2:00 am
>> we begin with a fox news alert. teachers forcing chicago public schools to cancel class for a third straight day with no clear end in sight between the showdown between union and city hall. it is friday, january 7, you are watching "fox and friends first." i'm todd piro. >> and i'm -- in for carley shimkus. the public school system is refusing to pay educators who do not show up for in-person work and demanding they end their "illegal" work stoppage. here is more from lauren. >> good morning, ashley. todd, for a third straight day chicago schools replain closed,
2:01 am
at odds over in-person learning as omicron spreads. left in the middle is students and parents. >> it is out of nowhere and devastating to see my kids have to suffer remote learning again. they don't learn anything. >> the union voted to resume virtual learning and says democratic mayor lori lightfoot received millions in funds. lightfoot cited with the teacher union in the beginning now blames them for playing politics. >> i think the only way to read it as union trying to pull aside the pandemic. this is about politics, not the pandemic. we're drawing a line. enough is enough. we need partnership not conflict right now. >> chicago is not the only school system with teachers skipping class.
2:02 am
in california, they are threatening a sick-out over covid plans. >> we're trying to prevent shutting of schools if we do not have the staff. >> the chicago public school system warned educators, if you don't show up, you don't get paid. mayor lightfoot announced the city fired unfair labor practice complaint against the teachers. >> ashley: trey gowdy says it will affect. >> bars are open and schools are closed, good luck selling that in november. i enjoy the democrat against democrat violence that we're watching. for a party that claims to be about kids, leaving the bars open and closing the schools, good luck in november.
2:03 am
>> ashley: the bars are open, the schools are closed. makes you wonder where people's heads are and if they don't want to go to work. i hope that is not the case. todd and i both come from families with teachers. our grandmothers were teachers. my aunts were school teachers, as well. this will come back on the politicians. teacher unions need to get this under control and do something that works. what they are doing is not working. go back to the drawing board and figure out how to come to an agreement. and have the benefit of kidss in mind. they already suffered for two years on this. i'm not a parent, not claiming to know about being a parent. i have enough friends with kids to know and obviously i was a child at some point and i understand the importance of going to school and being able
2:04 am
to be in a learning environment. i can only imagine how people feel working from home, i feel like there is not exactly that push that you need when you are sitting in a classroom or in a work environment. i also do want to make the point with the teachers unions, they are using kids as pawns is what i'm starting to think because they get all the demands met. they got their mask mandate, when is it going to stop and what will it take and who will have to step up? parents ultimately, todd. >> todd: yeah, when is enough enough for the unions. there is a lot of blame to go around, from the top. lori lightfoot accusing unions of politicizing the pandemic and that is what she has done since march of 2020 and leaders across
2:05 am
the country have done. let's get to the unions, your point is well taken. they will push until they get more, more, more. when is it going to stop? it is important you brought up the teachers. oftentimes, the teachers want to go back to class and they are desperate, i've seen an outpouring of support for teachers. this is different situation in chicago. you have 70% of teachers saying they do not want to go to work. they voted for the union proposal to not go to work and that is what i think differentiates this situation from the situation in a lot of countries where teachers are shouldering the burden and doing amazing work. all the teachers are doing is defying the science and what the experts say that school is the safest place to be and defying what the white house is telling them to do. it all comes back to what trey
2:06 am
gowdy said, democratic party did not learn a lesson from virginia. parents get mad when you go after their kids and do something to jeopardize kids. we saw youngkin win on crt, when you expand that to shutting schools period, not even discussion of what you are teaching, parents, it will come out in november of this year. we're awaiting the release -- please. >> ashley: one more point, it is unfortunate all teachers are lumped into this one sum. 70% were for this, but 30% are not for this. it is unfortunate that everyone is being lumped into that. like i said, we have to come to an agreement on something. >> todd: you will be speaking to one of them in a few minutes. you are right, we cannot demonize the entire teacher
2:07 am
population of chicago, some are doing the right thing. we're ark waiting the release of the december jobs report this morning. democratss chomping at the bit, hoping for strong numbers as omicron cases surge and biden approval rating plummets. six of joe biden former health advisors urge him to change his pandemic strategy. the group saying the administration needs to clearly communicate current goals and strategies instead of shifting from one crisis to another. seven after the hour. republicans mocking democrats theatrical january 6 event as more than a push to promote an election narrative as their agenda spireals out of control. president biden marking the day by going after former president trump. listen. >> president biden: former president of the united states of america has created and spread a web of lies about the
2:08 am
2020 election, he's done so because he values power over principal. his bruised eshg go matters more than our democracy or constitution. >> todd: there is the unity we were promised on inauguration day. kamala harris equating capitol riot with pearl harbor and the 9/11 terror dates. >> december 7, 1941, september 11, 2001, and january 6, 2021. >> todd: unconscionable. house speaker nancy pelosi taking the opportunity to incorporate actual political theater. yeah. that is hamilton, she played prerecorded message from the cast of hamilton. that performance blowing up on social media, many calling it cringe and bizarre.
2:09 am
lara trump will join us to discuss my money on the fact she will have something interesting to say about that, ash. >> ashley: look forward to that one. former house speaker newt gingrich related to what he saw yesterday. listen. >> the most viciously partisan personal assault i think any american president has ever given and these folks mastered this hypocrisy of saying i finish beating you up, kicking you on the ground, can i stand there and tell everybody how much i want us to work together? that is what we saw today. kamala harris's insane suggestion that pearl harsh on and 9/11, each involved thousands of dead americans were comparable to what happened last year on the 6th of january. >> todd: a certain part is laughable, but if you were one who lost family members on 9/11
2:10 am
or have a grandfather or great uncle at pearl harbor and know people who died, that is not a laughing matter. the fact she combined those three is unbelievable. the mixed messaging and confusion from our cdc director rochelle walensky is too much for the "new york times" to handle. we have scathing criticism from the gray lady. >> ashley: new york city business owners bracing themselves for return to lawlessness and anarchy under manhattan's new coke d.a. how bad could it get? david webb is here to tell us. ♪ before treating your chronic migraine, 15 or more headache days a month each lasting 4 hours or more, you're not the only one with questions about botox®. botox® prevents headaches in adults with chronic migraine before they even start, with about 10 minutes of treatment once every 3 months.

right after new year's and on day three, he issues this day one memo that gives a roadmap to criminals that outlines, being read by criminals not just law-ark biding citizens like you and me and outlines what you can and can't get away with clearly. it opens the door for criminality. i cheeked with people who work the streets and they confirm this. criminals know what they can't do. you know who pays the price? bodega, the mom and pop. bragg's intention is to empower criminals rather than put criminals away and have fair policing practices that protect the community. >> todd: before we get to kamala harris, will mayor eric adams reign this guy in? >> no. i have been warning people about
2:18 am
eric adams since day one. he is not who he proports to be. former police officer, look at his mandates, he's a far left mayor. >> todd: that is extremely concerning. this is beyond concerning. i'm running out of words to describe this. vice president harris making comparison between january 6 and terror attacks on 9/11 and war, literally the start of our entrant into world war ii. take a listen. >> certain dates echo throughout history issue dates that occupy place on our calendars, but a place in our collective memory. december 7, 1941, september 11, 2001, and january 6, 2021. >> todd: look, this is not a radio talk show host or msnbc,
2:19 am
this is vice president of the united states. how does she dishonor the victims of the two tragedies, most historic tragedies like that, david? >> david: because she's an incomtent lestist and doesn't care. i reviewed survivors. i lost someone in every airplane and building in the pentagon on 9/11, as did many americans. they are using fear. democrats have nothing else to sell, but fear. the whole january 6 memorializing is attempt to enshrine this in american history as something it is not. just like they tried to rewrite american history, they would like to rewrite current american history and yes, a terrible day, a riot who should never have happened. it gave democrats a weapon to use against america, not just donald trump.

corner. you have been a math teach sxer chess coach for 17 years and currently teach at the elementary school in chicago. tell me why you are one of the few teachers it seems in chicago pushing back on the union trying to get kids in the classroom? >> good morning, ashley. yes, that is correct. i've been with chicago public school for 17 years. the thing is that i have also done remote learning with my students last year, plus more than a year classes were suspended, we did remote learning. when the students came back, i noticed it is not really that effective. there are a lot of limitations i had to face, a lot of challenges i had to face in remote learning. basically even the math
2:29 am
concepts, it is not what it used to be in the past when i was teaching in person and compared to what i did in remote learning. it is the kids that suffer out of this remote learning arrangement, i thought i cannot be part of it and to think that my classroom, my students, 82 of them out of the classes, not one, not one has covid, i'm not aware of a teacher who has covid in my school. i cannot see the reason why we should be staying home when my school doesn't have that problem of covid. we have been trying to follow the safety protocols, safety
2:30 am
measures, even in my classroom. it is not clear to the students and the parents. >> ashley: you think the union should go school -- on a school-by-school basis to combat the issue. your students aren't being affected, as much. question about obviously you have been a math teacher for 17 years, would you say that the issue that you are facing as far as prepandemic and post pandemic and what we're dealing with now, do you think the lack of in-person learning will affect kids long-term? >> i believe so. i believe so, just for one year of remote learning that we did last year, when they came back, it entailed a lot of adjustmentss, even socially. from the start of the school
2:31 am
year, this year, august, started and took about four months of adjustment. we are again facing this remote learning that the union is demanding and i feel it is not really beneficial anymore to the kids. the thing i'm handling -- about to graduate, point is that number of them are not even ready for high school, if this is what is going to happen. i'm concerned about the impact that it creates, negative impact it creates on my students. i just want to have my students successful be ready for high school and be ready for higher learning and life. >> ashley: eighth grade is a detrimental year, can go either way, especially going to high school. this upsets me so much, there are teachers like you issue

hurt and quite frankly, no one knows what to do, particularly when you are waiting for a test to see if you are covid positive and that is taking days to come back or you can't find a test or have to wait in line for hours. adults in charge, guys, children appear to be in charge at critical time in this country's path as far as covid is concerned. >> ashley: right. let's not forget rhode island and the healthcare system allowing covid positive workers to be in the hospital, that is neither here nor there, a different conversation, but confusing language. joe concha, thank you. president biden former advisors urging him to change strategy when it comess to dealing with the pandemic. cheryl casone has advice for the former boss next. ♪
