tv The First 100 Days FOX News March 8, 2017 4:00pm-5:01pm PST
a little more relaxed, we did not at a bar yet, but who knows. steve requested is. thanks for inviting us into your homes tonight. that is odd to make it for this "special report." fair, balanced, unafraid. "the first 100 days" hosted by shannon bream. >> shannon: looking live inside dual committee rooms. battle rages over the committee health care bill. setting up a nasty fight that our capitol hill producers could continue deep into the evening, maybe until the sun comes up. i am shannon bream in for martha maccallum, on day 48 of the first 100. the backlash only growing stronger from the conservative wing of the republican party. as the american health care act finds itself in what is known as the markup session where lawmakers can offer up changes and amendments, some of those changes may be necessary as today was full of back-and-forth between the white house and capitol hill. >> are we going to do what we said we would do?
are we going to repeal and replace obamacare with something better? this is the covenant that we made with the american people when we ran on a repeal and replace plan in 2016. >> we are designing a system that is not going to lower costs, and that is the big deal. >> by removing the mandate of a government-mandated, you must buy this program or you will pay a penalty, and eliminating choice, we are enacting, i think, very strong conservative flat numeric values and health care that give all-americans more choice at a lower cost. i think that should be a very positive message. make no mistake, the president is very proud of the product they produce. >> we are going to try to make this bill better if we can, but right now, where it is, it is not what we told the voters we were going to do. >> shannon: tonight, as president trump finds himself in sell mode, we will delve deep into the divisions. page david mcintosh, president of the club for this year, he just met with the president
within the last hour but he is going to tell us whether he was convinced by mr. trump's pitch. then governor scott meeting with the new -- here to tell us what he thinks the pill is a good start. we begin with key congressional correspondent mike emanuel on the hill. >> two relevant committees getting a first crack at this republican health care package. this hour, lawmakers continue the work on this bill. democrats have convicted mack accused colleagues are trying to rush the bill through before they've gotten an assessment of the price tag and overall impact from the congressional budget office. >> my inquiry is, again, if i can say it, if you'll let me say it is, after the last two months of saying we were going to use this, that we were not going to try to jam things down -- >> speak of the gentlemen have a parliamentary inquiry. >> now you work doing exactly that.
>> what is your inquiry . >> republicans came out against the package yesterday, president trump tweeted that he feels sure his friend will come along with his new and great health care program and the senator offered this response. >> i do agree with the president, and i talked with him this week, i agree that obamacare is a disaster, and i agree that we should repeal it. i think that is where the unity is. then we're going to have to have a debate over replacement. >> fox news has confirmed in the house republican conference meeting with steve scalise today, as to members if they are with the president on health care or with house democratic leader nancy pelosi. >> i think they should be with their constituents, and their constituents have a lot to lose if they go along with this. it is interesting to see the figures of the people who supported president trump who are on the affordable care act. >> they say the president is in sell mode, and many sources say
that will be critical to getting this done. part of that offensive is expected to include budget director at mick mulvaney inviting members of the conservative freedom caucus to the white house next tuesday night for a little pizza and bowling. >> shannon: a bit of a bowling summit. all right, make. thank you very much for the update. joining us now, david mcintosh, president of the club for growth who called bill, a "warmed, substitute for government health care" but he just met with the president. it is pitch work? david, let's find out. how did the meeting go? there's been no secret that you've been been a big critic. >> we shared those concerns, criticisms of the bill, with the president. i can say, i was encouraged because he was listening. yes, he was selling, he said, we've got to get something done, i am pushing you and the congress to get a bill through so that we can repeal obamacare.
we pointed out that the house bill isn't the best vehicle for doing that. they don't fully repeal obamacare. they keep some of the taxes that he passed. they keep the expansion of medicaid, and the worst thing for us is, they don't create competition against across sta. people will end up spending as much of the do now on their health insurance bill. and the promises that republicans made were, we are going to repeal it so there will be competition, free market, you can pay less and get better health care. >> shannon: you are not convinced this does that in any way. >> the most encouraging thing, shannon, the president and his team said, yes, we get it, this needs to be changed. we encouraged him to michael push them to change it, we want to work with you to pass a better bill. >> shannon: something people have really been looking forward to come up when the criticism first bubbled up, the president tweeted out, we're going to get that. are you confident that will
happen? also, we had on congressman kevin brady, the chair of one of the committee's tackling this right now. i pressed him on whether they are going to let people make substantive amendments. you want to know that that input is going to be taken great are you convinced from your meeting with the president tonight that this thing will happen? >> i am convinced the president is going to push for it, i'm not convinced the house leadership is taking input from conservatives. they haven't from the beginning and that is the mistake they are making on this bill. i think they should do is allow amendments to fully repeal obamacare and then work from there to bring back a free market bill and a process that will benefit all americans because health insurance will be cheaper and they won't have to have all of these constraints and mandates that the obamacare builders. keeping a lot of that is the big problem with the house bill that they are working on. >> shannon: they have got it price tag, we know it is not free. i want to ask, where you come
down on the issue of -- we had senator lee on last night, talking about reintroducing the whole obamacare repeal from 2017, would you support that is a different vehicle? >> i think that is when you could easily pass in both houses. once they start making changes and ryan starts adding things back in that look like obamacare, you start losing votes. yes, i think that is a good starting place for them. i think they could take the ryancare bill and get rid of the changes and keep obamacare provisions and then the ryan-caret bill could be good too. there are some good things in their. >> shannon: i see icu of adopted the moniker that a lot of folks i don't love the bill are now calling it ryancare. thank you for giving us some intel and insight into your meeting with the president and keep us updated.
>> i am encouraged by the president pushing them to keep changing until they get a good bill. >> shannon: david mcintosh, thanks. here now, florida governor rick scott, and met with speaker paul ryan today. i know you spent a lot of time meeting with the president one on one. what do you make of what we have so far. would you pass it as it is written now? >> you know my background. i ran the largest hospital in the country, this is important to me, we know obamacare is an absolute mess. the president inherited a mess. i am encouraged that we having a real conversation here. i'm going to make sure it is fair to floridians, but i am encouraged, and i'm going to work to make sure -- i want to make sure that we get a bill fair to floridians and make sure people have access to health care. the problem here is, costs are too high, whatever we've passed has to focus on costs. >> shannon: what do you say to those who say they don't see in
this bill any evidence that it will bring that cost down? >> we got to focus on cost. if you look at -- access is 100% tied to cost. that is my focus. on top of that, whatever we do, i have got to fight for florida, and i'm going to. >> shannon: let's talk about medicaid, floor did not take the medicaid expansion, that is a hotly contested issue. there are some senators who are conservative g.o.p. senators who say, listen, if you don't keep the medicaid expansion going, it has been critical in my state, you may lose my vote. there conservatives say, we don't even like that is continuing for three years. where'd you come down on this? you made a very bold choice you thought was best for your state. >> sure. we know the way they have done obamacare, it is not sustainable, costs have gone up, taxpayers are not going to build pay for it, it has caused premiums to go up.
just got to be repealed. in the meantime, i've got to fight for florida, and i'm going to fight for florida to make sure it is paired for florida. we didn't do the expansion because we knew it was not sustainable. i've got to make sure that whatever passes is fair for our state. i want people to get access to health care, but like you said, we've got to focus on the cost side. >> shannon: what about across state lines? is that something you support? >> absolutely. you want to drive down health care costs? i whatever insurance you want, make sure you have more competition, across state lines, and reward people for taking care of themselves. those three things will drive down costs. >> shannon: what you make of the tax credits? especially the freedom caucus and others say that it is just another word for an entitlement and that is not something they can vote for. >> this is way better than obamacare. this bill, if this bill passes, it is way better than obamacare. i think there are a lot of things we can improve on. i want people to have access to
health care. i want them to be able to afford health care. i think this is a great starting point. i think we are going to keep working on it. >> shannon: florida governor rick scott. thank you, governor. breaking news this hour, fbi on the hunt for a mole inside the cia. makes a very rare statement about this latest massive leak of classified information. ahead, former cia contractor james mitchell, the man who personally interrogated the mastermind of 9/11, on the dangers these leaks pose to our nation. plus a california mother of two struck and killed by an intoxicated driver, we are now learning he was known to be in the country illegally, deported five times previously. we'll debate that case just ahead. >> knowing the history that he had come out with the and so forth, just a slap on my hand and sent back. he came back. it should have been done like that.

central intelligence agency, the fbi launching an investigation to find the person who leaked the sense of classified information as they search for the next manning or snowden. we'll be joined by james mitchell, the man who personally interrogated 9/11 mastermind khalid sheikh mohammed. first, ed henry live in washington with new details. hi, ed. >> we are told the leak involves the entire hacking capacity of the cia. that part, and pursing a revelations about how it has the capacity to break into smartphones, turn smart tvs into microphones that record our conversations and could actually kill someone by hacking into a car that is connected to the internet. the cia has just released a statement acknowledging that this is a very damaging leak, of course, that could jeopardize american personnel and operations. the cia also insisting that while they have these tools, they are not using them to spy on americans. a spokesman declaring it is
important to note that the cia is legally prohibited from conducting electronic surveillance targeting individuals at home including our fellow americans, and the cia does not do so. the cia's activities are subjected to rigorous oversight to ensure they comply fully with u.s. law. the white house meanwhile today also jumped into the fray. >> we will go after people who leaked classified information. we will prosecute them to the full extent of the law. this is playing with our nation's national security, notes mcnutt should be taken lightly under this administration. >> tech company scrambling tonight, apple declaring about 80% of their users have the most updated operating system that fixes vulnerabilities while samsung simply said privacy is a top priority. as for the hunt for the mole, telling catherine herridge there are three scenarios, an insider who is an employee or networker, or a network cyber breach or some combination of the two. >> shannon: ed henry live in washington. here no, dr. james mitchell,
author of "enhanced interrogation techniques" pretext for being with us tonight. >> thank you for having me on. >> shannon: we understand there is officially a federal criminal investigation, how in the world today go about tracking this. i asked our inside team to tell them, how many contractors are the cia, they couldn't break it down, but they said within the intelligence community as a whole, at least 27,000. >> the assumption is that it is a contractor. because that is what it has been in the past. but it could be anyone. the other question that you asked me about how they are going to go about tracking these folks down, i really don't think we should talk about that. at least people who know should be talking about that, because the very reasons we don't want to hacking tools release does, we don't want them to know the methods we are going to use. what we need to do is relentlessly hunt these folks down because they are not just placing american personnel at risk, they are placing american
lives at risk. >> shannon: so it's not a contractor, are you saying you do believe it was maybe a cyber breach from outside? >> it could be an employee, it could be a cyber breach, it could be a small band of people. one of the things that we've done in this country that disturbs me a little bit is that we have romanticized this subculture of hackers to the point that they have become almost a tribe where they have become called heroes, and that the cool thing to do is to get into the hard places to get into and then to sort of give people a peek into their underwear drawer, so to speak, right? that has somehow become a way of taking scalps, and that's a problem. particularly if it is an employee of the government or a contractor or it is some sort of a breach, we need to find that, we need to find those people, and we need to stop them. >> shannon: who benefits from this? >> who benefits?
criminals benefit. they are talking about doing more releases, and if they release the source code, that is particularly dangerous. not only would criminals have that but the bad guys would have that as well. every day somebody from al qaeda and isis gets up and tries to figure out a way to kill americans here in the united states. imagine if they could launch a catastrophic attack simultaneously with some sort of cyber warfare weapon attack as well. it makes us incredibly vulnerable. a second side effect of this thing is, i know a lot of people have criticized me because of my involvement in interrogations. one of the weird side effects of releasing this kind of information is, you make people like me that much more necessar necessary. we have these surreptitious, clandestine ways of getting information, now you have revealed all of that, so it is going to be harder to do that because they are going to protect themselves. and if they can go invisible, then they can plan attacks. >> shannon: yes or no, are you
confident that our investigation will find the person or persons responsible? >> they will if they're not politically correct about it. i know that there are those on the left and on the right who, like a sacrament glamorize these leakers like snowden and manning as if they were some kind of culture heroes or some kind of called heroes. and i think that is a mistake. they are traitors. they should be treated like traders. because it's not just the cia personnel or the intelligence community personnel or the military personnel or our state department people who are in danger. it is american lives and american citizens. >> shannon: all right come on, thank you for your insight. we appreciate it. >> thank you, ma'am. >> shannon: here now, ari fleischer, and marie harper ma. how do you begin to tackle this issue, now the cia is having to talk about things, although they are not publicly confirming or
denying the authenticity of this material, having to talk about sources and methods, i know that others are talking about it, our enemies are seeing it. how do stem the bleeding at this point question mike >> it is a huge problem. the cia statement you just read is an important one because it made several points that americans need to realize. nothing in this set of documents that was put out talks about anything directed against americans. it puts out information about activities that, quite frankly, we believe the cia should be doing, going after terrorists, criminal drug gangs, people trafficking in person periods nothing in this that was directed against americans. that is important. but it also does incredible damage to this contribute to the doctor was absolutely right in your previous interview. the bad guys now have information about how we go after them, and that is a problem. i have faith that the fbi and the intelligence community will find eventually whoever did this. absolutely, this is a problem.
>> shannon: ari, what problems does this raise? >> channing, great question, that's one of my first thoughts, anybody who works with us, we know we can put our lives and their hands. this makes them scratch their head and say, we want to work with the americans, but is it safe for us to do so? this is a calamity. i think dr. mitchell made a very good point when he stated that we cannot celebrate the edward snowdens of the world. they are some of the lowest, most vile criminals. they put our country at risk, americans at risk, and they should not be celebrated. they need to be condemned. one of the things i hope comes out of this is that they return edward snowden test so he can go on trail and get what he deserves. >> shannon: marie, do you think it is time for him to publicly renounce and collect wikileaks. he at one point said, i love wikileaks, he made comments.
they are not doing things to benefit the united states of america, and a lot of people think we haven't done enough to go after them, to shut them down, to come up with real punishment for people who are feeding them information. what would you like to see from the white house on this? >> absolutely. i think a full denunciation of wikileaks. there were a lot of national security experts, you're absolutely right, both republicans and democrats, who were very uncomfortable with how donald trump embraced wikileaks because they were helping him politically. wikileaks is an organization that had already done damage to the united states with the chelsea manning documents. they are an organization that is trying to undermine u.s. security, and i want the white house to come out and fully criticize them, denounce them, and make clear that what they are doing is completely abhorrent and they will find the source inside the government of these leaks.
>> shannon: ari, is this a golden opportunity for the president to step out on this issue? you've been at the heart of the communications. >> the president is in a jam and he put himself here on this issue. a president that called on them to release even more information to wikileaks. i was always uncomfortable with russia interviewing with our election and finding wikileaks to be a conduit. and it happened to benefit donald trump politically. that is a route that i think is close to him, unfortunately, because of choices he made early. wikileaks is not the issue here. the issue here is traitorous americans that have done this. i presume that they are americans. the people who are associates, contractors, in all likelihood, and i'm stunned this could happen twice, had been at the national security agency and haven't hear the cia. there has got to be a better way to protect our assets and our information. it bothers me from the inside that he could happen within months. >> shannon: and wikileaks
tweeted out today they have only released 1% of what they have from the cia. ari, maria, good to see you both. speak up thanks. >> shannon: still breaking tonight that you will not want to miss, and alleged iraqi insurgent entered the u.s. with a fake i.d. lawmakers calling for an explanation as the shocking details unfold. we got that just ahead. +2 unthinkable crimes allegedly at the hands of illegal immigrants, one involving a young man now charged in the gruesome decapitation of his own mother, the other claiming the life of a mother of two who was struck by an illegal immigrant who was driving, allegedly under the influence. david wahl and richard fowler are here on those cases next. >> it so was taken away from us that it is a pain you cannot describe, you know. and it is fair and it will be for the rest of our lives.

murder charges for allegedly decapitating his own mother. trace gallagher has been following the chilling details of those cases. trace? >> hi, shannon. let's begin in california where 42-year-old sandra duran, just an hour after leaving church, was struck and killed in her car by a drunk driver. police say the intoxicated driver, 45-year-old estuardo alvarado was fleeing the scene of another traffic accident at a high rate of speed. and the reason this case is generating so much outrage is because, since 1998, alvarez had been deported five times and had been arrested in los angeles more than five times, including for two previous duis, driving without a license, several charges of drug possession and resisting arrest. alvarez is now being held on $2 million bail, and if he were to be released, which is highly unlikely, immigration agents have issued a detainer to taken into custody. the family of sandra duran say
they don't want this case to be used against illegal immigrants just trying to make a life, but they also believe california authorities share in the plane. listen. speak up knowing the history that he had with the duis, it was like a slap on the hand and sent back, and he came back, and it shouldn't have been done like that. >> separately, 200 miles east of charlotte, north carolina, and illegal teenage immigrant from honduras has been charged with killing his mother. police say 18-year-old oliver funez decapitated his mom because he, "felt like it." when police arrived on the screen, they spotted the suspect carrying both a butcher knife and his mother's head. this two younger siblings were inside the house on mike unharmed at the time. he is a so-called dream are protected under docket. his attorney says that he has significant mental issues.
shannon? >> shannon: trace, thank you for spelling out the issues for us. joining me now with more, david wall cannot attorney and president supporter, and richard fowler, fox news contributor. good to see you both. interestingly enough, david and richard, i'm sure you're aware of this too, the victim and the drunk driving crash, her sister is an l.a.p.d. officer and said, not only are we grieving, i am worried about how many other families this is going to happen to create david, is this the president's best argument on this issue? >> the two public officials that owe them an apology are the mayor of l.a. and the chief at l.a.p.d. allowed to stay in l.a. after he returned to the united states after being deported five times. on top of that, we risk losing, and l.a. county, 3.4 billion, with a b, dollars of federal
funding, and as far as the young monster who beheaded his mother, how do we know he wasn't adjudicated criminally insane in honduras? we don't know that, because of people crash the border, we can't do a background check. that is why the wall is so necessary and that is why mr. trump is so hard on getting it build. >> shannon: richard, even the woman's family, her father has said, i don't want her case to be used to hurt other people who were coming here in good faith to be immigrants who need to make a living, desperate to escape their home countries. even he, who just lost his daughter, said he doesn't want this to change the entire conversation. >> and that is what makes this issue so hard, shannon. you think about stories like this that are devastating and depressing, and those folks shouldn't be in the country. then you have case from the "miami herald" a couple of weeks ago, a man that came for economic freedom, being deported
for minor traffic offenses. we have both sides of the coin, and it's not working. the reason my, donald trump, while i understand while he has put this executive order forward, this is a stopgap measure. they need to get bold and say, we are going to actually have comprehensive immigration reform with a pathway to citizenship. right now, america is operating on 1980 1980 immigration laws,a 1980s have called and asked for their laws back. now that donald trump has the white house, he has the senate, and he has the house, let's get some competence of immigration reform done so we can fix the problem spread stolen said we are on a temporary pause, for some of this, you're okay with this, i have a lot of issues with people who are in this country who are under investigation, according to the fbi. david, does this begged the question, like richard said, like this is time to get something done on capitol hill that will be a more permanent solution? >> channing, 1986, ronald reagan passed the amnesty act. everybody thought that would
cure the problem. they said, we'll give everybody amnesty, after that, strictly enforce it. the bottom line is, we have immigration laws, people in europe waiting in line for years to get into america, saying, wait a second, everybody that sneaks up from the southern border, we have to make special accommodations for them just because? it doesn't look that way. mr. trump is focusing on the hardest core criminals like mr. alvarado, who wouldn't have been here, by the way, if he had been given sanctuary in this city and a president that it actually enforce the law. >> shannon: we have to leave it there. he was somebody that had previous drug charges and drunk driving charges as well. one of the cases under the administration will be focusing on. richard, you cited something else. we thank you both for being her here. up next, a story that is still breaking at this hour. a probe from a republican lawmaker claims and i rocky. suspect is inside the u.s. after lying his way into the country.
just minutes ago, we got exclusive reaction from the justice department and the white house. breaking details next. plus, as a day without women protests continue, we will examine whether this does more harm than good. old me i may reach my blood sugar and a1c goals by activating what's within me with once-weekly trulicity. trulicity is not insulin. it helps activate my body to do what it's supposed to do release its own insulin. trulicity responds when my blood sugar rises. i take it once a week, and it works 24/7. it comes in an easy-to-use pen and i may even lose a little weight. trulicity is a once-weekly injectable prescription medicine to improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes when used with diet and exercise. trulicity is not insulin.

>> shannon: breaking tonight, new calls by an investigation after an alleged iraqi insurgents got into the u.s. as a refugee with a false i.d. he was on the radar of the joint terrorist task force, some reports say he has gone missing. just moments ago, we got reaction from the justice department in the white house. joining us now with breaking details. hi, william. >> shannon, earlier this week, the chairman asked the attorney general to explain how a suspected iraqi insurgent got into the u.s. despite being vetted as a refugee and lying about who he was paid republican senator ron johnson of wisconsin wrote to the attorney general
after this iraq he became the subject of an investigation by the joint terrorism task force in texas. according to johnson's letter, and i'm quoting, this individual allegedly fought against american troops as an insurgents in iraq and at some point entered the country as a refugee under a false alias. the gatt jttf tracked down theq he who at one point boasted of killing 1,000 u.s. troops, yet he later applied for and received refugee status under this false name. white house said today this statement, "president trump has already taken several important steps to strengthen our national security, including the executive order he signed this week, which will put in place to have her betting measures on foreign nationals from countries compromised by terrorism. the department of homeland security recently said one-third of the 1,000 fbi domestic terrorism cases involve those
admitted to the u.s. as refugees. the attorney general's office refused comment but said the matter is still under investigation. back to you. >> shannon: all right, keep us updated, because we know there is more to this story. thanks, william. here now, a fox news contributor, and matt bennett, cofounder of third way, assistant to president clinton. good to have you both with us. the question that may be refugee vetting needs a little vetting. >> we really don't know anything yet about whether this has implications for policy or not. senator johnson's letter was not atypical, members of congress do this all the time. somebody comes in as a whistleblower, they write a letter and say we want an investigation on this. sometimes where there's smoke there's just people blowing smoke and sometimes there is fire. we don't know whether this is a real case of a refugee who is radical or not. it might be, and if that's the
case, it needs to be fully investigated in an independent way, which is the very thing democrats have been calling on congress on. >> shannon: i think you would agree with that, the last point anyway, maybe not the first part, that this is an outlier of the case. >> it's not an outlier of a case. unfortunately, it happens all the time. so in 2015, the obama state averment testified before congress that the state department has accidentally left light and almost 10,000 people who later had their visas revoked retroactively because they either engaged in terror activities or had ties to terror. the 10,000 people, almost 10,000 people penetrated our defenses cannot beat our screening system, got visas, than the state department figured out, oops, got to revoke those, and then when jason jay for his acts, they said, we don't know. we don't know if they are in the united states, where they are. this is a major problem paid
second point, last year, cnn and "the washington post" reported that there were 1800 people that were supposed to be deported for posing a national security threats, and instead, they were granted citizenship. citizenship! these are people who were considered too dangerous to enter the united states and the accidentally gave them the right to vote instead of deporting them. our screening system is deeply committed deeply, deeply broken. >> shannon: we have this pause now on refugees, syrians not singled out, all refugees, and a ban on travel. is it worth taking this pause with all of those numbers but those are real people, and if we have 10,000 potential terrorist suspects running around the country that we don't know about or junction where they are or what they are capable of, can you be in favor of the pause? navy not a permanent ban but some time to look at things and get some work done. >> marc was talking about a
different thing. these weren't refugees, these were people coming in on different kinds of visas. the refugee system is actually incredibly rigorous. it takes two years. there is, like, a 20-step process that refugees have to go through. and the overwhelming majority of refugees are desperate people, many of them women and children, many have fought with or served as translators for our troops on the battlefield and are living in a enormous danger and some of these countries. so, no, i don't think the pause makes sense. >> shannon: what do you make of the fbi's announcement that 1,000 domestic cases of potential terrorism they are looking at, 300. they say a third of those cases are people who came here as refugees. >> well, there is a big difference between investigations and arrests. >> shannon: true. >> if you look at the data, the overwhelming majority of terrorist attacks in the united states, of which, thankfully, very few, people who have lived in the united states, either were born here or were citizens or lived here for a long time. people who come as refugees
very, very rarely commit crimes. people that come as immigrants commit crimes and lower numbers than citizens. so this is not a serious problem. >> shannon: we are almost out of time, want to make sure i give marc a quick final word here. >> sure. it's not only refugees that are part of the pause. it is other people with visas. the fact is, we know people who have come here on visas and fooled our screening system and carried out terrorist attacks. the woman in the san bernardino shooting, she came here and killed 14 people. the underwear bomber, his father went to a u.s. embassy and said, my son is a terrorist. they didn't revoke his visa, he came in at almost blow up a plane over detroit. >> shannon: all right, marc and matt, good to hear from both of you. protests and strikes across the country as a day without women with fewer women at work in fewer kids at school. katie pavlich here to debate.

celebrating women to bashing president trump. >> trump does not have respect for women! but he also doesn't know the power of women. we know our value, and we know that america doesn't function without us. >> shannon: katie pavlich is a news editor at town hall.com, and kathy arue is a liberal editor. good to have you both with us. all right, kathy, i want to start with you. is this more about promoting and celebrating women, or is this more of a continuation of the women's march which was clearly, and washington, about saying, this is not our presidents, we want nothing to do with him. >> it is a continuation of the women's march. they did say this is the fourth-largest event that they are planning, 4 out of 10 events in the first 100 days of trump's presidency, to protest him and his stance on women and what he has done for women, which isn't much, and what we expect from him isn't much, and by putting
betsy devos in office, it is hurting teachers. many teachers have already taken to the streets and are protesting. process team trump and betsy devos and the record so far. it is a protest. >> shannon: katie? your reaction 20 saturday? >> it is hard to take the line about betsy devos seriously when hundreds of teachers refused to show up at hundreds of parents had to scramble to find child care. a separate issue. in terms of what happened today, i think that women that showed up for work today deserve a lot more credit than those who did not, and as far as what these women are allegedly protesting, in the last month, president trump has assigned two pieces of legislation investing money into specifically putting money toward women entrepreneurs and the sciences. he has also developed a new correlation between the canadian government and the u.s. government to promote female ceos and business. and, of course, there is ivana trump, who is a close advisor -- ivanka trump, who is very
progressive in her issues, child care, maternity leave, paid maternity leave. in terms of what their goal is, i'm not sure, but i think the focus should be only one who showed up for work and did their job, climbing the ladder based on their merits and the work they do and earning respect that way rather than throwing temper tantrums. >> but women did show up for work today, and if they did show up, they are wearing red to show that they are with the women who did not show up. the point of not showing up, a day without women, a day without a woman, is the point, can schools function without women? and teachers and nurses are the most underpaid women in the country. for teachers not to show up -- they are underpaid and they are overworked. very aware of that. >> shannon: what we have had this particular events today had hillary clinton won? >> i don't think hillary clinton would have overruled the policy that takes the away --
>> the public polling shows that americans are against that. >> thousands of women are going to die as a result. >> katie, i'll let you take that, i'll let you respond preach to go thousands of women are not going to respond paid >> it is a fact paid >> it is not true at all. >> that is not true at all. >> in terms of how we move forward here and help with the goal is, national women's tape was originally founded in 1909 by the american socialist party. nothing has really changed to this day. this was a march about liberal women, liberal policies, policies, taxpayer-funded abortion, which the majority of americans disagree with. it wasn't about all women. pro-life women were specifically told they could not go. kudos to those who showed up. >> shannon: katie and cathy, thank you for your time, and we're glad you both showed up for work today, along with me. we'll be back.
