3:00 am
senator marco rubio who will appear on video. tonight's other primetime addresses include eric trump, scott walker and former house speaker newt gingrich. speeches kick off at 7:00 p.m. eastern. we will see you back here on "fox & friends first" at 4:00 a.m. tomorrow but "fox & friends" starts now. driving people so that they can achieve their full potential. that's a great quality to have in a father, and better yet, in the president of the united states. >> this is a nation where every coin in our pocket and every bill in our wallet says in god we trust. so are we willing to elect someone as president who has as their role model somebody who acknowledges lucifer? >> hillary clinton has a failure
3:01 am
for ruining libya and creating a nest for terrorist activity by isis. ask me now, is she guilty or not guilty? >> we need somebody who believes in this country! we need somebody who's proud of this country and who will fight for this country! i know fighters. ladies and gentlemen, donald trump is a fighter and i know he will fight for this country! >> hillary has changed her positions on so many times it's impossible to tell where the conviction ends and the ambition begins. not since baghdad bob has there been a public figured with a tortured relationship with the truth. >> the next time there's a state of the union address, i don't know where joe biden or barack obama will be, but you'll find me right there with vice president mike pence and president donald trump. >> i've seen it time and time again, that look in his eyes when someone says it can't be
3:02 am
done. i saw that look a little over a year ago when he was told he couldn't possibly succeed in politics. for my father, impossible is just the starting point. >> what we did getting the party's nomination, i'll never forget it. it's something i will never, ever forget. ♪ don't stop believing ♪ hold onto the feeling ♪ street lights ♪ ooohhhh ♪ don't stop believing >> for donald trump and of course last night he made history, and speaking of history as we look at the huntington convention center, which is our hq, look there. the moon. history there as well. it was on this day, july 20th, 1969, that man first landed on
3:03 am
the moon. and speaking of history, donald trump made it official last night when they did roll call and he won. he beat all those other republicans. >> he did. and his son got up on stage, dynamic speech. and in that speech he said everyone thought my father would fail at business. everyone thought my father would fail at politics and look where we are right now. >> what i also thought was really special was the moment he went over the top. everybody knew it was just a formula. they were going to go out and officially go over the top. they were going to do it with new york. when don jr. did it, you saw the family behind him, i have -- that is a shot and that is a feeling, america loves family. america loves families that work. they like the inside story. that's why the reality shows work, from the ones you hate and the ones you love. that reality show is one i don't think you can get enough of. >> that's right. good morning. there is the train! >> there goes the 6:02. good morning, folks. welcome to "fox & friends."
3:04 am
>> why hit the horn? we already know there's a train on the tracks. >> the new trains don't have the same cloud catchers they used to. anyway, don jr., it was about 7:18 when he cast the votes from the great state, the empire state of new york for his father, and he made it very clear in his comments, that his dad wasn't just a businessman who made a lot of money, he was a man at the right place at the right time to help america with the tools he has used to get this far. here's don trump jr. >> i know that when someone tells him that something is impossible, that's what triggers him into action. when people told him it was impossible for a boy from queens to go to manhattan and take on developers in the big city, rather than give up, he changed the skyline of new york. i've seen it time and time
3:05 am
again, that look in his eyes when someone says it can't be done. i saw that look a little over a year ago when he was told he couldn't possibly succeed in politics. yes, he did. for my father, impossible is just the starting point. >> what do you think? >> i loved it. he went on to say, which of course is something that knowing my history being from south carolina, he said, we're the only children of billionaires that feel as comfortable on a caterpillar tractor as we do in our cars. >> that's right. >> i thought it was tremendous. listen, you said five conventions, i've been to three, four. we're going back to the tape. we know speakers. i think that is as good as i have heard because i don't care about your diction, your cadence, when you feel it and you say it, you forget that there's even a prompter there. i can't believe how good he was. >> yeah. >> i mean, he was extraordinary. >> he did a very good job.
3:06 am
the theme last night was get america back to work. one of the things that during the three hour prosecution really last night of hillary clinton they made it very clear including don jr., look, she's not going to work for america. just look at some of how she has deleted, key word there, our problems. here he is once again. >> we're going to elect a president who will work with everyone to pass legislation that will make our country great again. a president who will give us a tax code that will free the american economy and end special loopholes for the wealthy. a president who will give us an immigration law that protects american citizens and gives them jobs. a president who will repeal and replace obama care without leaving our most vulnerable citizens without health care and who will do it without destroying medicare for seniors as hillary clinton has proposed. a president who knows we can't simply delete our problems but
3:07 am
that we have to tackle them head on. >> very nice. i get it. >> yeah. >> we understood it. also, there was some people who say at a convention like this, tell me what you're going to do. don't tell me what the other person can't do, hasn't done or shouldn't be able to do. he got pretty specific on a few things on what he wanted to do in terms of taxes, building, motivating. that was an example. >> every morning we have the run down of who's going to be speaking every day. i was really exc hear from tiffany trump, his other daughter. ivanka, tiffany, the two girls. tiffany has not been in public at all. >> she's been in college. >> graduated from penn. this is tiffany on stage. she admits she's nervous. take a listen to this. >> he's always helped me be the best version of myself by encouragement and by example. he motivates me to work my hardest and to always stay true to who i am and what i believe.
3:08 am
that's what he does. he draws out the talent and drive in people so that they can achieve their full potential. that's a great quality to have in a father, and better yet, in the president of the united states. >> she said she saved every single report card that her teachers have given her over the years because her dad writes little notes. the grades are not necessarily the most important, it's what the teacher comments were. >> absolutely. so we heard from more members of the trump family tonight and we're going to hear some more from them tonight. >> just one more thing on tiffany before we move on. grew up 3,000 miles away. our goal is if you are in divorced families to make sure those kids -- i'll pick that up later or have one of my people do it because i don't do stuff like that, i just focus on myself -- by the way, velcro doesn't always work. but one thing -- >> that goes back to the moon shot. >> yes.
3:09 am
and by the way our flag is still up there? tiffany grew up 3,000 miles away you wonder if both parents are going to play a role. i look at ivanka and i think she was as proud as a parent. i think she has mentored her sister. >> half sister. she said she asked about her family in georgia a lot. >> georgia and out in los angeles. >> 3,000 miles away. >> so last night was not just about family but it was also about making a three-hour case reminding people that hillary clinton in their estimation can never be president of the united states. somebody who has examined her record for a couple of years is chris christie, the former federal prosecutor, lays out the case against hillary clinton. >> tonight as a former federal prosecutor i welcome the opportunity to hold hillary rodham clinton accountable for her performance and her
3:10 am
character. hillary clinton has a failure for ruining libya and creating a nest for terrorist opportunity by isis. answer me now, is she guilty or not guilty? that's an awful judge of a character of a dictator and butcher in the middle east, is she guilty or not guilty? as a coddler of the brutal castro brothers and betrayer of the family of fallen state trooper warner foster and his family, is she guilty or not guilty? >> guilty. >> let's face the facts, hillary clinton cared more about protecting her own secrets than she cared about protecting american secrets. >> lock her up. lock her up. lock her up. >> we didn't disqualify hillary clinton to be president of the
3:11 am
united states, the facts of her life and career disqualify her. >> okay. so there you have a little look at day two. let's look ahead at night three, which is tonight. you'll see a lot of it right here on fox. some of the speakers. our friend laura ingram is going to be taking center stage. also, governor, former rifle for donald trump, wisconsin governor scott walker. marco rubio is going to be there with a video address. senator ted cruz. it will be curious to see what exactly he has to say. will he endorse zplump. >> -- donald trump? >> right. you have newt and calest calesta gingrich. >> as a congressman, as a -- in the house and as a governor he's going to feel very much at home.
3:12 am
he was in attendance yesterday. i'm very curious to see what ted cruz will do. >> did anybody eyeball his speech? >> by the way, if he does eyeball his speech, he's sobriety he can memorize t shoot and go off topic. you don't know how angry he is after some of his surrogates were causing hay on monday afternoon. paul manafort was on. >> it was on the stage when they made the pledge to support whoever the nominee is for the betterment of the gop. >> that's right. >> so i think he probably will endorse tonight. wouldn't you think so if he's speaking? >> but at the same time look into 2020 because he didn't get it this time. >> right. >> one other thing to look for when you watch all of the action on the floor tonight, see how often people come up to each other and don't shake hands because the neural virus is sweeping through parts of the rnc. >> yikes. >> did you see that?
3:13 am
>> the virus? >> that's the one people get on a cruise ship. >> it's so interesting in soccer you have to shake hands in sports at the end of every game. >> right. >> when this was going on, everyone had the flu, everyone was doing fist bumps. >> it will be interesting to see how many people don't shake hands. thank you very much for joining us on this wednesday. >> a lot of them might kiss. >> on this historic wednesday with the moon shot today in '69 and of course with donald trump grabbing the nomination. >> that's right. >> ainsley? >> well, you saw all the rnc action unfold live here on fox news, but this is a view that you have never seen. >> oh, my gosh. >> brian takes us behind the scenes of "special report." >> and last night was all about nominating trump but hillary clinton got some air time, too, did you notice? >> hillary clinton is a risk america can't afford to take. >> how did that message resonate with the voters? lee carter has brand new dials from overnight. she's coming up the stairs.
3:14 am
we are not going to shake her hand. sorry, lee. ♪ ♪ take a look at these bbq trophies: best cracked pepper sauce... most ribs eaten while calf roping... >>yep, greatness deserves recognition. you got any trophies, cowboy? ♪ whoomp there it is uh, yeah... well, uh, well there's this one. >>best insurance mobile app? yeah, two years in a row. >>well i'll be... does that thing just follow you around? like a little puppy! the award-winning geico app. download it today.

3:18 am
lee carter put last night's political speeches to the dial test. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> first sound bite america is going to analyze, donald trump jr. talking about hillary clinton could not pass the test. >> if hillary clinton were to be elected she'd be the first president who could not pass a basic background check. it's incredible. hillary clinton is a risk americans can't afford to take. she says she'll issue executive orders to take away america's guns. she wants to appoint judges who will abolish the second amendment. just look at how effective those laws have been in inner city chicago. >> the republicans loved it but democrats hated that. >> they were on the floor. you couldn't even see them there. republicans loved donald trump jr., he had such a bang up night.

republicans gave him a b plus because not everybody loves an attack but they did agree with it. independents giving c plus and democrats giving an f. the thing everybody was so impressed with him. he was beyond the child of a politician giving a speech. he was talking policy. he was -- people were like let's get this guy on the campaign trail. >> what a family. meanwhile, chris christie from the neighboring state of new jersey to donald trump says here's the second sound bite, says hillary clinton is obama with less charm and more lies. >> we do not need to settle for less in this election. we cannot reward incompetence and deceit. we need to demand more than what hillary clinton offers for america because, see, we know exactly what four years of hillary clinton will bring, all the failures of the obama years but with less charm and more lies. >> all right, lee. you can see that, republicans, a
3:20 am
plus. democra democrats, an f. independents middle of the road. >> here's ben carson, he hates political correctness. do you? >> i hate political correctness because it's antithetical to the country and it asks people to sit down and shut up while they change everything. it's time for us to stand up and shout out about what we believe in. >> looks like democrats liked pcness. >> they do, a little bit more than the republicans and independents. republicans a, independents b democrats d. ben carson had a great night. >> looks like all the republicans did. >> absolutely. >> leigh, thank you for the dial treatment. >> thank you. meanwhile, what happens when brian breaks into the set of

the delegates on the floor erupted when they were voting on the convention rules and the chairman actually decided who won by who shouted louder. that's true. and they're deciding convention rules the same way they decide where to fire the t-shirt cannon at basketball games. who wants it more? who wants it? you want it? you want it? who wants it? you really want it?
3:35 am
it's here! >> i love it. we can all relate to that. we've all been at a game and they bring out that gun and we all want that t-shirt, that free t-shirt. make america work again, that was last night's theme at the republican convention. donald trump jr. ignited the crowd sharing how his father sees potential in everyone based on hard work. >> the potential that other executives would overlook because their resumes don't include the names of fancy colleges and degrees. i know he values those workers and those qualities in people because those are the individuals he had my siblings and me work under when we started out. that he would trust his own children's formative years to these men and women says all you need to know about donald trump. we didn't learn from mbas. we learned from people who had
3:36 am
doctorates in common sense. >> how did that message resonate with some of the nation's hardest workers? joining us now is doug brown who is a local coal miner. ryan kuzetelo who's a builder and a highway worker. thanks for waking up so early. we love your state. ohio has been wonderful. let me ask you about the blue collar worker. what does the blue collar worker want in the next president, doug? >> i think they want a leader, number one. opportunity. you know, if you look around over the last eight years, the blue collar opportunity disappeared and we want somebody to pull us forward. and i don't think hillary clinton offers that at all. donald trump's made a fortune in a lifetime out of working with people, building things,
3:37 am
employing people, running things. >> yeah. >> and i think he relates to people like us fellas here. >> right. right. ryan, what resonated with you last night? >> so this economy needs jobs. home building is a perfect venue. there are so many jobs that are created by home builders. what we need is we need some type of intervention with the dodd-frank bill. we need local people help with a&d loans. dodd-frank will not allow lenders to give us this money, these funds. we have so much private equity we can use. there's only so much of that. >> right. >> we need a&d loans and builders need business loans. i think donald jr. said it perfectly. there needs to be reform for the dodd-frank bill. he spoke perfectly and we think
3:38 am
he did a farntastic job. >> they were billionaires but their dad instilled in them that everyone is important. >> well, i think what resonated with the message was mr. trump understands is that to make this country great again it needs to be built on a good, solid foundation, which is what the people that i work with, highways, infrastructure of this country is crumbling. and i think he understands that we need to rebuild the foundation of our country through that heavy highway and through that infrastructure and put these guys back to work and keep them working so we can make this country great again. >> well, senator shelly moore is the first female senator from west virginia. she said in her speech that 60,000 coal workers in west virginia have lost their jobs during this current administration since 2011. i know as a coal miner that really strikes a cord with you. hillary clinton we saw in the primaries in west virginia, she said she wants to do away with
3:39 am
the coal industry. let's take a listen to the senator last night and i want to get your reaction. >> sure. >> these men and women take pride in their highly skilled and good-paying jobs that provide for their families and support their communities. they work tirelessly to power america. west virginia workers are the backbone of this economy and hillary clinton is promising to put them out of work? now, we shouldn't be surprised by this because hillary clinton understands coal miners and blue collar workers about as well as she understands secured e-mails. >> guys, what's your reaction? >> well, that statement she made made this personal. she's being brutally honest about her plan and what she wants to do and taking my livelihood, along with thousands of other coal miners'
3:40 am
livelihoods away, and, you know, they want to destroy an industry and we can't let them do that. >> which destroys lives, right, ryan? >> destroys lives, right. exactly. >> we don't take jobs away, we need to create jobs. everybody should have an opportunity to be able to work. i think that's wrong. everybody should have an opportunity. >> ralph, it's not just about the coal miner, it's about the nurse who takes care of the coal miner, the bus driver who drives the coal miner's child to school. >> it's a trickle down effect from the gas station to where they gas up their truck like you say all the way to the doctor who takes care of them and their families. she wants to not only, you know, put a whole industry out of work. she's going to be affecting other jobs. we need someone who is going to be creating jobs, not targeting industries and putting people out of work. >> doug, ryan, ralph, thanks for being with us. do y'all want to go get a beer
3:41 am
now? >> exactly. >> it's lunchtime -- >> somewhere. >> thanks, guys. we really appreciate it. >> thank you. >> thank you for having us and hosting us in this great state. there is no going back now. will trump's official nomination finally unite the party to beat hillary clinton? karl rove and joe trippy are hanging out there in the greenroom with bill remmer and geraldo. don't adjust your volume yet. this is how dana wise talks. listen to him. >> i know fighters. donald trump is a fighter and i know he will fight for this country! >> leighton is here with the hilarious social media reaction to the rnc. clayton? >> that's a little loud. dana, please keep your voice down. we'll have that and all the social media reaction from the quicken loans arena including speaker ryan having trouble using a hammer. we'll show you that coming up when we come back. ♪ ♪

3:47 am

3:53 am
he helped last night, but everybody has to help in this cause who stands in the leadership of the republican party and he set the right tone, but you have to keep following it through. we have 13 weeks and it's going to occupy considerable part of each one of those 13 weeks. >> i thought he was solid but only mentioned donald trump twice. >> carl and i agree on this, conventions are the start of the process of bringing a party together. when you had a knock-down, drag out the way the gop has this year, you're going to have these -- the bursts that happen on the first day of the convention on the rules. things are going to happen. it's a slow process. it could take all the way to november to actually get to 90, 100% unified. that's what we have to see. steps are being made. there's progress being made but there's still a long way to go to unify the gop. >> let's listen a little of paul ryan last night. >> everyone is equal. everyone has a place. no one is written off.

because there's worth and goodness in every life. straight from the declaration of independence, that is the republican ideal. and if we won't defend it, who will? so many things that we stand for in the ballot in this coming election. whatever we lack in this campaign, we should not lack for motivation. our candidates will be giving their all. they'll be giving their utmost and every one of us has got to go and do the same. so what do you say? what do you say? what do you say that we unify this party? >> what do you say we yun any party, start raising money and start supporting these guys? >> first of all, let's not miss the first part of that. everybody focussed on let's unify the party really important. but he also said he wanted to give substance and tone to the appeal of party unity. we stand for the declaration of the independence.
3:55 am
we're naul this together. >> you have to start hearing that from trump. he has a big play in this, comes from the top. he's got to reach out to start unifying the party too. the campaign has a tendency to push back and sort of -- >> exactly. >> create the division. >> great advice but only if you follow it. >> i'm waiting to see if ted cruz endorses. you? >> look, ted cruz is every single word of ted cruz's speech will be like everybody else's speech. it will have been approved by the trump high command. we'll have a speech tonight the buildup is the tension what is going to happen. it will be from trump's perspective a very good speech. >> this speech is critical to the next step of unifying the party. >> it's critical to ted cruz's future, whatever the future may or may not bring for him, if he is seen as a sore loser tonight in front of 10 or 11 or 12 million americans tonight, it's

disaster, which is a massive victory for trump. i don't know a single reporter, i don't know a single republican who was not predicting last week this would be a massive mess. >> because of protesters? >> yes. you would see the party fractured. by the way, the governor of ohio is not here. >> the rock & roll hall of fame with the other party. >> he is not here. i'm not attacking governor kasich, who is a successful governor, but nobody cares. it doesn't have any baring for what's happening here. it's a win not to fail here for trump. >> it's also a win for donald trump given the fact that america has taken a good look at his family. we've seen them in photographs. there's don jr. and ivanka and eric and tiffany. last night donald trump jr. made it very clear and he made the case for his family and his father in particular that while his dad has made billions of dollars very successfully, at this point in america what we need is somebody who has had the vision of donald trump and could
4:04 am
apply that to this country. here is don jr. last night. >> i know that when someone tells him that something is impossible that's what triggers him into action. when people told him it was impossible for a boy from queens to go to manhattan and take on developers in the big city, rather than give up, he changed the skyline of new york. i've seen it time and time again that look in his eyes when someone says it can't be done. i saw that look a little over a year ago when he was told he couldn't possibly succeed in politics. yes, he did. for my father, impossible is just the starting point. >> tucker, there were so many things out of this speech that were amazing. >> yeah. >> we can all relate to with our childhood.

4:07 am
original radical who gained his own kingdom. this is a nation where every coin in our pocket and every bill in our wallet says in god we trust. so are we willing to elect someone as president who has as their role model somebody who acknowledges lucifer? think about that. >> your thoughts, tucker? >> you were there. >> i was there. first of all, i have never in my life criticized ben carson and i never will. i am a ben carson fan boy flat out. as a general matter, we already know who hillary clinton is. nobody in america wants to vote for hillary clinton. i don't think bill clinton wants to vote for hillary clinton. people want an alternative to hillary clinton and i personally think the most effective way to run the trump campaign is by offering up to america him as an alternative. tell me more about trump. he is not insane. he is not going to wreck the
4:08 am
country. convince people of that and you win. hillary clinton is not an appealing candidate. even her staff acknowledge that. >> you're not for that theme? >> i think you can get counterproductive at a certain point. it can be characterized hillary clinton worships lucifer. no, she is much more uninteresting than that and beal. >> the way "the washington post" depicted last night's presentations, hillary enabled sex abuse at the hands of bill, accused the lucifer thing, the e-mail server, benghazi. really what it was a three-hour prosecution of hillary clinton and the stuff she has done wrong or illegally and the case was made by former prosecutor chris christie. here is a little of him. >> tonight as a former federal prosecutor, i welcome the opportunity to hold hillary rod ham clinton accountable for her performance and her character.
4:09 am
hillary clinton, as a failure for ruining libya and creating a nest for terrorist activity by isis, answer me now, is she guilty or not? >> guilty. >> that's an awful judge of a character of a dictator and butcher in the middle east. is she guilty or not guilty? >> as a cod ler of the brutal castro brothers and betrayer of the family of fallen stap trooper, foster and his family, is she guilty or not guilty? >> let's face the facts, hillary clinton cared more about protecting her own secrets than she cared about protecting america's secrets. we didn't disqualify hillary clinton to be president of the united states. the facts of her life and career
4:10 am
disqualify her. >> of course chris christie is preaching to the choir, but do you think that would sway independents and maybe even some democrats? >> you know, it might. i think again most people know this already about hillary. they don't want to have to vote for her. what they're saying is help me here. give me an alternative. i personally love the castro stuff. everyone where i live thinks that florida -- except in florida but in washington, d.c., it's so great. he opened up cuba. he betrayed the families of the americans murdered by the fugitives still living there. how can we strike a deal with the castros and not get those people back -- >> overall, day two significantly better. really strong day two. donald jr. the headliner, the guy that comes out maybe made the best impression? >> by far. i thought donald jr. gave probably the best speech i have seen here so far.

is depending on the special interest of the system to give her candidacy a boost. >> now, i know that we're expecting ted cruz to be speaking tonight. many are wondering if he is going to endorse donald trump. john kasich who also ran for president, he is the governor of this great state of ohio, he is not even showing up at the convention. and jeb bush, he's not there either. let's take -- show a sound bite of what happened on that stage right there behind you at that debate months ago when all these candidates took the pledge saying they would support. listen to this. >> is there anyone on stage -- can i see hands, who is unwilling tonight to pledge your support to the eventual nominee of the republican nominee. again, we're looking for you to raise your hand now, raise your hand now if you won't make that pledge tonight. >> mr. trump. >> well, we know he is
4:38 am
supporting himself. what about ted cruz? what can we expect tonight? >> well, ted cruz was one of the finalists in the primary process. we just felt he deserved a chance, an opportunity to speak at the convention. he had delegates that were elected which you saw reflected last night, unlike four years ago when the romney forces decided they didn't want anybody who had votes to show those votes in the final tally. anybody who earned the right to have delegates through the process should have those delegates reflected in the final tally of the convention. that happened last night. ciated it. he is coming here to speak. he has a message that resonates with donald trump's message, government is broken, that bureaucrats care only about themselves and that the american people are on a downward slide. he'll be talking about those things. those message are consistent with donald trump's. we're pleased he is speaking. we're pleased that governor walker spoke. that chris christie -- ben
4:39 am
carson spoke, chris christie spoke. we had a number of those 16 people who stood up here and honored their pledge and we're happy for them. >> okay. so far you've had -- you know, you gave last night a great night before mrs. trump, melania, we thought the speech was terrific and some people realized, wait, it seems like some of the passages from her speech were identical to michelle obama's speech years earlier. some have suggested the first draft that was handed in didn't have any of those passages. can you please, paul, explain what happened? >> well, i wasn't involved in the process. it was a collaborative process, what came in where, i don't know. what i do know is that melania trump feels that reflects her personal journey from slovenia to the united states to becoming a american citizen to falling into the love who she thinks has so much to offer to america. for people to say that was something that it wasn't, you
4:40 am
know, it's politics. it's hillary clinton. once again feeling threatened by a woman and trying to destroy her demeanor as a way of positioning herself. we don't buy it. >> it wasn't every network. paul, it was every network made that the focus instead of the eight hours of speeches that took place including her's. it seems like the networks are lining up against you guys. >> well, they were getting fed information by the clinton campaign. that speech reflected her values, not michelle obama's values. michelle obama may have similar values but melania trump was speaking from her heart about her love for her country, her children and her family. there's nothing wrong with that. there's nothing plagiarized by that. her message resonated in all of america. to disparage those remarks is just not going to work. >> well, joe biden and president obama have been accused of lifting speeches, too.
4:41 am
goes on both sides. >> it does. >> paul manafort, you have a very busy day ahead. thank you for joining us at the quicken loans arena. thank you, sir. >> thank you. >> thanks. she is an lpg star, reality tv show and now a republican superstar. >> we desperately need someone to clean up that mess, that person is donald trump. >> natalie gulbis joins us live. she is hanging out in the green room. what was your favorite day? what was your favorite thing about day two at the rnc? we're reading your comments. thanks for sending those in. we'll share them next.

good morning from cleveland. it is now 15 minutes after the hour. a couple of news headlines to bring you right now. a teenager accused of plotting a massive terror attack could be granted bail. 18-year-old allegedly wanted to attack government buildings and military members in tucson and also phoenix. the teenager whose twitter handle was jihad for life was willing to kill his parents if they found out about his plot. amateur detectives ever where about to get a new case -- >> 0-2. watch out that. got him in the helmet. >> we got our video a little mixed up right here. this is a story that you're
4:46 am
watching right now about angel's alex pujols who was hit by a 92 miles per hour ball in the face. >> i have never seen -- >> moments later he smiled and stole a base and the angels went on to beat the rangers. we'll get that video fixed next time, gang. >> very rarely when they apologize. i've never seen a pitcher run over and say, i didn't do that on purpose. >> sorry. >> the guy twice as big as you. you probably don't want to get him angrier. >> from sports to politics, it was an electric second night at the rnc. >> you have tons of fiery speeches drawing a lot of attention on our twitter and facebook pages and lighting up with many, many different -- >> that's right. that's why "fox & friends" co-host anna joins us. >> i have been following all of it for you guys. the twitterverse has been alive with reaction from the from the
4:47 am
past couple days. there's been a lot of praise for donald trump jr.'s speech. >> we're going to put americans first, all americans. that president can only be my mentor, my best friend, my father. donald trump. amy tweeting donald trump jr. was the best, not only was he compelling with whip-like energy and command of the room, he made it appear effortless. and governor chris christie also getting a lot of attention for his speech for calling out hillary clinton. >> now, she was america's chief diplomat, so let's look around the world at the violence and the danger today in every region that has been infected by her flawed judgment. >> bill writing three cheers for chris christie for doing what the law under obama failed to do. and some mixed reaction to dr.
4:48 am
ben carson's speech about his comments about hillary clinton and lucifer. >> this is a nation where every coin in our pocket and every bill in our wallet says in god we trust. so, are we willing to elect someone as president who has as their role model somebody who acknowledges lucifer? >> but lucy disagrees with dr. carson's word choice saying, quote, as i recall, let he or she who is without sin cast the first stone. hundreds of you are weighing in on our facebook poll. 66% thought donald trump jr. had the best speech of the night followed by chris christie with 23%. so we want you to keep on reacting because we're watching this and we will continue for the rest of this convention and also for the dnc. >> i was amazed for how low the marks for paul ryan. 3% of the people approved.
4:49 am
>> when he walked out on stage and said, wisconsin, i see you. got a lot of good reaction for that, at least. >> mitch mcconnell came out to boos, but by the end of his speech people were getting all excited because mitch mcconnell was making the case effectively for donald trump. >> donald trump jr. saying we've been working so hard for the last 18 months this is the most surreal moment of my life to see my dad get this nomination. >> he was the one that made it official last night. donald trump jr. on the floor of the convention center and he stole the show. >> our green room is filling up fast. all here to react in the next hour. plus, her resume includes pro golfing, modelling and now speaker at the republican convention. >> we desperately need someone to clean up that mess. that person is donald trump. >> and that person is coming on our show.
4:50 am
there is natalie. >> hi. >> nice to see you. >> great job last night. >> thank you. >> hi, natalie, you did a great job.

4:52 am
4:53 am
this is the greatest time to be a woman in the greatest country in the history of the world, i have no delusions that there isn't a mess to clean up. and we desperately need someone to clean up that mess. that person is donald trump. >> and that woman is with us now. that was lpga star model natalie gulbis teeing up donald trump,
4:54 am
explaining why he is the man for this country and guess what, she joins us now less than 12 hours after being on that stage. what was it like, natalie? >> i mean, like nothing i've ever been on. >> in what respect? >> just because i've been a professional athlete for 16 years, you play on big stages, but to be in an arena like that and to have the cheers and that warm welcome and, you know, also be in the setting that never been in a setting like that before. >> absolutely. >> the republican national convention is just -- it was amazing. and the adrenaline rush you get when you go on the stage and just the whole process has been really, really cool. >> congratulations on your career and being asked to speak. what an honor. >> what a huge honor. >> how did you meet donald trump? >> i met him in 2003. he is a huge golfer. he has not been shy about that. we used to have quite a few events on donald trump golf courses. the first time i met him was our tour championship in florida at his golf course at mar-a-lago and the top 30 players that qualify for the event, all the
4:55 am
players not only play at his golf course but we stay at his house. you see him at breakfast and driving on a golf cart around the golf course. he has been a person in my life since then. he's a big golfer. so that's definitely -- >> he is really good putter. >> obviously he liked who he met in you and invited you to be on season 2 of the aparen dapprent which you did very well at. >> thank you. >> for the people looking in, apprentice, you're fired, you're hired. why should america hire donald trump to be president? >> just because of his past successes at everything he's done. think about real estate, golf courses, business, look at the success he had in the republican primaries. he really is just somebody that when puts his mind to it, just like what his son said yesterday goes for it.
4:56 am
>> his numbers with women are not strong. hillary clinton is doubling him on that. what's your message? why do you have a different view than so many other women do? >> he has been such an incredibly positive influential person in my life. helped me open up the boys and girls show through that show, i raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to open up my own boys and girls club. he is one of those individuals i could always go to and talk to about the challenges i face as a woman in business and going against the status quo. he was somebody that has been that for me for the last 15 years. >> as a woman, i will tell you we just think the world of you and we love watching you play golf. very talented. >> thank you. >> as a man, we do, too. >> thank you so much for having me on. >> speaking of men, we have three real men. e of john roberts. >> this man playing the role of democrat and that man playing the role of republican all to meet natalie. >> that man is not biased. he is in the middle.

>> so they can achieve their full potential. that's a great quality to have in a father and better yet in the president of the united states. >> this is a nation where every coin in our pocket and every bill in our wallet says in god we trust. so are we willing to elect someone as president who has as their role model somebody who acknowledges lucifer? >> hillary clinton as a failure for ruining libya and creating a nest for terrorist activity by isis, answer me now, is she
5:01 am
guilty or not guilty? >> we need somebody who believes in this country. we need somebody who is proud of this country and who will fight for this country. i know fighters. ladies and gentlemen, donald trump is a fighter and i know he will fight for this country. >> hillary had changed her positions so many times. it's impossible to tell where the conviction ends and the ambition begins. not since baghdad bob has there been a public figure with such a tortured relationship with the truth. >> the next time that there's a state of the union address, i don't know where joe biden or barack obama are going to be, but you'll find me right there with vice president mike pence and president donald trump. >> i've seen it time and time again that look in his eyes when someone says it can't be done. i saw that look a little over a
5:02 am
year ago when he was told he couldn't possibly succeed in politics. for my father, impossible is just the starting point. >> what we did getting the party's nomination i'll never forget it. it's something i will never, ever forget. ♪ >> the cleveland browns get rg3. that's the president of the united states. >> that's right. live from the north coast of lake erie here in cleveland, it's day three of the rnc. we are delighted you are joining us and continue to make us your number one choice for cable one news. there you have the q. that's where tomorrow night donald trump will accept the nomination of his party that got
5:03 am
the official roll call last night. join us live in our world headquarters outside far screen right we have john roberts. good morning, john. >> good morning. >> we have joe trib by. >> good morning. >> and we have carl row. ou first question, i would like given something we heard in that sound bite ntage, carl, a year ago, what was the conventional wisdom, the odds of donald trump doing what he's done? zero. >> zero. >> joe in. >> i thought he would be in the finals getting here towards the end. i didn't think he would necessary bli the nominee. >> in other words, you're smarter than -- >> he did say that. >> and john? >> i don't want to be the one who is the contradictory person, the contrarian, but after what i saw happen in the mississippi senate race in 2014, i thought something is a foot here and i didn't believe all the nay sayers who said he will be out of this thing long before january. i'm sorry, gentlemen, i thought there was something here.
5:04 am
>> trump was talking about in the campaign over the last couple months, it's not just a campaign, it seems to be a movement. >> there's a lot of disaffected people who will all due respect to karl rove and many of his colleagues don't want to go the way that the establishment is telling them to go. they were looking at people like chris mcdaniel in mississippi. the only reason why cochran won there because they got a bunch of democrats to vote for him. there's a lot of disaffected republicans working class people looking for something different other than what the establishment has given them. we send these people to washington again and again and again and we're not getting from them what we thought. >> i have a slight disagreement with that. i don't think it was a reaction to republicans in congress. i think it was a reaction to barack obama. they were so furious with what he was doing that they were looking around for the person who promised to take a brick and throw it through the plate glass moment. donald trump caught that momentum. we would have somebody like ted
5:05 am
cruz screaming to the front because he was the most critical of the republican leadership in congress. i think this was more aimed in response to barack obama. >> it gets to why the party is -- so much of the convention is to pull the party together. because of the fight that happened, they're spinning a lot more of this convention attacking hillary clinton mostly to pull a party together, not yet broadening out and getting a positive, his son did a better job of that last night than anybody so far. >> he did come out of the gate and he said my dad grew up in queens. now you look at new york city, there's so many buildings with his name on it. now here we are in politics, no one thought he would do well in it. listen to what he said last night. here is a clip of part of his speech. >> i know when someone tells him something is impossible, that's what triggers him into action. when people told him it was impossible for a boy from queens to go to manhattan and take on
5:06 am
developers in the big city, rather than giver up, he changed the skyline of new york. i've seen it time and time again that look in his eyes when someone says it can't be done. i saw that look a little over a year ago when he was told he couldn't possibly succeed in politics. yes, he did. for my father, impossible is just the starting point. >> so, i mean, strong speech, as good as it gets. last three, four conventions got to be one of the top one or two. it came from the heart. he needs 65 million to win. so i know it's extraordinary what he's done, i think people are wondering what can he do to win it all? >> look, i thought that was a spectacular speech. i think one of the best if not the best so far of the
5:07 am
convention. but celebrating the success of winning the nomination is less important than taking that same trait that he was talking about, the ability to do the impossible and putting it in the frame of the general election because, look, let's not -- fine, celebrate for a moment the nomination, but the bigger challenge is winning the general election and describing donald trump's traits in that frame is more important than describing it as the reason that he got here. it's going forward that matters. >> the only thing we're hearing act is casinos failed in atlantic city. we need to hear about the buildings that worked around the world. >> or the policies that will change america. >> he spent so much of the primary pushing and dividing a way to consolidate his base, the trump base, that he's now spinning -- spinning the convention just trying to pull in the rest of the party. that's fine. they've got to do it. but they've got to by thursday night start that job of reaching out to the 65 million votes he's
5:08 am
going to need. that's a much broader coalition. >> do they realize that, john? >> i think they do. can they put it out to motion? >> shot out to donald trump jr. that is the best speech i've ever seen, especially from someone not in politics. here is what i think is really the crucial thing. obviously carl makes a good point about them having to get the policy out there, how he is going to make america great again not just the fact that he is. but those debates are going to be critical. joe and carl will remember very well what happened at the university of massachusetts first presidential debate in 2000 where al gore's body language was so terrible that he probably threw away the election that night. >> sure. >> donald trump has to be different in his debates with hillary clinton than he was with his 16 other competitors during his primary process. they have to hone his performance down to the point he can attack her without looking
5:09 am
condescending or brutish. >> chris christie was charged with prosecuting the case against hillary clinton. it was a good speech if you thought that hillary has done things over the line. if you missed part of that, here is a little bit. >> tonight as a former federal prosecutor i welcome the opportunity to hold hillary rod ham clinton accountable for her performance and her character. hillary clinton as a failure for ruining libya and creating a nest for terrorist activity by isis, answer me now, is she guilty or not guilty? >> awful judge of character of dictator and butcher in the middle east, is she guilty or not guilty? >> as a cod ler of the brutal
5:10 am
castro brothers and betrayal of the fallen state trooper and his family, is she guilty or not guilty? let's face the facts, hillary clinton cared more about protecting her own secrets than she cared about protecting american secrets. we didn't disqualify hillary clinton to be president of the united states. the facts of her life and career disqualify her. >> so carl, he's preaching to the choir as assembled here in -- is that effective in speaking to independents or democrats? >> look, he is not just speaking to the people here. remember, 56% of the american people thought she should have been indicted over the e-mail server, including 30% of
5:11 am
democrats and 59% of independents. he is not just speaking to the crowd here. i thought it was a good speech, particularly when it contrast it with christie in his keynote four years ago when he only talked about himself. it was a little too long. but it should have been on monday night. monday night was about national defense, keeping america secure about the world. i think monday night -- you need to make a turn at some point in the convention towards an optimistic tone. last night paul ryan hit it, but by thursday night the tone has to be we're all in this together. you're reaching out and reaching out to 65 million people, many of whom are independents, soft republicans and they want to know that you have an optimistic view for all americans. >> day three what can we expect, john? >> the theme is make america first again. it will be a lot of what donald trump has been saying on the campaign trail. eric trump will be the family member speaking tonight. i talked with him briefly
5:12 am
outside trump tower yesterday. he said he wrote his entire speech by himself. didn't you consult with anybody else, yeah, i did but i wanted to write it all myself. newt gingrich as well as mike pence and then of course some of the other candidates running, ted cruz. >> donald trump jr. was accused of plagiarism. >> the line he was talking about schools being in bad shape, serving only the clerks and the bureaucrats, people said that looks just like frank buckley's may column in the american conservative. frank buckley said, yeah, but it wasn't stealing because i wrote the speech. >> great. >> great job, guys. thank you. >> thank you. meanwhile, coming up straight ahead, what happens when i have a chance to break in behind the scenes, a special report.
5:13 am
what really goes on. were they happy to see me and why is brett's hair so perfect? >> exactly. we're jealous. plus, listen closely to this line from house speaker paul ryan last night. >> the chair announces that donald day trump having received a majority of these votes. >> did you catch that? clayton morris did and he is with hilarious social media reaction to that and so much more from the rnc. >> that's right. here at quicken loans arena, we'll introduce you to donald day trump and the real dernald trump. two new trumps when we come back. ♪ you know we said we'd take a look

"fox & friends" weekend co-host thinks it, it's clayton morris and he is tracking with his trending from the q. clayton? >> hey, guys. that's right. at the quicken loans arena. there's so much tech driving this convention. we had a hiccup last night and went viral last night. you see this big banner circling that red banner that goes around. it's filled with tweets and all sorts of information throughout the night because twitter is here. a parody account made it up there because people thought it was the real donald trump twitter account. turns out it was the real dernald trump. people caught that and said, no, that's not the real donald trump. you may want to take those tweets down. then of course speaker ryan had a few hiccups last night. he was calling to order all of the delegates last night and tapping the back of his hammer, the gavel, and flipped it around and hit the mallet side. people were mocking that a little bit. but he introduced donald trump this way. take a listen. >> the chair announces that

donald day trump, having received a majority of these votes -- >> who? donald day trump. it's donald j. trump tweets last night patricia tweeting this a man named donald day trump is in shock that he is now the republican presidential nominee. there were more tech problems. you were over here and see this giant screen up here, they flash different images behind the speakers the other night. kimberly brown was up there and they put up one of those weather green screens that weather forecasters will stand in front of. i bet online people have fun with that. i can't wait for the internet to make use of this accidental green screen. people immediately took to twitter to that and superimposed her in front of volcanos and la and have also lord of the rings imagery as well.

most fair and balanced shows in primetime, brian? >> i had a chance to go behind the scenes of the special report. it's really challenging, too, when you're in a live event at the rnc, i thought this would be a great time to go behind the scenes, so let's watch. >> there's no show with a better reputation. around the world, around the country than special reports. here at the republican convention, that's the place to be. that's the show to be on. let's go behind the scenes. >> and if you want to know what's happening on a special report, number one, you have to go on to the set. here is where the panel will sit. of course, you have the prompters. it is brett there himself. brett, great to see you? >> i didn't think you stayed up this late. >> i'm allowed to tonight. >> what's the challenge tonight? >> to know what is exactly happening on the floor with the delegates. we could have a dust up again. >> your mentor, the man who

5:36 am
course, is just now starting to join them because she just got out of college. says something about donald's character that they're so smart and so disciplined. i had a chance to read their speeches last week that they wrote. and i mean, then you saw last night, i mean, these are very smart people. >> it says something about -- exactly, how bright and intelligent the kids are for him to go to them for advice. normally that doesn't happen. the kids aren't giving the dad advice. but last night donald trump jr. as you just mentioned spoke. we'll play you a little clip of that. this is a clip when he goes after hillary and we'll get your reaction. >> we'll elect a president who will work with everyone to pass legislation that will make our country great again. a president who will give us a tax code that will free the american economy and end special loopholes for the wealthy. a president who will give us an immigration law that protects american citizens and gives them jobs. a president who will repeal and replace obama care without leaving our most vulnerable

get the nomination. i keep telling people, these guys -- all of these guys in the media have been wrong. they were wrong all year long. trump came along. now the same people were wrong all year told us their new definition. >> which is? >> that obviously hillary will win. if hillary didn't win, then they wouldn't have any fun. >> newt, let's talk about tonight. one of the key moments i think tonight because you talk about unification is ted cruz. you just told me something about ted cruz's speech no one has seen it? >> i think ted basically said, look, i'm an adult and i'm going do my thing and work with you guys. >> clint eastwood was talking to a chair the last time we had this situation. >> this is a slightly different environment. >> why would you allow an unscripted ted cruz? >> it's a big advantage for donald to have ted cruz on that stang. >> but you don't know what he's going to say. >> no, but i think -- look, cruz is a very smart guy and cruz understands he is very young by presidential standards. he has a very long future ahead
