[bleep] [bleep] [bleep] ♪ panama. there's no better way to kick off jed's one-year wedding anniversary than rocking 0 it a little van halen. i know this song. i didn't know they were saying panama. animal, that's what i thought. >> animal? >> this is the david lee roth heyday. a child of the '80s, van halen. i may or may not have had a lot of van halen posters in my bedroom. >> animal. i always do that. i think i know the song and i'm
sipping it and my husband is like, those are all the wopping words. >> e-mail us. what song did you think said one thing your quhoal lif your wheen you grow up and find out it says something different. the jesse smollett case, griff you should break it down for us. >> for our viewers just walking up, the jesse smollett case, a great actor on the "empire" show if you watch that. this began at the end of january when smollett claims he was attacked by two men using racial slur, doused him in bleach, put a noose around his neck. well police were investigating it. now they took two nigerian men into custody, one of which may have had a part in that show as an extra in the "empire" show.
they requested them, picke quesd on wednesday night. and police issued a statement that has many believing that smollett's story may be falling apart. here's the latest statement from the chicago police department. it says, we can confirm that the information received from the individuals questioned by police earlier in the "expire" case has shifted the trajectory of the investigation. we've reached out to the "empire" cast members attorney to request a follow-up attorney. smollett's attorneys put a statement out then to entertainment weekly that says as a victim of hate crime who has cooperated with the police jesse smollett is aing ire anged devastatedevastated that by thes that the perpetrators are people he know of. nothing is further from the truth. and anyone claiming otherwise is
lying. so we have a lot of new details this morning. >> i think the key to the change in this case is the police in chicago are no longer considering jesse smollett a victim. they changed him. he's not a victim. what exactly happened they don't know. the "new york post" is jumping ahead saying it's a hoax. we're getting new details that they think the nigerian men -- they have a receipt where he bought the stuff at the ace hardware. he was a victim of attack but he still had his subwa subway sand. >> we adopt know wha don't know. some in media were honorable saying hold, this is an allegation. let's let the chicago police do their job. but once again as happened with the covington situation, you have a lot of people saying that
he was telling the truth, making judgments about trump. the things being said were racist and homophobic and wer we referencing maga. when there's something about maga and trump, there's a rush from the media because they quantity to make the connection. be cautious about that. your credibility is on the line when you that. >> let me play for our viewers who may have forgotten. it was jesse's own statements that captured a lot of people's attention. >> who says [bleep] [bleep] "empire" this maga country, ties a noose around your neck and pours bleach on you. this is just a friendly fight? i will never be the man that this did not happen to. i am forever changed. and i don't subscribe to the idea that everything happens for
a reason but i do scribe to the right that we have the right and the responsibility to make something meaningful out of the things that happen to us, good and bad. >> that's a powerful recounting of a terrible situation if indeed it happened. however it is a class four felony to knowingly file a false police report. >> the chicago fox station is reporting that the two brothers, nigerian men, they told cops that the star paid them to orchestrate the attack. we don't know. it's been fishy at the beginning. a lot of people looked sideways at that, middle of the night in chicago, bleach, noose, a small scrap, you got away, kept your sandwich. and you want to to believe victims a the first. >> he doesn't turn over his phone records. he took 13 days, finally he hands them over and he hands them over redacted.
the police were saying, if we want to find these people, this won't hold up in criminal court. you need to show us the records. can we look at the network news coverage. abc news, 52 minutes, 38 seconds, cbs news 13 minutes, 47 seconds, total, 101 minutes 22 seconds on a case where we didn't know what happened yet. give it a minute. let people investigate. we have seen this with kavanaugh, covington, smollett, a rush to judgment, they put the narrative out there before they have the facts and so many people in media have to walk it back. so many people on another network made the same mistake with covington and now they have to walk it back and apologize. the best case you could at the time is to say this is what we're hearing, we don't know yet. we'll follow-up when we have more information that's what reporters do. >> in the case of covington,
there was some confusion as to how the whole conversation transpired and then the moment we all saw, the video. in this case what the splig police department puts on record, what they say about the information is going to be the deciding factor. we have not yet confirmed all of the facts that some of the chicago media is reporting. but we're going to find out. and that's going to be very telling. >> what's the common thread in all of these cases, maga, make america great again. hi think it's a violent trump supporter doing something racist. you walk it back, it's more complicated, maybe not true but the media jumps on it and creates a cultural case. >> it's democrats running for president. look at what they said, senator kamala harris right ie way called it an attempted modern day lynches, nancy pelosi an affront to our media.
so now you have high-level democrats -- these are people who are supposed to be considered credible, they're running for president many of them, and they right out of the gate feel comfortable enough to make those judgments and not be held comfortable if that information comes back and negate what they said. it's amazing. >> if you look closely, you can see the date. january 29 and january 30th is when those democrats -- see that right there? the date? they immediately reacted without giving the police the time to tell us what happened. >> cory booker said the same thing by the way, modern day lynching on january 29th or 30th. everybody take a breath. let's find out what happened. >> social media doesn't happen with that because everyone wants to the first to the story. nobody knows. give the investigation a case and when we find out the information, feel free to comment on it and then make your
opinion heard. don't lose your credibility. >> you know who's shaking in his boots right now? jesse smollett. >> we'll bring you the facts. >> his lawyer put the statement out saying nothing could be further from the truth and anyone claiming otherwise that jesse set this up is lying. here's the thing, he's on the hook possibly for a class four felony, however if he's questioned again and lies in that questioning, he's going to expose himself to other charges. >> we also have joe biden running for president calling america an embarrassment. that's a teez. tease. we'll talk about it. headlines coming to you. patrick shanahan is reviewing programs to scale back to fund the border wall. reports show he will likely
redirect 3 .6 million from the budget. president trump declared a national emergency to get the wall get. secretary snahan will hold meetings this week to determine how to pay for it. a community gathers to remember five victims shot and killed at a manufacturing plant in illinois. among those killed, a 21-year-old intern on his first day of work. the other victims have been identified. authorities say the suspect, gary martin, was about to be fired when he went on a shooting rampage. martin was a convicted felon and had the gun illegally. he died in a shoot outwith the police. senator bernie sanders on the verge of another presidential run. the independent recorded a campaign video launching a 2020 bid. it is unclear if or when the video would be released. sander would join an already crowded field of democrats running for president.

we're going to confront the national security crisis on our southern border and we're going to do it one way or the other. whether it's 8 billion or 2 billion or 1.5 billion it's going to build a lot of walls. we're getting it done. we have an invasion of guns, people and it's unacceptable. >> president trump declaring a national emergency over the border wall but a new washington
postop ed declaring there's no crisis an. joining us to react is the acting chief border patrol agent, the del rio sector, one of the most active legal crossing areas of the border. chief, thank you for joining us. i appreciate you coming on. i communicated some with you when i was covering the last caravan but i want to get your thoughts. we have this op-ed and some other evidence of the media thing that this isn't a crisis. how does that settle with you? >> well, good morning, tbrif and thankgriff,and thanks for havin. i can speak to the reality that we're dealing on our 209 miles of border in south texas. october 1st of 2016 our arrest2018, ourarrests have dou.
qurng with that is alien alienst are parent's one child and multiple, those are up 400%. when we talk about the numbers, they may be lower than what we saw in the early 20 2000s. the challenge that we deal with now, it's completely different population. rather than single adult males primarily from mexico 18 years ago, now we're dealing with family units from central america. >> we goa we got it on the scre, 304% increase. i certainly saw it. but we got some news out of mexico and for whatever reason the u.s. media doesn't want to report as much it seems. but the governor of the state which is the one that was in charge deported a handful of people confirming in an interview in mexican press that
there were multiple understand stances of ms13 gang members mix into that caravan. does that concern you? >> it certainly does, whether it's specifically ms13 or even criminal aliens in those groups. we see people like that. we see ones who have had criminal records, been in this country before and been removed. the previously removed aliens are a concern. last week we arrested somebody here crossing the border that had a prior conviction for murder and had been removed from the united states. so we know that's a concern when we're talking with any group but certainly when we talk about large groups, it's an added concern. >> let me ask you as i asked all of the chiefs and i get the pleasure and honor of working with, i say, what do you need, if you could have resource to continue to do your job better, what would you prefer to have? >> for us we have some frur along our border, within the 20. i've only got a little over four
miles of any type of fencing. so that fru infrastructure, wher it's the physical barriers, it's the patrol roads to go with it to allow our agents to move. the infrastructure and even stations in the physical facilities we need to get the job done. adding to that we need more technology. the camera systems and the technology that we have, as great as it is, there's an opportunity to increase that. and most importantly the, the most important part of the equation is the personnel. >> manpower. chief, we're almost out of time here. thank you for joining us and thank you to the men and women of the border patrol keeping our border safe. >> you're more than welcome. california firefighters saving a dog's life using cpr. this morning it's inspired us to learn how to save a pet's life. some on the left now slamming trump supporters for backing the wall. have the attacks on the right hit a new low. >> we debate coming up next.

including alaskans. >> the offer comes as some governors pull their troops from the southern border. pete? >> i must say well done. media outlets slamming president trump for declaring a national emergency. some saying the move proved he was unfit for office. but one msnbc guest took it way further than that. >> the 37 to 40% of people who believe whatever donald trump is going to say, they're gone. they're lost. they're zombies now. so we have to ou cauterize the wound and worry about the people that aren't infected yet. >> here to debate, former tucson police officer brandon tat an td antwon. ie start with you. why can't trump supporters be human? >> well they can. i would not have used the same
words perhaps as the msnbc guest, no disrespect to him were no hits on him. at the end of the day, i think what's consistent is the fact that no one will disagree with the fact that president trump supporters are very loyal. i think they drank the cool aide ancool aidand they're drunk on . i think he said if he went down the street, whatever they said during the course of the am pain, they would be with him. he has followers that are loyal to him. >> is antwon being a bit too generous? >> this is what i'll say, we're not loyal to president trump. we're loyal to america and president trump is defending america. and as long as he's defending america and doing what's right,
we'll stand by those principles. it's simple and plain. >> that's a fair point. trump supporters would say if he was doing the wrong things ultimately we wouldn't be with him. but he oo he's fight in way no e has. can you acknowledge that? >> if you look at some of the rhetoric and some of the maif your that comes from this president and you think h he's doing fsh america. >> pro-america agenda. >> that doesn't mean i agree with everything that the president does and says. and if you don't call him out for the things he does wrong or the things he say that is wrong, you and i both have a problem. >> it's not a matter of calling him out for what's wrong or right. the bottom line is this. we're talking about the emergency that he's ordered. we're talking about border security. we're talking about the things that he's been able to accomplish for america. give me an example of something that'that he's done that's
anti-american. >> some of the language he uses. >> jesse smollett, the actor who made accusations about an attack on him a number of weeks ago by maga supporters yelling racist and home foapic things. this morning we're hearing that the chicago police no longer consider him a victim. they're getting new evidence that may allege that this was not an attack at all, may be orchestrated by a couple f people he knew. brandon, your reaction? >> racism in this country is dying. people like myself are literally trying to pull the plug but the left wants to revive racism every chance you get. >> oh my goodness, brandon. >> this is a fake faux outrage paid by a man. why do you have to pay to create it? that man should be ashamed of
himself. he should be ashamed of himself for what he's doing representing his family and people on his side of the aisle. >> we don't know what happened yet. but so many people, including democratic presidential candidates jumped in right away saying this is a modern day lynching. is not that type of rhett wrik without knowinrhetoricwithout ks creating a racial lens where maybe one didn't exist? >> i will be consistent. i appreciate you having me on. let's let the facts play out and see how it plays out. if it's what others are speculating is true, it's very unfortunate. it's like the one who calls wolf. it sets a dangerous precedent and puts unwanted pressure on these situations when i come up before and it's like people will never believe you when you have these scenarios and situations. however i strongly disagree with
brandon, the fact that racism is essentially nonexistent. america's carpet has lumps in it because we swept racism up under the rug for so very long in this country and we cannot allow this to be a distraction for calling things out that are very very true. >> briefly last word, brandon. >> why do they have to recreate the scenarios. why can't the man be walking down the street and get beat up by white men. he had to pay brother to do it. i understand how the process works. when they investigating two individuals and they let them go without charging them and now they're focusing their attention on jesse smollett, he is going to be charged. end of story. this is the way it works. >> i don't disagree with you. my point is lit's let the police do their job. >> that's not what the democratic candidates were doing at the beginning. >> i can only speak for.

dryer, no washer, no color television. you can think of other e menties that we were equal in not having but we were equal in having no economic opportunities. and that's because when the state runs your lives and the economy, most people are equal in having scarcity and hopelessness and that's the future that we can look forward to. >> but the problem is that the government guarantees, guarantee of a, guarantee of economic opportunity provided by the government and not the free market, you'll have health care, you'll have everything, it's a great slogan. what do you say to people who might listen to the slogans and be drawn to them, saying yeah, democrats are looking out for me. >> all they need to do is look at history. its not even ancient history. it's recent history. it wasn't that long ago that communist china was very much
communist and it wasn't that long ago that we defeated the former soviet union. what i would say is look at a time when china was not the second largest economy in the world. even communist china did not want the economic qualit equalit it used to have. so i think what people need to do is stop decolluding themselves and actually read a little bit about history. >> socialism has become mainstream. and just quickly, what is your reaction to president trump taking this head on and in his state of the union saying america will never been a socialist country and having to face people in congress now who are unabashedly socialist and advocating for the policies? >> i think it's presiden fantast the president is doing what he's doing and saying what he is doing. i was a deputy director of a trump super pac so i supported

and an article that said asylum policies wearing down many at the border, even acknowledging that the policies of this president is deterring, and you've seen it more than most, the ability to just jump right in -- griff: that's right, we just had a border patrol official if on last hour. democrat 2020 hopefuls are leading the charge in making a political football out of this wall, and beto o'rourke is really on the front end of that. he fist, of course, told us that he would tear a wall down. listen to this. >> you know, would you, if you could, would you take the wall down now here? >> yes, absolutely. >> knock it down. >> i'd take the wall down. walls do not, as the president has lame claimed, save lives. walls end lives. pete: so that was him yesterday doubling down on the statement that he would take the wall down with a de facto acknowledgment, jedediah, he's saying walls and
lies -- which is an open statement -- saying walls are effective if your approach is to stop something from happening. no one wants to end lives, but this is where the debate's going to go. jedediah: it's the rush to the extreme. it's not going to be beto, by the way, but who makes it out of the primary and has to run in the general election adhering to these super, super, super far-left principles. it's amazing. they're going to all but can ask abdomen -- be asked about this. and whoever makes it out of that primary is going to have to defend these points while he's talking about a humanitarian crisis, drug trafficking -- pete: angel moms. jedediah: exactly. a whole lot of people regardless of political ideology. griff: and beto to o'rourke or has nothing to lose, because he has to rise to the top, joe biden comes with a lot of name recognition -- pete: he's never won. he did win his last race. jedediah: you would think that
biden would have to be more careful, but there he is telling europeans that america is an embarrassment. take a listen. >> the america i see values basic human decency, not snatching children there their parents -- from their parents or turning their back on refugees at our border. americans know that's not right. [applause] the american people understand fit because it mix us 'em -- it makes us embarrassing. the american people know overwhelmingly that's not right, that's no who we are. pete: so the munich security concerns -- conference is a conference for global elites to pat each other on the back. this is joe biden's lane. he thinks he's the establishment guy, he's been the vice president. griff: correct. pete: will he continue to be a liberal or be a leftist. but to start with my country's embarrassing? that's an interesting place --
griff: yeah, but he's not going to go as far as beto o'rourke, because the thing that's a problem is to say walls end lives, it's happening at the same time that the river border that is literally just in his backyard, people have lost their lives trying to cross. the wall didn't drown them, the river did. and the wall is there to say don't cross. i don't think you're going to see joe biden go that far. he's taken a page from the book of obama as we saw -- pete: the base isn't going to like that. jedediah: you know, i want to hear from viewers, do you think joe biden is going to go all the way left, or do you think he's going to be a more reasonable moderate. pete: he's an old school liberal. jedediah: he is. he's also smart. pete: he stays a liberal which is now the middle of the democrat party. jedediah: he's not an aoc. pete: not yet. [laughter] there's another story out of chicago, pretty important one. griff: that's right. if you've been paying attention
to the actor, jussie smollett, you may have seen this "empire" show. it all began in january when he claims he was attacked by two individuals shouting maga country, dousing him in something that may have been bleach and put a noose around his neck. that, of course, was certainly something that took everyone by surprise. pete: that was his story. griff: his story. but we now have developments from the chicago police department. now, they are putting out a statement today, but it comes on the heels of having taken two nigerian men into custody wednesday, one of which may have had a part in it. but you're seeing the statement now after those nigerians were released, the chicago police department says we can confirm the information received from the individuals questioned by police earlier in the case has, in fact, shifted the trajectory of the investigation. we've reached out to the "empire" cast member's attorney to request a follow-up interview, something happened in
that interview with the nigerians that caused them to question smollett's explanation of what happened. so his lawyers are responding sending a statement to entertainment tonight that says this: as a victim of a hate crime who has cooperated with the police investigation, just city smol especially is angered and devastated by recent reports that the perpetrators are individuals he is familiar with. he has been further victimized that jussie played a role in his own attack. nothing is further from the truth, and anyone claiming otherwise is lying. pete: yep.the chicago police now do not consider jussie smollett a victim. new news based on the interview. they brought in two guys they thought could have been responsible, those two guys walk, and they have receipts showing they bought the noose at ace hardware. this is according to fox chicago tv. they see these two nigerian men told the cops that the star paid
them to orchestrate the attack. we don't know what happened. these two individuals potentially were paid to make it look -- if that's the case, who really committed the hate crime? really, think about that. if you're accusing someone of yelling maga, and that's a hate crime, but let's just say possibly that he made it up or paid someone, who really is committing the hate crime? griff: just for our viewers, this was the interview that he gave that really set this in motion. listen to this. >> who says [bleep] empire [bleep], this maga country? ties a noose around your neck and pours bleach on you? and this is just a friendly fight? i will never be the man that this did not happen to. i am forever changed, and i don't subscribe to the idea that everything happens for a reason, but i do subscribe to thed idea that we have the right and
responsibility to make something meaningful out of the things that happen to us, good and bad. jedediah: so he gave this interview, a lot of media folks defended him from second one without allowing the investigation to run through. a lot of democratic politicians, 2020 hopefuls, everyone from booker to kamala harris, beyond, defend him instantly. we saw this with covington, we see this repeatedly, this is an investigation. none of us know what happened, that's why the police force exists. chicago police trying to do their job. all the people who had to walk back their immediate defense, learn how to do some reporting. take a minute, be objective, be journalists. sometimes it means stepping back and not being part of that social media firestorm where you've got to be first, or because you don't like donald trump, you've got to figure out, oh, this angle works for me to criminalize trump. don't run with it, because you're ruining your, credibility in the process.
griff: it may be too late for some of the 2020 hope willfuls who immediately leapt to solutions, and your point is correct -- pete: modern day lynching, they said. griff: no one knows exactly what happened but jussie smollett. the police will put out an initial statement, we'll find out. just remember, we don't know yet. pete: the reason it got headlines was because it was about racist trump supporters -- jedediah: because the word maga was involved. the same thing that happened in covington, because he was wearing a hat, his smirk made headlines. pete: the truth shall set you free. griff: all right. one man received a nearly $1 million tax refund. the huge price he's now paying, we'll tell you. pete: hope he didn't spend it. plus, more and more democrats keep throwing their hats in the ring for 2020, but who's president trump's team keeping the closest eye on?

mclaughlin. we are going to go through this, because there are a few that the trump campaign is really going to be keeping an eye on. we're going to start with cory booker. this surprised me, actually, they really think he's going to get some headway? >> because you want to do your homework. no matter who the candidate is, you're well prepared for it. cory booker is a guy who's created a sensation. personally, i'm with you. i think he's a lightweight, i think he's been inconsistent -- jedediah: but he could have a good donor base. >> no question. you know where he's raised a lot of money and it could be one of his vulnerabilities? he's raised tens of millions from wall street. jedediah: wall street. >> exactly right. jedediah: elizabeth warren is known as a populist, but she's had a lot of issues when it comes to lying about her native american heritage. they're still worried about her though? >> again, you want to make sure you're doing your due diligent. if i'm -- due diligent.
if i'm donald trump, he would love to run against her. look what happened to her last week. she was saying she wasn't using the whole native american thing to her advantage, and now we saw that it was on her bar registration form down in texas. and that didn't come from republicans, that came from democrats. jedediah: and she used to be a hot more right-wing, just for the record. >> they all were. jedediah: senator camilla harris who i think is -- kamala harris who is formidable. she does have a long record that's in contrast to the things she's saying now. >> exactly. i agree with you, i think she's going to be the front-runner. jedediah: yeah. >> i think she checks a lot of boxes -- >> and the media loves her. >> we just saw that. but you look at her, what did she get hit on last week in the democratic primary, for actually reporting and going after illegal immigrants that commit a
crime. to most american, that's a common sense thing. that's what a prosecutor like her was supposed to do. but i guess some democrats think that's a bad thing in a democratic primary. jedediah: exactly. now, this is my can key, joe biden. i think he's going to come out last minute. i think he's going to be the guy to watch. trump knows that. people on the campaign may be looking at everybody, but i think trump's got his eyes on biden. >> you know what the interesting part is, even though the polls show he's the pseudo-front-runner in this, he's getting significantly less primary votes than what hillary was getting last time. that was a smaller field, no question about it. and also, 60% of democrats in one democratic primary poll i saw, they're looking for something new, and that's not joe biden. jedediah: do you think that the concern is -- you've got a lot of far-left candidates. joad joe biden's smart, is he going to be the guy in the middle? are they going to be watching him because he has the obama record behind him also?
what is it about biden that i you think they'll be focusing on that will be their best bet to defeat him if he's the guy? >> when you've been around american politics for as long as he has, 40, 50 years? i had this problem when i worked for bob dole back in '96. because his record was so long, we could say whatever we wanted about him. and it's the same thing with joe biden here. he got hit last week for saying nice things in the democratic primary about george wallace who was a segregationist. that came from the democrats. jedediah: all right. i think joe biden's the guy to watch, but thank you so much, joe. appreciate your opinion. all right, we traded bowe bergdahl for these detainees, but now we're negotiating the future of afghanistan with him. really? and our next guest was at the rose garden when president trump declared a national emergency at the border. sign stephenst -- susan stephens lost her daughter to a drug

past negotiating with the taliban like yvonne ridley. she was captured by the taliban, negotiated her own release, and she's available. pete: why is the of afghan government not a part of these talks? >> well, hamid karzai's a part of it. the former president of afghanistan is part of it because he and cal dodd have a relationship. our envoy has a long relationship with afghanistan. he was born this, he's pashtun, and he is someone apparently that the taliban trust enough. i think eventually we're going to pull in the current government though. pete: it just -- do you see a good outcome? you want it to work, we want it to be successful. i've grown increasinglyic about the outcome -- pessimistic. to you see a -- >> i do. i think we have to have faith in our president, donald trump, that he's going to do -- pete: you can have faith in our president without having faith that after 17 years and all the
trillions that we've spent that the afghans still can't get it right. >> correct. but i think we have an opportunity, and we can't let the opportunity pass. we need to negotiate fairly, but also it would be great to have you on the other side of the room staring down -- [laughter] pete: i've got a weekend hosting gig here, not going to work in afghanistan, but i appreciate it. major, thank you very much for your service to our country. good stuff. scary stuff, actually. well, the 2020 democratic candidate wants to give every adult $1,000 a month, but is universal basic income the best way to beat president trump? i sit down with democratic presidential candidate andrew yang next hour. plus, mr. science is live on "fox & friends" showing us some awesome if experiments to make science fun. this is a classic weekend. we go from terrorists at guantanamo bay to presidential candidates to science. ♪ uh-oh! guess what day it is? guess what day it is!

the empire case has in fact shifted the trajectory of the investigation. we've reached out to the empire cast member's attorney to request a follow-up interview. those individuals were two nigerian men, one possibly appeared in the show, empire, as an extra. they were picked up on wednesday wednesday. they were released friday night, police saying that they are not keeping them as suspects. pete: before we get to the attorney, they brought in the guys they thought were guilty. this is code talk from the police. we've shifted the trajectory of the investigation. it means they no longer believe jussie smollett is a victim. they believe something else is at play here. griff: and those are the two individuals from nigeria. smollett's attorneys put this statement out to entertainment weekly responding to the latest saying, "as a victim of a hate crime who has cooperated with the police investigation, jussie smollett is angered and devastated by reports that the perpetrators are individuals he's familiar with. he has now been further victim
victimized by these alleged perpetrators that jussie played a role in the attack. nothing is further from the truck, and anyone claiming otherwise is lying." strong words and just finally for anyone who may have just started paying attention to this this is the interview on good morning america that smollett gave about the attack. listen. >> who says [bleep] empire [bleep] "this is maga country" [bleep] ties a noose around your neck and pours bleach on you? and this is just a friendly fight? i will never be the man that this did not happen to you. i am forever changed. and i don't subscribe to the idea that everything happens for a reason but i do subscribe to the idea that we have a right and responsibility to make something meaningful out of the things that happen to us, good and bad. jedediah: important to note that as of right now smollett is standing by his story. we'll see if there's any
shifting there. but the media ran with this story right out of the gate. they didn't have all the facts. none of us had all the facts. we still don't. we still don't know what happened. check out the news coverage january 29th to february 14th. abc news, 52 minutes, 34 seconds seconds. nbc 34 minutes, nbc news 34 minutes 57 seconds, total 101 minutes, 22 seconds before anyone really had the story and while the investigation was going on not only did they provide that coverage but many of them jumped to conclusions, made a decision that his story was in fact correct without letting the investigators or the people on the ground do their job, ran with that narrative. why? well, many of us believe because a maga narrative was involved and much like covington, there was a rush to condemn trump supporters. pete: did you say "jump to conclusions"? this is knacks even waters on january 29th about this case. listen. >> i'm pleased that he's doing okay. but we have to understand this is happening for a reason.
why all of a sudden do we have people unable to study while black, unable to mow a lawn while black, unable to have a picnic while black and then attacked? it's coming from the president of the united states. he's dog whistling every day. he's separating and dividing. and he is basically emboldening those folks who feel this way. pete: to be clear at that moment maxine waters knew nothing, okay okay? and she was speculating and saying this was a racist attack. now chicago fox tv this morning is reporting that those two purported attackers, the nigerian men actually told the cops that the star, jussie smollett, may have paid them to orchestrate the attack. they've even shown cops the ace hardware receipt for the noose or the rope that they bought. that is the flip allegation. that's the exact opposite of what happened. again, we don't know. jedediah: we don't know .et pete: we're not condemning anyone at this point. we're just saying, wait for things to actually happen, and the chicago p.d. say, "might be
a different story." >>they want to speak with smollett again. it is a class 4 felony if you knowingly make a false police report. but the police are going to issue some statement that we will get probably in the next 24 48 hours that will give us more indication. but right now this is a highly charged situation. you give smollett the benefit of the doubt to see what happens. his lawyers say -- pete: he's losing that benefit of the doubt real quick. griff: but his lawyers say, listen. anybody that claims smollett made this up is lying. well, the police want to talk to him again and we have to defer to the police investigation in this case. that is what matters. jedediah: it wasn't just maxine waters. just want to say it was corey booker, kamala harris, they were calling it a modern-day lynching lynching. it was a lot of 2020 hopefuls who you would think would be measured. kamala harris is a former prosecutor. how does she not know? there's a current investigation going on, sit back, let the police on the ground do their job let the investigates do their job and once the facts are
out, you want to make a current, go ahead. but to make comments ahead of time that's completely irresponsible for someone who wants the credibility to be president. pete: if he's lying, will he be charged with a hate crime? it's actually hateful to do the opposite. we've got another story. the presidential campaign is already underway big time. hopefuls hitting early campaign states -- new hampshire, south america. what's the other one? iowa. jedediah: that's a big one. pete: here's a montage of some of the hopefuls on the campaign trail recently. >> we know that we are facing a moment where americans are starting to feel left behind. >> as much as it is painful to watch what goes on on the president's twitter feed every day, but that's not what we're going to do. >> to tear families apart doesn't make us safer. >> the real emergency is the humanitarian crisis he has created at the border by separating families. it is outrageous what he's doin. >> in our country today, this
economy is not working for working people. pete: so this is pretty standard stuff yesterday from the folks running for president. but, griff, something else caught our eye. griff: someone went shopping. by the way, kamala harris told that crowd in south carolina i'm going to be here so much you're going to get sick of seeing me. well, let me tell you who wasn't sick and that is my colleagues in the media, one reporter in particular helping the senator do a little bit of shopping. look at this video here. you can see her picking out a particular piece. watch. >> oh, yeah. that's it. >> oh, my god. it's amazing. [laughter] pete: those are not campaign staffers or even passer busy. those are actual journalists? jedediah: those are objective journalists, pete hegseth. objective. they would have done the same thing for sarah palin, michelle bachman. come on. it's a big joke. and they find it hilarious.
the thing is they're so austintatious about it, they're out there tweeting about it, having a blast, having a fan girl moment. we know objective media is essentially dead in most corners but when you do this stuff, i mean, it's so obvious, and you're -- i mean, this is their desire to prop her up, to make her as likable as possible. she's a very smart woman kamala harris. i think she's a formidable opponent. but this kind of stuff just doesn't -- this makes her not appeal to folks in the middle that are starting to see that this narrative of media bias in actuality is very much -- griff: just a small defense here of my colleagues, this is a candidate that is giving access; right? so you're a reporter it, you're on the campaign trail, you take whatever access you can get. question is, did it go a bridge too far when that particular reporter picked that jacket out -- pete: every candidate gets to decide how much distance they create. it makes a lot of sense to get the reporters close, get them to like you, maybe they write more favorably. the challenge, though, if you're a journalist you make yourself look bad -- jedediah: you do. pete: -- by posting this and being seen this way.
there's no distance, there's no objectivity. you can't defend that. >> abby: we asked the viewers about this. we have a tweet from morgan. " "my main critique is aimed at the reporting. kamala should get her shopping on whenever she wants. it's just annoying that reporters are covering her shopping sprees and completely ignoring her candidates' campaigns." >>and here's bill. "you going shopping with melania next? nope. understood. stick to your agenda." ooh, . pete: from louanna, "in my opinion her appearance has nothing to do with whether or not she's running for president, you're right, it's her policies i'm more interested in." another underreported aspect of this story is she's actually wearing griff jenkins' jacket. griff: i was waiting for that. jedediah: i have no beef with the jacket. but that melania point i think is amazing. she takes so much heat. remember she wore that jacket, the logo, it's so ridiculous the double standard. just own it. own your double standard. pete: be smart. know that most journalists are lying to you. jedediah: we've got some headlines for you. a community gathers to remember five victims shot and
killed at a manufacturing plant in illinois. among those killed trevor wehner a 21-year-old intern on his first day of work. the other victims have been identified as clayton parks, russell beyer, vicente juarez, and josh pinkard. authorities say the subject, gary martin, was about to be fired when he went on a shooting rampage. martin was a conflicted felon and had the gun illegally. he died in a shoot-out with police. a 3-year-old boy is fighting for his life after he was shot in the shoulder at an apartment in phoenix. the boy's mother rushed hip wanted to and he had surgery and is in critical condition. police say it's possible the shooting was accidental. the case surrender investigatio. president trump meeting with his china trade team in florida as the deadline for a deal draws near, the president calling negotiations in beijing this week, quote, "very productive." the two countries have been in a trade dispute for about a year. president trump suggested he may extend the early march deadline for a new trade agreement.

and political ideology. those statements reject 100% truth, fact, and reality. you just had a guest on earlier this morning, acting chief patrol agent of the del rio for the border patrol matthew hudak, and he told you, he told american people what they need -- more barriers, dealing, and only, and that's what they've been sawing, and congress in statements like that reject that a hundred percent. griff: i was in piedras negras, and since i've left the governor of juila state, governor reelk me said he had up to 20 ms-13 gang members in that area. is it your sense that the democrat hopefuls that are going that far with the borders are really going to regret those comments one day? >> absolutely. i may, -- and again, this is not based on political ideology. this is based on fact, truth, and reality.
if you tear down walls or if congress, more importantly, doesn't give the border patrol and other pearl agencies the resources they need, they will continue to be americans that will die as a result. this rhetoric is irresponsible and reckless. griff: mark, i want to bring your attention to the cover of the new york times, perhaps an unlikely place to see an article that essentially affirms that president trump's stance, particularly as it comes to the remain in mexico policy, the migrant protocol that they just put in this year is actually working, saying that it's making it harder -- you see the headline there with "trump's tough deterrence, many asylum seekers on the border are giving up." that's specifically the case in tijuana. what do you make of the fact that it's on the cover of the new york times? >> well, that is surprising. but what's not surprising is that the president's plan is working. what he's doing by making individuals seeking asylum wait for their claim to be heard and wait in mexico or their country of origin, that eliminates the
pull factor and incentive factor that our current laws have. because currently right now before the president enacted policies like this, if you set one foot on american soil, said the magic words, you're allowed into the country never to be heard from again. this policy stops that. griff: mark morgan, thanks for joining us, and we will see this policy as more caravans come our way. still ahead, could your breakfast be killing you? the new warning this morning, this 2020 presidential candidate came out once to give every adult a thousand dollars a month but is universal income the way to beat trump? andrew yang sits down with pete. you don't want to miss it. ♪ this is not a bed.

pete: you're barnstorming around the country for name ilin the polls. talking about universal basic income, people that look to this say it would cost $3 trillion to do what you're talking about. others call it socialism, getting free money for nothing. how does it work? >> it's very much not socialism, it's capitalism where income doesn't start at zero. pete: that's good spin. i have to give you that. but is it really? >> well, if you look at it, this has been in effect in one state for 37 years and that state is alaska which is a deeply conservative state. it was passed by a republican governor and now in alaska everyone in the state gets between one and $2,000 a year in a petroleum dividend, and it's wildly popular, it's created thousands of jobs, has improved children's health, and we can do for the rest of america what they're doing in alaska, but instead of oil money we're going to use technology mo.ey pete: ultimately that money is going to come from someone's pockets like mine and years so i'm going to pay taxes and in your plan, everyone's going to get $1,000 a month, which is $12,000 a year, not enough to
live on, but you're saying that little boost is what allows them -- how does that math add up, though? 'cause $3 trillion? it's our entire federal budget -- >> if you had a thousand dollars a month in your hands you know you're going to spend it right there in your main street economy on car repairs, tutoring and food for your kids and in between is going to circulate right back through the economy. the plan is to make the freedom dividend opt in. but if you opt in and you take this thousand-dollar dividend then you're forgoing other welfare benefits. so for millions of americans who are right now receiving welfare benefits they would vastly prefer a thousand dollars in cash with no administration, no monitoring, no reporting requirements. and so we can actually -- pete: free money from the government. >> well, we can lighten up the bureaucracy because the truth is we have 126 existing welfare programs. a hodgepodge. no one's in love with with it from either side of the aisle. if you have a dividend that lightens the bureaucracy and puts the economic freedom into hands of americans because it's our soci.ty pete: andrew yang. you're running for president, wish you luck, and the book is "

left come out with they're not rooted in practical logic. they're rooted in emotion. dennis prager host of the dennis prager show had exactly that to say. take a listen. >> for the left, the love of ideas is much greater than the love of people. that 25,000 people would have jobs, good-paying jobs, that massive numbers of workers in long island city and environs would benefit from amazon coming there is of no consequence to them. they care about corporate greed, not about bettering the life of human beings. leftism is an emotion. it is not a position. and so they so loathe that anybody is richer than anyone else that it is better that everyone suffer at a low level than everyone be improved but there still be much richer people. griff: you know, that just jogged me. do you remember bill clinton famously said, "it's the economy stupid." and he was right.

know about roe is that case didn't actually provide a right to abortion. that's just a leftist liberal talking point. what it actually provided was a test, really, that said that the right to privacy would cover some abortions in some circumstances. and the court set up this balancing test between a woman's interest in privacy versus the government's legitimate interests in protecting the sanctity of human life and with the advanced technology a lot of these heartbeat bills that are coming up through the different state legislatures really have an opportunity to go back and challenge roe's proposition there and say even roe vs. wade would actually look at the fetal heartbeat as a child being viable at least at that stage, even though in 1973 we didn't have the advanced technology that we do now; so i think we can be very encouraged. jedediah: from a constitutional perspective can it be overturned and in your opinion honestly should? is it just bad law? should it be overturned?
>> it absolutely can and it absolutely should be. so the federal government has no constitutional purview over any anything related to health care. that is absolutely a subject matter given to the states. but what the federal government does have to protect and preserve is the sanctity of human life. life is the first fundamental freedom. and we see in the declaration of independence that the founders recognized that our rights are prepolitical. they're endowed by god, our creator, not our government, and our constitution mandates that the very limited powers given to the federal and the state governments are for the sole purpose of protecting and preserving all of those rights for every human being made in the image of god and that absolutely covers the unborn. jedediah: there's been a lot of polling done where people are opposing infanticide, opposing late-term abortion not sitting well to the left or the right but a kaiser foundation recently did a poll and 67% say they don't support an overturning of rovers, they see that as a more extreme measure.
so could we see modifications to roe vs. wade here as opposed to removing it in its entirety, kind of modifying it so that the rights to the states are a little bit more empowered, so to speak? those states' rights are kind of livened up a bit but at the same time it's not removed entirely? >> we could see that but why we have a constitutional republic not a democracy is because it doesn't matter what the polling data shows. it doesn't actually matter when 51% or greater is either pro-life or pro-choice. what matters is what the legitimate obligation of government is. and so if we have a truly originalist majority on the supreme court, that means that they're going to fairly apply the constitution, they're going to protect life and overturn roe regardless of what polling data says. and i hope that the five originalists on the supreme court which would have to include chief of staff roberts will do that very thing and won't just walk it back but genuinely repeal that and protect the unborn. jedediah: we've got maybe ten seconds. prediction for the court given what the court looks like now, is there a potential overturn here? >> absolutely. i think we're going to see a
case taken up and we're going to see roe vs. wade overturned within the next year or so and i'm really excited about that. jedediah: thank you so much for your information. great to have a constitutional lawyer when we talk about these things. thank you very much. >>. jussie smollett claims he was attacked by two masked men yelling "this is maga country." now he may no longer be a victim as police reveal a shift in their investigation. hawaii the media has covered the case. plus rick is live from the daytona 500 and he has a special guest, nascar driver clint boyer boyer. rick? griff: clint has run this race 13, 14 times. we're going to talk to him and see if he can win it this year coming up in just a minute. don't go anywhere. we'll be right back. ♪ >> tech: ...every minute counts. and you don't have time for a cracked windshield. that's why at safelite, we'll show you exactly when we'll be there. with a replacement you can trust.

because smollett is still denying this was a hoax -- he'll be cast in another movie right after o.j. simpson is in naked gun 4. this is the end of his career, if this is true. by the way, if it is true, he should go to jail, because you wasted the chicago police department's time. there was more than 500 murders in chicago last year, and they put a lot of time and resources into looking for these people that you said attacked you, and now it looks like that may not be the case, guys. so national media here absolutely gets an f on this, and i'm happy to explain why. jedediah: no surprises though, joe. we saw this with covington, with kavanaugh, and they don't hold themselves accountable at all. reporters coming out and saying, well -- justifying it. we ran with what we had. no, that's not your job. there's an investigation going on. maybe step back, let the police do their job and stop rushing to judgment when it's politically convenient. >> yeah. a story like this, which was so sensational, and when you think about it, it was during the polar vortex, and you're telling
me this actor was walking around at two in the morning and trump supporters in chicago, mind you, decided they had bleach and a rope ready to go, attacked him. look, i'm not saying that -- you say he's lying, you say it's the truth, but you have to question it. and if the way you do that is go back and look at every headline. it said that jussie smollett was attacked. the word missing there, allegedly. that's what you use in a situation until you can get more information. and when he sat down with robin roberts last week, we already had information he refused to turn over his phone records, and when he finally did, they were heavily redacted. you can't call it an attack, you say it's alleged. and you brought up, right, covington. they all have the same themes. buzzfeed, president ordered michael cohen to ply to congress. they -- to lie to congress. trusting without verification, being first instead of accurate, but most importantly, all this reporting is happening from a foundation of assumed guilt.
in other words, it's a trump support or it's trump. they have to be guilt. and then when they backtrack, the allegation gets 100 times the play than the exoneration does, and that's going to be the case here again. pete: has the standard changed, or are so-called journalists just blinded by their trump hatred? >> i think it's a matter of being first instead of accurate. i think social media, you probably played football -- you look like a guy who played football -- [laughter] it's like a linebacker rushing a quarterback, and they want to get rid of the ball faster even when they don't want to. i think people are rushing to get the clicks, the ratings because there's no accountability when they are wrong. and it's a matter of being first instead of accurate. griff: that's a good point. we'll find out, joe. the police obviously want to talk to mr. smollett more, and perhaps we'll learn -- pete: and i did play football.

♪ ♪ pete: welcome back. two quick headlines for you here. president trump calling on european allies to bring captured isis fighters to justice. the president tweeting in part: the united states is asking britain, france, germany and other european allies to take back over 800 isis fighters that we captured in syria and put them on trial. the caliphate is ready to fall. it comes as the u.s. is prepared to withdraw troops from syria. and the u.s. delivers a second round of humanitarian aid to the venezuelan border, but the food and medical supplies are still in limbo as nicolas maduro continues to block the
aid from entering the country. the u.s. has been sending help at the request of interim president juan why e doe, the one we recognize. griff: on friday president trump declared a national emergency to get his border wall funded. >> we have an invasion of drugs, invasion of gangs, invasion of people, and it's unacceptable. i could do the wall over a longer period of time. i didn't need to do this. but i'd rather do it much faster. jedediah: one of trump's special guests at his rally in el paso agrees with the president. his daughter, amanda, was crossing the street when she was struck and killed this past thanksgiving by an illegal immigrant driving drunk. here to discuss the reasons why we need the border wall is angel dad dan ferguson. dan, thank you so much for joining us. first off, i'm so sorry, we all are, for the loss of your daughter. can you tell us a little bit about amanda? >> amanda was a sixth grade teacher, she was the love and joy of my life. she was my wife's best friend. she loved dogs, she was an
animal rescuer. she was just an all-around good person. she was the glue to my family. griff: darntion i'm a father of daughters, and i sympathize for you, my heart breaks for you. and i've covered this caravan and this issue extensively as a reporter. but when you hear now democratic hopefuls running, like beto o'rourke, near where you are there in el paso, say he would not only not build the wall, he wants to tear down existing wall, what is your reaction? >> my reaction is beto o'rourke hasn't lost a family member or his daughter to an illegal alien. this last week i was in washington with 20 angel moms, angel dads. let me tell you where they're from. they're from north carolina, there are three from california, there's one from ohio, there's one from new york, there's one from maryland, there's one from virginia, there's one from san antonio, texas. you think these illegal 5eu8
yens just come across the border and hunker done sure in el paso, you're wrong. they get on planes, trains, buses, they travel throughout america and disappear into our society. then they commit horrible crimes, and all these angel moms and dads i've met lost a child to one of these illegal aliens. beto o'rourke needs to understand there's one word he's leaving out of every conversation, and that word is illegal. all the angel moms and dads like immigration. we agree with legal immigration. we know immigration makes our country great. the problem is illegal immigration where they aren't vetted, they aren't checked, they come in here, they don't know what they're bringing with them whether it's drugs, children, whatever, that needs to be stopped. you tear down the walls that we have here in el paso, the crime rate will increase tremendously again. beto o'rourke needs to wake up and get his head out of the sand. jedediah: some in media have said this is a manufactured crisis, it's a fake emergency.
as someone who has lived the pain of this story firsthand, does this offend you? their language about this? >> it does. it offends me tremendously. my daughter was not manufactured. you know? the group that i was with in washington, their children weren't manufactured. you know, the funny thing is two of them, one of them was an immigrant from germany, a legal immigrant from germany. another was a legal immigrant from mexico. they both came here and did it the right way. they did their time. what happens to all these people who are legally waiting to come into our country and just going to be bypassed by all these illegal aliens? it's not a manufactured crisis, it's a real crisis. and believe me, i live it day-to-day. before my daughter was killed, i could count the number of times i cried on my hand, four times in my adult life. since her death if i can make it through a day without crying four times, it is a great day for me. these guys need to realize it's not manufactured, it's a crisis. griff: and you're fighting, dan,
in her memory. when you were in washington, when you talked to law makers, what are you telling them in terms of what needs to happen? >> we're telling them they need to secure the border. you know, we tried to meet with nancy pelosi and chuck schumer. we went to nancy pelosi's office, and the result was she called the capitol police on us, even though a sign in front of her office says everybody is welcome. it's not a manufactured crisis. they need to secure the border, that's our message, secure the border. jedediah: thank you so much for being here. so sorry for all you've within through, but thank you for having the courage to share your story and your passion. >> thank you. griff: fired fbi deputy director andrew mccabe now pointing the finger at those who wanted trump out of office. >> the deputy attorney general was definitely very concerned about the president, about his capacity and about his intent at that point in time. greve give so what needs to happen now at the fbi and doj?

the ford car used to be the fusion. it shouldn't be the fusion but the mustang. this is the beginning of the mustang in nascar. >> the mustang makes more sense other than the fusion. it looks great and any time you make a manufacturer but a car change within ford there is a learn curve. everyone did a great job designing the car. it was faster off the bat. we'll kickoff the momentum. >> that's a good point. the cars you are constantly tweaking them. is that a disadvantage. >> i don't think we are at a disadvantage. as the season goes we have a longer runway to develop the car. the fusion we made small changes. we have a lot of areas to maquillage gains.
