BRIAN'S OPENING THOUGHTS
Brian is extremely encouraged with what he has seen regarding immigration reform, and thinks that Marco Rubio is on the right track. Brian also weighed in on gun control and thinks that the legislation has nothing to do with what happened with Jared Loughner, James Holmes and Adam Lanza.
Bret Baier, anchor of Special Report, talked to Brian about Senator Marco Rubio who was on almost every Sunday morning talk show yesterday, talking about immigration reform. The duo also talked about the Masters yesterday. "I loved every aspect of it," Baier said. He also weighed in on Tiger Woods' illegal drop and whether or not he should have withdrawn from the competition. "It could have gone both ways," Baier said.
New York Post Columnist Michael Goodwin talked to Brian about his column surrounding Governor Cuomo. The duo also talked about why Michelle Obama comes off as inauthentic throughout her pleas for gun control legislation. Goodwin said the lack of authenticity stems from Michelle trying too hard to act like an ordinary person. He said, "Let's face it, not. She has armed protection. The idea that somehow... she's a busy single mother, I mean come on!"
FOX's Chief White House Correspondent, Ed Henry, talked about the progress of gun control legislation in Washington. Henry also talked about the relationship between Obama and President George W. Bush, and said that he thinks Obama has more respect for Bush now than ever before.
Wayne Allen Root, former 2008 Libertarian Party Vice-Presidential nominee and author of The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide, talked to Brian about "Obamageddon." "I think we are involved in the biggest cover up in the history of the world," Root explained. "If you listen to the media outside of FOX News you think everything is great because the stock market's up and there's a slight rebound in real estate."
Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) weighed in on all the latest news coming out of Washington. She said what astonishes her the most "is the amount of taxes." "It's the ShamWow salesman. It just keeps on coming; there's more, there's more, there's more." Blackburn said.
HE SHOULD HAVE WITHDRAWN! Golfing legend Greg Norman joined Brian and weighed in on Tiger Woods and his illegal drop at the Masters. Norman believes that Tiger should have withdrawn from the competition. Norman told Brian that there is, "No question about it, I would have withdrawn. I have done it before, withdrawn when I was leading a golf tournament...The game of golf is bigger than anybody else."
Norman explained that Tiger, "should have known the rules...you have to drop the ball to the nearest spot where you last hit. He did not." Norman continued, "I have never seen such a polarization of opinions in our game of golf in my history after that moment and what happened...and why didn't he withdraw." Norman believes that there is no gray area here, it is just pure black and pure white and this will never go away because of the magnitude of the moment, who it was, and the position Tiger represented in the game of golf. Was it an intentional rules infraction? Absolutely not. But Tiger got an advantage and in golf you don't seek an advantage that other golfers do not get.
FOX's Chief White House Correspondent, James Rosen, talked about immigration reforms. Rosen said that in the fifteen years he has been in Washington, he has never heard more optimism surrounding the legislation within both sides of the aisle.
Diana Madison, Executive Producer of Hollyscoop news show and host of Hollyscoop TV, gave Brian the low-down on all the celebrity news. She weighed in on the controversy surrounding Jay-Z and Beyonce's trip to Cuba, and said that although she is a huge Jay-Z fan, she was very disappointed in him. Madison also talked about the MTV Movie Awards that took place yesterday, and the Coachella music festival.
