2:02 am
>> the hearing was about vaccinations, over covid origins. they trade accusations about lying. >> this paper you are referring to was judged to buy qualified staff up and down the chain. you don't know what you are talking about. >> abuse skating the truth, if any of you are lying, it is you. >> paul on the fauci critic maintaining a paper about bad coronavirus is written by doctor xi lee, known as bat woman is proof that the nih financed gain of function research that increase transmissibility of viruses. >> we quoted a scientist from
2:03 am
rutgers university with a 30 year history in the cellular biology this is it is the epitome of gain of function research and all doctor fauci could do was sputter, call me a liar. >> paul is asking for a doj criminal referral on fauci citing the paper fauci wrote for the american society of microbiology, and fauci wrote it is more likely a pandemic would occur in nature and the need to stay ahead of the threat is a primary reason for performing an experiment that might appear to be risky. for contests, and animals to humans has gained a lot of traction in recent months with a deep dive into it.
2:04 am
>> griff jenkins kicking off the 5 am hour. the focus in dc on covid not just on that hearing but texas democrats who fled the state of texas to be courageous and powerful and talk about voting rights but created a super spreader event following that 6 of them out of 55 got covid and the pelosi staffer, biden staffer getting covid as well. at the end of the day if this were republicans this would be the number one story that you heard everywhere on every single channel but it is not. jillian: even if it were republicans, if that picture surfaced of them on a packed play not wearing masks people would still have an issue. todd: we are many days into this so far, democrats who fled texas are doubling down on the courageous this of their trip.
2:05 am
>> a couple people, one person from the speaker's office helping us last week when we were on capitol hill. we don't regret coming into dc, important to protect the freedom to vote, we leave texas in order to prevent republicans from passing their anti-voter legislation. jillian: there were numerous events that i can think of countless trump rallies where mainstream media was scolding people for being in crowds, not taking things seriously. i believe all those who contracted covid on that flight were vaccinated. we are seeing breakthrough cases but the hypocrisy you are seeing is just so unnerving and disappointing and frustrating for so many people because at the end of the day what matters to americans if you talk to every day people they want to know how this happened, did it come from the lab, did it come
2:06 am
from a bat, where did this originate from? how are we going to stop is happening again? are we facing more lockdowns in the future? there are a lot of questions people need and deserve answers to. here's what jen psaki has to say. >> is there any concern this trip that was intended to advocate for voting rights is a super spreader event in washington? >> i would say the characterization we are making from here, we understand there will be breakthrough cases. even vaccines that are incredibly effective are not foolproof. todd: yesterday i went on a tirade about messaging from the white house on the virus on the whole and this comment doesn't help acknowledge that it was a bad thing to do, acknowledge that it was a super spreader event. walk your self back from we love what they are doing with regard to voting, you keep beating that point home but people need consistency on the messaging when it comes to this virus in
2:07 am
this white house is not delivering it and this is the latest example. first it was masks, then vaccines, we need answers. jillian: people have enough. a lot of america not speaking, a lot of people had enough of the back-and-forth, we want to know the answers, we want to know the truth and how to move on without having to experience this again. todd: speaking of moving on. jillian: senate democrats with a vote on the bipartisan infrastructure bill despite not having enough support. todd: republicans hold their ground against biden's spending spree. >> reporter: full speed ahead for senate democrats even though they haven't finished writing the bill and republicans are threatening of the luster. many dems say negotiations of gone on long enough and it is time to vote on the trillion dollar bipartisan bill. >> this vote is an honest attempt to get something done. to get the ball rolling on the senate floor after the agreement was reached by the bipartisan group in the white house.
2:08 am
>> reporter: what is in the bill? so far it includes $580 billion in new spending, $300 billion for transportation and another $250 billion to fund broadband, power and water infrastructure but gop leaders say they won't sign off until they see what is in it. >> a simple principle, we are not going to the bill and so we know what the bill is. >> the economy does not need this tax and spending spree. jillian: republicans worried is another attempt to sneak through a liberal wish list. >> this is normal process and procedure on capitol hill. there are no secrets about what is and is legislation. it was agreed to in a bipartisan agreement. there is ample precedent and we support leadership at strategy moving forward. jillian: senator lindsey graham says things like amnesty are included he will fight it. >> they put amnesty in that
2:09 am
bill, i will try to deny them a quorum to pass the bill, 50/50 senate and the vice president doesn't count toward a quorum. >> reporter: cloture vote scheduled for wednesday is expected to be defeated as bipartisan discussions continue on how to fund this massive spending bill. todd: thank you very much. jillian: us military carrying out an airstrike against terrorists in somalia. it is the first strike in the country since president biden took office, and gone says it targeted out shabab fighters for links to al qaeda but the group is responsible for a number of high-profile bombings and other attacks and amalia. it is unclear if anyone died in the strike. todd: teachers across the country putting masking after recommendations kids old and 2 wear masks. the orange county teachers union writing, quote, much of the student population is not
2:10 am
vaccinated and hard for schools to determine risk as new variants emerge that might spread more easily among children. in illinois the union wants to require students to wear masks indoors. the american federation of teachers pushing for face coverings in schools regardless of vaccination status. jillian: republicans pressuring the president to keep title 42 in place as migrants continue to flood the southern border. the trump policies like illegal immigrants from seeking a fireman due to covid 19 oh lord is. just last month look at this number on your screen, nearly 105,000 title 42 expulsions. new fox news reporting, 135 detainees caught covid 19 during the first two weeks of this month. 900% increase compared to previous months. todd: milwaukee fans take to the street after their buckets win the championship but defeating the phoenix and 105-98 in game six. he was amazing last night.

2:16 am
i'm curious that the mayor has responded to your clients. >> crickets. we have not -- we hear from the politicians and elected folks in atlanta that it would be a disaster for the city of atlanta, repeating false numbers that 40% of revenue left atlanta would be destroyed and you would think if that was true coming out of their mouth they might pick up the phone and call us to talk to us how they could keep us together. we don't want to do this. i believe in marriage and i don't use the term to be cute but we filed for divorce and it is final because we have irreconcilable differences. we've not had a state at the table, we've not been listened to. the statistics are incredible. forget atlanta. atlanta has crazy crime numbers,
2:17 am
52% murder, 133% since 2019, shootings of 164%. when 300 police officers have basically quit in the last 12 months because they don't want to work for her, don't want to work for a city that doesn't appreciate them, we are receiving literally hundreds of email messages and resumes including resignation letters from some of these great officers, 300 cops, 3000 years of experience down the toilet. i can always say, we get buckhead city up and running, the police department up and running, we make both cities budget city and atlanta better safe and prosperous again. like you said we are living in a war zone, running on the saturday dog, you get run over, legs are amputated, you get
2:18 am
carjacked. jillian: we are seeing this play out not just in buckhead but in speech across the country, devastating to have to have a conversation every morning with people from different cities every day. the question i have is you talk about we want to file for divorce, create our own police department. do you have people willing to step up to that because we also had conversations where police are retiring early, how is that going to work? >> thank you for asking that question. it is a great question. we have two bills in the georgia assembly and the georgia senate. we had emergency hearings, played part of that before we came on. we believe the georgia legislature will put this on the ballot for november of next year
2:19 am
of 2022. it will be only the 90,000 legally registered voters in buckhead will vote on this. as to your question about will we be able to have recruitment and protection the answer is yes and we will do something nobody is doing in new york, chicago, portland or seattle or atlanta, we will love our police and welcomes them, pay them well, we are not going to throw them under the bus, stand with our men and women in blue and their families because we love them, they risked their lives every day and we have to show them the respect. the remaining officers who can't afford it in atlanta, arrests are down while crime is through the roof. that tells me -- the remaining officers just don't want to get fired, they don't want to get videotapes, they don't want to get prosecuted.
2:20 am
that is going on. we will direct all that and make everybody proud. jillian: do you know if anyone who would be willing to step up to the plate and be part of that force? >> i will send you their emails. i have 100 of them already. jillian: keep us updated, thanks for joining us. >> god bless you guys. todd: you two anchoring at the same time. 20 minutes after the hour. chuck schumer taking a page from nancy pelosi's playbook pushing today's vote on infrastructure bill that is not even written yet. congressman james comeer like things written down. congressman swalls of the well likes luxury things and apparently doing it with campaign cash, what he is accused of buying when we return. ♪♪ what a man got to do ♪♪ what a man got to do ♪♪ and one we explore. one that's been paved and one that's forever wild.

thanks for being here. >> good to be with you this morning. jillian: okay, so here is what parler has to say on the whole is the president overstepping the first amendment. quote: president biden still maintains any content in the alignment with the administration's recommendation is to be deemed misinformation and shouldn't be posted online. so, what is your opinion on this whole overstepping the boundaries when it comes to the first amendment conversation? >> this is legally complicated area at this point the administration is clearly over the line. here is what i mean be by complicated. the first amendment generally does not apply to privately owned entities like facebook or these other social media giants. they're allowed to censor with impunity, essentially however when the federal government acts in a way that encourages or coerces these companies to censor. now what they are doing is using private entities to take actions that they are not allowed to legally take under the first amendment. that crosses the line into what we call making a private entity
