on trading session in 20 seconds time. we have negative news on two technology companies. i say unusually, these are stocks which have gone through the roof recently. [opening bell rings] moments from now, you will see them, catch it. there you go. we're off, we're running. we have a mixed bag to open up today. no clear trend. we're down nine for the dow industrials. a lot of red on the dow 30 that you can see on the left-hand side of your screen. they're sorting it out. there is predominance of down side move. quick check on price of gold. there are reports of nuclear and certainly military tension between india and pakistan. no impact on the gold market whatsoever. check s&p 500 which is also down, .2%. about the same percentage loss as the dow. nasdaq series of record highs for the technology rich indicator. it is down this morning, .2%.
9:31 am
amazon and google. those two stocks are on a tear recently, reaching record highs. amazon still above 800 this morning. alphabet only down .2%. look at facebook. they exaggerated the time spent watching their video ads. that meant higher ad rates. the big ad buyers not happy about this. we'll have more details in a moment, we're show youing now, down 2.50. half a billion, repeat, half a billion accounts hacked. yahoo! said a state actor did it. that stock is down 1 1/2%. we have a downgrade for twitter. saying that its value to advertisers may be weakening. what the devil is going on? the thing is up 14%. we'll regroup. i want to know what is going on with twitter. anybody know? ashley: no. stuart: we'll find out, problem is you. we have ashley webster,
9:32 am
liz macdonald, scott shellady, and jack hough. they have been inflating time people spend watching video ads. jack hough knows a thing or two. how big is that. >> i wouldn't call it fraud, if you talk about advertising fraud on internet, there is estimated $8 billion happens every year. how much is that? all the money disney makes from advertising to give you an idea. the internet is absolutely rife with the problem. it is job security for television, rife. you don't have this problem. stuart: so you put a video ad on the internet and you don't get the response the advertisers promise you, is that it? they make their own standards. in tv they have industry standards. those are decided by third party. in the internet they kind of tell you how many people are watching. ashley: you have to believe them stuart: you don't know, that's right. looks like they have been exaggerating time spent watching those video ads.
9:33 am
we'll watch that stock for you. we got a look at yahoo!. half a billion accounts hacked, just as verizon was getting ready to buy it. what do you make of this? >> well, when -- stuart: first of all, i don't understand why people knew about this, yahoo! knew about this two years ago. >> yeah. stuart: we're only finding out about it now? >> i think that is the question. you could say yahoo! needed to understand details of it before they released information to consumers, two years timing is a big deal. the that is brandish -- branding issue. liz: we're not seeing indication of that. it is half their users. stuart: if it is material they have to declare it. liz: half their users may be hacked. stuart: marissa mayer has another problem.
9:34 am
preventing your pet getting overheated inside of your hot car, how does that work, liz? liz: what they're also doing, this is a bigger story. trying to avoid the autopilot problem in their cars. what they're going to have is beefed up signals to the driver ifheir hands are removed. they will actually disable the car if you are basically ignoring warning signs in the car. this to avoid the bad publicity from the crashes, perceives crashed from autopilot. stuart: the other one from tesla, they're suing the state of michigan. they want to sell cars to consumers directly without going through dealership, is that right? ashley: they don't believe in dealerships. they sell directly through company-owned stars. they made application to michigan. they said no you can't do that, we need to protect the conassume through the dealership model. >> which consume remembers protected by car dealers? ashley: exactly. stuart: protectionism.
9:35 am
scott shellady you haven't made a appearance. fireworks from you. you want to come into the merck fan argument. i'm firmly on tesla's said on a this one. are you? >> absolutely right. i'm on tesla's side. it is michigan. where they make cars. i totally understand why tesla would be upset. yeah, i agree. i don't know why i shouldn't be surprised at all. stuart: surprises me is that tesla, despite rather negative publicity is holding at $200 a share, jack hough. >> negative publicity from the autopilot accident, look, here is what is going to happen. there will be people who die when cars start driving themselves. the bar is 1 1/2 million people a year who die from preventable accident. people are too dumb to drive cars. the future is driverless automobiles. stuart: what you say to our viewers. >> not them. the other guy. you get tired, you get distracted. in the future people will not drive cars because machines are
9:36 am
simply bert at it. ashley: does not necessarily reflect the views of -- [laughter]. liz: boilerplate. stuart: where are we now? we're down about 22 points. that what we've got. 18370. price of oil, $46 per barrel, fractional a change. not having impact on market. wells fargo mr. stumpf resigned from federal reserve advisory panel. largely symbolic move. could be worse to come for mr. stumpf. higher sales for finish line. >> >> marriott buys starwood. become the world's largest hotel chain basically. a million rooms in 110 countries. nicole, give me names of all hotel chains coming together under marriott's umbrella. >> this becomes the biggest in the whole wide world. look at names in particular. marriott brands include ritz-carlton, courtyard and
9:37 am
residence inn. we have graphic with some. names you recognize here. starwood has w hotels, westin, sheraton and st. regis. the two get together. marriott completes the $13 billion buyout of starwood. beats out company from china order to get this done. the loyalty programs will be really big deal. it will be a complex integration of these two. for right now they're keeping it separate. if you're a starwood loyalty program you have a deal with american express, delta, uber. if you're a marriott, you have the deals with chase and also united. but they are going to work to try to integrate the loyalty programs in time. stuart: finally ritz-carlton and st. regis, the great chains of this world coming together. that sounds pretty good. thank you, nicole. >> thank you. stuart: wait a minute. we have sold -- solved the twitter mystery. we know why they are 16% higher. ashley: there are reports, stuart, that twitter is getting some interest with tech companies with regard to buying
9:38 am
twitter. some names being kicked around, sales force, or perhaps google. stuart: that's it. >> as a result the stock is starting to pick up. stuart: that will do it for you. >> can only be a deal rumor. couldn't be the recent results. stuart: twitter's recent results? >> moving higher. momentum of this company is all negative. stuart: they're a vehicle. ashley: i think nfl thing is good for them. >> i think that ultimately they lack scale of facebook or google. they're getting crowded out by ad dollars flying to other very much use. stuart: up 17%. >> someone might buy it. stuart: that is just speculation. very important story. here it is. monsanto, they're buying the licensing rights to a company called crisper. crisper has process for modifying genes that give you produce that's not the technically gmo, okay? so distinction, between gmo and crisper gene. explain it. liz: everybody hates monsanto
9:39 am
for gmos, right. that is problem, certainly in europe. instead of swapping in an organism to change the dna of the vegetable, they're basically changing the dna of the vegetable itself, taking out a letter or two from the code. instead of introducing an organism and they're going into the vegetable to protect it from turning brown or duty, whatever. this is game-changer. >> so beneficial for some people around the world. we have to get over the overwrought debate about gmos. stuart: genetic engineering works. >> the alternative is starvation because there is not enough food. i will take the gmo. stuart: wait a second, scott shellady, scott, are you still there? i know you're hanging on here. >> i am here. stuart: i want a comment on gm os and genetically engineered food from you? >> obviously it is a hotpoint. we're having hard time exporting
9:40 am
that stuff, other large countries don't take it. liz is exactly right when she says monsanto not very well-liked. not well-liked in farming community, they charge you a technology fee. they are the tech company of the agribusiness. going from gmo, to gco, genetically changed organisms is a fantastic idea. that might be the world's biggest work around. liz: that means government can't say it is technically gmo. removes the gmo argument. stuart: bayer presumably still wants to buy them for $127 a share. monsanto's stock is down. what is going on? liz: antitrust. stuart: viacom's stock taking tax write-down on movie that hasn't come out yet. ashley: what kind of vote of confidence is that? stuart: explain. ashley: comes out in about four months. a movie called, "monster trucks." this thing was supposed to have actually been released years ago. summer of 2015. but they had problems with it getting pushed back, getting
9:41 am
pushed back. story of a teenager who discovers a creature given his pickup special powers. was supposed to be animated movie. after a while, this was put together by paramount's ex-chief president, who had a long conversation with his four-year-old son and came up with the movie idea. they're writing it off. writing down, 125 billion, million was the budget. they're writing off 115 million. >> i can't wait to not see this movie. why in such a hurry to take the charge now? maybe they're clearing the decks for some kind of transaction coming later. stuart: that is were why the stock is up. you're absolutely right, jack. my apologies to scott shellady we didn't bring into the discussion often enough. thanks for being there. >> no problem. stuart: to one and all, thanks indeed. check the big board. we're down but not that much. 35 points lower. 18,350. hillary clinton's attempt at

9:46 am
will lester holt or any debate moderator push back on trump's misstatements an fabrications. in other words, being against the iraq war and being for it. trump many camp is saying not have any moderator. i don't think the clinton campaign is for that. the name of the game is attack the moderator. stuart: clinton campaign, not seeing any that from trump but that is what the clinton camp is saying. videos that won't go away, one of them, between the ferns. a comedy sketch. hillary clinton took part. didn't go well. let's watch this. >> let's talk about trump. >> oh, let's. >> when you see how well it works for donald trump, do you ever think to yourself, oh, maybe i should be more racist? stuart: do you know, you think that was leading and very pejorative question? is an attempt to inject that word racism into the campaign? david webb is with us, sirius xm patriot host.
9:47 am
i get the feeling word, racist has lost its sting because it is used far too often. >> if you overuse it, use it in ways that when it doesn't really matter or apply, of course you lose the effect of the world. all this is, stuart, with hillary clinton and the "between two ferns," it is bill clinton blowing the sax on arsenio haul. that is what it is. stuart: didn't work. >> has a few days off. getting ready for the debates. she needs to be injected on the conversation. on one side, vox, talking about its as great interview. sarcasm alert. she hasn't done any real interviews. other side saying she regrets doing it. frankly the american voter doesn't care about two ferns. what matters, getting press and doesn't have effect. stuart: i disagree. there were 23 million views of the between the ferns, 23 million.

i think reaction was largely negative t wasn't negative. hillary looked a little taken aback. at end they put in ridiculous charges of trump against racism. >> you see those 23 million views have to translate into something. example, you were doing a story about twitter and value of its stock. well, if you're trying to use advertising, you're trying to sell to buyers, purchasing power. twitter is having a problem, because people who are using it by and large have less purchasing power therefore is fails. purchasing power versus voting power. if the views don't translate into something, like watching cats falling off a piano. it has no effect. stuart: if you're going into television that situation, trying to shore up millenial base, young woman base, african-american base, i don't think it worked. i don't think shy has the personality to carry through on television. that is a huge negative in politics today. >> it absolutely is because the first thing a politician, stu, has to do, make a connection to
9:49 am
the person. agree or disagree? you and i are having a conversation, if i'm not that interested in listening to what you have to say, which i always am, if i'm not you haven't made the connection. hillary clinton doesn't make that connection to the millenials but yet the older white gentleman, bernie sanders did because he could make the connection, so 23 million views doesn't translate to action, to voters. she has got a problem. stuart: i think we dealt with that david webb, thank you. >> we'll see you soon. stuart: stuart: left-hand side of the screen, another lifetime high for amazon, just keeps going up. 807 as of right now. check the overall market, we're down 43 points in the early going on wall street this morning. if you look at the left-hand side of your screen, there is an awful lot of red right there. only five stocks in the green. that means overall preponderance of selling this morning. stocks on the whole, largely a little bit lower. i have some breaking news for you. donald trump releasing new names

for his possible supreme court picks. he is about to release them. ashley: we're told he is going to release them at some point today. stuart: mike lee. ashley: senator mike lee. margaret ryan. probably a lot of judges n we don't know. edward mansfield. most of are judges operating in court of appeals. iowa supreme court another one, keith blackwell, justice of the supreme court of georgia. listen this, is a list of 10 potential candidates among those that he says he will be looking at. stuart: who fills the supreme court vacancy is a big deal. ashley: huge. stuart: donald trump is getting out in front of it. ashley: 4-4 right now on each side. stuart: got it. we're short on time. it is three-hour show, we're short on time. back in a moment.

9:55 am
illness. >> illegal aliens. >> honestly we're all basically illegals because we're not from here. >> i want to die. >> i just want to die. >> i just want to die. >> i of course i wouldn't say it if i knew someone was -- [inaudible]. stuart: i don't wish to be insensitive but that is a load of rubbish. gillian melcher is with us, always original. she brought the story exclusively. explain what on earth is going on with the youngsters. >> not just cal state northridge. this is bunch of universities using inclusive campaigns. they insist it is not word policing but making student more thoughtful about choice of words. when you thought students explaining why this word is offensive and you wouldn't use it like crazy, it is language policing. stuart: it is. on camera they're being ask, why is crazy a wrong word to use, or hate speech?
9:56 am
who you're saying it to might know somebody who is crazy. >> is crazy. which i wouldn't call someone with mental illness crazy but you could and not be offensive. but i think bigger thing here, this is something happening across colleges and universities. it's policing language in a way i think really challenges the opportunity to explore ideas on campus, engage in free speech and discussion. stuart: absolutely. >> that is what is underpinning this whole thing. stuart: is it widespread? you brought this from cal state northridge. that is one example. >> sure. stuart: could you duplicate that in 100 or 200 or 300 other colleges in america? >> quite a few of them. we're getting records. we got that video as part after records request. i have seen ones from university of nebraska, lincoln. university of northern colorado where they had a whole list of words, actually put all over campus. one student ended up writing free speech matters. they took the sign down and put it up, this was site of a bias-related incident.
9:57 am
cal state northridge, what we also saw them putting up words offensively offensive, derogatory words against women. trying to promote the words were offensive, they printed them in all caps and hung them around campus. like if any other group would have done would be super offended. they got a bouncey ball pit like at mcdonald's for college students. if you're at college, you can be expect to not use obviously offensive swear words and can play in ball pit. ashley: i went to cal state northridge. never got a ball pit. stuart: gillian, thank you. check the big board please. dow jones industrial average is down 36 points. got it. mark cuban, billionaire, adamantly, he dislikes trump in the extreme. well, he will be the in front row at the debate monday night. and cuban -- it is at hofstra university. he is calling it the humbling at hofstra. the microsoft cloud helps us

10:00 am
stuart: how you come across on tv is very important in politics. you want to show justifiable righteous anger? well don't do what hillary clinton did this week. speaking to union members through a satellite hookup, she seemed just plain angry. why am i not winning by 50 points she asked? the tone was harsh. why are you yelling at me? that is the first thing came to my mind. union members to whom she was talking not likely to respond angrily and frustrated candidate. suppose you want to humorous can be very good tactic. remember ronald reagan promising not to hold his opponents youth and inexperience against him in the election that. that was funny. hillary clinton in comedy show, "between two ferns." she wanted to appeal to millenials t wasn't funny.
10:01 am
it generated into a low-rent attack on donald trump. in a week where she larry appeared in public. they became her public face. polls she she is losing ground with union members and young voters. polls only show her three points ahead of trump with women. she is behind in iowa an georgia. the visualism imagine tells the story. donald trump knows that better than anyone. second hour of "varney & company" about to begin. ♪ stuart: eboni williams is with us. is audience hearing this? >> you've got mail. >> what happens if you become pregnant? are we stuck with tim kaine for nine months? how does this work? >> i could send you pamphlets that might help you understand. having said all this why aren't i 50 points ahead you might ask?
10:02 am
claim. will the choice for working families has never been clearer! stuart: i was surprised by that. taken at back to some degree when i see that on my screen. ebony k williams is with us. she will give us more objective review. >> mrs. clinton, mrs. clinton. start with two ferns. stuart: please. >> candidates that struggle with likability and percent that ability ratings. whatever you think of his policiespresident barack obama is fantastic at this. he is very funny. doesn't take himself seriously on the shows t works for him. hillary was trying to duplicate it. that is not her personality. she is not not funny public campaign. stuart: they were angry at the episode with the host. they didn't like that.
10:03 am
what is your reaction to the angry hillary addressing union workers? >> i will put my legal hat on. hillary clinton ask also a lawyer. at one point she was a trial lawyer. one thing we learn when we're in trial advocacy training is to lower your tone of voice, especially as a woman. that high-pitched, high register thing comes across as a yell, never bodes well t really gets your message loss. stuart: is that 6:00ist? >> no it is a communication strategy. i have a background with this and trained in this and as legal trained trial lawyer. ashley: she was not talking to jury. she is taking on as the unions. she tends to have this loud, shouting tough demeanor. >> it is not good. if you're charging the union workers to be accountable for your lack of success in the polls. ashley: very aggressive. >> that is not the way to play that. stuart: we first read verbatim. we read what she said in the printed form. didn't make that big of a deal.
10:04 am
we weren't going to use it. then we saw the video, put that on, because that's different. i have never seen her look like that before. >> that shows power of messaging. stuart: shows power of television. you have to control your image on television. you have to be very careful. i know that. now earlier, president obama defended the hillary's character on abc's good morning america. so watch this. >> there is a level of mistrust and caricature of her that just doesn't jibe with who i know. stuart: well, what do you make of that? a level of mistrust in her? >> well, unfortunately for hillary clinton president obama's endorsement is not all she needs to win the election cycle. if it was up to him, perhaps. but these numbers haven't moved, stuart. that is what she has to be concerned about. the numbers haven't gotten better over course of very long election cycle. we're six, seven weeks out. that is a problem. i think they're very concerned. maybe a little desperate, perhaps. stuart: you're right.
10:05 am
her numbers with millenials, young people, and women have not improved. >> they have not improved irk in fact they deteriorated. >> trustworthy numbers gone down just a tick in the most recent polling of that,. president obama needs to be out there more for her actually. he is doing pretty well in his base right now. he and michelle obama are probably the best things hillary has going via surrogates. stuart: got it. thank you very much indeed. we broke this news last hour. donald trump about to release more possible supreme court nominees. ashley, we can confirm at least one of these. ashley: there was a list of 10 names. the one we've confirmed, senator mike lee, which is interesting because he is not a trump guy. in fact he was a ted cruz guy. stuart: yes. ashley: we got this message from his communications director saying, quote, senator lee, already has the job he wants which is why he is campaigning to represent the people of utah again. this new list has not changed senator lee's mind about trump in any way whatsoever.
10:06 am
stuart: ed rollins, with us, trump supporter, raises money for donald trump. he is with us this morning. do you think mr. trump is making a play for ted cruz voters going for mike lee? >> i think he is. bottom line he doesn't need to talk about supreme court justices at this point in time. he did that drill earlier when he laid out his lists. he at this point needs to talk about jobs and economy, better than hillary clinton and who is on his cabinet or court is not relevant. stuart: is he trying to shore up republican support down vote? >> i think key thing he has to invigorate his own base. he is doing much better among republicans. there is still a few republican out in the wilderness that will probably not come in. at this point, independent voters will be key to this election as they always are. he has to talk about the jobs and economy where people give him great credit. stuart: first big deal is debate on monday night at hofstra university. as of right now hillary clinton has cleared her entire campaign schedule to prepare for that. also, i want to bring this to
10:07 am
you your attention, ed. mark cuban, he has got a seat at the front row on the debate, right in front. he is not a trump supporter. just got a front row seat to watch hillary clinton overwhelm donald trump at the humbling at hofstra monday. it is on! >> i hope he behaves better than he does at his own basketball games. he is bad boy would like to be president himself one day. he will not intimidate trump. it is kind of a tacky technique. be like if the trump people put monica lewinsky in the front he row to distract hillary. you don't do that to certain extent. stuart: ed, hold on a sond. kellyanne conway, trump's campaign manager, who you know well. >> i know. great talent. stuart: she addressed the mark cuban presence at the debate monday night. roll tape.
10:08 am
mark cuban in front row, monday night, invited by hillary's campaign. what do you say to that? >> he is welcome to invite whoever she wants. this is typical monday night for hillary clinton spending it with billionaires who don't particularly care for donald trump. stuart: that was a good line. spending it with billionaires who don't care for donald trump. >> her new tax policy will take a big chunk of their money. stuart: you're not buying that? >> i'm not buying that. stuart: there isn't a single mult my millionaire or billionaire pay a dime of estate tax? >> i never worry about billionaires and millionaires. i assume they can do well for themself. stuart: i take this seriously. hillary clinton says i have 65% top tax rate going against super-rich. they will not pay the tax. it is window-dressing. >> it is a political campaign. she is struggling with certain base. i think problem here, and, as fellow guest here, the beautiful communications expert there
10:09 am
said, at the end of the day this is campaign in chaos. she thought she was inevitable nominee. stuart: that is strong word, ed rollins. chaos? >> chaos, absolute chaos. talk to anybody around it, she is very upset. her inner circle is very upset. they, she can't understand why she is not way ahead of donald trump. the worst thing to do in a campaign to have dispain for your opponent and not treat them with respect they deserve. to certain extent she underestimated her primary opponent. hue can the socialist from vermont give me at real run. billionaire, celebrity tv personality, how could he be challenging me with my inevitable background, you know -- ashley: inevitable background. >> they thought they were going to be president. stuart: we got some more news on how donald trump is preparing for the debate. what have you got, ash? ashley: couple little interesting nuggets if you like from the trump campaign on the debate and hillary clinton. it is their thinking that the longer she talks, then she really starts to lose people.
10:10 am
they also believe, so their theory is, let her talking. she will lose more people as she goes along. other issue picked up going through hours and hours of tape. she is well-polished and well-rehearsed on first question but weak and vulnerable on all follow-up questions. stuart: comment, ed? >> there is some truth to that. she is a policy wonk. she will basically devote way more time than she probably needs to get ready for this debate. i would imagine she would be fatigued by time she gets there. trump basically watches fox. does his thing. play a round of golf. go in there do what he does all the time. he is entertainer first and foremost and very good unwith. he understands television very well. this is television show. he is not going to flinch in any way, shape or form. 90 minutes before, 80, 90, 100 million people, wow, bring it on. stuart: ed rollins, thank you very much. >> my pleasure. stuart: stay there eboni, we have more for you. big board, down 50 points about
10:11 am
the low for this day. how about the price of oil? not that much movement. at 4dollars a barrel -- $46 a barrel. down 20 cents. valvoline, went ipo. make mote tore oil and transmission fluids. i grew up on that stuff. another record high for amazon. it was at 807 a few minutes ago. now at 802 awfully close to all-time highs. alphabet, $814 a share. facebook exaggerated viewing time of their ads. market doesn't like that. take it wn% at 127. president obama still wants to shut down guantanamo bay before leaves office. our next guest says the president misled the public on that and is putting american lives at risk. we have this, leaked email from immigration officials. they're rushing to turn immigrants into u.s. citizens before the election.
10:12 am
how about that? more varney in a moment.
10:13 am
10:14 am
it's a very specific moment, the launch window. we have to be very precise. if we're not ready when the planets are perfectly aligned, that's it. we need really tight temperature controls. engineering, aerodynamics- a split second too long could mean scrapping it all and starting over. propulsion, structural analysis- maple bourbon caramel. that's what we're working on right now. from design through production, siemens technology helps manufacturers meet critical deadlines. i think this'll be our biggest flavor yet. when you only have one shot, you need a whole lot of ingenuity.
10:15 am
stuart: an email from within the administration shows immigration officials have been rushing to make as many citizens, as many immigrants citizens as they can before the election. ash? ashley: turns out shameless effort to generate more votes for hillary clinton. let me just show you this. this was from internal emails in the immigration service. let me show you this. the new field office, due to the election year needs you to process as many as n-400 cases that is citizenship cases as possible between now and fiscal year 2016. get going. they're encouraged to apply for overtime to get more people pushed through the system and in theory more votes. stuart: answer me this, liz, if those new citizens voting republican do you think the administration would be rushing to make them citizens? >> no, this is what clinton was accused of doing.
10:16 am
stuart: bill clinton. liz: didn't the department of homeland security said they mistakenly gave citizenship to 850 people from countries of concern like terrorist hot spots? stuart: yeah. liz: why are they rush r rushing this. stuart: if they were republicans would they be doing this? ashley: no. >> you have to ask the question why airport republicans make a broader play for this base? stuart: okay, catchy title, disgraceful gitmo exodus. how president obama, the author says, misled the american public in an attempt to shut down gitmo and putting americans lives in danger. steve hayes wrote the article. he is with us this morning. make your case, steve. go. >> good morning, stuart. to start with the president misleading the american public that is not disputable. what the president said at beginning of this year he was releasing low level individuals and only a handful returned to
10:17 am
the fight. his own director of national intelligence put that number closer to 200 guantanamo, former guantanamo detainees that returned to the fight. even the "taliban five" were senior taliban officials. there are many other high level al qaeda operatives the president released or transferred. knows this. when he says in an interview he is releasing or transferring low-level individuals and only had a handful returned to the fight, we know that that is categorically false. stuart: why is he doing it? there is a enormous opposition to him doing this. we know that they're going back on to the battlefield to kill americans. we kw is. so why is he so committed to doing it no matter what? >> remember, closing guantanamo was a key part of president obama's case for election in 2008. this was the argument he made. we're going to take the united states on a different path. george w. bush has done this. we'll reverse most of george w. bush's counterterrorism policies and
10:18 am
we're going to close guantanamo. he comes in office, second day in office he issues an executive order mandating guantanamo be closed within a year. he faced reality. people told him, look, mr. president, that is not really feasible. what he is doing now, taking terrorists who remain there, who are the worst of the worst. people who could have been released without maybe causing us much danger, they were released 10 years ago. the people who remain in guantanamo today, are there for a reason. and president of the united states and his administration is rewriting the threat assessments provided by the military and intelligence professionals about these detainees in order to release them. stuart: now that is going to be part of his legacy. i've been very harsh, maybe too harsh, about his legacy. i'm saying his foreign policy is largely a failure. his policy on terror has not been widely successful.
10:19 am
his policy on domestic recovery shows the worst recovery from recession since world war ii. am i a little too harsh, you're smiling. >> i don't think so. stuart: i don't want to be real harsh about the president of the united states of america as he comes to the end of his term. am i too harsh? >> no. it is important to tell people exactly what happened. i would say in your assessment of his terror policies you are far too generous. it isn't that they haven't been successful but they're a total disaster. look what the president said running for re-election in 2012, al qaeda is on the run and al qaeda decimated. basically suggesting that the jihadist threat was over. we now know isis has grown exponentially. they have amassed territory around the world. and this has been far, far from a success. it has been a complete failure. stuart: okay. plenty of material for donald trump on the monday night debate i suspect? >> no question. stuart: weil watching you steve hayes, on "special report." >> thanks, stuart. stuart: good luck.
10:20 am
see you soon. now, how about this? bill and hillary clinton buying another home in chappaqua, right next door to the home they have already got. it is over a million bucks. how about that? we'll tell you all about it. it is a compound essentially what is coming. donald trump sending a strong message to colleges, lower your tuition fees or you won't get a tax break. >> if universities want access to all of these special federal tax breaks, and tax dollars, paid for by you that they are going to make good faith efforts to reduce the cost of college.
10:21 am
10:22 am
10:23 am
stuart: eight-month high for go pro-stock at 17.06. what is going on? they have a new drone. it is called the carl ma, 800 bucks.
10:24 am
they have got a new water proof hero 5 camera in time for holidays, 17 bucks, almost on go pro. how about twitter? that is shock of the morning. up 20%. ashley: long been seen as acquisition target. it has not fulfilled monetized potential. there is reports close to acquisition or at least bidding on the company. names being put out there, sales force or google. big tech companies that may come in and buy twitter. stuart: big names like that, they get involved, up goes the stock. 21%. nice gain. ashley: yep. stuart: new this morning we're hearing the clintons are buying the house next door to the one they already own in chappaqua. ebony k williams said she would tick around to discuss this issue. >> i promised. it is friday. of course. stuart: it is a compound. >> it is. don't you hate neighbors hogging all the space and drop a mil to make it your own space.
10:25 am
stuart: i thought they were dead broke? >> this is again where hillary disconnects. can't read the temperature. own the fact you are very well i think. you made a lot of political manuevers to make that case. people have more respect. ashley: three homes over a million. >> over three million dollars. stuart: first thing this morning we learned that hillary clinton is raising the estate tax. >> allegedly. stuart: take more, they want to take more from rich people. but chelsea is not going to pay a dime in estate tax when her parents go. don't want to speculate. they will not pay this. liz: clinton's protecting chappaqua property put it in tax-free trust that avoids state tax. what is happening. she is losing millenial. quinnepiac, millenials, 33%, down 48% in august. millenials like bernie sanders plan, tax the rich. that this is a play to keep millenials in house. stuart: won't work. rich won't pay for it. >> donald trump talking about a
10:26 am
child care program, looks for many in the middle to be very appealing. she has to show even more leftist and progressive economic plan. ashley: buying 5 million-dollar home. liz: slamming entrepreneurs to create jobs for millenials that need them. stuart: to be precise, 1.6 million. ashley: thank you, 1.16. stuart: yes. >> lowbrow. liz: she's broke. stuart: stop lghing. you're all right, eboni. thank you very much. >> thank you, stuart. stuart: this, yahoo! confirming that massive hack, information on 500 million accounts stolen. they're blaming a so-called state sponsored actor for it. conservative targeting by the irs, they targeted conservatives i should say, may have cost mitt romney more than 8 million votes in the 2012 election. coming up this hour, someone who was targeted by the irs. >> i am a born free american

10:30 am
stuart: check the market. we're down about 407 points. mostly red amongst the dow 30, mostly lower on the market today. we've got yahoo!, 500 million accounts hacked, supposedly by what's called a state actor. there is more bad news for yahoo! today. liz: yeah "the wall street journal" reporting that verizon wants to buy yahoo! for 4.8 billion, telling "wall street journal" it was only notified two days ago about the hack. they have limited understanding of the breach. and now the question is, did yahoo! disclose this incident which happened in 2014? how much did they disclose it in their sec filings because the argument on wall street right
10:31 am
now, it is material to their earnings to have a half bill of their user accounts, half their user accounts, hacked. stuart: i don't understand why the stock is down only such a little when they have liability problem of huge proportion i would have thought. liz: little info who is the state actor is, china, north korea, russia? people question whether a state actor did it. yahoo! needs to give more information. stuart: it is down 2% right now. here is a story rising military tensions between india and pakistan. last week militants attacked an indian army post killing 18 soldiers. jets landing on highway. a lot of speculation that the country is preparing for something much bigger between the two countries, consistently enemies. former cia officer mike baker knows a thing or two about this. this comes out of the blue. we are told it's a big deal. i'm not sure i get it.
10:32 am
>> comes out of the blue here because we're all fixated on campaign, election coming up. this is good example coming up, crises, hot spots around the world. we're facing more crises, flashpoints than we have in a very long time and this situation, if you look at the potential for some major escalation to kick off, india, pakistan, right now in the current tension is one of them. it is all about the kashmir, disputed region. india for a long time has held that pakistani government has allowed, promoted, supported militants in the kashmir region to go in and attack india in an effort to reclaim that territory. recent attack last week sild 17 indian soldiers at one of their important bases. previous attacks killed other indian soldiers. indian government says now the
10:33 am

they get the credit they deserve. stuart: they have? >> they have. stuart: former cia guy says they have helped us? >> we have bagged a large number of important terrorists in part because of pakistan intel or military assistance. that doesn't mean they don't play both sides of the fence. they do. we have to understand that. every nation acts in its own best interests. we have to do the same thing. so we work with them to the degree it supports our national interests but we have toking pragmatic and understand what they do sometimes is not in our best interests. it is in theirs. pakistanis walk fine line being somewhat supportive of our program here in the u.s. and insuring they don't lose control of their own population because they're angry seen as puppet of the u.s. stuart: 20 seconds, pakistan is a nuclear country. it is an islamic country. do we know where their nukes are? >> well -- stuart: question for the cia. >> we do.

10:47 am
did you have to do all of that? >> you know what? as soon as i found out what the irs was asking, i got on the phone with the american center for law and justice, realized what they were asking was unconstitutional. so i did not give the irs any of the information that they wanted that was unconstitutional. however, we did sue the irs in 2013. in 2014, our case was dismissed because the attorney, the judge said, the irs is not targeting you anymore. you don't have a case. well, we appealed that. and in august of thiyear, a three-judge panel in the court of appeals gave a scathing opinion against the irs saying that they have not stopped their targeting. they have been lying, and we can go forward with our irs case. stuart: how do you feel now? because john koskinen, there was an impeachment effort, doesn't look like it will be successful. i know you won in court but john koskinen is not probably going to be impeached. how do you feel?

[laughter] i haven't. it's shaping up to be the political debate of the decade. a super bowl-sized audience is expected. three days to go, and hillary clinton's camp is lowering expectations. that's a deliberate tactic so if she doesn't do well, they can say it was expected. and if she shines, they say hillary, the come-from-behind fighter, the trump killer. hillary has spent much of this week prepping and is on debate lockdown this entire weekend. her campaign is also pressuring the moderator, nbc's lester holt.

11:02 am
stuart: hillary clinton is, indeed, in full debate prep mode. she has no events scheduled this weekend, she's prepping for the debate. mr. trump is still campaigning. i believe he's going to be out in virginia tomorrow. and look at this, now just take a cursory look right at that. this is the latest poll which shows hillary clinton up by seven points nationally. that's quite a poll. now, the last time that poll was taken -- that was last month -- hillary clinton was up 15 points. now she's up 7 points. come on in, chris wallace, fox news sunday host, the man who will moderate the third presidential debate. chris, we've just seen this poll. looks to us like trump is narrowing the gap with hillary clinton. she still has 48% support, the same as she did last month. it's trump that's come up as opposed to clinton who's gone down. what do you make of this poll? >> well, i think that there's certainly -- you can't make too
11:03 am
much of any one poll, stuart. you've got to look at a bunch of them. that's why these averages of polls, i think, are so much more effective. there's no question that the gap is tightening, that he's doing better. and a lot of them she is going down. that's the one thing i think may be a bit of an outlier here. but she clearly has a lead, and she clearly has a lead in a lot of the swing states. you know, it's fascinating, it looked for a while like virginia and colorado she had put out of reach. she was up double digits in both, and then i saw a poll yesterday saying she's only up three or four points in each. and, of course, any of these polls are going to be out of date after monday because that will certainly, if not dramatically reshape, it'll certainly alter the race to some degree. but as we go in, she's got a lead, she's got an easier path to 270 electoral votes than he does, but he's definitely tightened it, and in a couple of the swing states like ohio, he
11:04 am
may actually be leading. stuart: chris, hold on for a second. i've got breaking, developing news on how mr. trump is fracturing for the debate. -- preparing for the debate. >> a couple of interesting angles coming from the trump camp, saying they're trying to tell the candidate, mr. trump, to let hillary clinton talk on and on. they say that is when she starts to lose viewers and supporters, when she continues to talk and talk. secondly, they say that they know that she's very polished and well-rehearsed on all the questions, the first initial answer, but she starts to stumble on all the follow-up questions, and they're focusing -- stuart: so that's what they're doing. >> some of the theory, yes. stuart: any comment, chris? i'm sure you heard that. >> yeah. i think there's a little bit particularly in the first one of spin about that. you've got to remember that some of the things that they're telling us are things they may believe, and some of them are things that they kind of want to put into our head or put into the heads of the opponents. the clinton camp says exactly the opposite which is they hope
11:05 am
trump talks and talks, because a they think after he gets through his lines, that he begins to falter a bit. i will tell you one thing that i do believe is the case, and that is that i've heard from sources in the trump camp that they understand the fact that, clearly, she is going to have more facts and be better versed in a lot of these issues than he is, but they want to try to turn that around on her the way that barack obama turned it around on clinton in 2008 when she talked about the fact that she had more experience in a lot of these issues than a new, young senator like barack obama and that trump will, in effect, echo obama and say, well, look where all that experience got us, you know? it got us into iraq, into obamacare and try and turn her greater experience into a liability rather than an asset. stuart: now, the moderators are under a lot of pressure here. hillary's supporters want the moderators to fact check trump. i don't think you want to do
11:06 am
that when you moderate the presidential debate be now, do you? >> well, look, you know, i know my colleague, our colleague matt lauer took a huge hit and a lot of criticism that he hadn't fact-checked trump during that commander in chief forum. that was an interview, so it was only lauer and trump on the stage. well, there's going to be another to perp on the stage in the debate -- another person on the stage, and that'll be hillary clinton. it goes both ways. one of the best questions i can ask is somebody says something perhaps questionable, is to just say to the other one, well, what that? and let them do it. i really, to a large degree, take a minimalist view of this. nobody turns in to watch the umpire during a baseball game, they tune in to watch the players. [laughter] and my feeling is, you know, i want to see them debating and fact-checking each other, not me doing it.
11:07 am
stuart: unless the umpire steps right into the middle of the game, which has happened in presidential debates. i want to bring you one more story, we broke this earlier. donald trump is about to release more possible supreme court nominees. senator mike lee, a ted cruz guy, we know is one of these trump nominees or who he would nominate if he were president. what do you make of this, chris? >> well, i'm a little surprised. he already put out, trump did, a big list of very respected conservative jurists and public be figures as potential supreme court nominees. this certainly will help him with the cruz/lee/tea party wing of the party to the degree that he is trying to build up support, you know, and unify the party going into the first debate, but you might see hillary clinton go after that and try to take some of the positions that mike lee or ted cruz has taken over the years, a lot of which are certainly conservative and socially
11:08 am
conservative and try to use those against trump. it's kind of an interesting, and i must say, a little bit surprising thing for him to be doing two days before the debate. stuart: how would you describe your condition, chris? nervous or focused in advance of the presidential debate? [laughter] >> impatient, i would say. stuart: really? 100 million people are going to watch you, chris wallace. >> oh, please don't do that. don't do that to me, stuart. [laughter] stuart: okay. 50 million are going to watch you. [laughter] >> well, that isn't a lot better. here's the point, on the one hand you really want to get going. it's a big assignment, a big responsibility, but on the other hand, you really can't. you want to see the first debate, see what's talked about there. and if we were talking a week ago, they hadn't had the terrible bombing in new york, we hadn't had those two african-americans shot and killed in tulsa and charlotte, and that has dramatically changed what i suspect are going to be lester holt's questions.
11:09 am
so, yes, you can do a lot of preparation and spade work, but you've got to be nimble and focus on what's hot and what's on people's minds as you go into that debate. and in my case, it's not until the 19th of october. stuart: chris, i would be a bowl of jelly, but that's another story. [laughter] be sure the tune in, "fox news sunday," join chris. he's going to sit down with the republican vice presidential nominee, governor mike pence. and with joel benson, hillary clinton's chief strategist. that's 2 p.m. eastern on the fox news channel. check your local listings for sunday morning air times. chris wallace, thank you very much. much more ahead on this ram. a military faceoff between india and pakistan. they are two nuclear powers. they've been at odds for centuries. that's a developing situation. hillary clinton laying out plans to raise the estate tax. when you die, the government could be taking a much bigger chunk of your money. there is a catch, of course, and we'll tell you what it is. first, we've uncovered a

11:14 am
ground, but apparently we are. >> no, the president is correct. the mission that these troops have, stuart, is train and assist. now, we do have some direct combat troops there that are special operations forces that do have a direct combat mission, but that is a very limited mission and only done on special occasions. the overwhelming majority of all of these troops -- and you're correct, this number will top out about 64, 6500 when these 500 get there, is to train and assist the iraqi security forces. that's their mission. yes, they could be in combat, and some of them have been, and some of them have, unfortunately, been killed. but their major missioning is to help the iraqis fight and fight effectively. stuart: can you give us a progress report on that mission to take isis? we understand that it is making some progress. >> yes, most definitely. they've largely taken most of the terrain back that began to be lost on january of 2014.
11:15 am
so it's been a three-year journey for the iraqi security forces and their government to retake that lost territory. this is the last major piece. this is the second largest city in iraq, so strategically, obviously, very important. they will take this city back. how long it takes will depend completely on isis. does isis want to stay and fight with thousands of fighters, or will they depart and leave after putting up some resistance like they have done elsewhere so they can preserve those fighters for another day, we don't know that answer. stuart: what we want as isis leaves, if they leave mosul, we want to see white flags or guys with hands in the air. that's priceless publicity. isn't that what we want? >> yes, certainly. we want a total military victory. we'll get that. but what will remain, and it's like pulling off a scab here, the political problems in iraq that drove and permitted some of
11:16 am
the success that isis achieved -- that is, the sunni/shia divide and also division among the kurds -- those issues are still there. the political issues are as great in iraq as were and are the military issues. and our state department has not addressed these, i think, to the degree that they could be. the military has done a very good job in helping the iraqi security forces, albeit some of us think it could have gone a little faster. they are going to get the result that they want, but the political result, that is a long way off, and we have let the iranians have far too much influence in iraq. stuart: there are reports that there are troop movements, pakistan and india. it's a military faceoff between the two. are we going to -- are we in for a weekend of surprises? could this thing flare up? cause that would be a very big deal. >> i don't think so. what we have had is four gunmen stormed into an indian army brigade headquarters and killed 18 indians who were in that headquarters. normally what happens here, and

11:24 am
politics and appreciation for politics and respect for politicians when you see a dramatic turn-around -- >> no. stuart: -- in opinion? eight years ago hillary clinton was not a very nice person -- >> right. stuart: -- from senator obama. >> now she should be leader of the country. stuart: now she's the best qualified person to become president. >> the question is, hillary clinton is doing a bear hug of barack obama's policies which 60 of the polls, the people polled say the country's in the wrong direction. that's a tough one. stuart: listen to this, i've got breaking news. it's the ap breaking this. they say cheryl mills has been given an immunity deal in the fbi investigation into the e-mail scandal. that's according to an unnamed congressman. >> that's exactly right. everything has just been put out. it's interesting because we know bryan pagliano was given the same deal, the guy who put in the private, the e-mail server into hillary clinton's chappaqua
11:25 am
home. cheryl mills has come up many a number of these e-mails, and a lot of these questions were how much -- where did the line from the state department cross into the clinton foundation, if you remember, and the whole pay-for-play scandal. stuart now, i don't know the meaning of the granting of immunity. i don't understand that, i don't know what that means legally, but it is a development in the e-mail -- >> to me, i always thought it was self-incrimination, that she'll be willing to talk to authorities, but you're not going to come after me. >> and then bryan pagliano, who had immunity, didn't testify before congress. stuart: true. >> he didn't show up. stuart: i wonder if we'll get a full answer to the e-mail scandal before the election. i still don't think we will, but maybe this is an incremental move, tweel see. in a moment, we're going to discuss bringing coal jobs back to america. reason to this. >> hillary clinton wants to put the coal miners out of work, ban hydraulic fracking in almost all

i'm. stuart: top clinton aid cheryl mills has been given an immunity deal in the fbi investigation into the clinton private e-mail server. that's according to an unnamed congressman. cheryl mills, immunity. i'm not sure the legalistic ramifications of this, but it appears to be a development in the e-mail scandal. we're on it. donald trump telling voters he will bring back coal jobs to pennsylvania. now, the state of ohio also is in coal country, and joining us now, congressman bill johnson, republican from ohio. congressman, there's a lot of skeptics out there who say you can't bring coal mining jobs back. how's he going to do it? >> well, absolutely you can bring coal mining jobses back. we've got -- jobs back. we've got a lot of coal mines in eastern and southeastern ohio. the infrastructure is there to transport that resource to market, to produce coal-fired energy.
11:31 am
stuart, absolutely coal mining, coal jobs can be brought back. stuart: it's not price competitive with natural gas. >> well, now, i can -- i have to admit that oil and gas is having an impact on the coal industry, but the oil and gas industry cannot provide all of america's energy by itself. coal is still the cheapest, most reliable form of energy that we know of, and there is a place in our energy profile for coal. and that's what donald trump is trying to say. if we have coal, if we have oil and gas, if we have nuclear, and if we let the market drive solutions and alternative energies like wind and solar, then we've got an energy profile that rivals and surpasses any other country in the world. stuart: now, a recent fox news poll showed donald trump leading hillary clinton in ohio, your state, by five points. can you tell us which constituent groups are leading
11:32 am
the trump charge in ohio? >> absolutely. we just talked about one of them, people that live along the river that are dependent upon coal and the energy renaissance that's going on there for their jobs, for their livelihoods. you know, hillary cln intoonly leads women in ohio by three points. women across the state of ohio, stuart, are concerned about safety and security for their children. they're concerned about a world that is being made more and more dangerous through terrorism. and they see hillary clinton as untrust wore to deal with that -- untrustworthy to deal with that, whether it's because of her mishandling of the benghazi situation or whether it's mishandling our nation's classified national security secrets. they see donald trump as the more viable alternative. and even in union households, which used to be very, very fertile ground for democrats, those people recognize that donald trump and his economic
11:33 am
plan to really get the private sector economy moving again, that's going to provide jobs for their members. so there's a whole swath of people across ohio that's pushing donald trump to victory. stuart: a lot of people are surprised at his five-point lead in ohio, because governor kasich, a republican, is flat out, it appears, against donald trump. if the republican party in your state, is the republican party in your state really split between trump people and kasich's solid republican, basic ordinary republicans? >> well, i don't see that split on the ground. 17 of my 18 counties voted for donald trump over our very popular governor, john kasich. and as you know, i was one of john kasich's very early supporters. but when he closed down his presidential campaign or suspended the campaign, it was very clear to me we had one alternative other than hillary clinton, and that was our nominee, donald trump. so i don't see that split on the ground. that may be a perception in some
11:34 am
people's minds, but the republicans that i talk to both republicans and independents, by the way, independents are going for donald trump in ohio by 15 points. stuart: andhill hillary's lead among women in ohio is only three points. that's another surprise from the state. you want to explain it? well, i can tell you that as i just mentioned, women are concerned about security, about terrorism and the safety for their children, sending them off to school. women are concerned about that. my wife, leann, is co-chair of the women more trump campaign all across ohio, and she's talking to women about why women matter and how important it is that they understand how the policies under a trump campaign, or a trump presidency is going to provide them and their children opportunities unliking what hillary clinton will -- unlike what hillary clinton will bring to the table. stuart: all right. congressman bill johnson,
11:35 am
republican from ohio, thanks for joining us, sir. appreciate it. >> thank you, stuart. stuart: yes, sir. still on the election. speaking to union members through a satellite hook-up, hillary clinton seemed -- well, i'm going to say just plain angry. she asked the crowd, why am i not winning by 50 points? listen to the tape. >> now, having said all this, why aren't i 50 points ahead, you might ask. well, the choice for working families has never been clearer. i need your help to get donald trump's record out to everybody. nobody should be fooled. he proudly declared himself 100% right to work. stuart: okay. joining us now is juan williams, the author of the book, "we, the people," and he's the co-host of a terrific show called "the five" on the fox news channel. >> thank you very much. stuart: admit it, juan, you were shocked when you -- >> that was terrible. the tone. she was ill-served by her staff, because she's in a remote
11:36 am
location trying to deliver a peach to a large group of union members -- a speech. i understand the import of what she was trying to say. she said all of you need to have an intervention with people who don't know donald trump doesn't pay contractors and all the rest. but the way she came across, i think it played to conservative caricatures as a shrill woman, belting out, screaming at her huan-- stuart: i didn't say that. >> yeah, so? stuart: you brought up the sexist -- >> you think i conservatives haven't talked about her voice? [laughter] oh, gosh. stuart: you responded to her. >> i told you it was terrible. stuart: absolutely, it was. >> i see. just telling you what i saw makes me a sexist? stuart: she's shrill. >> i said that's the way it came across, stuart. what do you want me to do? stuart: bottom line, wouldn't, in politics today, you've got to be a tv performer. donald trump is a magnificent tv performer, and hillary is not. it should not be a factor in the election, but it is. >> of course it is.
11:37 am
and, you know, he has always experience from "the apprentice," i think it was 14 years, and he has charisma and presence. physical presence. stuart: he's pretty good on tv. >> right. but the question is, and i think this is for a lot of people -- [laughter] you're not voting for a reality tv show star here. you're voting for president of the united states, and do you believe he has the capacity. stuart: look, this is going to be my first election that i've ever voted in. and in america, everywhere in the world, you're voting for the presidency, you're going to put that person on your tv set every day for four years. you've got to watch this, you've got to look at this for four years. how they appear on tv is very, very important. >> okay. stuart: and hillary's behind on that. >> yeah, i would agree on that point, but i would not say she's behind -- no -- stuart: i think he's dragging her down. >> most people understand what's most important is the success of our economy, staying out of war, not befriending dictators like putin. stuart: okay.
11:38 am
how about the estate tax? we learned this morning hillary clinton wants to take a much bigger chunk of the money that comes in from very wealthy estates. >> true, yep. stuart: this is nonsense, juan. >> oh, yeah? why's that? stuart: very rich people are surrounded by an army of lawyers -- >> correct. stuart: -- who will get them out of that's fit tax payment. so -- that estate tax payment. so this is a political smoke screen. >> no. stuart: oh, i'll beat up the rich -- >> no. because they're surrounded by that army of accountants and lawyers who protect their assets, i think it's important for us to say, you know what? we are not going to cement the income gap, the wage gap, income inequality in american society. so when hillary clinton says if you have more than $10 million when you die, you're going to be at 50% -- >> i'm sorry. >> more than 500 million -- stuart: they won't pay it, juan. what's the point? >> [inaudible] >> i'm sorry, juan, can we talk quickly? the gao found $1.2 trillion in
11:39 am
overpayments the government made. why not stop that first, then go about taxing people? the government waste there, $1.2 trillion in overpayments on medicare and medicaid earned income tax credits, that's over the last decade. >> i'm all for stopping any kind of fraud -- >> why not do it first? >> no, no, no. what you've got to do -- you can't use that as an excuse -- >> yes, you can. why? no, not about government taking too much money and wasting it. >> no -- >> $1.2 trillion! no, then you're treating taxpayers as a rounding error. >> are you going to say you have a chance to succeed, and the rich are going to pay their fair share -- >> the rich do pay their fair share. >> no, they don't. >> yes, they do! the top 20% of income taxpayers -- >> a moment ago stuart made the point -- [inaudible conversations] stuart: can we hold on a second? >> as stuart just said, the rich are protected by their lobbyists -- >> it's just outrageous. >> -- and the poor are never -- [inaudible conversations]
11:40 am
the reason bernie sanders and donald trump succeed, especially with working people -- >> you don't care about $1.2 trillion -- stuart: wait a minute. >> no one speaks for them. >> no one speaks to the u.s. taxpayer. stuart: can question get something really clear here? you can raise the estate tax on the so-called super rich, they will not pay it. do you understand that? >> yeah. do you understand we can change that? stuart: okay. one more thing. we do not tax wealth in this country, we tax income. the people who are truly wealthy will not be taxed by hillary clinton or anybody else. >> no. stuart: you can crawl up on the top of the mountain and say we're taxing the rich. it's not true. we will not tax the rich. that's why rich people vote democrat these days. do you know that? >> you're a status quo guy. you think that the rich will always have their way, and i agree, you know? he who pays the piper calls the tune. stuart: i'm just surprised -- >> there are people who can challenge, and we're in a change intersection election, and you should be on the side of the
11:41 am
working man of america. stuart: i'm so surprised to see democrats working people in this country, trying to convince them they're going to mak pay, and they know perfectly well they will not. >> no. they want to change the direction that says the rich protect their assets and the middle class has to pay. stuart: what? is that what hillary clinton is saying? >> that's what i think bernie -- and by the way -- >> the middle class has to pay? >> oh, no. when you come to international trade deals, what is trump saying? trump says those deals benefit the -- stuart: wait a minute, do you understand? i don't mean to be condescending. >> no, please do. make the point. stuart: rich people to do not make estate -- >> and you are stuck in that mood that thinking that change is not possible. stuart: high income earners pay tax. not wealthy people. there won't be a single billionaire in this country who pays a dime in these higher estate taxes, not one. and they will all vote for hillary clinton. it's a political smoke screen to convince working people that it's fair.
11:42 am
i'm going to be fair. that's nonsense. she is not fair, she's not going to tax the -- >> they are voting for hillary clinton because they believe that donald trump would sink our economy -- stuart: no. >> yes, they have a self-interest. self-interest. >> no. self-interest? stuart: because she will not tax them. >> we're talking about donald trump who says he's a zillionaire. you don't get the change is possible. you know what? the pitchfork brigade is coming to your house. [laughter] stuart: out of time. i believe we're going to hold you over. >> you are? okay. stuart: are holding him over? good lord. >> more pun for us. stuart: say there, everybody. more fireworks momentarily.

11:50 am
you've got 20 seconds. >> no, i -- listen, i happen to think that the working man in america, the striver, is who we need to protect as a society in terms of our policy. so i'm all for going after the super rich who create their foundations and corporations that, essentially, you know, just hold onto the money. so i'm with you on that point. but let me just tell you, if you think that the rich will always be protected, we've seen great societies fall on such theories. >> i can't believe this argument. >> what? >> i'm astonished. stuart: astonished. >> you know, the u.s. government has more saints in it than the catholic church, did you know that? they're so state of the art on their tax saying and spending -- taxation a spending. stuart: will you ever come back? >> i don't know. i must -- it makes the blood, it's good for the heart.
