>> good morning, heather. >> i will jump straight to your personal experience. you were part of force that went to iraq and responsible for killing the original leaders of the isis state included in that you ran across an isis bride, take it from there and tell us what happened. >> sure, i know how isis operates better than anyone because i spent more than a decade hunting members of the group and my experience is coming in contact with the wives of isis fighters it taught me how extremely sedissic they are to loyal, they can think of nothing else. i will give you a further example of leading into what you were talking about in 2010 part of a small special operation's team that was tasked with hunting number one and two leaders of islamic state, during
the mission that followed to take out the guys there was a massive gun battle and we found out that the wife of the number one leader was actually located there during this mission and so our guys on the ground went in to try and save her so she wouldn't get hurt during the gun battle and when she realized that it was the end of her husband to prove her loyalty she got away from from the guys and started running into the hail of bullets and she was captured and questioned after that for months and it was like she was just brainwashed, she wanted nothing more than to kill americans and so that's why when i hear about this isis bride knowing what i know about the wives and knowing how they operate, i mean, i can't help but think that there's some greater purpose of what they're trying to do which is radicalize themselves in the u.s. and actually potentially conduct a larger operation to help radicalize further wives to
this cause. heather: what's interesting in the case that you were talking about, that particular wife she did act remorseful at first which we are now seeing from hodo asking remorseful but eventually she showed her true colors? >> that's the thing, heather, any remorse that i have ever seen from the individuals in custody was typically support further agenda of the group. to me it's absolutely disgusting that we have to fight isis overseas and now we have to fight them in our own courts. the fact that the case is coming up further helps them win here and radical liez further, you know, to me if we let her in, in the united states you can betray your country and fight for a terrorist group, you can kill americans and you can come back and find some people that will
be remorseful and help you out. heather: she would maybe face crimes and put in prison but you also see prison benefits isis because they see that as huge recruitment tool. >> exactly. it is part of isis's doctrine to recruit within prisons. they would send their fighters into prison for small crimes for the sole purpose to recruiting, this is one propaganda tool for isis to use and potentially to bring others to the cause because we know that this is part of their doctrine and what i've understood from years after going after these individuals an seeing how sedistic they are, they think of nothing else than to further the cause, how do we know that this isn't part of larger operation and radicalize other members. heather: she didn't mary one but 3 isis fighters and recruit
american using social media to use violence against americans. we have to wrap up, what is your personal opinion on hodo? >> well, my personal opinion is she should rot in syrian desert where she belongs, she should not be allowed to come back and she -- she dug her grave and she needs to be buried in it, we cannot have other people radicalized for this cause and kill further americans and so she's a terrorist. i don't even like calling her an isis bride to be honest because that sounds too nice and she's a terrorist and doesn't belong here, back in the u.s. heather: bret, firsthand experience, thank you so much for sharing that with us. >> thanks, heather. heather: have a good day, time now is 19 minutes after the top of the hour and nick marking the anniversary of the march in selma by slamming the trump administration. >> we are living through a

vandalism. >> highlights voting rights. >> it's our turn to demand that we end all voter suppression in this country. >> as presented to you by the national voting right. >> clinton was honored at historic event although she did not mention president trump she took aim at the administration. >> and make no mistake, we are living through a full pledged crisis in our democracy. >> voter suppression as key issue in 2018 midterm elections in states like north carolina where republican congressional candidate was accused of voter fraud and selma alabama fox news. >> and fox news alert for you, wicked weather across the country, deadly tornadoes crisscrossing the south while snow blankets the northeast, janice dean is live so stay tune.
heather: a look at headlines, starting with fox news alert. at least 23 people are dead including children after the tornado with path of destruction across alabama, officials in lee county are now using drones equipped with peep-seeking devices to scan area for survivors. the storm system with violent weather through parts of
florida, south carolina and georgia. that is where twister went through church, look at this, left pulpit standing. the women who left america to join isis will hearn today if she can return to the united states, the trump administration says hodo masana is not a u.s. citizen. here is her response. >> i would tell him to study. heather: attorneys are expected in court today. and house judiciary committee is using michael cohen to lay ground work for impeachment, democrat says lawyer has directly implicated the president. document from 60 people including donald trump, jr. and others named by cohen in public testimony last week.
shutting down schools and causing major travel problems, new york city getting several inches of snow, canceling a hundred flights out of laguardia airport. new jersey up to new england before it would push offshore. janice dean joins us live, janice, under the winter weather alerts? >> yes, the good news is that we are almost done with storm system. this is the same storm or at least part of the energy that brought those devastating tornadoes across the south, let's take a look at the map, i will show you reports of tornadoes across the south, this was tornado outbreak and, of course, costing dozens of people's lives, that would be top story but the cold side of the storm is what brought no conditions across the north and finally exit the new england
coast later this morning, this afternoon, the problem is, heather, temperatures are going to drop so the temperature, because the temperature is going to drop anything on the ground, it's going to freeze and we could have very treacherous travel on the roads, highways, people need to be cautious even though it looks wet it could be icy, that would be the concern as we go through the next say 24 to 48 hours the temperatures will drop significantly and remain very cold throughout the workweek, friday we will bump up along the freezing mark but that would be the big story, here is your forecast today, our storm system exiting the northeast coastline, very cool conditions across much of the country. 46 daytime high in atlanta, 43 in houston, 17 in kansas city, the cold air, arctic air is going to remain with us for much of the workweek, for much of the workweek for much of the country and take a look at tuesday and wednesday, so still hanging on the winter so even though the
storm is exiting we will really deal with those icy road conditions people need to be really aware of that. heather: really the treacherous weather across country, deadly tornadoes to snowstorm, definite i will keeping you busy, we appreciate you being with us so early. how about this? two young sisters found alive after 2 days in the willed -- wilderness, watch the moment when they are reunited with their family. heather: look at that, 8-year-old laya and her 5-year-old sister caroline more than a mile away from northern california home after they wandered away on friday where they tracked them down following trail of granola wrappers.
>> i want to thank god for that. >> certainly 44 hours, the girls were trained for outdoor survival through club and they are both doing okay. avalanche in colorado mountain site right towards the highway, incredible moment all caught on camera. >> got it? >> is it going to come down here, is it, is it? heather: is it, is it. crashing down into the creek creating a powder cloud. no people or cars were buried and no one was injured. eventually he started backing up. good idea. well, president trump wowed crowd of cpac bringing back everything that we saw in 2016 during the election, watch.
>> i saw little shifty shift yesterday, the collusion delusion, russia, please, if you can, get us hillary clinton's emails and what we did in 2016 the election we call it with a capital e, it's never been done before and we will do it, i think, again in 2020. heather: will the same approach work for him in 2020, here to debate democratic political analyst and patrice, thank you for joining us this morning. >> thanks, rather. >> patrice, i will start with you, it was something else, 2 hours and 2 minutes. >> oh, my goodness, president trump statesman of the white house and without a full force and base loves unfiltered unorthodox persona, he did a great preview of what 2020 contenders can expect and it would be difficult for them to challenge them at substance, at
best on style and most americans are used to this style at this point. >> robert, what did you think about it? >> what we have to understand that elections don't exist in silos, you can't run the same election and electorate are different and democrats have had another 4 years to prepare for what he was doing in 2016. he can't simply depend on free media for everything he does something or every time he tweets something, we will have much more interesting race this time where democrats are more prepared for trump typhoon. heather: some of the things he can talk about mini successes, record low unemployment being one of them. >> unemployment for blacks and hispanic people of color, record for women as well. the base supported him in 2016, electing two supreme -- getting two supreme court judges on the bench, lower-level judges as well. looking at foreign policy, making america strong force in
the international state i think is something that's been important as well and, you know, just looking at the economy, it is booming and unless something turns around the economy, again, difficult for democrats to fight back and by the way, i disagree with my colleague here, i mean, whenever the president tweets it does make national news because a lot of news networks make money off of the president. whatever he says is still going to make house and it's hard for those contenderses to try to breakthrough. heather: robert, i will ask you this question in terms of democrats and those who are thinking about or have already announced they are running against president trump in 2020. seems to be a lot of them talk about green new deal, socialism seems to take center stage and get a lot of free coverage when they talk about things like that and conservatives at cpac think it's not in fact, bernie sanders who, of course, supports socialist views but instead joe biden who is president trump's biggest threat in 2020 and as you respond to that we can bring up the poll that actually shows
that, 40% think that joe biden is a bigger threat, but he's more, what, moderate versus the far-left candidates that we seem to hear from. >> well, let's understand one thing, bernie sanders will not be the democratic nominee for president, he is not a democrat, bernie sanders is the democratic nominee i would no longer be a democrat, i will come back with a maga hat on. heather: really? >> wow. >> bernie sanders will not be the democratic nominee and the reason joe biden is polling so well, 100% name recognition, universally adored and reminds people of the obama years, he has the moderate policy where people want to cross party lines, he can actually get things done in washington, let's look at bernie's record in the senate and what will he actually pass and things get passed into law. the 2016 was about a hatred for hillary clinton and that's why bernie looked so good.
bernie versus a real democratic will not do so well. heather: hatred of president trump, maybe that wouldn't be a good track for democrats but was we do know that he raised $6 million in a couple of hours he declared. patrice, final word. >> yeah, don't count out bernie sanders yet, i think there's still a lot of angst on the left for the fact that based on how he was treated and while biden does do well with democrats and some independents, he would have to survive a pretty harsh democratic primary season, he's going to be taking hits and a lot of the things that he said, uncle joe has said in the past will come back to bite him, i'm not so optimistic that it would be done deal at this point. heather: democratic may be changing, the survey where 77% of democrats believe that the country would be better off in terms of socialism. so, you know, we will see. thank you both for joining us,
appreciate it. >> thanks, heather. heather: have a good day. time now 20 minutes until the top of the hour and the dangers of medicare for all. speaking of socialism, lower-quality delays in treatment, job-killer, dr. mark siegel live to break down how democrats' new plan will affect your family. unemployed woman charged with assaulting her mom over yoga class.
us, appreciate it. >> good morning, heather, how are you? heather: i'm doing break, let's break down the proposed medicare for all plan, cosponsored by more than 100 house democrats, single-payer system like plans used in uk and canada and would largely outlaw private insurance. so what are the problems that stand out to you? >> well, number one it would outlaw private insurance. here is why there's a problem, backbone is health insurance that covers and not everyone takes a job that necessarily want and they may take job to get their insurance. you take incentive away and leave that entitlement they will leave that job, millions of jobs lost because people say i'm not getting my health care that way. this is a booming part of our economy that's going to be under direct threat with wrecking ball if medicare for all came through.
heather: what about cost? >> cost is huge, 30 to 33 trillion-dollar cost just to transition over to the medicare for all system. so when you ask the taxpayers out there, sure, they love it and they hear taxes are going up, they don't love it. they hear that they'll be waiting lines for the care they are used to getting and that's what we have in canada under single payer there, then they don't love it, 30% like it, is it like the medicare i know, no, it's more like medicaid, then again it's very unpopular when you hear all of those. heather: job loss, issue with cost, what about quality of care? >> so that's an enormous point to talk about right now. we are at a time of great innovation in health care, we are getting personalized treatment, personalized solutions, robotic surgery that you can perform from another place in the world, innovations in immuno therapy, those are incredibly expensive and i don't predict that medicare for all would be really geared towards
paying for that. i hope of the current medicare program, she said to me even current medicare is figuring out how to cover innovation, when people see they are not getting the treatments they need, it's going to become even less popular. i dent predict that this will go anywhere, i think it's a slogan, to get attention is to get the youth votes, that's what the democrats are trying for. the prediction is it doesn't get out of the ways and means committee. heather: interesting that you say that because potential 2020 candidates are touting and an effort to get the younger vote who understand really what it means. >> let's talk about marijuana across state lines and let's have medicare for all, sounds great. heather: thank you, dr. siegel, love you having with us. why in the world are parents throwing slices of cheese at

antisemitic comments, this one happened during event in washington, d.c. where she suggested that proisraeli lobbying groups are pushing politicians to pledge allegiance to israel. now, some people say that this is stereotype of dual loyalty that jewish americans are secretly more loyal to israel than they are america. one politician that's upset about this is democratic new york congresswoman nida loe, she said on twitter, lawmakers must be able to debate without prejudice or bigotry, i'm saddened that congresswoman omar continues and i urge her to retrack statement and engage with jewish community on why comments are so hurtful. i fine that to be problematic and i'm not alone, i just happen to be willing to speak up on it and

we are living through a full pledged crisis in our democracy. >> people on social media are responding. she can save us all and then another commenter says the crisis is how bias democrat tried to derail a dually elected president, pushback on that remark as well. heather: let's switch to something fun or bizarre i should say, throwing cheese at babies. carley: can't wait. i don't know how this whole thing started but, yes, it is a massive trend that is sweeping social media, parents across the country are partaking in what is being called a cheese challenge that has them throwing cheese at their babies see -- face to see
