3:01 am
and brian. i had to switch it. steve: the person staging it person over here had the trophy we were out of position. ainsley: sorry about that. pete: it was a needed event. thank you everyone who came out. steve: ran into a lot of people at the airport. they either saw the livestream on fox nation or they watched our post game show yesterday. just absolutely loved the way we saluted all the patriots. >> really good fun to stand on stage and see all of those first responders, people who fought for our country. it was nice. steve: meanwhile, the headline here in new york city, ka bloom mike wall bloomberg is about to people down to alabama to start gathering signatures so he would qualify for the primary there it sounds like he wants to run for president because he thinks, first of all, joe biden is weak and bernie sanders and elizabeth warren can't win.
3:02 am
ainsley: deadline is today to file for the alabama primary. the democratic primary which happens in march. the deadline is today. he went down there. sent his staffers to get 500 signatures so he can put his name in the hat. some of his staffers said he is not sure if he is definitely going to run. at least now he has to do it today in alabama. pete: why is he doing this? consider the field. that's what his team is looking at. here is a more recent poll of who should bed democratic party's 2020 presidential nominee. this is from hill harris poll. look at those numbers. very flat across the board. joe biden's numbers have dropped. that's the lowest numbers they have been at 26%. warren and sanders basically neck and neck 15% and same with harris and buttigieg at 6%. 16% that silhouetted figure on the right there unsure. so a ton of people this late in the game if you think about how late it is don't know where to go. ainsley: his top advisor howard wilson he spoke to some supporters he feels his boss is ideal candidate when
3:03 am
you look at that field concerned about the current candidates and he said they are not well-positioned to beat donald trump. steve: think about it. the democrats didn't think that michael bloomberg, who can self-finance his own campaign, he has millions, although elizabeth warren we're going to talk about how she would like a lot of his doe. democrats didn't think he would enter unless joe biden's floundered and here is a red hot alert. he is a floundering. he has problems with the hunter biden's question. he has all sorts of problems answering questions. pete: not raising money. steve: he could be too moderate for the democrats until the general election. people are looking for somebody to pull them way to the left. juan williams very llweleyn realistic about the idea behind mr. bloomberg might running for president. here's what he said last night. >> >> there is no other reason for michael bloomberg to take this step other than his perception is joe biden is stumbling, uncertain on the stage and having trouble raising money. he thinks there is space in
3:04 am
the middle of a democratic primary right now that he, michael bloomberg, can claim. this is a really, you know, i read this afternoon somebody said it was a seismic event for the democratic race. and i think it could be potentially. ainsley: is he a centrist. he could give those candidates a run for his money. he is a centrist. he has been a republican. he has been an independent. now is he running as a democrat. he had that soda tax. take your guns away. all those progressives are going to love that he might be the best candidate. he built his business from scratch. pete: he is not interesting. anyone who has seen michael bloomberg speak. ainsley: a lot of people don't like this president because he is too interesting. pete: super poring mike bloomberg people know him when he lived in new york city and was mayor. informally reached out to dozens of bloomberg staffers, company named after him, and asked if he thought he should run, this is from the actual article
3:05 am
itself from 2018. we asked dozen of bloomberg staffers if they want him to run in 2020. only one said yes. steve: well, apparently a lot of them were reluctant to go on the record so they didn't really answer. nonetheless, if only one was willing. ainsley: worried about their jobs. they don't want him to run for president because then -- pete: saying there is no one else is not a good rationale for candidacy. especially when the party has been pulled to the left. he has done a few things, take away your guns, nanny state stuff. otherwise, there is no reason why a progressive leftist democratic is going to like michael bloomberg. ainsley: boonders was responding on twitter and you mentioned elizabeth warren. tell us what she said. steve: listen, because she knows that michael bloomberg is super wealthy and she has that ultra billionaire tax. welcome to the race, michael bloomberg, if you are looking for policy plans it will make a huge difference for working people and very popular, start here.
3:06 am
it's a calculator for billionaires. ainsley: pretty clever. steve: are you a billionaire yes or no. ainsley: i clicked yes even though i'm not. steve: you would have had to put in a number. ainsley: wow you have a lot of money. steve: if you click you no i'm not gives you a slate of different billionaires. click on michael bloomberg worth $52 billion, turns out according to elizabeth warren's calculator, he would have to pay up on her calculator something like $3 billion every year because he is that rich. steve: that's not income. that's just wealth. ainsley: when i clicked wealth bill gates came up. michael bloomberg. bill gates is worth 107 billion. 4.6. and mike bloomberg 52 billion. 3.1. pete: that's what makes her plan different and extreme it's confiscation. wealth tax on the money you have in the bank every year.
3:07 am
ainsley: i didn't think about that that's in addition to the taxes you already pay. steve: it's after income. okay, look at this, i have got all that money. we want it. pete: she sees them in scrooge mcduck's vault. that money can't be in there. we have to take some coins out. steve: according to her website elizabeth warren, tax would cover universal healthcare, schools, forgive student loan death, college and medicare for all. ainsley: a lot of americans don't care. let the billionaires pay because i'm not one of them. steve: on this friday morning, there was one person who was saying oh, he is going to run? that messes up my plan. pete: who might that be? steve: would that be hillary clinton? pete: no. i think it's the president of the united states. steve: are you kidding? one billionaire from new york after another. pete: that's true. they are out there and running for office. a guy you know who had a big job in the current administration, at the beginning was one of the first supporters of the president of the united
3:08 am
states was on tucker carlson's show last night saying he is running for the u.s. senate, jeff sessions. watch. >> it's not my seat in the senate, but i believe i have something to give. i have some convictions that i think need to be pushed. we need to get some republicans moving. they haven't been pushing hard enough to advance the trump agenda. and so that's what i look forward to doing and i think i can contribute to that. steve: what's going to happen? we have heard of the president of the united states rail against jeff sessions because he was attorney general. he had to recuse himself, which led to the witch-hunt as the president said. so, if, you know, mr. sessions winds up squaring off against doug jones, who won in an upset down in alabama in last time around will the president campaign for him because he is probably real steamed at him. ainsley: you brought up a
3:09 am
good point. a lot of people want a african-american face. someone else. maybe it is doug jones because they feel like jeff sessions already had his time. steve: doug jones is a democrat and jeff sessions is a republican. and alabama is a republican state. but, for the president who is transactional, you know, he is a businessman, he might not like jeff sessions. he might hate his guts. at the same time he might need him. pete: look at him and say listen, could be a good u.s. senator. steve: going to put that on a bumper sticker. ainsley: there have been people who think about the last election. is he friends with a lot of the the people he ran against and on stage talking negatively about them. pete: transactional. ainsley: the party is more important than the republicans. party more important than the president. steve: he is still steamed. wouldn't you be? pete: with the video he put out too. the ousted u.s. ambassador to ukraine meet with a democratic staffer over ukraine-related questions.
3:10 am
steve: an email coming just two days after the whistleblower complaint was filed. is it related? ainsley: griff jenkins joins us live from washington with more on this fox news exclusive report. hey, griff. griff: yeah, hey, ainsley, steve and pete. the only news wasn't jeff sessions coming out, a week from today republicans are going to have a lot of questions for yavanovich. the emails show she contradicted herself over communication with the democratic staffer ukraine related oversight. denying it. now, look, on august 14th, two days after the whistleblower files that complaint, the democratic staffer wrote this to yavovonich i would appreciate the ground few pieces with you some of which are quite delegate, time sensitive and thus we want to make sure we get them right. yavonovich who says she did not respond to this email appears to have written back personal email on august 15th. thanks for reaching out and congratulations on your new
3:11 am
book. i would love to reconnect and look forward to tha chatting with you. also testifying public next week career diplomat george kent will be asked about his testimony. president trump wanted to hear three words from the ukraine president quote investigations biden and clinton this as congressman jim jordan says he intends to call the whistleblower to testify saying he or she should be made to account for their actions but democrats disagree. and in just a few hours, guys, we will find out whether or not the president's acting chief of staff, mic mulvaney who has has been subpoenaed to give a deposition will indeed show up don't hold your breath. sources tell us it's highly unlikely we will see him. steve: thank you very much. mark levin took a look at all of this stuff regarding this email back and forth on the private account. he had this observation last night with sean hannity. >> who he has ever heard of a whistleblower who is somebody backed by the establishment. normally you have a whistleblower who challenging the
3:12 am
establishment, challenging the system. you have the entire establishment, the media, the democrat party. part of the republican party in the senate backing a whistleblower. i have really never seen anything like this. it's bizarre. the reason have you whistleblower protections because the whistleblower is going against the system. in this case we have the president going against the system and the whistleblower going against the president of the united states. steve: never thought about it like that. pete: a great way to put it. maybe the actual whistleblower is the president of the united states who went to washington, d.c. to disrupt the status quo in the establishment. steve: is he a disrupter. pete: maybe is he blowing the whistle in all of washington. this has been a sham. this guy is a leaker with an agenda. gets the title of whistleblower because he seems legitimate. steve: in the beginning, the story that was out there was extraordinary. this whistleblower heard about quid pro quo, the president made a promise. as it turns out, according to the president's team. that never happened. pete: dropped a transcript.

3:19 am
came out and said yeah, probably mistaken identity. they were at the wrong place at the wrong time. you say that's not right. >> it's not right. i spoke with frank. we go back many years and i asked him what is the basis for this and was it mistaken identity? he said absolutely not. he said that the cartels have wielded a lot of power there this family is hard-working. they are dual citizenship, they are americans down in mexico. they do have resources. they were tired of being abused. their children have been kidnapped. and so they made a conscious decision that they would not give in to these terrorists. that they would resist them and it was that resistance and defiance that the cartels took issue with. and that's why you saw what happened. steve: just out of curiosity, if you are a family down living in cartel country, how would you protect yourself? i mean, what did they do down there to, you know, if they are going to stand up to the cartel, they have got to do something to make sure this doesn't happen. >> that's right.
3:20 am
you know, frank is a product of this family, and he will describe this family as hard-working, down to earth, very grounded people. so what they did was a very practical decision. they all agreed that if a child was kidnapped, they knew that the mexican government was not going to assist them against the cartels, so they would form literally their own militia and go in and try to forcibly retrieve their children at times. they took on the cartel because they didn't have the help of the government. they didn't have enough protection. and they didn't want to -- they didn't want to negotiate with terrorists because they knew if they did they would suffer more kidnappings or more atrocities. so that's why they took the approach they did. that's why this clash was not mistaken identity. steve: clearly the mexican government doesn't want to do anything about this because they -- they have tried to fight the cartels before and the cartel always wins. frank, what do you want this administration, the federal government of the united
3:21 am
states, to do? >> well, i want the white house, which i think is looking at it closely. i want them to understand that this organization is a terrorist organization. we need to designate as fto. a terrorist organization that then we ask congress to authorize use of military force against. that's the way you take on this cartel. when i was u.s. attorney, for example, we tried to prosecute our way out of it. you can't do it. steve: so don't treat them as a drug cartel. treat them as a terrorist organization. >> that's right. that's what they're. and now the world sees it tragically. steve: all right. let's see what happens. brett tollman, representing the family. thank you for joining us from utah. >> thank you. steve: all right. 6:21 now in new york city. coming up, two racing boats, look at that flip over and crash at the same time. dramatic moments caught on camera. we will tell you what happened next.

pete: should be out there seeing it. let them smell the cordite and seat blast effects of an ied or ambush or the casualties that inevitably result from too restrictive rules. pete: your believe is that, sure, the pentagon is going to say this that the president should stick to his guns these guys have been improperly pushed. >> the pentagon has had its way in a very bureaucratic approach for 18 years. the president is right to end these endless wars. he is right to call them on what's been a largely a failed policy where we spend hundreds of billions of dollars and wasting good american blood and treasure. pete: you've seen these cases personally as the founder of blackwater in one case in particular raven 23. four guys in jail right now for up to years. >> fourth time of being prosecuted. thrown out for prosecutorial misconduct. hung jury. it's been -- you know, when the federal government comes after you and these poor guys, whether it's the military case or civilian case, when you hav unrelenting

4:01 am
he has billions and billions and billions of dollars. ainsley: and built it from scratch. steve: he could buy every tv commercial on every tv station in every primary state from now until 2025. pete: doesn't mean it will make him interesting. so that's his challenge. what is the rationale for a michael bloomberg candidacy? he was a republican turned -- no he was a democrat turned republican turned independent turned democrat now? steve: is he a bostonian turned new yorker. pete: whatever. he has made a pile of money. looking out at this field of democrats in 2020 and saying i just don't see it. which we have heard in reporting that the donors are saying is there somebody else out there? here's the most recent of who democrats prefer nationwide. joe biden's number dipped even mother to 26%. warren and sanders neck and neck. second tier of candidates kamala harris and pete buttigieg. black silhouetted guy or gal

16% of undecided that he is looking at as well as the soft numbers for everybody. ainsley: howard wolf his top advisor and he is a hillary clinton guy. he said his boss, talking about bloomberg, is the ideal candidate to take on president trump. he said because we are so concerned about this current field we don't think that any of them are in a position to win. steve: and you looked at the joe biden numbers in the beginning were like, wow, why didn't he run last time? he would have eaten donald trump. to your point, pete, the numbers have soft. the questions about hunter biden and joe's inability to really catch fire out on the trail. so people are going, you know, michael bloomberg, hillary clinton has suggested, won't get in unless he stumbles. he is tumbling. they also are very realistic. elizabeth warren, who leads in a unof in polls cannot be elected, the party elders feel. so michael bloomberg has, look, he has got a polling unit, they know exactly how people in the primary states, the early primary states feel.
4:03 am
if they didn't somehow endorse the idea of bloom getting in. i'm not saying he could possibly win. i'm saying if they don't endorse of the idea of him getting in running, he wouldn't be running. ainsley: i first heard he was interested. i thought well, a lot of people don't like the current administration because they think that he tweets too much. and, you know, the country was ready for a change. and that's why he was elected. but now the country, many people in the country are saying he is too much. and they do like boring. they want someone who is going to be more presidential. i'm not saying that, you know, that i feel that way because there are a lot of middle america loves president trump. but there are people in new york and people in california that would love to see a michael bloomberg get in because is he a centrist. but he also wanted that soda tax. pete: nanny stater. ainsley: exactly. he wants to take away your guns, which joe biden probably doesn't. but then have you progressives that do. pete: steve, you can have an army of polsters. if you don't have the voters. you don't have anything. steve: but that's why you run a bunch of tv commercials. >> peter doocy was talking

michael bloomberg running for president. >> he made a mess of new york. what would he do? todd: you think he made a mess of new york. interesting. harsh words from pat. how about you, sir, what's your name. >> blake. todd: what do you think about michael bloomberg potentially running for president? >> the only reason he is running because biden might choke. that's what i think. todd: your name, ma'am? >> dinel that. todd: what do you think about michael bloomberg potentially running for the highest office in the land? >> i agree with him. he is only doing it because of biden. we know who is going to win? todd: i'm sorry, who is going to win in your estimated opinion? >> trump. he has done a lot for the economy. done a lot for small businesses. he has done everything he possibly can without the congress stopping him doing things. but they need to get back to work. trump has done a lot. look at how much stuff he has had thrown at him. no other president in our country has ever had to take all the stuff that they are doing right now to him. so, i'm all for trump. todd: all right. there you go. breakfast with friends live from the streets of new york city without breakfast. guys, back to you.
4:07 am
steve: all right. so they are unanimous. nobody thinks it's a good idea. ainsley: they are saying what his top advisor is saying. only reason he is doing this he doesn't think anyone in the democratic field can win. pete: you can't buy energy. tom steyer bought a lot as you said he is still not above 3, 4% in any of these early states. what makes you believe that michael bloomberg, let's say he does better because he was the mayor and people know him a little bit more. 7%, 8%, 9%. he only ends up playing spoiler or taking from joe biden if the point is to get past the leftist as well. it is a mess on the democrat side right now. only headed to another debate stage where they will go at each other even more. steve: they are trying to figure it out. keep you posted on that. meanwhile the ousted u.s. ambassador to ukraine agrees to meet with the democratic staffer over ukraine-related questions. ainsley: the email coming just two days after the whistleblower's complaint was filed. pete: interesting timing. griff jenkins joins us live from washington with more on the fox news exclusive report.
4:08 am
griff? griff: good morning, pete, ainsley and steve. former ambassador yovanovich is going to face some cuff questions today according to emails obtained by "tucker carlson tonight." may have contradicted herself ukraine related oversight under oath she denied responding to this email on august 14th. keep in mind this is two days after the whistleblower filed that complaint. the democrat staffer wrote, quote: i would appreciate the chance to ground truth a few pieces of information with you. some of which are quite delicate, time-sensitive and thus we want to make sure we get them right. yovanovich, who testified that she did not respond to the staffer appears to have written back the next day on august 15th using a personal email writing, quote: thanks for reaching out and congratulations on your new job. i would love to reconnect and look forward to chatting with you. also testifying publicly next week career diplomat george kent who will be asked about his testimony that president trump wanted to hear three words from the ukrainian president, quote: investigations biden and clinton. this all comes as
4:09 am
congressman jim jordan indicates he wants the whistleblower to be called to testify saying he or she should account for their actions. democrats who would have to approve it, disagree. >> the whistleblower needs to remain protected. should not be hauled in front of congress because, frankly, that's what whistleblower protection statutes are there for. >> now, in just two hours, under two hours, the president's acting chief of staff mic mulvaney has been subpoenaed to give a closed door deposition. but don't hold your breath. sources tell us it's highly unlikely he will appear. pete, ainsley, steve. steve: you are right about that. griff, thank you very much. pete: i think as you watch this and pull back from it, how many times are we hearing about staffers and certain committees. communicating with ambassadors or other people or so-called whistleblowers and we are always finding out later on a day later, two days later, a week later, that they knew more than they let on they knew to begin with. which is what gives people the sense that there is some -- either whether you call it a conspiracy or coordination. whatever you want to call it
4:10 am
behind the scenes going on against this president. it's not just oh, shucks, someone gave me a whistleblower report now. i'm so patriotic i have got to bring it to the american people. steve: that makes the point that there have been a number of books written about the deep state and how the deep state is out to get this president and will stop at nothing. ainsley: mark levin was on with sean hannity and he made a great point. listen. >> who has ever heard of a whistleblower who is someone who is backed by the establishment? you know, normally you have a whistleblower who is challenging the establishment, challenging the system. you have the entire establishment, the media, the democrat party, part of the republican party in the senate backing a whistleblower. i really have never seen anything like this. it's really bizarre. the reason you have whistleblower protections is because the whistleblower is going against the system. in this case we have the president going against the system and the whistleblower going against the president of the united states. steve: you know. pete: that's a great point. steve: when they start these open hearings next wednesday, jim jordan wants the whistleblower to be
4:11 am
called as a witness because they have put out these three questions. and while they would -- on their face seem to exclude calling in hunter biden, so some have suggested they were trying to protect the bidens, the way they have tailored those three questions, they apply completely to the whistleblower. the only person on capitol hill who knows hot whistleblower is sounds like -- although the whistleblower attorney has said that the only person who knows the identity are members of the intel community, the ig department. ainsley: he gets paid to say that. pete: they are successfully gaming the types of questions that can be asked of all the witnesses. steve: right, absolutely. pete: democrats can overrule republicans on. steve: sorry, number two doesn't apply. pete: out of line. in my mind, what the real whistleblower here is the president of the united states who is elected to disrupt. he has thrown the flag, blown the whistle on the swamp and said the way you are doing business is not advancing the interest of the american people. and mark levin puts that on a bow as he often does, so nicely by saying if you are
4:12 am
blowing the whistle and everyone inside agrees with you, you are not actually blowing the whistle. you are singing with the chorus, that's precisely what's happened. ainsley: let us know what you think friends at meantime hand it over to jillian who has more headlines. jillian: start with fox news alert on this friday. a man wanted in the kidnapping of a ufc murder stepdaughter arrested overnight. caught on same alabama convenience store where blanchard went missing two weeks ago. already facing kidnapping and attempted murder charges in another case. police believe amy a was the victim of foul play based on the evidence found inside her car. the ninth and final victim of the mexican drug cartel max kerr will be laid to rest today. christina langford was traveling with her american family when they came under fire on monday. earlier we spoke to former u.s. attorney for utah brett tollman. he says the massacre wasn't just a case of mistaken identity. >> they were tired of being abused. their children had been kidnapped.
4:13 am
so they made a conscious decision that they would not give in to these terrorists, that they would resist them and it was that resistance and defiance that the cartels took issue with. and that's why you saw what happened. jillian: yesterday hundreds attended funerals for the eight other victims. the president's re-election campaign launching a new effort to connect with veterans. fox news can exclusively report the planned veterans for trump coalition will highlight the president's reforms at the v.a. and record-lovern-low loverne unemployment. 48% saying he has made the military stronger. >> talking point. pete: strong case. speaking of not strong cases, adam schiff unveiling new rules for the impeachment hearings. now republicans will have to prove why their witnesses are relevant. steve: they have to be on those three questions.

4:19 am
nothing that would actually portray what truly happened. certainly nothing that would allow the calling of what may be the most important witnesses in this matter, hunter biden to explain what he was doing for ukrainian oligarch under investigation for 50 to $80,000 a month or for that matter joe biden to explain why he didn't recuse himself from all matters related to ukraine given this obvious conflict of interest with his son. pete: senator, do you think that's what it is all about, someone like hunter biden not being called to the stand? protecting him? >> i think shifty adam schiff and nancy pelosi are going the extra mile to protect joe biden. you know, nancy pelosi has started to intimate that she is worried that radical left wingers like bernie sanders or elizabeth warren may win the presidential nomination. that leaves all the chips left on joe biden and his faltering campaign. i can't imagine that she wants to see joe biden or hunter biden called to account for this obvious conflict of interest during the obama era.
4:20 am
steve: well, you know, in reading the three questions, senator, maybe you wouldn't be able to call joe biden or hunter biden but they would be able to call the whistleblower. and i know some republicans have wanted to hear from the whistleblower anyway. any possibility that adam schiff would say, you know what? you are right. that person does qualify under my rules. >> would adam schiff say that? no. of course not, steve. even if he did qualify under those rules as written. look, our whistleblower protection statutes are designed to protect government employees from retaliation at work from reporting misconduct in their agency or their department. they are not allowed -- they are not there to allow to you launch impeachment proceedings against the president of the united states while colluding with democratic operatives in congress and throughout the government. pete: doesn't feel like since it's gone public it's gotten any better. senator tom cotton thank you very much for your time.

4:34 am
sat down. i didn't know what it was about, ed, he felt like he and his colleagues needed to find a new bright light in the party who wars going to take it back for the republicans. started sketching out focused on populist issues and cracking down on illegal immigration. he sketched out for me jeff sessions you know when i knew that romney was going to lose that story about all those houses he had. walls that the turning point? he said no. session said when i saw that he had an elevator for his cars in one of those homes, he said there is not a lot of people in alabama who have an elevator for their car. here's my point. at that breakfast, it was me, senator sessions and his staffer, steven miller, where do you know him? he is now one of president trump's right arms at the white house. so people forget that jeff sessions was conservative before it was cool. steve: but here's the thing. that is light years before he had to recuse himself and then that recusal subjected the president to what he calls to. ed: bad moment. steve: the president does not like him for that.
4:35 am
ed: but if he wins, he will be one of the president's bigger supporters in the president is my point. ainsley: is this about legacy? his reputation is different now. when he went into the white house it was one way. ed: correct. i covered the senate for a long, long time. jeff sessions when they tallied up the vote every session was the second or third most conservative senator every time. he had this sterling reputation on the right. it was marred by his fights with president trump. i think he wants to rewrite what the ending on his political career is. steve: but the problem is the president has been very vocal over the last number of years about jeff sessions. whoever he is running against is simply going to get the videotape recorder out and snip up where the president says jeff sessions is an embarrassment. he does not have a clue. and that will be very damaging. ed: going to be a problem for him. on the other hand, jeff sessions vape where he was before the wall before a whole best of your knowledge of other people are. ainsley: depends who runs

4:37 am
publicly about the ukraine call that you don't like, mr. president. but mcconnell said take it a little bit. we will see whether the president can do that. ainsley: do you think he will? ed: in the end mcconnell's point was they may want to let some steam out i don't like all of this and show they are being fair and impartial in the end they are not going to vote to remove you. that's the bottom line that mcconnell has told the president i'm told privately, you can survive a trial but you have got to do it that way and have you got to let this play out. ainsley: it's hard to give the president advice like that because is he commander-in-chief. ed: didn't take it when it comes to mitt romney. when romney fired back on ukraine he fired back. steve: to you with are going to be on the couch tomorrow. ed: 6:00 a.m. starting on saturday i will have a show noon eastern to 1:00. saturday and sunday. >> we are doing this starting now going right up until next year's election. there is a lot of news to cover. a lot of politics. in fact, we are going to have a supporter of the president who is going to announce on our show that she is getting in to a big race for congress. taking on a.

is the best chance in the general and he is stumbling? >> you're absolutely right. elizabeth warren, bernie sanders. you see surveys. pete buttigieg, joe biden is fourth, the survey i saw in iowa. things are looking pretty grim for the democrats. elizabeth warren with "medicare for all," and you know all of these other programs. bernie sanders wants open borders and so forth. it is going to be very difficult. it would seem to me, unless the president is mortally injured by the impeachment stuff, that there is no democrat currently in the field that has, in major's words a path to victory. so bloomberg mixing it up, let him throw the dice. it is chump change. makes tom steyer billionaire in the race a pauper. >> they're taking gloves off, going after each other within the party the democratic candidates. they will hammer him what he said about the "me too" movement. he told "the new york times" i don't know how true all of this
5:04 am
is, disputing credibility of women. he had a hard time winning third race in new york because of stop-and-frisk thing. they will hammer him for that too. >> stop-and-frisk, i was supporter of it. i do believe that is what helped turn the city around, to become the safest big city in the country, maybe the safest big city on earth. he did, as administrator, as a leader he was inspirational. he was excellent. you have to go back to the harsh pragmatics of it. is there a path he can succeed? would be very difficult. >> michael bloomberg has something nobody else does, and that is "judge judy." >> or if he gets judge jeanine then he can -- steve: she is coming up. >> believe me, she will not be for him i predict. say one thing about -- there is no doubt but that these democrats in the field now are
5:05 am
very wounded in a sense. their positions will not appeal to the general electorate. steve: how will we pay for that? >> how will you pay for that? $20 trillion added to the budget is ridiculous. pete: bernie sanders announced his immigration plan break up of i.c.e. and cpb. he want a moratorium on deportations. end i.c.e. raids. all internal enforcement. contrast the position the president has taken. i want people to come here legally, if you don't come here legally, especially if you're a criminal, we don't support sanctuary cities and we'll crack down on that. is bernie sanders running -- is there a serious position to take? >> this is where you and i -- pete: we don't agree. >> i think harsh enforcement of otherwise law-abiding, undocumented immigrants is great
5:06 am
recipe for people to hate i.c.e. have resentment. for people to tremendous sympathy. the raid happened down south where they arrested poultry processing workers, 700 of them. pete: steelen identities. >> i get to the stolen identities. it's a horrible job. can't get american citizens to fill the jobs. meatpacking, foultry processing -- steve: they had a jobs fair hundreds of people showed up for the job. >> i wonder how many of them were citizens? s in you pay 25 bucks an hour, pay friday chicken at a restaurant 45, 50 bucks, they are part of the industry for decades. total hypocrisy. pete: we don't need to get in an immigration debate because we disagree. the reality is this message generally speaking, abolishing i.c.e., if he is one of the front-runners of the democratic party, is that a smart position to take? >> you and i will agree.
5:07 am
there is a very small sliver of the american people who are in favor of open borders. who are in favor of the abolition of all enforcement. who are in favor of the, you know, come on america, is open, it is a country of immigrants. if you get here you're welcoming. that is devastatingly negative position for democrats to take because the american people will not accept it. what they want, i believe, is a reasoned, compassionate approach. no cruelty. no separation of families, like poultry raid we're talking about. on the first day of school, steve. so you have children go to school. and their dads who have been working there for 15 years, get arrested for deportation. 12-year-old comes home from school, there is no parent there. no wonder they mate i.c.e. pete: so many others live in country -- of course you can. >> poultry processes. these are not stick up people. pete: where does geraldo rivera decide someone's illegal enough?
5:08 am
>> if you have a crime. easily. pete: i'm friendly illegal. >> if you have a felony charge you're out of here. pete: that is not what the sanctuary cities are doing. >> these children are citizens. the parents are being deported on first day of school. you wonder why people hate i.c.e.? steve: geraldo you made a great point earlier talking about for a very long time people have worked in these jobs because the companies, it looks like looked the other way. all those stolen identities, you know, people would show a social security number, or something like, that does not sync up. >> i'm so glad you brought up stolen identities, this is the most underreported aspect of illegal immigration. they steal social card. steve: messes up people's time. >> sometimes 100 use the same social security number. the employer deducts payroll tax from everyone of those, steve, everyone of the paychecks, because he is required, the
5:09 am
employer, everyone of those workers is paying into the social security fund with absolutely no expectation they will ever get anything out when they're 65. pete: cheating the system. >> illegal immigrants, so-called, are supporting the social security system. they are keeping it afloat to the tune of billions of dollars. ainsley: you're sure? >> i am positive -- ainsley: chicken processing -- pete: benevolent defrauding? >> it is the other side of the story, pete. the other side of the story. it is not, these people are not blood-sucking users of american services. these are people who are law-abiding, they have been in these communities for decades and they pay their taxes and they get no benefits. steve: when you were the victim of identity theft, it takes years to undo that? >> i agree with that, that it takes years to do that. but i want people to know the money paying in, money donating to americans. ainsley: everyone has a heart
