try like hell to hide that bald spot, folks. hanging in there, right? together we are hanging in. ♪ ♪ ♪ this is how we roll ♪ we hanging around ♪ singing everything on the radio. >> pete hegseth off the couch. griff and i taking over with rachel. rachel: i love when we come in with this kind of music. ed: they don't let the swamp come in. all these d.c. people. this is the music that gets you pumped up. got to get pumped. you need the energy. rachel: we need the energy. we need the coffee. if you are at home, get your coffee. stay in bed. griff: yeah, because d.c. is taking over. we will tell you everything that you need to know. ed: you have been at cpac for a couple days. griff: listen, guys it was the 22nd time i covered
3:02 am
cpac. 1985 was the first time newt gingrich had just taken over speaker of the house. rachel: reporter. >> first year in 1995 i was oliver north. we were doing radio row at that time. there was only four or five and now there are hundreds of shows and internet broadcast. ed: mainstream media didn't take cpac seriously. oh, wait, not much has changed. griff: it's a very important speech and president trump gave a political speech and he did something and we're going to talk about everything. because there wassing for nerve a red meat fire up the base speech. he addressed the -- thought being complacent, a challenge that republicans have. ed: worried about the mid terms, maybe. wants to get people pumped up. griff: let me let you hear from the president himself. >> people win, people get complacent. you just won and now you are happy and complacent.
3:03 am
don't be complacent. because, if they get in, they will repeal your tax cuts. they will put judges in that you wouldn't believe. they will take away your second amendment, which we will never allow to happen. they will take away your second amendment. rachel: it's important for him to do this because there really is an enthusiasm gap. democrats are going to go to the poll and republicans are -- and a lot of independents. ed: republicans have won a lot of special elections nonetheless. rachel: they are happy. sometimes when you are happy as you said a little complacent. a little more taxing to get to the polls. griff give right. so ronald reagan spoke 13 times to cpac. he understood the need to be close to the base, right, to the impact that that cpac conference had in speaking to the base, this, of course, an uphill battle. so i think president trump really took a risk, a lot of politicians won't which is
3:04 am
to admit hey, we are going to lose guys, unless you fire up. he is talking to the base of the base, don't get complacent. ed: he has a strong hand at cpac that a lot of people don't want to admit he has. a couple months ago, around christmas, when mainstream media, all the democrats, nancy pelosi, the crumbs, people are going to die. the tax cut is not going to help you. it's not going to trickle down. bottom news, after bonus, after bonus. now we see polls this past week more than a majority the country believes the tax cut is a good thing. he has a stronger hand to bring to voters. rachel: judge jeanine was in the room. she was on with hannity last night. here is what she had to say about the energy in that room. >> you know what's amazing is the energy in the room when the president spoke was very uplifting. it was optimistic. and it reflects the fact that probably in as long as i can remember, we have a president who actually fulfilled the promises he made during the campaign. the president was firm. he was funny.
3:05 am
he was personal. and he was resolute. resolute in making sure that american confidence is up. that under employment, unemployment is down. and that the american people understand that they have the right to make a living. they have the right to be able to provide for their families. and they have the right to secure and safe cities. i hit all the notes. he left it out of the park. griff: judge jeanine tagging the mainstreams there. for the reporter sitting in the room. my salute favorite moment was trump being trump in off-the-cuff moment noticing himself on the mirror and admiring his hair. ed: he is never self-deprecating. never. griff: listen to this. >> what a nice picture that is look at that i would love to watch that guy speak. oh, boy. [applause] i try like hell to hide that
3:06 am
bald spot, folks, i work hard at this. it doesn't look bad, hey, we are hanging in. we are hanging in. we're hanging in there, right? together we are hanging in. rachel: yes, together, with his hair hanging in. it was interesting. when i saw him from behind i started to understanding, it started to come together for me how he actually combs it together in the back to cover the bald spot. it all makes since now. ed: one big sweep. actually being transparent about it. rachel: he has to. he went up on the plane a while ago and it blew over it went viral. he had to address that. ed: american people wanted to know about it. >> i wanted to know. this particular lip really made the hair part come together. >> when he was talking about it you heard the crowd just screaming they love it i did something for us. i positioned myself right outside those doors when you got the jail break, if you
3:07 am
will, of all the people spilling out and talked to people immediately after to see what they thought of it. here is what we put together for you. >> i think this is really where trump excels. people may not love the way he says everything. he steps back and collapse with you. he enjoys the collective of it he is not the elitist let the praise come to him. talking to the crowd and saying what he believes. he really understands that people aren't looking for someone to talk down to them and seem superior. >> i was totally overwhelmed with all the promises made and all the promises kept and to hear from the president. he being repeat it over and over again. it sound sounds fresh and new to me each time i hear it. >> like he said in his first year he has gotten a lot more done than most have in their first year. he is doing a lot for the people of this country and i really appreciate that. >> it shows he is also an entertainer and president and why america loves him so much. >> you don't get that on a lot of other channels.
3:08 am
it was funny because you had people at msnbc and elsewhere attacking the president for he is talking about his bald spot. and there is all these serious issues. then they are saying he covered 31 different topics. when barack obama did 31 different top pings. he hatopics.he covered all kindf ground, folk. he didn't say everything everyone wanted him to say. for example, went after north korea. we didn't get into that yet. we will get into the substance. he had some fun. rachel: the thing they hate about it though, ed, they don't like when is he likeable. they try so hard. the whole thing of the resistance is don't normalize him. this is the deal. this is what people love about him. ultimately he more than any other politician i have ever seen is better than barack obama. he understands the connection between theater and entertainment and police cars. hpolice -- and
3:09 am
politics. a guy at the bar shooting the breeze. ed: sounds like george bush he got elected and i covered him. rachel: on your seat don't know what you are going to get. ed: some fun and serious talk as well. really serious talk and serious news breaking overnight. disturbing update, frankly, on the deadly school shooting in parkland, florida. we are now learning not one but four broward county deputies reportedly waited outside the school. outside the school while the gunman opened fire. taking, of course, 17 lives. now, this is according to sources familiar with the coral springs police department down in florida whose officers ran inside the building to try and stop the shooter. this is being reported by cnn but, remember, the broward county sheriff was on scene and at that town hall a few days ago talking about they did all they could, folks, to save lives. griff: meanwhile, there is more details coming out about the tip that the fbi
3:10 am
failed to investigate. the "wall street journal" reporting the anonymous woman called the agency more than a month before the shooting saying she feared nikolas cruz would, quote: get into a school and just shoot the place up. i know he is going to explode. i'm not sure she could have been clearer. rachel: no. we are hearing more details that he brought a bird into his house and cut it open on the kitchen counter. these are such troubling disturbing facts. remember when the father of meadow pollack stood up in the white house and he said i'm pissed. that's how america feels right now. the more details that come out we are pissed off at every turn. the government failed us. ed: they say see something say something. people saw things, they said it the fbi didn't listen. it appears like local police and sheriff's office didn't listen. maybe compounding it, nothing could be worse than the tragedy of all the lives lost. right? so all this political noise and everything else, nra. but the fact that the
3:11 am
sheriff -- i was down there briefly. i don't want to exaggerate for about a day last week when it first happened to help out with the coverage, our miami bureau was leading the way, i happened to be down there and talking to people. they were off at the beginning really rallying around the sheriff, sheriff israel in broward county on top of the situation. in the last week this story has turned to the point where he is out there on cnn at this town hall a couple days ago saying we did all we could. we need the young people to stand up and tell these politicians gun control and all of these things he said we did all we could and i'm pair phrasinparaphrasing all he. he had to know the facts. he did not. his department, his sheriff's department did not do all they could. rachel: listen to this. he was shifting the blame because he knew the next day he was not going to be age to hide that information that you just gave. ed: yeah. rachel: laura ingraham had the sheriff o president of the n
3:12 am
last night. >> some of the fault i put on the broward county school board. for years they know that the schools have been soft targets and they claim they wants to have better police presence inside the schools and they want tougher security yet, they do not want to cough up the money to pay for that better security and fortify their schools and have better designs. they don't want that. when they are fortunate enough to have a school resource deputy on scene an armed police presence a lot of the liberal thinking principals on campus there, they don't want the police officers making arrests on campus and they don't want the drugs to be found on campus. and they don't want the warrants to be served on campus because it looks like there is bad stats at the school. ed: one quick thing i want to say i was on vacation the last few days. i haven't been following every nuances. i have people tweeting me saying #fire sheriff israel. not think. i know we need to be fair to sheriff israel. we are getting these reports. he should come out. did his department do more that we don't know about.
3:13 am
but my broader point here is, a lot of people didn't wait for the facts in the beginning. this is the nra's fault. this is donald trump's fault. they had basically zero facts. now facts are coming in and it's less and less about gun control. it's still an important debate. it's going to happen. it's going to be talked about. sheriff israel and these facts are coming out. folks, let's get to the bottom of the truth here. the fbi and irving else. griff: that's a great point. i would just add this. pray for that one deputy scott peterson because he is going to live with this for the rest of his life u cpac organizer matt schlapp who i spent a lot of time with greeting president trump ahead of the speech does he think that president trump did enough to energize the base? we will ask him next. ed: if former president obama gives a speech but the press can't report what he said, did it actually happen? ♪ sacrifice our love ♪

3:15 am
3:16 am
president trump do what he
3:17 am
needed to da to fire up the base with an uphill climb in this year's mid terms? >> i don't know how he could have done any better. you know what he actually did, griff, is he literally had a prepared speech which they had thought through, and he just totally gave a nearly extemporaneous speech. it was off the cuff. it was from his heart. it was obvious that he was just talking about what he believes his kin ship is with the conservative movement, which is the base, the heart and soul of the republican party, and they loved it. griff: matt, do you believe, there was some discussion in the halls, you know, president trump at the beginning of that speech said i am a conservative, how about? look what i have done? do you think the crowd there views him as a true conservative now or more of a republican president who has accomplished significant conservative goals with an agenda to do more? >> i think the hard part for donald trump, because he was not a career politician, and, let's face it, we always elect career
3:18 am
politicians, because he came from the business world, his political and policy positions were either unknown or they had been mixed. really all they care about is what he wants to do and what's in his heart. he spoke from the heart yesterday. and he went through his accomplishments and he told them where he wants to take the country. and they love the agenda. i don't think anybody disputes that he's a conservative, that he wants to be known as a conservative president. and i think if we took a poll of this audience, i think he might do the math matt particularly impossible and be over 100 percent. griff: if you took a poll amongst your crowd what was the highlight of the crowd? what are they talking about all afternoon and this morning? >> well, they loved the fact that he was funny and that he was just himself. but on the issues, it's interesting the issue that really popped in both his speech and the vice president's speech was this decision to move th our embassy
3:19 am
in israel to jerusalem. that was wildly popular. i also thought his remarks about dr. billy graham were really heart-felt, really appreciated, touching, and, of course, you got the old stand byes. right? this is a crowd that does support the second amendment. this is a crowd that does support the president position to denuclearize iran. this is a crowd that does support the president's decision to pull out of that ridiculous paris climate change agreement. there was a lot of -- i think i lost track. griff: listen, it's not over yet. cpac continues today. have you got dr. sebastian gorka. who else have you got. >> mick mulvaney. from the office of management and budget. we have mark levin and tom fitton. i get the privilege of sitting down with house intelligence chairman devin nunes. we're going to give him a much deserves award. but then he is going to tell this crowd why this misuse of our intelligence community go after political
3:20 am
opponents is so problematic for our constitutional democracy. grif. griff: matt schlapp what a speech it was. some in the mainstream media didn't like it. we will talk about that later. thanks, matt. >> good, good. griff: coming up, the debate over guns has been front and center after the florida massacre. politicians have their ideas. what about everyday americans? we have a town hall panel here to discuss it. that's just ahead. it's going to be great. hey! we didn't have a homeowners claim last year so allstate is giving us money back on our bill. well, that seems fair. we didn't use it. wish we got money back on gym memberships. get money back hilarious. with claim-free rewards.

pistol when she intentionally did the act. ford has been arrested twice before for trying to climb the white house fence in 2017. police believe she has mental or emotional issues. and, paul manafort maintaining his innocence as he is hit with new charges by the special counsel. trump's former campaign manager now accused of secretly palinsecret paying eurn leaders. trump blasting former partner rick gates for pleading guilty. the former campaign aide admitting to conspiracy and lying to federal investigators. manafort says gates lacked the strength to fight the allegations. ed? ed: rachel, appreciate it. in the days since last week's horrible shooting in parkland, florida the debate over guns in america has been front and center. president trump weighing in. >> our whole nation was moved by their strength and by their courage. we listened to their heart wrenches stories. asked them for ideas and
3:25 am
pledged to them and i can speak for all the senators and congressman and congresswomen all of the people in this room that are involved in this decision that we will act. we will do something. we will act. > ed: what do everyday americans think. vin sent hill a former police officer. dr. diane hesitat hess is a pol. and a managing partner of benchmark. we will try to get them all. in just for a woken news round we will come back at 9:00 a.m. eastern. i want to throw the first open question to not move this in any direction u what do you think when you hear we reported a couple moments ago that beyond the gun control debate that the trained police officers who could have helped did not help? >> well, i will take charge of that being former law enforcement. it is very disheartening that you have individuals
3:26 am
that were trained for these types of situations that did nothing that led to the deaths of 17 young kids. it's very troubling. heart breaking. ed: killer shah, you are progukisha, this startedprogun . i'm not saying that's gone away. as we have gotten more facts, people trained with guns weren't jumping in. where are you a week later and how we move forward? >> i still believe we need more gun control laws. the issue with that is that our pliferls are not trained to deal with mass shootings that have been happening. our country has not been prepared for it at all. that's why i believe there is a need for more law enforcement. there is a need for restricting individuals from owning semi assault rifles and weapons that should only be used in combat. i think that's the major issue. ed: i feel i could bring new here in terms of dealing with schools and the president had listening session this week and our kids which are the most
3:27 am
important part from a public health strategy standpoint, what should would he be doing? >> let me follow up and say in terms of this man who didn't enter the building. this was a failure of epic proportions at all levels of government from the 39 reports about this young man to the calls to the fbi that weren't followed up on, to this officer standing out for four minutes while people were being slaughtered inside. this was a failure of epic proportions on all levels of the government. and in terms of a public health approach, which is what i advocate, the liberal argument that we need to deal with gun control has failed dramatically. what we need to do is talk about this as a public health crisis u the same way we did when automobiles came out and we had to deal with safety issues there. and when you do that, you can get to the point that kisha is talking about in terms of making solid moves in terms you have public policy perspective. ed: i want to talk about mental health and come to kevin because she was talking a little antigun control and you are prostates rights. i want to keep it going
3:28 am
around and around. dr. diane hess. mental health where that fits in and then we will get kevin in here. >> mental health is a huge crisis in america. biggest problem for us as precede tritions is not very good reimbursement for mental health providers. i as a provider in new york city is almost impossible to find child psychologist who takes insurance. to get a psychiatrist you have to be hospitalized. it has to come to that point. we need reimbursement for mental health. we need to limit the access of these kids, kids do not need to get assault rifles. every study has shown in other countries that you limit the access to assault rifles and these mass shootings do not happen. ed: kevin, can you jump in. >> there issue we are having find a central focus over making th the boogie man. it wasn't the nra's fault the sheriff's office didn't act on numerous threats. they were alerted to a fact that he made an instagram
3:29 am
post with guns and saying he wanted to shoot up the school. my issue is, if you don't have laws on the books that can cut him under arrest or to con i confiscate his guns because of that and people can't yell fire in a crowded theater. that's an issue we are having here. ed: i see vincent nodding his head and i want to get you in here. you started the conversation. but i also want to point out even president trump said this week though regardless of what happened with the deputies, regardless of mistakes made, there needs to be some sensible gun measures here. of the president himself is talking about that. how does that fit in. >> i agree. he shouldn't be able to purchase a gun at 18. when i was a police officer i had to be 21 before i could get certified with a weapon. ed: rob o'neill real quick. fox news contributor shot usama bin laden tweeted you should be 21 to vote and 21 to purchase a gun in america. how many hands think that's a good idea? we found some agreement. so make your point. >> my point is we are talking about the nra. we are talking about assault
3:30 am
rifles. if you think about dylan roof he didn't have assault rifle he had glock which i carry. start talking about assault rifles and that it's not going to solve the problem. because you will still have mass shootings. we need to talk about how do we react to those a lot faster. ed: quick last point? >> last point, if you make a threat that you're going to do an attack in a gun-free school zone or gun-free zone. there should be laws on the books to be held accountable. >> this child was reported multiple times. he wasn't allowed to carry a backpack to school. only allowed to you carry a clear bag because they were so afraid of him. the system failed all the students. ed: i feel like we heard from everyone. hear more at 9:00 a.m. eastern. what did we miss in this debate and i want everyone one last after points were made. how many hands believe president trump and republicans and democrats in congress will do something to move the country forward in this? how many are confident? give me your hand if you think you are confident? zero hands.
3:31 am
that's something we have got to deal with we are going to talk about it 9:00 a.m. eastern. thanks for all those viewpoints. president trump hitting a wide range of topics in his powerful cpac speech, including faith and religion. >> in america we don't worship government. we worship god.

3:36 am
>> above all else, we know that faith and family, not government and bureaucracy are at the center american life. we know that. [applause] because, in america, we don't worship government. we worship god. ed: you sigh the red line is republican, obviously. yellow was independent. this is a republican crowd and blue on the bottom was democrat. >> that's right. you can see there, this is one of the best short lines of his speech. republicans gave this an a plus. independents a b plus. and democrats each gave this a c. this is a dig at a democrat and yet they still responded to. this one of the things so interesting here is that we do see right now that the american people are feeling better about the america's place in the world and for messages like this that a lot of americans out there are really feeling good about it. rachel: democrats said at the end when it went -- it sort of separated and then it came together when he said we're about -- we don't worship government. we worship god.
3:37 am
>> that's right. ed: something the democratic voters might not embrace: rachel: next sound bite is about arming teachers in the school. >> these teachers and i have seen them, at a lot of schools where they had problems. these teachers love their students. and the students love their teachers in many cases. these teachers love their students. and these teachers are talented with weaponry and with guns. and that's -- they feel safe and i'd rather have somebody that loves their students and wants to protect their students than somebody standing outside that doesn't know anybody and doesn't know the students and, frankly, for whatever reason, decided not to go in, even though we heard lots of shots being fired inside. >> you can see there, there was a big divide here. republicans gave this an a minus. independents a c. and democrats an f. in the beginning when you
3:38 am
are talking about our great teacher, everybody agreed to support them. when he started talking about arming our teachers, you could see the independence took a dive and democrats took a nose dive. this is a plan very much misunderstood. he is saying everybody, teachers are now going to be responsible for going out there and getting weapon-trained. if this is going to make you feel safer, you should carry. by the way i think that's a good thing. rachel: maybe he needs to clarify what he means. >> i think he does. griff: president very clear when he talked about merit based immigration. let's play that. >> pick out people, then they turn out to be horrendous and we don't understand why. they are not giving us their best people, folks. they are not giving -- i mean, use your heads. they are giving us -- it's a lottery. i don't want people coming in to this country with a lottery. i want people coming in to this country based on merit, based on merit.
3:39 am
griff: pretty clear to see what that grade was. >> republicans an a. independence a b and democrats a d. let's not have a lottery. let's have it merit based. most people started coming on board. that's a good message. rachel: he had funny moments. i will introduce this segment because this is a sensitive subject for a lot of men. let's play this clip. >> what a nice picture that is look at that i would love to watch that guy speak. [laughter] i try like hell to hide that bald spot. it doesn't look bad. hey, we are hanging in. >> what we heard here the dials went really quick here. republicans and independence both gave it an a. independence a b and democrats a c. poking fun at himself. made him seem authentic. ed: he made a joke. independents give him an a for this. >> democrats mostly do not go over a c with the president no matter what he

we will have to phase phase ii. fades 2 may be a very rough thing. >> you don't mind if i go off script a little bit. [cheers and applause] >> try like hell to hide that bald spot, folks. hanging in there, right? together we are hanging in. ♪ ♪ i shake it off ♪ ed: please stay quiet for a few more seconds. ♪ shake, shake, shake, shake ♪ shake it off ♪ shake it off. ed: i'm revealing a secret i love her. rachel: i do too. griff: i gave my daughter taylor swift concert tickets for christmas and i can say it went over pretty well. dad of the year here. ed: he asked me if i had a bald spot. no. i hear that from the producers like that was a quick no. rachel: that's what happened before the camera comes on. ed: they get in our ear like
4:02 am
psychological warfare. [laughter] griff: the president clearly didn't. he enjoyed talking about his. rachel: he does have one. is he very adept at covering it up. his speech was not boring and purposefully so. griff: he said i'm chucking it. we hear this criticism he won't make fun -- he won't be self-deposit tri indicating. is he all about himself. the ego and then he makes a joke why is he joking about his bald spot? he keeps them all guessing and running around. really the broader message, is he trying to rally the base there at cpac and say don't get complacent out of these mid terms. rachel: that's right. take a look. >> see the word really is complacent. people get complacent. it's a natural instinct. you just won and now you are happy and you are complacent. don't be complacent. okay? don't be complacent. because, if they get in, they will repeal your tax cuts. they will put judges in that
4:03 am
you wouldn't believe. they will take away your second amendment, which we will never allow to happen. they will take away your second amendment. >> now, what's significant there, ronald reagan spoke to this conference 13 times. he understood the importance of being in touch with that base. this is the core of the conservative base. president trump clearly taking risk. you don't see politicians all the time saying hey, listen, i'm going to be funny, entertain you, at the end of the day i have one message that is we have an uphill battle in the mid terms coming we have got to stay focused. don't get lazy and don't get come lay sent. rachel: there is a lot of red meat in there. a party highly energized. the republicans are satisfied with all the accomplishments. they did a good job of laying out accomplishments. he understands intuitively, when you are happy and content, things are going well, republicans have the state. they are runs the house. they are running the senate and running a loft governorships and get lazy.
4:04 am
ed: and before you know it -- rachel: yeah, is he really energizing and saying you can't sit back. democrats are going to come to the polls mid terms. ed: another thing i heard he didn't get into gun control because the conservatives don't want to hear that first of all, a couple days ago, i wasn't in town. he had this listening session that was carried live on all the big channels, folks, radio, the internet thing as well. he is out there saying we got to have some sensible measures here and actually, if you fact check this, in the speech, to the conservative base he said. this. >> there is nobody that loves the second amendment more than i do. and there is nobody that respects the nra. they are friends of mine. they backed us all. they are great people. they are patriots. but, the great people. but we really do have to strengthen up, really strengthen up background checks. we have to do that. ed: he said it, folks. can you say and talk about
4:05 am
gun control. he said it there. if that was not enough for you. again, the listening session, he was there with the families and the teachers, and he doesn't have all the answers. congress doesn't have all the answers. they are trying to figure it out. griff: just to point out because ed and i were talking off air it's amazing how far just in the week you were gone on vacation the debate has gone. steve: started out algone.steve. ed: started out all the nra's fault. griff: the president defending the nra. standing up for it. ed: unpopular and all of the sudden like wait a second the second amendment is the second amendment. people literally on msnbc saying is this really all real a right? it's a second amendment to the constitution. rachel: sheriff israel was very quick to attack the nra, probably because he wants to deflect from some of the information we're getting. let's take a look at what he had to say. >> i understand you're standing up for the nra and i understand that's what you are supposed to do. but you just told this group
4:06 am
of people that you are standing up for them. you are not standing up for them until you say i want less weapons. [cheers and applause] ed: this is important. let's get the nra reacting to sheriff israel. there tweet was no sheriff israel, you were the one that didn't protect these children. and that is your job. you run the largest fully accredited sheriff's office in the u.s. yet, your office failed this community. very important point whether you agree or disagree with the nra. put it out. this is america. all the views out there on wednesday the sheriff had to know some of the facts that were eventually going to come out that his team that he said we did everything to try to save those 17 kids and teachers and the coach, we did everything. and he knew that wasn't true. and blamed tonight nra. he said we need gun control. and now the facts are coming out. rachel: very deliberate. he was trying to shift the blame. if you watched that town
4:07 am
hall as i did, you would see that marco rubio and dana loesch got far more pointed questions they were put more on the spot than the sheriff or the fbi who were actually responsible for the outcome in this terrible tragedy. griff: put it in perspective perhaps why he is trying to shift the blame because he knows that one of his trained deputies, scott peterson stood there for four minutes listening to innocent children being gunned down. it was a six-minute shooting. i think the video they have of him is four minutes long. he was put up in march of 2017, scott peterson, the deputy that failed to act, was put up for the employee of the year, the sheriff of the year in the broward county. and now we have the report that there may have been three other deputies that didn't act. ed: we care about law enforcement. we care about law enforcement. >> they put their lives on the line every day. not just in broward county, around of the country. more facts are going to come out. maybe we will find out more about this sheriff's deputy.
4:08 am
maybe he just made awful, you can't even begin -- i'm not defending it awful mistakes. and maybe there are others who were trying to help. you can't blame the whole force the whole sheriff's department on this one person. the guy at the top, sheriff israel has made it like did he everything, his force did everything. and it's the nra's fault. and the president's faults. come on. rachel: if you are pointing at the nra instead of the mistakes. it's hard to be a police officer. i don't want to sit here and judge. ed: horrific tragedy, you can't imagine being in the of it. rachel: orchestrated effort by sheriff israel and the media and the democrats to point the blame at marco rubio, at dana loesch, at the nra. at all republicans who care about the second amendment. instead of looking at the very obvious problems, failed circumstances that happened within his own department, with the fbi and the very credible tips, i mean, people were calling in saying i'm afraid he is going to shoot up the school. he is going to explode.
4:09 am
they told stories of him cutting up a baby bird on his mother's kitchen counter. this is a very deranged person that should have been locked up there were failures all over the place. griff: let me offer. this last week we saw two more officers elsewhere in the country die in the line of fire for gunfire. so you are not going to find a network that is more supportive of law enforcement having covered a lot of the shootings for greta van susteren for a better part of a decade. they have a tough job. but at the end of the day, this unbelievable blame game is going around for sheriff israel to point strictly at the nra -- ed: frank siler who is on the show a lot. tunnel to towers foundation. look it up. they are raising money this very week to help the families of those law enforcement officers. maryland other states killed this week. so we have got to stand up for law enforcement. we also need accountability for what went wrong. what do you think about where the story started and now as the facts come in how it is turning? friends@foxnews.com. we will be reading and reacting all hour. all hour and all three more
4:10 am
hours. rachel: three more hours. >> kennedy: taking over. rachel: now to headlines and fox news alert. isis claiming responsibility for a deadly suicide bombing near the u.s. embassy in afghanistan. blasts killing at least two people and injuring seven in a diplomatic area near nato headquarters in kabul. in a separate incident. afghan soldiers were killed when check point came under attack by the taliban. armed woman behind bars after ramming her van into a security barrier at the white house. the secret service saying jessica ford was carrying a pistol when she intentionally did the act. they have arrested ford twice before for trying to climb the white house fence in 2017. police believe she could be mentally ill. at the time the president was finishing up a press conference at the white house with australian prime minister malcolm turnbull. paul manafort maintaining his innocence as he is hit with new charges by the special counsel. trump's former campaign

manager now accused of secretly paying european leaders to lobby for pro-russian groups in the ukraine. manafort also blasting former partner rick gates for pleading guilty. former campaign aide admitting to conspiracy and lying to federal investigators. manafort says gates lacked the strength to fight the allegations. plans for president trump's military parade are marching forward. the pentagon is being ordered to plan the event for veterans day on november 11th. it's also 100th anniversary of the end of world war i. the parade would run from the white house to capitol hill. the president was inspired after seeing the bastille parade in france last year that he called magnificent. >> a lot of people said he was inspired by north korea. wait, actually, the facts are it was based on france, an ally. griff: i can't wait for the parade. d.c. hasn't had one since quite some time. ed: after the gulf war.

>> did you hear that? it's the sound of the drum beat of indictments and guilty pleas in the mueller investigation. >> he's the newest face to plead guilty. and insider who might know secrets within trump world. >> mueller's probe has been speeding along in recent days as we have noticed, piling up indictments and guilty pleas. this may account for some of the frenzy by the president himself. ed: mainstream media meltdown after special counsel robert mueller charges former trump campaign aides paul manafort and rick gates. this time tax fraud. begs the question what does any of this have to do with russian collusion and what does it have to do with the president. opinion editor, fox news contributor and now rock star we can add because he is a rock star at cpac charlie hurt. charlie, drum beat of indictments. we have heard this again and again and it's rick gates and it's years ago. >> yeah. that's quite a montage you played there. it's almost hard not to
4:17 am
start laughing. listening to all of it the truth of the matter is obviously this is very bad news for paul manafort. rick gates turning states evidence against clearly paul manafort. but it means absolutely nothing for, you know, making any sort of case about collusion with russia, between donald trump or his campaign or anything like that. and, in fact, some of the charges in this newest indictment are, you know, lies about, you know that occurred in the course of the investigation. and it does nothing to justify the original launching of the investigation in the first place. ed: it gets back to lobbying, dealing with congress before donald trump was elected president which a lot of people leave out. >> and i'm not belittling any of this because, you know, it sounds like some of these are very serious charges. it's also, you know, filling out forms, acknowledging that you're lobbying. so it's not even that the lobbying itself is necessarily illegal. ed: real quick to be fair
4:18 am
and balanced though. rick gates did work in the white house, unlike paul manafort. and we don't want to dismiss, either, that he could be -- could be i underline talking to the prosecutors, talking to mueller about things that he heard about in the white house. although there is no evidence or indication yet that he is turning on the president. >> i would imagine that if donald trump could get into his way, way, way back machine and do things over again, he probably would have avoided any affiliation with paul manafort and rick gates. so, and as much as that is something that he would do differently. yeah. this is a problem he wishes he didn't have to listen, you know, turn on the tv and hear about everyday on cnn and msnbc. ed: now we have to call you a rock star part of your contract. you talked about the trump effect on american politics at cpac. tell us about that. >> yeah, well, you know, it's been really fascinating. obviously donald trump is not a partisan.
4:19 am
he is not a perfect republican. he is not a conservative in sort of the normal definition, but he is somebody who comes to the -- and i think for decades going on now, republicans and conservatives have been sort of betrayed by these principled conservatives who made these promises or these republicans who failed to live up to promises. and, you know, he just decided to come in and sort of as a straight shooter, as a guy who was going to look at things in a far more practical way, less partisan way. and the net result of it has been that conservatives have enjoyed more victories over the past year than i think that we have since perhaps reagan or even before. ed: 15 seconds, charlie, less partisan but now to get people to turn out in the mid terms have you got to be partisan. can he pull the coalition back together. >> i do think enough people see that they are winning in enough ways that it will pull that coalition back
4:20 am
together. ed: all right, quick answer from the rock star, charlie hurt, good luck at cpac today. >> thanks, ed. ed: democrats crusade against those tax crumbs rages on. what are they still missing? i have a feeling that herman cain who is going to be live this hour has some interesting answers. and a new documentary shining a lot on adoption. a teen travels to thank his birth mother for not going through with an abortion. >> i've had a great life. ed: that teen, his birth mother and their adoptive mother here ♪ we are family ♪ i got my sister with me ♪ get up everybody -- #nosleep i got it... #mouthbreather yep, we've got a mouth breather. well just put on a breathe right strip and...

4:35 am
it's all common sense. and some of the strongest advocates about what i'm saying are the strongest advocates. i know them very well. political people. the strongest advocates for the second amendment. >> the crowd of mostly college aged conservatives ate up just about everything the president said. even though he veered totally off script for most of the hour and 15 minutes that the crowd was standing and listening. >> i don't know how he could have done any better. he literally a prepared speech which they had thought through. and he just totally gave a nearly extemporaneous speech. it was off the cuff. it was from his heart. >> now in a few hours the president is going to get graded by the cpac crowd with the annual straw poll with answers about how conservatives, attendees think that he is and then whether or not the senate rules should be changed so things can pass with 451 votes instead of 60. and also there are going to

what is the idea about pulling this coalition back together for the mid terms? >> it's a long way to november. the president began to outline the accomplishments he has had. record-setting accomplish. s in record setting time. it is frustrating that career politicians, the bureaucrats. the washington elites that said don't worry, everybody, don't worry, america, we've gotcha. they got us newt mess all right. that's where we are right now. this president comes in in a short amount of time changed the tax code that hasn't been touched but talked about 40 years. reduced regulations, crushed isis. the economy is soaring like never before. now we see a poll comes out that says we are respected now in the world for the first time in a long time after the obama administration and the apology tours he went on multiple times, apologizing for us being just americans. this president has turned things around so drastically. so dramatically. and in such a short amount of time. people don't know how to take it but, the republicans, the conservatives at cpac
4:38 am
yesterday, are behind this president. they are rallying, and they understand what's at stake in november. rachel: earlier this week the media criticized president trump for having notes. at cpac he went off script and now they are saying that the speech was meandering and that he sounds like hugo chavez and fidel castro. they are comparing him to a dictator. what say you actually, you know what? let's show a clip of the media freaking out first. >> okay. >> sprawling, truly sprawling meandering speech by the president. i am used to having heard from hugo chavez or fidel castro or orde erdogan, presidet putin gives something like this every year. mahmoud ahmadinejad used to give speeches like. this we couldn't see only see president trump when they were cheering about when president trump was talking about tpp. unless that audience was filled with chinese people. >> factory workers in particular. >> there were a lot of lies

4:41 am
the partnership between the federal government and local government has to be strong in order to get things accomplished for the kids and keep them safe. that's what he wants to do. and right now he is in a listening phase. he wants to hear from everybody. give us out ideas. you saw that just incredible moment, moments, plural, in that room in the state dining room with all of those grieving families u and they all had differing opinions about what they wanted. they were angry. they were scared. they were upset and they have every right to be that way. but they were also hopeful that this president would get something done and that congress would actually move to protect the children. ed: all good points. 15 seconds here. we have had a mini town haul with five experts last hour. i asked them show of hands having said all the things that president trump just said that congress will move forward and get something done. these are democrats, republicans, independence, zero out of five raised their hand. 15, 3 30 seconds what hope can you give them something will get done. >> it will. this president has made

your own opinion. you can't have your own facts. i don't know where she got that 83% benefit only goes to the top 1% i have not seen that i don't know how theret throw fitted that number. that number is an absolute lie. here's what she is missing. she is out of touch with the american people. and secondly, she may have forgotten where some of us started. i started out working at 12 years old as an assistant janitor to my dad. so i appreciate those crumbs just like most of the people in this country who work hard every day trying to make a living and trying to take care of their families. rachel: last time you were here, you said about the g.o.p. tax plan, it's not 999 but it's fine fine fine. i would say that the plan actually looks better than fine. it seems to be exceeding expectations when you put it together with the deregulation that president trump has implemented. >> i agree with you
4:49 am
100 percent. that's why i said back then it's fine, fine, fine. now, i have an exclusive riddle for you all. what does 99 have in common with the current tax plan? answer? two out of three. because, remember, 999 was the tax rate for individuals. lowered the tax rate for corporations and also had a national sales tax. this is why i'm ecstatic about it this is why the american people are ecstatic about it. because they can feel tangible results in their paychecks. so, yes, i am still thrilled with the current tax cut. griff: i love it i just love hearing 999 again, her man. let me ask you this question though, as we go into these mid terms and there is a lot of, you know, the rallying cry for the democrats that makes it harder for republicans, to win but is nancy pelosi hurting the democrats' edge going into the mid terms in your opinion? >> i do believe she is
4:50 am
hurting the democrats and the entire party going into the mid terms. there is an old saying. if you are in a hole, stop digging. she doesn't know she is in a hole and she can't stop digging and she is trying to drag many of the democrats down with her. but, the good news is, some of the democrats are starting to distance themselves from her crumbs statement because when they go home, they hear from real people who are applauding the direct impact that the tax plan is having on their paycheck. ed: you heard it from herman cain. he started as a janitor age of 12. pulled himself up by the boot straps and now not feeling very crummy. >> i'm a happy warrior, ed. ed: we appreciate it. herman cain. griff: we have to leave it there. thank you so much. ed: anthony scaramucci is here with what he thinks is next.

conservative. he went last year. the first sitting president since ronald reagan to appear. he won them over. and now he is clearly their hero. they went nuts for him. he had the off-the-cuff. nearly 90 minutes entertaining him. the point is that he now has really felt that he has that conservative mantel. and he has got to be the coach. he has got to be the starting quarterback to fire that base up. ed: and, you know, they love what he is saying because he says things that can be unpopular. the tough thing to say which is like stand up for the second amendment right now u and you might say oh, that's just a political thing to rally the base. oh they might take the second amendment away. no, msnbc people yesterday were saying is this really a right? yeah, folks, it's the second amendment, yeah. you wants to have a debate about it? debate about it. but it is a fundamental part of who we are, we will have to go moving forward what hogan gidley was telling us next stepping. rachel: whether the

president could actually get something done on guns and school safety. >> legislation can't just feel good. legislation has to do good. and what this president wants is to keep our children safe. and for far too long this has been talked about. and nothing has been addressed or actually put forward that would accomplish those goals. donald trump is more than the president of the united states. donald trump is a father and is he a grandfather. and he wants what everybody else in this country wants, which is to keep our children safe. because business as usual in washington, d.c. is over. people can rest assured that if they're concerned and they think nothing is going to get done and get swept under the rug like it has in the past. not with this president. something will get accomplished. rachel: one of the things the president said in that speech that speaks to what hogan was saying there about being a parent is. he said, listen, we protect our airports. we protect our banks. why aren't we protecting our schools and our young people who are our most valuable resource? that's what people are
5:05 am
asking about now. and i think the media and everybody else wants to move it to guns. but there is a lot of parents looking at this situation, especially so many of the mistakes made leading up to this saying we can't just depend on the fbi or the police. we need to secure the actual premises, fortify it and perhaps and he brought this up in the speech, too. perhaps arm our teachers. griff: you wants to know what really talking about? they're talking about a light hearted moment where the president went off the cuff and talked. he noticed himself on the monitor and here is what happened. >> by the way, what a nice picture that is. look at that i would love to watch that guy speak.

5:07 am
county deputies reportedly waited outside the school while the gunman opened fire inside the school. of course, taking 17 lives. this is according to sources familiar with the coral springs police department who another jurisdiction, their officers ran inside the building to try and stop the shooter according to this report by cnn. griff: meanwhile, more reports coming out about the tip that the fbi failed to investigate. the "wall street journal" reporting the anonymous woman called the agency more than a month before the shooting saying she feared nikolas cruz would, quote, get into a school and just shoot the place up. i know he is going to explode. ed: griff, they tell you see something, say something. the story began, rachel that the fbi was told there could be something there it was vegas at first. there was a youtube chat room. there was a comment, i believe. well, a call was made. and it's hard. there is thousands of tips coming. in now there is more and
5:08 am
more information. see something, say something. people saw something, they said something. rachel: very clearly. not in a very vega vegas vague . i think he is going to go into the school and shoot it up. they received 30 plus calls on the home. information that he took a baby bird and cut it open on his mom's kitchen counter. there are so many signs here this young man was screaming for help. the people around him were worried and did exactly what citizens were supposed to do. they called the authorities. and the authorities dropped the ball. remember, when meadow pollack's father was in that very powerful meeting with the president in the white house and he said i'm pissed. the more information that comes out, parents like me look at this and i go i'm pissed off too. this is serious stuff. ed: remember the sheriff of broward county. sheriff israel was at that cnn town hall beating up on the nra. talking about gun control. saying folks, you see him there. we did all we could to save these kids and it was
5:09 am
emotional and man he is all over this. and we don't want to tar all law enforcement. people make mistakes. but he presented himself as being on top of this, and now we find out that some of his folks were outside, they were in the parking lot. they are outside. they didn't help. >> did he more than that i think in that town hall he knew that information. he knew that his officers did not go inside. and he knew also that all these other things had fallen between the cracks. and he made a, i believe, a concerted effort to deflect from himself. and push the attention over and blame -- and blame dana loesch, blame marco rubio, blame the nra and blame everybody but his own sheriff's department. griff: it is a blame game. you know, the president of the broward's sheriff's union jeff bell on ingraham last night said the broward county school board hold some of the blame. take a listen what jeff bell had to say. >> some of the fault that i put on the broward county school board for years they know that the schools have been soft targets. and they claim that they want to have better police presence inside the schools
5:10 am
and they want tougher security. but, yet, they do not want to cough up the money to pay for that better security and fortify their schools and have better designs. they don't want that. then when they are fortunate enough to have a school resource deputy on scene and armed police presence, a lot of the liberal-thinking principles that are on campus there, they don't want the police officers making arrests on campus. they don't want the drugs to be found on campus. they don't want the warrants to be served on campus because it looks like bad stats at the school. rachel: that's so troubling. as a parent i look at that and i say i want the drugs and the arrest and the danger removed from my kid's school. there is a lot of butt covering up going on here. ed: point is accountability and figuring out what went wrong so it doesn't happen again. it's happened too many times. yet when it happens immediately without it's nra's fault. president trump's fault. let's figure out. hold people accountable in power. let's get the facts first. griff: ed brought that up. we need as all of us
5:11 am
parents, we need to know everything that happened so that the end of the day you want to prevent the next one from happening. rachel: absolutely. sounds to me like the media and the democrats have a policy agenda they want to push instead of really getting at the truth and figuring out what the genuine problems and solutions are. anyway, we have got to move to some he had headlines right now and a fox news alert. isis claiming responsibility for a deadly suicide bombing near the u.s. embassy in afghanistan. the blast killing at least two people and injuring seven in a diplomatic area near nato headquarters in kabul. >> we expect the enemy to continue with these horrendous attacks to be honest. we have work to do right here in kabul. and we are doing that work. rachel: in a separate incident, at least 18 afghan soldiers were killed when their check point came under attack by the taliban. an armed woman is behind bars after ramming her van into a security barrier at the white house. the secret service saying jessica ford was carrying a pistol when she intentionally did the act.

documentary connect real help for parenting kids in a social media world. my wife and i have six children. five of them are teenagers. if you have kids who use technology, i don't need to convince you that there are dangers involved with that and that there is a huge concern for all of us because we're -- we understand we are pioneer parents. no generation of parents has ever grown up with their children on instagram and snapchat. rachel: you say giving kids technology is like giving them a sports car. what do you mean by that. >> i would never give my 10-year-old the car keys and say have a great time yet, some of our parents are not quite familiar with technology with regard to social media and give our kids phones and devices with internet connections that is more dangerous long term than a car at an age that's too young for them. so what i want to do is not be doing damage control as a parent. i want to get in front of it. understand it i interviewed experts and i am putting together an experience for parents that will help educate them and empower them to protect their kids

not just one but four broward county deputies waited outside the school while the gunman opened fire of course inside that school tragically taking 17 lives. now this is according to a report by cnn. sources familiar with the coral springs police department and another jurisdiction their officers ran inside the building , did what they were trained to do to try and stop the shooter and eventually bring him down. again this according to cnn. griff: meanwhile more details are out about the tip that the fbi failed to investigate the wall street journal reporting the anonymous woman called the agency more than a month before the shooting saying she neared nikolas cruz would "get into a school and just shoot the place up." i know he's going to explode. ed: and this is when you think about how this narrative has gone and the most important part of it is the tragic while facts are changing and we've got to stick with facts and not rhetoric, what has not changed is is that tragically 17 people died in this tragedy but a lot
6:03 am
of people jump to conclusions at the beginning before the facts came in. rachel: yes we'll bring indiana geraldo because he like so many of us that are parents the more details that come in the more to quote one of the father of the slain teenagers the more pissed off we are getting. geraldo what do you think about it? geraldo: hi. it's so so very distressing, ed. you have the failure of adults, the grown ups sworn to protect these children at every level failing. you have the 911 calls about this kid that were repeated and increasingly urgent and totally ignored, or if the cops went to the house they didn't find sufficient cause to act and then the fbi dropping those two very credible tips and now this, and how you had the school resource officer, the armed and specifically-assigned deputy,
6:04 am
broward deputy scott peterson based outside the school he doesn't go in when the firing starts and now you have you've been referencing that if true is even more alarming the first three broward deputies on the scene, they had scott peterson outside the next three broward deputies come and they also draw their weapons and take cover behind a cement barricade. it really, you know, ever since columbine, ever since 1999, the drill is if a cop hears an active shooter inside a school knowing how vulnerable the children are, knowing how scant the window of opportunity to stop the shooter, the ethos is to rush in, go in, figure out what's happening later but get to the scene, don't stay outside and be most concerned about your own safety. save the children and then there's not only stopping the active shooter, there's also kids bleeding out. rachel: right. geraldo with a weapon like an ar
6:05 am
-15 the high velocity rounds hitting these kids the president described the wounds he saw in the hospital their arms were torn off they're bleeding out. a minute is life and death in this case. rachel: geraldo you saw the cnn town hall. in that town hall sheriff israel was very quick to point that marco rubio and dana lash at the nra and yet he sat there knowing what we now know his own officer s did not do. geraldo you know, i've been working with the broward since the 80s. i did a program called america in vice with them i know the department very well. this is a disappointment to me. i think that when the analysis is done of the combat performance of the broward sheriff's department in this case it will be we fully viewed by even objective observers. this was pathetic by all
6:06 am
accounts. this was not, you know, we've been, you know, so accustomed to hearing how our gi's or our first responders grab the flag and charge into the action where they go into the rubble or they go into the fire, their firefighters do. this seems the opposite. this seems, you know, coffee and doughnut kind of department, more used to just getting by and piling up overtime and not really risking an awful lot. here 17 of the most fragile constituents of these cops parished at the hand of a lunatic kid gone crazy it's just very very distressing. griff: geraldo president trump weighed in at cpac talking about the nra and background checks. take a listen to what he had to say. president trump: there's nobody that loves the second amendment more than i do and there's nobody that respects the nra. they're friends of mine they backed us all they're great

people but the great people but we really do have to strengthen up, really strengthen up background checks. we have to do that. >> [applause] ed: geraldo what do you think about what he's saying there? geraldo: well i think he's absolutely right. here is a kid, i mean how does this kid whose lost his parents whose the subject of all these 911 calls and all these fbi tips and still he can go and go buy a gun. it just doesn't make any sense. you know, they look and see if he has a criminal record. no criminal record. does he have a drivers license that proves he's 18 years of age okay so you can buy an ar-15. it just doesn't make any sense . this is the second amendment gone crazy. i think the president is absolutely right about background checks but there's much more than that. i really do believe that this juvenile assault weapons ban that the president has talked about is crucially necessary. it won't eliminate the problem. it would have stopped this particular kid though and i think we've got to take small
6:08 am
steps and we've got to be brave and i think that the president was very brave in bringing up the raising of the age from 18 to 21 in front of the crowd at cpac. the president, let's face it he's a great speaker. he's very compelling. that crowd adores him and i think that this is the president , just like it was the unlikely nixon who opened up china, the hard line president opened up china. i think that president trump will be the president who gets meaningful reforms and stops and with the help of people like governor rick scott at the state level, i think that this will be done. they will be able to resist the overwhelming almost irresistible pressure that the nra can apply when people want to cut down on so called gun rights. ed: we're going to see if he's the person who could say look i respect and love the nra and love and respect the second amendment but i want sensible reforms here whether he's the leader that can bridge that divide but the other question

now on another big issue he talked about is immigration geraldo and here is what he said at cpac about trying to bring together these factions. president trump: the senate democrats and the house democrat s have totally abandoned daca. they don't even talk to me about it. they've totally abandoned it. it is republican because we want to do something about daca get it solved. the democrats are being totally unresponsive. they don't want to do anything about daca. i'm telling you, and it's very possible that daca won't happen and it's not because of the republicans. it's because of the democrats and frankly, you better elect more republicans, folks, or it will never happen. rachel: geraldo i love how he's reframing this to tell the truth that is republicans who want daca and not liberals. you spoke with the president last week about this issue. geraldo: there were two thins the president wanted to talk
6:10 am
about at our dinner at mar-a-lago last saturday night, a week ago today. one was gun control and the response the appropriate response to what happened in the parkland massacre and the other was daca. the other was immigration and he is and expressed to me how frustrated he was with chuck schumer and the democrats in terms of negotiation. what i suggested and this is me speaking now not the president, what i suggested is rather than having an omnibus kind of approach to this negotiation with the dream act kids and you know remember he wanted a four- prong system wanted an end to chain immigration, he wanted e-verify and other strengthening and then he also said that he wanted the wall obviously and then in exchange to that he would give 1.8 million daca kids a pathway to citizenship. i said mr. president make it simple. just get your wall which was the central tenant of your entire campaign, the voila long the southern border, get the $25 billion in a trust fund over
6:11 am
five years whatever it is you guys negotiate that, so it's the wall and now, give the 1.8 kids a reprieve. keep it simple and is there anyone you can talk to about it, he took it as he did the age limitation on weapons he took it under advisement. i wouldn't be surprised despite his harsh tones at cpac that next week, you see a simplified strip down, a skinny daca compromise because we are running out of time. rachel: that's true, but geraldo if you don't close those other loopholes you'll have another daca wave every seven years. thanks for your insight straight from the president's conversation with you, bright to our viewers thanks a lot geraldo turning now to your headlines. an armed woman is behind bars after ramming her van into a security barrier at the white house. the secret service paying jessica ford was carrying a pistol when she intentionally did the act. they've arrested ford twice before trying to climb the white

nationwide wrestle with what kind of gun reform or changes to gun laws they might be comfortable with, president trump came to cpac to try to reassure them that things like beefing up background checks or raising the minimum age to buy a rifle should not be seen or interpreted as a gun grab. president trump: most of it's just common sense. it's not do you love guns, do you hate guns? it's common sense. >> [applause] president trump: it's all common sense and some of the strongest advocates about what i'm saying are the strongest advocates i know them very well. political people, the strongest advocates for the second amendment. >> the mostly college-aged crowd at cpac was mostly on their feet for the president's entire speech which officials to us was only going to make news regarding north korea but of course that would have only been if you would have stuck to the script. president trump: i don't know how he could have done any

6:24 am
people on the president's big cpac moment. lee carter is a polster and president and she joins us now to break it down. so we're going to show a clip this is actually one of my favorite sound bites from his campaign trail this one about faith. president trump: above all else we know that faith and family, not government and bureaucracy are at the center of american life, we know that. >> [applause] president trump: because in america, we don't worship government. we worship god. >> you know, this was one of his most memorable moments of this speech but also from the campaign trail. you saw republicans gave this an a plus independent to b plus and even democrats gave this a c, and that was fascinating because the democrats don't often give him much more than a c, and this is a subtle dig at the democrats philosophy so i thought it was fas nateing and shows on who the side of the american people.
6:25 am
rachel: even democrats like god. >> that's right. rachel: we've got polls on that so the other thing he talked about was arming teachers in the classroom. take a look. president trump: these teachers, and i've seen them, at a lot of schools where they had problems these teach turpitudes love their students and the students love their teachers, and these teachers are talented with weaponry and with guns, and that's, they feel safe and i'd rather have somebody that loves their students and wants to protect their students than somebody standing outside that doesn't know anybody and doesn't know the students and frankly, for whatever reason, decided not to go in even though he heard lots of shots being fired inside >> so you can see the republican s gave this an a minus independent to c and democrats an f. what was very notable there was everybody was on the side of the
6:26 am
teachers but as soon as he said some of these teachers are very talented with weaponry and with guns you saw that dial take a nose dive and part of the reason is that people are saying look i don't want to give teachers any more responsibility i want them to be teaching my kids let's figure out how to keep them safe separately but i think that the point of this is being missed what he was trying to say is that listen if teachers want to carry weapons and keep students safe they should be able to. that's not what's coming across and really turning off independence and democrats. rachel: he needs to cleanup that messaging for sure. so here is another clip this one talking about a compassionate culture. president trump: we also need to create a culture in our country that cherishes life and human dignity. that's part of what we're talking about a culture that condemns violence and never glorifies violence. >> [applause] president trump: we need to force real human connections and turn classmates and colleagues into friends and neighbors that want to fight for us. >> this was a really really
6:27 am
interesting moment republicans gave this an a, independence a b , and again democrats a c. but a lot of democrats said they liked this, the issue is a beautiful message but not saying much of anything and what people really want to hear is the action. people want to say what are we going to do they want to hear tangible steps moving forward while they agree with this in principle what will we do about it? rachel: as a conservative what i hear is that dignity of life and that is a conservative message. so this was a really great light -hearted moment, a lot of people's favorite moment of his speech take a look at this president trump: what a nice picture that is. i'd love to watch that guy speak i try like hell to hide that bald spot. doesn't look bad, hey we're hanging in. >> [laughter] you gotta love this so the dials were slow to react but you can see republicans and independence gave this an a, while democrats gave it a c minus and they just don't like the president even when he's being funny and republicans and independence
6:28 am
were like i love the fact he can make fun of that and really just lean into everybody criticizing his hair. rachel: he seems so likable maybe what the democrats don't like is that he was likable who knows i know we can't psychoanalyze these numbers, but very interesting. thanks for joining us, a lot of insight as always. coming up, the debate over guns has been front and center after the florida massacre, politicians have their ideas but what about every day americans? we have a town hall panel for a very important discussion coming up next. and, president obama is keeping his latest speech a secret, so what's not so secret any more. how much his public library is going to cost taxpayers. that's not a secret. >> ♪ ♪ ♪ are you reluctant to eat in public because of your denture? try super poligrip® not only does it hold for 12 hours

griff: that's deputy white house press secretary earlier on fox & friends talking about getting congress to act on gun legislation, we're back with our panel, kesha, vincent hill, dr. dianne hess, and kevin kelly a group of experts from attorneys to police officers to professors. guys i don't think of you would disagree that more must be donald all across the country families sitting down over the dinner table talking about what should be done, what actions must be taken and i want to open it up to you. what should be done? who wants that? >> well i would say definitely we need more gun control laws instead of focusing on the money that politicians receive from the national rifle association and the money the national rifle association makes by producing so many guns and having so many guns in the country we need to focus on these lives that are being lost and there shouldn't be people shouldn't be allowed to possess semi-automatic rifles if they're not combative in a
6:34 am
soldier, or military or police force so i think those types of restrictions need to be in place griff: vincent you're a police officer what do you say about that? >> yeah, so i think we can all agree that something must be done but i don't think focusing so much on gun control is the answer. we need to start training people more of how to deal with this how to react to it faster because at the end of the day if i get dispatched to a shooting i still have to respond and while i'm responding, lives are being lost so we need to start teaching how to react how to react faster and how to deal with the threat. ed: do you want to weigh in? >> i agree but i do not think they're mutually exclusive. i think that we know gun control woks and other countries have done it in australia banned assault weapons and had gun buy- outs by the government and bought the guns back they have no more school shootings since the last school shooting was in i think 1999. we have a law that congress passed in 1996 prohibiting the cdc from studying gun violence in our country.
6:35 am
$1.6 billion goes into traffic research, motor vehicle accidents only in the last 10 years and only $10 million has gone into gun violence. these ak-15s rip apart children. they cannot be saved. if a bullet from an ak-15 hits your liver it's incinerated. the radiologist from florida wrote an article this week about the damage these rapid semi- automatic and automatic assault weapons do. these people cannot be saved. it's not like being hit with a gun or bullet from a revolver. your organs are being taken out and nobody should fear going to school because they are killed that's how i feel. ed: but you can buy an automatic weapon, kevin you're nodding your head what do you want to say? >> yeah, i think the issue we look at is we need to look towards our own communities and they are the first responders in regards to enacting laws what's best for their communities so if we look at rural communities, they may not have first responders be able to respond within 30 minutes so as the
6:36 am
president has alluded to, maybe we can act programs where some teachers may become marshals, we've seen deployed in texas. i don't want to inhibit communities from their choices and their options, listen the federal government cannot have a one-size-fits-all solution for this problem especially look at what's happening south side of chicago and a mass shooting where there are thousands of mothers that have lost their children over the years and we need to figure out solutions in our own communities. griff: you're a political science professor but if you could simply go to congress and talk to those politicians what would you say to them? >> what i would say is what our research clearly shows which is that any time this debate is gun control and you find a liberal attack on the second amendment right the policy goes nowhere so we have to refrain the debate. its got to be an issue of public safety. how best to allow guns to stay in the communities in a safe way and we do know that there are other countries following up on what doctor said which have exactly the same level of guns
6:37 am
but far fewer violence. we have to take a lesson from that. we do have to do a lot more research but we have to refrain the debate. you need to look at it in the same way we did automobile safety. there are common sense reforms from universal background check and other things that can be donald i'm hopeful more than i have been in the past after these shootings in part because of the young people who have been out there but also in part because the president and the congress are less threatening to gun owners than the obama administration was and i think that maybe a way to move forward griff: okay then let's have a show of hands who believes that something, congress is going to pass something this year and do something? raise your hand. >> i'm hopeful but i think it's incremental. griff: but why, why does that happen? >> look at happened in florida this week didn't they vote down gun control right after the shooting? i mean you'd think that that state would be outraged and they voted it down so i'm not so hopeful. i wish i could be. griff: very quickly -- >> and my point is mainly it's

6:45 am
neil: it's funny because it was his first opportunity ed as you know to talk about those wild disruptions in the market because he's right. prior to that we were going up up and away and a lot of people said he would have to eat his words with the correction and some feared a lot worse. i did get a kick out of him saying he's been waiting for it to go down and hoping that it would but look, i mean it was a good way to deal with it and the volatility that's there by putting a spin on it like giving seven years, see what happens, obviously looking at a second term there. it was ronald reagan as you know who famously said after the 87 crash judge me after all eight years and the market was higher than when he came in. ed: so the dow closed way up yesterday for the week and as you say this fluctuation you can't base it on one day or one week but we've heard so much of the geniuses who said that president trump couldn't get elected in the first place republicans are going to take a bath because of historical trends and they are heading into political headwinds in these midterms so let's not hide that fact, however because of what you just said not just with the
6:46 am
markets but republicans getting things done like tax cuts maybe immigration and infrastructure coming up big maybe underline that word, could they push back on those headwinds and put this coalition of elected donald trump in 2016 back together in 2018 to at least maybe fight to a draw? neil: you know, it's interesting what i think what's been the problem with the markets is the good news for the economy and the fact that that is what's prompting this, you know, backup in interest rates. that's what brought concerns about whether the federal reserve will intervene and that we're responding to good news so that's good. the battle i think in this on again and off again sort of, you know, struggle, is whether the good news is just good news or the good news could be bad news and then at least higher rates and offsets all of the advantages we've seen from lower tax rates it's too early to tell but generally markets are quite easily in an increasing rate
6:47 am
environment as long as they don't go too high so i think what's the conundrum for the financial community is we know rates are going up we know this news good and we know a lot of americans are getting a lot of money in their pockets even the corporate tax cuts that are being shared with millions of workers so all that's great. we're just concerned that rates not go too too high. they're going to go high, higher , certainly not back to the fears we had in the early 90 s. griff: so neil what's great is what's coming up on your show. what is it? neil: we're looking at the whole fallout, not only in the markets we've made up bottom line about two-thirds of the losses we had but the fall out from all these new revelations we've been getting and you've been reporting on so far as well from that florida school and shooting and what authorities knew and when they knew it and now talk that three officers now in general refuse to go into the school during this shooting. there are a lot of questions being asked that we're going to
