3:00 am
many other dads out there showing what they really think when they first see the baby coming out. thanks for watching "fox & friends first." have a great monday, august 1st. "fox & friends" starts right now. you good morning, everybody. it is monday, august 1st. i'm sandra smith. this is a fox news alert. it's happened again. another cop shot this time after a police chase in illinois. the officer is in serious condition we're told and the manhunt is still underway for the suspects. we will have the very latest on this for you. then, maryland in a state of emergency after being hit with historic flooding. good samaritans form a human chain to save a woman as the waters rise trying to get her out of her car. >> ready? >> all right. >> oh, man. what happened next. and is relief on the way?
3:01 am
we're going to tell you. then donald trump facing a firestorm of criticism. should hillary really be piling on. we look at the hypocrisy in the media. the story is changing by the hour. let's say every minute. that's why you need to watch "fox & friends." because your mornings are better with friends. >> welcome, folks. the first day of august. ainsley's taken off a couple of days. look who we have today. >> august. today is the 1st. >> yeah. >> whoa. >> we're back from cleveland and philadelphia. guess how it turns out, 99 days until election day. >> did you have to think about where you were when you woke up this morning? >> friday, absolutely. >> particularly last week after spending a week in a leaky tent in a parking lot.
3:02 am
>> back on our regular couch and back with heather. >> hope you all had a great weekend and enjoyed being home with your families. start out with a serious story and a fox news alert. a police officer is in serious conditions that the hour after he was shot in a high speed police chase. a massive manhunt in the area of carbon dale, illinois. they're looking for the suspect who opened fire on the officer. the suspect got car, sped off and fired multiple rounds back at the officer. we're following this as it still unfolds. now to some extreme weather. some say this looks like the set of a disaster movie. waters destroying a beautiful and historic city, ellicott,
3:03 am
maryland. a woman who was saved by a human chain. watch. >> i got her. i got her. >> [ bleep ]. >> simply incredible. that woman is okay this morning thanks to the work of good samaritans. the man that you see who's closest to your screen is using one hand to shoot the video, the other hand to help rescue her. he will be joining us later on "fox & friends" to share his experience about that rescue. now to texas where we have brand-new video and it shows the deadliest hot air crash in history moments before it burst into flames killing all 16 people who were on board. investigators in lockheart, texas, are looking into witness reports that the balloon was packed with too many people before it hit a website and plunged to the ground. the company's website it can
3:04 am
hold up to 24 people. the better business bureau had warned people about that pilot, skip nichols, on six different occasio occasions. reports show he was previously on drug and alcohol probation. the celebration not lasting long for carly hay. she sparked outrage for racist tweets that she had posted year ago. posts from 2013 containing the "n" word were found on her twitter account. hays admits to using that language. she apologized. through hard work, education i'm proud to say i am a better person today. she will get to keep her title and her crown at least for now. i'll see you back here soon. >> thank you so much. >> thanks, guys. >> can anyone fix the thermostat here? either that or would your' going to have to take our pants off. >> are we indoors?
3:05 am
haven't we figured this out? aren't you hot? someone is pouring water on the rocks this morning. all right. >> speaking of hot, let's make the transition to home some hothead lines. the numbers in the political world now. even some republican staff members are piling up on donald trump after kazir kahn spoke about how his son gave his life while serving in iraq. mr. kahn said at the convention that donald trump never read the constitution, he never sacrificed anything and then there was this where donald trump sat down with george stephanopoulos and he talked about the content. >> i saw him. he was very emotional. probably looked like a nice guy
3:06 am
to me. wife, if you look at his wife, she was standing there. she had nothing to say. she probably -- maybe spee wasn't allowed to say anything. you tell me. she was extremely quiet. and it looked like she had nothing to say. a lot of people have said that and personally i watched him. wish him the best of luck. >> what would you say about that? >> we have a lot of problems with radical islamic terrorism. that's what i say. >> a lot of people wondering did he cross the line with these statements? now making a statement on hillary clinton and the media and the hypocrisy that he is identifying there saying, quote, the loss of these lives in libya is directly traceable to clinton but their family's testimonials were rejected by the media. of course, brian, that goes back to when we did hear hillary clinton make direct comments to
3:07 am
those family members calling them liars essentially on multiple occasions now. >> the whole premise of this argument is false. donald trump never said muslims shouldn't serve in the military. donald trump's point was with the new immigrants coming in, we know nothing about these -- the muslims coming into our country but you've got to know what the hell is going on. he amended it to say wait a second, let's look at the territories where people don't have control of their population. they'll look at them. now all of a sudden george stephanopoulos throws this at this brand-new politician. he said many times muslims do great job. they're invaluable when they give their service. his most salient point was islamic extremists killed his son. it wasn't anything else. >> did donald trump have to say a thing about his wife? no. >> he said the wife didn't say
3:08 am
anything. we now know why. the wife was so grief stricken she felt she couldn't say anything. >> they lost their son but there is a double standard. the mainstream media is paying all kinds of attention to the kahn family and not to the smith family. shawn smith lost his life in benghazi and it was one week earlier at the republican convention where pat smith directly and personally blamed hillary clinton for her son getting killed ychblt wasn't this covered. >> she lied to me and called me a liar. i blame hillary clinton personally for the death of my son. personally. in an e-mail shortly after the attack hillary clinton blamed it on terrorism. when i saw hillary clinton at shawn's clothing ceremony days
3:09 am
later, she looked knee squarely in the eye and told me a video was responsible. since then i have repeatedly asked hillary clinton to explain to me the real reason why my son is dead. i'm still waiting. >> meanwhile, i was on the floor for that. i it not know no networks covered her. nobody covered those live but almost everybody covered mr. kahn's remarks live. >> there is a double standard it seems and yet hillary clinton when asked by chris wallace during his exclusive interview with her, he asked her about the benghazi victims and essentially he calls shawn smith's mother, pat, who you just saw right there, a liar. >> i don't hold any ill feeling for someone who in that moment
3:10 am
may not fully recall everything that was or wasn't said. i think there has been a confusion in the minds of some and exploiting that confusion for the advantage of others. >> experienced politician basically calling her a liar. if she comes out and says, oh, why, pat smith's lying. she's doing it in a nuanced, sophisticated, politically experienced way. >> we have yet to see how this will play out. do you see the hypocrisy? did donald trump cross the line? send us your tweets or e-mails. when it comes to debates, that's next. after the summer we are quickly going to have three debates. debate dates are all set. three plus one. donald trump's beginning to negotiate. like every other candidate, he's
3:11 am
not doing it behind closed doors. i have a problem with these dates, they conflict with the nfl. the nfl is going to get hurt and so aren't the ratings. >> the debates would help donald trump more than hillary clinton. >> sure. so donald trump wants as many viewers as possible. take a look, monday, september 26th. that is the atlanta/saints game. this he could have up to 20 million viewers watching on espn. he would like those eye balls. tuesday, october 4th is the vice president's debate. sunday, october th i believe it is the packers/giants game. trump wants to win wisconsin obviously. he would like all of those eye balls. wednesday, october 19th, they're having a debate because that's my birthday. >> they started planning this 18 months ago and there's a lot to incorporate religious events.
3:12 am
it's possible to avoid some. >> i would like morning show hosts to get together, matt lauer and company, and make it start at 6:00 p.m. it's too late to make it coherent the next day. >> you're about to hear from riens priebus and paul manafort. according to the dnc hack, hacked e-mail, hillary clinton plotted and planned to make sure they were on the least watched nights of the week. >> we're not going to be having debates on saturday and sunday nights. >> we discovered in the hack of the dnc, mrs. clinton likes low audiences with her debates r. mr. trump said i want a debate. i will do three debates but i want it to be the maximum. >> paul manafort on nbc it
3:13 am
sounded as though it was. >> confirmed people's suspicions. >> bernie sand s sanders didn't fight. donald trump will. >> he's fighting now. 6:13 here now on the first day of august. does donald trump need to apologize for his comments? we're going to talk to a muslim and former military leader next. here's a cool cop that you want hand out instead of tickets. bp wind farms are monitored 24/7 at our remote operations center, so onsite teams can count on early warning of approaching weather. because safety is never being satisfied. and always working to be better.

(vo) get nfl sunday ticket - only on directv. and watch live games anywhere. critics accusing the clinton campaign of exploiting a muslim war hero. donald trump is defending himself in an interview this weekend. >> i think i made a lot of sacrifices. i worked very, very hard. i've created thousands and thousands of jobs. i have raised millions of dollars for the vets. i'm helping the vets a lot. >> so how should trump have handled this? do you like how he's handling it
3:18 am
so far? with us to discuss is dr. zaruti. he's a former lieutenant commander. he joins us today. good morning, doctor. >> good morning. good to be with you. >> good to have you as well and your unique perspective. where do you think we are regarding this back and forth between trump and the khans? >> i have to tell you as an american muslim who served, i've dedicated my life, our conservative movement, the republican america that i knew and grew up in is better than this. i think that unfortunately our inaccuracies come from trump mixing muslims and it's giving the outlet to happen. when the khans did this, it was
3:19 am
political exploitation. they say, geez, this is a conservative idea they're talking about. about the constitution, american itching. theocracy. they stole them because we have been too busy. gold star families. i'd never compare my sacrifices to those who have given their life. mainstream media has been ignoring this issue and in light of the political system. >> he never said muslims shouldn't serve in the military. he never said they don't have a role. he never expressed anything but condolences for the khans. when they fired back, he responded. >> he should respond to the issue. there's so much fresh red meet
3:20 am
out there from islamic measures. they support muslim brotherhood groups in america. don't want to call jihad jihad. unfortunately once you have a gold star family, there are things that just we are above as conservatives and our candidates should. not criticize the mother. the sharia atmosphere where they're oppressed. to say that about a gold star family when she was a grieving mother really isn't the co conservative message. >> he called their son a hero. they came after me on the stage. shouldn't i have responded? >> remember mr. bush's response to sheehan, et cetera.
3:21 am
there are ways to do this before. a better way to do it than getting down to that partisan politics. >> thank you so much. we change gears. coming up next, the fallout from a war against cops. we tell you what's happening now because the cops fear for their own lives. if ynow's the time to get your ducks in a row. to learn about medicare, and the options you have. you see, medicare doesn't cover everything - only about 80% of your part b medical expenses. the rest is up to you. so if 65 is around the corner, think about an

some quick headlines this morning. threats targeting nypd officers over their own police radio. >> captain, remember how when you put me in jail. i'm out now and i'm coming to put a bullet in your head, son. remember, captain, i'm coming for you. >> police think the person is using a lost or stolen police radio and they're looking to track him down. the chilling threats coming weeks after three watt ton rouge

3:26 am
i'm done with the conversation. thank you. >> i'm done with the conversation. >> the minneapolis police department wants to protect officers from being set up, ambushed, but is the new policy putting officers' safety ahead of the publics. here we have bo dietle and joe sutton. joe, let's start with you. you think this requirement if we're going to send a cruiser so out, you have to give your name, you like the idea? >> i do. i think that minneapolis implementing this policy is just a way of trying to legitimize police calls especially in wake of all of the police ambushes in this country. i think it's a good first step. >> haven't you ever been in a situation where in this particular case apparently the guy was threatening people, he was going to, what did i say, he
3:27 am
was claiming he had stabbed someone to death, he was trying to fight with passer business. haven't you ever had a noisy neighbors and you wanted to call the cops and you go, what's your name? you're afraid to give your name because then your neighbor is going to hate your guts forever? >> first of all, police officers have the discretion whether or not they tell somebody who the complainant is. i have 31 years on the job, not 37, but we have that option. in fact, over my entire career i don't remember ever telling anybody, you know, who the complainant was because we do understand retaliation. we understand that. >> sure. >> so we say it's anonymous or we're keeping it confidential. >> okay. mr. dietle? >> you know, my feelings are from my time on the new york city police department in the '70s and '80s, we had numerous
3:28 am
calls to the police department, to 911 where people wouldn't leave their names. a lot of those calls led to the arrest and affected arrests. people are afraid to leave their names. look, i understand the other side of it also. when cops respond to a location they're well aware these things are going on as far as ambushes. to take that element away, i want people to wall. if you see something, say something. we have to ban together. i see both sides of it. cops have to come very close and respond. vicious things, domestic violence. they respond. you have to be aware of their surroundings. we know we're targets right now, but to take that away from anonymous calls, i'm he sorry. that's a very, very big thing to
3:29 am
do. >> the police department said we are asking dispatchers to get names so police officers won't be enticed to come to an area. in some cases they're simply not sending anybody out if they're not getting a name. >> that's not true. i spoke to several min knee app bow louse police officers. they're going to be sent. what it is is it gives them an opportunity to properly adjust their tactics or approach. >> that's good to know. >> joe, thank you very much. bo, i'll give you the last word. >> we've lost so many police officers this year. we're out there to serve and protect. we can't let up on it. i know it's a dangerous job to every officer. when they leave in the morning, their families don't know if they're going to see them again. we love cops.
3:30 am
we have to protect the public also. >> we have to keep them safe. joe and bo, great conversation. thank you very much. thank you for joining us on this monday morning. what do you think, e-mail us, friends at fox hillary clinton trying to woo bernie fans with the math. a fun day at the track sends a spectator to the hospital. we'll tell you what happened next. introducing otezla (apremilast). otezla is not an injection or a cream. it's a pill that treats plaque psoriasis differently. with otezla, 75% clearer skin is achievable after just 4 months, with reduced redness, thickness, and scaliness of plaques. and the otezla prescribing information has no requirement for routine lab monitoring. don't take otezla if you are allergic to any of its ingredients. otezla may increase the risk of depression.

fundraising. 14.6 million social media coverage compared to hillary clinton, 7 million. >> not all positive. >> not all positive. about the same positive/negative split. >> he earned his presence. you believe he was doing twitter before there was twitter. he was tweeting before -- >> it's interesting for somebody who's 70 years old, right? what he's known to do is he gets these newspaper clips and he writes in his black marker. he sends it in the mail. he's been honing this art of doing a tweet for decades. it becomes really useful. the interesting thing with tv advertising, what they're good at is a trigger. it puts you top of mind again and again and again. he's using social media for that. >> for tv ad you have to pay money. the day after hillary accepted her commit donald

>> all right. well there's just a little problem with the numbers. here to help be the bearer of bad news to bernie sanders fans, charles payne, host of "making money" and adam green, author of the progressive green campaign. what's wrong with the numbers there? >> just little bit odd, that's all. sort of water it down -- >> all right t 1% though. she's saying the 1% account for how much of all income -- 2012 she had one number. 2015 a different number. >> in 2015 it's 52%, but also, sandra, i do want to make the point. i think we get caught in the progressive argument either way. the 1% are not the same people and this is where it gets lost in the whole debate. it's actually to a degree a celebration of american success that that 1% tomorrow will include some kid who grew up
3:54 am
with nothing who probably just signed a baseball contract or a kid who grew up on food stamps and created an app called whatsapp. the number -- the people change and it could be a celebration of america. >> let's talk about the numbers though. when you look at the top 52% are earning the top 1%, you're look at different numbers there and hillary clinton is citing a number several years old and in her most recent campaign speech. >> so honestly i find this argument weird at best, a little more out of touch likely. if a regular person is not thinking about whether the huge majority of money going to the 1% is 50% or 99% which politifact itself called true last year, they're concerned about the money in their pockets. frankly, anybody who cares about
3:55 am
small businesses needs to be worried about this number. as much money in the top 1% is not being spent. >> what worries you about that? this isn't money just going to the 1%, right, charles? these are people who earned that money. many of whom by the way are big donors to the hillary clinton campaign. >> very big donors to the hillary clinton campaign. i knew that was going to be the response, hence why i tried to explain that. when we're looking at this, folks, it is a sign of american success and upward mobility. these numbers represent people and businesses that have coattails. they hire other people, employ other people, give other people stock options. this is not some scrooge mcduck sitting on a pile of gold in the vault. this is how the system works and for a couple hundred years it's been working pretty good. >> adam green, hold on, we want to get to the campaign donations
3:56 am
that are coming from the big money hedge funders. hillary clinton $48.5 million. donald trump raised $19,000 from that. how do you look at those numbers? what do you make of that? >> okay, well, first i want to say when you say this is how the system works, all of the voters who voted for donald trump and bernie sanders and many who even voted for hillary clinton want to change that system. so that the ceo pay is not 300 times what regular workers are getting. there's little bit of scrooge mcduck here. my group has said all along, given clinton's ties to wall street the burden is on her to show that she'll them accountable. if she said she'll break up the too big to fail banks that's a big down payment we need. >> at the same time, the new york times is reporting that the deep pocketed clinton donors are returning to the fore. we have to leave it there. >> good to see you. this is a fox news alert, another police officer gunned down during a traffic stop. the breaking details on that next. and floodwaters trapping hundreds of people across

4:02 am
sandra. it says a lot about how high about ohio is on the dry erase board of important states back at trump tower, that the republican nominee would return here less than two weeks after his party's convention ended down the road in cleveland. but today going to be our first chance see how trump's promise to make better trade deals plays with a general election audience. he's got a pair of rallies. first ohio, where he did lose the primary to the sitting governor, john kasich. then pennsylvania where trump won the primaries but republicans have lost every presidential election since 1988. we got a taste of what he plans to say on twitter over the weekend. when he wrote that, quote, the rust belt was created by politicians like the clintons who allowed our jobs to be stolen from us by other countries like mexico. and as the national polls do tighten, clinton is bringing in heavyweights of her own to help her out. over the weekend, mark cuban and
4:03 am
now warren buffett. remember president obama was pushing the buffett rule. and he thought it was wrong for buffett to pay a lower tax rate than his secretary. now buffett back in the arena and trump no doubt ready to respond. back to you in new york. >> all right, thanks, peter. i thought that chris wallace totally exposed that hillary clinton has no economic plan except raise taxes and build more infrastructure by raising taxes. that's not going to do anything for the debt and when people get on trump for his plan, i like to see hillary clinton's plan for growth. >> right. when -- yesterday when chris wallace said, well, more infrastructure, that's what barack obama did, she said, yeah, but he didn't do enough. so remember the shovel ready program that wasn't really shovel ready she wants to do a lot more than that. >> $800 billion. that that's a lot of money. >> she'll tout the rising stock market, but we know where the conversation goes. is the average investor
4:04 am
benefiting from that? >> i don't know what's real anymore. >> it's august 1th, monday morning. >> i know something real in politics, that's a firestorm, a number of mainstream media outlet, even some republican establishment members piling on donald trump because he was quoted on "this week with george stephanopoulos" yesterday after he was asked to comment on khizr khan who spoke at the dnc and he talked about how his son, a captain, gave his life while serving in iraq. since then, they have gone back and forth. they have shot -- they have been critical of each other. this is the sound bite that started it all. >> i saw him. he was, you know, very emotional and probably looked like a nice guy to me. his wife, if you look at his wife, she was standing there, she had nothing to say.
4:05 am
maybe she wasn't allowed to say anything. you tell me. many people have written that. she was extremely quiet, looked like she had nothing to say. a lot of people have said that and personally i watched him. i wish him the best of luck, george. >> what would you say to that father? >> well, i would say we have had a lot of problems with radical islamic terrorism. >> one thing trump said the mother didn't say anything and wondered why. we find out afterwards it was because she was so grief stricken. >> yeah. >> could not speak. >> we spoke to dr. zuhdi jasser, and he basically did say that the media has run away with this. but it's difficult when you go after a gold star family member. anyone going after them. listen. >> the mainstream media has been ignoring us reformists for years. been ignoring this issue and now in the height of the political season they're sort of co-oping
4:06 am
this. he should respond to the issue. there's so much fresh red meat from the islamic organizations that don't support our military, that don't support what we do abroad, don't support our missions against isis. don't want to call jihad jihad, but unfortunately once you have a gold star family, just as he made comments about prisoners of war, made comments about the vets there are things that we are above as conservatives and our candidate should be above. >> well, he's also inexperienced. i don't want to make excuses, but this is trump acting like on any single day. he'll sit there and say, this is what i feel. it got him the nomination but hurt him in the media. if you look at cnn, for example, top ten stories, seven are negative trump stories. four months ago, that was -- most of them were intriguing trump stories that like -- like got you cure use about what he
4:07 am
actually -- curious about what he actually meant about this. i'll add something to this. unlike hillary clinton and the benghazi situation he has nothing to do with the soldier losing his life in iraq. this is a hypothetical brought up by a parent. and donald trump said he's for muslims -- american muslims in the military. he's worried about the people coming in here because he sees france and brussels and everything else. >> sure. which direction is the campaign going to go? i think we now by what mike pence posted late last night on his facebook. he said captain khan is a family. he gave his life to defend our country. due to bad decisions by barack obama and hillary clinton, the myself is overrun by isis. suspending immigration from countries with terrorism problems reduces the likelihood that another family will face another heart break like the
4:08 am
khan family. >> that back and forth continues. we'll likely see more of that. meanwhile, "the washington post" is giving hillary clinton four pinocchios for claiming that james comey called her truthful about her e-mails during the interview. >> the director comey said my answers were truthful and what i have said is consistent with what i have told the american people. that there were decisions discussed and made to classify retroactively certain of the e-mails. i was communicating with over 300 people in my e-mailing. they certainly did not believe and have no reason to believe that what they were sending was classified. now, in retrospect, different agencies come in. well, it should have been. but that's not what was happening in realtime. >> oh, my goodness. so glenn kessler who does the fact check for "the washington post" said four pinocchios, as bad as it get, just not true. he did say when -- he said when
4:09 am
hillary clinton spoke to us, we believed she was truthful. but he also evis rated her -- eviscerated her in the run down. >> he said she was cherry picking her statements, comey said no evidence she lied to the evidence. not the same as saying she told the truth to the american people which was the point. >> remember, convenience. remember i wanted it for convenience. i don't know anything about a server. did i wipe it like with a cloth? >> oops. >> when i said the interview that of course is the exclusive interview with chris wallace on "fox news sunday" yesterday. you can check it out. it was very good. all right. well, we want to get to heath we are the -- heather with the headlines. >> good morning, sandra. good morning to you all. i hope you had a terrific weekend. we start off with a fox news alert. it's happened once again. a police officer in serious condition after he was shot during a high-speed chase. a massive manhunt now intensifying in the area of carbondale, illinois, for the

suspect who opened fire. just into the newsroom, chilling dispatch audio of the moments as they unfolded. listen. >> -- hit in the face. >> i have -- 26, going to the hospital right now. 26 is hit. >> well, police say that the officer was headed to the scene when the suspect got into a car, sped off and fired multiple rounds at that officer. we'll follow the latest on the developing situation as it unfolds. some say this looks like the set of a disaster movie. raging floodwaters destroying an historic maryland city and now two people are dead and more than 100 had to be rescued. as rain washed out ellicott city, maryland, just west of baltimore. a woman -- take a look at this. see this human chain that was formed to save a woman. listen. >> got her -- >> [ bleep ]. >> that incredible video we are

4:18 am
political tradition that is to say. it was a mistake for them to participate as they did. >> but is he right? here with us right now to talk about it is -- to get his perspective is fox news military analyst general jack keane. general, your thoughts about them -- both the generals who are friends of yours. >> yeah, they are friends of mine. i have tremendous respect for the both of them. you know, for their accomplishment and distinguished career. but i strongly agree with general dempsey. i do think it's inappropriate behavior and here's why. the reality is the united states military is arguably the most respect and admired institution in the united states. why? because it works. two, it's competent. three, the people in it are willing to sacrifice themselves to protect the nation. and four, it's nonpartisan, above politics. when we have retired generals who are only on that stage because of their association with that's teamed institution and because of their rank, i
4:19 am
believe that that can begin to erode the american people's confidence in a nonpartisan organization. also, an equally -- and equally important the united states military serves our national leaders regardless of their political perspective, regardless of their policies. they execute their policies. we do not want ever to have t t that -- to have those national leaders, civilian leaders ever look at the united states military as a partisan organization, having a political view. so those are very important tenets of this great democracy of ours. >> general, i know you have advised a number of republicans, i think you have advised at least one democrat running for president of the united states with the understanding that you would not endorse. where's the line? where's the line that you just shouldn't cross if you're a military man or woman? >> well, i mean, these are personal choices because we are american citizens and we have a right to speak. but also, i mean, you're

referring to -- you're not calling me jack. you're not calling me mr. keane, you're calling me general. because of my previous association with a remarkable institution and because of your respect for that institution, you're carrying my rank with me. as a result of that, we have to be careful about maintaining independence. for example on fox, i will not make any comments about any political candidate's views on anything. because i want to maintain that independence. how, six of them have asked me for advice on national security and i think that's actually -- i think i have a moral obligation given the importance of that office to provide that advice to them. but these are the ground rules. one, no endorsements, two, i won't support your compare, and three, i don't want any attributions. >> thanks for your perspective. you know both men, they near the

stays on that topic. not about him. but about voters and their anxieties. i'm just surprised that nobody has said to him, look, you want to win this race, you can win, but you can lose. you win by talking about voters, you lose by talking about yourself. it's simple. >> when you say that those -- that the issues got him the nomination but they're hurting him now because he told the truth, what do you mean by that? >> i mean that nobody else was willing to acknowledge that there was a real problem. that a lot of the policies did not benefit u.s. citizens first and foremost. that's the whole purpose of the government is to take care of the people who elected it and the people who run it lost sight of that fact. by the way, republicans to this day don't get it. they believe paul ryan among them that if trump loses we'll go back to normal. we'll be fine again. the republican party will start where it left off. but that's not true. this is a pivot point in history. everyone is focused on hillary's
4:41 am
deficits as a person, but she'll open the border, pack the str , supreme court, you won't have the same country. we're not going back to the status quo, period. if trump loses it's a new america. a lot is on the line, whether you like him or not. that's real. >> fair point. all right. let's talk about what's going to happen before the actual election takes place. a few debates have to happen, tucker. right now, trump is being very vocal, upset about the debate schedule. so i wonder if he has a point. i should say three of the four debates presidential debates line up directly up against nfl games. is that fair? they said -- they started to make decisions on this 18 months ago by the way. >> well, is it fair? probably not. but as i have related to my children, nothing really is fair. that's kind of not the point. i mean, i understand where trump is coming from. again, everybody in power hates him. we know this. that's baked into the cake. is that really the issue on which voters will decide?
4:42 am
no, it's not. it's about them. not about him. so to the extent he complains about it it will be seen correctly as whining and off topic. not really the point of this election. >> yesterday, paul manafort his campaign manager was on one of the show, tucker, and he said, look, according to the dnc hacks we know that hillary really wanted her debates with bernie to be on the least watched nights of the week and so then you see this and it's kind of like, well, maybe the fix is in or maybe it's just a coincidence. because there are so many out there. >> again, everybody in power hates trump. so i mean, you know, i'm willing to believe anything. but what's the right response? is the right response, they're shafting me. no, the right response is i don't care. i have a message that ordinary voters agree with and i will bring that message any place, any time and the strength of my words will prevail. that's what the strong candidate says. you don't whine about the timing. come on. >> you say, you know, you bring
4:43 am
up khan, listen, i heard him. i feel very sorry for his loss. move on. the story is dead. >> that's exactly right. don't rise to the bait. look, if trump is able to keep the conversation about the issues he's running on, immigration, trade, the middle class he will win 100 days from now. if he doesn't he will lose. >> tucker carlson, you're a busy man. thank you for joining us this morning, sir. >> thanks for having me. >> great to have you. >> good to see you. coming up a day after getting the miss teen usa crown, this girl is involved in a scandal. the tweets that came back to haunt her. >> the internet is forever. if you're looking to stretch your dollars on back to school supplies, get them right now. stick around for the best deals in august that starts today. i have asthma... of many pieces in my life. so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine. i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece

good morning. it is monday, august 1st. i'm sandra smith in for ainsley earhardt this morning and this is a fox news alert. it has happened again. another cop shot. >> 26 is hit, hit in the face. i have 26. we're going to the hospital right now. 26 is hit. >> oh. >> the latest on that officer's condition and the manhunt that is under way for the suspect in moments. then donald trump facing a fire storm of criticism for his comments about the family of a fallen soldier. but should hillary really be piling on?
5:00 am
maybe she forgot about the time she called the families of the benghazi victims liars. we saw that yesterday. her hypocrisy exposed, straight ahead. then, debbie wasserman schultz already got the boot from the dnc but this morning we'll tell you who she's taking down with her. she's in a tough fight for her congressional seat. let me just remind you, it's monday, it's august 1st and your mornings are better because you're with "friends." >> my sister kathy just is sent me a text. what is your co-host named today? >> oh, sandra smith is the name. >> there you go. any other questions, kathy? >> great to have you. >> thank you. >> you're outnumbered today. >> who's your man? >> i'm not going to reveal that today. >> i wanted to see if i could get you. of course, bret baier would break in at the 9:00 and tell
5:01 am
bill hemmer. >> of course we'll keep it a secret. >> you have been a lucky guy? you have been lucky? >> a couple of times. >> congratulations. >> two weeks ago at the republican convention. >> i saw that. >> always fun. >> we have it again, another controversy with trump in the middle of it that's overwhelmed other stories. this response to the gold star dad, who held up the constitution. you don't even know what this is. and he told other republicans go and condemn donald trump. here's trump in response with george stephanopoulos. >> i saw him. he was, you know, very emotional and probably looked like a nice guy to me. his wife, if you look at his wife, she was standing there, she had nothing to say. she probably -- maybe she wasn't allowed to have anything to say. you tell me. but plenty of people have written that. she was extremely quiet. and looked like she had nothing
5:02 am
to say. a lot of people have said that. and personally, i watched him. i wish him the best of luck, george. >> what would you say to that father? >> i would say we have had a lot of problems with radical islamic terrorism, that's what i would say. >> we know why the woman didn't speak, she was so grief stricken. regarding the last part, regarding islamic terrorism, trump tweeted out this story, this story is not about khan, but rather radical islamic terrorism in the u.s. get smart. what's going on here? >> this is a political problem. for donald trump. and just on the politics of it. it's the first answer that caused the issue because the previous -- the statements that came after that, now we're on the second statement from the trump campaign, start with captain khan was a hero to our country. we should honor all who have
5:03 am
made the ultimate sacrifice to keep our country safe. and mr. pence said we believe that captain khan is a hero and every gold star family should be honored by all americans. the problem is he didn't say that in the initial answer and you can make the equivalence to pat smith and the benghazi families. but the fact that he didn't say it in the initial answer is what caused the big problem. i don't think it's just going to go away. i think it is an issue. >> well, we have had other major stories. they tend to go away. we'll see what happens now. now that we're in the general. it seems as though he's not getting any leeway. do you see the big difference between the way the media handles the trump controversies now as opposed to during the primary process? >> big time. i mean, jump on them 100%. this one was seem -- it seemed like to cross some kind of line. we talked about it many times. things he's said have not been
5:04 am
affecting his campaign. the john mccain p.o.w. statement and other statements, but this one with a gold star family who lost their son i think crossed some line and that everybody -- it on the front page of every paper. i think media are going to cover it because it is a story. >> and there's a lot of talk about whether or not there's some hypocrisy being seen on the part of hillary clinton and her camp. when you look at the benghazi story and you look at the the family members that have been speaking out in particular pat smith what you just mentioned who personally blames hillary for her son being killed in benghazi, hillary clinton and now on multiple occasions has called the family members this one in particular, a liar. listen. >> she lied to me and then called me a liar. i blame hillary clinton personally for the death of my son. personally. and in an e-mail to her daughter, shortly after the attack, hillary clinton blamed
5:05 am
it on terrorism. when i saw hillary clinton at sean's coffin ceremony just days later, she looked me square in the eye and told me a video was responsible. [ crowd boos ] since then, i have repeatedly asked hillary clinton to explain to me the real reason why my son is dead. i'm still waiting. >> i don't hold any ill feeling for someone who in that moment may not fully recall everything that was or wasn't said. i think there has been a confusion in the minds of some and exploiting that confusion for the advantage of others. >> you know, bret, captain khan's parents are entitled to any opinion they want, but there
5:06 am
does seem to be a double standard to many where you've got both of these parents who lost their children. the khan story getting a lot of play and regarding hillary clinton being personally responsible as pat smith just said, not so much. >> you're exactly right. i mean, both of those -- those are legitimate points about the coverage, about pat smith and how she was treated after she gave her statement. at the republican convention. she's not the only parent at the time that recalled what she recalled hillary clinton telling her as her son's body came back. it's not like it's just her dealing with the emotion of the loss. you're right. and that equivalence is a fair point to make. but i will say that hillary clinton when she does talk about it usually inserts the line, i feel for their loss. i can't imagine their loss. some kind of preamble to saying that she's mistaken about what she heard. that is what was not in the donald trump answer at the beginning and that is what is in
5:07 am
the statements afterwards that they're making clear that they honor the sacrifice. now, donald trump can fight back when he's challenged by, you know, someone who's a gold star family. but it seems like the decency at the beginning is what is under attack or lack of it. >> as you know our colleague chris wallace, you know him better, your office is closer to him than us. he had a one-on-one with hillary clinton and he said that comey didn't indict, but was condemning in the way she handled her e-mail situation and it wasn't wholly truthful. here is hillary clinton's response. >> director comey said that my answers were truthful and what i said is consistent with what i have told the american people. that there were decisions discussed and made to classify retroactively certain of the e-mails. i was communicating with over
5:08 am
300 people in my e-mailing. they certainly did not believe and had no reason to believe that what they were sending was classified. now, in retrospect, different agencies come in and said, well, it should have been. well, that's not happening in realtime. >> i suppose glenn kessler said four pinocchios, what does bret baier think? >> it's not true, that's not what comey said. comey said she should have known what was classified. and she should have known. and what she -- how she describes it there is not what the fbi director said. so there is, you know, a big disconnect there and the fact that "the washington post" gives it four pinocchios is one instance where i think she is trying to reclassify, retalk about in a different way that whole experience. >> all right. bret baier, there in studio 1,
5:09 am
where he does "special report" each and every night. we'll be watching at 6:00. >> wait a second, is this the new set? is this the unveiling? >> i'm in studio 2 currently. but tonight, tonight we'll be in studio 1. >> all right. >> as i lose my voice. >> thanks, get some water. >> all right. see you then. >> yeah, new set. meanwhile, heather nauert, that looks like a new dress. >> yeah. i guess so. i haven't worn it before. >> everything is new. >> good morning. good morning. good morning to all of you. to a fox news alert and a serious story to bring you. it happened once again. a police officer in serious condition at this hour. after he was shot during a high speed chase. this is brand-new video that's just coming into the newsroom from that scene. a massive manhunt intensifying right now. in carbondale, illinois, for the suspect who opened fire on that officer. new chilling dispatch audio as the chilling moment unfolds. >> 26 is hit in the face.
5:10 am
i have 26. we're going to the hospital right now. hit. >> well police say that officer was helded to the scene -- headed to the scene when the suspect got in a car and fired multiple rounds at the officer. we'll continue to bring you updates. brand-new video showing the deadliest hot air balloon crash in u.s. history. just moments before that burst into a fireball, killing all 16 people on board. investigators in lockhart, texas, now looking into witness reports that the balloon was packed with too many people before it hit a power line and then plunged to the ground. they're also asking if anyone has video or pictures of that crash or the balloon in the air to help piece together exactly what went wrong. balloons don't have data recorders like planes do, so they want information to figure out what happened. well, this information coming in, we're learning that

5:12 am
well, he gave her speech a positive review and she made some, very, very good points. at least he stayed awake! those are your headlines. you have to give him some credit. >> right. all right. >> thank you very much. all right, well two people dead, hundreds others tracked beneath the deadly floodwaters. >> you have to! >> [ bleep ]. >> a live report from the middle of the devastation that you're witnessing right there, next. apple scrubbing all of the anti-hillary apps from the app store, but you can still play punch trump. why is that okay?

on this monday, august 1st, we have a fox news alert. raging floodwaters destroyed a historic city. two people dead. more than 100 rescued including a woman saved by a human chain seen in this heart-stopping video as the water was washing down the street. >> we got her -- >> you have to! >> [ bleep ]. >> that woman is okay this morning. thanks to the good samaritans
5:17 am
who made the human chain. >> ellicott city in maryland is looking like a war zone. bob barnam joins us live. >> reporter: hey, guys, good morning. you're not exaggerating to say this town has been destroyed. we have been moved up since we were with you 90 minutes ago so the people can do the work down there. this is main street and from this vantage point there's dirt and mud on the street. but as you round the corner and go down the hill that's what we showed you earlier. we can show you on videotape the utter devastation of this historic downtown area. they're saying that something like three dozen businesses were damaged or destroyed. it's got to be more than that. because it's just -- the parts of the street are gone. the utilities have been destroyed. the water, sewer, electric gas, all gone. so it's going to take months they say to recover. they don't believe that anyone else will be found dead. there's nobody else missing.
5:18 am
there were two people killed. 35-year-old woman who got out of her car and was washed away. 38-year-old man, she was from pennsylvania, he's from this area. just outside of baltimore. he was a 38-year-old man who stayed in his car and washed away. the young lady that was rescued, jamie knight, she's an ellicott city resident. the people in the human chain were some of the shopkeepers who were here saturday night when the six inches of rain fell in a two-hour period from roughly 7:00 to 9:00 on saturday night. catching people off guard and just basically taking the wet lands from here and raging it down main street through the city and wreaking havoc on this town which again has almost been destroyed and will take months -- many months, guys, to fix up and get it back to somewhat kind of a normal situation. >> well, we talked to one business owner earlier this morning who said they're just -- they had to close their doors. their business is done. three dozen businesses, that affects sometimes hundreds of
5:19 am
people. some of those businesses opened a very long time. bob, thank you. >> reporter: yeah, no street in front of their businesses. you bet. >> no kidding. thank you, sir. all right. straight ahead -- >> two retired generals backing two different presidential nominees and taking some serious heat for it. up next, we're asking taya kyle, widow of chris kyle, if she thinks the military should have a say who should become the next commander in chief. we're reliving '90s music this morning. sandra's favorite, shania twain. keep sending us the answers, we'll keep playing them. >> you know you love her. perhaps it is time we acquire a larger dwelling. but the mortgage process has proven to be challenging. not with rocket mortgage by quicken loans.

5:24 am
leave this race now. >> with her as our commander in chief, our international relations will not be reduced to a business transaction. >> but the former chairman of the joint chief of staffs martin dempster said retired allen and general michael flynn crossed the line. >> dempsey writing to "the washington post," the military is not a political prize. politics should take -- politicians should take the advice of military leaders but keep them off the stage. >> general keane doubled down and here with a different perspective, always great to see taya kyle, wife of chris kyle and a fox news contributor. great to see you. what's your reaction to this debate among officers? generals shouldn't be involved in politics, are you okay with that? >> well, when they're active
5:25 am
duty certainly they're not supposed to be. but they're retired. they spent their careers fighting for all of our rights to have freedom of speech. so i think once they're out, they should be the first in line to exercise their right to free speech. >> yeah, but when they do that, then they reveal perhaps their political leanings which, you know, they want to remain apolitical. general allen actually was on a little while ago, talking about how he agonized over whether or not to appear at the convention. here's what he said yesterday on "this week." >> it was not an easy decision for me to come off the bench, to make these comments. er i don't intend to remain active in this effort. i wanted to make sure it was very clear that i supported this particular candidate, hillary clinton, to be president and the commander of chief and i decry these comments that put us on the track for a civil military crisis. >> famously, there are some military leaders who did wind up running for office. eisenhower, grant, people like that.
5:26 am
but for the most part, they're the exceptions to the rule. >> yeah, we have had plenty of presidents who had military service and we always considered that experience to be very valuable and we listen to them more. so i don't see any reason why once you're retired again that you don't have the right to speak out. i do think though that you have to look at your own conscience and think if you are representing the facts as you know them in a truthful manner. i think that can be a little bit of an issue here. i think you bear some respond to be honest, have integrity because there are other generals who are sitting in on meetings that you don't want the president or somebody else to wonder if they should invite them in on the meeting if they're active duty to see if they'll criticize them later. i think you really as a military leader you have that right. i encourage them to participate in the democratic process. but i think they have to really be careful of the integrity and use -- >> all good points. you're saying the good news is look, everybody is passionate about the country.
5:27 am
everybody cares about the direction in which we're going. so in a way it's good for all of us, including the members of the active duty, you know, military members to hear from these generals about what their viewpoints are. >> i agree exactly. i just think the thing we have to be careful of they're attacking each other instead of the policy. i really wish people would stop attacking personally and stop overstating the issues. like a civil military crisis a bit of an overstatement, but at the same time, that's my opinion. i don't think we should criticize the individuals as much. i think a little between general allen and general flynn, this is a personal battle. i think we need to leave that out of it instead of attacking the politics. >> general flynn, a democrat. general allen a registered republican, it's getting ugly for a lot of people at that high rank. >> it is. >> thank you for joining us. all right coming up straight ahead, pope francis getting involved in the debate on being
5:28 am
politically correct over muslim. and a new ad from trump calls out bill clinton for sleeping during his wife's speech. is it a cheap shot or effective? hear from the experts next. >> quiet! she spent summer binge-watching.

5:37 am
>> why didn't chelsea wake him? well, while it might appear funny is it effective? to find out we're looking back at the craziest campaign commercials in american politics in what we're calling the attack ad hall of fame. here to take us through is campaign strategist, the founder of the strategy group company. good morning to you, rex. >> good morning, steve. how are you? >> i'm doing okay. so does a trump ad like that e one -- does that stick? >> well, i certainly -- it's fun and funny and those are the things that people do remember. there's not a more public stake than the convention. so to your -- to the question you asked earlier, is it fair, absolutely it is fair. >> let's go back in the hall of fame for attack ads. let's go to 1964. it was the race between lbj and barry goldwater. they ran it once or twice. the ad is called "peace, little
5:38 am
girl." watch this. >> ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one. zero. these are the stakes. >> okay. also known as the daisy ad. why was that effective, recollerex? >> clearly one of the most famous ads ever run in american politics. when you take the innocence and the sweetness of a little girl and juxtapose them previously of a rocket launch and then into the nuclear attack, that's something you'll remember. >> so was the implicit message if you give the nuclear codes to goldwater, the world is going to blow up? >> yeah. you certainly have the reassuring voice of lyndon johnson which is the personification of peace versus the foundation that they had laid throughout the campaign that this was a very risky choice and this is somebody who wouldn't be trusted to keep the
5:39 am
peace. >> meanwhile, to 2004, it was george w. bush versus john kerry. here's kerry wind surfing. >> in which direction would john kerry lead? kerry voted for the iraq war. opposed it. supported it. and now opposing it again. john kerry, which ever way the wind blows. >> oh, man. and famously during that campaign he was labeled a flip-flopper. that's it right there. >> well, obviously the electorate doesn't want somebody whose positions blow in the wind and this ad blew john kerry out of the water. the amazing thing this footage came about as a result of his own showing off for the press that he could wind surf. now, i don't know, but i think 99% of the people probably don't have the privilege to wind surf like john kerry does. so not only was it funny because of the flip-flopping and obviously the powerful visual to
5:40 am
tell that story, but also because it did demonstrate him as an elitist and out of touch. he should have tried bowling. beyond that, he certainly set himself up in this case. instead of being cool kerry, he became kerry the kook. >> and he's very rich. here's ronald reagan and walter mondale and the bear ad. >> there's a bear in the woods. for some people the bear is easy to see. others don't see it at all. some people say the bear is tame. others say it's vicious. isn't it smart to be as strong as the bear? if there is a bear. >> okay. who was the bear? >> well, at this point in our history, we were most concerned about the soviet union, so it's the personification of the threat of the soviet union. there are similarities between this and the daisy ad. i'm confident it was extraordinarily powerful. you have the person who actually wrote the script, hal riney, narrating it as well.
5:41 am
when you have the right sound effects and you have the theatrical quality of an ad and a message like this it works and it's extraordinarily effective. i'm confident the campaign manager of the reagan campaign, ed rollins, at the time had a difficult time to convince people to run it. >> sure. i have an idea, it's a bear. yeah, right. please. ed, sit down. it worked, reagan won the hugest -- by the hugest margin since 1936. something was working there. rex, thank you for joining us today. >> you're welcome. all right. 19 minutes before the top of the hour. a driver comes face to face with a tornado. what does he do? well, he casually backs up, of course. the video you have to see, coming up next. look at that. then president obama and hillary clinton used the dnc to talk about how great the economy is. what they didn't say will have you stunned this morning. it's about money. that's why we called in fox business network's charles payne. looking for balance in your digestive system?

and even seven years since the recession ended the economy has only grown by a 2% yearly rate, the weakest rate since 1949. charles payne hosts "making money" on the fox business network. he weighs in. what do we need to know? >> 2.1% growth to your point it's the absolute lowest since they kept these records. going all the way back to '49. you know, a lot of reasons for it. and i think that the main reasons of course president obama's policies. let's face it, he declared war on business. he's got regulations that cost over $100 billion a year in addition to doing business, he declared war on the coal industry. and as a result, we have seen a year ago the lowest number of entrepreneurs in the history of our country. so that sort of knee jerk business ethos we're going by, we're running on muscle memory right now. >> two weeks ago the rnc, the

i don't hold any ill feeling for someone who in that moment may not fully recall everything that was or wasn't said. i think there has been a confusion in the minds of some and exploiting that confusion for the advantage of others -- >> wow. despite much criticism, hillary clinton continues to stand strong behind her initial response to the 2012 attacks that left four dead in benghazi. hear to weigh in is the benghazi contractor and co-author of "13 hours," john tiegen. you may have seen the movie. what's your reaction to what she said to chris wallace yesterday? >> coming from her it's not surprising. i think she's talking about herself though not really anybody else. she seems to misspeak and be delusional about a lot of things
5:53 am
that's happened. when she's around. so, you know, just like the sniper fire in bosnia. so to me it seems like she's talking about herself. >> i mean, she's -- pat smith said when they -- when the advisory returned from libya, she said we'll find -- we're going the find the person who made this video. and now that was to pat smith and she's able to say essentially, i never said that, but i feel bad for her. so let's just let her -- let's let this whole thing lie. that outrages you. >> yeah. i mean, you know, we have met pat smith about a month -- might not have been a month, but the following year. like -- i don't know, anyways, she even said that hillary clinton said they'll go after the guys who made the video when we talked to her, after the book came out. we just kind of -- she knew that it wasn't a video. and we knew it. so, you know, like this is -- soon after the book came out, we got to talk to her. >> this doubles down on what hillary clinton actually said,

adequately protected. >> is the case closed now in america with this story? >> if you're a liberal, i guess. you know? but to me if you're -- i don't think the four guys -- i don'ty their lives are worth $7 million, i don't think they're worth $7 trillion. you can keep going. because there might be another four that end up getting killed because the state department and the dod doesn't seem to care to know what happened, how it happened, where our failures were. where our, you know, positives were. she didn't even call it -- yeah, she didn't call it a terrorist attack until september 21st, even though she said i was calling it the whole time, no, you weren't. >> you lived through it. go out and see the movie, read the book. thank you, john tiegen. does this guy look familiar? he's family. the story behind this picture next.
