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 something t >> 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. you heard what donald trump is
7:11 am
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 of po 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
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. if you can't trust h 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
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. >> 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

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 news feels like a copout.
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
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 extent 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.

7:46 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 to, 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. ,
