government, and pay taxes, if you don't, they will put you in jail. be careful. we'll follow it on fox news, throughout the week, praying for you in harm's way. always fair and balanced, not the destroy trump media, let not your heart be troubled. laura ingraham standing by. big show tonight, laur a. >> laura: we do. word to the wise about hurricane, fantastic show with the developments, thank you, sean. >> sean: have a good work. >> laura: i'm laura ingraham, "the ingraham angle," monitoring hurricane florence, it is a category 4 storm that is expected to smash into both north and south carolina on thursday night around our show time, we'll provide an update later in this hour with important information you do not want to miss. plus, former chief strategist steve bannon is here for a rare and exclusive appearance, he'll comment on that internal war at the white house and share exclusive footage from his new documentary, "trump at war."
11:01 pm
tennis star melts down, i'll explain why serena williams got it all wrong this past weekend, and i'll be joined by former tennis great himself. first, the n.f.l. fumbles on the anthem again, the focus of tonight's "angle." last may n.f.l. owners announced policy requiring their players to stand for the national anthem or remain in the locker room during the anthem. anyone kneeling or protesting would be fined. but what a difference a few months make, the n.f.l. has now announced it won't implement its own new policy. this weekend kenny stills and albert wilson of the miami dolphins took a knee during the anthem of the season opener. their teammate robert quinnstood with his fist in the air. what penalties will they face?
11:02 pm
none. an n.f.l. spokesman tells sports illustrated the status quo continue as productive discussions are ongoing on important work of social justice. you might have forgotten this all started back during the obama era, in about august 2016. that was when kaepernick refused to stand in a preseason game for the 49ers. after that game, he defended his gesture saying, i'm not going to show up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color, this is bigger than football, there are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder. well, remember, kaepernick started on police brutality, but now this is morphed into broader movement the n.f.l. felt it had to support n. an attempt to appease the protesting players and put the cabosh, the league
11:03 pm
committed $100 million to social justice initiatives. but where does that money go? their 73 million of it will be divided into three organizations, 25% to the united negro college fund, 25% to dream corps, left wing social justice group by van jones, goal to lower prison population by half and provide sanctuary to all, not sure what that means, and half of the 73 million will go to something called the players coalition. the players coalition was a nonprofit quickly formed by a group of n.f.l. players to guide the social justice conversation and receive any money that the n.f.l. might be willing to donate. get this, they have consulted with george sorros backed
11:04 pm
criminal justice groups and the liberal center for american progress, according to espn. cottalition is led by 12 players, but it was founded by malcolm jenkins of the eagles and anquon bolden. advocates for racial equality to voting rights. some players have withdrawn from the dream, michael thomas and eric reid, one of the first players to stand with kaepernick. reid trashed the n.f.l. money called hush money, and resigned from the player cosalition claiming malcolm jenkins told him the money would come from funds that are already allocated to breast cancer awareness and salute to service. so it would really be no skin off the owners' backs, they would move money from those
11:05 pm
programs to this one. we didn't agree with that because we weren't trying to cut other worthy programs. well, whatever the case, the n.f.l. thought it could buy its way out of any further controversy surrounding the anthem, but basically paying off patchwork of left-leaning groups. but it didn't completely work. on the broadcast side of the issue, increasingly liberal espn has decided it will no longer air the playing of the star-spangled banner at all before monday night football. i hope colin and company are happy with that. the fans aren't. viewership of the n.f.l. season opener, at least, was down 13% from last year and reached the lowest rating for an opening game since 2009, they did better yesterday, though. i have a better idea of all this, if the players or n.f.l. were truly concerned about making life better for minorities in the united states, why not consider dropping the
11:06 pm
political chip on your shoulder and consider working with the trump administration, i know you might not like his tweets, i get that, but i have a question, are you aware of president trump's openness to criminal justice reform? >> president trump: working together, restore the rule of law, keep dangerous criminals off the streets and help former inmates get a second chance at life and a second chance that many of them will really succeed at, if only given the chance. america is a nation that believes in the power of redemption. >> laura: or willingness to commute the sentences of those with exemplary sentences like alice marie johnson. >> my message to president trump is thank you so much, president trump, for taking the time to really look at my case and look at me. as i said before, i promise you,
11:07 pm
president trump, i will make you proud. >> laura: i love that moment. of course, president trump's policies have made this the best time ever for black americans to find jobs. black unemployment is at stunning and record low, currently at 6.3 or 6.5%. although the president disagrees with the anthem kneelers and we all know that, he also offered them an olive branch back in june. >> president trump: you should stand for our national anthem, you shouldn't go in the locker room when the national anthem is played. i am going to ask all of those people to recommend to me, because that is what they are protesting, people that they think were unfairly treated by the justice system and i understand that and i'm going to ask them to recommend to me people that were unfairly treated, friends of theirs or people that they know about and i'm going to take a look at those applications and if i find
11:08 pm
and my committee finds they are unfairly treated, then we will pardon them or at least let them out. >> laura: my question is how many n.f.l. players have taken him up on that offer? reached out to the president? well, maybe some have used back channels, i don't know, to not do so confirm the suspicion the anthem protest is more about ideology than -- and that's the angle. joining us with reaction is vera, president of the national organization of black law enforcement executives, along with retired n.f.l. star burgess owens, great to see both of you. vera, right to you for your reaction to the angle given what's happened over the past few years and where we are today, why not the players turn this into an opportunity to work with president trump, especially
11:09 pm
on criminal justice reform? >> thank you for having me laura. i can't speak for the players, but as far as the national organization of black law enforcement executives, we do support anyone's right to peacefully protest. we do see this as an opportunity to address some of the issues in criminal justice reform, as well as police trust and legitimacy, this opens the door for dialogue and conversation, as far as convo sating with the president, i can't speak to that. >> laura: burgess, why do you think vera is wrong, time for conversation and people getting together, set aside the issue of george sorros group helping advise the players coalition, could something good not come out of this? to not admit that, isn't that wrong? >> laura, i think your angle was spot on.
11:10 pm
we have an opportunity here to actually help those who are hopeful and unfortunately, i think our problem is, we have this group of black elitists, doing pretty good, living the american dream and spend more time telling young people how they cannot make it and tell them how white people stop them from being successful instead of reaching out and finding solutions. millions and billions represented by young players and not once have they come together and put together a conversation about entrepreneurship, hiring young people, telling young men to man up and stop desserting families, how about respect, a lot of things we can do. end of the day, left doesn't want that to happen. versus real solutions, that is what president trump represents right now, way to talk through and get some solutions, they don't want to come to the table to do that because he will get credit for it. >> laura: friday on fox and friends, the president addressed
11:11 pm
the anthem issue again. let's watch. >> president trump: i don't know why they are not enforcing it and in cases where they don't have it, they had a new thing, they don't have to do that, you don't have to kneel, cugo in the locker room, i think that is worse than kneeling in a certain way, going back in. that shows you have no respect for the anthem or the flag. >> laura: vera, what about that? black law enforcement association executives support peaceful protests, but then you had colin kaepernick wearing socks with police and pig on them and a lot of police officers i speak to and gotten to know many over the years, you know something, this doesn't make our job easier, doesn't help keep people safer in the inner city there is time for protest, when it comes to the national anthem, that should be a moment of unity for the country and patriotism regardless of differences or
11:12 pm
cultural disagreements. >> well, the national organization of black law enforcement executives, our membership, we do not feel like that was an attack against law enforcement. we feel like it has brought attention to very important issues. >> laura: what issues are those? >> criminal justice reform, as i think i just heard the gentleman speak about going into the neighborhood, making a difference, talking to the young people. our organization, as well as other organizations are doing that. we are trying to get out and give the message. >> laura: you didn't need colin kaepernick. did colin kaepernick kneeling for the black anthem get the black police officer executive association to go out in the neighborhood? burgess, police are out in the neighborhoods all the time, they are getting disrespected by people who are taught to hate police, sadly, both, black,
11:13 pm
white and latino police officers tell the same story. i get it, people are frustrated, i understand it, protest is fine, but it seems like just common sense we're missing here in this conversation. common sense. >> it comes down to this, you are right, message going to the black community, anti-american, anti-white, anti-free enterprise and you see that developing in young people have no idea how to break out of it. i want to talk about the n.f.l. end of the day, it is management, might not be owners, but management decided this is a good deal for them, they are globalists, they have figured out way to be $27 billion over next nine year necessary global fashion, all they have to do is put on face of marxist, left-leaning countries love to embrace the n.f.l. and dename the all-american brand the n.f.l. had in the past. this is a long-term process, we -- >> laura: they wanted to get rid
11:14 pm
of the problem and minimize the problem for sure, but i can turn my radio on, there are a lot of ticked off fans out there. both of you, i appreciate it. the new orleans advocate says well, he is ageless at age 37 and still getting it done as tight end for the saints, tough game last night. mark ingram says he is so ripped he looks like the under armour manikin. ben watson, great to see you. how you doing? >> doing well, how you doing, laura? >> laura: doing good. under armour manikin, i saw that, has to make you feel good, even if you had a tough game last night, you heard the angle, ben, your thoughts on where things are now given the $100 million almost the n.f.l. has given over to various groups, include thanksgiving players
11:15 pm
coalition? how do you feel? >> i think the bigger thing we're missing in this whole conversation, the fact what colin did was one tick along the long spectrum of players and americans concerned about what is going on in this country. everyday people, fathers, brothers, sisters are concerned when they see things happen on television or maybe they experienced something themselves, what colin did brought a lot of attention, this is one thing along a long spectrum. cottalition, look, tomorrow we're having a listen and learn tour in new orleans learning about criminal justice, educating ourselves, hearing from grass-roots organizations and hearing from people able to vote because of a law passed in the state of louisiana, so players are engaged and want to learn and players want to advocate. i heard burgess say something about what guys are not doing. i'm a father of five, i live here in new orleans, i'm in a locker room with 53 other guys
11:16 pm
from various places around the country and go into communities and encourage young people, tell them they can do whatever they want to do n. my house, i tell my kids, they can become whatever they want. >> laura: awesome. >> i'm also real with them telling them there are certain challenges they will face because of the color of their skin. >> laura: well, this is what eric reid said, obviously supporting colin kaepernick early on, a free agent, i guess hasn't been signed, which is tragic, he's a really good player, but why he left the players coalition. november 2017, when we agreed to be part of the players coalition, we were under the impression it would be our organizations, it is malcolm and anquon organizations, nobody else has a stake. malcolm wants us to invest, i call it donate to company that pays salaries for his staff. again, we would have no equity. what is your reaction to his
11:17 pm
ongoing complaint about what happened with this players coalition, where a huge amount of money is going into concerns about where that money is ending up, who is getting what and what audit is being done and all that? >> well, there is auditing, it is official 501, all that stuff is right. the n.f.l. wouldn't be giving money if they didn't know where it is going, that is taken care of. eric, he is, i'm glad you mentioned he is a great player. he is great and should be in the league. he and malcolm have dealt with their differences, this is september, that was months ago. i will not comment on where they are, i believe they are in a better place. again, where we are now is different. players are poised to make a difference and that is exactly what we're going to do. >> laura: did you need dotination from the n.f.l. to be involved in your community? a lot of you guys do a lot
11:18 pm
already, did it before colin kaepernick and after colin kaepernick. again, looks like from the outside and the more left-wing critics and people on the left who think you guys were bought off like this guy steven crockett, at the root, i'll put up the full screen. says, malcolm jenkins sounds like man who turned his back on harrie t tubman. please stop calling malcolm jenkins the face of colin kaepernick kaepernick's. you were too quick to take the money instead of continuing the protest and standing against what the n.f.l. owners are all about. you are getting hit by both sides, the left and the right, i guess. >> honestly, laura, i can understand how from the outside it may look that way. on the inside and you understand that generations of players
11:19 pm
coming to this point and moving forward are going to be concerned about the issues that all americans should be concerned about, you understand money being donated was us and the n.f.l. coming together and negotiateing that and willing to support the cause. i think we can learn a lesson from what happened here because of on the outside again, when you watch the news and hear tribalism going on, there is a lot of back and forth, but no communication and what we've done, come together to communicate, understand things, learning about it, they want to support our initiatives. >> laura: i get it. why not work with president trump, he's doing criminal justice reform, prison reform, he's reached out to you guys, given an olive branch, you have ideas, bring to my committee and i'll consider them. last word, briefly. >> this is president of the united states, he has ample resources, gone through thousands and thousands of people who need pardons. we wrote an op ed about systemic
11:20 pm
change, not just a pardon here and there, although that may be great if that happens. >> laura: i get it, ben -- i get it. >> broader than that. >> laura: i get it, but why -- >> on his willingness. >> laura: okay, what i'm saying, they are doing prison reform now and he is expressed, i played in the angle, desire, perhaps which ticks off a lot of conservatives, to do a broader criminal justice reform, he's bring nothing people, including van jones, who is getting money from the n.f.l., so why not forget the politics for a moment, we could get something done with this president, even with all of our differences on issues or his tweets, you know what i'm saying, come and talk to him. i think you would find someone who would want to work on a lot of things, that is my sense. final thoughts? >> after i get off this interview, please forward me the president's number so i can contact him directly and come work. as players, we are open to
11:21 pm
invitation from the president obviously and will work with him. for me, one thing, criminal justice is important because in the book of micah, walk humbly with your god. >> laura: i love it, great one. i will end it there. thank you, ben watson, we appreciate it. up next, bannon. >> thank you. a moment of joy. a source of inspiration. an act of kindness. what will it bring? an old friend. a new beginning. some welcome relief... or a cause for celebration. the help you've been looking for.
11:22 pm
what's inside? possibilities. what we deliver by delivering.
11:23 pm
11:24 pm
are running on. the democrats have nothing to run on, they resort to racism, xe xenophobe, and other things. >> record low. >> this election cycle is about highest steakes possible. >> this is armegeddon. >> laura: that is from the documentary of steve bannon and president trump's enemies are seemingly enboldened after release of details from the woodward book and anonymous op ed by senior administration official. bannon says president trump is facing what is essentially a coup from within his own white house. he joins us with more. see the film wednesday on one america news network, a lot of fun, 8 p.m. how you doing, bannon.
11:25 pm
long time no see. thanks for dressing up, you have your own clothing line coming up, black on black? >> steve bannon: i knew if i was going to come on the show, you would bust my chops, i deserve it. >> laura: military jacket, at war, in the military coat. why the film? why now? we've been at war from the beginning. >> steve bannon: trump has. i've talked about this for years, been on your radio show, you were on my show. trump has been at war with the permanent political class. eight months ago i start the film, feeling like it would be like the tea party movement, get people in power. for the base plus to get them excited and walking precincts, etcetera. you can tell, it's gotten big reaction already from the democratic left. >> laura: funny thing, it is coming out wednesday, when you had omarosa woodward and the
11:26 pm
anonymous column. some say it is all planned, i don't know if it was coordinated, you almost think it would be. everyday, drip, drip, drip. >> steve bannon: the film shows what president trump has been up against since day one and in the white house what he's up against. i think convergence of that book and anonymous column, it is evident, there is a coup. by general mcclellan, and the union army to thwart abraham lincoln, have you exact type copyright now. what was said in that anonymous letter is outrageous and the president ought to take action to find the conspirators. i don't think there is one author, there are many voices, i think you can tell the way it is written, much broader conspiracy than people think, i think probably six to dozen people.
11:27 pm
you ought to start doing what andrew jackson or abraham lincoln did, find out who is responsible and fire him. >> laura: broadway actresss are wishing john wilkes booth was still around, level of discourse and dialogue they blame trump for. he is the one that wanted to punch someone at a rally. >> steve bannon: i have a prologue in the film, five minutes long, if this was put into theaters, it would probably be x-rated for violence and language. what we did, went back to rallies and what antifa has done to trump supporters, show the violence. it is left is out of control right now across the bared r board. >> laura: is it by any means necessary? >> steve bannon: they are, any means necessary. they have cohorts in the administration and i think broader than the white house. remember what the "new york times" said was senior administration officials, what that means for the new york time system cabinet secretaries and deputies, major agency heads and
11:28 pm
assistants to the president, 40 or 50 people. >> laura: nikki haley came out with "new york times" op ed that said, when i want to challenge the president, i do so directly to his face and there was word that the president didn't like that that much, why do you have to write a column with that focus. again, it was fairly positive toward the president, but pointing out she disagreed with him on key issues. when i worked for the reagan administration it wasn't out there constantly you had perpetual in-fighting, people less conservative than reagan. more sense of movement. >> steve bannon: i don't know, when jim baker, toward the end of first term or second term, you had put in conservatives everyday. white houses are naturally -- >> laura: that is okay. >> steve bannon: opinions -- >> laura: that is okay, trump likes people with differing opinions and in the end, did
11:29 pm
michael cohen get -- gary cohen get his way on trade? no. trump did. >> steve bannon: i said to politico, president trump buy a million copys and air drop them. president trump had the right idea from the beginning and understands we're at economic war with china and bring all forces of government to bear in the economic war. cohen and porter and this crowd that fought him, the committee to save america, the book is typed-up notes. the economic war against china and afghanistan, in which the president was lied to and it was mislead about the cost of afghanistan and what type of control we had over the country that, is where mattis went, to bail themselves out. they were not up front and truthful to the president of the united states and so, if you look at, they say in there, he has temperament of a five year old, i told politico today, if that is a five year old, i want more five year olds on the
11:30 pm
national security council. this guy, in everything they say in the book about trade policy and economics, dead wrong. >> laura: obama taking credit for the economy. blue collar jobs, wages going up for lowest wage workers, they said it never happen, it is happening and obama taking credit. >> steve bannon: not just obama, bush administration. >> laura: and anonymous. >> steve bannon: anonymous are people from the bush administration and establishment, president trump is disrupter, innovator and this drives him nuts, because of his policy and what he's do suggest reorienting world supply chain back to the united states. mexico just cut a deal and the eu will cut a deal with you, korea and japan will cut a deal with us. he's winning. absolute economic nationalist. absolutely. you can tell what he's doing on
11:31 pm
trade, bringing jobs back, like he said. goldman sachs, investor relations department of the chinese regime. >> laura: they all bought into china. chipos china. >> steve bannon: they told trump, rise of china inevitable. like law of thermodynamics, law of physics that can't be turned around. trump said, that is not true. the book opens, they are stealing, taking off his desk, the deal about nafta and korea. trump didn't know, he got around to it, renegotiated nafta and korea and renegotiating in process of taking the supply chain back -- >> laura: why was omarosa hire? ed >> steve bannon: she was on the campaign, and very good. >> laura: effective, but boy. >> steve bannon: she did terrific job, we threw her into tough situations. >> laura: taping conversations. >> steve bannon: in hindsight, but rights making
11:32 pm
straight-forward decisions. >> laura: looking forward to seeing the film. i can't wait. >> steve bannon: go to trump at war dot com. >> laura: you can watch the trailer, if you haven't seen it. attacks on president trump seem more and more coordinated, as steve said, are they? a debate on that, next.

serena for were correct. could he have handle today differently, been softer and said something to her at the changeover and turned the mic off and said, listen, i can see the coaching going on, tell your coach to cut it out and maybe this wouldn't have started, perhaps. but, once it started, this was serena, it was a bad day for her at the office. you can't say that sort of stuff to the umpire, not these days. umpires are very professional, they have rule books. carlos ramos is known for keeping the rules straight. you've got to use your common sense here and back off when the times were getting bad. >> laura: and anthony, i'll go to you. you are a sports agent, you handle high-profile players. margaret court, record holder in tennis grand slams, grand dame of the sport, quoted saying, the rules are the rules and she
11:48 pm
doesn't like it when players try to pretend they are bigger than the game. your reaction? >> yeah, i think that serena was having a really tough day, she was more upset with the -- a little more upset what was going on against osaka, as opposed to what the refs were saying to her. however, this has been a tough year, getting random tests, random drug tests she felt were unfair coming off of her new child. remember, this hasn't been the sport that hasn't been so welcoming to her and her sister. when it came out, two black girls from compton, whole new look, they took the sport by storm. she felt this over the 20-year plus career. >> laura: she's a global super star. a global super star and there have been glowing profiles and john, you can chime in.
11:49 pm
lauded by everyone everywhere, the star still of tennis. osaka is probably the next generation, but i don't know, my daughter and i were watching it together. she's 13, doesn't watch tennis very often, she kept looking at me going, i can't believe she's speaking to the umpire that way and she doesn't really play tennis. john? >> look, i believe that serena and venus is the greatest sports story in history, what they have achieved, don't take that away from them, it's been unbelievable from where they came from and how their father predicted they would be number one in the world and they have achieved that, amazing. this was a bad performance by serena. could the umpire perhaps diffuse the situation better? perhaps. but serena, i don't think knew the rules, i don't think she realized she was about to get a game penalty, i don't think she
11:50 pm
realized three step to the rules which the umpire enforced correctly. she just lost it. you can't do that kind of thing, bad day for her. >> laura: and another -- hold on. another woman who has been obviously super star in her own right and day, i grew up watching martina navratilova, she said this is the sort of behavior no one should be engage nothing on the court. many times i was playing, i wanted to break my racket into a thousand pieces and thought about the kids watching and grudgingly held on to that racket, one of the greatest players who ever lived in women's tennis. anthony, close it out. >> like i said, she was more frustrated what was going on. i will say john mcenroe has done much worse. >> laura: this is not sexist,

protests, but not so good at diagnosie ining at-risk areas. on friday night we aired powerful town hall, incredible kudos, featuring officials and residents from the south and west side in search of solutions. many liberal activists will tell you, police are in part responsible for fuelling catos, the officers who face off with the murderous gangs beg to differ. >> first of all, we've had 2025 shootings in this city up to date, as of today. first of all, it started, it didn't start yesterday, it started several years ago, when decided to underfund and underman the police department. we have -- we are still almost a thousand policemen short where we have to be. >> laura: wait, a thousand police officers short in the city of chicago today?
11:55 pm
>> we only have half of the detectives that we need. we used to have 2000 detectives. >> laura: how many do you have now? >> just about a thousand. >> laura: what is the reason for that? what politicians say? we'll talk to them in a moment. >> you'll have to ask the mayor, our opinion doesn't count, that is part of the problem, that has to change. >> laura: we also highlighted horrific human and emotional toll this violence takes and a few examples more upsetting to the core and the cause of demetrius grif ith junior, 15-year-old boy reportedly burned alive after a gang tried unsuccessfully to recruit him. his aunt, mrs. sikes spoke to us about the murder. >> he wasn't in the gang, he didn't do drugs, what could he have done so bad a monster would take his lifelike that. two blocks from his home, we have to pass that block every

time we visit my mom. i can't go into the house without hearing him saying, t.t.i did this or that, he was looking so forward to high school, he only did two weeks of high school. he wanted to be on the swim team. he loved us. he loved animals. why would you do that? why would you burn someone alive and then why is there such a code of silence that you did not hear him hollering for help and did nothing? >> laura: no one saw anything? >> no one saw anything. >> laura: no one said they saw anything. did mayor manual call you? >> no, we have not heard from either one of them yet. >> laura: is that acceptable to any of you? >> no. >> laura: rather than staging protests, maybe the n.f.l. players, more and politicians should focus on safety, family, personal responsibility and education. some of them are.
