3:00 pm
hall is being renovated but we will be back there next sunday. see you with the latest buzz. >> i am chris wallace. hillary clinton's first interview as the democrat nominee, only on fox news sunday. >> america is once again at a moment of reckoning. >> she hits the road on a bus tour of battleground states and then sits down with us for the first time in this can pain. >> you say you are the real change agent. you are offering tweaks, not a dramatic shift. >> clinton on voters not knowing what to make. >> american know what you thing, two-thirds do not trust you. >> and, the e-mails. >> yes. >> hillary clinton, one-on-one, it is a fox news sunday exclusive. you. and the e-mails. >> yes.
3:01 pm
with both conventions wrapped up, the race to november is on. >> i don't have to be so nice i'm taking the gloves off. >> we will ask our sunday panel where the contest stands, all right now, on fox news sunday. >> and hello again from fox news in washington, dc. with the conventions over and just 99 days left, the general election campaign is officially on. hillary clinton and her running make, tim kaine, are on a bus tour through the rust belt and we caught up with them yesterday in harrisburg, person, amid reports that russia has hacked into democratic party files even a program they shared with the clinton team. we sat down with clinton for the first time in the campaign and that is where we start. >> secretary clinton, welcome back to fox news sunday and congratulations. >> thank you, and it is good to be here. >> do you believe that russia is behind the hacking and release of the dnc e-mails and do you think that vladimir putin wants
3:02 pm
to devote you or see you defeated and donald trump el legged president? >> chris, here is what i think we know. we know that russian intelligence services, which are part of the russian government, which is upled the firm control of vladimir putin, hacked and the dnc and with know that they arranged for a lost those e-mails to be released, and we know that donald trump has shown a very troubling willingness to become up vladimir putin, to support vladimir putin, whether it is saying that nato would not come to the rescue of our allies if they were invaded, talking about removing sanctions from russian officials after they imposed by the united states and europe together, because of russia's aggressiveness in ukraine. his praise for putinch is remarkable. >> do you put that vladimir putin would rather see him as president than you? >> i will not jump to that
3:03 pm
conclusion but lay, out the fact, it raises serious issues about russian interference in our elections. in our democracy. we would not tolerate that from any other country particularly one with whom we have adversarial positions. for trump to encourage that and to praise pu testimony -- vladimir putin despite the deliberate effort to affect the election raises national security issue. >> trump after the backlash of his comments --. >> russia, if you listening, i help you are able to find the 30,000 e-mails that are missing. you will probably be rewarded we by our press. >> he said he was being sarcastic. >> if you take his encouragement that the russians shack into american e-mail accounts and you take his quite excessive praise
3:04 pm
for putin and lute allegiance to a lofts russian wish list foreign policy positions and his effort, then to try to distance himself from the backlash that came not.from democrats but republicans, independentses and national security and intelligence experts, that leds us again to conclude that he is not temper meantally fit to be president and commander in chief. >> you carved up trump pretty good in your acceptance speech. >> trump says he wants to make america great again. well, he could start by actually making things in america again. >> a man you can bait with a tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons. >> here is a guy who said is unfit to be president. why is this election so close? >> too many americans feel hike they have been last out and left hype by our economy, by our government, and i understand
3:05 pm
that frustration and frankly, even the fear that some people feel that it is just not working for him they are looking for answers. the kind of inflammatory answers that trump has provided, blame somebody, blame immigrants, blame muslims, blame somebody, that is attractive in the first instance to people who are looking for answers. what i am counting on, what i believe, he has offered nothing to help people. i believe we have put together an agenda to increase johns, increase incomes, make our economy grow and be more fair which is going to appeal to a majority of americans. >> good, because i want to talk not about trump but you and drill down into some of the positions you have taken in this campaign. at a fundraiser last year, you said this, the supreme court is wrong on the second amendment.
3:06 pm
now, in the 2008 hell are case the court said that there is a constitutional individual right to bear arms. what is wrong with that? >> i think what the court said about theirening an individual right, is in line with the constitutional think asking i said in the convention, i'm fought looking to repeal the second amendment, i'm not looking to take people's guns away but i am looking for more support for the reasonable efforts that need to be undertaken to keep guns out of the wrong hands. all the second amendment includes an individual right to bear arms. >> yes. but that right, like every other of our rights, our first amendment rates, every right that we have is open to and even subject to reasonable regulations. >> i want to pursue this because heller, justice scalia said the right to bear arms reasonably limited.
3:07 pm
and he let the door open to regulation. if you are elected president you are going to appoint the 9th supreme court justice. are you saying you do not want to see the heller decision, the individual right to bear arms overturned. >> no, i don't but here is what i want and i want to be clear about this, i want the congress to step up and do its job. i want to get out of the horrible cycle we are in where we go and mourn dozens, hundreds, thousands of people killed by gun violence, everyone says let's ray and send our hards and feelings. and nothing happens. we are better than this. the gun lobby intimidates elected officials. the vast majority of americans, including gun owners, support the kind of common sense reforms i am proposing. aon immigration, you say that you would go even further than president obama in deferring the deporting of people in this
3:08 pm
country illegally and you say in congress doesn't act, you would support we even tougher executive action. i want to ask you about separation of powers because the constitution is clear: all legislative powers reside in congress, it doesn't say in congress doesn't act, the president can do whatever he or she wants. >> let's sort that it because it is important. when it comes to immigration, i believe strongly that comprehensive immigration reform with a path to citizen help is not only good for people living up the shadow of deportation but good for our economy. i think this is on the must do list and i hope that after this election that the congress which voted in a bipartisan way in 2010 and 2013 to actually take action, they will come back and say, okay, let's do this together. >> in they don't --. >> in they do what gives you the right to do executive action. >> there is a lot of precedent,
3:09 pm
legal resident, about how presidents enforce the laws. let's look at deportation. whoever is president gets to determine what the priorities are. my priorities are deporting criminals, violent criminals as fast as we can, anyone that has even a possible link to terrorism. but don't go rounding up hard working mothers and fathers and taking them out of factories or the hotels or the homes where they are working, making them disappear and leaving their children alone. that doesn't make any sense to me. >> if you are talking about executive action that will affect not just a few people or 100 people, in i understand this, but it will affect millions of people, are you changing your law and writing the law? >> no, because here is what i think, the supreme court has sent become for trial the challenges to the president's authority to take cad goers of
3:10 pm
-- categories of people. >> as president you could make the justice who could break the tie. >> first, let's have the trial, that is true, i hope i will have that chance, it is not just that but citizens united, a lot of things that the current court i think got wrong, respectly, for our democracy. >> you would like to see those changes with your next supreme court justice? >> whoever is the next will appoint at left one or more supreme court justs. in are a lot of decisions i approve of by the court, such as marriage equality but there are decisions when take ton their natural conclusion, have hurt our democracy and undermined our economy. >> what about precedent? all the resolution -- is in line. i taught law i am a of cog lawyer. i know that resident is something that you look to but i also know that cores can take a look at resolution department
3:11 pm
and determine that maybe they weren't right the first time. >> you say you are the real change agent in the campaign but it is fair to say that you are building on the obama agenda, you not rejecting it, 69% of americans think we are on wrong rack and we just found out that g.d.p. growth in the last quarter was 1%, the slowest economic recovery since 1949. and you are offering tweets, not a dramatic shift. >> what i am offering are proven results. what i am offering is we can build on where we are, we dug ourselves out. i am not happy with the status quo, i have said that repeatedly. >> but you offer more government programs. more spending. >> let's look. >> more entitlements and more taxes, and penalties and credits. >> let's unpack that. what i am offering is the biggest job creation program since world war ii and i hope to
3:12 pm
be able --. >> but it is infrastructure. that is what obama did. >> he did not get to do enough or get enough support from congress. it took years under president obama to do something that we have roads, bridges, tunnels, ports, airports, water systems, all failing. all being less than efficient in a time when we want to lit our economy and take on the world. we need a new electric grid. that is government. >> it will be public-private sector. i am look for ways to start a national infrastructure bank creed seeded with federal dollars but bring in private investors. i believe america is ready for this because we feed to rebuild our infrastructure which will create millions of jobs and lay the foundation for many more millions to come. >> coming up, much more from our exclusive interview with secretary clinton. we asked her about benghazi and
3:13 pm
the e-mail and her biggest concern when she gave her acceptance speech. with usaa is awesome. homeowners insurance life insurance automobile insurance i spent 20 years active duty they still refer to me as "gunnery sergeant" when i call being a usaa member because of my service in the military to pass that on to my kids something that makes me happy my name is roger zapata and i'm a usaa member for life.

3:15 pm
3:16 pm
>> a look outside the beltway aspin penn state capital in harrisburg where we have the first interview with hillary clinton since she became the democratic nominee 69 perhaps the biggest challenge the clinton campaign faces now is trying to deal with the dows that millions of voters have about her honesty. we asked her about the key flash points: benghazi and her private e-mails. >> one of the most dramatic moments in the republican convention was when pat smith the mother of shawn smith win of
3:17 pm
those who died in benghazi stood up before the convention and blamed you, for her son's death. >> i blame hillary clinton, i blame hillary clinton personally for the death of my son. personally. >> she and the father of tyrone woods both say that on the day their son's daughters were returned to the united states, you came up to them and you said it was all because of a video, not terrorism. now, i know some of the other families disagree with this, and i know you deny it, my question is, why would they make that up? >> chris, my heart goes out to both of them. losing a child under any circumstances especially in this case two accident employees, extraordinary men, both of them, two c.i.a. contractors gave
3:18 pm
their lives protecting our country, our values, i understand we the grief and the incredible sense of loss that can motivate that as other members of families who lost loved wins have said, that is not what they heard. i don't hold any ill feeling for someone who in that moment may not fully recall everything that was or wasn't said. >> a reason that people questioned your account, and it gets to the important question of trust, is because that day at andrews you never talked about terrorism. you talked about the video. >> we have seen the heavy assault on our post in benghazi, that took the lives of those brave men. we have seen rage and violence directed at american embassies identify an awful internet video
3:19 pm
we had nothing to do with. >> that is not fair. if you go back and read everything that i said that day i quoted people would talk about itening terrorism, i had already said it was terrorism. there was no doubt it was terrorism. i think there has been a confusion in the minds of some, and exploiting that confusion for the --. >> i have a quote --. >> but look at everything i said barks, and this goes back to all of the investigations that were carried out, there were riots, there were protests, and there were efforts to breach our embassies --. >> but not in benghazi. >> we were looking at whole world, the whole world was aflame. all the e-mails. >> yes. >> i want to ask you about one aspect of them and that is what you told the american people. >> i did not e-mail any
3:20 pm
classified materials to anyone on my e-mail. there is no classified material. >> i am confident that i never sent or received any information that was classified at the time. >> i had we not sent classified material, nor received anything marked classified. >> after a long investigation, f.b.i. director james comey said none of the things that you told the american public were true. >> chris, that is not what i heard the director say and i thank you forgiving me the opportunity to, in my view crave. the director said that my answers were truthful and what i said is consist went what i have told the american people that there were decisions discussed and made to classify it tremendous actively certain e-mails. i was communicating with over 300 people in my e-mailing and they certainly did not believe and had in republican to believe
3:21 pm
that what they were sending was classifyied. different agencies come in, and they eight should have been but not what was happening in real time. >> in a congressional hearing on july 7, the director comey con that ticketed what you told the public. >> secretary chin torch said nothing was marked classified sent or received is that true? >> not true. >> essential clinton said i did not e-mail any classified material to anyone on my e-mail and this is no classified material. was that true? >> this was classified material e-mailed. >> directly contradicting --. >> i --. >> not only directly contradicted but also said in the hearing you are were extremely careless and negligent. >> well, chris, i looked at whole transcript of everything that was said, and what i believe is, number one, i made a mistake, not using two different e-mail addresses. i have said that and i repeat it
3:22 pm
again today. it is certainly not anything that i ever with do again. i take classification seriously. i relied on and had every reason to rely on the judgments of the revels with who will i worked. in retrospect people saying among those 300, they made the wrong calls. at time, there was no reason in my view to doubt the professionalism and the determination by the people who were every single day on before of our country. >> now, the clinton foundation and allegations of pay to play, the argument, the allegation that foreign companies and foreign countries either donated big money to the foundation or paid your husband big money for speeches in order to influence your work as secretary of state. in the first 12 years as he left
3:23 pm
white house, president clinton made 13 speeches he got $500,000 or more and 11 of those 13 were while you were secretary of state and they were all paid for by foreign interests. are we to believe that is just a coincidence? >> there is no truth to any of these allegations. >> but it is true they gave, they made the speeches, they were by foreign interests and he got much bigger speaking fees --. >> he gave speeches as soon as he left the white house, all the way up until the last year. and he spoke all over the world, as well as throughout america. to all kinds of groups. but let's get to the we not of your question. i'm really proud of the clinton foundation. i am proud of the work that it does. thanks to the clinton foundation nine million more people in our world have access to hiv-aids drugs because they negotiated contracts that maim them affordable. there is absolutely no
3:24 pm
connection between anything that i did as secretary of state and the clinton foundation so people can say that but i'm proud of our philanthropic work, our personal philanthropic work of the clinton foundation and i would like to see donald trump's tax returns to find out how much he has done. >> in your acceptance speech, you address people's continuing doubts about you. >> i get it. that some people just don't know what to make of me. >> forgive me, secretary clinton, but the americans know what they think of you, two-thirds of them dope trust you. >> here is what i know, chris: i have work to do to make sure people know what i have done and what i will do, that is part of what this convention was about. i feel very...comfortable the more people learn about what i have actually done, not the
3:25 pm
characterrure but the real deal they will understand why i was elected twice to the united states senate in the second time, with a 67% vote. why my former opponent, president elect obama, trusted me to be secretary of state. when i run for an office, my goodness, all of these things come out of nowhere and people begin to undermine me because when i left office as secretary state, 66% of americans approved. >> you do not think there is a legitimate reason people would have doubts about to use your phrase honesty and trustworthiness. >> it is fair for americans to have questions and i hope you ask donald trump why he is so untrusted by the american people. >> i v. >> i have a long record of public service i can point to that is actually produced results for people. when i talk about with i want do
3:26 pm
in public life and what i want do as president women can go back and say, she said she was going to get health care for america's children, she d eight million kids new have health care and their families do not have to worry about losing their house to take care of their sick kid. i am proud of my record and the results i have gotten to help people have better labors. >> 96 year since women got the right to vote. a couple of questions. has it emotionally fully sunk in yet, the barrier you broke, one more barrier to americans' full participation in the process and how emotional was thursday night for you? >> a it was why over-the-top emotional, my biggest concern going out there to make that speech thursday night was whether i could control my emotions. >> you say whether you could control your emotions. what was your concern? >> that i would start crying. that was my biggest concern.
3:27 pm
and watching my daughter and having her waiting on stage when i came out and...i was concerned about whether i would make it through the speech. >> you talked a lot in the convention about your mom and about her hard childhood and about her resilience and the lessons she taught you. i wonder in the last few days, have you been thinking of her and what do you imagine she is thinking of you? >> chris, i have thought about her, i think about her every day and particularly during the convention i thought a lot about her when chelsea got up to speak because she and my daughter were so close and i thought a lot about her when i talked on the stage to deliver the address and that was the part of the speech that concerned me the most, when i talk about my mom i get very...overcome. she wouldn't like what she saw at the republican convention where the outrageous things that
3:28 pm
were said and the kind of normalization of offensive rest risk in our politics, she would taught like that. she was a big fox viewer, i will tell you, and --. >> really? >> yes, she was. >> why didn't you take that from her? >> i said to her she would get upset, i will be honest, with the people you had on and say the terrible things about committee that is when i was a senator running for president and for the first twoery of being secretary of state and i wouldcy, well, month, in it upsets you why do you keep watching? >> i have to know what the other ones are saying so i can understand and be against it. she had a very strategic reason for watching and she said to me one time, why understand you were such a wonderful child to raise and you never gave me a minute of trouble or worry, then you become an adult and you get into politics and i worry all the time. so she would worry but she would
3:29 pm
be encouraging and she would say what she said when i was four, in the 50s a bully because, honestly, that describes my opponent, i feel i have to get out there, go back out there, stand up to him and not just on my own behalf because i can take care of myself but on behalf of all of the other people who he has so mistreated in this campaign. >> secretary clinton, thank you, thanks for talking with us. safe travels. >> thanks a lot. >> next, we will bring in our sunday group to discuss clinton and trump and what to look for over the next 99 days and what with you hike did ask the panel about where the presidential race stands now that both conventions are over. re the presidential race stands? go to facebook or twitter at fox news sunday and we may
3:30 pm
3:31 pm
3:32 pm
3:33 pm
>> taken the republican peter a long way, from morning in america to midnight in america. >> i thought she would give me a big congratulations. she did that, would that have been cool? >> hillary clinton going after donald trump at the >>adam: and trump disappointed she wasn't nicer to him. and time now for our sunday group, syndicated columnist george will, fox news political analyst, juan weapons, and julie pace who covers the white house and the campaign for the associated press, and g.o.p. have the gist karl rove. your thoughts karl about clinton and her strategy at the convention and in our interview? >> there is a tension in the attempt to conduct the kind of campaign she needs to conduct in order to generate the obama coalition and reach out to independents and republicans. we saw this in her speech and we say it in the interview. a big concern is the economy.
3:34 pm
at the convention she said obama doesn't get credit. but she turned and said we have all of problems, no pay raise, lack of social mobility, people are left behind, and here are my answers and they are, have another big stimulus bill, have clean energy jobs, like solyndra and have obamacare, we need free college, not for everyone but for anyone who make less than $125,000 a year and we need infrastructure banks. the kind of insider deal, using taxpayer money to set up something that private people can make money off of. how are we paying for it in the democratic national convention is in evening her the party much it is the party of willie sutton , and that is where the money is. we have 1% who is paying 38% of the tax burden, the highest
3:35 pm
rates for taxes in the country. this is what republicans hate and independents are dubious. anyoneally, the supreme court. when she starts tag about the supreme court it is what causes the republicans who are deeply suspicious of donald trump to rally to his side because she is talking about appointing a liberal justice to the supreme court that will affect everything from the second amendment to the environment to immigration, you name it, she wents executive power. >> there were some things, supreme court decisions she said she wants to overturn, like citizens united, and obviously she would like to see the court go in favor of obama on deport ing and deferring that. she said show does not want to overturn gun control and heller. >> i wonder about that, i went to her website and he is frankly incomprehensible on molt things as far as gun control. she makes several points. she wants to ban "military-style weapons." what are those? are they hunting rifles that
3:36 pm
have more than one cartridge? how does he do that? confiscate everyone who has an ar15? she talks of expanding the ability of trial lawyers to sue gun manufacturers that is benefiting a particular interest of the democratic national convention and a funder of her campaigns. and she talks of terrorist lists and no-fly lists. we have a bill before congress that has drawn bipartisan support. throw the support behind that. it is more on symbolism than real action. >> julie it is clear from the clip we ran about turning morning in america to midnight in america and the fact she sat down with us, that she is trying to reach out to independents and trying to reach out to republicans who could be disaffected or uncomfortable with trump. how much is the clinton camp couldn'ting on that? >> they look at the election and
3:37 pm
there is no doubt on her policies that she is much more in line with the obama coalition than with independents and republicans. you hear the phrase from the clinton campaign "permission structure." they feel like there are independents and republicans out this who are unnerve by the idea of donald trump being commander in chief but they are not going to wake up one day and like hillary clinton or align with her policies but they want to give a permission structure to lynn up and they feel a steady hand on foreign policy, a steady hand on commander in chief who understands military throats, threats from abroad, that could be what leads some of the people to line up behind her. >> we ask you for questions for the panel and we got this on facebook from joe writing "how does the panel feel about the democrats' actively pursuing traditional republican voters and independents disaffected by the trump effect? george as someone who is so
3:38 pm
disaffected by donald trump you are no longer a republic, how do you answer joe? >> a number of them. people who are queasy and looking for permission as they say to do this, i don't know how many there are. in 2004 the architect of the bush election campaign or karl rove said there were 7% you thought undecided that year. clearly you would agree this are many more than 7%. >> more than twice as much the largest number of undecided since 1892. this are some democrats and these are the democrats would wanted elizabeth warren to be her running mate, wanting to unite the democrats and win. the problem for republicans is, the difficult after the convention, the government released the statistic you cited in the interview with mrs. clinton, 1.2% growth in the second quarter. >> recovery at low of the since 1949. that would be the argument of
3:39 pm
donald trump but instead, he keeps getting in the way and the per season is what is making people queasy, mitt romney had an extremely united republican party in 2012 and he lost. when we talk about how many are involved here, 537 florida votes turned the presidency in 2000 so marginal different friends can make huge differences. mrs. clinton has to run against the argument that some conservatives make, the point of voting is to expression an opinion and not voting is an expression of opinion. >> so, big picture, juan, at the end we have had the republican convention in cleveland and democrat in philadelphia, where do you see this race? look at the mechanics of it, chris, if you are with rebuilding america now, the trump super pac, where are they putting their money?
3:40 pm
>> pennsylvania, ohio and florida. they think in they can get those states into the trump area they have a chance to win. we have seen this weekend, mrs. clinton, you springfield her in pennsylvania and she will go on to ohio, trump and pence, ohio and florida. we can see that is the focus right now. however, you look at ground and you see strange conclusions. trump's come pain has run no ads and mrs. clinton has run 30,000 ads. trump's campaign has 60 staffers and mrs. clinton has 600 staffer s. this is the difference as far as mechanics. you think of the states i mentioned, in florida hispanic vote is nowhere near going for donald trump and john kasich in ohio, the governor is strongly anti-trump. no republican has won pennsylvania since 1988.
3:41 pm
and despite the trump effort to move the base of the republican party from the south into the industrial midwest on the theory that the trade argument made by bernie sanders to get some disaffected white males to come over to trump, we have seen hillary clinton reaching out strongly to white women in those areas saying he is about family and kids. that was the theme of the democrat convention. >> california is -- karl is it that bleak for trump? and what would you advise him? >> juan has depicted the contrasts and style but there is a reason why the trump campaign is focused on florida, ohio and 15, if they win those and what mitt romney won they will go into the white house. pennsylvania is up for grabs, the democrat freeways of mine involved in the clinton effort agency the state is changing.
3:42 pm
since 2012 there has been 200,000 vote shift in registration in pennsylvania, away from the democrats and toward the republicans. similarly, in florida, since 2012 there has been a 300,000 vote change in registration toward the republicans and away from the democrats and a state that president obama won by 94,000 votes last time around. the states are going to be in contention. they will be in con distance because both political pairs are disrupted, the republicans have a problem with cling educated particularly women but also men and democrats have a huge problem with blue collar high school educated men and women and as a result we have the highest number of undecided since 1992 and why both political parties have nominees drawing less than historic average in their own pair's appearance much. >> you acknowledge . >> i agree with juan that the style of campaign and the fact we have unconventional campaign,
3:43 pm
that is based around personality, and based around the we persona and spends more time on twitter and his rallies it will be interesting to see play out. >> in 2004, director campaign in 2004 was instrumentsal in formalizing and organizing get-out-the-vote effort and in this is a close race in the under you have to give an edge to the clinton campaign because they have mechanisms to find the voters. >> we are stealing time from the next segment this is going to be the last conversation we have, 99 days. when we come back, we will look at some of the key factors in the race start this week, including a new controversy involving donald trump and the parents of the slain muslim american soldier. new controver

3:45 pm
3:46 pm
3:47 pm
>> donald trump painted a picture, negative, dark and divisive, of a country in decline. >> she make it sound like everything is rosy. it is not, folks. people are pouring across the border, we have no idea who they are. >> trump and clinton with two very different views of the safety our nation and we are back, now, with the panel. this is the way it works, obviously, the party that does not hold the white house will say thinks are going to hell in a handbasket and the party that holdses the white house say, well, things are not great but they okay and we will make them better. who is on firmer political ground, trump with the statement
3:48 pm
of pessimism or clinton, relative optimism? donald trump has the better argument to make because, for example, 40% of the american people think we are in a recession were we are not. that is what they think. >> they feel we are. >> they feel we are. the problem, neither of have an advantage on winning the argument, like what will you do? she has laid something out, but he has let to lay out something, and even if he does, lick a tax plan he carely campaigns on it. it is remarkable we have two presidential candidates neither of whom have confidence in modern sound systems and feel obligated to scream at every single opportunity, whether it is front of their conventions or their rallies. >> with both of them i feel it is a microphone. >> trump is involved in a brand new controversy, at the democrat democrat the father of a young
3:49 pm
muslim american who came to this country, enlist today in the army and was killed tragically by an i.e.d., a car bomb in iraq in 2004, he called out donald trump for his ban on muslims saying in it were up to to trump his son would never have been able to come to america in the first place and donald trump respond on "this week," on abc show. >> have you even read the united states constitution? i will gladly let you borrow mine. >> i saw him. he was very emotional and probably looked like a nation guy to me. his wife if you look at his wife she was stand there with nothing to say, she probably, maybe she wasn't allowed to have anything
3:50 pm
to say. >> this story is blowing up. >> it blows up because it is speaking to something that was emphasized by the clinton campaign, a sense of who something i think that was emphasized by the clinton campaign at their convention which is a sense of who we are, our w values at american people and mr. khan said going to arlington cemetery, you can see there people who are of all races, religions and creeds including muslims and then went on to add that mr. trump has sacrificed nothing, mr. trump as you know did not serve in the military, got several deferments from vietnam. buter then, mr. trump responds we saw in that clip by saying that the wife who was there in a head dress had nothing to say and may be restrained by her faith and told to have nothing to say and she came back and said she has trouble speaking
3:51 pm
any time the picture of her son, her dead son, is shown and that she's overcome by grief. i think that people on either side of the aisle, conservative or liberal, republican or democrat, knowing what mr. trump said about john mccain, a loser because he was a prisoner of war, a gold star mother, a woman -- i can't imagine losing my boy to something like that, that's unbelievable, but i'm not sure it's a game changer. we have been looking for game changers all along with trump. >> george, because, you know, trump made these kind of comments before, specifically as juan said back last summer, a year ago when she said that joh mccain wasn't a war hero. does it hurt him now in the general election? >> the straw that broke the camel's back did not break the camel's back. it was the cumulative weight, the question is will there be a
3:52 pm
critical mass o these things? just when you think american politics hit rock bottom, mr. trump rises or stoops to the challenge of saying there is no rock bottom of american politics and certainly attacking gold star parents is one of these things. his adherence have said from the first, from last -- from june in 2015 when he entered the race, he tells it like it is. it's never been clear to me what the ant see dant to the pronoun it is. today it's flaws of a gold star couple on there and then a minute we're familiar with. they call the offices of mcconnell and ryan and say what do you think of this? we disagree but he ought to be president of the united states. i can hardly wait to hear mike
3:53 pm
pence asked about this today or tomorrow what he thinks of the remarks. the good news is this. the point of campaigns is to give voters information on which to base their decision and they're getting a lot of relevant information. >> i want to try if we can get through two other issues and one of them, women. it was quite a moment thursday night. i felt it. i'm sure you felt it. for the first time in our history to see a woman on that stage accepting the cheerls of the crowd andn becoming the firt major party nominee for preside president. in case anybody missed the point, hillary clinton made it for them. >> standing a here as my mother daughter and my daughter's mother, i'm so happy this day has come. i'm happy for grandmothers and little girls and everyone in between. >> julie, how big an advantage does the clinton camp think that is, this sense, 'went saw it with barack obama, whether you
3:54 pm
necessarily agreed with him or not, the chance to make history, the break down another barrier? >> it is interesting with hillary clinton because i think in part because we have lived with her for so long in the public eye you sometimes forget that this is a t huge milestone for american politics, whether you're a democrat or a republican. and you've seen them slowly through the course of this campaign embrace that, culminating in this convention and such a headline of this convention. i think that for clinton, anything that she can grasp on to that creates more enthusiasm among the democratic base is to her advantage. that's one of her weaknesses, enthusiasm of democratic voters. if you talk to democratic women, some of these independent and republican women, particularly older swomen, mothers who liven suburbs, these are the voters she needs and seem to be most motivated by this. >> we had some more history this week with donald trump seeming to invite the russians to get into the presidential campaign, to try to find hillary clinton's
3:55 pm
e-mailsry and to make them publ. some democrats called that treason. some republicans called it wild overreaction. karl, where are you? >> donald trump's statement inviting the. russians to releae the 30,000 missing e-mails from her privateo server was a sign that sarcasm does not travel well on television. he would have been better off going different direction on that besides calling on the russians. he's now in a little bit of a quagmire and caught to get out of it by saying very clearly that what he was doing was making a joke, but saying that putting the issue back into the dialogue saying it is a question of whether or not she'd been honest and trustworthy with the american people. if he was smart he would use her words to indict her. she said that's not what i heard director i comey say. the rest of america heard it. not what she thinks he said and then said i relied on the judgment of the professionals
3:56 pm
with whom i worked. who is she blaming? who's the lawyer that authorized? who's the person that told her to set it up? who are the professionals? >> may i interrupt you for a moment? yount moved away from the topic- >> i appreciate the -- >> the idea that the american politician would invite a foreign government to become involved in our politics, karl, you know that's wrong and invites traitorism. the word traitor comes to mind. >> you would have heard me say he shouldn't have done it. >> absolutely. i'm glad that you're very clear. >> just like john kerry should not have accused -- >> here we go again. >> 30 seconds. george, just don't pay attention to them. you wrote a column about this.'t what do you make of trump's seeming affinity of vladimir putin? >> he was asked last summer of the evidence of killing journalists, he said our country does plenty of killing and trump
