issues, they are worried about inflation, they are worried about crime, they're worried what's coming across the border, they do not care about the jibber jabber going on on twitter, that is the what the white house and vice president's officer focusing on. >> the vice president is genuinely that progressive but president biden ran as a moderate, more moderate than her, these two people shouldn't get along. kamala harris has the most progressive center record, more progressive than bernie sanders two years ago and she believed the woman who accused him of sexual assault and then suggested he was racist on the debate platform and she is the person that he picks as vice president of all people? bottom line this rift between them, you can't deny that it happened, people are on record saying this is true.

investigation into the situation and no factual coverage call the events strange. in washington lawmakers are removing call to boycott the 2022 intralipid games in beijing over the incident. >> by going to beijing what you are doing is enriching all of these chinese communist party companies. your sending a signal to the world that it is okay to participate with china in some ways but not in others. >> business people and athletes alike have had trouble when speaking out in china. last year a business executive, the cofounder of ali baba disappeared after criticizing the government. >> reporter: thank you. todd: 15 after they are. a firsthand account of the horan waukesha. we will speak to a father who witnessed the plow through the parade and his daughter's marching band.

>> a waukesha father witnessing the deadly parade tragedy firsthand, the chaos unfolding as his daughter played in a marching band at the annual christmas parade this weekend. >> james touchstone joins us with his story and when you saw this unfolding you chased after the suspect's car to try to stop it what did you see and what was going through your mind is always was playing out? >> it was crazy. we saw the vehicle turned sharply around the vehicle behind the marching band and he had 30, 35 yards to stop and just accelerated through the kids. it was absolutely crazy. so i went through my mind, i am a combat veteran, serve two tours, stop the enemy because you could tell this person driving the vehicle had absolutely no desire to stop or
slow down through the parade route and once i realized he was going too fast i started to first data and triage and most of the people around me were standing frozen in absolute shock and horror. todd: were you able to keep eyes on your daughter during all this? >> my daughter was on the side, opposite side from where he was so i sped past her and knew she was safe behind me as i saw the truck go down the street so i was all right with that and then i found her maybe 15 minutes later after the paramedics got on scene to help the kid that i was rendering first-aid to. >> we learned a lot about the suspect, most notably that he is a career criminal and that he has an extensive rap sheet
currently 50 pages long and allegedly ran over the mother of his child, committing a similar crime, he was let out on just $1,000 bail friday only to allegedly commit this crime that you saw unfold before you. when you learn these details of his, more history what did you think? >> i was sad and disappointed for the state of things in our country. we heard that his bail was reduced three different times by 3 different judges to very low amounts. there is no way he should ever have been out on the street. it was over and over and over that he kept getting let go and able to repeat lots of crimes, not only this one.
>> that's the general reaction from most people in the country but i said to take it to the next level. as a father whose daughter was in this incident, who could have been one of those hit, very close to what happened, how absolutely infuriating is that to you? >> white-hot rage and anger. there is no other way to describe it, filled with white-hot rage and anger. my first instinct as a combat soldier was to charge the vehicle. i am a concealed carry person but i only had to go 15 yards in a sprint to get a clear shot and at the time it took me to go 15 yards he was already 45, 50 yards down the road or out of
range and how intent he was on not stopping. >> that's why police yesterday said he intentionally drove through this crowd. what is it like living in waukesha? how are residents doing in the aftermath of this horrific event? >> it is very somber. we've been doing this, i've been living here for 21 years going to the parade every year that i was able to and normally it is a festive, joyful time and it is very somber now. almost all the churches in the area, prayer vigils for people i just getting together and it -- absolutely gets a lot of people, how short your life is and you can't get complacent and the good side of it is people are refocusing on their relationships and making sure people that they love that you
constantly tell them and that they know that. >> we are thankful that your daughter is safe and sound and for your time this morning telling us about your experience, be safe, the best holiday season you can have under the circumstances. >> thank you for coming on with us this morning, appreciate it. the time is 24 after the hour. america's healthcare workers were hailed as heroes at the height of the pandemic, then many lost their jobs due to vaccine mandates and now this. >> our nation must invest in a healthcare workforce that looks like america and provide access to equitable health care for all americans. >> i will take whoever wants to save my life i don't get the color. another group of americans constantly criticized by democrats especially liberal new york city where half of all officers say they wish they had
todd: closing arguments in the ahmad aubery case. the supreme commander of the militia saying serious trouble because the wrath of karma is coming on america, not taking it no more, the group caring new black panther flags with the deadly corpse inside with names george floyd and breonna taylor, the soft on crime da larry krasner, shooter the kill the woman and her unborn child, covington was loading gifts from her baby shower when she was shot several times in the head and the belly. police believe she was planned target the shooting. no arrests have been made that they are questioning a suspect in the case.
they advocate fewer gun prosecutions was critics say led to an increasing crime. carley: an internal poll paints an alarming picture of police morale finding more than half of officers regret joining the force which are to react is john mccarty. wasn't long ago being a police officer, being an nypd officer was the coolest profession out there and now we are seeing 56% of officers wish they never joined. what happened? >> the results of this survey should be concerning to all citizens. it highlights the failures of leftist policies. the nypd is made of the most diverse members of the community in new york city in the whole world and these are the men and women who decided to take a profession, go out into the pray, deal with situations and people who will turn the average citizen into a nightmare, their
morale is getting to the point that they are going to walk away, the survey should be truly eye-opening for all members of society. carley: those progressive policies, an absolute tragedy the people who put on that uniform and are willing to risk their life every single day to save somebody else's somehow been perceived to be the bad guy and part of the study that is really alarming shows 80% of officers, detectives, sergeants, and captains say they fear aggressively fighting crime because of threats of criminal liability. if officers are afraid to do their job what does that mean for residents, in particular residents living in high crime areas? >> i don't agree with that. i don't believe they are afraid to do their job. they are not allowed to do their job. i grew up in a city of crime.
i watched the broken windows, i watched police transform it into the tourist capital of the world, the safest city in the world and we went away from that under these progressive policies and we are seeing the deterioration not only in high crime but the quality-of-life is eroded in the city and it will go further. these are the professionals, it is going to get worse. it's not a question of if but when. carley: a new mayor will come into office in new york city, former police officer, could he change things for officers and make things better for the city? >> if he brings back the quality-of-life, brings back anti-crime and pushes the das to keep these people in jail
absolutely 100%. he was around at the time we did that again so we know what needs to be done, it just has to be done. >> we were talking about these progressive policies that make it impossible to be a police officer in cities across the country and this horrific crime took place in waukesha, wisconsin sunday, now we are learning the suspect is a career criminal with a massive rap sheet and he was released on $1,000 bail friday and the da admits he should still be behind bars, take a look at these headlines, in june a headline from the new york post is homeless man with 40 prior arrests busted for slugging an asian woman and this happened in new york city was a man was released after allegedly attacking a police officer displayed a past attempted murder charge of an officer. the system is broken, how do we fix it?
>> truly, the das and the judges, there need to be consequences for action. i don't understand, i don't know who is benefiting from these policies. the kernels themselves, i don't think they are being met on the right path. they are being led astray and the whole population is being made to be unsafe. >> when you care more about the criminals and the people they affect something is wrong, you are one of the good guys, thank you for joining us this morning, 35 after the hour, governor ron desantis proved vaccine mandates aren't always the answer, disney agreed with him but the white house doesn't and jen psaki is scolding him for doing what is best for florida. >> democrats retiring in droves is republicans recollection wins, that includes our next
public for two weeks, the democrat even skipping the climate summit in scotland saying he decided to take his kids trick or treating instead. white house press secretary jen psaki criticizing florida governor ron desantis after disney world decided to halt its vaccine mandate for employees. >> obviously the governor there has consistently taken steps to take steps backward as it relates to fighting the pandemic, not forward. >> psaki's comments come days after desantis sign several bills protecting employees from vaccine mandates, disney says 90% of florida employees are fully vaccinated. all those who have not will have to wear masks and practice social distancing. >> republican momentum keeps building as gop candidate for mayor in deep blue columbia, south carolina defeat is obama backed opponent, joining me now is the mayor elect, congratulations on your win. how did you win? >> thank you.
back to the basics, people here really were focused on important things, roads, high taxes, crime, we went straight to the message, straight to the people and stuck with it, not some 22,000 doors with our team and that is what people were talking about they weren't, the national politics. they were worried about everything that affected their lives, businesses and families. todd: this was, is big-time biden country but you won by 4% over your obama backed opponent. to reiterate biden won this in 2020 by 38.3% of the vote. was this a rejection of the biden presidency by many people who voted for him?
>> i think people are concerned about where they are today, their lives and businesses and voted with their pocketbooks. they resonated with the message, high taxes, fuel prices going up, grocery store supply chains, all of these affect these businesses. on the national level people are worried about the basics and we were able to raise 98% of our money locally. we were not endorsed by any local officials and we went straight to the people and that is go to the people, they want to be heard. todd: bigger picture there are a lot and i say a lot of democrats retiring at the end of their term in 2022, 17 in all. there is a snapshot of them on your screen. in light of that, in light of your win, other shocking gop victories how excited should republicans be as we head into the midterms?
>> they should be excited but also realize, to have folks and we were able to get our base which was republicans but also bring in democrats and independents who are concerned about the future. we need to make sure when we reach out we reach out to everybody. >> to that end you focus on the issues when you spoke to the voters, this was a very issue based election you won because of it. do you expect democrats to reverse course on the policies that got them unelected and got you elected and similar results over the last couple weeks? >> if they were smart they would be but i'm not sure where they are. i think this is a lesson for everybody, listening to the people who put us in office is the most important thing, the only thing we should be focused on. todd: i will reiterate it until i'm blue in the face, you need
to ignore the blue check the gate on twitter, they represent a small percentage of the country. it is people like you in your town of columbia, south carolina the real americans and they tell you what you want and you listened. we wish you the best of luck. love your city, been there a few times, it is beautiful, has good food, hope to see you again. >> come back any time. >> time now 34 after the other, aoc in a house democrats ready to stage a revolt urging senate to ignore the parliamentarian controversial bill into the biden spending bill. >> thanksgiving is down is inflation put the squeeze on americans wallets. next we talked with generous restaurant owner helping those in need even though he's also feeling the pain of rising prices.
