macy's thanksgiving day parade. we expect a nice day. temperatures a little bit on the chilly side. we had a nor'easter move from the northeast. we're not looking at too much in the way of precipitation. however it is a chilly day. current wind chill temperatures in the 20's. 28 degrees is what it feels like. as far as the parade goes, we're expecting six new balloons. we're looking at five new floats that will be marching in the parade. that is in addition to marching bands, cheerleaders, dancers, singers and clowns that will be joining us. the temperature when the parade starts should be about 35 degrees. factor in the wind chill and it should feel like the low 30's out here. in new york city we had hundreds of thousands of people show up last night because balloons are blown up. they are going to be flying. the winds will not be an issue today.
sometimes you hear winds can be a concern gusting over 30 miles an hour. weather conditions across the rest of the country, not bad. a relatively quiet thanksgiving day for many americans. we did have a clipper system move through portions of the midwest. that system is gone. behind it you're looking at temperatures that are chilly. 20 for chicago. teens for the city of fargo. out west across parts of the rockies, especially the northern rockies, that's where you could be looking at areas of snow. overall take a look at this weather picture. sunny conditions across parts of the south and also the southwest. a quiet thanksgiving day, something to be thankful for. let's head back to the studios. >> thanks, maria. >> everybody today is on the road and you want the weather to be looking good for -- >> 3,000 flights canceled yesterday. unbelievable the amount of people that were hampered by that big storm yesterday. favorite balloon? >> spiderman or --
>> sponge bob is awesome. >> i live right where the balloons are blown up. it happens where i live. the day before thanksgiving about 300,000 people come up there, and it is one of the worst days to live right there. but you get to see all the balloons and sponge bob square pants, held down by a net. >> can't wait until he gets to fly. >> he wants to be let loose. >> a lot big stores open tonight. you've eaten all the turkey, hung out with the family and maybe you want to get up and go to a store. now more and more retailers are getting on to the band wagon of opening their doors on thanksgiving day. >> we've got a list of 14 major retailers that are open if you're one of those folks that as soon as the pie has settled you're ready to hit the retailers. target, macy's, kohl's, j.c. penney's, best buy, toys 'r' us. and the list goes on. >> it was just a couple of years ago when the first big department store decided to be open on thursday and so many have come in line right after. some of them are saying
we're not going to do this. some who are not going to be open, the american girl store, barnes & noble, bed, bath and beyond and dillard's. dillard's made a point to say we are not going to be open. >> they basically said we think this is going to make our employees feel very valued. they're going to be better employees to us. treat the customers better. wield the spokesperson for dillard's -- we had the spokesperson for dillard's on yesterday. this is what she had to say. >> this is the right thing to do for them, allowing them this time off with their families on this special day to take a breather before things get really busy. we just believe that if we honor our associates, in the long run they will honor our customers as well. >> some retailers on the other end are saying thanksgiving is falling late this year, which always shortens their season because black friday being the busiest shopping day of the year, if that falls late in november that shortens their peak time.
every year that thanksgiving falls late, they're praying it's going to be a good year. >> are your parents open today? >> they're not. >> tomorrow will be -- >> you spend all day with the family and get the in laws in -- by the way, we have great tips on how to survive that later on in the show this morning. but you're crammed in there, cabin fever all day. i know the feeling. when i was growing up just want to get out of the house a little bit. >> a lot of places are going to be open. there's also some states that are saying maybe we should put some rules in place and set some laws up. an ohio congressman decided to introduce a bill. he thinks they should not be allowed to. but if they're going to, there should be some monetary incentive. so he says that he believes there should be triple pay. >> triple pay -- >> that's why a lot of people like to work on the
holidays. double pay. what is it? time and a half? >> time and a half. >> i'm looking at our camera guy. >> the congressman in ohio that wants to do this he basically met a woman and her mother last year, an 82-year-old mother, both of them had to work on the holiday and felt bad about it. he said can't there be just one day that's carved out of this consumer, imperialistic society that we're living in? >> there is one day. it's called christmas. >> on the other hand, people love black friday. it has become a family tradition. they map out which store they're going to hit. >> i think my wife hit target at midnight one year. i said really? >> door busters. >> there was no one there. she got all her shopping done. let's check in with
ainsley. have you done all your shopping? >> i've done a lot of it. while y'all are talking i'm offense at the computer. >> shopping. >> while you're at the mall you can shop for obamacare this year. black friday is the biggest shopping day of the year. malls in eight different states will see health care navigators handing out fliers trying to get people to enroll. certain websites will be pushing insurance. even though there are massive deals on other products, obamacare, however, will still come at a full price. extreme weather heading out this thanksgiving, which is great news. prayers are answered for that. flights are back on track and roads are cleared after a nasty nor'easter caused travel nightmares for millions of americans. nearly 700 flights were canceled and thousands more delayed. the snow, sleet and rain also causing hundreds of accidents across several state including about 200 accidents in new jersey and more than 100 in
connecticut. new overnight, passengers sent into panic mode when their plan is forced to make an emergency landing on the busiest travel day of the year. the united flight was heading to chicago when the indicator light went on in the cockpit. there was a problem with the landing gear. pretty scary. the pilot turned that plane around to wichita where it landed safely. the 42 people on board were able to get on another flight to their designation. a different kind of executive action making headlines at the white house this thanksgiving. >> today i'm taking an action fully within my legal authority, the same kind of action taken by democrats and republican presidents before me, to spare the lives of two turkeys. >> president obama pardoning the two turkeys. he names them mack and cheese. cheese took the top honor in an on-line poll. sasha and malia joined
their dads but they kept their distance from the turkeys. the turkeys will live out the remainder of their days at a place called turkey hill in virginia. and those are your headlines. >> they've got shuffle board there. lovely. new video out of los angeles. a massive mob of ferguson protesters filling the streets in los angeles. police arresting 100 people there. >> we're live in ferguson where protesters were a bit calmer last night. good morning, dominick. >> no major confrontations last night on what was a majorly cold evening. we saw just two arrests which is an extreme change in the environment we saw just two nights ago. i'm standing in front of the ferguson market and liquor. about an hour ago we had the national guard standing outside here. they moved off. nobody has come. i think that is an indication of how calm
things have become here. we can show you new video what happened precisely during the second looting of this store a rioters fled inside the building. they started a fire and believe it or not, a woman inside the store, a customer there, grabbed a carton of milk, poured it over the flames preventing the market from being burned down. we can show you what happened to businesses that were burned down during the rioting. one is a beauty parlor. another is an auto parts store. another is a title loan store. authorities here are gearing up for more protests on thanksgiving day because people are actually off. but you get a sense that it's going to be a much calmer, a much more tamer day or so ahead of us. one of the reasons for that is is it's going to remain cold. people also a sense of fatigue. we're going to see warmer weather over the weekend, about 54 degrees.
the sense is more people could come out and there could be more confrontation then. back to you guys. >> thanks, dominick. it is a stunning reversal. senator chuck schumer says his party blew it when it comes to obamacare. should the president be admitting the same? we'll see if that happens. >> it's a thanksgiving surprise. >> we have a winner. >> holiday fliers making off with a lot more than their bags. it's an awesome story. stick around. >> i want to wish my family and friends in new orleans, louisiana, happy thanksgiving and i'll be thanksgiving and i'll be home soon.how? with heat. unlike creams and rubs that mask the pain, thermacare has patented heat cells that penetrate deep to increase circulation and accelerate healing. let's review: heat, plus relief, plus healing, equals thermacare. the proof that it heals is you.

recession, for better wages and more jobs. not changes in health care. >> schumer's remarks on obamacare getting backlash from the left. but is there truth to his comments? let's ask republican strategist and former congressional candidate from georgia westin wallop. why is chuck schumer saying this now right before thanksgiving? >> i think thanksgiving, republican or democrat, we ought for thankful for anyone willing to break the script. i think on this specific issue this is what he feels like. i think there are people like senator schumer who want to be relevant beyond the president's political career and are willing to call a spade a spade now. >> anything out of a politicians mouth is always to me calculated. he's reading off notes as he's standing at the
national press club. he was on the front lines in 2008 and 2009 praising obamacare. what changed? >> i think he's one of the few people in washington -- i mean this -- who is willing to admit a mistake. i wish on my side of the aisle that speaker boehner would admit that last year it was probably a mistake not to allow a vote on the house floor on the senate version of the immigration bill. i think we probably would have never seen executive action from the preresident had speaker boehner done this. it is a healthier refresh for american politics for people at the top every once in a while to admit they might have made a mistake. >> he's really saying the president missed an opportunity to go after the recession straight on. when americans were calling for jobs, jobs, it was the president's mistake to be focusing on health care, health care; right? >> where senator schumer deserves some credit is he apparently hears from the american people even in the state of new york things that the president is not yet hearing. that is for six years the vast majority of the mimgdz
mimgdz -- middle class feels this administration is focused on small minorities. they spent six years spending a tremendous amount of energy to give health care coverage to nine million people. hundreds of millions of middle class, or tens of millions of middle class americans feel sort of lost and like they've got no support in the administration. >> nancy pelosi disagrees. she says there are 14 million reasons why chuck schumer is wrong on this now that they have insurance. thanks for getting up early with us. coming up, the president grants millions of illegals amnesty. now they may be taking our jobs. the incentive to hire them over americans that will have you furious. today we give thanks. it turns out it's not only good for your soul but it could save your life. dr. ratcliff is here to explain.

i guess some of the weather had something to do with that? >> reporter: yeah. dropped to 22. the forecast is saying it felt more like 16. that's an incentive for people not to come out. i want to show you the scene here. the corner of fluorescent and west ferguson. three cop cars at the moment, that's an extra car that appeared in the past hour. we're starting to see police move up and down. a bit more national guard. there were national guard on patrol here two hours ago. they vanished. i think that's a sign of really how things are going to be calm this thanksgiving morning. this is a mile long stretch that's been closed since monday when those hundreds of rioters stormed down here to start looting and burning down those buildings. it's going to be a while before any of those businesses actually open up again. no indication whatsoever just what the financial cost to these businesses is. not just the physical damage,
but of course tomorrow we have black friday. you guys were just talking about that. of course, a lot of business there. we're hearing about donations by the community being given to local businesses. i think it shows just how the people of ferguson really are now starting to come together with this. we've got this long weekend coming up. the weather is going to improve. that might bring people back out to the streets. that's something the authorities are very concerned about. back to you. >> thanks. warm up out there. gets get it over to ainsley earhart who is watching the other headlines this morning of the good morning. >> good morning. let's talk about the weather. extreme weather alert, a nor'easter caused travel nightmares for millions of americans. yesterday was the busiest travel day of the year. nearly 700 flights were canceled across the country. 4,000 more were delayed. the snow, sleet, all the rain, also causing hundreds of a stunning new report shows-
drones nearly hit commercial planes 25 times in the past six months. in one incident at jfk, a drone came within just one foot of slamming into the wing of a packed plane. the faa says that they do plan to propose regulations on drones before the end of the year. but it could be years before the rules are made final. talk about a special delivery, this texas mom had her newborn baby girl on the highway. the family ran into some serious road construction on the way to the hospital. they hit a road block and then the baby, who she couldn't wait. luckily officer robert scott was there to lend a hand, literally. >> get in, get my hand behind the head and just do a quick inspection, something not everybody is involved with with a life coming into the world. so it's very cool. >> thank goodness he was there. he is actually a former emt. a football feast on the

58 seconds on the clock, what am i thinking about? foreign markets. asian debt that recognizes the shift in the global economy. you know, the kind that capitalizes on diversity across the credit spectrum and gets exposure to frontier and emerging markets. if you convert 4-quarter p/e of the s&p 500, its yield is doing a lot better... if you've had to become your own investment expert, maybe it's time for bny mellon, a different kind of wealth manager ...and black swans are unpredictable. ♪soft holiday music ]♪ can you help me up?

there are issues in which the law too often feels as if it is being applied in a discriminatory fashion. >> long after this tragic story no longer sees this level of attention, the justice department will continue to stand with ferguson. we will continue the conversation this incident has sparked about the need for trust building between law enforcement officers and the communities that they serve. >> president obama and attorney general holder calling for social justice in ferguson, missouri. but why this case? why now? colonel allen west says it's all about scoring political points. good morning and thanks for being with us. >> good morning and howdy from college station, texas: happy thanksgiving. >> happy thanksgiving.
so what do you mean this is all about politics? >> well, there is no doubt that it is. as a matter of fact, when you look at all the other cases out there in the reverse, you can go right down to virginia where four black gang members brutally carjacked a reserve police officer by the name of captain kevin quick and killed him, but yet eric holder said the death penalty had to be taken off of that case. we saw out in spokane, washington where two black teen-agers bludgeoned to death a world war ii veteran. nothing said there. in oklahoma, the australian baseball player killed by two biracial teen-agers. the black teen-ager who shot a toddler in the face. nothing done there. and in new jersey, a person killed by a black man stating he was a jihaddist. no emphasis there. the georgia democratic party
used mailers to say if you voted for a republican person, you could possibly have a ferguson in the state of georgia. this is all about politics. >> you mentioned it being about politics. we saw al sharpton, many saying he was just agitating the situation and fanning the flames. but people said he was doing that to stay relevant, this is how he makes money. why does the president need to do this? why does eric holder need o do this? >> because for one thing, eric holder said that he is very fine with being an activist and this is their definition of social justice. this is once again being a part of the grievance industry and the race baiting industry that continues to keep the black community in a situation of economic servitude and also it is about lectural votes. the unfortunate thing is that no one is looking at the and the consequences of michael brown, his actions and what it resulted in, ragicly, his death. we really need a discussion in the black community about families, about families being together, about education, about
young black men having respect for authority and better jobs and education opportunities. the left, progressive socialist, barak obama, eric holier, they don't want that discussion. >> what also seemed ironic about this is on tuesday, the president spoke out in chicago about the situation going on in ferguson. the violence in chicago, we all know, there has been a huge problem there for quite some time. we have data between through october, there were 331 homicides, just from january to october of this year. january to september, 135 homicides between the ages of 17 to 25-year-olds. so what's the problem? why wasn't this mentioned at least for one or two sentences? >> because that does not fit the narrative. you know that. that does not help them in prom mull gating a message of victimhood. and jesse jackson lives in
chicago. where is he on that issue? barak obama is from chicago. where is he on this issue? speaking out about it. it does not help their political agenda whatsoever. so therefore, when you have a trayvon martin case, when you have a michael brown case, that falls into their lap and that gives them that opportunity instead of really focusing on what ails the inner city and the black community, which is the failure of progressive socialist policies. >> colonel, thank you so much for your time today and happy thanksgiving. >> thank you. happy thanksgiving. coming up on "fox & friends," a minneapolis man tried to board a plane to fight with isis and this morning he's walking free? plus, he grew up having to help support his family, and now he's a successful businessman giving back in a big way this thanksgiving. you'll meet him next ame's louis,
and i quit smoking with chantix. i had tried to do it in the past. i hadn't been successful. quitting smoking this time was different because i got a prescription for chantix. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. the fact that it reduced the urge to smoke helped me get that confidence that i could do it. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. some people had seizures while taking chantix. if you notice any of these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental health problems, which could get worse while taking chantix or history of seizures. don' take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you develop these, stop chantix and see your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have a history of heart or blood vessel problems, or develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix.
use caution when driving or operating machinery. common side effects include nausea, trouble sleeping and unusual dreams. i love myself as a non-smoker. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you. issue you don't need to think about the energy that makes our lives possible. because we do. we're exxonmobil... and powering the world responsibly is our job.

we have meghan trainer with us. she's well-known for her breakout single "all about that bass." good morning. how are you? >> i'm amazing. how are you doing? >> doing good. you're going to be participating in the parade and performing, correct? >> yeah. >> how is it going to go? what are you going to perform? are you going to be on a float? >> yeah, i'll be on a float. it's amazing. i'm with a bunch of kids. it will be adorable. i'm singing my new single. >> you've had incredible success. you made it to number one and beat out taylor swift. what does that feel like? >> incredible. i had no idea that would ever happen. but yeah, this year has been like christmas every single day. >> and your whole life, you always wanted to sing. did you have another career path in mind? >> it was only music forever. i was a song writer. then this song happened and i was signed and now i'm singing on floats at the macy's day parade. >> what's your song about?
what inspired it? >> all about the bass was about me loving my body, trying to get comfortable in my own skin and it just hit people in a personal place. it spread like fire. >> meghan, thank you for joining us this morning and congratulations on all that you've accomplished at such a young age. now back to the studio. >> thanks so much. no more christmas vacation. one massachusetts school district has been ban -- they just banned the term from every school calendar after one family's complaint. emotions ran high as parents packed the odd store yum, furious over the vote to change the name of the christmas vacation to holiday break. >> for us in all the town, we want christmas back on our school calendar if even one student or family is made to feel excluded, even one, we have not done right by them as a haunts. >> more than 4,000 people signed the petition urging the
committee to reconsider. school officials said too bad. elaine taylor is the resident behind that petition and she joins me now. elaine, nice to see you. welcome to the show. >> thank you. nice to be here. >> so what were you fighting for the other night in front of that school board? >> well, i was fighting for a voice to be heard. i was called right before i came here and a woman asked me, she said to me, you are the voice, you're our voice. at this school board meeting the other night, there was no consideration for the voice of those 4,241 signatures that we got. >> so one family complained about the term, christmas break. what was their overall complaint? >> it wasn't a complaint. it was a request. it was just a simple request asking if the school committee could change the name from christmas vacation to holiday break. they said that the name
christmas was archaic. with that one request, within just a little over a month, they put it on the school agenda and it was voted on and it was done. >> so you have some of these people now sort of jumping on the band wagon with this one family, saying well, the change to this calendar really symbolizes inclusiveness and diversity. it's not just christians celebrating this break. you have people of the jewish faith celebrating hanukkah. and you have many others celebrating this time of year. why just call it christmas break. that's what they say. what do you say to that? >> well, because it's about diversity. diversity is allowing people to be who they are. it's not to wipe them out. it's allowing them to celebrate and to express their faith. others should be allowed to do the same. it's not to make us clones so that nobody has their heritage, nobody has their traditions anymore. i'm here to hold to those
traditions. they're important to us. they're of value to us. it's what our town was built on and it's important. >> well, the school committee chairmanwoman disagrees with you about what your town is built on. i'll read her quote. she said supposedly our whole country is based on religious freedom. i certainly appreciate when people feel very strongly about their religious background, but as a school committee member, my job is to make decisions i believe are in the best interest of our town. what do you say to that? >> well, where is our freedom? where is our freedom in this? we're not having the freedom to express our faith in this. it's being censored out of the community. i feel all too often the elected officials feel like -- they're elected into position and forget who they serve. they serve the people of marshfield and where was the voice of these people, 4231 people, it wasn't heard at the school board meeting. >> you collected more than 4200
signatures right now. they did keep the word christmas on the day of christmas on the 25th. at this hour, they still have removed christmas break. what's the update? are they going to change their mind or sticking with it? >> well, right now they voted no. so the next thing that we could do is to vote no to them as they're trying to be elected again at the -- in may, when their elections come up. >> good luck to you and thank you for joining us this morning. happy thanksgiving to you and have a great christmas as well. >> thank you. thank you so much and it is a tradition, thanksgiving is also a tradition that's something that we hold dear to our hearts. thank you so much. >> absolutely. we appreciate you. coming up here, not sure what to do with your bird? we're talking turkey with the people who know all the tricks. butterball expert answering your questions next. there she is. first on this day in 1901, u.s. army war college was established.

cold. if you just kind of move it around, pick it up, you'll hear the juices and you're good to go. >> we had an e-mail that says i have heard you should cook the turkey breast facing down in the pan for the first hour. is this true? >> we don't recommend it. i'll tell you why. first of all, it doesn't change the flavor at all. we got so many requests through the year on that. i thought i got to try this out. it's really challenging to flip an 18-pound hot turkey out of the oven. it was going to be a whole family vacation thing gone awry. because you have to flip it while it's hot. it's not easy to do. >> another question says my wife uses a turkey bag. it cooks in half the time and stays juicy. are there any down sides of using the turkey bag and i wond better the bpas. >> they're absolutely safe. people love them.
it's a moist piece, so you're getting a moister approach, but not the crispy, golden skin. if you're okay with that, then that's great. but some people really want that crispy golden skin. you won't get that with the bag. >> this was a question i had. she wants to know do you suggest cooking the stuffing inside the turkey or separately? >> i cook it inside. that's the way i like it. but you want to make sure if you do choose to cook it inside, use your meat thermometer and take a registered reading off of that stuffing. you've got the raw juices going into the stuffing and you want to make sure it's 165 degrees. >> we do some of the turkey and everybody loves it so much. >> absolutely. >> you're going to continue answering questions. >> i am. >> thank you very much. you'll be back next hour. >> iz+mt will. first the president grants millions of illegals amnesty. now they may be taking our jobs. the incentive to hire them over americans that will have you furious. plus, will you stuff your belly and then go shopping

was charlie brown thanksgiving, it's a tradition now. my kids love it. i was struck by thinking, is this like a new thing, this shopping on thanksgiving night? it's starting to trickle it. but the complaints about christmas starting back in september now. and even in the charlie brown thanksgiving special, charlie brown is talking about christmas items being out in september and october. it's like 40 years ago that thing came out. >> there are a lot of people who like to work holidays when they can because they get paid a little bit more money. and that makes a big difference for a lot of people. there is a ohio democrat, state rep there who is saying he believes that they should pay more and make it a law. in fact, he's saying they should be paid triple time if you're going to work. >> yeah. >> he said that last year around thanksgiving, he met a woman and her 82-year-old mother, both had to work. and he said i was offended. can't there be one day that's carved out of this consumerist
materialistic society we're living in? >> i would love to know if he was out shopping on that day. that's how he met her. here is your bag and receipt. by the way, i'm offended by this. >> but there are a lot of people who have to work the holidays. if you're in a winter community, that gets a lot of snow, you got snowplowers going, you got hospital workers. >> to regulate and have a contract saying we're going to regulate and have this business have to pay you triple time, many businesses pay double time or time and a half to work on holidays. let us know what you think about that. you can weigh in on our web site. here is somebody work double time. ainsley earhart standing by with the headlines. >> it's such a pleasure. it's so fun. thank you. let me tell you what you missed while you were sleeping. a fox news alert. a major terror plot foiled. security officials in israel confirming hamas militants were planning car bombs and kidnappings, even an attack on the soccer stadium in jerusalem. police arrested more than 30

eric holme is giving back to his community in a mighty way. he grew up with a single mom helping her bussing tables throughout high school. he didn't go to college, but he said he never gave up. now he owns one of the most successful restaurant chains in florida. he joined us earlier to talk about paying it forward with the helping from the heart program. >> very humbling being able to give back at this size of a thanksgiving feast. but when we were children, that thanksgiving meal at the salvation army meant an awful lot to us. and we are thankful that we can give back like this today. >> we are thankful for him. golden corral is the restaurant he owns. today they plan to serve 25,000 meals with help from 1,000 volunteers. those are your headlines. we had an opportunity to talk to him earlier. >> such a great story. wonderful guy. >> thanks so much. we have breaking news from
overnight. a massive mob of ferguson protesters filling the streets of los angeles. police arresting more than 100 people. >> dominic denatale joins us where protests were calmer last night. >> reporter: yeah. we saw a few dozen people protesting outside one of the gallerias here. they moved on pretty swiftly. we had the state troopers turn out. they're shifting out, turning around the shift with the county police that have been here for much of the night. the big difference we're noticing today is there is no national guard here on west fluorescent which we seen, having a significant presence here. they have been standing outside ferguson market and liquor here. images emerging of what actually happened two nights ago, three nights ago when rioters pulled down those boards and actually started storming in. the security footage shows how they stream through the door and started just grabbing whatever
they could. one of them started a fire and managed to find fluid to ignite a fire inside this store. the woman running a milk carton pulled it out. amazing of what was going on there that night. also some pictures emerging, "wall street journal" of what happened to businesses here. the clean-up certainly starting this thanksgiving morning as weapon come down here to see precisely what happened to their businesses. clearing up debris, also just trying to assess how much does this cost. no official estimate at this time. despite it being three days since the riots took place and more than two dozen buildings were torn down. we can not take for granted that the tension is being defused in any shape or form. it was a quiet night. it is a quiet morning so far. before the weekend, if you think about it, there is no indication yet of how many protesters will return and how much indeed there is still deep anger that this
turns into violence again. we'll see what happens today. back to you guys. >> wow. cold out there. great job out there and thanks. we'll check back with dominic a little later. meanwhile, we want to get to the 88th annual macy's thanksgiving day parade with a huge star, maria molina is live with a huge star this morning. hey, maria. >> hi, good morning. it's really tough to hear you because energy is picking up. we have a band playing. we have the balloons up and we have a very special guest with us this morning. welcome, good morning. how are you? >> happy thanksgiving. i'm good. very happy to be here. >> you're a tony award winning actress and singer and best known for your role in "frozen." the animated film that everyone knows about and that song, that everyone knows the lyrics to and sings along. so it's "letting go." how are you today? how does it feel to have so much success? >> really thankful for this incredible year. it's just been wonderful to share the whole "frozen"
experience. i'm here on broadway in new york and i'm glad to be back in new york city. this is a great way to kind of pull all that together and then i have this holiday album coming out. so i'll sing some things from that. ill love seeing everybody's youtube videos of "let it go." that was the most amazing thin is listening to other people outside of myself. >> their own renditions. and what will you be singing for the parade? >> i'm singing "all i want for christmas is you." >> will you be on a float? >> i will be on a float. the chocolate float. i've had a lot of chocolate in the last couple weeks, which i don't need. >> please share. >> i will. >> is this your first time at the thanksgiving day parade? >> it's not, because i've done a lot of theater, we come and perform at macy's. with "wicked" and" rent ." so great to talk to you this

good for the economy. we keep on hearing that they're bad. but a report by my council of economic advisors put out last week shows how the actions we're taking will grow our economy for everybody. >> the president promising that illegal immigrants will bring a boost to our economy. but there is a disappointing down side. they may be taking our jobs as well. you can thank obamacare for that. a loophole in the health care
law gives businesses a 3,000 per employee incentive to hire illegals over native born workers. that's because employers aren't required to provide illegals with health care. therefore, they're exempt from penalties and fines. so will this cost u.s. citizens their jobs? joining me is he wants entwhistle and film maker dennis michael lynch. you've known about this for a while. this isn't new news, right? >> no. i've been scream about this for a year. and unfortunately, it's only coming to the surface now. let me explain how this works using my own company. i used to have 250 employees. 50 of them would be front office workers, sales, marketing, et cetera. i give them insurance. my guys in the back, though, lower skilled, lower wage, i can't afford to give them insurance. so as you said, if i don't give them the insurance, i get hit with a fine. that could be between 2,000 and 5,000. not 3. so if you look at the higher range, if i don't get insurance, i have to pay a million dollars fine. but now because obamacare is not given to anybody but legal u.s.
citizens or legal aliens, the illegal aliens, 5 million, or are like ten million who just got the work permits from president obama, i could now hire them legally and rid of my u.s. citizen employees and give myself the million dollars. >> the critics will say, the obama administration is not promoting that you do it this way. in fact, this may even be a loophole. would you say a loophole? >> no. i tell you what, i've been asked this question, do you think he knows? i do think he knows. and i find something ironic. he gave the other day after ferguson, he gave the speech in chicago about how it is that there are so many hardships in the black community and then he goes on and talks about amnesty. anybody who is familiar with this knows that amnesty of this kind throws the black community under the bus. we've got 22% unemployment for young black males. >> highest in this country. >> in some cities, it's 50%. so now what happens is that these people are all going to go
in and take those jobs. employers are going to be forced to hire the illegal alien, if you think about it, because the obamacare businessman, the employee mandate suffers you. it pins the employer versus the employee in a way that's like "the hunger games." so you bring in the illegal aliens and that's it. i think he knows exactly what he's doing. it's devastating for the economy because you're going to look at the 200 employees i had, where are they going? to welfare. to the ebt cards. when he says it will be good for the economy? it's going to be devastating. >> we talk to maria bartiromo about jobs. this will be the big frontier term unemployed people notng look for jobs. this will help or hurt them? n it will crush them. right now we've got 92 million people out of the work force. we've got over 50 million people on welfare. let's go back to those 200 employees. when they leave, where are they going to find a job? and don't think just for one moment that the illegal alien who just got this work permit who might be picking crops or hanging sheetrock is going to
say now i can do that legally. they're going to be able to start going >>uváq+er had a thanksgiving like this? turkey on the floor with the dogs running. don't sweat t. we have a butterball expert here to help you with your questions. go to our facebook and janis is answering all your questions. we'll be right back. ♪ ♪ i'm an idaho potato farmer

>> right time, i guess. >> that's it. we've been talking about great deals that bass pro shops has today. tell us about more. >> we're happy to be open today and happy to help you. redhead jeans right here. ten dollars. >> what? >> you can't ever find a great pair of jeans like this for that price. absolutely awesome. and you go right up here to the fleece. got our -- that's ten bucks as well. >> ten bucks. >> yeah. >> you get a whole outfit for under 20 bucks. yeah. >> what's next? >> p.j. pants for the ladies right here. come in assortment of colors. these are five. >> okay. it's crazy. they fly off the shelf in a hurry. you got to hustle and get there fast. bass pro hoody for men here. this is great. everybody loves a good hoody. this is redhead. that's $14. >> okay. and these are incredible deals you have going now. >> absolutely. >> ammo cartridge. >> yep. everybody knows ammo is kind of scarce here now adays.
but we have this box of shells here. this is under $20 and a commemorative box that it comes in. >> cool. and then camera and viewer? >> yep. wild game innovations camera here. this is actually allows you to look at your pictures in the field. so you don't have to take the card out and go home. you can look at them right there and put it back on your tree. >> one last thing you've got. >> right here. this is absolutely amazing. under $20. you can see here, it folds up into this small little deal right here and you can do just about anything with this. like i said, it's under 20 bucks. basically you get this for free. >> very good. we really appreciate it. bass pro shops open tomorrow. let's go to ainsley for the headline. >> thank you. he wanted to leave the u.s. to fight with isis. now he's back on the streets. when looking issues the 18-year-old slipped out of the side door of a minneapolis
courthouse after being released to his parents. he was arrested back in may trying to board a plane to turkey to fight with isis. he's the first terror suspect in minnesota to be released before trial. shocking even his own attorney. a stunning new report shows drones nearly hitting commercial planes 25 times in the past six months. in one incident at jfk airport, a drone came within just a foot of slamming into the wing of a packed flight. the faa says they do plan to propose regulations on drones before the end of this year. but it could be years before those rules are made final. and no more christmas vacation. a massachusetts school district banning the term from the school calendar after just one family's request. it will now be called holiday break. 4,000 people in the marshfield community signed a petition, but officials said too bad. elaine taylor started that petition and she joined us earlier.

time tore news by the numbers. first up, $2. that's how much extra spirit airlines is charging for checked bags. it's just for the holidays, by the way. the company says it's trying to urge flyers to pack lighter. the fee hike running december 18 through january 5. merry christmas to you. and 69%. that's about how many companies are turning a blind eye to their employees on line shopping at work. they claim a quick ten-minute break to browse will keep employees satisfied. i can vouch for it. ainsley was very happy this morning. finally, two. that's how many turkeys president obama pardoned for thanksgiving. he named them mac and cheese. they're going to live out the remainder of their days at turkey hill in virginia. anna? thanks so much. in the world of politics, it's always turkey day, isn't it? we're taking a look back at this
year's top political turkeys. that means they either had the biggest gaffes, most controversial statements, or left you wondering, what were they thinking? the fox news contributor and political editor joins us now with his top five list. good morning. happy thanksgiving. >> great to see you. happy thanksgiving. >> thank you very much. the first turkey you have for us is the debbie wasserman schultz for this. >> scott walker has given women the back of his hand. and there is no -- i know that's stark. i know that is direct. but that is reality. >> and many said that she was acting as if he was okay with domestic violence somehow. >> yeah. sort of very graphic comparison there. kind of an odious attack. it didn't work. walker went on to win again for the third time in four years. i think for debbie wasserman schultz, the bigger problem is it furnished her own party with an opportunity to sound off publicly about her performance at the dnc. there have been long knives coming out for her for a number
of months now. her days are numbered in that position. >> days are numbered, you say. our next turkey, number four, is michelle bachman for saying this. millions of unskilled illiterate foreign nationals who can't speak the english language will all likelihood vote democrat is what she's saying. >> right. and look, i'm fully willing to concede that when it comes to the president's executive amnesty, it's quite controversial, there are some serious constitutional and policy issues at play. so to sort of rant about ill little rates in a proposed statement no less, is just about the least helpful messaging for republicans that i can possibly imagine. congresswoman bachman is retiring in december. >> i think your number three is something most people will have a hard time disagreeing with. beau sides of the aisle. president obama going golfing shortly after the foley beheading and held that news conference in martha's vineyard. let's look at this one. you remember this shot. it was just minutes later. seven minutes later, he's saying
fore. >> yeah. i think there have been a number of optics issues that the white house has grappled with this year, whether it was the golf game after the beheading, whether it was the president moving forward with a pair of fundraisers just after that jet liner is blown out of the sky over ukraine, or whether it was the white house releasing a statement about a lavish presidential party while ferguson was burning earlier in the summer, i think that even democrats would look for a little bit more situational awareness from the political team at the white house. >> these mid terms got pretty nasty and senator mary landrieu in louisiana still battling for reelection. remember her saying this about the south being sexist and racist? >> very, very honest with you. the south is not always been the friendliest place for african-americans. it's been a difficult time for the president to present himself in a very positive light as a leader. it's not always been a good place for women to be able to present ourselves.
>> why is she your number two turkey? >> that clip is just so frustrating to me. these are the words of an embittered woman and incumbent who thinks she's going to lose and probably will in the runoff on december 6. >> they elected her. >> it's so falsifiable. she's saying the problem with louisiana voters and just it's usually not a good idea to insult the people whose votes you're asking for. i know it's hot take on my part. this state three times elected her as a woman, and twice elected bobby jindal, an indian american as governor. in his reelection campaign, bobby jindal won every single parrish in the state of louisiana. >> yes. sometimes when you get desperate, you start grasping at straws. number one turkey, this happening quite recently. it was the architect of obamacare. jonathan gruber basically calling americans stupid. >> lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. basically call it the stupidity of the american voter or
whatever, but basically that was really, really critical to getting this thing to pass. >> we're idiots and that's how this got through. >> this guy, right? not only is he one of the top architects of obamacare, i should point out did the same thing for romneycare. and what we've seen now is the series of videos where he concedes that the core substantive arguments against obamacare were correct and short of gleefully telling friendly audiences that he and his ill o'clock pro-actively lied about these things to the stupid american people for our own good and the kicker is that we, the taxpayers, have paid this guy $400,000 for his work on the federal side of this alone. i would just argue that if we look at what happened in 2010 and again this past november, perhaps american voters aren't quite as stupid as mr. gruber thinks. >> that's why the health care officials are having to go out to the shopping malls and hand out flyers. >> that's a tough sell. >> we thank you so much for that. >> happy thanksgiving.

thanksgiving turkey? here is master butcher with master purveyors, this is it, this is the man's job in the house and the last thing that's got to be done. >> absolutely. every man i'm sure can't wait to get it over with once he starts. >> a few tips on this. this is always my dad's job. it's now fallen to me in the family to do it. what's the tip? >> most important, let it rest. 15, 20 minutes. the meat will absorb back the juices like a sponge instead of running all over the platter. and you want it to be cool enough where you can do it with your hand and not pierce it with a fork. you start with the back leg. alongside the body, push toward the block lightly. you don't want to tear the meat. the joint opens up. you can't cut through the bone. then just run your knife through the space and that takes the leg off. the v shape of this leg is where the next joint is that you can cut through that separates the drum and the thigh. you take your bone out of the
thigh you and slice that. then take your wing tip off. not the whole wing. just this wing tip. you can put it on your platter. you leave the drum on. it gives you more stability when doing your breast. >> then you got to slice that? >> then you got to slice the top part. i would take the skin off. it will dull your knife. >> really? >> after, slice the skin and put it on the platter. >> we have one minute on the carving. >> one minute, start the clock. ready, go. >> okay. >> you know what, i don't think we should be racing when doing things with knives. let'ser honest. >> we have to do both sides? >> you got to cut the v. >> the v? >> you want to take the breast off in a whole piece so you can
cut it safely on a cutting board. not off the bone. >> slice down. >> at the joint. >> my dad does a great job with this. >> rick, you're right about that. the speedier you go, the hour you're hacking into this. >> there we go. >> four seconds left. clayton wins again. the perfect one eighth of an inch slice. with just the right amount of skin. >> there you go. >> when we come back, more of what you're thankful for. keep sending them in on our facebook page today. ♪ ♪ (vo) nourished.
