8:02 am
donald trump said he was being sarcastic when he said president obama and hillary clinton founded isis. "they don't get sarcasm" he tweets? >> he repeatedly called the president the founder of isis. hugh hewitt gave him a chance to clarify his comments. trump stressed he meant what he said. >> i know what you meant. you meant that he created the vacuum, he lost the peace. >> i meant he's the founder of isis, i do. he is the most valuable i give him the most valuable player award. >> he's not sympathetic to them. he hates them. >> i don't care. the way he got out of iraq, that was the founding of isis. >> trump argues that isis exploited the withdrawal of u.s. troops from iraq in 2011. he ignores the fact that president obama didn't set that date. in 2008 then president george w. bush negotiated a teal with iraq to remove all american troops by the end of 2011. president obama, who promised
8:03 am
and enforce the bush era time line. in 2007 trump said the u.s. should declare victory and leave. >> donald trump isn't the only person on the campaign trail having troubles with fact. they are keeping fact checkers busy, all of the comments you're about to hear are not true. >> hillary wants to abolish essentially abolish the second amendment. >> we have the most dynamic, productive workforce in the bar none >> she said out loud we are going to raise taxes on the middle class. >> the thing that aiz maed me is the depth of his trash talking of latinos, saying that all mexicans are rapists and going afterimmigrants. >> the obama/clinton war on coal has cost michigan over 50,000 jobs. >> director comey said my answers were truthful and what i've said is consistent with

8:05 am
often aren't true. >> donald trump says he was being sarcastic with his latest comment. does that exempt him from the fact or fiction test? >> i'll tell you, we had originally rated his claim pants on fire, which is our lowest rating, the rating we use for falsehoods that are not just false but ridiculously false. here is a talking point he's been using for several days. he double down yesterday in the interview with hugh hewitt, and now he claims he was being sarcast sarcastic. it's truly remarkable. i think we need a new rating on our truth-o-meter for this. >> you're talking about the claim that he had that barack obama and hillary clinton founded isis. our john dickerson says it's statements like that, trump is baiting the fact checkers like to you keep the conversation
8:06 am
remarkable that he wants to keep the conversation going, particularly when i can't imagine that any communication strategist would say it makes sense. i mean, he is getting fact checkers and other journal is to point out again and again that his statements are false. doesn't mach a lot of sense. he likes baiting everybody. >> bill, is there some point to the notion that the checking system needs to be refined at all when somebody says the sky is not blue? i mean, is there a need to fact check that? >> well, we're selective in what we fact check at politifact. question will check claims where we think people will wonder, really, is that true? i think with the claim that
8:07 am
hear that and wonder really, what role did they play? we looked into it. isis was founded in 2004, so four years before barack obama was elected, and those are the kind of things we fact check so it's not like we're social scientists. we're journalists and trying to satisfy our readers and viewers' curiosity. >> hillary clinton is not immune right now. recent poll 59% of people that hillary clinton is dishonest. how does she stand up against the fact checking and that percentage as well? >> you know it's interesting. her percentage of false and pants on fire ratings is about the same as other american politicians. i think it's 13%. by contrast, trump is at 55%. i think what has happened with secretary clinton is that people
8:08 am
the statement with comey that you played earlier, that was one where she repeated something she had said before that the fact checkers had said was false, and people remember those big moments. >> bill adair, good look keeping up with the next three months. thank you for your time. the gold rush continues for the united states in rio. michael phelps earned gold in the 00 meter individual medley yesterday, his fourth gold in rio, the 22nd of his -y olympic career. simone manuel was considered a long shot but shared gold in the 100 meter freestyle, the first black female american swimmer to ever strike gold in an olympic swimming event. >> simone biles earned the highest score on quality but one vault the world's top gymnast will not perform.

death defying stunt. good umbrella, good morning. >> sorry guys, we're trying to keep it together out here this morning. it's not as impressive as those gymnasts. their skills pretty much all are amazing. there is one move called the vault of death that only a number of athletes have landed. vaulting begins with a sprint, then the launch, followed by flips, twists and spins. >> same vault. >> simone biles may take the occasional step but from the start she's a step ahead of the competition. seven-time olympic medalist shannon miller. >> i think for simone, whether she wins five gold medals or whatnot, i think what makes her so dominant is her difficulty. >> despite all those skills, there's one move so difficult even biles won't try it. it's known as the vault of
8:10 am
yelena prudenova landed it in 1999. this egyptian gymnast tried it in 2014. in rio two are expected to attempt it, deepa karmakar is one of five women to successfully land it. ok sanaa is a 41-year-old mom and two-time olympic medalist from uzbekistan competing in her seventh olympics. gymnast sprints into a front hand spring two and a half somersaults forward ideally landing on her feet. even the best athletes say this ends one of two ways. >> it's one of the skills either you're on or you're injured. if you're on or off, there's no half way. >> kyla ross was a member of the fierce five who won team gold in london. >> i think the biggest challenge of this vault is gaining enough
8:11 am
>> and in vaulting when one detail is off it can mean disaster. >> it's like you have to practice it every day and that can be so tooling on your body and that is where you risk injury. >> reporter: when a french gymnast broke his leg last weekend in qualifying. >> this vault is not easy for her. >> the horse's height was set too low at the 2000 sydney games. when it works this of muscle can flip through the air and still stick a landing. sunday night's vault final is the first of four individual finals for the women. simone biles will compete in three of those. at the end of next week she could have five gold medals. gayle? >> we hope she gets all five of them. hold onto the umbrella. one of the videos you watch, ow, ow, ow. i don't want to do anything that has death in it but good luck to them sunday night.

8:14 am
then i made the switch. xarelto? significantly lowers the risk of stroke in people with afib not caused by a heart valve problem. it has similar effectiveness to warfarin. warfarin interferes with vitamin k and at least six blood clotting factors. xarelto? is selective targeting one critical factor of your body's natural clotting function. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. like all blood thinners, ing to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking you may bruise more easily, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve
8:15 am
before starting xarelto tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. to help protect yourself from a stroke, ask your doctor about xarelto. there's more to know. xarelto. my girl cindy bought this fridge from lowe's because of their worry-free 30-day satisfaction guarantee on appliances. that's what i'm talking about cindy. i like your style. now get 20% off appliances $396 or more, good is in every blue diamond almond. good is a catalyst, good is contagious. and once it gets going there is no stopping what you can do. get your good going. blue diamond almonds.

kohl's is out there and t.j. max. if i'm thinking about price that is where i'm going to go. when i go to macy's i don't necessarily think about price but if they don't have the right price i'm not buying it there. the segment vault of the death. macy's is facing a very similar challenge, right? they got pressure from all side. >> you mentioned amazon in that online component. how do these department stores get people back into the actual store? >> that goes to the quote that you what terry lundgren and jeff jeanette are seeing they are taking some of the money and saving from closing these stores and the stores that they are keeping, they are going to revest in them and make it a better customer experience and that may include from getting the maryland better to doing new things they don't have at macy's right now. urban outfitters, the retailer, a couple of years ago they bought a pizzeria. you think if i'm a young kid and
8:20 am
maybe i go to outfitters. >> there is something to be said for going into the store and trying something on and experiencing it. do you know what i mean? ? >> i know. you and i talked about that. i have that too. >> i don't know if it's going to fit or whatever. there is an opportunity here one would think. >> there is an opportunity for a certain generation of millennials, they grew up shopping online and all they know. to get them in the store you can touch and feel the merchandise. that feels to me. i'm not that kind of guy because i want to put it on and make sure it fits on if i buy it because it's a half if i buy it on online. the kid, not how they shop. you have to give them another reason to come to the store. >> back to dana's point about amazon. recently they announced that they are taking over jet and lease a cargo plane to get the merchandise out. how in the world do you compete? the word is they will eventually

8:34 am
twice. 'not just that she was the first black female swimmer to win a gold medal. she also broke an olympic record, so she was not even expected to medal and all of a sudden she comes out of nowhere and ties for the gold, setting an olympic record and making this real historic moment and it was something to see, a great olympic moment for team usa in these games. >> let's talk about michael phelps. that was a big showdown last night between him and ryan lochte. what is the talk in town today? last night. >> he was. 31-year-old is not supposed to be this good in a swimming pool but michael phelps has come back to the olympics and he is just tearing it up. i think what people are talking about is not so much that michael phelps won but a lot of people are talking about the fact that ryan lochte didn't even win a medal. going into this it was all bout the duel in the pool and these guys going neck to neck for gold and after that, it was kind of disappointing to hear ryan lochte. he seemed so disappointed and
8:35 am

8:43 am
that we had in the era before internet and before radio and television, when we sat outside under the stars at night and told our stories. >> reporter: living in or near a city you will never see skies like this. it is inspiring and humbling and we can show you what it looks like on camera, but it's worth seeing in person. >> awesome. >> reporter: amateur astronomer marina car feeling well. what is it about looking up? >> it reminds me how small they are. >> reporter: the notion of preserving these skies is one that resonates with you? >> yes. i'm from the phoenix area, we have extreme light pollution. you can't see much out even in the suburbs, and when you come out here and you can just look up and see the milky way and incredible dark skies it's like wow, we should turn off our lights more often. >> reporter: getting named dark sky is a long process, that will
8:44 am
