or make me feel like i'm not really "there." talk to your doctor, and call 844-234-2424. looking live at capitol hill, he has been at it for 8 straight hours breaking the record for the longest speech in-house history. >> a vote a massive bill this morning. you are watching "fox and
2:01 am
friends first" on this busy friday. todd: democrats hoping to pass the tax and spending plan last night but the minority leader's marathon speech forcing pelosi to push to 8 am eastern today as the package will at a whopping $367 billion to the federal deficit. that is carley shimkus, far cry from the president's promise that it would be fully played for. carley: breaking news from washington. >> kevin mccarthy was able to delay a house that with more than a our speech. >> i don't know. i know america will know more about it. it is your money.
2:02 am
what you do with your money is to decide, not washington bureaucrats. >> mccarthy's beating nancy pelosi, back in 2018. mccarthy's last-ditch delay was to stall passage of the bills back better bill, the nonpartisan congressional budget office estimates the bill will add $367 billion over the next decade. the deficits are closer to $160 billion, that is not 0 like the president has claimed. >> doesn't cost a cent. $1.75 billion, guess what, it is paid for. >> this is in some gigantic bill but it happens to ordinary people. it is fully paid for.
2:03 am
>> talking about the bills back better and infrastructure bill people don't believe it will help, only a quarter of americans say the president's social spending bill will help their family. only a third say they believe will help the economy. more say they take it will hurt their economy and their families. leader mccarthy has been able to delay the vote but it is unlikely to change the outcome. the house will be back in three hours. democrats are believed to have all the votes needed to pass today before moving onto the senate. todd: let's pop onscreen the speaker, almost, mccarthy, to that point, he is trying to mark his territory to become speaker following the midterms. todd: physically speaking right now. carley: nancy pelosi and the title role but this is twofold, set the tone for the midterms and convince the american people
2:04 am
this is not a good bill and he has had 8 plus hours to be able to do that and the goal is likely going to pass after 8:00 at this point but at some point the american people need to know this is not going to be good for the. this is mccarthy's less chance to convince them. carley: he doesn't have to do this because speaker pelosi already delay the vote to 8:00 this morning. fred, from pennsylvania last hour, why is the minority leader still speaking of the vote will take place in 3 hours and congressman dollars that he speaking directly for the american people. you can see him getting applause from his party who supports him and that is because the minority leader and republicans feel this bills back better bill will damage the country by increasing the size of the government. when you think of the irs
2:05 am
looking into people's bank accounts and giving handouts to the american people with no work incentives attached, something that could fundamentally change this nation. todd: this is not what the american people want because the american people are smart, they recognize all this is going to do even if they get some free stuff is going to drive up costs via inflation. they know this is happening, they are seeing it happening currently and pumping this much money into the economy is only going to make this problem significantly and accidentally worse. that is why kevin mccarthy is making a smart power move here convincing the american people of this and hoping they remember. jillian: if this passes the house today, it goes over the senate, chuck schumer wants the senate version of the bills passed before christmas and have this wrapped up with the house and senate compromise by january.
2:06 am
todd: this will get changed. jillian: tensions running high outside the courthouse as the trial of kyle rittenhouse, the judge bans one major news network from the trial. todd: brooke sigmund live, beginning another day of deliberations. >> reporter: it is day 4 of jury deliberations in the trial of kyle rittenhouse. the judge admits 36 pages of jury instructions are, quote, very confusing allowing jurors to take those instructions home with them on thursday. the wait for a verdict stirring tension among protesters outside the courthouse with clashes continuing for another day. kenosha police maintaining order but the national guard remains on standby a judge band m s nbc from the court house as an employee is suspected by police the following members of the jury intending to photograph them. >> that he was a producer with
2:07 am
nbc news, plan for m s nbc, stated he was instructed to follow the jury bus. >> reporter: nbc news denying that report saying the freelancer never contacted the jurors to photograph or intended to photograph them. meanwhile the identity a man fills kicking rittenhouse on the ground just before one of the fatal shootings is revealed as maurice free the land. rittenhouse said he began firing after being jumped that hit by freeland thinking he would have, quote, stomped my face in if i didn't fire. the jury will reconvene this morning at 9 am central time. todd: sean hannity ripping media coverage of the trial. >> there coverage of the kyle rittenhouse trial has been unethical at best, not benefiting real news organizations. no presumption of innocence.
2:08 am
no due process for kyle rittenhouse, no will of law, no equal justice under the law, no equal application under the law. facts, eyewitnesses, video evidence, none of that matters to nbc. it is always the same thing. the political narrative is more important, and rushing to judgment. todd: hannity says is the latest in a long line of stories nbc news has gone dead wrong. todd: the white house throughout north american summit. watch this. >> the flow of migrants. >> thanks. carley: president biden's approval rating continues to nosedive, vice president kamala harris denies being underused, as the border crisis persists. >> you don't feel misused or underused? >> now, i don't was the reality

2:14 am
todd: the biden administration considering details of us funded aid to afghanistan before the taliban and take over. and records obtained by fox news a watchdog attempted to block that move. tom fitton joined me now. why did the administration wants to hide this public information? >> they say it was for safety concerns. afghanistan was collapsing because of biden's surrender and they wanted to take material down from the internet and had a multi-agencywide effort to start censoring material and a special inspector general for afghan reconstruction was tracking spending totaling $146 billion in afghanistan. he said what are you doing here?
2:15 am
the documents have been appear as long as 10 years and the law requires they be up here. they have to be public, the inspector general's act. he says i someone more senior to tell me we need to take this material down. they have a senior state department official to send a letter saying temporarily we may have to take this down but if you look at the material is clear that strong objections including legal objections to this being violation of the law. these are documents we normally don't get so my guess is the special inspector general wanted this information to be public. it usually takes forever to get documents like this so i think they are smarting over this censorship. this is not publicly disclosed until people figured out stuff censored on the internet as americans are trying to figure out how much equipment and
2:16 am
wasted money was spent in afghanistan and especially equipment that may have ended up in the hands of the taliban and. they had a parade the other day using a woman to parade in the middle of the country. todd: there are a lot of details in this. what is your one big take away statement about this incident? >> looks to me based on our experience, there was no reason to take this material down. when that happens you have to wonder, was the material taken down to protect president biden from further negative headlines over his humiliating surrender in afghanistan? todd: if your member the entire time it all seems to be about positive media coverage for the white house and what they got ultimately was the exact opposite in light of the horrific decision they made. a veteran impacts things as he sought help from the us embassy, officials would not give them assistance. let's listen to the unnamed that.
2:17 am
>> begged him to let me in. it is embarrassing. a us citizen is not permitted entry. todd: i don't understand this. why is the state department refusing to help not just the soldier but so many americans just trying to get home? old >> it is unfathomable to me. i don't understand it and again the failure of oversight by congress and the media to all the biden administration accountable for the disaster that they created that not only lost lives directly but continue to put lives at risk. todd: state department hiding behind privacy considerations saying they have no further comment, not really giving an answer. this is unfathomable to use your
2:18 am
words. i don't get it and i don't think the american people understand it either. this is not how america works. appreciate your time this morning. carley: a bill honoring the 13 servicemembers killed in afghanistan now heads to the president's desk but after months of silence from the white house, is that enough? how do the goldstar families feel? the father of two marines killed in kabul that they want answers and accountability. they both join us live coming up next.

2:24 am
carley: what about you? what is your reaction to this award for your son for the congressional gold-medal? >> it is kind of awkward because there has been so many wonderful warriors that have come before our boys and girls that were recently taken from us. it puts us in an awkward position because so many people have contributed to where we are today. we struggled with our 13, anymore that were important puts us in an awkward position, truly honored. >> such a humble response. both of you were at the patriot

world events at the same time these challenges are exacerbated by an administration that made poor decisions not just in the first few days but right until this week and if the administration is openly hostile to one particular industry and dismissive of hundreds of thousands of workers it is a frustrating time to be in industry because we can't do what we need to do it hands were tied. todd: what is president biden doing regard to preventing you from doing what you want to do? drilling is one of the focuses. elaborate on what the biden administration is doing to miss you guys up right now? >> the biggest shell is continuously mixed signals for the markets and investors as well as industry. my message to the administration's stop. stop trying to do what you think is going to do to help american consumers because you made a
2:50 am
huge mess and focus on doing what you have already done. stop sending mixed signals to the markets 5 times a day, shutting down pipelines or threatening to shut down pipelines and let us go back and consider what you have done so far and the consequences, restart policing program internet stand stop threatening wall street investors with liability for investing in oil and gas. >> the american people are feeling pain at the pump, the number that 51% in gas prices, but you season states, look at california, california is through the roof, $6, $7, 45 seconds remaining. will that trend change in this president biden does something or are we in for a world of hurt 2022 and beyond? >> still some pain felt. the reality is there's not as much as there used to be but oil
2:51 am
and gas is a long-term investment and the administration has got to stop sending mixed messages. the results, keeping people on the verge of poverty, they have to make rational financial decisions whether or not they can drive to see mom for that 400 mile round-trip. todd: tim stewart knows the rules of the oil and gas industry and the rules of being a husband, appreciate your time this morning. the wife is always right. >> vice president harris overseeing one of the biggest immigration disasters we've seen in the southern border in decades but that isn't her fault. >> can't just flip a switch and make it better. we inherited an immigration system that was deeply broken. carley: lara trump sounds off next.

2:57 am
be in a much different position right now. but everyone knows that joe biden and kamala harris ran on an open borders policy. remember every single one of the democrats on stage during the primaries raising their hands for free healthcare for illegal immigrants? they all but invited people, from all around the world that wanted to come here illegally to come now under this administration. we are now paying reparations of up to $450,000 per person to illegal immigrants. it is absolutely preposterous that this has anything to do with donald trump. if they wanted to fix it, and kamala harris, i will give you some advice, the switch you need to flip is to go back to the trump era policies. those were actually working. so no one buys this. i don't know who gave her the advice to use this as her, you know, tactic to get out of this question, but probably the wrong person to blame when donald trump had one of the most secure
2:58 am
