3:01 am
okay. ainsley: i was thinking this morning all of our babies were born here at fox were. all of your kids born while you were at fox? steve: not one. ainsley: where were you before? steve: i was down in our nation's capitol all of our. ainsley: yours? steve: they're older than 25. brian: a few month old. 996, yeah. he was born, the other two were born i forget their names. they grew up really quick right here. ainsley: kaitlin and kirsten. yes. steve: one of the things working on the morning show as you know for 25 years i never made breakfast for my kids. i was never there for breakfast. but, we were always there for lunch. we were always there for dinner. ainsley: every afternoon activity. steve: absolutely. you from the beginning have been there for us. for that today we have put together that three hours that hearken back. that was 23 years ago.
3:02 am
"fox & friends" started 23 years ago over in the former sam goody's records store and today we will have a balloon drop just like that. brian: i didn't realize you got all the confetti. >> straight down on me. >> that wasn't cgi actually confetti. ainsley: we want to thank all of our viewers. we have sent crews out all over the country so we can talk to you in person and thank you so much for watching us all these years. brian: they are on strict per diem and that goes for pete hegseth, too. pete, a limit to your spending. you are live at melissa's diner in fort myers, florida. will cain, unless he does not show up. will cain is live at carolina drive-n greenville, south carolina. and rachel campos-duffy on the road, a farmhouse restaurant in bran stolen, missouri. the somewhere somehow they are located in the united states of america. steve: pete, let's start with you, where are you and what are you doing? pete: good morning. we are at melissa's diner in
3:03 am
fort myers. are we ready to go this morning? [cheers and applause] pete: i don't know, i feel like melissa's could lay claim to the headquarters of "fox & friends" breakfast with friends. i don't know that we have been anywhere else more often and better received than here. and 25 years. although we have been doing diners for what now five or six years? and i know, brian, you invented the stairway walk and hallway walk and basically walking i think steve invented the diner if i'm right up in new hampshire. we are hearkening back today to many, many years of talking to the people. bringing the voice of the people to america. and we will do more of that today. steve: thank you very much. it worked out from -- the reason we invented the diners and it was during the new hampshire primary, is we were supposed to be at a location in new hampshire but the location was not very pretty. so i was talking to gavin, the producer we have got to go some place else? what's open at 7:00. the mall opened at 6:00 in new
3:04 am
hampshire or the diners, and so we said you know what? if we did the diners not only would there be live people but we would have free food. ainsley: yeah. chris christie, tucker carlson and president trump. steve: donald trump was running for president and jeb bush was there it all worked out okay. and will you are where? will: i'm in greenville, south carolina at the carolina drive-in. look, this is unscripted but the bar has been set. pete at the melissa diner in florida much they were excited. carolina drive-n greenville, are you excited about "fox & friends"? [cheers and applause] brian: that is very nice. will: no coaching or scripting. by the way they also made here a "fox & friends" special. i don't know about branson in florida. but i have got grits, ainsley, you know about that spartanberg, greenville i have got grits. will: a lot of butter. brian: can i ask you a question? will: i will think about it.
3:05 am
[laughter] brian: yes or no. will: go okay, go for it. brian: you are inside but what makes it a drive-in? will: brian, that's also unscripted moment. ma'am, could you come here? are brian wants to know why is this called the carolina drive-in. [laughter] better ask k.c. will: i will track down k.c. while you go to branson. brian: i thought it was a lay-up. will: i thought it would be too for me or her. ainsley: maybe it used to be a drive-in. steve: meanwhile, rachel, that is not a drive-in. that is a diner and i was at that diner the day after the 201 general election. they have from great food there. rachel: yeah, they sure do.
3:06 am
by the way i already met people, steve, who were here when you were here in 2018 and they are excited to come back because fox is here. this is the farmhouse restaurant here in branson. famous for blackberry cobbler. can i just mention from your last conversation about all the babies that you guys have had while you have been on "fox & friends"? when i started at fox i had just had baby number 7. and i have had two more since. so, so there you go. i wanted to make sure we are all catching up on all the baby news? ainsley: how do you do it. rachel: we are going to be going inside. i will do the shout-outs like will and pete once we get inside. but this is a great location. by the way, this is trump country. voted for trump over 70%. i think the polling for fox news is even higher. i'm sorry. almost 80% for trump. i would say fox is in the 90% for our favorability here in branson. steve: you are in missouri. the show me state. so you will show us as did you
3:07 am
go inside. rachel: we will show that. ainsley: rachel, you are our hero i don't know how you do it leaving home with nine kids. rachel: it's a good husband. is he back there taking care of everything. ainsley: that's good. thank you. steve: of course, for 25 years we have been a news channel so we should probably talk about the news and yesterday's big news was as we told you yesterday, in the morning, that 10 governors were going to join greg abbott down in texas and talk about where's joe biden? there is a humanitarian crisis on our southern border. you saw it under the bridge in del rio and we will have another one unless it sticks and they came up with a 10-point plan. let's see if the administration even notices that they were down there. ainsley: and our reporter down there was talking to some of the border agents and they get -- they showed him a picture that he actually tweeted out of these drug cartels, suspected drug cartel gunmen involved in human smuggling with these pictures of them standing on the border.
3:08 am
look at that with ak-47s wearing tactical vests they were taunting and trying to intimidate the national guard down there. this happened in star county, texas. brian: bill melugin tweeted that out and basically says this is the challenge. this is the challenge that texas national guard has to deal with the federal government is overwhelmed. not resourced. they are about to get vaccination mandated. armed mission at our border. the president of the united states according to q. poll 23% immigration issues. it 22% the situation at the southern border. he doesn't seem to care. republicans gather that the urgency of senator cruz -- 10 of them go down there not only is this a problem. i will give you an idea of the solutions for the problem. before we get to that here's what they had to say. this is not one of those teleprompter moments. this is a bunch of men and women who know
3:09 am
the border issue is an issue for all 50 states. >> president joe biden has caused a humanitarian crisis and chaos on our border and we know that that chaos will be repeated unless and until president biden takes action p action. there are three people to blanel for making america a more dangerous place. president joe biden, vice president kamala harris, and secretary alejandro mayorkas. so we are here today to shine a light on what is going on here at the southern border. and how it is impacting all of our states, not just the state of texas. >> over the past 8 months, we have seen illegal immigration just soar and joe biden has done absolutely nothing to confront this self-inflicted crisis. steve: how would joe biden know? he has never been in his life to the southern border. brian: got a zoom call.
3:10 am
ainsley: come up with 10 point plan they want to end catch and release. they want to clear the judicial backlog. they want to continue title 42. they want to reinstate those agreements with our northern triangle partners and with mexico. there are 10 different plans but it looks like they are going to send this list to washington but is he probably not going to do anything about it he has ignored it he hasn't been to the border even as a senator or vice president. kamala harris went that one time and stayed just a little while and flew over to california. but they're furious with them and they feel abandoned and the ranchers out there feel abandoned because these cartels, these migrants are walking through their property we heard one lady say she found footprints. her daughter was sleeping the footprints were under her daughter's window. brian: ignoring this major issue that has his numbers under 40% approval. ainsley: doesn't make sense.
3:11 am
brian: most say he is incompetent to run the country. this is part of the reach and he doesn't care. i don't get it. ainsley: almost 70% disapprove of border policies and he is still ignoring that. steve: big number in the next segment going to be a major problem for democrats in the next rejection. we will talk about that shortly. ainsley: coming up, a growing number of seattle cops are calling it quits. even that's not deterring the city from reportedly wanting to slash the police budget again by 50%. steve: today, marking 25 years in business. we have jam-packed program full of surprises as we walk down memory lane to celebrate fox news 25th anniversary all morning long. you are listening to change the world by eric clapton which was number 6 on the billboards top 125 years ago today. ♪ it change the world ♪

3:21 am
taken from her and she has now been given a death sentence. brian: yeah, that is you are seeing this all across the country, 2200 kaiser employees just lost their jobs. cops and firefighters about to lose their jobs. this is about losing a life. this is what the u.c. health is saying now. for transplant patients who contract covid-19, the mortality rate ranges from 20% to 30%. shows the extreme risk that covid-19 poses to transplant recipients. ainsley: what is her mortality rate without the kidney? brian: incredible. friend to friend not like she is on a list. ainsley: exactly if you are on a list and someone passes away and they call you quickly. my mom went through this process. get to the hospital right now. we have a kidney for you. you might be a much that. my mom was the alternate. the first person ended up getting the kidney because they were a match. i understand they have to pick on the list they really think is viable. this is a friend who wants to give her a kidney. steve: so now they are looking for hospitals outside of

[laughter] pete: what's your take on where we are? >> actually this country is in trouble at this time. they want to start going into our bank accounts. let's start at the top. we will start with obama, show us his bank account. all the politicians show us their bank account. then we will go show our bank account. but they are on the top to do it. we need term limits and get them all out. pete: show us your money and we will show you our money. there is some wisdom right there. i like that. pete: they wrapping us? i think we are done. we will get back to you in a moment. >> okay, no problem. pete: back to you in new york. great folks here in fort myer. hope to get to hear more of them. steve: they are all there because today is the 25th anniversary of fox.
3:34 am
when we come back, ask some of the folks what they watched before fox and how it's changed their viewing habits. pete: that's a good idea. steve: all right. see you then. pete: we will. ainsley: thank you, pete. my sister-in-law is from fort myers. so beautiful there love fox. steve: mel's. we have been there a couple of times. four times. brian: madness seattle police officer continues. ainsley: 1 9 officers have officially left the job at seattle police department. that is this year alone with 20 more separations in line to be processed in the coming weeks. but the staffing crisis doesn't seem to phase the city council as it it cutting the police budget by 50%. steve: former seattle candidate lance randal joins us from out west. lance, good morning to you. >> good morning. steve: okay. so somebody -- one of the council member's, staff members was emailing saying hey, what if we tut another 50%?
3:35 am
and then they are going we are not actually going to do it, but just the fact that they are thinking about it is terrifying. >> yes, it is terrifying. you know, in my opinion, this experiment of defunding the police as a way to try to address the issue of police violence has not worked. the fact that the city council moved forward with cutting 20% and we see the results of that cut, crime is up in seattle. police officers are leaving. people less safe in seattle and there is chaos. so the experiment of trying to address the issue with a broad brush across the entire police department just didn't work. i think you have to focus on the officers, particular officers who commit atrocities and address them while at the same time supporting the officers who are keeping their oath to protect and serve. but this approach of going after the entire department has caused a serious problem here in the city of seattle.
3:36 am
brian: so you have had, mr. mayor, this has been about two years now. you have had many times to adjust. what do these city councils not get about the fact and the truth about crime because of their action? >> well, as i said earlier, this is an experiment to see what will happen if we hit the purse strings of the police department to see if it's going to cause a change in the culture. but, to change the culture, you have to start with individuals and their mindset and the individual officers who commit the atrocities and deal with them. but, trying to take this approach, victimizing some officers, a lot of the officers who have done nothing to anyone but try to do their job it has made morale go down. it's caused us to lose officers and is making very challenging for us to recruit officers. in a city of this size, you have to have a certain number of officers per capita to make sure people are safe. and we are in jeopardy of our
3:37 am
public safety service delivery system collapsing. it's all around as we said every day and people are very concerned here in the city of seattle. i'm very concerned because, as you know, a while back i was almost a victim of someone assaulting me with a gun in my neighborhood. i'm very concerned about the fact that we continue to go down this path knowing that this experiment is not working. steve: right now in seattle the response times is over 60 minutes any time you pick up the phone. it's a desperate situation. ainsley: for the people need to call 911, they are the ones that suffer. thank you so much, lance. >> thank you. steve: all right. 22 minutes before the top of the hour. let's go out on the streets of new york city and there she is on 48th street janice dean with the fox weather forecast for this 25th anniversary of fox news. janice: it is a beautiful day for a birthday celebration on fox square. let's take a look at the maps real quick. i will show you the temperatures across the northeast. we do have the potential for
3:38 am
showers and thunderstorms just to the south of us. so high pressure is kind of protecting us near in the northeast. you can see where we have got the showers and thunderstorms. potential for heavy rainfall and flash flooding again today for our friends across the florida panhandle, parts of alabama in through middle tennessee. alabama, georgia, and in towards the carolinas. just be aware of that. that's requesting to kind of linger, that front over the next couple of days and bring the potential for showers and thunderstorms and perhaps some flash flooding. also looking at a system moving into the west. much needed rainfall for southern california. even some mountain snow for the northern rockies. it is the 25th anniversary. i felt inspired to write about my time here on fox news. i was interviewing this time 18 years ago. best job i ever had. i hope you will read it happy birthday, happy 25th anniversary fox news. and it talks about all the things that i have shared with the viewers on t are v from getting engaged to the pregnancies. of course my diagnosis with m.s. and the fight for accountability here in, no. so i'm so happy to work here.
3:39 am
best job i have ever had. i know you guys feel the same way. brian: upon we get it. janice: yes, sir. brian: all right. great job. ainsley: all those great children's books you have written. ainsley: thanks, ainsley we love our job. ainsley: we have been through a lot together. such a family. steve: 25 years today. the department of justice weaponizing against parents who are protesting. lara trump reacts to that controversial move coming up next. brian: and rachel campos-duffy is having breakfast with friends in missouri as fox news family celebrates our 25th anniversary. you seal her as she tries to get indoors. she is stuck on the outside. we have got to get her. in who are whoever has the keys, let her in. ♪ ♪ >> it's been an extraordinary story in which 25 years fox has really changed the nature of telecommunications in america

3:45 am
25 years. i know we have a tight segment. i'm so honored to be part of the fox news family. without fox, so many americans would not be as informed as they are because we report news here that nobody else will even touch. ainsley: that's right. we bring the news to middle america. the folks whose voices were not heard before. so grateful to be here. brian: this is an example in this story. other channels are mocking the fact that we think this is a big deal. mocking the fact that parents get up and want to talk about the curriculum and what their kids are learning. so that's why when they turn around to the doj tells the fbi stars going some of these parents. do some background checks. that is a bruck back pitch for other parents to get up in front of their board of educators. >> it's a really scary place to find ourselves n america. that you guys said it leading into this segment, i think, this is a weapons weaponization of
3:46 am
the judicial system against americans completely unjustly. americans and particularly parents are absolutely fed up right now with what they see happening to our children in schools. they are fed up with the mask mandates. they are fed up with the critical race theory, with the indoctrination of our children to hate our country, to hate one another. they are fed up with in some places vaccine mandates for their children to even be able to attend schools it seems like, guys, zero focus on making sure our children are proficient in reading, in math and things that can further their future. but what you heard from the justice department there is that they don't care what you have to say. they are happy to indoctrinate our children. they are happy to tell parents that they are domestic terrorists for taking an interest in our children's education, in our most precious commodity the children of america, where were these people last summer when cops were being assaulted? if you want go after people.
3:47 am
how about cops that were murdered? how about complete and entire cities that were destroyed. those are the domestic terrorists, not parents who want to make sure that their children are receiving an education that they agree with. it seems completely normal to think that parents would want to do it. steve: here's the thing is it cuts across both parties, democrats republicans and independents, i will make it all three parties who show up at school board meetings not happy with how things are going in the country. ainsley: exactly right. thank you, lara, good to see you this morning. >> thanks, twice have a great anniversary. ainsley: thank you. today rachel campos-duffy is in plan son, missouri to celebrate the 25th anniversary of fox news channel. steve: she is in it i had the pleasure of visiting in 2018 the day after election night. rachel: you are right. we are at the farmhouse restaurant here in branson, missouri. hey, everybody, say hi to "fox &

4:01 am
steve: curtis and peggy strange renamed the show. we had a nationwide contest on what should we call the program? we wound up with "fox & friends." to tell you the truth and by the way the show used to, when it was a news wheel where you repeat the news every 15 minutes. it started 7:00. it started right now 25 can years ago here we are starting the official anniversary. when it came to the name "fox & friends," that was the one chosen. but my favorite, another viewer suggested why don't you call it because you are always doing crazy stuff. why don't you call it breakfast in bedlam. which was hilarious. ainsley: who, look at brian. brian: silly string. steve: look, i used to have bangs. [laughter] ainsley: i mean i watched you. steve: in the beginning it was louie and allison and gordy and i and then brian came along and we have had so many people on
4:02 am
the program. steve: ed wasn't the first one. >> allison when it was a news wheel show. brian: right. keep in mind. steve: that was ainsley's first day right there. brian: s that watt first pentuplus desks came out of the arm. steve: some people on the program one desk like an octopus different arms. brian: day one. steve: that was the day that you and i danced and i knocked over your portrait. ainsley: kathie lee. jlo. lindsay lohan y'all interviewed her. got to go to the white house. which was so interesting. because we all remember as kids visiting washington, d.c. and taking pictures in front of the white house. and when you look at those pictures, and know now we have been in there. this job has afforded us that. steve: and because donald trump had been on "fox & friends" for a number of years every monday
4:03 am
before he ran for president. when it was time -- when he was elected president. the very first interview he did from the white house was "fox & friends." ainsley: when "fox & friends" started, i was a sophomore in college and the macarena was the number one song at the time first wives club that movie came out. you never learned it. brian: still remains my favorite song though. pete hegseth feels the same way. is he live in mel's diner in fort myers, florida. will cain is in greenville. and rachel campos-duffy is until branson, missouri. steve: pete, how has fox news changed the lives of the folks there at your location? pete: oh, my goodness, first of all, roll that footage. brian and steve, you twice look like you are 10 years old. brian: i know. pete: unbelievable how young -- you still look young. you guys don't age, i'm telling you. those photos and videos oh my
4:04 am
goodness making everybody's day here. i will tell you when you talk to folks here though. i have been around doing this for, you know, five or six years the diner thing and they come up and say i think i know you. the relationship these viewers have with the three of you and brian and steve here from the beginning, their lives have changed right alongside yours. and you can't down play the amount of impact you guys have had. "fox & friends" has had. the fox news channel has had as far as an imprint on personal relationship with people who know there is only one place they feel like they can trust. there is only one place where people are shooting straight with us. brian: i hear you. brian: brian. pete: where they are actually looking at stories that matter to him. there is a huge reservoir of gratitude here. i say the same back to our viewers who we are so grateful for and wake up to us who support us we don't have a job without them. a mission together. that's what makes this channel so much together. is that it's a mission. we love this country. we love capitalism. and we love "fox & friends." don't we?
4:05 am
[cheers and applause] ainsley: many of these people have a voice. they didn't think when they watched the news their opinions were not being shared. so at fox we give both side and they finally feel like they are being heard and that's why they choose us. brian: right. pete: exactly right. brian: hey, pete, you don't mind if i talk to your archrival, will, do you? pete: the evil will cain? go ahead. brian: will, set the scene. will: set the scene. i'm at the carolina drive-n greenville, south carolina. not far from where ainsley grew up. it's in the same state. where i can tell you both from what i have heard today, brian. and let me give you a little bit of personal experience through my lens as well. what fox has meant to its viewers. you know, before i was at fox, just a short 14 months ago, i was at espn. and i was involved with a show there that went on the road not unlike these diners for "fox & friends." i did a show called first take. we would have big crowds.
4:06 am
people were entertained and they loved that show but it was simply a source of distraction and entertainment. which is important. but this is another layer deeper. because i hear from the diner the same thing pete hears, this fox is an island in the ocean. an island of independence. an island of truth as i walk around and talk to these people they appreciate and it as pete said we appreciate them in return. the connection with the viewer sun like anything i have ever witnessed in the media. it is a two-way street. and it is a two-way street of appreciation and connection and truth. and that's my one, you know, one year here at fox lens, but getting to talk to people who have been fans of this network for a quarter century. and i want to also echo one more thing pete said. y'all looked very young but, brian, honestly how old were you in those clips? [laughter] brian: i think i was 33. steve: 23 or 23, 25 years
4:07 am
younger. brian: 33, about i think. ainsley: how old is brian. your son is zero. only a few months old. >> brian is 25. ainsley: will, you have to ask people around there if they have ever been to campbell's drugstore. it's not far from where you are right now. my mom grew up on augusta road. brian was making fun of steve and me yesterday because we used to got drugstore not only to get ice cream and sandwich. we would sit up at the counter. steve: the soda fountain. ainsley: walked through the shampoo aisle, got socks campbell's drugstore. will: campbell's drugstore. one more thing you would appreciate i had for breakfast do you know what i had? i had country ham. it is under rated. ainsley: yes. better than sausage. it. brian: comes in a can? steve: no. ainsley: no. steve: inbe joy. now let's go rachel. you know, rachel, one of the
4:08 am
things the founder of the channel more than 25 years ago knew there was a big part of the country that was not being served. there were a lot of voices not heard. and now for 25 years, people have heard that side of the story. rachel: absolutely. first of all, happy anniversary to fox news. brian, you are right. you look so young. i looked at those pictures, you look like a young tom hanks in those videos. brian: right. tom hanks from bosom buddies. rachel: right. i'm in branson. tourism is off the charts here. this is the best year on record for branson and the best year before that was 2019. and this is up 24% from then. plan son is happening right now. and the viewers here, the customers here are viewers,
4:09 am
loyal viewers at fox. one thing i hear about is exactly what pete and will have been saying. we get a side of the story here that we would never get. a lot of people saying we would never know about del rio, texas, if it wasn't for fox. everyone loves you guys here. hey you i guys. [cheers] rachel: happy anniversary, fox. nice to see you guys. steve: the great thing about the diner section is you get to hear people who have never been on television before but when they are watching tv they are talking at the tv. this is their chance to actually stay to america what america is thinking. brian: right. what do you do when griff jenkins is on. ainsley: we ask him what his favorite memory is. hey, griff. griff: my favorite memory is launched my on air career with you back in 2005 when a judge here in d.c. sued. steve: you had the pants. griff: the video of me hopefully
4:10 am
you do not have it i look tragically young not old enough to be on television. i started in 2001 when i came to fox with ollie north to document american heroes on that show war stories. i got to work with the great late tony snow on radio show and on air with you guys and greta and sean and everybody. happy 25 to you. i think what's so special about today is moments ago i got a text from a lifelong democrat turned republican back in the 2016 election, a forklift driver in ohio named geno difabio. he has been on our air. he just wrote in and said guys, happy 25. best show on cable. thanks for all that you guys do. it's a testament to really the opportunities that we have turned on this channel to change people's lives. brian: griff, you have become unbelievable reporter. it's hard to believe that you just kind of went into this gradually. you are kill it. ainsley: always in a great mood. best personality. you are willing to go. you have gone to the border so
4:11 am
many times and left your family. stayed up long hours and worked weekend. griff: you are very, very kind to say. i have got say thank you do you feel our bosses that gave me an opportunity. if you think about what the 25 years of fox has meant to americans you can see the opportunities we had to really see the day. kind of remind you of that robin williams speech about car per car carpdeem. will. steve: you were running around washington with a pair of very plaid pants. then you wound up wearing them. we have got find that video. ainsley: weren't they lily pulitzer. ains gruf griff i asked him for a verdict he got very angry. if. ainsley: hold up "the new york post." the core story how much the middle class is going to be taxed. griff: yeah, well, listen, crisis has been averted for now.
4:12 am
here we are with the mechanisms of washington. democrats are looking to accept and they are ready, apparently, to accept mitch mcconnell's emergency short-term extension offer he put out there yesterday. that will kick the debt ceiling can down the road to just december. the president, instead, leaving today to go out to illinois, blasting republicans for not giving them that massive social spending deal. watch. >> my republican friends need to stop playing russian roulette with the u.s. economy. if they don't want to do the job, just get out of the way. let the democrats vote to raise the debt limit without obstruction or any further delays. griff: here's the thing, democrats need to resolve this growing war between moderates and progressives, senator sanders turn up the heat on senator manchin and sinema yesterday. >> two people do not have the right to sabotage what 48 want and what the president of the united states wants. that, to me, is wrong.
4:13 am
griff: so now democrats either raise the debt ceiling alone through reconciliation or they negotiate in good faith with republicans who appear highly unlikely to cave at this point. >> want to spend this much money not on roads and bridges and ports. then you are not going to get any help from me to raise the debt ceiling. griff: this as the new quinnipiac poll gives the president lowest score since taking office. just 38% of americans approve. 53% disapprove. on the economy 39% approve. lowest marks guys immigration 25% approving and mere 23% approve of his handling of the mexican border. the president will head to illinois today and deliver remarks on vaccine mandates for businesses where he will make the case that they are, indeed, good for america. brian, ainsley, steve? brian: that's a stunning number considering everybody in the media is covering for him. and he still has got 38% approval rating.
4:14 am
ainsley: another channel, when a leftist channel, when they talk about it on air, they get blasted on social media for even reporting the number. brian: q. poll. steve: griff, thank you very much. here is the other number. here is the number that the white house is really worried about. $175. inflation has not been this high in the last 30 years and mark zandy, over at moody's analytics says when you look at inflation, and 30-year high. you look at all of the supply chain problems. you look at how hard it is to get people to deliver stuff. and the average family spends an extra $175 a month on food and fuel. think about it. 157 bucks. that's all your groceries for a week. that's your light bill. that's your phone bill. it's the price of what life is like in america today because of inflation. ainsley: look at some of the numbers. a gallon of gas. steve: gone up a buck. in one year. ainsley: pepsi has gone up $2. a little more than two.
4:15 am
a dozen eggs gone up 25 cents. used to pay 125 for a dozen and now pay 1.50. steve: if you can get it right now there is a bacon shortage. >> bacon! brian: sizzlean. steve: i haven't seen sizzlean for a while and juice. according to -- i was reading this morning on eat, this are not that and they are running out of juice. ainsley: craft philly cream cheese. smucker's jam. pop tars, sprinkles. brian: none of that is good for you. ainsley: it's in all of our cabinets. steve: these are all bread and butter issues. those are the ones that impact the most to people when they think should i reelect this person? should i elect this person? it costs me 175 bucks more a month. ainsley: he wants us to pay for illegal immigrants to college for free. most of you probably can't afford to pay for your own kids to go to college. brian: we can't hire anyone to put pringles in a jar.
4:16 am
have to go in a bag now not enough people to put them in a jar. quick thing, you are worried about $175 a month but not worried about emily rajerkowski? ainsley: she is on "the new york post." brian: she overwhelmed the 175 i think for a lot of the people at home. ainsley: she is beautiful. brian: right. she seems happy. steve: 7:16 in the east and jillian joins us with news from florida. jillian: brian laundry's father is expected to join in the search for his son. the family's lawyer suggesting the fbi is requesting his help. laundrie remains the only person of interest in the gabby petino case. the 22-year-old's body was discovered in a wyoming park after the pair took a cross-country road trip. appears to be creeping into the suburbs. two high end retailers robbed. stealing purses from a blooming dale store. other video show thieves running off from merchandise louie

ainsley: pete you have to wear shoes to the award ceremony i heard you're not wearing any right now. you wearing flip-flops? pete: come on, it's florida. flip-flops! brian: we got to get him a wardrobe deal. steve: excellent job there, pete thank you, sir. now, let's go from pete to will, will's in the center square right there, and he's in south carolina. will? will: i am, i am, i'm at the carolina drive-in here in greenville, south carolina. you know, i like something that both of you guys said in that setup. steve you compared this to taking calls, you said fox & friends used to take calls. brian has a radio show, i used to have have a radio show. the call line, the phone line is how you connect to your listener s and these diners are how we connect to our viewers. it's the much relationship, how we hear back from people that watch our program and the second thing is i like what brian said about turn the prompter off, the evolution of fox & friends. do you know what i hear over and over as i talk to diners? i can tell you're sincere,
5:08 am
you're authentic, you're real and there's something in that honestly, production process, that others can say oh, it's un polished or , you know, there's a mistake being made. yeah, do you know why? because that's how people are in real life. because you don't read perfectly as you walk through life talking to everyone, and fox & friends and these diners has managed to accomplish that authenticity while connecting to its viewers in a way the very very, i think, few other programs have been able to do and we'll do that throughout the morning as we check in with you here from the carolina drive-in in greenville. brian: will that was very joe concha like. i enjoy that self-review. will: did you see what i did? brian: and you reviewed yourself, which meant many people -- ainsley: that's kathy lee. she came on our show and wrapped herself. like oh, my god. steve: she saw the time cues which we've been getting for 25 years and now we go to branson, missouri and rachel campos-duffy is at the farmhouse where they've got a wonderful
5:09 am
breakfast. rachel: yeah, they still miss you here from when you were here back in 2018, not sure if you remember having the blackberry c obbler, steve. steve: oh, yeah, i do remember that. rachel: we talk a lot about food ainsley, check out this t-shirt. it's the ingredients and it says zero sugar, zero calories. steve: [laughter] rachel: so that's all good stuff you're so right about what will was saying, i think the best complement we get when we're out with the people is they say you're saying exactly what i'm thinking, and that's why it's so important for us to come out and see the people, because there is a lot of common sense and concern for our country in the middle of the country, they're not often covered or respected by the other networks , but fox news absolutely does care about that point of view, and we project that out there, so people know that they're being heard. even if washington is not listen ing to them, their voices coming through on our network.
5:10 am
steve: well it has been great today going from diner-to-diner- to-diner, across the united states, getting a real good idea of what america is thinking and that's what we've been trying to do for the last 25 years, rachel thank you very much. ainsley: thank you, rachel, we really understand our viewers because we grew up in that same environment. i mean, you're from long island which is very conservative, i grew up in south carolina, you're from kansas, we understand our viewers, and we understand that we're bringing something to them that no other network did. we're telling them both sides of the story and they always tell us thankfully, you're finally saying how i feel. brian: i would say just one thing. i think long island is very purple-ish. it depends on the county, you know, who you're with, the area, and you're with, you got a blend steve: here's the thing. what we're doing and what we've been doing for 25 years on the fox news channel is what i was taught in journalism school and when you tell a story you got to tell the story and there are often two sides to the story , and back 25 years ago, a
5:11 am
lot of the story was not being told and that is why 25 years later, we are the news leader, because people are going you know what? i hear both sides. ainsley: we're never told what to say and what not to say. geraldo said a lot of people at fox might not agree with me but i'm real, genuine and i am who i am and i will always shoot straight with you. brian: you heaver tried telling geraldo to do anything? that's why, no last name. steve: meanwhile, let's tell you a little bit about what's going on. do you feel the pain at the pump absolutely because gas is now $1 more per gallon than it was a year ago. do you feel like you're paying much more for bacon? well its doubled in a number of years, if you can find it. as it turns out and the cover of the new york post today talks a little bit about how mark sandy at moody's analytics looked at the fact that when you take a look at inflation, the average family is now forced to spend an
5:12 am
extra $175 a month on food and fuel and housing and you're feeling it. do you have an extra $175 a month to spend on that? you've got no choice. it's like a tax. brian: so you have eggs are up $0.25 according to their survey, dove soap which by the way is soft and freshening makes me feel fresh is up $0.80. steve: what about irish spring? brian: i'm not sure as much as i love the irish it does leave me a little chaffed. steve: soap? ainsley: i actually have both of those. both of those are in my shower. brian: i love the guy in the turtleneck who tells me how to wash. ainsley: [laughter] brian: from the commercial. steve: from the 1970s. it's a 25-year show. ainsley: oh, i remember that, yes. brian: his little pocket knife but it costs more a 12 pack of pepsi is up $2 and ajax, who uses that anymore? ainsley: i have that.
5:13 am
brian: which is the name of the soccer team in the netherlands -- steve: it's a cleanser. ainsley: philly cream cheese, jillian is over there, you're from philly. brian: it's death by a thousand cuts right? ainsley: last year was $3.15 this year it's $3.40. my mom, every single sunday would go through the newspaper and clip coupons and -- steve: everybody did. ainsley: if we had a coupon we could get it. steve: you really wanted to go on double coupon day. usually it was tuesday in our town, but when you look at all those prices and you think why aren't we getting stuff? there seems to be a supply chain problem. part of that is right now, off the california coast there are half a million shipping containers that can not download those shipping containers are in such high demand a year ago, rather two years ago before the pandemic the shipping container would rent for $2,000. now, it's north of $20,000, and all that cost gets passed on to
5:14 am
you. brian: stuary varney was here a short time ago. if you don't believe me look at what he said. stuart: don't see inflation tapering down very much at all. that is a hidden tax that affect s everybody. i think it's going to get worse. if we get a cold winter, we've already seen a spike in natural gas prices. if they go up a lot more, you're all going to feel it. heat in your home, getting goods to the factory, heating the business, it's all going to go up. this winter could be a real spike. brian: such a shame because we are the saudi arabia of natural gas. it's such a shame because we were producing oil & gas, now we're begging opec to pump more, and you know what they're saying no. you know what the other oil & gas production behemoths? russia and do you know what else bothers me as much as i'm pro- coupon i hate being behind somebody with a lot of coupons. i know the line, it's going to take me an extra half hour. steve: one-time that was the case. brian: its been a while. steve: because now you can scan
5:15 am
them. ainsley: it's a nice gesture. steve: go find out what ajax is. ainsley: you're not helping her just pay for the bill. brian: this has really boomeranged. steve: ultimately here's the thing. all the extra prices you were paying you're not happy about it and who do you blame? in a lot of cases you blame the people in washington d.c., and whose at the top of the food chain there? ainsley: you would think if the president sees his approval rating at 38% he would do something about the border. brian: that story like the nuclear subs. meanwhile, jillian mele, according to reports wants to report. jillian: i could be wrong, so please correct me if i'm wrong and i believe philadelphia cream cheese is not actually from philadelphia. ainsley: really? steve: i think it's a style. i think that cream cheese was before. jillian: get on this brian. this is quite the claim.
5:16 am
ainsley: isn't it true of french fries too? brian: mine are from france. jillian: i'm going to do headlines and we'll have an answer in about two minutes so let's start with fox weather. rescue crews responding to a second night of flash floods in alabama. up to seven inches of rain falling across the birmingham metro area washing out roads, flooding homes and downing trees. firefighters rescuing one woman from the top of a car that was submerged in water as strong storms sweep across the south. >> los angeles city council passing one of the strictest covid vaccine mandates in the nation. mayor eric garcetti requiring everyone 12 and older show proof of full vaccination to enter most indoor spaces. restaurants, movie theaters, mall, gyms and more will be included. businesses that violate the rule can be fined up to $5,000. >> president joe biden is facing backlash for using this fake white house set. the president delivering remarks across the street from the white house, critics on social media blasting the move, stephen miller tweeting, "biden uses
5:17 am
this bizarre virtual set because it allows him to read a script without teleprompters that can be seen on camera." >> and tunnel to towers ceo frank siller making a special announcement sharing how a donation from fox corp. in honor of 9/11 helped him achieve an incredible goal. >> we're delivering 50 mortgage -free homes today, $1 million from fox, oh, boy. that really put us over-the-top. jillian: fox donated the money after siller completed a 500- mile walk in honor of his brother stephen a new york city firefighter who died on 9/11. that is a look at your headlines steve: from the philadelphia inquirer, philadelphia cream cheese was invented in new york, in 1872 according to the kraft heinz corporation, got its name in 1880 as part of a marketing strategy to associate the product with the high-quality food and dairy farming for which the philadelphia area was known
5:18 am
for. jillian: and the philly cheese steak. brian: but i'd add cream cheese in general is a soft, usually mild-tasting, fresh squeezed made from milk and cream. steve: brian google ajax. brian: [laughter] or iax. ainsley: what? steve: okay. brian: it's my native tongue, dutch. ainsley: [laughter] 8:18. 25 years, everyone's used to this. what? brian: jillian. ainsley: brian, stop talking. still ahead, squad member tallib makes a stunning admission when asked why she's wearing a face mask we've got the candid response caught on camera. brian: for the record she hit me, we're marking 25 years on fox news channel and shawn hannity has been here since day one, you know what his 401 (k) is like? he will join us live with a look

5:25 am
that are hideous from 25 years ago and whoever aired those pictures needs to be fired yesterday. that's it. ainsley: you know we did have the idea to come to your house with a marching band this morning and surprise you. but we were scared you might come out with a weapon. >> no, so all right whoever is running this animation, i hate, i just want you to know for the record. steve: oh, look at this. ainsley: your son looks like you now. you all have sons that look like you. steve: shawn you had hair like a helmet back then. brian: still do. >> well the funny thing is, in a way, my son has hair just like that. so this is what his hair will be like a few years down, 25 years from now, and you know, when we think back and steve, i had actually forgotten that you were the weather guy, right? steve: well shawn, do you remember that when you and allen did a show at night, 9:00 at night, but once a week, hannity

5:27 am
this great audience that you guys have and you've been number one now for years in the morning , on cable news. i'm just very humbled and grateful, i'm appreciative, its changed my life, and it's fun, i've done real work for a living , and 20 years of my life, i was, you know, 10 years in construction, 10 years in restaurants, i've been working since i was eight years old and pretty independent since then, and if i wasn't doing this and getting paid, i'd be driving around in my car talking to myself and i'd look like brian, that's what brian does. brian: let's be honest. you spotted me on the road on long island. absolutely. >> we can all be retired in florida one day and driving around talking to ourselves. brian: believe me i'll be getting voice mail when i call you. steve: we'll be at the villages and all have golf carts. >> andy won't be coffee in the cup, i can pretty much guarantee that. steve: we had coffee younger. ainsley: shawn what would your parents say if they were alive to see your success because you

5:29 am
aren't seen in new york you don't get advertisers, and cnn was owned by time-warner and time-warner wouldn't put us on. >> they wouldn't put us on that was a big hurdle, a big challenge, and you know, i will tell you, and you got to give credit to rupert, roger, all of the people with the brains behind this , it was a bold innovation, everybody laughed, nobody thought it be successful, not only did we very quickly become number one, but we've been able to maintain that number one position for a long period of time. it is a very competitive industry. i think the reason is for our success is that we have stayed true to that original motto, fair and balanced, and we report , you decide, and i know the media doesn't portray us that way, but if you look throughout the day, i get up in the morning, i like to get my news from you guys to find out
5:30 am

5:31 am
, but this person doesn't agree with you on this , and this person doesn't agree with you on that. it's like so what? that's fine. steve: that's life. ainsley: if you knew what we know about him he's the most generous person, he pays for lunch and dinners for his entire staff every single day, he doesn't care what they order, he's given so many wonderful generous gifts to people to pay for funerals and to put kids through college here at the network, people that have been part of his life people that don't make as much money so you're just a really good person shawn and you've helped all of our careers. brian: your character is one word, kindness. it really is. that's the only thing nice i'll say about you. >> you just ruined my career. it ends today. brian: you are a kind guy. >> here's the thing. we live in amazing times. i can tell you when i first started in radio i've been on radio now 33 years, you didn't have the internet.
5:32 am
i mean, my first computer was i think five and a quarter inch floppy discs and dos. steve: from radioshack. >> until al gore created the internet. steve: thank goodness. >> we didn't have access to information the way we do now. my phone blows up all day long with, you know, this story and this story and this story, and people that work with me and we work together, and they're sending me information. we have more information available at our fingertips than any other point in history and this information, it's news at the speed of light. steve: and do you know what, shawn, that's the great thing about your program because you're able to take all that information from the day, summarize it in an hour, and give a point of view and that's why you were the king of cable and that's why we had to talk to you on the 25th anniversary. >> i put peter doocy and it is now must see tv to watch peter
