todd: president biden falling back on the support of his old boss, former president obama, this all comes as the president's approval ratings tank in the wake of multiple crises. joining me now, bill mcgern, former chief speech writer for former president george w. bush. good to see you as always, my friend. read between the lines for us. is obama getting a third term? >> well, looks that way. as you point out, joe biden stumbles in afghanistan, at the border, with covid, are raising real questions about his competence. what has he done right that he can take credit for? and this reflected in a huge
2:16 am
drop at the polls. normally when you're in trouble with your legislation or something, you bring the president in. that's the big gun and people are glad to see that. but now they're wondering if joe biden would have any of effect. so obviously they're going to barack obama. and it's not just in the senate where joe biden's legislation has stalled. terry mcauliffe basically said the same thing, he admitted joe biden was unpopular and that's a problem for his race for governor. todd: we'll get to mcof mcaulin a second. i want to focus on the obama as the savior concept. to me, isn't barack obama a little bit, i don't know, too right for the current iteration of the democratic party? in other words, is he left enough to appease what the democrats in congress are trying to do? >> well, i do think barack obama -- i don't aagree with him, but
2:17 am
i do think that he has sufficient standing in the democratic party that he does have some influence and i think it's telling that they apparently calculate he has more influence than the sitting president. one of the problems i think, one of the humiliations for joe biden is that he's done all this, he's aimed big, i think some people would say overreach, in the hopes that he is going to be a transformational president, unlike barack obama. now he has to turn to his former boss to help bail him out. i think that's kind of an embarrassing turn of events. todd: you mentioned calling in obama to help with the governor terry mcauliffe, former virginia governor terry mcauliffe campaign for governor once again. mcauliffe and youngkin separated by 4 points with a margin of error of 4.2%, that means this is basically a toss-up. how will obama win back the voter who has run away from
2:18 am
mcauliffe in light of the focus there on crt. is obama the guy to get those voters back in the mcauliffe camp? >> he might be. look, the republicans have the leading suburban moms and so forth. a lot of these are the people who are demonstrating in virginia. so they calculate, one, that barack obama may be the best to get them back. also, that they're going to turn out the vote. they're also of bringing in stacy abrams. i mean, they're bringing in everyone but joe biden because this is going to be determined which turnout. will the democrats be excited enough to come out for terry mcauliffe and apparently he's worried that they won't. todd: it's a great point. it may not necessarily all be about the crt rebrand, if you will, although obama should be able to get some of those suburban moms. like you said, it's all about getting to people like i don't care about an election in 2021 which is an odd year, why would i go to the polls. obama may get them to go out. bill, great insight as always.
2:19 am
great to see you again, my friend. have a great day. >> thanks, todd. carley: the time is 18 minutes after the hour. police could be taken off the streets in crime ravaged seattle over today's vaccine mandate deadline. now one washington state trooper is using his final signoff to send a message to leaders who are putting politics above public safety. >> this is the last time you'll hear me in a state patrol car. jay insley can kiss my [bleep] carley: that trooper will join us live after the break. you do not want to miss it.

2:26 am
what to do for covid, for traffic stops. we worked for 18 months without having any issues. suddenly we have to have mandatory vaccines. so that's not taking the vaccine was not even a question. the process, how they did it was ridiculous and making people do this or you're losing your job was ridiculous. carley: you know, you made your feelings on governor inslee very clear during your final call. his vaccine mandate goes into effect today, show proof of vaccine or essentially lose your job. you said it was not a he question on whether or not you were going to get a vaccine. the did you file for any sort of exemption? >> yes, ma'am, i did. i filed for he religious exemption. my family, we're god-fearing people, as well as a altogether of the other troopers i work with. they did accept our exemptions after some time and then they told us, sorry, there's no job you can do with your exemption. so they came out, told us, well,
2:27 am
we can retrain you for different positions but there's only a few positions and you'll have to move you across the state. obviously wouldn't be to the salary we have. at 22 years, i'm maxed out in regards to pay. this is the best i'll make the rest of my career. for me to take a lesser position in regards to pay would be very detrimental to my family. these are the type of actions they were doing. they were not very open or clear what they wanted to do, ho how had they wanted to do it. people had very good questions. in fact, our chaplain with the chaplain foundation here, he's even being fired. this is a gentleman that his job is to push the chaplaincy and they're not going to accept his exemption. carley: i'm sure you're not alone in this. what are other officers saying about this vaccine mandate? >> people are pretty pissed. it's interesting. they started this in seattle and
2:28 am
it kind of blossomed. we had thousands of officers from across the country reach out and offer support. this is happening in liberal washington state withly brail jay inslee -- with liberal jay inslee but it can happen anywhere. i you grew up in texas. i have a lot of good friends there. texas has always been pretty conservative. the more people that move in there that think like jay inslee, it tends to flip things so et voting is very important. in the state of washington, guys didn't know what to do. the guys i work with, i'm old enough to be their dad. i'm old enough to remember what an eight track player is. we have medical conditions, there's sole incomes like us, my wife works part-time at a place but we're basically sole income. i'm it. with four kids, with that, people are scrambling. but the support's been great for our fellow troopers.
2:29 am
we've been lifting each other up, supporting each other. the outcry from the public has been amacing. the -- amazing. the way people have reached out, it's incredible. carley: have you heard from other officers that are willing to take the step that you did and are going to leave their jobs because of this vaccine mandate? because we're dealing with a situation right now where crime is up in liberal cities like seattle and then if you think about how you could have a vacuum of police officers leaving because of the vaccine mandate, it could get pretty scary. >> yes, ma'am. my beat is yakima. our fatality rate and crime rate, murder rate is high. we have people opening up on cars with guns because they're mad because they've cut them off. i've never seen a homicide rate like it is now. it's insap.
2:30 am
my fellow coworkers they feel the same way. when we started off the program, there were several hundred that were willing to get fired. then they started looking at financeses,ing looked at what they can do and they decided to take the vaccination. the question that people aren't asking are how many people that are vaccinated that are willing to leave. i've asked several people, nobody wants to answer that. i can tell you, it's going to be probably double numbers. the people not taking the vaccination, d.o.t., fire, busses, all these folks, they did it long enough to finish their careers, a few months, or to find another job of. the people that are leaving today, that's a drop in the bucket, ladies and gentlemen. i would be concerned about the safety of the future of the state. carley: the choices that people like you are being forced to make are pretty unbelievable. i was reading a portion of your bio. you seem like a fantastic police officer. you delivered a baby in your first year as an officer. you received the red cross
2:31 am
real life heroes you award. i wanted to highlight those two things and many other accomplishments so it is certainly washington state's loss to no longer have you on the force. we did reach out to governor inslee's office for a statement, have not heard back but robert lamay thank you for joining us. and best of luck. >> thank you so much, guys. keep doing your work. you're doing phenomenal work and god bless. .carley: thank you so much. todd: even the mainstream media throwing a flag on dr. fauci's super spreader football theory. another case of rules for he thee but not for me. the bidens ditch their masks during a swanky date night in d.c. we talk to joe concha next. ♪

todd: comedian jon stewart says it's time for the mainstream media to stop blaming former president trump for the country's divisive discourse. >> i think it's a miss the take to focus this all -- mistake to focus this all on donald trump, that he's an incredible super villain that changed the nature and temperature of the united states. todd: he believes focus on trump is unhealthy and instead he focus should shift towards real problems facing americans, adding that the mainstream does

a terrible job of deescalation when it comes to hot button issues. carley: meanwhile, nbc fact checking america's top doctor anthony fauci after he predicted college football games would be super spreader events. >> i think it's really unfortunate. but it never happened. covid cases, hospitalizations and deaths now all donation wide. todd: joe concha, fox news contributor, joins us now. joe, why did nbc call itself out like that? is it because football is such a big part of the nbc fall lineup or are they sort of realizing that americans are having a reckoning with dr. anthony fauci. >> that was a package, right? and all right, carl hey, ex carn was a package is. carley: it's a pretaped story that you see on television. todd: well done. >> exactly. this wasn't done
2:37 am
extemporaneously, off the cuff. this was planned. they used a clip from their own prime time host and joy reed to disprove an argument. they could have used a lot of other clips from a lot of other networks. they chose that of. i wonder why that is, internally perhaps there's something going on in terms of the rhetoric that comes out of that show, maybe the nbc folks saying enough. i remember when dr. fauci was hailed by many in media as the most trusted, admired man in america. check out this headline, dr. anthony fauci and andrew cuomo remain the most trusted leaders on coronavirus while donald trump and jared kushner are the least trusted. that's great. so here's why fauci has fallen as far as as he has. he's. he over exposed himself, hesharh instead of data and facts. you break it down. fauci picks and chooses his warnings. college football games, outside, bad. biker rally, bad.
2:38 am
obama birthday party with thousands of people, he's silent on. bottom line is, the cases are in steep decline, every college football stadium across the south including florida hospitalizations are down nearly 65% while you see 90,000 fans packed into gator stadium where my 8-year-old daughter declared she is going to school. carley: congratulations to her. let's stay on the covid front. we've been showing pictures of president biden and first lady jill biden, they want on a date night on saturday but they were spotted without wearing masks and, joe, they should know that that all people over 2 years old which i believe the president is, they're required to wear a mask indoors regardless of vaccination status in washington, d.c. so is this another case of rules for thee, not for me? >> wow, rules for thee, not for ds, as in democrats, and in
2:39 am
this case -- thank you, todd. the fully vaccinated president will wear a mask outdoors when no one is near him, he'll wear them on zoom calls for world leaders and wears them every time he's in front of a camera except when he he doesn't know that he's on camera and, boy, i would love to hear what dr. fauci has to say about this, by the way. i would also like to say that reporters should ask the president about this but he doesn't take questions much these days. it's been nearly 60 days since he did the last one on one interview which is an odd way to try to sell a spending bill when you're not willing to answer questions about it. todd: my research shows that fancy restaurants and money keep covid away. that's what my notes say. i guess that apparently is what bidens are leaning on there to not wear their masks. it doesn't keep it away in elevators. a washington post columnist is roasted on twitter after she lectured a stranger in an elevator to wear a mask.
2:40 am
here's the tweet bragging about this, sign in elevator says masks required, me getting out, it would be nice if you wore a mask, man, i don't care what you think, america 2021. this tweet of course by karen -- i'm sorry, ruth marcus. it's bad enough that she feels she has a right to lecture anyone. what does it say about our media that they would then brag about it, joe? >> i think twitter's the worst thing that ever happened to folks in this business, because, again, they have no discipline. they can't control themselves. there's no editor or of he producer to stop them, saying maybe this isn't a good idea. a lot of times they use this to virtue signal, immorally better thank -- i'm morally better than you. karen -- ruth marcus can was wearing a mask, she is protected. she shouldn't brag about this. this is one more reason why not
