pennsylvania, illinois. they are saying it has to be separated. they want you to be the nominee but you really need to speak differently. it is difficult for them because n they believe where there are big military families that this is something in a long list of things that trump has said, that this is something that perhaps goes too far. this is about a family bh hwho lost a son. >> all right. thanks. hillary clinton also weighed in on the trump-kahn controversy. take a look. >> to launch an attack as he did on captain kahn's mother, i
don't know where the bottom. >> it. >> it lead ts in a poll 46-49 points. kristen, how good of a bounce is it? ed said maybe it should get one or two points. >> sit a bounce so the clinton campaign feels good about it. they are expecting this this we she did get a small bounce. it is moderate. what could be more significant is that we are seeing polling that shes secretary clinton in a small lead in 11 key battleground states. this is a kwey that will be
fought in the battleground states. so those are the state ts that the clinton campaign will be focused on. you talked about the kahn controversy. the question is will it be different. as you pointed out, secretary clinton pounced on that over the weekend. i think you can anticipate that will come in the coming days. >> thank you. one more political note. donald trump going after the california springs fire department. i was never for about 30 minutes. the fire department rescued anymore and about ten other people. he sides sized. donald trump never sort hoff om
men ta -- this type of balloon may have been involved in one other accident and we are getting pictures of the moment just before it crashed. janet is folg this story for -- following this story for us in lockhart, texas. >> reporter: it that has yielded a lot of information including that the balloon did strike the power lines here. the brightly color part of the plan was found about 3 miles away. the pilot did have all of the proper certifications and the balloon had the proper checks and certifications as well. ntsb will be identifying them
later today. it will greet the people after they land. the balloon only traveled 8 miles from an air park to this location. they don't know whether it ga gained the necessary height that it needed to. they are hoping to wield more information from the cell phones, maybe get pictures or videos off of them that will tell them more about what happened. speaking of the personal property, we are hearing about the hat break stories. ynd thes it was the flight up until 12 minutes before this balloon crashed. a mother had become a mother herself recently and had given
her mother a gift certificate for this flight. authorities say it will take a long time to y ifs back to you! nn et. thanks. >> next, a former secretary of defense weighing in on the must lick shoulder. plus look at that epic flash flooding in maryland. we'll take you to the area that has been declared a stilt state of emergency. r in real time to help those that need it.

(vonutritional needs... dog's all in one. purina one. healthy energy, and a taste he loves. purina one smartblend is expertly blended... with always real meat #1. all in one. purina one. hey kevin. hey, fancy seeing you here. uh, i live right over there actually. you've been to my place. no, i wasn't...oh look, you dropped something. it's your resume with a 20 dollar bill taped to it. that's weird. you want to work for ge too. hahaha, what? well we're always looking for developers who are up for big world changing challenges like making planes, trains and hospitals run better. why don't you check your new watch and tell me what time i should be there. oh, i don't hire people. i'm a developer. i'm gonna need monday off. again, not my call. the search for relief often leads to this. introducing drug-free aleve direct therapy.
a high intensity tens device that uses technology once only in doctors' offices. for deep penetrating relief at the source. new aleve direct therapy. built a sandcastle?id? ha, no, i switched to geico and got more. more? 24/7 access online, on the phone or with the geico app. that is more. go get some mud... all that "more" has to be why they're the second-largest auto insurer. everybody likes more. mhm, i think so. geico. expect great savings and a whole lot more.
frame it around the fight against terrorism. joining me now is william kohen. he served in the house and senate. good morning, secretary. before we start, how do you endorse to -- have you endorsed a candidate? >> no. >> well, you have comforted many gold-star families that lost their children in war. what is your initial reaction to what donald trump has said reacting to the kahns? >> i found the statements app l appalling. this is a young man who rushed into annihilation. he rushed into the fires of annihilation, much like the first responders in 9/11. the firemen and policemen rushed into the burning towers. captain kahn knew he was facing
anigh lie annihilation and he did it to support his troops. it is a mark of great heroism. sit something i had hoped mr. trump accepted the criticism levelled at him and responded in a fashion to say i'm sorry for your loss. your son was a hero. i did not mean in any way to demean his patriotism. your son was a hero and there are many others who are heros defending this country. that's the kind of comment i want today hear. >> well, you didn't get that. she ba he is saying it is rad dical
islam. where do you stand as a republican in that this is your party's candidate? >> it is not only this particular issue. let me be clear, john mccain is my friend. i was his best man in his wedding. he spent nearly six years in a prison in north korea -- i'm sorry, north vietnam. six years, much of it in solitary confinement. most of the days he was beaten and beaten severely. he was given an opportunity to leave ahead of his other p.o.w.'s because his father was bombing north vietnam. he said no. i will stay here and receive these beatings. i will not leave before they leave. that to me is a hero.
mr. trump said he country like people to get shot down. it is respect for people who wear the uniform and heros in the minds of millions of american people. >> and john mccain is not a presidential candidate. donald trump is. does his comments, in your mind, disqualify him? >> i would say the way which he handled this particular issue is demeaning to mr. kahn and to mrs. kahn for her silence. that he has yet to demonstrate. i have been waiting to see that and i have yet to see it. i think the american people will have to pass judgment on that. >> and mr. trump also spoke about putin's involvement. here is what he said.
>> he is not going into ukraine. he is not going to go into you cl crane. you can mark it down. >> he is already there isn't he? >> i'm not there. you have obama there. >> that's what he said already this morning. he sort of backtracked it via twitter. he said when i said he is not going into ukraine you can mark it down. basically when i'm president president putin isn't going to go any further. do you think he understanding what's happening in that region? >> i have no way of knowing that. he should have known it was a part of ukraine that was taken by president putin. he is there destabilizing that
country. it is pretty basic to understand what president putinhas h has d. he called him a strong leader. i would call john mccain a strong leader. i would call captain kahn a strong leader but not celebrate the slengt of president putin. >> and as you mentioned earlier back in february you thought when and if donald trump was faced with a general election he would be shifting, changing his tone as it relates to foreign policy. you mentioned you're not seeing that yet. if you don't see it soon what will you do? >> well, i'll have a choice to
make like many other americans. right now i have not seen any demonstrations of presidential tenure and temperament and base k knowledge about what it means to run a country as great as the united states of america. i think there's a long way to go but right now i would say very little evidence that mr. trump has either the background, interest or basic sense of understanding the world and how it works and also a decent respect for those who have served. i mentioned mccain before. there are others. a hero was captured during the second world war. just because people get captured doesn't mean they aren't heros and not worthy of praise. i think secretary of defense i went out, my wife went with me
on most occasions, to meet with heros who are out on the front lines risking their lives every second of the day to defend this country and for donald trump or anyone else to say on a broad brush that anyone of a muslim faith is an inscipient terroris. that is something that is un-american. we ought not to be doing that or saying that. we ought to -- in fact i wish mr. trump would call the kahns and say i'm sorry. your son was a hero. any way i can pay tribute to him then i will. >> if you're saying his actions seem to be un-american are you hopeful or how hopeful are you that he'll turn it around?
>> i think we have to look at words. we have to look at what the naked thoughts are coming out and the flesh they are being wrapped in, the voice of anger, the voice of violence. when we accuse mexican of being ra rapist, accuse the chinese of raping our people. when you continue to use words that are violent in nature you'll get more violence. i think we have to take great care in the words we use and how we express ourselves in order to lead this great country. so much will have to be done to surely satisfy me but not just me but the millions who will be voting in november. >> thank you for sharing your thoughts with us. before we if get a break look at this video. citizens bantding together to help save each other as epic

ripped off. at one point you could see a river running under where a store front had hit. there were people eating in restaurants when all of a sudden flood watt ergs started washing down main street. at one point you could actually see a woman trapped in a car as the flood waters were rushing down the street. five people formed a human chain to rescue her from this car. it was probably the most amazing thing that i have ever seen. there is still a lot of work to be done here as you can imagine in coming days and weeks. >> all right. thanks for joining us this morning. when we come back the latest donald trump controversy not dying down. the family of the muslim american soldier blasting donald trump. this morning a muslim american activist join me next. look at this video. can you believe the driver survived this crash?

>> we have to break this down. joining me now is dean, a muslim comme commenta commenta commentator. i want to share a bit of this. take a look. >> i cannot emphasize enough how deeply i disagree with trump's statement. it is not accompanied by unfettered license to defame those who are the best among us. that's a wow. >> let's start with a statement that donald trump and the trump campaign made. the trump campaign and all of america, i have the utmost respect for kahn. >> we got it. that's an official statement. let's get real. let's talk about what donald trump is saying and doubling down. >> which is what? he said mr. kahn is using
personal insults against him? he is using personal insults against him. he was waving the constitution saying he hasn't read the constitution. he doesn't know that. he has no idea what mr. trump has or has not read. he has read the constitution! so he has read the constitution or not, is it appropriate as someone who is potentially going to be commander in chief to be going after -- >> he is not going after mrs. kahn. mr. kahn said he was a black soul. if i said hillary clinton has a black soul this building might erupt. that is a ridiculous personal attack. now we expect donald trump to sit by and not respond? as far as what he said about mrs. kahn, he was asked.
it was on observation he made. he has the utmost respect for captain kahn and for his parents. >> i ask you, as a muslim american, he said maybe she wasn't allowed to speak. is it being biassed? >> absolutely. surrogates have said they are's he was asked what is your response to the statement? he didn't say i feel for the kahn family. he went after the mother twice. only who people have gone aver the kahns, isis and donald trump. he didn't have the courage. >> so with a lot of propaganda.
we need to be we need to talk about why he is no longer with his parents. >> why he is no longer with us? he is a soldier who washed -- >> we need to protect our country and our soldiers, not farcing semantics. sam who is part of the trump team came out as a member saying we should honor all gold car families? do you blee mr. has than nored him! it is specific questions that he made an seb seat belt vags.
>> he honored captain kahn. we need to talk about how they would love to keep talking about this. we need to talk about -- >> hold on a second. without a doubt but donald trump continue to talk about this, correct? >> what we should be talking about, the biggest effect here is the spread of radical islamists. that's what voters worry about and care about. >> did the effort from saying things -- >> we'll be there in a moment. >> he told donald, i will cry when i see his pictures. do you want a man like that who would mock a gold-star mother?
that is for people to decide. >> are you going to -- you're biassed to begin with. >> okay. all right. >> i believe in the -- >> you want to -- >> and the big point, the family was there not to attack donald trump. it was to push back the anti-muslim rhetoric and to make the moint that muslims -- >> let's be honest here. >> you think the kahns were there to give a bipartisan speech? >> that is fair. clearly they are at the dnc for a reason. over the weekend mr. trump cam paired sas ficrifices. he said i created tens of thousands of jobs. sacrificing was light for their country towards, you know, building a business. >> let's be fair. that was a response to a direct
question, what have you sacrifices been? >> having family members die tragically is not a prerequisite. none of the clintons have served in the military. >> it is something he has given to this country. it is fair -- >> it is unbelievable -- >> of course is -- >> he is not. >> that's not a fair compariso . >> he belittled john mccain. he mocked the man -- my personal advice was not hooking up as a

cloudy today. >> i couldn't hear all of that but if you look at the electronic devices ipad can be an aid to-and-a-ha navigation. we are going to try to look at the big picture and see just exactly what was going on in this particular flight. we want to learn from this. >> we want to learn from this. right now going to ward, for people watching possibly thinking about hot air ballooning, is it safe? >> it is certainly a great way to enjoy an early morning or evening. i think any time we defy gravity we increase our risk. there is the possibility that something like this could happen. one accident is unacceptable and we want to keep these from happening again! thank you for your work.

yellers, the people who try toin dim date you. you know what we call a person like that in pittsburgh? a jagoff! is there any bigger jagoff in the world than donald trump? >> wow, there you go. all right, mark cuban, the billionaire businessman, endorsed hillary clinton and slammed donald trump over the weekend. one of the co stars on the hit show, "shark tank".
chairman of o shares etf. what do you make of what mark cuban had to say? he's a pretty independent guy. >> look, mark, as we all know from watching "shark tank," is a opinionated billionaire and is widely open in letting you know what that opinion is all of the time. and i think if you -- this election cycle is -- every election is different. but this one is unique, given the power that social media has had on it so early on in the cycle. normally, you and i would be having this conversation in october. and here we are in the dead of summer, discussing the outcomes of all kinds of comments being made by lots of people about trump. it's very, very divisive now, obviously. >> okay -- >> and social media matters. >> you're a guy with a lot of opinions too. do you agree with what mark cuban said? is. >> i don't look at it that way. i don't pick sides.
>> hold on a second. back in february, you predicted that donald trump would be the president, and you said stocks would go straight up. so you do give opinions. >> no, i think here's what's going to happen, okay? in the next six to eight weeks, we're finally going to get some policy from both parties. like mark cuban, and i think mark would agree with me when i say this, we care a lot about our businesses. we care about the hundreds of companies that we have invested in. i want what's best for them. for entrepreneurs. that's where we get all of our jobs in america. so tell me what the tax policy is going to be. so far, all we're talking about is what's going on in russia or what somebody said about the military. i haven't heard any discussion about tax policy from either clinton or from trump's party. i haven't heard anything about supporting entrepreneurs with less regulation. >> then -- >> and frankly, from what i have heard, i would say, a 15% corporate tax and a 10%
repatriation tax coming out of larry kudlow's mouth, who is supporting and helping trump develop policy, that's interesting to me. so i'm not going to say that today trump has the best candidacy for entrepreneurs. if you tell me that's the policy and firm it up, then i'll give the endorsement. >> you're canadian, so in a different position. what about the fact that warren buffett backing hillary clinton and mike bloomberg and mark cuban, three very successful guys who do know and care a lot about business? >> that's fair to say. and i am canadian. but i'm also irish, and my kids are born in the united states, i made all of my money in the united states and i call boston the place i created that wealth. i care what happens. i really do. i have no problem with buffett saying wants to pay more tax. that's a personal decision. i have never heard it to be a good idea for you to raise taxes when you have a no-growth economy. ever. of that's never been a good idea regarding your politics,
regarding which party you support. raising taxes in a no-growth environment seems a dumb idea to me. if that's the platform for either candidate, i would rather have the other one. sorry, that's what i think. >> but if the other one -- neither candidate has that as part of your platform, you're going to be, what, a gary johnson guy? >> no, listen. i think at the end of the day, two things determine who becomes president of the united states. every american wants the same two things. they want security and they want a job. so in the next 100 days, all of the rest of this rhetoric and noise is going to fall by the waysi wayside while the two candidates that have the highest probability of leading the country tell us how they're going to fix those two things. the things that matter to you and me, and every other american. can you keep me safe, and can you get me a job? and after we have listened to both of them, we're going to make our decision. and whoever can solve those two is going to become president of the united states. end of story. >> sounds like six to eight
weeks from now, we need to have this conversation again, kevin. >> and i'm ready for it, any time. thank you. thanks for joining me this morning, kevin o'leary. i want you to please look at this video. this man, right here, skydiving without -- yep, that's right. turn up the volume. without a parachute. so how did he elanhowland. that story next. g for ways to manage my symptoms. i thought i had it covered. then i realized managing was all i was doing. when i finally told my doctor, he said humira was for people like me who have tried other medications,... but still experience the symptoms of moderate to severe crohn's disease. in clinical studies, the majority of patients on humira saw significant symptom relief... ...and many achieved remission. humira can lower your ability to fight infections... ...including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers,... including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions,... ...and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb.
