[chanting u.s.a.] ♪ ♪ the best day of my life ♪ my life ♪ steve: live from washington, d.c., on this wednesday, which is joel bolton's birthday. how many years have you been with the show or at fox? brian: 17 years. ainsley: gosh i thought you were 17 years old. you worked here your whole life. steve: today the state of the union is chilly. 17 degrees. feels like 1. so cold on the roof that our printer actually froze. somehow ladies and gentlemen, we have three hours of telecasting right here. brian: big story the attorney pusheton nor toner.
pushes back. 115 applause lines. are you referring to the beginning of the year two of the trump administration? ainsley: you know how many times the word america was used in that speech? brian: how many times? ainsley: 82 times. steve: that's fantastic. i thought the line of the night are americans are dreamers, too. ainsley: i thought so, too. steve: he started the speech by telling unbelievable personal stories of people who were in the gallery and we will hear some of those in a moment. it was clearly after one year a victory lap. here is the president talking about how america under him is winning. let's begin tonight by recognizing that the state of our union is strong because our people are strong. [cheers and applause] we have created 2.4 million new jobs.
unemployment claims have hit a 45 year low. african-american unemployment stands at the lowest rate ever recorded. [cheers and applause] the stock market has smashed one world after another, gaining $8 trillion and more in value. we enacted the biggest tax cuts and reforms in american history. [applause] i recognize jerusalem as the capital of israel. one year later i am proud to report that the coalition to defeat isis has liberated very close to 100 percent of the terror tore. territory. my duty and the sacred duty of every elected official in this chamber is to defend americans and their right to the american dream.
because americans are dreamers, too. there is nothing we cannot achieve as long as we have confidence in our values. faith in our citizens, and trust in our god. we will never fail. [chanting u.s.a.] steve: u.s.a. brian: i thought the chant of u.s.a. was great. i also thought, too to speak for an hour and 15 minutes is tough especially scripted when the president is used to speaking off the cuff. the pacing, the way he delivered it. not to be too is h sedate. not too be too high not to underreact people overright on the right and no one reacting on the left. look down, guys what are you doing? i just said like america or our 104 times. we 129 times. the president that's known to be very confident used i
only 29 times. steve: you compare that to barack obama ohio think in the 2010 state of the union address used the word i close to 100 times. but it was the way he told the story. it wasn't just a laundry list of in his estimation how america was winning, but, instead, he also interwove all these personal stories. you know, ever since ronald reagan, people -- presidents has invited guests who sat in the first lady's box with them starting with lenny the hero from that flight air canada flight. but last night we heard so much about the people and it was so interesting. ainsley: right out of the gate he started telling some emotional stories. he talked a lot about immigration and used some of the families to say this is why immigration is so important to our country. it's to keep the bad guys out, to keep the drugs from coming over our borders. he highlighted two families. we had one family, one mom on set with us. steve: evelyn. ainsley: who lost their daughters to ms-13.
hyou went out to long island to tell their stories a few months ago. these little girls were 16 years old walking on the side of the street and brutally attacked and killed by ms-13 drug dealers. there are their parents right there. the guy on the right, one the fathers could barely hold it together. it was so sad. all of them were crying. then the president said actually, let's listen to what the president said about these families. >> for decades, open borders have allowed drugs and gangs to pour into our most vulnerable communities. evelyn rodriguez, freddy cuevas, elizabeth alvarado and robert mickens. their two teenage daughters kayla cuevas and miss i nisa mickens. neither of them came home. 10 members of the savage ms-13 gang have been charged
with kayla and nisa's murders. many of these gang members took advantage of glaring loopholes in our laws to enter the country as illegal, unaccompanied alien minors. everyone in america is grieving for you. please stand. thank you very much. [applause] we cannot imagine the depths of that kind of sorrow. qui make sure that other families never have to endure this kind of pain. steve: at one point when the president did first start to talk about immigration and then shifted to ms-13, there were groans and murmurs from the democrats who could not get behind the fact, apparently, that ms-13 is terrible and killed these families. brian: el salvador is where they are located and
honduras. they formulate and supposed to get into this country and reek havoc and get money and sell drugs. they spread out. i think it was virginia where they killed one guy and cut his heart out. he wants to make that a focus and wants to show progress. and the other thing i thought was so important. putting together a speech like, this sometimes you get through a list. did i this, i'm going to do. this did i this, i'm going to do this. he did not go more than six minutes without showing an illustration to his policy. this is another example. remember when he was talking about north korea and the brutality of that regime. ainsley: man who stood up in the crowd who was honored and he grew up in north korea. he held up his crutches because when he was a little boy, the dictator of north korea was starving his family and his brothers and sisters. he was fighting for food. he went to a train and tried to steal some coal off the train so that he could trade it for food to feed his family. he was so famished he fell asleep or passed out on the train tracks and woke up with the train running over his limbs. he did not have any pain
medicine when he was going through that and then was also tortured by the dictator, by that evil regime. those are the crutches that he used to heal and to get back to good health. brian: by the way, his dad was tortured to death. steve: also auto warmbier's parents were there. another highlight was the albuquerque officer who addicted the little baby from the parents who were addicted to heroin. there were some stories it, wasn't about me, me, me, donald trump. it was about you, you, you, america. so many times the news about what has happened to our economy is food. we put together a montage when the democrats wouldn't stand for good news. news good for all americans seemingly. walls it political? you be the judge. >> i call upon all of us to set aside our differences, to seek out common ground,
and to summon the unity we need to deliver for the people. this is really the key. these are the people we were elected to serve. [applause] hispanic american unemployment has also reached the lowest levels in history. [cheers] preston's reverence for those who have served our nation reminds us of why we salute our flag and why we proudly stand for the national anthem. [cheers and applause] in america, we know that faith and family, not government and bureaucracy, are the center of personal life. the motto is in god we trust. [applause]
ainsley: i can't believe the democrats didn't stand when he said this is why we stand for the national anthem. he told the little boy preston sitting next to the first lady and preston put 40,000 american flags on graves because his grandfather was a world war ii vet. went to visit his grave stone and said we need to do better. this looks terrible. and he personally put carnations and flags on those graves. and the president mentioned that and said that's why we stand for the national anthem and the democrats still remained seated. brian: a lot of people said that was a shot at the nfl. here is a list of some of the issues. some of the issues that the democrats chose not to stand for. most joe manchin did stand a few times by himself. tax reform. national anthem, god, veterans healthcare. fair trade which i think they were for. the stock market, i thought they were pro-stock market, infrastructure, i thought they were going to do a deal with republicans on that. the deal for dreamers, which is most republican presidents could dream of giving up in initial bargaining point.
military funding which i thought everyone agreed we need to increase and low african american unemployment. steve: obviously a strategy by the democrats. big building behind us clearly they don't want the president or the republicans to get any credit. they don't want to show unity in the building. but, when you actually put them all in the same room and you see people clapping for god and that whole list of things right there and you see another party not clapping, it's like really? really you can't stand for that? you can't stand for the flag, the anthem? brian: two things have got to get done. infrastructure and some type of immigration reform. three things. and they got to get a budget passed. you need 60 votes. at some point they common sense coalition led on the left by joe manchin has got to do something. he stood a lot. he is going to be joining us a lot. steve: that's one. that's not 60. looks like the party of no. sorry, mr. president. can't help you out. brian: going to need about
10. steve: what did you think of last night's festivities here at the capitol? email us at friends firstname.lastname@example.org. not what the media heard. >> one thing is clear, john, did he not unify that chamber tonight. >> george, i have never seen anything like it. >> very tough saying immigrants are basically killers. >> david brody is here with the real headline of the state of the union next. jason chaffetz, lee carter, lee carter and dan bongino coming up. (whispering) with the capital one venture card, you'll earn unlimited double miles on every purchase, every day. not just airline purchases. think about all the double miles

ainsley: president trump calling for strength and unity during the state of the union address. brian: will he get it? the media must have missed that message. steve: here to discuss is chief political correspondent for the christian broadcasting network and host of cbn's faith nation david brody. what did you think? >> i will tell you what, a couple things. first of all, this america, he kept talking about how i love america. that's what it was i love america 82 times. and when i say 82 times. he literally said the word
america 82 times. steve: americans are dreamers, too. >> that was nice on the side there. i thought that was very crucial. then of course you look at the media. they don't understanding it they have never been able to understand the connection between what he is saying about this pro-america message and not just the base but middle class americans that democrats and independents as well. that's key. brian: some of their response is fascinating. cbs does a poll what do you think of it 75% liked it "the washington post" put out a headline briefly that said something optimistic and they got blasted and they changed their headline. here is a look at some of how the media reacted to the speech. >> one thing is pretty clear, john, i he did not unify that chamber tonight. >> george, i have never seen anything like it. right now the democrats have basically run for the exits. >> it almost got ugly. very tough about saying immigrants are basically killers. >> also a particularly gloomy speech. he didn't mention the word carnage but he talked a lot about carnage. it was a sad speech there at
the end. and did not unify. steve: at least she didn't cry that time. >> right. i grew up jewish and everything. there is always the a level and olkavolt. nbc was off the rails last night. they could have been broadcasting this from the russia team room. steve: you mean russia, russia, russia. >> talking about mueller as is he taking the podium. ainsley: what does she mean carnage? only carnage comes to mind is what ms-13 did to those two young girls. >> that's exactly right which gave him a compassionate moment last night for sure. steve: david, the other networks we highlighted out for the president with long knives, that must mean did he a good job. >> right. so obviously it's a success. i will say it was interesting. someone on another network, an analyst talked about how this president was selling sweet candy with poison in it. steve: what? >> what in the world was he talking about.
so the question is what was the poison? referring to immigration is the poison. i don't know, 1 million more dreamers than the democrats even asked for is the poison of pay child tax credit? talk about bipartisan. infrastructure. this is not a conservative talking point. brian: you can't argue the president gave a lot on the initial proposal on immigration. and he also -- the economy is doing well. don't talk down the economy if people are actually doing well. you lose correct. >credibility.>> great part of th came good time for him. 401(k), stock market. all of that also we are doing pretty well against isis. steve: thanks for coming up on the chilly roof. brian: thanks for yesterday, too. it may have been the line of the night. president trump on immigration. >> my duty is to defend americans and their right to the american dream. because americans are dreamers, too. brian: it got a standing
ovation from republicans and what did democrats at home think? and some of the dreamers in the audience? lee carter has brand new dials. she's cold. steve: hey, lee. >> hey. ♪ later on when i got home ♪ fro hey, what are you guys doing here? we've been helping you prepare and invest for retirement since day one. why would we leave now? because i'm retired now. so? we're voya. we stay with you to and through retirement... ...with solutions to help provide income throughout. so, you'll still be here to help me make smart choices?
♪ ainsley: good morning to you from new york city. we'll be back with more on the state of the union live from washington in just a few minutes. but, first, some other stories making headlines this morning. the justifiable department launching an internal investigation into whether ousted deputy fbi director andrew mccabe slowed down the hillary clinton email probe. "the washington post" reports mccabe knew about emails on anthony weiner's laptop at least three weeks before james comey notified congress about them. those emails sent to wiener's laptop by his wife and clinton aid huma abedin.
mccabe stepped down from his post on monday. the president caught on a hot mike vowing to release a classified intelligence memo. >> don't worry. 100 percent. >> there you have it, president trump speaking to congressman jeff duncan after the state of the union. the fisa memo reportedly reveals surveillance abuses by the justice department and fbi during the 2016 election. hillary clinton explaining her decision not to fire a campaign aid accused of sexual harassment 10 years ago. the failed presidential candidate publishing a statement on facebook minutes before the state of the union. clinton explaining that at the time she didn't think firing berne strider was the best solution to the problem. she stopped short of apologizing but says she wouldn't make the same decision again. now down to washington, d.c. good morning, ainsley. ainsley: good morning to you, jillian. thanks so much. you have been hearing the analyst reaction to the president's state of the union speech. steve: now it's time to hear from you, the people.
brian: president and partner with maslansky and partners is lee carter here looking at instant analysis from what the people thought at home. welcome, lee. >> glad to be here. brian: one of the most impactful statements was about the dreamers. >> that's right. brian: dreamers brought in by democrats in the gallery at the same time the president made his dissemination. >> i think you will be surprised by the reaction here. ainsley: the line that everyone loved was americans are dreamers, too. >> great. ainsley: listen to this and watch the dials. >> sacred duty of every elected official in this chamber is to defend americans, to protect their safety, their families, their communities and their right to the american dream. because americans are dreamers, too. ainsley: i should say everyone loved it but democrats did give it a middle of the road. their line is a lot lower typically. >> there was not a single moment last night where the democrats went to the floor.
we have seen over and over sometimes that blue line you can't see it republicans gave it an a. independents an a. democrats a c. this was really really a surprise to me. i didn't expect democrats to respond so favorably and they did. steve: the headline for me is the number of independents that are back with the president and the republicans. watch the line when the president was talking about the economy. watch the independents. they are up there with the republicans. >> the great news for americans 401(k) retirement pension and college savings accounts have gone through the roof. and just as i promised, the american people from this podium 11 months ago, we enacted the biggest tax cuts and reforms in personal history. >> you can see there republicans, independents, pretty much in balance with each other, giving an a minus. democrats gave it a d plus. that's not that bad considering that democrats don't support this tax plan. but we have seen a huge, you
know, improvement in the public opinion on tax reform from a third that approved it when it was passed. now to nearly half of americans saying it's a good thing. i think we will continue to see that to rise. brian: now the personal brackets change and people bringing home more money. democrats make a choice here. it doesn't make a sentence to run down the economy. >> it doesn't make sense. the fact that the democrats stayed seated during that portion does not work in their favor. american people are feeling more and more optimistic about the pocketbooks. ainsley: the president highlighted little boy who put flags on graves after he had visited his grandfather's grave at arlington, which was a really touching moment. he was sitting next to melania. you can see him there with the red tie. cute little boy. after the president told his story, he said that is why we stand for the national anthem. watch the polls. watch how the folks that you polled, lee, reacted to that. >> preston's reverence for those who have served our nation reminds us of why we salute our flag, why we put
our hands on our hearts for the pledge of allegiance. and why we proudly stand for the national anthem. brian: that was looked at as a shot at the nfl. people thought why did he do that? others loved it. >> they loved that. that story about the little boy republicans a plus. independents a minus and democrats a c. steve: for them to be drifting back towards the republicans, what does that say to you? >> it says to me that the democrats are going to have it tougher than they expect. i think the democrats think it's going to be easy for them in the mid terms and hoping they are thinking in 2020. it's not. those independents are going to make it up. they are coming back. he lost 12% approval among independents here, seeing that that's starting to shift. i think that's going to help. brian: one thing we know, lee, it is january. so much changes every day let alone every season. let alone 8 months.
ainsley: if the economy continues to do well. that's what americans care about. >> that's right. this speech really made people feel optimistic that hadn't felt so recently. i think he did a great job. steve: thank you so much for staying up late and doing the dials. >> any time. ainsley: thank you. steve: meanwhile, president trump making a break from president obama when he said this. >> we must be clear terrorists are not merely criminals. they are unlawful enemy combatants. ainsley: he is also keeping gitmo open, he said. dan bongino is here to react. plus jason chaffetz on the behind the scenes moments that you didn't see what actually happened in the chamber. he is going to tell us coming up. steve: those guys need coats. ♪ there's nothing holding me back ♪ there's nothing holding me

i'm trying to manage my a1c, then i learn type 2 diabetes puts me at greater risk for heart attack or stroke. can one medicine help treat both blood sugar and cardiovascular risk? i asked my doctor. she told me about non-insulin victoza®. victoza® is not only proven to lower a1c and blood sugar, but for people with type 2 diabetes treating their cardiovascular disease,
victoza® is also approved to lower the risk of major cv events such as heart attack, stroke, or death. while not for weight loss, victoza® may help you lose some weight. (announcer) victoza® is not for people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. do not take victoza® if you have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer, multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you are allergic to victoza® or any of its ingredients. stop taking victoza® and get medical help right away if you get a lump or swelling in your neck or symptoms of a serious allergic reaction such as rash, swelling, difficulty breathing, or swallowing. serious side effects may happen, including pancreatitis. so stop taking victoza® and call your doctor right away if you have severe pain in your stomach area. tell your doctor your medical history. gallbladder problems have happened in some people. tell your doctor right away if you get symptoms. taking victoza® with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. common side effects are nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, decreased appetite, indigestion, and constipation. side effects can lead to dehydration, which may cause kidney problems. change the course of your treatment.
ask your doctor about victoza®. >> >> tonight, i am extending an open hand to work with members of both parties, democrats and republicans to protect our citizens of every background, color, religion and creed. my duty and the sacred duty of every elected official in this chamber is to defend americans, to protect their safety, their families, their communities and their right to the american dream. because americans are dreamers, too. steve: well, this morning, when dan bongino and i were huddled around the coffee pot in the other tent, dan, you said that was the line of the night. >> that was it that was it. if that was the democrat state of the union speech the line would have been americans are deplorables,
too. the democrats have owned us for decades on messaging. finally we were just talking about this. donald trump has turned the corner and learned how to talk. we are not talking about 401(k)s in a methadone clinic anymore. we are talking like real people talk. americans are dreamers. americans are back. and the democrats will stick with the deplorable stuff. we'll stick with the dreamer stuff. ainsley: you were saying during the commercial donald trump is teaching americans how to fight, how to win. not be a dormant. he let the government shut down because he felt so strongly about immigration tax reform done and he is winning. >> it's not who donald trump is. it's how he communicates that the left still doesn't get. i was having a conversation last night. someone said to me, you know, it's interesting that trump is richer than mitt romney yet nobody treats trump like the rich guy. it's not about his money. it's about how he talks and relates to people. nobody cares that he is worth -- brian: how do we know that because he used to tell everybody i'm richer than
mitt romney. here is the other fact he brought up the numbers don't lie. black and hispanic unemployment is at all-time lows. but when that line was read, they didn't react. everyone sat on their hands, including julian castro and others. >> there were a lot of disgraceful moments last night. i'm a partisan actor. i don't claim to be down the middle. but have you had inner cities absolutely ruined. minority populations in inner cities. these are american citizens who lives have been disseminated by big government. finally donald trump of all people turns it around. black unemployment at historically low levels. and the congressional black caucus can't get up. is this a nonpartisan issue? >> they are upset with his comments charlottesville and upset what he said about dick durbin. >> are they upset about results? have you black men and women who are now in an employment environment and prosperous for their kids. we have been living in two americans. liberal america in inner cities and our america. donald trump has brought the two together.
steve: obviously the democrats made a political decision they wouldn't stand for anything that would make the president look good or make it look like they are united. and luis gutierrez actually left the chamber when people were chanting u.s.a. u.s.a. just got up and left. brian: is he running for president. >> of course. they never retire they retire up. what happened there which was interesting because he mentioned also standing for the national anthem. and who stands? only the republicans. you would think the democrats just for that would say okay, we can all agree on that. steve: the president did sign an executive order making sure that people understand that gitmo is going to be open for business during his term. he also said this about terrorists. >> terrorists who do things like place bombs in civilian hospitals are evil. when possible, we have no choice but to annihilate them when necessary we must be able to detain and question them. but we must be clear
terrorists are not merely criminals, they are unlawful enemy combatants. brian: so that means they go to gitmo now. now my question is the next time somebody, an isis member runs over someone in a bike path or tries to blow up people at the port authority with a pipe bomb, do we put them in gitmo or are we going to keep putting them in our prisons. >> obviously depends who it is. if it's an american citizen it's not going to be an option. this the is kind of language americans expect from the commander-in-chief. these are terrorists. we are not negotiating. we kill these people because they want to kill us first. we don't live in a moral vacuum. we live in a very, very odd dangerous time. their lives need to be terminated. they want to kill us. this is how people expect the commander-in-chief to talk. brian: they want to be killed because they want to go to the next level. >> not sending them to sandals for vacation anymore. ainsley: folks really liked
that line. what did you think of the democrats choosing joe kennedy to make the speech after the president because you know a democrat makes a speech or opposing party makes a speech after the president makes the state of the union. >> maybe they will pick chelsea clinton next. talk about a weak bench. they have nobody. look at what they have. bernie sanders is a devout socialist. they have elizabeth warren who just doubled down on the you didn't build that what's next? steve: go ahead and take a look at the sound bite. here is mr. kennedy talking about the past year under mr. trump. >> many have spent the last year anxious, angry, afraid,. >> we are come barred with one false choice after another, bullies may land a punch, they may leave a mark, but they have never, not once in the history of our united states managed strength and spirit of a people united in defense of their future. ainsley: a lot of people are talking about the vaseline on his lips.
steve: chapstick. brian: obviously the kennedy resemblance was there student under elizabeth warren. well delivered though, right? >> you know the difference john f. kennedy actually engaged in one of the largest take home pay tax cuts in american history. that is not this kennedy. as a matter of fact, john f. kennedy would be a republican today. that he was the irony of that speech. brian: i do want to bring us to the "the washington post" one of the stories on the front page the internal justice department probes andrew mccabe's role in the final weeks of the 2016 election. the inspector general wants to know why he sat on anthony weiner's laptop emails for three weeks. where's this going? and who wrote this story? >> andy mccabe is in a world of trouble right now. let's be clear, andy mccabe is number two at the fbi during two critical investigations. the trump investigation, the ci investigation, counter intelligence investigation and the investigation into hillary clinton. what he is going to have to answer for is how did hillary clinton skate and how did mike flynn get prosecuted based on an
interview on a false -- brian: who wrote this story? >> devlin barrett. brian: why does that matter? >> peter strzok involved intimately involved in this case texting paramour there lisa page and mentioned devlin barrett. brian: leaking to "the washington post." now is he writing the story. >> while he was at the "wall street journal." he was their source to leak it to. fascinating. steve: thank you very much for joining us two days in a row. >> two days in a row no sleep. i love you guys. brian: no under armor, t-shirts or heat. >> muscle. brian: absolutely. reaction to the president's address from corey lewandowski and david bossie. they only appear together. i don't know why. senator joe manchin will appear by himself. he has courage. as does newt gingrich from undisclosed location. steve: jason chaffetz was in the room for the state of the union. what happened behind the scenes that we didn't see? he will come in and spill the beans. live from washington, d.c. this is the state of the union post game show on "fox & friends." ♪

steve: absolutely. because you were right there. we had heard when the president was talking about dreamers and then shifted to ms-13 there was -- sounded like groaning. you said it wasn't just groaning, it was hissing? >> there were times where you could hear audibly hear hissing that was going on. ainsley: hissing? >> it was an absolute total embarrassment. the democrats you are talking about mom, god, apple pie and god r we trust. military. the democrats could not get up off their seat and clap their hands. brian: we heard the booing and brought up right here. let's look. >> open borders have allowed drugs and gangs to pour into our most vulnerable communities. they have caused the loss of many innocent lives. [boos] >> here tonight are two fathers and two mothers. their two teenage daughters,
kayla cuevas and lisa mickens were close friends on long island. >> that audio was not as bad as it was on the floor. i can tell you on the floor it was worse than that you are trying to focus on the president. you want to go and recognize the people, but at least off to your left at least from where i was sitting. brian: hiss and boos? >> how rare is that. >> it is rare. they had a script. it is the resist movement. it doesn't matter what the president says or how he does it and how dare the president actually do what he says. i sat on the floor for 8 years and listened to barack obama. but we were polite. we were nice. we stood and applaud. steve: you didn't stand and applaud every time. it's always partisan. >> yes. when you are recognizing first responders, ordinary americans who have done extraordinary things. when you're talking about the flag and in god we trust, of course, that's when the country needs to be united. it was pretty disgusting on the floor.
i would say a lot of members were sorely disappointed that they couldn't just be americans that night and show a little respect not just to the president but show respect to the world that we actually stand behind the men and women who make this country so great. ainsley: i know they are think guilty about election coming up in november and all the house members are up for re-election. and a third of the senators are up for re-election. >> yes. ainsley: and that's on their mind. when they don't stand when the president is talking about bonuses and our paychecks and people getting jobs and unemployment being lower than ever, does that back fire come november? >> hey, i think america got to seat difference. you know. if you are not standing and saluting our flag. if you are not standing recognized -- i had a chance afterwards to meet an american hero, you know, the army staff sergeant. i was able to go up there and shake his hand and thank him for his service. steve: there he is. >> in order to meet a true hero. how in the world can anybody
on that floor justify sitting on their hands and not collapse. brian: you say the attitude was up beat with republicans? >> oh, yeah. any time the republican gives a good speech it's good on the floor. ainsley: thanks for joining us. steve: two days in a row. ainsley: they were some of president trump's special guests last night. >> here tonight are steve staub and sandy keplinger of staub manufacturing. one of staub's employees, cory adams, is also with us tonight. and he's a great welder.

[applause] [chanting u.s.a.] brian: you know it was not an accident that the president brought up our enemies out there. talking about the iranian government but saluted the iranian people. he talked about the threat of north korea and how we're attacking that. and then he humanized it with the torture in which the people of north korea go through, especially one man in particular. ainsley: yeah. there was one man in the
audience. he told his story. and we're going to play a sound bite of that. before we do let's set it up and tell you what happened to this man. when he was a child, his family was starving because they were living under this dictator. steve: north korea. ainsley: under this regime in north korea. he goes to the train tracks and tries to steal coal off of one of the train cars. he was so famished that he passed out on top of the train tracks. a train ran over his limbs. he had several amputations without medications. he had to go to china to rehabilitate. he comes back to north korea and the north korean regime tortures him. then his brothers and sisters had a little bit of food and they were feeding him while he was getting better. meanwhile their growth was stunted because they had to give their brother their food. brian: they were eating dirt. exactly. listen to what the president said about that man as he was holding up his crutches. >> sung ho traveled thousands of miles on
crutches all across china and southeast asia to freedom. his father was caught trying to escape and was tortured to death. today he lives in seoul where he rescues other defectors. today he has a new leg but seong-ho, i understand you still keep those old crutches as a reminder of how far you've come. your great sacrifice is an inspiration to us all. please, thank you. [applause] [cheers and applause] steve: such a powerful image of him holding those crutches. you know, the president was able to do something last night that i don't know that i remember in modern times any president doing. and it was not so much about the dreams for the future, although the president made it very clear what he wants to do next, immigration,
infrastructure, things like that, unity. but he was able to tell the stories of people who are in america, ordinary americans, including what happened to the otto warmbier family what about the cop down in albuquerque they adopted that little baby girl whose mother was addicted to heroin and it goes on and on where people like them and the families that fell to losing a child through ms-13, these were stories that you want to hear the rest of. we have seen guests of the president before up in the first lady's box with him, but we haven't heard so much about them. the stories were so powerful. it wasn't so much about donald trump. it walls about these americans, ordinary americans and what they did. ainsley: yeah. this is the trump g.o.p. this is donald trump teaching americans that they can fight for what they believe in. and that they can win. he is doing this without being a door mat. he was pleading with
congress, he looked at the lawmakers and said if you are going to spend our tax dollars, make sure you are giving it to countries that support america. put america first. he really is winning. if you look at the tax reform, if you look at the memo being released where people who are doing wrong things, it's going to be revealed and he is shedding light on that. if you look at the democrats being defeated when the government shut down because he didn't want to give them what they wanted with daca. i mean, it's truly a different g.o.p. brian: right. if the president in year two can moderate his tone a little bit he will go a long way to maybe forcing the democrats to get involved. because, last night, the ones that did show and about 12 didn't, the minute it ended, they headed for the exits. but the series of things that they did not stand for are staggering from veterans healthcare to the stock market success, to infrastructure, to the deal for dreamers, to low african-american unemployment. here's an example. >> i call upon all of us to
set aside our differences, to seek out common ground, and to summon the unity we need to deliver for the people. this is really the key. these are the people we were elected to serve. [applause] hispanic american unemployment has also reached the lowest levels in history [applause] preston's reverence for those who are served our nation reminds us of why we salute our flag and why we proudly stand for the national anthem. [applause] in america, we know that faith and family, not government and bureaucracy, are the center of american life. the motto is in god we trust. [applause]
steve: you know, when we had jason chaffetz with us just about 10 minutes or so ago, he admitted, you know, there were times when he was a member of congress he didn't stand up every time. there was something unusual about it maybe it was the way it all got, i first noticed when the president was talking about the dreamers and then went to the ms-13 members and you could hear the groans. jason chaffetz said the democrats were actually hissing, which you just thought okay, well, i can kind of understand that you go down the list and brian detailed it so effectively there. why didn't they stand for that? why didn't they stand for god? ainsley: for god, for the military. steve: the anthem. ainsley: telling the story about a little boy putting flags and carnations down on graves at arlington and he said and that's why we stand for the national anthem. now, i understand if some people have a beef with the nfl and all of that. but he was talking about god and talking about our veterans and they still didn't stand up.
brian: a couple of things. at the end it was such powerful message, the democrats had to stand at the end. even it was pointed out by palmieri on another network it was difficult for the dems to stay seated with broad stroked patriotic comments. he thought he closed out pretty strongly. overall i wonder where we go from here. they have got to get a budget. they have got to get some type of daca fix along with the border security. and they have got to get an infrastructure thing going or else they might as well not show up for work. steve: after watching the democrats sit on their hands, i'm not very optimistic. it's one thing to make a political decision. you don't want to help the other party. at the same time, everybody is so dug in. and you could see it, it's one thing to read about it in the newspaper or online, but to see those images of nancy pelosi just kind of gritting her teeth deciding i'm not going to clap for that, we asked you what you thought. and we gotten toes of responses. ainsley: jim said i loved the speech. as a father and grandfather,
i loved the observation, american kids and dreamers are dreamers, too. indeed, when i see how hard my kids have worked, i applaud them getting a fair chance at success. brian: this for maureen. stood up and laapplauded. come on, democrats, be america first and democrats second. i just wish we could book a democrat and talk to them face to face. steve: i think we have got one coming up very shortly. well, he is right there. [laughter] steve: you will see who that is in just a moment. but, first. ainsley: coming up, this veteran got a seat at the state of the union thanks to congressman sean duffy and his wife rachel. so how was it that veteran and all the duffys are going to join us live coming up. brian: senator joe manchin just got on set. he doesn't even want an overcoat. good morning, joe. brian: west virginia guy. ♪ ♪

i tried everything i could. i worked with them. and i had some concerns about the debt that we're incurring or first time we have ever started out thinking there could be 1.5 trillion. i looked at basically history of how we have done tax reform. we have never started along those lines. i know it jump started. i'm hoping i'm wrong. i have said. this this is what i had to use in front of me and on top of that repeal of the mandate which i knew we had to fix for the healthcare lamar alexander has done a wonderful job. steve: luke at west virginia. there are a lot of people getting bonuses. their companies are going to be able to expand, buy new stuff and you are on the wrong side of that you look at what the president talked about yesterday, he talked about how we need some immigration reform, obviously. and oven working o you have been that for a while. take a look back at the things he has accomplished. >> steve, he and i have had this conversation, the president and i. i said i hope it works out. i think we could have had a permanent for the working
person, too. we are betting on the come the next administration is going to say. steve: tax cuts. >> no, no. i agree. brian: 40 seconds left. you have a common sense coalition. >> yes, i do. brian: boast hope of getting something done on infrastructure. should you had give people hope out. >> there i think we will give people help. we stopped the shut down and come together. 25 strong. evenly split, democrats and republicans that have set more in the last week working face to face than since i have been here seven years. steve: that's true great. >> more in the last week. so encouraging and so helpful. and we're starting to find out where's the breaking point? brian: you ended the shut down. >> well, susan collins is just a wonderful friend of mine. together we did in 2013. we will do it again. ainsley: senator, yes or no, will there be an immigration plan, a deal? >> there has to be. this country has to move forward. we cannot set back and let politics take over. ainsley: meet in the middle. >> republicans and democrats we're going to find the

post on monday. president caught on hot mike vowing to release a classified intelligence memo. >> release the memo. >> oh, yeah. don't worry. 100 percent. jillian: you heard it there president trump speaking to congressman jeff duncan after the state of the union. the memo reportedly abuses by the justice department and fbi during the 2016 election. and the worker who sent the false hawaii missile alert thought it was a real emergency and not just a drill. the alert creating statewide panic for 38 minutes before officials issued a correction. the head of hawaii's emergency management agency has taken full responsibility and has resigned. send it back down to you guys in washington. ainsley: all right. thank you so much, jillian. well, it all started with this tweet u.s.a. army veteran ricky taylor challenging congresswoman maxine waters to give him her seat at president trump's state of the union address after he heard that maxine waters was going to
skip the speech. steve: she never got back to him but thanks to invite from congressman sean duffy and his wife rachel who have a family that's screaming off camera right now. ricky's dream of attending the state of the union came true last night and he joins us live along with the duffy's. rickey, you were all dressed up. what was it like? >> oh, it was just phenomenal experience. and as for my tux i figured out how to stand out a little bit. steve: a tuxedo. >> oh, yeah. i was in a tux. ainsley: that's awesome. >> i had to stand out. it was a phenomenal experience. the president just to see him up there, i was kind of awe struck especially when he said that americans are dreamers, too. i thought i was going to go through the whole roof. i stood up. it was great. i had a great time. ainsley: what was the best part. >> the best part how patriotic the president is and how america first he is. and just to see, especially see like the whole republican side just all on
board with the president. i thought that whole thing was amazing. i can't say the same for the democrats. brian: are you and rachel on speaking terms because you stole her ticket. >> i said in exchange for the ticket you have to baby-sit the kids he said no way. he spent two tours in afghanistan. brian: these children? >> i did two tours and i'm not touching that. there is 8 of them. ainsley: let me tell you what happened behind the scenes. beautiful family. hey, kids. sean comes out here with his coffee. rachel comes out with a sippy cup. and they run and take it off stage. >> the differences between moms and dads. ainsley: that's right. steve: how did this all happen because you were watching "fox & friends." >> i was. i was in my kitchen. i called up sean did you see that too. i he said yeah i will give it to him. let's do it and here we are. brian: what's it like in the chamber. >> ricky coming all in suited up tux. this guy is killing us.
great. i thought the speech was fantastic. the energy and enthusiasm on our side to hear that message from the podium was raucous. it was disappointing, sad, this is all democrats have. they are going to sit down at some great american moment as the president was calling out some wonderful people, there they sit, just in protest, that's how lame their party has become. steve: sean, when you were a congressman under barack obama there were times you didn't stand. >> i didn't sit the whole speech. there are things that barack obama would say that i would agree with and i could applaud for that right? not everything. but democrats there is a whole section they just go we are going to sit down. >> we brought all our kids out to the inauguration for barack obama because it's an american moment. i think that's what ricky really did here. is he reminded everybody this isn't about republican. this isn't about, you know, democrat. the state of the union is about the union. ainsley: you talk about your background a lot. the president said hispanic
unemployment is at an all-time low. african-american up employment is at all -- time low. that's something all americans should stand for. that's wonderful. >> three time the amount of dreamers being offered citizenship should they agree to secure the border, it's an amazing offer and i think he laid it out really well. it will be hard for the hispanic community to say no to that. >> three time more in dreamers and calling him a racist. brian: rickey, the president also said we have got to break the caps on the defense spending and help secretary of state mattis. he said these -- department of education mattis he is dointhese-secretary ofdefense o. the place erupted. >> any time recognize service and their families. talking about the v.a. so many times guy to the v.a. i have 100 percent disability. so i go to the v.a. and, you know, can you see sometime they don't even care. but we're getting rid of
those people. can i see it on my side. and, you know, i think it's great. steve: of course, the reason you are here is because maxine waters says she wasn't going to use her seat. look in camera one and tell congresswoman maxine waters what she missed last night. >> you know, honestly what congresswoman maxine waters missed was, to me, one of the proudest moments for me to be an american, you know. to be able to talk about america first and veterans first, you know, when you have so many people so excited about being optimistic about america. it's just sad that her and some of the other democrats they don't seem to share that enthusiasm as a lot of us americans do. ainsley: rickey, you talk about optimism. i'm very optimistic that you are going to be a great father one day. can we give you one of these kids? [laughter] hey, margarita. look at this, ricky.
is she not adorable? >> state of the union.

[applause] [chanting u.s.a.] brian: you saw some democrats get up on that. it's the building they work. in how could they not be clapping for the capitol building. fox news contributor, former speaker of the house, good friends of ours newt gingrich here.
mr. speaker, welcome. >> good to be here. ainsley: spent a lot of time in that building. brian: would have you stood for that line. >> sure. even if a democrat said it. part of the art of the state of the union is to say things that guarantee that people have to stand and part of what you saw last night and my particular favorite minus letter today talks about speaker pelosi who i believe if you took all of the pictures of her last night and put them together in one package you would know why you wouldn't want her to be speaker again. i have never seen anybody so openly disgusted. ainsley: pursing her lips. >> she hated being there. steve: she looked like she was thinking do we stand for this. if she stood up, everybody else would stand up as well. going in, how does it work? as speaker, as leader of the party do you say okay, obviously we are opposing the president. let's not do any of that stuff. let's not clap too much. >> normally, actually, you both with clinton and with obama, the republicans would have said try not to break out and try not to be
negative because it's -- you have the whole country watching. the highest rated political event of the year. and so and then you saw that in the audience last night. you also saw by the way that independents and republicans loved the speech. steve: yep. >> democrats generally didn't like the speech. that's because y'all did the other morning this thing where you interviewed the students about how they thought about the speech the night before. brian: before it happened. >> before it happened. they knew what they were supposed to say. i hated the speech. he was really terrible. ainsley: what does the president need to do going forward. we have seen the polls. some democrats were giving it a c. some of the points at least a c. normally give it an f what does he need to do going forward? >> i think the most important thing he could do is stay on message, at least through the sunday talk shows, avoid all the temptation to go off and tweet about something irrelevant. avoid all the effort by the elite media who are going to be dragging bait in front of him. begging him. because this was a very successful speech.
we're actually going to go through today and list every reform he proposed. i mean, i think it may have more reforms in it than any speech can i remember. a lot of them are going to be very hard for democrats to oppose. you are going to oppose trying to improve the cost of drugs. you are oppose working on the opioid crisis. go down that list. he had assum some very intelligt practical things in that speech. they have to make it real. i swapped notes with senior member in the white house great line i am glad you got it in there. he wrote pack now we have to execute. now they have to make it real. brian: can't do it in many cases without democratic support. he has got to do that. the president i has elected not to go out on the road and pound the state of the union with these themes. why? do you back him up on not doing that? >> oh, first of all, i think his events on the road are inherently partisan because of who they attract. and he then gets into
responding. i also think he understands, and this is something reagan came to understand, last night was a home run. you don't need to go out and also sell popcorn and also go down and sell beer. you need to be the star. i think he has got to do some media. i think he is going to be down at the green briar, for example, talking to the congressional republicans in their retreat. steve: tomorrow. >> i think he has got to drive these themes. but i think he ought to stay presidential. he was very good in ada votes being president of the united states. steve: very good. >> he was very good last night being president of the united states. he doesn't need to revert to being candidate trump. steve: does that suggest to you in the first year he has learned -- obviously there is a lot of on-the-job training but he has grown as a president? >> yeah. i think he said this to the news media sometime yesterday when he said, you know, i have had to learn that a lot of the things do you as a businessman aren't enough if you are a public leader because you have to have more heart. you have to have more
vision. in that sense i don't know if he would be happy hearing this but he clearly is a bigger, more comprehensive figure than he was a year ago. ainsley: real quickly, what was the best line last night? >> i think americans are dreamers, too. it was the best line. brian: a message. some democrats said that was a slap to the dreamers in the audience. that's really number one. >> some democrats are so idiotically out of touch with reality that the idea of describing all of us collectively as dreamers is offensive to them because then they would have to be pro-american. brian: lastly, real quick, the president has got an opportunity now. he is going to be commenting on what's going on with the fbi and the memo. are you recommending that he stay away from that conversation? >> he doesn't have to do anything. all he has to do is have sara go out to the press corps and say here's the memo. steve: any questions? brian: he doesn't have to. >> well, that's why i'm hoping for one week that he will avoid temptation. steve: i got a feeling nothing is going to come out until at least monday.

this speech was donald trump's fingerprints all over it weigh was very involved in the drafting with steve miller. top policy advisors. president plan how the economy has been for the last year. talked about some very serious issues. the ms 13 issue. when he highlighted the people, in the audience, who had been affected by that terrible gang incidence he said we are going to stop them. protect your families and other families. that hits home for a lot of people. brian: 129 times he said we. 104 times he said our. only 29 times he said i. really trying to be inclusive. i thought something else was interesting. see how the president racketsd what's in the room. kept looking over and seeing those men and women standing on the left. the democrats. were you keeping thinking he is going to say something are you going to stand for this. >> how do you not get up when he talks about the lowest unemployment for african-americans in the history of our country and congressional black caucus
doesn't get up and celebrate that. that's not a democrat or republican ideal. that's a american ideal. support people trying to make our country better there are things this president has done which are not partisan which are good for the country and he doesn't get the credit he deserves. >> and the military, the patriotic call that he had for rebuilding our military in america's strength at home and abroad, they sit there on their hands. it was embarrassing for me to watch them. brian: the president did not bring up russia. some were slamming the president. for example, take a listen. >> talk about the issue that wasn't in the speech and that's russia. >> and at the same time he doesn't even mention that russian threat. >> in terms of the russia investigation the president obviously didn't talk about that at all tonight during the state of the union. it looms large over his presidency. >> it looms large. >> talking about russia? if all the people lying brian williams talking about russia. you have got to be kidding
me. this guy has as much credibility as brian ross does now. you cannot give the president the credit he deserves. i don't ever remember barack obama saying let's talk about uranium one deal during my state of the union or the hillary clinton emails or any of the other things that were going on during thinks administration. the hypocrisy of the media is so outrageous, 74% of the independents who saw the speech said we loved it, we agree with the president. 97% of the republicans. >> let's recognize what is a threat to the united states and that's north korea. i mean, he did talk about that threat and he used and he reminded the american people about otto. brian: otto warmbier. >> his parents who were in the audience. it was such a heart felt moment by the president and it was an amazing thing and so important to remind the american people about the animals that we are dealing with over there. brian: hey guys "let trump be trump" very interesting book. corey lewandowski and dave bossie. if there is a sequel will it

motivate others. to be recognized by the president of the united states for, you know, my story of resiliency to inspire others, to share my story. and it's very humbling because it meant a lot that the president wanted to recognize me for living my life to the fullest and inspiring others to go out and do unbelievable things. brian: we see the picture in the oval office. it's your personal moment. can you share what that was like? what you guys talked about. >> it was truly amazing. we walked up and shook his hand. hello, mr. president. then he asked how i got hurt. he looked at my wife and i. he was more intune to like her and i how long we have been married and how beautiful we both are. so it was very, very nice to meet mr. president. then we also met him after the state of the union address last night and got a picture with him had. had some time with him to share some stories and tell him how good of a state of the union address it was. ainsley: some things strike me. when i look at you, when i hear your story, you reenlisted. you love this country. you probably would say it was worth it all. you have been through so
many surgeries and so much pain. you lost both of your legs. have you lost your eyesight. you are a stepfather to two beautiful children. you also have a 5-year-old little girl with your wife now. you are making such a difference in the lives of so many soldiers when you decided to reenlist and help them that are going through a lot like you did. and then when you see the democrats, many of the democrats not stand last night, when the president mentioned that little boy that puts flags on the graves and then he says this is why we stand for the anthem and some people didn't stand, what goes through your mind? >> it is very disrespectful knowing that the amount of blood that was lost in iraq and afghanistan and every foreign soil that the united states has fought on for them to disrespect our flag. you know, even two prosthetic legs and even if i don't have my legs on i still make an attempt to stand up. that's the flag i love and this country i love. i have seen what iraq and afghanistan look like. i know in this country we are so blessed to be americans. we are -- we live in the land of the opportunity. and the flag, the red on the
flag represents the blood that was shed for us. people don't stand up for the national anthem and don't put their hand on the heart for the pledge of allegiance. it's very disrespectful. it breaks my heart knowing that the love of this country and, you know -- steve: corporal, have you given us the recount of how inspiring it was to be at the event and to meet the president and to be in the oval office. but you know what? your appearance last night was inspiring to so many other people that after you had been through so much you just keep going. >> to set in the state of the union in my dress blues and to hear the president talk so much about the military. the military is finally relevant now. brian: yeah. >> not only the united states but around the world. is he making that known and fixing the defense bill. the v.a. it's like everything is so supportive of the military. it makes me very happy and honestly i want to put the uniform back on again and go serve. brian: and you are. thanks so much. great to he so you, matt.

donald trump is doing. even the democrats can stand up we an can trying to grant a path is citizenship we need to grant them a path to retirement. time to retire some of these democratic lawmakers. brian: democratic congressional black caucus sat the entire time. >> these people are back in the 60's. this is 2018. >> that's right. >> this man is truly making america great again. why wouldn't you be happy us having more money in our pocket? they have handing us criminals. we can't vote for a system that is handing us crumbs. we need to vote for a businessman that wants to make the place great again. how will democrats win in 2018 and how will they wind us. >> the democrats are acting like a party symbol and i'm not talking about a donkey. melissa: what else does the african-american community want from president trump? what else can he do besides unemployment? >> he is doing everything. the unemployment rate is low. he is about to do something with the prison system to change that
this is what the democrats wanted. >> that's right. >> obama didn't give you this. why wasn't they sitting down on obama? he wouldn't even reform the justice system until the very end, until people started calling him out. now first year in office you have this president want to do amazing things. brian: you're right, no one really brought that up. he did say justice reform. that was surprise to some people. that is something bipartisan i thought. >> it was supposed to be it is supposed to be but you have these democrats -- these old hairs -- heads they have got to go. brian: old heads. >> i don't mean literal being old. one sitting on the system, working for their own greed and not needs of people. sitting 4.6 million-dollar mansion on 174,000-dollar salary and choose to boycott the state of the union and not represent the people. >> that's right. >> i'm talking about those people, vote them out. time to pay attention. not just stave woke.

for somebody not a career politician. everybody is getting happy. everybody is getting on the trump train. we have people walking up to us, i don't care what color they are. you tell the president he is doing an amazing job. we love him. listen, i know what those democrats want you all to believe and whistle calling they are doing and using trigger words to try to scare black people, it ain't working no more, baby. we're coming off the democratic plantation. they are leaving their stuff there. leaving the crumbs there. >> that's right. >> they want more. brian: "diamond & silk," thanks very much. well-said. melissa: great personalities. they coordinate. i like the purple and black. steve: thank you, ladies. coming up, president trump laying out four pillars of immigration for his plan last night. what does senator marco rubio think about that? we're going to ask him, because he will show up shortly. brian: michelle malkin is finally back here live. she is in the cold. she will come here for the sued

too. brian: that is one of the i am makeful lines of the hour and 15 minute speech the president's first state of the union address. on a pure performance level, the tone was great, the confidence was strong, a lot could go wrong for the president and he pulled it off. let's find out what michelle malkin thinks. he is the host of michelle malkin investigates on crtv. >> body and soul. brian: why was it important for you to be here? >> i think this was a consequential moment for the trump administration. i was here for the inauguration. wanted to be here, covered it for crtv. i felt moved, genuinely moved by the speech the whole thing. i can't remember a state of the union where i felt this emotional about the larger themes of good and evil, and who our real enemies and friend are in the world. and what matters, and to see the
crocheting of all of these stories and narratives of the guests brought by the president and first lady i thought it was masterful. brian: right. >> i pinpointed that moment where he said americans are dreamers too. and i think it was not only a soaring moment of rhetoric, but it was brilliant political jujitsu. we have been told time and time again, not just during this administration and the last presidential campaign but over the last eight, 10, 20, 25 years, that dreamers are americans, and there has been this sabotage of american citizenship and the importance of a unified theme of all of the people that in this country and people are tired of being mocked, derided, and attacked, and so it was the left and media, all those dour faces, i haven't seen some stone faces in a audience since easter island than i did last night.
steve: the president when he mentioned that, there were a number of dreamers in attendance because a number of democrat congresspeople invited them as their honored guests. they are there to hear the president talk about immigration. i know you're for ending visa lottery, chain migration problem. >> i was talking about it before people knew it excited. when i described there was diversity visa lottery, they couldn't believe that was actually real. steve: one of the components, the president suggested 1.8 million people in this country illegally. essentially that is what you would call amnesty. so as you grit your teeth tell me what you think about it. >> yes. amnesty begets amnesty. we've had more than a dozen of them since 1986. the idea of putting amnesty before enforcement is a losing proposition. but i understand -- steve: what about simultaneously? >> i understand the gambit here. we talked about a 40 chess. i can't play one-d chess.
i can't wrap my head around it. i want to make it clear, enforcement, funding for a border wall has to be non-negotiable. that is what i heard. that is what i'm taking away from it. brian: paid up front. it has to be put away so no democratic house can take it back. >> we only get one result when we offer amnesty with regard to any criminal law breaking, and that is more criminal law breaking. melissa: he said gitmo, signing executive order to keep gitmo open. daca, that was trending. americans are dreamers too. when you think about that, what is is your dream? what is the american dream? >> well i think it is what knits together all of the stories we saw last night. to make an impact in the world. to lead meaningful, productive lives and to be able to secure legacy for our children and our grandchildren. and how can you aas so many of these adeled beltway
anti-trumpists did, our president of being the divisive one when he brought together gee sung-ho, defiantly waves his crutches at freedom. parents of otto warmbier and parents of nissa, who were murdered by ms-13 gang members. if they were democratic guests everyone of their names would be written and engrained in the public's mind and sphere. they are white-washed time and again. seizing of narrative, telling stories that the major media would rather cover up that i appreciate -- brian: prediction where will we be on infrastructure, on immigration, election? >> well look, these are not going to be easy battles. there will grabs roots conservatives and limited government conservatives who are going to operate based on empirical evidence and test
every single step of the way. we had a trillion dollar obama pork stimulus package that still hasn't yielded results. we know what shovel-ready jobs actually look like. so those will be tests, that capital hill will subject president trump to and obviously he is ready for the fight. steve: michelle is first person that said porkulus this year. thank you very much. travel safely. melissa: thank you, michelle. still ahead our all-star panel of guests, dan bongino, david bossie, jason chaffetz and dime on and silk. steve: joe kennedy gave the democratic response but only thing focused on was his chapstick. marco rubio knows how hard the internet can be. he is coming up next. ♪

♪ steve: president trump pushing for safer america, extending an open hand to democrats on immigration reform. >> we presented congress with a detailed proposal that should be supported by both parties as a fair compromise. for over 30 years washington has tried and failed to solve this problem. so let's come together, set politics aside, and finally get the job done. melissa: our next guest was inside the room as the president was laying out his immigration framework. gop senator marco rubio joins us now to react. good morning to you, senator.
>> a little cold up here. brian: if you don't like the hot. melissa: what is your reaction, especially to his immigration plan? >> it is interesting. if you think about the things he is proposing, getting rid of visa lottery, the 2013 bill did that. democrats supported that before. limiting family migration to the nuclear family, democrats supported that in 2013. the "gang of eight" bill, that is the "gang of eight" bill. melissa: why are they not supporting it now? >> part is because it is donald trump and their base is demanding it. they want a clean "dream" act. which is not a good proposal. the border should be our priority, because we should do that no matter how many illegal immigrants are in america or not in america. that is fundamental obligation of the federal government. i support all of those four pillars, but we have to have a plan b in case it has to be something limited like border security, codifying daca maybe
not path to citizenship. we can debate that part but we have to have a plan. about, even as they pursue plan a. brian: when the president says 1.8 million. he think roughly number of people here brought here as young kid, now young adults many cases, not through fault of their own. for a lot of conservatives that is no-go. they're angry. >> is .8 is more than what obama did under daca. under daca 60,000 people signed up for it. this is not just opening up for people that applied but people that didn't apply. it goes beyond anything that obama did. that is not enough for some of the people on democratic party. shows you how difficult this issue is to make progress. you're right, a number of my colleagues are against pathway to citizenship. find with potential legalization, but not pathway. we have issues to work through. why i say we have to have a plan b, you don't want to get to march 5th, see a bunch of people fired from the job. brian: february 8th. >> february 8th we start to
debate. talking about people that broke the law, one thing allowed president, many republicans to move on "dream" act population, if you were 7 years old or 8 years old you came here, you didn't commit the crime, your parents might have, but their parents brought you. not you yourself. you have to go wherever they took you. there is acknowledgement we'll treat that group differently as long as they meet the other criteria. but again, it is, if you would have told anyone a year ago that donald trump was going to propose 1.8 million people pathway to citizenship, nobody would have thought that was possible. tell you how things are in this town today, that is railed upon against by the democrats on the left. shows you how hard this issue is. steve: aside from his immigration push what did you make of his tenor? it was very disciplined for donald trump, his speech before the join session. >> you know, i think, i have seen a number of his speeches obviously having campaigned against him and obviously throughout the elections and first year of presidency. i found probably best speech he
gave in terms of creating a concise vision forward for the year to come. you leave that knowing what he wants to do this year, he wants to take on drug dealers, he wants to deal with immigration, he wants to do infrastructure. brian: justice reform. >> mentioned that. of course he is in favor of paid family leave, i think there is a way to do it that is pro-business. there is couple of ideas out there floating to do it that way. prescription drug costs. so gives you a road map moving forward, realizing for the next 12 months, everything we have to tackle will require 60 votes in the senate. will require some level of bipartisan cooperation. so i think you leave that speech knowing, clearly, what it is he thinks the next 12 months should be about. brian: common sense coalition get together end the lockout. joe manchin says we are getting together again. we've got entogether since. do you think there made be a middle, a middle emerging sick of leadership? >> understand the purpose of that group, i've been involved in many of those meetings, not to come up with a bill, say here is the gang of 20. to say here is the starting
point. here what we agree on. we have to do something on the border. make sure on march 5th or whatever, we don't have 670,000 people in school or currently employed lose their work status. the president wants to do that too. start there, let the senate works its will. you have the process with votes. that is what that group is really about. hopefully we come up with something that makes sense and is good for america. that means not everyone will get everything they want. melissa: i always feel sorry for someone giving a speech they're saying something that is just so noteworthy and something they worked so hard on and you had that moment when you reached for the water, people focused on, for the water, "saturday night live" thing. i remember ted cruz was campaigning, had something white on his lip, everyone focusing on that. last night the democrats had opportunity to give their speech, here is representative joe kennedy giving the rebuttal last night. and he had chapstick or something that was gloss sy and shiny on his lips.
steve: in the corners. melissa: people are making fun of him, what did he eat before, that kind of thing. what is your reaction. >> this is entertainment. that is something we could spend time on. we're having conversations about public policy and most important country in the world. that is high minded, that is a tough job by the way. a lot of people making fun of him on twitter negative exposed themselves for anything. easy to stand by a sit behind a keyboard to be snarky. steve: that is twitter. social media. >> not just anything. put yourself out there if you're that great. melissa: would you think he cares? >> i don't care. we raise ad bunch of money off it. brian: president trump had same thing happen to him with water, when he came back the week after the speech, everyone focused how he picked up water. >> i have ruined water forever. brian: great to see you again. let you get back there. >> thanks so much. steve: he should not go far. we'll have an all-star panel with a lightning round. he is going to be part of it
