3:02 am
and friends. ainsley: kilmeade show we should call fox and brian. steve: brian and friends. brian: i would think. "fox & friends" is the franchise seven days a week. good news is that we're back for another three hours and we have a lot to discuss today. this might be the show that weigh don't get everything in. >> bill hemmer is going to make sure we do because is he going to take over at 9:00. bribe, great to have you back from your vacation. how was your vacation. brian: good. ainsley: working double. doing the 7:00 p.m. brian: doing the 7:00 p.m. ainsley: i'm doing "the five" tonight dagen is not going to be here tonight. we will hang out in the building all day. brian: be in studio with "the five." steve: fantastic. pete hegseth is down live in tampa. >> good morning. steve: where turning point u.s.a. big student summit. you have been busy, mr. hegseth. pete: i hear they are renaming
3:03 am
it brian kilmeade prime time. brian: that's not happening. pete: down in florida student action summit for turning point. amazing energy. one of the cool things is talking to these young people. they feel like they are under assault on college campuses. they find solidarity. hear from speakers who motivate them and fox nation is showing it all. if you want to tornado watch code fas to get a free 30 days. if you see on bottom of your screen i'm hosting the all access live show with my good friend kayleigh mcenany here, too. you will hear from the speakers on the stage. we will be talking to them when they come off and others. and just a lot of energy. a lot of hope in the conservative cause. it's great to see young, motivated americans getting together and you can watch it all on fox nation. and, until then, i don't know that many people here will be watching "fox & friends" because i could barely sleep at 2:00 and 3:00 and 4:00 in the morning when groups of kids were coming home and i was about to go to work. steve: those darn kids.
3:04 am
quiet. ainsley: you will be speaking today. >> i will be speaking at 4:00. brian: mostly biographical? pete: exclusively biographical. i don't feel people sufficiently know my background or story i will be laying it out from my home address to where i currently live. steve: they were not expecting that. all right, pete, thank you very much. we will see you later. by the way, fox nation, if you don't know, is streaming all the speeches live from the turning point summit through tuesday. get a free month of fox nation with the code sas. ainsley: and a free subscription if you are military for year. steve: 6:04 on this monday. the white house is not backing down for blaming big tech for covid misinformation and killing people. ainsley: comes as the attorney general defending new mask rules. brian: here we go again. griff jenkins joins us live with the latest. hey, griff. >> brain, ainsley and steve, you are right. masks back on in l.a. county
3:05 am
indoors and until further notice. and it's where cases of that delta variant are speak spiking as well as masks back on in casinos in vegas for employees. and the watch is more areas kind teed follow as surgeon general vivek murthy defended. >> it's very reasonable for counties to take more mitigation measures like the mask rules that coming thought l.a. i anticipate that will happen in other parts of the country, too. griff: these mask mandates depart from current cdc guidelines that vaccinated people do not need to wear masks. jerome adams says he and dr. fauci were wrong against masks tweeting this: quote, i felt it was the best call at the time. but now regret it now is he calling on the cdc to reverse its course. meanwhile the administration is taking harder aim at facebook over covid misinformation.
3:06 am
murthy reiterating president biden's rhetoric that the tech giant is, quote: killing people. saying efforts to combat it have failed. >> i acknowledge that they are taking some steps and i appreciate that. but, i'm also very clearly saying it is not enough. it's hurting people and i think it's got to stop. griff: and then there is this: in mecklenburg county, north carolina, that's a area that knock at the door might come with a needle. officials there kicked off a doses to door administration program with health officials on stand by to administer shots to residents that have not been vaccinated. steve: griff, how would that work? knock on the door give you a shot? shouldn't they be checking in their medical history? somebody might forget? they might make a mistake. it doesn't seem very safe. griff: appears the local health officials and volunteers have decided to extend their canvas effort. they started they say back in may. this time they will have that health official standing by with
3:07 am
a shot in case you need to get it. ainsley: are they doctors or nurses? griff: describing the program as health officials. i assume that's a doctor or a nurse. although i would have to travel down there to find out. steve: have you ever done this before? griff, thank you very much. brian: all right. i think it's back to the future as now we are hearing in las vegas and los angeles counties time to wear a mask. jerome adams comes down wear a mask. we remember vividly saying masks don't work. then he told us the only reason he told us not to wear a mask because we didn't have enough. and dr. fauci said the same thing. the problem is that is it's inaccurate. not to the point. when you stop telling people the truth or acknowledging when you said things that were wrong, like dr. fauci always does, that's when people get distrustful. when people like mitt romney come out and say it's moronic to have any questions about the vaccine. people get a little ticked off when they're put down. and then when you don't bring up the fact that there can be after-effects of it and you hear especially with kids with swelling of the heart and we
3:08 am
have had people on here. that's not misinformation that i want facebook to i can that down. that actually happens sometimes. and when people don't acknowledge that in power, that makes the average american who cherishes freedom say i will make my own decision, thank you. steve: well, here's the thing. and one of the cdc officials said yesterday, lack, the pandemic right now is really just with people who have not been vaccinated. brian: thank you. steve: 99% of the people who died have not been vaccinated. what they are trying to do is make sure that all of the people who have not been vaccinated get vaccinated. unfortunately, and this is one of the reasons apparently that joe biden and the administration came out last week, the administration very frustrated. they have not been able to get facebook to get rid of some of the disinformation. the disinformation is online. the vaccine is killing lots and lots of people. or it changes your d.n.a. or their little microchips. none of that is true. ainsley: right.
3:09 am
so that's why you have in washington this continuous message, misinformation, misinformation. and the surgeon general, i didn't know this. he said that he lost 10 people in his family from covid-19 and he says facebook is not doing enough. but then when you ask facebook, they say we have followed all the 8 plans. all the 8 recommendations that they gave us. we have listened to them and we have done our jobs. 58% of the folks that are getting -- that are getting -- that have covid now, that are not vaccinated, 58% of them have the delta variant. that's the one that's so condition teenage just and spreading throughout the country. brian: not more dangerous. said if you had covid last year. not protected from this evidence year the flu changes? brian: who said that? steve: the cdc. brian: have not proven that the antibodies disappear when they get in t cells that people who have the natural immunity not even better protected than those with the vaccine. steve: still have the natural
3:10 am
immunity to the first covid. this is the fourth version. this is the delta version. that's the worry. all the people that have not gotten vaccinated and some people have a reason they can't get vaccinated. i have a friend who when gets the flu shot is paralyzed for a week or two. that kind of person does not get it people who are pregnant reluctant to get it before the baby comes. so there are people. but everybody else, if you have the chance, get the shot. brian: but if you don't. steve: save your life. brian: make your own decision, it's available to everyone. we are not doctors. you could say we got it i'm not going to go and there say i'm going to give other medical advice if you have flat feet wear arches might make more of a bounce in your step. but a couple of things. people are making their own decisions and stop with the mask mandates because we don't need a mask if we have been vaccinated unless you are not telling us the truth again. if you wonder why people are questioning what you are saying because you are doing double talk to people. ainsley: they asked some of our reporters, hillary vaughn was at
3:11 am
the turning point event. she was asking these students what do you think social media really determine your decisions. they said we like to read it all and do our own research. steve: look into it. ainsley: don't, what do they say you shouldn't intervene with my free speech. brian: here is byron donalds a rising star on the republican side. is he rip roaring upset as he spoke to hillary vaughn about what is going on with facebook. first, we hear they are in cahoots with the administration. then the administration calling out facebook for not doing enough. he wants to hear from them. listen. >> do you think that facebook should have to sit in front of congress and explain what role the federal government has had in their content moderation decision? >> absolutely. i'm actually going to call for it you can't put pressure on private companies to have them too your bidding for you. it's outrageous they need to come and answer the congress about this one. it's not the president's business who has been vaccinated and not vac sin nayed. not your job what you are supposed to do.
3:12 am
your job is president in chief. it's not joe biden. you are not my daddy. i have got one. leave people alone. there is going to be a pushback simply because people don't want to be told what to do. provide the information and let them consult for the people they want to consult with. everything will work out the way it's supposed. to say. steve: all this started on thursday when jen psaki said the administration was flagging problematic posts that spreads disinformation to facebook and then saying hey, these people are a problem, get rid of them. that's how we wound up where we are. brian: the dad of a 17-year-old who said. ainsley: soccer player? brian: soccer player three weeks ago if that post is up, will it be taken down because he had a negative reaction to the virus. not the virus, excuse me, to the vaccine. about that work against somebody getting the vaccine? perhaps. but is that going to be taken down because they don't like that message? that's gray area which makes me think back off. let us make our open decisions. a lot of things about certainty
3:13 am
of aliens living amongst us. i want to believe that doesn't mean i believe that. ainsley: some conspiracy theories online. byron donalds the man you just heard from there is his picture. republican in florida, is coming up at 8:00. steve: excellence. ainsley: coming up. senseless violence unfolds around our nation's capitol. newest victim 6-year-old little girl. the biggest call to curb crime next. steve: more of those democrats from texas sidelined covid-19 after jetting out of their state. texas republican candidate alan west is going to join us to react. you can't make it up, folks. ♪ i want to put on my boogie boogie shots. at's on the horizo? the answers lie beyond the roads we know. we recognize that energy demand is growing, and the world needs lower carbon solutions to keep up. at chevron, we're working to find new ways forward, like through our venture capital group.

3:20 am
steve: so it's going to be later today. you will see it right here on fox. ainsley: meanwhile the protests are continuing down in florida. standing in solidarity for the folks on the island of cuba. you have protests now or do we call these protests peaceful just in solidarity. we have them in miami and orlando and jacksonville and tampa. waving cuban flags and american flags. just letting them know we support you. steve: well, see, that's a protest rally here in the united states yesterday in havana, actually, they had tens of thousands of people big rally on sunday in havana. those were people supporting communism. and, of course, we heard from the president of cuba. he blamed the united states for the uprising last week where we saw about 5,000 people in the streets of havana blame the united states for the embargo and said all the information spread by darn social media. two stories in a row, facebook,
3:21 am
facebook, facebook. brian: used to be easy communism bad, democracy good now in a sense where democracy and capitalism is being taken to task around this country. and communism, i guess is kind of good if you are nicole hanna jones. she went out of her way, even though she said in the past that she is not international relations expert in 2019, remember, the author of the 161 project which is part of the curriculum in so many schools across the country, sadly, said this the most equal multiracial country in our hemisphere would be cuba. cuba last the least inequality between black and white people any place in the hemisphere. most of the caribbean hard to count. the white population loot of countries run by black folks. in places that are truly at least biracial countries cuba has the least inequality largely due to socialism which i'm sure no one wants to hear. true. we would like to hear from you because we would love to know exactly what you are about.
3:22 am
exactly what about is black lives matter based on, that is marxism. which i think should be an easy decision tore the average americans to decide what you are going to be in on marxism usually something you hear about but don't subscribe. to say in america we are giving it a second look which is scary. ainsley: down in jacksonville a reporter interviewed some of them and one said he was arrested 9 times by the age of 15 just for looking suspicious. saw. his relatives being taken and imprisoned. another person says there has been a 62-year regime. we need freedom. another lady what my country needed is the same thing i came looking for, freedom. one more, my grandson was taken by the cuban police on saturday. he was beat on the streets and hit with rocks. steve: you know. brian: sounds great, doesn't it? steve: no kidding. which flies in the face of what the leader of the 1619 project said. joe biden has got a problem. because, you know, he -- for the longest time, he did not come
3:23 am
out and say communism is a terrible thing. but, eventually he said we stand with the people. brian: he had to read it did you notice it? he had to read the comments about condemning communism. steve: that's joe biden. that's the way he wants to make sure he gets everything exactly right. he has a progressive super left wing that actually likes a lot of what cuba does. you know, aoc, in particular, got called out yesterday by a congresswoman from new york, nicole malliotakis and referred to the congresswoman from new york as a communist sympathizer. listen to this. >> what's cruel is the way that the communist regime treats its people. there are two classes in cuba. one is the ruling class run by the communist. and then there is everyone else who live in squaller. they tonight have access to food. they don't have access to medicine. they don't have access to the basic necessities and it's certainly not because of the
3:24 am
embargo. cuba does business with nearly every country in the world. for six decades they remained a communist regime. alexandria ocasio-cortez is nothing more than a communist sympathizer who wants to bring socialism to the united states of america and i'm sure she sympathizes with the regime in cuba. but the relates is that they use everything that they get when they do business with other countries for the regime. they use it to reward the people in the ruling class. it never gets to the people. brian: it's basically assumed their secret police is more lethal and pervasive in cuba than even the soviet union hay day when pressure november was in power. that's what's hang. i know we are in a tough position. what do you do? keep in mind, china, venezuela and russia are not going to sit back. they will make sure that cuba stays communists. we can sit on the slindz and say let cuba live by it own devices they are not because we are not. we watched in venezuela. we let the cubans, iranians and
3:25 am
the chinese and the russians prop that up horrible bus driver maduro, repressing his people and destroy that nation. are we going to do the same thing again? rare window of opportunity. it seems like joe biden it is going to read its notes and not do a thing. meanwhile d.c. police offering a $10,000 reward in the manhunt for suspect since saturday's shooting outside of nationals came. steve: the terrifying incident happened one day after 6-year-old my a courtney was fatally shot in washington, d.c. her mother still hospitalized as $60,000 reward has been offered in that case as well. ainsley: how beautiful she is. naya's grieving grandmother her name is andrea courtney. and she lived with the family. she joins us now. good morning to you, andrea. >> good morning. ainsley: we're so sorry for your loss. i have a child about the same age. i look at her picture and she is such beautiful child. about to go first grade. tell us what happened on friday. it was friday night, right? >> yes. >> ainsley: could you tell us what
3:26 am
happened, please? >> i can't exactly say because i wasn't there. i got a phone call from my daughter telling me that she had been shot. her and her daughter. i asked her was-at this -- tell me okay. i made a phone call to a family member to take me there to her. when i got there, she was gone. they both were gone already. ainsley: how is your daughter doing now? she is in the icu. >> she is [inaudible] steve yeah. so your daughter is still in the hospital. four others in addition to naya
3:27 am
were hit. courtney, what is going on in washington, d.c.? you would think that our nation's capital would be a safer place than it has become. >> i'm afraid to be out now. because they have no regard for anyone i don't feel safe for me or my family 'she didn't deserve this she did nothing to anyone. steve: courtney, do you feel as if the police or, andrea, do you feel that the police can do a good job keeping this town safe?
3:28 am
>> from what i was told, the police was there and they did not do anything at the moment i feel like they didn't have any resolve or they they didn't care that the police was present. that he they -- i know they seen them and any still didn't care they were there. they were bold enough to do it while the police was present and i feel like it do that. why not get out of the vehicle and walk up on the person that you are trying to hit up stead of shooting through a crowd with children in it.
3:29 am
they could have done that and you should have been there. brian: are you says that the police shot into a crowd with children in it. >> no. what i'm saying is the suspect the suspect or suspects, whoever did the shooting, they were bold enough to shoot while the police was present, i should have gotten out of the car, walk on your target and shoot the person that you were trying to get instead of shooting at innocent people. if you were that bold. ainsley: andrea, final question, tell us about your granddaughter. what was she like? i read that she got her hair braided last week because she wanted to be your twin. >> she was amazing. she was beautiful she was
3:30 am
loving. she touched so many people. she brightened up the room. she wasn't shy at all. she loved to sing, she loved to dance. she loved to do tiktok. she loved playing with her sister and cousins. she loved her family, her friends. she was looking forward to going to first grade. she called me mamma i'm going to the big school now i say yeah, because you are a big girl. steve: andrea, we know this has been a very tough story for you to tell. we thank you very much for
3:31 am
joining us today to tell us what did happen. just know there are people all across the country who you have never met and will have never met are praying for your family. ainsley: that's right. hopefully we will catch these men who took all of that away from you or these women, whoever they're. there is a 6 o. $0,000 reward. god bless you. steve: that's right. >> thank you guys. i want to say i hope and pray that they turn themselves. in that they find it in their heart to do so. knowing what they did. i pray that when they close their eyes at night, they see her face when they wake up, they see her face. and find it in their heart to turn themselves in. i'm praying for that i'm praying for justice for my granddaughter. steve: justice. it's all about justice. all right. andrea, thank you very much.

pack provided. then you see in other pictures, cases of miller lite. do they look like they are suffering? >> well, of course not. they are not suffering. it's good to be with you brian down here in kerrville, texas. the thing i flernd military service if you did in the report for duty you were put down it w. awol. charged with dereliction of duty and combat when you abandon your post you were treated high treason and of course also called a deserter. the thing that is so incredible about this here are individuals that maybe they would not have this issue with covid if they
3:37 am
were here doing their job but they are being hailed as heroes but, yet, they are undermining our representative democracy here in texas. may own state texas state representative was on one of those three private jets that landed up there when you think about the fact that they are in d.c. asking for the filibuster to be removed yet they are obstructing our legislative process here in texas and furthermore state representatives going and asking for the federal government to usurp and overtake and take away the state's ability and power by the constitution to conduct elections? this is absolutely abhorrent. brian: what is governor act to do? i know you are running against him for the republican nomination. what could he do that he is not he seems at this point hopeless. >> i would never say i'm run aing against governor abbott. i'm running for the great state of texas. and if i were governor and this antic that is very petulant ache was taken. as soon as those mans had landed in washington, d.c. i would have declared those
3:38 am
seats vacant and call for special elections. and if they want to stay in washington, d.c. and be part of the sanctuary of stupidity up there, they can stay there first and foremost, we would make sure that the $221 per diem that they get from the texas taxpayers that will be stopped. that will be cut off. brian: what do you think about senator graham who came out and said i think before we sign off on the 3.5 trillion on simply party line vote, i'm going to leave just like texas is. the democrats in texas left. maybe i will be hailed as a his or her like they're. what do you think of the republicans left? >> if the republicans left this could be front page on every single mainstream news outlet and newspaper. they would be den graded. that's part of the hypocrisy. when you abandon your duty and part of the representative of the people and walk away from your job. you are not a hero. you are a coward. brian: got it law tenant colonel allen west. head of the g.o.p. in texas and

now wants to be the next governor of texas. thanks so much, colonel. >> my pleasure, take care, brian. brian: you got it coming up straight ahead, democrat could be looking to seize on the latest rise in covid-19 cases and exten unemployment benefits? are you kidding? are they treating the pandemic like the 2k3weu69 that keeps on giving? host of making money on fox business, charles payne will join us live to examine ♪ money, money, money ♪ michael cohen ♪ money ♪

steve: those in yellow on your map right there. have moved to stop extended unemployment benefits to get people back to work. but, now, as the delta variant spreads, some economists say the incentives may need to continue. one arguing, quote: it's certainly possible we could have another round ever economic contraction in certain areas if there is an outbreak. and the unemployment system will
3:44 am
be there for people the way it's been over the past year. host of making money on fox business charles payne. good morning to you. >> good morning. steve: we have been hearing how there is a gigantic number of jobs unfilled right now some people are sitting on their couch, waiting for the unemployment to run out. the so-called plus up. the federal supplement of 300 bucks per week. it's supposed to run out next month some time. now they are talking about extending it maybe permanently? >> they have been talking about this since we implemented it last year. there have been certain forces in washington, d.c. that wanted to get this done, steve. you know, of the idea that the delta variant is starting to, you know, grow and obviously highly transmissible. this is latest excuse for doing it you know powerful forces elected officials in our congress and our senate who believe we should have a system of free money that we should
3:45 am
have universal basic income. that we should provide these kind of things that the government can print unlimited amounts of money and take care of the needs of people and so, you know, whenever something like this flairs up is their chance to get from and say hey, let's do it again. what are we dealing with right now in the number one issue in this country right now, 87% of americans are afraid of inflation. part of this inflation story is the trillions of dollars that have been pumped into society. imagine this, if you are working because, and, you know, you had a buddy, let's say you had a leash leisure job. want to keep working. they go out and spend this money they get from the government. essentially from taxpayers, you know, there is a lot of people on pressure not to work that's your conundrum. we have the greatest job market in the history of america, yet, we have the most people quitting in the history of america. we have got the greatest work opportunity being met workers struck and defactor workers
3:46 am

3:55 am
do you think the regime will be overturned? >> i believe, you know, we have never anything like this before. my parents were still in cuba and that's was what they said. something similar to what's going on now to where people stood up to the regime. but i think that if we keep the momentum going, if they know they have support here in the united states. our student community not here in tampa miami-dade and florida as a whole. that's something that wine expire them to keep going. and, again, the biggest thing is we don't need food or water. they need support. they need to know that we're backing them over here and that we want a free cuba. ainsley: do they know that? are they getting the word in cuba that so many are supporting them? >> >> for the most part, yes. until they cut the internet. that's something that the castro regime is do well is cut information from the people of cuba so they don't know what's going on here. i think it's amazing despite being kept in the dark they're still throughout fighting. after covid, the reason all of that is going on not because of

covid and the lack of displays. it's because they are tired of the communist dictatorship that has taken away economic opportunities for them that has, you know, they freedom of speech under how many rights. and they are fired of it they are not fearful of the government anymore. and they are sticking up for themselves. ainsley: i'm glad your parents made it over safely. you have our support. thanks, barbara. >> thank you. ainsley: a pta leader in virginia is voted from the group parents opposed to critical race theory. >> let them die.

walter reed for a routine doctor's visit. ainsley: on a sunday. steve: what doctor's visit is routine on sunday. i talked to one of my doctor's probably just went for a routine regeneron infusion, he joked. but, nonetheless, take if they were republican? ainsley: the media is not covering this story. the "new york post" there is an op-ed the headline says covid hypocrisy. media silent from kamala harris' meeting with infected texas democrat. goes on to say imagine if three republican lawmakers. steve: now five. ainsley: flying maskless on a private jet rather than voting on a bill they didn't like caught covid and met with republican vice president who refused to be tested for the virus. the media would lose their mind. reckless lawmakers subverting democracy, spreading the delta variant and an administration trying to hide the truth. of course, you don't need to imagine the scenario.

in my toolbox to prevent rampant inflation. a $3.5 trillion infrastructure package. steve: well, he said that before it was revealed that she went -- after she met with the fox news channellive lawmakers she went to walter reed for the routine sunday afternoon doctor visit. by the way, all those lawmakers in d.c. who are going to do a five day conference now on voting rights and things like that. they are going to all appear virtually from their hotel because, as we have now discovered, perhaps that jetting from austin to our nation's capitol was a super spreader event. brian: how could they hailed as heros if you are not going to a wedding or friend's wedding because this you didn't like your friend and didn't want to get married. you don't leave town and miss these crucial events in your life in order to run away from routine election rules that were there prior to the pandemic. and, number two, is when you are running from doing something

4:12 am
the list. they thought it was going to be about 100 names. 41 candidates made the cut to run for governor. 21 are republicans. there is one radio talk show host that is missing. ainsley: larry elder his name on the list. the list submitted by the secretary of state. and he said, this spokesperson said we filled out all of the documents correctly. we don't understand why our name. steve: wes up with that. >> why my name is not on the list. listen to this. >> this arrogant, incompetent, elitist man has got to go. crossed every i. dotted every t. signed every piece of paper turned it in on time. i intend to be in this election i will be on the certified ballot. brian: he would be a strong candidate. talked about his background. meager beginnings, dad worked his way up and becomes dominant radio personality. it's a shame. i wonder what's going to happen.

4:14 am
they do expect him to be on the finalist that is going to be issued next week. because they did everything by the book. ainsley: on the ballot it will say should gavin newsom be recommend. if everyone votes no. he stays governor. if it's yes the person with the most votes you could get 25% will be the new governor of california. steve: stay tuned for that meanwhile, moving on. 7:4 here in the east. we showed you last week the extraordinary video of a board member for the naacp, also a top executive with the pta and federal employee a woman by the name of michelle leith standing outside of a school board heating in fairfax county. some people are incensed about the teaching of critical race theory. well, there she is right there in the center. and let to what she -- it appears she is talking about the parents who are concerned with what their students are being
4:15 am
taught. listen: [cheers and applause] ainsley: she says the comments were not aimed at them. she didn't want people. steve: didn't want people to die. she he wanted the ideals to die. she was asked to resign. this is the statement she said. she said it had nothing to do with crt. to my knowledge cr. >> it is not being taught in the public schools there or any other public school in the country. i will certainly admit it was ineloquently stated and with a
4:16 am
pause for applause. the timing was off but let them die was referring to the ideals that show a disregard and lack of support for our teachers who have -- who have a truly difficult job to do even without the pandemic. steve: that's right. so she was asked to resign from the pta. she has resigned. however, the naacp where she is also a board member said they stand with her the video was taken by azra who has a child who graduated. she had this observation about the let them die comment. >> i'm very troubled by these comments by virginia pta official, it the corruption that the virginia pta runs wide and deep and they have put a target on any parent whose opinion defers from their. >> it was disturbing. i stood behind her as she said
4:17 am
those words. i was shocked and what was even more disturbing was the applause that came afterwards. something that we have to stop and that's what we are trying to do as parents. we have millions across the country as you know going to school boards because that's what we have to do to stand up against this kind of divisive rhetoric. brian: wonder what this has to do with the governor's race. a lot of republicans are optimistic they can win that governor's race. and with stuff like this. with an issue as hot as this, it could resonate with a lot of suburban moms and dads. >> those two ladies on "fox & friends first" early yermt both of indian dissent. women of color they said. they are teaching their kids about their cultures and their background but she said we are against critical race theory. steve: all right. keeping you up to date. meanwhile, 7:17 here in the east. and ashley astronomer is joining us. this first story is the most troubling story i have heard in a week. >> it really is and i was going to say almost the same thing,

♪ brian: try to follow this the war of words between the white house and facebook continues as the biden administration doubles down on criticism suddenly of the big tech giant. >> covid misinformation. what's your mess stooge platforms like facebook. >> they are killing people. >> information is hurting people's health. costing people's lives. taken positive steps i have acknowledged that what i have already said very clearly to them privately and very publicly is that it's not enough. brian: here to react is biotech entrepreneur and author of the upcoming book woke inc. vivek ramaswamy. thank you for joining us. one or two days to that statement they are killing people. they admit they are coordinating with facebook on a messaging campaign. what are we to believe. >> look, they are using different tools to get private companies to do what the government wants them to do. like i said before, brian,
4:34 am
private companies are free to do whatever they want. not free to do what they want when they are doing the bidding of big government. what government is doing right now juicing a combination of threats against these companies. that is effectively what you heard from president biden. they are the regulator of these companies so those threats mean something. also those companies are now willfully coordinating with the government to do the same thing. under the supreme court standard if a private company is either willfully coordinating with the government or the government is threatening those companies to do the same thing. or if the government provides immunity like section 230 to prevent private companies from being sued for doing what the government wants them to do. that means it's just state action in disguise. here you have all three elements and if it is state action in disguise, the constitution still applies. the first amendment, therefore, applies to these companies. brian: vivek, here's the problem. what is the truth? is it masks? good or bad? it changed? where is the origin of the virus in the wuhan lab? conventional wisdom according to the biden administration you vilified if you are brought that up a year ago. what is the truth when it comes to services?
4:35 am
i mean, hasn't the biden administration learned anything that they don't know everything about this? >> you hit the nail on the head. the right answer is hue middle not only acknowledging what we know but what we don't know. the right answer to misinformation, brian, it's not less speech, it is more speech. every dictator through human history has had his or her execute for why it is that they need to censor speech. the road only ends in the same place. the right answer is actually free debate. open debate in the marketplace of ideas. where the best ideas can win. that's a lesson we have learned time and again. now, president biden today, the mantra is that social media is different. well, guess what? this time has always been different. people said the same thing with the telephone. people said the same thing with radio. people said the same thing with the guteenberg printing press. it's not that different and precisely what president biden said is different, we need to remember our first principles of free speech. one of the principles that define our country.

brian: ' order vaccinated against covid-19. president biden's goal 70% july 4th vivek, all you do is tell people when you read things online find out the source of where they are coming from. so we do this every single day to do our jobs. do the same thing. is it fox news? is it another network? where did they find it? who is quoted in it and then you make your decision. that's called the way most americans live their lives. they think we're all morons. >> absolutely. and actually, the irony, brian, they are actually undermining public trust in science by trying to engineer the conversation. that's why people don't believe what they hear anymore because they know it's already been engineered free-thinking people are actually able to make their own judgment in the free marketplace of ideas. that's what we have lost.

4:54 am
but clearly, statistically there were people at mount rushmore who weren't vaccinated that, obviously, were ignoring this rule. so the problem, i think, is going to be public response. i think people are over it, ainsley. and is we talked even a year ago that we were concerned it would take a long time for demand to come back. well, las vegas is packed. there's a huge pent-up demand. we're seeing it across restaurants across the nation. we're busy from a revenue standpoint. i'm not sure the public is going to buy into it this time. ainsley, if i canned add one more -- can add one more point. back before the election when this was the, quote, trump vaccine, kamala harris and a bunch of democrats played a very active role in discrediting it. now that it's the biden vaccine, they're weighing and they're absorbing the results of what they did when they discredited it early on. my point is this: if we didn't discredit this process from the
4:55 am
beginning, the public would probably be far more accepting about it. we've got a problem. america's not ready to get vaccinated, and it should, and americans aren't ready to mask up again, so i'm not quite sure where this lands, ainsley. ainsley: you're absolutely right. we feel like we have freedom again, we can actually see people's mouths when they move and they talk, so do you think these workers -- a lot of these workers might have had covid, and they might have been vaccinated. do you think they're going to go along with this, and will it hurt the bottom line? are some people going to say is, look, i'm not going to go to the casinos if they're going to make me wear a mask? i'm just not going to spend my money in these restaurants. >> i think that's a real reality. we look at gaming, for example, which drives las vegas, the longer you sit, the more you play, the more money we make. you're not going to sit as long when you're uncomfortable wearing a mask. so it has a profound impact on gaming, it has a profound impact

5:10 am
like every poll that is taken about joe biden and how he's handling everything, he always finishes first with how he's handle the pandemic. but when you look at how badly they missed the administration target of trying to get 70% of the country with at least one jab by the fourth of july, they missed that. and so now, you know, the administration is blaming republicans, they're blaming trump, they're blaming facebook. facebook was not going to stand for it. they said, look, just because joe biden missed his 70% target, don't blame us. 85% of the people on facebook actually have gotten the jab or are going to get the jab. >> that's exactly right. listen, here's the problem. leftists always -- doesn't mean it's everybody else's fault. stop pressuring everybody. stop throwing it in people's faces. people typically have a revolt when somebody tells them what to do. just provide the information,

5:12 am
people to understand, this is actually the road to serfdom. when you allow a government entity to begin to take on more and more power and step outside of what they are authorized to do, then they have these bright ideas that they're the ones that get to shape reality for everybody else. this is a real problem for them because they could have just stopped and say we recommend people to get vaccinated, please look into the vaccine. there are plenty, they're available. but they've gone way past that. they're now putting pressure on social media companies to censor speech in our country. that is not the job of the president of the united states -- brian: and here comes the oppression again. here comes the mask mandate in las vegas and los angeles, and you just watch these other democratic states. we have a lot more to discuss. ainsley: yeah, congressman, let's talk about cuba because you live down in florida, and you've probably seen a lot of these rallies and people standing, demonstrations standing in solidarity with family members or folks down in cuba. recent talk, a podcast that was
5:13 am
recorded back in 2019 was recently released, and this is nicole hannah jones, the writer of the 1619 project. she's also a professor at howard university, and she says the most equal, multiracial country in our hemisphere, it would be cuba. it has the least inequality between black and white people anywhere in the hemisphere. i mean, the caribbean is hard to count because the white population in a lot of those countries is very, very small. a lot of those countries are run by black folks, but in race plas that are truly at least biracial countries, cuba has the least inequality, and that's largely due to socialism which i'm sure no one wants to hear. what's your reaction? >> first of all, outrage but not surprised. this is the problem with the left. marching if relate thatcher -- marching represent thatcher, god rest her soul, said it best,
5:14 am
they'd rather the poor be poorer. the reason why there's so much equality in cuba is because nobody has anything. that's not a society i want. that's not a society anybody wants. brian: by the way, congratulations on her showing her true colors. she's a socialist who sees a lot of merit in communism. thanks. >> absolutely right. it's ridiculous. this is the rationale, the ideology of the left. when you do that, folks, nobody has anything. except for the government, of course. nobody else has anything. we're all equal then. great, that sounds awesome. [laughter] steve: yeah. of course there have been rallies in support of the cuen ban people -- cuban people. you know, they want to be free. they hate communism. they would love the kind of freedom we have. in fact, you spoke at turning point in tampa over the weekend as did governor desantis, and we have a little clip where he welcomed folks to a particular
5:15 am
place that you won't find anywhere else. listen to this. >> let me just give you a personal welcome to the free state of florida. [cheers and applause] we believe in lifting people up, not locking people down.

5:25 am
story on crime stories, and she joins us now. good morning, nancy. >> good morning. thank you for inviting me. a lot of people are making much ado about a very recent post britney spears made of her dancing to a billie eilish song called "bad man." yes, she may be sending a message, but it's very much like reading the tea leaves. i don't know what that message is, but i can tell you this, we'll find out in september when they all go back to court. there's a lot of competing interests that are going down in that courtroom. it will be a major legal battle. ainsley: what will happen in that courtroom? she has this new attorney, and i know that he wants the dad out. if. >> yeah. now, here's the catch, do they just want the father, jamie spears, out or do they want to end the conservatorship totally? now, she got a really good and aggressive lawyer, mat
5:26 am
rossengart. he's going to go to war. two choices. the father -- jamie spears -- can do it the easy way. the two of them can get together and negotiate his exit plan, or he could do it the hard way where this lawyer goes to war. the loser will be the father. but, again, do they want to owned the conserve or to haveship or just remove the father, because let me tell you something, to remove a conservatorship, very hard to do and very rare because normally the people under conservatorship can't speak for themselves unlike britney. and listen to what she said to the court. highly, highly probative. her ability to explain what she wants, she's very articulate. she does not need to be in a conservatorship. but to get out of it, she's going to have to submit to a evaluation, a mental evaluation.
5:27 am
this judge isn't going to just let go of the reins without being sure she can take care of herself. britney spears does not want that evaluation. ainsley: what's the future for her? she's talked about maybe wanting to have another baby and get married. do you think she'll go on the road again and tour? >> now wait a minute, wait a minute. i'm a lawyer not a planned participant if hood -- [laughter] if i were going to read the tea leave, i would say she is going to try to have another baby. she's still got time with this new boyfriend. i think once her dad is removed, and he will be removed -- mark my words on it, ainsley -- she will take to the stage again. it's like a bird's got to fly and a fish has got to swim, this girl's got to perform. she will take the stage and the dad is going to be out, but i predict there will still be a conservatorship in place. ainsley: she'll have sold out shows. >> you know it. ainsley: catch nancy's crime stories on fox nation. check it out.

5:34 am
problematic. they say she won't be tested or quarantined, but yesterday out of nowhere kamala harris, on a sunday,went to walter reed medical center for a routine doctor visit. there are no routine doctor visits on sunday. >> yeah. you know, this is really interesting that if this was a republican, like, if this entire thing was flipped around, we would hear nothing more than about this from the mainstream media. they would ask kamala harris about her covid status, they would say what are you doing, all of this other stuff. but because it's kamala harris, they will let this pass i by. it's actually crazy, and you're breaking a little news to me because i did not know that she visited walter reed yesterday. i did know that shed had exposure to these democrats, but i did not know that she visited walter reed. so there is a story here. unfortunately, we have a mainstream media that is not curious enough to ask any
5:35 am
questions of democrats, because these are the people that they want to support, you know? steve: and speaking of coverage on the network sunday morning shows, not one of them, not abc, cbs or nbc talked about it for one second. i think we've got a graphic of that. nonetheless, the other thing, rob -- there it is right there. so she apparently had her routine doctor vicinity, a doctor friend of mine said she probably just got a routine regeneron infusion, he joked. but, of course, nobody knows what happened. so that means, essentially, the image of those texas lawmakers who were on the lam flying to d.c. in that private jet with no masks on -- which flies in the face of the cdc guidelines -- that essentially could be a super-spreader event right there. why isn't anybody talking about that in the mainstream media? >> because they're democrats, okay? like i said, the main stream media, their function right now is to protect democrats, is to
5:36 am
protect the left. they're treating these types of democrats that basically pulled this publicity stunt, that acted like spoiled children and ran away from work and are trying to act like they're some sort of civil rights freedom fighters, so they're treating these folks as if they're heroes, and they're not. they're spoiled, petulant children, but the mainstream media does not want to ask these questions because if you do, you get answers that the american public deserves to know. those answers may just hurt democrats. the mainstream media doesn't want to do that. steve: let's see if kamala harris appears in public around other people or maybe she's just on office duty. listen, 11:40 this morning there in tampa you've got a big speech before the kids at the turning point, don't you in. >> yeah, i do. so i'm here in the beautiful state of florida, gotta love tampa. you know, i moved to the area about 15 months ago. i'm going to be taking the main stage at about 11:40 this

5:44 am
before. let's get weak on crime, let's let criminals out, let's attack the police and not empower them to do their jobs. guys, we tried that. we tried it. there was a massive crime wave throughout the country in the '80s. you had the crack wars in the '90s. i was there. i saw it. no one's going to lecture me on what happened with police departments, i was there. i also saw the renaissance in policing when rudy giuliani got into office and implemented different policies and said we're going to start now enforcing the law. today's the day, no more, not today, not tomorrow. we're going to clean this city up, and look what happened. so you have to ask yourself a common sense question. if they knew the results would be body bags in their streets, what does that say about the people in charge of liberal cities? i mean, that's a serious question. they knew this would happen and they did it anyway.

5:53 am
[cheers and applause]steve: yeah. so very clearly she says let them die -- ainsley: and then the crowd cheers. steve: they did. and now she's put out a statement where she said, hey, i don't know what everybody's talking about, i wasn't talking about crt. she said it had nothing at all to do with crt. to my knowledge, crt is not being taught in fairfax county schools. i will certainly admit it was ineloquently stated and the
5:54 am
timing was off. the let them die was referring to the ideals that show a disregard and lack of support for our teachers who have a truly difficult job to do even without a pandemic. to so many people who heard her though, you know, she's in the pta, and she's talking about let them die, it sounded like the parents. at the parent teacher association, that's bad for business and that's ooh why the pta said you've got to resign, and he did. ainsley: well, there were two ladies on "fox & friends" first, the second one you're going to hear from, she shot that video and it just went viral because people were so upset with what this lady was saying. these two women are against critical race theory being taught in their kids' schools. listen the these parents. >> i'm very troubled by these comments by a virginia pta official expect corruption that the pta, virginia pta runs wide and deep. they have put a target on any parent whose opinion differs
5:55 am
from theirs. >> oh, it's absolutely disturbing. i stood behind michelle as she said those words, and i was just shocked. and what was even more disturbing was the applause that came afterwards. something that we have to stop. that's what we're trying to do as parents. we have marching millions across the country, as you know, going to school boards because that's what we have to do to stand up against this kind of divisive rhetoric. brian: yeah, that's more that we'll continue to follow. meanwhile, struggling small businesses have found a helping hand to recover from the impact of pandemic from the bar stool fund. >> i'll be able to keep my doors open the next couple of months with my of staffers who have been there for many, many years. >> i was really thinking about foreclosure and what life would kind of look like.

5:57 am
before. you get the money and hand it to other people that need the money, and your credibility made this happen. that's got to be, that's got to be a great feeling. >> yeah. i mean, the beauty of this program was we got the money, we got it out the door quickly. there are a lot of people on our end from donations, myself if, the whole company with barstool, we're there every month so it wasn't just a one-time payment. we poke the these people every month, checked in with them. and the best part is getting the e-mails and letters from the businesses who say, hey, we don't need the money anymore. we made it through the worst part, and we want it to go to other people. actually, we've gotten a ton of those letters, and that's by far the most rewarding part. brian: absolutely. do you still look for donation status to sustain some of these businesses? >> no, we've slowed down with the donations. obviously, we'll see what happens, but this is really to get through the darkest time. summer, obviously, is good.
5:58 am
a lot of places can get going and reopen. we're not looking for more donations right now. brian: dave, i'm sure i you've seen the news, los angeles, las vegas, mask up. how soon til other cities are going to do the same thing? is this going to be déjà vu? >> learn, if you told me the first thing -- listen, if you told me the first thing was going to happen, i would have said no chance. i don't think the american people accept it, but what do i know. i really can't believe -- i mean, these businesses that we helped in the country, they're not going to -- they're still struggling. they're just in a better spot than they were. but another shutdown, masks -- what do i know? i really hope so not, but i can't believe, i won't let myself believe that's going on to be the case. brian: i hope not. they see the damage that's been done. it's unbelievable. dave, the other thing, i saw last night you were shut down
5:59 am
off twitter. what happened? >> you mean a couple weeks ago? brian: was it a couple weeks a ago you were shut down? >> yeah, yeah, no, that was a while ago. that was quick. i got back pretty quick. brian: all right. real quick then, something changed about college sports, barstool a part of it. if you want to, if you're a college student, now you can get marketing deals. what is barstool doing for these athletes? >> we're signing up a ton of d1 athletes and trying to get strength in numbers and really help them improve their social influence and how many followers you have on social media. that's currency in today's age. so we're trying to help grow the brand and help them figure out ways to get money for themselves. brian: exciting time. barstool in front of it, doing the marketing. dave portnoy, thank you so much. the
