performed. never heard it performed in the key of happy, mr. president. congrats. we are going to leave it like that. jillian: we are. "fox & friends" starts now. todd: bi, everybody. bye, everybody.♪ ♪ ♪ only in america ♪ red, white, and blue ♪ steve: hi, everybody. hey, it's presidents day. ainsley: that's penally. that's the artist that comes on our show a lot. that paint something beautiful. steve: is hhe is leaving jersey right now: we are going to have him, we hope, provided he wakes up in time. you know he is an artist
later on in the program to present and create some sort of presidential portrait. brian: we wanted picasso, he didn't pick up so we got penally. i would say this george washington his birthday is the 22 psd so this is close to his birthday. ainsley: a lot of people out of school and a lot of you are off of work the banks are closed. brian: even the atm's are closed. ainsley: no they are not. can you still get your money. steve: ainsley went down to texas. exclusive will make news in a couple minutes. brian: what happened in parkland at the school they are still debating whether they should open again. the sheriff said we should just wreck it and put in trailers it until we put them in new schools. ainsley: demolish it. brian: for the first time i think out of all of these shootings the new tonight all of this.
the life change. ainsley: ---the lights changed. ainsley: i like that. that feels good. brian: amount of signals missed from the killer. ainsley: kids are saying there is going to be a march on n. washington on march 24th. demanding action on the gun control debate using protests and political action. please stop allowing us to get gunned down in our hallways. steve: starting a new viral #never again. never again will a bun man terrorize a school building and leave a community grieving. the president over the united states over the weekend reached out of to somebody who was involved in some bipartisan background check changes. the press secretary sarah sanders issued this statement. the president spoke to senator cornyn in texas on friday about the bipartisan bill he and senator chris murphy introduced to improve federal compliance with criminal background check legislation. discussions are ongoing and revisions are being
considered, the president is supportive of efforts to improve the federal background check system. the president also on wednesday of this week is going to meet with young people. is he going to have a listening session with them to figure out, you know, what they would like to see happen going forward. brian: as is marco rubio. i think that's great. rather than sit there and say let goption bac go with the. a lot of them are lashing out at him. i can understand the emotion. guns were controversial support or not support since day one. it's also interesting to see if we are ever going to have a different inclusion on the background check. almost everybody i know says yeah, you got to have a background check, but should police reports be in the background check if someone comes to an 18-year-old house 0 something times? should that be there? ainsley: absolutely. brian: if you are 18 and for some reason get an ar-15. should you have a listing
there on how many issues you had in 18 at schools from the time you were in primary school? steve: what if somebody actually called the fbi and said hey, i know this kid who is about to turn 18 and he wanted to kill people and has a disturbing social media profile and he has got a gun. what should happen in a situation like that? and now we know the fbi, somebody called with that tip the fbi hotline and it never got sejt down to the miami office. i know senator jeff sessions had said he wants a review of department of justice protocol to figure out exactly what went wrong. ainsley: i don't think so most americans would be against that if your child is in school with someone who the police has been called, even the parents, even the people raising that child have called the police on this kid some times and this kid has an ar-15. i think that's fine to put that on the background check. i would wants to know if my daughter is in school with someone that police have gone to their times, dozens of times? how many calls to police about this kid? i think it's totally fine to
put that on their background check and that's the case and they have been expelled and they have erratic behavior and they have abused animals, i think it's completely fine to put that on the background check and prevent that person from getting a gun. brian: also interesting to see what else came out when talking about the school and what the school knew. one of these guys that dated his -- cruise's exgirlfriend and then they have since broken up. he had four separate fights with this guy. then he got direct messages on twitter saying you don't know what i'm capable of and i have a gun and i'm going to shoot you. he told school security and he was unable to say if school security did anything at all. steve: there was a story floating around last week in the sun sentinel down in florida in fort lauderdale. that suggested that maybe the back and forth between the shooter and exboy boyfriend could have done something with the fact that he was expelled. ultimately what it comes down to unstable people should not have access to
guns. going forward, the big question is, something needs to happen from both sides. to prevent bad people from doing bad things to good people. why this movement seems to have picked up steam. why the president is going to be meeting with people. and who knows, maybe there will be this chris murphy and john cornyn bill. maybe something will be done to the federal background checks because the way it's working right now, ain't working. ainsley: brian mentioning last week that these police officers in the schools need to have guns so that they can protect themselves. steve: they had guns. ainsley: they did. brian: one guard had a gun. not the security guard who was the coach number one. number two is, if you have a school that large, you have to have a system where they no what entrances to funnel in and out of. one thing that emerge from this most people would embrace. i don't want to set up a tsa for schools. i would like some standardized security for schools, allow and not allow so we could have the department of education and security at the same time.
steve: unfortunately live this school had it all. there was one point where everybody went through. they had an i.d. but the shooter figured out at closing time they're going to be opening the gates. and can i go in at that time. that's why he, you know, he diabolically wore his junior rotc shirt so he would balanced in. ainsley: at the end of the week, 13 russians were indicted last week for trying to meddle in our campaign in 2016 in the presidential campaign. some of the democrats were on the sunday shows this weekend and they were saying even president obama should have done more to prevent this. listen. >> look, obama was in a very difficult position. he did not want to make it appear that he was favoring hillary clinton. maybe he should have done more. >> i have said all along that i thought the obama administration should have done more. none of that is an excuse for this president to sit on his hands. it is inexplicable that the president of the united states continues to sit on
sanctions that congress passed, that congress wants enforced against russia over this interference. steve: what is seen in this particular indictment is their strategic goal was to sow discord. change the outcome of the elections. this was 210. this wa22014.this was long befoe president trump got into it. the whole thing has become very political. >> i think this is all politics and the, chris, it hasn't changed from the get-go. it is about protecting hillary. and obama. obama is the primary person being protected here because all of this spying and all of this collusion to destroy trump happened with his knowledge and probably encouragement. and the reason hillary isn't charged is because that would mean obama would have to be exposed as participating in this game, too. brian: this thing is not done. i mean, it's funded for the next two years to 2019 in
this budget. this is a pretty thorough, 36 pages. it's worth reading to go through to see the intricacies in which the russians perpetrated our election. i really feel the fearlessness in which they did it they didn't feel like there was going to be any retribution at all. if we did that, we knew there would be blow back. yet, they have gotten -- they feel they can do it and they are doing it again. that was two days before they are already working on the 2018 election. i don't think so social media flipped the election any direction. the 0% of the electorate is not going i wonder who i should vote for. look or twitter or facebook or youtube. steve: it start in 2014 that we know of and it continued. and the obama administration knew it was happening but did nothing. ainsley: we were down at the border on friday with the vice president. there was lots of media down there following him because he was talking about border security. we are going to talk about that coming up. we asked him the question about joy behar that was an
issue you really cared with and wrote us at the end of the week last week. joy behar said because he prays to god and because god speaks to him like he does many of you that joy behar said he had a mental illness because god speaks to him and he hears from god. we asked him what he thought about that. listen. ainsley: joy behar made a comment saying that that leads her to believe that you have mental problems because god speaks to you. is it hypocrisy that liberals, democrats, mainstream media, they preach tolerance but, yet, when someone wants to be a christian and says that god speaks to them, they have a problem with that? >> those of us in public life are pretty accustomed to criticism. but when i heard that abc had a program that likened my christianity to mental illness, i just couldn't be silent. my christian faith is probably the most important thing in my life. i do try and start every day
reading the bible. my wife and i try and have a prayer together before i leave the house every morning. but i do think i'm a very typical american. people of all different faith, traditions, cherished their faith in god. and to have abc have a forumming that spoke in such demeaning terms, i think it's evidence of how out of touch some in the mainstream media are with the faith and values of the american people. ainsley: he went on to say when you are in public life, which y'all know this. y'all have been working on this show for 20 years. people say things, they criticize constantly. you get used to that. when someone is criticizing god and your faith, that is so important to the people that he represents, to most americans, to most people around the world, no matter what your faith is, no matter what your belief is, then he has to stand up and he has to say something. brian: i think it's unbelievable oprah the next day said i thought i would
run for president but if god wanted me to i would have thought god would say something. ainsley: joy behar later said she is kidding. brian: i give money to the church most ridiculous. i wrote a check to the church so i can put down mike pence. steve: she is a comedian. not funny. complete interview in 15 minutes. ainsley: that's right. steve: coming on monday there is ainsley with the vice president down along the wall. steve: millions of taxpayer dollars spent, but no collusion found. where does the probe go from here. law professor jonathan turley joins us life next to discuss. brian: move over, roseanne, this could be the worst national anthem performance of all time ♪ flag was still there ♪ oh, say does that star spangled ♪ banner yet wave

our next guest points out despite the no collusion found the investigation will continue. which way? here to weigh in jonathan turley. professor, good morning to you. >> thanks, steve. steve: what did we learn on friday? >> well, the most interesting aspect came down to an adjective describing trump officials as unwitting contacts. both the indictment and deputy attorney general rosenstein said that there was no evidence of knowing interaction between trump officials and this rather large campaign operation or election operation by the russians. that's pretty significant. it's been a year. there has been multiple plea agreements, multiple indictments there really has been no nexus drawn to the campaign. steve: so, you know, a lot of people said this convinced indicates the president because there was no collusion. do you feel that way? >> well, i think that it does support the president, certainly. it doesn't mean that they are not going to continue to
investigate collusion, obstruction, other issues. but, what it does suggest is that at this point there is no strong connection that has been found. that can only be viewed as supportive of the president's case. now, can you put a lot on that? no, the investigation is going to continue. but i think that people are engaging in willful blindness to ignore that this is a fairly significant admission. steve: well, i think politics is involved. it's the town you're in right now. okay, so, put collusion aside and, of course, that's why they actually started the whole investigation. then comes the question of the obstruction of justice. have you seen anything to indicate that there is some there there? >> well, he is clearly investigating obstruction. i think that -- i don't see a real case for obstruction, quite frankly. i never have. i think the greatest vulnerability may be in two other areas. one is financial fraud and
crimes. mueller really ramped up on a team of people whose specialty is financial fraud. with billions of dollars of investments, you can really have a motivated investigator who finds stuff. paul manafort is a good example of how that can work. all of his charges are unrelated to the campaign. the other big area is false statements. you see that with michael flynn. that's one of the reasons they don't want the president to sit down with the special counsel. any inaccurate statements can lead to a criminal charge. steve: right. of course, there are some stories out there, the "l.a. times" has got that rick gates is going to flip on manafort, although our catherine herridge says as of now no deal and gates is not cooperating according to this. ultimately though, as we go forward, and i know everybody would like to see this in our rear view mirror, but your gut tells you what about what's going to happen? >> well, i think that
mueller's mandate at least could be extebsded to cover fergie. considering what you just played in terms of national security risks. that one i could support. but, i think what's going to happen is he has got a lot of lines already in the water to prosecute. when gates was indicted i wrote a column saying it seemed to me that that indictment was written to force a plea agreement. i still think that there is a chance of that. but the big question is what has happened in terms of his investigation, financial dealings and obstruction and that will be unfolded in the weeks ahead. steve: all right. stay tuned. jonathan turley, thank you very much. 6:20 here in new york city. ainsley goes one-on-one with the vice president at our southern border. her exclusive interview is coming up next. >> illegal crossings are down nearly 50%. but even against that back drop, the american people deserve to know that we still apprehend 1100 people attempting to come into this
country every single day. yeah, liberty mutual 24-hour roadside assistance helped him to fix his flat so he could get home safely. my dad says our insurance doesn't have that. don't worry - i know what a lug wrench is, dad. is this a lug wrench? maybe? you can leave worry behind when liberty stands with you™. liberty stands with you™. liberty mutual insurance. previously treated withd platinum-based chemotherapy, including those with an abnormal alk or egfr gene who've tried an fda-approved targeted therapy, who wouldn't want a chance for another...?

jillian: good morning, welcome back. headlines for you. funerals continuing for the 17 victims of last week's school shooting in florida. now there are calls for 15-year-old jr. rotc cadet peter wang to receive a military burial. he died while holding doors open for others to escape. a petition posted on the white house website saying quote his selfless and heroic actions have led to the survivor dozens in the area. he died a hero and deserves to be treated as such and deserves a full honors military burial. scott israel visiting anthony bowrges in the
hospital. rob schmitt is live in parkland florida this morning. we will check in with him a little bit later in this hour. stay tuned for that he has new information on the shooter's past. a brand new report reveals intelligence and strategic failures may have led to that deadly ambush attack on four american soldiers in niger. the "new york times" reporting that the men were left in terrorist territory longer than planned with no backup. they were prepared for a routine patrol but ended up being sent to search a terrorist camp. the pentagon's official report on what happened is still under review. that's a look at your headlines, guys. second it back to you. ainsley: thank you, jillian. steve: with the u.s. senate rejecting another immigration bill. daca and border
security are back on the minds of both americans and the trump administration. brian: that's why michael pence took a tour of the rio valley sector with secretary nelson and texas senator ted cruz.
ainsley: afterwards he set down with me for an exclusive interview. take a look. mr. vice president thank you so much for being here. >> thank you, ainsley. ainsley: why was this important for you to come down here to the border? >> as you know, primp has made a priority of border security. building all way. beginning a process of reforming our immigration system that being here on the border, seeing the work that our border patrol does every day, it just underscores the need for the congress to come together and provide the funding for a border wall system that will enhance the security of our country and prevent the flow, not only of illegal immigrants but also individuals who represent a danger to our communities, and the flow of illicit drugs. it's time for congress to act. and i feel more convinced about that having been here today, having received the briefings that we have received. ainsley: what was your reaction when the senate did not pass the immigration bill? >> i think it was a great
disappointment to millions of americans who seat four pillars of president trump's proposal, but, also, it's a deal that permanently solves the issue of daca. you have 1.8 million people that were brought into this country as minors, are here through no fault of their own, president trump with the compassion of the american people said we are willing that we should solve that. ainsley: what happens now to these daca recipients? >> well, they remain in limbo. the president took a stand for the constitution and the rule of law. he set a timetable to march the 5th to say now congress has to come together and work in such a way to not only solve the daca problem but also to keep the promises that he made to the american people. ainsley: you are here with secretary nelson and ted cruz. what did you learn today that will help you that you will take back to washington? >> i have learned that we made great progress in securing our border since
president trump took office. illegal crossings are down nearly 50%. but even against that back drop, the american people deserve to know that we still apprehend 1100 people attempting to come into this country every single day. and in this district alone, 85 individuals have been incarcerated for their association with months, so wms-13.we have real challenges. ainsley: we are on the mexico side of the wall. if anyone swims through the rio grand and come here this is what they face. we don't have a wall all the way across the border. you would like that to ham. correct? >> president trump made a commitment to the american people that we're going to build a wall. that means we're going to have a physical barrier on our southern border. ainsley: when we were doing the boat tour earlier through the rio
grand, we saw the mexican police on the other side. many of them were standing um on the cliff. we were also told when we drove by one area that that was rock alley because the
mexicans will put rocks and slingshots and fire them over on to our border. our border agents and sometimes hit them. what made you want to go and do that today? >> well, i think for me, it's always about seeing and understanding. to be out on the rio grande and to see a river that at some points is less than 150 yards wide a river where literally every day people are entering the water and swimming across. sometimes with rapid current and risking themselves and risking minor children to come into this country illegally. these border patrol agents take great risk every day. unfortunately, in 2017 we saw 73% increase in assaults against border patrol personnel. ainsley: i know if we build the wall there are a lot of companies they want those contracts. it will bring jobs to america as well. the prototypes already. several prototypes.
the wall behind uses you can see through it do yo do you prer that. >> president trump will make the final decision about the structure of the wall. but the first step is that congress has to fund it. and you know, we were disappointed this week, but, look, we're going to stay on it. and the president is absolutely committed. our whole yation is to work with republicans in the house and the senate to. work with democrats in the house and the senate. and find a way to build this wall and to solve the daca problem and reform our immigration system. it's absolutely imperative we do it. and once that fund something provided, we'll make the decisions and i guarantee you, this builder turned president will get that wall built faster than you could possibly imagine. steve: very thorough. you spoke to some of the border patrol agents down along the border are they
happen this president is taking a different tact than the last one. ainsley: they gave me the border patrol hat and very supportive of this president and this administration many of them told me. they are kind of torn because a lot of them come from mexican families where their parents immigrated here and so their families are not necessarily supportive of the jobs that they're doing. i talked to one agent who wrote a book and he said i would love to come on "fox & friends" and share my story. i want -- i fought poor my country for 10 years. then i became a border patrol agent i don't have the support of my family. they are saying i'm arresting my own people. he said the law is the law and i want to follow the law. and, you know, the paycheck is nice and he supports this administration. the vice president went there and had a round table discussion with the secretary of home land security and you saw senator ted cruz there. they had a round table with all of the big head honchos down there to find out what their needs are. ms-13 was discussed. opioid problem, illegal drugs. i think the vice president was listening to all of them
and will take that back to washington. brian: border patrol will be a part of it if they get more money. meanwhile, talk about more of that later. and dan bongino talks about all of this and discusses it and guns when we come back. mak, there's something else: an underlying breakthrough that makes it all possible. at qualcomm, we're leading the world to 5g, and a new era of seamless interaction that will make the internet of things, the thing. for us, there's less fanfare. but soon enough, the technology that starts at qualcomm will be front and center on the world stage.
how's it going? - alright, how ya doing? - welcome! so, this is the all-new chevy traverse. what do ya think? this looks better than 99% of the suvs out there. it's very modern... sleek. maybe the most impressive part of the all-new traverse... is what's on the inside. surprise! what are you doing here? i've missed you guys. i haven't seen you guys in so long! what's happening? we flew her out. it's a family car, we had to put your family in it! yeah, it gets 7 thumbs up!

just for owning a home, but i'm not compromising. -you're taking a shower? -water pressure's crucial, scott! it's like they say -- location, location, koi pond. -they don't say that. ♪ say does that star-spangled banner yet wave. brian: that's who we are talking about today. ainsley: fergie's jazzed up edition of the national anthem falling flat many people who heard it being fergie licious. steve: draymond green spotted smiling at herren addition. brian: unlike other people she does have a good voice.
other players look stone-faced. it's gone viral on twitter. just about everyone is playing it i'm rather surprised that this is national anthem. go back to the old controversy where the song and people jazzing it up and changing it a little use you had to the most controversial thing. ainsley: i have seen her in concert and she sang one of her songs, the one about the city, god, what was that song she sang, and she invited all the kids to come up on stage. i was like i love her. because all the kids came um and they were singing. i really like her. i don't really like it when people take creative license with a song that's so traditional. steve: you don't have to spice up the national anthem. ainsley: la la la they do that addition to all the songs. steve: dang bongino former new york city cop, secret service agent. nratv as well. great voice in the shower i would imagine. but still, what did you think of that? >> you know, what was
absolutely priceless, i wassing on thii waswatching on k loop here. what is this? is this the national anthem of this country or another country? ainsley: she has been through a lot, dan. she and her husband just broke up. she looks great. steve: she got us all talking about her. ainsley: i like her hair cut. >> she looks great. what is the song she is singing is the question. brian: when i heard controversy with the national anthem. i thought oh my goodness did these all-stars take a knee? i'm glad we can talk about the musical element of it. >> good point. brian: friday afternoon extraordinary press conference took place and 36 page narrative was released that showed what the russians did. and 13 russians sanctioned about the intricacies of their cyber attack on our election system everything from bernie sanders to marco rubio to ted cruz and especially president trump bolstered by this russian
operation. how effective, i don't know. but in the big picture, i listen to jonathan temperature whether i steve a moment ago i'm thinking to myself the hit on trump is coming and they are going to go after officers. do you feel the same way? >> you know, brian, if i was donald trump right now. i would be pretty ticked off. first he is spied on by the obama administration in what was the most elaborate espionage scheme against a political candidate using police-state tactics that i have ever seen. secondly subject to government witch hunt for a collusion fairy tale that nobody can seem to prove. as a former federal agent let me tell you this and warn the entire audience here. here is the frightening thing about government witch hunts. they always find a witch. they will find something if this continues, brian, this should really disturb everyone. where are the liberals on this by the way the civil liberty advocates. they seemed to have embraced
the police state fully at this point. steve: listen to this. we have a sound bite for you jerry nadler a congressman, a democrat from new york state. he actually compared the russian meddling to pearl harbor. watch. >> this is a very serious attack against the united states by a hostile foreign power and an attack against our election process, our entire governing process. that we know that the attack is continuing. the president and the republicans in the house for that matter refuse -- refuse to do anything about protecting us from an attack. imagine if fdr had denied that the japanese attacked us at pearl harbor and didn't react. that's the equivalent. steve: is that the equivalent? >> i mean, do you believe -- i mean that's a real clip, right? you didn't like snip? steve: he is a real congressman. >> jerry nadler never ever -- do us all a favor, never ever do national and
cable media again. was that the most horrifying cut i think in this entire case. pearl harbor cooked in the water because of the oil leaked from the ships. they drownsd to death in car compartment. you are comparing that to the russians? are you kidding? what planet is he living on. ainsley: he is saying the president and republicans are to blame. keep in mind when all of this what is happening was the former administration. i don't know if it's fire blame any of them. these are russians over here trying to meddle with the election. brian: they deserve to be punished. >> i was on "fox & friends" this weekend. i pointed this out. irving pay attention to this. barack obama's last press conference in december of 2016, everybody go back and look at it they even played the video. what does barack obama himself say about this russian scheme and by the way, the russians are not innocent players in this. they are clearly attacking our democracy.
what does barack obama say about it. he says hey it's not like it's some kind of sophisticated scheme here and minimizes it and down plays it let me ask you this it, who is right jerry nadler and pearl harbor and nuke the russians or is barack obama right? is barack obama lying or jerry nadler? brian: i think russia has to start fearing us again and do something with their elections personally. dan, real quick on guns we know you do it. v work. where do you stand, are you make this situation better or two separate issues here? >> of course, brian. we all have to be. i have kids, too. i was a secret service agent. i spent my entire life trying to make the president and the country more secure. i'm not patting myself on the back. you all paid for it as taxpayers. we have to do things that work. if you are going to open the conversation on the other side of the issue that is by calling people accomplices to murder and insulting everyone who doesn't agree
with your program, then nothing is going to happen. we have to start with an open, honest dialogue and stop the bausch throwing. brian: gotcha. steve: looks like the conversation has started. dan bongino, we thank you for joining us today down in florida u. ainsley: thanks, dan. 42 minutes after the top of the hour. coming up, families still grieving after the florida school shooting. officials now making plans for students to return to class. where are they going to go? rob schmitt is live down in florida next.

sentinel actually sat down with the nee sneed family. brought in nikolas cruz last november after his mom died. imagine them having to process all of this. he was under their roof when this all happened and a quote coming from kimberly sneed, the mom of that family saying we had this monster living under our roof and we didn't know. now, th sneads saw nikolas cruz at the police station. they actually crossed paths because they were being interviewed about this as well and actually kimberly is reported to have lunged at nicholas while yelling really nik, really? she was restrained before getting to him. you can imagine how they felt about this. trying to help out a kid whose mom had just died and this is what happens in the end. nikolas cruz is clearly depressed. seemed very lowly. they still have no clue as to why he did. this what the motive was behind this shooting. and all this coming together over the weekend as the
funerals. we're going to see 17 funerals after all of this. they will continued over the weekend. they continued on sunday. we spoke to a 13-year-old girl who was at the funeral for 14-year-old jamie guttenberg as she is trying to process exactly what's happened here. >> she was only 14. and she didn't deserve that none of the kids deserve it. rob: imagine having to go through this at a young age trying to figure out why things like this happen. can you see behind me douglas high school students return here next monday although they won't be returning to building 12 where the shooting happened. sound like that will be demolished and replaced in the near term by trailers for kids to go to class in because this is a packed high school. it's a very large high school. over 3,000 students. if you want to help, and there is a lot of help needed down here because this is such a terrible story what has happened here in this great community has
been so devastating. the broward education fund has set up -- or the broad education foundation has set up the stoneman douglas victim's fund. can you see it there go fund me page. they have raised about $1.4 million so far. we hope that number just keeps on shooting up. send it back to you. ainsley: i wonder if the money goes to the victim's families or goes to rebuild the school. rob: victim's fund should go to the victim's families. victim's fund for the families and there is many people injured this the shooting as well. 14 people that were shot and survived as well u so, that money will certainly help. ainsley: lots of medical bills. brian: great job, thanks. steve: coming up on this monday, democrats say president trump is not doing enough to stop russia after robert mueller's new indictments against russians. what does the white house think? we'll get reaction from the white house in the next hour. brian: frederick douglass abolitionist icon patriot. the next guest says many on the left are trying to
brian: in the op-ed frederick douglass was a christian and patriot, why is this hard for the left to accept? author jeremy hunt disputes the left's view on frederick douglass to honor abolitionist leader on this presidents' day black history month. why are so many trying to rewrite his legacy. u.s. army officer and strategist for the douglas leadership institute jeremy hunt joins us now. jeremy, tell me first about frederick doufrederick doug las.
he was a statesman. he loved god and loved his country. i'm confused when did that become so controversial. his life is worth emulating by all americans today the way that he fought so adamantly against the evils of slavery while still loving his country. he set the example for us today. i'm just so honored to be able to speak about such an extraordinary american. brian: all right. here is one of the quotes from your column. frederick douglass' life what is missing in politics. he lived his life only to beliefs not agenda. he loved his god, family and his country. >> right. brian: what are people trying to change about his legacy? >> really what we are seeing now people are taking his bicentennial this past week, basically as an opportunity to to write his legacy. they want to say it's not true he was a christian.
just last year "the washington post" published an article that it's a myth that frederick douglass was a christian. he was ordained minister. he would have his family read scriptures before they could eat dinner. so here samantha was dedicated to his faith. he talks about it quite extensively in his autobiography. it's something that is worth talking about. we shouldn't be taking our contemporary visions and projecting them in the past. we should allow history to think for itself. brian: at a time when states thought good thing. frederick douglass was not only a power player. he was power player to presidents. he was important voice to lincoln. >> absolutely. i mean lincoln refers to him as his friend. what's so interesting about their relationship is the nuances there. they had disagreements. frederick douglass was against lincoln on some ends. he felt he should do more to emancipate the slaves sooner in some respects. the amazing thing about it after lincoln was asan sin nateed.
douglass memorialized him i take him holistically. i'm so thankfully that president lincoln was our president and emancipated the slaves. shows the type of relationship two people can have. they don't have to agree on everything, but ultimately it was a warm relationship. i think that's special and something we should learn from today as we look at politics. brian: at a time which you can understand how he might dislike america, you said he is a patriot. >> absolutely. on two things. one, here's a guy that ultimately after the emancipation of the slaves, he ended up being the first black to be appointed to a federal appointment. he was the u.s. marshal to the district of columbia. and he was actually confirmed by the senate. so he served his country as a statesman. he was also an official emissary to haiti as well. even before that, it was very interesting. he had his own abolitionist newspaper called the north star. during that time he actually broke away from william lloyd garrison and other abolitionists at that time. he did not believe that slavery and that evil was
written into the constitution of the united states. he didn't believe that was written into the d.n.a. of our nation. and so he actually had a big split with them at that time basically saying hey, this is not what america stands for. and he exhorted america to live up to its creed. that's why he fought so adamantly against slavery. brian: you are not wasting a minute if you read about his life you certainly reflecting on it and analyzing it was a benefit to everyone. jeremy hunts, thank you so much. >> thank you so much. appreciate it. brian: meanwhile, come up straight ahead over the next two hours. quote trained by the nra. media running wild with the claim over the florida shooter. turns out very misleading. johnny joey jones lost both his legs in afghanistan. he has a message by many in the media. that coming up. david bossie, one talking about immigration and one talking russia and more. ♪ everybody wants to rule the world.

re-election and the rnc. ainsley: people are suckers for sales. growing up i knew if something was on sale i could get my mom to buy it. brian: presidents' day. meanwhile two minutes after the top of the hour, we have to talk on not what the president was originally talking about last week. we are talking about immigration and infrastructure. after the horrific shooting on wednesday. we have been talking now about what led up to the shooting and what should change with the rash of school shootings in this country over the last 20 years. ainsley: people are saying enough is enough. it's time to talk about this. people have different reasons for why they think this happened. some it's the gun issue. others it's the mental health issue. republicans and democrats are coming together on capitol hill to try to come up with something so this doesn't happen again. steve: that's right. the president is down in mar-a-lago this morning. he flies back on air force one i think at 4:00 this afternoon. yesterday he met with speaker paul ryan at mar-a-lago to talk about the agenda for congress and also what to do about school shootings. the president also later
this week on wednesday is going to meet with a number of teenagers to hear their opinions on what this country could do. and then there is going to be a big, in fact the new york daily news calls it million kid march on washington on march the 24th. there are a lot of people who just say ainsley to your point earlier, something is not working, regarding the safety of our children in the schools and we have got to do something to protect them. brian: all right. here's the statement from sarah sanders. i was presently surprised to see this. he said the president spoke to senator cornyn on friday about the bipartisan bill he and senator murphy of connecticut introduced to introduce federal imlibs federal background legislation while discussions are ongoing and revisions are being considered, the president is spawivelg of efforts to improve the federal background check system. i for one and we discussed this before, you have to wonder if no one is charged criminally their background check is clean. i'm wondering if police reports should be included, especially for people under 21. in this case can you get an
ar-15, you could be 18. you could get a hand gun. you could wait to 21. i would love to see if someone came to your house multiple times but no one was charged. i would love to see that on background check because that needs follow-up. if i'm a gun store owner, i don't want. you do you know how bad that gun store owner knows. 36 times coming came to this kid's house. if they knew about the middle. ainsley: 389 times actually. brian: knew classmates threatened to shoot them in the past. if i'm a gun store owner, i want that out there. ainsley: then have you all these democrats saying get rid of the ar 15. get rid of the guns mornings gun control. hear republicans say we have the second amendment right, protect that and i need to protect my family. i need to make sure i have my guns so this doesn't happen in my house or in my school. steve: there were so many red flags that some people, you know, saw but didn't do
anything. some people did do stuff. brian the guy you talked to last week the youtube'ed to be a professional school shooter. he called the police. someone else who we don't know their identity called the fbi. the fbi dropped the ball. vindz like up on the house like they are going to call christopher wray who is the director of the fbi in front of them and say hey, how did this happen? we could have stopped it but you guys dropped the ball. ultimately what needs to happen, i think everybody in washington knows that unstable people should not have access to guns. that's just a given. so, what are they going to do about it? stay tuned. brian: they say in 2013. broward county used to be the most aggressively calling for law enforcement when they had a problem. they changed it. 2013 they said instead of going from school to jail, they said maybe we should get more directly involved with these kids and keep law
enforcement out of it and get child welfare and mental health, make that play a bigger role. clearly this guy had mental health issues. in fact, he was transferred out of the school and spent two years in another school for people with behavioral problems. for some reason he turned back up at parkland at this school. and then he ends up a year later kicked out. and then a few months later killing everybody. steve: it's good news that the president is talking to cornyn who has written a bill with chris murphy of connecticut to do something about the background. so stay tuned on that as well. ainsley: all right. at the end of the week robert mueller indicted 13 russians who were trying to come over here and interfere with our election people are asking what does this mean for the russia collusion because he said no americans were involved that the administration is cleared? there are so many different questions this morning. jonathan turley was on our show, law professor.
this is what he had to say about trump officials being unwitting contacts. >> the most interesting aspect came down to an adjective describing trump officials as unwitting contacts. both the indictment and deputy attorney general rosenstein said that there was no evidence of knowing interaction between trump officials and this rather large campaign operation or election operation by the russians. investigation is going to continue. but i think that people are engaging in willful blindness to ignore that this is the fairly significant admission. steve: that's right. one other thing so many people have said well, obviously russia tried to help donald trump get elected. ultimately, what, according to this indictment is they were trying to sow discord in our democracy. just whoever is running, oh she is ahead? let's help this other guy. and then once he was elected president, the russians mounted a disinformation campaign against donald
trump. ainsley: they had the -- some protesting for him. some protesting against him. they organized both rallies. steve: just to kind to stir the pot. brian: 40 times they used facebook. mentioned 40 times they used facebook. nine times paypal. 11 times twitter. and one time youtube. so they used social media. there is no proof that it swung the election although john podesta indicated that did sway the elections. you can understand how he feels after doing a horrible job running hillary clinton's campaign. other picture for those who say that the president is out of the woods, not if you look at what jonathan turley just brought up to you is paul manafort is indicted on something that has nothing to do with president trump. you just wonder is president trump's 50-year big business international success story going to be analyzed by robert mueller and does that have anything to do, which is in the country's best interest.
steve: department made it very clear the interference did not change the outcome of the election. keep in mind this whole, you know, the search. brian: nothing to do with what i said though is roberts muller's probe going to go into donald trump's business and start just finding fought anyone walked against traffic at 9 years old. steve: that's exactly what i was going to get to. remember how this whole thing started. started russian collusion couldn't find any of that remember obstruction of justifiable he fired that guy. right now doesn't look like it. maybe they will be looking into his dealings with dich bank which has in the past been fined with millions of dollars of money laundering. dan bongino was with us an hour ago. he says donald trump should be ticked off at whom? listen. >> if i was donald trump right now, i would be pretty ticked off. first he is spied on by the obama administration and what was the most elaborate espionage scheme against the political candidate using police state tactics that i have ever seen.
secondly, he is subject to a government witch-hunt for a collusion fairy tale that nobody can seem to prove. this should really disturb everyone. and where are the liberals on this by the way. civil liberty advocates. they seemed to have embraced the police state fully at this point. ainsley: this is why people say don't sit down with special counsel because they will use everything against you. collusion? no, obstruction of justifiable, not so far. but maybe if he sits down and talks about it so they can catch him for something he did or some traffic violation. brian: loan he took out in 191998 from deutsche bank. does that have anything to do with president he? put his business behind to run for this. that's the thing you wonder if did you anything in your past can anyone's life hold up to a robert mueller three year investigation with some of the finest, most respected, i would say, most lethal lawyers out there today? steve: well, as jonathan turley told us once upon a time in a witch-hunt, they always find a way. ainsley: all right. let's hand it over to jillian who has headlines for us with breaking news.
jillian: let's get straight to the fox news alert. isis just claiming responsibility for ambush style attack killing at least 27 iraqi led troops overnight. jihaddists disguising themselves as iraqi soldiers at fake check point in the northern city of kirkuk. coming days after plans to increase effort in the ravaged region. funerals continuing for the 17 victims of last week's school shooting in florida as loved ones post tributes for those lost in the tragedy. the fiancee of geography teacher scott beigel speaking out for the terrorist time. he left her instructions if he died in a shooting quote promise if this ever happens to me you will tell them the truth. tell them what a jerk i am. don't talk about the hero stuff. he was shot and killed while trying to lock his classroom door to keep the gunman out. and there is now a petition to the white house calling

right. but you want to fix it. right. so who sent you? new guy. what new guy? watson. my analysis of sensor and maintenance data indicates elevator 3 will malfunction in 2 days. there you go. you still need a pass. >> the president took a stand for the constitution and the rule of law, but he set a timetable to march the 5th to say congress has to come together and work in such a way to not only solve the daca problem but also to keep the promises that he made to the american people.
brian: but can congress get it done and can the president keep that promise and build a wall? here to weigh in on what's next for immigration because it seems dead in the senate and struggling in the house, kansas secretary of state kris kobach, he helped draft the president's immigration policy and also the four pillars which is out there which some on the right aren't even happy with those four pillars because they include 1.8 daca kids with a path to citizenship. first off, would you like to see something done in the senate and the house or you would rather have the current system than what you see out there? >> well, i think the best outcome would be the goodlatte bill out of the house which is a very limited amnesty only for 700,000. bear in mind that amnesty is bad policy and it hurts our country it is outweighed by a bunch of good things. everify for the whole nation. getting rid of chain migration. that's the only deal that i think is even remotely acceptable. you know, brian, what i see happening is this. absolutely nothing coming
out of the congress because we saw last week what the senate did. they debated on four different proposals, none of those proposals could get to 60 votes. so what that tells the house members is, look, if we spend weeks, you know, deliberating on a house bill, we will throw it over to the senate and it's not going to pass the senate anyway. they may be thinking, you know what? why waste the time when we will spend all that time and energy. we will throw it in the trash and do nothing. >> that's one thing you could say. goodlatte bill get changed or not pass that republican dominated in the house. as conservative as you are, and congressman goodlatte is even though is he retiring. not enough conservatives agree with that next on the senate side, evidently the bipartisan thing that senator rounds sponsored called the common sense coalition the thing that blew that up was scribbled in the margins june 20th, 201, so you basically had all problems with felons and everything exonerated unless it happened after june 30th, 2018. so the president saw that and said you have got to be
kidding me. i'm not going to go for that. >> just to clarify for people watching, what it meant was you aren't going to be deported if you get to this country before june 20th, 2018. her upand come across the border because you want to get in before this date. we are only going to deport people after that date. outrageous. perspective am necessity for people not even here yet. ridiculous. brian: if the president want to build the wall. he got 25 billion to do that. huge promise for the american people. something that clinton, bush, and obama couldn't do. was that enough of a win and then go back and get more with the lottery and chain? >> yeah, i think. so he has enough to start with we have got to start building that wall. if we don't stop the leaking in the boat it's never going to solve the problem. we will sink. brian: not going to get anything unless something dramatically changes. kris kobach, thank you. >> see you later.

ainsley: we are back with headlines for you starting with a fox news alert. isis is now claiming responsibility for a deadly attack on a church in russia. a gunman armed with a knife and a hunting rifle opening fire on christian worshipers leaving a service killing five women. the attacker shot and killed by security officers. five others, including a police officer, and a national guardsman are injured. and white house chief of staff john kelly throwing down to protect our nuclear codes, according to axios, chinese officials tried to stop a military aid from carrying those codes into a state building in beijing
when kelly found out, he got into a physical altercation with chinese security. the codes are kept in a briefcase known as the nuclear football and must be carried with the president at all times. that's interesting. steve: it is. brian: jonathan swan, a great story there. steve: meanwhile, just days since tragedy struck their school in parkland, florida. this weekend, seven members of the majory stoneman douglas high school football team inspired by their hero coach aaron feis attended, who died last week attended the orange bowl's high school recruiting showcase. brian: players say it was what coach feis would have wanted. rob schmitt spoke to the team about the event and their coach and his legacy. rob: the definition of a hero is what i would saw about assistant coach aaron feis. he actually jumped in front of bullets trying to save lives of students at this school when this gunman opened fire in this horrific
event. and over the weekend, there was a combine for football players here, a chance to get a scholarship and move on to college. these kids had a choice to make about whether or not to go out there and try to do this after the week that they had had. they made the decision the night before saying this is what coach feis would have wanted. coach feis would have been with you here today. >> coach feis was where we were. if we were sr., he was there. rob: not having him here, it looks like from what i saw you guys still played your hearts out on this field here. >> i think these guys knew that's what he would want them to do. he would want them to come out and ball out and give everything you h not only just for ourselves but to support douglas high school. and our whole community. we're not going to quit. we're not going to lay down. we're going to stay strong and we're going to keep doing what we do. rob: how proud o are you of these kids?
>> oh my lord, i can't tell you how proud i am for these kids. it's hard for them to come out here. >> everyone in this program is one is a family. they came out here and made not only themselves proud but our school proud. rob: coach feis, tell me something you loved about him, give me. >> he was a great guy. he cared about everyone and everything. i don't know. i'm honestly just speechless about everything. shocked. >> going to be expecting him when i go back but he's not going to be there. this is my outlet right here. >> we have strong young men around us and we have to keep pushing and helping each other out. >> i knew coach feis would want me to come here. i had to come out here to support and i had to make it towards him so i came out here and balled out. this was for him. rob: how was it today. >> good. doing what we love and he loved it, too. so he would want us to come out here. >> i feel like he is not really gone. he is more here with us in my heart.
every time i get on the field, he is there. >> i kind of came out here and was kind of rethinking it. i was like i walked occupant on the field this kind of hurts. my big man standing. he was actually supposed to come to this. rob: if he could have told you whether or not to do, this do you think he would have said get your butt on that field and go play. >> he would have said no question. if we even talked about us not going, he would have been very, very, very upset. everybody loved him. he was probably one the greatest men i have ever met. i will keep saying that until the day i die that he was one of the greatest men i are have ever met. i want to send prayers to the families. i have every single victim on my shoe. coach hixon, the athletic director. joaquin oliver, meadow, mr. beigel. alyssa, jamie, we have everybody. all 17.
rob: aren't they great kids? they really are great players on that team. great teachers and coaches here in this community and the quarterback's father who was there at that combine trying to go for a scholarship. he said, you know, my teenage son is about to go to more funerals here in the next week than most people will ever go to. he was so grateful that his son had a chance to get out there and play football and be happy and normal for a few minutes or a couple hours in the midst of what will likely be the hardest, hopefully the hardest week of his life. that really was important and nice to see them kind of get back on the field. if you want to help out this community, if you want to help out the victims of this shooting, 17 killed, 14 injured, by the bullets inside this school, the broward education foundation has set up the stoneman douglas victim's fund. that is on go fund me. the stone man douglas victims fund. $1.4 million raise sod far for the victims of this shooting. we really are hoping to see that number skyrocket. so if you want to help. there's where you go. guys, send it back to you.
brian: so glad you went out there. that is a great perspective. steve: they are trying to move on. the coaches are never far from what they are thinking about. ainsley: thank you, rob. we read a story from the sun sentinel talking about the family he lived with after his adoptive mother died in november and they had no clue that he was this depressed. they knew he was depressed about his adoptive mother dying. they got a call, the dad got a call from police saying where's your son? and he said my son? my son didn't do. this i know where my son is he hung up the phone and realized oh my gosh, they are talking about this other kid, the shooter. steve: there son actually went to that high school. ainsley: he picks the phone back um and calls the cops and says i know how are talking about. that kid has been living with us. he said you've got to send police to my house right now. my wife is there asleep because she is a neonatal nurse has to work the night shift go. there and make sure she is okay. he called biological son and said son i will be there when i can.

to treat this as an act of war. or something very extreme and have a forceful response to russia, you know, the first place that democrats should look is at the previous administration. they knew about this effort in 2014. brian: right. >> they failed to act for several years, i think the president is looking at the whole world. he actually is responsible for america's foreign policy. he doesn't just get to complain from congress or the peanut gallery. and is he working with the russians in some areas and holding them to account in others. brian: couple times november of 2017 president trump says he agrees with russian meddled in the election. president trump says as for hacking i think it was russia. raj, can we expect in light of the stunning 36-page indictment and the detail and the sophistication of this operation that lasted for three years, can we expect the president to have additional action against this country who clearly doesn't fear or respect us?
>> well, i won't get ahead of what the president is prepared to announce. but i wouldn't for one second say that his foreign policy has not been effective. he has gotten russia to go along with sanctions against north korea at the united nations. he has gotten them to go along with enforc efforts in afghanistan and the middle east. brian: they have been cheating on the sanctions. he called them out for cheating on the changes sanctions the russians were meeting them in the middle of the ocean and giving them supplies. >> he has. and we will continue to call out russia. look, relations with russia are in a tough place. these election meddling efforts have a lot to do with it. there are other things that have a lot to do with it. you know, we have to work with russia in some areas. they are an adversary and faux in some places. ally in other places. it's up to the russians whether or not they want a constructive relationship with the united states or add remember sailor one. this president has been consistent and members of congress who want us to, you know, declare war on russia,
because of this matter, really are misguided. steve: let's talk a little bit about what has gone on in the past week down in parkland, florida, 17 high school students in some of the staff murdered, we understanding the president of the united states did reach out to john cornyn. he has co-authored a bill with chris murphy of connecticut. it's called the fix nics act. which would toughen up background checks. what's the status of that? >> well, the president did talk to senator cornyn on friday. the bill that he announced last year or introduced last year, you know, would help to fix and complete up the background checks system. right now you have a bit of a patchwork in which local communities and states give information to, you know, one system. our budget has increase for 200 personnel to help staff that system. we want to make sure that the background check process is fully staffed. that all information gets in. and, you know, when you look at the situation that occurred, this tragedy in
florida on wednesday really heart wrenching situation, you have a scenario where a lot of people in the community were raising red flags about this individual. steve: sure. >> and you have the phone call to the finn. to the fbi. when you are looking at ways to fix this system. look at measures like fixing the background situation. also want to understand what broke down and allowed for this individual to go on unattended while other people were raising red flags. steve: raj, you would also agree, the white house i imagine would agree, unstable people should not have access to guns? >> of course. unstable, dangerous people who law enforcement and their own family members are flagging as the case here, should never have access to a deadly weapon of that sort. and we want to make sure that we can do that in the proper way. ainsley: raj, you mentioned the fbi dropping the ball. there are calls for christopher wray to resign, the head of the fbi after the failure to do anything about this kid. they were warned about it. information never made it
down to the field office in miami. where does the president stand on christopher wray's resignation or does he think he should stay or go? >> well, i haven't spoken to the president about director wray. this wasn't a matter that he was personally involved in. but i will say that he, the attorney general, and others have said that they need to look into exactly what happened, why this information that was clearly given to somebody at a call center was not forwarded to the miami field office. was not circulated to the pront authorities so they could take action. right now you have a situation. just step back for a second. a lot of democrats are calling for gun control for, you know, whole classes of firearms to be banned. whether you have a scenario where dozens of police reports, calls to their home, you have the aunt making this call to the fbi. at the federal, state, and local level, there was a bit of a breakdown in the process and we want to figure out what went wrong.
brian: there is no question. push back make kids wait until 21 to get an a.r.-15. i wouldn't see a problem with that police reports going on someone's background check. when you have a cop comes 36 times. ainsley: 39. brian: 39 times u no arrest record. if i could see that i think it would help the gun owner and help people survive should that guy be a psychopath. >> no. i think all the ideas that you talked about are really good ones. all of them are ideas we should look at. again, a dangerous person who poses a threat to his community, threat that his family is identifying, should be taken care of and should be looked at on the front end and we're not kind of scrambling after a traditional tragedy like that. steve: well, the system did not work last week. all right, raj, thank you very much for joining us on
this presidents' day. >> thanks so much for having me. ainsley: thank you. brian: time to go over to jillian. hey, jillian. jillian: good morning. happy monday. get you caught up on other
headlines starting with. this jeff sessions telling fox news in exclusive interview he has opened 27 investigations into who is shaving classified information. >> we are going after this aggressively. i have directed it personally. some of the matters involve this matter and some of it is a matter that i'm not recused on and we are pursuing aggressively. jillian: prior to taking office, the attorney general says there were only three open investigations. former hillary clinton campaign chairman john podesta gets grilled about 2016 campaign failures in the midwest. >> how is it that these russian operatives knew to focus on purple states like michigan and wisconsin and your campaign didn't? >> well, of course we spent a lot of time and energy and effort in all those cases. >> hillary clinton herself did not spend much time in those states. >> we had was there, barack

florida some media outlets ran headlines like these suggesting that the nra was behind the rifle team. brian: johnny joey jones taking to social media sound off saying this on twitter account i lo how you made this click bait headline and then went on to explain how family and medical leave act added 2 million to supplement to public grants already going to rotc. a program that has been a huge resource for minority and poor children to go to college and serve their country. great job, patriots. ainsley: john johnny joey jones thank you four joining us and for your service. >> thanks for having me. ainsley: trained by the flar. on rifle team that got grant. nikolas cruz was family and medical leavnra funded teamin h. do you think the nra is to
blame. >> not at all. cruz is to blame. i hope he gets the punishment due to him. brian: he blamed the rotc program. can you blame the rotc program? people immediately go back and are going to start blaming other people besides the actual killer. >> i think that groups like think progress are going after the nra because they are a big backer of republican congressman. no different than taking an attack out on the koch brothers or sheldon in las vegas. it has nothing to do with what they actually do as far as policy goes. the nra promotes responsible gun ownership. which is something we should all agree on. it's about the fact that this is on the right side of the aisle. that's really all it is. ainsley: right. if you start to punish, saying start to punish everyone else who is responsible with their gun because of one bad apple or look they rotc the majority of those kids go on to do great things and fight for our country. do you feel that there is a
case for those who believe that maybe this guy who seems to be, is clearly is a nut job and had all of these things against him. the police went to his house 3 times over the course of seven years when he lived with his adoptive mother. this kid, we don't know what the details were. if it was for him or his brother or what the case was. there is definitely a red flag there did he things to animals. do you think there needs to be some sort of a law where a kid that young should not or those many problems should not get his hands on this type of a gun? >> >> absolutely. i think we have a majority of those laws already on the books. you know, i don't understand how the fbi wasn't able to follow up but i don't work at the fbi. when you go after the age. we have 18-year-olds defending our country every day. that's a hard one to just blanket and punish the many for the sins of the few. if it takes raising the age from 18 to 21 because data shows that the majority of
these guys doing things like this are below 21. then that's an argument. if the evidence doesn't show that it just makes people feel safe. brian: overall hand gun does a lot more damage, sadly than rifles and ar-15s. that's what the numbers say. johnny joey jones, thanks so much. ainsley: thank you. >> absolutely. thanks for having me on. ainsley: come up. one antique store owner might have to close up her shop because of this flag supporting our police. that owner is going to join us live next.

really complain until recently and when they started on facebook and started getting kind of nasty. we said we would take it down. and we took it down for a good month. and then i thought it was kind of over with. and then my neighbor called and said oh my gosh, we called the police, cherri don't be surprised when you get here because there is a message on your window. steve: now the flag is not up. who do you think is behind this? who is trying to scare you? >> i don't know. i'm not sure. we have a -- i have some ideas. but i surely wouldn't want to accuse anybody of something that horrible without knowing for sure. steve: well, it's so disappointing because i mean if we don't have the police, what's between us and anarchy, really? >> there's absolutely nothing. and that's the point. i don't know who i would call if i needed someone at my business. it also makes my customers
feel safe. it makes me feel safe. it makes my daughter who work in the store feel safe. i don't know what we would do. steve: yeah. but you are still 100 percent behind the police but because somebody is out there who is trying to do something. >> trying to scare us. steve: the flag is down. >> right. it's down. steve: is there a plan to put it up at some point? >> i told my daughters if -- we're not going to change anything we do. if they want to put it up, put it up. but just don't put it up for spite or for any other reason than that -- we still support the police. that will not change. steve: right. 100 percent. okay. well, thank you very much for joining us, cherri from st. louis to tell us your story. it's too bad. >> thank you. steve: what do you think about that? email us at email@example.com. couple that took in the

terrify a school. where a mass murderer leave a family grieving. they are planning a big march into our nation's capitol on the march 24th. they're trying to get washington's attention. something has to be done. we were talking toerags shaw, the white house principle deputy press secretary. president reached out to john cornyn, who reached out to democrats, what is happening? listen. >> you have a scenario where a lot of people in the community were raising red flags about the individual, with a phone call to the fbi. if you look at ways to fix the system, look at measures like fixing the background check system. you have to understand what broke down and allowed for this individual to go on unattended while other people are raising red flags? unstable, dangerous, people who law enforcement and their own family members are flagging the case here should never have access to a deadly weapon of that sort. and we want to make sure we do that in the proper way.
brian: talking about red flags, as early as middle school, a middle school teacher told this reporter i was afraid to be alone with him. he used to draw stick figures of guys with guns. he used to write down on some papers, he wants to kill president obama and eat him alive. he used to go into the hallway, pick fights and profanity-laced tirades. he finally gets in two years later is back. by 2017, got in trouble four times in school. he gets kicked out and comes back, shoots whole thing up. sadly his mom dies in november. maybe she was the person keeping him somewhat out of trouble. ainsley: somewhat. brian: keeping him somewhat stable, whatever that is. ainsley: the mom can only do so much. the police came to house 39 times in seven years. we don't know the details. the adoptive mother died in november. the adoptive dad died when he
was five. doesn't have any parents. the kid he went to school with, before he was expelled. can he ask to live with us. he served country, the dad did. mom was neonatal nurse. she was sleeping during the day. out of goodness of their open hearts took him in. steve: they appeared on television the last half hour. the perp who shot all those kids and staff last week was not the perp they took into their home. that is what they said. listen. >> he was very polite. he didn't, he seemed normal. he told my son he was going to the movies. he said he had something to tell him and my son pressed it, what is it, what is it? nothing bad, bro. that was it. he said he was going to the movies. the last text my son got was, yo, and that was it. at that point i got in touch with my son who was fleeing the
scene at that point. and description came out and we put two and two together. >> still can't process what he has done. this wasn't the person he knew. brian: he had six guns, kept them under lock and key in the gun box. cleaned it, put it backs, 15 minutes later. they believe he had another key made. they believe he was able to take out an ar-15, hopped in an uber to shoot up the school. this is typical planned out. they don't wing it. they think about it. they plan it. ainsley: i mentioned kimberly snead was sleeping during the day, she worked at night. the dad, the guy that took him in. he got a call from the cops, your son did this at the school. that guy is not my son. and then he hung up the phone, he realized oh, my word, that is the kid that has been staying with us. you need to send cops to my house right now. my wife is sleeping. they're at my house. i want to make sure she is okay. steve: they did not see the
danger signs. of course they feel terrible. meanwhile talk a little bit this on friday. robert mueller's investigation, indicted 13 russian nationals, three corporations as well. and it made it very clear that russia for a number of years has been trying to sow discord in the united states of america. were they trying to tip the scale in favor of donald trump? no. they just wanted to screw everything up. we had jonathan turley on, professor at george washington university and he said one of the key phrases in the indictment was that no americans wittingly helped the russians. listen to this. >> the most interesting aspect came down to an adjective describing trump officials as unwitting contacts. both the indictment and deputy attorney general rosenstein said that there was no evidence of knowing interaction between trump officials and this rather
large campaign operation or election operation by the russians. the investigation is going to continue but i think people are engaging in willful blindness to ignore this is fairly significant admission. brian: the fact is, they were out unwittingly going with some americans who thought that is cause i can agree with. whether pro-jill stein. it was anti-ted cruz or marco rubio. they're out there, 50, 60% of the events took place and financed after the election was already decided. they finance ad pro-trump rally. they financed and supported, got people involved in a president trump is not my president rally in new york city. and no one had any idea. for some people say they started this attack not for president trump because after all they started doing it in 2014. president trump wasn't even thinking about running in 2014. maggie haberman of "the new york times" says he is thinking about running before 2014. even his family didn't think he was going to run for president until a week before he actually
declared. no way in 2014 the russians knew he was going to run for president. steve: unfortunately the obama administration knew this was going on. they were trying to do something to impact the american democracy and ultimately they were trying to sow discord. so they, you know, they stirred the pot with the 2014 election, with the 2016 election and then after donald trump was elected and keep in mind people are saying well, obviously the russians wanted donald trump to in. after donald trump was elected they sent all types of people to the anti-trump rallies to sow discord with donald trump. not like he is their guy, they are trying to screw thing up here. ainsley: was their involvement here in america? do we know all the details, where they were living, what names they were using? brian: shows we have to unwind it and stop the next one. they have proven in testimony with our intelligence chiefs out
there, there is already indicating they're messing with 2018 elections with fake news or bots. nobody knows more than about cyber technology than us we have to stop them here. they have an election coming up. why don't we get involved in their election? why don't we flick the lights. the only thing they understand is direct confrontation. they don't fear us and they don't respect us. that has to change. steve: the key the indictment made it very clear that the russian meddling did not impact the election. they were very clear about that. ainsley: they did say that. let's hand it over to jillian with headlines for us. jillian: let's start with a fox news alert. isis claiming responsibility for ambush-style attack killing 27 iraqi troops. the jihadists disguisings themselves as iraqi soldiers in the northern city of kirkuk. it came days after nato announced plans to increase
efforts in the conflict-ravaged region which declared victory over the terrorist organization two months ago. two dozen passengers are kicked off a carnival cruise ship after series of violent brawls. some guests on the carnival legend locking themselves in the room to avoid the fight. it was docked in australia to take a large family off. one man stop stepped on another man's flip-flops. a quick thinking pilot, only one on board when the engine failed, avoiding landing in the median and smashing with cars. >> my king tip was out into the number one lane. a couple of cars moved over to make room for me. i'm sure it's a day they will remember. everything worked out fine. >> how scary was it? >> not at all. jillian: he is okay. the plane wasn't damaged. austin dillon on top of the nascar world after winning the
daytona 500. >> austin dillon, wins the 60th running of the great american race. >> a car wreck. jillian: driving the number 3 car to glory once again after 20 years dale earnhardt, sr.'s driving zamindar. avoiding a wreck with two helps to go. the other knocking out danica patrick in her final nascar race. ainsley: do you think he should have let her win? jillian: no. ainsley: brian said yes. jillian: don't let someone win. if someone lets you win something as you winner you know you didn't earn it. brian: doesn't matter. doesn't matter. you still get a lot of sponsorships and endorsements. ainsley: dating aaron rodgers, is that right? jillian: lauren says she got her prize.
ainsley: we go one-on-one with vice president pence. steve: you went one-on-one. ainsley: we're a team. down on the border. what he says about building that wall and exclusive interview coming up. brian: steve: president trump says robert mueller's indictments indicate them. do they? david bossie on that next. ♪ -- vindicate him.
steve: we have been telling but robert mueller's indictments, 13 russians and corporations charged with meddling with our election. no sign of any trump collusion at this point. does this prove the president has been vindicated. and where does the probe go here? david bossie is former trump campaign manager and coauthor of "let trump be trump." he joins us on president's day. good morning to you. >> good morning. steve: is this individualcation of the president? >> we know this vindication this indictment shows, proves, beyond a shadow of a doubt this president and our campaign had nothing to do with it. there was no collusion, cooperation, coordination with the russians. the hoax this mt. has talked
about has been proven. there was no involvement with us with the russians at all during this campaign. as a matter of fact, you know this indictment shows that there was more done after the election before the election. we're dealing with hundreds of dollars. if you look at byron york's piece, $900 spent in pennsylvania, $1800 spent in michigan, wisconsin. the president won those states because is sheer outworked hillary clinton. we ran a better campaign. he had better issues and she was a terrible candidate. that is what this shows. steve: you blame the russians obviously but you also blame barack obama and james comey. >> oh, absolutely. look, we now know through this indictment this started in may of 2016. 2 1/2 years before the election. before donald trump was a candidate before. many people were candidates but here's the point. james comey need to answer, so
does loretta lynch, so does secretary johnson, the secretary of homeland security, and barack obama. why did they fail? if they saw this, if they knew that the russians were trying to impede in our 2016 elections, why did they fail? the dereliction of duty goes across the board for the obama administration. steve: sure. you know, david, some people say, you know, obviously the russians wanted donald trump to win the presidency. as soon as he does they do all the anti-trump stuff, so which is it, guys? >> look, if the russians had had, if the soviets had in the '80s, facebook, google, all of these online opportunities they would have used them. that is what they're learning here. they're going back to their subterfuge of the old days. they have want to disrupt our country. they want to disrupt our elections and that's what they're doing. and so what president trump has to do, this is just my humble
opinion, is give direction to, probably already has done it, is to our law enforcement and our intelligence agencies say, this must never happen again. i think that, that's what he and his responsibility and his role should do today but this is all on barack obama for the 2016 election. steve: all right. donald trump is president now. so if he is going to do something to russia, we'll all be interested to see what that might be, david. thank you very much for joining us live today. >> thanks for having me. steve: all right. meanwhile a florida's teacher's post about gun violence is going viral after the school shooting in parkland. she says parents need to step up when it comes to their kids behavior. larry winget says that teacher is his hero and he joins us live next.

a book quote, what is wrong with damn near everything, larry winget. why was this a sigh of relief to read that on facebook? >> she was one of the few people, not many of us are willing to put the blame where it really belongs, that is on parents. most of the problems we're experiencing right now do come down to bad parenting. nobody wants guns in the hands of people who have mental health problems but what we can have an impact on, we don't have a lot of impact on those things. we do have an impact though on the way our kids think and treat others. that is what parents can do. see if i don't care about you, i don't respect you or what you say or think or anything that you own, then it doesn't really matter how i treat you or what i do to you. and parents can step in and teach their children how to respect others and how to care about others. that is what's missing right now in society more than any other thing. if she said compassion, and caring about other people.
steve: the problem, larry, enough parents are not deeply involved in the lives of their children. they barely know them. >> well if they would get their butts off the couch from watching tv and everybody get their nose out of their phone, and not think that their kids going off to the room and shutting bedroom door playing videogames was normal behavior, they actually talked to their kids, communicated to their kids, interacted with their kids and became involved, we could change that but that takes time, and sadly, parents aren't willing to dedicate the time, they just can't be bothered with it. they're leaving parenting up to as she pointed out, videogames, television and to the schools. we've got to stop blaming everyone else and start to be responsible as parents, not only for our children but for our own behavior and set a good example. ainsley: larry, do you think for parents watching that might have become their friends to their
kids, and they don't want their kids, they're seeing their kids going wayward, they're not disciplinarians, what should they do? is it too late? >> you know it is not too late. the first thing i tell parents, that really bothers them, sit down with their kids and apologize. that's right. apologize to your kids for your behavior for becoming their friend and not being their parent. i'm sorry, that is the way it has been but now i'm going to take control again. we're going to be a family. that means as a family i'm in charge. i want to know who you are, and what you're doing. i want to see what you'ring doing on social media. we're going to have rules. we're going to have consequences. we'll talk about situations like this, and i'm going to know your friends. and when you do that, it will shock your kids but i'm telling you, if you do it and your consistent with it, then you can start to turn things around and we'll see a real different in our schools and in society overall. brian: give up the friendship when they're teenagers, they will respect you when they're 25, 30, 35.

priority of border security, building a wall, beginning process of reforming our immigration system. being here on the border, seeing the work that our border patrol does every day, it just underscores the need for the congress to come together to provide the funding for a border wall system that will enhance the security of our country and prevent the flow not only of illegal immigrants and individuals that represent danger in our communities. and the flow of illicit drugs. it is time for congress to act. i feel more convinced about that having been here today, received briefings that we receive. ainsley: what was your reaction when the senate did not pass the immigration bill? >> i think it was a great disappointment to millions of americans who see the four pillars of president trump's proposal, but also, it is a deal that permanently solves the issue of daca. you have 1.8 million people brought into this country as
minors are here through no fault of their own, president trump with the compassion of the american people said we're willing we should solve that. ainsley: what happens now to these daca recipients? >> they remain in limbo. the president took a stand for the constitution and rule of law but he set a timetable to march the fifth to say now congress has to come together and work in such a way to not only solve the daca problem but also to keep the promises that he made to the american people. ainsley: you're here with secretary nielsen and with senator ted cruz. what did you learn today that you didn't know before that will help you, that you will take back to washington? >> i have learned we made great progress in securing our border since president trump took office. illegal crossings are down nearly 50% but even against that backdrop, the american people deserve to know that we still apprehend 1100 people attempting to come into this country every
single day. in this district alone, 85 individuals have been incarcerated for their association with ms-13. so we have real challenges. ainsley: mr. vice president, we are on the mexico side of the wall. if anyone swims through the rio grande here, that is what they face. we don't have a wall across the border but you would like that to happen, correct? >> president trump made a commitment to the american people, we'll build a wall. that means we'll have a physical barrier on the southern border. ainsley: when we were doing a boat tour through the rio grand. we saw mexican police on other side. many were standing on a cliff. we told that was rock alley, mexicans will put rocks and sling shots fire them over on to our border, border agents, sometimes hit them. what made you want to go do that today? >> for me it is always about
seeing and understanding. and to be out on the rio grand and to see a river that at some points is less than 150 yards wide. a river where literally every day people are entering the water and swimming across. sometimes with rapid currents, risking themselves and risking minor children to come into the country illegally. these border patrol agents take great risk every day and unfortunately, in 2017 we saw 73% increase in assaults against border patrol personnel. ainsley: if we build a wall there are a lot of companies want those contracts. it will bring jobs to america as well. the prototypes are already. the wall behind us you see through it, do you prefer that? what type of wall would you like to see built? >> president trump will make the final decision about the structure of the wall but, the first step is that congress has to fund it. and, you know, we were
disappointed this week, but look, we're going to stay on it and the president is absolutely committed, our whole administration is to work with republicans in the house and the senate, to work with democrats in the house and the senate and find a way to build this wall and to solve the daca problem and reform our immigration system. it is absolutely imperative we do it. once that funding is provided, we'll make the decisions. i guarranty you, this builder-turned president will get that wall built faster than you can possibly imagined. brian: right now he turned down the deal that would give him 25 billion, because it wasn't enough for chain migration and lottery. ainsley: i'm telling you those border agents, hats off to them, when they ride the boats through the rio grande, there are people on mexican side throwing rocks over, they take fishing lines, throw them into the water, hoping that the hooks will hook our border agents. they lasso their boats to tip
them over. steve: why do they do that? to harass them. ainsley: absolutely. they are mad because our agents arrest them trying to come across the border. brian: border arrests are up again. ainsley: hidalgo area, the border agents are amazing. the food there is very good. steve: good job going down. spending tile away from your family to bring us that report. brian: the president taking on "oprah.." say "60 minutes" wasn't long enough for trump. steve: adam klotz is on fire, created explosion on the plaza, caused a boom so loud the cops showed up. this morning steve spangler is back. see what science trick he has up his leave today. ♪ ♪ we the people...

what do you think of that, do you believe he has the temperment to be president? ainsley: so president didn't like it. thought those were leading questions. they weren't fair. so he tweet this is out, just watch ad very insecure oprah winfrey who at one point i knew very well interview a panel of people on "60 minutes." the questions were biased and slanted, the facts were incorrect. hope oprah run so she can be exposed and defeated just like all of the others. brian: give you idea, she did a focus group two months ago with half trump supporters, half. [on. she was amazed that they said in touch, vehemently disagreed stayed in touch. became friends. no one changed each other's minds. she wanted update. she did an update. president took to the fact most of the probing went after protrump people, as if to say how could you be still pro-trump? steve: in "60 minutes" overtime, going back to the earlier point is she going to run for president, i'm humbled by the
