1 degrees in new york city. sit back, relax, pour yourself a big cup of joe and enjoy the show starts now. ainsley: thank you for watching. start about this story. little little people winning. trading app. robin hood is going to open the game stop stock after they were restricted on the platform. brian: ashley strohmier joins us with more as the app. faces lawsuits amidst customer complaints. a lot of moving parts to this ashley. best of luck. >> there really is the company says starting today they plan to allow limited buys of the securities and will monitor and make adjustments as they see fit. they also tried to clarify what happened yesterday saying, quote: it was a risk management decision and was not made on the direction of the market mangers. this as it was hit with two lawsuits last night alleging robin hood manipulated it platform. however the ceo of trading app. defended that move. listen to this. >> in order to protect the firm and protect our customers, we
3:03 am
had to limit buying in these stocks. we did this proactively. and thousands of other securities remain tradeable on the plaferl platform. >> as the lawsuit are filed, the new york a.g. says her office is reviewing robin hood's actions while dozens of people were at the new york stock exchange protesting during the chaos. hedge fund billionaire leon cooperman blast out at the situation saying quote the reason the market is doing what it is doing is people are sitting home getting checks from the government. barstool sports founder dave portnoy says there needs to be an investigation. >> it's criminal. there has to be an investigation. people have to go to jail. whether that actually happens, i don't know. i have never been more convinced about market manipulation and the people, the hedge funds controlling the game than today. >> portnoy will be joining us on "fox & friends" at 8:45 to discuss his thoughts on this
3:04 am
situation with robin hood. and, ainsley, that game stop stock-i have been having issues with it all morning. steve: no kidding. dave is going to be on the show in about two and a half hours. he is saying, you know, there need to be investigation. people need to go to jail because this robin hood app., which was the number one app. of the week by the way. stopped people from selling and buying the stock yesterday. which essentially stopped all that's, you know, could be you, a day trader who has been doing this. it all started on one of these bulletin boards where people are saying you know what? people are shorting game stop. it's a good outfit. sounds like they are going to open more stores. there are new gaming consoles out there. this is actually a great idea. let's go ahead and do something that wall street cannot do. right now wall street is betting against it. so, let's bet for it.
3:05 am
and so you could have bought a couple of weeks ago game stop stock at $17. brian: how do you say it so easy? steve: it's a game stop there it is on the screen stock. you could have bought it at $17. this week it was at 4' $0. it's up over 1,000%. it is driven by the little guy. but, unfortunately, wall street is run by the big guys and they don't like it. says rush. >> they are actually making it clear to anybody who has the ability to notice, that you are not allowed to use the stock market the way they do. you are not allowed to profit. you are not allowed to make the kind of money they do. this game stop business now makes this something that is understandable beyond the political world. and that its value. it's not just political anymore.
3:06 am
it's not just that you can't think for yourself on issues. and matters of politics. everything is rigged in favor of the elites. and this has come along and upset that rigging. steve: exactly the elites. ainsley: a component of revenge against wall street. rush goes on to say that the elites are bent out of shape because average, ordinary users have figure you had out how to become billionaires too. wall street doesn't like that. game stop was really struggling for six years of the amazon age. people were buying games from amazon. the pandemic hit and people started buying game stop again and so it started to come back and that was a great story for this small little, you no, brick and mortar store. the. steve: it's now worth more than american airlines. ainsley: i heard on "fox & friends first" there is a child in texas. his mom gave him for christmas a few stocks. et sold it. she paid like'6" or $7. he sold it and got thousands of
3:07 am
dollars. 3 or $4,000. maybe that will go toward the college fund. brian: i watched the robin hood interview on cngc. people don't say i want stock advice from are charles payne or brian kilmeade. the truth is i washed this robin hood ceo who seems a little overwhelmed at the moment. and he had to evidently draw a line of credit from between 500 million and 600 million. steve: he needed a million-dollar bailout. he needs more cash to cover heightened margin requirements. so he's in trouble. what i really care about is not that guy. i care about a guy like daniel lee who is 22 years old from los angeles, quote: a lot of regular hardworking americans have been putting their money and hoping and praying that they get something out of it touring a time when everyone is struggling. i felt like it was not just betrayal but completely unethical in so many ways. that's what we will talk to dave portnoy does a lot of day
3:08 am
trading and made millions of dollars on it 2 hours and 45 minutes and experts along the way. i believe the one thing that happened that i didn't think was possible. democrats and republicans are united in the outrage that this is not fair there is going to be hell to pay. ainsley: where is there outrage censorship. the little guy was trying to be silenced when they wouldn't allow them to buy yesterday. that's changed and now there is some lawsuits and several people, several congress members, republicans and democrats are now saying we are going to investigate. steve: ainsley, hell is freezing over because aoc and ted cruz are on the same page. brian: they don't like each other. steve: i'm just saying hell is freezing over. brian: she tweeted back at him and said you tried to murder me so leave me alone. ainsley: they agree on this issue. steve stove no kidding. in the beginning, when people were trying to figure out a year ago how to handle this covid
3:09 am
pandemic, governor cuomo made a failings mistake. we know it's fatal given hindsight. what he suggested was after people who have been living in nursing homes, after they go into a hospital or after they have had covid, they can go back to the nursing home. as it turns out that was just about the dumbest thing you could possibly have done because nursing homes were not equipped for it. now, over the last year it's been impossible to get numbers how many people actually died because of his decision. well, yesterday, the attorney general, a democrat, latisha james, issued a report and essentially said that the governor has been in the midst of a cover-up on the number of nursing home deaths. before the report the state only reported the number ever people who actually died at the nursing home address. that's all. they did not report the number of people who had been at a nursing home but then to the sick and got taken to the hospital and then suddenly died. that was never part of it, but
3:10 am
it should have been because they got it at the nursing home. now instead of the number being ainsley 8500, 8700, it's closer to something like 1,000. they under estimated it by 55%. and that is despicable. ainsley: one example said the ag released this report yesterday and she hesitated to do it because, you know, she is a democrat and friends with cuomo and they work together. but, she has gotten so much push back she decided to investigate and she called each nursing home or went to each nursing home individually and she released a 76 page report. one example for you, one facility reported to the department of health there were five confirmed deaths, six presumed deaths as of august 3rd. but the report to the office of the a.g. says 27 deaths. 13 hospital deaths. there is a discrepancy here of 2 9 deaths. in addition to that, her findings show new york undercounted nursing home covid-19 deaths as steve was saying by as much as 50%, a lack
3:11 am
of compliance by nursing homes increased deaths and insufficient p. e covid-19 testing put residents at risk. elise stefanik says massive corruption and cover-up scandal and she is demanding documentation. brian: right. there is so many things to this story. number one is the lack of interest from other people because according to most of the media, governor cuomo walks on water. if you listen to him on a daily basis, you know he is probably one of the worst governors in the country. the crazy thing is he has no clue how incompetent is he because his arrogance won't allow it. he admitted to 8329 who died in nursing homes. they find in the study 12500 have died in nursing homes. the key is during this time in the pandemic happened in over 100 years people make mistakes in retrospect you do a study like 9/11 and get through it. when you deny it and stop people from study studying it and block people from looking into it and it involves their parents or loved ones that's a huge problem
3:12 am
especially when people bring it up to you and you turn around and say oh, that's just politics from the right wing or you try to dismiss people like janice dean and say oh, you know, she is just on the fox network which has nothing to do with it. howard zucker came out with it and look at this report and had a interesting response. he is the new york state health inspector. people in nursing homes not transferred to hospitals and later died. don't suggest all the people we undercounted in nursing home deaths even though they died in hospitals. questioned the number of deaths. that's called i am not going to answer the question. the question is you had the javits center. you had a hospital ship. you had a million options and you chose to put them back in nursing homes and people died. this would have been a terrible tragic story but if you make a bad decision as a leader, you own up to it. generals have done that, presidents have done that, premier and prime ministers. but when you deny it for a year
3:13 am
and then blame it on the administration or the cdc, that, to me, is terrible leadership. and this example, steve, the media's lack of interest in this story. steve: if you take a look at the nightly newses, abc spent not a second. cbs devoted a big 8 seconds. and almost 90 seconds over on nbc. you know, but here's the thing. that should not surprise us being here in new york city because the media over the last year has been very constituent. consistent. it president trump did a very bad job but governor cuomo's whose state under estimated the number of people who died because of nursing home deaths due to covid he has been a genius. do we need to remind you. we have a flashback, watch. >> new york's andrew cuomo has
3:14 am
become an outspoken voice in this crisis with his blunt and sobers assessments. >> you were there for us, and i go oh, he is smart and you were honest. >> you exposed a lot of your own vulnerabilities. >> topic about you is your love life. >> have you been commended for your clear and your common leadership. >> congratulations, andrew, on your much deserved founder's award. >> you and your brother chris tied as the most desirable member in new york. >> is it true that this was the swab that the nurse was actually using? in scale this was the actual swab that was being used. >> that was going to be nice and sweet. >> i just. steve: you can go to the "new york post." can you get the true story the lead story right now in it is janice dean talking about how she lost both of her husband's parents to covid. they were nursing home
3:15 am
residents. it is a terrible story and it is shocking to see how little it is being covered in the mainstream media. ainsley: janice says she remembers watching that interview with the two cuomo brothers. it was horrible watching them laughing and joking around and holding up the swab when she was burying her in-laws. these are many nos and dads and brothers and sisters and people deserve answers. they also want to know answers about when are schools going to open? hard of us so hard is in so many different ways. had that dad, the mad dad because is he speaking out for all of us, for all of us that want kids back in school because we are worried about how much they are learning, their lack of learning, and the stats, the science shows that they can go back to school. and some counties are doing it and others are not. and that dad right there was so upset. if you didn't see it. he spoke out at the school board meeting. this is in loudoun county the county in virginia. listen. >> you are a bunch of cowards, hiding behind our children as an
3:16 am
excuse for keeping schools closed. >> the garbage workers who pick up my freaking trash risk their lives every day more than anyone in this school system. figure it out or get off the podium because, you know what? there are people like me and a line of other people out there who will gladly take your seat and figure it out. 'it's not a high bar. raise the freaking bar. brian: kids are getting damaged. it's not a matter of delay or boredom or inconvenience. kids are disappearing from the school system. they are not able to interact. they are not going to get these years back and the development is going to cost the whole country. let alone those families down the line. so brandon joined tucker last night minus the mask, a little calmer and talked about what led to that moment. >> we have gone for months to
3:17 am
these school board meetings and as parents our voice wasn't being heard. when i got up there, my blood started boiling a little bit. as i began speaking i said, look, i want them to hear me and i want them to look up and pay attention. if you are not going to lead -- this country was built on strong leaders, take a step to the side. that's okay. let other people step into that void. and if you are not going to get our kids back, make a plan and execute it. and do you know what? you may fall a little short, but it's better than no plan at all. go to your local school board meeting. look it up. see when it is. go and see, write something, you know, phone in, write an email. try to make some change. try to get our kid back in school because our kids are the most important asset in our life. brian: yeah, i would say so. he says what everybody missed and i would love to see that video of his two kids speaking to the school board before he got up there. and he felt like they were totally ignored. they weren't even paying attention to him. that's why he got up there and said you got to be kidding me. ainsley: 5-year-old and 7-year-old. brian: can you imagine that?
3:18 am
we got to get the video. in hillsborough county, florida, 7,000 kids just missing from the school system. they do not report on zoom were they have the equipment or not. they have done a study at stanford, and they say the average kid has lost a third of a year worth of learning, that's if they show up for school. and three quarters of a year's worth in math. this is unbelievable what's happening right now. it is a five alarm fire. steve: well. and we have been saying that on this program for months. and we have been talking about how the cdc says, you know, for a lot of these kids they are actually safer at school. there is a reason that in chicago the public schools are all closed because the teachers union won't let them go back to work. the catholic schools are all open and there is not a problem. what his real frustration was, mr. michon last night. he encouraged other parents to speak unjust so that, you know, when he was all by himself at the loudoun county school board
3:19 am
it was just him and his kids talking about let's open up the schools again. do you know what they need to do? they need to do exactly what the robin hood reddit stock traders did. that is to organize online. there is power in numbers. get together online and figure out how to pressure your school board into hearing what you have to say because, ainsley, without that, the school board is going to do what the school board wants to do. it's not necessarily what the people of that county want to do, which is open the schools for their children's benefit. ainsley: that's right. all right. we are going to be talking about it all morning. 6:19 on the east coast. coming up will cain is dishing out some breakfast with his friends in knoxville, tennessee. steve: friend. there is only one. ainsley: there are two. will: good morning. good morning. there will be a lot of friend here this morning, brian. don't you take an easy shot at me. we are in knoxville tennessee, east tennessee very near and dear to my heart. nic and j's cafe named after the sons of the owner.

steve: well, the roller coaster week on wall street is not expected to slow down today when the stock market robin hood reopening limited trading for companies bike game stock and aoc. this after the company was hit with lawsuits and accused of market manipulation after blocking users from buying stock yesterday. here to help break it all down is managing partner of benchmark
3:25 am
investment kevin, good morning to you. , little guys sitting at home desk and doing some day trading and playing by the rules. suddenly out of nowhere stopped activity yesterday and people are going they are screwing the little guy and they are helping wall street. >> yeah. and that's what it felt like. because not only couldn't trade or buy they may unwind some of your trade in those stocks. that's what really, i think, scared people is not only but, you know, could you not buy these stocks which seems like an arbitrary amount of stocks not only game stop but nokia so the little guy felt like hey, here is our time where we are actually able to trade and making money and now we are being prevented from doing that.
3:26 am
steve: exactly. and by virtually the fact that robin hood stopped that, stopped the little guy from doing that yesterday, he had been, you know, ge about 1,000 percent in the last month or two. yesterday, game stop stock was down 44%. amc stock was down 56%. reading how they got together in chat boards. ultimately in the beginning was it a case, kevin, where the little guys got together and said you know, game stop is a good stock we can make money on or we want to screw the wall street shorts who are betting against that company? >> it was actually a little bit of both. in the beginning it was really sort of the reddit guy thing hey, listen, we know that wall street has shorted, meaning they sold the company and tried to drive the price down to the tune of 145% of the shares
3:27 am
outstanding. meaning there are more shares sold short than existed. but then also what happened was is over the fundamental change in the business in december, where actually the founder of chewy.com that helped turn around a petco business or pet smart business online came on poured and bought 12% of the stock. when he came in and bought a bunch of the stock. wall street had to buy the shares back and started listing them. people started saying hey, this is a great stock we may want to own for a few years. it was multiple case scenario. steve: a lot of people who because of the pandemic have been at home and they are starting to dabble in stocks and downloaded the free app. and so they did that some of the professional experts on wall street said, you know these people don't really know what they are doing. but they have been playing by the rules. but then yesterday he robin hood essentially said look, we are just trying to protect the investor, our customers. that's not really true, is it?
3:28 am
>> yeah. no, it actually turns outs that that isn't true. that robin hood actually itself was not well capitalized to handle and do all this trading and so that's what they are coming out and saying now is like hey, we actually -- we are going to blame the regulators. the they keep so much amount of money for trades and we didn't have enough so we had to prevent it, right? so if the beginning it felt like robin hood was saying listen, you guys don't know what you are doing so you can't trade these stocks and they are too volatile and we are trying to protect you. that doesn't make sense because how they know what people are thinking? steve: sure. before you go, for the little guy out there watching, what's a good stock to buy today? >> oh, you know, that's actually a great question. i think people should always buy stocks that they know and use and on the daily basis, right? so they -- microsoft is a great one because they do have, you know, the x box. so it's another great way if you
3:29 am
are using the internet and got the cloud and other gaming. i think microsoft is a great nice technology that people would know and like in their portfolio. steve: we will see if you just moved the market. will managing partner, thank you for joining us from newport beach, california. thank you. and then he would say thank you if he wasn't frozen. meanwhile, breakfast with friends is back on the menu this time with some good ole southern cooking our own will cain in southern tennessee talking to diners. there is two there. will: there is. starting to fill up, steve. i'm not frozen. >> i will say thank you. good morning from nic and j.'s from knoxville, tennessee. i love this game stop story. i absolutely love it. i think they do too. i will talk to these diners what they think is so important going on across this country right now. live from knoxville, tennessee, "fox & friends" coming up ♪ ♪

you are? >> it's a huge level of frustration. especially us being the fourth biggest school district in the state. the state flat out came out and said until we are able get back in the school that we won't be able to get out on the field which is just unfair to almost everybody. brian: you want to play in college. >> i do. brian: it's not just about players like yourself that stand out and want to play in college. most of you just want to play. having said that you have to play in college. if to get anybody interested in you, you need tape. you haven't had tape since your soft more year. how tough is it for you to get anybody's interest? >> you know, hopefully i have a really good junior season. but i mean i'm sorry people keep calling me. brian: no problem. brian: i know you are frustrated. that rally. what was it like being at that rally with other kids that feel the same way you do?
3:44 am
brian: you know, i think the feeling around the school district is all mutual. you know. we're all frustrated. we all just want to play. we all know we can do it safely and the fact that our school district has just come out and said we are not going to do it until we are in school. without even giving us a plan to go into school any time this year, it is really frustrating. >> so you were supposed to get back out there, you know, in new york they stopped the fall sports but now they are starting the fall sports in the spring. and they are going go winter and they are going to go winter, fall, and then spring. it can be done are you able to get anyone's attention on the school board. >> definitely the they had a school board meeting after our rally and talked about how our superintendent was going to talk to the coach's union about hopefully a february 13th start update for our district. our school district superintendent has been on
3:45 am
twitter retweeting stuff. he actually was seen at the rally giving you was a couple rounds of applauses. we definitely grabbed their attention with this. brian: who is stopping it? >> i think it's just the entire school board, really. brian: unbelievable. all right. nate, we will stay on top of this. don't -- do not stop fighting. you got to make it uncomfortable for these people making decisions because the numbers are low. other states are doing it. it's not fair to continue to deny the students this like yourself. younger and older. nate beck, kent lake high school, thanks so much, nate. >> appreciate you. brian: you got it. we reached out to kent state -- kent school district for a statement. have not heard back. meanwhile, we told you -- well, i will tell you what, we told you about new york's attorney general finding state officials severely under counted coronavirus deaths in nursing homes earlier. ainsley: no one has been more vocal on governor cuomo's failed leadership than our own janice
3:46 am
dean after losing both of other in-laws and she joins us now. good morning, janice. janice: good morning. ainsley: if you read this report it is accusing governor cuomo of what you have been saying all along. janice: it's amazing. i will tell you it's just the beginning of more work we have to do. it's a door opening. but we have to have a real investigation where we get cuomo, his health department, his administration on the stand in front of a jury to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. steve: you have been vindication indicated because this is what you have been asking for all along. people just waking up the numbers have been wrong because the number of people from nursing homes who have died is just the number of people who had died right there at that address not the people who were transported to a hospital and died like the next day or later in a hospital. now we know the number is 55% higher. you are the lead editorial, janice dean, in the "new york
3:47 am
post" this morning. and people should read it online because it clearly comes from your heart. but, i know there are a lot of people who want to punish governor cuomo because of the way he has handled the pandemic and the way he has covered this up. out in california, they are going to have a recall most probably. but they can't do that in new york state. can they? >> no, it's a different law out in california. believe me, i have looked into it. and we cannot recall this governor. this will be hopefully his last term and someone else will be voted n 2022 many. brian: it's time for a new term. he is running for a fourth term robert did he near owe must be happy. people who agree with you attorney general a huge are democrat latisha james and the other person is mayor de blasio he is saying we got to get answers. i'm like excuse me, are you
3:48 am
stealing janice dean's script the mayor. this guy has made enemies of everyone. he doesn't talk to schumer, unbelievably and he doesn't really talk to the mayor, incredible. and the attorney general is one that did the investigation. so, he might be isolated enough to be forced to give answers. what are your thoughts about that? janice: i hope so. listen, i have covered this governor for over 10 months now. and i have heard whispers in my ear that not many people like him. is he a bully. brian: yep. ian january he doesn't take any responsibility or accountability. we have seen what he wants to do. he wants to celebrate himself. this governor cares about one person, and that is andrew cuomo. steve: as soon as this was released yesterday we all thought about you. janice, thank you very much for joining us. once again, folks can read her story. ainsley: real quickly, janice, have you made a decision if you are going to run? janice: no. i think i want to run to the ice cream store. >> steve: there you go. brian: adam klotz your move.

4:02 am
you preach unity and step into office and immediately pass aen to of executive orders unilaterally how does that work? how do you reconcile those two ideas? right down the way i talked to heath. an interesting example who talked about restaurants and schools and things being closed. he is in oil and gas. is he from houston a texan like me. he has been living here for nine months because oil and gas is shut down in texas. now is he working at nuclear plant be here in tennessee. is he asking tell me one thing how do these executive orders help americans? how do they help our jobs? just to bring it back together the question is how do you reconcile that with being all about unity? one thing they are union need on is nick and j's. i tell you biscuits andography, eggs, coffee. we can all unify around that right? ainsley: i want you to ask heath if he would take a job when all these alternatives come? they say the jobs arer who. we have new jobs for you. would he be willing to learn how to do solar power? brian: how about code? will: do you want me to ask him

real quick? will: i don't know if you can pan down here, heath, i want to ask you a quick question. he moved from oil and gas to nuclear engineering. if joe biden said, listen, we're going to retrain you, we are going to make some adjustments for climate change. don't worry, we are going to help retrain you into a new job you excited about that. >> not at all. i'm 50 years old. what are you going to train me to build solar panels? i think china has the market. will: i think he lakes the job he has right now. he would like to keep it. steve: i think everybody likes the job they have. brian: so insulting when these politicians say i'm going to teach tough do something else without even asking you as if they are career counselors. thanks, will. steve: thank you, sir. >> will: right. steve: mean while while on this friday signing are executive orders and actions amid widespread criticism from many on the right. ainsley: mark meredith is live at the white house with more. hey, mark. >> ainsley, good morning to you, biden has spent first nine days in office rolling back so much

of president trump's policies. he is not doing that through congress. instead, is he doing that by executive actions. on thursday we saw some more executive orders go into place including expanding the obamacare insurance marketplace access. in the last few days the president has also lifted restrictions on transgender military members and he has also placed newl and gas permits. now, compared to his predecessors, the president seems to be relying a lot more on executive actions at least early in his term. something the white house is now being forced to defend. >> he also ran with a commitment to take sentence immediately to address the pain and suffering that the american people were feeling. and that includes overturning many so of the detrimental, harmful and at times moral policies and actions of the prior administration. it. todd: now, the administration says it remains focused on trying to get its clean energy agenda passed including making sure there is new investment in things like solar energy. some question how easily that's going to happen with china

already dominating that marketplace. some lawmakers also fear that the president's executive actions send the wrong message to workers. >> telling these people you can go get a job in solar power, computer coding something better for you to do anyway. nothing can be more condescending than what we have seen out of the biden administration. >> we do expect to hear from the president a little bit later on today. is he going to be meeting with his economic team and heading out to walter reed medical center to meet with wounded service members. steve, ainsley, brian, happy friday. back to you guys. steve: thank you very much. mark, real quick before you go. today was supposed to be immigration day. executive orders on immigration. now they say we are going to do it next week. what happened? >> there has been a lot of talk about what these executive orders are actually going to look pike because of course you will have a lot of lawmakers have to defend it for themselves. we are hearing it's still going to happen next week. the white house was asked when next week will we nail down a time monday or tuesday? they refuse to commit to a timeline simply saying that they continue to address their
4:06 am
message calendar. you have to wonder, steve, how much push back they were getting on the hill. steve: such a good point. mark, thank you. brian: what he's m outlined how joe biden talked about unity and done the exact opposite. he just now gives us a sentence or two about the executive orders that he is signing and you look at the numbers it's pretty astounding. look at orders and actions over 40. look at just actions it's 25. and you see all the other presidents. they are all in single digits. by den is signing away. probably go going to do it all next week. keep in mind, too. he doesn't want to talk about immigration. tell stay 6 feet apart and wear nine masks instead of one. he is allowing open border self. stop building the wall and let people coming through. and fighting to allow people to stay 100 days to fight deportations. not only is it executive orders that he is going unilateral live his whole party is they were laughable will 1.9 trillion that he is demanding. after he just got 900 billion
4:07 am
right before he took over even though he hasn't spent 1.8 trillion? they are going to ram it through, it seems in the senate and they do not care if they get a single republican vote. and he says i'm using may pen in a record number of executive orders to undo trump. this is part of it. could you please tell me when someone -- each the "new york times" to their credit called him out yesterday in their editorial. can you please tell me how long the press is going to give him a pass on this unity theme when two weeks in, not even two weeks in he has done nothing. there is no proof that he even picked up the phone and talked to a republican in the last 10 days. what about this guy that used to reach across the aisle as a senator? he is bypassing the senate. it is just incredible. guess who recognizes his executive orders? it's all about the green and it's the author of the green new deal alexandria ocasio-cortez. >> i'm feeling extraordinarily
4:08 am
encouraged and i think that the significance of president biden's executive orders communicates a lot. one, is that it really commune indicates that he meant what he said on the campaign trail that he would make climate change a central priority of the administration and that he considers it not just a national security threat but, frankly, the global matter that it is. it also is really -- it also really signifies a good faith openness and relationship to those activist communities. steve: so when the "new york times" said that editorial that we quoted yesterday and the headline is ease up on the executive actions, joe. we shouldn't be surprised that he is being cheered by democrats and republicans are saying hey,ing you know, that is simply overreach. for her to say that she likes the idea. but, ultimately, the "new york times" is arguing, are lack, you want to get anything done that's going to last longer than your
4:09 am
presidency, have you got to work with congress what is what joe biden said he would do. he said i have been in congress and senate for 175 years. put me interest and i will negotiate. so far we haven't really seen that but then again we are just barely 10 days into his administration. from the executive orders that we have seen so far. we know first day he pulled the plug on the xl pipeline. that's 11,000 jobs. then we were talking yesterday about all the executive actions regarding oil and gas. we had a guest on yesterday who said that just what he did this week would cost at least 58,000 jobs immediately. here in the united states. listen to randy hendrix, a business manager of pipelines union 798 says this is just the first step in wiping out an important part of america's energy infrastructure. >> i feel for those 87 members
4:10 am
and a lot of them i know personally. what i really worry about is the next step where you put the moratoriums on permits and the new work coming in where you are drilling or exploring or permitting for new wells. the big picture is if you wanted to have a playboo playbook to wa nation, you take away their energy or you take away their supply chain and this is a perfect way to do it as you start w a pipelines and then you go to the oil wells and it's ludicrous that we are going to try to kill our own industry for our enemies. ainsley: really good point. we are going to have to rely on opec countries to get oil and russia and they are not concerned about clean energy the way that the biden administration is. so it defeats the whole purpose. instead we lose thousands of jobs as a result. the "new york times," that editorial board piece, they said that these -- all these executive actions flawed substitutes for legislation. >> steve: right. ainsley: then they went on to
4:11 am
say it's not meant to serve an end run around the will of congress. congress is supposed to vote on the direction of this country. but because it's so tight, republicans and democrats they have decided they are going to sign all these records. when you hear the stories of these individuals worked industry entire lives and trained for that and heard the man in the diner this morning he is 50 years old. he doesn't want to retrain and start over again. is he 10, are 15 years away from retirement, probably. brian: i love this quote from joe biden when asked what if they go ahead and pass this legislation by a simple majority and you get 1.9 trillion without any republicans support? is that unity? he said yeah, at a minimum if you pass a piece of legislation that breaks down party lines but it gets passed it doesn't mean there is no unity. it just means it wasn't bipartisan. do you think we are idiots? american people said 50. your response is 50. republicans are going to regret

4:14 am
17.0 will dollars and at the end of the day $15.71. highest number more than 400. steve: yesterday. earlier this week, two days ago it was at $469 per share. it's gone up 1,000 percent recently. brian: dave portnoy goes on last night the perfect example he said i don't feel bad at all for any of these guys and whoever is investing who is saying wow, you are messing with the game and messing with the rules. when football started there was no forward pass and come up with a forward pass the game changed. change with it or it will be left behind. he said a little bit with additional crass but his point was made even more effectively tucker carlson looked at the big picture last night on tucker carlson. this is what he concluded. >> are bet money specific develop short selling. short selling has no obvious value to the american economy.
4:15 am
what's happening on wall street is so clearly awful and so obviously destruct tiff. the question is who is going to fight back against it? as it turns out a bunch of guys on reddit will. the investment app. robin hood used by independent investors to buy and sell stock banned its users from trading game stop shares as well as from several other company's shares and they did it under pressure from the hedge funds who they really work for. so much for the free market you are always hearing about. there is nothing free about it. that turned out to be a lie. turns out that what wall street really hates is outsider trading. of the idea that people from outside their world might be getting rich. steve: exactly. so you have got these day traders who have been kind of banding together on reddit and other message boards talking about okay, look at this stock. this is a good way to make money and at the same time you can kind of stick it to the wall street institutional investors who have been shorting this stock. betting against the stock. but those particular hedge funds, ainsley to your earlier

point, they missed the signs that game stock was actually a good stock to own. ryan cohen, a billionaire started of buying shares within the last couple of months with plans to move it online because right now it's brick and mortar stores. so that was very helpful. also, microsoft and also sony have both come out with new gaming consoles have you got to buy the game some place and that's what that particular company does. it's good for the company that sells the video games. so game stock was not that hopeless. wall street missed it and now the little guy is making money and they don't like it because they don't like the fact that the retail person that they used to charge per trade is making more than they are squeezing the short. ainsley: they didn't like that their plan didn't work. the little guy. steve: they were betting against that company. ainsley: i know. i know. steve: somebody is yelling we have to wrap it up for headlines. ainsley: jillian, take it away.

♪ brian: new york governor andrew cuomo is facing bipartisan backlash after a report by the state's democratic attorney general finds the number of nursing home residents who died due to covid-19 could be up to 50% higher than the state reported.
4:23 am
let's bring in fox news medical contributor dr. marc siegel. dr. siegel, is it just about the numbers that stands out to you about this report or is this something else? >> no. it's not just the numbers, brian. although the numbers really were revealing and i would have predicted that the numbers were half of what he said they were or the state said they were because they definitely had higher than the national average. we're talking now about 40% of deaths from covid-19 in the state due to nursing home deaths. when you are readmitting patients to nursing homes who have covid, it's like tender, tindersetting a fire in nursing. families were not informed. disgraceful. no communication with families. personal protective equipment inadequate. testing inadequate. and by the way, nursing homes can never be set up properly for covid-19. do you know why? do you know whether a it takes to properly set up for covid? you need negative pressure. you need isolation, you need people wearing like space suits,
4:24 am
personal protective equipment. you knead knowledge about how infectious diseases spread which is not what nursing homes know about. so it's really never the right place. brian: nursing home deaths reported by the department of health originally 1299 nursing home test it. went up to actually 1914 nursing home deaths reported by the attorney general yesterday. so what you are saying is there isn't even a plausible scenario for somebody to be treated for the covid virus in a nursing home. it should automatically be to the hospital, stay isolated. and you can't even say we had no place to put them because the javits center instantly converted by the army corps of engineers and you had a hospital ship requested and delivered. so, i have a hard time understanding their point of view on this. >> by the way, brian, that hospital ship was almost empty. that would have been a perfect place for it. or the javits center as you said, which could have seen

thousand more patients. it was set up for it. now, in florida, i talk to nursing homes in florida at the beginning of the pandemic and all of the things that you just mentioned were put in place there early warning systems. families told about this. patients sent right away to the hospital. and not brought back. you have to figure out where to send them where they are not going to reinfect people and it's crucial because a lot of patients from nursing homes are immunocompromised and run down and they may remain contagious for several days. very dangerous idea. there is no way to protect people in nursing homes. this was an absolutely grat disgraceful that this went on. brian: he always talked about communication and transparent and get on board. this is something where he wanted no part of these numbers or this report. some of the other conclusions insufficient ppe. insufficient testing. lack of nursing home compliance. and march 2020 ordered to admit covid-19 patients into nursing homes got us in this mess to begin with. but, dr. siegel, these nursing homes, did they bear some
4:26 am
responsibility? they are not all state-run. >> no. they did bear responsibility because they weren't acknowledging their deficiencies. they weren't acknowledging that they were not communicating with elms if a. imagine, our viewers, imagine you are a family member like janice dean's family, of course where you don't even know, you know, again in these florida nursing homes that i talked to, they were getting daily phone calls saying hey, this patient turned positive, they were transferred to this hospital. your family member is okay. you weren't allowed in to the nursing home. remember you couldn't see your mother or your father. you couldn't even look at them through a glass. so to not know if they are getting covid-19 or even dying is the worst possible idea. and that's what was going on in new york. brian: yeah. it's still happening. and now we have got to hope that the are similar type of dysfunction when it comes to the vaccine. >> yeah. brian, the fact that it was so white washed makes me worry it could happen again here. the point about the vaccine is
4:27 am
really important. that has to happen. i don't know that i belief it. that it is happening. we need everyone in the nursing home in new york and across the country vaccinated as soon as possible against covid-19. that's going to cut down the death rate dramatically. brian: i notice your hospital has been texting saying you are not eligible yet but we are going to keep you informed. that's what we need somebody keep everyone up to date because the computer system register is just a nightmare. dr. siegel, thank you so much. >> thank you and we are starting to target people over 75. absolutely. brian. thank you. brian: okay. i am not there yet. thanks, dr. siegel. fox news has reached out to the governor for a statement and we have not heard anything back. i am stunned. still ahead, a virginia dad's message to lock down leaders well, it goes viral. >> garbage workers who pick up my freakin' trash risk their lives every day more than anyone in this school system. brian: the growing i couldn't tell rage to get kids back in

even more types of cancer. it's tru. keytruda from merck. see the different types of cancer keytruda is approved to treat at keytruda.com, and ask your doctor if keytruda can be part of your story. >> you are a bunch of cowards hiding behind our children as an excuse for keeping our schools closed. figure it out or get off the podium. because, you know what? there are people like me and a line of other people out there who will gladly take your seat and figure it out. steve: a very frustrated virginia father of two who wept viral after that passionate address tuesday night to his school board speaking out to tucker carlson and encouraging others to do what he just did.
4:33 am
>> go to your local school board meeting, look it up. see when it is. go and see, write something, you know, phone in. write an email, try to make some change. try to get our kids back in school because our kids are the most important asset in our life. ainsley: let's bring in "fox & friends weekend" co-host will cain and pete hegseth to act. will, i know you are down in tennessee. talking to folks at the tirn and curious to what they have to say. what's your reaction to that as a dad? will: bravo to that dad. we need our kids in school. it's so clear,s ainsley. let me just tell you one more thing that makes me upset almost on the same level of that dad. all of that's stories you are talking about really that we have been talking about for months or inner connected. businesses being shut down while politicians go out to fancy dinners. elites shutting down the robin hood trading companies so you can't trade in being toes while the hedge funds can. and then schools being shut down while private school rich kids can still go to school. it's all connected. there is one set of rules for
4:34 am
most of us. and there is another set of rules for insiders, elites, those with special privileges. it's prif late all throughout society and enough to make anyone angry, especially when it applies to our children as you saw right there. brian: pete, what's your experience with your kids? how is the remote learning going? i don't need to look at the study. i need to look at the hegseth camp for higher learning. pete: the academy. brian: you must feel that man's frustration. pete: 100 percent. all over the math. some kids in school that has been opened completely sign waivers to not each wear masks if they want and feels like regular school. i have other schools where they have been in. they have been out. they have been zoom calls and back in the classroom all very are a did i temporary. earnestly trying to democrat best they can. regulations so burdensome, information so unclear. i have wanted to scream the way that dad has every time i feel like oh here we go again back to zoom classrooms because they can't figure it out. just figure it out.
4:35 am
we know kid are not the problem. would he have figured out how to do so many other things. we know that unions ultimately are driving so many of these places where under privileged kids can't go to school. their power is too big. amen to what this guy did. go to the meeting, yell about it. >> put them on their plate and tell them you get paid but i don't if i don't go to work. get our kids back to school. steve: in chicago the public schools because of the unions are closed; however, in chicago the catholic schools are absolutely wide open. all right. >> will, we started this segment five years ago the whole idea is to talk to people see what they are saying so stand up and talk to those folks having breakfast. will: well, before i do that heath gave me a warning talking to the people of tennessee. >> be careful. norm here be careful. will: be careful here. will: keith is not talking you up over there. you were telling me two kids 15 and 12 years old. what do you think about kids and whether or not they should be back in school?
4:36 am
>> they absolutely need to be in school. they need the social interaction. they learn better for the most part. i know my kid do. and it's just -- they need to be in there with their friends. >> now, trent is a realtor. his brother is a loan officer. can you see how this relationship works. you were saying school is important not just for the kids. >> it's for the parents. we need them back. we really do. our own sanity. will: i have actually heard hegseth say that on weekend. please get the kids back to school for me. i need that. this is fascinating. i want to introduce to you martha. martha got permission from her principal here to go in a little bit later. martha is a teacher. tell me about teaching and how it's been this year. >> we have been in school since august 3rd in person and virtual as the student wanted. and it's been awesome really. the students are ready to be back. i think eighth graders we haven't had a single student-to-student or teacher to student transmission of covid. our parents were awesome.
4:37 am
if there is somebody in the family was sick. they kept them home, we had a system for if they needed to go into quarantine to keep on. it's been great. our parents have been great. our school has been great. will: there you have it martha is teaching eighth graders. almost all saying their kids are in school five days a week. not just education but social interaction whereas pete pointed out arbitrarily across the state my kids have been remote all year long and will be remote through the end of the year. ainsley: wow. will, thank her for all of us because we have learned one thing or a lot of things throughout all of this but definitely that our teachers are heroes and we need them because they do a lot better than we do at home. so, pete, tell us what's coming up on the weekend show. pete: absolutely. to will's point all comes to leadership superintendents and principals that have guts have their kids in school. this weekend nicole malliotakis. dean cain, nancy grace and who am i missing lara logan and many

ainsley: president biden signing a series of executive orders rolling back restrictions on abortion access as well. one of the orders reversing the so-called mexico city policy which bands federal funds from
4:43 am
going overseas internationally to provide abortions. joining us now former nfl player and keynote speaker at this year's virtual march for life event today benjamin watson. hey, benjamin. hey, ainsley how is did going. i know this is a issuary and dear to your heart. what was your reaction when biden be decided to rescind this. >> i was disappointed like so many americans we work hard for dollars taxpayer dollars but to go overseas. we should be in the business of supporting life. domestically as well as abroad. not in the business of seeking to end life. and so while this was not unexpected, i think that it is a clarion call to the nation just to understand where we are and the fact that the work does not stop. work being done women's clinics around the country. work being done to support mothers.
4:44 am
75% say they would parent if circumstances were different is just an encouragement that that word needs to continue and we need to press our elected officials to abide by the desires how our dollars are being sent. ainsley: not being done 77% of americans oppose using our tax dollars to support abortion in other countries. i guess he didn't take that into account when he was signing that and putting that pen to paper. the march for life is today. it's a virtual event. i wonder if it's going to be bigger this year than it normally is because a lot of people couldn't go to d.c. before and now you can just watch from your house and participate. >> well, i think that's the silver lining. so much has happened during covid, obviously the pandemic, you know, it's affected our lives in many different ways. buff there has been opportunities to expand reach and so when it comes to the march for life usually you are seeing hundreds of thousands of
4:45 am
people marching in washington, d.c. standing up for the voiceless. the opportunity to do so while we are spread apart in our homes. the spirit is still what connects us. so, you are absolutely right. people will be able to tune in virtually around the nation, actually around the world and so in that way although the march for life has done a fabulous job of pivoting kind of last minute. there still is an opportunity to unite around this idea of life. because that's really what unites us. we all are breathing breath. we all are on borrowed time. the idea of is what unite us and fighting for justice for all lives in a time of fighting for justice. we need to understand that to be pro-justice truly is to be pro-life as well. ainsley: that's true. >> from the womb to the tomb. ainsley: moot not agree on politics but all alive living in this great country together. i know your wife is one of the keynote speakers. you are speaking as well. have you all written your speeches and what are you going to say? >> we have. i'm so happy, you know, it's really fun to do things with your wife. especially when she is better at
4:46 am
everything than you are. and much more beautiful. so, i'm excited about that and i think part of our message is that life unites us and understanding that in this time of seeking justice, we need to do three things, i think, as a community that is to do justice, to love kindness and mercy. and to walk humbly before god. god has to give us a wisdom in how to encounter. then also between men and women there are specific challenges we love to give to both. from my wife to give challenges to women that they are worth fighting for. that they have inherent value and beauty and dignity and for the men channeling them that you know what? we have a role to play in this. so many would say men this is not your issue. that's false. of the challenge to men is to step into that role and to be the husband's fathers, caretakers that god has called them to be. and that they are capable of being. ainsley: i know there is one thing that you are better at than your wife and that's playing football i would imagine. and you are going to be watching the super bowl and your former teammate tom brady is going to be playing. what's your message to him and what's your prediction?
4:47 am
>> you know, halfway through the season people were writing him off. got blown out by a couple teams and i was like you know what that guy that i know that guy that is tenacious. the guy that competes all the time. i can't wait to see that guy. i know that guy is still there. look it, 43 years old tom brady is still the top of his game. he has the chance to make history going tore seven super bowls. not only that has the chance to prevent another team chiefs going back-to-back. the last team to do that was the 2003-2004 patriots. there are a lot of story lines here i'm just excited for him and his family. he made a bold move and obviously one of the best in the game but one of the best people you will ever meet as well. ainsley: you are a great guy too, bebb. we wish you are the best today. we want to watch the march for life it's march for life.org, right? >> yes, ma'am. march for life.org. go on there. all the information is there. you can check it out. ainsley: good deal. thanks, ben. hand it over to janice dean she has your weekend forecast. happy friday my friend.
4:48 am
janice: happy friday. it's cold. the coldest day of the season has arrived and that's setting things up for maybe some snow as we head into the weekend and early next week. let's take a look at it. this is sunday, monday, into tuesday. locks like measurable snow in around the new york city area. recalling new york city and boston. the other big story is the incredible amounts of rain and mountain snow that continue to move in to the west. a good news situation because it's going to help the drought. bad news because it's going to bring the potential for flash flooding and mud slides and even avalanche concerns and blizzard conditions over the sierra, nevada. so a bit of a break this weekend. but then we get another on slot of moisture from the specific and that's going to mean very heavy rain and mountain snow for the region. and the rest of the country fairly quiet but as i mentioned ainsley, as we get into early next week, maybe a little bit of snow for hayden to play in. ainsley: she would love that she is already talking about it and your boys, too. thanks, yanice. we have a big show still ahead.

coming. >> is coming soon as early as next week, the same situation to get around the 60 vote threshold in the senate but i don't have any illusions, the democrats are going to use every trick in the playbook and i think they will try to get rid of the filibuster because they have a radical agenda to jam down the throats of the american people and let's talk about unity for a second, unity and healing the joe biden and the democrats say we need is know what they are giving us, they are attempting total control, to silence opposition, silence people like me who stand up and speak out against them and to jam down a radical agenda, jam through a radical agenda without public support, this is dangerous stuff. steve: the robin hood trading apps, stand by for a moment, our

5:10 am
-- steve: too big to fail. >> exactly right and the big hedge funds don't want any real competition, they are fine if they do what they are supposed to do but when they get ideas of their own and that against wall street then they are a threat and need to be shutdown. this shows you like we got this concentration of power in so many industries, on wall street too, they don't want the competition, they want to be in control. ainsley: the component of revenge on wall street and push back when it comes to school board, school board meetings, i want you to open my schools, push back in california, all these schools, change the name in san francisco to cancel abe lincoln and george washington

5:20 am
the f 35 is the most advanced stealth fighter in the world and it is in proximity of iran, that is one reason. the other as you indicated the deal was done post election and that is the stated reason for the pause. my concern is there may be other reasons and i hope not going back to previous policies of the obama/biden administration, as well as israel at this distance and there's been so much progress being made with the abraham accords, the normalization of relationships and among the arabs and israel and what the administration should do is keep the momentum up, let's continue to make that progress and create a broad coalition that stand up against the iranian threat in the
5:21 am
region. i hope this pies is as they indicated doesn't take a close look at it but is not an indication that they are going to keep the arabs at a distance as they did in the previous administration. brian: and go back to the iran deal, among some key democratic senators people keep forgetting that. let's talk about russia, alexei no folly was nearly killed. instead of being the vesting outside russia went back knowing he would be arrested but he has posted some videos of the opulent lifestyle in huge mansions and compounds, getting under vladimir putin's skin, they had to risk thousands of people last weekend, protesting for his release. how worried do you think vladimir putin is? >> vladimir putin has always been paranoid. most dictators are. he has been in power for 20
5:22 am
years, extended his rain for another 16 years. any opponent of his he attempts to undermine, we are painfully and tragically aware, he attempts to kill him as he did with navalny. he returned to russia knowing full well he was likely to be arrested. he's an inspiration to the russian people. what is happening, his popularity is declining dramatically because of the economy and the mishandling of the covid-19 response. and they are fed up with vladimir putin's out of reach and encourage shinzo in syria and belarus where he has a rotational troops and what he has been doing ukraine. all of this is coming home to roost with him and navalny is enormously popular,

5:24 am
enormous pressure on them, more than he was elected four years ago and reelected in january. the pressure is on, military intimidation on a daily basis. i don't think it is imminent, that he will take military action, but the likelihood of it is definitely rising and here is the problem. the chinese have more ships, more airplanes in the region and more long-range missiles, more military -- we have got to not only help taiwan with military equipment than the trump administration is doing in the biden administration continuing to do, to make sure xi gets the message, it will impose significant cost on it and that
5:25 am
is deterrence, that is credible and something we've got to get about doing sooner rather than later. steve: taiwan will fight back. not the time to cut the defense budget but i think they will. general jack keane, thanks so much. the general handles the world. breakfast with friends is on the menu with some good old southern cooking. we will go up close and personal with will cain who is getting to eat for free.

>> incompetent government kills people. more people died than needed to die in covid-19 and that is the truth which incompetent government can kill people. this is not a joke and more people died here than needed to. ainsley: incompetent government kills people. judge janine. is here. deadly lies, call on nursing homes, the numbers were not the same as cuomo's numbers. he is underreporting the deaths. >> the crazy part is it is worse than we thought it was and when he talks about incompetent government killing people, you are the essence of incompetent
5:39 am
government or the so-called leader who doesn't care about people or administrative directive requiring covid-19 infected patients come back into nursing homes and was a death sentence for all the people in the nursing home who were patients and the covid-19 infected people and all the while this is going on he's involved in this entertainment show with his brother on cnn, he is writing a book about how wonderful he is calling it leadership, how he is successfully driving the pandemic out of new york, what a bunch of baloney because new york was the epicenter of the virus, had the highest number of deaths compared to any state in the union and wants to blame it on government, you are the government, you are the one killing people, you are the one
5:40 am
who unnecessarily required people to go into a nursing home and when he was called on it he blames donald trump. he also gets an enemy. he was so nervous he knew what was going on, he knew what was going on so he writes a book about himself, gets involved in all the pr stuff women are signing over him, all this nonsense, because he knew what he was confronting. we have governor desantis in florida who got involved in making sure there were early warning signals, everybody knew what was going on, went to the most vulnerable in society and who should we vaccinate first,
5:41 am
got to vaccinate people in the nursing home first and it gets worse because after all this happened he signed a law giving immunity to those hospital administrators, in the unity for civil and criminal responsibility for their actions, not only negligent but will reckless which is worse than negligent. brian: the attorney general is a democrat, he is saying we have to get to the bottom of this. andrew cuomo is not speaking to senator schumer, who is he speaking to? he refuses to accept responsibility and his warring with people in his own party because there is no room in his ego for somebody else. here's a little of the antics you have missed because you watch somebody instead of chris cuomo. >> is a true this was the actual

swab that was being used? >> some say i shouldn't come on this show because you harass me. >> what a pat on the back? >> do you think you are an attractive person because you are single and ready to mingle? >> beauty is in the eye of the beholder. >> listen to you. you have an answer for everything. >> talk about ego. this is pathetic. our own janice dean, her mother-in-law and father-in-law in a nursing home, not only -- he finds out they passed and this guy is so arrogant. the answer who is he talking to his himself in the mirror. he is so arrogant that he cannot respond to any of the questions and when questioned why this
5:43 am
happened, why did you send covid-19 infected patients back to nursing homes and they all ended up dying his answer is trump made him do it but what he did, he belittled and ridiculed the question. he was too mizzy -- busy to make an answer. there has to be a grand jury investigation. you got to ask why is he giving his buddies the opportunity to cover up there in aptitude and incompetence? at the least, he should be guilty for malpractice. this is worse, one person dying after another and the pandemic is no excuse. brian: they have recall elections for gavin newsom but they can't by new york state rules. you mentioned janice dean on your weekend show and who else?
5:44 am
>> janice dean and congresswoman -- dan bondgino, we will analyze and prosecute and talk about all the failures of the system, it didn't have to happen. shame on government and he wants to blame government. brian: thank you. we will be watching this weekend. coming up ahead, robin hood forced to reinstate game stop shares on its platform following backlash like this. >> one of the most remarkable, shocking robberies in the history, in plain sight, robin hood. steve: more where that came from. barstow founder and president dave fortnoy.

5:49 am
wealthy, but restricted every day traders or investors from buying shares of companies like game stop and amc. >> that sparked an uproar from washington to wall street forcing robin hood to reopen game stop trading. barstow sports founder dave fortnoy schooling the move as criminal. >> the way they have cheated, stolen, robbed every day people, so billionaire friends didn't get out and not get killed, one of the most shocking robberies in history in plain sight. steve cohen, the mets owner, jail, they have to go, there have to be class-action lawsuits.
5:50 am
steve: that was dave earlier in the day and earlier we saw dave fortnoy with tucker and today we will find out what is going to play out. what was the one thing you realized this is as corrupt as it gets? >> nobody has given the example in the history of the stock market. those stocks would crash the price. that is exactly what they did and people holding those stocks, not just readit but small group of wall street -- they were every day people, normal 9-5 people, they were aware of it and they got cheated. steve: did you have money in this? >> i did. i had amc, i am fine with losing
5:51 am
it and other people, they got cheated at robbed to protect hedge funds. no other explanation. steve: a lot of daytraders bought that basket of stocks feeling it would be a good thing, the same things that were shorted by wall street, bidding against that would go down and the small investor thinking it is a good stock and it went up, game stop went up 1000%. so many of those people and stuff like that say to themselves it is a good way to make money and how many said it is a good way to stick it to the hedge funds shorting these american companies. >> the guys who started, sticking to these hedge funds,
5:52 am
but they were trying to -- i don't think it is fundamental but this is a viral trend. with the old guard doesn't want to accept, adapt or die. on wall street and the power of people coming to gather. the rules we are playing under change. >> the ceo of robin hood, just to find out what his reason for doing this was, why did he do it? his explanation. >> we did not do this at the direction of a cash fund in order to protect our customers, we had to limit buying in these stocks. i know how clorox felt in the
5:53 am
pandemic, we just happened seen this level of concentrated interest, >>, he was protecting his clients. they should have frozen the market. shouldn't have been able to buy or sell it whatever you have to have. they crashed the market and took the money from it. steve: i want you to hear thereat and tell me if you think they are living up to it. >> remember when greed was good? when you had to look the part and had to pay for a seat at the table? we set out to change it, the weight system worked, to put
5:54 am
power in everyone's hands. we all invest every day in ourselves, our community and our future. we are all invested. steve: did they live up to that ad q >> robin hood is supposed to steal from the rich and did from the poor, they did the opposite and we find out selling information to the hedge fund. it is criminal and what actually happened, not to protect their clients to get out of here, how stupid do they think we are? steve: $1 billion worth of equity and investors, they had the liquidity problem. listen to this guy, leon
5:55 am
cooperman, the way he is so dismissive of these little investors, is shocking, listen to this. >> the reason the market is doing what it is doing, getting checks from the government, that is the concept. it is a way of attacking wealthy people and it is inappropriate to work together and pull together. steve: they are attacking wealthy people. these people who are day trading, trying to do that in a pandemic, they are playing by the rules but unfortunately the rules in wall street are for wall street, not main street. >> he has a violin and the tissue. when i started day trading and they were falling on the strain, leading them to distraction. all we thought was to make money
5:56 am
so they changed the rules, it is unfair that people are attacking the rich. it is really hard to feel bad for lee whatever his last name is. ainsley: you are doing a lot to save these restaurants, to play these soundbites, you raised $33 million, 207,000 supporters, business supporters, almost 200 of those. the business owner helped by barstool, watch this. >> wondering how we were going to pay the bills and we found out about barstool and the call from dave was the breath we needed. >> 2 or 3 days later - >> i wish i could give them the biggest hug ever. ainsley: how does it make you feel?
5:57 am
>> everybody involved on our end, i appreciate everyone who donated, i do it all day long. every time i hang out with a new business owner, you see the stress wash away and helping as much as we can, there is no doubt it has been gratifying. steve: what is maddening is these democratic governors with a democratic president realizing the numbers are down, let's open up. some of the pain and suffering is politically oriented and unnecessary. >> is one of the things i said about the barstool fund from the beginning, it should unify, white, black, girl, man,
5:58 am
everyone should want to help small business. the more you can help the better it is. steve: this is personal to you because for a while you were doing the pizza reviews and that is why our refrigerator is full of paul newman's four cheese pizza at this hour. it warms up quick in the convection oven but your camera guy has a family in the pizza business and you heard firsthand what these guys are going through. >> frank borelli's 4-year-old pizza place in nassau county, how is your dad doing, as the pandemic moved along, what is the best way to do that, has
5:59 am
been before the business on the verge of going out of business so together we put on a program the way it exists now, not only a one side payment but every month as longs the pandemic goes on, just a brick to go back to what we are doing when this is done. ainsley: we all want to do things like this and don't know where to start. thank you for being bold enough and brave enough and helping these families but thanks for keeping us laughing. if you are not following him on our barstool or instagram. steve: by the way, elon musk a year ago said you should run for president. what do you think? president or l presidente? >> i would rather jump off a bridge. steve: you could make him happy and give to the barstool fund, $33 million, keep it going, so many business will need help. thanks for getting up with us,
6:00 am
we appreciate it. dave fortnoy with barstool. i believe that is all-time we have. i could buy some from dana. ainsley: everyone have a great weekend.
