tv The Faulkner Focus FOX News August 6, 2021 8:00am-9:00am PDT
asked him what is yours. guess what it is? what is your summer song? >> bill: that wasn't how it was framed. you are looking for an all-time classic summer song and i said frank sinatra. i won two votes. >> dana: frank sinatra summer wind. >> bill: enjoy summer. >> the war of words goes on between president biden and florida governor ron desantis as americans grapple with reimposed covid mandates. this is "the faulkner focus". i'm julie banderas in for harris faulkner on this friday. it is getting personal now. the president earlier this week ripping the florida governor over covid cases rising in his state saying desantis should get out of the way and not block new restrictions. desantis firing back slamming biden for allowing covid
positive migrants into country and saying he will -- if biden infringes on the rights of floridians with more mandates. biden upping the ante with the feud. >> your words don't be in the way and he said i am in the way to block too much interfere interference the federal government. your response? >> president biden: governor who? >> critics saying biden's response. how about the most important and powerful governor in the entire country. that's who. another tweets governor who? you know, joe, governor, you were terrified of in 2024. senator john kennedy on the larger implications. >> we live in a system where the federal and state governments share power. on an issue like this, quite
frankly, i think the decision should be made state by state by the state legislature or in some cases the governor with authority from the state legislature. >> marc thiessen, fox news contributor and "washington post" columnist. you think biden should be terrified of desantis, is that why he is slapping back so early? >> first of all, i don't think he should be making memory jokes. some people might think he actually forgot desantis's name. that's probably not a wise course of action. and mark my words, there will be -- desantis will have governor who t-shirts on the website before the week is out. and if biden is not careful it must be president who in a few years. he better watch out. look, governor who is right. he should be standing in the way of the federal government because the reality is that covid cases are rising in florida but deaths and hospitalizations are not
keeping pace and according to jackson health only 6% of the cases of the deaths in admissions are vaccinated people. 94% are unvaccinated individuals. look, we should be encouraging people to get vaccinated. the tragedy is any deaths that come in unvaccinated people are tragic because they're preventable. the unvaccinated pose no risk to the vaccinated majority. cdc reports there are less out -- 191 million people who have gotten at least one shot and have vaccinated immunity and of those less than 1,000 who died from covid. if you have gotten the vaccine, you are more likely to get hit by lightning and die than you are to die of covid-19. it has turned for the vaccinated population this has turned what was a mortal threat into something no worse than the common cold. we shouldn't be shutting down schools or putting restrictions on the country because of the common cold. that is not what our fight was against. it was against mass deaths and
overwhelmed hospitals. that's not what is happening today. >> it's a little contradictory to hear from the white house that the vaccine works. 191 million in the country have gotten at least the first shot. that settles down to 0.03% of breakthrough cases as we call them. those who have gotten covid after getting the vaccination. they do not get as sick as you would if you didn't have the vaccine but regarding the masks, the mask mandate particularly for kids going back to school and ron desantis is saying that's a decision that falls in the hands of the parents, not the governor. now -- the government, rather. how will it fall out in september when kids go back to school? >> here is the other thing. the data shows unvaccinated children have a similar risk profile for vaccinated adults. again, cdc data, of the 620,000 americans who died during this
pandemic, according to the cdc335 of those were children who had a covid diagnosis in their records. the cdc has no idea whether they had a pre-existing condition and no idea whether they died of covid or covid was the cause or just incidental. in fact, marty makary, our friend on fox news professor at johns hopkins his research team did a study of 48,000 kids and found zero mortality rate among children who didn't have a pre-existing condition. your children are not at high risk, very low risk. the thing with the schools. vaccinated teachers are at zero risk from their unvaccinated kids. there is no excuse for making the kids wear masks in schools or not opening the schools. the delta variant will peak at the end of august, early september and mark my words teachers unions will start saying we have the delta variant is so dangerous we have
to vaccinate kids and we won't come back and put restrictions on the schools. >> we're learning that one of cuomo's accusers has filed a criminal complaint. the first criminal complaint against the governor with the albany county sheriff's office. the first to do so. the unidentified woman worked as an assistant for him. he is facing intense pressure in his own party to resign, watch. >> i was quite disgusted. >> that's what new yorkers expect from their leadership. >> i do believe elected officials are held to a higher standard and that we do need to be held accountable. >> if he does not resign the legislature beginning with the state assembly must move to impeach him. >> the next chapter will be the governor to resign or if not then i join my colleagues moving forward with introducing articles of impeachment.
>> cuomo's office said it will cooperate with the impeachment investigation. possible sign he has no plans to step down. the "new york post" with these pictures of the governor chilling by the pool at his mansion in albany with an aide on her laptop nearby. the paper keeping up its string of scathing headlines. today's reading hide and creep. i won't tell my kids about that. i do like the game hide and sick and it ruins it for me. the "new york post" basically has it on their website the victim is identified as executive assistant number one saying that governor andrew cuomo groped her in 2019. we knew of this accusation and we're now getting a criminal complaint filed. why did it take so long for these complaints to start trickling in? i would imagine this is just the first of many to follow. >> i agree with you. look, cuomo is not resigning. he is not going to resign until
he is shown there are are votes not just to impeach him but remove him from office. he has taken a page from the bill clinton playbook. bill clinton did similar things, impeached but not removed from office. the lesson that cuomo learned if you're shameless and unrepentant and refuse to resign you can survive. just last year the democratic party had bill clinton speak at their convention. so, you know, despite everything he did. so cuomo looks at that and says look, if bill clinton can survive the me too era so can i. he will not resign until it's clear and legislators come to him and say we have to votes to impeach you and remove you. you can either be removed from office or resign on your own. until that happens he won't resign. >> you have to look at the overall impact. ist is not just on his political career which is over after this. just a matter of time. let's be straight.
but even the former new york governor is coming out saying get on with it. watch what he had to say. >> the longer this drags out, the worse it is for new york. andrew cuomo cannot function as governor of new york today. he is just too preoccupied, criminal cases, civil cases, likely impeachment. he can't function as governor at a time when we have a covid resurgence, taurking about shutdowns, people going back to school. how do you get people to go back to offices in new york and he can't function as governor. >> if he can't function of governor what is he doing to our state? we're in the midst of a pandemic, we have the delta variant that we haven't heard the governor talk about because he is so concerned with all these accusations and defending himself of all these things he allegedly is innocent of. step down already. how selfish of a move is it not to for his own state of new york that he has served so proudly? >> well, it's because he is selfish.
anyone who behaves the way he has is absorbed with himself. no one who is unselfish would have done the things he did for women who worked for him and came because they believed in his ideas and his leadership and he abused that trust. he won't be unselfish. this is on the speaker of the assembly, the leader of the senate and both democrats in new york to go to andrew to make sure, poll their legislators. make sure they have the votes. go to the governor and say you have a choice. you can resign or be removed from office. until that happens, he is not going to -- look what happened with bill clinton. our country was paralyzed for months with the impeachment proceedings. he didn't care, either. these people care about survival. basically sex abusers and sex predators don't care about other people or they wouldn't be sex predators. so he has to be told he will be removed for himself to do the right thing. >> always great talking to you. have a wonderful weekend, thank you.
>> you too, take care. >> some of the democratic party's most powerful women are blaming kamala harris's low approval rating on sexism. the so-called crisis meeting to restore the v.p.'s image and republicans pouncing as squad member cori bush defends paying $70,000 for private security while at the same time pushing to defund the police. and it could be a huge gift to the gop in 2022. >> we have to do away with this notion that the democrats are not this radical party. they are a radical party. that was a very popular member of congress. refi newday two anr is the lowest rate in their history. two and a quarter percent. just 2.48 apr. newday's holding the line on rates so veterans can save thousands.
we did it again. verizon has been named america's most reliable network by rootmetrics. and our customers rated us #1 for network quality in america according to j.d. power. number one in reliability, 16 times in a row. most awarded for network quality, 27 times in a row. proving once again that nobody builds networks like verizon. that's why we're building 5g right, that's why there's only one best network. as someone who resembles someone else... i appreciate that liberty mutual knows everyone's unique. that's why they customize your car insurance, so you only pay for what you need. [ nautical horn blows ] i mean just because you look like someone else doesn't mean you eat off the floor, or yell at the vacuum, or need flea medication. oh, yeah. that's the spot. only pay for what you need. ♪ liberty, liberty, liberty, liberty ♪
i booked our hotel on kayak. it's flexible if we need to cancel. cancel. i haven't left the house in a year. nothing will stop me from vacation. no canceling. flexible cancellation. kayak. search one and done. veteran homeowners. if you haven't refinanced yet, flexible cancellation. get in on record low rates now. the newday two and a quarter refi is the lowest rate in newday's history. two and a quarter percent. just 2.48 apr. just one call, and you can save thousands every year. there's no money out of pocket and no up front fees. the newday two and a quarter refi. at these rates, you may never need to refinance again.
>> i'm going to make sure i have security because i know i have had attempts on my life and i have too much work to do. too many people need help right now for me to allow that. so suck it up and defunding the police has to happen. we need to defund the police and put that money into social safety nets because we're trying to save lives. >> julie: far left squad member cori bush defending her call to defund the police while at the very same time paying some $70,000 for her own private security detail. the irony not lost on critics like trey gowdy. >> she said she is the victim of a crime and then in the next sentence she wants to defund the group to investigate whether or not she is the victim of a crime. who does she thinks investigates threats against public officials? it is not psychologists. then see says i'll be safe and i want my body safe on this planet.
good luck to you on neptune. it is illogical but transparent. >> julie: chad pergram is live on capitol hill. >> democrats find themselves in a pickle with defunding the police. cori bush calling to slash the budgets of law enforcement. it puts the white house on the defensive. >> there may be some in the democratic party, including congresswoman bush who disagree with him. that's okay. i would say the majority of democrats, we've seen this in polling and the majority of members also agree that we should not defund the police. >> since the white house had to reiterate that president biden opposes defunding the police, the gop says democrats aren't consistent. >> we saw jen psaki and joe biden say they aren't the party of defund the police and make sure voters understand that's not true. they have prominent members of their caucus every week coming out and saying i want to defund
the police. we need to defund the police. >> the fracture in the party is in trouble for democrats. democrats way down ahead of the mid-terms. >> nothing is as important as the candidate herself or himself, of himself putting their own authenticity out there. i'm very confident that we will win the house. >> moderate democrats from battleground districts implored their side to drop the defund the police rhetoric. julie. >> julie: thank you very much. republicans wasting no time, meantime. weaponizing congresswoman bush's comments. take a look. >> murders and other violent crimes rose sharply in cities across the country. >> i make sure i have security. if i end up spending $200,000 or 10 more dollars on it you know what i get to be here to do the work.
>> julie: cnn running the headline cori bush handed republicans a 2022 gift. power panel mercedes schlapp, senior fellow at the american conservative foundation. richard fowler fox news contributor join me now. mercedes i'll start with you. joe biden has come forward and said they are not for defund the police and then they have the now the loudest mouth for the democratic party saying quite the contrary. is this a gift for republicans in 2022? >> absolutely. here is the deal. when you have this sort of division in the democrat party where the biden administration is separating themselves from cori bush's remarks, it is very telling. it just shows that they are quite frankly in a pickle because how are they going to be able to in any way defend what cori bush has said? her comments are a betrayal to
black americans. 81% of black americans believe we need to have the same or more police presence in their communities to keep communities safe. the mere fact that cori bush has made these comments i think are so selfish and so telling and very problematic for the democrats. we know that as we've seen in the polls, the defund the police message is not working for the democrats. the american people want and expect especially minority communities, they want and expect safe communities. >> julie: when you look at the rates of crime nationwide, richard, the crime rate is up. if you look in particular in minority communities, even more so. so then for cori bush to come out and preach defund the police as an african-american woman, what does it say to the african-american communities that desperately need police presence to protect them? >> number one actions speak louder than words. if you look the biden budget as well as the american rescue
plan you find money allotted to insuring that communities, whether communities of color, urban communities or rural communities have money for public safety. in the job numbers we saw today you saw local governments hire individuals. many of those individuals are police officers. >> julie: we'll have to take a break and come back to you guys in a moment. we'll go to the president joe biden speaking on jobs and the economy. let's listen. >> president biden: passing the bipartisan infrastructure bill. it is a bill that would end the years of gridlock in washington and create millions of good-paying jobs. put america on a new path to win the race for the economy in the 21st century. historic investment in roads and rail and transit and bridges and clean energy and clean water. will enable us not only to build back but to build back better than before the economic crisis hit. i want to thank the bipartisan
group of senators who working together and the committee chairs for arranging their ideas and concerns with me and vice president harris and members of our cabinet. as you deal with the trans continent tr railroad and interstate highway system we'll now propel us into the future. this bill makes key investments for people to work across the country in cities, towns and rural communities, small towns and big times, along the coastlines and in the plains. it covers the nation. it is put america to work in good-paying union jobs building and repairing our roads, bridges, ports, airports and, you know, once this bill passes the senate i know that body will move toward establishing a framework for the remainder of my build back better agenda. giving tax cuts to the middle class by investing in childcare and home care for seniors.
critical investments to combat climate change and build a clean energy future. vital steps needed to bring down the cost of healthcare and so much more. we are going to do it without raising taxes by even one cent on people making less than $400,000 a year. here is another important part of the bill. 90% of the jobs created by this legislation will not require a college degree. 90%. it is a blue collar blueprint to rebuild america which brings me to another piece of good news this morning. we learned that the economy created 943,000 new jobs in july. 943,000. the unemployment rate fell by half a percent to 5.4%. now, while our economy is far from complete and while we have
ups and downs along the way as we continue to battle the delta surge of covid, what is indisputable now is this, the biden plan is working. the biden plan produces result and the biden plan is moving the country forward. we are now the first administration in history to add jobs every single month in our first six months in office. the only one in history to add more than 4 million jobs during the first six months. economic growth is the fastest in 40 years. jobs are up. the unemployment rate is the lowest since the pandemic hit. black unemployment is down as well. why? because we put in place the necessary tools early in my presidency, the covid vaccine, the covid-19 vaccine plan. the american rescue plan to fight the virus and fight the economic mess we inherited. as a result he we've been able to make progress on both fronts
against grave challenges. we have -- we put in place the tools to prevent the delta variant wave of covid-19 from shutting down our small businesses, schools and society. you know, when we first got to office, covid-19 crisis were unrelenting and devastating for people. as a nation we didn't have the tools to deal with either. 4,000 americans were dying each and every day to the virus, 4,000 a day. economy had been wiped out. we were down 10 million jobs from what we were before the pandemic. we were in a dark winter. with real concerns about what spring would bring. but then we got to work. we passed the am an rescue plan shortly after i was sworn in to give us the tools to fight the pandemic and rebuild our economy and it produced results. to beat the pandemic we ramped
up testing and protective equipment and actually went out and bought enough vaccine so that every single solitary american could be vaccinated. and because of the help of everyone from the military to civilian efforts we carried out one of the most difficult logistical challenges in our nation's history to get 220 million shots into people's arms in the first 100 days in office. 220 million. over the past seven months we've cut covid-19 deaths by 90%. as of today, 193 million americans have gotten at least one vaccination shot including over 70% of adults over the age of 18. 165 million americans are now fully vaccinated because of our success with vaccination effort, this new delta variant
wave of covid-19 will be very different. be able to deal with than the one that we -- that was underway when i took office. and yes, cases are going to go up before they come back down. it is a pandemic of the unvaccinated. i've said that constantly and others have as well. the vaccination of the unvaccinated. you know, and it is needless -- taking a needless toll on our country. you know, we have roughly 350 million people vaccinated in the united states and billions around the world and virtually no one has died because of that vaccination. but even so, the impact will be very different than what happened last january. today about 400 people will die because of the delta variant in this country. a tragedy. all of these deaths were preventable if people had
gotten vaccinated. seven months ago today almost 4,000 people died on that very day from covid-19, 4,000 versus 400. that shows how much our vaccination progress has already done to protect us from the worst of the new delta covid-19 wave. likewise, the american rescue plan has given us the economic tools we need to protect our recovery against the worst impacts of the delta virus. 1400 $checks in the pockets of millions of americans helped to keep folks in their homes, helped to put food on the table. remember those long lines we used to talk about, people lining up in cars for hours just to get a box of food put in their trunk? help the small businesses keep the lights on, the doors open and employees on the job.
because states were losing revenue, they were having to lay off essential workers. well, the aid to states, cities, counties and tribes that kept the central workers going and on the job. funding for schools to reopen and ventilation systems and sanitation services and protective equipment to keep students and staff safe. as we vaccinated a america, we developed our economic tools to help our economy recover. as a result. , in the past three months we've created on average 832,000 per month since being sworn in compared to 50,000 jobs in the last three months of the previous administration. look, even so, my message today is not one of celebration. it is one to remind us we have a lot of hard work left to be
done both to beat the delta variant and to continue our advance of economic recovery. we all know what it starts with. as i said again and again this is a pandemic of the unvaccinated. so we have to get more people vaccinated. i said well over what's the number again, 350 million americans have already been vaccinated. they are doing fine. i'm pleased to report in the past week we've seen the first time vaccinations in america go up by 4 million people getting -- 4 million shots. it's more than we've seen in a long time. i want to thank the governors. i listened to the governor of maryland today on the television. he is doing a heck of a job, democratic governors as well. republican governors. getting the word out. look, as you all know i put in
place new incentives and requirements to encourage vaccinations. for example, federal workers will be asked to attest to their vaccination status. anyone who is not vaccinated will be required to wear a mask no matter where they work, test one or two times a week, socially distance, and generally will not be allowed to travel for work. there will be more to come in the days ahead. once again, i want to thank the local leaders and the private sector leaders who are imposing vaccine requirements. america can beat the delta variant just as we beat the original covid-19. we can do this. so wear a mask where recommended. get vaccinated today. all that will save lives and it means we aren't going to have the same kind of economic
damage you've seen when covid-19 began. we aren't stopping there. american rescue plan was built knowing the recovery would take time that there would be ups and downs. let me outline six specific actions people will see over the next few weeks to make sure that we fight the delta variant and wait for new vaccinations to be finished and keep our economy strong. first, thanks to the latest middle class tax cut in a long time, the next monthly check is the child tax credit. the next nine days checks will go out to almost 40 million families with children in nine days beginning next month -- beginning the middle of this month, i should say. august 15th, for example, a family with two young kids under the age of 7 will get a
check for $600 paid immediately and they will get the check for the next month for $600, etc. if are you a family with two kids between the ages of 7 and 17 you get 250 per child and that will continue month after month. second, i have looked ahead. we have looked ahead and now schools have the resources they need to safely reopen as the school year starts again so every child can be in school full-time safe and this year. third, we provided months ago states and localalitys with 45 billion to help renters and landlords to keep people in their homes. keep the local economy strong. that money has to get out now. i'm urging all local people to get that money out.
we are going to send more help to small businesses on main street so the delta variant doesn't cause them to lay off employees and shutter their doors. there is something called the paycheck protection program. a loan program forgiveable if a small business kept their employees on the job and doors open. we are now in the process to forgive those loans for small businesses who are doing the right thing, putting them in a better position to keep their businesses going. fifth, if anyone is worried about getting health insurance during the pandemic, there is help today. for those who get their health insurance through the affordable care act we're covering more people with more extensive benefits with premiums that average 40% lower. you don't have insurance, you can still sign up under the affordable care act through august 15th. just go to healthcare.gov today.
and six, we are going to lower the prices on everything from prescription drugs to hearing aids by allowing businesses to compete which will give them more choices at lower cost. for example, you are not going to have to go to a doctor to get a prescription to get a hearing aid. you can go right to the counter of the store and buy it over the counter. the bottom line is this, what we're doing is working. but don't take my word for it. forecasters on wall street project over the next 10 years our economy will expand by trillions of dollars and will create two million more jobs a year, good-paying jobs. we just have to keep going. and it is simple. that means get vaccinated, please. it is safe. it works. we'll save lives and maybe save your life. as i said before, this is the
pandemic of the unvaccinated, so please get vaccinated. we can get this done. we just have to stay the course. we just have to remember who we are. you have heard me say it before, we are the united states of america. there is not a single thing, nothing beyond our capacity when we do it together. god bless you all, may god protect our troops and have a good weekend, thank you. [shouting from reporters] >> julie: the president speaking live at the white house not taking any questions with a speech on the economy, on jobs, covid, back to school, and praising the administration for getting vaccines out there. he talked about 943,000 new jobs added to our economy. he also talked about how it is currently the lowest unemployment rate since the pandemic hit. hitting on the fact that black unemployment is down as well. he touched on how many americans have been vaccinated in this country and there were
a couple mistakes there. 165 million americans have at least received one jab. 193 million americans have received one jab and 164,000 -- 165 million have received both. he have did go into off script i believe a bit talking about how 350 million americans have been vaccinated. that was a little bit of a gaffe for the president but nonetheless trying to drive home the point that the vaccine works and he is hoping for kids to go back the school full-time come september. meantime the president of the nation's second largest teachers union again saying the organization wants schools open echoing yet again the president's remarks he just made but stopping short of fully committing to getting kids back into classrooms. watch. >> as i said to you in may, we want our schools to be not just open, but be welcoming and safe
environments for our kids, our families, obviously educators. when we said we were going to do everything we could to get schools open fully, that we were also going to put money behind that and we are running a campaign throughout the country, a full-court press to reopen schools. >> julie: this as a new study reports that remote schooling has had a devastating impact on many students in this country setting their learning back by months and leaving parents worried about their kids' mental health as well. the report warns the fallout from the pandemic threatens to depress this generation's prospect and constrict their opportunities far into adulthood. fox news medical contributor dr. nicole saphier joins us now. the president touched ton importance of getting kids back to school. there has been a back and forth between him and a couple of governors in florida and texas
about getting masks on kids going back to school. that will be the latest argument between the schools, the governor, and the government. should kids be masked when they go back to school in your opinion? >> julie, first of all nothing is black and white. i do -- we did correct president biden said 350 million americans had been vaccinated. 350 million doses have been administered. that's one of the strongest vaccination campaigns of our history. over 70% of americans have gotten at least one dose. we know immunity is rising. as it comes to children, it is incredibly frustrating and disheartening to see how they continue to be politicized throughout the course of this pandemic. and so when we look at them going back to school we talk about yes, they have to be in person and full-time. but it is not just that. we have data after data showing us the consequences of them
being taken out of school from the social isolation, physical, educational and mental health consequence thaes have come from all that. when we go back into the classroom, we also have to talk about what that looks like. if everyone is wearing a mask, especially the young children. they won't be able to have the facial recognition or not working on their speech development and there are some risks when it comes to dentition and their skin and so we need to take this with a grain of salt. we know the risk to younger children specifically is less than that to older children and adults, of course. we continue to see these fear mongering headlines that are keeping people in kind of an unrealistic state of panic. what we need from the cdc is the one thing they can't give to us. they aren't giving us real world data and realtime data what is going on with kids and delta. unfortunately we keep seeing headlines children are being
hospitalized. well, is that because more children are infected now or is delta affecting them more severely. it makes a different. >> julie: as far as delta is concerned there are statistic that would mack up that a bit, there are more children that are maybe getter sicker from delta than they would have from the original strain. >> well actually that's the piece that's missing. we see more children being hospitalized right now and more children being symptomatic. is it because they have higher viral load or higher prevalence in the virus in children? if you look at the cdc the rate of hospitalization of children with delta is 1%. the rate of hospitalization in children last summer 2020 based on the cdc was 2%. if you look at the data and looking at u.k. data. delta is not hospitalizeing more children. that's what we need clarity on right now and it is not coming. it is hard going back to school giving recommendations when
they can't give us the data. >> julie: good point. today new jersey governor murphy will announce his state will be joining others in mandating masks for students returning to school as education secretary cordona hit states like texas and florida that already have bans. watch. >> your message to governor desantis in florida and governor abbott of texas who banned mask mandates. >> don't be the reason why schools are interrupted. our kids have suffered enough. let's do what we know works. we shouldn't get -- politics doesn't have a role in this. educators know what to do. we did it last year. i have calls out to those states but at the end day i want to work with florida. >> julie: shouldn't it be the decision of a parent whether or not their child gets sent to school with masks? >> so i have two children in new jersey and i'm eagerly
awaiting governor murphy's speech. here is the thing. it is not red or blue state. community level of transmission. if you're in a state with low vaccination rates and high community transmission you consider certain metrics as having the kids be outside. increasing the ventilation, considering masking the adults and letting the children be children. if you are in a state like new jersey where we have a slight rise right now but it is nothing, nothing like we've seen bfp. our cases are very low and vaccine levels are very high. i don't think universal masking in young children is warranted in many states at this point. >> julie: a great point. mask the adults. let the children be children. thank you very much. we appreciate you coming on. have a great weekend. >> thank you. >> julie: president biden raising eyebrows with comments at a ceremony honoring capitol police present on january 6th. >> president biden: the same ones after a ballgame in the
visiting field come walking out of the gym and may get jumped by the other team or their supporters. >> julie: we know tyrus would never get jumped. he is up next. ♪ someone once told me, that i should get used to people staring. so i did. it's okay, you can stare. when you're a two-time gold medalist, it comes with the territory.

>> julie: president biden once again raising eyebrows, this time with some comments during a ceremony honoring the capitol police officers who responded to the january 6th riot. watch. >> president biden: are you the same ones after a ballgame in the visiting field come walking out of the gym as you want and may get jumped by the other team or their supporters. you may be all by yourself, the only one standing there when you watch six people jump one of our teammates. what the hell would you do? you would jump in. you would jump in knowing you will get the hell beat out of you, too. >> julie: twitter lighting up. one user with wound capitol police be the home team at the capitol? have friends next to you since you knew it would be a game with a lot of unruly visiting fans. another writing this poor old man has a hang-up on using
fists, what about all the cops who had to put up with blm protest? tyrus is a fox nation host. kamala harris kept a straight face. she probably thought where is he going with getting jumped. there was a field of police officers there, not just one getting jumped. what was that all about? >> you know, i try really hard -- first of all i would like to say the president's suit game today all right, way to take a risk, the tan with green tie, good for you, mr. president. having said that since we're doing improvements with our dress and stuff, i would strongly suggest getting a writer. there is no shame in that. some of the greatest speech makers in the history of the world had good writers. so maybe you need to find an
old writer from like the 80s would be good or, you know, poet or someone so when you try to use adjectives to create a feeling about an event you are talking about, let the professionals handle it. no more wing it, mr. president. it is just not in your game. i know reading the teleprompter gets boring but i think you need to ron burgundy this and read what's on the teleprompter. >> julie: today he was reading from the teleprompter. he went off topic. when he did he mistakenly said 350 million people in the country have been vaccinated. what he meant to say with 350 million doses had been administered. >> see? >> julie: that's what happens. these gaffes. >> i don't know if you are looking for a part-time job. throw your name in the hat and write a couple of tool things. >> julie: that would be great.
i would put a question mark at the beginning. >> we joke but at the same time you are the president of the united states, please, please be clear, sir. please. >> julie: i want to go on this topic about the rhode island branch of a major teachers union who is suing a mom of two. it is over her request for records from the school district on critical race theory. she reportedly did make a slough of requests, maybe more than 200. maybe a bit excessive but the union is saying in a statement quote we're asking the court to conduct a balancing test to determine whether our members' privacy rights outweigh the public interest. that mom, nicole, is reacting on twitter with a picture of the suit saying game on. and back in june she said this. >> really for for parents to start asking more questions. the more parents that ask more questions the harder it will be
for schools to retailiate against a lot of parents. >> julie: i'm all for parents having a voice, shouldn't they? it is their children after all, right? >> as a teacher my biggest complain was involvement of the parents. i welcomed teacher parent conferences. i welcomed when they would come into the school and sit at their child's desk and want to know what's going on in the school. i think that's what every school would want. the issue is because she is asking questions that their answers, they can't answer to, so they have to try to shut her up or punk her and make her scared and bully her away with lawsuits and with the idea being she won't be able to pay for a lawyer and she will go away. i normally don't support things like gofundme but we should get some gofundmes going to make sure she can have her day in court. which is not what they want. the more parents that get involved the less bureaucracy
and bullying the schools are allowed to do. this is the school board. these are unions, not teachers. the teachers catch the brunt of it. >> julie: suing a parent for having a voice in their child's education is ludicrous. >> i don't know where that's at. we're all taking crazy pills i guess. >> julie: thank you for watching "the faulkner focus". "outnumbered" is next. it lets us refinance 100% of our home's value, not just 80% like other loans. that's a big difference. and it can mean a lot more money for you and your family. and this is the best time in history use it because home values are now at record highs while mortgage rates are near record lows. the newday 100 va cash out loan lets you take out $50,000 or more to use as you wish. improve your home, pay down debt, or just put it in the bank for the financial
