>> the deputy attorney general is expected to step down. did he announce it a month ago and going to step down in a few week. ainsley: departure comes bun one day after former fbi andrew mccabe smiled job to remove the president from office. steve: griff jenkins is live in our national bureau down behind the capitol. griff, after we saw "60 minutes" one of the two of them was lying because they both had different stories u griff: good morning, guys. in a moment i will get to that brian mentions we knew rosenstein planned to step down now we know officially he will leave by mid march. we have confirmation that the new attorney general william barr will replace rosenstein with this man. serving as deputy secretary of transportation. rosen served as office of management and bucket 2006 to 2009 under president george w. bush and before that he was general counsel
at the dot. the change comes amid the firestorm among mccabe's comments rosenstein considered using the 25th amendment to remove president trump and rosenstein was willing to wear a wire. president is responding over twitter. biggest abuse and scandal in our history and much worse than we thought. andrew member cake, fbi, admitted to plotting a coup, government overthrow, when he was serving in the fbi before he was fired for lying and leaking. treason. now, the doj has dismissed mccabe's claims some lawmakers on the hill are now hinting about hearings to learn more; we should get that announcement later in the week u guys. steve: griff jenkins in our nation's capital. lindsey graham is going to head up the judiciary, he wants to look into these claims. watch this. >> one of the most significant moments in american history if it's true. you had the acting hid of
the fbi talking to the deputy attorney general about replacing the president. so what i will do, oversight is part of my job. we do have checks and balances. so the congress will watch those who watch us. i will try to find out who was in these meetings and talk to awful them and figure out who is lying because somebody is lying. brian: for f mccabe to defend himself and if rosenstein shows up to defend himself outline the severity of the situation as they viewed it on president trump who just newly elected. they will do a preliminary mueller report before the mueller report because for them not to be indicted for lying to congress or having their book lisd on fiction instead of nonfiction james comey as well. sit there and say why they were so clear that the president of the united states was sold out to russia. ainsley: you know what's interesting? they were trying to oust the president. all three of them are now
ousted. rosenstein is gone, mccabe is gone and james comey is gone. the president was hitting twitter jed he was railing all of them. mccabe wouldn't go to the bathroom without approval from leaking james comey. rosenstein was part of a treasonous plot in a coup. steve: rosenstein has said i was just joking. if he goes before congress he will go i was joking. ainsley: wearing the wire u. brian: is he radio fiewtedding. ainsley: he said it was too risky to wear the wire. it wouldn't even pay the benefits. what are you going to catch the president saying? steve: sure, if you look at rosenstein's departure and directly tied to the "60 minutes" appearance. it has been assumed in washington, d.c. as soon as they got a new attorney general if he would get his person in there to oversee the mueller investigation, the a.g. is now overseeing it. rod had been taking a look at it let's see what happens with jeff rosen, currently at the department of transportation. could be sitting in rod's
chair promptly. ainsley: we all expected this. we knew states across the country were going to sue the president over national emergency. now there is a list of them. 16 states. three texas land owners and environmental group suing. shear a list of the states u. brian: list all democratic states out of maryland. maine, california, new york, delaware, hawaii, connecticut, illinois, maryland, michigan, minnesota, nevada, new jersey and new mexico sthovment worked on president's day and they got this lawsuit together. guess where they are filing it? in san francisco. friendly court. game on urge work your way up the ladder. ainsley: supreme court. steve: it could go up to the supreme court. ainsley: probably will. steve: one through the 2020 election. folks would love to have this as a binary choice. and this is what it all comes down to. do you think there is a real emergency on our southern border in the president has made it very clear there is a humanitarian crisis down there. there's a problem with the drugs u the 16 states essentially they want an injunction to prevent the
president from taking the money to build the wall. in addition suing the president, they sued the department of defense, the treasury, interior, dhs and the senior officials in each of those departments. ainsley: do you know what's interesting? the president wanted 5.7 billion. he got 1.4 billion. but if this emergency order does go through, and it does hit the supreme court, and you have conservative justices that vote for the president, and vote on his side. 6.7 billion beyond what he ha is already authorized. brian: up at 8 billion. going to be able to get a lot done. that's over 100 miles. they say barack obama did 133. president bush 43 did 500, close to 600 miles. this president will do a bigger, better fence and do a lot of other styled steel, the steel slats. steve: right. brian: quick thing to bring up the president did not help his case on friday when he came out and said did i not need to do. this for him not to write
down the legalese to say is a mistake. to come out there without notes and this impactful legally was a mistake. steve: he felt that as chief administrator, the commander-in-chief he had the right to do that. >> for him to say i don't need to do this goes in the face of it's an emergency. steve: i have seen people say that legal opinion. according to the lawsuit. brian: said it again u. steve: exactly. according to the lawsuit, there is no national emergency. the federal government's own data will prove that there is no emergency because the border patrol date that te'o shows that entries are near 45-year low. this is a misuse of presidential power. why is he doing it if it's not an emergency? of course, the president has made the case over the last two months it is an emergency. brian: you go there and feel the same wait a minute mike is a navy seal, featured on "60 minutes" buff. he has a podcast, very successful mike drop and he asked lara logan if he could come over and interview her.
they met on "60 minutes" before. great podcast u making news. lara logan is a very respected war journalist at cbs. let's listen. >> most journalists are left or liberal or democrat or whatever word you want to give it how do you know you are being lied to? how do you know you are being manipulated? how do you know there is something not right with the coverage? when they simplify it all and there is no gray. it's all one way. well, life isn't like that. if it doesn't match real life, it's probably not -- something is wrong, right? so, for example, you know, all the coverage on trump all the time is negative. there is nothing -- there is nothing -- no mitigating policy or event or anything that has happened since he was elected that is out
there in the media that you can read about, right? that tells you that's distortion of the way things go in real life. because the media has always been historically always been left-leaning u we have abandoned our pretense or at least the effort to be objective today. steve: right. what makes this interview on this podcast which runs about two hours so extraordinary, is she a journalist from the mainstream media. and she is saying the mainstream media leans left u it was blistering, unsensorred. an attack on liberal bias. she says it's like propaganda press no, interest in fairness. she says everywhere around the world the media is mostly liberal. not just in the united states. she says 85% of the journalists are registered democrats. that's a fact. and then she jokes that the other 14% is too lazy to register and maybe 1% is on the right. she also said me talking
right now, professional suicide. ainsley: she said well, we have to see a lot of people agree with her about that. steve: 85% doesn't. ainsley: she gave a great example. when you go to israel there is the wailing wall and small section for women to pray. the rest of the entire wall is for men to pray. that's what the media is like. few media outlets like fox where the women go to pray the rest is where the men go to pray. biased. brian: she sat and talked about her entire career. she has won respect on both sides of the aisle. especially in the military community. she is fearless. and she is honest and fair. ainsley: she is a good journalist. not a republican or democrat. "60 minutes" correspondent. she will not vote in the united states because the united states is too polarized. what do you think? 6:12 in new york city and in the meantime jillian joins us. jillian: good morning. we are following a story out
of california. let's start with this. first responders saved 1u6 people stranded on amusement park ride overnight. passengers including children and a baby left hanging in go an gone dough gonr water. it came to a sudden stop after a strong gust of wind tripped a circuit breaker. the ride will be inspected before it is reopened. supreme court justice ruth bader ginsburg expected to return to the bench today. 85-year-old would hear arguments for the first time since having surgery to remove cancer in her lungs in december. before her recent absences quincyburg had never missed oral argument since being confirmed in 1993. a second woman accusing virginia's lieutenant governor of sexual assault makes a call for open hearings. >> justin fairfax's alleged victim said she is frustrated by his calls for an fbi probe.

>> ha, ha, and ha. there isn't a national emergency on our border. >> there is no crisis there. i mean, there is a crisis on the planet if you want to talk about climate change. >> the national emergency is trump. brian: all right. hundreds of presidents staged against trump and right here in new york city. ainsley: rob schmitt wasn't down there to talk to some of the folks. rob: there was like 200 of these protests yesterday all over the country. this one maybe 150, 1200 people at it. and now you have 16 states filing lawsuit and a number of organizations. come out of wood works. everyone wants to get on this lawsuit. we went to talk to people that actually gathered yesterday on a holiday in the cold and see what really brought them out there. take a look. >> i think we should have an open border. >> an open border? >> yeah. a lot of economists will say if you open up the borders and then you start having a lot of social welfare, you will have an expense like have you never known. >> yeah. that's true.
i'm not really concerned about it. and it's hard for me to take arguments from the right about the national debt seriously. i mean, we don't need a wall. to me that's like $5 billion that could be spent on things that could make much more substantive change. rob: is he socialism and anti-border. i told him well, you could never afford that it's not really plausible. he didn't seem to mind. he made good points u the republicans are running up the deficit as fast as anybody else at this point. brian: 2 trillion since took over. rob: everybody is spending money good way to get votes. you go to something like this. expecting to see full blown leftist u and the amount of moderate democrats that we met there people that said we do need borders. we do want barriers but we don't want the wall actually surprised me. steve: was it of your opinion that they had any inkling that there could be a crisis at our southern border? is it a crisis that the human trafficking, the drugs? things like that. rob: first thing most of them would say just to
actually laugh that there is a crisis at the southern border. most of these people haven't actually seen the southern border. if you bring up things like the human trafficking and things done to woman and risks they say that the administration ♪ too long anything to stop that. and they say those things were happening before. steve: wouldn't the wall stop it? rob: that's what the argument. ainsley: older? younger? rob: that was exactly the strangest thing was the age of this demonstration. i would say 55 was the average age. it was a much older crowd. steve: not a college crowd. rob: didn't see a lot of kids at all and it was cold. brian: they were off yesterday. rob: most of them had the day off. different kind of crowd. there has been so much protesting and so good at protesting. this is what the left does. steve: move on.org one of the groups that organized it all right, rob. thank you much. brian: see new an hour. elizabeth warren says when she was a kid, minimum wage

supposed to help? joining me now is star parker founder and president for the center of urban renewal and education. thank you for being with us. >> you are welcome. good morning. ainsley: look at minimum wage then when she was younger. 1961. it was a 1.15 an hour. now is $7.25 an hour. it's been like that since 2009, for a long time. and there is some efforts to change those laws is that enough back then in the 1960's to support a family of three? >> we know it was not. we are going to have a lot of fun this election cycle until the democrats decide which progressive they are going to choose to join against to run against donald trump to beat them. we can have this discussion about the benefits of socialism or capitalism again. everybody knows that $1 an hour you cannot support a family of three. why she was attempting to make that point is foolishness. this is our poverty in our society. it was a poverty then. it's poverty today. that's why most conservatives argue for full
family. that you take a minimal wage job when you are young. in fact, 50% of the people making minimum wage today are young, single. first rung. get, in work hard. they get another job. then they get a little bit more education. they get married and then they start a family. what's interesting on what senator warren is trying to do. now she is going after one of the other people groups within the democrat party. they have segregated and separate you had this country into all these little peep groups. now she is going after the momma and the baby. that single welfare population and it's just going to backfire on her once again. ainsley: are you saying the minimum wage job are to get you in the door and not there to raise a family. >> they are only not there to raise a family which is what a lot of people try to do. the reason they are trying to do that now because the government interjected itself in wages. wages person working and person offering a job. government should interject itself into the market of that. instead of people saying let me get in that first rung
and prove to this employer that i can do really good so that somebody else come work for them. what we have gone to the nanny state and said fix this for us. we should not even have a minimum wage. wages are flexible because threntsd is put on the table and somebody buys that talent. ainsley: what do you think about there are 20 states that want to change the minimum wage. they want to increase 7.25 up to $15. >> i think those states are at risk for the states that say to the businesses come on in here and create jobs. and you negotiate with our worker population pay them. competition is what changes wages. your hard pressed to even find minimum wage jobs in the country anymore because competitive labor forces offer higher wages for people. the business should set that wage and the business does set those wages. and states that interject themselves into that don't fair very well. you can look at seattle and washington state to see that. ainsley: all right, star

[cheers and applause] >> we, again, deliver a very simple message, america will never be a socialist country. >> president trump and the first lady, melania, addressing the crisis in venezuela, warning against dangers of socialism in miami yesterday. what do the voters think? steve: let's talk to todd piro. we have sent him down to the cozy corner in miami springs where is he talking to folks about the president and first lady in that area yesterday. >> hey, guys, good morning to you. yeah. what an emotional day yesterday. speaking with the individuals outside the trump speech about what socialism does to families and societies, take a listen. >> they talk about socialism
being the best thing for any type of government. but it's not. i came from venezuela. i love this country. i love what president trump is doing. >> as a person whose parents came from flee ago socialist country that came to this country looking for the american dream, it's kind of appalling that these democrats and liberals are calling for socialism. >> it doesn't work. that's why we want to see -- out. >> i was born in venezuela nothing is for free. you need to work to get what you want. >> i'm so glad that president trump said that we'll never have socialism here in the united states of america. todd: all right. so, with that, we just have a big announcement, 2020 contender now bernie sanders has announce you had the democratic socialist is going to throw his hat into the ring for president. a vietnam veteran. he lived in europe. grew up in europe. what do you think about the bernie announcement? >> i can't stop laughing.
todd: why? >> it's a gift. it's a gift to the republican party and trump that's all. todd: explain? >> well, they are so out of touch with reality. they are selling kool-aid. they have been doing tonight campuses for years. and it's spread out and utopian idea of everything is wonderful. i saw the results in europe and eastern europe. and you look in south america. you see cuba. you look at venezuela. people don't get it. they keep wanting to try to make it work. todd: as a veteran, let's talk about the wall. first of all, thank you for your service. second, you say why do we help all these other countries control their borders and not ours? >> we have american troops and there are 195 countries in the world. we have american troops and 150 of them. 75%. so why are we out there helping them protect their borders, their national identity and we can't protect our own? it doesn't make sense. it's illogical. todd: great answers.
parents are cuban immigrants. what do you think of the bernie announcement? >> send in the clowns. todd: wow. this table doesn't pull any punches. why do you say that? >> well, come on, there are a list of characters running. it's a socialist who's who? i think our president is going to do just fine. we love him. todd: you call socialism a failed concept, why? >> it goes against human nature? it has three very dark ingredients? it has jealousy, division, and hatred. sounds like a democrat party to me. todd: as the son of legal immigrants. when i asked you what is your argue 789 on the wall. you said to me why is there even an argument? why did you say that? >> there shouldn't be. it's our border. we should determine who comes in and our president is absolutely doing a great job. is he the people's president. todd: understood. you know, when you hold horses back because you want to get them all fired up and then you release them. that's renan and frank.
these are going to be up in the 7:00 hour. toss it back to you in new york. steve: looks like a great breakfast in miami. it's official. bernie sanders in an interview that airs this morning on vermont public radio announced that he is running for president. it's a lot different than the last time he ran for president. because back then, he was one of the underdogs. there is bernie up on capitol hill. when he ran against hillary clinton he was the underdog but now he enters the presidential race for 2020 as one of the top contenders along with joe biden. the two of them are leading in the polls. by the way, i have been told by people close to the biden campaign, joe biden is actually hiring campaign staff members. so he is in it as well. ainsley: we heard that about bernie sanders there were reports that he was filling top positions. he was looking for individuals. possibly chuck rocha. he political video. a video has not been released yet if there is one.
brian: he almost won iowa and new hampshire. questions on cnn being given to hillary clinton ahead of time. all the super delegates hillary clinton had before this whole thing started. just remember, there was no competition outside of hillary clinton last time around. you had governor o'malley who's invisible and some other marginal players. now you have a situation where have you already double figures of entries and a lot of which mirror socialist policies. look at his track record passed nothing. chairman of one committee he did zero for the v.a. he admitted it was a total crisis he presided over. ainsley: when he ran in 2016 it's a different environment now believe it or not. you have the socialist agenda. he is the one who started that and now it's gotten more and more popular. he was too liberal in 2016. steve: right. ainsley: the question would he be now? steve: a lot of people campaigning in new hampshire are trying to outbernie bernie. yesterday kamala harris was
asked about bernie sanders because he had won the big primary and she said up there four years ago and she said i'm not a democratic socialist. brian: she is not. that's the opposite of what bernie is. ainsley: go down to miami, jillian, they are all saying no to the 10e678. their parents lived there. brian: they all sat at that one table u. jillian: we will certainly see. the atf joining the search for thieves who swiped 79 guns from a hard ware store. surveillance showing the suspects tear through the arkansas shop, taking pictures, revolvers and pistols. there is a $5,000 reward for information leading to their arrest. hiker is rescued after getting trapped in quick sand. free the man in utah's zion national park. he says he is lucky to be alive. >> like black concrete and

senior judicial analyst and host of liberty file on fox nation judge andrew napolitano. >> you can't blame the president for being furious. his fury should be aimed at rod rosenstein whom he could fire with the stroke of a pen or a phone call. they are going to let him stay on for another month until his replacement is in place at the justice department. the reason is he staying on is the top two people in the doj are supposed to be senate confirmed and his replacement. very competent lawyer by the jail-time of jeff rosen, it will take about a month for the replacement to come in. they committed fireable offenses. thanks be to god i hated this amendment when it was answeenacted it permits a legal coup. rosenstein has denied this to the president and denied it in other forums. and mccabe says it happened. somebody is telling the truth and somebody is not.
senator graham thankfully and senate judiciary hear from both. brian: tie breaker is jim baker he testified behind closed doors not only did he bring it up but they even had two people that they believed would have been turning on the president. >> yes. brian: in order to complete the coup. sessions and john kelly. >> they actually counted heads in the cabinet. now, here's their defect. the way the 25th amendment is written, they must have the vice president with them,s who loyalty to the president is legendary and unshakeable thanks be to god. even if they had the entire. ainsley: he would become president. >> even if they had the entire cabinet the 25th amendment in this respect is fruitless without the agreement of the vice president. steve: ultimately it just shows at the highest levels of the department of justice and the fbi there seemed to be a bias against this man. >> and a willingness to do the most extreme thing the justice department has ever done. it's one thing for the doj to investigate a vice
president like agnew. but to manipulate the president of the united states out of office it's breath-taking, historic and you, of course, it didn't work. ainsley: they were trying to oust the president. but those three individuals are the ones that got ousted. >> yes. ainsley: comey, mccabe and rosenstein. >> i don't think comey was involved. at least he wasn't in the fbi at the time these conversations took place. brian: it was in response to comey's firing. >> some may say it was discussed before comey left we haven't heard any evidence of that. brian: here is the strongsest case. they have to sit there and tell lindsey graham's committee, judiciary committee, why they believe the president was an agent of russia. they will have a mini mueller trial. >> yes. brian: either in front or behind closed doors before mueller gives us his results. >> this is either going to be without credibility or have to reveal some things that mueller doesn't want revealed. steve: right. >> that's going to be up to senator graham and the judiciary committee if they do it if public or private. >> i'm against all these things in private. steve: depends on if they have a hearing before the
mueller result. >> yes. steve: thank you very much. >> a pleasure, guys. steve: fewer americans are doing things like going to church and volunteering. fueled some attacks by people on the left. next guest talked with people all across the country. that's exactly how president trump got elected. he will explain coming up next. ainsley: store employee harasses a teenage boy for wearing a maga hat. we will tell you what happened next. >> take off your hat because 14-year-old child said f you to my son. my son said nothing to him. did nothing. steven could only imaginem 24hr to trenjoying a spicy taco.burn, now, his world explodes with flavor. nexium 24hr stops acid before it starts for all-day all-night protection. can you imagine 24-hours without heartburn?

so in america today, because we're so secularized the church communities are really the ones that are standing out there as extra strong and support. steve: here's the problem lot as many people going to church. >> that's a big problem. a lot of reasons. one is modern technology. changes the way we interact and provides distractions. sit at home on sunday morning. another is that the left is chasing the church out of the public square. people like nancy pelosi, in n. my book she says i do my religion on sundays. you can't. religion is supposed to be out there and part of the community and part of the institution. institutions in america. that's what you need to connect you to other people to build a family. steve: how does that all connect with how donald trump was elected president? >> so, when trump said the american dream is dead. the elites did not buy it the suffering is real you know this a blue collar guy doesn't make as much money as his father. it's hard to form these
families. did i go around to the polices where american dream seemed dead and seemed alive. what i found in some of these places where it seemed dead it wasn't economics it was the loss of these institutions other politicians aren't out there to articulate that pain. it seemed alive in the elite circles. >> how do we turn it around? >> it has to happen on the local level. that's the thing. somebody like bernie sanders. steve: just declared is he running for president. >> he sees these problems. he thinks the central government will be the problem. it never will be. trump has started by stopping the war on religious institutions. really it's going to be up to all sorts of people. starting up a new little league and going to church and inviting friends. only way to turn it around and rebuild from the bottom up. little that maria to ans that used to connect people together. have to be rebuilt. steve: don't sit in your house go. outside and do something. all part of a brand new book alienated in america.

democratic party. he refuses to join the democratic party. he described himself as a democratic socialist when you look at his agenda universal healthcare and healthcare for all many other things that made bernie 2016 stabbed out. watch this. >> tuition-free. three months family and medical leave. living wage. 15 bucks an hour. >> healthcare is a right of all people, not a privilege. >> ideas are now your ideas because of your support. brian: medicare for all. single pair system. free college. anti-israel policy. it won him it almost took iowa. and then all of the sudden debbie wasserman schultz working behind the scenes cut his knees out along with
the super delegates required before bernie sanders who was actually. in. ainsley: vote for him. very liberal agenda. you heard what he is for. 2016 different race than 2020. looks like the country more and more people are supporting the socialist agenda. that's what you get request him when we asked the voters. we did a poll last week when the voters were asked who do you want? joe biden was number one and bernie sanders was number two. so far joe b biden hasn't gotten in the race it looks like bleanders do well. steve: biden and bernie sounds like they will be in it. they are the two candidates on the democratic side with the best name recognition four years later, 2016 bernie sanders was a real contrast to hillary clinton. now when you look at the things ran on. that's what everybody is running on it seems like. when it comes to medicare for all. harris, gillibrand, booker, warren, klobuchar all for that amy klobuchar who yesterday said she is not
for free tuition or everybody. ainsley: she wants the first two paid for like a community college she said she did support bernie on $15 an hour minimum wage. with bernie on that. just not free college business. brian: what about the timing? the timing of a socialist declaring for president one day after the president of the united states condemned socialism in miami and we look at venezuela as a case in point of what could happen to america with all our natural resources, with all our history like venezuela, much richer than venezuela. and all their oil resources they have gone into the toilet as a country they can't even stock their shelves with food that would be too expensive to buy anyway because of inflation. so, this is -- like look at me. if i'm a democrat. if i'm running the democratic committee, i would be outraged right now. he won't join my party, yet he wants my nomination. i say hit the road. in or out?
steve: they tried to create a law the dnc apparently that's not true. anyway out news this morning bernie is in it to win it. ainsley: what do you think kamala harris is saying right now? steve: bring it on. why not? more the merrier. big contrast there. a new report possible motive against actor jussi smollett. ainsley: comes as brothers once considered persons of interest are breaking silence born in nigeria from chicago. no plans to meet with police today again, matt the police want to meet with him. >> requested a follow-up interview with jussi smollett. as of 5:00 p.m. yesterday they did 23409 hear back from him. this was a holiday. they were giving him the benefit of the doubt. just j smollett's manager says is he going to continue to cooperate with detectives
if he does not. there is a chance they present this case to prosecutors. told during interrogation they rehearsed the attack with smollett. smollett was suspect set that a death threat him aweek prior with a maga return address did not garner more attention. proceeded with this elaborate alleged attack. smollett's attorney says anyone claiming jussi played a role in his own attack is lying. here is why smollett feels he was allegedly assaulted. why do you think you were targeted? >> i can just assume -- against 45. i come really hard against his administration. >> this morning, chicago police are not formally called smollett the suspect in this case. however, no longer calling him necessarily the victim. referring to him as the person who reported this
incident. brian, ainsley, steve? brian: wow, where does he go from here? thanks, matt, great work. people who immediately backed him are backing off. kamala harris won't comment on the smollett probe. we have a sound bite coming up later. ainsley: she did comment when it first happened. brian: condemning the attack calls an attack against humanity. she has since deleted that the question is, too. what was he getting at and what is he going to be charged? if you think about how the racial unrest in this country anti trump movement. not just anti trump hatred african-american, to say it was anti-gay attack and race attack and because i don't like trump. there could be widespread riots because of that. ainsley: comments on by the politicians weighed in. >> you the reason people
believed it because they wanted to believe it they believe donald trump is a racist and they believe racism remains a major problem in america. and you put those two together. voila, the story had legs. the question is why do so many people believe it? and the answer is they despise donald trump. donald trump is a racist. donald trump support racist. the not only racist also homophobic and people that engage in violence. they wanted to believe it and ran with it and now they are embarrassed. steve: there you go. there is a thread. reportedly, in the initial story that mr. smollett gave chicago police. they said something about imagine gaffe. make america great again. an article in so loan that says this. scholar matt serious some day maga hats will be shameful secrets like klan robes. a "the washington post" columnist. when he was speaking to salon, he said this: in a few generations from now, finding a maga hat in your
grandparents' closet would be your grandfather's or grand mother's face in one of those lunch counter photos harassing the black people who are trying to fight jim crow and win their equal human rights. he also says in that article, in salon, to wear donald trump's maga hat and other uniforms is an endorsement of everything he stands for. people who support donald trump need to be held morally accountable. and then that ties in with what happened in observe enter landon or aboutlandon eno. van shoes. >> walks in there wearing a make great again hat and is he offended by the employee who makes comments about it and uses profanity. the mother walks in, momma bear and defends her son. listen. >> what did you say to my
son? to my 14-year-old son? >> yeah. >> my son walks into your store. that gentleman first told him take off your hat. he said nothing to him. 14-year-old child. and then he said f you to my son. my son said nothing to him. did nothing. that is disrespectful. he did nothing. steve: apparently after the employee told the kid when he walked in. he said take off your maga cap. then he said f you to the kid. and then the mother said what did you say to my son my 14-year-old. he said back to her i'm sure he has heard it before. and she said where is the manager and that's how saw right there and that's the guy who fired the kid who said f you to the 14-year-old. unbelievable. vans by the way, their corporate office says the actions and comments from this employee is in contrast with our values and beliefs.

president trump was just down the street talking about the ills of socialism and this morning democratic socialist bernie sanders announces he is going to be running for the white house in 2020. so we have some amazing reaction to that. renan your dad was a political prisoner in cuba. you call socialism destructive. what do you call bernie sanders entering. >> socialism is destructive. bernie's vision for america is destructive as well. he almost got to be the frontrunner with hillary it didn't work out. i think they wanted someone younger. i don't think it's going to be a big fac factor. >> thank you for your service, sir. the son of immigrants. you say socialism does not work. your reaction to bernie? >> it's a failed experiment. never works. you know, in cuba and venezuela, example resounding. the thing about bernie he is upfront about his socialism. there is not going to be any surprises. i hope voters educated
themselves on the field. it doesn't allow this to come to fruition. todd: in an area we are in right now so many venezuelan americans. what do you think the reaction to bernie's announcement is going to be? >> almost laughable. great we love our president. adding candidates like bernie to the democratic ticket will only fortify his position it worries me after 2020. when he is done four more years. then what's going to happen? that's where my concern is. todd: thank you. peter spent 30 years in law enforcement has a very specific response. >> bernie sanders is a socialist he does not want to give us the tools we need. surplus military equipment and the weapons we need. todd: getting a call u. >> and in orlando, at the pulse bar. we are 49 people were
killed. the police used a military surplus vehicle. they knocked down the wall and they were able to go in and shoot the guy who had killed 49 people. todd: obviously this will be one of the points discussed in the many debates that can you expect over the course of the next couple months. zachery, you say that for young people who like socialism. they need a field trip to either cuba or venezuela. what is your reaction to bernie sanders' announcement? >> my reaction would be that two of my grand daughters have gone on field trips. in their younger years in school. and both of them have been very educational. i think taking kids to places like venezuela and cuba would be an eye opening experience to see what socialism is all about firsthand. i think bernie running as the democrat president candidate is the best thing in the world for the democrats and the republicans.
todd: why do you say is that? >> because it's bad for the democrats and great for the republicans. todd: zachery, thank you. finally felix, he has the line of the day. he called bernie sanders a unicorn. why? >> because he promises all these great things and rainbows and wonderful things and he can't deliver on that. history has shown that socialism doesn't work in any country. they promised the poor and down trodden all these wonderful things that never gets to happen. unfortunately he is nowtz going to be able to produce. he will get the votes, maybe, which is great for us because i think it will help trump win out presidency in 2020. tolded to thank you for your time u you will give yourself a round of applause u great stuff. back to new york city.

you thought you had a deal and then the governor does this. why did she pull the plug? >> well, this deal had been under works for well over a year. you know, this former prison facility has set vacant for over a decade now. immigration centers of america came in and said hey, we will invest tens of millions of dollars to fix up. we will bring at least 250 really good paying jobs to your community. and you know, governor whitmer came in and with a heavy hand just killed the deal. it's actually pretty devastating to my community. steve: no kidding. what would this immigration detention center do, tom? >> well, essentially it would hold illegal immigrants. you know, it's not shawshank redemption. this is -- it's a center that would be holding people who are, from my understanding more of civil infraction. they are not criminals. they are really just being held until they can get their hearing and that's what this center would do.
steve: okay there are places like that scattered across the country. apparently she said she made, accord talking, ridiculous demands. she wanted any immigrant who was separated from their family and put in the facility to be let go. >> yeah. that's precisely right. you know, i wish some people in the media would look into what her stipulations were so this deal had been in the works. she added some conditions to the development agreement. some of them were reasonable. one in particular basically said if i could boil it down was if anybody claims or alleges that they're being separated from a family, they would have to be let go. and, of course. nobody could comply with that. it literally just torpedoed the deal. let me put this in perspective. you know. there was a lot of national attention last week to the amazon deal 25,000 joist jobs to new york city. in the grand scheme of things though. jobs come and go in new york city. i think they can weather that storm.
not in in the city of eye own i can't. 250 jobs. that's massive. correctional community. ever since the civil war. ionnia has been housing prisons. correctional community. vital part to law enforcement community and to say that they don't somehow have michigan values to me is insulting. steve: the governor's office did put out a statement to us. they say the governor believes building more detection facilities won't solve our immigration crisis. she also believes separating families does not reflect our michigan values how you answered a moment ago. tom, you know, the governor is -- most governors would love to have 250 jobs for a small community like the one you are talking about right there. but it looks like politics got in the way of those 250 jobs, doesn't it it? >> really does. she is kind of stepping all over the city of ionnia. she wants to go toe to toe with president trump. well, good luck. we will see how that goes
for her. steve: how many sanctuary cities are there in michigan? >> you know, i don't have the answer to that question. i'm not aware of there being any to be honest with you. steve: just curious. and do you feel like there is a crisis at our southern border because apparently she is conflating what's going on down there with what's going on up in your neck of the woods. well, i guess i could put it this way. i'm a state legislator. i work in lansing. i don't work in d.c. and the fact that i'm on tv talking to you now. my biggest issue that i ran on that i campaigned on was legacy cost and fixing our broken pension systems and the fact that i'm here right now talking about immigration i think just shows how big of a crisis we are in right now. steve: there you go. thomas albert from michigan, thank you very much. >> thank you, steve. steve: what do you think about that? email us. meanwhile, one member of the media just made a stunning admission about their coverage of president trump. >> we have abandoned our pretense or at least the effort to be objective

for bernie sanders to say it's a right for those things that is a very potent message for a big chunk of this company. brian: keep in mind he had nobody attack him. hillary clinton didn't want to elevate him. she was barely attacking him. he will get hit by eight sides at some point. as soon as it becomes clear he will be legitimate, double figures threat, they're going after him and talk about his lack of accomplishments, basically are zero. except for helping destroy the e va was in a crisis when he was in charge of it, democrats had senate. ainsley: according to the polls, he has better chance in the race than anyone on the democrat side. brian: huge target. steve: a lot of people liked him, the field is so large ex, fraction alizeed because bernie runs more gets a bunch more. we'll keep you posted on that. shocking news from the world of mainstream media, one of the

know, all the coverage on trump all the time is negative. there is nothing, there is nothing, no mitigating policy or event or anything that has happened since he was elected that is out there in the media that you can read about, right? that tells you that is distortion of the way things go in real life. although the media has always been history, always been left-leaning, we've abandoned our pretense or at least the effort to be objective today. steve: that is the key. a lot of effort. ainsley: a lot of people agree with her. we asked you guys when we aired that in the first hour of the show, to weigh in on this steve said, lara logan is right. the media is not fair. i wish they were. we must still keep voting if we ever expect to change. brian: vito, we as educated americans can see what the media stands for, are able to see what

smollett's crisis manager, says he will work with them. if he does not, the case could be turned over to prosecutor or grand jury. two brothers said smollett paid them to rehearse and carry out the fake attack. smollett was upset a death threat letter a week prior with maga return address did not garner enough attention. his attorney says that anyone suggesting smollett played a role in his own attack is lying. >> why do you think you were targeted? >> i could just assume, i mean i come really, really hard against 45. i come really, really hard against his administration. reporter: this morning chicago police still not formally calling jussie smollett the victim or suspect in this case. ainsley. ainsley: matt finn, the story continues to develop. let's hand it down to.steve.
steve: ainsley thank you very much. former atlanta police officer vincent hill along with retired new york city police department commander joe cardinale, blue lives matter founder, new york city police department sergeant joseph petrice. good morning. "tmz" is reporting vincent, a grand jury could be seated as early as today to hear this doesn't it seem extraordinary to hear for last couple days the chicago police are asking to talk to him, he is like, not today? >> that is quite troubling, steve. you have to ask your sell why is he not willing to talk if he wasn't involved in some capacity to this if you were attacked the way he says he was attacked you would want to cooperate fully but we're not seeing that here from smollett and you have to question why. steve: were there any red flags in the initial story? >> absolutely. from the beginning. it was one of the coldest nights of the year in chicago. i believe it was minus
18 degrees. steve: polar vortex. >> the chances of smollett going out 1:30 to get to subway sandwich, the chance of people being on the street other than people involved in the alleged scheme, there is no others on street. there were two individuals because it was just that cold. steve: joe. >> i agree. for him to come out we felt it was orchestrated some degree from the beginning. i gave him the benefit of the doubt he was assaulted at one point. all these other factors started coming in. chicago police department did what they had to do. they laid-back, got their ducks lined up. they're systematically going through this i guarranty he will not speak to them, if he recants on anything, they have the knowledge from these go brothers it will be a big problem. steve: joe, it looks like there is amazing blitz work here. they were able to track down the two brothers who are not from
nigeria. they were born in chicago. they say they're not anti-trump or racist or not homophobic. there are the brothers right. there sounds like they have really spilled the beans according to "tmz" and the chicago paper. >> from law enforcement point of view you have to treat every case seriously especially with the allegations. some times, police officers walk through the door, no way this happened. sure enough, video, witnesses come out it ends up being true. on other side if the individual paid these guys off, come in, use lgbt community, throwing swipes at the president, completely disgraceful and he needs to be prosecuted to the fullest. steve: vincent, sounds like the police searched their apartment. they found a magazine with words cut out. it was a week earlier that smollett got at "empire" headquarters in chicago a racist letter. according to the latest news, he was apparently upset the racist letter didn't get a bigger reaction so that is why he paid these guys to stage this hoax.
>> what's said, steve, the fact he would use not only racial but political motivations behind this, for whatever reason he did this. but i heard about the letter, i kind, okay, maybe, but just a few days later this alleged attack, that really started to paint the picture something is not right here. the chances of if they were these white racists as he painted them out to be, chances are they wouldn't even watch "empire," wouldn't know who he is. the chances of them finding him at 1:30 in the morning just after this letter, slim to none. steve: if this is a hoax, joe what is the impact on people who come forward with other real hate crimes? >> we discussed this earlier. major impact, because they will say, who will believe me now. the real victims are the ones victim in this. people in the future get gay bashed if they're assaulted in any capacity with a racial motivation behind it, they will be a little hesitant, who are they going to believe. he really casts a dark shadow on
the rest of the country with this. steve: joseph, we just heard in the sound bite from gma, talks about how he really doesn't like the president of the united states and if this were a hoax, and all of these resources, all of these police officers out in chicago, and the fbi is probably involved as well, these are people in chicago who could be investigating some other crimes. >> what these individuals don't realize, i said it before in interviews, people with certain status, celebrities or politicians, use the platform to spew hate. what happens there is riots, police officers injured, people up in arms. it has to stop. these individuals, celebrity, whatever you want to call them, has to stop, because it could have really bad ramifications. steve: no kidding. great discussion, vincent, joe, joseph. we'll see what happens. 8:30 in new york city. bernie sanders announced hour 1/2 ago he officially announced he is running for president in 2020.

their economies are crumbling. it is not very good for any economy to have socialism. >> luis, thank you very much. maria, good to hear from you. you're a teacher. what is your reaction to the bernie announcement. >> it is not surprising to me that a lot of our millenials are gearing towards socialism. and that bernie sanders is playing to these people, because they have been indoctrinating in our schools. not only leftists professors teaching at universities, k-12 programs, have been teaching to the left for a long, long time and it is time that we teach these youngsters that socialism is not what it is cracked up to be. having lived under socialism, i can tell through is no equality in socialism except misery steve, thank you for your opinion, maria, as a teacher you would know.

powerful, because she fell in love with democracy. >> that was the story we got in public radio report before her election last fall. after the election the story seems to evolve. "new york times" reporting in december, she was essentially disappointed with america just about from the moment she arrived and i think what was really disturbing in the recent hearing of the house foreign relations committee, she was essentially giving kind of the marxist version of the cold war history. basically no mention of atrocities or horrors committed by communist opponents but wanted to focus a lot on bad things that our allies had done decades ago. ainsley: why do you think she broke up with america? >> you know, it's a good question. i think we're all sorry that this country hasn't lived up to her expectations but, it is a very disturbing view she is expressing. even today, she, there is, this
original claim that she fell in love with democracy. she is not supporting democracy in venezuela. she is supporting maduro who is preventing democracy in venezuela. brian: steve: she had, nancy pelosi specifically ordered her to apologize for a antisemitic tweet how politicians in washington support israel because they get money. it is all about the benjamins. here is louis farrakhan who has said a lot of anti-semitic things over the years. on sunday, talking about congresswoman omar. >> sweetheart, don't do that. you have nothing to apologize for. you were sent there by the people to shake up that corrupt house! shake it up. steve: he says to her she shouldn't have to apologize. >> she can't control what
farrakhan says, but obviously, this is not suggesting you're on the right track as a member of congress if you're earning the praise of louis farrakhan. i think as far as what the people wanted, they seem to get a very different story before her election. now they may decide over time they think it is great if she wants to give the anti-american view of history on her perch in the foreign relations committee, but probably would have been nice to tell people the full story on her views on america before the election. >> she supported farrakhan in the past. >> she is supporting maduro now. she is talking about, wants to talk about apparent outrages from decades ago. amnesty international says between 2015 and 2017, maduro's government has been responsible for extra judicial killings of more than 8,000 people. not to mention all of the people driven into poverty, starvation, millions fleeing across the border. you have this crisis right now,
