ABBY HUNTSMAN (CO-HOST): We had Frank Stiller on the show. And, of course, he is the founder of Tunnel to Towers Foundation, giving -- helping families that have lost loved ones. And most recently helping those cops that have lost -- first responders and cops. And we asked him what's going on in this country, why are we seeing so many deaths of police officers and things like that. And he said -- he actually mentioned Colin Kaepernick specifically, and he said it's talk like that that causes so much hatred in this country and so much division.
ED HENRY (CO-HOST): It allows people to normalize the idea, "Yeah, we can just go kill a cop." It's absurd, it's outrageous.
PETE HEGSETH (CO-HOST): Especially on foreign soil, feeding stereotypes about our police who serve us honorably every single day. It's terrible.
