STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): If you were watching 60 Minutes last night --

BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): I was. 

DOOCY: -- You saw Donald Trump's first interview since he became president of the United States. They aired about 30 minutes. It was contentious, it was back and forth, for instance, it started with video of the hurricane that devastated parts of the panhandle of Florida, and the first question, it wasn't about federal response, it wasn't about emergency preparedness, it was about global climate change. 

...

KILMEADE: So, here's how we start, we start talking about climate change, and if you listen close, you can hear an agenda. 

...

KILMEADE: She really believes in global warming, and that's fine, and man's role in climate change, and that's okay. But, I don't think you should bring your point of view -- she was trying to win over the president with her point of view --

AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): Talking about what scientists --

KILMEADE: Yeah, about scientists this, scientists that, there's other scientists who say it. Something's going on out there. The role of man has not been unveiled to a way in which the president accepts, same way [Sen.] Marco Rubio answered very similarly in similar questions
