3:04 am
this incident and to understand how to prevent such things from happening again. so far, steve, ainsley and brian. no charges have been filed. steve: that's right. ainsley: devastating for him and his family. i follow his wife on instagram. thank you so much, carley. carley: you are welcome. ainsley: she posts all these beautiful pictures of their family. they have two new children and you see this hang. the "new york post" has a picture of him. this is a picture he posted just a few hours before there it is right there. see the fake blood on his shirt and coat. he was just tweeting out about back in the office in person. and he said exhausting. a few hours later we know what happened. to see this old western scene supposed to be back in the day and now we have yellow police tape. steve: yeah, it's scary. detectives are investigating what exactly came flying out of the gun. tmz is reporting it was either shrapnel or a bullet struck both the director of photography and the director.
3:05 am
a criminal investigation apparently is underway. he apparently he alec baldwin was taken and questioned by the police. he was released and not charged. trying to figure out what exactly happened it does remind a lot of people of back in 1993, bruce lee's son brandon was making the movie the crow. and they were using a prop gun and it was the death scene in the movie and he was shot in the back and it was supposed to be just a blank but it turns out there was an actual bullet inside the chamber. ainsley: the family doesn't want guns used at all. steve: that's right. brian: one account says lee was killed when a dummy round got lodged in the barrel of a gun. i'm just wondering i know very little about props. but if you have a dummy round can you get killed by that? is there something to create that sound that news noise, that look that if you point and pull the trigger that you get killed by a blank? ainsley: the cinematographer is
3:06 am
from the ukraine. she was air lifted and died at the hospital. our hearts and prayers go out to her family and the baldwin family. he was visibly distraught out of the police department and on the set. steve: yeah. and the director is, while injured, is expected to survive. terrible news. throughout the day we will have more on fox. in the meantime, the attorney general was in the hot seat yesterday. this comes at the same time that it was revealed emails from the national school board association revealed that apparently they had been in contact with the white house for a couple of weeks before they sent the letter that asked the president, essentially, they suggested parents who were objecting to masks or crt engaged in a form domestic terrorism and suggested using the patriot act to keep the parents from causing problems, serious problems. then as it turns out. they sent that letter. we have been talking about it
3:07 am
for the last couple of weeks there were just two people at the national school board association who apparently knew about it and the rest of the board is like what are you doing? we would not have used that kind of language calling in law enforcement and now essentially backfired on them. ainsley: the g.o.p. really questioned him yesterday because he said is the fbi necessary? patriot act calling parents terrorists? because in that original letter that was sent to the president by the school board association, they did say we are asking for resources and the expertise of the department of justice, the fbi, homeland security, secret service, national threat assessment center and then merrick garland, he directed the fbi and the u.s. attorney's office to hold meetings with federal, state and local law enforcement to discuss this disturbing trend they called it. steve: that's disturbing. ainsley: exactly how parents are treating school board members and staff and school administrators. brian: choreographed with the freedom of information act. see how it took place and
3:08 am
emerged. i'm just torn. i don't know if the attorney general is detached or is he just kept in the dark? is that just his presentation? because he seemed relatively clueless and we know his intellect is high. it seems like at his job, either they keep treating him like the king of england where he doesn't have to make any decisions or he is just playing keeping his cards close to the vest. listen to him yesterday try to answer jim jordan's questions inaccurately by the way? >> march 25th joe biden criticizes the georgia election law the justice department. first joe biden criticizes the law 8 days later the justice department challenges it 8 days later asked the fbi to local school board issues. five days later the department of justice just just that mr. attorney general, it was just a coincidence or any connection mr. attorney general with the school board letter? >> obviously the letter which was public and asked for
3:09 am
assistance from the justice department, was brought to our attention and it's a relevant factor. >> who gave you the letter? >> i'm sorry? >> who gave you the letter. >> i read about the letter in the news. i certainly would believe that the white house, um, communicated concerns about the letter to the justice department. steve: so there essaying nobody from the white house talked to me but the white house probably did communicate with the department of justice which he said was appropriate. nonetheless, it raises questions whether the white house ordered the attorney general to have the fbi investigate. brian: what do you think? is he being coy? oh the department of justice did this and is he just overseeing this? if something like this matters so much to get the fbi involved in school boards and i think it's important. if the white house calls the justice department i think this is truly important. does he just not know? is he confused about this? did anyone brief him about his testimony? steve: pretty big. brian: this is pretty important. the white house contacts you about getting involved in school boards, which is obviously going to be a public controversy.
3:10 am
even if you are a supporter of it, and are you really out of it? and did you not get briefed before this briefing today? ainsley: he did ask the fbi to sit down with local officials and discuss the disturbing trend. but then he sent out his memo on october 4th, and he says in that memo if you read at this never use the word patriot act and i never called parents terrorists. steve: that's right. that's the background to what we're about to talk about regarding a new fox news poll. what is extraordinary -- so we asked people, are you concerned about what they teach in the schools? and as it turns out, 63% of democrats are extremely or very concerned about what schools teach. republicans about 20 points higher. you know, that's only of registered voters. apparently not all parents. because you would think that every parents would be very concerned or at least somewhat concerned about what they are teaching in american schools.
3:11 am
of course, that is the back drop to the protest and that is what got the national school board association writing the letter after the email back and forth talking to the white house. and that's how we got to here. brian: do you know what i think is missing? would you tell me when local law enforcement was overwhelmed by these parents where they need the fbi in for additional help? if the sheriff's office is going yeah, i'm going to these school board meetings, i don't have the manpower or woman power. ainsley: only video parents at the podium telling the school board they don't like what happened or the one man arrested because what happened to his daughter. brian: $55,000 a year working two jobs while two kids go to school and come back with disturbing curriculum. that's what the fbi is focusing on ounce. ainsley: they let rioting r.errings break into stores. brian: up to $900. steve: use the patriot act. essentially using america's

surveillance apparatus to figure out how these parents are organizing because they are showing up and making us look bad. so that's the chilling part right there. recommendation the fbi did an investigation. comes out the kids are overextended and are upset about wearing masks. ainsley: need the fbi. brian: break down the american family. ainsley: schools pushing political plans. brian: ohing the fbi find out about is it kind of odd that all these english as a second language classes have doubled in size since joe biden has taken over and 1.7 million kids have and adults have influx through our southern border? it's unbelievable what the focus is on. and how i thought merrick garland did not dom play yesterday. america dodged a bullet when he did not come a supreme court justice. he had no answer with it. did you ever consult with ethics official about the fact that your son-in-law and possibly

3:19 am
dental records to make that identification. now, police had searched this area weeks ago. cadaver dogs though had a tough time doing their job that's because police say much of this area was covered with several feet of water. >> i got to see firsthand the treacherous conditions that they were working on. we are talking about water levels up above almost a chest area. rattlesnakes, moccasins, alligators. >> brian, you mentioned the possible charge that these items, these personal items from brian laundrie could have been planted by the parents. keep in mind the parents did accompany investigators on that search on wednesday. and it was laundrie's father who found the first item. a bag that longed to his son. but an attorney for the parents say that charge is simply nonsense. the bigger questions still remain how did laundrie die in that marsh land and could the notebook found alongside him
3:20 am
could that have any clues to the murder of gabby petino. keep in mind laundrie is still the only person of interest in that murder. back to you guys. steve: all right. and, steve, one other thing, daily mail has a story about essentially it says that the laundries, a former fbi agent thinks that his parents may have avoided obstruction of justice charges by cooperating at the end, you know, the fbi might have come in and said hey, if you don't tell us everything you know, we could come after you. and this agent who spoke to the daily mail felt that apparently that's probably why they cooperated on the day they found the stuff. >> i think it certainly raises suspicions five week manhunt and single day the parents do go out there. they find the items and find the human remains. steve: yeah. some people say it's kind of fishy. steve harrigan down in florida. thank you, steven. brian: not over.
3:21 am
ainsley: i heard where they found the body is close to the entrance of the park. steve: on the trail and it's within a mile or two of the entrance. that's kind of a broad space. nonetheless, you know, the dad goes out, starts wandering, goes about 20 feet off the trail and says hey, look what i found. ainsley: wondering why they didn't go out with the fbi in the very begin going they really believed that's the area where he liked to camp. brian: right. steve: good question. brian: 21 minutes after the hour. hard to imagine something more important to the president of the united states what is happening national security southern border. set all time record that they allow the number is much higher 1.5 million illegals to come across our border under joe biden's reign as president of the united states. still the vice president given the charge has shown up once in a cameo and the president of the united states last night in a town hall was asked if he was
3:22 am
going to the border. there is no record he has gone to the border. now, when asked in a very soft, town hall yesterday, about the border,here's his response. >> do you have plans to visit the southern border? >> i have been there before, and i haven't -- i mean, i know it well, i guess i should go down, but the -- but, the whole point of it is i haven't had a whole helluva lot of time to get down. i have been spending time going around looking at $900 billion worth of damage done by hurricanes and floods and weather and traveling around the world. but, i plan on -- now my wife jill has been down. steve: so jill has been down. but, let's. brian: she tells him everything. steve: let's examine what he said there so busy working on the hurricane and all the damage and stuff like that. so he doesn't have enough time to go to the southern border, but when you look at his record,
3:23 am
he spent 19 weekends at his homes in delaware. i think we have got a graphic. which is curious because the "new york post" did the math and apparently he spent at least part of 70 days in delaware homes. no time to go to the southern border. ainsley: look at the next one. steve: 10 weekends in camp david. ainsley: when afghanistan was falling. steve: no time to go to the southern border. nine weekends at the white house no time to go to the southern border. one weekend overseas when he went to the g 7. no time obviously that week. all those other times, and for him to say i have been there before, i know it well. ainsley: no record of that. steve: fox news, our brain room looked into it, and there is no record of joe biden as vice president, as senator, as a private citizen ever going. and that's why peter doocy asked jen psaki this: >> why hasn't president biden ever visited the southern
3:24 am
border? >> what would you like him to do at the southern border and what impact do you think that would have on the policies. >> why doesn't he want to go. >> gronk it's an issue of wanting to go. what's the issue most constructive address challenging situation at the border and broken immigration system. >> is this the one crisis then that he thinks he can imagine better from here without having seen it than going to the southern border. >> i can assure you the president is well aware of what the challenges are in our broken immigration system, something he watched closely over the last four years. ainsley: what would you like him to do down there? we would like him to go down there and talk to our border patrol agents and see firsthand what they're going through. he doesn't advocate for them. advocates for people illegal trying to get into our country. brian: why show up, ainsley, at a hurricane? what do you want him to do, fix it? do you want to get a screw gun and load up a dump truck? no you want to go down there and show you care. you want him to go down there and interact with the people

matter most. the officers and patrolmen and women what is it really like? then you demand to say i demand to see that tent. i want to make sure those kids aren't being abused. i want to make sure this situation is exactly like it's being portrayed from my staff to me. and if you don't want to see anything firsthand, then just tell me your schedule is too busy or you don't want a job as president of the united states. ainsley: almost like he doesn't want the support from these kids down in texas on the border in arizona. brian: you mean the votes? ainsley: why wouldn't he go down there just like in a hurricane you go down there and show you care. see the destruction, it talk to the red cross. it. steve: have a better handle. ainsley: shake hands with the border patrol agents support you and appreciate your service. brian: hop in a pickup truck with me and tell me. tell me how much worse it's been and what the big challenge is now. and whether square are a guys and hops on fox. yeah the president is really engaged. instead, a president who never
3:26 am
talks about the border. never gives interviews with the press and meanders around on the stage with anderson cooper with soivel yeses. steve: jen psaki said essentially working from here handling what's going on but yet last night the president said, you know what? i just don't have time. our point in that graphic is, the president has time. he has made the decision not to go. and do you know why? because the optics of seeing him on our southern border where there is a crisis although they will not call it a crisis, is not helpful to him. that is why on immigration and border, those are his lowest polling numbers because of what's happening right now. ainsley: the supply chain crisis you think he would go there and see the problem. he couldn't remember the name of long beach. l.a. port. anderson cooper had to fill it in for him. the other one. what am i doing up here? anderson cooper said long beach. brian: anderson cooper had the questions and answers.

3:43 am
general. but somebody is in charge at the department of justice as a as a matter of fact, yesterday, it would have been nice if we had had that person in front of us since the attorney general didn't know anything -- he was so ill informed i thought he was sergeant schultz from hogan's heros if you remember that. he knew nothing, he -- even when it came to 5,000 isis firefighters that were released from bagram probably a big chunk got on airplanes sitting in america. he didn't know anything about that. steve: absolutely. let's talk about something else, you are from southern california. we know that the ports of l.a. and long peach are backed up record amount of stuff needs to be offloaded from container ships. how big a problem are the unions out there when it comes to getting the stuff off because rioters had a poll that looked
3:44 am
at 350 container ports and l.a. and long beach at the end of efficiency. anywhere else in the world quarter of a million dollars plus year you would be able to recruit a few more workers to be able to expand your ability to unload and move these containers, for whatever reason you cannot see the sun set in san pedro right now because the containers block your view for the last hour as the sun sets. it is that bad. it's not just that there are 60 plus ships sitting there waiting to unload. it's that there are containers in front of containers so that they can't even give you the container that may have been on shore for a week. and all of that goes back to the inability to expand and meet this challenge and get caught up once they got behind they actually became less efficient. i have been involved in import and export for over 40 years. i have never seen the kind of
3:45 am
inefficiency that you see when you physically go to the port. and i went to the port to see it and was just astounded at what the truck drivers go through. imagine you trying to move one container and you wait all day as a truck driver to get one container that inefficiency means that those truck drivers moving containers are now about one fourth as efficient it prereflects in four times the charge to get a container delivered. all of this is part of our inflation. steve: and prices for everything are through the roof. and this is going to be a big problem for everybody. congressman, thank you very much. for telling us about the long longshoremen out there. i don't think a lot of people knew that. >> they are good people. they just cannot get their union to let them expand the force to meet the requirement. that's got to change. steve: the president was very proud of himself having talked them into working overnight but maybe he needs to do a little more talking to them. congressman, thank you. >> thank you, steve. steve: all right. it is quarter before the top of the hour. carley is in today with

brian: that's a little different. someone should tell the president. that's misinformation. ainsley: why don't they dethat in all of these government positions. we don't want you to lose your job and have kids worry about food on the table. why don't they say let's test you every day. why don't they do that businesses front door go in a little room and get a test. steve: we do that here outside of studio d. brian: delta airlines wrote me the other day delta has testing options but they charge you. they charge you $200 a month. we are going to test you, we are going to charge you. that figures into your decision. healthcare. steve: well, down in florida. ainsley: $200 a month? steve: it's an incentive. it's like bill de blasio is going to get people the shot $500. ainsley: i would rather spend $200 a month if i didn't get vaccinated than lose my job. steve: $200 i believe is to compensate them on the offset

brian: he got fired. here is what he has he has his state attorney general and his state governor fighting to get his job back. if that happened in new york you would have the state governor and the mayor cheering that he was fired. so, just goes show you how confusing this gets like the governor of arizona is standing up for -- against his own city council, i think it was tucson that is firing people for not getting mandates. you only have so much power. the president has so much power. the governor and the mayor only has so much power. confusing because everyone is on different pages. steve: it is but the u.s. supreme court has had the chance to intervene in different vaccine mandate cases where they would essentially say you can't fire people. but the supreme court has essentially said nope, we're not going to get involved in that in other words, the mandates continue. so people are getting fired and the supreme court apparently they're okay with that. brian: the president would not even acknowledge the problem with people, great people

getting fired as cops and firefighters and medical workers and teachers didn't even give that a second thought yesterday. meanwhile, this was stunning news. fox news alert. actor alec baldwin accidentally shoots and kills a cinematographer and injured a director after firing a prop gun on a movie set in new mexico. he did not think was loaded. ainsley: then he was reportedly seen in tears after the incident. steve: carley shimkus joins us right now with what we know. carley, this happened in santa fe, new mexico, where they were making a movie. carley: that's right, steve. police identifying as alec baldwin as the one who fired that prop gun that accidently killed director of photography halyna hutchins. she was airlifted to a hospital where she was pronounced dead. director joel so you zoo was hospitalized and reportedly been released. it all happened on the set of the western film rusk in new mexico. all production has been halted and that the safety of our cast
4:10 am
and crew remains our top priority. baldwin is actor and producer in the film. 63-year-old was reportedly seen outside the local sheriff's office in tears. the president of the screen actor's guild issuing a statement mourning hutchins loss we are devastating by tragic news hearts go out to the director of photographer halyna hutchins and joel so you zoo. we did not have all the facts. we will continue to work with the production, the other unions and authorities to investigate this incident and to understand how to prevent such a thing from happening again. so far no charges have been filed. but an absolute tragedy and an accident that unfolded that effects a lot of people. steve: yeah, no kidding. thank you very much, carley. so now a criminal investigation is underway to figure out what exactly came out of the gun. tmz is reporting that apparently it was either shrapnel or a bullet. mr. baldwin was taken in by the
4:11 am
detectives from santa fe and was questioned. he was not charged. he was released. nonetheless, you have got to figure out what was in the gun? ainsley: they will do the investigation. this is the front cover the post. here there is a shot. can you see him dressed up in his costume and he has fake blood on his shirt and fake blood on his coat. he posted this on social media just a few hours before the incident happened and he said back to in person at the office, blind me it's exhausting. little did he know his life would change forever a couple of hours later. our hearts go out to his family, to him, i'm sure is he devastating and to her family she is from the ukraine and the director is going to be okay it seems like. brian: i think is he a co-spruce producer in the movie sometimes producers so hands on there is relationships with these cinematographers. relationships with people behind the screens. ainsley: clearly she was right there with him. steve: you wonder how it happened because during the movie, if you are going to shoot somebody, there would be somebody, you know, the person
4:12 am
you are going to target over there somewhere you would aim at. but, if he hit both the cinematographer and the director, clearly they were just off camera. maybe he was aging it just slightly off camera. we don't have -- some of the facts we don't know exactly was it during actual filming. walls it during a rehearsal? who was on the set? we don't have enough information. tragic. brian: goes back to brandon lee, the last time we heard about this 1993, bruce lee's son. a dummy round got lodged into the barrel of a gun and fired into his stomach and second dummy round went off. the so-called blanks can do damage, clearly. steve: well, in that case, they had left the primer charged in the cartridge and that ultimately is what killed him. because when they did the autopsy, they found a 44 slug in brandon lee's spine.
4:13 am
ainsley: lee family is saying they don't want these prop guns used on movie sets. brian: switching gears now. back to what something else said effects irving's lives and that's inflation and supply chain. we know that 40% of our material, the stuff that we order. the stuff we are bringing in and the company needs comes through the ports of los angeles and long beach. and that's congressman darrell issa is out in san diego now. he is back in congress. and he was talking about the things that he could do. he is talking to you about inflation. and what the tools that the president could implement if he really wanted to get this thing done. steve: here's the thing long beach and l.a. they are two of the least efficient ports in the world. 350 container boortz, los angeles, i think, is 230? and long beach is 233 rather 300 -- they are both in to 300. so in efficient. what he said is something we haven't heard.
4:14 am
we have heard well, you know, we don't have enough truck drivers. did he not blame the truck drivers. he blames the unions. and, remember, it was last week that joe biden said hey, i sat down and talked to walmart and i talked to fedex and i talked to the unions, and they have agreed to off load stuff at night and the union also work at night. clearly, according to darrell issa, you can blame the unions for a lot of the problem. ainsley: here he is. >> i have been involved in import and export for over 40 years. i have never seen the kind of inefficiency that you see when you physically go to the port. and i went to the port to see it. and was just astounded at what the truck drivers go through. imagine you trying to move one container and you wait all day as a truck driver to get one container. that inefficiency means that those truck drivers moving containers are now about one fourth as efficient. it reflects in four times the charge to get a container delivered. they just cannot get their union to let them expand the force to
4:15 am
meet the requirement. that's got to change. ainsley: when you look at those boxes that are on these ships or look at these trucks, you know it's not just toilet paper we are missing. it's important things that are coming over from china and other countries and vietnam. including some of our drugs and hospitals have undergone so much over the course of the last few years. now undergoing another emergency. they are in short supply of some of the discussion we all need to keep our lives to stay alive. such as chemo medicines and heart disease medicines. the fda is listing 10 drugs in sport supply right now. steve: covid and supply chain. not just injectable drugs. shortages of it prescription vials and vials to put the medicine in. while the white house poo poo saying this a good problem because there is a lot of demand or you are just upset about the delayed peloton. this is impacting so many people because it is drugs they need to
4:16 am
stay alive. and these hospitals, university of virginia medical center says they don't have enough anti-inflammatory medicine for chemo which is also used for covid. so if they run out of that the doesn't get the chemo they could actually die. ainsley: this is america. you possibly won't get your chemotherapy. brian: if try something having one port open up 24 hours, that is not enough in our country to think you are actually trying to solve the problem. you have all these ceos and you come up with one answer and that suffice tore anderson cooper on cnn last night incredible. ainsley: coming up, the fallout after dr. anthony fauci's agency admits to funding gain of function research in we hahn. brian: keep china in check sent off not one but two hypersonic missile test. general jack keane it reacts to

and tested two hypersonic missiles leaving the u.s. intelligence agency stunned. china now shooting down reports claiming they merely carried out routine testing. fox news senior strategic analyst not buying it retired four star general jack keane, general, should would he be concerned about this hypersonic test? >> oh, yeah, absolutely. first of all china is denying that they actually did anything like this. they are trying to say well, what we were really testing was a reusable spacecraft. well, if that was the case, why are you doing it to secretly? the second thing, maybe of concern to us is, certainly our government isn't admitting either that this was hypersonic orbital test. certainly the congress wants to get more answers from that i believe that the government has got to come forward and be straight up with us in terms of what is actually happening here. is this a bona fide new threat? i suspect it is. what this is and why we're so
4:23 am
concerned about it, this is technically speaking is called hypersonic fractional orbital bombardment system. that the is fact that you can send up a rocket with a hypersonic missile with it, orbit the earth and deliver a nuclear weapon to the target. so that kind of capability is new. it opens up a new chapter, certainly in the weapons arsenal. why is that, brian? because we're simply nuclearizing space. it's very interesting that during the cold war the soviet union and the united states voluntarily agreed not to conduct this kind of weapons. no fraction orbital bombardment system, no nuclearization of space. china, who professes to never ever conduct a first strike has now developed a first strike capability where we cannot -- where we don't have early warning and we don't have much
4:24 am
capability to defeat it that is the harsh reality of where we stand today. we have to have a sense of urgency to modernize our nuclear program need that desperately tpsdz behind we develop the early warning and detection capability to deal with this threat. brian: brand new category. do we want to do this? we have $3.8 billion in our budget for hypersonic weapons is this a category for space force. >> space force will certainly have a real to play here. what we're really talking about is we knew eventually space was going to be weaponized. domain out there obviously that all of our countries are dependent on it and it's not surprising that at some point weapons are going to be in space either with satellites or also
4:25 am
space stations, et cetera. so, yes, it's not only this deterrence that we have to make sure we acquire but also our conventional deattorneys with convention deterrence eroded because of the 9/11 wars. we are literally playing catch up here because they have us out gunned and outmanned. i understand what the president is saying professing confidence in the military, yes. he is going to do that as commander-in-chief. but, the truth is, we have erosion in our capabilities and we have got to move quickly to get that kind of deterrence. after all, the only thing we are trying to prevent here is a war. and the way we do that is the same way we did it for 40 years with the soviet union. make sure when the chinese look at the american and allied capability, that is so significant and the costs would be so great that they would not commit an act of force as a result of that. that is deterrence.

nih and naid categorically has not funded gain of function research. again, we have not funded gain of function research. i don't know how many times i can say it, madam chair. we did not fund gain of function research. steve: you get the idea? despite continuous denials from dr. fauci the national institutes of health which he runs now admitting the u.s. did fund gain of function research at wuhan through a grant provided to the nonprofit ecohealth alliance. a top nih official writing, quote: the limited experiment described in the final progress report provided by ecohealth alliance was testing its spike proteins from naturally occurring bat coronavirus circulating in china capable of binding to the human ace 2 receptors in a mouse model. all right. got a little technical there. let's try to figure out what that all means. joining us now from the world health organization adviser
4:40 am
jamie metzl. jamie, good morning to you. >> hey, steve. steve: so, dr. fauci, where he said we have not funded. we have not funded gain of function research. technically, he is probably correct. because, why? >> because what they mean by gain of function research is very narrowly defined according to them by a 2017 nih document meaning taking a virus that is already able to infect human cells and making it more infectious. but the real question in my mind is not whether it was or wasn't gain of function research, it's just what was it? what was funded? what was happening in the wuhan lab and that's what we really need get to the bottom of it. steve: because, ultimately, you know, and there is growing conscientious that, you know, this could have been a lab leak this could have been some experiment gone haywire and now 5 million people are dead? >> it's up to 15 million if you use the economist's figures. but i have say been saying early
4:41 am
last year a lab leak origin is a very real possibility which is why we need the fullest possible investigation. and certainly that will require access to all relevant samples and personnel in china. we need to point fingers everywhere. just fairly. and certainly we need to look closely at the nih. nih needs more transparency, the ecohealth alliance, which is as you mentioned not profit group getting funding from nih and some of that went to the wuhan institute of virology have been anything but transparent. we need much greater transparency by everyone. and we need a full examination into the origins of the pandemic. steve: absolutely. but, nonetheless, and you have seen dr. fauci on television, when he is up on capitol hill. he is very defensive. and he is adamant. and as you put it earlier, they have -- the lawyers, at nih have narrowly defined what gain of
4:42 am
function research is. and apparently he feels that they are within that lane. but, nonetheless, the american public needs to know that the united states government, you know, gave these grants to this organization that put money in the hands of these people. >> yes. no, that's exactly right. that's why we need a full investigation and in some ways, i think this binary question of gain of function research was it or wasn't it is really a bit of a side show. what we need to know is what happened, what role did the united states government play and most importantly what was happening in china. >> ultimately what it comes down to you can be on television calling for transparency but until china actually helps us out, you got to figure the numbers they have given out are just complete fiction it would behoove the administration. we need to hear joe biden say something or the president, the
4:43 am
official administration come down and say, look, we don't think china is telling the truth. and we need better transparency or we need cooperation, he has always talked about how he is friends with the president of china. needs to pick up the phone and say hey, what exactly happened there? >> yeah. so joe biden has actually been saying a lot. when he authorized the 90 day intelligence review. that was first full intelligence review by the united states government of pandemic origins. but we all need to do more. it's just outrageous that china is preventing a full investigation. we need much greater transparency. and we need greater urgency in pushing for the kind of full investigation that's required. steve: after joe biden's 90 day i object tell review they said inconclusive. leaves a lot of us as you just said now we need more transparency. sir, thank you very much for joining us on this friday. >> my pleasure.

4:45 am
president biden says that's not going to change any time soon. >> don't have a near term answer. i don't see anything that's going to happen in the meantime that's going to significantly reduce gas prices. >> as of thursday, the average gas price nationally is sitting at $3.36 a gallon. and the l.a. dodgers world series hopes are still alive thanks to the bat of chris taylor. >> taylor. not one, not 2. but three. taylor hitting three homers leading l.a. to 11-2 victory over the braves in game 5 of the nlcs. the series heads to atlanta for game 6 tomorrow night. those are your headlines, steve, over to you. steve: that's great. carley, thank you very much. meanwhile, what kind of a day do

hollywood as alec baldwin found himself in tragedy. peter: authorities in new mexico a prop gun with blanks apparently misfired and killed crew member and injured the director. brian: carley shimkus with what we know so far. a lot of questions. carley: a lot of questions but here is what we know. police identifying alec baldwin as the one who fired the prop gun and then accidentally discharged killing director of photography sonia hutchison. airlifted to a hospital where she was pronounced dead. director joel sosa was hospitalized and reportedly been released. all happened in the set of upcoming american western film called rust. that is set in new mexico. in a statement rust movie productions said all work has been halted and that the safety of our cast and crew remain our top priority. police are investigating how and what type of projectile was discharged from the prop gun. baldwin is an actor and producer
5:04 am
on the film. the 63-year-old was reportedly seen outside the local sheriff's office in tears. a representative for baldwin refused to comment on the accident. so far no charges have been filed. just two days before the fatal incident hutchison posted the video celebrating horseback riding and support for the family since the accident. peter: it is absolutely awful. let's bring in geraldo rivera. >> good morning. peter: a terrible, terrible thing that has happened and once again, you know, in the history of hollywood we have seen a number of times where the prop guns which are supposedly, they don't have anything lethal in them wind up killing people. geraldo: you know, i remember investigating the death of brandon lee under very
5:05 am
circumstances, the son of the famed martial artist bruce lee and i interviewed the mom and it was a tragedy. no one could understand how brandon could be shot and killed when they are so careful. i really feel for the family of the victims in this movie the alec baldwin movie and for him he's going to be haunted by this tragedy for his whole life. i mean, it's unclear whether he intentionally discharged the weapon which would be very, very unusual. there are wranglers around and people are intent on enforcing discipline with the weapon where accidents can be eliminated hopefully and in this case a discharge, whether he stumbled or aimed, i don't know what happened other than the fact that the poor lady, the mom, you know, she has a 10, 11-year-old kid and director of photography and now she's dead, you know,
5:06 am
the director wounded. where this all goes from here, i don't know. whether or not they will be criminal charges,ic depends on the chain of custody of the weapon involved and exactly how it came to be discharged. obviously on the civil side that'll be lawsuits for wrongful death and so forth. it is -- i feel awful for everybody involved. alec baldwin will now live -- now he will live with awful tragedy shadowing every move. ainsley: changed the lives of so many different people. geraldo, you have been to the border, joe biden, they looked back in history as senator and vice president, he has not gone to the border and last night at town hall with anderson and anderson asked him, listen to what he said. >> do you have plans to visit the southern border? >> i've been there before. i know i will, i guess i should go down but the whole point of it is i haven't had a whole lot

5:08 am
the world, come on over, but they did with their -- with their policies, they thought compassion would rule the day instead it was the, you know, the road to hell paveed with good intentions and we have a chaos at the border. i've used that term a couple of times. it is the best term. you have the record crossings, record arrests. it is anarchy at the border, the border patrol trying their best but people just want to come. just take haiti just for one second. we watched the haitian group, you know, walk their way through latin america through the gap, the jungles carrying their children and then through the whole of central america and mexico to get into the united states, why? now we know, look at haiti now. 17 americans or 16 americans and a canadian missionary including 5 children including an 8-month-old are now kidnapped in haiti. that's why the people are running away. when you have a president that says come on down and you have
5:09 am
chaotic poor countries where people just want to get the hell out and get to the golden -- the land of promise, the united states, that's the recipe for disaster. we need the wall, we need the president to engage the president of mexico. they've got to do something and the fact that he has ignored it studiously i think really reflects very poorly on president biden. brian: geraldo, i do agree with you, we definitely immigrants while every country decreasing from japan to russia. i agree with you and one way to do it and the reason with the haitian stories that are different these guys aren't coming from haiti, they are coming from central and south american countries who have gotten the go sign from this president. they are walking across the border with biden-harris shirts on. this is totally their fault. i don't even think it's good intentions it's called doing the opposite of trump for political purposes and being clueless on
5:10 am
how to handle it. geraldo: one thing, brian, that the president really missed the mark on is talking to the president of mexico. when trump was in office, he called the president and threatened mexico that if mexico didn't do its share to stem the side, the folks walk across 150y even get to our southern border. trump really forced them, forced the mexican government to take responsibility for the people in its territory and it really had the effect of stemming some of this tide. when biden on the other hand is made fun of by mexico doesn't deal with mexico, doesn't wheel tariffs, for example, as a way to get mexico to comply, as he tries to be mr. nice guy, i think that he has sown the the
5:11 am
cloth, they need to finish the wall, the money is being wasted. take some concrete step to show that the united states is serious, that every country deserves secure border. immigration is great. brian alludes to it. russia is shrinking, japan is shrinking, america is being muscular and growing much of it by hybrid and immigrant digger that we were blessed to attract but it's got to be organized. it's got to be systematic and it's got to be fair and right now you have back to that word chaos. peter: there is chaos and the courts said joe biden you cannot derail the remain in mexico program. they are going to start it next month and they're already 60,000 people on the mexican side of the southern border ready to come on in and it's a mess coming up then. in the meantime i want to talk to you, geraldo, about what start today on fox nation and that is cops all access.
5:12 am
tell us about it. geraldo: well, i'm delighted about it. many, many years ago along with the creators to have program john langley and malcolm barber we did kind of a dray run and we did a couple of our network specials called american vice that led to the cops series, the iconic series was on the air for well over 30 seasons, everybody loved it but then, you know, some sad things happened with police misconduct including the death of george floyd at the knee of derek chauvin in minneapolis and even though cops had nothing to do with the tragic death. people said wait a second, this program has nothing to do with, you know, any act of violence by cop or perpetrator, it was a chronically of men in blue. cops are good, we used to love
5:13 am
cops. fox had the guts to bring it on the air. all access, we put it in context and we talked to some of the officers involved in the vivid kinetic clips that cops consists of and the reaction so far has been magnificent and they just asked us to continue producing these programs through april. so you'll have geraldo to push around at least that long. peter: we love that. you were talking about the clips. here is a clip of us, what happens with now that marijuana is in large part legalized in a lot of places across the country and then how do you -- when you combine that with a traffic stop, what happens? here is the officer? >> both of them had felony warrants. the simple traffic infractions of them not having head lights on that led to so much more. that's also the case for marijuana. if we smell marijuana in a vehicle that's probable cause for us to search a vehicle.
5:14 am
so in that aspect it's going to hurt there. we will not be able to find as much because every stop is an investigative stop. peter: what you have done on cops all access is you have updated things with new interviews with people who know exactly how it pertains to today and law enforcement. geraldo: one quick point about marijuana, it will enormously complicate police work and in the old days you had pot, you went to jail. now how are you going to send people to jail when you have senators, congressmen, newsmen, you have people with back aches and foot aches and headaches smoking pot. more and more states are legalizing it and law enforcement has to catch up with that and in the meantime the poor officers, they are the point people, they are the ones that go by the open window and they never know pot smoke is indication the guy has a gun in his happen or he's going to blue your brains out if you make the wrong move.
5:15 am
it's a very tough job. you know, we have to rally around our officers. we've got to embrace them. the real problem in our society is a civil war that's going on with gun violence that's really inflicting cities like mine in a way that is historically very distressing. peter: check out cops all access which is the same kind of pass geraldo had at studio 54 back in the days. geraldo: some day in f you want to know, ainsley, i will tell you all about that. ainsley: i would love that actually. peter: thanks geraldo. ainsley: 8:15 on the east coast and still ahead president biden mocks freedom in cnn town hall last night. >> so just try to make this a political issue, freedom, i'm the freedom that kill you with my covid. come on. freedom. ainsley: congresswoman elise stefanik reacts after the break.

5:21 am
mocking people to use freedoms not to get vaccine and here to react is new york congressman elise stefanik. good morning to you, congresswoman. congresswoman: great to be with you, ainsley. ainsley: what's your reaction when you hear him say that? congresswoman: my reaction is this is absolutely absurd and sadly it's typical of joe biden to attack everyday freedoms. first of all, they are turning their back on law enforcements and first responders who put their lives and their health on the line every single day particularly during the covid pandemic. we've also seen in new york state the consequence of these unconstitutional mandates with governor hochul's mandate regarding vaccines. we have seen walkouts and this is where our health care, hospitals, community centers are facing staffing shortages and in my district we have a rural hospital that's no longer able
5:22 am
to deliver children, deliver babies because of these mandates. so it's unconstitutional and it is an attack on everyday freedoms and it's something that house republicans are fighting back against and i give credit to republican governors across the country who are also challenging these unconstitutional announcements from the administration. ainsley: yeah, and there are certain circumstances. you mentioned hospital that is can't deliver babies because they don't have the workers. doctors said not to get the shot so she could have a better chance of getting pregnant because she was worried about that and you know for me at least time is of the essence when i wanted to have a baby and i wanted a baby so badly and in certain circumstances don't you think there should be an exemption? >> absolutely there should be religious exemptions and we want to encourage every american to have those important conversations with your doctor. we are promoting vaccines. we have invested in vaccines but every person situation is different. in many cases people contracted covid and have the natural
5:23 am
immunity. so there needs to be flexibility. these mandates are unconstitutional and it's attack on freedoms in the country and to have the president of the united states mock freedom, frankly that's un-american. ainsley: what about new york city, things are about to change here after bill de blasio said there's a mandate? congresswoman: well, it's just another example of new york city spiraling out of control with the failed leadership from mayor de blasio particularly after two years when we've seen skyrocketing crime numbers in new york city, the fact that he's instituting the mandate for law enforcement officers, for first responders and for city workers, it's going to have a hugely negative impact both on the way of life in new york city but also on the safety and security in new york city. so new yorkers have to stand up and demand better leadership from their mayors, from their governors and from the president of the united states. ainsley: they were our heroes 18 months ago and now they are possibly losing their jobs because they are not going to get vaccinated.

5:43 am
strong storm system and several on the way and that's going the produce the rain and heavy mountain snow which is going to be great for the drought. all right, it's friday. say hi to steve, ainsley and brian, my friends. thank you so much for coming to fox -- >> ainsley: hi. steve: good to have them all. brien: 18 minutes before the top of the hour. next guest is speaking about the abuse she endured while in care youth facility as a teenager. now she's joining lawmakers and calling the biden administration to take legislative action to stop the abuse of children at group youth facilities. >> i was strangled, slapped across the face, watched in the shower by male staff, called vulgar names. children were regularly hit, thrown into walls and even sexually abused at provo. ainsley: my goodness, entrepreneur and influencer
5:44 am
joins us now. good morning to you, paris. >> good morning. ainsley: i know that your parents thought it was hard tough love, what is their reaction now? >> my parents are just in shock, heartbroken, angry that they were lied to about these schools and the parents are just as much victims as the children that have to go to these types of places. steve: you know, you were so -- your story is amazing and if nobody has read it it's in the washington post where you tell when you were 16 you were kidnapped by people working for your parents to take you to one of these group facility home for treatment because you were rebellious and during your young life apparently they put you in four different facilities. so you saw better than anybody how bad these places could be but because essentially they would not allow any word out, you could tell your mom, hey,
5:45 am
you're not going to believe what's going on but they controlled every -- all of the communication, so your parents never knew what a living hell those places were. >> my parents had no idea, they thought that was a normal boarding school. they have such deceptive marketing that the families have no idea and being a child there, they cut you off from the outside world. everything is supervised when you call your parents, if you say one negative word about the place they immediately hang up the phone. you get punished and have your phone privileges taken away. so it's very hard being there and being able to tell what's happening to you. brian: two questions, paris, why are you coming out now and how hard was it dealing with that once you got out? >> when i got out of there i was just so traumatized that i didn't even ever want to think about it or speak about it out loud, so it was something that i just buried inside for over 20
5:46 am
years but i'm so grateful that i have told my story now because it's just been so healing and the fact that it's made such impact so far, changing laws in 7 states and now here trying to push legislation on our bills so it's just -- i'm very proud to have turned my pain into a purpose. ainsley: yeah, yeah, exactly. tragedy into triumph. what would you like congress to do, what was your message in washington? >> my message to everyone in washington is this is not a political issue. it's not about democrats and republicans. this is a human rights issue for children who are dying in the name of treatment, so i really urge congress and the president to act now because this is an emergency. steve: when you say children dying in the name of treatment, in your op-ed you actually talk about that, you talk about a young man who died. i'm sure his parents as well
5:47 am
thought, you know what, a little tough love is what the kid could use, not that kind of love. cornelius fred ricks was 16-year-old and he was restrained by 7 staff members for 12 minutes and ended up dead because of that. that should not be happening. these people are not properly trained. they should not be restraining. there needs to be rules, regulations or staff that are going to keep getting away with this. ainsley: how did parents find out which facilities are good and which are not? >> it's very simple, you do your research. there are breaking code which is a survivor community that i work with. they have types of treatment and then all of the bad places and what's happening because they just use such deceptive marketing that you really, really need to do your research. steve: to read her story go to
5:48 am paris hilton thank you for joining us from washington. ainsley: thank you, paris. steve: good luck. ainsley: more "fox & friends" coming up in a few minutes but first we will check in with dana perrino. >> i'm glad that i was here to able for having her. the white house and the national school organization in communication. bill bennett will weigh in. president biden tried and tried again to get the legislative agenda out of desk spiral. will they ever get a deal larry kudlow and chris wallace have analysis? and quick-thinking veteran who said not today, you will meet the marine. see you at 9:00.

when you're driving a lincoln, stress seems to evaporate into thin air. which leaves us to wonder, where does it go? does it get tangled up in knots? or fall victim to gravity? or maybe it winds up somewhere over the bermuda triangle. perhaps you'll come up with your own theory of where the stress goes. behind the wheel of a lincoln is a mighty fine place to start.

5:54 am
brian: what's your role in this catch? go. >> my role would be, i don't know, i kind of am a platform for, you know, all the anglers of new york city to share information with each other. i run the brooklyn fishing club and one of our missions has always been to connect and serve the anglers of new york city so once we found out that these tuna were around, we used our instagram fishing club to kind of promote it, promote the bite, show the world that, you know, there's outstanding fish here in new york city. you don't have to travel too far and here we are, you know, over the summer i'm sitting on rockway beach and i'm looking out and i can see the tuna feeding a couple miles offshore. so it's really been unbelievable. brian: kyle, i've never done anything like this, i hear it's very hard to reel this fish describe the physical toll. >> oh, well, the fish are solid
5:55 am
muscle. a small one is 200 pounds. some of the fish are over 700 pounds that were being caught. so we are fishing with rods and reels that are larger than a human head. 40, 50 pounds of pressure at any given time. you're fighting them for two hours or more. the immense pressure, you couldn't physically hold it. we leave them in the rod holders or back harnesses and after a long battle you fatigue the fish and come back to the surface and you take pictures or try and land it. brian: wow. when it's time to -- when it's time to sell, you could sell this thing, right? how much -- how much tuna is on the tuna? >> there's a lot of tuna on the tuna. unfortunately i can't sell it. i'm not permitted to but i do enjoy it thoroughly. i love sushi and this is the
5:56 am
freshest sushi. don't get better than cutting up your own pieces. brian: why in new york, why now, have you talked to experts, why are they coming here? >> we have large amounts of bunker fish. they are miles and miles of them and the tuna fish found them and they stuck around for 2 and a half months feeding on them before they swam off. that's what held them here. brian: you got them. víctor lucia and richie colonbo, thank you for the great fish story. >> thank you for having us. brian: more "fox & friends" in just a moment. ♪ ♪ ♪ little fleet. big relief. try it. feel it. feel that fleet feeling. aaaand welcome back to guess what it is.
