because its demands weren't met. more than 90% faxed. don't take my word for it. the entire school system for what? when our district was always remote, our children suffered. there is no disputing that reality, we should not be politicizing the pandemic. that is a mistake. and ultimately hurts our children and families. >> i believe schools should remain open. they have what they need because the american rescue plan we provided the states with 130 billion. a billion dollars. to specifically keep our students safe and schools open.
to speak of the union is demanding that they spend even e money for a safer work environmt the city of chicago already got $2 billion in covid funds for schools. so what happened all the money? and then there's the signs. eve heard it over and over again. chicago's top docs blasting the unions for not listening. >> at least among children, we have to think of this as similar to the flu. you add vaccination on top of that, the risk is even lower. and that is what we are seeing right now. we need kids to get vaccinated, but i remain extremely comfortable with children continuing in person education. >> jesse: geraldo, if you are the mayor of chicago, god help us all, what do you do? >> well, i think that lori lightfoot is absolutely right, jesse. this is a teachers union ambush. i'm generally prounion, but this
walkout was clumsy, spiteful, it was absolutely devastating for these children's well-being. i think it's absolutely awful. what i would do is to dock them with their pay for every day they are out. and i would continue the lock outcome of the lockout that lori lightfoot has put in place. she is not letting these absent teachers sign on to do their virtual education. so they can say these renegade teachers cannot say that they presented themselves for virtual work, because they are not allowed to sign on, dock their pay. this is absolutely cruel what they have done to these children, jesse. >> that is a good idea. the parents relationship with the teachers has to be destroyed now. it has to be totally destroyed at this point, january 22.
>> look, we are in year three of covid. we know that kids are safest when they are at school. we know because when we talked about it for a long time all of the danger, whether it's psychological mental, whether it is just in terms of emotional. and scholastic. all of the harm to children when they are not at school. domestic violence, child neglect, all of that. we also know that 90% of the teachers are vaccinated. we also know, jesse, $2 billion to protect the schools. where teachers saying it is not safe enough to go to school when they are in one of the most protected environments in the country? i doubt that anything is more protective other than a hospital. it is because the teachers are lazy, but ask yourself this, of all the teachers who were afraid to go to school, 90% of whom are vaccinated among the least affected of our population, children, do they go to dunkin' donuts? do they go to the supermarket?
did they get into an elevator to go to their apartment? do they get on a bus? to the go to the barber shop? are they separating themselves from society at large? or are they too lazy to go to work? and that is what this is. this is an illegal walkout. they should not be paid and it's time for these teachers, and it collected money by the way, for the last three years, it is time for them to knock that paycheck. call it a day and replace them. >> dana, where is michelle obama? where is barack obama? joe biden, doctorate of education, have you seen enough leadership on the national level? to knock some heads together in the city of chicago to get this thing done? >> have you checked to hawaii? that might be one place. i was actually going to bring this up. if biden has an opportunity here to turn something around, which will be about later, if he wants to take it. he has said to them, we gave you the money. lori lightfoot is standing there
by herself. what i would do if i was joe biden's tomorrow after i gave my january 6 commentary at 9:00 a.m., i would get on a plane with dr. jill biden, with miguel cardona, with javier becerra. remember him? the secretary of health and human services? i think he might be in witness protection. he is nowhere to be found. and i would go to chicago, i would stand you had nicole hannah jones, the 6019 project, saying hey, we should be able to talk about how teachers should be in the classroom. and it goes on from there. it's across the board a terrible situation. it's a good thing to think about the future of school choice being more widely accessible
about this? because it was his kid. it was his kid. so it goes to the got fouled rule, nothing bad ever happens until it happens to somebody in the media. and that is what you are seeing right now by the union spirit the loonies of the left. dana mentioned hannah jones, you had the walking head injury known as joe lockhart. you've got lori lightfoot, who was about ten years behind us in this matter, finally catching up to us. once again you see that flag, and other people that refuse to listen to us are saying, holy, it is now my kids. it is now my job. it is now my career. what the f are we going to do? we've been saying this for two years you stupid. i've no sympathy for lori lightfoot. but none of these people are leaders. it is time for the american public to become the leaders to say we've had enough of this. if you are not teaching our kids -- we are not going to pay

sports on now. touchdown irish! [cheering] that was awesome. and, the hits won't quit, with peacock premium included at no additional cost. all that entertainment built in. xfinity. a way better way to watch. >> dana: in america has seen a spike in crime, but that's not stopping the new district attorney from rolling out a plan that will prosecute in certain offenses. the new approach has no prison time for smaller charges including trespassing, resisting arrest, and turnstile jumping to avoid a fair bit of the new be reducing charges for serious crimes like armed robbery. for example, if a thief uses a gun to rob a store but no one gets hurt, it would just be a misdemeanor instead of a felony.
charges will also be slashed for stealing from stores and homes as well as dealing drugs. eric shawn had a chance to talk to the new district attorney today, let's take a listen to that. >> with these policies give criminals the green light? >> no. we have laid out a path that is going to reduce incarceration, reduce violent crime, get people services, make neighborhoods safer, get new york city back up on its feet. >> dana: judge, what is your definition of criminal? >> everything we've identified in the new york state penal law, which is been voted on by the legislature and i want to know who this guy thinks he is. he was elected as a d.a., the job of the d.a. is to enforce the law. it is not to amend it, it is not to write it, it is not to repeal it. this guy doesn't understand what his job is. follow me on this, if you want
to take a bus and not pay for it, have at it. if you want to keep one of those rental bikes, go ahead and keep it. do you want to not pay for a taxi ride? that's no problem. all of the business and all this court don't like storekeepers in new york city, if again comes in with a gun, i don't care if it's an ak-47, and ar, whatever. there is no risk of genuine physical injury or serious physical injury, which means a risk of death. then they are going to get away with a misdemeanor, which is like stealing a dvd out of a store. this man is looking to create lawlessness and anarchy in new york city. let me tell you one more thing, guys. because i did this for 30 years. this is going to throw us back to the wild west. new york will lose its home values, its business values. your kids are not safe going to school. you are not safe riding on the streets. there is no traffic crimes that
will be prosecuted. you can drive 120 miles an hour drone sixth avenue pair that guy will not be prosecuted for resisting arrest. we ought to start the recall now. >> dana: generally new yorkers everywhere. greg, i give you the floor. >> greg: i wish it was just new york. and if there were people watching at home that that hey, it's not new york -- >> the d.a. in new york. >> greg: i understand what i'm trying to bring up a different point. you should look at texas is well with an largest county that is 150 murderers that were committed by violent offenders out on bond. you can sit here and talk about the wacky lenny left on the coast which is real, but this is spreading like black mold all over the country. it leads me to, why does this keep happening? it is interesting when you look at how the media and the democrats pay attention to certain types of crime as opposed to others.
crime is now become a political variable for nearly two years. we were told that there is no riots, there is no crime wave, there's no explosion in murder, it was mocked on cnn, but then january 6 happened and suddenly seeing on broke up for one day. and why is this happening? it's because your victimization, the average american's victimization is not the media's shared experience. like i said in a blog, nor does it validate their political beliefs. the fact is the guy in a viking hat validates their political assessments about the people they despise. therefore that is more important than thousands of murder victims strong across this country. we are living in a world where inconsistencies and beliefs about crime are based on how it helps somebody politically. that is why that stuff still exists. >> dana: i think you know eric adams. do you think he will be able to do anything to mitigate what
looks like is going to be a real problem? >> i certainly hope so. i think that alvin bragg has not yet cleared any of these things. with mayor adams, who of course was a former crime boston police captain. i personally do not believe this is going to really be the way manhattan progresses. i started my legal career in that office. my d.a. was frank hogan, a crime buster. he was famous for going after the real criminals. understand this. that a person can come in, the judge referred to it, can come into a store and say okay, everybody against the wall. and stick the gun in the person's face come i put them on the floor with their head on the floor and put the guns in the back of their head. can terrorize them, can be an old lady, they can jump the cashiers counter there. and then be charged with a
misdemeanor. this is preposterous. this is ridiculous. it defies common sense. it is the opposite of what they did with their broken windows policing. this is not the way to fight crime, this is the way to encourage anarchy, to bring down property values, to scare the be out of people. this is horrible bad thinking, i don't know where this person got this notion, but i agree with greg, and it is like a cancer because it is easy, jails are full, once the antidote to pull jails, you don't put people in jail. so if you only put people that actually shoot victims in jail, not the ones who menaced them, you are on the road to hell. >> jesse, as alvin bragg, new york's larry krasner from philadelphia. >> i thought bill de blasio was long gone, but no, he popped up in the body of this kook. let me paint a picture for you.
let's just say i'm a male and i've got the leather pants real tight, got the nice tight shirt on. also turning tricks on private property. and a couple grams of marijuana that i'm selling out of the side. okay? property owner calls me, tells me to leave, now they call 911, the cops show up. what do i do? i run. this is a long foot pursuit, right? i'm weaving in and out of traffic, knocking old lady is over. i jumped onto the subway, hop the turnstile, they finally tackle me and i resist. it is a huge problem. the cops are getting scraped up in the struggle for the cuff may come with a me, i'm not. and the d.a.'s going to shelve every single piece right there, and shoved every single beef. i get out the next, point a loaded revolver at a guys head, swing some narcotics on the way home. maybe i will do a week or two.
not only that, this memo he posted, this communist manifesto basically, he goes you know what? even three days in jail could jeopardize someone housing. okay, so sex offender gets to brutalize some teenager and they get booked for auditing, they don't want to keep them on pretrial. he wants to let them walk so he can re-victimize some of their teenager, some predator? this guy's insane. he just cares more about empty in the prisons than protecting the community. >> jesse, i don't know if i will ever be able to get that visual out of my mind. very effective. >> it suddenly made jesse way more interesting. a male. [laughter] >> you know what -- >> normally wouldn't run because they are not prosecuting. but -- >> i think it was money from the drugs.

♪ ♪ >> democrats starting to push the panic button as joe biden directs his entire party down the drain. a new poll shows 54% of americans disapprove of the president. on those catastrophic numbers spelling doom and gloom for dems in the midterm. nancy pelosi is scared and knows a red wave is coming. she is reportedly telling donors that democrats need to be more boastful about biden's accomplishments. but more dems keep heading for the exits.
a 25th democrats will not seek reelection. all right, i will start with you, dana. how is it that the democrats should be more boastful about joe biden's accomplishments? what has he accomplished? >> several things. any administration gun, even if it's a thin record. one of the things that happened for the biden administration, he made a huge mistake. he has a bipartisan infrastructure deal that was right there for the signing, but instead of going for that in april, he decided to link it to the bigger, big huge build back better agenda, which got completely bogged down over the summer, inflation started rising, and as you saw afghanistan happened right around there. the poll numbers continue to go down. if he has signed bipartisan infrastructure bill, which had pretty good support, even president trump wanted to do it, he would've done it differently, little less on the green side of
things. but that is what nancy pelosi is saying. because when you pull people and say, what do you think biden is accomplished? nobody has any idea that infrastructure bill actually got signed. that is purely the fault of president biden on the chief of staff in terms of the strategy. the other thing is that the cnbc poll that came out that said 72% of americans do not -- disapprove of biden -- 72%, that is a huge number. that is means he is losing a slew of democrats as well. >> before we get off that subject, the fact is that nancy pelosi is saying we need the democrats -- they need to be more boastful. they shouldn't use the were transformative when they are talking about build back better. i mean, we still of joe manchin as far as i know. >> there's a chance if they pass something it will be severely watered down, but joe biden fell
into the donor trap. right off the dome, he opens the border and he whitewash is the chinese lab leak. big business, love that. then he cracked down on traditional american energy to pay off the grains of money went to bed with the mandates, which totally scrambled the labor market, divided the country, and made everything more expensive. so now we didn't get back to normal like he promised, we don't trust him because he had the mission accomplished moment this summer with the virus and the catastrophe in afghanistan. but the worst thing of all, judge, is that we don't feel like the president is listening to us. we have been screaming about the open border, about crime, but inflation. saying we can't find workers to fill these positions but what does he do? he talks about of michael build back better. no one even cares. and at this point, the guy is basically a joke. he is a joke that even he doesn't get. and i'm talking about "let's go
brandon puritt." >> he said it himself. but what does he do? that press conference yesterday about covid and omicron, i thought he cleared things up. i'm more mussed up in terms of what they wanted to do and not want us to do. what could they do to save whatever possible numbers there are? >> that is a great question paired with a don't want us to do is tried jimmy carter and talk about the malays and the american people, it's all the american people's fault that things are so depressing right now. but i think that in fairness, two points, number one, politics as you know, judge. and dana so that extremely well. politics is like the tide. it's high tide, low tide, high tide, low tide. it's a cycle you can't break regardless of who you are. it is a store, it repeats itself, and right now the democrats are on. the tide is going out rapidly. they are going to have a very,
very difficult time come november. "build back better" that they are arguing with, to say it's transformational, talk about build back better, it is swollen. that is why mansion and cinema went against the president. they had -- because nobody wanted it, even the people that wanted what was in it, said wait a second, what about all this other jelly? this is a very, very bad -- i pick that what the president can do is just stay the course. coronavirus, it's all about the virus, it's all about mixing this thing. he's got to speak with some determination, some clarity, and lucidity. >> geraldo, he didn't even do anything today. he had nothing on his schedule. >> let me ask you -- >> he didn't do anything today. >> 50% of america doesn't think he's doing anything with covid. do you agree with geraldo? >> i think that joe biden is the
blue rona of presidents. return to what i said yesterday, which is when times are tough, leaders are made, but in this case the democrats factory stopped producing real leaders. and why does that happen? it's because the modern democrat can only do one thing. and that is the woke things, right? they can call your racist until they are blue or black in the face. but they can't leave a country in tough times because that is about the identity politics paygrade by focusing on the twitter rabbit food, the stuff that gets the retweets and the excitement, the sweat of identity politics. they forgot how to lead to real people in real time. they forgot what real americans want. they have become completely brainwashed. they've completely let everything else go. >> kamala harris just can't stop

the headaches don't stop there for rvp, remember all those reports of turmoil in her office accusations -- herbie in a terrible boss who lashes out while complaining about potus giving her all the crummy jobs. will she just lost another top staffer, that makes at least five high-profile departures since the vice president took office a year ago. greg, is it really fair to criticize her for the fact that she tweeted at the same time i-95 was choked up? how could she know? >> greg: it is so unfair, these attacks. we all know that this is more from a republican frustration and her obsession with her husband's feet. i want to know where is aoc? law is at a place in her career where she's going to sink or swim. there's no lifeguards at the pool wanting to help her. i'm thinking about her allies. that error that you talk about
is easily prevented. it would not have occurred if there was somebody on her side who just cared a little bit enough to watch out for her, but nobody even bothers to watch out for her. it says a lot about how they feel about her. >> you know, jesse, saw some people dressed in your leather pants in key west over the holiday. i'm going to sick about you and a whole different way. >> please don't. [laughter] >> how can you blame kamala harris for virginia's incompetence with the snow and ice on i-95? they could all concerned, they get half an inch of snow, the whole thing shuts down in late forgot all about it when the sun comes out. that is not kamala harris' fault. >> no, but her tweets or her fault. she's the kind of person who would order a round of kamikazes on the anniversary of pearl harbor. it's who she is. she's the kind of person who would ask, how is your father doing? your father has been dead for ten years. >> no, that's joe biden. >> she wears white to a wedding,
her phone was off during funerals. if she ever -- if the markets doing really great, i would sell. i would sell right then. if you say go out there and break a leg, i would actually think about maybe the fact that i would break my leg. geraldo, she went to vietnam during the afghanistan crisis. she hired child actors to make herself look more authentic and my own personal favorite, she was charging an electric car and she goes, while mark, you don't smell any gas. lorne michaels, wake up. you have a skit every saturday night with this woman right there. it sells itself. just use her. i would watch. but dana, isn't jesse exactly the case of this woman being targeted, the vice president being targeted? >> dana: she's the vice president, the first woman to do that, she's going to be a
target. that is going to be the way it is. she doesn't need to make it so easy. i think that twitter is stupid, young people that are tweeting, he should probably not allow that to happen necessarily, but what was she doing? she was doing what nancy pelosi asked. she was being more boastful about the things that the biden administration had accomplished. she was trying to talk about infrastructure. not only was there the highway problem, but people stuck on a amtrak train. at the very same time. i think one of the biggest problems with this is that americans right now do not feel that the white house understands the problems that they are dealing with. and this is just another example of that. also, i don't blame -- i just think that the staff leaving to go with the executive director of the congressional black caucus, that is a promotion and she should be proud of that. she probably helped him get that job. i think that might be a little bit of criticism that is overwrought. >> they could've really bragged about that. judge, could she, regardless
question marks because she is an embarrassment to women. and it doesn't matter what color she has. let me finish. it doesn't matter what color she has, what identity she has, she is as serious questions on serious topics in a very serious time in our history. it is a time of great consequence. where there is chaos and anarchy all around us and say we are not going to live him behind and then get them out without bringing them home. and she laughs at every serious question p let me tell you something, i don't expect anyone to stand up for her, know they should. i stood up for myself. and if she can't make that case for herself, then she shouldn't be in that position. and i'll tell you something else, the promise of that twitter was false. she said because of build back better, america's -- there is an inch of road that's been paid,
