smartphones but be smart about them. don't have them right in your face. also, turn them -- turn down the intensity on the phones. use it at a lower intensity. >> you can dim the light on your phone, that's one thing, and use both eyes. >> thank you very much. >> that was a good topic. >> thanks, guys. brand-new national polls show hillary clinton hitting new highs against donald trump, but what about those key battleground states that both of them would need to win the elections? countdown to the opening bell. will the market role coaster over brexit continue? steve moore has the answers coming up. plus, fire and rain. the struggle to cope with massive wildfires out west and that widespread deadly flooding in appalachia. we are live from both deadly disasters. thanks for spending your
sunday afternoon with us. i'm shannon bream. >> what a lovely sunday afternoon. i'm leland vittert. welcome to "america's headquarters." hillary clinton is on the campaign trail, wrapping up a campaign event in new york then on to indiana. the trip comes as she launches a new ad blitz on leadership. the ads will air in key battleground states as new polls show the swing states are a lot tighter than the national horse race. mike emanuel on the ground in indianapolis where mrs. clinton arrives later this afternoon. mike, dot clintons really think that indiana is up for grabs? >> reporter: leland, indiana is an interesting story. you had barack obama win this in 2008, then mitt romney in 2012. hillary clinton has said she will compete in all 50 states and will be here later this afternoon. of course, a big issue today is that brexit vote in great britain and whether or not there should be some impact on the
election here in u.s. what conclusions can be drawn on fox news sunday hillary clinton's campaign manager offered this contrast. >> hillary clinton came out very quickly. obviously, said that the voters had spoken, but said that we need to make sure that middle class families' savings, hard-earned savings aren't affected by what happens. in complete contrast donald trump went out, talked about his golf course, all of the fancy plumbing at his resort. >> reporter: a new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll out today has hillary clinton with a five-point lead over donald trump. she had a three-point lead in the same poll just a month ago in may. now, of course, there's tremendous buzz about who clinton might pick as a potential running mate. perhaps the united states senator. perhaps a cabinet secretary or, perhaps, someone else. one of the people mentioned as a possibility talked about the state of the race today. >> we've got a lot of work to
do. her vision of america is a vision of we. we're stronger together. donald trump is all about me. and that's the fundamental difference between these two candidates. >> reporter: now, i am surrounded at this very moment by the nation's mayors. they've already heard from the dalai lama so far today. they've also heard from lady gaga. later this afternoon they'll get a chance to hear from hillary clinton. leland? >> what a list. mike emanuel live in indianapolis. thanks, mike. to see chris wallace's first interview with clinton campaign manager robby mook, stay tuned right after "america's election headquarters." "fox news sunday" airs at 2:00 p.m. eastern and 6:00 p.m. eastern as well. donald trump is home from his two-day trip to scotland. the latest polls are not exactly a warm welcome. two new national polls show him trailing hillary clinton. kristin fisher is following it all from washington. hi. >> hi. it's been a tough few weeks for
the trump campaign. he's down in the polls, hasn't raised a lot of money and his campaign is organizationally well behind clinton's. this morning trump's new campaign manager, paul manafort, said those kind of comparisons aren't accurate because you can't compare the clinton machine to trump's unconventional campaign, as trump said, when it's just getting started. >> we have hundreds, actually thousands of people in the battleground states who are now in place. we have state organizations in place. we have our campaign plans in place. we have our budgets in place. and the good thing is we have a candidate who doesn't need to figure out what's going on in order to say what he wants to do. >> well, there are two new big national polls out this morning. both give clinton the advantage but by drastically different margins. as you heard from mike emanuel a new nbc news/wall street journal poll has clinton ahead but abc
has trump ahead 51% to 39%. 64% say trump is unqualified to be president. trump just responded on twitter. he says, quote, the abc poll sample is heavy on democrats. very dishonest. why would they do that? other polls are good. both of those polls were taken before britain voted to leave the european union. ever since trump has been trying to tie that vote to this election by saying, he saw it coming. >> i really don't know if it does, but i got it right and hillary got it wrong and obama was wrong. obama was nasty when he said they get to the back of the line. that was a horrible thing to say. some people say they may have lost it for that reason or because of the so-called obama support. but they sort of get everything wrong, john. they get it wrong. they get it wrong all the time. that's part of the problem our country has. >> so, trump is now hoping those same anti-immigration, anti-establishment currents that helped britain get out of the eu
will help him get into the white house. we'll see what happens. >> we will. we'll break that down in a little bit. thank you. good to see you. more on brexit now. the first 48 hours of what could be the messiest and longest divorce in recent political history have not been so pretty. inside britain, some are having buyer's remorse over their decision to leave the eu and fighting continues over who will replace prime minister david cameron. benjamin hall live in london where the london stock exchange opens in 14 hours. people are buckling up for a pretty wild ride, huh? >> reporter: absolutely. it's political chaos over here at the moment. politicians pointing the finger at one another. european leaders trying to figure out how they should respond. of course, as you say, the hunt for a new prime minister is now on. the candidates for that have remained silent this weekend. scotland, however, has not remained silent. they voted overwhelmingly to stay inside the eu and they're now furious at the outcome. today the first minister, who
has said she wants to overturn the vote and is also mentioned independents for scotland, she lashed out. >> frankly, disgraceful. a time when the whole united kingdom needs leadership probably more than it's needed leadership in any part of the post-war, you've got the conservative party and the labor party completely abdicating responsibility. >> reporter: but today the leader of the opposition was far more busy dealing with his own revolt as nine members of his cabinet stepped down. if he was to fall just days after david cameron resigned, then both political parties might be leaderless. secretary kerry arrived in europe today ahead of emergency talks with european and british leaders. he was seeking to calm nerves in the wake of this vote. >> the most important thing is that all of us as leaders work together to provide as much continuity, as much stability,
as much certainty as possible in order for the marketplace to understand that there are ways to minimize disruption. >> and the disruption that he was talking about was reflected, as you said, in those financial markets across the globe. the pound slumped to its lowest since 1985. and the nasdaq and the dow also plummeted. tomorrow's opening will be closely watched. there is really two feelings over here. there is optimism on some parts but also a lot of fear. one thing, though, seemed certain. that is there is no going back now. very interesting months and years ahead for europe and, indeed, for the rest of the world. >> the markets never like uncertainty. more on that with steve moore coming up. benjamin hall, live in london, thank you, sir. with new polls showing hillary clinton surging, the trump campaign is hoping to capitalize on the decision to leave the european union. trump comparing that that sparked the brexit exited to his own campaign. is there really a correlation
that could benefit him? we have someone who knows everything and knows all the answer, fox's political -- >> so true. >> i know what you have to deliver. >> the sound of one hand clapping, exactly, yes. >> so, right away, there's been this reaction, oh, there was unrest, people are pushing back against the elites. they're telling us we're not going to do what you want to do. it's a donald trump theme. does that fervor help him here? >> that's not forget the difference between correlation and causation. is there a correlation between britain voting to leave the eu and donald trump's success in the united states? 100%, absolutely. you know why? because it's the same energy. and the energy is, we hate elites. we hate the credentialists, we hate, da, da, so it's this energy against those folks and also against muslim migration. trump talks very little about mexicans anymore and talks a lot about muslims. now he's trying to walk back his ban on all muslims and saying
only muslims from some countries, but still the emphasis on that. mass migration of muslims in the aftermath of the syrian civil war is a big driving force in the brexit because of the requirements for how many migrants britain was going to have to take. and on and on. >> open borders -- >> they're correlated. if i was donald trump i would be looking at the brexit to say, this is the same kind of thing that could work for us. but it's not causation. i think where people are making a mistake, this will not cause trump to do better or worse. it will not cause him to -- it will not affect his campaign. this is a sign, an omen, but it doesn't change how american voters feel about things inasmuch as as it is just a leading indicator for us to pay attention to. >> i'm going to start using my pocket thesaurus. i feel you. now let's talk about these polls. two new polls out, either way he's several points behind
hillary clinton. do you have a thesaurus in your pocket -- >> i don't but i did some very complicated, very high-end, as you can see, my graphics work here is excellent. but i looked at the kosher polls, the real polls, because there's a lot of garbage polling. there's online polling, robocalls, but of the kosher polling -- >> respected, recognized. >> recognized, that meet method logical, the four polls before the orlando attack was 2.5. i'm deficit was 2.5. in the four polls taken after -- wholly after the orlando attack, his deficit is 7.5. that's average. yes, the wapo poll has him down 12 -- "the wall street journal" poll. when we look at gate, the average, that's a five-point swing before and after orlando. i think that the brexit won't affect american thinking.
i think orlando affected american thinking. the thing for trump is this, he has another ten days to sort of pass the commander in chief test in the minds of the american voters. it's -- hillary clinton is not liked. people would like to have an alternative to her. i think there is a wide hunger among democrats and republicans, independents for something different. but trump has to pass the commander in chief test. and it can't be a referendum on him because if it is, you get that. you get the that. >> the math. >> that's what you get. >> so, there is a lot of talk about polling in key states, swing states, critical states that -- and you know, there's been talk in the trump campaign they were going to focus on key states they thought they could pick up. you can't do the entire country in all 50 states. you have to target your resources. will that work for him. >> it depends on if he's trailing by 12 or 3. if you're trailing by 12, go ahead and light your couch on fire and get a six-pack because it's over anyway.
>> is that what they do in west virginia? >> that's how they do it. well, it keeps you warm as you burn. but if you -- if you're behind by a few points, then i think for trump, it's very interesting. if you look at the northern tier, pennsylvania, new hampshire, maine, wisconsin, minnesota, iowa, there are blue state pickup opportunities for trump in states where you have large numbers of blue collar white voters. could that -- if he put together this great gambit, could he -- and certainly the only reliable swing state polling we've had, quinnipiac, shows him getting smoked like a ham in florida but it shows him competitive in pennsylvania and ohio. if you're trump, you say, basically donald trump has a choice. the republicans are trying to get him house broken, mainstream. they want him to be heeled. >> h-e-e-l. >> yes. that's what they want. they want him to run like a normal republican. i would argue there's no path to
victory that way but instead if he goes for independent, coalition, white voters, blue collar voters in the northern tier, he's got a shot. >> i underpromised you overperformed. always good to see you, chris. thank you. >> you bet. >> leland? >> the average american's 401(k) lost roughly $$2700 friday as te dow crashed on brexit news and as the uncertainty continues over what will actually happen in europe, so will the losses. steve moore here to provide some insight. we were up late together thursday night/friday morning. we knew the dow was going to crash friday morning. is there any certainty that's entered into these markets yet? >> hi, leland. by the way, you did a great job -- when was that, thursday night/friday morning. it's a blur to me now. but it's nail-biting time for those who own stocks and 401(k) plans and retirement plans about what's going to happen to our investments now. we saw the 600-point drop on friday. everybody's going to be paying
very close attention to what we open up on monday morning. so that's the short-term effect, though, leland. i still believe what happened with brexit is pro-growth, power to the people movement that i think is going to be good for the economy over there and over here. so, i expect that over the course of the next few weeks and months, the stock market's going to kind of return to normalcy, which means, folks, don't sell low. that's always a mistake. don't sell low into a panic. >> great economic advice. don't sell low. that would have earned me an "a" in my economics class. >> it would have. by the way, leland, it's surprising how many people violate that fundamental principle of investing. people do get panicked. when they see that market fall, their impulse is to go out and sell, so people end up -- that's a mistake, leland, people may remember during the big crash in 2008. everybody sold their stock. and then, you know, what happened in the couple years after that, the stock market shot up. so, if anything, i see more
buying opportunities than selling opportunities right now. >> you say that and it was barren rothschild who said, buy when there's blood running in the streets, even when it's your own blood. to that point, where are the buying points? where are the sectors that got crushed, in your opinion, unfairly? >> well, you know, if you look at transportation, energy, high-tech stocks. what i like right now when you get a period of crisis, look at the blue chip stocks. you know, the general electrics and the apples and the big that over time. again, it's just a time for people to be very calm about this. i wouldn't be surprised if the stock market in the course of the next three or four weeks returned to where it was. but the problem is we have another problem in the economy right now, leland, this i think is being camouflaged by what happened in brexit, which is, we've gotten some pretty bad economic news in the last month or so. we had -- remember, leland, we had the terrible jobs report for may. and then we had lousy first
quarter gdp number which was less than 1%. this didn't get much publicity on friday because of brexit but we got a lousy number for durable goods orders for business, which means they're not expanding like the marketplace would like them to. >> we'll have to see how that factors in. be onto politics, you're an economic adviser to donald trump, full disclosure on that point. but as we look forward on this, trump had some interesting things to say in scotland about the brexit vote in which he sort of bragged, if you will, that this was going to be helpful to him and to his golf courses and all those kind of things. at the same time, there were so many middle income americans he claims to champion that were losing money in their 401(k)s. was that really the right messaging from a presidential candidate? >> look, i think -- i think you're missing the broader point, leland. i think that what happened in england on thursday was really a vote -- a kind of of populous revolt, as new york post put it,
it was a power to the people movement. when you think about the broad themes of this campaign here, what is it really about? it's about trump really standing with a power to the people and hillary is the ultimate kind of political insider. and i think that's one reason there was some joy in the trump campaign, just by seeing what happened in england. and, by the way, the other thing, leland, wasn't it interesting that all the political pros were wrong. remember, when we started doing your show right when all the polls came in, i was as shocked as everyone because everyone said it was going to be voted down. my point is, a lot of times the political experts, all these people say trump can't win. those are the same people that said brexit was going to fail messerably. >> there was a lot of folks in the uk in cameron's camp and others saying, how did we possibly get this so wrong? and there was a lot of people -- >> you know how they got it right, leland -- how they got it
wrong? what happened, it's pretty clear in the last three or four days, a lot of those undecided voters, they all voted for brexit. you could see that kind of phenomenon -- you could see a situation where donald trump may be behind in the polls all the way up until election day and still win as all those undecideds say, i don't want four more years of this. >> 10% of folks in the uk were undecide in the last couple of days. steve moore, appreciate your insights over that overnight, long time together and today as well, thanks. >> thanks, leland. catch up on your sleep. the water is beginning to recede in west virginia. the state shifting from rescue to recovery after historic floods. we're on the ground in one of the heartest hit areas. garrett? >> reporter: shannon, folks are still going through remains to see what's left here. this creek bed is one of those places folks are walking through to see what's left after homes were completely washed away. ail have that video coming up.
and in california, it's a fast-burning wildfire threatening lives and property and stretching fire crews to their limits. will carr is standing by in lake isabella. >> reporter: hi there, shannon. as the firefighters continue to battle on the front lines, the damage numbers continue to go up. 150 homes destroyed. 1500 more are being threatened across this community and it appears that the number of victims are going to go up as well. we're going to have a live report for you coming up after this the break. sir, this alien life form is growing
at an alarming rate. growing fast, you say? we can't contain it any long... oh! you know, that reminds me of how geico's been the fastest-growing auto insurer for over 10 years straight. over ten years? mhm, geico's the company your friends and neighbors trust. and deservedly so. indeed. geico. expect great savings and a whole lot more. real is touching a ray. amazing is moving like one. real is making new friends. amazing is getting this close. real is an animal rescue. amazing is over twenty-seven thousand of them. there is only one place where real and amazing live. seaworld. real. amazing
devastating floods in west virginia have claimed at least 24 lives. the governor says all the missing have been accounted for in all but one county. now the focus returns to recovery. garrett tenney joins us with the latest. >> reporter: the search and recovery efforts are still very much ongoing here, but also for the most part here and across much of the state, it's gone to a clean-up and recovery mission for the folks here on the ground. this creek where we are right now is one of the most devastating scenes we've seen so far. this is how it normally is. it's shallow. three days ago it was clear up
to the road level. here this is a bridge that used to be here connecting the road to this home. when these flood waurlwaters ca was completely knocked over. what could take out a steel and concrete bridge? it was two homes and a car. the woman who lives here was standing on her porch and caught video of it. one home up against that bridge and another home smashes into that, followed by a car. that's when the bridge gave out. folks today -- this is some of the debris that's still left behind. they are going all up along this creek, searching through these piles for family photos, mementos, things to remember their loved ones by. one of these home is the men that died here just a few days ago. his wife we spoke to a short time ago. she said as she walked up and down this creek for a mile, she could see pieces of her home all along the way. every time she finds a piece, it
reminds her of her husband she lost. >> that is absolutely devastating. garrett, thank you very much for giving us the human side to that story and those pictures. leland? >> what a perspective. in california, it's the opposite problem. no rain and a severe drought make fighting a massive wildfire even harder. so far, two sdaed, 150 homes have been burned and firefighters are still in a losing battle. will carr is on the scene in what's left of lake isabella. hi, will. >> reporter: hey, leland. as firefighters continue to taken this fire, the damage numbers continue to go up. when you take a live look down the street we're on right now, you can understand why. for about a continue-block radius, every single street, every single home looks just like this. burned to the ground. there's charred remains, debris everywhere. so many people have lost everything here. at the same time, it's really a struggle for authorities right now to locate victims. on friday they found two bodies.
yesterday afternoon they found human remains. they're going to test those to see if those -- they found remains, i should say. they're going to test those to see if they're human. today because this is such a large area, they'll be out with cadaver dogs looking for more bodies. >> we literally have to go property to property and search each property. as you can see, this is just one area effected. look how many properties there are. they have to be inspected individually. now, we to have personnel to do that, but we're stretched thin. >> that's what's happening here in the streets, on the front lines. the fire is 10% contained. it's burned 37,000 acres. but the bad news is today the weather is supposed to be bad again. it's going to be hot. 103 degrees. there's going to be strong winds. of course, leland, it is bone dry here because this is a part of california that's been in that five-year historic drought. not helping firefighters out with the conditions. >> we heard from janice dean.
no relief in sight for those firefighters, for those folks there. will carr on the ground in california. thank you, sir. the supreme court set to release a potentially landmark decision on abortion tomorrow. ahead, our legal eagles debate the potential outcomes and what another tie decision could mean. >> unusual thing in that 4-4 ties are not unique and the court's working fine. justice breyer says this is no big deal. ook. i wish i had like four different mexican cheeses but in one super melty cheese. it does exist! you still have two cheese wishes left. what would help is simply being able to recognize a fair price. truecar has pricing data on every make and model, so all you have to do is search for the car you want, there it is. now you're an expert in less than a minute. this is truecar.
i felt like i got hit by a train; i did. first thing he thought of was ...how am i gonna to take care of my family? i did come across cancer treatment centers of america and i said oh, this place sounds awesome. when i got to cancer treatment centers of america, i got a great oncologist. also a naturopath, a nutritionist. they all worked together as a team to come up with a treatment plan designed specifically for me.
we believe in whole body treatment. and we have all those care providers here who communicate with each other to come up with the plan for the patient. i knew i was in good hands. it was that simple. at cancer treatment centers of america, we treat cancer, every stage, every day. it's not one thing we do, it's the only thing we do. i've got a new outlook on life. call or go to cancercenter.com. appointments available now.
tomorrow morning the supreme court will wrap up its term and that could include, we think, a key decision on a heated abortion case out of texas. joining us now to talk about that and more, elizabeth, president of the constitutional accountability center and supreme court advocate and former doj official, tom dupree. great to see you both. >> great to be here. >> we expect tomorrow is the
final day of the term. 10:00 a.m. we'll get opinions, people running out and it's always fun and festive but a very important decision. this case out of texas involves regulations that the state passed for abortion clinics and abortion doctors. opponents say it's about shutting down clinics. supporters say it's about medical standards for women. what do you think the court will say? >> well, i think in this case, as in many cases, all eyes are on justice kennedy. right now you have four pretty clear votes to strike down the restrictions. you probably have three pretty clear volts to uphold the restriktsz. justice kennedy, as often the case is the swing vote. if you looked at the argument, it seemed as though the court might be looking for compromise solution. one avoid way to avoid reaching the constitutional issue is send the case back to lower courts. there was a lot of talk during the argument about what impact this has on clinics, how many people are served, that sort thing. it could be the court is working behind the scenes to fashion some sort of compromise resolution where they basically punt, at least for the time
being, on the constitutional issues and send the case back for more evidence-gathering. >> there were a lot of questions along that line from justice kennedy saying, what do we know about this, would it be helpful to send it back? but what if we end up with a tie? what if he goes with the three conservative, four more liberal. where does that leave us? >> if we have a tie in this case it will be a dramatic example of the problems of having a mere eight-justice court. we're dealing with a fundamental constitutional right. the supreme court, including justice kennedy, has reaffirmed women have a constitutional right to sdern determine based on their own decisions with their family, with their doctor, with their god, when it is appropriate or not to have an abortion. and this law we see in and in other states really is trying to make an end-run around the constitution by shutting down the infrastructure by which women exercise that constitutional right. and if the court splits 4-4, there will leave in place a difference of opinion in the circuits below about how that right is enjoyed. and that means women would enjoy
their fundamental rights differently based on the state in which they live. that is not how our constitution works. that's not how our supreme court is supposed to work. >> there was discussion in the case about the gosnel case which i covered in philadelphia in which there were situations within that clinic that were rampant. it was unregulated, uninspected so he was convicted on murder charges, essentially the doctor in that case. but that conversation came up in this case. justice mentioned the clinic at the heart of this texas case actually had issues with regulation, with standards that weren't being met, that sort of thing. do you think that will be persuasive at all for some of the justices who say, maybe they do need these surgical standards and these other clinic standards that were passed? >> i think the problem is that as came up in argument, there simply isn't a match between the kind of problems we do want to make sure are addressed and safety issues we want to make sure are there for women and the regulations that are put in place. you have mainstream medical professionals saying that these
regulations are not actually needed for the health of the woman and, instead, they seem more aimed at shutting down abortion clinics and actually protecting a woman's health. >> i want to make sure we get to the other case we're watching. former virginia governor bob mcdonald and he essentially is facing jail time. it's over whether these gifts from a donor amounted to a quid pro quo exchange for any official action from the governor's office. i thought the governor had a good day, a chance he wins. >> i think he'll have an even better day tomorrow. i think the supreme court is troubled by what the prosecutors did here. in this case, they simply went too far. call it what you will, whether the governor's conduct was ill-advised, imprudent or unseemly, but at the end of the day it probably wasn't a violation of criminal law. i think that's what we saw coming through in the argument. i think that's what we'll see tomorrow when the supreme court resolves the case. >> because there's no question there were nice things that were done for the governor's family
but it seems to turn on whether there was that official action, him directing agencies to do anything. is this a place you agree? do you think the governor could win tomorrow? >> i agree with tom. i think the governor will have a good day tomorrow. i think it raises an interesting question about the supreme court's view of justice that the court has this narrow view of what corruption is. you know, is this very narrow quid pro quo idea. i'm going to give you a cartoonish sack of money in exchange for an actual vote. you know, i think there's a good argument our founders had in mind a much broader conception of political corruption, of improper dependence on something other than the votes of the people. so, i think this could be not just interesting for the governor, but also interesting for a view into how the supreme court views political corruption. >> well, we should know on both these big case tomorrow. migrants fleeing to u.s.
shores, that story just ahead. as the conventions inch closer, there are some really big questions for the presidential candidates, including, who's going to be the vp on each of those tickets? daily wire editor ben shapiro is here with his picks. that's next. >> we have some terrific potential candidates for vice president. the only people that say they don't want it are the only people that were never asked. they say, we were decided to turn down but there's nothing to turn down because they were never asked can last 4 hours longer than tylenol 8 hour. what will you do with your aleve hours?

we have less than a month to go until the republican convention. rumors and pressure continue to mount over possible vice presidential choices. while history tells us, vp picks don't win elections, many argue, this year could be different. since never before has the country had to choose between two people who are so overwhelmingly unpopular. ben shapiro joins us on the phone, editor-in-chief of "the daily wire." nice talking to you. start with hillary clinton and the dems. is there pick something other than the usual, a game-changer, if you will, to borrow the term from 2008? >> one would be for her to pick elizabeth warren. this would shore up the bernie sanders base. if she picks warren that shores up the base and presumably they come around her. she's been consolidating bernie sanders' support. unless she does that, she'll have a little tough time pulling away from trump. the other possibility of a real
game-changer if she went bipartisan, someone like john kasich and she asked john kasich to join her on the ticket, that would probably change the game in a significant way. all of of a sudden looks like trump is a radical and she's the bipartisan pick. she's going to draw republican support. with other major republican figures talking about moving over to hillary. if she picked someone from the republican instead of hard core left. >> almost the same discussion with john kerry and joe lieberman in 2008. anybody on the trump side that suddenly makes him much more palatable and pick up the deficit we're seeing in the polls? >> i think so right now he has a bit of a problem. if he picked someone to the right, then he would have tough time with the left. trump is a polarizing figure in
and of himself. it's hard to get behind him. if picks someone like gingrich, that doesn't change the game in a significant way. he could go out of the box and try to pick somebody someone who could double down, pick a democrat the same with clinton and kasich. my mind i don't think vps win elections. >> first rule, do not harm. we'll leave it there as your connection is a little bit questionable from l.a. next time you come back, hopefully we can get you in a studio that works out. thanks for joining us, ben shapiro from "the daily wire". tonight, do not miss the latest episode of "legends & lies," the continental army led by george washington went toe to
toe against the juggernaut british military but may not have been done without benjamin franklin getting the u.s. army ready to fight. still to come, the evangelical vote and donald trump what he's saying that is resonating with some christian leaders. >> i've had so much support. as you know, we've done well with evangelicals and religion generally speaking, if you look at what's happened with all the races. it's been an amazing journey. i think we won 37 different states. the support that i've had from you folks has been incredible. ♪ ♪ ♪ that's life. you diet. you exercise. and if you still need help lowering your blood sugar... ...this is jardiance. along with diet and exercise... jardiance works around the clock...

faith, freedom and the founding fathers are brought up a lot during an election year but how much of what you hear lines up of who they were and what their hopes are for the united states. it's the focus of "if you can keep it." the author metacks joins us now. >> great to be here. thanks for having me. >> the book is interesting. you go back to the history of the country, the roots of how it was put together and what the founding fathers thought about virtue, faith and what they
expected from the people who would come behind them and keep this unique experiment going. we have obligations. do we not? >> it's stunning. to me the reason i wrote the book is when this became clear to me what the founders required of the people, they said if you can keep it benjamin franklin said this is a republic, if you can keep it. it dawned on me a few years ago i had been reasonably well educated but i didn't know the basics of what the founders said we must know to be americans. not to be good americans, to be americans. i was embarrassed. i have to start talking about this and i said i have to write the book. i want it in the hands of every american. we need to know these things. we are no longer we the people. we are governed from above by, you know, a globalist overlord.
>> the constitution was designed so people could push back against things they as a group didn't feel were appropriate or weren't the path they wanted to take. you touch on a point that there is so much ignorance about the constitution and how it came together. there is misinformation, too. specifically often about the founders' faith and people who were saying that was never going to be part of the equation. you have evidence that would suggest otherwise. >> i'm telling you it's shocking. every one of the founders, read my lips, every single one of the founders, benjamin franklin, thomas jefferson across all said faith must be at the center of the american experiment. they all agree on this. not some of them. they all understood that faith and religious freedoms had to be at the center. i put it all through the book so
you can read the quotes. it's simple when you understand it. no one talked about it for 40 years. >> you were one of the people in the meeting with donald trump with evangelical. wanted to ask tough questions. you have been supportive. how well do you think he did handling concerns about religious liberties and other issues? i was astounded he understood this. jo expect him to be conversant in faith. it's not that i have been so pro trump. if we are not sincerely against hillary clinton becoming the next president.
she would bring about the end of democracy. all you need are a few more and you effectively have people legislating from the democracy. it's very funny. the people think one thing. they are trying and most reasonable people say it's not there. it's troubling. people are saying he's the nominee. we have to get behind him. he was there at the meeting the other day. the first few things he said, i was astonished. he said something about the 501-c-3 that people are afraid to be bold because they are afraid of losing tax exempt status. lyndon johnson said if you get political on the pulpit we can take away your tax exempt status.
it's tricky to tell people you can't talk about that. every american should have it on the bookshelf. >> i'll be on c-span today at 4:15. i know i can't say that. tape it and watch fox news. >> shameless plug! see you later. >> still to. co, a bike ride that would make lady godiva feel at home. there is a reason we are not showing video. why cyclists are stripping down and hitting the road. >> being naked is just like there is a lot of freedom. but that's the reason.
real is touching a ray. amazing is moving like one. real is making new friends. amazing is getting this close. real is an animal rescue. amazing is over twenty-seven thousand of them. there is only one place where real and amazing live. seaworld. real. amazing close your eyes if there are kids in the room. there is a reason this video is blurry. the world naked bike ride was in portland, oregon yesterday. cyclists took to the streets with little to no clothing on to raise awareness about how bikists are on the street. >> they are also vulnerable
riding a bike naked. >> road rash, all those things. we're out of time. >> fox news sunday is next. see you sunday. i'm chris wallace. a populist uprising in britain sends shock waves around the globe. if it happened there, can it happen in america? >> the british people made a clear decision to take a different path. >> one thing that won't change is the special relationship that exists between our nations. >> people see a big parallel. people want to take their country back. >> a possible running mate on whether to leave the european union could have parallels here at home. and an exclusive interview with hillary clinton's campaign manager on how she'll deal wit
