you as we look at new york city in manhattan, a rainy friday. it is friday. "fox and friends" first on friday morning. heather: thank you for starting your day with us. steve scalise remains in critical condition in the hospital but doctors say he is improving after being shot in the hip and the hopeful update as lawmakers come together in unity at the congressional baseball game. rob: what we are now learning about the shooter. >> reporter: we are told that steve scalise is recovering from another surgery for his internal injuries and the broken bone in his leg and he will need several more operations.
the congressman from louisiana was on the forefront of everybody's mind at the annual congressional baseball game for charity. players on both teams war lsu gear in his honor and did a touching moment ahead of the game democrats and republicans met around second base where scalise was shot where he was playing, donald trump was not at the game, praising lawmakers and fans and sending a message to the world. >> by playing tonight you are showing the world we will not be intimidated by threats or assaults on democracy. another special night, i leave you with three great american words that for generations have torn down barriers, build bridges of unity and defied those who sought to pull us apart. ladies and gentlemen, let's play
ball. rob: one of the highlights was the opening pitch, david bailey who was injured in wednesday's shooting surprised the crowd and took the field in crutches to throw out the opening pitch. first daughter, ivanka, were part of a record-breaking crowd, 25,000 people came to the charity event which is more than the average crowd size that immediately game. and an end the democrats won 11-numtwo. it really was a win for everyone. the two sides raised $1 million for charity which is more than double the amount they raised last year alone. the fbi investigation into james hodgkinson, the man behind wednesday's shooting is progressing. the fbi learned the 66-year-old legally owned the pistol and rifle used in the attack and the man's wife told reporters he had told her he was going to dc to lobby to change the tax laws.
heather: nancy pelosi going off on republicans in the wake of the baseball shooting, california democrat responding to the possibility that the gop could blame the attack on hateful rhetoric from the left. >> how dare they say such a thing? how there is a? this sick individual does something despicable and it was horrible what he did, hateful but for them to all of a sudden be sanctimonious, that they have never seen such a thing before, i don't even want to go into the president of the united states but in terms of some of the language he has used. heather: the gunman made several anti-donald trump post on social media and was a staunch bernie sanders supported. charles krauthammer sounding off saying what we need to know is not more finger pointing but a de-escalation of political
hostility. >> this is a reflex i have seen among democrats. it is true to some extent among republicans. the vitriol in our politics is not unilateral. if you are a democrat you are to have at least the decency to wait a while before leveling accusations. if that language were so extreme we would have the beginning of a de-escalation. rob: donald trump slamming the russia investigation taking to twitter to wonder why he is being pro while hillary clinton is not. one of the tweets red crooked h destroyed phones with hammer, bleached emails it had husband meet with attorney general days before she was cleared and they talk about obstruction, this comes a day after a washington post report claiming robert mueller is investigating the president for obstruction of justice for firing james comey. as we wait for confirmation on
that investigation the senate judiciary committee opening their own probe into comey after termination, if the administration had improper interference with the fbi and obama's attorney general loretta lynch and whether she influenced the clinton email investigation. if comey faces trouble from the trump administration he has some options. russian president vladimir putin is now offering comey asylum. heather: russia taking credit for killing the leader of isis. the defense ministry claims baghdady died in the a strike in the syrian city of rocca late last month. according to russia they killed 30 isis commanders and 30 fighters who were gathered for a meeting. rob: father an american students freed by north korea slamming

condemning the rogue nation for returning his son in this state. >> i would like to highlight the bittersweet feeling my family has, relief that auto is home in the arms of those who love him and anger that he was so brutally treated for so long. >> reporter: his father calling out former president obama for not doing enough to secure his release. >> so i think the past administration could have done more? i think the results speak for themselves. we are also thankful to rex tillerson and donald trump, they wanted him home and i believe they made this happen so we are thankful for that. >> reporter: doctors don't know the cause or circumstances of his condition or if he will recover. such a sad story. you could see he was already having trouble way back 17 months ago when he was forced to
make that admission. rob: in a few hours the president will unveil a new policy rolling back obama era policies with cuba. commercial flight and cruises to the island will still be allowed the travel restrictions could be tightened. a senior administration official says the president is trying to block business deals with havana's military in hopes of cutting off money to the oppressive cuban regime and spending that money to the people. >> the death toll rising after we get our first look inside the london tower gutted by an inferno, shocking photos show windows blown out and rubble scattered where 17 people were killed. these harrowing images highlighting the challenges firefighters face trying to save those trapped inside and we are learning one hero mom took action herself letting her 11th floor apartment by overflowing

york city, it has been 16 years since 9/11. do you feel we are too complacent, this idea could even gain any traction at all, to open us up and show everybody we are keeping them safe and an advantage a lot of officers say to people trying to hurt us. >> city council had a relationship with the nypd and this is something being going on for years. we have to take into consideration two types of threats, the general threat, officers with heavy weapons in places like times square and that -- when we have specific threats we don't want to tip our hand as law enforcement to the public such as the propensity for dirty bomb or something being ignited. let the public know that the location, the key is to catch that person. when you go back to policing, 9/11, we have thwarted numerous
terrorist attacks in new york city and we have to give credit absolute members of the nypd and law enforcement on a national level. rob: john kelly, very good man, said if he knew the kind of threats we face in this country and the chatter he hears you would be afraid to leave your house. >> you wouldn't sleep at night. as an army that i'm a strong proponent in securing a republic and we have to go back to the social contract. we as citizens afford government the ability to take care of us. in return we submit some levels of rights. we allow the government to provide this blanket of security and that is what the nypd is providing, secretary kelly for providing security for us as a nation. rob: bill diblasio appears to be not for this plan, doesn't think it is a good idea, two councilmembers are both democrats and that have prior history in law enforcement,
don't understand, officers would argue, threats we face. >> we refer to the city councilman, vanessa gibson, a background in law enforcement or policing, very difficult for these individuals to introduce a pattern. >> walk the streets and read the subway and i think it is safe, thanks for coming in this morning. heather: the time is 20 minutes after the top of the hour, the new york times to find political business following the alexandria shooting even if it meant reviving an old lie and laying the blame on sarah palin but she just fired back. carly shimkus as that up next. ♪ ♪ on american --

post, she said i hope the media has collectively matured since the last attack on a representative when media coverage fed blatant lies about who was to blame. there has been no improvement, the new york times is gotten worse. the times now says yes, they screwed up, they issued a correction, and editorial thursday about the shooting of representative steve scalise incorrectly stated a link exist between political rhetoric and the 2011 shooting of representative gabby giffords. in fact no such link was established. can sarah palin sue for libel? in a twitter post she said she is talking to lawyers. don't mess with sarah palin. rob: something we would like to see in the wake of what happened this week the congressional shooting, less political rhetoric. someone known for that is ted nugent, the rocker best known for sometimes violent verbal

does not bode well for the north koreans, we have to figure out at this point how he got in this state. it is a shame and won't do any favors for the north korean regime. heather: you were referencing in 2009 with former president clinton, bill clinton. >> reporter: former clinton at the time, president obama was in the white house and president clinton was able to secure the release of two american prisoners and another american prisoner released in 2014 and we have had some success in the past but the fact that he came back in such bad shape, a lot of questions what the north korean regime is doing, why didn't they release him? why did they keep him for so long? >> he was having problems in the beginning when he was forced to make that confession. >> reporter: the north korean regime does not like human rights abuses exposed so what
the trump administration will do is make sure, this is not a humanitarian gesture, the north korean regime is probably the most repressive regime in the world and has a terrible record on this. the big problem with north korea, human rights problems, the nuclear missile program and this is not going to help us move in the direction of securing diplomatic channels. >> we dealt with this nation and this dictator as if they are rational people. kim jung un is a psychopath. why do we bargain with them and do you think the new administration will deal with them the way a lot of americans think they should? >> reporter: interesting the trump administration secured his
release. what that tells us is the north koreans don't do anything out of the kindness of their hearts, they do it because it is in their own interests so i think the north koreans are taking the trump administration more seriously, negotiations, diplomacy has not worked with the regime, they will not get rid of their nuclear program so we are left with coercion and force as options if we cannot get the chinese to really turn the screws on the north koreans. without china's trade north korea has nothing. heather: the problem is their nuclear capabilities. you have to consider that before you do anything. >> exactly right. no american tourists should be going to north korea and your heart goes out to the family that he was lured by the chinese company, no american should go there because what the trump administration needs to do is ensure that the north koreans do not get the capability to target americans with nuclear
capability, that has got to be the first and foremost priority. >> also threatening to nuke new york city and south korea. what a joke. thank you for joining us. time to check in with our friends at "fox and friends". heather: you are in a cozy corner and having some breakfast. >> we are having breakfast with friends here in miami springs, florida, the president about to speak later today about changes to the cuban policy, we want you to come down here, have some of this cuban toaster.

rob: this will boost protections for whistleblowers. rob: a fourth of july celebration canceled in new orleans because one person doesn't like donald trump. saying in an interview when i think about wearing my flag dress and waving flags i don't know what it means this year. i like that dress but here to weigh in is lawrence jones. this is ridiculous. >> this is childish. the suggestion that america is about a one man is insulting to many americans. this is a country of ideas and the president is the most proactive president i have seen in a while that is so proud to be american and having policy that goes with america first. >> america is an idea, collection of all different
kinds of people. >> exactly. america is about ideas, freedom, justice, liberty and to take this route about making get about donald trump is the wrong route to go. this is exactly what americans are sick of, to be able to have fun and talk about ideas of america but now we have people making even the idea about america a partisan. >> i was reading more about it and she said she that didn't like the idea of lampooning the president, she had seen that in mardi gras parade and didn't want that to happen as well but overall because her heart wasn't in it. you think it will change after what happened at the congressional baseball practice? >> i don't think so and i said this yesterday. this whole message of unity after this tragedy is about photo ops. i don't think it is genuine.
i think we will see the partisan divide even get stronger after this incident blows over. i can predict leading into this weekend, starting early monday we will see politicians going back and forth over petty things and not putting america first. this is a celebration and this highlights the divide in america when it comes to the outsiders and not the american people. i think the american people want to put america first, they want to celebrate america but you always have actors and people in hollywood and parade organizers making politics before america. maria: heather: we have not heard from a lot of those people who were so willing to give their opinions and do those type of things before this happened. >> exactly, you didn't. it is childish as i said. a lot of people are sick of this back and forth rhetoric. we should all be able to unify behind america. if you want to talk about donald
trump. if anybody loves america it is donald trump. this is not just about america but america's entrepreneurship, businesses, creativity. all of that which our president demonstrates. it shows you. it shows you how these people, the people donald trump got the vote, they want america first, they want america is great so i think it shows how tone deaf they are. >> i hope the bipartisanship last a little longer than monday but we have the healthcare issue coming up. >> i pray that i am wrong about this but i -- how they work. >> appreciate having you here all the time. the time is 6 minutes until the top of the hour and chalk it off
