2:15 am
he received an order to try us forces from afghanistan by 2021. now huffington post correspondent which pops up in my day planner, trump really and truly wanted to leave biden with a complete catastrophe in afghanistan and would have evacuated 0 afghan allies. even democratic lawmakers were critical of this testimony but the mainstream media is all in but trump mode. >> let's take that out of the equation. we know who they are and what they represent, activists for the democratic party. jim shooter i wouldn't mind commenting on, he is billed as a serious and sober anchor for cnn. what is really mentioned his before he went to cnn he worked in the obama biden state department so he will defend
2:16 am
this, that is his reflex because that is who he was before he played an anchor on tv but defending president biden on afghanistan is like defending, i will keep the eagles out of this, baltimore orioles before - 45 days in the first place. there is no defense particularly when the commander-in-chief says he doesn't recall one of the most important conversations he had as an adult to this point in his life when his top generals were telling him to keep 3500 troops in afghanistan to keep things in check at bagram airbase into avoid the catastrophe we witnessed in august and americans left behind and 13 us servicemembers dead. there is no defending this but you will find some folks that do that because it is in their dna at this point and we will continue moving forward. >> like defending the giants and eagles. i had to go there. in all seriousness do you think
2:17 am
enough people will be demanding transparency and accountability that we will get questions that the american people deserve? >> i saw that happen at the press conference yesterday where you didn't just have peter doocy or jackie heinrich asking tough questions but terry moran for abc who pressed jen psaki and there was a notable back and forth as far as asking can you give me one military leader as far as recommending to the president that he should pull all troops out of afghanistan and not leave any peacekeeping force behind, she got very defensive which is rare for her, more defensive than usual. it is done too sporadically. of donald trump and dennis and said he didn't recall talking to general xyz about something this important the apocalypse would
2:18 am
be upon us as far as media coverage and you would see a 24/7 on abc, cbs, nbc, cnn and others. todd: talking about biden but trump still, it has not gone away in their minds. another area where the media is going after somebody would expect them to support his kirsten cinema renewing their attacks against the democrats another -- senator for opposing the president biden's spending spree, writing so the point in case you are tuning in hashtag trojan horse saying she is a shill for corporate lobbyists but doesn't that line of attack failed considering most of america's freaked out about the debt that comes with this and not just your corporations. >> not just that but inflation already happening, it is hard to believe it will devalue the dollar more.
2:19 am
one point you made, but trump can't be an argument anymore because president biden has been in office coming up on 10 months. you can't continue to blame the other guy. whatever happens going forward the past summer president biden owns that and if you want to change course from donald trump you can do that. it is revolting to see the traps on christian, the party of goodwill and cinema - one of the largest spending bills in us history and the bullying will only strengthen cinema's resolve it doesn't look like the type that will fall over because people yelling at her and some columnists saying she should do something she does not want to do. jillian: have a good day. >> go ohs. todd: ohio senate candidate says the border crisis is deeply personal for him, took him 13 years to become a us citizen the right way. jillian: he returned from the border and joins us live.

jillian: our next guest says the fight over immigration his personal to him after integrating legally to the us from colombia at the age of 5, he traveled to the border monday to see the crisis firsthand. republican ohio senate candidate joins us with what he saw. can you tell us your experience at the border and what you saw happening there? >> much worse than you could ever imagine. this was going on for months. i talked to the people of del rio, i drove into mexico to talk to them, people coming here for months and months except only 100 or 200 at a time and they are released in the us, there was a line built between two trees and one side of the river to cross easily and it wasn't
2:25 am
until tens of thousands of people, incredible application of duty by the administration. jillian: the border patrol agents have to be vaccinated by november or be fired, this is a whistleblower report coming out, and this is alarming because a lot of people are up in arms over the fact that migrants who are coming here illegally don't have to be vaccinated and some of them are released into the united states where american citizens have restrictions upon them. nurses and doctors getting fired if they don't want to get vaccinated. what do you make of what this whistleblower is saying? >> it is an assault on the border patrol and these people are overworked, victimized, you saw the administration latch
2:26 am
onto this idea, the idea they have to get vaccinated yet tens of thousands of people coming across, and evidently the people i talked to in jewelry oh, a case of leprosy came across, people stationed for months in a park in our tuna, and border patrol agents, front lines in this invasion have freedoms taken away, it is crazy. jillian: can we handle having fewer border patrol agents? >> these people are so overwhelmed. i talked to people who worked in del rio who when the bridges closer to take 3 hours to get to work because the only way there was hours away. a lot of stations between mexico and the us weren't even manned.
2:27 am
we can't afford to lose one single border patrol agent. we need many many more. we need backup. the us military should be providing aid and last thing we should do is anything that minimizes our border patrol is there. jillian: it to you 13 years to become a citizen. i imagine it was if not the, one of the promised moments of your life. what did the experience means you and how it is seeing what these border agents are dealing with and sounds and people who live there across these border towns what they are seeing right now. talk a little bit about that. >> we shouldn't have any debate about there's only one way to come to the us. a line, people need to wait in line. in my case it was 13 years. my mom convinced me, it was so - i read the declaration of
2:28 am
independence, the federalist papers. jillian: well, we appreciate you joining us and sharing everything you saw at the border, senate candidate in ohio, thank you for joining us. todd: let's go live to the queen city of charlotte, north carolina. the people of cincinnati might beg to differ. jillian: janice dean is here with the fox weather forecast. did you hear the thunder boomers last night? >> janice: we had a cold front moved through, some areas got storms, lightning and thunder in my neighborhood was quite impressive and now we have cooler dryer air, 57 in new york, much cooler air moving
2:29 am
into the northwest as well. there are some changes as we get into the fall season and the potential for not only cooler weather but rain and even mountain snow across the northwest. it is happening and there is the heavy rainfall, the front will stall and move slowly bringing potential for storms and heavy rainfall which could lead to flash flooding especially in texas so that is an area we have to watch. the rest of the country not bad in the northeast enjoying the taste of fall, 67 degrees, so great and we are watching hurricane sam, category 4 storm. it will stay away from the us. we have to keep a close watch because it comes pretty close over the next couple days especially this weekend and the high surf and the rip currents, my husband is excited about going surfing on the east coast
2:30 am
but i'll is still him be careful because these systems come in and brings potential for good surf if you are a good surfer. he might be taking a few days off. todd: i will write him a note. time now 29 minutes after the hour, a big issue came up in the senate hearing, general milley's call's to china meant to de-escalate tension. want your clothes to smell freshly washed all day without heavy perfumes? now they can! with downy light in-wash scent beads. it has long-lasting light scent,

2:35 am
of the joint chiefs of staff general mark millie declares his china calls insisting he was not trying to undermine donald trump. >> i was communicating to my chinese counterpart on instructions to de-escalate the situation. at no time was i attempting to change or influence the process. todd: here with his reaction, pete hegseth on the streets of nashville, tennessee. >> not only it is a a political position but he has always been an utterly political animal. not just that he was calling the chinese with approval or not approval and there's a lot of ambiguity about that but we are not going to attack, i will give you a heads up if there's an attack but we have a strategic
2:36 am
adversary or at worst enemy in the chairman of the joint chiefs taking it upon himself whether there was tacit knowledge elsewhere or not to maintain communication because he thinks he is the keeper of america's defense prerogative. it was jarring to watch that yesterday and you add that on top of the fact that he openly talked about these books to brandish his image whether off the regular on the record not to mention him attempting to defend the embarrassing withdrawal in afghanistan. he was in the hot seat but it didn't feel he felt any weight or accountability. all the anger and frustration came from senators, marsha blackburn saying you three might be the three who broke the military was a poignant moment because it is not just losing a war a perception of it but the
2:37 am
feeling the generals at the top are so politically defense of their own image it doesn't have as much to do with defeating the enemy or looking good in the dc game. jillian: it was their recommendation to keep at least 2500 troops on the ground and you go back and revisit that president biden interview with george stephanopoulos claiming no one said that that he can recall. there is a distinct difference and he said he said. >> that was a stunning take away from the hearing yesterday, they set out but what a lot of us suspect or knew to be true to begin with. the military has been against arbitrary date set withdraws from the beginning of these conflicts and a lot of that is drawn into law. i understand the pushback on that from a political sense but for president biden - he has been saying that for months
2:38 am
getting a lot of cover that was following what generals were recommending and we saw direct contradiction of that, we will see if there's any actual pressing of a falsehood. he spent that much time on issue of this much confidence, there's no doubt he heard loud and clear the military wanted to keep troops there. he made his own call and lied to us about it but this is on president biden. >> the dc game lately, woke issues allegedly distracted leaders from afghanistan according to a former military official, here's the quote they never met once on readiness but they met every week on transgender issues, extremism, racism, sexual assault, sexual harassment etc. spending all the time on these things, they were distracted. we said this would happen.
2:39 am
if we learned our lesson? are we going to pull back from this or is it going to continue on and on until the military can't take it anymore? >> like so many institutions, corporate america, whatever aspects, is infected with leftism, woke - will with critical race theory, they call it diversity, equity and inclusion. as a lower ranking officer i saw the extent to which units, leaders, commanders are obsessed with sexual-harassment training, diversity training, inclusion training, you only have so much time for training and that inevitably takes away from focus on readiness. that term readiness, were fighting which is what the trump pentagon and defense department were focused on. once its tentacles get into an
2:40 am
institution it is really really hard to push it out, you have to be very intentional about that. they wrap it in readiness, this will make us more inclusive and more capable of fighting as a cohesive unit when what it does is divide and distract you and based on the outcomes on the battlefield, heavily divided and distracted brass in washington in these types of woke perspectives and i can tell you having been there that distract the military as opposed to get it more ready to fight and win wars. jillian: you are in national teeth, you will have more coming up on "fox and friends," looking forward to seeing that, thanks for joining us. >> the wrong side of john rich's redneck riviera. i will see everybody on gutfeld tonight. todd: my guess is peace will have a cocktail. coming up, progressive democrats threatened to blow up negotiations on president

there is no other way to describe it in terms of these agents whipping people and running over people on horseback which we have now seen not to be true, you know, at the end of the day, the white house and this administration is not supporting those brave men and women who are waking up every day to keep our communities and keep our borders safe. and, you know, they are putting the burden on them rather than on their policies disincentivize thousands of migrants, many of which have covid, none of which have been vaccinated, from coming across our border. and nothing seems to surprise me anymore with what this administration is willing to do or not willing to do in terms of securing our border. todd: it seems that whether you are talking about the rank and file in afghanistan or the rank and file on the border, our government these days really just likes to seem to stick it onto the brave men and women who
