3:04 am
recommending it should be. while he had a number of ideas how to increase military spending, how to pay for the whole thing is really the devil in the details. donald trump going after hillary clinton and barack obama very hard yesterday for what he called pursuing failed policies overseas and not being respect d by world leaders. listen to what he said. >> right now, part of the problem is nobody gets prosecuted. you have reported and the gentleman can tell you, a report of rape and nobody gets prosecuted. there are no consequences. >> that was donald trump talking last night at the commander in chief forum about the issue of sexual assault in the military. they ran the wrong piece of sound there. let me tell you about that. he was asked at this forum aboard the intrepid who said his daughter wanted to enlist in the military, what he would do about sexual assault. when his daughter saw the statistics of sexual assault in
3:05 am
the militarmilitary, she decideo enlist. the whole exchange with the moderator after that kind of looked like it was pre-planned. i know you'll talk about that in a second. education.mp today will be he's going to be going to cleveland. he'll speak at an inner city charter school in cleveland. and as an indication that even charter schools need some work. that school recently received a rating of d by the state. the issue of education, like the military, the only one that requires an awful lot of attention and these are some of the big problems that are going to be facing the next commander in chief, the next president. which is why this election on november 8th is so important. ainsley, brian, steve. >> john roberts next to the bike rack in front of trump tower. john, thank you very much. hillary clinton lost the coin toss so had to go first last night. >> because donald trump said i'll go second. >> right. >> he did. right off the top, the liberals, you go online and liberals are

3:06 am
saying they grilled her for seven minutes about her e-mail and at one point he asked somebody in the audience, i believe, a navy vet to ask a question of former secretary clinton and here's her question that she got from him and a bit of her answer. with a new excuse. >> secretary clinton, how can you expect those such as myself who are entrusted with america's most sensitive information to have any confidence in your leadership as president when you clearly corrupted our national security. >> you know and i know classified material is designated. it is marked. there is a header so that there is no dispute at all that what is being communicated to or from someone who has that access is marked classified. and what we have here is the use of an unclassified system by hundreds of people in our
3:07 am
government to send information that was not marked. there were no headers. there was no statement, top secret, secret or confidential. >> that goes against everything that we all saw in the fbi investigation that she did receive and send classified information. but she keeps sticking to that. >> she dodged the question. because the fbi found 110 e-mails contained classified information. >> that and's the problem. you can have a credible questioner but if the moderator, it's certainly not matt lauer's job maybe. but if they do not hammer on the facts, we're never going to get the answers. they were simmering in the green room, heard that, said this. >> paraphrase ronald reagan, there she goes again. she came up with yet another new e-mail excuse. let's review the bidding. it's getting complicated now.
3:08 am
first she said there was no classified information on my server, fbi says that's not true. then she says no classified information at the time, also untrue. then she says nothing marked classified. also untrue. now she comes up with a new excuse, there was nothing with a classified header. that all classified information has a header. first of all, that's not true. and law says she's required toe protect that information whether marked or unmarked. the fbi director said she should have known. second, if there were classified information on her server without any headers, how did it get there? the way it got there was she and her staff took the headers off. classified information can't just appear. it has to be entered in. >> that's right. he makes a great point. we talked about it. brian remembers this. it was about a year ago, we were talking about how it was revealed in one of the e-mails we saw between hillary clinton and jake sullivan where hillary clinton told jake sullivan to take the headers off.
3:09 am
so there was an instruction with her inner circle, hey, take off those headers. that way she can go out on stage on the intrepid and say there were no headers, because her staff took them off. >> her trouble for e-mail scandal, her trust issues with the voters, this is why donald trump is doing better and better in the polls. lindsey graham who ran against donald trump in the beginning as you remember, he has come out and said that trump is getting better, you can see a more disciplined message. if he can hold it together for eight more weeks, he thinks he can win. >> might be donald trump's number one critic and first critic on the right. >> right. donald trump was asked about some of the things he's said. in the past, he said i know more than the generals when it comes to beating isis. is that true? here's the question and the answer. >> so let me read some of the things you said. i know more about isis than the generals do. believe me. is that the truth? >> the generals under barack obama and hillary clinton have
3:10 am
not been successful. >> do you know more about isis than they do? >> under the leadership of barack obama and hillary clinton, the generals have been reduced to rubble. they have been reduced to a point where it's embarrassing for our country. you have a force of 30,000 or so people, nobody really knows, but probably 30,000 people and i can just see the great, as an example, general george patton spinning in his grave as isis we can't beat. >> a lot of generals were forced out. >> yeah. >> think about the last 7 1/2 years. general petraeus and a way to keep him. general mcchrystal, the rolling stone story. he was obstinate in the early end to the surge in afghanistan. he gets dismissed. >> general madison a couple of days ago came out and said i've got huge problems with barack obama's long-term winning strategy when it comes to isis. i see nothing but a bunch of half measures. what he's saying there and is
3:11 am
what donald trump is saying being weighed as accurate. by saying a lot of generals have been dismissed and maybe saying a loet of generals are unhappy with the strategy, i'm not alone. >> their hands have been tied. general odierno said we pulled out of iraq too fast. we'd be on track if our military stayed in. lieutenant general michael flynn is going to join us in about 90 minutes and he'll tell us his thoughts. you know what hillary clinton was thinking the entire half hour when she was on -- do you know what she was thinking? >> don't cough. >> exactly. >> don't cough. >> where is the water? >> who wants to toss to heather? >> i will. >> hi heather. >> good morning everybody. i got some breaking news to bring you. panic on a packed plane at 30,000 feet in the air. a woman sets a blanket on fire on a jetblue flight out of new york. the fbi says that she not only
3:12 am

3:18 am
government for goat en the perpetrators were perpetrated by iran. >> why did we pay them billions of dollars? louie gohmert is here from the d.c. bureau. >> congressman, connect the dots here. a lot of people feel that saudi arabia was involved in the 9/11 hijackers. how is iran involved? >> from what i understand, they were helping to assist the terrorists into going in and out of afghanistan, assisting the taliban or helping in the various ways with the training. the state department acknowledged for quite some time, including, i'm sure clinton doesn't remember brain -- she knew they were the largest sponsor of terrorism and to be sending them pallets of cash and we know now that money
3:19 am
is going to the military and to support terrorism, it will be killing americans and christians, and killing jews, israelis, it is unkconabluncona. >> i was a former federal judge. if you provide somebody the money to buy weapons and you know they've made clear they're going to use them to kill innocent people, then you are as guilty of murder as the people that commit the murder. and we know what they're going to do with this money. it is reprehensible. by the way, one other thing i haven't heard anybody mention about hillary clinton in classified, the secretary of state is supposed to have the power and ability to look at information and say, this is serious, i'm classifying this. she's supposed to have that power. apparently, she must rely on interns, somebody's brain who is not in a blender to look at things and say, oh, secretary of
3:20 am
state, that really should be classified, let us put something on there so even you can figure it out. this is dangerous for this person to be running for president of the united states. >> real quick. is congress doing anything about this, looking at the $1.7 billion? >> yes. the house, we've had more than one vote to try to make sure that people can sue the iranian government and hopefully we're going to get that into law and hopefully the president won't stand in the way. >> hillary clinton is standing by to double down on it. >> unbelievable. it's consistent with the clinton administration back in the '90s. they made deals with north korea. north korea helping iran. we're still stabbing israel in the back. some things just continue to be consistent. >> yep. people know what they're voting for. thanks a lot, congressman. appreciate it. >> you bet. coming up straight ahead, a lot more show. 2:50 in fact. we know one presidential

3:27 am
things, all sorts of therapy. we threw ourselves into everything we could possibly do. medically, there's not a lot that's available. we did biomedical treatment and therapies. really, it was the breakthrough that we had doing a particular method that for about a year i had been working with him and then all of a sudden one day, even though he had kind of marginal success up to that point, i was using the children's bible to read him a lesson from. i was reading about how jesus healed the blind man. i said josiah, what did jesus he-e-a-l or pla-l-a-y with the blind man? he's nonverbal at this point. he chooses heal. then i said, okay. let's spell heal. i had the ipad up with all the letters and so he presses g and he was -- he presses h. he was missing it. actually, he presses g and then
3:28 am
o and ends up spelling god is a good gift giver. >> wow. >> his first ever independent sentence. i had never given him those words. >> what did you do? >> i thought i was on candid cam rachlt i thought i had cracked or is this real. it was amazing. it was a moment where i really believe and felt that we had a divine experience happen. >> it's amazing that he didn't speak and now all of a sudden he can read and he can write and send you messages on his ipad. >> the great thing about an ipad, everything that he writes is saved. everything he's ever written is saved on an ipad. by now, it's like hundreds and hundreds of messages that some are just normal everyday things that he wants ice cream. but actually, he started writing these beautiful wisdom words and poetry. things that are extremely profound. that really has been the most amazing thing for us. not only has he been able to

she's on the verge of losing two consecutive presidential races because, in part, because of her vote on the war in iraq. she lost to barack obama in 2008 where he pounded her about the war in iraq vote mercilessly and now donald trump is taking a serious position to her on this. >> hillary clinton and donald trump in head to head the military forum, kelly ann conway. who made the best case to become commander in chief? hear to react is our panel, former army intelligence officer andrew peak is here. former helicopter pilot, smith, and former u.s. navy s.e.a.l., carl hig by. >> amber who are did bet center. >> i think donald trump was a little stronger when it came to it. hillary clinton came off as very
3:34 am
defensive. she got a lot of questions with her e-mail and how she handled classified information. i thought she was having to play catch-up with that. donald trump seems to be stronger. but if this is a preview of the deebts, i hope they're going to answer all the questions with a little bit more substance. >> andrew, let's talk about iraq in particular. it turns out hillary clinton apologized again for a vote in iraq. defending what she knew on the armed services committee, what she knew as first lady and co-president. >> she's responding to our base. hillary clinton never really recovered with the progressive base for voting for the iraq war even if, on the face of the intelligence, it made sense to go in in, 2003. >> instead of saying that, she says i blew it. i made a mistake. that's what kelly ann conway is saying, correct? >> right. she's saying that. the fact is that hillary clinton has never been on the red side of a foreign policy dispute. she's jumped headfirst into every dispute with libya, iraq
3:35 am
and she's always come out on the wrong side. every single time, she's been on the wrong side. how many more times can we afford these mistakes. >> she was for going into and hitting in after -- in syria like bob gates was, but barack obama didn't listen to her. >> i want you to hear what they talked about when this came to generals. donald trump was asked, do you know more than the general when is it comes to isis. here's his explanation. >> you said, i know more about isis than the generals do. believe me. is that true? >> the generals under barack obama and hillary clinton have not been successful. >> do you know more about isis than they do? >> i think under the leadership of barack obama and hillary clinton the generals have been reduced to rubble. they have been reduced to a point where it's embarrassing for our country. you have a force of 30,000 or so people, nobody really knows, but probably 30,000 people, and i can just see the great -- as an example, general george patton spinning in his grave as isis we
3:36 am
can't beat. >> a lot of generals lost their jobs because they spoke out against the administration. what do you think, amber? >> i think i understood what he was trying to say. generals under the obama administration have almost been brought down to a point where they're not allowed to have a voice when they make recommendations for the war, when they're telling the truth about isis and what we need to do in terms of strategy to win that war. it becomes political. as it goes to the secretary of defense and president obama and that doesn't fit with their agenda. >> general jones resigned because he wasn't being listened to from the administration. you have general conway was upset about the afghan policy, he was basically told to go retire. andrew? >> i don't know when the military judgment of generals became such a sack row sink issue for the left. i remember in 2007 when code pink ran a full-page ad in "the new york times" saying general petraeus, when general petraeus came down the hill to testify that the surge is working and hillary clinton said nothing.
3:37 am
in fact, accused petraeus of lying to the u.s. >> you have to suspend, disbelief to think the surge is working. >> you did adding and subtracting about the generals. >> here's the big thing to take away from the debate, prior to that, he said yes, i know more than the generals. they can beat him over the head with all of that. after the security briefings, the one thing he took away and said our generals do know what they're talking about, obama is not listening. with donald trump's presidency, 30 darks give us a plan. let's accomplish the plan. >> some retired. >> many of the ones left are the ones who kept their tail between their legs and didn't say anything when they should have. >> when you get a security briefing, do you tell people and give people an opinion when you're briefing a presidential candidate or just tell them the facts as they are? donald trump seems to think he was reading body language they
3:38 am
weren't happy. >> you're not supposed to recommend policy even at the highest level. however, humans being what they are, if you are briefing with the most classified secrets, you will have an opinion about the direction that the united states is taking. >> can i ask you about the sexual assault question. are you glad that was included? >> no, i'm not. that was a tweet that was brought up over three years ago. and i think when you see what donald trump was saying, that the ratio is incorrect. you have 26,000 people bringing up some claims of sexual assault or sexual harassment, he was saying, look, the ratio isn't the same. it's less than 300 people prosecuted, the numbers don't add up. once again, i think people are misinterpreting what he's saying. i got what he was saying. i brought the conversation up again in terms of how to combat it. >> it was amazing in a wide open forum how matt lauer had the sexual assault stats handy when i don't think even our brain room would have gotten them that quick.
3:39 am
it seemed like a setup. >> they need a stronger mod ray for tore the debate. coming up straight ahead, a woman named heather nauert will do her best to dlifrt news. >> thanks, brian. one presidential candidate not above the law. the green party nominee, jill steinhas a warrant out for her arrest. stein is facing vandalism and trespassing charges in north dakota after she spray painted construction equipment after a protest. she signed i approve this message on the blade of a bulldozer. also a warrant out for her running mate. here's something we don't see every day. mosquitoes on the floor of the house of representatives. congressman dally bringing the jar of mosquitoes to motivate congress to approve funding for the fight against zika. >> can you imagine the fear and anxiety if the mosquitoes were outside this jar, not inside this jar.
3:40 am
members of congress would run down to the physician's office to be tested. >> senate voted down the bill three times because it's attached to funding or doesn't have the funding to support planned parenthood that the democrats want. outrage over the move i have sully by the investigators who looked into the crash. >> this is the captain. brace for impact. >> the investigators say that the movie portrays them as prosecutors looking for an excuse to blame captain sully. they say that can't be further from the truth and called sully a national hero. the pilot managed to land a plane filled with people on the hudson river in 2014 after it lost both engines. all of the passengers, of course, survived. if you thought millennials were feeling the bern, they're actually leaning to the other side. young adults born between 1980 and 1994 are more conservative politically. the current view as liberals might be due to their age. but if you compare young people
3:41 am
now to young people in previous decades, researchers found they're considered to be more conservative. those are your headlines. back here in about a half an hour. >> that's a headline right there. >> no kidding. let me tell you what's coming up. i talked so much, why don't you do it. >> breaking breakfast news, brian. you'll never guess who is serving waffles now. >> i hope it's starbucks. >> it's a good tease. meanwhile, another day, another excuse. a new one from hikts about her e-mail scandal. this time, she's blaming it on the headers. what it all means? judge napolitano heads i "the new york times" says will make -- believe it or not the president has one book

3:47 am
any material that was marked or designated classified. >> turns out that wasn't true either. so she changed her excuse last night to this one. >> classified material has a header which says top secret, secret, confidential. none of the e-mails sent or received by me had such a header. >> okay. so that's her new story. there are no headers. let's talk to fox news senior judicial analyst, andrew napolitano who is not buying it. >> i'm not buying it for two reasons. one, it's factually incorrect. there were some e-mails marked top secret and there were some marked s.a.p. which stands for select access privilege. the highest specie of top secret. so secret, you had to enter in a special code to receive it and special code to open it and read it and special code to retain it and a special code to send it on

and she knows that. more important, steve, and this keeps getting mixed in the weeds of the law. on her first day in office, mrs. clinton received a 2 1/2 hour tutorial from two fbi agents, just the two fbi agents and her, on her legal obligation for recognizing state secrets and for preserving them. at the end of that tutorial, she signed a two-page oath. under oath, swearing that she understood her obligation to recognize secret material, whether it has a header on it or not. >> judge, didn't she tell the fbi, i don't remember those things? >> she did. she did tell the fbi -- >> she said i don't remember. >> correct. the fbi in her interrogation, so far as we can tell, portions were redacted, did not confront her -- you can get it online when she took this oath. the fbi in my view should have been more aggressive with her. her answer to matt lauer last night was profoundly
3:49 am
disingenuous and highly misleading. >> but it's her latest defense. when you think about it, what was revealed in an e-mail that we saw a couple of months ago, she was talking to jake sullivan, one of her assistants at the department of state and how they didn't have a secure machine. she told him, if you can't fix it, just send it without the headers. she said, send it -- the classification markings off of it. >> use your home fax. right? that shows a willingness to expose national security secrets to a nonsecure vendor. that shows intent. espionage is a crime that doesn't require the government to show intent. isn't it fair to conclude with all the different justifications and explanations she's given, with all the fbi found that she was reckless in her concern for whether or not she was securing state secrets? that's the standard for proving guilt.
3:50 am
recklessness. >> how did you think overall she did in that seven-minute grilling by matt lauer on the e-mail? >> i didn't think she did well. i think she revealed on her fac but i think she revealed in her face an extreme discomfort because she's being deceptive yet again. >> thank you very much for reporting for duty today. what do donald trump and babe ruth have in common? you're about to find out, so stick around. who's ready for some football? aensly is. what about brian? we're putting them to the test. and we have jerseys, and you know what? they're new jerseys.

4:03 am
had to deal with questions and the secretary of state's office was first and foremost. so there are ways of talking about the drone program. >> reporter: then there was the issue of isis which hillary clinton says donald trump does not have a clue about. hillary clinton says she wants to take out isis, but does not want to use american ground troops. >> so we need to wage this war against isis from the air, on the ground, and online in cyberspace. and here at home for goodness sakes, we have to finally pass a law prohibiting people on the terrorist watch list from being able to buy a gun in the united states of america. >> reporter: her answer on isis ignores the fact that there are thousands of american ground troops currently serving in iraq. she will return here to charlotte, north carolina, a critical battleground state where the united states military has a huge presence to lay out

4:05 am
most sensitive information to have any confidence in your leadership as president when you clearly corrupted our national security? >> you know and i know classified materials is designated. it is marked. there is a header so that there is no dispute at all that what is being communicated to or from someone who has that access is marked classified. and what we have here is the use of an unclassified system by hundreds of people in our government to send information that was not marked. there were no headers. there was no statement top secret, secret or confidential. >> so that's her new defense. remember in the very beginning when she was over at the united nations and dit a press conference, no, i didn't take -- i didn't send anything that was top secret or classified. now she's saying there was no
4:06 am
header. judge napolitano was with us about 15 minutes ago and he said you know what, that's not good defense because it's all inaccurate. >> it's factually incorrect. there were some e-mails marked top secret and there were some marked s.a.p. which stands for select access privilege. the highest specie of top secret. her answer to matt lauer last night was profoundly disingenuous and highly misleading. >> isn't it fair to conclude with all the different justifications and explanations she's given with all of the fbi found that she was reckless in her concern for whether or not she was securing state secrets? that's the standard for proving guilt. >> and they did a big effort yesterday, elijah cummings tried to bail her out saying here's an e-mail from colin powell saying he recommended she go ahead and get her open private e-mail and devices because this way, you can use contact basically off line. bottom line, she had a server. then she upgrated the server
4:07 am
midstream and nobody at the state department stopped her which is malpractice on her part and their part. also when it comes to the military how can you say that you're serious of stopping isis and stopping the next san bernardino, the next orlando, the next 9/11, the next ft. hood, how you be serious and rule out ground troops? if you could stop that, you have people on the ground now. 4,100 on the ground right now. and you're ruling out ground troops? it's an insult to our intelligence and not practical. >> basically if you like the way the country is going now, vote for hillary clinton and if you don't, vote for trump. >> it wasn't just an e-mail account, but a gizmo in her basement, she said it's never been hacked. although, you know -- >> they don't know that. >> she said, maybe it did happen. >> giving you a preview of the debates.
4:08 am
>> there was an interesting observation by jason chaffetz who revealed yesterday of the 12, 13 gizmos, her devices, do you know where she got them? she bought them on ebay. she bought them on ebay because she liked the older technology reportedly and somebody was selling the old blackberries. that's where she got them. >> so crazy. this is a woman who wants to be president of the united states and she buys her electronics on ebay. wow. >> meanwhile, a lot to go over there. a lot at stake. this is considered now a two-point race or a dead heat race. battleground states are all within striking distance. it might come down to debates. with donald trump such an atypical candidate, how will he prepare for these debates? typically, you get somebody to play your opponent, like laura ingraham or carly fiorina perhaps but that's not what donald trump has been doing. >> no, people are wondering who's advising him. lots of people are asking the advisers how is he preparing for this? newt gingrich was talking about
4:09 am
his methods of getting ready to this. he compares him to the famous baseball player. >> it's a challenge, but i think you have to be very careful about it because trump is like one of those -- little bit like babe ruth. a great natural athletes who doesn't do all that well in practice. but some extra adrenaline -- >> does he practice at all? >> i think he practices all the time, but not the way that normal people do. my sense is if he'll sees you, gee, brit, it will be 40 seconds he'll listen very carefully and lock it back here. >> ultimately, if -- you know, you've got to be careful though about how you present your answers. because if you were watching the commander in chief forum, hillary clinton opened up with essentially admitting that she made two mistakes. it was stupid for me to have the private e-mail account. server. it was a mistake me voting for iraq. when your first 20 minutes are apologizing essentially is for decisions you made and when it
4:10 am
comes to judgment, that's kind of a -- that's a trouble some thing. >> and newt, he's a natural. he could walk in and do great in the debate, however, donald trump has to study if he wants to be successful. however, if hillary pointed out something that was flatout wrong or inaccurate, he has to study what she has been said and have a specific answer as opposed to you're not telling the truth. he has a chance to score or not. >> right. we have 18 more days until the first debate on september 26th here in new york. >> i'll be traveling out to hofstra. i wonder what it's like at that time of the year. >> i think we're going with you too. we're staying over at your house. >> well, the marriott might be better for you guys, to be honest. >> all right, newt gingrich is coming in at 8:00. we'll talk to him more about the debate process. in the meantime, heather joins with us a fox news alert. >> i do. ainsley, you can stay with me at the seasons and steve can stay

4:12 am
hour. abdeslam arrived under heavy security in paris. they hope to learn more about isis and the strategies and his possible accomplices to the attack that left 130 people dead in november. prosecutors say he was wearing a bomb vest the night of the attack but got cold feet and then went into hiding. here is a story that turns tragedy into hope for one family. do you remember matthew gerald? the rookie police officer from baton rouge who was deliberately shot and killed during a black lives matter protest back in july. well, that protest claimed the lives of two other officers. jerrell's wife announced she is pregnant with the couple's third child. when she learned the news, she said she wanted to cry but at the same time it's exciting. even more incredible though, she believes she became pregnant less than a week before her husband's death. that baby is due in april. so we're wishing her the very
4:13 am
best. a blessing. >> wow. >> those are your headlines. >> heart breaking but hopeful at the same time. >> bittersweet. >> one last gift. >> indeed. all right. coming up on a thursday, apparently the father of our nation isn't inspiring enough to have a school named after him. by george. at least that's according to the head of one major school district. more of the controversy brewing coming up this morning shortly. >> yeah, what do you accomplice? and donald trump is closing the gap in some states. lisa boothe is crunching the numbers. at least she told us she did. here's the latest on the election. you guys, donald trump just revealed he's not practicing for the upcoming debates. he has not been using a stand-in for hillary which explains why

glad you're up. donald trump is holding a slight lead in a brand-new national poll. in a four-way race, in the cnn/orc poll has trump with 45, clinton with 43, johnson with 7 and stein with 2. is this a sign of things to come for trump or has he peaked? where is this race heading before we go into the polls you want to discuss? >> i think it is certainly tightening. that's a combination of things. one, the race naturally tightening as we go into november 8th and there's a heightened focus on hillary clinton. heightened focus on her failures as a secretary of state with her private e-mail server and the clinton foundation. donald trump has done a better job of staying on message which has allowed the media to focus on the things. >> that's what the media is saying, kellyanne conway certainly changed the message. when it comes to trustworthy, hillary clinton suffers the
4:19 am
most. and donald trump has an advantage. 50 to 35. why does this matter? >> what it comes down to is enthusiasm. we have seen that this in the poll that donald trump voters are more enthusiastic about getting out to vote. if you're a democrat and you're not that enthused about hillary clinton and then you start hearing more about the clinton foundation as well as the fbi -- or her private e-mail server and you don't like what you hear, that could potentially mean that you want to stay home. you don't want to go out and vote, not excited. >> a lot of people would say that when donald trump was airing a lot of ads in virginia, like hillary does with him, that would push that number even higher. let's look at the male vote. this poll shows that donald trump -- this is his greatest advantage. 54-32. what do you think? >> well, it could be a general gender breakdown as far as the candidates go. but i also think that donald trump seems to lead with sort of a stronger rhetoric. giving the appearance of a little bit more of leadership that could be a reason why men are more inclined to vote for
4:20 am
donald trump. so that could potentially be a reason. >> so when it comes to the efemale vote, clinton has a 53-38 lead over donald trump. how does he cut into that? >> she's running as the first woman president and that helps with the young, single women voters. that's where she's reaching as well. i think he improves his numbers by staying on message. being more of a disciplined candidate. i think his tone could be off putting to women. so that's important for him to continue to stay on message. >> right now losing almost every battleground, but not by much. could that change? >> that could change. look at wisconsin, particularly as a battleground state. i think if he continues to do what he's been doing post convention. or at least post that rough spot post convention staying on message, giving some of the substantive speeches he could do that. >> lisa boothe, thank you very much. still ahead, donald trump slamming president obama and

4:33 am
i think under the leadership of barack obama and hillary clinton, the generals have been reduced to rubble. they have been reduced to a point where it's embarrassing for our country. you have a force of 30,000 or so people, nobody really knows, but probably 30,000 people and i can just see the great -- as an example general george patton spinning in his grave as isis we can't beat. >> so that was donald trump last night in the forum on nbc. and at which time a lot of people said, uh-oh, he call out the generals, what is donald trump the civilian doing? to put perspective on that from the military perspective, lieutenant general michael flynn. was he right? >> he's absolutely right. there's a severe disconnect between this white house and frankly the president and our military. i mean, there's a lot of frustration within the ranks and there's a lot of frustration i know in the senior leadership
4:34 am
about what we're not able to do. one of the things that we cannot ever -- i mean, there's no enemy that's unbeatable. and what we have right now, is we have over 4 1/2, 5 years of fighting isis now as though they're some unbeatable enemy. there's again an enormous frustration. frankly, this business about reducing them to rubble, you look over the past eight years of generals that have been moved out of the service for whatever reason -- >> for example? >> for disagrees or just the lack of being able to push a particular strategy that we know that, you know, that can lead us to victory. you know, guys -- i mean -- >> give us some names. >> general mccarron and general mcchrystal, flynn -- >> rubble yourself? >> yeah. so this business about -- donald trump has enormous respect for our military, for our military leaders and he also said last night for our intelligence professionals. i know i have been in a couple of these intelligence briefings
4:35 am
that have been in stark contrast to the policy decisions we are seeing coming out of this white house. so this is a very dangerous time. and frankly, one of the comments that hillary clinton made was when she pulled a card off the table saying, you know, i'm not going to put any boots on the ground. i mean, quit telling the enemy -- we have become the best enemies in the world because we constantly -- >> why does that bother you? why does it bother you? why does it bother -- >> telegraph what we'll do. >> why does it bother you she won't put the troops in the ground? >> it doesn't make any difference whether we do or not. in warfare you do not want to telegraph or be predictable as to what you'll do or not do. >> what's the problem -- you said we can beat -- >> absolutely. absolutely. >> is the administration not listening to what the generals are telling him to do? >> yeah, it's a very narrow strategy and frankly, the policy and the strategy that has been directed and approved by the white house is what we're executing right now. it's taking forever.
4:36 am
we are in this sort of perpetual conflict. we can't afford it. about two days ago, a report came out that showed that we have spent $6 trillion in the last 15 years in this war., it' $6 trillion. that's coming out -- two days ago that came out. we have to stop this perpetual war that we are in. let's go owin and -- let a go win and figure out what to the day after is the more important thing and that's where hillary clinton in her going in to -- you know, her support of the current policies in the middle east, really pushing for libya, i mean these places are a disaster. we have a fire raging in the middle east in north africa that's bringing all sorts of problems in the refugee crisis, this immigration problem into europe. europe is having severe problems and we'll have our own problems
4:37 am
here if we bring in another 600,000 that hillary clinton wants to bring in. >> 400,000 in syria -- >> hundreds of thousands are streaming into europe. we have 20,000 begging to get into here. >> yeah. we don't know anything about the backgrounds. i mean, so we have to be very conscious and very cautious about what it is that we do and we begin to bring these folks into this country. >> well, one of the things you mentioned a moment ago, trump said there was something jaw dropping that he didn't realize before, but he said he could by the body language of the briefers what they were presenting was not essentially to the president. the president was making a contrary decision based on his ideology rather than perhaps the scenario that presented itself. >> yeah, so the intelligence briefings we have been given were very professional, and the intelligence briefers they represent a large body of our intelligence analysts around the
4:38 am
world, they were very good. the interesting thing is that, you know, intelligence professionals will present really, you know, what is going on. >> just the facts. >> exactly. just the facts. what they believe is going on around the world. and the issues that we touched on in both the first two intelligence briefings have are very, very serious and they present the next perils the next president will deal with. they brief you but they don't make the policy decision. they don't make the decision as to what we'll do about it. it starts at the white house, starts with the president. i will just it is here and tell you they're in stark contrast to what we're seeing. so the dangers -- >> so donald trump came out and said, i read their body language was he correct? >> he's correct. >> because the critics say you don't don't get that -- >> you absolutely do. the questions that were asked by donald trump they were very good questions. they would say that's a decision for somebody else.
4:39 am
i don't make that. this is the intel folks that were briefing us, those aren't decisions that we make. we present the facts. >> it's all top secret information, you give them that information so when they do take office that they have a -- they're prepared. donald trump -- you were talking about hillary said we won't put troops on the ground. that's her strategy. donald said if i win, i don't want to broadcast to the enemy exactly what my plan is. do you agree with that? >> absolutely. we have to stop being the best enemies in the world. we tell -- we say everything we're going to do. i mean, most recent one was just probably a month and a half ago, maybe two months ago. now secretary as defense said we'll send another 525 guys in. he actually sat in a briefing and said we'll attack from this city, we'll attack from this city. when we go into mosul -- i mean, this is warfare. >> right. >> this is not about a basketball game that you can walk away. >> lives are on the line. >> life and death decision, quit telegraphing what we'll do on the battlefield. >> well, the facts on the ground
4:40 am
are we're picking up land against isis, they're being forced out of isis and in iraq, iraq is getting back ramadi, fallujah and soon mosul. is there a story inside that story? >> absolutely. we don't have enough time to talk about it. yesterday's town hall down in philadelphia that donald trump spoke to, he talk about four -- essentially four points to go after them militarily, via cyber, financially. he's talked about the oil and things like that. they're bringing in $1 million to $2 million a day, isis is. i believe most importantly, attack this ideology, like we attacked communism and naziism. we are not allowed to describe this enemy the way they're -- they actually are. so when somebody says, you know, who is it that you're facing, hey, we're facing a radical islamist enemy, and they have grown, they have expanded tremendously. >> so has iran.
4:41 am
iran -- they're charged to take back the iraqi cities. it's criminal. >> what did you think of -- there was no header on it? >> yeah, unbelievable. i mean, you know, she -- i thought the questions last night were very fair. very fair, and when you're explaining something like that, you're wrong. >> is she wrong? >> absolutely. >> is she lying? >> she is -- is being about as dishonest -- like the one guy that asked the question in the first part of it, like he said, hey, i would be -- i would be in jail. >> the navy vet. >> yeah, the navy vet. it was a great question. some great questions last night. i would be in jail for a tenth of what we're talking about here. so, you know, i mean, either we have laws or we don't have laws. either we follow the policies and the guidelines and the rules we have or we don't. you can't have somebody who wants to be commander in chief or president of the united states that says, hey, i'm sorry. >> right. >> i got it. i accept your apology. but there's a consequence. >> but your excuses don't fly.
4:42 am
>> general, thank you. >> thanks a lot. coming up on a thursday, still ahead, she heard the call after 9/11. joined the army and defended our country overseas. now she's here to tell us her story as a chopper pilot during the war. good morning to you. and you know him as nanny from "modern family." actor rico rodriguez is here to spill some secrets about the eighth season of that hit show. >> excellent. what body aches? what knee pain? what sore elbow? advil liqui-gels make pain a distant memory nothing works faster stronger or longer what pain? advil.

tv-commercial
5:03 am
that matt lauer didn't do his job. he didn't go in there on a onesided basis and protect hillary and attack trump. that tells you that trump did pretty darn well last night. >> in fact, let's hear some of that give and take for those of those people watching fox. >> secretary clinton, how can you expect those such as myself who are entrusted with the nation's sensitive information to have any confidence in your leadership as a president when you clearly corrupted our national security? >> you know and i know classified material is designated. it is marked. there is a header so that there is no dispute at all that what is being communicated to or from someone who has that access is marked classified. and what we have here is the use of an unclassified system by
5:04 am
hundreds of people in our government to send information that was not marked. there were no headers. there was no statement top secret, secret or confidential. >> nbc did a fact check, newt. they said to that question she was dodging the question because the fbi has found -- that we know of at least, 110 e-mails containing classified information and she has a new excuse. there was no header up there. >> she's such a liar it's disgusting. when the fbi says to her, what about the paragraphs that had "c," "c" meaning classified she said, oh, i didn't realize that meant classified. i thought that was just a part of organizing the paragraph. >> yeah. >> where's the "a" and the "b"? >> the fact she had 2,300 different documents that had "c" in the document itself. meaning classified. and she routinely tries to lie her way out of this. and of course it comes back up
5:05 am
again and again, because it is so patently false. >> there was a lot of things that went on in there. i think both candidates have work to do before september 26th and they had a dry run about how to answer the most controversial questions so we got a preview. a quick thing. along the republican critics that donald trump is stuart stevens. he said if president obama praised vladimir putin like trump did an compared him to george bush he would have been asked to drop out of the race. do you agreewith that? george bush said he looked i believe to putin's eyes and saw his soul. i believe what trump said that putin was brilliant. he said that's fine f you want to say i'm brilliant, why would i complain? listen, someone is to call me brilliant, you know i'm going to get in a fight over it.
5:06 am
>> brian wants you to tell him how good he is at cornhole over and over. let's talk about the debates -- >> brian is a brilliant writer about history. >> yes, he is. we have 18 more days until the first debate. we're so excited to see what really happens. how is donald trump preparing? i know you have compared him to babe ruth. what do you mean about that and how is he prepare? >> i think it's important to remember, babe ruth was a great game player, the best all around baseball player in history, he was both a pitcher and a home run king, but he was not a great practice athlete. he got a lot of extra adrenaline when it was a real game and something was at stake. trump is like that. he doesn't practice a whole lot. it's not his thing. but he listens carefully. you could tell that last night. you can tell it in his national security speech yesterday which was i think was very impressive and very thoughtful. and my guess is that what you'll get is donald trump's going to come in ready, but he's going to come in as donald trump.
5:07 am
relaxed. cheerfully looking forward to it. hillary will prepare, memorize, study. have 27 different strategies lined up. she'll practice with 19 different people. none of that will matter. who are you going to recruit to pretend you're donald trump. it's impossible. there's no other donald trump other than donald trump. it won't work. >> mark cuban is waiting for the call. >> he can try to do it. as interesting as cuban is, he doesn't have the speed and the assertiveness that trump has. we can send 16 republican candidates to chat with hillary and explain to her what it's like to try to take trump on head to head in a debate. >> good point. >> absolutely. >> of course, he's the standard-bearer for the republican party. the last one is mitt romney and mitt romney is part of the never trump organization, movement let's say. he sent this tweet out, newt, yesterday. i want to get your impression. he said, i hope voters get to
5:08 am
see former gop governors gary johnson and bill weld on the debate stage this fall. of course they're not running on the republican ticket. they're libertarians. so what is he saying? don't vote for trump, obviously. >> look i feel sad for mitt romney. i mean, this is a guy who for a long time in massachusetts claimed not to really be a republican when he ran against teddy kennedy he said he wasn't for bush and reagan in the 1980s, he wasn't for the contract of america. then for a brief, shining moment he was very republican. then it didn't work. now he's back to not really being a republican. i mean, he must have a sad, confusing life in that sense. i think we're down to the simple choice. do you want hillary clinton to be president, pick a radical supreme court, bring all the corruption into the white house or not? if you don't want her to do that, you only have one alternative that makes sense, that's donald trump. everything else is silly and in this case mitt romney is just being silly. >> do you blame the never trump movement on the right if donald trump loses? >> no, look, i think donald
5:09 am
trump has an obligation to campaign well enough to win. i think based on how the polls are move, donald trump's going to win. at that point, hillary clinton can blame whoever she wants to. i think the great shock to the old republican establishment is that there's a new national populist movement that's real. that that movement carried 37 primaries for trump. that that movement wants to change washington, not accommodate it. what you're getting are the old washingtonians. the folks who are comfortable with the old order who do feel psychologically closer to hillary than donald trump because he's a major disruptive force. he wants to actually change this city and all of the folks who are in the never trump movement are kind of in -- gee, i have done all right here. i feel good about it. when i go to the club i meet my friends even if they're democrats. that's really proof that trump is real. that you have a never trump
5:10 am
movement because they understand how real he is. >> last night, they were on the same stage. they weren't face to face. can't wait for the debates. newt, thank you for join us live. >> good to be with you. all right, 8:10 here in new york city. >> let's hand it over to heather with some headlines. >> i hope you're off to great day. president obama is taking a jab at trump. president obama says that trump isn't fit for the white house. >> i don't think the guy's qualified to be president of the united states. and every time he speaks, that opinion is confirmed. and i think -- >> in recent months trump has visited detroit and louisiana after the deadly flooding. panic on a packed plane when a woman sets blankets on fire. this unfolded on a jetblue flight that was out of new york. the fbi says that the woman not

5:12 am
for cops to come along and arrest him. when officers questioned him, he said he got in a fight with his wife and he no longer wanted to be in the situation. he'd rather be in jail than go home to his honey. can you relate to that, steve and brian? >> three hots and a cot. >> kathy and dawn are lovely people. >> just teasing. >> i know you are. >> he must have a rough life. >> we had one guy quit this job to become a prison guard. >> maybe he makes her life miserable. he did rob a bank. >> but he's not good at it. >> he's a gem. >> he knew what he was doing. he robbed the bank and sat down. >> but guess what? he hasn't figured out the escape plan. 'd fail the breathalyzer. >> what do you think of that? >> have you ever done that? robbed a bank and then gotten arrested and just stood there? anyone in a bad relationship?

5:18 am
personal e-mail to communicate with friends without it going through state department servers. yet, remember, powell never set up his only personal server for official business. yet, clinton seemed to try to use powell to exonerate herself. she said that powell counselled her to use a personal e-mail service. well, he balked last month, telling "people" magazine that the clinton camp was trying to make him the skate goat. the truth is she was using it for a year before i said what did, now we see that memo. elijah cummings appears to be trying to pin it on powell by releasing these e-mails and he said in a statement last night, quote, this e-mail exchange showed that secretary powell advised secretary clinton on how to bypass requirements to preserve federal records although secretary clinton has made clear she did not rely on this advice. powell warned clinton in the e-mail if she used a blackberry for government or personal use,

it could be subject to recordkeeping laws. powell said be very careful. i got around it all by not saying much and not using systems that captured the data. but the most important point here to stress is that powell's talking about using his aol e-mail account for unclassified messages. when it came to classified messages, he said he used a desk on a secure state department computer. that is a lot different than the system that hillary clinton was using, guys. >> well, ed, maybe she didn't read that part of the note. she was very selective in the part she decided to implement. >> picking and choosing which advice -- >> exactly. >> thank you, ed. very interesting. look forward to see if general powell has a response or a clarification. coming up, the candidates going jab for jab over who has more skeletons in their closet. >> he clearly has something to hide. >> people who have nothing to hide don't smash phones with
5:20 am
hammers. they don't. >> they don't. so who won that round? we're stepping into the ring with former boxer and political guru, rocky rollins. he's our first president, but george washington does not inspire enough pride to name a school after him. the brand-new controversy brewing that should not be a controversy, but sadly it is. if you've gone to extremes to escape your nasal allergies...

5:25 am
with former prize fighter and political writer, ed rollins, great chair of the great america pac which donald trump is benefiting from. good morning. >> how are you? >> i'm okay. what did you make of the commander in chief forum last night over on nbc? >> obviously she knows the substance and policy, but she stumbles. i didn't think she did particularly well and donald trump who is not viewed as knowing the substance and policy did very well. >> what did you think of matt lauer grilling her for seven minutes a row on the e-mail? >> it was certainly out of the mainstream media stereotype and i thought he did an effective job. these analysts are going to have a big role in the debates as we move forward here. >> so right now we'll look at some of the sound bites. from last night, and the past week. the first one is because we're in the ring -- ladies and gentlemen, hillary versus trump on libya. >> she made a mistake on libya.
5:26 am
she made a terrible mistake on libya and the next thing -- i mean, not on did she make the mistake, but then they complicated the mistake by having no management once they bombed you know what out of gadhafi. >> with respect to libya, again, there's no difference between my opponent and myself. he's on record extensively supporting interevention in libya when gadhafi was threatening to massacre his population. i put together a coalition that included nato, included the arab league and we were able to save lives. we did not lose a single american in that action. >> okay. rocky rollins, who won that round? >> trump killed her in that. libya is her biggest mistake and the fact he may have supported the position from the outsider, she made the decision. she talks about never losing american lives. there was chaos and thousands of
5:27 am
lives have been lost since. >> i can think of four lives in benghazi. >> right. one of the biggest disasters she had as a foreign policy -- >> next up, hillary versus trump on foreign policy. >> people say as an example, russia, you know, hillary likes to play tough with russia. putin looks at her and he laughs. putin looks at hillary clinton and he smiles. boy, would he like to see her. that would be easy. because just look at her decisions. look how bad her decisions have been virtually every decision she has made has been a loser. >> when it comes to fighting isis he has been all over the map. he's talked about letting syria become a free zone for isis. look at the map, donald. he's talked about sending in american ground troops, not on my watch. that is not what we are going to. >> okay. who won that round? >> well, i'm going to give that one a tie.
5:28 am
they kind of pushed and shoved a bit. i think to a certain extent it's sort of a charitable tie. this is not her skill set, fighting this guy on one liners so basically i'll give her a tie on this round. >> okay. now let's talk dirty laundry. hillary versus trump on scandal. >> the list goes on and on. the scams, the frauds, the questionable relationships. the business activities that have stiffed workers. he clearly has something to hide. and if he's going to pursue this campaign, he owes it to the american people to come clean and release the tax returns. >> people who have nothing to hide don't smash phones with hammers. they don't. people who have nothing to hide don't bleach -- nobody's ever heard of it, don't bleach their e-mails or destroy evidence to keep it from being publicly archived as required under federal law. >> rocky, who wins that round?
5:29 am
>> smash and bleach obviously wins this round. she clearly has covered up on a lot of things, in the e-mails in particular. i think he nails her pretty hard on this one. her challenges -- her challenges to him are kind of vague. i definitely give him this one, which gives two rounds. >> split decision. going into the debate, first debate a couple of weeks away, what's your advice to him? >> basically, have several good one liners, be respectful of her. and basically not be intimidated. he's never been intimidated before so he'll dominate that night i'm sure. >> see you next week. meanwhile, we know one presidential candidate isn't above the law. green party nominee jill stein has a warrant out for her arrest. find out what she did. we broke the news earlier this morning, the mets signing tim tebow. that's right. the football guy. skip bayless and shannon sharpe from the fox sports 1 network are here next with the scoop.

to receive your 6th night free, plus $600 in spending credits. all right. welcome back. >> yeah. i have some news for you. we'll do something that's never been done before. we'll try to have six people debate the hottest topics from separate coasts. >> the breaking news, tim tebow, you love him in football and now he's signed a contract with the new york mets. >> that is awesome. >> joining us now to talk about that from los angeles, the fox sports 1's new a-team, skip bayless, shannon shortstop and joy taylor playing the center position between these two intellectual stars. >> before we debate that though, i have to congratulate you. your show premiered on tuesday. i'm reading you have a 400% improvement over the same time period last year. awesome, guys. >> thank you. >> you're welcome. >> all right. let's start with the elephant in
5:34 am
the room. tim tebow is going to be a baseball player. what do you think? shannon? >> i'm shocked. i think he short cutted the system. i think he got this student because he was tim tebow, it wasn't something he earned. you can't fault a guy -- if someone is willing to give you an opportunity, all you have to do is step up to the plate, take advantage of that opportunity. but i don't think it's fair he waits until he's 29 years of age, uses the celebrity status and 28 of 30 teams look at him throw a baseball, hit a baseball and now -- >> shannon, shannon, come on. not fair. how is that not fair? if he has the talent which he clearly does, how is that not fair? >> well, normally guys that cross over like deion sanders they mastered the sport they're supposed to be good at. think about this, he wasn't
5:35 am
willing to go to the canadian football league to hone his skill to throw the football. he wouldn't change positions but he changes sports and they say hitting the baseball is the hardest thing to do in professional sports and he's doing this at the age of 29. i wish him well, but it's not fair -- >> did tim tebow not take your denver broncos on one of the greatest nfl titles we ever saw and did he not prove he's one of the greatest clutch players we have ever seen, did he not earn the right to try out for a baseball team after -- >> no. >> -- after he was an all-state baseball player in the state of florida? yes, he did. i think it's a great move by the new york mets to at least take a shot. it's a long shot. >> now we know why joy is there. >> he earned the right again to try out for a football team. that's what he is. a football -- well, he was a football player. so we'll see what happens with this. >> joy, do you want to interject anything? >> i love tim tebow so i'm okak
5:36 am
with whatever he wants to do. i don't agree with shannon. if he has the talent, they should take a chance on him. if he doesn't make it that's fine. why not sign an athlete? >> great role model. >> this guy not going to make it. shannon, you're 100% right since you've let yourself go since you've retired obviously. i'm being sarcastic. he looks like a body builder. of course he should go to the cfl. he's got a chance in the nfl. it was because of peyton manning he was forced out of denver. the jets screwed him. he needed a shot to start. and this guy does this thing called winning but he should not give up on football that's what bothers me. >> why every time we preface the tim tebow we have to say we love tim tebow or he's a great guy? the fact of the matter is, it's simple as this. he was not good enough. the average nfl career is about three years. guess what tim tebow his stand
5:37 am
in the national football league was three years. he had his nfl dream. he played quarterback. he won a playoff game. okay. it happened. >> now he's out? >> it happens. it happens. >> joy and skip and i are pulling for him. he's a great guy and a great role model. >> see? >> i want to talk about colin kaepernick. the commissioner roger goodell he said -- that the 49ers quarterback said he'll donate all of the money from the increased jersey sales to charity. what are your thoughts? >> my thoughts are i'm very glad that colin did what he did to start with. even though i love the flag and i believe in this country and it initially offended me and i cringed. but as i stepped back, i love the conversation that it started. and i admire him for sticking with this stand and maturing into the stand and backing it up. but i also believe in roger goodell findly stepping in and say -- finally stepping in and saying this is our league, we have to please our sponsors in this league so we have to continue to honor our flag. >> is that what he said, shannon? >> no.
5:38 am
>> i didn't think so. >> he's basically saying colin kaepernick, i wish you'd stand up and put your hand over your heart and fall in line like everybody else. i agree with skip, i commend colin for what he's done. he put his money where his mouth is. all the money in -- from his jersey sales are donated back to the community. but see the commissioner goodell is in a situation where he's never had to fight. it's funny -- i'm starting to learn this. as long as you don't have to fight for something it's okay. commissioner goodell has never had to fight for anything, you know what i? he's been a white male in america his entire life. he hasn't been black, he hasn't been a woman, he hasn't been in the lgbt community. it's easy for him to say, oh, i love patriotism. >> come on. you cannot pin that on him. you don't know what he fought for. you don't know anything about
5:39 am
him. he's just -- >> oh, what is he fighting for? why is he trying -- >> now all of a sudden you have to fight for something you can disrespect the flag? >> hold up. what did that flag represent? it's supposed to be freedom and liberty. >> and if you're not getting that -- >> who is taking colin kaepernick's liberty? >> there you go. because colin kaepernick -- you never say the lgbt community is oppressed because ellen degeneres. you don't take one. so you take it one situation. colin kaepernick is not 34 million african-americans in america. but that's what you try to do. you love to say that flag, that flag represents. but when those black soldiers went to germany to -- second class citizens. >> -- by stand up with your hand over your heart every time they played the national anthem, did you make a mistake? >> no. it was not a mistake. colin kaepernick -- hold up. we love freedom -- we love the first amendment until we disagree with that. we love freedom of expression
5:40 am
until we disagree. >> special on 9/11 -- >> it's not 9/11! >> well, he's playing monday, but most people are playing sunday. >> we'll cross that bridge once we get there. we're talk about colin kaepernick about the context of right now. >> -- in the water because of it. >> hey, i agree with colin kaepernick. his first amendment. as you so eloquently state. people fought thor that right. but now you disagree with his right to do what he did. hey, that's your right. >> okay. the show starts at 9:30 eastern time on fox sports 1, it's a good one. "undisputed" with joy taylor as the moderator which rhymes. thank you so much for joining us today. >> thanks for having us on. >> good luck, joy. >> 20 minutes now before the top of the hour. last night, hillary clinton made it clear that she's disgusted by the v.a. scandal. where was the outrage a year ago? >> overall, veterans who do get
5:41 am
treated are satisfied with their treatment. more so than people in the -- it's exactly right. >> democratic senator joe manchin of west virginia serves on the armed services and veterans aftfairs committee. his reaction next. who's ready for some football? we're going to play out on the plaza. ♪ (humming) ♪ so you're up at dawn, ♪ k, , look alive. ♪ you've been saving for a big man-cave. ♪ (chuckling) good luck with that, dave. ♪ you made the most of your retirement plan, ♪ ♪ so you better learn to drive that rv, man.♪ ♪ so many things you're doing in your life. ♪ ♪

some quick headlines for you. we know at least one presidential candidate isn't above the law. jill stein has a warrant out for her arrest. she's facing vandalism charges after spray painting i approve this message on a blade of a bu bulldozer during a protest.
5:45 am
a separate story. he's the father of our country, right, george washington is his name. you know him. apparently isn't inspiring enough to keep his name on a high school. the president of a san francisco school board said it's time to reconsider a name change for schools named after slave owners like george washington. meanwhile, as the candidates faced off in a military forum last night, hillary clinton shared her outrage over the v.a. scandal. >> i was outraged by the stories that came out about the v.a. and i have been very clear about the necessity for doing what ever is required to move the v.a. into the 21st century, to provide the kind of treatment options that our veterans today desperately need and deserve. >> but that's not at all what she was saying just last year. listen.
5:46 am
>> overall, veterans who do get treated are satisfied with their treatment. now -- >> more so than people in the regular -- >> that's exactly right. now, nobody would believe that in the coverage you see and the constant berating of the v.a. that comes from the republicans in part in pursuit of this ideological agenda. >> so why is she changing her tune? is she right then or now? here to discuss is a member of the veterans affairs committee and democratic senator from west virginia, great to see you, joe manchin, welcome. how are you? >> fine. how are you y'all? >> which hillary clinton do we believe, the one last night or the one last year? >> let me just say that everybody was outraged when we found out what was happening to our veterans and why they were getting wait listed and why it was taking so long in so many of our facilities. we brought in bob mcdonald and i believe he and his staff have tried to change the atmosphere, the delivery service the our veterans. if you talk to our veterans and
5:47 am
even after this scandal, all the things that happened, they still would rather go to the v.a. hospital or v.a. chin inlinic te private. i have been all over west virginia, i talk to them and asked them. some are upset but the majority want to stay with the v.a. system and we're trying to improve it. i understand what's going on. >> well, what'd you make of donald trump's suggestion last night that, you know, the system is not perfect. doesn't work. hasn't worked in the past. and if you're unable to get service after a number of days or weeks or months have a card, go to your local doctor or local hospital and you get better. >> brian, steve and ainsley, we have that. it's called first choice. we're doing everything we can to give flexibility. we don't have one v.a. facility, they get waited on very quickly because they use other entities and other government run health clinics. we're doing everything we can. the veterans should get priority treatment anywhere they go. i believe that in my heart and i
5:48 am
believe that the democrats and the republicans believe that but most of them would like to go to the v.a. they want us to improve it and we're doing it. but if there's an illness we can't cure, they should go to the private sector and go to the closest facility you can go to get healed. >> now, senator, i was out in arizona and i interviewed those who have sued the v.a. that are complaining because their loved ones died on the waiting list. they would prefer to get treatment at the other hospitals but they couldn't because it was expensive -- >> money out of their pocket. >> i respectfully disagree about that. >> no, no, arizona it was really -- it was the head waters of all the problems there. it was the problem. i hope hope that's been corrected or being corrected. that's why we came one first choice because of the situation in arizona so they could go somewhere else. >> and something you want is
5:49 am
respect for the miner, coal miners. 3,600 job losses in the last year in west virginia because of coal. there's a war on coal and it's coming from the white house. >> there sure is, brian. i have said that. i disagree, i disagree wholeheartedly with the president's energy policy. you have to take the all-in energy policy. that means use everything you have. this has been accelerated because of the white house's overreach and the environmental overreaches. we have to find a balance. the rest of the world is using fossil. if you want to help clean up the global climate, i want to do that. then you better find the technology to do it. don't deny it and they're going to follow us because we have harmed our economy. they have just about crippled west virginia. six of our counties are in the deep depression right now. we're fighting to overcome this. our miners are coming. we're fighting for the miner's protection act which goes back to 1946 with harry truman saying that this is such an important product for our country, these people have delivered the energy that's built our country, fought both wars and won them.
5:50 am
we owe them to get their benefits of health care and pension. let's fulfill that. that's all we're asking. i only need -- i only need seven of -- seven more republican colleagues of mine in the senate to help us get this over the hump. i think they'll come through. i think we'll work together in a bipartisan manner. this is a promise that was made in '46 and '72 and in 2006. nothing else has been promised to the miners who have gotten crapped on more than any other part of our society. >> well, your big problem is your own party but trying to buck that trend. let's see what happens. senator joe manchin, thank you for joining us today from the russell rotunda. >> thank you. >> only need seven republicans. how many mines are closed? >> 700 mines are closed. >> who's ready for some football? we're cooking up and gearing up, getting ready for the game tonight and tailgating out on the plaza.
