As high school and college graduates mark the end of their school years amid the coronavirus pandemic, Fox News hosts offered their advice to the graduating class.

“This is a year unlike any other. The deal is you don’t know how to get to where you want to be, but keep driving because if you can make it through this year, you can make it through anything. I’m sorry you didn’t have the same graduation as always, but enjoy this day and congrats,” said Fox News chief political anchor Bret Baier.

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean remembered some words of wisdom that have stayed with her over the years.

“One of my favorite quotes about graduation is from the late, great Nora Ephron. She was a journalist, a reporter, a writer and an amazing filmmaker. And she said, ‘your education is a dress rehearsal for a life that is yours to lead.’ And I think that that’s a beautiful way of thinking about the days to come. Your forecast looks very bright!”

“America’s Newsroom” co-host Ed Henry pointed out a famous saying from an American president.

“I want you to remember these four letters. C-A-V-U: ceiling and visibility unlimited. That’s what former President George H.W. Bush used to say before his death. That when he was a terrified 19-year-old fighter pilot in World War II, when he heard those words, he knew that the sky was going to be perfect for him to go fulfill his mission. And you know what? Your generation has now been tested just like the greatest generation. And I think you’re going to rise to the occasion just like they did,” said Henry.

Judge Napolitano on George Floyd’s death: Why haven’t the officers been arrested?

Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano asked Thursday on “Fox & Friends” why the Minneapolis police officers involved in the death of George Floyd have not been arrested.

After a night of riots, fires and looting in the city, Napolitano said given what the video shows of Floyd’s arrest and his death at the hands of an officer, Attorney General Bill Barr should be asking the same question.

“Of course they should be charged. … If I were the attorney general, Bill Barr, I would call up the attorney general of Minnesota and say, ‘why haven’t [the officers] been charged with murder? Why are they free? Why are they not in jail if we have a video of the murder? If you guys don’t do it, we will,'” the judge said, explaining that the FBI could charge the officers with a federal crime if the state does not immediately pursue a murder charge.

LOS ANGELES PROTEST ERUPTS OVER GEORGE FLOYD DEATH; AMERICAN FLAG BURNED, HWY 101 BLOCKED

“There are two violations here. There is murder and then there is the use of legal force to deprive him of his civil rights. The murder is the state crime. The use of force to deprive him of his civil rights — in this case, the right to breathe — is a federal crime. Cops can actually be prosecuted for both,” he continued, pointing out that the unrest in the city will not stop until the officers are arrested.

RIOTS ERUPT AS PROTESTERS TAKE TO STREETS OVER GEORGE FLOYD KILLING

President Trump said Wednesday that he had ordered the FBI and Justice Department to investigate the death.

“At my request, the FBI and the Department of Justice are already well into an investigation as to the very sad and tragic death in Minnesota of George Floyd,” Trump tweeted.

The FBI was called in to aid local police in the investigation into Floyd’s death, which immediately drew comparisons to the case of Eric Garner, an unarmed black man who died in 2014 in New York City after he was placed in a chokehold by police and pleaded for his life, saying, “I can’t breathe.”

Protests in Minneapolis over the death took a dramatic turn for the worse Wednesday night as city police responded to stores in the city being looted and burned as well as a deadly shooting at a protest location. Social media users posted videos on Twitter that showed burning businesses and looters entering a local Target store and making their way out with bags full of items.

Fox News’ Mike Tobin, reporting live from the scene, said he was caught in the crossfire and felt pepper spray get into his eyes.

“Some of the flashbangs have been deployed, primarily from the police on the rooftop,” Tobin said at one point, standing with a news camera and microphone between the lines of protesters and police officers.

Fox News medical contributor Dr. Marc Siegel said Tuesday he was “deeply disturbed” to see partiers in Missouri and other places seemingly flouting coronavirus social distancing guidelines over the Memorial Day weekend.

“The states I mentioned (Missouri, Texas and Florida) have flattened the curve but if you see this kind of cavorting going on, you know, there’s a lot of asymptomatic spread of COVID-19 and we don’t know exactly how it spreads, but close contact will definitely spread it,” Siegel said on “America’s Newsroom,” emphasizing that keeping a safe distance from people is even more important than wearing a mask when it comes to avoiding the virus.

“I don’t think the mask does nearly as much as the social distancing does.”

MEMORIAL DAY BEACH CROWDS LEAD TO MIXED MESSAGES FROM OFFICIALS ON CORONAVIRUS

The scenes of packed bars and pools in Missouri’s Osage Beach of the Lake of the Ozarks prompted the St. Louis county executive to issue a new coronavirus travel advisory. The advisory urges those who went to Lake of the Ozarks and flouted state officials’ social distancing measures to self-quarantine for 14 days or until they receive a negative test result for COVID-19.

“This reckless behavior endangers countless people and risks setting us back substantially from the progress we have made in slowing the spread of COVID-19,” County Executive Sam Page said Monday. “I encourage everyone to follow the Department of Public Health advisory to determine a safe path forward in the workplace.”

Lake of the Ozarks is a popular getaway for people who live in St. Louis. The spot also attracts visitors from nearby states.

Siegel backed the idea of partygoers going into self-quarantine, emphasizing that a cough or sneeze can travel several feet, creating a dangerous environment for germs to spread at the packed pool and bar.

“We are going to end up having a problem as we reopen if people are congregating like this. I’m deeply disturbed about this. Missouri officials are saying maybe these people should go into quarantine after this kind of behavior and I’m not against that. We have to do something,” he urged.

Former transportation secretary: Why more bailouts may be coming for mass transit systems

Congress will have to give serious consideration to an additional financial package aimed at helping struggling transportation companies and mass transit systems, former Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood told the “Fox News Rundown” podcast.

Speaking on Tuesday’s episode with host Jacqui Heinrich, LaHood compared the dire situation the transportation industry is facing due to the coronavirus pandemic to the downturn for airlines after the 9/11 terror attacks in 2001.

He said Americans are wary of being in close proximity to one another on trains, buses and airplanes.

“I think once the country develops a vaccine and people feel comfortable with the idea that they can begin to use buses and trains and other mass transit, ridership will increase. But that may be a year away until there is a vaccine and some transit organizations may simply go out of business for lack of ridership, particularly in small communities, middle-sized communities, rural communities. But there already has been a big impact and I think it will continue for a while,” said LaHood, reacting to the possibility that New York City’s public transportation system, the MTA, will need billions more.

TRUMP BLASTS BIDEN AD CRITICAL OF GOLF OUTING

The MTA already received nearly $4 billion out of the overall $25 billion approved in the CARES Act for the nation’s transit systems, but the city has estimated nearly $9 billion in additional losses through the end of 2021.

LaHood, a former Illinois congressman who was transportation secretary from 2009 to 2013, said a “huge debate” is coming for Congress since many residents of U.S. cities rely exclusively on trains and buses to travel and commute.

“This is a real, real huge dilemma for cities. And I think Congress will step up and in the short term help the mass transit industry stay in business until a vaccine can be found or until people feel comfortable riding mass transit again,” he predicted, emphasizing that normal ridership levels won’t return until a vaccine is available to the public.

“People are not going to have a comfort level with going to restaurants, with getting on buses, with getting on subways, with riding the Amtrak trains and so forth until they feel assured [that other people are not infected.] Look at what happened after 9/11. … New York came back because people felt safe. Why? Because law enforcement, the FBI, everybody working together made New York a safe place until people felt that sense of security about their health. I don’t think that will occur until there’s a vaccine,” he said.

According to a Congressional Oversight Commission report released last week, the Treasury Department has yet to disburse any of the $46 billion in funds to the airline industry contained in the massive coronavirus relief package approved in March.

The report released Monday is the first from the Congressional Oversight Commission, which was created under the CARES Act to keep tabs on the Treasury Department and the Federal Reserve — and the historic $2.2 trillion in overall funding in the bill.

The report detailed the extent of the economic devastation being inflicted as a result of lockdown measures to curb the spread of the virus. The report said that “more than one-quarter of the U.S. economy has been idled — a fall in output equivalent to what occurred between 1929 and 1933 during the Great Depression.”

Karl Rove rips Beto O’Rourke’s political ‘cheap shot’ on Texas reopening economy

Former White House deputy chief of staff Karl Rove ripped Democrat Beto O’Rourke Monday for taking a “cheap shot” at the Texas Republican governor’s plan to reopen the state in a responsible and safe manner.

The former congressman and presidential candidate mocked the gradual reopening of the Texas economy from coronavirus shutdowns as “dangerous, dumb and weak.” O’Rourke’s Twitter post was a reaction to a tweet by Gov. Greg Abbott, who touted the Lone Star State’s reopening plan as “Safe, Smart, and Strong.”

“Dangerous, dumb and weak,” O’Rourke wrote in retweeting Abbott’s message.

“I thought he might be tweeting out his own personal motto,” Rove responded on “Fox & Friends,” noting that Texas is the second-most populous state but has among the lowest number of COVID-19 deaths per capita.

He added that the number of hospitalizations remains steady and testing is ramping up, with one out of every 33 Texans being tested for the virus.

“I thought it was a cheap shot by Robert Francis O’Rourke,” said Rove, adding that Abbott has called on people to maintain social distancing and wear a mask when they leave the house.

Rep. Dan Crenshaw and Sen. Ted Cruz, both Republicans, also fired back at O’Rourke, the former congressman from El Paso who failed to unseat Cruz in 2018 and then ran an unsuccessful bid for the Democratic Party’s 2020 presidential nomination. Rove said O’Rourke may next be eyeing a bid for governor in a few years.

In more commentary on the Texas reopening plan, O’Rourke retweeted a Washington Post story that said Texas recently reported new single-day highs in both coronavirus infections and deaths.

“Despite what Trump & co. (Abbott & Patrick) say, stay home if you can & wear a mask if you have to go out. It will save lives,” O’Rourke wrote.

Last week Gov. Abbott outlined Phase II of the Texas reopening plan. It permits child care centers, massage and personal care spas and youth clubs to reopen May 18; bars, bowling alleys, bingo halls and other entertainment venues to resume operations May 22 – with restaurants at 50 percent of capacity – and sets a May 31 reopening date for youth camps and sporting events.

Joey Jones: ‘Shame on’ the New York Times for ‘cheap’ op-ed on US military and white supremacy

U.S. Marine veteran Johnny “Joey” Jones blasted The New York Times for publishing an editorial on Memorial Day weekend that claims the U.S. military celebrates white supremacy.

“It’s something that just stirs your blood a little bit,” said Jones, a Fox News contributor, on “Fox & Friends” Monday, calling it a “cheap” attempt by the Times to generate attention and “relevance.”

The New York Times Editorial Board published the piece titled “Why Does the U.S. Military Celebrate White Supremacy?” The Sunday editorial made the argument that it’s time to rename military bases after “American heroes, not racist traitors,” referring to bases named after Confederate generals.

The editorial listed Fort Benning, Ga., as an example, noting that the military base honored Henry Lewis Benning, a Confederate general “who devoted himself to the premise that African-Americans were not really human and could never be trusted with full citizenship.”

TRUMP SLAMS NY TIMES EDITOR, PUBLISHER: ‘I LAUGH AT THEM ALL’

The editorial pointed to Benning’s “now-famous speech in 1861” during which “he told secession conventioneers in Virginia that his native state of Georgia had left the union for one reason — to ‘prevent the abolition of her slavery.’”

The editorial board noted that Benning’s statements “strongly resemble that of present-day white supremacists — and reference the race war theme put forward by the young racist who murdered nine African-Americans in Charleston five years ago.”

Retired Staff Sgt. Jones, a bomb technician who lost his legs in an explosion in Afghanistan, said he was upset when he read the piece but then said people need to remember who is behind it.

“There are 365 days in a year. There has been 150 years since the Civil War. Why is the New York Times writing this on Memorial Day this year of all years? Because it’s relevance, right? It’s the opportunity to get people to talk about them,” argued Jones. He said it was “offensive” to think that black service members should “wake up this morning” and focus on that aspect of the military’s history on Memorial Day.

“That’s as bad as saying that coronavirus was warranted because we had slavery 200 years ago. That’s just not how we look at our country,” Jone said. “We try every morning to get better, not sit around and poke at each other about how bad we are. And I find it offensive and repulsive. … It’s a cheap attempt at relevance in a time when something like coronavirus and Memorial Day are the headlines. And shame on the New York Times for even trying it.”

Pentagon spokesman Jonathan Rath Hoffman tweeted Sunday night in response: “On a solemn day for remembering those that have given their lives for our country fighting against tyranny and subjugation, the NYT has more than a million possible stories of the ultimate sacrifice by American patriots that they could tell. But they don’t.”

He added in a follow-up statement: “The Department of Defense is the most diverse meritocracy in the country and the most powerful force for good in world history. We have many stories of valor still waiting to be told this Memorial Day weekend.”

Pennsylvania Republican congressional candidate Sean Parnell called out Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf Monday on “Fox & Friends,” arguing it is “absurd” to believe the state cannot fully reopen until a “foolproof” coronavirus vaccine is available to the public.

Parnell, who is running for the House seat currently held by Democrat Conor Lamb, said business owners in the Keystone State don’t have that long to wait.

“The fact of the matter is we might not ever have a vaccine. … Pennsylvania stands on a very thin line between hope and darkness,” said Parnell, a decorated combat veteran who was wounded in Afghanistan. “We have Democrat and Republican business [owners] around here that are about to close their doors forever. We have 2.2 million people unemployed, over 30 percent of the state, and most can’t access the state’s antiquated unemployment system. It’s a disaster. We have no choice but to reopen safely.”

EMILY COMPAGNO: ON MEMORIAL DAY, I REMEMBER MY MILITARY FAMILY AND ALL WHO HAVE PAID THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE

As he faces increasing pressure from the business community, Wolf said Thursday he does not believe the state can return to normalcy until a proven vaccine is widely available. The governor emphasized the need for widespread testing and contact tracing.

“Ultimately I think what it’s going to take for everybody to feel safe going to a Penn State game or a basketball game is that they have some confidence that they’re not going to get sick by being in close contact with somebody else,” Wolf said.

“I think that’s what it’s going to take to really get our economy back to normal, and I really think that can’t happen fully, 100 percent until we have a vaccine that is foolproof. That’s my own stance.”

PA DINER OWNERS REOPEN IN DEFIANCE OF GOVERNOR’S ORDER

Parnell said 80 percent of coronavirus deaths in the state occurred in nursing homes, and locking down the economy would not have prevented that from happening. Wolf initially said the economic shutdown was temporary to slow the spread of the virus, but Parnell pointed out that the rhetoric has gradually shifted to a vaccine now being necessary for reopening.

Earlier on “Fox & Friends” Monday, the owners of a York, Padiner that reopened in defiance of state coronavirus shutdown orders called out Democrats for going “too far” after the state temporarily revoked their license to operate.

In an interview with host Steve Doocy, Round the Clock Diner owners Dimos and Christos Sacarellos, who are father and son, said they remain open for Memorial Day customers while they appeal the order.

After a recent appearance on the show, the Sacarelloses said they received notice that their two locations had been shut down, with Christos Sacarellos calling it a “tyrannical temper tantrum” by Gov. Wolf.

Meanwhile, some Democrats in Pennsylvania are reportedly beginning to put some pressure on Wolf about the state’s reopening process two months after his office issued a stay-at-home order.

The Philadelphia Inquirer pointed to a few recent instances where Democrats seemed eager to see bigger steps in the state’s reopening, including a letter from State. Sen. Maria Collett that relayed some frustrations of residents in Montgomery County.

The owners of a York, Padiner that reopened in defiance of state coronavirus shutdown orders called out Democrats Monday for going “too far” after the state temporarily revoked their license to operate.

In an appearance on “Fox & Friends” with host Steve Doocy, Round the Clock Diner owners Dimos and Christos Sacarellos, who are father and son, said they remain open for Memorial Day customers while they appeal the order.

After a recent appearance on the show, the Sacarelloses said they received notice that their two locations had been shut down, with Christos Sacarellos calling it a “tyrannical temper tantrum” by Gov. Tom Wolf. He said the restaurant has been following CDC guidelines, keeping customers six feet apart and can operate in a safe and responsible way.

“This was only intended to stop the curve. This is not politics now. This is going a little bit too far. Flatten the fear. Let’s get back to normal,” he added, as his father Dimos argued that Democrats have an “agenda” behind keeping businesses closed.

“[People] want to be free. Everyone, every customer comes in they thank us. Thank you for being open. ‘Thank you’ when they leave, they thank us again. It’s not about the diner. It’s about the American people. They want their freedom,” Dimos said.

Meantime, some Democrats in Pennsylvania are reportedly beginning to put some pressure on Gov. Wolf about the state’s reopening process two months after his office issued a stay-at-home order.

The Philadelphia Inquirer pointed to a few recent instances where Democrats seemed eager to see bigger steps in the state’s reopening, including a letter from State. Sen. Maria Collett that relayed some frustrations of residents in Montgomery County.

The letter last Tuesday informed Wolf that many in her county have seen little evidence that Wolf’s administration “recognizes and sympathizes with the added physical,  emotional, and financial suffering they are facing as a result of  our prolonged stay-at-home conditions, which you know.”

Wolf has maintained that his top priority is safety. However, like other states, residents have suffered financially from coronavirus guidelines. About 2 million Pennsylvania residents have lost their jobs since mid-March.

Devin Nunes tells Trey Gowdy why he believes the Mueller probe was on ‘thin ice’ from the start

Former House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes said Tuesday on the “Trey Gowdy Podcast” that he believes the basis for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation was on “thin ice” from the very beginning.

Rep. Nunes, R-Calif., joined former Rep. Gowdy, a Fox News contributor, for a wide-ranging interview on the origins of the Trump-Russia investigation, the targeting of Gen. Michael Flynn and House Republicans’ efforts to find out what the FBI under then-Director James Comey was doing in 2017.

Nunes said he knew something was amiss when the committee’s access to key documents about the Mueller probe was continually blocked, including the memo from then-Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein outlining the “scope” of the investigation.

“They were not supposed to use counterintelligence to send up a special counsel. I mean, that is all questionable. … We pounded and pounded away. We couldn’t get access to it,” he explained, adding that when he did finally get a look at the memo in late 2018, the contents couldn’t be revealed because the Mueller probe was ongoing.

“You look back on that and think when they wouldn’t give us a scope memo and now that everybody knows what’s in there, you knew they were lying. I mean, you know, by the documents they don’t give you, you can essentially look back and say, ‘wow’ they were truly on thin ice,” said Nunes, calling the scope memo “damning” because it relied heavily on the discredited Steele dossier about suspected Trump-Russia ties.

“It was all the dossier that they already knew was fake and phony. And I think the question is did Rosenstein and [Christopher] Wray — and whoever was involved in standing up the Mueller team — did they know that the FBI knew at the time and the Mueller team knew at the time that there was no there there? As Peter Strzok said in his infamous text message in early 2017 with Lisa Page, there was no there there.”

Nunes told “The Story” on Monday that Republicans have not referred either former President Barack Obama or former Vice President Joe Biden for criminal investigation over the Russia probe.

“We’ve been running our own investigation, House Republicans have, for three and a half years and we’ve made our own criminal referrals,” Nunes told host Martha MacCallum after Attorney General William Barr said he does not expect U.S. Attorney John Durham’s review of the origins of the Russia probe to lead to a “criminal investigation” of either man.

Nunes told Gowdy that he hopes Durham is getting to the bottom of all these matters, including why the FBI and DOJ were “lying to and misleading Congress” in 2017 and 2018.

Tennessee mayor and former WWE star Glenn Jacobs — formerly known as Kane– said on Monday’s “Fox News Rundown” podcast that the overall response to the coronavirus pandemic, including broad lockdowns by many governors, has been “extremely troubling” to watch.

Jacobs, a Republican who won the 2018 race for mayor in Tennessee’s third-largest county, Knox, said there is nothing in the U.S. or his state’s Constitution that would allow for many of the restrictions.

CORONAVIRUS: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

“We talk about public safety, but the issue is that when the government says something is an emergency. and we can do anything. Then all that has to happen is, you have an emergency. And that’s extremely troubling to me and it should be challenged by the people as well,” said Jacobs, lamenting that many state leaders are not trusting the people to live their lives and be safe.

Instead, he said they “decided that they have to tell people what to do and that’s not their job. And frankly, I don’t think that they have that authority.”

“No politician gets up there and says, ‘eHy, we’re going to take all your freedoms.’ What they do is they say, ‘well, you know, we have to assume some of these responsibilities.’ And when we look around through history and around the world, that’s generally what happens, especially in democratic societies.”

The former champ, who spent about 20 years in professional wrestling and won several world titles, also reacted to the WWE continuing with events in empty arenas amid the pandemic.

“I think it’s the right decision because right now there’s just not that much available in the realm of live entertainment. But I think that it gives people a distraction and something else to think about and I think that’s important. I think WWE handled that in a responsible way,” said Jacobs, adding that not having fans takes away an important part of the show for the performers.

One of WWE’s biggest stars, Roman Reigns, decided not to appear at the events, since he’s a cancer survivor and has young children at home. Jacobs said he understands the decision by the fellow former WWE heavyweight champion.

“You need to walk a mile in someone’s shoes before you judge on that. So certainly in this situation, he did the right thing for him,” he said.
