tv   Your World With Neil Cavuto  FOX News  July 22, 2022 1:00pm-2:00pm PDT

1:00 pm
sunday. peggy was in the marine corps women's reserve. a remarkable couple. we thank them for their service. they've been married since 1945 and live in orlando. thanks for your service to our great nation. what an inspiring couple. that's "the story" for today. we'll see you back here monday. >> neil: fox on top of a covid wave just ramping up again. a heat wave that is not letting up and a former trump adviser that says he's not giving up. nearly half of all miles per hours are dealing with scorching temperatures. many are now dealing with spiking covid infections as well. and steve bannon dealing with a guilty verdict. all of this as the white house has said that biden's symptoms are indeed improving. we have you covered and how long
1:01 pm
the heat will be lasting. dr. deborah birx on why covid cases are surging. welcome. i'm neil cavuto, this is "your world." you piled the news into this day capping a news week. let's go back to the white house with a president trying to get back to business as usual. >> moments ago, we heard from the white house. said the president is doing well. that his condition as improved and his appetite is still there. certainly trying to put a positive spin on the president's diagnose. officials say that he was still suffering from some of the same symptoms that we saw just yesterday, which was the cough, the run any nose and the fatigue. the same officials say the president has been responding well to an anti viral drug and his condition will only improve. we saw president biden on camera. pool cameras were allowed to go in the south auditorium and get
1:02 pm
a shot of the president as he was conducting a meeting with his economic team. the team was focused on lowering gas prices. the president gave a thumbs up when they asked about his condition. we saw the president cough a little bit. seemed to reach for water and also seemed to get a cough drop. you can see him trying to unwrap one thing, something all of us are doing while trying to fight illness. the white house going to the extremes showing that the president is conducting business of the nation. there's photos showing him working the phones from the residence as well as wearing a mask. what we're waiting to find out is when the president won't need to isolate and how much it will impact his schedule going forward. we know they scrubbed a trip to florida next week and the president's recovery could be fairly pass because of the anti-viral drug. the president's physician wrote a memo that said early use of paxlovid provides additional protection against severe disease. you will isolate and we will
1:03 pm
continue to monitor him closely during this common outpatient treatment regimen. so that is the message that we're hearing over and over again from the white house, that they believe the president is going to be okay, that he's still able to conduct business. we also heard from the national security council earlier today. has it impacted any of the national security chain of command and any of those decisions. the white house pushing back saying the president is able to continue the functions there. and also conducting foreign poll cyst. we heard the chinese sent a handwritten note wanting to wish him well. the president said it's a good day to be inside. it's 93 degrees at the white house and feels even hotter than that. neil? >> martha: you're young. why are you whining? >> i didn't whine. it's hot. >> neil: in all seriousness, have they explained why the president's own doctors and physicians hasn't been the one answering these questions? it again raises worries. how are they addressing it?
1:04 pm
>> you bring up a really good point. that's something that our colleagues will be asking about apartment the briefing. we've been hearing from the white house coronavirus coordinator but we have not been hearing from the president's doctor specifically. it's been the press secretary taking questions as opposed to the white house physician. that is a little bit surprising to me. the questions came up briefly yesterday. i think it's going to come up again today. you have to wonder why that is not necessarily the case. they've been putting out the memos in the morning. you and i are working tomorrow. we'll have an update tomorrow about what may have changed overnight. >> hopefully he will be whining less tomorrow. >> no tie tomorrow. >> neil: you've been very cool. thanks, mark. i want to go to dr. deborah birx, the former white house covid response coordinator who i'm told will be coming on, i swear.
1:05 pm
meantime, we have janice dean, meteorologist keeping track of the heat. janice, this is now effectively in the brutal stage. when it gets over 80, it approaches that. what are we looking at here? >> we're looking at really hot temperatures for the next few days and heavily populated areas like the northeast, neil. we're going to surpass the century mark especially sunday. we'll get a little break from the heat next week, but i think the temperatures will be remain very warm as we continue to go through the month of july and august. language range forecasts showing high pressure over us as well as the central u.s. there's heat alerts and warnings for millions of folks from the mid-atlantic all the way up to maine where temperatures are in the 90s. when you factor in the humidity, what it feels like when you go
1:06 pm
outside, your body can't hardly cool itself off when you have the heat indices over 100. you talk about record highs this time of year. we're in to exceptional temperatures in new jersey, philadelphia, new york, 98. boston, 94. it's not just the air temperature. it's the fact that we have humidity. it's really hard for people that are susceptible to heat-related illness to be outdoors a great length of time. the heat wave is on going. that is the heat deck right now. feeling over 100 for d.c., up to new york and boston. even bangor maine feels like 95. there's the forecast. saturday, it will come down a little bit. right back up and then a break from the heat tuesday and wednesday and thursday we're back in to the 90s again. so unfortunately we have to prepare for a long period of time of these really brutal temperatures. and then across the southwest in
1:07 pm
towards the central u.s., areas that typically see very warm temperatures this time of year, we're talking record heat. really it's been ongoing in some of these regions over 90 degrees. 100 degrees in joplin. 97 in memphis. 100 in little rock. dallas texas, you've had weeks of brutal temperatures. well over 100 degrees. it's just been persistent for these areas. i mean, the highs tomorrow, again a lot of 100s on the map here. we're not counting the humidity, which makes it dangerous. there's the northwest because you are in line next week for the heat. you can see seattle, portland, olympia, washington, areas that don't typically see these tips of temperatures. they get warm. when you're flirting with over 10 degrees in washington and oregon, it's serious. a lot of these places don't have air conditioning.
1:08 pm
you'll see cooling centers open for regions that don't typically see all of this heat for an extended period of time. >> neil: janice, a personal quell. you have multiple sclerosis and you never complain about it. but the heat is not good. how do you deal with that? >> you remain in air conditioning. thankful we have got bosses that understand that, right? you know what? ask my husband. he knows i complain a lot. >> neil: i don't think so. janice dean following off of this. and the nyu school of medicine associate professor joins us. great to catch up with you under these trying weather circumstances. what do you tell your patients and how they handle this? >> well, i mean, i mentioned just like our phones can
1:09 pm
malfunction, so can our brains and/or agains. the current see we have is our sweat. we can use that as a cooling system by making more or saving more of it and using our own ac if we don't have air conditioning. so the way you make more sweat is by drinking more fluids, by taking in more electrolytes. so what i tell patients to do is to stay hydrated, drinks more fluids even before the heat wave, have more fluid available, stock up. aside from -- you can also eat more vegetables, eat more fruits. have all of that there. pedialyte, you don't have to be a child. you can have pedialyte available so you can get enough electrolytes in, magnesium, things like that available. we talk about saving fluids so you don't lose sweat as easily. keep the blinds drawn. keep the shades drawn. if you have reflectors, put them hahn the windows so the light
1:10 pm
gets reflected so you don't have everything coming through the windows and heating up your home like a greenhouse effect. now isn't the time for all of that exercise. people that want to stay fit, it's a great idea. but now isn't the time for that. >> neil: finally a recommendation i can admire. you say no alcohol, more fruits, more veggies. oh, my god, what is this woman throwing at me. if this goes on -- -- if this goes on awhile here and people that don't stay hydrated, they can get worse. have you had patients coming in dealing with these kind of things? >> of course, i have. so i do sports medicine also. i see a lot of people with heat exhaustion. sometimes the symptoms are hard to recognize. sometimes they look like they're drunk but haven't been drinking. sometimes they can be nauseated or vomiting. i tell patients before the heat
1:11 pm
gets extreme, have a plan with somebody that you're checking in with them regularly, especially if you're older, if you're younger, if you have other medical conditions: if you're diabetic, for example, make sure to check your sugars regularly. you know, don't drink during that time. i know you might not like that one. but don't drink during that time. people might mistake you for being drunk when you have a high blood sugar. so these are things to be aware of. sometimes of heat stroke, people can little a little altered, nauseated. just think about the environment. so someone has cold skin in a very hot temperature. that doesn't make any sense. someone has dry skin when they should be sweating doesn't make sense. so these types of things, someone that looks red and not wearing sunscreen, that might be a reason to also call the doctor and plan accordingly. like if you're walking your pet
1:12 pm
or something, when it's not very blistering heat, when it's pretty dark. so things to plan for. >> martha: all right. the only thing that i like, i can skip the workout tonight as if. doctor, good seeing you. good advice. please be safe and cool this weekend yourself. dr. deborah birx with us, the former white house covid coordinator. author. dr. birx, great to have you back. how are you doing? >> great to be with you. >> neil: what do you do when you have a heat wave like this? at the same time, we have covid cases spiking. the two are not related, but they do make americans feel uncomfortable. and they do get them worried. what do you think? >> so i get up about 4:00 to 5:30 a.m. and i go out and to my exercising at first light when it's a little cooler. but you can still get your exercise in.
1:13 pm
that's what we're talking about with covid. modifying your routine when there's a spike if you need to remain covid free. >> neil: my exercising is getting up at that hour. that is a separate thing. you know about the president's condition right now. looks good. the second president in a row is dealing with this. what do you think thus far? >> i think what is really important is the sequence of events. and to every viewer over 70, this is a sequence of events that they need to be doing. proactive testing so they can test -- find their case immediately. know where their primary doctor is. a lot of americans don't have primary doctors. so the president has access to a primary doctor but in rural americans don't. so we need to ensure that the surges across the south where there's a lot of rural
1:14 pm
americans, they can test and get access to paxlovid like the president has. that is critical right now. it's life saving. doesn't matter if they're vaccinated or unvaccinated. if you have symptoms, the anti-viral will probably not work. >> neil: we have seen a spike in cases, most notably the president. you get that. but better than three million or so in the last few weeks in europe. china is seeing spikes in various regions on top of the heat wave. that's a separate issue. right now, spikes in these various variants. i'm wondering now with more states looking at cdc guidelines calling for masks or recommendations for masks, not outright orders, is it overdone?
1:15 pm
>> well, that's really important right now. you know who in your family who is vulnerable. it doesn't matter where you live. you need to get them tested. many people won't have symptoms. you may not have symptoms, but you may infect your grandmother. so test your grandmother. please, i ask you to find out where you can get paxlovid in your state or county. it's difficult. it doesn't help that the federal government has just put paxlovid in cvs and walgreen's when most towns only have a dollar store. find out where you can get in life-saving drug. you tonight have a lot of time. the heat will drive people indoors. we know with this virus being highly contagious, more people indoors will create a spreading of the virus. people don't mask indoors with their family members.
1:16 pm
that's where most of the spread is happening. truly, if you're over 70, if you have comorbidities, test right now. you can order free tests from the federal website. if you can't get free tests, please go and get tests. test your individuals over 70. please get them paxlovid. it will keep them from being in the hospital. >> neil: dr. birx, we're learning from the white house, the medical unit that it's identified and informed 17 close contacts of senior staff members that have had exposure to the president of the united states. that begins to beg the question, how in that contact tracing, what are you tracing and how far back are you tracing? last week the president was in saudi arabia, israel. he's been at a number of campaign events shaking a lot of hands, getting close to a lot of
1:17 pm
people. formally tested positive yesterday morning. i'm wondering how far back they go to look at contacts that he might have had? >> really the most important contacts are contacts that he had in the immediate 24 hours before he tested positive. going back 48 to 72 hours. anybody that he was in close contact with. the sixth piece of the cdc should have gotten rid of when we get the delta wave, people are getting infected with this b-5 variant even outside. so people that came in contact with him in the last 24 and 48 hours. certainly at the white house, nobody is masking anymore. people were probably exposed on his answer the port, cars, the airplanes and helicopters. all of those people need to be
1:18 pm
tested routinely. his wife, dr. jill biden, most likely her exposure occurred the night before he tested positive. so her within the next 24 to 48 hours. >> neil: real quickly, doctor, i wanted your take on the people that have been fully vaccinated and boosted and they're getting it. the 20% of americans might look at that and say why bother. what do you tell them? >> well, if you're in the middle of the wave, what will save you right now is paxlovid. once we get through this wave, you should get vaccinated and boosted because we to believe it will protect you, particularly if you're over 70. i knew these vaccines wouldn't protect against infection and we
1:19 pm
overplayed the vaccines and made people worry that it's not going to protect against severe disease and hospitalization. it will. let's be very clear. 50% of the people that died from the omicron surge were older and vaccinated. if you're unvaccinated right now, the key is testing and paxlovid. it's effective, it's a great anti-viral. really that is what will save your lives right now if you're over 70. if you look at the hospitalization, hospitalizations are rising steadily. new admissions particularly in those over 70. people talk about the fall. i'm worried about the south and rural america and our tribal nations that don't have access to testing from a primary physician like the president does. i hope coming out he will address these rural communities. >> neil: to your point, more
1:20 pm
people were dying every day before the vaccines than are today. i have no it do because of the vaccines. dr. birx, very good seeing you. the author of "silent invasion." let's go the white house. this event is still going on. we're getting an update on the president's condition at the white house. >> we've given you two letters from dr. o'connor. you've heard directly from him. look, we -- you've heard from the letter, that is hear -- you're hearing directly from the physician. i mean, that's hearing directly from -- in his words, you are hearing directly from dr. o'connor as i read out. i'm answering your colleague's questions here. so give me the second. so you heard directly from him. not only that you heard more, i would argue, easily argue, about
1:21 pm
a mild -- mild symptoms of a virus than any other president. we have -- the doctor and i were hear an hour fielding questions today, answering questions. we're going to commit to making sure you're hearing from dr. o'connor, from his daily report, detailed report from dr. o'connor. here's the thing. dr. ja is one of the foremost experts in this field when it comes to covid. he also has dealt with covid patients, he's clearly is running our covid response. and he is a medical doctor. he knows how this process works. again, we should feel good and very happy that the president is doing better. that he's improving. this is the president of the united states. he's improving and reacting well to the treatments and let's not
1:22 pm
forget we have the tools to treat this because of the work this this president has done. >> the point that you're making that dr. ja is a medical doctor, and we've got questions about his symptoms progressing. he had a fever last night. his cough is loss as opposed to dry -- >> he did not have a fever last night to make that clear. the doctor made that clear. 99.4 is not a fever. he was given tylenol. i should let dr. ja talk about this more. he's the medical doctor. he gave the tylenol for discomfort, which is not unusual if you have covid. many of you have had covid. we would argue that if we probably take a temperature of some people here, they might have a 99.4 degree fahrenheit temperature. that's not uncommon.
1:23 pm
i'll let the doctor speak to that more. >> let me -- >> neil: just another line of questioning from jacqui heinrich on why we're not hearing more from his personal physician rather than dr. ja who is speaking to reporters right now. we're told the doctor issued a letter details everything that he's seeing in the president, that he's getting better and still has this dry, loose cough. the line of questioning from jacqui, why are we not hearing this from the doctor himself. so we'll continue to monitor this. we're also monitoring other developments including stock market ending down on the week here. but up on the week as a whole. with the dow sliding today, a lot of this is back and forth. snap chat has snapped investors heart with their stock felling about 40%. down 77% year to date.
1:24 pm
that kind of had a spill over in technology stocks today even though they all had a good week, the nasdaq, where they reside. but for the week, all of the major market averages up. that's been a continuing trend here that encourages both. you don't want to overstate this. meantime, inflation is still front and center. you might not be seeing it when you go for gas at the station, but you are seeing it in your utility bills when your looking at the cost of natural gas that powers them going up. >> they're saying our power is going to go up again. it will be expensive. >> my last bill was almost $560.

>> we have some really good news. gas prices are coming down. in fact, gal prices have fallen every day this summer for 38 days in a row. >> neil: all right. president commenting on the big drop in gasoline prices. the fact of the matter is, as nice as that is and it is, unfortunately countering that what is happening with natural gas prices. neil, why should i care about them? chances are utility, the one that sends you your air conditioning bill is powered why natural gas or coal. it's soaring up 53%. so that could be a reason when you open your utility bill and you go what the heck is going on here? phil flynn knows. what's happening? >> neil, it's so hot for the first time in history, your
1:30 pm
wallet is melting. you don't have to be outside right now. we've seen incredible demand for every fuel. it's not just natural gas. it's everything that generating electricity has gone through the roof. even the price of coal. a couple years ago it was $40 a ton. it's up to $180 a ton. if you look at natural gas, u.s. production is struggling to keep up with demand. now we're the world's second largest exporter of natural gas. we've been trying to bail out europe. here in the u.s., it's the u.s. consumers that are really getting hit hard. you know, the poor people are paying over 17% of the weekly paycheck for energy expenditures. the highest since the 1970s. on this recent heat wave, prices have gone up so high that i am hearing that people are turning off their air conditioners, which is very dangerous for a
1:31 pm
lot of people because they can't afford the electric bill. it's really a serious situation. we really have to take steps in the future to keep natural gas prices lower. that means more production in the u.s. that's your best answer. >> neil: that doesn't seem to be imminent. i will be asking, this hurts whether temperatures outside are high or low. this is an issue that sticks around through the winter. you'll get some sticker shock, right? >> you bet ya. right now electricity prices year over year, they were already up 12% for electricity. this winter, they could be up as much as 20 or 25% if we get a cold winter. if you look at the inventories of natural gas and the inventories of heating oil, heating oil is like 20% below the five-year average. so if we get a cold winter, it's difficult the keep the prices
1:32 pm
under control. >> neil: and looking at the energy picture, bottom line, energy prices are high. and there's been a push on the part of the administration to veer us to wind and solar and all of that. the immediate fire, not quite literally but close to it with this heat wave, is now. is anything being done now that you think looks promising to deal with this? >> not for electricity prices. in fact, what we're hearing from the administration is that they're talking about more restrictive policies on methane emissions for natural gas. that will reduce the amount of rigs that can be personal in the permean basin. so this will mean less production and higher gasoline prices. they say buy an electric car or get solar panels.
1:33 pm
import them from china. the cost of solar panels are going up. so neil, there's not an easy answer unless you go back to the united states being one of the best oil producers and gas producers in the world and get back to that. then you can solve the other problems more efficiently. >> neil: i always believe and i know you and i chat about this so many

>> there's only one option. >> neil: how surreal? i've seen this probably a dozen times. a guy walks up on stage where lee zeldin, the republican gubernatorial candidate in new york is making remarks. nobody stops him. fortunately somebody does after he clearly tries to assault the congressman. everyone is all right. but the issue here is that the guy that went after him has sense been released. david lee miller has more on all
1:39 pm
of this. david lee, it gets weirder by the moment. >> that's the headline, neil. the man that allegedly attacked lee zeldin was released without bail as zeldin himself had predicted. the congressman running for governor in new york was speaking to supporters at a campaign rally about the cashless bail policy when he was attacked by a man because of those very policies would be set free six hours after his a rest. zeldin talked about bail reform. a man with a hardened plastic key chains approached the congressman. >> this is our last stand for new york. there's only one option. >> following the assault, zeldin tweeted "the attacker will be instantly released under new york state's laws."
1:40 pm
the man was released hours later under his own recognizance. the sheriff said that the man was not remanneded to custody and does not qualify for bail. pursuant to new york state's fail formed legislation. governor hochul condemned the attack on the congressman. zeldin back campaigning today described the attack. >> he had a weapon in his hand. had two holes where he had two fingers through the hands. had sharp dagger-like edges on it. and he was telling me you're done. >> the local sheriff's offices says the man is expected in court. >> neil: do we know if he had a beef with the congressman, what
1:41 pm
drove him to do this? >> there's no known mow till. the sheriff's office is saying this individual appearing to be intoxicated. he admitted to drinking. he said that he was also a veteran, although that has not yet been confirmed. there's a published record that he also had a difficult homeless and had some emotional problems, neil. >> neil: thanks, david. to ted williams now, d.c. attorney. former defense attorney. what do you make of this? >> it's chilling. i've been on here on numerous occasions trying to sound the alarm about weak bail laws. lee zeldin in new york was a victim of weak bail laws. this guy was charged with attempted assault in the second degree, this is considered a nonviolent felony. the judge in this case
1:42 pm
unfortunately, his hands were tied and they had to release the guy. what it says is somebody in albany, new york in the legislature, those politicians there are responsible for what happened to lee zeldin and they're also responsible for this man being released early on under these unfortunate circumstances. >> neil: you know, a lot of this reminded me of fans jumping up on stage when comedian dave schapelle was performing. that could have been quite tragic. he was later tackled and dealt with but he got up there. very different circumstances i know in japan with the former prime minister, abe, is speaking on behalf of a candidate. he's shot at from behind. people are caught off guard. he's dead. different issues, different countries, but a lot more of it. what's going on? >> well, again, with these weak
1:43 pm
bail laws out here, it is an encouragement of individuals to do the things that they do like this. i'm deeply concerned about politicians specifically during this political season. they're out there and very vulnerable. this guy just walk up to lee zeldin like he knew him. he had an open in his hand. this could have very well been sort of like you said, the japanese prime minister, abe, and what happened to him being shot and actually being killed there. so we have to take this serious. there needs to be changes in the system. >> neil: gets back to what you talked about. the extreme times where we live and people get violent about it. these type of issues are far and far between.
1:44 pm
there's enough of them that have a lot of people wondering, are we going back to the 60s here? what do you think is happening? >> it's very scary. there seems to be a complete metaphorphasis where we're headed back to the 60s. those were dangerous times that took place. and look, we all are very vulnerable out here. you and i talked about it a few weeks ago. we can be walking down the street and somebody walk up to us, we don't know if they're walking up to say hello or harm us, this is an unfortunate era. this is where we are in the country right now. we have to do something to change that. i think that we have to enact strong bail reform laws to act as a deterrent from these kinds of incidents. >> neil: you're right on all of the above. thanks, ted. good seeing you. sometimes though you don't know
1:45 pm
the shooter. what you do know, the innocent people that are shot and killed having nothing to do, anything with being in the wrong place at the wrong time like gianno caldwell's beautiful young brother christian that was killed june 24th, a 18-year-old with his whole life in front of him caught up something that he had nothing to do with. gianno caldwell is devoting his life to see what happened and why and to deal with this problem that is now out of control. gianno, very good to see you, my friend. >> thanks for having me. >> neil: gianno, you know this, you feel it. it's one thing to go after a congressman and he survives it and they're trying to find out what the guy is up to. your brother did nothing. he was caught in the middle of a crime wave that is still out of control. >> absolutely. i'm going to tell you this sunday makes one month since he
1:46 pm
was murdered. we still don't know who did it. and it's a tragedy that so many other people in this chicago area, chicagoland area, have very similar experiences. what i have realized since my brother was murdered and i have taken a deeper dive than i have any other time before, i realize that these soft on crime policies are a cancer to the organs of local government in chicago, whether it be the judiciary system whereas the chief justice of cook county implemented bail reform in 2017, where he's allowing criminals to walk free at no cost so they just commit a crime and they go out and commit another crime. they have no chase policies where they can't pursue a suspect without talking to their supervisor beforehand, whether they be running on foot, where they really can't chase a
1:47 pm
suspect or in their cars. or even the prosecutor's office that is refusing to prosecute cases. she dropped 25,000 felony cases including rape and murder. this is unacceptable, neil. the people in chicago are suffering and only suffering more because of the inaction that has taken place with the leaders of the city of chicago. now my family has been impacted by this great atrocity of policy. what do we do now? i continue to march for hope and pray that the people that murdered my little brother are found and brought to justice. i shed light on the policies that are getting more and more people murdered in chicago. that is my mission, that is my assignment from god that i never wanted. that's what i must do. >> neil: we showed that statistic of you speaking in chicago where crime is up 34% from last year. your brother sadly is part of that statistic. and yet there's been many since. it just defies any normal
1:48 pm
description where they can't get to the bottom of so many of these shootings. so many go unanswered. >> neil: last year was the deadliest year in chicago in a quarter of a century. you have 800 homicides just about. over 3,600 shootings just about that took place last year. and out of all of the crime that was committed in the city of chicago, only 12% of that crime led to an arrest. the criminals know that they have no worries. they don't fear being arrested or prosecuted. the police are demoralized, overwhelmed. and then there's some officers because there's a work slow down going on in the chicago police department where they have to do their job or get out of the job. there has to be account ability for specific officers as well. the city of chicago is a tragic place where no one is legitimately safe. even in the areas where we

believe when i was growing up, well, if it's in the nicer areas where people have money and they're white, they're not going to have any problems because the police are going to get on it. not true. that was a fallacy. no matter what your demographic is, color, race, political stance, doesn't matter. people are losing their lives in records and it must come to an end. it cannot come to an end. so i'm working with local elected officials now, having discussions, identifying what the policies that need to change and i'm going to spend a lot of time in springfield working with the legislators to ensure that my brother's legacy means something so folks lives can be saved. >> neil: gianno, words escape me a lot of times. we can only suffer so long. i know you have a wonderful family. you're always looking after them and particularly your brother. i remember christian around a father's day weekend if memory serves me. he had written you that you were
1:50 pm
a father figure to him. how is the family doing right now? >> they're terrible, neil, to be honest. they're really terrible. nobody is able to function in a way that they used to of course. but folks are looking at me as the leader of the family to continue to push and get as much media exposure on this case and hopefully that makes a difference. so i'm the leader of my family. i support them and i'll continue to support them and just for our viewers, please, please, keep me in your prayers, keep my family in your prayers. if you know anything about what happened june 24th, there's a tipline right there on the screen. if you don't want to reach out to the police, you can reach out to me on social media at giannocaldwell on twitter and facebook. we just want justice. there's so many others like the 5-year-old baby girl that was murdered at the wrong place at the wrong time in the back seat

speak a lot of people refuse to talk to congress or congressional investigators, but steve bannon with both counts of doing so and could serve some jail time for doing so, we'll look at this and the committee and where all of it stands. >> good afternoon, neil, well the committee wants the evidence of that was presented last night to merit. it wants to sidetrack the white house bid by president trump. >> every american must consider this and a president who is willing to make the choices, donald trump made during the violence of january 6th, ever be trusted with any position of authority in our great nation. speak of the committee showed how the president failed to act to curb the violence even though family members and age implored him to do so.

1:57 pm
>> just looking at some of your viewers statement from chairman betty thompson and liz cheney in the situation, the conviction of steve bannon is the victory of law and the affirmation of the committee's work. steve bannon chose allegiance to donald trump with the law, no one is above the law. what do you think? >> this shows the commitment to continue to go to the mat. there is another figure out there, another thing that will happen here. and also held in contempt of congress that shows just how aware they are. you have to go back to the 1970s. that's pretty compelling. now remember that there are other figures that they did not go to the match with when it pertains to attempt of congress. mark meadows this one, and the department of justice has not decided to prosecute the former aide there and something that
1:58 pm
came out yesterday where the committee members alluded to the fact that they do not want to get bogged down on his guys on attempt of congress. even if steve bannon goes to jail, that is not necessary mean that they are getting on the track here. that committee is going to expire at the end of this congress. so there is not a lot of benefit and going down that route. so looking at the other evidence coming in, this is what liz cheney is saying. they get some information in august and restart through september. august is always the strangest political month. you have heard me say this before, beware the eyes of august. i do not put it past them to have the snack well a few times before. >> they are talking several more hearings, and well in the fall, may be push us up to the midterm, what are you hearing? >> certainly republicans would

say that this is all political, look, they are trying to make president trump look bad, make republicans look bad right before the midterms. if the former president in fact does announce the bid before the midterms come in the maybe the democrats get the slight upper ground, they can make all of these republicans starting answer, why are you supporting the former president? a look at some of the evidence coming out from the committee. >> judge jeanine: is there any little noticeable perception that could be indenting the popularity? this is all about hurting him and nothing about the constitutional crisis today, the democrats have been fielding nests, but you know, the former president just wondering about the impact. >> there are a couple of polls with some mixed results. and dipping below 50 percent on
