july speech by the president be my country tis of me? >> honorable not the values of declaration of independence but the power of the military. this, must be said, the grand during of donald j. trump's personal self- >> this is not his military and personal general's. >> kind of military display we were used to see from the soviet union on red square on may day. >> fourth of july is supposed to be our country not the ego of the president. >> is he spending it on boosting his ego with a parade that's fundamentally about him. >> i don't think he understand this is america's birthday not his birthday. jedediah: cranky. pete beat did they miss the well-played images of eisenhower with tanks. ed: jfk and his inaugural. pete: 243 years since a bunch of folks with rifles took on the greatest empire on the world because they wanted to live free and govern themselves and give america an experiment. president trump believes we

3:09 am
political points. called salute to america as a reminder. i don't understand the point oh president trump thinks its his birthday it's not ode to president trump. he happens to be the commander-in-chief and it's independence day and salute to america. who better to make that salute than the commander-in-chief. pete: he has george washington's job. you actually think back. that is the job that donald trump currently has today. fly that flag big and proud. whether it has 50 stars or 13-ton in a circle. ed: think about what happened on the eve of this holiday with nike pulling sneakers with betsy ross flag. turns out president obama his inauguration. you see speakers there. there is the betsy ross flag. pete: i want a pair of those so bad. ed: look at the obama inaugural in 2000 -89s. a whole host of flag. at least one of them right up there on the capitol. jedediah: two of them on either side.
3:10 am
ed: 2013 inaugural as well. if it was good enough for barack obama's inaugurals, both of them, how is it now all of a sudden this racist, awful symbol if for the obama and previous inaugurals and the ones that come after this flag is flying proudly. jedediah: selective outrage. same thing going on with the border when you see borders resurfacing from 2014 of the same processing centers. now all of a sudden there is this outrage from the media. i understand you don't like president trump. have you made that abundantly clear. your selective outrage shows consistently on these issues when the very same things that happened before didn't seem to bother you at all. now suddenly you are going crazy over all of it. ed: if it was a cage during obama years. it was okay. anything connected to president trump you are outraged. pete: betsy ross was an abolitionist. can we talk about that for a second? she designed the first flag for our country as our
3:11 am
country. she didn't own slaves. she was a quaker who was abolitionist. ed: she was bringing people together. pete: she was bringing people together which that flag has done since our inception. ceo of nike. will colin kaepernick which he is at this point. too far. ed: they are getting not behind the flag. not behind patriotism. behind nike, watch. >> see that and my hope is that they didn't just do it to do it that they understand the significance there. and, look, there are a lot of things in our history that are still very painful. >> at the time that we seek to repair the damage done following the legacy of slavery and segregation and jim crow. i think it's important to take into account the impression that that kind of symbol would have for many of our fellow americans and so respect the decision that

3:50 am
became what we know as the first. >> absolutely. yeah. as you know, the congress said that there would be 13 stars representing a new constellation. it didn't specify what the pattern would be. so the pattern that is associated with betsy ross' circle of 13 stars we think was actually inspired by currency, paper money designed by benjamin franklin which was a circle with links of a chain, each one representing a state with the motto we are one, which is a wonderful sentiment for fourth of july. jillian: representing the 13 colonies. behind me here is the betsy ross house. old city philadelphia. this is the most historic square mile in all of america by the way. this is a part of it. it is believed that betsy ross lived in this area possibly in this county. some believe it was a couple down. betsy ross 1776 to 1779 she wented that's where she had her upholstery shop. take a look across the street, do you see that massive american flag that is humphrey's flag company.
3:51 am
that's been around for at least 150 years. we actually spoke to a gentleman who is a part owner here in this company. and take a listen to what he had to say about their sales that have skyrocketed over the last 24 hours. >> in our 150-year history, we have sold more betsy rosses than ever. >> jillian: why do you think that is? >> definitely because of the nike thing. the betsy ross flag is the original flag of the united states. and there is no reason that you shouldn't fly that flag. and it's ridiculous to assign some other, you know, political -- whatever to it. jillian: okay. so he said on a normal day they sell about 30 of the betsy ross flags. he said yesterday they sold about 1,000. he said people want to get their hands on them. so, look, you have people who are arguing against this. you have people who want that flag. they want to hold on to it for that sense of pride.
3:52 am
it's kind of interesting to hear that coming from a store that's been around for 150 years. scott, real quick before we go. the museum down the block, lots of fourth of july festivities, right? >> museum of the american revolution. we actually have a display of 40, 13-star american flags produced over a century and a half. jillian: love it. thank you very much for joining it. i appreciate it? >> a pleasure. jillian: send it back to you. ed: thanks for the history lesson. i love it. happy fourth. a veteran owned clothing company outraged by nikey's move is firing back release of a betsy ross flag t-shirt you see right there. jedediah: u.s. army vet tyler merritt. welcome. >> good morning. >> thank you so much for having me. jillian: you gave me this t-shirt which i love by the way. very popular t-shirt right now. what was your inspiration to do this? >> symbolism like we were talking about before. this is the 1 original cyclones this is when we decided to break away from tyranny and oppression of england. we came together, a diverse group of individuals came
3:53 am
together for the common good of creating this great nation. and now nike is using this symbolism as a negative term. and we divided to put victory on there because a lot of people don't know because in greek mythology nike was wing goddess that presided over a battlefield tone sure victory. i would like to hope that after all of this controversy and everyone has this discussion that we're victorious that this is a symbol of america's greatness. pete: why are we allowing this instead to be a symbol of our not so greatness or divisiveness? >> for whatever reason, nike has allowed colin kaepernick to be their moral guide. and i don't know how this came about. i would equate collin to the teenage kid in his grandmother's basement tweeting out offensive things but having no intention of coming on stage and talking to you or talking to you about why he has decided to make this divisive message. because he took the knee during the national anthem
3:54 am
very, very disrespectful, in my opinion. but he said it's nothing to do with the flag. i respect the flag. and then fast forward later, controversy dwindles down maybe the bank account is running low. and he came up with this great tweet. ed: he also did not serve this country with the flag on his shoulder. you did. >> absolutely. ed: what does that mean to you. >> it means a lot. when you talk about that flag and people dessays creatdesdesecrateit. it makes the hair on my arm stand up. we have talked about it before. 's it the equivalent of the jewish individual and swastika as a veteran if someone takes that flag draped over a casket and sets it on fire does anything other than pay respect to it. jedediah: tell us about your company you have raised $1.5 million. where do the proceeds go from these t-shirts. >> as of yesterday we sold about 20,000 of those designs.
3:55 am
jedediah: wow. >> what we have been able to do grow from my garage to over 200 u.s.a. employees. all of these shirts are made in the u.s. nike does not make their products in the u.s. our proceeds go back into the community. they go back into employment. we are able to take a large portion of our funds and fund our nonprofit initiative for the veterans village. we build tiny homes for severely wounded and for homeless veterans. pete: it's cool when you are out and about. i see your shirts everyone. guys and girls wear nine line. spreading patriotism by what you wear. >> patriotism can be cool again. we have to get over this nonsense. ed: we have patriotic viewers by the way want to know how to get these. >> nine line apparel.com. we put a very special fox 20 out there. ed: a little discount? what's the specific of nine line. >> in the military nine line is a call when someone is injured they call someone like me into pull them off
3:56 am
the battlefield. and our context we like to say we are a call-to-action. it becomes a conversation starter of what does that mean? and we have that. difference between those who served and those who have not. there is that gap, that divides. we are trying to close that. pete: i used to have the nine line medevac memorized i think the last line is nbc. nuclear biological and chemical. never used it but i had it right here. thanks a lot. appreciate it, brother. jedediah: thank you for your service. ed: absolutely. pete: great stuff. president trump's america salute to america. we are live on the national mall coming up next. ed: check back with anna and rick live from patriots point, south carolina. look how beautiful that is ♪ it's a party, party ♪ over the last 24 hours,

4:04 am
presidential field, they are pretty much universally panning it. listen to. this to prop up a presidential ego is not reflecting well on our country. it's not a show of strength. it's a show of insecurity. >> boosting his ego with a parade that's fundamentally about him. >> i don't think he understands this is america's birthday not his birthday. pete: wha griff: what you are looking at trying to give you a little bit of perspective on the clouds. low clouds already seen here. it's going to be at least 12 hours before we have any flyover though we don't have the exact time. some time coinciding around when the president does. we are hearing from pentagon producer lucas tomlinson there could be weather effecting particularly the flyovers if they don't have the cloud ceiling that they need. particularly for things like blue angels to fly over. guys? pete: griff, thanks a lot. we will be watching our national mall. ed: live on the fox news channel this afternoon. pete: checking the papers morning. of course, the "new york post" as they would do on a
4:05 am
day like this, fittingly, america the beautiful with the betsy ross flag. i pulled up my flailing "new york times" on the cover you have got iceland is melting. so apparently that's the big story today. in the column on the side the headline is a new salute for the fourth starring trump. of course he wants to make this about a salute to america. everyone else is making it about him. ed: i feel like it's appropriate that you are barbecuing the "new york times" today. >> i might use this in bye my bonfire this evening. iceland the fourth of july. jedediah: rush limbaugh comes out and says freedom scares the left. take a listen. >> the left wants equal time on independence -- they want equal time to make their case on the day celebrating independence day essentially. well, i mean, that's what it means that they're upset that trump is having this gigantic celebration of american independence day. they don't think it ought to
4:06 am
happen. what will be on display at trump's joy u joyous day bash tonight will be celebration of freedom. which is the real threat they face. freedom is the problem. self-reliant people are a great threat. ed: yeah. pete: bingo. jedediah: that's a great point though. when you look at progressive policies. they are all about giving that power to the government and taking that power away from people. this is a day when you are celebrating people's freedom. you are celebrating their second amendment rights. celebrating everything that makes this country great. all of those policies that hard left progressives are putting out would change. they would threaten potentially all. that's a great point by rush limbaugh. pete: second amendment rights they are not celebrating those. they are trying to take them away. you know i'm a journalist. no i'm not really at all. i have got to get it right it wasn't ice land, it was greenland. i'm so sorry i feel like that's some sort of cultural appropriation. i don't know what i was doing.

you. pete: another big story building up all week long border patrol agents having to defend themselves against some really nasty accusations from the left. remember, the border patrol has a special trauma unit that actually goes in to try to help people. medical problems. people out who have crossed the border illegally. they have gone miles into the country. they are without water. it wasn't the border patrol's fault that they decided to go and do that and try to help them. try to help their children. the left you have got aoc ands or attacking them on and on and on. one of those leaders from the tucson sector border patrol, the chief there pushed back and talked about just what they're doing to try to help families. watch. >> diapers. baby wipes, clothing for children. baby formula. crackers. raisins. tuna fish. toothbrush preloaded with
4:08 am
toothpaste. available to everyone in they want more than one. >> water cooler. there is water -- this is a combination toilet, sink and the sink provides fresh water. there is nothing wrong with this water. we are not forcing aliens to drink out of toilet. ed: remember alexandria ocasio-cortez the congresswoman claiming people were forced to drink out of the toilet. pals tores were there on tours said they didn't see anything like that. now you see border patrol officials say you know what? i will drink the water. you may have misunderstood there is a toilet right by the sink. they are trying to be humane to the people. jedediah: no question overcrowded. we know that. that's why many have been fighting for border security and fighting for stuff prevent this influx of people. these processing centers can't sustain it? what i love about folks on the left they are very critical of the centers. they don't want to do anything to prevent this problem. ed: aoc voted against the 4
4:09 am
or $5 billion to go and help these people. pete: they are not funding what would be required to fix it. also she also called it a creamp which is concentration camps i havener seen oni havenever seeno run through a creamp for a better life: quickly built or refitted detention centers, just tell them not to come. all problems solved. this is a volume problem. this is an asylum problem where the people are attracted to come to our country. the border patrol is doing the best they can. jedediah: also very exhausting to watch these people on the front lines doing they the best they can. put a video out and say listen, this is actually what's going on. it's really infuriating that they have been under attack and vilified so long for just doing their job. democrats should take a minute to think about that. there is enormous problem
4:10 am
with overcrowding. they are doing the best they can. they want to protect our national security. they want to ensure humanitarian rights for people. they can only do so much. you need to help them. if you are complaining about it. you are in congress, do something about it. pete: i hope we have it. i usually listen to producers in this case i'm not going to do. we need to replay the robert clip. she stumbled on the reality that border patrol agents are facing on the border. here is what she said. >> i can tell you also the agents that have taken me aside were imploring me to please report back what's happening here because they don't want any part of it anymore. and they do actually feel like it's making us less safe because they are not at the border. they are there, in their eyes, they are not social workers. they are not supposed to be watching over a 4-year-old. some 9 and 10-year-olds. these are not agents that are eequipped to taking care of them and throwing money at it is not going to fix it. pete: highly critical of the president but admits ultimately they are doing what they can.
4:11 am
ed: border is less secure because the people who are supposed to secure the border are going and acting like social workers which she admits they are not supposed to do. jedediah: do your job, congress. we are waiting. ed: friends@foxnews.com. send us a note. jedediah: fox news alert. republican lawmakers that called for president trump's impeachment is leaving the party. michigan congressman justin amash announcing he is becoming an independent in the "the washington post." he writes i'm asking you to join me in rejecting the partisan loyalty and rhetoric that divide and dehumanize us. adding we can do better than this two party system. the five term congressman has faced heavy criticism from the president and republican colleagues. steve: is that the amash voice? pete: bye-bye. jedediah: navy seal eddie gallagher will retire after being cleared of murder charges. gallagher joins pete on "fox & friends" since his first interview since the verdict. >> this has put a black eye on this community but i want the nation to know that this is not what our community is
