promises for the sivs and americans that have been promised, what does that say to the rest of the world. jillian: we have got to help them that's for sure. retired marine corps sergeant ryan rogers please keep us updated on his situation we hope for good news when we finally get it. thank you. and "fox & friends" starts right now have. a good day. ♪ >> the state department has issued a security alert. >> warning americans near the kabul airport to leave immediately as a top official says there is a high threat of a terror attack. >> can you aterrorism in americans are safer today than they were before the u.s. withdrew? >> our highest priority right now is evacuating american citizens. >> this country is less safe today than they were 20 years ago based upon the actions that have just taken place. >> our southern border remains wide open, disturbing discovery was just made there. >> border patrol vehicle it's a total fake, being driven by a human smuggler. >> a young father is shot and

3:02 am
kitty logan is live with the very latest. it sound like they are saying get away from the airport because there is a threat at three different gates of car bombs. >> that's right. this is a very specific threat coming from several western governments but despite that there are still crowds of thousands of desperate people at the airport in kabul. another 18,000 were evacuated yesterday by the u.s. and that effort continues. the american government saying as we heard there that its own citizens still have priority but this latest alert makes that protest all the more risky and more urgent. >> our highest priority right now is evacuating american citizens, evacuating afghans who worked with us, and afghans who are at risk with a priority around women and children. each day and night we continue to evacuate thousands of people understanding that it is, it is
3:03 am
risky for them to be there. it is a dangerous and difficult mission. but it must be seen through and we intend to see it through as best as we can. >> now, the next problem is that it is going to take time to draw down those thousands of troops and all that is going to slow down the evacuation process, too. an attack could also put a stop to all of this. the background for, this while the taliban released thousands of prisoners when they took kabul those extremists are amongst them they may want to take the opportunity to target u.s. and other western troops as they leave. the taliban has denied there is imminent attack. here in the u.k. the government is backing the warning of a possible terrorist attack saying the troops on the ground will do all they can to try to keep people safe. back to you guys. steve: all right, kitty, thank you very much. you mentioned the number a minute ago, brian, some confusion.
3:04 am
ainsley: mixed messages. steve: how many americans 4,000. talking about americans they tried to clean that up and said 1500. on the front page of the "new york times" today it illustrates so large a problem this is and how daunting it is because that's the cover of the "new york post" we are going to talk about that in a moment. there are, you know, we had heard last week there could be up to 88,000 people who work for the federal government in afghanistan, translators and things like that. well, now, according to the "new york times," it could be 250,000 who are not evacuated and will not be evacuated until past the deadline, and that number could actually be a million. so no wonder the administration is probably behind the scenes freaking out because it's like there is no way we could get a quarter of a million or a million people out by midnight tuesday. ainsley: tom cotton says they are spinning these numbers he said come tuesday, which is august 3 st, the deadline, he said if there are americans that
3:05 am
remain there, he predicts that the administration will say well, that's because they wanted to stay. brian: think about this, how do we make sure that we even the last flight, even if we did have everybody on the last flight, how can we secure the place? the tuckers were supposed to secure the airport. they are islamic. they are a member of nato. last night they left they're beginning to leave in great numbers. they are not sticking around. everybody else is picking up the space and going outside the wire of the airport to pick people up. the u.s. evacuated 82,300 people. do you know how many are americans? roughly 4500. which means they don't know at all exactly. do you really think these even numbers are accurate? tony blinken yesterday says we have between 500 and 1500 who need to be evacuated. really? and then as steve mentioned? a briefer came out and said 4100 are still in afghanistan. but then jen psaki came out and said 11,000 self-identified americans, they're the best, are in afghanistan. ainsley: which numbers do we believe? brian: which numbers do we believe? how about this?
3:06 am
they have no idea. then you get an indication from the secretary of state that he is kind of blaming the americans. we have been telling them how dangerous afghanistan is and meanwhile we have 24 students from california who congressman issa with his military background and former armed forces committee member is using all those contacts to try to get them out. but it is hell on earth inside when you heard the reports from those two congressman, those veterans that went in and found out for themself how bad this is whatever you think it is, it's worse. then today's "new york post," you see what it is like on the ground as a former army ranger went, in went out, and described it. ainsley: is he a volunteer rescuer in afghanistan. he describes the chaos at the airport. a death medal show with one exit and the place is on fire. and if you read the article he says it's more like trying to pick up someone who doesn't speak your language out of a crowd, at a f'ing death penalty concert at madison square garden and it's at triple capacity and
3:07 am
only one door is open and the place is on fire. steve: right. he was at the harmid karzai international airport. you should read it, it's so compelling of the eyewitness accounts so compelling. shows you exactly what is going on there. he talks about how it sounds like he was trying to escort two people of interest on to one of those flights. and so, he gets to the americans and he says okay, they don't have visas, they have applied for them, just put them on the flight. he found out later that they were rejected because they did not have the paperwork and next thing you know, what happens? they send these two people of interest outside the gate. so the people he had risked his life to try to get on a plane, the u.s. government said sorry, not going to be able to do it. he also writes: i have deployed 15 times and this is the worst living and working conditions i have seen for u.s. troops. i'm a little used to this kind
3:08 am
of work, unlike the many young marines and other service members who are having to sentence these afghans. they tell somebody, hey, you can't come in. and it's like telling the person is he probably going to die. these kids, the marines and the soldiers, are worn the f. out. he would know pause he was there. brian: there was 2200 in country when we decided to pull out of country. then we put in 58800. as two of days ago we are starting to get our marines and army officers out of there. they're exhausted in just a week. can you imagine over the next five days we are not going to be able to get our people out. democratic congressman first termers elissa slotkin and mikey sharyl a former u.s. naval pilot and slotkin's case former assistant secretary of defense they were at a signing ceremony yesterday with president biden. listen we need to speak to you. okay. we cannot get these people out this deadline has onto be pushed back he was very firm and very engaged and he listened to us but is he not going to change
3:09 am
his mind. the question is what is it going to take for this disengaged president who was clueless and disinterested to what is happening on the ground to back up. it's almost we are hostage to his indifference. this just can't stand. who this that administration is responsible enough to do the right thing? ainsley: the u.s. embassy sent a security aletter to all the folks that are americans that are still trapped in afghanistan and they gave them this advice. be aware of your surroundings at all times especially in large crowds this was after the security threats. follow the instructions of local authorities have a contingency plan for emergencies. monitor your local media for breaking events. enroll in the smart travel traveler enrollment program to receive alerts for emergencies and follow the department of state on facebook and twitter. and in addition to that we are learning this morning that there are more than 20 students, 16 parents or teachers that are stranded there in afghanistan, and they are from a school district out in california. the cajun valley.
3:10 am
they went over there for a summer vacation. the superintendent is now meeting with darrell issa to try to get them home. steve: right. we are going to have somebody from the school district on with us in the next hour of "fox & friends." i'm sure you saw last night, "new york times" talked to the taliban spokesman about what are your plans? how are you going to get this government started? he is the same guy who said there is no proof that usama bin laden was in on 9/11, which is extraordinary. brian: someone should tell bin laden because he took responsibility. steve: he did a number of times. he said the taliban will allow women to return to school and to work but they have got to have a head covering. he also said that music will be banned but women need to take male chaperones on trips that take several days. now, clearly, that's one of the reasons why the international community is holding up all the money back to afghanistan women's rights. and what is going to happen to -- you know, girls used to not be allowed to go school. our vice president who is in
3:11 am
vietnam, donated a million doses of covid vaccine, was asked about women's rights in afghanistan very vegas answer, e answer, very broad answer here is what she said moments ago. >> what will the organization do to support women who have not permitted to leaf afghanistan. >> we have said before and i will say again that we are going to do what we are able to do in terms of the evacuation process, but, in addition to that we are able to do politically and diplomatically to secure and to continue to work on the protection of women and children in that region, including working with our allies. and it is no secret that many of our allies are prepared to join with us in ensuring that we keep a focus on that issue in that region and do everything that we can and to do it together as a global community. steve: it's going to be tough though pause many of our allies have already left poland and
3:12 am
belgium ended their evacuation. sounds like turkey is next and germany probably tomorrow. ainsley: there is afghan news anchor, female. she said she is extremely worried about women's rights now in afghanistan. she was on "fox & friends first" earlier. watch. >> before the taliban come, we had a normal life [inaudible] now we don't have any rights. woman who are in afghanistan they don't have any rights. every >> part of that interview that steve referred to talked about the future. the good news is this is going to make aoc feel great. going to focus on climate change and world security. knowing that the taliban is working towards climate change,
3:13 am
is really heartening to me. so now i know this whole mission has been worth it also, what about the president's snarky answer to the nbc reporter peter alexander who said what are you going to do to get all the americans out? he said oh, you will be the first to know let you know and then he giggles. just shows how unbelievably callus and stubborn this guy is. and isolated. he is focusing on working the phones on some reconciliation package we don't need. he does not understand this is vietnam to the tenth power and it's on his resume. and the american people know it. how else can you explain 58% approval going down to 41%. and that's suffolk "u.s.a. today" who is extremely kind to the democrats. ainsley: getting back to the women's rights issue, there was a medic on one of the planes, one of the c-17s two actually who helped deliver a baby. they helped rescue the mother. then she delivered a baby girl and she named the baby reach. that's at least being reported. which is the aircraft call sign.
3:14 am
but the lady the neonatal nurse that was on the plane that helped deliver the baby was on "fox & friends first" earlier. and she said it was so rewarding, it was one of the highlights of her career to rescue a mother and then she delivers a baby girl, knowing that she is pulling them out of the sharia law and the taliban. steve: out of all of that turmoil and all of that awfulness a miracle that a baby is born. ainsley: i know. steve: apparently i didn't realize this they named her reach because the c-17 cargo plane the code names are reach and then a number. so it was reach 17. you know, reach 17 is going to be a tough name for a little girl so instead reach was born on board a c-17. brian: that's something frank zappa might have named his kids. steve: reach unit as opposed to space unit. that's true. maybe their kids will be space unit. steve: 14 minutes after the top of the hour on this very busy thursday morning. this is heart-breaking.

all-night protection. can you imagine 24 hours without heartburn? ainsley: a washington state school district backs down after it forces student athletes wear appearing kel monitors during practice as a part of a plan to trace covid-19. school officials shelving that program last night after so much push back from the parents saying, quote: we will not put them back into place at all. we are going to allow the coaches and parents to make the decision. here to react is mother of an eatonton high school volleyball player recall city council candidate ari hoffman. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. ainsley: good morning. nice, how did you hear about it. i know you have a big problem with it how did you hear about it? >> i dropped my daughter off at practice on monday for volleyball. she had sent me a text saying hey, mom, they're putting an ankle monitor on me. this is really weird.
3:45 am
so that is how i found out. ainsley: so then you drove to the school and what happened next? >> i drove to the school and confronted the athletic director gavin and he did tell me did indeed put a tracking monitor on my child. he apologized and said he would speak with the coach that did it. it was very short and sweet. there was no answers for who was accountable for it what repercussions there were. and there was no consent. i had not signed consent and he really didn't have any other answers besides an apology. ainsley: as a parent if you hear your child has a tracking device on them, usually your child is in prison, right, or out of prison and being watched by the government. so, ari, i know you broke this story, how did you hear about it. >> what happened was nicci actually posted a picture of the tracking device on social media. one of my listeners called me and told me have you seen this thing? i checked it out and got in touch with nicci right away but i also called a friend of mine
3:46 am
who is a member of the eatonville school board and i spoke to them and said is this happening in the school board was just sass surprised as anybody else. they knew this program was being considered but they didn't know it had been implemented. it seems that the superintendent of the school and the athletic director took it on theirselves in order to implement this program and the school board had no idea it was actually finalized and in the works at the school itself. ainsley: nicci, i know you have received backlash what are people saying. >> they are upset that i'm taking away children's football season which is absolutely not what i'm trying to do. if these parents want to have these tracers on their children, that's their deal, not mine. my child is absolutely not wearing one. and i would never okay that and i was not a given choice whether she was going to wear it or not. and i think that is completely wrong and absolutely horrifying. ainsley: ari, the community spoke out. and now they have implemented this change. now it's up to the coaches and teachers.
3:47 am
have you been talking about this on radio and what are your listeners saying? >> we spoke about it finance not just the volleyball team. the football team originally who was supposed to have these on and these devices were designed for construction helmets. they were designed for manufacturing workers. they were not designed for schools. and when you go to the company's website it doesn't say anything about schools at all. so people are blown away by this because they wonder if this was pilot program for the state? if this means that they were thinking about putting them in the classroom not just for the athletes? people have a lot of concerns. also thinking about football players with these things on their legs, wrestlers, volleyball teams, what if they trip? what if they fall? what if it starts making a beeping noise and distracted during a contact sport. a lot of liability here and nobody was fully consulted with regard to all the pros and cons of this. it wasn't a transparent process and they are wondering what's next? ainsley: i'm sure a lot of money was forked out to pay for these devices, taxpayer dollars.
3:48 am
i don't know how -- if you are a wrestler, you are on top of each other, would it be beeping the whole time? >> you would think it would be. ainsley: or a volleyball player, you are diving for the ball? >> right. all of a sudden you hear this beeping and somebody is coming at you from the decide. you are distracted. i think it could toledo injuries as well. ainsley: ains nicci and ari thank you for coming on this morning. >> my pleasure. >> you are welcome. ainsley: janice dean has a look at the weather. janice: something brewing in the gulf of mexico i think it's going to become a hurricane this weekend. a couple areas of concern. imminent concern here is what is going to move through the yucatan channel and possibly impact well i think it is going to impact the gulf coast. it hasn't been named yet. but i'm pretty confident that this is going to be a pretty big deal over the next couple of days. sea surface temperatures extraordinarily warm, especially along the gulf coast. so, this is something we're going to have to watch. i think it's going to be a hurricane. i do think it's going to impact the gulf coast tuesday, wednesday, bringing not only heavy rain but hurricane force

[chuckle] >> joe biden has a new policy it's called america left behind. >> joe biden and kamala harris are set to campaign against recall. >> let joe biden come out here and praise the wonderful job gavin newsom has done on crime,

on homelessness, on the rise of gas taxes. i welcome that. >> a washington state high school tried slap ankle monitors on athletes help with covid tracing. >> i think that is completely wrong and absolutely horrifying. >> football legend herschel walker declaring his senate candidacy in the great state of georgia. >> i don't want to sit on the sideline anymore because this is not the america i grew up in. brian: brand new photo showing an american shorld soldier holding a gate closed sign as the u.s. tells hundreds of people to leave kabul airport immediately. steve: the airport is under a terror bomb threat that could happen within hours, they say. up to 1500 americans now estimated to be stranded in afghanistan, including students and their parents from a california school districts who we will talk to the school district this hour. ainsley: this photo shows a plane leaving kabul nearly empty, flying evacuees to you
4:02 am
began can a. let's get straight to jacqui heinrich who is live with the latest. good morning, jacqui. >> good morning to you guys. a senior u.s. official confirmed reports to me on condition of anonymity saying the threat of a vehicle bomb or suicide bomb isis k or another fill i can't tell more likely than unlikely minister. it that could come within just potentially just hours. leave the kabul airport. they tweeted due to threats outside the kabul airport. u.s. citizens should avoid traveling the airport. east gate or north gate should leave immediately. tear firing tear gas water canon people gathered there according to the associated press. the warning coming as covert missions to rescue some 500 to 1500 americans who remain in the
4:03 am
cup trip. several other cup tris belgium, denmark and netherlands are completing last evacuation flights. yesterday, 356 seat chartered plane intended to evacuate afghans left kabul nearly empty because they just couldn't get the taliban, people through taliban checkpoints and also the u.s. military gates. the president is sticking to that self-imposed august 31st withdrawal deadline but asking for contingency plans should the mission not be complete by then. the vice president spoke overnight in vietnam. >> our plan is evacuating american citizens, evacuating afghans who worked with us and afghans who are at risk with a priority around women and children. each day and night. we continue to evacuate thousands of people understanding that it is it is risky for them to be. there it must be seen through
4:04 am
and we i object toned see through as best as we can. >> dozens of california students and parents are stranded in afghanistan after taking a summer trip over there. specific information about that group. back to you guys. steve: thank you very much, jackie, that's to say the least. jen psaki was asked about those families from california. said what are you talking about? i have no idea. when jackie just put out that picture of the 345 seater airplane, that had been chartered by d.c. philanthropist trying to get as many people out. the reason it is empty is there is so much chaos and they were -- so many people were stopped at the checkpoints, the taliban checkpoints, they could not get through. you know, they had people who were supposed to be on that plane. one passenger crawled through sewage type make it on that plane. and about 50 people were on it. there was one other, 240 seater that he had chartered. heading to the ukraine, 70 seats
4:05 am
empty though because u.s. soldiers would not let the passengers on board. it still is chaotic. ainsley: some seats empty. and those are lives that we could rescue from the country. they just can't get through these gates. steve: chaos. ainsley: two iraq veterans who are congressman. they were criticized by the administration for going over to kabul. they wanted to go and see exactly what was going on. they have been two of the toughest critics about this pullout of afghanistan. and you have seth moulton democrat from massachusetts as well as representative or congressman peter meijer who is a republican from michigan. he talks about the troops on the ground and he praises them. listen. >> you have individuals there in kabul who evacuated the u.s. embassy with moments notice. i know soldiers who left behind their boots. they're wearing tennis shoes right now. others in the same uniform they had when they evacuated the embassy two weeks ago because they didn't have time to grab
4:06 am
their rough sack. they went into kabul airport chaos and pandemonium. overrunning the runway and pivoted to not only negotiating and having to deal with the taliban as frankly a security partner, rather than adversary, but also execute one of the logistical their stories need to be told and i am so damn proud to be an american what i saw on the ground in kabul. brian: keep in mind, if they need any equipment, the haqqani network is walking around with it maybe they might be able to borrow one of the outfits left behind fill up a plane with all those people inside the airport
4:07 am
that don't veefn to go outside the airport. they fill up a plane. keep in mind, too. you have a president of the united states who has a state department that cannot tell you how many people need to get out. the democratic lawmakers lisa slotkin and cheryl u.s. naval helicopter pilot. prosecutor, democrat. talked to president biden yesterday. saying listen, you are not going to be able to get people out. tough extend the deadline. he said thanks for asking you about i'm not going to do it. on top of that, they are trying to convince them to expand the dead line, saying to yourself, think logically, when you try to get out by the 31st, who is going to be the last person watching security as we leave the country? it was supposed to be the turks. they are leaving. they are not securing the airport. so who is securing the airport and, is there any military
4:08 am
assets out to stop this would be suicide bomb attack that's supposed to happen in the next couple hours? i thought we had over the horizon capability. can we get over the horizon? steve: well, regarding those two members of congress who went, it was pretty clear from the leaders on both sides, they are encouraging their members not to go. and apparently there was another trip unauthorized but bipartisan they were going to go. they haven't gone. although both sides say you know what? there could be members who freelance. what's interesting about seth moulton, the democrat from massachusetts is he told the "new york times" last night. he said he was defending the trip. even though he hoped to get joe biden it pentagon. the trip changed his mind we need to have a working relationship with the tall pan. as we told you the said a could
4:09 am
be a quarter of a million people over there we need to get over here. we need a working relationship with the taliban owe also said and this was eye opener the task force handing out visas so overwhelmed by requests from members of congress. while the state department has bungled this from the get-go. people who have a connection to different leaders are contacting those people in washington, d.c. asking for. special immigrant visas because that essentially is there lifeline. ainsley: so many mixed messages, there are 1500, you will hear a briefer. psaki has said 11,000, what's the real number? i don't even think that they know. but people are wondering what next wednesday is going to look like. the deadline is tuesday, the 31st, so what happens on wednesday? the taliban takes over? do they start killing people who were left behind? this is a question we all want answered and kamala is laughing
4:10 am
about the situation while she ison her trip to vietnam. joe biden is joking about the situation when the reporter asked him about the people left behind. watch this. >> what will you do if americans are still there after the deadline? >> you will be the first person i will call. [chuckle] brian: hysterical. what a sense of humor. steve: interesting thing about that we had to put the audio together. the white house apparently cut the feed as soon as peter alexander of nbc asked that question. somebody at the white house just goes turned it off that's how we heard what the president did say with that snarky answer. brian: i don't understand whether a seth moulton and peter meijer's theory on this. never get everyone out. get out and show compliance. have you met the taliban? how will you characterizing them? if we don't -- the minute we leave, we lose total control of the thousands left behind. if you are one of the thousands,
4:11 am
you don't want to depend on the taliban's diplomacy arm to get our people out. the minute we leave. we are done with -- unless we want to just come in and drop a jay dam on the palace which might be a good idea to be honest or threaten it. those people are gone forever unless you just want to write the taliban huge billion dollars checks for the next 10, 15 years because we know they love that. steve: that could actually be how we do it. because there is a big story. brian: drop a bomb or pay it off? steve: in the "new york times" there is a story that the taliban is actually reaching out to former afghan leaders people like harmid karzai people in the government the last 20 years. they are there. we would like you to be part of helping us get into the international community so we can be recognized as an actual country so that we can get the money going again. because there are, you know, the money has stopped. there are billions in international reserves. and it's being held up because
4:12 am
of the worry of what the taliban is going to do to women and girls. and so, the thinking by the taliban is, if we include these people who used to actually get the checks from the international community and say they are part of our team, maybe that will open things up. brian: here's the problem. the taliban already are beating up our people. do you see the shot of the bloody australians who had paperwork and tried to get to the door? and they couldn't get to the airport, were forced back? the story of this the afghan's woman brother tried to get to the door couldn't get there? don't worry about what the taliban says. watch what they do. what the u.n. just did is condemn them for their savage action because they are getting reports beyond kabul how they are chopping off limbs and murdering people in front of their family already. so, i don't care what they are doing with abdullah abdullah or harmid karzai, the fact is they are just as brutal. and if they have let all of our people go, i might be open to
4:13 am
maybe the new taliban. but right now if they just allowed our people to go, we could get them all out. ainsley: listen to what mark mek meadows says about biden's new policy. >> joe biden has a new policy called america left behind. it's a left behind policy. he left behind billions of dollars worth of humvees and u.s. equipment. he left behind americans. he left behind our allies and quite frankly, you know, when you start to look at what he has been involved with, no wonder his polling is going down. but americans are now starting to understand what president trump and many of us that supported him knew all along, is you can't run the country from the basement. and today they cut off his mic when he went to talk, he had one question. they cut off his mic. i mean, can you believe it could get this bad this quickly? steve: they did cut off his mic. so the big question is how many people will would he be able to
4:14 am
get out by the deadline midnight tuesday into wednesday as we heard from the congressman who went over there. there is no way we can get everybody out. there is also a story out this morning that apparently the cia and u.s. military are working together to chopper people in and out of the kabul area. they are using military choppers but the operations are being run by the cia and the pentagon says they are coordinating with the taliban on airport security, unclear if they're working with them regarding the extraction. it's interesting, the germans who it sounds like the germans could actually leave afghanistan tomorrow. they have been extracting their people. they were going to use the airbus choppers. those big mh-6s. they said, you know what? we need to be a little more tactical and closer so they borrowed from the u.s. military the little bird helicopters because they can actually be
4:15 am
flown down streets below roof levels and they have got lots of weapons. so the germans have reached out to us and we are helping provide extraction methods for the german citizens. ainsley: afghan evacuee with ties to isis was detained at air base hanger in qatar, he was one of the ones that fled kabul. thank goodness we got him. but it makes you wonder how many others have jumped on these flights that are connected to isis. 100 other evacuees were ordered to undergo further security screenings. 100. brian: cup nell britain one on the terror watch list landed in france they arrested him right away. what's it going to be like in afghanistan? what do you think? shear a growth mohammed former afghan official on the terror threat afghanistan as they see it happening. here is an excerpt from it afghanistan has now become the las vegas of terrorists as the radicals and extremists. people are all over the world. radicals and extremists celebrating the taliban victory. thanks joe biden. this is pagan the way for the extremists to come to
4:16 am
afghanistan. they went on to say the united nations had a report in june concluded that those thousands from central arab north caucus pakistan, they leave china, china is keeping an eye on that. most associations are with the taliban and al-qaeda. keep in mind, as you watch the haqqani network who are as bad as it gets. affiliated directly with al-qaeda. they are wearing our equipment full gear walking around providing security in kabul. the taliban wants us to think they turned a page and are going to focus on climate change and seth moulton believes and i actually love the fact that these two went there. i just cannot -- i have to challenge the fact that we're going to be better off getting our people out once we leave. i don't know if you seen hostage negotiations with terrorists? they usually don't go well. ainsley: one of the few female interpreters was on our show earlier and brian had interviewed her. she had also earlier been captured by the taliban. her father with the afghan forces helped free her. but she says in retaliation,
4:17 am
because she is now in america, they are going after her brother. listen. the coalition forces get out the 31st. that's lots of dangerous form my family and for my brother over there. because there is no safety. there is no hope in afghanistan right now. i never think of -- that the taliban will take over the capital of afghanistan. i never thought that coalition force would leave afghanistan. brian: right. she is let down direct and resigned to the fact that her brother got beat up yesterday going to the airport gate. now, michael waltz just wrote me. he is watching us right now. he said members of congress are going over. the administration are going
4:18 am
over the administration because the administration won't leave. he said he was up all night with american citizens that were turned away at multiple gates. moulton and hire are wrong. all these people including americans become leverage for the taliban. we cannot leave this country without our people. what don't they understand? that is the american east those. we don't leave -- what are they thinking? steve: joe biden did say i got a back-up plan. asked the pentagon guys if we are not going to finish the job midnight tuesday into wednesday, contingency so maybe that's what's going to happen. brian: he said i told him contingency plan he also told me to get out by the 31st. what's the contingency plan. ainsley: the majority of america i would say sides with you on this because they want all americans to come home. brian: 24 california high school students to stay in afghanistan because we are in a rush to gate
4:19 am
out because joe biden wants to pass a reconciliation package. he has a lot on his mind and he loves to go to delaware on the weekends and he can't do that with an ongoing situation in afghanistan. steve: only 24% of americans think that it is going well over there. everybody is frustrated. let's see what goes on going forward. ainsley: i can't believe who would say it's going well? let's hand it over to jillian. jillian has more headlines for us. jillian: let's begin with tragic story out of florida. a family vacation take as deadly turn after a young father is shot and killed in miami beach protecting his wife and baby. the suspected gunman tamarius davis admitted he was high on mushrooms and targeted the family at random while they were eating at a cafe. he is charged with second degree murder and was denied bond. the victim, dustin wakefield is being remembered as a man of faith and, quote, the best dad ever. chicago mayor lori lightfoot facing pushback on her covid-19 vaccine mandate for city

4:36 am
still the border czar. we still have an absolute disaster on our southern border. no, she is over in southeast asia. she doesn't want to answer any direct questions because she knows what we all know, they are not going to be able to do anything to help the women and girls in afghanistan now. thanks to decisions made by this administration. the basic fundamental human rights of women and girls in afghanistan have vanished overnight. women are being subjected to torture. they are not allowed to get educated. they are not allowed to have a job. girls are forced to be child brides as young as 9 years old. the taliban is a terrorist organization. the idea that we are somehow going to work with them on anything is crazy especially for women and girls rights and it's ridiculous that we heard that answer from our vice president. brian: no. but i guess you missed the remarks yesterday by the spokesperson for the taliban. they are going to focus on world security and climate change.
4:37 am
>> i can't wait to see solar panels and what kind of deal they can cut? >> so ridiculous. i don't understand why we as america are legitimizing a terrorist organization as the government of a country or in any way at all. why are we taking the taliban at their word on anything? we shouldn't at all. of course they don't care about those things, brian. it's ridiculous. they are simply trying to push america out so they can fully take over a country osm pair was us further. it will become the center for terrorism. it is a threat to the entire world. but how ridiculous are our vice president is nowhere to be found. gosh our president is nowhere to be found. he can't even answer basic questions. he won't take basic questions on a crisis they are making. ainsley: your father-in-law obviously was president. is she not allowed to talk

tuesday. let's go straight to jacqui heinrich live. reporter: good morning, to you guys. a senior u.s. official confirmed those reports to me on condition of being anonymous, that a vehicle threat, threat rather of a vehicle bomb or a suicide bomb over the last 24 hours has been measured as more likely than unlikely, that threat coming possibly from isis or another affiliate, the british armed forces minister told the bbc that could happen within just a matter of hours. overnight the u.s. embassy warned citizens not to come to the airport, to avoid the gates and to scan crowds, be aware of their surroundings. they tweeted, due to threats outside the kabul airport, u.s. citizens should avoid traveling to the airport. those at the abby gate, east gator north gate now should leave immediately. the warnings come as the u.s. conducts limited covert missions to rescue some 500 to 1,500 americans who still remain in the country, and several

5:04 am
house about that yesterday, it does not have specific information about that group in the press briefing. back to you guys. steve: jackie thank you very much. so, the united states and everybody else is saying don't go to the airport. don't go to the airport because of the terror threat and also, unless you got travel documents you aren't getting anywhere. yesterday, the defense secretary for the united kingdom said hey, there are tens of thousands of people who want to leave the country. you're not going to get out through the airport. it's just a mess. go to the border. so this morning i was just looking there's an update from the border with pakistan, there are thousands of afghans with travel documents and they are crossing into pakistan, and apparently, the taliban they say okay let's see your documents if they've been to pakistan before and they got a valid visa they are just walking right across and so that's one of the things that they are doing because even though the white house says look we've been able to fly out 100,000 people during the last week or so, it's still not

brian: all right so we know this. we have between 500 and 1,500 people there. they don't know for sure. we know anthony blinken went out of his way to really fault americans for not getting out because they have had different e-mails out there telling people they should leave and they also said get to the airport while saying don't get to the airport. ainsley: no one predicted this though. brian: what do you mean? ainsley: he's saying they should have left. americans should have gotten my message and should have left but we didn't know this was going to happen. brian: well yeah, but it was up to us to plan, and these genius es that said bug out of bagram airport and didn't try to take it back afterwards even though we got all the fire power in the world can someone remind our secretary of defense, and the president, if he could pay attention long enough that we are the super power, we beat them in every single confrontation over the last 20 years. now we're pretending like we've run out of ammunition. why don't we just say this. on the palace unless all our
5:07 am
people get out, now for others to say well we got to get on the goodwill because we can't possibly get the thousands of people out, we've lost entire leverage if we get people out. who thinks it's a good idea to abandon americans in a hostile terroristic regime? i'd like to see how many hands go up on the national security council and this is what tom cotton told us yesterday on radio, they got to leave in two days because that's when the military has got to start packing up to go, because you can't get civilians out up until the last minute and then get yourself out. my question is, the plan had the turks in control of kabul airport. last night it became clear that turkey is leaving so who is going to be on the last plane out of kabul? not americans. out of the 80,000 we got out, only 4,500 are americans. steve: right. brian: unbelievable serious situation and what go they want to talk about at the white house

the reconciliation package. steve: well because they view that as a win and what we're looking at right there is a -- ainsley: major loss. steve: public relations debacle. brian: made vietnam look like a great story. steve: and our vice president is in vietnam right now ironically. here is the thing, while the administration is caging about the number of people, americans, who are over there, they say 1,500, although we heard 4,000 yesterday -- ainsley: mixed messages. steve: we do know there are 24 california school kids there with their 16 parents from california, and they are strand ed, and the reason we know this story is because they go to school out in california, and they had flights home, but they didn't know the government was going to fall, and so they called the school district and said do you know what? we can't get to the airport, and so will you please not give away our seats in the classroom? we were talking to the president of the cahone valley union school district where all these kids go to school. a woman by the name of tamera ot
5:09 am
ero and they've all got their fingers crossed they get them back but right now these people are in hiding because they're worried about the taliban. here is tamera otero from california. >> they are worried, very worried, scared as you can imagine. they went to visit family. we're told that most of them are safe with family and friends, but they're unable to get to the airport currently. we are working with congressman issa's office who has been a great support to help us. we did have one family return tuesday evening. ainsley: darrel issa' office says we will not stop until we have answers and actions. brian: he tweeted out this. at least 24 students are strand ed in afghanistan. you heard the word stranded, right? i'm working diligently to determine the best way to help those trapped kids return home safely. i won't stop until we get
5:10 am
answers, and action. they had tickets to come home on august 15. obviously, they were too scared to get out. so the taliban actually wanted to show sincerity in a situation like that, you escort, you could escort them there. you could locate them and allow u.s. escort them back. last night blackhawks went up. we only got a couple dozen people out i think three blackhawk flights and a lot more room on that so to me there's got to be huge extractions, very quickly. ainsley: what's sad is to know that those 20 some odd students are there, trying to get out and you see images of the empty plane. there were only 50 people on this plane. do we have that picture? jackie showed it earlier. look at this just a few people on the plane there were a total of 50 that actually got on plane but so many empty seats it could be occupied by those people who are fearful. steve: that plane was chartered by a d.c. philanthropist and the reason it's empty, they had

people assigned to every seat but those people could not get into the airport because they've closed the gates. same guy apparently booked another 240 seater to the ukraine, 70 seats went empty because the u.s. soldiers would not allow them in. regarding the school kids, apparently one family did make it out and they are all on special visas for u.s. military service and the dod considers them friendly. now, as they take off from kabul , where do they go? well you be surprised at the number of people who are already on american soil. there's a story this morning in the washington post that apparently 8,600 people, close to 9,000 afghan refugees have already landed at dulles airport just outside washington d.c. they're tested for covid and on tuesday, they tested 900. 11 people had it and they went into isolation, so where do they go after they leave the iconic d
5:12 am
ulles? well, they are expecting about 15,000 in all at quantico and at fort pickett, and that's where they are going to be processed with the sib, the special immigrant visas and for the americans who traveled on the same planes what they are doing is apparently putting them up at the airport marriott, but nonetheless, the story is, there are already close to 9,000 afghans in the d.c. area. ainsley: there's a cute story this morning, if you want to talk about, a positive story, that is coming out of this. on one of the c-17 planes we've heard about babies being born, there were three as of last weekend. a baby was born, a mother was rescued she got on a plane and had a baby girl on the flight, and the two medics that helped deliver that baby, they were on "fox & friends" first earlier, listen to this. >> our focus was on the mom, whose under all these blankets surrounded by her fellow women
5:13 am
and myself and captain brimer, who was unable to be with us today, and dove under and assess ed the situation and had a baby within four minutes. >> to have a baby come off a plane of evacuees, be born here, also come to our hospital and receive care as well, these are all things i'm very proud of, and i like that it showcases what we're capable of as a military medical force. ainsley: the female is a neonatal nurse as well, and serving our military, obviously she said it was so rewarding for her. one of the highlights of her career is to know she was rescuing not only the momma but the baby from afghanistan. steve: and with the c-17 the code names are reach and then a number. designating the particular airplane, and so the family decided to name the baby "reach" after the c-17 as a tribute to the evacuation flight that saved the babies life. ainsley: maybe we finally reached freedom. brian: a couple things. on these evacuees they got to be
5:14 am
thoroughly screened, they already found an isis member, how they got out, they also arrested somebody whose on the terror watch list in france, two over in britain, and you got to wonder in the haste to get people out and i understand the rush, nobody understands it better than us, you have to make sure that we're not bringing people that would do the 9/11 20 years ago. who would think that 19 flight students would go out of their way to kill so many americans and launch the war on terror? my goodness, 8,600 here already, how well are they screened, is there a process underway, what i've seen so far, with this administration, there are so unprepared i have zero confidence that these people are thoroughly screened but i have a huge heart for those people that have helped us and that are worthy of some type of refugee status and keep in mind, among the people that are not happy with that 31st taking action the house problem solvers caucus famously bipartisan all 50-plus have signed a letter saying
5:15 am
extend it, anthony gonzalez, a republican, abigail spamburger from virginia, a democrat pushing for this trying to getting through the head of vice president, now president joe biden, that this is, you can not leave on tuesday. we don't leave american soldiers behind let alone american civilians behind. ainsley: or even bowe bergdahl. we got him. brian: but we exchanged him. guess what? we lose all leverage if we leave how many billions are we going to need to get back kids and families if we get out right now steve: but it doesn't sound like we're going to wait until tuesday night. sounds like we're going to start the process in 36 hours. brian: if that happens the worst decision in american history, and he should be, your number one job is to keep americans safe. not abandon them in a terror regime. ainsley: i don't understand why we can't go into the streets of
5:16 am
afghanistan and grab our americans. brian: we've been doing it for 20 years. suddenly we're afraid to do it. steve: it's frustrating. brian: but the military is not allowed to do it. they would love to do it. let them do their job. steve: all right, it is quarter after the top of the hour and jillian joins us with her job which is the news. jillian: good morning so let's start off with this story more than 700 children spent three weeks or longer at the southern border shelters in mid-july. that's according to declarations filed in federal court. in one of the filings a 16- year-old boy said children were served raw meat and a took more than a month for him to be released to his father. the biden administration declared an emergency in march and setup shelters for the record number of kids crossing the southern border. >> police are searching for these three men accused of a violent robbery in new york city the nypd says a 14-year-old girl was home when the men forced their way in. they tied the teen up with usb
5:17 am
cables and ransacked the home running off with more than 7,000 dollars worth of jewelry aside from bruising on her wrists the teen is okay. police are asking anyone with information to come forward. >> at least 800,000 unvaccinated u.s. service members could fight, amc penalties up to a court martial if they don't get the covid-19 vaccine. the pentagon yesterday issuing a mandate for all u.s. military members to be fully vaccinated, adding covid to the list of required vaccinations. there's not yet an official deadline forevers members to get the shot. >> vice president kamala harris will hit the campaign trail tomorrow for california governor gavin newsom. ahead of the september 14 recall election. they will require everyone to show proof of covid vaccination or a recent negative test that their upcoming car rally even though no one will get out of their car. president biden will also setup for the governor those dates have not been announced, back to you. steve: if it's all hands-on deck the white house and democrats must be worried.
5:18 am
ainsley: they can't get out of their cars but they all have to be masked? [laughter] steve: that's the protocol. brian: right? steve: can't make it up. brian: you don't need a mask outside by the way. everyone is idle, anthony fauci even said that. good luck. ainsley: i wonder if they will have a good showing. steve: it'll be hard to cheer. all right, still ahead on this thursday, new york magazine claims the media manufactured the crisis in afghanistan, but sarah sanders believes that could not be further from the truth. you'll hear her say that, live, coming up next.

back governor gavin newsom tomorrow as he faces a recall election, on the event description rally, attendees have been told that they must provide proof of vaccine of a vaccination or a negative test within 72 hours for the driver and for all the attendees in the car. they have also been encouraged to bring a mask, all this despite the fact that they won't leave their own cars. joining us now, to react is fox news contributor tammy bruce. good morning, tammy. >> good morning, ainsley. it's a little crazy out there isn't it? ainsley: it really is. >> that's my home state and quite embarrassing. ainsley: aren't you glad you aren't there then? what do you think about kamala harris with the border crisis she barely went down there just for a few hours and jetted off to california now in vietnam, not addressing much, what's happening in afghanistan. she has such an opportunity to stand up for the women that are worried about what the taliban will do. >> yes, well, neither joe biden or kamala harris are people you want to call if you need to be
5:24 am
rescued so i'm not quite sure what gavin newsom is thinking. this is an obscene display of politicking that the most obscene we've seen in a very long time. this is a woman who is arguably, could be the most powerful woman in the world whose international press would view and take seriously, and she couldn't wait to get out of the country. yes if it was setup ahead of time, and yet america has essentially a hostage crisis. meetings can be changed and postponed. i think that the allies we were meeting with or at least the friends, would have understood why the vice president of the united states needed to stay and work on this kind of an emergency, but no. she couldn't do that. it's as though she's doing everything she can to not do her job, which of course, as a femininist i want women to be powerful and seen as powerful but what we have in this case is a woman who is avoiding doing
5:25 am
her job, and i think mostly, obviously, as we've seen with newsom coming up, it is mostly concerned about politics. ainsley: larry elders, the front runner there the conservative radio talk show host on fox all the time, he is doing very well in california, and in gavin does get recalled larry would probably be the winner of the governor's race. do you think that will happen? >> well, you know, i was involved in the grey davis recall and there were over 60 people on the ballot for that one, and people coalesced around arnold schwarzenegger. we see a coalescing it appears, around larry elder, but that was also, of course an unforced error by the democrats, when they targeted him and tried to keep him off the ballot. it reminded people about what it is this is all about, and so you've got even democrat sheriff of los angeles county was saying this is not a partisan issue. people want to have a functional government.
5:26 am
they want to have normal lives, and that's not what california has at this point so i think anything is possible and by the way, it'll only be for a year, because the election is next year. california really has nothing to lose and everything to gain to do it because if they don't like what larry elder or anyone else does, they can reelect gavin newsom, so this is an excellent opportunity to try to get your head above water, and i think california will take advantage of that. ainsley: he could tackle crime, homelessness, he says the gas prices are through the roof and it's so expensive to live there and so many people are leaving. thanks so much tammy great to see you. >> thank you, ainsley. ainsley: coming up next, a retired navy seal helping lead private fights from afghanistan is going to sound off on biden's botched exit plan and we are live on the ground in the yeah tar area as another crisis grows at basis housing afghan refugees

brian: we're back with a fox news alert. get this the kabul airport is under imminent terror threat, the u.s. warning americans telling them to leave the area right away. tens of thousands of americans and afghans have already been evacuated from kabul, and are being housed at u.s. military air base in qatar and the facilities and conditions are terrible but now they are reportedly facing a growing crisis. trey yingst joins us, how does it look? reporter: well, brian, good morning, qatar officials in private are warning the americans about the conditions currently housing thousands of afghan evacuees things like water and foot shortages, major concerns to the biden administration. now the white house says they are aware of these issues and they're being improved as we speak. this does come as the conditions in afghanistan, specifically at the airport in kabul, continue to deteriorate due to security threats outside the gates kabul 's airport has been basically closed right now.
5:32 am
the u.s. state department now telling americans to shelter in place and not come to the airfield. this as american and british officials were made aware of specific isis threat against the airport. no further details were provided though the timing could not have come at a worse moment. according to u.s. secretary of state anthony blinken there are still 1,500 americans inside afghanistan, a number of european allies at the u.s. say they will stop flights out of the country starting tomorrow night as the u.s. troops draw down begins. yesterday, scenes outside the airport showed thousands of people still waiting to be evacuated, waiting through sewage and climbing over walls to try and get inside the pentagon now says 13,000 people were evacuated in the past 24 hours, bringing the total since the taliban took over to more than 95,000. u.s. officials are still pledg ing to help others even after u.s. troops leave. take a listen. >> let me be crystal clear about this. there is no deadline on our work to help any remaining american
5:33 am
citizens who decide they want to leave to do so along with the many afghans who stood by us over these many years and want to leave and have been unable to do so. reporter: the secretary of state had a lot of words about the situation on the ground in afghanistan, but provided no plan about how the united states will help americans who are still stranded there, after the deadline expires. brian? brian: great point, how are we going to do it? have no people, no facilities, and the taliban to fly them out, it'll be great. thank you. our next guest is part of a team organizing private flights, not waiting for government to get out of kabul but while americans are lining up to help, he says in no uncertain term, the biden administration has been a massive impediment to their effort. retired navy seal and former virginia congressman scott taylor joins us now. scott, you took action like you've been trained to do. how is the administration gotten in your way? >> well good morning, brian it's great to be with you and
5:34 am
first of all let me say i'm proud to work alongside robert s crict and we have a teamworking non-stop for over a week now and we're just part of a small, we're a small effort in a very massive effort with americans of all walks of life, veterans, doing heroic humanitarian work in afghanistan trying to save lives. look, we were in touch with the white house over a week ago trying to get in there and help people out and save lives an get charter flights and get folks out to help them and it got nowhere quite frankly, they said we'll send you the task unit and we could get no one and this is an environment challenging, constantly changing with a lot of complexities, the need is extensive and great and we've been able to help quite frankly our role has morphed but we've been able to use our extensive networks overseas to help engage countries like qatar who helped us get safe passage from the city to the airport for like 300 people we've passed securely information on american citizens to the dod whose reached out to us to ask us for it and we've
5:35 am
helped agencies in ways we can't talk about online right now. brian: yeah, but the administration has not been much of a help they can't get out of their own why, are clearly disorganized. scott, how many americans do you think are in afghanistan? >> i think the number 1,500 number is very low,nd i've got to say, i am absolutely ashamed of the leadership of my country right now. not the men and women in uniform who are on the ground and others who are civilians helping working hard to save lives, but i'm absolutely baffled that no one has been fired, astounded that there's been zero resignations and protests. this was, biden didn't have a binary choice. it wasn't should we stay or should we go. he had a range of options and strategies and what has occurred is an epic failure that could lead to the largest american hostage situation in our nation 's history. brian: brings me to the most important question. if we leave on the 31st which means we got to start packing up right away, right now, do we
5:36 am
have any leverage to get our people out afterwards? let alone our afghan interpreter s. >> the reality is the taliban is on their best behavior right now, and that's not very good, and the only reason for that is because of the thousands of american troops that are there right now. when we leave, i think all hell is going to break loose and i think this nation needs leaders elected, needs leaders appointed who are willing to walk through the fires of hell to get american citizens out safe, and i've got to tell you i want to ask you, brian and ask your audience, we have an operation going right now that could save the lives of hundreds of women and children, right now, and i'm asking for your prayers for success. brian: anyway to contribute? >> i'm proud because there's so many people across all parts of america who have asked to help and contribute and the reality is, we're so bogged down with thousands of requests, and trying to make this operation which is very complex, make it work, and other operations and helping in many other ways it's
5:37 am
very difficult to take in all the againer us offers of help to be honest with you, but there are many people out there who are helping, donors, veterans, using their extensive networks to try to get people out to put their lives on the line for americans. brian: and i'm over, but just real quick, am i right, i don't want to put words in your mouth. is the message don't leave? he just froze. scott taylor, doing incredible work with his organization. clearly it's going to be a hostage situation if we leave the 31st. still ahead on this show, get this. new york magazine claims the media, us, everybody, manufactured the crisis in afghanistan. he says it's really going very well but sarah sanders read the article, and wants to talk about it. at this stage in my life to be able to be here as a part of newday usa, everything that we do is centered around how can we help
5:38 am
that veteran? how can we help that veteran family? we'll help anyone we possibly can. we'll get them in that home. we'll help them do a refi. we'll help them to get cash out of their home. whatever it is that's going to help that individual. and if it's not going to help them, we don't do it. ♪ ayy, ayy, ayy ♪ ♪ yeah, we fancy like applebee's on a date night ♪ ♪ got that bourbon street steak with the oreo shake ♪ ♪ get some whipped cream on the top too ♪ ♪ two straws, one check, girl, i got you ♪ ♪ bougie like natty in the styrofoam ♪ ♪ squeak-squeakin' in the truck bed all the way home ♪ ♪ some alabama-jamma, she my dixieland delight ♪ ♪ ayy, that's how we do, ♪ ♪ how we do, fancy like, oh ♪ age-related macular degeneration may lead to severe vision loss, so the national eye institute did 20 years of clinical studies on a formula found in preservision.

steve: afghanistan is a disaster zone right now. the one writer in new york magazine complains the media manufactured biden's political fiasco in afghanistan, writing in the article, america's withdrawal from afghanistan is thus far proceeding with relatively little chaos and tragedy he talks about how no americans so far has been killed ainsley: little chaos okay former white house press secretary and arkansas republican gubernatorial candidate sarah huckabee sanders is here to react. good morning, sarah. >> good morning. thanks for having me on. ainsley: i wrote down some of the stories we've been covering, the two-year-old baby was trampled on and killed trying to get to the airport, a woman was killed for not covering her head , people have been punched, people have been whipped, they aren't able to leave, and this writer says no chaos? or little chaos? brian: people falling thousands of feet to their death off the fuselage of a cargo jet? ainsley: that's right what do you say? >> if i hadn't experienced firsthand the absolute absurdity
5:43 am
of the mainstream media so much, i would find this hard to believe. unfortunately, it's not, but not only is this not a manufactured crisis, and let's be very clear. the mainstream media is very good at manufacturing crisis. they did it nearly every single day during the trump adminitration. that is not what is taking place in afghanistan. it is an absolute disaster, solely at the hands of the biden administration. they have put american lives at risk, they have put our national security at risk and they have shown just the complete and utter weakness and in competence of this president and the fact that someone is trying to call this a manufactured crisis, when we can see with our own eyes, every single day, the horrific stories coming out of there, is not only appalling but it's irr reprehensible to say something like that when this is taking place at the hands of this american president. steve: well sarah, it's great that reporters are finally doing their jobs and this particular
5:44 am
guy, from the new yorker who apparently doesn't have a problem with what is going on, he calls out the new york times, nbc, cnn, and cbs, for making the administration essentially look bad when they shouldn't be, because at one point, he refers to, he concludes a piece by criticizing americans, bleeding heart correspondents. >> i'm just frankly shocked that the new york times and cnn and others are actually holding biden's feet to the fire. now, i think they could go a lot further in talking about what is fully going on on the ground in afghanistan, the national security threat that we are now under due to the absolute failure of this administration, and i hope they'll continue to tell this story, because it is, i think, one of the most tragic situations that we've had at the hands of the american government , in a really long time. brian: right this is worse than vietnam, no question, and sarah
5:45 am
how is your run for governor going? >> it's going excellent. things are going extremely well. we continue to keep fighting. frankly one of the reasons i'm running is because of the failed leadership in washington does not represent the greatness of this country and we need strong conservative leaders that are willing to step up, continue calling out this administration, and make sure that they can't just run rampant without accountability and people pushing them to do better and to serve this country the way that it should be. ainsley: sarah thank you so much for joining us. >> you bet, thank you for having me on. ainsley: you're welcome. let's hand it over to jillian with more news. jillian: that's right good morning. news out of florida as a family vacation takes a deadly turn after this young father is shot and killed in miami beach, protecting his wife and baby. this suspected gunman admitted he was high on mushrooms and that he targeted the family at random, while they were eating at a cafe. he is charged with second degree murder and was denied bond.
