BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): Yesterday this stunning news, that there was a plot to kidnap Gov. [Gretchen] Whitmer [D-MI], and this diabolical group who was out to do some horrific things. We know how bad that is, we know they were watched. The Justice Department found them, arrested them, and they were stopped in their tracks. Gov. Whitmer not grateful, but focused on the president. Listen.


KILMEADE: First off, interesting way to say thanks. Number two is, I thought about you, [Rep.] Steve Scalise [R-LA]. When the [Sen.] Bernie Sanders [I-VT}] supporter tried to kill you and almost was successful, I never heard you say Bernie Sanders is to blame. She -- there was a plot, unwound by the president's Justice Department and she blames President [Donald] Trump.
