8:01 am
said a man said he fired in self-defense. >> a child was ejected on the last turn and highest point of a roller coaster. >> they got a closer look at the eyes of a shark. >> for them, a normal life. >> if we can learn from these out liers, hopefully we can all learn. >> who will tell dr. david agus he doesn't need to wear a ea >> everybody was upstaged by this relatively known swimmer who made history, not once, but twice. >> the united states is killing it at the olympics. olympic athletes are bringing home so much gold, they have to get the columbia weight-lifting team to carry it all for them to
8:02 am
morning he was just being sarcastic when he said that president obama and hillary clinton founded isis. trump blasted critics with a tweet a few hours ago saying, in part, quote, they don't get sarcasm? over the last two days, trump repeatedly called the president the founder of isis. conservative radio host hugh hewitt gave him a chance to clarify his comments. trump stressed he meant what he said. >> look. i know what you meant. you meant he create the vacuum and lost the peace. >> no.i isis. he is the most valuable player. i give him that award and her too. >> he is not sympathetic to them and hates them and trying to kill them. >> he is the founder. the way he got out of the iraq that was the founding of isis. >> trump argues that isis exploited the withdrawal of u.s. troops in iraq in 2011. he ignores the fact that president obama didn't set that date. in 2008 then president george w. bush negotiated a deal with iraq to remove all forces by the end
8:03 am
president obama promised voters he would end the iraq war. in trump said in 2008 the u.s. should declare victory and leave. >> donald trump is not the only person on the campaign trail having trouble with facts. colon and trump are keeping fact checking people busy. all of the things you're about to hear are not true. >> hillary clinton wants to essentially abolish the second amendment. >>ha productive work force in the world. far none. >> she actually said outloud we are going to raise taxes on the middle class. >> the thing that has amazed me is the depth of the trash talking of latinos, saying that all mexicans are rapists and going after latino immigrants. >> the obama-clinton war has could have had 50,000 jobs.

testimony was consistent and i have told the american people. that there were decisions discussed and made to retroactively classify the e-mails. >> joining us is bill adair and a duke professor and joins us from charlie rose country in raleigh, north carolina. good to see you. >> good morning, gayle. >> you just heard put together of untruths. before we get into specifics, how does this season compare to political seasons in the past in terms of factually challenged statements, if you will? >> well, it's been crazy busy for us at politifact. the magnitude of the claims and the magnitude of the falsehoods is remarkable and i think it reflects how the media has changed and so many more ways now that candidates can get
8:05 am
that allows them to say things that often aren't true. >> donald trump says that 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. but, you know, it's really remarkable. here is a talking point that has been used for several days now. he doubled-down on it yesterday as you noted in the interview with hugh hewitt and now he claims he was being sarcastic. it's just truly remarkable. i think we need a new rating on our truth 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 that trump is baiting the fact checkers
8:06 am
>> well, i think it is remarkable that he wants to keep the conversation going, particularly when i can't imagine that any communications strategist would say it makes sense. i mean, he is getting fact checkers and other journalists to point out again and again that his statements are false, and it just makes no -- it doesn't make a lot of sense. is he baiting fact checkers? definitely -- he like baiting everybody. >> but, bill, i mean, is there some point to the notion that the checking system need 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 are selective in what we fact check at politifact. we will fact check claims where people wonder and, really, is that true? i think with the claim that president obama and hillary
8:07 am
it's legitimate -- you know, people hear that and say really, what role did that he play? we looked into it and we found that isis was actually founded in 2004, so four years before barack obama was elected, and those are the kind of things we fact check. it's not like we are social scientists. we are journalists and we are trying to satisfy our readers and viewers' curiosity. >> hillary clinton is not immune. say 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%. but i think what has happened with secretary clinton is that
8:08 am
so the statement with comey that you played earlier, you know, there 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, good luck keeping up with them the next three months. >> you're going to be busy! >> we are. >> thank you for your time. the gold rush continues for the united states in rio. michael phelps earned gold in the 200-meter individual medley in rio yesterday and his fourth go i 16-year olympic career. simone manuel was considered a long shot but she shared gold in the 100-meter freestyle and the first black female swimmer to strike gold in an olympic swimming event. >> 19-year-old gymnast simone biles made her own headline and earned the gold medal in the individual all-around and earned the highest score on vault. there is one vault, even the world's top gymnast, will not perform.
8:09 am
with details on the death defying stunt. good morning. >> sorry, guys. we are trying to keep it together out here this morning. it's not as impressive as gymnasts. their skills pretty much all of them are amazing. but there is one move you were talking about called the vault of death that only a number of athletes have landed. vaulting begins with a sprint. then the launch. followed by flips, twist and a spin. simone biles may take the occasionally step, but from the start, she is a step ahead of the competition. seven-time olympic medalist shannon miller. >> i think simone, whether she wins five gold medals or what not, i think what makes her so dominant is her difficulty. >> reporter: despite all of
8:10 am
it. it's known as the vault of death. it was first landed in 1999. this egyptian gymnast tried it in 2014 and nearly avoided serious injures. in rio, two are expected to attempt it. indian gymnast car is only one of five women to successfully land it. pubata is another. a 41-year-old mom and two-time olympic uzbekistan. they launch themselves into two and a half somersaults forward and ideally landing on her feet. >> it's one of those skills you're either on or you're injured. if you're on or off. >> reporter: tyler watts was a member of the fierce five who won team gold in london. >> i think the biggest challenge
8:11 am
>> reporter: and in vaulting, when even one detail is off, it could mean disaster. >> you have to practice it every day and that could be so tolling on your body and that is where you risk injury. >> reporter: a french gymnast broke his leg last weekend in qualifying. or a gymnast flopped and crashed here. after the horse's height was set too low at the 2000 sydney games. but when it bundle of muscle with flip and twist and bend through the air and still stick a landing. >> it just gets better. >> reporter: sunday night's vault final is the first of four individual finals for the women. simone biles will compete in three of those. so at the end of next week, she could have five gold medals. gayle? >> oh, and we hope she gets all five of them! hold on to the umbrella! that is one of those videos you watch, where you go, ow! i don't want to go anything that

swimming, this is a big, big night. she made history twice. it's 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 and setting the historic moment and it was something to see. a great olympic moment for team usa in these games. >> reporter: let's talk about michael phelps. it was a big showdown between hind what is the talk in town today? he was amazing to watch last pn. >> reporter: he was. a 31-year-old is not supposed to be this good in a swimming pool but micel to the olympics and he is just tearing it up. i think what people are talking about 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 about about the duel in the pool and these two guys going neck-to-neck for gold. after that, it was kind of disappointing to hear ryan
