4:00 pm
every week. jeff? >> buy those christmas ps right now, a not glum white house warrants. going back to what we were talking about earlier. >> bret: thanks, everybody. that's it for this "special report." fair, balanced and still unafraid. "fox news primetime" with jesse watters just down the hall. >> jesse: welcome to new york at congrats on the book. good evening and welcome to "fox news primetime," i am jesse watters. only ten months into joe biden's presidency but we may already be witnessing the death of the biden agenda. boy, that was quick. americans are already turning on the embattled president as polls show his approval rating crumbling to 38% down from 50% in february. this turn might even be historically bad as biden's approval rating is now 10% lower in barack obama's was at the same time in his presidency.
4:01 pm
so why are people fleeing the sinking ship that is the biden white house? well, it all started when the white house pushed its vaccine mandate in an effort to turn the page on its failed afghanistan surrender. it didn't take long for that one to backfire. just ask the thousands of passengers on southwest airlines left stranded due to staffing problems. funny how these problems suddenly popped up after they filed a lawsuit against mandates. but it's not just angry airline passengers fleeing the pain. what happens when the people who keep us safe are forced to choose between their job and their freedom? look at seattle. or the city is prepared to fire 40% of their police force for refusing to get vexed. looks like seattle's summer of love might soon turn into a very dark winter. or how about in l.a. where only 64% of the l.a. fire department were fully vaccinated, and about 1200 members hadn't had a single
4:02 pm
shot. is l.a. really about to lay off 35% of their firefighters? but this problem is quickly spreading across the country it is about to affect you. hundreds of cargo ships are stuck just off america's shores, waiting to be unloaded and moved around the country. but staffing shortages have left ships full and shelves empty. we even have a backlog of toilet paper. wallets are allowed to feel aboutfeel a lot lighter thanks n economy but don't worry, the white house says it's on top of this. >> the task force to address short-term supply chain bottlenecks. the supply chain task force has been working around the clock for months and months now to address a range of different issues we see. >> jesse: oh, they created a task force. they didn't do anything. it's almost as if biden is going out of his way to hurt the economy. his recovery plan is a failure,
4:03 pm
evidenced by last month's job report after they added only 200,000 jobs after the economists predicted half a million. say it ain't so, joe beer they can't add jobs but it looks like they can't even keep the ones they have, either. more than 4 million people quitting their jobs in august. nearly 3% of the workforce. of course, joe and kamala are nowhere to be found as our economy spirals down the drain. biden is clueless about what's happening evidenced by this very real tweet from yesterday when he says this, i've never been more optimistic about this country and i will start building this economy to beat the competition and deliver for working families. no, this isn't a parody. biden really is that far out of the loop. what about the vp? maybe she's on top of the faltering economy. no, instead it is all the lights camera, kamala she is too busy
4:04 pm
playing youtube star with child actors rather than doing, well, anything. vice president giggles and clueless joe have been steering a rudderless ship and now it's sinking. between spikes in unemployment, rampant inflation and supply chain meltdowns, looks like they're bringing us all down with them. joining us now, louisiana senator john kennedy. you've seen a lot, senator, in your day. have you ever seen in administration create problems and then refuse to fix them? >> not in this short a period of time, jesse. i think it's fair to say that president biden and his merry band of wokeristas have broken a lot of plates in the first few months. that is why his poll numbers are going down like the fat guy on a
4:05 pm
seesaw. everything from afghanistan to inflation, to the border crisis to his handling of covid, one of my constituents this week was asked to comment on the president's covid policy and his response was, and i quote "i am not about to take health care advice from some guy who would leave my ass in afghanistan. that is a pretty practical view of the world. i think it's worth asking why, though, why this is happening to the president. and to the american people. one possibility of course, that president biden's people are just squid brains. another possibility, which i think is realistic, is that they don't understand the american people. large portions of them. i will give you an example.
4:06 pm
>> jesse: okay. >> the president has decided to sick the fbi on parents. most americans understand that one of the reasons we have crime problems in america is because of the lack of parental involvement in kids' lives. thousands of kids are more likely to grow up and go to prison and get married or own a home, so we want to encourage parental involvement. parents have been taking an interest in their kids' education, going to school board meetings. what is president biden's response? let's sic the fbi on them. i'm not defending anybody that acts outrageously at a school board meeting, but that's only a small minority of cases. i mean, the president is basically saying to the american people, you don't have a say in your kids' lives and what they
4:07 pm
learn. and common sense would be illegal in washington, but it's not illegal in most of america. and they look at the president and they go, what planet did you just parachuted in from, to sic the fbi on parents who are going to a school board meeting who want to be involved in their kids' lives? in that is just one example. i don't think they get it, i don't think they understand a lot of the american people. >> jesse: they don't get it. they are siccing, as you said, agents on parents. they are going after border control agents who are doing their best from preventing border crossers from entering into this country illegally. it's the police too. he's created a war on the unvaccinated, if you want a religious exemption or medical exemption, he has made you an enemy. and even, like you said, stranding americans behind,
4:08 pm
stranding allies behind in afghanistan. his entire focus is political. it's about revenge politics and waging political warfare on people who just oppose his policies. policies that aren't working, and he is really just trying to silence any opposition to his unpopular policies, instead of what he said he would do is unite the country because he was supposed to be a moderate. he's not. and it looks like the far left has their hopes in him and all hell is breaking loose. i will give you the last word, senator. >> i think it's that and more. i think the president and his people just don't trust the american people to make their own decisions. president biden and his woke friends think they are smarter and more virtuous than the american people, that the american people can't manage their lives without these edicts from washington and that is why i say they have really misread the american people, most of
4:09 pm
whom get up every day, go to work, obey the law, try to do the right thing by their kids, and they know how to run their lives without washington, d.c. >> jesse: like you said, going down faster than a fat guy on a seesaw. senator kennedy has a way with words. thanks for coming on "prime time," appreciate it. our next guest is forced to choose between his medical status and his job. charles leblanc is said to be fired for refusing the vax mandate come along with his attorney. what is your opposition to the mandate? >> my opposition to the mandate, it is basically the fact that i cannot take the vaccine, and this was at the recommendation of my doctor, due to my health issues, i have had anaphylactic shock in the past. i have also had cancerous tumors removed from my, and these two
4:10 pm
items really propel me into an area where to causes consternation on behalf of my doctor and myself and because of those reasons, i cannot take the vaccine. i'm not opposed to the mandate, per se, but there is a percentage of people in this country that cannot take a vaccine, and for whatever reason, we are now being discriminated against at the highest level. >> jesse: excuse me, i think i called you matt leblanc. i think i had joey on my mind from "friends." excuse me, charles. understanding the medical exemption, i'm sure your doctor has written a note that is reasonable and medically justified. what exactly are these lawyers at the fire department saying you? >> basically, it's not the fire department for me. i actually work for the fire
4:11 pm
patrol for the fire marshal in the state reports to the chief patrol and these are not lawyers who are talking to me, they are hr professionals -- >> jesse: even better. >> basically what i was told was the agency accepts exemption request, however, they cannot accommodate me. the way it was explained to me is because i am in a forward facing position, i no longer meet the requirements of my job description, which is being vaccinated. >> jesse: all right, obviously unconstitutional, this has been settled before. this is not the first time we have had a crisis like this before. what argument are you going to be making to these people because this is obviously going to go to court and the decision is going to be looked at by other courtses across the country. what are you going to say? >> this is what constitution violation bingo. in the first case the governor
4:12 pm
does not have the legal authority to do this, on the legislature does and he can do it easily. we have good vaccine laws on the books. i have even drafted legislation, sent it to our representatives by simply changing a couple words. after our separation of powers issue we have nine months pregnant women who have already been approved for fmla, that has been revoked, they are being terminated. the state's own premandate data shows that hispanic people and african-americans are vaccinated at a lower rate by having a mandate that is inflexible, we are necessary -- that is the governor -- sincerely driving people of color out of service. we have whistle-blower documents that show a concerted effort to remove religious people from the state patrol. even if you don't care about separation of powers and civil liberties, and obviously, people should come of the net effectiveness thing is simply

going to be less public safety. my clients are not going to disappear on the deadline of the 19th. we are just going to have nurses working at denny's instead of in the hospital. we are not in position to be losing nurses and firefighters. >> jesse: yeah, and if you are making a 911 call, who cares if the person is vaxxed or not that comes and potentially saves your life. the small chance of the police officer giving you covid while he pulls you away from a car jack or, balance that against a car checker pulling you out and taking you god knows where. if got to run because i'm up against a break, gentlemen. charles and nate, thank you for coming on and we will follow that litigation as it unfolds. nancy pelosi blaming the press for making her look bad. and kamala harris is paying child actors to make her look good. we will tell you all about it, next. ♪ ♪ headed to the farmers market...

eight: 45, he had a virtual conference and then a briefing t 10:15. what about the spending spree? nancy wants the media to sell. taxpayer dollars paying for the college education of millionaire families to ivy league colleges, dollars to nancy pelosi's favorite part, illegal aliens, more intrusive irs scanning through your financial transactions? this bill is crap and that is why the american people aren't buying it. we know when president trump passed the massive tax cut to the american people he was basically living on the hill and biden is proving what we have all seen. he is incapable of leading. senator kyrsten sinema won't even return his calls. he is being ghosted by senator. democrats are in charge and can't even seem to pass a
4:22 pm
kidney stone. they will not pass these massive spending bills but mark my words, if these bills pass, it is because weak republicans caved to the democrats. >> jesse: it is a good point all around and i got my hands on some details. they are giving union bosses money, they are giving the legals money, they're making sure we get culturally appropriate foods for school lunches. they are taxing natural gas, they are giving amnesty, it's like millions of dollars to fix racist roads and bridges to topple statues. that is why she needs help selling it, because it can't sell itself. thank you very much. be safe out there. if you haven't figured out by an outcome of the biden administration total fraud. from joseph a quite house at two kamala positive is phony but. turns out the kids in the video didn't really care, they were child actors who audition for their roles. so the marveling at the moon and the fawning over the craters,

child actors to make the vp look relatable? >> oh, and doesn't she look so relatable, jesse? you can feel the sincerity in everything she said in the nasa video. this is the funniest administration in history. the biden-harris administration and don't forget you've got to add harris in there because she does so much it warrants her name being added to the administration. he said it, the white house, the fake sets joe biden is using, obviously, this ridiculous video. how about the ice cream photo op that joe biden does all the time? and still continues to do. i think they went to a doughnut shop yesterday. when do you see president trump doing photos at doughnut shops and ice cream shots? he never did them because he was actually working for the american people but if it wasn't bad enough, this video was so embarrassing, they had to pay the kids to show up to be in this video and they couldn't go out of their way, jesse, to hire
4:25 pm
an american company, god forbid they do that, they had to go ahead and hire a canadian company to command and shoot the video. i guess our taxpayer dollars, not only are they being spent on the billions of dollars we gave in military equipment to the terrorists in afghanistan, it is now also being given to canadian companies and child actors to make her look so relatable and they did a great job doing that. >> jesse: and the canadian company we paid for to make her look good is called sinking ships. >> productions, that is the best part about this. here you have the vp, more child actors in this thing than the te brady bunch and sinking ships. it is indicative of how this administration has gone, supply chain crises, afghanistan, and our terrorists' disneyland. in underscore the simple fact, that president bosma's handlers

4:36 pm
he is a school superintendent, he lied and said nothing happened. take it from there. >> this story is one of the most outrageous things i have ever heard happening with a school district like this. scott smith and his family have been put through a living hell by the school board. they've been put through a living hell by the surrogates, by antifa because not only was this man, this freshman girl, was she raped in the bathroom, they were going to handle it internally but the family ended up pressing charges. they surreptitiously transfer this mail, identified as a male -- identified as gender fluid, they surreptitiously transferred him to a different school where he also sexually assaulted another girl. that also took place because the school board would rather sacrifice girls and their innocence at the altar of

political correctness and they would rather accommodate progressive male desires dan actually protect the innocence of our women. i'm going to tell you what, if parents don't take to the streets with porches wow torches, then we certainly will. you want to know who the real domestic terrorists are? it's these school boards and people like merrick garland terrorizing parents and saying they are domestic terrorists because they are trying to protect their kids who have been raped. and just t add you mentioned this school board superintendent who said he lied about this, he had said that there were zero attacks in the school bathrooms that had taken place and this father was barred from going to the school board meeting where they were holding a vote on the transgender bathroom policy and he was arrested. it gets crazier, people should look into the lab and officer thatwas looking to docks who were part of the school board. it was a mess and lou did a

some of them are child abusers. there has been some real rough stuff, people have been giving second chances in the nfl because they had talent. d any sort of hypocrisy there? >> listen, i think there should be accountability and transparency across the board but it's worth pointing out that not only were these emails from 2011 but there were some from 2018. if you are a coach of the team, you're supposed to be the leader, the one that sets the bar, both in your locker room as well as on the field, how do you have the ability and authority to do that if you're sending emails that are racist, homophobic, emails that are downright degrading to people who work for you? this is not only problematic but it's a larger problem with the leak. >> jesse: you take private emails from many, many years ago there is obviously going to be trouble but to his point, if he comes out and says i've changed or i apologize, do you think he can still lead an nfl team? you think these guys are going to be offended by some of these
4:50 pm
comments are they going to be like, let's go win on sunday? >> i think some will be offended and ultimately he probably could have held this locker room and had the raiders off to a great start this year. that is beside the point of how well he coach is or how well they were doing. >> jesse: quickly, we've got to run. >> richard said we need accountability. i'm not looking for accountability, i'm looking for power in that is why deshawn watson although he is suspended is still in the nfl and john gruden is not. we're not looking for accountability. >> jesse: now, we are looking for scapegoats. he crossed the commissioner, you're toast. up next on the clock. migraine medicine. it's ubrelvy. for anytime, anywhere migraine strikes, without worrying if it's too late, or where i am. one dose can quickly stop my migraine in its tracks within two hours. unlike older medicines, ubrelvy is a pill that directly blocks cgrp protein, believed to be a cause of migraine. do not take with strong cyp3a4 inhibitors.

as someone who resembles someone else... i appreciate that liberty mutual knows everyone's unique. that's why they customize your car insurance, so you only pay for what you need. oh, yeah. that's the spot. only pay for what you need. ♪ liberty, liberty, liberty, liberty ♪ ♪ ♪ >> jesse: just a few minutes left in the show, so it is time to put raymond arroyo on the clock four stories, 60 seconds each, let the emojis be our guide. pop star demi lovato has found a new thing to complain about, the term alien because how offensive that term is to
4:56 pm
extraterrestrials. she says the ets should be called vts instead, raymond. >> jesse, i have not heard crazy space talk like this since kamala harris last week. i don't know what demi lovato is after here. first of all, we don't know what to call some of the people who live in our neighborhood. let's stick with that before he moved to the aliens. the other thing, why is she talking about aliens? what expertise does demi lovato have? turns out she is hosting a new show on peacock called "unidentified," and in "unidentified," i thought it was a biopic about her, turns out it is about summoning alien life-forms, at one point i kid you not she serenades an empty room trying to bring in extraterrestrial to her. i hope she keeps that up because the audiences will be running the other way. >> jesse: if the ets to catcher her, try not to
4:57 pm
offend them, they are there to l you, demi. next up, sleepy joe's border crisis out of control and he doesn't know what to do. the answer has been right in front of you the whole time. just put up the unused border wall that trump left you because, as we know, walls work. i think one of our guys on the border shot this from a drone, it is just sitting there, raymond! >> jesse, i have seen this image in person. i have flown the helicopters -- in the helicopters, i didn't fly them, but in the helicopters of the border patrol, the texas public safety poster, you see, this goes on for miles, this sort of scene, and the problem is, biden said "i'm not trump, we are stopping the wall," not only do we have $100 million left of unused materials, we are paying contractors $5 million a day to not build the wall, meanwhile, this crisis is blowing up all along the border. all the border wall it does, jesse, is move, create
4:58 pm
choke points, so border patrols had a chance. right now, they outnumbered. >> jesse: the perfect symbol of a biden presidency, just the solution staring him in the face but he will not act. next up, if you see hogs roaming around, which i'm sure many of you might, don't expect it to be your friend because chances are you are going to end up on the floor like this guy. you hear that? [laughs] i'm nervous. how about you? >> at the end of it he says "help!" i don't know what he thought he was getting here, pumba, if he thought the thing was going to sing "hakuna matata," but they are not for petting, jesse. this is nothing to play with, it is not a poodle or a cat, so don't touch it. >> jesse: when the tail is wagging like that, it is not there for a little treat, it is there, you are the treat, that
4:59 pm
is what it is therefore. >> coming in for the kill. >> jesse: just don't call it a warthog, it might offend you. maybe it prefers another name. >> not alien, that is for sure. >> jesse: congresswoman maxine waters, no relation, broke the news today that her twitter account was hacked and erased. she said she knows who did it and is ready to go after them but she made the announcement on twitter, from her own account, that was not erased at all. >> this does not make any sense. this is like picking up the cell phone and going "officer, i am missing my cell phone, it has been stolen." what are you calling from? the cell phone! twitter says both her personal and professional accounts have not been compromised. so i thought, what would an aging boomer scrolling through twitter accounts imagine might be her account? the ominous line, "i know who did this and willing to take care of them," i thought she surely came across watters' world and thought "i am
5:00 pm
maxine waters, this is my world, when she attempted to tweet "nothing happened. jesse, go home, put emma and junior in the car and run for your life. >> jesse: she did say to get up into people's faces. thanks, ray meant. thanks for watching "fox news primetime." we will be back tomorrow at 7:00. check out my book, still available. tucker is next. ♪ ♪ >> tucker: good evening, and welcome to "tucker carlson tonight." happy tuesday. there is probably no institution in american life that has more effect on how you live but that we talk about less than the federal reserve. people don't care to talk about the federal reserve because it seems very complex and a lot of what it does is in fact complex unless you have a grounding in monetary policy, it is hard to know exactly what is going on. but the basics are not that complicated, actually
