3:00 am
remember, set your dvr for 4:00 a.m. weekday morning for "fox & friends first." jillian: back here tomorrow 4:00 a.m. fox and friends starts right now. have a good day . >> is it legal? >> well, you know, i will leave that up to the attorney. >> if the democrats want to challenge us in court and hold up unemployment benefits, they are going to have a lot of explaining to do. >> newly declassified documents that could indicate fresh criminality. >> somebody needs to go jail for this. this is a second lie. this is a second crime. >> the whether a they said was
3:01 am
china would prefer joe biden. whether they do, that's their conclusion that they would prefer joe biden. >> 64 final round. california kid is the new star in the game of gulf. >> oh, boy. >> good morning, everybody. it is august 10th, 2020. and we start with a fox news alert. you are looking at chicago illinois. chaos in the windy city overnight. crowds clashing with police as looters target stores across the city overnight, ainsley. ainsley: that's right, steve. and todd piro joins us live with what sparked the unrest in the windy city. todd? >> steve, ainsley and brian, good morning. hundreds of people mobbing chicago's magnificent mile smashing windows and fighting with officers.
3:02 am
crowds hitting several luxury stores for hours. transit to the downtown city area has been suspended. no word on any arrests or injuries. all this unrest coming hours after a man was shot by police on the city's south side. officers say he offered fire during a chase. forcing them to fire back. angry crowds throwing objects at officers and spraying one with mace. the deputy police chief blamed this man for stirring up the crowds. >> officer shot the man again even with he told them i'm down. >> suspect was brought to a local hospital. no word right now on his condition. administrative duties. this all comes on the heals of a violent weekend in the city. at least 35 people shot. three people killed. steve, anxiously and brian, back to you. >> thanks, todd. it's amazing what's going on. because this started off with george floyd and the way he died
3:03 am
and what it means for race in america. and now it's just turned tout flat out seems to be a war against america and american cities in particular. in fact, i look at this one call from this black protester in portland who says we are struggling to have our voices heard it. happened so much that the things that we care about get hijacked get put on the back burner. that's exactly what's happening. what i thought was really amazing when the attorney general sat down with mark levin he sees the whole comprehensive look at what is happening in our cities and he sees warfare. listen. >> they were trying to impeach him from day one. they have shredded the norms of our system. and i think it's because of the desire for power. in the old days you could have friends across the aisle, you know, politics was part of your life, but it wasn't all-consuming. i think what's hand is that the left wing has really withdrawn
3:04 am
and pulled away from the umbrella of classical liberal values that have undergirded our society since our founding. i think the left really represents rousseaun revolutionary senator believes in tearing down the system. they believe in complete political victory. they are not interested in compromise. brian: it could be political victory i don't know what platform is anti-american from taking down the statues to destroying our institutions to not having a job. and not even representing racial unrest. it's called american unrest amongst americans it, seems. add to that the defunding of the police which is rampant in over 25 major cities. steve: you know, brian, when he started he was talking about how the black lives matter protests devolved into riots. but it was antifa, he said, that was behind all of that.
3:05 am
and what they did was they would hijack a peaceful protest. and he also said to mark levin last night and he said that is what they have done, they have hijacked this particular movement and moment in america but, at the same time he says that the media are buying in to that and they established a narrative, ainsley, where they just say, you know, it's -- we don't know what they are talking about. these are peaceful protesters. but as we know, they are not all peaceful protesters. ainsley: yes. he said if you watch most of the networks they are going to say these are peaceful protesters he said they are not telling the truth. these are really riots that are organized antifa. like you said use the word hijack, steve. they are hijacking these demonstrations and they are provoking violence. he gave an interesting analogy that i thought was worth repeating. he said being like a official when he talks about the guerrilla warfare. being like a fish, swimming in the ocean the way a guerrilla moves through the people.
3:06 am
hides out among the people fish nut ocean shrouds themselves in first amendment activity go. into demonstrations, field themselves and that's where they swim. brian: if you look at the 60's with the racial unrest. if you want to know what the issues were and how to solve them, you sit down and listen to james baldwin. you look at martin luther king jr. you talk to malcolm x and they sit down and meet the press and sit down with the news stars of that day and say this is exactly what's wrong with america and this is how i want to fix it. there is nobody to talk to on the other side. because it's been swamped by shirtless skateboarders who evidently are getting paid direct deposit from antifa. so let's talk about 2020 and what it means for our future. i thought it was pretty interesting. hard not to like dr. jill biden. will america got a chance to meet her over the last 8 years. very impressive. amazing, because, when it comes down to meet with the press. she is able to do what her
3:07 am
husband can't. that's meet with the press face to face. here is what is going in to the vice president's pick. it will be his. >> do you see yourself as someone who will be an advisor to the president? >> it's a marriage. and you listen to one another. you talk things out with one another. >> have you weighed in on how think would be a good vice president for him and who might not be so great? >> you know, we have talked about the different women candidates, but it's got to be joe's decision, who he feelst most comfortable with, who shares his values. and that's what he has always said, that he and barack had. brian: he hemmed himself, in i'm going to pick a woman. a woman of color. and here are the finalists. and there you go. we have the same people talking about michael walls to susan rice to kamala harris on down. we will see who he gels with best and see if he kamala harris
3:08 am
a frenkted family. this reporter sits down one-on-one with joe biden and does a one-on-one interview with jill biden but does one with joe biden from what location? steve: what's interesting is, and there you see the back of rita braver's head. she is an excellent reporter. she is talking to joe biden, it looks like on a laptop or on an ipad whereas she was actually in the same room with dr. jill biden, which is curious because and i think somebody from the campaign yesterday said to peter doocy who i understand over the weekend was named the next vice presidential nominee by joe biden when he was out on the bike trail. he said somebody from the campaign said, you know, it's interesting that joe biden can go to church and take selfies, and go on bike rides and things like that, but he cannot appear in public and he does not appear, ainsley, as well, to members of the press often in
3:09 am
person. ainsley: i thought he was going to pick a woman but apparently he picked your son-in-law. your son who is going to be vice president he said it's you. steve: i got news for you, peter doocy is not 35 yet so he cannot be vice president and that's the video right there. ainsley: so they also interviewed her -- that was peter out trying to get an interview with him. who is going to be the vice president. if you missed that you should go back and miss it. i picked my candidate and it's you. and he keeps driving on or riding on. right. she also talked about losing their son and that pulls at everyone's heart strings if you are a parent and you have lost someone. i understand that's understandably utmost horrific things you could ever go through. when they asked her about hunter biden and some of the accusations against him and allegations against burisma told we already lost a child. that's worse than that we will get through this as a couple. rita asked her about the allegations about some of the women about him getting too
3:10 am
close to them. she said he made them feel uncomfortable and realized and aware of it so he keeps his distance now. brian: most important thing to bring up hunter biden is an adult he made the decisions and millions of dollars. maybe they can get the best therapy possible to get them through this time. maybe hunter biden should sit sit down and explain investments in air force 2 in china a and hedge fund. ainsley: said it's not fair to go after our kids. brian: the kid is 40 and very much involved in what the president was doing in his last couple of years. meanwhile, nancy pelosi was brought this question. it looks like according to the director of national intelligence that russia prefers president trump to win the election and that china prefers joe biden to win the election. so to show nancy pelosi show how tough nancy pelosi would be on n
3:11 am
would be on china this is what she said. >> i take no -- i take no criticism-out chinese, what they said was china would prefer joe biden, whether they do, that's their conclusion that they would prefer joe biden. brian: right. she says joe biden, of course china would prefer that look at what the president has done along with secretary of state mike pompeo to china. they are stopping them every way they can possible as they steam roll hong kong in comes sanctions. take over the south china sea, in comes the seventh fleet go. after tijuana we send our health and human secretary over there sanctioning individual people. what did will will joe biden do, what did barack obama do. leave off the car go section of air force 1. will will that's what china sees is weakness. wife wungtsd they want more of that steve. [. steve: on friday night said if joe biden wins, china would own our country. meanwhile, let's talk a little
3:12 am
bit about what the president did on friday night. and that was he signed an executive order. you know, if you have been paying attention to what's going on on capitol hill, the democrats and republicans in the white house could not get together on an extension of the unemployment benefits. they ran out the supplemental 600 bucks you got extra from the federal government ran out last week. and so rather than have people go without and there are so many people who are still really really hurting given the pandemic. the president did what he could do. and he signed an executive order. i know there are people on both sides of the aisle who are saying does he have the authority to do that? well, apparently he is tapping money, $44 billion from the national disaster relief fund usually used for hurricanes or wildfires. he said this is a national problem. i'm going to use it does chuck schumer think he can do this? here is what he said yesterday on abc. >> the president's executive
3:13 am
orders described in one word could be paltry. the event that the country club is just what trump does a big show but it doesn't do anything. as the american people look at these executive orders, they will see they don't come close to doing the job. >> well, county president do this? is it legal? is it legal? >> well, you know, i will leave that up to the attorneys. it doesn't do the job. steve: it does sound like and that's what you heard a lot of. it's not legal over the weekend. but, for chuck schumer to say that, and ultimately ainsley his point was it's paltry because the democrats want at least a trillion dollars to bail out the states. part of the money the president would extend in this temporary unemployment benefit that would run through december, past the election, is the states would have to pony up $100.
3:14 am
as all sides realize, the states are in financial troubles, although mr. mnuchin said yesterday that there would be some flexibility on whether or not, ainsley, the states would have to contribute the extra 100 bucks. ainsley: the president wants states to contribute 25% and federal government 75% of that $400 per week as we talked about last week a lot. remember friday the $600 was exexpiring. no americans would get that $600. president said let's give it to them until we can come to an agreement at least for the next week and democrats said no. the democrats say they want $3 trillion but yet they didn't want to give that $600 to those individuals in need. isn't this about the people? people out there not working. we are worried about some people not being able to pay their bills. hear about all of those stories. by the grace of god people have their jobs. a lot of people can't afford their bills right now and they
3:15 am
are worried. it's been a very odd and stressful summer for so many families so the president is saying let's continue this until december 6th. and democrats are pushing back on it. brian: at least for three weeks the 600 and maybe get a deal in between. student loan payments no interests until 12/31. immediate more money to spend tore pay bills. and the supplemental unemployment he will give 300. the states will give 100. this is, bottom line is, bracket the whole thing. it's unconstitutional. how dare he do that. you have two sides who can't come to a deal. they meet countless hours. they walk out and just yell at each other and demean each other. the president of the united states goes enough. i'm going to do. this because i don't want to it be a bystander because congress is not doing their job. people want to criticize the president. at least is he throwing a life preserver out there. it might not be the best life preserver. it might be constitutionally challenged. in the end he is taking action.
3:16 am
what did both sides do over the weekend? nothing. this creates additional leverage for them to take action. the president would love to take these four things and say we don't need them anymore. get to work and come up with a deal. jillian is always at work. she has been at work on air since 4:00 in the morning. what else do you have for us, jillian? jillian: good morning. let's start off with a threat. i don't know if you heard this a fire ripped through rachael ray's home in upstate new york. the celebrate chef was inside when it started. ray, her husband and dog bella are all safe. she has been filming episodes of her talk show in the kitchen during the pandemic. no word on what started the fire or the extent of damage. the united states marking a grim milestone with more than 5 million cases of coronavirus as the nation nears 163,000 deaths. texas setting new records as it battles a surge in covid-19 cases the state's pot of rate

3:18 am

[laughter] jillian: oh, man. the lid fell off the jug just as he lifted it, thankfully, it was not broken. good thing. ainsley: beautiful trophy. steve: i have a feeling from now on they are going to take that thing on there because that's embarrassing. ainsley: warn the next person who wins don't shake it. ainsley: we watched it. family loved it. jillian, thank you very much. it is 6:18 here in the east. one week away from the democratic national convention and still no word on who will be joe biden's running mate. but our next guest says if biden picks karen bass, it will cost him a key state in november. that story coming up. ♪ ♪ the waiting is the hardest part ♪ ♪r

xfinity delivers gig speeds to more homes than anyone. ainsley: well with the democratic convention one week away presumptive nominee joe biden still mum the word on who is going to be his running mate. last week more than 300 dnc delegates and members signed a letter urging him to choose congresswoman bass. there's her picture. saying this she is the best choice among vice presidential candidates under consideration to help unify our party and move our nation forward. joining us now to react is commentary writer for "the washington examiner" tiana lowe. good morning to you. >> good morning, ainsley. >> what do you think if he does choose congresswoman bass? this is the congresswoman who recently in 2016 referred to castro as. [speaking spanish] i don't know if the voters in florida are going to joe biden
3:24 am
was losing among latinos in the primary to bernie sanders except in florida because of that extremely diverse cuban anti-communist latino population. only two democrats have only one the presidency by losing florida. most recently bill clinton in the 1992 spoiler election. i mean, if democrats all they have to do is not throw the selection and not make it a referendum on joe biden. will choosing karen bass give the trump campaign in kind donation. ainsley: showed clip from jill biden when asked who he would pick as vice president. someone is he comfortable with and shares his values and that's what he always had with barack. if she is sympathizing with castro, those are her values or once were, at least, what does that say about joe biden? >> so joe biden won the entire
3:25 am
primary by bucking the party base that has moved increasingly far to the left. he rejected medicare for all. he rejected the green new deal. and now aoc is on his climate change panel, stephanie kelton who is a believer in the monetary theory on economic panel. these are increasingly left wing decisions. the more he does this and allows the trump campaign to define who is he and quite frankly making it quite easy by not leaving his basement. why is jill doing all these in person interviews and he is not? so choosing someone like karen bass who is a democratic establishment referred to as a compromised candidate, frankly it's nuts. no other way to describe it than that. ainsley: what do you think about his time being? one week away from the dnc is that a mistake or really rally his base and get more excitement and people watch on television? >> so this is sort of the fun house mirror version of the clinton primary. she actually clinched the
3:26 am
nomination relatively late and joe biden did so relatively early because joe biden is not as unlikeable as hillary clinton. it might be a benefit of him to give all the oppo research about candidates coming out now, but he did really box himself in by saying he would only choose a woman and now increasingly the pressure is on to choose a woman of color and predominantly a black woman. unfortunately given the political reality, there are no black governors in the country and only one black woman senator kamala harris. this really that paper this rows down his options and means it sort of turned into this intersectional catfight of susan rice and kamala harris and karen bass dumping on each other leaving him with very few good options. not that late in terms of the historical scope of this. think about it. he will be older on inauguration day than ronald reagan, our oldest president ever on his last day in office. this is not a great position for the front runner of the race. ainsley: tiana lowe with the washington examiner.
3:27 am
latest headline is biden's vp choice can only hurt him at this point. tee anna, good to see you. thank you so much. >> thank you. ainsley: you are welcome. one year since epstein's death in a new york city jail. dr. baden was hired by the family to investigate his death. he says there are still questions that need to be answered. is he going to join us next. a lot of healthy foods are very acidic and they're actually pulling out the minerals from the enamel. i like to recommend pronamel to my patients. pronamel will help push the minerals back into the enamel, to keep the enamel strong. i know it works. and i hear nothing but great things from my patients that have switched to it.

very clear after you examined the body and looked at the evidence, you said the evidence points to murder. >> right. right, steve. the injuries to the neck, the three fractures in the neck are much more typical of a strangulation than of a suicidal hanging. and we still don't know, a year later, position of jeffrey epstein's body was. weighs hanging? was he on the ground? the noose found next to him made from a sheet. sheet.

was on that noose. she should have had d.n.a. a long time ago did. it match epstein or somebody else? we don't know if the door of the cell was locked or unlocked. steve: right. and that's because of the guards who were supposedly keeping an eye on him apparently were the video camera wasn't on for some reason, was the door open? what is going on with the guards right now? i know there is a federal investigation. >> well, they were arrested and charged federally because they won't say what the condition of epstein or the cell was when they found them. that's bizarre why the guards wouldn't tell anybody. they are now awaiting federal trial and can get up to 15 years for not saying that the findings
3:34 am
were when they found the body. they were supposed to go to trial back in march. but because of the coronavirus, still pending, and they won't say what jeffrey epstein's body was when they found the body and then moved it around. steve: doesn't that seem a little fishy to you, dr. baden? >> i do this work for the state jail, prisoning the past 30 years, and guards sometimes fall asleep on the job. they get minor punishment for it. for a guard to risk being sent to jail for not explaining what was going on at the time that they weren't [inaudible] is bizarre. just doesn't make sense. steve: and that's why we are

inflammation in your eye might be to, looks like a great day for achy, burning eyes over-the-counter eye drops typically work by lubricating your eyes and may provide temporary relief. ha! these drops probably won't touch me. xiidra works differently, targeting inflammation that can cause dry eye disease. what is that?
3:39 am
xiidra, noooo! it can provide lasting relief. xiidra is the only fda approved treatment specifically for the signs and symptoms of dry eye disease. one drop in each eye, twice a day. don't use if you're allergic to xiidra. common side effects include eye irritation, discomfort or blurred vision when applied to the eye, and unusual taste sensation. don't touch container tip to your eye or any surface. after using xiidra, wait 15 minutes before reinserting contacts. got any room in your eye? talk to an eye doctor about twice-daily xiidra. i prefer you didn't! xiidra. not today, dry eye. >> part of the rule of law is not using the political justice system as a political tool it. has been in the past.
3:40 am
the russia gate thing was an instance of that used as a weapon. and what i want to do is make it clear that we will indict people only when satisfied with the standards of the department has been met. we believe a crime has been committed by this person and we have proof beyond a reasonable doubt to prove it. ainsley: that's our attorney general bill barr on with mark levin yesterday. let's bring on dan bongino, former secret service agent and seat service officer. what was he talking about not using the political justice system as a political tool? >> well, i think barr has been president trump's finest appointment. i don't think there is any question amongst a lot of folks throughout that are reasonable not the tds infected folks. but he is right. ainsley, if we are going to use one standard of justice, which i absolutely believe barr believes in and i think all sane people agree, then let's do that and that standard of justice should be well, what have we prosecuted
3:41 am
people for before? and that's been for lying. obviously you have had the roger stone case, the george papadopoulos case and for financial machinations like paul manafort with his dealings over with foreign governments and some money exchanged. let's apply that standard also to people who were in the obama orbit not because they were in the obama or bi orbit but that's standard. we know people have lied under oath. people have lied in front of the fisa court to get warrants to engage in political spying. we know there was financial wheeling and dealing in order to launder or clean the money that was used to pay fusion gps and run through couple different people first. so i would expect that those investigations would happen, too. and we'll get to the bottom of that my general point here the take away that's a great standard and bill barr is right. because you work for the obama administration shouldn't be a shield either. that's what i'm saying. you know, bill barr is not republican attorney general.
3:42 am
he is the attorney general. brian: so let's stwoich another area of your expertise and the raush investigation and what led into the mueller probe and why this matters not only to find out what happened in 2016 because it's a problem but because joe biden is running for president and what did he know? senator lindsey graham sat down on maria's show yesterday and said what he knowsment one avenue is what they learned from sally yates and the other is what they're finding out about the steele dossier and the subsource. listen. they told the senate intel committee everything is fine. somebody needs to go to jail for this. this is a second lie. this is a second crime. they lied to the fisa court they got rebuked by the fisa court putting all fisa applications the person who briefed the senate intel committee had to be part of crossfire hurricane. why would you keep telling a lie. if they told a truth to the senate intel committee in 2018, the dossier is not reliable it.
3:43 am
would expose the crime they committed to the fisa court. brian: dan, just for the audience, not for you outside. the reason is the subsource, who was dicey at best, went to russia but worked for the brookings institute the big russian named going to blow the name. knew what donald trump was up to which was a lie. will knew about it. what lindsey graham was saying the fbi knew about it. the steele dossier was made up. the subsource made it up barr talked and briefed the committee how bad the dossier was and most liely authentic that person is believed to be andy mccabe. what's the significance? >> if you missed baltimore's show you missed out on not one but two enormous interviews. he had on stephan halper's under
3:44 am
study launched a nuke yesterday. everyone else will bury it. why is what happened with this fbi briefing important? there is a couple of reasons. in february of 2018 when this briefing happened, it's now a year after the fbi categorically knows the information they used to spy on trump is fake. they have interviewed the source was. they are like b.s., it's barr talk, it's nonsense. it's not true. it's unfair rumor. everybody tracking me here. this is important. why is that particular date important? you say it's a year after? , yeah, that's bad enough. but, brian. wherwhen was christopher wray appointed the fbi directors. put down third or fourth fbi director in fbi history? he was appointed august -- sworn in august 2nd of 2017. so this is the guy assigned to clean up the mess and seven months later he sends the fbi to capitol hill to brief senate
3:45 am
committee on a source they know is garbage and credible. brian: andy mccabe accounting director and didn't do the briefing. >> wait, i'm not done. it gets worse. yeah, bill barr is on the job a month after this. so that should say to you something. bill barr had already promised that he wasn't going to irntsd fear with the collusion investigation. so, guys, everybody figure this out. why does the fbi under christopher wray send someone up to the senate to lie about a source and insist he was validated when he wasn't? because they wanted to keep bill barr out of looking in their fridge rarity. that's why. they wanted to keep the special counsel investigation going. they knew bill barr would figure out this whole thing was bogus. do you have any idea what a huge story this is? the fbi lied to keep bill barr from seeing what was really going on underneath the covers. and it was ugly.
3:46 am

brian: president trump signing four executive orders fast tracking relief to americans as democrats are in a stalemate. >> democrats are uno. obstructing all of it. we are going to provide relief to the american worker. brian: among the things the president wrote into law saturday $400 per week for unemployment. extension of student loan relief to december 31st. protection from evictions we think stress it. tax holiday for some workers who make under $100,000 to the end of the year. host of charles payne. we all agree this isn't yellow light but is this the next best thing? >> absolutely. i was going to say the clock is ticking but we already struck midnight for a whole lot of folks particularly with money
3:53 am
ethics period two weeks ago or a week and a half ago. you know, brian, it's really crazy that it has to have come to all of this where the president has been forced to do these executive orders and, listen, obviously, this is just touching on some of the issues brought about when you shut down an entire economy. and it keeps shutting parts of it down and even when it's reopened it's not fully reopened. i'm not sure, congress, i read, where some folks are talking about going to court. do you really go to court to stop people from getting extra money so they can pay their bills. to say stop them from being evicted from their homes or do you really finally negotiate in good faith? the parties were far apart from the very beginning. you can sense this was going to happen. it's a shame because it's a slow motion train wreck and we knew it. we saw it. we saw the cavalier attitude. really, the un -- the kind of negotiating that wasn't done in good faith. when you start at 3.4 trillion, that's not good faith. when you throw out 70% of what
3:54 am
somebody is earning during a pandemic that's not going to work. they started so far apart. president trump did whatever he could do because obviously he couldn't help the states out. you know, the congress does control the purse. there is no doubt about that. there are existing programs that the president is trying to dip into that he wants to be able to help the american public. brian: charles, he wants to help. issuing executive orders. he would rather not do that what's he supposed to do spend the weekend wallow and wonder if they are going to get something down the line. there is no hope with these negotiations. flint firefighters union do deals every day. additional leverage to spur action on both sides so he can toss out these executive orders. it's so clear. >> it's so clear and it's also obvious that, you know, the swiftness of the initial efforts by the federal government spearheaded by president trump by the federal reserve, worked wonders. you compare the great recession to what happened here and by the way, this is a much more dire
3:55 am
economic back drop. and it's been absolutely remarkable. but all based on swiftness. it was all based on everyone working together. all the ohrs rolling in the same direction. now all of a sudden typical politics maybe it's an election year, i don't know why but to me it's maddening why the president had to do this but he had to do this. >> republicans don't want to sign off on any more spending. you will not get many to sign off on a trillion let alone go half way and have 2 trillion. that's an issue. when it comes to evictions. you have to ask banks to back off the landlords. not just ask the land lords to back off the tenants. they are not bad people they have banks asking for loan money bank. >> there is no doubt about it. a lot of banks did that banks they could see the trending that ultimately they would rather get paid than have to go through the process of evictions. particularly with the dynamics

4:03 am
>> the idea that you without any request from the voter would mail out your voting list to all these thousands and thousands of ballots is scary. because most of those mailings go to a lot of addresses where the people no longer live. they could easily create a situation where there is going to be a contested election. and people have to have confidence in the outcome or we're going to have real problems in this country. and i think the people who want to experiment with different ways of voting right now, which are predictably, you know, can predictably create problems of integrity are playing with fire and grossly irresponsible. ainsley: i think if everyone had a chance to do mail-in voting if you trusted the system, it would be a good thing especially during covid. but the only way to really ensure that your vote is being heard and getting counted a lot of people mistrust either the
4:04 am
post office or mistrust the system or maybe they fall under the rules they were able to do this if you look at new york state primary 403,000 ballots were mailed in only 319,000 uncounted. that is almost 100,000 were rejected. 21% of those mail-in ballots could not be counted. and then when you hear the attorney general talk about these ballots being mailed to people who no longer live at that address or heard in the past people no longer alive getting these ballots, do you trust the system? someone is living there? how do we know they are not taking those ballots and voting for the person that they already voted for and then they vote twice? >> the biggest difference and if i could steal dan bongino's line. pay attention, people. the biggest difference is that if you are somebody that needs an absentee ballot or because of the coronavirus have to vote remote, request it. that means you have the address verified. you went out of your way this is
4:05 am
my intention. ainsley: you are actually alive. brian: if you just go do what nevada did and give everybody a ballot and go wait a second. do i go to the polls? i do not go to the polls? i do vote there or am i going to go to the polls, vote remotely on my ballot, mail it in and then when you go to the voter rolls and show up at the boils did i vote already not register yeffet. should i vote twice? are you going to be able to account the difference? you are creating more chaos in the system if you flood the i don't know with these ballots. what ainsley just went over. we are screwin screwing it up ne primaries. what makes you think we are going to get it november 3rd. at least go through the system that says i request the ballot and there might be more requests than usual as opposed to blanket. steve: right. well, what the attorney general has said is predominantly mail-in voting. if you did it that way, it is for the most part not secure. and what he has cited in the
4:06 am
past is around the stimulus checks. where everybody got 1200 bucks. something like 20% of the stimulus checks were misdirected. did not wind up in the right hands and, ainsley, to your point a moment ago, about dead people, $1 billion of stimulus money went to people who could not cash the check because they are dead. ainsley: i know. steve: meanwhile, let's move on and talk a little bit about the parlor game that is who will joe biden's vice president be? we are coming up on the convention and the conventional wisdom is that he would know and then they will announce his late as possible. peter doocy was on the trail chasing joe biden over the weekend. he was rehoboth he said. mr. vice president have you selected a running mate? and he said yes. which is the headline. and then peter asked and who is it? and he joked it's you. actually.
4:07 am
right now, we have got a list, ainsley, of the people -- peter is not on the list. we don't think. he has not been vetted by his mother nor me. but who is currently on the short list for possible biden picks? ainsley? ainsley: it's kamala harris, susan rice, karen bass, elizabeth warren, value demings, and gretchen whitmer. we are expecting him to announce this week considering the dnc starts next week. and whether or not that will hurt him, i don't know. it could do what happened with john mccain, remember when he announced sarah palin and everyone watched the convention and they loved her speech? this is what tiana lowe said. she is with the washington examiner and she wrote an article about this. listen. >> he really did box himself in by saying he would only choose a woman and now increasingly the pressure is on for him to choose a woman of color and
4:08 am
predominantly a black woman. unfortunately live given the political reality there are no black governors in the country and only one black senator kamala harris. this really narrows down his options and means it has sort of turned into this intersectional catfight of susan rice and kamala harris and karen bass dumping off on each other leaving him with few options. brian: that's true. why would you box yourself. in showing bad leadership. one of the things that hurt joe biden more than anythin --john h palin and he didn't know her well. blew up his candidacy. why wouldn't he do everything he can to get the widest swath possible. i was only picked because the vice president picked himself in to picking a running mate. look who is left. elizabeth warren, no way because if she is named, then, guess what? the republican governor puts another republican in the senate seat for the remainder of her term. that's not going to happen.
4:09 am
value demings at a time which the democratic party is against the cops doing the most they can defund and emasculate them. not going to pick an excop or sheriff. gretchen whitmer has been controversial governor of michigan her crack down was popular until they realized the coronavirus was coming back just as strong. doesn't make any sense. karen bass th oppo search for democrats horrendous. hard to imagine him getting a strong case for her. susan rice, we are going to talk to michael waltz shortly what she did with benghazi recommending libya and then saying that bergdahl served with honor and distinction. and kamala harris mayor of san francisco and mentor rejected turned down. wait, hold out for your attorney general. so best of luck, joe. steve: yeah, and you know, historically, and you know sarah palin was mentioned when she was
4:10 am
unveiled, we figured out during the program who it was. because we were tracking the tail number on a jet that was traveling from alaska to where joran mccain was that day so we figured out that it was going to be her. but this, during coronavirus is all different because we do not expect when joe biden announces the person that that person will actually be at his side because of coronavirus everything is virtual just like this telecast. all right. meanwhile, 7:10 here in the east. democrat backlash growing this morning after president trump signed an executive order on covid-19 relief. ainsley? ainsley: the president taking action following weeks of failed negotiations on capitol hill. brian: yes. saturday was kind of electric. gillian turner is live at the white house with a war of woshedz words over the it the's orders. >> good morning brian, ainsley and steve. before the inches was dry on those executive orders that

4:20 am
executive order on friday. how funny is this? this is hilarious. media reporter for the hill joe concha. joe, i remember when barack obama was president and he was talking about how he couldn't get congress to help him he said, look, i got a pen and i got a phone. and that's how we wound up with the dreamers president obama signed 276 executive orders. president bush george w. bush signed 291. donald trump has signed 180. these are things presidents do particularly in a time when things are polarized and congress isn't doing at least what the president deems is the right thing at that time. so to have a reporter at one of the top newspapers in the world either have, i don't know, willingly deceitful type of tweet that she put out there or he. or have patent poor memory loss

like this only something brought on by tds which is trump derangemenderangesyndrome if yor psychiatrist. steve: indeed. another media outlet the "new york times" had this big exclusive that apparently donald trump who this that event out in south dakota under mount rushmore, he actually wanted to figure out whether or not they could put his face up on the mountain. here's the quote from the "times" and last year a white house aide reached out to the governor's office with a question according to a republican official familiar with the conversation, what's the process to add additional presidents to mount rushmore? the president then tweeted, joe, never suggested it, although based on the many things accomplished during the first three and a half years, perhaps more than any other presidency, sounds like a good idea to me. you got to wonder where that story came from via at "new york times." i mean, where does that stuff
4:22 am
happen? >> right. well, it's through anonymous sources, right? and that's something the anonymous source neems to know everything. love to meet this guy or gal. feed negative things about the president to the press. the president also, he may have said. this right? and it may have been joking. he does have the sense of humor. he does love to troll the press. we have seen that people put out on twitter shows him being president not just in 2020, 2024 or 2052. he has actually tweeted this out. it's all trolling no. way a first term president would ever suggest he should be put on mount rushmore in any serious capacity. couple polls that came out that relate to both these stories came out from gallup and the knight foundation nonpartisan. 54% of americans, okay, majority, believe that reporters misrepresent the facts. gallup also finds in the same poll 84% of americans say media
4:23 am
is to blame for the u.s. political divide, 86% believe there is bias in the media. so, when you hear about oh, there is no bias against this president. it's just reporters pursuing facts, these polls are disturbing to have those sort of numbers that high. er with, at one point, let me just read this to you real quick. most americans have lost confidence in the media to deliver news. chief program officer. this is corrosive for our democracy he is he says. that's all you have to say about this. this is dangerous times in terms of people just not knowing where to get the truth anymore, steve. steve: and that is so accurate on its nose right there, joe. because when i went to journalism school reporters just gave facts, things that they knew for sure. but today it's hard to tell which -- in somebody's report which part is the fact and which part is the reporter's opinion?

4:31 am
it has commandments. it has trials by fire. it has burning at the stake. what it doesn't have is forgiveness or grace. any kind of human emotion that would understand that people can make mistakes or say things you disagree with and that doesn't mean that you need to hate and destroy them. you mentioned the fact that this was written in a seattle paper by a university of washington professor. i just interviewed on the federalist radio hour our radio show katie her zog who is a writer in seattle who herself was canceled after a focus basically she wrote a feature piece that paid attention to people who had transitioned and then regretted it. for that her name was smeared all over the place. there was graffiti and signs put up in seattle calling her all manner of terrible things just for reporting something a trend that was happening in the country. and what we are seeing right now is cancel culture drifting out of the media environment and into the realm where normal
4:32 am
people are being affected by it. small business owners and the like. people who don't putt up the right sticker or express the right emotion are canceled in the sense of the group of people banding together and deciding together online that they are going to destroy someone who they don't like. ainsley: what do you expect out of this election? a lot of people are even afraid that they will be canceled if they admit that they're voting for one candidate over another depending on who they are around at the party or on the street or working out at the gym with, i guess can't do that anymore. >> emily at the cato institute has done significant research on this. u gov polling shows the fact is there is a vast majority of people who are worried about expressing their beliefs, particularly people who are conservative or republican because they fear for their careers, they fear for what would happen if they said who they were voting for or who they were support it's. i expect that trend to only continue and grow. i think we are in a period of
4:33 am

house. brian: other big thing is how people are going to be voting and the president pushing back everywhere he again against mail-in voting. do you think we should make dissemination there is a difference between requesting to vote through the mail as opposed to the blanketing an entire state with ballots they didn't request with addresses that can't be verified. do you make that same distinction andy accurately portray your school of thought there? >> >> absolutely. and the president has expressed that as well there have been vetted systems with absentee voting. part of the verification is actually requesting the ballot so that you know it is going to the person it sin tended to go to instead of this mass mailing sending ballots out to addresses that haven't been verified to voters who haven't been verified. the way i view it is it's like having a wedding for 100 guests and having 100,000 people show up. the systems are not prepared for this deluge of mail-in ballots.
4:42 am
they don't have the counting machines and personnel. that's why it took six weeks to get results in new york. could you imagine we have an election day and it takes two to three months to get the results what that would do to this country as when we are as divided as we are. >> we have a dry run. it was one state. it was florida. and we couldn't handle one state. can you imagine if it was 12 or 13? >> this is all coming from the democrats. the president is saying keep the systems in place that have worked. we need to have surety in our elections. democrats are saying mass mail ballots. let's not verify the voters. get rid of voter identification. get rid of signature verification. let's have ballot harvesting which has nothing to do with coronavirus. this is a huge problem. and democrats are purposefully trying to create chaos in our election process heading into november. all right. she is the rnc chairwoman and she joins us live from our location that features the white house, so maybe that's a hint that the president will do his speech from the white house.
4:43 am
stay tuned for that. ronna, thank you very much. >> thanks for having me. steve: you bet. all right. it is let's see. 18 minutes before the top of the hour. jillian joins us with the news. jillian: good morning, and we begin with this. today marks one year since jeffrey epstein was found dead in his new york jail cell while awaiting trial ton sex trafficking charges. it was ruled a homicide. forensic pathologist dr. michael biden was hired by epstein's family to investigate. he joined us earlier and says many questions remain unanswered. >> we still don't know a year later what the position of jeffrey epstein's body was. we don't know yet what the dna was on that news. we don't know if the door was of his cell was locked or unlocked. jillian: epstein's associate ghislaine maxwell was arrested earlier this year and pleaded not guilty to sex trafficking

4:46 am
back out to you. steve: it is, indeed. adam, thank you very much. speak sea to shining sea. the new season of american built is premiering on fox nation. it's a series that looks at amazing architecture and things that have never been built before. like how exactly did they build the gateway arch in st. louis where they started in two different places and they hoped they wound up together up at the top or the chrysler building or george washington bridge or lincoln tunnel or what had been known as the harris county dome stadium which eventually became known as the astrodome. >> with a 35-million-dollar price tag, the dome had to host more than just basic games. baseball games it. need to be hospitable to football and other sports in the future as well. the solution two moveable field stand sections revolved to change the diamond into a
4:47 am
rectangle. >> the old conversion is what made it possible to have a baseball game in the afternoon and then have a football game there at night with a few hours in between. >> and so the dome became home of two football teams the nfl's houston oilers and the university of houston. steve: that's right. as i said a moment ago ainsley and brian, initially when they started building it they called it the harris county dome stadium. but then they decided to rename the professional team the colt 45. they renamed them the astros. and so they divided to call it the astrodome. and, also, brian, you will love this bit of trivia, you may already know this. it is the first venue in the world that had arrested official turf. so they installed it inside. and what do they call that fake grass in there? at the home of the astros? ainsley: astro turf.

many of us have been to the magnificent mile. beautiful area. all right, thanks so much. so bill barr, our attorney general, was on with mark levin yesterday, and mark asked him a myriad of questions including questions about the riots, questions about why this is happening in our country, and bill barr said, you know, that they were not expecting trump to win the election and it outrages them. listen to the rest of it. >> they were trying to impeach if day one. they've shredded the norms of our system. and i think it's because of the desire for power. in the old days, you could have friends across the aisle, you know? politics was part of your life, but it wasn't all-consuming. i think what's happened is that the left wing has really withdrawn and pulled away from the umbrella of classical liberal values that have undergirded our society since our founding. i think the left really
5:04 am
represents a revolutionary party that believes in towering down the system -- tower thing down the system. and they're interested in complete political victory. they're not interested in compromise. ainsley: he said they're essentially the bolsheviks, and there's a political, radical view of becoming a communist party. he also compared -- he talked about the urban guerrilla warfare, this is a new form of that, because the left has a lust for power, he says. being like a fish swimming in the ocean the way a gorilla moves through the people, hides out among the fish in the ocean, shrouds themselves in first amendment activity, and then they hijack the demonstrations and provoke violation. brian: they did, because the african-americans who wanted justice e in society to reevaluate our systems and see how we can make it better like we've done all through america, we started out with slavery, fought to get rid of it, in the

'60s, the civil rights revolution, you could sit down and talk to malcolm x and james baldwin and martin luther king jr., you debated, things were healthy. what you have right now is them painting fists, socialist fists, the symbol of socialism and communism on the street. you're taking down statues, ripping down our past, demanding that people -- not so much confederate statues, they're making people like tammy duckworth say, wait a second, i want to have a discussion on george washington statues in america x. that's why he says it's urban guerrilla warfare because they're not trying to make better, they're trying to destroy what america is. and by democrats not saying anything, they might as well be agreeing with all of it, because you cannot get them to comment on the unrest in portland, in seattle, in chicago, in new york, in albuquerque, steve.
5:06 am
steve: well, you know, one of the other things that bill barr is in charge of is the fbi. and we do know that he has appointed john durham to look into the origins of cross item fire hurricane, and we're hoping that that department of justice report by him is done, you know, it would be great if it were coming out by the end of the summer as we have heard. however, sounds like the senate wants some information, they want to make it public pretty quickly. we just got a news flash, senate homeland security chairman ron johnson has issued his first subpoena as part of the committee's review into the origins of the russia probe. he issued it to fbi director, christopher wray. the subpoena does not compel wray's testimony, but instead demands all the records related to crossfire hurricane, and according to the subpoena, mr. wray must produce all the documents by august 20th at 5 p.m. so buckle in, it's going to be the a bumpy ride, a become by
5:07 am
end -- bumpy end to the summer. meanwhile, we do expect perhaps this week joe biden will be announcing his pick for vice president. we haven't seen him out much, he's been hiding in his basement. this is, essentially, the same strategy that they had with hillary clinton four years ago, keep her away from the press as much as you can and with the pandemic, it's been very effective. jill biden, joe's wife, dr. jill biden, was on with rita braver yesterday, and she did an in-person interview with rita at it looks like one of their homes and talked a little bit about what joe is looking for in a vice presidential pick. >> do you see yourself as someone who will be an adviser to the president? >> it's a marriage, and you listen to one another, you talk things out with one another. >> have you weighed in on who you think would be a good vice president for him and and who might -- >> you know, we've talked about
5:08 am
the different women candidates, but it's got to be joe's decision, who he feels most comfortable with, who shares his values. and that's what he's always said, that he and barack had that. ainsley: what's interesting is rita braver also interviewed joe bodienen, as you can see there -- joe biden. he's down in the basement, he's at home, yet his wife is out in public doing these interviews. what's the reason for that? many people have different philosophies or different ideas about what might be happening. i do know it's been heard over and over how much people do like dr. jill biden, and it's smart for her to get in front of the camera. she talked about the loss of her son, how they handled the hunter biden controversy, and she said, hey, we got through the death of a child, we can get through anything together as a couple. but, brian, you pointed out some
5:09 am
good points at the beginning of the show, you said he should be fair game because he was given this position through his father's connection. brian: yeah. he got his private business launched, and ivanka trump, no one's back off her. she's an adult working for the trump administration. as they debate this vice presidential nominee, among the critic es about the way they're doing it is david axlerod. since you named the finalists, everybody wants the job, so all the dems are dumping opposition research on other democrats. ronna mcdaniel was saying things like, thanks. will be. listen. >> already know what's going to happen, they're going to hide biden as much as possible and highlight the policies that the democrat party has embraced; the green new deal, raising taxes on 82% of americans, open borders, defund the police, let's embrace china and cuba. the things the democrats are proposing will bankrupt this
5:10 am
country and take us in a radical direction. brian: and you have susan rice, a lot of people think she's not worthy. elizabeth warren, if she leaves, a republican governor will put a republican there, they're not going to want that. will factfect, perhaps -- will affect, perhaps, the balance of the senate. democrats don't like cops, val demings is a former cop. karen bass and that link to cuba is going to be a problem. kamala harris has a mentor tell her don't take the job -- ainsley: gretchen whitmer, her husband allegedly tried to put a vote -- brian: yeah, and the infections are back in michigan. steve: and one other thing ronna said to us when asked about the differences between the dnc and rnc, she did say something donald trump was going to do, the first night, monday night,
5:11 am
that is when he's going to give his big speech. is so stay tuned. 8:10 here in the new york city area. anti-government protests turning deadly in beirut. demonstrators now clashing with police. one officer killed. the violence coming less than a week after that massive explosion that rocked the city. ainsley: trey yingst joins us live from beirut as france's president calling on world leaders to help that city that's in crisis is. hey, or trey. >> reporter: brian, ainsley, steve, good morning. there is immense pressure on the lebanese government following that blast last tuesday that killed more than 200 people. in the past 24 hours alone, we've seen three munster resign, and there are the -- ministers resign, and there are local reports indicating the prime minister is considering stepping down. over the weekend there were violent clashes erupt aring across the city. one officer was killed, dozens of protesters injured. take a look at the scene just last night. clashes are erupting again in beirut as these demonstrators
5:12 am
are calling for top local government officials to resign. they say they want answers for that explosion last tuesday that left more than 150 people dead. these clashes are unraveling very quickly. demonstrators are throwing stones and fireworks at security forces. one of the demonstrators has been injured. yesterday we saw 250 people injured, many of them by live ammunition. we had to get up against a wall here. if thaw start using live ammunition, i don't want us standing here. just a few hundred feet away, there were search and rescue teams who do continue searching through the rubble for survivors from the explosion. there are more than 100 people still missing. we do know that yesterday there was an international donor call that took place with president trump, french president emmanuel macron and a number of other
5:13 am
world leader. president trump reportedly stressed the need for an independent and transparent investigation into the cause of the blast. there are many ngos and international bodies concerned that handing money directly to the lebanese government would be liking having the fox guarding the henhouse. brian, ainsley, steve? brian: trey, thanks so much. the big challenge is it's a coalition government, so if you're mad at the government, you're mad at a a faction of everybody represented in lebanon. so it's going to be complicated, and the guys with the big guns are hezbollah, and they play a role. meanwhile, coming up joe biden set to announce his running mate any day now, and susan rice is still high on that list. but congressman michael walz says, quote: choosing her would be dangerous for america, and it's personal. he tells us why next. not even our competitor's best battery

5:19 am
front lines of susan rice's poor judgment, bad policy. she would be bad for our military and dangerous for this country. i had to lead the search for bowe bergdahl where men died looking for him. he abandoned his unit. and then to see susan rice declaring him a hero who served with honor and distinction after all of that was just a slap in the face for me, and it was a slap in the face for everyone who was out there looking for him. but bigger picture, you know, she had, she had a broader issue of tying our hands with restrictive r.o.e., of refusing to call a terrorist a terrorist, calling them an extremist instead, and year after year of cutting the military's budget. she would move our foreign policy backwards, not forwards. brian: and where do you stand on the iranian deal? she's one to have architects of

matter how good we are about testing right now. so that's what we're worried about right now, is sending these kids to schools and sending them home. it's not the kids so much we're concerned about, obviously, we are, but it's the grandparents, the parents, then the parents go to work, who they're spreading this to. ainsley: we're just going to have to be extremely careful because most americans want the kids back in school, but we want to do it safely. it is true though when the kids get it, they don't have the -- you said, it's just minimal side effects, right? if they even see those at all? >> well, the vast majority of them. so the likelihood of death and the likelihood of critical illness is lower, but it's possible. i mean, a 7-year-old just died in georgia with no medical problems. we hear about this and we see it all the time. kids get sick, they get multisystem inflammatory system, they can get ill from this, the likely hood is just lower -- likelihood is just lower. they're not immune to it. but the risk is obviously lower
5:30 am
than a parent or grandparent whose risk is exponentially greater. ainsley: we interviewed the president last week and hear about the vaccine, he says he thinks -- i'm paraphrasing him, but something to the effect he thinks it might be sooner than the end of the year. what are your friends in the medical world saying about the vaccine? >> well, you know, we know it's coming out. i think our biggest concern is are people actually going to get the vaccine. we've had a lot of resistance towards vaccinations historically over the last five years in america, and right now there's just a lot of, there's been a lot of pushback with public health initiatives right now, so we're concerned if we rush this to get it out there, are we actually going to get enough people vaccinated to have it work which it can do tremendous things. but right now i think the push should be on the vaccine, of course, but on prevention. we have the pcr test, we have the antibody test, but we need better rapid, at-home testing available where someone can just
5:31 am
take it like a pregnancy test. and we have the technology for it, we just need to push for it and lower our restrictions on different testing methods and not set the bar so high so that we can really control this. our best armor for this is prevention right now. ainsley: right, right. we're all trying to do our part. dr. kathuria, thank you so much. it's 8:31 here on the east coast. democrats pledging a new fight for president trump, calling his executive orders up constitutional. white house press secretary kayleigh mcenany is here to respond to that live next. ♪ ♪ z and mike. an army family who is always at the ready. so when they got a little surprise... two!? ...they didn't panic. they got a bigger car for their soon-to-be-bigger family. after shopping around for insurance, they called usaa - who helped find the right coverage for them and even some much-needed savings.

steve: democrat backlash growing this morning after president trump signed that executive order on covid-19 last week. ainsley: the president taking action following weeks of failed negotiations on the hill. brian: all right. gillian turner's live at the white house with the or -- the war of words over the president's orders. >> reporter: the ink was not even yet dry on president trump's coronavirus relief executive order, and his critics pounced over the weekend. democratic lawmakers said it's just another example of the president trying to make an end run around the congress. take a listen. >> what the president did is, i agree with the republican senator, it was unconstitutional slop. he what he's doing is undermining social security and medicare. so these are illusions. >> reporter: senate minority leader chuck schumer, his and his team called the executive orders a gimmick. take a listen. >> one of the problems with
5:37 am
those executive orders, they do much less than meets the eye. but the bigger problem is what they leave out. >> reporter: now, president trump is not back down, he says certain elements of his plan like the payroll tax cut, for example, make so much sense to the american people that they might stick over the long term. >> it's going to -- we'll take it out until the end of the year x then i'm going to make an extension as to, number one, or -- a decision as to, number one, an extension. >> reporter: chris wallace asked treasury secretary steve mnuchin yesterday if he would consider a proposal from democrats, he said, absolutely, anytime. maybe a deal is forthcoming this week. brian, ainsley, steve? steve: gillian turner live just south of the white house, thank you very much.
5:38 am
meanwhile, let's bring in caylee kayleigh mcenany, white house press sec taxer she's on the north lawn. good morning to you. >> good to join you, steve. steve: okay. so when the president signed that executive order, does he really intend to implement those things, or is this just another one of those negotiation tactics that donald trump is famous for? >> oh, he most certainly intends to implement the four executive orders pertaining to unemployment insurance, student loans, the payroll tax holiday and evictions. the american people need relief and, you know, chuck schumer, it's funny listening to him there talk about these executive orders as not being enough, well, what have democrats put forward? precisely nothing except rejecting at least on two occasions a $600 kleenex e tension of unemployment -- clean extension of unemployment insurance. president trump has acted in the american people's best interests. ainsley: there was violence and looting in chicago, we're seeing that actually on the magnificent mile, riots in portland, what's
5:39 am
the president going to do about that today? >> yeah, so the president has put in place operation legend which has so far succeeded in arresting 250 individuals and charging 250 individuals across the country per talk abouting to -- pertaining to civil unrest. but what has been so interesting to see in portland is finally, it took 70 nights, but finally you have the liberal portland mayor wheeler say saying that if you lock police officers in a building, intend to trap them in there, use an accelerant to commit arson, you are committing attempted murder. it took a full 70 days for the liberal mayor to acknowledge that's an unacceptable status quo and these aren't just peaceful demonstrations as he tried to show when he walked among these rioters. brian: so one of the big stories around the world remains covid-19 and the surge back in melbourne, it's coming back in germany and spain, coming back a little bit in south korea and
5:40 am
japan. but not like it is here. and it goes back to testing. now, when you see the cdc evidently is coming up with a saliva test, what can you tell us about that? and do you agree with some who say if these labs can't get a test back to an american citizen in less than three days, they shouldn't get paid for it because they're useless? >> i'll leave it to the president about that specific of provision, but what i would say is this: dr. birx and our team here have been hard at work to do pool testing, to reduce the testing turn-around time, and we have seen some success there. we in the united states have been number one in testing in the entire world by a long shot, more than 65 million tests comparing that number to india to around 18 million. we've done extraordinary work, and when you talk about new tests, brian,ing like a saliva test, we have more than a hundred emergency use authors exploring even more testing capability above the abbott test and the rapid turn-around test
5:41 am
and the other tests that are currently available on the commercial market. steve: you know, kayleigh, something i was reading yesterday trying to catch up after a week away with, i'm shocked at the number of people who are getting into fights over masks. i mean, there was some guy who punched, i think, a 75-year-old guy, partially disabled vet, in the jaw and broke his jaw because the guy said, hey, you know, your girlfriend isn't wearing a mask. where does the president stand on encouraging people -- don't get into a fight about it. either they're going to wear a mask or they're not. >> yeah, no one should be fight over this. what we should be doing is doing what is patriotic which is when you can't socially distance, wear a mask. i was with the president last week when he wore a mask when he couldn't socially distance. he's done it several times. that's where he stands, it's the right thing to do. if you're standing close to someone and no one should be
5:42 am
fighting over it, nevertheless. ainsley: what's the deal on the rapid test because i know some friends who stood in line for a long time, they had to travel to get in line to get these tests, i know some other people -- there are only, like, three clinicses on long island who are doing this. people want the rapid test to know if they need to go back to work or if they need to quarantine. what's the latest on getting more rapid tests out there so people don't have to wait in long lines? >> yes, it's important. the end rapid tests are available throughout the nation, but we have prioritized making sure they get to places where we have vulnerable communities like our nursing homes where we've pushed a lot of the testing to protect america's seniors. but there is even in our testing system as it currently stands excess testing capacity because some of the tests that do take a few days are not fully being utilized. there's excess capacity in the system is, but you're right that surginged rapid test where we can is important, specifically in our nursing homes.
5:43 am
brian: so china has sanctioned, in the response to our sanctioning some of our lawmakers, they've sanctioned 11 of ours including marco rubio, ted cruz, tom cotton, pat toomey and we have also another congressman from south jersey of no trump officials. what's your reaction to china's reaction to our sanctioning of them? >> yeah. china stands on notice because this president has been unmistakeable in standing up to china. you've seen him with the phase two china deal, pushing that deal through like no other president could or has in history. he's taken action, sanctioning against the abusive treatment of the uighurs, no longer recognizing hong kong's autonomous status because of chinese intervention. so this president stood up mistakeable. china may try to get him back as noted, but this president has stood firm against china, and he'll continue to. steve: all right. kayleast, thank you very much for joining used today. >> thank you, guys. steve steve you bet.
