BRIAN'S OPENING THOUGHTS
How far is Mayor Bloomberg going to go? Brian looks into Mayor Bloomberg's national agenda and wants to know why he thinks it is alright to tell people outside of New York City how many guns they should own. Plus: Brian wants answers! He talks to RNC Chairman REINCE PRIEBUS to get an explanation of why he came forward and told the country everything he thinks is wrong about the Republican Party.
Phil DeMuth, author and Ben Stein's writing partner, talked about his new book The Affluent Investor: Financial Advice to Grow and Protect Your Wealth. DeMuth explained why he wrote this book, and said that he originally wrote the book for his high net-worth clients, but later realized that the book is equally as relevant for lower net-worth individuals as well.
FOX News' National Security Correspondent Jennifer Griffin gave Brian the low-down on how the President's trip to Israel was received. She also weighed in on what we are doing in Jordan that is affecting the situation in Syria, and explained that Jordan has not been affected by the Arab Spring. Griffin also talked a little bit about the sequestration, and how the military is handling the cuts, sparking a lot of callers!
Brian's co-host of FOX & Friends, Gretchen Carlson, stopped by and talked about the new pope, Pope Francis. Carlson argued that the new pope is a "man of the people," and is exactly what the Catholic church needed, while Brian argued against her.
Later, the two got into talking about Brian's slip of the tongue on FOX & Friends this morning with supermodel Karolina Kurkova. (If you missed it, click here.) They debated as to whether or not Kurkova actually does have a belly button or if it simply a "small crevice."
Chairman of the Republican National Committee, REINCE PRIEBUS, explained his decision to come forward and tell the country everything he thinks is wrong about the Republican Party. Priebus responded to all the criticism and said, "I think the party needs a wakeup call in becoming a granular... full-time operation. We cannot just be an entity that once every four years comes out of the ground like a locust and shows up for six months..."
Political columnist for The Washington Times, Charles Hurt, spoke his mind to Brian. "It must be nice to be the president, to be able to take all these vacations," Hurt said! He also weighed in on the RNC coming forward with a 97-page report, which stated everything the Republican Party is doing wrong: "The one thing Republicans or conservatives can take some solace in is that Republicans are at least doing some soul-searching. That is not happening on the other side of the aisle."
