BRIAN’S OPENING THOUGHTS
Brian is completely shocked at the news coming out of Cleveland that three abducted women have been found after 10 years, and is relieved that they are all miraculously healthy. PLUS: Where were all the other media outlets in September and October last year when the Benghazi attacks occurred? Brian weighs in on the Benghazi attacks and FOX News’ outstanding coverage for the past eight months.
Brian’s co-host on FOX & Friends, Gretchen Carlson, stopped by and continued Brian’s birthday celebration. Harris Faulkner also surprised Brian by calling into the show and singing to him! “He’s tight in all the right places, particularly between his ears” Faulkner said.
Jennifer Griffin, FOX News National Security Correspondent, weighed in on the latest news coming out of Benghazi and all the heat she has taken for her coverage from the Washington Post. “I feel a little vindicated reading The Washington Post front page story this morning when I hear… what Greg Hicks is going testify to tomorrow,” Griffin exclaimed.
Stephen Moore, Senior Economics writer for the Wall Street Journal weighed in on the current economy and explained why he’s getting a little more “bullish.” “Oddly enough I think Barack Obama is less dangerous now than he was in his first term,” Moore said, “He didn’t accomplish much, if anything, in his first 100 days, and it’s very unlikely the democrats will take the House in 2014.”
Jean Edward Smith, author of Eisenhower in War and Peace, talked to Brian about Eisenhower and President Obama. “In many respects the challenges that Eisenhower faced were much more serious than those that President Obama faces,” Smith explained, “The Cold War, the Soviets, the nuclear standoff, the danger of nuclear war, for example.”
General Jack Keane, retired four-star General and FOX News Military Analyst, weighed in on the Benghazi committee hearings that will take place tomorrow. “I’m looking forward to it very much,” Keane exclaimed. He went on to say he would not be surprised if we hear that there was a stand down order the night the Benghazi attacks occurred.
Diana Madison, Host and Executive Producer of Hollyscoop, gave Brian all the latest details coming out of Hollywood. First she talked about the news surrounding Kobe Bryant suing his mom, who sold many of Bryant’s items from childhood for money. Later, Madison dished out the latest about Lindsay Lohan and her ongoing rehab battle.
