vetting and says that she is not the only one. joining us now is a physician and the author of "in the land of invincible women" there is her book right there her name is dr. ahmed. >> good morning. >> do most muslim women support extreme vetting. >> it's complex. a lot of muslims around the world are afraid. many of us, especially opposed to radical islam are welcoming it. we don't want to prohibit refugee he is here forever. we want to help those in need. but we do think we have to make assessments based on the regions that are identified. libya, the third front of isis. smom somalia beyond failed. cannot travel outside of capital let alone governors. isis, special for helping iraqi forces. muslim minorities that are persecuted in pakistan and other places were thrilled
3:19 am
that this draft wording includes penalizing those that commit honor violence and percent cushion of minorities. a lot of muslims are subject of that. there is a positive feeling. brian: in syria we see the shots of babies being washed up on shores after lacing together rafts. we get that donald trump saying i have a big heart. that's why i want to build safe zones in syria rather than bring them here because we just don't feel we can tackle the screening because there is no government capable of doing barack ground checks. >> that's not his only motive. fantastic move and one the last administration failed for years. when muslim leaders asked president obama to do the same. i think any syrian that's been displaced from their country would rather prefer to live there if it was safe for them to do. so that's a strong move. look at what has happened. people protesting in our city and around the world. where were those protests when those babies were washed up? nobody was carrying about the neglect of syria for the last six years.
3:20 am
so these tears are rather hollow, in my opinion. it is a powerful move to argue for no-fly zone. brian: you don't think saudi arabia should be on the list? you are okay with it not being there, why. >> saudi arabia is complicated but united states needs it geopolitically. clean up ideology and extremism. saudi arabia ally in the war against isis and important rebuilding peace efforts with israel. that is blossoming nicely. ainsley: that's where mecca is. if muslims go there they can't come. >> in mecca is the global religious epicenter for all muslims. the united states, if it prohibits american muslims from visiting mecca coming back would be appalling. it's not just seven nations. 68 different nationalities of muslims make their home here in the united states. brian: other nations not included and are quiet and not condemning this order. >> in fact, the saudis are in favor of the no-fly zone and

3:26 am
the way did. donald trump make it clear to you yesterday he is going to do his best to get rid of the red tape and make your life easier to make money? >> he did. you know, through our good intentions of creating regulation and make sure that we have proper audit trails sometimes we can go overboard. as a small business owner, i can tell you when there is federal funding involved in state executed or municipally executed contracts, there are three layers of government it can get dawntding when you are running $100,000 contract or 10-million-dollar contract administratively. essentially the administration of that contract is the same. i think we can do better than that and be more efficient and productive in that regard. steve: that is something natalia that i hear so many small business owners say. the regulation is killing me. now, i understand you did have a private conversation with
3:27 am
the president. you talked a little bit about the fact that your second generation from portugal, your family is what did he say about that? >> well, he was very welcoming. at the end of the day, our country is made of immigrants, whether we are here first generation or whether we have been here for a while. we need to support that endeavor. we need to be thoughtful as it pertains to keeping our nation united, but we are one nation, under god. let's show that we are not divisible because we are indivisible. we are all part of the equation. weave need to think. we need to stop. we need to really reflect on what we're doing. steve: sure. >> we need to make our country safe while being respectful of every person in it. steve: this is something new for us to have a chief executive for the country who actually was a businessman. so, you know, he has walked a mile in your shoes. he has made a payroll. he has written out the check. is that something that is going to take a little getting used to? you like the idea? what?

>> you know, i actually think it's wonderful. i have to tell you i was a big fan of president obama when he put in the small jobs acts in the -- that bridge loan allowed my business and many businesses to succeed and it was instrumental in turning us around. i think where president trump is going is he is making it easier to grow our economy, which is what this nation desperately needs. steve: sure. >> i think that in terms of going forward that we have a lot to be thankful for. i take a lot of solace in the fact that i have a president that know what is it's like to have to make payroll every single friday. steve: right. >> it's a tough job to do. it's an awesome responsibility to have, and it's one that i appreciate that he considers and understands fully. steve: indeed. you were right there yesterday for the signing of the executive action. italia luiz.

>> i president obama could receive up to $20 million for upcoming memoir which is more than any other president. i guess he has already come up with a few options for the title. first there is ""fifty shades of grey"." [laughter] then there is good night-uhh moon. [laughter] final there there is, of course, the sisterhood of the traveling mom jeans. unfortunate that he wore those. steve: the mom jeans. that's funny stuff. brian: good to see after nine days barack obama back in the headlines and did not slip by jimmy fallon. steve: that's right. did not slip by president trump either. he is already awake and tweeting this morning. he just tweeted in the last five minutes when will the democrats give us our attorney general and the rest of the cabinet? they should be ashamed of themselves. no wonder d.c. doesn't work.
3:34 am
let's bring in somebody who works in d.c. that's louie gohmert, the congressman from the great state of texas. >> good morning. always good to talk to you guys. brian: congressman, do you think as president trump gets his people in place there's going to be less problems with executions on executive orders and everything else down the line? >> yeah. a good book once said and still says you can't serve two masters and apparently we had an acting attorney general that was still serving the obama administration. and, by the way, if she really cared about the constitution, why didn't she say something about those seven countries when that was put in to the section of the ina that it was during the obama years. if you look at the executive order, and i've got it right here, you won't see those countries mentioned because it was the obama administration that named those countries that we had to be concerned about. so, it will be good to have jeff sessions because he is
3:35 am
loyal to the constitution and not to political philosophy of the obama years i it's going to be awesome. ainsley: when this news broke last night, what went through your head and why do you think sally yates had to go? >> well, because she violated her oath. i mean, she needed to go. she obviously had a political agenda because if she cared about the constitution, and she thought there was some problem with naming these seven countries, she should have brought that up before obama left office. but politically, she showed herself to be a political hack and hacks have to be jacked and she has been jacked and she is gone. steve: there you go. that's an easy way to put it. louie, you know, you work in washington. you know that all of the departments in the administration have career bratscareerbureaucrats. largely partisan as well.
3:36 am
when you look at sally yates, you say she was a partisan. but what about the partisans at the department of justice and then at the irs, at the epa, places like that. yesterday sean spicer said state department writing that thing we didn't like the immigration thing. just get out if you don't like it. >> exactly. i think what fl g tells steve king and small group of us two weeks ago is exactly right. somebody said what is the number one thing in the trump agenda that we should do to help trump? and he said well it's not actually listed on the agenda, but have you good to give the president the ability to fire people that aren't doing their job. that means amending these civil service eackets. we have got to do that because he has got to be age to say those two words that viewers love to hear you're fired. that's the only way we're going to get things cleaned up and get political hacks out
3:37 am
and care more about the constitution than their political circles. and then we can start getting this town cleaned up and it will start smelling as pretty as it looks. brian: i will know if there is any chance of you guys ever getting along if the supreme court justice nominee, who is able to get those at least 10 or 8 votes needed to get a supreme court justice confirmed without the nuclear option. 10 of which senators are in trump won states. i want to bring up this terror issue. saudi arabia is not on the list. pakistan is not on the list either. that bothers me. should it? >> it should. i mean, i have read the pages that weren't made public yet that were classified. i don't think they shouldable. but i'm aware of how saudi arabia has played both sides. they thought if they could be our friend and help us and help us with terrorism and he, yet, over here fund terrorism activity, then they would be in the middle and they would be safe. they found out they're not
3:38 am
safe. and if the obama administration had been concerned, more concerned about the saudis, they would have listed them among the seven countries that they did that were at risk. the reason saudi arabia is not listed and i think we should entertain thoughts of listing them but they are not. give us vet against people say who think are. we don't have that from the countries that have not been banned but where they're moving into the u.s. has been paused. and that's the operative word. it was simply pause you had. the nation us were determined by the obama administration. it's just that now we have a president who will actually do something. you know, all of the agencies know that iran is the top funder of terrorism. what does obama do? he sends them $100 billion, lots of casual, gold. and we now have a president
3:39 am
when he sees that a country is the top supporter of terrorism, he is not going to send them money like that. and they're going to be listed as a threat and we're going to do something about it. but, it also encourages saudi arabia. by the way, steve, he is doing exactly what he said. our friends are going to be treated like friends and our enemies are going to know they are our enemies. we are not going to pay the school yard bullies to leave us alone. that doesn't work. it never has. steve: people shouldn't be surprised that donald trump is following through on campaign promises. it's just so refreshing to see a politician doing that. >> not used to be shocked. jeesh, somebody is going to do what they say? that's a shocker. trump is doing it. god bless him. this is awesome. ainsley: congressman, good to seyou. heather: one of his big campaign promises and this morning there is another vic

3:47 am
well, the stock market does not want to hear that the market gone straight up on the grounds that we're going to get a tax cut and that's going to give us growth. if you delay the tax cut, the stock market is disappointed and goes down. ainsley: well, so it could go down for the next year. >> no, no. i will not forecast the stock market for the next year. but yesterday that was the word on the street that we're not going to get a tax package until somewhat delayed down goes the markets. that was yesterday. brian: what's the theory behind that? you can't do obamacare and tax cut at the same time? >> the theory is that president trump is fighting with republicans in congress over the timing of the tax cut and the shape of it and the details of it. there are a lot of people in congress, republicans, who don't want to raise the deficit, don't want to have to borrow a ton more money. steve: big tax cut the deficit would go up. >> correct. steve: way it worked during the reagan years so much money came in the deficit went like that. >> that's their side of the argument.

you don't want more deficit. the president wants side of the argue. is you have got to cut taxes because that's how you get growth. ainsley: that effects everyone. obamacare doesn't affect everyone. but this effects everyone. i guess it does in some way, shape, or form. , this everyone will be in favor of a tax cut. >> i don't know about everybody being in favor of a tax cut. ainsley: why? it would help everyone. >> ask the left. ainsley: it would help them, too. more money in their pocketbook? why not? steve: they want as a big tax out of your powcket as possible. depends. >> half the country pays no federal income tax whatsoever. why should they be in favor of cutting taxes for the half who do pay taxes? ainsley: they don't care. >> they want that money. they they don't want less money from those people they want more. steve: sounds like donald trump regarding taxes is not on the same page as paul ryan and mitch mcconnell. would that be accurate? >> at this point, yes. there is not a fight but a long negotiation and it's going to be a very tough
3:49 am
negotiation. brian: because speaker ryan has worked on this since he was 18 years old with jack kempf. i'm spriftzed they can't have something to present. >> here's the argument that i hear all the time from investors and the republican base. the first thing that president trump should have done was cut taxes. just like ronald reagan all those years ago. cut taxes and do it now. don't wait until hav you are doe with obamacare and infrastructure package. cut taxes now. cut taxes now. ainsley: you might be talking to him because he does watch our show. >> i would be delighted to talk directly to our thank you very much. you. ainsley: thank you, stuart. we have newt gingrich, laura ingraham and talk they will be here live. steve: al sharpton might need to head back to sunday school what he said about jesus that has social media exploding. carlie shimkus is here. ainsley: the shimkus.

defend it in court. now dana bente the u.s. attorney for the eastern district of virginia has been named as acting attorney general until jeff sessions is confirmed and president trump taking to twitter already this morning. just moments ago. vending his frustration with the process saying, quote when will the democrats give us our attorney general and rest of cabinet? they should be ashamed of themselves. no wonder d.c. doesn't work. and just moments ago on this program, congressman louie gohmert of texas weighing in on it. >> politically, she showed herself to be a political hack. and hacks have to be jacked. and she has been jacked and she is gone. >> democrats are blasting the firing. senate minority leader chuck schumer took to the floor last night saying. this. >> if this continues, this country has big trouble. we cannot have a twitter presidency. we didn't k. not have a presidency that thinks oh, this sounds good.

4:05 am
rogue. because who is the chief federal law enforcement officer of the land in the president of the united states. not the attorney general. for the justice department to be run by a rogue attorney general who won't take direction from the president is simply unacceptable. donald trump is 100 percent correct. chuck schumer's delaying tactics along with the other democrats in the senate have deprived him of the tools that the constitution gives him to enforce the federal law. and that is an attorney general who will run the justice department consistent with the president. i'm beginning to think that all these orders that were obtained over the weekend staying various parts of the president's executive order, orders obtained by judges who sat on saturday night and sunday morning were done with nobody in the courtroom representing the government. steve: of course. ainsley: we wouldn't be going through this if the democrats didn't delay jeff sessions becoming attorney general. the lady was appointed --
4:06 am
sally gates was appointed by president obama. what's ironic here is jeff sessions grilled her about taking orders from the president. listen to this. >> you think the attorney general has a responsibility to say no to the president if he asks for something that's improper? a lot of people have defended the lynch nomination, for example, by saying well, he appoints somebody who is going to execute his views. what's wrong with that? but if the views of the president wants to execute are run lawful, should the attorney general or the deputy attorney general say no? >> senator, i believe that the attorney general or the deputy attorney general has an obligation to follow the law and the constitution and to give their independent legal advice to the president. >> good question and good answer. so what she should have done, instead of directing the justice department not to defend the president is to say to the white house, in my opinion, i can't do this. it's time for me to resign.
4:07 am
because the president is entitled to representation whether i agree or not. now, her conscience is clear and the president is not left unrepresented in federal court. brian: did she know this was coming, judge? did she know if i say i'm not going to back this decision is he going to back me? >> of course she must have known that because whatever you think of her politics she is a very intelligent person. steve: has she seen his tv show he fires everybody. >> who knows the way the justice department works. my initial reaction when i saw the email sent to the doj is he has to fire her. he has to fire her immediately. that simply can't be tolerated. ainsley: you know when you are releasing a statement like this i'm sure she called her husband if she is married and said guess what, honey, i'm about to get fired. you know if you go against the president on one of his major platform issues then you will be fired. steve: that would have been. >> defending the president and consistent with your own conscience. she didn't do that. steve: there is a story out
4:08 am
there apparently you justice department attorneys said we reviewed the orders and said we are fine with it and put it in front of her -- >> i saw her review and saw her denigration of that review. look, the orders were, in my view, lawful and constitutional. steve: so that means her actions were political. >> i don't know what motivated her. steve: well, it looks like her. >> look, she is obama appointee. she is not going to do a favor for donald trump. if she can't do what the president needs to have done, she has to step aside. if she won't step aside, she has to be fired and that's what happened. steve: judge, there are a lot of people like her in the administration, career diplomatics, people at the irs, at the e.p.a., people who are partisan. >> and president trump and his team will find who those people are and do what he has done. brian: the long everywhere they stay in place the more problem he is going to have in everything he does. >> we have in this country called the unified executive. everybody in the executive branch works for the president of the united states. they don't work for themselves. and if they can't work for
4:09 am
this president, they should go and he will be happy to replace them. brian: all right. let's talk about the supreme court justice nominee. i don't know if you have been following it at all. i know you are busy. [laughter] ainsley: tell us about all three of them. brian: who is it going to be? >> i don't know who it's going to be. i attempted to find out just the other day and was told, you know what? as close as i we are, i won't tell you hot person i was speaking. brian: it was melania. >> i'm not going to tell how it was. brian: okay. >> i think that the speculation in the media is probably fairly accurate. judge pryor, judge hardiman or judge gorsuch. steve: do you have a favorite? >> i don't. i think -- you know, in full disclosure, i was part of this process, not to discuss individuals but to discuss ideas and procedures and how you find the right person and what questions you ask. i think all three of those would fulfill the promises that president trump made when
4:10 am
he was running for office. steve: is there one of them that democrats would say, you know what? we are not going to filibuster that person? >> i don't know the answer to that. chuck schumer has said if any of these is not mainstream, we will filibuster that person. i don't know that what mainstream means to him. surely he doesn't think that president trump is going to nominate somebody like merrick garland or president obama's nominees. that's not what he was elected to do. we probably have a battle on our hands no matter of which the three. ainsley: no matter of which the three. but you will come back tomorrow to tell us about that individual. >> yes. steve: it's a date. brian: do you know what you are wearing? >> just what you are today. brian: okay. i will leave it out. steve: all right. i'm uncomfortable with that.

4:19 am
refugees will ever be let in this country under president trump. the syrian refugee ban is an indefinite pause and actually some of them might die because they don't have a place to go. >> now, remember, marie harf worked for secretary of state john kerry who, in 2013 urged u.s. military action to enforce that red line that president obama had talked about saying that if chemical weapons were used, and particularly in 2013 chemical weapons were used by syrian strong man assad that he would take u.s. military action, that it would change his calculus. president obama did not take that military action even at the urging of secretary kerry. even though he had made this promise, remember, in 2012, watch. >> we have communicated in no uncertain terms what every player in the region that that's a red line for us. and that there would be enormous consequences if we start seeing movement on the

meanwhile, newt gingrich, former speaker of the house, fox news contributor joins us now. newt, good morning to you. ainsley: good morning. >> good morning. steve: we just showed the picture of 41 out of the hospital, thankfully. there was something about the bush family, 41, 43, after they left office, they didn't bad mouth whoever came next as president of the united states, unlike the guy who just left 10 days ago, president obama, it took him nine days. he was quiet nine days and then yesterday he put out a statement regarding the immigration order by president trump saying this: president obama is heartened by the level of engagement taking place in communities around the country. this is exactly what we need -- expect to see when american values are at stake. newt, your comment about the former president criticizing the new president? >> well, look, i think there is a very different situation here. i think that the -- both president george h.w. bush and
4:35 am
president george w. bush felt that they owed it to the dignity of the office. they owed it to the unity of the country to step aside, to let the new guy have a shot of doing what he is doing. even if they disagreed deeply, they thought it was not the job of an expresident or former president to be engaged. obama is in a totally different place. the entire left is embattled. they are outraged. they are under siege. they are terrified, they don't know what to do. were so sure they were going to win that they're just totally disoriented and he is part of that general movement. so, president trump is going to be a very aggressive reformer. he has already proven that those reforms are going to drive the left crazy. and the truth is that president obama is part of the left. he is not a traditional president. he is a leading figure in a movement which is right now losing ground very rapidly. brian: you know what, newt? i have a different theory. i have a theory it actually hurts the cause for the former president to be out front because the democrats need
4:36 am
somebody else to step forward. as long as he dominates the spotlight, the democratic party suffers because is done. is he finished. he is through. >> i don't disagree with you but frankly as a republican, that makes me feel really good. i hope he talks out often and eats up most of the atmosphere and newer, younger people don't get a shot. i would be delighted to run against the elizabeth warren, george soros wing of the democratic party and have no new person emerge. ainsley: you know, mr. speaker, a lot of people are talking about this immigration order that it's such an inconvenience. what's your feeling about that? [laughter] >> i think that's a crazy word. you know, were people being killed in a nightclub in orlando inconvenient? were people being killed in san bernardino at a christmas party inconvenient? it really bothered me that chuck schumer could bring up a few tears for people not being
4:37 am
killed, not being shot, not being imprisoned, simply held at airport u that brought tears. 4,000 americans being shot over 700 killed in chicago, that didn't bring chuck schumer to tears. didn't bring rahm emanuel to tears. why is it that they put somehow the value of people who are not americans, who are refugees, who we have had testimony from the fbi and the intelligence director under obama by the way that there is a real danger of isis trying to sneak people in. and, president trump feels deeply that his first dude duty is to protect americans. that for liberal democrats, that's somehow doesn't ever seem to be their first duty. brian: in 2014 senator schumer said maybe we should have a pause on syrian refugees. actually bucking president obama on that. and that seemed kind of logical then. where is his heart with the cubans? 93 were stuck in mexico and being sent bake to that horrible nation run by that
4:38 am
horrible government? where is everyone's hearts broken? why aren't people's hearts being broken by that? >> well, i mean, you are making the point. look, the thing about the left wing is they own so much of the media and so much of hollywood, they get on emotional roller coasters. something as this week's hot story then they all feel deeply concerned about it until they forget it. and i think you are seeing that kind of effect right now. plus, remember, anything president trump does that the left can oppose, they're going to oppose. so what do you have? have you schumer who is blocking all the people that president trump needs to run the government, then complaining that the government is not being run as well as it should be without noticing that it's his blocking which is keeping those people from going to work. it's a very hypocritical position that schumer is in now. steve: also, newt, keep in mind, it's not like all this stuff came out of left field, donald trump ran for over a
4:39 am
year saying as soon as i take office i'm going to do this. as soon as i get there, boom. he is here, is he doing it and people are like what's he doing? my head is exploding. >> look, you are going to see exactly the same thing happen this evening. president trump is going to take one of the names that was on a list that he released back in the spring. this is not a surprise. i don't know which name it's going to be, but it ain't going to be a surprise. and chuck schumer is going to say oh, he is too far to the right for me. well, bologna. my view is that the democrats had better find enough votes to approve this guy or i think mitch mostly cloudy council will change the rules. ainsley: it reminds me of what he is happening with the sanctuary cities. look at kate steinle's city. the immigrants in this country aren't paying taxes have more rights than people arguing the right thing. this is our country. i don't understand why anyone is against just making sure the people who come across our border are good and decent people and aren't going to be terrorists.
4:40 am
>> well, and, look at mayor rahm emanuel's problem. he has had 4,000 people shot in the last year. radically more than -- americans than lost in iraq and afghanistan combined in the last year. and, yet, he is against the federal government picking up criminals when they get out of the chicago jail and getting them out of the country. now, how can emanuel argue that what chicago needs is more criminals on the street? i mean, you look at these and think there is something has happened with the left gotten totally out of touch with reality and somewhere out around pluto. [laughter] and you can't figure what's -- you know, what's their reasoning? i mean, how can they get. ainsley: i don't know. >> how can they get to this point? ainsley: it's the president's job. it's in the constitution it's the president's job to keep our country safe. steve: newt, thank you very much for being with us today's. heather: 40 minutes after the hour and we have got a couple headlines that we are going to check out right now.

you. ainsley: the physician mom group is online group set up to bring mothers who are also doctors together to share advice and expertise. but, after this last election, things got really ugly the forum turned into bullying ground for liberals to bash their conservative peers. one of the women who watched this unfold is radiologist. you know her. she is on fox quite often her name is dr. nicole saphier. >> good morning. ainsley: so what happened after the election when you went on this site? 65,000 members. >> right. so i had the privilege of
4:53 am
being a part of an amazing group. it was the two inclusive criteria you have to be a mother and you also have to be a doctor. imagine the diversity that we had across this group. over 65,000 women were a part of this. and everyone came together. there was a wonderful camaraderie, a privilege to be a part of this. after the election i watched as a silent bystander. i started seeing some propaganda, rhetoric going back and forth that turned a bit abusive. whether you are far right. far left, far side of the moon. that extremism has no place in the professional women's physician group. ainsley: the group was supposed to be a political. you weren't allowed to the talk about politics. let me read the posts that. so liberal physician moms were writing. this one says trump is the anti-cyst to christ. i'm not saying republicans are racists. i'm saying people who still support trump are another one says to all those conservatives who cried tyranny every time obama proposed legislation, gave a
4:54 am
speech or even walked across the south lawn. guess what you dumb blank asked for it and you got it this is what real tyranny looks like. so the person who founded this site who said these are the rules, you can't talk about politics, what is that physician mom saying now? >> so i didn't actually see those quotes but i did see a lot coming from both sides, similar to that. what i did notice that was happening was a lot of those conservatives that were posting, they were actually being removed from the group. their posts were being deleted where a lot of them were left wing, more liberal posts, they are remaining. it wasn't even you had to be conservative to get kicked out. i was seeing posts questioning some the current movements that these people were also being removed from the site. ainsley: what does this have to do with raising your kids and being a doctor is my question. they did kick out one conservative. this was the response from the site. you have been removed from pmg for calling democrats sore losers. we have asked that all political posts not are
4:55 am
marginalized or bashing any member or candidate. tossing the other side for being a sore loser isn't promoting discussion but rather adding to division. yet, they were okay with the liberal folks on this site bashing conservatives. >> so i respectfully recused myself from the site after i had fought some of this bullying and verbal abuse going back and forth. the truth is plightness and gooplight --politeness and manno never go out of style. we are doing it to our selves. we are doing a pretty good job at it. the same intolerance that people are marching against in the streets is the same intolerance that is just exploding this physician's group. ains ansz that's a great point. thank you for being with us and telling the story. why did you tell the story? why was it important for you? >> i think it's important to maintain professionalism, to remember who we're. we are strong women. we're intelligent. we are educated and we can be diverse. everyone can believe the same thing but have you to respect your piers. if you can't respect your piers, how are you going to give bipartisan and great care

5:02 am
historians were on television last night supposedly drawing parallels to the saturday night massacre from -- steve: with watergate? >> watergate. now, get this. get this. we had people actually saying that the deputy attorney general and the attorney general in 1973 reducing to fire on president nixon's orders the special prosecutor who was investigating the watergate case. trying to get the watergate case released and proceeding against nixon. they're reducing to fire a special prosecutor in resigning was like the president of the united states firing the acting attorney general sally yates who refused to carry out a both lawful and constitutional move by the president and his administration. let me just say for everybody watching. there are no parallels to what happened in october 1973 now,
5:03 am
they both involved washington. that's about it. >> guys, this is the most facile and pathetic attempt at both revisiting history and tarring the trump administration. there is no parallel. ainsley: and she was appointed by president obama. the guys in the nixon thing, they were appointed by nixon, just weren't willing to go by watergate. she was appointed by a democratic president who doesn't agree with the president now. >> allen, who is no conservative, liberal legal scholar said last night she was basically practicing political hero stuff. she knew she was going to be leaving as the role of acting attorney general, she wanted to be the political hero of the moment, or at least that's the way it appeared. but there is no parallel for all of you headline history people out there, there is no parallel between what happened with richard nixon and what happened last night. that's the first thing i want to say.
5:04 am
brian: was some of the fallout with this friday executive order, was it preventable? >> i think you raise an excellent point. there are two separate issues here. both the legality and the constitutionality of what the trump team did last friday. that is not in question. 8 usc section 1182f gives the president this type of authority to make this type of decision on immigration for the good of the country. he has that authority. congress also is vested with its own legislative powers over legislation. he has no constitutional or statutory impediment to do what he did. however, this could have been rolled out and maybe telegraphed in a better way, and i think it could have been. it doesn't mean you have to announce to the world what they were doing. but i think it was important for the trump team to understand they are going to be at war with the media
5:05 am
likely and the democrats and some of the republican party every day that they are doing what they said they were going to do on the campaign trail. every day it's going to be war. so if you know you're going to be at war, how do you roll out something that you know is going to be deemed to be a muslim ban, even though it's not. deemed to be unconstitutional, even though it's not, deemed to be hateful even though in their view it's very practical? so you have to produce the preface and the preproduction of this. it has to be done i think really carefully and really smartly. i think they could have done better on that. steve: and the media double standard is what you would expect. keep in mind, there were 109 people in transit, and they were the ones who were temporary detained. okay. so 109 versus 91 cubans who two days before the inauguration were sent back to
5:06 am
cuba by barack obama's administration. but the left -- you know, the mainstream media, no word about that. >> yeah. that's one of the things, you know, if i were helping out on communication, that's one of the things that i would point to. both the cubans that were sent home and the 8 -- what is it? 12 or 72 refugees that obama brought in wednesday before he left office. you've got to talk specifically about what the refugee program means to the country. what it -- the positives, you know, values that we take in from immigrants and refugees, frankly, and the difficulty we have with some countries in doing the type of vetting we need to be done. especially with the radicalization that's now happening on the internet. it's a different world than it was 10, 20, 30 years ago with how we look at refugees coming into the united states. ainsley: yeah, and it's a different united states president trump. >> right. ainsley: president obama doesn't like it. he's making that crystal clear
5:07 am
just nine or ten days after the current president took office. he wrote president obama is heartened by the level of engagement taking place in communities around the country. this is exactly what we expect to see when american values are at state. what's your reaction? >> yeah. american values. controlling your own immigration. controlling your borders. ensuring the safety of the american public. last time i checked, those are american values. doesn't surprise me at all. remember, when barack obama left office, guys, he made it clear to the activists and the democrat hard-core base, it was up to them to carry on the community activism and the community organizing that he began early on in his post-harvard law school career. and, you know, he gave a nod to it. and he said the fight is now yours. but i'll be back if i see things that are happening for what are shared values. it depends on what your perspective is. i think there are a lot of americans who are glad that we
5:08 am
have a president who is taking immigration and the refugee in a program really seriously. brian: laura, in your opinion, does some of these emotion we saw after donald trump won in new york city and other major cities, the outrage, some of the things at the airports we watched over the weekend, is the left giving birth to their own version of the tea party? >> i think they're trying to. i think the problem here is both on the constitution and the statutory level. they're in the wrong. and courts are not going to be able to continue to put these days into place when the trump administration is right on the merits. you can argue whether they're doing the best that they can on the communications and messaging side. but on the merits as what they're doing, liberal scholars like jonathan turley, george twillger from the george h.w. bush administration, all of them said the president is well within his right to do what he did over the past ten days on this immigration stuff. he said he was going to do
5:09 am
this. steve: yep. >> and he's doing it. but the message i think can be a lot more positive and not quite so at times negative, and i think we could bring people along to understanding what exactly they're doing and how they're doing it in a more better way. steve: they're only ten days into it. tonight, just about ten hours from now, the president of the united states will be in the east room. he's going to announce his nomination pick for the supreme court. but, you know, the democrats are already bracing for a fight. there's a senator from the great state of oregon who said unless it's merrick garland, i'm going to filibuster the guy or the gal. >> yeah. part of the on going resistance. steve: the party you know. >> yeah. it's part of the resistance. it's to get the american people understand why you're doing certain things. whether it's the immigration pause, the refugee pause, or whether this particular nominee is best suited for this presidency and this court.
5:10 am
i think it's going to be very important. the inside track seems to be with todd har hardman from the third circuit, i've had the privilege to be with him. he's a terrific person. he has impeccable credentials. neil also someone, some conservatives have concerns about him, he was a retired justice and was loaned to the kennedy chambers and then of course bill prior down in alabama. i think a conservative favorite. he might not be in that final three at this point. but they could surprise us, but it could be either one of the three. ainsley: they look at anything. brian: but they'll let anybody clerk for a supreme court justice right, laura? >> yeah. i slipped in under the radar. i was lucky. brian: laura, thanks so much. we really wore you out today. thank you so much for your

5:18 am
had the job for ten days. how is it his fault? >> well, former obama administration officials are actually making the case that because of this refugee executive order, people are going to die in syria because of president trump. but think back to what happened under former president obama's watch. he went out there in 2012 in the middle of that presidential campaign and at a white house news conference insisted he would do something about syria if, in fact, chemical weapons were used by the dictator assad. here was his vow. >> we have communicated in no uncertain terms with every player in the region that that's a red line for us and there would be enormous consequences if we start seeing movement on the chemical weapons front or the use of chemical weapons. >> that red line was crossed a few months later in 2013. there was a massive chemical weapons attack.
5:19 am
you can see some of the aftermath there in the video, including -- wait for it -- 400 children. at least 400 children killed in that chemical weapons attack. that led then secretary of state john kerry among others to say that there needed to be u.s. military action. if president obama did not go through with it. and now we have one of kerry's former spokespeople saying it's president trump who is going to have people dying in syria because of this executive order. here's what she said. >> i don't know that syrian refugees will ever be let into this country under president trump. the syrian refugee ban is a indefinite pause and actually some of them might die because they don't have a place to go. >> people may die in syria. so now former obama officials are speaking out saying president trump needs to do something when over the last eight years we saw very little action, guys,. brian: yeah, this entire mess was happening because of a lack of action including the

isis battle in mosul right now. this whole entire thing has been put upon donald trump by the previous administration and now it's his problem that there are so many refugees out there. saudi arabia stepped up and said we'll provide some money to help you set up some safe zones, but i don't think anyone's gotten that word out. >> right. donald trump is taking criticism from fellow republicans. some on the hill, some maybe even in his own cabinet about this executive order. there are going to have to be tweaks. but the reasonable doubt that people are dying in syria because of president trump, a bit of a stretch, guys. ainsley: and why do they get to that point? if they're at the point of death, who got them there? >> good to see you guys. steve: you bet. coming up senator schumer in new york reduced to tears apparently over the president's executive action. >> it was mean-spirited and un-american. steve: so is it really un-american to keep people safe? we're going to talk to a father whose son was murdered

steve: we have quick tuesday morning headlines for you. first up, thousands of google employees worldwide protesting our president by cutting their workday short. many of them to walk off the job to walk around silicon valley headquarters. creating their own #googlersunite. google has created a 4 million-dollar fund to help refugees in the united states with legal help if they need it. and cincinnati now the latest city to defy president trump promising to protect illegals. the mayor there john cranially declaring his city a sanctuary even calling that a badge of honor.
5:25 am
all right. ainsley, over to you. ainsley: thanks, steve. the left is still hammering president trump over his tough immigration policies. >> there's so many things wrong with this order. this is an outrage. >> it is reckless. it is reckless and rash. >> it is unconstitutional. >> mean-spirited and un-american. ainsley: but try telling that to jamiele whose teenage son was gunned down by a illegal immigrant. he joins us now from los angeles. thank you so much for joining us. >> thank you for inviting me. ainsley: you're welcome. first of all, for the folks at home that don't know the story about your son, tell us what happened. >> march the 2nd, 2008, he was coming home from the mall, i had just called him on the phone to see where he was at. he said he was right around the corner and a couple of minutes later, i heard two
5:26 am
gunshots, come outside, he was laying in the street in a pool of blood dead. you know, illegal alien. illegal alien. ainsley: an illegal alien was responsible for it. tell us about him. >> yeah. illegal alien. he was an 18th street gang member on his third gun charge. he was released from the county jail within 24 hours killing my son. nobody called ice. he had already had a deportation hold on him in santa clara county they didn't honor, so he came here and started doing the same thing. instead of deporting him, they just let him out like he was a ymca camp, and he murdered my son the same day he got out. ainsley: now your life will never be the same. i can't imagine the pain you're going through. so why did you support president trump? why were you on the campaign trail with him? >> yeah. because trump said he was going to -- he didn't like what happened. when i told him what happened to my son, i could tell that it hurt him, and he didn't want it to happen to anybody. and i believe that he was going to do something, you know?
5:27 am
i trusted that he was going to do something, and he came through. he came through. i'm happy that he's doing it. now we have to enforce it. you have all of these people fighting against him, so he has a set of precedent and come out hard. ainsley: yeah, he actually listened to you. what was your reaction to what he's doing? we're going to ban anyone coming over here for the next three months coming from those seven countries. what's your response? >> you know, that's good. americans first. what about us? our kids, our family members are being murdered, and they're protecting and their siding with the bad people. all we want to do is go after the bad ones. they want to put them in a bag and say what about the rest of them? let's deal with the bad ones. the criminals. the worst ones. we can all come together on that, that's what we thought. ainsley: jamile, there's a lawmaker committed by illegals
5:28 am
to sue the government. >> yeah. it would hold them accountable, to make them scared for the stuff they're doing. we were trying to sue sheriff baca, even he was the one who directly did it. the police chief out here and the sheriff's department, they don't want to do nothing to protect us. so that will hold them accountable because it will make them do their job. ainsley: so what's your message to chuck schumer when you see him crying because he thinks that these refugees should have more rights than americans? >> you know, it's like trump said, that was so fake. i've been to funerals, candlelight vigils, you want to see real crying and hurt people, why don't you show up there, you know? i know a lot of parents who cry every day, including myself. that's all we do is think about our loved ones and to see him crying for terrorists and people who we don't even know who they are when he has americans here that he gives us no support? you know, i could care less about chuck schumer.
5:29 am
ainsley: jamiel, thank you for being with us. god bless you. >> thank you. ainsley: coming up, the mainstream media calling the firing of the attorney general a monday night massacre. a massacre. really? used to work for mainstream media. he's next. with every early morning... every late night... and moment away... with every and paycheck... you've earned your medicare. it was a deal that was made long ago, and aarp believes it should be honored. thankfully, president trump does too.

5:34 am
do you sing a folk song? >> we do have music in the studio. it's not 1965 again. these are real adult issues that people should be discussing in detail. if you disagree, explain why. but instead these are morons and demagogues. here's the problem, though. the pressure, the social pressure in the country is rising to a level that is unhealthy. i mean, you don't -- you want to challenge the system, you don't want to break the system. and you do sort of hope that both sides deaccelerate because things are getting to a level of histe hysteria that's not healthy. steve: whoever they rented that system from, i hope they're getting a refund today. after that video was televised, donald trump this morning got out his twitter machine and wrote this. nancy pelosi and -- here's a new name. fake tears chuck schumer held a rally at the steps of the supreme court and mic did not work. a mess just like the democratic party. and then nancy pelosi
5:35 am
spokesperson responded. ainsley: the mic briefly didn't work. but this thin-skinned president clearly heard the voices of the more than 250 members of congress and thousands of others who gathered outside the supreme court last night. the president's immoral executive order is clearly institutional no matter how many times he tweets or how many administration officials he fires. tucker. >> yeah. i mean, it's neither immoral nor constitutional. i think you can make a solid and defendable case for why he's acting in the best interest of the country. but there's another component to this, which is you have to explain things to people. and twitter's not the way to do that. a speech is the way to do that, articulate spokesman is the way to do that. if you make the case slowly and calmly, i think you win over a large majority of the country because fundamentally the u.s. does have a right to control who comes here and act in its own interest and the president has a responsibility to protect the population of the country. but if things get so crazy and if people start saying things
5:36 am
that are so irresponsible, it drowns out those points. so you really need to calm people a little bit. that's part of the job. and so while i'm totally in favor of the themes behind this because i think they're right, and i think they help america, i also think the administration has an obligation to speak in a way that people can hear. brian: right, and i think we're going to see that when we get a secretary of state and general, they're going to get people in the process. and, look, it wasn't executed well, it wasn't communicated well, it was signed and implemented, and a matter of time people started and all hell broke loose. but i assume when they get people in place, it will get better and when the obama people are moved out, they will have more loyalists amongst them. meanwhile, let's talk about what's going on with the refugees. now all of a sudden donald trump is getting -- now it's his problem that there are refugees in syria that want to come here. we all knew that president obama was the one responsible for this crisis that is flooding europe, changing europe, changing
5:37 am
sweden, and we're trying to prevent it from happening here. >> it's destroying a lot of western europe and scandinavia as you know. so the core question is how do you prevent that from happening here? i mean, for 50 years, there's been this experiment going on across the ocean with trying to assimilate large groups of people from the middle east, and i don't think anyone would argue that it works. and, by the way, it has produced a massive political backlash. in first place in polling this morning as of the french election. that's a response to a terrible and disablizing practice in france. nobody wants that. what i'm so struck by is if you press the opponents of the executive order and say why are you exactly against this? if you keep pressing, they say america is immoral and has an immoral history. well, the truth is the united states has let in more people voluntarily
5:38 am
than any other country in the history the have of the world. the u.s. has done a lot and yet somehow people under 30 i think haven't learned that, they've learned only the sad parts of american history. so this is almost punishment for america's sins. that's almost a grotesque argument, i think. ainsley: you had a guy on your show last night, mark, who said if we don't bring these refugees in and don't allow them here into our country, there will be another holocaust. listen. >> you're saying that the holocaust because of american immigration? >> no. i'm not saying that at all. >> okay. >> because hundreds of thousands of americans died fighting the nazis. >> absolutely but what did happen is america turned its back on refugees during that period just like we're turning our back on refugees right now. we're not responsible for the crisis in syria, but we do have some responsibility to protect the refugees who are fleeing for their lives. ainsley: what's your response? >> well, i mean, that is partly true but misleading. the united states did turn
5:39 am
away people fleeing europe in some number. but it also defeated the nazis, you know? at great expense. so millions of americans traveled across the ocean to a country not theirs and a war not theirs and hundreds of thousands died and countless more injured and had their lives interrupted for the sake of ending fascism. so that's something that we ought to be proud of. but to flip it around, and i think most americans are proud of it, and to say because america made a mistake 70 years ago, we have an obligation to bring in syrian refugees against interest i mean, is insane. and actually, it's an insult to all those americans who died doing the right thing. steve: of course, we started the conversation talking about the immigration pause that the president has installed for the next 87 days or so. >> right. steve: of course currently the top law officer of the country aside from the president is the attorney general.
5:40 am
sally yates came out very publicly yesterday and said, look, i don't think this thing is legal. she's a holdover from the obama administration. looks like she's a partisan as well. but now the mainstream media has hopped on this, tucker, and calling this a monday night massacre. now, i think we're all old enough to remember the saturday night the massacre, and this isn't anything like it. >> well, it's different on a bunch of different levels because at its core, there's not a legal debate here. who, by the way, was kept on by the trump administration, and i think it's why. >> that was a mistake. >> yeah. clearly. from their perspective. but there's not a legal debate, again, at the center of this. so if you read what sally yates said, she said basically this is wrong, i don't agree with it, it's immoral, it's bad, and therefore i'm not going to defend it. not really -- you know, that's fine but that's not really her job. her job is to interpret the law against the constitution, legal requirements and evaluate whether, you know, an order like this is legal. and she didn't really do that.
5:41 am
and so she's acting outside of her job description. >> she went rogue. >> well, a little bit. she's allowed to have that opinion. but as acting attorney general, she should evaluate whether it's legal or not, and i don't think she did that. brian: and of course that had to change your show. no one think so when these firings happen, it changes your show. >> what affect is it going to have on cable news? that's a fair question. brian: how does it affect tucker? and overall lately you've been saying ainsley is your favorite. has anything changed. ainsley: nope. sorry, brian. brian: on fox and friends? >> you know, a lot changes in this world, brian but some facts are immutable, they're in stone and ainsley being my favorite is one of them. steve: they work together the weekends for many, many years. brian: when they were kids. steve: all right. brian: tucker, thank you, we'll be watching tonight. >> thanks, guys. ainsley: coming up vetting refugees is a great start but what are we doing about refugees who refuse to assimilate? steve: good question. >> the islamic schools here in
5:42 am
minnesota, they teach sharia law? >> yeah. they stich sharia law. articulate has do they also teach the american constitution? >> actually, i have no idea about that one. ainsley: well, great. the issue up close and personal is from that area. he's going to chat about that one coming up next. when did mixing food, with not food, become food? thankfully at panera, 100% of our food is 100% clean. no artificial preservatives, sweeteners, flavors, or colors. panera. food as it should be.

5:47 am
ago, and i traveled there and went in there to talk to folks and find out why there was an enclave and not as much assimilation. this is what folks on the street had to say. >> you go there, and you find out someone has been there for 20 years and he or she doesn't speak a single word with english because they don't interact with people outside that circle. it creates an environment where the lone wolf is going to be easier to hide in. >> is radicalization still going on right now? are somalia youths still being recruited by isis as we speak? >> yes. >> the islamic schools here in minnesota, they teach sharia law? >> yeah. sharia law. >> do they teach also american law, the u.s. constitution? >> actually, i have no idea about that one. steve: oh, my goodness. that's one of the scariest sound bites i've ever heard. when you come to the united states and the whole idea of assimilation is to become more american but if you don't learn the language, you don't learn the history, you don't get a job, you don't assimilate. >> well, that's exactly
5:48 am
right. and somalia's one of the countries on the list that donald trump put out of this temporary ban. listen, these are people coming from intolerant countries where women and gays are persecuted coming to tolerant countries like western europe or the united states. if they don't assimilate to the idea of america, america is not a race or a gender or a creed, it is an idea around founding values. if they don't learn english, if they're not taught in american schools about the constitution and why this country is special, then why should web surprised that they're seduced by radical islam? they're seduced by mosques that teach sharia law and then backlash against this culture and our country and here at home? that's why the next step to vetting is allegiance and we're not doing it in our schools. this is a press tube for spanish or another language. and it starts back at the basics. whether they believe in america and once they're here, we ask them to invest in
5:49 am
america and become part of the fabric of our country. this is a pretty simple construct. nothing racist about it. it's called americanism. steve: sure, and you made it clear why assimilation is important. but you mentioned allegiance. how would you like to see them pledge allegiance to their new country? >> how about say pledge of allegiance in our public school classes every day? which we no longer do. and your local principal every day anymore? or whether they say under god? or tell kids to take a knee for the national anthem that america has been a beacon in the world where anyone can practice their faith and not be persecuted unlike the countries iraq, syria, pakistan, somalia where they're coming from. america's a special place. we need to remind our youth because if we don't and new immigrants, we're going to lose our country and that's what trump's speaking to. steve: great point, pete, but i think some liberal heads just exploded throughout america. are you happy? >> i'm very happy, steve. that's my goal.
5:50 am
steve: there were, steve, thank you very much. we'll see you later. good job. >> thank you. steve: do you remember when brian went head-to-head with boxing champ? brian: are you serious? >> yeah. go ahead. steve: i remember that. now he's in the fox and friends ring and current ibf heavy weight champion joshua. talking to us about the next big fight coming up next. but first with you're coming up in ten minutes. >> i thought you were going to say putin. vladimir putin. steve, good morning. another stacked day. we're waiting on the name of the u.s. supreme court, we're waiting on the committees, will they approve more cabinet members today? how is this obama versus trump thing going to go? shannon is live at the supreme court. i will hold court here in new york city, and we'll see all of you ten minutes away top of the hour. campbell's one dish recipes.

of us sparring and show you some weaknesses. i'm going to fight very similar to you. so watch when i land right after right after left, but you can see he has a reach advantage. but besides that, have you watched anything watching me spar that will help you retain your title? >> main best not to get hit. that's what i see there because the result of you standing in the way of his punches was knocked down. brian: so your goal is not to get hit and your goal is to hit him. something has to give. >> interesting. that's the goal of myself, i've been in this sport 26 years and actually what floyd mayweather strategy is not to get hit. and some people say it's boring. on one hand, it's about sweet science and big time boxing. so we have on 29th of april, we'll have a big time boxing stadium. brian: for the championship of the world. the world. best of luck april 29th. we'll watch. price...
