he's loving it. >> he tweeted out how come those skinny people drink diet coke. >> the report says hillary clinton broke the rules by using her private email for public business, remember that? but don't ask the state department about it. >> how do you know that? because the report does not say that none of them were successful. >> i apologize. actually. i misspoke. >> yeah. the question was how do you know any of the hacks didn't work, if they didn't get information? he didn't really know. believe me. they don't want this fight but hillary clinton brought him into this fight. really? are we buying that? despite everything we told you, your mornings are better with your friends. ♪ ♪
♪ ♪ can you take it's fleet week in new york city? and ainsley earhardt just got goose bumps. >> i'm serious. so proud to be an american. we really remember you this weekend and isn't it a beautiful song, the country music? it embodies everything our country stands for. >> right now, it's full of marines and soldiers. we're going to have a tug-of-war here in a couple of hours. >> they are pulling the rope for
a big prize which is breakfast at dave's. >> that is famous dave's ribs. those ribs were sectioned and quartered. they were treated -- >> treated? marion -- you mean marinated. >> being treated. >> the friday before memorial, the unofficial start to summer and it is the first all american concert series, performance brought to you by expedia today. >> you are pulling out the seersucker. you know it's time for summer. >> i pull it out once or twice a year. ladies and gentlemen, it's matlock. >> don't you do the cane and the
hat? >> i would, but the cane and the hat are being treated. >> all right, guys. big night yesterday for donald trump. he earned enough delegates to seal up that gop nomination. >> his multimillion dollar challenge to debate bernie sanders getting a lot of attention this morning. >> joining us now, john roberts. it's almost over! >> more frequent flyer miles than sleep. it's not over until it's over, brian. we still got a couple weeks ago. donald trump has got over 1237. it's a milestone for him and with the five states that are voting june 7th. he could easily get 1,500. donald trump celebrating a little bit yesterday. sending out this photo, flying
around in his jet eating mcdonald's. >> when i flew from him -- with him from missouri to chicago, he was eating wendy's. making up a different man now. clinching the nomination. a couple rallies yesterday. billings, montana, bismarck, north dakota. in such a good mood that he turned what barack obama said about him yesterday into a positive yesterday at a press conference. i asked him about his reaction by the g7 summit yesterday. >> when you rattle someone, that's good. because many of the world, as you know, many of the countries in our world, beautiful world, have been absolutely abusing us and taking advantage of us. so if they are rattled in a friendly way, we're going to have great relationships with these countries, but if they are
rattled in a friendly way, that's a good thing. >> good thing for the world leaders to be rattled. not thinking that the status quo is going to continue if donald trump becomes president, but as he said in a friendly way and donald trump doubling down on his offer of a debate with bernie sanders. say, you know, if they could find a way to put together a bunch of money for a women's charity, they would go ahead and do it. bernie sanders excited about the prospect too. listen to what they said yesterday. >> i would love to debate him, but i would want money put up for charity. if we could $10 to $15,000. >> i'm going to be very excited about it. we'll rent out the largest stadium you have here in california. >> a lot of people thinking that the real looser -- loser in a
donald trump, bernie sanders debate would be hillary clinton on the sidelines. guys, you are killing me with your treated ribs here. >> nothing says memorial day weekend thriek a -- like a treated rib. >> wait a second, is he mocking me? >> i believe so. speaking of mocking, donald trump celebrated yesterday by putting out a video after he achieved the 1237 number of delegates in his column to get the nomination on the first ballot and he mocked all of the news pundits who said donald trump is never going to make it. >> i don't think it's likely that donald trump is going to be the nominee. he's not going to be the nominee. he's not going to be the nominee, chuck. donald trump who is not going to be the nominee. donald trump is not going to be the nominee.
he might get to 1237, realistically, i wouldn't bet a dollar on it. >> he may be leading the republican ticket. >> they said he would never be the nominee. of course, now they say he would never be president. do you think? >> many people might wonder -- a lot of people are saying how did he get over the top 1237, yesterday, when there wasn't a primary. what happened in north dakota, there were 28 unbound delegates, they decided to put their support in the ring for donald trump, when that happens, he reached the magic number. >> it was a fait accompli. most people thought it would be june pth. this has set a new record for republican turn-out. that is something to take note of, where we pivot to the general where it's going to be
different and harder. the first thing hillary clinton has to do is get rid of bernie sanders. now she has to deal with her email problem. an inspector general concluded that she was way out of bounds and out of line when she used her private server for state department work and her changes and explanations are continuing to evolve. remember at first she set up the server because she didn't want to carry two devices. she didn't want government email to be put in with her personal email. now she's saying -- i was never comfortable using a computer, so she wasn't comfortable using a desktop email, only comfortable with blackberry computers. >> meanwhileny a deposition for judicial watch, it was revealed yesterday that apparently hillary clinton had a standalone computer in her office that did not have a password on it. that opens you up to hacking.
mark tuner was asked about the i.g. report that says there were a couple of hack attacks on it. were they successful? listen to this exchange. >> i do know there were hack attempts but none of them were successful. >> how do you know that none of them were successful? >> i would have to refer -- >> how do you know that? because the report does not say that none of them were successful. >> i apologize. actually. i misspoke. but i will say -- but i would just refer you to secretary clinton's team for questions about the security of her system. >> wow. that long pause, he said well the report doesn't say that, he's thinking oh, my gosh, what do i say? he's right. he says i apologize. i misspoke. >> remember, she did not have a password on her computer. >> let me tell you, this is the thing, it could be a very big problem, this email scandal. it is a very big problem because there is a chance that another country could have hacked into our government records and find
out what our secrets are and what we're doing and people lives are at stake here and we don't know that it wasn't hacked. gucifer said it was hacked. meanwhile, heather nauert, you have other news to share with us. >> i do. happy friday. steve, i love the seersucker. just moments ago, president obama first sitting u.s. president to visit hiroshima since world war ii. the president laying a wreath, honoring those killed in the bombing that ended the war. he said the world would be better without nuclear weapons, but before that, president obama dodged a question about how hillary clinton's email scandal and her high-paid speeches. listen. >> you know what, i take it back. i'm not taking that question. we're in japan, don't we have something in asia we want to talk about? i'll be talking about this in washington the whole time.
look, i've already said a lot about those issues. i think those are better directed to the campaign. >> there you go. well the president winding up that trip and he is now headed back home. another breaking story, a desperate search for a teenage girl, this teenage girl, who was snatched from the street while she was on her way to school. her allege kidnapper was killed in a shoot-out with police. pearl pinson was last seen being pull off a pathway near a highway. her kidnapper believed to be this man, 19-year-old fernando castro. police spotted his car an hour after an amber alert went out. >> running him in the trailer park. shots fired, shots fired, shots fired. officers cornered and killed him in a gun battle. family members coming together in a vigil.
>> i pray you come home. we need you home. >> investigators are expanding the search in hopes of finding her safe and sound. if you know anything, please call police. viejo, california. >> the mom of the aflew end za team has now been indicted for helping her son escape to mexico. the teenager avoiding prison for killing four people in a drunk driving crash in 2014. a judge found he was too spoiled to know any better. then video surfaced of him drinking at a party violating his probation. the mom withdrew $30,000 and took off to mexico. ethan is still behind bars and tonya is out of on $75,000 bond. coming up on this show, democrats taking aim at donald trump's savvy business skills. >> he actually said he was
hoping for the crash that caused hard working families in cal scal and across america to lose their homes. >> is that argument working with the folks? lea carter breaks out the dials next. the only advil with a rapid release formula for rapid relief of tough pain. look for advil film-coated in the white box! relief doesn't get any faster than this. advil.

ramping up every day before the election. are their jabs helping them sound more presidential or are they turning off voters? let's put it to the pollster, lee carter. we saw hillary clinton and elizabeth warn going after trump. you put it to the test. >> he actually said he was hoping for the crash that caused hard working families in california and across america to lose their homes. >> donald trump was drooling over the idea of a housing meltdown because it meant he could buy up more property on the cheap. what kind of a man does that? a man who will never be president of the united states. >> wow. what do you make of that? >> i think they didn't like it. they are on the floor and they gave it an "f."
the conversation we heard back, democrats saying what kind of man who do this, somebody not presidenti presidential, republicans and independents would say that's a smart businessman. we want somebody in the office. it wasn't a criticism that needed it the most, the independents. >> those independents didn't like it when elizabeth warren was saying that. that yellow line went down. >> we have seen this overand over again that the independents are tracking with the republicans and really stronger and stronger with donald trump every time that we're seeing it. i mean, that was just lock-in-step. >> that will make a big difference. trump responded. let's watch this video and watch the dials and we'll talk about it. >> hillary clinton has somebody -- did you ever hear polka-on at that -- pocahontas. she's a total failure. she said she was an indian.
she's this low-life. did you know that donald trump was rooting against housing because he wanted housing to go back down because he wanted to -- they got some clip, yeah, if it goes down, i'm going to buy. i'm a businessman. >> you can see it was an -- a mirror image on the attacks. they gave it a "b" and he is a businessman. the democrats on the floor there, they gave it an "f." those independents are tracking right lock-in-step with the republicans. that's going to be telling as we go into the general election. >> coming up, breaking overnight, president obama making history, become being the first sitting u.s. president to visit hiroshima since the atomic bombs were dropped in world war ii. what message is the president sending? retired general david hunt is going to be here to talk about it. zbls a big milestone for just
about everyone, so now starting a family is offensive to single people? oh, my gosh. someone call the p.c. police. when cigarette cravings hit, all i can think about is getting relief. only nicorette mini has a patented fast-dissolving formula. it starts to relieve sudden cravings fast. i never know when i'll need relief. that's why i only choose nicorette mini.
show me "previously watched." what's recommended for me. x1 makes it easy to find what you love. call or go online and switch to x1. only with xfinity. breaking right now, the search for that doomed egyptian air flight narrows down to a three-mile radius. reports signals believe to be from the jet have been detected in the mediterranean. investigators say they are coming from the emergency locater transmitter which is different than the black box pings. however, sources now claim nothing has been detected since the day of the crash. you make the call. hundreds of terrified passengers rushed off a plane when it explodes into flames
right before take-off. the korean air flight from tokyo to south korea grounded when an end you didn't catches fire. no one hurt. a dangerous midair scare involving two american fighter jets. brand-new video showing the coast guard pulling the crew members to safety off the coast of north carolina. they were flying in tight formation like this, leaving very little for error. all four crew members expected to be okay, but the jets a total loss. we have a fox news alert on this friday morning. president obama, there you can see right there, making history in hiroshima japan as the first u.s. president to visit that spot since atomic bombsere dropped world war ii. here to react is fox news military analyst and a great pal of this program, retired u.s. army colonel david hunt. good morning. >> good morning.
>> the president went over to japan. everybody was saying he isn't possibly going to apologize for us dropping the bomb, and he did not. your reaction to his visit. >> 70-plus years later, it's respect. united states of america is respecting the dead. that's it. i don't -- i never anticipated any apology. we have nothing to apologize for, certainly not a president 70 years later. i think it was an act of respect and very appropriate. i have absolutely no issue with it. i think it's an appropriate gesture to make. >> one of the things he did do in his comments was he called for an end to nukes just around the globe. do you think that's a good idea? >> yeah. i don't think it's ever going to happen, but if you look at -- the answer is, yes, but i don't know how you get everybody to stop making them or doing them and how do you enforce it because now we've got so many countries from north korea to japan to our friends in israel, to pakistan, india, who have the
nuke. it's going to be very difficult. i would love to see, of course, as a soldier, former soldier, i would love to see a nuke-free world. i'm not sure it's going to happen. >> a big country like us has nukes, isn't that leverage to the bad actors out there? >> yeah. that's my point. i think -- i'm glad we have them. i think it's a shame. my issue is we didn't have to have them, but i don't know how you stop everybody from using them on having them. until you do, of course, we need them as a deterrent. >> you are there in boston this morning live on location for the dedication of a new memorial. tell us about it. >> behind me is something that's absolutely impossible to have ever happened. it's a memorial dedicated to the families of men and women who have died serving this country, active duty, intelligence officers and contractors from massachusetts since 9/11, and it there's also part of the
memorial for people who have died, for example, in suicides or from illness, and this is done by -- developed by combat veterans, all of them have 3, 5, 8 turns in iraq and afghanistan. they are now current cops and firemen. they put a memorial up in boston, massachusetts, the most expensive piece of property in the city all for families. this organization for seven years has done nothing but take care of families of the fallen. there's nothing like it in the country, steve, and the reason it works because of these great combat veterans who cared enough about families in massachusetts to do this. this memorial is being dedicated this morning and it's a week long ceremony for the families. it's spectacular. >> it's not just the memorial there. you touched on it. it's a program to help the vets and their families. help them with what? >> everything. when you lose -- so many guys, people are affected differently, if you are a mother, sister,
grandfather, parent, when someone dies in combat, it's magnified. there's no one that helps these people, goldstar families. they help with money for loans, counselling, they are there for them, the day they get notified and they help them for the rest of their lives. it's unique in this country and it absolutely works. >> i'm glad we're live there for the dedication later today. thank you very much for joining us live from boston. >> thank you. >> all right. coming up on this friday, a teenager comes face-to-face with criminals in her own house. >> they have her. they have her. >> what do you mean by they have her? >> they have her. she said they found me! >> you are not going to believe how this one ends. stay tuned. and this morning, we're going down the rabbit hole with the new movie "alice through the looking glass." is it any good?

peak winds estimated to be 180 miles per hour and this is what that does to your home or your structures that get impacted wi that tornado. i want to share with you some of the belongings that we have been encountering. these are people's lives that have been completely destroyed by a tornado in a matter of seconds. here what we have is a bookshelf or storage item. farther into the debris. you can see a lamp thrown off. this structure was very sturdy. it was made out of concrete blocks. you have brick that was completely destroyed by the power of this tornado. also a chair farther off in the distance. so again just people's lives here thrown. and behind me, we have a house, i want to share with you because it really is a spectacular scene to see that a home was left completely intact by this tornado. it just missed it by inches, yet this structure right here was completely destroyed and that's a lot of what we have been seeing here as we have been
touring the path of destruction this tornado left behind. it's estimated to be on the ground for 26 miles. we have able to speak to the national weather service crews that were here yesterday surveying the damage. they explained how they were able to determine the strength of the tornado through engineering and determining how the home was built and these structures that were destroyed. today, we do have a risk for additional severe weather. it's not as high as it was yesterday, but i do want to mention that the threat, when this tornado ripped through, this ef 4 across portions of kansas, the threat wasn't even that high either. it takes one storm. we've had a lot of rain as well with all of the severe weather. we have standing water here, so insult to injury, people's belongings, they are left with clean-up and now dealing with flooding across this region. looking at the risk for not only damaging winds, large hail, more tornadoes across places like
kansas, oklahoma, and texas, but also for some more flooding. >> all right. maria molina live in abilenabil kansas, the boyhood home of dwight ivan haws ---izen hawser. >> heather nauert. >> good morning, brian, ainsley and steve and good morning to all of you as well. 37 minutes after the hour and start out with a serious story. chilling new video just released of that deadly shooting we told you about at a new york city rap concert. take a moment and watch as the rapper, troy aft bursts into a

democratic governor john bell signed hb 83, it happened yesterday. it aids firefighters, first responders and police officers in a protected class. lance harris, thanks so much for joining us. chairman, what made you think that we really needed this legislation? >> well, several things. when you look at all the news reports that are happening around the country now where officers are being attacked, especially in the last one in houston, officer goforth, i felt it was necessary that we put something in place in louisiana to protect those that are protecting us. you read every day where there's a lot of terrorizing going on. there's a small group of people that have a concerted e really terrorize our officers and do the things to kind of disrupt them in their day-to-day activities. i thought it was a good time and
a very good step and long overdue to include officers and first responders in our ate crime statute. >> you had 9 officers killed in louisiana in 2015. there's a sentiment now of lack of respect. here's what your governor said, the men and women who put their lives on the line every day, often under very dangerous circumstances are true heroes and deserve every protection we give them. hate crimes will not be tolerated in louisiana. what changes now? >> what changes now, it enhances the sentences in a crime is done because and derived out of hate, and our statute is very extensive. it not only covers violent crime but it can cover things such as terrorism, arson, criminal vandalism, and damage. so if someone does something to an officer, ems or firefighter
and it's predicated out of hate, it gives our d.a.s and our parishes extra. >> it lifts morale. some people get up, i'm not appreciated. my life son the line. i think it shows respect that louisiana has for those who keep us safe. lance harris, great job for putting this forward. thanks so much for joining us and talking about it. >> thank you and thrawnk -- thank you so much for having me. >> the scripps national bee ended in a t-i-e. >> that is correct! >> don't go anywhere, both winners join us live. two happy men.

...one of many pieces in my life. so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine. i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment with breo. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo opens up airways to help improve breathing for a full 24 hours. breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed.

killed in the bombing that ended that war. he said the world would be better without nuclear weapons, but before that obama dodged this question about hillary clinton's e-mail scandal and her high paid speeches. listen. >> you know what, i take it back. i'm not taking it back. we're in japan. don't we have something in asia to talk about? i'll be talking about this in washington the whole time. look, i already said a lot about those issues. i think those are better directed to the campaign. >> no, but he did speak about donald trump just yesterday overseas. well, that hiroshima visit capped the trip to asia and he's headed back home to the united states. well, back here at home, another breaking story to bring you. a desperate search is under way right now for a teenager who was snatched from the street on her way to school. her alleged kidnapper was killed in a shoot-out with police. witnesses saw a 15-year-old girl
being dragged away by a man wednesday morning on a freeway overpass. in vallejo, california. her kidnapper is believed to be 19-year-old fernando castro. >> they're running in the trailer park. shots fired! shots fired! >> police officers eventually killed him. relatives are coming together to pray for her safe return. >> i know she's out there and she's alive, and i pray you come home, pearl. we need you home. >> well, we are praying for her, too. and forecasts will tell us how many hurricanes they believe that we will see over the next six months. you know that's hurricane season. in the meantime, let's talk about the plains. they are praising for another round of -- bracing for another round of storms today. just hours after another storm ripped through kansas. in texas, the tornados slammed
into the prison near houston. look at this right here. it's an incredible moment that lightning strikes a watchtower. fortunately no one was hurt in any of those storms. maria molina is covering it in kansas for us today. an amazing find, a shipwreck discovered as the clues dig deep while working on a new high rise building. it's 50 feet long. they they're not quite sure what happened to it or how it got there, but officials believe a low tide may have caused that ship to run aground or may have crashed during a storm and then been buried over hundreds of years. those are your headlines. >> they were just in a hurry. let's just build over this. >> right. >> heather, thank you. meanwhile, donald trump is now over the top, earning more than enough delegates to seal up the republican nomination on the first ballot. >> that's right. steve, the magic number 1,237. he's at 1,239 and counting. >> all right. from fresno, california, fox news senior national correspondent john roberts all
over this. hey, john. >> reporter: brian, ainsley, steve, good morning to you. if you're saying minute, how did he get to 1,239 there hasn't been any primaries since tuesday in washington, a number of the unbound delegates we saw a bunch of those in north dakota decided to throw in with trump and pledged to support him during the first ballot at the convention in july. the fact that he's over 1,237 does not yet make him the official nominee by the way. it just means he'll probably get it on the first ballot. it doesn't become official until the convention. still five primaries to go here on june 7th including california. despite all that, donald trump making a full pivot to the general election in a press conference in bismarck, north dakota, taking aim at hillary clinton over the inspector general's report saying she did not follow the rules when its came to her e-mail server and pushing back hard against president obama who yesterday at the g7 conference in japan left behind the time honored tradition of politics ending at the waterer's edge, he was critical of trump saying that
world leaders were rattled by the prospect of him becoming president and that he was more concerned with tweets and headlines than what's right for the country. i asked mr. trump if he'd like to respond and he did. here's what he said. >> because he's the president who's done a horrible job. everybody understands that. he's a president who's allowed many of these countries to totally take advantage of him. and us unfortunately. and he's got to say something. it's unusual that every time he has a press conference he's talking about me. >> reporter: and yesterday on instagram donald trump posted a photograph saying that he was celebrating his win of 1,237 delegates having a little mcdonald's, french fries and a hamburger on his $100 million jet. and people are saying, oh, come on, that was staged. i flew from st. louis, missouri, to chicago with him earlier this year. he was actually eating a wendy's hamburger and french fries. so brian, ainsley, steve, he
does that all the time. >> he loves it. >> on the road. >> he likes fast planes and fast food. what can you do? drive through. >> i guess when you have that much money you have a mcdonald's on board? how do you get them to send money? >> usually fast food place near every airport. pretty handy. i think it was on monday night hillary clinton announced that she would not be debating bernie sanders on fox. even though she had promised to do that. and then the next morning on this program we talked about it would be a brilliant stroke of genius if donald trump were to offer up the opportunity to either debate hillary or bernie. well, now ever since then, you know what? it's starting to percolate. maybe donald will debate bernie. listen to this. >> i said i'd love to debate him, but i want a lot of money to be put up for charity. i understand the television business very well. i think it would get very high ratings. it should be in a big arena somewhere. bernie is not going to win, but i'd debate him anyway if they
wanted to put up money for charity. we'll see. we have had a couple of calls from the networks already. >> you made it possible for us to have a very interesting debate. >> that's right. >> about two guys who look at the world very, very differently. >> oh, boy, do you guys look it a differently. that would be some debate. i think it might be one of the most highest rated events in television history. >> i think the goal would have to have it in some big stadium here in california. >> right. jimmy kimmel brought it up -- he brought it up to donald trump and said, yeah, for the right money i'll do it. he urges bernie sanders to run as an independent. something else going on. the democrats are furious at bernie sanders for doing this. joe manchin said this is b.s. he didn't use the initials. he said i told you he was never even a democrat. another congressman said this is a huge distraction. he's hurting the party. >> because it makes hillary look bad.
she doesn't want to debate or be one for the people. >> right, she didn't want to debate bernie, but trump does. what does that say? >> right. >> she thinks it's a big joke. according to reuters, fox news has confirmed the network is trying to host a forum with trump and sanders. hope hicks with the trump campaign told reuters no formal plans for a debate, but jeff weaver with the sanders campaign says a few discussions between the campaigns have happened. and they say we hope that he, donald trump, will not chicken out. we hope that donald trump has the courage to get on stage now that he said he would. however, donald trump has made one caveat and that is he'd like to raise millions of dollars for a women's charity. >> let's move on and let's talk about something else that matters a lot -- hillary clinton's damn e-mails to quote bernie sanders who doesn't think it matters. she channeled her inner donald trump and tried to do a bunch of interviews saying i would do things differently, but i didn't
do anything illegal and i look forward to getting this behind me. while admitting she made a mistake in doing it. first she says -- setting up my server i didn't want to mix my personal with my work stuff. then she was saying, oh, i only wanted to carry around one device and now she's saying i'm not comfortable using a computer. that's why i wanted to use my black b blackberry which is unthinkable. i knew she'd get to i'm 68, i'm a grandmother, i don't know how to use the technology. >> well, her staff refused to talk to the inspector general who came out with the report a few days ago. hillary commented on what was found in that report and this is what she has to say. >> after this report came out last night, he kept saying this was not good. he called you crooked hillary repeatedly. what do you say to that? >> well, i think the report is consistent with what i have been saying. that the use of personal e-mail was a practice by other secretary of states and the
rules were not clarified until after i had left. as i have said many times if i could do it over again, i would have done it differently. but i think it's all out there. >> the rules were clarified before she became secretary of state. i mean, it was to the point where they told her, you know, you want to have a blackberry. that was the only way she could get her e-mails because she couldn't figure out how to run a computer, which did not have a pass word. they said if you want to use a blackberry, you can't use it in your suite of offices. they made arrangements, they found an office away from hers that she could do it. it was to the point where she really -- you know, she knew the rules going in. and as the i.g. report showed us all, she knew the rules, she broke them. had she asked for permission she would have been denied. >> even when her staff questioned it, they were told be quiet. his benefits were cut off so he called the v.a.
one problem -- they told him hey, you're dead. we're going to talk to that veteran next. by the way he's alive. and police officers under fire from all sides. so how can they change the public perception? roll the videotape. ♪ it is the running man challenge and this morning we are doing it live with the police chief of detroit. >> fantastic. you're watching "fox & friends" for a friday. good morning, folks. >> i'm calling out cincinnati. >> declined to debate bernie sanders this month. bernie now might debate donald trump. no word on what the debate will be on, but i'm guessing mute.

to pick up the pieces across this area where so much destruction occurred in a matter of seconds. their lives were just changed forever by the force of this tornado. unfortunately, throughout the day today we do anticipate more severe weather out here across portions of kansas, oklahoma, even into texas. possibility of large hail and even more tornadoes. i want to point something else out because we have a lot of standing water out here mixed in with the debris. the reason for that is that yesterday we had another round of severe weather out here and it produced a lot of heavy rain. a big concern is flash flooding that could be ongoing throughout the day today as the storms continue to fire up. let's head over to you in new york. >> all right, maria, north of abilene as they pick up the pieces. coming up on a friday, he was killed in combat two days before christmas. three years later, his wife erin is still healing, but now his story and others will now live in a special way. her story in the -- and the new

and now here we are, six years later, the massachusetts fallen heroes memorial will be dedicated in boston. >> joining us right now is massachusetts fallen heroes executive director, and erin vasselian. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> dan, tell us a little bit about the memorial. >> so we started as you said in 2010 with the simple idea of, you know, doing something different that no one else was. obviously honoring our brothers and sisters that didn't make it home. but more important we wanted to do something for the families of the fallen and bringing them together. so the memorial you see behind me signifies the service and the sacrifice of our loved ones and our friends that didn't make it home. but more importantly it's the anchor point for our programs and mission and bringing the families together. not only on memorial day weekend, but, you know, every other day throughout the year. >> so you were knocking on -- you went knocking on a certain
door. the wife of sergeant daniel vasselian, erin. erin, when dan appeared at your door, what did he say? >> i don't think he said much at first. i have to be in an uncomfortable situation, going to someone's else. but he wanted me to know there was support there for me. you know, i was lost at that time. i didn't know where to turn or who to talk to and if there was anything out there that could support me. so he came in and told me all about massachusetts fallen heros and about the other gold star families and how it's just one big community, and you know, they offer so much support for us. it was great. he kind of swooped in and just when i needed him. >> erin, i know your husband's third deployment, he deployed to afghanistan and died two days before christmas. i can only imagine what that was like for you guys. how did this organization help you with the healing? >> the biggest thing for me was
being able to bond with other gold star families. having someone die for their country you have kind of a pool of pride and pain, so you kind of feel like you need someone who has been there, who has gone through the same thing because you're so proud of that person. but there's an underlying -- you know, pain and heartache. so you can't really -- you can't heal without talking to someone else, who knows what you have been through. >> so dan in addition to the memorial there in downtown boston, you also provide the services to folks like erin. what sort of services? >> absolutely. i mean, one of the biggest things is bringing the families and throughout the year we bring different parts of the families together, whether it's wives or siblings, mothers, fathers. that's important because, one,
it's creating this connection internally with the organization. but it's also -- it gives us an understanding of what they need, whatever pops up, whether it's legal or financial issues. for us to have the ability to be there 24/7 not only for our families but also our returning veterans it goes to show you the type of mission that we've really created. in having the memorial as the anchor point makes it more bittersweet. we're not only there to support them 24/7, but we'll honor and remember their sacrifices forever once this memorial gets dedicated at 11:00 a.m. today. >> you said that dan felt like this was going to be different, and sadly it was. he lost his life. what should we know about your husband? >> he loved serving his country. he loved being a marine above anything. he did say that he felt differently, but he also said that if anything was going to
happen it was going to be to him. he took on that leadership role. i think he'd want to be remembered for doing what he believed in and doing his job. how he was supposed to do it. >> well, erin, we will be remembering him. you know this weekend is memorial day weekend. many people will be at barbecues and that kind of thing, but your husband will be in the forefront of our minds along with all the other individuals who have paid the ultimate price for this great country that we live in. we thank you. we know that sacrifice has not been easy, but you're in our thoughts and prayers this weekend. >> thank you so much. >> dan, thank you very much as well. good luck with the official dedication today, 11:00 there in boston. over 2,300 americans have lost their lives fighting that war in afghanistan. >> that's right. if you want more information, and how to contribute, i believe it's massfallenheroes.org. all right, four minutes before the top of the hour. look who's crashing our party.

$100 million plane eating a $5 big macwendy's as well. in bismarck, north dakota, yesterday, he's targeting more than a dozen states in the general election including here in california which hasn't voted for a republican for president since 1988. here is trump in bismarck. >> i want to focus on 15 or so states because we have to win. i want my energy to be put into states where it could go either way. we're going to play heavy as an example in california. >> reporter: he's also going to play heavy in new york state. looking to put that one in play, but he will be focusing a lot here in california, maybe back next week, and he may have a debate with bernie sanders here. the campaigns since trump announced that are at least -- or at least put down the challenge on jimmy kimmel, the two campaigns have been talking
to each other and trump and sanders really seem to be looking forward to the idea. here they are from yesterday. >> i'd love to debate him, but i want a lot of money to be put up for charity. what we'll do, if we can raise for maybe women's health issues or something, if we can raise 10 or $15 million for charity, which would be a very appropriate amount, i understand the television business very well. i think it would get very high ratings. >> i'm very excited about it. and i think we'll have to rent out the largest stadium you have here in california. >> reporter: meantime, what we're expecting today, there may be some protesters here, at least one group said they want to come out, but an editorial in the fresno bee is encouraging them to be nice and peaceful saying don't tolerate the violent punks. see what happens today. >> john, thank you very much. have a good weekend. five minutes after the top of the hour and some news with heather. >> good morning. five minutes after the hour, hillary clinton's doubling down this morning. she is refusing to acknowledge
that she broke any rules for using her private e-mail server while serving as secretary of state. >> i kept saying this was not good, he kept calling you crooked hillary repeatedly. what do you say to that? >> well, i think the report is consistent with what i have been saying. that the use of personal e-mail was a practice by other secretaries of state and the rules were not clarified until after i had left and i said if i could do it over again i would ve done it differently. >> clinton now doing some major damage control after a scathing report found she did not cooperate with investigators and willingly ignored rules about sharing and storing classified information. a desperate search is under way right now for a teenager in california who was snatched from the street while on her way to school. her alleged kidnapper was killed in a shoot-out with police.

geraldo rivera is here. >> i was hoping you'd use that segue. >> may not be accurate. but he used it. >> the president was addressing in a very emotional ceremony, laying wreaths down, and addressing the japanese. what was significant to you about that? >> well, there are a couple of points i want to make. one is that hopefully humankind will never be forced to use a thermonuclear device, a weapon of that massive destructive power that kills civilians and warrior alike ever ever again. but my dad was a sergeant in the army in world war ii. my late father-in-law was a commander in the united states coast guard in world war ii. my late father-in-law murphy dyer was going on the invasion force in japan. they estimated 1 million casualties they suffered at hiroshima and guadalcanal. they saw the bomb, hiroshima and
nagasaki. they saw them as saviors of life rather than destroyers of life. >> absolutely. >> so the president had to walk a fine line. i haven't seen yet exactly what his remarks were. >> he did not apologize. >> well, i think -- >> he called for a world without nukes. >> i think also that also seems appropriate to me because you don't ever want to have to do it again. but in the context of that world conflagration i think that the united states historically can be -- >> american lives were saved -- >> i wish my grandfathers were alive so i could ask them about what they thought. yesterday, we were talking about a p.i., private investigator who was hire by casey anthony's lawyer, and he's come out and said that anthony's lawyer, jose baez was having sex with casey because she couldn't pay her legal fees. so this was his payment.
now, jose baez this morning is saying this. >> actually, geraldo did talk to jose baez. >> i categorically deny it. i had a long talk with jose, driving in georgia where he's representing someone who has been condemned on death row, jose is handling his appeal. on tuesday, he will be coming to new york and he'll make the rounds and stop here if you want him. to absolutely vehemently rebut casey's allegation, which he calls baseless and an absolute lie. he reminds us that this private investigator -- >> casey's allegation or the investigators -- >> his last name is casey. dominic casey. >> yeah. he reminds us that this private investigator is the same man who alleged that el chapo paid for casey anthony's defense and another time in this case bizarrely said that the child --
the missing toddler, had been taken as a sex slave to venezuela. the man with no credibility. jose baez swears it never happened. he swears that dominic casey never saw casey anthony naked. that casey anthony when she was in jose baez's office was confined to the conference room. he further says, jose baez, that he's going to move to hold dominic casey in contempt of the bankruptcy judge because of this filing that is so far off the money. in other words, unequivocally he denies this ever happened. he is shocked and dismayed that it's gotten the kind of coverage that it has. he says, you know -- i know his wife. >> do you believe him? >> i totally believe jose, i do. dominic casey, he for instance said how baez would frame the utility guy who found the -- >> unreliable guy in your
estimation? >> in my estimation, extremely unreliable. >> it will be have great to have him on the program on tuesday. >> he'll come by if you want him. >> just like you come by. >> on friday. >> i'll speak with you at 9:06 eastern. this video is pretty hard to watch. a cop getting beat up by a group of thugs and now something is being done to criminals like this like never before. hillary clinton taking aim at trump's business acumen. >> he actually said he was hoping for the crash that caused hard working families in california and across america to lose their homes. >> but is buy low/sell high flying with voters? lee carter is here next with dial. but first, let's listen to the first all-american concert series performer dustin lynch. ♪ man, my feet are killin' me.

warren. they gave an "a." and independents and republicans, it did not resonate and they gave it an "f." the conversation came us to something like, where the democrats said what kind of a man would do this, a horrible man unfit for office. and the republicans and the independents said a smart business man. >> no one thinks he's the cause. >> exactly right. what's most important there, the independent vote tracking along. >> here is trump going back on the offense for a change. slamming hillary clinton and warren on the real estate conclusions they made. >> hillary clinton has somebody -- did you ever hear of pocahontas? huh? it's pocahontas, elizabeth warren. she's a total failure. she said she was an indian. i see this low life, she puts on the ad, did you know that donald trump was rooting against housing because he wanted housing to go down because he wanted to buy -- and they have a clip of me saying yeah, if it
goes down -- i'm a businessman. that's what i'm supposed to do. >> right. the grades? >> the grades there independents and republicans, "b," not surprisingly the democrats gave it an "f." again, the independents tracking right along with the republicans. the same thing that resonates with republicans works with independents. >> very interesting. thanks so much. i sense we are a polarized country. thank you very much. >> yes. meanwhile, have we seen the end of the nickname little marco? you have to hear what he's saying about trump this morning and vice versa. and up next, one company is finding jobs for war veterans. but first, here's dustin lynch performing "halo." ♪ ♪ but she won't listen you ain't fooling me ♪

for months the mainstream media have questioned if trump can be trusted with top secret intelligence briefing, but after the latest reports slamming hillary clinton for using a -- an illegal private e-mail server should either candidate receive classified information before taking the chair in the oval office? here to break down this open book policy is fox news legal analyst peter johnson jr. >> good morning. >> where did these secret briefings start? >> you know, this is unique to american politics and policy. in 1952, harry truman said i was woefully unprepared for the atom bomb as vice president. i didn't even know it was being developed. so when fdr died i was thrown into office. he said let's brief our candidates, republican and democratic, as to what's going on in terms of our foreign policy. and that's what we have been doing for the last 60 years or so. some interesting points.
jimmy carter before he was even receiving the nomination was briefed by george h.w. bush who was then head of the cia. >> does that make sense? >> ronald reagan was also briefed but he was not a big fan of the briefings because he said, what do i really do with this information? he was concerned that certain information could spill out. allegedly walter mondale actually didn't go forward and refused his briefing. >> why? >> unclear. unclear in the history books. but we know that aides to presidential candidates like henry kissinger and others for richard nixon, they received the briefings. so that becomes the issue in america today. now, when it was forecast that donald trump would be getting a briefing, a lot of the people of the liberal media said that's terrible. he shoots from the hip. he's going to -- >> blabber out. >> give out the state secrets.
but it withe hillary e-mail sec report out yesterday, can we trust her aides? including the eight people who decided that they wouldn't cooperate with the state department -- >> good point. >> the investigation going forward. so it's a matter of sensitivity and importance. it's something to think about going forward in america. >> there's a "newsweek" story apparently her leaky communications system may actually resulted in two counterterrorism operations being thwarted. >> i saw that story and i think that's something to look at here on "fox & friends" a little bit more. if that's so, that's really terrifically frightening, saying that there was no policy procedure with regard to confidential communications in that office. >> something to chew on. peter johnson jr., thank you very much and have a great holiday weekend. >> god bless america. >> indeed. straight ahead, "people" magazine named him one of country music's sexiest guys and today he's rocking out the plaza.
