>> carley: the los angeles police department banning the flag from the public lobbies after receiving a complaint saying it represent violent views. you're watching "fox and friends first"s, i'm carli lloyd. towed a community complaint of the flag. i directed to have the flag taken down. the u.s. flag should proudly be displayed when possible.
2:01 am
>> todd: -- says this just emboldened the left. >> usually when people make a complaint like that, they do not like the police. for the chief to take it down, symbolizes hard work policemen make and show that blue line is separating the darkness and chaos. it would be nice if they stood up and explained more, because moral is in the gutter, it is a heart retention rate. executives are not standing up for them. >> carley: one person makes a complaint and you have the lapd chief siding with that person. i read this minutes before i read this headline, one of the
2:02 am
wild-card games were on tv. it's been six or seven years since the national anthem controversy started. so glad there is not controversy anymore and it sounds like anti-police c sentiment has dissipated. this attack is from inside the house. lapd chief michael moore, if he thinks the same blue line flag has been taken over by extremist, he's out of touch with police officers, in his own department or police community in general. majority of people see that for what it is, symbol of what police do everyday putting their lives on the line to protect and serve their communities. >> todd: we see this time and
2:03 am
time again, let one individual ruin it for everybody. we see this time and time again, somebody reaches upper echelon of the military, police, mayor's office, they abandon the people that got them there, he's abandoning the people under him for some random complaint because he probably has bigger goals in the future of politics. if you are running for politics in l.a., that probably gets you some points. joseph said when you go to a funeral, you see people of all races and you see officers of all races, wearing that thin blue line flag, when i do my event with cops, with the organization that helps survivors of slain police officers, it is not just white people, it is all races, all grieving and coming together and
2:04 am
that is what the thin blue line symbol keptses. >> carley: you think -- what purpose does this serve? do you think that will make police feel and the department feel more together, more like leadership is standing behind them? it's just one of those really unfortunate things and to your point about leadership making decisions that are self-serving. i was listening to shannon bream interview with cornelle west on "fox news sunday," and he says people are rewarded for being echos, you have to be inseer about who you are. people pose and posture to the top and never know who they are, this decision is posing and posturing to the top and not knowing who they are or the people putting them in leadership looking up to them to
2:05 am
guide them and unfortunately, it seems like i don't think lapd leadership has their back. >> todd: lapd looking to retire 200 retired officers to combat staffing shortage. the department expects 600 officers to resign or leave the next year. next academy class to graduate, not a typo, just 22 recruits in this new class, total number of officers in the lapd has been on the decline with current staff sitting at less than 1000 of ros, down from 10,000 to 9240. is this all a result of the chief abandoning the thin whether you line? no, this was before that. they do not get paid, they do not have the respect of the public, now because of actions
2:06 am
like this and defund the police movement, you don't get respect and if you do your job, you are under scrutiny, if you make one error in a split-second decision, your family is ruined and you're bankrupt. >> carley: rinse and repeat and still going on. flight attendants are talking about a loophole to smuggle fentanyl, this is an insane story coming up. >> todd: it is wild. the medical community admitting covid deaths are being miscountry. is it too late? we'll ask an infectious disease physician next. ♪i feel free to bare my skin♪ ♪yeah, that's all me♪ ♪nothing and me go hand in hand♪

people saw this and got concerned. what do you think about this report? >> this virus continues to evolve. the xbb.15 has that ability. it can get around some of the -- death are reduced if you're vaccinated, high-risk person that is boosted. this is what we expect this virus to do, it is not cause for alarm. this is now something anybody can get because this virus has evolved so much. >> carley: you think it is a good idea to get vaccinated? >> yes, i think get vaccinated and somebody that is high risk should get boosted, people not boosted have not been given pax. >> carley: what about the thought there may be connection

2:14 am
everyday, that would be 150,000 a year, she says are these people dying of covid or with covid? some people are saying it is great she is coming to this conclusion, but late to the party. >> it will take time to sift through the numbers. the argument is after omicron because the dominant, there were more infection, people getting routinely tested and they are there for something else. that is hard to deal with and sift through. there are people testing positive for covid, trying to change the metric so they are better able to pick up cases due to covid versus incidental cases. i suspect there will be shifting in the numbers and it is
2:15 am
important to talk about it, we are in an okay place when it comes to decoupling cases because of the science. >> carley: thank you for joining us, we appreciate it. todd, to you. >> todd: a brazen new york city robbery caught on camera, a man snatches a woman's cell phone from her hands and walk out. wait until you hear what happens when she tried to confront him. and a business owner says homeless people are scaring away customers, wait until you hear what he's doing to solve the problem. at adp, we understand business today looks nothing like it did yesterday. while it's more unpredictable, its possibilities are endless. from paying your people from anywhere to supporting your talent everywhere, we use data driven insights to design hr solutions and services to help businesses of all size work smarter today.

and we know the latter is not going to happen. classified documents at three separate locations for six years to this point. right now a sitting president likely going to announce he was going to run again in joe biden. this makes the swamp look like the mediterranean. peter doocy pressed karine jean-pierre on the visitor log for the house in wilmington. joe biden has been in delaware for nearly 200 days, 61 weekends of presidency in delaware since becoming president and the press secretary said we've been transparent, we are asking about the delaware log. who has been going in and out of a crime scene, particularly where the president is now and documenting found throughout

this house including next to his corvette. this is where we're at right now. this is bad for the president and he gets a special counsel and that could go in any direction based on what they find in these ump dos if they pertain to ukraine or china, todd. >> todd: why answer like that when anybody with half a brain knows there are going to be more documents coming out this week, that is how silly confident they are and makes no sense. reuters calling this a political black eye, the document scandal. where do you fall on this? speed bump or brick wall? >> joe: well, again, depends what the documents contain, classified documents, why were they placed in washington and in
2:35 am
wilmington, right? i think it depends on what is there. who decided to look for these documents now, right before biden is about to announce he is running for reelection. there has to be something in there where biden says, i can't run again because of xyz. we'll see. we have donald trump, likely the front-runner if it is not ron himes and joe biden, both have spe special counsel investigating them and that will hinder their messaging in 2023 and campaigns don't happen in one year, they are basically two years and special counsel, if you remember with bob mueller can go on for years. here we are, welcome to the united states of america, everybody. >> carley: two special counsel

2:38 am
adams says the large numbers are putting a strain on the city's resources and he's demanding federal help. >> this is a federal crisis, new york can't take more, pointing the finger at national government, this is a national problem. >> maybe governor abbott move to show how other cities are dealing with massive numbers, maybe it worked, adams is saying biden administration needs to play a more active role in securing the border. >> todd: you spoke to robertalmonte. ing >> right before president biden came, the city was cleaned up under the order of the white house to give el paso the nice look. mayor adams going down there got

2:56 am
biden center. what are you honing in on this morning and where do do you thik this investigation is going? >> yeah. i'm honing in on two things. it's good to be with you this morning carley and todd. i think one the statement on thursday that the search had been completed, that from the press secretary proves to be a lie and they were, you know, telling us hopeful statement instead of the truth. but what i'm really looking at is if you look at the timeline, this was a -- originally a curated narrative that suggested that these -- they were moving out of the penn biden center. that these were encountered in that move. i don't think -- they were searching for something and now that i'm looking at the timeline of how it's rolling out and now they have lost control of the narrative. when it broke, the story, they thought they could explain it away. they throughout is nothing to see here. and now it is just this everrolling revealing story about how these documents were
2:57 am
appear to be strewn hither, fifther and yawn during joe biden's move as vice president. really surprising. where the investigation is going, carley, i think rob hur is going to try to figure out whether this was an inned a investor tent misplacement as we were going told or whether a crime has been committed. ultimately a sitting president can't be charged there may be statute of limitations issues but this is a serious problem for the white house. >> todd: we're all going to become intermittently familiar with the phrase chain of custody over the next weeks and months. what i'm honing in on is some of these documents are about ukraine. you all recall that hunter biden had $83,000 job with. [buzzer] ma. ukrainian energy company. we had reports that hunter biden lived in this home. a lot of coincidences here, matt. what do you make of them all? >> yeah, todd.
2:58 am
that's very inciteful. what i would say is that the content of these documents matter dramatically as to whether they were unintentional misplacement outside of a secure facility or to be shared. remember, david petraeus got in a lot of trouble for sharing classified information with someone that didn't have clearance. that is something that i think is drilling as to what is is the contents of this these documents? >> carley: feels like the popular opinion when all is said and done neither president biden or former president trump are going to face any sort of legal ramifications for this or be indicted whatsoever. one within a sells out the other. but if regular american mishandled classified documents, the outcome would be much different. how do you feel about that? >> it's true.
2:59 am
carley, one of the problems we have a system that no one is above the law but we do see these examtion where it appears that people do get away at the highest levels with things that their employees and underlings would never get away with. we're going to watch, i think, whether or not these two special counsels coordinate, talk about the law, what the law should be and how to apply it to these facts because ultimately. it's the same exact statutes. and i thought the donald trump case is actually more sympathetic because as a president he had the ability to declassify documents which special counsel jack smith is going to have to consider. in the other case of president biden, when he was vice president, he had no ability to declassify documents. >> todd: let's keep in mind these documents were pretty secure in mar-a-lago, secret service there. not so much over there throughout delaware. >> carley: a box in your garage next to your car, not secure. >> a locked garage.
