9:00 am
d day. [applause] you tell us what you want to know and my phenomenal team here, dagen, cheryl and our contributors, mike murphy, morgan, thank you so much. >> great year, maria. maria: because of you guys. "varney & company" begins right now. stuart, take it away. stuart: congratulations, maria, thank you very much indeed. all right. donald trump, oh, he went after the liberal media yesterday. and then he doubled down at night. good morning, everyone. it was entertaining and we're not kind of used to that from politicians. he blasted reporters for their questions on vets and on hannity, he singled out katie cure couric for he says deceptive reporting on guns. and tomorrow, there will be a major foreign policy speech, but she's not accessible to the media, very different from trump. who is winning?
9:01 am
the latest national poll shows that trump is catching up, hillary is four points ahead and only 2 points ahead when third party candidates are included. a chilling headline in america, a woman gives birth to a child with microcephaly. she carried a child with the zika virus. "varney & company" is about to begin. ♪ >> happy birthday to you ♪ ♪ happy birthday ♪ >> look at the graphic. [laughter] >> very funny. do you know how much it costs to create fake balloons? happy birthday indeed. marks one year since the move to the 9 a.m. to noon slot from "varney & company." the entire new fbn lineup is
9:02 am
the fastest growing network on cable, thanks to you. you're much appreciated, thank you very much, everyone. and let's get to our bread and butter, which is the stock market. i reget to say there will be a lower opening. down 60 or 70 points. we're coming off four straight months of gain, which is the longest winning streak in two years. today, of course, is the first day of june, the first day of the new month. let's see how we do. down at the opening bell. look at oil, backing down from $50 a barrel. that's why stocks are down, oil down, stocks are down. the stock to watch today though, amazon, again. all-time high yesterday, it will open around 719 this morning. 720, a couple of bucks from the all-time high. still way up there. how about this? under amour says sports authority's bankruptcy will hurt stock of the that's down at the bell. and check nike, it's going to open lower, it's a dow stock, a couple down, 3, 4% down.
9:03 am
you've got to tell me, ashley, why are two sports companies in trouble? >> under amour and nike for that matter are going to be affected by sports authority. the sports authority went into bankruptcy protection in march. under amour hoped they could reorganize and reemerge. when they put the forecast together, it's based on that. now we know that sports authority is going to be liquidated. it's done and therefore, under amour and nike are having to scale back their revenue forecast because they're not going to have this outlet. stuart: look it, that's an interesting point. i want to move on to michael cors. i describe them as democratic luxury, luxury just within reach of the middle class. it's up nicely liz: they have reasonable pricing and good looking clothes. i mean, that's the bottom line for women. stuart: is that your value judgment? liz: no, it's-- it's not my value judgment. it's coming from wall street
9:04 am
analysts they're reasonably priced clothes. the upper end is hurting. they said that people are going to court spending. stuart: liz shops at kors. and chrysler. ashley: we're looking to may up, 1% versus last year and it's on the positive side. and compared to the other major automakers. stuart: the stock is down at 7. and let's move on to politics. donald trump, he doubled down on slamming the media. this is from hannity last night. he starts by referring to katie couric who deceptively edited a gun issue. >> i've given interviews and i said, wait a minute, they're not covering me that way. the best thing you can do is put down a tape recorder next to you. they make things up. the press is really dishonest,
9:05 am
i don't mean anybody, but a big portion of them especially the political press, the most dishonest people. they're bad people. stuart: they're bad people. relatively restrained trump you should have seen him credit morning. joining us is arizona campaign chair for trump. he antagonized the media with his performance. this could be a negative for mr. trump as you approach the november election. >> i'm not sure and i don't want to pile on or anything, but confidence ratings in the media are at an all-time low. stuart: join the trump band wagon, pile on, son. >> it's sort of low hanging fruit if you're aware how the public feels about the media right now. so, but you know, i have seen it myself. i've been with mr. trump and if you google washington post dewitt the first article that pops up last july was a conversation we guaranteed by the reporter was completely off
9:06 am
the record and six days later he wrote the article. he thought this was off the record, and he said mr. dewitt, i'm a reporter, everything is on the record all the time. most the media are good and hard working, but there are some bad apples. it's annoying when you see those pop up. stuart: a new quinnipiac poll, women picking hillary over trump by 24 points, that's women going for hillary by 24 points more than trump. and it's a statistical tie when it comes to unfavorable ratings with the two candidates. bottom line, those are two big negatives for trump. how is he going to get over them, jeff? >> well, again, we're not to the again jet and he hasn't really started on, you know, exposing they are negatives. she has considerable negatives with women herself.
9:07 am
once we get to the general, and we're fighting that fight, i really think you'll see the numbers change. he hasn't started yet. you know, all the money hasn't been put into this race yet, but i think that once that that gets going, i think you'll see that change a lot. mr. trump is appealing to everybody. they said the same thing about hispanics and yet, he-- i always remember in florida he go the more votes than rubio, and cruz combined, two latino heritage candidates, in a very hispanic state. so he will do well. stuart: you've had a great year and that's why you're always smiling. we appreciate that first thing in the morning. jeff dewitt. >> thank you, stuart. stuart: more from the quinnipiac poll, release this had morning. 52-41 trump would be a better job creator. 49-41, trump would be more effective handling isis.
9:08 am
and he wins on big issues. >> those are big issues and those are issues that hillary is promoting for herself. hillary clinton has wrapped herself in the obama legacy of, you know, several years now of job creation, but the truth is, everyone knows those jobs added have been coming for a long steady stream, but they're inadequate. and i think, you know, the voters want to see wages go up, instead of artificial changes to wages. and they want to see-- that's what trump is going to offer. we understand that president obama is delivering a speech in e elkha elkhart, indiana, around 3:00. and showing that he wants to jump into the race. >> his approval ratings have been going up as the job market and wages have tightened a little bit. hillary has tied herself to that. interesting on the week the new york times wrote an editorial said please do not raise rates,
9:09 am
federal reserve and the reason is that could definitely take the wind out of the economic sails, bring down his approval ratings and that's incredibly important for hillary clinton. stuart: well said, liz. back to you later and more on the president's speech this afternoon later. i'm going to texas and we're looking at southwest of houston. more flooding, terrible, on the brazos river. it crested, at an extraordinary 54 feet. the only way to get around in some communities is by boat. you can see it there. an additional one to three inches of rain expected later this week. now, what's this talk, liz, about snakes coming out. >> the water moccasin, a poisonous, poisonous water snake, finding it in their homes and front porches. it is dangerous and can put you in shock. and you have to watch out for things like hepatitis whenever
9:10 am
there's flooding. stuart: animal rights stop when you see a water moccasin in your room. i'm going to the gorilla story which won't go away. now, the parents are being investigated for possible criminal charges. what's with that? plus, a major health concern from the migrants flooding into europe. the deadly flesh eating parasite. we've got the stories for you and plus, united health care is pulling out of the obamacare exchange in california. the stock has gone straight up this year since the company announced it's scaling back on obamacare. remember this? >> but we had to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it away from the fog of the controversy.
9:11 am
9:12 am
9:13 am
>> if you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period.
9:14 am
if you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan, period. stuart: well, didn't quite work out, did it? remember when president obama said that? now, united health care is set to leave the california market. e-mack, how much money are they losing? liz: 475 million last year. and primera blue cross, and humana is ditching markets as well and profits are down nearly half. what's happening, many people are left with only one insurer in the state and see that in alabama and alaska. stuart: look at that. the stock will open higher liz you want to know why? >> because they're leaving california liz: they're getting the premium rate increases. in new york state nearly 46% increase united health. on average 17%. stuart: back off, in new york
9:15 am
state, premium will go up for an average-- liz: 17%, but for some nearly 46%. so, i'll tell you something, that's the hidden story of obamacare and you wonder when the consumer protection agency is going to step in and start protecting people. stuart: that's one, not going to happen liz: it won't happen, but-- >> no, you may not say anything yet. wait for it. here we go. how about this for a headline, doctors now fear a flesh eating disease has been brought to europe by syrian migrants. the aforementioned and recognized dr. marc siegel is here. wait a second, when i see a headline, flesh eating organism, i think i'm going to be set up. that's awful. i can imagine putting out that headline as a way of getting money for treatment. where am i going wrong? >> they're putting out the headline so people put eyeballs on it. money follows eyeballs, but
9:16 am
here is the thing, just like with zika, there's a barrier, it's called a sand fly. you can't get that unless that sand fly is around. that sand fly is all over syria and the middle east. so the refugees are spreading it all over the middle east around turkey, lebanon, junior junior jordan. it causes is he veering scarring on the skien, affect the mouth, nose, mucus membranes. it's treatable, but hard to get a hold of the treatments. in the united states most of the treatments are not approved. and vast majority of cases do not die from it. stuart: everybody says, all right, flesh eating organism, is it going to come here. you said you can't get this organism this condition unless you've been bitten by a sand fly. we don't have infected sand flies in europe or america, so it's not coming here. >> it's all over south america,
9:17 am
it's all over brazil, it's not coming here. stuart: we've known about it for a long time. the only reason we've got the headline because syrian migrants are taking it to europe. >> that's right, it's an ancient problem, it's huge around the middle east and south america, it's not coming here. stuart: i'm going to repeat the question, does it kill? >> it can kill in one form, viceral. it does kill, but most the time it does not. stuart: do you believe that that headline was a scare? >> i wrote a book on that, totally agree with you, that's designed to scare and your other point, once you get people afraid money follows and they'll put more money in it. this disease needs more money put into it, but not for this reason. stuart: i hate to discount a threat of a medical condition like this, almost walk away
9:18 am
from that, but at the same time i'm not going to buy into the hype. i think you agree with this. >> and you can harvest this after several weeks before you get the lesions. it's not coming here and not something that we need to worry about. stuart: is it not possible that we'll have sand flies in america infected with this flesh eating organism? that could happen? >> well, no, we have sand flies, and they're not going to be infected. same thing with zika, such a burd burden so many infected before it affects our sand fly population. stuart: ford motor sales. ashley: down 5.9%, however, with record it's about the truck. the f-50 series up 9%, ford vans achieved the best may sales in years. there are strong areas,
9:19 am
especially in the truck sales, continuing to do well. stuart: well, cheap gas, you buy a truck. look at me liz: you love your van. stuart: i do. the best vehicle, dollar for dollar, i've ever bought in my life liz: what is it. stuart: the chrysler town and country. this is not a commercial. we're going to open lower, substantially down lower, down 80-odd points for the dow industrials. nike, it's a dow stock, it's going to be way down. looking maybe 6% down and it's got a downgrade from morgan stanley. 90 will affect the overall market. certainly the dow. venezuela, collapsing, now, we have reports they're running out of basic necessities, no toilet paper, no bread. more on that after the break. and an actual tragic story out of new jersey. the first baby with zika related birth defects born in the united states. full details on that coming up, too. v

9:22 am
9:23 am
>> oil is down this morning. a 2% drop. oil down, stocks down. that's exactly what is happening this wednesday morning. how about a luxury brands michael kors, democratic luxury, okay? demand for hand bags and accessories rose in the americas.
9:24 am
the company's going to buy back a billion dollars worth of stock and it's up this morning. now this. venezuela, they're running out of simple necessity. no bread, no sugar, no toilet paper liz: toothpaste, soap, shampoo, it's flat-out. they're essentially wiped out. what's happening right now. we already know that lufthansa and other airlines are not flying into venezuela. they're basically also suffering from a drought. theres' no-- there's rolling blackouts. this country is under collapse and we have yet to hear from democratic candidate bernie sanders who has received the comments as you reported yesterday on the crisis. stuart: he's the democratic socialist in the american election and i say that venezuela's collapse is a result of socialism, am i wrong, liz? >> no, sadly they've mismanaged the enormous stock pile of oil wells. 80% of the factories and
9:25 am
companies are shut down, running out of foreign reserves and likely any minute to default on their debt and it's totally because they've been buying voters off for decades with handouts and excess wages and all the kinds of things that eventually will torpedo an economy and it's torpedoing this one. stuart: it's socialism that's the problem. it just is, that's the way it is. we are, in fact, moments away from the opening bell on wall street. we're going to be down quite a few points, 80-odd points. the reason is, oil down, stocks down. look at amazon near an all-time high. and jeff bezos is talking up the company's artificial intelligence plans ai could be huge. and when i spoke to amazon's ai assistant, alexa, roll that tape. >> alexa, who is ashley webster. ashley: oh, boy. >> ashley webster is a business
9:26 am
news journalist for the fox business network, a news channel that he joined in 2007 and overseas markets editor. stuart: alexa, is ashley webster british or american? >> hmmm.

9:27 am
in my asthma treatment with breo. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo opens up airways to help improve breathing for a full 24 hours. breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo could be a missing piece for you. see if you're eligible for 12 months free at mybreo.com.

♪ >> wednesday morning, on wall street. and we are going to be down at the opening bell probably 70 or 80 points, maybe a bit more. the reason for that is oil down, stocks down. bang, it's 9:30, off we go, off and running on a wednesday morning. the dow has opened 43 points-- 51 points down, 17-7 is where we are. i want to look at amazon. that stock is an all-time record high, that was yesterday. i think that's-- was that the amazon close or was that today? a current quote or yesterday's quote. that's a current quote. ashley: looks like it. stuart: close to hitting another all-time high. that's going to be the stock of the day. ashley: doesn't show current to me, 720 is current. stuart: that's yesterday's price so 720 on amazon as we speak. ashley is here, liz is here,
9:31 am
dan in chicago and shah galani next to me. amazon at 720 a share, with you love it or hate me or tell me, it's too expensive? >> i love the company and don't understand the stock. and to me, amazon is an enigma inside a mystery wrapped in a riddle. i don't-- >> that's churchill. >> that's a churchill. and exactly what he was describi describing, i don't understand it. and it's a brilliant operating set of businesses if he breaks up in a couple of years will be worth the sum of the parts probably times two or three. stuart: but if it controls 20% of all retail sales in five years, you've got yourself a winner. >> it's going to have a 1% profit margin on their sales, and that's ridiculous. i don't understand it. they're finally making money, but a massive amount of sales, 1% profit margin? unheard of.
9:32 am
stuart: okay. dan, you know a thing or two about profit margins and toppiness in stocks. what do you say about amazon? >> i tend to agree with shah. seems we do that a lot. i like the stock, the company i should say, they seem to hit on all cylinders all the time, but it's a bit pricey and 1% doesn't cut it. somewhere down the lane, obviously shall the market's anticipating it's going to get there, but i'm not buying it right now. i'm waiting for a break. if you see a break, it's probably chance to get in, but not right now. stuart: jeff bezos was talking about artificial intelligence and what he was going to do with it within amazon. >> he basically said you could tell it what to do with speech, it will do it. we're on the golden era with amazon era, alexa. maybe start the washington machine, open the garage door, this is a sleeper hit for amazon and it's now better than the-- it's basically, it's going to
9:33 am
be the new iphone, a must-have item in your daily routine. stuart: i think that he's going to take artificial intelligence further that the computer does think for you. >> and it does think for you. general motors motors sales not too great. ashley: general motors sales down 18%, worse than expected, but when you look at individual brands, buick down 22%. cadillac down 16. chevy down 18. gmc down 14. not a very good month for general motors. stuart: the stocks taking it on the chin. just holding at $30 per share. how about this for-- there's a couple of big name sportswear stocks which are down. under amour, it says that sports authority is going to be liquidated. we know that, it's in bankruptcy and it's going to hurt sales. so, under amour opens down 4% this morning, at 35. i've got news on nike as well. first, what's this about sports authority? >> well, they've originally based numbers on the fact that they believe that sports authority would go into
9:34 am
bankruptcy and reemerge. not going to happen. so those numbers when it's based on that, the outlook has dropped a bit. stuart: when i see under amour, i see jordan spieth the golfer, steph curry, the basketball player. it's down. would you buy it? >> no, it's at a dangerous level. the ceo talked own, but in year to date they're down almost 9.1%. >> nike is down as well. nike is a dow stock, i think it's down 4% maybe more than that. ashley: down 3%. stuart: down 3%, there you have it. what's with that? >> well, they've got the downgrade and also, brought down the price target to 60 bucks and that's a downgrade and they've been under pressure from under amour and they'll pick up negative flak from
9:35 am
sports authority. stuart: not helping the dow down 112 points. the price of oil down a buck 14. nike down 3%. overall look at it, down 113 points for the dow industrials. i'm going to call these forgotten stocks because we don't mention them that often, but a lot of people own them. start with general electric, dropping below $30 a share and it's down 3% on this calendar year. ibm, up 11% on the year, down a buck today. at&t, you remember them? up 13% this year, down 15 cents today. johnson and johnson, up 9% on the year and down a fraction today. nobody talks much about these stocks anymore. they used to. and-- >> they're not exciting and what ge is a great example. they've done so much restructuring of the balance sheet. it should be in great shape and not going anywhere and they picked a decent dividend, but
9:36 am
it's not getting mom and pop investors interested again. there's nobody else coming on board. >> so many people i know own a little bit of ge or a little bit of ibm. 20 years ago-- >> no one is adding. and then we have general mills, they are recalling millions of pounds of flour. give me the story, nicole and the stock, too. nicole: this is an abundance of caution that they're doing exactly that, recalling flour products. gold medal, general mills gold medal, won dra and signature kitchen flowers, e. coli jut break. 38 people have been sickened with e. coli. no one has died. dehydration and the like and other symptoms. half of those people were cooking with flour. it means, it doesn't have a direct correlation and general mills says we're going through our plants and recalling the flour and start over.
9:37 am
make sure it's not us. kellogg recalled their kashi granola as well. stuart: a new iphone is going to come out every three hours rather than every two years, what's with that? >> extending the cycle. it means the next major iphone launch now wouldn't happen until 2017 iphone sales are slowing down at the same time. stuart: and you've got developers i understand, they're not making apps for the apple watch. ashley: that's been a complete bust. that's a real indication that the watch is not catching on because no one is making apps for it. it's merely seen as a companion to the iphone. there are rumors out there, there's a conference later this month where apple may, i say may, release something new on the watch, but those rumors are not particularly strong. in the meantime, i think you can call it a bust. stuart: okay, mcdonald's given
9:38 am
away a golden chicken nugget. [laughter] and there is a headline for you. like willy wonka, explain this one liz: you have to be in japan. it's basically a contest to find the nugget thief, identify it. stuart: what's that? liz: that's the golden nugget worth about $1500. it's going to be hidden inside a box of chicken mcnuggets in japan, you have to win it in japan. stuart: a thin sliver of gold leaf? liz: no, it's a solid gold nugget. stuart: and what is the gold mcnugget give away, anything to say at all, dan? >> my bent right now, what are the odds somebody actually swallows it, not knowing it. that's what i would be worried about. stuart: i think that mcdonald's
9:39 am
stock is down, no connection whatsoever. the dallas federal reserve says that millennials can't get anything done at work because they're wasting time on social media. give me that story, ashley irk this is interesting. this is a story that was put out by the dallas fed. i think survey of manufacturing activity and included in that report, they get feedback from the factory managers and everything, they were complaining about the new overtime rules that extends the threshold. they've noticed the work output of millennials, if you get 60% out of what they're supposed to do that's more than they're getting. they're spending more time on social media, and texting and not involved. millennials on the factory floor, not very good employees. stuart: anything to that to that, shah. >> and social media, everybody is attached to their smart phones and computers and devices. that doesn't surprise me.
9:40 am
i think that's probably going to be continue to be the trend. in terms of productivity, that's worrisome. stuart: the millennials go home at 5:00, 6:00, 7:00, they're still on social media responding to work requests, no? >> that's an interesting point, that dallas fed report separate from that said the manufacturers saying we're going to have to hire people to micromanage these millennials if they're social media and texting and that's going to hurt our bottom line. stuart: there's been a whole generation just trashed right there. all right, everybody, dan is in chicago and shah is here. thank you very much indeed. you guys are staying. and check out the big board, this is almost the low of the day, we're down 114 points. 17-6 is where we are. the rule this morning so far, oil down, stocks down. oil is down more than a buck. donald trump goes right after the mainstream media and shows them exactly how much he has raised for veterans. meanwhile, hillary clinton plans a foreign policy speech.
9:41 am
the person who pressed the reset butten with putin and in charge during benghazi is giving a foreign policy speech. got it. and the parents of the child who fell in with the gorilla could face charges? were they negligent? ♪

9:44 am
>> a development in the egy egyptair flight and black box.
9:45 am
ashley: there are two black boxes and they picked up a signal from one of them. question is how do they get down to it. another boat is coming on the scene that contains robots that can go down 10,000 feet down. we know the ocean floor is deep. it appears they've honed in on one of the black boxes. stuart: thank you, ashley. the first baby with the zika virus has been born in the united states. the mother flew to america from honduras while she was pregnant. now, i'm not -- i don't want to detract from the horror for the mother liz: yeah. stuart: why was it that she flew to america heavily pregnant, apparently, to deliver in new jersey? what's the-- >> well, u.s. law allows it. it's up to the custom patrol officers to deny or accept entry of pregnant women and they also have to determine
9:46 am
whether they have sufficient medical insurance. many women fly to the u.s. and it's on ad hoc basis. it's up to border patrol or-- >> the airlines have a policy, too how late into pregnancy you can fly. stuart: i don't know which airline she flew in on liz: we don't know. stuart: but they have a policy. i think they normally reluctant to carry passengers who are more than six or is it seven months liz: not sure. in that area. stuart: it's a mystery, but it happened. all right, everyone. back to politics, bill cristal, the editor of the weekly standard, a well-known conservative magazine, revealed who he wants as a third party candidate. and david french the guy on the left of your screen. he's a conservative writer with the national review. mercedes is with us, i'm goes to pass judgment here and a marshen about. i think this is the failure of the never trump movement. i mean, this is ridiculous, you
9:47 am
say? >> i do believe that that's part of it. i also think that it's a third party candidacy that nobody wants. it's like they keep passing the baton to see who in the conservative movement will pick up the baton and run with it. with that being said, i mean, david french is a very honorable, you know, veteran. he served in our armed forces, he's a constitutional lawyer, he has the credentials, here is the deal. it's too late. it's unpractical, unrealistic for him to jump in this race and we know that you have to raise close to a billion dollars to even be an i believe to compete at the national level and quite frankly, if he wanted to run, he should have been running with the other 17 candidates back last year. stuart: that's a good point. i think the never trump movement is just about down and out. am i so wrong? >> i think they either have to decide to draft bill crystal 2016 or if they--
9:48 am
i think they need to realize that the voters have decided. whether you like donald trump or not, whether he was your first choice or your last choice, the voters have made a decision and the party has said, rines priebus says you have to unite. it's donald trump or hillary clinton. i can tell you right now, hillary clinton will assure three supreme court liberal justices which the conservative movement will never be able to recover from that. stuart: that's the argument. you introduce a third party candidate who would draw votes away interest donald trump, and you give the election to hillary clinton. i mean, is bill cristal not aware of the arguments? are the never trump people not aware of what's going on here? >> i think that the never trump people are well aware of the arguments, but for them it's about principle, about the moral crusade of conservativism. we're dealing here in an election, unfortunately, the conservatives at this point
9:49 am
were not able to get their candidate, like a ted cruz, or a marco rubio to win. the country is moving in a different direction in terms of economic populous message of donald trump has resonated with the frustrated voters maybe not thinking in terms of principles or social conservativism or even fiscal conservativism, but what they're looking at is a candidate who is able to deliver a message that they were able to be attracted to and that was a formula that worked for donald trump and that's why you see that the voters at the end, ended up choosing donald trump. stuart: i believe we're in full agreement. i think that's accurate. >> that's great.

stuart: doctors fear of flesh eating disease has been brought to europe by syrian migrants. doctor mark siegel is here. when i see a headline, flesh eating organism, i think i am being set up. that is a scare, sounds absolutely awful. i imagine somebody putting out that headline is a way of getting money for treatment. where am i going wrong? >> that headline so people put eyeballs on it. don't know about the money part but money follows eyeballs. here is the thing, just like zika there is a barrier called the sand fly. you can't get this unless the sand fly is around.
10:55 am
it is all over syria and the middle east so the refugees spreading at all over the middle east. and this was a huge worldwide promise, 12 million cases in the world of this causing severe scarring on the skin. it is treatable but hard to get a hold of that treatment. the united states most of those treatments, hard to treat and causes great scars. stuart: everybody says flesh eating organism, is it going to come here? you just said you can't get this condition unless you have been bitten by a sand fly but we don't have inspected sand flies in america and europe. >> exactly. it is all over brazil, it is not coming here. stuart: we have known about it for a long time.
10:56 am
only recently got this headline is syrian migrants -- >> it is an ancient problem that hasn't been gotten rid of. it is huge around the middle east and it is not coming here. stuart: i will repeat the question, does it kill? >> it can kill in one form, 200 to 400,000 cases. it can be if your immune system is compromised. stuart: is it not possible we will have sand flies in america infected with this flesh eating organism? that could happen? >> no. we have sand flies your but they were not end up infected. we would have to such a burden of infected people before it whatever spread to our sand fly. stuart: we feel better already. appreciate it. ashley: donald trump goes after the media, call them crooked, you will get stuart's take on that and the san bernardino shooter's family once a life insurance play out and they are
10:57 am
trying to stop it. possible criminal charges for the parents of that child who fell into a guerrilla enclosure. question is, are they liable? more varney three minutes away.

11:00 am
. stuart: 24 hours ago donald trump took on the media. many of you watched his performance on this program. what a performance it was. from the standpoint of everyday people, he won. hands down. to the elites, it was mortifying. the republican candidate walked all over them. and then a few hours later, trump did it again. on hand on it he called out katie kerrick. she is antigun. she cheated to make her opinion look superior. and everyday people look stupid. trump pounced. the best fortunately you can do is put do you happen a tape roared because they make
11:01 am
things up. that's what he said. they make things up and that's exactly what katie kerrick had done. hillary clinton doesn't take on the media. she passively responds to softball questions asked by her media supporters. bernie sanders has one answer to any and all questions. the billionaires on wall street. it's all their fault. and the president, he gives a news conference, and it feels like a college lecture. he takes ten minutes to answer a question and at the end of it you don't know exactly what he said. let's be clear. reporters are correct to and questions about trump's raising money for vets. how much? who got the money? when was it paid out? those are all legitimate questions. he doesn't come across that way with everyday people. to them, it sounded like nitpicking. the elites whining about a guy who had just raised millions for people just like them. if politics is perception,
11:02 am
trump's fight with the media was a slam dunk win for trump. well, that says my opinion. i believe believe trump won the battle with the media yesterday. we'll hear from brett bear about all of this in just a few minutes. here's what else is new. this hour a powerful nurses union threatening to disrupt the democrats convention next month. they want to make sure hillary clinton is not the nominee. this nurse's group loves bernie sanders. ford rolling out its brand-new 2017 super duty truck. jeff flock is out there giving it a test-drive as we speak. and you're watching him do it. but first, let's get a quick check of the big board. really coming back. we were down 120 points now we're down 27 points. some individual stocks are moving. nike, for example, got a downgrade, a dow stock.
11:03 am
ashley: so is oil. stuart: so that's the relationship. back to that. oil down, stocks down. ashley: , yes. stuart: we have amazon, i believe that is a new all-time high. 7 -- no, it hit 726 earlier. ashley: that's right. stuart: amazon is up there. don't forget twitter. that stock down 34% this year. barrel holding $15 a share as of now. down 1.5%. the business software deal going to tell you sales force buying demand wear. $2.8billion. very nice pop for demand wear. up 55%. we like to bring you the movers. lower sales, lower outlook from the parent company of anne tailor and dress barn. you know anne tailor and the rest of them down 7%. the automakers, they're out with their may sales this morning. overall sales were not good, and we've got red arrows for general motors, ford, and fiat
11:04 am
chrysler. united health care pulling out of the obamacare exchange. look at the stock chart. gone straight up since earlier this year when the company said it was scaling back its exposure to obamacare. ashley webster is here so is liz macdonald. liz, what's going on with united health care? liz: they lost about $475 million in the obamacare exchanges last year. and we've seen that with other health insurers pulling out. humanna in certain states and also blue cross pulling out as well. so what happens is we have many monopolies now and they're basically raising premises. ashley: well, those are the staying in. they're asking for significant rate increases starting next year. so you've got more people opting out, leaving fewer players in the game and they're wanting higher premiu p. stuart: did you say earlier on the show, liz, that the
11:05 am
average premium of all these insurers in the obamacare system will go up 17%? liz: that was only for new york state. united health was going to ask 17% average increase. some will be hit with 45%. other insurers are on that level too. so this is a fall out of obamacare. ashley: yeah. liz: this is what they didn't see coming i- it's just not sustainable for these insurance companies. they can't handle it. stuart: and they're out and the stocks are going. ashley: the losses are too bi b. stuart: great story. liz: right. stuart: let's get back to politics. i said in my hour my opinion donald trump had won in his contest with the media. he took on the media, i think he came out on top. certainly as far as ordinary everyday people are concerned. brett bear is with me. the host of special report, and he joins us now. brett workers' compensation welcome back to the show. good to see you, sir. >> hey, stew. how are you doing? . stuart: am i right or completely right? donald trump winning the battle with everyday people when he took on the media
11:06 am
yesterday. what do you say? >> by the way, that's how charles phrases things. am i right or am i absolutely certain? yeah, listen, i think -- you're probably right that he strikes a cord with everyday americans who are sick of, you know, the political correctness. they are -- the media is an easy target. and this particular instance, you know, he came after them because they were coming after him for these veterans checks. and the bottom line is he did raise 5.6 million total for vets groups. that's it. his style while his supporters are enthused by it. the question is how it plays with independents. in a republican primary it's a different electorate than the general election and how that plays across the board i think is yet to be seen. stuart: okay. i've got a headline from the wall street journal this morning.
11:07 am
an article written by doug shown, leading democrat and former clinton advisor. and as you can see the headline reads clinton might not be the nominee. i think that's the first time i've heard a leading democrat come out and flat out say it. there's trouble in the clinton camp. what say you, brett? >> well, i think the trump stems from the investigation. and as we get closer and closer to this e-mail decision by the fbi and then the justice department, i think there are more and more people looking at it saying, you know, this really could be an indictment. the convention here in washington, stew, was that it's just not going to happen, there's no way the obama administration was going to do that. there are some people coming to the other side now and if that happens, i think the democratic party would send up a flare and to doug shone's point have a biden warren ticket or something like that. i don't think sanders is positioned to get the
11:08 am
nomination. even if he -- and he could, win california. stuart: i don't think people are laughing at the idea of a biden warren ticket any longer. i mean it's within the realms of possibility, isn't it? >> it is. i mean, again, it's a little bit of a long shot, and it all depends on what happens with the fbi. but i just think that if you had a nominee who was facing an indictment, that's a pretty big negative as you head into a general election. stuart: i think you're putting it very mildly there, brett. a very mild guy. now, hillary clinton is said to make a speech on -- i think it's foreign policy. should make a speech in california tomorrow. she's expected to attack donald trump. can she win on foreign policy with very interesting record in foreign policy as secretary of state? >> yeah. i mean she doesn't have a great record to defend. and even her people had a hard time saying what was her biggest accomplishment as
11:09 am
secretary of state? but i will say that she's going to throw everything out and say you can't trust a donald trump with nuclear codes. and say that she's better positioned to handle a crisis. you look at the latest quinnipiac poll, stew, donald trump still leads in fighting terrorism, fighting isis, but handling a crisis still goes to hillary clinton. so it's a pretty even split. stuart: every time we talk to each other on the show. i say the same thing. have you ever seen anything like this before? >> never. stuart: you've got the best job in the world. providing over coverage of the most extraordinary election that i've -- i've been in america 40 years. never seen anything like this. >> it's amazing, and we're just heading into the heat of it with these conventions and the general election will be fascinating. stuart: yeah. report tonight 6:00 p.m. with that man right there. brett bear. thank you so much for joining us. appreciate it.
11:10 am
>> thanks, stuart,. stuart: back to the markets, please. down only 30 points. come back about 100 points. the price of oil has come back. and stocks have come back and that's where we are now. now, how about this? ford rolling out its 2017 super duty truck. flock is out there driving one around getting into it right now. you never know what's going to happen when flock gets behind the wheel when cameras are rolling. watch out, everybody. california larry elder, host of the national libertarian debate this weekend. now, why was he doing that? we'll ask because he's joining in a moment. >> didn't bankrupt the coal industry, it was regulations and president obama.

11:12 am
11:13 am
. stuart: in an active market we do like to pick out is to
11:14 am
accident that are really moving. everyone knows under armour, they've got jordan spieth along with steph curry. now, that stock is way down today. they're saying that the bankruptcy liquidation of sports authority is going to hurt the sales at under armour. down she goes four nearly 5%. but much better sales at michael cores. up 6%. the top performer in all of the 500 stocks in the s&p 500. and then we have the national libertarian debate held over the memorial day weekend. our guest was the moderator. larry elder. nationally radio host. all right. larry. i didn't think you were a trump guy, and i know you're not a democrat. are you a libertarian all of these years?
11:15 am
>> i've never belonged to the libertarian party because on economic issues style like freeman is fine but they sound like michael moore, which is be not. so i'm registered republican but small libertarian and also abc guy. anybody but clinton. trump is the last man standing. won it fair and square and trump is going to be the one i'm going to go for. stuart: now, i've seen some brief clips in that debate over the weekend. and they were impressive. there were sharp edge, said the kind of things i like to hear. i'm a small government kind of guy. who was the most -- can you make that judgment for us? who was the most impressive? are you allowed to say that? >> well, i think the one that is more likely to get the nomination when you put it that way is gary johnson. stuart: yeah. >> he has the highest name recognition. a former republican governor. his running mate william well and chose him to be the running mate. they're the ones that are going to be the standard
11:16 am
bearer and they're going to get 8% of the vote which is four times what they got last time and enough to make a difference in swing states. now, let me say this too. i think one of the reasons you were so impressed is because the moderator asked them very penetrating fil philosophical questions. stuart: moving swiftly along, larry. moving swiftly along. we've got a new quinnipiac poll and it shows gary johnson gets 5% of the vote. now, i've been reading closely into that poll. it seems to me that gary johnson is taking votes away more from hillary than he is from donald trump. that's a surprise to me. how about you? >> i read it the opposite way. he takes a lot from both sides. that's true. but it seems to be taking a little bit more from trump than hillary. and if that's the case, again, he could very well make a difference in some very close states. but during the debate, every one of the candidates to a person said that the
11:17 am
libertarian would pull equally from both sides. . stuart: but the problem is that a third party candidate is, in fact, a spoiler. and the argument will always be that that will hand the election to hillary clinton. what do you say to that? >> i agree. that is the first or second question that i asked. what do you say about the people who make the argument that as between the two parties, the republican party is a lesser of two evils. that's how most libertarians feel. and if you pull the lever for a libertarian, you're more likely going to get a hillary there. what do you say about that? and that's when i said they gave the answer we're going to pull equally from the democratic side and the republican side. i don't think so. i think they're going to hurt donald trump more than hillar h. stuart: i do think, however, that libertarians are having a much greater impact on the national scene than at any point in the last, say, generation. the points that they're making about big government not working preferring small government and individual liberty, that's very much the -- the sign of the time.
11:18 am
the political times i feel like. i can see where they're gaining ground. >> i couldn't agree with you more. part of it is because of the high negatives that both major candidates hillary and donald trump. but the other part of it is what you said. libertarianism is what the country needs but the country center left, that's not what the country wants. i wish the country did want to privatize social constitute. i wish they did want to get rid of the irs. that's why donald trump, in my opinion, has his finger on the pulse of where the electorate is. stuart: i'm glad you were at that debate because i want you to straighten them out, and i think you did. i really do. thanks for being with us. appreciate it. thank you, sir. and, by the way, at the top of next hour both members of the libertarian ticket, both are on it. gary johnson, bill well they'll join cavuto coast to coast. noon eastern top of the hour coming up. look at this video. more flooding from the river just southwest of houston, texas. cresting at a record 54 feet.
11:19 am
made some communities accessible only by boat. reports of the floodwaters bringing snakes, ants, debris into homes. and there's another one to three inches of rain coming. now, look at that. that is a large area under water. that -- you normally see that on a swamp. ashley: you would. stuart: in louisiana. liz: good point. ashley: southwest of houston. stuart: my heart goes out to people whose homes are flooded. especially if you've got water moccasins. liz: yeah, the poisonous water-bound snake. and also people in cars are being killed. being swept away. that's terrible. stuart: it really is. check that big board. still coming back 27 points down. that's what we've got. and, again, ford rolling out the 2017 super duty truck. jeff flock out there driving one around. we head out to michigan. but first, do you remember when flock did this? >> trying not to hit those
11:20 am
walls. i got that one pretty decent. now, if i could just steer this into a straight narrow line, and i do. and i've got a world record run. yes. my name is fred and i carve heads out of cheese. it's not easy. i was once working on a bust of shaquille o'neill in swiss. i haven't worked in swiss since. everyone called me crazy. things really took off when i got my domain name headsofcheese.com from godaddy and now they're selling like hot cakes...made of cheese. got a crazy idea you think you can turn into a success? we know you can and we've got a domain for you. go you. godaddy.

. stuart: i'll continue nonetheless. look at toyota, please. we just got their may sales numbers down 9%. just like the rest of the automakers. ashley: except for chrysler. stuart: up 1%. ashley: , yes. stuart: toyota taking it down just 13 cents. no big deal. overall ford sales down 6%. the stock is down 3.5% and we have our own jeff flock in dearborn, michigan as ford rolls out one of his newest models no feckless year. it is a big truck. jeff, you have to tell me what can this big truck do? >> i've got the keys to your future right here, mr. varney. these are, by the way, behind the scenes look at dealers being briefed on the new super duty. this is the new super duty right here. an f450. now, this is the reason you're going to buy this. take a look at this.
11:25 am
i've got in my hand here. you don't like to put the gate down yourself? just pop a button. but how about this? mr. varney is a little bit older. he try to get up into the bed of this truck and says i can't get up. how do i do that? so what happens? i pop this out, i pull this up, i throw this there and next thing you know mr. varney is up in the bed of his truck like that. he can load his logs, his gold bouillon, whatever he's got. this is why he will buy the new super duty ford. stuart: that was very good. what do you think? ashley: yeah, excellent. stuart: announcing we're going to be coming to you throughout the day. we will not forget your insults to the aging mr. varney. but that's the f450. that is indeed a big truck. and i want it. liz: you want it now. stuart: we'll be back to jeff throughout the day. check the big board. we really have come back. beer down what? 24 points. that's it. price of oil is down a few cents. that's why the stock market
11:26 am
has come back. the family of the san bernardino shooter syed farook set the collect a quarter million dollars in a life insurance payment because of his death. well, the federal government is suing to stop that. now, what would the judge say about that? interrupting a legal contract no less. what's he got to say? we'll tell you. and a powerful nurses union threatening to interrupt the convention next month. they want to make sure hillary clinton is not the nominee. because those nurses love bernie. >> one up there who said health care should be a right of all people.

11:29 am
11:30 am
. stuart: we do like to pick out stocks that are moving. look at this. whole foods gets an upgrade from credit swiss which says it's going to $40 a share. the stock gains 5% at 33. cracker barrel. another record high there earlier. it was 167. okay. it has backed off a little. but still up 8%. that is cracker barrel. we all know that. an update on the hillary clinton e-mail scandal. lawyers for hillary's aide cheryl mills blocked questions about specialist brian.
11:31 am
the guy who set up hillary's private server. judge napolitano is here. now, what's the significance? it always goes back to brian. >> well, he is potentially mrs. clinton's nightmare because even given formal imimmunity or process of nonprosecution as long as he doesn't commit perjury. what does that mean? that means he is briefing the fbi on what mrs. clinton said to him and what he said to her or what he did for her and why it was done with respect to the e-mail server. stuart: so he is hillary's vulnerability. >> yeah. now, remember he has been charged. tell the truth, help us with hillary, the charges against you are reduced or they go away. that is standard operating procedure for the justice department. stuart: is that why cheryl mills, her attorneys said you're not answering any questions about this guy. >> yes. because that is the most sensitive area for
11:32 am
mrs. clinton. it is also theoreticallyiveness for ms. mills and the other aids because one of the allegations, one of the charges, the indictments could be this. a conspiracy to obstruct the ordinary functions of the government by making it impossible for mrs. clinton's e-mails to be subject to a freedom of information act search. and ms. mills -- either inadvertently or thoughtlessly revealed yesterday that it was impossible to find mrs. clinton's e-mails on a freedom of information act search. even though mrs. clinton has told many press conferences my e-mails were there, and they could find them. stuart: so am i right in saying that she didn't actually use a regular smartphone. she always used a blackberry. >> it's worse than that, stuart. she used a blackberry. she did not use a desktop. she did not use a laptop. she did not use a tablet. she used a blackberry. blackberries don't work on the 7th floor of the state
11:33 am
department in the secretaries office. stuart: how do you know that? >> ms. mills revealed it. stuart: really? >> yes. i have for you a 300 page transcript of this deposition which was taken yesterday. and many in there one such as this. so for the secretary of state as diplomats reporting for her across the globe to communicate with her during the day, during the week, had to alive her office with guards, go down into the public hallway on the sixth floor and respond that way or go to a 19th century version of responding by having it read to her and reading back the e-mail she would send if she had e-mail. this shows her primordial fear of the freedom of information act of having her thoughts and her words exposed to the public, which is what the statute provides. stuart: so it's getting worse and worse and worse. more detail after detail. >> i don't think it's new to the fbi. but, yes, it is getting worse and critique much of what she's been saying.
11:34 am
when she does say. she sn't had a press conference at all this year. stuart: what do you say about the san bernardino killer's estate who's supposed to get $250,000 as a life insurance payout. the feds are supposed to stop it. i don't see anything wrong with stopping the family for a terrorist's death. >> you want to punish the family members for what they did? would that be some new legal theory that we can punish the parents of the bad people? . stuart: no, i'll tell you the theory. you don't get a life insurance payout if you commit suicide because obviously getting the money for it. now, wait a minute. these terrorists, they went out. they knew they were going to die. therefore the life insurance contract is invalid. >> but that's not why you wanted it invalidated. you wanted it invalidated because you don't like the dead relatives.
11:35 am
it's called the contract law of the constitution which prohibits the states from interfering with contract. between the insurance company and the beneficiary. stuart: if the contract was written under false pretenses, and it would have been because they knew they were going to go out and get killed, then the contract is invalid. >> maybe you have a point. stuart: maybe i have a point? oh. liz: maybe? >> when the insurance policy was purchased. i do not believe that it was purchased at the time they were contemplating this event, mr. varney. rule varney. stuart: that was gretchen carlson making an appearance there. judge totally wrong again. but it was fun. thank you very much. >> i'm outnumbered and filling in for charles payne at 6:00 this afternoon. stuart: 6:00 tonight? more from the judge on the fox business network if you're not careful.
11:36 am
>> yes. all the best. stuart: how about this? the national nurse's united. that's the name of the group. a powerful nurses union actually. they're threatening unrest at the national convention in july. joining me former greenwich oncarlson, the host on the fox news channel. this shows one enormous divide among republicans. >> yeah. because it's not one or two nurses. it's 185,000 strong. stuart: whoa. really? >> and apparently at least the head people of the union are fully behind bernie sanders. so on the desk at the union headquarters sits a gag gift called the hillary clinton voodoo kit complete with pushpins and a miniature doll. stick it to her before she sticks it to you it reads. they don't like hillary clinton. they're going for a fight at the convention in july. they want a single pair health care plan which bernie sanders is promoting. i think hillary clinton also
11:37 am
promoting at one time. but they are behind bernie sanders. last time we were here we talked about debbie schultz the head of the d nc put together at the committee at the convention. >> right. >> and she gave five seats to bernie sanders, didn't have to but did and gave six to hillary clinton. apparently one of the leaders of this union want to have one of those seats to represent mr. sanders and was not allowed to. so that has made them even more angry now. a big divide. who would ever thought we would talk about the divide at the democratic convention. stuart: but it's quite possible that the democrat convention will accept as policy for up coming election a single pair health care system. like -- that's not out of the question. >> well, that is what sanders is proposing. stuart: yes enormous influence. >> he's not going to give up his fight. so i think he's going to try to push for some of his policies to be on the democratic platform, yes. stuart: extraordinary. we've got a new quinnipiac poll.
11:38 am
it has women picking hillary by 24 points. is that a huge problem for trump campaign, is it not? >> yes. but look at that. trump has men over clinton 51/35. so it's basically the same. here's how every election is decided and that's independence. right now trump is ahead of clinton 40-37. stuart: both genders; right? >> yeah. but independents decide all elections. here's my favorite one, though. who would you rather have a backyard barbecue with? not kidding that was a question. that was a question. trump 47. hillary clinton 49. okay? but she -- she does better on immigration. that was surprising to me. stuart: yeah. >> she does better on who would do a better job getting things done in washington. see, i thought a lot of people would go for trump on that because he would be the outsider sort of mixing things up. he does better of course on making jobs and getting people employed. and i will say this right now.
11:39 am
