. happening now in the "newsroom." >> you've called women you don't like fat pigs dogs slobs and disgusting animals. >> only rosie o'donnell. >> for the record it was well beyond rosie o'donnell. >> yes, i'm sure it was. >> too tough on trump? the donald says fox was mean. . plus the president's push for support on the iran nuclear deal suffers a major blow. why democrat chuck schumer will vote know. >> rather than say good-bye or good night, i'm going to say i'm going to go get a drink. >> jon stewart signs off but not before a star studded and
6:01 am
emotional sendoff. and good morning. i'm carol costello. thank you so much for joining me this morning. one front runner is still simmering and lashing out hours after top republicans share a crowded stage for the first presidential debate. and guess what? it was the most watched primary debate ever. more than 10 million people watched it. so let's begin with some of the key moments. >> is there anyone on stage -- and can i see hands -- who is unwilling tonight to pledge your support to the eventual nominee of the republican party and to pledge to not run an independent campaign against that person? again, we're looking for you to raise your hand now if you won't make that pledge tonight. mr. trump. >> i cannot say i have to respect the person that if it's not me the person that wins. if i do win -- and i'm leading
6:02 am
by quite a bit -- that's what i want to do. i can totally make that pledge if i'm the nominee. >> you know that's a completely ridiculous answer. i want to collect more records from terrorists but less records from other people. how are you supposed to know? how are you supposed to -- i tell you -- >> get a warrant. get a judge to sign the warrant. >> senator -- you know when you're sitting in a subcommittee blowing hot air about this you can say things like that. when you're responsible for protecting the lives of the american people then you need to make sure to use the system the way it's supposed to work. >> as president, would you bring back water boarding? >> thank you. i wasn't sure i was going to get to talk again. >> we have a lot for you. >> with iran you're making a deal. you say we want him, we want him, we want our prisoners. we don't get anything.
6:03 am
we're giving them 150 billion dollar plus. i tell you what. if iran was a stock, you folks should go out and buy it right now because you'll quadruple. what's happened in iran is a disgrace. >> the court has ruled and i said we'll accept it. guess what? i just went to a wedding of a friend of mine who happens to be gay. just because somebody doesn't think the way i do doesn't mean i can't care about them or i can't love them. >> i've got a record in florida. i'm proud of my dad and i'm certainly proud of my brother. in florida they call me jeb, because i earned it. >> this election better be about the future not the past. it better be about the issues our nation and the world is facing today, not simply the issues we the once faced. if i'm the nominee we will be the party of the future. >> oh but the most explosive moment in last night's debate was this. >> one of the things people love
6:04 am
about you is you speak your mind and you don't use a politician's filter. however, that is not without its down sides n in particular when it comes to women. you've called women you don't like fat pigs dogs slobs and ditz disgusting animals. >> only rosie o'donnell. >> no it wasn't. your twitter account -- >> thank you. >> for the record it was well beyond rosie o'donnell. >> yes. i'm sure it was. >> your twitter account has several disparaging comments about women's looks. you once told one it would be a pretty picture to see her on her knees. how will you answer the charge from hillary clinton their part
6:05 am
of the war on women? >> i think the big problem this country has is being politically correct. [ applause ]. >> i've been challenged by so many people and i don't frankly have time for total political correctness. and to be honest with you, this country doesn't have time either. i've been very nice to you although i could probably not be based on the way you have treated me but i wouldn't do that. but you know what? we need strength. we need energy. we need quickens and we need brain in this country to turn it around. that i can tell you right now. >> trump perhaps realizing he messed up big time is on the attack this morning shortly after the debate and again this morning falling the fox anchor mean unprofessional and overrated. so let the wargin. begin.
6:06 am
joining us now from cleveland is dana bash. you were there last night. what was that moment like? >> reporter: it was kind of amazing. megan kelly clearly understands the kind of person donald trump is. he did it way before he was even running for office. if somebody hitting him, he hits back heard. on his twitter feed this morning he is going after her in a pretty aggressive way. on television he was on another cable network this morning trying to push back and better explain himself. listen to this. >> you know the question on the women, i didn't say many of those things. they said something and they were giving out some words. i don't remember that on the apprentice. and i don't know where they got some of these word, to be honest with you. in fact i'm going to have somebody call up and find out
6:07 am
where these words came from. because i don't recognize these words. not that i'm an angel, but i don't recognize these words. she was spewing out those words and i was sitting there. when i said the rosie o'donnell thing, the room broke up. it was the biggest event in terms of sound and in terms of come sound in the room. it totally threw her off. she thought this was going to be a cakewalk. that was an interesting moment, if you want to know the truth. >> reporter: lucky for donald trump, your producers on this show have done a little bit of work for him looking up some of what he has said in the past particularly the quote about being on your knees. this is something that happened during the celebrity apprentice. it was brandy roderick former playboy model trying to explain
6:08 am
how much she doesn't want to be eliminated from the apprentice. here's what happened. brandi said i don't want to do this. trump said excuse me you'd drop to your knees. broderick said yes. trump said that must have been a pretty picture dropping to your knees. with the celebrity apprentice, obviously that is entertainment. certainly you can imagine trump explaining it that way. you look at some of the other quotes. a lot of them were about rosie o'donnell being a fat slob being a pig. i just want to point outlooking at trump's twitter feed this morning when it comes to slob that appears to be gender neutral. he's going after republican pollster frank luntz calling him a slob because he didn't like the fact that luntz had focus
6:09 am
groups last night with trump supporters and many of them after watching the debate were not. >> joining me now cnn political commentator sabrina shaffer and robert kieger. sabrina, i must start with you. according to a quinnipiac poll 37% of republican women say they would never vote for mr. trump. and that was before this debate. did trump help himself with women last night? . >> carol, i thought the whole thing was such a spectacle. and it was so disgusting. he was a baf foonfoon up there. it was ridiculous. some of the unique challenges women place in the workplace with health care. not one of them stepped up to talk about minimum wage or paid
6:10 am
mandates. this is the cornerstone on the republican agenda and no one jumped on it. it was a lost opportunity for the gop. >> robert i'll go to you next. you're a trump supporter. when trump admitted he called rosie o'donnell fat and a slob the audience went wild. they cheered. can you explain that for us? >> sabrina, the latest poll has donald trump leading amongst women. but i thought it was a great debate last night. all the candidates were really really good. but it should have been called the fox let's try to ambush donald trump show. it didn't work. let me tell you something. this tactic that the media seems to have with donald trump about beating him up on every single thing, that first question shouldn't even have been asked. that's been asked and answered so many times about his campaign
6:11 am
pledge. and it's a moot point because donald trump is going to be the republican nominee. he's going to be the next president of the united states. so it doesn't matter. the question is totally moot. >> got your point, robert. thank you. peter, i couldn't help but think because during the happy hour debate carly fiorina was pretty fantastic, right? she has the twitterverse abuzz this morning. she has the best trump slam. a part of me wanted her on stage. but first let's listen to her slam. >> i started as a secretary. i didn't inherit anything. i am a self-made woman. and i understand how the economy works, how the world works. how to cut bureaucracies down to size and how technology can be used against us or for us. i am plenty fit to be the leader of this nation. >> with her performance and trump's comments about women, could trump's comments about women in a weird way help carly
6:12 am
fiorina? >> yeah. i think the republican party clearly has a problem with women, especially unmarried women. and the problem they have with donald trump is he's exacerbating that problem for the party. the other candidates don't want to take him on because they don't want to get in a match with donald trump. you get in the mud with donald trump, it's not a good place to be. on the other hand with latinos and some women in particular donald trump is exacerbating what is already a significant problem with key demographic groups. carly fiorina could answer those charges better than some on the stage. >> with that said sabrina, wouldn't it have been nice if she was on the prime time stage last night? >> absolutely. she absolutely proved herself in the quote happy hour debate. i think she did a fantastic job. what's missing from the republican nair tefrrative up there is a conversation about the democratic issues that women
6:13 am
care about. this was not even carly fiorina's best performance last night. many people have written about the way she's been much more impact full. impactful. i think she lends an important voice. and we'll see her on the main stage in future debates. >> robert, final question to you. do you think donald trump cares about women? >> absolutely. why is he ahead in all the polls amongst all the other republican candidates? >> what makes you believe that donald trump cares about women? specifically, what policy has he articulated that you would make you think that. >> let me answer peter's question. i mean i just am surprised about, you know that he's not leading amongst women, he's not leading amongst hispanics.
6:14 am
they both hate him. guess what? he's leading in the polls in both of those things. specific women questions, to answer peter's question guess what the mediators missed the opportunity. they didn't ask good policy questions. the show was about the people on the panel asking the questions. they should have taken their owned a vice. and their own advice a few days ago was -- you've got chris wallace smirking when donald trump tried to answer a question about his bankruptcy. why didn't they ask ben carson you've had thousands of operations over ifthe years, what about those four patients you lost in the last ten years. what can you tell us about those? >> he attacked megan kelly
6:15 am
calling her mean and unprofessional. really? >> what was the question. >> the conservative side has a real problem with women. i've been hearing women between last night and this morning just aghast at the way women were being discussed last night as if they are some sort of minority. they are more than 50% of the population. there was a lost opportunity to talk about real economic issues from obamacare to education to cultural shifts to the workplace to what's happening in politics. this was a tremendous loss. trump did a real disservice not only to the party but to women. it was insulting. >> fox didn't ambush trump. he ambushed himself. >> great way to wrap it up. let's talk about something good. good news on the economy this morning. 215,000 jobs were added last
6:16 am
month with the unemployment rate holding steady at 5.3%. that's the lowest unemployment rate in over seven years. still to come in the "newsroom," president obama's iran fight with congress may have gotten just a bit more difficult. a powerful democrat says he will vote no. listen up... i'm reworking the menu. mayo, corn dogs... you are so out of here! ahh... the complete balanced nutrition of great tasting ensure. with nine grams of protein...

and 26 vitamins and minerals. ensure. take life in. i called for help as soon as i saw her. i found her wandering miles from home. when the phone rang at 5am i knew it was about mom. i see how hard it's been on her at work and i want to help. for the 5 million americans living with alzheimer's and millions more who feel its effects. let's walk together to make an even bigger impact and end alzheimer's for good. find your walk near you at alz.org/walk. woman: this is not exactly what i expected. man: definitely more murdery than the reviews said. captain obvious: this is a creepy room. man: oh hey, captain obvious. captain obvious: you should have used hotels.com. their genuine guest reviews are written by guests who have genuinely stayed there. instead of people who lie on the internet. son: look, a finger. captain: that's unsettling. man: you think? captain: all the time. except when i sleep. which i would not do here.

hotels.com would have mentioned the finger.

i've got two reasons to take care of my heart. that's why i take meta. meta is clinically proven to help lower cholesterol. try meta today.
6:20 am
and for a tasty heart healthy snack, try a meta health bar. . the white house loses a key democratic ally in its campaign to sell the iran nuclear deal. chuck schumer, arguably the most powerful jewish democrat on capitol hill now says he will fight the agreement. cnn's sunlen surjoins me now from the white house. >> reporter: certainly this is a
6:21 am
big hit for them. senator schumer coming out a sta statement overnight saying he opposes this deal because he says quote, i believe iran will not change and under this agreement it will be able to achieve its dual goals of eliminating sanctions while ultimately retaining its nuclear power. quickly after we saw represent engel of new york who had a one on one meeting with president obama just last week he came out and announced his opposition to the deal among others. the white house, though has been down playing this pointing to a string of democrats who have jumped on board with the deal. most recently just yesterday senator shaheen from new york. the announcement came only after they potentially felt like enough democrats had jumped on board to support the deal.
6:22 am
this indicates some sort of confidence within the white house that they do have enough votes secured. the senate is set to debate this early next month when they return from recess. and president obama goes on a two week vacation today. he leaves for martha's vineyard where he will continue to drum up support. >> president obama is brushing off criticisms says he went too far in attacking democrats who oppose the iran deal. the president is make nothing apologies for that comparison. here's some of a wide ranging interview with cnn's fareed zacaria. >> reporter: you made a comparison. you said that iran's hard-liners were making common cause with republicans. it's come under a lot of criticism. >> what i said is absolutely true factually. the truth of the matter is
6:23 am
inside of iran the people most opposed to the deal are the revolutionary guard, the quds force, hard-liners who are opposed to any cooperation with the international community. the reason that mitch mcconnell and the rest of the folks in his caucus who opposed this jumped out and opposed it before they even read it before it was even posted is reflective of a idealogical commitment not to get a deal done. in that sense they do have a lot in common with hard liners who are much more satisfied with the status quo. >> and you can see all of the exclusive interview with the president this weekend. tune in sunday 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. eastern time. . russia is now the main suspect in the hacking of an e-mail server used by the
6:24 am
pentagon's joint chiefs of staff. that's according to a u.s. official familiar with the investigation. the pentagon says hackers did not penetrate any classified networks. but cnn sources say they did gain access to some sensitive information like the president's schedule. on the french rivieraliveier ya -- riviera they were robbed this weekend while they slept in a pricey villa. the burglars may have put anesthetic gas into the ventilation system to make them go to sleep. schools in taiwan are closed tooz a today as a powerful typhoon bears down on the island. . still to come carly fiorina's big night. how the former sillicon valley ceo made a big name for herself last night.

. and good morning. i'm carol costello. thank you so much for joining me. republican candidates packed the debate stage last night pitching their vision for this country. after the debates carly fiorina may have surged on google. joe johns is in iowa for us. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, carol. we watched the debate last night with 11 undecided republican voters. at the historical society, just about 50 minutes outside of des moines one of the big take-aways from that group is almost everybody had a negative reaction to the performance of
6:30 am
donald trump, especially the way he answered the very first question of the debate which was more or less about whether all of the candidates on the stage could support the ieventual republican nominee. >> done so not as a threat and not in again, an arrogant way, that just would not work in the presidency. >> before tonight, i would have voted for anyone of those people for president if they got the nominee. now after tonight, i could say i'd vote for nine of them. >> reporter: another strong reaction from the group came after trump was asked a question about comments he's made on social media and his assertion that he was more or less talking about rosie o'donnell. some of the women in the group did not like that. listen.
6:31 am
>> i diplomatdn't like his comments about women. and women make up half of the population and he's called them names like dogs and things. and he didn't even really take that back and he even made a negative comment to megyn kelly in the process. he's not going to get the women's vote. and women's issues are a hot topic according to the democrats even though it's kind of an old subject. still, i don't think he respects women. >> reporter: at the end of the debate most of the voters in that group have not told me they have not made up mare minds on who they're going to vote for. but they would like to hear more from ben carson and marco rubio. as far as bush goes they said he seemed just a little bit -- i think the word would be noncommittal and he wasn't very exciting. they want to hear a lot more
6:32 am
over the next weeks and months. >> nothing about john kasich? >> reporter: there were some people who said they liked john kasich. and they sort of lumped him in with the governor of wisconsin. there was some excitement there for him. but the overarching impression of the people in the group was that marco rubio and ben carson kind of knocked it out of the park. >> interesting. joe johns reporting live from des moines iowa this morning. thank you. well you could argue there was another breakout star from last night's debate. this was the happy hour debate. that would be carly fiorina. this morning on "new day" she had some strong words for donald trump on what some might call his sexist remarks. >> no one who claims to represent our party should ever be judgmental in tone or visit
6:33 am
ree -- any time people start calling people names it's unfair. it's uncalled for. it does not help our political debate. republicans and democrats alike are guilty of it. >> cnn political director is following that part of the story. fiorina was the star of the happy hour debate. so actually it was kind of sad when the candidates came out because there was no one in the audience. there were maybe eight people. it seemed like this was going to be a bust but for fiorina it definitely was not. >> reporter: she had a breakout night last night. she's going to get a fresh look from a lot of republican voters. i think carly fiorina accomplished two things last night. she showsed she is a tough
6:34 am
fighter and willing to take on her opponents. early on in that undercard debate, that happen hiy hour debate take a listen to what she said i here. >> i didn't get a phone call from bill clinton before i jumped in the race. did any of you get a phone call from bill clinton? i didn't. maybe because i didn't give money to the foundation or donated to hillary clinton's senate campaign. hillary clinton lies about e-mails. she's still defending planned parenthood and she's still her party's front runner. we need someone who cannot stumble before he even gets into the ring. >> reporter: this is exactly the kind of rhetoric carol, that the republican base is eager to hear. specifically taking on hillary
6:35 am
clinton. that's just red meat for them. and i think carly fiorina entered onto this stage in a way that she may propel herself, who knows, onto the big stage, the main stage come the next debate in september. >> very interesting. what about the rest of the participants in the happy hour debate? i can't even remember who they are right now. can you? you probably can because you know everything political. >> reporter: we saw rick perry and rick santorum on there. those are people who had been riding high at different points in the 2011-2012 cycle. but they weren't really able to break through despite fine performances. i do think carly fiorina just emerged as the star from this first debate. by the way, so much so that she was used in the second debate. clearly the moderators wanted to make sure to bring her into the second debate as well. >> yeah.
6:36 am
because if she were on stage with donald trump, that would have been very interesting, wouldn't it? >> reporter: it would be very interesting. especially imagine that interaction that we've seen so much between the fox moderator megyn kelly and donald trump and comments he made about women, the stuff that carly fiorina was speaking about on "new day." imagine to see that conversation take place in a real debate format on the same stage. here tes's the reason i mentioned september. the republican party nominees will debate in september right here on cnn. still to come confusion over that wing part found in the indian ocean has families of the malaysia airlines victims furious. we'll talk about that next.

this just in to the cnn newsroom, a source closing to the missing malaysian airlines flight investigation, telling cnn officials have not received any other relevant objects related to flight 370 besides that wing part and that suitcase. malaysian investigators stuck to their guns insisting they have found more debris including a seat cushion. in the meantime it's been more anguish for the families of the passengers on board, loved ones gathers outside the airline's offices last week after contradicting statements about the pieces found on shore.
6:42 am
>> reporter: this seems to be as much of a disconnect in this investigation as there has been in talking about the findings and providing the public not at least as you just mentioned the loved one of those on board very decisively and clearly there seem to be very much two camps in all of this the malaysians and what the politicians have to say and then the investigators. but there is one caveat. the investigators have to dot the is, cross the ts. they have to be very careful. while the malaysians want to give the family members -- let's take you through how this is working out from the information i'm getting. now, the malaysian teams on ree unionyou know reunion, speaking directly to cnn, saying they have identified
6:43 am
and found debris that his experts, malaysian experts have without a shadow of a doubt identified as from an aircraft, however, not from mh370. they then handed this in to the local police on reunion island. the local police have collated that and they have told us through a source close to the investigation on the island they are collecting carol, a lot of debris because of course everyone is helping. it's not just experts out there. it's local people. they are picking up everything they can find. he told us he's even found a pair of flip-flops. they are holding fire before they send everything to this laboratory in france. this source also told us -- sorry i'm not sure if it is a he or not. the source also told us i need to discuss with our authorities in paris to see what we send there and what we don't send. that conversation hasn't happened yet.
6:44 am
that would seem pretty much right given what the press conference that has just been held on reunion island has said. they would need analysis much more complex analysis and this is the place to do it. it would seem the malaysians have collected something. they've handed it in. but the french authorities are yet to decide how relevant they think it is before they send it here. now, of course all of this justshows the disconnect. they're extending their search. they're sending helicopters out into the air around reunion. 50 by 30 nautical mile search span now. still to come in the "newsroom," true or false, we fact check the candidates in last night's debate, next. i brought in some protein to get us moving. i'm new ensure active high protein.

>> there are a lot of things that keep me up at night. which is why i rely on you putting me to sleep. >> have fun feeding your rabbits, stewart. >> i'm jon stewart. i'm dumb. i'm stupid. nah-nah-nah. >> oh, that is awesome. john mccain. brian stelter, you were watching? >> i was waiting for the audience to walk out. some of them were in tears because of the humor and partly because stewart got emotional to the end. the payback segment was classic. the only person i wanted in the montage was donald trump. i guess he was busy getting ready for the debate. stewart went out in style. this is an episode his fans adored. i really liked his message about bs. he said it is all over the
6:59 am
place. it is in washington. it's everywhere. we have to have our bs meters finally tuned. here is what he said at the end. >> [ bleep ] gotten lazy and their work is easily detected. looking for it is a pleasant way to pass the time. like an eye spy or [ bleep ]. i say to you tonight, friends, the best defense against [ bleep ] is vigilance. if you smell something, say something. we'll be right back. >> in some ways that sums up his tenure on "the daily show" for 16 years. carol, there are a lot of tv network bosses that would love to hire him. >> i'm sure jon is counting on you, brian. how do you think his replacement will do? >> they will meet with trevor noah next week. they are not going with jon stewart.
7:00 am
they are staying with trevor noah. if we saw anything from last night, there is a lot of raw material for "the daily show" this fall. >> i know you wish jon stewart would stick around for one more show. >> long primary season ahead for trevor. >> brian, i appreciate it. the next hour of "cnn newsroom" starts now. >> good morning. i'm carol costello. donald trump lashing out saying he was treated unfairly on the republican debate which was the most watched debate in history. donald trump is the only candidate making the claim. i want you to listen to the donald who called in to nbc this morning. >> i thought the questions were than unfair but i can live with it. you are number one in the polls and they ask you tougher
7:01 am
questions. the other candidates got off stage and they said it was amazing those questions were unfair. i enjoyed the evening. i thought they were unfair. it's okay. it was an amazing evening. i'm sure it was a great success. >> it was a great success. upwards of 10 million people or more watched that debate. that would be a record. cnn's sara murray is in cleveland this morning. wow is all i have to say. >> reporter: good morning, carol. you are right. wow is a good way to put it. you see why so many people tuned in last night. it was a firy debate and candidates were not pulling punches. right out of the gate trump's presence made this a very different republican debate. a question about a pledge not to run an independent. >> raise your hand now if you won't make that pledge tonight. mr. trump. >> i cannot say i have to
7:02 am
respect the person if it is not me the person that wins. if i do win and i'm leading by a bit, that's what i want to do. i can totally make that pledge if i'm the nominee. >> reporter: as the gop crowd booed, rand paul's status dropped. >> he buys and sells politicians of all stripes. look look, he is already helpinghedges his bet on the clintons. >> reporter: most of the desire was not aimed at the competitor but the fox moderator. >> you called women fat pigs dogs slobs and disgusting animals. >> only rosie o'donnell. >> i think the big problem this country has is being politically
7:03 am
correct. i have been -- i've been challenged by so many people and i don't frankly have time for total political correctness. to be honest with you, this country doesn't have time either. honestly megyn, if you don't like it i'm sorry. i have been very nice to you, but i could not be based on the way you treated me but i won't do that. >> reporter: the biggest fireworks flew over trump's head between chris christie and rand paul over personal liberties for social security. >> when you are sitting in the sub committee just blowing hot air about this, you can say things like that. >> i don't trust obama with our records. if you want to give him a big hug again, go right ahead. >> you know you know senator paul you know the hugs i remember are the hugs i gave to
7:04 am
the families who lost their people on september 11th. >> reporter: all establishment eyes were on jeb bush to see if he showed fire in the belly. >> i believe the great majority of people coming here illegally have no other option. they want to provide for their families. we need to control our border. there should be a program for illegal status. earn legal status. >> reporter: bush's former colleague, marco rubio. ohio's governor john kasich had this moment. >> i just went to a wedding of a friend of mine who happens to be gay. because somebody doesn't think the way i do doesn't mean i can't care about them or love them. if one of my daughters happened to be that of course i would love them and would accept them. >> reporter: these candidates know a key test for many gop
7:05 am
voters is who can best take on hillary clinton. >> for the cyber attack with russia the other day, it's sad to think right now, but probably the russian and chinese government know more about hillary clinton's e-mail server than the members of the united states congress. and that has put our national security at risk. >> reporter: but the standout moments against clinton did not happen at this debate but hours earlier with the under-cards. >> hillary clinton lies about benghazi. she lies about e-mails. she is still defending planned parenthood and she is still her party's frontrunner. >> reporter: now last night, donald trump put out a press release saying he was far and away the winner of the debate. as you pointed out, we hear complaining from him about the unfair questions and fox moderateor moderators. carol. >> sara murray thank you. donald trump insists his
7:06 am
poll numbers will soar after the debate. this was trump's chance to look presidential and serious republican challenger. right from the get-go he made clear he has his own agenda. >> is there anyone on stage, and can i see hands, who is unwilling tonight to pledge your support to the eventual nominee of the republican party and pledge to not run an independent campaign against that person? again, we are looking for you to raise your hand now if you won't make that pledge tonight. mr. trump. mr. trump, to be clear, you are standing on a republican primary debate stage. >> i fully understand. >> let's talk about this. with me is david gerken.
7:07 am
and alex costolas. thanks for being here this morning. i appreciate it. i'll begin with you, alex. how do you suppose republican voters will take donald trump's challenge? >> most of them will not be thrilled tha take off his jersey his team's jersey and put on the other team's jersey in the middle of the game. with his core vote and base and the vote he has now, they will be fine with. that they won't have a problem. it probably won't change his poll numbers very much. he is a protest candidate. his vote right now hates washington. it's an anti-washington establishment vote. he could skin a baby seal on the steps of the capitol and his
7:08 am
voters would say that's great. >> donald trump said fox news was out to get him. did donald trump have a point after they were being mean to him for a reason? >> it was tough. it -- i'm sorry, david. i stepped on your question. >> no, no, go ahead, alex. >> oh, if you can't -- that's why these things are contests. these debates are supposed to be tough. that's how we test the measure of the man who will be the leader of the free world. if you can't stand up to megyn kelly, how do you stand up to putin? whining makes you weak and less presidential. he is not helping himself. >> so david, i wonder if you are an adviser to president donald trump, can you imagine that? >> well i can't imagine the seal on the steps of the capitol. i'm still getting over that one. the normal rules would say that
7:09 am
trump got hurt last night. he stumbled on the question. he was narcicisstic. i want to reserve the right if someone is taking the country off track to go in another direction, but i want to be the republican nominee. instead, he gave a narcicisstic answer. he gave megyn kelly a boorish answer. and the whining afterwards. although when you heard him on nbc in the clip, i thought he managed to gracefully to get away from that. by normal rules, he would have been hurt by that. he is playing by different rules. we don't know how much longer this will go on. i think a lot of voters were turned off last night. the republican party should recognize as well that he delivered a gift to the party last night. donald trump's presence with what brought in the 10 million
7:10 am
viewers. that gave every one of 17 candidates a chance to audition in front of a massive audience and donors and press. some people really took advantage of that last night. some people emerged as stronger candidate in front of a big audience. >> oh, david looking at the glass half full. i want to get donald trump's comments about women. to me that was the moment that stood on the. replay this moment when megyn kelly addressed donald trump. >> you've called women you don't like fat pigs dogs slobs and disgusting animals. your twitter account -- >> only rosie o'donnell. >> no it wasn't. your twitter account -- [ applause ] >> thank you. >> for the record it was well
7:11 am
beyond rosie o'donnell. you once tonight a contestant it would be a pretty picture to see her on her knees. >> honestly megyn, i'm sorry. i could be nice to you, but i may not be based on the way you treated me but i won't do that. >> so alex according to a quinnipiac poll 40% of women said they would never vote for donald trump. he certainly did not help himself, did he? >> no. think of the trump vote in two parts. the white hot anti-washington corps that don't see him as president. they want to set washington on fire. he can say outrageous things like that and he won't hurt himself. last week, trump was growing beyond the protest vote. it wasn't just anti-washington, it was pro-trump. they thought he might be reaganish or grow to be a
7:12 am
president. that's dead now. that's what the megyn kelly moment did. it killed his opportunity for growth. the fire that is donald trump is now contained. it's not going anywhere. he is not growing. he will hang on to that white hot core his numbers may dip or rise a tiny bit. he is no longer a threat to dominate and control the republican party. that one moment that you noticed and you thought was the most important, that's what did it. >> david, i agree with alex. what do you think? >> i think absolutely in the republican party is starting to have a serious problem that they have to address. how will they connect with women? even as they all plan to defund planned parenthood and the like. there is extremely little conversation of the needs of women and trying to ensure equality and respect for women and health care services and child care services. the things one expects from a modern democracy. the republicans with ten guys up
7:13 am
on stage, no woman. they are not being sensitive to the conversation that's going on around the country. they ought to hope that carly fiorina's numbers go up to get a woman on stage next time and debate him in september. i think people need to see representatives like women up there which are important to the republican party. >> okay. i'll leave it there. carly fiorina had a good night. who knows. the cnn debate is scheduled in september. we take the top ten candidates. david and alex thank you. donald trump will be on cnn tonight with don lemon. that is an interview you will not want to miss. the white house losinges a key democratic ally in the nuclear deal. chuck schumer says he will fight the agreement when it faces the congressional vote next month.
7:14 am
that could mean problems for president obama and what he is trying to do with iran. cnn's sunlen serfaty has more for you from the white house this morning. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. schumer's support would have been key for the white house, but this is a big blow for them. schumer overnight announcing that he does not support this deal saying, quote because i believe iran will not change and under this agreement, it will be able to achieve the dual goals of eliminating sanctions and nuclear power. this will cause the democrats to come out and voice opposition to the deal. we saw that after schumer. others came out and said they are against the deal. engel met with president obama last week. that is notable. the white house has been downplaying this announcement by schumer pointing to a string of other democrats that come out
7:15 am
this week in support of this deal. just yesterday, senator gillibrand. a white house official suggesting that the announcement by schumer came after they had enough democratic support. so really carol, indicating the white house on some level potentially feels security in the number of votes they have secured. the senate will debate this in early september. they are out on recess for the end of the month. president obama will start his two-week vacation today to martha's vineyard where he will continue to work the phones trying to sell the deal. >> all right. sunlen serfaty, thank you. still to come someone hacked a pentagon server putting information at risk. guess who the prime suspect is. t your dell 2-in-1 laptop gives you the spunk for an unsanctioned selfie. that's that new gear feeling. get this high performance laptop bundle for only $399.

echos of the cold war reverberating in the computer age. experts telling cnn that russia is the suspect in the hacking of the server of the pentagon. we have barbara starr with more. >> reporter: moscow is a leading theory of the hacking of the unclassified computer system that 4,000 civilians and military members who work for the joint chiefs of staff, including general martin dempsey. hacked into two weeks ago and they are still trying to get that system back online and back up and running. the reason they say russia.
7:21 am
why? a sophisticated attempt to insert malicious code. the chinese tend to drain the data out of the system we're told. the russians have the signature of trying to go in and cause trouble. such a sophisticated attack the pentagon view is it could only have been done essentially by a state entity. a government such as russia or china. is that absolute? no. they are still looking at other possibilities. the leading theory is the russians. they believe this hacking attack was very much directed, targeted at the very particular unclassified e-mail server used by the chairman of the joint chiefs and his staff. really interesting. was it a message from moscow? carol. >> interesting and scary. barbara starr, thank you. checking other top stories. eight people are dead and 400

7:27 am
i want them to know that they do have a safe and reliable system. together, we're building a better california. fresh off the debate stage in cleveland, new jersey governor chris christie is expected to speak to conservative voters in atlanta. the three day grassroots is called the red state gathering. donald trump is getting most of the attention, but some were not impressed. frank luntz had this to say after trump called him a clown. >> what will you say after you won't guarantee the republican nominee and you call women horrific names. you insult the moderator of the debate. you don't answer questions specifically.
7:28 am
when you can't even explain why you went bankrupt? i have to tell you this was an amazing debate performance. not amazing because it was effective, but amazing because i saw the destruction of the presidential campaign over those two hours. >> all right. let's check in with cnn's mark preston at the red state gathering. the folks there agree with frank luntz? >> reporter: i have to tell you last night they had a debate watch party. 1,000 of the grassroots activists gathered in the ballroom in atlanta. when donald trump was answering his questions, he actually got a pretty good reception. i have to tell you the reason why is he talked about anti-establishment. he talked anti-establishment tone. donald trump certainly alienated a lot of republicans last night, there is a segment that likes donald trump. what frank is saying in the end, we probably will see the destruction of a donald trump campaign but he will still have his support, carol.
7:29 am
>> so besides governor chris christie who is speaking at the event? >> reporter: we will see chris christie shortly here at this gathering. rick perry the former texas governor will be here. we will see the likes of bobby jindal and carly fiorina who had a fantastic debate. so will marco rubio. we will very jeb bush. >> i know you will be there to bring it to us. thank you, mark preston reporting live from atlanta this morning. and good morning. i'm carol costello. thank you for joining me. donald trump was the star of the first primetime republican debate. no doubt about that. there was another name mentioned a lot and she wasn't on the primetime stage. that would be hillary clinton.
7:30 am
>> if i am our nominee, how is hillary clinton going to lecture me about living paycheck to paycheck? >> unlike hillary clinton who has a radical position in support for planned parenthood. >> if hillary is the candidate, which i doubt, that would be a dream come true. >> i didn't get a phone call from bill clinton. maybe it is because i hadn't given money to the foundation or donated to his wife's senate campaign. >> we will not win by doing what obama and hillary clinton do each day. dividing the country. >> a person who has been filled with scandals and could not lead. of course, i'm talking about hillary clinton. >> with hillary clinton, i said be at my wedding and she came to my wedding. you know what? she had no choice. i didn't know her money would be used on private jets going all over the world. it was. >> let's talk about that. chris is here the democratic strategist and communications director for john edwards. good morning. thank you for being with me.
7:31 am
>> good morning. >> so carly fiorina had the most biting critique of hillary clinton. she called her a liar and that certainly resonated. fiorina, by the way, is trending big on twitter as a democrat. what do you make of that? >> she clearly did well. part of that had to do in an ironic twist, she wasn't in the primetime debate. she was able to get more attention and more time and she took it seriously. she stood out. i guess credit to her campaign. what that bodes for candidacy is still too early to tell. she is clearly making a race here to try to position herself to potentially be more of a vp. if she keeps putting debates like this on the table, she could do well down the road. >> she seems to be the best most effective critic against hillary clinton. why do you think that is? >> well watching the fox news
7:32 am
debate you had ten gentlemen up there and when they were talking about issues in particular about women's issues. i remember the exchange with donald trump and megyn. it was just so insensitive and it came across so mysoginistic. i think carly fiorina, obviously has a better understanding of how to talk about the issues. she was biting. her criticisms were unfair and outrageous but style and approach comes across softer. that does have an impact on voters. >> interesting. so hillary clinton, herself, was tweeting during the debate. apparently she was watching. i want to put up examples of her tweets. one said watch the gop debate. bet you feel like donating to a democrat right now. there was this one. if gop attacks on planned parenthood feel like an assault on women's health.
7:33 am
it is because they are. oh by the way, kim kardashian with this tweet. she attended a clinton fund-raiser with her husband kanye. there you have it. a tweet with kim kardashian. does it help or hurt clinton that everybody on the stage mentioned her name and none of the other democratic contenders? >> in a weird way, it helps. it makes the focus about secretary clinton. the reality is the republicans are not going to switch over and focus on any other candidate unless the dynamics of the race change. that doesn't seem to be happening. you will have almost this strange firing squad where they began shooting at hillary clinton. and donald trump. the two names you heard directly or indirectly more in the two debates were donald trump and hillary clinton. kind of ironic twist. >> let's just -- i don't think -- concentrate.
7:34 am
there will be democratic debates eventually. they won't occur until october. that made martin o'malley. why there are only six democratic debates? why can't we be on the stage now? >> i don't have a good answer. i think there should be debates and debates early. i think secretary clinton is an accomplished candidate. she will be in my opinion the nominee. the mechanics and process you go about nominating do matter. for whatever reason the party chose to push debates until october. it makes no sense. you are better off having debates early to allow the candidates if you will all of them, to have opportunities to speak to voters. let me tell you something. i have been in situation where is i have advised candidates. if you have one mistake and it is too late it can be
7:35 am
incredibly damaging. >> interesting. chris kofinis, thank you. >> thank you. >> the republican contenders will debate on cnn next month on wednesday, september 16th to be exact. the democrats as i said will have their first debate on cnn. you can catch that on tuesday, october 13th. still to come in the newsroom searchers claim they found more debris from flight 370. so why are only two parts being looked at? and ea ke i skipped lunch. why? because red lobster's crabfest is back. and i'm diving into so much crab, so many ways. like crab lover's dream with luscious snow and king crab legs and rich crab alfredo or this snow crab bake. who knew crab goes with everything? whoever put crab on this salmon, that's who. with flavors like these, i'm almost too excited to eat! hey i said almost.

despite stepping up search efforts, french officials say
7:40 am
only two objects believed to be from the missing malaysia airline flight are being investigated in a french lab. a source telling cnn, paris officials have not received any other relevant objects related to mh-370 besides that wing part and suitcase. this after malaysian investigators stuck to thursdayeir guns this morning and saying there is more items that were found. malaysia says this is a piece of the plane. the french say hold on. we're conducting more tests. saima mohsin is in toulouse france with more on this. hi saima. >> reporter: you hit the nail on the head. two ways of dealing with releasing information. malaysians keen from the start, carol. i was there when the plane first went missing. they would release every bit of information when they had when they got it because they believe
7:41 am
that proved transparency and willingness to share with the families and media. on the other hand the french are doing this strictly with their procedures in mind. they are dotting the i's and crossing the t's. all the tests need to be carried out before they release the results. what i think has happened is the malaysian experts, experts and local people searching on reunion island. the malaysian experts have found this debris. let's remind everyone it is what they said. the malaysian transportation ministry. he believed it to be window panes and aluminum material. all interior material from an aircraft. he confirmed he believes it from an aircraft but not crucially mh-370. they handed it in to the police on reunion island. the police on reunion island are
7:42 am
collecting it but not sending it straight to the lab. they are waiting for confirmation. they will go through it. a source close to the investigation and in a press conference earlier today will go through this. until paris says yes, send it to us we are not sending it. we believe the debris is still on the island. it is local people searching and experts searching. also carol, the search has now been stepped up. 30 by 50 nautical miles. quite an expanse of sea. they employed an aircraft and a number of helicopters. they are pointing out all they are doing is going out to sea and looking around. 13 people on board the aircraft alone. searching for debris that might be floating. they don't have underwater expertise.
7:43 am
they may find more items relevant to be brought to the lab in the south of france. >> thanks saima mohsin. checking other stories for you. good news for the economy. the july jobs report shows 215,000 jobs were added last month. the unemployment rate at 5.3%. that's a seven-year low. new york city health department ordering the testing of all buildings with water coolers. after people have been confirmed with legionnaires' disease. still to come on the newsroom the hunt for the religious guru suspected of molesting children. what is being done to track him down next.

i was about 12 years old. i was between 12 and 14 years old. >> i was 11 years old when it started happening. >> the first time that he put his hand on my shirt, i remember i felt like it was exactly what i thought it was. i thought it was inappropriate touch. it was pretty devastating to me. >> with me now to talk about this case and the upcoming episode of "the hunt" is cnn contributor dr. lawrence. >> good morning. >> a texas swami? how are these girls involved?
7:50 am
explain to us what a swami is? was it a cult? >> absolutely. it was a fellow who came to austin texas and built an asram which is a place to live and pray. collected 100 people who were his devotees. he was the center of their universe. they wanted to understand the mysteries of hindu and they sat at his feet. he was like their god. their saint. anything he wanted they got. they gave up all their worldly possessions. this is what they did. this is what made them happy. >> there was an investigation and this swami was arrested and then what happened? >> he was charged with 20 counts and he was actually convicted. i don't understand why, but law
7:51 am
