♪♪ pete: good sunday morning. december 5th of year of our lord 2021. that is "fox nation," news, "all-american christmas" tree. it is early. rachel: it is early. it is dark. every moment of the day there
3:02 am
are people taking pictures in front of the tree. we'll have a free lighting ceremony. pete: people are confused thinking it is the rockefeller center. rachel: it is better. it is better. will: there will be official tree-lighting ceremony tonight hosted by steve, answererly and brian. we'll have a join them later in the show. just 60 seconds ago. love the national anthem. it is tradition here on "fox & friends" on the weekend unless there is breaking news. unless there is breaking news, we will play the national anthem and play your viewer photos. your photos are so awesome, we sat here and debated are those stock images. here is what we ask of you. keep them coming in. you will have your photos, your children, your patriotic it ma'amings on "fox & friends." this is our tradition. when i say our, i don't mean
3:03 am
pete, rachel, will. i don't mean "fox & friends." i mean you and i us together. we hope you stay a part of it. pete: our producers were talking to us, saying no, no, we check everyone, to make sure they are not a stock photo and original one. rachel: real deal. pete: i will remind viewers, not watching at 6:00 a.m., dvr the show, it is the best part of the show. rachel: it is our favorite moment of the show. pete: you look at the images, warms your heart. will: you realize how of our viewers love our dogs. dogs figure problem prominently. football games. so glad you're here this morning. it is early. we're outside. device now. rachel: there is someone, who is out in the cold today as well, by the way. that would be cnn's, formerly of
3:04 am
cnn chris cuomo because cnn has officially fired chris cuomo of a documents from the new york ag revealed that he used his media role, he used his job to dig up dirt on some of his brother's accusers. pete: as others have said, tucker, sean, i get defending your brother. no one is saying allegiance to your family is a crime. what the problem was he told his bosses the opposite. they ultimately hired a law firm. the law firm looked into it. the text messages exchanged between chris cuomo on the right and aide of then governor on the left who is accused by multiple and he was involved deeply in writing statements, digging up information on the accuse erstwhile saying to his bosses and his audience that he was not. will: look at this headline from "the babylon bee" reads, unemployment rate among cuomo
3:05 am
brothers rises to 100%. "the babylon bee" is a satirical website. the ceo is seth dillon. he has been a friend on "fox & friends" many times. his job is getting difficult. the empty space between satire and real news is shrinking. we have only 24 hours before satisfy becomes actually reality. to your point, pete, why chris cuomo is jobless this morning. read cnn's statement why they terminated chris cuomo. this is more to the story. this is what -- rachel: this is what chris cuomo's statement. will: while i read this, this is a very headline and buried nugget in the story. let's get cnn's statement as well. this is what chris cuomo had to say. this is not how i wanted my time at cnn to end. i told you why i helped my
3:06 am
brother. as disappointing it is i could not be proud of the team at cuomo prime time and work at this. yy's number one show and the time slot. cnn's numb number one show. not the number one show on news but on cnn i will miss all that special group of people that really did important work. here is cnn's statement if i might. chris cuomo was suspended earlier this week pending further valuation of new information that came to light about his involvement in his brother's defense. we retained respected law firm to conduct the review and terminated him effective immediately. while in the process of that review additional information has come to light. upon determination we will investigate as appropriate. that sentence, carries all the weight. while in the investigation, new information has come to light. that is the story. what is the new information. pete: new information beyond what was released by the attorney general.
3:07 am
will: i don't think we know what the new information may pertain to. it doesn't necessarily pertain to governor andrew cuomo. rachel: no and it could be which is not new information, there was a former producer of chris cuomo's who came out and said she was at a party with him years ago with her husband and chris cuomo greeted her by grabbing her from behind and didn't realize her husband was actually on the other side and witnessed the whole thing. it was really ugly are. sent an apology email. she has the evidence that actually did happen. there could be other incidents like that. i'll tell you what really bothers methis story, because i also believe, it is his brother. i get that angle for sure, but this is the media trying to pretend now they have nothing to do with chris cuomo. that summer of the pandemic when we all remember the jolly little exchanges that were almost like a neatly thing on the chris cuomo show with the big q-tip,
3:08 am
all that kind of joking around happening, all that was happening in the context of trying to take president trump down. they all wanted chris cuomo in the media and on the left to be the foil to donald trump that was why that was allowed to happen. everybody could see this was a conflict of interest regardless of stuff came to light about whether he was trying to work with the aides and actively try to suppress stories about women with his brother. what you're seeing right there should have shut down, should have never happened. there was evidence even back then that governor cuomo was, that his policies were killing, literally killing people as janice dean as you know brought to light. janice dean tweeted about this firing, said, cnn needs to issue an apology to all the women they
3:09 am
helped smear and families who they insulted by promoting those two brothers during the height of the pandemic when thousands were dying. shame on all of you. she has been a voice of reason and brought a lot of things to light, janice dean. pete: for sure. fredo is no more at cnn in the highest rated extremely low rated prime time show. that you know, i mean, chris cuomo is a testament to the fact you don't really need brains to be on tv. you just need connections. ultimately used the connections for all the wrong reasons for his brother and he is out. kayleigh mcenany is on justice talking about cnn handling this and all with chris cuomo. here is what she said. >> cnn, make no mistake they are no noble actor in this. they covered chris cuomo time and time defend.
3:10 am
they bring on governor cuomo with the massive q-tip, segments where they all praised him. conflict of interest. gave him a slight slap on the wrist when he was advising his brother. ad mon meshed i am he in a statement. they knew all about this all long and they knew for months this firing had to happen. a year ago i was in the white house with president trump, we were made to watch these cuomo press conferences, he was the gold standard, king of handling covid. what a fall from grace for andrew cuomo and chris cuomo. pete: fall from grace, unmasking of a shame that was the collaboration between those two. will: i disagree with you a little bit. i don't think that chris cuomo is any dummy. i actually think that he is quite smart. i think his character flaw, pete, is something deeper. i think he is entitled and
3:11 am
hypocritical. in that he shares those characteristics with his entire network. i get at what kayleigh is talking about here. divorcing yourself from chris cuomo, that you preached masks and don't wear them. you preach social distancing, chris cuomo emerging with a cameraman in his face. you preach guarding against disinformation and lying on a regular basis. rachel: that is not why he is gone. will: my point you can divorce yourself from chris cuomo, don't make mistake,cnn, you are the network of hypocrisy. rachel: i agree completely but we'll say this and move on. jason whitlock on had comments on this entire thing. these two are part and parcel of the whole left-wing media complex. what took them down they were the wrong gender and the wrong race. and that had they been different, in that regard, that they might have survived.
3:12 am
that they are, sort of vestige of the old white boy network, therefore they're expendable. it is a very interesting take on it. maybe we'll play later on in the show because it is fascinating. a lot of angles to this. pete: i take your point well and it was in some ways we'll see what the investigation reveals. almost a technicalities of his bosses and others what he to them that took him down. not any of the rest of what goes on at cnn. do they actually ever learn that lesson at all? your head shaking says the answer. rachel: what would have taken him down, if i would have been that producer and chris cuomo grabbed me from behind, my husband would have taken chris cuomo down. that husband didn't. the wife wrote a email. that is crazy. pete: strongly worded all caps. to a family behind bars. jennifer, james and ethan crumbley all locked up in the
3:13 am
same michigan jail. judge setting bond for each parent at $500,000. we heard it live at the end of our program yesterday. rachel: ashley strohmier is live as the couple makes their first court appearance. reporter: good morning. authorities say the mother, father, son trio are held in separate areas, in isolation as well under suicide watch. they are not allowed to communicate. this as jennifer and james crumbley pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter charges. their defense attorney making claim in court. >> that gun was actually locked. so when the prosecution is stating that this child had free access to a gun. that is just absolutely not true. reporter: also, coming to light, oxford high school superintendent is spooking out about a student conselor meeting it had with ethan crumbley the morning of the shooting. the superintendent that ethan
3:14 am
claimed disturbing sketches he drew with images of a gun, that person who was shot, and more, to that drawing were for a videogame he was designing. the superintendent saying quote, at no time did counselors believe the student might harm others based on responses and demeanor which appeared calm. tragically, hours later gunfire erupted. as the state of michigan mourns, university of michigan honored victims of the shooting, wearing a special patch at the big 10 championship game. guys they won pretty good. rachel: thank you, ashley. that was nating. will: we had that live. fascinating to watch that. three of as the media, i individually want to do a good job knowing what i don't know, not the moral condemnation but legal condemnation of those parents w that story we don't
3:15 am
want to get ahead of ourselves. pete: we were watching real time. only heard the prosecutor. none of this had to do what happened. we know the tragedy, the horror that was what happened in the school but you see the green box around the two ladies. those are the defense attorneys, they introduced a different side of the story. anyone can get ahead of themselves with one side of the story. we'll continue to get a sense what really happened with the parents. we know what happened in the school. what happened with the parents and their legal culpability. we'll try our best to be every way responsible. rachel: absolutely. will: we turn to the headlines. 40,000 people turning out to protest covid lock down in austria. they are planning to make in february the covid vaccine mandatory for all adults. more than 500 new york city corrections officers are on unpaid leave not getting vaccinated. officers had until
3:16 am
december 1st to get the jab. this is staffing shortage in the problem. officers are required to work longer shifts to cover open positions. new "washington post" op-ed claim the media is harder on president biden than it was on former president donald trump. rachel: [laughter] will: they are serious, babylon bee story. rachel: are you sure this is not "the babylon bee"? >> i assure you. dana milbank cites a report from fiscal note, trump received equal if not better coverage in 2020 than biden today. i'm supposed to receive this with seriousness in. how liberal outlets are giving biden bad press. my colleagues are serving as accessories to the murder of democracy. pete: he is saying it is a bad thing? will: they think their job is not to be unbiased objective, neutral, their job is to be pro-democracy and their job is to be pro-biden.
3:17 am
rachel: i thought once they got out of office -- i thought that would end once trump was out of office. you can see it is beyond just getting trump out of office. it is actually they're on the other side. will: at least they're now admitting it. one headline, college football, number two michigan stomps iowa to win the big 10 title 42-3. the victory marks the wolverines first conference title 2004. number three 3 alabama rolls number one george today. bryce young was amazing, carved up the bulldogs with four touchdowns. pete: is that georgia's first loss? >> it is. pete: i'm criticized. will: did you see this. big 12 final play. they held off oklahoma state by that match. if oklahoma wins that game, good
3:18 am
shot at college football play off. they literally come two inches short. baylor, big 12 title champions on 2021. pete: i don't follow college football as well as i should. is the championship games feeding the beast. will: not new. pete: don't lead directly to the football play off? will: they don't want us to do a half hour debate. pete: we have one of the best sports commentators on the planet as our co-host. we ought to use him. rachel: so here is my question, just the look on his face. will: that will be fine. rachel: that guy that was almost getting the touchdown, was it a touchdown. will? no, he was short by two inches, therefore oklahoma state lost. i thought he would make the corner. looked like he was speeding
3:19 am
around the corner but it didn't happen. back to the conference championships, there is debate makes it harder to make the playoff. notre dame is not in a conference, with no conference title game. notre dame doesn't have the extra feather in their cap. it is all for naught at the end. clear four teams decipher the playoff. you will hear later today i suspect, alabama, georgia, cincinnati, michigan are the four. pete: cincinnati out of nowhere cool. 19 minutes after the hour. we ran a little long. that's okay. up next, crime chaos, los angeles detective says bad guys are released before they finish the paperwork. judge jeanine gives her take why you are no longer safe in america. rachel: making mask mandates permanent. that idea is under review of course in oregon. that story just ahead. ♪.

3:37 am
look almost every democratic mayor who don't obey the mandates in oregon to make a it permanent. look at timeline of indoor mask mandate. june 2020, the first mask mandate was issued for indoor public international space station. june 21 it was lifted. august it was reissued. sunset in february. now extending it out. here is what is funny, alex, you're in oregon, you point out the hypocrisy. this is supposedly a democratic process. when do people look at this and go, if they don't obey it how do they make it permanent? >> well, i wish people would wake up and do that with a lot of things, not just mask mandates. it's a huge overreach in my opinion and unfortunately that is what happens in a lot of states like oregon, california, new york, where you have one party rule top to bottom almost every office. hopefully we change that this

3:43 am
the defense. yesterday we saw the arraignment, at least most of it on our show at the end of our "fox & friends" and the lawyers for these parents seem to say, listen, this is not the case. what the prosecutor laid out is not what happened. so what say you? >> well you expect that from a defense attorney and at the outset of a case the defense attorneys probably know the least of anybody. look, instead of getting their son, who was deeply troubled, the professional help he needed, what do the parent do? they went out and bought him a gun. they deliberately ignored all the warning signs that he was psychologically unstable and poised to commit violence, drawing pictures of killing people, laughing about it. searching the internet in the classroom for ammunition. they insisted he remain in school, never disclosing they had gone out and just days
3:44 am
before bought him a gun and taken him to the firing range to practice using it. so, i mean, this constitutes a very definition of carelessness, gross negligence, beinglessness, which unmichigan law is involuntary manslaughter. rachel: gregg, could the school be under negligence? they saw pictures. as a mom i wouldn't want that child in school with the other children. violates their rights to have somebody that unstable in the classroom. can that be extended to school as well? >> the school will certainly be sued civilly for wrongful death and other damages for failure to protect. they too didn't take aggressive action to intervene and to suspend him immediately. serve his backpack. search his person.
3:45 am
remove him from school grounds. they have an active duty to ensure safety of other students. rachel: definitely. later in the show we'll be speaking with a psychologist what is plaguing our young men in particular in america. so that is something i hope our viewers will stick around for. gregg, i want to move on to chris cuomo. as you know cnn fired their star anchor immediately, effective immediately. that was following an internal review they did into his sexual harrassment allegations against his brother. what do you make of this and do you think that it, the saga will end here with this firing or do you think other heads are going to roll in this story? >> oh i think there will be dramatic changes at cnn. cuomo lied to his bosses, lied to his colleagues and he lied to his viewers. he went on air and said i never used my journalistic credentials
3:46 am
to contact media on behalf of my brother. his own testimony and text messages though that was a lie but i think you will see new changes now that discovery has taken over cnn. john malone, the largest shareholder has said he wants changes and return to journalism at cnn. so, i don't see how jeff zucker or brian stelter or jeffrey toobin survive this. i think there will be some significant changes at cnn. rachel: that will be interesting to watch. certainly jeffrey toobin's performances are worthy of firing. gregg, thank you so much for joining us this morning. >> sure. my pleasure. rachel: pete? pete: jeffrey toobin's performances, well-done, rachel, thank you. we do have a few additional headlines this morning. this week new york city will council will vote, get this one,

4:03 am
united states oregon eyes making its indoor mask mandate permanent. all across europe we've seen burgeoning protests, burgeoning pushback to mask mandates, lockdowns, vaccine mandates. the return to the coronavirus pandemic heights. i think we have not fully given attention to the pushback across the world. regardless of vaccination status, people have had it. they have had it with the growing totalitarianism. had it with the growing restrictions be it if italy, austria, australia, perhaps here in the united states. the ufc president, united fighting championships, president dana white, who has been a real, a real source of independence and strength when it comes sports world and among corporate ceos, he talked about this on unfiltered with dan bongino. listen. >> when the whole covid thing started, they said stay home
4:04 am
until we tell you to leave your house. let your business die, kids don't go to school. none of that stuff ever made sense to me. as americans, we go out, we find solutions to problems and we figure these type of things out. that is what i did. i'm never locking down. i'm never forcing people to be vaccinated. any of that. it is not a political thing. this is the way it should be. this is a free country. rachel: it's a free country. so we thought it was but during the pandemic we saw so many things that were so un-american. when i talk to my kids, pete and will, i'm always saying to them, just so you know, all the things that happened in the last two years are not normal. we don't shut down. in america we don't shut down. we did and we shouldn't and we never did before, shut down businesses, shut down schools, more importantly shut down churches. dana white talked about how he never felt that was right. he didn't do those things in hi.
4:05 am
i spoke to some priests who followed orders in the beginning, actually publicly apologized to the parishioners, i want you to know, if our government does this again, i will never shut my church doors down to you again. i do not take orders from the government. i serve the people. i serve god and i am never doing that in america again. that is the mentality we have to have. we go to the airport, we're still masking up, we're still following these mandates,. pete: pete may we not forget that you're exactly right. the airport is the one, is the last place i am forced to put a mask on my face. really, there is nowhere else that i will go where i will do that. just not going. rachel: i'm with you. i did the same thing. pete: but there are still a lot of kids, inconcluding a couple of mine which i am ashamed to admit who are still forced by the government to wear a mask in
4:06 am
their schools. will: yeah. pete: if we could go to a state immediately were that not the case we would. we can't. so we're stuck. i feel feeble as a father, even saying that, admitting that, but i know a lot of people are out there facing the same thing who don't live in free states. who are stuck where they are. will: even in free states, pete. i'm sitting on the other side of rachel with you, same side of that issue. i have one child masked in school today in texas. i want to be clear, crystal clear about something. we are on the side of science about this i want to be crystal clear. these types of mandates, never, never had the backing still do not have the backing of science. the absurdity, we know by now, for example, coronavirus down transmit on surfaces. when you board a plane they hand you the purell wipe. we know they have the best hepa
4:07 am
filters out there but we're required to wear a mask. i don't care what someone hears out of our mouth, this sounds radical, be ungovernable. we're supposed to be free people. governing should be hard. that the entire point. free people should limit amount of areas where they are governable. if you have to make us governable you have the duty to be backed by science. i trust you, promise you they are not. no matter how scientists or experts suggest they are. rachel: those images out of europe are amazing. i don't think that the images really, 40,000 people in one city. and i think it is about time that in america and in those places where we see these you know, tighter restrictions, those americans need to stand up to say enough is enough. pete: reading my mind. what would it require, hough far it would go in our country --
4:08 am
that is not political people. those are people with jobs, families kids. they say enough is enough. i think some of the restrictions have been even more draconian and even more widespread in their application in europe than here in the united states. thankfully we are, we do have federalism. we have some level of states prerogative. may we have the ability to muster that when necessary. kind of scary we haven't even gotten to that point in this country. >> absolutely. with omicron, latest variant, we learn about the symptoms, i was reading the newsletter we get before the show this morning, i could be wrong, from what it said, there are no reported deaths from omicron. will: no. reporter: no reported deaths from omicron. will: hospitalization rate is very low. pete: new variant, mutation, which sounds scary, less deadly than anything we've seen before. that should be heartening news.
4:09 am
covid may be going away an continue to be weaker. rachel: this is not heartening in those in africa because of economic punishment i think a racist policy by this administration to shut down africa, some countries don't even have a case. others as you say have a few cases but the symptoms are mild and there is no scientific reason why we should be shutting down travel. all we're doing is hurting some of the countries that can least afford to be hurt economically. will: here in the united states, in addition to the travel ban, for example, in the state of oregon looking to make the mask mandates permanent. i spoke to alex skarlatos, a oregon congressional candidate was earlier on "fox & friends." here is what he had to say. >> the most local government as possible controlled mask mandates. to have someone in a state office, federal office, anything like that, is crazy. those covid infection rates are
4:10 am
different across the country and across inside of each state. i don't know why state or federal government is mandating everything. it's a huge overreach in my opinion. unfortunately that is what happens in a lot of states like oregon, california, new york, where you have one-party rule. rachel: this to me is so fascinating. i remember early on in the pandemic, i went on stuart varney show i said something that people criticized me for. i hope we come out of pandemic looking more like americans than communist chinese. sadly in some parts of america, certainly at the airport, we look like we're in communist china. pete: yeah. i'm surprised you got pushback. rachel: i got pushback, not from fox viewers from -- pete: not really. thank you for this hand warmer, will. will: you're welcome. pete: i'm shivering over here. i pretend i'm not from minnesota but it is cold.
4:11 am
in california, reagan national defense forum, talking about national policy, national security. a lot of our programs are can broadcasting. our own bret baier asked defense secretary lloyd austin about afghanistan, that whole retreat, shameless retreat in afghanistan this is a moment where our leaders about have to face the press. bret asked him the right question. do you have any regrets? think about it all this time later all what unfolded, do you have regrets. watch how the defense secretary, well eventually, attempted to answer the question. >> do you have any regrets about the afghan withdrawal? >> bret, i regret the fact that we lost 13 of our finest at abbey gate. i regret that we lost 10
4:12 am
civilians in an errant strike. having said that, bret, i want to make sure that we don't, we don't lose sight of the fact that our american forces in 17 days evacuated 124,000 people from afghanistan. 124,000. and i think that we need to continue to remind the united states of america and we continue to remind the world about the great work that they have done and that they continue to do on a daily basis. pete: so a long, awkward silence. it may be because he knows how you should answer that question. rachel: how should he answer that question? pete: what do we regret?
4:13 am
we regret dishonoring a nation's honor, those who gave so much and all the credibility we have on the world stage before our eyes. leaving $85 billion worth of equipment behind? you could go down the list of the sins we committed with the way we left afghanistan, the people we left behind, people still there, americans are not able to come home, the state department will not admit are there. the vets groups doing the work of what the state department, dod should be doing, and still doing it and he knows it. instead he pivots to the number. number from the podium. how many people. maybe we'll get eventually to the question, who are those people? were they actually properly vetted? rachel: right. pete: most of them were not u.s. citizens. most of them were not green cardholders. the vast majority were not siv holders. they never weren't through the process to be vetted. rushed through a the gates, a terrible process, they could
4:14 am
reach a number he still cites today, ultimately it was an abject failure and stain on our legacy. he knows it. that is the six second pause right there. rachel: do you know who else knows it? the families of those men and women that died so unnecessarily. pete: sure. rachel: the moms and that newborn baby crying behind me and will when we were at the patriot awards, that is who knows what that guy did and i don't think america feels very safe or secure under the leadership of general austin and i think his comments there, that he refute, refuses to still take responsibility for it and admit what a failure that was, we think maybe they learned something from the next time, no one feels any better about this. will: as long as we're talking about numbers, the newest numbers, the news to accompany this piece of sound is following by 22 nations. apparently the number is north of 100 now, potential, former afghan security force members,
4:15 am
allies of ours disappeared or executed in four afghan provinces since august 15th. rachel: i'm sure that number is higher. pete: i'm sure that number is much higher, talk to people that know, all the people their lives are on the line, all being hunted. they have been abandoned. that moment in the patriot awards, i don't know how much was caught on camera, standing from the stage, it was raw, and it was real. you recognize many of the families of the 13 that were killed were there and the tears and the embraces, you didn't know what to say. that is the face and the consequence of these policies and you know what? lloyd austin sits there knowing the intentions of the russians on the ukraine border. knowing the intentions of the chinese as it pertains to taiwan. he knows real enemies around the globe, looking to take advantage of america's weakness and fecklessness. is he willing, capable to stand up to that? right now our enemies are making
4:16 am
a bet he is not. i would hate to admit or report they might be right. i hope they're wrong. but they're calculating weakness right now. will: no doubt they're making that bet. rachel: his stand-down, focus on world policies and our military are so misguided. it shows it. he doesn't have his priorities straight. i don't feel safe under his leadership. pete: we'll have staff sergeant david belavia, friend of mine, amazing patriot. we did an event last night in monmouth county and fisher house. we'll get his take on the world. turning to a decisional headlines a florida tech student allegedly chased students with a knife before he was shot and killed by police. authorities say they received reports of a man with a knife assaults students. he reportedly lunged at police and he was shot and killed.

four of nine positions, big bonus, $20,000. help us understand, context cont alize that bonus. how much that depends? >> that is based on sliding experience we have. we will lateral officers in from other departments. that hourly rate to be up to 29 an hour to start. that bonus is for experienced officers with five or more years experience. will: so this bonus by the way indicates to me you're not only down in the number of officers currently serving within the department but maybe the application pool is not quite where you want it as well. what is going on within the department, but the law enforcement community and your ability to hire? >> we actually, technically, you're correct, our four say can't positions, three of those are filled with untrained
4:38 am
officers. the way it works in maine, we have to send officers to the maine criminal justice academy. these officers can be a year before fully trained. at this point we couldn't absorb another untrained officer. we tried to office the bonus to get attention which apparently it did. i'm confident we will be able to fill that extra pox we have. will: still an extraordinary measure, chief. as you said it has gotten attention. it is an extraordinary step. we have to ask why, why is this necessary? why do you have to do this to find good officers? i'm sorry let me rephrase that, to find experienced officers? >> they're a valuable commodity in maine now. if we get the word out, trying to focus what we do here, we have an exceptional small city to work for. the way we work, our management supports us. our city council supports us. the citizens support us. it is a great place to work.
4:39 am
i have from doubt once the are word gets out we'll fill the position quickly. i recognize, statewide and nationwide, there are far less applicants than used to be. will: real quickly, 30 seconds, chief, what is it? demoralized officers, vaccine mandates, why is it difficult right now? >> a whole host of things. certainly the negative media attention plays into it. the workforce as a whole is changing. we're seeing younger folks that do want to get in the business, they don't like the schedule. they don't like undue attention, negative from the media plays a part. in this area mere we're very much supported by our population. will: now you're supported potentially financially as well, with a big signing bonus. chief jason moffitt, thanks for jumping on "fox & friends" this morning. >> thank you. will: one business own making

rachel: welcome to "fox & friends" a business owner is at war with paypal after being censored on facebook. he creates patriotic wooden flags. after the company posted a photo
4:44 am
after sign featuring former president trump, facebook restricted access for them from advertising their products. to make matters worse, they say paypal froze their revenue and have withheld thousands of dollars from them. they claim paypal is offering to give them their money if they promise not to take legal action. your american flag store owner joins us now. tell us how you realized they were basically censoring you? by the way, welcome to the show. >> thank you. thank you for having me. well we found out that the first way we found out when facebook demonetized us. after we kind of resolved that problem, we got a big surge in sales. with that surge in sales we, you know, starting planning out our production schedule for the next couple of months. we figured that out. we called our lumber supplier. had them place an order to run our credit card. as soon as they ran our card,
4:45 am
they said it wasn't, it was declined. so we called paypal to find out what was going on. that is pretty much when we found out that paypal would be holding over $83,000 of our money. and required us to full full all the orders without the capital to do it and would review their decision after six months. rachel: when you called paypal, they said the reason is that you did this trump flag? they told you that? >> no. they didn't, they didn't mention the trump flag. what they, they didn't really give me any reasons t was vague. there was, they didn't give me something that i could solve to remedy the situation. they didn't offer me anything. they more or less said that because our business model was a made to order art company, that it was a shady business model and, that they were going to hold, they were going to hold the capital until we satisfied
4:46 am
all the orders. again we had to satisfy the orders but we didn't have the capital to satisfy them and ship them out and make happy customers. rachel: they disrupted your flow of business, no question about it. >> absolutely. rachel: you got help from the center for american liberty, the dylan law group, parabellum law firm, that correct? >> yeah. >> now you're fighting back. you got your money. paypal will give you the rest of the money but they want you not to sue. are you going to pursue legal action against paypal? >> i hope to. there is a part of me hopes they come to their senses to do what is right and get out of our business. we never wanted them as a partner. they are not our partner. they shouldn't be making decisions for us. when you're holding somebody's money you control the decisions they make with their business. i would like to see paypal just get out ever our life. we'll cross the next bridge of suing them after we talk to our
4:47 am
attorneys and kind of figure out what the next stage would be. i can tell you this, would be a lot better months ago they would have given us our money. there wouldn't be as much damages not having money has caused. we would be a lot more comfortable saying let's go our own ways. we're 10 months into this. the damages are kind of piling up and every time we go to talk to paypal, again through our lawyers, they just, what they're doing, while all this is happening, our credit is kind of slipping because we're trying to hold everything on a very tight budget. rachel: right. >> while they're trying to mitigate damages to their credit, requiring non-disclosure. they are forget about the non-disclosure. they realize we won't play that. as long as you don't sue us we will give you money. i'm not comfortable with that. i'm not -- the more they are
4:48 am
trying to keep us from doing what we love to do, there is fire burning. i never wanted to sue them. and i'm kind of, with every day that passes they don't resolve this with us, it light as fire to want to sue them. i'm not that kind of person. i don't like suing people. i want to make american flags. that is all i want to do. rachel: i know you do. this is the new form of political oppression. as sad as i am for what you're going through, i hope americans facing this willing to sue them. that is the only way these companies will stop doing this this is a real injustice. thank you for standing up to them. it is not easy. you just want to make flags but you're a good american. thanks a lot, james, thank you for joining us. >> thank you. rachel: we reached out to paypal from a statement. we have not heard back. let's turn now to chief meteorologist rick reichmuth for our fox weather forecast. risk? >> outside without a jacket. it is not that bad almost

4:50 am
when taken with an aromatase inhibitor or fulvestrant in postmenopausal women with hr+, her2- metastatic breast cancer. kisqali is a pill that's significantly more effective at delaying disease progression versus an aromatase inhibitor or fulvestrant alone. kisqali can cause lung problems, or an abnormal heartbeat, which can lead to death. it can cause serious skin reactions, liver problems, and low white blood cell counts that may result in severe infections. tell your doctor right away if you have new or worsening symptoms, including breathing problems, cough, chest pain, a change in your heartbeat, dizziness, yellowing of the skin or eyes, dark urine, tiredness, loss of appetite, abdomen pain, bleeding, bruising, fever, chills or other symptoms of an infection, a severe or worsening rash, are or plan to become pregnant, or breastfeeding. avoid grapefruit during treatment. ask your doctor about living longer with kisqali. this may look like a regular movie night. ask your doctor but if you're a kid with diabetes, it's more. it's the simple act of enjoying time with friends,

5:58 am
what she needs right now is food. these elderly jews are weak and they're sick. they're living on $2 a day this now, is how god's children are living. take this time to send a survival food box to these forgotten jews. the international fellowship of christians and jews urgently need your gift of $25 now to help provide one survival food box with all of the essentials they critically need for their diet for one month. your special holiday gift will provide everything they need to celebrate the miracle of hanukkah. this is the first time in over 70 years that she has anything to do with faith. the communists came and wiped it out. and now we're coming to her and saying, "it's okay to have faith." it's okay to light the hanukkah candles.

6:02 am
i'm taking a point of personal privilege. if you don't wake up at 6:00 a.m. and watch our show, you need to dvr it and watch it every saturday and sunday because we play our nation's anthem right at 6:00 an and the producers have done an amazing thing, with a new tradition where they play viewer photos. it's awesome. they're new and different every morning, every saturday and sunday. they look like professional quality. rachel: we had to go, are you sure that's not stock? no, those are your amazing pay t trotic photos -- patriotic photos. most of them income from wisconsin. i have remind myself, america is beautiful in every state. we get pictures of flags in the deserts, mountains, across the prairies. >> children and dogs from sea to shining sea. i'm not even saying that because we want more ratings. rachel: of course we do. >> you'll rewind it and watch it and say best part of the morning. rachel: it's our favorite part of the morning. keep sending them in.
6:03 am
i want to move to bring in our next guest. she is elise stefanik, she is the congresswoman from new york, she is also -- i should say, she's a wonderful person who is celebrating her first christmas with a baby. congratulations. i have to tell you that again and again. >> they are so special with a child, it is a miracle and we -- thanksgiving was wonderful. we're so excited for christmas. rachel: congratulations on that. we brought you here because we love getting your take on all topics, wees personally want to -- we especially want to get your take on cnn firing their former lead star anchor, chris cuomo which is effective immediately following a law firm's internal review at cnn and they said we've got to let him go. what's your thoughts on that they. >> this is better late than never. i called for cnn to terminate chris cuomo back in august. for some time we've known that chris cuomo is complicit in the
6:04 am
coverup and smearing and retaliation against the victims of sexual harassment and sexual assault of his brother, the former governor, andrew cuomo, the worst governor in america. this should have happened a long time ago. i'm glad that cnn has taken this action. but there is still accountability that needs to be heard, rachel. there is a sitting head of the state university of new york who has been revealed as part of the effort to retaliate against these women. and was part of the criminal coverup and kathy hochul needs to make sure we completely clean house from the criminal cesspool and the corrupt cronies that supported governor cuomo. >> the sexual harassmental he lee gas stations around the governor shall -- allegations around the governor doesn't seem to stop the governor's office. i want to read a quote from cnn regarding chris cuomo's firing. chris cuomo was suspended pending further evaluation of new information that came to light about his involvement in his brother's defense. we retained a respected law firm
6:05 am
to conduct a he review and terminated him effective immediately. they went on to say additional information, new information played a role in their immediate action. chris cuomo has had a sexual harassment allegation made against him in the past. this congresswoman, seems to be rampant. >> absolutely. and i think it's important that the public know what that additional information is. they need to immediately turn over that additional information to the state assembly and state senate as well as to the independent investigation. of course, that first tranche of documents has been res leased to the public -- released to the public. there is now a federal investigation into governor cuomo's crimes and it's important that they have access to all of that information so cnn needs to turn that over as quickly as possible. >> well, congresswoman, here's what chris cuomo had to say about being fired. he said this is not how i wanted my time at cnn to end but i already told you why and how i helped my brother. let me say i'm disappointed at
6:06 am
this, could not be more proud of the team at cuomo prime time and the work we did as cnn's number one at cnn show in the most competitive time slot. i owe them all and will miss that group of special people who did really important work. there's a lot to unpack and you have, whether him miss representing to his bosses -- misrepresenting to his bosses, what happened in the nursing home and his willingness to prop up his governor brother. is there a reason that's solidified in the minds of america that cnn is fake news. they delivered on it and continued to, as joe concha pointed out, they lost eight of 10 viewers in prime time in the past year. people don't buy what they're selling. can they make a change? >> there's a reason cnn's ratings have plummeted. the american people understand they're pushing fake news, they are pushing propaganda. when it comes to the cuomo brothers, cnn is guilty of
6:07 am
propping up andrew cuomo, covering up for the nursing home scandal, the conflict of interest of having a brother interview governor cuomo. that's not why people watch the news. they want fair and balanced, they want objective coverage, which is why cnn continues to spiral. to be honest with you, one of the reasons why cnn's numbers continue to go down is because they were so obsessed with opposition to president trump for so many years which was not objective. we know they were perpetrators of the russia hoax and so much false information and the american people deserve the truth, they deserve objectivity and that's not they're getting at cnn. rachel: you're so right about that. the media so complicit, especially cnn, in propping up the cuomos in order to present him as a foil or alternative to donald trump who they villainized repeatedly. i want to move to another topic with you, congresswoman. we see another crisis in the democrat party, direct result of
6:08 am
their very dangerous and irresponsible policies is the illegality of people coming across the border in record numbers. and now we're hearing that in new york city they want to pass legislation that would allow new york's noncitizens to vote. i want to hear from you what republicans are going to fight this and what i think could possibly be one of the most dangerous ways of undermining our democracy and the meaning of citizenship. >> well, we are going to use every a avenue to challenge this. this is unconstitutional, this is illegal. need to make sure it's american senses voting -- citizens voting in our elections. the new york state republican party announced we are going to challenge in every way possible republicans who have been elect inned new york city are going to stand up. this is not just republicans. every american should be opposed
6:09 am
to this. this is about undermining the integrity of our elections. when you think the democrats have gone too far, they always go a step further, further to the left. we need to stand strong as americans against this undermining of our constitutional election. >> now to a story that i don't think is getting enough attention even from us. you brought this up earlier, pete, you talked about the projection of weakness on the world stage and others have noticed. china is becoming more aggressive towards taiwan. russia becoming more aggressive in ukraine. president biden is scheduled to meet with vladimir putin, i believe is it today or the coming days. on tuesday. on tuesday he's going to meet with vladimir putin, expected to address the sort of posturing and military buildup around ukraine. here's what biden is saying about that meeting coming up. >> what will you do to prevent russia from invading ukraine, the ap is reporting they're expected to potentially invade in 2022. >> we are aware of russia's
6:10 am
actions for a long time. and my expectation is they're going to have a long discussion. >> is there a red line -- >> i don't expect anybody's red line. >> you can see at the bottom of the screen, it will be a zoom call between biden and putin. what has to happen in that meeting, congresswoman? >> well, first of all, putin senses weakness and we have seen nothing but weakness when it comes to president joe biden's foreign policy. this is not the first step that putin has taken to take advantage of that weakness. we've seen cyber attacks, we've seen ransomware attacks, we've seen this administration prioritize russia when it comes energy rather than european allies. unfort netly, i don't think we're going -- unfortunately i don't think we're going to see strength from joe biden. he should be showing strengths. he needs to stand up with ukrainians, make sure vladimir putin understands there will be significant he global consequences, not just from the united states but from allies around the world. and again, you would not see
6:11 am
this happen under president trump because putin understands strength. he understands american strength and consequences and just look at those responses from joe biden. those were weak responses and putin sees that. >> yeah, give him a pipeline, and ultimately you give him a green light and that's exactly what putin seems to be sensing right now so we'll see where that zoom call goes. we have to get your take on one more thing this morning as well. this past week we heard oral arguments in the supreme court about a law in mississippi that would ban abortion after 15 weeks. it is a direct challenge to roe v wade, really the first that's come about with a conservative majority in the court because of donald trump. you heard the org. arguments. what's your -- the oral arguments, what's your take away from that and what do you hope and expect to see. >> my take away is that it's long overdue. we need to stand strong when it comes to defending life. i'm a new mom. i understand that we need to protect life as americans.
6:12 am
and i heard one of my colleagues say something that i think we should think about as every american. life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. we mentioned life first for a reason in our founding documents. so this is going to be very important. it's going to be important to protect the constitutional protections for life in this country and what's very concerning is now you're hearing democrats talking about packing the court. because they can't win elections, because they wand to undermine the system, they're talking about packing the courts. rachel: absolutely. elise stefanik, congresswoman, thank you for joining us today. thank you for your wise words. no one understands the humanity of a fetus more than a new mom and so thank you for joining us today. merry christmas to you as well. >> merry christmas. >> merry christmas. rachel: all right. give that baby a hug from me. thanks, elise. we're going to turn to your headlines. more than 40,000 people turning out to protest austria's covid
6:13 am
lockdown, in vienna, austria, reenacting a lockdown last month and beginning in february, the country is planning to make the covid vaccine mandatory for all adults, this as oregon health authority is considering a permanent mask mandate, oregon is one of six states to have an indoor mask mandate. it is currently set to expire in february. >> did i miss the that earlier, a permanent mask mandate. rachel: yeah, you missed it. >> what? rachel: yeah. who wants to live in oregon? thieves steal million dollars worth of products in a single month from 15 cannabis shops in the san francisco bay area. business owners say it was safer to sell on the streets. illegally, this, amid a string of brazen smash and grab robberies across the state. police are saying marijuana stores were specifically targeted and 175 shots were fired during cannabis store robberies last month alone. travelers will have a shot at
6:14 am
staying in some iconic movie homes for the holidays. take a look. >> i can't seem to find my tooth brush so i'll pick one up when i go out today. other than that i'm in good shape [scream] >> on such short notice, even if i wanted to go, my schedule wouldn't allow it. rachel: the home alone house in illinois will be up on airbnb for one night only. the cost of just $25. i think that's unbelievable. but okay. the grinch's cave in utah costs only $19.57 a night. that price in honor of the book's original release date which is 1957. now we understand. we were wondering where that $19.57 came from. >> that permanent mask mandate would set you back a little bit. it's politicians giving themselves the ability to keep it as long as they want instead
6:15 am
of having to renew their orders. you see what i'm saying. >> they're not saying it's permanent. they're saying they have the permanent ability to tell you to put a diaper back on. >> oregon is on until further notice. until they change their mind. >> that's the kind of policy that leads to what you see in vienna. rachel: that's right. >> all of that i think you would see that response from the american people, you're going to permanently alter the trajectory of my life. rachel: unless in oregon they love being submissive to the government. >> e-mail us if you're from eastern oregon. [laughter] >> maybe portland. but everywhere not so much. coming up the parents of the suspected school shooter pled not guilty to involuntary manslaughter but did they or the school ignore the warning signs. a family psychologist weighs in, next.

rachel: the parents of the 15-year-old accused of fatally shooting four students at a michigan high school pleading not guilty to involuntary manslaughter charge as investigations, pete, -- paint a very disturbing picture about the red flags raised about the shooter before the damage. >> i the day of the -- the
6:20 am
damage. >> i the day before the shooting, a teacher saw drawings that concerned the teacher related to blood and a person depicted laying with blood around them and possibly gunshot wounds. since this happened, there's been a spike exponentially, we've had hundreds of threats that have come in after the shooting. rachel: dr. jeff gardier is a family psychologist and associate professor of osteopa a osteopathic medicine in new york city. he joins us to he react. first of all, thank you for coming. we talked about this all day yesterday and both me and my colleagues, will and pete, said this, you know, we think there's something bigger going on. first, let's go into this case. why do you think that after seeing these drawings, seeing that he actually wrote that -- help me, that he was allowed back into the school. was that a big mistake on the school's part as well?
6:21 am
>> i think a lot of people, rachel, are questioning that right now and a we know there will probably be lawsuits around this particular situation and let's not forget even before this, he was on his phone the day before, searching for ammunition. so that was a red flag in itself. i think as we look back on something like this, we can learn many things and that is certainly if a parent is called in or parents are called in to take the child out of the school, they should be required to take the child out of the school or if nothing else, call 911 and make sure that that particular child gets a psychiatric evaluation for the safety of that particular child and especially the safety of everyone else at the school in that particular environment. rachel: i can't imagine being one of those parents, knowing that they allowed him to come back in the school after seeing these signs. what kind of signs do you think the parents missed there? >> well, certainly for someone to be involved in that kind of a
6:22 am
aing -- shooting tells me there were prior mental health issues and certainly buying a gun for a 15-year-old who is having those mental health challenges is something you do not want to do. so more than anything else, i think with any parent who has a child who is having some issues around anxiety or depression or any other mental health challenge, make sure that they get an evaluation, number one, and number two, that they get some sort of treatment. we can't wish these things away because they are enduring. rachel: we know that there are a lot of psychological problems with young people. it's spiking, probably the pandemic has much to do with it. we know there's also a shortage of health -- mental health professionals. thank god you do this type of work, people need that. tell us what's going on in the culture at large because this sheriff said that he has seen these kinds of threats on a weekly, monthly basis.
6:23 am
what is happening with young people today? maybe in particular with young men. >> well, we certainly know that there is an issue with toxic masculinity. we talked a lot about that. certainly using fists and aggression more than using their minds. that's a particularrish b shy. secondly -- particular issue. secondly, we're in a pandemic and we've seen a spike in suicides for young people. we've seen a spike in aggression. they're having a lot of mental health issues that are not being addressed. i don't want this to be a political thing but we have to look at sensible gun laws and making sure that young people and especially people with mental health issues don't have access to guns. they should be locked away in safes and so on when we talk about those particular weapons. rachel: yeah. a lot to unpack there. i don't know about toxic masculinity. we'll have to talk about that on another episode. you're so right, there were so
6:24 am
many warning signs and such a tragedy. thank you for joining us today. >> of course. condolences to the families who have been impacted by this, sending prayers. rachel: absolutely. don't move because maria bartiromo is joining us live. but first, santa's got a dirty job and it is topping the charts. the singing duo behind it will join us live, next. ♪ santa claus has got a dirty job. ♪ and he does it all night long as a dj, i know all about customization. that's why i love liberty mutual. they customize my car insurance, so i only pay for what i need. how about a throwback? ♪ liberty, liberty, liberty, liberty ♪ only pay for what you need. ♪ liberty, liberty, liberty, liberty ♪ >> are you ready to start a great career? >> safelite is now hiring. >> you will love your job. >> there's room to grow... >> ...and lots of opportunities. >> so, what are you waiting for? >> apply now... >> ...and make a difference.

6:40 am
tell us about it, joe. >> 18 years ago a mother came in and asked us to send a tree to her son who just got deployed. we didn't know how to do it. luckily for us, we have a friend jim adelis who knew kathy o'reilly at dhl. dhl ships over there worldwide, actually, and dhl got it done for us so we were really lucky. >> dhl's role in this, without you guys it doesn't get there. >> that's very true. so first class accommodation in the aircraft, right, coming out of here out of jfk. they'll go out tomorrow, give you an idea of how fast it goes. come wednesday morning they'll start doing delivery toss the troops. rachel: amazing. >> how many trees are delivered every year to our troops? >> hundreds of trees every year, and since we started this, it's well over 10,000. >> super cool. colonel, what does it mean, just to get a slice of christmas. >> any command team overseas would know one of the priorities is morale and welfare. you're away from your family for a year, you're in an austere
6:41 am
environment and when this plane load -- i've been there, i've been the recipient. that's why i'm engaged with these folks. it brings a taste of home back with the trees, the onments and -- onments, the care packages, the generosity of the rock away community, we take take a plane. >> i will tell you this, having been deployed three christmases in my life, three different places, there's something about having a christmas tree. even if it's a little one near your bunk. i mean, it makes you feel like you're at home. you're with a different form of a family in brothers but it really does mean something. and these guys here got up early with us and they've been filling out cards, braving the -- it's a little cold. it's a little cold. tell us about the cards, though. how many troops? what impact will this have here? >> it has a huge impact. when they get these cards, it's the sweetest thing. it completely takes your mind off of all the other stuff that
6:42 am
we're focused on. and you know, the innocence, the sweetness, the love that comes out of these children from these cards is beautiful. rachel: letters from home. means a lot. >> the lessons that these kids are learning about what they can do to help our troops overseas. >> that's what's been great for us. it's been a great community event. so towns all around us, boy scouts, girl scouts, churches, synagogues, everyone has gotten involved so it's been a great community event. >> and michael, sort of last word, is there a way other people can get involved to support these efforts? >> so when we have community actions like this, the best thing they can do is engage with these and so forth and we take the delivery aspect to that, right to the outreaches. i can tell you, i personally have delivered the trees myself in the horn of africa several years ago. it's an immense morale impact to nirm. you have to look at it. we're not only thanking them for their service, also the personal sacrifice being away from families this time of year. rachel: it makes families feel
6:43 am
good that people care enough to do this. they're back home but they're worried about loved ones overseas. >> what an amazing effort for sure. michael taylor, colonel sullivan and the kids who asked if they volunteered, they said they were volun-told. oh, they volunteered. i like the one volunteer. >> thank you, guys. >> we love seeing you guys here every year. >> will has been complaining about the cold out here all morning. it's not that bad. let's talk a little bit of weather. take a look at the weather maps. almost the entire country is seeing temperatures well above average and take a look at that. you're right here in the morning at about 8:30 in dallas, 64 degrees. 62 in memphis, 52 in kansas city. get ready, there are changes coming, there's a storm we'll be dealing with. there's rain across parts of illinois, snow across the far northern tier, up of michigan
6:44 am
may have 15 inches of snow. a little bit of a break across areas of the pacific northwest. here's how much snow we get from the storm, tonight into tomorrow morning, the southern side potentially bringing severe weather to arkansas, texas and louisiana. we'll watch for that pete, over to you. pete: thank you, rich. well done. communist china taking aim at u.s. democracy ahead of biden's global summit next week. a party official claiming covid-19 exposed defects in the american system, that's quite rich and said it brings difficulty to voters and lloyd austin says america is not going to back down from the chinese challenge. >> america isn't a country take that fears competition. and we're going to meet this one with confidence and resolve. and not panic and pessimism.
6:45 am
>> joining us now, host of sunday morning futures, maria bartiromo. she'll be on in about 15 minutes. first, we get a chance to talk to her. by the way it was great to see you at the tunnel of towers event. maria: it was great to see you. pete: fox has been so generous supporting them. of course you were there, you're such a wonderful patriot and supporter of what they do. when it comes to the communist chinese, whether it's covid, them calling us out for covid, whether it's taiwan, whether it's military readiness, where are we on that front? maria: well, it's all very rich, pete. and let me just take this opportunity to thank you. you are a national jewel for this country, spending three christmases on duty overseas. thank you, pete hegseth for your patriotism and fighting for our freedom so much as you have. the problem is, is that this administration does not see china as it is, the way you on the ground know your enemy and
6:46 am
know your adversary. these people in the white house keep calling communist china a challenge, a challenger, a competitor. no, no, no, no, communist china is an adversary and if you really want to get serious about taking on the biggest adversary out there, you need to change policy. you need to stop the intellectual property theft that has been going on for decades and put some consequences in there for continuing to steal our intellectual property, as well as putting some guardrails around for human rights abuses and for marching into countries and throwing freedom fighters in jail the way they did in hong kong. so far, i'm not seeing any of that from this administration. let's be clear. communist china is not a competitor. it is an adverse sharely. share -- adversary. start acting that way by increasing the defense budget. joe biden bernie sanders budget
6:47 am
doesn't have a dime of increase in the defense budget. that's a head scratcher, given the fact that our adversaries are rising and communist china is expecting to overtake the united states as the number one super power. we are all in on this subject this morning and we'll talk about it. pete: you laid it out so beautifully. i'm guessing that's a bit of a preview of what you'll be talking about. who do you have on the show. maria: we begin with greg abbott, the governor of texas getting billions of investment into texas, tesla, samsung, et cetera, and showing some of the lowest covid situations in the country the way florida is so we'll take a look at that. that's going to have some breaking news out of governor greg abbott. we'll also talk with senator kennedy. we want to get to the details on where this build back better plan is because the democrats want it on the books by december 18th before christmas. then we'll talk with someone who has shown moral courage against china and that is boston celtics
6:48 am
star enes kanter, we'll talk with him about what he's been doing in terms of pushing back. wait until you hear, pete, how many companies have gotten behind enes kanter freedom because he is showing such patriotism. pete: interesting. maria: wait until you hear how many companies have said you know what, i like what i'm hearing, i'm going to get behind enes freedom and i'm going to support him. pete: those companies are smart. there's a lot of people out there prepared and ready to support that if given the opportunity and maybe enes kanter freedom is starting that type of movement. what a great show, maria. look forward to watching. maria: see you in 10 minutes. pete: thank you. coming up, it is week 13 of the nfl season. fox has you covered on all the action, marisa thompson joins us live with a look at the big games. of course, my vikings can we beat the winless lions? we'll see. and how you can win $100,000.

6:53 am
games. let's start with arizona cardinals against chicago bears, 1:00, is tyler murray back and is he a big impact. >> he's on back and so is deandre hopkins. they're back together for the first time since week eight. the bears have lost five of the last six. they will be without justin fields, andy dalton getting the start there. the cardinals are perfect on the road this year. i like them by 7:00. >> like them by 7. that's a big win for the cardinals, they're racking them up. the eagles not so much, stumbling a little here an there. so are the jets. they face off at 1:00. >> here's a fun fact for you, will. the jets have never beaten the eagles, the eagles 11-0 against the jets. gardner minchu gets his first start with his new squad. the jets are reeling. zach wilson hasn't thrown a touchdown pass in the last three starts. i like the eagles by 3, just because i'm not sure what i'm getting with gardner yet.
6:54 am
but still like the eagles on this one. will: i didn't know that, 11-0. the jets -- there can't be many franchises that are winless against other franchises, just can't be many of those. bucs, falcons, 4:00, another tough one for the falcons to take on the super bowl champions. >> yeah, this one they met back in week two and tom brady went off, he had five touchdown passes. here's another one fact, because i like you, will. tom brady, 9- 0 against the atlanta falcons. i like the bucs by 14 in this done. kyle pits those get going. this atlanta team has been a disappointment in a lot of ways. a bright spot has been kyle pitts, i like the bucs to go off in this one. they have the number one on offense in the league, expect to be on display against the falcons. >> there's charissa's picks. how can everyone else play along? >> we've got over 1 mill i don'n
