3:02 am
district voted for president trump in 2016. he had a five-point margin. he is now planning to switch parties as a sign of this democratic process may be falling apart. rachel: he has been showing signs of being unhappy with the impeachment process for a while. i'm surprised he decided to switch parties. i wanted to say, this is a man who understands what his job is as a member of congress who represents a district. he says my job isn't to like or dislike trump. my job is to exact as much goodwill and help for my district. ed: he has been outspoken about that. rachel: that is somebody who understands the job after congressman. pete: want a symbol how bad, how rigged this impeachment has been, democratic party lost a member of a caucus. i don't want a d next to my name. i want an r next to my name because of how unfair and dishonest this process has been. president trump tweeted overnight. thank you for your honesty, jeff. all the democrats know you're
3:03 am
right. unlike you they don't have the guts to say so. listen to turn to your staff and your constituents and democrat party, saying i'm done. i will be a republican, is a huge move and a huge risk for someone to do. if you're at the democrat side looking at this process, not only not gaining votes but we're losing members? that is a bad sign. ed: will democrats learn from it. maybe we should momoderate it? , no. they're lashing out. rachel: imagine what it will be like walking into the democratic chamber. governor of new jersey said he chose his political career over our constitution. this party switch is cynical and desperate. i'm confident a democrat that shares the values of our democratic party will hold this seat. i'm not so sure that is a good prediction.
3:04 am
ed: the governor and other democrats did a private poll, if he voted no on article of impeachment, he would not invite a democratic primary challenge, he would lose big time. they're saving he is saving his political hide, not reacting in principle. pete: look at statement from democrat governor of new jersey, cynical and desperate? people look at impeachment saying this is cynical and desperate. before the ukraine call half the caucus was committed to the impeachment. they're using the call as rationale, height of inthat system. ed: kevin mccarthy was on jot justice last night. democrats helped make nancy pelosi speaker and they may have buyer's remorse. >> he is welcome to join just as others have before when the party has left them. anyone who believes in freedom,
3:05 am
anyone who believes in the constitution, anyone who believes this new socialist democrat party has left them i want to tell jeff van drew he is welcome in the republican party. not just by me, by our conference. we would support him. we would welcome him to join. pete: remember when justin amash left the republican party. he didn't become a democrat. i am not defending him. he said i'm a democrat. water is warm for the republican party when you look at president trump delivered upon. if conservative democrat feels comfortable being a republican -- find me a republican feels comfortable being a democrat in light of that party. ed: democrat voted against initial inquiry, is colin peterson of minnesota. doesn't sound like he will vote for the articles of impeachment. rachel: no it doesn't. here is clip of him what he actually thinks about this process. >> the biggest problem i have with this is that you had people that have decided they're going to impeach him.
3:06 am
now they spent a year trying to figure out how they can make a case for it. that's backwards. you know. i just, don't agree with this. we don't have any first-hand information about what happened on that phone call. it is all secondhand information. the president has not committed a crime. ed: is that devin nunez or colin peterson? pete: quick reminder he is a democrat. he has been there for 20 years in western minnesota. he is an institution. he is tough to beat. a hugely pro-trump district. it is part of the reason why the trump team minnesota is on the table in ways national folks haven't believed. he has a tough challenger, michelle fishback who was on this program as member of the conservative squad. they're trying to create the alternative tiff to the so-called "squad." pete: very rural district in western minnesota. scales entire piece of the state. and, but listen, looking at tea leaves.
3:07 am
realizing this is a bad idea. ed: the question whether peterson, van drew, a one off or two off if you will or are there more democrats turn against impeachment, vote against the two articles. corey lewandoski a big trump supporter says more are coming. >> the democrats will lose between two and five members to vote against the impeachment proceedings. members in districts that donald trump won. there are 31 democrats sitting in the districts that donald trump won in 2016, that democrats won in 2018. so some of those members are going to vote pens the impeachment. which means this would not be a bypartisan effort. donald trump will not be convicted. there was no crime. he is going to win in larger margin of electoral college than 2016 america will continue to go forward with the largest economy in. pete: small correction, cory.
3:08 am
there were 31. now there are 30. democrats want ad wave of some republicans who are worried so bad it is impeachment. instead the wave is going in the other direction. you know see that. as we see resistance from the left which has not stopped since the day president trump got elected, we had a different picture yesterday. the outcome was not what our army folks wanted. army played navy. when the president of the united states, the commander-in-chief, the ovation was as strong as you can get. there he was walking out on the field for the coins to. rachel: i don't watch other networks besides fox news. ed: i believe that. rachel: when he went to the nationals game they made a big deal on all the other networks kind of reception he got. there were boos. i wonder if they play this clip with this kind of -- ed: tend to doubt it.
3:09 am
this is the third year in a row that the president has gone and he tweeted about how he will welcome navy because they got the commander-in-chief trophy coming after the big win. mark esper, the defense secretary talked to our own joey jones about protecting our servicemembers, what it all means. watch. >> are we doing enough to make people feel like we're securing this for our heroes? >> we're looking at this right now. we can always strife to do better. at the same time. these are communities. we have to balance out all the interests. we should, can do better. we're looking at that i work closely with the service secretaries, the service chiefs to get that right. ed: more of joey jones interview with defense secretary mark es per. he will be here 7:30 a.m. eastern time. you won't want to miss that. pete: there were chants of usa. chants of trump. chants of commander-in-chief. even chants of four more years. you wonder whether the military supports this president?
3:10 am
look at that game young people and their families decided to put their lives on hold to serve their country, get a top education, go put on the uniform. they love this guy. rachel: rather get booed in d.c. and loved outside like this. pete: i think he has formula down. rachel: we'll turn to headlines a set back in the murder probe of a 14-year-old boy being questioned by police has been released. he was not charged. he is now believed to be the person who stabbed tessa majors. she was attacked walking through a park. a 13-year-old boy is still in custody after police say he admitted to being involved, claimed his two friends and attacked and killed her. divers are combing a nearby pond hoping to find more evidence. extreme weather a pair of tornadoes tear through parts of florida. ef-1 twister ripping through coastal communities between jacksonville and orlando.

and everyone has dad's eyebrows! we chose eleanor. it was great-grandma's name. so apparently, we come from a long line of haberdashers, which is a fancy word for... they left everyone, and everything so they could get here. and start this family. every family has a unique story. this holiday season, help your family discover theirs.

3:17 am
barbs to the private sector back in the day. bernie sanders who poses a threat to both of them mostly unchallenged. democratic candidates think attacking sanders is not quote, a smart strategy. here to react former social justice director for the 2016 bernie sanders campaign, tesla figueroa. >> good morning. ed: what is the strategy? are they tiptoeing around the idea they don't want to offend sanders supporters in case he dropping out and wind supporters over? >> number one, sanders will not drop out, for sure we know like 2016. to me not smart but scary. certainly scary business. if they have an issue going after bernie sanders that tells me how will they go after president trump. his supporters are just as loyal as bernie sanders supporters, it also shows they have a problem attacking his 30 year consistent record.
3:18 am
whether people like bernie sanders or not he has been extremely consistent that should be a problem with warren, buttigieg or anyone else becomes the nominee, they will have challenge going against trump. ed: trump supporters believe if social i is on the ballot they believe they will win that in the general election. do you think bernie sanders is better for the democratic party because he would take the fight directly to the president unlike say a buttigieg? >> even though i worked for senator sanders i lien moderate. and most of america does, i can't say ben bernanke is best person to go against president trump or not. if democrats don't have courage to go after bernie sanders how can they possibly go after president trump. trump would like to go after socialist bernie sanders it. >> works in his favor. at the same time it says a lot about the strength of bernie sanders campaign of the his supporters are loyal for him. they will not switch to go to another candidate that something democrats have to look at, how
3:19 am
they can get not just the nomination but with a win. ed: break that down. democratic primary for president held, "qunnipiac poll" found, 29% for joe biden nationally. sanders 17%. buttigieg 9%. those who chose sanders, their second choices are warren, 31%, biden 11%, buttigieg 4%. we've known this all along, sanders and warren are coastest perhaps in terms of actual policy like "medicare for all." so i fest my question would be, does warren need, since, the second choice of sanders voters is her basically, does she need to go more directly after sanders supporters to try to get this nomination? >> yeah. i don't think that will do her any justice because again those supporters kind of overray. if they don't support warren they support bernie, vice versa. you see what warren and bernie did last time, go after
3:20 am
joe biden. couple debates back both piled on joe biden. later on when senator warren took the lead, they focused on her. you will probably see more attacks on joe biden to break down his campaign. obviously his campaign has not went down according to the polls. polls don't know what they're talking about clearly since 2016. if we go with the polls i think they would do better trying to defeat joe biden but joe biden will have to step up to go after bernie sanders as well. he has to show he has the guts to do it. ed: to your point, president trump has not believed the polls since 2015, 2016. why he might be president. thank you for coming in. >> thank you. ed: joel osteen, kanye west, may take the special sunday service out on the road. jonathan morris was at one of the services with kanye. we'll ask him what he thinks about the two joining forces. that is next. >> the opportunity to show companionship in the christian

3:26 am
pete: dropped the black. go snazzy. looking good. talk about millenials, do these study worry you. >> millenials are unaffiliated with almost anything in the sense they are not joiners. so i get it. in the pew polls they say, which one do you feel most attached to? they give a list. they basically say, none of the above. that doesn't mean they have lost a thirst or interest in god or spirituality. i worked both in universities as a chaplain as well down in lower manhattan, which is very young, hip area. without exception young people say tell me why i should believe. they were interested. but why? it wasn't a i'm religious because my parents are catholic or my parent are evangelicals. i think it is a kind of nice
3:27 am
they're not joining just because it is tradition. they want reasons for believing. i think it's a very positive sign. rachel: but i also think they're not being told by their parents or by culture about the benefits of religion. we see that young people who have weekly, go to weekly services have a prayer life, end up being more mentally well-adjusted adults. there are a lot of mental benefits, psychological benefits to spirituality. how much is parenting? maybe they weren't introduced to it. therefore they're saying -- >> rachel you would know. you have a -- rachel: nine. >> that is obviously -- rachel: 10 next week. >> which would be amazing. obviously young people are not moved that you have to go to church because you have to argument by their parents. i see what it is done in your

life. i see how it is motivating you to be nicer to mom or nicer to dad and that is the great motivation. ed: interesting one thing might motivate young people, kanye west, what he is doing in music, traveling around the country. you were in california and houston at the mega church with joel osteen. they might do the show on a national tour. what impact. >> that is interviewing kanye and joel. i believe kanye west's faith is legitimate and sincere. people criticized him. maybe this is commercial thing. he has clothing line he is wearing. kim kardashian is there as well. i believe it is very sincere. i give him kudos, respect for trying to connect with somebody who actually is a pastor. who has some theological background. now you might -- rachel: you think this is the next american spiritual revival al? >> i wouldn't go that far. it is like appetizer.

3:36 am
were born earlier in the century, started off with higher levels of hype every sensitivity or the type of narcissism where people are full of themselves as well as willfulness which is the tendency to impose opinions on others. so the question is, whether or not boomers are more sensitive than millenials. we're always picking on millenials. rachel: wanting to impose their opinion on others. i think this is all matches. i think boom every generation, who are other boomers besides john interest -- john travolta and olivia newton-john. hillary clinton. pete: they have an opinion. schools when they taught people things. listen a generation of kids who didn't, they got participation ribbons and trophies for everything. kids, i'm told, from a well-placed source in my ear that kids these days, they're not getting their driver's license. they get uber or lyft. independence doesn't matter. that is generation z not

3:46 am
watch. >> the public clearly wanted a change in the uk. the change was much more rapid and greater magnitude than anyone had predicted. and i think it is sort of a catastrophic warning to the democratic party that you're just going to have to have somebody that can beat donald trump. pete: joe biden telling california supporters look what happens when the labour party moves so far to the left? former uk independence party leader nigel farage launched the brexit campaign in the uk. he joins us to weigh in. thanks so much for being here. nobody better to comment on this before we get into the merits of brexit what is happening there, what do you say to democrats in the states, whoa, whoa, jeremy corbin and labour went too far left too fast and they're paying the consequences? >> they're right. i never thought i would say this i agree with joe biden. he is right. jeremy corbyn represent ad very hard left-wing form of
3:47 am
socialism. that may be popular in university campuses or one or two big cities, but out in middle england it was not popular, they said what will happen to my taxes? who will pay for all these crazy ideas? i think the parallel is absolutely the same. you can get a left-wing democrat candidate who may be very popular in los angeles but go to the fly-over states, people will feel the same way. so there is a big potential take-out here for the democrats in their selection process. pete: nigel you see this like brexit was in 16 to president trump's election. is this harbinger of things to come? >> i think, there are two factors here. the first, corbyn went way to the left and people feared, what would happen to their income, what would happen to taxes all of those things. but the other thing of course, are unique situation is that 3 1/2 years ago we voted to leave the european union yet, parliament has defied the will

3:55 am
repellant. why do they think this is the kind of thing that would actually work? >> people realize, according to polling, most people are uncomfortable with abortion in this country. they want laws ban it at least in the first trimester or second or third trimester. they want significant restrictions on abortion. that is the vast majority of people both democrats and republicans. so the abortion advocacy movement in our country is very nervous about this. they don't like the fact that abortion is losing popularity, losing favor. rachel: right. >> they resort to these outlandish tactics. magical abortion candles. campaign to shout your abortion. this was something that was pop aized a year or two ago. lighting up empire state building pink in new york when they celebrated abortion through all nine months practically, which is infanticide. when you see this extremism coming from abortion advocates, because they realize they're losing. so they're doing anything possible in order to normalize

relationship, and china is finally taking notice. we didn't even mention nato which is now spending $500 billion more on their own collective defense -- ed: because of the president. rachel: and doing all of this while under attack, while being undermined by the democrats. here's a morning tweet from president trump saying he feels a little bit like brett kavanaugh. he says after watching the disgraceful of way that a wonderful man was treated by the democrats and now seeing firsthand how these radical left, do-nothing dems are treating the impeachment hopes, i understand why so many dems are voting republicans. referencing, of course, representative van drew who's now -- ed: hooking like he's going to switch parties. pete: yeah, there's a democrat in a pro-trump district who said enough of this impeachment nonsense, i'm just going to become a republican and join the president in addition to a congressman in minnesota who has now announced he's going to vote against impeachment.
4:04 am
hook at democrats fleeing their own party, and you might have a hint. rachel: and the republicans on this -- ed: as house democrats move forward later this week and actually approve one or two of the articles of impeachment through the full house, they should have the votes to do that if they want, there will be a trial in the senate. we hear the president is saying, look, if you want a long trial, great. we'll call in hunter biden, joe biden, the whistleblower, adam schiff, a whole bunch of witnesses. and a key player, of course, will be the senate judiciary chair republican lindsey graham who says this whole thing is a crock. watch. >> what you're doing in the house is bad for the presidency. you're impeaching the president of the united states in a matter of weeks, not months. you had a two-year investigation, that wasn't enough. i think this whole thing is a crock. you're shutting the president out. the process in the house, any partisan group could do this in the future. you're weapon nicing impeachment, and i want to end
4:05 am
it. i don't want to legitimize it. i hate what they're doing. pete: the other thing that happened right in the middle of this week is horowitz going before the senate detailing how the fbi in 17 different ways were slanted against the president. he couldn't admit bias because he's the inspector general -- ed: that was lindsey graham's committee. pete: exactly. everyone looking at it said of course the system was rigged to spy on the trump campaign, and we're going to learn even more when durham comes out with his report later on this year. it got almost completely overshadowed. it's amazing to see how the tide has under the. rachel: when does durham's report come out? ed: well, he may have sort of a rolling situation where it's not specific report. i've talked to people in the government who basically say that durham may just start with indictments that roll out over the next few weeks and months into 2020. the justice department expects that he would be finished largely with his work by, say, the spring because you don't
4:06 am
want it to happen too close to the election, those kinds of indictments. but there are a lot of people inside the fbi, inside the justice department who are involved in that surveillance who are concerned about what durham -- pete: oh, you wouldn't want to mess with an election, and you might want to notify a campaigning if you're spying on them? rachel: so here's jill biden who says that trump's call with ukraine proves that he's actually afraid. take a look. >> when joe and i decided to run for president, when we made that decision, you know, we knew it was going to be tough. our family knew it was going to be tough. but we could never have imagined that it would turn into that donald trump would be asking a foreign government to get involved in our elections. and i think, you know, donald trump has shown us who he is, and this has been a real distraction. i think it just proves that he's afraid to run against my husband, joe biden. >> when hunter's name was first
4:07 am
mentioned, how to you deal with the fact that it seems so unrelenting? >> well, you know, i know my son. i know my son's character. hunter did nothing wrong, and that's the bottom line. pete: where's the follow-up? ed: he did nothing wrong, we don't really know what he did. how did he make the money? getting over $80,000 a month from burr -- burisma without any energy background? how did that happen? rachel: it's really perplexing. i mean, nobody would put that kind of trust and money into somebody like him. pete: and the president says, where's hunter? where is hunter? what explaining can he do for this particular situation? if he had anything useful to say, you know with his father running for president he would run to a camera to do -- he did one interview which was considered a disaster, so he hasn't been in the public view ever since. you can't just say i know my son, he did nothing wrong and that's the bottom line? rachel: they absolutely never
4:08 am
anticipated that this would come up. ed: yeah, no doubt about it. we mentioned a moment ago all of the things the president got done just in the last week alone? well, his counselor, kellyanne conway, says it's not the president being afraid of joe biden, it's actually the democratic field being afraid the president is going to beat any one of them. >> if i were a 2020 democrat running for president, i'd be hopping mad. nobody pays attention to them because if they thought any of them could really beat the president, they would put all their energy, issues and manpower behind that person. because the modern democratic party is so hell bent on getting the president rather than getting you a job or military funding, this is one of the most successful weeks of the trump presidency. usmca, china, the third consecutive military pay raise, investment in our military, over $700 billion, they have more resources, more respect, ndaa, paid family leave, and it's only friday. who knows what he'll do

6:02 am
is now at 4% so basically, the house can impeach him this week, with their vote, and it's going to go to a senate trial that everyone kind of gets the idea that he's not going to be removed from office, but the key is that it is unmoved in terms of the public wanting him removed from office, but his approval rating his job approval is going up as nancy pelosi turns the heat on him. rachel: of course this has been an incredible week it's ironic. he's impeached in this week at the same time win after win after win and even though right after the vote to move the impeachment forward by nancy pelosi, she tried to take credit for the usmca, now you have chuck schumer, you know, kind of monday night quarterbacking the china deal, and trying to act like oh, we could do it better but they never did it and i think the american people get that democrats are working on impeachment, while donald trump and the republicans in congress were working on things that actually matter in their lives. pete: if you'd shown numbers

6:05 am
new jersey governor democrat phil murphy immediately on the attack, and this party switch is cynical and desperate and i'm confident that a democrat who shares the values and priorities of our democratic party will hold this seat, in fact the democratic message today, is that jeff van drew had polling done recently that showed being in favor of the president and being against impeachment was going to bring him a big primary challenge he would likely lose from the left and so they say the democratic line is that he's saving his political hide, not trying to do the right thing. rachel: that's the cynical way of looking at this. maybe he's just doing this because he's actually representing his district and his district is very happy with the results. pete: wait so they are doing the group think impeachment yet we're supposed to listen to them and believe they are being prayer full, and patriotic? ed: after they poll tested quid pro quo or bribery would be better. pete: they are prayer full and patriotic and now accusing him of being the cynical political
6:06 am
one. rachel: that's correct. pete: oh, man. ed: we had representative lee z eldman on earlier and he said van drew is actually an indication of what's happening across the country. >> you have 31 house democrats who are in districts won by donald trump in 2016. those trump voters in those districts when they were sending these house democrats to washington when they were voting for them in 2018 they were voting for these house democrats to go to washington and work with the president, not to go to washington and to impeach the president. so jeff van drew is someone who wants to be working with his republican colleagues across the aisle. now i think that this is up to where a lot of voters are across this entire country saying hey this isn't what we want. we want you to be focusing on substantive wins working with each other to move our country forward. ed: you see republicans are pretty excited about this. there may be a rose garden ceremony the next couple days where jeff van drew will seal it pete: you talked to a

presidential historian too who pointed out this is not something that happens often. rachel: no. ed: especially this is not the message nancy pelosi wanted that somebody is running away from the party. pete: yeah. ed: that's why the president jumped on that with a tweet last night and in the meantime another part of this exclusive fox poll breaking this very hour that the president is going to be watching closely. it says among democratic primary voters, who do democrats think can best beat the president 77% say joe biden. 60% bernie sanders, 59% elizabeth warren, bloomberg 55, pete buttigieg 48, and back in october it was biden at 68%, sanders 54, warren 57, you get the idea i think the point is that joe biden despite all the stumbles, the struggles, the hunter biden story has actually moved up among democratic primary voters as the more likely person to beat the president. my point is that may not be true that's just the sentiment among democrats. the president might like that because they are saying look joe biden is pretty wounded.
6:08 am
if the democrats think that's their best shot, their best hope , the president maybe just fine with that. rachel: and it may actually solidify his support because i think the information that we're getting from these polls, how impeachment is being received by the country, the wins that the president is having policy wise, i mean, i don't know. maybe they just say do you know what? biden is our best choice even though he's the weakest candidate. pete: the only takeaway is that 77 number for joe biden and you alluded to it is how weak the rest of the field is. this guy can't string a sentence together. he doesn't know what state he's in or whether he supports obama or whether he will endorse him or not where is hunter biden no one knows he won't answer those questions. he is a wounded frontrunner at best. ed: right. pete: low energy, weak they've taken him off the trail, he can't get crowds like the president is even close. ed: look at pete buttigieg now at 48%. rachel: yeah. ed: he's leading in iowa and one poll has him leading in new hampshire even though biden is
6:09 am
leading nationally. rachel: if you're hillary you see an opening perhaps if you're hillary. pete: oh, boy are you going to throw that balloon into the show right now. rachel: [laughter] pete: well the problem doesn't it become logistical though? you've got to be able to file in early states and delegates so there is a time constraint but bloomberg wouldn't be getting in either if he didn't think his billions could buy him an opportunity. i think, let me say this, we're headed for a brokered convention just a guess, one man's proking nasty indication but if you're splitting it up in an early state and there's a lot of energy but biden is the one that can go with trump i don't know where they land. e-mail us what does the poll say to you, what do you make of the state of the democrat presidential primary. all right we've got a few more headlines for you this morning, a fox news alert, dozens of navy pilots pleading with lawmakers and top military brass to allow them to carry firearms on bases. the pilots calling it

week, and on thursday, the next democratic debate is scheduled to take place in california at loyola university. but all participants are threatening to boycott the event the candidates say they are standing in solidarity from the schools food workers currently on strike. pete? pete: so in bed with the unions that can't even figure out if they will debate. it's unbelievable. so we told you about a starbucks employee last month, giving an oklahoma cop his cup of coffee with the word "pig" typed out on the label but the outrage doesn't end there. in a tweet a california sheriff revealing two of our deputies were refused service at starbucks and the anti-police culture displayed by starbucks employees must end. that sheriff, chad bianco of riverside county, california joins us now. sir, thank you so much for being here this morning we really appreciate it. if you would, now some people may look at this and say well maybe starbucks was just a little slow and they didn't mean to snub these officers.
6:25 am
share the story with our audience if you would. >> that's the unfortunate part about this is it has nothing to do with the wait and that was part of my frustration with the response from starbucks although they've been very apologetic and wanting to apologize to the deputies and the response they gave to the public made it out like it was just a way that the deputies were frustrated with the wait that they had to, you know, before they ordered or got their coffee and it had nothing to do with that. there should not have been a wait. there was no one in line. they stood there for quite some time. they repeatedly asked if anyone was going to help them. one of the baristas kind of chuckled and said "maybe." the rest of the employees laughed and giggled. it was uncomfortable for the deputies. it was uncomfortable for the other patrons in the store at the time. they all realized what was happening, and so eventually, i mean, one of our officers, one of our deputies said that okay i see what's going on here and
6:26 am
then she grabbed her partner and they left. pete: sheriff good on you for sticking up for your guys and you and your tweet describe it as an anti-police culture repeatedly displayed by starbucks and you talked about the other stories and there have been others. what is it that starbucks is getting so wrong in their culture here? >> i really don't know. it's something that has to be addressed and there is a little bit of it that is, you know, in our culture, that it's turning anti-police and whether it's media and whether it's things like this that get broadcast across the country, and social media, i really don't know what the answer is, but there certainly is something that is causing this. and i mean, i don't want to pick on starbucks. this is not sheriff bianco or riverside county sheriff's department against starbucks but something is happening with starbucks. it's not other outlets that are repeatedly in the news like this so i don't know if it's a younger culture. i don't know what it is.
6:27 am
pete: it's a great point there's plenty of places you can get coffee in america it just happens to be one of them continues to have this problem. now here is what starbucks said in a statement to abc. they said there is simply no excuse for how the two deputies were ignored, we're deeply sorry for that and you'll remember there was a perceived racial incident at starbucks a number of months ago and they did an entire day of retraining of all of their employees. don't you think we're at a point where maybe they need to do more than just a quick apology to a local affiliate? >> i do believe there should be something more and that has to come within starbucks and the oops seem to be, they are very good at apologizing. i really do believe that corporate starbucks is very sorry that this happened. of course they are sorry, you know, they are in the news about it again, but i don't know what it is internally that they're doing to try and prevent this. it certainly isn't happening with anyone else. it's not like there's a racial, you know, two hispanics or two blacks were not refused service
6:28 am
and it wasn't any other, it was two uniformed deputies. pete: it was the blue. >> that just could not get coffee. pete: it was the color of the blue. you're right if you've got a culture problem you know it, i know it, leadership on the top has to take it back. starbucks it's about time they do something about it sheriff thank you for your service and for all your law enforcement officers and what you do we appreciate it. >> thank you very much i appreciate it. pete: well a quarterback, he had a great night last night captured lsu's first heisman trophy since 1959 wasn't even close. our next guest won the heisman and plays for six nfl times, ty detmer talks about this year 's record breaking vote. >> ♪ ♪ i wish i had gone into aspen dental much sooner. when you're not able to smile, you become closed off. having to live with bad teeth for so long was extremely depressing. now, i know how happy i am.

[laughter] yeah, i've coached high school, college, you know, high school level is a lot of fun because the kids are multiple still a little bit. ed: the journey, he had transferred from ohio state, you were not there when you got the award because you were playing a game far far from new york where they gave out the award. talk about that. >> i was. we had to play hawaii that night so the announcement came about 2:00 or 3:00 in the afternoon and then we had to go play a game unfortunately. didn't go so well, but it was really special because i was

far as the guys. pete: that might have been part of a reason why they took a risk on antonio brown bringing the talent around this guy. >> he's got edelman, but that's the piece he's always had so i know, you know as a quarterback you like to have some experience around you, and so as these young guys progress, you know, throughout the end of the season here, maybe that'll change his mind a little bit, but you know, i think he's still got time and he doesn't really have any limits as far as physical limits that are preventing him. ed: any big predictions on where we might be headed? lamar jackson is giving new england a run for their money. >> lamar is making it tough on defense so they've got a great shot running the football late in the season when the weather gets bad you got to be able to do that so they are as hot as anybody right now. pete: your nfc pick who is it? >> i like new orleans, drew brees and shawn peyton doing
