kicking off the all-american road trip. the first stop is dollywood. >> >> now is the wrong time to tell "fox & friends" i'm scared of roller coasters. ♪ i love this life. steve: will locash sang this song on this program it is the thursday edition of "fox & friends." today is dollywood. brian: i will tell you my idea which could get us bigger ratings. steve: not possible. brian: take some of these bands and play them all together all the different bands and you get to see all our different hairstyles and how great would that be? we have had everybody on. ainsley: just play video of everybody you have made famous? brian: right.
3:02 am
everyone we told them to stay with music and we roll them out. how great an idea is that? steve: that is one of the highlights of our summer concert series because we have the biggest acts and entertainment and tomorrow we have scotty mccreery because brian thought it was a good idea. brian: go on "american idol" and become famous. ainsley: i know florida georgia line you made famous. steve: hold it. the biggest one was taylor swift u she started on this program when she was 15 years old. brian: didn't we have hannah montana on? steve: mollie cyrus. brian: anyone could book miley sirus but you booked hannah montana. ainsley: sarah huckabee sanders was talking but who the president is considering revoking the security clearance of the former cia director john brennan because he was going on national television and accepted a job at nbc and
3:03 am
msnbc. the security clearance has been revoked by president trump. steve: why did he do it? everybody is speculating. the president himself told the "wall street journal" last night that the president holds john brennan among those responsible for launching the whole russia trump colluded business which, of course, the president denied. keep in mind and we have heard about this a couple of times. it was back in the summer of 2016, that guy, right there, who at the time was the cia director, went to harry reed whos was the top senator on the democratic side with the dossier. he showed him the dossier. harry reid wrote with a letter to james comey saying hey, the fbi has got to investigate. this and then the fbi did. so, in other words, it started with brennan. then harry reid and then james comey and that's how we got to where we are a number of investigative reporters like kimberly strossel say. brian: he is an inflammatory pundit who has a rich history in intelligence. and it made the president concerned and others concerned that maybe is he going to use some of his
3:04 am
intelligence access to go on and attack him with it. so the president took action. sarah sanders made it official. >> mr. brennan has recently leveraged his status as a former high ranking official with access to highly sensitive information to make a series of unfounded and outrageous allegations while the outburst on television about this administration. mr. brennan's lying and recent conduct characterized by increasingly frenzied commentary is wholly inconsistent with access to the nation's most closely held secrets and facilities, the very aim of our adversaries which is to sow division and chaos. brian: here is he what said, john brennan, when this came out and no longer has top security access which i don't think he was using. this is part of an effort by mr. trum
3:05 am
it's the way he said it the way he delivered it and what he knows that had this administration extremely concerned u. ainsley: mark levin made an exlengths point on sean hannity's show. this has nothing to do with free speech. listen. >> noble is stopping brennan from speaking. in fact nobody could stop. he has a big mouth. he will never shut up. the right that he has access to information because he served in the obama administration at the cia is a preposterous argument. who else is president looking at. comey was a leaker. he be a sconsded with government documents when he left. mccabe is under criminal investigation. guy under counter intelligence investigation for misconduct. his security should be pulled. james clapper committed perjury. bruce ohr, another one, pulled. united states, anotheyates nort. not because he has a problem
3:06 am
with democrats or liberals he has a problem with these people. steve: are there others? we have a big screen with a bunch of faces that are familiar. a number of them have been fired by the finn. they have been demoted, clapper lied famously in front of congress. it's interesting. jim jordan said yesterday if any of them still have clearances they should lose them. joe digenova said it's a glorious day for america. an evil man has lost something he is not entitled to as you look at some of those who still have access to clarified information. finally, john kennedy, the republican from louisiana had, perhaps, my favorite sound by the of th bite of the y yesterday. he said regarding mr. brennan i called him a butt head and i meant it he is giving the national intel community a bad name. that is a quote from mr. kennedy. brian: you know where he felt because he was the right hand of president obama and became president obama's cia director when he couldn't pass the first time. i'm going to talk with
3:07 am
anthony tata, the author of "dark winters" he will be with us to talk about the impact here. is this an for example of freedom of speech or tired of hearing the cia director sound off knowing he has access to things at the highest level. steve: it's at a back, i think, because the president thinks that john brennan launched the whole investigation. and now he has his chance to do something, boom, he did. ainsley: meanwhile, the governor of new york, andrew cuomo shocked the crowd when he rebuked the president's make america great again slogan and the crowd gasped. listen to. this we are not going to make america great again. it was never that great. [. [laughter] brian: they they're to cheer him. they couldn't cheer that. did he just say america is never that great. he has to quickly walk that back because the blow back
3:08 am
became overwhelming. president trump hears this and tweets this out. we are not going to make america great again, it was never that great is he quoting what he just heard. can you believe this is the governor of the highest taxed state of the u.s. andrew cuomo having a total meltdown. democrat, republican, you should be offended by that statement. steve: absolutely. the press secretary came out from the governor and says the governor believes america is great but maximum greatness was still yet to be achieved. he also tweeted. brian: really, nice try. steve: listen. they have to spin it. they are in a hole on this. what would you say would be great again would not be great at all? we will not go back to discrimination segregation, sexism, isolationism, racism or the kk. like new york's motto says excelsior. every one yard not backward. ainsley: let's hear what the
3:09 am
governor of new york, 12 million immigrants came to ellis country island because of this great country. listen to what he said again. >> we're not going to make america great again. it was never that great. [gasps and. [laughter] steve: ironic thing is when he ran for governor in 2010, he put out a video announcement, according to the "new york times." and what does he say? together we can make new york great again. so it was great although he said it was never that great. brian: as you know, he has had a hard life he grew up the sownel of the governor of new york married a kennedy and became governor himself after working the clinton duration. obviousladministration. corey bookie saying something savagely wrong. fundamentally wrong. elizabeth warren our law enforcement are racist front to back and governor cuomo. the democrats are really on the same page in many ways.
3:10 am
good luck on that debate. ainsley: we want to know what you think send us your comments at would defeated communist japan, radical islamists. we ask our men and women to go overseas and sacrifice so much for this great country so we can be the land of the free, the land of the brave. we are the most generous country in all of the world. yes, we have our faults because but because of this country our world is a better place. we are great. steve: communism and japan and so many other things as well. here's the thing about andrew cuomo though. i think he wa channeling donald trump. he got under his skin a couple days earlier. i talked to andrew cuomo he says is he not going to run against me oh, please, do it. the governor came out and said i don't have private political conversations with the president. brian: i worry about our country if that resonates. if people are listening to andrew imom mow. steve: people gasped, i
3:11 am
don't think so. brian: people hearing that and reading it in newspapers if they still get them delivered wow, is he singing my song. i'm worried about it. a lack of appreciation where we came from. because we're not perfect doesn't mean we are not great. we are one of the only societies that continues to try to get better. steve: but it was never that great. that's the part that really riles up a lot of folks. as ainsley said a moment ago, let us know what you think at brian: i'm sure great jillian. do you think he would say you were never that great? jillian: i don't know what he would say that comments was so out of left field. you wonder where that comes from you wonder what else. news we are following. fox news alert. will hold up in a building in kabul firing off shots. police say the situation isn't s. under control. isn't known how many attacker there's are or if anyone is dead.

3:49 am
testify and is he worried he will be exposed. steve: because then it would expose the fact that democrats funded it and hillary was involved and that would have happened almost two years earlier than right now. talking about the dossier though and you just mentioned mr. brennan. brennan got his security clearance yanked yesterday. one of the reasons it sounds like the president told the "wall street journal" that he holds him responsible for launching the whole trump-russia collusion narrative. >> chapter 6 is how john brennan as the cia director was the instigator of the russia hoax. did he more than anyone damage in propagating false intelligence in the dossier. he has proven he cannot be trusted with national security secrets. he has leaked before. and he would be prone to use current intelligence to damage trump and jeopardize national security. he should be nowhere near cia headquarters. in fact, he ought to be banished from washington,
3:50 am
d.c. steve: so the president was right to pull the security clearance on him? >> absolutely. you are supposed to be nonpartisan apolitical as cia director. brennan never was. he was acolyte and sycophant of hillary clinton. he was using this false intelligence to damage trump before the campaign ended and to help hillary clinton because he wanted her to be president. steve: right. nobody would ever know because hillary clinton was supposed to win. but then donald trump, as it turns out won, and now we are starting to know more and more. >> as you pointed out at the want to hour it was very devious maneuver by brennan. he goes to harry reid on capitol hill and together they council one this plot, if you write a letter to comey we can leak it to the media alleging trump-russian collusion and that's exactly what they did. steve: check it out. it is called the russia hoax. it's available everywhere. gregg, thank you very much. >> steve, thank you.

4:02 am
critic and his hands possibly are so dirty in this russia investigation, president trump has had enough and revoked the clearance yesterday. ainsley: that's right. the white house said that brennan has a history that calls his credibility into question. the president has a responsibility to protect classified information and who has access to it. steve: that's right. online right now there is a brand new op-ed nit "new york times" written by mr. brennan radarring the president's motivations. and he writes: mr. trump clearly has become more desperate to protect himself and those close to him, which is why he made the politically motivated decision to revoke my security clearance in an attempt to scare in to see you lens others who might dare to challenge him. actually, the president of the united states spoke to the "wall street journal" last night. and he said the reason that he pulled the clearance was that he holds mr. brennan among those responsible for starting the whole trump colluded with the russians and that's why he is

president business. we were just talking to gregg jarrett who has the number one book in america right now called the russian hoax. he said it all stuarted with john brennan. john brennan took the dirty dossier, went to harry reid and said hey, did you see this? and then they figured out, you know what? i'm going to write a letter to the fbi director, james comey, saying that the fbi has got to do something, so they did. and they did. brian: there is a theory that's the reason why the fbi got involved is the cia one orchestrating the fbi to get involved with the london based christopher steele who had contacts in russia, whose intelligence was never verified but made it into the dossier, which brought forward the fisa warrant, which moved forward on the carter page investigation and now why have ongoing probe by robert mueller. ainsley: predictably the media freaked bought it, listen. >> security clearances have

never been used to punish people for speaking out. >> we should all be scared about the state of our democracy. they didn't just make a threat. it's a promise. they are snatching. john brennan's national security. >> we begin tonight with a chilling action taken by the president of the united states that looks something like something you might see out of a dictatorship or authoritarian regime. >> trump is under fire for nixonian enemy's tactics those are the words of some white house official after the white house is admitting it is retaliating against former cia director john brennan. >> interesting thing about the whole dossier and mr. brennan. mr. brennan in public has insisted that the dossier played no part in the intel community's investigation. but, at the same time it was just as president trump was coming into office that he did the briefing and he said and here's the evidence showing them the tots yea that there was collusion between your team and the

russians. brian: others on the list going to be reaffirmed perhaps or have those revoked this guy named james comey, comey, struck, page, ohr perhaps and maybe james clapper as well. ainsley: those under review as well. brian sat down with general anthony tata brigadier general and he had this to say. >> john brennanened is a clear and present threat of this nation. he needed to have his access to information revoked. when you look at his track record officially, he oversaw the iran deal and all the intelligence. he manipulated isis intelligence for president obama. he was part of the russian hacking. standing downtown cyber team. the president made the right decision in revoking his security clearance. steve: senator rand paul from the great state of kentucky tweeted this out i applaud president trump revoking john brennan's security clearance. i urged the president to do.
4:06 am
this i said earlier my gave right sound bite of the day was john kennedy, the republican from louisiana. i love the sound bite because it is actually a politician who says exactly what he is thinking which is rare in washington. he said brennan has been totally political. i called him a butt head and i meant it. he is giving the national intel community a bad name. brian: meanwhile and by the way no one stopped him he can still talk. he doesn't deserve access. ainsley: he isn't trying to silence. brian: he can still talk. he has a contract. he probably can't get a lucrative private sector contract without a security clearance. i always thought as we change gears, i thought we could agree how great the country was when the rubber hit the road how we want to continual that greatness and continue to improve. then out comes, i'm sure, future presidential candidate now looking for four more years as new york governor, governor andrew quom mole and his comments yesterday. steve: that's right. and as we play these, keep in mind, it was a couple of
4:07 am
days earlier that donald trump was in upstate new york and said you know, i have talked to andrew cuomo off the record and he says he is not going to run. oh, please run. clearly the president got under his skin, the whole make america great thing obviously has gotten under his skin. and that's why this sound bite is the sound bite everybody is talking about. here's the governor yesterday at a bill signing ceremony when suddenly he blurted this out. >> we're not going to make america great again. it was never that great. [laughter and gasps] steve: it was never that great. where does that come from? this is a guy that grew up in privilege. his father was a governor. he married a kennedy. how bad has life been that he looks around around says wow, this country is not that great. sea two term governor. he worked in the clinton administration. steve: is he a big powerful democrat who fancies himself a future political and perhaps presidential contender.

i would say notorious sharia supremacist preacher at a mosque in britain very important because the blind sheikh used to preach there as well. and the ideology that they preached is that muslims in the west should start enclaves or parallel societies where they both prepare for violent action against the host country and try to live their lives in accordance with strict interpretation of sharia. steve: that's what they were doing. >> low and behold 30 years knocking your head into wall. what we learned in 1993, if we learned anything in that trial, it was that this is an ideologically driven threat. if you pretend that the ideology is important. if you try investigate it without taking -- without considering the ideology because of political correctness, you are always going to be behind the 8 ball. steve: their attorney says, look, these were just devout

4:36 am
said this. steve: the headline is dear nancy pelosi, it's not about you, it's about your party and country. forget being speaker. and then what they do is essentially go through the list and they say look, at least 23 democrats need to gain at least 23 seats to win the majority to run the house for you to have the job. but you are such a polarizing figure they say 45 democratic nominees have already come out and said they will not support you. of the writing is on the wall. bow out. brian: this is a major bullet that the republicans have bring up the fact that most democrats want to be socialists and number two that nancy pelosi will be your speaker. and, guess what? democrats and democratic leaning newspapers are beginning to panic. this is what the editorial said. here is an excerpt. the republican party is now clearly the party of donald trump. the democratic party cannot be seen as the party of nancy pelosi. and win in november. do you understand what's going on in the media is

4:54 am
slaves weren't getting paid millions of dollars to pick cotton and treated with respect. if they were to take a knee at the plantation they would get beat to death. this speaks to a broader issue of the de rangement we are seeing from these athletes. i don't understand for the life of me why people can't perceive that standing for the national anthem is showing respect to this country, to the freedoms it that are afforded to us. we are in the greatest country on planet earth. i don'i don't understand why kareem would say this. i respect his basketball but his politics and logic are ridiculous. brian: what he is saying is we started on slavery. we had slaves helped build this country especially in the south. that's what took place. therefore, athletes who make up most of these football rosters shouldn't be forced to sing. so is he equating how our country started with 2018. >> yes. it's illegitimate. they are not force to have had sing. they don't have to sing. all they got to do is stand.
4:55 am
it's a policy. this is private job. when i was a police officer in my uniform, i couldn't go and take a knee because i was mad about what barack obama was saying about police officers. i would lose my job and get fired and couldn't provide for my family. he has no excuse for his rhetoric and it's ridiculous. i say that 100 times. it makes no sense. brian: what about hockey players? that league is mostly white. if they were taking a knee for the national anthem, do you think there would be the same outrage? >> no, nobody would care. this thing is about racism. i will say that again. just because you are black don't mean you can't be racist. the oppressors. hot are oppressors? is he talking about white people. that's continuously dividing our country. that's what america is about and that's not what we are made of. these players are the top 1% earners in this country. if they really had a problem they could fix the situation in their own communities based on the money that they make and they are doing it voluntarily. nobody is forcing them to play football. it is a privilege and an honor to play in the nfl.
4:56 am
and if they don't like it and feel so oppressed how about they switch positions with other people who would take that opportunity and take advantage of it and make it better for their own communities. brian: lastly, real quick on their argument, their argument pause we are the 1% we will look back 99% of the black community who don't make the money we have or have the ability we have. what do you say that to that. >> it's 99% of the black community. most black people are in the middle class. a small percentage of the community that these players have come from a lot of them that they could afford dibbably go back and fix. instead of taking a knee, which does nothing, go to your communities and do something about it. brian: gotcha. brandon tatum always good to hear from you. thank you so much. >> thank you. brian: straight ahead, john brennan taking a new jab at donald trump security clearance he did it in editorial section of the "new york times." we will bring you that at the top of the hour. todd piro kicking off a brand new series the all-american summer road trip. he stops in dollywood. he needs a break

colluded probe. ainsley: white house, sarah huckabee sanders says brennan has a history that calls his credibility into question. the president has a responsibility to protect classified information, who has access to it. rand paul agree with it. jim jordan agrees with it. brennan does not. he wrote a op-ed in "the new york times." mr. trump is desperate to protect himself and close to him, why he made a politically motivated decision to revoke my security clearance in an attempt to scare and silence others who might dare to challenge him. brian: it is not true. he doesn't like you. your comments are hardly befitting of a cia director. you sound like a 3-dollar pundit. the president indicated in "wall street journal," i don't trust many of these people on the list, the list we'll go over in a second. i think they're duplicitous. not good people. often times the president will let us understand something else is coming down the pike might reveal more john brennan was

5:36 am
second-level delegation. maybe that he will reopen those talks. i particularly am optimistic about europe and mexico. i think that is going to be reassuring. but i just want to say this, look, my messaging this morning, there are so many weird things in the newspapers and in the media. the single, most, important political story, this year, by far, is the economic boom that virtually no one expected to happen. and indeed no one thought would happen except outside the administration. i want to make that point. that is the political story of the career. it is going to continue right through to the election. an economic boom, 4% growth are recent numbers. we can go through this as much as you want but here's my second point, this is going to have a huge impact on the november midterm elections. i know there is a lot of issues out there and so forth and, god knows we're not going through all of them but look, it is
5:37 am
going to have a huge impact. here is a factoid for you, here is a factoid. after tax, after inflation income, think of it as paycheck income, take-home pay to use ronald reagan's, that is a key political economic indicator, it is moved up from 1% only when potus took office to over 3% recently. any political scientists tell you that is the one to watch for elections. i think because paychecks are rising, the economy is growing unexpectedly, the gop will keep the house. keep the congress. that is my take. steve: larry, i don't know if you read "the new york times," i read the reason things are booming because of a combination between donald trump and the great situation barack obama left the government with. >> i love this story, i just love the story because, all my friends who worked in the obama administration, and i have a bunch of them, told us
5:38 am
repeatedly, we could never grow faster than 2%, ever. that was their mantra, okay? now we're growing at 4%, they're saying obama should take credit. in other words, we couldn't grow at two but, uh-oh, we doubled that to four. so we'll give credit to our man. no way. give donald trump some credit for lowering tax rates, rolling back regulations, trade reform. let me add one, the numbers keep rolling in, that's what's so great. consumer confidence numbers, record high and rising. small business confidence number, record high and rising. large business confidence, record high and rising. we're going to see a big number in the third quarter. the atlanta fed is already predicting over 4%. that would make back-to-back 4%. all i'm saying you can't say on the one hand -- these are pals of mine, used toe come on my tv show, you can't tell me on one
5:39 am
hand it will be never better than two, if we double that to four, we take credit for that even though we told you it couldn't happen. it did happen. it is the story of the year. it will be big election impact. brian: president obama blamed president bush for at least three years, maybe six. ainsley: larry, another big story, the headline, the crowd was shocked, when andrew cuomo, the governor of new york, stepped up to the microphone, he was signing this bill, the crowd was shocked when he was rebuking the president's slogan make america great again, when he said this, listen? >> we'll not make america great again. it was never that great. [shouting] ainsley: it was never that great, nerc was never that great. what is your reaction? >> you don't know andrew would say that even his own crowd starts booing him. i have no idea. he is gone off the tracks on
5:40 am
this. can i insert? i don't like to do partisan stuff. i knew andrew cuomo's father, mario cuomo. long time liberal democratic governor. he was a class act. served in the military. no matter your disagreements with mario cuomo, you always got along with him. mario cuomo loved america, fought for it. steve: he was living the american dream. >> why andrew would make a horrible statement like that is beyond belief to me. i just don't get it. brian: yeah, similar, i know you don't like to do partisan stuff, cory booker said something savagely wrong in the state of america. bernie sanders says there is something fundamentally immoral and wrong in nerc. elizabeth warren says law enforcement is racist from front to back. hard to get past this. this is extreme language about our own country.

>> i know. i it reminds me of the '80s, when i was down here working for president reagan because the democratic party in those days was very far to the left in '80s. they always blamed america first. jean kirkpatrick gave famous speech to the gop convention, called san francisco democrats who blame america first. you are seeing a repeat of that. i will say with my limited political scope it is not going to work. the story, again, i don't mean to repeat, the story this year is an economic boom that virtually no one expected. steve: sure. >> frankly whatever you think, president trump, who is completely revised our policies on lower taxes and regulations and energy and trade, you just got to give him credit. no more punishing success. no more attacking business. look at these confidence numbers. there is new management in town. i think it's working, i really
