3:01 am
could we not be close to truth? we could add that. did you see donald trump on "dancing with the stars"? no one did. it didn't happen. don't tell this guy. >> i just think of donald trump's spinning hillary clinton so violently during their tango when she came on? >> you know what, honestly, i saw it coming. i wasn't really that surprised honestly. i felt the energy. >> that's eye witness news. that's not all we have in mind. keep in mind, our mornings are much better because you're with friends. good morning to you and your family. look who we have on the curvy couch. >> holy smokes. i pass out in a bar last night and i woke up here. i was drag gooned. >> you have not passed out in a bar in 20 years. >> i was not. i came here voluntarily.

3:03 am
this was an invitation that came from nieto's office last friday. it was issued to donald trump and hillary clinton. donald trump got the jump on hillary clinton. we talk to the mexicans all the time, we don't need to go. it's a perfect curtain razor for donald trump's big, eagerly anticipated speech here in phoenix at the convention center where he'll be talking about immigration and specifically what to do about the millions upon millions of people who enter this country illegally. here's a little bit of curtain razor from his campaign manager kellyanne conway. >> no amnesty, no legalization, no sapg two wary city. he wants to abide the law, enforce the law which is a novel concept in washington. people who have committed a crime are gone. then he wants to see what we're left with. he will address that tomorrow. i think you will see one of the toughest speeches on illegal immigration in modern political
3:04 am
history. >> reporter: now a couple of big themes that donald trump is pursuing this week, immigration and outreach to african-americans. he has that speech coming up saturday at the church in detroit. last night adjusting his language on the campaign trail ever so slightly after being criticized for painting a bleak picture for most if not all african-americans in this country. listen to how he slightly adjusted the language last night. >> millions of african-americans in this country have succeeded greatly, but we must also talk about those who have been left behind. the millions suffering in disastrous conditions in so many of our inner cities and neighborhoods afflicted by total poverty, drugs, and horrible, horrible violence. >> reporter: ending at the top there, millions of african-americans who have succeeded greatly and they should be celebrated. let's not forget the problem of the people mired in the inner
3:05 am
city. a huge day for donald trump. there's only one way to put it. we'll be here following it. >> i think it's great that he's going down there. the invitation was extended to hillary clinton and to donald trump. he's the only one that accepted it. they're going down to the president's residence to meet. >> in a recent interview the president of mexico said, yeah, we can't afford to pay for at that wall. i don't know what you're talking about. >> i'm not going to blank and blank pay for the wall. >> the former one did. this current one says we don't have the money to pay for that wall. i wonder how the conversation will go. >> mexico's policies are hostile to the united states. it helps mexico. this is what you do when you win, you meet with people who criticize you. i think trump should have done this to a bunch of people. i think he should have met with former president bush because it sends the message, i'm the winner. >> i have the power. i'm fine to go face to face with you. if you have an enemy, it would be very nice of you to go to their door, knock on their door
3:06 am
and hash it out in person. >> it conveys strength. >> that's a good point, too. think about this, tucker, you and ainsley. you have hillary clinton who has -- it feels as though she has a secure lead in the hamptons for three straight days on the heels of spending three days in los angeles, flat out raising money. not doing anything of significance. coming out and calling donald trump a white supremist. she can't stop. i would be so much happier for her or america if she was sitting on the beach, jenga or something else. >> she's relentlessly raising money. >> for what? >> where donald trump is going to be at a black church saturday, taking questions in detroit. tonight he's got the huge meeting. i'm pretty sure it's mexico first. >> well also this morning we have learned that the fbi is now saying that there were 30 e-mails in that latest batch of hillary clinton's e-mails, 30 of them that were related to
3:07 am
benghazi. these are just discovered. >> just unbelievable on top of that that all of these e-mails had to be retrieved by the fbi after she said her lawyers went through and said everything not work related was there, let alone this being the content. >> i think you've totally missed it. with all respect i remember vividly hillary clinton saying she turned over all her e-mails. she said it more than once. >> i think she did. >> did you put together a montage? >> maybe our producers did. did they? oh, here it is. >> we turned over everything that was work related. every single thing. personal stuff we did not. >> all i can tell you is that i turned over every work-related e-mail in my possession. >> what we turned over were more than 30,000 e-mails that i assumed were already in the government system because they were sent to system. >> there were some that were recently discovered.
3:08 am
>> that was in the state department. not me. i turned over everything. >> my e-mails are so boring. i'm embarrassed about that. they're so boring. so we've already released, i don't know, 30,000 plus, so what's a few more. >> she swore in a federal court, she swore to you, the american public that she released all of her e-mails. guess what? we're learning this morning and we learned many mornings ago, too, because it keeps developing that that lse. >> but the state department has them and they are saying it's going to take a full month to vet 30 e-maile-mails. a federal judge has said, no. hurry up and doing it. they're dragging their feet. they're going to redact it. now keep in mind all of these e-mails were in the fbi's hopper when they decided that she should not have been indicted, right? this is all part of what the fbi already put together. what we're finding thanks to judicial watch, thanks to the fbi's work and thanks to
3:09 am
citizens united is it's great interest to america if you want to know what kind of president the former secretary of state will be. this is her judgment. this is what she decided to do. this is what she decided to turn over. she's going to blame the lawyers. i'm sure she's going to say my lawyers didn't do a good job. >> the damage has been done. that's the tragedy. not even related to who wins, they have shaken the faith of the average person in the honesty of basic american institutions like the fbi and the state department. have you ever thought the fbi was not on the level? i haven't until this season. they make all of us cynical about our government. >> why is it, tucker, that the state didn't redacted information and released them a month later. why didn't they have the power? >> they're covering for hillary clinton. they have for the last year. they shouldn't be doing that. >> it doesn't even matter what's in the e-mails when it's released. many people feel like our hands are tied. >> there's a couple of things. they're going to go through them for intelligence purposes.
3:10 am
i don't look at the fbi as somebody that's letting me down. they went out there and said what we were able to require, it was irresponsible. he didn't go out there and say, it looks good to me. he wrote down everything that was a problem. he answered honestly. he said i don't think there's enough there to intight but i have a problem. >> he said if someone else did this that person would be in deep trouble. >> it makes you feel like the system is not on the level. >> that's my point. >> i hate that. >> that's my point. >> good morning. >> let's hand it over to -- >> bring it to a crashing halt. heather, lift us up with some good news. >> good morning, tucker. great to see you back here. how have you been? good morning to all of you. senator john mccain and sheriff

in the e-mail scandal and investigation. now the bureau will make some of its investigation public as early as today. so what could it mean for the democratic nominee? let's talk to former fbi agent chad jenkins who is also a former u.s. army ranger and found beer of the jenkins group. first off, chad, what do you think we're going to learn from the notes? not a transcript. >> correct, brian. it's not. i think we're going to see a lot of the information the fbi has but they've already stated it's not going to be the entire report. it's going to be what they decide to release from that information. i think hopefully what comes of this is that we will see that the american people can decide whether probable cause was met whether hillary clinton conducted criminal activity. i think oftentimes direct oor comey said there was not beyond a reasonable doubt to submit
3:19 am
there was a crime committed. for a federal indictment the standard of proof is only probable cause. >> you know what's so interesting, chad, maybe you can shed some light into this. she was told to hand over everything that was work related. she handed over 55,000, deleted 30,000. they said i know there's more out there. went back to other things left in the frame and some cyber talk and got thousands more on their own. right there i have trouble if i'm investigating wondering if my subject is being candid with me. do you have the same feeling? >> absolutely. and when we look at that, how is that not intent to hide and mislead and flat out lie? i mean, we talk about general petraeus and him hiding the binders of classified information. how is this any different? the only difference is we haven't uncovered the 14,000 still missing. we don't know what's on there. if that's not intent to be
3:20 am
deceitful, i don't know what it is. >> now we find out amongst those e-mails are 30 that have something to do with benghazi. is there a thought in your mind, chad, that this might be good for hillary clinton the more light that's been shed? because so far it hasn't been. >> well, i mean, all the light that is permeating from this i think hopefully for the american people, the biggest thing we can take from this is getting as much knowledge as we can so that come november people -- an educated people can make the right decision to put forth honorable people in office. >> right. and people want donald trump to be candid about his taxes. first they have to find out if hillary clinton will be candid about what she did as secretary of state. chad, thanks so much. thanks for your service to the country. >> thanks, brian. coming up straight ahead, here's an interesting way to fight crime. how about put serial numbers on bullets to trace them back to the sellers. really? why aren't we tracing them back

3:26 am
the narrative that they want to tell. what is interesting about last night is it was the night of the incumbent. everybody's been telling this story, at least the mainstream media has, that, you know, trump is hurting down ballot candidates, they're not going to be able to win. republicans had a good night. incumbents had a good night. the trump candidates didn't necessarily prevail but strong incumbents did. it's very, very interesting. you want to tell a story from that. the story that americans may be telling us, they want change, a disrupter but they may want to surround him by strong, solid change. >> do they want change? people . john mccain, rubio, debbie wasserman schultz. >> incumbency is king. in 90% of the cases incumbents win. the only thing that's really new is now we know who will be in
3:27 am
the general election. what we need to look at when looking at the down ballot race in the house and senate is the relative performance of the presidential candidates. that's much more telling about what will happen in november than what happened yesterday. >> yeah, what are your thoughts, michael? >> i think the house race with debbie wasserman schultz we can put to the side as an outlier. she has been in the office long enough to have gerrymandered her district. >> she's the establishment. >> she certainly is despite the controversy. but florida was especially interesting because there they're saying in a presidential match-up talking about national issues, national campaign we pick trump republican primary voters. when it comes to representing our state's interests, we want our guy who we voted for previously. maybe contrary to my colleagues, there's buyers remorse. they're saying maybe we need to hedge and put in the guy we didn't choose in the primary and make sure he's in the senate.
3:28 am
>> you don't agree with that? >> i just don't think we know yet. every day we're seeing trump tighten the polls a little bit more. it's hard to say there's buyers remorse. i think people do want to hedge their bets. it's going to be very interesting to see and certainly we look forward to states like missouri who has the bell weather effect, has been known for always choosing a presidential candidate. right now they have a gubernatorial candidate who is a real disrupter, outlier like trump that they picked over three or four other candidates. it's very interesting as we start to look ahead to the other states what's going to happen. >> thank you. kathy, cliff, michael, we appreciate it. >> thank you so much. how would you feel sending your kids back to school with an al qaeda terrorist? one u.s. university just hired one. seriously. and in the wake of colin kaepernick's refusal to stand during the national anthem, f-16

3:46 am
champion of the middle class and will get people back to work. that's the whole point of his campaign, he says. will his outsider appeal actually get working class voters to the polls? here's a man to tell us, former strategy director to british prime minister david cameron. the ceo of proud pac. steve helton. >> a lot of people in the trump campaign and outside of it have drawn a connection between what happened in the brexit vote in june in the uk and what's happening in the u.s. now. this kind of revolt of ordinary people against what they perceive to be the ruling class. do you think there is something like that going on globally? >> yeah. i think there's a real connection. i don't think you can read too much into it, but i think there's a basic fact of life which is that for the last few decades actually it feels to many people, working people, whoever they vote for, whether it's in the uk, labor government, conservative government in america, if it's republicans or democrats in
3:47 am
charge, nothing seems to change in their lives. what they see is technology and globalization reducing the economic security that they've been used to. and so they're basically saying, we've had enough of it. we really want a change. that's why i think the underlying message of brexit really resonated in the uk. i think it's the same story with trump. there are different countries but the underlying resentment about the fact that lives don't seem to be getting better right across the economy i think is a really significant factor. >> not right across the economy. at least here in the last two years under obama, 90% of the income gains have gone to the top 1%. it's not like nobody's benefitting. >> yeah, very few. i think that has been the consequence of changing in the economy. go back decades now the way the economic power has been centralized in the hands of fewer and fewer big companies and giant global corporations and the way the tax rules and
3:48 am
regulations have allowed those who are the insiders to really make the most of it for themselves while star tops and entrepreneurs and school businesses really struggle. so i think that's also adding to the sense of resentment. >> do you find it striking that a billionaire is holding himself out as a champion of the middle class? >> it's interesting, actually. when you look at trump, of course he's got some of the characteristics of the very people that a lot of people really hate, but actually if you think about the business world that he's been in, construction, what that has done, i think, is brought him into contact, direct day-to-day contact with working people in a way that most people with his wealth don't normally -- don't normally get the chance to encounter. i think it has given him kind of an affinity of the lives of real working people coming out in the way he's communicating in this campaign and the way he can relate to people. >> if you were advising trump and you were trying to help him make in roads with middle class voters, what would the message
3:49 am
be? what would you recommend? >> focus on that economic message and do more of it. the fundamental components of his economic plan do represent the kind of change people want to see. i think that if he makes that clear, if you elect me we're going to have a change of direction working with a republican congress, i think that's another really important factor in all of this. remember that when it comes to economic policy, congress is really the reverse. what you might see if you have a republican in the white house and republicans controlling congress, an end to the gridlock, real progress, pro enterprise policies. if he sticks to that message, then i think he will do very well. >> no more noise. great to see you. >> thank you very much. next up, our son was murdered by an illegal immigrant. a message for donald trump. what she wants to hear him say. plus, millions of americans refusing to vaccinate their children even with the mumps

♪ it is a great debate that we have heard for years about vaccines and autism and even the link between the two has been disproven, a shocking new survey finds 73% think that vaccines aren't necessary. 73%. that, as a mumps outbreak is growing on long island, with at least 36 people infected now. where is the disconnect?
3:54 am
we have a doctor here who joins us to answer all of our questions. good morning, doctor. >> good morning. >> i know you'll say get vaccinated. >> what we have to remember is vaccine save lives. we know children born in the last 20 years, over 21 million hospitalizations and 732,000 deaths will be prevented by vaccines. so they literally save the lives of people. remember, vaccines are safe. they're very effective. and they really help protect not only us but other people who can't become protected, like those who are very young or have weakened immune systems and can't get vaccine. >> kids with cancer, or babies who are too young to get vaccinated. the flu shot, we don't give it to them until 6 months or older. the baby who is 2 to 3 months old is still very vulnerable. they protect the whole community and large. >> are you shocked by that
3:55 am
number, 73% of people don't think you should get vaccines. >> i really am. i really am shocked by this. this was a study, survey of pediatricians when asked why they thought their patients and parents were not getting vaccinated, they felt overwhelmingly that most people felt vaccines were unnecessary. that couldn't be further from the truth. there's an kpanl pl of it. let's take measles, for example, or whooping cough or polio, these are conditions we don't see much. >> they were eradicated. >> for the most part they were. but buy and large these have been eradicated because we have vaccines. >> what do you say to the parents who are too scared to get their kids vaccinated. what do you say to those parents that are too scared to get their kids vaccinated? how do you convince them? >> i'm a family doctor. i was seeing patients last night. i had people decline getting vaccines that i offered them. it's something i deal with on a
3:56 am
daily basis. if you're concerned about g getting vaccines, tell your doctor but tell them why you're concerned. we need to talk about fact versus fiction. i'm so glad you said it, but vaccines do not cause autism. that's very, very important. we need to have that dialogue. but the other thing is, remembering how much they save lives. some people have concerns about the immune system response and things like that, but we really know that for most people vaccines are very, very safe. the most common reactions are local reactions. you might get a sore arm, maybe a low grade fever in kids and things like that, but most people do very fine with them. >> thank you, doctor. >> thank you so much. coming up, the communist castro regime has a horrible human rights record. wait until you hear what's happening today between the u.s. and cuba. and it's child prodigy week here on "fox & friends." you'll meet a 10-year-old cellist who will get your

4:03 am
donald trump got the jump. this is a thing that a journalist would die to be in that meeting. here is a mexicanpresident, like a donald trump to hitler, donald trump who said that mexico is taking advantage of the united states. he is going to build a big wall and in a call and response now that his audiences across the country has gotten used to -- every time he shouts out who is going to pay for the wall? the crowd shouts back mexico. this is a dove tail curtain raiser at a big speech he'll give in phoenix later on today, 9:00 a.m. eastern time, lay out a detailed plan for combatting illegal immigration. one of the big things he'll talk about is what to do with the millions upon millions of those who entered this country illegal. kellyanne conway gave us a preview. here he is. >> no a amnesty, no legalization, no sanctuary cities. dealing with 11 million or so,
4:04 am
he wants to abide the law, enforce the law which is a novel concept in washington. people who committed a crime, they're gone. then he will see one of the toughest speeches on illegal immigration in modern political history. >> kellyanne conway making the point to brett last night, these policy speeches that donald trump is giving all kind of fit in with his on going debate preparation. she says while hillary clinton is giving one speech a week in which she is talking about donald trump, trump is out there talking about the issues. you can also make the case that she is much more well versed on all of the issues, not just domestic but international as well, and that trump needs to be out there giving these speeches to lay down markers he can draw in the debates. but it certainly will be interesting on september 26th in new york when the two of them finally come together on the stage which one is better prepared to handle the issues and how will they attack each
4:05 am
other and deal with each other in terms of whose debate zingers that audiences for decades have wanted to see. those are the things really that can turn the debate more than policy ever could. back to you. >> it's so funny. such different styles, such different experiences and such different preparation. we can expect the unexpected. john roberts, great job. >> le have to be prepared for her going after him and attacking him. >> on details. >> and he's not going -- he's going to have to control himself and not fight back. that's at least what a lot of people want. >> when tucker looks up to the side in the right, he is imagining something. what do you got to say. >> i think that debates are tough. she's very experienced. i think this move going to the president of mexico is surprisingly nimble and smart and agile. this is what he didn't do after he won the primaries. he didn't go meet with a lot of his critics. this is a guy the president of mexico who liken to hitler.
4:06 am
that's like the most over the top, repulsive unfair thing to say. it's so awful to say something like that and trump meeting with him, i think, is a sign that trump him being magnanimous, this is what you do when you win, you meet people you vanquished. >> the invitation was extended to hillary clinton and donald trump. he is going to meet at the president's residence and rudy giuliani is going and so is jeff sessions. >> yeah. and you know, interesting -- i guess governor pence will introduce him tonight in arizona. >> at 6:00 p.m. >> you noi know what i found fascinating over the past two weeks, it's been a lot, you look at the demographics, not many people said max out the african-american votes and minorities, you know what's happened, he is focussing like doggedly on the african-american vote, talking about them in their communities, going to do it saturday as well as the hispanic vote.
4:07 am
>> maybe that's one of the reasons that we're seeing the polls narrowing and the immigration stance. the far right is going to vote for him no matter what. many of that group want to see illegal immigrants being deported, but i think the people in the middle, they like the fact that there's going to be a wall. however, they don't want families separated. they want children that are born here to stay with their moms. >> mass, low wage immigration hurts everyone at the bottom of the income scale. trump will not win a lot of black voters. >> he's doing -- romney won 6% of the african-american vote. the nbc poll has trump 8%. it's low, it's better than romney. there's perspective for you. the immigration issue i really think is a real winner for him among black voters if he can sell it. why is it good for black voters! it's not. it's terrible. they know that. >> kellyanne conway told us on the radio yesterday, it's more important for the voters to see
4:08 am
the wall built up and enforcement done than it is for those here illegally who have not broken any laws to be deported. that's what he'll talk about tonight. >> the illegal immigration. democrats have been selling this lie to working class americans. we're all in it together. no, unemployment rates are really high in certain communities partly because we're importing tons of cheap labor. it's supply and demand. it's really simple. >> are y'all shocked that there's another e-mail controversy this morning? >> hasn't stopped. it has not stopped. >> i'm enjoying it. >> there were 30 e-mails recovered from the fbi we're being told that involve or related to benghazi and these are hillary clinton's state department e-mails. >> if you're trey gowdy and you sat there in the select committee trying to investigate for over a year what the bottom line is and what the truth is behind that and came up with their conclusions and interviewed hillary clinton and you think you have all there is or you think that that's all you can get, and then this emerges
4:09 am
what are you thinking? >> you would be pretty surprised. didn't she promise us in explicit terms she turned over every single e-mail. >> you go to the tape or turn on fox and friends and see this -- >> we turned over everything that was work related, every single thing. personal stuff, we did not. all i can tell you is that i turned over every work-related e-mail in my possession. what we turned over were more than 30,000 e-mails that i assumed were already in the government system, brett, because they were sent to addresses. >> sure. but there were some that were recently discovered and turned over. >> that was the state department, not me. i turned over everything. >> my e-mails are so boring. i'm embarrassed about that. they're so boring. we already released, i don't know, 30,000 plus, so what's a few more? >> wow.
4:10 am
>> 15,000 more. 15,000, what's a few more? 30 of which related to benghazi, which has been a constant source of conversation and inquiry for those who fought over there, those who lost loved ones. when our ambassador gets assassinated. >> right. i don't think those e-mails are boring to those family members. >> they don't belong to hillary clinton. these are government e-mails. they belong to us, the taxpayer. they do and they're being held by the state department which says it will take months to declassify them and get them ready for public consumption. >> they're saying they're going to release her schedule after the elections. well, thank goodness now a federal judge is making these e-mails be released before the election. >> judicial watch is submitting questions she has to answer in writing. with a team of lawyers, she'll find a way to get around them. meanwhile, where is heather now? >> she's inside. >> where am i?

senate as well from republican to democratic hands as mccain noted, there's a possibility of two, three, even four supreme court nominations for the next president to control the senate will be critical. republicans may start shifting their argument in the weeks ahead to rally conservative voters behind the idea that they need a gop senate to make sure they have a check on the possibility of a clinton push to reshape the supreme court, guys. back to you. >> thank you, ed. >> live from washington. >> thanks, ed. >> no big surprises last night. we'll see what happens in the general. heather? >> she is inside. >> so humid out here, be glad you're inside, heather. >> it's nice and cool inside. good morning, everybody. good morning to all of you. news coming in from overseas, this is a disturbing one. an american who has been held captive by the taliban pleading for her life in a new video. coleman and her canadian husband are warning that the terror group will kill them and their
4:36 am
children unless the government of afghanistan stops killing taliban prisoners. they were taken captive in afghanistan back in 2012. they've given birth to two boys with her husband, she has since then. the state department is looking over that video right now. that's the information we have. we'll bring you more as we get it. 15 months later, a law that was meant to keep our boys in blue safe from ambush-style attacks has been stalled in the justice department. president obama signed the blue alert bill into law last may. they have yet to implement a single plan for it. even after the recent attacks on police and violent riots like this one, the justice department said it took more than a year to figure out which office would be responsible for enforcing the law. outfit outrage, a mother furious after a teacher forced her daughter to throw her shoes away and then walk around barefoot. this happened in simpsonville, south carolina and parents say the teacher got mad because their 6-year-old was playing
4:37 am
with her sandals. that little girl reduced to tears before being forced to dig them out of the trash. the district says it, quote, does not tolerate embarrassment or humiliation as a form of punishment. tom brady may want to spend his four-game suspension getting hair style advice from his wife gisele. check out his new hair-do. he unveiled it during a press conference. that looks nice. clean cut. and then it had the internet in an absolute field day. one person tweeting tom brady got his haircut like a '90s power ranger. another says brady may want to pick up on molly ringwald because it looks '80s and another comparison to matt damon in "goodwill hunting." he will spend september proving theer rums as part of the janitorial staff. what do you think of the haircut? brian used to have a mullet, was
4:38 am
that, brian? >> a rat tail. >> everybody looks at tom brady and goes, what can't he do? he looks good in every haircut. jet fans hate to say that, too. he is suspended for six games to start the year. thanks, heather. let me tell you what's coming up now -- he coached more than 400 football games, leading a national championship as well and the only person to win the heisman twice both as a player and coached the heisman trophy winner ch steve spurrier last season hung up his iconic visor and catalogs his career in his brand new book, joining us now is head ball coach himself, steve purrier and here is his great book. coach, great to see you. >> thank you, brian. >> coach, lot of times life slips into football and it happened before we started talking about what you experienced in college. let's talk about the pros. the team you used to play for for many years, you had colin kaepernick say i'm not standing for the national anthem.
4:39 am
coach steve spurrier coaching the 49ers, what do you do? >> if i was coaching, i would probably try not to make that big a deal of it. people have a right to express whatever their feelings are. we may not agree with it, but i think he has the right to do that. but again, i wish maybe he were to express it in a different way. we all love the flag and it represents more than i think the issue he was talking about. but again, i don't know sometimes when something happens you just let it go away. >> if you'ret's not starting anymore and then you create this kind of controversy and you're a first-year head coach like the san francisco 49ers in chip kelly, do you just cut that problem? >> no. i think he hopes it just goes away in a week or two. but time will tell, i think. >> coach, i loved reading your book from day one. first time i saw you, wiping the heisman as a young guy and say
4:40 am
your going to fight john brody for the starting job in san francisco. you play over ten years in the nfl. because you were a backup, that helped you become a great coach. how? >> i think it definitely helped me the last ten years in the nfl, the backup quarterbacks, they don't have to play. we don't -- >> you don't get beat up. >> best job in pro football, by the way backup quarterback. but watching from the sidelines and sort of watching the coverages and things like that, i think maybe helped me later as a coach. especially coaching quarterbacks, you know, give the quarterback a play that somebody is open and things like that is important. >> what struck me about your career is that you're always learning and admitting mistakes. you're at duke, turn that program around. after the bowl game is played, you're getting blown out and one of your players went you coach him said you're not my coach anymore. >> that was true. i told the guys right before the bowl game i was going to florida to take the head job down there.
4:41 am
i think a lot of them probably knew it. i hadn't announced it. later. i should have waited until after the bowl game because. but texas tech would have beaten us any way. they were better prepared and they were more ready than we were. >> university of florida means what to you? >> it's my alma mater. it's where i met my wife 50 years ago. and we had tremendous success there those 12 years and now i'm back as ambassador/consultant, so i get to hang around the team, try to help out any way i can. >> what are you going to be doing this weekend? >> i'll be down there in the swamp. for some reason they want to put my name on the stadium, so we'll have the dedication and hopefully a big win. >> what's trending right now? you're going to be? >> mr. two bit. two bits, four bits, six bits a dollar. they have a former player usually come do that before each game. >> coach steve spurrier, remarkable career as a player
4:42 am
and heisman trophy winner of course and tremendous coach in many different areas from south carolina to duke over to florida and of course with the redskins. congratulations on the book, coach. we'll talk more on the radio. >> you care about leadership, you'll pick this up. meanwhile, coming up straight ahead, hillary clinton trying to see what makes donald trump tick hoping to get under his skin at the debate. dr. keith ablow is here. look how happy he issing loose. the amazing story behind this photo. this has all of america rooting for florida state this morning. ♪ you got a friend in me ♪ if you got trouble, i got them too ♪ ♪ you stick together and see it through cause you got a friend in me ♪ ♪ yeah, you got a friend in me tablets. so now, there are more ways,

4:47 am
well, psychiatrist and fox news medical dr. keith ablow is here to assess the strategy. it's great to see you this morning, doctor. this doesn't sound like a crazy strategy. it's something every presidential candidate does and try to pick apart the other guy's weaknesses. will this work with trump? >> well, sure. it's something that every candidate probably does, probably should do, psychology is a very powerful tool to unearth what does get under people's skin, if you will. listen, with donald trump, kind of what you see is what you get. i have to say, when the small hands issue was raised during the debate, supposedly this got the clinton campaign very excited. man, he is off his game. he wasn't off his game at all. floyd would be standing like applauding standing ovation. to be able to address such an intensely personal issue and say, listen, there's no problem in that department, to me that showed an incredible degree of psychological strength. with donald trump he may make errors in saying what he thinks,
4:48 am
telling us the truth, saying things that are gritty, perhaps attacking with some unkind words, which you can scale back, but you know what, his demons are on his sleeve. there's not a lot of psycho analysis that hasn't been presented already. >> dr. ablow, i was reading this morning that one of the psychologists that they're consulting, hillary clinton's camp is consulting is one of the guys that helped donald trump write "art of the deal" someone that knows him well. >> well, and so good for them, if you will. but listen, i think americans know donald trump pretty well. he's brash. he will tell you what he thinks. he will go to war over an issue he believes in. and he will posture in the deal making. yes, listen, he'll say the mexicans, they're going to pay for every cent of that wall. well, he knows the mexicans are listening and frankly if they pay 68%, it may be a good deal in his mind but he won't show the cards. >> the risk with donald trump,
4:49 am
he's never been in a one on one debate. but he's never been in a one on one. that could be a little different. there's no time to rest. they think he could fatigue. >> yeah. good luck. here is the thing, this guy talks about his childhood, he has four adoring children, he's been married more than once, he says that his life has been somewhat messy, hillary clinton, we know literally almost nothing about the pain she may have experienced in childhood or what her real life story has been. we know only one thing, she's addicted to power she is on steroids. use that as your bell weather. anything that gives hillary clinton more power, she does. stays in a marriage with multiple affairs, doesn't matter to her, she is closer to power. >> thank you so much, dr. ablow. >> her shoes aren't nearly as good. >> and not as many. >> i don't know about that. >> they're all lefties. >> thank you, dr. ablow.

good morning to you and your family. it is wednesday, only two more alarm clocks, guys. it's august 31st, the last day of the month. i'm ainsley earhardt. we have big i election news overnight about debbie wasserman schultz, john mccain, marco rubio. we'll bring you the results. then he compared donald trump to hitler and mussolini, so why is trump about to meet with the president of the mexico in just a few hours? an amazing development. we've got details. >> unbelievable. reporters are going crazy on this and so is secret service. remember when hillary clinton said this -- >> we turned over everything that was work related, every single thing. >> no, you didn't. that's not true. new e-mails uncovered because
5:01 am
the fbi is very diligent and now we're going to get the benefits of finding out what exactly she didn't want included in the 55,000. let me remind you, inside or outside, your mornings are better with friends. ♪ ♪ ♪ oh say does that star-spangled banner yet wave ♪ ♪ or-e the land of the free ♪ and the home of the brave >> some where in america colin kaepernick is sitting. >> you know what, we're not going to ban that. we welcome that. this is a safe space for the national anthem. >> they're going to join us this hour. you have to stay tuned.

that is children's choir from ps 174 is a school district here in new york. >> in queens. >> yeah. >> that's a special treat for you. we incorporate kids into this wonderful labor day leadup to the big weekend. meanwhile, big news last night. >> just a few hours, donald trump is going to head down to mexico and he did make that announcement last night. >> it was a counterintuitive move. meeting with the president of mexico hours before he gives his big immigration speech tonight. what's going to be behind closed doors and what's not? >> joining us from phoenix, john roberts. john? >> reporter: hey, brian, tucker, ainsley, good morning to you. we don't know what's going to be behind closed doors and what is not at this point. here is another thing, donald trump at this moment, not planning to take any u.s. media with him. so, at this time we have to rely on the mexicans for any coverage that we get. he should be leaving his house in beverly hills because he
5:03 am
wants to get there by 12:00 p.m. eastern time. it's little more than a three-hour flight. counterintuitive, you said it, this invitation went out on friday to both donald trump and hillary clinton. donald trump was the first one to accept it. hillary clinton saying, we don't need to meet with pena nieto because we talk with the mexicans all the time. hillary clinton's campaign now saying we look forward to meeting them. wouldn't you love to be a fly on the wall? here is a mexican president who likened donald trump to mussolini and hitler and candidate who has been very critical of mexico for taking advantage of the united states as he wants to renegotiate the nafta deal, accuses mexico of sending criminals and others across the border and insists that he'll build a huge wall between the united states and mexico and that mexico is going to pay for it. all of this, of course, a curtain raiser for donald trump's big immigration speech today in phoenix at the convention center behind me. got a curtain raiser on that in terms of what he'll say from kellyanne conway on the o'reilly factor last night. listen. >> no amnesty, no legalization,
5:04 am
no sanctuary cities. when dealing with 11 million or so, he wants to abide the law, enforce the law which is a novel concept in washington, people committed a crime are gone. and then he wants to see what we're left with. he'll address that tomorrow and i think you'll see one of the toughest speeches on illegal immigration in modern political history. >> and new polls out this morning, abc news washington post little bit of mix of good and bad news for donald trump. bad news all around for hillary clinton. take a look at this, unfavorable ratings, her unfavorable rating now at 59%. pretty much even with donald trump. that is an increase of 6 points from early august, an indication that all these scandals dogging her about te mails and the clinton foundation have been taking hold among women. she has gone up 9 points in her unfavorable ratings while donald trump is actually gone down from 70 points to 65% among women. that's an improvement for him,
5:05 am
though there's a commensurate increase in his unfavorable ratings among men he is now 60%. take a look at this african-american voters donald trump's unfavorable ratings now stand at 84%. wow, that's bad. it's down seven points from 91% in early august. so, in some of these numbers he is actually moving in the right direction while hillary clinton is moving in the wrong direction. ainsley, brian, tucker? >> i wonder why that is. his campaign team changed, john, recently. kellyanne conway, you showed us a clip of her. we'll have her at 8:30 and talk about these issues and the speech tonight. >> trump is going to mexico. the government of mexico is hostile to the united states. very hostile to the united states. do you think there's any chance that hillary clinton will go to mexico and plead america's case, stand up for the united states? there's literally no chance. there is a chance donald trump will plead america's case. >> hillary clinton wouldn't go to baton rouge when her own people -- >> to stand up for our interests? >> not going to do it. she didn't go. she was invited.
5:06 am
donald trump went. >> she said the last time she was in mexico that i can remember speaking publicly she blamed us for the us wanting drugs not because the drugs were coming across the border. >> really? >> i do think this is going to be important because it's unscripted. age which everything is scripted, everything is on the prompted, we have somebody going over to mexico with a president that said compared him to mussolini and hitler, what they'll say together. we know that donald trump said you'll build the wall and pay for it. how is that going to go? >> well, it can only be productive, right? you have two leaders of the countries that need to work together to build this wall, to decide who is going to pay for it and i think it's a great move on donald trump's part. i think you go face to face with your enemies. someone says something about you or your family, it's better to address it head on, clear the air, fix the problem and move on. >> to stand up for our interests. illegal immigration is a pressure relief vafl for mexico. it's a corrupt government. its economy does not serve it own citizens. that country would collapse.
5:07 am
for their president to refer to one of our -- either one of our presidential candidates as hitler is too much. >> right. >> it's outrageous actually. >> by the way, it's not just mexicans, it's other central and south american naxs with people come right to mexico and don't stay in mexico. let's talk about hillary clinton. we know 14,000900 e-mails were released that the fbi had a chance to look at because they retrieved themselves, they said the clinton did not hand over, the state department did not screen. we know that. now we find out that at least 30 of those e-mails contain information about benghazi. >> so you're saying she didn't release 15,000 e-mails, even though she said she turned over all of her e-mails. >> did she really say that? >> i don't know. let's listen. let's play it back. >> we turned over everything that was work related. every single thing. personal stuff, we did not. all i can tell you is that i turned over every work-related e-mail in my possession. what we turned over were more
5:08 am
than 30,000 e-mails that i assumed were already in the government system, brett, because they were sent to addresses. >> sure. there were some that were recently discovered and turned over. >> that was in the state department, not me. i turned over everything. >> my e-mails are so boring. >> mine aren't. >> i'm embarrassed about that. they're so boring. we released 30,000 plus what a few more? >> what's 15,000 more. that's unbelievable. on top of that, it shows less than candid approach in terms of what this means, among the people condemning not only are lack of transparency there but the comingling with the clinton foundation, huffing on the post, "the boston globe" and new york times editorial page. >> you know when "the new york times" etor yal page or left wing media outlets are going after her. >> where were they when she was the secretary of state representing our government, all of us, abroad and the clinton
5:09 am
foundation was soliciting money from people with whom the u.s. government does business. it was an open conflict then and we looked overit. >> cheryl atkinson was on special report last night and said this about the connections -- >> when she's talk about separating herself from the clinton foundation, just to bridge over there for just a moment, if "the new york times" is right and there are these troubled entanglements, how does the separation now really solve that problem if she were to become president? that's water under the bridge where she's already taken money through a foundation from domestic and foreign interests that she will be making decisions about if she's president of the united states and i'm not sure how logical it is say separation now would even solve that. >> she's saying the damage is already done. bill clinton and hillary say if they do win the white house and i say they because they go together, they're saying they're going to cut ties with the clinton foundation. but not until she wins. >> no news organization has sucked up to a politician the way the times has sucked up to
5:10 am
hillary. this is significant. this is like one of the dallas cowboys cheerleaders criticizing jerry jones. this is a big deal. nothing she can do that they would criticize yet they're criticizing this. >> nothing a cowboy cheerleader could criticize of jerry jones. >> wouldn't that be news. >> exactly. >> certainly. absolutely. i also think, too, in the big picture when you have a sunday new york times over the weekend, they focussed on donald trump and his dad in the 1970s about their policies when it comes to tenants in queens as opposed to all this clear linkage that was featured on all the sunday shows hillary clinton and her foundation. >> it would be like if we did a story how hillary clinton's dad once got drunk and told an off color joke. we would be mocked for doing that, wouldn't we? >> does he have one more analogy? >> it's analogy wednesday. we'll hand it over to heather. i want to play so badly. heather, do you have one? >> thank you. we love you, tucker.

chris brown infamously beat up rihanna in 2009, just getting out of jail for allegedly pulling a gun on a former beauty queen in his los angeles home. he was arrested after an 11-hour standoff. he denies all allegations. a former cop now this little baby's guardian angel after saving her from a sweltering car. the temperature inside the vehicle 120 degrees. the policeman saw the baby girl sweating and alone. he didn't think twice before grabbing a sledge hammer and shattering the window. police in new jersey arrested her mother who was shopping for clothes at the time. >> husbands as heroes. one woman sleting the world know how is grateful she is for her spouse. >> in an open letter to her husband, our next guest writes -- it is the breadwinner husband, men like you, who allow women like me to live such comfortable lives. those words getting overwhelming support and ton of hostility, too from people who they threaten. joining us is suzanne varnker.
5:25 am
she joins us live. >> tell us your message. what are you saying here about your husband? >> well, several things. the main thing, of course, is that husbands, in my opinion, get very little to no appreciation for the work that they do on a daily basis to support their families and to do what's needed to be done on the home front as well, just like wives and mothers do. and they get -- when they don't get the appreciation that they deserve and quite frankly need, it wares on them. we have an issue here, i believe, where we have the spotlight too much on all of the difficulties and stresses that women, specifically mothers, face, but virtually no spotlight on men and fathers in particular. this was just my way of in a rather public way, i guess, honoring the work that he does and that we do together as
5:26 am
partners. you guys opened this segment in a very funny way. i was a little surprised how you opened it. i represent what i think is an underrepresented group in america, i call it the 1 1/2 income family. we talk about two income families or single parent families but we don't talk about that group of parents for whom one of the parents moves in and out of the work force over the course of her children's lives to be able to manage some part-time work or owning your own business or in my case i'm self employed. i write. so the life i have in being able to be there for my kids and also have carved out this path is because of my husband, because people who do that have to depend on someone else to lead a very different kind of life that's very steady. and that's what i wanted the focus to be on. >> you might not -- >> does that make sense? >> absolutely. >> you might not go to an office job either, but being a stay at home mom, that is a full-time
5:27 am
job and, in fact, i believe it's harder than going to work everyday. suzanne, i want to show you the audience some of your article. this is the article that you posted online. a lot of people are responding to it. >> it's on fox, too. >> that's right. all we ever hear in the media is what life is like for the hairied working mother. for the working mother. marriages that are more traditional in nature with a primary breadwinner and primary parent are viewed as a thing of the past. and you're getting some criticism, too. you want to respond to that? >> sure. couple things. so this is what's really important to note about that. is that we hear often that there's quote unquote 70% of working mothers in america today. what the media does not share is that half of those mothers are people like myself who really can't be classified as at home mothers or working mothers, we are, as i said before, moving in and out of the work force, we might have stayed home for a few year when the kids were young, then we went back. there are all these other
5:28 am
options that are completely overlooked. but in order to have that life, which i think is the best one working part time or working for yourself, you have to depend on a breadwinner husband to do that. now, that means that there are still -- by the way, there are currently 29% of married mothers who are staying home currently and they're not employed at all. and then there's another half of that 70 that are like myself. when you lump the people like myself in with those real stay at homers who are completely nonemployed, you have basically the majority of married mothers who are -- >> gotch ya. >> okay. >> suzanne, thanks so much. your perspective can be found on it's called a letter to my breadwinner husband. >> by the way, god bleds you. >> thank you. >> think it's great, suzanne. >> you both need to hear praise and tell each other what they bring to the table and you have to work together as a team. >> men aren't evil. >> i get a lot of praise from our producers. >> a ton. >> that's a joke. coming up -- >> it's not.

5:33 am
anne as we welcome you to the couch to go to mexico? >> this is mr. trump's decision, as are all the decisions in the campaign and messaging. he really appreciated being invited by the president of mexico to go down. these two would be leaders talking about the shared concerns between our two nations. obviously illegal immigration but also trades, drugs flowing over the border and it's very important to show that you're willing to work with a neighboring country before you're president. i would contrast this again to hillary clinton's schedule. yesterday she raised a gazillion more news in the hamptons. today we are visiting with the mexican president and going to arizona to give an immigration speech. >> is trump going to bring up the fact that he encourages immigration? >> it will be informational.
5:34 am
these are two strong personalities. i can't imagine they won't be yourself. you can be cordial and still have a productive conversation. this is what leaders do. governor pence and mr. trump went right down to louisiana when they saw people in need. now he is being invited by the president of mexico to have a conversation. not talking about who doesn't like whom and who said what about who three years ago, to discuss the issues that affect both of us on both sides of the border. >> kellyanne, the polls are narrowing, four points -- hillary has maybe a four point lead in some of polls this morning. is that because he brought you on board? >> no. >> is he staying more on point? what do you give credit to? >> no. i think people are seeing more of mr. trump out on the stump and give actual policy speeches, ainsley. you have the scarcity strategy of the clinton campaign, less is supposed to be more. we don't see her. she doesn't talk to the press. she totally disrespects you and your profession.
5:35 am
we're out there giving speeches on law enforcement, defeating radical islam, middle class tax relief, meeting with the president of mexico today and giving speech on immigration. people are seeing the contrast. everybody's polling, voters don't say, hey, i like a presidential candidate to ignore the press, ignore louisiana, raise money. talk to me about health care. talk to me about the economy. talk to me about isis. >> there is a fox poll coming out today. i'm curious to see how it goes, most people are focussing on the battleground states and less about the national poll. quickly on the format, kellyane they'll meet behind closed doors. will we see anything like them acting together? >> it will look like a president meeting with a world leader. in terms of what we expect and planned, brian. that's up to them if they make a joint statement. >> will they take questions from the press? >> there will be press
5:36 am
availability. mexican press, american press. thanks for mentioning the tightening poll. look at the swing states, it's really amazing what happened in the last two weeks. three weeks ago, everybody's hair was on fire. look at the polls. the race is over. the race is over. he can't recover. hillary clinton's number has stayed the same, static. trump is incrementally catching up to her again. we were a little behind there for a while. it lit a fire under the campaign. had us treat ourselves like the underdog. there's nothing that will sharpen the minds, stiffen the spine much like you're losing to hillary clinton. >> i'm amazed by the numbers in black voters. which improved, not dramatically but noticeably in a real way the very same week that hillary clinton basically tries to tie donald trump to the kkk. what is going on there? that's not expected? >> that conversation didn't create a single job, didn't give health insurance to single uninsured person, didn't deter one more radical terrorist from
5:37 am
doing their dirty work. they also look at trump taking his case directly to the voters. you have to give the guy credit. he will be in detroit. he's taking the case directly to the communities of color, but if you give voice, leadership, it's showing up and giving people the voice and listening to their concerns. he's even done that in round tables. we have just the trump tower we've been talking to other places, hispanic leaders, african-american leaders. it's just fascinating to watch how much he loves listening to them. it's not all about grievances. they're talking about their accomplishments and what motivates people in a positive fashion. we'll be the optimist you can, forward looking inspirational campaign that talks about substance. >> kellyann e, how prepared is he? we're getting word this morning that hillary clinton hired a psychologist and talked to some psychologists, one that helped him where his book. so that they -- so she can go head to head with him and maybe get under his skin.
5:38 am
>> hillary hired a psychologist. i won't touch that. but if it's to help get under donald trump's skin, ainsley, why can't she just -- what is she afraid? i'm going to defend obama care. i'm going to explain what i meant last month in my convention speech referring to terrorists as enemies. she can explain why she is not for school choice and charters. doesn't respect home schools. why not show up and have debate on the issues. why all this psychological warfare. she knows the issues don't favor her and it tells you that the only way she can actually win is by trying to make donald trump seem so unpalettablunpalettable >> after tim kaine last week, a governor, a senator, mayor, former head of the dnc now running for vp, just really doing the dirty work. i think of the clinton lexicon and also referring -- i don't like to repeat the criticisms,
5:39 am
but also i think shadowing hillary clinton's slurs about donald trump and some people who we disavowed completely. but that doesn't help anybody. the voters expect and demand a conversation. so, if they want -- look, i think what happens ainsley in these debates is the one thing the american people can see right away is if you're yourself. are you authentic? are you trying to be somebody you're not. in not accepting the invitation to see the president of mexico, hillary -- mr. trump didn't ask me to go survey people to see what they thought. leaders make decisions and they show up. >> kellyanne conway. >> thank you. >> great to' you this morning. >> let's hand it over to heather who has headlines for us. >> good morning, good morning to all of you. dozens of convicted drug dealers will soon be set free as president obama makes the decision to shorten sentences for another 111 federal inmates. he so far commuted more
5:40 am
sentences than the past 0 presidents combined. he cut 673 sentences, including 325 this month alone. more than one third of those inmates were serving life sentences. the administration praising that move is giving criminals a second chance. he was an islamic extremist to say the least and a recruiter for al qaeda, but good news, he's reformed. and now he's teaching at george washington university in washington, d.c. in his 2009 interview, jessie morton said the koran commands him to, quote, terrorize disbelievers. listen -- >> terrorize the disbelievers, this is a religion like i said. the koran says very clearly in the arabic language -- this means terror rise them. it's a command. >> it's a command from ala. but morton says spending years in prison has now changed him.

new controversies swirling around the clinton campaign this morning around hillary clinton's support for huma abedin's mother. it's under fire because she has apparently some radical ties and they have been exposed mostly by the man we're talking to now. his name is paul sparery, new york post columnist, author of a book called "infiltration" how muslim spies have penetrated washington. thanks for joining us this
5:46 am
morning, paul. >> good morning. >> summarize why voters ought to be concerned about huma abedin's mother and what her ties are to hillary clinton. >> okay. so the latest is -- you know about the radical journal that huma worked for, her mother's radical journal for nearly 13 years. now it turns out there's a book she published through the same institute that huma worked for all those years that actually puts out this religious justification for really medieval treatment of women, including stoning adult resz wives, marital rape, killing women who have left the faith and even female genital mutilation of young girls. so some really vile stuff. then i found a video of the mother actually sympathizing with men who beat their wives. i mean, she was on tape. there's footage of her excusing domestic battery and saying that
5:47 am
men are the real victims in the household. >> i'm a little confused here. the one thing we know about hillary clinton is that she is a sincere feminist. she cares and talks an awful lot about the rights and women and girls. here she is in effect making an excuse for system that makes women as property. what is this about? >> yeah, it's really getting harder and harder for hillary to reconcile this, but far from distancing herself from the radical mother, who basically could be the woman could be a spokeswoman for the taliban in afghanistan with some of this radical stuff she is preaching, but far from distancing herself from huma's radical's mother, she turned out -- hillary had an active relationship with this mother. visiting her over in saudi arabia and even inviting her back into the states in washington at the state department for functioning,
5:48 am
including forrums on women's issues as a leading thinker. >> if a republican got up and said i don't think women should be allowed to vote or drive, they have to cover themselves, they're not fully humans or citizens, hillary would denounce a person. but if it's a muslim who says that, it's another form of worship? >> i've given the clinton campaign a chance to -- for her to renounce this relationship and they have declined comment, although they did confirm that huma abedin did work for that radical journal for nearly 13 years burks there's also a national security implication here that's very serious, and it turns out that she was actually over there promising in saudi arabia, the mother, that she would reverse the post 9/11 restrictions on saudi student visas. and she delivered on that promise big time. the number of saudi visas skyrocketed since she made that promise to the mother over there
