3:04 am
police are still looking for the man accused of the shooting near that popular restaurant in d.c. two men got non life-threatening injuries from gunshot wounds. one was the apparent target. another appears to be an innocent bystander this follows several shootings in d.c. in days that includes that drive by shooting that left 6-year-old girl dead along the shooting outside of the nationals ballpark. in chicago 8 people put in the hospital following a drive by shooting there that involved a party bus where the shooter is also on the run. most of those victims are in serious condition. several other shootings happened in the city. one of those left a 15-year-old dead after he was shot in the head. >> if i pick up a gun. if you shoot indiscriminately into a crowd. not only will we find you we will take to you federal court and ship you off to south dakota and you will never see your family again. >> biden administration is responding to crime with a crack down on guns and sending a.g. garland to meet with local law

worked to death. obviously this is another one of those things where a couple guys got out of a honda civic. went up to two men and shot them both. one targeted. such randomness to it you don't know. you don't want to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. yesterday two people were in d.c. ainsley: it's at everyone's doorstep if you live in one of these major cities, it's in new york, atlanta, d.c., chicago. we are seeing it in different cities in texas and different cities in california. brian: if you go 10 minutes outside of washington and steve you know washington better than i do. i remember doing a shoot with tim scott. in 15 minutes i was in the most run down economically can challenged areas you can imagine. they try to and they usual usually are successful in keeping the center of washington safe. but on the outskirts, it's as bad as it gets. meanwhile, you wonder how much crime could be stopped if there was actually punishment to go along with that as in years
3:07 am
past. everything seems to have been reversed. and you don't have to tell that to dr. shirley washington. her son was killed last year. and she found out what happened to the murderer by hearsay. she wanted to give an exact statement speech and the next thing you know, the guy cut a deal. the prosecutor cut a deal behind her back. ainsley: she lives in missouri. we talked yesterday about those three suspects that they were charged, actually, with murders. and then the prosecutors did not show up for court. and the woman in charge of this prosecutor's office, she is a circuit attorney of st. louis. her name is kim gardner. she is under a lot of fire now. if you watch some of the local news coming out of missouri, everyone is just fired up because she is letting the -- because they are not showing up to prosecute these murder suspects are let off. and that happened there. the cases were dropped. steve: they had to drop three murder days in one week. ainsley: exactly. so dr. shirley washington cobb the woman that brian was talking
3:08 am
about. she is the mother of another murder victim. not related to those three. her son was out on the street one night and was beaten, brutally beaten there was no weapon. so, therefore, they gave the guy a plea deal. she is furious. britain brian without telling her. ainsley: she called and she says i'm just calling to feigned out if i need to book my plane ticket to missouri i she lives in texas. i don't want to sit through the trial and hear what happened to my son. she said there is a new prosecutor on the case we did a plea deal and that's already happened. is he going to jail now for eight years. she was furious. she said the guy was eating snacks. hear the snack bag drink ling while talking to him. never mentioned her son's name. and she said my son's case was handled as a throw away case. my son was not a throw away. steve: well, his name was dwight. ainsley: that's right, dwight washington. here is his mom. >> they had accepted a plea deal
3:09 am
and this particular prosecutor asked me, in fact, what happened. and i said what do you mean what happened? isn't that supposed to be your job to investigate? well, i knew i'm just starting and this will none trial. your son will be getting. we have it accepted from kim gardner's office an 8 year plea deal without my knowledge. >> equipment gardner to blame she is the leader of the alleged head of this department. steve: and that was a crime that should have gotten 20 years as you said a moment ago but instead 8 years. this is one of the problems all across the country. you know, police aren't, you know, we know that there are
3:10 am
fewer police on the street and a lot of police officers feel like the administration doesn't have their back. then you have got all these prosecutors who aren't filing charges against people. i have got a family member who was attacked in washington, d.c., jumped, knocked unconscious, wound up in the hospital wanted to file charges. the cops came, took a statement. and eventually the prosecutor talked to this person in my family and said, you know what? we don't want to file charges. this person has got a rap sheet but we're trying to rehab this person. and so, they said okay, not going to file charges. steve: did it to somebody else in two weeks. now that person is in prison. ainsley: dr. washington cobb says if he kills somebody else i hope that kim gardner knows she is responsible. her sons eyes were gowpgd out by the guy's hands and his jaw was broken. he was in the hospital and he died there. brian: 8 years he will be out. 10 minutes now after the hour.

headlines, the nypd is looking for a group though who brutally beat and robbed a woman in harlem. we do want to warn you the video is disturbing. the video shows three women and a man pulling a 61-year-old woman off her walker. pushing her to the ground and viciously beating her. at one point a woman is seen hitting the victim with a cooking pot. the suspect made off with the victim's walker, $22 and credit cards. the woman is recovering from her injuries. wow. president biden authorizing sanctions against communist cuban officials amid the crack down on antigovernment protest. the sanction target cuban defense minister lopez along with the country's feared special forces brigade known as the black berets. the unit has been rounding up protesters and journalists during demonstrations. biden warned cuban's government saying the sanctions are, quote just the beginning. portland mayor ted wheeler is being called out for missing the mark. he tweeted this invite to a welcome back festival includes concerts, roller skating and

3:18 am
that's the only only god one. steve: you ring opened up with secret pill in it. jillian: joel confirms, yes. steve: thank you, joel. brian: if you can get confirmation on this. stopped with the ring because they thought it was a bad message to kids that you can have a pill and fight crime or get stronger. right, joel? have you looked into this? joel joel i'm standing by. steve: working on it. brian: that was my favorite show. steve: and now tom brady no underdog. ainsley: no, he's not. all the other rings with the patriots? brian: yeah. ainsley: sorry. brian: except for the one from gizelle. steve: that's different. ainsley: do you think that's his favorite one? brian: he will say it is. steve: meanwhile, move on talk a little bit about the problem at our southern border. here's something. so you have seen the record number of migrants who are coming into the country. they just surrendered to the
3:19 am
border patrol and then they process them. well then what happens after that. well, let us tell you. if you are in the mcallen, texas, area. they, first of all they process them. and then they take them to a coronavirus testing spot across the street from the bus station. all right? then everybody gets tested. then they go into community center run by catholic charities where they arrange transportation next to the bus station. half the people take the bus north and half fly out. well, now, we know that is a problem with the bus have to to wait days to buy a bus there. people hanging around the bus stations. roy rodriguez the city manager for that mcallen rio grande. we don't have enough private bus seats to get everyone out. all of the seats are already purchased for tomorrow. if somebody wants to buy a bus
3:20 am
fare to head north they have to wait two days. steve: unbelievable. brian: this is obscene how they are getting to the border from other nations we don't understand. why they get in and open up the gates makes no sense. why texas, in particular, isn't arresting them and filing trespassing charges on them. even though the governor says he was going to do it for some reason he is not. and instead we are using n ls millions of dallas, maybe billions could have been spent securing the border to give them transportation interior of our country where they don't belong. don mclaughlin is dealing with it front and center. he's the mayor of it a town in texas where the migrants are invading his town are. >> being told told constantly by this administration oh, social distancing, wear your mask. get ready for a shutdown. don't go here. don't do that stay home. don't go around somebody that hasn't been vaccinated. i wish everybody would be vaccinated. that's their choice. yet, 1.2 million people come across that southern border.
3:21 am
they are not telling them oh, wait a minute. you been vaccinated? have you been anything? this is what we do. it seems like we are giving up our rights as u.s. citizens to accommodate foreign, illegal immigrants coming into our country. brian: joe biden was barely asked about that from don lemon his answer was ridiculous saying they were doing a good job getting people out of fittings. that he was not the question. why are they coming in to begin with. why aren't you stopping them? why are you defunding ice? why is border patrol so outmanned? why do you care so little about 1.5 million people coming into our country illegally but you you are going to knock on my door and ask me if i took a vaccine? unbelievable. steve: here's the other thing. we are all paying for their transportation. so they arrange the transportation through catholic charities but then it's the federal government that is actually paying for it obviously, greyhound and trailways would like more help. probably from the federal government. hey, buy us some more buses.
3:22 am
but, yesterday, madison cawthorn, congressman from the great state of north carolina. introduced a bill banning federal reimbursement to the airlines for transporting illegal migrants across the country. it is called the no fly for illegals act. and it does what a lot of people would like to do. it is follow the money. where are these millions and billions of dollars that are being used to transport these folks all across the country, where is that coming from exactly. brian: i'm getting emails from people saying why isn't somebody following the busses to find out where they are going and where these people go. ainsley: to your community. steve: i have seen one of those buses unload about two blocks from here. brian: no one is stopping them. unbelievable. who. steve: who is going to stop them? it's the federal government authorizing it. brian: where are the governors to say if you are trespassing you don't wait for president biden to say can i arrest them. ainsley: talk about he is what napping n. our schools.
3:23 am
are our kids going to be in masks this fall? the cdc saying that's optional. that's just a recommendation. not sure if your school will make that decision. i guess every state will have to make up their own mind. dallas brings us to the department of education. we learned fox news broke this story a few days ago with lawrence jones and a few other reporters aishah hasnie. they looked through the guidelines. there was a manual sent out. it was emailed out to 70,000 plus school districts around the country. from the federal government, from the department of education saying these are the guidelines for reopening our schools safely. you scroll down to page 9, there was a link to a radical teaching group's website. it's called the abolitionist teaching network. the department of education was pressed on this and they said the federal government has said oh that was an error we didn't mean to link to this radical group. peter doocy was at the white house. he asked jen psaki about it. listen. >> the education department admits they made a mistake in their guide for reopening --
3:24 am
>> -- how so? pete: well, they included advice from the abolitionist teaching network. and they came out and said that was not supposed to be in there. is the administration going to follow up with school districts to make sure that the abolitionist teaching network material is not in lesson plans? >> what you are referring to is a citation and a report of which there were a thousand citations so i'm quite impressed with your researchers for finding one of a thousand citations. it was an error in a lengthy document to include this citation. this specific site does not represent the administration's view and we don't endorse the recommendations of this group. and i believe it's been removed or is in the process of being removed. brian: sounds contrite and regretful. smirking, mocking with trying to hold back a smile when a legitimate question that you should be embarrassed that's
3:25 am
clawed seems extremely well produced. you wonder who is in charge there? how does that sneak through to 74,000 different districts around the country. steve: well, because this particular group, this abolitionist teaching network espouses crt, critical race theory and social justice and things like that. for jen psaki to say look, congratulations to your research team for finding this out of thousands of citations. actually in the federal government there are 182 citations and 47 footnotes at the end. so it's not thousands. so it wasn't that hard to find. that was the only organization that was linkedin the citation when it comes or in the entire document when it came to that particular kind of help. so, was it a mistake? we have had people on the air over the last 24 hours say things don't go into federal documents without somebody at the white house knowing.
3:26 am
particularly the fact that the deputy secretary for education is closely associated with this group. this group got started in 2020. and now 2021, it's part of the federal government's program? that was a mistake. ainsley: quick click on their website and watch videos this is radical. this is part of the department of education. they say it was an error. betsy devos you know her former education secretary under president trump. she said this was not an error. they just got caught. listen. >> this notion that it was a mistake is an absolute falsehood. having been there at the department forever four years and working through the approval processes for anything that is put out from the department, i know full well that there was -- there were eyes on and there was full knowledge of this going on. it's all parts of the continuum that the biden administration is promoting through left wing policies as promulgated by the department of education. and it's another very good
3:27 am
reason why parents should continue to raise their voices. should continue to demand that they have control of their kids' education. steve: so there you go. she makes a good point but then again leo made the point we have made on this air over the last 24 hours and that is the administration says it was a mistake because they got caught. >> the biden administration was trying to conceal this now they are lying about it was an error. you cannot believe them. they have tried to put critical race theory in every aspect of government. in the state department. in the military. and definitely in education. we have to call them on this. critical race theory is a racist theory. i want to destroy this myth right now. people of all colors, including myself, oppose critical race theory because it's based on a lie. this country was founded on liberty and freedom and the idea that people are -- should be
3:28 am
looked at by skin color is insulting to everything that what america the standards for. steve: so that particular document, i believe, emailed that to 13 now, school districts throughout the country. the big question now is they have had for months, how many of the school districts actually contacted the abolitionist teaching network to say hey, can you help us? and did they? brian: amazing how quick they turned around and admitted their mistake. but the attitude that jen psaki displayed showed how what a mocking way in which they believe people that are concerned about this. they think it's a joke and it's not. and they are about to find out through an election. ainsley: if you watch most of the media outlets. they will say critical race theory is not happening in our schools. >> no one even covered this the "the washington post" didn't cover this story. ainsley: the "new york times." we have had countless people on our show we all know that if you watch regularly parents say we have evidence of and it showed it to us. lawrence jones is say going you have the evidence of this hang in your school.
3:29 am
please it's not on social media. it can be tracked strife steve heard from teachers actual evidence being taught sure looks like critical race theory. brian: up next. take a look at shameless robbery caught on camera in los angeles. our next guest is an lapd official who says the message is simple. criminals, you are winning. like mac. who can come to a stop with barely a bobble. with usaa safepilot, when you drive safe... can save up to 30% on your auto insurance. usaa. what you're made of, we're made for. get a quote today.

3:36 am
not fair to the people doing the right thing what merchandise. >> yeah. absolutely. it hurts the workers who try to fend for their families. they just want to have a great environment for their family and it cuts their hours. businesses lose. and for them to say oh, there is insurance for businesses. that doesn't matter. because their hours are cut. which affects their employees. ainsley: then their insurance goes up once they file a claim. these two men were neither charged or nor they were not arrested either. gavin newsom says that crime is going down in that state. listen. >> there are some people that say some of the policies championed by democrats like prop 47 and others are making crime worse. what do you say to that? >> the evidence doesn't back it up. the last three decades we we have actually seen significant crime. i think that's easy -- for

we want to have those people behind the counter who can make a difference. steve: yep, one of the country's most popular burger joint contacting applicant from as far back as 2017 in the desperate push to fill jobs. but, when pressed on the issue, at a town hall in ohio, a couple of nights ago, president biden says just pay those people more mope, they will come back. our next guest strongly disagrees. here to explain restaurant owner and ceo of jeff ruby culinary entertainment, britney rubier miller. good morning to you. >> good morning. thank you for having me. steve: okay. so, you know, i understand one of the reasons we are talking to you is you are friend of the guy who asked joe biden the question the other day and you said that joe biden just doesn't know what he was talking about. >> well, i actually don't want to say what he is talking about. i want to clarify a little bit. i think there is a misconception
3:44 am
here. i know joe -- or john very, very well. john lanny who is speaking. i think he was dumbfounded by the answer. and so, you know, i would like to bring light and some clarity to some of the statements that were made. one in particular was that, you know, we just need to pay more than $7 or $8 an hour that i don't know a restaurant brart in this city that is paying 6, 7 an hour. i think when you consider what he mentioned aed about the favor that he did not shutting us down, i mean, here is a -- here is a devastating time and we really, really need, people think we are out of the clear. we are not. we opened our doors back up. the guests came. the employees unfortunately have not. and, for us, you know, jeff ruby steakhouse we are in the midwest. we have about 650 employees and we are high volume. when i'm empowering and encouraging our managers after a

3:46 am
skills difference. you know, people people are looking for different skills during thivment that's one of the reasons they are not coming back. >> well, the reason why i say it's a complex issue is, you know,y disagree with president biden that maybe they aren't coming back. there is absolutely room to believe that the it's because of the $300 extra unemployment i also believe that people got used to what it was like to work 9:00 to 5:00 and not be in this industry which is why i'm advocating. one of the greatest in the america. entry level and make your way all the way to a very experienced manager, get into the operations get into ownership. this is the american dream. and without restaurants this country, it would be devastating. and so, you know, i think the big keep here that i would push is for congress to -- they just had the entree act.
3:47 am
the bill that's not been set forth before congress to replenish the restaurant revitalization act. 60 presidential under funded. 200,000 applications that are still pending. some people got it some people didn't. and if what the president said is true, that people are just not coming back, we need time to not only -- fund to not only make up what was lost, but now to stabilize so we could go on marketing tour like this and encourage those people to get back to the restaurant industry. we need restaurants to survive. that was the opportunity to come on here and thank you for asking me. i really appreciate it but we need to do everything we can do. get the pompoms out and start cheerleading for this industry. steve: listen, people are hungry and restaurants are a good place to go to you don't have to cook. britney ruby miller we thank you for joining us today. >> thank you for having me. steve: you bet. meanwhile it is a beautiful day here in the northeast. let's check in senior meteorologist janice dean for

4:02 am
of "fox & friends." it's been a long weekend. thank you for joining us on this friday. ainsley: friday. steve: that's why we got mr. pardony. it is a friday every friday during the summer. our "fox & friends" summer concert series. is he our featured entertainer. brian: these artists happy to get back on stage. comedians same thing. happy to be going out and doing things. he will be talking about that. a bunch of shows coming up. meanwhile back to the future for us. we are debating masks, and you know how the cdc works. one minute they ban something. the next minute they permit it and visa versa. i expect on a friday they will come out and say everyone has to wear masks again even if you are vaccinated. something though that degree. the white house indicating that might, indeed, be coming. steve: okay. let's talk a little bit about masks. the white house has called out florida governor ron desantis as you heard just a moment ago for opposing school mask mandates across the country. ainsley: meanwhile the biden administration insists there is still no decision on a nationwide mask mandate. brian: you think they are just
4:03 am
worried about desantis, still? meanwhile, griff jenkins joins us live from washington to break it all down, griff? griff: good morning, happy friday. the only thing the white house is saying so far is we follow the science, we have a war of words with the white house scolding florida's governor ron desantis for refusing idea soon advise kids under 12 must wear that face covering there has been talk about people advocating at the federal level imposing compulsory masks on kids. we're not doing that in florida. okay? we need our kids to breathe. griff: white house press secretary jen psaki claiming maskless schools will put kids at risk while bragging her children are quite adjusted to covering their faces in public. >> if i were a parent in florida, that would be greatly concerning to me. because kids under the age of 12
4:04 am
are not vaccinated. they are not eligible yet. >> after that desantis' press secretary shooting back saying to breitbart news saying this parents like psaki who feel more comfortable muze ling their children are not following the science. what w. that said, parents are allowed to make their own choices in florida. masks just won't be mandated in schools. meanwhile, psaki insists no determination has been reached at the white house on mandating masks. instead, deferring to the cdc. >> we are regularly in touch and have regular meetings with cdc about how to continue to address the vice. this hasn't been a decision made. it will always be led with public health guidance and they have made that very clear. griff griff where does the cdc stand? they are sticking with its current guidance. director rochelle wolenski saying it is still an individual's choice to wear mask if vaccinated, steve, ainsley,
4:05 am
brian? brian: makes sense to give kid a choice. thanks so much, griff. parents out there i know you said yesterday i want my daughter to wear mask. that is your decision. we are in a country where parents make those decisions. statistically we have a year and how low the numbers and possibilities are. if a kid does get sick the chances are almost statistically zero percent of them having a serious illness under 5. and the whore says under 5 years old we don't recommend you wear mask at all. upwards of that the likelihood from 5 to 17 also, when you balance it out on behavior issues that go with it and denying people a life for the next two years statistically somebody not in danger in lading their life. ainsley: i'm not saying i don't have an optionmaybe someone at t the vaccine or mom is pregnant and can't get the vaccine until
4:06 am
the baby is born. can you get a vaccine if you are pregnant a lot of moms are choosing not to. that little child at home could have a option of wearing a mask. steve: political thing for the white house. if they change the mask mandate, that would be bad for joe biden. joe biden made it very clear. if you get the vaccine, you don't have to wear the mask. and a lot of people got the vaccine. and they don't want to put the mask on again. it's the 90 million measures who are not vaccinated and that's why there is such a push right now. as we just heard in griff's report, kids under 12 can't get vaccinated and that's the problem. there is also not a lot of data regarding that. according to our doctor on prime time talking to brian last night. >> we're doing all of this stuff to kids. we put tremendous restrictions on kids for a yearna. 50 million kids with no data. we don't have any studies on masks on children. yet, you see this mask district attorney bait, we are reliving
4:07 am
what happened at the beginning of the pandemic and the absence of good research you get everybody's opinion. where's the study. between the cdc and the nih, they have got 40,000 imply years, call the 335 people who have died from covid reportedly, find out if it really was from covid and whether or not it's clustered in certain types of kids, kids with certain co-morbidities and make reasonable medical certainty for healthy kids. >> steve: doctor has a great point. there simply has not been did enough research done with children. there is an interesting story in the daily mail today at a sleep away camp up in new york state, the parents of all the kids there got a letter. apparently yesterday. that said that 31 of the 500 campers had coronavirus. duop 31 of them. under 12 none of them vaccinated. none of the kids over 12 who
4:08 am
were vaccinated have the coronavirus. so, you foe, you look at that the problem if you are not vaccinated easily transmissible. brian: that's true. guess what? those kids stats particular particularly will be fine and they will have the antibody. steve: we hope. brian: statistics said they are. seniors first because statistics said they are the most vulnerable and florida did the best job at that work your way back and you up to personal decisions. the patients now have kids that are going to have antibodies this administration, for some reason, anthony fauci leading the charge medically, does not want to take in natural immunity to begin with and it's goes to be a parental decision at this point. ainsley: let's talk about the jobs numbers. every week we get the jobless claims. we get a number. and this was pretty surprising when we got the latest numbers much the jobless claims have made a big surprise jump to
4:09 am
419,000. truck drivers, there aren't enough truck drivers out there. there aren't enough people to work in our restaurants, employers are offering perks for new hires. employees are struggling to find people to come into the office or come into the restaurants to work. steve: you know, the number one state with the biggest jump in first time jobless claims is the great state of michigan. because they are trying to build new cars but because they don't have chips to run the cars, they can't build the cars so those people are on unemployment. but that is different from the fact that so many people have been getting the additional 300 bucks to stay home and so, you know, it's kind of like i will wait for that to run out before i go looking for a job. brian: the commerce secretary she was surprised that the numbers went up. she thinks she has an idea why. let's see if you agree with this. >> how would you assess worker shortage that many employers are
4:10 am
finding they are having difficulty getting back up, especially in some of the hospitality and tourist areas? >> it is acute. there is every business i talk to says that they need to find talent. so i don't know i would call it a shortage per se. i would say there is a skills gap. what i hear all the time is from companies. we are ready to hire but people need to have the skills. so that's what we have to get at the business of. by the way, we need to make sure that women and people of color and people in rural areas have those digital skills so they can get those good jobs. brian: i'm not sure that restaurants wouldn't train you, especially if they need you, like, for example, my daughter walked in, got hired the same day. they are dying for workers.
4:11 am
that is an explanation, i'm sure, in some sectors that predated the pandemic. we did a million segments with mike rowe on that because we need people with skills and who know the trades. that's not what's happening. even president biden came out and said, you know, the hospitality industry, the restaurant industry, going to have to suck it up for while. that has nothing to do with training. they train you. they are dying for you. steve: you don't need a lot of skills to work at a restaurant to take somebody's order or to bus a table or something like that. what she was talking about was, you know, people need skills, so we need more money to give people. brian: billions. steve: for more training to they can get with the gig economy or could become fluent with cyber skills. essentially what she is saying is we need more money in the federal government so we can train people so they don't have to work in a restaurant.
4:12 am
ainsley: britney rubier miller was on our show. you interviewed her earlier. she is a restaurant owner in ohio. here she is talking about the struggles of hiring workers after covid. >> here is a devastating time and we really, really need -- people think that we are out of the clear. we are not. we opened our doors back up. the guests came. the employee, unfortunately, have not. when i am empowering and encouraging our managers after a pandemic of being shut down completely to take less guest counts so we can make sure we are giving a great experience to our guests that's a sad day. we are coming out of debt. we have lost revenue. and if we have 650 employees, i have the luxury of saying cut back on guests. the mom and pops do not. steve: she also said there is a honeymoon period after the pandemic. and this is the commerce came back but the workers did not. and that's the problem. ainsley: where did i hear this?
4:13 am
this morning "fox & friends first." interviewed someone a restaurant owner who said i had to go back from job applicants from years ago. steve: people from white castle. ainsley: because we are dying for workers. to your point she says it's a lack of talent. when i was a waitress. i was tieing to get a job. they wouldn't hire me. they would hire me as a hostess because i didn't have experience. finally someone said we will make you a waitress. they taught me how to do it you learn immediately. steve: you had a skills gap. brian: i had to go to bennigan's university and study like six days of tests how to make a monday christo. brian: i watched someone. i had to be able to recognize it to deliver it to the guy that orders. steve: did you wear khakis. ainsley: personality tests outback steakhouse personality test. you had to memorize the local menu and learn what comes in each dish. brian: i remember at beef steak charlies i did not know shrimps
4:14 am
had shells on them. that was interesting. more on that later. steve: you cannot write a cookbook. brian: absolutely not. i said wow they are crunchy. ainsley: did you cook the turkey with the bag inside, too. brian: probably. we were pro-giblet as a family but did i not know it came in a bag. >> we have nice at people at purdue to take out the body organs and put them in a bag. steve: we apologize we know you are having breakfast. ainsley: why too they put the bag in there. brian: sure. where else are you going to keep a liver. steve: all right, anyway. ainsley: jillian, headlines for us. jillian: my first interview for a server job one of the questions was what do you say when someone asks for fillet, i didn't know. i didn't get the job as a server, i was a busker. i was allowed to deliver bread to the table. i became a short time later. brian: you didn't know. jillian: i didn't know. i was young. young and dumb and then i grew
4:15 am
up. it's okay. it happens. steve: real job now. jillian: i do have a job now. let's gyp your headlines with this story bowers we do have serious news to get. to say two people are shot in washington, d.c. gunshots ringing out near a row of popular restaurants. video shows diners frantically taking cover crawching down in booths after hearing the shots. d.c. police released this footage showing the suspect driving off in a black is he dab. police still looking for them. the two hurt in the shooting are expected to recover. and stunning video shows firefighters in california racing in to flames to save homes from the tamarack fire and not far away the dixie fire reaches mega fire status. surpassing 100,000 acres burned. at least three counties are under evacuation orders. >> just trying to stay calm. >> thank you to all the firefighters. very emotional. jillian: i can't imagine that.
4:16 am
the dixie fire is about 17% contained. the tamarack fire, which has crossed border lines into nevada is 4% contained. and in addition to devastating wildfires, california also facing spiking crime and homeless crisis but governor gavin newsom is offering $330 million in tax breaks to hollywood. the new law brings the available total to 660 million over two years. it comes as nearby new mexico sees its own entertainment boom. the state estimates 35% tax incentive for the industry has brought in 623 million so far this year. and now, to a massive deer crossing in milwaukee. imagine this. thousands of bucs line the street to celebrate the title. finals nvp leading the festivities, lifting the larry

. brian: all right. here the latest at least two texas democratic lawmakers have finally returned home after dozen's fled their state over 50 to spend a week in washington, d.c. protesting the g.o.p.'s proposed voting laws and six of them even contracted the covid-19 virus in the process. now you see some of the pictures of their private flight provided by beto o'rourke's group there without masks and you also see beer. democratic state representative harold dutton returned to texas earlier this week and joins us now. harold, as state representative i know you have a duel -- dua lmplets responsibility. responsibility staterep. you are concerned about your sister's health. you sat covid-19 was spreading. you didn't want to be
4:23 am
susceptible to that see her with white blood cell countdown. how is she? >> well, so far she is all right. i am actually in austin now. she is houston n. houston at my house. and so, you know, when i came home, i didn't realize that the covid was being spread among the group so rapidly. and my intentions were to come home -- i had two problems i needed to check on her. but i had also left her with the garage door opener that didn't work anymore. and i didn't leave her the key because everything was fine when i left but i got home and ended up sunday, last sunday i had to come over and put a whole new motor in for the garage door opener because she could get out of the house but she couldn't lock the garage. so i had to do that. but, since then, what i did is i came on to austin because i was going to go back but when the covid outbreak happened, i thought well, i can't risk that. so i have got to stay in
4:24 am
houston. and then i thought rather than stay in houston, why don't i go to austin and begin somehow or another talking with some of the people who had sponsored this bill. and on yesterday, i had about an hour and a half meeting with the sponsor of the bill and two of the other people on the committee. and we went through the bill piece by piece and i think they have a better understanding of it. and i think i have a better understanding of where they are. brian: wow, so are you -- so, basically, to give everyone outside texan understanding what's at stake. there is post pandemic, the -- you guys were tee baiting on what the regulation should be when it comes to voting. and there is such a dissupporter, all 50-plus democratic representatives got on a plane and left rather than give republicans the quorum they needed. that's 100 votes in order to pass these rules. >> right. brian: because of that, you felt you had no other option but to
4:25 am
leave. in retrospect, taking a private plane without masks with beer on that plane, while everybody else sits in hyper space and nothing gets done in washington, d.c., possibly of infecting the vice president and others. was this whole thing a mistake? >> well, first of all, i was not on the plane. i went on my own dime. i was not -- i wasn't one -- i was in houston at the time that they made that decision i thought well rather than flying back to austin and then get on a plane and go to washington. why don't i just get on a plane in houston and go to washington which is what i did. i think in hindsight, of course, on the commercial flight, we all had on masks. and in hindsight, i'm sure that they would all wear mavericks had they known the outcome of where we are now. brian: so, harold, you have a reputation of somebody -- willing to take on their observe party, especially democrats and
4:26 am
republicans in texas have a habit ofworking with each other the way i understand it democrats, you included are upset with 24-hour voting only in one county for one day during the pandemic. you are upset there is no more drive-thru voting. and you are upset that there is voter i.d. required instead of signature verification. am i right on those three counts? >> well, and also, that there seems to be in the bill grant more authority to the poll watcher than it does the precinct judge. let me tell you why those are significant. because, and i explained this to the members yesterday. on the surface, it looks like those are benign, i mean. brian: yeah: not necessarily for this person or that person or this group or that group. buff the reality is that the majority of the people who took advantage of those, both of those provisions were black and brown so when you take it away. what you are doing is you are at
4:27 am
least give the appearance much targeting black and brown folk. and so my point yesterday was give them some options because those are the same things we dealt with in the past. it might seem rather benign that somebody would ask you how many had [inaudible] bar of soap. at the same time, the fact of the matter is that was used discriminary torely against black and brown folks so here we are essentially follow the same pattern and that's what we're trying to prevent. we have increasing access to voting and, in fact, in texas, we spent a heck of a lot of time trying to expand the reach of the second amendment so that everybody could carry a gun.
4:28 am
so we expand the opportunities for people to vote. brian: harold, you sound personally reasonable everything you bring up true. in the past those things actually happened. you look at today, there is now 13 days of early voting. you have added a situation where counties have to require people who use mail-in voting to contact them if anything is wrong to cure those ballots. the drive-thru voting only took place during the pandemic. and the 24-hour as well. and i think it's almost a disparity to minorities to think they don't want to get out of the car. why is that a black or white or minority or majority issue? >> well, again, i go back to the point that i made. that because disproportionately minority folks utilized it, then that became in targeting to do away with it. brian: right. >> almost as if what you are doing is trying to do away with minority participation. brian: do you really think after talking to dan patrick and the
4:29 am
governor, do you really think they want to get rid of minority -- you could tell racism when you see it, do you think they are being racist in putting any of these things together? do you think they don't want minorities to vote? >> well, i know that it seems to me that having a smaller tent is what they're after. and, in fact, i had to argue that we have an expression of intent in the bill and what it's supposed to do. i raised the point yesterday with them that shouldn't the intent be to increase access to voting, which is not in there at this point? and so the author -- that should be one of the provisions in the bill regarding intent. and so, i don't call them racist. i don't say that but i do know in the application of the provisions that they are advocating, it has the disproportionate impact on minority.
4:30 am

4:37 am
license. here we are today. my second hot air balloon and seventh festival and flying for 10 years. janice: tell me about the weather. it's deceiving you see sunny skies but you have to have perfect specification. >> balloons are really sensitive to wind. somebody might go outside and see the trees flutter and flags dancing lightly that will be too windy. we are looking for conditions 7 miles per hour or less. clear skies, great visibility, really we fly at sunrise and sun set those are the most ideal times where the weather systems are the calmest. janice: you really look at the forecast every year for this festival. >> absolutely. we watch this very, very closely. really we are microweather. you are going to tell us about the weather in this region. i need to know the weather in this specific field at this very minute not the weather in the new york region. janice: how excited are you this year. last year we didn't have it because of covid. i think a lot of people are going to want to come out and have a great time. >> we had a dozen balloons out here this morning. it's going to be packed weekend.

mandates, we want have mandates on the vaccines, shutdown churches and schools and other large gatherings because we believe in personal freedom and responsibility. it is one of the key cornerstones of our country. i think if president biden and vice president harris and others on the left are serious about saving lives through the vaccine they should admit they were wrong when they tamped down on operation work speed at the beginning and give donald trump and his administration the credit they are due for helping get this vaccine created safely, quickly and effectively, that would make a huge difference and they should take some responsibility and step up and fix the mistake they made by casting so much doubt. >> 52% of republicans are vaccinated and the president doesn't have to go far to see

numbers, this week, 419,000, that is the most in the last two months and people struggling to find workers, truck drivers to deliver items to the grocery stores, there's a lot. people are offering perks for new hires and if you ask this administration for commerce secretary said it is not a worker shortage but a shortage in talent. listen. >> a worker shortage many employers are finding when getting back up in front of the hospitality and tourist areas. >> it is a cute. every business i talked to says they need to find talent. i don't know if i would call a shortage per se. i would say there is a skills gap. what i hear all the time, from
5:10 am
companies, we are ready to hire, but people need to have the skills. that's what we have to get at the business side and we need to make sure women and people of color and people in rural areas have digital skills so they can get those good jobs. >> if you don't have a job you are not talented enough apparently. >> not only is she missing the mark here, but it is hard for businesses to hire employees when the biden administration is paying them to sit home and do nothing, they need to stop paying people to stay home. if they care about workforce development and put that money into job skills training and matching those people with high skilled jobs and stop wasting taxpayer money keeping people at home when they are capable it should be at work and engaged in the workforce.
5:11 am
we are seeing the effects of that in these numbers over the last couple months. brian: president biden kind of admitted the extra money was keeping people on the sidelines. if it is happening it is over so forget about it. a couple days ago here on the channel on "fox and friends" we broke the story about how the department of education in looking to reopen american schools sent out 10,000 school districts a roadmap to reopening and in the footnotes, if you have any questions on social and emotional learning.

this is a country created on the opposite idea. if i push this idea not only will it destroy our country but raising a generation of kids to hate the country and hate each other i can't think of anything more damaging or opposite to who we are as a country. let it not be lost on anyone that the radical left is not looking to change policies but to fundamentally change who we are as a country and not sit back and hold their feet to the fire and call them out to push this outlandish radical left teaching particularly when it is in schools, to take away their funding and the aggressive manner possible. this is something i cannot allowed to take place in schools across the country. >> what else are they hiding. sneaking the sins of the right doesn't find out. pretty scary.

taliban gained, largely due to lack of us presence particularly airpower, get you to figure out what the taliban is up to. that is a possibility the taliban will take control. certainly president biden made the decision to pull us forces out, does not want the taliban to take control, which would likely happen. reasonable people can be on both sides of the decision and we've discussed that on "fox and friends" but what they fail to do is put in place a transition and strategy to deal with the situation about us forces on the ground and to find places to position our airplanes to work out a

>> president biden authorized sanctions against communist cuban officials in the wake of that crackdown during those antigovernment protests. in a statement the president wants, quote, this is just the beginning of the united states will sanction individuals responsible for the oppression of the cuban people. geraldo rivera is, joins us to react. i am doing okay. president biden looks like he was going to essentially lift some of the trump era sanctions against cuba, but they had a big crackdown on the protesters and he can't do that. >> he was heading in that direction. more than the tropical drink, the aspiration of millions of cubans living under communist rule and the scale and spread
5:44 am
of these protests in cuba really is unprecedented so i absolutely agree with president biden to sanction the defense minister in the black parade, the elite unit that has been responsible for knocking heads, the brutal crackdown. with the sanctions imposed they can't have access to international markets, no trade and even remittances, the money going from cuban-americans to those in cuba have been cut off for now. i think we may be throwing the baby out with the bathwater. particularly sanctioning, not allowing vaccines, the coronavirus vaccines to get to the strickland islands. we can't let cubans die because their leaders are communists. in the name of humanity we should send food to save the innocent. brian: one of the things the
5:45 am
united states the government could do to help the people of cuba is figure out how to get them in that service. we were able to see that uprising two weeks ago because they had service to social media companies and stuff like that that could coordinate rallies and protests all across the island. they have since pulled the plug on it but there have been some suggestions that they could float a weather balloon over it, get them internet so they could get the word out? >> i am all for that. this is in -- a group of liberals and progressives, they are doing more harm to ordinary cubans than the cuban government than the cuban reply to all this is the united states should look after its own acts of repression, they point to the riots and looting.
5:46 am
in terms of the internet, that is part of my suggestion. open up to cuba. let the cruise ships go there. that the cell phones go there. let satellite go there. let the every day us commerce and life, if we open up cuba the way we open up vietnam and china, a better chance of affecting the government's relationship with the cuban people. >> thanks for weighing in from cleveland. now let's check in with janice dean on location in new jersey in front of a sunny days kind of balloon that looks a lot like the book you did. >> make your own sunshine? that is exactly what is happening. this is the official balloon
