3:00 am
a seagull got inside and attacked a shopper. it was found, yep, you guessed it, in the pet food aisle. >> they can be nasty. i've had experienced. >> you can tell us tomorrow. "fox and friends" starts now. good thursday morning to you and your family. it's august 18th. i'm ainsley earhardt. three olympians causing outrage as two are yanked from their flight to the united states. the big question this morning, did they lie about being robbed at gunpoint? >> kind of looks like it. >> you may be on team clinton now but he wasn't always. new comments surfacing of tim kaine seeing bill clinton back in the day when he was president was not fit to be president. so what's mr. kaine saying this morning? we're going to play the tape. wow. firefighters forced to remove american flags from their fire trucks. the reason? they're a liability.
3:01 am
the flags were. we're going to talk that because mornings are better because you have friends. how can you say because you have friends. how do you know they have friends other than us? >> they have us. that's all they need. we're all they need. >> i got you, babe. >> that's true. that was yesterday. sonny and cher anniversary show. they're bringing that show back, right? >> to replay it? >> they're not bringing sonny and scherbak but replaying them. >> i love those. >> happy thursday. good morning. it's the tail end of the weesk. we love thursday and friday. >> you always laugh at me because i count down. >> because you like your job so much, you shouldn't be counting it down. >> this is true. but we're closer to the weekend and we love that. >> the lead story covering the new york post. it's called watergate. breaking overnight. major developments in this case from rio where police are now investigating the robbery claims of 12-time olympic medalist ryan
3:02 am
lochte. >> two teammates hauled offer a plane bound for the united states just as they were about to take off. >> something is not lining up here. anna kooiman has been scrambled to help us out. good morning. >> good morning to everyone at home. brazilian police pulling the swimmers off a flight bound for the united states and reporters mobbing the athletes as they headed to police headquarters. a judge forcing them to stay and testify about what exactly happened after ryan lochte claimed they were robbed. we've also just learned another swimmer involved, jimmy feigen is cooperating with dhorts in rio. investigators say the timeline the four men gave police isn't adding up. pointing to this video obtained by the daily mail. they left the club at 4:00 a.m. but they were seen leaving around 6:00 a.m. and this video shows the four swimmers checking back into the olympic village just before 7:00 in the morning. the swimmers say they were too drunk to remember the details
3:03 am
about the location of the crime and lochte is now changing some parts of his story. this is what he told nbc the day after the incident allegedly happened. >> i was like we didn't do anything wrong. i'm not getting down on the ground and guy pulled out his gun. he cocked it. put it to my forehead. he said get down. i put my hands up, i was like whatever. >> lochte telling nbc last night their cab wasn't actually pulled over. instead, they were ambushed while stopped at a gas station and that the gun was only pointed in his general direction not directly on hi forehead. authorities had called on lochte to stay in the country. but he's back in the united states posting this photo to snapchat on solid ground in the u.s. his lawyer saying lochte will not return for questioning. the other three swimmers are expected to give their testimony today. ainsley, brian and steve. >> now you understand why it's called watergate.
3:04 am
>> the details are fishy. but we have to remember, these are olympic -- some of them medalists. we don't want to point any fingers. >> they didn't want the story to get out. >> they didn't. that's how i was going to start. the reason we know about in story is because ryan lochte's mother was being interviewed on sunday morning and said, you know, my son told me last night that he was robbed at gunpoint. and that's where the story got started. then when the judge saw this stuff where ryan lochte is play fi hitting one of the guys in the head with credentials. you can also in this video, you can see watches and cell phones and at least one wallet, those are the things that supposedly they were robbed of. >> go ahead. >> here's why it's a -- rio has all type of negative publicity about the security. we hear all these things about brazil and how they're not ready and everything like that. they were on pins and needles
3:05 am
because the whole world is watching. so far there's been incidents but not nearly as many. so if this happens, these high-profile american athletes are robbed by people posing as officers, then it begins to crater. the whole thing could spiral out of control and the successful olympics which seem to be coming off could take a negative tone. when necessity look at the story and turns out there's nothing there, you're causing us a national embarrassment. we find out you made it up. >> they want to find out the answers. many people are wondering, why would they lie about this? the olympic committee they have certain rules and there is an honor code. there is a curfew. they were out really late. it happened to be on a sunday morng after their events. the swimmers wrapped up saturday night. they were out celebrating. they were supposed to be at the olympic village and their stories changed. they said they were held up by a guy with a police badge. then they're saying now that
3:06 am
didn't happen. we were held up at a gas station. >> i can't remember the color of the car. >> i get what you're saying. i talked to someone involved with u.s. swimming. they said you are allowed to leave the olympic village, especially now that swimming is over. >> apparently there was a curfew even though the swimming was over. i think it snowballed. they didn't mean it to turn into this. >> just like so many things, the cover-up is always worse than the crime if there was something here. >> you know what, if the brazilian authorities are going to talk to the three guys, they should be able to get it straight. did somebody make something up -- >> you're in another country. what's the punishment. we're reading it could be three years in prison. >> we have an expert in the next hour. we're going to read some of your e-mail. what do you think about it? e-mail us. foxandfriends.com. we found out as anticipated that donald trump, being that he is representing a major party. got his national security
3:07 am
briefing. to make sure we have the best intelligence possible and not dumbing it down for political reasons, i would like michael flynn, a runner-up to be vice president there and i'd like chris christie there. we get an inside -- about what happened. >> the night before i saw him in milwaukee. i asked him, do you trust intelligence? do you trust the intelligence community? is that why you're taking in general flynn? this is what he said. >> not so much from the people that have been doing it for our country. look what's happened over the last ten years and over the years. it's been catastrophic. i won't use some of the people that are your standards, use them, use them, use them. very easy to use them. they've made such bad decisions, i won't use them. >> the briefers that came in today were absolutely professional, the top of their field. then the discussion that we had was very thorough. i will tell you that we were only able to scratch the surface
3:08 am
of the complexity of the threats that our country faces. the policy decisions that a president makes sometimes can be in dramatic contrast to the intelligence that they receive. the policy decisions that this policy administration has made under hillary clinton and president obama are in many cases in contrast to what we were presented today. >> a lot of people wonder why the candidates need to be briefed. shouldn't they be briefed once they become the president? the current sitting president he determines what the candidates, what they're going to hear. we're told that they don't hear all of the major secrets. but the idea here is so that they'll be prepared when they do get to become president that they're prepared for handling these threats that face the united states. >> it all got started with harry truman in 1952 when he was in the thick of things and thought the people are running for president ought to know what they're up against. >> i love that they had a camera in there. i felt like i was part of it. i liked it.
3:09 am
meanwhile, we've got some interesting thing to talk about tim kaine, the running mate for hillary clinton. for perspective, back in 2002, he was the lieutenant governor of the commonwealth of virginia. there was a story going on down there where the speaker of the house was involved with something, apparently it is alleged he groped a woman, pinned her against some office furniture. he said it never happened. there was a settlement. top republicans were calling for him to quit, the speaker of the house down in virginia. then tim kaine was asked about it. so he said this. he said, if the allegations are true, he ought to resign. when i read it this morning, my reaction was the same i had when i read about the clinton luns lewinsky affair. it is beneath the dignity of the office. he's saying what bill clinton did, the running mate husband, inappropriate for president of the united states. i wonder if he would say the
3:10 am
same thing now. >> it's funny you should say that. this is his response now. >> i had feelings of disappointment back then. but that's now 20 years old. when i'm talking to people on the campaign trail, they're not asking me about old controversies, they're asking me about tomorrow. what are we going to do tomorrow to have an economy that works for people, to have a stronger security posture through stronger alliances. i hear a lot. what are we going to do to make sure we have a community that respects all. past controversies aren't that important to me now. >> it should be. to the american people, the american voter. if you want to know what the white house might look like, go back to the clinton white house. the number one book in america is by their secret service agent who witnessed not just monica lewinsky. this was a carnival -- it's like a frat house for 7 1/2 years from what he saw. if you want to know what the future clinton administration might be like, it might be just like that. >> they could be a lot of fun.
3:11 am
screaming and yelling and violence. >> how did bill clinton get in trouble? personalry, he lied about something. what are the house republicans alleging? >> he lied about something is the other story. >> today -- so the story back then ws percentaas perjury. the story now is hillary clinton perjured herself on capitol hill. >> you're out of gas? >> i got some coffee for you. >> good. >> thanks, steve. >> i appreciate it. >> heather has headlines. >> not out of gas. >> not after i have this. >> we can go back and talk about fraternity houses. >> ainsley. >> got breaking news. a serious story breaking right now. there is complete chaos taking place in turkey after a series of deadly attacks on police leaving six people dead and one is an officer.
3:12 am
nearly 220 people hurt from two car bombs set off outside two different police headquarters. officials blame the kurdistan work party. a group the country considered to be terrorists. more on that story from overseas. an out of control wildfire at home that is expanding across california. thousands of people who live about 60 miles from los angeles now forced out of their homes and they are returning. look at that right there. to nothing. crews scrambling to fight the fires as walls of flames threaten neighborhoods there. it's 4% contained so far. to louisiana where nearly 7 trillion gallons of rain have devastated parts of that state. but even more rain is expected to fall throughout the day today. that death toll climbing to 13. some areas completely underwater. watch as a truck tries to power through the floods. it's put nearly underwater.
3:13 am
then this. like a scene out of a scary movie. a casket floating in the water and tied to a tree trunk so it won't wash way. we're praying for our friends down there. see you back here shortly. >> quite an image. >> that video. >> thanks, heather. >> the president hasn't each gone town there. >> he's on vacation. >> how could he not show up? >> he's not running for reelection. >> i guess so. the candidates sharpening their attacks against each other. >> we reject the bigotry of hillary clinton which panders to and toux down to communities much color and sees them only as votes. that's all they care about. >> is that message working with the voters? we're going to tell you. this 12-year-old hunter is getting death threats for posting pictures like that. the firestorm surrounding her. there's something out there.

>> first, we'll look at trump talking about hillary. okay, let's watch. >> opportunity, fair and equal representation. we reject the bigotry of hillary clinton which panders to and talks down to communities of color and sees them only as votes. that's all they care about. not as individual human beings worthy of a better future. they have taken advantage. >> wow. the independents way up there with the republicans. >> they are. they're back with the republicans. that's good news for donald trump. his speech did really well with republicans and independents. they gave this an a-plus and a-minus respectively. democrats didn't like it. when he said humans x worthy of a better future. his message does resonate with voters. hillary clinton says donald trump talks about fear. >> when donald trump speaks, he
3:19 am
speaks about fear. he speaks about such negativity and such pessimism. and then i watch the olympics and it's exactly the opposite. you have young people going out doing their best every day to get prepared to compete. that's what we're going to do in america. >> you can see there, democrats gave it a b-plus. republicans an f, independents a b-minus. listen, they said she's missing the point. we're not responding to his -- we respond to his hope, message and making america great again and keeping us safe. hillary has to understand his message isn't one of hate and division. it's giving a huge group of people hope. >> in your dial today, this is limited representation of what's been going on. nonetheless, the independents are back with the republicans. for a while, they were in the middle closer to the democrats. now they seem to be back in
3:20 am
trump's corner. >> that's right. for three weeks, he lost the independents. this speech seems to bring them back. the question is, can he sustain it? >> lee carter, thanks very much. >> any time. great to be here. coming up on this thursday, did you know only a few gitmo detainees returned to terror. that's cording to the obama administration. we have the facts that they don't want you to hear, coming up. plus, he made it through the recession by relying on these three words. made in america. >> restaurant to go to. you ought to listen to them. well, if you ask somebody on how to create business, ask the businessman. donald trump. >> leah gabriel is here with his story and why you should care about him. come on in, ainsley and leah. with hydrogenated oil...

4:01 am
get back to school. it's that time of day. let me remind you, your mornings are better because you're with us. you're with "friends." ♪ ♪ don't need nothing but a good time ♪ ♪ how can i resist >> hey, look. >> why is rob riggle always happy? >> because he's the funniest guy. >> he is funny. >> he loves to entertain. >> you know, wherever he goes, he stays in a holiday inn express. he's in front of the pancake selfie express. what this does is you take a picture and in four minutes your face can be on pancakes. you can be breakfast. >> then you eat your face. you eat the pancake. >> sounds funny. yes. >> all right. >> and you can hand yourself around to other people. >> right. >> have a bite. >> we'll talk to him. >> he's with fox sports and he's
4:02 am
a veteran and he goes to "the daily show." he's talent and diverse. i resent him. >> we start with this. something that everybody is talking about. fox news alert. don'ts from rio, police are investigating the alleged robbery claims of 12-time olympic medalist ryan lochte. >> two of his teammates were hauled off the plane bound for the united states just as they were about to take off. >> meanwhile, he's sitting around with his model girlfriend. anna kooiman is here with the latest. >> i'm not the girlfriend, i'm the reporter. >> she's married. >> yeah. a lot of twists and turns on the stories. you're about to look at a brand-new video from george bush inner -- intercontinental airport where the plane that would have held the two olympians just landed moments ago.
4:03 am
conger and bentz were yanked off over the claims that they were robbed. the reporters mobbed the athletes late last night. we have just learned another swimmer involved, jimmy feigen, is cooperating with authorities in rio. investigators saying that to time line the four men gave miss, well, it simply isn't adding up. pointing to this video obtained by the daily mail. lochte saying they left the club at 4:00 a.m., but they were seen leaving around 6:00 a.m. and this video shows them checking back into the olympic village just before 7:00 in the morning. well, the swimmers say they were too drunk to remember the details of the location of the crime and lochte is now changing parts of the story. this is what he told nbc the day after the incident, allegedly happened. >> i was like we didn't do anything wrong. so i'm not getting down on the ground. and then the guy pulls out his gun. he cocked it, put it to my forehead and he said get down. i put my hands up i was like
4:04 am
whatever. >> lochte told nbc that their cab wasn't pull over, instead, they were ambushed while stopped at a gas station and that the gun was pointed in his general direction. authorities have called on lochte to stay inside the country but he's already back on u.s. soil. posting this photo to snapchat. his lawyer says he will not return for questioning. the other three are expected to give testimony later on today. >> oh, boy. anna, thank you. >> and it looks like the twist is it's not true. unless it takes a twist just think about this. >> maybe. >> with all the medals he won, with all the fame he acquired, all the sponsors he has, they're all going by the boards. he'll be looked at in a different way. >> it sounds like the story changed. maybe they had too much to drink and they don't remember the details. >> they have admitted that. >> let's bring in former crime -- a former federal attorney and former criminal
4:05 am
defense attorney emily compagno. you have a long business card. >> what trouble are they in in terms of brazilian law, if they are aggressively pursued? >> right. so if they're charged and convicted of knowingly filing a false police report in brazil, they can face up to six months in prison and/or a fine. >> is it a false police report though if they were robbed at gunpoint, the details just might be a little different than they initially told? >> no, not at all. then it wouldn't be filing a false police report. part of their defense was look, we were drunk and this intoxication explains in their eyes why there's inconsistencies and it would mitigate the knowingly part of the filing of a false police report. even if they hallucinated the whole thing, if they were that intoxicated that mitigates that specific intent they had to
4:06 am
knowingly file that false report. but remember -- >> emily, it all -- >> they'll be held in brazil -- sorry. go ahead. >> i was going -- pardon the interruntion. it got started because ryan lochte's mom was on the radio and said that my son told me that last night they were robbed. that's how this suddenly has gotten -- to be such a big story. >> and then lochte goes to billy bush and gives his account to nbc. >> so the question is, since he is now on american soil, emily, if it is found that he filed a false police report, if the three guys were going to be interrupted today said, yeah, we made it up, can he be extradited back to brazil to face the music? >> technically, yes, we have an extradition treaty signed with brazil. but for this kind of crime it's so unlikely that he actually would be extradited. here's why. because in the list of crimes it's reserved for murder and rape and filing a false police
4:07 am
report is not on that treaty. the other two will have to stay in the country throughout their testimony and they will not be allowed to leave. given the high profile nature of the crime, the u.s. ambassador to brazil she'll play a large part in ensuring this is expeditiously treated. the reason brazil is coming at this so aggressively not only is it illegal to file a false police report, but also plays into the whole prejudice that they were trying to overcome with these olympic games like look we're not an unsafe city, we're not rife with crime. so they're attacking this aggressively because i think they want to combat that notion we had prior to the olympic games and the story circulating about the safety there. >> emily compagno, thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> so it's a question of whether or not it happened or not. she saying even though their change has changed, because ryan initially said he was pulled over by men with a police badge and he said the gun is pointed
4:08 am
at his head. last night, he said not pulled over by men with a badge. but robbed by guys at a gas station. did it even happen or not? if it did happen and the story changes, then she's saying it's not filing a police report. >> you have that report, the new version. the two people who are intim dated because they're being questioned right now about the story. so all three of these stories don't add up, then it gets -- >> i bet his mom feels so bad. >> for spilling the beans on that radio show. yep. so they'll talk to the police today. the three guys down in rio. we should know by tomorrow at this time. >> by the way, we have more medals than anybody else. the u.s. men's basketball team won big over argentina. >> well, they better. they're all millionaires. >> right. meanwhile, you know, you probably have seen on your facebook page or on the internet there are all these stories about hillary clinton's health problems. yesterday on the doug mcentire on the morning show, they booked
4:09 am
dr. drew. and he was called on to debunk some of these claims that you have seen online. that was a drudge picture a couple of days ago. >> maybe her health is so bad she can't serve and the fact she isn't as active as donald trump, she might not have the vim and vigor. >> that's not what happened, he dropped some bombshells. he said he's gravely concerned about her health and is experiencing some bizarre treatment. in fact, we have a sound bite. >> we do. roll it. >> both of us concluded that if we were providing the care that she was receives -- receiving, we'd be ashamed to show up in the doctor's lounge. she's receiving sort of 1950 level sort of care by our evaluation. she had two episodes of deep venous thrombosis, blood clots in the legs and she has hypothigh roizism. she is being treated by armor
4:10 am
thyroid, which is unconventional therapy and we both went, that's weird. she falls and hits her head. as a complication of that has a transverse sinus thrombosis. it seems like she's getting care from somebody she met in arkansas when she was a kid and i just -- you have to wonder. you have to wonder. it's not so much that her health is a grave concern. it's that the care she's getting could make it a concern. >> is that possible, she doesn't have a good health care plan? does she not know about obamacare? >> he's just shocked at what they're doing for her problems. >> and if you go to their website, you want to hear that clip, you can't. they took it down. they don't want you to hear that. >> that's curious. so the media dismisses the hillary health claims as a conspiracy, even though the same
4:11 am
people, back in 2008, the same people were concerned about john mccain and his health. >> are you saying there's a double standard? >> you be the judge. >> if donald trump sits down and an interview, he could say there might be a problem. >> just looking at what is known. what has been posted to her website. but they're calling for the release of more of her health records. >> what do you think? let us know. heather, over to you for some headlines. we have brand-new video showing dozens of people running for their lives in turkey, this after a series of deadly attacks taking place on police headquarters. thick black smoke rising from the rubble after two car bombs wipe out two different police headquarters. at least six people so far are dead. four of them turkish police officers. nearly 220 others have been hurt.
4:12 am
many running back into the destruction to try to save people trapped under bricks and cement. officials there blaming the kurdistan workers party a group that the country considers terrorists. more on this out of turkey as we get it. more incredible video from back here at home. an out of control wildfire expanding across california neighborhoods. you can see the flames there devouring front yards, burning homes. just completely to the ground. look at that right there. so far, about 100,000 people east of los angeles are now returning home to the ashes there. and then a warning for you this video hard to watch. on the left fire consuming a cross on a hillside. on the right the charred remains of that cross right now. well, thousands more homes are directly in the path of that fire. we'll keep watching it. this looks like a scene out of a scary movie. a casket floating in the historic louisiana flooding. it's tied to the tree trunk so it won't float away.
4:13 am
some areas are completely submerged. a truck tries to power through the floods, its hood is nearly under water. nearly 7 trillion gallons of rain already devastating parts of that state and more rain expected to fall today. this is considered the worst u.s. disaster since hurricane sandy. 13 people have died so far. we're thinking of our friends in louisiana, hoping everybody is safe. >> i just remembered george bush got killed for flying over katrina. >> because he was told to stay away. >> yeah. this president is sitting there golfing when all of this is going on, not even pretending as if he's zoned in on us. this is unbelievable. >> maybe he wants the rain to stop and the water to recede. he's on vacation. and donald trump is back on the trail today, what's next? we have the inside scoop. she's the first american to
4:14 am
women gold medals in six consecutive games. why isn't anyone talking about her? because she won with her gun. she'll join us live. --. if you have a typical airline credit card, you only earn double miles when you buy stuff from that airline. wait...is this where you typically shop? you should be getting double miles on every purchase! switch...to the capital one venture card. with venture, you earn unlimited double miles on every purchase, everywhere, every day.
4:15 am
not just ...(dismissively) airline purchases. seriously... double miles... everywhere. what's in your wallet?
4:16 am
4:18 am
now to the raise for the white house. donald trump is back on the campaign trail this morning just hours after that first classified national security briefing. >> as reports surfaced that the clinton foundation may have been hacked a while back. >> this is getting unbelievable. senior national correspondent, john roberts, live in new york city. in and around trump tower. hey, john. >> reporter: we're back in the big apple. good morning, brian, ainsley and steve. a colleague of mine once told me, learn something new every day. go to bed smarter than you were when you woke up and donald trump did that yesterday after spending a full two hours with intelligence officials. his first classified briefing yesterday in new york city at the fbi field office. there was some concerns by the trump campaign that he wasn't going to get the top shelf intelligence. he was going to get more of the intelligence equivalent of a well drink. but the lieutenant general michael flynn who accompanied him said yesterday that the quality was very thorough.
4:19 am
here's what he said about it. >> the briefers that came in today were absolutely professional. the top of their field and t the -- and then the discussion we had was very thorough. i will tell you that we were only able to scratch the surface of the complexity of the threats that our country faces. so today was just the beginning of a long dialogue. >> one thing about the intelligence briefing, it is classified information but it's not operational. doesn't go to sources or methods but a view of all the threats that face the united states and around the world. donald trump will huddle with his campaign for most of the day, including of course his new management structure. it's likely because he's got steve bannon in the top spot now. he'll return to his more combative style, that served him well in the primaries and at the same time, brian, steve and ainsley, he has a group of staff members and advisers that are encouraging him to stay focused on message. to just use his time to hit hillary clinton and let
4:20 am
surrogates of the campaign handle the other stuff. by the way, you mentioned the clinton foundation's computer servers. they are investigating whether or not they might have been hacked as well as the other servers but a source close to the foundation said this morning, quote, no evidence foundation systems were breached and they have not been notified by law enforcement of an issue. >> all right. john roberts in front of trump tower where yesterday they were worried that the intel would be the quality of a well drink, but as it turns out -- he wound up with top shelf. wound up with top shelf intel. >> maybe in the future we'll find out who gave you that great advice about learning something every day and going to bed smarter. i think i know. if you think you know what gave him that advice, let us know. >> i can think of five in my life right now. >> very appropriate. >> i have yet to get it, now i have it. students and parents want a principal fired. why? because she wants them to study and get good grades. that story, next. she's the first american to
4:21 am
win the gold medal in six consecutive summer games but no one is talking about her. why? because she won those medals with her gun. there she is. she's going to join us live. congratulations. >> hello rio. at safelite, we know how busy life can be.
4:22 am
these kids were headed to their first dance recital... ...when their windshield got cracked... ...but they couldn't miss the show. so dad went to the new safelite-dot-com. and in just a few clicks, he scheduled a replacement... ...before the girls even took the stage. safelite-dot-com is the fast, easy way to schedule service anywhere in america! so you don't have to miss a thing. y'all did wonderful! that's another safelite advantage.

4:25 am
demanding to oust that principal right there of the famous new york performers arts high school because she's putting more stress on academics as opposed to talent. the school was the inspiration behind the movie "fame." >> wow. meanwhile, olympic champion kim rhode making history with six straight wins at the summer games. the most recent, a bronze in rio last week. she's the first woman to medal in six consecutive games and that is historic. >> but some fans say the media coverage has been lacking because she won the medals with a gun. >> well, six-time olympic champion and u.s. skeet shooter kim rhode joins us live from rio. congratulations and good morning to you. >> hey, kim. >> thanks for having me, guys. >> fantastic. we're going to talk about your accomplishments, but first i have to ask you the story that
4:26 am
everybody is talking about. ryan lochte story, something fishy about his story where he said he was mugged at gun point and now there are questions about whether or not that's true. is that what people are talking about at the olympic village down in rio? >> you know, it's pretty amazing when we're in the village we're in a bubble. so i don't really know too much about it. i haven't heard anything. and, you know, i can't really comment on what happened to him or not. >> what about the -- >> who knows? >> what about the rules? are you allowed to leave the area where you are, the village, at night, is there a curfew? >> there's no curfew that i'm aware of. we are allowed to travel anywhere we want to go. in a foreign country. any country you go to, you have to be smart. just kind of comes with the territory. >> yeah. absolutely. well, i wanted to ask you about that, because it is the lead story. it seems like on every channel today. congratulations on six consecutive wins. how do you feel? this is great. you have made history. >> i'm kind of just waiting to
4:27 am
wake up. it's just been incredible. you know, i started my first olympics at 16 and now i'm 37. six olympics later. they keep telling me that i have nine nor olympics in me. but i'm going to take it one more time. go for tokyo. if l.a. gets 2024 i'll be there as well. at least one more, if not two. >> you made history, it's awesome. all the networks should be talking about you. why do you think the mainstream media are not discussing this and what you have achieved in your sport? >> well, you know, we definitely have this stigmatism that's attached to our sport. we get asked the tough questions when incidents occur. and it kind of runs with the territory in our events. i think we're just kind of hopeful that one sponsor will step up to the plate that's outside of our industry. i mean, most of our sponsors are coming from within our own industry. from, you know, winchester,
4:28 am
beretta, cabela's, those people have been there to support us. but as a whole i think our team is struggling to get past that stigmatism that we face. >> that would be terrific. there's a website called gateway pundit. apparently one of their headlines was regarding you, first woman to medal in six olympics, ignored by media because she's pro second amendment. do you think there might be something to that, kim? >> well, i have to say i'm very proud of being a second amendment supporter. that goes hand in hand with what i do every day. i had family member that were one of the 25 hand picked men that went in to save custer so i have a long history of shooting sports and outdoor heritage so for me it's something a lot more. something that was passed down generationally. i see the laws that are being passed, the six signed by governor jerry brown. you know, we're fighting. we're fighting for our rights to
4:29 am
keep our gun and our right to enjoy the sport, you know, that i enjoy every day. >> there's great. kim, i grew up down south. skeet shooting is very popular down there. it's extremely tough to hit those clay pigeons. i'm really proud of you. you did a great job. thank you so much for representing our country. >> thank you, guys. it's been incredible. you know, i think that's one thing about our sport is about the positiveness. i mean, for me, as a young kid it taught me responsibility, discipline. focus. all things that we use in everyday life. that's been my goal. to really show case the positiveness of my sport and really just educate people about how fun it is. >> it is fun. kim rhode, olympic champion, six consecutive games. thank you and congratulations. that's great. >> and it's a girl. i love it. >> all right. coming up on a thursday, they filled the streets with anti-police protests but now the black lives matter group is cashing in, banking more than $100 million and you won't believe who the money's from.
4:30 am
plus, was it all just a big lie or did they really get robbed down in rio? we were just asking kim that. what happened with the four u.s. olympians? comedian rob riggle is here with his take. he's out there with brian. >> they're taking pictures so their faces can be on the pancake. >> it's the selfie pancake. you don't want to miss this. i have asthma... ...one of many pieces in my life.
4:31 am
so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine. i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment with breo. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo opens up airways to help improve breathing for a full 24 hours. breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo could be a missing piece for you. see if you're eligible for 12 months free at mybreo.com.

4:45 am
it has been another blistering week on the campaign trail. the candidates sharpening their attacks but what do the voters think? lee carter is a pollster and partner at maslansky & partners and she put the biggest digs at the dial test. >> hey. >> we'll start with donald trump. people say he had a good week as far as his speeches were concern concerned and he said the democratic party is rigged. watch the dial. >> the democratic party rigged the nomination to give it to hillary clinton, thus giving the soul of their far this year to special interests. what else is new? i'm running to listen to your voice. to hear the cries for help from so many people in our nation. >> so you can see there, republicans in the red, they really responded well here. they gave it the "a." an independents a b-plus and the
4:46 am
democrats were at a d-plus. but it's interesting to see the independents come back with the republicans. they hadn't been there for the last three weeks. they love the message about being their voice with a really good -- it was a really good night for donald trump. >> let's talk the other side, hillary clinton gave a speech and she said that donald trump is speaking about fear. listen to this. >> when donald trump speaks, he speaks about fear. he speaks about such negativity and such pessimism. then i watch the olympics and it's exactly the opposite. you have young people going out doing their best every day to get prepared to compete. and that's what we're going to do in america. >> so you can see here, you know, republicans gave this an "f." independents a d-minus. they were really close together here. what they said is she's missing
4:47 am
something. it's not the fear. it's not the bigotry, it's not the anger we're responding to. donald trump is speaking to us the voters, he is giving us hope. his whole message of jobs, national security, making america great again is an optimistic one. the rest of it she's not getting the fact that this isn't about fear. for them, this is about hope again. so it just didn't resonate with them. >> donald trump says that hillary clinton is taking advantage of the black community. listen to this sound bite. >> opportunity, fair and equal representation, we reject the bigotry of hillary clinton which panders to and talks down to communities of color and sees them only as votes. that's all they care about. not as individual human beings, worthy of a better future. they have taken advantage. >> so you can see republicans an a-plus and independents, a-minus. democrats gave it a d-minus here. but what i think is so interesting is that again those independents are tracking back
4:48 am
with republicans. it seemsresonating. he has to stay on discipline right now. if this is the result of him writing speeches with rudy giuliani he should do it more often. >> people are saying that. lee, great to see you. mainstream media writing off donald trump already. he's too far down in the polls to make a come back, so are they right? newt gingrich will answer that. parents, time to get your kids in gear for back to school. are they ready? steve is putting them to the test. >> yeah. yeah. get to work. where's the work? for lower back pain sufferers, the search for relief often leads here. introducing drug-free aleve direct therapy. a high intensity tens device that uses technology once only in doctors' offices. for deep penetrating relief at the source. new aleve direct therapy.

four american olympians causing outrage this morning as two get yanked off their flight back to the u.s. the big question -- did they lie about being robbed at gun point? >> we'll know soon. and the left and trump's critics say his staff changes are too little, too late. and his campaign already over. funny because it's only august. but newt gingrich says it will make him stronger and newt gingrich joins us in two minutes. and are the concerns about hillary clinton's health a conspiracy? well, dr. drew went to college for this and said no. >> she falls and hits her head, as a complication of that has a transverse sinus thrombosis. >> i don't think he's a political hack. he's a doctor and he plays one on tv. more from dr. drew in a moment because your mornings are better because you're with "friends." >> all right.
5:01 am
>> you were right. he's a board certified medicine specialist and tv personality, dr. drew. >> yeah. >> what he said on the radio yesterday which had been taken down by the radio station -- >> of course. >> the fact that when we saw hillary clinton wearing those prism glasses a sign ofbrain -- of brain damage and worried about the care she's getting so far. >> and she made the comment to senator johnson, at this point, what difference does this make? she was wearing the glasses. >> that's right. well, newt gingrich will talk about this coming up. and martha stewart will be in the studio and we're "cooking with friends." >> i have not met her yet. what do you think? >> yeah. there's a reason that people trust her to prepare the food. >> she's a superstar. i don't know what she's like. >> she has an actual way to bring food into your house.
5:02 am
>> really? food in the house? >> i'm glad to read the hard. let's get over to heather and she has some headlines for us. >> we have been following this story all morning long, and some new breaking news. kurdish rebels have bombed a military vehicle killing three soldiers in turkey. well, this come argue a series of deadly attacks on police in the country within the last 24 hours. look at the video. looks like a war scene there. thick, black smoke rizing from the -- rising from the car bombs. at least nine people are dead in those attacks. four of them officers, nearly 220 others have been hurt so far. officials blaming the kurdistan workers party. a group that that country considers to be terrorists. we'll keep following that story and bring you more as we get it. back here at home, extreme weather to bring you. this may be hard for you to watch. like a scene out of the scary
5:03 am
movie. there is a casket there and it is floating in the historic louisiana flooding. you can see that tha actually tied to a tree trunk so it won't float away. national guard helicopters now dropping sandbags to try to help contain the water there. more than 13 people have died so far. nearly 7 trillion gallons of rain have already devastated parts of that state and more is expected to fall today. this is being called the worst u.s. disaster since hurricane sandy. maria will more later on. and a ship bursts into flames, this happened off the coast of puerto rico. more than 500 people forced to evacuate that ship, sliding down into the emergency boat. frightened passengers waiting on board that burning boat as the u.s. coast guard thankfully rushing in to help. two dozen people were brought to the hospital. some of them had broken bones. that fire reportedly started in the ship's engine room when a
5:04 am
hose carrying fuel burst open. a lot going on. very busy news day. >> i have never seen people abandon ship like that. >> like an airplane. >> still to come, mark burnett and roma downey and newt gingrich. but first, let's talk about ryan lochte. >> major developments from rio where police have investigating the robbery claims of 12-time olympic medalist, ryan lochte. >> two of his teammates were hauled off a plane, they were coming home just as they were about to take off. they were yanked from the plane. >> this as lochte does a backstroke on his dramatic story that played out on national tv. >> i see what you did there, brian. >> it's genius. anna kooiman yelled while i was speaking, but she has a lot to say. >> i do. i'm going to say it. good morning to everybody at home as well. listen to this, brazilian police are pulling gunnar bentz and jack conger off a flight bound
5:05 am
for the u.s. they did that last year and then reporters mobbed them as they went to the headquarters. a judge forced them to testify about what happened when lochte claims they were robbed. we have learned another swimmer involved jimmy feigen is cooperating with authorities there in rio. the time line that the four men gave police though simply isn't adding up. pointing to this video obtained by the daily mail. lochte said they left the club at 4:00 a.m., but they were seen leaving at 6:00 a.m. and it shows the four swimmers checking back into the olympic village at 7:00 in the morning. the swimmers said they were too drunk to remember the details of the crime and lochte is changing some parts of the story. this is what he told nbc the day after the incident allegedly happened. >> i didn't do anything wrong. so i'm not getting down on the ground and the guy pulled out
5:06 am
his gun, he cocked it, he put it to my forehead and i put my hands up. i said whatever. >> but then lochte telling nbc last night their cab wasn't pulled over. instead, they were ambushed while stopped at a gas station and that the gun was only pointed in his general direction, not directly at his head. authorities had called on lochte to stay in the country but he's already back here in the united states, posting this photo to snapchat. these lawyer is saying that lochte will not return for questioning. the other three swimmers are expected to give their testimony later today. ainsley, brian and steve? >> all right, thank you, anna. >> man, let's see what happens. >> let's bring in newt gingrich too. he was the former speaker of the house, and good morning to you, mr. gingrich. thanks for joining us. >> good morning. >> so donald trump, he's maniac. he's only taken two days off this entire month, this is the 17th of august. he's back on the campaign trail today. what do you make of the changes within his campaign? >> well, first of all, i think
5:07 am
trump genuinely enjoying campaigning and so i think he's doing something that he gains energy from. this sort of is his hobby. he doesn't really need to take a vacation when he does something he feels so deeply about. i thought he had added two tremendous talent, steve bannon has been remarkable as the head of breitbart, but also in other things he's done with his career. he's been a movie editor and director. he has been a businessman -- >> he's never run campaign though. >> look, the guy who got ronald reagan elected as his campaign chairman had never run a campaign either. he was part of the secret operation against the nazis in world war ii and he had been a lawyer. he had never run a campaign. common sense, aggressiveness, what bannon has done he's understood how social media works. he's understood political issues. he's a very aggressive, tough guy. he'll be a big asset.
5:08 am
then kelly-ann conway probably knows about as much about the american voter and how to communicate directly as much as anybody. i see them adding to paul ryan and what paul has already done, which has been tremendous. paul was the key to getting through the convention with all of the different moving parts working. it was a great achievement. but running for president is a huge job. you need a lot of talent and these are two very smart people that trump has brought in. >> so he's got to pick up ground. i think even donald trump would admit that and said so much to you. even though he's up in indiana. most of the battleground states he's trailing between 3 and 15 points. so what was paul ryan not doi doing -- so what was paul manafort not doing that this guy will do this? >> first of all, right after the republican convention, donald trump was ahead. the democrats then had a very successful convention. trump got involved in a couple of mistakes he shouldn't have.
5:09 am
and hillary has spent about $110 million in advertising to his zero. so in mid august, it looks like he's got a fight and he will fight. but, you know, with all my friends -- i say read "whistle-stop" about the truman campaign in 1948. he was so far behind in september that one of the leading polling organizations said they had quit polling, truman was going to lose, it was inevitable. i just remind people, you saw on monday an historic espn -- historic speech about terrorism and the national establishment in both parties. you saw on tuesday a remarkable speech in which donald trump said here's how bad the inner city is and here's what the democrats did to make it bad. and i -- he appealed directly to the african-american community. these are things you have not seen republicans do before. both of those were effective. they're both historic. i think you're going to see more of the things like that. and i think frankly he's going
5:10 am
to end up beating hillary by a surprising margin. >> it's only the middle of august. >> and ronald reagan wasn't winning until october. >> right. meanwhile, let's talk about this. yesterday on radio show out in los angeles, newt, dr. drew, he was called in to debunk the claims that hillary is having health problems and he dropped a bunch of bombshells. he's worried about the care she received and the problem she might have. listen to this, and we want to get your observations about it. >> both of us concluded if we were providing the care she was receiving, we'd be ashamed to show up in the doctor's lounge. we would be laughed out. she's receiving sort of 1950 level sort of care by our evaluation. she had two episodes of what's called deep venous thrombosis,
5:11 am
blood clots in the legs and she has hypothyroidism. she is being treated with armor thyroid which is unconventional. we said, that's weird. then she falls and hits her head and as a complication of that has a transverse sinus thrombosis. this is an exceedingly rare clot. i have only seen one in my career. it seems like she's getting care from someone she met in arkansas when she was a kid and i just -- you have to wonder. got to wonder. it's not so much that her health is a grave concern, it's that the care she's getting could make it a concern. >> so newt, what do you think? >> well, first of all, just to get down to the human level for a second, let's include hillary clinton in our prayers. you can be opposed to somebody without hoping they have bad health and i hope that she's already. -- all right. with all due respect to television doctors when you have a doctor who has never seen the
5:12 am
patient, begin to give you a complicated, fancy sounding analysis based on what? i mean, i would be very cautious and i would recommend to doctors for professional reasons to be very cautious before you start analyzing people. because next you'll get a left-wine psychiatrist explaining donald trump in negative terms. >> they already have. >> i think we ought to recognize that's kind of junk medicine, not the real deal. >> well, apparently he and another doctor had looked at some of the information that was available on her website and you're absolutely right. did not take an examination. >> but why do you think you can't log on to their website and can't see the clip anymore? it says that it appears that the clip does not exist. >> look, and this is true for trump and clinton. you have a page that is causing you trouble, why would you keep it up? let's give them some credit for
5:13 am
competence. that was a boo-boo. >> i see that mike pence will be campaigning with marco rubio. and we saw governor walker in the audience. what are the republicans doing or not doing to support trump in this 11th hour? >> i think it's about the 9th hour, but anyway, people are coming back together. people are beginning to realize for example -- >> like who? >> well, i think as you said, when scott walker shows up, that's a pretty big deal. it says a lot in wisconsin. i think you'll have other members comembe members campaigning with him. as he gives more speeches like he did on monday and tuesday, you will see a lot more republicans decide they're very comfortable rallying around him. >> all right. former speaker of the house, newt gingrich. thank you for joining us today. coming up, did you know only a few gitmo detainees return to terror?
5:14 am
that's according to the obama administration. >> isn't one too many? and she's gone from hunter to being hunted herself. we'll tell you about a 12-year-old being threatened with death for hunting big game. there's something out there. that can be serious, even fatal to infants. it's whooping cough, and people can spread it without knowing it. understand the danger your new grandchild faces. talk to your doctor or pharmacist about a whooping cough vaccination today. this car is traveling over 200 miles per hour.

5:18 am
so vice president tim kaine has a lot of experience in government. >> he's not vice president yet. >> he was a sitting government and he was a deputy -- a lieutenant governor at which time he harkens back to his take on when bill clinton was caught up in the monica mess and before that he was in 2002 he was commenting on another scandal that was taking place within the virginia administration. >> right. in the virginia house, the speaker of the house was accused of groping a woman, pinning her against office furniture. he says it never happened and there was a settlement and a number of top republicans were calling for the guy to resign. >> vance wilkins was his name. >> right.
5:19 am
and tim kaine was asked about regarding monica lewinsky and the impeachment and bill clinton and his wife who is now his running mate. this is what he said back in 2002 regarding the allegations and the speaker of the house in virginia. >> if the allegations are true, he ought to resign. when i read it this morning my reaction was the same i had when i read about the clinton/lewinsky affair. this not appropriate conduct. it is beneath the dignity of the office. so that's what he was saying about bill clinton years ago. >> no wonder bill clinton rather pretended to be asleep the last time they were sitting together 59 the -- at the convention. >> he might have been asleep. >> hard to know when someone is pretending. here is tim kaine responding to tim kaine's comments in 2002. >> i had some feelings of disappointment back then and this is now 20 years old. when i talk to the people on the campaign trail they're asking me about tomorrow, not the past. what are we doing for tomorrow to have a stronger security posture and i hear a lot. what are we going to do to make
5:20 am
sure we have a community that respects all? so past controversies aren't that important to me now. >> that's old news. >> after hillary asked will you be my running mate. sure i will. what about what you said about bill clinton? hand me a brush, and a rug and brush it under it. >> by the way, you better have an answer for it because it will come up. >> just know if that was on the republican side and the vice presidential nominee had said something about donald trump back in the day -- >> it would be anywhere. >> there you go. did you know only a few gitmo detainees returned to terror? we have the facts that the administration doesn't want want you to know. remember the classic "ben hur?" it's returning to the big screen. >> modernized. >> you should have killed me. >> i will. >> friends of our show the
