concert series where we look at keurig where today our featured performer is life house. ainsley: such a great band. famous dave's is out there with barbecue. if you are in new york, come on out. come join us for this concert. it's free. steve: what you don't know the reason he was singing it. ainsley: you were serious. steve: came i n a taxi taxi had a flat tire. pete: uber on the turnpike. ainsley: hanging by moment. pete: broken is another song by life house. i'm all of those things. steve: we have a big show. thank you very much for joining us on this friday. ainsley: mainstream media saying president trump using fire and fury was too tough. it sounded like kim jong un. he doubled down on that yesterday. he came in front of the camera twice yesterday as the president on his vacation. and came out and said that he
is warning north korea not to do anything in guam. and that what he said fire and fury might not be tough enough. listen to this. >> you will see and he will see, he will see it's not a dare. it's a statement. it has nothing to do with dare. it's a he is not going to threaten guam and the united states and he is not going to threaten japan. and is he not going to threaten south korea. >> first time they heard it like they heard it frankly, the people that were questioning that statement wasn't too tough. maybe it wasn't tough enough. about time somebody stuck up for the people of this country and for the people of other countries. we are backed 100 percent by our military. we are backed by everybody. we are backed by many other leaders. i noticed that many senators and others today came out in favor of what i said. if anything, that statement may not being tough enough. steve: may not be tough enough.
and mr. kim better get their act together. kim should be very, very nervous. so, while many are saying the rhetoric is talking down the stock market and people are on edge, the president of the united states said, look, over the last 25 years, past presidents have done all sorts of diplomatic things, where are we now? what's interesting is apparently and we heard on this the radio yesterday. i looked it up and apparently it's true. it was three years ago that the obama administration knew that the north koreans had reduced the size of the war head where they could miniaturize it they knew this three or four years ago. we never found out about it of course, this all came to a head the past week when the "the washington post" said hey, look, we just discovered it we didn't. the obama administration knew about it three or four years ago. ainsley: didn't tell anyone. pete: combination of advisors and great instincts who knows how to stare somebody else down. soft talk and diplomacy has not worked. it has failed.
you need a credible threat of military force. uncertainty. kim jong un should be the one shaking in his boots. that's why donald trump's boots fire and fury, that might not be tough enough. he needs to get the message it will not be tolerable. not setting red lines like the previous president did. you back yourself into a corner. he has done neither. kept every option on the table staring down somebody gone way too far. ainsley: president obama, his biggest threat was global warming. he is saying no, nuclear missiles. nuclear attack, that is our biggest threat because we are dead if that happens. steve: if he says maybe fire and fury, not tough enough, we would like some suggestions from you, you know, if fire and fury, what's left? hell, fire and brimstone? email us at email@example.com. pete: these could be interesting. steve: you know what's interesting if you read the "new york times," the former national security advisor to
the united states of america, susan rice essentially said okay, north korea with nukes, we should tolerate that. it won't be so bad. take a look at this. pete: she didn't say. this she took the time to write this and send it to somebody and printed it out in a newspaper. here is what it says in the op-ed. war is not necessary to detention. history shows that we can if we must, tolerate nuclear weapons in north korea the same way we tolerated the far greater threat of soviet nuclear weapons. ainsley: we should tolerate it the u.s. should make it clear that if north korea uses nukes on us or on our allies or gives nukes to a third party we will annihilate north korea. the problem with that is it's reactive, not proactive. what will annihilate north korea after we're dead? we have to do something now. pete: there merit in a preemptive strike. have you got to do it right and decisive.
how comprehensive is that first strike capability. but history shows us that when you let dictators get the worst weapons of the world they w wield a ton of influence. what about north korea they showed us they won't stop. they have only gotten more advanced ever since. ainsley: they become more and more advanced every day. steve: is the former national security advisor correct? should the united states tolerate nuclear weapons in north korea? that scares me a little bit because i don't think that guy at the other end is stable. pete: this is why the left loses. they tell the american people settings for second beth best. settle for uncertainty. future unevident tillable. they are going to get nukes. your jobs will be outsourced. president trump stands up we're still the super power. we will bring jobs back. it may be uncomfortable. he feels safe inside that uncertainty and a lot of people don't. ainsley: i heard this morning
is this true that kim jong un killed his uncle and his brother? steve: assassinated his brother. ainsley: that shows you what we are dealing with here, folks. steve: mike huckabee refers to what happened in a tweet. we will share that in a moment. in the meantime when you for the president to say fire and fury not tough enough. some are saying hey, mr. president, tone it down. rush limbaugh looked at what the president said and he had some observations on his radio show that only rush limbaugh could. listen to this. >> they have been worried about trump going off script for months and now members of congress are worried that his blunt and provocative warning to north korea could lead to war. what does this mean? it means that wimpism has taken over the washington establishment. that wussism and wimpism and
pajamaism has taken over. north korea is a zit on the butt of a pig. and there is no reason to be afraid of it. would we run around acting afraid of a zit on a pig? mr. limbaugh, they nuclear weapons. yet they can't hit the side of a barn yet for crying out loud. what are we supposed to do sit here and wait until the real one is airborne and hope that being gentle and compassionate and unprovocative will stop this lunatic from doing what he is doing? is that what we are to believe here? that we -- the obama pajama boy method here? that's exactly how the north koreans and the iranians got their nukes. is this pajama boy liberalism way of life. we must show them mutual respect. what did hillary say? we must respect our enemies. we must try to get inside heir heads and relate to them. that's called smart power. no it's not.
it's called how to lose. steve: wimpism has taken over the washington establishment. what do you think about what rush said. what do you think about the president's comments? is he talking too much or is this something we haven't heard in a long time and it could actually work? let us know firstname.lastname@example.org. pete: something have you heard from the left for a long time, peace is the highest virtue. sometimes justice and security for your own people is higher than virtue. h.r. mcmaster doesn't want to go to war in the korean peninsula. you also don't want to be held hostage to a guy like this. iran, when they get their bomb they will do the same thing. receive steve some of the other things he said in the wide ranging interview. china can do more. opioid crisis is a national emergency. he thanked vladimir putin for kicking out hundreds of diplomats. we are trying to cut down on our payroll. he said he was surprised that paul manafort got an fbi raid and he said he had no plans to fire robert mueller. pete: it was a comprehensive
press conference. steve: i really enjoyed it. ainsley: i don't remember a president having two press conferences in one day. steve: it was interesting. the questions were really direct and short and good and the answers were shorter and director and gooder. [laughter] ainsley: let's hand it over to jillian who has headlines for us? jillian: good morning, guys. we start with serious news right now. a fox news alert. a major win on the war on terror under the trump administration. the u.s. military just confirming they carried out two massive drone strikes on al qaeda affiliated terrorists in somalia. the strike happening near the capital of mogadishu. killed high level al shabaab leader. president trump authorized the military to launch operations against the most lethal terror group in africa. a plane, packed with passengers, forced to make an emergency landing after the crew got sick. the jetblue flight heading from boston to san diego, landed in buffalo, new york instead. the woman on board posting a picture. you can see right here
reportedly showing a crew member on a stretcher. the airline has not said what caused two flight attends and the pilot to get sick. the new plane eventually landed in san diego safely. hillary clinton's benghazi scandal, yeah, it's not over yet. obama federally appointed judge judge own server for emails by the watchdog group judicial watch. the judge demands accounts of former clinton aids, huma abedin, cheryl mills be checked for any response records they sent benghazi to clinton's private email account. clinton has been slammed for not sending military support in 2012 in a terrorist attack in benghazi that killed four americans. and take a look at this. horrifying moments for pop icon britney spears when a fan storms the stage at her las vegas show. body guards and
male dancers slamming the man to the floor and holding him down. police say he rushed the stage after security asked him to leave. spears, as can you imagine, shaken by the ordeal was concerned he may have had a gun. 37-year-old jesse webb from kansas city is charged with trespassing. he was unarmed. your headlines on this friday. that is scary. ainsley: she is used to it though. did i a sign behind the paparazzi years ago. the paparazzi when she gets out of car yell so forceful. they will storm her. and she has to have body guards to do this. i was in the crowd. i thought i was in a more pit. it was like people trampling over you. they were stepping on my feet. i was shaking. jillian: one of those things you can't imagine unless you see it harassment. ainsley: she is used to this. good thing she had protection. steve: thank you, jillian. next guest worked with the cia and met with regime officials. could kim jong un actually
pull the trigger first? ainsley: emotional honor flight for the american heros who never got the credit they deserve. lisa booth is taking you on board the honor flight straight ahead ♪ uncle sam ♪ put your name at the top of his list ♪ relief in minutes. and dulcoease for comfortable relief of hard stools. dulcolax. designed for dependable relief.

100 percent by our military. we're backed by everybody. and we're backed by many other leaders. pete: the rhetoric heating up on both sides as reports say north korea could be building an arsenal for a sneak attack. how likely is this? joining us is dr. terry a former cia analyst who covered korea for over 12 years. she recently met with north korean officials in june and managing director for bauer group asia. dr. terry, thank you very much for being here. >> thanks for having me on. pete: you know a lot about this topic and american people are learning about it now. first of all, when you were there in june, what did you encounter from north korean officials? >> we came away very pessimistic because north koreans were very confident and they said they are never going to give away nuclear program. it's no longer negotiable. nuclear weapons are off the table for discussion. they are closer perfecting their nuclear program, nuclear arsenal and they will continue to test ballistic missile which they have done.
no chance for talks. pete: you used the word cocky. >> they were more confident and cocky and arrogant than ever before. even the swedish government folks, wow, they have never seen north koreans behave this way. it's because you increase nuclear ballistic missile has given confidence. pete: interesting because where his father was willing to talk he isn't. >> willing to come to the table to get concessions from us. pete: interesting. you talk about a sneak attack or what they may try to do. what's the worse case scenario what they may be capable of. >> i think for now they will continue to test icbm nuclear test. i don't believe they are actually going to attack guam or our territory. they are not going to do that. kim jong un is not suicidal. survival is his most important goal. he knows if he attacks the united states that will be the end of his personal life and the regime. pete: what do you make then of the president's comments fire and fury and saying they may not be tough enough. is that what we need right now.
>> certainly no u.s. president has gone that far to state that so firmly. i hope the north koreans believe him. they are used to having, you know, gotten away with almost everything. pete: is that because there never really was a credible threat of military force. >> because military option is very risky, we do have 300,000 americans living in south korea. seoul is about 60 seconds away from 10,000 military pieces. north korea is a nuclear power. so, of course, it's a very risky option and north koreans have always known that. they use that as a blake mail. pete: do you think we can tolerate a world with north korea having the ability to deliver a nuclear pay load to new york city. >> it's a very difficult question. i don't think they under kim jong un leadership will give up nuclear weapons. i'm not sure what choices we have. i'm hoping we need to get rid of the regime in some way, in some form. pete: thank you for your service to this country. >> thank you for having me on. pete: president trump declaring the opioid crisis a
national emergency. what does that mean? dr. marc siegel is next. we showed you this rally cat yesterday running onto the field. this morning the cat is missing. we are on the case, of course. ♪ you make my dreams come true and make stuffing from scratch. so that you can spend time on what really matters. marie callender's. it's time to savor.

ainsley: prescribing too many pills. >> you get used to them. and then the next thing you know you are out there getting them on the street. and they are much more laced than you expected. ainsley: how do you prevent someone from doctor shopping? when you are addicted you have got to get that medicine and they go doctor to doctor to doctor. dock in a box they will prescribe a lot of drugs. they don't know your history. >> you made a great point. they get them out of the medicine cabinet. somebody else's prescription. 25 thpeople on heroin start with prescription drugs. do you know where they got them? 70% of the time was somebody else's prescription. if i'm writing for an opioid, i better consider that it may not be my patient that ends up taking it. ainsley: how is the president going to do anything about this. loud does he intervene. what does he do to get these doctors to maybe not prescribe so many pills? >> he helped a the other day by pointing out prescription is key. if we don't get this before it
happens. getting addicts off of it is hugely difficult. he is going to have to start by putting more regulations on the amount of prescription drugs you can get. how many opioids can you get. in maine it's only seven days. that's going to be across the country. i had to take a mandatory course this year new york city had for anybody getting up for renewal of their license. we need education. doctors need to see in front of them how much damage this can do, whether they are being used appropriately. ainsley: proactive and not reactive. >> absolutely. ainsley: thank you, dr. siegel. >> good to see you. ainsley: this video is disturbing. a police officer shot at point blank range. >> when we first came home, no one treated us like we had done anything. ainsley: all right. well, that is the wrong video. that story is coming up as well. that officer in sout south caroa his miraculous story of survival and the words he thought was going to be his last. a message to his family. and, roll this video. these american heroes never got the credit they deserve.

day one. for every new federal regulation, two existing regulations must be eliminated. >> the regulation business is a disaster in our country. we are going to get rid all of the unnecessary regulations. steve: remember that? well, now a new report from the american action forum says the trump administration is making good on that promise to limit new regulations and kill off old ones at a record pace. joining us now to explain is the former congressional budget office director under president george w. bush and the president of the american action forum david egan. good morning to you. >> good morning. steve: so that was his promise. for every new regulation we're going to cut two. but, according to what i have read so far he is way ahead of that, isn't he? >> yeah. he is way ahead of that. sometimes the numbers literally speak for themselves. if you look at what's happened in the first six months for president trump versus president obama.
it's staggering. there is about 5% of the regulatory costs. there and 10% of the paperwork hours. mr. trump has put out 41 regulations. there have been times in history when presidents have put out 400 in the first six months. seen this end. it's over. steve: so far according to what i'm reading right here, the president has slashed 16 new regulations for every one imposed. that's stunning. and then when you look at the cost. we have got a graphic we are going to put up. if you would explain it for us. it shows the difference between the obama administration and the trump administration during the first six months. and it comes to the total final rule cost. in the first six months of mr. trump's administration $1.2 billion. that's the you were right-hand corner number. but this point in the obama administration, they had already run up in rule costs $24 billion. ultimately, douglas, that money is real money that impacts america's businesses.
doesn't it. >> there is no question about it. if you look at the entire obama tenure, that administration imposed $890 billion of regulatory costs. that's about $6,000 for every worker in america. instead of the regulatory cost think about getting a $6,000 raise. that's what's at stake here and dramatic change. steve: what have you heard from business owners and people in the retail community about the fact that maybe finally washington is off their back at least a little bit? >> this is the single biggest change from the trump administration. the business community really feels like the beatings have stopped. that washington is not trying to put them in the bulls eye and go about running their business and not worrying about regulation. steve: david holts eakin. thank you for joining us from washington, d.c. >> one state says if you want to adopt, you can't own a gun. is that fair? we're going to tell you about that and snowflakes need not apply. one university president says

>> thank you for having me. steve: you were with us talking about this op-ed you had written and it all started with a kid came up to you after a prayer service and said i feel victimized by that sermon. >> it was actually a chapel service and the homily was on i corinthians 13. for those that don't remember that's the quintessential love chapter of the bible. love is patient, love is kind. have you heard it read a thousand times. this kid thought he had been signaled out and uncomfortable feeling guilt for not being loving. my challenge was if you want us to coddle you and comfort you and not challenge your character you might want to go somewhere else. this is not a day care it's a university. ainsley: that's called conviction. >> it's called a conscience. peter peter liberal indoctrination go back to what that means. >> classical oxford model why was it established? educate a free man, a free woman a free culture to educate us in liberty and

with the glasses and screen right right there to do something. however, he also said he would not be as hard on china regarding their trade policies if they are cooperative and try to squeeze. ainsley: china said they will stay neutral if north korea attacks first. if the u.s. attacks first, china will then step in. clearly -- pete: a lot of this messaging is not just toward pyongyang but also to beijing to the chinese to say it's put up or shut up time. you better step up. we talked -- i just dropped my pen, sorry about that. steve: go ahead and pick it up. pete: should i pick it up? we just talked about how he said fire and fury and a lot of fire in the media. ainsley: people think that's too tough. pete: president thought a little bit different. maybe not tough enough. take a listen. >> you will see and he will see -- he will see it's not a dare. it's a statement. it has nothing to do with dare. that's a statement.
he is not going to go around threatening guam and he is not going to threaten the united states. he is not going to threat japan. and he is not going to threaten south korea. >> first time they heard it like they heard it. and, frankly, the people that were questioning that statement was it too tough? maybe it wasn't tough enough. it's about time that somebody stuck up for the people of this country and for the people of other countries. we are backed by 100 percent by our military. we are backed by everybody. and we are backed by many other lords. i noticed that many senators and others today came out very much in favor of what i said. but, if anything, that statement may not be tough enough. steve: he also said that kim jong un should be very, very nervous. pete: i think he is. this is a president with great advisors and great intickets. he understands strength is what is respected on the world stage. steve: what's interesting is this a completely different message than the kim family has been getting from america wants leaders over the last 25 years. that's one of the reasons why when asked yesterday over at
bedminster so negotiations over? well, you know, we'll negotiate but where has that gotten us so far? right here. pete: sanctioned, negotiated. imagine if 25 years ago we had taken out their nuclear capabilities instead of signing an accord. ainsley: wrote but war is not necessary to achieve prevention despite what some in the trump administration seem to have concluded. history shows that we can if we must tolerate nuclear weapons in north korea the same way we tolerated the far greater threat of soviet nuclear weapons during the cold war. what do you think about that? should we tolerate north korea? steve: no. i don't think so. meanwhile, congresswoman maxine waters of california has a plan. she thinks that we should find out exactly what north korea has got on their mind, what they want, and then should we give it to them?
here she is talking to tmz. >> i think there are some things that they want from us and we have to find out whether or not we can work with them on the things that they are asking for. >> what are they asking for? we had dr. sebastian gorka on with us two days ago. he said that throughout history, over the last couple of decades what north korea has been asking for is essentially extortion. they are saying we're going to get bombs and we're going to try to blow you all up, world, unless we get money. unless we get food. because we are poor and we don't have food. ainsley: let's negotiate. let's give them what they want. we will work with them. this is a leader who killed his half-brother and his uncle to get into power. this is not a normal leader. this is someone who is a dictator. he controls the media over there. he controls what people think, what they say, what they are allowed to do. this is a communist leader.
pete: opposite of freedom. you spoke of his half-brother who he assassinated. tongue in cheek tweet. at potus to north korea to talk to lil' kim. after half hour with her maxine he will drink whatever he gave to his half-brother. meaning you wouldn't want to spend that time talking with maxine waters. that statement is exactly what the left's foreign policy has been for 100 years. people forget world war i. woodrow wilson said we could have peace without victory. think about the idea of a world war where you get peace without victory. sometimes you have to confront the most evil ideologies in the world with incredible threat of arms in order to get what you want. barack obama, woodrow wilson all the guys through the lines had this fantasy we live in utopia world where freedom comes to us if we understand people. listen to them. sift down with them. steve: where has that gotten us. pete: that's how we got in the
peninsula of korean and iran. iranian bomb more threatening to us. ainsley: rush limbaugh had something to say about it, too. just as outspoken as you are. listen. >> they have been worried about president trump going off script for months. now members of congress are worried about his blunt and provocative warning to north korea could lead to war. what does this mean? it means that wimpism has taken over the washington establishment. that wussism and wimpism and ba jama boyism has taken over. north korea is a zit on the butt of a pig. and there is no reason to be afraid of it. would rerun around acting afraid of a zit on a pig? mr. limbaugh, they are getting nuclear weapons. yet, they can't hit the side of a barn yet for crying out loud. what are we supposed to do sit here and wait until the real one is airborne and hope that
being gentle and compassionate and unprovocative will stop this lunatic from doing what he is doing? is that what we are to believe here? that we adopt the obama pajama boy policy here? that's how the iranians got this their nukes pajama boy liberalism way of life. we must show them mutual respect. what did hillary say? we must respect our enemies we must get inside heir heads and relate to them and that's called smart power. no it's not. it's called how to lose. pete: it's true. steve: very well said. you got rush talking about keep in mind north korea said by the middle of the month they are going to try to shoot four intermediate range missiles around guam. as rush just pointed out there, at this point they can't hit the broadside of a barn. ainsley: we are sorry to make you think about a zit for breakfast. but it was so good. that sound bite we had to play it. pete: that's right. the foreign policy intelligence on both sides
have turned into wimps because they believe these globalists international sort of council on foreign relations we can talk our way through it with sanctions. steve: go back -- we can tolerate it. pete: new normal, steve. steve: we asked you what you thought with the comments thus far. miguel sent this email. ainsley: i feel so safe with president trump in the white house. i lo the way he is standing up for the u.s.a. pete: dems think potus should have sent bunnies and kittens not fury and fire. steve: the president is right on president trump, enough said. >> it's textbook stuff. you don't tell the enemy what they are going to do calculate against it as he said. his advisors are right there. what to do to prevent the war. prevent it by thinking you will fight one. ainsley: you have to be proactive. you can't be reactive because it's too late. steve: it was amusing watching the president during his two press conferences yesterday.
one of the reporters said okay, what are you going to do about that? he said i'm not going to tell you. hello, weren't you paying attention to my campaign? i'm not going to telegraph the game plan. ainsley: secretary mattis said they are in place. do we have a military option? of course i do. that's my responsibility. and i can't read the rest of my handwriting. steve: et, et cetera. ainsley: send it over to jillian. jillian: i don't want to know everything. i don't need to know all of that. ainsley: we need to know we are safe. jillian: absolutely. ainsley: general jack keane made us feel better yesterday. jillian: yes, he did. begin with a fox news alert. major win on the war on terror. the u.s. military confirming they carried out two massive drone strikes on al qaeda affiliated tastes in some i can't. happeninsomalia. the successful attack killed high level a al shabaab leader. president trump authorized the

the suspect is currently in custody. this was another senseless act of violence against a police officer. you know, officer gary michael was an army veteran. had three children, one grandchild. and he was murdered last sunday. and we have let the people of the state of missouri know that enough is enough. we are standing behind our law enforcement officers. you know, these men and women go out every night. they put on body army and side arm. they goat out and step into the dark to do dangerous work to protect all of us. we have seen too many of these senseless acts of violence in missouri and around the country. enough is enough, we are stepping forward to support our law enforcement officers. steve: enough is enough. you are right about that. governor, thank you very much for joining us today. >> you bet, steve. thank you. steve: so what do you think about that? email us at email@example.com or as you know we are on twitter as well. meanwhile next up on the rundown. one state says if you want to adopt, you cannot own a gun. it's the battle our next guests are facing.

in michigan we are not allowed to walk into state buildings with firearms so i was not armed. then there was a confrontation inside. we won't go into detail about that. from that point on they came after my guns pretty heavy. and demanded serial numbers from guns that we don't keep serial numbers on in michigan. it's not required by law. and every time i would ask them about it, they would say you're not complying. we're going to take your grandson away from you. and we led up to the point where they told me i was no longer to carry my firearm with me when my grandson was with me. and then it got to the point where you can't carry your firearm at home as long as your grandson is with you. ainsley: jill, what was your reaction? >> it just -- like every time we went, it seemed like they got more, put more and more restrictions. first you can have them. have you got to keep them locked up.
well then it's now you can't carry when is he with you. well then it was you can't carry at all while is he in your home. ainsley: pastor mason, how did you get involved? >> well, i was involved in that first meeting when bill was searched. and they said from the start that there wasn't going to be a power struggle, so that was a concern. really bill called me one night and said they were requesting all of the serial numbers of his firearms. and that was kind of the final straw, so to speak. i began to do some research and i had recommended contacting our state representatives, contacting the a.g.'s office. and bill and jill did that. but there was no response from those offices.
ainsley: you know, when i read about this, excuse me for interrupting you. but when i read about this law, i was thinking this is going to discourage people from becoming foster parents. i understand you are the pastor of their search and have known them for quite a long time. i was reading last night that you wanted to adopt kids and foster children and have you discouraged because of this? >> correct. that would have been i believe four years ago we looked into the process and started the initial paperwork. i believe that every child should have a safe and loving home to clean-up they can grow up in. and i would like to provide that for children that don't have that. ainsley: right. >> in the same -- in the same thought, i don't think that we should have to give up our own personal liberties, rights, and freedoms. ainsley: yeah, like bill had to do. >> to provide a loving home for a child. ainsley: bill i know you are a retired disabled marine and you carry your concealed weapon and now you are not allowed to if you have your grandson in your possession.
why is it important for you to be able to carry a concealed weapon? >> well, being disabled, it's hard for me to -- if we got attacked somewhere i would have a hard time fighting anybody off. but i learned in the marine corps. firearms, so my grandson is safer with me being armed than not armed. and my personal constitution is a god given thing and got gave me the right to defend my family and i'm not willing to give that up right. it's more of a responsibility for me. and i'm not going to let a state agency tell me i can't do that anymore. ainsley: what about your grandson? where is he now? >> our grandson, long story on that, but he has actually been returned in everyone's opinion involved with it, it should have never happened.
even his own attorney fought sending him back. they sent him back, basically, the day after the lawsuit was filed. you can take from that what you will. ainsley: returned to your daughter and you feel like that was retaliation. you feel like your grandson is safer with you? >> yes. yeah. in my opinion, and his attorney, it was retaliation. can we prove it, no. ainsley: what's your grandson's name. >> oliver. ainsley: oliver. it boils down to keeping kids safe and we hope that oliver is safe and has a wonderful life ahead. i know he has great grandparents in his life. and we appreciate your love for him. thank you, pastor mason for what you do. god bless you all. >> thank you. >> thank you, ainsley. ainsley: you are welcome. this video is very disturbing. an officer pointing a gun or being -- he was trying to arrest someone or at least confront someone and that man

system protection board rehired brian hawkins. he is the director of the v.a. medical center in washington, d.c. now hawkins was fired on july 28th after he failed to provide effective leadership to his almost 100,000 veterans patients at the d.c. clinic. so what power did the v.a. actually have to protect our veterans? joining us now is the secretary of veterans affairs david shulkin. mr. secretary, thank you very much for joining us. this is a story that has shocked a lot of people. this is someone who running a failed clinic unfortunately right there in our nation's capital. dirty equipment, delays and equipment unaccounted for. he was removed and now reinstated. how did that happen and how are you going to make sure stuff like this doesn't happen in the future? >> well, pete, this is exactly why we needed the accountability act and why the president signed new authorities for me to be able to remove people. in this case the medical center director was removed prior to that law being passed and we see what happens.
the judge brought them back. and i'm not going to allow us to bring back leaders that don't provide safe conditions for our veterans. so, we're going to have to look at this case again. and we're going to have to use the new authorities that i have under the accountability law. pete: he is back on the v.a. payroll but not as the head of a clinic. you are saying you have new authorities now where you can take another look at his case and fire him again? are you committed to say you are fired and we're going to go through the new process? >> well, we're going to take a look at all the evidence that we had before when we did make the decision to fire him. and since then, even more evidence has come out, the inspector general has released its report on his leadership and found additional concerns. so when we look at all of that, using our new authorities, whatever decision that comes -- that we come up with i think will stick this time. pete: mr. secretary you talked about the healthcare system. you understand it you know there are great hospitals and doctors in it that goes unsaid.
however it is shocking to at love vets that the d.c. clinic, the one closest to washington inside the swamp, closest to the federal government where, you know, we are told they can run healthcare is one that has had so many problems. why is it that this v.a. facility has had those problems? >> well, as you said, we have a very, very large system, the largest in the country. and in this particular case, i think it all goes back to leadership which is why i made the original decision that i did. if you don't have the right people at the top of the organization, running the place where you actually care for this country's veterans, you are going to end up having these results. pete: absolutely. we will be watching this very closely to see what happens to his future. one firing like this actually sticking can have a big impact across the culture of an entire organization. i want to pivot briefly to the issue of choice. have you talked about it's been extended, the current choice program. one of the campaign pledges of this president was a veteran will be able to take their healthcare and go wherever they want, including private doctors.
do you remain committed to veterans having the choice, not going through v.a. as a gate keep tore pick a facility that they want to go to? >> well, i have been consistent in order to fix the v.a. system and make it sustainable, we need two things. we need to build and strengthen the current v.a. system. it's a national resource that's essential for veterans and we also need to give veterans more choice. and the president and i are committed to strengthening both giving veterans more choice and decision-making over their own healthcare as well as strengthening the system. and tomorrow, the president will sign that choice extension in bedminster where i will be joining him. pete: which is great the choice extension still requires the veteran to ask the v.a. if they can go outside as opposed to the veteran making a choice. do you anticipate legislation that goes further and empowering the veteran even more? >> we are working right now with leaders in both the house and the senate to fix the choice legislation to exactly do what you just said, pete, which is to give veterans more choice to make the system easier to use and so that more
veterans can actually take advantage of that choice system. pete: much like the director of the phoenix v.a. we are going to be watching brian hawkins and his hiring and firing and hopefully retiring very closely on this program. secretary shulkin, thank you very much. >> thank you very much. pete: appreciate your time. well, is it full-time for senate majority leader mitch mcconnell to go? president trump weighing in this morning. and, he took a shot at stardom and ended up in big trouble instead. the hilarious live tv moment have you got to stick around to see. ♪ nobody can drag me down ♪ ♪ you never seen it look so easy ♪ i got a for a soul ♪ baby you're my only ♪ and we don't want something like meningitis b getting in their way. meningococcal group b disease, or meningitis b, is real. bexsero is a vaccine to help prevent meningitis b

steve: contractors looking to do business with the city of los angeles could soon be forced to reveal whether they've previously provided any service related to president trump's border wall construction. ainsley: this while democrats threaten a government shutdown to block the wall from being built. but, is it fair for the city to create a political litmus test? steve: here to weigh in is the board president forrest federation of california builder's exchange tim murphy joins us from san francisco. good morning to you. ainsley: good morning. thank you for having me. steve: okay. so we saw this story and we said we have got to talk to somebody out there because it looks like they are trying to blacklist companies who build the wall. >> that's exactly what's happening. they are moving beyond the political theater and hyperbole that this issue generates and they're creating in fact the political blacklist threatening any company that would express an interest not actually build but express an interest on working on the border wall? ainsley: how can they do this?
why is it the city's business on whether or not companies are helping build the wall? >> well, we don't think that it is necessarily the city's business on this project. what we're talking about is a project, if approved by congress, and funded by congress, that would be a lawful, federal project and for any jurisdiction to put restrictions in place that would impose sanctions or threaten companies from doing further work is actually discriminatory in nature. ainsley: um-huh. >> it shouldn't be allowed to pass. steve: absolutely. it sounds like they are trying to shame companies into not doing any work on the wall, right? >> i think that's exactly what they are trying to do. you know, there has been shifting political winds over the last several decades in relation to this. it was a little more than 20 years ago when president clinton called for expanding the border wall and doubling the number of border patrol agents along the border. and we have seen that these winds have shifted over the last two decades which is why it's critically important that we insulate bidding practices to reduce the occasions of corruption, fraud or favoritism.
ainsley: do have you a list of everyone in this area that is -- that does live in the city that might do some local work for the city that is helping helping with the wall? >> we don't have any lists like that. what builders exchange do is provide our members with information about projects that are available for bidding opportunities. and in this case because this is a federal -- this would be a federally authorized project, i should say, if this moves forward, we would provide that information to our members. they can make the business decision if they want to bid on the project or not. but they shouldn't suffer the ramifications of that if they are exploring that which is what this major would do. steve: sure, they are in business to make money. if that's going to be sanctioned by the federal government, you would think that it would be okay with everybody that they do it but apparently not in california. tim, thank you very much for joining us live. ainsley: thanks, tim. >> thank you very much. steve: wow, coming up, geraldo rivera, congressman jim jordan, and judge jeanine pirro all in the 8:00 hour

about time somebody stuck up for this country and people of other countries. we're backed 100% by our military. we're backed by everybody. we're backed by many or the leaders. many senators and others came out very much in favor what i said. if anything that statement may not be tough enough. steve: may not be tough enough. geraldo? >> steve, first of all it is very important, i mean no disrespect at all to the president of the united states that you divorce his words from his actions. i mean sometimes his words can sound a little crazy. fire and fury, which conjures up the image of a nuclear apocalypse, scaring the bejesus out of everybody. those are his words, but if you look at his actions in terms of the foreign policy a ran that, for instance, during the campaign he was going to move the israeli embassy to tel aviv to jerusalem, a hotly-contested move. he was going to do that. ps, he became president he did not do that.
when he was candidate he would cancel the iran nuclear deal. you know, even though it was signed by all those other nations and so forth. but ps, he became president and did not cancel the iran deal. i don't think this is a president who will be all fire around brimstone and irrationally do something militarily versus this rogue regime north korea. this morning, fox news announced or fox news is reportings that china has announced that if north korea strikes first, for instance, kim jong-un threatening now guam, if north korea were to fire missiles at guam, china says they will stay neutral. they will not come to the military rescue of their client state north korea if north korea strikes first. but, importantly, china said if the united states strikes first, then china will back north korea
like they did with devastating consequences in the korean war in 1950. there is a lot at stake here. all these people recklessly speaking of preemptive strike on north korea better know that china says if there is u.s. preemsieve strike. pete: that is what china is stay saying. president may be tripling down on fire and fury. military solutions are locked in loaded in place. hopefully kim jong-un will find another path. in retrospect, military action looked pretty darn good now. we look back in 2037, 20 years from now, if we had done something in 2017? are we at one point diplomating or appeasing to a bomb that could really hit us. >> bearing in mind, the korean war, the north korean army wiped out.
we had them beaten to a pulp. the chinese army crossed alu river and bogged down for three years in the terrible conflict, caused tens of thousands of americans lives. talking tens of thousand of lives, pete, estimated 21,000 north korean artillery pieces pointing at seoul, the capital of south korea. so from the minute one just if they get one shot off each, 21,000 artillery shells land in the city of seoul, south korea, and hundreds of thousands die. i think you have to be tough with kim jong-un. i like that the president, if president trump is being tough with this crazy guy. and i even like some of his rhetoric, the president's really unprecedented and extraordinary an scary. you have to be a little crazy dealing with crazies. i appreciate donald trump will not do anything irrational. everybody understands this is walking on eggshells, no good
solutions here. nikki haley and united nations did a brilliant job, got 15 members of the security council including china and russia to go along with condemnation of another cree. let's keep it if they move first, we can smack them, world will have our backs. i think striking first is crazy talk. steve: meanwhile talk about some republican on republican inner party fighting. it was mitch mcconnell hit president trump first where he was referring to the new president. he said, mr. trump has excessive expectations never been in this line of work before, set artificial deadlines. the president has been taking some shots at mitch mcconnell. yesterday the president was asked up in bedminster, hey, mitch mcconnell, he was unable to get the affordable care act repeal and replacement act done. is it time for him to go as some
republicans said? this is how the president responded. >> i tell you what, if he doesn't get repeal and replace done, if he doesn't get taxes done, meaning cuts and reform, if he doesn't get easy one to get done, infrastructure, he doesn't get them done, then you can ask me that question. >> what does that mean? >> you can ask me the that question. that means ask me that question. >> ask him that question. he tweeted this out, mitch, get back to work, repeal and replace, tax cuts and infrastructure bill on my desk for signing. you can do it. at this point what is the president doing? is he essentially using this public outcry to motivate him to get something done or had it up to here with him? >> steve i don't know what is in the president's head. all i know the president is -- first of all there are two mitch mcconnells. there is mitch mcconnell the politician, managed to keep open the supreme court vacancy so
gorsuch could be nominated and put on to the bench and high court of the united states. mcmcis a brilliant politician. as a lawmaker he is stings -- stinks. how he dare he criticize the president of the united states's for failure of repeal and replace it was in mccan nell's court for seven years. they never put together a reasonable bill that would satisfy the gop. he lost his own allies. now he is blaming the president? how much longer do the american people have to wait if the republicans have reasonable substitute for obamacare, where the hell was it? to put down the president, the president is absolutely right to be impatient, have it up to here with mitch mcconnell. ainsley: is specially geraldo, he is on vacation. the senators are taking a break right now. steve: the president hasn't decided whether or not he wants to fire mitch mcconnell, but geraldo has. >> the boss has absolutely all the right in the world to be,
his patience exhausted with all of the rhetoric and baloney, repeal and replace. steve: he needs him. >> well he needs the gop but, mitch mcconnell has to understand that we can now see that this emperor of the united states senate is wearing no clothes. he full of bluster. we're going to repeal and replace. he didn't think, hey, wait a second, get 30 smart guys, women and men together, you know formulate a plan acceptable to the tea party guys and freedom caucus guys and the, you know, susan collins of maine, this one and that one. i mean they had seven 1/2 years to come up with a republican solution to giving health care to the american people and they utterly failed. and now to say that the president of the united states was naive or inexperienced, and that is what the problem was, i
think that really, steve, to me that goes beyond the pale. you have stabbed the boss in the back. i think that mitch mcconnell right now better be wondering, you know what? thes about thing mitch must have has going that his wife is very effective member of the president's cabinet. pete: very tone deaf. you talk to any grassroots conservative across america. they don't blame president trump. they blame mitch mcconnell. that will hurt him in the midterms as well? >> i think the fact there is all this division and that mcconnell could not deliver a united gop caucus, i think what it does, the sill have lining, i know many of our viewers don't like me to hear me say this, i believe now is the time, there is plenty of problems with obamacare need to be fixed. obama trumpcare or trump obamacare, i don't care what you call it, would be nice to see middle of both parties, 60, 65, 70 united states senators,

experiencing a black friday. our hope is that sunday is coming but it might well be hell for a while, end quote. changing gears a little bit here, a little boy gets his 15 minutes of fame or seconds, whatever you want to call it, having a complete meltdown, getting dragged during a live newscast. take a look behind that guy. the child throwing a tantrum behind a reporter in scotland, when an older beryl pulls him out of the camera shot. he refused to walk reporter in front of camera, obviously had no idea. i feel at one point in time we all that happened to all of us. i lived to tell the story. steve. >> steve: not just on camera. thank you very much. could there be a round two repealing obamacare? ainsley: the house freedom caucus launching a petition to he reintroduce the 2015 clean repeal bill for obamacare. how would all of this work? is there a chance that this could reignite the repeal battle. joining us to break it all down,
ohio congressman, founder of the house freedom caucus, mr. jim jordan. thanks for being with us, mr. congressman. >> food to be with you this morning. ainsley: tell us about the discharge petition. >> same exact legislation we passed 18 months ago, the senate all voted for. we want to bring it to the floor. the leadership won't do that. the only way to do that go around them, get a discharge petition. when you get sufficient number of signatures it will come up with a vote. we will start that in a few minutes on the house floor. steve: you're confident you will get votes. paul ryan, can't feel good about this. you're doing a an end-run to do it. leadership says you can't do it. >> he says there are not votes there but calling question, is different thing. when you're out in front of god and everybody is a different story. i would like to prove the house can do what we said. maybe house can't pass clean repeal, why they didn't support it. i want to prove that we can, that is the way to do it.
ainsley: isn't it paul ryan's job to make sure there are votes. >> maybe getting a way to show him we have votes if we get segtures. we hope the american people will tell the members of congress, do what you do. when we act like us we win, when we act like them we lose, said dick armey. i crossed district of ohio and ran like you did and keep your promises this is way to do that. steve: they forgot that promise, some of them did, in the u.s. senate. what do you make of the president of the united states going after mitch mcconnell not being able to get 'r done on repeal and replace? >> i'm with the american people. the president is too. they're frustrated. i saw last few days traveling across our district. people are disappointed what happened in the united states two weeks ago or frankly what failed to happen, doing something about this law that has been so harmful to families. i'm with the president saying that we should do what the people told us to do. i think everyone in congress
should be focused on that from mitch mcconnell to jim jordan to everyone else. again that is why we're launching this effort today. ainsley: we know who the holdouts are in the senate. who are the holdouts in the house that we should be worried about or republicans need to be watching so their constituents will know whether or not they are repealing and replacing, doing what was promised? >> ainsley we passed in the house, passed by one vote but we passed obamacare repeal and some replacement elements that legislation. what we're trying to do is clean repeal. let's do that. frankly, if we can do that. a lot of people tack about a bipartisan solution, the way you get bipartisan solution first repeal it. when you mix some repeal with some replace like we tried over the last seven months, democrats will never help you. this is obamacare. this is the sacred cow to these guys. if you first repeal it, come together with the kind of replacement we need to help families. we think this is strategy we suggested from the start. i introduced a clean repeal.
congressman sanford introduced replacement bill. do both of them but do them in separate pieces of legislation so maybe get a bipartisan solution on replacement. that is what we hope we can still accomplish. steve: we know what you will try to accomplish today. you will circulate the petition. you think you have votes and signatures. stay tuned. jim jordan of ohio. ainsley: thank you, congressman. >> thank you. steve: coming up you know their chart topping songs, now life house is taking to the summer concert stage coming up next. ainsley: about first we'll check in with shannon for what is coming up at top of the hour. hey, shannon. >> two major flashpoints for president trump. that he hasn't talked tough enough with regard to north korea and his spat with the senate top republican heats up in a public way. plus meet the attorney who convinced a federal judge to order a new search for hillary clinton's benghazi emails. that attorney joins us live. democratic congresswoman from california says millions of law-abiding gun owning americans are quickly becoming domestic
