on the streets. she has been oblivious, intentionally oblivious to what is going on because it is easier, in her mind, to focus on someone else as opposed to focusing on what's going on in her own backyard. >> todd: just this week and 31 people shot in chicago, five of them were killed. speed to a new poll shows 39% approve of president biden's job performance as he faces a crisis across the country. >> todd: the president getting remarks as the white house faces increasing pressure over the baby formula shortage, aisha hosni lived. >> this is definitely not good for the president. we are just about five months away from midterms and take a look at these poll numbers right here. according to new nbc survey, president biden's approval rating has tanked now 2:30 9%. that is 14 points below where it was just a year ago. and his biggest issue, the

so basically, they told us we may be on our own for a while. that is very scary. as to land owners down here, we are scared for each other. that is what we will relying on. >> todd: insein in the united states of america a situation like this. you are told you may be on your own for a while. this isn't a hurricane. this is a hurricane, if you will, created by the biden administration. they've had weeks, months, years directed bike and have done nothing about it and put you in a horrible position. the biden administration refuses to handle this problem and you say the criminal smugglers, the human smugglers are getting more and more brazen. how was that even possible? >> yes. they don't even commit they are just stopping the middle-of-the-road, the main road. the illegals are running from the brush into the waiting vehicle. they don't even pretend to hide anymore.
the cartels are finding smugglers through social media. and the recent one that they stopped near our home, the smuggler, that driver was a 19-year-old female from new jersey. >> ashley: i want to ask you one final question. it is pretty easy and quick but how many of these encounters do you see every day or every week? >> there is about three every day at least. >> ashley: stephanie crisp canales, i hope you and your family stay safe. >> thank you. house speaker nancy pelosi revving up on a text for this conservative supreme court justice and the president who put them on the bench. >> who would have ever suspected that a creature like donald trump would become president of the united states? the fact is, this is a dangerous course to freedom in the

democrats? what will they run on? they have a good bumper sticker which was bin laden is dead and gm as a lead general motors and save the auto industry. that was the argument and easy to absorb. that was where joe biden won another four years. but i'm old enough to remember when it was a big no-no for any lawmaker to attack members of the supreme court. nancy pelosi who turns 82 this year my check in with an approval rating and recent political morning console pole at 31%. she presides over congress, todd and ashley that is currently 21%. history as any indicator, barack obama lost 63 seats in the first term and higher approval rating than joe biden. nancy pelosi will be retired in november after reds who know me and give the house back to g.o.p. because when you resort to name-calling right out of her sophomore year, that shows you have no winning argument on your
side, guys. >> ashley: remember when jen psaki made these comments about president biden's ultra desantis maga comments? >> who came up with ultra maga? why did kick it up a notch? speak with the president made those comments himself this last week as you know. >> todd: so a "washington post" report says otherwise. it actually says attempt to appropriate the brand as a political attack. it was hardly accidental but actually rose from six month project to find the best way to target republicans hound by biden's advisor. by the center for american progress action fund, which is a liberal group. are you shocked, joe question work >> ashley come i can't believe it, jen psaki light? there must be a day ending ny? look, ultra maga is the new deplorables, right?
and this is obviously the brainchild of jen psaki herself. she was the white house press secretary and she loves the communication team? they come up with stuff like this because this was a press secretary celebrated by some as the greatest press secretary ever. and yet they continue to come up with messaging and in her case jen psaki or karen john pierre that fails to recognize the american people. donald trump to todd's first question the only crutch at this point that okay, don't look at us or the people that are responsible but the ones held accountable, the people are taxed with solving problems, look at the guy out of the office for 17 months, that is the guy you want to look at. when that is the message they are in big, big trouble ashley and todd. >> todd: these are the people also in charge of getting formula on the shelves. i'm not holding my breath.

to do. and i did in the white house then being on the cover of volk. >> it seems no matter what you do how well-intentioned it is, the criticism is constant. >> forget that grammatical challenges. >> we don't know if melania trump is moving to the white house. >> the only thing she is working on is an escape tunnel. >> they always criticize me. and i'm used to that. i move forward. and i'm here to help these people. and those people who criticize me i would encourage them to help in their own community or may be joined the future initiative. >> what does foster in the future? why is working with foster kid such a passion? >> i decided to work on everything foster care facility

she wanted to talk a lot about the future, of course i wanted to ask what was it like to be in d.c.? are you thinking about going back and, you know, she said you never know. never say never. but we will be grateful to melania and the first team for that opportunity. >> todd: what is your one big take away? >> one big take away i don't know whether she likes d.c. or not. i saw her answer on the entry talks about the privilege and the responsibility of being the first lady. she took seriously but does she want to go back or not? i think she's more politically astute than people give her credit for it. she understands what they would be up against. but it was not a "no" by any means. it was a willingness to look at the reality of what our country is facing. she talked a little bit about that, baby formula, the border, leadership or the lack thereof. so, she may not like it, but it
is an openness and willingness to go back as people are interested to see. >> ashley: you said openness and willingness. that is interesting to see. >> may be openness. if that will be a conversation between the great magnet king and queen whether they want to do that or not. >> obviously has someone who has looked up to melania, what was your reaction? what did you feel that she felt when you brought up the whole cover of "vogue"? you were talking about that and she was not salty or whatever? >> boom, i know these people and i know this industry. of course, they will not give me that opportunity. she was on the cover before she was first lady. but the point of the question was, look, fashion is your thing. you are beautiful. joe biden is on five months into the presidency -- she said it and summed it up it is biased and doubles standard. >> todd: just to clarify you

pennsylvania. will they a vote based -- control in the house, and we spoke with the voters to say the issues on their minds are clear. >> i think what is most interest to parents right now are the prices of gas. prices of groceries. the inability to get certain items at the grocery store. >> i think energy is the key. who will support that and expand that bring down prices both in electricity bill and the pump? >> i think we need someone to stand up and fight to make a change. >> remember, guys $4.48 the record this morning is just the national average. in new york well over $5, happening in california and several other states. >> ashley: we will bring in brian brenberg, brian, $4.48 a
gallon for regular, used, premium, diesel above $5.56 in most areas. it cost $40 to get half a tank. that is insane. and almost unheard of. so what is the deal here? when is this going to level out? do you see any end in sight? oh, gas is still kind of cheap them under $5 where i am in places like connecticut. that should be a no-go. >> that is not cheap! that is not cheap! we are nowhere near cheap and things will get worse. it is fairly obvious. we are coming into summer driving season. people want to get out, get into their cars and go places. demand is going to be high. they biden administration has done nothing, absolutely nothing to increase the supply, which means prices will go up. we will probably see $4.50 average in may and may be sooner
than that. we will be $5 in july when the driving season starts. unless something radically changes and china shuts down the economy again. but this is not going to get better anytime soon it would and political self sabotage with the biden administration. i cannot believe people have been in d.c. this long who understand how much gas prices matter to they were electoral prospects are completely cutting themselves out because everybody in america knows this administration has done nothing. it has been all fanfare, no results. >> todd: they were willing to sacrifice their political lives for the green new deal and makes no sense. elon musk says twitter is accusing them of violating nondisclosure agreement. legal will to complain i violated by the bot sample size is 100. this actually happen. using the bot sample size to price out the deal. i will not do the deal.
very confusing. later he said never thought it would be cheap. never try to acquire social media companies. what is next in the saga? >> i think elon musk wants a lower price for twitter. what he is doing is pressing on twitter soft underbelly. i don't think the people you think are on twitter are actually on twitter. this is bot, spam account, fake account. he wants to show that number is higher than twitter admit so he can pay a lower price for this thing. he knows he's buying a fixer upper. he doesn't want to buy something rotten to the core as he wants to get to the bottom of the user numbers. >> ashley: okay, brian brenberg, thank you to the take for that. hopefully you are wrong and you say we will seek gas over $5. listen -- >> i don't think i am come i'm sorry. i used to be right on this one. spooked dome asked >> ashley: thank you so much, we appreciate it.
