JOHN BERMAN (CO-HOST): Let me put this first to you, because you used to work somewhere else. What would have happened had another president a previous time just said, take the land, eminent domain?

ALISYN CAMEROTA (CO-HOST): Thank God Fox News channel is not still around to hear this, because they would have freaked out. Any time there was any suggestion about President Obama using eminent domain for anything, Roger Ailes, and therefore Fox News, blew a gasket about the idea of seizing private land. "This is a democracy. How dare he be an emperor." Now, I don't remember there ever being a story about the president then saying even if it's illegal, I will pardon you, back then. I truly -- I can't wait to hear what Fox says about this this morning.
