10:00 am
for if i may. >> i've been married 18 years, this is old school for me. i am the oji presence, the package finder. some solo maintenance, my husband. >> what about you and your new home? >> i wish i had this idea for my husband and complaining about all of my daughter's orders. >> thanks to you all, and now here "america reports." >> never too many princess dresses, a fox news alert to kick off "america reports," reese and virginia turning a referendum on the biden agenda. youngkin appearing to gain ground with polls that open in less than 24 hours, hello, i am sandra smith in new york and john, welcome back. >> john: it's good to see you again, i have more princess dresses than i need but not as many as i want. i'm john roberts in washington, making the final pitches to
10:01 am
voters and some predict could have major implications for the midterms. >> sanda: as democrats could be in for voters. and they think the country is on the wrong track compared to only 22% heading in the right direction. >> john: kicking off our one of "america reports," joining us in moments with his analysis, but we begin with alexandria hobbs life at the richmond, virginia, where both candidates are campaigning today. hi, alex. >> hi, john, both back in the battleground territory, youngkin with the rally behind us, a booming one. yesterday they were on opposite sides of the state. and the campaign here in northern virginia speaking to the past accomplishments as the former governor, most impressive for the schools, and called his republican opponent dangerous.
10:02 am
>> endorsed by trump now nine times, just had his ninth one and tomorrow we will have a little telecom, but i guess that it will finally go through here. >> he is talking about a tele- rally that president trump will be hosting tonight for glenn young can, and not part of it. you made it a point in fact that he is not the primitive party on the trail at all, he traveled to far southwest virginia where we asked supporters who had also voted for trump if they were disappointed that the former president was left off the campaign trail. >> it's because we support trump and we love trump does not mean that we are not going no support to the great conservative candidates that we have. >> youngkin is campaigning here in the richmond area today, and going to virginia beach and up to loudoun county for a rally tonight. >> tomorrow virginians will go to the polls and we will make a
10:03 am
decision about our future and let me tell you what's going to happen, we are going to sweep our statewide offices. ♪ ♪ >> definitely a lot of enthusiasm all around, especially on issues like education. now starting where he will continue to campaign in the richmond area here today. >> john: he has part of the trump campaign playlist, no question about that. but alexandria, thanks. >> sandra: terry mcauliffe making a major strategy change in the race after months of trying to tie glenn youngkin to donald trump, mcauliffe is now saying that the race is not about the former president. >> this is about what is happening in virginia, it's not about trump, it's about who will take it next level. spill let's bring in fox news contributor bill mcgurk, and
10:04 am
was a speechwriter for george w. bush. what do you think? is this a sign of desperation from the campaign, this strategy change? >> yes, i think that the remarks that he made that it is not about trump is ridiculous, he has been making it about donald trump, he has not been running against glenn youngkin, but donald trump, it's not a coincidence that came two days after the polling averages for real clear politics at 5:38, they flip. before that it was a dead heat, a tie or terry mcauliffe with a slight lead. now the lead has gone to glenn young can and i think what we are seeing is panic in the campaign and what it highlights is that he has nothing to fall back on because the campaign has been about donald trump, scaring people with donald trump and implying that his rival is a racist. >> sandra: i will get to that
10:05 am
in just a moment, but you say all about trump and using panic to describe the campaign at this point, here he is in his own words with this very strategy using donald trump. >> i am running an extreme right-wing trump loving candidate who has been endorsed seven times. >> we don't need someone who is a donald trump want to be, and/or seven times and says he is running because of donald trump. >> planning i want to talk about, i would ask him where is donald trump? storming six times, now is he here? is he scared of him. >> i call him donald trump and khakis. do we want a lap dog to donald trump to be our governor and the commonwealth? no, we don't. >> sandra: i don't think based on that you can review that he has used over and over again in his campaign donald trump to try to win the thing.
10:06 am
>> it leaves him with nothing now. the irony as he was trying to tie glenn youngkin to donald trump's claims of the stolen election and that was behind barack obama as return where he accused him of engaging in lies and conspiracy theories, but when stacy adams game to whip up the democratic base, he endorsed her claims of the stolen election. i think what it really highlights is that terry mcauliffe has no positive agenda for the voters of virginia. it's all about scaring people about trump, he sometimes says abortion will be banned if glenn youngkin's governor, but he is not saying i'm doing this where glenn youngkin is offering a major tax cut saying he will crackdown on crime and giving parents say in the schools of their children, i mean these are all bread-and-butter issues and terry mcauliffe does not have an answer and the reason
10:07 am
democrats are running scared about this is because this was their kind of campaign for 2021 in congress, scare and yell trump whenever anybody brings anything up, and show them as racist or white supremacist. >> sandra: speaking of the race card, you are talking about the lincoln project that was written over the weekend calling it a relentlessly anti-republican out it, saying that's the truth of the matter when it comes to the dirty campaign trick and virginia, here is the editorial board, clang the race card when they are worried about losing an election, and that's exactly what the operatives did this tiki torch stunt has backfired and may harm rather than help at the polls. what did you make of this attempt and will it backfire? >> i think it has backfired, the campaign now gets it, but that kind of waited a day after some
10:08 am
of the staffers had tweeted it down, it was fake white supremacist claiming support for glenn youngkin, but i think that terry mcauliffe has to answer for other things, and looking at it this weekend in not just the lincoln party sleazy fake news kind of stunned, it's the campaign that has been built on accusing mr. youngkin of tracking with racists. not sure it will work, barack obama came in and hinted at that, but we have doug wilder, the popular former black governor of virginia saying that terry mcauliffe has not been that good on issues for black americans. i just think none of this is working. it doesn't seem to be moving the needle in mr. mcauliffe's direction and i think that will be scary to a lot of democrats looking ahead at next year. >> sandra: you set it up for us tomorrow, and as we look at the midterm election, still here and from "the wall street journal,"
10:09 am
thank you. and john, we will know more about the race in 24 hours from now. speak to your lips to god's ears, let's hope this is a case. we will be talking about this later on this hour with the parent from fairfax county, virginia, who says in the past she has typically voted democrat and did vote for joe biden, but is changing her vote now a lot of it based on what is going on out there in virginia in terms of education and what is happening in the schools, so that is interesting. coming up soon, fox news alert now, president biden in scotland for the u.n. summit in glasgow, but his own agenda at home stalled on capitol hill. jacqui heinrich traveling with the president in my ancestral home, you are a lucky woman. >> i sure am, i think that i pulled the best assignment. good evening from scotland, in addition to the land remarks, the president gave an unplanned speech where he apologize for
10:10 am
the trump administration pulling out of the paris climate accord and promised his administration would be different. >> i guess i should not apologize, but i do apologize for the fact the united states in the last administration pulled out of the paris accord. they had as they say seen the lord and what is happened back home. the incredible change that has taken place. >> but as of yet to the president has not carried his climate legislation across the finish line, the $555 billion in proposed spending is still stalled in congress even as the president touted a possible vote this week. democrats are still retooling that plan and trying to add more climate and the drug pricing back in, it's a process we have seen delay a plan vote twice now. moreover joe manchin derailing the language in the president's original plan that would mitigate admission over concerns
10:11 am
of impacts in the fossil fuel industry in the white house is trying to frame the agreement for progresses push forward so that it is solid enough for the president to stand on, calling volatility and energy crisis to deplete energy and says plan tax credits to make homes greener will cut the image eased by in 2030, also repeating online we hear consistently, these incentives will create jobs and it created a feeling that his remarks were as much directed at foreign leaders as they were to lawmakers in congress who still need to pass his bill. but all of that is being overshadowed by video of the president closing his eyes for a lot longer than a blink prompting speculation he was falling asleep. he closed his eyes, then he opened them, then he closed them again until an aide came over and talk to him. that is the last we will hear from the president today ahead of his press conference in
10:12 am
glasgow tomorrow and here's hoping we get to ask him a question after yesterday calling on a list of reporters that he was instructed to call on. >> john: we saw that yesterday, have one for me while you are there as well. >> i think you will -- i will. >> john: it will help you sleep. >> sandra: dramatic new video capturing the moment someone tosses a molotov cocktail into a deli, what led to that incident and what could've been worse than that? >> john: new york city bracing for the unintended consequences of the vaccine mandate, thousands of city workers including police and firefighters, emergency workers forced to stay home without pay. could it make the city less safe? ♪ ♪ >> as of this morning the total number was 2300, which is phenomenal number. they say should be under 1,000. ♪ ♪ veteran homeowners, if you're ever going to use your va home loan benefit to get cash, now is the time.

spending agenda on the economic crises, now one of the top advisors argues the spending package, wait for it will actually help stop inflation and the supply chain issues, let's bring in freedom most economists, fox news contributor for economic adviser of president obama, welcome to both of you. you will have to explain that one to me, how you can implement more spending and actually help the inflation problem, is in all the spending what leads to the higher prices of just about everything? >> that's called a non sequitur, and makes no sense, it's very simple even a high school economics education you understand that when the company prints more money and borrows more money and spend more money that means prices of everything are going to rise, we have 5-6% inflation right now and i worry that this spark much higher inflation. but then you have to worry about what this will do to jobs, there
10:30 am
is a report out on friday that now the democrats are looking at raising tax rates granted for millionaires and above to over 50%, i don't care if you are a millionaire, billionaire, truly an, the idea in america texting people at a 50% tax rate will hurt the economy and is not fair. they have a lot of work to do, i would just agree with one thing, you said that that it is getting closer and closer, i don't think they are getting closer at all. they have a lot of leg work in their caucus. >> sandra: we are the closest we have ever been, who are we to doubt the transportation secretary, but robert, i know you have questions on the word transitory when you have done that on this program many times and now pete pete buttigieg is using the word, here he has with his own thoughts. speak of the best thing we can do in the short term is to deal with the transitory issues to put the pandemic behind us which
10:31 am
is where the president's decisive leadership is so important, the best thing we can do for the long run for issues around pricing in the supply chain is better infrastructure so that goods can move smoothly in the country and better propane policies like child care. >> sandra: can somebody explain to me what has been transitory so far, food, fuel, housing, everything is sky-high and showing no signs of letting up, robert. >> there is a lot to unpack there, with the secretary and what steve said, he used printed spend, and as you know under president trump, borrow print and spend is what we would do. and steve admit that because it went up and taxes went down, spending went up, if steve is seen that as inflation, that's what we did, but you are right, sandra, i'm not for the transitory word, i think he was wrong to use that term, no
10:32 am
question when enclosed on the nation in the world 12 plus months for a pandemic and then reopen it with supply issues and consumer spending, heads up demand ready to go, you will have inflation. we have increased wages and prices i do think the secretary of transportation is onto something, if we enhance our infrastructure for rail and trains and so on and so forth, that will help the supply issue, it's not going to be imminent, and then with things like children's tax credit and some other things, elder and child care, we will help supply-demand mismatch on labor, so it's not going to be imminent, but those are helpful things on some of the things causing inflation. >> sandra: you would hope that there was more of a plan in place to help out to these issues today, because to robert's point, steve, the overall package he is talking about will bring supply chain
10:33 am
problems, that's not an overnight fix, but lastly when you talk about inflation and a look at the pain that is out there, when we look at the restaurants, dominoes, chipotle, mcdonald's, all of these restaurant executives are painting a very bleak picture going forward and many people in their home towns have seen it and seen some of the restaurant chains limit their store hours as they are restricting the way that you can order and how much, they are shortening menus because they can't get people to work and all these high prices are digging into their profit. >> with respect to what robert just said, i agree, i think we borrowed way too much money even in the trump administration, the tax cuts created a great economy, but we did not get control of the spending. i don't understand why that's the logic for spending $4.5 trillion more, we borrowed during the cold a crisis because we thought it was an appropriate thing to get through the crisis, the crisis is over and we should reduce our debt and there is a
10:34 am
good study by casey mulligan at the university of chicago that basically says he thinks it will be 8 million fewer workers if we douse the bill because we are paying people not to work. people aren't going to work. >> one, steve, you would've passed an infrastructure bill if you could've passed it, you would've been supported of a bipartisan infrastructure bill, maybe not this one, but you would've been supportive, number two, i would disagree that the spending post-pandemic on child care and elder care is not critical to our country, it is. and i think it proves events in some ways for the social safety net that we have from actually going to fund and where you and i will disagree, climate action is important for us to get our arms around, so i support the changes of climate action and look at tesla, there is a reason it's a trillion dollar company, people want to be -- >> sandra: i have to leave it there, steve, five seconds. >> $160 million a day because we

months with president biden, lady schumer, speaker pelosi and my colleagues on the reconciliation bill and i will continue to do so for the sake of the country, and the house to vote and pass the bipartisan infrastructure bill, voting is still hostage in his neck when it work and getting my support for reconciliation, throughout the last three months i have been straightforward about my concerns that i will not support a reconciliation package that expands social programs and irresponsibly adds to the $29 trillion in national debt that no one seems to really care about or even talk about, nor will i support a package that risks hurting american families suffering from historic inflation. simply put i will not support a bill that is this consequential without thoroughly understanding the impact it will have on our national debt, our economy, and most importantly all of our american people. every elected representative needs to know what they are voting for in the impact it has
11:06 am
not only on their constituents, but the entire country. that is why we must allow time for a complete transparency and analysis on the impact of changes to our tax code and energy and climate policies to ensure that our country is well-positioned to remain the superpower of the world. while we inspire the rest of the world towards a clean environment, this can all be done. i for one won't support a multitrillion dollar bill without greater clarity of why congress chooses to ignore the serious effects of inflation and debt that have on our economy and existing government programs, for example, how can i good conscious vote for a bill that proposes massive expansion of social programs when vital programs like social security and medicare face insolvency and benefits to start being reduced as soon as 2026 and medicare in 2033 and social security. how does that make sense?
11:07 am
i don't think it does. meanwhile elected leaders continue to ignore inflation that interest payments on the debt will start to rapidly increase in the fed has to start raising interest rates to slow down the runway inflation with the factors in mind and all of these factors at least spoken about i have worked in good faith for months with my colleagues to find a middle ground on a fiscally and i repeat that, a fiscally responsible piece of legislation that fixes the flaws of the 2017 trump-tax bill that i thought was we did far, far for the high-end furnace, and american families and children, however as more details outline the basic framework released what i see her show gates, budget gimmicks that make it to $1.75 trillion bill estimated to

11:12 am
as joe manchin said compromise is not good enough for some democrats, what does this mean for the democratic party? >> well, they have an issue and we are watching it play out with the liberal wing of the party refusing to vote on infrastructure unless the reconciliation and the tax is driven, and two joe manchin came in as a moderate saying you are not going to hold infrastructure hostage by forcing me to vote for a reconciliation package that has not been scored, that we have not seen the tax cuts and we need to pump the brakes. and he just pump the brakes on the whole entire kabul agenda on tv at 2:00. >> john: after pete buttigieg says we are closer than we have ever been. let's go to the virginia race, because terry mcauliffe said something interesting going into tomorrow in the early bill that has been going on since the getting of september democrats hold a 54-31% edge in ballot

return, we don't know who they are cast for, but we understand that there may be some democrats switching the votes and some could be republican votes, but he says that democrats will need a big turn out tomorrow and republicans always rely on a big turnout on election day because of the typical advantage that democrats an early voting supposed to be rainy and cool tomorrow, what do you predict? >> you are exactly right, we do need a big turnout tomorrow, they built their lead on absentee voting, one of the things is that they have the election day voters into the absentee balloting process, so we feel strong, he is finishing strong because he has the momentum in the message. he is talking about parents having a say in their education which i think that every voter agrees with. he is talking about lowering taxes and he is keeping a virginia-focus where mcauliffe is bringing in his d.c. swamp teachers and make a mistake after mistake after mistake in alienating parents who have been on the frontline of the pandemic and helping their kids get educated.
11:14 am
>> sandra: bill mcgriff was here from "the wall street journal," talking about where he sees desperation on the part of mcauliffe's camp to change their strategy and really use donald trump as -- against his candidate in the race against youngkin in the race, what do you make of the change in strategy and is it showing in the same thing? >> it is flailing, he is flailing. he can't run on his record and it's bringing in all of his d.c. friends, even joe biden who he said was a drag on his ticket, and youngkin is running as a businessman recognizing the concerns that parents have and a lot a lot of the problems are of his own making. when you call parents domestic terrorists, when you say that parents should not have a edge in their public education. it really struggling through this pandemic as their kids were not in the classroom and we were
11:15 am
trying to get them on zoom classes and a deficit between virtual learning, for them to alienate parents has been a bad strategy and they continue to double down it is hitting the right time in the right time and it goes in. >> john: democrats typically own the education issue, republicans drive it but never make much headway, take a look at the way that the polls have changed in the last few weeks, october 10th-13, mcauliffe leaning 35-43. and now youngkin with a 15% advantage, if that was the advantage in early part september, you would assume that he would cruise to victory, but this has happened in the last few weeks, has there been enough time in the early voting for people to say this is how i am feeling about the republican now? or were they already set? >> you are right, it is not on
11:16 am
election day, it's an election month in voting has been going on for a long time in the polls have shifted during that time period, there are enough votes out there for youngkin to win tomorrow, they have to turn out, get your friend, this is an enthusiastic game and whoever has the momentum and can turn out the most will win and education is at the forefront. as you watch what has happened in loudoun county and two school boards and parents who had real concerns for their children safety as you have seen the department of justice under joe biden label parents domestic terrorists were going to their school boards and raising concern. i think that this has awaken a lot of parents across virginia and is moving independent voters towards glenn youngkin. >> sandra: if you put on the most important issues for governor in the state of virginia come into your point about education top and the list, but look at the economy right there almost tied with education as big as that has become a notes race, so what's
11:17 am
your party's message obviously not just for this race but as we look for any implication in the midterm election, what is your message on your party's message on the economy we are searing so many crises with inflation and supply chain issues? >> we recognize that we need to restore economic prosperity and that starts by getting people back in the workforce and stopping the supply chain issue that is raising prices, that is causing businesses to close, they are so many things that have come from the policy as of joe biden that of hurt our entire economy starting with her thanksgiving, we will be paying more for gas, for turkey, for everything and it is hurting the american people, the republicans have a plan that will talk about backing the blue as crime rates are rising and education making sure we put kids first and not the union first. >> john: all about go tv tomorrow we will see how it works out, hopefully an answer tomorrow night as well. it's always great to see you, thanks for coming in.

11:19 am
the most interesting comments in the entire press conference by joe manchin who did not take questions, he spoke for 5 minutes and then left, and he said i will not support reconciliation legislation without knowing how the bill will impact our debt and our economy as you allude to he said that they are trying to play shell games. he agreed to 1.75 trillion, but what they might do in this piece of legislation and this is why the details are so crucial, you provide tax increases to fund the programs for a longer period of time and that something joe manchin has been against. he's fine spending 1.75 trillion, to come back to the shell game, that's why you need an announcement from the budget office even if they got the text together right away and move the case in the house until wednesday, it would be hard to have a final score and there are probably some moderate democrats
11:20 am
in the house of representatives who would one that before voting. and really what joe manchin is also doing here is turning the tables on his progressive colleagues, because he once said infrastructure bill that was passed in august past now. >> john: you have the progressive caucus on one side saying we will not pass the bipartisan infrastructure bill without the reconciliation bill, now joe manchin saying i won't pass or entertain the reconciliation bill without the bipartisan infrastructure bill, so have you got this caught between an irresistible object and immovable force? >> yes, they need us vote, if he is out there and kristen cinemas out there, for him to call a press conference and say this is where i stand, keep in mind how he chased him all over the building all day long and for him to call a press conference and say this is where i stand and i'm not happy and really throw some of his democratic colleagues under the bus especially those on the left, that is significant. that will probably ignite the left because they will say we signed off on this already and
11:21 am
agree to this, but you and joe manchin are doing these things that they always accuse him of doing is trying to move the football at the last minute. that is significant. and again, this is where he is basically saying that those progressives are holding the infrastructure bill hostage. they want to pass these bills quickly in the house of representatives, preferably in tandem, keep in mind that the house has debated in the infrastructure bill all they have to do is vote, but the progressives want everything to go in short order back-to-back in again, the longer that these bills sit out there, the longer, the greater the potential is for problems. >> sandra: something we cannot see as we watched joe manchin, describing the cameras and reporters growing by the moment as they were preparing to hear, obviously a pivotal voice in this moment as was put it this morning, the moment of truth. we will get back to you with any breaking news. >> john: i messed up my idiom,
11:22 am
immovable object and irresistible force, in new york city not at work today, and not getting paid as is the covert vaccine mandate taking effect. while some union leaders are warning the mandate could have deadly consequences, the mayor says there're been no disruptions to city services. all live in new york city with the details. >> hey, john, a bit of a mixed bag it, this does include all city workers, so we are talking sanitation and police department and of course firefighters. so within the fdny, the rca and some of the delays in service because there are fire engines and ladders that are not operable today with the amount of workers that they have out from the mandate looking at about 20 percent of those fire trucks that are not operating today. so what that means is if you have an emergency normally, the closest fire engine to you would be the one that responds, but if it's not running today you're
11:23 am
going to have to wait longer to get back with the emergency answered, so talk about wait times that are increasing in some cases by a minute and in other cases we are being told it could increase by ours. if you are stuck in an elevator you could wait for hours for someone to be able to respond. when it came to the vaccination mandate, city workers had nine business days to get up to code and they needed to have that one shot for it to happen. the fire department saying this happened way too fast and was not necessary to be this fast and out the entire public response system is in jeopardy. firefighters are working around the clock to make up for those that were placed on leave. take a listen. >> as of yesterday we told 1700 firefighters that were placed on leave without pay because they had not received vaccination, from 6:00 this morning they put it over that every firefighter that worked last night cannot leave until they figure out what is going on. it's chaos.
11:24 am
>> it applies to all city workers including sanitation and trash piled up with fewer workers on the job available and those that were available moving slower. so last check that i had 83% of the sanitation department is vaccinated about 20% of their workforce at home when it comes to the alarm that we mentioned in the sound bite, at this point it is still active, so you will be seeing some firefighters working today that means that they have been working since sunday. >> john: obviously a cumulative effect on all of this. thanks, good to see you. >> sandra: the top of the shortages on the nypd or next and city detectives are struggling to keep the peace because they don't get the support they deserve and seen that happen all over the city as he says for the first time in new york city history, elected leaders on every level are hostile to work enforcement and the city, state, fed, and
11:25 am
president of detectives, thank you for being here. this is hard to take in. to see them not getting the support that they need. how can it operate with the men and women in blue? >> it puts the public at risk, and for the city at work too. >> sandra: it's just hard to see, when we count on such great work, that are not getting the support that they need. as far as the vaccination mandate is concerned, do you see anything changing as we get closer to losing more men and women in blue on their city streets? >> i don't think so, the reason that this is rushed is all politically dead, because he wants to run for governor. and there is no scientific evidence to rush this mandate. it could be much safer and
11:26 am
simpler for the workforce of new york city. >> sandra: you are saying this and said this to the team that it's the first time in history you say that you had all three entities of government turned their backs on the police. and i mean you set on a city level, state-level, and a federal level, talk about the unprecedented nature of this moment? >> 39 years in law enforcement i have never ever seen the lack of compassion for the people that live in the city, the reform laws are not working, it's quite evident. and looking at the homicides in the shootings that are up, since the reform has been enacted, and the officials have an action to keep the people and city safe and they are not, they should be reversing the discovery laws to make people want to come forward and cooperate with authorities
11:27 am
and not fear for their lives and there are laws on the books that mandate one year in jail if caught with an illegal firearm. if you fix those three things, the shootings in new york city would drop dramatically. the new york city police department has taken almost 8,000 guns off the street since the bail reform has been there and other officials not doing their's. >> sandra: crime is still spiking in the city and we wake up to horrible stories like this one video of this molotov cocktail that was hurled into a brooklyn bodega and is actually frightening video to see that. this is a 38-year-old man who carried out this attack. you see the footage inside the deli and the fire that was apparently trying to throw a second cocktail and the bystander was able to hit that down and has since been arrested, but this is happening on city streets today.
11:28 am
>> yes, new york city detectives are investigating these crimes and unfortunately our justice system is letting them ride out again to victimize the people of the city and it's not fair to the law-abiding citizens of new york city, we have to concentrate more on the victims and not the criminals. >> sandra: i can report that the two daily workers inside the store were able to run, one of them suffering nonlife-threatening injuries, but it is horrible to see and happening on the city streets at the time where we are seeing the police force go down and many more retirements in the wake of these mandates to come. thank you. >> thank you, have a great day. >> john: terrible to see that happening, sandra, the supreme court with the restrictive abortion laws, shannon bream is up next with that. >> sandra: plus is terry mcauliffe getting ready for a legal showdown? jonathan turley says that may be the case based on the big lawyer mcauliffe just tired.

by john durham over that whole steele dossier thing back in 2016. and you call the hiring astonishing and a new column, why? >> for one thing his lawyer is carrying enough baggage for amtrak, i really was quite surprised, because you have a special counsel in the field looking at his conduct in the last major election cycle while he is advising mcauliffe on this election cycle and you don't want your attorney dividing his time in that way, the expectation is even if he is not indicted that he will be the subject of any report that durum comes out with. he has been accused by two "new york times" reporters he and the campaign of lying to them about being behind the steele dossier according to sources on the hill was sitting next to john podesta the chairman of the campaign when he
11:38 am
also denied that role behind the dossier. i said that these are questions about his conduct during that election. he has also been sanctioned by a federal court in a prior case, but what stood out is that elias just recently challenged republican victories in elections and lost and the obvious question is mcauliffe preparing for a contingency plan to challenge any victory by his opponent? >> john: after you wrote about it, after the campaign, we sent an email asking if they would be part of the postelection challenge, the mcauliffe campaign i don't think they meant to write back to, perhaps they accidentally hit reply all, because the answer that came back was can we try to kill this? in a little later on there was
11:39 am
another message that said to dispute the challenges, so rather than mounting the challenges, and might be that they are there to submit the challenges, but can we try to kill this? it tells you where they are coming from. >> and you have that twitterresque aspect to its reminding what happened with hunter biden's laptop where the media killed that story before that election. what was also odd is that hours later the same spokesperson sort of gave an all clear to the media saying we did kill the story. and they seem to have a general consensus except for some news organizations like this one not to discuss picking up an attorney who is at the heart of a special counsel investigation currently in the field looking at a prior election. >> john: and you have mused
11:40 am
about the possibility of what would've happened with with the media had this been glenn youngkin hiring a trump attorney to mount challenges. >> right. could you imagine the cacophony if youngkin hired a sanctioned republican attorney who was the subject of an ongoing special counsel investigation? there's no question about the criminal charges, but the conduct, the ethics from the last election. >> john: always a pleasure to spend time in the law library with you. >> thank you. >> sandra: john come everybody out there has heard by now the chance that are popping up in one stadium or another, one apple or another with a four-letter word to attack the president. >> john: when a reporter misheard a chance, it was a viral meme minus the dell vulgarities. some say it's not just offensive to repeat it by claiming he saw the same level of isis

commercial airplane pilot used it during his announcement passengers, now cnn analyst getting slammed for taking even a step further likening that phrase to supporting terrorism, mollie hemingway on that now. the fox news contributor, almost hard to believe this happened, first off here's the commercial airline pilot and the video that went viral. >> about seven or 8 miles an hour. going 77 degrees? welcome to southwest airlines, welcome aboard. >> sandra: so that happen, by the way, welcome coming in the analyst at yale institute for global affairs that took took twitter to consider how the pilots, bill would be received if you said something else, and experiment leper southwest pilot
11:49 am
to say long live isis before taking off, my guess is that the plane would be immediately grounded to the pilot fired and an issue of statement two of the airline within a matter of hours. what do you make of that comparison, mollie? >> that would be a delusional comparison, was a participant in the russia collusion lied that donald trump sold the 2016 election by colluding with russia, does not need to be an analyst on what is going on, but what you're seeing with so much media pushback is the phrase let's go brandon does not just make a mockery of joe biden, and makes a mockery of the media because it was that reporter that said when she heard this very vital phrase against president biden she restated it as let's go brandon. so the way of making fun of how the media just so much to protect joe biden, our favorite candidate, so these people are terrified by the phrase because they recognize that this is making them out to be a joke,
11:50 am
that is making them out to have not as much power as they would like to have, so they respond as if it is terroristic where it is a lot of the country making fun of how bad they are at managing world affairs. >> sandra: really interesting to see the airline's reaction to it, the whole video on the airplane was taken by an associated press reporter on a flight from houston to albuquerque, and made that announcement as the airline issued a statement saying the company does not condone employees sharing their personal and political opinions on the job serving their customers and one employee's individual perspective should not be interpreted as a viewpoint of southwest in the collective 54,000 employees, ted cruz went to slam that cnn journalist by the way, reaching important said this, the network is deranged and no, it is a factual matter reporting is not the same is just agreeing with the current president. i don't know, mollie, how we all just lost our minds?
11:51 am
i don't know. >> the thing that is so frustrating about this particular thing, people are saying it's horrible to say let's go brandon when we endorse four years of the trump presidency, prominent people using horrible language against a president and there was a parade of cat ladies wearing themed hats around the capital and that was not in any way offensive to these people who say that making a fun lighthearted cheer about how bad the country is being run right now and about how bad the media are at covering it is ridiculous, nobody believes after what we endured that anyone legitimately has a problem with this phrase. >> sandra: good to get your take on that, and congrats, a new book out, how the democrats as he is the elections come up on the screen for the viewers to see, thank you. >> thank you. >> john: alec baldwin speaking on camera since the shooting death on the set of his new movie and says he can't talk about taking the deadly shot but
