Missouri Governor Mike Parson addresses tragic boat accident

This is a rush transcript from "The Story," July 20, 2018. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

TRISH REGAN, FOX NEWS HOST: Hi, there, Bret. Thanks so much. We begin everyone with a Fox News Alert. 17 people are dead after a tourist boat overturns in Missouri with the horrifying final moments all caught on camera.


UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh. Oh, no.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Oh, no. It's really --

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Oh, no. Something -- no.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Yes, we're looking that.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: They should never came out (INAUDIBLE).


UNIDENTIFIED MALE: They're going to run off of gas.


UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Going on people?

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: No, just four people.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: We got more or in crew. Anybody can read me. I need a rope on the bell. (INAUDIBLE).

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: (INAUDIBLE) that sink and everybody on board here is trying to keep them out of the water.

REGAN: The victims ranging in age from 70 to a one-year-old infant. And we're just learning a horrific detail tonight that nine of those 17 victims, they are all from the same family.

Good evening, everyone. I am Trish Regan, in tonight for Martha McCallum, and this is "The Story." The boat went down in Table Rock Lake near Branson, Missouri. Witnesses say a strong summer storm, quote, came out of nowhere, sparking high winds and monstrous waves.

The boat quickly began to take on water and couldn't make it back to land. Mike Tobin is live in Branson, Missouri with the latest on the investigation just getting underway tonight. Hi, Mike.

MIKE TOBIN, FOX NEWS SENIOR CORRESPONDENT: And Trish, it is just staggering an entire family nearly wiped out. 11 members of a single family were on board the simple sightseeing tour when it capsized and nine of them perished.

As you mentioned, children died. The youngest of the victims just one- year-old. The oldest of the victims, 70. 29 passengers and two crew members were onboard. The boat's driver was among those killed. 17 ultimately died, 14 survived.

The president of the parent company that owns the boat says, it was a sudden microburst of high winds that materialized and batter the boats. They can be seen on amateur video taking on water. The video stops before one of those boats' flips.

It sank in 40 feet of water, then rolled to a depth of 80 feet where it remains now. The NTSB and Coast Guard are tasked with recovering the boat as they are taking over the investigation, as they try to determine what went wrong.

Several authorities are now saying that when those questions are answered when a determination is made, when in the investigation is complete, if blame doesn't squarely rest with Mother Nature and a freak storm, it will certainly be a contributing factor. Trish?

REGAN: Thank you very much, Mike. Joining me right now on the phone with more, Missouri Governor Mike Parson. Governor Parson, good to have you. All been under a sad occasion tonight.

People are very upset. Family is clearly, clearly devastated at their loss this evening. What can you tell them? What is your message to them?

GOV. MIKE PARSON-MISSOURI (via telephone): You know, it's just been a terrible tragedy that's occurred here in our state. And right now -- you know, our thoughts just go out to the families of the victims, and all the rescue efforts that have been done now almost going on 24 hours the people that's involved in this.

And you know, that there's not a lot you can say when something this tragedy happens other than just your hearts have to go out, your prayers have to go out for the -- for the divers plus the families of the victims, which just -- it was a tragic day for us here today.

And I'm just thankful for people ones that were saved. That people come out, that everyday people come out and turn into be heroes. Because I asked he pulled people out of the water last night when this was occurring and I had opportunity to go to the hospital today and visit with the family member.

One of the 11 that survived, her and her nephew was 13 years old. And it was just -- there just a heart-wrenching time -- you know, to talk to them and try some words of comfort.

REGAN: What's so awful, whenever you see an accident like this, governor, is knowing that -- you know, if the boat just hadn't gone out, there would be 17 people alive right now, here today. If it just hadn't gone out. If it hadn't gotten caught in that storm.

PARSON: Right.

REGAN: The National Weather Service reports that there were winds in excess of 60 miles an hour, and yet the owner of the boat company has said that it -- you know, things were fine when they initially went out.

I guess, my question is what is about doing on the water if there is any doubt, any question, in any meteorology report that suggests there could be a storm coming.

PARSON: Well, and I think that's the question we all want an answer too, and I think that question will be answered. You know, I think it's premature at this point to notice exactly what did happen and what the details were.

But there's an investigation going on both on the state and federal levels. And I think, a lot of those answers -- you know, we'll have to investigate that. We'll see what all led up to it, and what mistakes were made if there was mistakes.

Then, and if they were, then, we got to figure out how to correct that and make sure that people when they come to this state, people, families come here to spend their vacation here that they're going to be safe when they do activities as a family.

REGAN: Absolutely, I understand you just spoke with the vice president. What did he ask you? What did he say?

PARSON: You know, actually I've been -- I've been trying to talk to the vice president. We've been having a little troubles on the phones. But I-- the president called earlier today, at a conversation of him, a lengthy conversation.

And he basically said whatever we needed that he would help with, and I offered that I could call and ask for that. And the other thing is he was just deeply concerned for the people that were involved here and just, generally, just his heart was hurting too like all of ours are here in the state, you know.

Anytime you lose that many people. Like I said, on the family outing, and it's just -- it's hard to imagine, nine people of eleven, and one family. It's just something we're all dealing with here, but we'll have to deal with it.

And I think right now it's so important for people and these families that are involved. Six states before it's all over that friends and family members. And people go to them and understand, and be by their side this time of sorrow and trouble.

REGAN: Yes, now they need it every single one of them right now, and our hearts go out to every one of those victims and their families. And governor, keep comforting them as much as you can. It's nice to hear that the president reached out. Thank you very, Governor Parson. Yes.


PARSON: It was. Even the -- even the vice president both did. Thank you for calling. Appreciate it.

REGAN: Yes. Thank you. All right, still ahead, remember this.


HILLARY CLINTON, FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE: What difference at this point does it make?

REGAN: Well maxed here why Hillary Clinton is drawing fresh criticism from one of the heroes of Benghazi. Kris Tanto Paronto is here for an exclusive story.

And there are tapes. Why did President Trump's longtime lawyer secretly record one of their conversations?

Plus, in wake of outrage, the NFL is putting the brakes on its policy requiring players to stand for the national anthem. Governor Mike Huckabee, he is fired up on that. We're going to hear from him next.

DONALD TRUMP, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: When you go down and take a knee or any other way, you're sitting, essentially, for our great national anthem. You're disrespecting our flag, and you're disrespecting our country.




CLINTON: The fact is we had four dead Americans.


CLINTON: Was it because of a protest, or was it because of guys out for a walk one night, and decided they go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make?


REGAN: That was former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, making that infamous comment about the 2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya that left four Americans dead. Her comments back then sparked outrage.

And tonight, she's once again upsetting a Benghazi survivor. This time, after she weighed in on a story that President Trump would consider sending one of President Obama's former ambassadors to Russia for questioning.

Hillary Clinton tweeted, "Ambassador McFaul is a patriot who has spent his career standing up for America. To see the White House even hesitate to defend a diplomat is deeply troubling."

Her tweet met with outrage from one of the security contractors who saved lives during the Benghazi attack. He says, "Are you (INAUDIBLE) kidding me, Hillary Clinton?

You left Ambassador Stevens in us to die in Benghazi then spewed lie after lie to the family members of my dead teammates and to the world to cover it up, and now you have the nerve to talk about defending diplomats? You are disgusting!"

Kris Tanto Paronto joins us right now for an exclusive story. Good to have you here, Kris.


REGAN: Yes, that didn't sit so well with you, did it?

PARONTO: No, no, it's completely disrespectful. It -- they've already dishonored -- they being Hillary Clinton and those people that follow her and support her as far as disrespecting the family members of my teammates.

And that's just -- you know, that's just another jab in the eye. It is extremely, again, disrespectful. I can't think of a better word than that. It just is terrible.

REGAN: What about hypocritical? In other words, she is talking about how awful it is that the president might send an ambassador to Russia.


REGAN: And you're saying, "Hey, it was pretty awful that you didn't look out for us in Benghazi."

PARONTO: Yes, it's not even awful, I would say murderous. We had the assets available and she's the one that set him down that didn't let him to come to us. And I believe the assets that were available in the area would have saved Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty's my two teammate's lives.

It's an elitist attitude that we're seeing and you see it with Comey, you see with Brennan, you see with Brennan, you see with Clapper that they feel like they've done nothing wrong, ever. And it's just mind-boggling, and it just really -- it pisses me off.


REGAN: Has they ever calls you? Have they ever said sorry? Have they given you a personal explanation for anything?

PARONTO: No. No, not at all. And a lot of it would have been too and I even said this to him behind closed doors as far as my CIA leadership. If you were to just apologize to us, I'd have gone away. I'd have kept deploying this never would gone on, but you couldn't even have them.

Just apologize for your failures. And again, it's that attitude like Hillary Clinton's that is just disgusting people and that's why we were supporting Donald Trump. That's why people want a non-politician in the White House.

REGAN: When you think about how he's approaching international situations and don't forget he's taken a lot of heat for his comments there in Helsinki, how is it that you feel he's very different than anything else you've seen before? I mean, you say you support him and yet there are many members of the military even who were very frustrated that he didn't jump to defend his own people, his own intelligence people. How do you reconcile all that right now?

PARONTO: You know, when you're the intelligence community and you've got guys like Brennan and their guys like Clapper that are spying on a presidential candidate, they're spying on an American, they even -- they even tried to justify the story of it being a video of our attack, they didn't support us, we were all fired, I don't see how I can be mad at real Donald Trump. I can't -- I can't be mad at Donald Trump for the agency that didn't even stand by us when we saved their people's lives. So uh it's -- again it's one of the things where I think he's calling it how it is. He's being a real person. He's not being politically correct. I don't want some a politically correct. I want somebody that's going to say the truth in there and not continual -- to continually lie. And that's what I saw in the past administration, that's why I saw with Hillary Clinton and then again, of course, that night when we came back it was lie after lie, after lie which caused us to come forward and tell the truth.

REGAN: Yes -- no, you got a lot of lies fed to you and I can't imagine how that feels knowing what you risked, knowing that you know some dear friends of you will never be here again because of mistakes our government made. And again these were mistakes that you know frankly could have been handled far more easily.

PARONTO: And they could have been avoided and I'd be honest guys died during war. It's war, that's how it happens. In war people die. It's don't try to cover up what took place because of your political ambitions and that's what makes us upset. That's what makes me upset and continually makes me upset with Hillary Clinton and people that were around her at that point in time. Well, you definitely made that clear on Twitter today anyway. Sir, it's good to have you here. Thank you for joining us tonight, Chris.

PARONTO: Thank you very much. God bless you. Thank you, ma'am.

REGAN: You too. Joining us right now Matt Schlapp, Chairman of CPAC and the American Conservative Union, Chris Stirewalt Fox News Political Editor and Jessica Tarlov Author of America in the Age of Trump and a Fox News Contributor. It's so good to have all of you here. Wow, my goodness Chris, it's been quite a week and quite a week. You know, when you -- when you look back over the course of events beginning on Monday of course with that press conference in Helsinki and then fast-forwarding 24 hours later basically to the president basically saying I misspoke and now, of course, he's inviting Vladimir Putin here to the States. Do you think he's going to be able to push forward on to something new and something different next week or how much is the media going to get entrenched in this story that they're running with right now.

CHRIS STIREWALT, FOX NEWS POLITICAL EDITOR: Well, Michael Cohen helped them out a little bit today.

REGAN: Yes, we're going to get to that but yes, I hear you.

STIREWALT: That one -- so that'll be a little bit of a palate cleanser. No, a story -- a story like this is like when a python eats a rabbit, it -- you can see it moving through the system as it goes along and that'll be the way this is and it will also depend a great deal on how the administration can finally stop correcting the record. They've got to get to a place, they got to figure out what they're talking about, they got to stop there and no more. And they got it and they get a pick a spot and stick to it.

REGAN: But I guess -- one of my questions to you, Matt. Can you really do that when you have a politician as Chris just told us he's really not that politically correct and not always thinking say politically but saying more what he feels in a given moment?

MATT SCHLAPP, CHAIRMAN, CPAC: You know, it's an unscripted presidency.
It's spontaneous. You know, it's kind of like interviews where they say tell me the first thing that's on your mind when they say something and the president reacts very honestly constantly. And I do agree with Chris. I do think we'll get past the story. And the real question with Russia is the policy. Look at all the fireworks in the histrionics that were -- that were covered this week. It's the policy that undergirds it. And this is very tough on Putin policy. It's two or three times tougher than Obama ever dreamed his policy of being. And I think what they have to do is continue to demonstrate to the American people that although the president wants to get along with Putin and tried to come to a rough accommodation with him, they realize that he's a bad guy and that he's done terrible things and that they'll be weary and then questions like Syria and Ukraine were ready to do what needs to be done.

REGAN: Let me turn to Jessica for a moment and ask about Michael Cohen. So now we have learned that Michael Cohen apparently taped one of his conversations in which he talked about paying off the president who was then running for office talked about paying off a woman who worked for Playboy that he had had a relationship with. That's one thing. I guess -- I guess I would just ask what -- you know, maybe this feeds the sort of image of the kind of image that people are trying to put out there for the president but it's not necessarily Jessica, as though that in and of itself is illegal I mean unless you're using campaign funds. So I guess that's the question.

JESSICA TARLOV, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR: Right, well that'll be the question that we'll see how to you know, what plays out from there. And when you say you know, how does this affect the image, it doesn't affect the image of the president because after everyone heard the Access Hollywood tape that was done and dusted. You know who this man is and then you went to the polls on November 8th and you either said it's all right to vote for someone like this or it's not and then voting for Hillary or whoever -- Lieberman, Jill Stein, I don't know. So that's already -- yes, the Russian plan.

So that decision has already been made. It'll be interesting to see if campaign funds were used for this. I happen to think though and Nate Silver made this point this afternoon or on Twitter that you know, it seemed like there was some juice being added to the Russia thread line and now the Playboy model issue is back in the running here which is actually a distraction from what's going on here. I mean, it matters if it's campaign funds but if you have 12 more indictments out of the Mueller probe for instance and we're having a conversation about what the President did standing up there next to President Putin and capitulating to him in the most public forum possible, now we're giving out Karen McDougal.

REGAN: Right, but you know, you think about, Chris, this ongoing investigation. I hope it gets wrapped up soon. Don't you think it's important for the sake of our country that we come to some kind of conclusion here? Whatever that maybe we need to know whether there was any collusion or not because as long as there's this thread of this investigation going on, well you have the mainstream media in the left coming up with all kinds of crazy storylines that they're going to continue as they concoct what may be they think might have happened.

STIREWALT: Well, we should remember here that the collusion stuff is not what we're talking about with Cohen. This is corruption stuff. This is an investigation into corruption and malfeasance. And the issue here isn't about collusion, the issue here -- the material question and this is -- we don't know who leaked this. We don't know whether this came from the Cohen camp, if this came from the Trump camp or this came from somebody else but the whole point here is as Jessica alluded to, did anybody use money, did anybody use a slush fund secretly to try to shape the outcome of an election to pay somebody off to keep a damaging story out of the press or do something like that. That's a crime. You're not allowed to do that.
Now look, it doesn't mean that that's a presidency ending crime if that happened to be the case but that's a different matter and that's not about collusions.

REGAN: OK, but, Matt, don't we know --

STIREWALT: But it's a poor taste from Cohen what he might eventually -- I think it's a warning shot.

REGAN: But don't we know that -- didn't he not actually pay her any money?

TARLOV: That's just what Rudy Giuliani says today. Check with him tomorrow.

SCHLAPP: I think there's a more serious question here. When the Special Counsel pitched this raid of the president's lawyer's office and they were able to glean through all of these materials, a lot of people had serious concerns with that. Now, there are some narrow cases where that could be acceptable but it raises a lot of questions in Americans minds who believe that there should be some fairness and some real strong guardrails between somebody who's being investigated and the lawyer that they have used in the past that's also part of that investigation. So there's very serious questions about this. We do not know where the leak is coming from but I will have to tell you, I think it's a very serious question how about what they know and what we're going to find out.

REGAN: Yes, ah perhaps though in the president's favor. We're not talking about the collusion issue anyway, at least at this moment -- at this moment in time. Anyway, good to see you all. Thank you so much. Still to come, everyone, new developments in Kim Jong-un's promise to President Trump that he'd start the process of returning the remains of American soldiers lost during the Korean War. And why the NFL is now taking a knee on their own National Anthem policy. Governor Mike Huckabee is here. He's next.



DONALD TRUMP, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: Wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners when somebody disrespects our flag to say get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out, he's fired. He's fired.


REGAN: That says it all, right? Well, believe it or not, the NFL kind of sort of listened. Earlier this year it announced that any player on the field would be required to respectfully stand for our national anthem or face a serious fine. Now, that is until this morning when the league and the Players Union announced they're putting the policy once praised by President Trump and his supporters on hold while they talk things out. Joining me right now former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, Fox News contributor and Host of "Huckabee" on TBN Saturday and Sunday nights. Government, good to have you here. I know you're not too happy about this makes you pretty angry.


REGAN: THEY were going in the right direction and then they shifted.

HUCKABEE: Here's why it makes me upset, Trish. I mean, how many people work for a boss and the employees tell the boss what to do? I mean, I've never seen this before ever. So you have NFL players who essentially tell the team owners, the bosses who pay them amazing salaries that here's the way it's going to be. And I just wonder who's running this? I mean, this is the inmates running the asylum on steroids.

REGAN: Roger Goodell, right?

HUCKABEE: Well, here's -- Roger Goodell makes $40 million a year to run the NFL and he can't do it. He needs to step aside. He's not running the NFL, the NFL is running him.

REGAN: Well, you sound a little like the president here, governor, because our president just tweeted a short time ago. Let me share this with you. The NFL National Anthem debate is alive and well again. I can't believe it. Isn't it in contract that players must stand at attention hand on heart? The $40 million-Commissioner -- that's Roger Goodell -- must now make a stand first time kneeling out for game, second time kneeling out for season, no pay.

Well, that would mean I suppose, governor, that they'd have to actually manage these players, right? They have to actually tell them, you know, you're off the field unless you play ball, so to speak.

HUCKABEE: You wonder how many of these guys would give up those multimillion dollar paychecks if it meant that yes, you can salute with your fist, you can get down on your face, and you can spit at the flag, you do anything you want to but you're not going to do it and get paid millions of dollars to play football.

If you want to play football, play football. If you want to run for politics, run for office. But I think we need to get to the place where we get politics out of football and football out of politics.

You know, I get it. That there's a lot of similarities. I mean, the similarity is that both are a full contact sport, both end up having a lot of people shed their blood all over the place.


HUCKABEE: The big difference is, at least in football, you get to wear pads and a helmet. In politics, there are no pads, no helmet and you still get your head handed to you.

REGAN: I like that.

HUCKABEE: But gosh, these guys need to decide if they want to play football. Because if they don't, the NFL is spiraling down to meaninglessness. And I think you know, we may see America get all excited about the World Cup. We'll start calling football and soccer football.

REGAN: That might be pushing it. That just might be pushing a little bit far. But, no, I hear you. I mean, nobody is watching anymore. The ratings have gone way down, but to me, this is a Roger Goodell issue. I mean, I think you and the president are spot on when they say hey, manage these guys.

It shows you, though, governor, how scared they are. How scared that they might lose that talent. I mean, I don't know. I'm kind of a patriotic American. I might be willing to watch the second string there just because they actually are willing to do their job.

HUCKABEE: Well, I just think it's very important that the players understand they are so blessed to get paid that kind of money to play a game. It doesn't hurt them to honor America, honor the flag, honor these men and women of the military who keeps them free. And if they want to protest, do it on their own time when they're off duty. It's simple as that.

REGAN: I'm all for that. Yes. And hey, it's a great song. Thank you. Good to see you, governor.

HUCKABEE: Thank you, Trish.

REGAN: All right. That and other fun headlines we have all coming up. Well, we do have fun headlines, right? That's -- stay tuned for that.

But first, an Iowa couple is among thousands of families across the country waiting on Kim Jong-un to send home the remains of U.S. troops from North Korea. We have more on that story next.



NIKKI HALEY, UNITED STATES AMBASSADOR TO THE UNITED NATIONS: We can't do one thing until we see North Korea respond to their promise to denuclearize.

MIKE POMPEO, UNITED STATES SECRETARY OF STATE: The path ahead is not easy. It will take time. But our hopes I'll say for the world and for all of us and a brighter future for North Korea remains our objective and that hope endures.


REGAN: Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley remaining cautiously optimistic today as to the future of our relationship with the rogue regime.

It comes as there are new questions tonight about when America's fallen heroes will finally start to come home from North Korea. Kim Jong-un agreed to begin the process during his summit with President Trump last month. In moments, we'll talk to a couple fighting to get their loved ones remains home from the Korean War.

But we begin with Fox News chief correspondent Jonathan Hunt from our west coast newsroom tonight. Hi, Jonathan.

JONATHAN HUNT, FOX NEWS CHIEF CORRESPONDENT: Good evening, Trish. The date apparently is set for the return of some of Americans fallen servicemen is significant, July 27th. It was on that date in 1953 that the Korean War was halted with the signing of an armistice.

And now there is hope that the North Koreans might mark today by honoring their promise to beginning returning the remains of America's war dead.

The promise was made by North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un at his summit with President Trump last month. A joint statement from the two leaders talked then about the, quote, "immediate repatriation of those already identified." But more than a month on, no remains have been returned, although earlier this week Secretary of State Pompeo sounded an optimistic note.


POMPEO: We're making progress along the border to get the returning of remains. It's a very important issues for those families. I think in the next couple of weeks we have the first remains returned. That's the commitment, so, a progress certainly being made there.


HUNT: The Pentagon has said that 7,699 U.S. service men are missing from the Korean War, including about 5,300 believed to be in the North. And North Korea has long used them as a bargaining chip in negotiations with the U.S.

For families of the missing, it would help bring some closure. Sixty five years on from the war. But this is North Korea we're talking about, Trish, and quite simply, U.S. officials and the families of the fallen will likely only believe it when they see it.

At the United Nations today, Secretary of State Pompeo talked about the need for Kim Jong-un to follow-through on his promises of denuclearization but the same words could easily apply to the repatriation issue.


POMPEO: So what do we need to see? We need to see Chairman Kim do what he promised the world he would do. Not very fancy but it's the truth.


HUNT: Secretary Pompeo also urged the world to keep up the sanctions on North Korea to maintain the pressure on the regime to fulfill all of its promises. The repatriation of Americans remains would be appear to be the easiest of those promises on which to follow-through. We'll see on July 27th if the North Koreans are true for once to their word. Trish?

REGAN: Right around the corner. Jonathan Hunt, thank you so much.

Now one of the many brave Americans who fought in the Korean War was Captain Harry Moore. Sadly this air force pilot was shot down in Korea in 1951 and he never returned home.

But his family has never forgotten him. And to this day, they are still pushing for answers and seeking closure. Here with us right now tonight, Lois Moore and Bob Moore. Good to have you both here.

Lois, I know that you were married to him. I know that Bob, you were his brother. And you too also have a unique story yourself. But walk me through how challenging the last several decades have been as you have sought to figure out what happened to your loved one.

ROBERT MOORE, BROTHER OF KOREAN WAR VETERAN: Well, we haven't been able to find out anything about it. We were notified in 2002 that Captain Moore was missing in action. And a year later, we were notified and since nothing had been heard from him while he was declared killed in action.

At that time that we started to find out what actually happened to him. So we heard about the DPMO, and we joined that group and we went to all of their meetings. We attended the meetings for 14 years. We actually never got any additional information.

They had the original story that he was shot down and then later on in 2002, we were notified that information had been found in the Russian archives that he possibly had not been killed. And Lois received a letter then. She can tell you a little bit about that.

REGAN: Please do, Lois. He may have been taken as a prisoner of war or sent to Russia?

LOIS MOORE, WIFE OF KOREAN WAR VETERAN: In 2002, I received a letter from the U.S. Air Force stating that information had been found in the Russian archives concerning my husband, Captain Harry Moore.

The pilots that shot him down near the Yalu River indicated that his plane landed gently into the water that he was captured, taken prisoner and interrogated by a colonel Kosodov (Ph) and sent to Monino Air Base in Russia.

And that was the end of that story except many years later some of the pilots that shot him down were interviewed and they even remembered his name many years later.

REGAN: So what is that you guys are seeking now? What might whatever we learn in the coming days change how you feel right now about the past and how might it provide you that closure that you so need?

R. MOORE: Well, we're so happy that President Trump was able to essentially force Kim Jong-un to release this information, to release the remains. What we're interested in, what happened to the -- those that were known alive at the end of the facilities and who never accounted for.

The remains were -- if they lived and died there, the remains were held and he has refused to give them back all these years.

REGAN: So maybe that's about to change. Wouldn't that be wonderful--


R. MOORE: We're hoping that will change. Yes, we're hoping it will change. We need to have an accounting. There are 7500 -- 7500 families just like us that are have waited and grieved for 65 years and we cannot find out what happened.

Our DPMO agency of the federal government has not been able to help us at all. They try, but they say the Russians won't let them in to see the classified files. And we say well, that's interesting, but you won't even let us in to see our classified files.

We know that our government has classified files and they refuse to release them. They've been held for 60 years, even though every president has ordered them to release these files. The CIA, DIA and the State Department has refused to do that. It's an outrageous disgrace.

REGAN: Well, I sure do hope that you guys are able to figure out what happened to your loved ones, to Captain Moore. Our fingers are crossed for you. Good luck to both of you. Thank you so much.

L. MOORE: Thank you very much.

R. MOORE: Thank you.

REGAN: Coming up next, everyone, the new shoe that is impossible to find and no one can figure out why. Would you want to wear this thing? We're taking on the high heel croc debate. Yes, they actually have it.

Plus, it's Friday. Notice we are at work. But guess what? A new study finds a four-day work week might actually be better for you and your boss. Let's see what my Friday female panel, all-female panel thinks about this. We have Kat Timpf, Carley Shimkus, and Kristina Partsinevelos all here with me next (Inaudible).


REGAN: My goodness. All right. So if you're looking for the latest fashion trends for your Friday night apparently, and apparently here it is. High- heeled crocs. If there is such a thing. It turns out there are such a thing. There is such a thing. Unfortunately they're already sold out online and no one seems to know exactly why.

So what does our Friday female panel think about these things? Here right now, Kat Timpf, Fox News contributor, Carley Shimkus with Fox News Headlines 24/7 and Kristina Partsinevelos, our Fox Business reporter. It's great to see all you guys.

This cracked me up when I saw it because, you know, part of the reason I think for wearing high heels is because you want to look good. I don't know if these shoes quite pull that off.

KAT TIMPF, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR: No. The only reason to wear crocs, I thought -- I don't have any -- was to be comfortable because they don't look very good. And you add the heel and they're no longer comfortable anymore. So I don't understand the point.

No heels are comfortable. I never wear heels personally. I put them on about three and a half minutes before I come on set and I take them off immediately so I can't really handle it. But crocs to everyone who can. They do look nice.

REGAN: Yes. I don't know if they've even be that beneficial because if you look at the back, they only have a strap, Carley.

CARLEY SHIMKUS, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR: Yes. You know, I think one of the reasons they old out, well, there could be two explanations. One, either people really like them, or some people may have bought them as sort of this joke novelty type item. But at least they're practical. I think they're practical.

They're probably more comfortable than a regular heel. And most crazy fashion trends make no sense at all. Like remember when top shop was selling those clear plastic plants, which was a real head scratcher?


REGAN: I don't remember that actually. I'm glad -- so maybe--

SHIMKUS: Well, news flash, that happened. So I think they're for the practical lady that like to be comfortable and that's OK.

KRISTINA PARTSINEVELOS, FOX NEWS CORRESPONDENT: Yes. But there are -- they already have a flat form heel that has been selling quite well. And we look at the trends. Ugly is in. If you look at those ugly thick running shoes that people wear. The Balenciaga running shoe.


PARTSINEVELOS: Balenciaga is a designer that actually took this croc to another level. I was in Varney's about two weeks ago and I put it on. I think we're going to show it on the screen just this screen that's taking the croc to the next level. And it's not the croc, it's from Balenciaga. There you go.


PARTSINEVELOS: There you go. How much do you think that is?



UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: It looks like it could be about $20.

PARTSINEVELOS: You think it could be $20. But it is $850 U.S. for this shoe. It's a designer shoe. Maybe it's a mockery

SHIMKUS: You'd have to pay me $850.

TIMPF: They did look like crocs. Crocs could do.


TIMPF: And that's the exact croc.

PARTSINEVELOS: No, because right now sales for croc had been down. This is great publicity for the company. We're talking about it on live TV.

REGAN: My goodness. Yes. And by the way, they're like selling them on eBay and--



TIMPF: Yes. I need extra cash.

REGAN: All right. I want to ask you about another story. New Zealand said it's finding some success. This is a firm in New Zealand it's finding success in a four-day workweek. It's Friday, we're working. You own it at that point. I mean, I don't know. Kristina, they don't have two like (Inaudible) there in New Zealand so maybe the four-day thing has something to do with it. But what are the reason shall we say for a four-day workweek.

PARTSINEVELOS: For me. I -- like I just wait for last minute. So I think productivity is at most. When you know that you have four days to get your job done you will work because you're going to work for that weekend. Five days are like, OK. Well, Monday is a waste. Friday is around the corner. I don't know. That's just--


SHIMKUS: Me, too.

PARTSINEVELOS: Maybe I'm productive but I feel the shorter amount of time I have--


SHIMKUS: You can't get all in.

PARTSINEVELOS: I get that job -- I'll get the job which is why we're in media.


SHIMKUS: Because journalists - they need deadline.


TIMPF: The more that I have to do I feel like the more I get done. If I have a week to write a column, I'm a writer as well, it will take me a week to write the column. But if I only have two hours it takes me two hours.

SHIMKUS: Yes, I don't know. I kind of skeptical about this whole thing, though. Because I think everybody was really productive the first time around because it was new, everybody was excited for that long weekend, but over all people are then going to start getting used to the four-day workweek. Productivity is going to start lagging and then those employers are going to say, wait a second, we got to go back to the five day thing.

REGAN: Yes. Yes. And it feels a little (Inaudible).


REGAN: OK. Mattresses firm that's looking to pay interns to sleep. Well, that's the job for you. I guess if you're not OK with the, you know, five day a week thing maybe you can get a job where you get paid to sleep.

SHIMKUS: Look at that. That's sounds exciting and very comfortable. I think it will be the only overnight shift that I would willingly take and not ever complain about it. But it isn't work than just sleeping. These interns have to post regularly on social media, they have to host this Facebook live sessions and do some reviews on the mattresses.

So I think what mattress firm is doing and they're doing a really good job of it other than promoting their company is they're really tapping into the trend of social media influencers so they're probably going to pick some young 20 persons to promote their brand.

REGAN: You know, I think it does sort of makes sense, having people there that are actually sleeping on the thing and giving your review about it because, I mean, you buy a mattress and you kind of own it at that point.

TIMPF: Get it out of your apartment a little bit difficult. I don't think I would like this job though, because I'm not a very good napper. I'm a kind of person where once I'm up, I'm up. And if I try to nap I just sit there with, you know, great thoughts in my head.

So this job, instead of get paid to sleep would be like, get paid to lay there with your thoughts, which doesn't really sound quite as appealing. So I don't think this would be the job for me.

PARTSINEVELOS: I don't think if it's very hygienic if we're all sharing or taking turns interns like that. And if you want to find some recruitment options, I think those that go to IKEA, and take a nap on the bed there. Because now you can nap on IKEA so you may as well find then, but I think I have a side household selling those crocs online and then getting paid--


REGAN: Yes. If journalism thing doesn't work out.



REGAN: OK. Thanks so much, guys. Have a great weekend. Good stuff. OK. Stay tuned everyone. We've got more of "The Story" right after this.


REGAN: Tune in this weekend for a new episode of "OBJECTified" hosted by Harvey Levin with special rock star Steven Tyler. Here's a sneak peek.


HARVEY LEVIN, "OBJECTified" HOST: How do you have a meaningful relationship when you have women throwing themselves at you all the time?

STEVEN TYLER, SINGER-SONGWRITER: You cheat. You cheat. You break. You have-- you just don't -- you're not true. You're not faithful. And I paid dearly for it, you know. I pay dearly for it


REGAN: All right. You can see the whole interview this Sunday on "OBJECTified" at 8 p.m. right here on the Fox News Channel. That's our story for tonight. Martha is right back here with you Monday. But you can catch me every weekday at 2 p.m. on the Intelligence Report on the Fox Business Network.
