3:01 am
>> state department getting brutally mocked for promoting the secretary of state's spotify play list it? >> makes you nervous because they are not just doing a bad job, they keep doing these things that are not serious at all. >> first and goal, quick throw, touchdown, steelers. ben roethlisberger gets his goodbye hynes field. ♪ sing a song ♪ sing a song ♪ >> brian: that is jacksonville, florida. a wonderful city home of the future super bowl champion jacksonville jaguars in about 20 years they will more than likely somehow get close to the super bowl. they have won three times in two years. you don't have to win all the time. and i think that's pretty clear. >> we have pleased to be here in studio.
3:02 am
ainsley, will, i'm glad you are going to be with me. ainsley, we have so much catching up to do. will, i have been watching you on television, i feel like we have been talking although you don't hear my questions. ainsley, how are you? >> ainsley: i'm doing great. i had a wonderful vacation. it was great to be down in the state of florida that's open now and just surrounded by people who watch fox all the time. everyone came up to you was at dinners and out by the pool. they were so gracious and so lovely. i just love that state. it was wonderful. >> brian: including aoc, right? she was there. >> ainsley: i saw that she was down in miami. i wasn't down if a far south. it's funny, because i was watching desantis talk about that. he said aoc will bash us, lock down our states yet he said half a dozen governors and different congresswomen and men are coming down to florida for their vacation. will, did you a great job, happy new year, i hope you had a wonderful christmas with your boys. >> will: thank you, i did. i did have a wonderful christmas. i had a grate new year. i'm hoping you saw some of that.
3:03 am
>> ainsley: i did. >> will: there has been a lot of controversy around the fox environment. the fans as you point out love the show, love the network, love our relationship and immediately after that new year's special there was a lot of controversy there was some sense that pete had won the line dancing competition. as the moment have gone on people realize pete was flashy but i was smooth. >> ainsley: i love the outfit. >> will: important to set that record state this morning i believe, you know, fair and balanced. >> brian: will, a lot of people said he can dance is he going to be good on television. we all knew you came here with mostly a dance background who adapted to this format. able to go back to your roots on new year's eve. it was certainly something special. definitely worth the price of admission. >> will: a lot of people say, look, will is, you know, trying to follow the path of brian kilmeade or will is trying to follow the path of tucker
3:04 am
carlson. i wrote it down. i did see that tucker, for example, did "dancing with the stars." >> ainsley: that's true. >> will: plan is unfolding. exactly as i had intended. >> ainsley: what's on your list under brian's name? >> brian: ainsley, let him answer, that's great question. will, what's on your list? >> will: you thought i would stumble with this and i enjoy this if you take a step back and say how was will machiavellian style organized his entire career he looked at brian kilmeade incredibly invested in sports, became a morning show guy and say wow, will, really idolizes brian kilmeade. >> brian: wow, let's go to break. i just hit my pete. let's talk meat because it's a natural transition because joe biden few days off will danced, ainsley vacationed and joe biden thought about meat. he said to himself there is inflation and then there is prices, and then there is meat. horrible meat people are jacking up prices i have friends who
3:05 am
tell me meat is expensive. so it's a problem when 80%, he says, of four companies control 80% of the meat market. so, therefore, is he going to attack meat like rocky did in 1976 in rockie 1. here is joe talking meat. >> i have said it before and i will say it again, capitalism without competition isn't capitollism, it's exploitation. that's what we are seeing in meat and poultry those industries now, maul, independent farmers and ranchers are being driven out of business, sometimes businesses that have been around for generations. >> ainsley: he said there were four chicken companies, four beef companies, four pork companies that monopolized the industry and they are determining the price and so all these small businesses, all these ranchers are going out of business because these big companies are taking over. he failed to mention the fact that truck drivers are hard to find, gas prices, deville fuel
3:06 am
is through the roof right now. labor costs are increasing because of the labor shortage. gas prices through the roof. cost of fertilization, brian and will, is up as well. these farmers are not making as much money as they used to 10 years ago. if you ask any of them they will tell you that they are having to tack on the extra costs to you, the buyer, because they are paying more and not making as much money. he fails to blame himself and his policies and shutting down the pipelines and causing energy prices to go up and gas prices to go up and worker shortage because he is paying people to stay home. he fails to mention that he blames it on the ranchers and farmers barely making any money. >> will: yeah. he points out something, by the way, which you start with the truth and you build upon that because beef prices are rising incredible outpacing. beef is up almost 21%. pork up 17%. chicken up 9%. as you pointed out, ainsley, it's what he doesn't talk about.
3:07 am
what he fails to mention coffee is up 7%. of course we know oil and gas is up incredibly as well that would seem to suggest there is something beyond antitrust needed to attack inflation. hey, look, on "fox & friends" we have interviewed small ranchers and farmers who have pointed out that there is a constriction in the supply chain in meat processing. and it has allowed extraordinary power to the meat processors, let's be clear, biden isn't focused on that because it's going to help solve inflation. is he focused on that because it's a distraction and a place to shift the blame away from an economic inflation at large throughout our society. and if you want to know, if you want an illustration of just how disingenuous this entire thing is, take look how he described as brian alluded to, how he found out about beef price prices, watch. >> in my kitchen yesterday and there is a sunroom off the kitchen, and my wife was there with her sister and a good
3:08 am
friend named mary ann and she was saying do you realize it's over $5 for a pound of hamburger meat? $5? well, this is partly, you know, a pound of beef today coors 5 bucks compared to less than 4 bucks before the pandemic. >> brian: exactly. so go to your sunroom, and ask your wife to bring over a friend and find out what's bothering them and then make it a policy. what could possibly be wrong with can that. unbelievable he used that as an example. my sense is they didn't load the prompter with that you guys would know better. larry summers said something, as you know treasury secretary for barack obama. he said the emerging claim that antitrust can combat inflation because et wants to give grants to small meat producers reflects science denial, sarcasm. many areas where differ. antitrust as anti-inflation strategy is not one of them. that's a guy on your team. somebody else who does meat for
3:09 am
a living spatula freda joined "fox & friends first" earlier and said here in the reality watch. >> what the president wants to do create competition and farmers, growers get more money for every dollar spent, then there needs to be more demand for domestic products still a gallon higher on average than 2019. labor is a major problem. just throwing money at a problem is not going to solve it. >> ainsley: that's coming from someone in the meat industry. joe biden can sit in capitol hill or sit in the white house or sit in his sunroom and talk to people about prices going up. that's coming from the meat industry. the reason is gas prices are up. labor costs are up. nobody wants to work. you talk to any business person, they are having a hard time
3:10 am
finding workers. joe biden doesn't even know what let's go brandon means and finding out on sunday that the meat industry is experiencing higher prices. he probably doesn't do his grocery shopping like we all do. we all went to the grocery store over the holiday. prices are through the roof. i read an article over the weekend that wood right now, people are buying more firewood heat homes with fires because it's so expensive. secretary blinken putting out play list on spotify meanwhile we have foreign policy issues that he needs to be focused on, and we are going to talk about that coming up. will? >> will: yeah. i don't know what was in the prompter. i don't know if he was trying to appear folksy by telling the story of his neighbor, but is he clearly, to your point, ainsley, out of touch. he is not going to solve inflation by attacking big meat. big meat just the latest villain in the story of the biden
3:11 am
administration. >> ainsley: villain, right. >> will: i don't think it's replacing the unvaxxed but going to focus on big meat the bad guy. governor desantis is demanding release -- covid crisis. not stopping them from promoting the play list that ainsley justs with referenced. packed with olivo rodrigo and taylor swift. antony blinken's spotify coming up people everywhere living with type 2 diabetes are waking up to what's possible... with rybelsus®. the majority of people taking rybelsus® lowered their blood sugar and reached an a1c of less than 7.

3:16 am
snrot. >> will: welcome back to "fox & friends" where we begin your headlines with a fox news alert. u.s. troops in the middle east are coming under attack overnight. air defense forces striking down two drones packed with explosives targeting iraqi base housing american forces west of baghdad. second attack of its kind in 24 hours as iran and its allies mark the two year anniversary of the assassination of general qasem soleimani and then today the chicago teachers union is set to hold a vote on return to remote learning as the mayor says children need to be in the classroom. the union is gearing up to walk out tomorrow over covid-19 safety concerns. several teachers unions across the country, including connecticut and massachusetts are also demanding a halt to in person learn and on monday night football, the pittsburgh steelers keep their slim play off hopes alive a 26-14 win over
3:17 am
the cleveland browns. ben roethlisberger throwing a touchdown in what could be his final home game as a steeler. pittsburgh still needs a win, a colts loss, and for the raiders not to tie the chargers in next week's game to qualify for the post season. so you are telling me there's a chance those are your headlines. >> brian: quick question eli manning,age ben roethlisberger. >> will: in order ben roethlisberger 1, philip rivers 2. eli manning 3. >> brian: interesting. because the giants had rivers and flipped him for eli. >> we have interesting. i will talk about that with ainsley in depth a little bit later. >> ainsley: i was watching that jets game. >> will: i will be tuning in for that segment. >> ainsley: watching the jets game texting with joel the stage manager as we know he wear as green sweatshirt every day and a
3:18 am
hat. he says don't jinx this ainsley and then you saw the end of the game. >> brian: you did. so you blew the game? >> ainsley: i blew the game. sorry, jets fans. >> brian: we have a shot to joel, joel left the game exactly like antonio brown he threw it and went outside in 23-degree weather. >> will: i'm proud of joel. joel, when joel wants to walk off the set because of brian's behavior i hope he takes off his jersey and throws it at the camera and leaves like antonio brown. >> brian: that is the way we all should leave. just like that, they won't fire joel they will take it under consultation. antonio brown is not fired now. >> will: weird. >> ainsley: i'm keeping my shirt on. >> brian: thank you for a change. in just two hours from now, president biden will speak on the omicron spread assets a new omicron record with over 1 million more cases. mark meredith joins from washington with more. >> brian, the president says the
3:19 am
president is going to be updating the country on response to the pandemic. urged people to get vaccinated. the administration certainly under pressure to ramp up testing with rapid tests selling out at drug stores. scale back on having employees return to work. ron desantis a potential 2024 challenger of president biden is also accusing the administration of refusing to disperse additional monoclonal antibody treatment. the governor says the administration is holding back from his state and others. >> we saved thousands of lives by providing that treatment. so that should have been replicated in all these other states. instead what biden and his cronies have done seized control of all the monoclonal antibodies. >> the department of health and human service was says the government has and will continue to supply florida with therapeutics that can help improve patient outcome reduce stress on outcome facilities and save lives.
3:20 am
we will watch that one. on monday fda authorized booster shots kids ages 12 to 15. recommending doses be taken five months after getting second shot. some medical experts are criticizing the fda's criticism here arguing that they are rushing this approval process some doctors arguing that vac rack vaccines that are on the market are offering enough protection. back to you guys. >> ainsley: we have had monoclonals for more than a year. where is operation warp speed on this. calling operation snail speed. they should be ready these states should be getting what they need. ron desantis says he wants 40,000 monoclonal infusions per week. that's what he is requesting. they are getting some but not enough. is he asking for two to three times it amount. dr. oz says pills can't find them. monoclonals are hard to find we
3:21 am
talked about. home testing not readily available. used to be able to get one when everyone went ahead for christmas and new year's. everyone started getting omicron. then you had to get the home test. then schools said you have to have a pcr test and home test also work in many of the districts if you can find them. the problem is you go to all these drug stores and they say we are out of tests. they have signs on the front doors, in order to get a test you have to wait in line some places five hours. there is a testing center outside of my building. and the line was wrapped all the way around the building because kids need tests to get back to school. people can't find what they need. and whatever happened to if you need them, can you get them. this is america. will? >> will: yeah, ainsley, so you are pointing out two categories that have been sacrificed at the altar of one singular topic and is that true vaccine. not only are you not allowed to talk about therapeutics, they have been completely vilified the past year and a half. we have no interest in helping sick people.
3:22 am
we villainize sick people certainly if they're not vaccinated. that's the topic when it comes tomono colonial antibodies. fallen at the vaccine. not allowed to talk about therapeutics. the testing you brought up. right now it's my belief, ainsley we are suffering from a pandemic of positive tests. i don't think we need more tests. i think we have enough tests. we are testing asymptomatic, healthy people, sacrificing businesses. people and our economy are falling like flies not to being sick but to being suffering from a positive test. and do you know what's weird about this, ainsley? just an observation to tie this back into football, brian. you know, apparently, the demand for tests outpaced supply. that's what i'm to understand because we don't have enough on the market. why when i'm watching sunday night football was there an advertisement between mike tarik co-and chris collins worth for abbott test. they were sponsoring sunday night football.
3:23 am
and now they have big marketing budget. you would think that would be to increasing supply. we are investing in testing and testing asymptomatic people and what we are suffering from is not a pandemic of sickness right now. we are suffering from a pandemic of positive tests. >> brian: no question. let me just run through that there is nothing you said that was inaccurate and ainsley, i hear your frustration when it comes to these tests and because people have to get on a plane international need a test. go back to school need a test. go back to college need a booster. making everyone wait online because you don't have the facilities to handle it best thing to ever handle is the omicron. mild symptoms gives you antibodies. armed up for the next variant that comes through which is going to be lighter. why don't they admit that number two the vaccines don't block the disease. block some of the symptoms. no evidence it's less likely we are going to spread it if we have it. so there is no idea why we are
3:24 am
firing everyone with mandate because of your mandates because they don't do what you want to do. creating more tension in this country. getting our military. getting our healthcare workers. getting our cops. getting our firefighters. soon-to-be corrections. it's nuts what is happening right now. then we find out something we knew all along cloth masks don't work. we find out that yesterday from scott gottlieb, heard all around the world. anthony fauci, of course, disagrees, big difference. so we have these kids sitting there like mummies in their second grade classroom wearing something that's doing absolutely no good and if the teachers had their own way they wouldn't be in the classrooms at all. i digress. move on and talk about something equally as agonizing. we have so many challenges overseas. iran tried to attack us twice within 24 hours. thankfully the iraqi air defense able to knock down a few drones. ongoing crisis in russia is something i have rarely seen in 25 years. the constant stress of china and the fact that our military is
3:25 am
being gutted because of the ridiculous mandate that are now covid riddled secretary of defense has listen to the president and put on his military. and then where is ourselves? he, who has a band which he called wonk rock has released his play list on spotify. your witness, ainsley. >> ainsley: yeah, so, state department has tweeted 8 times over the last month promoting this i don't know why he is doing this. is he trying to connect to the younger generation? but we have got so much going on as far as serious foreign policy decisions. and you are right, brian, i hear you. russia precinct to invade ukraine. working with china and iran. the mullahs in iran talking about killing president trump. talking about killing mike pompeo. you have china who continues to invade taiwan's airspace. afghanistan? how many of our troops are still behind enemy lines or i should say our allies. people who helped us other there and we just say you're on your
3:26 am
own. and they are focused on spotify and a play list and taylor swift. this is the tweet from steve scalise that i think you will find interesting. he said i'm sure the americans still stranded in afghanistan will appreciate having this play list to listen to as they are forced to live under taliban rule. this is how unserious this administration is. they are so out of touch as we were saying before. they shouldn't be promoting this when we have so many things going on. and how do you think our military reacts to this? you go to virginia beach. you ask them if they think it's okay for the secretary of state to be promoting spotify 8 times over the last month when our troops or people were stranded in afghanistan. will? >> will: fundamentally unserious. fundamentally, ainsley. mollie hemingway was on "fox news primetime" last night and that's her diagnosis and indictment. watch. >> afghanistan was just a horrible thing that the entire country feels dishonor over. and weakness like the weakness that the biden administration
3:27 am
has kind of presented on a platter can be provocative. you might remember that putin was not invading countries during the trump era. he took advantage of, you know, neocon foreign policy, basically, to do his previous incursions, whether that was under obama or now he is threatening with biden. he also at the tail end of the george w. bush presidency tried that, too. we have really serious issues. and the state department keeps pushing out this spotify list it just makes you nerve us have because they are not just doing a bad job, they keep doing these things that are not serious at all. >> will: yeah, and trying too hard. you know, i could give you a lot of nouns to describe a guy that tries too hard. but doesn't pay attention to what's actually important in life. now that's what we are run by. people that are try hards while ignoring substance. it's not just the publishing 8 times the spotify list. tony blinken is 59.
3:28 am
a band brian said wonk rock. i didn't know it was called wonk rock. look, i don't know, man, at some point you stop keeping up. are you really listening to olivia rodrigo or are you trying too hard, tony. are you listening to taylor swift or are you trying too hard. i pretty much listen to the same stuff that i was listening to a decade ago. so i'm having a hard time believing this 59-year-old is like oh the olivia rodrigo song is out. >> brian: music brings people together. transcends borders. everything else might divide us. one of the reasons they put out the play list to bring people together. this is the man that was in the hamptons because he guaranteed us afghanistan was not going to fall a at any time soon or over the weekend. it fell quicker than two days. it fell in one day. he was in the hamptons making phone calls to a president of afghanistan who had already left
3:29 am
the country. that's how embarrassing he is. that's why john mccain was so against his nomination during the obama years and now we are stuck with him as secretary of state. an unserious guy with multiple crises on his hands. let's move ahead. we have two hours and two minutes to fill. here is what is straight ahead. now it's official 2022 the countdown to the midterm election is underway. we have a former democratic mayor self-made success story warning his party is about to get wiped out unless they listen to him. that story next. ♪ to support a strong immune system your body needs a routine. centrum helps your immune defenses every day, with vitamin c, d and zinc* season after season.

3:33 am
>> brian: welcome back, i have a few headlines for you and then ainsley is could youing up. the verdict is in for the theranos founder found guilty of four of the 11 counts against her. misleading investors and patients about the capabilities of her blood testing technology. she was found guilty of one count of conspiracy. thee counts of fraud, carrying a maximum penalty of 20 years per charge. she is expected to appeal the verdict. a federal judge grants a temporary injunction for 35 active duty knave navy seals. this is great news seeking a religious exemption from covid-19's vaccine mandate.
3:34 am
the groups one of many suing the president in response to those mandates thousands of servicemen and women have applied to religious exemptions but those requests have gone unanswered. the marine corps has already kicked out over 200 marines for refusing the vaccine that is unacceptable. reportedly offering infusing equity into course material. the free beacon. the university will offer $1,500 stippen when they recurriculum and another 1500 when they actually teach it memphis will only pick 15 to 20 professors for the program which will begin sadly in the upcoming spring semester. i will gracely toss that over to ainsley. >> ainsley: surprising that's happening in memphis. if democrats want to stand a chance in 2022 they need to take a page from new york city mayor eric adams book according to the next guest laying out a litmus test for candidates who want to
3:35 am
avoid a 2022 wipe out. here is now former miami mayor lavigne. good morning, mayor. >> good morning. >> ainsley: you are a self-made success story. you ran a story like some democrats are losing. why do you say the democratic party needs to take a page out of his book. >> what's going on right now, ainsley, eric adams came out he ran a very progressive primary ran as a radical centrist. i love that tempt he said listen i'm pro-police and pro-business and pro-people but i'm not going to live in a city that's running wild and he won. he won the primary and now he is moving forward. i think he serves as a model for democrats across the country. this year looks very challenging. so my op-ed basically laid out kind of like a framework i believe will help democrats get to the promise land. and we need a healthy democratic
3:36 am
party and this is a chance for them to have great success. >> ainsley: okay. i read your op-ed. when i read the questions you say democrats unequivocally need to answer yes to. who here are the five questions. they need to say yes to funding the police. yes to securing our borders. only u.s. citizens should vote. yes that parents should participate in school curriculum and be against crt and yes disavow socialism and disavow capitalism. why are you still a democrat if you want to say yes to all of those? >> absolutely not. i think the incompassionist capitalist is a great road to go on it has nothing to do with being republican or democrat. it's about selling a product and knowing your customer. think about this, unfortunately we don't want the democratic party to go the way of blockbuster video. those who can say you can only buy 8 track tapes. we know what happened to blockbuster. the democrats need to be sell a product that appeals to the center of the party. now, are there republicans that want to find a home in the democratic party? that's fantastic. we need to get back to really
3:37 am
truly being in the middle of the road for all americans in order to win. now, think of this, ainsley. progressives can win districts. but centrists win states and in order to become president, or to win statewide, you need to win a state. i agree with you. that's why what are you going to do about aoc. >> i think what's going on is this eric adams even during the primary he was able to confront the socialist wing of the party. is he not saying i don't believe in some of your ideas, but what he is saying is that's not the direction that we are going to go in. listen, everyone has great ideas, but the reality is we need to be able to get to the middle and i think that eric adams has done that i think the proof will be in the pudding as he moves forward. >> and being a mayor, as you have seen previously and i wrote in my op-ed, bill de blasio the greatest gift florida has ever had. i used to say he needs to run for a third term because it's so fantastic for our state. all the american of people coming here.
3:38 am
eric adams is the first thing for florida because he's going to turn new york around. >> ainsley: i hope you are right. we are waiting. just a few days. in we'll see. thank you so much, mayor, great to see you. >> thank you. >> ainsley: you are welcome. 37 minutes after the hour. coming up next, the chicago's teachers union prepares to vote on remote learning despite saying students need to be in class. dad of three is going to join us next with his message for the teachers. is.

providing 300 test sights and providing kn 95, kn 94 masks to all students and staff and principals have the authority to move students remote immediately if a covid case is reported. it's a long list possibly, is impossible to ultimately accomplish. really quickly, ryan, i believe you have three kids, two in chicago public schools. what do you do. >> correct. >> >> will: do you keep them in chicago public schools. >> we do. we believe in this city. we applaud the mayor and ceo of the school district for standing up. they cannot capitulate to constant demands from a teachers unions who by the way under contracted five years no strike clause but, will, they will call this a remote learning opportunity. they will not call this a waiver stoppage. but that's what this is. that is harmful to the students of this city and, again, i encourage all patience to stand up and speak their voices. >> it will be interesting, it is

3:47 am
rain along the coast of the west as well as mountain snow we are all clear in the mid-atlantic. the cold air is going to settle in behind the next clipper system across the midwest and great lakes. bring snow cover to some of these areas over a foot certainly for parts of the up of michigan and parts of the upper midwest. we will continue to monitor that next storm system and then the cold air pours in southward and that is going to set the table, if you will, for more snow this week for some of these areas that don't typically see a lot of snow like perhaps tennessee and kentucky and the mid-atlantic and the northeast. so stay tuned, will, we will certainly fine tune the forecast. and by the way fox if you want your latest weather forecast. back to you. >> will: beginning to look perhaps a little like christmas right after christmas for much of the country there. >> janice: that's correct. >> will: all right, janice,

4:04 am
have remote learning because of some of these districts are not keeping up with making sure our kids and our teachers are safe. you have got the chicago teachers union. today they are are going to voted. the house of delegates is going to votes to decide whether or not they want their members to work remotely. they will probably vote yes on that. then, on wednesday, they are going to take an electronic vote of all of the members of the teachers union. if both of those approve, they will be working remotely without the public schools permission and if you talk to the mayor of lori lightfoot, she is at odds with these teachers unions sayinged that the schools are safe and we need keep our kids in school. >> will: yeah, this is stunning. i mean, i cannot believe, ainsley, that this is where we are two years into this pandemic. brian said this earlier. something that i wholeheartedly agree with. the year whelming odds at this point is that omicron is not our
4:05 am
path into the pandemic but our path out of the pandemic. omicron is pandemic. some quarters vaccine. to say have teachers union to say we need to put our kids in remote learning again because of omicron shows you who they serve. this is not our students. look at their demands. this is what the chicago teachers union is asking for. all staff and students provide negative results from pcr tests within 48 hours before returning to school. they want 300 testing sites at cps location. they will want the school to provide kn 95. n 95 masks to all staff and students. they want to give principals authority to remove classes remote if a single case of covid is reported. i will say, this brian, i think if you took a survey, i truly believe this the last couple of
4:06 am
decades and what the biggest impediment to the loss of learning, to our children becoming actually educated, and we're talking about not just decades but generations now, the biggest impediment to our children is the existence of teachers unions, from fighting charter schools vouchers to fighting in person learning, teachers unions are in the way of our children's growth. >> brian: i want to make it clear, too, that i met so many teachers and, ainsley, your sister is a teacher and your mom was a teacher, and i met so 78 teachers, i went to 18 cities over the last two months some people say i know fox doesn't like teachers. i said no, no. you got it all wrong. fox is in awe of the teachers. the unions in control forced to join in order to get a job, that's the issue. but guess what it's changed? do you know what it used to be? it used to be us on the couch. used to be almost every republican political leader, almost everyone saying go get the kids back in school. and the democrats get in charge and it's like no, no, we need money to get schools ready and six feet apart. and then we need plexiglass.
4:07 am
and now all of a sudden things have changed. if you see the new mayor of new york city. see lori lightfoot of chicago, if you see what is happening in los angeles. everywhere -- in massachusetts the moderate governor, a republican governor, who has really gone liberal on so many different causes is now pushing back all on the same page saying kids need to be in school. and guess the only people stand notice way are teachers unions. the kids need to be in school the parents need to be in schools. the mayors saying get into school. the governor is saying get into school. the president is saying get in school. dr. fauci said get in school. they are the only thing stopping. these kids are going to have their learning curve forever curtailed unless something happens quickly. and this should be our man from a from here on in. not get caught up in the daily nuances what doctor is in or out. it's called live with it go to work. live with it. get on a train, get on a bus, get on a plane, how do we live with it? we can no longer hide from it that's the 10 days to 5 day
4:08 am
rule. now, listen, in the real world, there is parents that have to deal with remote learning until they can get control of their kids' education. here is diana ham bring hall a cbs school counselor she is calling for a return to remote learning listen to her reasoning. >> something has got to give we are not here taking time out of our break because we want to be here. we are here because we care about what happens to our colleagues again, i ask mayor lightfoot and her cps team which is enough enough? when will you finally join us to work together for the safety of us all? >> ainsley: if you ask any teacher if they got into it not for the money they did it because they want to help our children and they want to teach our kids and provide a better
4:09 am
country going forward for the next generation. and when you look at these children and you know that these 5-year-olds, these 6-year-olds going to kindergarten and first grade and learning to read. and they are not in the classroom, and they're learning remotely, many of their parents aren't home because they have to go to work to put food on the table. they are falling behind. >> brian: that's the key. >> ainsley: talk to any teacher they will say the kids are behind. it's prolonging. >> will: yes. >> ainsley: their education. we have all felt it. we are all parents. i have a little one and have until 6 years old, 8 years old when their brains are still elastic and learning so much. 80% of what they learn happens at this age, it scares you as pirnt. you are not equipped to teach them. hayden is learning sight words to learn to read. she needs to learn lower case letters. where is she going to learn that? i'm trying at home but i'm not a teacher. we are trying the best i can. everyone is falling behind. she goes to a great school. what about a school that doesn't
4:10 am
have the capacity to keep up with all the kids or is in a low income area. and these teachers are saying there is lingering impact on the students. learning loss, even mayor lightfoot said that, the learning loss was profound in chicago. lincoln way, the families there in new lennox a suburb of chicago. they found out on monday that they were going to be remote for the rest of the week. so then parents are scrambling, what do we do? we don't have child care. we have got to go back to work. brian, had you an excellent interview with the chicago parent, his name is ryan griffin, he is slamming these unions for pushing to keep his kids at home. how many kids does he have. >> brian: brian i don't know. good morning i did the interview. walls it you, will? >> ainsley: will, did you it, three people, three kids? >> will: it's okay. it's a hard bar to live up to brian's presence on this show and all the things he does. >> brian: you are so hurt, will. i can't believe how hurt he is. >> will: three kids, two of them in chicago public schools. and yes, ainsley, he did slam the teachers union.
4:11 am
listen. >> from every level of the public health experts out there, they say in person school is safe and should be prioritized. but, will, that's never good enough for the chicago teachers union. they will never pass up an opportunity to exert their leverage and they will get power plays they continue to come up with a long list of demands relating to public health issues, testing, vaccinations, they want the school district to become a health clinic. they will call this a remote learning opportunity. they will not call this a waiver stoppage. but that's what this is and that is harmful to the students of this city. >> will: yeah. i want to underline something that brian said. this isn't an attack on teachers. it's pointing out the problem is the teachers union. i think you are right, ainsley. i know you are right thatter teacher out there got into this to help children. so ask ourselves, do these policies help or hurt children?
4:12 am
we know the toll at this point. we know the rising case of depression. we know the rates of suicide. we know social isolation and, of course, the loss of learning that will never be recuperated. i have two sons who were in a new york city public school for most of their lives until very recently. they went on remote learning for over a year. i saw firsthand all of those elements play out. loss of learning, social isolation. and, ainsley, you said this, it's so important to reiterate. it has its largest impact on minority and poor children. they are the ones that suffer from this. compounded in extreme ways that others do not montage of illinois students upset about the timing of this more than anything else. they are going to remote just a few days before they are notified, watch. >> i was mad. >> why? >> i personally don't like being
4:13 am
online. i wish we were in person. i feel like i learn better that way. >> i'm not too happy about it i feel like i have to work a little bit harder and pay attention a little bit more. because when you are doing remote learning you kind of just -- you could get easily distracted when you are at home, you are on your computer. you can zone out easily. but when you are in person you are more engaged. >> brian: that i think, is the most important. i want to hear from the kids, from 11th to second grade. my daughter started college remote this week up in her room. she bass was supposed to go back monday. the other was supposed to go on time. they got notices they have to get boozers. booze -- boosters.bypassing the. this is nuts. we have it covered from just grade school to teens to college we are witnessing it. notice i didn't say democrat, republican, conservative, liberal. this is bringing us together.
4:14 am
these people don't know what the hell they are doing and screwing up the next generation which is a bridge too far. we can handle it. when they start messing with people's kids, their families, their grandkids it's out of control. meanwhile, talk about out of control. every time this surge happens, whatever variant it is, they look at florida and numbers go up, this live free and understand the -- responsible governor santsd comes under fire. he kind of loves it he embraces it because such idiocy especially when they attack him friday night flipping a coin to start a high school football championship and then they didn't see him for a couple days, they say florida is on fire. where is the governor? the country has an omicron surge of cases, not deaths, increase in hospitalizations, he has got a system in place. and upon that, you should understand that the guy has a personal life. and it's all about his wife and what she is going through as well. listen to what the governor explained yesterday while also
4:15 am
trying to make sense of all of these politicians who come to florida first criticize it and then come there to vacation. listen. >> when people try to say that that's a vacation, i think anyone that's gone through those treatments would not agree that chemotherapy is a vacation so my wife has had to go through that i have accompanied to all those dreams, trying to be a supportive husband. so that's what we were doing on the one day where i didn't have anything on my public calendar because it is a private matter. but if people are going to lie, we are going to fight back. and i can tell you when you have people like that congresswoman who ripped florida because we are open, who say you need lockdown policies, and then the first chance they get they come running down to my state, if i had a dollar for every lockdown politician that's done that over the last two years, i would be awfully wealthy right now. >> ainsley: he says he know he is of at least half a dozen governors that have been down -- that have restrictions in their state that have been spotted
4:16 am
recently in florida. is he talking about aoc as well who was spotted over the weekend maskless at a crowded drag bar. also seen drinking coffee at a little table on the street. she went to miami. yet locking down new york. she supports all these lockdowns and these vaccines yet people flee down to florida to get away from all of that. they say one thing and then do something else. ron desantis also, his wife casey was diagnosed with cancer. they have three little children. she has a lot on her plate. he said the one day he didn't have anything on his public calendar was because he had a private issue. he said normally i would keep this private. but when i'm being criticized for taking a day off so i can stand or sit next to my wife and hold her hand while she is getting chemotherapy, then i will do that and i will make it a public matter now. i didn't want to do that but i will to defend myself and my family. he is so informed. you talk to anyone down in florida. they love him down there. many people want him to run for president. friends down in florida are saying i hope he doesn't because we need him in our state of florida. will?
4:17 am
>> will: ainsley, that sounded suspiciously like you might be offering up a little bit of criticism for aoc. preaching one thing and practicing another. preaching lockdowns and visiting florida because it's free. i want to be careful here. because if you were criticizing apartment oc that might, at least in her estimation, mean you are hiding some sexual frustrations. >> brian: exactly. >> will: when it comes to aoc. anyone who criticizes aoc is secretly attracted to her that's what she has revealed. >> ainsley: i think she is very pretty but i'm not attracted to her. >> brian: tell her that. i will with will she begs to differ. you might be hiding that it might be deep and buried. will candace owens was on tucker talking about this. >> how bizarre and immature is it for any person that wants to be taken seriously as an adult to look at a fair critique as elected official who has been barking about how florida is doing everything wrong how bad ron desantis is to see this critique and offer back you know what?

you just want to sleep with me. what are you even talking about so bratty and so immature and so disgusting to even think about. and let me just say this in case there is any confusion. i have a lot of critiques of ocasio-cortez. i have had a lot of critiques since the very beginning, no, sandy, i do not want to sleep with you. >> will: candace owens is officially on the record, ainsley. you might need to go on the record as well because you criticized aoc. governor desantis join "fox & friends" live on thursday. so you will want to hear that response in just a few minutes. whatting. >> ainsley: headlines this morning. more headlines five people are dead. without power after a massive snow storm swept through the south and the mid-atlantic areas. drivers became stranded on 95 in virginia during the storm. many of them driving up from florida. some were stuck overnight as heavy snow blanketed the region and some drivers are still

4:20 am
shirt. left the field. asked front office about the future with tampa bay. unclear what sparked the outburst or if brown has a future on any team. those are your headlines. will, brian, what do you all think about that. >> brian: he was asked to go back in the game twice. now thoughts he might have been hurt. he was going to make about a million dollars over the next two games if he had one more touchdown catch. three more receptions. probably going to make another million dollars in two weeks. this is -- if he is off this team, i think he is done. maybe they are going to talk about some type of mental issue that he had and that could change the dialogue here, will, i don't know, what do you think? >> ainsley: what is what the problem? i saw him with the shirt off but i don't know the details. >> will: i don't know exactly what happened as well. let's put it this way, this is not the first time it's happened with antonio brown. i believe in second chances i don't believe in 8 or 9th chances. >> brian: well put.

going to catch up with them. you can't suppress someone and tell someone how to think and feel and control the news that they get. eventually it will catch up and we are seeing that right now, right? >> absolutely. you will note the shift among social media companies in talking about disinformation. years ago to now talking about misinformation which actually refers to not intentional coordinated spread of incorrect information by a state actor foreign and abroad. now saying something they disagree with or without the proper context, that's actually the kind of shift we have seen online. ainsley, i think we are not necessarily going to have one alternative to each of these platted forms. there could be multiple alternatives to twitter or other social media companies. i think that's a good thing. i don't think we should have centralized sources of truth left wing or right wing version. we should have pluralism. choice in the. that's what the marketplace is all about. we are seeing in social media and requesting to see it across sectors over the course of 2022. >> will: vivek, i share your

optimism for competitor stepping up in the market place you would think people want which is free speech. before we say goodbye to the old ecosystem i'm curious where do you think twitter is headed. they now have a new ceo it seemed like from the distance they are getting more sensorrous, looking down to shut down more free speech. >> every company begins as insurgent when they succeed incumbent. twitter in face of becoming incumbent. the old founder who was ceo has stepped aside. new tech know accurate in charge doing what he is supposed to be doing waving his flag in whatever direction the wind blows on a given day that's what insum bents do. job of new insurgents to unseat the incumbent. that's the way the market works. sometimes consumers have to be a little bit impatient to see it happen. i think we are seeing decay of the silicon titans of the last era. going to happen in other

television series but i am a complete pop culture idiot when it comes to music. if it's not country music and really honestly texas country music, i don't know what you are talking about. i have never heard of phillip phillips. >> ainsley: funny how you get older it all changes. i used to watch like all those hollywood shows and then now that i have gotten older i have my tv on foxconn distantly i need to know what's happening in news and i love fox and love the folks on there. as we get older we don't know who all these celebrities are. i just found out a few weeks ago who kim kardashian was dating. i don't know if you know this we have james over here who drove in from new jersey this morning. we were showing the picture of cape may southern at this pointw jersey known for conservative people. known for victorian houses. known for antiquing. there is someone out there on the beach right now. >> brian: maybe a lifeguard. >> ainsley: yeah, he is wearing red. 7 to 8 inches of snow his friends told him yesterday they
5:04 am
got. is that snow on the beach. >> brian: that's fan fascinating. i have actually been there. the victorian houses are quite nice very hard to park. >> will: that's not white sand. that is snow on the beach i would assume based upon the outfit of that beach goer. but brian alluded to it so let's move to this. let's move to the insanity that is retaking our country. it seems there is no bottom. we can return to the insanity of the spring of 2020 at the drop of an omicron. we're ready apparently to go back to remote learning at least in chicago where chicago's teacher unions are making demands, they are going to demand remote schooling. here's what they are requesting. all staff and students provide negative rules pcr test taken 48 hours before returning to will school. chicago public schools they are asked that they provide 300 testing sites, also provide n 95 and kn 95 masks to all staff and students. give principals authority to
5:05 am
immediately go remote for any class where there is a positive covid case reported. brian, we can catalog and we should all the detriment and damage this does to children. we have talked about isolation, locals of learning, mental illness, but as a society, i just kind of want to step back and go i cannot believe we are so fear-driven and fragile. >> brian: absolutely. >> will: that he woodland even consider allowing this i saw a picture, brian, by the way in canada of them locking up hockey goals outside so kids couldn't play outside. we are back to filling up. >> brian: canada is the worst. >> will: we are losing our minds or some of us are ready to lose our minds once again if sane people don't stand up. brian bribe absolutely true. by the way, nobody has it right. australia certainly doesn't have it right. china is lying to us say only 4,000 dead. we know they are getting hit again by delta and omicron. you mentioned canada, fan goes to the game again in hockey. we don't have the market cornered on idiocy but certainly
5:06 am
refuse to give up the competitive race. so far we are seeing this: i am very encouraged that eric adams in new york says we have to get in school. we have to get kids back to school. 1 percent of children are infected at home. over 15% are infected at home. only 1% in schools. i say to parents bring your kids to school. in connecticut, over 160 schools are closed. in california, you got to get a positive test to get your kid back into school. massachusetts, the governor is pleading with these teachers unions and the teachers to go back to school. they want their kids in school. so some sanity is happening from liberal republicans to liberal democrats to moderate democrats, politicians, the president, anthony fauci, get the kids back in school. but not the teachers, ryan griffin, chicago parent, and he is just one person representing so many parents who don't ask if you are a democrat or a republican. want their kids in school. they see them suffering with friendships and with intellect.
5:07 am
listen. >> every level of the public health experts out there, they say in person school is safe and should be prioritized. but, will, that's never good enough for the chicago teachers union. they will never pass up an opportunity to exert their leverage and they will get power plays. they continue to come up with long list of demands relating to public health issues. testing, vaccinations. they want the school district to become a health clinic. they will call this a remote learning opportunity. they will not call this a waiver stoppage. s that what this is. that is harmful to the students of this city. >> ainsley: will, when you look atom chron and you hear what eric adams the new mayor of new york has said, the kids are safer in school in addition to being safer at school versus trapped in inside higher percentage has it at home than they do at school. they are also not learning when
5:08 am
they're at home. all these parents are concerned because you are only in school for what, 1 years, and we have already been out of school for so long and some of these districts, especially the ones like chicago or california that we heferred, they not only shut down in the spring of 2020, many of them didn't open in 2021 or toward the tail end of 2021. taking out a big chunks of a child's learning when they need to be learning how to read or need to be learning thousand be prepared for college. >> brian: we gave them the money. we gave them $10 billion. gave them billions of dollars to get their schools ready will boil front of the line for the vaccine. put them at the front of the line for the vaccine. >> brian: 90% got it. >> ainsley: chicago teachers union making the demands so high you can't get there 300 different testing sites, we can't get the test, you go to any drugstore and they say we don't have the test or might have them in the morning and don't have them in the afternoon. we don't have the supply. and so the government needs to provide more tests, provide more treatment and if the children get omicron or if anyone gets omicron, usually they say it's
5:09 am
just like having a cold or worse case scenario you feel like you have the flu for a few days, the house of delegates, the chicago teachers union they are going to vote today on this. >> brian: you know what they are going to say. ains apes they are going to say we want to work remotely. electronic voting or all the members will happen on wednesday. if both sides approve that then they will work remotely even though lori lightfoot the mayor of chicago and chicago public schools are not in agreement lori lightfoot and the chicago public schools say schools are safe and we need to help our kids stay in school here are some students that are upset. some of these students from lincoln way in new lennox a suburb of chicago. they found out on monday they will be working remotely for the reps of the week. they are hoping they go back next week. no one knows at this point. listen. >> i was mad. >> why? >> i personally don't like being online. i wish we were in person.
5:10 am
i feel like i learn better that way. i'm not too happy about it i feel like i have to work a little bit harder and pay attention a little bit more. because when you are doing remote learning, you kind of just -- you could get easily distracted when you are at home and on your computer. you could zone out easily, but when you are in person you are more engaged. >> will: as brian pointed out, we gave the teachers union the money they needed to meet their demands. we put them at the front of the line to get the vaccine, they have received almost every single demand throughout the last two years and, yet, the answer is more. clearly, when faced with something where the science says at worst you are going to face a mild sickness. the only conclusion can be is teachers union not teachers but teachers unions care nothing for our children. and they are one of the biggest not just impediments but sources of dang now tour children and their development for going on not just two years, not just decades but generations. now we move to this as well.

they say too much power concentrated certain amount of meat companies hurting the small time rancher, he wants subsidies small town rancher. conglomerate going on. larry summers, former secretary of treasury who was right about sustained inflation sadly, we are living through it $1.9 trillion in he says this ♪ the problem. having antitrust push is not going to help inflation. he says this will never help inflation. it won't affect it. it's not transitory. this is only going to hurt it meanwhile joe biden, answered back with facts. he didn't just go out there and just make up the fact that meat was a problem. he went to the source sunroom with a friend of his wife's. watch. >> i was sitting in my kitchen yesterday and there is a sunroom
5:13 am
off the kitchen and my wife was there with her sister and a good friend named mary ann and she was saying do you realize it is over $5 for a pound of hamburger meat? $5? well, this is partly, you know, the pound of beef today costs 5 bucks impaired to less than 4 bucks before the pandemic. >> ainsley: brian and will, he said that on monday, that means yesterday referring to sunday he was sitting in his kitchen and his wife and friend were in the sunroom. he found out on sunday that beef prices, that chicken prices that pork prices are going up? we have been talking about this and experiencing it for months. clearly he doesn't do his grocery shopping or maybe he doesn't care how much prices are going up. also, he is blaming this on big beef. well, you have had a monopoly in big beef. you have had four major companies district the majority of beef around our country for years. same with chicken, four companies. same with pork, four companies. we have had walmarts and targets for decades. two years ago when president
5:14 am
trump was in office, prices were down. he can't blame a monopoly. he has to blame gas prices going up. he shut down the pipeline. he gave control to russia, and then you look at labor, yes, he was paying people not to go to work. then people thought, you know what? i really didn't like my job. do you know what? i don't want to go back to work. i want to work for a small company or less pay or i'm going to stay home and i'm just going to take money from the government. a lot of people are not going back to work. those who are working are getting big bonuses because companies need their drivers, companies need people to process the meats, so you have got a labor shortage and gas prices are through the roof. deville is astronomical right now. truck drivers hard to find them if you can paying a lot for gas to put every single product that you buy that's in your cupboard on the shelves in our stores. look at firewood. firewood is going up because more people are trying to use firewood to heat their living rooms instead of their heat because energy prices are so extreme. whose fault is that? that's joe biden they are passing the buck.
5:15 am
>> brian: clearly. >> ainsley: passing the buck. like you said, will, this is the latest villain. bill will after this villain go after big firewood and big coffee and big furniture and every other aspect of our economy that is suffering through inflation. >> brian: i would like to bring something up. maybe use the actual green bay packers go into the meat place full uniform start working in meat places. one of my jobs in high school i'm just remembering now meat place i worked at norman's meats. >> will: really. >> brian: i have enormous respect for people who work in meat. worst shift can you get making chopped meat. go into the refrigerator with a lab coat with lining and you just jam a whole bunch of meat parts through a grinder and you get chopped meat. you didn't want the chop meat chipped. it's tough jobs. i hope they are paying them a lot. it doesn't surprise me people are getting paid more money not to got refrigerator and make chopped meat than to do it.

5:48 am
i actually look at this a little differently. i think it's interesting that on the anniversary of the killing of absolutely, president trump did that famous striking of absolutely two years ago. everybody thought the world was going to end and major conflict with iran and world war iii was going to start. what happened? well, not very much. and relatively speaking this is pretty insignificant responds two years later to that strike of absolutely. so it shows a couple of things. one, that trump policy of taking design action and, therefore, reestablishing deterrence with our enemies, it does actually work. peace through strength or strength through peace -- peace through strength actually does work. and i think trump showed that on a variety of cases. we can't undo that leverage. right now you are seeing the biden administration want to renegotiate the jcpoa the iran nuclear deal with iran go back to the table. that's a mistake because inevitably what they do with
5:49 am

5:50 am
you can call this play list the bury your head in the sand. probably put together 20-year-old intern, if you look at the play list that's what it appears to me to be. this is what antony blinken listens to when he doesn't want to deal with the world's problems and do his job. again, whether it's americans left behind in afghanistan. whether it's russia, ukraine border. whether it's china taiwan issue, whether it's our southern border, pick any of them antony blinken doesn't want to deal with it. >> brian: yep. >> in politics we always walk this line of doing professional things on the one hand but also showing the people that we are human and that we can do fun things. but there is a time and place for that and with the world as it is right now, with this administration, under such deserved scrutiny, it shouldn't be promoting silly play lists that were clearly meant for teenagers. >> brian: said he was going to bring the world together. glucose with that congressman dan crenshaw thank you so much. >> ainsley: thank you.
