BARTIROMO: Yes, to be sure.

MCDOWELL: That's the thing I need to --


FREEMAN: The hard news.

MCDOWELL: Tom Hanks' "Joe versus the Volcano" and "Bonfire of the Vanities" -- two of the biggest stinkers of all time that Tom Hanks started.

BARTIROMO: Ok. So we have to embrace everything. We have all those stories coming up. Join us this morning.

We are about to speak with the former house speaker, Newt Gingrich. He will join us this morning, live. Plus former NYPD commissioner and author of the memoir "Vigilance" Ray Kelly -- ahead of the 15 year past September 11. And our very own Stuart Varney joining us, host of "VARNEY & CO".

Hillary Clinton hits Donald Trump over the war on terror. Clinton says Trump is getting support from ISIS now in an interview on Israeli Television yesterday. Watch.


CLINTON: The jihadists see this as a great gift. They are saying "Oh please Allah, make Trump president of America." So I'm not interested in giving aid and comfort to their evil ambitions. I want to defeat them. I want to end the reign of terror.


BARTIROMO: Joining us right now is former Massachusetts senator and a Fox News contributor, Scott Brown. Senator -- good to see you.


BARTIROMO: What about that sound bite that ISIS is asking Allah please let Donald Trump be president. I don't know how she came up with that. But what's your take?

BROWN: Especially after the failed policies of Obama and Clinton when it comes to this particular issue, obviously not leaving that transition force in Iraq which used to be al Qaeda of Iraq which is now ISIS, you know, larger than New England, well-funded, well-oiled, ready to go and ready to cause havoc.

When Donald Trump gets elected president, it will be the worst nightmare for ISIS because he has a plan. He will listen to the generals. He will rely on their guidance. And he will not take off the table the fact that we need to have ground forces and other assets to actually do the job right and do it quickly.

And this is another continuation, Maria, of President Obama being in another country, or Hillary Clinton or the President speaking to foreign networks and actually belittling and demeaning not only American citizens but our nominee.

BARTIROMO: So what do you guys think about that? I mean did any of that come out during the commander in chief forum the other night? Takeaways?

MORGAN ORTAGUS, MAVERICK PAC: I thought it was a messy forum for the both of them. It was a tough night. I have a question for Scott Brown, actually.

You're talking about Donald Trump's plan to defeat ISIS which I think is incredibly important. Will that plan include putting America troops in Syria and Iraq? I know we have Special Forces there. But will that be a ground component in order to defeat ISIS because Hillary Clinton has been very, you know, staunch that she's not sending ground forces.

BROWN: Well, with respect to her comments, Morgan, very good question. There are already ground forces -- upwards of 6,000. And that's why she had to hold a press conference yesterday to clarify her position. She's like well, all they're getting is these ground forces, they're not combat ground forces. Listen, they're ground forces. They are doing a mission not only advising but obviously they are in a strategic fighting position as well.

You can't take anything off the table. You're not only -- you're softball telegraphing to our enemies what we're going to do so they can adjust and adapt. But you need to rely on the generals on the ground and their information and guidance and that's one of the biggest.

When Trump said the generals are in rubbles -- that's what he was referring to, the fact that you know as well as I do that they have their hands tied. The rules of engagement are so prohibitive for them doing their job and the President is given advice and then does virtually the complete opposite. That's what he was referring.

And so he's going to rely on that plan and then hopefully execute that plan with clarity and with force.

BARTIROMO: Yes. Dagen.

MCDOWELL: Should he choose another though when he said "rubble"?

BROWN: Yes, of course. MCDOWELL: Again, that's what people end up fixating on and then it takes his surrogates, even a Governor Pence, to clarify it after the fact.

BROWN: Sure, sure, of course. Just like, you know, Allah wants Trump it to be president. That's ridiculous as well. Of course they don't want that. They would love to have actually, probably the complete opposite because they know with this policy that Obama and Kerry and Clinton are participating in that ISIS is still thriving and growing. They're just adjusting and adapting, you know, they put out here but they show up in other areas.

BARTIROMO: Right. And to be clear a number of President Obama's generals have been rejected. I mean, you know, they had presented plans to the President and the President has rejected them. So I understand what he was saying but to say reduced to rubble was probably the wrong wording.

BROWN: When I heard that -- Maria, if I may -- I thought that the generals were demoralized in the fact that they are providing great insight and great intell because they are fantastic leaders.

BARTIROMO: Yes, demoralized is a lot more accurate -- I agree with you.

Here's James Freeman from the Journal.


FREEMAN: Thanks. I actually thought that Trump did a decent job of basically, without revealing any classified information giving the tone of the briefing he received and totally agree with you that Hillary Clinton has not given ISIS a lot of reason to fear her.

But can you talk to us, just as a political practitioner, looking at that Clinton interview it seems to me if you want to deliver a line like that maybe it ought to have a little bit of a smirk. The delivery seemed odd.

It was a little curious.

BROWN: Just seeing it and then hearing it and listening to it again.


BROWN: Just the tone and that belittling, condescending, you know, oh my God, how dare the fact that we are virtually tight or Trump's winning. Can't believe I'm not winning this and walking away with it mentality. And that's one of the problems with her.

People don't like her. They don't trust and every day there is something new going to that trust issue. And with respect, you know, people talk about mistakes well yes, Donald Trump has made mistakes, Maria, as evidenced by his using a word that could have been better explained in a different manner.

Hillary Clinton's mistakes as we have referenced before have cost people their lives, have cost countries and families their sovereignty and destroyed really countries in their leadership structure so now we have ISIS and al Qaeda and other groups, Boko Haram, just kind moving in and taking over those areas.


BROWN: You know, our security, our national security that's what her mistakes have cost. And people kind of, you know, laugh at her when she makes these outrageous statements like I'm going to be tough on ISIS. I'm going to do this. Well, she hasn't done it yet so I mean why should she start now?


Let me ask you this. Donald Trump and governor Mike Pence will be headlining this 11th Annual Values Voter Summit this weekend. The event begins tonight, it's in D.C., the nation's capital where Trump will try to gain the support of social conservatives. How do you think he'll do? Senator Brown, what does he has to do to appeal to these voters and bring in more Republicans?

BROWN: Well, first of all, I'm glad he's doing it. And I'm glad Pence is going to be there with them. Pence has a lot of respect obviously from that group. Donald Trump has worked very hard to bring in that group. And the conservatives have a choice at this point.

They're seeing what Hillary is doing -- raising taxes and dealing with our military, you know, kind of that intersection of money and politics which will continue under the Clinton administration.

And they look at Donald Trump and they're like you know what, I'm going to give this guy a chance. So my hope is number one, they show up. They interact and they be honest. Look people in the eye and tell them their position. And you may not agree on everything but I guarantee that they agree with Trump and Pence more than they will with Clinton and Kaine.

Absolutely. And then they'll coalesce hopefully and we'll see a victory in 59 days.

BARTIROMO: We will be watching that.

Senator -- good to see you Scott. Thank you.

BROWN: Good to see you guys. Thank you.

BARTIROMO: Senator Scott Brown joining us.

Coming up Samsung's troubles getting worse. The FAA warning passengers not to use their Galaxy Note 7 phones on board. The details next.

And then your Chipotle burrito can be delivered to you by drone. How Google's parent company Alphabet is working to make that a reality.

Back in a moment.


BARTIROMO: Welcome back.

Samsung has some problems, they are getting worse, over exploding Galaxy Note 7 smart phones.

Here's Cheryl Casone with the story and headlines now -- Cheryl.


The phone went on sale three weeks ago and Samsung has now recalled 2.5 million units after reports that the phone's lithium ion batteries have burst into flames for some consumers.

Now the Federal Aviation Administration is telling airline passengers not to turn on or charge the devices on board planes and not to put them in checked baggages. Some airlines, by the way, are actually not starting to ban the phone completely.

Now this comes after -- look at this -- a Florida man said that his Jeep caught fire as he was charging his Samsung smart phone in the car. Listen.


UNIDENTIFIED MALE: That's the last thought in my head is that a brand new device, something as simple as a phone is going to burn down my car or my house or hurt a family member.


CASONE: There was nobody in that, by the way, and he says he's not hiring a lawyer but the Jeep was totaled -- completely destroyed. Samsung saying so far there have been no reports of injuries from exploding phones. They are investigating those 35 buyers right now.

The problem for Samsung is setback in its hopes to compete with the new iPhone 7 from Apple. That, by the way, went on pre-sale this morning 3:00 a.m. Eastern time.

Well, there is a new family-friendly benefit at Deloitte. The accounting firm is offering its employees up to four months of fully paid leave for all care giving, which now includes care for elderly parents. A Deloitte spokesman tells the "Wall Street Journal" the policy is a recognition that care giving isn't limited to new parents but affects a far broader class of employees.

And finally this, kids. Imagine having your burrito delivered by a drone. Well, Chipotle and Google parent company Alphabet, teaming up for an experimental service set to launch this month on the campus, of course, of Virginia Tech because it's college kids who love burritos.

It is going to be run by Project Wing. It's a division of the former GoogleX research and development facility. That's all under Alphabet. So Project Wing will make use of hybrid drones. They glide through the air like a plane. They hover in place like a helicopter, then they drop down the burrito and then, you know, it comes from a food truck. They're going to hover above the destination, lower the food down.

So if you are a college kid at Virginia Tech today I would consider getting your burritos by drone and then send us a video to the show.

BARTIROMO: That is great. It's a whole new area of business for drones -- James.

FREEMAN: Yes. I'm a little skeptical on this particular project because as I understand what Google, what Alphabet is trying to do is make people comfortable with this technology. So if you're trying to make people comfortable delivering Chipotle.

BARTIROMO: What are you talking about?

FREEMAN: I'm not saying you will get salmonella as they did in Minnesota, e coli, norovirus as they had in California. That's unlikely but I don't know if I would pick that particular food.

ORTAGUS: I totally disagree.

BARTIROMO: After all that Chipotle has gone through.

MCDOWELL: Getting a little norovirus if you're a college student is really the least of your worries about what you could catch -- ok, James.

FREEMAN: Of course.

MCDOWELL: Number one. And number two if this is even marginally hot food that is within like a hundred feet of your dorm room, they're all in.

BARTIROMO: But how are you going to keep it hot if it's in the drone.

ORTAGUS: I order three meals a day on Seamless. So I think this sounds amazing. I can't wait for the drones to come. Can we have one right now. I'd love a burrito.

BARTIROMO: Well, summer just ended and retailers are already making their holiday list to hire workers but a shipping crisis could throw a wrench into the Christmas shopping season. That story is next.

Back in a minute.


BARTIROMO: Well, Christmas is three months away but the hunt for holiday workers is on now -- Amazon, Wal-Mart and FedEx, all recruiting for the peak shopping season and boosting wages.

Also affecting the holidays, a container ship stranded at sea could impact retailer shelves after the South Korean company behind the ship went bankrupt.

We want to talk about this because this is an important part for the economy. James Freeman from the "Wall Street Journal" is with us today.

Is the increase in online shopping driving the demand for hiring? What are your expectations in terms of job creation? I know it's temps -- temporary workers around the holidays.

FREEMAN: Well, obviously we have a very soft number last Friday, 151,000. It wasn't really a big surprise given the economy is slowing down. So I think any bump up from that seasonal hiring is obviously welcome news.

BARTIROMO: Yes, welcome news and you wonder if that's actually going to impact wages -- Dagen.

MCDOWELL: And you've seen a lot of the retailers, I point to Wal-Mart already raising their wages going into this year. And I always want to point this out when people talk about the need for a $15 minimum wage. The average full-time worker at Wal-Mart makes more than $13 an hour. They make $13.38 an hour starting this year. So you've already seen wages increasing there. And in terms of the hunt for new hires over the holidays it's going to push wages up even more.

FREEMAN: Also, you might get some good news beyond seasonal. You're seeing, we're talking about retail, you're seeing a bunch of retailers who seem to be kind of gearing up to compete on expanded food offerings. Barnes and Noble saying this week they feel like they cut too many people off the floor, they want to add more there. Also want to bring in some restaurants to their locations. You're seeing that with some of the other retailers so that could cause a bump in hiring as well.

BARTIROMO: Yes, that's a good point.

ORTAGUS: And going into November, Maria, where every vote and every point is going to count. I'm curious at the news that James is talking about. How is this going to affect the job numbers? How is this going to affect the economy so close to the election into the holidays? Does that paint a better picture perhaps for Hillary Clinton?

BARTIROMO: Is it more important to look at the jobs numbers like right before the election and that would be the October number or the September number.

FREEMAN: I think historically the economic situation is already factored in.

BARTIROMO: Ok. It's typically the first half of the year. So even if you think it gets more important later I don't think we're going to see huge changes. I mean we kind of -- we see where the economy is going. We see the jobs numbers lately.

BARTIROMO: Factored in --

FREEMAN: You know, seven million people are not going to get back into the labor force next month.

BARTIROMO: Let me get your take on this story because Goldman Sachs is barring its top employees from contributing to Donald Trump's presidential campaign. Other banks are not following suit but they're basically making it a policy. Do not contribute to Donald Trump's campaign.

ORTAGUS: This story astounds me. I mean typically most of the banks and most any corporation, right, will want people to donate to both sides of the aisle. Very typically you want to seem to be bipartisan and how they can do this and get away with this especially after they've been criticized relentlessly this year for giving Hillary Clinton hundreds of thousands of dollars in speeches. It's a really, really bad political move.

BARTIROMO: And Morgan Stanley also encourages its people to give to Hillary Clinton.


BARTIROMO: They have a hard rule when it comes to Donald Trump.

ORTAGUS: When Elizabeth Warren is running this economy they can thank themselves. That's what I think.

BARTIROMO: That's a good point Morgan. They're not thinking about that. And yes, it's a head scratcher.

Go ahead James.

FREEMAN: Well, the banks are tilting to Clinton but in their defense there is this misguided law and regulation that is basically saying you can't give money to state politicians if you're in the business of municipal bond underwriting. They're saying Mike Pence is on the ticket therefore we can't give. I think it's probably a reading they don't need to do. But it's also totally misguided regulation.

I mean if you want to fight corruption put people in jail. Allow people to express themselves by supporting political campaigns.

MCDOWELL: You can express yourself by going out and campaigning I suppose than getting on the phones -- right. In terms -- in exchange for a dollar donation you pick up the phone.


MCDOWELL: If you work at Goldman Sachs. If they have cocktail parties and things like that to go to, I'm sure.

BARTIROMO: All right.

Listen, it's true but I think just the fact that they put the statement out saying don't, it's worth mentioning.

MCDOWELL: Absolutely. They were looking for a reason to tell their employees that.

BARTIROMO: You know what, it's interesting. When you look at the internationalists, the globalists, you know, the large banks, they are for Hillary Clinton obviously but the working man seems to increasingly be for Donald Trump even if that working man or working woman obviously is at one of the major banks.

What do you think the percentage of the employees want Donald Trump versus the top leadership at a Goldman Sachs for example?

MCDOWELL: Growing in his favor.

BARTIROMO: I agree with you.

MCDOWELL: I will point this out about the working women. I brought it up at the top of the show about she is using that gender card. She's trying to keep people from criticizing her and then at the same time tell the American people hey, it's time to elect a woman and I'm it, to the highest office in the land.

Women hate that. Women absolutely hate that.

ORTAGUS: And that's how she won her Senate seat, you know, with Rick Lazio. I mean every time --

MCDOWELL: She's talking about that debate -- remember the --


ORTAGUS: -- every time she's backed in the corner.

MCDOWELL: Where he came over to her with -- he wanted her to sign off on that. And he got in her space and she did this and that's --

ORTAGUS: Millennial women don't like that -- Dagen. You know, millennial women don't like always having to use a woman to be an excuse because they're coming up in an era when there are so many possibilities and opportunities they just don't see this massive sexism everywhere. When sexism is out there let's call a spade, a spade, let's call it for what it is.


ORTAGUS: But it doesn't help women. It doesn't help me as a professional woman to call sexism on everything.

BARTIROMO: That's actually true. That's why everybody got mad at Madeleine Albright when she said, you know, there's a place in hell for a woman who does not help a woman by voting for Hillary Clinton. People got mad at that --

MCDOWELL: James, you're the only dude here. What do you have to say about this?

FREEMAN: Yes. Speaking to all American women --

MCDOWELL: Get into your "Wall Street Journal" editorial writer --

FREEMAN: I did want to add though and this as a bipartisan. This is male and female. I think you've seen going back to the '08 campaign Hillary Clinton has had a hard time winning over working-class blue-collar voters. And I think that's why Donald Trump is particularly dangerous for her and you look at a lot of these Midwest states that for a while were kind of reliably Democratic that he may be able to flip this year.

ORTAGUS: When she went into Chipotle, she had on these sunglasses. She looked like Anna Wintour. She didn't talk to anybody and it was like oh God -- people.

BARTIROMO: Well, she's also having a hard time with women. And that was the case in the last campaign. She had a hard time with women.

MCDOWELL: To somebody I said when I was down in Virginia last time and said I'm not voting for somebody who let herself be stepped on all those years just so she can step up now.


All right. Still to come, Hillary Clinton's e-mail troubles clouding the campaign as a judge orders the State Department to release any and all Benghazi related e-mails between Hillary Clinton and the White House.

Then Mylan's embattled CEO, Heather Bresch, making it to the Fortune's list of most powerful women. Coming up we will tell you who topped that list for the second year in a row.

Stay with us.


BARTIROMO: TGIF. Welcome back everybody. Happy Friday to you. I'm Maria Bartiromo and it is Friday, September 9th. We're happy you're with us.

Your top stories right now at 7:30 a.m. on the East Coast.

The race for the White House tightens this morning; Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton clashing over who's best to be commander in chief.


DONALD TRUMP (R), PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE: By the way, the whole country saw how unfit she was at the town hall last night, where she refused to take accountability for her failed policies in the Middle East.

HILLARY CLINTON (D), PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE: He prefers the Russian president to our American president. That is not just unpatriotic, it's not just insulting to the office and the man who holds the office, it is scary, it is dangerous.


BARTIROMO: Plus new questions this morning over Hillary Clinton's private email. FOX is learning that her email had multiple classified markings, despite her claims otherwise.

SpaceX grounded. Last week's explosion could prevent the company from launching rockets for up to a year. What Elan Mosk has to say about that this morning; that's coming up. And the CEO of Mylan Labs, Heather Bresch, under fire this morning over the EpiPen price scandal, yet she's still Fortune's Most Powerful Women List; she's on that list. We'll tell you who topped the list, coming up. Another NFL star takes a knee: The outrage of a Bronco star, Brandon Marshall, now joining Colin Kaepernick in protest; he would not stand for the National Anthen. An Easter without Peeps? Why the marshmallow treats could be absent from your Easter basket next year.

And markets this morning expected to open lower. Take a look at Futures indicating a lower opening, losing ground in the last hour. We have some negative reaction to no stimulus yesterday in Europe and by the European Central Bank. European markets are also lower today and that sets the tone for the U.S. market as well. The FTSE 100(ph), the CAC 40 Index(ph), and the DAX Index in Germany all weaker this morning. In Asia, overnight, more of a mixed performance overnight. Take a look. As you can see, the KOSPI Index in Korea worse performing down one and a quarter percent.

At last night's Mariners game, it was off-the-field moments making the highlight reel; a little girl stealing the spotlight while eating cotton candy. The picture and the video has gone viral.

Meanwhile, an FBI source telling FOX NEWS exclusively that Hillary Clinton's emails had multiple classified markings that debunks her claims that she did not understand what the little "c" meant; it meant classified. Joining me right now is the host of "JUSTICE" on the FOX NEWS CHANNEL, Judge Jeanine Pirro. Also with us is the father of one of those brave men who lost their life in Benghazi, Charles Woods. His son, Ty Woods, was a CIA contractor in Benghazi. Thank you very much for joining us, sir, it is good to have you.

CHARLES WOODS: Good morning. Thank you, Maria.

BARTIROMO: And Judge, these emails had multiple classification markings. Does Hillary have an excuse for mishandling this information? You laugh.

JUDGE JEANINE PIRRO, FBN HOST: Well, Hillary Clinton is the one who came out, if you recall, at the U.N., and said, "I certainly know what classification - what is classified," and "c" is - it means confidential or classified. It was all over these emails, and she tells the FBI that she's not sure what it means, that it could be part of an alphabetical listing. And the fact that she said this to the FBI clearly indicates that she was lying to them or that she is incompetent. And either way, it's not good. Either way it indicates that she is not in any way taking responsibility from what she's done that she was willing to communicate classified confidential information on her unprotected email server. And it goes on and on, Maria.

BARTIROMO: Yes, and you know Charles Woods, we're happy that you're joining us this morning, because there were really stunning comments from Hillary Clinton two nights ago at the Commander in Chief Forum as it relates to Benghazi. Listen to this, Sir. I want to get your reaction.


CLINTON: I put together a coalition that included NATO, included the Arab League, and we were able to save lives. We did not lose a single American in that action.


BARTIROMO: Charles Woods, what do you say to that? Obviously, we know four of our people died, including our ambassador and your beloved son.

CHARLES WOODS: Maria, when I first heard that comment, I was shocked. My response was, "I can think of four Americans, including my son, who lost their lives in Libya because of her failure as Secretary of State, both before, during, and after the attack on Benghazi."

BARTIROMO: And we know that, and obviously we all have our condolences for you; your son was a hero. Do you think it's just - what did she say(ph) - short circuited, did she forget, or is she still trying to rewrite history?

WOODS: Well, I think that she wants the American people to forget about her failures in Benghazi. My son would still be alive if she had performed her duties and protected those people that were under her care and supervision in Libya, and of course that raises the question: If she could not protect four Americans in Libya, how can she protect 330 million Americans here in our country?
