10:06 am
highway road and make people who question her seem as they are partisan hacks and a comfortable role for hillary clinton and that's the way she dealt with. >> clinton so- called machine and they have pushed back strongly. you think it will work? >> i think benghazi will stay in the news with the new house probe and republicans have to be careful not to be too partisan. and no doubt about it benghazi is a political liability for hillary clinton. and it happen on her watch. trey gowdy who heads the new investigation hinted strongly that hillary clinton will come to capitol hill and testify and asking for her. there will be a lot of theater here and there is a message machine going on. hillary clinton will run for president and republicans are talking about benghazi. >> in her book she said there is

what changed your opinion of eric shinseki you had confidence and what made the difference in your mind? >> that was our next guest who got the first question in an unscheduled new's conference where the president announced
10:16 am
the resignation of eric shinseki. joining me is leo. a big news day and big question for you for the president off of the bat. his answer was what changed his mind is eric shinseki himself. what did you make of the president's answer. >> reporter: i thought that was interesting. the president said a week ago said he had confident in the secretary in the last few days and eric shinseki said he could not manage the department and it was a distraction and swayed the president's opinion. >> in the improvementu new's conference you don't get too much of a follow-up. what questions would you ask him? what should we all be asking? >> reporter: i think my colleagues did a good job. what happens next for the
10:17 am
department. you have an acting secretary with twloe months experience and has a good resume but not familiar with the bureaucracy of the va has secretary shinseki was. veterans are saying it is a good first step and a positive moment. but they are concerned about what this means and whether or not the inherent problems will be fecesed. >> do you think they would be? as you reported. veteran affairs issues came up a bit. >> it was talking about the issues he was aware of. >> all with a simple mission to cut the back logand deliver your benefits sooner. the leadership and resources we are providing this time means that we are going to do it. that is our mission and we'll make it happen.
10:18 am
(applause) so that was august 2009. and it has been several years still and do you think that there is something different about this time or a same old, same old and people are talking about fixing the issues and in the end of the day they continue? >> it is not something that reaches public intchlt they don't usually follow the issues and suddenly focused on the va and what the failings have been. we'll so if that translates you in to more results. it is reducing the number of homeless veterans and this care issue is not a issue for the va and something that his administration hasn't been able to tackle so far. it is difficult to challenge
10:19 am
and why can't we fix this? we mentioned that the va has more than 300,000 employees. and there is a lot of big businesses that have to get fixed and how would you explain why it is insurmountable. and why they look at it with the big guys and we are not sure how. >> there is a lot of issues and i am not sure it is easily fixed. if i could we would have done. that and as you said, it is it a gigantic bureaucracy. i don't think americans realize how big it is. and the va said last year, and this is not the matter of fixing 1 or 2 hospitals. but thousands of medical faces and a lot of them operate
10:20 am
independently. there are institutional barriers to fixing it from dc when you are talking about problems in phoenix and houston and minnesota. >> we are looking forward to finding out what is next in fixing it. >> we appreciate it and thank you for joining us. we look forward to having you back. >> any time. >> undocumented immigrants are crowding in a station in arizona. they are men and women and children in texas. authorities do not have the resources to deal with that. will clark picks up the story from los angeles. it is unbelievable. that's right, eric. they are spreading out all over the counsel row and some tell the local affiliate they are going to texas and maryland. and this week federal
10:21 am
authorities detained the illegal immigrants in south texas. border officials say that can't handle the surge. and so ice flew them to el paso and tusson and that is simply dropped off with the bus station. >> it is going to another country. it is it another country, not arizona. and they picked the wrong country. if they are here illegally why are they coming to arizona? >> federal authorities said they are not putting them in detension center. they are not criminals. and so mexico will not take them and that takes the deportation process lengthy and eric, they are supposed to report to local ice offices and where ever they end up. and how many will do that is
10:22 am
anybody's guess? sounds astounding. thank you so much. >> a new arrest in the boston marathon bombing probe. and your mother told you to wash your hands with soap to stay healthy. we have that next. what if a photo were more than a memory? what if it were more than something to share? what if a photo could build that shelf you've always wanted? or fix a leaky faucet? or even give you your saturday back? the new snapfix app revolutionizes local service.

not so with internet from the phone company. i would email the phone company to inquire as to why they have shortchanged these customers. but that would require wifi. switch to comcast business internet and get two wifi networks included. comcast business built for business. there is a new arrest tied to the boston marathon bombing and the suspects knew they were trying to track him down. >> a cab driver is the latest person a cowed of hindering the investigation of the boston bombing. khairullozhon mar nov, he had
10:26 am
dinner with the brothers and instead of contacting police he tried to call joe who was on the run. he tried to hide his relationship with the brothers and deleted information and lied to investigators and charged with falsifying and destroying roars and three counts of making a false statement. prosecutors said a matanov a citizen of kiris stan was particularly close to tammarlin. and they trained like and praise the mujah-hah dean. he was not ahead of time and faces 40 years in prison and
10:27 am
some say he is have called. >> and can you imagine going without shampoo and soap and conditioner for one month. our next guest did that voluntarily a new companiouses bacteria to improve your skin. it is a lot of stories we have seen questioning the antibakt back soap and the chemicalses. the fda is giving companies until december of this year to prove they are affective as advertised. and the governor was so concerned about a chemical, just days ago, he banned them outright in the state of minnesota. and as of january 2017, antibacteria soaps will not be
10:28 am
sold in minnesota. that being said, could you go soap free for a month and what are the alternatives. we'll talk to julia scott who detailed her experience. and i want to get your experience in the trial and it was your attention to go soap free for a month, why? >> soap free and sham pee and teed onnerant free. i think it got crazy. because i believe in immersive journalism. i came across the company in cam bridge, massachusetts that is now selling a pro biotic body spray for your skin makes your skin feel healthier and hydrated by using live bacteria and i thought i could either report on this like i normally do or try it out. >> so what happened? >> well, what happened was my
10:29 am
hair got greasy because i was not using shampoo and three month water rinse showered and followed by spraying myself with the bacteria and my skin did grow hydrated and my, hormonally brake outs cleared up. i can't attribute that to the product, first it is it a fact that didn't use soap on my face for the first time in my life, but it did give me pause. >> julia, i have to confess. i am one of those girls whose medicine cabinets are full of products and i am doing research on the different products. how did it affect the way you live now. going through that experience, this is a personal question. did you smell? were people like oh, she is not showering and using a bacteria
10:30 am
spray. did they not want to hang out with you. >> i will say jenna, if you want to know who your real friends are, ask them to smell you after 28 days of going without a shower and be honest. >> what did they say. >> they said i smelled. some people were on the other side of the rom when they said i didn't. some people said i did smell like onions and other times pungent marijuana. and i have gone 33 years without wanting to know what i smell like and now i am using a fragrance free deoder apt. and no soap except under my arms and not using the products anymore. >> that got my attention. there is a lot of controversy.
10:31 am
and that has going on for four years now. and if we don't use them, what is out there. is this trend this bacteria spray. that is a trend that is growing and could reach mass market? >> something that is interesting is that we might be looking at a day, not too far in the future, where we could be replacing our antibiotic skin treatments with probiotic. there are cosmetics and surely more to come. and the ambition of the company and others like it, develop drugs that termatologist can prescribe for our skin. they will be more effective because they will have more access to our sophisticated skin microbial science and tailor
10:32 am
them to the to the pribt in the way one size fits all treatments haven't been able to do. >> a lot of credit and look forward to what you do next. and you are welcome in new york city shower or not. whatever. >> thank you. and great to see you. we'll be right back with more happening now. ñ

10:34 am
10:35 am
>> fox news alert. new reaction coming from capitol hill on the resignation of
10:36 am
secretary eric shinseki. mike? >> reporter: the reaction to the resignation is a necessary first step and it is more than just one man. >> a good man was taken out by a bureaucratic agency of folks that would not tell him the true. i am sad for secretary shinseki. because his honorable service to the country should be saluted. jeeshgs chairman miller grilled three va officials wednesday. both democrats and republicans seem to be frustrated by a lack of urgency and clear answers from the va. the panel's top democrat said there is plenty of work ahead. >> just by the secretary resigning doesn't mean the issue went away. there is accountability issues and we'll move forward to hold
10:37 am
those other responsible. >> reporter: they talked about the final straw. >> for me reading the inspector general's report saying that not only is there ares of phoenix but 40 other facilities and it is widespread and the discussion was about the secretary and not about the vets. >> i have respect for general shinseki and his service. and i am a captain and a major. and i have tremendous respect for four stars temperature was not a resource. it was a leadership problem and the he made the right decision. >> there was great respect for shinseki's years serving the country. >> our vets deserve better. >> the media storm continues to boil over for the va scandal and some are asking how long?
10:38 am
especially sips shinseki reseens. much of the media attention will go with him and vets will have lousy care. and another tweet, media, shinseki's resignation is not your cue to assume the problems in the va are fixed and you can lose intchlt joining us is a fox immediatia. >> we were on the air when the president made his statement and so what do you make of the comments and you think it is it a risk now that shinseki it will not get the same attention. >> reporter: they took a nerve. i have been embarrassed as the story unfolded and discovered by the arizona republic and lying and cover up and secret weighting list and that the
10:39 am
beltway press turned it when is shinseki going and why doesn't obama fire him? and that is a political game and president has to be appearing to do something about the scandal but it doesn't solve the problems. >> what dow think that the risk that the media moves on too quickly? >> i think it is a real risk. the new york times has a good piece of reporting and a shortage of doctors. and these investigating what is going on in each state and face 73s takes journalistic manpower. it is easy tore talk about the politics and now with our short attention spans, we'll talk about donald sterling. that would be a disgrace. the media have a responsibility
10:40 am
to stay on the story. it is it a life-and-death story for the people serving this country. >> what else do you have. >> this on media buzz and hillary clinton leaking that benghazi chapter. and the review of brian williams and hour long sit down with eric now den. >> it is a very interesting observation, howard. thank you so much. >> have a good weekend. >> turning to obama care 150 million or so get insurance from our employers. >> reporter: across the political spectrum, analyst say 80 or 90 percent of the employer- provided insurance, main stay of american health care're coverage will disappear
10:41 am
as obama care takes hold. less than ten percent will still have employer provided insurance ten years from now. les list. >> the companies will really be hard pressed to justify why and they spend the money by offering insurance through corporate plans when there is an alternative subsidized by the government. >> even it is 20 percent and getting employer provided insurance and get it ten years from now. and writing, that by 20, 25, few employers will provide health insurance. listen. >> it is going to be better for people. and they will have more choice and most people who get coverage through an employer, do not have choice. >> it is because the penamenty
10:42 am
for not offering insurance. $2,000 per worker is so much less than those poifding. >> typical coverage is $15,000. >> and to make it more attractive to workers. they can bump up their bay to get obama wear. >> the now, only the deficit. go ask your boss for a raise for obama care, they go yeah, right. >> and finding yourself getting cranky. >> me? sometimes. >> and if anyone of us are being

10:49 am
getting good exercise and getting enough sleep. that may help in our thinking of others. >> dr. normal vincent peel wrote. >> it is important to keep a positive outlook. and doit and exercise, all of those things, they have shown time and time again, when we reduce stress in our lives. we get rid of the things we are talking about and the negative health consequences. and negative people make positive people sick. if you see a negative person, run like hell. so said our boss. that is true. thank you. >> and could this fish and others like it takedown an american industry? >> the race against time to stop

10:54 am
fish, the asian carp fish from reaching here at the great lakes. so far officials have tried water canons, chemical toxins and now electric fishing to catch, kill and scare off this invasive fish, that can grow as long as five feet and weighs as much as 100 pounds. the underwater electric barriers just outside the city have worked fairly well at keeping the fish at bay, but even those have allowed a few of the carp north of that border. now a group of mayors, along with others, they are pushing for an $18 billion plan to cut off lake michigan from chicago's water ways, with permanent barriers. they say it's their best shot at protecting the great lakes. >> it's not in expensive, but it's a solution. the risk, of course, of not doing it is that we have a multibillion dollar sports fishing and tourism industry that would be devastated here in the great lakes.
10:55 am
>> reporter: critics of that 25-year plan say it's too expensive, too slow and it isn't guaranteed to keep the asian carp from reaching the great lakes. there's no plan for congress to tai take action and any decision is said to be years away. >> it's like they're zapping them. >> yeah, wow. the first defined cause to step down. the job of fixing the broken va system now is just beginning. coming up, we'll have new reaction from washington -- alen plus -- ue pat i'm good.chlps pr ent the urge to smoke all day long. help prevent your cravings with nicoderm cq.

10:57 am
i think he will miss hanging out with all of you, including the gooirs in the front row. but, jay has become one of my closest friends and is a great press secretary and a great advisor, he's got good judgment, he has a good temperament and he's got a good heart. and i'm going to miss him a lot. i will continue to rely on him as a friend and advisor, after he leaveses to spend as mitch of the summer as he can with his kids before he decides what's next for him, whatever it is, i know he's going to be outstanding at it. of course that meant i had to make a decision, which is who succeeds jay and we have got enormous talent around here. but i have decided that we're going to put in this slot
10:58 am
somebody who is also a friend and advisor. so today, the flack jacket is officially passed to a new generation, mr. josh hurst. josh is the coach's son from kansas city, he still roots for the royals, i guess. as you know, his name describes his demeanor. josh is an ernest guy, and you can't find just a nicer individual, even outside of washington. the country of course knows him for his golden voice and tones on west wing week and the biggest viral internet hit since between two ferns. but josh and i have and
10:59 am
incredible history going all the way back to the iowa caucuses. josh was my iowa communications director. and even when he was in that role, you would find him spending an extra hour or two helping young staffers make phone calls or knock on doors, there was no task that was too small, no detail too unimportant for josh to attend to. at the white house, he's been a mentor to many of the young people here, who i know are thrilled for him today. he is of sound judgment and great temperament, he is honest and full of integrity, i'm sure you will at some point get frustrated with him as well. but it's going to be hard because he's a straight shooter and a great guy. so my request is that be nice to jay on his farewell tour, and be nice to josh during his
11:00 am
initiation with i'm sure will last maybe two days. or perhaps two questions. we're going to let him hang around a little bit to milk it for all it's worth. all right? thank you, guys. >> well this is a fox news alert, big day going on at the white house today t president now back in the briefing room, saying that jay carney who's been his spokesperson for the last 3 1/2 years is effectively resigning, you could say jay carney has had a really -- peppered with questions, reporters hammering him yet before shinseki ended up resigning earlier today. the president back in the briefing room announcing that jay carney is going to be leaving his post. he said that he was great because he had a reporter's perspectiv h
