[applause] ♪ ♪ and you go, go, are go. ♪ until you hear a bad. brian: attention all broadway actors, time to get back to work. put on your costumes and wear your makeup and be prepared to entertain us from now until the end of time overpriced tickets theaters way too small and seats no longer fit us because we have gotten to be way too big people. ainsley: what are you talking about. brian: broadway is back. ainsley: so excited. brian: a bit of a rush to open up the state and city quicker so
3:02 am
we will forget about all of his troubles. ainsley: traffic is already back. new york is coming back. brian: little by little just in case you don't know while everyone was at home, they painted bike lanes right on the -- where we used to park. so now they are zooming down where people are walking and then you now park in the middle of the street and they took another lane away from the bidsiest city in america. that's what happens when you have a flower child as mayor of new york city. ainsley: how many times have you almost been taken out? brian: unbelievable. steve: when the taxi drops us off in front of the building you open the door and you think okay, the curb is right over there about 10 feet but that's where the bike lane guys go. ainsley: not just bikes what are these things. ainsley: electric scooters those things are fast. brian: not getting exercise hopping on electric scooter and pretending that's exercise. it's not exercise. get a bike. ainsley: most of america can't relate to this, brian. brian has almost been taken out
3:03 am
by electric scooter. brian: that's last time i will be allowed to say hello. ainsley: exactly. steve: welcome to our tuesday telecast. big news yesterday because he got so much blowback from his progressive left wing yesterday joe biden did a complete 180 when it comes to the annual refugee admission camps. when you look at what they have been over the last year or so, touring the trump administration, he had lowered them to 15,000 and keep in mind, refugees are people -- we're not talking about migrants. we are talking about people who flee their country because they are forced from their home armed conflict if persecution. under trump 15,000 allowed. biden came out couple weeks ago it's going to be 15,000. there was such blowback yesterday he raised it to 6 thousand and vows by the end of '22 it looks as if they are going to have 125,000 which he says would be hard to actually get. to say.
3:04 am
ainsley: i will tell you why he can this. he is bowing down to these progressives. as you said, steve, the democrats were slamming him for his decision to cap it at 15,000. ainsley: you have aoc she said completely and utterly unacceptable. unyouhave jayapal. president biden has broken his promise to restore our humanity and it senator dick durbin said say it ain't so, president joe. brian: 6 now, east asia, 5 now, latin america, 4,000 from europe and central arab. asia. there was no pandemic i would are very little problem with this. they are screened and going through 9 process the right way. if you want to change those rules, go ahead and do it and debate it and come out of committee and we will take a look at it if you do this properly, through the refugee system, i wonder the big picture why the president is so afraid
3:05 am
of far left extreme by definition. in the big picture, if you have an organized process, america welcomes refugees in the big picture. steve: right. brian: what i'm worried about is what is happening on our southern border is the chaos and the administration doesn't seem to have any interest in caring. ainsley: brian, you are right, this is a free country, we want people to come in here they want them to do it the right way so they are paying taxes. what's hard is when you see the keystone pipeline and people out of work when you know taxes are going up. brian: good point. ainsley: people aren't going back to work because they are getting paid money from the government and restaurants now saying we cannot open full time because we can't get employees back. in it's disheartening to know so many people out of work or struggling to get people back to work and they can't pay their bills then be they now have to pay for other individuals who aren't doing it the right way. if they are a refugee and you
3:06 am
are in dire straits and being persecuted, come in but do the right way so have you on the books and you can help contribute to this amazing country. steve: we are not talking about a lot of people so far. while the trump number was 15,000 according to the latest data as of march only 2,000 refugees had been admitted to the united states. only 2,000. the problem is this. when joe biden looked at the number and he said let's make it 15,000, i know, i know, i know, donald trump had 15,000. and then the blowback because all of these progressives were saying joe, come on, have you got to go big. have you got to be bold, joe. and essentially the president went against the advice of the top foreign policy advisers including the secretary of state anthony blinken did not want him to change the number but he did. what is going on behind the scenes is the fact that the people in the government who operate and handle this is the office of refugee resettlement. they are responsible for the refugees. and do you know who else they
3:07 am
are responsible for? the children on our southern border. do you know what? they are kind of busy right now. that is a big part of the problem why the number was going to be so small in year. brian: distraction it should all be about the southern border. you have 2200 a day come on the rio grande sector. 1600 over in arizona some places in arizona. this is a crisis, a catastrophe, 41 plus days you can't get the vice president down there. the vice president has no interest in going. is he pretending like it's not a catastrophe. it is. meanwhile, this is an example of an immigrant at work. ainsley: did it the right way. brian: born in communist albania shared his personal experience about an hour ago. >> we had to escape albania because it was a communist country and settled in a refugee camp. after that we were subjected to that so make sure that we proved our identity we didn't commit
3:08 am
any crimes. we were not wanted. then we had to undergo medical examinations and interviewed by u.s. embassy and eventually came to the united states. anyone who doesn't go through that process doesn't understand the importance and the significance of being an american because when you come to the united states as a refugee, you come here for the americanism. you don't come here because of the benefits that they would offer you. we have diluted that significance of coming to the united states. steve: so, ultimately, what is going on behind the scenes is while his advisers said that number, 15,000, is appropriate for this year there was such blow back it goes to show what a political animal joe biden is. there was so much blowback from his left flank he caved and now it's a much bigger number. ainsley: trump's historical low numbers did not reflect the values of this nation. these new admission caps will expand the nation's capacity to
3:09 am
admit refugees. brian: if you want to take one word that doesn't belong with leadership, definitive leadership. it's probably, probably. if you say should something happen? probably. should it not happen? probably not. that is showing no leadership, no spine. that's exactly the phrase that joe biden is using when it comes to reopening our schools which he claimed when he was a candidate and a few appearances he made from his basement and from parking lots that he would make it a priority. get our kids back in school. and yesterday, showing a total tone deafness, he actually went to a school, then talked about the need to open up schools. yet, if he really wanted to show a spine, he would have stood up to the teachers union who represents millions of teachers around the country who said we are not quite ready yet. biden 78 years old having been through what he has been through you should say no, there is right and wrong despite the millions have you given the democratic party and me specifically, the right thing to do is open up schools. here he is yesterday in a
3:10 am
grammar school talking about the need to believe it or not open up schools and you can't even guarantee they will open up in september. >> safely reopen a majority of the k through 8 schools was one of my top priorities in my first 100 days. because there is so much that happens when they don't have the certitude and the companionship and familiarity to be with their friends. they are all our children and they're the kite strings that lift our -- we have to invest in them. invest in the children invest in the future. ainsley: he went to work town and community college with dr. biden. this elementary school he visited open four days a week. they clean the school on wednesday so kids don't go there the president asked the children what do you think about virtual learning and and based on their answers he might have regretted asking that out of the mouths of babes. listen.
3:11 am
>> when we're really tired we take a little nap. >> sometimes paying attention, can you eat; steve: no, it was terrible. those kids are brilliant. next time we have something we don't want to talk, about let's pretend the mic doesn't work just like that. that's what the kids were revealing about how they were able to use this virtual setting to their benefit during these pandemic times. ainsley, you mentioned he was at the tide water community college where he was talking about the $100 billion proposal to give everybody who wants it free community college for two years. and he joked he was advocating for community college because he was married to a community college professor. jill biden is an english will
3:12 am
professor at novad, northern virginia community college. he says i have to admit if i didn't have these positions i would be sleeping in the lincoln bedroom. ainsley: do you think anyone raised their hands we should group out of school until you implement this? steve: give my parents money. brian: if he cared about the kids he would demand they open up the schools set. more concerned about the 2. million and the. 3.7 million in 2020. for joe biden, if you want to know why has caved to the teachers union because he cares about. 2 million to a pro-biden super pac and it teachers union liberal groups to 2019 and 2020. the communication revealed that the cdc was consulting with teachers unions on what they should say about opening up schools. we're losing a generation of kids and is he pretending like he cares about those kids. he doesn't. it's all words it no action. it is -- it's sinful that these kids aren't back in school like
3:13 am
they have proven to be effective in places like florida and texas and will south carolina and most of north carolina and long island new york they go back to school they make adjustment and plexiglass. others have to sit there some in a class while their teachers are on zoom because their teachers union is shielding for them. they said here is all this money to get your school ready, they took the money, they are not getting their schools ready 3 feet apart is not good enough for them. even though the cdc came out with that they want 6 feet apart. you can't do that in a lot of these inner city schools. the kids that need it the most are forced to stay at home. the parents who can least afford it can are forced to stay at home with their kids. they cared about the kids and parents. he would stop demanding higher taxes and stop demanding all these things and instead put the process back to, would. he wrote a check for money on an account where there is no money to get these schools back up and running. and they are not up and running. and he sat there in front of those kids and acted like he was
3:14 am
working on their best behalf. he has left kids in america at their doorstep because he cares more about the union. ainsley: he plays both sides. apieces the teachers union and says i'm ready to get you back. in 30% hybrid or virtual still. 67% in person daily. brian: guaranteed in september. you future infrastructure three years down the line. all this spending he asks for in the future. can't guarantee september. he should have guaranteed september of 2020. steve: here is the problem for him messaging wise. all the networks showed him at a school. some schools are letting out in may. so if he want to get the message out, that's what they did yesterday. if you tuned in and watched the mainstream media coverage, it was very positive about what joe biden is doing. brian: by the way if you are a democratic parent and your kid is not in school you are not buying that anybody who has a
3:15 am
grand kid correctly or indirectly family member or cousin you are not buying that york town appearance yesterday. ainsley: people are upset about that. upset how law enforcement is being treated. bill mellugan. we just hired him. brian: i know you signed his paperwork this morning. ainsley: i approved it he obtained this video pretty compelling. it shows this driver calling a deputy who pulls this person over for being on phone while she was driving. routine traffic stop. she calls him a murderer, mexican and racist. listen to this. he got it on video. >> the speed limit is 40 and i was going 38. the why are you harassing me. >> you are correct because i pulled you over. >> because you are a murderer. >> you were on your cell phone. >> i was recording you so you are giving me a cell phone ticket? is that why you are harassing me?
3:16 am
>> it's not harassment i am enforcing the law, ma'am. >> i have a right to record the police when they're harassing me. >> by all means you can't do it while you are driving. >> i'm perfectly legal and i'm a teacher, so there. >> congratulations. >> you are a murderer. >> it cite you for using your cell phone while you are driving, that's it? >> for him being a mexicoist. racist? what is that had name? here did you go mexican racist. you will always be a mexican. you will never be white. do you know that right? steve: that is just terrible. brian: as bad as it gets. steve: not only do the county deputies have county issued body cams but he actually had his own personal one. that is video. bill mellugin. fox news knows the identity of that woman in the car and we have asked her for a statement she has not responded. what's interesting will that
3:17 am
woman according to the sheriff's department, that woman has called in to internal affairs right after that and made a complaint against him. but the department says the woman has a history of making false claims against the department the sheriff out there had this to say about by being able to see the video, we know what these officers encounter every day. here's the sheriff out there. >> if she represents her profession, is that an indictment on her profession, the caliber of people? because you have george floyd some people want to label the entire profession as if everyone was a derek chauvin. this shows you that it racism comes in all colors and all ages. and proof of that right there. if you want to call all of the deputies murderers, unfortunately, you are doing exact same thing which you are accusing other people of doing against your own. brian: do you want to know why they can't fill up the academies across the country and retirements are through the roof
3:18 am
or homicides are beyond your imagination. all those things can be captured right there. who want to put up with that type of abuse on a daily basis when you are factor in those risks? steve: crazy. and she said she was a teacher. and that's why the sheriff is talking about her profession right at the top. ainsley: i hate that people think that about police officers. and i hate that police officers some of them have to go on the job by themselves. this is just an example. if that were my husband out there or if that were me, i would want to have a partner with me at all times. brian: carley shimkus will not have a partner with her. she is committed to anchoring the news herself, right, carley? carley: with the three of you. brian: going to watch. ainsley: there is no i in team, brian. brian: that's right, yet. carley: 20 people are dead after a train derails in mexico city. the overnight wreck also injuring at least 70 people. officials say a support beam

brian: florida governor ron desantis lifts all remaining covid-19 restrictions. the executive order prohibits schools, local governments and businesses from requiring people to show proof of vaccination as well. ainsley: this as new york, new jersey, and connecticut are set to lift most of the covid-19 restrictions on may 19th. offices and restaurants, museums, the theaters no longer going to be subject to capacity limits. steve: in new jersey, when you
3:26 am
show that you have gotten the shot, you are going to get a shot beer. you get an actual beer if you get vaccinated however in new york state governor cuomo says if they don't show proof of vaccination will still have to maintain 6 feet of social distancing. in oregon we told you the governor out there, kate brown has reimposed severe limits, 15 of oregon's counties are extreme risk of controversies. she has banned indoor dining, reduced capacity at gyms and entertainment venues and for a lot of business people had t. just not make sense it flies in the face of common sense. that is why out in baker city, oregon, they listened to the business people there and they say you know, the governor just doesn't make sense. let's make our town a common sense sanctuary and that, ainsley and brian is what they are doing in baker city, oregon. a common sense sanctuary.
3:27 am
sounds like a nice place to visit. ainsley: over the oppressive covid lockdowns listen to this. this is the mayor of baker city. >> we are declaring a safety emergency. we are saying that these lockdowns and these mandates are hurting our people more than the virus. hopefully, if this resolution spreads like wildfire across oregon, which it seems to be doing, the people who realize that the power has always been with them. i mean, if you think about it, if all of these businesses that are facing lockdowns open up at once, there is no physical way for osha to be able to police that system. these businesses either have to just go out with a whimper and shut their doors or they have to fight back. and we have been backed into a corner by the governor. we have a legislature that has done nothing all year. they need to look at her powers and take them back. and as a result, we have a governor who keeps giving herself more and more power. ainsley: so ron desantis down in florida he said, you know, i don't understand these states, these individuals washington, for instance, that is saying get vaccinated but you still have to
3:28 am
social distancing and you still have to wear your mask. he says that's sending the wrong message telling people what's the point of sticking something in your arm if you still have to follow the same rules that you did before? brian: right, for example, the governor every day in new york proves that he has no idea about business because he has been on the political doll his entire life. ainsley: governor of new york? brian: governor of new york would be governor cuomo, still as of now. he lifted restrictions okay you can go to bars and restaurants. he has not limited the 6 feet. he said it's not fully reopen. doesn't help restaurants you can't have 6 feet distancing and comply 100 percent occupancy until social distancing requirements are lifted the vast majority of restaurants won't have 100 percent indoor capacity. on top of that, when you go to -- when you go to open up if you don't allow people to be able to go up and walk around, and you be able to put people in their proper seats, in other words, if you can't put your tables in there, the place will look packed but they are not going to have their capacity.
3:29 am
and the other things they have a problem with is because they give so much money here is to get people to actually work in these restaurants. steve: brian, you are absolutely right. we had a restaurant owner on yesterday who said essentially it's a math problem. because if they lift the capacity 25% to 50%, because everything is 6 feet apart you only have a certain amount of square footage in a restaurant. things are already maxed out at 25% they have got it it's impossible for them to get more people in because have you got to be 6 feet apart. ainsley: doesn't make sense. if you have a restaurant that only holds 10 tables. those tables can't move. you can't add on 6 feet here and there. brian: right. ainsley: doesn't matter if they raise the percent tapping of people that can come in your restaurant because you still have the same amount of space. brian: cdc told us not everyone pays attention to the cdc. said it's only 3 feet. couple months ago only 3 feet. let's digress.

3:36 am
they saw clearly as the banner says we are talking about somebody involved in hate crimes. and they are going what exactly do you have to do in new york state to get arrested and stay in jail? >> that's the big question, steve. it's very easy to get caught up in hate crime target ago synagogue or community. we have to remember this person is free not because of some quirk in the system or the luck of the draw or a bad judge or bad prosecutor. this guy is free today and will be out on the streets by design. he is free because of the bail reform law put in place by governor andrew cuomo and the radical democrats who took over albany. and, unfortunately, this is the kind of thing that democrats that are aligned with the far left will do in every municipality in every state where they control power. steve: yeah. joe, we should point out the first judge in this case actually set bail for him, which is great. because, you know, all those
3:37 am
crimes, alleged crimes, second judge came in and said you know, you can't really do that under the new laws we have got let him go and sprang him. >> right. you know, here you have a lone wolf judge, crazy to thing that this is a bad guy who tried to person this person who was accused of 4 separate hate crime incidents away behind bars. it's just so hypocritical in general how much lip service the democrats pay to hate crimes. they like to say they stand with the community. they like to say they are tough. but they had one opportunity. when they made this law, they chose deliberately not to have hate crimes included in this statute. so the judges have no discretion. the judges have no choice. and the reason we have judges to use that discretion doesn't exist in new york state for this. steve: the lead editorial this morning at the "new york post" is give back new york judges power to require bail for clear threat to public safety. there has got to be some discretion on the part of the judge. because, after all, they are a judge. they can figure out what's right
3:38 am

number he got a nice round of applause for maybe they were surprised by the answer because it wasn't true. he overstated how many americans are immunized he said and he had to walk this back. he said 230 million. no he misstated both his promise and the results accord together a.p. fact checker. biden confused the number of shots administered with the number of people vaccinated. 148 million people. received. 160 have been fully vaccinated not 230. just keep in mind, too. if he should carry marry the governor of alabama's press conferences or mississippi, or perhaps ron desantis over in florida, he would know we're not waiting until the end of the summer, if he even carried governor cuomo and all his pomposity and his press conferences may 19th. we are not waiting until the end of the summer. my question is he pushing the
4:09 am
goal post down or did he just get confused again? steve: well, you know, brian to that point. you just read the a.p. fact check that's quite a brush back. brian: huge. steve: you would think they wouldn't like to do that when he said 230 million people had been vaccinated when it's closer to 106 million fully vaccinated. he also made the mistake when he said yesterday that anyone making less than $400,000 a year will not pay a single penny in taxes. he meant to say not a single penny more in taxes. so, maybe having an off day. it's interesting though, axios this morning is talking a little bit about where we're going to go next when it comes to the vaccination program. because right now if you watch the news yesterday, there were a number of stories about how because there is such vaccine hesitancy, we may never get to herd immunity. what that means is that the coronavirus is just going to be out there with variants forever, maybe, unless more people get
4:10 am
shots. so now apparently the next phase is to lean on employers and churches and organized groups to try to get people who work at places or go to church to get the shot there. because, according to the polls, nearly a quarter of americans are more likely to get the vaccine if it's at work. and why would that be? well, because it's handy. it's right there. going to work? i'm going to get a shot it's like the flu shot we all get. ainsley: exactly. president biden went toe a school yesterday, actually two. he went to an elementary school down in virginia answered went to a community college and he said even though his administration is saying we probably will open in the summer but we are not really sure, he did say reopening schools his top priority. listen. >> safely reopen a majority of the k through 8 schools was one of my top priorities in my first 100 days. because there is so much that

maybe, probably, in the fall, kids will go back in school. when they should have been back in school in september. and he pledged for that to happen. when he finally takes over. he has no urgency to get there jen psaki is doing all types of back flips in order not to say it. if a kid goes to school once a week it counts. explosive story over the weekend in the "new york post" and freedom of information request of the cdc communicating with the teachers union on the language to use about reopening schools so they don't look bad. and they actually take verbatim what the union is telling the cdc and put it in the science report on when it's safe to go back to school which just goes to show you how corrupt the situation is. and how subservient the democratic party is to a group of people, the teachers unions that represents 1.8 million teachers minimum. so some of the major cities, they are giving in to the unions because they gave over 40 million to democratic causes.
4:13 am
you would think the president of the united states at 78 years old. after everything he has been through. who is supposed to be the leader of the free world would be able to stand up to a group of teachers because he cares about kids. don't go a grammar school and say you care about those kids because you don't because your actions don't reveal you don't have the courtroom to stand up to unions and those letters are not opinion. these are exchanges. check it out on the "new york post." the actual letters and interactions between the union and the cdc to give us the science report. it is sickening. ainsley: the teachers unions are steering the science. steve: follow the science. follow the union is what they are really cooking. meanwhile, you know, as ainsley said, they went to two schools, one a community college and then they also went to a fifth grade class. when it comes to message control. because they are very careful about what they want to talk about every day and they are very careful about who says it
4:14 am
and things like that. okay, so you have got a fifth grade class there, right? everybody is enclosed in plexiglass. and then the president and first lady did an ad-lib and asked the kids what liked and didn't like about virtual learning. when they weren't in the classroom. and you know, this was supposed to be positive. but ultimately, it backfired a bit. here's some of the kids telling the president and first lady about what it is like when they're at home on zoom. >> when we are really tired then we can take a little nap. [laughter] >> yeah. >> sometimes it will you could eat. ainsley: out of the mouths of babes. they probably regretted asking
4:15 am
them. should have prescreened and picked out the ones they liked their answers. steve: what are you going to say? and write it down for the kids to say. brian: 10,000 public school districts with strong teachers unions substantially less likely to reopen because of these unions, those kids are speaking the truth. do you know they could actually tell the truth in greater numbers how i don't see my friends, depression going to show and lack of cognitive ability that will be revealed and hurt our economy in the future and then individually right away? they have to have a plan b to get these kid some extra school to make up the distance but after this story, i'm not convinced there is even a willingness to do that. and for president biden not to commit to september saying i can't see the future he saw the future and asked for $4 trillion for infrastructure. if the vaccine works which i believe you told us it does. september should be free and clear. the kids don't carry the virus.

spruced the suggestion that they're going to have diversity training after a video went viral showing some high school students laughing as they shouted the "n" word. then what happened? >> well, our school district convened a district diversity council comprised of 60 parents and community members. and they met together to talk about ideas about how our school district could respond to this issue. and, in theory, it was a really great idea. unfortunately we had a handful of administrators in the school district that decided to push down into the plan some really radical ideas and that's when parents really revolted and said we don't want this kind of radical divisive policy taught to our kids. steve: in fact, this comes at the same time where all across the country as you know, hannah, people are talking about, you know, they are teaching critical race theory in my kid's school and i don't like it but what can i do? obviously down in south lake, they had something they could do. they installed you and another member who are against it.
4:26 am
>> exactly. you know, it's really important for parents around the country to know they are not alone. when we started this battle last august, we paired up with like-minded parents around the country. i was on conference calls with parents from all over america who are fighting the same thing. so it's important for people to know that they can ban together and they can make change. we really educated our community about what critical race theory was, why it's so bad for our kids and why we don't want it in our district. then we started doing a lot of investigative work. we asked for open records requests from the district. we used foia to really find out what our district was doing and that empowered us with information that we could then use to fight against it. steve: one of the reasons we were, hannah and i were talking during the commercial, one of the reasons some people, i think three times more people showed up for the polls on saturday than in the last election, is because people in your town, you told me, were tired of hearing

but she was one of those older names. ainsley: ruth is a family name for us. brian: i think gladys is going to make acom back. steve: -- a comeback. steve: when is the united states going to make a comeback? yesterday joe biden and the first lady went to yorktown, and among other things, she appeared at that elementary school in that fifth grade room and talked a little bit to the children behind the plexiglas. you'll hear what they had to say about virtual learning in a moment. nonetheless, the administration did what they've been doing, they moved the goalpost. you know, earlier today we talked to you about they have moved the goalpost regarding refugee caps, now they're moved the goalpost when it comes to school reopening. remember, he said you elect me, and i will reopen the schools, a majority, within the first 100
5:03 am
days. that did not happen. and now they're talking about when exactly everything's going to reopen. and you know what, ainsley and brian? it was very telling because it's impossible to script children. because even if you scripted the children, they would not follow the script because they're children. ainsley: children are so honest, out of the mouths of babes. it reminds me of that commercial when the kid tells his mom, why are your kids yellow? i don't think joe biden and dr. biden were expecting these answers. i think they wanted it to be more positive. but the majority of the kids were either telling why they loved virtual learning for reasons that they shouldn't get away with, for things they shouldn't be doing, or they said they didn't like it. listen to this. >> when you're really tired, you can take a nap. [laughter] >> sometimes you could eat -- [laughter]
5:04 am
>> cent like virtual. >> you didn't? >> no. >> i liked it. brian: so you got one person who said they liked it. ainsley: they can eat, they can nap, they can tell their teachers the microphone's not working. brian: we're talking about a decision by school districts not to put kids in school when others have proved it's totally effective, and there's a huge downside because. kids are forced to go on to zoom and learn, and they just can't do it. i know i have a direct relationship with high school kids, and they say it's a joke. you basically do whatever you want. there were kids who just sit there with the textbook in their lap and they just take the test while they're pretending the look down, they're getting all the answers. on average, kids are losing five months of learning when you go a whole year when you do vir hull learning. and why? 10,000 public school districts
5:05 am
across the country, places with strong teachers unions, were statistically and substantially less likely to reopen their doors x. why would that be? because the democratic party, and there's a democratic administration, has increased the political spending, what they're taking from unions from 4.3 million in 2004 to 43 until 2020. so if someone gives you $43 million and says i think it's, air quotes, too dangerous to send my teachers back to school even though you know that's not true and the cdc says it's not true, there's 43 million reasons why they say we'll keep them closed. and guess what? the problem is before rochelle walensky realizes her cdc directorship was a political position, she said that schools can safely reopen. and when jen psaki heard that last month, oh, she was just speaking for herself. ainsley: yeah. 67% of the schools are in person, but 33% of them are
5:06 am
either hybrid or virtual. that's a third of our kids. steve: well, and dr. fauci said the same thing. you know, we don't need to vaccinate all of the teachers. and what did, what have we heard for the last year? follow the science. and it all started with two weeks of flatten the curve, and that turned out to be a year as it all turned out. well, now, you know, over the last year we've heard the schools, the unions say things like they're not going back until they all get vaccinated. now fast forward, there seems to be an abundance of vaccine. if you want the shot, you pretty much can get it. and to your point, 80% of the teachers have gotten it, but now they're saying, you know, it's just not safe. social instancing, we need a new heating and air-conditioning system here in the school. so just like as we set it this hour up, they've moved the goalpost again. so what exactly will get all the teachers back?
5:07 am
we don't know. ainsley: we interview ared a panel of moms, and this is what they had to say. >> part of what's frustrating about this messaging is that we have increasingly seen that schools can be open safely. we know that in-person learning is dominating virtual learning for kids both learning and mental health. i think this is a crisis. >> in front of a screen for hours is not easy. bottom line is we have to start prioritizing our children, and we have to, you know, make them a priority and not politicize, you know, these schools reopening for one's personal agenda. >> as the leader of this country, joe biden needs to prioritize our children, he needs to tell teachers to get back to work with. if they want to talk the vaccine, they can take the vaccine. but schools need to open now. brian: i bet 90% of the teachers are held hostage by the teachers union. they can't keep their jobs if they go against it, they've got
5:08 am
to pay their fees and sit there and do something twice as hard, teach on zoom. sometimes watching your kids in the classroom while you teach from your home. and if you're a second grade teacher, trying to keep the kids all engaged on laptop or while you're on laptop? it is agonizing. and this randy wine gartner, whatever her name is, she is personally responsible for the lack of education for millions of kids in america because the other million have showed you they can go back to school safely. and how joe biden could sit in front of a classroom and pretend that he cares about those kids when his actions say something totally different and will not even commit to a fall reopening? i find that nauseating. ainsley: teachers got into the business because they love these kids. brian: absolutely. steve: the teachers union, i want to say in california, first they said they all have to get the vaccine, then they said they've got to change the air-conditioning x then they said, you know what? you wants us to go back to work,
5:09 am
we're going to need childcare. wait a minute, that's what all the other people -- brian: remember the big checks? we already gave them in the rescue package of $1.8 trillion. the schools are getting zillions of dollars. and, by the way, we no longer need 6 feet of distance, we need 3 feet of distance. so now the 3-foot rule, and you've got plexiglas. steve: maybe this is something the teachers unions out in california will use to make sure going forward after the pandemic teachers get free childcare if they're going to teach the kids. ainsley: we interviewed a wonderful man, he's a police officer, and he posted this video on tiktok. i think it has, what, almost 2 million views over a three-day period, and he is a public safety officer at morehouse school of medicine down in georgia. and he has just had enough of this temperature with police
5:10 am
officers and people retaliating against police officers. said people used to come up to him and say thank you so much for your service, and now they're shaking their head at him, flipping him off,he said he's just had enough of it. he is fed up. so he posted this video that got everyone's anticipation. watch this. >> i wake up every morning and kiss my family good-bye knowing that there's a possibility i won't come home. i am tired of every time i wake up in the morning there's someone else polarizing the fact that maybe law enforcement is just not a good thing. all of us is not bad. most of us are not. there are bad people in every career! i'm so damn tired, tired! brian: wow. that was very moving and probably a lot of officers watching this right now, retired or active, are saying i know
5:11 am
exactly what he means. and then he tells us he was a marine. so he's been helping people out, defending communities all his life. he also said that his rich with his community is fractured -- his relationship with his community. he was on to join us 25 minutes ago and said this about where this is heading. >> it seems like now that every morning we wake up or every night that we go to sleep there's always something negatively portray thed about law enforcement. it's different. people are frowning at me, people are purposely doing things to get my attention. they're flipping me off of and, again, it was not that way. it's really heartbreaking to me. when i got in law enforcement 20 years ago, it was not that way. i just, honestly, have had enough. my heart was broken because of the things that i saw in just traveling home to my family. and it wasn't always that way. it used to be hi, it used to be
5:12 am
waves, you know, it used to be smiles, somebody saluting you. steve: it used to be, and we also had him react to that video out of l.a. county where the sheriff's deputy goes up and the person just absolutely berates him. he said, look, that happens more often than i care to admit. it's what they face out on the streets. ainsley: sorry to interrupt you, but their jobs were already so tough and so dangerous just dealing with criminals out on the street, and now they have to deem with this? steve: it is, it's terrible. but it is where we are right now. meanwhile, let's talk about this down in washington d.c. the cia is looking for some good people to work for them. and yesterday out on twitter they put out a recruitment video that is being, it is being referred to by critics who are pan being it as woke -- panning it as woke propaganda. here's a little snippet of it. watch. >> i'm a woman of color, i am a mom, i am a fifth gender

5:14 am
after 9/11, and our focus if you asked us if we were to star in a recruitment video, we would have talked about mission, about the country, right? what did we hear? i'm fifth gender millennial against the patriarch key. nothing in that two minute video was focused on the country. so -- [laughter] how did we get here this this is now endemic. we have had a media in this country and leadership at the department of defense, the cia, the fbi, nsa all bringing their lived experiences talking about this, their own political partisan agendas, and people start to take note of that. it is a horrific, expected outcome. steve: so just like so many industries we've been talking about whether it's the trucking industry or whether it's the restaurant industry, the cia is hiring. brian: you know the navy's got something very similar out there. i mean, i hate to say it, but they're going to have to --

the capitol and your response to that, simon & schuster, right across the street from us, they canceled your book. regnery picked it up. we think the book is going to be the even more of a success because folks who love you and support you are going to want to buy it and support you for supporting president trump. tell us more about your book. >> well, it's about the power that these big tech monopolies have in our society over our politics, over our government. it's an incredible, unprecedented amount of power, and we see what they want to do with it. big tech tried to suppress the stories about hunter biden and joe biden, we saw it in january when they kicked donald trump off of twitter and facebooking when they kicked numerous conservatives off those platforms, they try to suppress speech they don't like. these companies want to tell us what we can think, what we can say, and they ultimately want to run the country, and we can't let them. we've got to reclaim our democracy for the american
5:45 am
people, and the book is about how we can do that. brian: with your book, with the attention you've gotten, do you think with donald trump suspended from twitter and everything else, do you think facebook reinstates tomorrowsome. >> you know, i don't know what they're going to do. here's the curious thing to me, brian, free speech in america, think about this, free speech in america or now depends on the whims of a monopoly corporation. that's how much power these people are is. i mean, they're going to decide and, by the way, we have no idea how they make their decisions, facebook and their facebook court and all of this nonsense. this is ridiculous. we ought to be able to say what we want to say within the bounds of the law, of course, in this country, and the idea that these corporations would decide what we can say and can't say, who can speak and can't speak, it's crazy. steve: but as you know, they're private companies. they can do whatever they want. however, you know, joe biden's talking about bipartisan support, there seems to be bipartisan support in congress for getting rid of section 230 which gives these monopolistic
5:46 am
big tech companies all of the protections they've got. you know, a lot of people looking in se, you know, it's probably time to pull that back. >> yeah, i certainly think it is, and i'd go a step further. i think it's time to break them up. and i talk about this in the book as well. i think facebook, twitter, google, they're huge companies, they own not only so much of the internet, they now own the cloud. they're buying up other industries. there is no reason why these companies should be such monopolies and be able to control so much power, so much of our economy, so much of our lives. we need to break 'em up. that's the real solution here. we've done this before in mesh history -- american history. when the railroads tried to control our politics a century ago, we broke them up. republicans did that the, by the way. brian: right. and you're the leading voice when it comes to getting the social media companies under wraps, and your book lays the template on how to do it. senator, thanks so much for withing standing all the pressure, tension and stress and putting it out. >> thank you.
5:47 am
