have one card. jillian: we got to go. thanks for watching. tomorrow morning we will be here. rob: happy thanksgiving. ♪ ♪ i bet my life ♪ i bet my life for you ♪ brian: how many people in this group again? steve: imagine dragons or down in broward county? i think thousands. there are four in imagine dragons. you are absolutely right, brian. donald trump waking up at mar-a-lago. last night he went to sunrise, florida. actually that's the most democratic part of the state of florida where hillary clinton won 66% in that county for a big homecoming rally. emily: welcome home to the president. the new resident of the state of florida. interesting in that county though it, has, i believe, the second highest quantity of registered republicans. it's a really interesting
3:01 am
county politically. a tonge fans excited about him last night. brian: sure he will be excited the city of florida. a welcome basket for him. major part of that community, eventually. either in one year or four years when he is done. meanwhile, the president has got a message, too. he took on impeachment with the turkey pardon. and he took on impeachment at the rally. let's listen. >> will the president of ukraine declared that there was no pressure put on me. he is the only one that matters. it's a scam. it's a hoax. the radical democrats are trying to overturn the last election because they know that they cannot win the next election. it's very simple. because i'm fighting for you and because we're winning. very simple. in cheers] >> and fupght to see what corruption looks like, then
3:02 am
take a look no further than slow sleepy joe. the crazy democrats are going down in a landslide. americans have so much to be thankful for. the economy is booming. wages are rising. crime is falling. poverty is plummeting. confidence is soaring. and america is stronger than ever before. [cheers] >> big crowd there big ovation. he says the dem's sinister plans are failing. being revealed. he won solidly he said the last two weeks. he claims the polls show more support for him than the democrats. and, of course, regarding impeachment, right now the intel committee is writing up their report and then the judiciary committee is going to open up hearings on wednesday december the 4th. emily: right, despite that fast pace. dragging on for a lot of
3:03 am
americans. the president when he cited the fact that public polling has remained basically unchanged. going into the impeachment inquiry and right now the support for really is the exact same percentage. it suede apparently no one. brian: a couple of things happened. he gave an interview to bill o'reilly last night. one of the things he said is, i don't know what rudy giuliani was really doing in the ukraine. that was on his behalf. he had other clients, too. i know he was going to go to the ukraine. then he called one of them off. so he seems to be distancing himself a little bit off of rudy giuliani's investigation. also, it turns out that two omb officials resigned after the delay in the release of the funding. so, that was given in testimony that was released yesterday in transcripts. >> over the last week or so we have been talking about how there have been many different suggestions from people on the political left on more envirmingtsfully friendly ways to celebrate. thafing. last night the president was talking about somebody who was apparently talking about
3:04 am
changing the name of the holiday? watch. >> as we gather today for thanksgiving, some people want to change the name thanksgiving. they don't want to use the term thanksgiving. that was also with christmas. now everybody is using christmas again. buff now we are going to have to do a little work on shifing. people have different ideas why it shouldn't be called thanksgiving. everybody in this room i know loves the word thanksgiving and we are not changing it. brian: i don't think there is a huge push to change the name of thanksgiving, is there? steve: i think it was in 2015 there was a rumor that barack obama wanted to change the name of thanksgiving. but that was debunked. so, perhaps what he is talking about is just all these stories about, you know, your core bon footprint and the amount of energy you use to travel over the river and through the woods to grandmother's woods. brian: skype her and not show up at all. steve: grandma wants to see you. she wants to go like that.
3:05 am
you're such a big boy. brian: mostly italian. grab a cheek and twist. steve: that is a universal grandma. emily: in that name we're expressing gratitude and whatever historical call con connell: notations. give thanks and gratitude for our loved ones. brian: maybe this will be the loved one cranberry sauce that didn't retain the shape of the can. steve: i have a cookbook. brian: new one coming out. steve: not for a year. you are thinking about the last one. you are having a flashback. pete hegseth is at the flashback diner in boca and you talk to some of the folks at the rally last night. right? pete: later in the program talk to some folks in here. we were at the rally. sometimes you have to step back. here we are a year away from
3:06 am
the election in a deep blue county on a tuesday night in a stadium that packs 21,000 and they were packed with 3,000 outside. and we talked to folks inside the rally for a couple of hours. what struck us is over and over again these are people that have not been involved in the political process before. they don't go to political rallies. a lot of them are former democrats and they love this president. here's what they had to say. >> i used to be a democrat once upon a time. and i see that they did nothing for us. he does everything for america. >> support him more today than when he was elected or where has his response. >> i think his support has gone further up. >> he has energized america. i love what he is doing for this country. >> he wants to make this country great for people. >> 401(k) has gone up. the dow is up. >> i support president trump. and i care that he is really loves america. pete: because he speaks the
3:07 am
truth. is he honest. is he genuine. pete: over and over again we heard he speaks for us. if you are a democrat in this 2020 field and you look at that there is not a democrat in america that could even fill the overflow of what the president did last night in a blue part of florida. an amazing demonstration of political strength. especially with all the nonsense going on in washington, d.c. we will talk to folks later on in the program. steve: all right. pete. i'm noticing you are wearing a t-shirt. i'm thinking it's probably because you got a brand new tattoo. pete: it is true. i got a brand new tattoo. it hurts. i can't wear a jacket. sorry, guys, you being stuck with this all morning. brian: how long does it hurt for. pete: it hurts for a couple days. it's got to heal. t-shirt time. thanks, guys. emily: people attending says he speaks to us.
3:08 am
comes off the heals this week -- the heelsthose who supd trump are a cult. there is a disconnect between identifying it like that and recognizing that people feel ignored and people feel disenfranchised people running this country. they do feel someone is finally listening to them. steve: trying to marginalize the people who support him. brian: you mention listening. comes to the democratic party. president obama goes on a listening tour. outside tulsi gabbard and i believe andrew yang. every democrat who is running for president or was running for president, visit president obama. he says my door is open. emily: except for biden. did he not. brian: they had a chance to talk. the president last time they talked was at elijah cummings funeral a couple weeks ago. politico magazine fascinating things came out about president obama. is he waiting to find out if someone is going to emerge. if something did happen and
3:09 am
bernie sanders emerged, he was going to take action. he also pointed out something about joe biden that was significant. look at this quote. obama pointed out to another candidate, not to joe. that during his own campaign in 2008 he had an intimate bond with the electorate. no doubt about it. especially in iowa that he no longer has, which is interesting. then he added, and you know who really doesn't have it? joe biden. wow. that is a body blow to the biden camp. steve: keep going. back when sanders seemed like more of a threat than he does now, obama said, according to ryan lizza of politico, if bernie were running away the nomination, obama would speak up to stop bernie sanders. no love loss there between those two, barack obama and joe biden. 2008 when barack obama swept the iowa caucuses that's when joe biden dropped out. now suddenly it starts to make sense. on his first day when he returned to pennsylvania, rather delaware to announce
3:10 am
that he was running for president in 2020. joe biden was asked a very simple and logical question by our political reporter. he's very tall. used to live upstairs at my house. and listen to the answer joe biden gave and now it makes perfect sense. >> if you are the best choice for the democrats in 2020 why didn't president obama endorse you? >> i asked president obama not to endorse. answered doesn't want to -- we should -- whoever wins this nomination should win it on their own merits. guys, guys, welcome to delaware. steve: i asked president obama not to endorse me. come on. who is going to believe that? he stood by his side, joe biden did, for eight years. that's a logical thing. hey, i'm going to run for president. can you endorse me? emily: you saw that when he entered the campaign there was a measure of uberous. he assumed obama would support him and he assumed the rest of the democratic party on that basis. we haven't seen that yet.
3:11 am
and clearly now it seems like there is a fisher. brian: doesn't surprise me that president obama didn't endorse. remember, you don't have to do this, joe. david axelrod and david plouffe the people around the previous administration don't seem to be at all by biden's side. they don't go out of the way saying nice things without endorsing and don't join his staff, which is birsz. steve: that's why obama did not endorse bide. because he does not think he can win iowa. all right. more on that a little later on. jillian joins us on this day before thanksgiving. jillian: good morning. we begin with a fox news alert now. at least three workers are hurt after a massive chemical plant explosion incident is flames shooting through the air near beaumont, texas.
3:12 am
this camera shows the exact moment the explosion happened at the plant. the giant fireball rocking homes for miles. this is a look at the massive fire still burning four hours later. homes within a mile of the plant are being evacuated. loved ones and officers say final goodbyes to a georgia deputy killed in the line of duty. narcotics investigator ridly shot and killed conducting a routine patrol at a von screen yens store in augusta. he spent 17 years with the richmond county sheriff's department. he was an army veteran, father and grandfather. hester is charged with murder. second suspect is charged with evidence tampering. 38 police officers have been shot and killed in the line of duty this year. now let's talk about extreme weather that's causing headaches as millions of americans hit the road for thanksgiving. as snow storms push across the u.s. traffic nightmares from the northwest all the way into the midwest overnight.
3:13 am
look at that hundreds of flights cancelled in denver yesterday. and at the oak land airport, a power outage during a heavy rainstorm left passengers in the dark for hours. and finally reports overnight of tornadoes touching down in louisiana and mississippi. janice dean is tracking august all of this and she will have that for you throughout the morning. now to this, upset of epic proportions in college basketball. top ranked duke stunned on their home court. time-out. they don't use it. yes. the lumber jacks have done it. >> this has got to be the biggest win in program history! jillian: unranked steven f. austin state university with a buzzer beater in overtime ending the blue devils 19-year winning streak against nonconference opponents at home. the lumber jacks celebration spilling over into the locker room as they doused their coach can gator aid. that is one for the record
3:14 am
books for that team. that's pretty incredible. >> i love the underdogs. steve: i wonder if they can do it again. congratulations. brian: now those kids are back in class this morning. steve: not today. brian: still ahead on our show, bernie sanders and elizabeth warren both pushing socialist policies on the campaign trail. what do voters think? the new polls showing bad numbers for democrats except for elizabeth warren. she is still smiling ♪ you can't always get what you want ♪ ♪
3:15 am
3:16 am
3:17 am
3:18 am
>> to those that would try to impose the horrors of socialism on our country, i say again tonight, america will never be a socialist country. ever. steve: well, not on his watch. there you have got president trump making that vow at his rally in sunrise, florida. according to a new poll most voters are rejecting socialism. when asked would you vote for a candidate who identified as socialist. 50 percent said no. 26 percent said. 24 percent said not sure. justin has kin joins us now. the author of socialism is evil. so i guess we know where he
3:19 am
is going to come down on this. justin, when did this whole thing start where, you know, even though the number is 26% say yes, that's a quarter of the country think that that's a good idea. >> yeah. a quarter of the country thinks it's a good idea. i think this began in 2016 with a lot of people who were frustrated with hillary clinton beating bernie sanders they feel like hillary clinton sort of represented the establishment ring of the democratic party. and they needed to have a purest, a pure socialist candidate take the mantel and that's what we are seeing in 2020 all these socialist candidates gaining lots of popularity within the democratic party even though they don't have that much popularity outside of the democratic party. steve: bernie sanders is clearly -- is he a democratic socialist he calls himself. but then you have people more in the middle and they support the green new deal
3:20 am
and they support medicare for all and support all those ideas that 10 years ago people thought that's never going to happen. >> i would actually argue that the vast majority of the presidential candidates right now are socialist candidates. they may not call themselves socialists they are in fact endorsing socialist policies. if you co-sponsored the green new deal and many of the presidential candidates right now who are running in the democratic party co-sponsored it, including elizabeth warren, you are a socialist without any question whatsoever. that is a socialist policy. most americans do not want socialism. outside of the democratic party, 50% of independents said they would not vote for a socialist. and even one in three democrats said that they would not vote for a socialist in this survey. so americans don't want socialism. they just don't know that the green new deal and medicare for all and those kind of policies are socialist policies. steve: ultimately, justin, a socialist and the party elders realize this on the left, a socialist cannot win
3:21 am
the presidency at this point in history. >> absolutely not. there is no chance a socialist will win if -- there is a big if here though. only if the conversation becomes a question choice between socialism and free ernestenterprise and socialism d free market. if that's the question then absolutely donald trump will be very successful in 2020. steve: that's why he framed it last night that way in his home state of florida. justin, sir, thank you very much. have a nice thanksgiving. >> thanks, you too. steve: first lady mum melania trump was giving a speech and this is how she was greeted by students. [cheers and boos] steve: tomi lahren said that would not happen in michelle obama was on stage.

[cheers and boos] hello, everyone: [cheers and boos]
3:27 am
steve: okay. that was yesterday in baltimore. joining us right now from the west coast we have tomi lahren, fox nation host. tomi, there was a lot of cheering in baltimore but it sounded like and according to news reports there was a lot of booing, too. >> well, yes. i think this is not only because, of course, she is melania and her last name is trump. but this is also just a lack of respect from young people. but where do they learn that from? where do they learn that disrespect? where do they learn it is okay to boot first lady of the united states? well, they learn that because they don't believe that they have to respect melania or anyone with the last name of trump because the media and congressional leaders and democrats have told them that they don't have to. that it's their moral right to do those things. so, this is an epidemic in this country. not just of people not liking anyone with the last name of trump. but just with young people being completely disrespectful. typically typically i thought she showed her grace too. look you are fighting with me but i'm fighting for you
3:28 am
there the office releasing a statement as well on the opioid summit saying we live in a democracy and everyone is entitled to their opinion. but the fact is we have a serious crisis in our country and i remain committed to educating children on the dangers and deadly cons sequences of drug abuse. your thoughts, tomi, on that? >> she handled it very, very gracefully. but she always does. this is the first lady who always shows immense grace and immense class every time we see her and especially when she is confronted with any type of disrespect. but, again, can you imagine if this were michelle obama or can you imagine if melania trump was a democrat or married to a democratic president? she is an immigrant and she is a woman. the first thing she would say if an immigrant woman was booed on stage is that is racist. that is sexist. that is anti-immigrant. that is bigotry. that is intolerant. because it's american melania trump, people feel as though they get a pass. it's wrong despicable. young people need to learn a lesson in this country, you just respect people. brian: whether she is first

lady first year or one more year. citizen as international model. she should be on more covers than jennifer aniston. she is virtually egg northward. then she is booed on stage knowing that every camera is there. but instead of speeding up and getting rattled. she keeps her calm, stays composed. is able to come bang and mee-come back andmeet up with ta little later on. everyone is pumped about your latest episode of no interruption on fox nation. with your permission, because you do have the rights, do you think so, tomi, i could play a clip and we could all watch? >> let's play it. steve: okay. here is scherie murray who is going to be running against aoc here in new york for congress. it was a slap in the face to all of the constituents when we saw aoc deliver socialism to america in her endorsement of bernie sanders for president. we need someone who is more focused on the policies that
3:30 am
better the quality of life than the limelight. and that's what we see in the current representative. >> i can't hear you. steve: we heard that tomi. apparently we have lost west coast connection. but, there is aoc at the gigantic rally. when her name was attached to bernie sanders rally on a saturday morning here in new york. 25,000 people showed up. so clearly, she is helping bernie. emily: watch all the rest of that interview and details on tomi's interview on fox nation. tomi, you can't hear us but happy thanksgiving. steve: that's right. brian: meanwhile, coming up straight ahead. peta has a brand new target they are going after the university of georgia bulldog. why they want the iconic mascot sidelined for good ♪ that kind of music just sooths the soul ♪ i reminisce about the days of old ♪ with that old time

3:36 am
in minority communities. your barbershop, your uber driver and so on that are self-employment tax would really help. and the people in the democratic party told me i sounded like a republican. they are not really interested in doing things that help uplift the community. and, you know, for the first time in my lifetime we have a president that understands small businesses and understands that if you empower small businesses, in minority communities, that they can create opportunities and solve some problems for themselves. pete: it's called the american dream and that's what you are talking about. absolutely. doctor, thank you so much. i appreciate your time. brian, you are a criminal defense attorney. >> yes, sir, here in boca, former democrat. >> correct. pete: when you look at the trial we have seen of what adam schiff has been doing. >> first of all, honey, happy birthday, i love you. i got that out of the way.
3:37 am
absolute what's going on double hearsay, triple hearsay. personal feelings. this is nonsense. but if the democrats want to keep on going forward with the impeachment disaster, the polls are starting it turn, you have certain democrats that are starting to splinter off, good luck. keep going forward. pete: as a former democrat, what is it about trump that draws you to him. >> common sense point a to point b in a very logical way. pete: brian, have you got us here in a very logical way. thank you very much. >> thank you very much. pete: i appreciate your time this morning. move over here to david. how are you doing? >> good morning. >> you are an investor. support the president. you saw the rally last night. what's your reaction? >> i just think he is doing great. his energy level, i think he is getting to -- defections from the democratic party stuarting to come in because i think his message is starting resonate. the horowitz report is coming out soon. lay a foundation. i think his kids are great and the entire platform is great.
3:38 am
pete: it was stark last night how many people first political party. a lot of them are former democrats. why are they switching? >> the overwhelming evidence is just his production. is he doing just such an incredible job. look at the list of things he is doing. where the stock market is unemployment rates. i think the trend for black voters is getting better. a lot of democratic defections right now. i think it's going to be a landslide. pete: turns out when you keep your promises people actually like that. thank you very much, david. now to silea. how are you doing? >> great. how about yourself? pete: celia is 80 which gives us all hope. you are fantastic. >> not until april but thank you very much. you look beautiful. it's been wonderful to have you at the diner this morning. >> thank you. pete: why are you a supporter of the president? >> well, first and foremost, i want to thank you for your service, pete. that's number one. pete: thank you. >> number two, i think people under estimate trump completely. his love for the country and what he has done for the country. and i think most people that
3:39 am
don't like him, they hate him more than they love this country. and that's a very sad thing. pete: very well said. your husband is cuban as well. >> yes. pete: he knows we don't want socialism in this country. >> exactly four tries to get here. on the fourth. he made it. i met him on the ca boat. steve: are you going to be asking everybody their age at the diner. brian: unbelievable. why would you do that? pete: i won't live that one down. she told me and we saw her and she is defying age. brian: seen around the world. steve: that's all. pete: now everybody knows how lovely she is. steve: we learned a lot. we also learned your second guest has sent a message to his wife. happy birthday. pete: it's family day on "fox & friends." steve: thanks very much for the live report from the

cultice. i did a little digging last night when we got the topic. he has a book out mall con nance has a book out forward written by 9/11 truther martin sheen and trying to promote it book has failed. i looked for sales numbers. unlike your books, brian, his books don't sell. ranch it up go. sensational when you don't have any substance. attack 63 million americans it makes file good for a moment. it's an insult to people's intelligence. emily: when do you think they will understand all that rhetoric does is galvanize the other side even more? >> hopely right after the 2020 elections. we need a moment of honesty in this country. the bthe binary choice is bad. far right, far left. most americans sit here in that window on the middle on different issues we vary for different reasons. religious, social, cultural, political, constitutional. why not appeal to those people. let them go as far as they want.
3:49 am
let the american people see this march towards socialism for some. dragging others even closer to worst leftist policies. let them keep going. after the 2020 elections they can all cry again. they can all start a new resistance. 63 million americans may well improve in number for president trump. steve: that part we just watched is the only part i have seen. but, knowing msnbc. you know, they are all in on this president should be impeached because he did all these things that are completely illegal. >> look. they are going to drive this again. this is adam schiff 2017 with chuck todd. i have clear evidence of russian collusion. there are all these points along the way. and they haven't delivered. so who do we care about for belief? i care about the american people. they don't buy it anymore. brian: here is what they find frustrating. they did this -- adam schiff lays thought case. jim jordan and others lay out their case and in the end nothing moves. they are so frustrated and you saw with adam schiff almost in tears in his
3:50 am
concluding sentence. they said the only thing we could do is say it's a cult. they are unable to understand the new information that we are able to understand. they can't rationalize any other way. >> how dare you, america, not think the way we tell you should think? this is what it is all about. they do a poll about black support, for example, rasmussen and i forget who the other organization is, and anna navarro comes out and says it must about v. been held in ben carson's home and sheriff david clarke and those two spandex ladies. speaking of diamond and silk fox nation. put you in a box and dare to step out. whether you are black, hispanic woman, older, younger, no matter. what and that, frankly, is going to be their downfall with americans. emily: you had such a good response to twitter on that. why can't you have the independence, the autonomy to speak for yourself? why is it that you need to be told how to think or how to vote? >> i have more faith in the american people.

>> the radical left democrats are trying to rip our nation apart. first, it was the russia hoax. and then you look the mueller deal. you remember that mess. and now, the same maniacs are pushing the deranged impeachment, a witch huntington. the same as before. and a lot of bad things -- because you see what's happening in the polls? they have a sick puppy. shifty schiff is sick. he made up my statement. [crowd boos]
4:01 am
>> to the ukrainian president. he made it up. nancy is on track to go down as the single worst, and least productive speaker of the house in the history of our country. steve: well, there you have got the president of the united states. it was a homecoming rally for him. first time he has gone back down to florida. he was in sunrise and broward county sings he declared that he would be a legal resident of the great state of florida. once he retires from the white house. brian: i mean, it's going to be pretty interesting because now jerry nadler is going to take the ball on tuesday when everyone comes back from thanksgiving. and now the judiciary committee is going to have. this doug collins, ranking member. and then you are going to see the president is going to send representation and invited the president to testify if he wants to. steve: they continue variety him, of course. emily: last night at that rally he got a lot of supportive fans and big welcoming to florida's newest resident. we heard today from pete hegseth who got a lot of comments who said the
4:02 am
president spoke to he was honest. he spoke to exactly how they were feeling. they felt he was representing them. they were supporting him in every way. steve: let's bring in sarah sanders. former white house press secretary joining us from little rock the day before thanksgiving. sarah, good morning few. >> good morning. great to be with you guys. steve: one of the things the president said last night is he said that essentially he has won the last two weeks of public opinion as the democrats rolled out their case against him impeachment wise. how does he say that? >> look, i think he has actually won more than the last two weeks. i think that the country is winning under this president. by any standard, that you want to look at, any measurement the country is better under donald trump than it was before. i think americans are sick and tired of the democrats coming to the table with no solutions and just simply trying to attack the president. as we have seen over the last two weeks. their big star witnesses didn't witness anything.
4:03 am
it just seemed like a ridiculous charade that adam schiff was parading all of these people in front of the cameras. and, frankly, i think people are tired of it. they want to see something get done. and they see that happening under the president and they don't see that happening under democrats in congress. i think it's a great contrast for the president. and i think it's the reason he is going to continue to do well. brian: do you think when he said i'm encouraging secretary of state mike pompeo to testify and mic mulvaney to testify, do you think he means it or is this a chess game? >> look, i don't think the president cares if any of thinks people have to go up and testify because he knows that nothing happened that was any wrongdoing on behalf of the administration. the president has been very upfront. he has been completely transparent throughout the process. they have put out the transcripts of the interactions that the president has had with the leadership in ukraine. and i think this is kind of a done deal and it's time to move on. and adam schiff has shown,
4:04 am
once again, that these fake investigations and these ridiculous shams he keeps trying to push on the american people are not going to work. emily: sarah, we wanted to get your thoughts on something trump said as well. on fighting the deep state he was standing up for three great warriors. take a listen. >> jewels this week, i stuck up for three -- just this week i took stuck up for three great warriors against the deep state. and you know what i'm talking about. i had so many people say, sir, i don't think you should do that. people can sit there and in air-conditioned offices and complain. but you know what? doesn't matter to me whatsoever. they are out in that field and they are doing the job for us like nobody else anywhere in the world can do. steve: so, sarah, you know, i'm talking about, i'm a little confused. when he is talking about the
4:05 am
deep state that he is stuck up against, is that the deep state at the pentagon? is it richard spencer who was fired before he could quit? what's he talking about? >> look, i think this is an example of the president's love of the people who serve on the front lines of the military. i got to watch so many interactions that the president had with the men and women out on the battlefield. this is the heart and soul of the country. the president credits them for all of us getting to live in the greatest country on the face of the planet. and he has such a deep respect for them that he wants to make sure that we're doing everything we can to protect those people, to preserve their right to go out and do their job. and i think that's what the president is trying to do in his action and his involvement in this case and in this process. steve: who is the deep state? >> that's a question you have to ask the president.
4:06 am
he has several people he has in mind. i don't want to assume who he is talking about. my guess is it's the people that work at the pentagon. that he feels, you know, aren't the ones out there serving on the front lines that may be sitting in offices over there, trying to make these decisions from afar. again, i think the end of the day, the point the president is trying to make, in the -- i think idea behind it is the president's love for the men and women who serve on the front lines and he wants to make sure that we are doing all we can to protect those people. and allow them to go out and do their jobs that allows us to have the freedom to live in america. brian: so we understand, too. the market was up again. the dow scored another all-time high. a lot of it. steve: 100th. brian: china said -- reached consensus on properly resolving issues. again inviting robert lighthizer and steve mnuchin to beijing. this is different tone from china. you know the president is a
4:07 am
negotiator. he is now laying back a little bit. the market likes this optimism. do you believe the president is going to be on board with a phase one deal? >> as long as it is a big enough phase one. i don't think the president is going to take some, you know, small level deal. it has to be -- include a lot of the big pieces that we saw in the original deal that went back to april. it's going to have to have some of those kind of key pieces that aren't just the trade and the monetary part of that. but, certainly have some of the protections against the abuse that we have suffered from so many years of china. i think it's got to have some of that accountability in there. brian: intellectual property theft. how do you legislate against illegal activity? >> look, i think you have to be willing to step back from the table if china doesn't hold up to their end of the deal. the president has shown he is actually willing to do that. unlike anybody that's come before him. they have simply allowed china to run all over us.
4:08 am
this is a president who has decided to stand up to china and say, look, america is going to continue to be the leader on the global stage. and i think a lot of other leaders before him thought that they could do that without challenging china. and this president, i think, is smart enough to know that either america gets to lead or china gets to lead and under him it's always going to be america. brian: they understand our system. i'm just wondering if china is reading that they think the president is going to win and they can't wait him out. i wonder if that figures at all into this new conciliatory gesture. >> maybe so, and he has made clear if they don't make a deal before and after he does win, which i think by any account right now he is going to run away. it will be a whole lot worse for them. i think they see how bad it already is and how tough he has already been that they don't want to take that chance. steve: yeah. >> switching topics now. tomorrow is thanksgiving. we understand that you have quite a large family
4:09 am
gathering happening at your house. and what are you most thankful for. share with us and viewers. >> i'm most thankful for my family and i will be able to sit down with them tomorrow and enjoy living life in america and getting to spend that time with them. it's been a crazy and wild few years. and so it's nice to slow down and get to have that time and we're really excited all to get to be together. don't worry, steve, i'm definitely making the pecan pies and i will have to pull my hammer out and get those pecans ready to go here later today. steve: that's right. sarah's world famous pecan pie which she took heat for from the white house press corps because it looked so perfect she uses a premade store bought crust. i'm going to reveal that she actually crushes the pecans with a hammer. right? >> yeah. trust me. it's the secret to the success because it makes it
4:10 am
a lot better on the top. and i think it also helps me involve my kids because my boys love to do the pecan crushing. that's their favorite role. steve: do you let the boys eat the pie? in your recipe you do put quite a bit of bourbon as well. >> i usually make two. one that the kids get to eat and some of my family members who don't like the bourbon in their pies and i make one that has the bourbon in there i balance it out. everybody comes away happy. emily: that sounds delicious. has been thanksgiving, sarah. thanks for joining us today. steve: before we go, are you going to run for governor? there was stories this week you were running for governor. >> look, we will see. we have a long time before we will even make that decision. our governor just got reelected in 2018. right now i'm enjoying being part of the fox family and spending time with mine.
4:11 am
brian: sarah sanders thanks very much. >> thank you, happy thanksgiving. steve: get out the hammer and bourbon. emily: headlines. jillian: i want to try that pie so bad. steve: it's so good. it's in our cookbook. jillian: you should make it and bring it. steve: i will. jillian: begin with a fox news alert. a live look at a massive fire at a chemical plant in texas. at least three workers are hurt after an explosion sent flames shooting through the air near beaumont. you could see it there. take a look at this doorbell camera footage, showing the exact moment the explosion happened at the tpc chemical plant. it was felt miles away. homes within one mile of the plant are being evacuated. still an active scene there also breaking right now, dozen of airline workers are arrested overnight as they protest across the country. airline catering workers are
4:12 am
demanding better pay, medical care and respect. the demonstrations happening as millions of holiday travelers flock to airplanes all around the country. the protesters briefly stopped traffic at lax in los angeles. and in just a few hours, the nypd will lay out the security plan for the macy's thanksgiving day parade. bomb-sniffing dogs. sand filled dump trucks and cement barriers will be used to keep millions of spectators safe. it's still unclear if those people will actually get to see the 16 balloons fly in the parade. officials will ground the balloons tomorrow if winds reach over 23 miles per hour. that's only happened one time in 1971. janice has been tracking. this says we are pretty close. we will keep you updated. how about this? oh baby. one single hospital is caring for 12 sets of newborn twins at the same time. it's a record for saint luke's in kansas city, missouri. >> having this many sets of twins has definitely been a different dynamic that we have not experienced.
4:13 am
jillian: all the twins in the nicu were born 5 to 15 weeks early. nurses say it's been very busy. makes you wonder what's in the water out there. steve: it's a great hospital. jillian: congrats to all of them. steve: indeed. lots of kids to keep track of. which one is bobby, which one is billy again? brian: doesn't matter. [laughter] meanwhile, president obama and joe biden campaigned together for years. new reported says president obama thinks joe doesn't have it for 2020. lawrence jones says. steve: this is really bad news for joe biden. as you can see, he is next on "fox & friends." ♪ ♪

brain brian most democrat hopefuls seeks the advice and guidance from former president obama making what politico calls pilgrim knowledge to meet with him saying his door is always open. doubting his own form are vp with one candidate he pointed out during his own 2000 wil2008campaign he had an e bond with the electorate,
4:18 am
especially in iowa. that he no longer has. do you know who doesn't have it? joe biden. you were an obama supporter early. what's going on here? >> i think he likes being the king maker. but i think when you have a bunch of candidates on the stage, and this has been a former obama supporter. thinking that they can back the president, anti-obamacare, they are so progressive. who is there to support but joe biden. joe biden is a train wreck. he can't complete sentences. this is a guy that flip-flops on every position. he is not electable right now. and so when you look at the field, you think of the best person to take on donald trump. and the most moderate. you say joe biden. but the guy really can't take fire. he can't pivot and talk about the issues that matter to most americans. so, obama is like i'm staying out of this. he told him in the last time how he really felt about him because hillary clinton got in the race. he ended up supporting her very, very early. and he didn't support joe biden. he didn't push him in to
4:19 am
being -- it run for president. and now this time right now, you hear joe biden saying i asked the president to not endorse me? come on, that's not really how it happens. the sources say joe, you really don't have to do this. brian: right. we is seen so far he has been less than stimulating. on the national poll and i know you win state by state. is he up. elizabeth warren loses by 8 points. buttigieg is up again. who is closest to carrying on his legacy? if it's not his vice president, then wh who? >> the only personal is joe biden. he is a train wreck. it doesn't take that much to distinguish yourself from the field right now. all of them are so far left. again, joe biden is still a moderate. when you look at it. but when you have a bunch of democrats that are on the stage that essentially saying they are anti-obamacare? do you think president obama is going tone doors a candidate that when it gets his signature legislation, no matter how terrible it was? brian: also when you talk about what's happening at the border. you don't like what president obama is doing. those cages were made during
4:20 am
the obama administration and talk about decriminal riding and taking down that wall. president obama is sitting at home going what are we doing? >> not just that but giving them healthcare as well. raise their hand -- oh, okay. despite all the many americans right now. we can't even get it right right now? for average day people? my momma has lupus and the healthcare insurance keeps going up and up. obamacare was supposed to fix that now you have democrats saying look, we already went through this with obama saying if you like your plan you can keep it. they are saying that now. you can't do that with socialismized medicine. sorry. brian: they thought they had that in beto o'rourke. he fell flat on his face. now do you believe that david axelrod and company, the coaches behind the obama double wins, do you think they are behind mayor pete? >> no, i don't think so. and the obama coalition has always been split. have you some of them that with kamala harris, you still have some of them with joe biden. have you something with o.o. o. some of them with pete buttigieg. it's a messy bunch. they fight each other.
4:21 am
axelrod has been holding his fire. if you look at his analysis lately. he is still talking about joe biden. and i think at the end of the day, the obama coalition, they will go behind joe biden because there is no one in the race right now. brian: just said mr. magooing it. david axelrod. >> it's bad. it's really bad. brian: lawrence jones, you are never bad. you are always good. >> thanks, brother. i appreciate it. brian: sometimes bad can be good. i'm not comfortable with that. you are really good. if you want to see more of lawrence, watch his show, keeping up with the joneses and man on the street. you see him all over with sean hannity, especially. all right, lawrence, have a great thanksgiving. meanwhile, three gold star families getting mortgage free homes for thanksgiving and our viewers help make it happen. how can you help those families even more. that story coming your way ♪ know you're not alone ♪ we're going to make this place your home ♪ ♪

4:37 am
going into it i decided i would never get a seat. i actually turned around. i support president trump. the reason is there is actually so much corruption in the democratic party that how can you vote for that? i mean, there has got to be justice somewhere and i'm hoping our new attorney general will do something about it. pete: i appreciate that. well-said. move onto the back real quick. bypassing so many wonderful people who we will eventually speak. to say sorry, we will get to everybody if and when we can i have got to talk to these two guys. i was out in the parking lot and pulled up in their truck and scared the heck out of me. hey, can we talk to you. they were both at the rally last night. tell me why you were there and why you support the president. >> well, we were there in support of the president. and incredible thing is seeing the diversity of people that were there coming together in support of our great president. what he has done so far in the past three years is just the most impressive thing we have ever seen as far as a president goes. pete: how about you? >> we were there for support. it was the best crowd we have ever met in my life.

4:47 am
of impeachment. steve: okay. does it? here to discuss as you can see right there former acting attorney general of the united states of america matthew whitaker. matthew, good morning to you. >> good morning. steve: did it really change that much? >> it doesn't. there has been so many headline grabbing district court opinions that ultimately are overturned or modified by the appeals courts. and i don't think this case is going to be any different. i think the american people need to understand that especially obama judges are very partisan and their opinions are oftentimes, especially here in the district of d.c., are against the trump administration for really partisan purposes. and this is one that's going to play out and it's very important, actual principle for future presidents. and if i was anybody in this democrat primary or anybody that's ultimately hoped they were going to be president in the next decade or two. i would not want this opinion to stand. steve: i just don't get what he would add to it. he left the white house before the president made the phone call.
4:48 am
>> yeah. what they are really trying to get don in on, mr. mcgahn. i know him well so i refer to him as don. they are trying to get him in on the attempted obstruction of justice as part of the mueller report. we are still doing that the american people need to understand that congress has so much other important work they could be doing. instead they are spending their time not only on the mueller report but on this trumped up other case. steve: you know, i have heard from people in washington that the democrats are in a pickle because they see that the polls are going south for them regarding impeachment. rather than impeaching the president, the house is thinking about the censuring him. >> censuring. steve: what would happen if they se censured the president, it's what. >> it would just be -- steve: and we justesen sured him. i apologize. it looks like we just had a problem with our satellite. matthew whitaker, we thank you very much for joining us on the day before.

minutes. the president of the united states, remember last couple weeks he declared when he leaves the white house he will officially be a florida resident. they had a homecoming rally how they billed it down there in sunrise, florida. the president spoke for 90 minutes. it was packed to the rafters. he said stuff like this. >> the president of ukraine declared there was no pressure put on me. he is the only one that matters. it's a scam, it's a hoax. the radical democrats trying to overturn the last election because they know they cannot win the next election. it is very simple. i'm fighting for you, and because we're winning. very simple.

5:03 am
show. keep in mind the intel committee in the house is writing up their report. then the house judiciary committee will be opening their hearings regarding the next steps i believe on tuesday and wednesday of next week. there is a great sound bite from doug collins from the great state of georgia. he puts it so succinctly. listen how he does this in the chat with sean last night. >> it is now time for jerry nadler to make chicken salad out of the schiff show. i don't see how that will happen. they have to take presumption, they have to take hearsay, nothing of quid pro quo, nothing this president did wrong, make it into some viable articles of impeachment to show the american people that he has done something wrong. what impeachable offense, is not everything from adam schiff and democrats attack ad successful president simply doing the best job for america. we'll start next week. get ready. brian: it is going to be
5:04 am
interesting, doug collins is watching us on the treadmill at this moment. steve: mr. collins. that was a great sound bite. making chicken salad out of the schiff show. brian: everyone was scared on the buzzer, ready to jump. emily: what did the american people think about, the new florida residents think about president trump's new neighbors? what did they think about it? pete hegseth is at the flash back diner getting voter reactions to the exciting rally last night. good morning pete. >> we're here at the flash back diner. we're talking to the folks later this hour. many were at the rally. so were we. step back a moment. we're a year out from the election. it's a tuesday night. it is district broward county clinton won two to one in 2016. you might think it would be a thin crowd. no, it was packed. 3,000 people outside while 21,000 inside hearing the president's message. we talked to the folks there.
5:05 am
why are you here? so many former democrats. so many people never been to a political rally before. a incredibly diverse group. here is what they had to say. >> we came here, a i'm a staunch supporter of trump. i grew up a democrat. i'm not a democrat anymore. >> i love him. i like to be surrounded by like-minded american people. >> he is doing so much for the american people. i appreciate that. >> come from a family of democrats and i just can't take the swamp anymore. >> given us money. he has giving it back to the americans. >> supports the military. he supports the people like us. >> the guy loves firefighters. he loves cops. he loves the military. i'm ex-military. a lot of ex-military. >> he supports the american people. he is like one ever us. pete: guys, that was a small sample of the same answers we
5:06 am
got time and time again. we didn't cherry-pick those. that was 100% representative of the people we spoke with, excited to be there. passionate about the president. even more so than voted for the first time. democrat looking at a rally in a blue county, you see the size of that crowd, that is some scary stuff. this crowd is pretty fired up to. they don't listen. i tell them to stay quiet. it doesn't work. brian: still hear you clear. good job, pete. we'll check with you at the bottom of the hour. steve: he made a good point. that particular county, broward county went to hillary, 66% versus 33% i believe. "new york times" with an item in the paper today, with sienna college. they did a poll. 2/3 of the battleground states they surveyed. the people there, 2/3 of the people in the battleground states who voted for donald trump in 2016, but then in 2018 voted for a democrats, now say they're going back to
5:07 am
trump. the poll also says that 7% of those who supported hillary clinton in 2016 now say they approve the president. brian: something else interesting came up in "new york times." it looks like peter king's retiring. my congressman. looking lara trump or donald trump, jr. to run for that seat. so i assume he would be loyal to trump as well. steve: you would think so, we'll see. meanwhile let's talk about 2020. one person who seems to be concerned about the field is this guy named president barack obama. a lot of people go to visit president obama. in fact every candidate and there are 17, not counting the ones that dropped out visited president obama, all except tulsi gabbard and andrew yang. they go and visit. they talk. he wants to know their mission, what they are going to do. he gives them advice what the trail will entail. i was shocked to two things that came out of that conversation in
5:08 am
"politico" magazine. steve: the article by ryan lizza, titled, waiting for obama. these are things that are getting all the attention. president obama pointed out that during his own 2018 campaign in iowa he had an intimate bond with the electorate. that he no longer had. then he added as he is talking to the candidate, you know who really doesn't have it? >> biden. that is extraordinary. brian: unbelievable. >> ryan continues to write, back when bernie sanders seemed like more of a threat than he does now, president obama said privately, that if bernie sanders were running away with the nomination, president obama would speak up to stop him. and clearly the conventional wisdom is that a democratic socialist cannot win the presidency. so if he was going to be it, president obama was going to, sounds like try to short-circuit it. brian: again, like hillary
5:09 am
clinton did and dnc to stop bernie sanders. i don't blame them. >> that was rigged. brian: if i'm in the democratic party, wait a second earn any, you're not in the democratic party, using our apparatus, system, money, ewing our ideas, run as independent. number one. number two, with joe biden this is another disto his running mate. joe you don't have to do this. convinced him not to run again hillary clinton last time. hasn't endorsed him this time. how will joe biden spin that statement today? emily: for a former president largely reticent for the entire field, for spy things to come and say that is tremendous. speaks to the fact joe biden entered the race. he had a sense of hubris, assumed everybody would support him, association with the obamas, served as vice president. that falls flat. lawrence jones, fox news contributor and "fox nation" says biden is a weak candidate.
5:10 am
obama is staying out of this one. take take a listen here? >> who to support joe biden. joe biden is a train wreck. he can't complete sentences. this is a guy who flip-flops on every position. he is not electable. if you look at the field, best person to take on donald trump, the most moderate you say joe biden, the guy can't pivot and talk about issues that matter to most americans. obama is like, i'm staying out of this, he told him last time how he felt about him. joe biden i asked the president not to endorse me. that is not how it happened. the sources say joe, you don't really have to do this. steve: because you would extrapolate, former president obama doesn't think joe biden can win. emily: bloomberg entering the race, there are clearly larger, stronger forces at power here especially the donor class of the democratic party worried
5:11 am
about the pool and. brian: he went up again, leading with 24% of the vote, followed by buttigieg with 16. warren dropped precipitously, down to 14. i know it is primary by primary. it shows a trend. steve: that is politics. we turn to headlines. jillian joins us. jillian: a live look at a massive fire at a chemical plant in texas. at least three workers are hurt after an explosion sent flames shooting through the air near beaumont. they were just focusing the camera a little bit. this shows the exact moment the explosion happened at tpc chemical plant. it was felt miles away. homes within one mile of the plant are being evacuated. extreme weather causing

♪. brian: welcome back, everybody, the house judiciary committee announcing the next step in the impeachment process as it schedules a first hearing next week. in a letter to the president, committee chair jerry nadler says, the hearing will quote discuss whether your alleged actions warrant the house's exercising its authority to adopt articles of impeachment. now they're advising the president to participate but what do they expect to uncover with more hearings? gop congressman mark meadows joins us to weigh in. we're talking during the break. you said there will be four witnesses, three on the democratic side, one on the republican side. what are they going to say? >> well i mean what we do know is they're going to try to lay out the case for impeachment. really not talking about factual evidence. it will be more like a law class. they will come in and say the president's actions warrant impeachment. we'll hear from three democrat witnesses. only one republican witness. so they're talking about a fair process. i don't see anything that is
5:19 am
fair. one of the things we do know. the democrats have now issued more subpoenas than bills signed into law. that fact won't change. when you see what is happening they're not focused on things american people care about. we have a transportation bill. do you know how many transportation bills they put forth? zero. next time you hit a pothole, don't worry about it. i have a subpoena from the democrats. brian: that and usmca. prescription drugs we thought you agreed on. you haven't funded the government. that is a bit of a problem. >> you're exactly right, all the things the american people really are focused on, the things that we were elected for, the things that the democrats ran on they haven't been focused on that at all. they're talking about impeachment. they're talking about bringing in professors, having a history class. listen the american people are seeing through it. the polls are moving toward the president's side of the ledger
5:20 am
and ultimately what this comes down to is, the american people are tired of it. you are tired of it. i am tired of it. but what we understand is, in november of 2016, they elected donald trump to be president. they get to go to the polls in a little less than a year. why are they involved in this sham process? brian: so, we, if it does get to a vote, if there is a vote, for impeachment, you would assume it is going to pass to get over to the senate side. we'll see where that goes. how long do you think this portion of the hearings will last? you have one day you hear from four and then what? >> they will probably have another hearing with the actual report that adam schiff and his team are right now drafting and putting forth. they will give that to the judiciary committee the week of december 2nd. then you will have another series of hearings, probably impeachment vote right before christmas but really there is
5:21 am
not any new evidence. in fact the new evidence that keeps coming out is actually supportive of the fact that the president made the right call on ukrainian aid. brian: lastly, what about censure. democrats say back off, we made the point, let's move on? >> we started to hear that some. i still think the vast majority of democrats are going down the impeachment rush but as they start to get back home and listen, they start to see that really the case that was supposed to be the smoking gun was really not that. and the american people are saying listen, don't remove this president. brian: hard to imagine getting 67 votes in the senate anyway but do they want to be on the record with the impeachment? mark meadows, thanks so much. have a freight thanksgiving, sir. >> thank you, brian. happy thanksgiving. brian: meanwhile, 21 minutes after the hour. congresswoman tulsi gabbard telling fellow democrats not condemning hillary clinton after she suggested that the 2020 candidate is a russian asset.

5:27 am
bots, other ways of supporting her so far and, that is assuming jill stein will give it up because she might not but she is also a russian asset. steve: that was a little over a month ago. tulsi gabbard reigniting the feud, calling out hillary clinton again. watch this. >> the danger here of what she did and how the media responded and how almost every single other candidate for president refused to comment, refused to denounce what she said. the fact that that was, that was the response is really, it has a chilling effect on our freedom of speech in this country. steve: here to weigh in, nationally syndicated radio show host dana loesch joins us from texas. dana, she makes a good point. the fact that none of the other democrats and denounce what hillary said just makes it
5:28 am
possible to smear somebody and you know, there doesn't seem to be much pushback. >> no. and i think that's right, and happy thanksgiving to everyone too. isn't really also anybody whoever criticized or opposed hillary clinton basically are a russian asset at this point? this really demonstrate how horrible a tactician hillary clinton is and tulsi gabbard, even though i want to remind everyone, some conservatives like to celebrate her, she is super far left. we have to remember this. this is good strategy for tulsi gabbard. for the most part she was sidelined after the debate she took out kamala harris. she was on the sidelines until hillary clinton brought her back in, accused her a veteran being a russian asset. now tulsi gabbard is looking to get herself back in the headlines. it's a good strategy. she realizes she will not be the party's nominee. she can't really take on trump but what she can do, try to
5:29 am
build her base further on the left and go after who the left sees at establishment candidate which always to them was hillary clinton. emily: right. she can highlight the fact not only is that party going through a civil war. but essentially, you know, how unpalatable it is to the average voter, see someone who served our country, regardless of their party come unattack from their own party, from quote, unquote the leaders in that establishment. >> right, emily, that's right. the media focuses when it happens on the right but don't pay that much attention to it when it happens on the left and i think it is more important because what we're talking about is the fight for the soul of the democrat party. this is not the jfk democrats anymore. we're seeing full-on socialists that are taking the lead in the democrat party. it will fundamentally, irrevocably change the nature of the party from here on out. you can't undo it once it is formalized. ultimately what tulsi gabbard is
5:30 am
doing here, she is not just going for 2020, but what happens to the leadership of the party once they lose. i believe democrats will lose in 2020. once that happens, what will happen to the leadership? barack obama's influence is starting to diminish. hillary clinton is kind of laking stock within the left. so what happens to the leadership at this point? people like tulsi gabbard are ones going for the reins. steve: stay tuned. dana loesch, thanks for joining from us texas. have a wonderful thanksgiving. indeed. meanwhile, kids, have you heard? toys "r" us is back. we'll take you there live to that location next. emily: and what are voters in florida saying about president trump's big rally last night? pete hegseth is having "breakfast with friends" in boca raton. we'll check in after the break. ♪.
