3:00 am
hello friends. good morning. today is saturday the 8th of august 2015. i'm anna kooiman. the numbers are in and it was a record breaker, folks. the dust has settled from the first gop debate. and 24 million people tuned in. this morning the candidates are on the move. and we'll tell you who is already seeing a big bump. and then he murdered a dozen people in cold blood, but the colorado theater shooter is spared death because of one juror. if you can't get the death penalty who are can? a fair and balanced debate coming up. in sparks fly on two packed planes. hours later another engine
3:01 am
bursts into a fireball. look at this. with hundreds on board at the time. dramatic video coming in this morning. show you more. "fox & friends" begins right now. you never know what you're going to see on "fox & friends." today we have a carnival on the plaza. you can have your own carnival in your own backyard. fantasy world entertainment. >> wow. very often we'll have carnival-type food, chocolate covered bacon, cotton candy, deep fried twinkies, but today we've got the game. >> that one will make me sick. the spiny things, make me sick. >> there's a presidential race underway and we have three candidates on the show this morning. governor scott walker, senator marco rubio and governor mike huckabee joining us in the coming hour. stay tuned for that. first, the gop debate on fox on
3:02 am
thursday night broke all records, even more people watched than anticipated. the numbers are in 24 million people tuned in. it's a new record in cable news. >> that's unbelievable. so up against sporting events. only the national championship game had more people watching. the highest rated most watched event in cable news history. >> compare this to some past election cycles back in 2012 about 7 million people are watching. back in 2008 about 7 million people. just for some context there. look at that. 2016 is just blowing 2012 out of the water. >> this is way more exciting to watch than sports. thursday's debate bigger than all of this year's nba finals, mlb world series games and most of the years nfl matchups as well. >> we had a debate party at my house. >> you did? that's great. i popped popcorn. >> people are saying who knew this could be this much fun. because there were so many fireworks. >> so why is this? there is a connection between
3:03 am
the concern people feel about a country and the extent to which they pay attention to its politics. my sense, of course donald trump helped. people wondered what he was going to say, obviously. but i also think gop primary voters are genuinely worried about the direction of the country. so one of the reason supporting trump in the first place in my view. but also, they care. they're invested in the future and see this election as a pivot point. >> interestingly too attention was held over the many hours of this debate because there were so many moments that kept voters engaged throughout the entire debate. twitter actually broke down some of the most commented moments throughout this debate. >> first up we had marco rubio remarking that if political resumes were the most important thing, then @hillaryclinton would win. jeb bush answering questions about his brother's war and illegal immigration. john kasich discussing incarceration policy and his position on same-sex marriage.
3:04 am
and donald trump mentioning rosie in an answer about the treatment of women. finally. >> yeah. finally the big back and forth, people were criticizing it's not really a debate. here you had a debate moment where rand paul and christie went after each other debating 9/11, giving oue ining >> basically rand paul says reading my e male does not make this a safer country. you ought to get a warrant. the government needs a warrant according to the constitution, bill of rights, before violating people's privacy. to which chris christie said, look, i've hugged the victims of 9/11 therefore you're wrong, i guess. >> well -- >> he was talking about the hug. he said you went out and hugged president obama. is that what you're going to do again and again? is that what you want to do? and christie said actually the hugs i remember were for the 9/11 victims. and you saw that body language from rand paul, the eye roll that a lot of people were upset about. >> the eye roll a lot of people comparing that. that popped up on social media
3:05 am
this week he looked like the church lady with that eye roll. but chris christie firing back on the point where he got fired up saying how do you know who's a terrorist. it's not like you have a list of terrorist e-mails and you leave the american people at home. >> what's so interesting to me of all the people on stage, ten people on the stage, senator paul spoke the least. he spoke for a little over four minutes, this compares to about over ten minutes for donald trump. and yet he did leave a lasting impression, at least in my mind, whether you agree with him or not, because he spoke from principle. he actually laid out pretty clearly what he believes and why he believes it. and i would say, again, i'm sure many of our viewers dislike his views and dismiss him, but this is a model, i think, for candidates. tell us what you really think and tell us why. he did so. >> he was there to make a lasting impression. he also spoke out when donald trump raised his hand and said i'm not going to rule out a third party run and he was the first one to stand up and fire out. >> why did you watch the debate?
3:06 am
send us your photos. you can also e-mail us. maybe you had a debate party as well. why did you watch the debate? what were you most interested in learning about these candidates? >> the debate, you speak as if it was one but in fact there was two. there was an earlier debate. carly fiorina, the former head of hewlett packard being discussed as a serious candidate even though she didn't make the cut of those ten in the primetime debate. >> i thought there was a real opportunity. in the 5:00 p.m. debate there was an opportunity for someone to shine and later in the 9:00 p.m. debate for them to perhaps have to answer to one of the standout candidates. and carly fiorina was the one who ended up, they even played a sound bite of her and governor perry later in the 9:00 p.m. debate. megyn kelly then did a focus group on carly fiorina and the impact she had in that 5:00 p.m. hour. listen. >> after watching her -- >> go ahead. >> i come up she's a combination
3:07 am
of gold in my ear, margaret thatcher and al capone. i'd vote for her in a minute. >> she has this great foreign policy presentation last night. she's the total package, business and foreign policy. >> she cuts with a precision of a surgeon. >> she instills confidence in you. when i listen to her talk, i was like, yes, i believe in you. she has a plan. she laid it all out, day one, day two. we know exactly what she wants to do and we believe in her. >> two prime ministers and an american gangster, that's who they are comparing her to. the other piece of it was fantastic, a smart point, one of the focus group members made was she didn't have to share the stage with donald trump either. she could talk about him while he wasn't there sucking up some of the air. >> so the question is, does carly fiorina have a future in this race? again, she didn't make the top ten according to the polls. that may change after this week. would she be an adequate or
3:08 am
helpful vice president for whoever gets nomination? that is the question you're seeing batted around. and the question carly fiorina is, is it sexist that you're only being mentioned as a potential vice president? she was asked that. here's her response. >> my guess is going forward it will get batted around less in that way. but i think to be president, and that's what i'm running to be, requires an understanding of how the economy actually works. i do. and understanding of how the world works and who's in it. i know more world leaders on the stage today than anyone running with the possible exception of hillary clinton, though i didn't do photo ops with people. >> a lot of times the vice presidential candidate is the attack dog that's unleashed. boy has she been hitting hillary hard. >> that's the thing about carly fiorina. she's super articulate. i'll be totally honest, i didn't take her as seriously as i do now. there were a lot of questions about her tenure at hewlett packard. i've never seen a politician improve as much as she has.
3:09 am
compared to last year she is just a great talker. >> to shine in a room where there's no crowd, there was no crowd during that debate, to shine in that 5:00 p.m. hour east coast time 2r:00 p.m. west coast time for these numbers and heat map of google searches, she covered the entire country in searches later that afternoon for people wanting to learn more about her. >> friends, if you missed it and you would like to see an encore presentation and perhaps you saw it once and would like to see it again, tune in to fbn tonight at 8:00. there's growing democratic divide over the iran nuclear deal at this hour. >> this coming after senator chuck schumer announced he will break ranks with president obama and oppose sglit so who better to explain what's going on in washington? no one better than chris tin fisher. she joins us from the bureau with more on the backlash from the left. good morning, kristen. >> good morning, guys. make no mistake about it, this is not the news the president wanted. right before the august recess you have three top democrats on capitol hill coming out and
3:10 am
saying they are opposed to this iran deal. two are the top democrats on the house foreign affairs committee, the other senator chuck schumer is the longest serving jewish member currently in congress. he says, quote, to me the very real risk that iran will not moderate and will instead use the agreement to pursue nefarious goals is too great, therefore i will vote to disapprove the agreement. schumer says in ten to 15 years the deal would allow iran to be a nuclear threshold state with the blessing of the world community. but the chief u.s. negotiator secretary of state john kerry strongly disagrees. here's what he said about it yesterday. >> i profoundly disagree with the judgment made. i would respectfully suggest that rejection is not a policy for the future. it does not offer any alternative. >> do these latest defections show very deep divisions within the democratic party. yesterday the white house says the president is confident of
3:11 am
the administration's ability to build support among democrats for the deal. but they'll have to do it quickly. and they'll have to do it while congress is on recess. a vote is expected shortly after they get back from the summer break. back to you guys in new york. thanks, kristin. starting with a fox news alert, a u.s. special ops base attacked overnight in afghanistan. three american soldiers reportedly injured. two militants tried to storm the kabul base but were killed, this coming after dozens were killed in a wave of bombings across the city. also breaking overnight, islamic extremists take hostages at a hotel in mali leaving 12 people dead. mali and special forces ended the hostage situation a short time ago freeing four of those hostages, but not before the attackers killed three hotel workers, a u.n. contractor and five local soldiers. three jihadists were also killed. ukrainian and russian officials say their citizens were among the hostages.
3:12 am
a piece of history for an historic visit. pope francis will speak at the same -- the pontiff will attend the world meeting of families, a catholic conference designed to strengthen family bonds. he'll also give a public mass to an expected audience of 1.5 million people. >> wonder if it will be short. all right. coming up, sparks fly on two packed passenger planes. first, flames consume a flight right before takeoff. and hours later another engine bursts into flames. we'll have that dramatic which is just coming in to us now. unbelievable. and one of the best lines of the entire debate thursday night. >> it's sad to think right now, but probably the russian and chinese government know more about hillary clinton's e-mail server than do the members of the united states congress. >> scott walker comes out swinging at hillary clinton. how does he measure up against her? we'll ask him when he joins us
3:13 am
next. my name is anne. i'm one of the real live attorneys you can talk to through legalzoom. don't let unanswered legal questions hold you up, because we're here, we're here, and we've got your back. legalzoom. legal help is here. everyone loves the picture i posted of you. at&t reminds you it can wait. bass pro shops is more than a store. it's great brands from coleman and north face to redhead and ascend. announcer: bass pro shops is the place for huge savings during our end of season clearance. there's never been a better time to come to bass pro shops than right now.

3:15 am
it's tough, but i've managed. crohn's disease. but managing my symptoms was all i was doing. so when i finally told my doctor, he said humira is for adults like me who have tried other medications but still experience the symptoms of moderate to severe crohn's disease. and that in clinical studies, the majority of patients on humira saw significant symptom relief. and many achieved remission. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. if you're still just managing your symptoms, ask your gastroenterologist about humira. with humira, remission is possible.
3:16 am
well, they may have clashed on the issues, but one thing united the republican candidates on stage thursday night, hillary clinton. governor scott walker just one of many to hit her things on like that e-mail scandal. >> it's sad to think right now, but probably the russian and chinese government know more about hillary clinton's e-mail server than do the members of the united states congress. and that has put our national security at risk. >> and governor scott walker joins me now. thanks for being with us on "fox & friends weekend". >> great to be with you. thanks for having me on. >> now, if you do indeed get the gop nod, how do you plan to defeat the democrats and the current front runner and presumptive nominee hillary clinton? >> well, we think we offer a great contrast. i'm a new, fresh face.
3:17 am
hillary clinton's name is from the past. i'm about as anti-washington you can get. she embodies the problems we have in washington. we got things done in a blue state. you look at everywhere in the world that hillary clinton's touched, it's more messed up today than it was before she and the president first took office. >> you're the son of a baptist minister in wisconsin. we have a facebook question from one of our viewers talking about religious liberties. this is from carolyn, what about businesses, maybe churches, who are forced to go against their beliefs? and you say? >> my state we've upheld our state's constitution which is very clear about religious freedoms and i believe nationally. the whole bill of rights was based in large part on the fact many of the founders were facing religious persecution elsewhere in the world and that was part of the reason why they formed a country like the united states. as president i will defend the freedom of religion, not freedom from religion, freedom of
3:18 am
religion for every american, every day i'm in office. >> you touted your economic record and wisconsin being very good, how do you plan as president of the united states to put more americans back to work and increase wages? >> well, the simple thing is by getting government out of the way. we need to repeal obamacare once and all and put patients and families back in charge. need to reign-in the out of control federal regulations like a wet blanket on the nation's economy. we need to put in place all of the above energy policy. we're an energy rich country, we need to act like it. we need to help people get the education and skills they need to succeed and careers that pay far more than minimum wage. and we need to lower the burden on hard working families. >> want your take on things because of the headlines at the charleston church massacre, the theater shooting in louisiana, the military recruitment center in tennessee, where do you stand on the gun debate? >> well, i have an a-plus record with the nra because i believe in supporting the rights of law-abiding citizens that keep
3:19 am
and bear arms. i think the contrast with many of these other cases is you see these are mental health issues. even though i'm balanced budgets and being good as a good stew ward of the taxpayer dollars, i put more money into mental health services. those are areas we need to hone in. that's a consistency in many of these cases is people who've fallen through the cracks when it comes to mental health services. it's not about taking firearms away from law-abiding citizens. it's about cracking down on the criminals and making sure the people that have mental health issues get the help they need before they reach a crisis point. >> governor scott walker, thank you so much. >> thank you. great to be with you. have a good weekend. >> and 19 minutes after the hour, speaking of coming up, the colorado movie theater shooter dodging death. one single juror holding out and preventing the death penalty for james holmes. is that fair or should there be a way to appeal? we'll debate it next. and then, joe biden ready to make his decision about running for president. what we just found out about the
3:20 am
vice president and his thinking on this question next.
3:21 am
3:22 am
3:23 am
well, some quick headlines for you this morning. first up, the navy about to start placing armed guards at reserve centers nationwide. this comes of course after a gunman murdered four sailors and marines in a chattanooga recruiting center last month. the navy says the move is necessary to protect its personnel. nothing like a little r and r to make a major decision. vice president joe biden to weigh his political future and
3:24 am
potential 2016 presidential run during a long family retreat later this month in south carolina. this comes as his aides say the vice president has shown interest in filing deadlines and in fund raising. thanks, tucker. death penalty denied. the colorado theater shooter james holmes will spend life in prison for killing 12 people and injuring 70 more. just hours -- only after hours of deliberations just one juror couldn't agree on the death penalty sparing the shooter. >> we split with one juror solidly in favor of life sentence and two that were undecided, more or less, which would go to life. and the rest were in favor of the death penalty. >> but if he can't get death, who can? here to debate defense attorneys. nice to see you both this morning. e eric, are you shocked by this verdict? >> i was shocked. we were talking off the air, this is one of those cases where
3:25 am
anyone was going to die, this guy was it. the carnage in this theater, people who were doing nothing but enjoying their family outing were killed by this madman. and to have him to serve life in prison without parole is shocking to me. i thought he was a dead ringer. >> were you shocked? >> yeah. i was shocked up until yesterday when the jurors asked to see a 45-minute crime scene evidence video. that told me that somebody was holding out and they wanted to put that carnage in that person's face to say wait a minute, why are you holding out, this case screams for the death penalty. >> it's a one juror, one juror decides this, this hold out juror decides she doesn't want the death penalty and that changes the entire course of this verdict. >> yes. because the verdict has to be unanimous. everyone has to agree on the death penalty. and that's the way our jury system is set up. even with a guilty verdict in a trial every juror has to agree. and that is reelly to make sure
3:26 am
that the jury system is fair to everyone. >> so what about the selection process? you think something else is going on here. >> this is horrible. this case demonstrates that the problem, which is unfixable, happens during jury selection. here's why. on a death penalty case the jury has to be what we call death qualify. they have to sit there and swear they could impose a death penalty if the situation warranted. i think when you have a case like this, a high profile case, and somebody just wants to get on the jury so they can tell the story or write the book, they may not be completely truthful -- >> so you think she lied? >> i think she lied. >> not necessarily. they listened to evidence, they found him guilty. >> aggravating factors exceed to mitigate -- then they put on the brake? >> that is that person's decision. even if we disagree with it, that is our system. oh, i agree, if anyone was supposed to get the death penalty, it was this guy. but that's the jury system. designed to protect everyone's rights. >> we need a better way to knead
3:27 am
out the jurors. say and do anything to get on a jury and i think that's what this woman did. >> just because we disagree with it does not say this lady tried to sneak on. >> i mean, all the evidence seemed to support the death penalty, right? premeditation, he planned this for a while, what would have changed her mind? was there some piece of evidence that kept her from thinking death penalty? >> i would imagine it wasn't evidence. it was the genius closing argument of the defense attorney who had a tough job to do, but she tried to humanize the client. if the hold out was a parent, what the defense attorney did was say this isn't a shooter, this is somebody's son. this is mr. and mrs. holmes son and that might have resonated with this jury who probably wasn't death qualified from the beginning. >> he had a mental illness. that's what i think is the big thing. he has a mental illness and people are concerned with putting mentally ill people to death for something they do. >> but they can. >> although it's horrible and he
3:28 am
killed all these people and the carnage and blood, really scary for us to go to movie theaters these days skprks this person could not find the heart to find -- >> we need to pick better juries when it comes to death penalties. >> does that make it wrong? >> we'll get you some pastry in the green room. >> okay, thanks. >> coming up, his friend fainted at the gym, when he called for help this is the response he got. >> okay. we have a short on medics so it's going to be a minute. >> it's going to be a minute. the 911 call that's turning heads this morning. plus, don't leave your house this morning. there's no need to go to the beach because we're having a carnival on the plaza. the fun starts in just minutes. and eric and i are going to faceoff in the bumper cars. >> i want to challenge you. >> you're going down. before i h burning, pins-and-needles of diabetic nerve pain,
3:29 am
these feet... ...served my country... ...carried the weight of a family... ...and walked a daughter down the aisle. but i couldn't bear my diabetic nerve pain any longer. so i talked to my doctor and he prescribed lyrica. nerve damage from diabetes causes diabetic nerve pain. lyrica is fda-approved to treat this pain. lyrica may cause serious allergic reactions or suicidal thoughts or actions. tell your doctor right away if you have these, new, or worsening depression, or unusual changes in mood or behavior. or swelling, trouble breathing, rash, hives, blisters, muscle pain with fever, tired feeling, or blurry vision. common side effects are dizziness, sleepiness, weight gain and swelling of hands, legs and feet. don't drink alcohol while taking lyrica. don't drive or use machinery until you know how lyrica affects you. those who have had a drug or alcohol problem may be more likely to misuse lyrica. now i have less diabetic nerve pain. and my biggest reason to walk... ...calls me grandpa. ask your doctor about lyrica.

3:33 am
>> senor frog is not a real person? >> no. news to some of us who've been to cabo recently. >> he has a new chain of restaurants. >> what i love is the chef here is senor frog in the house? >> there's a lot of backstage stuff that comes out of these debates. we're seeing them now because of social media more and more. the daughter of mike huckabee was caught in an elevator with a number of the candidates, ten candidates. this is what it looks like when all ten candidates are in an elevator heading down to the debate. >> a lot of power in there. >> one of these is not like the other though. can you pick out the one who stands apart from the group? >> looking in the security camera and smiling? no, that would be senator rand paul of kentucky who describes himself as a different kind of a republican. which is clearly true. >> he's down in the lower right. he's the only one sort of not engaging with the rest of them. >> even in private it's real. >> maybe he was just getting
3:34 am
into the zone. >> i'm not saying it's a bad thing at all, but it's definitely a real thing. and you can tell from this picture. >> that's a pretty remarkable picture. >> all right. onto other stories making headlines on your saturday morning. a police chief rips into confusing immigration laws after a brutal killing of a woman by an illegal immigrant. 64-year-old air force veteran marilyn ferris sexually assaulted and beaten with a hammer by two men who broke into her california home last month. one suspect, victor ramirez, is an illegal immigrant from mexico with a long rap sheet. santa maria police chief ralph martin lays the blame on washington. >> we believe there's a blood trail from washington, d.c. to sacramento into the bedroom of marilyn. we see time after time that this administration throws buckets of nails in front of i.c.e. >> ramirez and jose villagomez, a u.s. citizen, are both charged with her murder. awful. and terrifying moments for passengers on two different
3:35 am
airplanes. first the passenger on board an american airline flight recording the moment flames spit out of the engine. it happened moments after taking off from philadelphia heading to seattle overnight. the plane carrying 133 passengers did land safely back in philly. the flames caused by burning fuel. and take a look at this photo out of nashville, tennessee. a similar burnoff is blamed for sparking a fireball outside a sky west plane operated by delta. the flight was about to take off for cincinnati with 50 passengers onboard. fortunately no one was hurt. and a disturbing trend of 911 dispatchers refusing to help. this time no help for an indiana man who fainted at a gym. >> okay. we have a short on medics, so it's going to be a minute. >> you said who? >> we don't have any medics and it's going to be a minute. >> all right, well, let me try to take the man to the hospital
3:36 am
then. >> this is what his friend heard after passing out from dehydration back in may. the operator offered no more help and never transferred the call. the town's fire station was right across from the gym and could have responded. he survived his ordeal, the operator now placed on leave. and you can call this baseball play high ray robbery. >> fly ball lifted down the left field line towards the corner. >> woo! tampa bay rays outfielder grady sisemore snatches a game-tying home run. he hit a home run of his own during the game, but the mets came back to win 4-3. and those are your news headlines. hand it over to rick with a look at the weather. looked like that hurt, i got to tell you. let's talk about the weather out there. we've got a pretty great day for

>> hillary clinton lies about benghazi. she lies about e-mails. she is still defending planned parenthood. and she is still her party's front runner. >> so should hillary clinton stop paying attention to kim kardashian and focus on carly fiori fiorina? then, say good-bye to the boys and girls sections. target is ditching gender labels on toys and other items because according to at least one person they are offensive. the brave new world. we've got a dispatch from it. coming up. ♪

withof my moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis... ordinary objects often seemed... intimidating. doing something simple... meant enduring a lot of pain. if ra is changing your view of everyday things orencia may help. orencia works differently by targeting a source of ra early in the inflammation process. for many, orencia provides long-term relief of ra symptoms. it's helped new ra patients and those not helped enough by other treatments. do not take orencia with another biologic medicine for ra due to an increased risk of serious infection. serious side effects can occur including fatal infections. cases of lymphoma and lung cancer

grooving. some quick consumer headlines. target is removing gender labels from toy and bedding departments after a sign for girls building sets sparked outrage earlier this year. the company now saying advertising products by gender is often unnecessary. clothing departments will still be labeled because of size and fit differences. and no more discounted phones from verizon. the company doesn't want customers who enter into two-year contracts to get cheaper priced phones. they'll instead work on paying monthly installments towards the full retail price. they say it will simplify things, but customers could end up paying more in the long run. tucker, over to you. thank you, anna. while the republican candidates were on stage thursday night in cleveland, democrat hillary clinton was keeping up with the kardashia kardashians. instead of keeping up with the republicans. she even posed with a selfie for kim. that is apparently real. don't check your set. but maybe she should start paying more attention because one candidate is gunning for her and getting a lot of press doing
3:46 am
it. watch this. >> hillary clinton lies about benghazi. she lies about e-mails. she is still defending planned parenthood. and she is still her party's front runner. 2016 is going to be a fight between conservatism and a democrat party that is undermining the very character of this nation. >> that's carly fiorina, the former head of hewlett-packard. she's taking on hillary directly and pretty articulately. will it work? joining us now for a fair and balanced debate fox news contributor angela mcgowen. welcome to you both. the reason this is significant, i think, is hillary clinton's pitch is basically about her identity as a woman. you need a woman in the white house. i am a woman. by the way, so is carly fiorina, is this a threat? >> well, i think obviously having a woman running on the republican ticket would be a plus. carly fiorina is not that woman. she is mitt romney without the approachability and cuddliness. she fired 30,000 people at h.p.,
3:47 am
shipped their jobs to china and left with a golden parachute. that's a 30-second ad wrapped in a bow for democrats. i would welcome her to be the nominee. now, that said if the republicans ran a woman on the top of the ticket, i think that would be a plus, i just think she's not the woman to be running. >> she's so articulate. you stand back and say, wow, you just summed that up nicely. but eric makes a real point, which is her tenure at h.p. is the reason she's famous. and it's a mixed record. is that a tough hurdle for her. >> it is not. but it is a mixed bag. if we look at when she left h.p. and how the company went up. she was ceo, made some changes and changes weren't seen until she left. she is a woman who's qualified. you talk about 30-second ad, benghazi, female, lying and accepting donations from the enemy. that is very good 30-second ad. >> one of those -- besides that one of the biggest knocks on hillary is she's not relatable and approachable. people don't feel she's bill clinton in that sense. throw in carly fiorina who is
3:48 am
even more to that extreme would actually make hillary look better. >> i haven't had -- >> carly has made a payroll. carly understands that concept. we need someone in the white house that can make a difference. not talk the talk or and walk the walk. >> i'm not arguing she's not qualified. i want to make that clear. i just think she's not the right candidate. >> what about the idea being discussed as a vice presidential candidate, potentially. this is very potential at this stage. but some people saying it's sort of sexist to dismiss her and relegate her to the second tier. is it? >> no, i don't think so. it's not any more sexist than ferarro being candidate for walter -- >> but she's running ashopeful. right now they're saying in essence she'd make a great v.p. >> it's a realization she probably is not going to win the nominati nomination. >> you don't know. are you psychic? >> i can pretty much guarantee
3:49 am
she's not going to win the nomination. >> if she were a man, would people be as excited about her? >> i think she's a qualified candidate who happens to be a woman. you can say that about ben carson. he got a lot of attention because he's black. rubio got a lot of attention because he's hispanic. we in the gop we look at the qualified candidate. listen, poverty knows no gender. poverty knows no color. i think anybody on the gop side would be better than hillary. >> well, i agree with you there. >> well, it's great to see you both any way this early in the morning. boy, you're articulate before 7:00. >> happy birthday to my fiancee. i love you. >> oh, happy baby. >> amen. great to see you. coming up, household dangers. a 4-year-old dies after ingesting too much cinnamon. common household products do pose a danger to your children, we have a closer look coming up. then, he's the third bush to run for the white house so far, so what did jeb bush's brother think about his performance in thursday night's debate?
3:50 am
we'll tell you. breaking news from the bush household coming up. here at td ameritrade, they're always working. yup, we're constantly making thinkorswim better. like a custom screener on your desktop, that updates to all your devices. and you can share it with one click. wow. how do you find the time to do all this? easy. we combined every birthday and holiday into one celebration. (different holidays being shouted) back to work, guys!
3:51 am
i love this times of year. for all the confidence you need. td ameritrade. you got this.
3:52 am
3:53 am
you hear about this, a tragic incident in kentucky after a 4-year-old boy ingests cinnamon in his home and dies 90 minutes later. scarily that's not the only thing you probably have in your house that is dangerous for kids right now. here with the other items pediatrician dr. lisa sevner. nice to see you. >> thank you for having me. >> how did the cinnamon -- ground cinnamon cause this problem? >> cinnamon is very dry. it's an irritant. it's ground up bark, so when you swallow it, a teaspoon of it,
3:54 am
it's difficult to swallow and then you start to cough and gag and you can aspirate it. that bark like substance could stick in the lungs and cause inflammation, scarring, lung collapse and in this case even death. >> he inhaled it not really ate it? >> when you're swallowing it and you start to cough then you can inhale it. there are kids now, adolescents, doing the cinnamon challenge. if you're lucky you're vomiting and having a burning in your throat. it can be quite serious. >> people have shelving down low. we have spices in our house right next to the stove and they're down low. my little girl likes to pull them out and play with them. that's frightening. there are owe thames in the house that can be of concern. we've heard about the detergent pods. what's the situation with these? >> the detergent pods have concentrated detergent in it and it has a dissolvable member brain around it. it looks beautiful, like candy,
3:55 am
they can bite into it, swallow it and there's detergent in their mouth causing thousands of poisonings a year and even deaths. this is usually under the sink. >> what about these? >> you have cleaning products that are quite pretty. people will get them in the economy size and transfer them to smaller bought lts. th to smaller bottles. it looks like gatorade. it can be dangerous. >> pills, child proof caps are sometimes not good enough. >> if we leave the cap off for example. kids get into it. it looks like candy. it tastes like candy. sometimes it has pictures of the flavors on it. they could get themselves into that. >> i've heard of small batteries, aaa batteries, and even the watch batteries can get clogged in the airways. >> especially the watch batteries. some are nickel sized. that can get stuck in the esophagus and requires emergency
3:56 am
surgery and can result in death. magnets are a big deal. they can get stuck when the child takes it and swallows it. these are colorful. some other dangerous ones like the bucky balls where they're just these round, spherical objects. when you swallow them and it gets into your intestines that could stick together and you wind up getting adhesions, pathways from one part of the intestine to another, a real surgical emergency. >> some of the signs of poisoning, burns on the lips and the mouth. >> yeah, if you see some burns around the mouth like you had mentioned or if there's a funny odor, if there's difficulty breathing, of course, some behavior changes, seeming lethargic, immediately think of an ingestion of an accidental poisoning. >> keep these chemicals high and out of reach. good to see you. coming up on the show, analysts say he won the first debate. so what does marco rubio apart from the rest?
3:57 am
we'll ask him that question. the senator joins us live the next hour. then a parent's worst nightmare comes true when her 10-day-old baby stops breathing. up next, the hero police officer who saved her life.
3:58 am
hi my name is tom. i'm raph. my name is anne. i'm one of the real live attorneys you can talk to through legalzoom. don't let unanswered legal questions hold you up, because we're here, we're here, and we've got your back. legalzoom. legal help is here. more and more people with type 2 diabetes are learning about long-acting levemir®. as my diabetes changed, it got harder to control my blood sugar. today, i'm asking about levemir®. vo: levemir® is an injectable insulin that can give you blood sugar control for up to 24 hours. and levemir® helps lower your a1c. levemir® lasts 42 days without refrigeration. that's 50% longer than lantus®, which lasts 28 days. levemir® comes in flextouch, the latest in insulin pen technology from novo nordisk. levemir® is a long-acting insulin used to control high blood sugar in adults and children with diabetes
3:59 am
and is not recommended to treat diabetic ketoacidosis. do not use levemir® if you are allergic to any of its ingredients. the most common side effect is low blood sugar, which may cause symptoms such as sweating, shakiness, confusion, and headache. severe low blood sugar can be serious and life-threatening. ask your doctor about alcohol use, operating machinery, or driving. other possible side effects include injection site reactions. tell your doctor about all medicines you take and all of your medical conditions. check your blood sugar. your insulin dose should not be changed without asking your doctor. get medical help right away if you have trouble breathing, sweating, extreme drowsiness, swelling of your face, tongue, or throat, dizziness, or confusion. today's the day to ask about levemir® flextouch. covered by most health insurance and medicare plans. boy: once upon a time, there was a nice house that lived with a family. one day, it started to rain and rain.
4:00 am
water got inside and ruined everybody's everythings. the house thought she let the family down. but the family just didn't think a flood could ever happen. the reality is, floods do happen. protect what matters. get flood insurance. visit floodsmart.gov/flood to learn more. hi, everyone, and good morning. the 8th of august, 2015. i'm anna kooiman. a u.s. base attacked overnight. three american soldiers hurt. the breaking details in moments. >> and then record shattering ratings. thursday night's debate drawing a remarkable 2 4 million viewers to fox news. who won and who lost and how does george bush think jeb bush did? we have fresh reaction from the former president on his brother's performance.
4:01 am
that and much more straight ahead. and just call him father of the year. one dad gets inked so his daughter can see one direction perform. but he should have read the contest's fine print. that father and his daughters join us live with a new tattoo. "fox and friends" hour two starts right now. ♪ >> that's unbelievable. good morning, ladies and gentlemen. it's often called a carnival of news. this morning we're living up to the billing, an actual carnival on our plaza with legal analyst playing the strong man. >> i challenge you men to ski ball. >> one of my favorites. i never accept any of your challenges, anna, because i know how it will end. with me losing.
4:02 am
>> there's really no athleticism. it's just in the wrist. >> but i was a softball pitcher, that underhand -- you know. >> i don't play with anna kooiman. >> i saw him shooting water into the clown's mouth. >> i blew up a balloon. there's a presidential race coming up, speaking of carnivals. we have marco rubio, governor mike huckabee and just had scott walker on the program. there's a lot going on this morning. >> the ratings are now in. the papers are in. the numbers are in. the abacuses are all filled up. this was the most watched news program in history of cable news. 24 million people tuned in to watch this telecast. that is more -- that is slightly less, i should say, than the national championship game but more than any news broadcast in history. >> let's take a look at some of these numbers, this one as clayton mentioned 24 million in 2012 the most watched was 7.6 million and in 2008 the most
4:03 am
watched gop debate 7.4 million. so you wonder why hillary clinton is snapping selfies with celebrities during the debate rather than scouting the competition and josh ernest said he fell asleep. he thought it was a news fest apparently. >> you don't do counter programming during the super bowl and that's what this was. >> is this proof vote, will be motivated to get out to the polls? >> it's proof of something, proof of deep anxiety about the direction of the country. people are afraid. it's not that they disagree so much with the poll tis of the current president, though they do. they're terrified we're really going off the reels and they're mad at the establishment. this was not a debate about the establishment. look who got the least press. the number two and three candidates, scott walker and jeb bush, this was all about people who are antiestablishment. that's the takeaway i took. >> and social media exploded during this debate. people chiming in with their
4:04 am
thoughts and responses and twitter collated some of the more popular responses that stood out to people including marco rubio's comments that political resumes were the most important thing hillary clinton would win. a lot of people thought marco rubio looked polished and gave a strong debate performance. we'll be talking to him in a few moments. >> scott walker discussing national electability in light of his pro-life views. jeb bush answering questions about his brother's war and illegal immigration. >> john kasich talks about incarceration policy and same-sex marriage. and then donald trump responding to a question about his attacks on women by saying, you know what, it was just rosie o'donnell i was going after, and that's legitimate. >> and she fired back on twitter at him. and rand paul and chris christie got into a bit of a debate back and forth about 9/11, nsa surveillance. >> when donald trump was asked about his campaign contributions to various democrats he said, look, they're all for sale. i gave money to hillary clinton, and she came to my wedding.
4:05 am
why would you want hillary at your wedding? the directness of that -- >> you can just buy politicians like that and if somebody wants to be a part of it. >> that's what rand paul is capitalizing on. that donald trump is admitting to try to buy political favor. >> i've never seen a politician do something like that. yeah, they're for sale and i bought them, hillary clinton specifically. for this price she'll come to your wedding, too. >> it is remarkable. why did you watch the debate? send in your e-mails. you can go on our twitter stream. tell us your thoughts what you want to learn from your candidate. >> that wasn't the only debate. that was the top ten candidates according to a cross section of polls. there was a debate before them. really the person -- the breakout star by consensus carly
4:06 am
fiorina, former head of hewlett-packard. >> this is 2:00 p.m. on the west coast, so a huge swath of this country and the state she's from didn't get to watch her. they weren't home from work yet. and yet the heat map on google trends had carly fiorina overwhelmingly being the number one searched for candidate after that debate. >> and people saying why was she not on that stage? she has earned her position now, many say -- >> in the prime time show. >> correct. >> megyn kelly did a focus group and what resonated so much from carly fiorina. take a listen. >> where he said his father was a bartender and from behind the bar to this stage, to the u.s. senate, that crystallizes everything the united states is supposed to be about. we've drifted away from that and i think his candidacy speaks to let's get back to that. >> i think marco rubio is honest and open in a genuine, heartfelt way.
4:07 am
i think people like donald trump because he's open and honest but he's crass and crude. marco rubio is like, look, this is how it is. >> she was a businesswoman and now she has this great foreign policy presentation last night. she's the total package, business and foreign policy. >> she cuts with the precision of a surgeon. >> she instills confidence in you. when i listened to her talk, i was like, yes, i believe in you. >> i believe in you. also at the debate jeb bush who i think most people who live in washington sort of assume will be ultimately the presidential nominee. he was not by a long shot the most talked about candidate in the debate thursday night. the question, what did his familiy think? two of them have been president before. jeb was asked this question by our own neil cavuto and here is how he responded. >> i got an e-mail from brother george saying, well done, tortoise.
4:08 am
i told him i'm the tortoise in the race. slow and steady. that's the way i intend to win. he now calls me the tortoise. >> slow and steady wins the race. >> a smart way to go. >> once again, who do you like? did your mind change after watching these two debates on fox news channel? an encore presentation on fox business network tonight. is it at 8:00? is that right? 8:00? 8:00. so turn in to fnc. >> send us your thoughts on ff weekend as well on facebook. a u.s. special ops base attacked overnight in afghanistan. three american soldiers were reportedly injured in an explosion outside the headquarters in kabul. two militants tried to storm the base but were killed. one nato service member was also killed. their nationality not released.

the attack coming after a deadly wave of bombings across the city. and a deadly and devastating typhoon slams taiwan killing at least six. it knocked out power to more than 3 million homes with pounding rains and 125-mile-an-hour winds. at least four people are missing and an 8-year-old girl swept out to sea, we're told. some streets in taipei were left under four feet of water and strewn with falling debris. the typhoon now barreling toward china where more than 158,000 people have been asked to evacuate. he shot 12 people dead but the colorado movie theater's life will be spared. in a surprising move, the jury rejected the death penalty for james holmes and instead gave him a life sentence without parole. a lone juror would not budge after six hours of deliberation. outraged family members cried and hugged one another after the

4:19 am
her question. we'll get to you clarify. listen to this. >> you favor a rape and incest exception to abortion ban. cardinal timothy dolan of new york said yesterday those exceptions are preposterous. they discriminate against an entire class of human beings. if you believe life begins at conception as you say you do, how do you justify ending a life just because it begins violently through no fault of the baby? >> megyn, i'm not sure that's a correct assessment of my record. >> what she was referring to are certain senate bills that had those exceptions in them and many are wondering this morning are you evolving on your position on abortion? what's your response to that criticism? >> everybody supported those bills. every single pro-life senator, every single pro-life group supported that bill because the theory is that if we can save one life, we'll be in favor of doing it. >> senator, it's great to see you and congratulations on the debate performance. you only have 145 debates left

the contest because we weren't permanent residents of the state of indiana which is one of the rules of the contest. >> so it was in the fine print? >> yeah. i didn't think anything about it. i thought it was just a contest she got off twitter. and after i got the tattoo she was talking about the radio station and then she -- i hope it isn't one of those contests you have to be a resident, a part of the state and a resident to actually win the contest. >> what will you do when taylor swift comes to town and your girls want to see her? >> if they wanted to see her that bad i would do the same thing. nobody understands how big one direction and those front row tickets meant to the girls. >> have you heard anything yet? >> we haven't heard from anybody. to me, that's fine. i set out to get these girls front row tickets. we didn't get them. we still went to the concert. for me, if they never contact us, that's great.
4:27 am
i've made so many memories and they will never forget any of this. >> you're on the number one morning show in america so maybe one direction will be tuning in. so when your girls get tattoos, come back and we'll talk. >> okay, i will. >> have a great day. great to see you. roger, mckayla, maddie fraser. >> would you get a tattoo for your girls if they asked you. >> i have three daughters. no. but i'm impressed by roger's commitment. 27 minutes after the hour. here is what's coming up on the number one cable show in america, clayton morris. stop and frisk helped bring down crime in one of the biggest cities but now officers who do it could soon have to give out receipts. is this proposal ridiculous or a good idea? plus, you want to guarantee you will win a prize at the carnival. how to beat the experts. stay tuned. >> rick needs help. i sure had a lot on my mind when i got out of the hospital
4:28 am
after a dvt blood clot. what about my family? my li'l buddy? and what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital but i wondered if this was the right treatment for me. then my doctor told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots, but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily...
4:29 am
and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if it's right for you. pwhat've we got? 5. bp 64/40 sterilize sites. multiple foreign objects in the body. tweezers. (buzz!) (buzz!) if you're the guy from the operation game, you get operated on. it's what you do. (buzz!) if you want to save fifteen percent or more on car insurance, you switch to geico. it's what you do.

4:31 am
a recent complication with donor jeb bush referred to donald trump as a buffoon, a clown, and an a-hole.
4:32 am
then trump was like, that's right, i'm a total triple threat. don't forget it. >> that's actually what happened. >> that's true. >> did you pop your popcorn for the big debate? 24 million people tuned in to this. we're asking you why did you decide to tune in? we're sure you did. >> i wanted to learn more about the candidates. i was most impressed during the debate and learned the most about fiorina. >> kathy on facebook said to see my candidate trump. a trump/fiorina ticket sounds good with carson head of department of justice and ted cruz secretary of state. got it all figured out, kathy. >> dave on facebook writes, i watched to see how well governor christie could handle himself. >> fred on twitter road to determine who i feel are viable candidates and who are not.
4:33 am
>> chris christie, a lot of people thought had a good showing. he had some answers for his troubles in new jersey. people thought maybe his wind had been let out of the sail because of donald trump. is there room for two people with bomb baasting charisma. >> he was asked about new jersey's troubled fiscal condition. probably an understatement. the state is in trouble. he said, you should have seen it when i got there. >> more carnival fun in a moment. first to your saturday morning headlines. sparks flying on two packed airplanes. the first one here, a passenger onboard an american airlines flight recording the moment flames spit out of the engine after taking off from philadelphia heading to seattle. the plane carrying 133 passengers did land safely.
4:34 am
the flames caused by burning fuel. a similar burnoff is flamed for sparking a fireball. the flight was about to take off for cincinnati with 60 passengers onboard. fortunately no one was hurt. the fbi reportedly trying out a new strategy to defeat home grown terror by putting potential supporters into therapy rather than behind bars. officials say up to 10% of people in terrorism cases would be referred. the new tactic has sparked some debate with many fearing potentially deadly consequences if a suspect is misjudged. and new york city police could soon have to give people a receive if officers question them on the street. the recommendation coming as the department's stop and frisk p l policy is debuted.
4:35 am
officers would have to complete a form explaining why they stopped a person but didn't file charges. including suspicion of drugs or weapons. critics warn these cards discourage proactive policing and could lead to an increase in crime. and how rude! john stamos admitting he really did try to get the olsen twins fired from "full house." >> let's go, people. >> the actor who played uncle jesse says in the first season when the girls were babies it was difficult to get through an entire scene because they cried a lot. stamos confessing during a panel for his new show grandfather. the "full house" story airing the 22nd. and that's breaking news from the world of hollywood. now breaking news from the world. to our friend, rick. let's talk about the weather
4:36 am
map as you're waking up this morning. we had a lot going on including heat across much of the south. dallas, this is what you look like the next five days, just be prepared these next four days you're going to be flirting with records for the day. it's going to be very hot and you're around 5 to 7 degrees above average. when your average is that high, that much extra temperature does not feel good. across the northeast today, here is how it will play out. a few scattered showers across west virginia in to the appalachians. for the most part we have a pretty great day there. across the southeast, a few more showers around parts of florida. a couple heavy ones around the tampa area, unfortunately. looking better than it's been. obviously that heat is continuing. and one trouble spot, you see this rain we have this morning across nebraska and iowa. late they are afternoon that redevelops right along the missouri river there. we could be looking at the threat for a tornado or two, possibly some pretty significant ones, and out across areas of the west, we'll see that monsoonal activity continue. temperature wise not looking all that bad. all right. well, they are a staple of the
4:37 am
midway, classic carnival games that are always harder than they look. it turns out there is science behind them to help you win the prize. the technology editor of "popular science" magazine and also once worked at an amusement park. you are completely qualified. >> i didn't want to share that but, yeah, i can tell you a couple tricks. >> here is the strong man and you always see those strong men hitting this and they don't get the thing all the way to the top. >> a lot of carnival games are about deception, smoke and mirrors. this is a bait and switch. you have to look at what they're trying to get to you do and figure out what you're really supposed to do. it's a lot like golf. you don't go up to a golf ball and swing as hard as you can because you'll shank it left or right. so similarly you want to swing steadily, aim for the center of the platform and use the center of the mallett to drive the arm
4:38 am
up. not too bad. it was like 50% effort. easy, easy. >> so you have to hit it right on. >> right in the middle and that should send the weight all the way to the top. >> let's go over to the strong woman and her skee ball. >> this is probably my favorite, to be honest, and it's classic. a lot of people just roll straight for the highest number, right, and they don't use the bumper. so the easiest tip i can tell people is to use the bumper -- >> which one? >> either side, and aim for the top left or right. >> are you serious? the old traditional -- oh! >> you can just go straight for 100. you actually bump off the sides. you can typically -- >> do you roll it or throw it? >> i'll roll it to the side and typically you can bounce it off
4:39 am
the bumper. >> i think you need to show me. >> let me see if i still have my skills from my summer job. it's a little weak but after a couple times it gets easier and the nice thing is aiming for the 50s if you miss usually you'll score something else. they are all in the same area. you can end up scoring a lot of points. super easy and fun. >> i'm going to keep playing. i'll work on my tactic of the bumpers. i think clayton needs help with ping-pong. >> i was never any good at this. >> some people call it ring toss. you'll see beer bottles. they're both really similar games. the science is actually pretty simple. ultimately it's a lot like a game that college students play a lot, beer pong. sometimes there's not water in
4:40 am
these things. anyway, you're trying to get the vertical and also horizontal develop velocity correct. a nice arc and drop it straight into the bowl. and the reason for that is the ping-pong balls are pretty difficult to predict. so when they bounce off something -- >> there you go. we have to move to tucker. tucker is a fisherman. >> yes. this is the penguin fish fling. jade and i have been competing. she's been beating me. large mouthed bass. you hit it, you step on this. jade is a star. >> so this game is a game that makes it hard to judge. a lot of people don't use levers on a daily basis. >> that was nicely done. you're exerting force across this lever so you can launch the
4:41 am
load basically, what they call a load. you're essentially moving force from your body across-the-board. good work, jade. now we're moving over to the guns. we're pro-firearms. this one is a classic for a simple reason. there's a win earp every time. >> can we go? >> the concept is to shoot water right at the target. >> water pressure is not really high. >> there's not much more than that. >> make sure the gun is pointed directly at the target. anna, what's going on? the barrel of the gun is tilted. it's a little obtuse. that's another strategy you can use, too, absolutely.
4:42 am
you are a star. we want to thank you and fantasy world entertainment for this amazing carnival description. are republicans going to win the 2016 election? experts say they need to win the swing states. where do they stack up in ohio and florida? we have the numbers. plus, did you know your dog has a sixth sense? we'll explain how our pups can sniff out sickness better than any human or a machine in some cases as "fox and friends" carnival continues on the plaza.

4:47 am
>> you have so many people, more people watching the fox news debate with facebook this week than "monday night football." they want to find someone out of the field of choices that can win and win in the general election. in order to do that we're talking about the electoral college. we need 270 to win. that's really the magic number here. facing any republican choice is this blue wall, what's referred to as the states that have the last six times gone for the democrats. so in order to punch through that wall, it's important to understand that not all states are in play, just a few battleground states can make or break it. we start with governor scott walker being in one of those blue states if walker were to carry wisconsin. >> the last six psycycles that' gone to democrats. >> since 1992 that has traditionally gone to democratic candidate for president, so that's the challenge here. so this week's debate started in cleveland. looking at the cleveland issue, you have potentially 18 different electoral votes, very important. a home-court advantage as many
4:48 am
have seen with governor kasich there. past polls, we don't know what the future momentum will be like after this weekend. but past polls indicate that we have strong performance from governor kasich plus ten, plus six, sometimes as high as plus 11 in the last month or so. look for ohio. of course we know the debates end up in the convention for the rnc ends up back in cleveland. >> this is a general election but they need to get through the primaries first. these are the three key states. >> that's correct. >> virginia 13. a win for obama. >> right, right. >> what do you think of virginia for this general election? >> so two other states the size of ohio, florida is one and that's a state not being talked about as much but will be absolutely pivotal. that's why you have the bush and/or rubio. in past polls at least in the past month we've seen the real clear politics average with bush with the lead followed by trump
4:49 am
and rubio. we know that anyone that comes out of florida, republicans cannot win nationwide without a strong performance in florida. >> absolutely not. that's a long-standing fact. >> you mention the third state here -- >> the commonwealth of virginia. >> virginia is a different one. so many different dynamics in play. bush carrying that at 17.5% followed by walker, rubio, trump. but i think everyone is excited from thursday to see where this number, carly fiorina, will be moving up in the polls if her excitement continues to build. a lot of people don't know she's now virginia resident and moving to the east coast and has a high-tech background that could play a role in a business record. >> tech being a major industry in virginia, of course, from california. i didn't know that. travis brown, great to see you. appreciate it. one man who had a big night was governor mike huckabee. he joins us live with fresh reaction top of the hour. he'll tell you what it was

welcome back. science has once again confirmed something we already knew. your dog is much smarter than you think. experts now say dogs can actually predict when people are dying or grieving.
4:54 am
>> here to explain is dr. katy nelson. thanks for joining us. >> absolutely. >> thanks for bringing the cute pups up for adoption by the way. >> north shore animal league we have peanut. we have spike right here on my lap. and that's squeaky who is our little old man. >> squeaky is 10 years old. what a good dog. science has confirmed what dog owners have known for a long time which is dogs are deeply intuitive. >> absolutely. >> what do they know? >> i think they know more than we do in a lot of ways. you have to wonder where this comes from. is it because of their sense of smell? it's a good possibility we have biochemical changes whenever we're sick or dying. you have to think about these dogs that can predict diabetic seizures. their sense of smell is about 100,000 times better than ours. >> 100,000? whoa. >> the fbi police dogs can identify over 19,000 smells. so, i mean, we really have to understand that these guys are smelling so much more than we actually are. >> it's their nose, but isn't it
4:55 am
too our body language? if we're sad we're slumped over and mopey. >> absolutely. they're very intuitive whenever we're having a bad day, they know that it's time to just come and sit down next to you and give you that snuggle that you need. and, you know, we have to also like think about the dogs that are able to predict epileptic seizures. >> yes. >> we've heard these stories about dogs charging upstairs whenever someone is about to sfwo into a seizure and pushing someone down so they don't fall down the stairs. >> earthquakes, cancer. >> earthquakes, thunderstorms, there are actually some federally funded studies going on right now about dogs that are predicting cancer. and they're everywhere from 70% to 90% accurate on certain types of cancers. >> unbelievable. >> especially colon cancer is one they're studying right now as well. so, you know, if they're able to detect these things noninvasively, think about how great that would be for us as humans when we're getting sick. wouldn't you rather have a dog come in and sniff you rather than -- >> get a needle poking you. >> absolutely.
4:56 am
you're already so stressed any way to have the canine test, the lab test if you will. >> uh-oh. peanut down. got a squirmer. >> if we want to adopt these dogs, and we do, how? >> you contact the north shore animal league. i believe we've had their website up or we can put their website up. >> we'll put it on fox and friends for you. >> there it is. you can ask about these guys, peanut, spike and on the floor we have squeaky who is just an absolute doll. >> i think you need a lot of energy if you want to adopt peanut. >> peanut is about seven weeks old so she's full of it. totally full of it. >> doctor, great to it see you this morning. >> absolutely. puppies make everything better. 56 minutes after the hour, here's what's coming up on "fox and friends weekend," you saw him on the gop debate stage and now getting ready for a big day, governor mike huckabee joining us live next. and get married or go to jail? that's the choice a judge just offered this guy. what did he decide to do? stick around and we'll tell you
4:57 am
the ending to this story. >> ball and chain. >> what a choice. flonase allergy relief nasal spray
4:58 am
outperforms the #1 non-drowsy allergy pill. most allergy pills only control one inflammatory substance, flonase controls six. so you are greater than your allergies. flonase. six is greater than one. this changes everything. boy: once upon a time, there was a nice house that lived with a family. one day, it started to rain and rain. water got inside and ruined everybody's everythings. the house thought she let the family down. but the family just didn't think a flood could ever happen. the reality is, floods do happen. protect what matters. get flood insurance.

. hi friends. good morning. today is saturday the 8th of august 2015. i'm anna kooiman. we begin with a fox news alert. a u.s. base attacked, insurgents storm in and now three american soldiers are hurt. breaking details in moments. and the numbers are in. it was a record breaker, a record shatterer, the fox news debate on thursday night. the biggest event in the history of cable news. and in just moments mike huckabee, who was there on the stage, joins us with reaction and to tell us what it was like in cleveland. and what would you do if a judge gave you this choice, tie the knot or -- go to jail. true story. it just happened to this guy.
5:01 am
his choice. >> ball and chain. >> stick around to find out. ball and chain. "fox and friends" hour three starts right now. ♪ holy smokes. welcome in "fox and friends." eric out there eating carnival food. we set up a carnival on our plaza this morning. you can too do this in your backyard. >> snow cones. >> featured spiked snow cones. >> yeah, spiked with liquor. that was in the 6:00 hour. >> he was on the show for the 6:00 a.m. hour. >> we've got corn dogs and cotton candy, skee-ball. >> and the nausea machine you just saw there. >> i think tucker was eyeballing in the green room.
5:02 am
they were preparing the carnival food. did you see a bacon wrapped corn dog? >> no. oh, it is. good, we'll be there soon. we want to bring our old friend mike huckabee running for president, former governor of arkansas. and he was on the stage thursday night before 24 million people. governor, great to see you. i want to put up an instagram photo your daughter sarah took behind the scenes at the debate. all of you in an elevator. you're laughing. what was the joke? >> well, one of the things i think is funny, you have all the candidates in that elevator and you notice there was a guy that was actually running the elevator? one of us in the elevator could well run the country but they didn't trust any of us to push the buttons on the elevator. that was one thing i think you should take note of. the second thing, rand paul looks -- yeah, rand paul looks like he's all to himself and looks like he's not a happy camper to be there, but there's a back story i'm now able to share with you. >> oh. >> i ran into rand paul yesterday in south carolina.
5:03 am
rand had been sick all day. he felt awful. he had stomach cramps. he was literally just not sure he was even going to make it to the stage. so it wasn't that he was just being grumpy. what was going on is he was hoping that he didn't have one of those george bush japanese moments at the dinner and all of us in the elevator. >> well, that would have been a memorable moment. >> that's a petri dish in the elevator. >> yes, it would. >> debate, 24 million people tuned in to watch this debate just slightly less than the national championship game. this was the most-watched news event in cable news history, governor. why do you think so many americans dialed in to see what you guys had to say? >> well, i'd love to be able to tell you i think they were watching because they wanted to see what i was going to say. but i think the fact is america's in trouble. people know that. people across this country are being just punched in the gut by the economy.
5:04 am
we hear the unemployment numbers, they don't tell the real story. people are working two and three jobs and they can barely feed their families. they can barely make the rent payments. and as a result of that people are saying does anybody understand who we are? does anybody care who we are? does anybody have an answer to how to get this country back on track? and i think that the interest in the presidential campaign is largely about people who are desperate to see america get back on track again and be able to be the country that lifts people up and gives them a real chance for hope and higher ground. >> well, governor huckabee, wasn't just 24 million people that were watching fox news channel, watching you and nine others take the stage at 9:00 p.m., also social media was lighting up. here's the moment most tweeted about regarding you taking the stage. let's watch this clip. >> defense secretary ashton carter recently directed the military to prepare for a moment when it is welcoming transgender persons to serve openly. as commander in chief how would
5:05 am
you handle that? >> the military is not a social experiment. the purpose of the military is kill people and break things. it's not to transform the culture by trying out some ideas that some people think would make us a different country and more diverse. the purpose is to protect america. i'm not sure how paying for transgender surgery for soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines, makes our country safer. >> governor, was this your best moment? is this the one you're happy took fire and really caught wind? >> well, i really would love to spend more time talking about things like why i support the consumption tax called a fair tax. even my position on the issue in iran and the horrible iranian deal. but, you know, you answer the questions you're dealt. and we don't get to pick those. but i do feel very passionate that we have turned our military into something more of a social experiment. we have soldier who is are going to repeated deployments, we have
5:06 am
the smallest prepared military since before world war ii. i mentioned the other night the last time we put a b-52 in service was 1962. there are people flying those airplanes whose grandfathers flew those airplanes. we have veterans who come back from deployment and they wait months to get help. we need to be focusing on people who lost their leg, not people who want to change their gender. and that's why i feel very strong that there's a whole lot of issues about our military that need to be addressed far more urgently than transgender issues. >> so, governor, i wanted to get your take on that iran deal. the president defending it pretty vigorously, gave a speech on it yesterday. most democrats have coalesced around him. chuck schumer has broken ranks and says he will oppose the iran deal. why do you think he has broken from his party? do you think it will be enough to scuttle the deal? >> well, there's no one who is a more effective leader among the democrats in the senate than
5:07 am
chuck schumer. harry reid may have the title -- >> unfortunately we're having difficulty with governor huckabee's satellite. we'll see if we can get him back in a moment. >> it is a pretty amazing moment though. chuck schumer not just a democrat, but mr. democrat, is m coing out against this signature policy of the president. it's not a small thing. >> i know that the governor we're going to try to get the governor back here. he wants to talk more about the iran deal. we'll see if we can make that happen. >> we'll get to this in the meantime starting with fox news alert. we've learned an american has been killed in an overnight attack on a u.s. special ops base in after dpan stghanistaaf. two other americans are injured. eight afghan soldiers and one nato service member also died. the attack coming after a deadly wave of bombings across the city. and devastating and deadly typhoon slams taiwan killing at least six and leaving dozens more hurt. it made landfall overnight knocking out power to more than 3 million homes.
5:08 am
with pounding rains and 150-mile-an-hour winds at least four people are missing, one an 8-year-old girl swept out to sea. some streets in taipei left under four feet of water and strewn with falling debris. the typhoon now barrelling toward china where more than 158,000 people have already evacuated. he shot 12 people dead, but the colorado movie theater shooter's life will be spared. in a surprising move the jury rejected the death penalty for james holmes and instead gave him a life sentence without parole. a lone juror would not budge after six hours of deliberation. outraged family members cried and hugged one another after the verdict was read. >> and the gaping void, the gaping wound that we have with the loss of our granddaughter has been replaced with a new abscess of him living.
5:09 am
>> holmes' official sentencing is in two weeks. and get married or go to jail? that was the choice a texas judge gave this 20-year-old. he was in court for punching his girlfriend's ex. when judge randall rogers asked is she worth it, he said yes. the judge then gave him a choice, marry elizabeth plus write out bible verses within 30 days, or spend 15 days in prison. so they went to the courthouse and tied the knot. >> what would have happened had i said no? said, you know, judge, we would like to get married on our own terms. >> we weren't going to be able to have the wedding we wanted. it was going to be kind of pieced together. >> the couple plans to save up for a bigger wedding in the future. well, we lost our satellite with the governor. and we were asking him about the iran deal. chuck schumer breaking ranks from democrats and showing his opposition to the iran nuclear deal. governor, you were mid-sentence
5:10 am
before the stars misaligned for a moment. >> well, what i was saying is that chuck schumer is really the intellectual leader of the democrats in the senate, not so much harry reid though he holds the title. this is very significant. and even though i would say i probably disagree with chuck schumer on most things, i want to commend him on this because he did this in the face of extraordinary pressure and opposition. and i believe he did it because chuck schumer has consistently been a true friend to israel. and he's been a true friend to peace in the middle east. he knows this is a bad deal. this is an example of statesmanship, partisanship. i think we all owe chuck schumer a really sincere round of applause for standing up and putting america first, putting peace first and saying no to the iranian deal. >> so is this going to be enough? are you going to see other democrats, there have been a couple others, but will you see more in the senate break with the president on this question? >> i think you will. because chuck schumer has the
5:11 am
gravita is to bring others with him. there were others who expressed misgivings or maybe against it, but none who have the position that chuck schumer does or the respect that he holds among the people in the senate who look to him as a person to follow. so i think this is huge and very significant. and look for an enormous amount of pressure against him. and if the white house goes and tries to discredit him, it shows how truly desperate they have become. and they have become that. >> governor, a lot of the gop presidential contenders have gone south, left the buckeye state. you're in atlanta quickly before you go. what are you doing there? >> well, today is the day for the red state gathering. i think almost all the candidates are going to be here today. each making a pitch answering some questions. so it will be quite a big con fab. we're making one more pitch to get the message out to voters and explain to them how we can get america where it needs to be. >> governor huckabee joining us live from atlanta. we appreciate you joining us. >> good luck, governor.

the race in 2016 taking center stage for some heated policy debates. but the care of our nation's veterans went almost untouched in thursday's debate until the very end. >> i think god has blessed us. he's blessed us with young men and women willing to risk their lives and sometimes die in uniform. when i'm president of the united states, we're going to have a v.a. that cares more about our veterans than the bureaucrats who work at the v.a. >> so should veterans questions be more center stage in this election? joining us now is fox news contributor ceo of the national center for policy analysis and of course a veteran lieutenant colonel alan west. colonel, great to see you this morning. you said you were distressed these questions didn't come up until marco rubio raised them at the end of the debate. >> yeah, it was very disconcerting for me, tucker, because it seemed as if the veterans issue was almost an afterthought. when you think about it, we are not as a nation able to care about those who are willing to give the last full measure of devotion, those who stand on
5:17 am
freedom's ramparts who return back to this nation where they've been willing to make that commitment and we only relegated to a few minutes of a sound bite in this major debate. that is a sad indictment on our culture and what we believe is our priority issue. and i speak very clearly. my father was a disabled american veteran from world war ii. he worked in the veterans administration hospital in atlanta, georgia. and sadly it was in that v.a. hospital where he lost his life. but this is a very important issue for me. >> so what specifically would you like to see the republican candidates and the democratic candidates take up on veterans issues? >> well, i think most importantly when we talk about this choice act, which president obama signed into law and now they want to try to defund the choice act. you know, it's very interesting to me that they don't want to defund planned parenthood but they want to defund the choice act enabling our veterans to be able to go to any medical center, to any clinic that is available to them. that once again shows you something is awry with this
5:18 am
administration and with this issue. and marco rubio did bring up a very important fact, only one person has been fired from the veterans administration after this very heinous occurrence that we learned about about veterans dying on waiting lists. >> nobody ever gets fired from federal service, as you know. so there just aren't that many veterans running because a pretty small percentage of americans now serve and the greatest generation no long ner politics really. on the democratic side, jim webb, a legitimate war hero from the vietnam war is running. we're interviewing him tomorrow on the show. what do you make of webb's candidacy? >> well, i think jim webb is probably running in the wrong party. if he was running in the republican party he'd have more of a platform, more of a voice. he is a former marine infantry officer, former secretary of the navy, senator from virginia. and so i think when you look at that type of resume, he does not fit with the liberal progressive mantra of today's democrat party. but we need to have more men and women who want to be commander

5:25 am
i want to see events that are going to feature the women behind the bucs that are in the staff that are part of the game. so i don't think i'm fully offended. it's great that there's progress towards engaging women, but you need more continent. >> maybe this is the start. more women will learn more of the rules and be on the sidelines, maybe coaching the teams. who knows. we have a comment about this on one side of it. this is offensive and absurd, what kind of 1950s hostess charm school rock did this crawl out from under. you say, joanne? >> there's nothing wrong with being a hostess. i love having fun dishes to serve during a football game. if you don't like it, you don't have to cook it. >> so many women if their husbands are watching these games, they get to be long. if you can't beat them, join them. understand the rules and it could be a good thing. >> absolutely. i don't want to be business siz cooking. i want to sit there and study the game and learn the game and be part of the excitement. so i think to really celebrate
5:26 am
inclusion and diversity, you need to make the whole game friendly to women, not just the women corner for women to enjoy. >> and you have a unique perspective because of your husband. >> i do. i am married to a former buc, ironically. i was excited when i saw this story coming up. he feels the same way. he feels let's welcome women into the core of the game, not to the pink box of the game. >> kickoff is in september. who knows maybe more nfl teams will follow suit. more women will get involved. ladies, thank you. >> thank you. 26 minutes after the hour, here's what's coming up on the program. he's the third bush to run for the white house. so what did jeb's brother think about his debate performance? reaction from george on jeb ahead. plus, everybody loves a good hot dog with french fries, but how about blending them into one at your carnival favorites with a twist. hope you woke up hungry. ♪

which candidates came out on top? joining us new york assemblyman and marine corps veteran of operation iraqi freedom. charles payne and carrie sheffield. welcome all of you. nice to see you this morning. here's one example of the economy. here's scott walker on the economy. take a listen to scott. >> i think most of us in america understand that people, not the government, creates jobs. and one of the best things we can do is get the government out of the way, repeal obamacare, reign-in all of the out of control regulations, put in place all the above energy policy, get people the education and skills they need to succeed and lower the tax rate and reform the tax code. that's what i'll do as president just like i did in wisconsin. >> so there was scott walker on the economy. who did you guys think had the biggest night on the economy? we got some paddles here. it's like go fish. >> walker, kasich. >> walker, kasich, rub yoiorubi
5:45 am
christie. charles, what do you think that? >> they do run governments and budgets. i think that's really important. they've come from the midwest, particularly kasich in a rust belt state, it's a swing state but also one of the states that's the epitome of the challenges of america. the reason he didn't come in first for me was his medicaid answer. while it has a general sympathetic tone you normally don't get maybe compassionate, conservatism, i worry when you start to say, hey, it's okay to have overrun bloated policy because we want to help people. you might apply that to other parts of the economy. walker of course we know he's done an amazing job against stiff opposition in his state. so neck and neck. >> all right. why rubio and christie on the economy? >> i liked what rubio said. he had a question from someone on youtube who asked about how can you save small business. his answer was to repeal dodd frank, i completely agree. dodd frank has been terrible for small banking and for small business. so kudos to rubio on that.
5:46 am
for christie i liked what he was talking about entitlement reforming, social security. he went on it with huckabee a little bit, but he defeated huckabee in my opinion. >> all right. then 5:00 p.m. hour you picked carly fiorina. she was lighting up social media after her performance in the 5:00 p.m. hour. >> she was. someone who was a ceo of one of the largest companies in the world, she could have been removed from sort of the small business family business, but she highlighted that. if you look at her bio, you understand why. she started out as a secretary in a little real estate firm. so she's been from the ultimate small local business all the way to the highest strata of business. so she gets it. >> what about the losers on the economy, guys? grab your paddles. who do you think dropped the ball on the economy? >> i'm going to borrow her paddle. >> i'm going to agree. >> why mike huckabee? >> i give mike huckabee credit for wanting to talk about social security just as chris christie came out with this plan i think is nuts but didn't talk about it during the debate, it's the third role of american politics. the idea somehow a consumption
5:47 am
tax is a good reason not to have social security reform is crazy. we must tackle this. because if we do want anything out there for future generations, we have to clean it up now. >> let's talk about mike huckabee more answering one question about the united states military and our readiness. take a listen to him. >> the military is not a social experiment. the purpose of the military is kill people and break things. it's not to transform the culture by trying out some ideas that some people think would make us a different country and more diverse. the purpose is to protect america. i'm not sure how paying for transgender surgery for soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines, makes our country safer. >> all right. grab your paddles. who do you think won on the military? that was governor huckabee there. you have to borrow some paddles. it's like a game of go-fish over there. >> i loved what huckabee said, but carson i liked what he had to say. >> start with the military.
5:48 am
>> governor huckabee hit exactly on what he should have hit on. the military is there for nothing other than that to take hills, protect our interests, be a good ally and protect our allies when necessary and all used for stuff that the is a distraction. we're reducing the size of our military at the same time we're giving them all these other things, social agenda items, to incorporate. and they're losing focus of the mission protect the country. >> and scott walker here. >> i think walker had perhaps one of the best lines of the night when he was talking about the fact that the russians probably know more about hillary clinton's e-mail than we do. and so that speaks to sort of broader issues i think of national security, surveillance and military readiness. so i thought it was a very strong point for him. >> overall ben carson. >> what we do is our business. he's absolutely right. these politically correct wars are nuts. i'm reading a book right now about war 101, more soldiers were lost in an hour than we lose in modern day fighting
5:49 am
because of public opinion. if we don't allow our soldiers to fight and we don't allow our soldiers to interrogate the enemy, then we should stop going to war. >> overall who won the night for you? all right. carly fiorina, overall, wow. >> carly made it from the 5:00 debate and there was video of her talking at the 5:00 debate in frooprimetime debate. >> rubio. >> i have both of them, i mean, if i had to pick. but i think rubio did a great job of saying what he stood for. i think carly is great about what she stands against. and i think maybe they could be a great ticket. >> impressive. carson, cruz, rubio, but overall hands down easily carly won. >> wow. fascinating. what do you feel about this at home? e-mail us this morning friends@foxnews.com. thanks to all of you guys. coming up, first, the feds wanted to defeat terrorists by giving them jobs. now the new plan is to send them to counselling. you won't believe this.

hey, friends. seven minutes before top of the hour. big news in entertainment news as one of the leading lady ties the knot just as an a-list divorce takes a traum turn with allegations of an affair surfacing. here is david caplan. thanks for being with us on "fox & friends weekend." >> good morning. >> tell us about the surprise nuptials between jennifer aniston and justin thorough. >> jennifer and justin were married wednesday at their home in los angeles in bel air. there were about 70 guests.
5:54 am
we saw some "friend" along, lisa kudrow and courtney cox. courtney was the maid of honor. chelsea handler was there, terry richardson shot the couple, photographer, he was there. emily blunt, howard stern. so there was a long list of people. >> star studded of course without a doubt. but it was a surprise, right? everybody thought they were just coming to justin's birthday party. >> yes. some guests apparently did know a few months in advance, but a lot of people didn't, which of course is very common in hollywood circles. they don't like to announce to the guests. but once you were there, there was a wing. there was a big dance floor. people were dancing. the wedding cake was incredible. keeping with the sense of humor, the two toppers on top of the cake were cartoon figures of them. it sort of had that very cute sort of, you know, genre to it and it went till 3:30 in the morning. courtney cox was the last to
5:55 am
leave. she was there into the wee hours of the morning. >> posh but a lot of fun. we have to get to this next story and allegations of an affair on the end of ben affleck in this divorce that's coming. >> yes. a source tems me that ben affleck did, indeed, have an affair with his nanny, allegedly. right now ben affleck is in georgia where his estranged wife, jennifer garner, is shooting. they're keeping it together for the children, but the nanny is enjoying the spotlight. she's being photographed by paparazzi. but she hasn't commented about the affair and jennifer garner hasn't come out defending anyone either. ben affleck is denying this affair. but it's over and it's heartbreaking for fans because they thought ben was the ultimate good guy. sorry. >> been together like ten years. come on. so awful. jennifer garner apparently initially said ben affleck could stay in the house or the guest house or something. is that going to continue?
5:56 am
>> that likely won't continue. they are in contact because of their kid, but she's in georgia, she is not happy about the cheating because apparently when they were on vacation in the bahamas, the nanny was with them, jennifer garner left back to go to the states, the nanny stayed in the bahamas with ben. connect the dots. i'm sorry, hopeless romantics. >> yes or no, will this affect ben affleck's career? >> no. he's had so many more roled offered to him the past couple weeks. a good pr spin. but no. people love him. people have done worse. >> david, thanks for the celebrity gossip this morning. >> all right. thanks, ana. 56 minutes after the hour. analysts say this man won the first gop debate. so what sets marco rubio apart from the rest of the pack? we ask him next hour. plus, netflix now offering new parents unlimited leave with full pay. but is there a downside to that?
5:57 am
could that actually cause chaos in the workplace?

6:02 am
live in. >> we have a carnival on the plaza this morning. i can't handle the spinning rides, the nausea machine. >> you have to spot like a ballerina, pick a spot on a building like 6th or 48th and just watch it. >> that works for like five revolutions. rick is getting on that later. first we want to get to the big news in american politics and that was the first debate of this presidential season hosted on fox as you doubtless know. it was thursday. it was the single biggest event ever in cable news. about 24 million people tuned in thursday night. >> let's naught in perspective. game seven of the world series between the kansas city royals and the san francisco giants last year, 23 million. so this debate beat a world series game seven. >> crushed jon stewart's "daily show" finale ratings by 20 million viewers. you know who wasn't watching? hillary clinton snapping selfies with kanye west and kim kardashian. maybe the democrats started paying attention to their
6:03 am
competition because we likely will have some very motivated voters heading to the polls. >> no question about that. mike huckabee was there. he was one of the ten on the stage. he was just joining us a minute ago. we asked him, why do you think so many people watched? here's his view. >> america's in trouble. people know that. people across this country are being just punched in the gut by the economy. as a result of that, people are saying does anybody understand who we are? does anybody care who we are? does anybody have an answer to how tho to get this country back on track? i think the interest in the presidential campaign is largely about people who are desperate to see america get back on track again and be able to be the country that lifts people up and gives them a real chance for hope and higher ground. >> we asked for your responses and why did you watch the debate the other night, what were you most interested in learning about the candidates. you can go to our facebook page and add your comments there. >> i think huckabee is on to something. the economy really is a
6:04 am
disaster. if you're not in malibu or georgetown, if you ear in the great in between in this country, you see shuttered stores, people out of work on disabout, massive doctoring problems. >> our most recent fox news poll, 40%, seems low given the fact it is on most people's minds. >> it depends exactly how you define it. ill think polls get with great precision all the time to people's concerns. there's no question in my mind the republican primary voters especially think the country is op this wrong track and that is not even profound enough. they are terrified that the country is going down the tubes. they really are afraid. i think they have every good reason to be. the obvious point, this was great television. >> it was great at 5:00 p.m. as well. carly fiorina was the breakout star in the fist debate by many accounts. she told greta van susteren last night she's seeing a bump in her online campaign funding. >> you get google trends after
6:05 am
somebody has a big bump like that. she did really well then google search results exploded for her. i'm curious, does that result in increased fund raying, increased donations to her campaign, increased followers. we don't yet know exactly whether that translates yet. it will be interesting to watch. >> they did a focus group of this of sorts on her program the other night, and here's what people she asked thought of carly fiorina. watch. >> after watching her, i came up that she's a combination of golda meir, margaret thatcher and al capone. i'd vote for her in a minute. >> she was a business woman and now has this great foreign policy presentation last night. she's the total package. and foreign policy. >> precision of a surgeon. >> she instills confidence in you. when i listened to her talk, i was, like, yes, i believe in you! she has a plan. she laid it all out. >> day one, day two. we know exactly what she wants to do and now we believe in her. >> they're impressed by carly
6:06 am
fiorina. i am too. she is a great talker. i do think, though, that her business background will be something that as she becomes more and more main a mainstream candidate, probably one of the leading candidates i would guess, people will take a close look. it will be interesting to see how she responds to the inevitable attacks. >> look at mitt romney as a roadmap as to what attacks she could see if she starts to be on top. but one thing is a questionwhet or because she's a woman maybe she should sit back and open herself up to a potential vp role. that question was being floated about whether or not she should be a vice president. is that sexist? we had a debate about this earlier on "fox & friends." listen. >> more sexist than geraldine ferraro being the vice presidential candidate for walter mondale. no one said that was sexist. you choose the best person. >> but she's right now a presidential hopeful. they're saying she would make a
6:07 am
great vp. i think she would make a great president. poverty knows no gender, no color, and i think that anybody on the gop side would be better than hillary. >> mm. that's a point many can agree on. would carly fiorina be as closely watched as she is today if she were a man? maybe so. actually being a woman has helped her so far. maybe not. i don't know. >> governor perry was on the same stage with her. governor of a huge state and didn't make it into that 9:00 p.m. she's getting the headlines this morning. >> she didn't have to share the stage with donald trump either. people are saying she should have been on the 9:00 p.m. stage but she was talked about so much we got to the 9:00 p.m. debate and then we're still talking about her right now so the name recognition was key for her on thursday night. now people know who carly fiorina is and what she stands for. very often vice presidential candidates end up being the attack dogs and she's been
6:08 am
hitting hillary clinton hard. >> if you're one of the 8 million people in america that missed the debate thursday night, you can watch it again on the fox bitz channel 8:00 p.m. tonight. stay tuned tonight. >> like your favorite movie. watch it over and over again. on to other stories making headlines on your saturday. this "fox news alert," we have just learned an american has been killed in afterovernight attack on a u.s. special ops base in afghanistan. at least two other americans are injured, four militants trying to storm the kabul base were killed. eight afghan soldiers and one native service member also died. the attack coming after a wave of bombings killed dozens across the city. also breaking overnight, three scares on pack airplanes all within just hours. pilots of a delta flight flying blind after the windshield cracked during a hailstorm in colorado overnight. the nose also getting damaged. the flight heading to salt lake city from boston made an emergency landing in denver. no one was hurt. two hours earlier, a passenger on board an american airlines flight from philly to seattle recorded the moment the flames
6:09 am
spit out of the engine. the flames caused by burning fuel. the plane did land safely. and burning fuel also sparked a fireball on sky west on a plane -- sky west plane on the tarmac in nashville. the flight was minutes from taking off for cincinnati. no one was hurt. counseling instead of handcuffs? the fbi reportedly trying out a new strategy to defeat homegrown terror by putting potential isis supporters into therapy rather than behind bars. officials say up to 10% of people under investigation in terrorism cases would be referred. the new tactic has sparked some debate with many fear pog trenchly deadly consequences if a suspect is sent to counseling instead of arrested. and just calm it a highway robbery. >> fly ball lifted down the left-field line towards the corner. he gets it! >> tampa bay rays outfielder grady sizemore makes a leaping catch over the wall, snatching a

game-tying home run. sizemore hit a home run of his own during the game. but the mets came back to win 4-3. those are your headlines. how are the mets doing? >> yeah, the mets. taking hockey by storm. >> doing really well. >> rick reichmuth standing by with a report from the natural world. there he is. >> everybody's pretty much sick on cotton candy except for one healthy young woman. happy 13th birthday. where were you from? >> wilmington, north carolina. >> your name? >> emma. >> is this what you wanted for your 13th birthday? >> yes. >> enjoy. take a look at the weather maps. heat across parts of the south. it's already warm, 82 in dallas waking up, 80 in memphis and it will get a lot hotter. a lot of the east coast will be looking nice. quite a bit of rain this week drying out across the mid-atlantic, a few showers across florida but nothing like you've seen. rain moving in across parts of missouri. wait till later this afternoon. we'll see it clear out and then
6:11 am
those storms will fire again and potentially a few tornadoes today around the missouri river valley so be careful there. out across the west, we'll see more afternoon storms firing across parts of the four corners. the big story for much of the weekend and this coming week is that heat across parts of the south. 104 tomorrow in dallas, 102 in little rock. same goes for monday into tuesday. and finally maybe by wednesday a slight break, dallas you'll still be warm. the heat is on. all right, guys. lay off the cotten the candy, kids. >> thanks, rick. coming up, he is being called one of the big winners in the gop debate. >> if i'm our nominee, how is hillary clinton going to lecture me about living paycheck to paycheck? i was ratzed paycheck to paycheck. >> how does marco rubio think he stacks up against hillary clinton? he joins us next. and is this the best first chance ever? the couple who is starting their marriage off with all the right moves in this viral video. ♪

republican white house hopefuls hitting the stage thursday night in the first of nine debates in the election season hoping to set themselves apart from each other and the leading candidate for the nomination. >> if i'm our nominee, how is hillary clinton going to lecture me about living paycheck to paycheck? i was raised living paycheck to paycheck. how is she going to lecture me about student loans? i owed over $100,000 just four years ago. if i'm our nominee, we will be the party of the future. >> $100,000 in debt. marco rubio says he's the future of the republican party. did he say enough to convince viewers he has the experience to
6:16 am
be commander in chief? let's ask him. did you feel you had a strong performance and anything you would have improved the other night? >> i thought i did the best i could. obviously if that's good enough or not we'll find out months from now. >> we played your response about hillary clinton and living paycheck to paycheck and being in debt as you were. that got a big applause line. you're aware of the criticism of congress and the low approval rating that congress has and many americans in fox news polls think congress is out of touch with mainstream america. their own paychecks. as a senator, how do you square the two, both talking about your own struggles living paycheck to paycheck and also being a united states senator? >> right. well, i've only been in washington now for four years and i think being there makes me even more frustrated. i share those frustrations people have. i got elected to go to washington and make a difference and it's been so hard. for four years it was hard because harry reed ran the senate and nothing was
6:17 am
happening. now we're trying to make progress but we can't because we have a president standing in the way. that's why i decided to run for president. >> immigration a big topic of the debate on thursday night. senator ted cruz came out swinging against you and other candidates on the stage. take a listen to him and we'll get you to respond. >> a majority of the candidates on this stage have supported amnesty. i have never supported amnesty. >> pointing basically to you in that exchange. what's your response? >> well, amnesty is what we have now. i mean, today, if you sneak into this country illegally, no one's going to find you or deport you. and if they deport you, you come back in as this animal in california was able to come in five separate times and ultimately wondered that wonderful young lady in san francisco. we have to address it. if we do nothing, what we'll get stuck with is de facto amnesty, which is what we have today. >> tlhere's been kricriticism a your position on abortion.
6:18 am
we'll get you to clarify. listen to this. >> you favor a rape and incest exception to abortion bans. cardinal timothy dolan of new york just say yesterday exceptions are preposterous, they discriminate against an entire class of human beings. if you believe that life begins at conception, how do you justify ending a life just because it begins violently through no fault of the baby? >> megyn, first of all, i'm not sure that's a correct assessment of my record. >> i think, senator, what she was referring to are certain senate bills you supported that had those exceptions in them and many are wondering this morning are you evolving on your position on abortion. what's your response to that criticism? >> no, but everybody supported those bills. every single pro-life senator, every single pro-life group supported that bill because the theory is if we can save life we'll be in favor of doing it. >> nor, great to see you this morning. congratulations on the debate performance. social media exploded in your favor. you only have 145 debates left until the election.

24 million. that's how many tuned into the first republican debate that aired on fox news thursday night. it was the single most watched cable news program in the history of cable news. it was clearly fascinating to people. why is is question. joining us now, a psychologist. >> thanks. >> we've had a lot of debate. >> for having me. >> fox hosts a lot of them. always do a good job. this one outrated the next highest rating, which was in 2012, by a factor of many. that was 7.6 million. this was 24 million. what's the difference? >> first of all, this is more sthan a political story, more than a news issue, tights entire media. this 24 million number transforms marquee entertainment shows. david letterman's farewell show
6:45 am
had 13 million. big sports shows, it outdid the winter olympics. it's a major story. i think there's multiple factors. i think the first is one you alluded to in an earlier segment. we're a celebrity-driven society and there's really never been a celebrity like donald trump participating in this process. this is someone that was on the air various iterations of t s " apprentice" for 14 seasons. the current "celebrity apprentice" had 24 million or more. the name recognition of donald trump, the ability to draw people, is incredible. actually, the nine other participants gained tremendously from this huge audience and in part, in great part, they have donald trump to thank for that. i think there's another key factor, though.
6:46 am
i think there's incredible anxiety and angst in the population. there's a need for new leadership. donald trump's celebrity image is associated with leadership. and people are insecure. they're insecure about the economy, the borders, the nation, and they're seeking ideas that will bring forth this notion of new security and -- >> i believe that completely. right. they're worried enough to be more open minded than they've ever been. donald trump is famous, but so is oprah and i doubt she would get 24 million if she were in the debate. with trump, there's this feeling you don't know what he's going to say. something thrilling about that, whether you agree or not. >> no, no, i agree with the thrill factor and also think he drew fans, foes, curiosity seekers, a whole confluence of audience.
6:47 am
this is a wonderful bless, a great thing. by the way, there's millions of people who are young people, millennials who were drawn to this debate. not all are policy wonks. this is going to engage people in the political process that normally would don't so. and so this is a fantastic thing. it's a win for america, a win for fox, it's a win for the republican party. i see it as wonderful. also fox did kind of a brilliant thing breaking up the cliffs into two prongs a and we had a cliffhanger effect, not knowing who would be in it until the last minute. john kasich we didn't know until the last moment and look at what he did. >> james thurston joining us live. thanks to see you. >> thanks for having me, tucker. next up on the program, the carnival of fun continue tong plaza. one of us is about to ride the sandstorm. who will it be and will that person survive without throwing up? you'll have to stay tuned to find out. ♪
