3:00 am
worldwide. that's a cool challenge. that's a cool name. how about that? rob: handle bar mustache, got bring it back. i think it's about time. carley: "fox & friends" starts right now. ♪ ♪ lovely day ♪ lovely day ♪ lovely day ♪ lovely day brian bine we hope so. we don't know if it's a lovely day. still kind of dark in manhattan. welcome to the latest edition, unless you know something i don't, of "fox & friends" for the next three hours. we will bring you the latest news. i don't know if you heard but we have a lot of news. steve: we have a really big room. great we are all together after months apart. ainsley: socially distancing still. brian: i have a bull horn. >> we have a lot it talk about so the big topic yesterday i guess in washington is schools. should our schools reopen?
3:01 am
brian: yes. ainsley: brian, you say yes. i would love it as long as we do it safely. we are seeing increased numbers of coronavirus in certain areas of our country we need to do it safely. brian: we don't have a choice. psychologically kids are regressing. you can't give a kindergartner or 3rd grader a laptop and learn something they are not learning anything. open up schools. might be ice cold by the fall. you have got to have the plan. steve: brian, the president of the national education association, the teacher's union says we want to open but it's got to be safe. it's all about safety. the president said look, in some cases, it is political, some people are not opening, he is suggesting governors and other people various localities to make -- he says it's political doesn't go into why but obviously he thinks it's to hurt him politically in november. here is the president yesterday at the white house at this round table with educators and all
3:02 am
sorts of health professionals talking about why the schools need to open the doors. >> we hope that most schools are going to be open. we don't want people to make political statements or do it for political reasons. they thinkgoing to be good for them politically so they keep the schools closed no. way. we are very much going to put pressure on governors and everybody else to open the schools to get them open it's very important. it's very important for the country and the well being of the students and the parents. we are going to be putting pressure on open your schools in the fall. steve: so he is going to be putting pressure on obviously he is talking about governors to reopen the schools. at the same time, critics say hey, mr. president, you put the reopening in the per view of the governors and now you are saying okay if the governor says i'm not going to open but you are saying you better open, what's going on with that?
3:03 am
he did have at his side a couple of professionals including the guy who runs the cdc dr. redfield. he says the centers for disease control for reopening the schools safely would be for everybody to wear masks, spread out the desks, stagger the schedules, eat meals in the classroom and then add physical barriers, plexiglass, ainsley, between the sinks in the bathroom. ainsley: those are some of the ideas. dropped kids outside of schools so the parents aren't going into the classrooms. the older adults as we know are more at risk. the children not so much. they are saying that the rewards of going to school far outweigh the risk of our children bringing something home. and it's up to the parents not to let the kids see the grandparents if you are worried about the older generation or wear the mask or social distancing. we all have to play our part in all of this if we are going to reopen. so, you know, we are worried about parents going back to work. what if they have to go back to work and the kids don't go to school. not making any money.
3:04 am
exactly. dr. sally, the president of the american academy of pediatrics talks about not only the consequences of the parents but the consequences of our kids missing school. listen to this. >> although this will not be easy pediatricians strongly advocate that we start with the goal with having students physically present in school this fall. the evidence we have thus far children are less likely to have symptoms of severe disease resulting from coronavirus. children are less likely to become infected and they're less likely to spread infection. we know, however, that missing school can have serious consequences for child health and well-being. particularly for students with disabilities or special healthcare needs. students in school learn more than reading, writing and arithmetic. they learn social and emotional skills. get healthy meals and exercise and mental health support. brian: there is just no question. the kids benefit in school, life is full of risk. children should learn that early.
3:05 am
life is if you feel hurdles, find a way to overcome. five or six months. hearing about this since february. institute a lock down since march. it's not ebola, it's the coronavirus. mostly kids, 99.9% of kids won't be affected by it at all. >> we know about the transference and rarity, this is a risk that has to be taken. not taking things for granted. they're getting the message. starting to play sports now in my town. kids with special needs beginning summer school and understanding how to do it. teachers used to challenges. they don't do it for the money. usually extraordinarily dedicated people used to finding a way to get that done. got to adapt military attitude. they don't complain. they have to find a way to do it. joe biden's campaign says we need to ensure we can do it safely and in line with the recommendations of public health officials and trump keeps failing us on that score. i don't know what he is talking about but i'm sure he has to say something negative on a daily
3:06 am
basis. you can check that box. you have to understand, too. if you have a high school, there are depend on high schoolers or junior high schoolers to go get lunch. farmers who have to deliver the food for kids who have to eat in school. they have to find a way to make their sale, we pay our tax dollars. let's start the cycle again. there is a risk. but the upside is greater than the downside. have you got to do it. steve: it all comes down to ainsley's earlier point, if the kids don't go to school, then the parents have got to stay at home. and the economy does not budge. and, obviously, it is a political calculation as well. brian: one of the elements but kids got to learn it's a major element. steve: safety and the economy. we have learned over the last four months exactly how devastating this is we have got to open up the economy and that means you have got to have the kids do something during the day and school is what most kids do
3:07 am
on a regular basis. let's get back to regular. brian: whatever regular is. ainsley: critics are saying the cases are higher now whenever the kids went home a few months ago so we have to do this safely. all the factors point to opening the schools if you flare democrats and republicans. also, technology, what about the poor communities and people who can't afford the technology so they can zoom. another colonel for parents, we are not teachers, we are not trained. our children are at developmental levels where they are absorbing everything right now that will set them for the rest of their lives. if we're not trained to teach, how much longer can we do this? we already did this for basic lay semester. do we want to continue to do this. brian: teachers are to learn. kids are not opening up their laptops and doing their work. ainsley: that's true. some are doing the bear minimum. brian: parents are doing 25 things. is billy or sandy actually pay be attention the answer is
3:08 am
probably no. you can't do this eight months. that should be the attitude get it done. steve: don't forget while we are talking about the 15eu69 of the children there are a lot of teachers who have co-morbid conditions and are over 65 so they have got to worry about their exposure as well. so there is a lot to this. we'll be talking about it threat the morning. in the meanwhile 6:08 in new york city. ainsley: so much more to get, to too. a fox news alert. police and protesters clashing in our nation's capital overnight. >> hey, hey. hey. [shouting] go back. go back. >> protesters blocking roads and forcing drivers to turn around. 8 people were arrested there at least one person was charged with assault on an officer. and that is in the d.c. area, brian. brian: seven people now facing federal charges for riots in portland. that happened just last weekend. although it has been 40 plus days of unrest. damaging a courthouse done that repeatedly and assaulted cops. when the cops patted some people down they had machetes.
3:09 am
a madison avenue shop owner suing governor cuomo for $100 million in damages after looting in may. the owner's attorney telling the "new york post" page 6, cuomo should have worried about hospital reform instead of bail reform. getting a free pass. some criminals were not able to be detained pending trial. and now we have looters. who would have imagined we would have to board up our stores? we're not in afghanistan, places like sak's fifth, louie vitton, being bombed out. the attorney went on to say that the reason they made it a class action lawsuit against the governor is he knows that other people will sign on board because they are frustrated that on that night of looting on may 29th here in new york city, where were the cops? why didn't the mayor? why didn't the governor step in to stop all the damage? ainsley: all right. so we telling you about schools. now we told you about the
3:10 am
protest. now let's get you up to date on what's happening in washington and congress. the house squad members have up veiled this thing called the breathe act. this legislation to defund the police to establish reparations. it includes some crazy things. accomplishing ice and abolishing dea getting rid of the ankle monitors establishing gang databases. there is a list of some of the other things. and ice arrests they are saying no longer can an ice agent no longer act on a door and arrest someone who is a criminal. brian: let's see if nancy pelosi is going to weigh in on this because after all this is the next generation of democratic leaders. we love to hear their voice there should be a laugh track with some of this. you have to wonder if these people actually want to be in america or find a country that would actually emulate. this think how much better off we would be if we could abolish data gang. no idea why they are committing crimes. ainsley: what's their reasonable for that?
3:11 am
brian: it's anti-american and that's where they are most comfortable. i would like to see leadership on the democratic side i think their name is joe biden and nancy pelosi and sign on to this. i'm so proud of our next generation. ainsley: joe biden has said he doesn't want to defund. the critics of this saying no way there is not going to pass there are a lot of democrats not for defunding. steve: this is not going anywhere in the house. there are a lot of leaders, who remember, they just voted on a police reform bill a couple of weeks ago. it's going nowhere in the senate. there is one other component in addition to all that law enforcement stuff, and that is there are two reparation elements to establish commissions to pay reparations for people who are either black or harmed by law enforcement. and that includes the war on drugs. prostitution, police violence, border violence in violation of the u.s. government's treaty obligations to tribal nations. there are a bunch of commissions and a bunch of changes.
3:12 am
rashida tlaib one of the two people who announced this yesterday ayanna pressley of massachusetts tried to speak during the zoom rollout but was unable to. nonetheless, here is the congresswoman talking about how this is a new vision of public safety. >> the breathe act is bold. it's meaningful. it's transformative pushes to reimagine power structures and what community investment really looks like. if we listen to our community members and leaders in the street, we can start to envision through this bill a new version for public safety. a new vision for public safety. one that is -- that protects and affirms black lives. this is exactly what democracy looks like, a people-powered federal bill that responds to the work and mandates of local communities across the country. ainsley: well, of course, tom homan who was the retired acting ice director and now he is a fox news contributor disagrees with
3:13 am
this. listen to what he says. >> stop vilifies the men and women who took annual oath to enforce the law. last year before covid ice had 52,000 people in detention. now they want to give ice just 10,000 beds, which decreases detention by 80%. let's remember now. 89% of everybody ice arrests is a criminal. you either have a criminal conviction or pending criminal charges. that means criminals won't be detained they will be released back into the public. 95% of everybody ice removes they remove from a bed. if they don't have beds, people can't be detained. they won't be removed. and they will be in the wind in the public. and that is the worst thing we'll can do. brian: it's pretty amazing to see these squad members get so much publicity, get such high profile and see everybody else have crickets. can you imagine being in congress in the democrat and giving up your microphone to this extreme views. if you don't view them as extreme views tough speak up. when people say the president is
3:14 am
amplifying fringe elements of the party. no, the fringe elements of the party are speaking louder than the so-called leaders of the party. and where is senator chris coons to say man that is not direction i want our party going. and for ilhan omar in particular to come here and demand all these changes to personal society, she may have married her brother to get here, if we're such a terrible society that needs such revamping, why was it so important for you to be here? and now that she is a lawmaker she wants to change everything about being here. i'm befuddled by her continued outspokeness and such extreme measures of changing a society. she seems to despise so much. steve: well, you know, one thing about the breathe act, have you got to figure that the president's campaign sells, yes, this is great because while it certainly is not going anywhere in the u.s. congress, it gives the president something to talk about in the run-up to the third day of november. and that is okay, america, have you got a choice. do you like their ideas with the breathe act where they do this
3:15 am
that some democrats have suggested or due like my idea which is to support law enforcement? it does appear to be a binary choice, doesn't it? oh, man. a busy day. a busy wednesday. a lovely day though, nonetheless. as we started out this particular segment. all right. carley shimkus is one floor above us right nau with the headlines on the mezzanine level. hello, carley. carley: that's right. new overnight we have learned the supreme court chief justice john roberts was briefly hospitalized last month after hitting his head in a fall. roberts hitting his forehead while going for a walk near his home on june 21st. a spokeswoman says doctors believe the fall was due to lightheadedness caused by dehydration. he was released from the hospital the next day. the united states could pass 3 million total covid-19 cases today. the u.s. is just under 4,000 cases away from that grim
3:16 am
milestone. nearly 132,000 people have died so far. infections are rising in 40 states, texas, arizona, and california all reporting record hospitalizations. the lone star state hitting a new single day record with more than 10,000 cases just yesterday. mary kay letourneau woman behind one of the biggest scandal in the 1990s, former teacher admitted to having an affair with 12-year-old student near seattle. she went on to marry him and have two children. she was sentenced to seven and a half years in prison for the crime. the couple separated in 2017. letourneau's lawyer say she died from cancer. she was 58 years old. today a patriotic community service will be held to honor charlie daniels. the event in tennessee will feature performances by trace atkins and other country artists. a public memorial will be held tomorrow before daniels funeral
3:17 am
on friday. the 83 country legend died from a stroke on monday. president trump tweeted his condolences writing in part we will miss great country rocker charlie daniels. my condolences to his wife hazel and their family. charlie is in my thoughts and prayers. i love his music. so did countless others. ainsley: he is a legend. as violence grows in major cities like chicago, many are wondering why leaders like joe biden is staying silent. this is personal for chicago native gianno caldwell, his youngest brother witnessed getting shot and killed and he is going to join us next. you hope the more you give the less they'll miss. but even if your teen was vaccinated against meningitis in the past... they may be missing vaccination for meningitis b. let's help protect them together.

3:22 am
as violence escalates in some of america's largest cities former vice president joe biden' silence is more noticeable these days because thin crease in gun violence in chicago hits home for our next guest whose younger brother watched his best friend get shot. jing success fox news analyst and author of "taken for granted" gianno caldwell. thank you for joining us from chicago. real quickly, tell us about your brother's story. >> three memorial day weekends ago my younger brother was in a car with two of his friends when two men walked up and shot the car 25 times he lived -- thankfully, he lived but his best friend died in his arms. since then i have been talking about the chicago violence. i have a fox nation special called the "the new battle for chicago" i encourage everyone to look at. this is situation that's systemic, i think. this is the real pandemic in chicago and it's been going on for years if you look at what
3:23 am
happened this weekend 12 of the almost 80 people shot this weekend were under the age of 18. if you look at the week before, where you had a 1-year-old shot, a 10-year-old shot and 17-year-old shot. if you look at the weekend before that a 3-year-old and 14 shot. the governor of georgia had one child shot and they are talking about bringing in the national guard. meanwhile, the leadership in chicago in the state of illinois won't even mention the national guard. this is a real pandemic in the city of chicago and the state of illinois and in the united states of america and what are the leaders doing? they failed us. and now it's time for them to accept president trump's help and come in and allow the federal government to do what they can do to support the city of chicago as we saw the problems that are here in the city of chicago it's life or death. steve: you know, gianno, we have not heard much from joe biden regarding this. at the same time, he was vice president for 8 years and there was a terrible problem with the gun violence in chicago back then.
3:24 am
>> correct. and that was because rahm emanuel, their friend, was in charge of the city of chicago so, of course, they don't want to criticize their fellow democrat. this has become extraordinarily problematic. i have been talking about this all over social media, twitter and instagram at gianno caldwell. this is about solutions. we can't wait anymore. democrats have completely shown where they're coming from. the mayor of chicago says i don't want to accept trump's help. she is waiting for the next democrat to come in. the next democrat like joe biden to do nothing again. we can no longer wait. people are frustrated and they are pissed the hell off. they don't know if their next breath. they don't know if their grandchildren are coming home. they have no clue. leaders seemingly don't care. we don't want another press conference. we need solutions we want them now. we are not waiting any longer. steve: randomness of it not only in chicago but in new york city as well it's just terrifying and
3:25 am
so sad. by the way, we did reach out to the biden campaign for a statement. they have not responded. somebody who has responded a lot over the last couple of days though is kanye west. and he gave a four hour interview to forbes magazine and apparently, you know, he is going to run for president. he has announced on the off black voters from joe biden to help trump. is he not denying that and to say that the black vote is democratic is a form of racism and white supremacy, he says. what do you say about this run by kanye. >> he also talk talks about plad parenthood. he talks about planned parenthood and he says that was white supremacy as well being put in black communities and and he is absolutely right. it's kind of hard to disagree with. so things that kanye west says
3:26 am
special joe biden in the democratic party. i know i was siphon off votes from the democratic party and he absolutely. we what was the determinant factor of the 2016 election. michigan, pennsylvania and wisconsin. that was 80,000 votes was the difference maker for donald trump to win. did you go back to 2,000, ralph nader ran for president. in the state of florida he got 10,000 votes. the elections came down george w. bush and al gore to about 500 votes. of course, george w. bush he was the winner of that contest. in this election, every voted will count. if kanye west is truly serious about running for president even as a write-in candidate even though he doesn't qualify dozen states or so. he hurts joe biden. he doesn't hurt trump by no means or imagination. if you listen to the interview, i didn't hear not one negative thing he said about donald trump. so this will be a very
3:27 am
interesting election 2020 has been full of surprises so we will see what happens. steve: no kidding. he says he is no longer supporting donald trump. he said at the end of this interview i'm taking off my red hat. the exit question. >> that was the worst he said. steve: yeah, it was. is he a serious candidate? >> i mean, it's hard to call him a serious candidate this late in the game. certainly, but, at the end of the day, if he is going to hurt joe biden and telling the truth about the democratic party, i welcome his candidacy. steve: all right, gianno caldwell joining us. thank you. >> thank you. steve: now congresswoman ilhan omar wants to dismantle the american economy. >> we cannot stop at criminal justice system. we must begin the work of dismantling the whole system of oppression. steve: okay. well, our next guest fled socialism in venezuela and says this sounds a little familiar.

3:33 am
venezuela. here to react daniel d. martin know. your reaction to her statements? >> yeah, brian. thank you for having me. the big problem her statement shows she revealed her own intentions from the beginning were not about the criminal justice system. the democrats have not wanted to pass things like the justice act g.o.p. proposed in the senate by tim scott, the senator from south carolina. their goal from the beginning with the protest has always been to push socialist agenda. they think that profit is bad. profit is good. profit means that business its should produce more what they are doing no. profit we get to where what happened to venezuela businesses are shut down and everyone is jobless. brian: this must sound like deja vu for you. instead of saying that's outrageous you are saying if more people believe this, this country is in trouble. >> yeah. it's the same story every
3:34 am
country is implemented. in they tell you this is not venezuela. >> they tell you this is not cuba. >> this is not the soviet union. but, guess what? it's the same idea. it doesn't matter where those ideas are implemented, they lead to the same result sh doesn't believe in a system with profit. what system does she believe in? do we want to make away people's businesses. will. brian: she calls this country thrill and system a system of oppression. do you see it that way? >> the complete opposite. i think she is a living testament that oppression is not what is going on here. she has been afforded privileges that nobody else in the world would ever dream of for some monthlyian refugee. i commend her. i think it's great that the united states is taking refugees and immigration is a good thing but she cannot just turn back and saying she is being oppressed by capitalism that
3:35 am
doesn't work out. see what's what's happening somalia. it's not socialist policies because of lack of security which she obviously wants to destroy as well. brian: daniel, you probably can understand, this usually first generation americans are the most grateful americans and the next generation tends to take it for granted because they have only known one system. you think she would be the most grateful american but she is no. the fbi was investigating an allegation she calls it fake news that she married her brother to get here. she is getting investigate ford funnels 100,000 to do so her husband's consulting firm. she has hardly been true blue since she got here. i'm wondering wife she is getting so much oxygen in the democratic party. >> i think that she is getting oxygen in the democratic party simply because she is the most radical among everyone with her
3:36 am
ideas. she just proposed the whole system, they are trying to pass an act called the breathe act that they are suppose supposed goal is to reform the criminal justice system. however, when you read the details, they want to cut the military budget? what does that have to do with policing. this is military abroad. this is to defend the country. they want to end life sentences. i don't know but, i think that most americans would agree with me, but murderer he is, people who commit serial murders should go to prison for their life if not get the death penalty. she wants to end that what kind of criminal justice reform is that? and then end capitalism, take businesses away, raise taxes. this stopped being about criminal justice a long time ago. i want justice to be made in this country. i want criminals to go to jail but i don't want want to end capitalism. brian: what you said was basic logic. i don't think you would have to say it but it does. a push back on this breathe act

says not only are kids less likely to infect -- get infected which we all know she said less likely to also spread it. which i hadn't really thought about. do you agree with that? >> well, yes. that's true, ainsley. when we have looked at other places across the world, it does show that as long as local infection rates are low then reopening schools doesn't seem to cause spikes in local infections. but the caveat is, ainsley, we have to get local infection rates low. while we still have verizon running rampant in certain parts of the country, the key is for the adults we need to take responsibility to do what we can to get those infection rates lower. in the northeast our infection rates are lower. yes, we have to be moving forward to get our schools open because as you heard the first lady say yesterday the mental health and the development of our children need to be considered just as much as their physical health. and as all of the moms can attest, to the children being home that lack of social
3:44 am
interaction, that has not been good for them. and we have to do what we can to get them back to class and being in person. ainsley: kara, how do you feel about it i know you have a 6 and 7-year-old. you are in dallas. there is uptick in the houston area. go ahead. >> you know i love my daughters more than anything. but i have been asking where are your pants so many times since mid february. i am ready for people to be fully clothed and that's interacting and socializing. yes, sisters be best friend but not supposed to be your only friend. i'm really hoping as dr. nicole said, everybody, the adults become responsible. they take action to protect themselves so that our babies can get back to being kids again. ainsley: right. i have a 4-year-old. and i have been reading that their brains, the majority of their brain development happens before five years old. so i definitely want to be in
3:45 am
school because they are trained to teach and i am not. dr. saphier, what about your oldest son? i know he is in college. he is 20. i was talking to a friend and found out that college is not going to reopen her daughter's college she burst into tears. she so wants to go to college. what about your son? >> well, let me tell you, ainsley, i'm very concerned. is he actually considering transferring to a different school that maybe is smaller that can offer in person classes because a lot of children have a difficult time learning over zoom. so, you know, will they need to do smaller class sizes? absolutely. i do think a lot of them will go the way of online because how are you supposed to reduce class sizes when it comes to most universities and, unfortunately, the college age kids, those in their 20's, they are contributing to viral transmission right now. they, unlike the elementary students, they actually do participate in viral transmissibility. i still think that schools with the money that they take in need to be creative and find ways to get those kids back to school. and i say kids, even though he
3:46 am
is 20 years old. yes, they need to take that money and be crassic. because whether they are 20 or 2 they need that social interaction. steve: do all three of you agree you want schools to open. >> i do. i really do. ainsley: barbara, i was reading parents with children with learning disabilities are concerned about this because they need access to technology. they need to be in the classroom with teachers that are trained to help them and to help them learn. also, low income parents. i'm concerned with them. because they might not have the financial means to pay for technology, to pay for computers to zoom. what are your biggest concerns, barbara? >> yeah. i think we need to make it a very even playing field. when you talk about parents with special needs. i grew up with a sibling with special needs. the taxing -- what is so taxing on the parents, they really aren't equipped to handle it day in and day out. and we really do need to get back in and engage in society for the best interest of humanity at this point. but, you know, again, we have to
3:47 am
make sure the playing field is even. we have to make sure that we also have alternative options for families that cannot do remote learning and for families that really rely on the food. you know, that the schools give them. so we really have to take all these metrics into consideration. ainsley: there were some suggestions that hhs secretary alex azar says set up the desks for distancing. teachers can be rotated and meals brought into the classroom. i heard in new york the teachers are coming up to pick up the kids outside. karrith, what are your kids doing now? when zooming was over, were you just jumping for school? >> we were very fortunate in a montessori situation. much smaller classrooms, personal attention from the teachers, but, the zoom wasn't the same thing everybody feels that way. i speak on college campuses. diversity of thought messaging
3:48 am
to schools. it's not the same. you can still hear the words but you need the experience. and i think that's what this is really all about. everybody having the experience of living and learning together. ainsley: hats off to awful our schools to make sure our children still learning at home. and to our tea parties. they don't get paid enough and they are working with 20-some odd kid in each classroom and they are saints. we are all appreciating them even more now. moms are wonderful, too. we love you all. thank you for being here. >> thank you. >> you are welcome. ainsley: big name coming up. plus deplorables tour is coming to fox nation. we have a preview and the other new shows coming out this week as well. coming up next. ve switched to i.

3:55 am
over these topics. i wasn't alive in 1969 but so fun to go back. went to the moon. neil armstrong hearing about. funny but embracing for me even stephens on we went to the moon on 1969. i don't know if you watched that. that's always in my head when i think about it. there are other creepy crazy, really uncomfortable things as well. zodiac killer the man son family. woodstock. that's not creepy though that's good time. 1997 which is available. unfortunately princess diana died that year. we will go through that the perspective of different age groups and fun. the red sox breaks the curls of the ban beano and one of the big ones was the movie titanic which stole my heart i was 7 at the time and i remember pg-13 i wrote my parents a letter explaining why i should be able to see it because i had these coffee table books back then because pictures and i was 7. i knew every stat and every fact. really neat, 2004 comes out

4:01 am
should. cdc was weighing in on this. you had the american academy of pete at tricks weighing in on this and melania weighed. in here's what the president said. >> we hope that most schools are going to be open. we'll don't want people to make political statements or do it for political reasons. they think it's going to be good for them politically so they keep the schools closed no, way. so we're very much going to put pressure on governors and everybody else to open the schools. get them open. it's very important. it's very important for our country and very important for the well being the students and parents. we are going to put a lot of pressure on open the schools in the fall. ainsley: we this h. that mom's panel on earlier, guys. all three of them agreed we should be opening our schools there are so many concerns about the home schooling, about the people that maybe come from low income families that can't afford a computer so that they can zoom. also the development at that point issues, the social issues. kids need to laugh and play and be around their kids -- i mean
4:02 am
be around their friends. all right. here is. so mom's panel. >> development of our children need to be considered just as much as their physical health. and as all of the moms can attest to the children being home, that lack of social interaction, that's not been good for them and we have to do what we can to get them back to class and being in person. >> it's so taxing on the parents. and they really aren't equipped to handle it day in and day out. we really do need to get back in and engage in society for the best interest of humanity at this point. >> you need the experience i think that's what this is all about. everybody have the experience of living and learning together. steve: one of the other things in which you listed, ainsley about the benefits of kids going to school. for a lot of kids in america, the meal that they get at school or the meals they get at school sometimes the only solid meal they get during the course of the day plus there are health
4:03 am
services available as well. the president has made it very clear that he is trying to reopen the country. the faster the better it has seemed in some cases but, at the same time, unless the kids are out of the house, a lot of parents can't go to work. and without the parents working, the economy does not completely take off. and the president would like to see it thriving as he runs for re-election. he did yesterday applaud florida governor ron desantis who made it very clear the schools are going to open in the great state of florida in the fall. at the same time, he took a shot at harvard and said i cannot believe shameful what harvard is doing. charging people $50,000 a head, brian, and they're not even going to have in person college, which is crazy to the president. brian: of course, because things are going back to normal in massachusetts. back-to-normal for yale and connect cut for these ivy league schools you are lucky enough to get. in you don't want to risk taking
4:04 am
a semester off. other schools don't have that luxury so they don't have to hustle to do it. inexcusable they have to customize their school for a college like that to call it quits sends the wrong message. for those who say donald trump is being reckless and go what regulations and experts say, the cdc says it's clear, the greater risk to our society is to have these schools closed. quote, nothing would cause me greater sadness says commissionerfield, sadness than to see any district or school as guidelines as a reason to not reopen. what the president's point is about politics is if you want joe biden elected. if you want to maybe taking the senate what you have to do is country struggling and need a change. if things begin to revive that makes your fortunes suffer politically. that's what the president fears. and for governor cuomo in new york to say i am not sure about opening up schools, when you
4:05 am
have 59 hospitalizations on long island, when they have diminished the curve to almost invisible in new york and not to say as of now, we're, in barring something catastrophic, we are on target. instead, he leaves it out there. one, is he power hungry, number two, he wants to leave everybody in limbo. i think that's inexcusable, got letters to my school district offering suggestions asking for suggestions for how to open schools what what why be open to doing sending kids in with masks obviously is not a problem. my goodness if we are this can do country and you have five months to get your school ready and when students -- it's so hard for students to get this and harder for them to transfer it, this is a hurdle that's easy to clear for an industrialized country like ours. and that's what the president is saying. how could you throw in the towel in june? ainsley: there are a lot of moms and dads that are not political. this should not be about
4:06 am
politics. can we open our schools safely because our kids, our education for all americans is extremely important. and we don't want to see numbers fall. we don't want to see testing scores fall. as long as we can do it safely, why not open the schools because all the statistics point to the fact that it needs to happen. steve: i heard this morning on the radio, ainsley, they were talking about reopening the schools here. and, you know, mayor de blasio said the schools are going to be reopened but then the governor said hold on, it's my decision. they were saying that in new york city, they would have only 15 kids in a classroom, which makes you wonder for some of these big schools and school districts, where are they going to put all the kids? and so what they have suggested is they would have a staggered routine, for instance, down in fairfax county, in virginia, it sounds like parents are being offered the choice between do you want your kid to do online next year or do you want them to show up for two days a week? which i believe it was betsy
4:07 am
devos says that's no real choice. you have got to be all in on school for all day long. at the same time, it's all about safety. because the -- if you are are a teacher, and you have diabetes or you have one of the other co-morbid conditions, you have got to worry about your personal health, obviously or if they are in that age range. so there still is a lot of moving parts. brian: it's all about being a terrible governor who has done everything to hamstring his state from the day the pandemic hit in virginia. and very frustrated virginia constituents almost up and down the coast. meanwhile, let's talk about the presidential run, it looks like kanye west is in. not going to be able to clear a lot of the states signatures. here is what he said after written statement. he said this to forbes. this is a form of racism and white supremacy and white control to say that all black people need to be democratic and to assume that me running is me splitting the vote.
4:08 am
the reason why this is the first day i registered to vote is because i was scared. i was told if i voted on trump, my music career would be over. i was threatened to being in one party. i was threatened as a black man in the democratic party. and that's what the democrats are doing. threatening them to the point where this white man can tell a black man if you don't vote for me you are not black. of course referring to joe biden on morning show in new york city what he actually said he is not even paraphrasing. that's actually a statement. remember historically the democratic party, the party of the kkk. the republican party the party of frederick douglass and frederick douglass as well as abraham lincoln. somehow i guess in the 1960s things all reversed. ainsley: it's worth reading. it's in forbes. i have the article in front of me we all do. covers so many topics. talked for so many hours. he talks about how he has never voted. he talked about how he had covid in february. he calls the vaccine suspicious because he says it's the mark of the beast.
4:09 am
he talks about planned parenthood. he says they are placed in cities by white supremacists to do the devil's work. is he pro-life that's what the word, that's what scripture tells us to be. he says he is no longer a trump supporter. his advisors, his wife, and elon musk. he says running for president will be called the birthday party because when we win it will be irving's birthday. the president responded -- listen. this is a quote not a soundbite. he says he may, it's very interesting. it would have to be limited to certain states because in some states the deadline has been missed. if he did it, he would have to view this as a trial run for what's going to happen in four years. now, steve, he did say that he believes there could be an argument made to get him on the ballot in those states that he is not going to be on. steve: it would have to be a write-in vote for kanye. some are wondering whether or not he is really a serious candidate. in the quote that brian just read he essentially says he is okay helping siphon votes away
4:10 am
from joe biden. although it makes sound like is he no longer in the trump camp. after this interview. four hour long interview i'm taking off the red hat. we had gianno caldwell on just about an hour ago. he thinks if kanye is in it, regardless of whether or not he can make it the distance, result 3459ly, he helps the current person in the white house. watch this. here is gianno. it's kind of hard to disagree with some of the things that kanye west says especially about joe biden and the democratic party. he said hey, i know i would siphon off votes from joe biden and he absolutely. we if you look at what was the determinant fact were to of the 2016 election michigan, pennsylvania, and wisconsin, that was 80,000 votes was the difference maker for donald trump to win. and if you listen to the interview, i didn't hear not one negative thing he said about donald trump. so this will be a very
4:11 am
interesting election, 2020 has been full of surprises so we will see what happens. steve: completely full of surprises. and kanye has a lot of money to run. he has a lot of fans in the culture and ironically the name of his second album was late registration. what's that about? ainsley: i do like that he says it's racism if you just assume african-americans will vote for a democrat because, remember joe biden said that i thought that was a big highlight of the interview because, hopefully, out of everything that we have been through over the last few months we have learned that we are all americans. can you vote the way you feel best. the candidate can you relate to. brian: supposed to be private votes. behind the curtain and put that sheet in. not if you are mail in ballot. maybe there is all types of pressure in your family dynamic say who are you voting for again or let me have that ballot? i will vote for you. that's why mail-in balloting is so complex and convoluted and i think it should be only in case of emergency.
4:12 am
let's talk about something else we are dealing with that's the cancel culture. if you said anything in the past if you are jimmy fallon and were asked by "saturday night live" to do a skit in black face, you have a danger of being canceled. if you are jimmy kimmel and pretended to be karl malone black face you could be canceled. we know what happened with megyn kelly and al franken with the me too movement. now there is a push and led by j.k. rowlings to stop the cancel culture in its tracks. unless you are the barstool founder it has ended careers. steve: j.k. rowling famous for the harry potter books, of course, she and 150 other authors and other gary, simon rushdie. they wrote this open letter that appeared in harper's magazine yesterday defending the open debate and freedom of thought and speech. think about that. it's an open letter warning of an intolerant climate for free
4:13 am
speech. we all want free speech, don't we? part of what they wrote says this: the free exchange of information and ideas, the lifeblood of a liberal society, is daily becoming more constricted. the restriction of debate, whether by a repressive government or intolerant society invariably hurts those who lack power and makes everybody less capable of democratic participation. so they say this is a real threat to our society as we know it. ainsley: yeah. they make some good points. we have been talking about all these statues coming down and, brian, have you been very vocal about this because of the history of our past of so many leaders who did very good things but at the same time we don't agree with everything that they did. and do you erase complete history? do you take all the statues down? do you take all the confederate statues down? steve: dukan sell it. ainsley: let us know what you think about this
4:14 am brian: if you are free speech you should be anti-cancel culture. carley shimkus is on the docket to go next. hey, carley. carley: hey, guys. i want to show you powerful images a satisfactory blue in colorado, ohio as officers mourn one of their own. thousands of loved ones pack the arena for fallen officer anthony dia killed on the fourth of july welfare check a man drunk in a home depot parking lot. dia was only on the force for two years. he leaves behind a wife and two sons. police releasing this new video of a person of interest in the killing of an 8-year-old girl in atlanta. a surveillance camera capturing that man walking with an ar. 15 outside of a store. turner was shot and killed outside of that store fourth of july while sitting in her mother's car. the man is one of several people police want to question. atlanta crime stoppers is offering a $20,000 reward for

steve: new york state lawmaker introduced a bill require police officers to buy personal liability insurance cover any potential lawsuits that could be filed against them. and while local municipalities would cover the base rate, officers would be forced to pay up if their premiums increased due to any claims. here to react is the president of the new york state trooper's union thomas mongere. tom, good morning to you. >> good morning. thanks for having me on. steve: what do you think about this? this was the big bone of contention in washington, d.c. where democrats were saying we have got to get rid of that immunity for cops essentially
4:21 am
and the republicans are saying you got to be crazy. we have got to make on the national level as you just said the republicans have stopped it. but it's actually -- it's crazy what's going on right now with with this law in new york state the proposed law. liability insurance for police officers, it's similar to what doctors are required to get. i got an idea. hey, pay a sim us similar to what doctors are getting paid and maybe we can talk. it's the onslaught of the bills coming in right now. it's crazy. steve: tom, another bill proposed last week that would strip officers of their pensions if they are found guilty of
4:22 am
misconduct. >> yeah. there is a similar law passed a couple years ago with all the politicians in new york state that were running amiss of the law, they stripped their pensions or they can strip it. under that law they can actually, if a police officer is convicted of a felony while they are working they could be stripped of their pension. avalanche of crazy bills coming out. what what you are doing is handcuffing the police officers from doing their job. when you handcuff police officers and create that hesitation just look at what is going on in new york city. violence is spiking. down in atlanta violence is spiking. in minneapolis in the aftermath of that horror out there, violence is spiking because, you know, police officers are very hesitant to do their job. and what these laws do is create another layer of hesitation and, unfortunately, creates victims in society common every day citizens become victims.
4:23 am
steve as you talk about the violence that is spiking across the country in many locals, tom, at the same time, you say you know, the police officers are reluctant to get involved because they don't know if they are going to get sued and does the chief have their back because the chief works for the mayor. works -- it's complicated spiral we're in right now, isn't it? >> oh, it absolutely is listen, my people go to work every day. police officers, they put on their uniform. they do their job. they are out there. just having that hanging over their head, that hesitation. steve: yeah. >> that they don't know somebody has their back and they don't have that backup, it does create a lot of problems and, again, it creates victims out of the common every day citizens because they're the ones who suffer. steve: sure. what about retirements with the state troopers and other people who you know work at, for instance, here in new york city, where there are a lot of officers who feel like the mayor does not have their back? >> well, retirements are going up dramatically. i'm seeing it on my own job with the state troopers.
4:24 am
but new york city from the daughter that that i have seen, anybody who has 20 years and enough time to retire, i think they are seriously considering leaving because, again, are you going to -- what is around the next corner, you know, second guessing, you are not able to do your job and protect the citizens in new york state. steve: i know a lot of officers here in new york city who have retired after 20 years, and then what do they do? they move to florida, they find another law enforcement job and they live in a place is nice and warm all year around. let's see what happens as we talk about reforming policing in america. tom mungeer new york state police trooper union. thanks for joining us via skype. >> it is an honor, thank you. steve: it's an honor having you. thank you for your service. operation warp speed is kicking into high gear and one company just got more than a billion bucks could have a covid-19 vaccine by the end of the year. but is that realistic?

deliver 100 million doses as soon as late this year. here to discuss is medical news medical contributor dr. janette nesheiwat. good morning to you, dr. nesheiwat. >> hey. good morning, ainsley. ainsley: that is excellent news. we are hoping it comes before the end of the year. how do you feel about this? >> yes. i feel great. i'm so excited and i can't wait another day for this vaccine to be available. like you said, operation warp speed that basically cuts through the red tape and it allows for what we call parallel manufacturing which means as we are testing it, we are manufacturing it so we can save time. there is no shortcuts in safety. just a matter of saving time through the manufacturing. only risk and gamble here is potential loss of money. but, what this will do is hopefully this funding will allow nova vaccination to enter the final stages of human trials in the early fall and use about 30,000 patients to test does it work? is it safe? does it induce what we call immunogenicity will the body create a strong immune response
4:31 am
to fight against this virus? so far what they come up with this vaccine to prevent the spikes of the virus to from attaching to other cells so it doesn't infect us and make us sick. definitely like dr. fauci says i'm cautiously optimistic. if it's not available by the end of this year hopefully early next year. this is what we need to achieve what we call that herd immunity. you get that either from vaccination or naturally acquiring the virus. so, definitely a step in the right direction. i can't wait. but, it's not the only vaccine that's under development. we also have others, that concernna, astrazenecaca. we don't want to put all our eggs in one basket. this is great news to hear and something we certainly need. ainsley: yes, i know. i have a friend in the medical community she has a friend who is one of these scientists who is working around the clock to try to work on the vaccine getting paid extra to work continuous shifts. john hopkins center for health security. is he talking about security

about wearing the mask. he said i think that mask-wearing and some degree of social distancing we will be living with, hopefully living with happily for several years. it's actually pretty straightforward if we cover our faces and both you and anyone you are interacting with are wearing a mask, the risk of transmission goes way down. for years do you agree with that? even after the vaccine comes out? >> i'm thinking maybe at least a year, maybe two. but, you know, when you look at the spikes and surges in various parts of this country, these many epicenters we have the military being deployed in texas. we have scarce icu beds in florida. we have doctors and nurses being stretched thin. it's really a time to really understand and accept that part of our best defense and our strongest tools is covering your mouth. covering your face. this can really help to save lives. there is a study that just came out in the science academy journals which showed here in new york alone between april 6th and may 9th, 66,000 patients
4:33 am
were prevented from having the coronavirus. so it prevented 66,000 cases of corona simply by covering your face just a matter dedication and discipline and understanding how much it works. i don't know about years to come. i hope wrong. at least a year or two. is under development right now. even if we have that vaccine we then have to determine are you going to need two doses. ainsley: still have to live in a mask if you live in an area no high numbers nobody is going to the hospital do you still have to do it? >> depends on where you are and what your risk factors are. a lot of people can be asymptomatic carriers so you may have it and not realize have you it and pass it on to someone else. ainsley: that would be awful. >> weakened immune system. we want to protect ourselves and others. follow your local cdc guidelines until we get in vaccine ons manchester. ainsley: all right. good luck. you are one of those on the front lines.

4:39 am
brian: here to react national press secretary for the trump 2020 campaign would also say joe biden is not special i will jump ahead to the final answer there is hogan gidley. hogan has made the transition from the white house to the campaign. hogan, first off, mick mulvaney yesterday said if it's trump against biden trump will do well. if it's trump and a referendum on him he will struggle there. do you agree. >> trump is going to do well and win either way. kellyanne made a point from the north lawn that when you are debating with yourself, it's a little bit more difficult. trump is so unique, he is so powerful and so strong and he has been so well accomplished throughout his life that he has been so successful. his first run for politics he won the presidency of the united states. he dual it again regardless of what the media and the detractors try and take away from him. the american people cannot be denied all the success and the positive things that have occurred because of this president's policies.
4:40 am
ainsley: let's talk about the w.h.o. because the president has officially sent out a notice that the united states is going to withdraw from the w.h.o. effective 20201. joe biden heard this and said on day one i'm going to reverse this we need to restore our leadership on the world stage. this is what he tweeted america is safer when america is engaged in strengthening global health on first day as president i will rejoin the w.h.o. and restore our leadership on the world stage. why does the president want to specifically withdraw? what is your reaction to biden. >> we spent hundreds of billions on the w.h.o. the way you combat these types of massive global pandemics is with information. they have not been forth coming whatsoever. in fact, they have actually covered up for china's malfeasance. they're the bad actors here. this has created a developed came from china. everyone now knows that and joe biden continues to show his true colors here, he would rather protect china than america. you see it time and time again
4:41 am
and that tweet points that out beautifully. that's what the american people have to understand. there is a clear choice here. you don't have to guess what this country would look like under a president biden i hate to even say the words. you don't have to say the words. you have seen it. joe biden wants to defund the police. he will allow our cities to devolve into this hell escape people looting and rioting smashing into store fronts stealing merchandise. he hasn't called that out. he has been silent. only way he pipes up w.h.o. is doing a good job and i will put the money back in for them. they have been horrible on the global stage. we can't fight these pandemics. we can't stop what's going on around this country and in the world without information. the w.h.o. was part and parcel with china the problem with getting information out around the globe. and the world suffered because of it. and people like joe biden would
4:42 am
allow that to continue. steve: hogan, let me ask you, going back to kanye west for a second. you know, he says he is running for president. clearly, if he does run, it would help donald trump rather than joe biden and, in fact, according to the forbes item that he did, he said he is okay eye uponning off black votes from joe biden to help trump not denying that he does say he is going to take off the red cap though after that particular interview. i know yesterday the president told real clear politics that he thinks that kanye is too late because a bunch of deadlines have passed for getting on the ballot and stuff like that. does the president encourage kanye to run because it would help president trump in the conventional wisdom way. has anybody in kanye's group or the president himself spoken to anybody in the campaign? >> not to my knowledge. i haven't spoken directly with the president about kanye's
4:43 am
candidacy. let's be clear the president said it will be interesting. we will see what happens, of course as the president likes to say. i was actually at a lunch with the president of the united states, kanye west, jim brown and a couple of others. he has a lot of interesting ideas. we will be interested in finding out more about those ideas in the coming weeks and months as he continues his run for president. kanye was very clear in those comments you played earlier. and that is it was a scathing indictment of the democrat party not just their policy on abortion with planned parenthood, but also the policies that have disproportion nativitily affected african-americans in a negative way. this president came into office and did things that president barack obama and joe bidenner jr thought about doing. joe biden has been in politics for 40-plus years. he is still complaining about the same things today he was decades ago. we came in and immediately this president pushed and got done criminal justice reform. historic funding for hvcus codifying it into law so they
4:44 am
didn't have to come back and ask for it not to mention the opportunity zone in which the inner cities saw massive wage increases more so than the rest of the country that cause the influxion of infrastructure and capital into those communities. that's all done by donald trump. his record speaks for itself and we'll put it against anybody. >> vice president biden never said he would defund the police. that is something that many people on the democratic side have said. but, let's just move on. i know on saturday you guys are going to be in new hampshire, going to be at the portsmouth -- going to be at the portsmouth international airport is this going to be an open air rally? if so, what other precautions are you going to do to try to minimize the chance of the virus spreading and, number three, what kind of crowd do you expect? >> well, look, all of donald trump's rallies and all of his events are electric. there is no doubt about that. the enthusiasm for him is something like i have never seen before. we are providing masks for all
4:45 am
of the attendees, encouraging them to wear them as well. we are providing hand sanitizer for those. it is an open air hanger as you pointed out both indoor and outdoor. people on the tarmac as well. it should be incredible event. listen, the president wants to go in there and talk about all the accomplish. s he has done in his first term and how he has made people's lives better. answers the age old question are you better off than you were before? the answer undoubtedly is yes. brian: with the pandemic, you know the growth is not there you know the unemployment is still 11%. so you can't really say you are better off than you were three years ago. because at the very least, the pandemic. so you can't really say that right? >> no, absolutely. of course you can say that because, listen, this global pandemic hit all of us. not just here in this country but across the world. this president took the leadership role and was criticized for canceling flights, for example from china from, europe, by the likes of joe biden who said it was a bad
4:46 am
move, said it was racist and xenophobic and now had to come back yeah it was probably the right thing to do. 'this the saw the numbers, 2.2 million people projected dead in america. so, as of right now, this president's policies, this president's decisions, his leadership, has saved almost 2 million lives in this country, i put that up against anybody and as this economy begins to rebound, you saw last month, 10 times the growth ever in one month and then, of course, in june, 20 times the growth than ever before in one month. this economy is roaring back. listen, this president rebuilt this economy once. he will rebuild it again. joe biden's policies prevented people from having jobs in the past. he is hoping coronavirus does it for him in the future. this president wants to continue the growth forward so the american people can get back to work, ba to school and our country can get back to being great the way he made it the first time. ainsley: hogan, thanks for joining us. >> thanks so much.

5:01 am
now they are sticking with it and like everybody else they were supposed to be in the middle of a tour and everybody in show business, basically is taking their 2020 plans and making their 2021 pla. ainsley: yup, i had tickets to billy joel. steve: we were going to have our summer concert series. the whole world -- ainsley: you had a wedding planned, steve. we've all been through it. strategist i know it. we still have a wedding, august 1 but there are only going to be nine people instead of bunches. ainsley: all right, so let's talk about schools because we are all resuming for the last few months and a break right now but schools are supposed to start down south in august, start up here after labor day. question is will they reopen? the president yesterday had a big round table discussion with different schools and different experts to discuss this and he is saying he's going to put pressure on governors and local leaders to open up the schools in the fall. listen to this. >> we hope that most schools are going to be hope. we don't want people to make
5:02 am
political statements or do it for political reasons. i think it's going to be good for them politically so they keep the schools closed, no way. so we're very much going to put pressure on governors and everybody else to open the schools to get them open and it's very important. it's very important for our countries, for it's very important for the well being of the student and the parents, so we're going to be putting a lot of pressure on open your schools in the fall. ainsley: there's so many different factors here. kids that are on reduced lunch and they need that hot meal like you said earlier in the show, steve. if the kids can't go to school the parents can't go to work in many cases, so then there's no money to pay the bills. you have disabled children that need that extra help from those teachers specialized in this and then the poor communities that can't afford to buy a computer or some sort of a device, technology to help them zoom with the classroom. steve: sure there are all sorts of things to consider, but and yesterday the president applaud
5:03 am
ed the governor of florida, ron desantis, for making it very clear that florida schools will be open come fall. even though they have had a spike in the number of cases down in florida, he also yelled at harvard for just throwing in the towel and essentially saying nope, nobody will be in-person but at the same time, what confuses some of the president's critics is the fact that he said we're going to pressure people to open the schools. clearly he's talking at america 's governors who are not yet in open mode because remember, it was a couple of months ago the president said okay, i'm going to deputize all of the governors to make sure they are in charge of the reopening plans in the various states but now, he's saying do you know what? some are dragging their feet. we're going to pressure them. brian: by the way they say go with the scientists. well the cdc director robert red field encourages all schools to do what they need to reopen and have plans to anticipate covid-19 cases will in fact
5:04 am
occur. so when they, when you get a positive test don't panic or shut it down. have a quick action plan because i think it's important the guidance we've put out there does not give people an excuse not to open schools meanwhile our next guest attended the round table at the white house yesterday. high school principal patrick daily joins us now. patrick, what did you take away from that on camera think tank? >> well one of the things i thought was really beneficial of that day was the round table think tank that included the physicians. that included the director of the cdc, and his statement that they never ordered the schools closed. i think one of the most empowering speeches yesterday was from the second lady and that second lady was a teacher herself, really did a wonderful job talking about the concern she has for the mental health and the anxiety that students are experiencing throughout the nation and i think one of the most powerful voices
5:05 am
yesterday was our sophomore at st. vincent high school in petal uma. cameron spoke on behalf of students and i thought he gave a very empowering speech on why it's so important to return. ainsley: i know you're the only catholic school there represented on that panel and the only school from the west coast. you're the principal at this private school, 200 student private school and you took another student which is great. what did cameron say? is he on board with you, does he want the school to open up as well? >> we're opened up right now to be honest with you. ainsley: oh, you are? >> we have used the guidelines in the state of california, guidelines of local health officials. we have summer camps going on right now, summer practices, we run everything as based on the guidelines from hand washing to social distancing to one coach to 10 students in a pod to making sure all our equipment are sanitized. ainsley: so you figured it out. >> so we figured it out and we used the guidelines and what we
5:06 am
also did was when we were ordered to close the state of california in march of 17, as a principal our job was to prepare to return in april and that did not happen. then we were prepared to return in may and that did not happen. so we looked at schools throughout the rest of the world we looked at our sister school, and avenue on france, we looked over australia, we looked at schools in the netherlands. what were they doing in policies and procedures in place so instead of reinventing the wheel , i think they have some very good guidelines over there in europe that we can follow here in the united states as well. always focusing on the health and safety of our students. steve: absolutely and ultimately you'd like to open on august 10 and you've got i read three plans, two days on, one day off, two days on, you got a hybrid plan, all sorts of plans going forward. you were first up on the white house radar after you applied
5:07 am
for a paycheck protection loan a couple of months ago and thanks to that, you were able to continue to pay people, but ultimately the president made it clear yesterday, patrick, that some governors are not reopening right now, and he suggested it's almost political. they're trying to hurt him. as you look at and hear other stories from other principals in other location, is it political in some spots? >> well, you know, i assume and i focus only on st. vincent de paul high school and we're within the diocese of santa rosa and in the last three years we've dealt with fire, smoke and power outages and now a virus so really my focus is on our school but i assume it's probably very political in some areas but i know with us, our focus is on st. vincent depaul. brian: and the netherlands, australia and those countries
5:08 am
have opened, germany have opened so there's no reason for america not to be open and that's what i got from yesterday's conference and from you today. thanks so much. >> thank you very much for having me. steve: good luck. brian: let's talk about something that sadly is running in this country and around the world. the cancel culture, and not a lot of people want to sit on the sidelines and watch their livelihood and reputation go by the wayside, especially if you go back and ask people to look back at every tweet, every statement, every interview they gave, and justify it or if they're not politically correct today, have themselves ruined. so j. k. rohwling, famous from harry potter authored a letter signed on by very prestigious people to end the cancel culture in our society and start being a little bit more tolerant. i'm struck by how many liberals are on this list. ainsley: look at some of the other ones, gloria steinem,
5:09 am
bari weiss opini on editor, and then noam chomsky , a political activist as well so you hear this from conservatives and now liberals are jumping on board and they say if you stifle the atmosphere, restrict public debate it's going to hurt those without power and make everyone less capable of democratic participation. steve: when you think about it over the last number of months and years since this kind of phenomenon has taken off on social media, a lot of conservative voices say why is it they're only doing the cancel culture towards conservatives? but you look at over the last recent period of time over the last week or so, j. k. rowl ing, famous for the harry potter books, she became a target because of some of her comments regarding transgender people and then you've got over the last couple of days where they've suggested that now that it's on display plus, hamilton, the musical should be canceled as well so it's interesting now
5:10 am
the pendulum has swung the other way, so this letter with 150 voices, from predominantly the left, said this in harper's magazine. the free exchange of information and idea, the life blood of a liberal society's daily becoming more constricted. the restriction of debate whether by a repress ever government or an intolerant society hurts those who lack power and makes everyone less capable of democratic participation. so, in other words, it's all about freedom of speech and freedom of expression and not being shamed online. brian: when you're going after hamilton it's a problem. i remember they were talking about bringing back the office and they say no, because a lot of sufficient in the office which is a comedy they say would not fly in today's culture. the culture of five years ago so it's impossible to live up to a standard that's this mysterious body put into play. who are these people canceling people and it's going to take somebody with power like j. k. r
5:11 am
owling to stand up and say i'm not buying it. ainsley: yesterday you interview ed miranda devine, and that was a great interview, brian because she said and you reminded her, hamilton when the vice president pence went to go see it, he was booed or they didn't accept him remember that? we've all been to the show or i've been to the show and i loved the show it was great, i cried, it was emotional, a story of history but there were some digs at this administration and now, they're not left enough because now there's this cancel culture that's saying we need to ban hamilton. brian: right. it's streaming right now on disney. ainsley: a lot of people have joined disney plus and they are making money because people want to see hamilton. brian: i can't believe i like a musical. that's the biggest story emerging because i don't believe that singing and acting belong in the same genre. steve: i remember about 20 years ago you said you loved cats. brian: i never said that i don't get it. ainsley: let's hand it up to

5:19 am
to find out more. >> doesn't surprise me that over 80 people were shot over the weekend? >> it doesn't surprise me, it breaks my heart. it's just hell in the neighborhoods. >> it's innocent babies for them to get killed like that it's a tragedy. >> we say black lives matter but in the community it doesn't really matter. brian: on monday alone 19 people were shot three killed after a violent holiday weekend where seven-year-old natalia jones was gunned down while playing in her grandmother's yard. fox news lawrence joan spoke to her father and joins us live from chicago so that must not have been a very easy interview, lawrence. >> yeah, i've done a lot of these. they never get any easier. i want you to hear from the father but i want to give the audience something. when you go out and get these
5:20 am
interviews it's not just about the story of the shooting. you have to deal with a family that is grieving. before i talked to this father it was almost like a counseling session with the family dealing with the burial, and trying to the daughter was shot in the head. she's seven years old, right? shot in the head. imagine the repairs that have to be done because they want an open casket but the father is asking when is this going to end , so take a look. >> how many kids is going to have to die before we realize that we need to do better? i mean, when you find out it's one of your daughters or your sister or brother, then you'll feel the pain that i feel. it shouldn't have to come to that. we should be able to do something as a people, as a community. brian: and there's a picture of natalia and at seven years old, wrong place at the wrong time, but this isn't a rare story,
5:21 am
lawrence. >> yeah, natalia was not at a party. she was literally at her aunt's house playing in the front yard. there was no party or anything. the guys going after another guy , some gang war shoots her in a head and shoots the other guy in the feet. the guy has a long track record, right? and he's still allowed to be on the street and i think many people in the community are asking why. how does this continue to happen why do people with a long rap sheet. that's not criminal justice reform. when a violent offender these people don't want these criminal s on the street and they don't care about political parties, they don't care if you have an r or a d in front of your name. they just want someone to stop the bleeding and right now, there needs to be a serious conversation. i don't care where people stand on most issues but stop the violence in this community, and when i talk to people on the street they say, you know, the current leaders are corrupt.
5:22 am
that's just a fact of the matter , when you have governors and mayors that have gone through corruption schemes and you don't know who to trust, now, what gives me some hope is that my former chief in dallas texas, chief brown is now the superintendent, but when i talk with the family members, they said chief brown has to realize that they know his story about dallas, texas, but this is in chicago and they operate different in chicago. brian: i'm not sure what different means. it's just a right and wrong, but i want to ask you something lawrence. there's a big debate. terry cruz says why do black lives matter, not talking about black on black crime and he was told by that host that's not what they're there for. do you believe black lives matter should care about black on black crime? >> let me tell you something. for me, i speak out against police brutality. i speak out when the state abuses its power. i speak out also when innocent black lives are killed on the street as well.
5:23 am
this is a baby. i have to go in front of a tree and still see the blood stains from her being assassinated right in front of her aunt's house. so again for me, as somewhat of a conservative libertarian that values liberty and life, the issue should be are we defending our precious american family, whether it's at the hand of the state or it's at the hand of some gang banger who decided he didn't know how to aim and aimed at a seven-year-old girl and people need to be consistent on this. there are two separate issues but both are equally important. i am so sick and tired of people picking one side or the other. as my father says, as i talked to him yesterday, and i was trying to navigate my emotions about being outraged by both, you can cover both, and you can cover both with passion. why do you have to be in one camp or the other? brian: i agree. i hear you lawrence thanks so much appreciate it. >> thanks brother.
5:24 am
brian: this issue is not going away sadly. meanwhile the trump adminitration as we switch gears is pushing governors to reopen schools nationwide. could kids get back in the classroom and could that help rebuild economy? are people stopping the economy from being rebuilt? is politics playing a role? national economic council director larry kudlow is here live to discuss. from prom dresses... soccer practices... ...and new adventures. you hope the more you give the less they'll miss. but even if your teen was vaccinated against meningitis in the past... they may be missing vaccination for meningitis b. let's help protect them together. because missing menb vaccination could mean missing out on a whole lot more. ask your doctor if your teen is missing meningitis b vaccination. ask your doctor if your teen did you know liberty mutual customizes your car insurance ta-da! so you only pay for what you need? i should get a quote.

brian: caption will soon face some crime commission as well, while launching its new subscription service later this month. ainsley: jeff flock from our sister network fox business is live in schaumburg, illinois with the online shopping battle. hey, jeff. reporter: it seem, ainsley, they all want to be the other guy. it's kind of crazy. i'm here in front of what will soon be an amazon grocery store in the chicago suburbs, of course amazon is the king of online. they're not trying to get into brick-and-mortar and the king of brick-and-mortar walmart wants to be in amazon space, witness what we think will be called walmart plus. no comment from walmart yet but every belief is they will introduce this service that'll look a lot like amazon prime. it'll cost a lot less, about $20 less, $98 a month you get same day delivery on your groceries and some other stuff. you're going to get a discount at walmart gas stations and
5:29 am
access to early deals. if it sounds familiar, it's a lot like amazon prime, which costs about $119. its been around for 15 years, and has 150 million subscribers. so, walmart looking to get into that game. you get express delivery as well as well as video and there's speculation walmart may add some kind of free video as part of that as well. these are literally retail titan s and when you look at which one is bigger, well, amazon right now, $1.5 trillion in market capitalization and you know how many zeros there are in a trillion? i had to look it up there are 12 that's a lot of money. walmart is about a third the size, 359 billion, but you know, it's funny they both aren't happy doing what they are doing they want to get in the other guys game. we'll see how it goes. steve: interesting stuff all
5:30 am
right jeff flock live out in illinois jeff thank you. meanwhile let's move down to florida. governor ron desantis laying out the facts and florida's speaking coronavirus cases. >> we are prepared for this. median age of our new cases was in the 50s about a month and a half ago and now that's dropped into the 30s. we've had days where the median age was 33 and obviously that's important because people who are healthy and under 40, you know, the death rate of this thing is very close to zero, so that's significant. brian: well, gop congressman brian mass joins us live from florida with an update. congressman things have not been great in florida as it's dealing with the virus. i understand 32 hospitals are dangerously close to reaching capacity showing just 10% or less availability. are you worried about this , and is there something about this strain, or is it something about the people afflicted that are causing the death rates to stay low while the cases are high? >> look, being in contact with all of the hospitals in my area,
5:31 am
i'm aware that they're looking at all of the numbers, how many beds they have, how many ventilators they have everything that they need to manage this appropriately. no, we don't want to see any numbers spike anywhere, but people have to have that ability to go out there and have the contact that they feel comfortable doing. we know that that's going to result in an increase in cases of coronavirus but people have to have that freedom in the end to manage the risks. we know that gets us to this place but it's still something that has to occur, freedom is what it's all about. ainsley: congressman tell us what's going on down there in florida. i understand there are a lot of hospitals that don't have any more beds and icu but the majority of people that got it are because they are young and that's why you aren't seeing as many fatalities. what are the facts down there? >> look these are the facts so the governor is looking at number one, what is the statistical data whose being afflicted right now, what is their age, what is the death rate, where is this occurring, is it occurring in certain
5:32 am
places and how does that effect what we can do in the future in terms of planning for schools to open, what about the teachers what about the students and parents they are going to come in contact with. all of this is going on in the governor' office so he can make the best decisions for the state of florida so that other families can plan to get back to work because the kids are going to be at school or home schooled or they are going to be on online school or whatever the case may be. the governor is monitoring all of this on a day by day and hour by hour basis so that you can make the best decisions for florida and he has done that from the beginning. steve: and as you know, congressman, ron desantis has decided that the florida schools are going to open next month. you talk to your constituents all the time about the plans being made. are they confident that this is the right move because there are all sorts of things to worry about but at the same time if we don't reopen the schools, you really can't reopen the economy completely. >> you can't pretend that there's not a mix of people on both sides of the issue and it
5:33 am
doesn't matter whether they are republican, democrat independent , there's some people that want to see things remain more shuttered and there's some people that want to see things remain more open. i fall on the side of wanting to see things be much more open and let individuals make those decisions themselves. understand that you can assume that surfaces are contaminated and there's ways you can protect yourself, keep distance, clean things, have good hygiene but in the end take the data that is the best information available for you and make the best decision for you and your family brian: congressman brian mast, thank you. all right, meanwhile straight ahead, national economic council director larry kudlow is ready for us, next.

steve: president trump yesterday pushing for schools to reopen across the country which is also
5:38 am
key to getting parents and the rest of america back to work and get the economy back up and running. brian: here to react is the director of the national economic council larry kudlow. larry, the 4.8 million jobs is stunningly great news but with texas, arizona, and florida suffering from the coronavirus numbers in those cases, what does that do to july projections >> well, i was hoping you'd ask me about the mexican president, but to answer your actual question, which i understand is hot stuff, look, we've got these pockets there's no question about it we've got these hotspot s, texas, florida, california, arizona, perhaps a little bit in georgia and we've also got some declines by the way, new york and new jersey have come back down, so that's a good sign. how will it affect the economic numbers? well we're looking very very
5:39 am
carefully. this is probably a july story. you're right we don't have the july jobs number. we've had tremendous bursts of jobs in may and june. yesterday was reported tremendous record hiring rates for example, people are starting to quit their jobs again, which is extraordinary in order to shop around for even better jobs and wages. look, we're just looking at it. i think, frankly, these issues are tough, a lot of heartburn and heartbreak here but nonetheless, as deborah birx said, it seems like with the new testing, it's really the young people who have been hit the most and as president said many times, the vice president, they are the ones with the low fatality rate in fact the overall fatality rate has been continuously low and in fact is sloping down again, so i get it, the cases are up. it could have an impact in some of these cities and metropolitan
5:40 am
areas in terms of jobs, and openings, but i just think we have to work our way through this. we know what to do, best practices you've got to be tested especially in these hotspot areas. distancing is vital, face cover ing is vital, good hygiene is vital. we know what to do. we know the right mitigation which has worked and if we use that wholeheartedly and respect each other, i think we'll get out of this pretty well and it will not stop the v-shaped recovery. ainsley: we'll talk about his meeting with the president today , in just a minute but first i want to ask you about this too. there's a headline in the new york times says investors start to ask what if biden becomes president can you answer that? >> well that's right. there's been a number of stories on the financial channels and as you say the new york times. what we know is theres going to be a lot of tax increases, president trump's entire 2017
5:41 am
tax cut which is for individuals, which is for businesses, large and small, families, child credits and things of that sort, increasing the bottom end tax relief and even giving tax refunds. all that looks like it's going to be repealed. now can you imagine, we're coming out of this pandemic and yeah, we see a very strong second half this year, probably 20% which is great, but what about 2021 and 2022 what are businesses going to do? stop investing? i think it's a huge danger to the stock market but perhaps more important for all of america for the blue collar workers who have done so well at least up to the pandemic this is a job killer. it's an absolute job killer. if the it's a recessionary policy and it's going to damage u.s. wealth and investment and i just can't imagine why you'd want to go on a tax hiking orgi right now it just makes no common practical sense steve: from that let's shift to
5:42 am
the topic you really want to talk about, u.s. mca. president of mexico heading into your town today, this is obviously a victory lap for president trump. >> well thank you for pitching that. the people said that's what i was going to come up with but i'm ready for everything after my vacation so look, let me just say one thing. we're getting along very well with president obrador, and they are going to sign a joint declaration today with friendship and cooperation. more to the point, the u.s. mca deal is like it gets no respect, it's nafta 2.0 or whatever you want to call it it is far more important in terms of dollars and cents and trade than frankly the china phase i deal. in fact it's about two times, maybe a little more than two times as important, two-way trade with canada and mexico. steve: larry why doesn't it get any respect? >> well i don't know.
5:43 am
probably has to come on "fox & friends" more often. you're the only people that want to talk about it with me so thank you for that. look this thing not only helps north american domestic content it's a huge boost for automobiles and all forms of manufacturing, agriculture and different forms of dairy, cattle men, ranchers are going to benefit. here is one for you. there's a very good intellectual property protection paragraph in this thing, which means as the three countries respect this deal, then you're going to have an explosion of entrepreneurship and new innovation in north america, take the lead the world lead on this. these things probably one point per year, one percentage point of gdp as this thing gets going per year, couple hundred thousand jobs. i don't know why people don't pay more attention to it. we're looking for growth following the pandemic. we don't want tax hikes and re- regulation.
5:44 am
what we want is things that will help all americans, technology people, financial people, the currency stability in there, car people, the manufacturing people, the farm people. it'll help everybody. it's exactly the medicine we need and i wish everyone would follow fox & friends lead in discussing this. it's huge. brian: and i would not be surprised a lot of people are looking to follow our leader. you used to be a talk show host larry so you know what it's like to be against the clock. real quick the other big trade deal is phase i with china. should we consider that dead? >> oh, no, no no no, please. look we have a lot of issues with china. a lot of problems with china. national security advisor o'brien, we don't want the railroad retirement fund in the u.s. to invest in china because of the fraud and lack of information and national security problems. there are a lot of problems going on in hong kong, tremendous national security problems but the one area we are
5:45 am
engaging, we're going to hold them accountable for these other areas but we are still very much engaged in the phase i china trade deal and ambassador lighthizer said this many times as has the president so that is not dead by any means. other areas we have tremendous difficulties with china and we will be taking further actions. ainsley: larry thanks so much for coming on. >> thank you. appreciate it. ainsley: you're welcome let's hand it up to carlie with headlines. reporter: that's right we begin your headlines with a 15- year-old boy survives alone in the wilderness for more than 30 hours hiding from a gunman who killed his faster. family members say he was off- roading with his son at taho e national forest when a gunman opened fire on friday. authorities searched the area for hours until they found him. the suspect was arrested. police say the shooting appears to be a random act of violence.
5:46 am
>> harvard and mit are suing homeland security and i.c.e. over a new policy. it requires foreign students with certain visas to take in- person classes or be sent home. it seeks a temporary restraining order to bar the police from being enforced. it comes as hundreds of berkeley students plan a bogus course to shield international students from deportation. a student tweeting they are " creating a one unit in-person student-run class." how about that? >> now trending stories on fox first up a black lives matter protester is facing a rare leak charge for allegedly showing and talking about a stolen des moines police document on local tv. the 21-year-old is currently out on bond. next, the governor of new jersey is facing backlash as the state 's motor vehicles offices reopen with long lines check that out. residents claiming governor phil murphy could have done more to

5:48 am
rough surf all along the coast from the southeast up towards the mid-atlantic and northeast as we head into the weekend so watching fay other big story is the extreme heat across portions of the midwest we have a cold front moving through that's going to bring the potential for storms and still very warm across the southwest as well, where we have heat advisories there, as well as fire danger. so we'll keep you up-to-date on all of the above and the potential for tropical storm fay coming up too. steve, ainsley, brian back to you. brian: janice thanks meanwhile washington university could drop the robert e. lee in its name. where does it end? our next guest is fighting against the cancel culture on campus, but first let's check in with san sandra smith. >> sandra: brian kilmeade, big morning coming up couple live events we're watching just ahead the supreme court opinions are expected, judge andrew napolitano standing by for that

steve: the faculty at washington lee university has voted to remove robert e. lee's name from the title of that liberal arts college. the faculty affairs committee writing "lee does not represent who we are and who we want to be lee cannot just symbolize our community any more." here with reaction is the president of speech first down in virginia, nicole mealy, good morning to you. >> good morning. steve: here is the problem. i was going to say here is the problem with removing robert e. lee from washington and lee. he was actually president of the university after the civil war and he's buried in the
5:54 am
chapel on campus. it's going to be hard to get rid of him. >> it is going to be hard to get rid of him and stonewall jackson's grave is in the same town so it's really hard to erase history. what i think was so interesting about that vote was there was actually somebody who also suggested removing the name washington from it so it would just be university. steve: so while the faculty suggested this , and voted for it and there has been some pressure from the alumni and the students, do you think they ultimately will remove lee from washington and lee? >> i think they might. same thing happened here in arlington, virginia last year there was washington and lee high school and now it's washington liberty, so i think that this is a trend that is going to continue because these activists now, the question is as you said before, where does this end? because the goal is not to erase just the confederate history, but to erase the founding father s and so much history so that i think a lot of the activists can rewrite it.
5:55 am
ghandi statues are being torn down, come on. steve: sure, earlier we were talking, nicole, about the fact that j. k. rowling and 150 other writers called for an end end end to cancel culture and you find that interesting don't you? >> i think it's great. welcome to the fight. some part of me questions where have you been until now kind of reminds me of that quote first they came for the socialists and i did not speak up because i was not a socialist. now they're coming for the left these prominent figures want to speak out and that's great, but you know, because for so long we've been told conservatives have been told you're crazy this doesn't exist. that being said, i think these famous people are, they have millions of dollars and they will not actually be canceled because they are famous. i worry about the high school students, the average citizens who don't have the resources to fight back who are piled on by disney stars, and then people, you know, strangers on the internet and twitter tell them kill yourself. turns out mental health is okay
5:56 am
for everybody except for conservatives. steve: indeed and that's why some suggested that what are they talking about canceling the musical hamilton now that it's on disney plus and a lot of people don't like that. all right, nicole neily, the president of speech first we thank you very much for joining us live. >> thank you. steve: all right we'll step aside for "fox & friends" a couple minutes away. >> ♪ ♪ - when i noticed my sister moving differently,
