In 1908, Theodore Roosevelt and William Howard Taft were such great friends, TR personally campaigned for Taft to succeed him to the presidency. Four years later, that relationship was so irrevocably damaged that TR split the GOP in half to deny Taft's reelection. There's no way around, Taft's presidency was made by Roosevelt, and then it was unmade by Roosevelt. But there's far more to Taft's legacy than just his four years in the White House.Follow along as Taft pursues a career in the judiciary, gets dragged into politics by President William McKinley, is tasked with rebuilding the Philippines in the midst of a bloody and horrific insurgency, gets put in the White House by his bff Theodore Roosevelt, gets kicked out of the White House by his former bff Theodore Roosevelt, and then becomes the only person in U.S. history to serve as both president of the United States and Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.

Following the leak of the Supreme Court draft opinion that would apparently overturn Roe v. Wade, pro-choice activists have been conducting protests outside the homes of Supreme Court justices including Justice Samuel Alito, the author of the draft.   Republicans have condemned their actions, saying their intimidation of Justices is unethical and illegal. And while Democrats have voiced their support for the protesters, who they say are simply exercising their First Amendment rights, Senate Democrats did vote for a bipartisan bill that expands security protection to the immediate family members of the high court. However, the House has yet to act and there is still pressure on Congress to do more. Esther Salas, a Federal Judge for the District Court in New Jersey, is one of those who say the government is not doing enough to protect judges.  Earlier in the week, she joined host Dave Anthony on the Rundown to discuss the need for security for Supreme Court Justices and what actions Congress must take. Salas also discussed the tragic story of how she was targeted for doing her job and lost her son during an attack at her family's home.  Due to time limitations, we could not include all of the conversation in our original segment. On the FOX News Rundown Extra, you will hear the entire discussion with Judge Esther Salas. You'll hear more about why she believes it is vital for our democracy to protect judges and how she remains hopeful despite the heartbreaking loss.  Learn more about your ad choices.

Inflation has been plaguing Americans over the past year, and President Biden has been struggling to find a remedy. Recently, the President has been focused on confirming his nominees for the Federal Reserve while also lowering costs of things such as prescription drugs and childcare. However, rising energy costs and supply chain disruptions to items such as baby formula have only added to the country's growing list of concerns.  FOX Business White House Correspondent Edward Lawrence explains how the White House is attempting to bring down gas prices, why the Fed keeps raising interest rates, and breaks down the baby formula shortage in America.   As Pennsylvania's Senate primaries approach this Tuesday, the split between three Republican candidates grows narrower. Much of the focus has been on Dr. Mehmet Oz, the candidate who received an endorsement from former President Trump, and Dave McCormick, the candidate whom many believed would receive that endorsement. Kathy Barnette's recent surge in the race has left many to wonder how her prominence will influence the number of undecided voters in the election. Government Professor at University of Texas at Austin and FOX News Decision Team Member and Pollster Daron Shaw joins Jessica to break down the power of the Trump endorsement in Pennsylvania, what issues are of most importance to voters, as well as how both parties may fare in North Carolina's upcoming primaries.

After months of battling soaring inflation, the Federal Reserve has pulled the trigger on raising interest rates — approving a substantial half-percentage-point rate increase earlier this week. As Americans face the largest interest rate hike that's hit the U.S. since 2000, many wonder what the coming months could look like as economists talk of a potential recession. FOX Business's Gerri Willis joins the Rundown to discuss how recent interest rate spikes affect Americans' day-to-day lives, why the current economy is benefiting the housing market, and the likelihood of a recession hitting the U.S.   The path to success wasn't an easy one for country singer Walker Hayes. After moving to Nashville to make it big, he struggled to follow his dreams and overcome alcoholism all while supporting his family. It wasn't until meeting his best friend, Craig Allen Cooper, that Walker found a new life of faith, sobriety, and later, stardom. He joins the Rundown to discuss how his hit song, "Fancy Like," took off on Tik Tok, defeating addiction, and the importance of the support from his friends and family that got him to where he is today.   Don't miss the good news with Tonya J. Powers.   Plus, commentary from FOX Nation host Tom Shillue. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
