DAVID ASMAN (FOX BUSINESS HOST): I take the subways in New York to work and back home again. This morning, I was taking the subway, there were these 14-year-old girls, 13, 14-year-old girls throwing the f-bomb around like crazy. I mean, now, they're young ladies and they're throwing the f-bomb. The whole sense of decorum, the whole sense of the way we deal with each other is a very important part of what makes America great, and what makes the First Amendment possible. You have to have decorum in order to have a good First Amendment debate, and unfortunately, that process is falling apart. And, of course, both sides are to blame, there's enough blame to go around, but it's got to start -- she -- this woman, [Congresswoman Rashida] Tlaib, is a role model, whether she likes it or not, she's a role model to those 13 and 14-year-old girls on the subway. She's got to behave like one.
