3:02 am
number one cable news show ains it is thursday. very close to the weekend. brian: for a woman who loves her job you look forward to the weekend. brian: smash mouth. big hit. monkeys were sadly pulled off the air 1968. steve: i think they were on one or two years. two seasons. ainsley: they had a show? brian: i don't know before there was a group there was a show. steve: whole idea of the monkeys because the beatles were so popular, a tv producer in hollywood said what if we got four good looking guys together and had them be musicians. they have actually recorded some songs and sounded pretty good and sold a bunch of records. brian: david jones later appeared on the brady bunch. ainsley: we saw them arrive g-20 summit saturday and got
3:03 am
on plane yesterday in france because is he there for bass bastille day. there he is with melania walking down the stairs of air force one. steve: two leaders looking to seek common ground as they look to find ways to combat terrorism. they are going to talk trade and climate change. brian: how much can get done in 27 hours. griff jenkins previews. >> just hours prosecute now i will be meeting with french president macron where the president is working to find ways on combating terrorism as tomorrow marks the anniversary of last year's bastille day in nice. they will also address differences on climate change which has been a source of tension after the u.s. withdrew from the accord last month. tight lipped what's on the agenda. >> when the president has his discussions with president macron is it your expectation
3:04 am
he will engage him on this concept of climate change and the paris accord? >> we never get ahead of the president's conversations. we will certainly provide a readout and you will have a chance to ask the president himself. >> the two leaders holding a joint press conference after their meeting. you can guess what many of those questions will be about as the russia investigation continues to overshadow this trip. one area where the two leaders are likely to find common ground, guys, is syria. president macron has been on the same page with president trump. and could prove to be a key ally for the administration as they continue to put pressure on bashar assad. finally first lady melania took her own path this morning visiting france's biggest pediatric hospital, the necker hospital which is one of paris' oldest. she met with doctors. you see her there, doctors and young patients. we will see. the trumps are in france, of course, to celebrate bastille day tomorrow. guys? brian: thanks, griff. i think it's going to be very interesting. they say when macron invited the president to come over in bastille day he was on the
3:05 am
fence. ainsley: back in may. brian: we are going to be having a huge parade. 100 years since you helped us out in world war 1. you probably want to be a part of it the president as soon as he heard about the military display he said i'm in. that's what he is going to be over seeing today. steve: if you are looking for the president tonight around supper time he will be at elaine famous restaurant famously located. ainsley: eiffel tower? brian: why not the hard rock isn't there is a hard rock paris? ainsley: eiffel tower might trump that. also is he going to have a press conference today around lunchtime. watch that on neil cavuto's show. he is going to be talking with macron. steve: he did one television interview with pat robertson, the founder of the 700 club and the christian broadcasting network. it will run tonight on the 700 club. it's interesting though, he
3:06 am
was asked about vladimir putin. you know, it's all about russia these days. pat asked him about russia and putin. and donald trump had a really interesting answer regarding hillary clinton and president putin would have preferred a president clinton. listen. >hillary had won, our military would be disseminated. our energy would be much more expensive. that's what putin doesn't like about me. that's why i say why we want me? from day one, i wanted a strong military. he doesn't want to see that from day one i want fracking and everything else to get energy prices low and to create tremendous energy. we're going to be self-supporting. we just about are now. we are going to be exporting energy. he doesn't want that he would like hillary where she wants to have wind mills. he would much rather have that because energy prices will go up and russia, as you know, relies very much on energy. there are many things that i do are that are the exact opposite that he would want.
3:07 am
brian: putting additional troops in bulgaria and making nato pay their fair share because nato really exists to counter originally the soviet and now the russian threat. look what he has done in syria. we have bulked up over there. a matter of weeks or months taking over he steam rolls everything in mosul and raqqa. if you look at actions as opposed to allegations, the president has been a lot harder to deal with for vladimir putin than barack obama ever was or hillary clinton would have been. no one can hearing what he said. ainsley: cbn released more of that interview that's going to air tonight. one question that pat robertson asked him was about healthcare. this was a very fascinating response. listen to what he said. this is a message to those folks serving our country in washington to get this thing passed. >> i'm sitting in the oval office with pen in hand waiting for our senators to give it to me. for years, they have been talking about repeal and
3:08 am
replace, repeal, replace. i think they passed it 61 times repeal and replace. >> um-huh. >> that didn mean ything cause you had the minority, the republicans. they didn't have the majority. so it wasn't going to get to the president. if it ever did obama wasn't going to sign it. now we have a president that's waiting to stein. >> what's of the hold up? >> you need almost all of them. >> and that's the holdup. >> what will happen if they don't? >> well, i don't even want to talk about it, because i think it will be very bad. i will be very angry about it. i think a lot of people will be very upset. i'm sitting waiting for that bill to come to my desk. steve: all that has to happen is mitch mcconnell has got to deliver 50 republicans to say yes for it. here's the problem right now. keep in mind there are 10 republican senators who have said no. right now they are not even to the point they don't have the points to proceed at this point. later on this morning mitch is going to unveil the latest version of it the highlights
3:09 am
of it, people who are critics of it say, look, you have still got a lot of the regulationregulations from obam. have you got the taxes from obamacare. you have the insurance subsidies from obamacare. people have voted over the last number of years people have voted to get rid of still baked into the new bill. that's why a lot of people feel there is a real good possibility this thing is not going to pass. brian: a guy like ted cruz has an amendment that really look at what ted cruz is putting forward. it's not perfect for a conservative like him. he understands center right plan is better than obama's plan which republicans view is wrong. rand paul joining us in an hour and 15 minutes says right now i'm a no. the senate bill does not repeal obamacare, not even close. however, you can't purely take out obamacare and put a new one in because you don't have 60 republicans. they if ticket democrats and got them all. bribe them and do everything. steve: we had me mo brooks on yesterday.
3:10 am
why don't they use the nuclear option. repeal it and have a grace period of a couple years. brian: that would be a disaster. steve: that's what people voted for. ainsley: haven't decided what's best for the constituents of their state that may be the best way to do it. they risk there is a lot of pressure on republicans not only on mitch mcconnell to get this thing passed but to make sure it's right. if the same thing happened with this bill as with obamacare and insurance companies pulling out that's going to be a disaster. brian: nothing you said was wrong. i understand. ainsley: for a change. brian: picture. this repeal no plan. obamacare. two years go by. every month no plan. republicans have no plan. we still have no plan. insurers don't want to be part of anything that they -- there is no certainty in. steve: how many times did congress pass repeal and replace. brian: years to replace would be disaster. ainsley: put something in place that says we have to
3:11 am
have it replaced in two years. brian: why would anyon believe that? because they just had seven years e. ainsley: pressure to do it brian: they had seven years. now they have power and can't produce a plan. going to wipe it out and fell you we have nothing. steve: conservatives on capitol hill are already saying we are not going to blame the president for this if it doesn't go through. we will blame mitch mcconnell. brian: pretty clear the president was running an empire he wasn't running a national healthcare plan. he was giving them an opportunity to do something. and i think everyone has got to give. in i'm not saying anyone has got it right or wrong but they have got to compromise. steve: i don't know. the whole thing about the affordable care act right now is there is some problems with it and if the new version doesn't fix it, penal are going to be steamed. if it's not cheaper and not better, people are going to go wait, we are spending billions of dollars for that? brian: reason why healthcare wasn't done for 80 years someone is always going to be unhappy. that's what you have to understand there is always going to be a segment not pleased. can tom price in health and
3:12 am
human services can he hone it in the next three and a half and he hopes seven years to make it better? ainsley: people agree repealing and replacing would be idea so they could focus on other things and not have to keep going back to healthcare. send it over to jillian who has other news for us. jillian: let's get straight to a fox news alert right now. a grim discovery overnight in the search for four missing men in bucks county, pennsylvania. authorities finding human remains and identifying one of the victims. police outside philadelphia say the body of 19-year-old dean was discovered on 90-acre farm. is he one of four young men who vanished last week. you can see their pictures on the screen right now. investigators are working to identify several other bodies found in the same grave. >> i don't understand the science behind it, but those dogs could smell these four boys 12 and a half feet below the ground. ainsley: spotlight now intensifying on the person of

3:17 am
brian: overnight president trump arriving in paris and our president open arms by our president. here to explain retired four star general jack keane. why does this matter?
3:18 am
bastille day. military display marking 100 years since we entered world war i. >> i think it matters for a couple of reasons. something, you know, our viewers may not realize but the french is the only major european power that the united states has never fought a war with and as such, we have been allied with them in more wars than any other country. so, and our military, as a result of that, has a very close relationship with the french military. and by the way, president trump's appeal for more burden sharing among nato militaries, the french contribute about 1.8% and they will get to 2% in the next couple of years. so they're absolutely committed to what's going on in nato in terms of the collective defense of that entire alliance. the second thing here is, you know, while there is a huge difference in age between the two men. i think they have more in common than not. and the reason is that think were both ushered in by antiestablishment votes.
3:19 am
remember, all the political parties in france were defeated except macron and le pen's party which is far right wing conservative party. he ran on national populism, which is fundamentally what president trump was running on as well. and it is a movement that is a way moving across europe. i also think that the other european leaders led by angela merkel made some terrible bets. number one, is open borders, number two is mass immigration with no vetting. number three is multi-culturallism which has led to isolated muslim communities which are breeding grounds for radical islam. macron has that in his own country and knows it and is going to deal with it. >> general, going to talk syria and we know that the french have been active there what do you hope comes out of that meeting? >> we have a long way to go on syria. listen, we have got to be
3:20 am
upfront about this. the russians and the iranians have succeeded in propping up the assad regime indefinitely. they are not going anywhere. there is no political leverage to do anything about that. this war will end when the opposing forces are willing to put their arms down and there is no end in that. they are absolutely committed because assad and the russians and the iranians are killing and destroying their neighborhoods, their families, and their kids and everything. that is where we are. it is intractable. e. brian: general, thanks so much. we will talk to you again in depth on that. day five of a cease-fire. that means no one has died yet today. that's good news at the very least. >> that's very good news. brian: general, thank you. meanwhile straight ahead on this show nypd -- -- many in the mainstream media

brian: james o'neil honoring fallen officer familia and denouncing antipolice hate yesterday. >> let me tell you something, regular people sign up to be cops. they sign up for this job of protecting strangers knowing their inherent risk. not one of us ever agreed to be murdered in an affect indefensible hate. not one of us signed up to not return to our family or loved ones. so where were the demonstrations for the single mom who cared for her elderly mother and her own three children? [applause] steve: well, on the heels of that police in new jersey held a coffee with cops event to connect with people in the community. ainsley: "fox & friends" correspondent todd piro was there and he joins us now. hey, todd. todd: hey, ainsley, brian and steve. this was casual event called coffee with cops as the name implied. intimate event. people got to come from that community to talk with cops and each other about what needs to be done do improve the discourse here in the country. we got to speak with some
3:27 am
those folks. take a look. >> what was your reaction to mayor de blasio's reaction following the death of officer familia? >> i thought it was disrespectful. he should have been there. >> oh, i think he should have been in new york after it happened instead of leaving the country and going where he went. he should have been here supporting the other officers and family that was involved. >> when you watch the news, and you see how cops are treated, what's your response? >> i'm sick, okay. they are treated bad all over. okay? >> i think that there's a lack of respect for authority. i don't think that they necessarily always get the respect that they deserve. >> it's a little scary that the people don't trust police more. their first thought is to assume the police were in the wrong that they did something wrong, when most of the time they're just trying to help everyone out. >> there is a lack of communication in the communities. i think the more people --
3:28 am
whoever they are, policemen, anybody who are different or doing a different job. the mother they can communicate, that's something we stress very hard in this school with the children you get along with people if you communicate with them and solve your problems. >> cops are approachable and we want to be there to help people. that's one of reasons helping people like this people can come up and talk to us and see what we do on a daily basis. and that we're there to help them. >> obviously the focus was the assassination of officer familiar i can't. the theme in america just generally about the lack of communication that occurs, especially in inner cities between officers and their communities. and i'm no expert on the subject, but i have to think that an officer being present at all events for a slain officer -- or the mayor i should say being present in an event for slain officers would
3:29 am
have helped the discourse go along. not being there certainly not helping the discourse. steve: some of the things we heard about officer familia after she was murdered people in the neighborhood are going to miss her she was actually somebody in the community. they knew her. they went out and talked to her. >> we had father jonathan morris on the weekend show he was explaining the same things. he was in that community. she was in the community. they were often together. it's a sad story all the way around. now the question is beyond this assassination, how do we bridge the gap here in the country? we're a long way from doing it. i think they have it figured out. we didn't hear lot of negativity. people were positive about the officers in their community. home dale is just one town in our big country. ainsley: thank you for bringing it to light for all of us. brian: thanks, todd. ainsley: coming up all you hear these days is russia, russia, russia. do measures even care? we are going to find out when we talk to our panel of seven moms. there they are coming up next. brian: very well behaved. they have sat there so quietly

do you realize the president of the united states met with the president of russia 2 hours and 15 minutes. yet we are talking about this and not that do you realize you have people in the media lower third kyrons come out of their mouth. they talk more about russia than america. ainsley: mainstream media still the trump administration's alleged ties to russia do. every day americans care about this? we brought in panel of moms from all walks of life to find tout. it's a segment we are calling parental advisory. thank you, ladies, for being with us. >> thank you. ainsley: yesterday we had lee carter on. she polled a lot of people to find out what they cared about. the things they wanted to hear about jobs and economic growth. the thing they wanted to hear least about was trump administration's ties with russia. i want to talk to you all about that and what your main concerns are. start with you, hope in the back and go through each with you and find out what your concerns are what your concerns as a mom? >> as a mom i'm concerned about tax reform and the economy and reform of healthcare. because i have six kids and
3:35 am
they are all kind of entering the workforce after the different stages. and i really want a robust and positive economy for them to participate. in. ainsley: so they don't have to move back in with you. >> that's right. ainsley: daniel, how about you? >> i think there has been at love talk in the media about russia. i also think that the president and the administration could probably tamp that down by speaking a bit more clearly and directly about what actually happened and what context the campaign might have had. to hope's point, i care about the economy. i have a two and a half-year-old. but i care about a president and administration that is thinking about the economy not just now but in 10 years or 20 years when she is going to be thinking about jobs and college. ainsley: re beck canchts i want my 12-year-old daughter to hear about syria. ainsley: north korea a concern for you. >> north korea a big concern. i would like to hear more of that news. what's north korea doing with its missiles? what's up with france? i want to hear the international reporting. importance of her future
3:36 am
world. ainsley: she brings up a good point. do you care more about how russia is connected to syria and this donald trump's son beating with a russian lawyer. >> absolutely not. i don't think it's binary. i think we can focus on russia. we can walk and talk at the same time. as a mom of a 4-year-old and 2-year-old. i want to know how betsy devos secretary of education is doing in her role. how shoe s. that evolving. we should talk about all of these i at the same level. ainsley: carley, you are shaking your head. >> i'm not concerned about russia. we feel there is no evidence that is putting our president, commander-in-chief in a bad light. we have full confidence in our president that is he going to do an amazing job. but the economy, he has hired tens of thousands of employees. is he highly successful. we are very confident in the team that he has put around him. ainsley: cathy? >> likewise. the issues regarding jobs, taxes, healthcare, all those things are very important. and one thing that has not been mentioned yet, i'm also concerned about the rampant
3:37 am
amount of lawlessness that we are seeing on the streets as well as throughout the ranks of our government. when i have to think twice about wearing a donald trump t-shirt because i don't know what kind of liberal lunatic is going to meet me at the grocery store i think that is a very important concern of ours today. ainsley: angel? >> i agree with that something somebody didn't mention is obamacare i'm waiting for that to be repealed and replaced. for my family our premiums have gone through the roof. that's what i hear a lot of moms talking about for our kids. ainsley: what's most important when it comes to healthcare for you. >> i think affordable healthcare across the board. and, you know, take their time. we don't have to do a quick fix. i would like to see something this year but, you know, we don't have to rush it. get it right do it right this time. ainsley: are you talking about the meeting that donald trump jr. had with the russian lawyer in your houses. >> no. ainsley: cathy, you say no? >> the media's breathless
3:38 am
coverage of donald trump jr. borders fake news not because the content of it is inaccurate but because their slant on how they are reporting the content is misleading. there is nothing unprecedented about it what sorry. when you have and we all know now because of documented, hillary clinton's campaign meeting with ewe ukrainian element for the exact same purpose that creates a precedent. when you have nancy pelosi meeting with the now mexican president for the contact same purpose of getting information against donald trump. that creates a precedent. no, we are not talking about it we don't care. ainsley: wenty, daniel, it is a concern for you, why? >> first it was about adoption. with people that donald trump didn't know. and then the story changed and changed and then the emails were released, which i actually give credit for the president's son for doing. i like to see that kind of transparency. there were some falsehoods
3:39 am
circulating around. this you had to ask why. why not come out when you are asked? why not apparently the intelligence community knew about this in april. why hide it if there is no problem here. ainsley: wendy, are you a democrat? >> i am. ainsley: i guess you didn't vote for the president. you voted for hillary clinton? >> i did. ainsley: what can democrats learn from his win? >> i think that's what's really important here is that democrats need to know, going into 2018 in the midterms we cannot have the same rhetoric. we need something new. we need new energy. and i think that's what donald trump brought to america in essence, right? i often tell my friends that a lot of times when we think of obama, we think he brought hope. for a lot of people whether you want to hear it or not, trump brought hope to seeingment of the population and that can't be denied. so, going into 2018, i would say for any democratic leader we have to think of new blood, new tactics. we can't have the same, you know, rhetoric because it is not working.
3:40 am
we need something new here. ainsley: is there one leader we should be following and looking out for? >> right now my eyes are completely open. and i'm just looking for whoever is best fit for the job. there are some people who are bubbling up in the conversation. but i don't have one right now that i'm like this is a sure bet for us and this is who is going to move the needle for our party. ainsley: thank you, ladies for being with us and thank you for being such great moms. coming up next on the rundown, a satanic display about to go up in a public park. how do you like that, moms. they are all mouths wide open here. donald trump's emails dominating the evening news on tuesday, taking up more than half of the coverage. so, what are they missing? we are going to break it down. they clearly didn't talk to these ladies. we have a huge show on tap. rnc chair woman ronna mcdowell and mitch rand paul and michigan 14e8 malkin.

4:03 am
100th anniversary of the entry the u.s. troops into world war i and most importantly, this is a show of solidarity between the united states and france in the war against terror because you will remember that on june 14th, 2016, a terrorist using a truck as a weapon mowed down more than 500 people along the promenade of the coastal city of nice killing 866 of those people. the president this afternoon will hold a blawrl meeting with the president here emanuel macron. the two of them have had disagreements in the past. there is an interesting chemistry that's developed between the two. they will talk about trade, they will talk about security. and syria as well. then they will hold a press conference. at which we expect questions will come up about what donald trump jr. was doing when he had that meeting with that russian attorney, in june of 2016. the president yesterday in an interview with reuters saying he doesn't fault donald jr. for having that meeting. he said basically i think many people would have held that meeting. he said it was the decision
4:04 am
made in the upstart of presidential campaign. he said he only learned about it a few days ago. in that interview with reuters the president again confirmed there was no collusion as far as he knows between the gain and russians. he was also asked whether or not he believed vladimir putin's assertion during that blawrl meeting thebilateral meen hamburging that nothing to do in the election. something happened. we have to find out what happened because we can't have that talking about dinner, expense accounts, of the president tonight is going to have dinner that little thing over my -- it's over my left shoulder. the eiffel tower, i'm sorry it was over my left shoulder last night at the jewels vern restaurant. blue lobster, caviar on the menu. famous blue lobster no. word on the menu. did i see steak with ketchup. brian: that's impressive.

jack keane on the program. four star general, talking about how this is going to be a good visit for our president. >> i think they have more in common than not. the reason is that they were both ushered in by antiestablishment votes. he ran on national populism, which is fundamentally what president trump was running on as well. i also think that the other european leaders led by angela merkel made some terrible bets. multi-culturallism, which has led to isolated muslim communities which are breeding grounds for radical islam. macron has that in his own country and knows it and is going to deal with it. steve: we are going to hear from both the leaders later on as the president is in paris and there will be a press event. brian: i think it's going to be impactful because both leaders will be shoulder to shoulder. one quote that one of macron's aides says he wants to make sure this president knows is he not isolated. this is one of the reasons he did it then when he told the

president on june 27th when spoke got to come to bastille day, it's going to be a major show of military strength and force and commemoration to 100 years since you guys entered world war i. he said i'm in. steve: mr. macron wants to raise his profile in the international stage. and by having sitdown supper there in the eiffel tower with the president, bingo, that does it. ainsley: president has only had one tv interview this week. we saw him come back from the g-20 on saturday. obviously i was going to say hitting the road. hitting the skies to head over to paris yesterday. but, in between his time -- or hirst time here in the u.s., he did have that one sit down interview with cnn founder pat robertson. in that interview, which airs tonight, they have released a few of the clips already, he talks about how vladimir putin really wanted hillary to win. watch. >> hillary had won, our military would be disseminate disseminated. our energy would be much more expensive.
4:08 am
that's what putin doesn't like about me and that's why i say why would he want me? from day one i wanted a strong military. he doesn't want to see that from day one i want fracking and everything else to get energy prices low and to create tremendous energy. we're going to be self-supporting. we just about are now. we are going to be exporting energy. he doesn't want that he would like to have hillary who wants to have wind mills. he would much rather have that energy prices would go up and russias as you know relies on energy. many things i do that are the exact opposite that he would want. brian: bulking up our presence in syria. including sending tomahawk missiles in and putting increased military presence on his border on bulgaria. forcing nato to reaffirm their financial commitment to the defense department respective nations in order to counter the rise of russia he divots not do this with the same bluster as he talks about domestic programs.
4:09 am
that's his approach to foreign policy. his foreign policy is action over words. he likes to get behind closed doors look what i have done, now let's talk deal. steve: with the foreign policy, he doesn't necessarily need congress. that is the impediment. so, while you have got that interview with pat robertson tonight on the 700 club where putin says, according to mr. trump, he would have preferred -- putin would have preferred hillary, mr. trump, the president of the united states, apparently behind the scenes is frustrated that because of the russia, russia, russia thing. his agenda, the domestic agenda is not going forward. but the obsession by the mainstream media has gotten to this level and it has prompted kellyanne conway to use props to explain what's going on. >> this is how we see it so far. this is to help all the people at home. what's the conclusion? collusion? no. we don't have that yet. i see illusion and delusion. just so we are clear everyone, four words, collusion?

enforced. only refugees with family members in the united states will be allowed to enter. the exception stems from president trump's partially reinstated travel ban that restricts travelers from six middle eastern countries. all right. ainsley? ainsley: president trump sitting down with the pat robertson of the christian broadcasting network. >> he wants what's good for russia. i want what's good for the united states. >> okay. >> and i think, like in a case like syria where we can get together and do a cease-fire and there are other cases, there are many other cases where getting along can be a very positive thing, but always putin is going to want russia and trump is going to want united states. and that's the way it is. and sometimes you're not going to get along on things and sometimes you will. but we had a good meeting. ainsley: joining us now is david brody, the white house correspondent for the christian broadcasting network and a friend of our show.
4:26 am
good morning to you, david, thanks for coming on. >> you bet, ainsley. ainsley: what are the highlights of the interview that we're going to be see in its entirety tonight. >> first of all, it's a very much a policy driven interview. i have to tell you i have done personally about 10 interviews or so with the president over the campaign. that's the most policy that he has talked about throughout -- it's about a 25-minute conversation or. so i think that's interesting in and of itself. the other part that i thought was interesting was very measured during that there are times where donald trump will want to either take some shots at the media or kind of go off and just, you know, let him have it didn't do that in this interview. i think it was pretty substantive. the other issue is vladimir putin talking specifically about this idea of why in the world would putin want trump as he would say because of the energy issue. and i thought that was an interesting angle. we haven't heard too much from trump did b. that as it relates, to look, energy is a problem for putin and the last thing he wants is trump in the middle of all of that.
4:27 am
ainsley: david, lets' play that clip you are talking about. watch this, folks. >> there are many things that i do that are the exact opposite that he would want. so when i keep hearing about he would rather have had trump, i think probably not because when i want a strong military, she wouldn't have spent the money on the military. when i want a strong military and when i want tremendous energy, we're opening up coal. we are opening up natural gas. we are opening up fracking. all the things that he would hate, but nobody ever mentions that. ainsley: david, did he talk about his son meeting with that lawyer from russia last june? >> no. that was not part of the discussion. of course, i think what part of this interviewer or a lot of this interview had to do with was other issues, china, trade, a lot of north korea, there is a lot -- there is a chock full of in information in this interview. that's the information people care about. last time i checked i don't think people are gathering around the kitchen table going how is donald trump's email
4:28 am
chain going to effect me and my pocketbook? i don't know if that is happening in peoria, illinois. ainsley: david, thanks for coming on and talk about it preview that interview tonight. folks at homeworking, we will be showing a lot of that interview tomorrow i'm sure. thanks, david. the mainstream media boosting the russian narrative to nearly wall-to-wall coverage. is that what you at home really want? our mom panel is back to tell us what they really care about. and, haters of the president pressured peyton manning to not golf with president trump. how peyton manning responded next. o whoop there it is ♪ there it is ♪ she also prescribed lyrica. fibromyalgia is thought to be the result of overactive nerves. lyrica is believed to calm these nerves. woman: for some,

4:33 am
that discourse, yes. because we have to have this conversation to see if anything happened. but not 95%. steve: no kidding. well, we tried to balance things out. there was a recent poll that found that fox news the most balanced when you look at everybody. if you are not talking about russia all the time at your house, what are you interested in? >> well as i said before we are really interested in tax reform. we are really excited about the way to get the economy going again. we are also very interested in healthcare and getting that under control again. steve: okay, when it comes to healthcare, right now the senate apparently they are going to wheel out some new version. it sounds an awful lot like the affordable care act. some of the taxes still in there insurance subsidies, slush fund in there. is that what you want? >> no. they need to get a plus on healthcare. they need to take their time and do it right. steve: all right. rebecca? if not russia, what do you want to hear about at your house. >> my daughter and husband we care about the military. so we do want to hear about russia. we want to hear about what
4:34 am
russia is doing lighting up our in syria. ground missile defense work. we want to hear international issues that are important to us right now and important to my daughter's future world. steve: you are talking to your daughter about ground based missiles at your house? >> you bet. we have a really fun house. [laughter] we will explain it all to you any time, steve. steve: no kidding. let me ask you this. he is only about 200 days in. how is president trump, our commander-in-chief doing at your house. >> is he doing well at our house and around the world. we have to have a stronger military posture. we need to know that ground missile defense works. we have a site in alaska and california. trump is going to face a nuclear armed north korea those are the big issues at my house. >> in the back row we have a hope front row we have an angel. what about your house? >> economy and jobs. you know, i would like to see more focus on the economy and growing the economy. steve: how do we dethat that.
4:35 am
>> that's what i think president trump is doing a great job so far. the last report i saw was 800,000 jobs have been created so far on his watch. so i think if he can just keep plugging ahead and knot get distracted by the whole russia thing i think that would be good. steve: cathy, i know you home school your children. >> i do. steve: god bless you. >> i need the prayers. steve: no kidding. so you know, your -- you have got a captive audience with you all day long. what do you talk about? >> my babies are 8 and 11. y yes, they are still my babies. steve: they always will be. >> they will always be my babies. they are a little too young for me to tell them to think independently. instead what my husband and i are focused on is expanding knowledge base and teaching them how to think logically and clearly so they are not manipulated by uninformed emotion. the last thing we want are for our children to be standing up in a university campus going through a puppy therapy
4:36 am
session. steve: maybe i should home school your kids in college. >> i don't know. but i want them to be informed. i also want them to know that truth actually exists. and that more rattle matters. these are the kind of things that we talk about to our 8 and 11-year-old. steve: that's fantastic. carley, what about at your house? >> in our house we say that polls are good for two things, strippers and skiers. they are not very accurate. steve: what kind of house do you have? how old are your kids? >> a really fun one. i have three girls, 16, 14, and soon to be 12. steve: oh, man. >> i know. what's really important to our home is that we have seen that sharia law has been glorified and a mom of three little girls, we talk a lot about how that is when you read through the female genital mutilation and that women are not, you know, they are second class citizens. that's really important in our household is just having women's rights. steve: that's what you talk
4:37 am
about at your house. occasionally you do leave your house and with the exception of cathy. >> i home school but i still go out. steve: there is no carpool life for you. are you reluctant to talk about politics with some of your neighbors because not everybody is on the same political page. >> not at all. steve: you are not. >> because of the culture we live in, we have to get outside of our bubbles and start engaging our neighbors and speaking clearly of what truth is. and we have to get beyond ourselves with the whole fear aspect of it. >> teach our children truth. if our children do not recognize truth, they are going to believe the counterfeit. that's big in our house. just reading through the declaration of independence, bill of rights. steve: you talk about those things when you are not talking about the stripper pole at your house? >> yes. steve: i teach politics so it matter to me. >> we need educated democracy. jefferson we need educated democracy. steve: dialogue.

4:45 am
for years. they have been promising it ever since obamacare, which has failed. it's a failed experiment. it is totally gone. it's out of business. and we have to get this done, repeal and replace. brian: but our next guest warns this new bill does nothing to repeal obamacare. here to explain g.o.p. kentucky senator rand paul. senator, are you encouraged at all about any changes over the break as we get set to all find out the details of this plan? >> yeah. you know, unfortunately, the new plan actually doesn't repeal obamacare. it keeps about half of the obamacare taxes. keeps most of the obamacare regulations. keeps most of the obamacare subsidies and it creates a giant insurance bailout super fund. and i just can't vote for a bill that creates a 200 billion-dollar fund to bail out insurance companies. i'm just not for that i promised to repeal obamacare not to continue obamacare. brian: you know you can't repeal it because you don't have 60 votes to replace it.
4:46 am
so that's not going to happen. so, judging by the fact that this bill, even with its false that as you view it, this bill is better than obamacare, why not pass it and make it better over the next three years or maybe over next five years through your health and human services secretary. >> i don't know that this is better than obamacare. we keep in place the fundamental flaws of obamacare. the fundamental flaw of obamacare, which has caused the death spiral is that we tell people hey, you don't need to buy insurance now. you can get it after you are sick. what a great deal. and we have these regulations that make it really expensive for young, healthy people. all of that remains and so the republicans don't fix the death spiral of obamacare, they subsidize it. so this nearly 200 billion-dollar insurance bailout fund is to subsidize the death spiral. we don't fix the death spiral. i can't vote for surgery that doesn't repeal obamacare and doesn't fix it. brian: tell me about the 200 billion-dollar fund you are referred to. >> there is something called insurance stabilization fund.
4:47 am
to my mind it's a bailout of the insurance companies. the insurance companies make $15 billion a year. they have got their hands all over this bill. they have written everything in the bill is to benefit insurance companies. what kind of business is it to be in a business where everybody has to buy insurance and then it is subsidized. insurance companies don't need taxpayer money. i think it's a crazy idea. and i just can't support more big government. i promised people i would repeal obamacare. this bill doesn't repeal it. brian: in reality. i was listening to jason riley conservative columnist on sunday. might be as conservative as you. he said in reality, in today's america you can't take back america's entitlements. can you shape it and work the edges but not do it all over again. >> i disagree. i have think we can offer something better than obamacare. 27 million people left behind by obamacare who have no insurance.
4:48 am
i offer a insurance to all of them. let every individual in this country, plumbers, let them join together so they can get group insurance at a cheaper price. you have to believe in freedom and leaving people alone will bring the market prices down. brian: no one questions your intellect and experience especially with medical background. ron johnson a conservative says i'm going to try to make this better. it looks like he is ready to get on board. ted cruz wants to be part of it i get the sense that he would bite his tongue and get on board. if it would show a victory for republicans and be better and you can make it better, why not do it and then over the course of time, through a presidented who believes what you believe in many cases who you get along with at least golf with why not try to make it better rather than just drop it and lose. >> it's not an either/or situation. i think you can still have a conservative, clean repeal.
4:49 am
i think if this bill fails, i think there is still a chance it will fail. our backup plan should be divide the bills in two. have a clean repeal what we promised the american people. clean repeal evidence obamacare. if big government republicans want to intend leeft money they can work with democrats on a separate biffle that spends money. you can't have conservatives myself voting for something. brian: governor, up against a break. buff these people believe what you believe buy they less know they can't get 60 votes. >> it's a simple majority. 52 republicans. every one of them promised to repeal obamacare. why don't we put forward the bill we voted on a year ago. we voted on a clean repeal a year agency. every republican say one voted for it why don't we do that again. brian: i understand. that year with no plan will be also -- could destroy a party. >> just lack of resolve and lack of commitment and people forgetting they promised the american voter they would

5:03 am
and because this is the 100th anniversary of the engagement of u.s. troops in world war i, there will be a janet of u.s. members who are marching in that parade tomorrow. so that will be a real moment for president trump. this also is an opportunity for the u.s. president and the new french president emmanuel macron to stand side by side in solidarity against isis and terrorism. because it was july 14th last year that a truck driver, a terrorist mode down more than 500 people in the promenade in the coastal city killing some 86 people. so this is a opportunity for the two presidents to stand shoulder to shoulder to say it we're going to do whatever we can to fight this. there are lots of places of commonality between the u.s. president. the u.s. intention to withdrawal from the paris climate accord is one. trade is another. the two of them will have a bilateral meeting this afternoon, and then they will hold a press conference where each leader is expected to take two questions. you can bet that president trump will get a question on the meeting that his son don
5:04 am
jr. had wit in june of 2016. the president weighed in on that yesterday in a interview with reuters saying he doesn't fault donald trump jr. for that meeting. it was in the heat of an upstart campaign. the president said many people would have held that meeting and that he only learned about it just a couple of days ago, really, when the news broke. in that interview with reuters, the president also weighed in for the first time with his meeting with vladimir putin at the g20 last week. when asked whether or not he accepted putin's assertion neither he nor russia had any interference with the u.s. election, the president didn't answer definitively, only to say that nothing happened and this sort of thing canned transpire. in addition to the meetings that will occur over the next few days, the president will also have a private moment with his wife melania, the first lady, and the president of france and his wife when the four of them have dinner in the second floor of the

5:06 am
is absolutely right when he said and asserted correctly that putin would have far preferred a hillary clinton presidency. putin would have benefited far greater from an america that was weak, that deemphasized its military, and did not believe in its sovereignty the way that our president does. putin would have benefited far greater from a woman in office whose family ran a foundation that essentially was a special interest and pedaling foundation and cash machine for around the world. and i think that's what's lost here is that all of this russia hysteria and russia obsession really highlights the selective outrage and the selective outcry of a media that is bent on bringing the trump administration down.
5:07 am
steve: i'm fascinated by this, michelle. all of a sudden started looking into this russian lawyer. how did you get here? what are you doing? it turns out she got here, she had to get a visa to allow her to come to this country to begin with. before she set up this meeting, which actually the theme of the meeting that don jr. talked about, she actually reflected that. she went to a documentary about this act, and then she went to a hearing about russia american relations. but she's only here because the last attorney general loretta lynch. loretta lynch allowed her to be here, and i just talked to one lawmaker who said this is extremely rare. what's going on here? >> yes. exactly, brian. this is the question. where are all of the conspiracy mongerrers for how this woman got into the country in the first place. and of course, we had a report in the hill, john sullivan was one of the good reporters on this talking about loretta

lynch. granting the special visa. and then, of course, immigration parole. because once her visa was expiring, she was begging the administration to stay even longer. and then it's not even clear now how it is that she was still around in the country when this meeting with donald trump jr. took place. and i think that that is -- that raises larger questions about the obama administration's immigration policies. and the kind of people they let into this country and why. ainsley: michelle, we had a panel of moms, i interviewed them in the first hour, and they were saying brian had nothing to do with them. so we talked to them. they said they don't care about the russia, russia -- or the majority of them say that the russia thing is not something they're talking about when they're sitting down at the dinner table with their family. what are you hearing? and what do you think are the most important issues for the american people?
5:09 am
>> ainsley, i'm hearing the same kinds of things, and i'm so glad we're finally getting this perspective in the media about what people outside of the coastal bubbles are actually concerned with about. those bread and butter issues. the issues that donald trump has been trying to get into the headlines that the antitrump media doesn't want to talk about. jobs, education, overregulation, the ever increasing intrusion of the federal government into our lives. i think it would also be interesting to have a focus group -- they probably have to be anonymous -- of actual people in homeland security and intelligence. and what they consider the biggest threats to america. the exstennel threats to our country, whether it's jihad or north korea or any other country that had been medaling in our affair that pose much greater threats.

5:18 am
jacket on because you are are blue collaring it. can you give us details that are going to be in this bill? >> well, we said all along, brian, that we need to stabilize the insurance markets because insurance is fleeing because they're losing money under obamacare. we're going to be sure that people with preexisting conditions are protected. we're going to do everything we can to get premiums done and indeed under the preliminary plan would go down by about 30% in a few years. and then we need to make sure that we put medicaid, the safety net for low income americans under a sustainable path. those are the sustainable four principles. >> what about the $46 billion for opioid. is that something we can see in there? >> that's going to be an additional piece of the bill that you'll see ruled out this morning, i believe. there seems to be a growing consensus that this is a epidemic we need to address. so we'll be taking steps to address it in the nah very aggressive way.

brian: rand paul was just on with us, and he really is upset with the bill that you guys are about to present. he says one of the things that boars him most is going to be 200 billion-dollar payout to insurance companies. you say those are tax credits for people to buy insurance. here's a little bit more about his objections are. >> i think we can offer something better than obamacare. what i've been offering is there's 27 million people that were left behind by obamacare who have no insurance currently. what i've been offering is a plan that would offer insurance to all of them and at a cheaper price. let every person in this country, plumbers, welders, let them join in so that they can get group insurance at a cheaper price, but you have to believe in freedom. you have to believe that leaving people alone will bring the market price down. brian: that is not included in your bill. why not? >> well, if senator paul can show me 49 other votes for his bill, then i would be all for it. but, unfortunately, the practicality is we have to
5:20 am
pass a bill. and if you vote "no" on this bill, it essentially is a vote for obamacare because that's what we're going to be left with. brian: real quick, on this whole u.s. russia thing, you believe this isn't about president trump and russia. this is about u.s. verse russia. in what respect? >> well, i firmly believe that putin was trying to interfere with our election. he expected hillary clinton to win. that didn't turn out that way. but this is not about personalities, which is why the mainstream media wants to make it. this is against russia, against the united states. always has been, always will be. and that's what we ought to be focusing on and protecting our elections and institutions from. brian: the president's over in france, he hopes you'll get something going, voting next week, and you believe the vote will take place next week. senator, if it does pass, you'll deserve a lot of the credit. and if it doesn't, a lot of the blame. that's part of leadership. senator, thanks so much for joining us. >> thanks, brian. brian: straight ahead, paid a tearful tribute to the her

5:25 am
>> before she left to go to work, she came into my doorway, and she said i love you. i'm going to work now. and she came, and she gave me a hug. she gave me a really big, tight hug. and i said, oh, i love you, mom. ainsley: joining us now is officer's daughter and the ceo of tunnel to towers foundation frank who lost his brother in 9/11. the foundation has stepped up in a major way to help genesis and her family. but first, genesis wants to tell us about her mom. genesis, thank you for being strong enough to be here and to speak on her behalf. tell us, first of all, about that day when you found out this terrible news. >> the day that i found out, it was 2:30 in the morning, and a police officer, he came to my door, and he said that my mother was in the hospital
5:26 am
and that she got hurt. and when i heard that, i thought, oh, maybe, you know, it's nothing major and maybe a car accident, maybe it was on the street or something. but just after i walked out of the door, a lot of anxiety had come, and i thought, well, maybe this is something she can't recover from. maybe this is something more serious. and the entire time when i went to the hospital, it was just scary. that day was scary. it was probably the worst day of my life. ainsley: i'm sure. you go to the hospital, and she's still alive at this point? >> i go to the hospital, and she's not. she is on life support, so she's unconscious and on life
5:27 am
support. but her vitals are still going. and i was in there when they lost her. ainsley: you were able to be there with her when she took her final breath? >> yeah. in her last moments, i was with her. ainsley: did you have a message in the room with her? did you talk to hardwar? >> i held her hand, and i said mom, you're strong, don't go. please don't leave, and i prayed over her. i said a prayer, and i told her that i love her. and i love her a lot and i don't want her to leave us. ainsley: i know we talked on the break, and this was her calling. she loved being a police officer. tell us more about her. >> obviously, her profession was important. but she was more than that. she was really funny, she was
5:28 am
incredibly hilarious, she was really smart, she was very well spoken, well read. she was super positive and smiley. she always knew how to block out the negativity. you know, she taught my siblings that we should never allow people to bring the negativityity towards us. but we didn't need that sort of, like, just bad energy. and that's how she likes to keep our household happy, light, and fresh because that's what she was and still is happy, light, and fresh and bubbly. ainsley: is this when the twins were born? you have twin brothers and sisters. peter and delilah. how are they doing? >> you know, they're taking it really hard because we were all super close to her. we were in love with her. we had a very strong relationship. our tiny family, it was a strong tightly in it family that we had and that we still have.
5:29 am
but just like me, we're taking it day by day. and, of course, there is, you know, the waves of emotion that come up when, you know, we're -- when the reality starts to settle in that we won't see her again. ainsley: well, you were so strong, and you look so much like her. you have that beautiful smile. both of you are gorgeous. i was curious to find out when i heard she was a single mother, what happens to the twins. are you going to raise them? >> i'm going to be here for them. now i've taken on that role of protector and defender. ainsley: you've probably been a second mom to them because you're 20 years old. >> yeah. she's been doing it for a while. ainsley: frank, we want to bring you in because you're doing some amazing things to help the family. tell us what you're doing and why you have a heart for them? >> well, i have a heart for them because when you see a police officer just senselessly murdered, assassinated for no reason other than they're a police officer and how much it has changed their lives forever, that our foundation knows all about that, and my brother was
5:30 am
taken in an instant. so we know it's important to help families going through this. we want to take some financial burden off of them. we want to make sure that their immediate housing needs are taken care of, but we want to set up a trust fund for them because you know what? >> education was paramount to my mother. >> and wanted a certain quality of life for her children, and we want to help make sure that that dream becomes her reality. so we're raising money tunnel to towers.org. it's important that the whole country comes together when they see something like this. we did something, you helped us with the dallas police officers in des moines, iowa. and of course ramos, the first ones here in 2014 were assassinated, you guys helped out. so tunnels to towers.org. it makes a difference. tell the families that we're standing tall with them. ainsley: and we did put a link to your website on our website. for the people out there watching, we have the most generous viewers.
5:31 am
we all want to help you. your mom gave up her life for the community that she loved. and as a community, we want to help you. what do you need? obviously, you need money for school, housing, to take care of the twins. >> we need support, but we need support everywhere. and support in all senses of the word. i'm sorry. ainsley: you're doing great, honey. you're so strong. you're doing great. well, we want you to know that we love you here at fox. all of our viewers love law enforcement, men and women in blue. god bless you, and your mother would be so proud of you. i love that you said we were in love with her. every mother would love their child to say that, so it seems she was just a phenomenal person and mom. thank you for being with us. thank you, frank, for your generosity. we'll be right back i have the jefferson nose right there on the front of my face. when i think about being related to thomas jefferson,

5:36 am
turns out the more we learn about the russian lawyer, sounds like she was a lobbyist, she was trying to do something about russian adoption, but she was also representing this guy who was involved in money laundering scheme in a big court case here in the united states. >> yeah. and the judge her emergency parole could be extended for a week, and she stays in the country another six months, in the course of which she's sitting in the front row at congressional hearings. she's going to washington cocktail party schmoozing with congressmen. she overstayed her emergency parole by six months. now, i'm an immigrant to your great land, and i wish u.s. immigration were as extraordinary relax and generous with me. brian: what is it like to extend your visa like that? >> well, they didn't extend it. they screwed up. what's interesting is she's a person of interest whose
5:37 am
privilege to remain in this country was extended, explicitly at the request of a judge. so this isn't some computerized visa form. this is all hand scrutinized and, yet, they let this person stay in the country overstay for six months. now, for democrats saying, oh, she's putin's best buddy, she's this kgb honey trap. brian: or her dad is somehow the kremlin. >> yeah. and close kremlin ties. steve: and loretta lynch. >> yeah. in that case, why is loretta lynch saying here's a pass for a week. come back and check with us six years time. ainsley: donald trump jr. met with her because he thought she had information about hillary clinton when her dad was running against hillary. but there's word now that the dnc could be investigated because they had the same thing and had connections with ukraine. >> right. ainsley: you heard about this? >> yeah. and actually, their connection -- they actually -- that's not an unofficial thing.
5:38 am
i mean, family members meeting with somebody just because some contact in this case arranges a meeting at trump tower. this is actually the official body of the democratic party is meeting on ukrainian territory in washington to get the goods on u.s. citizens. and actually took paul manafort out of the campaign with their collusion. their collusion had real results. i mean, donald trump jr. goes to this meeting with some goofball washed up music publicist and some russian lawyer who's in the country illegally and doesn't speak the lingo, and he's -- he concludes these are time wasters, and he's out of there. brian: the line is that russia wants to support president trump. almost seems like a bad episode of "house of cards." >> no. that's true. but the guy who said that is a -- you know, is a -- what
5:39 am
they call in ireland a chancer. she's just one of these guys who shows up, and he's biding himself up. so if he met you, he would say, yeah, it's great to see you, brian. i'm really tight with salad. it's terrific. any time you want to get ahold of salad, you just come by, and me and salad will set up a meeting. so in reality, he represents a washed up pop star who's only a pop star because his dad is a z lis list oligarch. >> but what he said got him the meeting. where's the dirt? there's no dirt. and he said you know what? we're not interested in talking about the thing you're lobbying on. get out. >> exaly. the ukrainian thing, theynd actually put it together, and they took paul manafort out of the campaign. so the democrat ukrainian collusion had consequences. and the don jr. wacky russian
5:40 am
lawyer overstaying her visa collusion went nowhere. steve: i'm sure when the mainstream media finds out about that story, they're going to go wall-to-wall. ainsley: right. no more russia, russia, russia. it will be ukraine, ukraine, ukraine; right? brian: he's got to do his job effectively. will go through all the campaigns, go through your computers because you're hurting the agenda of the united states of america. this is not just about you. >> no. i think you're right. i mean, they should just dump everything. because actually, just to go back to the u.s. immigration, the best way to get u.s. immigration off your back is always to declare. if you cross the border and say are you bringing anything back from canada? yeah, i have half of a doughnut i haven't finished. i don't have any laws. anything they've got, you know, with a minor accountant in kazakhstan, a software designer, just get it all out
5:41 am
there. get it all out there. steve: meanwhile, our president is in france and, of course, over here everybody is talking about the russia connection. but generally, the mainstream media loves lefty guy like mr. macron, so that's going to be an interesting thing going on. >> yeah. he's a cy-fair. no one actually knows what he believes. in that sense, he's less -- insanely less than let's say justin trudeau. and i wouldn't be surprised if he and trump don't find some points in common. and don't forget from the french point of view, they had a disaster last year. 86 people die in this truck attack in nice. and actually, the president of the united states showing up to be with them a year later is actually quite important to them. >> i hear personally that they have hit it off, and i also hear that the french are not comfortable tight with the germans, that they do want the counterweight of the u.s., and he sees that. >> yeah. and actually, he is -- the point about macron,
5:42 am
he's not really a lefty, he's sort of a technicrat and in that sense, he's not as other european leaders. steve: are you saying it's the art of the deal with him too? >> yeah. i think they could forge a relationship. when trump is back flapping with justin trudeau and angela merkel, they really don't get along, but i think he could have a relationship with macron. ainsley: we'll have to watch. thank you. >> it was great to see you. oh, yeah, that's my line. great to see you, brian. sorry. i should be more like that. great to see you, brian. brian: i just want a again win salutation. that's all i ask. think the mainstream media will change? think about. it's the president that has to change. he's here to make that case. as moms, we send our kids out into the world, full of hope.

5:47 am
hey, steve. steve: thank you so much, jillian. russia, russia, russia. mainstream media continues. columnist for the new york post michael goodwin joins us right now. so drip, drip, drip is the way this is going all along. a little news here. all along where they're trying to make it look like this was the dirtiest white house in the history of white house. >> right. and the worst part of it is, steve, we have now seen the future, and it looks a lot like the present and the past, which is that this endless cycle of the attempts to bring down the president and the president and his team making numerous mistaking that fuel the fire. and so just keeps repeating itself. one incident after another, and the unfortunate part is that it really does detract over time from the presidency itself to where it gets wigglinged down, the optimism drip, drip, drips away, and you have the sense that the country's business is being neglected.
5:48 am
steve: sure. after the president had a very successful g20 summit last week in europe, he comes back home, boom. new york times, and you write in your column blunted whatever good feeling the president had. >> yeah. the times used that as casual, so they had nothing to do with it; right? but, look, there is an attempt to bring him down. i mean, i think we should be clear about that. the president should be clear about that. this is not a game. this is a serious effort to overturn the election. steve: sure so the president is never going to get a fair shake from the white house press core or the mainstream media. so what should he do? >> look, i think he has to be a good president. and i think if he does that -- >> i think he's trying. >> well, of course, but i think he has to get things done. and that means working with congress. and every time he makes a mistake, such as using twitter to settle a personal feud or whatever, then i think that republicans and n congress get skittish because they put -- and then they pull away, and it gets harder to get anything done. so i think his behavior does
5:49 am
