it for the end of today's big telecast which features lawrence jones today. lawrence: oh, whatever. [laughter] ainsley: lawrence, your mom is watching. lawrence: yep. ainsley: yesterday she was watching and said i love you. what was her advice? lawrence: fix your facial expressions. it's the same things for years. ainsley: are you talking about? lawrence: i may not say it for years on my face i t. shows it. ainsley: you do this one look. lawrence: now show has the support of my father. it. steve: what's the look? lawrence: oh, like very and they give me these pep talks when i have an interview and they say don't do that. steve: so what face does your mom want to make. lawrence look into camera one. >> she wants me to be bland. steve: she wants you to smile. you have a beautiful smile. [laughter] steve: there you go. that's more like it. that's the smile you want to start your day with. ainsley: i can't wait to meet
your parents some day you talk so nicely about them. and such a big supporter of yours and been a big part of your life. lawrence: young parents so we grew together. mom was 17. ainsley: how many brothers and sisters? lawrence: i'm the oldest of three. steve: your parents are in texas? lawrence: in texas. steve: so unlike the texas legislators, they are on the run on the lamb in washington, d.c. what's interesting is we don't know exactly who paid for that jet. we don't know who is paying for any of the stuff they are going through. but we do know that while they are not doing their job in austin, texas, they are getting paid by the state of texas to do their work in texas not in d.c. ainsley: look at that. $221 in per diem. that's in addition to the salary they are making. they are still making this every day as long as the session continues. lawrence: it is very clear to me that this has become not state business, the politics business of the democratic party. when you look at the banner right there, you notice that it
doesn't have the seal of the texas legislature it says texas dnc which is the texas democratic party right there. that means if i can assume probably the texas democratic party paid for that private jet and all the beer to get there. apparently they fell and hit their head because texans hate washington washington. ne don't like the way they do business. it just shows you though they don't care about what the people of texas think. the people for texas are for voter i.d. they want a secure election. this is about the big bill, the hr-1 bill. steve: yes, sir. lawrence: where they have federal control of our election. steve: those people with these selfies, they are essentially props in the photo op. that the democrats in washington, d.c. are putting together. you know, regarding h.r. 1. it's such a good thing that you brought it up, lawrence. you know, democrats are yelling about the republicans, you know, they are talking about voter suppression by not voting for this. you know who is actually
involved in voter suppression right now? those texas legislators. because they're extending. it is impossible to vote while they are out of the state. so they are suppressing the vote in texas. karl rove writes about this today on the "wall street journal" in the op-ed page. it's such a good point. what mainstream media is going to start saying hey these guys are suppressing the vote in texas. ainsley: they only meet every other year. lawrence: for four months. ainsley: there are so many other things they are not in texas voting on right now that do affect the people in texas. one of the state representatives. his name is chris turner, listen, we deserve this stippen because we are working harder than ever. we are working harder, doing what we are doing right now than we would be if we had stayed in the chamber. although they are not there in the chamber to vote for any of these laws. steve: because they are spretsing the vote from washington, d.c. lawrence: this is what is happening, guys, there is no filibuster in the state
legislature. so, instead of going with the rules that are given for years in the texas legislature. they decided they are not going to show up for work. no one is saying that they have to vote yes for the bill. if you don't like the bill, they have a right. they represent their constituents. but stand up, be a texan. be a man or woman, and vote for the bill and then deal with the repercussions after that. if the voters don't like it, guess what? you will win. you will win and the republicans that voted for that, if the voters don't like that, they won't be in office. instead of doing that they decided they won't show up for work. steve: lawrence, you said there is no filibuster in texas. they are filibustering. lawrence lawrence that's exactly right. changing the rules. steve: and filibustering. ainsley: imagine not going to work. would you still get paid you? would eventually lose your job. that's going to be interesting in the next election to find out how texans really feel about this. because they don't have to put them back in office. lawrence: we are missing it all,
whys, because kamala harris says they are honoring the life and legacy of frederick douglass. take a look. >> they took bold, courageous action this line with everyone from frederick douglass to all those women who marched down pennsylvania avenue for women's rights to vote to all of those folks who shed their blood on the edmund pettus bridge to make sure that we until 1965 pass the voting rights act now we have in 2021 the texas legislature, many of them, traveling to washington, d.c. at great sacrifice both personally and political to stand up for americans' rights to vote unencumbered. lawrence: who got beaten? where is the blood shed? are they being starved? i mean, is there no food? i mean, i'm just trying to figure out the comparison civil
rights movement beaten on the bridge for the right to vote. they still haven't showed me the people that aren't able to vote right now. just the gaslighting over and over and over. i think it's an important point to note, that the president of the united states is standing with them, with this rhetoric and we were told that was goc a different tone in the white house. there wasn't going to be any more gaslighting. that we were going to have some civility and these are the talking points. ainsley: and unity. >> and unity. steve: he ran on i'm going to be bipartisan and work across the aisle with them. our white house correspondent jen psaki asked yesterday now can you think of any time in his 36 years in the senate when joe biden hopped a rain to delaware because he was going to make a vote he was going to lose. >> run away texas appears.
here he is yesterday on larry kudlow: i will continue calling special sessions all the way up until election day of next year if i have to until we get this law, but, more importantly, other laws passed. larry, other laws being passed by the texas senate right now make texas, safer, better and stronger such as reducing property taxes in texas. such as bail reform not letting dangerous criminals out on the street that kill other people. candidly, by the democrat being in washington, d.c., there's going to be some people who lose their lives because of the failure to support the bail reform. what they are doing is deadly dangerous in washington, d.c. they need to get back. because their voters, their constituents, are going to get very angry at them for not doing the job they were elected to do. lawrence: ainsley, the last thing i will say on this is, and you brought up the press corps that was there yesterday and peter doocy asking his questions. and the last thing that's going on in the press corps shouldn't
they be fact checking this? i mean, "the washington post" has been very clear on the georgia bill. the texas bill is not that much different than the georgia bill. they gave them four pinocchios, instead of laughing, how about fact-checking the white house, ainsley. ainsley: i don't understand why they are protesting because the republicans are just saying you have to show an i.d. or give your social security, the last four digits in order cast your vote. that sounds like common sense to me. lawrence: right. ainsley: i don't understand this they are fleeing, they're leaving, i'm curious to know what are the people of texas saying. your friends and parents saying about this. lawrence: frustrated politics as usual. they don't know the specifics but they know they can vote. the fact is they see this as just a dog and pony show. and i think they are going to pay a price at the ballot box. steve: you know, ainsley, to your point, i don't think there is any common sense involved. they are standing at the dnc
podium, why? because the dnc is fundraising off of their run away trip. lawrence: we get the emails. steve: wait a minute, speaking of email. i got something from your mom. she said you need to smile more. that was better but a little more smiling. lawrence: all right, mom, i will smile. i'm definitely smiling about this. coming up super star pitbull is throwing his support behind the cuban people's fight for freedom. why he says the whole world needs to pay attention. still ahead. ainsley: is he a cuban american. lawrence: yes, he is. steve: don't fauci my florida. governor ron desantis is out with a new line of beer cozies. ainsley: cozies it's could sey. steve: america's second largest teacher's union is furious. fill you in after the break. so get cozy with your coffee and we'll be right back. ♪ bombs away ♪ bombs away ♪

baby ninjas? i love it. carley: good morning, back with headlines, today a hearing will be held on sex trafficking operation possibly linked to mollie tibbetts murder. two witnesses told investigators a man had confessed to killing tibbetts after kidnapping her for a sex trafficking ring. that man has not yet been identified. creation rivera was convicted in tibbetts' murder but his sentencing was delayed this week after the witnesses came forward. >> a judge will now decide whether rivera gets a new trial. on to extreme weather now. multiple tornadoes are reported in central iowa. a trail of destruction left behind with power knocked out at thousands of homes. meanwhile, heavy rain causes
severe flooding in arizona. watch this. >> oh my god, you guys. oh my god. oh my god. crews cress could youing a man and his two young daughters after heir car was swept away in fast moving water. none of them were hurt. today the ios will start sending out president biden's enhanced child tax credit payments. 39 million families are expected to get monthly checks' of up to $300. families could get $3,600 per child. slam the tax credit boost calling it the expansion of the welfare state. and a judge grants britney spears the right to her own attorney in her conservatorship battle with her father jamie. the pop star celebrating with cartwheels and video she shared on instagram.
her new attorney argues her father must step down as conservator as spears tearfully commanded that spears be charged with conservatorship abuse. steve: she was happy. was that tumbling from yesterday? carley: cartwheels, yeah. ainsley: what do you think of that? carley: cartwheels are great and the i think the judge made the right choice. all it showed is she has the right to her own attorney her own representation. ainsley: what i got from it okay she is telling the truth. you hear both sides. you don't know what to believe. we don't live in her world. but clearly she has been restrict and now she is free. lawrence: if she can do the tour she can pick her own attorney. ainsley: think about this they are making money because of her talent. and she. lawrence: they are spending it all. unbelievable. steve: thank you very much. carley it just appeared that it is easy to get into a conservatorship but really hard to get out of one.
ainsley: we will talk to meghan alexander she is with "inside edition" she will be on our show in a little while. steve: the country of cuba have temporarily lifted restrictions on how much food can take into the country, travelers and stuff like that. clearly after protests over the shortages of basic goods, you know, medicine, like that, the impact, you know, it's going to be negligible. what we have seen though is the people there want freedom and they want it now, it's a clear, clear message. communism, as marco rubio said yesterday, sucks. ainsley: the white house said they are fleeing or out there protesting because of covid restrictions. but your son, he has done such a phenomenal job in the white house. really pressing them on asking them why they are changing the narrative. why they are going in one direction when we really know what's happening. they don't have food. they don't have water. listen to peter doocy pressing
jen psaki. >> do you think people are leaving cuba because they don't like communism? >> i think we have been pretty clear that we think people are leaving cuba not leaving cuba or protesting in the street as well because they're oppose to the oppression through the mismanagement of the government and the country. we certainly support their right to protest. we support their efforts to speak out against their treatment in cuba. steve: so she said we support their right to protest. why doesn't she come out and say commune schism a failed system and that's why people want out? why didn't she say that? lawrence: that is the big question. and why has it become a partisan issue? well, the reason is because democrats would have to look themselves in the mirror, especially their base, and say: this is bad for america. this is where socialism, communism goes. and they don't want to have to fillet or peel that onion back it will anger the base. whichs s. why aoc or eona
presley ilhan omar, because this is what they believe. in they don't see the death, poverty and destruction it leads to. ainsley: doesn't it baffle you? lawrence: it does. ainsley: how do they hear the messages and people say they need food, water and messages. weget it they don't get it americans like the way america is we have our issues. but, overall, we are a free country. you can worship how you want to worship. you can say what you want to say. and we can do whatever we want look at what they do in cuba? you can't have food or medicine if you are sick. lawrence: you are not the only one, guys, you have got pitbull i'm not talking about the dog. the world wyde wide singer is upset about it. ainsley: is he from cuba. >> not only is this a cuba thing, this is a world event. this isn't about politics. this is about saving lives. this is about unity, not division and bottom line it's about taking action.
it frustrates me to a certain extent being a cuban american and having a platform to speak to the world and not being able to help my own people. not being able to get them food or water and not being able to get them medicine. but, most of all, not being able to help and really get them what they deserve which is freedom. we need to figure out how to help. we need to be creative and figure out solutions while they are losing their lives over there literally for something that we wake up every day and appreciate, which is freedom. steve: pitbull is exactly right. it's bawl freedom. that is so simple. you rook at those images from sunday. it's very easy to understand. that flies in the face of what we were talking about yesterday with secretary mayorkas saying hey, if you are in cuba or haiti, don't try to come by boat. don't come. while the southern border, the hypocrisy is, it's wide open. could it possibly be, i looked up on the pugh polls today, could it, to the earlier point, be all about politics?
most cuban american voters identified in 2020 as republican. about 60% say they are affiliated with or lean toward the republican party. 60%. while 38% say they i.d. or lean toward democrat. by comparison, two thirds you have hispanic voters who are not cuban i.d. or lean democrat. ainsley: if you live in mexico or the triangle countries, come on in. if you live in cuba, republican cubans don't come. steve: you got to hope it's not but it looks like it. lawrence: people there using the american flag. they're saying we want to be like america. we want the same freedom. meanwhile we have ourselves going to the u.n. saying and asking them to investigate the u.s. for racism. meanwhile, you have people in other countries saying this is our biggest defense. we just want to be like the americans. steve: wait, is he not asking to
investigate cuba? lawrence: no. steve: he is asking to investigate the united states. ainsley: or china. steve: isn't it interesting tony blinken said here is his quotation because he was not on camera saying this crazy thing. response cybil nations must not shrink from the scrutiny of human rights record rather acknowledge it with the intent toe improve. i urge all u.n. member states to join the united states in this effort and confront the scourge of racism, racial discrimination and xenophobia. that soundbite right there reads like we are high minded about this. but to think that we are turning the mirror on ourselves never a bad thing but with so many other things going on in the world, why focus on us how bad is it here? ainsley: nikki haley made that point. she was the u.n. ambassador. she was governor of south carolina. and she made exactly your point. she said china has a million uyghurs in concentration camps.
cuba is beating protesters. and venezuela is torturing political prisoners. yet, biden's secretary of state is inviting the u.s. to investigate human rights in the united states? the freest, fairest country in the world. this is insane. lawrence: they continue to make us out to be the worse. yes, we have our sins. it's the founding document that gives us the best defense. the last thing i will say on this point, they have become tools for china and russia. every time we criticize them. look at your country. it's propaganda for the enemy when they do this on the world stage. and i just got to say there has to be a lot of people having some buyer's remorse when it comes to the past president and what did he on the world stage, saying america first, yes, we can do undo some of the bad things we have done in the past. or undo by striving to be that more perfect union. but we are the best. we are fair, we do believe in civil rights. we do believe in the u.s. constitution and liberty for all.
meanwhile, we have our current secretary of state saying, you know what? investigate us. no, if we are going to investigate america americans, we don't need thetown investigate us. i'm sorry, it's just ridiculous. steve: joe biden administration thinks the united nations is smarter than the united states. lawrence: right. steve: i have a feeling their report today whatever the joe biden administration wants it to be. lawrence: 100 percent. steve: meanwhile, people are so incensed on television and elsewhere that ron desantis has got a sense of humor while poke ago little fun at dr. anthony fauci. don't fauci my florida. that's one of the items of merchandise now available on his website. ainsley: right. i mean, fauci's restrictions are a lot stricter than what desantis is doing down in florida. is he saying, look, i'm in charge of this state. everyone is happy here. so many people are moving hear. don't come in and tell me how to run my state. and tell our people what to do. media is slamming.
lawrence: they are so upset. ainsley: ron desantis, watch. this the governor of florida is now selling both of these items in his campaign store while his state is currently experiencing nearly four times the national average of new coronavirus cases but, hey, at least your beer will stay cold while you insult the very idea of infectious disease expertise. that will show them. >> governor ron desantis made clear long ago he is no fan of covid restrictions and no fan of dr. anthony fauci. it is a policy dispute in fact that desantis sees as a political cash cow. >> he is selling political swag. is he selling -- is he merchandising with the suffering of the people who die with the pandemic. that's just irresponsible and shameful. and i'm very, very disappointed in him. lawrence: the president of the aft the teacher's union she says this is disgusting. millions of floridians going to die from ron desantis ignorance. is he shooting the profit from it he doesn't care about
floridians he it cruel agenda do you know what's kuehl keeping kids locked down over a year weingarten did. she didn't care about the kids. she chose the teacher's unions over the kids. and then she requested ventilation systems to be changed. when they gave them the ventilation systems to be changed. she still decided to keep locked down. the cruelty being put on our children that is cruel. ainsley: the press, they promoted cuomo's book. they loved the fact that he wrote a book. they could not get enough of him. but, yet, when a governor of a red state is making these could you seys and t-shirt. >> cozies. ainsley: he says cozy i say could sey. such a double standard. steve: perfect symmetry by this half hour. we started by showing you how the democrats are raising money in washington, d.c. and texas by having the run away texans go to our nation's capitol. that's all about fundraising
right now at this point. you know, and they are department of educationally serious. it's bawl voter suppression. ron desantis also fundraising but at least he has a sense of humor about it. larynx lawrence the state is doing well. okay. let's just talk about this. they don't get to flip the switch on us when they told us everybody was going to die in florida. he was trying to kill momma and grandpa and all that. that's not true. florida is doing well. this is a back door. they are trying to figure out how they are going to wean people off government so they can get folks back to work. it's unbelievable that they are so focused on florida when you have the teacher's union that i know flicked that much harm on our kids. steve: the fact that they are so laser-focused on much on florida shows you whether a a political power house ron desantis is. so many people down in florida appreciate what he has done. ainsley: is he a threat. they want to go after him. the headline is, is it could you sey or cozy? steve: cozy. i'm just saying. ainsley: i think it does make
sense. steve: koozie is a brand mark name it was a cozy. ainsley: beer cozy. lawrence: it's koozie. >> what is it. >> cozy. ainsley: you say coast, too? >> cozy. steve: it's based on. ainsley: never heard of that on my life. steve: it's based on a tea cozy. it's not a could sey, it's a cozy. lawrence: i guarantee you the audit disagrees, they should email us. ainsley: mark says it's definitely a could sey. ainsley: does everyone call it a cozy in. steve: i would call it a cozy in virginia. ainsley: carley where did you grow? up. >> cozy. ainsley: ian what do you say? ian is shaking his head know. steve: koozie rhymes with boozey. ainsley: email us
firstname.lastname@example.org. it. lawrence: keep smiling. steve: let us know foxandfriends.com. meanwhile, coming up, law and order is in germany as the state of it will commonwealth of massachusetts faces a critical shortage of police officers. the president of the police blames the defund the police movement and he will be with us coming up next. ♪ music playing] ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ summer is a state of mind, you can visit anytime. savor your summer with lincoln.

we have multiple classes recruit training troops that have come to their maximum time to retire. so, as they approach their 25 and 30 year windows, they are stepping down what is conserving to me and members of my association. we are losing for the first time that i can recall members to other departments. traditionally we would see people leave for federal agency, fbi, atf, you would occasionally see that what we are starting to see a trend of troopers leaving to become municipal police officer, we had one just recently leave and become a sheriff in florida. and that's a direct, you know, attribution to the removal of some incentives. they are just not as incentivized as some of these municipal departments. several years ago we lost the dwindle. it makes it hard to recruit if
you have 25% less stippen over cities and towns that we are competing against for qualified recruits. lawrence: so, sergeant, can you tell me about these specialty units, how is it having them leave those units to go back on the streets? >> well, it's hard to identify the secondary and tertiary effect here. you are going to see a reduction in the staffing levels at our district attorney's office, our fire marshall's office. our attorney general's office. and by statute state troopers are assigned to the d.a.'s office to investigate unintended deaths to include homicides. we won't know until the end of this year what kind of a case load increase our troopers will be facing. it is hard to identify today but i think we can all agree that we are going to see it -- an uptick in case load and i just hope that that doesn't reduce our outstanding number. we're currently running at 85 to 90% assault and conviction rate. it's one of the highest numbers or percentages in the country
for homicide investigations. lawrence: sergeant, simply put, what does it mean whether you have less officers on the street? >> it means quite a bit. it means that you're sending less first responders to an incident. it -- the other thing here is officer wellness. the inability for our troopers to get time off. they come in for their 7 to 3:30 shift. and likely they are not going to be going home. they are going to be forced to stay. we see troopers working three, four days in a row double shifts. mandated due to the staffing short falls. and that's why we understand the nature of what colonel mason is doing here and it's to allow our folks to get time off for the mental and physical well-being and to be well-rested. we saw the incident in wakefield with a standoff. we need more troopers on the road. we need rested and well trained troopers out there. lawrence: you need increased pay
as well so you can compete with the other municipalities as well. sergeant, thank you so much for your service. we're praying for you guys. >> thank you. lawrence: you bet. republicans in north carolina are now one step closer to banning critical race theory in the state. >> got to ensure that things like critical race theory are not creeping in and causing our children to hate the nation that they live in. lawrence: north carolina lieutenant governor mark robinson joins us with more next. ♪ ♪ trelegy for copd. ♪ birds flyin' high you know how i feel ♪ ♪ breeze drifting on by you know how i feel ♪ [man: coughing] ♪ it's a new dawn, it's a new day... ♪

not being pressured to follow any ideology. steve: who would they be pressured by? >> well, we have a task force that we have assembled here in north carolina in our office for the purposes of combating indoctrination in the classroom. and what we have seen so far is that it, unfortunately, there are teachers in the classroom who are forcing their opinion on students. and we cannot allow that to happen. it's also happening, of course, to teachers as well. steve: mr. lieutenant governor, you know, there are people who say crt, critical race theory is not actually a real thing. it does not exist. to those people, what do you say? >> i say that it does exist. unfortunately, it's kind of slippery. it's almost, you can't really put your hands on it. it. steve: yeah. >> it can be defined and it can be seen when you see it in the classroom. i think the bill that we have in front of -- in front of the
senate coming up, i think that bill will go a long way to combating the isles of what we e call critical race theory. steve: it may pass the legislature but it goes to the democratic governor and who knows what is going to happen there. >> absolutely. steve: something else going on in north carolina is davidson college there is now offering #abolish the police course. they say about this, they had a statement to fox news. they said we focus on studies that are liberating and dedicate ourselves to the quest for truth. the offering of any class whatever it is titled reflects that it covers a subject worth studying. do you have concerns about that particular course, sir? >> i have not read the curriculum of that course, so i cannot comment on it exactly. but, i will tell you that given today's climate, the title of the course itself is very concerning.
what we have seen over the last couple years with this anti-police rhetoric, conservative, folks conservatives and folk on my side of the aisle, we have been screaming from the rafters that this is going to have dreadful effects for many communities around the nation, and that is proven true. we see this huge spike in crime now. ever since we have been browbeating and deb grating and defunding our police agencies across the country. and we see the dreadful effects now. we even have many democrats who are speaking up against it. so i am very concerned when i see something like that being offered at an institution of higher learning. steve: it will be interesting to see what they actually do talk about in it he is the lieu tenant governor of the great state of north carolina, mark robinson, sir, thank you very much for getting up early and joining us from raleigh today. >> thank you again for having me. steve: you bet. all right. it's 11 and a half minutes before the top of the hour. coming up in a couple hours, outside we're going to be kicking off the soldier ride and

we were talking about it earlier. my friend john killen who i went to school with university of kansas. he has this big company called wind craft and he says -- he said i sell millions of them a year. do you know what he calls them? can coolers. lawrence: oh. ainsley: do you know why? trade. steve: it is. stuart varney weighed in he said we call them a stubby cooler. >> ainsley: in new england when he was growing up? lawrence: not in the south. ainsley: i have had text messages i was chatting with a friend of my from college we say koozie. can you imagine being party pay i need a cozy? they would bring you a blanket. lawrence: if i go back to texas and say that they will say you have been in new york too long. speaking of texas, still fighting, these democrats, they decided to leave the state. ainsley: in private planes with their beer. steve: in a cozy. lawrence: sponsored by the democratic party. getting a lot of praise,
especially from the media. let's take a look. >> we stand here with these people of courage. with freedom fighters who came to washington, d.c. to seek salvation. >> the president's view is that these texas legislators were making a statement through action. >> they took bold, courageous action in line with the legacy of everyone from frederick douglass to the legacy that includes all those women who marched down pennsylvania avenue for women's rights to vote, so all of those folks who shed their blood on the edmund pettus bridge to make sure that we would in 1965 pass the voting rights act. steve: okay. so there we heard in that montage of prominent democrats. ainsley: salvation. steve: they are like freedom fighters. although down in texas, you know, the governor there would say they are fugitives. because what they are trying to do is trying to stay away from taking a vote.
that they are going to lose. and they are going to, you know, the republicans are in the majority there. they are going to have two new bills that would pass. but, ultimately, as karl rove writes today in the "wall street journal," what they're doing is those people around that podium are suppressing the vote. they are -- they can't vote in austin because they are in washington, d.c. doings this photo op. which is actually a big fundraiser for the dnc. lawrence: it just appears to me that they want to be famous so bad without doing the actual work. i mean, the comparison to the civil war, to the people that actually fought for women's rights. the civil rights movement. it just seems to me like they are the instagram wannabe celebrities that want a moment but the thing that you have got to put into works. if they want a cause, find something that's going to union file the country. take the banner of freedom for something that is really oppressive, but to suggest that people of color can no longer
vote, i. ainsley: women can no longer vote. >> when people actually fought for those issues, i think it leaves a bad taste in a lot of americans and texans mouth. steve: it comes down to two issues for them. 24-hour voting and drive-thru voting. remember, these were practices from the pandemic. harris county, which is houston, set up during 2020 election, set up 8 voting locations for 24-hour voting. mostly in democratic areas. shocking. and so the rationale is it seems unreasonable to have 250 other counties in texas have to man something 24 hours a day to do it. when it comes to drive-thru voting, initially, it was just for people who were physically unable to go in and vote. but they said it's for anybody. what this law would do is it says if you are physically able, you have got to get out of your car. it's that simple. and that's what they are freedom fighting about? those two things 24 hour voting
and dry threw voting? that? ainsley: some are upset about showing an i.d. there is a texas state representative that said on fox said i just don't want -- he was on with pete hegseth he said i don't believe in showing an i.d. to vote. lawrence: that's not even in this legislation. that was already passed before this even took place. so they just keep adding things. look, you guys got to understand though because they cried over this. this was a really. ainsley: sacrifice. lawrence: james talarico said it was a sacrifice and many members cried. >> none of my colleagues wanted to do this. my colleagues are leaving behind their kids. some are leaving behind dying family members. one of my colleagues canceled her wedding that was scheduled to break quorum. there was a lot of crying among legislators who had to make this decision as they left their families. this was not our first option. this was the last resort and one that we desperately tried to
avoid by working with our republican colleagues. lawrence: he is the youngest state representative. ainsley: he was on. lawrence: he was on with pete. ainsley: saying you shouldn't have to show an i.d. to vote. lawrence: if someone is proposing to you and pull this stunt the wedding would be off. if you have a family member that's dying and you leave for a political stunt, i just think that's -- ainsley: listen, when they come back, the governor said they are going to be arrested, he is going to hold special sessions. is he going to make them vote for this. are they just going to stay in washington. steve: no. they will come back in a couple weeks, if not a couple of days and they will take the vote. they will already have been, to your point, made famous. but you are absolutely right. if somebody left washington because they have got a relative who is dying or they broke the wedding date, first of all, you are going to roads all those deposits. i just went through another wedding. believe me, you don't want to do it. ultimately. ainsley: spoken like a dad. ains. steve: they are being used as
props and pawns for the democratic national committee to. ainsley: to raise money? steve: to go ahead and raise money and push we the people, hr-1 in the big congress in washington, d.c. do you think it's a coincidence that this is happening exactly at the same week that joe biden, kamala harris and chuck schumer are talking about voter rights. lawrence: steve, they said they were crying. meanwhile we literally put the photos up of them smiling, wipe the tears away. steve: that's why people hate politicians right there. lawrence: so crazy. look at the pictures. and they were crying? come on. ainsley: so ted cruz said this is ridiculous. >> these are partisan democrats playing a political stunt. and they're desperate for media attention they're getting it the biden administration wants to play politics so, they are doing that this is going to fail. when they come home the governor has rightly said he will continue to call special
sessions until texas passes voter integrity law. if these house democrats continue pulling this stunt, they are going to be arrested and the texas constitution gives ample authority to arrest legislators who are trying to shut down the operation of government and to forcibly make them present on the house floor so that the wheels of governor government can continue to turn. when their stunt is over, the legislature will do its job. lawrence: here is the sad part, after all of this, after all the lying, pretending to have fake tears after you missed your wedding and let one of your relatives die. no one is going to know how are. you are still going to be a state representative for the state of texas. washington won't know you. the media will forget but. all of this is for nothing. the governor still will arrest you once you land in the state of texas. ainsley: what do you think the voters think in texas. these guys think they're holier than thou. not doing job. tax dollars paying their salary. getting more than $200 a day in
a stippen per diem in addition to their salaries. jetting off in private jets with their beer smiling. in washington schmoozing with all these elected officials, the bigger officials probably trying to get in washington. now they are going to run for bigger offices and their pictures are all over the press. that's what the texans are saying and they're saying look, we are just trying to put food on the table. we are a ranch family or we live in dallas. people are appalled by this. because it's holier than thou. lawrence: you don't get it, ainsley. people in the civil right movement they flew in private planes they got catering this is their sacrifice. it's so appalling to suggest that these are heroes. steve: ultimately it is going to pass in texas. when they come back, they will vote on it and they don't have the votes. however, when it comes to hr-1 in the big congress in washington, d.c. that will fail because they do not have the votes in the senate. they got to get to 60, and they are trying their best, particularly the progressive
left wing of the democratic party to try to get this through. it will not -- lawrence: which frames the debate, which is what they really want, then maybe we should get rid of the filibuster. steve: jackpot. ainsley: let's talk about cuba. cuba announced they are temporarily lifting the restrictions on the amount of food and medicine travelers can country. they have turned the internet back on. the president of cuba says we have to gain experience from the disturbances. we also have to carry out. steve: disturbances. ainsley: carry out it in order to overact and overcome repetition. steve: perhaps the most famous cuban in the world is pitbull, the rap star. and he was on twitter yesterday and instagram. and he put out a message and essentially is hey, nations of the world. rich people like jeff bezos, you are cuban american. you need to help your people. it's not about covid. it's about freedom.
lawrence: that's right. >> not only is this a cuba event for cuba say thing this is a world event. this isn't about politics. this is about saving lives. this is about unity, not division. and bottom line, this is about taking action. it frustrates me to a certain extent being a cuban american and having it speak to the world and not being able to help my own people. not being able to get them food or water. not being able to get them medicine. but, most of all, not being able to help and really get them what they deserve, which is freedom. we need to figure out how to bring help. we need to get creative and figure out solutions. while they are losing their lives over there literally for something that we wake up every day and appreciate, which is freedom. steve: freedom. ainsley: good for him. steve: whatever you do, according to the biden administration, do not try to leave cuba in a boat. because, if you are -- if they scan you, they see you with a drone or something like that or
an aircraft. they are going to call the coast guard and they are going to turn you back to cuba, even though you want freedom and they will probably, meeting, put you into a prison or you will disappear. lawrence: i can't help but think we have it really easy in america. we are fighting over little things. meanwhile, they are using our founding documents, our principles as their torch. they are saying we want the american way. they're using our principles of free press. they are using our principles of freedom of speech. they are missing. family members can't figure out where they're. got the breast that are being literally drug out of their apartment in the middle of interviews and we are fighting over the little stuff in america. ainsley: you sore right. that's why they are carrying the american flag in cuba on the streets. 30-year-old journalist says he was walking on the street. he was documenting the protest. police pushed him on the ground and grabbed him by the feet. detained him 22 hours.
accused him of inciting protest. another mom was interviewed artist and photographer has been detained since sunday. she says, quote: it has destroyed me. we don't each have the internet to tell the world what's happening. steve: see, this is one of those cases where social media actually was able to mobilize a lot of people to be out on the street by the thousands on sunday. and that is why we were able to see those images of the people with the american flags and whatnot. however, of course, the regime pulled the plug and they tonight have that anymore. and so ron desantis has suggested, you know what? we need to figure a way to get them internet service. he said a couple of days ago, you know, there are companies on the space coast that can launch satellites, maybe they should do something like that so the that the people of cuba who are trying to be free can get their message out. because without the images we don't know what's going on there. lawrence: that's exactly right. ron desantis, as you correctly noted, he is going to do what he can to help them. anyway we have jorge miss
viddle. he calls killing machine. take a look. >> >> what i feel is correct. and what i feel everybody should be doing is fighting against oppression. communism. and anything of that nature my father escaped cuba when i was 14-year-old old. i would only process thoughts how [inaudible] you brought up a good point first hour the majority of cubans vote republican. steve: according to pew in 2020. 20% say they affiliate or lean toward the republican party while about 40% lean toward or affiliate with the democrats. ainsley: and trump did well in south florida because the democrats were saying socialism, socialism, socialism. well, those cuban americans, they know what socialism really looks like. steve: you would think that the number, ainsley and lawrence would be 100 percent.
1 hearse% of americans would be against communism. ainsley: it shouldn't be part -- all of us should agree on this. steve: we all want in unison now we all want it. ainsley: freedom. able. lawrence: afc fighter coming up at 8:it 0. ainsley: there he is with short hair. ainsley: all right, carley say it with us freedom. carley: can't wait to hear what he has to say. shocking surveillance video shows the alleged parkland school shooter attack a jail guard in 018. nikolas cruz is seen lunging at the officer and wrestling him to the ground while singing at him. the video was played by prosecutors in cruz's first in person court appearance since the pandemic began. cruz is charged with first degree murder in the february 2018 shooting at marjorie stoneman douglas high school. that left 17 people dead check

cuban americans identify as republicans. so suddenly covid is a problem again. look, reuters last year and you brought up one headline i will give you another, despite trump's law and order, square quotes, rhetoric, protesters won't back down. here what happens they say in the story, guys, the demonstrations were largely peaceful but anger boiled over some protests as protesters clash with police and stores were looted or set on fire. there is no mention of police injuries. there's no mention of the amount of damage done to businesses, which climbs into the billions. trust me, if this was a black lives matter protest in south florida, rest assure, there would be zero concern over a possible covid outbreak based on the present and based on the politics, guys. steve: you would hope that since we are talking about communism and the people who live under that regime and they just want freedom. you would hope that here in the united states we wouldn't be playing politics with it, but, you know, it is what it is when it comes to the polling according to pugh. speaking of politics though, what do you make of the coverage
regarding these texas democrats because, you know, we have been talking about how they are getting scrutiny from back home where they are going hey, we are paying you $221 a day for a stippen to be in austin and you are in d.c. but on some other channels, people are saying these are freedom fighters, they are fighting for your right to vote. which is not exactly accurate. >> yeah. the biggest threat since the civil war. it's very interesting. because the optics here. what people are seeing at home on social media and on television horrible for democrats, steve, because, when you see selfies, giddy selfies on a plane going it washington. you also see it's miller time apparently. so you have got cases of miller lite. steve: not even a texas beer. >> yeah, right. go with titos. if you are going to go, go with a little style. the fact that they were massiveless all of them on a plane going up against cdc guidelines. those optics even before they got to washington were horrific
and then when they got there, they had no plan. tough have an objective in some way, shape, or form, they are the minority in texas. and unfortunately, or fortunately, elections have consequences and this is going to blow blow up in democrats' faces in 2022 where you are looking at the retirement of nancy pelosi if and when they lose the house because only a few seats have to flip. 50/50 senate flips back to republicans as well. if this is what democrats are running on instead of tackling inflation or skyrocketing crime in this country or perhaps education that's going sideways and critical race theory. they have real problems here because they don't seem to have anything positive to run on, steve. steve: i want to see somebody on one of the channels talking to dr. fauci today. i want the channel to put up that image of the democrats not wearing the mask on the airplane and then saying, dr. fauci, are you okay with that? it would be curious. >> that would be a great question. steve: exactly. >> i got go i got yoga class it's goat yoga class with

that is kids with co-morbidity, let's see the statistics from the hospital and who is there. 9% plus are unvaccinated and kids are a very small proportion. those kids that are affected are kids with co-morbid conditions. lawrence: doctor, real quickly on, this shouldn't they be marketing to the parents, too? i think i have a little problem with them trying to convince the kids through celebrity. >> there is a larger movement right now that we do see in the world of healthcare to try to separate kids and their decisions from their parents and many people say this is a bad idea, parents have wisdom and, you don't want kids making decisions sometimes without the right data. you know, we have gone from being pro-vaccine in america to a universal vaccine fanaticism based agenda. it ignores natural immunity. it ignores the data that one dose in kids is 100 percent effective from tel aviv university and really pushes these mandates. lawrence: dr. fauci says kids three years and over should wear
a mask. let's play this. >> unvaccinated kids of a certain age and older should be wearing masks. no doubt about it. that's a way to prevent them from being infected. if they do, they can spread the infection to someone else. lawrence: doctor? >> well, look, i would love to see the data. remember, dr. fauci is one who claims he needs to see the data but yet, at the same time, sometimes the argument is used that things are just common sense so we need to do it. you can't flip back and forth to saying in a scientific way that we -- certain things are common sense, therefore, we need everyone to do it versus we need data for everyone to do it. i would love to see the data. kids who are healthy are extremely low risk and constitute such a small minority of overall cases. 05%. that's 500 threats of 1%. even though they are 20% of the u.s. population. we have lost all sense of risk.
it's distorted. more kids die from the common cold. they need to be careful especially if they have co-morbid conditions but no data to support what dr. fauci is saying. lawrence: exactly. getting so far away from the science when they told us to believe the science they're not giving us the fact on that. i find that to be very concerning. doctor, thank you so much for always separating fact from fiction. >> thanks, lawrence. lawrence: you bet. coming up, two veterans flip city council seats from blue to red. how they were able to win with a message that was pro-police. and ufc fighter jorge masvidal has zero tolerance for the are communist party. >> process how the communist regime killing machine is. lawrence: he says everyone needs to join the fight for freedom still ahead. ♪ ♪

happening in cuba right now and the white house response to those folks. >> well, it's really the lack of white house response, lawrence, i think you mean. we really have not heard very much at all from the biden administration, from president biden. and, look, you're right, i got to spend so much time in south florida on the campaign trail, and i met so many cuban-americans, either people that were refugees that escaped, you know, under castro, people whose families have come here from cuba. they toll me that -- told me that what they have started to see in america is frighteningly close to what they started to see happen in cuba over 60 years ago. it is time to give these people freedom in cuba with, period. i don't know anybody that disagrees with that. it's funny whenever you don't hear, by the way, from the aocs of the world, the bernie sanders of the world, the people who have been pushing these socialist, communist ideas on america. where are they in this fight? everybody should be
substantialing up alongside cubans -- standing up alongside cubans. we need to start censoring information like we saw happen during the campaign last year. when you start censoring information on social media, when you take the sitting president of the united states off of social media, it is a real slippery slope, and it's very easy to see how these folks ended up in this place in cuba. we should take it as a warning in america. freedom isn't free. we have to fight for it. and let's make sure we never find ourself in the same place as these poor people in cuba. steve: absolutely. and, march a rah, the first things we herald from the administration on monday morning were the protests in havana were a manifestation because they were sick and tired of the covid. it was all about the covid. and then the administration came out and said we stand by the people. so, you know, we haven't really heard joe biden come out and denounce communism. the reason those people are in the streets is they hate
communism. it's terrible. >> right. steve: so you've got to figure when peter doocy asked the administration yesterday about communism, this is their chance to say, yes, communism is terrible. do they? let's roll the tape. >> reporter: think that they're leaving cuba because they don't like communism? >> i think we've been pretty clear that we think people are leaving cuba or protesting in the streets as well because they are opposed to the oppression, to the mismanagement of the government in the country, and we certainly support their right to protest, we support their efforts to speak out against their treatment in cuba. steve: so they support the right to speak out, but where's the communism is terrible? we should embrace these people if they want to come to the united states. where's that part? >> well, you would think that in the united states of america it wouldn't be too big an ask of the press secretary for the president of the united states to say very simply, point blank, we to not agree with communism.
-- we do not agree with communism. it is bad. it has never worked anywhere. you're right, steve, why aren't they saying that? why can't they come out and say what we see happening in cuba is terrible, let's make sure it never happens in america. they're not doing that. steve: why? why don't they? >> it's a great question. i would love to get that answered, but i think for so many people, people have been very wary of what has been happening in america, and they're very -- they're afraid. we are slipping down the same path. maybe you don't want to come out and say that if your end game is to socialize america, if your end game is to make americans fully reliant on the government. so i don't know the answer to that question, but perhaps that is, that's one possibility. we don't know. ainsley: lara, i know you grew up in north carolina, you went to unc -- no, not unc, sorry -- >> ainsley are, don't confuse
them. [laughter] ainsley: there are so many great colleges in north carolina. davidson has a reputation of being extremely tough to get into, a great school. but they have this course now, and it's called a abolish the police. can you believe that, in north carolinasome we asked the lieutenant governor, mark robinson, earlier. steve asked him about this, this is your lieutenant governor weighing in. >> the title of the course itself is very concerning. what we have seen is over the last couple years with this anti-police rhetoric, conservative folks, conservatives and folks on my side of the aisle, we have been screaming from the rafters that this is going to have treadful effects for many -- dreadful effects for many communities around the nation, and that has proven true. we see this huge spike in crime now ever since we've been browbeating and den grating and defunding our police, agencies across the country, and we see
the dreadful effects now. ainsley: lara, weigh in on this, on the course, acing bollish the police. >> yeah. first of all, the name is terrible. i cannot believe that a college institution is allowed to do this. i think it's awful. but when did we stop educating our kids, ainsley, and instead start indoctrinating them? that is exactly what this feels like to me. it's funny, you know, it is about police, this whole course, apparently. they do not even have a police officer coming to talk to the kids. wouldn't you think that if you were teaching a course on policing, they actually ask in this course what is policing. shouldn't we have a law enforcement officer there to answer that question for these kids? but the answer to that is they don't want him there. they don't want a man or woman there that is a law enforcement officer because it would actually show that law enforcement works. you go to any democrat-run, major city in america where they have taken funding away from their police, and you see crime
skyrocketing. people leaving these cities in droves because we know that policing works. and instead of actually teaching people to hate the police, what about teaching our youth to respect police officers? gosh, i have to think that if instead of teaching us to hate one another we'd teach respect, gosh, there would be so many fewer instances, you would think, of bad situations like we've seen happen before. let's all respect and love one another and come to the conclusion that is true, that it is because of our law enforcement that we get to live in the greatest country in the world. they keep us safe and, gosh, i hate to see something like this happen especially, you're right, ainsley, in my home state of north carolina. lawrence: we reached out to the college, and this is what they had to say: we focus on studies that are liberating and dedicate ourselves to the quest for truth. the offering of any class, whatever its title, reflects that, covers the subject we're studying. you know, lara, it's not just
this course, it is what's happening on the college campuses -- can i've covered it for years, it's happening in high schools today. the indoctrination that is taking place. do you think conservatives are going to start taking this issue seriously now and beating these schools to the punch, educating at home? >> i think they are. i talk to so many people who in the past year, i mean, that's one thing i think that covid really did, is it showed people that you can home school your kids. and, gosh, what a great thing to do especially when you see the indoctrination, when you see the critical race theory that they're teaching kids in school teaching us to hate one another instead of love one another. i think that you're to going to see more and more people start to home school their kids especially when you've got courses like this on college campuses, especially whenever they have full mask mandates now for kids in school coming up starting in the fall. i think we're going to to see this on the rise, for sure. steve: speak of masks, it was
during, i believe, a football game where the governor of the great state of florida, ron desantis, was seen not wearing a mask. and then later he said how the hell am i going to drink a beer with my mask on? [laughter] that is one of the slogans that, on his web site as a fundraiser, he's selling beer cooseys and t-shirts, stuff like that, that sells for $12 as we look at -- ainsley: whatever you call them. [laughter] she says koozie, i bet. >> that's right. i don't know what you're talking about, steve. [laughter] steve: i'm just saying. i'm representing the other half of america. [laughter] look at randi weingarten, the head of the big teachers' union. she said -- regarding his merchandise. disgusting. millions of floridians are going to die from ron desantis' ignorance, and he's choosing to profit from it.
he doesn't care about floridians, he cares about furthering his own cool agenda. what codo you say to the head of the teachers' union? >> well, millions is quite a number. i'm not sure where she got that. the head of the teachers' union maybe needs a math course, because i don't actually see how that's possible. [laughter] aside from that, look, here's what i have to say. i worked for my father-in-law's campaign, and i know we were constantly trying to come up with things that we thought people would want to buy so we could raise money. i guarantee you -- yeah, i guarantee you this is going to sell out. every person, not just in florida, but across america, is going to want one of these koozies, steve.
