AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): The conversation in this country has really changed. You have lawmakers that are going to restaurants, they're harassed with their families. And they have to think, OK, wife, husband, how do we prepare for this if we get into this situation? You have firefighters, you have police officers on the street. They have to think, what do we do when this happens?

PETE HEGSETH (GUEST CO-HOST): And then how did we get to that place in this country?

EARHARDT: I don't know. Look at the Post, New York Post says, "Cow dare you," calling these men and these women that are doing this, throwing water, throwing milk, cows.

HEGSETH: And that's why President Trump stands up and says, "I'm for the taxpayers and the citizens and the people who came here legally."

DOOCY: Right.

HEGSETH: It resonates so much with people, because you see another side of the aisle, an entire party saying, "We're the party of illegality, we're the party of non-citizenship." And he says, "No, last time I checked, America still matters."

STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): All right. Can we see the hands of the people here today, the first responders in law enforcement, who have encountered anything like that in the last year or so in New York or wherever you are?

BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): Hit with water, hit with milk, disrespected, taunted?

DOOCY: All right.

EARHARDT: Or know anyone that has?

DOOCY: Well, that's good.
