>> and finally the ugly. >> oh, no! >> he should have seen that one coming. his friends are howling as you can here. that's hilarious. that's a no-brainer. thank you so much for joining us. like to have you here today. you'll be here tomorrow. >> yep. >> "fox & friends" starts right now. bye! good morning to you and your family. it is wednesday, june 1st. i'm ainsley earhardt and we start with a fox news alert. brand-new national polls just out only seconds ago providing a new picture of the state of this presidential race. how donald trump and hillary clinton stack up against each other. then donald trump rips the media to their face. >> the press should be ashamed of themselves. no credibility. losers. you are a real beauty and i don't like dishonesty. you are a sleaze. looiblous stories.
3:01 am
>> wait till you hear hue hillary clinton is responding. and arnold schwarzenegger nearly terminated by an elephant. that encounter caught on camera. are animals just attacking us? >> i didn't think the terminator was scared. >> no doubt about it. because your mornings are better with friends. ♪ grng to you and to your family. hope you had a great night. we have a lot to talk about. >> hopefully you went to bed early, because you are up early. if you stayed up too late, you are sleeping through the show. you are feeling in for steve today. >> i guess, so i'm told. i'll sit here nicely. donald trump had a press conference to announce and it was announced the day before at his biker rally that he was going to have a press conference to announce where the $6 million was going.
3:02 am
what veterans groups. come to the trump tower. >> you know my opinion of the media is very low. i think the media is frankly made up of people that in many cases, not in all cases, are not good people. i didn't want the credit for it, but it was very unfair that the press treated us so badly. go ahead. i like scrutiny, but you know what -- when i raise money -- excuse me, i've watched you on television, you are a real beauty. what i don't want when i raise millions of dollars, have people like this sleazy guy over here from abc, he's a sleaze in my book. you know the facts and you know the facts well. >> is this what it's going to be like covering you if you are president? >> it is. >> we're going to have this kind of confrontation in the press room. >> yes, it is. >> if the press writes false stories, half of you are amazed
3:03 am
that i raised all this money. i had no choice because the press was saying i didn't raise any money for them. >> brian, i watched you on tv, you are a real beauty. >> he raised $6 million when he didn't do the fox debate. that was a long time ago. it's natural to inquire where the money is. where it's going. pete, especially in light of what's going on over the last few months over well-known charities where the money is not going. >> he made that point and other veterans said you got to vet these groups and make sure you know where the money is going. there was scrutiny from the press. it was a good thing to do. he talked about the va and fixing the va is something we talked about. >> journalists were saying it's our job to ask you about this. he was saying i'm trying to do giving something good.
3:04 am
i'm giving almost $6 million in charity and you are trying to paint this in a bad light. >> organizing protesters outside the trump tower. many people didn't think that was an important element of the story rmt. >> rush limbaugh says that republicans have been waiting on this type of talk, an honest approach for a very long time. listen. >> how many years have people been begging for a republican to just once take on the media the way trump did? all the way from the premise to the details, to the motivation. near the end of it, a frustrated journalist, mr. trump, is it going to be this way? are you going to be attacking us after you become president? because, folks, in the age of internet trolling, manners are out the window. it's a waste of time asking for
3:05 am
manners here. >> so right before we went on set, pete and i were talking about why is it that america loves trump so much? why is it that america wants this? and you were saying that long gone are the days where we need to be polite. >> twitter and things like that. that game has change a lot. there's so much angst and frustration about the process. they see press secretaries and the president talking to the president. everyone is bending the truth. he's done with it. i'm coming after you. people like that. he wins in those confrontations. >> a lot of people are horrified about it. donald trump said by the way i have a twitter account. says this, i'm getting great credit for my press conference today. crooked hillary should be dmoshed for not having a press conference in 179 days. she's not had a press conference in 2016 but she's taking a play out of donald trump's playbook.
3:06 am
she's calling in to shows. >> she had an interview and this was her response to all the criticism about not having press conferences. >> i have to say, jake, i had my team check. i have done nearly 300 interviews just in 2016. and i believe that it's important to continue to, you know, speak to the press as i'm doing right now, and to understand that he's attacking everybo everybody, fellow republicans, democrats, i mean, the press. you just name it. he attacks everybody. it's a recipe for gridlock in washington. >> she's saying she's had 300 interviews in 2016, but hillary, you have not come on "fox & friends." we've asked you every single day since i have been sitting at the
3:07 am
skeet at least. i get the emails. we ask every single day and you have not come on "fox & friends." you've done 300 interviews. we invite you. >> stop icing out ainsley. >> please, i want to talk to you. >> and they were overly generous themselves on 300. no press conference. the way donald trump did it twice in two days they haven't done it in six months. >> we're getting these polls from quinnipiac. here it is. quick look at the national poll. here it goes. hillary clinton with a four-point lead on the national average in the quinnipiac poll has just come out. they continue to talk about if a third party candidate comes in, for example, a libertarian candidate,s it's 40-38-5. >> interesting. that doesn't even factor in the bernie factor potentially of where he would land or where those people would go necessarily if he decided to run their party. there's so much up in the air.
3:08 am
i think we have a chance to talk to bernie sanders' campaign manager later on in the show. if you look at those polls for a second, it's pretty astounding, you would think the libertarian would take more percentage points from donald trump, but it looks as though it takes from hillary as well and as does 3% of the green party, that takes from hillary. who those other candidates are could make or break this election. >> indeed. >> it looks like there's going to be a big fight. hillary has changed her plans. she has left new jersey. now she's inle ka cal campaigning, was at least yesterday, but a little bit fearful of losing this election. >> but not in california is our friend heather nauert. >> i'm not in california yet but we're heading there next week for the primary. we have a lot of stuff going on. good morning to all of you. a couple headlines. >> police are investigating what killed two people and hospitalized dozens more at an electronic music festival in

3:16 am
>> how did you get that message to him? >> we were working with the trump team at the time. i told him about social media and a new way to promote books. social media only really works when there's an authenticity to it, so it would have required mr. trump to be involved. so they said if that's the case, you are going to have to tell him that yourself. they invited me to come back the following week and i had seven minutes to explain to him what social media was all about, and so he was very interested in it. >> here's a guy in his 60s. a lot of people don't want to change the way he they do things. he was so open to the opportunity to bypass the media and be his own media trump pet, correct? >> that's right. there was some governmenter -- i am pofter at the time --

now, you talk about something else that often gets him in trouble and i don't get in a lot of trouble with twitter, he gets a lot more trouble with retweets. >> you have to be careful. you have to take a moment to think about it. once you do it, you were out there. >> in the beginning, you were doing a lot of it. when it comes to something very personal, you got to check with me and then you notice something you were telling me in the green room. he's doing almost all of it, from what it seems? >> from what i understand. he's got this great young guy named justin who is handling his accounts now for him, they really pull him in and he's tweeting himself andle are involved personal. >> you mentioned too facebook. bring him to twitter, facebook. go to facebook, go to twitter. again, you realized that in 2009. >> yeah and also youtube. it went so well that he invited me back. i interviewed him for an hour and we created a promotional video that went up on youtube and interestingly enough at the end of that, when the cameras
3:19 am
were off, we had a little chat about the new president obama and he said, well, i really hope he can help the economy, and then he said to me, you know, i'm thinking of running for president, and his team qirled that -- confirmed that back then too. >> and he did and he was also. we also did some -- we looked through the stats, through the retweets and found out who was number one for him. believe it or not, this is very controversial, happy cinco de mayo. the best tack could he see are made in trump tower. bottom line, people loved it. >> well, it's one of those wrgs his fans are his fans and they want him to be his himself and like i said when you are authentic on social media, usually it works for you. >> and it is working much more than the other candidates. anyone close to his savvy when it comes to this? >> yeah.

4:05 am
issues? for hillary clinton it was immigration, nuclear weapons, deploying troops and getting things done. for trump, creating jobs and fighting isis. again, it could cross over on those. those are the ones that tended -- >> creating jobs. number one issue. why they're going to the poll, economy. they like donald trump for creating jobs and not taking businesses elsewhere. >> if elections were based on who creates more jobs, it was interesting to see underneath that some of the people talked about. maybe a barbecue. >> they actually asked these voters who would you want to have a barbecue? they would rather invite trump to the backyard backyard, but 47-41 they would turn to clinton during a personal crisis. >> so what are they saying there? they'd rather have beer with donald trump, but yet -- >> have a deep talk on a personal crisis with hillary clinton? >> right. that's what the american people are saying. don't judge, we just report. how do they view trump a strong leader, honest and trustworthy.

donald trump grilled by the liberal media about his claims of donating nearly $6 million to veterans holding a press conference yesterday putting the claims to rest. but everyone talked about the u.s. veteran who took the stage and took the media to task. >> donald trump is doing this from the heart. you oar all focused on the way he's raising money and you're not look at the 22 veterans that are killing each other day. you're not concern about the thousands of veterans that are on wait lists. look at his plan on his website. he talks about medical cards, he talks about fixing the v.a. and about competition. i think the liberal media, i have been dealing with you a long time, you need to get your head out of the butt and focus on the issues. >> tell us how you really feel. joining us right now is new hampshire state representative, al baldasaro. >> we've worked together a few times. >> you have done a lot of great work for the vets.

4:18 am
if they were concerned about veterans they would be patting him on the back saying for thank you for all the liberals. why aren't the liberal media focused on the v.a. hospital issues, committing suicides, wait lists and they're instead worried about where the almighty dollar is that trump is doing. it's political. >> indeed. look at hillary clinton hasn't held a press conference in almost six months which donald trump pointed out. it looked like he -- there was almost an authentic reaction on stage. to say, hey, guys, i'm here to announce the guys and you're accosting me with questions about where that money went. >> this is crazy. you know, what it is is this is all political but they're using the veterans. i wish they were -- they would stop using them as political pawns. did 22 years in the military. if i left a piece of classified material out or had it on my phone, i'd be court marshaled and kicked out of the military. something is wrong with this counter. >> you mentioned political pawns, i had the same frustration that happened.
4:19 am
some had accused mr. trump of using vets in the press conferences. you have worked with him behind the scenes. what do you see in his heart toward votes and his desire -- >> you know what i see here -- i wouldn't put my name on a candidate, i meet them all and i look at what they have done for veterans. first of all, donald trump sent over a plane to pick up 200 marines over in iraq or afghanistan. okay. to bring them back home because there was no transportation. what he did, you know that marine that was in prison for four years? he sent him $25,000. he financed the parades here in new york. he's done the monuments. this man has done so much for veterans over the years. he's an unsung hero, been doing this here. >> how do you feel about his plan to reform the v.a.? >> i actually helped him. i sent him the information. they sent the draft back to me, representative -- we sat at the table at my house, we added some stuff, sent it back and he rolled it out. he listens, he utilizes the
4:20 am
talents. as a matter of fact, you know your study -- some of the stuff in this, you had a great study with the concerned veterans of america, and the concerned veterans, we put that together. >> i'm glad to see that. there's accountability and choice in this. >> and keeping the v.a. up and running. modernized them where people -- saying he wants to shut down the v.a. it's an honor. >> thank you very much, al baldasaro. all right, glenn beck silenced. what got him yanked off the radio? and you know her as an ally from disney's hit show, "austin and ali" and now laura marano is making the transition from disney star to pop star. she joins us next. ♪ you're not gonna watch it! ♪

it's never too late to get started investing but it's really important for her to really get into high gear. and understand her options. i would advise her for to check out my irq tool, free tool to help people understand about investing and their retirement dream. but it's never too late, but she does need to get moving in the right direction. >> where can they find that tool, on your website? >> yes, ma'am. they can find it on chris hogan becky from virginia asks i have a life insurance policy with a cash value of $6,000. should i cash it in and purchase term life insurance, if so, what should i do with the money? what do you think? >> well, i would tell becky that i remember term life insurance, but here's what i would do. i would want to make sure that she got a term life policy full and in effect which means in place. then she could take a look at cashing out the whole life policy and using that money toward attacking debt or building an emergency fund. that way she keeps herself
4:40 am
covered regardless of her health situation. >> chris, this is ruben from texas, we have three to six months of expenses for an emergency fund. is the three to six month rule still applicable in retirement? if not, what do we do with our emergency fund? >> well, i would tell ruben this. number one, congratulations on having an emergency fund. remember the goal of having it is to keep a cushion between you and life happening. so just because you're retired doesn't mean we want to give up that cushion. peace of mind. remember your emergency fund is not an investment it is insurance. it's there just in case. so leave it in the money market account and stay focused and keep investing towards your dream. >> all right. you can open up a money market account at your bank and it provides a higher interest rate than in the savings account, right? >> you're absolutely right. >> i learned that from you. thank you, chris. great to see you this morning. >> thank you for having me. >> thanks to the three people for writing.

all right. hillary clinton's e-mail headache not going away by a long shot. in the hot seat, long time clinton confidant cheryl mills who admitted in the deposition that she bypassed state department servers by using her personal address to e-mail mrs. clinton. she partly blamed the attack on benghazi, get this, for clinton's failure to release e-mails. joining us is tom fitton who won the right in court to question key members of clinton's staff. first off, stunning. she showed up with a lot, seven to 11 lawyers including herself. >> yeah. seven lawyers for ms. mills. we had four attorneys. i was there as president of judicial watch so i watched the procedure proceedings. but it was tough going for the attorney who was conducting the questioning because the government lawyers and mrs. mills' personal attorney
4:46 am
objected vociferously to many of the questions. >> what was your goal in talking to her? what was the main aim? >> we wanted to find out about the clinton e-mail system. which is i guess the question of the year. in terms of how that system impacted the freedom of information act. the american people's right to know. two courts have wanted these questions answered. so we did try to get the answers and ms. mills admitted that foia was impacted negatively and she suggested that they wish they had thought of that at that time. >> wow. where does benghazi factor into this? it's extremely hard for congress, trey gowdy and company to get a lot of these communications. but yet, now that figures into her inability to furnish you the answers you need? >> you know when you leave government office at the federal level you're supposed to leave your records behind and make
4:47 am
sure they have been preserved. we asked ms. mills about that, her response was that we didn't focus on that necessarily because when we were leaving, benghazi had happened and that actually happened several months before. mrs. clinton was sick. >> how much do you think cheryl mills knows about why this server was put together, what was it there for and what were they told before they set it up? >> i think she knows more than she's willing to say in the sense that we asked questions specifically on that. we were told we couldn't get into it for attorney/client and other reasons. for instance, she talked to bryan pagliano, the clinton i.t. official who supposedly asserted his fifth amendment and he has immunity, we wanted to know what did they talk about, what did she learn? i was doing it as mrs. clinton's attorney, so you can't find out. >> wow. she made herself mrs. clinton's attorney, and she kardashianed you in the way that kardashian
4:48 am
was used by o.j. perhaps. you want to find out what and who would be next in your quest? >> we want to find out about this freedom of information act, how it was upended by the clinton e-mail issue. we want to know where those missing e-mails are. mrs. clinton only turned over half the e-mails she took with her. up next is a key state department official who supposedly told folks or was aware of the e-mail system and they didn't want individuals talking about it. was aware of the open records law and next week is bryan pagliano, the i.t. official. >> and colin powell also had a private e-mail and now the clinton camp is saying these are two of the same things. is it? >> no, it isn't because mrs. clinton obviously didn't check into prior practice before setting up her e-mail system. powell didn't have a private server. he used the classified network.
4:49 am
he didn't conduct all of his business on his -- on his personal account. and mrs. clinton and her allies are using what he supposedly did as an after the fact rationalization and excuse. ms. mills testified that mrs. clinton continued her practice of using personal e-mail. that's all she did. she didn't use it for convenience. she used it because she had done it before in the senate and kept doing it under a new e-mail account. >> bryan pagliano is next. we look forward to finding out what happens inside there and come back on the show. >> thank you. >> all right, tom fitton, thanks. straight ahead, we change gears. animal rights activists protesting and holding vigils, and they said the gorilla's life mattered as much as the child's life and dr. ablow has something to do. at on this date back in 1997, hanson was at top of the

4:54 am
medical a-team psychiatrist, dr. ablow. why is that? why do we have people with signs out there with gorilla lives matter? >> i think it's tough, because people aren't being asked to make difficult choices in their lives, what are they willing to put on the line in order to achieve the greater good. it's easy for people to now say, oh, such a cute animal. look, i love animals. i think it's sad that this animal died, but let's be honest, a lot of those protesting are wearing leather sneakers. cows' lives don't matter? why the gorilla, because it's cute? by the way, the gorilla is caged. he doesn't want to be there to begin with. so the bottom line is it's okay to cage the gorilla, keep it in a habitat so spectators can look at it. but when the life of a child is at risk, these people may not know what it's like to be parents and make tough choices. i would question their parenting skills because you know what, i'm a psychiatrist so i tend to look at things logically for the factual basis.

5:06 am
>> labor, parts. let's bring in jeff weaver. jeff weaver has done an incredible -- he's done an incredible job getting bernie sanders to the threshold of the nomination. but with six days left does he have enough to take california, new jersey and everything else? jeff, welcome back. >> thanks, glad to be here. >> jeff, what do you think it says the fact that hillary clinton jetted out to california? >> well, i think it's pretty clear that the polls are closing here rapidly in california. you know, recent poll had us only two points down after being much further back than that. the momentum is clearly with the senator here. he's talking to crowds, 10,000, 20,000 people at a time. we're doing advertising here on the air here in california. i just arrived here in california, but i have to tell you, tremendous amount of energy on the ground for the senator in california. >> jeff, donald trump was hammering the media for being in the tank for hillary clinton. we have been playing the sound bites from yesterday.
5:07 am
how do you feel about that? do you think that the media is in the tank for hillary? >> i wouldn't say they're in the tank for hillary. absolutely not. i think what's outrageous about what donald trump did is that he himself has benefited from hours and hours and hours of uninterrupted coverage of his rallies. he's received i mean probably well in excess of $100 million free coverage from media who just puts his rallies up on the air, hoping he'll say something outrageous. so he's really not in a position to complain about media coverage. >> but is it fair for hillary clinton to punch back when she hasn't held a press conference for six months. he's out there answering questions and she hasn't done that. >> it's true that hillary clinton has been much more difficult for the media to reach. if you talk to those who cover her campaign i think there's frustration among the media about her accessibility. you know, bernie sanders is out there every day, very accessible to the media. holds media avails all the time.
5:08 am
the secretary, you know, has a much more scripted program. >> what stood out for you with the i.g. report as you -- only one person standing in the way of the nomination, hillary clinton. this i.g. report looks damning from almost every single. do you see yourself looking at that and maybe giving something to your candidate to bring forward because bernie sanders famously said no one cares about your damn e-mails. have you guys changed your position? >> no. the senator has not changed his position. there are so many substantialtive differences between hillary clinton and bernie sanders, he supports a $15 an hour minimum wage and she does not. and he supports universal health care and she does not. and free tuition, she doesn't support that. so many substantive differences. >> this is new, jeff. you're in second place with those issues. this could be something that gets into character and integrity and how you act in office. >> well, i think that the i.g.
5:09 am
report really speaks for itself. anybody who is interested in it can read it. but look, the process is still going on. there's an fbi investigation going on. i think the state department proper as opposed to the i.g. is doing its own investigation so this has a ways to play out. let's see where it goes. >> there's a new rasmussen poll out that says if hillary clinton is charged with a felony, 50% say she could continue to run until the court determines her guilt or innocence and then 43% say she should immediately stop campaigning. what's your reaction? >> that's a wild hypothetical. i find it difficult to believe that a candidate who is under indict can't continue to run. >> pending felony charges if that were to happen would disqualify her, she should drop out? >> no. i just talked about it from the practical standpoint. i think that would be difficult to continue running a race. but you know, there's no indication that's going to happen, frankly. but you know this race will go
5:10 am
on. senator is doing well in california. i think we have an opportunity to win. >> no one has worked harder than you guys. you went from nowhere to everywhere. everybody knows who you are around the world. if hillary clinton does run into additional turn lens, don't worry, they'll trot out joe biden. not bernie sanders. what's your reaction to that? >> well, we our off in speculation land, but i have to say that bernie sanders has -- by the time this process is over, he will have won over 20 states, he has 2 million individual contributors. if hillary clinton is not the nominee, bernie sanders will be. >> you're spending a lot of time in california with the primary coming up on tuesday. you spent time at game 7 watching the warriors play oklahoma city. and i believe the senate was in row 15. you received some criticism because these are not cheap tickets. these are thousand dollar tickets with a celebrity.
5:11 am
he's also been criticized for enjoying fine dining on chartered jets when he went to rome and elsewhere. is there fair criticism that bernie sanders is another limousine liberal, he likes to talk about the 1%, but ultimately likes to join them also. >> well, i think anybody who knows the senator knows that's certainly not the case. he lives a middle class lifestyle, doesn't have a lot of money. i think he's one of the poorest members of the united states senate. i find that a little bit laughable frankly. i have known him for over 30 years. he lives a humble life for a senator. >> how does he explain the la h lavi lavish trips? >> it wasn't a lavish trips. he was invited by the pope to talk about income inequality all around the world. they chartered a plane for him to get there along with a bunch of media folks.
5:12 am
i'm sure fox people were on there as well. it was a charter fare, the menus may look good. i have eaten on the planes, it's not always what it looks like on the menu. >> if hillary clinton gets over the threshold june 7th, on june 8th, what do you and bernie sanders do? >> well, look, the senator has said he'll go all the way to the convention. in the democratic process we have pledged delegates that are elected by people and then the super delegates who are elected officials and party leaders. neither candidate will have enough pledged delegates after june 7th to win the nomination. that's just a fact. hillary clinton is not going to have enough and senator sanders is not going to have enough. the super delegates -- >> super delegates, you're going to convince them to come to your side? what could change? it's got to be the indictment. what else could change the calculus of the super delegates? >> i think super delegates are like every other voter. super delegates will vote at the convention. as you get closer to voting you pay more attention to the election frankly. i think the polling has been out
5:13 am
there in the world, you have seen it, certainly some of the fox news polls have borne this out. bernie sanders is a much stronger candidate against trump than secretary clinton. she's losing in some battle ground states to him. the difference between the two is in single digits. bernie sanders trounces trump, particularly among the independents. and bernie sanders just a much better position to do that than secretary clinton at this point. >> jeff weaver, congratulations on your success. thanks for being with us. >> and over the next few days it will be big. jeff weaver join us. >> it's ironic that the socialist is making the electability argument which is being made on that side. >> but he's right, most polls have him doing better against trump. who's to blame in the gorilla situation? the parents or the zoo? abby huntsman spoke to some yesterday and she is here with the responses.

5:20 am
different reactions. you guys are parents so i'm sure you thought about this. every time someone would say i blame the parents, it's their fault, i would follow up with what if that your child, they felt the zoo did the right thing. but still everyone is so sad because this gorilla was like part of their family. they loved this guy so much. >> right. but it's still a gorilla as opposed to -- >> to a child. >> the other thing i'm wondering what those barriers look like. i know you some footage of what the barrier looked like. because they're working on it now, but clearly there's an issue there. >> that was the question, how tough was it to get inside where the gorillas were. we have our phones -- that's the video we took off of the cell phones. >> what are we seeing right now? >> it's closed off and they're working -- look, like they're fixing things so it can't help again. but you have to go through multiple barriers to get to where the gorilla was. it's not easy. >> thanks, abby. great job. donald trump unleashes his

5:26 am
university, i am a slob. i'm -- i dress like a clown as you guys if you want to get the shoes in. >> no, you have gym today -- you have converse. >> but they're trump shoes. these are going to make america great again. i'm hoping somebody can get this shot. here is what's so powerful about what donald trump is doing which is the american people hate political correctness. not just the republicans. independents and some democrats as well. second is that they're tired of being told what to think and how to think. by the press. >> right. >> they want to make those decisions themselves. so as he is doing this, the average reporter thinks this guy is horrible. the average voter thinks finally someone is standing up to them, shouting them down and putting them back in their place. the only people who have credibility ratings as unfavorable as members of congress are members of the press. >> wow. that's true. so when he was yelling at the press he's really not hurting himself because the american people go, okay, he's showing an aggression. he wants to win. >> it's the reason why the top
5:27 am
5% of the country doesn't like -- the highest income people don't like him. because he doesn't speak their language. but why he's getting so blue collar workers and working class members. >> you study the political class, this is what you do for the living. you're watching and learning and all the experts have been wrong. but you said something interesting in the break. you said that donald trump said why should i change because look what i have done so far being me. but your answer is very interesting. you think he's got to change. doesn't mean it will get you the rest of the way. what do you mean? >> the person who taught me this was newt gingrich in 1994. what made you successful as the opposition leader would not make you successful if you were in power. reagan said the same thing in 1980. one thing to say it as a critic. >> right. >> it's another thing when you're elected president and how you behave. donald trump absolutely shocks and just embarrassed the pundits
5:28 am
because of his style. but what got him to the nomination, with that segment of republican and independent voters does not get you to 50% among the new electorate which is all of america. >> so frank, do you think he needs to say, this is how i get rid of the $19 trillion or get rid of isis or name the people that would do that? >> i want to give you credit because in the break, you said he probably should name his cabinet. you're right. because that tells you the people who are going to around him. in my interviews with trump voters that's the firm one -- the number one thing they say to me. as long as he surrounds himself with bright, experienced people that's what i'm looking for in the businessman and in the next president of the united states. >> wow. so i mean, so far, we're seeing that he is very comfortable with the rallies. let's see if he's going to be comfortable with the super pacs and raising money. >> he has an important convention speech. the less he's reading from the
5:29 am
teleprompter which is what hillary clinton has to do, the more effective he'll be and then of course the debates. >> all right. bill kristol is rolling out a candidate, a third party. >> meaningless. meaningless. >> why? >> because this is not someone who's ever held elective office, not someone that the american people know. not someone who has the money and the experience. it is absolutely meaningless. >> 1% could make this election. >> yes. but you should be looking at gary johnson, former governor of new mexico and bill weld, former governor of massachusetts. they're much more credible. >> and your sneakers say? >> make america great again. there we go. that's donald trump. here's the thing. i'm selling these for so much money. i'm winning by selling these sneakers. >> there you go. absolutely. he's got a righty and a lefty. good to see you, frank. meanwhile, coming up in the final half hour, brand-new presidential poll out answering questions like this.

well, brand-new abuse allegations surfacing against the actor johnny depp. he is now accused of trying to suffocate his wife with a pillow. well, that's according to one of her close friends who found amber heard bruised and battered. a judge issued a restraining order against depp just days after heard filed for divorce. and we are now learning that northwestern university refused to hire a retired army lieutenant general karl eikenberry months after it named him to lead a new department at that school. critics ultimately derailing his appointment, questioning his qualifications as former military, publishing an open letter in february saying this. quote, as faculty who are deeply committed to academic integrity, we believe it would be irresponsible to remain silent while the university's core mission of independent research and teaching becomes identified was military and foreign policy.

her last one was about six months ago. but has promised to hold one soon. and $7.8 million. that's how much it would cost to put the lawyers through ethics training which they're refusing. they're defying a court order after accusations they deceived the state of texas about president obama's immigration reform. finally, $600,000 that's how much al sharpton owes new york state. the debts to date back to back to 2008. he's in no rush. the press should be ashamed of themselves. no credibility. loser. you're a real beauty. but i don't like dishonesty. you're a sleaze. libelous stories. unbelievably dishonest. >> well, those are just a few choice words donald trump had for the press yesterday. the presumptive nominee slamming and shaming reporters in a tense press conference over veteran donations and voters just might agree with him. the last gallup poll shows that the public's trust in the news media dipped to an all time low.
5:44 am
only four in ten americans trust the press. on the other hand, they consider trump to be a quote, strong leader who's honest and inspiring. so is he on to something here? let's ask our fox news legal analyst, peter johnson jr. >> good morning. he's on to american history. history in this country, something called yellow journalism. that's a history in this country called a corrupt media, about publishers that own candidate, about publishers that -- i don't want to say a bad word, but proselytize certain parties. that's a double standard, you go after republicans, you go after conservatives and middle of the road people and crucify them if you can. so donald trump is responding to american history and he's saying to the american people, i'm going toe to toe with the press. i'm going to use intel for rat langua
5:45 am
language, i'm going to go over the bounds when i think they go over the bounds. in spite of the symbiotic situation, they live each other, trump and the media, it's a texas cage death match in that one of them needs to come out alive and donald trump says to the media, you're not going to eat me alive. yesterday was an eat me alive press conference where the press thought they had the goods on donald trump and would take him down in his own building. he said not going to happen today, boys. that's what happened yesterday. >> even if it means they'll go back to their newspapers and write negative stories about him? >> absolutely. that's a famous indiana congressman that said you don't fight with the press because they buy buy ink by the barrel. but trump said i can take on the boss, i can take on the fixed media. fox news did it and in response to fox news, the clinton team, the clinton machine, came one an organization called media
5:46 am
matters. >> yeah. >> and their people financed it. so they let's take fox news down. that's an effort by the mainstream media and the mainstream liberal democratic establishment to take down candidates and take down media. and what donald trump is doing in his intemperate way, he is fighting back. i have a message, you may not like it, but you won't take me down. i will be heard fair and square. i will either win or lose. but i will not lose because of an unfair media. and the american people like that message. even a lot of democrats like that message because they have seen an unfair media for a long, long time. in fact, people have been victimized by it. you have seen the buttons, victim of the press. trump said i won't be a victim, no way, no how.

a systemic failure that's how the senate describes the v.a. leadership after a year long invest into the medical center in wisconsin. three deaths are under investigation, nicknamed candy land because it handed out so many opiates and pain killers. in a hearing yesterday held at toma, sloan gibson admitted agency mistakes saying at the end of the day, we own this. v.a. leadership owns this. we had ample opportunities over the years to fix this. joining me now is marv simkusky. his son overdosed, and he testified yesterday. marv, thank you for joining us this morning and your courage at that testimony. tell me a little bit more about
5:52 am
yesterday's hearing. what were you -- what were they taking a look into and what did you find out? >> well, they took a look at, you know, a lot of different things that had happened in the past at the v.a. facility. and all the problems that happened in the past, that, you know, they're trying to correct and they brought a lot of the problems to light with -- at the hearing. >> marv, you know, what's -- the details of your son's case are so tragic. and i know you know that more than anyone else, but an internal report found that the opiates were being overprescribed, but it was kept under wraps. your son died five months later of toxicity. do you feel like if that report had been exposed that things would have changed? >> you know, i think a lot of things should have been done prior to my son's death.
5:53 am
yes, he probably would have been alive today if things had been done differently. now, you know, that my son passed away my family is looking for solutions to the problems at the v.a. facilities to try to help all these veterans. so what happened to our family and our son doesn't happen again in the future. >> sir, you and your courage here and your son a powerful testament this is a human tragedy that's happened at the v.a. and the systemic failures. tell us about the last time you saw your son jason. >> i saw my son the morning that he died, august 30th. i went down to take him husbais truck. he was going to come back home. he was there that weekend, and talked to him the night before, he was fine. and my -- i went down this morning on a saturday, with his daughter and his wife to take
5:54 am
him his vehicle so he'd come back home and, you know, he just wasn't right. he was slurry. just it wasn't him. you know? you know -- so i talked to the nurses and they said that, you know, they gave him some medication for a migraine. he'll be all right in a couple of hours and my son was laying in the bed holding one side of his head. and, you know, he just waved us on, we sat for a while with him. and then we left and then four hours later we get a call that my wife -- my wife and i got a call that he stopped breathing and they were trying to resuscitate him. it was probably the worst day of my life, for our family and, you know, i just felt so bad i left my son there that day. i never thought this was going to happen to him. you know, i never expected to get a call that he'd be passed away.
5:55 am
so, yeah, it was a hard day. i felt so bad for him because nobody was in the room with him when he passed away. you know, i would have never left him if i had known that would have happened. >> your story is powerful and chilling. in fact, you even said in other testimony that the doctor pointed at you and said you were part of the problem? >> well, yeah. one of the doctors, you know, just a few days before my son died i met with. and said that, you know, i know thousand build houses and pound nails but i don't know anything about taking care of my son. and, you know, i knew my son better than any doctor there. you know, i mean, he worked with us every day when he wasn't at the v.a. facility. and, you know what, it was just a bad situation all around. >> marv, what would your message be to bob mcdonald or the
5:56 am
message to the leadership of the v.a.? what needs to change? >> i think they should start listening to the veterans. obviously the veterans are the most important part of this whole solution. and start listening to them and hear what they have to say because, you know, they deserve top notch care. they deserve, you know, the best treatment possible. and i think that, you know, the veterans need to send a message and all of us do that, you know, too much prescription drugs is not the answer to the problems that these veterans are facing. you know, i think minimum amount of medication help more, and in my son's case, you can see what happened. overprescribing what does -- it leads to death. >> well, thank you for your courage and testimony. thank you for joining us today
