tv   The Kelly File  FOX News  August 5, 2015 6:00pm-7:01pm PDT

6:00 pm
tomorrow night. we will have predebate coverage. thanks again for watching us tonight. ms. megyn is next. breaking tonight, the biggest event to date in campaign 2016 is now just 24 hours away and at the center of the political universe is a battle ground state of ohio. welcome to "the kelly file" i'm megyn kelly reporting live from cleveland. by this time tomorrow night the top ten republican presidential contenders will be going head to head for the first time in a debate right here. before this arena is filled, before the first question is asked and i assure you it has been drafted, we are hearing that this debate will have an impact on the white house race like few before it ever have and the reason in two words, donald
6:01 pm
trump. joining me now the former white house deputy press secretary under president obama, howard kirk, host of media buzz and our fox news digital politics editor. thank you for being here. >> thank you. >> the debate questions have been formulated. and they are -- it's not time for that. tomorrow. >> starting now. >> let me start with you. donald trump, everybody says it is a donald trump debate. i don't know. >> he obviously has some decisions to make about what message he wants to have. i think too much is put into this because of two things. what drives this debate are these questions. the questions that you and brett and chris are asking is going to be what drives the debate. these are tasmanian devil questions. these are tough. he spun around and stuff. but the point is these questions
6:02 pm
are what the candidates should be worried about not this one liner with donald trump. they should be worried about answering the questions. there are guys who are tough debaters. ted cruz is up there. mike huckabee is up there. they are ink thing only about trump they are going to get -- >> something else people don't think about is we as the debate team our charge is to keep equal time among candidates and we made a promise to try to do that. if it is spinning out of control and one candidate is getting tons of time we have to cut that off and move to other candidates. it won't happen that trump has 30 minutes and somebody else has ten. >> good luck cutting trump off. >> you know i can do it. you know i can do it. let me ask you because you have been hearing different messaging. >> here is the news flash, donald trump is toning it down. he hasn't taken a whack at anybody's head in a week. he is such a dominant front
6:03 pm
runner that he realizes he doesn't need to be hurling out insults. everybody is tuning in to this arena they want to see if he is a wildman or does he seem reasonable. >> he is dialing it back. he hated chuck todd. he said charles krauthammer was a clown and more on. we remember what was said a couple weeks ago. >> this is the sign of a guy who went from outside agitator to a plausible nominee. there is no point anymore. he will punch back but no point in ridiculing individual journalists. >> and it seems like the guys on the debate stage saying i won't cut you if you don't cut me. i will cut you if you cut me first. as a person who actually works with the man who is now our president, you were there, you were with him while they were
6:04 pm
getting him ready. you guys were all getting ready for a night like tomorrow night. what do you think is going on behind the scenes and how high do you think they view the stakes? >> i think this debate is one of the most important primary debates that we have seen. people haven't anticipated a debate like this ever. even when you look back to '07 and '08 when president obama was running there will be moments that happened along the way where people would want to see how the candidates respond in the debate setting but nothing like this where donald trump is changing the whole thing. right now you have a bunch of aides who are scared out of their minds that their candidate is going to do something that will cause massive problems for them. nobody is out there thinking i can't wait until tomorrow because my guy is going to clean their clock. >> how do you think the support teams watch the debate? do they go to a private room and nail biting? what? >> people sit and watch it and it is a little different because twitter is so much more important than it was in 2007. they are also engaging.
6:05 pm
they have the whole media team. i want to go back to something that chris said. i don't think they are worried about the questions so much because they are going to say what they say. the good questions are not scripted. it happens in the exchange. >> you never had to do a fox news debate. so the point here isn't to -- if i may -- the point here is that these questions are designed to not let them off the hook. there has to be an affirmative thing. >> a laser like focus. >> you have to answer something in these questions. they are designed to say i know what you said about this but what about that? >> the dodge and lead will be readily apparent if they choose to go that route. the question is whether this is actually not to be too grandiose about it because fox news is moderating it but does it have the potential to change the course of history?
6:06 pm
one of these guys could be out by 11:00 tomorrow night? >> i don't think it will change the course of civilization. >> the republicans decided they want to wait to start their nominating process because they thought it was too long and beat up mitt romney and got into the general election and then loss. they freighted this debate because now there is no iowa straw poll. the stage is crowded. the stakes are high. they are worried about trump. hillary clinton showing vulnerability. it is a pretty big deal. >> the reason i talk about moments is you will have the huge audience tomorrow night and then the media echo and ten candidates are not going to get sound bytes that replay segment after segment. so there will be trump and maybe jeb and marco or somebody else. that is why the other candidates are hoping for some kind of moment where it doesn't have to
6:07 pm
be a zinger but something memorable. >> i think it will be very hard to tell who won it. i think you will find out in the days that follow. if you think back to the south carolina debate in 2007 when president obama said he would speak with ahmadinejad if it would help. i was on a conference call with the president the next day and he was like i'm not backing down from that and if that is what we need to do. we fought the fight and won the public opinion battle on that. >> i remember that. >> the thing if you ask me and i could be wrong, i feel like the front runners other than trump because he is going to be himself. he said he is not really preparing and will be himself. some articles say the policy debate for trump. he is going to say i am who i am
6:08 pm
and i am ticked off and here is why. you think of jeb bush and scott walker and guys who are along the top think they could get it if trump collapses. they have a lot to lose. jeb bush did not get good reviews from his performance in new hampshire on monday night. i think the expectations for someone like jeb bush is pretty high. he should be able to rock it. if he doesn't could we see a champion -- >> one thing i love most about americans is that they don't spend as much time thinking about politic as we do. they live their normal lives and do decent things instead of think about what politicians say all the time. these debates are moments when decent ordinary people tune in and say i have a civic duty and have to pay attention to what these chuckle heads in politics are doing. jeb bush flash card yes or no? do i like this guy or not like this guy? >> in a moment that your impression could be formed or
6:09 pm
collapsed one wrong word, a look of uncertainty, a dodge when you are asked a direct question. >> there is such a thing. >> there is such a thing as expectation. people who don't follow politics will have a certain expectation of a jeb bush, scott walker, sitting governor as donald trump they have heard so much about it. he has a low bar to clear. >> i have to go but i can't go without asking you as a democrat is there anybody on the stage tomorrow night who you are a little worried about? >> i would say because donald trump is in the race he kept people from rising up, people like john kasich who is not given a fair shot in the media. if you look at somebody who is a popular governor in this state, he hasn't been given a lot of oxygen. tonight in his hometown arena it could be interesting. >> you like having trump in this debate? >> very much. >> we like it, too. great to see you all. thank you very much.
6:10 pm

6:13 pm
this election cannot be like the other ones. we do not live in ordinary times. the world is changing and so must our policies. >> that was florida senator marco rubio hours ago in cleveland in town for tomorrow night's gop debate. following his campaign launch in april he saw strong poll numbers in the weeks to follow. in recent weeks those numbers have dipped leaving some political media outlets wondering if the senator has a problem on his hands. joining me tonight florida
6:14 pm
senator marco rubio. they are wondering whether your message of optimism and hope is not connecting with the voters. they are saying you need to connect more with people's anger. >> obviously there are things wrong in this country. we have to acknowledge it. this is a great country. it can be greater. we need a country that full fills its potential and we are not. so my message has been that way for 10 to 12 years. >> do you think that is what is happening with trump? >> i'm not a pundant. i'm a candidate. i'm running for office. i can tell people my message, who i am and what i would do if elected and people get to decide. half the country is on vacation literally. this is just the ups and down. >> just the half that support you? >> these polls go up and down.
6:15 pm
i have been higher and lower than those numbers. i am more concerned about whether we are being consistent in our message helping people understand who i am and why i'm running. that is what is important. >> talk about the money. one of the things they say may be problematic is you raised a total of about 45 million so far and jeb bush raised 114 million. that is important in politics. >> it is. the question is not how much you raise but do you raise enough to communicate your message? we are not going to be the leading fundraiser in this race. we understood that going in. >> trump is on tv every night. >> these campaigns are long journeys. there are going to be ups and downs. tomorrow night is a big night. a lot of people will tune in to this campaign and after tomorrow night other debates and twists and turns in the road. i'm not worried about one day, one week or one month. >> how are you preparing now?
6:16 pm
>> when you have been involved in the issues of the day debating those and also answering these questions for a while -- >> you haven't been answering the questions. >> the topics i think have been talked about for a while. a real advantage is you know what you believe and talk about it in the past it is easier to communicate. >> are you going to dodge and weave? >> i hope not. i like to answer questions. i think people deserve it. we are choosing the president of the united states. it is the most important political job in the world and is going to get. iny and >> you are only human. >> i have never done this before. i have never run for president. this is a big stage. i wouldn't call it nerves. i think there is an excitement about being part of something like this. >> we have nerves as moderators. we have the questions written down. we know what they are. you have the hard job. >> i wouldn't say nerves in terms of fear but certainly nerves in terms of understanding
6:17 pm
this is a pretty big deal that you get to talk to the country about its future. very few americans get a chance to do what the ten of us and the others on the stage tomorrow are going to do. that's a pretty exciting opportunity. >> you want to deliver your message. what is the one thing you want people to take away about marco rubio? >> i have a debt to this country i will never repay. it literally changed the history of my family. the reason why i am in public service and running for president is i want this to continue to be a country where people can do for their children what they parents did for me giving a chance to do things they couldn't do. i want this to continue to be that kind of country. >> i hope i didn't steal your closing statement for tomorrow. >> i have said it so many times before. >> let me hear it tomorrow night at about 11:00. >> see you tomorrow. the fox news gop primary debate begins at 9:00 eastern

6:22 pm
revelations from the fbi investigation into hillary clinton's e-mail scandal as major new questions arise about her private server and an alleged whopper she appears to have told about classified information. let's start with the server. in march of this year mrs. clinton claimed there was no issue in maintaining government e-mails on a private e-mail server home in new york and this server she said was set up for president bill clinton under the watch of the secret service. there are big advantages. listen. >> the system we use was set up for president clinton's office and it had numerous safe guards. it was on property guarded by the secret service and there were no security breaches. so i think that the use of that server was started with my
6:23 pm
husband certainly proved to be effective and secure. >> but now it turns out her e-mails, that is our e-mails were not maintained by the state department or on bill clinton's server but were on an entirely different server. one established for her 2008 campaign which was not disclosed and it was reportedly set up and handled by staffers with limited training and handed off to an outside company. on top of that mrs. clinton repeatedly maintained there is nothing to this e-mail scandal because she never dealt with classified information there, period end of report. listen. >> i did not e-mail any classified material to anyone on my e-mail. there is no classified material. so i certainly am well aware of the classification requirements and did not send classified
6:24 pm
material. >> there is no classified material. well, then the news broke that inspectors generals believed she did improperly maintain classified information. what did she do in response to th th that allegation? she doubled down. >> i am confident i never sent information classified at the time it was sent and received. >> i never sent classified information. and then a federal judge issued an order demanding that mrs. clinton tell her e-mail story under oath and guess what just happened. late last night mrs. clinton's team changed its story. now it's no longer there was no classified information. now it's mrs. clinton had no documents that were, quote, marked classified at the time. joining me now robert zimmerman
6:25 pm
democratic committee member from new york. robert, good to see you. >> good to be with you. >> come on. >> megyn, i have a bigger blockbuster for you. the washington post reported today there is no investigation. there are no allegations of wrong doing and hillary clinton is not the subject of a probe because everything that she said then checks out now. that's the real story here. >> how does that explain the many stories i just took the audience through? >> the inspector generals said there were no classified markings on the e-mails that she sent or received. it may have happened after the fact but that doesn't change the truth that she wasn't sending or receiving e-mails. >> but they are investigating to see whether classified information was in her possession and is on the server.
6:26 pm
and she has been telling us all along there is no classified information until she changed. >> that's the point, though. how would she know it is classified? that is why the inspector generals made the point that there was no information that was marked classified on her server? >> how the inspector generals figured it out? >> they investigated it. when it comes to the server the server was in the president's home. >> you can avoid all of this if you do your e-mailing on the server. she told us this is secured. now i'm married to the former president and as it turns out it was some dude who set up the server who isn't exactly -- he is is not exactly a security expert but helped research two --
6:27 pm
>> in just april of 2009 a specialist for the state department took over the server and managed it. so it was secure and safe and there were no breaches. i have a question for you. i assume you are going to ask jeb bush the same questions because as governor of florida he used a personal server to discuss net security with nuclear power plants and took the server home with him and selectively released government e-mails. >> that sounds like look at this shiny and pretty over here. i am talking to you about hillary. >> i am trying to help you with tomorrow night. >> why does the story change -- i know you have my best interest at heart. why does the story keep changing? if you tell the truth from the beginning you don't have to worry about keeping the story. >> megyn, the fact of the matter shows hillary clinton was accurate, consistent and correct. ultimately the tragedy for republicans is they have no story here and they have to talk
6:28 pm
about issues. i know you will make them do that tomorrow night. >> so good to see you. >> i will be cheering you on tomorrow. >> all the best. the pressure is on with less than 24 hours to go before tomorrow night's big debate in cleveland. i think we are taking the first break around here at this time tomorrow night so a full half hour into the debate. and dana perino is here with her advice to the candidates and the lessons they can learn from historic stumbles and successes we have seen. why did president obama today compare republicans to the terror supporting hard liners within the iranian regime? remember the promises of hope and change? charles krauthammer is next with an answer. >> just because iranian hard liners chant death to america does not mean that is what all iranians believe. ody of proof. proof of less joint pain. and clearer skin. this is my body of proof that i can fight psoriatic arthritis

6:32 pm
i will say this, that the reason i have gotten better is that i can bring this country together i think in a unique way across divisions of race, religion, region and that is what is going to be required in order for us to actually deliver on the issues. >> that was back in 2008 when then senator barack obama stood on the stage vying for the presidency promising to be a different kind of leader, one who would bring the country together. after more than six years it's clear it has not happened. despite that the president still drew a stunned reaction from conservatives today when he compared republicans raising questions about the iran deal to the terror supporter hard liners within the iranian regime. watch. >> just because iranian hard liners chant death to america
6:33 pm
does not mean that is what all iranians believe. in fact, it's those -- it's those hard liners who are most comfortable with the status quo. it's those hard liners chanting death to america who have been most opposed to the deal. they are making common cause with the republican caucus. >> charles krauthammer is a fox news contributor and author of "things that matter." good to see you. how about that? >> i mean, it's vintage obama demonization of his opponent, the lumping them together with people chanting death to america is a new low for the president considering how he does demonize the opposition.
6:34 pm
but what is even worse is how delusional he is. he is pretending that those who chant death to america are some kind of kkk fringe in iran. the people leading the chant of the revolutionary of course as he always calls them, obama does, the supreme leader himself in a speech a few days after the signing of the agreement the chants break out death to america, death to israel and the ayatola said may allah hear your prayers. the idea he is strengthening the moderate is absurd. he made removing the sanctions, by giving them a clear path to a bomb and arsenal of bombs in ten years and not just a path, but in ten years
6:35 pm
they will have an arsenal that will be legitimated and considered perfectly okay. he is the one who will be giving tens of billions of dollars to the hard liners meaning the government which will be used for activities for expanding the influence. and one more point -- when the moderates were out in the streets the students demonstrating against the regime in 2009 specifically the people he said that the conservatives, the republicans are abandoning, obama sided with the ayotola. there was graffiti on the walls that said obama are you with us or against us. those were the demonstrators, the ones who don't shout death to america look to obama and got nothing. >> you know, the question is
6:36 pm
whether the administration is sort of in a suspension of disbelief. you have president obama talking about how this death to america stuff is just rhetoric from people who seem to be separated from the leaders. at the same time john kerry says to jonah goldberg in a fascinating interview he asked him whether he believes iran wants to wipe israel off the map and kerry says i don't know the answer to that. he says they didn't make the bomb when they had enough material. he doesn't know whether iran wants to wipe israel off the map. pulled a couple of quotes. the regime is a cancerous tumor. it will be removed. this wolf like regime of israel has no cure but to be annihilated on and on and on about how here is one. it has to be erased from the map. it is pretty on point. >> you have to ask yourself what
6:37 pm
really is going through kerry's head. after all the negotiator was the so-called moderate foreign minister said exactly the same thing to an interviewer during the negotiations. it isn't that these are extremist statements. it is a fundamental principle of the islamic regime founded in 1979 to the expulsion of the influence of the united states, the domination of u.s. allies and the most important is the eradication of israel as a way to redeem the islamic idea that lands once controlled by islam have to remain under islam and particularly israel because it is in the middle of the middle east and because it includes jerusalem. this is a fundamental principle of theirs and the theme to
6:38 pm
dismiss is really shocking. you wonder how you can negotiate if you have no conception of the real ideology and intentions of your enemy. >> great to see you. see you tomorrow night. >> my pleasure, yes. at this time tomorrow the american people will be treated to a debate being described as nothing short of historic. we'll see. be hope. you can bet immigration will be a hot topic here in this arena. up next best selling author on what they think the voters should be listening for. caring for someone with alzheimer's means i am a lot of things. i am his guardian. i am his voice. so i asked about adding once-daily namenda xr to his current treatment for moderate to severe alzheimer's. it works differently. when added to another alzheimer's treatment, it may improve overall function and cognition. and may slow the worsening of symptoms for a while.
6:39 pm
vo: namenda xr doesn't change how the disease progresses. it shouldn't be taken by anyone allergic to memantine, or who's had a bad reaction to namenda xr or its ingredients. before starting treatment, tell their doctor if they have, or ever had, a seizure disorder, difficulty passing urine, liver, kidney or bladder problems, and about medications they're taking. certain medications, changes in diet, or medical conditions may affect the amount of namenda xr in the body and may increase side effects. the most common side effects are headache, diarrhea, and dizziness. all my life, he's protected me. now i am giving back. ask their doctor about once-daily namenda xr and learn about a free trial offer at sargento people are real cheese people, three generations spanning over 60 years. they don't believe in artificial this or superficial that. they know that in a world of over-processed there's no substitute for a piece of real. real cheese people believe every casserole deserves a shred of authenticity, every sandwich a slice of legit. natural cheese off-the-block,

6:42 pm
plus $15 per line. only at verizon. breaking tonight new polls ahead of the first presidential republican debate show a significant number of voters are focused on what the candidates are going to say about one issue, immigration. in a moment we will be joined by jose antonio vargas who came out as an illegal immigrant himself. we begin with an koulter, an attorney and author of "adios, america." this is big for you. this issue was obviously going to get attention at any presidential debate and then we saw kate steinle murdered and saw donald trump come under fire for his comments about immigration. what specifically are you looking for tomorrow night? >> i think people should be
6:43 pm
looking for every other candidate on stage thanking donald trump because otherwise it would have been me and a few other political watching. now you will have ratings like it is not the super bowl at least the world series because donald trump is there. but one of the main things we look for is nonsense about we want to secure the border but not a wall. look, if they won't put a wall on the border they are not serious about it. chris christie saying he wants to secure the border but i have seen the human spirit. a wall won't work. jeb bush saying it is an act of love and others saying we are going to have drones and high technology on the border is a synonym for no wall. what is a drone going to do? we can watch them run across the border? at least we will be entertained. >> what about because the supporters on the other side
6:44 pm
look at the polls like this one from cbs news and say the american people are behind doing something to allow people to stay. republican voters believe immigrants in the u.s. should be allowed to stay. 55%. does that mean the republicans are against you on this? >> i don't think so. i think it's the way questions are asked. that is very personal. you don't want to feel like you are being mean to the people who are here. a lot of them are good people. that shouldn't be the question for someone running to be the president of the united states. the question should be does this help america? and i like to ask them how many immigrants are enough? we already have 42 million immigrants in this country. these guys talk about how they want to go back to the era of reagan. in the '80s when reagan was elected one in every 16 people residing in american was foreign born. today is one in seven. at what point -- we have 42
6:45 pm
million now. 100 million? how many are enough? >> for the 11 or 12 million who are here now it is impractical not impossible to talk about deporting them. >> verify and they come home the same way they came. everyone made fun of mitt romney for saying they self support. at least 30 million. how is 30 million going to self support? they are going to go home the same way they came. >> ann, thank you. >> thank you. roughly three years ago "time" magazine ran a cover story about the then-12 million people living in america illegally. it was written by jose vargas and the editor of emerging he joins us.

good to see you again. in that article you wrote we are americans. we are here just not legally. and here you are still with no change in status. >> i absolutely agree with what ann coulter just said. does america support -- ann is trying to ask a hard question that no presidential candidate in the republican field has really answered. what do you want to do with us? unfortunately, rick perry is not at the big debate. in texas 1.7 million undocumented people in texas. half of the construction workers in the state of texas are undocumented. what would texas do without undocumented construction workers? what would california do without undocumented migrants and farmers and workers that do these jobs? what do you want to do with us? by the way --
6:47 pm
>> what about in ohio? >> you're in ohio about 12 million people in ohio. that exact same number of undocumented immigrants in the country. do you want to deport all of ohio? >> what do you make of the fact as an undocumented immigrant yourself about the fact that donald trump has surged so in the polls not withstanding his comments very controversial about illegal immigrants? >> i actually think the speaks to how little the american public knows about the issue at least the ones supporting donald trump. the facts are not really out there in regards to how donald trump talks about the issues. two things that are really crucial, 40% of the undocumented population in this country overstayed their visa. we have spent since 9/11 $100 billion in border enforcement. how many more billions of
6:48 pm
dollars should we spend? you just had marco rubio a few minutes ago in his book called the american sun and he wrote in his book if my kid went to sleep hungry and my country didn't give me an opportunity to feed them there isn't a law that would prevent me from coming here. >> that is why ann doesn't like senator rubio because he switched. do you think there is any candidate on the gop stage arriving tomorrow night who you could get behind? >> look, i'm undocumented. i'm not allowed to vote. i'm neither republican nor democrat. i would like to hear jeb bush and his plans. this is the number one thing we heard from people online. the question is from somebody in sacramento how do you plan to work with john boehner and the others in congress who are not willing to negotiate on
6:49 pm
immigration reform in a comprehensive bill? what do they actually want to do? specifics, not talking points. not names. none of that. we want specifics. >> we are partnering with facebook on the debate. these are great questions. thank you. >> thank you for having me. i really appreciate it. >> always good to see you. no matter how good the candidates are in the issues history has proven the real make or break moments come out of the blue. dana perino is next with things to do or not do to ensure success next.

the candidates could lose last minute advicement before taking the cleveland. who better to help them out than a former white house press secretary. here with her list of dos and don't, dana perino, the author of the good news is. they could do much worse than to take dana's advice before they go out there. kick through a couple of your top points on the dos. >> a lot of what i have to say isn't suggesting the points they should make or how they should say something. a lot of it is about the non-verbal cues. you have to remember you're on camera at all times. that means at all times. so there's no, don't fidget don't pick -- there's all sorts of things you can do -- >> pick your what? they shouldn't be picking anything. don't pick a thing. >> nothing. okay. everything is on camera. i don't even know if there's a side view there. i also think it's very important that you have to figure out a way to stick the landing. what i mean is you have to know how you're going to end an
6:54 pm
sentence. if you're on an elevator pitch you can't trail off. you have to say something with a period at the end of a sentence. >> there's so many gymnastics references. stick the landing. in a prep where we're talking about the dismount from our questions. i don't know how it's going to go tomorrow. we'll be doing back flips at the end. all right, so non-verbal behavior is very important. and you pointed -- when we talked before to george w. bush in 2000. watch this. >> can you get things done? and i believe i can. >> i loved it. i loved it. in 2000, i was a supporter of george w. bush. i hadn't met him that. i remember thinking he didn't have to say a word. he said i can handle this. they knew that al gore was what
6:55 pm
they called a space invader. so it's not a moment you can practice. but he wasn't surprised that al gore tried to get into his space. >> that's fascinating. i had some of those in my life. really? you're in the cone, get out of the cone. >> sometimes you don't have to respond to every jab. you can have a look or something like what's wrong with you. >> bush the elder made a big mistake u. what did he do? >> back in the day when people didn't have iphones and had watches. people had a habit of looking at their watch all the time. he's in the middle of the debacht his opponent is drowning on and on and he took a quick look and he didn't know it was a problem. afterwards, his staff said oh, it wasn't good you looked at your watch. it became a moment. you can't doop that because it looks like you're ininterested. >> what's the worst thing they can do tomorrow? >> one of the things i wrote was don't get a fake tan that will
6:56 pm
make you look unnarchertural. i hope they listen to me. they have to figure out a way to have a moment. so they can't go in there with five to six goals. you need two to three goals. if you can get two, that's great. >> yeah. the bronzer. somehow i can't see like jeb bush lying in the tanning bed but i could be crazy about that. great to see you. she'll be with us, we'll be right back. art health's importa. you may... take an omega-3 supplement... ...but it's the ingredients inside that really matter for heart health. new bayer pro ultra omega-3 has two times the concentration of epa and dha as the leading omega-3 supplement. new bayer pro ultra omega-3.
