7:07 am
about four or five days was that she had fallen. they kept saying she was not feeling well. they canceled a trip. they gave no details. she was diagnosed with a concussion on a thursday of that week. didn't come out until saturday, tell us about the concussion. then the blood clot later in the month. they said she wants to get back to work. she's making good progress. a month later, we see her with those glasses. and they did not disclose those glasses were for double somebody caught it by looking at the photograph. >> they made a big point at the time that she wasn't hospitalized. >> what happens is they bring the hospital to her. they do tests there. they had 24-hour nursing care. but they never, ever said what exactly was going on. >> as a doctor right now, you're seeing a lot of op eds by other doctors, about what obligation each candidate has to disclose. donald trump, 70.

7:09 am
their reaction to what happened. tom llamas is at trump head quarters in new york. somewhat the campaign saying about all of this? >> reporter: robin, good morning. minutes ago, donald trump weighed in on what has happened to hillary clinton. he said he hopes she feel better he doesn't know what was going on. he said she had the coughing fit a week ago. he hopes to see her at the debate. the trump campaign is focused on so over the weekend. she said half of trump's supporters are quote a basket of deplorables. the trump campaign is out with a new ad this morning. >> speaking to woelt thi doerns, hillary clinton called tens of millions of americans deplorable. >> you could put half of trump's supporters into what i call the basket of beploshdeplorables. the racist, sexist, islam
7:10 am
you, deplorable. >> reporter: now, the clinton campaign and clinton herself apologized. the next day, she said, quote, last night, i was grossly generalistic. that's never a good idea. i regret saying half. that was wrong. this is something the trump campaign is going to hone on this week. trump has called this very insulting and saying this will affect clinton in the polls. >> the trump campaign is likening this to mitt romney said in 2012, right? >> reporter: that's right. donald trump is calling this clinton's 47% moment. you'll remember that's that big gaffe mitt romney had in the 2012 campaign when he compared 47% of america saying they were dependent on government and they all felt like victims. people thought that cost romney the election. >> let's bring if jon karl and get more. let's start with the deplorable comment.
7:11 am
doing. putting that out in an ad. and hillary clinton's apology, not really an apology. she regretted using the word half but reinforced the message she was sending friday night in the statement she sent out. she's betting on the fact that this will not be her 47% comment. >> yeah, that was one of the great nonapology apologies to say she regretted using the word half. one of the ironclad rules politics is you can mock your opponent. you can maybe get away with calling your opponent names. but you don't mock the voters. that's what she's done. and the danger for her is she's just given a big motivator to trump voters. right now, trump vote rrs more energized, more motivated than hillary clinton voters. also, independents don't like the name-calling either the. >> right now, his supporters much more enthusiastic. it shows the honest and
7:12 am
historic lows for both. 35% for hillary clinton, 31% for donald trump. she didn't help herself yesterday. >> not at all, george. i mean this is her biggest vulnerability as a presidential candidate. that voters simply do not trust her. those are remarkable numbers for both candidates. you have roughly a third saying they trust her. t two-thirds suggesting not. she feels, what can you trust her about? this was borderline deception. they said she was overheated. she was feeling fine. then you find out she was diagnosed with pneumonia. >> what do you make of the argument that she's held to a double standard? she puts out much more information than donald trump. he has a four paragraph letter. she puts out ten years of tax returns.
7:13 am
yes, this may be an issue, but you all are not covering the other side. >> it's a good point. donald trump had a letter from his doctor. a doctor not necessarily qualified to make the assessment. it was frankly a joke of a letter. it said he would be the most healthy robust president we have ever had. he's not submitted to this. he would be the oldest newly elected president in american history. this is about her. what happened yesterday is about her. >> no question thank you, jon karl. >> and thank you martha and rich. the t ball against the zika virus making headlines. miami beach's mayor warns the threat the growing. residents are concerned about the chemicals used to fight mosquitos. gio benitez is on the scene. >> reporter: hey, robin. good morning to you. i gotta tell you some residents are furious. they worry this spray is toxic. in fact in parts of south

7:15 am
keys for a number of years. >> reporter: as the fight against the disease intensifies, the cdc now warning the money needed to fight zika in florida and across the country is drying up. >> zika is spreading. by tend of this month, we'll be out of money to respond effectively. >> reporter: and because of all of this spraying, we're told that some parents actually kept their children home from school on friday. clearly, this is a huge issue here, george. >> boy, it sure is. thank you very much. now to the of samsung galaxy note 7. urging people with the smartphone to shut it off, return it immediately. linzie janis is here with the details. this after scary new reports of the battery exloading. >> reporter: samsung is stepping up its recall, asking owners of the note 7 to take immediate action to protect themselves. >> the all-new samsung galaxy note 7. >> reporter: this morning, an

think about that day, how tragic it was for all of us as americans. at the same time, it brought us together. on that fateful day, it wasn't black, it wasn't white. we were all americans. standing as one with somebody elsewhere attacking us as a nation. the seahawks in particular, that team in particular wanted to remind the world that we're all one. we're all supposed to be about being together. it's about -- it's be about togetherness. that was the message they wanted to send, particularly on a day like yesterday. i thought they succeeded. >> a lot of what you saw at the football stadiums just really, oh, gosh. it was quite a moment. that one h particular linking arms, standing together. what about the protests, though, the kneeling, the raising of the fists? your reaction to that? >> you think about it. don't just think about the star spangled banner. the pledge of allegiance.
7:36 am
united states of america. indivisible. for liberty and justice for all. you see colin kaepernick and others stepping up, kneeling, raising a fist. what they're saying is that, you know, it's supposed to be about justice for all and that simply is not the case when it comes to a lot of african-americans in this country. history shows that. it's undeniable. they're saying that in spite of everything that's going on and in spite of our willingness all be together, this flagrant ineptitude, unfairness taking lace in this nation, it has to be addressed. it can't be forgotten in the throws throes of all of this going on. we live in great country that is beneficial to all of us. at is tamame time thhe same thy issues that need to be

>> there have been consequences as we heard in kayna's report. brandon marshall losing one of his sponsors. and you say, that is sending the wrong message. you believe that? >> i absolutely believe that pip think it reex of hypocrisy. if america is about everybody, if it's about the land of the free and the home for the brave, it's about freedom of speech in the first amendment of our constitution, how are you going punish a guy for expressing himself when he didn't harm anybody. he didn't on. the games were still played et cetera. it show that when they say, you have freedoms, once again, you don't necessarily have that. you lost an endorsement deal. that's somebody saying, we don't want you to be a part of us. it's un-american as far as i'm concerned. you're asking him to quell his speech, his rights as a u.s. citizen. i thought it reeked of hypocrisy. >> before you go. jesse is sitting here as well.
7:38 am
to talk about the saints. that breaks my heart. >> i would continue to that to you. >> a lot of close game. what about what we saw with tom brady and his beautiful wife, gisele. what do you make of that? >> first of all, he has his wife at home with him. she's there. he's his ultimate supporter. and cue does to her. we all know what is coming. tom brady will come back after the fourth game. he'll come back with he's going to wreak havoc on everybody. the patriots were the only team within the division that won. it's a prelude to what is to come. the new england patriots will win the division yet again. >> you have some chuckles here from george. >> wreak havoc. >> life is good for tom brady. beautiful wife. throw on the lawn.
7:39 am
and your team is winning without you on the field. >> didn't he fill in for drew bledsoe? >> yeah, and won a super bowl. that's not going to happen. tom brady. >> we're not starting a troe in controversy. he's just fine. coming up on the big board, greta van susteren is speaking out. an alarming report about parents medical mistakes with

7:42 am
and she went after gretchen carson. calling her a disgruntled employee. for greta to now come forward and say, i didn't mean to defend him. i regret it, et cetera. that's part of it. what about the part where you were attacking gretchen carlson? i think a more full and complete apology is needed to turn tides here. >> she said on facebook, i regret roger ailes was not supervised by those in a public corporation who had the duty to supervise him. will these comments affect ongoing litigation? >> greta is a friend of mine. i have enormous respect for her. >> i do, too. >> the bottom line is to suggest she didn't know roger ailes had almost complete autonomy at fox
7:43 am
had almost complete autonomy to do what he wanted there. and she made comment after comment after comment supporting him, not just saying something like, you know what, i worked with him. he was always professional. i never saw anything like that. she went much further than that in her comments. it's a little bit tough for her to have it both ways. if she does end up in litigation with fox, a lot of the old statements will come back to haunt her. >> isn't her husband a >> he is. a prominent lawyer. i think he's probably leading the charge on the legal front. >> thank you, dan. now to the concerning new report about parents' medical mistakes. the american academy of pediatrics putting 2100 parents to the test. finding more than 80% of them made at least one dosing error measuring liquid medication. jen, when you see these numbers,
7:44 am
researchers discover 68% of the time the errors would have led to an overdose. this is startling information. >> absolutely, robin. and here's the actual study. it occurred in the premier journal of pediatrics. we have heard there are issues with dosing. particularly liquid medications for kids because they come mostly in that liquid form. so this studty really sought to further define the labeling and the the dosing. and to some do we need labels in spanish? do parents understand decimal points and million -- million litters. 68% made overdosing errors. this is a wakeup call. this could be a life or death situation. >> what can parents do to get it right? >> i think the first thing, ask, ask, ask, ask your pediatrician.
7:45 am
understand what the correct dose for your child is. ask to see it. ask them to show you. the visual is key. the visual on the syringes. keep a med record. that's what we do in the hospital. thank you, jen. move to a big week for uber. looks like they're set to debut self-driving cars in pittsburgh. becky worley is here with more. people saying it's way too soon. >> robots are coming, ah! uh, yeah. the idea of an autonomous driving freaking people out a little bit. let's break this down. three weeks ago, uber announcing self-driving cars would be coming to pittsburgh. the times now reporting that the rollout is imminent. the idea of 100 autonomous vehicles cruising the city.
7:46 am
no rout notificationotification. and the major, bill peduto saying you can put up red tape or roll out the red carpet. i think this is worth hitting the brax. this is not 100 robotic cars roaming mis iing pittsburgh. >> who things this is a good idea? >> not for me. >> i mean, i have had -- >> you have you're our tech person. >> for some of them, i'm perfectly happy to have no driver at all. >> i'm too much of a control freak. >> i would get behind the wheel. >> most of them have been good. >> your rating just went down. >> thank you to our insiders. coming up, there she is. miss america. arkansas' savvy shield. the thing that has everyone talking. the judges. we'll tell you why in just two minutes. come on back. pro golfer. ,
