"faulkner focus" is next. >> ♪ ♪ >> harris: middle-class joe biden is facing a high-class problem with fierce reaction after the chief of staff sparked a fire storm. this is the "faulkner focus." the supply chain crisis front and center. the # bare shelves biden the top trend on twitter today. the white house accused of being tone deaf and a tweet from a harvard professor. president biden's chief of staff wants this retweet back.
8:01 am
it says current economic problems like inflation and empty store shelves and supply chain nightmares are high-class problems. this is hardly the first time klain stirred the pot. >> where would he tweet that? is that tone deaf. >> we are at this point because we made progress in the economy. what would be worse in our view if the unemployment rate was at 10% and people were out of work. hundreds of thousands of people were still dying of covid and people were losing their homes. >> harris: jacqui heinrich has more from the north lawn of the white house. >> good morning. it's not the first time the white house klain landed in hot water with his twitter habits.
8:02 am
retweeting an obama era economic advisor. twice 3 hours apart. saying the economic problems are high-class problems. inflation is at a 13 year high. the sharpest price increases the last month include products that average americans buy. beef, pork, chicken, fish, eggs, gasoline, car parts and furniture and clothing. fuhrman defended him on fox news. >> the reason we have inflation is a good reason. the unemployment rate has come down. people are buying more things than ever before. the problem is that people are buying so much stuff and so much is trying to come through the
8:03 am
ports we have record volumes. that has a good and bad side. >> not all of that context was visible. the white house said klain can tweet what he wants. >> this is not the first time of klain's twitter has drawn criticism? >> we'ry addressing the chief of staffs's twitter habits? it's not a to be priority. >> she said he can have points they find interesting. >> harris: house oversight republicans say it's time for joe biden to lean if on the supply chain crisis. in a letter to the president's
8:04 am
port czar, here's what they wrote: a struggling milestone. the average price of gallon of gas hit a 7 year high. mark, the "washington post" column it's the 1970s all over again and joe biden is the new jimmy carter. give me the highlights of where you think we are right now. we see jen psaki is struggling to. the president is not talking
8:05 am
about it. we walked away from reporters again. >> they are struggling. the house republicans are right. these are results of policy choices by the biden administration. we have a record 11 million unfilled jobs. never had more before. why is that? one it's because the government during the pandemic for over a year has been shuffingshuffle shoveling out money. joe biden passed 1.9-trillion dollars in social spending described as covid relief paying people not to work. as a result of that, personal savings rates are an all time high. furman was right. people have lots of money. the amount of money you have after paying taxes and bills is an all time high.
8:06 am
people are not desperate to return to work and have a lot of money to spend. the demand side of the economy is heating up and the supply side can't keep up because they can't find workers to work at the ports and as truckers and in warehouses. that results in shortages and inflation that people are paying across the country. top putting government money into the side. >> harris: tucker carlson laid it out this way and what it means for democrats. >> tucker: the only reasons americans putun with the woke garbage the left puts out is because they can afford to put up it. politics will look very different in a country with permanent shortages. this may be an unpleasant surprise for the democratic party. >> harris: that word permanent.
8:07 am
>> i don't think it's permanent but it will be extended with these policies. if you the biden administration is trying to pass another $3.5-trillion in social spending. that will put more government money into people's pockets. and the vaccine mandates are forcing businesses to fire workers who are willing to work when they can't find workers to replace them and the higher gas prices. that's a result of policy choices. the biden administration declared war on fossil fuel. >> harris: from day 1. >> we have now only about 528 oil rigs which is half of what it was in 2019 under trump. when you tell a business you will put them out of business, they won't drill new wells and wall street won't invest in fossil fuels.
8:08 am
>> harris: that was huge. that had such an effect on everything. biden's disapproval among va-voters is huge. democrats terry mcauliffe with a slight lead over republican glenn youngkin in the race for virginia governor. the numbers within the margin of error. it's a statistical dead heat. closeness of the race, 2 issues for virginia notorious. the -- voters. the majority believe parents should have a say in what is taught to school. something mcauliffe was forced to walk back. two candidates going after each other on education and critical race theory. let's watch. >> he said parents don't have
8:09 am
a right to tell schools what will be taught in school. he think the government should stand between parents and their children. >> i am the father of 5 children. of course parents have a role in education. >> glenn youngkin talks about critical race theory. it's not taught in virginia. it's a racist dog whistle. >> harris: terry mcauliffe the federalist is reporting that new documents reveal that during his tenure as virginia's governor, mcauliffe's administration pushed public schools to teach crt. what happens in this race? early voting has begun. >> 100% look. if terry mcauliffe -- virginia is a blue state and not a purple state. in terry mcauliffe wins that's no big deal. the fact the race is so close frightens people.
8:10 am
in youngkin win it's a cainary in the coal main for democrats. in the mid-terms elections.naryn the coal main for democrats. in the mid-terms elections. school board moms are mad about what is helping. they labeled them domestic terrorists and the biden administration sicked the fbi on them. how incomtent with you? these women are the reason joe biden is in the white house and nancy pelosi is the speaker of the house. today the democrats are doing everything they can to push women back into the gop fold. >> harris: what is your take on all that is going on with joe biden right now? he has a vice-president that can't step in because she has 7
8:11 am
or 8 jobs he gave her and she can't get the border crisis under control. >> this is the second coming of the carter administration on every front. had a can't do their jobs. port crisis. pete buttigieg is the transportation secretary. he is on paternity leave. fatherhood is great. but when you are the transportation secretary and there is a port crisis, you don't leave your job. can you imagine if secretary austin left during the withdrawal? >> harris: we scrolled the jobs of the vice-president. neither one is dedicated to it. have a fabulous weekend. growing outrage now as americans across america are bracing for

>> i said many times god bless you all and may god protect our troops. >> sheath sheath. -- [shouting]. >> harris: if he moved faster it would be a dance move. walk-away joe at it again. president biden refusing to answer questions this time on the supply chain crisis. that was yesterday turning his back on america after delivering prepared remarks on the covid response. he ignored reporters. it's a thing with the president of the united states. he did it last week following remarks on a bleak september jobs report. just 2 days ago did it again. a touch of what we have seen this week. >> thank you all. >> [shouting]. >> i thank you and god bless you all and may god protect our
8:19 am
troops. thank you very much. >> [shouting]. >> harris: reporters and lawmakers are noticing this trend. a congresswoman tweeted this: scripted joe turns his back on america. kevin mccarthy wrote: brian kilmeade covers the fox and friends and host of the brian kilmeade show on fox news radio which he is doing right now. let's get to. walk-away joe? >> i compare it to the previous president. so interested in interacting with the press he told on the person who wrote a book, don't go to the press conferences. i will do it. he would walk out and go next.
8:20 am
you, you, you. 97 percent of them despised his existence. president biden has a series of issues that affect you and i on a daily basis. what are we doing at the ports and the shelves and getting food and items in the major corporate stores costco to wal-mart? his answer was open up one port in california for 24 hours. that will work. problem solved. he doesn't want to answer questions or about afghanistan. he aux washes a. -- walks away. it makes you look weak and not strong. >> harris: it seems like it's part of the plan. okay, good idea. let's just walk away. he gets to the end and closes the book and says nothing. >> [laughing]. >> harris: it seems scripted silence. the buck tops with the
8:21 am
president. you have to wonder about the leadership of this administration. serious problems facing the top people. look what we created on our big wall and it almost wasn't big enough. how much are they helping joe biden? there are a lot of self-inflicted wounds among these people. >> the big picture when the general managers came out and said i suggested to the president to leave 2000 troops. suggested to the president to leave 2000 troops. on afghanistan and they did not listen to me. on that wall mayorkas is going with the president's vision terribly. and tom holman said he knows how to do the job. he was a deputy and choosing not to do. the u.s. secretary of transportation. we took 3 months off. everybody understands paternity leave but if your national
8:22 am
interest matters, i can't picture you taking the job if you know in a few months you will take 3 months off! this is a window of opportunity to serve your country. you can't leave for 3 months. bad decision. >> harris: i thought about this. people do this all the time. parents men and women taking time off when new little ones come along. they have somebody to do step in. he has a deputy transportation secretary. this is the better than that biden put in charge as his port czar. never knew about him because if he were going to step in for the transportation secretary during a crisis of supply chain and other things, all goods didn't get there 20 minutes ago. that took time off.
8:23 am
why do we see john instead of pete buttigieg if he was staying on his leave? he can do it. absolutely. people do it. babies are always a blessing in our lives. your thoughts. >> it john or joe? >> harris: you may be right. no, it's john. >> you got it right. the president called him joe? >> if anybody is not doing a good job it's the guy in charge of getting the ships in and out port. they have been out there longer than the crown princess cruise. we had william there. they are not moving. these are goods we paid for. they are explaining it's a good thing. an upper class problem we have to wait for goods with empty shelves and inflation is rising. please don't explain to me how
8:24 am
paying 40% more for gas is a good problem. you have the labor secretary. why is everyone quitting. why do we have a work force but have less people working in our country? we have somebody and a labor secretary that says give renter relief and student loan forgiveness and you wonder why nobody jumps back into the workplace. you have a $3.5-trillion package. someone forgot to tell the president he can't get his own party to vote for. whenever you go he failed. the picture is not only is he responsible. this is what joe biden wanted. it turns out his vision is impossible to implement. >> harris: wow! i am thinking about what you just said with pete buttigieg the secretary of transportation and you have a chief of staff klain retweeting that's a high-class problem.
8:25 am
what about the diabetics who can't find cotton for the alcohol on their fingers. i am thinking basics. that's who we are as americans. we have basic things that bind us together. it's unbelievable that anybody thinks you are rich if you can't go to the store and get what you need to eat. >> two over arching statements on a real leader. the reason we are importing so much we don't make anything anymore. this is a wake up call. you explain that to the american people and show a shot of ships in the press conference and you say the reason we do is because we don't make anything because it's cheaper to make it. that has to change. number 2, we have get healthier as a country. the reason this virus feasts on americans is because we are not if shape. those are the people that have the hardest time shaking off the

this into a few words. come on, do we have their attention yet? good to see you. tell your listeners hello. >> and i say hi. >> harris: democrats pushing their massive spending bill and voters are noticing new polling showing most people believe the federal government is doing too mu. that's a reversal from this time last year. >> they were trying to push this policy through by a mandate by a detector. you can't layoff cops because you will never replace them. >> harris: key mandates could cut their force in half. 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.

8:35 am
they say there have been days over the weekend where there are drive-by shootings in downtown chicago. when i grew up here the violence was on the south side. it expanded. it doesn't matter what color you are. bullets don't care about race. the mayor decides she wants to fore a mandate on police officers who would be supporting the safety of the city which needs it the most. we need officers, not less. she is playing god. the situation has terrible effects. with my family i am very concerned we will see more bloodshed than ever in this city. >> harris: and your thoughts? >> i think the coronavirus doesn't discriminate against people regardless of race or income. people with pre-existing are at the highest risks. this is about saving lives. in 2020, 66% of all law enforcement deaths were from
8:36 am
covid. that's a fact. this is about saving lives and protecting communities. >> harris: i will come back to you on that. you lived there? >> yeah. 69% of people in illinois have gotten at least one dose. i understand the people who have pre-existing conditions should do it but this should not be forced. democrats are supposed to be the party of following the science. but they don't follow the science. they follow the politics and propaganda. even with the vaccination you can still transmit covid-19. we understand that. individuals who had covid in the past, we know they had natural immunity and have more immunity than those who have been vaccinated. following the science should be
8:37 am
in the conversation. the mayor of chicago and president of the united states are not following the science. they are putting chicago lives in great danger. it's a big safety issue as we have here knowing that more children in chicago have died from shootings than covid across the country. >> harris: children under age 12 can't get the vaccine. desiree, quickly. we have florida governor ron desantis. can regards to deaths of any police officers. a heck of 2 years for officers. they need support on every avenue. it the door open for the mayor of chicago to talk to the cops? that's necessary right now. florida governor ron desantis is defending first responders. yesterday he said this. >> let's not have biden come in and take away the jobs of people
8:38 am
who have been working hard throughout this entire pandemic. i am offended that a police officer could lose job fair. they could not work from home. they could not zoom in. >> harris: that's a good point. >> that's right. they don't get to zoom in. that's why it's important that we protect their health. america mandated vaccinations for hundreds of years. we have seen all kinds of out breaking news in florida. i won't uplift what he is saying. i will uplift the vision of scientists that say vaccines work and mandates reenforce that. the chicago mayor saying that everyone needs a vaccination came with an exemption, if you don't get it, get tested.
8:39 am
stay healthy and protect the children. >> that's not what they are saying. they are saying we will fire you, period. plain and simple. you are putting our lives in danger. mayor lightfoot, that's what you are doing. i have family who have been shot at and beat up. this is a dangerous city. the fact this mayor is suggesting this. the city council needs to jump in. this is serious. the first priority should be the safety of ever citizen. you don't have to usurp the police officers's rights to make a decision terror themselves. they are smart people. they should be allowed to. >> harris: in case it comes upen. >>. >> [overlapping talking]. >> harris: the military the boss is the commander-in-chief in the
8:40 am
white house. it can feel political. his decision will come down. that's where that goes. it goes to the pentagon from the commander-in-chief. the police officers they are represented by unions. if can comes up again, desiree, don't muddle them together. they are 2 different things. this has been a great discussion. thank you. this weekend they expect a violent one with fewer cops. democrats trying to sell their multi--trillion dollars spending plan to the american people. people in a dramatic shift are not buying it. cancel culture. now has this person in his sights for something he joked about 48 years ago. who is going after dirty harry and how that is working out. >> go ahead, make my day.
