they are undisciplined. ♪ >> it is friday october 13th and this is "fox and friends" first at 4:00 am, thank you for getting up super early and joining us today. let's get our top story, congress couldn't get it done so donald trump is taking repealing and replacing into his own hands signing an executive order targeting obamacare. what is different this time around? >> reporter: the white house announced it plans to start making payments to health insurers in an order known as cost-sharing reduction. those payments which donald trump threatened are a key part of obamacare and help reduce health insurance co-pays and deductibles for a lot of middle-class americans. the white house as it decided
end those payments because congress never designated specific funding to pay for it. explaining in a statement there is no appropriation for cost-sharing reduction payments to insurance companies under obamacare. in light of this analysis the government cannot lawfully make cost-sharing reduction payments. this could end immediately and that will rattle the already unsteady insurance marketplaces which will add pressure on congress to act. democrats are already blasting the move and some promising to sue the administration over the decision. chuck schumer said in a statement having failed to reveal the law in congress the president is sabotaging the system using a wrecking ball to single-handedly rip apart our healthcare system. in addition to ending the cost-sharing payment yesterday afternoon donald trump signed an executive order to expand access to healthcare by allowing individuals and small employers
to band together and buy health insurance across state lines. >> this will allow thousands of small business employers to have the same purchasing power as large employers to get more affordable and generous insurance options for their workers. >> the white house is describing the latest moves as the first steps to repealing and replacing obamacare which it is still pushing congress to get done. >> in the meantime donald trump is taking a scalpel to obamacare with new options for americans. karl rove breaks down how the president plans to reshape the nation's healthcare system. >> he told the department of labor to find a way to expand the ability for people to use association health plans. if you are a fast food operator or landscape operator or cattle operator you could join other people in your industry across state lines and provide insurance to all the employees
and get the same discounts. there are limits to how much you can do underregulation but it is a good step and the short-term limited duration insurance policies of people who by for a short time between jobs can't get insurance in the exchange and health reimbursement arrangements allow these accounts so players set up to pay for co-pays and premiums, these are all things that will help people get insurance. >> karl rove brings out his whiteboard. donald trump is expected to rip up the iran nuclear deal. this would put congress in charge of taking action. lawmakers would have to decide on re-imposing sanctions. fox news military analyst lieutenant colonel oliver north says this is the right move. spot >> the iranian nuclear deal is
worse than obamacare. they can both kill you, just a matter of how many and how fast. heather: donald trump will layout the plan in a speech live on fox. to another fox news alert, raging california wildfires the deadliest in the state's modern history, 31 dead, hundreds still missing, 21 fires are still burning, 200,000 acres. that is as big as new york city. >> all around my house, helicopters here and everything and there goes the house, it was gone. i cried for a couple hours. i don't think i can cry anymore. heather: fire investigators looking at whether downed power lines could have ignited this fire. two north carolina prison employees are dead after a
violent and fiery escape. >> we have massive casualty after that, multiple patients, some are critical. >> an officer struck multiple times with a hammer. >> justin smith and veronica darden were killed after inmates sent a sewing plant on fire in an attempt to break free. to employees and four prisoners were hurt, no one escaped. the new information, disturbing details in the harvey weinstein scandal. tm the reporting harvey's contract allowed him to keep his job even if sexual harassment came into play as long as he placed the settlement costs. police on both sides of the atlantic in london in new york city investigating. the news on the heels of another harassment bombshell. amazon's top boss suspended after a tv producer accused him

doubt that you are operating off of contacts, leaks, but the advice i would say, develop better sources. i am not quitting today. i don't believe i am being fired today. >> reporter: kelly's first meeting with the press corps on the record so kind of unusual a general long known in military circles saying his role as chief of staff is the hardest job he ever had. donald trump doubling down on his fight with the media tweeting fake news is going all out in order to demean and denigrate, got facts to back him up. according to a new study 62% of donald trump's media coverage is negative, 62%. heather: over a year now.
molly hemingway at the top of the show said she is frustrated with this. when you heard kelly say he is not quitting, the entire room erupted in laughter. that is frustrating. it is not funny. listen. >> it was frustrating for me when he said he wasn't quitting today and the room erupted in laughter as if it were really funny, they write every few days how he is quitting and they have the resources and he denies that they act like it is funny. it is not funny to have so many stories based on unreliable anonymous sources and the public can't check these sources. earlier in the show someone from a different outlook saying trust resources they are good. no way to trust when they contradict information on the record and no way to check and hold them accountable and it is a huge threat in addition to external threats to freedom of press and internal threats and
losing their standard. >> the press corps was laughing, he had a straight face. his comments were short and sweet but he didn't find this funny. >> it is not a laughing matter and these anonymous sources need to be questioned. we want to know what you think. can you trust the media or is there an anti-donald trump bias impacting reporting? wayne with jackie on facebook live and we will send responses live later in the show. coming up a high school teenager kidnapped and murdered. her accused killer an illegal protected by the dream act. after years being held by the taliban american and her family freed with the help of american forces. a former soldier hunted and killed the world's worst

teenage girl. daniel wrangell scheer was protected from deportation under the obama era daca program. he is accused of killing 18-year-old diana martinez who was shot to death in the woods in south carolina. the department of justice issuing its last chance for centuries is to refuse to cooperate with ice. of the cities including new york, chicago, philadelphia, new orleans and cook county, illinois, fail to change their immigration enforcement policy they can be forced to pay back millions of dollars in federal grant money. the doj giving them until october 27th to comply. after 5 years in captivity an american and her family are free, the us playing a major role in helping the pakistani military carry out the rescue is this a result of the trump administration putting more pressure on pakistan to cooperate? here to weigh in a special operations intelligence analyst,
thanks for joining us. this family was taken back in 2012. the children were born in captivity. what do we know about who took? >> the how connie network likely pick them up when the family was on an adventure tour when they were backpacking through the mountainside, one of those dangerous countries, they were picked up and have been moved over the course of years between pakistan and afghanistan. heather: the time they have been held in captivity there have been youto videos, pleas from their captors to do certain things but fast-forward to 2017 and you have them free. why do you think now? >> probably what happened, the us military had information regarding the precise location and they needed to do something immediately and that is what we
saw even though we saw the pakistani military conduct the rescue operation on the vehicle hostages were being transported in. this was a us-led operation. what was likely happening was the hostages were following by us surveillance in afghanistan and saw them crossing the border and they needed to do something. the reason it was a us-led operation, the pakistanis are not competent enough to track terrorist targets or go after hostages like this. heather: have they been is willing to help us out and why is that changing? as a result of the trump administration putting pressure on pakistan? >> it used to be the case when hostage was located, if there was any chance of negotiation to get the release the previous administration would go for that. i was part of a number of
operations where we knew these guys were operated and were told to hold off on that. what we know is negotiations were taking place for years to get them released coming in the end it never happened so it is important an operation was conducted immediately to rescue them. heather: i know you just answered this, what donald trump is doing different than the previous administration. included in that is threatening to cut funding to pakistan among other things. it is this an indication of moving forward a positive sign things like this will happen with other countries helping us? >> absolutely. there is a new counterterrorism sheriff in town and we will see that more and more when it comes to these operations. it is rare for the us government to collaborate with a foreign country, conduct a hostage rescue on an american citizen. when you see the nuances and details of this operation that is a big deal that they trust
the pakistan is enough to conduct this operation and told them you need to do this or we are going in with you. with the pakistanis risking a ton of funding on the war on terror it only made sense to do this so to put a pakistani face on this is a win for everyone. heather: appreciate you joining us and good luck to that family released after five years. the time is 19 minutes after the top of the hour. a new round of on-field player protests during thursday night football and sheriff david clark has had enough. >> what is there to discuss? stand at attention, face the flag and give it to respect. heather: remember the state lawmaker punished after hoping for donald trump's assassination? do you think she learned her lesson? think again. wait until you see why she is back in the headlines this morning. ♪
heather: welcome back to "fox and friends" first, thank you for joining us. the state senator who said she hoped donald trump was assassinated, she is back sparking more controversy on social media. carly shimkus from fox news headline serious xm 115. >> missouri state senator under fire this morning because she
posted a picture on twitter that compared donald trump to adolf hitler. she says she posted that picture because she was upset by the president's recentlys suggesting puerto rico needs to take more responsible for hurricane maria recovery. this is not the first time she posted something like that. in august she was investigated by the secret service because she wrote that the president should be assassinated. there are new calls for her resignation is morning, you need to redesign, saying things you don't agree with killing 13 million people are equivalent. way to keep it classy. this is disgusting by any standards but it appears you don't have any. she said she's within her first amendment rights to post them thing like this. and doing it for attention because we are talking about
her. >> a negative attention but attention nonetheless. >> anthony for dane has a problem with hillary clinton and how that went. >> she came down on hillary clinton for her comments about the harvey weinstein scandal, did an interview with cnn. here's what she had to say. >> i was shocked and appalled. it was something that was intolerable in every way. >> anthony fordane is no fan by donald trump posted this to twitter, i have to say hillary's interview was shameful in its deflection and disingenuousness. hillary clinton is not stupid or unsophisticated about the world. the weinstein story has been out there for years. secretary clinton was one of the most intelligent, well prepared politicians ever.
i hoped for a better response. this story is personal for him because his girlfriend is one of weinstein's accusers. she keeps coming down hard on the whole thing but hillary clinton is an element of the story because she didn't -- heather: no dinner invites. the final story involves nfl football and roger goodell's wife. >> roger goodell's wife jane skinner used a fake twitter account to defend his honor. here are some of her tweets. reads like a press release from players union. you could do better with firebombs. she said roger good dell courageous was in the end, leadership is hard, commissioner doing -- give him credit.
that was difficult. heather: you have 120 characters. >> she admitted it was a silly thing for me to do and done out of frustration. she's being a good wife. heather: the how many other people do that but having been caught? >> pretty creative. heather: she confessed and that is okay. appreciate it. time for you is almost half past the top of the hour and remember when president obama made these promises about obamacare? >> if you like your plan and you like your doctor you don't have to do with income you keep your plan, you keep your doctor. heather: that was not so true. donald trump's executive order, how is it going to change health care for your family? separating fact from fiction next. >> i am not quitting today.
learning the motive of the deadliest mass shooting in american history. las vegas police will give an update this morning and this comes as mgm resorts which owns the mandalay bay claims stephen paddock opened fire on the crowd after shooting security guard, not 6 minutes as police claim. jason aldean dedicating his show to his victims. >> those who didn't get a chance. >> reporter: he ran off the stage during his concert in las vegas during the show during the shooter's rampage. finally the admission we have been waiting for from accused deserter bowe bergdahl, set to plead guilty to desertion and
misbehavior after being captured by the taliban in 2009 while on patrol in afghanistan. in 2014 the obama administration traded him for 5 taliban terrorists being held at gitmo. of convicted he could face a life sentence. freedom under fire. 60 american flags found burned to a crisp. this was at a veterans memorial park outside los angeles. the container was set on fire, it was meant to collect worn and torn american flags for the boy scouts to properly retire. >> appalling that somebody would do such a thing to our flag, our nation's symbol. it was devastating. heather: one person has been arrested and faces multiple charges. once again, nfl players disrespecting the national anthem during thursday night football, philadelphia eagles raising their fist before the
game against the carolina panthers blues not one player took any. eagles winning that game by carolina panthers 28-33, none of the carolina panthers did anything, they put their hands next to their hearts, tennessee titans player threatening to retire early if the nfl forces them to stand, he tweeted i will be done playing football. the post deleted shortly after. the national anthem controversy spiraling out of control, here's what sheriff david clark had to say about players disrespecting the flag. >> takes 2 minutes and 12 seconds to sing the national anthem, stand at attention, face the flag for two minutes and 12 sections means your undisciplined. dying the death of 1000 cuts, roger goodell lost control of this and he is afraid that if he imposes a policy they have to stand at attention and face the
flag they won't do it and it becomes now what? the league has the authority, these are not rights, has the authority to set rules and procedures for their employees, players are employees. we have the tail wagging the dog. now i hear owners are going to meet in chicago, new york, to discuss this. what is there to discuss? stand at attention, face the flag and give it some respect. heather: you would think it would be simple. democrats slamming the president's health care overhaul. in some cases before they knew what was in it listen. >> i don't know what he is putting out today but it is sabotage of the affordable care act. quite frankly a real disservice to the american people. heather: sound like a lot of fear but what is the truth?
here to separate fact from fiction, nicole safire. very early this morning. what is? what is the biggest thing people need to know in terms of what they think is true and what is not true? >> yesterday marks the most progress in changing the health care system since donald trump has taken office. he has single-handedly attempted to deregulate the insurance market while dismantling what was imposed by the affordable care act which is what he said he was going to do during the campaign. that causes confusion. senator schumer and nancy pelosi say he failed health care. he is the only one making moves. republican failed to band together and democrats worked in opposition. what he has done in his executive order, trying to expand associated plans which means people can come together
to have price competition and get lower premiums by working together and getting insurance together. heather: they can make purchases across state lines. >> purchasing across state lines would hopefully create market competition. talk about restaurant owners having to use the more farmers having them together, smaller differences coming together. they also want to expand hsa, pretax dollars for health care which is great for them and expanding short-term health insurance. you graduate college you are able to have short-term insurance that is less regulated and more affordable. heather: all of that combined means lower costs. in theory it should. this is temporary. >> this is a stopgap but the biggest thing came after the executive order was signed. heather: you mentioned problems democrats have with that and
this would happen on subsidies which we knew was another promise donald trump said he would do. this is sabotage and will be what causes obamacare to fail. >> whatever rhetoric, he is being active, taking action against the affordable care act cutting off cost-sharing reductions or the insurance bailout. quick unraveling of the affordable care act. people won't, the insurance companies are going to be pulling out, raising premiums and you will have fewer people insured because they can't afford it or their won't be any claims available to them. this will make congress come together. they have to put together a bipartisan plan. heather: a strategic move to hopefully bring this together to get something done. >> this is a temporary fix, not
a solution. heather: we will have you back. the time is 20 minutes until the top of the hour. we told you about wildfires scorching 200,000 acres so far. that is as big as new york city. we are live with the latest on a frantic effort to contain those flames. hillary clinton interviewing for a new job, teaching her kids, retailers make black friday earlier and earlier every year. apparently america has had enough. the plates to retake thanksgiving up next. ♪ i don't think anything can prepare you to hear those
words from a doctor: stage 2 breast cancer. i have three little kids, my baby's seven years old - i can't have cancer. we really wanted a cancer team, that would care about not only my cancer but you know, how is my husband doing through all of this? and what about your three kids? so we thought that we would travel to
cancer treatment centers of america and see what they had to offer. i think the hope for us came in the form of knowing that these doctors were experts, and that they would help us decide the best course of action in the hopes of beating it. so when amy came to us, the first thing we did was discuss her case with the surgical oncologist, the radiation oncologist, the genetic counselor and came up with a treatment plan. the plan for her was to begin with preoperative chemotherapy, thereafter proceeded with surgery. one of things that we loved about ctca was that they give you a series of options. and you do what's best for you. depending upon what decision she makes with her surgical oncologist, we then know what to offer as the plastic surgeon and reconstruction team. dr. fernandez was wonderful. he said it's up to me to do what's best. it's about giving her options where amy has all the information to make a decision best for her.
rather than one treatment fitting all, it is a personalized approach to cancer therapy. we have so many tools. this is what attracted amy to our center all the way from new york. cancer is what they deal with everyday. these were people who are experts in their field. and for us that was the best choice. we left the hospital on day one feeling like, this is going to be okay. we're going to beat this and this is the place that's gonna help us do it. that feeling is priceless. learn more at cancercenter.com cancer treatment centers of america. appointments available now. heather: welcome back. it is now the deadliest week for wildfires in california history. 31 people have died and hundreds still missing. live santa rosa authorities are

neighbors home. we heard from one woman whose home was in this community as she returned to see what is left. >> people going every direction. it was apocalyptic, insane. >> we don't know what the next move is yet. >> 20,000 people still under evacuation as firefighters are on the front lines and the weather could get worse this weekend. the fires could ramp up. >> the family jumped into their pool to survive the flames and the flames burned down there house? >> reporter: that is right, they are lucky to be alive. heather: good luck to all those folks. another earthquake shaking the shores of north korea near its main nuclear test site sparking fears of another bomb test. amy kellogg has a look at international headlines.
