6:00 am
>> the missouri dive team will start again in the morning, at this time we have 11 confirmed fatalities. 7 transported, only one of them had serious injuries, the rest moderate injuries. dagen: those killed in accident include children. meantime tornadoes flattening parts of iowa, at least 10 people injured as twisters devastated homes and overturned cars, we have the very latest. and a what i will -- whale of as flight, the strangest-looking plane ever. the goose was pretty weird too. we will look in history and look into the future, with me this morning kristina partsinevelos, kevin kelly and adam shapiro. that you think all for being here. you are watching commodity
6:01 am
prices, grain prices are getting crushed but not just grains. kevin: it's one of the biggest economic indicate cayers and that's copper and it's used for industrial production and buildings and it gives us a read through in chinese economic and recently gdp at matching the estimates, so actually pretty telling that there might be sort of this pullback in business investment due to the fact that commodities are selling off and it's not just steel we know has had a big-up but over the past months has weighed on commodities. dagen: we will talk about trade concerns with guests who are on in moments, we also have new york congressman chris collins who is on on, and huckabee and you don't want to misgentlemen. feeling impact of trade
6:02 am
tensions, america's closest allies could retaliate if the u.s. moves forward with tariffs as much as up to 25% on imported vehicles and auto parts. wilbur ross says it's too early to say if the trump administration will actually press ahead with tariffs, there's already swift pushback from moves of the president's own party in capitol hill. >> i would like to see us move to a zero tariff world. the tariff idea is ridiculous, i mean, it's ridiculous idea, it's going to cost american jobs, tax americans, it's going to be a texas on the american people and my sense is that congress will step in and keep that from happening if it attempts to do so. >> desperately hope that we get off to this tariff quick and really starting to bite around the country and it's going to escalate, that's the way this
6:03 am
goes. you hard press any instance where you impose tariffs to try to get a level playing field it always ratchets up. dagen: corn is trading at lowest point in almost a year. and the latest round of tariffs on $20 billion worth of chinese goods could hit the apple watch, fit bit, speakers with 10% tariffs. joining us jon hilsenrath, jon, your take on this tariff fight. we heard -- because, again, we heard in testimony earlier this week the head of the fed jay powell was very careful to say about what he says the economic impact of the trade fight. jon: right, but we also had fed report where fed goes out and surveys businesses about what's happening in real economy and layed out a xeal bunch of companies that were saying that tariffs were starting to bite them and, you know, i think it's
6:04 am
interesting, next week we are getting report out from commerce department on gdp growth in second quarter, it'll be a strong report but up with of the things that's going to be underneath that report is, again, the tariff impact, we are seeing companies that companies are building up inventories, they are trying to get products in before prices go up. one of the drivers of growth in second quarter was inventory growth as companies prepare for tariffs and we also saw up surge of soybean sales last quarter which was basically companies getting soybeans out before those tariffs went up. so we are seeing real distortions in the economy already. numbers are getting big enough that they are starting to bite. dagen: jon, with the hearing that we had yesterday on potential for tariffs on imported autos and i spoke my mind pretty clearly yesterday where i stand on that, on the impact on all automakers both u.s. which would see higher auto
6:05 am
parts and also foreign auto makers that have plants here in the united states plus the price, price increases that would be passed onto consumers running thousands of dollars per vehicle, that being said, do you have any sense of where the white house, where the trump administration stands on really pushing ahead and trying to use that national security issue to slap auto tariffs on? >> well, wilbur ross said at the hearings yesterday that they hadn't made a decision yet, so, you know, that suggested maybe their heels aren't sunk in on it but what we have seen time and time again there's a lot of disagreement on the white house on how to proceed with this stuff, it all comes down with the president, what does donald trump want to do, he seems to think that this tariff issue is a winner for him, so, you know, that seems to be where they are going on it. the other thing i say about autos is we did a story earlier this week on what's happened in the washing machine industry -- dagen: yeah, you did, we talked
6:06 am
which you guys reported so terrifically yesterday and the prices of washing machines going up. jon: yeah, what we saw 20% increase in just three months. you think about what that means for cars, if you get a 20% increase on cars, basically a 20,000-dollar car is now going to cost you $24,000, so, you know, that's kind of a rough sketch of what this kind of thing could do. kevin: jon, this is kevin kelly, you were talking about redurable goods, people buy those once every 3, 5, 7, 10 years, what my main concern is possibly the perfect storm of what we are seeing rising input costs vis-a-vis rising rates, we also have labor costs, you mention and labor is tight right now, you're talking tariffs, can we hit 4% gdp, how how do you see things coming up for the second
6:07 am
half of the year, this administration is still talking about 4%? jon: yeah, what's going to happen next week commerce department will report gdp numbers, estimates 4 to 5%. what we have to remember that's just for the second quarter, there's going to be a lot of people saying, look, we hit 4%, you know, mission accomplished but that's after 2% number in the first quarter and then like you say, the second half of the year is wild card, a lot of the growth that we got in the second quarter, again, was due to inventory growth and you could see companies pairing back those inventories later in the year, so, you know, i think it does look like economic growth has picked up tax cuts are spurring consumer spending, it does look like there's business investment but i just think a little too early to cel brit on this kind of thing, there's a lot of things that have to play out over the course of the year before we declare victory. dagen: before remove on, jon,
6:08 am
these tariffs have a long shelf life because we've talked about it on the program, my friends call it the chicken tax which is that tariff that's on truck that is we have 25%, tariff on import it's called the chicken tax because it was retaliation by the lyndon johnson administration to a fight we had over poultry import into europe back in the mid-60's. jon: right. dagen: they have a long life. jon: well, they have a long life and that light truck tariff is something that should be part of this conversation, you know, the u.s. is telling the europeans that they discriminate against us on cars, well, we have very high tariffs on their trucks and americans love suv's, that's a protection for domestic producers. dagen: well said, the dollar yesterday slid after president trump criticized the federal reserve saying he's not thrilled by recent interest rate hikes
6:09 am
suggesting that they risk undermining the strengthening economy, what do you make of this rebuke by the president in. jon: well, i say a couple of things about that, the first thing is that, you know, you have to be careful about looking a gift towards in the mouth, u.s. interest rates are very low, unemployment of 4%, we have an economy as we were just talking about that grew 4% and growing above seems its potential with a very low interest rate, the fed -- so, you know, you have to be careful about calling out the fed for raying interest rates aggressively when they are low in the environment that we've got, the other thing i'd say is that the fed hasn't changed its course at all. the trump administration came along, they cut -- they cut taxes, that has helped to spur economic growth. the fed has not changed its course. they've been on the gradual path
6:10 am
of interest rate, the president was complaining in the news club about the fed holding back what the trump administration is trying to do but they really haven't altered path at all, so, you know, it's a little hard to put that argument into perspective. >> adam, a lot of people were trying to make much about the president even talking about the federal reserve because recent administrations, i think it started with bill clinton administration that the attitude was don't talk publicly about the fed, again, it's a throw away comment, it's not like the president has got call jay powell on the back phone. adam: and the fed, jon can attest to this, they will preserve independence and bent over backwards to try to appear independent. jon, they are probably not taking the president -- they are still sleeping sound, are they not? jon: they are sleeping soundly but i don't think it's a throw
6:11 am
away comment because there's debate going on about whether the fed does two more interest rate increases or one, in other words, whether they -- they have a meeting in december where they've got to decide whether they want to do one more rate increase or do they pause and wait another quarter to do one. you know, it looked like even odds, if you're jay powell right now, you know, what do you thinking about whether you're going to do that pause later in the year, now all of a sudden if you do the pause, people might say, oh, well, maybe you're pausing because trump is breathing down your neck, jay powell wants and shows independence and could come into play in the meeting where they have to decide to keep going a little bit or hold back. i think this -- whether the fed likes it or not, this does play into how they strategize. i don't think it plays into how far they go on rates but how they strike that guise the next -- dagen: i made a joke on twitter,
6:12 am
let's not go as far as comparing this to richard nixon putting pressure on arthur burns to keep the economy juiced up. jon: lyndon johnson poking him in the chest saying don't do that. we are not seeing that yet. [laughter] jon: i do think that it kind of plays into the psychology of decision making. dagen: long-term interest rates are not directly controlled by the federal reserve, that's the market and they will move against you and fast and there's nothing you can do about it. jon, thank you so much. jon hilsenrath, we covered it all. vacation horror, at least 11 people dead after tour boat flips over in branson, missouri, frantic search for 5 others that are still missing, accident caused by rough weather in midwest which also triggered tornadoes in parts of iowa, we have the very latest.

and donate over a million dollars every day. so our communities can be even stronger. it's a new day at wells fargo. but it's a lot like our first day.
6:14 am
6:15 am
>> at least 11 people some of them children are dead after a powerful storm in missouri causes boat to capsize. >> 31 passengers on board the bet. dive teams working through the night to find several that are still missing, the boat sunk to the bottom of lake as intense thunderstorms passed through area, 11 dead and two adults
6:16 am
listed in critical condition, ntsb is investigating why the boat was out in such rough waters. in the meantime we have tornadoes ripping through iowa shredding homes at least 17, the twisters flattening buildings and flipping over cars at least in 3 cities. >> oh, my god, oh, my god. honey, get inside. there just went a house. >> weather forecasters say tornadoes form suddenly and took them by surprise, one tornado hit manufacturing plant scattering sheets of metal while people still working inside. two minnesota police officers shot on the job, rushed to hospital, panic call for help just released. >> shots fired, i am down, i've been hit, left shoulder, he is
6:17 am
constantly shooting at us. >> shots fired. >> the officers were following up on a call about a missing person when a man started shooting, one of the cops shot in the shoulder and the other in the leg, they are now recovering back at home. the suspect is behind bars and he is expected to be charged with attempted murder. and in earnings, microsoft is firing on all cylinders these days, the company making more money last quarter than wall street had expected. it's cloud business soaring and sale of 360 tablets are on a tear. the stock is higher in the premarkets, meantime general electric is also out with latest earnings before the bell this morning, earnings per share expected to fall sharply from a year ago to 17 cents a piece, investors will be listening for another possible cut in ge's

6:23 am
dagen: here now chris collins as well as democratic copyingman henry, member of house appropriation's committee, congressman collins, i want to start with you first, so close to midterms this vladimir putin putin to the white house, are you worried? >> i'm not at all. let's face it this is to be about world peace, dagen, our hot spots are north korea, iran and syria, that's what has put the world in a bad place, vladimir putin has fingers in all three of those and the only way to get resolution in safe world and world peace for vladimir putin and president trump to come to some agreement to get rid of the nuclear threat in iran and the nuclear threat in north korea and the terrible situation in syria, so that takes conversation, you don't do that over the telephone. i think the trip, the helsinki
6:24 am
summit was a good first start and trump to be congratulated that he's continuing a dialogue that someone that has to be part of solution, congressman, even, however, other republicans, lindsey graham said there won't be any one-on-one meetings any longer between putin and trump? >> well, you know, that speaks a lot when even a republican friends are saying that we shouldn't leave president trump and putin alone. i mean, that speaks a lot as to what sort of confidence they have, look, i agree with my friend, my colleague from new york that we have to make sure that -- first of all, we protect the united states, that's number one, that's our number one interest and one of the things we still have to answer is the aggression that russia did in 2010 election and i don't want to talk about that, but just what they did and what they are
6:25 am
doing now, look at the department of justice report they did about cybersecurity and cyber threat, so we have to make sure that it's not only the weapons that they use, you know, the general type of weapons but it's also the cyber issues that have been used against us. dagen: congressman collins, to that point, there's going to be a great deal pressure on vladimir -- president trump if vladimir putin is on american soil to put the hammer down in terms of any manipulation of our election process and really hammer that home, there was a microsoft executive who was speaking at a -- speaking at a conference, i think, it was at the aspen institute that there have been attempted russian interference with a handful of candidates, about 3 candidates so far for the midterms. >> well, there's no question,
6:26 am
dagen, that russia did meddle in the election, it didn't change the outcome of the election, but they were meddling just like we have cases where north korea and iran are attacking, attempt to go get into infrastructure, nuclear plants, we have them going after bank records, right now cybersecurity is a top issue not only when it comes to elections but every other aspect of american lives and we've got a lot of bad actors and the same people and it's north korea, it's russia, and it's iran that are leading these efforts and we have to be on alert not only in the government but also private industry and even common sense measures by individuals that is one of the issues that's facing us and will continue to face us, literally, forever. dagen: i want to switch to immigration, new gallup poll released wednesday showed that immigration was top problem facing the united states among
6:27 am
pose polls followed with dissatisfaction with the government and poor leadership, how can congress come together to fix immigration, congressman cuellar, you did vote to support ice. >> well, of course, i support ice, i've worked with them for many years, i know them, men and women and i don't think we need to attack the men and women that are just doing the law, just enforcing the laws, i think what we need to do is look at the policies. bottom line is this, bottom line if we are going to do immigration, every piece of legislation that's been passed on immigration has been bipartisan. if one party thinks they will do it by themselves, it's not going to happen. it has to be bipartisan and i'm surely -- i'm the first one to reach out across the aisle and say that i'm ready to work, there's ways, i live at the border, i drink the water, i breathe the air and i understand, the only problem i have is when people come to the border, spend a few hours and they think they know the border
6:28 am
better than constituents and law enforcement people that we have on the border with all due respect. dagen: congressman you sound like you're talking about members of your own party too, not just -- >> if you're right, if you look at some of my quotes i've said to democrats and republicans, hey, pay attention to the people that are there, that have lived there, that understand, for example, in my area, we want to see legitimate trade, commerce, tourism with our friends of the south but it's got to be balanced with border security. dagen: a lot of bipartisan agreement on this program this morning and i think our viewers appreciate it. congressman chris collins great to see you and congressman henry cuellar. >> thank you. dagen: microsoft still 9 billion mark but still struggles amazon.

its earnings moves, earnings-per-share $.19 a share, that is the actual, it came in versus 17 sense so a beat on earnings-per-share, $30.1 billion on revenue versus $29.31 billion is the estimate. that stock moving up one person. what do you make of this? it is what is said in the earnings release and conference call about the dividend, asset sales and the like. >> they are focused on the restructuring plan predicated on the power unit, everyone seeing what they will do with that. and guidance for the rest of the year. ge said they would make one dollar and $0.07 for the entire year. analysts expect to do $.95 so if they come out and reaffirm the guidance and show planes taking hold we could see a pop in the stock but that is moving a little bit, 1% and we will see what management says.
6:33 am
dagen: let's bring in strategic research partners ceo jason turner, better to take a breath and get it right. you are one of our favorite guests on this program. what do you make of earning season so far? >> you only have 10% of earnings looking like 22% increase. a lot of people are focused on the second derivative, you talk about a peak in earnings and i'm focused on the level and the good news is you are creating a lot of value with earnings coming in and it is not just taxes. in the first quarter earnings were up 24%. if you strip out taxes they were up about 9. this is the real thing. dagen: earnings up 23% from last year. analysts looking for the
6:34 am
estimates, 20.5, 21. >> investment sentiment is relatively bearish mixed with uncertainty, we could potentially be heading for a little bit of a downward trend. >> from a short-term perspective that is possible but i also think intermediate to long-term investor the fact that people are concerned, this is a strange bull market because in many ways it is the bull market no one loved, people keep fighting it and it keeps grinding, 9 years old and four months and the zeitgeist around the bull market is not cocktail party stuff. people are not swapping 3 letter, 5 letter symbols at cocktail parties, not like it was in the 90s. dagen: in the firebreathing
6:35 am
rage about the latest trump tweet, not the nuts and bolts of the american economy. jobless claims were the lowest level yesterday since 1969, the year we landed on the moon. >> the younger people if they are going to be speculating speculating on that coin, they are not buying jacobs engineering, one or the other issues are public companies. the ubers of the world so on and so on stayed private companies. that has moderated the investment in a good way because you don't have people all the way in. it is more an issue for private equity. >> one of the biggest things that hampered the market is they don't know what multiple it should be trading at, 171/2 times earnings, do i want to put new money to work, operating margins, financing
6:36 am
costs going up, labor going up. a lot of these concerns, where do you think the market goes from here? where is the fair pe multiple? >> there is a great rule of thumb, the rule of 20, and you subtract the inflation rate and we have very fancy sophisticated models and they are about equal in terms of how well we do. it was pretty fair given where inflation is, going into appear go that lasts longer. the market is a more in line with long-term earnings trends which we know are more 7% or 8%. last year you discount a lot of earnings into 2017. that is why the broader market isn't doing as well as the earnings are doing. and it is more sustainable
6:37 am
after that. >> we are seeing sales growth, not just the tax cuts, should investors be acting if the earnings reports pools forward because of the threat of tariffs? >> the measure in my opinion is how well the cycle lasts. i'm not convinced we are late in the cycle as people think. it is possible but the full measure of the advocacy of these tax cuts will be capital spending. capital spending is virtually nonexistent since the great recession. a lot of financial engineering, if you look at capital spending you get productivity, productivity keeps labor costs low, keeps the fat out of the way and create wealth for productivity. the tariffs are an issue and part of this we have to get used to, commercial real estate does trade which is very broad,
6:38 am
not just trade but contributions to nato, part of one big omnibus negotiation makes people feel very uncomfortable but i wouldn't lose sight to answer your question of the fact that fiscal stimulus is enormous and i am not sure, looking at $400 billion in repatriated profits this year alone. dagen: let's stay on the fiscal stimulus, tax cut to.0, house republicans pushing ahead with plans to pass additional tax cuts. the senate not too hot on it telling the wall street journal nomination spending bills and flood insurance our priorities at of the new tax bill. >> one thing, i am a fan of the president but even if you are not, one thing you have to say. dagen: how dare you say that out loud in the middle of new york city. >> whether you like it or not the one thing you have to say,
6:39 am
not lazy. this guy is every day a new thing coming down the pike. if you are a politician you might say this change in the tax code is urban heart surgery, this is very complicated, takes a lot of political capital. i can see why if you are senator you are saying why don't we go with flood insurance, something we can do easily where do we want to take up, have another knockdown drag out fight on the tax code in the us is 3.5 million words to give some idea of the complexity of it. there is need for reform but i can see from a political point
6:40 am
of view other people are saying slow down. dagen: donald trump said in an interview he is ready and this is not that big news but coming from the president it is going to turn heads that he is ready to put tariffs on all, $505 billion of chinese goods we import into the united states and we pointed out that the president thinks he can win that fight based on tariffs because exports to china, only $130 billion a year representing 1% of gdp every year so he feels that is how he can win that fight but again the rhetoric is getting hotter and hotter and more extreme. how does this play out? >> the headline risk is part of the reason if you look at the difference between the performance of small caps and large caps, there has been a big difference, small caps hitting new highs, nasdaq, russell 2000, larger taps doing fine and the us stock market is an extremely important yardstick as to how he was doing. if you are looking at how the us stock market is doing versus china's stock market you may not think that. he is saying we are winning,
6:41 am
what is the problem? i am not justifying it but from his perspective when it is a problem i might change. dagen: i catch a lot of heat because i am anti-tariff. i can safely say that but i keep hammering it because i know people who have been hurt by steel and aluminum tariffs by the pushback from china because it is not just exports and imports and tariffs on those goods but what china is going to do to businesses, general motors makes its cars in china that it sells or even the soybean farmer, a third of sales have been cut off. >> somebody's aux is going to be gorged by this. by the same token just practically speaking the president has a different approach which is anonymous approach but i take comfort in the fact i would be more worried if he were a lawyer.
6:42 am
the reason being they would negotiate this thing to death until you have deal fatigue and it would be over. the fact that he was a businessman and a good businessman means they are going to have a settlement. any negotiation can be very uncomfortable with risk to the market. >> he went in to the g7 and said that given of all tariffs, you get rid of your tariffs and i will get rid of my tariffs. their heads exploded. >> and you have to get rid of the subsidies. macron was saying we don't know what to do. >> are you concerned? all these countries going on without the united states, the eu joining forces with japan, germany, china, working on something with canada and mexico. where does that leave the
6:43 am
united states? tpp? >> i'm not that worried about it mainly because this is the best time if you are going to renegotiate trade this is the best time to do it because you have all this fiscal stimulus. in washington dc, dan is great. the ratio is getting smaller but looking at fiscal stimulus to trade drag, it was 10-1 and now it is 7-1. the good news it is 7-1, the bad news is it was 10 two months ago. dagen: race to $1 trillion market, apple, amazon yesterday hit 900 billion. i have a bet with kevin. amazon is going to win. >> you know what you want to do. >> first is amazon, amazon gets

7:03 am
imports in china every year, $34 billion with an additional $16 billion on deck, another $200 billion and another $200 billion, that would take us to 450. based on what we heard today we already know this is how he is planning to negotiate. >> it had its effect on the currency markets. we see the dollar get stronger and the president had concerns about that and you see that way out, i don't want the fed to raise rates anymore. i think he is starting to contemplate the ramifications and repercussions that could be happening now where he thinks we are in such position of strength, 25% of global gdp. dagen: the economy is strong. >> listen, that move, the world will move on without us and we
7:04 am
are starting to see talks of that. japan hasn't said a word about tariffs. when they start to mention it that will put the pressure on. dagen: we will see. the markets have been extremely resilient during all this. investors react to escalating trade tensions, donald trump is prepared to slap tariffs on all $505 billion worth of chinese products imported into the us every year. german chancellor angela merkel speaking out on trade this morning warning potential us auto tariffs would go against wto world, joining us now former presidential candidate mike huckabee, what is your take on this? at least in the short run it doesn't seem to be getting better or getting the us to a position we are renegotiating trade deals and negotiating freer trade, fair trade. >> the goal of the president is not short run, it is long run.
7:05 am
his ultimate goal, people don't remind themselves, to have no tariffs. go. true free-trade which we don't have. to stop people stealing intellectual property, to stop people from violating the trade agreements and dumping things onto the market to undercut american manufacturers, suppliers and providers and this is a president i don't people fully appreciate, a guy who blinks, he goes into a fight and stay there and pummel the other side until they give up. if anybody thinks donald trump is weak going into this or has a bluff mentality they totally don't understand the man and i say that from having stood on the stage with him during the campaign and watched him absolutely pound people into the wood floor. look at the long-term, not the short term to understand this. dagen: investors are quite
7:06 am
rational and they do see that, they are willing to step back and wait and see what comes of this because the stock market, i have been accused of having my hair on fire by people in the administration because i'm not a fan of tariffs. the stock market has been incredibly patient so far with the president and goes to your point. >> the reason the market is patient is they do understand. this is a long game, not a game, he's not playing checkers, he's playing chess and playing to win and looking at this from the standpoint of what is good for america. i am so glad i have a president who says what is best for america's long-term rather than what is going to make things look good for the next political election cycle. we have not had that kind of presidential leadership and let me tell you we had week sort of
7:07 am
capitulating leadership and always just rolled over and let people because we didn't want to upset anything. the result is we are getting our heads handed to us. why don't we try this and just see acting from a position of strength and acting from a principle of true free-trade we don't end up with something much better. dagen: i tried to be balanced on this because there are american businesses getting hurt by steel and aluminum tariffs, getting hurt by the fights we have picked so far and you have to say to those people we understand and the white house is going to have to say to them you are going to have to put up with this pain and so we can work this out. >> you are seeing a lot of those sectors, agriculture is a good example, who do understand we are taking a bit of a hit right now but the administration is doing everything possible to try to ameliorate some of those concerns and challenges and
7:08 am
issues and pains. at the same time say to them stay in the boat, stay with us because in the long term we want to put you in a place where you are not going around hat in hand begging foreign countries to play fair and undermining your basic industry. dagen: socialists taking liberal message to kansas. bernie sanders and new york democratic congressional candidate alexandria cortez teaming up to 10 pain -- campaign for other democrats this afternoon as cortez is facing backlash over her explanation of the current low unemployment rate which was so wrong it was laughable with senator elizabeth warren doubling down on those claims as well. listen to this. >> unappointed is low because everyone has two jobs. unemployment is low because people are working 60, 70, 80
7:09 am
hours a week and can barely feed their kids. >> when people are working at minimum wage jobs that won't support them or working two, three or four jobs to pay the rent and keep food on the table, simply saying the and employment figures have gone down just doesn't get you there. dagen: that is not how the unemployment rate is calculated and people with multiple jobs is 5% of the people working in this country versus 150 million people with one job and 5% of those in the workforce have multiple jobs and she brags about having an economics degree. >> i wonder where are these fact checkers that love to fact check conservatives and republicans, half the time they are not right about what they so-called fact check. the girl wonder they are, the 21-year-old wonder king who is
7:10 am
now a savant for economics, good grief, if anybody wants to see what happens when you move toward a greater level of socialism let's just take everybody down to venezuela and let them stand in line for the toilet paper you can't even get any more and ask them is this the country you want? is this the economy you embrace? elizabeth warren talking about people with poor jobs just pulled that out of nowhere, the question is you have one job, being a senator. why don't you show up and do it and that includes confirming some of the nominations the president has made, it includes trying to do your job as a senator rather than going around making up stuff like a fiction writer. dagen: there has been a lot of pushback on those cortez comments, the reason magazine wrote people working multiple jobs has no distorting effect on the unemployment rate. it is calculated by the number
7:11 am
of unemployed people divided by the number of people in the labor force. that is how you get to that number and it is astonishing to me so many liberals will sit there and buy their head and go that is right, abolish ice. the republicans have to just be totally excited by the lunacy. >> let's just hope these are the spokespeople the democrats want to put forward. add to that joe biden and hillary clinton and it is the mother load. why don't we go ahead and say the number one priority in america is getting rid of plastic drinking straws because you have celebrities saying there are 500 million drinking straws a day, you know that number came from? a 16-year-old kid on a video that has no basis in fact, these are the most feckless people i have ever seen and the sad thing is people are paying attention to them as if they have something to say and they don't.
7:12 am
>> i want to say you are hitting the nail on a 5.talking about elizabeth more needs to be doing her job because she is so concerned about people working four jobs why doesn't she vote on tax plan 2.0? why doesn't she lower the tax rate for personal people? just go out and do it and put more money in their pockets so they can feed their families better and i think the biggest problem we are going to have is the narrative you are talking about going into the midterms. what do you think democrats will hang their shingle ongoing in and trying to do their blue wave? >> i think you are exactly right. it is absurd to me the democrats and the republicans, let's be fair, some of the republicans in the senate don't want to take on senate tax plan 2.0 because it is hard work. you signed up for hard work. do it or get out of the way and let someone else coming who is willing to.
7:13 am
i think the democrats are in a tough spot. right now they're only slogans we are so cool we don't need ice. that is their slogan. we are going to open the borders, raise your taxes, take away your bonuses, capitulate to foreign governments and go back to being the nation of weakness. i can't see that selling with most people in america who actually -- i don't see it. anybody with iq above broccoli should understand that is not a winning solution to making america even good again much less great again. dagen: i want to turn to the nfl the league suspending its rules over the national anthem announcing it is working toward resolution with players union. this announcement as miami dolphins players protesting on the field could reportedly be suspended for up to four games, your quick response. >> it is clear that the nfl is in salesman, they cannot figure out if their job is to play football or politics.
