And I was one boredom former White House plus extra under the Bush Administration now Fox News contributor and a predator mourners for an -- had its first time in studio with you.
Thank -- for coming in -- source of 500 -- wanted to actually commander.
Are you get it can be harder than the white house press briefing.
No it's not -- except character in the people are smarter than.
So all I ask I elected -- functions like loan yes I do and I really enjoy it at get a lot of great opportunities a lot of different shows.
And you know who knew I had opinions of my -- I've been somebody else a spokesperson for fifteen years and now I -- it.
Express my own thoughts which and you know it's quite liberating when you're not.
Thinking about all the different diplomatic means in of that country in this country or any sort of classified information might spill out your head -- -- I've enjoyed it a lot.
So when you left the White House.
-- all of our magic number trying to channel.
Well and when I left the White House you know what I did.
I went says South Africa with my husband for six weeks and we spent -- little time doing some volunteer work at an HIV aids center.
-- which has really.
Probably the best thing that I did went once I left because it helped to ground me remember that we came out of the administration in the middle of the huge business and you were blown learn -- -- now.
At an HIV aids altered again that part of the -- -- program that was President Bush's program for her and aids in Africa -- you're helping people get.
The medicines that they needed.
And I've gotten to go with him to Africa a couple of times and united set all the statistics at the podium about how many people we had helped in Africa.
Felt a need to really understand it better and the best way to do that was that was to go into be a part of it every day and it is.
It's something I've continued to do through of course I have what I do to make a living but.
And I also been involved in a few charities including the one campaign in Mother's Day every day that helps further that effort -- -- just noted.
-- -- -- is so interesting and difficult as of course we had a not I believe we had a moral obligation to help save life because.
We had to medicine's we just needed to get them to the people.
But what's interesting now what I found when I was there is that.
They are living longer.
Against state hospital the whole time -- they go back to.
Their village or into usually sometimes -- slum area.
And they can't really get the care that they need with their lives or longer which is a good thing and now we need to start working on the governance and all that Africa is a huge -- we got problems here in America -- I don't discount that but it was really good for me to go there and be grounded.
Fourteen million kids.
Fortune -- -- -- and in this country and America -- about hunger.
Where you held alone we're talking the other day about.
The billions of dollars of President Bush and President Clinton -- For -- you know what happened on the money.
-- -- essentially or go to Haiti now.
And it's exactly the same -- it was.
-- and under current editor.
And in fact all we're doing essentially building in champs.
Know more than we know Obama -- -- stuff.
Works -- -- or Riley was Aston hill tonight -- there's well.
Well what what what what -- happen to them.
Why I don't know I don't know -- program but would you go to -- coverage would go -- we go out find you know.
Well I think it'd be worth checking into the Clinton bush Haiti fund to find out what.
Mechanisms they had and Plaisted to find out and I hope that they talked to Bill O'Reilly today or something maybe and maybe they asked yesterday and didn't get a response from -- -- and -- that they would have but.
I know that one of President Bush's main concerns once -- duty assignment was.
Can we guarantee his money is going to be spent appropriately and not wasted and Haiti it's not just in the last two years after -- earned last year after the earthquake.
That this has been a problem this has been a problem for decades.
The amount of money that has gone there and it's it's cut its.
Huge disconnect to think how -- you pour all this money imagine what a state.
Like the state of Wyoming where I'm from could do with that kind of money.
In terms with good governance and good leadership -- In Haiti I I agree with -- it's -- Of course it's not a lost cause we can't think of it that way but it is very frustrating for people and the other thing is is mentioning the children.
The or the missionaries that.
-- said that OK so then then there was slowdown in adoptions and there's a lot of American families that want to adopt these children.
And this slowdown is such that you know a lot of these children -- you when you they lose that spark in their eyes.
And they're dangerously close to that at this moment and so hopefully that can change but then -- old Baby Doc returning to Haiti I don't know how that changes things Clark -- -- -- Fox News contributor.
And Irish foreign partners ninety minutes our doors something about a foundation securities were -- Pressure to -- cancer in -- Mexico.
And stringent about -- -- we run up and fund raising all.
A lower supplies for example not patent on -- -- and tunnels organization.
The money virus has spent eight million dollars on administrative costs.
And several 100000 -- little -- sold -- happens.
All the time yeah.
I guess my question -- all.
So someone else's responsibility.
To have him to have to return to have to provide better -- -- site.
It's for these various fundraising effort but to government gets involved and -- to London to former presidents -- involved.
In farmers and unemployment of all of them mean an and we can't -- -- -- so then -- and and people are Vietnamese then no more generous people entered this country.
-- -- having billions of dollars and -- And on the Specter of having captured in this or maybe you morality but somebody -- -- So.
That there are ways to do it and you have to be very is and -- to strong arm them and in fact one of the things that I really appreciated about.
Getting to go down to South Africa -- I went at that part of that -- for our program was.
Required very strange and dollars to care -- dollars to administration.
And that's updated it in and you say it happens every charity or non -- -- those administrative costs creep up over the years and your mission.
Right it whereas initially it might have been just for alleviating poverty and a certain place now all of a sudden it's about.
Climate change or other things and and say there's mission creep at some of these places and I'm not singling anything any one particular organization out but.
-- keeping your focus is is is critical and I don't know of too many charities that that don't have that I actually worked with another that you might really like it's called pets Tibet's and it's -- -- this young man and a soldier of ours went and ended up with PT EST after serving.
Came back was really having a hard -- friends in even wanna be around him.
And they suggested that he get a dock and he however I haven't done.
Guess this -- this puppy that he rescues from a shelter.
And now he's created pets to that's distressing matchup that's of PT -- -- with rescue animals across the country now marbles on the difference for him is that.
He's one person he has a full -- job and then he does he parks and our Intel community and then he tries on the side to put this together.
And the the stop start of -- really make this happen.
You could see where it may be some big corporation could take it on and -- can make it big but then you have the possibility of the mission -- So you can see it going either way -- -- of them dollars in but another not a gender lines I agree but jester and all of I have a -- and a half year old -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Well.
I got I'm OK so I met my husband on an airplane Bryant thirteen years ago.
And he's British and moved to England and I read a lot of I'd always been -- -- in English history and -- king Henry the eighth.
At least that his story her.
And all of them but not changing that -- Henry was and six and a half weeks old and and we got him from Scotland and so he's led a lot of different places and those of us in DC now the government.
