donald trump called for a special prosecutor into the appearance of play. >> the amount is done, the favor is done and the significant number of times it was done require an expedited investigation by a special prosecutor immediately, immediately. sandra: let's bring republican strategist and jessica a democratic strategist. all right. first up, if these 15,000 emails just -- i feel like i'm going to go to you on this. >> that's shocking. [laughter] sandra: if they were so boring as she joked on kimmel, why didn't she put them out to begin with? >> the entire private server from the star trying to pin on collin powell, i think it's a
6:05 am
huge mistake, not releasing all of them and if there's nothing there and i believe that there is no there here. -- sandra: come on. >> what do you think it says? dagen: emails that were released by judicial watch. by the way, why did judicial watch -- there's an exchanging, one particular exchanging in there that's different between doug at the foundation about the crown prince who by the way, $32 million scholarship done through the global initiative. first time interaction with donor and mrs. clinton. there's a real connection that's
6:06 am
being made and it raises the issue of why the foundation exists and was it paid to play. >> we know why the foundation existed. >> i have a list. you mentioned the crown prince and $32 million, daniel abram, donations from 25,000, 75,000. here is a point that matters, in a response to a court order, in a response of court order for judicial watch, clinton declared under penalty of perjury, and i quote, that she had directed all my emails on clinton in my custody that were federal records be provided to the department of state and information and belief this has been done. now, if we impeached her husband for perjury lying under oath and this is to a federal judge and we -- by the
6:07 am
way, the no there there, the sap emails, 113 emails didn't exist that deleted that contained classified markings -- let's be clear about something. she's the highest classification authority in the state department. sandra: i want to get your reaction to this. a fox news investigation cheryl mills received 150 calls over a two-year period from 2010 to 2012. does this -- what are the optics of that? >> from illinois, when -- we can argue and debate. [laughter] >> i'm going to use it again when i debate you, jessica. this situation here, we are going to be honest about it, it's not a matter of us
6:08 am
debating, there was three fbi offices in agreement to actually investigate the clinton foundation and you see the obama administration prevented that. that in and of itself is a problem and i think donald trump is right when he says we need a special prosecutor because we see even when we it came over 60 companies donated money that had businesses before the state department, northeast politicians would say that -- not illegal or unethical. >> it is a -- >> because i worked under the executive branch code of ethics, i went back to the book that i was given to read and it is a violation to do that. sandra: hillary clinton took it was funny. she took a break from fundraising to appear in jimmy kimmel live and this is what she said about her emails. >> jimmy, my emails are so boring. i'm embarrassed about that. [laughter]
6:09 am
>> so we have released i don't know 30,000 plus, so what's a few more. sandra: she has a trust deficit with the american people. >> that's really what we are doing. it's an election, on november 18 they will go out an vote. today 60% of americans don't care about emails and 80% of democrats and independents. republicans they care. i hear donald trump talk about it. the benghazi investigation -- sandra: go back to congressman chaffetz. >> republicans spend a lot of time digging for things -- listen, i understand but i'm saying everyone is putting in the context of the election. donald trump is making an election issue and i'm telling you that the american public is not going to vote against hillary clinton when it's donald trump because of it.
6:10 am
>> that's a big deal. dagen: when you start digging in the foundation and more and more information is coming out about what was going on and how that foundation was used to basically to empower the clintons in terms of -- sandra: donald trump won't release taxes and democrats have it he has something horrible. the state department issued an updated travel warning for iran even after the nuclear deal and 400 million-dollar payment to release prisoners. seems like we are on the losing end with our deal with iran. it's unbelievable. >> we are back to the point when it comes to how the democrats and the left operate when they're in power, they get to do whatever they want and drive moral equivalency like the american people don't care. no one has identified that a lot of american people care about these issues. we pay $400 million, we have
6:11 am
sailers who frankly -- i don't know why they were there but i can tell you one thing their actions were a disgrace the way they acted when they gave up passwords. this administration has paid money to iran to further their goals. we are $1.3 billion on top of that, how it was transferred, we have no relationship with them but we give them money which is equivalent of handing back, not ransom money but to fund terrorism. >> completely agree with your assessment. it's even more problematic to say it was it wasn't for a ransom payment. >> the timeline matters here in that they had to wait to release the prisoners on the people that were being returned, the others held in iran. waited for the release until the other plane hit the tarmac.
6:12 am

6:18 am
doesn't work everywhere else but takes input from a the bluetooth devices, the question is can they break into that. sandra: great question to ask. amazon shares are up slightly in the premarket. coming up, are investors waiting on thesideline ahead from janet yellen potential rate hike, what you need to know and what's happening, straight ahead. ryan lochte left in the deep end as he loses major endorsement deals. all from the fallout of his tall tale. next what powers the digital world. communication.

sandra: looking at futures this morning. looks like we might see a higher opening. s&p futures up 5, nasdaq up 14 points. investors waiting on data, economic data this morning. we've got earnings coming out. a speech from janet yellen later this week. on the earnings front we heard from toll brothers, better than expected revenues. sign of steady growth in the house market. michael, as i catch my brace eat, what's your take? micheal: they are lowering margins so we will see if that's a lot of noise or excuse for something else is going on. we are taking housing strength for granted here. you look at some of the other economic data and i want to
6:23 am
focus on nonperformed productivity and say this is a problem because that become weak, that's going to affect profitability, wages are going to have trouble rising, that means that disposable income is going to have trouble, retail sales and housing can get hit, maybe adjustment in the job's market where we are seeing -- maybe we are hitting a wall here which is a structural issue and not economic issue and housing suddenly hits a crash, we are taking it for granted, maybe it's in for dagen: i want to know what you think about the front page story of the wall street journal that the extremely low level of volatility suggest to some that a market storm is brewing out there and i will quote this, in the past 30 days we've had the least amount of volatility of any 30-day period in more than two decades. so it's the lowest level of volatility in the last 20 years
6:24 am
but what does it mean, is that the federal reserve pulls the trigger and they aren't expecting it? is it something else. >> over weekend we heard from stanley fisher and he pointed out how the economy is looking good, how we are almost to our goals which implies we are ready to raise rates. the issue here is that everyone else is listening to janet yellen and after happened early this year, forget lockhart, janet is going to sound note of caution, last year she did that and she was forced, painted into a corner and had to have rates in december and talking to fed insiders, she's becoming a lot more passive agreses sieve the term i've heard used. sandra: you will enjoy this
6:25 am
question. i had this conversation with stuart varney on varney&company. has the market priced in the next president? micheal: i feel like the market -- they like hillary because hillary is the devil they know as oppose to the devi lyrics they don't know. dagen: i heart that from everyone. micheal: look at me i'm like bernie, a socialist. no you're not. come on. sandra: if donald trump catches stride and there's movement there and he's able to narrow the margins between him and hillary clinton you would see movement in the market? micheal: how does he catch his stride, does he get more
6:26 am
populist, protectionist? dagen: does he catch a strike if the stock market tanks? micheal: actually, yes. dagen: stable obama and president obama's policies, if it tanks does that hurt hillary? micheal: that's not going higher any time soon. >> tieing a little bit together, we are talking about the market but the average american doesn't vote on the market. literally 24 hours ago give or take. when you look at earnings, when you look at income, wages that don't rise, those are people who need to have an earnings track to go to a mortgage that affects mortgage, you can't demonstrate
6:27 am
a track of years of rising, consistent rising to qualify. dagen: people did vote on the market in 2008 because the bottom fell off. >> how did those people survive this? micheal: housing market and structural issues, regulators have put the clamp down on the banks and lenders and potential home owners and really stifled that. it's going to be a problem, you're right, david. sandra: one u.s. company left stranded as companies ditching obamacare. we will tell you how they wound up on the other side of the border. that's next.

6:33 am
in europe we are seeing gains across the board as well as we look at international markets, the ftse and london up half a percent and the dax in germany leading up almost 1%. in asia markets were little changed and you're looking at some mixed market action there with the kospi leading four tenths of a percent. here we go. getting extra crispy, kfc is giving away sunscreen in its latest marketing pitch. you need to know the details of this just ahead. those looking to get cover through obamacare may be on their way to slim pickings. next year it could jump to as much as 17%, nine states will potentially have areas that only offer one carrier with plans through the affordable care act and joining us now director of healthcare policies studies at the cato institute, michael, how does this affect obamacare moving forward?
6:34 am
>> well, the main problem is how obamacare is affecting the sick, everyone seems concerned about whether or not is viable but what's happening here is obamacare is literally punishing the insurance companies that provide company that's attract i have to the sick, that's why they are driven out of the marketplace, the ones that remain are unattractive to the sick and even in arizona, there's going to be in obamacare insurers, you can't be discriminated against under obamacare but even if the exchanges are viable, obamacare still discriminates people against preexisting conditions. sandra: i have david webb onset, where is all this going, david? david: when you talk about the net effect of obamacare if it's gone from the county it's not
6:35 am
delivering what it claims. once again the president has told the american people something that didn't come through. read that any way you want but the defined idea here by the left and the obama progress individualism -- progressivism and you can't maintain it and the taxpayer, we can't have -- we can't have more people taking out of the system using government run health care than paying into it and have it survived. it's much like social security or any other entitlement. dagen: it's exactly like medicare michael and that's going broke in 12 years and we haven't fixed that. >> and the president's solution here is to throw more good money after bad. he promised that never again would we see premium increases like the 39% increase in california that happened around 2010 but we are seeing that sort of thing under obamacare and his
6:36 am
solution provide public option that they can subsidize the heck out of so they can just pay those rises costs under obamacare by pushing the cost under taxpayers. we were getting getting that innovation before obamacare, obamacare destroyed it. micheal: it's michael block, michael. let's say obamacare is here to stay. >> i would never assume such a thing. micheal: i'm making that assumption because here is my question, what can the government do, what can regulators do to help incentivize private carriers to come back and provide more choice s there a middle grounds here in. >> there's really nothing that can be done to make health insurance more secure for the sick as long as obamacare is still under the books.
6:37 am
in the meantime patients are going to suffer as a result of this. dagen: one idea from the insurance companies is you increased the penalty for the healthy to buy the insurance, that's the essential problem is they're not getting enough young and healthy people under these insurance contracts, that they're being forced to ensure people who are extremely sick and costly to ensure, that's not an option, that's not something that they're going to do, enforce the law and make people buy the insurance? >> the insurance company lobbyist always give more money to insurance companies. that's what the idea of increasing the individual mandate penalties would do. either you pay more money to the insurance companies or you pay more money to the government so they can give to insurance companies, that's just throwing good money after that. we should make the insurance companies compete for the money that they get from consumers, not go to washington to get more of pit.
6:38 am
>> what we are talking about is predictable failure as i see it. everything that dagen brought up is shifting the dollars around into failure. but the obamacare plan could never account for the market decisions made by insurance companies made by the healthcare delivery system so therefore it was never going to be design today work effectively and you said it, it's to push people towards the single payer, it's predictable failure. we saw it with the national institute of health in great britain and we have seen in sweden where they privatize today get away from it and yet somehow they think it's going to make it work here. it's economically unsustainable over time. >> i think that's correct and the people -- we need to keep our eye on the ball here. people who are suffering under obamacare are the people who develop preexisting conditions, who could have had secure access to health care through the
6:39 am
guarantied renewable plan that is were available on the market before obamacare, through new innovation that is were being developed as congress are debating and passing obamacare and obamacare destroyed and the only we we can make it more secure is ensure who control the $3 trillion. sandra: let me take this finally to the election at hand and we have heard president -- sorry, donald trump more than willing to share his opinion on all of this and he says he's going repeal it, replace it and get something great. what do you make of the conversation on the campaign trail about what to do? >> well, you know donald trump says he wants to repeal obamacare and i think that's the right approach both he and hillary clinton have a credibility problem. that was reflected in a recent poll that majority of the public -- majority of the public believed that either donald trump nor hillary clinton are going to make health care better.
6:40 am
i think that's a huge vote of no confidence on both candidates on health care. dagen: nobody wants to fix medicare. neither hillary clinton nor donald trump talk about tackling entitlement, period. sandra: michael, thank you for joining us. good to have you. >> thanks for having you. sandra: sc fc allows you to tan without burn to go a crisp. yes, we just said that. family vacations could be causing risks. summer vacations maybe causing people to get away from their spouses altogether. that's kind of sad. depressing. i don't want to live with

7:03 am
this you will like, a massive tax cut for working americans and 15% tax rate for small businesses. we are going to eliminate regulations that kill american jobs. we are going to repeal and replace obamacare saving another 2 million jobs over the next decade alone. sandra: all right. on the other side of the aisle hillary clinton releasing a plan to jump-start small businesses and promote job creation. her proposals aim at making tax filing simpler and helping employers provide health insurance. who is the better candidate for the economy? let's bring forbes media chairman and former republican presidential candidate steve forbes. let me start with that simple question. who is the better candidate for the u.s. economy? >> right now obviously donald trump. she wants to raise taxes, he wants to cut taxes, he wants to reduce regulation, she wants to increase regulation. everything for her is
7:04 am
government. government does not create resources. they figure as donald trump would put it crooked hillary is not telling the truth that she'll be more like bill clinton. i don't think there's an inner bill in hillary clinton. she's far left. she gave us hillary care back in 1994. she wanted nationalized health care back in 1994, she is more hard left. wall street will be in for a very unpleasant surprised. they are going to get a hard lefty. sandra: interesting. as far as the markets are concerned right now, have they been pricing in a victory for either candidate? >> no, i don't think you're going to see that happening when the markets can get a feel of who might actually win this. right now she's in deep trouble and on friday he did it when he had a great run and fires david -- paul manafort on the day he's
7:05 am
getting great story from louisiana. he has to have -- we all know it, he has to have more discipline. stop stepping on your own story and when she's in a fall, let her fall. dagen: do you think it's a mistake -- >> it's all about timing. if he had done it over the weekend, when the story wasn't going to get underway of her own troubles. she's alienated colin powell. that takes work. he goes to louisiana, he lets manafort. it's about timing. not about the move but about timing. micheal: steve, this nab survey show it is business economist are favoring hillary here. she's not going to shift to the center here, how does donald
7:06 am
trump win that crowd back, what's the credible plan here? you said cutting taxes, how do you get a moral hazard issue with that? how does that go to work and win over the economist and the american people? >> you don't have a good economy unless you start to reduce the burden on the economy, the tax code gets more and more horrific, so you have to reduce rates, simplify a little bit. i wish he had gone to flat tax. in regulations it's killing businesses. so when you have the epa after you, you have healthcare costs going up, you're getting strangled. every government agent, barack obama is turning internet into a deadweight utility. she should give special speech in silicon valley saying they are trying to kill the internet and i want to liberate it. dagen: they answer to the
7:07 am
government first and foremost. so if you're mad about getting the mortgage, blame the administration and blame the next one if hillary clinton gets elected. >> when you turn industry to utility and higher education which is becoming utility, you don't have to do a regulation, you can just send a letter of suggestions and they know that's an offer you can't refuse. micheal: it sounds like the tax cut part is out there as part of economic plan, it sounds like what you're saying mr. trump needs to focus on deregulation, freedom, is that -- >> hammer home the tax issue. every speech, i want to cut them, she wants to raise them and list some crazy taxes. she's now for soda tax. dagen: there's a six-year holding period. you want to talk about complicating a situation particularly for anyone who owns stock, those rates go back to jimmy carter era level. >> exactly. when he goes to silicon valley, say how many of you in venture
7:08 am
capital can survive with a 45% capital gain's tax rate? hammer those issues. the one issue he will reassure is not blow up the world trading system. he should say the tools are at hand, i have the tools to deal with abuses instead of implying that he's going to have a trade war and hit obama for not enforcing trade agreements. david: going back to the small business, the growth, how does he get a real progrowth message out to the people who are trying to build businesses, grow businesses, trying to survive because there the majority of the people that are going to vote out there? >> yes, that's where visuals count. there's a wonderful -- you can find it on youtube of a woman who owns a franchise in seattle had to lay somebody off and now she may go out of business because she can't survive the 15-dollar minimum wage, she's a minority. go to people like that and say, these things are killing us.

[laughter] david: take it. i know it's late at night for you. sandra: i want to get to the news of the iran travel warning, though. dagen, david, you have it on your phone, you've been reading it. it's pretty unbelievable considering this is all coming down after the iran deal and ransom payment, 400 million-dollar cash payment, your take on this. david: first of all, the warning has been issued before. this comes from smart traveler which i recommend the federal government. i did a panel on national security and global security this weekend in miami and in that panel we had an expert on
7:17 am
none combating soldiers overseas, what happens if you're taken, how do you get help. iran has been obvious for years, you don't go there, what you do by existences as a nonmuslim or even a dual citizen as the minister, makes you a target for a government that doesn't abide by our rules. people have to make smarter choices, don't go to countries where you become a political tool. dagen: here is the issue 400 million-dollar ransom payment clearly for these prisoners, we don't pay ransom because it encourages bad actors to take more hostages which iran has done with three individual americans. so now the u.s. government is saying, don't go to iran, you might get taken prisoner or captive or hostage because we just paid a ransom payment to a state sponsor of terrorism. that's the hideousness of this. david: we've actually done the biggest harm of putting a price on an american head.

sandra: pharmaceutical making headline for the skyrocketing price of epipen protect, more than 400% since acquisition of the device in 2007. it's a life-saving emergency drug and being sold -- it was sold for $57 back in '07. that same device now cost consumers more than 500 and $600 in some cases. parents are outraged including jeffrey, parent of user. >> it's outrageous. with this drug there's been no technological advancement, there's been no advancement in any area -- >> they haven't had to invest.
7:23 am
>> there's no justification. i would be the first person to say that it's exertive advantage exists but i believe that this is pure greed. sandra: joining me now with this is pain medicine dr. devy, what do we need to know about this because it's very scary for parents who won't be able to afford that, the kids need it? >> sure. you have a deadly condition, a drug that's safe and effective. the ideal situation where you can save someone's life but the parents have to fork over so much money to ensure that their child is going to be okay. adults too. anybody can have fatal allergic reaction. the issue is that a lot of people don't know how to use the generic version, it's slightly different in terms of how the device works. your worry is what if the people
7:24 am
around you don't know how to use it. you don't want gamble where your life is in danger and the people around can't do it. if you're in the hospital doctors can inject you with a needle. there are a couple of things to be careful about. you can only inject in the fat and not the blood vessel. sandra: they've got a monopoly on this product. do you see anything wrong with the way they're handling that? >> do i. it's not like they are spending more money on device or drug, the drug itself is probably less than a dollar. the device is fair to say they have a great product but it's not that they developed nit a vacuum, other patients, the people have helped develop the device in terms of medical trials and volunteers.
7:25 am
sandra: the device holds a dollar of the actual medicine and charging $600? dagen: your average patient would have insurance coverage, they wouldn't pay $600, they would pay some where below that amount of money, right? the numbers i saw it might be $400 which is still a lot of money, but nevertheless -- this is not something to point out, it's not something that you have to take daily, it's to have in case of an emergency. it's not a recurring cost potentially if you're careful. >> well, it is a recurring cost because the device only lasts a year. you have to rechaur it every year and it's filled in a two-pack. [inaudible] >> you have to have it at home and at school. >> if you have insurance coverage it wouldn't be $600. >> it depends. wholesale versus retail is
7:26 am
different prices. with certain insurances you might have coverage. what happens, let's say you're generally healthy and your kids are healthy, this is a practical thing you might buy a high deductible insurance plan because otherwise you are doing pretty well, you might see higher costs than if you were very sick. sandra: the company has issued a statement to fox business, with changes in the insurance landscape increasing number of people and families are enrolled in high deductible health plans and deductible amounts continue to rise, this shift has presented new challenges for consumers and they are baring more of the costs. okay. so they just kind of spelled it out there for us. >> that's true. still the price hike like you mentioned from 57 to above 400 or something in that range, that's a huge change which is actually, you know, not necessarily based on developing -- it's their cost. sandra: is this going to encourage more exerts or to come
7:27 am
in. >> they had competitor which voluntarily recalled its product. hopefully other exerts competitors will jump in. sandra: why are there so allergies now? >> there are a lot of factors that affects people's immune system, we are seeing autoimmune disease, it's not totally clear why that's happening. >> that's a study worth doing. [laughter] >> when i went to high school we didn't have kids with peanut allergies. sandra: no, you probably did. david: nobody died in my high school because they ate peanuts. >> the best solution is to figure out the cause and treat that and not necessarily the medication. [laughter] sandra: very scary thing for the

7:41 am
the administration, that raises questions whether or not bribes are involved whether at least there maybe a violation of the federal gratuity statute there would have to be linkage between gifts and decision making power of the government if that would satisfy result of of investigation there may well have been a crime collected. >> in quick form has clock reason i out. >> there is not much time left as you can tell donald trump came for quote/unquote expedited investigation it would have to be expedited we don't have much time left. >> thanks for being here good to have you still to come one muslim group has a few things to say to isis, with the help of this giant billboard behind the bench that has taken the internet by storm! , plus, some are having a blast indiaa state troopers haveing fun with golf cart karaoke more on this hilarious greet tribute coming up ♪ don't you want me baby, don't

8:21 am
like being responded to so i think that is the bottom line. despite potential to theo ops from candidates presidents what people mainly care about is just the bottom line, the bottom line is how is the government going to help them get through what clearly is a pretty major disaster. >> thank you so difficult to see joining us former louisiana senator sr., policy he advisor mary landrieu joins us how are people of your home state doing this morning? >> well it is tough as you can see from the excellent report that jeff did hit the nail on the head that is exactly what people want to hear what federal government can do state and local governments can do they recognize they have got to do for themselves as well, of course, nonprofits churches charities will step up but a real partnership, between the individuals, community and the government to get this fixed and done. and to get people back in

8:23 am
week, i know because i was there for part of it. and so you don't want to have a presidential visit for sure in the middle of water rising, and rescue operations so i think governor edwards was right, to reach out ask the president to come, this is a good time with the water going down you can access a lot of areas, i thank donald trump for coming and anything that can bring you know, attention to our state. but you need to do more than come he made a contribution wonderful, and most importantly, people want to hear from him from the president, and from secretary clinton what they can do to make the situation even better i left a much best fema than one we inherit forced katrina part might have legacy building a better fema i think that accomplished that with a lot of help. but, still, it is not enough a lot of people don't have insurance. >> yeah -- flooded -- >> huge issue. >> i think the actually count. sandra: flood zone.

want by stereo typing trump supporters. >> shocker, trump supporters, they're getting targeted. why? >> i think it's extraordinary. it's one thing to attack a candidate when you run for president, you're fair game, a lot of unfair attacks, but so many of the attacks on donald trump has been on his supporters. sandra: why? >> well, they're dismissed as uneducated because they're disproport haven't gone to college, white trash, incredible what they're being called. sandra: why is that happening? >> well, people dislike trump, but they need to sort of feel they're superior to the trump voters. donald trump has his share of obnoxious fans and i've heard from them, but i've heard from people that are college educated and reasonable. and you never hear. sandra: our historian. can you compare this to recent elections where supporters of a
8:34 am
nominee were targeted like this? >> not really. you really can't. i'll use an example for myself when i have to go into a bernie rally, a hillary rally, a leftist, fox has to at times send security with me. i've never had to go to a trump rally or a romney rally or a tea party rally with armed security and when we head to minneapolis, trump supporters are spit on and objects are thrown at them and the media ignores it, we've got to face the reality this is about the leftist in america, the democrats, the progressives, the hillary supporters, and the idea of breaking down the culture and painting anyone who objects to them as somebody to run an i way from. sandra: and maybe it would behoove all of us if we stopped and listen to what they want. >> the people i meet are concerned about their future, future for their children, whether they'll have economic opportunities for them, the same kind of students. you look at the phrase making america great again, that's dismissed by a lot of people in
8:35 am
the media and pundits and so forth, but it's very appealing to a lot of people who feel that they're losing their country in some ways and that the country their children will get won't be the same. sandra: your op-ed in the wall street journal you mentioned the word trumpkin and the fondness pour the media word once to describe and demean his supporters? >> i go further, it's not just the left. there are a lot of conservative critics sneering at trump voters, too. i think it's a big mistake in a democracy if you want to build support for your side, you generally don't insult the people you're trying to persuade to go your way. dagen: sorry, go ahead, mike. >> i made the argument part of what helped trump win the g.o.p. nomination, it galvanized voters who say, you're calling us stupid? this resonates with us. how does that carry over to a general election? >> we don't know. right now, donald trump is doing well among independents and clearly connecting with a
8:36 am
lot of people haven't traditionally voted republican, but he has a harder time getting republicans to support him than mrs. clinton has getting democrats to support her. and some people are, you know, put off by his manner and so forth, but again, and that's fair game, but again, i think to attack the people is extraordinary. sandra: and what impact that's having on the race as far as the accuracy of the polls. so we're asking you the question. what is the stereo typing of his supporters have on the accuracy of the polls that we're seeing that do reflect hillary clinton is in the lead. >> i don't know. the last time people said oh, the polls were wrong about romney and seem to have been right about romney, again, the polls suggest that donald trump's weakness is among traditional republican voters and i think we see that in our various interactions. dagen: i think that the american people are getting a taste of what it's like being a conservative living in new york city and ridiculed by the
8:37 am
liberal elites particularly in your major population centers. going further than new york city. your column today is about the clinton foundation and the e-mails that we found out from the judicial watch. do those connect with the voter? 'cause somebody was tweeting earlier and said i think that people in it country just have corruption fatigue. >> right. dagen: and they've stopped caring despite she used the office of secretary of state. >> and all of these things coming out, showing she didn't tell the truth almost about anything and the thing that sums up these e-mails is, an executive from the clinton foundation writing to people in the state department, hillary's top, asking for favors on behalf of people who have contributed gobs of money to the clinton foundation. it's a massive conflict of interest. and to go further, a lot of the stories say, a lot of the conditions and the people and
8:38 am
institutions paying bill clinton for his speeches were people that had business before the state department. and we act as though this is an accident or a byproduct, but when you put that out there, that connection, where do the clintons selling? they have an expresident, people don't just want to hear bill's opinions. they're selling the influence with possibly a future president and someone who was secretary of state. >> what did bill clinton possibly say now that is worth a quarter million dollars that he didn't say as president. there's a point by which i'm personally offended, i want to go back to the trump voter and the liberal elites and the media talking about the uneducated. first of all, i object to the term on this basis, you're educated at whatever level. if you're a tradesman or a corporate ceo, that's a level of education and i am so sick of being painted, i'm an educated man, i've met many educated trump supporters at all levels of life, and they're being painted as somehow the
8:39 am
uneducated masses in america and i think that people should be pissed off about that. >> also, democracy is based on the idea that everybody is the best judge of his own station, right? not some-- >> uneducated electrician doing electrical work in your house and see how that works out. >> and the recent gallup survey says even that, that trump does poll disproportionately, but even that is misleading. they earn average money and they're not this poor mop looking to get revenge. sandra: thank you for shedding light on a very important subject. thank you. still to come the $400 million ticket to nowhere. why u.s. citizens are told to stay away from iran despite the taxpayer dollars that went to the country. and plus, the best buy for investors may be best buy. we'll bring down the monster quarter for the retail giant. look at the stock up $6 right

aren't optimistic about their prospects. it may not be too late to change course. here to break is down for us, the personal development advicer larry wingate. the millennials are ill-prepared for retirement? >> i think that everybody is ill-prepared for retirement. let's not just pin that on the millennials. most old folks aren't ready for it either according to most studies. you know what bothers me, sandra, about this the most, it's not the money issue, it's the mindset issue. the study reveals at that so many people say they're not going to be prepared and they're coming up with excuses. there's too much waste, disparate between the genders. the job market is not going be good enough and for most of the people we're talking 40 years down the road, 40 years from now they've already decided they aren't going to have enough money to retire. sandra: what's the real problem? >> it's not the money, it's the mindset. sandra: what's the real problem? they're not working on it right now as far as they should be.
8:52 am
as far as the mindset 54% of them said they will never accumulate a million dollars during their lifetime. 73% of women felt this way so it's women more than men that are worried they won't be able to save enough to retire. >> i know, and again, they're coming up with all the excuses. how can you say 40 years from now you're not going to be ready to retire. sandra: because they're stretched, they say. >> i know it, they say they're stretched too thin. why not stretch yourself so thin? connell: that sounds easy enough. all right. >> no, it is about that simple. adjust your life style. don't spend more than you make. here is a clue, don't do that. >> larry, first of all, i'm a little disappointed. you toned down the shirt this morning so i'm heartbroken when i saw you were on the show, i'm looking for the shirt. but you've got a point here in short, the kind of instant gratification society, the

millennial generation, which is also the other side of long-term thinking, think for your future. so you think it's more about you need it right now and if i can't see it, i can't project 40 years from now? >> yeah, i believe that's part of it and there's also this whole, oh, to hell with it. i don't have enough money now and i'm not going to have enough money then and add the other part of that mindset issue, these people typically have this high deservability, somebody should take care of me. they should take care of my health care, they should take care of my education, and they darn sure ought to take care of my retirement. doesn't have any personal responsibility in there at all. sandra: hey, larry. dagen: in recovery, people talk about you've got to hit rock bottom. you've got to hit rock bottom before you can right yourself and get into a program, but if you hit rock bottom when it comes to saving and retirement, it's too late. >> yeah, it is too late, but again, we're 40 years away from most of those people. it's not too late.

they can start adjusting their life style right now. some of these people are employed, they can participate in company matching funds for retirement. you can get into the 401(k), they can stop spending so much money and start saving more. they still have time. they don't have to hit rock bottom. sandra: i know, they said 43% of americans spend more than they earn. that's going to be an issue, okay? and sam, chatting with him recently in chicago, millennials won't buy starter homes and they'll rent and spend themselves out of the market renting until they can buy a house and until they can buy the house, it's not a start-up home in a start-up neighborhood. they deserve more apparently they feel. so they're spending way more than they should be. >> yeah, we have too many waiting too late on that, to get into the housing market and they saw their parents get burned on that, where their house didn't turn out to be much of an investment and they saw their parents get about burned in the market as well.

they're waiting and some are hanging onto the money, but you can't really make any money by just sitting on it. so you're going to have to get into the market, whether it's the real estate market or the stock market. you're going to have to do something. but i would tell everybody to change their mindset and get your thinking right. the money is going to be there if your thinking is right. but to decide today how it's going to look for you 40 years from now. >> by the way, 40 years-- >> it's ridiculous. >> they're worried about saving million dollars for retirements 40 years from now? i don't know how far that's going to go. you might need more that. >> i'm betting you will, too. sandra: thank you for joining us. >> thank you. sandra: final thoughts from our all-star panel after the break. we'll be right back.
