7:05 am
>> oh, no, no. this is political power. >> reporter: at an afternoon rally in fayetteville, new york city mayor rudy giuliani felt a need to clarify. >> and then he said, you have the power to do something about it and what he meant by that was you have the power to vote against her. >> reporter: even before his latest questionable comments, a rash of gop security professionals announced fears of a trump presidency could >> these people are not the kind of people we want. these are people that have given us a messed up world. >> reporter: fresh off his primary win in wisconsin, house speaker paul ryan refused to comment on the latest trump firestorm. >> it sounds like just a joke gone bad. i hope he clears it up very quickly. >> reporter: and continued to stand by his party's nominee. >> we will find far better receptivity of our agenda that we are trying to get on track to fix this country's problems than the hillary clinton administration.
7:06 am
>> reporter: in a move without precedent, the united states secret service acknowledged it was aware of trump's comments about clinton. the agency released this tweet, saying, they are aware of the comments which some perceive, dana, as a threat from one major party nominee against another. >> major, thank you. a poll just released this morning, shows nearly 1 out of 5 republican voters want trump to quit the race. the poll was taken before this latest controversy. nancy cordes is covering the clinton gn amendment comment to help with fund-raising. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the clinton campaign says trump's comments demonstrate why more and more top republicans are defecting to their side every day. in fact, they are unveiling a new evident today to put those republicans to work, recruiting others. >> secretary clinton, any reaction to donald trump's comments about the second amendment of you today? >> reporter: in florida, clinton ignored the uproar but her
7:07 am
>> i really, franklin, couldn't believe he said it. >> reporter: tim kaine said trump's comments is a man who is unfit to lead. other democrats came down even harder. senator elizabeth warren tweeted, trump makes death threats because he is a pathetic coward who can't handle the fact that he is losing to a girl. former congresswoman gabby giffords said the following. >> get him out of here. throw him out! >> reporter: the clinton campaign argued trump's rhetoric should not come as a surprise to anyone who has watched his rallies. >> i'd like to punch him in the face, i'll tell you. knock the crap out of him, would you? seriously. okay? just knock the hell -- i promise you, i will pay for the legal fees, i promise. i promise. i could stand in the middle of fifth avenue and shoot somebody
7:08 am

7:09 am
messages that focuses on ties between the clinton foundation when she was secretary of state. how is the clinton campaign responding to that today? >> the clinton campaign has always denied any foundation donors received any special treatment, because she was secretary of state. but, now, this batch of new e-mails obtained by judicial watch includes a few e-mails exchanged between huma abedin and doug band who led the clinton's foundation global initiatives. in one with exchange, abedin requested a favor for someone who seemed to be looking for a job. in another, band asked abedin to connect a liberty knees billionaire who is one of the top donors of the foundation with someone in lebanon. abedin said she would give him a call. the clinton campaign says she's e-mails did not involve secretary clinton herself or the
7:10 am
band was operating in his capacity as an aide to former president clinton and not as a foundation official. >> thanks, nancy. dan senor was a senior adviser to the romney campaign in 2012. >> good to be with you. >> first, a controversy with the second amendment and donald trump. do you take him at his word he was simply talking about political power? >> no. i've watched it probably 20 times. the best you can say, if you really want to give him joking about a subject that you shouldn't be joking about. which is about inciting violence, particularly insetting violence particularly someone under secret service protection and particularly for secret service putting out a statement saying they are aware of his comments. >> do you believe his words should lead you to say he was inciting violence? >> well it had the effect of inciting violence and i'm not sure his intention but the effect of inciting violence. he has a pattern.
7:11 am
you look what ed about megyn kelly and judge curiel and encouraging russians to hack and get hillary clinton's e-mails and the wisconsin primary what he said about abortions and about the physically disabled reporter from "the new york times," what ed, after each one of these incidents, i didn't mean that. give me the benefit of the doubt and it was taken out of context and it's misinterpreted. if you have a pattern where you constantly say things that are highly divisive and and provocative so much so you have to clean it up one would think you would be more cautious with your words. when you're talking about the second amendment and something that could elude to violence against a high profile political figure under secret service protection, you choose your words carefully. he did not do that which is just another example, for me and other leaders within the republican party, that he is extremely reckless. >> let's talk about the leaders a second. paul ryan who won big last
7:12 am
win in washington he called it a bad joke gone bad. do you think the leadership is worried in the republican party? because when you talk to the trump campaign, they sort of have a "mad" magazine out, me worry? do you think the leadership is worried? >> the leadership of the party is actually worried. the real clear average poll, the sort of average of polls has hillary clinton up right now nationally by 7.5 points. twice as high as barack obama was at this point against john mccain in 2008 and mitt romney in 2012. that is nationally. she is even ahead in states that republicans have won in previous presidential elections. she is competitive in georgia and north carolina and arizona. if she wins those states and wins florida and ohio,dana. shd best barack obama's electorate
7:13 am
this could be a trounce. >> we still got time, though, dan. >> you could say that is an outlier and it won't affect the races. i'm dubious. if hillary clinton gets, you know, 350 to 400 electorate college votes, it means the senate is highly unlikely to keep senate majority hands and i think it poseses a real threat to the house majority. >> do the release of the e-mails threaten her? this is the thing many people say there may be there somethint of connection at the state department? >> what is amazing to me there is so much material to mind, vis-a-vis hillary clinton. these e-mails, again, are so damaging. it's no wonder that her untrust worthy numbers and unfavorable numbers are so high. in any other election with any other republican running with someone with this story and these numbers, they would be trouncing her. because the republicans nominated donald trump, she is able to lead even with this kind of baggage. >> once again, his headline sort
7:14 am
>> right. >> dan, appreciate it. >> a woman in florida was shot and killed by a police officer in a class about police procedures. the chief called the death of 73-year-old mary knowlton a horrible accident and it happened in >> here's how the scenario usually goes. the officer plays the bad guy. the civilian plays the officer. in this case the 73-year-old lady walked up to what was believed to be the bad guy. the officer. he shot her. he should have been using blank rounds, but instead he had live ammo in his weapon.
7:15 am
mary nolton was among the 35 people taking part in the eight-week police academy. >> two participants were randomly selected to be put through a shoot-don't shoot scenario. they were using decisions on making simulated lethal force in live role play. during the first scenario in a horrible accident participant mary nolton was mistakenly struck with a live round. t transported to a local hospital. there was a statement made to cbs news saying my mom was a saint. such a tremendous loss of a wonderful human being, and the best mom a kid could ever hope for. >> our entire police department and all of our city leaders are devastated for everyone involved in this unimaginable event. >> reporter: nolton was reportedly shot several times. that's according to a photographer that was covering
7:16 am
nolton was active in the community. volunteering as a board member for her local library group. >> everyone involved is in a state of overwhelming shock and grief. >> reporter: the officer who fired those live rounds is on paid administrative leave this morning. one of the questions people want to know is why was a real gun being used in a fake situation? gale, i have to tell you in speaking with the police spokesman this morning, she conveyed to me that this is a really small community, and the la d everybody, including the police department who knew her personally. they say even for the law enforcement, it's a personal devastating loss. >> i'll say. her son describes her as a saint, but you raise a really good question? what was a live gun doing there? thank you, david. thousands of delta airline passengers face a third day of delays and cancellations after the carrier's computerer meltdown. the airline is still scrambling to rebook flights two days after
7:17 am

7:18 am
like he always has. >> phelps says let's hear it. look who is back on top in the 200 fly. >> reporter: the 31-year-old five-time olympian proves he still has plenty of gas in the tank, snatching gold in the 200 butterfly, and not even a scramble to replace a ripped swim cap could derail phelps. >> no way anybody is going to catch fiemichael phelps. record-setting gold medal haul which now stands at 21, michael phelps let the emotion of what would likely be a final olympics show. taking to the crowd to embrace his infant son and family. >> it's a -- >> reporter: the future of american swimming? that might be katie ledecky. the 19-year-old phenom from maryland won her second rio gold.

7:36 am
this is the first time they blocked ads that they have gone against the ad blocks. why is that? >> i don't know exactly why facebook has waited until now. they are dependent on advertising revenue the fact they are trying to counter the add ad blockers is surprising. you look at their recent fcc filings they have put in they are afraid that it is a threat to their business. the reason they are acting now presumably is, a, it's a big enough threat and enough users are using it they are losing substantial and, b, they think they can win. a c the ad blocking companies come back and change their code to make the ads disappear again. facebook thinks they are figured it out and can win. >> how do they do this? >> what they are doing on facebook is they basically feed the ads in the content on to the page in exactly the same way. the way ads software usually works it scans all of the stuff on a page and says that is an ad, that is a story. block the ad. facebook will strip away the identifying information from the
7:37 am
way. then the ad blockers can't tell% that is their strategy but the ad blocking teams say we will figure it out. >> the interesting point here is that the great contribution to facebook growth has come from ads on mobile devices? >> right. this is actually only on desktop. they are not worried about ad blocking software on mobile devices. this is just on desktops. one of the most interesting things that will happen now the war between publishers and ad supported websites and ad blocking software has been going on a while, right? so "wired" magazine say you can't access their site if you use an ad blocker. a battle is going on. now facebook has joined the side of the publishers which could change the dynamic of it. >> what about consumers who are tired of the ads? what about that? >> it's not hostility to the business model of publishers. ad cover the whole screen and
