tv   America Reports With John Roberts Sandra Smith  FOX News  October 14, 2021 10:00am-12:00pm PDT

10:00 am
we are headed in the right direction. we have critical work to do. we can't let up now. my team and i are doing everything we can, but i'm calling on more businesses to step up. i'm calling on more parents to get their children vaccinated when they are eligible, and i'm asking everyone, everyone who hasn't gotten vaccinated to please get vaccinated. that's how we put this pandemic behind us. and accelerate our economic recovery. we can do this. i've said many times, god bless you all and may god protect our troops. thank you very much. >> vice president biden walking away without taking any questions from the press corps assembled as he gives an update for the nation on the progress in terms of getting people vaccinated for covid seeing the booster shots are available and they are free.
10:01 am
also saying, this is of interest to a lot of parents including me, that vaccines for children age 5-11 will soon be available. >> let's bring in dr. nicole safire. thank you for joining us. that is hopeful that the vaccine could be ready for the distribution to the five and 12 -year-olds. i kind of wonder whether that means i can take their masks off in the classroom. he called this critical period. he put the importance on vaccine saying this is not the time to. he said the vaccine requirements should not divide us. about 80 percent of adults are fully vaccinated, that is a huge feet, that is a very successful
10:02 am
vaccination campaign, now are moving on to talk about the younger kids, the 5-11 as you mention. here's the problem i have because we do see some of that division. because you have comments such as that, essentially saying we've got all the doses for the 5-11 -year-olds go out get your children vaccinated as soon as it's approved and their eligible, yet we haven't heard from the scientists. we haven't heard that it is what is necessary in the 5-11 -year-olds like we saw before when it came to the boosters and other things. the white house comes out with some of these comments before there has been a final decision, that puts undue pressure on whatever body it is that is looking at that data. we don't want to buy us when our scientist and experts are looking at the data and putting forth the recommendations just because president biden or the white house has said this is happening. now, as you know i have three kids as well and they're all still wearing masks right now. whatever we can do to get them to not have to wear face masks unnecessarily is what we should
10:03 am
do. does that mean universal vaccines in 5-11 -year-olds? i don't know. to be honest, we haven't seen the data yet and we don't know if the data shows in a fit versus risk when it comes to this young age group. we know that they largely go unharmed from the virus. that does not mean there haven't been deaths and severe illnesses, but we need to be looking closely at that risk in a fit when it comes to the vaccine when you're talking about universal campaigns. the key when you look at the numbers nationwide, it appears this the spike from the delta variant is beginning thankfully to come down. the new york times is even talking today about is this the last covid surge that were going to see. there does seem to be an awful lot of breakthrough infections among people vaccinated raising the question are we going to have to get to the point with covid 19 where we treated like the flu? where we understand that certain number of people will get sick with it, if there vaccinated they likely will get two sick but that we have to end all of
10:04 am
these lockdowns and quarantines and isolation. otherwise we will keep this cycle up for years. >> somehow as americans we've gone every single year with having a flu season. at some point were going to have to accept that we may have flu and covid season. yes, we're coming down from the delton search we had in the summer and just like last summer we came down in the early fall and then we started to see an uptick again as we entered the winter months. the good news is our level of population immunity now is significantly higher than it was a year ago. while we may see an uptick in cases, and i anticipate we will in some areas of the country, we will not see the parallel rise in hospitalizations and deaths that we did last year. we may see a bump in the areas with low vaccination rates, which is why we continue to encourage vaccinations. the only way out of a pandemic is through immunity and to rely on natural immunity is far more deadly than incorporating vaccine -induced immunity. while people are panicking that antibodies may wane and decrease
10:05 am
after being fully vaccinated, the good news is it's not just about those antibody numbers. there are certain populations that will benefit from a booster, this is data from israel and also a recent nih study showing that boosters are helpful in certain populations, but people who have been fully vaccinated, they have memory bmt cells which will make those into a mild cold, which is something that were all just going have to deal with. >> he started out was a very strong statistics saying we are moving in the right direction, the caseloads are coming down, the hospitalization rate is coming down, and that is hopeful. we will cling to that, right? thank you so much. >> good to see you. at the same time economic crises whirling around president biden in the white house he is not taking responsibility for any of it. the president instead saying the private sector needs to step up.
10:06 am
welcome to "america reports" as we reopen the show. sandra, good to be with you. >> agreed to be with you as well. president biden touting his relationship with labor leaders yesterday, but he did not take any questions on what he is doing to prevent is shipping disaster over the holidays and beyond. the white house says the president has been working on the supply chain issues since he took office, but he still can't explain why americans are seeing empty store shelves when they head out to shop. >> this is the ports port in los angeles that will soon have 247 operations doubling the hours that cargo could move. with a shortage of it's not clear how effective this strategy is going to be. >> fox team coverage begins right now. madison always are standing by. >> william joints as now off of the coast of long beach, california admitted all of those container ships that are waiting to come into ports and be unloaded.
10:07 am
what does the water look like from where you are? >> it's actually call him. but it's not supposed to look this way. in the past, these container ships coming in from china or japan would literally cruise right into the port of long beach or los angeles. instead they are parked out here from two or three weeks, so one of the reasons for that is the supply chain backup. one of the causes of that many say is that people are being paid not to work. there are 537,000 job openings in trucking and warehouse according to the labor department. we're about as far from washington as you can be that the failure show up here. this is 1 million containers out on the third there's a lack of space elsewhere so we spoke to one of the officials from the port here and he said these expanded hours should help. >> we're taking the first step here at you're at the board by opening our gates 24 hours a day. we hope that will trigger across
10:08 am
the supply chain for every segment to realign and get those warehouses open. get those trucking companies working at night and create good paying jobs for working-class families. >> so that the crews do not get off the ships. they don't go through customs so they're kind of prisoners out here, and a cottage industry has kind of been propped up if you will ever since to deliver food, alcohol, and clothing out there. yesterday we visited one of those warehouses. to get get the owners can make a choice of how much food do you have for to weeks, and if not, they have to raise the water taxi. then we'll send it out there. >> john, it might be deceiving, but this is about the size of three football fields. while it sitting out here doing nothing, somebody is paying for it, and in the end, that's likely you. >> calm waters out there right
10:09 am
now. but a lot of container ships waiting to get into the ports. >> fantastic reporting from a boat by those container ships. meanwhile, can you imagine a time with three dollars a gallon gasoline is a bargain. for millions of americans, that time has come, as staggering five dollars a gallon is now the reality here in new york city and other places in the country is the latest consumer pricing index data shows that the price of gas is up 43 percent nationwide. we are all paying more at the pump. fox business network is joining us live from a new york city gas station where there is a lot of pain at the pump. hi, madison. >> absolutely. you can see the prices behind me. people who are buying premium gas at this gas station paying well over five dollars rate if you want to fill up with regular, you're creeping closer and closer to that five dollar limit. we are seeing these increases across the country. we spoken to some people at the
10:10 am
pump they've been filling up about a half or a quarter to try to save money, but it's hardware everywhere is seen increases. this b people we spoke to we're really frustrated. >> and philip my truck almost every day. eighty dollars this morning. now $60 here. >> it takes me about $120 to fill up the car. it's ridiculous. >> i put $40 in and i didn't even get a fourth of a tank right obviously it's too high. hopefully it gets better in the future. >> the national average for gas sits just below $3.30. as you mention, according to the consumer price index data released for the past month, there has been a 43 percent increase in the inflation rate for regular gasoline. there are now only five states in the u.s. with gas for under three dollars a gallon that number as dwindling. on monday, there were eight states below that number. to give you some context. before the pandemic really hit
10:11 am
the u.s., the average price for gas in january of 2020 was to dollars 60 cents a gallon. nowhere near this number. >> i think everybody is starting to see. if you hadn't noticed before, you're definitely noticing now. i got notes from friends who said for the first time a custom over $100 to fill up their gas tank. i know a lot of people are seeing that. >> let's bring in new york post columnist maranda, we should point out we've been asking administration officials to come on this program and talk to the american people about the problems and what they plan to do about it. so far, they have declined all of our invitations. the white house insists, maranda, that they have been working on this problem since they took office. yet it has become progressively worse and now markedly worse. is there a role for congress here do you think to investigate exactly what it is that the white house has or has not been doing to address the situation?
10:12 am
>> that's probably a good idea because you're going to want all hands on deck at the moment because this is a crisis for the country. frankly, joe biden's press conference yesterday did not fill anybody with great confidence that the white house is on top of it or we haven't heard from the transportation secretary pete buttigieg. joe biden yesterday talked about a game changer expanding the hours lightly at one port in los angeles, that doesn't address all the other problems you just mentioned, truck drivers i have a book coming out at the end of next month and i'm told that the supply chain problems are really hitting the book industry where we can't even get the trucks to pick up the books and deliver them. it is hitting every aspect of the economy. you do need every brain possible, it is a bipartisan issue and of course the
10:13 am
democrats control the house and the senate, so it really will be up to the end, so you would think that the white house would welcome some constructive advice. >> you mentioned that we haven't heard from many administration officials on this. but we did hear from the white house chief of staff in a way yesterday. he retweeted jason furman who is a harvard economics professor, he tweeted, most of the economic problems we are facing inflation, supply chains, et cetera ri class problems we wouldn't have had them if that an employment rate was still 10 percent we would've had a much worse problem that through this response from tommy pickett who is the rapid response at the rnc struggling to pay for a food, fuel, and housing because of rising prices is not a high-class problem. biden is making everyone worse off, but instead of stopping the damage, their strategy is to try to gaslight americans. your thoughts on him throwing in with this harvard economics
10:14 am
professor? >> it is the glass half-full taken to an absurd extent. as with everything when it comes to the biden administration, all their pitfalls, other mistakes, all their incompetence is glossed over, and turned into i don't know, a great achievement. we've heard joe biden himself tell us that the afghanistan withdrawal was a tremendous success, so i think that the gas lighting, the attempt to manipulate the message, that exists in all administrations, but it seems to be everything that this administration is concentrated on, and they're not being accountable. they don't answer questions from the new york post, they don't answer questions from you will, joe biden stands up, give these statements, not press conferences, and then he turns
10:15 am
his back on the american people and that is a really bad image great if they care about optics, the optics that people are taking from that i've seen it says that this is a portrait of the 46 president and it is the back of joe biden's head. it it is not a good message to be sending. >> it not for a president. we've got about 45 seconds, but i wanted to ask you quickly about another topic, the daily meal running an exclusive report suggesting president biden could get caught up in the fbi investigation of his son because according to e-mails that the daily mail got off the laptop, the two of them shared a bank account and were paying each other's bills. quickly, what do you know about this? to get to know everything about it because it's actually my story that there rebadged as an exclusive. i hate to say that, but anyway, apart from that, it is true. we reported it that joe biden is having his maintenance for his
10:16 am
house, his phone bill, and various other bills were being paid for by hunter biden and we also know there was intermingling of finances between the two including a story we ran a couple of months ago that hunter biden was lit say entertaining a lady of the night and tried to pay for the services with a debit card, which turned out to be connected to an account of potentially of his fathers, joe biden because there was a knock at the door from a former circus service guy saying hunter, that's a problem, it's connected to the dads account. so i think the fbi has the laptop. we know they're investigating hunter. joe biden's involvement financially should be part of that. >> always breaking the news here. maranda, thank you so much. >> thank you come up maranda. president biden's supreme court missions had to release a
10:17 am
preliminary report as democrats push to stack the nation's highest court with more justices. live coverage of that report is soon as it is released, plus this. >> i am the president of my school pta. i'm your neighbor, i'm involved in this community. i'm not an operative, i'm not a plant. >> part of a new way for parents fighting back against the social agenda in public schools as education emerges as a hot button issue in virginia's upcoming governor's race. veteran homeowners. if you haven't refinanced yet, get in on record low rates now. the newday two and a quarter refi is the lowest rate in newday's history. two and a quarter percent. just 2.48 apr. just one call, and you can save thousands every year. there's no money out of pocket and no up front fees. the newday two and a quarter refi. at these rates, you may never need to refinance again.

10:21 am
>> a supreme court commission created by president biden said to be released. it's draft i should say, the draft report is said to be released today according to the
10:22 am
white house. the commission was tasked to study some potential changes to the high court. including expanding the number of justices or imposing term limits. to ideas floated by the far left hoping to tip the scales in their favor. the path for most proposed changes would have to go through congress where the thin majority as slim. president biden will not comment on the findings until he views the final report which is expected out in mid-november. >> we will see if may be little dribs and drabs of that might leak out for people that are concerned about where to go. >> there is a lot of concern about that. we'll see. >> parents in fairfax county virginia speaking of concerns taking a stand to protect their kids in the classroom. one dad attending the school board meeting this speak out about sexually explicit material that was found in the school library. part of a new wave of concern parents across the u.s. getting involved in what is being taught
10:23 am
to their children at school. talk steam coverage now, reaction to this hot button topic, but first chief correspondent emmanuel. should parents be involved in what the kids are being taught at there. >> the central issue in the governor's race, this guy, harry jackson and naval academy graduate retired nature of naval intelligence officer. he was inspired to speak up about looks in that. get the books actually did contain pornographic material as well as material pushing towards children and i felt compelled to act because this material was creating in my view, an environment where kids could be groomed for sexual predators. >> virginia has been ground zero appearance protesting what's happening in their schools. jackson's as a big reason for that is what parents learned during the covid lockdown. >> parents are more aware of what their children are being taught in schools. this pandemic has forced parents
10:24 am
to sit down, beside their children to help them use the kit computers they were issued by the schools. help with asking questions. >> jackson bought this t-shirt after the national school board association wrote to president biden complaining about school protest that they could be the same as a form of domestic terrorism. since he's spoken up he has taken heat with some people suggesting he's a republican operative. jackson insists that's not the case. >> i had a eyed child reach across middle school. i am homeschooling my kindergartner. i am a concerned parent. i'm not a plant, i'm not an activist. is anyone who knows me, i've always been identified as a democrat. >> jackson as president at thomas jefferson high school parent teacher association so he's actively involved trying to improve our schools. >> we should mention for folks at home the thomas jefferson high school in fairfax county, virginia is consistently ranked the number one public high school in the country.
10:25 am
>> year after year. >> absolutely. >> it's a pretty highflying gob job he's got there. >> you know who has a lot to say on this, cohost of fox and friends all worn up for us. so what about parents like harry jackson? what happens when the doj starts targeting them as domestic terrorist? >> and he's wearing the t-shirt so they know where to get them. he has a military background, and he's in a district that went to joe biden by 42 points. so this is something you can't say he's a republican operative. you can see it's a conservative district speaking out in a state going increasingly purple pole. somebody speaking up because they're against their kids learning about. tell me if there's a flipside to that. is there a positive side to that? i don't think so. if you talk about who makes up this coalition it turns out jackson is african-american, it is hardly who they can
10:26 am
characterize as a traditional term supporter. >> virginia dad takes on the school board writing about harry jackson. mister jackson protesting parents are often assumed to be angry white working-class trump supporters. but this is fairfax county, where mister biden as you're point, trump donald trump by 42 points very jackson is african-american and of the coalition members elected with him, to our chinese-american and one is indian-american. >> and we have seen particularly in the governor's race who believes that parents are a stakeholder are a partner, but not the primary stakeholder in the child's education. which is per state law. we are the primary stakeholder in our child's education. it's not acceptable and the pendulum is going in the wrong direction.
10:27 am
>> it's going to be amazing this governor's race and what it means a ripple effect and the fact that president obama has been scrambled to go down there, stacy abrams considered the most high-profile respected democratic politicians. they have been there and they're going to new jersey, why? this is what america cares about it. it's not a high-class upper-class thing when you have to pay twice as much for meat or for gas, or for eggs. >> and this isn't upper-class either, this is an american story, not coming from capital hill or madison avenue. this is a a day-to-day story. to get. >> the wall street journal piece talking about how meant he is so on point right at the end here saying that mister jackson would say it's all about and education. apart from the specific disagreements he has with the school board, the experience, his teaching parents like him something far more disturbing which is that the most important public institution in their children's lives no longer regards itself as accountable to the public. >> you saw what he said. i don't think parents should
10:28 am
play a role in the kids education. are you kidding me? right there he has not recovered from that and i guess his pride or stubbornness or is looking at the wrong voles say he's not walking it back where he was misspoke. he's holding onto that. congratulations. this is within the margin of error against young can in virginia and the ripples will be felt as the democrats continue to struggle on their premier spending plan. when the doors close, and the democrats are down there with their sleeves rolled up saying how do we go forward? how can they possibly rationalized of the american public that spending 3.$5 trillion on money that we don't have an economy that's already overheated and inflation that's overwhelming, how can we possibly rationalize spending this money right now? to me it's a total disconnect between what the american people care about what the washington politicians are doing great. >> so many different reasons people are questioning the administration's priorities. and no one cares more about what's happening in the
10:29 am
classroom and what their kids learned that the parents. great to see you. take it nice to see you. >> a lot of very concerned parents in the nation. stop me if you've heard this before, politicians in dc placing the blame on others. that's what democrats are doing as the economic crisis whirls around president biden. but with democrats controlling all three branches of government, who really is to blame flex our economic panel will break it all down coming up next.
10:30 am
10:31 am
10:32 am
there is no place like home y'all! and these people know that there is no place like wayfair. i never thought i'd buy a pink velvet sofa, but when i saw it, i was like 'ah'. and then i sat on it, and i was like 'ooh'. ooh! stylish and napable. okay now. i can relate to this one. i'm a working mom with three boys. [ yelling ] wayfair is my therapy. amen, kim! yup! i'm hiding from my kids, as we speak.
10:33 am
>> a blame game breaking out in washington, dc over who was at fault for the growing economic crises. the president calling on the private sector to do more to solve the shipping backlog that is leaving store shelves empty as democrats pushed trillions in more spending and are now blaming the media for not
10:34 am
selling biden's plan to the american people. let's bring in our panel. freedom marks economist and former economic advisor to president trump. former chairman of ubs in the economic advisor to former president obama. i want to start with nancy pelosi in her own words. listen. >> do you think you need to do a better job at messaging and going forward, how do you sell this because ultimately. >> i thank you all could do a better job of selling it to be frank with you. i go through the list, the issues that are in there, but it is true, it is hard to break through when you have such a comprehensive package. to get a lot of blame being thrown around there, is it the fault of the media that they can't sell this thing? >> i think that the narrative in washington has not been easy-to-understand. i wouldn't lead with things like reconciliation. i would lead with things like
10:35 am
childcare and eldercare and universal pre-k, things that hit every day families. i think those things are post pandemic environments will resonate, but i think when we start talking about washington lingo, it you lose a lot. >> i appreciate your honesty, but it seems like almost every time you're on here, you are a democrat, but you love and embrace capitalism and it does appear that there is almost always recently been an admission that the administration isn't quite getting this right. steve, what about this? is that the media fault that they can't sell this thing? >> you know things are bad, sandra for the biden administration wherein they blame the media which everyone knows has been in biden's hip pocket. when joe biden and nancy pelosi go around like they have the last couple of weeks and tried to tell american people the three and a half trillion dollar bill is free, it's going to cause nothing, is laughable. the people aren't that stupid.
10:36 am
you asked the question earlier about whether and you said people are questioning biden's priorities. i think that's right. you know what else? i think the bigger problem right now sandra as people are starting to question their competence. can they do anything? they screwed up afghanistan, they screwed up the border, they screwed up energy crisis. what, robert is this administration doing right. i'm going to throw something over to robert. i think they need somebody like robert wells who has some private sector experience who knows how to run things rather than these who work as university professors. >> they are listening to you, right, robert? you just sat down with you or the closer at the salt conference, and he had something interesting to say on twitter. i will put it on the screen for you because he just tweeted this come up with two pans pointing down to jason furman tweet, he is a harvard economist, he was top adviser to president obama
10:37 am
and jason furman said most of the economic problems we're facing inflation, supply chain, et cetera, are high-class problems. we wouldn't have had them if the unemployment rate was still 10 percent we would instead have had a much worse problem. they tweet would indicate that he agrees with jason furman that what we're seeing is just high-class problems? robert, do you agree? >> i probably would say it's a little differently. we have been sounding out about this for a while. i don't agree with the fed chair that this is transitory inflation. i don't think that's the same as what ron claim was sane. he was saying thank god we have millions of people employed again and unemployment isn't where it was great if you believe that inflation is transitory like this administration has been saying, which i don't agree with, then yeah, it makes sense what he said. my view is i think the fed has been late. i think they should reduce its quantitative i've been clear on
10:38 am
that. i think unfortunately a lot of the good things that this administration is doing in fact hitting wages and what you pay for goods and services, it literally unfortunately magnifies a lot of the other goods. >> i don't know what about five dollar gasoline or 25 more to put meat on your dinner table, i don't know what about that is high-class problems. >> this is the problem actually because inflation hits the poor the hardest. there is no question about it. if robert wolf or i have to pay five dollars a gallon and gasoline it's not going to keep because a huge hardship. people making 30, 40, $50,000 a year it causes tremendous problems. they can't pay for the groceries they can't pay for the gasoline. it shrinks their budget. to say that inflation, this is the new line of many of the liberals. we don't have to worry about inflation. if you're upper-class you don't have to worry about it, but i think it it's the lowest income people the most that are really
10:39 am
strain financially now. the polls are showing that. people really worried about whether they can pay their bill. the last four months, sandra, inflation is running ahead of people's wages, so when biden says they've already got a 4 percent pay raise, write, but prices went up 6 percent so they're losing ground. >> robert, i wish i could get into the head of ron claim that thinks that's a good thing to put out there. this is high-class problems. we invited jason furman on the program. we invited ron claim, we invited anybody from the ministration to come on and talk about the crisis, specifically in this moment we've reached out, and we are as the transparency on this administration thinking. i'm told we would have to wrap so i will have you both back. >> coming up, migrants traveling through dangerous areas through a jungle in panama want to try to reach the united states.
10:40 am
locals are completely overwhelmed by the flow of migrants. we went deep into the jungle for the story and we have that coming up. >> first it is the gas price hikes that were dealing with and their supply chain crisis that is now threatening our holidays and now americans may be facing a pumpkin shortage. we will bring you the latest on that news ahead. a veteran who may have served in my time, during the vietnam era, would be eligible today for a va home loan. so many do not know that. there's no expiration date on your eligibility for the va home loan. every veteran, every service member out there if you're thinking about buying a home if you're thinking about a cash out refi whatever you're thinking with a mortgage, you should come to newday usa first.
10:41 am
veteran homeowners. three reasons to do a cash out refi right now. home values are high while rates are low. newday lets you borrow all of your home's value. and you could take out $50,000 dollars or more. your eyes. beautiful on the outside, but if you have diabetes, there can be some not-so-pretty stuff going on inside. it's true, with diabetic retinopathy, excess sugar can damage blood vessels, causing vision loss or even blindness. so remember this: now is the time to get your eyes checked. eye care is important to your long-term diabetes management. see a path forward with actions and treatments that may help your eyes— and protect against vision loss. visit and take control of your sight. hello, for the last few years, i've been a little obsessed and protect against vision loss. with chasing the big idaho potato truck. but it's not like that's my only interest. i also love cooking with heart-healthy, idaho potatoes. always look for the grown in idaho seal.
10:42 am

11:30 am
in some parts of the country. the farmers here tell us they had an okay year, not great, but average, so there are plenty of pumpkins to go around, so we are trying to figure out what the problem is very john ackerman with ackerman family farms will help us. where along the line is that shortage at? >> it's not the farm as you can see we've got a bounty this year. we've been very blessed. it's not at the gaining victory either they've been camping up the piece they are. somewhere along the line it must be a supply chain issue. it's not really is shortage, just more of a delay. >> we've been talking about supply chain issues a lot lately. it seems to me with the problem is as may be getting trucks to the canning factories and all over the country. by the way commit 90 percent of the country's canned pumpkins come from here. to get that's why martin, illinois gets to claim ourselves as the pumpkin capital of the world. >> heading into the holidays people will be making pies and a couple of weeks are going to carve pumpkins. what your message is the guy
11:31 am
that grows them? >> instead of the getting the big hole at the top, at do it at the bottom. you can throw the ball away or keep it, you can light the candle first as part of all, it doesn't cave-in as quick. do you have always carved from the top. we should point out the illinois farm bureau tells us there might be a delay in when you actually see canned pumpkins on store shelves. and once they do hit the grocery store shelves, you might be paying more for them and that is because the cost of the cans have gone up, the cost of labor has gone up as well. we hate to talk about inflation all the time like this, sandra, but we don't want our viewers in this case to be caught off gourd. >> you got me. but there is a difference between the pumpkins from which the canned pumpkin comes from, not like the decorative pumpkin but the pie pumpkin, right? kick it you can see that in the distance they are on that cart right there, those are the ones that would go to the canning factory.
11:32 am
there is a difference, but a lot of them whether they are decorative or from canning are from right here in morton, illinois. >> very special thing right outside of peoria there. thank you, grady for reporting on the pumpkin shortage. have you gotten any pumpkin jet this season? >> we did get some pumpkins out at a the pumpkin patch on monday. picked up a few gourds. figured i left the tip about not cutting the top of the pumpkin to carve it. cut from the bottom because if you're making a jack-o'-lantern, you set it on top of the candle. >> you didn't know that? >> i did, it's a great tip if somebody didn't. >> there you go. every halloween. an honey honey, can you cut the pumpkin? cancel culture, and now hitting halloween in an elementary school and seattle scrapping the pumpkin parade.
11:33 am
they say it's about equity. joining us now is jason. what school are we talking about and what are they doing? >> we're talking about benjamin franklin date elementary. they decided that they would cancel halloween festivities because of concerns over equity and inclusivity and specifically they make the claim that their black male students do not celebrate halloween, that black teens in general don't, and they want to get rid of it. it seems like a silly excuse, i've never heard of that, i had to have sort of in awkward conversations with black friends of mine saying wait, is this a thing and i just missed it. they said no, it seems it's just it's an equity team that made this decision. i was expecting them to come out and say will not everybody can afford the costumes, that's what were doing it, which is a legitimate concern that could be medicated. for them to just come out and say black boys don't celebrate halloween is just absurd.
11:34 am
>> i have seen plenty of african-american boys and girls celebrating halloween. clearly there are concerns when you have a halloween parade or halloween for that matter about cultural appropriation, racist stereotypes with costumes. but if you address that with the students, why not let them have the parade? to get exactly. address with this is about instead of make up something. what i find just absurd denial of this is in place of the halloween parade that they're going to do, they will be offering what they call inclusive fall event like and i'm not making this up, somatic units of study about the fall. i am there going to confiscate the bite-size butter fingers and giving them leaves and say let's do a lesson on why they change color during this time. that's not what kids want and the problem is these kids have friends at other schools who will be celebrating and they're going to be feeling all left out. i guess equity now means making

sure everybody is equally miserable and bored. >> this is seattle and seattle has got a reputation for doing things like this, but just after we ran the promo, promoting your segment coming up somebody tweeted to me a letter from the east lansing public schools in east lansing, michigan, which we have confirmed that they canceled both a celebration the celebration of halloween and valentine's day. for the same reasons. >> absolutely. i think we clearly see this move around the country, and these are schools that for a lot of folks, they don't think this kind of stuff is going to happen there. i escape these big cities with the liberal leaders, but no, those liberal progressive folks take over equity's teams, school boards, and they're making all these decisions in large part like it happened here in seattle, without even consulting with the parents. the parents apparently have no say well at the same time, a lot of these schools lean into holiday celebrations, holidays
11:36 am
that none of us have ever heard of and nobody celebrates at the school, but they do it for the woke most of it all. >> here is what the principal from benjamin franklin told fox news parade several of our students historically opted for an alternate activity in the library while the pumpkin parade took place. this was an isolating situation not consistent with our values of being an inclusive and safe place for all her students especially students of colors and those with a sensitivity to all the noise and excitement of the parade. it's another example where if you can't satisfy everyone, then you take away from everyone. this is a halloween parade were talking about but that's being defined in other areas as well like advanced placement programs in high school which really holds gifted students back. >> absolutely. i think that's a very important point here. if you have just 5 percent of a student population saying they're not comfortable with something or not willing to participate, guess what, that's okay. you don't have to participate. no one is forcing you into the
11:37 am
pumpkin parade no one is forcing you into the ap courses. we have to start looking at education not just about the small group of people who will always be unhappy, usually because parents are telling them to be unhappy, or a presumption that they're going to be unhappy. you have to serve the majority of the students. it doesn't mean you completely dismiss any concerns that come up from a small group of students or parents. you mitigate them, but you are punishing the masses so that you can placate a group of folks that seem to never be excited or happy about anything. >> won father of a seven -year-old asian student said it was in affluent white vanity that is what gives him. we appreciate you coming in. good to see you. >> democrats calling in the big guns and erase analysts say could be a sign of things to come. the heavy hitters heading to virginia. you should democrats keep the vice president on the bench? address my fellow veterans.iko

one of the benefits that our country gives us as veterans is the powerful va home loan benefit. it lets us refinance 100% of our home's value, not just 80% like other loans. that's a big difference. and it can mean a lot more money for you and your family. and this is the best time in history use it because home values are now at record highs while mortgage rates are near record lows. the newday 100 va cash out loan lets you take out $50,000 or more to use as you wish. improve your home, pay down debt, or just put it in the bank for the financial security every veteran deserves. incomparable design makes it beautiful. state of the art technology makes it brilliant. the lexus nx. experience the crossover in its most visionary form. experience amazing at your lexus dealer.

11:43 am
one knows. live on capitol hill with this one. >> john, good afternoon to you. house speaker nancy pelosi raising some eyebrows this week over those very interesting comments. the headlines coming out of the hill right now rightly surround the public battle happening between progressives and moderates over the price tag of the president massive tax and spend plan, but also over what's in it, which social programs make it in and which do not. it's no surprise that a reporter this week as full as he about a recent poll that reveals that more than half of surveyed americans either don't know specifics about this bill or really anything at all. who's fault is it? listen to what pelosi thinks. >> do you think you need to do a better job in messaging and going forward how do you sell this because. >> i thank you all could do a better job selling this to be very frank with you. >> republicans however see the lack of information is a problem
11:44 am
too. >> i noticed that republicans have rightly so focused on the price tag over $5 trillion in spending between the fake infrastructure built in the reconciliation bill and talking about what that would do to inflation. unfortunately, the bill still pulls fairly well among the american people because they don't know exactly what's in the bill. >> all of this comes as democrats like senator bob casey worry about these missed opportunities for them straight he's telling the hill that part of the problem is and i can say this as a democrat, that we have been talked enough about the impact on people's lives adding that this includes really any good pr opportunities the dems could have cashed in on on their home districts from passing the american rescue plan. all those direct deposits we all got last year, no one has been talking about that, but speaker pelosi trying to do her part today. she just did hold an event in california about the president's agenda. >> so we could do a better job of selling build, back, better.

>> i thought that was the democrats job not us. thank you so much great appreciate it. >> democrats calling in the big guns in virginia. former president obama set the campaign for in a race that analysts say could set the stage as we head into the midterm elections next year. joining us is political playbook think you so much for joining us. you tell us what is going on here because we doubled back just a second ago just to check if there are any campaign events planned for kamala harris for mcauliffe between now and election day and we were told that there is nothing solid on the books for harris the last event together was september 14th. so, do they see her as an asset in this race? to give that's a great question and i think he said it himself about his longtime friend joe biden. this was just last week at a
11:46 am
rally, a online. he said to his supporters, listen, we are getting a lot of bad headwind from washington. the president is frankly not popular here. he just laid it out there. it shows that he believes that the president, and i think by extension the vice president is a liability in this race. president biden won virginia by ten points, let's not forget that. but right now, mcauliffe is a buy may be one point in a lot of holes. right now bidens favorability. >> we can pop it up there. go ahead. >> i was just seeing a recent poll showed that biden's approval numbers in virginia are at 45 percent, so it's not that great. this isn't exactly the time to use the president on the road. i think it sets a precedent for the midterm elections and it has democrats wondering is president biden and liability in the midterm elections. let's not forget the last time that republican won the
11:47 am
governor's mansion it was in 2009, right after one year until obama's term a year before the midterms of what happened when you're later? the democrats suffered severe losses in the house. it was a wipeout and they had to head the house back to republicans a lot of democrats are looking at this as a bellwether of what is to come in 2022. there is real panic i can tell you that. >> i'll ask you about that in just a moment, but here he is in his own words admitting that biden is unpopular in that state. we've got to get democrats out to vote he says. we're facing a lot of headwinds from washington as you know, read into that. the president is unpopular today unfortunately here in virginia so we have got to plow through. so panic as a word that you just used. what exactly are you hearing? >> it's just that this is a really troubling race. i think they are worried that if a republican wins this race or even if mcauliffe only wins by a slim majority, it could really
11:48 am
slow down this reconciliation package there are working on. this 3.$5 trillion reconciliation bill great they might lose momentum and people might say we've been pushing this agenda for the past year, and the voters came out and they didn't vote with us, they voted against us or we only won by a little bit. maybe we need to reevaluate our agenda again. as we know the democrats only have a handful of seats in the house. they are looking at this race as a sign of what is to come and they don't want to lose momentum. meanwhile they are trying to pass this infrastructure bill and this reconciliation bill right before the election on november 2nd. and who knows if that'll even happen to that point. >> there is a long time and politics between now and the next election day of the midterm elections. a lot could change and so perhaps you see a change as far as biden and harris our assets as far as what happens. no not a lot of hope of them
