3:00 pm
>> jesse: he pushes you and you fall right down. >> dana: i would figure that out but i think i would have liked that job. >> juan: they look like robocop. >> bret: can we go back to the ping-pong dog? thanks, juan. good evening. welcome to washington. i'm bret baier. critics of new york governor, andrew cuomo take to the streets over his nursing home scandal. a former employee is accusing the governor of sexual harassment. the woman is making her case in a published essay tonight with some very serious allegations. and the governor is fighting back. correspondent, brian gannon has this story tonight from new york. good evening, brian. >> good evening. lindsey says that she first met governor cuomo in 2016. then she went on to work from m in 2018 before resigning later.
3:01 pm
she later accused him of harassing her in a series of tweets. today, she is giving details. let's play poker. i should have been instructed by the governor's crude comments but i wasn't. that she claims is what he told her on an october 2017 flight. it is one of the details that she lays out in an essay accusing him of unwanted kissing and touching, making unflattering comments to women about their weight and ridiculing them about their romantic relations. boylan says it was a progressive culture of harassment normalized by female staffers. it was an indication that you might be doing some thing right. he used intimidation to silence his critics and if you dare speak up, you would face consequences. in a statement today, governor cuomo's press secretary says as we climbed before, ms. boylan's claims of an
3:02 pm
appropriate behavior are quite simply false. about that poker comment, four staffers on the october flights had this conversation did not happen. it is the latest scandal. they are already facing an investigation. >> not just on my mother, but for the thousands of seniors that have died in our nursing homes. >> today, the victims families and democratic politicians had a rally demanding congressional hearings. ron kim is zeroing in on new york's immunity provision that shields nursing home operators from liability over covid-19 deaths. one of cuomo's political donors. >> they told the donor that if they sent covid patients home from nursing homes, they will die.
3:03 pm
what was his answer to them? he gave them a license to kill. >> and tonight, fox news digital has exclusively obtained a letter from republicans on the house oversight committee demanding cuomo be subpoenaed to testify about his administration's handling of covid-19 in nursing homes. a cuomo spokesperson said "political theater and an attempt by republicans to distract from the congressional investigation into the january 6th capital riots." bret. >> bret: bryan llenas in new york. ryan, thanks. continuing to face tough questions tonight about its retention of immigrant children crossing the border into the u.s. without their parents. the president's team is trying hard to draw a contrast between its actions and the actions of its predecessors. peter doocy has a look. >> unaccompanied kids who crossed the border while biden's
3:04 pm
president are taken to the same kind of temporal facilities as while trump was president. democrats accused trump of putting kids in cages. so, what is the more accurate description of this facility just reopened in texas with prominently-placed shipping containers? >> is that kids in containers instead of kids in cages? >> we had to expand and open additional facilities because there was not enough space in the existing facilities, the facility in texas, which has been closed has been revamped. >> that facility emma they are not cages. they stay in rooms. is is an absolute 180-degree lie of what aoc and anyone from the left says. >> this is not okay, never has been okay, never will be okay no matter the party. >> we have kids coming across the border.
3:05 pm
it is heartbreaking. bigger and there are other problems the president is also trying to patch up supply changr pharmaceuticals and computer chips. >> the current strategy is -- i didn't realize how many chips were in here. but people not being laid off. typical republican lawmakers in the room or on the same page as the president. >> this is important not only for our economy, but also for national security because these cutting edge high end conductors, they operate on everything from the f-35 fifth generation fighter plane to our cell phones. typical republicans were invited to the white house, but they weren't asked to vote on anything. the president was trying to solve the issues with another executive order. >> we have only been here about 5 weeks. it's like the old days. people actually are on the same
3:06 pm
page. >> part of the reason might be because nothing particularly controversial came up. one of the 6 republicans in the oval office today, senator john horan said they never talked about the thing biden says is his number one priority. the covid relief legislation. he says he has heard the white house is determined to pass that with democrat only, democrat votes only, something he thinks is a mistake. bret. >> bret: peter doocy live on the north lawn. thank you. the biden administration says it will increase vaccine allocations to pharmacies bringing the total to 2.1 million doses. also tonight, dustin johnson single dose vaccine, approval and this tradition. now many states are implement in their own vaccine protocols. steve with us tonight from atlanta. >> when you can get your covert shot in the u.s., it may depend on where you live. at the top is alaska where 21%
3:07 pm
of the residents have gotten at least one shot. new mexico is next at 20%. south dakota, 18%. near the bottom are georgia, tennessee, and utah. only 11% have gotten a shot. ned lamont says federal guidelines on who gets the shot are too complicated and starting next week, anyone in his state over age 55 and sign up. >> these are our goals for vaccination. one, get as many people vaccinated as quickly as we can, especially those age-related who are much more likely to suffer complications and fatalities get the shots in the arm as fast as you can. >> both pfizer and -- are ramping up production. third single shot vaccine. johnson & johnson will be able to add three to 4 million doses next week and 20 million by the end of march. >> with 14.5 million doses allocated to states, tribes, and territories and 2.1 million
3:08 pm
through the federal retail pharmacy program, we have nearly doubled weekly supply of doses. for global covid is going away. three variants from the u.k., south africa, and brazil are already present in the u.s. >> variants have emerged and are available. they are indeed transmissible. questions remain about how the virus will impact vaccine effectiveness, verity of disease and mortality. >> the california variant is more contagious and potentially more deadly. >> we don't want to lose. >> the big question, one can any american who wants the vaccine get it? president biden says that will be by the end of july. bret. >> bret: steve harrigan in atlanta. thank you. let's talk about state vaccine programs. governor justice, thank you for joining us. >> hey, bret, thank you for
3:09 pm
having me. appreciate what you do every day. >> bret: thank you. governor, virginia is not known historically for great health outcomes. it leads the nation on diabetes and drug overdoses but when it comes to the covid-19 vaccines, you are not only leading the nation, leading the world as far as this rate. what are you doing? what are you doing right? >> while, bret, you know, i don't want to sound like i'm taking credit for this because i've got lots and lots of great experts around me, but it's a different day in west virginia. west virginia is becoming a diamond in the rough that everybody misses and no question we had our days when we were stuck in a rut, but we really looked at this differently. we vaccinated all of our nursing homes. we got through all that in all the second shots in every thing. we looked at it as age, age, and age. and that's all there is to this.
3:10 pm
and you have to move and you have to move really quickly. you know, bret, there was a day when other states were looking at this as like a committee would look at it. you know, a committee, my definition of a committee is a fraction of individuals, those individuals has dumb i have never accomplish anything. people were stepping back and instead of counting the call was in the field and losing, they were counting and dividing by four. as you go through all of that, all you do is create more and more of a bureaucratic engine that really falls down, when what we did is we absolutely got our national guard, everybody rolling and we got shots in arms. west virginia today, every week, every single week, we get more than 100% of did because we are getting more of the vials. there is great work here in west virginia. that's all there is to it.
3:11 pm
>> bret: a lot of states should look to this because the numbers are pretty astounding. you started out with 80 and older. you didn't do it on the internet. you did it by a call-in system. you have a smaller state as far as population, but it seems like you got to the older people and you handled that population quickly. >> well bret, we are a smaller state, but look how we are spread out. i mean, i hate to say but we've got a lot of people who we've got to go find and we've got to get them into the vaccinating planning and everything. this was not rocket science and it is still not rocket science. the bottom line is you just can't, i mean, i can't believe that we were looking at people that were dying and the ability to save people's lives. it was sitting on the shelf somewhere and even in some cases wasting vaccines. our model is real simple.
3:12 pm
it really boils down to it. we got our local pharmacies, all of our local clinics, our national guard stepped up and we took off. and we took off with the people that we knew were going to die, and that was our elderly, and we absolutely got ourselves back in school because we vaccinated all of our teachers and service personnel right off the get-go from 50 and up and absolutely, you know, i can say it over, and over, and over. there's a lot of good things going on right now in west virginia. >> bret: governor, you're getting praised a lot for that. for critics of big spending that are concerned about pork in legislative, you are not getting a lot of praise for backing a $1 trillion covid bill as it stands on capitol hill. you've said go big or don't call. the bigger, the better. what do you say to mitt romney? he wrote in "the wall street journal," though $1.000000000000 bill is a clunker. it was del mike would waste hundreds of billions of dollars.
3:13 pm
it would enact policies that work against drug creation. >> well, i would just say this and i've got all the respect in the world but the way i've looked at things throughout my life, you know, i've run hundreds of different businesses and employed thousands of people and everything. every problem that i have ever seen, you will never cut way out of that problem, and absolutely the hand of the day, when you're messing around with the fine print and everything on what all is going on, people are hurting out there. really and truly, if we happen to just throw away a few dollars and really jump-start our economy and take care of all the people who are hurting, at the end of the day, in my opinion, what i have done throughout my life and everything, that is what we needed to do. i absolutely am not an advocate of funding people's, pitching
3:14 pm
plans that they have been barreling about for decades and all of the wasteful things that we could get with the low-hanging fruit where we could just look at it and do it. if you absolutely get right down to it and you start really trying to super manage and over manage the store, you will never get there and you will make a lot of mistakes and you will leave a lot of people hurting. >> bret: so, for the critics of that, governor, you would say absorb the projects that they had a problem with that may be democrats managed to get into legislation, take the hit, and take what you can get now and the big form rather than whittle it down? >> well, first and foremost, bret, you've got to understand, i am not an advocate of the project. i can't stand it. but in this whole situation, we have got, we are going to have to be able to stomach something to get everything across the finish line or we are going to end up in a lot of ways just how we've ended up. so, with all that being said,
3:15 pm
what i would do is if you have to stomach a little bit, and that in itself really jump-start our economy, i've never seen a situation that you don't have to do that. just think about your budget at your house. you know come at the end of the day, we think it's going to be x, it always ends up a little bit more and everything. so, let's go big enough that we can get there. we don't need to throw money away just to be throwing money away. but we've got to go big enough to make it happen. >> bret: governor justice, we appreciate your time and i'm sure there are a lot of governors looking at your state plan for vaccines. thank you, sir. >> bret, thank you for everything. >> bret: so, a lot of questions about the man running one of the evaluations into the security failures surrounding the capital right. up next, we will go live to southern california on the condition of tiger woods following tuesday's rollover traffic accident. >> when you start thinking about golf is when you, i don't know

riley. jason, what you think of this? overall the policy. >> well, that's it. the overall policy is what really disturbs me. yes, this is hypocrisy that is easy to poke fun of. but what is really going on here is the unwillingness of the biden administration to admit that there are problems with immigration policy that trump highlighted. and i say this as someone who largely disagreed with president trump overall on immigration. but he did point out flaws, particularly in the refugee policy, how we have people showing up at the border claiming they want asylum, persecution, and they crowd out the wheel of acai leas. so, these are fundamental
3:42 pm
problems and joe biden seems more interested in saying i reverse a trump policy than addressing the underlying problem. and the irony here is that i think if he would acknowledge it don't like the flaws in our system and that they need to be addressed like the refugee policy, he would find some buy-in from republicans. yes, let's do something about these fake acai leas are showing up. and the republicans might say okay, i will give you some support on handling your immigration agenda like handling the dreamer situation. i really think this is a missed opportunity for biden. >> well, thanks for having me on. i think jason makes some great points. i think one of the things that we are finding very hard, the bite in the administration is coming to understand that. i think it is also important to note that caging children is just bad policy whether it is done under trump or anyone else. i think the congresswoman from new york, i think where i would
3:43 pm
differ a little bit from jason is that we have to think a little more broadly about immigration report. we can debate the amount of time it should take one to enjoy that citizenship and the kind of conditions associated with that. but the majority of americans, even half of the republican party. and two, when you wait 35 years, remember, the last time this was done was under president reagan back in 1986. no smart corporation or not-for-profit takes 35 years to make things better, stronger, more efficient. we should do that now with immigration law. the guy said the other day that any bill that starts with comprehensive has a really tough road ahead in washington over years. take a listen to democrats talking about this immigration bill. it does not sound like there is a forceful push for what is

3:45 pm
have a lot of bad memories associated with those arguments. let me just say that about this issue of regarding, we shouldn't ignore what this was. every administration has taken children who were brought to the border, who were disconnected from their family and they have held them in places in order to figure out legally where they were supposed to go, where they are supposed to be placed. that is something that has happened under every administration. and yet, under donald trump it became a human's rights violation as you heard kamala harris saying how quickly we go back to compassionate human holding facilities and the like. but this is going to be a big problem, i think going forward because as the biden administration approach is the border, they are only going to incentivize a lot of these central american families, migrant families that are going to try to come north. and this is the situation that has been exploded time again by coyotes, by cartels along the border, using these kids in
3:46 pm
order to get people access to america. and this creates a huge problem that is only going to grow. and the time of covid is going to be completely a threat i think in terms of what it brings to the border. i feel like this administration is walking into a real problem here without a clear plan of action on how to deal with these things. it is fine to have slogans when you are running for office. but once you actually get in that job, you have to have solutions, and i'm not confident that they do. >> bret: it just sounds like democrats on the hill feel like this is going to be a political issue potentially in 2022 already. when we come back, more problems for the president and we will talk about the other nominees as well, where that stands. to♪ ♪ what you need? i mean it... uh-oh, sorry... oh... what? i'm an emu! no, buddy! only pay for what you need. ♪ liberty, liberty, liberty, liberty. ♪ ♪ hey now, you're an all-star, get your game on, go play ♪
