1:03 am
mayor over the weekend. actually, todd. >> todd: jackie, thank you. congressman says there are important questions that need to be answered about the buffalo/suspect before politics gets in the way. >> the man has committed one of the most heinous acts our country has ever seen. we all understand that. we need to get down to the facts. what was driving his behavior. what was he looking at? how did he inquire his weapons and as a former new yorker, the toughest job laws. how did he inquire his weaponry. and you go down that pattern. >> todd: former ice director and prosecutor and former dhs deputy jonathan, your thoughts on the violence this weekend? it is really horrific when you think of the shooting. it just shows that there really truly is evil in this world here this is just horrifying.
1:04 am
and a couple of things that stand out is, will the department of justice, this is a death penalty case and will they seek the death penalty? it is where they on this case. and another question i have is this administration going to use this as a moment to unite the country or to further divide the country and a few motives similar to the gunman on anyone who disagrees with them politically? >> ashley: jonathan, that brings me to my next point for the president spoke yesterday and he was talking about how hard it was to be a police officer and to respond to these type of situations. let's listen to what he has to say and i want to talk about it on the other side. >> we are not trained psychologist. you are law enforcement officers. we expect you to be everything. we expect everything of you. being a cop today is a heck of a
1:05 am
lot harder than it's ever been. covid-19 1 million deaths in america. leaving behind the estimates of nine significant family members. >> ashley: so jonathan, here we have two major shootings in the past 24 hours. now, the president is talking about how essentially the police, yes, gears, so we assessed the time to be talking about this? >> well, it really is remarkable that this administration, they want to politicize everything. but the funny thing about it is this whole issue with the police has been this anti-police movement that has been led by this administration and the democratic party. it is not a funding issue. this is a game they are playing right now to act like oh, defining the police. crime has not risen because the police funding started out.
1:06 am
the anti-police movement led by the democratic party. people that celebrated people that assaulted police, and we had the vice president which running for vice president supported a riot bail fund to support anti-police were rioters. so what is really stunning that this administration can even with a straight face act like supportive of police. use all the way they treated the former patrol agent six months ago. border agent. races motivation for the border patrol agent simply doing their job and trying to enforce the law. so it is stunning. absolutely disgraceful the way they treated police officers in the way they continue to treat police officers. >> todd: as always, we have been following a shooting tragedy like we seen over the beacon and the focus goes to control specifically with regard to the new york shooting where we know more about the suspect involved. why was this guy able to get it done in the first place with all of the right flags?
1:07 am
quite frankly, with very strict new york gun laws. >> that is kind of an interesting point. there were red flags and thrust a shoot up about a year ago and wondered what was done with it. we don't know enough now but it is interesting when you think of this administration, at least on the federal level spending so much time on doing things like shutting down moms and dads from speaking of school board meetings and other things that are purely political that they are letting dangerous people right underneath there knows this because they are not focusing on things to keep the community safe. i think it remains to be seen as a congressman was talking about how this person obtain the or violation of any laws. where there are other missed? my guess is, we will find that there were cured but at this point, it is really too early to tell. but to your point, strict gun
1:08 am
control laws really have not been effective in preventing shootings or mass shootings. if you look at places strict gun control like washington, d.c., where i am, there are these places where people are allowed to buy guns. you don't see a difference in crime and in fact a lot of places where strict gun-control, primary server you can think of chicago, washington, d.c., like i said. but it is a point where investigators trying to find out what is happening. how he got the guns, what led to the shooting? what could have prevented it? >> ashley: don't forget governor kathy hochul got on tivo within hours and immediately talked about gun control. so obviously something will be talking about but we have to get to the feet of title 42. is it back within the next couple of days? if it is going to state and pass or not? what do you see if title 42 does come in fact, end may 23rd? there could be an increase of
1:09 am
18,000 migrants a day if this does end. >> well, this disaster will be at dell might get any worse if possible to believe. in this administration has wanted to get rid of title 42 the whole time, but it seemed so inconsistent with keeping draconian covid mandates and people while having no controls on the border. but, when title 42 ends and they wanted to end, all we are doing at the border is basically her border patrol led by this dhs secretary, he used the word patrol, simply a processing center for illegal immigrants. so all of our resources will be on processing, providing medical care, providing food, meanwhile drugs will be coming across the border, a unit smuggling will be going on. this administration has been the biggest friend to the cartels, to the smugglers. it will get even worse, but that
1:10 am
is what they want. this is the last line between what they have and completely open border, which is what they wanted all along. once that happens, they will take a political hit, but politically, they believe it is in their best long-term interest. it is going to be a disaster. the american public will pay a major price in terms of housing, education, health care. this administration doesn't care. they don't care about public safety. they have shown little interest in the opioid crisis where 107,000 americans died last year from overdoses. they are doing nothing to prevent the drugs from coming in. nothing to hold people accountable. they were bringing them in. it is scary. it is getting worse and they don't seem to care about it. >> todd: finally, jonathan hunt the trial for michael sussman begins today after a trove of gps board but please do us a favor, jonathan put on your federal hat for a
1:11 am
man there a minute. we bring this particular case, this particular defendant to trial with all of the defendants and also possible witnesses out there. if he was not certain at this one would be a win form. >> that would be my take on it. if they will be more cases, the first case you bring will be your strongest case. so, my guess is he has a lot of confidence he will have a successful case here. this case is really in a lot of ways a straightforward case. because michael sussman is charged with flying, but to prove somebody is lying, you also have to prove what the truth is. in the truth is what the clinton campaign was using their influence and power to lie to the fbi to get the fbi to investigate the political opponents, which really should be one of the biggest scandals if not the biggest scandal in
1:12 am
political history. but back to your point. i do believe he believes it is a very strong case. my understanding is they have building records that this defendant build the clinton campaign through a law firm for the time he spent with the fbi pretending to provide us information for all touristic reasons, which, in fact cynical, political dirty politics as worst. >> ashley: jonathan dominic jonathan fahey we appreciate you getting up early on a monday morning, we appreciate your insight, thank you. >> thank you. >> ashley: a new poll 9% approve of joe biden's dome xp when the resident getting low marks as the white house faces increasing pressure over the baby formula shortage. look who's got on "fox & friends first," live in washington, rational hustling. >> nice to see you both this morning. this is not looking good, the
1:13 am
president has five months left to get out of this bad hole. take a look at it. according to a new nbc survey, president biden's approval rating has tanked 2:30 9%. that is 14 points below where it was just a year ago. his biggest issue is the economy, inflation 22% of americans want them to fix the cost of living and 10% view abortion as a top issue. no surprise people are fed up with the economy as gas prices keep breaking records from a gallon of unleaded now sitting at a whopping 448%. the baby shortage is not getting better any time soon. here is transportation secretary pete buttigieg why it's taking his administration so long to fix this. the president said more actions is coming but the whistle-blower in september, february, the
1:14 am
recall, why is it taking so long? speak with the administration acted from day one after the recall taking steps like creating more for the whip program more actions on the way including imports. >> so last week the remarks about inflation the president opted to blast republicans stood up offering any new ideas how to fix it. senator hagerty this week and said enough is enough. >> no one is taking responsibility for the cynthia biden administration. he's calling us have her name in the book. in looking for scapegoats in america with previous president were trying to blame this on vladimir putin, it wouldn't be happening. if joe biden did not waste american energy in the first place. >> this monday morning public remarks scheduled for the president today that he has set to visit buffalo tomorrow, todd, ashley. >> todd: aishah hasnie live in d.c., thank you.

1:16 am
white house as president and covid is still a threat or some other public health emergency, would you want to stay on in your post? >> well, no to the second question. >> ashley: former president trump clashing with dr. fauci and trump calling dr. fauci and 80 and 2020. saying americans were tired of hearing from him. >> todd: that will not be an issue my don't think he will ask him but i'm going out on a limb here. >> ashley: okay, now another violent weekend in the windy city, but mayor lightfoot seems more on and in the upcoming race and lightfoot should be reading up on the real issues facing chicago. in joining us next. >> todd: plus "fox & friends first." >> it is sad to see what is going on when we are deeply into it. i think a lot of people are struggling and suffering. >> todd: pete hegseth and the

1:23 am
said people acting like they have sort of legitimacy has no right to criticize or this coming from the most illegitimate and incompetent mayor in america right now is astounding. mayor lightfoot has been outmatched ever since she has taken off and never learned how to deal with the situations on the street. she has been oblivious, intentionally oblivious to what is going on because it is easier in her mind to focus on things somewhere else as opposed to focusing on what is going on in her own backyard. >> ashley: it cannot be a good look for the people in the city especially the shootings happening 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. chicago crime stats, 17 were shot fatally since friday evening but also with the homicide of chicago, they are on pace to be the deadliest since 1996. let's see, murder 196, the sexual assault 699 robberies, 2,093 and reported thefts, this
