3:02 am
i was covering the story. i was in vietnam. pete: welcome, ed. i talk to diners and they say hello to ed in the swamp. eddie from the swamp. ed: it's great to be back i have been gone for a couple weeks and great to have you, emily. emily: good to be back with you guys on the couch. lots to cover today and get. to say. ed: democrats mired for days in this controversy over freshman congresswoman ilhan omar. they tried to make it all go away by putting together this resolution that got watered down, frankly. it turned out t out not to be about denouncing her. it never named her and number two it made a very general let's be against all forms of hate which we should be. pete: of course. ed: however, that's not where all this started. democrats thought they finally turned the page after they passed that watered down resolution. here she is.
3:03 am
pete: no one told hollande's otr communication director maybe she shouldn't give another would yointerview. omar said the hope and change offered by barack obama was a mirage. quote, we don't 79 anybody to get away with murder because they are polished. we want to recognize the actual policies that are behind the pretty face and the smile. she is referring, in her mind, to drone attacks under the obama administration and the so-called caging of kids that, you know, started under the obama administration. she threw a lot of shade at barack obama. ed: freshman democrat now going after obama not president trump. emily: when she says that about policy you also have to understand words matter. her words have had a ripple effect the party is having this fractured response to that a lot of people are calling for her to answer. to say. ed: funny you say that nancy pelosi as speaker kind of brushed aside the
3:04 am
controversy by saying she didn't fully understand as a freshman the weight of her words. emily: that's ridiculous. ed: i'm not agreeing with it and here she is with more words. pete: she says she was misquoted. she said exhibit a of how reuters distort words. enough to she is calling it the fake news, apparently. i'm an obama fan. i was saying how trump is different from obama and why we should focus on policy, not politics. this is why i always tape my introduce. interviews. ed: there is tape. emily: we have sound from that interview. ed: here is the tape what did she say? >> many of the peoplsay?
3:05 am
ed: so you can see the actual quote, she first was talking about president trump to be fair, his policies are bad but she said, but, many of the people who came before him, before trump, meaning obama, bush, others, also had really bad policies but they were more polished than he was and she went on and talked about murder and all the rest of it. the quotes back up what the reporter said. emily: she refused to answer questions, remember, our own peter doocy was asking her about it. and she faked, i think, a phone call, refused to answer but then in that interview there certainly was full of words and criticism of obviously. pete: ma'am, your phone is not on, no, no, it is. it's releasing you release the tape and the tape validates exactly what was in the article. the reporter tweeted back we
3:06 am
won't show that exhibit a when politicians try to lie about what they actually said. she keeps talking which is the gift that keeps on giving for folks who want to know what she really feels. the problem is nancy pelosi has been in a spot, ed, you talked about it early on. she is of a different generation. looks at the words of someone like ilhan omar, aoc or reaciousd. ed: nancy pelosi wants to be talking. remember they promised before the midterms we are going to talk about kitchen table issues, jobs, healthcare, they are talking about anti-semitic comments. emily: defending or explaining what those freshman congress men and women are doing and that belies the point of this freshman class saying we are independent. we know so much. really? because the party leadership is having to explain your behavior and in the process making you sound like a child. pete: correct. and explaining away. nancy pelosi was asked again yesterday about ilhan omar. you know, they passed this resolution that didn't condemn her specifically. got all watered down. asked again about omar's
3:07 am
comments. this is what nancy pelosi said. >> the incident that happened with -- i don't think our colleague is anti-semitic. i think she has a different experience in the use of words. doesn't understand that some of them are fraught with meaning that she didn't realize. ed: didn't realize her words. she is a member of congress. pete: a different experience in the use of words. you add together what she says pledging support to a foreign country. all about the benjamins. may i remind you of the 2012 tweet? she know what is hypnotize means, israel hypnotize the world may allah awaken the people and help people see the evil doings of gaza #palestine. these are the views of ilhan omar and she is the on the foreign affairs committee. emily: before she was elected there were plenty of tweets and commentary that raised plenty of uproar and she was elected anyway. i find it a challenge that it seems the democratic
3:08 am
party is surprised by this and now finding different ways to explain it away that obviously makes no sense and is offensive in and of itself when she has a history of this. this is not new at all. pete: no, it's actually shameful. nancy pelosi knows better. she'll can't control her caucus. the fracture is going to continue. the energy is with these leftists who are very skeptical of israel. ilhan omar has said i want to continual this critique. bernie sanders backed her up recently hey, she should be able to say what she wants. she is being hunnettes. thehunnettes ---honest. they are trying to paper over that. democrats are not where we would hope they would be. ed: omar should be able to speak out it is a free country. as a muslim-american she can have her views. she can speak out and do in a i think that is healing. we will see whether she does it after this resolution passed instead of more divisiveness. everybody should lower the temperature a little bit:
3:09 am
jussie smollett is in the news in deeper and deeper trouble. 16 charges handed down, inel indicted. 16 felony counts over that whole situation in chicago. here is his attorney calling the media reaction a media gang bang. >> what is happening here is, frankly, a media gang bang of this guy of unprecedented proportions. and that's the reason i got into this. i have never seen a media pend lump swing more quickly and more viciously to rob somebody of their presumption of nnsz like this case. it's startling the way people assume he is guilty. emily: the grand jury returned 16 new counts. this is a floppy indictment. is he facin -- felony indictmen. this is in addition to the one he brought before. the fbi is still investigating the letter that he sent that he allegedly at this point mailed himself, likely did.
3:10 am
there is a whole host by the way of even more hot water that he is facing with that i have to say. pete: turns out you shouldn't make up a fake attack. deroy murdock from national review was on tucker's program last night had this to say about smowltd. smollett. >> if smollett is convicted it will send a badly needed message if you lie to police about events that didn't take place especially in a city like chicago with a massive crime problem with homicides. police who ought to be fighting murders who are sidelined to work on this fake case. so that's very serious. pete: oh boy, he thought he was going to get paid a little bit more. now is he getting justice. we will see where it goes. emily: illustrate the fact that you can't have hollywood uberous and expect there is not consequences to your actions and there is not a machine that is kicked into place when you fake -- when you literally set up a hoax with racial charges and homosexual charges and there is so many elements to that yes, absolutely he should face consequence noors.
3:11 am
ed: there was a lot of coverage. it disappeared. pete: i like that hollywood uberous. you are right. emily: turning to your headlines, three people including a child on a school bus killed in a fiery crash overnight. the bus carrying a middle school softball team collided with an suv in oklahoma city. the names of the victims have not been released and no word yet on the cause of that crash. the first family is surveying the devastation left my by several deadly tornadoes in alabama. >> we saw things that you wouldn't believe. i just want to thank you on behalf of the first lady and myself. i want to thank you for the job you are doing. you are incredible people. emily: the president and the first lady meeting with survivors, victims' families and volunteers. later pausing for a moment of silence in front of 23 crosses representing those lives lost. chelsea manning is back behind bars for refusing to testify on wikileaks. a judge holding a former

♪ >> disappointing jobs report caps off a bad week of economic news for president trump. >> 20,000 jobs created versus the estimate of 180,000 jobs. that's a problem. >> those numbers falling off a cliff from just last month. >> the economy is slowing down. ed: media jumping in on that
3:17 am
one for sure sounding off on the 20,000 jobs added last month. emily: the unemployment rate has dropped and labor. >> now they are covering it let's ask business and economics professor. okay not the numbers anyone wanted to see explain it for us. >> the four months leading up to february we were averaging a quarter million new jobs per month. nobody wants to talk about that until we see a 20,000 number. that's a big deal. the 20,000 number in february, it's low. but let's talk about what happened in january with the shutdown. that has spillover effects in february and you had weather in the west and midwest in february that would have hurt hiring. but for the year we still got more than a quarter million new manufacturers drugs and quarter of a million construction jobs. good news. appeared in february the wage number up by 3.4%. that's the best we have seen in 10 years with inflation
3:18 am
falling that means more money in your paycheck. emily: tell us about that cycle may 2015, 15,000 jobs. and then 15 months of 100,000. and then september '17, 18,000. 16 months of 100,000 jobs. is this just a cycle and everyone freaks out on that one low month. >> this is the problem. everyone looks at the one number and you see the headlines they start talking about doom and gloom. you have to have perspective here. the bottom line is nobody expected us to be creating jobs at a quarter million a month. this late into the recovery and nobody was expecting that two years into the trump administration. he has defied everywhere's expectations not only as critics but even his supporters, i think thought quarter million jobs the end of 2018 beginning of 2019. there is no way we will see that. that's exactly what we will be seeing because february was an odd month i expect march you are will see some of that come back a little bit. the number will be closer to what we have seen on trend.
3:19 am
pete: s "the washington post" is admitting in. headline said on your wage progressive, workers suddenly have more power to demand higher pay and better jobs. here is even more from the article as we are hiring signs abound people not actively looking for jobs have starting jumping back into the labor force suggesting more untapped potential. that's great news. more jobs and they pay better. >> you know, we always talk about people wanting higher wages and get into this minimum wage debate. but the truth is the thing that drives higher wages consistent solid a growing economy. when you have job choices you can go to an employer and say i would love to work for you but this is what it is going to take to hire me. that is what is happening to workers because have you companies all over the landscape saying we need workers. the biggest problem in this country is companies can't find workers. we have more open positions than unemployed people in this country. ed: absolutely. >> that's how wages go up. ed: to be clear you say the government shutdown pete

jewish. thank you for being here. >> thank you. pete: democrats passed this reduce but it's convoluted. >> it's a watered down resolution. it's become a creatured of the far left. look at amazon. you would have to be crazy to turf down amazon in new york but aoc, the others out there did. so, i think it's very sad, the democratic party has become a far left wing party which is why president trump is going to get reelected in 2020. pete: has it become anti-semitic and anti-israel? >> not everyone in the party. some like eliot engel a good friend of mine is good on israel. by and large i wrote a piece in the "wall street journal" 18 months ago which said that the democratic party is not a pro-israel party
3:26 am
anymore. that you see how they behaved during that iranian nuclear debate which i think was very anti-israel, not to support -- to support the iranian deal. and generally, i think the left in the party is for disvestment in israel. i think while there are still democratic individuals, the party as a whole is not a pro-israel party anymore which makes me really sad. pete: that's too bad. emily: you recently met with the president at the white house, right? will you tell us a little bit about that. >> i know i was going to call him donald but i have to call him mr. president. i met the president in 1973. and i'm proud of him. i think he is doing a great job. you would never know it if you watched some of the other television stations. but, i think he has done very well in the economy. i brought in an old friend

of mine, who is my polster, mark penn. pete: former clinton polster. >> former bill clinton polster to share some of the polling data that he does for his harvard harris poll. and we had a good time and talked about a lot of the issues that effect people and he shared some of his polling with the president. and it was an interesting meeting. you had a lot of the cabinet waiting outside. [laughter] >> to brief him on china and he said well, i'm -- this is interesting. let him wait a little while. pete: fantastic. >> i have got to get your response on another new york politician. colleague runninkirsten gillibrand running for president. no democrats have yet to endorse her. why not support locally for
3:28 am
kristin gillibrand as she runs for president. >> i think she is a little bit of a fraud. i hate to say that but, you know, she is out there as the champion of women. and if you look at her background, there are a few issues, health issues that have hurt women more than excessive smoking. and if you check the record, she was the top lawyer defending the the tobacco industry when she worked at the law firm. i don't think she has done anything. so, you know, i think her lack of support is the fact that i don't think her record is very impressive. pete: she is sort of a former so-called moderate who has decided to pick up all these progressive issues and try run as a champion of them. folks in her backyard are going to know that more than most. >> well, as i said, i think she hasn't really distinguished herself.
3:29 am
she hasn't done anything. everybody in the democratic party is trying to move as far as left as possible, which is why president trump is going to win because he is going to be running against, you know, whoever it is going to be far, far to the left. and gillibrand -- she is moving all the way to the left but her record doesn't support that. pete: good stuff. emily: thank you so much. >> thank you so much. pete, thank you for your supporting the military. pete: i appreciate it sir. thank you. emily: a maga hat snatched off a teen's head while he was riding the school bus. >> take that -- boy, if you don't take that hat off on this bus. take it off. >> i can't wear a hat? no take that hat off now and put it in your backpack. emily: now the school district is taking action. pete: the question is against who? i hope it's the bus driver. the army taking physical fitness test to a new level. i do still have what it takes to be in the army?

3:47 am
of representatives. rules committee, judiciary committee and homeland security committee. and in all three of the committees it's been attack on trump, attack on trump, attack on trump. this clearly is a coordinated effort by the democrat majority to attack trump and try win in the 2020 presidential election. i think it's very coordinated throughout all of the committees. and i don't think, you know, potentially coordinating with the witness for 10 hours just seems wrong to me. emily: representative, can you explain to viewers why here then it would be different than, for example, all the proffers that happened in 2012 and the ms global situation. is it only the duration? is it the potential for coordination based on the ensuing questions? what exactly makes this potential proffer situation different than in the past when congress has used it liberally? >> well, you know, we are going to have to see more of the details and find out. but i just think the
3:48 am
american public wants us to really work on big issues to solve real problems. and all we have been doing is investigations and interrogations, harassment. to me it's a very coordinated effort and it doesn't matter if it's in judiciary committee. i mean i'm on rules committee, too and homeland security, and just about every witness that comes before us the democrats try to set them up to somehow undermine the trump administration. it really does seem to me to be a very coordinated effort. and i hope we get the answers on that. ed: not focused on kitchen table issues. we will see what they actually follow up on. we appreciate you coming in this morning giving your perspective. >> thank you. ed: caliphate is crumbling as u.s. backed fighters prepare to move into the final scrap of territory inside syria. does this mean the end of isis is finally near?

breakup as you heard claiming amazon, google and facebook are monopolies. emily: but is this a good idea? let's ask kurt the cyberguy. thank you for joining us. >> great to see you. pete and i differ on this one. pete: we do. >> i am very pro-tech as you know but at the same time i think there is no doubt they are monopolies but when you see legislation proposed that if i become president i'm going to break all this up, that's taking a wrecking ball to american business in one whack. how about we start in steps and how about we look at the obvious thing which is rather than kill them off, how about making sure a way is paved for the little guy to get in. so if you and i come up with an idea, we have a chance. pete: i'm going to defend elizabeth warren. i'm serious. i read her op-ed i actually agree with her argument. i don't think you are ending these tech companies breaking them up and become anticompetitive crowding out the little guy. she is saying at some point in america the government does have a role to make
3:54 am
sure that small business has an opportunity to compete. it's actually a very compelling argument. >> it is at the same time she is calling what they're now illegal. that's not true. the fact is they didn't break any laws to achieve what they have achieved as dominance in the marketplace. you don't punish america company for becoming american and becoming successful. so what you want to do instead is i think make some openings and at the same time on the privacy front that i'm very, very harsh on all of them for really. he had said there a middle ground common sense regulation make sure you are not just taking everybody's data and selling it off to everyone. >> what's great about climbing this mountain is other people have done it look at the eu. europe has done a magnificent job giving as you road map what's working and not working in their legislative ways to regulate the privacy aspect of tech companies. pete: i'm not looking to europe for anything. they may be good on some things. we have a history in this country of recognizing that companies that are too big
3:55 am
that squeeze out competition are ultimately not good for the consumer. you get less choice. you get less quality over time and competition is good. and if amazon is going to have the platform and sell it to me and undercut competitors, government has a role at some point to step in. and small measures probably aren't going to do anything. i don't love the fact that they are not taking on censorship of free speech. that's not what elizabeth warren wants to do. trust busting has a history in this country. >> i want to see a smart plan that doesn't say let's just blow it all up first. i'm hearing dramatic politicized speech from a candidate that wants to get a cheap vote. and i think we're better than that i think we have got to be more intelligent about it at the same time, i want control over my personal data. i am tired of silicon valley rolling over everybody's personal rights and their privacy in this country and in the world, frankly. and that's where i would like to see us start.

back to the summit in vietnam. of the testimony from michael cohen. now he appears to be on a verge of a major national security success. we will see whether folks follow up and actually give him credit. pete: reporting this morning and we have been hearing this nor a while. weeks i heard our own reporters talking about how they have a football field size piece of terrain left. the size of central park. isis is backed into a corner syria. and they have lost all their territory. on the banks of a river. at the last gasp of a few fighters holding on to so-called caliphate. remember this, it was no small feat to crush identifies. they were growing and came out of the will. ed: obama called them the jv team. president trump said i'm going to defeat them. this is what president trump said years ago about defeating isis. listen. >> the middle east our brave warriors have liberated

of the u.s. military. that's a good thing. democratic primary voters looking to 2020. they may be feeling the bern again. we saw this in 2015. bernie sanders almost out of nowhere. i was covering that campaign. every smart person in the democratic party pretty much thought hillary clinton was going to waltz in. that's why joe biden and others stayed on the sidelines then. and when i was at bernie sanders' rallies and clinton rallies, i was stunned time and time again by the huge crowds bernie was getting. the clinton people dismissed it as sort of this fantasy and just young people coming out and they weren't going to vote and yet, he kept gaining momentum and we're seeing it again. is he starting slowly to get big, big crowds. emily: like you were just saying too before that not to dismiss him. that would be the most dangerous thing possible to dismiss him and not take as a repeat the size of these crowds and the amount of that energy that we are seeing that people feeling the bern. pete: he was in iowa city, iowa yesterday. here is bernie sanders. >> this is a campaign which
4:07 am
is not only going to win the democratic nomination, is not only going to defeat donald trump the most dangerous president in modern american history. but this campaign is about more than that. we will no longer tolerate the greed of wall street and the greed of the billionaire class. we'll pass a medicare for all single pair healthcare system. donald trump, he embarrasses us every single day. ed: look he is a is list democrat. he has become a socialist democrat to work within the democratic party a little bit. but, he drew these massive crowds as i mentioned in 2016. i spoke to a smart democrat yesterday who told me, look, they are watching on social media. he had an event in chicago the other day. massive crowds. pete: what's a smart
4:08 am
democrat? ed: i knew you would jump on that. emily: "the washington post" had a headline as bernie sanders launches his second presidential campaign, big crowds but some doubt in early states. pete: the doubt from smart democrats who got it so right last cycle. grant woodward an iowa based lawyer had this to say i think the big issue going forward is how much of the support he had in iowa four years ago was people that truly bought into his movement and how much of it was people who fundamentally want to support mostly cloudy smart money was on hillary clinton then and smart money is on somebody else now. you can't under estimate. ed: are they sleeping on him again? a socialist will never -- he is now within the mainstream of the democratic party. his ideas seem pie in the sky medicare for all and now the green new deal. that's all bernie. that's the bernie script. maybe the democratic party is much more left than the mainstream media wants to admit and he might do a lot
4:09 am
better in these primaries than these quote unquote smart people think. emily: doesn't seem like it's losing any energy to give everyone the benefit of the doubt until you are proven otherwise rather than the opposite where there would be a surprise you can't recover from. remember his response to ilhan omar's comments were not the rallying to the opposite side, the staunchly denouncing the comments that most people were hoping to see. so that, too kind of belies his position and might be much more far left. pete: bernie sanders defended ilhan omar. pays to be the original socialist. that was bernie before bernie was cool. i was yesterday in a diner for "fox & friends" talking to folks on the ground and i asked citizens of vermont who have been with bernie sanders for decades what they thought of bernie. listen. >> what do you think of bernie sanders? >> i am not a fan. i moved to vermont six and a half years ago. my liberalism is waning the longer i live here. and i think bernie is part of that problem. >> bernie has not really
4:10 am
been favorable to the state of vermont. his focus is anti-gun. is he focused on socialism. i'm not a big bernie fan. >> the socialism isn't going to work. it's not affordable. >> you can't keep giving and giving, you know,getting from people and not getting from somewhere else and expect that it's going to last. pete: to be fair, we weren't talking to a lot of fans of bernie. but they all acknowledge that he caught fire nationally the message of the democratic party. they point to vermont and say our lives here haven't gotten better. we are paying people 10 10 grand to come to vermont as they leave for texas in a business friendly. ed: is the media sleeping on bernie sanders again. is the democratic party more socialist than folks in the media and party want to admit? emily: let us know. turning no your headlines, jussie smollett maintains his innocence still after a grand jury indicts him on 16 new felony counts for disorderly conduct.

ilhan omar, congresswoman, is under tremendous attack. republicans and the media have blown this up to be much more than it is. ed: well, some on the far left as you can see rallying to support congresswoman ilhan omar following her anti-semitic comments. in fact, some of her biggest backers 2020 presidential hopefuls. emily: here to break down how they handle the controversy is senior writer for the heritage foundation and fellow for the independent women's forum kelsey. thank you for being here this morning. >> good morning, great to be here. emily: break down for viewers how is it that we have some on the left saying it is being blown out of proportion when the comments were so offensive. >> that's a good question. what's interesting is when it comes to the 2020 democrats who are sitting centers all of their responses and statements to these anti-met particular comments were versions of the same things where basically they say we neat tneedto denounce and condemn
4:18 am
anti-semitism but refuse to take the step and denounce the specific comments that congresswoman omar actually made. so it's like they are willing to talk the talk but not walk the walk. ed: let's give an example to your point kamala harris senator from california part of her statement like some of my colleagues in the congressional black caucus i'm concerned that the spotlight being put on congressman omar may put her at risk. we have heard this a lot and she should not be getting death threats. let's be very clear. there are members of congress, jewish, muslim, all different faiths and background who get death threats this is abysmal. it should not happen. that does not excuse anti-semitic comments, does. >> it no. and absolutely no sitting member of congress should face any sort of death threats. let's be clear about that. it is pretty incredible to see senator kamala harris basically defend the person who made the anti-semitic statements. she is voicing more concern
4:19 am
for her safety rather than the safety of the people that the group, judicial americans who the comments were actually directed to. emily: kelsey we have two more comments we would like you to hear and respond. to say we have senator bernie sanders he says what i fear is going on in the house now is an effort to target congresswoman omar as a way of stifling that debate. that's wrong. and then we have senator elizabeth warren who said in a democracy we can and should have an open respectful debate about the middle east that focuses on policy. threats of violence like those made against rep omar are never acceptable. is this simply shifting the focus away from her comments, obviously not with understanding that we denounce threats of violence and also, again, not with that same amount of reaction that those comments deserve? >> right. i think there is a lot of intellectual dishonesty in these two statements that you just mentioned because sanders is basically saying that republicans are unwilling to engage in a debate over foreign policy when it comes to israel and
4:20 am
that is far from the case. we have been doing that for decades. but, instead, you know, what we need to be focusing on are these hateful remarks coming from sitting member of congress who needs to take responsibility for her actions and rhetoric. ed: kelsey bowl larr friend of the show. you recently got changed your named changed from harkness. congratulations. >> thank you. emily: lucky man. ed: good luck. >> thank you. disgraced actor jussie smollett faces decades behind bars accused in that hate crime hoax. david webb has a reality check for the empire star and says he is going to have to pay a big price. david webb is next. emily: and who is elizabeth warren's dream running mate? ed: pete? emily: exactly.

4:47 am
revelation to you. >> well, it confirms that ohr was aware of the fusion gps ties to clinton. he told others in the doj about it they all knew about that but they never told the fisa court about that. then have you ohr and steele talking about dirt they had on candidate trump. it's incredible that you have this clinton agent out there talking to russia intel and not being investigated by the fbi for collusion, yet, they were dropping everything to target trump based on that very information. it shows you this dishonest approach at the doj and fbi had. on top of, this ed, we had earlier this week i'm sure it was coincidental they released the transcript. documents come to judicial watch showing the communications between ohr and steele and gwinn simpson and nellie ohr as well.
4:48 am
his wife worked at fusion gps. they were working hand in glove at doj to get this information this. it's pretty clear steele was desperate to protect his secret relationship but also desperate to get this information acted upon by the doj and fbi because evidently he hated trump. ed: i'm glad you mentioned that because nellie ohr working at fusion gps another thing that raised my eyebrows this part of rod rosenstein working at justice and when he knew about bruce ohr's wife working for fusion gps and what in terms of what rosenstein did. >> my understanding is that ohr suggested that they all knew about it rosenstein suggested he didn't know about it until much later, until frankly mr. ohr was demoted late last year after it became public he was working with fusion gps on the fly. rod rosenstein, you know,

culture unwillingness to recognize bipartisan consent. i see you're in jers ruim, i can recognize the backdrop. why is support for israel not as strong as it once was? >> i think two reasons for that, first of all, i think it's because of the ignorance of the american people about history because they don't know history buy liberal line that israelis are occupying land here in israel that really belongs to palestinians but was know from history that the jews have been in this land for 4,000 years, 4,000 years before there was any mention of palestinians. that whole term palestinian is a made-up term by a roman emperor in 100a.d., people don't know history but frankly people don't know the bible. many jews and christians, god made promise to israel, god's chosen nation, any nation that

5:25 am
tomasar, thank you so much, what an important op-ed, you have written a book called being there as well on topic similar to this. temptation for parents, i've been there, young boys, they don't focus, you're anxious, you want to turn to a solution, why is that maybe not the right thing to do? >> well, effectively we are drugging our children and we say we are parenting by giving them pills and it's a quick fix that silences their pain so what we know is that symptoms like adhd and anxiety are responses to stress and psycho social stressors, family issues, trauma, loss, even too much pressure to achieve and instead of really listening and understanding and being present for our children and helping as i say in my book, helping them to regulate their emotions we are actually stopping the symptoms. >> by silencing symptoms, we

5:28 am
adolescence, make sure you get parent guide and american academy of pediatrics really recommends first having evaluation and talk psych therapy and guidance before you consider medication, medication should not be the first stop, it should be the last stop. >> very good stuff. thank you. the book is being there. check out the op-ed. great stuff. thank you very much. >> thank you very much. >> all right, well, nancy pelosi and house democrats are encouraging illegal immigrants to vote. look at the motion they just voted against, barely believe it. we told you about the cheese challenge where parents threw slices of cheese, that's my little right there. you will never guess what people are doing now.

6:03 am
has been blowing up with this he was also in iowa yesterday, had a large crowd as well and you could see he's firing up this base. pete: this is bernie sanders yesterday, he's hitting the campaign trail hard, his supporters are back the crowds are big, bernie sanders yesterday in iowa city. >> this is a campaign which is not only going to win the democratic nomination. is not only going to defeat donald trump the most dangerous president in modern american history, but this campaign is about more than that. we will no longer tolerate the greed of wall street and the greed of the billionaire class. we'll pass a medicare for all single-payer healthcare systems. >> [applause] >> donald trump, he embarrasses us every single day. ed: i think pete said it best earlier in the show when he said that bernie was socialistic

before it was cool. now, everybody practically whose running for president on the democratic side wants to kind of out-socialize bernie and look at this crowd this was chicago i believe a few days ago. >> and i believe that it was the original gangster. this is the original gangster in the crowd he's now commanding. ed: this is not a couple days before a primary. this is early. pete: that's chicago for bernie sanders, just this week and listen i don't want to over-hype this but a lot of candidates on the democratic field but i was just in vermont as well for breakfast with friends a lot of folks don't like him there who know his policies but there's clearly support and if you're the original gangster, if you were for the things before everyone lumped on voters give you credit for that, and it should have been bernie's primary in 2016, democrats know it was rigged for hillary, he's out on the trail early again he's brushed off initial criticism, he backed up omar on her comments and he's jewish and he said hey she's
6:05 am
making a policy critique and he's playing to the left wing base, the kids are still there with him they love uncle bernie, i'm not saying he will be the nominee but you can't downplay, the media will try, the swell of support this guy has and what a contrast that would be if president donald trump ran against socialistic bernie sanders. >> and there's a question whether he can sustain that right and as the washington post had a headline as bernie sanders launches his second presidential campaign, big crowds but some doubt in early states and the question is also whether those can afford to dismiss and have that doubt. again, we have grant widdard, iowa-based democratic lawyer saying i think the big issue going forward is how much of the support in iowa four years ago was people that bought into his movement and fundamentally didn't want to support hillary clinton. ed: so did he actually fire up the base? i would argue having been out on the road with him back in 2016 he fired up the base. he was saying things that hillary clinton was afraid to say about medicare for all and
6:06 am
other things he went all in if you will and was energizing some of the obama voters who ended up staying home in the general election. >> but in 2016 there's no way he would have said the comments he made now defending the anti-semetic comments like he did, i don't see that where he was. pete: so now his base has moved with him. he's not an outlier he's where the base is and that washington post headline i love the end of it. according to political ties, like you can find anyone to show you doubt. now, i'll give you some additional doubt i was in inventory inventory with voters as i mentioned, talked to citizens in vermont a lot were trump supporters so inherent doubt but they're casting doubt on the policies in vermont and whether they benefited that state here is voters in vermont from yesterday. pete: what do you think of bernie sanders? >> i am not a fan. i loved to vermont six and a half years ago. my liberalism is the longer i live here and i think bernie is part of that problem. >> bernie is not really favorable to the state of vermont. his focus is anti-gun.

6:08 am
ed: this is common, he's trying to claim what did he testify about before and what will he testify about now but you're right a lot of people say that's not standard operating procedure and by the way, the man you see there he runs the house intel committee where cohen was testifying publicly was not intel. he was talking to them behind the scenes but the public testimony attacking the president was a whole different committee so what was he up to? pete: schiff is the leader of the house resistance committee. it's an informal committee but it's big. ed: i haven't heard that one before. >> a newly-formed committee and yes, proper interviews and meetings are standard operating procedure but it seems to me that what we're hearing is that level of obvious coordination, and the time investment that those are what made this outlying -- ed: for what are you going to say basically. >> exactly it goes towards those. pete: i didn't know what that meant either so thank you very much. you know the law. i like that. ed: and dan bongino says look it may say it's standard operating procedure but this looks like
6:09 am
coaching. >> well how is adam schiff still involved in this? this is by more he's been engaged in an ongoing media leak campaign, to tarnish the image of the trump presidency, but the fact that he met with michael cohen there's collusion charges there what was going on? we're entitled to know what they were talking about. why did he need to meet with cohen? the truth is the truth it doesn't need adam schiff to guide it. pete: sure doesn't, it's a great point but i don't know that we'll get that answer because the democrats control the house they won't want to answer that question and the investigations are just going to continue. so, e-mail us friends@foxnews .com. if you're briefing the house would adam schiff give you 10 hours to prepare behind the scenes? >> turning now to your headlines. u.s. backed forces are giving isis fighters a final chance to surrender in syria. forces preparing to complete the final attack on the last isis strong hold in the war-torn nation. syrian forces set to resume operations this afternoon, unless more innocent civilians

6:16 am
it's stark when you look at those numbers. say what you want about access to the ballot and the things that democrats are advocating for but to shoot down a motion that says we don't want illegals voting, what does that say to you? >> look, pete, this absolutely violates one of the core founding principles of this nation. we must and we are about the rule of law. any time we deviate that and in this case politicians deciding on their own to selectively enforce some laws, and not other laws, it absolutely starts to erode at that foundation and in this case, look it's one more, it's clear one more step about open borders and providing amnesty to people who are violating that basic principle of the rule. pete: mark to your point are they about the rule of law then? is it about sovereignty and laws and citizenship, or for the left is it about come on in whoever you are, we're going to open our welfare state and our voting rules? >> that's exactly what it is
6:17 am
pete and tom holman said it best they're more worried about the security of their party than the security of this nation, and it's just horrible. pete: you know, we got new numbers from custom and border protection they released a 300% increase, 300% in the number of family units arrested compared to 2018 so the numbers have sky rocketed the president just tweeted about this minutes ago on that as similar to that number. he said border patrol and law enforcement has apprehended or captured coming into the u.s. and the wall is being built that will greatly help us in the future, and now. when you see an increase like that, does that mean our policies are working or does that mean they're not working? >> well, they're not working. first of all the asylum laws are absolutely broke and then we continue to have judicial activism like the floros case and because of that people are
6:18 am
allowed in this country even when they enter illegally and pete real quick the difference is the numbers are not only expected to be at a million this year but it's very different than it was in the 2000s the demographics. now back then we would remove 90 % of those but today because of the bad laws and policies the family and children 65% of them now are allowed into the united states so this year alone the million anticipated we'll allow 650,000 of them into the interior of the united states and never heard from again and apparently they're going to be able to vote. pete: so there's two sides of it more enforcement at the border with agents as this president and the national guard has led to more arrests but because of the insane laws inside our country and at the border more people are trying to come through. it's compounding itself. >> that's absolutely right, not only more trying to come through which is correct but more are being allowed in. you just heard this week leaders of border patrol saying that 25- 40% of the border patrol agents are pulled off the line
6:19 am
on the humanitarian i call daycare providers, rather than be on the line and stopping the cartels from bringing in bad people and bad things. it's unbelievable. pete: wow just as you send the national guard to free them up they're then tied up in management as opposed to policing the border it feels almost like a circular problem. what's the single most important thing that can be done right now >> so we got to build the wall for that multi-layer strategy of infrastructure, technology and personnel and the right places and congress has to do their job , pete. they can do this in 15 minutes, change laws, stop the incentives and the pull factors and they will stop coming. pete: mark morgan you're a wise man i don't think nancy pelosi will do much about that. thank you very much mark appreciate it. >> semper fi, pete. pete: thank you. well the u.s. army taking its physical fitness test to a new level but do i still have what it takes to be in the army? >> if i'm in generally good shape but i have not trained for this at all what is about to happen? >> you're going to get smoked. pete: he was not lying.

>> ♪ working for a living pete: let's bring in a man who knows a little bit about sixth avenue and working for a living anthony scaramucci. former white house communications director author of the book trump blue collar president and it's national meat ball day. >> i've got some meatballs in my teeth right now is that bad to say? i'm just saying that for a friend. i couldn't stop eating meat balls . these two guys had a restaurants in my hometown since 1978. pete: we're going to get to that let's start with the job numbers because a lot of people looked at 20,000 jobs added in february
6:35 am
and disappointed by that top line number but you say there's hidden good news in there? >> well first of all this is the first time in about 50 years that there are less people available for the job openings, so you have to understand where we are right now in terms of the tightness in the labor market okay? so this is an amazing outcome of the president's policy but the more important thing, the thing that i'm always worried about because i grew up in a blue collar negotiating are wages so you have 3.4% wage increase this is staggering because it's out pacing inflation, so you know, and i know, there's been a 30- year dilemma on wages. one of the things i write in the blue collar president is that the president identified through his instincts, his study of the economy, that he needed to put policies in place to help those people. so that has resoundingly happening, and so people can say whatever they want about the president. he knows exactly what he's doing in terms of the economy, and so the bottom 10% of the employment in the united states is growing
6:36 am
and he's going to start turning those people into aspirational people, and so here is what happens with socialism. you have two tickets you can punch the aspirational ticket or punch the free meal ticket but when you think you can make it for your family as the president is putting this stuff together for them they're going to take the aspirational ticket peter so this is an amazing story about the economy and i think people really got to get it out there more. i think it's incumbent upon the president's people and the surrogates to get out there and explain exactly what's going on in the economy. >> anthony we want to get your thoughts also on michael cohen and really the question of whether he was coached, right and sources say he met with adam schiff and his staff for over 10 hours over four meetings before his testimony. what say you about that? >> you know it's a tough thing for me as i was friends with him i actually met michael through mr. trump going back years ago, i think that it's like very very negative. it's a little slimy to be honest and it's just once again, why people in the united states hate
6:37 am
the swamp and so basically what's happened now, michael was a democrat. he wants to get back into that team, if you will, or into that club, that's a club, if pete hegseth was a democrat they'd be treating him like john f. kennedy do you follow what i'm saying? but in this case now, i don't like it at all so they probably coached him, he probably gather ed all of his information and they got him more comfortable for the temperature testimony and moreover the president lied about a couple of things about whether he wanted a job, he lied about the pardon, and so you're still in there lying, you got to cut it out and here is the last thing okay? he's headed to prison in two months. it's not, it's a very bad look to be doing what he's doing as the president of the united states right now, as he's heading into prison. i don't like any of it so it's a try effect a of dislike. ed: you were talking about a strong economy that may help the president heading into 2020 there's a politico story
6:38 am
that cause our eye advisors urging the president to defer 2020 rallies perhaps he likes being in that environment, it fires him up sometimes he says things and ends up boomeranging on him maybe his advisors want him to wait a little bit before he engages some of the democrats answer what you think the president should do but also work in bill shine because he just left as communications director and you had that job once for a brief amount of time and he's now going to the campaign. >> okay, so first of all, bill, you guys know we worked here with bill. i was within of his anchors for wall street week. i love bill shine he was my recommendation to be the director but the wednesday and i know it was a wednesday because i was only there for one wednesday so i know which wednesday, we had dinner with the president and the residents and we were trying to recruit bill into the white house. so i'm thrilled he's going to be at the campaign and bill is an exceptional guy. i'm just going to give my opinion though. you have to let the president be the president. corey used to say let trump be trump and to me, i think those rallies are energizing.
6:39 am
he's prone to props once in a while, bill deal it's already baked into the cake as it relates to the president and i think that's the way to get the voter turnout and if you look at how he won last time the polling numbers particularly in florida had us not winning those precincts by the percentages that we actually won them and that's a direct attribution in my opinion to the president, his rallies and his ability to spunk people up so advice. that sounds like swamp-like. ed: micro-managing. >> you can't let him go. pete: to that point if he had listened to certain advisors during the campaign he wouldn't be president. >> no question about that . as we all know there were establishment people inside the campaign, and people that ended up inside the white house, don't like him very much and that's a shame. ed: we don't want you to leave just yet, anthony you teed it up you and your wife will be here to sample the meatballs. >> now turning to your headlines, the homeless veteran

each other. ed? so true. ed: awesome, you did a little move over there. all right, on wednesday, weld county, in colorado became the third county there to pass a resolution declaring it a second amendment sanctuary county. this gun sanctuary movement is in response to the red flag bill being debated in the state's capitol. the bill has sheriffs across colorado saying they will not enforce the gun control bill if it is passed. ed: joining us now to weigh in is weld county colorado sheriff steve reams. good morning, sheriff. good morning. ed: i understand as we've heard a lot about sanctuary cities in say california where they say we're not going to follow we're not going to enforce immigration laws but you're saying you're kind of turning it on its head as i understand it and saying look if they pass this broader bill that restricts gun rights you're going to say look i'm following the constitution, it's a sanctuary city for that, as opposed to following this gun control is that right? >> that's exactly correct. what we're saying is if you pass
6:47 am
an unconstitutional law, our oath as commissioners or as myself as the sheriff, we're going to follow our constitutional oath first, and we'll do that balancing act on our own. >> and sheriff it's our understanding that that was passed unanimously by the commission. what are the arguments you're hearing from community people one way or another as you've argued here it puts your agents at undue risk, if you were to comply with that, so what are the voices of the community saying? >> well the community has been largely supportive of what we're doing. the feedback has been very positive. i live in a very conservative county so you would kind of expect that to be the case, but essentially what people understand is that we're talking about mental health issues, not gun issues, and the bill even though it's called the extreme risk protection order, does nothing to address mental health all it does is talks about taking guns away from people who might be a significant risk to themselves or others but again, it doesn't address the true issue which is mental health and
6:48 am
that's really where we're trying to point the focus. ed: sheriff we want to point out it's not just your state as you probably know there's at least seven states we found around the country that have this sanctuary , colorado, illinois, maryland, nevada, new mexico, oregon, and washington state as well. what do you say to critics who are going to say wait a second when it comes to immigration you and others will say enforce the law you got to follow the law and in this case i understand you want to fall back on the constitution it's a wonderful idea but that you're selectively picking here immigration you're on one side, on guns you're on another. >> well in this particular issue, it's more for due process than anything. i think the supreme court has shown time and time again that they do have the ability to restrict someone's second amendment rights in some instances especially when you're dealing with mental health. the problem with the bill in colorado is that it does an ex parte hearing so the person being accused of having an issue isn't even at the court hearing when their rights are deemed to
6:49 am
be taken away. at least temporarily and that's truly where the biggest issue with this bill lies is the fact that the person doesn't get to come in and defend themselves from the word go. >> right and if there's one good thing to come of this, sheriff, it is the fact that this is now receiving national attention to that bill because that ex parte hearing without the benefit of presence plus the no need to give notice before there's raids and that absolutely that's putting them at risk. >> yeah, that absolutely puts all law enforcement officers at risk. the idea of being given an order and told hey, go take these guns , from a person who has no idea you're coming, whose already been deemed to potentially have some kind of mental illness, the idea is to treat the person, not the gun. ed: sheriff, steve reams in colorado we will follow the story appreciate you coming in da thanks for having me on. ed: still ahead we told you we were going to celebrate national meatball day pete has been
