himself. keep going. >> it's the tortoise and the pig there. >> keep going. >> absolutely. >> fight to the finish. >> good thing for the day. don't give up. >> good to be back with you. >> yes, nice to be here. >> "fox & friends" starts right now. bye. good morning on this tuesday, it's september 6th. hillary clinton finally holds a press event. it's been 275 days aboard her brand-new campaign plane, but it is cut short by this. >> every time i think about trump i get allergic. >> why #hackinghillary was the number one trending topic in america. >> we're not talking about the russians hacking hillary this time. >> no e-mail hack. then some of america's top generals and military leaders just released a letter moments ago, 40 seconds ago. why they say donald trump is the
3:01 am
best candidate to be commander in chief. you're going to hear about that shortly. yes, bret meigleson is calling -- bret michael son is calling for all of his friends. let me remind you, summer's over. put away the white pants and your mornings are better with friends. i go away for a week, we have a balcony? where's our balcony? >> i mean veranda. i should say veranda. >> i know. >> welcome back. how was your trip? >> it was great. absolutely great. did a little golfing, did a little surfing, did a little swimming. to top it off -- >> wow. >> last day i stepped on a rusty nail and wound up in the emergency room. >> are you okay? did it go through your foot? >> went through enough to get a tetanus shot.
3:02 am
>> wow. are you okay? >> i'm looking for a little sympathy. >> are you limping? >> just a little. >> putting up 291st century fox flag. >> so we are at the right place. >> labor day weekend you had hillary clinton speaking in ohio. donald trump speaking. she got a new plane. there she is on her new campaign plane. >> right. yeah. she's got to cross paths. ohio is a battleground state. she did 11 events, 22 fundraisers. >> she could afford a plane, right? >> all the reporters on the plane were asking her softball questions. they were asking her how was your labor day. >> like what? do you have some? >> how was your labor day? tell me what you did for labor day? do you want to hear some of them. >> go ahead. >> welcome to our big plane!
3:03 am
it's so exciting. >> what do you think? >> i think it's pretty cool. don't you? >> watch the camera. >> i am so happy to have all of you with me. have you missed it? just waiting for this moment. no, really. i'll come back and talk to you more formally but i wanted to welcome you onto the plane. >> that question that you heard somebody asking, have you missed us? that was andrea mitchell. she also said do you have a labor day message for your fans and whatnot. >> maybe that was -- >> that was the robber. >> maybe that was a jab. you haven't talked to us in 235 days. >> i don't have a problem with that. she did speak afterwards. so i know you haven't seen someone for most of august. >> this is why i think she talked because when she was speaking at the podium in ohio she had a hacking fit. she could not -- she coughed for two minutes. >> two minutes. >> right.
3:04 am
i think she said, let's listen to that and then i'll explain why i think she talked to the press. >> i've been talking so -- every time i think about trump i get allergic. >> well, that was a good line and she had one rehearsed line. if you remember famously earlier in this year she was on a radio show here in new york city, the breakfast club, and she started another one of those hacking fits and she said it was allergy season. so she continues this thing about hacking. here's the thing, unfortunately for her now the number one thing on the twitterverse is
3:05 am
#hackinghillary. it's the top twitter thing. >> is that fortunate for her? >> no, unfortunate. now people are saying, why is her, you know, throat sore, why is she hacking? i know ed klein who's written a couple of books about the clintons, he has talked about how famously she fell down a couple of years ago, got the blood clot in her brain and then she's been taking medicine for that and for a thyroid condition and one of the side effects of the thyroid medicine is you do wind up with these bouts of coughing? >> i was thinking, so she coughed. we all have allergies, we have coughing spells but it doesn't look good when you have all of these conspiracy theories. i'm sure when she was at the podium saying, oh, my gosh, what am i going to say. then she goes on her plane and i think she thought, i need to divert attention away from my hacking from my coughing so let me speak to the press and that's why she went on the plane. >> i think you
3:06 am
>> then she started coughing on the plane. >> otherwise, the lead story would have been this morning, say the kickoff to the campaign would have been hillary clinton's two-minute coughing spree but instead the story is, hey, after 1275 dayze -- 275 das she had a coughing fit. >> kellyanne conway said, i think she's allergic to the media. >> touche. >> john mccain had done this. look how old he is. >> marco rubio asked for water in the middle of his press conference one time. >> his remarks to the state of the union. let's move on and talk about what hillary clinton said about the fact that donald trump went to mexico. the vice presidential nominee tim kaine said he went to mexico but he didn't make the mexican president come out and say, i'll pay for the wall. hillary clinton said, yeah, i do agree. by the way, i'm not going to mexico. she thinks that donald trump had an unsuccessful trip.
3:07 am
i don't think we've spoken. were you on the couch when he went to mexico? >> no, i watched it from my undisclosed location in florida. >> you shut off your phone. couldn't track you. >> here's hillary clinton saying donald trump didn't do well on this trip. >> we saw even more evidence last week that he is temperamentally unfit and totally unqualified to be president. in just a few hours he managed to turn his trip to mexico into an embarrassing international incident. i mean, just look at what happened. he got into a twitter war with the president of mexico. not only did trump mess up his first international engagement, he choked. >> unfortunate for her she then choked. if she said hacked that would remind you of the day that she
3:08 am
hacked. here's the thing about where she said trump had a terrible mexican diplomatic thing. you know, i'm just watching from home and i thought it was great. of course, the mexican president said oh, by the way, donald trump said we didn't talk about it. we did. i brought it up first thing. rudy giuliani said the mexican president brought it up. he said, hey, mr. president, that's off the table. we're not going to talk about this today. that derailed it right there. so we have rudy coming up in the next hour. we'll ask him about that. >> it's just not an accurate portray al. >> she's got to spin it. >> the big debate was over the tone of the speech later that day, then you could sit there and say, i don't like the tone. but to say it's disastrous -- >> the bottom line is, she didn't go to mexico, he did. and was expecting the mexican president to hand over a check. he's not going to write the check. in other news, on the
3:09 am
republican side, donald trump kicking the campaign into high gear, topping a brand-new national poll moments ago. john roberts is live in virginia beach because he likes to go there. it's beautiful. >> reporter: brian, ainsley, steve, if hillary clinton had a coughing fit because of allergies in ohio, this next little bit of news is going to give her hives because take a look at this. a new cnn/orc poll that shows nationally among likely voters, donald trump now in the lead. he's got 45%, she has got 43%. still just a little more than 60 days to go until voters go to the polls on november 8th. with the numbers turning around it shows that this change in direction that donald trump has taken over the last few weeks really is beginning to have an effect. he's going to be here at the
3:10 am
sadler center in virginia beach. yesterday he was in ohio, traditional labor day kickoff to the fall election campaign. a whirlwind trip. no big rallies, just a lot of small events. one of the big things that is going to happen this month, september 26th, the very first debate at hofstra university between donald trump and hillary clinton. trump saying he is going to participate in all three debates and that he is looking forward to it. listen here. >> i'm preparing somewhat like i prepared for the others. i think i'm preparing -- you know, i enjoyed the debating process. obviously i did well in the debates according to the polls, the online polls that they did right after the debates. >> [ inaudible ]. >> hurricanes, national disaster.
3:11 am
i expect -- >> reporter: trump saying that only a hurricane could keep him away or a natural disaster could keep him away from hofstra university. a tropical storm did come through this area a week ago. it's not unheard of for a hurricane to hit at the end of september. i think it's pretty likely, brian, steve, ainsley, trump will be there for all three debates. virginia beach, and going to north carolina, greenville, for a big rally. >> john, if i talked to you the first week of august, by labor day you would be saying donald trump is up 45/43, you would have said i was crazy, right? >> reporter: i don't know if i would have said you were crazy, brian, because i would never cast that sort of aspersion on you, you about the numbers have turned around. their campaign are high fiving it. >> reince priebus predicted it. time to change over to the headlines. heather childress joins us on a tuesday that feels like a monday.
3:12 am
>> nice to be here. good thing they all have that new plane because breaking overnight, another global airport meltdown. thousands of british airways passengers stranded from london to l.a. it happened to delta last month. curious travelers waiting in massive hour long lines as agents handwrite boarding passes. total chaos as some people are forced to put their luggage on planes while others wait hours on the tarmac. no word on when they will catch back up. the fox news alert, chaos at a london city airport after black lives matter protesters stormed the runway. flights coming to a halt as the group changed themselves together. the nine white protestors claiming the protests are racist. a witness says they got onto the runway using an inflatable float from a dock. officers stood with the group waiting for officers to unlock

3:19 am
considerable weight, political weight, behind donald trump. what is it about donald trump she loved? >> well, i will say there's a couple of things. one is she is what we call a true conservative. that means american sovereignty and america's central place is important to her but when she saw trump on a couple of main issues, immigration, trade, she recognized someone who was understanding the issues and then as the race went on she didn't endorse him until march but she wrote about him a bunch of times. then i think she also recognized a man who could win. he has a certain charisma and she told a story about reagan. he wasn't perfect but she said he was so strong and charismatic. >> with trump, he's not weak. he's a strong man with certain charisma. >> we had john roberts on. donald trump is leading. there are a number of conservatives and republicans who are part of the hashtag
3:20 am
#nevertrump. you and phyllis had a conversation about the people who are republicans and consider themselves never trumpers. what did she say about it? >> one of the great privileges. she's been involved in politics since 1946. she ran a race as a 22-year-old. she was a campaign member for congress. i got to pick her brain. a couple of weeks ago i said about the never trumpers, she said do you want a third party, fourth party, fifth party, go to europe. they have plenty of parties. america is a two party system. she's very loathe to criticize others. she says it as a statement about herself. i never fell for that third party temptation. it's a loser. it never wins. it never wins, it doesn't work and it's dumb. it's not a smart move. if you want to make a difference, shape the candidate, make this guy more conservative, whatever you like. we have to have him beat hillary. >> well, she was an american icahn that passedey

quick headlines for you. a real life horror movie coming to life in another community. look at this. police say someone dressed in a creepy clown costume, is terrifying and targeting young kids. this time it's in north carolina in winston-salem. the clown trying to lure kids into the woods with treats. this comes a few days after several parents in south carolina also reported a creepy clown. and kids now have to scan their fingerprints to get into disney world to prevent fraud.
3:25 am
the new requirement is to help block the use of stolen and shared tickets. parents uncomfortable with this new policy can scan their fingerprints instead if that makes them feel better. brian, over to you. >> thanks a lot, ainsley. what does heroism look like? what does it take to change the world? how can we teach our own kids, especially if they're going to school the first time, that's me today, that it's in their power to make the world a better place. brad melter wanted to answer for his own kids so he set out to write a series of books on that very topic. the newest one is called i am george washington in stores today. welcome back. >> not a surprising selection, george washington. what do you want to get across with george washington? >> what's so important is i wrote these books because i was tired at my own kids looking at reality show tv stars and loud mouth athletes. with george washington i wanted
3:26 am
to give them the best lesson. we have so few leaders. i want my son to know what it means to be a leader. this is what the book is there for. leadership in the i am george washington is not about being in charge, it's about taking care of those in your charge. >> yeah. we hear some of the pictures in the book and some of the pages. you'll read this and get a quick competency on george washington, true, false, the cherry tree. things about leadership. these are george washington words. always look out for those who put faith in you. always forge your own road. we do those things. >> that's exactly right. what they're doing is looking out for us. when he finished the revolutionary war, king george of england famously said, he
3:27 am
could have been king of america. we could have made him a king and washington said he's going back to his farm. that's what he did, he did it again and he did it after his second term. i want my kids to see that. that was his most heroic act. having faith in us. having faith in our country. that's what kids need to see today. >> you know what i like that you include in this book, he lost an election. he was basically a middle child. what was he, the fourth oldest? >> i need my kids to see. he ran for the virginia legislature, george washington lost. that's when my young son said, he lost. now george washington isn't some dead guy on a dollar bill, he's just like the rest of us. no one is a hero, brian. we are all born and flawed. you have to excel. >> you write these books. you have a great knowledge of history. are you heartened that they have sold over 1 million copies and

3:32 am
fox news alert. just moments ago donald trump picking up a key endorsement as nearly 90 of america's top military leaders make their case for him to be the president of the united states. in a letter they write this, we
3:33 am
support donald trump and his commitment to rebuild our military, to secure our borders, to defeat our islamic supremist adversaries and restore law and order domestically. we urge our fellow americans to do the same. >> that's part of the letter. retired brigadier general joins us live from tampa st. pete. good morning. >> good morning. how are you today? >> doing great. so, general, why did you decide to come out and publicly endorse donald trump for president of the united states? >> it was a hard decision to be honest with you. the reason i came out publicly was because i know many of the people who signed that letter personally. i know many of the military people who are working with him as advisors. these people are what i call warriors and leaders. they're not politicians, they're warriors and leaders. they have a strong country and a strong military, we need men that are warriors and leaders.
3:34 am
i believe that donald trump will take the advice of these warriors and leaders and do what's right for our country and support our troops no matter what the endeavor. >> very interesting because you have a guy -- you have a woman on the other side, hillary clinton, who's got that foreign relations experience in the senate and a first lady, traveled the globe and now former secretary of state and you say i've seen that resume and there's something about that that pales in comparison to a businessman's resume. why? >> it's not so much i've seen the resume or i say bad of secretary clinton. what it is is very simple. good leaders surround themselves with good people because nobody is that smart. everyone needs advice. and from what i've seen so far, donald trump understands that he needs advice. and he has reached out, and i want to add he has actively reached out to get the right people militarily around him for good, solid advice. >> general, in your opinion what
3:35 am
did the current administration get wrong and what needs to be fixed immediately? >> well, ma'am, first off, i don't do monday morning quarterbacking. i don't have all of the information. there are reasons i am sure that the current administration did whatever they did. i don't know the reasons, all i can do is speak to you from my beliefs and what i believe. would i have done things differently? possibly so. would i have done things the same? possibly so. all i can tell you is this, in a nutshell that i think that donald trump is smart enough to take the advice of the military leaders around him. you know, in the military there are two type of leaders. there are warrior leaders and there are politician leaders and the people that i know that are working with this administration as his advisors are all warriors and they're people that i have the utmost of respect for. >> you know, general, i'm glad you made that last comment because in the last couple of
3:36 am
months we've heard some people being critical of military folks retired who have come out and endorsed one side or the other. but obviously there's something about this particular -- this particular election where you said this is so important i'm going to have to -- you know, i'm going to -- i'm a military man but i'm going to get a little political here and you did it. why did you do it this time? >> very simple. donald trump says america first. we have to protect america and i'm a firm believer in that. i was in the military for 30 years. i lost friends in the military and i will do whatever i can, whatever i think is right to protect our country and the members of the military. and if this is what it takes for me to stand up and come out publicly and say i think that donald trump would be the best for the country mill tearily, that's what i'm going to do. >> lastly real quick, colin kaepernick taking a knee or
3:37 am
sitting down during the national anthem. as a military man, how do you feel? >> you know, i don't know why, but i knew you were going to ask that question. i knew it was going to come around. my saens probably going to surprise you. i respect colin kaepernick for taking a stand. there are so many multi-million dollar@lea dollar athletes who never took a stand. there are so many who wanted to play ball and get their endorsement. they never took a stand. it's very unpopular when an athlete takes a stand. i think colin kaepernick has the right to take a stand. we're always taught, freedom of speech. he's taking his freedom of speech. but in the meanwhile i fought the nfl for this and i'll tell you why. colin kaepernick is a great young man and i use the word young. he's a young man. there should be a mechanism in the nfl for these young players to be educated. there should be a mechanism where if he wants to do something, he should be able to pick up the phone and call and
3:38 am
say, listen, i want to do something. i'm not sure i want to do. what can you advise me to do? or he might say, listen, i've decided not to stand during the national anthem. i'm sure if he had spoke to the right person, someone like myself or one of the advisors that i would have talked about, listen, understand, why don't you instead of doing that because it's going to look bad, make you look bad, why don't you take that million dollars and donate it to the naacp or some other organization that's doing good that's going to upgrade blacks or how about this? how about why don't you set aside five scholarships for young people? >> general -- >> a lot of things you can do. >> general, i wish he had talked to you and gotten your advice. we respect you. thank you so much for your service to this great country. >> thank you very much. you can tell the nfl they can call me and i'll help them out. >> okay. i'll pass that message along. >> maybe trump will call you. >> thank you. 22 minutes now before the top of the hour. time for some news and heather joins us once again.
3:39 am
>> wise words from him. thank you very much. hello to everyone at home. some spine chilling views happening at this gas station for one father as his twin baby girls are snatched right in front of his eyes. all of it caught on camera. take a look at this dramatic video showing the father just inches away from his car in atlanta. baby's asleep in the back seat but when he reaches for the door handle a car jacker hits the gas. the pour gentlemenless and panicked dad sprinting after them but it's too late. the car found abandoned nearby. listen to this. only one twin was inside. the other baby on the side of the road. both girls are okay. the suspect is still on the run. outrage after a group demands a group be scrubbed from a 9/11 monument. it stems from these two words, islamic terrorists. they're saying it's not politically correct and can encourage hate. town officials saying they don't, quote, whitewash things

hispanic unemployment fell faster than white unemployment. by the way, when i told this to tavis smiley, he said i was wrong and he'd have the exact facts on my desk the following monday. that was six years ago. i'm still waiting. >> all right, larry. so if you were to advise donald trump on how to capitalize on diddy saying this, folks have been short changed, what would your advice to donald trump be regarding the black community? >> my advice to donald trump, what donald trump should have said to this black church but republicans are always afraid of hurting people's feelings is to absolutely assault the democratic party. the welfare state has done to the black family what slavery and jim crow couldn't do. that is to create all of these fatherless homes. the marriage between unions in the democratic party means education in the inner city has suffered. unbridled immigration has put downward pressure on wages in the city. he ought to do a full attack on
3:49 am
left wing politics. >> my brother's keeper program had a lot of potential. i think the fact that he became president inspires a lot of people across the world to think they can achieve things in america. so hopefully those type of things come through. >> well, brian, let me say one thing quickly about that. black people didn't vote for obama because he was black, they voted for him because he was a liberal democrat. they didn't vote for michael steel who was black, lynn swaun, tim blackwell in ohio. the primary reason obama won is because he's a left wing liberal democrat. >> joining us from la, larry, thank you. still ahead, it is prayer and patriotism captured in that single image right there. that kindergartener stopping had his tracks to pray and say the pledge of allegiance before school. that boy and his mama are going to join us live. there they are. ♪ ♪

a moment of prayer and patriotism warming hearts around america. this image of a kindergartner stopping to say the pledge of allegiance before school has gone viral. little royce also took time right there to say a quick prayer. >> i said a prayer. god -- thank you, god. thank you for giving me a wonderful day. >> wow. royce and his mom, heather nelson, join us now. good morning to both of you.
3:54 am
>> good morning to you. >> thanks, heather, for being on our show this morning. tell us what happened. if people are waking up and they haven't seen this video on social media, what's going on in that picture? >> well, i dropped royce off for school. it was a little bit like -- the school had just started so it was a little bit like it was close to late. >> you were a little late. >> well, i was still in the line, but the line was a little longer that morning. it had been getting better that morning, it was getting long again. when i dropped him off, i was four cars back. and i noticed he just stopped. i was like what is he doing? i thought he was looking at his shoes. i was like, okay, what is he doing? i couldn't tell him that, because i was still four cars back. by the time i made it up to him, i said to him, go, royce, go,
3:55 am
you're running late. i said it probably again, i think. the officer, she stopped me and she said, he's good, mom, she said. she said he said pledge of allegiance and then he said now he's saying a prayer. oh, okay. i was so proud and of course i'm like i got my camera, i took a picture of it and i was really proud. >> you should be proud. you have done well. why did you do that, royce, why did you stop instead of going into the classroom? >> tell her. tell her. >> royce, did you do it because you heard the pledge of allegiance on the loud speaker? you did? why is that important? why was it important for you to stop? >> because i just did it. >> we're really proud of you for doing that. what did you say in your prayer? >> i said it in my head. >> you said it in your head, you
3:56 am
didn't say it out loud. a little secret to god? i heard you say thank you for your day. i heard you say that in the interview. did you walk in, and what's the response from your teachers and friends because thousands of people have seen this, royce. what are they all saying? mom, do you want to take it over? mom, what are friends and teachers saying? >> it's overwhelming. he's made everybody proud with his little -- with his heart and his love for god and country. it's awesome. >> it is awesome. >> you know, people are trying to take prayers out of school and your son is bringing prayers into the classroom, into the schools. where did he learn to do that? >> well, at home. we definitely represent prayer. >> that's great. well, god bless you both. royce, you keep praying and keep saying that pledge of allegiance. standing up proud.

good tuesday morning to you and your family. 7:00 here on the east coast. it's september 6th. i'm ainsley earhardt. stunning new polls just revealed showing hillary clinton is no longer in the lead. and when it comes to independent voters donald trump comes in 20 points ahead. >> whoa. >> we're live on the campaign trail. you cannot make it up. we're going to talk to you about both candidates. steve? >> thanks, ainsley. fresh out of hiding, hillary clinton tells the press she takes classified information very seriously. >> i went into the state department understanding
4:01 am
classification. i take classification seriously. >> okay. but what does the law say about this. judge napolitano has been examining her comments. >> if you want to get rid of a blackberry take a hammer. she's good at that. a muslim group trying to scrub the truth from the 9/11 muslim. they want it scrubbed to make it more politically correct. rudy giuliani is here to react to that. and more. let me just remind you, you have to get back to school today. please take a shower, shine your forehead and your mornings are better with "friends." >> now, brian refresh my memory, why do you shine your forehead on the first day of school? >> doesn't it seem like kids are so shiny on the first day of school? >> so excited. >> like your forehead -- >> you're right. came going to buff mine right
4:02 am
now. how do i look? >> you have makeup on your tie. >> i'm here with two men who wear makeup. >> do you know how hard -- that's daddy's makeup, yeah. unless your dad is dee snider or someone named kiss. >> do you want to add another comment? we should be talking politics not makeup. hillary clinton is heading south after ohio. >> finally answering some reporters questions after 200 days of no news conference, but the press should be the least of her worries after a new poll that came out one hour and two minutes ago. >> mike emanuel has the latest. hey, what's the latest? >> reporter: brian, steve, ainsley, good morning to you. yeah, nine weeks out from election day, new polling suggests it's shaping up to be quite a race. the new cnn/orc poll reveal that donald trump with a narrow two-point edge over hillary
4:03 am
clinton. with libertarian candidate johnson at 7% and green party candidate jill stein at 2%. no surprise when hillary clinton decided to take reporter questions on her brand-new campaign plane there were questions about whether she understood the classification of the u.s. government's information following what she told the fbi in her e-mail investigation. >> i went into the state department understanding classification. i take classification seriously. in fact -- the fact that i couldn't remember certain meetings whether or not they had occurred doesn't affect the commitment that i had and still have to the treatment of classified material. >> reporter: clinton also tried to go on offense a bit by suggesting that russian president vladimir putin is trying to influence the outcome of this election. >> we are facing a very serious
4:04 am
concern. we never had a foreign adversarial power be already involved in our electoral process. we never had a nominee of one of our major parties urging the russians to hack more. >> reporter: so today it will be battleground florida for hillary clinton after yesterday it was battleground ohio. get used to that over the next nine weeks or so. with indications this morning in at least one major national poll that clinton's post dnc bounce has all but evaporated. steve, ainsley, brian? >> looks like it. mike emanuel, he talked about the brand-new poll that came out an hour and four minutes ago. nationwide amongst everybody it's a two two-point race. when you look at the independ t
4:05 am
independent, it's the independents who elect the president, donald trump is leading by 20 points over hillary clinton. >> right. >> judge napolitano just joined us on the sofa. can you believe this? reince priebus predicted this. like two weeks ago he said trump is going to be ahead labor day weekend, around labor day weekend and now he is. >> well, she's had three very, very bad weeks during the course of which she has not responded. except for the very small first interview in what 247 days, first press conference in the first 247 days on the back of her plane and the essence goes back to the reckless use of e-mails. i spent a day and a half -- while kilmeade was getting a suntan i was read -- i read them in the sun. it takes a day and half to read them carefully and compare them with the public record that is already out there. and i can tell you that the conclusion is inescapable. she was seriously concerned about being indicted. and far -- >> why do you say that? >> because the answers that she
4:06 am
gave to the fbi, if publicized by donald trump to the public, will be devastating to her politically. but helpful to her legally. the fbi was looking for how reckless was she? with state secrets. she persuaded the fbi she wasn't involved in state secrets. she wasn't concerned with whether or not they were secret. contrary to what she just said in the clip we just ran from her plane yesterday, she couldn't care less if something was marked confidential, secret or top secret. that's sort of obliviousness lessens the criminality in the mind of the fbi, but that sort of obliviousness is that what you want in the mind of a secretary of state or the president of the united states? >> you said they tried to trick her. >> yes. >> how? >> very good. they took a document, which was utterly innocuous, without her in the room they stamped it secret. she comes in the room and they hand her the document. do you recognize this? no, i don't recognize it. do you recognize the secret marking on it? she goes, no, in fact, nothing
4:07 am
secret in this document at all. so she didn't fall for the trick. and the fbi is permitted to do things like that. on the other hand, -- >> that proves that she knows what's secret and what's not. >> yes, that was the reason for i. she would lose either way. that would show she has -- this is ridiculous, talking about her mental capacity? she has the mental capacity to read a document and decide whether it's secret or not. so in the margin of many of the documents is the little "c." almost anybody -- almost anybody in law enforcement or in the intelligence community knows that "c" represents confidential. the lowest of the three levels of classification. confidential is lowest. secret is the middle. top secret is the most sensitive. she didn't -- she said she didn't know what that meant. >> right. >> it is inconceivable that she didn't know what that meant. >> she thought it was numbering the paragraphs. >> she thought there was an "a"
4:08 am
and "b" she didn't see. she signed the oath after a two-hour tutorial that she understood these markings. >> since you went through this stuff and i've heard news reportage about this, that apparently she said i don't remember, i don't recall at some point -- >> 39. >> well, that's according to the fbi, but it's not verbatim so hard to tell how many times she said it, she essentially blamed her concussion on the reason she couldn't remember stuff. >> that will help her legally, but in my view it's catastrophically -- catastrophic politically. >> she's got a health problem. >> because of my health problems, i don't remember what the law is? i don't know what a secret -- top secret and confidential, how can she be the president of the united states? she's going have to answer for that. >> that's not good. she says that bill clinton should not have to resign from the clinton foundation. if she becomes president. so he should be taking in money
4:09 am
from donors while she's president. >> we already know that he was taking in money from donors while she was secretary of state. those donors were giving money to him in order to give access to her. in some quarters that's called bribery. the federal government doesn't call it bribery. they have a soft phrase called pay for play. in my view it's absolutely unlawful. but in the next couple of weeks, you are going to see things about the clinton foundation that's going to cause her to change her mind. you will see for many years it was never a registered charity. for many years it said they could donate and take a tax donation and they cannot. they had to give money to the irs. the donations did not match one what the donors said they gave. you will see the amounts of money that bill clinton personally received grossly out of proportion to what a charity should be paying somebody on the board. >> we're about to get the relation of the schedule to see if the a.p. will conclude that
4:10 am
60% of the people that visited her had some connection -- had some connection to the foundation. real quick, what does it tell you about destroying the blackberries with a hammer, having 13 devices and deleting even though congress told them not to delete? >> it was wrong for the fbi not to recommend indictment. i think that they were big footed by the west wing of the white house. they were not told not to do it. >> are you saying that the fbi was political? >> i'm saying the fbi was told what to do. a lot of fbi agents involved in this case are furious at the outcome. hard working, decent, law enforcement men and women who devoted a year of their lives to find out if there's a crime here and believe there was and for political reasons they couldn't do it. but the destruction of a blackberry -- remember she said she used one, she used 13. the destruction of that is obstruction of justice. >> not one democrat has condemned this. they have only backed her. thank you so much for your hard
4:11 am
work. meanwhile, heather childers is poised to give us the news. >> good morning to you. we begin with some sad news though. conservatives around the country mourning phyllis schlafly who died yesterday. she rose to fame in the 1960's for her opposition to the equal rights amendment and abortion. earlier this year, she threw her support behind donald trump's presidential campaign. now, the president of her organization eagle forum joined us earlier do tell us why she was voting for trump. >> what i would call a true conservative. that means that american sovereignty around american's central place in history is important to her. always has been. but when she saw trump on a couple of main issue, immigration, trade, she recognized someone who was understanding the issues. >> she was a great lady. trump called schlafly a conservative icon who led millions to action and reshaped the conservative movement. phyllis schlafly dead at 92. well, breaking overnight to

well, this general led the raid that took down bin laden and now admiral mccraven -- william mccraven has a message for colin kaepernick and it's essentially get up. >> that message slightly different than what we heard from president obama yesterday. >> ed henry is live in washington, d.c., to break it all down. the powerful message. ed? >> reporter: good morning, guys. the president on one hand stress on the asian voyage he's had little time to think about football, while on the other hand it sounds like he's on board with kaepernick's approach. he says kaepernick cares about real legitimate issues and this is about, quote, having an active citizenry. after kaepernick of course kneeled during the standing ovation last week at this preseason game, the president saying this is all about democracy. sometimes it's messy. >> he's exercising his constitutional right to make a statement when it comes to the
4:19 am
flag and the national anthem and the meaning that that holds for our men and women in uniform and those who fought for us. you know, that is a tough thing for them to get past to then hear what his deeper concerns are. if nothing else, what he's done is he's generated, you know, more conversation around some topics that need to be talked about. >> reporter: now, a much different approach from one of the former military commander, william mccraven, commanded the team that killed bin laden and now serves as chancellor of the university of texas system and he instructed his men to stand up straight and stand with their
4:20 am
hands over their heart. he said i spent 37 years defending freedom of speech and freedom of expression, nothing is more important to this democracy, while no one should be compelled to stand, they should recognize by sitting in protest of the flag they are disrespecting everyone who sacrificed to make this country what it is today as imperfect as it might be. interesting, this is one part of the conversation that the president did not touch on. kaepernick recently wearing these socks showing a pig wearing a patrol man's hat. an image that infuriated a lot of police officers. some saying they won't work the home games for the 49ers this years. >> oh, boy. all right, ed, thank you very much. >> yeah. more players are getting on board including a soccer player. meanwhile, a muslim group trying to scrub the truth from the memorial and they want it removed to make it more politically correct and rudy giuliani is here. he wants to weigh in on that as well as the latest news on hillary clinton. and attention, parents. your child's brain on video

4:26 am
how do we fix this before it becomes a problem? >> dr. nicholas kardaras is the author of "glow kids." he joins us now. so you wrote a book about this. >> yes. >> what do parents need to be worried or concerned about here? >> i think it's a significant concern -- i tried to write a book that sort of gave parents the research. because i think a lot of parents intuitively understood that kids staring at glowing screens -- i think we have seen it, any of us who have lived on the planet for the last 20 years have seen the glow kids spreading. i think the parents have an intuitive sense this is a problem, but now we have both clinical and neurological brain imaging research. over 200 peer reviewed studies that show this has an addictive like effect on the child. >> word to the control room. if we can put up the screen again. okay, the person on the left is a drug addict. >> opiate addict.
4:27 am
that's a scan, it's defuse mris. >> make it as simple as possible. >> we're seeing abnormalities that mirror drug addiction on the frontal cortex. so -- >> the frontal cortex -- >> executive functioning and it controls impulse control and correlates with adhd and addiction. >> when does it develop fully? >> so the frontal cortex develops in the early 20s and the kids as they get older are more equipped to handle hyper stimulating, hyper arousing screens. it's clear that people that have been exposed to excessive -- i want to qualify by saying excessive screen usage meet all the criteria for behavioral addiction. it's not just drugs and alcohol, but people can be addicted to
4:28 am
sex and gambling. >> no parent -- i mean, we won't 20 years to give our kid an ipad. >> steve jobs waited ten years. so our recommendation -- and the research seems to show at least out of elementary school that a child that's 8, 9 or 10 years old isn't neurologically equipped to handle such a stimulating, immersive product. we're just not made for it yet. there was one research study that showed that screens recognize a dopamine activating as sex. do we want a 7-year-old having a digital orgasm? and that's how stimulating they are to a child. >> right. you're talking about how when you play a game, you are constantly being stimulated because you want to go get to the next level. >> and the next level. >> there's where the dopamine comes from. not everyone agrees with you, doctor. we have seen this form of scare mongering before. people are frequently uneasy with new technology.
4:29 am
after all, the screens and the computers aren't actually all that new. it's not the screen per se. it's the stimulation of what you do with the screen, right? >> right. i look about in my book that plateau was against the written word. he thought that writing would erode our memory. because back then they used to do oral storytelling. i get it. i was raised in the '70s on pacman. i'm not anti-technology, i have my smartphone. but this technology is qualitatively different than prior technologies and primarily because of the interactive and immersive nature of it. so i'm not trying to be chicken little and say the sky is falling. i'm trying to give parents the information that there are some potential clinical disorders that excessive screen usage can lead to and the research is clear on that. >> yeah, my doctor said two years. my little girl was born ten months ago. he said don't give her any ipads, no tv, nothing for two years that's kind of the standard. >> the american pediatrics
4:30 am
recommend no screen until 2. steve jobs didn't have his -- let his kids have them -- so if they're putting them into nontech elementary schools that should tell us something also. >> kids, go out and play. >> his new book is called "glow kids." something to think about. 7:30 here in new york city. why does hillary clinton keep coughing? here's a theory we haven't heard before. [ coughing ] >> every time i think of trump i get allergic. >> rudy giuliani is here on that and he has got some ideas. plus, a muslim group is trying to scrub the truth from the 9/11 memorial. it refers to the attackers as islamic terrorists and now they want those words removed to make it politically correct. i'm claudine and i quit smoking with chantix.
4:31 am
by the time i was 30, i said "that's it,
4:32 am
i'm a smoker for life." i wanted to be a non-smoker and i did it thanks to chantix. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. chantix reduced my urge to smoke some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. some had seizures while taking chantix. if you have any of these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental health problems, which could get worse or of seizures. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you have these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have heart or blood vessel problems, or develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. most common side effect is nausea. this is for real. i'm a non-smoker. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you. whmade plastics that tmake them lighter?rs

next hour. you as we look back at september the 14th, 2001, you're actually the fellow who introduced the president who is standing with bob beckwith, the fireman, who is going to be with us in an hour. >> yeah. i was there. the president first greeted a large group of clergymen who were there and they said a prayer and then he spoke -- he spoke on top of the pile. >> yeah. >> and then remarkably he remained behind for a very long -- for a very long period of time, to shake the hands of everyone, hug everyone. secret service was very, very nervous about that appearance. the night before governor pataki and i spent a great deal of time on the phone with the secret service to make sure that they were comfortable with exactly where we'd be. it took a lot of courage to do that. i'm sure he did that over the objection of the secret service. >> it was his first visit, right? >> first of all, we were only four days later. there was still fires below the
4:37 am
ground, 3,000 degrees fahrenheit. we thought we picked the right spot but we couldn't ben't know on below. i think it was still flowing from the ground and plus, you might remember the first two months after september 11th, every time you saw a plane, every time -- >> you wondered. >> like when the yankees played the world series i was worried about a plane coming into yankee stadium. so that was a very, very morale raising event. >> 15 years ago that show was shot. 9/11 happened. you lost a lot of people that you loved and cared for here in the city. how's the next story make you feel? there's a monument in owee go, new york, that memorializes all the victims that were lost and it reads this. that it was caused by islamic terrorists. you have the islamic organization of the southern tier they're encouraging that word islamic be scrubbed from the monument because they say it encourages hatred towards muslims. what are your thoughts?
4:38 am
>> that would be like my saying i want the word mafia taken out of the history books because it defames all italian americans. that would be sick. >> italian mafia, that would bother you? >> no, i put them all in jail. my reaction to the italian mafia was real simple. i'm italian american, i don't belong to them. i want nothing to do with them and they represent the bad part of my ethnic background. every ethnic background has a bad part. that's a bad part to the islamic religion and the good part of the islamic religion shouldn't feel at all hurt by islamic terrorism. they should feel angry about it. they should feel like maybe even stronger than i do. they should be wiped out because i felt strongly that people who weren't italian americans and mafia should be wiped out. you shouldn't become defensive about the bad people in your group. that makes it more difficult to overcome it when that happens. >> you know, at the museum they -- a lot of people said i don't want to highlight the terrorists but there is a
4:39 am
highlight of the terrorists. i think it's an important point. >> having lived through, having almost died, you know, in a building i was trapped in for 20 minutes, if it hadn't fell a different way i would have been dead, and that leaves you a lot of pain and thoughts. i never, never was at all unclear about who did this. i mean, that's why i gave the $10 million check back to the saudi princeling or whoever he was, who gave me $10 million for the twin towers fund. said, we don't want blood money. because he put out in a press release that israel was responsible for it, foreign relations were responsible for it. well, i know who it was responsible for it. radical islamic terrorism in that particular case as headed by bin laden. >> let's change gear, can we? >> hillary clinton was in cleveland yesterday. and -- >> she wasn't pleading guilty to indictment yesterday?
4:40 am
>> not yesterday. >> gosh, i thought -- >> there you can see her, tim kaine is looking on. he eventually would bring her a paper towel or something like that she had an epic two-minute coughing fit there. then a little later on she took some questions from members of the traveling press on her plane and had another one. and this kind of goes to what you have been talking about. >> i only said it once and i created like -- oh, my god, i got hate mail. all that stuff. because i saw online about six or seven episodes of that over the last year. >> what do you think is causing it? >> i don't know what is causing it. i said go look for yourself online and you decide what's going on. and my god, the left wing press went crazy. i think there was even an article in "the washington post" that i was crazy. >> yeah. she said yesterday she was allergic to trump, that's why she was coughing. >> ha-ha. i mean, i don't know. it may -- whatever it is it is. my goodness if donald trump had
4:41 am
a coughing fit, you know, five times in the last six months of major proportions, somebody would want to know what's going on? >> and john mccain they would be saying he's way too old, he shouldn't be president. >> i caused a revolution by it. maybe she should answer the question, what's going on? but the real problem i have with hillary clinton is that report, 302s of the fbi. i have read through them over the weekend in great deal. i wrote an article about it and there's at least 20 pieces of evidence of criminal intent that as a prosecutor i don't think i ever had a case with stronger evidence of criminal intent than that. i'm trying to think with a friend of mine who was -- who worked with me. in the u.s. attorney's office. who i was talking to. we were trying to think of a case that we prosecuted that would be stronger than that with destruction of evidence, not knowing "c" means confidential.
4:42 am
if you're a secretary of state and you don't know "c" with pa wrens and capital -- >> it was in the body of the e-mail, just on the side. >> that's where they put it. that's where they put it. i've read many of them. that's where they put it. she said she thought it had to do with alphabetical order. i didn't ask her was an a, b, d, f. if you can't figure out that "c" doesn't mean confidential as a secretary of state, you're stupid. >> she said she didn't send classified information because it meant confidential. so i think it was just semantics for her. >> well, she doesn't get the right to make that decision. the only person who can declassify is the president of the united states. now maybe she thought they was the president. she was maybe having an illusion. i don't think they was having an
4:43 am
i illusion i think she's doing something called lying which violates -- the united states code. >> you can't find it in the g mail. >> that's what martha stewart went to jail for one lie, a couple of years, about a financial matter that had nothing to do with our national security. >> well, thank you very much for doing us. we know you'll on a conference call today to talk about how hillary would not pass the security clearance today. >> couldn't hire her as the u.s. assistant attorney in the southern district of new york because she would not pass the national clearance. >> there's making news later on today. we'll talk about this live. thank you. >> mr. mayor is quite busy. meanwhile, straight ahead, president obama the victim of an attack by the filipino president and it's not pretty. we are live with the president

in a press conference setting. but the press may be the least of her worries, thanks to a new poll putting trump on top. >> mike emanuel is live on the campaign trail in tampa. mike, you didn't have this poll when the day started but things are certainly tightening up now that we're into the sprint to the debates. >> reporter: yeah, brian, steve, ainsley, good morning to you. nine weeks from election day it appears to be shaping up to be a horse race. a new cnn/orc poll of likely voters has trump with a slight two-point edge over hillary clinton and with jill stein and gary johnson in single digits. a big edge for donald trump is with independent voters. look at this number. trump 49% support, hillary clinton, 29% support. you mentioned hillary clinton is now traveling in a new campaign plane. she took some questions from reporters and no surprise, questions about the controversy regarding the clinton foundation came up.
5:04 am
>> do you feel that you've contributed to the perception that there were blurred lines between the state department and the clinton foundation by having several employees who seemed to go back and forth between the two? >> no, i don't. nancy, look, everything i did at the state department i did in furtherance of america's interest and our security. the state department has said there's absolutely no evidence of any kind of external influence. >> reporter: so while clinton is traveling around the united states, battleground states in a new campaign plane for the homestretch of this campaign, president obama is traveling around asia and says that the transpacific partnership would be better than the status quo. that ochx -- that of course put clinton now in an awkward spot. >> well, obviously i don't agree, because i don't support tpp -- and i don't on a range of issues which i have talked about at length. i think there could be actions
5:05 am
taken that would be in america's interest. that would raise income, produce more jobs for americans. and further our position in our security in the pacific. >> reporter: we expect a big push from the clinton team here in the tampa area on the issue of national security today. expect attacks on donald trump saying he doesn't have the temperament to be commander in chief, but the latest poll numbers are making it look like an interesting nine weeks ahead. >> no kidding. mike, thank you very much. let's bring in laura ingraham, down in our nation's capital. she joins us once a week. so the big news, the cnn polls has trump up by two. that's with all of the voters. but then, when you look at the independents and that's the -- that's what everybody wants, look at this. he's got 49 and she's got 29. that's pretty good news going into this sprint to the finish. >> more americans are refusing to affiliate with either party and we have known that for some time. republicans lost a lot of
5:06 am
credibility over the last, you know, 15 years and how they handled matters from foreign to domestic policy to immigration and trade. so this independent number is very important. we know there are a lot of democrats who don't really like hillary that much. a lot of them decide, well, i like hillary -- i dislike hillary less than i dislike trump they'll go with hillary. but that independent vote, i believe is always critical to trump's pulling this out in the end. these numbers -- these latest numbers really indicate that the credibility issue coming off that e-mail scandal, all the stuff we're learning day by day about what she actually did from smashing the blackberries with the hammer, having other people do that, not knowing what classified means or how to categorize it, people -- people aren't buying it. i think a lot of independents are like, look, we've got to just go back to pragmatism and how we handle major problems in this country. a lot of them at least right now are breaking for trump. that's good for him to come out
5:07 am
of labor day weekend with those numbers. >> good news for him. >> i think hillary's total attack plan is not by me, it's reject him. it seems like the best combination was thrown two thursdays ago when she said he was a white supremacist. how much further can she go? >> again, this is all she has. when you have -- when you have america being humiliated on the world stage, you know, the apology tour started in 2009 when she was secretary of state is now a full fledged humiliation tour for the united states. >> you're referring to what happened in china. they didn't roll the stairs up to air force one, vladimir putin berating for 90 minutes this president -- >> yeah, the philippine -- that philippines leader, rebuking america. we had an embarrassment in cuba when the president went there. remember the tarmac issue when the plane landed. we had iran putting our navy men on their knees on their shipped, been buzzed by russia and chinese aircraft. we had the iranian vessel
5:08 am
approaching our military vessel, at a high rate of speed in the waters off -- was it the strait -- the gulf coast, near the gulf region. this is never ending so she's not going to be able to discuss how america is stronger and the world is safer. all she has is donald trump is mean spirited or he's a bad temperament or bad judgment. after she says she doesn't have the memory of the 26 different questions by the fbi and he doesn't have the judgment or the temperament? gosh, this doesn't make sense on any level unless she's lying about it. >> i wanted to ask you about her coughing attack. yesterday, she was in cleveland, ohio, coughed for two minutes straight. can we hear a little bit of her
5:09 am
coughing. well, she coughed for two minutes and she said, i must be allergic to trump. which is a clever way to get out of it. she's so upset about coughing because so many people have been talking about her health. and kellyanne conway said, must be allergic to the media. she started to answer questions from the media. then she had another coughing fit. >> yeah, i mean i think -- you know, someone is not telling the truth, maybe they cough a lot. everyone has a tell when they're not telling the truth. what's your tell? maybe that's the tell. i don't know. it's a little bizarre, old tim kaine right behind her. what was he doing? >> help her out. >> playing checkers back there? what was he doing? give the woman a glass of water. that really is the thing that struck me. tim kaine is supposed to be this great force for the ticket. the one thing you need is a little help when you're coughing. he can't even get up and take the microphone. talk about disengaged from what's happening. maybe she'll cough during -- you know, any tough questions during the first debate or the forum on

make a long overdue course correction in our national security posture and policy. as retired senior leaders of america military we believe it can only be made those not deeply involved with hollowing out our military and facing the burgeoning threats around the world. for this reason, we support donald trump to be the next commander in chief. one of the 88 retired generals and admirals who signed that letter is remow butler, he used to be one of the commanders of the special operations forces. he said it was a difficult decision at first, but one he's happy with. here's what he said on "fox & friends" earlier. >> i think that donald trump is smart enough to take the advice of the military leaders around him. and in the military there are two type of leaders. there are warrior leaders and there are politician leaders. and the people that i know that are working with his administration, as his advisers are all warriors and there are people that i have the utmost of

5:25 am
american votes from boots to suits. >> the purpose of ns 2 serves teach and certify a select group to become consultants. at the end of the program, they guarantee a job to all that graduate. the hope among the team that created this model is that other companies who say they want to hire vets will do the same. >> fox business's cheryl casone sitting right next to me with an update on the amazing program and introduce our guest. >> they're here in person, finally. we're joined now by the chairman, and u.s. navy veteran joseph kernen and along with the graduate, woodson and maine and ramos. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> the program it's been two years since we were all together. how is it going? >> it's going great. i think when you first did the program we actually started the first class, we didn't have any graduates. we have over a hundred graduates. every one of them is in a job.
5:26 am
a few of them are still -- they have a choice between a number of jobs so it's gone extraordinarily well. >> such a great program. but there are limitations. you can only take a certain number of people. >> yeah. we'll take -- the program is internally funded by the company, s.a.p./ns 2. and so this was a plan. so we funded internally. i mean, we turn away far more veterans that are far more deserving. 97% of every dime we get goes to more veterans. >> you get 300 applicants for each class but you -- i think the first class was only 20 people. >> yeah. only 20 people. >> a small group. jordan, i want to ask you you're a graduate, you're now working and you bought your first house. >> yeah, it was very exciting. it was life changing. like it just changed my life completely. i just bought the house. you know, when i first went into it, i thought it was a certification program. but it was so much more.
5:27 am
you know, it taught us soft skills, it brought us together as veterans. and, you know, it was just -- it was amazing. life changing. >> yeah. stephen as well i know that you went into the program. kind of challenging for you and you came out the other side and it changed how you react in the corporate world. >> yeah, i had separated from the air force and i was being a substitute teacher in baltimore. and then i found out about the program when i was going to pursue my master's degree from another alumni from the program and, yeah, it just completely changed my life. now i work for s.a.p. and it's great. >> how has this program changed your life? >> where can i start? it's changed it -- it was hard to take care of my daughter so she was not living with me. so it gave me my family back.
5:28 am
i currently work for accenture in san antonio and we have adjusted amazingly. so i don't have to depend on anyone. i can just take care of my family now. >> and the program is such a blessing too because, i mean, really most people that are trained on s.a.p. software, we're talking folks with mbas. you're bringing in these amazing individuals. >> i have had the fortune to serve aside the men and the women in the armed forces for almost 36 years. i'm a little biassed to the character traits that they have. they'll succeed at anything. why would an employer not want to take someone who committed to the military and then they're committed and they're courageous under stressful conditions. i mean, they have the aptitude for it and the learning piece is the easy -- give them the skill set. i mean the employers are the beneficiaries. it's been extraordinary to see how -- i had complete confidence they would be, they haven't
5:29 am
proven me wrong. >> sounds like your message is for people who have jobs to fill out there, think vets. >> yeah. i think the transition piece is important. they have the skill sets. invest in the veteran. they'll bring all the other qualities to your environment and they will thrive and so far the employers they're asking for more graduates. >> if people would like more information about the program -- >> ns 2 i'd encourage people to get the word out to veterans to apply because our intent is to grow the program. you can contribute there and figure out a way to partner with us. most importantly, just replicate the model. invest in the veteran and find him a job and ultimately the measure of success is that job. it's been really -- >> and of course, got the ball rolling two years ago with that story. meanwhile, coming up on a tuesday, that feels like a monday, a muslim group trying to scrub the truth from a 9/11 memorial. it refers to the attackers on
