And then Hillary Clinton's vice presidential pick, Tim Kaine accept his nomination.

Coming up the panel grade to his convention debut. Back in a moment.


BARTIROMO: Welcome back everybody. I'm Maria bathroom. We are coming to you live this morning from the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

It is Thursday, July 28. Your top stories right now, 6:30 a.m. on the east coast.

Democrats bringing out the heavy-hitters last night ahead of final day of the convention, Hillary Clinton herself appearing on stage after President Obama and other speakers targeted Trump and the Republican Party.


BARACK OBAMA, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: What we heard in Cleveland last week wasn't particularly Republican. And it sure wasn't Conservative. What we heard was a deeply pessimistic vision of a country where we turn against each other and turn away from the rest of the world.

JOE BIDEN, (D) VICE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: Any party that would nominate Donald Trump for president has moved too far away from his party of Lincoln.


BARTIROMO: Despite unity on stage, protesters walking out of the arena burning flags on the street at Philadelphia. It was an ugly scene.

Donald Trump on the campaign, a trail meanwhile ramped up his attacks on Hillary Clinton. How he's taking the spotlight from the DNC, coming up.

A missing Gitmo detainee found, you will not believe where, the former prisoner just appeared from Uruguay last month. We will tell you about it.

In Business we are watching earnings once again this morning that is driving the story. Facebook reporting a blowout quarter last night. The stocks set to open at an all all-time high this morning. What drove the success for the social media giant. What to expect from other big names after the close tonight.

And a milestone for Apple following a strong earnings report yesterday, the company announced it has sold, its one billion Iphone.

Futures edging higher this morning, we're expecting higher opening for the broader average take a look, the Dow Joan Industrial average voice to open up, that's 20 points. In Europe stocks are trade near the flat line as you will see the FTSE 100 down, just fraction there 10 points.

And in Asia overnight, also markets for mostly lower but again not major moves here. As you will see it's a fractional move than Nikkei average in Japan, the biggest mover down better than 1 percent.

Angry Bernie Sanders supporters continuing to make their presence felt on the streets of Philadelphia. Fox News Leland Vittert, to with the very latest right now. Good morning to you, Leland.

LELAND VITTERT, FOX NEWS: Good morning Maria. And the protest groups are really didn't broken into some sort of distinct factions here in Philadelphia.

The Bernie Sanders supporters by further largest group by far or so the most peaceful group, then you have those folks over the honk for free weed people. They've been making their voices heard although they're not out right now, perhaps, sleeping without the anarchist out here. We also have the communist out here and then some assorted hangers on.

So that is the crowd that comes out and fill these streets every night and these security barriers are the front line of battle between the police and protesters. Pretty easy to get arrested if you want, just climb over one of the barriers and that's what seven people did yesterday. And the secret service is more than happy to oblige them in arresting them.

We did have one injury out here last night and that was someone who had lit an American flag on fire and with essentially dancing on the burning flag. They themselves became lit on fire as well and they had to be sure tackled to the ground and then have water bottles thrown on them by their fellow protesters. Good news is this protesters is going to survive although they have burns on their legs at a local hospital.

Big question here for this last day, Maria, there's a bunch of little groups getting together to do what they call a Dem exit, they're trying to get support from Bernie Sanders supports to register their leaving the Democratic Party, unclear how many people are going to actually show up for that, Maria.

BARTIROMO: All right, Leland, thank you so much Leland Vittert with the latest there.

President Obama, Vice President Biden, and Senator Tim Kaine making the case for Hillary Clinton last night by going after Donald Trump.


OBAMA: Ronald Reagan called America a shining city on a hill. Donald Trump calls it a divided crime scene that only he can fix.

BIDEN: He's lack of empathy and compassion can be summed in a phrase, I suspect he's most proud how they make him famous. You are fired.

TIM KAINE, VICE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: Can I offer you a little tip, when you want to know something about the character of somebody in public life, look to see if they have a passion that began long before they were in office and that they have consistently held it throughout their career. Donald Trump has a passion too, it's himself.


BARTIROMO: Joining me now with their grades for headliners Conservative Commentator, Kirsten Haglund and Democratic strategist Sascha Burns. Good to see you ladies. Thanks so much for joining us.


All right. So, Kirsten, let me tick it off with you. Let's go through it first President Obama, how would you grade the president's speech last night?

HAGLUND: You know I gave the President a B minus. And that's because he came out. He was his typical, very optimistic self. He gave a beautiful speech by many accounts. And he did what he did in 2008. He railed up people's emotion then gave them a feeling of hope.

So, it was good from that perspective but it was difficult to stomach his arguments on the fact that he's arguing for Hillary Clinton saying, there's all the things wrong and only she can fix. And yet -- if they've gone wrong is directly because of his record.

So, it was hard to kind of square that and at the end of the day people are not going to vote for Barack Obama. They're going to vote for Hillary Clinton. So he set the bar pretty high for her tomorrow night. Because she needs to come out and really engaged people emotionally like he did. And she has shown on the campaign trail another time that she's not always the greatest at that.


SASCHA BURNS, DEMOCRATIC STRATEGIST: Well, what a great night to be a Democrat. And what a great night to be an American, after watching the Republicans last week, it's nice to reminded that we are great. And no, we don't need you Donald Trump to make us great because we already are.

And that was the part that Obama was talking about. It's not just about sort of empty whether an inspiration. It's about reality.

BARTIROMO: Sounds like you gave him an A.

BURNS: I gave him an A plus, plus, plus.

BARTIROMO: A plus, plus, plus. All right. Vice president Biden, who's I've really liked on both sides of the aisle, what do you think Kirsten?

HAGLUND: Yeah. I mean I gave to Biden a solid A. I mean that was a fantastic performance. I mean let's be honest. It was very patriotic. He was very passionate. And here's the thing that Joe Biden does really well. And I would ask my fellow Republicans to really listen here. OK. He is real. He's authentic. He connects with the American people in a way that doesn't just highlight what's wrong with their life. He also lift them up. And that's what Republicans .


HAGLUND: . really need to do. So, I think if anyone in the GOP was watching last night. They can really take a lift out of Joe Biden's book. And I give him a solid A.

BARTIROMO: It was a good speech actually.

BURNS: It was an excellent speech. And you know he look at the teleprompter. I was sitting there working. But I couldn't help to look up because he was just engage with that teleprompter and say, I know Hillary Clinton and just a 100 percent convicted in everything he was saying. And that's why Joe Biden is Joe Biden.

BARTIROMO: Yes. Sascha.

BURNS: Such Uncle Joe. That's right. Absolutely, he's -- you know he's wonderful. And he also really addressed the middle class and the -- you know Democrats aren't saying there isn't work still to be done. We're saying that's why we need or my favorite as Bloomberg said somebody sane and competent. OK. Look at with that.

HAGLUND: Well, and you noticed he didn't gave re-endorsement for Hillary Clinton. He just painted Donald Trump as a dangerous candidate.

MORGAN ORTAGUS, MAVERICK PAC NATIONAL CO-CHAIR: But really his personal story when he talked about the loss of his son. He's been through so much of his life.


ORTAGUS: And I think that really touched a lot of people. And how he is able to remain so optimistic after everything he's been through. I mean I don't know how you can't help to like the guy any (inaudible) where my husband from so .

BARTIROMO: Go. He's got back on from, all right. Then there's Senator Tim Kaine, now this was a risk that he took because not only is he out sort of being attack dog against Donald Trump. But this is the first time that America is meeting Senator Kaine in some regard certainly for their -- as vice presidential pick, how do you grade Senator Kaine, Kirsten?

HAGLUND: I gave Senator Kaine a C Plus. So, he was average because he's a little above average. This was his chance to really knock it out of the park. And he did a great job of kind of highlighting some of his more progressive positions which he really had to do because of the criticism of his being too conservative. He did that with his speaking Spanish, with his Si se puede. You know, that one over so well in the audience, as well of talking about his edition on gun control.

But at the end of the day he's just perfectly normal. He's not that exciting. He's not that engaging. And I'll tell you, he really -- they really need the Millennial vote to turn out. And so that's what I was worried about. He's another old white guy. And he's really going to have to bump up his energy and enthusiasm and way to really connect to the audience outside of that -- they, you know, the plea and the pander to go Hispanic voters like he did last night.

BARTIROMO: Especially the -- about the Sanders' supporters we know are not fans, Sascha.

BURNS: You know, some of the mart -- you're absolutely right. But they -- a lot of Sanders' supporters and Millennials are people that don't tend to vote. Most of the Bernie supporters that I've been talking to here are going to vote with Hillary and it's the same again as Bloomberg said to independents as well. It doesn't matter. You can disagree with her all you want, sane and competent.

ORTAGUS: But Sascha, what do you think about when he was doing the believe me. It did make me laughed. But I kept thinking about Rubio and how he did that in prime -- I mean how it really backfired. And I was thinking of this in the context of this is his introduction to a national audience. So, do you think maybe that was a weird way to introduce by having him mop Trump in a fake me your New York accent?

BURNS: Well being from West Virginia. I practice my accent first. I think he could've work on that. You know, I mean Tim Kaine was between Joe Biden and Bloomberg. He wasn't picked because he's excited. He was picked because he's kind of a white guy.

BARTIROMO: But to believe me impersonation. I mean was it appropriate, was it -- what he should be doing on day one of saying hello to the American people?

BURNS: I had no problem with it.


BARTIROMO: Go ahead, Kirsten real quick.

HAGLUND: No, well no, it just kept going and going. And I was like OK. If you're going to stop with this rip already. And just -- he's arguing about how trustworthy Hillary Clinton is. It's just totally ironic given the fact that she's lied to the American people.

BARTIROMO: All right, we will leave it there, Kirsten Haglund, Sashca Burns good to see you both.

BURNS: Thank you.

BARTIROMO: Don't forget to tune in to our special prime time coverage tonight, 6:00 p.m. eastern including Hillary Clinton's address live from Philadelphia. I'll kick it off.


BARTIROMO: Welcome back. With the Futures looking pretty good. We are expecting a higher opening for the broader averages today. Take a look. The Dow Jones Industrial expected to open up about 20 Points. Jobless claimed throughout today. But tomorrow is a bigger day in terms of economic data. The GDP is out tomorrow.

Take a look at the stocks on the move this morning. Royal Dutch Shell reporting a 72 percent decline in second-quarter earnings from a year earlier as lower crude oil weighed on results. The oil giant also blaming expenses related to the $54 billion takeover of BG Group.

Alcoa shares are raging low with this morning. It is looking to make a one for three reverse stock split. It comes as the company prepares to split in two actually.

A former Guantanamo Bay detainee who disappeared from Uruguay last month and now found in Venezuela.

Cheryl Casone with the story and headlines now. Cheryl, good morning.

CHERYL CASONE, FOX BUSINESS: Yeah. Good morning Maria. Well, Abu Wa'el Dhiab turned off at Uruguay consulate in Caracas, asking for assistance to fly the Turkey to meet his family. The Syria native is one of six former Guantanamo prisoners who were resettled in Uruguay after being released into 2014. His disappearance, remember sort of international alarm bell, especially ahead of the Olympics. The man had been detained in 2002 for suspected ties to Al-Qaeda.

Well, the man who try today assassinate President Reagan 35 years ago is set to be freed. A federal judge has ordered John Hinckley Jr. to be released from the government psychiatric hospital a week from tomorrow. He will live with his mother in Virginia, Hinckley who is now 61 tried to kill President Reagan outside the Washington held in back in 1981.

President Reagan and three other people were wounded and particular severely his Press Secretary James Brady if you remember. Hinckley was found not guilty by reason of mental insanity.

And Apple has reached the major milestones. CEO Tim Cook telling employees that company sold his one billion Iphone last week. And also this back in January, Apple passing the 1 billion mark for total devices, that includes the Iphone, the Ipad, the Mac, Ipad touch and Apple T.V., even the Apple Watch, Maria. And get this, a little bit of history for is in trivia. Steve Jobs unveiled the Iphone, January 9th, 2007 back in San Francisco. And we still love them. Back to you.

BARTIROMO: Oh, yeah, we do. Thank you Cheryl for that. More technology earning on top today. Alphabet, a parent of Google and Amazon hoping to continue on Facebook's earning success. More on what to expect from the tech sector on earnings. We're coming right back. Stay with us. Market is looking in higher.


BARTIROMO: Welcome back, shares of Facebook are up 5 percent right now after earning as beast after the battle yesterday. The social media giant showing no signs of slowing down, reporting better than expected result, revenue with Facebook up 59 percent from a year earlier. Company had 1.7 billion monthly active users in the second quarter, 1.7 billion active users. A 15 percent increase year over year. Dagen is looking at Facebook, are they going to be able to keep up this kind of momentum, Dagen?

DAGEN MCDOWELL, FOX BUSINESS NETWORK: They have been. The company is unstoppable. If you look at the numbers so, Facebook's quarterly profit in three months, it earned more than $2 billion and had hit the 1 billion- dollar milestone just six months ago. You want to talk about just astronomical nonstop world profit growth.

The number of users we talked about the 1.71 billion users. It added 220 million monthly active users in just the last year.


MCDOWELL: And of the bulk of this people more than 90 percent of Facebook users are mobile or using mobile devices. And so it, you know there was one .

BARTIROMO: And they figured out how to monetize that.

MCDOWELL: Right, and the one area that was a concern just a couple years ago was growth in mobile advertising, well, they are advertising on mobile devices accounted for 84 percent of its total ad sales and that actually growing faster, the revenue generated from mobile app is growing faster than the overall advertising growth for Facebook.

So, I don't -- if they keep adding users like that and continue to figure out how to monetize the old cell phone. Then they can't be stopped.

BARTIROMO: And now, we've got amazon and Google parent Alphabet, Amazon has been unstoppable as well as even though they haven't seen the kind of earnings growth that you talk about when you look at Facebook.

MCDOWELL: Prime will be critical. How many people will signed up for prime particularly you know, if they have the one -- the annual prime day but also the web services that have been a huge driver for Amazon's earnings and revenue. That - and again, every corporation under the sun, it seems like uses Amazon's web services. And so, watch that.

And then Google tends to disappoint, there was one story I read in the Wall Street Journal that Alphabet, for I don't -- wait I've got to change -- get my head around calling Google that still, but they're falling short. Earnings have -- of analysts expectations in 8 of the last 12 quarters. So you can factor it. But Facebook stock in after hour trading in this morning at an all-time high.

BARTIROMO: Pretty unbelievable. And there is Google at 761 and change. All right, we will be watching this change. That may well set the tone, the tech numbers.

Ford meanwhile hoping to get boost from its trucks and SUVS. Coming up in the next hour Ford CEO Mark Fields will be with us telling us how he is intend to go drive growth.

Stay with us. Busy morning right here right here live from Philadelphia at the Democratic National Convention. We'll be right back.

Democrats bringing out the heavy hitters last night ahead of the final day of the convention, the night was filled with praise for Hillary Clinton, but the speakers, well, they didn't waste time and the opportunity to bash Donald Trump as well.


OBAMA: America is already great. America is already strong. And I promise you our strength, our greatness does not depend on Donald Trump.

BIDEN: When the middle class does well, the rich do very well and the poor have hope. They have a way up. He has no clue about what makes America great. Actually he has no clue period.

MICHAEL BLOOMBERG, CEO OF BLOOMBERG L.P.: I'm a New Yorker and I know a con when I see one.


BARTIROMO: Clinton making another surprise appearance at the convention, joining President Obama on stage at the end of his speech and hugging. It comes ahead of her headline speech tonight.

Despite the unity on stage, though, well protesters continue their fight for their third night in a row where some demonstrators were burning the American flag. It's got ugly. We will bring you the latest on that.
