hello. it's 5:00 in new york city. this is the five. hillary clinton camp accused donald trump of pushing deranged conspiracy theories of his opponent's health. they may be forced to change that. clinton is recovering after appearing to collapse while departing new york's 9/11 memorial ceremony. her team initially said the democratic nominee overheated. they finally came clean that a doctor had given her an ammonia diagnosis two days before. clinton ally david axlerod said
it was not good to keep that. her camp is expressing regret today. >> we could have provided more information more quickly. as soon as they got into the vehicle, she was alert the whole time and was telling staff that she was fine. i do think that in those 90 minutes that elapsed, we could have gotten more information out more quickly. that's on us. we regret that. >> did she ever actually lose consciousness? >> no, i don't think so. >> debatable. we will decide. we have a table of doctors here. just kidding. what did you think from a communications perspective? you have axlerod going on the offensive saying people who are not necessarily supporting hillary are thinking the same thing, why are you making more trouble for yourself? >> the interesting thing about him saying that is that when he
was working with barak obama and they were challenging hillary clinton in the pry haimary in 2 they knew their opponent very well. he knows her team has this desire -- i think it comes from the top -- to try to keep everything very quiet. i had walking pneumonia two years ago on the show. if you remember, i coughed for six weeks. greg said, i don't think that's just a cough. sure enough. >> it seemed like ebola at the time. >> it was horrible. i felt okay. >> i saved your life. >> when he says it antibiotics can take care of pneumonia, not if it's viral. >> you can split this in different ways. go on webmd and try to figure it out. it wouldn't have been that big a deal for her team to come out friday night and say, she has been diagnosed with walking pneumonia or whatever it is. that would have explained things. they made it worse. they're good at that.
>> it could -- if they had done it friday, they could have used that to explain the basket of deplorable. that's because she had pneumonia. they could have married it together. she's good at hiding an illness. she knows how to keep a secret if the secret is hers. i look at this -- i brought this here. i have -- i know i'm not the first person to notice this. but it's like this way to the hospital. i know other people have seen this. it's like a weird symbol that i think maybe they should change it. maybe it should -- no, no, no. hillary on the rise. that's much better. it's strange. the other thing -- >> strange like this show. >> the other point i want to make, what made this story? e-mail story moves slowly. but this happened because of a video. this is the way news works now. when there was a video, literally a viral video. >> who pushed the video?
>> they can't fix that either. >> exactly. >> that was good. a nice opening from marcus welby, m.d. >> you claim to have saved dana's life. let's hear from dr. mcdreamy. >> let's not diagnose clinton. let's diagnose her campaign. we will look at 2005, she faints before a speech. '09 she falls and brains her elbow. 2011, falls, 2012, falls. in 2013, she needs special lens on her glasses to testify because of dizziness. february of this year, falls walking up the stairs. recently the coughing fits. >> can i add one thing? >> yeah. >> when she did her interview with the fbi, she actually said that she couldn't remember several types. you can add one more. >> i'm getting to that. we're not there yet. the coughing fit.
she jokes about it being alle allergic reaction to donald trump. the campaign jokes and said -- doesn't joke anymore. the campaign covers. they say, she has had seasonal allergies even maybe even recommended she was taking antihistamine. then sunday -- dana is right, 40 type times she can't remember. sunday she blacks out. if you look at the video -- i have seen it 100 times. that right foot is dragged into the van. there's no way -- >> why would she -- >> there's no way she's conscious being brought into that van. her legs are staggering. >> here is the problem. >> 90 minutes it took the campaign to say it was overheating and then nine hours later. nine hours later they realize the video is out there. they got caught. they said, you know what? five days ago, four days ago we knew her being diagnosed with pneumonia. come on. they always revert to the lies. that's the natural reaction of the clintons and clinton campaign. i will tell you, she can't laugh
it off anymore. i hope the secretary is okay. but her campaign is in free fall. she's not fit to run the country. >> what's going to happen to the polls? >> right. >> it didn't cover that. >> there you go. we heard from dr. meredith gray. you have to be mcsteam y yicste. what do you have to say? >> i may have got my cold from hillary. i was -- what is the truth? i wanted -- i thought you were building toe ining towards the . >> let's find out. >> you don't know the truth. but -- >> here is the truth. her campaign is in free fall. >> get out of town. let me say this. i think that what the real issue is the lack of transparency by the campaign. on friday, she did a lot of stuff. you saw it right here on the five. we had her meeting with the national security advisors. then she has a press conference. then she went on and did an
interview with cnn. she was doing a lot of stuff even as she had -- we know people working through a cold. i can tell you i was doing that friday. >> you said it was allergy. >> i don't know what it was. i went home and i was taking claritin. i was asking dr. greg for advise. the reality is that she and her staff i think reacting to people like rudy giuliani saying, she has a concussion. or she's got low stamina. she can't do it. they were overly protective to the point of being stupid. then not telling anybody that the woman is sick. everybody gets sick. we're human. now it comes into, it's a serious issue because the people who are the birthers and the -- all those people with all their craziness, look at that video, hillary clinton, i don't know if she was out. she looked disabled. >> this is what i don't understand. you are running for president. you must have the best physician outside of barak obama.
you must have the best person there who can tell you exactly what to do. it blows my mind how sloppy they treated this. >> you don't know. the doctor maybe said why don't you take a few days off. she said, i can't. it's the 9/11 memorial. >> she didn't want her -- the skeptics to be proven correct. by doing so, she proved them correct. by going and fulfilling -- she showed them that she's not well. it's interesting to watch the media. bend over backwards for this. msnbc, it was all about the humidity. how hot it was. how could she wear that jacket in that heat? then all of a sudden it was like how brave she had pneumonia and shefrs o she was out there. >> the most breeze we had here in new york in a long time. it was quite refreshing. >> here is the problem with this. the campaign can none of them just say, no, second, we need to co come clean? they knew friday at the latest.
she was diagnosed earlier in the week. they knew friday that she had pneumonia from a few days prior. i would love to see if we can get an x-ray. we can see pneumonia. they know friday. >> i think we have dr. mcstuffens here. >> they try to hide. they hold reporters back. she has an episode. at that point they should have said, we need to come clean. she has pneumonia. they wait -- they say it was overheated. then they say nine hours later, guess what, it was -- we knew about it on friday. they are always willing to lie. >> what if it's not pneumonia? >> that would be a lie. >> you don't -- who do you trust? >> let me just say something. >> cable news. >> i think that dana was picking up on a moment ago. there are a lot of politicians -- i don't understand how they do it. the guys and women go on and on. they work crazy hours. i get tired covering them. if you are on a -- if you are in
the press pool, you are in trouble. there was no press pool with her. >> i know. you probably got sick from making -- that's exhausting. >> i'm saying, seriously, i don't understand how they do it sometimes. they have think that it's a badge of courage if you are -- you got a cold, work through it. your stomach is upset, work through it. eat the chicken dinner. >> perhaps they should be worried about her health. are democrats worried? i don't know. maybe. it appears according to two journalists here is cokie roberts. >> the fact that it comes when polls are tightening and democrats are saying that hillary was the only candidate who could not beat trump and it's taking her off of the campaign trail, cancelling her trip to california today, it has them very nervously beginning to whisper about trying to having her step aside and finding another candidate. i think it's unlikely to be a real thing.
i'm sure it's an overreaction of an already skittish party. >> interesting. a lot in there. david tweeted this from democratic operatives. expect emergency dnc meeting to consider a replacement. >> i was -- >> you are -- >> i would not be surprised. it could just be pneumonia. there's a lot of things going on that we don't know about. i think you have to consider joe biden. >> just pneumonia? 57,000 people in america -- >> if you are 69 with it. >> 57,000 people die from pneumonia. that's why it matters. it's not just just pneumonia. it could kill her. >> a lot of people get over pneumon pneumonia. >> a lot of people who are sick and whose immune systems get pneumonia and they die. ordinary people get sick. >> i'm just suggesting that not many ordinary people have this much instances of falling year after year after year.
>> why don't you -- >> she has a hyperthyroid problem. >> she has -- it's hypo -- >> the way -- it's like you think we should have worn black in here because we're going to her funeral. >> here is what i think ends up happening. >> i'm in black. >> if they decide to do this, they can. there's been instances where they have done this in the past where a candidate is removed for health reasons or other. it's replaced. >> if you are trump, you want to run against joe biden? >> this is going to happen in the next day or two. some ballots are -- >> fif you are trump, you want o run against biden or hillary? >> i thought you were suggesting bill clinton -- >> go ahead. >> i'm done. >> this is a live shot here. sponsored by the red cross. this is a live shot of her home.
obviously, been a tremendous amount of interest in terms of how is she doing, is she going to be able to get inle can lcal can is selled. >> she's been out of the spotlight so long. when she's in the spotlight, this is what happens. we'll be right back. >> thank you. a message from our sponsor, my pillow. maybe she's on one. what has clin on this beton bee today? that's next. stay with us. hey america,

back now to the questions swirls about hillary clinton's health. her campaign said she overheated while attending a 9/11 memorial. later admitted she had been diagnosed days before with pneumonia. jennifer griffin is outside her home. i'm sure you have been beseeieg with questions from people asking you what's the latest. now it's our turn. what's the latest? >> reporter: well, the latest is that we're told by her aides she's at home resting and that she's feeling better today. remember, she started the course of antibiotics friday. so those antibiotics should be working at this point. her doctor issued a statement last night that i really did a double take when i read. her doctor wrote that she had diagnosed her friday with pneumonia. when i first read that i thought that she had perhaps diagnosed her when she saw her after the incident yesterday. but in fact, it was on friday. of course, nobody from the
campaign shared that with any of the traveling press. in fact, what was also worrisome -- you have talked about it -- is that the protective pool who was with her at 9/11, they were held for about $90 minut9 0 minutes. they didn't know where they were. they didn't know other than when our producer who had heard from rick leventhal that she left and stumbled to the car and had had some sort of medical incident, that protective pool was kept in the dark. today the campaign has said that they could have handled things better and they have apologized. >> kimberly is next. >> everyone wants to know what is the true story here in terms of any chronic illnesses she has, any kind of precursors to this. there's been records of deep ve thrombos thrombosis, clotting disorders. then, of course, a concussion years priors.
when are we going to get the real firm answer on this in the pressure is for them to release in more records. >> reporter: well, her spokesman was on the air today. he said that there is no undiscuss closed undisclosed condition other than pneumonia. she had a long-term coughing fit. we saw that. it was the result of allergies. it developed into fpneumonia. i heard from sources just a little while ago that there are top aides who have had some sort of bug, so serious that they have ended up several of them in the hospital in recent weeks. there's something going around campaign headquarters. a spokesman tells me that's not what happened to hillary clinton. they're not linking that bug. some of the campaign aides have been on the plane with us. i think the reason we know about the deep vein thrombosis and the
concussion is because she released some of her medical records. she's under pressure to release more. we understand from her spokesman that she will do so sometime in the coming weeks. >> we want to get everyone in here. keep it pretty pithy. >> jennifer, obviously, mrs. clinton was advised not to travel out to california. is she doing the fund-raisers by skype? is she cancelling them all together? >> reporter: no. they are not cancelling them. we learned bill clinton will fly out to los angeles. he will be at those two fund-raisers hosted by lionel richie and barry diller. she will call in by teleconference we're told tonight to the san francisco fund-raiser. she will not be flying. she will not be flying out to las vegas wednesday when she was supposed to give a speech, either. >> eric? >> jennifer, when stuff doesn't add up, usually it doesn't add up for a reason. here is the question i have. the campaign and hillary clinton know -- they know she has
pneumonia. on friday. they see her literally being carried into the van. they decide to go to chelsea's apartment rather than a hospital. rather than seeking immediate medical attention. there's trauma centers downtown. i know two major trauma centers down there they could have taken her to. why did they go to the apartment? number two, we didn't see bill clinton the whole weekend. why is that? >> reporter: bill clinton was here here today. in terms of why they went to chelsea's parnapartment, i don' know. i asked whether she went to the hospital on friday to get a chest x-ray. i have not gotten any response. it's clear that they were concerned about optics. after 90 minutes she walked out of the -- clhelsea's apartment. she looked good for someone who had the incident we have seen 90 minutes. she walked on her own. she didn't seem to be having trouble walking. i don't know why they didn't
take her -- they did what -- they did try do contact her doctor right away. they did get her on the phone. she also travels with a secret service agents who has medical training in addition to being on her service detail. >> does donald trump have be careful asking for transparency? it's a pre-emptive physical. it's to manage the information. does he have worry that her staff or campaign or the media could ask the same questions of him? >> reporter: salute absolutely. the public is demanding more transparency. the clinton campaign is fond of saying donald trump needs to release his medical records and his taxes. he wants her to release her e-mails as well as more of her medical information. there's mepressure to be

the es and es hybrid. this is the pursuit of perfection. awful music. >> friday night the opening act for barbara streisand preached the salivating choir playing one of her recent hits, "basket of deplorables." >> to be general is tiistics, y could put half of trump supporters into the basket of deplorables. right? the racists, sexists,
homophobic, xenophobic, isl islamaphobic, you name it. >> the worst thing you could order from hickory farms. it insults millions of people. it's nothing new from hillary. there are deplorables in every party. hillary exaggerated trump to smear his supporters. an odd strategy for accusing another person of divisiveness. the media and democrats care more about some deplorables than others. these are things the left have offered for years. anti-semitism has been excused as long as it hurts israel. the left is the only place where cop killers and tyrants end up on t-shirts and a terrorist can throw a fund-raiser. claims of polarization abound.
something never raised when it was just the left that was pushing hate and rage inspired. deplorable is what hillary calls the world now when the right starts acting left. lastly, 2,997 flags each representing a death on 9/11 were ripped out of the ground at a california college over the weeke weekend. whose deplorables did that? let's roll donald trump's response to this. >> i was thus deeply shocked and alarmed this friday to hear my opponent attack, slander, smear, demean these wonderful, amazing people who are supporting our campaign. she called half of our supporters a basket of deplorables. in both the speech and an interview.
she divides people into baskets as though they were objects, not human beings. >> great line. that last line that he had in his speech. the thing is when hillary clinton starts to offer comments, she says, well, to just be grossly generalistic. that's a cue if you hear yourself say that, don't say whatever you are about to say. if you listen to the reaction of the crowd, she got laughs. so she's very comfortable in front of the crowd that barbara streisand was hosting, because that crowd is going to laugh at something like that. that's certainly not the hillary clinton that you saw giving a speech about the alt-right which was considered one of her best features of the campaign. for both of the candidates, who is the real person? not a good weekend for hillary clinton all around.
>> that's like saying -- this may sound racist but -- stop right there. i have a theory that this will have no affect. she's not offending anybody who will vote for her. the people that she insulted -- >> independents. >> are there some on the fence? >> there are. >> important votes out there the to get. independents is the key group that i think trump wants to get sway with. it's going to be key in battleground states as well. there's people quite frankly -- you have seen some out there where, for example, in states even like pennsylvania, they like bill clinton. they do not like hillary clinton. and have elected to go for donald trump. you can see this actually matter, especially when you see the polls tightening the way they are. now you see the battleground states mirroring the closeness of the nationwide polls. not a predictor of everything. there are trends you should pay attention to. also, keep in mind -- some of these are within 3% to 4% margin
of error. there's wiggle room there. when you are that close in a lot of these battleground states, you have to pull votes from her. perhaps you can. when you couple her comments with the problem and the doubt, the lingering doubt from everybody about her health, it may be enough to say, you know what, nobody is perfect and he has said some stuff, but he doesn't seem to be falling down on the trail. the guy does keep going. so maybe why not give him a chance? like his outreach with the minority communities and african-american communes. look what they have gotten you. >> is this comparable to -- >> i was writing that down. because we heard all weekend. it really is like that. she insulted -- let's do the math. she insulted -- he will get 60 million-plus voted. she insulted 30 million people. she insulted 25% of the
population. mit rom knt romney did the same. they saw him as tone deaf and not someone they would want to vote for. that's you where get the independents. her apology was, i wish i didn't say half. what did she mean by that? did she mean all of them? >> i can tell you, because i looked at the numbers. to me, it was important that she sharpened the focus on who trump is a couple weeks out from the debate. he is not a normal conservative. he's not a normal republican. this is a guy who according to a washington post poll is out today, 60% of the supporters are biased against minorities and women. 48% say, absolutely. 60% have an unfavorable view of muss lip lims and want to ban t contrary to our constitution. they think a third of trump's
backers think blacks are more criminal. half of them say blacks are more likely to be violent. of course, 60% are -- they don't think president obama is an american citizen. when you talk about de -- maybe she shouldn't have said this. did she insult somebody? in fact, she told the truth. maybe that's the problem. she called out the trump people who are bigots and said it. just like dana said, it's not going to hurt her. i don't think it will -- these up ins indicate it won't hurt her with independents. most americans agree with her. >> it might energy ides her base. >> that's the other strategy. they are so bored by her, this is all she has left is to let -- light a fire on their behinds. >> guess what else with we didn't talk about? >> the e-mail scandal. >> that's a heck of a way to chain the topic. >> we didn't talk about -- trump didn't invest in the stock mart. he invests millions. he said that today. we don't talk about it. >> you just were allowed. porte

(girls sing) safelite repair, safelite replace.
yesterday while america commemorated the 15th anniversary of 9/11, our homeland security chief gave this optimistic assessment of where we stand now in our terror fight. >> we are stronger against another 9/11-style terrorist directed attack from overseas. our government has become good at detecting and preventing something hatched from overseas, launched from overseas. where we are challenged, however, is with the lone wolf-style attack.
the self-radicalized actor here in the homeland. that's a relatively new environment. it requires a whole of government response. >> dick cheney doesn't agree. he warned a deadlier 9/11-style attack could happen here. he thinks the world is in greater danger 15 years after 9/11 and blames obama in a new op-ed. no american president has done more to weaken the u.s. the president who came into office promising to end wars has made war more likely. he has ensured future wars will be longer and put more american lives at risk. >> concur. >> it's simultaneously safer and less safe. that's -- as technology expands, that's what happens. comparing lifespans in the 1940s to the 1040s. you died younger in 1040. but in the 1940s, you had mass destruction via technology. fewer people died. but you have the technology to kill more people.
while 9/11 mite be fght be fewe has a greater chance of occurring. >> dana, out of occcuriosity, but -- >> well, i haven't spoken to him. i'm not sure. i think that one of the concerns is that if you think of the time period before 9/11, and the military and the intelligence communities have been stripped of some resources and that is one of the things that you have the budget increased of the early 2000s, because we have to build that back up after 9/11. the worry is always going to be for whoever is president, are we having enough -- do we have enough resources that are being put forward? do we have enough imagination to think about and conceive of what possible threats could be out there? what secretary johnson is saying, the big ones we don't
have to worry about as much. whoever the next president is is going to need the support of all americans to figure out how do we fight this threat. the transition period will be very dicey. i think what dick cheney is saying the military option has to be on table. by taking it off the table, it weakens diplomacy. >> these guys brought down -- they killed thousands, 3,500, with box cutters. >> when you think about where we are now militarily in terms of a smaller force. we're overcommitted in so many areas. i think if you talk to anybody who works and is part of our elite special forces teams and units, they will tell you that one of the biggest problems they have right now are the rules of engagement that have hampered them and in many instances endangered their lives. that has been put forward by this administration. there's direct ties there in terms of it. you see any of the people talk about this extensively.
that's something they want to see dialed back. just that one thing alone i think is hugely problematic. you have an administration more concerned about collateral damage than they are at many points about the lives of the men and women, the soldiers on the ground. >> are we safer than we were in the last 15 years? >> absolutely. we're safer but we're never completely safe. you can never be completely safe. you know, the hard fact are that we have dhs, which didn't 15 years ago. i think the key point is not only have we killed bin laden, degraded al qaeda, beat down isis. look at financial transactions, we are a stronger country. i think it's dick cheney and the republicans who play on fear. just try to stir people up and use it as a political weapon. >> he's not in politics. >> he is in politics. >> he doesn't care about
politics anymore. he goes out and hunts. >> not at all. this is to me part of what you have to understand is the changing nature of terrorism and what we have to confront. yeah, we're more -- i think it's just -- it's playing on -- >> politics is one time. >> yesterday on 9/11, you thanked all the tsa agents. the reagan airport. >> we need to go. >> ahead, more nfl players join kaepernick's protest. on 9/11 of all days, will fans stand for this? get it? should they sit our their games? next. ♪ at experian, we believe credit isn't just a score. it's a skill. and like anything else, you can get better. that's why we have tools that show you what happens if you forgot to pay a bill. and answers to questions like, what's the difference between a fico score and other scores?

this weekend, several more nfl players joined colin kaepernick's protest of racial inequality. some chiefs and dolphins raised fists or knelt during the national anthem or afterwards. the commissioner, he seems to be ca okay with it. >> i support our players speaking out on issues they think need to be changed in our socie society. we don't live in a perfect society. our players have strong views about things. i support our players speaking out against that.
