jillian: seven days is a long time to be overseas whether you have thousands of people right now not getting a paycheck. rob: it was an interesting day when that letter dropped and they were on the bus and we heard from chad pergram 245 there was a lot of fury on that bus and phone calls going out. jillian: have a great weekend. >> more than 1,000 migrants are now on mexico's doorstep as they inch closer to the u.s. border. >> if you could speak to president trump directly, what would you say to him? >> yeah, man, i say open borders. >> border security at the strongest level. that was my pledge. that's what we're going to do. >> nancy pelosi and the democrats growptionded by entrepreneurship. >> president trump nancy pelosi for a military aircraft for a trip to afghanistan. >> we have to keep them here to secure our border and end the shutdown. >> many democrats would like to make a deal. speaker pelosi will not let them negotiate. >> israel has hypnotized the

3:02 am
minute. right now a fox news alert. this honduran migrant caravan entering mexico. brian: i will take it from here, ainsley. more than 1,000 people ignoring warnings from the u.s. government and inching towards our border. steve: yesterday, when we saw griff jenkins last, he was in guatemala. and this morning we are waking up and, griff, you're in mexico wit with the caravan. griff: listen, guys, this is quite a significant development here. i'm standing in mexico. let me orient you to has developed. mexico has opened the border for migrant caravans. i'm standing on a bridge. i know it's dark. you see in the distance people, these tents being set up. that is the bridge come from guatemala. the city, they walk across that bridge. remember, back in october of last year, that bridge had gate on it where these people are was shutdown. there was a massive police presence, tear gas. and then as you go this way, these people are actually
3:03 am
walking back to guatemala. this is the entry point. did you go through here. this is where they would normally have absolute security and people stopping in and just beyond that a gate that they tore down. they have opened up the border. the mexican official telling our fixer here that they do not want to, quote, confront these migrants. want them to be welcomed. they are not stopping them. still offering a five day waiting period to get in. official one year work visa register migrants in mexico legally. many of them don't want to do it and they don't trust the mexican government and be registered for what would be asylum in mexico might prevent them from doing so in the u.s. the main point is these migrants at this hour, at 6:00 a.m. eastern time, 5 a.m. local. the border is wide open. there isn't a single immigration official standing in heir way, you will see them coming as they have gone pretty much all of them i have counted, i don't know, 500, 600, maybe 1,000 that have already gone and in to mexico freely, undean
3:04 am
terred from a single police official being here. on the way yesterday we spoke to one of the immigrant, a man that lived in indiana many years was deported. his name is will sanchez. here his s. his message for president trump. >> if they build a wall will that stop you from trying to go? >> if you could speak to president trump directly what would you say to him? >> yeah, man, i say open borders. griff frif and so, guys, as you can see, here is a grouch migrants walking in now. they were not stopped at any point by mexican officials. they are going to go this way and they are going to walk freely in to mexico. so, it is essentially a stark contrast from what we saw last year when the last mexican government tried to stop them. this one clearly letting them in and it's going to make it a lot easier to continue on their trek to the u.s. border. brian: is that roughly the place you were when they
3:05 am
came into resistance a couple months ago? griff: this is the exact spot. i'm standing where we saw the tear gas and where we saw the migrants in october tear down that fence and overbear, you know, with force to crash through the gates, if you will. this is that spot that is wide open right now. and not a single mexican police officer i can find. there was a mexican official that did not want to go on camera. we had to get a spokesman on camera. he said that our policy is this morning that they don't want to confront them and they want them to feel welcome. steve: griff, it's so extraordinarily different than what the hondurans saw in guatemala where they asked for i.d. here, it just looks like a mistake. that's they're national border and people are just walking through. they don't know if they have any papers, no nothing just because they don't want a confrontation there. but they are going to wind up with one in northern mexico, right? >> yeah. there is a guy just rode his
3:06 am
bike in here. unbelievable development this morning, guys, because it is going to raise extremely large questions for president obrador the new mexican president inaugurated in december who had vowed that they were going to not let this caravan come in illegally but, yet, would have to go through the process. they seem to be changing. we won't stop you, if you want a temporary visa for one year to work. you are going to have to apply and you could stop and go to the office and do so, but, as you can see, almost all of these immigrants are come in and police officers. no one is at the border. at that port of entry. >> steve: there goes another bike. lights coming up down in mexico. more in a little bit. brian: i imagine there is going to be stern calls between state departments. steve: what are you doing down there. the one man griff talked to
3:07 am
that spoke english i'm for open borders. no kidding. meanwhile, let's talk about the lead story of the day. a friend of mine called me yesterday and he was laughing and he said did you see what the president just did to nancy pelosi? and it's on the cover of the "new york post" this morning. nancy, you are grounded. remember just a day after nancy pelosi postponed the president's appearance before the joint session of congress, also known as the state of the union, the president turned around and said hey, you're supposed to fly to afghanistan on one of the planes and i'm commander-in-chief, and you're grounded. ainsley: he found out that she was supposed to take off around 3:00 and he found out that day and he said no, you are not taking off. you need to be here and start negotiating for the american people and not be on your p.r. trip. here is a portion of that letter that he wrote tore had. in light of the 800,000 great american workers not receiving pay, i am sure you would agree that postpones this public relations event is totally appropriate. i also feel that during this period it would be better if you were in washington negotiating with me and joining the strong border security movement to end the
3:08 am
shutdown. brian: all of a sudden the woman that said i'm worried about the president's security at the state of the union you better not show up so we are going to postpone it from now can you drop it off or do it from the oval office if you want. there was not a word from the president. 24 hours people saying what's going on here? while saluting speaker pelosi? now all of a sudden when she gets stopped from going to egypt, brussels and afghanistan although they deny they were going to stop in egypt, they said all of a sudden people have different responses to both acts. both acts are both to send a message. one to the state of the union, one is you better not go. listen to how the media characterized, for example, nancy pelosi and after she made that move against the president of the united states. that was yesterday. listen. >> speaker pelosi playing hard ball. >> she is playing hard ball. >> speaker pelosi flexing her constitutional muscle. >> nancy pelosi flexing her muscles today. >> this bold power play by
3:09 am
speaker pelosi. >> she has a ph.d. in needling president trump. >> this is a move of exceptional clevernes clevernes. >> political genius. >> showing she is in charge. >> what a bad ass. ainsley: all she said is you need to delay or do it in writing. she is saying no. you already invited me or i will go to the senate. there is another option. steve: when they viewed her saying to the president don't come to the state of the union, clearly a political move. however, when the president turned it around, didn't really think he was going to sit there, did you? suddenly he is being a nitwit. watch. >> the president has responded in sort of a childish way is the only way to describe it to the house speaker nancy pelosi. sort of a classic example of trump kind of overreacting. >> what trump has just done is tactically inept, strategically nitwitted. >> only phrase that comes to mind is nanny nanny boo boo.
3:10 am
>> nobody has ever traveled with a congressional delegates would think this is funny or appropriate or cool. brian: this is amazing. you had an act of political jujitsu totally reversed the momentum she had and it blue up in her face and now she has to go back to work and end the shutdown instead of going or sending a delegates to puerto rico or going out to hawaii. steve: her office still has not said she was denying the president an invitation to the state of the union; however, they have to issue a joint resolution of congress and the senate so president do it at the white house. chad pergram in our notes. apparently there was a stir in the democratic caucus when they started talking about the super bowl. that's a national security event. it's going to be february the 3rd in atlanta. one lawmaker told fox canceling the super bowl would lead to the end of the government shutdown. that's interesting because
3:11 am
it is a national security event. the tsa is at the airport. they are around the super bowl. they have that ring of steel that that we have seen a number of times. what if that were to happen? apparently the democrats were worried about it yesterday they were talking about it in their caucus. do they know something that we don't know? we don't know. brian: they are already working without pay. and homeland security secretary would be in charge of that tsa. she would have to be in on the i can't secure the super bowl act. so, i can't imagine the democrats having the power or the nerve to do something like that. steve: if they can't secure the state of the union, how can they secure something with 75,000 people downtown atlanta? brian: right. we know they could. ainsley: do you think they should cancel the super bowl and do you think if they did that it would end the government shutdown. friends@foxnews.com. let's hand it over to jillian who has headlines for us. jillian: that will be interesting to see how that plays out. steve: right? jillian: we do have a fox news alert to get to.

stoof steve a brand new pew research study shows america has never been more sharply divided over the border wall. according to the survey 88% of the border wall's opponents say it would not be acceptable to pass a bill that includes border wall funding while 72% of wall supporters say a bill without funding to end the shutdown would be unacceptable. we are in gridlock stage.
3:18 am
joining us right now to discuss is opinion editor and columnist for the "washington times" and fox news contributor charlie hurt. charlie, both sides think they are winning right now. nancy pelosi got the job because her caucus wanted to make sure she would not i-she would stand up to the president and resist things like the wall. how could she possibly turn around now? >> yeah, for her, it's an impossible situation. but, if you go back and nancy pelosi is not one of these people, but if you go back 10 years, you know, the majority of her party had no problem with a physical barrier, border security. it's only in the ear wrath trump that this notion of a wall, a physical barrier, a fence has become such a political issue. the big reason, of course, is the democrats discovered it's a political issue among their base. they are pressing absolutely as far as they can and i would argue to the detriment of, you know, of american
3:19 am
security. steve: over on the big screen we think who thinks this is a serious problem. 79% of democrats say the shutdown is serious. 39% of republicans say the shutdown is a very serious problem. but here's the thing. i saw nancy pelosi yesterday at the gaggle, the press gal, and she said, look, i'm negotiating. she is not negotiating. she made it very clear. the wall is immoral. she is going to give $1 for it. that's it. the president, we both heard, that he is willing to negotiate. he has told his people i will take anything in the twos. >> yeah. of course if you talk to democrats. you find out that the majority of them would like to see some sort of negotiation. you saw steny hoyer on with bret baier the other night. and he said that absolutely the wall -- a wall is not immoral. to me, that was a signal that he representing a sort of more sensible sort of wing of the democratic party would be far more interested in trying to figure out some way forward if they could come up with it. steve: sure. >> when you dig into these
3:20 am
polls, what you find the largest majority in any poll that you see today is the majority that says they have not been affected by the shutdown. steve: 82% according to the abc poll. one more poll for you, charlie. a latino approval rating with president trump apparently has gone up 19 points since the shutdown. and the president is now at 50% approval with latino voters. what's going on with that? >> that's why this is an issue. when you step back and look at the big picture. this is an issue that is very good for president trump. it's not a base issue as everybody keeps talking about. even among democrats. border security, fixing the border, making something that prevents illegal immigration is a winner not only among republicans, but among democrats and even among hispanics. steve: it doesn't sound like the president is going to budge today. >> no. steve: he is winning, he thinks, then again so did nancy pelosi. charlie hurt, thank you very much. >> thanks, steve. steve: 6:20 now here in new

3:26 am
was a direct threat to yaf. hey yaf get security. to say me that was pretty threatening. after i thought about it for a while, i realize are just the type of scare tactics that liberals and leftists you on campus to try to see you lens us. after i got over of my initial shock, i took the correct course of action. and continued on with the event to show that we were not intimidated by them and that our voice is not going to be suppressed on campus. ainsley: how did it end out working out last night, amy, i know that ben spoke there. >>it was incredible event. we didn't have too many problems. this is usually what happens on campus. they use these bullying scare tactics. they use their words. but, at least at g.w. there is usually not too much walk to their talk. ainsley: you said not too many problems. what were the problems? >> we had some people getting rowdy in line. there wasn't anything too bad. we did have security. we had extra security because of those threats. but, like i said, g.w. is
3:27 am
not too much walk to their talk. there is a lot of harassment online, a lot of threat on posters and things like that. luckily, there wasn't too much issues last night. brian: amy, let me ask you something. g.w. one of the most respected schools in the country, do you feel as though there is a greater presence than one might think of conservative students on campuses like yours? >> i think we're certainly still a minority, which is why we need to be bold when we have speakers and event on campus. you know, we are very prone to things like property destruction, all the leftists on campus are usually -- they see us doing an event and go nuts and destroy what we are doing, they destroy our displays, our posters, so, while we are a minority, we are a growing group on campus, but we still need to be bold in what we are doing because we will be a minority, i think, forever, especially at g.w. ainsley: would you ever do this to a liberal that came to speak at your school a different organization? and if you, what would be
3:28 am
the backlash? >> absolutely not. i would never do that no one in my organization would ever do that we have the utmost respect for everybody to speak at g.w. we are used to seeing liberal speakers at g.w. every other week we have bernie sanders and michelle obama. joe biden, all types of people coming to campus because that's the way g.w. runs. they don't like continue to variety conservative speakers. no one in my organization, nor i, would ever do that. if we did do that i can be sure that there would be backlash by the administration, which is not the same response that we get when liberals do this to us. brian: student experience put this statement out. i believe in the value of free speech. respectful dialogue and civility. g.w.p.d. does not see threat and be at the event and respects the students' to bring ben shapiro. i'm grateful for the freedom of choice. i'm wondering, amy, how many more conservative students would be out there if they didn't know they would get so much backlash for doing it? >> i'm sure we have a lot more people coming out if
3:29 am
they weren't scared to come out to conservative event. i mean, i have been told by some of my peers, i'm the first conservative they have ever met. i have had people tell me they admire me being the co-president of yaf and honest about my opinions. i know a lot of people on my campus and other college campuses want to speak out and be bold in their conservative beliefs but are scared of the backlash by piers, professors and administration. ainsley: amy, keep pressing on. both sides need to be told. we asked you why they were doing this at the beginning of the segment. you said it was to see you lens republicans or conservatives. you continue to press on and don't win and voice heard. thank you. >> thank you for having me. brian: back to school. 31 pins before the top of the hour. democratic congresswoman evoking allah. she doesn't know why anyone would be upset. >> my tweet was just an opinion. i don't know how my comments would be offensive to jewish

3:37 am
ainsley: it's amazing that someone who says something like that that's so offensive gets elected. how do you think that happened? >> well, i think, like most politicians, may have been certain things said in the course of the campaign to reassure jewish voters and reassure other supporters of israel and once they got the microphone and elected, we're hearing a totally different narrative. we need speaker pelosi to basically put them in their place. brian: yeah. it's the american policy. so you are allowed to have an opinion but it should be backed up by something. she went on to say i was just talking about the way israel was acting during the war in gaza. so, i don't think that clarifies anything. she also had disparaging things to say about senator lindsey graham not based on any fact. she said he was compromised because he is siding with the president on many issues. you can't just throw things like that out. thanks, rabbi, i appreciate you joining us today.

3:39 am
gates lock broken or open. 500 to 1,000 migrants walked freely into mexico without being stopped at all. we asked one of the officials, mexican immigration official that our fixer spoke to off camera that said they didn't, quote, want to confront the migrants. wanted them to feel welcome here. and he would not comment on whether or not mexican officials had left that gate open. migrants somehow in the middle of the night broken it that gate into the streets of hidalgo are actually locked now at this moment, as you see there isn't any foot traffic say for this little scooter or go going by me because that group has already entered. we are told that there is another group. remember, there are multiple caravans coming up through gwatney maguatemalayesterday. told another group going to start coming across in the next hour or so. we will see how that handle. one thing for sure quickly want to show you, these
3:40 am
border patrol guys working this gate right here. we went and asked them. our fixer asked them what they're planning to do they said we have no idea. they don't even know if there is mexico qana police here it appears that somebody in mexico is watches. for right now it is a stark contrast for the situation we saw last october where at this very spot i'm standing was the scene of tremendous violence when the caravan forced think way into mexico that was the first caravan. steve: what a mess, half an hour ago it was come on, in next thing you know oh, woe left the gate open? that's how mexico runs? ainsley: lights are out. some people are working. they work like 9 to 5? what in the world? has the mexican government talked to you about this? griff: we are waiting for an official to come down and go on camera with us. here comes. [speaking spanish] look back this way as they
3:41 am
come in, this tent that they're setting up. we don't know what that is. this is a very important point, guys. if you remember that tall fence, which was the really flash point for the confrontation and the violence, that fence is actually on the bridge. another 50 to 100 yards that direction. so, clearly, while that one gate where we entered is now locked and was open. they are also making it very welcome. there is no show of force. i haven't seen a single federal mexican police officer since i have been here standing on the border crossing. steve: unbelievable images as we see people streaming by. there goes another one right behind you. griff, thank you very much. sun is coming up. let's see if things change. ainsley: thank you, griff. ainsley: let's start with a story people are talking about right now. this is the update. giuliani now responding to a late night trump russia report from buzzfeed

4:04 am
workers. this is the bridge at 4:15 a.m. i crossed with a thousand migranting guatemala side that direction across this bridge where back in october we saw the confrontation along this bridge with thousands of migrants. we walked with this group all the way across through this entry, this portal a gate was wide open. no locks on it whatsoever and all walked onto the streets of mexico. i believe we have the photos. you can see i took a before and after photo. our producer chris got the gates open and then closed so you can see how a thousand caravan migrants from honduras guatemala and he will el salvador not a single officer standing in heir way. still to this hour we do not have any mexican police or immigration officials trying to enforce any sort of bridge security. we did talk off camera to an
4:05 am
official that told us that they just wanted to, quote: not confront the migrants. they wanted them to feel welcomed and not threatened very big contrast to what we saw in october from today. particularly with the message all along from the mexican government, the new administration was they are going to be forceful on illegal crossings. they said they were posting federal police and 12 ports of entry along the mexico guatemala border and somewhere all along the 370 illegal crossings that they know of. here's the deal. if the ground zero main one you see people riding a bike past me going in it's wide open there is a lock. so the people coming across now are going to have to cue up to the mexican officials. but right now there is a thousand migrants that freely walked into mexico earlier this hour. we don't know whether they were let in freely or whether migrants broke that lock. steve: good question. griff, out of curiosity, you
4:06 am
see the gate there with the lock. how far does the wall extend? 20 feet? 20 miles? easy to impede they can go around it? griff: great question. it's just that one gate. and it's building in part of ciudad hilhidalgo we witnessed a handful of migrants arriving late climbing over that fence and going around and still going. in there was no police presence there. i'm very aggressively trying to seek an official comment from mexican officials here as to whether they intentionally opened that gate other whether migrants broke it. same result very little if nothing was done to stop them from coming. in do the numbers game. we know there are 1,000 more migrants coming from el salvador and another one from honduras on its way. we will find out this morning, perhaps later this
4:07 am
weekend how they will be dealt with one thing for sure no show of force on this bridge. brian: shutdown. sleeping. they have got to wake up. attention, guys, lock the door when you go to bed and open it up the next day in the middle of the night people are going to walk. in meanwhile we talked about another sector of our southern border and that's arizona. the huma sector. one thing that they have been noticing at the border is there is an araise of people from different countries beginning to stream in at record pace. a lot has to do with the word that we are dealing with a dead lock right now in congress they are seeing the video and starting to come to our border in greater numbers. ainsley: campos a border agent brian interviewed him earlier he said the whole world is watching and taking notes. watch. >>s other country around the world see our country's immigration they will continue to try to exploit our weakness. come into the country

4:10 am
you are going on a trip tomorrow on my plane, i don't think so. i think we should focus on a shutdown. some people here who are don't have a job or don't have paycheck. that is the ultimate show of turn around. doesn't get us further in the negotiation. ainsley: president said you need to be here and negotiate instead of on a pr trip. democrats are saying this is retaliation because she wanted to postpone the state of the union. steve: she had a press gaggle and she made it very clear she is not for a wall. and the president is for a wall. and that is the problem. these are the two leaders of the two parties and they are nowhere near each other. here is charlie hurt. listen to this. >> nancy pelosi is not one of these people, if you go back 10 years the majority of her party have no problem with border security. it's only in the ear wrath trump that this notion of a wall, a physical barrier, a fence has become such a
4:11 am
political issue. border security, fixing the border making something that prevents illegal immigration is a winner not only among republicans but among democrats and even among hispanics. steve: of course, it's a loser for the people not getting paid right now. they will eventually be paid, keep in mind. guess how many, according to the latest figures, how many of the federal employees have asked for -- have filed for unemployment insurance? ainsley: how many? steve: out of the 800,000 according to axios this morning 10,000 for the week ending january 5th. apparently some are hesitant to apply because according to axios they have to pay back the money when they go back to work. brian: what a hassle. jillian mele is here. jillian: good friday morning to you. responding to a late night trump russia report from buzzfeed. the news site reporting that

pete: yep. brian: she came in and was really called out on cnn by one of her past tweets. here is one of them israel hypnotized the world. may allah awaken the people and see the evil doings of israel. this is in 2012 when israel was bombing gaza because they were in a clash at the border. number one she won election. number two are you satisfied with her answer? pete: part of the indefensible part of what she said is what she went on cnn and said. this is her attempt to try to defend it. watch. >> my tweet was just an opinion based on what i believed to be visible to me and i'm pretty sure there are lots of americans who agree on this. oh, that's really regrettable way of expressing that i don't know how my comments would be offensive to jewish americans. my comments precisely are addressing what was
4:39 am
happening during the gaza war. and i am clearly speaking about the way that the israeli regime was conducting itself in that war. steve: i wonder how many people of minnesota actually knew that she had said that back in 2012. pete: that didn't get much publicity. the israeli regime, you mean the duly elected group? fighting in gaza. this is the muslim brotherhood a declared terrorist organization seeks to wipe israel off the map. she said -- hamas, excuse me. hamas didn't know her comments would be offensive to jewish americans. may allah awaken the people to the evil doings of israel. i mean, who does she point to as evil in this situation? is it hamas or is it israel? she sits on the house foreign relations committee. steve: that's what i was going to say, nancy pelosi just installed her on the house foreign relations committee. leader mccarthy on the minority side, the republican from california said i am very disappointed
4:40 am
in speaker pelosi's choice. pete: she needs to be asked whether she condemns hamas. she is saying hamas is the good guys and israel is the bad guys effectively. she is now that position of power elected by the people of minneapolis. she came from keith ellison old seat so no surprise there. but, there is a lot of big questions there. she should be pressed even harder. ainsley: are you ready saturday morning four hours. >> joni ernst, ed henry and katie pavlich with me this weekend. we will try to eat a huge hamburger oh, it's fake. impossible. ainsley: impossible to eat a fake hamburger. steve: are you listening to the voice. pete: trying to relay it and not doing a good job. brian: jillian if you wonder why he is dressed like this he is dressed for gutfeld. pete: this is gutfeld attire. steve: dressed for the snow outside. jillian: is it a conveniently j burger? peter: better not be. steve: stay tuned tomorrow

4:56 am
afghanistan. i was there when stanley mcchrystal came through on the famous rolling stone tour. that's someone who had commands over the reason and actually had decision-making power. let me tell you in 18 years of congress persons taking these trips, nothing has changed. they haven't declared war. they have basically rubber stamped the ndaa to keep these things funded because it's the ultimate pork bill anyway. and so congress isn't there -- relieving their responsibility to the president there on presidential authority. i don't know what the speaker of the house going there two weeks into the job is going to do for those men and women overseas. steve: real quick exit question. who is winning this fight? >> i don't think anyone is winning. we are all losing this fight. i think that it's increasingly obvious it's a political fight. if you look at the two. the only argument there that could be winning is a wall might actually make us safer. but, at the end of the day, this is a fight over politics. this is a fight over who can win for political purposes and it doesn't do anything for our country at all. steve: joey jones joining us

southern border. those cities get overrun because we're not letting them in. steve: could be a miscommunication. the gate was wide open. is that standard operating procedure out there. an hour into griff's live reporting from mexico, guatemalan border, suddenly the border gate is locked again. brian: i thought you were going to lock the gate? you mean i was supposed to lock the gate? that could be the miscommunication. looks like the chain-link fence, the chain-link fence like a lock you used to lock up your scwinn with. that is what they used to keep the caravan out of. steve: as griff pointed out, it is pretty much a gate across the road. you go 50 feet out around past the buildings, you know what? you're in mexico. ainsley: i think that is why they're continuously trying it. some people get through. some people they don't. that is what they feel down there. brian: very dramatic as we move

5:07 am
they created the circus. brian: yeah. steve: better depiction how the angel families feel, why won't democrats talk to us? brian: it is incredible. meanwhile, the big story on, was it, it was wednesday when the state of the union, the letter about the state of the union address essentially rescinding the president of the united states giving the state of the union address. people were stunned. nancy pelosi decided to let the president know knot a really good idea for you to give state of the union address. so many people are furloughed, we are not sure we can security the place. listen how the media saw the political move. >> speaker pelosi playing hardball. >> speaker pelosi flexing her constitutional muscle. >> bold power play in. >> she has a degree in needling president trump. >> this is cleverness around
5:08 am
saidism in a way. >> this is political genius. >> she is showing she is in charge. >> what a bad ass. steve: they love the fact she was doing this to donald trump. so many people equated what she did, where he did essentially took away the keys to the airplane flying over to afghanistan and other places. watch the contrast. when nancy pelosi did it, clever, genius. now when donald trump does something like that, it is childish and he is a nitwit. watch. >> the president has responded in sort of a childish way. only way to describe it. to the house speaker nancy pelosi. >> this is a sort of a classic example of trump kind of overreacting. >> what trump has done is tactically inept, strategically nitwitted. >> only phrase that comes to mind is nanny, nanny boo-boo. >> nobody ever traveled to congressional delegation would think this is funny or appropriate or cool. brian: doesn't matter if it is
5:09 am
funny, appropriate or cool. you have a shutdown. she was playing games. he turned it around right on her. ainsley: a lot of people think it is appropriate. a lot of people do think it is appropriate. they think it inappropriate for congress to go to puerto rico on vacation or appropriate for her to go every. it is wonderful they would see the troop, she needs to get something done because some people are out of work. steve: the president is standing firm. he wants 5.6, 7, orbillion dollars for the wall. she is saying no. it is not about the money. it is about the wall. you know, because if she does not want in her first month as speaker to give him a win, so she is dug in. and he is dug in. and as world looks in, there is extraordinary poll just come out among latino voters. and the president's latino voter, his approval rating has gone up 19% since the shutdown, according to the npr, pbrmaris
5:10 am
poll. brian: byron york pointed out the tough on border, school of thought prior to donald trump talk about the southern border, you're in danger of losing hispanic support. that fell on its face, because president of the united states got more hispanic supporters than mitt romney did. number two, seems to be surging here. people understand has nothing to do where you're from. it has to do with our security. nothing against any country or any race of people. byron york points out, the reason why nancy pelosi is not budging, the overall polls show the democrats are winning this. ainsley: in december, the latino support was 31%. yesterday, the latino support was 50%. steve: also asked, which comes closer to your point of view. 63% said that elected officials should make compromises and 31% say stick to their positions. it would be interesting if "the washington post" abc come
5:11 am
out with another poll last week when they came out with the poll showed 82% of americans had not been impacted at all by the government shut down. is that a different number this week? don't know. ainsley: a lot of people go to the polls stick to whatever the positions are, whatever the promises are. when there is stalemate, they can't come to a decision and the democrats say one thing and republicans say another, then i think most americans with want to you compromise. brian: you cannot stick to your position and get something done. the way our government is the is up, that is why the 63% say compromise. ainsley: give-and-take. brian: no one will get a complete victory out of this. as soon as they realize that we can stop this little game. steve: nancy pelosi not going to afghanistan. we don't know about the state of the union. could be in senate. that was rand paul's. or the white house. we'll know next week. brian: davos is off. neither is great britain because of brexit. i don't know who will go to
5:12 am
davos. ainsley: nancy pelosi don't go on a trip, my administration is not going to davos either. not appropriate. brian: toss it over to jillian. jillian: no, you're good. we have serious news. three of the four americans killed in a targeted isis attack in syria have been identified. army special forces solder jonathan farmer of florida, served on six overseas combat tours. the green beret was married with four children. also among the dead is navy chief technician, shannon tent of upstate new york and dod civilian scott worth of missouri. they were killed by an isis suicide bomber. a fourth american victim working as an interpreter has not been identified. rudy giuliani responding to a late night russia report from buzzfeed. they were reporting that president trump personally directed michael cohen to lie to congress about negotiations to build a trump to youer in moscow. the president's attorney

5:19 am
willing to make any counter offer. she refused to offer anything on the table. time for that to end, she has to start negotiating or release everybody and let someone else negotiate for her since she is unable to at least show any willingness. brian: yesterday before the whole event happened, there was a question in the press conference, do you need to express willingness to negotiate that figure for republicans to get past this idea of a wall? she says i'm not for a wall, i'm not for a wall, i'm not for a wall, then she laughed. we're not talking about a wall, steel barrier. steel slats, or fencing. should she be asked directly, the wall is not vernacular is not used and everybody move forward and everybody save face? >> she should. when we were in the meetings in the situation room over the last few weeks where the president brought all of us together to try to negotiate, he said he is willing to negotiate on even the definition of a wall. she can ban physical cement

okay. finally $8,000, how much it costs to you buy a liter of blood from a young person. a california startup says it reverses aging. the blood is taken between people from 15 to 25 years old. ainsley? ainsley: thank you. google executive reportedly sparking outrage among employees for simply using the word family during a company presentation on a product that is geared for children. steve: one employee allegedly writing this is diminishing disrespectful way to speak. family friendly, used as synonym for kid-friendly means to me, you and yours don't count as a family unless you have children. it is offensive, inappropriate, homophobic and wrong. they wrote. ainsley: "the daily caller" white house correspondent joins us now with this. am berks thanks for being with us. >> good morning. thank you for having me i don't a reportwer "daily caller," peter hasse-m broke the story.
5:26 am
appeared in 2017. tell us exactly what the story is here. >> right. so turns out google employees are members of the perpetually aggrieved class offended by literally everything. upset the word family was used. called it homophobic. it wasn't friendly for people who don't have children who are even people who are not married. these sound a lot like college students who we talk about are always offended by anything they can be offended by. this is the not first time google employees brought their politics to work with them. google employees in the past discussed potentially pushing down conservative websites and search results trying to use the search algorithm to hide trump's travel ban. this is just more of the same for them. steve: amber, is this comment and outlyer or do a lot of people at google feel that way? that using family is over the line? >> you would think that it would be maybe one to half a dozen
5:27 am
people. there were actually close to 100 people who complained about the word family. it is really insane to me, that this is something that can be taken as offensive in today's society. it really calls into question what kind of values that we're promoting our children and to, to the young people in society and members of my generation, the millenials. ainsley: what they want, these folks complaining, i think of movies are family-friendly, meaning kid or people of all ages can see the movie. don't have to worry about your kids seeing something you will regret showing them later on. instead of calling those movies family friendly, we're supposed to call them kid-friendly movies now? >> apparently so. if you say family, you're at risk of offending someone. james demore, google needs to add intellectual diversity to its ranks. conservatives are worried about censorship. when people like this running a company that is one the biggest
5:28 am
tech companies in charge after lot of people's ability to speak freely. >> we have a quote from vice president of google on family backlash. i realize what we have said might have caused concerns. we need to be more conscientious about the fact that there is a diverse makeup of parents and families. please help us get to a better state. so ultimately, amber, what does this, why does this concern you when it comes to these kind of attitude inside of google which of course runs this secret algorithm which ha half the planet uses to find stuff on the internet? >> well the problem with their response is that, they gave in to the outrage mob, which tells me if an employee has a problem with a certain conservative speaker or certain conservative news story like i was mentioning about the trump travel ban, then, of course fearful that they would try to use their power to censor people's views that they disagree with. ainsley: it is just so interesting. i think family could have more than one meaning, right? family friendly could mean kids
5:29 am
or family could mean your extended family. doesn't necessarily mean you have to have children? >> that is exactly right. and i think what is happening here, is people who are maybe a little bit sad, maybe they're upset they're single, and so they took out their own insecurities on googlesque istives, rather than choosing to not be offended by something. ainsley: when does all this end? what is next? in 2017 they are offended by that word. what are they offended by now? >> that is the question i'm asking myself, especially i look on college campuses people are supposed to be the future leaders of america, calling the police on people who write trump 2016 in chalk on their campuses. no telling where this outrage culture is going to end. i think it is shame on google executives for giving in to this kind of nonsense. steve: amber athey from "the daily caller." thank you. >> thank you. steve: rudy giuliani the

5:34 am
i don't believe any talks are on tap. let's bring in newt gingrich. he was speaker of the house of the he knows all about shut downs, experienced one when he was speaker. how does this end? he is author of trump's america. before we talk about shutdown, this buzzfeed story is getting a lot of buzz, pun intended, about michael cohen, claiming reportedly, that michael cohen claiming as president's attorney he was instructed to lie to congress after the president became president about the moscow tower project. what is your reaction to that? ainsley: this is according to buzzfeed, by the way. >> i agree with rudy giuliani. anybody who believes michael cohen, rudy would like to meet with you, offer a chance to buy the brooklyn bridge. this is absurdity. the niece -- news media take any negative about trump because it fits their bias and.
5:35 am
can you imagine any president of the united states being dumb enough to say i would like you to go over to lie to congress? it is crazy. only modern liberal media would give it any credit. brian: we'll find outlaw enforcement officials say. two law enforcement officials can verify. there are text messages and email that would change it if it that was true. >> text messages from who? brian: law enforcement people. >> from trump or is it cohen being wildly delusional? steve: newt, when you look this is from buzzfeed. buzzfeed, let's hop in the way back machine, buzzfeed who is actually published unverified dossier in its entirety, i believe. >> sure. but that is what buzzfeed does. buzzfeed is the equivalent of those tabloids you buy at the grocery store on the way out that introduce you to martians and tell you the story of three stars who anguished lives that you never knew about.
5:36 am
to take buzzfeed seriously -- steve: i have to read about that. >> to take buzzfeed seriously a sign how desperate we are for news. ainsley: you're not denying, you don't doubt michael cohen said this to these investigators, but whether or not is true, is what you're doubting, right? >> michael cohen was interviewed for 70 hours. in 70 hours time he could have said anything. because he was trying to please the investigators. he was desperately trying to avoid jail. i think he would have said, if you told him the sky is orange, and the earth is purple, he would have said yes, sir, that is exactly right. i always thought that myself. brian: if there is paperwork to back up what he said and other sources to back up what he says what is the degree of trouble the president would be in? >> look, what you just did. you have me talking about hypothetical whether or not the president might be in trouble if a nut cake who is routinely lying might have in fact -- what kind of paperwork?
5:37 am
paperwork from trump or paperwork from cohen? paperwork from cohen is as useless as cohen's own words. brian: steve: what is interesting about the story. buzzfeed hanging it on two unnamed law enforcement personnel. apparently the reporter never actually saw with his own two eyes, according to what he told another network this morning, never saw the material himself. taking it on, whoever he talked to as yep, i'm telling you truth, buddy, this is it. >> i don't blame buzzfeed. "new york times" does this all the time. "new york times" had a story last week about trump was a russian agent. huge headline. they get to paragraph 9, actually no factual evidence of any kind this is true. but they managed to get a big headline, a long story. all of it from unnamed fbi sources. so if "the new york times" can take trivia and trash and turn it into a page one story why can't buzzfeed.
5:38 am
>> steve: if the fbi would ever do that. brian: newt, yesterday was one of the great political jujitsu moves i've ever seen, president two days ago, caught by surprise perhaps, went silent, disinvited to give the state of the union address. the president didn't respond. when he got word according to the white house they were about to take off on military aircraft, what they thought was egypt, brussels and then afghanistan, he immediately turned the bus around and stopped the plane and said come back and negotiate. first characterize where this fits in the history of this country? >> well, look, we have never seen the level of hostility between the speaker of the house and a president, that we have with nancy pelosi and president trump. nancy pelosi has gone out of her way to prove that she is his mortal enemy. that if she can destroy his presidency she will. she, when he said the other day, if i give you everything you want, would you at least agree
5:39 am
over the next 30 days, that we could solve the wall on southern border? she said no. you can give me everything i want i'm still not giving you anything. then she decides upon her own, by the way, i dare her to put this up to a vote of the house because i think her own party will repudiate her, she decides she will postpone the state of the union, which thinks she shows she is tough. you want tough? i will give tough. you are not flying on military airplane. i also think he had a good point. why is she leaving the u.s. for seven days while federal employees are not being paid? why is she not sitting in washington getting her job done, finding a compromise? i thought from the president's side, it was a home run for him to do the what he did and send her a note, of course you can go commercial, frankly you ought to stay here and negotiate. ainsley: do you think he was doing that out of retaliation? his trip to davos or his administration's trip to davos he canceled. >> come on.
5:40 am
come on. ainsley: is it retaliation or a little bit of both? >> i have written two books about trump. i known him a long time. i watched him carefully. i don't know anymore predictable at counterpunching. you hit donald trump, he picks up a large log, slams you across the head, see you made me irritated. she punched him. he was looking for opportunity to punch her back. i think, from everything, in fact i was watching your show earlier today. we had a woman on saying i was so proud of him canceling her plane, she handed him a huge softball, said, please, knock it out of the park. steve: when you were speaker would you have ever suggested to bill clinton, hey, don't do, let's postpone the state of the union because, this just isn't going right? the government is shut down. can't protect you? >> look even in the worst period with, which included whole impeachment process he and i could always talk. we're both sort of graduate students. we like policy.
5:41 am
we like idea. we babble. we babbled with each other. so even when we were fighting we were talking. nancy pelosi is not like that. nancy pelosi is a very tough machined politician. she has no interest in having a friendly conversation with donald trump. and, trump's the guy, he is very happy to talk to you. you want to pick a fight with him? i guarranty you he will spend part of every day here on out finding a way to cause her pain. brian: she is operator. she is not a deep thinker. >> but, people shouldn't underestimate her. she is very effective, very tough operator. the president will have to break her power in order to win. brian: we'll see what happens. we're in a standoff. ainsley: newt gingrich. thank you so much. have a good weekend. brian: no one can break jillian's power and her hold on the news. jillian: absolutely. got that right. an american teenager accused of attacking a sheriff's deputy in the name of isis. he is charged with terrorism. officials say the 18-year-old

5:47 am
cued up to get a temporary work visa up to a year in mexico. but for the majority of the folks, of the caravan they want to go to the united states. 4:15 a.m., we came across this bridge with 1000 plus migrants. as we came across we saw not a single federal police officer, not a single immigration official. they walked down to the gate you're looking at now. the gate has a lock on it. early this morning it was wide open. it leads to the streets of hidalgo, here is self if i video i shout to capture that moment for you. watch. the red lights behind me are the checkpoint on the tecum bridge between guatemala and mexico. these migrants being able, this gentleman waving hi, walking across. immigration officials not stopping any of these migrants. so as you can see now the situation differs.
5:48 am
people cannot freely walk across. as we came across the bridge 20 minutes ago, we saw people crossing the river freely, no one stopping them. so a clear, stark contrast from what we saw four months ago when there was violence and tear gas. when mexico was trying to stop central american caravan from coming across. this administration taking a very different approach to them. the one immigration officer we saw by the way this morning wouldn't talk to us on camera. he said what is going on here? quote, we don't want to confront the caravan. we want the migrants to feel welcome, guys. steve: when you look at video what happened october 19th. now you look what is going on. when you went from guatemala into mexico, anybody ask you for papers or anything? reporter: no. after i have been out here last few hours for reporting, we got dragged across to guatemala, to do a little passport checking in
5:49 am
with them we were technically illegal here in mexico. put a fine point quickly what this all means to this conversation, my contacts in the rio grande valley, the busiest traffic sector in the u.s.-mexico border, are emailing me today, hey, griff, watching reporting. by the way we had nearly 1000 arrests in the rgv sector yesterday alone. i walked across with 1000 caravan migrants this morning who are free to walk now, 2,000 miles to the u.s. border. ainsley: so the reason you're saying it is easier to get across today, i thought it would be harder as more and more migrants were trying to travel and get into mexico, but the reason it is easier because they wanted to no confrontation? they wanted to make it easy for them to get through? reporter: exactly. this is a very different message, ainsley, than what the new president lopez obrador was saying a few months and weeks ago. president trump, secretary
5:50 am
pompeo was sent down to mexico before all this began, listen, we will try to help to give aid, to do what the mexican president wanted a new deal to give jobs, some aid to the countries, stop caravans coming from the first place, so their lives would be better in exchange for mexico hardening the southern border. they have done exactly the opposite because you see behind me, people are getting work visas. the bigger point, which was immigrants coming freely across not being stopped at all. i have not yet seen a single federal mexican police officer here enforcing any security to include the locked gate down there, guys. steve: what a week of reporting from down there in central america. griff, thank you very much. ainsley: is that what nancy pelosi and chuck schumer want our border to look like? steve: according to the president yesterday, yes 15 minutes to top of the hour. what is the new year's resolution to get organized? skip bedell has everything to
