jillian: so fun when you were a kid suck the helium out of a balloon and your voice would go all crazy like that. todd: made it onto the campaign trail. guaranteed not to be the craziest thing we see in 2020. jillian: true, true. have a good day, everyone. ♪ ♪ ♪ steve: look at that it's already the 22nd day of august. summer is coming to a close. ainsley: back in the city. people go out of town for the summer. brian: darker earlier. this way when you get up in the dark, too. ainsley: right. brian: and really cold in the morning. ainsley: that's why we love fall because it gets darker sooner. brian: revenue we get from raking. steve: when is the last time you did yard work? brian: i watch other people do it. ainsley: we had his friends
out on the plaza yesterday cooking and had you to go do radio. we talked to them in the after the show show. we said how is his yard? they said he doesn't do it. he hires someone to do it. so nice try, buddy. steve: you hire somebody to do everything? brian: absolutely. i had my butler here a short time ago he had to run out and get me coffee. steve: could he bring us coffee, too. ainsley: is his name beauregard. brian: maybe. i basically won the contest. jillian shouldn't even show up with grilling. ainsley: you cheated. brian: he couldn't believe the talent. ainsley: he even said they have a supper club on their street and that brian was jonessing to get in it. you and dawn want to the get in it so badly. you get in it and you are supposed to cook a meal when you are hosting and you catered it. brian: we lost track of time. steve: i'm surprised you are here. brian: i could have had a
substitute. steve: you never know. jillian is going to be cooking today. she has innovative recipe. ainsley: who is going to be better my fish or her vegetarian meal. brian: we will see whether she comes in second or not. steve: your friends cannot win the contest. it was a contest for all the hosts. brian: we had a food contest and the people that voted don't get to taste the food. this is kind of a unique series of events. ainsley: we apologize in advance because i have a feeling today's show is going to be off the wheels a little bit. can we talk about news? steve: let's talk about news. yesterday we told you the administration was going to reveal that the trump administration was going to move to change the flores settlement that was reached back in 97 by a judge. figured out all sorts of things on how to detain children. in the beginning it was all about children. and i think 2015 and a judge during the obama years changed it to include families because the obama administration was building a detention facility. well now the administration
is saying you know what? those things were temporary. we're going to have permanent rules to establish that the fact that we can hold families together indefinitely until they get their day in court. brian: the goal is not to hold families indefinitely. the goal is toe bring in organizations to a situation in a situation out of control. people were abusing it. they were grabbing kids. third of the cases, that were not theirs. recycling those kids in order to get into the interior of the country in 20 days. now, how bad is this more than 432,000 members of family units have been taken into custody from october through july. how much worse is it last year? increase of 456%. that's the definition of a crisis. ainsley: so they come across our border. we put them in a detention facility. if they have kids with them. they can be released right now after 20 days. the president is saying look, the majority of these people are good people. what if, in that mix, is a
criminal. what if in that mix is a killer. >> he is saying we need to hold them together because some of these kids aren't even their parents. they are lying to get across the border. he is saying let's just hold them together until they get their day in court. brian: killers and criminals bad, but what's worse is people abusing the system to break the asylum system just grabbing a kid because i would rather be in america rather than another country. that's not the way it works. steve: this is a loophole the president regards. it's catch and release he says. what it will do is keep, if it is a family, going to keep them together until they get their day in court. the maximum time they stay until they get their day in court. nonetheless, democrats say the new regulations will traumatize children. >> i think that the trump administration people sit around every single day thinking of new ways to be cruel to these migrants. >> immigrants families and specifically kids. they will be held, literally indefinitely at the pleasurable of the trump
administration. kind of like guantanamo. >> they would rip kids from thboosmsboosms of their mothers. shall. steve: it's until they get their day in court. brian: they estimate is about two months is what the system needs. they have 900,000 people in backlog. here is what some of the headlines building on pundits said the "new york times" call it migrant families would face indefinite detention under a new trump rule. "the washington post" says the trump administration's new rule could prove deficit stating for migrant children at the border. u.s.a. today which is still free trump administration, to hotel stayers, trump administration announces plan that would let it detain undocumented children indefinitely. steve: it's not indefinitely. kevin mcaleenan yesterday said they were trying to get this gone through as the quickly as possible until they get their day in court and find out whether or not they get valid asylum claim.
ainsley: president reminded focketds hey this has been going on past administrations. i was the one that put families back together. the previous administration was doing this, too. jeh johnson who was the dhs secretary under president obama agreed he was on with chris wallace on "fox news sunday" he said we did detain children alone and some families were together. we thought it was necessary at the time. here's a flashback of what jeh johnson. keep in mind he worked for president obama. this is what he had to say. >> well, we expanded family detention and then we ran into the issue of the flores case. i disagreed then with the ruling in the flores case because i think that our border patrol and our immigration enforcement people need those cools available to deal with situations like this. steve: situations like this. brian: so just keep in mind, if you don't like president trump or didn't vote for president trump, or you don't like his policies, the guy that had to deal with these policies, the same issues at the border, not nearly as bad. jeh johnson said the flores
ruling hurts whether a was happening at the border and on top of that sent the wrong message to central and south america. and the apprehensions sank from 68,000 in 2014 to 48 -- they sank to 40,000 as soon as they found a way to address. this. steve: right. we are going to be talking to mark morgan he is the acting cbp commissioner just about an hour from now. meanwhile i'm sure you saw a couple days ago dr. jill biden was up in new hampshire. and she wants her husband to be the next president of the united states. but she said something that has a lot of people going wait a minute, is she saying this the way it sounds? listen. >> your candidate might be better on, i don't know, healthcare than joe is. but you have got to look at who is going to win this election and maybe you have to swallow a little bit and say i personally like so and so better, but, your bottom line has to be that we have
to beat trump. steve: we have to beat trump and joe biden is the safe choice to beat trump according to his wife. ainsley: so confident in her husband. i watched the sean hannity show basically telling you as the voter to go to the polls, hold your nose, take a little swallow and then vote for her husband. brian: guess what? even though jay instantly inslee jumped out yesterday. steve: who. brian: governor of washington. 22 people want to be the nominee. one of which is cory booker. he also sounded somewhat disturbing that an automatic nomination process should take place. >> the next leader of our party can't be someone that is a safe bet oh, let's just find the person who can triangulate and get this done so we can beat donald trump. i'm running in this election because i know we can do more than that. ainsley: he said that two days after jill biden said
that he didn't mention by name but is he polling at 2%. steve: i don't think joe biden is the nominee, i don't think cory booker is probably going to be his vice president. cory booker also in iowa yesterday said every election since before carter never had anybody leading this far in the polls went onto the president of the united states. so, in other words, joe biden, according to cory booker's metric will not be president of the united states. he might be the safe choice but he is not going to win according to him. brian: joe concha weighed in the safe choice traditionally isn't really the choice. >> the safe choice never wins. let's just look back the last couple presidential elections, hillary clinton safe choice, 2016, lost. mitt romney safe choice, 2012, lost. john kerry in '04 lost. gore 2,000 lost. bob dole 1996 lost. all chosen by the establishment. all the safe choice and the best chance to beat the
other candidate and all didn't win because they weren't the bold candidate. they didn't have the clear message. brian: that's where we stood in the 2020 election. we will see what happens today. meanwhile if you were continuation glintingling to bee everybody can dance. steve: everybody can't dance. that's why dancing with the stars has been such a phenomenon for a long time. they are now entering the 28th year. this is a reality show that gets a lot of publicity from who they book. and they announce who is going to be on. yesterday they got a lot of publicity because it was announced that man right there, former press secretary for donald trump sean spicer would be "dancing with the stars." ainsley: tom bergeron long time host of "dancing with the stars" disappointed in the casting this year. he writes on social media a few months ago will i
offered suggestions for season 28. chief new england them was my hope that "dancing with the stars" would be a joyful respite from our exhausting political climate and free of inevitably divisive bookings from any political afaking united states. any party affiliation. i left that lunch tha convinced that we were in agreement. subsequently and rather obviously, a decision was made to, as we say often in hollywood. go in a different direction. brian: just feature on sean spicer's hamstrings and quads. ainsley: i agree with you it is a respite from politics to see them in a positive, fun light. brian: spicer is going to be in lycra. that's the story. [laughter] steve: the real story is mr. spicer is going to be joining us on the couch. he is going to be sachetting over at 7:30 this morning. and we are going to ask him about the blow back from all sorts of corners regarding
his casting on "dancing with the stars." ainsley: i hate that tom bergeron got political. steve: what's going on. they have had political people on before. tom delay was on. rick perry. tucker carlson was on. brian: i have met tucker carlson. good damagesser. jillian: sheriff's deputy shot by a sniper right outside his station. >> jillian: 21-year-old deputy angel is expected to be okay after making that terrifying radio call. his bullet-proof vest is credited with saving his life. the los angeles county sheriff's office says the investigation is ongoing and no one has been arrested. two u.s. service members killed in afghanistan. at this hour their identities and other details about their deaths are unknown. 14 troops have been killed

recession. >> they say potential recession on horizon. >> recession. >> recession. steve: you get the idea, some in the mainstream media focus on a potential recession. another crises is being ignored. that is the massive student loan debt that america's college students are running up and taxpayers could be on the hook. professor brian brenberg is the chairman of the program in business and finance at the kings college in new york city and he joins us right now. professor, good morning to you. >> good morning. steve: first of all, let's start we are going to talk about the student debt threat but regarding recession yesterday, the president himself pushed back. look, we are not even close to that. >> we can speculate will recession. i think a lot of the talk has been overblown. we can talk right now about real financial problems that americans face if we don't do something about are going to put us on the hook for hundreds of billions of dollars over the next decade. so you can speculate all you want. let's talk about real issues that exist right now. steve: okay. why are so many people defaulting and why are so many people with their student loans so far behind.
>> yeah, well, we have got this weird dynamic in the united states when the federal government has been pushing students into college education because we have always thought of it as the road to success. steve: sure. >> what ends up happening here is students increasingly are getting degrees they don't need for the job that they have. and the jobs they have aren't paying enough to pay for those degrees. and what happens is they can't pay those student loans and what the government is actually projecting now they used to say giving student loans is a profit center for us. now think are actually saying no, no, no. taxpayers are on the hook for potentially hundreds of billions of dollars of unpaid loans. steve: cbo predicts default loan forgiveness student loan could cost taxpayers $300 billion over the next 10 years. you were talking about income based repayment program where depending on how much you make that's how much you pay back. i read, i think it was in the "wall street journal" yesterday, that apparently a lot of people are paying it
back 1% a year which would take 100 years to pay back. >> as long as you are making those minimum payments, your credit situation is fine as a borrower. the problem is you never pay off that money. and with this income based repayment, after 20 years, if you have stayed current at least with those minimum payments, that debt is wiped away. which means you never pay it. but taxpayers absorb the cost. so people who have never gone to college, never participated in this end up paying for these college educations that don't give you a job, that gives you enough money to pay for the thing. steve: we are pretty close to free college for all. >> we talked about this happening in the future. folks, we are at that moment right now. understand we are halfway there. steve: holy cow. somebody who works with students who are running up a big debt brian brenberg, thank you very much for joining us live here. meanwhile, ms. nevada claims she was stripped of her title and banned from a pageant because she is a conservative. but she is going to fight and she is going to join us next on "fox & friends." ♪ she's got the look

and encourage young women to just be themselves and be different. and as the time went on and i had conversations over the phone with the coordinator and then emails back and forth it became very clear that there was a clear political bias towards me. other contestants posted things that were maybe more on the liberal side and nothing was ever done. and, yet, the moment i donned that trump 2020 hat, it was all going. ainsley: now, the statement from the pageant says katie williams is distorting the facts. none of this had to do with her personal political views. the ms. america is no politics pageant. ms. williams acknowledged both verbally and in writing she understood these rules before she was accepted into the pageant. some people might say the rules are the rules. what's your response? >> yeah, i understand, i definitely know their prerogative and what they said. i have definitely been reading it. like i said, they can say they are apolitical all they want. however, when they have other contestants posting
more liberal views and nothing has been done to them, you know, they are still wearing their crown and sash. and days before when i'm supposed to be in a hotel right now, they actually just stripped my crown, stripped my title. ainsley: i watched your interview this morning on "fox & friends first." you said you were confused your director was encouraging you to do this. explain that. >> when we first started this pageanted are road, she would call me on the phone and talk. we would talk about our political biases towards other things. and we would talk about what we agreed on and what we disagreed on. and it was actually very good conversations. she would turn around and email me and tell me how she was disappointed. she wasn't happy with what i was posting. you know, take it down. separate the pages, which i did do. so i do actually have another page. you know, and then after a while i just didn't feel right talking to her on the phone anymore, which is why i refused to speak to her anymore. i actually requested for everything in writing over and over and over again until she finally did.
ainsley: why do you think they caved? >> you know, i think that they just didn't want -- i really think it's honestly my support of the president. there is many different reasons why but i think that just having that kind of there. i don't think is he a controversial figure but other people do. ainsley: you wrote on twitter about antifa and also wrote on instagram you posted that picture of president trump. regardless of what's going on. regardless of you who you feel. regardless of who sits in the office. as long as i serve i will support our commander-in-chief. now isn't the time to lay blame towards anyone but the guilty party. mental illness is real. gun control doesn't fix it. you were asking folks to pray for pittsburgh. thank you so much, katie juror, for being with us and serving our country. i know you are a sergeant first class in the army national guard. god bless you. >> thank you. ainsley: thank you.

unequivocally no. he should have stayed on the committee and do what he do or did what he did. >> whether a i really don't like about it is the backlash. why is it that trump supporters have to get backlash? what happened to equal rights for all? why can't we be a part of something without getting backlash because if they are able to support whoever they choose to support, why can't we support who we choose to support? brian: here is what chris long said, former defensive end and son of you whoy long. he said he held, meaning steven ross, a fundraiser for a guy protesters players sons of bitches that's why he said he shouldn't be on the committee. >> stop it with the antics. go back in everybody's past and see what they said. i get tired of that, too. he said this now he have to step down. stop it. let us all come together. if they are going to fight this social justice, if they want equality, come together, let's do it. but ostracizing,
criticizing, going back, this tit-for-tat is time to stop it. ainsley: miami dolphins spokesperson said espn made the decision last week and informed the nfl and members of the committee that he was going to step aside from the group and continue to focus his efforts. he believes in and is fully committed to the work that has been done by the group and will always be a passionate supporter and tireless advocate for social justice causes. the fight for equal rights and education. >> good for him. but i wouldn't have stepped down. >> it's really sad. it's really really sad that somebody can have a passion of wanting to do something but because they support somebody that somebody don't like or support this president, a president that is doing a imagine if i i a imai sent job for all. >> especially when it comes to equal rights. >> exactly. steve: all he did was try to hold a fundraiser and people are trying to destroy his businesses by calling for boicketsd. let's take a look at a new

allowing family detentions to continue inel definitely at least legally, effectively scrapping the flores settlement. it was unveiled on wednesday it. will be published in the federal register tomorrow. and effective in 60 days, again, if approved by a judge. the concern, guys, is and has been for quite some time to be honest, that traffickers and others are effectively gaming our immigration and slirm systems by using children to get into the country. administration officials say the truth is the flores agreement made that problem worse. >> no child should be a pawn in a scheme to manipulate our immigration system, which is why the new rule eliminates the incentive to exploit children as a free ticket or as one gentleman in guatemala told me passport for migration to the united states. >> kevin mcaleenan right there about the idea of quote indefinite detention. benny thompson from the great state of mississippi chairman says terminating the flores settlement is illegal and goes against our
longstanding american values about the treatment of children. however, the president continues to insist this, frankly, is about deterrence and not cruelty. >> when they see you can't get into the united states or when they say if you do get into the united states they will be brought back to their country, it won't matter if they get in or not because we are doing that. they won't come. and many people will be saved. ngsd. >> and that's the idea, keeping people from coming here in the first place unless they do so lawfully. that is to say seeking asylum and in a third party country or coming through a port of entry or even applying, by the way in their countries of origin. don't forget very great day today here at the white house at 4:30. bob could you sey, 94 years young, former celtics standout will receive the presidential medal of freedom. i, for one, am looking forward to that. brian: important to bring up among the democrats using
this -- among the people been on the couch against the flores easement amendment. he wanted to expand family detention and did. and ran into the issue of the flores case. he said i disagreed then with the ruling in the flores case because i think our border patrol and immigration enforcement people need those tools to deal with situations like this. what happens is it lured families here with kids because they thought this is our green light to get into the country and in many cases not show up when i had chance to plead tore asylum be in already. being accused and things went up 450%. steve: keep in mind the flores settlement was agreed to in the judicial branch back in '97 and it applied largely only to children who appeared in the country unaccompanied. and then in 2015 a judge ruled requirements applied to kids with their families after the obama administration started
building the detention facilities. the worry is that if these new regulations which we will probably see in 60 days do not perfectly match the original judge's settlement, they could throw it out. ainsley: well, the president is just saying the majority of these individuals, once they are released, after 20 days don't show up for their court hearings. so he is just saying we are going to keep families together, we are going to keep them in these detention facilities. brian: we can't get to them in 20 days. that's the bottom line. these democrats making these statements know it. tom homan knows the reality at the border. listen what they did and now would potentially do. >> we have briefed congress for two and a half years on the flores settlement agreement. and that was the main magnet that brought these people here. and fy 14 and 15, during the first surge, when we built the first family detention center, we held families for about 40, 45 days. maybe up to 50. guess what?
90% of them lost their case in front of a judge. we put them on an airplane and sent them home. guess what happened? the numbers dropped signature contactually. then have you got the ninth circuit comes out and says you can only hold them 20 days. i told the court if you make that decision, we can't hold them long enough to see a judge. you will see a surge like you never saw before. i was told by the courts i was a fear monger. brian: and he wasn't. he was a forecaster. because that's exactly what happened. steve: kevin mcaleenan said yesterday if they are going to keep the families together. are they going to need more bed space and he said no because he expects fewer people are going to be coming when they find out that they have closed that particular loophole. brian: as the president said, it's all about deterrence. ainsley: well, the media at first they pushed russia and then they pushed racism and then they pushed recession. listen to this. >> recession jitters. president trump said to be rattled as economic alarm bells cause a wild week on wall street. >> there are indicators that the u.s. could be headed for a recession. >> there are some rough
waters ahead, maybe a recession. >> a potential recession on the hoards. >> recession. >> recession. >> recession. steve: you get the idea the white house has been pushing back. look, we are not even close to it. then, out of nowhere, yesterday in altoona, iowa, a democrat who is running for president, john delaney said this about that. >> i hope it's not like, you know, it feels like some democrats are cheering on a recession because they want to stick it to trump. i don't want a recession because i don't want these workers in here to face a recession. but i worry that trump's policies are bringing one on. >> i'm not going to name names, but you just get a sense. brian: the bottom line is the president didn't help himself saying that there would be no recession by saying by the way i'm looking at a payroll tax and rumors behind the scenes that the president was getting worried about it. when he came forward and said yeah, i was considering a payroll tax after hogan gidley said they weren't at the administration level. and then the next day he
said i don't think i need that so people are wondering why would you want a payroll tax cut if you didn't fear a recession? and yesterday he backtracked off that. steve: look, when you have certain tools in your toolbox, given, you know, what could happen in the future, and for the president, particularly in election year, you always think okay, what are our contingency plans? the president made it clear yesterday, nothing on the table right now. ainsley: joe biden is taking credit for it on the campaign trail. is he saying that it was because of president obama that our economy. steve: he is not getting enough credit. ainsley: that's right. steve: brian brenberg was with us just about an hour ago. he said there are more important issues on america's agenda than this. watch. >> look, we can speculate about recession. i think a lot of the talk has been overblown. >> right. >> we can talk right now about real financial problems that americans face if we don't do something about are going to put us on the hook for hundreds of billions of dollars over the
next decade. can you speculate all you want, let's talk about real issues that exist right now. the federal government has been pushing students into college education because we have always thought of it as the road to success. >> sure. >> students increasingly are getting degrees they don't need for the job that they have. and the jobs they have aren't paying enough to pay for those degrees. and what happens is they can't pay those students loans. steve: and what happens is they end up paying off about 1% a year which means it would take 100 years to pay off some student loans. unbelievable. brian: all right. so, what do you think? are we headed towards a recession? there is this story right now out on drudge the first story that said we overestimated job gains by the tune of 500,000 jobs. i don't know where that number came from. but, let's find out what the healthy economy is we are about to find out. ainsley: let us know what you think email@example.com. hand it over to jillian who has headlines for us. jillian: good morning to you. let's beginning with this story we are following a hotel cook is under arrest

irving knows the smugglers know, and those trying to enter the country illegally know i grab a kid that's a u.s. passport into the united states. we can only 20 days that's not long enough to go through the immigration proceedings. that's catch and release. that's the significant driver of this the first 10 months of this fiscal year over 470,000 family members that's more than tripled any other previous year in history. it's a crisis. this new rule is going to address. this. steve: okay. so, mark, what will happen is these family units will be detained as a unit. two questions for you. one, some critics say it's indefinite, which makes it sound like it could be 25 years. or 25 months or something. is it indefinite and, also, if, for instance, somebody is posing as a family member, and they are not part of the family, will they still be kept together? >> so, two great questions. the first one indefinite. that's just a false narrative. the three of have you been
doing a great job. history shows -- remember, the family residential centers, this process, this isn't new. this is actually created in 2015 under the previous administration, under the family residential centers. so it's not indefinite and history shows it's about 40 or 50 days. that's what we are talking about from 20 to about 50 to 60 days and what we are talking about. it's not indefinite. it's just long enough to go through the immigration process. then with your other question, no. if you present as a fake family, if you are not a true family, yeah, you will be separated there. those trying to come across as a fake family, those adults will be prosecuted. ainsley: is this rule going to be implemented. the left is not happy with this and it's going to get caught up in the courts. >> another great question. we are anticipating that it's absolutely going to -- we will see some lawsuits like we have seen any other attempt initiative to stem this flow by this president's administration. but i'm hopeful that we're going to get this passed. we need -- the american people need to understand this is a game changer. this needs to get passed.
this will absolutely eliminate a significant part of this crisis. brian: by the way, jeh johnson, used to work for the obama administration. jeh johnson knew the flores agreement was a problem, ruling was a problem. he knew this was going to turn out this way. so this is not a democrat-republican issue. is it? >> brian, that's absolutely right. and there is another congresswoman had you on a few minutes ago who said this is a new concept or a new rule. it's not. this was actually -- the family residential centers that we are talking about where these individuals are going to be held, families high level of care, families together. that was create created in 2015 under the obama administration. so it's just a false narrative. steve: before you go, give us an update. you know, we knowed when president suggested there could be tariffs on mexico, unless they cracked down, and then they started to crack down and the numbers went down, how many people are still streaming across our southern border? >> the numbers are drastically gone down. from may to july, 43%. this month we are seeing
another right now 20% reduction. >> wow. steve: for a total of how many, mark? >> so right now, july the numbers went down to 80,000. so, if you remember, back in may it was 144,000. last month in july, down 82,000. it's a game changer. mexico unprecedented support. they are coming together as true equal partners. more than they ever have. they are seeing this as a regional crisis. this is absolutely because of this president and this administration. brian: yeah. they say they don't know if they're on board with the flores agreement if they are going to adhere to that keeping families together indefinitely which we know is going to be less than two months. we will see what they say on that. >> that's right. brian: all right. mark, i know how hard you are working. thanks. >> thank you. ainsley: two toddler brothers team up for a greatest escape and even greater celebration. >> i did it.

[cheers and applause] brian: morning show on another channel? i had no idea. steve: we are busy at the time. hey, look, sean spicer, former white house press secretary and senior advisor and spokesman for american first action pac joins us live. congratulations, you are going to be on the new season of "dancing with the stars." >> i can't believe you are saying that. ainsley: are you nervous. >> oh god, yeah. ainsley: it's going to be really hard it? >> is going to be really hard but it's going to be fun. steve: are you good dancer? >> no, a horrible dancer. i got approached when i left the white house it didn't work out for a lot of reasons both ply political businesses and consulting firm are taken off.
brian: and wrote a book. >> thank you. i finally have time in my life. i thought you know what? it's going to be fun. it's the kind of entertainment that i can actually encourage my kids and family to watch. and it's what we need more of, which is good wholesome entertainment and i get way out of my comfort zone and do something that's totally new to me. brian: does reince priebus have to sign off on it? >> i don't think he would have, no. steve: you are actually going to dance a little with ainsley at the conclusion of this segment in all goes well. >> okay. ainsley: lord help us. gosh. you have to show me some moves. >> this is my first lesson. steve: listen, so after you were named as one of the new dancers, the long-time host tom bergeron came out on twitter and he put out a statement. and it reads this and we would like your reaction. he says a few months ago during a lunch with "dancing with the stars" new executive producer i offered suggestions for this new season. chief among them was my hope that the show would be a joyful respite from our exhausting political climate and free of inevitably
divisive bookings from any party affiliations. i left that lunch convinced we were in agreement. subsequently and rather obviously, a decision was made, to as we often say in hollywood, go in a different direction. it looks like he is not happy that you are there. >> well, it could have been christie brinkley. [laughter] i'm kidding. yeah, look, he is entitled to his opinion. tom has been, you know, this is 28 seasons. i always thought he did a great job as host. and i share his sentiment. this should be two hours of politics-free. more than that, and i hope what this show is at the end of the season is an example of people of a bunch of different background getting together, leaving politics aside and having a good time in a civil and respectful way. and so my hope and goal is that at the end of the season, tom looks back and says you know what? we need more of this, not less of it. we need more bringing people together of different background and saying hey, come together, show how much you actually can enjoy each
other's company, have a conversation, be together, dance around, enjoy each other because i think too much of what we have in this country right now is every conversation has to turn into politics. ainsley: yes. >> and as much as i have enjoyed that most of my life, think there is times when we want to as a family, as an organization, as friends, sit down and have an enjoyable politics-free conversation. ainsley: he got political. 50% of the country is going to be watching and they are conservative and they support this president and this administration. >> i need their vote. [laughter] ainsley: what are you going to say to him you see him the first time? >> i'm focused on working hard and learning how to dance and then doing the best job that i can. so that's where i'm going to focus my time and effort on. brian: it's up to him, too. my goodness. he doesn't have to talk to you about politics. he can talk to you about what you do in spare time. talk about training for the actual event? is somebody on abc going to do a feature on you and the history of the republican party and spicer uncovered? >> if it's nice, i wouldn't
be opposed to that. look, i had a chance to get together with the cast and the crew and the dancers, and they are just some amazing people with various and different background. steve: so some of them have reached out to you? >> we have obviously spent a lot of time together over the last 48 hours. it's been so heart-warming to have people say hey, i would really like to learn more about your background and i read about this or heard about this. i'm saying the same thing about them. tell me about this experience. so, i think it's going to be a really great cast and, as i said, i think that with the diversity that's in that cast, we actually could be a great example of you who you can do things going forward. steve: they are now in the 28th season, tom delay, prominent republican was featured one time. had you rick perry as well. >> yep. >> so if they look at politics, there have been some very prominent republicans.
>> and a lot of folks have done very well. so, again, i think i'm looking forward to getting away from politics for a while. a couple hours every week and hopefully entertaining a lot of folks and not embarrassing my family and my daughter. >> who is your partner going to be? >> i don't know yet. if ainsley works out, maybe we can make a deal. >they don't tell you. this year is very different than years' past. early next week you go to where you are going to rehearse and they show up and it's a surprise to each one of the cast members. steve: boot camp? >> yeah. brian: this guy caramel brown on queer eye? he came out and support. i just found out about the cast. i will tell you this i'm excited to sit down with him meaning you and engage in a respectful conversation. the only way things get better is if we try to educate those who have different points of view than us. and because he said something positive, he got blow back. >> yeah. and we actually had a great conversation well before the statement came out the first
two nights. he is a really interesting guy. a therapist by training. goes out and tries to help people. we clearly don't agree politically. but i think is he absolutely right. sitting down and having a conversation where you can talk about, a, other things than politics is great, but, b, even when you do, do so in a way that we are trying to understand the other side. i mean to ainsley's point. 50% of this country for the most part are on one side and roughly 1 rough 50% are on e other. what we need to do more of listener to what makes these people -- you are not bad because you are one side or the other. you have certain values or rachessed a certain way. i think what we need more of is exactly what he is talking about. tell me why you think the way you do or how are and why you believe it. we learn and grow as people when we do that. ainsley: all right. are you ready? are you ready to show what you have got? come on. come on. >> i know brian is jealous.

brian: prosecutors in washington state dealing with a new challenge verdicts from juries. steve: the state becoming the first in the nation to require judges to investigate possible implicit bias among the jurors. ainsley: okay. our next guest warns it could run the risk of setting guilty people free. brian: i don't see how. here to explain fox news legal analyst and author of for the coming book. witch-hunt, the story of the greatest mass delusion in american political history. does this concern you or hearten you to think we are going to purity test for juries. >> it is equally as absurd as sean spicer on dancing with the stars. to put it in perspective here. a juror voted to convict african-american woman went to the defense afterwards. she had post conviction
remorse which is fairly typical. she said oh, you know, my fellow jurors didn't like the arguments i was making. the defense said ah-ha this is implicit racial bias and the supreme court in washington state bought it saying now judges must hold full blown hearings to determine implicit racial bias. that's an impossible standard. brian: it is. >> now we want judges to intuit the inner feelings they have to be clairvoyant or tell path thick to do it. steve: after a jury reach as verdict they have to figure whether or not there was bias. >> if there is a claim by defense concept. brian: if you are a defense lawyer and you lose why wouldn't you claim that. >> of course you would. this has a severe chilling effect. think of it now. if you are a juror, you are going to be afraid to disagree with a fellow juror of color because then you will be acaused of implicit racial bias. if this case ever actually
gets to the u.s. supreme court, they will laugh it out of building. ainsley: what about in california? they are testing out a system where they eliminate bail for certain criminals? >> yeah. they want to use, in some jurisdictions, a mathematical algorithm instead of using a judge. algorithms have their bias as well. in fact, some instances have shown that it's actually more punishing to an accused individual who will be denied bail based on the algorithm. look. bail has long existed for hundreds of years going back to great britain. there is a couple of good reasons for it. first of all, ten sures public safety and second of all it assures the accused is going to show up for trial. judges are in the best position to determine that and they always have. sure there is disparity and iniquity. but to leave it to mathematical algorithms or in some jurisdictions to just eliminate bail whatsoever is obviously dangerous. brian: when are we going to get the horowitz report as
we go back to russia real quick? >> it's completed and durham, the u.s. attorney all the transcripts of 100 plus witnesses and a million pages of documents and so forth. so it's now going through a classification review. you can bet that christopher wray, the fbi director is fighting tooth and nail to hide and conceal and cover up everything. it's time christopher wray leave the fbi. steve: all right. gregg jarrett author of the new book "witch-hunt" comes out soon. ainsley: you can preorder it now. >> yes. thank you. i will give you guys free copies. brian: absolutely. or at least a discount. steve: thank you, gregg. ainsley: 49 minutes after the top of the hour. we are getting a taste of the kentucky state fair. griff jenkins is trying everything from the deep fried oreos to a cajun corn dog and we are "fox news live" louisville. brian: we are checking his cholesterol, next. ♪ i

getting on a dance floor. i've seen you dance at a wedding before. steve: yes you have. ainsley: you do a lot of bouncing and acrobatic. brian: he does work on a trampoline. ainsley: the best dancer i ever seen is elaine on "seinfeld." steve: that is exactly right. coming up at the hour challenge on the grill continues today. jillian will be preparing something. she is trying to beat all of us. you have to stick around. it is a unique recipe. brian: never seen jillian so nervous. she wants to win. steve: they're laughing back there. brian: she is so focused. ainsley: i was told when i cooked fish i was definitely losing. you came out with fish and clams. brian: angry clams. ainsley: angry clams. you're losing too. you didn't even cook. you got friends to do it. brian: i supervised. i brought in friends. ainsley: jillian is vegetarian.
sorry, jillian, you might lose. steak and potatoes. steve: steak and potatoes, hard to go wrongers use your own cow? >> no. it was from the store. we have done that in the past. news of the day yesterday, the department of homeland security announced a permanent fix to the flores settlement. that was always temporary. the administration will come out with a set of rules, so the migrant families can be kept completely intact through the adjudication process. the flores agreement says after 20 days you have to let the families go. this will change that until they get the day in court. ainsley: the max couple time they are there is 60 days. not indefinite. brian: in the proposal that lindsey graham put forward that was getting some democratic support, he talked about the flores rule, how it was preventing them from enforcing the border, incentivizing those in central america to come here, because in 20 days you get to stay here.
but nobody on the left thought they would miss an opportunity to say the president doesn't like children. watch. >> i think that the trump administration, people sit around every single day thinking of new ways to be cruel to these migrants? immigrant families and specifically kids, they will be held, literally indefinitely. at the pleasure of the trump administration. kind of like guantanamo. >> pursue immigration reform with common sense and compassion. instead of this cruelty that this administration continues to show. steve: that was the announcement. the department of homeland security is coming up with permanent regulations. i think they will announce them officially on friday. then there will be 60 days where you can make public comments. they will undoubtedly be sued. nonetheless the president yesterday, as he was heading to louisville, kentucky, made it cleaver where he stands on all of this. >> if you remember president obama had separation.
i'm the one that brought them together. this new rule will do even more to bring them together. but it was president obama that had the separation. i am the one that kept the families together. brian: so, what he is trying to say is, also steve, marge morgan told us in the break, there is time for public comment. they asked congress to do it. congress didn't do it. they put put it up public comment. each one of public comments had to be answered. steve: he said over 100,000. brian: they're ready to present. courts will take action on every executive order the president puts out. maybe the president could use somebody to back him. maybe somebody who worked for president obama. jeh johnson. here is what he said about the flores rule. >> well, we expanded family detention. then we ran into the issue of flores case. i disagreed with the ruling in the flores case. i think our border patrol,
immigration enforcement people need tools to deal with situations like this. steve: when flores came out in '97, it applied mainly to kids that came in the country alone. during the obama administration, a judge ruled that the requirements applied to children with families after the obama administration started to build detention centers for families. ainsley: the bottom line is. president said this. when the individuals after 20 days, when they're released into the united states, they don't show up. a majority of them do not show up for their court date. so the president is saying look, most of them are good people, but this is way we can get them in front of a judge, to find out exactly what the situation is back home. they're seeking asylum, they're in jeopardy, their lives are in danger, they let them stay. if not, they go back home. also a way for us to determine if they're criminals, really more about the individuals. brian: they use the system. they were abusing the system by bringing, taking advantage of the flores rule. it wasn't the intention of the
judge or the rule itself but it was taken advantage by central and south americans. as tom homan predicted, talked about earlier, former border patrol chief, he said he knew this would cause a flood at the gates. it raised illegal apprehensions up 450%. steve: just about an hour ago we had mark morgan, the acting cpb commissioner, also worked during the obama administration. he says this rule change is a step in the right direction. >> right now because of the current flores settlement agreement, everybody knows the smugglers know, those trying to enter illegally into the country know, you grab a kid that is u.s. passport into the united states. we can't hold you more than 20 days. that is not long enough to go through immigration proceedings. it's a crisis. this new rule will address this, about 40 or 50 days. that is what we're talking about, 20 do 50 to 60 days in general what we're talking about. it is not indefinite. long enough to go through the immigration process.
the american people need to understand. this is a game-changer. this needs to get passed. this will eliminate a significant part of this crisis. brian: i know we're in the political season. mark morgan worked for president obama on border patrol. kevin mcaleenan had a key position with democratic administration. he is running dhs. jeh johnson, they had the same thing, they felt the same way. this is not a political move. this is humanitarian way to be, to form a deterrent to stop the flood of illegals coming to our border. breaking the asylum system. steve: the key to this new regulation is that it has to perfectly mirror the flores settlement. we talked to mr. morgan during the commercial break. he said not only does it mirror it, it actually improves on it. so they are expecting that it will become regulation. ainsley: if you look at polls though, you ask most americans, they could want to know who is
coming into the country. this is an important issue. brian: a basic thing. we used to all agree. it seems to have changed. you might not watch bill maher on hbo you might not have hbo but you know he is impact player on the left. many people took note, he thought this bds movement, international movement to divest from investing in israel is ridiculous and hurts the democratic party. here is what he said on his show. >> it's a [bleep] purity test. bds a [bleep] purity test by people who want to appear woke but actually slept through history class. as if the occupation came right out of the blue. that this completely peaceful people, found themselves occupied. forget about the intifadas and suicide bombers. steve: reason he was talking about that on his program last friday night, last night, rather last week, the country of israel denied rashida tlaib and congresswoman omar access to go into israel and then talib,
congresswoman tlaib applied for humanitarian consideration and she was granted it. she said i'm not going to go. so ultimately he was talking about how talib was a big supporter of bds but nobody knew about that who voted for her until she was actually elected. she came out and announced that. ainsley: congresswoman tlaib tweeted this out on saturday. maybe folks should boycott his show, talking about bill maher. i'm tired of folks discrediting a form of speech centered on equality and freedom this is how they tried to discredit, stop the boycott to stand up against apartheid in south africa. it didn't work then it, won't now. brian: does anyone not, does anyone not agree with her think that is leap way too far? answer, yes, me for one. bill maher for two. he tweeted this back. some people have one move only, boycott, cancel, make go away. here is the thing, the house voted 318-17 to condemn the bds
movement including 93% of democrats. does talib want to boycott 93% of her own party? steve: bill maher got the number wrong. it was 398. he is calling her on the boycott business. email us, fox news.com. we're also on facebook. ainsley: jillian has more headlines. jillian: good morning to you. let's begin with a fox news alert. a sheriff's deputy is shot by a sniper, it happened outside of his station. >> taken a shot. shots fired. i'm hit in the right shoulder. it might have gone through.
