8:00 pm
you mispronounce my last name. i apologize. >> jesse: rest assured, joe biden is going to get china to cooperate with us. that's all the time we have tonight, i'm jesse watters and for laura ingraham and you can catch me monday through friday on "the five" and saturday on waters world. shannon bream and the fox news at night team, take it from he here. >> shannon: jesse, i may have mispronounced a last name or two on the show. we got breaking news tonight. they have officially approved the $900 million coronavirus relief package and the senate is now underway. we will take you live to capitol hill and a second with the midnight deadline to avoid a government shutdown which is less than an hour away. supporters of the president say momentum is growing tonight for potential electoral college challenges on january 6th following a meeting of some house republicans, at the
8:01 pm
white house today, the questions remain, will any senators join them? they would have to. what would happen if they did it. our legal panel is standing by to break it all down. plus the outgoing attorney general says he has no plans to investigate hunter biden as the g.o.p. ramps up the pressure on the congressman eric swalwell with over his past ties with suspected chinese spy. former acting dni ric grenell joins us. hello and welcome to "fox news @ night," "fox news @ night," i'm a shannon bream in washington. would begin on capitol hill were a coronavirus relief bill that includes $600 payments for many americans passed the house, it's on the floor and they are voting in the senate right now. congressional correspondent chad pergram brings us up to the minute tonight and he knows everything that's happening over there. good evening, chad. >> good evening, shannon. this has been a long hard slog as congress advances this bill just before christmas. lawmakers realized they couldn't leave for the hock holidays without stocking stuffers for
8:02 pm
the public, but bear in mind when the process began. >> this covert bill has taken far too long. we started these negotiations before the first day of summer in june, the longest day of the year. and here we are now headed into the darkest day of the year. the first day of winter. >> talks on a fifth-round of coronavirus aide started and stopped and started again all throughout the summer and fall until finally, a massive package came together over the weekend. but it's a lot slimmer than what most democrats called for. >> this package is nowhere near enough. house democrats passed three times more relief in may, a republican colleagues did nothing. we passed more than doubled this two months ago, our republican colleagues did nothing. this package is not commensurate to the magnitude of the crisis we face. we need to do more. >> there was finger-pointing
8:03 pm
over who was to blame over the christmas crisis. >> it's not too little, too late, it's directly targeted and exactly what the country needs right now. if after the new administration comes in they want to advocate more, we will take a look at it based upon conditions in the country at that time. >> now here's what's in the bill. direct payment checks of $600. most liberals and some conservatives push for $1200. there is a one-month eviction moratorium and the bill protects jobs with another infusion of cash for the paycheck protection program. what's not in the bill is a liability shield and no money for state and local governments but both sides will try for another bill next year. now here's what to look for. mitch mcconnell and joe biden served together in the senate for years and they were friends, can they cut a deal on the new year? the senate right now is voting to align with the house of representatives and we should have a final vote shortly. they are requiring a 60 vote
8:04 pm
threshold here, shannon. most times it takes a simple majority to pass things in the senate but because they had to skip over parliaments parliamentary hoops to get this done before the government funding deadline at 1159 tonight they are subjecting this to a 60 vote threshold and we should have a final result momentarily. back to you. >> shannon: we will check back to you as this plays out in real time. thank you. new development's tonight, a couple of high-profile stories giving democrats and heartburn. mixed news for hunter biden and republicans ramping up their calls for congressman eric swalwell to be removed from the house intelligence committee. correspondent gillian turner is tracking the latest on both stories tonight. good evening. >> president trump and some lawmakers have been sounding the alarm about president-elect's fun for months now. today bill barr had his last press or as attorney general and he firmly weighed in saying he has no plans to appoint a special counsel to evaluate hunter biden's taxes or his
8:05 pm
foreign business dealings. >> i think to the extent that there is an investigation, i think it's being handled responsibly and professionally, currently within the department and to this point i have not seen a reason to appoint a special counsel and i have no plan to do so before i leave. >> president-elect biden is still mulling his options for attorney general but his incoming press secretary insisted to fox news yesterday that no matter who it is, the person will be a neutral arbiter of justice when it comes to the investigations currently underway. >> he will not be discussing an investigation of the sun with any attorney general candidates and he will not be considered comic discussing it with anyone he has considered for a role or future attorney general's. >> hunter biden isn't the only democrat in the hot seat, there are increasing calls for eric swalwell to step down from the house intelligence committ committee. this following revelations about his past ties to an alleged chinese spy.
8:06 pm
>> if there is no way eric swalwell should continue to serve on the intel committee. going to request that every single member of the house intelligence committee get the exact same briefing from the fbi that i did. because if this individual sitting on this committee, eric swalwell, they have to know the background of what's going on. >> operative say what matters most is national security. >> you can't have someone sitting on the intelligence committee that may be compromised. >> eric swalwell says he did nothing improper insist the entire stories and nothing but a political hit job. we do know he cut off ties with that alleged buyback in 2015 after the fbi alerted him to an ongoing investigation into her activities inside the united states, but he has not said anything on this matter for a few days now. shannon? >> shannon: gillian turner, thanks for digging in. president trump tonight calling into a turning point usa
8:07 pm
conference, bowing to keep fighting for an election victory, suggesting he is not the only one as congress had stored that january 6th date of finalizing the electoral college vote. >> president trump: we have some great congressmen and women who are doing it and we have others, some great fighters. we won this in a landslide, they know it and we need backing from like the justice department and other people have to finally step up. >> shannon: we will dig into the merits of that in just a bit. meanwhile a significant difference of appearance between the president and his outgoing attorney general. over the weekend the president saying it could be china if not russia beyond the massive cyber attack to the u.s. government systems. bill barr is that it appears to be the russians. >> it certainly appears to be the russians but i'm not going to discuss it beyond that. >> outgoing attorney general bill barr joined to secretary of state mike pompeo in blaming
8:08 pm
russia for a widespread cyber attack on u.s. government systems. >> this was a very significant effort and i think it's the case that now we can say very clearly that the russians were engaged in this activity. >> they believe the russians gained access to private data in multiple agencies including the department of commerce and energy. the full impact of the breach is unclear but he said "i have been fully briefed and everything is well under control. russia russia russia is the priority chant when anything happens because mainstream is for a financial reason petrified to discuss the idea it may be china, it may." hours later lawmakers pushed back. >> i was disappointed in the president's comment but i think would come to recognize that the president has a blind spot when it comes to russia. >> the republicans intend to challenge the vote when congress
8:09 pm
meets in early january. president trump says he spoken with incoming tommy to tommy tue who indicated he may join the challenge. they may invalidate pennsylvania's electoral votes already cast for joe biden. >> what happened in pennsylvania as well as a number of other states is that the state courts or state secretaries of state altered or suspended various provisions of state law. >> while the president tries for final resolution in the courts, some insist the election is ov over. >> the electoral college has certified the election. we have that constitution and i accept the outcome of the election. >> late this afternoon and the president called in to the turning point summit and he told supporters that he believes he won the election in a landslide in him and he wanted numbers of his own party to step up. this is the head of that meeting that congress will have in january. the other interesting thing is the attorney general was asked whether a special counsel was needed to investigate claims of
8:10 pm
voter fraud and he said he didn't feel one was needed. >> shannon: mark meredith at the white house, thank you mark. plenty of new developments on several fronts tonight involving the justice and intelligence communities so let's discuss what it all means with former active the dni ric grenell. good to see you tonight rick. >> thanks for having me come always good to see you. let's start with hunter by hunt, congressman mark green tweeting this. let me get this straight, a special counsel was appointed to investigate the real donald trump based on malicious rumors get verified facts about hunter biden's business dealings which don't want the same treatment? what do you think about that decision? there are other investigations ongoing. >> there are a lot of investigations ongoing and we saw time. i would not count out a special prosecutor for the larger issue of china and how china has used its leverage, not only in
8:11 pm
politics but in academia. this is a larger issue that i think biden's have just taken advantage of, and clearly we have a whole intel community that is concentrating on russia as a problem, which it is. no one wants to diminish the problems that we have with russia. but china is a crisis and what has been happening over the last decades is we have had numerous democrats really downplaying the start from china and i think the bidens just took advantage of it. and this whole idea of, look over here, and pretend that russia is a crisis when we know that china is the crisis, i think that is concern for a lot of people. it crosses into many different issues. politics, certainly we see it in sports and international
8:12 pm
diplomacy, the u.n. is flooded with chinese spies and influences and academia we know. so we got to understand that china is a crisis and has been a hidden crisis for way too long. >> shannon: and house minority leader kevin mccarthy talked about this in the context of his congressman eric swalwell where there are growing questions. he has not answered our questions from our producer or fox as try to get information directly from him but here is what minority leader mccarthy said. >> is a very junior member just in his second term he gets married to the intel committee and the exact same year, they were concerned with what they saw? he was put as a ranking democrat over the cia. i do not understand how this has continued this loan >> shannon: speaker pelosi has said she has confidence in congressman swalwell as a number of high-profile democrats have put the g.o.p. continued calls
8:13 pm
for him to be removed from the intel committee. does this go anywhere? >> anyone who has ever seen the classified version of what's going on with the chinese leverage, it's not just eric swalwell its local officials that started when he was a local official. its mirrors, its governors, it's members of congress. to get the full briefing on the leverage that has happened, and let me be very clear. since covid-19, they rarely come together with one voice and they came together and said covid-19 started in china. since then we seen a number of democrats really get aggressive about pushing the beijing line which is to always blame russia on everything and to downplay the threat from china and to talk about different issues when it comes to the supply chain and really try to engage china on a
8:14 pm
level that i don't think right now we should be engaging china on. we need to understand that this growing crisis with china is very real and if you've looked at the information that eric swalwell found, you had to come to the conclusion that he should not be sitting on the intel committee at a minimum. i think there's a big question of whether or not he should be serving congress but the intel committee itself should absolutely say, take a step back. let's let everybody get brief and let's dig into what happened. he's not telling the truth when he clearly didn't do anything wrong, he said. if you've read the intel and you know the classified information, even trouble. >> shannon: we will keep an
8:15 pm
eye on it but there is trouble with both russia and china and there are both threats that wings to be aggressively honed in on. i know are intel folks are working around the clock day and night on those issues and many more. rick, thanks for stopping, good to see you. >> thanks, shannon. >> shannon: let's go back to capitol hill where the coronavirus bill has enough votes we think to pass. correspondent chad pergram who knows and sees all joins us for an update. >> the vote is still open on the senate floor right now. it's passing, the vote right now is 90-6 so they have enough votes to pass. the government will not shut down tonight and it will also align the united states senate, will come up with the house of representatives, on this covid-19 package. earlier the house of representatives passed the bill, the vote was 359-53. the no votes mostly came from republicans. there was to republicans who
8:16 pm
voted. so this bill will go to the president to sign. technically he has to sign it before midnight eastern time to avoid a government shutdown but what they usually do is put in a little bit of fiscal grout they are to make sure if it bleeds past the midnight hour, the witching hour, the government will not shut down. so the house and senate will be in alignment soon. i didn't see now it's 92-6, vice president has voted as well. >> shannon: and that will be good news to a lot of small businesses and people who are very much struggling around a new round of lockdown's tonight. chad pergram on the hill, thank you so much. we appreciate you working 24/7. anthony fauci and health and human services secretary alex azar will be among the first to get the moderna vaccine tomorrow. the first shots of the second vexing to be for emergency used
8:17 pm
by the fda were disturbing to to health care workers today. rick leventhal has the story. >> he probably thought the people to get the coronavirus vaccine would be those who needed it worst. the elderly and those considered honorable. it turns out members of congress were prioritized, part of a campaign to encourage americans to get the shot and some elected leaders didn't like that plan. >> the covered vaccine became available to members of congress last night and we are urged to take it. >> and that's it. >> after alexandria ocasio-cortez posted herself getting vaccinated, fellow squad member ilhan omar called it shameful, tweeting, we are not more important than front-line workers, teachers, et cetera who are making prices every day which is why i will take it. people in unit most should get it.
8:18 pm
california has seen a spike in cases with 90% of the state under a three week stay at home order. many hospitals and ers are at or near capacity with coronavirus patients with some deploying field hospitals to handle the surge. today the governor said some areas will have to children i see you speak of the support of they data out and all the trendlines it's very likely based on these current trends that we will need to extend the stay at home. >> as lockdowns in san francisco, overdose deaths in the bakery i have skyrocketed a record 621 people have died of ods and the city more than three times as many have died from covid-19 this year. many are happening in city funded hotel rooms for the homeless. tool could have been far higher is nearly 3,000 lives were saved with injections of narcan. meanwhile other officials are wanting hypocrisy for ignoring
8:19 pm
lockdown rules. some warned against travel and limiting celebrations to immediate household weeks before she traveled to a vacation home in delaware with three generations of family including her son-in-law and two young grandchildren. tonight, dr. burks is pushing back saying she did not violate coalbed protocol traveling with family she lives with. in a statement she says i am the sole caregiver for my parents and they live with me and my immediate household in potomac where my daughter and her family reside as well. she says she normally celebrates thanksgiving with 30 or 40 people and she only went to delaware to prepare her home for possible sale. shannon? >> shannon: all right rick, lots of updates on lots of stories and we will have more on that coming up as well. thank you. the nation's surgeon general to make confident that a new strain of coronavirus in the
8:20 pm
united kingdom will not impact vaccination of its right here in the u.s. several countries impose travel bans on british citizens over fears about the new strain. greg palkot has the latest tonight from london. >> covid-19 chaos in the u.k. following the news the strain of the coronavirus has been detected in england. it's thought to be responsible for more than 60% of new cases here and it could be more contagious prompting on tough new lockdown in london and surroundings. >> given the early evidence we have on this new variant of the virus, the potential risk it poses, it is with a very heavy heart that i must tell you that we cannot continue with christmas as planned. >> including in the new moves u.k. ban on travel. over 40 countries have issued their own travel bans and thousands rushed to train stations and airports. >> is putting a strain on a lot of people. >> in the u.k. there were miles of backed up trucks, disrupting
8:21 pm
cargo traffic between u.k. and europe. shortages are threatened at shores. stores. >> i don't know what for they close the border. it's stupid. >> i made new reports the mutant covid-19 viruses detected elsewhere in europe and could possibly be present in the u.s., causing all flights to be banned from britain. >> i think the united states should do what other countries have done which is halt travel. >> infect the trump trump administration has restricted most british citizens travel to the u.s. since earlier this year, along with a halt to travel by chinese seen by some of the time is controversial. scientists think the new virus mutant is probably not resistant to vaccines being rolled out and that it's not more dangerous, but they are testing further. the u.k. now says it can take stricter measures with a virus variant and they could stay in place for months. the world hopes it can be
8:22 pm
contained. shannon? >> shannon: all right greg, thank you. new york city mayor bill de blasio gets called out for his vow to redistribute wealth and then he doubled down on it. how's that going over in a city where the wealthiest are already moving out? that's next. life is full of make or break moments. that's why it's so important to help reduce your risk of fracture with prolia®. only prolia® is proven to help strengthen and protect bones from fracture with 1 shot every 6 months. do not take prolia® if you have low blood calcium, are pregnant, are allergic to it, or take xgeva®. serious allergic reactions like low blood pressure, trouble breathing, throat tightness, face, lip or tongue swelling, rash, itching or hives have happened. tell your doctor about dental problems, as severe jaw bone problems may happen. or new or unusual pain in your hip, groin, or thigh, as unusual thigh bone fractures have occurred. speak to your doctor before stopping, skipping or delaying prolia®, as spine and other bone fractures have occurred.

8:27 pm
>> thank you, shannon. >> shannon: i want to play a video of congresswoman alexandria ocasio-cortez, she put it out there on social media when she was getting the vaccine saying, that's it? and saying she was trying to lead by example by getting it and proving it was okay. congresswoman ilhan omar responded to a tweet later from somebody asking a question, seemingly our entire top political leadership getting the vaccine ahead of others because of their age or their importance? representative omar saying, it would make sense if it was age but it's of importance and it's shameful. we are not more important than front-line workers or teachers et cetera for making it sacrifices every day which is why i want to take it. people who need it most should get it, both. molly? >> it's absolutely true that in general there should be distribution mechanisms where the people who needed most to get it first but it's also true that's important for political
8:28 pm
leaders to show that getting the vaccine, so people can feel confident in getting it. back in 1958 when there was a very similar pandemic type situation in the states, president eisenhower thought he shouldn't get the vaccine because of what ilhan omar was saying. but it was important for people to see the president could get it, and they had people like the u.s. naval academy getting it so people could feel confident that a vaccine that hadn't like this one been put together in fairly short order. so in general what we have people in need it most including people in long-term care facilities and otherwise, and i'm not sure that's happening is much as it should but i'm not going to begrudge alexandria ocasio-cortez too much for doing it. >> shannon: what do you think about this jessica, people seem really divided. >> i think molly is right, we can make an argument for both sides here. i have to say, i think this is the first time since she's been
8:29 pm
elected or even running for office that i would agree with congresswoman ilhan omar. i agree that especially the young and healthiest members of congress -- she's in her 20s, ilhan omar in her 30s, no pre-existing conditions or comorbidities, don't need to take it. there are people in positions of power like president-elect biden, and his wife had it, harris had it, mike pence and his wife karen haddad as well. there are enough people doing this on television that i don't think people want to see their local representative to ensure that its safe and i appreciate the argument that she's making because as you pointed out we are not exactly sure how the distribution is working across the board. we know that a nurse or woman of color was a first person to get it in the united states but how has distribution gone since then? i would actually take congresswoman omar's side on this issue. >> shannon: i want to get reaction from both of you on
8:30 pm
this. mayor de blasio out of new york, we noticed he said something over the weekend about redistricting health but he noticed fox news reported on it and he doubled down and said to come up box exactly right. the redistribution of wealth is an important factor towards ending structural racism and its important education. a lot of new yorkers have fled for various reasons. i'm not sure how they will react to that. >> you can't redistribute wealth and the free system because wealth is not distributed, it's earned. in a free country where people are not forced to stay in new york or a particular state, you can't take money that people have earned and say you will take it from one person and give it to someone else who hasn't earned it without there being repercussions. it's good that mayor de blasio is being honest and he supports the scheme of redistributing wealth by force but it's a terrifying thing that someone could articulate that in a free country without repercussions. so i hope that people in new york who have already expressed frustration with how
8:31 pm
he is managing his city do what is necessary to make sure that people don't have their wealth taken from them. >> shannon: quick final word, jessica? >> i'm not sure that i would equate taxes with theft and necessarily but i am one of those new yorkers who does have a very high tax bill and i'm happy with my dollars going towards fixing a failing education system but mayor de blasio is off-base as he has been during the entire handling of the pandemic. governor cuomo knows we have a $13 billion deficit and we need to keep wealthy new yorkers to keep the city and state humming along because we subsidize a lot of what goes on even outside of the five bureau mike burroughs. so i am not with him at least on the articulation of the problem. >> shannon: he is sticking to it, we will see how it plays out policy wise. thank you to your both. how families across the country are adjusting to a different

>> shannon: it we are taking a closer look tonight at how you, your neighbors, family and coworkers are observing the holiday season in the midst of the pandemic. key correspondent jonathan hunt reporting tonight on how many aspects of the traditional family celebrations will be very different this year. >> this is an entirely new christmas for us. >> knew for nearly all of us in so many ways but for the denotes of family, it's not just tradition that has changed but location, too. a move from the locked down california to the less stringent covid rules of texas. but for kids that means christmas without grandma. >> we always went to church christmas eve and that was a big thing for her, having her family on christmas eve was all shaver wanted. having her vector is pretty sad. >> all across the country,
8:37 pm
families are making changes. >> we are exchanging stockings and having dinner outside. and when you are not eating, you are wearing a mask. so everything is socially distance and safe. >> and while covid has taken such a huge physical toll, the mental pressure at this time of year is huge, too. >> you have stress upon stress upon stress. >> experts say the old adage of giving being better than receiving might be truer than ever. >> we know that by extending a hand and giving to somebody else is a very healing thing for people and it really helps one to change their mood. >> psychologists say parents should talk to children about their feelings. >> who are actually building the basic building blocks and how kids will cope with their personal issues when they are a teenager, that are nonpandemic. >> finally they say be thankful for the little things.
8:38 pm
>> merry christmas grandma! >> 2020 is certainly a holiday season we will never forget but that alone might make it more rather than less special. shannon? >> shannon: jonathan, good point. thank you. i'm coming up, the trump campaign back at the u.s. supreme court over pennsylvania's election results. will it go anywhere? paralegal panel is standby but first real news roundup. hundreds of protesters at the oregon state capitol today calling for an end to covid-19 restrictions and resignation of democratic governor kate brown. protesters smashed through glass doors and we are told at least two were arrested. the statue of confederate soldier robert e. lee removed overnight after standing in the u.s. capitol for more than 100 years is expected to be rude replaced with the statue of the civil rights icon barbara johns. and jupiter and saturn right now appear to be closer to each other than the year 1623. that's visible around the world

>> shannon: at the white house tonight plenty for the president to contemplate including his legal challenges including a filing at the supreme court and it looks like his outgoing attorney general has no plan to look and special counsel for either hunter biden or a lunch potential election fraud. let's sort that out with kevin walling, jenna ellis, great to have you both with us. >> hello shannon, good evening. >> shannon: a lot to try to get to but let's start with this. i'm meeting today of a number of house republicans at the white house so they will step up on june the 6th when it's time for congress to certify the electoral college vote and watch some type of objection. it's a very long process.
8:44 pm
nobody seems to be fully embracing this publicly yet. jenna, is it worth the time? >> absolutely. election integrity and upholding of constitution and rule of law is always worth the time and effort and that's what mark meadows tweeted today become a state. i think what we've seen is a failure of the judicial branch to weigh in on election integrity, that was an absolute failure there. it was a failure of the state legislatures to do their constitutionally mandated obligation and so what president trump and the trump legal team are willing and continue to do is illegal and constitutionally appropriate method to ensure we preserve election integrity and we know that six states violated the rules in the 2020 election. we can't allow that to prevail because if cheaters prosper we will never have free and fair elections again in this country. >> shannon: asked about it tonight vice president-elect,
8:45 pm
harris on capitol hill, is it doable? what about the efforts to stop this in congress and she said no and rolled her eyes. there are a number of republicans who say let the legal things play out. but i got a tip from one of the attorneys working on this in georgia where they outlined scores and scores of people, and they say that they can show they were ineligible. they say the judge will not assign a judge to take the case or hear it, set a hearing date or anything. i reached out to fulton county to get an explanation if that's accurate. and why not. if the cases can't even be heard then how can the trump team be satisfied that they are getting their day in court? >> that's a good question, the cases have already been heard and the state certified their elections with three different recounts all showing the same result of joe biden being the president-elect according to the president of the states. so in the conversation earlier with jenna there might be energy with republican house members who are interested in doing this
8:46 pm

we haven't had our day in court and i noticed kevin didn't talk about that, haven't had an evidentiary hearing that the american people see that for themselves. if the supreme court is unwilling to address election integrity than they are violating their constitutional right to protect against the disenfranchisement of the american people. >> all i will say, you've had 60 different cases go before court and all of them have been thrown out. you've had your day in court and the american people need to go forward and get joe biden inaugurated on january 20th. >> shannon: more that we could discuss about that but we have to leave it there. 2020 will be behind us in ten days, who's counting. up next we talk about finding hope after a very tough year for a lot of folks. that's why we're a fiduciary, obligated to put clients first. so, what do you provide? cookie cutter portfolios? nope. we tailor portfolios to our client's needs.

their life, perhaps it's time for them to reach out for his hand which he is been extending, which we have seen by him through the dawn of creation and woven in our mother's womb. god knows everything about us, he knows our name and how many hairs we have on her head to come i'm glad still got some. you know me well enough that that's the truth. i'm interested in people doing what i did years ago, get rid of the religiousness in your life and have a real relationship with god, then go on an adventure of a lifetime. and that is what my life has been. i've always said, i like wall ville. what am i doing here? why am i with al pacino? why am i standing next to ethel kennedy at the deathbed of her son? it's because god put me there.

there's a purpose to everything he does in our lives and i think people are terrified these days and they are scared, everything seems random, there such a sense of fear. but the greatest -- the most commanded thing in all of scripture is fear not, it's much of the most. it's not a suggestion, it's a command. because if we are not trusting god, what sees us through his our faith. when we are afraid and we are hiding and we are paralyzed with fear, we are obviously not trusting him. and we are human. you talk about the book, i mean this trusting doesn't mean that nothing is ever going to go wrong and you will have a fairy tale life. you are very open about difficult things that you went through and some of them very publicly, but even through that, as we think about what a tough time people had this year, it was good on the other side. there were purpose and things of themselves and the other side.

>> always. jesus side to come in this world you will have trouble but fear not, i have overcome the world. the truth is, if we trust him, he says he will have trouble and tribulations and trials and everything else but he says i will be with you through them. i am the path, i am the path to the other side of everything. and if i didn't believe that shannon, i would either be in betty ford right now or bellevue, for prison for having shot frank. [laughs] trust me, i would have murdered frank. >> shannon: we are glad none of those things happened. and we have always had very real human emotions through many travels of life, through the valleys and the mountain tops and you share all of that. it's a great gift book, it's entertaining and very encouraging, he points people to the real solutions for all the things they've gone through in their lives. kathy lee, congrats on the book and thanks for dropping in with
