BRIAN'S OPENING THOUGHTS
Brian Kilmeade--Eric Holder should really be gone! This Attorney General has been caught not telling the truth, at the very least, and now is trying his best to make amends. is a last ditch effort to keep his job!
After fixing Brian's television problems (yet again), Brian's Fox and Friends co-host STEVE DOOCY weighed in on Eric Holder's charm offensive. Steve said that if he were a Washington Bureau Chief attending the meeting, the number one question he would have for Holder would be, "MR. ATTORNEY GENERAL, HAVE YOU BEEN SPYING ON ANYBODY IN MY NEWSROOM?" Steve went on to explain the reasoning behind the question, "You know he can't take the Fifth...he is not under oath in a behind the scenes briefing where he is supposedly going to telling the truth. So you know, he is in a pickle because if he says 'I can't go into that' that sounds like that's a yes!"
Brian got CHRIS WALLACE, anchor of Fox News Sunday, to weigh in on the bromance brewing between Gov. Chris Christie and President Barack Obama. Chris said he doesn't think it helps Christie's efforts with the Republican Party and that it is a shame because Christie is doing what he should be doing as the Governor of New Jersey which is to help rebuild the state.
At the end of the interview when Brian mentioned Joe Namath was coming up next, Chris begged Brian to tell Namath how much Chris loved him! Before hanging up, Wallace left Brian with one last jab, "Like you, he had a quick release!"
Joe Namath, football legend and 1985 Hall of Famer, talks with Brian about his incredible career and how his knee may have kept him out of the Vietnam War. "I was drafted by the military, Vietnam was happening and I had a bad knee and that knee forced me out of the military. The Surgeon General had to read a report to Congress why this guy could play football and couldn't be accepted to pass a physical for the military." Bottom line: The military couldn't rely on his knee! Joe also talks about the fantastic renovations on the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.
New York Times best-selling author Nathaniel Philbrick, whose new book is Bunker Hill: A City, a Siege, a Revolution, gives a vivid account of the Boston battle that proved a "critical turning point" in the American Revolution. He brings a fresh, new perspective to the story. "I focus largely on a 33 year-old doctor named Joseph Warren, who was charismatic, kind of a swash-buckling, eloquent leader. He was the one who on April 18th, gave the orders to Paul Revere to alert the countryside." Philbrick's book has already been optioned for film by Ben Affleck and Warner Brothers.
Jonah Goldberg , editor-at-large of National Review Online, joined Brian and talked about President Obama's counterterrorism speech where Jonah compared Obama saying the war on terror is over makes it over no more over than a gazelle telling a lion, 'Hey, let's call off this whole lions eating gazelle thing!'
Later in the interview, Goldberg reacted to Howard Dean saying the press is just thin-skinned, "I agree with Howard Dean on the merits, I think the press is often very thin-skinned, but every now and then if you put a dagger through the press' thin skin they have a right to be ticked off about it." Goldberg continued to explain that what the Justice Department did with Rosen was outrageous because the Espionage Act hasn't been used on a journalist in almost 100 years and, "They used it to say that James was a criminal spy for another country and that is something to get worked up about!"
