1:00 am
tonight. and as i have always said the reason it is such a disaster these people are machine politicians and don't believe in anything. thank you for watching we will see you next sunday on "the next revolution". >> we began with a fox news alert and a sad way to be here with the nation, the morning comedian and "full house" star bob saget was found dead in a hotel room at the age of 65. good morning, i am todd. >> and i'm ashley strohmier. he was in florida with a comedy tour best known as danny on "full house." >> okay, are we going to have
1:01 am
fun or what? >> since then he has remained an icon in comedy film and tv, marianne rafferty has the details on his death. >> good morning, todd and ashley. news left his fans and celebrities across the country's done. he was found dead in his room the ritz-carlton in orlando sunday night. just yesterday, saget posting a selfie on instagram with a stand-up set in jacksonville as part of his ongoing tour. he said he was "back in comedy like i was when i was 26." before promoting to have his upcoming shows to take place in west palm beach. many of saget's "full house" stars shared the news. a statement reads in part "bob was the most loving, compassionate and generous man. we are deeply saddened he is no longer with us but know he will continue to be by our side to guide us as gracefully as he always has."
1:02 am
and john stay most weeding domain my tweeting i'm complete utter shock i will never ever have another friend like him and i love you so much, bobby." his oldest daughter on full house heading in part, "bob was one of the best human beings i have ever known in my life. i know him so much. in addition to the full house comedy club paying tribute by updating their signs and displays. in a statement that orange county police say no foul play or drug use is suspected in his death. as part of the stand up to her, saget was set to perform across the venues in canada through june 25th. bob saget was 65 years old. ashley, todd. >> todd: marianne rafferty kicking us up on a monday. and i think what hurts about this one, he was sort of america's dad there for a while. "full house" was an institution there in the '80s, early '90s.
1:03 am
i think the story line of a widower and trying to raise all of those girls and obviously having other members of his family there to try to help him out, i think it spoke to a lot of people. what is so fascinating about bob saget if you just remember him from the show, you probably think he is just a milk toast kind of guy but his comedy was pretty raunchy there. he towed the line on appropriate versus inappropriate and that is what made him such a well-rounded entertainment figure. i think the key to me that stands out is all of those tributes from his costars. they said he was a great human being. i think when we ultimately go, that is when we want to be remembered by, one final antidote before i toss it to you, ashley. you remember stories that he is to change some diapers on sets things used to go awry with the olsen girls. i think that speaks to the fact of being america's dad, ashley.
1:04 am
>> ashley: yeah, so around this time i was more of the age mary kate and ashley olsen when this was popular. so come i remember more of that but i remember saget the guy that was overly a foggier gnomic father figure. like you said, todd, that is what makes him so great but i want to humanize this because a lot of people look at celebrities and celebrity dads and they feel like they know these people because of roles they play on tv or if they go to the comedy shows. but you really have to think about the family. he has three girls. he has a wife. it just makes me wonder how they cope and grieve when it is constantly being brought up in the media. in one hand, you are glad they are talking about it and loved your family member and someone you cared so much about, but at the same time, it has to be
1:05 am
pretty hard, like having it rehashed constantly. so, there is always that fine line with that, but of course it was very loved, but as you said, his comedy could be raunchy. so you went with the times. he was what he was supposed to be full full house, that fatherly figure but at 65, he enjoyed comedy and what he was doing. we are going to turn to a fox news alert, the father of novak djokovic telling of the telegraph his son has been arrested peer that comes hours after a judge overturned a decision to revoke his visa. >> todd: the twist and turns in this story are remarkable, early or ruling to release from an immigration hotel where he was being detained. 30 minutes of the decision, the ruling clear the way to compete in the australian open next week. now, that is very uncertain.
1:06 am
>> ashley: the australian government lawyer noted the administration could still impede "extra power of cancellation." that means novak djokovic will face safe deportation and missed the australian open. okay, obviously, this is dragging on to being much more of a situation that i personally think it should be. but todd come if you just go -- this is ridiculous it i think ce if you go and look what it takes for an unvaccinated austrn to leave the country, it is insane. the rules and regulations. you have to file an exemption and explain why you want to leave. so, like i said on friday when i was with you guys filling in for carly, i don't know why he wouldn't just bow out. he had wor $220 million and could win a little over two if he were to win the australian open and i would be like "i'm done with this."
1:07 am
>> todd: it is because he wants to break the grand slam record. when you reach this age that he is, he's not an 18-year-old anymore. the body can break down and the body can break down quickly. and i think novak djokovic from a tennis perspective that this could be one of his final chances to break the grand slam record. it could go away in a heartbeat, but the bigger picture, when it comes to covid is, could this be the breaking point on thin natural immunity discussion? novak djokovic says he has natural immunity. the medical officials said that qualifies for an exemption. where do we go from here both in australia and nationwide? we began this story with the latest breaking news and that he has been arrested. that is something that has just changed within the last few minutes. so this is a story that will have many twists and turns but
1:08 am
again, the take away what happens with natural immunity both in australia and nationwide? we will have to wait and see on that. in the meantime, this is actually a heartbreaking story over the weekend. in other fox news alert, at least 19 people, including nine kids killed in a horrific apartment fire in the bronx. one way recalling to try to escape the smoke. >> there was a body dragging to the fence. i don't know if that person was dead or not. >> todd: 200 firefighters responded to the scene. the fire caused by malfunctioning space heater was knocked down in about an hour. eric adams praising the heroic efforts. fdny of heroic efforts. >> they still pushed through the smoke. you can't do this if you don't
1:09 am
feel attached to the city. >> todd: the bronx building up reportedly had two dozen violations and complaints despite getting $25 million in state loans for repairs. chilling surveillance video showing a robbery suspect pointing his gun at employees inside of a manhattan burger king. the suspect allegedly shot and killed crystal despite the woman handing over money from the cash register which total $100. new york mayor city eric adams outraged over this senseless act. >> that shows a total disregard for life as some people have in the city. and we would rather say that they should be able to walk our streets and at this 19-year-old girl. >> todd: crime stoppers is offering $3,500 award for the capture. >> ashley: the commissioner
1:10 am
bill bratton slamming the new dal and brad for his woke policy with city violence, crisis. he predicts a further spike in crime and bragg says by decriminalizing just about everything you might see. his policies include shopping the policy trespassing and resisting arrest. this follows eric adams promised to return to broken windows policing after winning on it tough on crime approach campaign. in former new jersey governor chris christie who spent nearly seven years as a u.s. attorney is also responding to the d.a.'s radical policies. take a listen. >> the fight here in new york city, because we now have a mayor eric adams who is saying that what he wants is a former police officer is to bring back plain clothes, gun units to take guns off of the streets, to arrest criminals, violent criminals, and he is
1:11 am
already fighting with new manhattan district attorney who says he's not prosecuting any crimes. it is crazy. i will tell you, someone who goes to new york city frequently commit is once again a dangerous place and not a place people would want to go or bring your families. >> ashley: what do these new liberal policies mean for law enforcement? we will discuss that in the next hour and founder of the new york city chapter of blue lives matter. new york congresswoman alexandria ocasio=cortez tested positive for covid days after partying in miami. >> this misinformation circulates on child cases in chicago district shows a fourth straight day. alexandria half joins us with the details, alexandria. >> according to the cdc the data is not there to quantify the covid deaths due to the virus. when it comes to kids, mass hospitalization is not happening
1:12 am
despite what supreme court gestic said last week. that is according to cdc director michelle wilensky. who said this on fox news sunday. >> with elma krohn the death registry come of course, takes a few weeks to collect and of course omicron has been with usa will be forthcoming. but the most thing we can do for the children to get them out of the hospital is to vaccinate them and vaccinate family members around them. >> with the well-being of kids has been question is chicago and school shut down and dragged into the second week now. the teachers union and to force to remote learning for hundreds of thousands of students. >> to be clear that chicago teachers union is an illegal walkout and they have a pen at their post and the kids and their family. >> this is how the union responded to that "do you know the way teachers see that?" we see this as bowling and attempt to not listen to the
1:13 am
people who are actually in there to make schools and education work. but many, of course see this as the pandemic and bargaining chips. randi weingarten, head of national federation of teachers added this: speak with the teachers are trying the best they can. they need to be respected, not vilified. chicago is the exception that proves the rule. >> now it was more expectation than exception when announced yesterday congresswoman alexandria ocasio=cortez testing positive for covid-19. just over a week ago, she was seen dining mask list with her boyfriend in miami and giving out tugs at a brunch. the team said in part she is experiencing simple gnomic symptoms and the congresswoman received her booster shot this fall and encouraged everyone to get her booster and follow all cdc guidance. when the cdc director said the public has lost trust in their guidance, she simply said "our
1:14 am
job is to provide updated guidance." ." todd. >> todd: all right, alexandria, thank you very much. florida governor monte santos on the fight to keep schools open, listen. >> extended rule closures will rule that years and years down the line but we signed into law earlier in 2021 a parent's bill of rights and parents are in the driver's seat when it comes to the health, the education and upbringing of their kids. that impact is like, you can't force a kid to wear a mask to school. so we stood up with parents for parents rights on that. yes, we've been battled on that pier of the teachers union sued me to try to close the schools. we beat the unions on that. some of the school districts fought us because they wanted to force mask on young kids, and we were able to win those battles and win with parents. >> todd: next hour, a chicago mom joins us live to discuss the impact of the union walk out on
1:15 am
her three kids and spoiler alert, she's not very happy about it. >> ashley: i can imagine. the house minority leader kevin mccarthy is anticipating a wave of democratic congressional retirements head of the 2022 here is republicans look to retake the house. >> in 2010 when we won the majority, 17 democrats retired. already 25. i expect that number to be up over 30 democrats retirements because they see what the future holds and they see the numbers. we want to earn enough we have a governing majority, that means the realm of 20 or higher. we are fortunate enough to win 35 republican seats. that would be the largest republican majority more than 100 years. >> ashley: mccarthy added a fire house nancy pelosi bite taking the house majority and opened the afghanistan withdrawal inventing lawlessness at the southern borders and will the pipe and administration be accountable? >> todd: let's head to the nfl

treatment. he was the only person on board. >> todd: wow, that is literally like you see in the movies, but that is real-life and scary. the san francisco fire department urging the public not to call 911 for nonemergencies due to severe staff shortages. san francisco fire chief claims it is receiving calls for nonlife-threatening purposes stemming from the omicron variant amidst drone fires out with covid. there are abundant calls about my old symptoms and testing requirements. 22 minutes after the hour now, or is on adjoining filmic 20 positive covid symptomatic hospital workers to continue working. all of this as cdc director michelle will linsky tries to explain the updated guidance for workers on "fox news sunday." >> the thing that is most disruptive to any business or industry is to have half the workforce out because they are sick with covid appeared right now the most important thing to do is to protect americans. we do that by getting them
1:23 am
vaccinated and get them boosted. >> ashley: caitlin was 1 of 700 mayo clinic workers filed last fired last week to comply with the vaccine mandate and she joins us live. first off, i want to clarify mayo clinic's official policy is not to go back covid positive workers just to throw that out there. you were let go from your job january 3rd that we just heard michelle will linsky's statement as far as trying to clarify some things that they are saying as far as workers and having thayer staff out. do you think it is contradicted at all that she says it will hamper the hospitals for having half of the workforce out because of covid but yet you still see people get covid with the vaccine and you got fired for not complying. >> oh, yeah, you know, there is a lot of air in the with it and
1:24 am
it is super unfortunate because there are vaccinated coworkers who have been exposed and they are waiting for their test results to come back and they are still allowing them to come to work. their test results are coming back positive towards the end of the shift and they have work that will shift with the patient and not even sending them home. at the end of the day, to fire me, who is negative because i am not vaccinated, but to let vaccinated positive employees still work and take care of patience is not safe or for the best interest of the patience, unfortunately. >> todd: focusing on your situation for a moment, how much of a gut punch was it to basically be fired for your religion? >> yeah, you know, it was heart-wrenching. it was devastating. the whole process of the
1:25 am
religious exemption was beyond intrusive, and i feel like it put my religion and my faith on trial and completely overreach from mayo and should not have happened in the first place. no one should have to make this choice. >> ashley: and i want to point out this past christmas, you did work. you said you missed your son's first christmas. that is a huge milestone for you and your family and to have to work and ultimately be let go just a few days later, what are you going to do? are you guys going to move? are you potentially going to go someplace that don't have these rules to keep doing what you love? >> yeah, that is true, i did have to work christmas and it was absolutely heartbreaking. i worked christmas eve and christmas day and i couldn't be with my son for his first christmas. i was caring for covid patience. and then a week later to be, you know, pushed out the door was
