america great again hat's. todd: the left embrace the claims made by jussie smollett, appearing on tv demanding justice. jillian: will the same celebrities and media outlets come to the defense of the president's supporters? probably not. let's get an opinion. here to weigh in his republican strategists, thank you for your time, we appreciate it. you would think some people would have learned their lesson after the covington catholic situation that went on and now we have another situation where trump supporters are put out there to blame, so to speak. what do you make of it? people aren't learning. >> i tell -- feel terrible for the police chief who chased the ghost and i pray that there were not any victims through lack of resources because of this investigation.
as a police chief i know he said something about hopefully the truth makes as much traction as the lies jussie smollett told. if it was possible jussie smollett would have basis career on actual hate crimes that exist. this is what happens when you don't have an account are racists out there. victimhood is lucrative in america and jussie smollett knows that and so does the left know that and that is what they have been depending on and pushing from the beginning and that is why he thought he could get away with it. todd: look at these numbers. we showed in that montage a snippet of the wall-to-wall coverage of the jussie smollett case when it fit the mainstream media narrative. when something happened over the course of the last 48 hours and the narrative started to become questioned here's what the numbers looked like. cnn devoted 107 minutes, and okay amount in the scope of your primetime. msnbc, when news of jussie
smollett's arrests, posting bail, came out they provided no coverage whatsoever. what do you make of that? >> this is what they role on everything all-time. that covington -- that live turned out to be a lie and they ran with the fact that jussie smollett's unbelievable story, this is what the left does, this is what democrat politicians do. honestly jussie smollett what he did is a disservice to gays and the black community but also this constant conversation about racism and gay pride. if we spend as much time being pro-business or pro-america and support those policies donald trump would never have been able to run on make america great again. he could because everyone is selling victimhood but he ran on people feel they are the underdog. this to me, i am not surprised. i am shocked he made and orchestrated this entire attack
and it is really sad. jillian: will attacks continue against the president and his base? >> definitely. trump supporters should be very aware and alert. their agenda moving the 2020 election to depict trump and his supporters as racist because they have no other platform. how many people covered the black history month at the white house yesterday, not attentive networks. right now if you're a straight white male in america that shows any signs of masculinity you are a target. jillian: thank you. it is 19 minutes after the hour. shocking video of a gunman opening fire on a deputy. a new twist in the case. turns out the trigger man was here illegally. todd: donald trump junior calling out instagram for blocking users from liking his post. is a conservative censorship or

trump junior has been blocked by instagram. check out this reaction. we need to start a conservative social media outlet. another instagram user says i get conservatives blocked all the time on twitter for no reason other than being a conservative. pamela says this is sad. they won't do it again. instagram responded in a statement they say the action messages shown to people when we detect, they may be taking part in spamy behavior, liking multiple posts. this is a measure we have in place to prevent spam on instagram and isn't specific to anyone account. that is the explanation for the action blocked message. it is pretty common to like multiple pages. so i wasn't aware of this spamy behavior thing.
todd: if i told you want i told you thousand times, don't mess with james woods. >> he is part of the story. it is no secret the democratic party is moving to the left. bernie sanders raised $6 million the first 24 hours he announced his presidential campaign. alexandria oh cause eo cortez. this is part of the election cycle when the gop will paint the dems as socialists to deter you from voting in 2020 for the party that actually fights for the people. they will drill the word socialist into our daily vernacular. don't be fooled, this is strategy, not sincerity. james woods responding you are correct in your assessment. it is a classic tactic from the playbook used by your fellow liberals, a well-known, wait for it, socialist. the reason for the confusion on
the left is they don't understand the definition of socialism. jeff says when they call themselves democratic socialists we assume they mean democratic socialists. blame the democratic republican party for a lot. i don't think calling a socialist a socialist is one of those things. todd: a lot of them are official policy. >> they love it. jillian: let's talk about this robocop protecting a recipe. >> the big story of the day. kfc announced their newest spokesperson, colonel robocop who you see right there. colonel sanders robocop hybrid tasked to protect the secret recipe. let the food wars begin. burger king's tweet announcing the new chicken sandwich, they say a king outweighs a kernel. that is video of the colonel
hybrid. and rob says the robocop reboot everyone is waiting for. shouldn't it be robo colonel? he is right behind you. todd: which camera? this one. 2020, democrats caught in a race of who could go first to the left but how far is too far? charlie kurtz there are five ways democrats are fighting to out crazy each other. jillian: birthday wish going viral. his 12th birthday. you don't want to miss it. my mom washes the dishes... ...before she puts them in the dishwasher. so what does the dishwasher do? cascade platinum does the work for you, prewashing and removing stuck-on foods, the first time. wow, that's clean! cascade platinum.

it might -- am i walking? sometimes i don't walk. there is your forecast watching potential for severe weather and snow across the south. 46 in new york. happy friday. todd: 2020 democrats moving further to the left to appear the most progressive but how far is too far? turning point usa founder charlie kirk says democrats are fighting to out crazy each other, joins us with proof to back that up. thanks for joining us. i love that phrase, out crazy each other. example is the green new deal. >> if you look at the details of the green new deal it proposes banning 99% of all cars, a bullet a rating air travel as we know it.
the democrat party has come down to two big things. who can give away the most free stuff and who can hate trump the most. pretty dangerous things. as a country we should never give free stuff, but expand freedom and opportunity and now you have bernie sanders saying i was given free stuff away before all of you guys. essentially a booming economy, the country turning around and the entire democrat party is about giving away more stuff to more people and hating a successful president. todd: never forget the flatulent cows. you mention the economy turning around, a lot of people attribute that to tax cuts but the left seem to want tax hikes. >> not only that but proposing wealth taxes. this is something that is profoundly new in the american political discourse. elizabeth warren, part of the core policy, we should have attacks income, tax people's
wealth. you have the green new deal, challenging people in the democrat party. when they said they would bring it to a vote mitch mcconnell said he would bring it to a vote, he's been accused of trying to kill the bill but you're trying to kill a bill you want the most amount of people to vote on it so tax hikes, another one as i mentioned by foxnews.com, democrats are trying to out crazy each other. >> private healthcare. >> she walked it back a little bit, but we can get rid of private healthcare. even howard jules who is centerleft says this is totally nonsense. this would destroy millions of jobs, heard the entire american healthcare industry and we know from experience from data that has not worked well whatsoever. todd: handouts for all. >> bernie sanders and elizabeth worn and kamala harris and cory
booker trying to say i have been trying to give away the most amount of stuff to the most amount of people and that is not who we are as a country. medicare for all, education, free education, student loan forgiveness, someone who believes in free-market and american exceptionalism, very concerning, an entire part of the want to give away more free stuff. heather: amazing this is an option. infanticide. >> this is stunning to me. this is a new story in virginia. the news cycle, for the past mistakes the governor made. he still holds this scary position on abortion, the president mentioned the state of the union address, no one in the party running for president disagrees with what i call post-birth abortion and if you look at the actual governor's words it is pretty scary, the
democrat party has become more radical, scary for america but good news for the president because he will be able to way back the middle part of the country and self-described political moderates. todd: it is always a pleasure. jillian: 6 years since super storm sandy ravaged new york. this is liberal mayor is being told to shell out, to pay up over a relief fund and drawing outrage. >> still the beer. when they cross the line, dripping with beer. todd: what a great call, dripping with beer. basketball announcer getting creative when flames still off the court. more of this incredible call coming up. ♪
jillian: hollywood's biggest night is almost here, award season coming to a close with highly controversial oscars. todd: who will walk away with the iconic golden throw the? kevin mccarthy, a pleasure to see you. shall in, would win, should win? we start with best supporting actor. >> very excited about the oscars. i think supporting actor is a lock. holly will take him the award for best supporting actor for the movie green book. he won a couple years back from moonlight. this category is completely locked in. the only one i want to win is sam elliott. sam elliott was a star is born. jillian: what about best supporting actress? >> this is going to go to regina king who did an amazing job in
it field street could talk directed by the same filmmaker who did moonlight. i think regina king will win and should win. marina from a movie called romo which is an amazing performance as well. everybody in between, regina king will take home this award. todd: the same person in both categories. >> one of the most incredibly directed films i have seen in a long time. an idea of what a director does, the filmmaker shot the movie an absolute continuity, he shot it in the water, didn't give his actors a script. everything you are seeing is genuine reactions from actors learning what is happening in the story. it is very cool how he did it. jillian: i know who you think should win. who do you think will win?
>> this category, robbie malik is your front runner. he has won a lot of awards leading up to this. christian bale in my opinion, bradley cooper deserves to win this award but right now a star is born fizzled out in the award season. freddie mercury on sunday night. todd: let's go to best actress. >> glenn close, a career award, she will win for the wife. lady gaga should win this award. a star is born fizzled out throughout award season. glenn close to the great role, she was nominated before, they will give it to her for career. glenn close is my prediction. jillian: the star is born theme, does that film win best picture?
>> i have never seen an award season where there is no front runner, i don't know who is going to win. the netflix movie directed by alfonso cuarob won a lot of major awards. every different movie is one different thing. alfonso won the dj. a lot of different guilds, black panther, a lot of different films win black packager -- black panther, green book, so many movies out there. a star is born should win. don't be surprised if you hear green book. i am cheating here, so many movies to choose from and that makes the show exciting. we don't know what will happen.
jillian: winning for best-dressed. todd: you stole my line. >> part me if i seem tired. i just landed from la. thank you for having me on. todd: 46 after the hour. jussie smollett after staging his own attack. >> i do not believe that. it is the truth. i will never be the man this did not happen to. i am forever changed. todd: the question everyone is asking is why. a clinical psychologist ways and next. jillian: steve doocy with what is coming up on "fox and friends". >> i sat down during kevin mccarthy. was i supposed to wear a tuxedo? once upon a time my wife told me an event was formal i put on a
tuxedo and went there, i was the only one in a tuxedo. everybody thought i was a waiter. todd: just wanted to know where the shirt was. >> coming up 14 minutes from now on "fox and friends," we talk about what is going on with jussie smollett. some presidential contenders were asked about that and one prominent one dodged. we heard this morning conservative activist roughed up at uc berkeley. a great panel of people talking about the news of the day. sarah sanders will be with us. the attorney general of the great state of florida, pam body. senator from south carolina tim scott. it is friday, geraldo rivera will be on in 2 hours and 12 minutes. i will call him and tell him he should wear pants. jillian: see you soon. we are coming right back. a music service he doesn't listen

todd: 1 back. rob: -- jussie smollett's hate crime hoax unraveling before the nation. >> how do you not believe that? it is the truth. i will never be the man this did not happen to. i'm forever changed. talking to a friend, i want him to find them. he said they are not going to find them. jillian: everyone wents to know why a person would make up such a terrible story. here's clinical psychologist doctor norman free, thank you for being here.
everyone is asking why. sometimes you can go back through social media, different accounts and things people stated to find the reasons why. let's be clear. we are getting your opinion. you do not treat jussie smollett. >> conjecture from my experience as a clinical psychologist. jillian: tell us what you think, this tweet by alexandria cardio cortez, the only one speaking facts during the partial government shutdown, so far beyond political party affiliation, no matter the border from sea to shining sea, 45 and all his white hooded cohorts are a national disgrace. if you support them so are you. clowns. looking back at that knowing what we know now what do you think? >> interesting statement and quite embarrassing. it is a recapitulation of an unconscious process whereby jussie smollett is spilling the
seeds of his own conscience saying this fraud is coming from the inside. jillian: you mentioned fraud. and another tweet after he allegedly sent himself -- we are discovering that letter in the mail, he says, quote, frauds are everywhere and goes on to say protect the mind, heart and spirit of you and your people at all costs. anthrax can appear to be sugar. be careful out here. >> it is fascinating. this is gravitons, bluster which is almost being spoken in an attempt to hide the small empty ego it feels a sense of shame but instead expressing that, comments of you better watch out because there is danger about. heather: do people believe the stories they made up? >> fascinating question.
i believe, i can't tell you if jussie smollett believes these things but an attempt to break out of their inner shame they begin to tell the story so often it becomes the sole definition of who they are. jillian: fascinating to see how this plays out, appreciate you breaking it down for us, we will be right back. to make me feel sluggish but now, i take metamucil every day. it traps and removes the waste that weighs me down, . .

"fox & friends" starts right now. todd: bye. >> why would anyone, especially an african-american man, use a symbolism of a noose to make false accusations? >> senator, can you comment on smollett? >> one of the reasons why kamala harris and many other democrats bought into this immediately was convenient way to slander and smear half of the united states. >> california birkly a turning point u.s.a. recruiter was brutally attacked. >> this person claiming promoting violence on campus and proceeded to take his aggression out on us. >> thousands of migrants flood. right now agents are ramping up security. >> that is the same border patrol in el paso
