incredible privilege, should they feel an obligation to enhance and build the society they come from? no, they just feel like destroying it. >> governor greg abbott is defending his decision to lift the statewide mandate. >> the all the numbers are moving in the right direction. there has to come a time when you begin a return to normalcy. ♪ don't stop believing -- brian: of course, the governor of texas saying what other governors are saying, the governor of connecticut is saying, the governor of maryland is saying, obviously, the governor of florida is saying. there is a time almost a year to the day when we shut down, i think 15 or 5 hours to slow the spread, and it ends up being over a year. and now people like to condemn governors in red states for opening up their state, but it's about time. we're doing well with the vaccines, we're turning the corner when it comes to living with this, we know more. i think that's the spirit which we've got to put through the
3:02 am
country right now. steve: don't stop the believing, we're going to get to the -- ainsley: did you see rock of ages? steve: no, that reminds me of the end of the sopranos. ainsley: oh, yes, i forgot about that. brian: it reminds me of journey, who is a group that had about three hit songs and disbanded, i think. can we get them back together? [laughter] joel, can you work on that? >> [inaudible] ainsley: three hit songs, brian -- steve: they had many, many -- brian: what's some hit songs? ainsley: i had their album, but i'm really bad at naming songs. steve: middle of the week -- [inaudible conversations] ainsley: stephanie's in my ear saying any way you want it. brian: okay, that's two. steve: faithfully. ainsley: faithfully. that was a great one. steve: step away. brian: you're getting more? how come they're not giving me
3:03 am
any? steve: i bet down at bill smith café in mckinney, texas, they might have one of those things you put a quarter in, and it plays the songs. will cain is down there because he's having breakfast with friends where they've officially lifted all the covid restrictions in the state of texas. will: just sitting here wracking my brain, and i couldn't do it -- brian: you failed. will: you're right, steve, if somebody would know songs that dated back a couple of decades, they'd know it here at bill smith cafe. it's been living since 1956 and loving free the entire time. they have been welcoming in people who understand responsibility versus rules. governor greg abbott has made it official, no more mask mandate, restaurants can operate at capacity. that doesn't mean texans don't understand the difference between responsibility and rules. free choice and mandates.
3:04 am
they'll decide if they're in a vulnerable situation. if they are vulnerable, they need to wear masks, they need to social distance. but if they want to be free, they want to go back to normal, texas is now free to do so. by the way, it's super early here in texas. i grew up about 30 miles from the here, spent many early mornings here after a few late nights in dallas. but i was talking to bill who owns this place, he said at 3:30 in the morning back in the old days, this would have farmers lined up for breakfast. this is one of the fastest growing areas of the united states. we'll be talking to texans about how they feel about the state of this state with governor greg abbott lifting the mandate. ainsley: where are did you grow up? dallas? will: sherman, texas, 30 miles north of here. up aibs what's the biggest city close? will: dallas. dallas is 30 miles south. steve: will cain, thank you for
3:05 am
making the journey to mckinney -- brian: i don't have to google will later to find out his true background. ainsley: you want to know his social security? brian: a little bit later, next hour. steve: all right. turning now to the u.s./mexico border where more than 100,000 migrants were reportedly encountered in the past four weeks. that is the highest level is seen in five years. seems like everybody's heading our way. ainsley: my word. it's only been a few months this year, and that's the number. last year it was 9,000 apprehensions. meanwhile, the biden administration still in denial about the border crisis despite admitting there were more migrant children than facilities available to house them. >> there are more children coming across the border than we have facilities for at this point in time. brian: okay, don't worry about it, just relax. ainsley: it's not a crisis, brian. brian: of course not. we do know this, the numbers are
3:06 am
stag therring, but they haven't been confirmed for the most part. most of the people -- steve: they've been confirmed by fox news and the new york times. brian: but she would not confirm it. steve: why would she? she is representing the white house, the executive branch, and it makes the administration look bald. that's why they are not saying, yep, that's the right number. of. brian: it turns out, i was watching abc this morning, the reporter kept asking the question, it's actually over 3400, what homeland security told them. but i think the anecdotes are also important. why are they coming? a 15-year-old orphan says he plans to try his luck because trump is no longer president, and there's a new one. quote: my friends have told me9 with the new president, it'll be easier to get to the u.s. mrs. velazquez, people say it's a good moment to go to the border. the rumor is that children are allowed to enter and to stay.
3:07 am
steve: we heard that yesterday, they're turning away a lot of familieses -- brian: these are quotes from yesterday. steve: i'm just repeating for people who were not watching because so many families are being turned away, if it's an unaccompanied minor, they are letting them in, and that's why they're breaking the law and keeping people at 72 hours. look, this is a very simple problem. it's self-inflicted. they wanted to change everything. donald trump and his administration if had figured a way to stop the flow, and they did very effectively. but joe biden, when he was running for president, made it very clear. if i'm president, essentially, there's going to be open borders. now there is a messaging problem. the administration is saying don't come, but those people, as you see right there in matamoras, mexico, they're not getting the message. they are coming. it has become a mess. ainsley: that's because they see it as their only shot. they weren't able to come when president trump was in office, so they see this as let's just
3:08 am
try it. we have a way at a better life. governor abbott down in texas accused biden of refusing to take responsibility for this crisis. he said last year there were 9,000 apprehensions in the entire year. he said this year so far -- and keep in mind we're only in march -- 108,000. brian: here is a look at the biden administration confronting this issue head on. >> -- a crisis at the border. >> i don't think i'm going to put labels on it from here, from the podium, but it is a priority of the administration. >> do you believe that right now there's a crisis at the border? >> the answer is, no. i think there is a challenge at the border that we are managing. >> is there a crisis at the border, sir? >> [inaudible] >> at this point, is this a crisis at the border? >> look, i don't think we need to sit here and put new labels on what we have already conveyed as challenging? >> is there a crisis at the border, sir? >> let's go, you guys, come on.
3:09 am
ainsley: okay. thanks, brian. brian asked if i wanted to talk. yes, thank you. that was the hardware store where president biden was yesterday, and reporters were trying to ask him a question at the end of it, and he -- the people that were with him, all of his handlers, said, come on, press, you've got to go. this is the longest a president has gone in the past 100 years without having a solo press conference. he has not faced the reporters alone since becoming president. >> well, you know, ainsley, this is one of the uncomfortable truths of this administration. they've tried to change. so much so quickly, it is a disaster on our southern border. there is a story the out this morning in "the washington post" that says that get deportations and arrests have fallen 60% in february. so take that 100,000 number, that means 60,000 people are not being arrested or deported because, as we told you on this program about a month and a half ago, the biden administration narrowed the guidelines on who
3:10 am
i.c.e. can arrest. essentially, unless somebody is a national security problem who's got, you know, a bomb strapped to their chest or something like that, they're not going to arrest them. they've got to call the home office in washington and talk to a lawyer, hey, can i arrest this person? invariably, they're saying no. brian: all right. just so i can get a word in here, just to add in what's happening at the border, there are democrats on the border and mayors who are democrats that have answers to the problem if you give them accurate numbers. but susan rice and company go to the border, they don't alert anybody in their own party, they didn't alert joe manchin they were actually going to come out with some messaging in west virginia, and they go in for a day and a half, and they leave without telling anyone. and it gets other democrats upset who have to do this thing called win elections and answer their constituents like henry cuellar. he's like, listen, i've been studying this for 20 years, and nobody even calls him to find out -- no one tells me they're
3:11 am
coming, no one asks me the answers, and this is not a partisan issue unless you want it to be. ainsley: did you read the story about righters? reuters is putting wristbands -- i mean, sorry, the drug cartel. reuters was reporting it, the drug cartel is putting wristbands on the kids to determine who is paid to go across the border. steve: right. it's a great story and and, apparently, they talked to a guy from honduras who was in mexico, he was paid $500 for a purple wristband, and what that meant was while he was in mexico he would not be killed or kidnapped. and once they are traveling via the smugglers, once they pay to cross the river, then they get a different color ared wristband. a. ainsley: they're not allowed to touch those people. this is so dangerous, putting kids in so much danger. individuals, human beings. of. steve: and that's why joe biden doesn't want to have a press conference. of.
3:12 am
ainsley: turning now to embattled governor andrew cuomo, a sixment woman is coming forward. carley shimkus joins us with these new accusations. >> reporter: that's right. that sixth woman is accusing governor cuomo of touching her without consent during an encounter at the governor's mansion late last year. while we do not know her name, the albany times union is reporting she is a member of the governor's executive chamber staff. cuomo again denied ever touching anyone inappropriately and stressed they were all only allegations. >> you don't know i any facts, right? you know allegations. there's obviously allegations, and then there are alwayses, right? -- allegations, right? there's a spectrum of allegations. you can allege something, might be true, might be not true, may have been misperceived. so let's get the facts. >> reporter: acting counsel for the governor also responding saying all allegations that we learn of directly or indirectly
3:13 am
are going promptly to the investigators appointed by the attorney general. cuomo is also facing calls from six democratic state lawmakers to turn over documents per train towning to his coronavirus memoir over concerns there was a connection between the book's announcement and his administration allegedly altering nursing home deaths. the families of those who died in nursing homes are demanding cuomo give all profits from that book to charity. brian: all right. thanks, carly. if you want to know bad leadership, it's writing a leadership book in the middle of a pandemic that you're a great leader, and then you get hit two or three more ways to your state that's been hit hardest. you've got a sixth accuser, to the point that he was surprised to learn that there was a sixth accuser on his conference call. he didn't know anything about it, he claimed. we don't have the name.
3:14 am
she talked to an albany magazine, we know the other accusers are not going away, and they're going back at the governor every time he says, he defends his behavior. the key is this, nursing homes -- as serious as the sexual allegations are, i think the bigger story is getting to the bottom of the nursing homes which that's why he's lawyered up. and he keeps coming back to on march 25th, he keeps saying every chance he gets i was going by donald trump's guidelines on march 25th. and i think it's time to drill down on that. why was he interpreting the federal guidelines on march 25th to take infected patients and put them back in nursing homes. if that doesn't add up, he, murphy, whitmer and others should go down for the count. steve: well, you know, we have been detailing on the program about how melissa derosa, on that zoom call, told democrats, yeah, we doctored the numbers in july. and now the doj is looking at
3:15 am
all those numbers. why? because -- and this goes to carly's point about how they're calling for all the documents regarding his book. think about it, he doctored the numbers in july because he was paid million or millions of dollars for a book that was going to come out four months later. if the book came out and essentially the headlines were, yeah, i was governor of new york state during the pandemic and i killed 15,000 people, that is not going to sell many books. and that is one of the reasons why family members of the victims are saying that he essentially should donate the money from the book either to a memorial or to the families who are struggling who lost loved ones because of this -- ainsley: do you think he'll do it? steve: only if he's forced to. ainsley: right. so in the new york daily news, they wrote: don't let scandal distract from confidence. that infuriated janice dean.
3:16 am
she tweeted out all those bodies piled up in morgues and storage trucks that to you wrote about, those are the dead relatives of governor cuomo that he helped kill. shame on you. tammy bruce weighed in on this. listen. >> there's been one message from albany, that this man is a problem. they're going to -- i think they're going to take action. they should because, no, i don't think he would resign. you've got to have -- a number of people have noted this -- some sense of shame. and when he doesn't even have shame about 15,000 dead innocents, he's not going to have shame about abusing individuals who work for him. brian: 76 new york state lawmakers calling for him to resign or be impeached. the only reason he's going to leave, if he gets impeached. ainsley: well, lindsay boylan, the one you were talking about, brian, who said he kissed her and asked her to play strip poker, something like that, so
3:17 am
apparently anna lis, who's another accuser, she was on her honeymoon -- steve: in december. ainsley: yes. and two days after lindsey boylan came forward, she goat a call from the spokesperson from cuomo, and he said have you talked to her? she said, no. i thought at first, wow, that is dangerous. good luck to you, they are going to crush you like a bug. but then she said this really started to blow up, and i thought, you know, maybe it isn't as dangerous as i thought for lindsey to speak out. because remember cuomo yesterday was saying why didn't these girls come out when it first happened if this really happened, and the girls are saying it's because we felt like we were going to be crushed like a bug. brian: right. and nothing happened, it was two weeks, no one really ran the story. meanwhile, jillian's running with a lot of stories. jillian: let's begin with this, a tampa police officer is killed while protecting others from a
3:18 am
wrong way driver. master patrol officer jesse madison was a marine veteran who served 16 years on the force. the police chief says madison veered his cruiser into the driver's path to prevent him from hitting anyone else on the road. their cars collided. he leaves behind a wife and three children. today the house is expected to give final approval to the $1.9 trillion covid relief bill. democratic senator joe manchin defending the deal despite not one republican voting in favor. >> and at the end of the day, you had to look at, basically, what we were doing to help america, helping different people throughout this country and trying to get the country back on its feet. the biggest thing is this economy, we've got to get people back and ready to go to work. jillian: as no house republicans are expected to approve the deal, house speaker nancy pelosi says the gop will still try to take credit for the legislation. if passed, the president could sign it as soon as today.
3:19 am
and california governor gavin newsom tried striking a positive tone during his state of the state address on monday. >> i know our progress hasn't always felt fast enough and, look, we've made mistakes, i have made mistakes. but we all know we learn from them, and we never stop trying. after all, that's the california spirit. jillian: the democrat could face a recall election in coming months as the group nears its goal of 2 million signatures. and tv news legend roger mutt9 has died. of he was on television for more than three decades and won an award for his 1979 interview with edward ted kennedy where he stumped the senator. >> why do you want to be president? >> well, i'm -- jillian: america -- mudd was 93
3:20 am
years old. steve: he was of a general depend. ainsley: yeah. thanks, jillian. well, the queen is breaking her silence after harry and meghan's bombshell interview, but one critic wagers this is all about power. and still ahead, congressman dan crenshaw, dana perino, tom homan and dave portnoy. ♪ ♪ before nexium 24hr, anna could only imagine a comfortable night's sleep without frequent heartburn waking her up. now, that dream... . her reality. nexium 24hr stops acid before it starts, for all-day, all-night protection. can you imagine 24 hours without heartburn?

3:25 am
>> reporter: and they will be for a while. i, honestly, maybe wish they weren't. look, we weren't expecting the queen to respond so quickly or at all. but here we are, we've heard from the her directly in the response to these bombshell allegations about people in the royal family. after that major interview sharing with oprah the conversation that took place, she said just before the birth of her son archie. >> and also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he's born. that was relayed to me from harry. those were conversations that family had with him. >> if he were too brown, that that would be a problem in are you saying that? >> i wasn't able to follow up with why, but if that's the assumption you're making, i think that feels like a pretty safe one. >> reporter: the queen saying in a a statement: the issues raiseed, particularly that of race, are concerning. while some recollections are may
3:26 am
vary, they are taken seriously and will be addressed by the family privately. prince harry would only say it was not the queen or prince philip, the entire palace is reportedly shocked and dismayeded by the claims which first aired in the states on sunday night, then over here on monday. the queen has always said that harry, meghan and archie will always be much loved family members. steve: thank you very much for the live report, benjamin. i was reading this morning royal experts this great britain are analyzing what the queen said, and one royal expert said, clearly, the queen has spoken to the person who allegedly made the remark about archie and has given her their version of events. and a royal biographer said the line while reck elections may vary, he said that is an exquisite phrase to accuse the us exes, harry and meghan, of disney-style fantasy.
3:27 am
they need to name names to justify the accusation. ainsley: the whole thing is just so sad. i mean, all of us have issues in our families, right? we all have a little bit of dysfunction if not a lot -- steve steve not like that. ainsley: not like that, but to take it public. i mean, to be at a point in your life where you want to be public about that, you have to be at an edge where you just can't take it anymore. and then to leave the royal family? most of us look at that and are like, my gosh, we would never leave. it would be such a privilege. he chose to leave his family and follow his wife, and they're having another baby. so he's -- that's what's so sad about this, that they raised him, and we all know how hard that is as parents, but he finally got to a point where he wants to leave. i hope they can all make up because how heartbreaking was it by if your child -- brian: here's the child. it's not just about them. their promises and where the
3:28 am
united kingdom or commonwealths is, like, 75% black or minority, and they're saying i told you the queen is, the queen and the royal family are racist, and that's proof of it. and i'm watching a lot of the bbc and coverage, and they're using that, this allegation that harry says i'll never talk about, but i'll throw -- my wife will throw it out there, i'll confirm it happened, but i will not say who said it except it wasn't my grandfather or grandmother, the ripple effects are more than the family. tucker's opening monologue was so on the money. in the time of a global pandemic where millions have dialed, is this the really your focus? listen. >> i think what's going on is this is fundamentally about power. >> i find this just really vial because if you think about the -- vile, because if youing think about the purpose of a ruling class, it's fundamentally to govern the country effectively on the one hand and pass on traditions and character and values on the other hand. and you have people who had this
3:29 am
incredible privilege, one from the united states, one from the united kingdom, both of whom have been given an incredible amount by the societies that they live in. are they grateful for it? are they appreciative about it? do they feel any obligation to enhance and build the society they come from? no, they just feel like destroying it. no sense that they owe something to the country and to the people who occupy it, and that's just a terrible attitude to have. steve: and make yourselves the victim. in watching the interview with meghan, she was largely concerned with the fact that they had taken, they were going to take away archie's title because -- ainsley: he doesn't even get that title. steve: well, here's the thing, apparently the around the clock police protection was taken away when they stepped down as working royals. so that had already gone. but now the worry is that when he, prince charles, becomes king, he will decide that archie doesn't get -- ainsley: well, she was suicidal
3:30 am
at one point and, yeah, i think she probably care canned about that more than the title probably. she got out of the situation. hopefully, they can prepare themselves. brian: archie's protection or advantage seens for the -- vaccines for the country. one or the orr. 29 minutes after the hour. steve: the los angeles school district has struck a deal to return to in-person and hybrid learning. this comes just hours after a leaked facebook post warned teachers not to post their vacation photos because it would be bad optics. so are teachers unions more focused on optics and politics than kids? a discussion straight ahead. ainsley: and from our friends at fox bet, download the fox bet super 6 app and play for a chance to win $10,000. all you need to do is predict six of the outcome in the fox bet super six quiz show topics ranging from intertownment to sports. it is free to play. so download the fox bet super 6 app now. manager.

steve: progress. today the big east tournament returns with games at madison square garden. that is where fox nation host abby hornacek joins us live with more of today's matchups. and, abby, with madison square garden behind you, i remember prepandemic the doocys used to
3:35 am
go every year. who's coming this year? >> reporter: well, first of all, i'm a little bummed i was never invited. sounds like a blast. [laughter] well, this year, obviously, things are going to look a lot different. they're not opening the tickets to the public, but instead, just inviting friends and family. we're being told that only the lower bowl of the arena behind me is going to be open, so you can expect to see fewer than 1,000 people in attendance. i don't know if you remember this, steve, last year, but the game was -- the game and the rest of the tournament was canceled after the first half of the first quarterfinal game when they announced this. take a listen. >> in all my years of doing this, i've been in a number of bizarre situations. that happens in life in sports television but never anything quite like this. the game that wasn't. >> reporter: that was tim brando with fox sports, and i just want to mention he'll be on
3:36 am
"fox & friends" at 8:30 a.m. so he can tell us more then. but i did want to pick up on something that he said about this never happening before. that was the first time the big east tournament was canceled since its foundation in 1980. very bug deal there. but the tournament is back, and we've got a full slate of games starting later. check out the full screen right now. georgetown v. mar death, providence v. depaul. these are all on fox sports. and the top five teamings did earn that bye into the quarterfinals game, so that's why you're not seeing the villanovas, creightons and u-conns of the world. i don't know if you're a villanova fan, but we will see them play eventually, so don't you worry. steve: my daughter mary went to law school there too, so we're always behind villanova. abby, i'm a little bummed that when your dad coached the knicks for, what, five, six years? i don't ever remember being
3:37 am
invited to those parties. [laughter] >> reporter: it was a little bit less than that but, yes, you're right. i think moving forward -- steve: moving forward. all right. thank you, abbey. [laughter] all right, ainsley. ainsley: how cute is she? we love abbey. all right, the los angeles school district has reached an agreement with the teachers union, but the teachers were in hot water over this leaked social media post, and this is what it said, if you haven't herald. if you were planning any trips for spring break, please keep that off of social media. it's hard to argue that it is unsafe for in-person instruction if parents see vacation photos. here to react is dr. miriam, she is enrolled in the l.a. school district. good morning to you. >> good morning. thank you for having me. a. ainsley: what was your reaction? i can imagine my friends calling each other if we saw that post.
3:38 am
>> well, you know, i'll be honest with you, we were actually pretty, you know, we were pretty happy to see that because we are all really well aware of the fact that the teachers union, rather than focusing on getting the masks, getting the ppe, getting the preparations for the reopening were more focused on being able to posture for the political goals that they had, that they could make sure that they could stay closed as long as possible. and so even with the reopening, our worry is especially with the secondary schools that they'll be zooming for a long time to come. ainsley: it really reveals so much. but if you're, if you love your job, and we all love children, shouldn't their focus be on the kids at this point? >> well, and that is what is really disheartening. when i talk to my son, you know, the trust and the reverence that the children, that my son, his friends always had in their teachers is now certainly marred by the fact that, you know, they
3:39 am
feel like the teachers clearly were not interested in, you know, in really stepping up and opening schools. and even with the zooming there was so much of, you know, in the beginning zoom was optional. the utla didn't want to make zoom mandatory. they posted work sheets online and said you could show up during office hours if you had a question. so, absolutely, i think it was a huge disappointment. ainsley: so this was the union's post, they sent this actually to fox, the fox affiliate in l.a. we have a diverse membership if, and they're able to post their views on personal facebook pages. and in this facebook group, however utla does not monitor, nor is responsible for the content. i guess that was one person posting it. and in defense of the teachers, my mom, when she retiredded, doctor, she was in tears, not sure if this was the right decision. she taught for 33 years because
3:40 am
she loved her job so much. there are a lot of them that do want to go back, right? >> there are plenty the of teachers who want to go back, and i know them personally, and they have really, really done their part. i can't, unfortunately, say that that is the majority from what we've seen in this process because the teachers do comprise the utla, and we certainly would have expected the majority to stand up and to expect utla to take a different posture. ainsley: i wish they would. doctor, thank you so much for being on with us. >> thank you so much for having me. ainsley: [inaudible] >> we're excited that the schools are reopening. ainsley: yes. that's great news, thank you. all right, tomorrow i'm going to be speaking with parents in chicago, small business owners and a student mark coronavirus one year later. we're going to have a conversation with all of them in chicago, so watch "fox & friends" tomorrow morning for that. okay, will cain is having breakfast with friends in texas as the lone star state lifts

davidson, the commander of all u.s. forces, army, navy, marine corps, air force all across the indian ocean. he is our point man, and when he says china's capabilities are rising and rapidly, we ought to pay attention. he also said china is threatening taiwan very seriously in the near term. these are are the kind of flashpoints that we put in the novel "2034" to try and make the point that this could happen. it's really. we have to prepare. brian: admiral, how would this play out? right now they are building up rapidly. we're trying to maintain and grow our presence in the area. when this war does take place in 2034, who wins? >> you know, in the end nobody really wins a war. but let's not give away the end to the book. it's the not the apocalypse. this is not a end of the world kind of book, but it plays out in a series of escalations, brian. it starts in the south china sea
3:55 am
with u.s. destroyers sunk, fighters who are forced down over iran and then escalation goes up and up until some very dire things are happening toward the end of the novel. the key here, brian, is that we have to prepare for cyber. there's a huge cyber attack in the book, and we need to be prepared in space, creating a space force it turns out was a pretty good move by the trump administration. and thirdly, we need to be prepared for a much more assertive china that can roam the oceans of the world. that's what admiral davidson was talking about. we've got to get ready. we need a strong military deterrent if we're going to prevent this war. brian: you talk about the ladder of escalation, one would be taiwan. we've been allied the them, and china's foreign minister said this: the chinese government has no room for compromise. we urge the u.s. administration to understand the high sensitivity of the taiwan situation and completely change the dangerous practices of

2020 democrats said we will fix it. these are some of the suggestions if it does get through the house it probably -- mandatory automatic voter registration nationwide, you are registered to vote. allows voters to substitute a photo id with a sworn written statement that expands mail in voting, restores voting rights for convicted felons and encourages statehood for dc which is something they have wanted for decades but always remained elusive. what is your biggest problem the way the democrats want to redo how we vote in america? >> i disagree with every single word in hr one including the words but and the. everything about this bill is rotten to the core. it was written and held by the devil himself. this takes all sorts of decisions the federal

government has no business making, takes them away from the states, make them in washington dc by congress. apparently in an effort to ensure an institutional revolutionary democratic party of sorts that can remain in power for many decades to come. it does this by taking away these decisions. american elections have been conducted at the state and local level, they are completely flipping that principle on its head so these things can be micromanaged from washington. that is wrong. that policy is unconstitutional. brian: implements voter registration nationwide, you want everyone to vote. what is wrong with that? >> we want everyone to vote. it is up to each and every state to decide how to register voters and maintain the current list of voters in each state. he can't be done effectively
4:06 am
from washington, bad things will happen. brian: a written statement instead of voter id expands mail in voting, restores voting rights for convicted felons, who wants people in jumpsuits voting and encourages statehood for washington dc, so they get two more senators, not for the country, for the democratic party. >> back to my point, the democratic party to be the institutional revolutionary party that ends a hegemonic accounts for many decades to come. that's what the bill is about. that you has this orwellian name, being about the people but it is really about washington dc saying we are in charge, you don't get a say at the state and local level.

but they won't call it a crisis. >> do you believe there is a crisis at the border? >> the answer is no. there is a challenge at the border we are managing. >> we don't need to put labels on what we have already conveyed as challenging. let's go. >> don't want to say it is a crisis. the guy right there, retired acting ice director tom holman, they are in a pickle because joe biden during the campaign made clear if i am elected we will have open borders, make it easier to come into this country and they have a messaging problem. they say don't come but the people down south are not getting the message. >> american people, do the math, it is triple what it was a year ago under trump policies
4:19 am
and actions speak louder than words, they can say what they want to say but when you release thousands of people into the united states and with covid-19 and don't want to detain them it sends a clear message to the world so it is much louder than the words attempting to use but the things they are ignoring, based on doj data 90% of americans who claim asylum never get relief because they don't qualify. the other data is the dhs report that less than 3% of the hundreds of thousands of families already deported by immigration refused to leave, 97% stayed. they get amnesty under the biden plan. >> over the last 72 hours i heard so many people in the administration who will not call it a crisis have said we

inherited a broken system. when you look at the numbers, it seems the old system under donald trump worked at keeping people out of the country until the process legally. >> they inherit the most secure border i've seen in my 35 year career. for promises they made, doesn't take a genius to realize when you make promises of free healthcare, there is no interior enforcement, the been released as quickly as possible, we built detention centers, adult facilities, we held people and after they lost their case ice removed them. the surge went down, they are doing is the opposite now, not by accident, but by design. this is an open borders agenda and they are not hiding it well. steve: during the month of
4:21 am
february deportations and arrests fell by 60% so if you are talking 100,000 people, 60,000 people they did not deport and did not arrest and us district judge down there, judge tipton who said he noticed with his caseload change that ice used to deport felons arrested in texas for human smuggling and now they are released into the united states, sentence somebody, ice would drop them on the street in texas instead of sending them to mexico. that happened in the last month or two. >> 90% of the criminal aliens ice arrested were arrested this year, 90% are the criminals arrested and removed last year, because of the new priorities of the administration. this is the first president in the nation's history that is facilitating illegal immigration on the southern
4:22 am
border. when you say you can come to the united states and we are not going to detain you, 90% of your authority away, give amnesty and those who committed a crime, this is by design. they sold out to the progressives and we are going to lose the border, you think numbers are bad now, wait until you see a surge like we have never seen before. >> you have been a public servant for a decade and you worked for president obama, donald trump, taken apart piece by piece, have you talked to donald trump since he left office and observed what is happening on the southern border and if so how did he describe it? >> he is shocked how this new
4:23 am
administration is selling out our country. we have a right to have a sovereign nation, donald trump recognized that, 90% of these people don't leave and recognized that. that is why the remaining mexico program is one of the greatest things he did because make them wait in mexico, and if you fear prosecution from your homeland, crossing into countries -- is it about persecution or getting to the united states. the biden administration tells ice you can't do enforcement operations anymore. i think donald trump is concerned about the country, he made it clear to me and i will stay in the fight too. you are not going to shut me up because i worked for 6 different presidents and this is what they are doing.

4:32 am
cabin or gubernatorial candidate kevin faulconer, former mayor of san diego. what do you think of his speech yesterday? >> i didn't think a lot. we had more word salad and a lot of rhetoric and in california we have a governor that is botching the basement. you see this recall continue to grow with so much strength. democrats, independents, republicans, californians who want change at the top and the governor that gets results and that's not what is happening in california. >> why did you decide to run as a republican? it is such a liberal state. >> time for california come back and the fact that my record of what we do on the issues that matter to californians, it is the only big-city the reduced homelessness by double digits. we did not defund the police. i increased the budget. we talk about our economy and growing our economy and what is real is the tremendous job flight leaving california so time to have a governor that can bring the state together

>> just incredible. what we are seeing in los angeles just emboldens criminals, slap in the face to victims and victims rights and that is why you are seeing a night out cry and rightly so. jillian: what will happen with a recall of gavin newsom? >> it will be successful. the threshold is 1.5 million signatures. it is over 2 million. the deadline is next week. the tremendous momentum for the opportunity to make a change, this recall is going to happen. we will have an election in california and it will be an opportunity to bring our state together and get back doing the things we should be doing like opening our schools and not having them remain closed so i'm looking forward to being that governor and to bring our state, bring everybody back together.

>> reporter: one of the fascinating things people keep pointing out, what we've done away with these rules, mandates but people can make responsible decisions where they go and whether they wear a mask, people are free to be responsible as well. >> there's a difference between laws and mandates and we should open -- not sure governors are to have mandates where laws of not already taken place or been enforced. >> reporter: we heard texas cultural he has always been free. what the lifting of the mandate does is make the laws and mandates reflect the culture and desires of the people and i will point this out. that has attracted people to texas and florida. these are free states. watch. housing prices booming, population growing, because it is free. steve: your family friend booty is a teacher, there is no mask

4:54 am
show and he gave that opinion, 41,000 complaints evidently including a complaint from a fellow analyst, says i don't need this. is that what is going to happen? >> that is exactly what happened. what is happening is a very nasty ideology pushing their way into everything in american life and now in british life is what megan markel said was so nasty and insinuating, she said somebody in the royal family said something about the possible skin color of their baby. could be a totally an arduous remark. i wonder whether the baby will be ginger. it is possible somebody said something along those lines to harry or megan at some point. she tells oprah winfrey that this is racist, no way is that racist but she said it, now the royal family is racist.
4:55 am
the way in which police people in america with very nasty agenda are trying to push their agenda into everything in american life. it is now a part of british life. they've got the monarchy having to defend itself against totally unproved charges of racism and basically the royal family has got to do what everyone has to do in america and elsewhere. we have got to stand up to this. truth matters. prove it, show us, don't just assert it, don't just have millionaires moaning on sets in great mansions saying whoa is me because somebody in the family once said something i decided is racist. this is so so wrong. battles across america and britain have to say no, we are not playing that game.
4:56 am
>> russia and china are not going through this cancel culture. they plowed through it. i don't want their system of government but they know what the threat is out there. peers morgan was on with us a couple days ago and said this, almost predicted what happened. listen. >> people having different views, i say that as someone more liberal than not but this is cancel culture, this inability to allow or tolerate anything you don't believe your self. it is the antithesis of liberalism, the enemy of democracy and it has got to stop. steve: somebody battling on the left, people were talking back and forth, now people are canceling which means shutdown of the speech that allows ebay to take place. this is what you write about. >> reporter: two things, they will make the world incredibly boring as we have to be a lockstep, have one view on everything.
4:57 am
the second thing, it allows liars and dishonest actors to thrive. it means if you just push your narrative, america is racist, britain is racist, everything about the royal family has become racist. if you allow this to happen you about dishonest people to say things and you just have to go along with it. we cannot put up with that in america. we cannot put up with that in britain. we cannot put up with every single thing people insist on. we've got to say no. let's get to old-fashioned ideas like truth. what is your evidence and there have been times when -- let's get to old-fashioned ideal effect, not interpretation or i think this happened or i am sad about something i think
4:58 am
happened but prove it. unless you come to the public saying i have proof that something happened we shouldn't believe it. it is not the case that just because you say i feel something we all have to believe it, i feel something is not evident and it leaves us all vulnerable to dishonest people pushing their own agenda for their own often very unpleasant purposes. steve: for her to say her husband told her that, i'm not saying anything else. i will do the damage but i won't qualify it and give the evidence. it is substantial. the king or queen did not have the reputation. now has to push back against something that might not have happened. >> the queen's husband is 99,
4:59 am
the queen as a girl was training, can talk about real ugliness the royal family overseas, the commonwealth of nations is the most diverse group of countries in the world, has been exemplary of admiration and much more. here comes along this timebomb from america that goes off and detonates at the heart of the royal family, makes her husband talk about things like implicit bias training and other things, this is what happens when this ugly vengeful and very ambitious woke ideology plant itself even in the most ancient institution, destroys everything it touches. it advances nothing, doesn't
5:00 am
advance racial equality and doesn't advance anything. it advances with people trying to push it for the time being but otherwise is a destructive destructive force and i just hope in the years to come people in america and britain will say no. brian: i hope so, douglas and i have to end it there but if your publisher says no more douglas murray books and the movie house says no more booking x or y canceled actor, they have the control. you could stand up and be strong but ultimately, the people making the decisions have to show the same strength, correct? >> and we the public have to show the strength. we the public have to say that we will not have our views guided by bosses of corporations who are weak, weak, weak. brian: the liberals should realize they are coming for him. they might have shot one way but
5:01 am
the boomerang is coming back their way, eventually and you were there first. douglas murray thank you so much >> it's a great pleasure. brian: last hour starts now. >> there are more children coming across the border than we have facilities for at this point in time. >> they should be embarrassed it's an open border agenda and they're not hiding it very well. >> today the house is expected to give final approval to the $1.9 trillion covid relief bill. >> every time the federal government takes more money and prints it or borrows it it ends up hurting america's poor and middle class. ainsley: governor gavin newsom delivered his state of the state address, slamming the push to recall him. >> we're not going to change course just because of a few naysayers. >> we have a governor that is b otching, that's why you're seeing recall. brian: the commander in the pacific warning about the threat of china. >> our conventional return is actually eroding. >> i'd say it's four and a half

5:03 am
lifted today. nobody has got to wear a mask, they should follow the science but they get to decide, will. will: you're right, steve. what this reflects is the official policies of the state of texas. now, mirroring the sentiments and desires of texans. texans know how to be responsible but they are free people. texas culturally has always been free. you know, i think about the story here from bill smith's cafe here in mckinney, texas i think about what the real story is. when i grew up, this little din er, which is an institution and been here since 1956 was on a country now and now i'm looking at the window and there's a t-mobile across the street. there are people moving not just to mckinney texas, collin county , texas at-large in absolute thousands, and thousands upon thousands. why is that? it's because the policies of places like florida and texas, the low taxes, the freedom, reflects the desires of people and they're moving. they're voting with their feet and choosing to live in "free states. " look at florida, look at south
5:04 am
dakota, look at texas and you'll find your future leaders and as i talk to the diners here at bill smith cafe every one of them reflected that and that they love the breakfast and been coming here for 20, 30 years sometimes i want to show you this we talk about covid and fear, and driving decision-making here is one of bill smith's bumper stickers. i live with fear and danger every day but sometimes i take her to bill smith's cafe. different kind of fear, but also driving decision-making but a better decision to come and have breakfast. i'll be talking to these diners later in the hour. steve: great. all right will, thank you very much. deep from the heart of texas. speaking of which? brian: home game for will cain and we're also talking home for congressman dan crenshaw, gop congressman making real impact. congressman i get two things. number one, people were quick to jump down your governor's throat when he lifted the mask mandate. 18 other states have lifted the mask mandate and i sense there was a degree of glee when you guys got hit with that
5:05 am
freeze and your infrastructure was unprepared for it. did you pick-up both those things? >> i did. the people are jealous of freedom and one of the unfortunate realities of modern america is we're sort of dividing into free states versus non-free states, and as you just indicated on your show, people are moving with their feet. they want to be free, right? a lot of people are enticed by the democrats notions and sort of lip service to compassion and arguments but in the end they want to pursue their happiness as the declaration of independence gives us the right to, so, look. you would have thought that texas made masks illegal, based on the unhinged response from so many leftists on twitter talking about murders and killers and look, you're siding with the virus. no more vaccines for texas is what they said. this is really disgusting and it's disgisting on a fundamental level. i think you should still wear a mask if you can't socially distance and you're not vaccinated but i don't want to fine or jail you if you don't,
5:06 am
right? this isn't that hard of a concept, guys. there has to be a contract between the governed and government, and there has to be trust involved and what we've lost over the last year and especially because our public health officials have not been totally honest with us, our government officials have made emotional decisions instead of logical ones and that trust has been broken. lockdowns don't work. they don't work. that's why i introduced the unlock downs now act because it's based on a premise the science says there is no co- relation between slowing the spread and shelter in place orders locking down businesses, it doesn't work. it's a virus. it spreads. it's unfortunate, but it does, and i think democrats need to listen to the science, listen to the data, and actually absorb that information and stop hurting people. steve: well lockdowns don't work , except at the southern border, and they seem to work during the trump years, but now with joe biden, you know, there is this gigantic surge. they won't call it, they call it a challenge, but congressman, i
5:07 am
think, you know, the messaging from the white house right now is don't come now. i think they want them to come now, because it's messy, but ultimately, it's going to get things going so that they can get to what they want which is, as people in your party say, open borders. >> yeah, look. i'm done trying to read their intentions any other way. it's very very concerning. every step of the democrat's take whether in legislation or in this administration is meant to have more illegal immigration , so we want completely different things here , and this is a very sharp left turn for the democrat parties over the last 10 years. it's very unfortunate. look, there is a crisis on the border. now, biden may not actually like that. they might want a more steady, even-handed flow over the next few years, but there's a crisis. thousands of people i was just down there last weekend, our border patrol is overwhelmed, and the fact that they're overwhelmed processing people,
5:08 am
being bus drivers being daycare workers guess who foots the bill for this , texans. texas dps spends hundreds of millions of dollars a year trying to secure our border because while border patrol is taken off the line they can't patrol the border because they have to deal with hundreds and hundreds of people bringing their kids across the river, well then texas dps has to actually patrol the river and get in helicopters and patrol there and go after drug smuggler s and they had 600 pursuits in just one area over the course of last year. these are really dangerous times for them, so actually just introduced a bill that would pay texas a bipartisan bill by the way that pays texas back for the billions of dollars that we have spent on border operations that are a federal responsibility. ainsley: oh, wow. what are the chances of getting that money? that sounds fair. >> it does sound fair. do you know what? we're already spending 1.9 trillion on a bunch of other nonsense, we'll be adding some money to the border might be a good investment.
5:09 am
ainsley: i want to ask you when you went down to the border i just want fathom letting my child go. i know maybe they come to dangerous situations, alone, and so many unaccompanied kids. what are their stories? have you heard any of those stories? how do their parents allow them to do that? i understand they know it's a better life in america but what are you hearing? >> look it's heartbreaking. we have to talk about the compassionate side of this. it also demonstrates what an amazing country this is, that you can just tell your child, your only child, perhaps, that if you just walk across that border you'll probably be okay because our country is that good okay, meghan markle it really is that good, and here is the thing they come across, they might have a cousin, they might have an uncle, oftentimes they might have somebody that they think will sponsor them, a friend, or something on the other side but it's completely overwhelming to our border patrol. this is completely unsustainable
5:10 am
when trump was getting a bunch of crap for the kids in cages thing and now biden is doing the exact same thing, look the lesson here is it's really really hard to deal with thousands and thousands of minor s whether they are with an adult or whether they are alone , all at once. in fact, it's near impossible to do this well. it's a completely unsustainable situation. the reason this is happening is because biden completely reversed the trump adminitration policies of remain in mexico, and the asylum cooperation agreements with the northern triangle countries. these were our silver bullet. these created a disincentive to come because we said look, if you're going to claim asylum, and only about 10% of people meet the legal standard for asylum, then go to the local consolate. go to the local embassy and wait here in mexico, we will adjudicate your claim, but you can't just come in here, get a bus ticket anywhere, and then, you know, not show up for your deportation hearing when it's shown that your asylum claim, you know, isn't valid. that's unfair, and you know who it's unfair to? legal immigrants for one, and
5:11 am
it's also unfair to millions of people around the world who can't just walk across the border, who have truly valid asylum claims. we're clogging up our system for people who really need it and it's not fair or moral. brian: when you talk about comprehensive immigration reform , it starts with border security, and you had money for the wall. it was already, its already been spent and now you're paying penalties know the to build it. then you turn around and make it easier maybe for these countries people to get here legally but you're saying that people from triangle countries are more important than people from nigeria, from zambia, from costa rica, from norway, from around the world. you're saying they're more important so that's who, and brazil. that's who this should be about. we could only bring in so many people. you could do it legally or illegally. don't think you're going to come back and talk to republican s about immigration reform when you refuse to enforce the border. we've seen this movie since 1985 >> yeah, no that's exactly
5:12 am
right and we have to foot the bill for it and look it's reversible. this is a completely solvable problem. you have to actually -- brian: want to. >> the cooperation agreements with our partners, which is mexico, honduras, guatemala, and they want to work with us. brian: there should be somebody there now, dan. there should be somebody there now, neating with all these three countries. >> yeah, exactly but the biden administration doesn't want to. look, they have a plan in place, they've already released it and it does involve giving illegal immigrants citizenship and voting rights. why? because they want them to vote for them. that's a cynical proposition but i don't know how else to interpret it. i think it's true. steve: speaking of voting later today the house could actually vote on that $1.9 trillion covid relief bill, and nancy pelosi, i've got news for you, mr. crenshaw, she can see through what you republicans are trying to do. listen to the sound bite and then we'll get your opinion.
5:13 am
>> i'm so excited, i just can't hide it. all of it, excellent. all of it fair. all of it an opportunity for us to grow the economy by investing in the people for the people. for our republican colleagues who they say no to the vote and they show up at the ribbon cuttings or the presentation. steve: so she says republicans are going to vote no when it counts, but then, you know, when people come out and see folks at the ribbon cutting and the mall opening you republicans are going to take credit for all that dough. >> well the thing is this money isn't being invested in you, or your economy, and look, if you're really happy about getting a $1,400 check, again, imagine that, right? giving free money to people is popular. i get that but here is the thing it's costing you $5,700 give or take and if you're not paying
5:14 am
for it, your kids are. look if this is really as popular as the democrats say it is we're in a lot of trouble as a country. it means that we have fully given into this notion that we should be bribed by our government for false promises, and that is not an american thing to do. we have to collectively stop doing that. it's going to destroy the next generation. its already threatening to cause massive inflation. here is the other thing about this bill. there's already trillions, hundreds of billions, about a trillion dollars of unspent from past relief bills. there is money in the ppp fund that could go to small businesses if you change the standards of how they get it that be smart. half of this money won't even be spent until 2022 or later. it is an absolute lie for them to say that this is an emergency relief bill that goes and invest s directly into people. it is for a lot of different nonsense that has nothing to do with covid. only 9% has to do with covid healthcare and 1% is for vaccine distribution. these people are just lying and
5:15 am
we can't keep falling for it as americans. we cannot keep believing this falsehood that the size of your heart is attached to dollar signs, right? and whoever is willing to spend the most money of your money, by the way, is somehow more moral. this is simply not true. ainsley: i think that's what a lot of people are upset with. they don't mind the 9%. they don't even mind the checks that's wonderful for the lives of other people but it's all the extra pork that's just thrown in there and they can do it because everyone's getting a check, you know? brian: we're conserving native american languages it's an emergency. everyone's forgetting them for $10 million, we'll remember them. fantastic. >> and look, we fell for this too as conservatives. i remember in december, i remember a lot of people wanting $2,000 checks but it doesn't mean it's good policy. there is no free money and here is the thing. those free checks are going to go to well over 100 million people who never lost their job at all and just working from home so is this really what we need to be doing? is this really good policy?
5:16 am
no i don't think it is. steve: all right dan crenshaw joining us from d.c., dan, thank you very much. >> good to be with you all. steve: quarter after the top of the hour. jillian? jillian: good morning let's begin with this a tampa police officer is killed while protecting others from a wrong way driver. master patrol officer jessie mad son was a marine veteran who served 16 years on the force. the police chief says madson veered his cruiser into the driver's path to prevent the driver from hitting anyone else on the road. their cars collided killing both he and the driver. he believes behind a wife and three children. >> the attack on pop star lady g aga's dog walker last month may have been part of a gang initiation. tmz reporting a string of similar attacks in la leading police to believe that they maybe connected, as the case remains under investigation, authorities are reportedly advising lady gaga against giving the $500,000 reward to the women who found her dogs until she's officially cleared

the way we set you up and that is to talk a little bit about the press reaction to the meghan markle/harry interview with oprah. piers morgan quit his job on the air yesterday because he had been highly critical of meghan, and there he was talking about how if the woke crowd thinks she ' very canceled me they've got another thing coming to them what's going on? >> it was quite a dramatic thing for him to do. he's like i'm going to storm off set. you guys never stormed off set. i don't think we have ever had anyone storm off set. if he feels so strongly, i think that sitting there maybe answering more of those questions would have worked but here is the other thing. piers morgan absolutely knows how to get his name out there, and he will continue to get a lot of attention, and what's interesting is so the queen's statement i thought was very perfectly written. it didn't really allow for there to be a second or a third iteration of that story, but the story is going to live because now you have this battle
5:24 am
between piers morgan and meghan markle and there's nothing that the british tabloids like more than that. the other thing i was going to think about with this so one of the things they said about piers morgan storming off set was that the channel had received 41,000 negative comments and apparently that's a lot for them and i was thinking gosh, here, we call that a wednesday morning. >> [laughter] ainsley: that's exactly right. i was surprised that he felt the need that he had to do that, because he was really protecting the royal family living in the uk, he was on their side it seemed, and he was still getting canceled. >> but if you look at some of the initial snap polls and it was similar here but it matters more there to them that older people in britain were definitely on the royal family side and thinking that meghan and harry had done the wrong thing. younger people in britain the majority of them thought that meghan and harry had good points to make and they were up set about thick things so you

can imagine the generational split is something exacerbated moreso by this. brian: i thought it was irresponsible to say somebody in the royal family said it which means on everybody's houses and he says i refuse to talk about it except to make the accusation douglas murray was on with us. i know you're a fan of his. he said this is exactly what's going on here and it's infected there. watch. >> american culture seems to now be going around the world, and they are epitomized in the form of meghan markle, and now we see the example of piers morgan simply saying something that a lot of people in britain think, which is that meghan markle was at the very least exaggerating, most likely, just lying. i never thought i'd have to defend piers morgan but here we are. >> that's what happens in cancel culture. you end up defending people that you're like wow i never thought i would def defend them. the hope is that they would defend you too, but that's not
5:26 am
necessarily how we see any of this happening, and i do think that part of it is generational. you see this happening over and over, but the only way to stand up against it is that everybody does it. greg gutfeld talks about sharing the risk and that you have to defend people's rights and free speech even if you disagree whatever. brian: i have not heard of him, gutfeld, doesn't ring a bell but i'll move on because your book is out called " everything will be okay" and one of the excerpts dana is this i want you to expand on this. choosing to be happy to be peaceful to be loved that really is up to you. you're in the driver's seat now. which way are you going? and you're trying to give advice for young up and coming women who you've had a chance to interact with because you decided in 2009 to mentor women here and everywhere and these are some of your conclusions. what do you mean by your first quote? >> well, basically that is the summary of the book really, because i have a passion for mentoring. i find that young women today,
5:27 am
they are exceedingly talented, very ambitious, they are educated, they got a lot of responsibility ahead of them a lot of great opportunity but they have anxiety and one of the things you see is their worries are holding them back from opportunities, so what i've tried to do in the book is say here is some tips that you can use right now today, to make your day at the office more productive and for you to hopefully be more setup for promotion and raises and new opportunities. steve: absolutely. >> there's also something really important which is you have to learn how to enjoy your life at the same time, so i provide some ideas, i have something in there i love called the serenity checklist that i hope everybody can check out because it can really reduce that anxiety and help them turn that into fuel that can help them in their future. ainsley: what's one of the things on that checklist? >> what you do is basically you write all your worries on a piece of paper in one column and the next column you say do i have control over this or not and the third come, if you do have control over it, you start making an action plan for how
5:28 am
you'll deal with it and it gives you a way to accept the things that you cannot change, the courage to change the things you can and the wisdom to know the difference. take that out, put it in your pocket, walk around with it. steve: well the advice works. you know, our families have been together, you have offered advice to my daughters mary and sally, which they have taken. for somebody watching, for one of the young women watching, how do you know if you have made the right decision so far about your career path because during the pandemic, a lot of people have been thinking am i in the right business? >> so there's another exercise in there called the whiteboard incident that i describe and it was when i was working in pr in san diego but i really wanted to work for president george w. bush, and my husband had me list all of the things i wanted to do in a job, and all of the things i didn't want to do in a job and he signed a numerical value to those and added it up, it was very clear i should go back to washington d.c. and do anything, obviously that then helps lead
5:29 am
me to the next place where i ended up in the white house. we are at our one year anniversary of the two week slow down of the spread, but now people are not just working from home, they are living at work. steve: yeah. >> its been very overwhelming for a lot of people so i have tips in there for how you can continue to try to get ahead in your career even if you aren't in the office, if you don't have that time that you were hoping to have and then all of a sudden everything changed. steve: dana let me get this straight. you had the whiteboard before karl rove? >> [laughter] peter did, actually, yes it's true. it's true. karl has perfected it you have to hand it to him. ainsley: i heard you yesterday talking about your book and you were talking about don't gossip at work when we all go back to work don't gossip because you said the bosses find out about it and then you don't get that promotion down the road. >> absolutely you have to remove yourself from negative people, you fall in with the wrong crowd like that guy we talked about at 5:00. brian: that's true. whoever he is.
5:30 am
is he full time? we'll have to see. we'll learn more about him. until he gets another hour, meanwhile, dana, it's one of rare things for authors these days to have a live event. you're doing it in jacksonville. i'm lucky enough to host the interview you bring out some of these stories at the florida theatre in jacksonville right now, march 20, go to florida for tickets. they are going quick, and if you can pull this off this will open up the avenue for other authors, so make sure -- >> i'm the lucky one. brian: make sure you pull this off. >> i thank you for reading the book and talking about it and also recommending it to your daughters, granddaughters i really think it can help a lot of young people and i look forward to being in florida at an in-person event. ainsley: dana be careful going on the road with this guy. brian: meet her at the theatre. ainsley: you know what i mean. we did it in atlanta one-time and we were drinking beers talking about our books, it was actually one of my favorite times. steve: like the way we did the show. brian: show me the bad side of
5:31 am
that. meanwhile, senator marco rubio, lt. governor dan patrick of texas, and thanks so much, dana, congratulations. >> thank you. steve: you've heard so much about her brand new book, " everything will be okay" you can order it right now at amazon , barns and nobel, walmart , wherever you get your books it's number one. ainsley: a guide to life for young women, buy it if you're a mom. steve: indeed. ainsley: or a dad. steve: meanwhile 8:30 in the east today the big east tournament returns with names at madison square garden we'll talk to fox sports announcer tim brandeau coming up ainsley. ainsley: that is where we'll find fox nation's abbey hornasek with a preview of today's matchup.

5:36 am
steve: today the big east tournament returns with games at madison square gardens that's where fox nation host joins us out on the street, with more on today's matchups and finally, we're getting back to march madness. >> [laughter] that, we are, steve. it's all very exciting, and it's all going on, right here behind me at madison square garden. obviously, so many iconic moment s have happened at this arena. you mentioned to me earlier taking peter to games growing up ones that i was not invited to unfortunately, but you know, i think it's really great that we're returning, and we all know what happened last year, unfortunately, the game and the rest of the tournament was canceled after the first half of the first quarterfinal game, crate on was playing st. john and st. john was up by three and
5:37 am
this happened. take a listen. >> here we are and everything is canceled. this is an unprecedented time for sports and unprecedented time for really everybody in the world, and unfortunately, there will be no basketball here in madison square garden. >> yeah, unprecedented is a great word to use there. this was the first time the big east tournament was canceled, since its foundation in 1980 but do you know what, steve we're back, the tournament will run from today, march 10 through saturday march 13, to ultimately decide who gets that automatic bid to the big dance that starts on march 18 and we've got a full slate of games today you can take a look at the full screen we are putting up right now game one georgetown vs. marquette and then xavier vs. butler, providence vs. depaul and something to note here the top five teams have buys into the quarterfinals, and steve, i know i threw a lot of information and days and times at you but the biggest takeaway is that it's march, it's madness and you can find it all on fox
5:38 am
sports. steve: you can indeed, thank you very much, great job today. our next guest is going to be in the booth calling today's first round games, fox sports tim brando joins us right now. tim, good morning to you. >> good morning, steve it's great to be with all of you, and you said the booth. we will be really in a booth normally in basketball you're on the floor, this year, we really are elevated, and so you're spot on with that. steve: well you know, and we just saw you, you were half way through a game last year when they pulled the plug on it. that had to have been a head scratcher. >> well not exactly and i'll tell you why. the night before, we had the rudy golberg situation with the nba and tom hanks and the coach at iowa state had gotten physically ill on the floor and so i was a little curious as to whether i was going to get a call telling me the games were called off but we didn't get that and all of the other conferences were ready to play, just as we were, but
5:39 am
their commissioners called the games immediately before the tip, right after the lineups we decided to play on and i understand it. this is a basketball-only league , the big east, and they were following the recommendations of the local area, and they decided to play, and we got lost in the game so at the time, when they called it , i was a little disappointed that we didn't finish it but at the same time we had to have our ideas our focus on the bigger picture and sometimes the environment around you gets in the way of a sporting event and certainly, an international pandemic was coming and we were aware of that before we got underway. steve: fast forward to today as we look back at tournament champs over the last couple of years, in 2020, canceled during the covid but then from 2017 through 2019, you had villanova, villanova, villanova and before that, seaton hall. one of the things about college basketball, and i think it's the
5:40 am
most exciting of all the sports, is because you've got these young players, they're not pros, they are so excited and they are just out there and you never know what's going to happen. >> no, you don't, and the second season means this. you know, abbey in your earlier report was commenting on the top seeds getting buys into the quarterfinals. that's true, but particularly in the covid era, there's a level of balance and also expect the unexpected because you just don't know how 18-22-year-olds are going to respond, steve and for instance today, marquette is playing in the opening round in a matchup with georgetown. now these two teams are really talented and very gifted but they struggled some this year, and had long covid breaks. the winner of this game will get villanova who just lost last week their starting point guard and then just days ago lost their number two scoring option to an ankle injury, so, villanova comes in here limping
5:41 am
and somewhat crippled and the side of the bracket that marquette and georgetown are on could open up for them with the potential of beating villanova and the skies the limit. st. john's another team i'd keep an eye on and they too beat villanova earlier this year and they play tomorrow against seat on hall and they come in tomorrow riding hot and connecticut is playing better basketball than anybody in the league. steve: it's wide open let's see what happens tim brando check out all of the tournament plays with the tipoff on fox sports 1, all the action begins today on fox sports 1 and the fox sports app. mr. brando thank you very much for getting up early with us in new york city. >> thank you, steve. steve: thank you, sir. 18 minutes before the top of the hour on this went. up next, saved by a slice. dave portnoy's pizza review saved a restaurant in new jersey dave and the owners join us live , coming up, next and from our friends at fox bet, download the fox bet super 6 app and play for a chance to win 10,000 bucks all you got to do is pick six

5:47 am
restaurant join us now, with the man who tasted their pizza and man, did he like it, dave portnoy of barstool dave? first off, what made you go to new jersey and pick out this store, because they just told me they did not know you were coming. >> yeah, well we never tell the people or places that we're coming, but you know, they reached out and suggested to come and we had recommendations but i tried everywhere. that was our thousandth pizza review so i've been everywhere in the tristate area and it was just their turn i guess kind of random. brian: and you started doing this , dave, because you came to new york and you hear we have great pizza so you said let me find out for myself? >> sort of. i actually got into a debate like four or five years ago with a co-worker if you'd eat one food the rest of your life what would it be and i said pizza and he said burritos, so like the breakfast burrito look and we did it so i ate pizza for a month straight and started
5:48 am
scoring them, and because i was eating so much and it just kind of caught on but that's where it started. brian: kind of caught on? tell me what this did for your business. gabrielle you start. >> i always wanted to tell you, and you really changed our life. you just, our business, just took off and to see the smile on my dad and my uncle, it was the best 40th anniversary present we could ever ask for. you are the real deal. the barstool is the real deal. i mean, we have a three hour wait line. the day after dave left, we hit 645 orders and we've never saw anything like that before and my dad said wow, this is like the 1980s again. i said dad, i told you. dave, he's like god. he's unbelievable. the followers are from all over the world, and they're askings
5:49 am
every day, i get messages to ship your pizza. i'm like we're trying we're trying to do everything and i want to perfect it and we will never forget what you did for us and i thank you from all of us here. brian: what was it like before dave got there? >> definitely wasn't the same rodeo we were used to the last 40 years. it was definitely new obstacles everyday. we have a big facility here, we survived on a lot of people walking into our doors, so it was very tough situation for us, me and my cousin, young kids into the business. we had to take control of, you know, the wheel and totally adapt to everything and change our whole entire business to take on delivery, we had a full bar here so it's all new stuff to us and we take this like a game and we're not going to stop it. >> we're going to fight. brian: absolutely, you did
5:50 am
something i guess someone's ordering pizza now for breakfast did you know the power of your pallete, did you know the power of that taste, that mouth of yours, dave? >> yeah, you know, i don't want to sound like an egotistical jerk but i did. that's a huge score, an 8.9 is a monster score i love the pizza but there's countless stories even before the pandemic. if i give a big score, it changes how that pizza operates and to the point some locals sometimes get mad because it's like little hidden gems that you can no longer just waltz in, but yeah, people you know what it is i've given bad scores so a lot of food critics and reviews they will only give everything good. i don't. when i give a really good score it means something, and it does change the pizza so i know when an 8 comes out, that that's going to change whatever score or place that is. brian: and dave, the thing is, that means it's actually great
5:51 am
pizza. that's who people want. we want great pizza. if you would, dave, can you update us on the barstool fund? i understand it continues to grow. you got $36 million, 221,000 supporters and you've already helped over 300 businesses through the last year, this terrible pandemic that we've been through. this has continued to grow. is it continuing to be rewarding for you? >> yeah, i mean, anytime you get off on these facetime calls i do with an owner we had one yesterday, and a guy just broke down, you could see how much it meant to him. it makes it so worth it and gratifying and hopefully, things start to open up. i'm in chicago now, and they are at 50% capacity and 1:00 a.m. curfew so things hopefully are starting to move in the right direction and we can put it behind us but until then, yeah, we'll continue to do whatever we can. brian: gabrielle so to meet him
5:52 am
in person is it like the character you thought he was on television? same guy? >> being in the restaurant business, and we've been bar stool fans for many years so you see these videos on facebook every day, you never think that a guy like him is going to walk through these doors, but yeah, i did lose it. i lost my mind when i saw him, and it's just all emotion because you know, i see him and he stepped to the plate and i just -- brian: i think we're losing your audio a little but we got your sentiment. listen, you earned it, you do a great job. you told everyone what great pizza is and you did a great public service dave portnoy and listen, the barstool fund is still going people are really hurting. in new york they are only open up 35% and you can't live on that. dave final pitch for the fund? >> you know, if you have money to donate and a little spare change obviously it's tough for everybody but we get it
5:53 am
right to the small businesses and we'll continue to try to help them as long as this things going. brian: all right and thanks so much, guys. go check out gabrielle and gisep pe's pizza the calabri a restaurant in new jersey, dave always great to talk to you thanks so much. >> thank you, welcome to our family. brian: all right, that's great so let's open it up now, let's put up all three boxes so we, together, can toss out to somebody very important. steve: that pizza is in livingston, new jersey. now let's head back to the lone star state where today, restrictions are being lifted covid-wise. will cain, who is the dave portnoy of diners, is doing breakfast with friends at bill smith cafe in mckinney, and he's wearing a 10-gallon hat. will: [laughter] just the kind of business bill smith's cafe that barstool and dave are saving, so let me show you 100% capacity, this is

freedom here, free to conduct business and i was introducing you this is frank, first of all, frank you were telling me if i remember your words correctly, when you look state-by-state, those that are had the highest infection rates and those that are not is brain dead to have locked down. >> yes, it's really to continue doing the wrong thing, that we, here in texas, we probably closed down a little too tight. governor abbott has changed. you look at new york and california, they have stuck with the lockdown process. desantis in florida left his state very wide open at a high percentage of at-risk people, and performed well. will: performed well, the economy is open, and a criminal defense attorney, talking about doing well and you're saying empower people, makeup your own mind and then trust the people. >> that's right, assess the situation and think for yourself , like rush limbaugh wanted us to do.

5:56 am
it's about time is what these gentlemen say in mckinney, texas , bill smith cafe, we'll send it back to you guys in new york. steve: awesome. ainsley: thank you so much we love those folks down in texas that was cool. brian: all right, so, that was great to check in with will. more fox & friends in just a moment. >> ♪ i'm on top of the world ♪ . an air force veteran made of doing what's right, not what's easy. so when a hailstorm hit, usaa reached out before he could even inspect the damage. that's how you do it right. usaa insurance is made just the way martin's family needs it with hassle-free claims, he got paid before his neighbor even got started. because doing right by our members, that's what's right. usaa. what you're made of, we're made for. ♪ usaa ♪
