3:04 am
and what he has tasked her with doing as you look at them inside the state dining room yesterday in the white house yesterday, is she is -- her portfolio is going to be to stop the problem at the southern border. and by the way "the washington post" this morning referred to it as a crisis. so that is some progress. also, she need to establish a partnership with mexico and el salvador and guatemala and honduras and try to fix the root cause of why so many people from there are coming here. luckily, he, joe biden, has put the vice president in charge of this, pause she knows that the border is no laughing matter. watch. >> do you plan to visit the border? >> um, not today. [laughter] but i have before and i'm sure i will again. >> i have asked her, the vp today, pause she is most qualified person to do it, to lead our efforts with mexico and
3:05 am
the northern triangle. and the countries that help, that are going to need help in stemming the movement of so many folks stemming the migration to our southern border. rachel: vice president harris has said repeatedly her goal to take these unaccompanied children out of the custody of our border patrol and put them into the custody of hhs, health and human services. and that includes putting them on to -- into civic centers and also on to military bases. there have been documents released showing the initial request to joint base san antonio in lack land, fort bliss and el paso. so this is how they are going to deal with this problem. governor doug ducey from arizona, my home state, says that joe biden couldn't have picked a worse person to put in charge of this problem and is he
3:06 am
a border state governor and here is why he thinks she is a bad choice. >> vice president kamala harris has been put in charge of border security. she is about the worst possible choice that one could make. at no point in her career has she given any indication that she considers the border a problem or a serious threat. if president biden's intent was to show that he is taking this issue seriously, he has really done the exact opposite here. he has completely trivialized this issue by putting someone in charge who flat out just doesn't care. will: joe biden knows kamala harris' experience as attorney general of california. steve: a sanction area state. will: as her qualifications to handle this border crisis. he talked about her enforcing laws when it comes to
3:07 am
criminality in california. never shown seriously in enforcing border laws. she has compared ice to the k can k. so it will be interesting putting someone in charge of a problem that looks like this now. 16500 unaccompanied children right now in both hhs and border patrol custody. with that kind of outlook on what the border and our enforcers might be with someone who compares ice to kkk, it will be interesting to see how she handles this crisis. steve: sure. keep in mind in 2019, she said when she was running for president, and now she is vice president, she said if i'm elected i will release those kids from cages. actually, the facility that you are looking at right there on wednesday, that is the facility -- that is where they actually took the press yesterday for the sanitized press tour. they did not take the kids to the facility in donna, texas. and ted cruz said yesterday true
3:08 am
transparency would to be open the donna facility to the press that is at 1556% capacity. the reason he says that a number of senator will be going there tomorrow. the kids at the khanna facility they go to bed hungry. they have only showered one time in seven days. they are forced to sleep on the floor. haven't seen sunlight in days. of the 756 kid there, 108 have code. have -- covid. not only are the conditions terrible it is a super spreader. they're trying to figure out where can we put these kids somewhere in america once they get over covid? rachel: steve, what's interesting the daily mail is reporting foster parent in california are receiving phone calls saying hey, i know you have some foster kids, can you take some more? and so the foster parents all tried to call each other and figure out what's going on and sure enough there is a surge of
3:09 am
these children -- remember, she said out of cbp and into hhs. remember, our foster care services are already strained because touring covid we have seen an increase in sexual assault, domestic violence, and increase in opioid. we have our own opioid crisis. so our federal government is now turning its attention towards a problem that they created and away from american children who aren't in school, who are in these strained social services. it's actually incredible. steve: rachel, the amazing thing about that daily mail story because i saw it, usually the foster par parents are asked cod you possibly take up to six kids. think about it. can you imagine six brand new kids at your house that you have got take caref? rachel: i can tell you it's hard. steve: you okay you have got about 15 kids. they detail one family who has said, listen, we are having a crisis right now. could you possibly take 26 kids?
3:10 am
will: really? steve: 26 kids? will: with a situation like this, it might be one you need to take seriously. you wouldn't ignore questions about it. you wouldn't joke about it. that's not the case. watch. >> now we're going to get down to business here and -- ron, who do i turn this over to? >> thank you very much, mr. president. i think it's time for our friends in the press to leave though. thank you, guys. >> mr. president, [inaudible] >> children on the border facility. >> at the border, mr. president? >> mr. president. >> thank you very much. >> press conference tomorrow sir. >> the press conference. [laughter] steve: now, that's funny. what press conference? so the press conference is going to be today at 1:15. you know, the extraordinary thing about this white house, and they haven't had a formal press conference thus far. but what's crazy about it is they announced it nine days ago. which you never do. you usually just wake up in the morning in the white house press
3:11 am
office says hey we are going to have a press conference today. a lot can happen. keep in mind nine days ago when they scheduled, this he was going to take a victory lap on hey, look, we passed a $2 trillion coronavirus thing. in the nine days sense, suddenly people are going to be asking him about hey, north korea is firing off missiles, hey, what about the back-to-back shootings? hey what about the crisis at our southern border? what's the deal? why did you fall up the stairs three times on air force one a couple of days ago? are you okay? and when are you going to release your medical records which you promised to do two years ago? these are the questions he is now going to face rather than hey, thanks for the check. will: so many important questions, i think it's worth mentioning. rachel you i can't understand what he is saying behind that mask. rachel: isn't everybody tested and vaccinated around him? steve: they are not. will: will he wear that mask in the press conference today when it's so hard to understand him a behind the mask. i wonder whether or not he will wear that mask.
3:12 am
so many important questions to answer and we will need clear answers. rachel: joe concha says really it's up to the press? can we count on them to ask the right questions? here he is. >> if the president did this, say, four weeks in like his predecessor did president trump instead of waiting five weeks later, nine weeks, in i don't think you would see all the hype around an event, carley, that plays to his worst attributes in terms of being a president, that is speaking extemporaneously outside of a teleprompter taking tough questions. he's going to be like a boxer going into a big match without training or without sparring. >> the question is will the press do its job here, carley, in asking tough questions, particularly concerning the border, and following up? steve: i was talking to our white house correspondent who used to live upstairs at my house, last night. peter doocy will be in attendance. it starts in earnest about 1:15
3:13 am
this afternoon. the big question is, you know, is it going to be that deal where he has got a list and he is only going to ask the people on the list the questions as it was in the campaign and the transition? stay tuned, we will find out all together today at 1:15 a. will: all right. we will be watching, turn to jeff paul in boulder, colorado, first court appearance for the suspect. >> ahmaud alissa making his first appearance to the world since investigators say he came to this grocery store and shot and killed 10 people. the that will be a big focus how this investigation moves forward today. for this community, their focus continues to be on honoring the lives of the victims.
3:14 am
>> holding candles, more than 500 people at times stood in silence mourning the loss to their community. earlier in the day, crowds also paid tribute specifically to officer eric talley who was first on seen. police and firefighters lined the road as they watched the procession take his body to a funeral home. we are hearing from the family of ricky olds, the store manager at kings soopers just 25 years old. her uncle robert old says there is a hole in their family that will never truly be filled. >> there's a hole. there is a hole in our family that won't be filled. i mean, we try to fill it with memories. now that's tough. >> the suspect, 21-year-old ahmad alissa will be in court later this morning. authorities reportedly raided his family's home where they lived early tuesday morning.
3:15 am
but today will basically be a chance for him to hear the pending charges and have his rights heard, alissa currently faces 10 charges of first degree murder and coming up in two hours during our 8:00 a.m., you can learn on how you can help out the family of the fallen officer, will, steve, rachel? steve: a lot of people would like to do that. jeff, before you go, do we know if he bought that gun legally? >> it's certainly, according to authorities, it seems to point that way. we don't know the exact details of that. what we do know is, i believe it was on march 16th when he purchased the gun. we don't each know if that's the gun that was used in -- reportedly used in accused crime he is accused of. a lot of details to be hard out. we will learn them over the next coming weeks and month as this case progresses. will: thank you so much, jeff. rachel: thank you, jeff. will: over to jillian for more

♪ rachel: embattled new york governor andrew cuomo is accused of giving his family special access to covid-19 tests at the start of the pandemic when things were really bad. will: ashley strerm has the latest in this new report, good morning. >> good morning, guys. the "times" union first reporting governor cuomo more or less let his family skip the line when it came to testing. that's a violation of new york's constitution which bars state officials from using their position to gain privilege for themselves or others. cnn anchor chris cuomo and his family the governor's mother and at least one of his sisters allegedly got priority code testing. a senior adviser to cuomo called and said the allegations, quote, insincere efforts to rewrite the past. meanwhile state lawmakers voted to repeal immunity protections granted to healthcare facilities. this is just the latest scandal to hit the elm battalioned governor. just yesterday cuomo sparred with reporters over concerns for two staffers still working for
3:24 am
his office who accused the democrat of shower. but when asked to respond to critics who say he can no longer do his job, this is what cuomo had to say. >> it's clearly not true. the reality is the exact opposite. there are always multiple situations to deal with. >> today marks one year since cuomo instructed nursing homes to accept covid-positive residents. back to you guys. steve: thank you for the very latest from the newsroom. lee zeldin said this is another reason why cuomo has got to go. this is very embarrassing for cnn because you have got one of their top anchors, chris cuomo who now it has been revealed jumped the line because his governor brother was able to get him some testing early. apparently "the washington post" spoke to the strategic communications at cnn said we generally do not get involved in the medical decisions of our
3:25 am
employees obviously for hipaa reasons. it's not surprising early days of a once in a century global pandemic when chris was showing symptoms and concerned about possible spread, he turned to anyone he could for advice and assistance as any human being would. well, actually he didn't turn to anybody. he turned to his brother, the governor, who gave everybody in his family the easy pass lane to testing, which was impossible for all the rest of us to get. but, if your last name is cuomo, apparently it's easier to get an appointment and in some cases the people actually came to their houses to give them the test. rachel: wow, kind of an interesting story because you think of chris cuomo. we have seen videos of him lifting weights and massive barbells and cutting in line in front of grandma's. it's kind of a bad look. >> steve: embarrassing. rachel: that press little release comment from cnn sound like chris wrote it.
3:26 am
steve: it did. and, you know, keep in mind, it started about a year ago, and even though it was clearly a conflict of interest for chris cuomo to be covering his brother, he did it for months until just recently when suddenly the allegations are such that cnn said, do you know what? chris, you can't talk about your brother anymore and he put out that statement. will. will: that's absolutely right and, of course, this was in the middle of the pandemic cuomo comedy hour on cnn. watch this. >> i called mom, she said i was her favorite. >> i can't believe you are lying to my audience. have you blown the credibility of the entire interview. >> you have always been the meatball of the entire family. >> do you think you are an attractive person now because you are single and ready to mingle. >> some say i shouldn't come on this show because you harass me. >> too much accountability? can't take it. >> is it true that this was the swab that the nurse was actually using on you and disappeared so
3:27 am
that in scale this was the actual swab that was being used? was it or was it this? tell people the truth. come on, let's go. will: speaking of telling the truth that cnn statement said basically anyone would do, this anyone would jump the line and be scared. i think that cnn statement is them being honest. chris jumped the line and he was scared and everyone was. what it reveals is the hypocrisy of going on television every night and acting like you have these principles journalistic or otherwise that you live up to. the truth is you are a hypocrite trying to do the best for yourself. when you come on every night and pretend to care for everyone else you might extend that television broadcast. rachel: i don't think it's true that everybody would do that. will: a lot of people would. rachel: i wouldn't. steve: who has the connections other than if your brother is the governor? look, it was a conflict of interest for chris to be interviewing his brother.
3:28 am
but, back then, you know, everybody was going oh, governor cuomo is so much better than president trump. we love him. he has a brother they are going back and forth. rachel: it was ratings. steve: now as it turns out they got caught and now they have got what they would describe as a lot of splaining to do. so far, answers not very good. rachel: no, it's not. steve: all right, rachel, what is coming up? rachel: president biden decides he won't handle the border crisis instead handing the reinstom homan on why he says ts a horrible choice for the border coming up. will: 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 outcomes in the fox bet fox betsuper 6 show. download the fox bet super 6 app. now.

[laughter] steve: well now that's now her boss. joe biden passing the buck, what can we expect to happen at the border? let's talk to retired acting ice director and fox news contributor tom homan. tom, good morning to you. >> good morning. steve: we know she was the
3:35 am
attorney general from the sanctuary state of california, but what else do we know about how she regards our southern border? >> well, when president biden says she is the most qualified, i mean, seriously? i mean, you know, what color is the sky in his world? because you can't get a worse pick. she supports sanctuary cities. wrote legislation to reward those who illegally enter the united states. she vilified the men and women of the border. saying they were mistreating. she wants to abolish ice. she compared immigration officers to the kkk during a senate hearing. and you want to put her in charge of immigration enforcement on the border? i couldn't think of a worse choice. steve: because in 2019 she supported decriminalizing crossing the border illegally. it's a federal violation of statute and, yet, she was saying you know what? that shouldn't probably be against the law. >> the most qualified person to
3:36 am
fix this issue how about the chief of the united states border patrol who is a great guy. he ebb spent his whole career on the border. he could fix it. if you give him the power to change the policies that need to be changed and let him do his job? that's the guy. not some politician. but, you know, one of the first things they say kamala is going to do troofl mexico and central america to talk to them folks. why don't you sit down and talk to the command of the border patrol and their opinion. they have been through this before they know how to fix this. the same way president trump fixed it. all got to too one thing if joe biden said today i'm going to reestablish remain in mexico program effective immediately, border crossings would go down 75% in the 24 hour period. steve: that's a good point. when you look at entrepreneurship, it was about a year ago, he put mike pence in charge of the coronavirus response. essentially, joe biden is admitting okay, this is a crisis so i'm going to put my number 2 in charge of this, but there is
3:37 am
political peril for her because if it does not work out well, this could actually damage her presidential ambitions. >> it is not going to work out well. i will tell you that right now. and joe biden should -- you know, look, he has already said he wants to have agreements with these countries. there were agreements are honduras, el salvador and guatemala and mexico they destroyed them in two weeks. if they would have stuck to the trump playbook joe biden would have had the most successful border security. they tore down everything trump. this is what they got today. again, not my accident, not by incompetence, but by design. this is what open borders looks like and joe biden win an election sold out to the progressive left to get an open border. he knew exactly what he was doing when he made these promises. steve: before did you go i wanted to ask you about yesterday the white house took a pool reporter on a tour of a facility, i think, in can a raz zoe springs which is it's one of the child facilities, one of the
3:38 am
child detention facilities. and it's run by the dhs. it's not run by the border patrol which has been described as more jail-like. which has been referred to as kids in cages. and ted cruz said, you know, real rather take them to the tieona facility because it's at 65% capacity kids go it slope hungry, they sleep on the floor. they haven't seen sun late in seven days and it's full of covid. why did the white house and that's the place i'm talking about right there in donna, texas. those are the leaked photos from congressman cuellar. why didn't the white house take reporters to that place rather than, you know, the place that they essentially are putting on their brochures because it's run perfectly? >> because they are not transparent. they are hiding the truth from the american people. for the same reason they won't admit there is a crisis. i mean thank god for congressman

4:04 am
harris to take control of what's going on at the border. i want to show you these new numbers though, steve, you mentioned. we are talking 16,513 unaccompanied children in the custody of health and human services. and border protection. also, within the lastier, weigh last last year297 covid cases. 319 of those unaccompanied children tested positive for covid-19 and they remain in medical isolation. none though, this is the good news, none required hospitalization for covid-19. for the first time, as steve mentioned, an independent news organization was allowed in one of these processing facilities to show the american public what they look like. white house press secretary jen psaki was asked about this yesterday about the facility photographed in can a his zoe springs, texas. she says the goal is to open up more to media when possible, listen.
4:05 am
>> what about access to facilities that there is a problem recommendation we are providing access there and this is the first step in the process. these facilities, of course, can't become forums for media access all day long. >> and, of course, we have been talking about at 1:15 today that's the big press conference. president biden first press conference since becoming commander-in-chief and you can get the border will come up multiple times especially these facilities, back to you. steve: thank you very much for the live report from dc. will: pretty stunning, couple days ago we had representative henry cuellar on the program. talking about the congressional that got to see these facilities. what kind of facilities would a congressional delegation get access to? you would think just the best of them. steve: now. will: now it is honest if not brazen admission you are only seeing the best of these facilities. they have named them. these are our aspirational facilities i just heard from david spunt is.

4:07 am
addition to all the other problems, this is a super spreader event. they are just trying to get these kids, you know, back to normal so they can release them into the country. rachel: well, that's right. i think a sign that the biden administration is finally admitting they have a crisis on their hands, is that joe biden, president biden has now put vice president harris in charge of all of this and saying she is going to speak for him. take a look. >> i said when we became a team and got elected that the vice president is going to be the last person in the room. she didn't realize that means she gets every assignment. i think the best thing to do is put someone who that when he or she speaks they don't have to wonder about is that where the president is? when she speaks, she speaks for me. she doesn't have to check with me. she knows what she is doing. rachel: i hardly know what he said with that mask.

you couldn't get a worst pick. she supported sanctuary cities. she wrote legislation to reward those who illegally entered the united states. she vilified the men and women of the border patrol during the last surge mistreating immigrants. she is an open borders advocate. shea wants to abolish ice. >> she compared immigration officers to the kkk during a senate hearing. and you want to put her in charge of immigration enforcement on the border? i couldn't think of a worse choice. will: it truly is stunning. you have to judge someone based on past actions and past promises and past words. kamala harris' past words and actions when it comes to immigration suggests that she is for open borders and sees immigration enforcement as a i don't know. what i don't know whether a your conclusion is if you are comparing it to the kkk. steve: there is no enforcement. rachel: there is none. in fact she says right now that her goal is to move these unaccompanied minors who have come here illegally from custody of the border patrol into the custody of hhs, which means they are going to by the way put them

4:21 am
did. there are two bills the president is prepared to sign, so we need the senate to act. here to react attorney and gun rights activist colion noir. colion, always good to have you. thanks for being on the program this morning. we see the list of items, somewhat repetitive in the wake of these tragedies. the democrats will push for expanded background checks, banning assault rifles, assault weapons. quote unquote high capacity magazines. potentially a gun registry. what do you expect them to target as new laws? >> i definitely expect them to go after the universal background checks because for them that's low hanging fruit. they have been pushing this notion that 90% of americans disagree with the universal background check without telling distinction the background check we have and universal background checks. on top of that, i expect them to go after ar-15s and semi-automatic rifles as well largely because they have been engaging in this fear campaign presenting the ar-15 as killing
4:22 am
machine that the only utility and purpose that it has is to kill a bunch of people in mass shootings as we just saw in boulder, colorado, which is absolutely not true. so, from that perspective, like you said, it's very repetitive and they do this consistently. and at this point, considering the times that we live in now, i think it's fair to say that everyone honestly should be very cognizant about what's going on because now we have access to information we didn't have 10, 20, 30 years ago. so the information now is out there. so i implore the people who are watching this, understand, like the consequences there are consequences that come with voting for these people and we need to hold them accountable to the things that they do and things that they say. pete: colion, it's a campaign of campaign of fear built upon ignorance. not understanding the fundamental differences and lack of differences weapon like the ar compare to other semi-automatic weapons. as long as people are ignorant of the lack of differences they will be able to push that campaign of fear.
4:23 am
however, on the other side colion, 2020 saw record gun purchases for first time gun owners. that only increased in january of 2021. the point is there are more americans out there owning guns today than at any point how is this a political victory or how can they push forward a democratic political agenda if more and more people are becoming gun owners? >> that's just it. they can't. because if there is one thing that their agenda can't usurp it's reality. i think there are a lot of people out there that believe we are so advanced that we don't need these tools anymore. that's not the case and we learned that readily in 2020, when people realized oh, man, when it comes down to it, the only person responsible for my safety, is me. so i need to go out there and get the best tools possible to defend not only me but the family and the people i love. that's what we realized in 2020. but, on the other side of it as far as the gun control lobby and politicians anti-gun, they think they can continue to push this agenda because they forget we live in the day and age of the internet and that they can --

will: i was going to say, colion they dual it through nondemocratic means. it doesn't rely on the voter's accountability. very quickly, colion, everyone wants to see these tragedies end. the democrats' response would be to go after these guns. what would be your suggestion how we can stem the rise of mass shooting. >> empower the people. at the end of the day, empower the people. it's only reality. a cop can't be there at the same time to a degree that you are there whenever a situation like this happens. we should teach people responsible gun ownership and the ability to carry a firearm with them as often as possible so if something like this does happen we can do something about it immediately and not have to wait for someone else. will: i would suggest there is evidence to back up your point right there. these don't often happen or they largely happen in gun-free zones. that's where a lot of these types of crimes take place. colion noir, thank you so much for being on with us this morning. >> thanks so much for having me. will: one year to the day since governor cuomo ordered new york nursing homes to take in

4:31 am
in the state of new york. together, we will get it the truth. steve: janice dean joins us now to her reaction to incredibly fast and difficult year. janice, good morning to you. you know, the department of justice is looking into the governor's plan to send people back into the nursing homes because, among other things, we know now from his secretary, secretary to the governor, melissa der rosa on a zoom call with democrats she admitted we doctored the numbers so that the trump administration and the doj wouldn't come after us. well now the doj is looking into what they did to make sure it wasn't against the law. janice: right. and we have a federal investigation and an fbi investigation here in new york and all i want is those investigations to be on the side of justice, to get the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth from the governor and his administration.
4:32 am
it's all i have wanted from the very beginning is just answers to three questions. the march 25th order, what are the origins, where did it come from? why did he put covid-positive patients in the nursing homes and did not use the federal facilities that were provided, the comfortship, the javits center. and why did he cover it up for months? steve: those are three great questions. do you know what? we would like to have the transparency and we would like to know the answers. and you have been asking for transparency and answers for months because of your awful story. you know, you did not set out to become an advocate for this issue but, given the fact that both of your in-laws died, you are an accidental activist. and now you are, you know, a lot of people feel that you are their voice because they lost somebody and nobody is fighting city hall or in this case the
4:33 am
state mansion. janice: right. and i will continue to try to be a voice for them. you are right. i mean, i'm the meteorologist for "fox & friends." that's been my job for many years now with fox news. i have never been a political person. no one knows who i voted for. but i felt it was important because i wasn't seeing the coverage on television of this order that is now a year old to put covid-positive patients into nursing homes. i thought it was important to raise my voice, to tell my family's story on behalf of those who have no voice. steve: you know, janice, the thing about it is a lot of the things you have been asking we have discovered were true. so, you know, you are helping us all get to the bottom of there.
4:34 am
janice: have a voice and i feel that i am on the side of the age olds and they do give me strength every day to get those answers. i don't know how long can i continue to do this because it is really tough. it's tough on me and it's tough on my family. steve: i know. i know there are people who would love to have you and you are absolutely right. we don't know about your politics. but there are people who feel that you would be great in public service pause you have done a public service in advancing the quest for justice in this particular case. speaking of justice, on this one year anniversary, it is ironic that it has been revealed that apparently governor cuomo pulled strings to give his family preferential treatment including chris cuomo, his famous brother on tv, his sister, his mother, they all got covid tests when none of us could get them. but they all jumped the line and got preferential treatment. what sort of preferential
4:35 am
treatment did your family get? >> none. and they weren't allowed to test them in the nursing homes when they were putting covid positive patients back into nursing homes that basically spread the virus like wildfire. so i think it's just disgusting. and i think the impeachment process should continue. i think albany lawmakers need to do that for our families, get it done. they are stalling. they are stonewalling right now. he doesn't deserve to be our leader anymore. steve: well, you know, it's interesting you should say that in the stonewalling because there are all these investigations up in albany, the state capitol here. there is an impeachment inquiry and they are trying to get things started and this is by democrats. and even though, you know, he he is being surrounded by critics and people saying look, you blew it on this and you didn't do that right and then there are other issues as well. he is steadfast. he has said he is not budging.
4:36 am
>> i'm not surprised. it's part of his personality. he is a bully. he likes to threaten people. i'm not surprised that there is, you know, a me too movement against him because he really does think he's the most powerful guy in the room. but i think justice needs to be done here and we have voices on both sides of the aisle. and what if he was a republican? do you think we would still be looking into this governor and wouldn't there probably be an impeachment already? just think about that for a moment. what if this was a ron desantis giving preferential treatment to his family getting covid tests for his brother on television? just think about that? and what if i was a meteorologist on a different network? what kind of coverage why be getting? what kind of treatment would i get from the press? just think about that for a moment. steve: you are absolutely right when you think about that. janice, you know you have been an advocate for these 15,000
4:37 am
people who died through this scandal at the nursing homes. and while we have heard the stories of your two in-laws, there are about 15,000 others we don't know their story and that is a tragedy. >> it is. and we have to remember each and every one of them. every victim deserves their right to tell their story. unfortunately, over 15,000 of them are not here to tell theirs. steve: but you are giving them voice and you are trying to get to the bottom of it and you are just looking for justice. that's what you have said from the get-go and have you done a good job on that. janice, thank you very much for joining us on this one-year anniversary. >> thank you, my friend. steve: you bet. thank you. mickey and dee would have celebrated their 60th anniversary in february. we'll be right back.

customer's gender transition. the new case wrapped up yesterday masterpiece cake shop owner jack phillips joins us now for a "fox & friends" exclusive along with kristin wagner, general counsel for alliance defending freedom. welcome to you both. i'm going to start with you, jack. you say the supreme court has said that you have the right to refuse to do a cake that defies your religious beliefs. why do they keep going after you? why do these activists keep coming in and asking you to do this. >> this case actually started the day that the supreme court announced that it was going to hear our case. it was a busy crazy day at the shop as you can imagine and an attorney here in denver called us up and requested that we would create a custom cake it was pink on the inside and blue on the outside to celebrate a gender transition to change from a man to a woman. rachel: your family has been through so much including death threats. i know you love to make these cakes. you are clearly an artist. you do a beautiful job. but, why do you keep doing this? you know that they are coming

5:03 am
luckily she takes this very seriously. remember this from a couple years ago? >> do you intend to visit the border? >> not today but i have before and i am sure i will again. >> she is most qualified to do it, with mexico and the northern triangle and countries that need help in stemming the movement of so many folks stemming migration to the southern border. will: is she the most qualified person to do it? >> absolutely not. i heard tom wilson point out how bad she has been on the border, her track record. not only that, joe biden needs

5:05 am
why was this one chosen? >> we are providing access. >> this shows they are finding -- finally admitting there is a problem. what i think about when i hear this is all this attention in the federal government, the vice president focused on the border, that says there's a lot of stuff they are not talking about, not focusing on this is the american people who are economically and otherwise in the pandemic, the border crisis they created. >> there is a lot going on but they are turning attention to the border and i got a picture at the press podium, bringing forward your most important message, putting the finest gloss you can on your
5:06 am
administration but what is happening in the west wing, this is a cover-up, no other way to put it. they are not letting the cameras in because they are covering up the fact the children are shoved together. the same administration that said we cannot go back to school, because they are doing worse than that. this is a cover-up and we will find out a lot down the road. there is a 5 alarm fire going on. will: let's move to governor andrew cuomo. you are involved in the media. cnn host chris cuomo managed to jump to the front of the line
5:07 am
back in the spring almost a year ago together covid test, difficult for any american to get a covid test and because his brother was the governor of new york, chris cuomo and several members of the cuomo family were capable of jumping the line to get a covid test. the head of strategic communication responding this way. you generally do not get involved in the medical decisions of our employees but it is not surprising the earliest days of once a century global pandemic, he was concerned about possible spread he turned to anyone he could for advice, assistance as any human being would. every step of the way we see conflicts of interest whether it is the cuomo brothers interview each other or when it comes to access to a covid test. >> i will never forget being in the white house, every single day we had that cuomo press conference, donald trump would come on with his press
5:08 am
conference and we were constantly compared to governor cuomo who was the wonder boy, the goldstar person, the person leading the way on the pandemic, constantly compared to him as a benchmark but now we know what was going on behind the scenes. not only this, preferential vaccine and on testing his vaccine czar, this is incredible and when you compare that to donald trump where when the vaccines came he said no. my west wing most people are not getting it. i didn't get access to a vaccine before the american public, donald trump waited to take it because he prioritized the american people. with chris cuomo being preferential to his family and his brother, andrew cuomo i should say. will: cnn, conflict of interest for chris cuomo to be covering his brother and a lot of tory fashion but to your point cnn was pushing the story cuomo has
5:09 am
been doing a good job, that led to the cuomo comedy hour we have been watching over the last year. >> i called mom, she said she was my favorite, you've blown the credibility -- the meatball of the family. >> do you think you are an attractive person and ready to mingle. >> some say i shouldn't come on this show because you harass me. >> can't take it. >> is it true this is the swab the nurse was using on you and disappeared, this is the actual swab that was being used. tell people the truth. will: that was not a conflict of interest but in the month or two we have heard from chris cuomo
5:10 am
and cnn, it would be inappropriate for chris cuomo to be covering his brother the governor who is facing these embarrassing scandals. >> basically when it is going well for governor cuomo it seemed to be going well for him. he is permitted on his brother's program but the moment it turned south, and he's in a nursing home scandal or vaccine scandal, no coverage of governor cuomo on the part of chris cuomo. it is a way to basically let chris cuomo off the hook that i read he had his lowest ratings in the year. no one wanted to watch the cuomo comedy hour and no one wants to watch cuomo in the evening prime time network. >> joe biden, for unity on numerous occasions.
5:11 am
that would be what defines unity. remember the promise joe biden made to work with all-americans. >> i beat the socialists. that is how i got elected. that is how i got the nomination. do i look like a socialist? look at my career, my whole career. i am not a socialist. >> unity also is trying to reflect what the majority of the american people, democrat, republican, independent, think i'm going to be a president for all americans. no red or blue. in contact with members of both sides of the aisle and advancing shared goals. will: senator lindsey graham and senator mitch mcconnell are saying they've not been invited to the white house. >> not surprised. before i was with the trump white house i was with the trump campaign and we would tell
5:12 am
reporters this guy is a marionette puppet for the radical left. he's not a moderate. how can you say that? look at his record all the time, a moderate, united, that is what we were told and we knew this was not true. now we know it was never true, the way he handled the covid relief, not inviting mcconnell to the white house, he was never interested in unity, he was interested in the green new deal, the quality act, hr one, steamrolling the radical left agenda far more aggressive than president barack obama. steve: the press conference will be at 1:15. you know how that works although it works differently during the trump administration than it is now. i don't hear as many critical questions although i do know one guy who asks as many questions
5:13 am
as he can but do you think things are turning? over the last couple weeks i noticed more mainstream reporters once in a wild get in a good question. >> peter doocy and kristen fisher led the way in questioning this administration and the other chomping at the bit to ask tough questions. i am noticing a little bit of shift and got to wonder how much preparation joe biden is putting in. donald trump would go through his remarks and a permanent marker he would cross through, edit and make changes and have a minute or two to coach him and say he has questions, but he knew his policies, he was leader of the administration but with joe biden i am not certain that is the case so i wonder what preparation, a lot more than a minute or two use putting in. we will see how he does because it is not his ideal format, the back-and-forth and jostling at a press briefing.
5:14 am
>> i can barely understand what he is saying with the mask on. we talked about how he hasn't met with the republican side. sometimes i wonder it is not that he doesn't want to work together or pretend he isn't working together, maybe they don't want to show how badly he is declining. i can't understand him and there seems to be such little access and they know we have those questions. what else could be the reason? >> that is a great question. a scripted presidency, soundbite presidency, with nancy pelosi, even when friend or foe the cameras were always in, he was always taking questions but this is a scripted presidency. they put him in the very short moments of his speeches are a few minutes most of the time, no long address, why the joint address to congress, this is your opportunity to go forward with a positive optimistic agenda, lay out your point. he's not doing it.

5:43 am
this before and how these surges are used by sex traffickers and drug traffickers, we know the inhumanity this is going to be sparking, and the administration is blind to it. >> seasoned journalists have been on our show and said access for the media is better in mexico than in the united states, it is embarrassing. i want you to explain why a us senator can't demand to see what is going on at facilities paid for by the taxpayers in a situation that we know, as you said was caused by this administration. >> customs and border protection, the executive office agency, they control it, we don't. a group of 19 of us will highlight this and coming on shows like this can make the
5:44 am
public aware of this. donald trump was able to largely fix the problem with families and unaccompanied children exploiting asylum laws and we brought that to a end. with virtually no help from democrats. i got help from democrat senator kirsten cinema who worked on operations safe return, the return to mexico policy but now that vice president harris will be put in charge of this, she's the worst choice. she was on my committee and did nothing to help stop the flow. she attended hearings and asked of noxious questions to ice and cvp accusing them of inhumanity, had no interest whatsoever in working with the administration to secure the border and stop the flow. steve: when she was running for president she said if i'm elected president of the united states i will release the kids
5:45 am
from cages. one of the places the so-called kids with cages is the place you will visit tomorrow in texas so it will be interesting to see. apparently is a super spreader event because when you look at the numbers the government has actually released, they are always spinning the numbers, close to 3000 kids and covid in federal custody but they don't test everybody so that is probably the tip of the iceberg. >> what we are seeing is the tip of the iceberg and in 2014 when president obama labeled that a humanitarian crisis his secretary of dhs set 1000 people apprehended today was a bad day. i heard of a day where 6000 people were apprehended and this happens day after day, overwhelming our personnel and our facility is what this administration is going to do is
5:46 am
going to release, back to catch and release, apprehend, process, disperse, 600,000 people per day. a caravan a day. rachel: senators and members of commerce go to the border it brings attention the administration doesn't want us to do about. thank you for doing that trip this week. >> thank you for highlighting this. this is a disaster, not just a challenge, it is a disaster and it is going to get worse. will: we look forward to hearing from you at the border. let's go to janice who is tracking extreme weather. >> janice: good morning. i want to make sure everyone is on alert. across the deep south and gulf coast, mississippi and tennessee river valley we have potential for severe weather outbreak including tornadoes. here i've are active storm
