while wearing those mittens will the sound be sustained? todd: no one will ever know. has there ever been a week was more appropriate? jillian: has there ever been a week we talked about this much? on that note good morning, you are watching "fox and friends first". todd: we start with the fox news alert, thousands of national guard troops banished to parking garages after protecting the capital on inauguration day. >> griff jenkins live in washington with the question everyone is wondering. how does this happen? >> reporter: capital police have to answer that question because when guardsmen told politico we feel betrayed by what happened, thousands of national guard troops in the capitol grounds by the us capitol police, one group said they had been resting in the senate office building only to be forced to relocate to a
2:02 am
nearby parking garage. the temperatures in the low 40s, very uncomfortable, the same guardsmen told politico yesterday dozens of senators and congressmen lockdown our minds taking photos shaking her hand and thanking us for our service. within 24 hours they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of the parking garage. this is drawing bipartisan outrage. tammy duckworth, i can't believe great servicemembers we have been asking to protect our capital and our constitution these last two weeks would be unceremoniously ordered to vacate the building. we need answers, they can use my office. senator tim scott tweeting this is unconscionable and unsafe. whoever's decision this was to house our national guard men and women in underground parking lots must be held accountable. the problem has been fixed, troops have been let back in but the point about accountability
2:03 am
is interesting because the capital rights on january 6th the capital police facing new acting chief, the permit's first woman, an african-american amid an ongoing crisis. we've not heard back yet this morning. they are issuing a statement on support but didn't account for why the troops were forced out. texas governor abbott says he is bringing his troops home. todd: i will take a step further. this is another example of our nation when troops come home from war, finish a job, throwing them to the side and it makes no sense. it is the exact counter to what you would think we would do when troops come home from a war, from battle, from serving our nation. we should be embracing them in every way possible for their service, for what they have done and yet this is what we do, this is a black mark on our nation. we need to improve is forever going forward.
2:04 am
>> you will continue to follow that as well we. in the meantime it was president biden's first full day on the job yesterday and there's a running list of things he did. >> he should another slew of executive orders, they range from establishing a pandemic testing board to worker health safety to promoting safe travel standards and reopening schools. president biden got a little testy about whether his ambitious goal of 100 million doses is sufficient. >> thank you, guys. >> where the us is right now. >> we announced it and you said it is not possible, give me a break, man. >> reporter: our first of his presidency. it is becoming clear the flurry of executive orders is the
2:05 am
president's first 40 hours may not be unifying congress, minority leader mitch mcconnell had this to say. >> on the biden administration's first day it took several big steps in the wrong direction. the president reentered the failed paris climate agreement, the president unilaterally canceled the keystone xl pipeline. >> we will see a for executive orders come today, and we will learn about impeachment trial which raise tensions across party lines. todd: forgot about the impeachment trial. jillian: portland writers facing charges following the unrest inauguration day. >> reporter: portland police arresting 7 more people for the inauguration day rights bringing the number arrested to 15, charges range from assaulting an

officer, and rioting, antifa protesters targeting the democratic party headquarters and ice building, overnight, marching the ground outside a nice facility despite president biden's calls for unity. >> let's start afresh, all of us. let's begin to listen to one another again. here one another. see one another. show respect to one another. politics doesn't have to be a raging fire destroying everything in its path. >> moments after president biden was sworn into office was redirected to the white house website, senior writer julio was in portland during the right and explained what is motivating the angry mob. >> they want total abolition, don't want any president, they hate biden, they made it clear yesterday, they hate the united states and everything it stands for.
2:07 am
jillian: democrats condemned the violence of the capital they are being asked to address this as well. chuck grassley tweeting i'm waiting for president biden to condemn the violence, looting, arson, the last two days in oregon, washington state. >> if you want to root out the mystic terrorism you go after antifa instead of pretending it is a mythical group created by the right or simply an idea his ideas are so damaging that building end of collapsing once they order them. absolutely ludicrous. >> reporter: trump and the media declines to an all-time low. according to reports shared by ask he is 57% of democrats and 18% of republicans trust traditional media sources. todd: dana lash is condemning political violence, she can't understand why democrats won't do the same. >> when joe biden was giving his
2:08 am
inaugural address and got to the part where he was talking about white supremacy i was wondering if that was his way of referencing antifa considering the makeup of that violent group and not a lot of reporting as to what they did in portland and i hadn't heard him say anything about going after a state headquarters, this wasn't some street team field office. this is the organ democratic party they went after. i thought we would all be on the same page of condemning violence but they have such a hard time doing it i cannot figure out why. todd: dana reminded everyone about the times. jillian: these images, a massive fire erupting on rhode island
2:09 am
overnight, 5 miles away in bristol. the word what started the fire if anyone is hurt. todd: the defense sector, homicide off a waiver for retired army general lloyd austin to take their role. legislation heads to biden's desk for approval. confirmed boston would be the first black secretary of defense. president biden plans to keep christopher ray as that agency's director. make sure to get your lottery tickets today, the drawing for mega millions $970 million jackpot, the ninth third-largest a lot of history. jillian: the cash option comes out with $716 million, the longest stretch without a mega millions jackpot winner. it might end because todd will have a winning ticket for all of us. >> i thought it would happen the first two times. >> president biden scots water a challenges his vaccine plan.

2:14 am
dropped to record lows. they have a duty to ask tough questions. that she speech writer for george w. bush and fox news contributor phil mcgurn joins us, good to see you. it is our job, it is the job of journalists to ask tough questions, correct? >> >> it is but no one did it for the past year while he was running for president so that is going to be interesting to see. now that he is president you can't evade and we will find out if they insist on asking tough questions. he's not used to it because no one gave him hard questions for the campaign. the effort was to get trump and so many people like me in the press corps signed up for the resistance so it is a new experience for him.
2:15 am
that is just the press. remember when the worker asked him a question about hunter biden's financial dealings he snaps back, he's not patient with tough questions and hasn't had to answer them yet. we will find out if going forward he will have to answer them. todd: look at this chart. it is an extremely telling, 46% of people in our country trust traditional media. look at what it was in 2019, it was up around 57%, 58%. look at this breakdown. americans who trust traditional media broken down by party, 18% republican, 57% democrat. the media continues to flaunt if not double down on its double standard with treating parties different, why don't they care? >> the press? todd: i don't they care about
2:16 am
this double standard? >> the press has always been liberal and there's nothing wrong with that. you can have a review and rate fairly and objectively. to expect people not to have views is unrealistic but think of what we had with donald trump, the august before he was elected the new york times ran a front-page op-ed saying objectivity is out the window, we can't afford this luxury in the age of trump and everyone else signed on. it is contribute to the polarization of what people are willing to watch and many on the left complain where americans are getting their news, mainstream media promoted the russian collusion narrative that was false so it is understandable if you don't give people a fair shake they will go somewhere else.
2:17 am
jillian: it is split with democrats taking control of the 50/50 senate but vice president harris presiding for the first time, she will be the tiebreaker, what legislation could come up as potentially an issue when talking about immigration and covid-19 relief at the forefront? >> covid-19 relief will come up early because they want to get it up there. the president is committed to 100 million vaccines in the first hundred days. it will come up, state aid, bailing out states from the federal government but immigration is a big thing, i'm glad president biden is going to try to do this with legislation rather than a diesel the aca type order, legislation demands compromise especially when you have narrow majorities in the house and senate. we can see depending what the
2:18 am
bill is and whether president biden is willing to horse trade we can see tie-breaking vote on a lot of things. also when it is 50/50 every single member of the senate is the decisive vote. if you are in the pro side of getting something past, it is gone, look what john mccain did on the repeal of obamacare. if you are the anti-side, if one of your guys -- it is done. it makes for very interesting politics. todd: decisions on two more stars for the flag or more black robes on the supreme court, it will come down to cinema before they get to harris. appreciate your time as always. jillian: still had a new call to

2:23 am
program 74 million americans who voted for donald trump, something being echoed on at least one college campus. a smith college professor says the republican party does not have the right to exist at all. what message to central americans who don't agree with the left's values, isabel brown, this outlandish quote from this smith college professor on the republican party, loretta ross, it reads republicans are no longer entitled to exist as a legitimate political party. they are seditionist's, co-conspirators and neo-nazis hiding in plain sight. we must send an unmistakable signal that this will not be tolerated. how does any reasonable parent pay for their daughter to go to smith college when this type of dangerous language is being used? >> the reality is reasonable parents should not be okay with paying tuition for their child
2:24 am
at any college that use this hateful rhetoric. this hyperbole and extremely which from the left has only continued to escalate over time from calling conservatives deplorables in 2016 to domestic terrorists and neo-nazis that have no right to exists, in 2021. calling all conservatives not seize, a left-wing value embraced by the national socialist workers party to have government control all of society, fascism embraced by the -- in 2021. the left controlling massive corporations intent on silencing conservative voices. todd: people do not understand what the word nazi really means
2:25 am
and professor loretta knew this at some point in time, the same smith college professor said this, i'm challenging the call out culture. understand how calling out is really toxic and does alienate people and make them fearful of speaking out. why the change of heart? >> the narrative always changes when it comes to what is politically expedient. this is an new behavior especially on college campuses at turning point usa, conservative ideas are more under attack today on campus than ever before. todd: -- wants you to say. i don't know how to say these things. she, he, they, they want things
2:26 am
like her -- this is what their thesis is on that. feelings and identities will matter more than grammar rules. when colleges focus on this type of thing, will students graduate prepared for the world of work and the world in general? >> likely not though they made lots of new words and pronouns that are just made up every single day. as a biomedical scientist i have been scratching my head of the usual gender pronouns for many years but it is beyond the pale to me that all of a sudden saying nonscientific and critically incorrect terms to make people feel good on college campuses is paramount when it comes to the boundaries of campus. instead of focusing so much on the exact pronoun that needs to be used, preparing for better graduation rates or the job market to succeed afterlife after graduation.

america. we have seen the videos from convoys from honduras coming up, thousands of people charging the border, leaving a country that has covid-19, when they get to the united states border what is going to happen? will they wants to be vetted or given covid-19 test for vaccination? we have thousands of people in el paso in nursing homes that still haven't had their vaccination because of the shortage of it. when people get here and get across the border they won't stand wait for the trial date, they will take off across the united states and never be found again. the job market in el paso is terrible. stores closes down, farms close,

relationship to truth at times is a bit tenuous, just because he tweeted so much. they do not do that simply because it was involved against fact checking everything he says but they are not opposed to it. it is a question how many words does president biden say, is he on a shortly should? in the washington post, they will still fact check him regularly but there is a policy -- remains to be seen what is happening. todd: the slogan is democracy dies in darkness, we have light for one and darkness for another. we appreciate your time this morning. still ahead, congressman elect luke leffler's with a running for congress after his tragic death from kim jong un for.
