picture, there was talk over the weekend from chris christie and even jonathan karl of abc that the word is this mueller probe is not going to be explosive. underperform in terms of taking down the president. is that a sense of what you hear that's happening and could that be the reason why some of these explosive stories are being written to get people alarmed? >> this has been the line of attack i have been taking on this from the start. having studied this case from the beginning, it's pretty clear to me somebody is trying to get ahead of a piece of information here. whether as it's you just mentioned, brian, a lackluster mueller report or ig report that points to serious fbi malfeasance in this case, it's clear to me somebody is trying to get ahead of the narrative. this worries me, guys. having been a former federal agent, when you put the handcuffs on someone, it's tough. it really is you are taking
3:40 am

us, doesn't cost as much to fill up the car. >> a boost. a shot in the arm for the economy. everybody can see it on a daily basis. you drive past the gas station and there's the sign and it's dropped another couple of cents. in fact the price of gas has fallen almost every single day for the last three months. steve: what's going on? >> we're down 60 cents per gallon in three months. what's going on, this is very simple. president trump has deregulated energy in the united states and american technology has allowed to us dominate the energy market and produce a great deal more oil. america is now producing over 11 million barrels of oil a day, massive supply. therefore, when it's refined gasoline the price of gasoline comes down. steve: supply and demand. >> really that simple no. question about it it's the result of american technology called fracking. you've heard that expression. that's allowed to us produce a whole lot more oil than we did in the past and that is driving the price down and
3:48 am
that is clearly helping the trump growth economy. brian: let's just expand that guess who benefits when the price of gas and oil go up. russia and iran and a lot of those enemy nations in that region. so that is their economy. and when that goes down, they suffer. >> iranians by the way just recently removed the last four zeros of the value of their currency against the dollar. that's because they have rampant run away inflation. 110,000 reals to $1. last three digits to make it more manageable. that's a sign of gross inflation that's because of their economy is in terrible shape because of the drop in the price of oil. ainsley: there were regulations against fracking. the president removed those regulations and more people are allowed to frac here we have more oil and prices go down? >> that's pretty much it. yes. the president has made it easier to go after the oil that we have got in our territory. and made us energy

3:54 am
one of our normal calls we get. we do go to a lot of house fires, structure fires in toledo unfortunately. before we arrived on scene, our incident commander deemed the structure unsafe for firefighter operations. so, at that point it became a defensive fire. so, breathed a little bit of sigh of relief with that knowing that there weren't going to be any firefighters inside in danger. at that point we just throw water on the structure from the outside and try to keep surrounding structures from catching fire. and that's what we were in the process of doing when i had looked up and i was helping a rookie showing him how to properly throw a stream, a fire stream and just spray water. and looked up and i saw the flag waving with the flames burning behind it. and that kind of set off a little bell in the back of my head, hey, that's not right. so, i just -- i walked up to
3:55 am
the porch and i took the flag down and set it on the bumper of our ladder truck to keep it from burning up. because i knew we were going to do a controlled burn and let the structure burn down safely. so i didn't want the flag to go up with it. ainsley: the video is very touching because you couldn't save his house. i'm sure the people who lived there worked their whole lives to put that together and, you know, provide a roof for their family. that's so sad to see. so touching to see you as a veteran walking away from the home and saving the flag. what did the people who live there have to say about it? >> i don't usually get a lot of feedback from people we deal with. it's just the way the cards fall. i did not get a chance to speak with the homeowner, unfortunately. but it's kind of been a whirlwind here the past few days. i'm sure i will be speaking with him some time in the future. ainsley: i'm sure he would want to meet you, i understand is he a veteran as well. what does the flag mean to
3:56 am
you? why did you do that? >> it does mean a lot to me. ever since i was a kid. it's always-i think it starts with the the memories of my father and grandfather and uncles seeing pictures of them in their dress uniforms. i have always been inspired to serve and join the military and give something back to the country for the freedoms that we have. and to me the flag is a symbol of a lot of the freedoms we enjoy. and sometimes take for granted. and deep down inside it means something to me. and like i said, that flag is a representation of that feeling i have. so, i wouldn't want to just let it go to waste. ainsley: alan, thank you so much for your service and for saving that flag. you are a good man. we appreciate you being here. >> thank you very much. it's good to be here. ainsley: great. well, she lost the race for governor in the state of georgia and now democrat stacey abrams has a radical

4:06 am
vanity project. he is keeping a campaign promise. a lot of people across this country wanted him to do it. now he is doing it and that, perhaps, is why the democrats are calling it a vanity project because it's all about him. it's not. it's about a lot of people across the country who would like to see better border security. brian: i will say this. people want to know how is this going to end? one thing the democrats are counting on is that the republican senate will break because murkowski, collins, gardner have all weighed in and said i hope we can reopen the government and keep on talking keep in mind 22 republican senators up for re-election and 12 democratic senators. joni ernst, exposed as well as martha mcsally just appointed as well as senator perdue. ainsley: senator lindsey graham says i thinks the president would support daca protections if he got some funding for the wall. he thinks that could be the way that they could negotiate. steve: also, apparently there is an axios story that's been ricocheting

eating a healthy diet versus fast food all the time or getting the right amount of activity. some of this stuff is surprising. if you don't care of the surprising items. your aging starts to accelerating. oprah and i started a company called share care. survival. insurance companies are using this now it's more accurate than your chronological age in predicting how long you will live. a couple surprising ones. high blood pressure northbound one. solid streaking up on there doesn't just affect your insides. it literally causes wrinkles. steve: what if you are taking medicine for it does it offset it? >> offsets to a large extent. not completely better to not have high blood pressure. major stressors. divorce; major cause is financial. big insurance companies get involved because they realize if i can get you not to have financial stress you will live longer i can sell you better insurance policies.
4:27 am
beginning to change the very fabric of how we do business. janice: how about hereditary? >> by the time 50 1/3 of how you age genetic. two thirds is lif lifestyle. you don't look like brian by accident. he workers at it. brian: thank you. >> play soccer in high school. works when you do the right things. go back to college reunion. facebook shows that to you beautifully. exintern daughter daphne. harvard, princeton. second ones to get facebook. they all have those pictures. they are doing this exact same exercise you start to see a difference between college graduation and now. if you are 40 versus 50. that difference begins to accelerate if you don't care of basic real age determiners. >> i'm 48. can i start now? >> yes it pays off for when you are older. cigarette smoking is a good example. you will lose 8 years of your life if you smoke. however, when you stop smoking, within five years, that risk goes almost to
4:28 am
nothing. look at that. that's a good example. >> some of it we can't control talking about genetics and hereditary things. what can we control outside of smoking, drinking? is it sleep? is it diet? steve: there you are 10 years ago. jillian: i was a very blond. janice: i did the reverse i went blonde. >> places on the planet where people live a lot longer age to 100 than most of the rest of the places. build communities where people tend to be healthy. the smartest thing can you do is have a social connection not be lonely biggest epidemic in america now is loneliness and be with people who are healthy. if you are overweight person and you hang with thin people. you will lose weight. if you live in a community where people support each other, through big stresses, especially, can you weather the stresses. that's what's allowed humanity to survive. the safety net of our society has always been each other. we forget that. then we begin to age rapidly. steve: what you are saying
4:29 am
is everybody has chronological age. real age whe which have helped develop over the last couple decades can you change your real age. >> developed at the cleveland clinic. well-established. i mentioned earlier used by insurance companies to predict your mortality. it's that powerful. take the test it will let you know what really matter. listen,. brian: where do you take the test. >> it's free. go to share care. download the app. super easy. already 30 million americans use it already. take advantage of that biggest message it gives you is what really matters. if you give up meat you will live a few months longer. if you give up cigarettes it's 8 years longer. focus on the big stuff. janice: be happy. >> happiness is critical. how you find happiness, purpose and meaning. all these blue zone folks teach you that and being in community of folks like minded like you. pick the right tribe. pick the people that you can get along with and identify with you.
4:30 am
this is a big reason why we have this in america right now. we are uncomfortable talking about that reality. but have you got to find people that connect with you and that's a two-way street. brian: social media you might think it brings people together. in many cases it brings people apart because they don't have any real relationships anymore. they don't have to interact like they used to to get them. >> something more powerful than looking about somebody in the eye that you care about and we each cook together. if you look at and connect it means something. that's the human connection. our free frontal cortex, our brains grew the size they are not to hunting you need a walnut size brain to go hunting. i can tell you feeling good, are you aging well? physical beauty is a barometer. i can tell if i want to mate with you. partner with you, i do trust you? that's about our brains connecting. brian: we should use more tribes. steve: we would love to see your social media pictures do. a split screen for us if you

4:36 am
ainsley: like vanity project. >> or do they have to have someone hand them the script it's amazing to me. brian: you have the "new york times" story opened up and then "the washington post" the next day. they talked about -- the fbi opened up an inquiry as to whether president trump was secretly working on behalf of russia. hey, russia, if you are listening, i want hillary clinton's 30,000 emails and because he made that statement to lester holt that he fired james comey to get the heat off of the russia investigation, but if you listen to the rest of the interview, he said i know by firing comey, it's actually going to heat up and could make things worse. they listed all these things as if they are new revelations. i thought i was reading a different article, governor. >> well, what scares me the most is that the fbi can decide on its own to go and investigate a duly elected president of the united states and just decide to go after him because they want to. guys, i'm going to tell you something, this is incredibly damaging to the way our constitutional
4:37 am
republic is supposed to work. and for me there was a bombshell. it wasn't that president trump made a joke about hillary's 30,000 emails. what is a bombshell is that you have the highest law enforcement agency in the country that decides to go after on a clandestined investigation the president of the united states. tell me what do you think would be the reaction if the fbi had decided to investigate barack obama, bill clinton or anybody else for that matter just because they had heard something based on rumor. this is really really scary stuff if you stop and think about it. ainsley: it doesn't change anything because, still, no collusion no, collusion. we keep hearing. now, chris christie was asked about it over the weekend. and he said the president should use this. he should embrace the story. he said the fbi acted in a rogue manner and overstepping. the president should tweet about the failing "new york times." how insulted he is and he says that the president should say this is what i have been saying all along. he should use it in his fair.
4:38 am
do you agree with that? >> i absolutely do. i think, you know, at some point, somebody has got to take a good dyson vacuum clean tore go over to the fbi and clean out the leadership because there is something. brian: they are being cleaned out. governor, they have been cleaned out. >> well, there needs to be then accountability for those who are being cleaned out and there are still some there that shouldn't be. the rank and file deserve better leadership than this. there are good people in the fbi. good, hard-working people of integrity that are disgusted with what's happened to their agency that they committed themselves to. and they deserve better leadership. and i'm really hoping that there will be people truly held accountable. not just fired, but i'm talking about truly held accountable. and some need to be prosecuted for using their positions as a political weapon against the -- steve: let's see if the ig or goj do anything about that. don't hold your breath. brian: i have one thing to add. jonathan karl who is not a
4:39 am
front to the president for the most part reported on sunday what he is getting from people in and around the mueller investigation it's almost certainly going to be anti-climate particular he says the "new york times" reporting that mueller -- the "new york times" reporting there is no sign that mueller is following that lead at all. mueller's investigation doesn't show any collusion -- will not show any collusion or coordination with russia or any knowledge of that. so, can you imagine if the mueller report comes out and it's anti-climate particular, do you think that maybe the media is getting word of that and beginning to start their own? >> well, i think that's part of it, brian. look at donald trump's life in the greater context. this is a man who has been a business guy. he has made money all over the world. but there is no indication ever that he has even thought about betraying his country. what they are accusing him of. what they are saying they are investigating is something that is of the most monumental kind of crime that a person would do
4:40 am
to betray one's country. there is no indication donald trump does anything other than truly love this great nation of ours. and is fighting to make it better. and the very notion that these people are accusing him of something like that is, to me, beyond outrageous. and i hope that there will be some, again, i'm going to use the word accountability for not only the people in the fbi. i would love to see some accountability in the news media about the way that they have lied about this president, lied about his motives. lied about what he has done and not told the story of the things that he has accomplished that have made america great again. to borrow a phrase that i heard somewhere, i'm not sure where. it just popped into my head. steve: all right. well, let's see where those fact checkers are when that comes out. all right, governor mike mike huckabee, always a pleasure. panhandle of florida. ainsley: thank you. >> great to be with you guys. take care. steve: thank you, sir. ainsley: let's hand it over to jillian who has headlines

brian: all right. president trump is putting the heat on democrats this morning as the shutdown enters day 24. all-time record. moments ago we tweeted this. i have been waiting all weekend, democrats must get to work now. border must be secured. nancy and cryin' chuck can end the shutdown in 15 minutes at this point it has become their and the democrats' fault. as dems refuse to budge on border funding, border patrol agents working overanytime it the rio grande valley sector where 40% of all apprehensions last year occurred. over 162,000 in total. this region is where our next guest lives and her life has been affected. she is the daughter of two furloughed border patrol federal workers. one is a border patrol agent and the other works with the va says president trump has her family's full support during the shutdown.
4:48 am
that daughter tori roberts joins us now. tori, the shutdown, you are still behind it even though it's hurting your family personally, why? >> good morning, mr. kilmeade. yes, i am still behind the shutdown because i do believe that a border wall will help us tremendously here at home. i think that mr. president trump is staying strong and that's a good thing to show the democrats how much we need that wall. brian: tori, what has your dad said about the border? what makes you think it's such a crisis? >> not just what my dad has said but what i have seen myself. i have noticed that there are illegal immigrants just in our streets, in our school system, even in offices and working places and that's not right because many of them are on welfare and we are the taxpayers who are paying for it. brian: so we have 8 in 10 democrats say they don't want the wall and they don't see this as a crisis. nine in 10 republicans see it the opposite way. how do you explain the difference? >> i think the democrats right now, i'm sorry to say, this but they are a bit confused. as we all have seen the
4:49 am
clips of them saying the wall is good and they supported it when obama was here. we have part of obama's law here in brownsville nearby city. i don't understand why democrats are flip flopping on this topic. the wall is there. it just needs to be expanded and built higher and better. but i think they are just trying to blank at the jump right now. brian: i understand your mom works at the va and dad works for border patrol. both are not being able to get a paycheck yet. the money is going to come but not yet. how is it affecting you guys? >> it's affecting us kind of tightly. my mom always tells me we're be careful with your money and don't spend it don't go out with your friends as much. it's hard. it will be okay. it's not that big of a deal. we will be able to make it we have savings. it's all good as long as we just take care and don't spend on anything major. brian: they are still going to work, right? >> yes, of course, they are going to work every day and they are happy to go to work

because they know they are making a difference for our country. brian: tori, have you seen the difference in your schools from illegal immigration in your area? has that really shown up in your schools? >> i have noticed in my school a few bad influences have come into town. different ways of getting items that students should not be a part of. even on social media people will be posting illegal things that students my age should not be seeing? so i really have seen difference in my school as well. brian: tori, i'm not going to tell what you to do for a living, i will say this. i'm thinking political science, running for office at some point. i know you have some time to make a decision. tell your parents thanks so much and thanks for joining us this morning. tori. >> thank you, thank you, mr. kilmeade. brian: all right. come up straight ahead. we change gear as little bit. counselor to the president kellyanne conway here live at the top of the hour to talk about everything white house-related. and it's the question on every football fan's mind this morning. why is tom brady sideline

5:03 am
fbi who are no longer there because they were fired and worse. some of them were deemed to be leaking and lying texting each other obviously with their tremendous biases against this president. i think it confirms what he said all along about some of those rogue actors, not the 35,000 rank-and-file women of the fbi who go to work do a fabulous job every day. also i think the headline could have aid, what so many of these stories could have said, and never do, investigation opened up, no fruit came of it. nothing came of it. that is the really the important part of this, is that 2 1/2 years into this and millions and millions of dollars, we're yet to see proof of any collusion. i ran the campaign successful part of it at the end. i never talked to anybody in moscow. i talked to people in mechanic lanburg, north carolina and michigan. steve: this came out yesterday, trump concealed details of face-to-face encounters with
5:04 am
putin from senior officials in the administration. i was reading kellyanne, in "the wall street journal" this morning, in the putin meeting in germany 2017, the president wanted to reduce the chance of leaks, so didn't have any note-takers aside from i believe rex tillerson who might have taken notes and passed word along. >> apart from, what has been printed i will tell you that was a time where there were tremendous leaks including from when the president would have meetings in the oval office. i can recall early on two calls with foreign leaders, i believe mexico and australia leaked contents immediately. there was great suspicion some people were obviously leaking this but i also am just amazed in this reporting people fail to mention other facts which is that unlike president obama and other administrations this president has been very tough on russia. he expelled 60 russians from this country, closed two
5:05 am
consulates. treasury put fresh new sanctions on russia. the president of course is selling, america is exporting energy to our eastern european allies that certainly hurts russia and not once but twice when assad gassed his own people in syria, children gasping for the last breath the president took real tear action. unlike the person he beat with the silly dollar store red plastic button, he is not trying to do a phony reset on a stage at a podium. he is trying to form good, positive, working relationships with leaders all around the world where we think we can work on big issues together. at the same time pushing back with sanctions and expulsions when necessary. brian: kellyanne, no secret he met with kim jong-un in private, one-on-one. he met with president xi, one-on-one. he met with president modi with india, one-on-one. he always like to do it with one-on-one setting.
5:06 am
adam schiff will look to subpoena the note taker, interpreter, to find out what took place when the president was meeting with vladmir putin. will the president push back on that. >> i haven't discussed that with the president. i assume the democrats stop shutting down the government, funding the government with border security to keep us safe they will subpoena any number of people. they have to be careful generally, if you read a lot of polls, listen to people across this country, there are a heck of a lot less interested in investigations indictment, impeachment talk, than they are making sure their paychecks are protected making sure this economic boom and deregulation boom and this trade boom under this president continue. one other thing i would note, just this morning on different network, senator chris coons said he doesn't see president is hiding something. he said separately in different
5:07 am
interview a few days ago, remarkably he thinks barrier would work, and barrier or wall is not immoral. he is pushing back as are many other democrats privately and publicly on speaker pelosi's claim that walls are immoral. you have a lot of democrats out there making joyful noises, reinforces barriers in the southern border or adding to them. brian: maybe seeds of a deal. >> that would be great. we showed up to work today. we'll negotiate with anyone. by the way if democrats would like some kind of briefing akin to the one president had with the cameras in the room on friday, it was remarkable to hear from the people on the ground, supervisor of san diego came in here, she said walls work in san diego. 92% reduction in illegal crossings over the decades. yuma. brian: arizona, tucson, arizona, el paso, texas, these walls work. we heard from people of fact, pastors that lead congregations,
5:08 am
we heard from customs border patrol, dhs. something else democratic senator chris coons said, he said that is what dhs says we need. that is important. this is not idea from president trump or vice president pence. this is the brave men and women at dhs, customs and border patrol tell us they need to do their job. if pelosi, schumer, want to come here for briefing with those men and women we can arrange that. they can hear directly from people on the ground. they can tell us what they need. what is hard to understand 300 americans die from heroin overdoses every single week in this country. brian: having said all that, having said all that, with the democrats partying in puerto rico rather than staying here. abc poll, 53% blame the president and republicans for the shutdown. what is your reaction, what is the president's reaction? >> we'll not talk about media polls. i'm digging into them for 2020. on this one not who is to blame,
5:09 am
how can we get border security and reopen the government. the reason i say that is, because people are also, surprised only 53%, since 95% of the media coverage tells people the answer to that question, becomes almost like a quiz question. so that is one thing. the other thing is, that after the, after the house did its job and passed $5.7 billion in border security funding before christmas, the senate just had to do its job. mr. schumer needs to find those eight or nine, 10, democratic votes to get us to 60 votes. leader mcconnell will put it on the president's desk. the democrats are failing to fund dhs as a way that dhs wants to be funded. this is not just about the barrier. let's's be honest here. we have 800,000 case backlog in immigration cases this increases number of immigration judges.
5:10 am
increases personnel at the border, more protection, meet humanitarian need. there is a lot in the package that needs to be funded. brian: what will happen now? what will break this deadlock? are you just waiting for the democrats approach you? will you reach out to chris coons or joe manchin, to some of the moderate voices to push back on leadership? ainsley: before you answer that, kellyanne, senator lindsey graham indicate ad emergency declaration would be last resort. he is urging the president to open the government short period of time for three weeks so they can all figure it out. any of those a possibility? >> i've been to some of those meetings where that has been discussed. the president said to speaker pelosi last week, we were here, they came back, okay, if i reopen it for 30 days could we work on the wall, she said no. he said good-bye. they totally mischaracterized the way he handled that in tone and content. i was sitting right there. the bottom line is this, they said no. he put it on the table. he asked her, okay if we reopen
5:11 am

5:26 am
to you. >> good morning. steve: start at the beginning. who is ed buck? >> ed buck is a major donor to the california democratic party as well as a lot of its elected members. he has given lots and lots of money. he is a well-known animal rights activist as lgbt activist. steve: you, jasmine, have been sounding the alarm, i think about six months ago, essentially said don't be surprised if something like what happened to jamil moore happens again. lo and behold sadly it happened again. >> yes, we told them in july of 2017 after numerous young men contacted me and told me about the very same sort of experiences jamil moore had written about his journal. that there was a pattern this man was a predator. if they didn't stop him, there would be another person that would die inside of ed buck's
5:27 am
house. six months after our district attorney, jackie lacy declined to prosecute ed buck, jamil moore, we have timothy dean who was found dead. steve: indeed. you've been doing great reporting on this. >> thank you. steve: in fact after jamil moore died you became friends with some his friends and you were able to look at journal that detailed some of the things allegedly mr. buck had done. >> right. so when jamil passed away his journal was on him. for whatever reason the sheriff's detectives did not look through his belongings. when his belongings were collected from the morgue, we have had the journal. in the journal he detailed how ed buck hooked him on crystal meth. had given him his first injection of crystal meth. such a painful, painful journal, i'm sure the young man never thought the world would ever read. he told us exactly what happened to him. after that journal was published, after i published
5:28 am
that, that is when the sheriff's department decided to open a homicide investigation. a lot of evidence from ed buck's apartment was already destroyed and gone. steve: with ed buck and current, the death they're investigating right now, regarding 55-year-old timothy dean, here is the statement from mr. buck's attorney on the death. listen to this, jasmine. >> the individual came over. had already been partying apparently had already taken some substances. this is a situation where mr. buck has had long-time friends who unfortunately do not handle their life well. steve: when you hear him say that what do you think? >> he is getting paid to say that. if i was getting paid i would be doing that job as well. the fact of the matter is, two black men died in this man's house of an overdose within 18 months. and that is not a coincidence. like i said, we have nearly a dozen young men who have come forward who are sharing their
5:29 am
stories with detectives, who have spoken to me. this is a pattern. this is a practice with ed buck. it is very clear if he is not stopped there will be a third body. steve: you have been a democratic activist for a while. you worked on capitol hill. you worked in california politics. this is very upsetting to you personally. why, regarding the democratic party? >> because over 77% of black people in california vote democratic. we vote for democrats. it is a shame that when something like this happens, when you have the chair of your state party, who at the time was eric baumann, very good friends with ed buck, was willing to turn a blind eye, as well as instruct others not to speak on it, as a black woman, as a black democrat, i expect more from my party. that is not the type of investment black people expect from democrats, when we're being killed, when we're being hurt and we're being harmed, we expect the democratic party to stand up for what is is right. if it was someone, white, a
5:30 am
white gay man, i feel like the democratic party would take a completely different position. because these are young black gay men, who are largely invisible i feel like my party feels like they're not worth it, that is absolutely wrong. steve: well, the law enforcement out in california are looking into the cause of death for mr. timothy dean. let's see what happens with that. thank you very much for joining us today from los angeles. all right. congress is about to return to work on day 24 of the partial government shutdown, but senator bob men men dead and other democrats are busy enjoying sunshine on the beach. we're in puerto rico this morning. michelle malkin is fired up about that story. she is live next. also a sibling rivalry started very early in one family now going viral. ♪

retreat. rob? reporter: guys. you have to wonder what bob menendez thinks about that picture being up on tv all day long. 30 democrats, more than 30 democrats and their families are here. they have been posted up since friday, all weekend at this very nice hotel behind me here in san juan. their families are with them. more than 100 people were flown private down here on a private charter down here to do this. this is a winter retreat they're calling it, highlight some issues puerto rico is having. it was put on by a democrat political action committee. they're trying to basically lobby for more money and more support for the island territory. the problems with puerto rico from the debt they have had number of years, then the hurricanes, two of them, maria was the really bad one in september of 2017, decimated the island, caused billions of doll landing. today, more of the same. a latino political action committee will lobby members for a while. they have meetings with local

5:37 am
has been through christmas. brian: snowed in. pete: here the democrats down at the luxury resort having a great time. >> it is an understatement to say that the optics are less than optimal here. republican strategists couldn't write a better contrast between where the president is and what he has been doing, working overtime, going down to the border, to underscore the national crisis that has been ongoing for decades. and then you have the so-called party of the people, partying for the people, playing beach blanket bingo with corporate lobbyists after being shipped there on private charter. could somebody please document the carbon footprint that that alone has implemented? steve: they had to take a private charter so they didn't about by the tsa people who weren't getting paid. >> good point, steve. i will say also, isn't it

5:40 am
has been wasting money on. or every highway and pork project named after robert byrd. the people don't want these things. they are vanity projects for big-spending democrats. but for once we have a president who says, you know what? the basic infrastructure and duty of government to make sure there are physical barriers on our border to keep us safe. no, we can't have that. we can't have that. and so, you know i'm thinking it would be nice for once if we had an infrastructure project that was built for the people, and not the politicians. steve: how quick is the president going to want to deal with democrats on a infrastructure after this? >> yeah. it is hard, it is really hard to deal with these beltway crap weasels who want to invest in everything except for the basic sovereignty of the country. i want to particularly call out dianne feinstein here. now the people are trying to switch arguments.

5:49 am
this rage against donald trump. i mean it is very hard to sort of want to make a deal with donald trump. like dealing with the devil for democrats. so what do they do? they want something so far off the charts that trump can't possibly be for it. it will galvanize young people who have a preference now for socialism over capitalism. but i think it's a destructive race. the difference now, they are serious. these are not ow lying ideas for the party. these are the party leaders themselves talking about open borders, no distinction between legal and illegal immigrants, free stuff for everybody, forever. this is, this is a new kind of democratic party. ainsley: some democrats saying they're even open to illegals getting a chance to vote. >> sure, sure. ainsley: how do they have so much support though? when you hear they will tax 70% of your paycheck if alexandria ocasio-cortez gets her way, how do they have so much support? that is a lot money giving back to the government? >> i think a lot of it is
