in private. thanks to everyone who responded. >> we appreciate, as always. we will see you tomorrow. >> we will. "fox & friends" starts right now. bye. good morning. it's tuesday, may 20. i'm elisabeth hasselbeck. happening now, he played a cop on the hit show "the shield," but this morning he is the one in cuffs. the show's star arrested after his wife was found shot dead. this developing story and details straight ahead. >> veterans across the country left to die while waiting for care they were promised but how did the president of the united states, commander in chief, find out about the scandal? >> i believe that we learned about this through the reports. i will double check if that's not the case. but that's when we learned about them. >> oh, he saw it on tv? if it wasn't for the press, what would he know is going on in his own
administration? maybe nothing. >> good thing he gets cable or does he have the dish network? he walked on stage to speak, then revealed his disability. >> as a person who stutters, i could be no more certain that in this room and in this hall are thousands of people who are far more talented at public speaking than i am. >> it is the commencement speech that has everybody talking. and he will join us live. by the way, i've talked to everyone i know. mornings are better with these friends. >> aww! >> this is christie yamaguchi. you're watching "fox & friends," the best show on ice. >> you were skating on thin ice yesterday. we didn't know where you were. you have been gone for a good reason. >> yeah. my mom turned 80. should i have said that? >> not really. she had a big birthday. >> we had a huge party
sunday and thought i woulding useless on monday if i showed up at 4 in the morning. we had the grandkids host her reflective tape. my mom's graduating to 80 so we did a little tape. we did it when they were 9, 8, 7 and 6. what do we do 80? they hosted and did interviews. >> where did they get that from? >> i have no idea. >> we know she's watching right now. happy birthday. >> happy birthday. >> probably not at 6. maybe at 7. >> let's talk about what's going on today. later on today the house of representatives is going to vote on the v.a. management accountability act. it's going to let the secretary of the v.a. fire the bureaucrats responsible for the scandal. unlike a lot of legislation on capitol hill, this is actually bipartisan. there are 118 cosponsors, 5 of them are democrats. let's face it, people are hearing about this scandal for the first time in the
last couple of weeks. a lot of people have known there's red tape at the v.a., long waits. we had no idea people were dying. >> apparently the president either. he's been finding out through watching the news, as the white house has indicated. never leave a man behind. you hear that expression often in the military. it should also be something that the president should know quite well-being the commander in chief. when you look at this map, 19 states right now that are being looked at, at least -- this is just the beginning here in terms of mismanagement when it comes to the v.a. and wait times for our veterans when they come home just to get the care that they deserve. >> as these stories broke, more whistle-blowers are coming forward. one of the biggest yesterday you guys had on the show, peter johnson jr. contacted, you have 19 states, at least 7 cities and more to come. the question is where is the president on this since it broke? and think about what he said since 2008. and how odd is it that the
president again, his spokesperson, jay carney, was asked how the president found out about it. he found out it in a similar way he found out about fast and furious, the i.r.s. through the news. listen. >> when you say there are problems, the fact that there have been bureaucracy. give me specific allegations that i think were reported first by your network out of phoenix, i believe. we learned about them through the reports. i will double check if that is not the case. that is when we learned about it and that is when, as i understand, secretary shinseki learned about them. >> for jay carney to say we learned about it, maybe he found out about it, jay carney did. but that is a lie about the obama and biden transition team. remember back in 2008, yesterday cbs produced a memo that showed that they were briefed by the bush team, look, all sorts of problems; there are
problems associated with scheduling, wait times and waiting lists. essentially the bush people said at the v.a. there are problems. they've got these fake waiting lists. the obama-biden team knew about it in 2008. for jay carney yesterday to say we heard about it on the news, that is a flatout lie, but that is a pattern. how many times have we heard the president say stuff like that? >> the fast and furious program when in fact everyone knows -- the president did not know about this tactic until he heard about it on, through the media. >> let me take the i.r.s. situation first. i first learned about it from the same news reports that i think most people learned about this. i think it was on friday. >> as i said yesterday in my statement, other than press reports, we have no knowledge of any attempt by the justice department to seek phone records of the associated press. >> do you know when he first knew that there was a problem? >> well, i think;!,b!,b!,b!,b1e clear fairly early on, the first couple of days. >> but not before that,
though? not before october? >> so the president of the united states, the commander in chief, is same way my uncle bruce does? this is not acceptable. it's absolutely not acceptable. and you certainly can't -- do you not care? do you not want to care and know? do you know that you're the president of the united states? charles krauthammer asking this. >> the administration cannot hide the president reported to be madder than hell which i suppose is an improvement over secretary shinseki who apparently was only mad as hell, he is now even madder than hell. he acts as if -- and this is the same with the i.r.s., with all these other scandals, with the obamacare launch -- as if he stumbled upon the presidency and discovered all this horrible stuff is happening. he's in charge of these departments. at some point you've got to ask where has he been and where is he competence, the elementary competence he promised when he ran in
2008? >> here's the big difference. i remember the next day after the i.r.s. scandal broke in those press reports, at least the president spoke. after fast and furious broke, he spoke the next day. now the spokesperson is trying to spin his way out of this saying he's so mad, going to get to the bottom of it. i don't understand why the president is delaying. it doesn't make sense. >> cbs noted a major allegation as fraud was confirmed. just last year, yet nothing was done. did you not know? did you know and do nothing? that seems to be the case as far as looking at these 19-plus states. >> you look at what cbs reported last night that the transition team, the obama-biden team knew back in 2008 that there was a problem with these waiting lists. they knew back then. so what's the president going to say? yeah, i knew about it.
i just didn't do anything about it. meanwhile, while you've got this brewing, on the other side of the house what they're trying to do is get these, the house select committee on benghazi going. and it sounded like yesterday nancy pelosi might actually announce whether or not they're going to take part. meanwhile on-line and also with a couple of leftie groups, they're trying to get one particular democrat to be essentially the whole squadron. they've got one attack dog they're interested in, and it's this guy. >> the republican health care plan is this: die quickly. that's right. the republicans want you to die quickly if you get sick. >> they say that he was really strong on iraq and accountability. he was also strong, they say, with the bank finance system, that he doesn't use his time just to blow v.a.,
that he comes directly at it. if he feels there is something there he can kick out of the park, let's hear it. let's have a legitimate hearing. if he's going to be direct and not pontificate, put him out there. >> they have the ability to make it a legitimate investigation by sending more than one democrat on to this investigation committee. you have trey gowdy who said this should transcend politics. this should not be political. our people died. we want to get to the bottom and understand why. for the very least, for their families to understand why and get to the truth. you have him to be a spoke in the wheel. and to disarm and completely dismantle any republican argument, this isn't about republican or democrat. this is to find out the truth and find out why americans died in benghazi. >> a spoke in the wheel or like putting a playing card in there, making noise. according to moveon.org, they would like to see it turned into a kangaroo court at the "washington post," greg sergeant, who is a lefty guy, he writes if republicans are doing a
full-on freak show, why not send a proven master of playing by the freak show's rule. what they're going to do, rather than send a prosecutor or something great as an investigator or interrogator, they're going to show that guy the door. you be our representative and try to blow things up. >> that wasn't dick sergeant, which for my money, was the better one on "bewitched" >> which of the darrins was he? >> the second darrin. he had the smaller face. hey, heather childers. >> speaking of television shows, have you ever seen "the shield"? breaking overnice, michael jace who stars in the hit show detained by police in los angeles suspected of shooting and killing his wife. according to tmz jace called the police himself. he admitted to pulling the
trigger with his kids inside the house. detectives are questioning the actor right now. he still has not been placed under arrest. happening today, it is the primary's version of super tuesday. six states holding elections. the spotlight on a couple of key race force you. in georgia, businessman david purdue, cousin of the former governor, in a tight race to replace retiring senator saxby chambliss. if no one gets the majority it will take a run-off to decide who will face democrats, michelle nunn, in the fall. in kentucky, incumbent republican leader mitch mcconnell leads the polls against matt bevin, he was caught giving a speech at a cock fighting rally. in pennsylvania, idaho, and oregon, also hosting primaries today. tensions mounting between the u.s. and china over unprecedented cyber spying. charges that china

>> coming up, did you see this? >> as a person who stut tkers, i could -- as a person who stutters, i could be no more certain that in this room and in this hall are far -- people far more talented at public speaking than i am. >> it has everyone speaking this morning and he is going to join us live next. >> plus, why is an elephant taking a dip in the ocean in florida? you got to hear this. ♪ ♪ ♪ moving and a grooving

were at indiana, when you were in college, you kept your stuttering challenge pretty much a secret; right? >> i did to the point that you can. >> and so why did you choose graduation in front of 17,000 people as the time to announce it? >> because i pursued this opportunity because of the e-mails that i have received since that day. these are e-mails from moms and dads who have children that have a vast array of challenges, and they have told me that for the seven and a half minutes that they watched me talk, their children were in tears because they for that time did not doubt themselves. they dared themselves. >> surely. the amount of courage it
took you is unbelievable. >> well, i cannot thank you enough for saying that. but in the end this is not about me or anything that i've done. this is about people and what i believe that they can become. >> excellent. for the people who were not in attendance, parker, what was your message? >> it's a very easy thing. it is encapsulated by three very simple words. it is possible. whatever it is, whatever challenge you have. i issued a challenge of my own, which is not to doubt yourself but to dare yourself. >> all right. wise words. well, congratulations on graduating. what do you want to do now that you've got some free time ahead of you? >> i could tell you that my end goal is to help out the people of this great country in whatever capacity i possibly can.
i don't know if that's going to be through politics or law. but what i can say is that i will not -- while my speech disorder certainly keeps me from saying some words perfectly, it will not keep me from pursuing my goal. >> well, your goals are clear. and it was clear that you were inspiring to so many people at your graduation. hats off to you, parker mantell. we wish you the best whatever you do. >> thank you so much, sir. >> very well done. if you haven't seen it, go on-line. he is absolutely terrific. still ahead, a home knocked down in seconds after mother nature unleashes her fury. just look at that. listen to this. ten thousand babies under the age of three are being given adhd drugs.

landslide in bosnia. the area hit by the worst floods in more than a century. no one was inside at the time or else we would not have shown that. here's elisabeth. >> a shocking new study, more than 10,000 toddlers are be prescribed drugs for adhd and a.d.d. despite pediatric guidelines stating children who are younger than four years old should not be taking the medication. who is to blame here? your child's pediatrician? dr. ned joins us this morning. this is alarming. more than 10,000 toddlers, they are still in diapers and they are being prescribed medicine like what? aderrol? >> sure. people are looking for a solution to an age old problem, rambunctious toddlers. the solution is not to give them medication. the solution is to play
with them, be with them, not give them a pill in the hopes of quieting them down. >> we look at the centers for disease control here, georgia, 1 in 225 toddlers being medicated for adhd. that is 760 cases alone. this is more than alarming. what sort of side effects or long-term effects does this have on a little baby? >> we don't know, which is worrisome. you don't want to give them medication when you don't know exactly what it's going to do. we do know there are much better solutions than giving them medication, the effects of which you're not really sure of. this is a controlled substance. it is not a trivial intervention. the intervention that parents should be using and pediatricians should be encouraging is human connection. put away the electronics, be with your child. yes, it's labor intensive. taking care of a toddler -- you've done it, i've done it. it's labor intensive.
it is in no way a call for medication. >> let's talk about responsibility on the part of pediatricians who are prescribing this. are they qualified to prescribe adhd medicines like aderol and ritalin to a two-year-old and three-year-old? >> if they were well trained they would not prescribe. they are giving in to the demands of their patients. >> why? >> pressure. they want their patients to be happy. it's really bad. it shouldn't be happening. any more than blindly prescribing antibiotics should happen. >> you're saying the pediatricians attention in some of these cases may be making the parents feel better and not the health of the child? >> absolutely. it is giving in to the pressure of the moment. it shouldn't happen. the pediatrician should take the time to say listen, it's hard being the parent of a toddler. this is what you can do, and walk them through the steps. instead they do the quick
thing which is to write a prescription. >> if there is a parent out there who maybe has a desperate moment and have gone to their doctor right now, are watching this program and saying my child is on this medication, what do i do? what is their next step? >> get them off the medication. >> how? right away? >> you can abruptly stop these meds. there is no danger to that. do not give them another aderol, do not give them another ritalin and find a doctor who can help you learn how to be a parent to a toddler. it is not easy. it is labor intensive but it does not include medication as part of the treatment regiment. >> thank you for being with us this morning. listen to this before you grill this memorial day weekend. this is happening here. beef making people across the country sick. the recall that you need to know about before you take out the grill. one school charging for

water was. brian, your high school graduation, did it cost a lot of money? there is a school that is charging the kids. >> i don't know if brian's graduation coming up june 1 is going to cost me money. >> in braydenton county, florida, at manatee high school, looking at their website, the senior fee if you want to walk during graduation, your 20 bucks is due by friday. but here's the interesting thing. you can actually buy premium seating real close to the stage for 200 bucks if you would like, if you have the 200 bucks. it has a number of parents absolutely furious. keep in mind, kids have gone to manatee high school for four years, it's the end of a long school career, and now they're going to hold up the parents for 200 bucks if they want to sit close to the stage. >> apparently ten rows are made available for purchase this year.
for a bench. $200 for a bunch you can purchase there. according to that paper there, the school is apparently $12,000 in estimated graduation costs in the hole there. the graduation is costing $12,000 for the high school and maybe it is the way they're dealing with that. >> i have no problem with this. >> are you kidding? >> all i want to see is the budget. if the budget looks normal, a normal school budget and you're $12,000 in debt at a time people don't want to be paying high taxes because you know the property taxes go to school, they're in debt. which the juniors, freshmen and sophomores will be paying for, it will give the people a chance to spend their own money, not a demand, to do that. guess what? it sold out in a couple of hours. >> this is graduation. shouldn't it be included in your taxes? >> they charge you for the gown already. and you've got to give it back. >> here's the thing. graduation, you're supposed to recognize the kids for the hard work, not what
family has the most money to buy the -- let's get the sky box up front. if i was one of the parents there, i was absolutely be furious. keep in mind when your kids are in school, particularly for proms and stuff like that, they have all these fund-raisers, so have a fund-raiser for graduation. would it kill you to do that? then have a lottery as to who sits close to the stage. but to reward the parents who have got the most dough, is that capitalism? it seems a little harsh. >> it does. >> but the people that pay the most at the fund-raisers are the ones with the most money. they are the ones who buy the cupcakes and put the prizes in for the big raffles and maybe buy a lot of tickets for the 50/50. >> you have the campout so you get the good seat. >> like how you got sting tickets. >> exactly. >> weigh in and tell them how wrong they are.
heather childers. >> okay, money bags. >> after graduation a lot of times you have a barbecue. you need to hear about this story. where is the beef? you may want to throw it out before that party. 11 people in four states, they are sick with e. coli prompting a national beef recall. the department of agriculture says the 1.8 million pounds of beef was produced by wolverine packing company between march 31 and april 18 sent to restaurants in ohio, michigan, missouri and massachusetts. a near disaster at newark airport in new jersey. two planes packed with people come within feet of colliding mid air. the ntsb just releasing details of the incident. it actually happened on april 24. a united airlines flight trying to land a few hundred feet above an express jet flight taking off on an intersecting runway. the express jet pilot bound for memphis could be heard telling air traffic control the united flight got, quote, real close. you think?
the united flight from san francisco was ordered to abort its landing. calls are growing for president obama to help free the american marine who is currently in a mexican prison. sergeant andrew tamarisi has been locked up for more than a month over an apparent mistake. the 25-year-old says he accidentally drove into mexico with three u.s. registered firearms. his mother just got into the prison to see her son face-to-face. fox news was there when she came out. >> he's not a criminal. he made a mistake and made a wrong turn and said right at the border, i've got guns. the whitehouse.gov petition, that is the only hope that i have that the white house acknowledge he is in prison. i haven't heard from president obama. >> perhaps she should. the petition needs 100,000 signatures for the white house to respond. right now it has 23,000.
finally from michigan, a suburb taking a cue from the movie "demolition man." do you remember that? remember that film? every time sylvester stallone cursed, a machine popped out a ticket. it is actually a reality in the town of brighton, police ticketing people who swear, all geared towards disorderly teens. we had one of those. a nickel. >> by the end of the year, how much would be in it? >> i was broke. >> i tell you, on the other story, heather, you brought up, there was a great job last night to talk about how easy it is to be on those roads. if you get in the wrong lane, you cannot get out of the lane that sends you into mexico. >> if you're in the right lane, you're in mexico without a doubt. we're in the lane now to go to the weather.

>> when he took office in january of last year, north carolina's unemployment rate stood at 8.8%. now it has dropped to 6.2%. >> north carolina governor pat mccrory is to my immediate left. he's here to tell us about lowering taxes and becoming a probusiness environment within north carolina to get the state back on track. welcome, governor. >> great to be in new york city. >> you must be happy with this report card that you bring to town. >> when i was sworn into office on january 5 of last year we were the fifth highest unemployment rate in the country. north carolina is about to become the ninth most populous state in the nation. >> so many people living in new york, we were wondering
where they were going. >> i'm setting up a commerce office in new york city. >> what's the draw? >> the draw is one is we're paying off our debt of unemployment. north carolina owed the federal government $2.4 billion of unemployment compensation. most people don't realize that it's not free when you take this money. it's borrowed money and we owed the federal government $2.4 billion. and we were raising taxes on businesses to pay off the interest, not even the principal. so we were lowering that debt. we lowered our compensation to what our neighbors pay in south carolina, tennessee and virginia. and the second thing is we did major tax reform where we're now competitive with the rest of the southeast in income tax and corporate tax. we're becoming more business friendly and saying come to north carolina, create and grow a business. >> it all sounds terrific. do you think part of the reason that your unemployment rate has gone down is that unlike a lot of other states with very liberal unemployment benefits, you have people toe the line. you don't give them much, as much as other states.
>> we were the ninth highest unemployment benefits in the country and we weren't competitive with south carolina, tennessee and virginia and therefore their costs were much lower. i was mayor of charlotte for 14 years. south carolina's unemployment benefits were lower and our debt was higher. we've got about $500 a week here. >> for how many weeks? >> 20-some weeks. i haven't got the exact figures. not extended. the administration, congress would not let us extend unemployment if we lowered unemployment to what south carolina, tennessee and virginia were paying. that was actually crazy on their part. >> why can't the federal government take note of what's going on? why can't the president look at what's happening in states like yours and say this is a pretty good plan. let's do that. >> we listened to what employers were saying. basically we had openings for jobs even when we were at 9.4% unemployment. employers were saying we have openings but people weren't taking them or we couldn't find the qualified
labor. we're dealing with that. now people are taking the jobs that are open. second, we're initiated vocational training programs in our high schools and two-year colleges to say learn the trades. we're now telling people you don't have to go to four-year college degrees to become a success. you have several different career pathways. one of them is become a mechanic, become an electrician, become a health care worker because that's where the demand is right now. become an engineer. >> watch cam new top because you guys are up -- cam newton because you guys are up and coming. >> going to be named the charlotte hornets in the nba. north carolina is on the rebound. our goal is to get people back to work. >> you're doing a good job. governor, thank you very much for stopping by. >> thank you, governor. coming up, we told you yesterday about the outrage over the 9/11 museum gift shop. this morning new fallout about where the items being
sold are actually made. >> an explosive new report reveals the president knew about the abuse in the v.a. administration as far back as 2008. did he fail our nation's heroes? the judge is here with his own jury. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ tigers, both of you. tigers? don't be modest. i see how you've been investing. setting long term goals. diversifying.
that they have earned. to all our wounded warriors and to the families who laid a loved one to rest, america will not let you down. >> well, the president has long said veterans are one of his top priorities. but did his administration know that the v.a. neglect was happening as far back as 2008? joining us now is fox news judicial analyst, judge andrew napolitano. some trouble there. this 08 report to his transition team showed the bush administration says we got problems, they're fudging the results. they're change their admissions and their appointment schedules. >> there doesn't seem to be any issue with the fact that the obama administration was on notice about this before the president took office. it's almost inconceivable that they did nothing in the five years until these death and these waiting lists became known to all of us. it's a head scratcher. i can't figure out why they would be so neglectful for such a sympathetic and well-deserving
audience. there is no political game here. it's just imcompetence, mismanagement, and sweeping it under the rug in the hopes the public won't notice. >> here are excerpting from the report. audits completed since 2005 have been identified and noncompliance with the policies and procedures for the scheduling. inaccurate reporting of patients waiting times and errors in electronic waiting lists. the bush administration says listen, we're having problems with this. it's probably going to get worse 'cause more are coming home. >> if those errors that you just read about were -- if any of it was intentional in order to make the records look better than they really were -- >> which they seem to be. >> it looks like it is, we're talking about federal crimes. you're talking about a serious and large number of criminal prosecutions. that in turn will trigger the right of these people who suffered because a loved one died or person who suffered because they didn't get medical attention and ran them out of
time, to sue the federal government. you're talk being a lot of litigation, both criminal and civil. >> and they have it coming to them. here is an example of what must be proven in a civil lawsuit. the disability or death was caused by hospital care, either bay department employee or department facility. and it was caused by the department's carelessness, negligence or lack of proper skill. they have an i.g. report looking at the phoenix situation and trying to hammer away that number down on the 40 they say died because of their lack of care. >> when the inspector general tells you that a large number of people died and then the bureaucrats that run the department start saying don't believe the inspector general, you know it's a very, very serious problem there. why hasn't the president said anything? you ran all those clips of the president saying how he's going to help the veterans. why doesn't he acknowledge this? >> unbelievable. maybe he's waiting for the news report to confirm it. we'll see you throughout the day. coming up, he was catapulted
into the national spotlight after he criticized president obama at the prayer breakfast and did you know the white house demanded an apology? dr. ben carson here live with the story that i guess only steve and elisabeth can get 'cause i'm with the judge. plus, calling all wanna be politicos.

what's your policy? good morning. today is tuesday, may 20. i'm elisabeth hasselbeck. breaking overnight, he played a cop on tv, but this morning he's the one in handcuffs. the actor being questioned by police after his wife was shot dead. president obama says he's madder than hell about the deadly v.a. waiting list. now victims' families have a message for him. >> if he called me tonight, i would simply say, you're a liar. i don't trust you. if it was up to me, i would fire him. >> wow. more from that woman straight ahead. and so much for learning in college. >> who sings the hit song "happy"? >> pharre will, l williams. >> do you know why the reason benghazi is in the news?
>> no. >> should we be concerned that this is the future of america? america right now nodding yes. a little scary. but we're going to take care of you 'cause tuesday mornings are better with friends. >> this is kid rock. you're watching "fox & friends". >> he sounds cool intrusion us. >> he was wearing sunglasses. >> and a hot. >> and he came down and needed an ottoman. sat there on the couch like he's been here for 20 years. >> it's kid rock, come on. you're going to be relaxed your whole life. >> what is his real name? >> he's grown up rock. >> right. >> send it to us if you know that. we're going to talk about the scandal at the veterans affairs administration. all sorts of trouble. later on the house will vote on
the v.a. management accountability act. what that's supposed to do is going to give eric shinseki the ability to fire the bureaucrats responsible for this scandal where they've got all these waiting lists where people are dying waiting for treatment. >> first they're going to do a three-week audit, which people think will be a catastrophe. >> the house is? >> no, eric shinseki. >> they're going to check themselves? >> yeah. they're going to find out which wrong, which i think we're ahead of the game with that. >> apparently the president didn't know or did he, that this v.a. scandal is now spreading like a wild virus through the united states. at minimum we have 19 states. when you see this map in red, it's devastating to think our veterans are being left on these medical waiting lists, not getting the care they so deserve. the expression never leave a fellow soldier behind, well, the president, commander in chief, seems to be doing just that. apparently he just found out
about this on the news, the allegations. this is jay carney on that. >> when you say these problems, the fact that there have been bureaucracy -- specifically were reported first by your network out of phoenix we learned about them through the reports. i will double-check if that's not the case. but that's when we learned about them and that's when as i understand it, secretary shinseki learned about them. >> secretary shinseki has known about them for years. the president of the united states, when he became president, the transition team with george w. bush, they said essentially, look, the waiting lists, they're fake. you got to do something about it. then the president has come out a number of times and said, i'm going to do something about the problems and the red tape and things like that. one of the things that the white house is doing right now is saying we're 100% behind eric shinseki. why would that be? they say he's the guy in the job right now, he can fix the problems once they do the
three-week audit that brian was talking about. here is the thing, eric shinseki is the one guy who, if they fire, can go look, i've been telling them for years it was all screwed up and for them to now say they didn't know, that's crazy. >> i would add to this, the spin over the weekend is unbelievable. dennis mcdonough saying the president is madder than hell. then we have some on these sunday shows saying, why are we going to these wars in the first place? excuse me? we're debating on the need for war as opposed to the treatment for those who fight the war? you got to be kidding me. and wait for this one. i'm sure it's going to be coming this week. well, if the bush administration knew about it, why didn't they fix it? that was one thing. that is not allowed. you can not go back 5 1/2 years and say, well, if george bush knew in 2007. there were things done and guess what. then secretary gates for the bush administration went in there and cleaned house at walter reed. he demanded answers immediately. there has been no quick action.
have you seen secretary of defense hagel do anything? >> but they didn't know. they're just finding out about this nowering according to what jay carney said. the president didn't know. did he know every time he shook the hand of a serviceman or woman in our nation that's been fighting for our freedom, you're shake the hand of the veterans that are waiting for their care. some of them don't have the opportunity anymore. this is sally barns, she lost her father. he was a victim in this scandal which is now nationwide and this is what she has to say to our president. >> if he called me tonight, i would simply say, you're a liar. i don't trust you. and if it was up to me, i would fire him and i believe he's a part of it as well. he gave us nothing. nothing. all he wants to do is go on the mission and still continue to let the veterans die, including my pop and i don't like you very much, mr. president. >> we still have not heard from the president of the united states in over three weeks. but the house, as i said, is going to vote on this
accountability bill later on today. 118 co-sponsors, including a number of democrats as well. extraordinarily, the veterans affairs committee yesterday, only the second time in history, has subpoenaed letters and e-mail from and to eric shinseki and other v.a. officials over what happened in phoenix. so during the fact that suddenly judicial watch is able to get a bunch of e-mails revealing what has happened in the pasty.iú regarding that scandal, let's find out if these folks can get to the bottom of it. >> and if we'll hear from the president, when he was in manila was the last time he spoke. as we approach memorial day, this is gut wrenching. here is heather telling us what's happening in the world. >> majority james richie, by the way. kid rock's real name. huge kid rock fan. breaking overnight, michael jace, the actor who starred in

upcoming third season. one of the top roles, director of the nsa, the baltimore-based casting agency looking for men and women aged 45 to 55. hunt or be hunted. >> indeed. >> great show. it will be interesting to see who they choose. >> by the way, i don't want to be a spoiler, but do we know, should we tell everybody that that governor of pennsylvania, the wanna be governor of pennsylvania -- should we tell them what happened? didn't actually survive much longer? >> that was the first season. >> okay, fine. >> frank underwood, who is now the vice president, wound up in the car with him and then he became asphyxiated. but that's a long story. you have to watch "the house of cards." >> so you don't think it was natural causes either? >> no! >> okay, fine. >> now vice president was wearing the disguise. >> you don't think she jumped in front of that subway? >> no, he pushed her. >> little by little, i'm going
to get to you expose the entire series. >> he was catapulted into the spotlight after criticizing president obama at the national prayer breakfast. but dr. ben carson says something pretty outrageous happened next. you haven't heard it before. you're going to hear it next as he joins us. and brian thought the jet pack was great because it's about to get even better. is this a true travel of the future? let's hope it's not because that's a soggy way to go captain: this is a tip. bellman: thanks, captain obvious.

it was this speech at the 2013 national prayer breakfast that put a neurosurgeon in the national spotlight. >> pc is dangerous because you see, this country, one of the founding principles was freedom of thought and freedom of expression. and it muffles people. it puts a muzzle on them. and at the same time keeps people from discussing important issues while the fabric of this society is being changed. >> that particular address, that prayer breakfast did more than position dr. ben carson politically. it also drew backlash from members of the obama administration who claim that the speech was offensive and, according to dr. ben carson who joins us right now with a new book "one nation,," is a minutes after he gave that speech, someone called you and said what? >> i got a call from one of the organizers that said the white
house is very upset and you need to call the president and you need to apologize. >> why? >> i said, i talked to the president afterwards. he didn't seem upset. and there is no reason that he should be unless what i said applied to him. >> because what you said applied to america and not him in particular. >> exactly. >> and so you didn't. you didn't do that. had you ever heard from the white house since? >> well, i got an invitation to come to a presidential medal of freedom reunion, but i was busy that day. >> that was the second time you've been asked to speak at a national prayer breakfast. >> correct. the first time when bill clinton was president. it was a fantastic occasion. but when they asked me again, i said what? i said, has anybody ever done it twice? they said one person has, billy graham. i said, whoa. >> i got to do this. >> pressure. >> i said, i think the good lord has something he wants me to say. >> they asked you for your notes
ahead of time and you said i have no notes? >> i didn't know what i was going to say until the morning of the prayer breakfast. >> wow. what do you think about the phrase that's being used to describe you being called the black avenger? >> i think that's a very racist thing for anybody to say. you know, there needs to come a time when people look at people as people and what makes a person who they are? is it the color of their skin or is it their brain? i can tell you as a brain surgeon, it is definitely not the color of the skin. and the left in particular needs to get away from characterizing everything racially. we need to move beyond that. we're much further advanced. >> you know why they do that, because when they call somebody a racist, historically that has shut them up and shut them down. >> yes. and it's funny what's going on in our country now. the labeling, the demonization,
you know. if you're pro-life, then you've got to be antiwoman. if you're pro-traditional family, then you've got to be a homophobe. if you're white and disagree with a progressive black person, you're racist. if you're black and you disagree, you're crazy. it's so amazing that people allow themselves to be manipulated by those who are trying to divide us. that's why the book is called "one nation," because we are one nation and we're not enemies. the enemies are those people who are trying to divide us. >> you talk about talking to each other and using examples of marriage and both sides in marriage counseling think they're right. you think compromise has to fit in. i want to stick one area of expertise and that's health care. you got a lot of heat to this saying obamacare is second only to slavery. if i could paraphrase your thoughts, to what it can do to this country. >> and the issue that i was bringing up is not slavery.
the issue is that we have taken the most important thing we have as free americans and turned it over to the government. and you go and look at the neomarxist literature and see what they say and the need to bring america into in line with everybody. >> you have a plan. the other area i wanted to bring up is something you brought up in your book and it was a year ago when you were going to speak at johns hopkins in your final year, they didn't like your stand on traditional marriage. >> correct. >> they protests and you said okay. get somebody else. and now look what we have this year. >> yeah. basically what's happening is our universities, which are supposed to be the places that encourage free thought and free speech have moved 180-degrees in the other direction. a lot of the administrators at these universities are afraid to
stand up and oppose the students. so they cave. the students, that's what they are, they're students. they're immature. you find a lot of these people 20 years later and they say, i can't believe i acted like that. somebody has got to exercise some leadership here. >> it relates to leadership, the v.a. scandal we're looking at now and veterans not getting the treatment they deserve. look no further than this to describe how government health care can go. >> this is a wonderful harbinger of what's going to happen if we just put layers and layers of bureaucrats between the patients and the health care providers. >> no accountability, no one is to blame. they all point to somebody else 'cause it's not my job. >> that's the problem. this is symptomatic of all things that are going on with this gigantic government that you can't control. >> right. i tell you what, you are president of the united states. you just found out on the news, like our current president, about the v.a. scandal. how would you fix it in one easy step in it's not one easy step.
but what would you start with? >> there is no one easy step. but first of all, i would want to know who allowed this to occur. and whoever that was, i would debrief them, find out why they allowed it to occur, and then allow them to take a vacation and put in somebody who really has the kind of expertise and experience that is necessary to run an organization like that. and this is not saying anything about shinseki. >> that doesn't mean his management helps anything like that. >> correct. what people have to understand, he's a great general or he should have -- what he should have done is surrounded himself with people who knew how to do that kind of thing. >>(> thank you. >> we'll hear you on radio. >> thank you. well, it is one of the deadliest disasters in the
time for news by the numbers. just 8%. that's how many of the items sold at the 9-11 memorial museum were actually made in america. next -- >> you're the champ. >> i'm ready for this my whole life. >> wow. 150 bucks. that's how much it will cost for a piece of the stadium turf notre dame legends played on. the team now selling it off in two by five sections. the field being replaced with
artificial grass next season. you could have used joe montana as an example, but go with rudy. if i thought this jet pack was great, look at this jet pack. an $85,000 hover bike. developers announced the star wars-like rox will go on sale in 2017. its top speed is 5 million miles an hour -- 45 miles an hour. >> meanwhile, more extreme weather today possibly in the midwest. we could see tornadoes in cities like chicago and also columbus. did you know the rain that comes with these downpours and the twisters can be even more deadly than the actual funnel cloud? >> we're talking about flash floods, rushing water so powerful, it can wipe entire towns off the map. oftentimes that water comes so fast, that people don't have time to escape. >> that's why there are specially trained groups all across the country who
specialize in saving their lives. maria molina is here with one of their stories. what did you do? >> what did i do that i keep getting sent on these assignments? but these people are incredible. by the way, they're volunteers. so they have their own full-time jobs on the side that they do and then this is what they do extra to serve back to their communities. whenever there is a potential for flooding, these swift water rescue crews are standing by ready to jump in. i found out how they save lives. >> hold on! >> it's one of the most frightening feelings being swept away by a raging flood. it can happen to anyone, anywhere. you don't need to be in a river. just six inches of water is all it takes to be carried away. >> flooding and swift water and flood rescue is the leading disaster in the united states. typically our response for people that are swept away in vehicles or swept away in a
flash flood 'cause they didn't heed the warning. >> this instructor, mike, that gets people home alive. >> we had severe weather across the plains. very dynamic system. it's still on the move today. there is a concern for some flooding. >> when you're on the news, don't let the hurricanes come in. your efforts, it's predictable for us. >> swift water rescue teams are experts in everything. from towing someone to show with a rope, swimming after a victim. >> we perform this because the victim is too cold to catch the throw bag. >> in the most dangerous situations, using helicopters to save lives. it doesn't matter how they rescue somebody, when dealing with moving water, it's never easy. for rescuers and the victim, it's always back to basics. >> we call defensive swimming. lay on your back and feet up. if i am being pushed into an obstruction, i can use my feet
as springs to push off. we just can't float. 'cause if we do, the current will take us where it wants. you want to go to the right, you'll have the back of your they had that way in a 45-degree angle and kick and make back strokes. if you want to come to the left, keep back strobing. >> for victims, following your first instinct could be deadly. >> they're being swept away. the human brain says i want it all to stop. they put their feet down and when you do that, you become entrapped. >> in theory, grabbing to a nearby tree or rock seems like a good idea. but in reality, it's just dangerous. >> many of our victims grab and hold on to anything. but because the water is so powerful and relentless, she's only going to be able to maintain this position for a little bit she's swept away again. >> in the end, your first priority is to always get to shore. >> if you are swept away, the first thing you want to do is try to get out of that. any means you have of swimming,
get out. >> that water was only moving at 4 miles per hour. but the amount of force that i felt on my body from that water that wasn't moving that fast, it could during a flash flood was incredible. really shows how dangerous it is to be caught. >> i've been on some of those swift water rescues. they're challenging and you don't know how fast the water is going. in the story, you said don't hang on to the tree. don't hang on to the boulder 'cause then some other big stuff could come and that could be it. >> and you could get caught underneath. the power of that water rushing at you and that's when people can drown. these are very dangerous situations and this is one of the top weather disaster killers in the united states. flooding. something to always have in mind. >> got to think about it if your car is flooded, should i get out? if you don't have to, don't. >> i'm going to get maria on speed dial in case something bad
happens, how do i get out of this? >> coming up, smile like you mean it. it could be the key to your next promotion. we're going to detail that coming up. and remember when this democratic law maker said republicans want you to die? >> the republican health care plan is this, die quickly. that's right. the republicans want you to die quickly if you get sick. ♪ ♪ >> political stunt? what say you? ♪ ♪

prosecutor and so direct in his questioning on iraq situations and something with the banking system that they have an idea. >> they're going to actually have him go as a spoke in the wheel to the select committee on benghazi where they're trying to get answers on how four americans, including ambassador chris stevens, died not quickly. they died horrifically and this committee is being led by trey gowdy and they're searching for answers. if he's going to prosecute and try to get in there and probe into someone, it should be why why no one knew about this and why these americans were left to die. but if his focus then at the center of the target happens to be republicans, is that a good idea to have this guy in there? >> here is the thing, this started out as a joke on twitter and the blogs and now essentially what they're saying is, let's go ahead and gum up the works. let's turn it into a kangaroo court and have this particular guy. move on.org says our interest is to have someone with great credibility and stature among

they've an absolute no confidence in the process, distrust the treatment they're receiving, and they really have a fear of death or grave injury from the lack of treatment that they're receiving. they feel abandoned. they feel isolated. they feel forgotten. they feel anger at administrators. the president says he's mad as hell. look and see what these folks are saying. they also believe v.a. officials are more concerned about costs than cures, that they'd rather save money and get a bonus than actually cure veterans in america. we got some incredibly compelling e-mails. one from an alabama vet. i tried for two years to get an appointment to get a hearing aid that the v.a. said i needed. i left messages because i never got to talk to a person and never got a return call. i called the inspector general twice and never got an answer or got to talk to anyone. i just gave up. >> that's too bad. meanwhile, an e-mail from somebody whose brother died. my brother, greg, spent hours in
the waiting room just to be sent home. he needed urgent care, but was turned down. he was forced to go outside the v.a. system. by the time he received care, his cancer had spread beyond the ability to treat it. i watched him die. i couldn't believe how the v.a. treated our vets who served america without question. >> wow. one more. i applied for v.a. benefits in may of 2013 and was told the process would take six to eight months. i was diagnosed with a disease as a result of my service with the coast guard. when i checked in february of 2014, i was told they were running 12 months to review the case. i checked again last week and am now told they are running 16 to 18 months. that's mesothelioma. >> one from a woman who tried to get help from the v.a. in temple, texas, because her husband had thoughts of suicide.
they gave him a suicide hot line card and told him to come back to talk to a doctor about medication. but the doctor was not available when he went back. my husband hung himself at our family business about three hours after going to the v.a. >> she wrote to me, we were married for 26 years and the love of my life is now gone after serving his country honorably. he left behind two daughters. please shine the brightest light on this dark, dirty health care system. our veterans are exposed to it. we'll do it and do it again tomorrow. >> he went there for help and they said no. >> death. >> if you would like to contact peter johnson, jr., america's lawyer, the e-mail address is johnsonjr at foxnews.com or if you prefer to write a letter, write it to our world headquarters. >> we're staying with it. we're not giving up on it. >> they're counting on you. >> we're staying with it.

have received, moms and dads, who have children that have a vast array of challenges and they have told me that for the 7 1/2 minutes that they watched me talk, their children were in tears because for that time, they did not doubt themselves. >> parker, you were great. he says he wants to pursue a career in either politics or law. i think that he is well on his way. what do you think? those are your headlines. >> degree in political science and he worked for politicians, so good luck to him. >> steve, on a side note, do you remember how we were talking about "house of cards" and you said brian, season one -- >> we're through season 2 now. >> right. tracy burns wrote me that she had not finished season 1. so i apologize to everybody. >> somebody who joins us once a week to talk about the "house of cards" that is washington, d.c.
is laura ingraham. later today the house is going to vote on a bill that would give the secretary of the v.a. the authority to fire some of these bureaucrats responsible for the fake waiting lists, among other things. this is becoming a real scandal and yesterday, jay carney said the president found out about it watching the news just like a lot of other stuff. watch this sound bite montage. >> serious program, when in fact, everyone knows, the president did not know about this tactic until he heard about it through the media. >> let me takea#ód)q irs situatn first. i first learned about it from the same news reports that i think most people learned about this. i think it was on friday. >> as i said yesterday in my staple, i don't know press reports, we have no knowledge of any attempt by the justice department to seek phone records of the associated press. >> do you know when he first knew that there was a problem? >> well, i think it became clear fairly early on. the first couple of days --
>> not before that, though? not before october? >> no. >> every time there is a scandal, the president finds out on the news! >> yeah. isn't this the reason we elect people to high office, so they know stuff that's really important before the rest of us? otherwise just pull anyone off the street who can run the government because, well, i read about that in the newspaper, or that was on fox yesterday. so we're going to really do something about this. guys, this goes back to the theme that we've hit so many times on this program, which is in every ballooning government and ever increasing bureaucracy in government, that cannot be tamed, that cannot be managed, that cannot be run, especially by someone like barak obama who came into office with no managial experience, no experience in the business world. he had never run anything. and we are seeing the fruits of that right now. he refuses to take responsibility. people don't get fired. i would say this: if only barak
obama's team treated our veterans as well as they treat the mega donors to the democrat party, i think our veterans would be really happy today with their health care. but unfortunately, they don't get the star treatment and a win toward george clooney and the rest of the crew inhe entertainment industry. they get treated really well. but our veterans, they just have to wait. >> to your point, we spoke with dr. ben carson, brilliant man. has a book out now, and we said, if this is -- if the v.a. is an indication of how ou government health care is treating the best us, what does it mean for the rest us? take a listen what he said. >> a wonderful harbinger of what's going to happen if we just put layers and layers of bureaucrats between the patients and the health care provider. this is symptomatic of all the things going on with this gigantic government that you can't control. >> laura, on top of that, it seems very similar.
kathleen sebelius seemed beefedled throughout the process. then general shinseki, decorated general, seems totally out of his element in something he should know all about. >> how about last week, i was like well, i'm really angry about this. wait a second. wouldn't it be nice if someone in the administration was truly outraged and angry at this failure to perform for our veterans or targeting conservative groups, if they are angry about that as they are randomly at any member of the tea party, we'd be in good shape. when they want to focus on an issue, or focus on a group of people, they'll do that. like they did that last night in potomac, obama had another fund-raiser. laser beam focus on preserving their own purchase of power. i got to tell you, i think this
v.a. story is growing. i think it's going to get bigger and i think we're going to learn a lot more over the next few weeks and months about just what happened, what they knew and when they knew it going back many years. >> good. >> how about this? this is burning up the internet now. last night sarah palin went on line and she posted on facebook, remember a couple of days ago, karl rove was on, it was revealed that carl said it at a speech he was giving that he had concerns about hillary clinton's health given the fact that she was out of commission for about a month. then everybody blew up at karl. anyway, sarah palin wrote this on her facebook. hey, hillary's brain is off limits. leave her health records alone. democrats are right, scouring records of a female candidate is just politics and for the media to engage in it would be unfair. unethical. absolutely unprecedented. you can't probe a woman like that because, well, it's a war on women. hey, wait a minute. they did all that to sarah palin
already. >> of course they did. katie couric interview to questioning her wardrobe, her eyeglasses, her hair style. i mean, look, they dragged her through the mud and we all know what happened there. and right now, now we're supposed to believe that hillary clinton, whose husband started the whole war in politics that she's somehow the damsel in distress here? are they kidding me? so now the only people who can have a political war room are the clintons. okay. i don't think that's going to a. i think what karl rove did in that little comment is he gave a real signal to the clintons that we're going to play, gloves are going to be off and we'll play as hard as you play on your side. don't think that we're going to give special treatment to mrs. clinton because she's a woman. we're not. we're going to treat her like any other political competitor. >> who had, according to her husband, a terrible concussion, that she had the after effects for six months. that sounds pretty serious.
>> it's a common question for any candidate running for office. given the shear imcompetence and the inability to perform in office that we've seen over the last five years, we tonight want that to happen again. i would think not. >> right. we know you got to go prepare for your radio show heard all across this great land of ours. thank you very much. we'll see you back here. >> see you next week. >> bye. terrifying moments caught on camera. people are sent running for their lives when a gunman opens fire inside a bowling alley. >> a mayor in hot water for saying this about bullying. >> i'm against bullying, but i'm getting damned tired of it being used as a mantra for everything in the ills of the world when all most people have to do is grow a pair. >> wow. he is here next to defend those comments and more. ♪ ♪

of glad that my colorful language brought it to the attention of the media. >> right. so mr. mayor, why don't you set the scene for us, which led up to those comments. >> well, in my mind, there is so many different ideas that tell us that it's a bullying situation when, in fact, it's not a bullying situation and it takes away from what is bullying situation and what needs to be addressed in our schools as well as families. they kind of came to us with an idea of safe zone out in the cityies which is a situation that i don't believe should be a liability that the city should take on, as well as taking away the responsibilities of our school children that the school districts are supposed to be taking. >> right. so they're going to spend more money, set up bullying safe zones. you think it's gone too far. you're not pro-bullying. you see it as an issue.
throughout life, throughout society, every country there are bullying issues. but the reality, mayor, isn't it that in life, it's not fair and there is times you do have to learn to stand up for yourself and you can't run to the courts or a system to defend yourself? >> i believe that is exactly what we're talking about, that not only are we stand up for ourselves, but if you listen to some of the rest of the discussion going on, it was that others would stand up for you when there is somebody out there that is being picked on horribly at school that if you don't want to happen to yourself and see it going on, then it's up to us to bring a message to those bullying saying as a group, we're not going to take this. >> for someone to characterize you as that mayor doesn't care about the ten yearly getting beat up on the playground, that's just not true? >> it's just the opposite. i care immensely. i was about 11 years old when it happened to me and 7th grade, i believe it was.
made every excuse in the world not to go to school, was in fear of a gentleman that kept on pulling a knife on me and one day i had to confront my tormenter and therefore, i stood up for myself. the other thing, brian, is i didn't want to tell anybody what was going on and i'm afraid that's also what i'm hearing from the school kids. they don't want to tell anybody what's going on because they don't want to draw attention to the fact that they may or may not be bullied because the torment may continue from other people. >> i think your statement brought up the dialogue. i think we got to have it. mayor hamilton, thanks for the courage to come up and expand on what you said and i enjoyed hearing your explanation this morning. >> brian, thank you for bringing it to the public also and appreciate the show. i listen to you guys quite often. >> thank you. i appreciate it, 'cause that means you got to get up early.

but you got to work. tell us about the jobs you've had so far at college of the ozarks. >> i started out as a freshman in the dish pit and then i worked from there. i was able to move throughout thanksgiving week, which is my workweek. we have one workweek every she iser. i moved throughout the kitchen and learned a lot of skills. now i work at the high school on campus, the school of the ozarks laboratory school. i work with students, answer the phone. it's been a great experience pour me definitely. >> that's terrific. there are a lot of parents whose kids, it's hard to get them off the couch and they certainly would never do the dishes in this lifetime. you come from a family of nine. used to hard work. you got a landscaping business. when your friends would go to other colleges, here, yeah, i don't have to pay anything, but i've got to work, what's their reaction? >> they definitely think it's amazing. i know a lot of my friends when i tell them about it, they have
a hard time at first understanding. but then once they do, they really wish they could go there. it's an amazing opportunity. my family is used to hard work. my dad does have a business and a web site. so we grew up helping him. so we were able to learn how to do that in the real world at college of the ozarks. >> look at that, you gave your dad a free commercial nationwide and around the world. fantastic. jerry, after parents and kids watch this, a lot of people are going to be thinking, college of the ozarks, sounds great to us. how hard is it to get into, to be admitted to? i would imagine you get a lot of people from out of state and in state who want to go there. >> that's correct. we get about 4,000 applications this year and we admit about 400 freshman. these students are interviewed. they understand what the college is about and that we expect a lot because our operating philosophy is pretty simple. just be good or be gone.
>> sure. the key is at the end of the day, you want the kids who graduate from there to get jobs and i understand 90% of t get jobs pretty quickly. if employers are look at it, that's really who you want to hire, isn't it, somebody who works hard? >> well, that's the way i learned it and i think it's still true in the country. i'm not sure that all colleges are encouraging that. but we certainly are. >> we sure are. laura, before you go, what do you want to be when you grow up? >> i would love to be an english teacher. my major is english and i love reading and writing, i'd love to write some day. i love to share my love of english with students. >> jerry davis, the college president out there, we thank you both for joining us from springfield, missouri. from job. >> thank you. >> thank you. that's great. 28 minutes after the top of the hour. that's great story. it is the super tuesday of primaries and the outcome could

>> i would say that dog is unfamiliar with the invisible fence. >> at the bowling alley? >> look at this. this is your shot of the morning. this is a border collie freaking out, poor thing, after setting off the lane alarm at a bowling alley. >> the dog got confused by the sound and tries to set it off several times with its paw. >> he's not getting shocked, is he? >> no. >> not at the regular bowling alley, no. >> he kind of likes it. >> by the way, it's time for me to read. sorry about the silence. each time it goes off, here is the big question, why was the dog in the bowling alley? >> let's start there. >> we're more of a riddle show
today. we do everything backwards. here is the video and here is the question. >> if you have the answer, let us know. >> we just took you out to the college of the ozarks where kids go to school for free for a college education. it actually costs you $20 per head to graduate from manatee high school in bradenton, florida. 20 bucks for each student. that's the senior fee. here is the extraordinary thing. if you want the premium seating, it will cost parents $200 for seats close to the stage. >> you know why, steve? >> this is for deep pocketed parents who want to show off and be close. >> it costs $12,000 to throw a graduation. have a fund-raiser! >> have a car wash. >> it's discriminatory. i saw some e-mail. we wanted to know from you what you thought about the fact that they're charging 200 bucks to get the good seats at a high school graduation. >> you could see steve swaying the witness. >> one e-mail says i say make the graduates pay. not the parents.
get them started off in life on the right foot. nothing is free. >> good. thank you, mike in maine. >> karen from new hampshire says graduation seats should be assigned by students' grades. not by how much a parent can afford to pay. right. it's all about graduation is to celebrate the 12 or 13 years of hard work and if you did great, have the valedictorian parents sit up front. >> one says, are you surprised? they charge for lunch, sports and registration. schools are worse than airlines. no, nothing is worse than airlines. believe me. all i can say is the school needs the money. a lot of rich parents are the rich parents that always put in all the money for the 50/50, have the great donations for the lottery -- >> how does that make the parents who can't afford that, how does that -- yeah, sit in the back of the place. >> it shouldn't be prohibitive on the day of your graduation. >> you have turned on me, elisabeth? >> look, i'm still trying to --
never mind. i'm not on a side. >> you turned on me. >> i have not. >> she's commove to the right side. >> that's like when you were cheat last friday. i can't even look at you. >> that's why i took off monday, you were so angry. >> i am looking at heather. >> here i am. and we actually did have a serious story to begin with. this is a breaking news for you. fox news alert at this hour. frantic search underway for a missing marine who apparently fell from an aircraft in north carolina. the military personnel say the marine fell from an osprey during a training mission around 7:00 p.m. last night around white lake, about 100 miles south of raleigh. the osprey was based at marine corps air station new river. it's not clear how he fell. that marine's name has not been released. we will keep you updated as this story develops. calls are growing for president obama to help free the american marine who is being
held in a mexican prison. sergeant andrew tamarisi has been locked up for more than a month over an apparent mistake. the marine says he accidentally drove into mexico with three u.s. registered firearms. his mother just got into the prison to see her son face-to-face. fox news was there when she came out. >> he's not a criminal. he made a mistake and made a wrong turn. and said right at the border, i've got guns, so whitehouse.gov petition, 'cause that's the only hope i have that the white house will acknowledge that andrew is in prison. this commander in chief is president obama. so i haven't heard from president obama. >> the petition needs 100,000 signatures for the white house to respond. right now it has about 24,000. and this. it is a shocking new study to say the least. more than 10,000 toddlers are being prescribed drugs for adhd, despite pediatric guidelines
stating children who are younger than four years old should not be taking the medication. the scariest part, doctors don't know what the lasting for examples could be. so -- effects could be. is your child's pediatrician to blame? one doctor joined us earlier and he says it's the parents. >> it's giving in to the pressure of the moment and it shouldn't happen. the pediatrician should take the time to say listen, it's hard being a parent of a toddler. this is what you can do and walk them through the steps. but instead, they do the quick thing, which is write a prescription. >> the two-year-old, of course they're going to be concentrating on other things. but the doctor added that if your child is on these drugs, you can stop them immediately without any danger. and finally, it is the super tuesday of primaries and the outcome could change the balance of power in washington. six states holding elections. some polls are already open. the spotlight on a couple of key

times. she would not do it. analysts said she probably should have said, well, you know what? i wasn't there, but if i was, i may have voted for it. but this is how i'd fix it. she had no good answer. apparently it's harming her. >> we also know that mitch mcconnell will win that race. but he needs somehow to win over the bevin voters for the general. for the mid terms. can't alienate too much, cockfighting or not. >> that's right. we're going to keep you posted on all of that coming up. someone who has run and really captureed the hearts of america with her look at the weather, maria molina, how are you? >> good morning. good to see you. we have some extreme weather to tell you about today that will be possible across parts of the plains and also in the midwest. we do have a chance for severe storms out here, large hail, damaging winds and tornadoes will be possible not only today, but also as we head into tomorrow. that does include parts of the midwest, parts of the ohio river valley and even as far east as western pennsylvania for

gun for protection. >> you solved that problem right away. let me ask you this, you're really passionate. i watched you speak about starbucks when they said this is our antigun policy. why are you and where does this come from, this passion for the second amendment? >> yeah. i in general have a passionate personality. but the very first time i shot i was about 25, 26 years old. and i started taking a love for it, getting involved to it and it spiraled into a passion for the second amendment and you get what you see here today. >> what do you say now -- a lot of your critics call you poser garbage. they want to progress. i've heard you say once that you can progress this country to death. what do you say to them? >> well, i'm having a slight hard time hearing you. i couldn't get that last part of the question. >> your critics call you a poser. this isn't what you're about. you can't possibly be for gun rights, second amendment.
>> i like to call it elusive bigotry and arrogance. when you think you own the topic and you think you own i guess in their mind cool, when somebody comes out who isn't exactly in line with the way they're thinking, it's kind of like no, he obviously has to be fake. there is no way that somebody like him who is young and black is into firearms and into responsibly owning firearms because in a lot of ways, all you see publicly is a negative portrayal of younger blacks utilizing firearms. for them, it's almost mind blowing. >> will they succeed in silencing you? >> say that one more time. >> will they succeed in silencing you, your critics? >> not at all. >> you got your mom some good protection there as well. >> absolutely. >> we will continue to check you out there and all that you have to say with regard to our constitutional rights. thanks for being with us. >> thank you very much. still ahead, dogs dying from
