PETE HEGSETH (GUEST CO-HOST): Charlie, there's no doubt kids have worries and anxiety. I mean, just last night, one of my boys was worried whether he'd be on the team with the other two boys in basketball camp this morning. But it's not just families. It's schools are reinforcing this eco-anxiety too by being obsessed with climate change.

CHARLIE KIRK (TURNING POINT USA): That's exactly right. And unfortunately, this is a really important point. Elementary school children spend much more time focusing on climate change and the environment than they do on American history. You'll have fourth and fifth graders --


KIRK: That will know much more about the idea that the world will end in 10 years than about 1776, the War of 1812, the Civil War, Abraham Lincoln, or the beauty of the American founding. And that right there can answer the question of how these radical ideas are actually able to spread in our society, when you spend far more time on the idea that the world is going to end in 10 years, which is totally false, and not on the history of our country.
