governments can do outwardly in the region to get the root causes and create more legal pathways to increase access to protection. the president says he plans to call out us lawmakers voting against immigration reform saying legislators from one party block this initiative we will call them out at a later time in a respectful manner. the president made a deeper commitment and benefit of migrants, texas, greg abbott who deals with the brunt of the border crisis wants the president to engage in tough talk with president lopez obrador writing i urge you to engage with the mexican government about ways to prevent the smuggling of individuals,

drugs and the continued flow of illegal immigrants into texas. i urge you to take action to protect american assets from seizure by the mexican government. meanwhile the conversation with canada's prime minister justin trudeau will focus less on border talk, more on pipelines in the electric vehicle tax credit for american-made cars. this was announced by the president recently, auto-parts frequent across the canadian border many times in the united states and canada depend heavily on each other, trudeau expressed concern about the proposal, what it means specifically for his country of canada. he plans to express some of those concerns in the oval office later today. back to you. >> thank you. while president biden is often seen walking away from the podium not taking questions from reporters, jen psaki insists it is just the media complaining. >> i have to say that is more an issue related to the white house press corps it is their job, then it is for the american public. it is not accurate to suggest he isn't accessible or doesn't answer questions. >> jen psaki coming to the defense of the vice president despite her abysmal approval ratings. >> i think it is been easier and

2:08 am
president it is such a copout and so indicative of where we are as a society where things are not going your way you are a victim, automatically a victim, not because of your own failings idea is treating her they were fawning all over her because she's a woman and she is a woman of color, not the opposite of that. no one is being harsh on her because of that and president biden even said he wanted to choose a vice president who is a woman specifically not because of her credentials but because of her sex and her race which i personally don't think is the right way to go. if you want to be chosen it should because of all those things, because you are the perfect person for the job. it isn't working out on that front, given her poll numbers. as for the media saying it is
2:09 am
clear the biden administration is shielding president biden from the media because they are afraid of what he will say or not be able to handle a situation. so the administration having a tough time especially in the polls and it is unfortunate we will not be hearing from the president after this important meeting. and and pete texas hosted the show, and opened with a joke. >> i never thought i would host a hollywood award show. here we are in the real hollywood. hollywood, florida. >> florida governor ron desantis welcoming the show to the free sunshine state. >> we were not going to let florida descend into a fauciand dystopia were peoples freedom

18-year-old defendant's former lawyer predicted a year ago. that attorney, john pearson to discuss. thanks for being here. of the weapons charge was factually incapable of succeeding at the outset under wisconsin law, then why did the prosecution bring it anyway? >> the answer is pretty obvious in my view. this has been a political prosecution or persecution from the beginning. i don't think any fair-minded person, juror, judge, you have to look at the facts, with all the high-definition, the video, and come to any conclusion other than kyle rittenhouse is innocent based on self defense. the gun charge was clear. once you unpack the statutes, because kyle with an ar 15 he had in his position, the statute, 17-year-old in wisconsin in an open carry state

2:29 am
attempted to use the fact kyle exercised his constitutional right to remain silent and that is trial advocacy 101. you cannot do that. i think it will be full of acquittal. if not it will be a mistrial or without prejudice for a hung jury. >> if the jury to find rittenhouse guilty and the defense team, jury intimidation based on noise outside the courtroom, could you see the defense team bringing another motion the jury verdict should be thrown out based on intimidation. >> that is entirely possible and it has been a while, in the long sweep of history, this

intimidation, in the civil rights era and could be invasive for habeas corpus after trial. there are lots of remedies. that they are unexpected, - >> we appreciate your time and insight. president biden will avoid tough questions from the press after his meetings with leaders of canada and mexico but the white house doesn't think americans care. >> it's not accurate to suggest he is and accessible. that's more an issue for the white house press corps than it is for concern to the american public. todd: we will see what joe concha sinks next.

finger at the oil and gas companies including exxon mobil and chevron for the rising cost at the gas pump. if you are paying $3.41 to philip that is up $0.09 in the past week. in california, well over one dollar more than that, record high prices. the soaring prices in the president's popularity as they put a strain on american pocketbooks days before the holidays. in a letter to the federal trade commission president biden writes this, the oil and gas companies in the united states by market capitalization on track to double net capital, the last full year before the pandemic. i do not accept hard-working americans paying more for gas because anti-competitive or otherwise potentially illegal conduct. considering the same for line 5, on federal land.

todd: joining us is joe concha. isn't access to the democratic process literally the foundation of our democracy, not just a media issue? >> the american people would want to hear from their president when he is about to transform the country. he spent trillions of dollars, the white house press secretary, said he shouldn't be accountable for any of his actions, for supply chain crisis, gas prices, what is going on at the border. he doesn't have to answer for that. it is the white house press corps, the president hasn't done a one on one interview in months. he really takes questions for mostly friendly press. and he's the most guarded gifted president of our lifetime. you will find is cheney at mara lago before you find president

2:49 am
need to be investigated. can the president do something to decrease the price of gas? >> the president has done everything to stifle production. we've seen all out war started with cancellation of the keystone pipeline and he has greenlighted the lord stream pipeline and let's get the facts straight. this time last year there were 312 rigs actively drilling and now there are 556, it is a 75% increase. the pandemic was terrible, demand disruption and i represent one of the most prolific oil and gas producing regions in the world. what we say is midland over moscow, odessa over opec. the president wants foreign production and all out assault through every policy you see so the american public is not buying this rhetoric. carley: is there anything the oil industry can do to knockdown prices a bit or is it all in the
2:50 am
hands of president biden and the administration? >> it really is and it is a perfect storm because of the pandemic. when you look at capital markets and the access to capital, the esd environmental and social governance a lot of institutional lenders are using with pressure from the biden administration, pressure from the left makes it very difficult to access that capital and factor in the labor shortages that are difficult to get people to come back to work and it is a perfect storm. oil and gas companies are doing everything to increase domestic production. we were energy dominance at the beginning of 2020. at the beginning of 21 the president has done everything to completely stifle production and is asking opec to increase production when we can do it domestically. jillian: another topic is the border issue and we are learning there is another large migrants

2:59 am
they have got to stop these investigations. they have got to stop this politicized department of justice in the biden administration that is sending out indictments for people who don't show up to congress to testify about a commission that is unhistoric, uncongressional, unamerican, and should end. they have got to stand up to the abuses coming from the biden administration. that is what will spur them to an even more seats next year. >> 15 seconds before we have it go. a lot of democratic retirements. are there any possibilities that republicans flip some of those seats? >> absolutely. one of the reasons -- some of them are in very blue districts. and they are quitting because they know they are going to lose their gavels and power. this is an indicator that even the democrat know they are not going to hold power. when nancy pelosi says she is not running again, you will really know that they know they are not going to have any more power. so stay tuned. todd: 11 months of the horse race to go. the horses are getting out of the starting gate.
