7:06 am

7:09 am
mark, good morning. let's start with the e-mails. it has been nearly nine months since hillary clinton held a press conference. she chose late night tv to address these new questions. was that the right way to address it? >> well, they seemed to think so. it's obviously a very safe setting for her. she comes off well. most people do. as a member of the media, i have a horse in this race. and i would love her to do a press conference like everyone else would. >> what question would you ask? >> why is it taking so long. she's so glib about okay what's a few more e-mails to release. why don't we see them? what else is in there? i would be more pointed than that. but it's very, very glib to come off in a situation that keeps lingering. it also looks politically very suspect. >> these e-mails, we do know they show contact between the clinton foundation and the state department.
7:10 am
potentially how damaging is this for her? >> that's the second batch of e-mails. >> i think it's very damaging. it is damaging because it links two ongoing issues for her. one, the e-mail scandal. two, questions about the foundation. it puts two and two together. it's pretty easy to see you have not a quid pro quo but the interactions between the two are very carefully linked there. this also ensures that it's going to linger through october, probably right up until election day. that's not something any campaign would want. >> can we talk about donald trump for a seconds. being vague on immigration, something that was such a big part of his campaign early on. will this hurt him? >> i don't think it will hurt him. they have a strategy where they think we're going to be a little bit softer in our ret lihetoric. hopefully we won't alienate our base. this is the core issue for him. this is arguably the issue that
7:11 am
got him the nomination. >> you really think he can pick up more hispanic voters by saying i'm not going to deport them but i'm going to build a wall. >> the rhetoric is fair and humane. those are words he did not use during the primary. in that sense, it may be presents a softer message. >> donald trump is raising questions about hillary clinton's stamina, her health. he said we have never had two candidates nominees as old as donald trump and hillary clinton. 70 years old donald trump, 68 years old hillary clinton. she went on late night tv last night, addressed those charges in part by opening a can of pickles to address her strength. >> the pickling test doesn't put all these questions to rest? >> i must say i have trouble opening up a can of pickles. >> it's an issue we can all relate to. i think hillary clinton has been more transparent.
7:12 am
her personal physician has released a letter that seemed pretty authoritative if somewhat brief. >> it was two pages. >> trump's letter is even shorter. >> she can say, you know, rightly that he's released viea virtually nothing. if you count the two paragraphs that his doctor released. i think people would like to see more. what i'm curious about in the larger sense is, why do you make this an issue now if you're donald trump? the health, the stamina of your opponent. maybe he thinks he's sewing some kind of doubt. but there are other bigger issues like these e-mails to focus on. breaking news from afghanistan. an american service member was killed this morning. a nato patrol set off an i.e.d. one other american and six afghan soldiers were wounded. the fbi is investigating a stabbing in virginia that may have been inspired by isis. a man and woman were seriously

7:15 am
zika cases. katrina bernard's third child is due in december. >> this isn't a cold. it's life or death. >> reporter: although bernard lives outside the zika zones she's scared to leave her miami-dade county home. >> seeing all of these poor babies with microcephaly and seeing women having to make the choice to either not continue their pregnancy or to just be dealt a really hard hand. >> reporter: there are 69 pregnant women in the state of florida who have been infected with zika. theling linked to microcephaly. >> you can put a box on a map but you can't keep the mosquitos in that box. >> reporter: earlier this month christina relocated to chicago and she plans to stay there for the remainder of her pregnancy. >> you inconvenience yourself so that your baby is safe. >> reporter: we are reaching the
7:16 am
peak of hurricane season and should we get a storm here, standing water after that storm will pose a real problem when it comes to mosquitos breeding and transmitting the zika virus. here on south beach they will fine you for standing water even a little bit of it. because remember, those mosquitos can breed in something like this, a bottle cap. minutes ago president obama left the white house to visit flood ravaged areas in southern louisiana. this trip will enable the president to see the recovery effort for himself. the disaster killed at least 13 people. tens of thousands are beginning the long process of trying to rebuild there. manuel, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this is just some of what the president will see when he arrives later today. people's flooded out vehicles where you can still see the water line, just how high the water came in this neighborhood and all of their belongings destroyed. debris pickup has already started here in baton rouge. but removing all of it could
7:17 am
take months. >> it just breaks my heart. and it's devastating and you don't know what you're going to do and you're just scared honestly. >> reporter: you're scared right now? >> yes. >> reporter: the fear of what comes next is setting in for nikki mcdonald and thousands more in louisiana, where lifelong possessions now rest in piles on the side of the street. what's it like when you look at your neighborhood right now? >> it's devastating. going down the street and you see people's entire house is on the street right now. all of this stuff they're accumulated and worked for is sitting on the streets right now. >> reporter: everything. >> everything. >> reporter: the same is true for wallace and shirley. they lost everything in their baton rouge home. >> all of our treasures, our memories on the side of the road. and we don't know what we're going to do. >> reporter: the couple in their
7:18 am
