nonsense. they don't care about fairness, do i tenant care about lying, they just want to win and it doesn't matter how they win. heather: well, president trump slamming democrats for their continued attacks on his presidency, just 48 hours from likely acquittal vote and the left is still looking for any way to take him down, so will they ever let it go and let the president do his job, here with his thoughts ron meyes, thank you so much for joining us, we certainly appreciate it. >> good morning, heather. heather: what do you think, will the democrats let it go? >> no, they aren't going to let it go. i don't see that happening because their base definitely want them to pursue president trump and frankly i don't schiff talks about taking it to elections, i don't think adam schiff is calling witnesses themselves, they didn't run the trial that schiff didn't wanted, i think they will try to pursue
documents and do the sorts of things, meanwhile the american people i really don't think care necessarily about a lot of this, they really care about the kitchen-table issues that are impacts their lives, whether it's health care, transportation, student loan debt, housing afterrability, those sorts of issues impact day-to-day lives and instead of focusing on those issues in 2020, the democrats continue to focus on just president trump, they need more than just, hey, we don't like the guy conducts himself to win this election in 2020. heather: let's listen since you mentioned adam schiff, what he had to say about holding senators accountable. >> i still think it's enormously important that the president was impeached, i'm not letting the senators off the hook, we are still going to go into the senate this week and make the case why the president need to be remove and the senators will be held accountable for it.
heather: what about john bolton? >> i don't think john bolton might not need a subpoena because it's great publicity for his book tour, right, he will try to continue to call mick mulvaney and continue to try to call anybody around the president, somebody in the first family or others, i think that that will continue because they see it as part of their 2020 strategy to try to continue to chase this but the problem is if you look at the swing states, the key swing states they need to compete with especially in the midwest, they don't care about washington, d.c. drama, they care about their own pocketbooks, they care about how the economy is doing around them and how the country is doing. heather: speaking of midwest, democratic candidates making final arguments just hours before they head to polls and where do candidates stand tonight in iowa caucuses? >> sanders has all the momentum and he's in the strongest position to win and if you look
at biden he's limping in. des moines register had to pull because they showed biden in fourth, i don't think biden will necessarily get fourth but you see biden's numbers going down and sanders numbers going up and sanders winning 10% in new hampshire, sanders wins iowa and new hampshire, you know, i think that the democrats are likely to see a socialist nominee for president of the united states and that's going to make for interesting election in november. heather: on the other hand, if biden would come in fourth, it may not matter as much this year, ron, thank you some for joining us, we appreciate it. >> thanks, heather. heather: time now 20 minutes after the top of the hour, demi lovato bringing down the house with her performance of the national anthem. >> and the rockets red glare, the bombs burstingave

wonderful pregame, the whole entire opening of super bowl was patriotic, it was the 100th year of the nfl, they honored four 100-year-old veterans to perform during -- heather: at the very beginning, the beginning of the show everyone was talking about how patriotic it was and what a difference it was. heather: absolutely. you had tom brady with cryptic instagram post. >> they say all good things must come to an end. for me i'm not going anywhere. heather: okay. carley: he officially announced; addressed the rumors, is he going to retire, he did so during super bowl commercial for hulu, social media loving and
some others, no, how are we going to handle this? patriots fan here almost gave me a heart attack, this twitter user, even when he's not playing some brady wins the super bowl, other giants fans, et cetera, are saying, oh my gosh, please retire already, black and white picture caulking out of gillette stadium, it was super bowl commercial. heather: in what capacity is he not going anywhere. carley: sounds like he will stay with the patriots. heather: continue to consider -- thank you so much, carley. the time now 27 minutes after the top of the hour and president trump ripping bernie sanders ahead of today's iowa caucuses, watch. >> i think of communism when i think of bernie, i think of bernie sort of socialist performance, at least he's true what he believes. heather: even democrats are worried about socialist ideas,

irvingdale, we want to hear from the people, today is the day, the national headlines are getting it right, it's coming down to a biden-biden matchup, bernie had a big crowd, over 3,000 in cedar rapids and the biden camp largely here in des moines, in fact, the hotel we stayed at last night was the iden folks and had add good chance to talk revolution, joe biden saying he's call to go a return to normal; battle for the soul of the nation, they are having battle for caucus in iowa tonight, bernie sanders was fired up on the trail, you know, dropping profanity in his case for himself, listen to bernie sanders last night. >> some of those -- [laughter] >> believe me, you'll be hearing that. your job today is you knock on doors, you say to people it's
not good enough anymore to complain. >> yes, so they're making the case not good enough to complain, we need to overall the entire system, he's a democratic socialist, joe biden making a more measured case saying i'm the best one to beat donald trump and, of course, mike bloomberg looming large even though he's not on the ground here in iowa but every single one of them is talking about the president, president trump can they beat him, will they beat him, president had a chance to respond to them in interview in own sean hannity, here is how the president framed it. >> i have nicknames for all of them. they're accurate, you know, they are very accurate, you look at sleepy joe, what's going on with him, he's having a hard time, you look at bernie, i call him crazy bernie, they are rigging the election against him again, i see what's going on, they are rigging it against him. >> you know, that's part of the
energy on the ground, we felt it last night and i'm sure we will feel it here today, a second shot for bernie sanders who felt like barely, big surprise in iowa last time when he almost beat hillary clinton, this time they think they have the momentum and energy, tonight we will find out who the new front runner may be in the democratic field, iowa famously made the candidacies of jimmy carter and barack obama, will it be the place you bernie sanders launches in 2020, we will find out. >> i wanted to ask you about that since you've been there on the ground, people that you've been able to talk to in terms of both of those specific campaigns, you mentioned it being a battle for the soul of the nation in terms of the democrats in general, what about a battle for the soul of the democratic party because that is how some folks are kind of framing it right now in terms of pushing against, you know, one candidate versus another. >> you stole my words, that really is what it is, this is a party trying to determine what future they will have, joe biden
making the case, mostly older voters, hey, i can consolidate the democratic party, i can beat donald trump, we can still work together, bernie sanders talking to a lot of young people saying the socialist revolution is us, we are here and it is now, what the future of the democratic party is, will be in large part set on its course in iowa, if you want to talk about, 100th street cafe in urbanville. heather: head that way and have breakfast with pete, thank you so much. >> you got pit. heather: no surprise that president trump does not agree with bernie sanders far left ideas, listen to this. >> i think of communism when i think of bernie, didn't he get married in moscow? far beyond a socialist. at least he's true to what he believes. heather: democratic insiders reportedly panicking over the possibility of sanders snagging the nominations starting with
iowa, so could a self-proclaimed socialist really win in the heartland, here to debate reporter from the washington times, founder of the tea party patriots jenny beth martin, thank you for joining us, appreciate it so early this morning. >> thanks for having us. heather: let's take a look at the very start on some of bernie sanders' policies, medicare for all, wealth tax, 15-dollar federal minimum wage, the green new deal, canceling student loan debt, altogether, so i will begin with you alex, do you think he can realistically go all the way and win the nomination? >> yeah, i think that, you know, you heard earlier what pete was saying, the energy is on the ground for bernie sanders that he had back in 2016. he only lost against hillary by .2%, another factor that i'm seeing from the polls is that health care remains the major
topic for democratic caucus goers and they seem that he has presented the factor for that issue. he does really well with the 50 and under crowd. so that could be another reason we are seeing a bump in the polls for him. heather: so jenny beth my question then would be maybe the voters trend toward him but will the democratic party allow him to win the nomination? >> well, that's a really good question and i don't know the answer to. i think president trump is right, they are trying to rig it against him. i think that certainly you're doing all they can and what i would call the establishment of the democrat party to campaign against him. yesterday rock -- rahm emmanuel
had article, he's concerned if they nominate bernie sanders they will not be able to beat donald trump in the fall. heather: so i have to ask you, alice, do you think he can gain defectors that possibly leave because of bernie sanders if he were to win the nomination? >> yeah, i think that that's a good point, there's recent polling out just through the past weekend that shows donald trump with 2-point edge over bernie sanders and then losing to somebody like joe biden, more moderate candidate, so i think that there's some, you know, a good point being made in terms of the democratic establishment worried about the socialist label heading into a general election in 2020 and it's important to also keep in mind that, you know, the farmer, the farmer vote is still staying strong with donald trump, that's a large part of midwest as we are looking at iowa, with the trade deals being made, it's
going to be tough for somebody like sanders with the socialist label. heather: that doesn't seem what bernie sanders thinks at all, this is what he had to say on president trump and his capacity to beat him. >> we must defeat and we will defeat the most dangerous president in the modern history of this country. i believe that we are the strongest campaign to defeat trump. heather: final word, jenny, what do you think? >> whether it's bernie sanders or not, president trump will be reelected, if it's bernie sanders, head to head matchup between bernie sanders and president trump, it's going to be a head to head matchup between socialism and capitalism, between government control and freedom and given that choice americans are going to choose freedom. heather: well, we will see what happens tonight as caucuses begin in iowa, alex, jenny, thank you so much for joining us, we appreciate it. >> thank you. heather: have a good day, time
now is 20 minutes until the top of the hour and are democrats so desperate for another candidate that john kerry might get in the race? his message this morning about the rumors swirling around of possible presidential run and an american family trying to steer clear of the coronavirus learns that it will cost them dearly, the cruise line charging a whopping $32,000 for a canceled vacation
geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. heather: welcome back, you're watching "fox & friends first", john kerry blasting report claims he's considering late-run for president, overheard him on the phone of bid in hotel lobby, former secretary of state tweeting, quote, i'm absolutely not running for president any report otherwise is categorically false, that tweet originally had expletive that has since been deleted, kerry has been campaigning for joe biden. well, 2020 hopeful andrew yang will not investigate president trump if he wins the election, while some of his rivals will look into the president if he wins the white house, yang is
taking a less invasive path. >> well, you have to see what the facts on the ground are and certainly i'd listen to the guidance it's a very nasty pattern that countries have fallen into where a new president ends up throwing the president before them in jail. heather: yang adding the pattern makes it difficult for party to govern since there's no sense of unity in the country. trump campaign airing a surprise super bowl ad on just reform, watch this. >> it's getting worse every day, i i just want to be safe and i don't want to go many the direction of the virus. heather: ad telling the story of alice johnson who was granted clemency president trump, meant to contrast nfl players who have kneeled during national anthem, rapper's jay z, the rapper
telling the new york times that he was willing to take the negative publicity as way to raise awareness on police brutality. well, this could soon be named after president trump, two south carolina republicans proposing the intersection be named, the donald j. trump interchange, the president deserves to be honor for his fight to restore american values and defeat the radical left. the resolution is currently in committee. well, the time now is almost the top of the hour, not quite, the president using his biggest event in sports to get his message out to the masses. >> under president trump america is stronger, safer and more prosperous than ever before. heather: will this super bowl ad resinate with voters ahead of the iowa caucuses and beyond? trump 2020 director of

elections, joining us trump 2020 director of communications, thank you so much for joining us, we appreciate it. >> sure, good morning. heather: tim, what quite an ad that was, the alice johnson ad, personally it was very moving, what type of response are you getting? >> well, very strong response, very, very strong, a lot of candidates running for office and a lot of politicians talk about doing something about criminal justice reform but really it took president donald trump to do something about it, alice johnson is one that's very moving but sad replicated across the country, the president heard about alice johnson, the story, commuted her sentence, she was serving a life sentence for nonviolent offense and the president commuted her sentence but speaks to larger dedication to criminal justice reform, the first step is giving second chances to thousands of people across the country who are incarcerated giving them a second chance at life, drug training, drug treatment programs and keeping them closer
to home and giving people a second chance to being productive citizens? our society. heather: not only criminal justice reform but a sleight of promise that is he's kept, president trump will promote the great american comeback i understand during his state of the union address tomorrow, what does the theme tell us about 2020 messaging for the campaign moving forward? >> well, i think it's going to be very consistent, you know, the president when he's in washington for state of the union address will talk about the state of the country, of course, and we see it as very strong and it is a great american comeback, people told us that the construction jobs, the manufacturing jobs that have gone overseas, they were gone for good, they were never coming back, well, they were wrong, president trump has gotten them to return, created his policies have created over 7 million new jobs, wages are rising and they are rising faster for people who are at the bottom half to have
wage earning spectrum so it is a great american comeback, it's a blue-collar boom in this country and a couple of things i heard kellyanne conway say the other day on your air that the president has two new trade deals, two deadly terrorists takes off the board and two new great supreme court justices and all of that adds up to two terms as president of the united states and that's what you'll be hearing. heather: with all those wins at the same time that impeachment was going on and democrats continue to want to focus on that and want to go move president out of office, would president trump mention impeachment in his state of the union, what do you think? >> well, i don't know, i'm not on the campaign side, the political side, i will leave construction and content of the state of the union speech to my friends who actually work inside the white house, so i'm not going to get ahead of the president, i know he will talk about how great things are in
the country, how they have improved and the yet is best to come. heather: if you look at the polling he has seen some of that and that seems to be what americans care on both sides of the aisle, getting work done, tim, thank you so much for joining us, we appreciate your time this morning, it's going to be a busy one for you. >> thank you very much, heather. heather: all right, we will be right back.
