this is a fox news alert. hello, everyone. big breaking news. hillary clinton has finally released her medical records while home recovering from pneumonia. it comes hours after trump revealed his results of his latest physical. let's go live to jennifer griffin. this is a bit of a surprise. i'm sure you have the latest for us. >> reporter: well, we have received several letters, including medical information not just about hillary clinton and her recent pneumonia diagnosis but also of her running mate tim kaine, a letter from his doctor. here is what we know about her pneumonia. it's described by her doctor in
saying that she was given a non-contract ct scan of her chest friday. this is what they found. quote, the results of the ct scan revealed a small right middle lobe pneumonia. this was a mild, none contagious bacterial pneumonia. secretary clinton was treated with an antibiotic which she was advised to take for ten years. she is taking for thyroid, and clar clar clarinex and thyroid medication. her vital signs, blood pressure of 100 over 70. heart rate of 70. all around very normal. according to the doctor, quote, the remainder of her completi l physical exam was normal. she continues to remain healthy and fit.
that from the doctor who examined hillary clinton as recently as today. she saw her last friday as well as sunday here in her home. >> thank you. appreciate it. clinton's latest health episode raised more concerns about her penchant for secrecy. half of the americans think that misled them on her health. she should stop keeping secrets. >> she should have done so? >> yes, i think she should have. i frankly think she ought to release a full medical record to make sure that the people understand that she is fully able to carry out the duties of president of the united states. >> her vulnerability is not health. it's stealth. what she did in trying to i think navigate through questions about her health, she created more questions on the other side. which is really a greater vulnerability. >> so there we have it.
usa sai as you said, she's alive. >> she is. hold the death certificate if you get it. you want her to be in good health. you don't want to wish ill on anybody. you want her to compete and do the debates and run for the presidency. the problem is with so many people, with the e-mails, all these things, going to great lengths to cover and conceal. it doesn't inspire any kind of faith in her about her credibility, about her ability to lead and make good decisions when all of this is going on, which is distracting from whether or not she's capable and qualified to be president of the united states. maybe this is going to help her in the polls. it will kind of put away some of the ideas about her vulnerability and her physical capacity to be able to serve. let's see. >> as a former editor of "men's health" would you evaluate the medical evaluation? >> i mean, look, the only person who had a worse week than hillary was her double.
the good news is -- the good news, it was non-contagious. good news for the child that she hugged. >> there goes -- cross that one off. >> she was about to join the x-men. anyway, how do we know it's her? i'm just wondering. could be david spade in his best role. it could be somebody else. i'm not ready -- >> are you submitting -- >> i don't accept this at all. i go back -- >> it's chelsea's physical. >> it should be the independent person that is appointed by w m whomever that does both candidates or three or however many this theere are. you release heart, lungs -- brain is a -- >> hello. >> do you need a healthy person? >> what? that's the thing -- she's taking some medicines. >> this comes from a sickly guy.
>> she's been -- i think the accusation is she's protective of her personal information but reckless with federal government information and classified information. >> looks like -- weighing what kimberly said, not only did the campaign hide this and the campaign went ahead and bypas ed the emergency room and bill clinton laughing it off. why is everyone making a big deal about a flu? it wasn't the flu. it was a pneumonia. we see the x-ray. thank you for showing the x-ray. that's good news. i think that eliminates another one of the conspiracy theories out there. let me ask you this. you want to get rid of pneumonia. move on. why coumadin? coumadin is a very powerful blood thinner. extremely powerful. a lot of people with a-fib -- >> my mom is on it. >> so many people take coumadin. it's not an exotic medicine. it's not where --
>> what a -- >> you are talking pharmaceuticals. >> a lot of people have a-fib to prevent stroke. there's a reason to prescribe coumadin. >> why b-12? >> can i have you look at it later? >> maybe. >> filling in for -- >> let me just say, after listening to eric, if i'm laughing in 4 1/2 hours, i should seek immediate medical attention. >> my goodness. >> you should seek it anyway. >> coumadin is a medicine that my mom had when she -- but they are about the same age. why did i bring that up? sorry, mom. i'm trying to think -- >> your mom. >> i know. i will see you tomorrow. >> there are less intense medicines used for high cholesterol, thin blood. this is strong. listen, i have many, many friends and family who have been on coumadin. you hold an arm tightly, they will bruise. it's very strong.
just asking, did they go through the reasons for each one of these medications? >> i do not have that in detail. i do not. this is current medications. democrats think this is enough. >> right now, the push all around democrats is get the information out and get it out right now. they think that there is a bleeding to continue our medical analogies, and that it's hurting her. so they think that really to stop the bleeding, get out as much information as you can as quickly as you can and benefit from the contrast to donald trump. who said he was going to put out information and then pulled back. but also remember that she put out extensive review back in -- i think it's may of 2015. he has never put out. the letter from dr. bornstein who was a gastroenterologist was treated as -- that's just donald trump.
you can see the american people see this as feeding into a narrative about hillary clinton not being trustworthy. that's the damage. it's not about health. it's about character. >> donald trump, as you mentioned, today revealed the results of his recent physical exam during an interview with dr. oz. >> if your health is as strong as it seems from your review of systems, why not share your medical records? >> i have really no problem in doing this. i have it right here. should i do it? i don't care. should i do it? [ applause ] it's two letters. one is the report and the other is from lenox hill hospital. >> may i see them? >> sure. >> these are the reports -- >> those were all the tests that were just done last week. >> within 24 hours, we're all going to have all the information that we are probably going to get on the health of the candidates. good enough for you? >> it's great went on dr. oz. amazing. he used the same doctor who wrote the note. it's like having your spouse do
your job review. you need to have -- i will go ba back. i see why this is -- everything has something to hide. if you are my age and you don't have a colorful medical history, then you haven't lived. i think that you have an in-depth exam. release the heart, brain and lungs. i wonder -- i said this yesterday. what will america accept? what happens if you have a mood disorder or treated for substance abuse or had an std? are those things that will keep you from being elected. >> how many people would that prevent from wanting to run in the first place? you had to reveal all this information. >> yeah. i don't know. maybe. if you had good health, you would not have any hesitation. you could also if you had a lot of bad things wrong with you -- you can get a job working in television. >> that's true. >> it's a job requirement. >> exactly. a lot of issues.
happy -- >> we're aware of them every day. >> you happy with the trump oz report? >> all the news networks were outside of the studio and talking to people who would watch. they wanted any nugget. it turns out donald trump declared he is a healthy man. >> okay. if everyone is healthy, can we get back to the issues? >> i would hope so. i think that it's -- it's a strange story about health. clearly, the woman got sick. that's about it. if there's something interesting about releasing information as greg was talking about, it has to do with female issues. how much personal stuff -- we talked about this yesterday. >> yeah. there is. i think there is a -- women's groups are going to make that case. >> that's very different. >> when you have your mammogram and other -- >> my gosh. people get upset walking through tsa. >> you can't hide the fact where she's fainted, passed out, out
cold. >> nobody is trying to hide anything. >> it's more than the general population by a bunch. that matters if you are going to elect someone to be president. the fact they have fainting episodes and blacking out and can't remember. >> you are going -- >> she did invite this on herself. when she told the fbi 40 times she couldn't remember -- >> where she invited this on herself was friday when she told her aides, this is not a big deal. we don't have to play into the trump thing about i've got health problems by telling them i have pneumonia. she grinds it out. she does the meeting, press conferences. my hat is off to her. she was sick. then it came back to smack her in the face. it has hurt her. that's why there's this rush to get the information out today. >> i think they are smart. get it out on the same day and we can move on. trump reaching out to minors and women on the trail. he unveiled his proposal to make childcare more affordable yesterday. will his outreach work? we will debate that up next.

welcome back. donald trump is stepping up his outreach to women and minorities in america. last night he unveiled his proposals to make childcare more affordable for working families. today, he visited flint, michigan, a city still grappling with a water contamination crisis. here is what the gop nominee said to some of them earlier today. >> flint's pain is the result of so many different failures. the damage can be corrected and it can be corrected by people that know what they're doing. unfortunately, the people that caused this tremendous problem had no clue. but it will be fixed quickly and effectively and flint will come back. most importantly, we will bring
jobs back to flint. >> your thoughts on trump visiting an important state for him, michigan? >> i said he was going to visit two months ago. i'm glad to see he went. i'm trying to make political sense of it. what's he think sing? how does this work? i'm not sure the -- the clear impact would be can he hold down hillary clinton's margin with black voters, with latino voters? he can make an impression on a number of republicans who are maybe uncomfortable with him on the bigotry issue by saying, i see donald trump making an effort and i'm getting more comfortable with him. it's not directed at the minority communities. it's directed at -- i suspect specifically republican women, college-educated women, who have some lingering doubts about whether they -- >> compassion, empathy in the
candidate? >> you have to go beyond that. he has been somewhat boisterous and offensive in his statements. >> he is doing better than a couple of other republican candidates over the past election cycles with the african-americans, even though the left would tell you it's not happening. actually, it is. >> something like this, you know, should be exbrambraced. this is the right thing to do regardless of which constituency you are trying to appeal to. it's the right thing to do, to care about people, to be present, to go to different locations. he has been consistent in doing that and making more of an effort recently to do that. do outreach, whether flood victims or whether it's the horrible story of the water supply being so tainted there and needing specific attention and focus. that's what you want a president to do. you want somebody that's going to literally get on the plane and get boots on the ground to talk to people, to see what's going on, to show he cares and he's capable. that i think he has been very consistent. this is a positive thing.
i don't see any negative. >> 50 some days left until the election. >> four. >> 54 days until the election. your time is valuable. time well spent. >> i think so. partly for the reason that juan mentioned, it's national news. it will get a lot of play. michigan, a tough state for him to try to win. if you can hold down african-american turnout in cleveland or cincinnati or philadelphia, that might help you. so i think a day well spent for him. >> craig, your thoughts? i think he is polling around 8% or 9% with african-americans. >> about 15 with arelatinos. >> african-americans in the single digits but higher than romney or mccain. >> i would compare to hillary who last week went divisive and talked about the deplorables. here you have him reaching out while she is basically slapping away. >> let's talk about this last night trump rolled out his proposal to make childcare more affordable for working families.
among them, rewriting the tax code to allow working parents to deduct childcare spending from their taxes, creating special new dependent care savings accounts and allowing mothers six weeks of paid maternity leave. his daughter helped him craft some of the policies. she appeared with him at the event in pennsylvania. >> having employed and empowered thousands of women at every level of his company throughout his entire career, my father understands the needs of the modern workforce and is offering a new and innovative solution where others have not. raising children full-time is one of the hardest jobs anyone can do. and it's essential that our policies recognize and honor that reality. >> we need working mothers to be fairly compensated for their work. and have access to affordable, quality childcare for their kids. we want higher pay, better wages and a growing economy for everyone. these solutions must update laws
passed more than a half a century ago when most women were still not in the labor force. >> working mom, your thoughts on this. >> this is one of the most significant points of the convention when ivanka got up and talked about these issues. you know as a mother, she cares about this. it's probably something she tried to get her father's ear on. she's showing leadership. i think it's important. it's not necessarily widely accepted platform issues for the republicans. this is an area that needs to be draes addressed. i like the vision and her passion that she's showing to try to put this forward. is it going to resonate and tie in for her father? that's the idea. >> dana, i'm not sure the -- it could cost a lot of money. >> there's two ways to split it. if i could recommend this article, it's called the gop is
in an ideological war. i think it's in "salon." he quotes abby mccloski who is a conservative economist who 18 months ago started talking about how republicans could actually -- you could find a way to do a paid maternity leave part in a way that is consistent with conservative philosophy and a way that won't break the budget. childcare point, i think that's separate. on the paid maternity leave, this is something that i think the republicans could figure out a with a to get right on. they could figure out early on in this next congress separated out from the childcare thing and actually go forward with the plan like this. the thing that's interesting to me and the reason there's this ideological problem is that 18 months ago, if you supported abby's idea as a republican, you were called names. right? then when donald trump puts it out last night, all of a sudden people who were calling people
names say it's a brilliant plan. that is frustrating. i think if you think it's a brilliant plan, understand why it's a brilliant plan. there are good conservative reasons to actually support it. i commend the article to you or her work. she's on twitter and elsewhere. >> i can interrupt? i want to pick up on something dana said. there's a piece here i'm looking at in "commentary," titled trump's reckless spending spree. the latest pander to voters that sacrifices core conservative principals. last night i'm on o'reilly. o'reilly says this looks like he is trying to out democrat the democrats. crowdhammer says the same thing. >> there's a -- the conservatives, there's a way do this consistent with your philosophy. >> they are worried about how to pay for it. >> i'm saying -- first of all, his pay for it is not said. hillary clinton who put out a plan more than a year ago on this issue said she would raise taxes on rich. i know you would object to that. that's honest and
straightforward. >> are you suggesting i'm not honest and straightforward. >> no, no, no, not you. >> do you want to take this part of the pay for it part? what is the strategy? >> i want to hit the minority community. the women's vote last night. >> this is absolute pandering. ronald reagan said it was the worst nine words you could hear, i'm with the government and i'm here to help. now, under trump, that's become the republican motto. this is actually an obama victory. after eight years of progressivism, so-called conservatives are embracing big government. this is an entitlement. this is an entitlement, paid maternity leave. how is that different than obamacare? if you can't beat him, join him. the republican party, the concept of limited government is no longer appealing to people who have become used to big government. the policies are being written or pushed by a democrat. ivanka is a democrat. the republican party is being run by democrats. >> can i alternate
explanation? with hillary clinton saying, i'm going to deal with these issues for a certain part of my following, let her keep digging, i'm not going to take the shovel. >> i think that this might be wise. maybe it's time. maybe small government is over. if you know you can win on big government, do it. conservatives embracing entitleme entitlement, that's like liberals advocating one stop shopping for ar-15. >> we will leave it there. colin powell is the latest victim of hacking. the former secretary of state's private e-mail messages published for the world to read. it's part of a disturbing trend this presidential election has had. our take on it next. details coming right up. you totaled your brand new car. nobody's hurt, but there will still be pain. it comes when your insurance company says they'll only pay three-quarters of what it takes to replace it. what are you supposed to do? drive three-quarters of a car?

colin powell's e-mails were hacked. there's juicy stuff in there. i'm sure many will dive right in. all in the name, of course, of transparency. right? as this happens, the medical files of our prized u.s. olympic athletes were posted online by russian hackers. those kids had this coming. after all, one leak is so awesome, why can't the other be? are some hacks heroic and others evil? what does it say when you embrace one hack because it hurts someone but not another? doesn't that make you a hack, too? ever the hero, records were released. he controlled the flow of info. that's no hock. why not let your worst enemy have the info about the discussion you and your lawyer about the rape charge.
a man such writings had wanted in jail. all bets and principals are off. it's marble blindness that comes with teal sport politics. drool with glee over scoop after scoop of exposed linen feeding the crocodile, hoping it will eat you last. when it does, i will bring the condiments. >> spicy mustard? >> if you enjoy going through colin powell's e-mail, would you still be happy going through jennifer laurenwrence's naked pictures? they were stolen. >> versus someone who says -- like the candidates running, they are interested in transparency but not in deceit, where someone will hack somebody's personal information. i'm not for the hacking. nevertheless, now it is out there. then there's a discussion to be had in terms of political analysis of how it may or may
not impact, which is separate and distinction from a more moral discussion to say, is this the right thing? is this the right thing ethically? should news organizations put this energy forward because of that? the hypocrisy of it. these are interesting questions it raises. it's like multiple levels. >> i'm thinking long-term on this. at some point, fnc will be hacked. all those e-mails we sent back and forth, stuff i say about juan -- >> and me. >> yes. we will have to sit here awkwardly while cnn and msnbc go -- >> let's open all our e-mails. get it over with. >> stop e-mails all together. >> you have to reconsider every single e-mail you send. >> at 2:00 a.m. are my favorite. >> the difference between the hack and the ed snowden idea, i'm exposing what the nsa is doing. there's a big difference. everyone will get burned by the
hacking. every single e-mail will get exposed. we will have to -- when ed snowden points out something is going on that affects every american that may be unconstitutional, that's a very different thing. i know i'm going to get beat up on the social media sites. but i agree, he needed to expose that. for ed snowden asking to come back, asking president obama for a pard on, i would be in favor. >> you are going to bring that up again? >> it's popular. it is popular. >> it's the right thing to do. >> i disagree with that. i do think it's very popular. i think that's the pressure. >> it can be popular and wrong. >> why should -- >> like the red hot chili peppers. >> there you go. why should he then be rewarded for violating protocol and putting national security -- >> violating the ultimate protocol of the constitution. >> that's a -- >> you have a legitimate point. it has changed my mind.
remember, we went from the patriot act to the freedom act in large part in reaction to people saying, you know, this is big government creeping in on us. what's going on now -- this kind of -- the russia getting involved. everybody thinks the latest hacks are russia. russia trying to influence our election. russia trying to damage. this d.c. leaks thing, it's tawdry. it's very ugly. it reminds you then, of course, from my perspective, what about hillary clinton and her e-mails? you think, those -- all of a sudden, we're going to see what you wrote in your e-mails and see if that builds a case against you. in the case of the e-mails from colin powell, but it seems to me everybody is talking about it. >> yes. >> that's because we like that stuff. >> i mean, it's out there now. >> okay. there are naked pictures of jennifer lawrence. i have to look at them. they're out there. this is terrible.
>> greg, that doesn't affect the u.s. presidential election. a lot of the problem is, the stuff in the colin powell e-mails reflect the narrative that's been going on and the discussion and about -- i didn't say it -- >> you are going to use it. >> i'm telling you the electorate is hearing it and november 8, perhaps it impacts. he's talking about her health. he's talking about the fact they have a loose relationship with the truth, they're not honest. >> he have a political donor, a guy who is a loser, he bet on the wrong candidate. he is writing to poultrying to ingratiate himself -- >> he said obama and clinton hate obama. then he says -- >> stop. >> he says trump is a national -- >> i'm releasing my medical records. so you don't have to hack me. this is from my doctor. >> is that from dr. segel? >> there are consequence.

back in may, we told you about the anti-gun document hosted and executive produced by katie couric. it made gun rights activists look stumped. >> if there are no background checks for gun purchasers, how do you prevent felons or terrorists from purchasing a gun? >> luckily, the second amendment supporters recorded the interview and proved they answered immediately. take a look. >> how do you prevent felons or
terrorists from walking into, safe, a license gun dealer and purcha purchasing a gun? >> if you are not in jail, you should have your basic rights. >> if you are a terrorist or felon? >> if you are a felon or done time, you should have your rights. >> the fact is, we do have statutes, both at the federal and state level, that prohibited classes of people from being in possession of fire arms. >> that's what actually happened. at first couric defended it but later apologized for it. now she's facing even more trouble. yesterday the virginia gun rights group featured in this film sued couric and the makers of under the gun for defamation. they are asking for $12 million for being made to look like fools who didn't stand up for the second amendment. this is a story that we predicted was going to go forward in terms of the groups saying, we're going to sue because of what happened.
this film went everywhere and it was misleading because that's not what happened. they gave a response. >> i'm glad they went forward. what katie couric's company or the -- the company that made the film said it was artistic license but it was political license. it's good to see there are consequences for this type of editing. the other thing is that they're on the wrong side of public opinion. doesn't mean they are wrong in their opinions in term it was katie couric. the recent poll said 70% of americans prefer to preserve gun rights over gun control. that's a pretty high number. >> huge. >> i think that i understand what katie couric's team was trying to do. but they got caught. >> so what's the fallout from this? >> i don't know how katie couric is on the hook. i understand you sue everyone and see what you can get. i think she's a fantastic journalist. i wish she hadn't defended the group until she had all the facts and we saw what actually happened -- the unedited
version. but i don't think she should be on the hook. production company if anyone is could be. if that's going to be the case, we have -- everyone has a lawsuit against them that we can open up for selective editing, 90% of the stuff we say that we have never said or cutting out the context of what we say. i have a -- >> it matters. >> i like the fact they're calling attention to it. i don't know if they will win any lawsuits. >> it's definition. who is defamed? i think you could say, you were made to look silly. you were not properly represented. were you -- did you suffer some injury? i don't think so. to me, that's a weak thing, especially -- i'm big on journalistic rights and privileges and protections. first amendment protections. i would have to say, i think this is a weak case. you have people who don't like the idea that katie couric says she wants to be a voice for the victims of gun violence. >> greg?
>> this is why you all are going to do a tv show, have a friend come along and in the green room record it with an iphone so whatever -- whenever anything is edited out, it's there. imagine if fnc had done something like this with black lives matter, how big that would be. thank god, we don't do any selective editing. just the other way, i was in lieu -- i was in lou dobbs' hot tub. anyway, we had a huge barbecue. >> i can't. >> this happens. >> go to him last. >> it's a setup. next, an exciting segment for juan. he will celebrate president obama's economy. the rest of us aren't so sure what there is to be celebrating. we're interested to hear what he has to say. back in a moment. we are the tv doctors of america.

table don't like to give him credit. but it seems to me he deserves it. even he knows what a remarkable job he has done. >> turned around a declining economy. we helped our auto industry set new records. our business has created 15 million new jobs. slashed dependence on foreign oil. more americans are working. more have health insurance. incomes are rising. poverty is falling. and gas is $2 a gallon. i didn't even -- thank you for reminding me. thanks, obama. >> my goodness. >> there he was playing on -- >> can't take it. >> can he pat himself on the back any more than that? some lady in the audience to say $2 gas. >> i was going to explain, that thank you obama is something conservatives -- anything goes
