our dana mckenzie sits down and talks with him, in captivity. where is nsa leaker edward snowden and why is america unable to stop him? he was last thought to be in moscow and now it's a mystery. russia's foreign ministry claiming snowden did not cross into russia. wikileaks founder julian assange claims he's in a safe location and his spirits are high. atika shubert live in our london bureau what is the latest? >> we have dozens of reporters in moscow airport looking for snowden but it seems nobody has seen him. the big question is where could he be? where in the world is edward snowden. this morning, no one seems to know. he's likely somewhere in the moscow airport's transit terminal caught in legal limbo not technically in russia, so
not technically russia's problem but snowden is turning into a very big problem indeed. he was expected on an air flight to havana, cuba but as a planeload on the 13-hour flight found out too late his seat went empty ecuador may take him in but diplomats haven't said they'll allow him entry this as u.s. has blistering statements on russia, ecuador and anyone else thinking of taking him in. for now we believe he waits. his global journey aided by jewel an assange, founder of wikileaks, a man whose own legal troubles have led him to seek refuge in the ecuador embassy in london. >> edward snowden is not a
traitor. he is not a spy. he is a whistleblower. he told the public an important thursday. >> assange said wikileaks paid for his flights and counsel but not where is he, only saying he is "healthy, safe and in high spirits." the latest from sergey lavrov, russia's foreign minister. russia was not informed of snowden's plans. he made the travel plans by himself and we understand from airport officials snowden can stay in that terminal indefinitely so it could go on for a while yet. >> atika, thank you very much. boy, what we do not know far outweighs what we do. absolutely right. as the u.s. struggles to find edward snowden the white house is finding edward snowden in a tough spot.
they called his escape from hong kong a serious setback for u.s./china relations. dan lothian is at the white house with the latest. the question on everyone's mind what more can and should the white house do? >> reporter: white house applying all kinds of pleasure, legal and political pressure but there's a lot of frustration at the white house and even as snowden remains on the run, there are new revelations this morning the "south china morning post" reported snowden took the contractor job so he could collect information on the programs and there's an understatement to get snowden back here. the edward snowden cat and mouse game has become a diplomatic headache for the white house and president obama for the first time in public is putting pressure on any country trying to assist the nsa leaker. >> what we know is we're following all the appropriate
legal channel and working with various other countries to make sure the rule of law is observed. >> reporter: the obama administration is frustrated with hong kong and china for allowing snowden to slip away and in a rare move is talking about the fallout in blunt terms. >> comes to our relations with hong kong and china that we see this as a setback in terms of their efforts to build, the chine chinese, their efforts to build mutual trust. >> reporter: relations with russia now being tested as well. >> we hope the russians will recognize the request over the united states particularly given over the last two years we have sent seven prisoners back they requested. >> reporter: the legal issues are overshadowed by politics. some say this has become an international embarrassment for the u.s. as snowden continues to hide out the white house believes in russia. >> if they've treated snowden almost as a friendly ambassador or special guest it's a way of saying look we're an independent
actor in global affairs. we stand up to big, bad america. >> reporter: u.s. officials say they expect the russians to look at all their options and expel snowden so that he can be brought back here to the united states. meanwhile officials remain deeply concerned about the leaks of classified information and about the potential for additional leaks. kate? >> dan, thanks so much. it's amazing that we don't know where edward snowden is. >> we'll just keep asking the question until we get an answer. a sweeping immigration bill is one step closer to passage. beefed up border security helped it to pass in the senate. will the house approve it? cnn's chief congressional correspondent dana bash is live from tush tush. the tug-of-war between keep them out and keep them in. can there be compromise dey that? >> if you look at what happened in the senate the answer would be yes. it was probably the most consequential vote, two-thirds of the senate voted yes
signaling support for an immigration bill with beefed up border security, a classic case of sweetening the pot to lure supporters. the sponsors got 15 gop senators to vote with all democrats saying they were doubling the number of border agents and much more, underscoring the fact that illegal immigrants will not get on a path to citizenship until the border is deemed secure. many republicans don't buy it, called a smoke screen and that goes especially for republicans in the house. listen to what freshman florida republican trey readel told us. >> reporter: i think of the senate, guys in smoking jackets and deliberating over ideas. in the house we need to show the american people here's what we're going to do and why it's great for this country. >> reporter: he's a rare republican in the house, he's got a relatively high percentage of latino voters in his district but as you heard he told us the
senate immigration bill is dead on arrival. that says it all when it comes to the fate of the comprehensive bill. it's expected at the end of the week. >> that's what i meant by compromise and it's not looking so good. hopefully there's more leadership back there. thanks, dana. this morning, investors are hoping for a better day on wall street, after stocks suffered a heavy loss. the dow is coming off 140-point drop in the s&p 500 and nasdaq were both down more than 1%. christine romans of course is here with what more question expect and can you make sense of this in. >> i can. it's another rotten day, eight been a rotten several days. quite frankly you've got stocks in turmoil and major stock averages down 3%, 4%, 5%, over the past five days and that's going to translate into your 401(k), no question if you have stocks in your 401(k) like you should your 401(k) has lost some value. i want to give perspectives.
stocks, the s&p 500 still up 10% so you should be positive in your retirement accounts. the past four days you've taken a huge hit. you have the fed signaled it's going to stop injecting so much money into the economy and that really, really scared big, big investors, but there's one big fed official yesterday who said they're acing like hogs, the wall street pros, they smell any sense of change and go after it too aggressively. this morning futures look like they're up 60 points. >> we've got two things on its face seem confusing. the economy is still improving. you have this problem, this issue in the stock market. how concerned should people be in the stock sell-off? >> the economy is improving but that's why the fed is going to have the room to stop -- so it's this funny, strange situation. >> transition period. >> exactly, kate. so you could see, they have signs of economic strength, that's going to be bad for the stock market.
we're going to get housing data today. i expect this housing data is going to be strong, it will show we'll see home sales improve, home prices improve, that should be great. i'm not sure how the stock market is going to react though. >> it's a funny place we're in. >> dow futures up 60 points. >> thanks. so the markets not so hot but the rest of the country incredibly hot. coast to coast, hot, sticky weather because we have the first heat wave of the summer, for some part of the country it might be downright dangerous. let's bring in indra petersons with more on the sweltering temperature. what is this and what does it mean? >> we say summer and suddenly it's over the top, we don't get any between period. new york we have heat advisories out there, temperatures only in the mid-90s. the humidity makes it so hot. you want to stay indoors where there's air conditioning, not go out in the peak sun hours and
drink plenty of water. the average is 82, ten degrees above normal and you add the humidity you're talking about warm conditions. the reason is a bermuda high, why, because it's over bermuda. the dome of high pressure brings all the warm temperature and filters it up to the northeast. it's not the only thing that brings the warm temperature but brings moisture up the seaboard as well. in the afternoons we get the thunderstorms popping. hint of relief toward the second half of the week. otherwise look at the temperatures, it's not just the northeast or the southeast. we're talking about the dry heat on the west coast, 125 in death valley by the end of the weekend so tough all around summer. >> i don't have plans to go to death valley. >> not a good time of year to travel there generally. >> thanks so much. there's obviously a lot of news developing at this hour, straight to michaela. >> good morning to you at home. afghan forces already put to the
test, a group of attackers storming an entry point to the presidential palace in kabul. afghan police say the group was subdued and only the attackers were wounded in the confrontation. international forces handed over security operations to afghans a week ago. turns out the irs was targeting both ends of the political spectrum. sandra levin says the term progressives was on the agency's tax exempt status screening list. he says the inappropriate practice continued until last month. the treasury inspector general previously disclosed the irs targeted just conservative group. 23 boy scouts sent to five different new hampshire hospitals after lightning struck their camp. emergency officials told our affiliate wmur, the boys took shelter under a tent with poles. six suffered burns to their chest but all 23 of them will be okay. the chicago blackhawks are
the new stanley cup champions. chicago rallied in the final minutes and beat the boston bruins by a 3-2 score last night in game six of the finals, two goals within 17 seconds were enough to put the blackhawks over the top, patrick kane won the conn smythe trophy. four different alleged shoplifters were caught on camera stealing from an orlando supermarket including putting a carton of eggs in his pants. the shop manager recognizes one of the suspects. look at what happens next in this dramatic video. >> i just, just give me one second, this is a guy that stole the other day. this is the guy that stole the other day. no, no, no. you're going on the floor. tell my brother to call the
police. i don't care. i don't care. i got your face when you take the meat, when you take the eggs. >> i took no eggs. >> he was arrested and charged with petty theft. he pleaded no contest and served five days in jail and given a $273 fine and warning not to go near that store which i don't think he will because that guy -- >> he had done it a couple of days before and put another respected robber in a full nelson. i had chris explain what a full nelson is. >> i think these are jujitsu moves. you see how he puts his legs around him. >> very strange way. you got to put them somewhere i guess. >> i'm impressed. >> the guy was charged and arrested so it was the right guy, very good. another interesting thing after we come back after the

zimmerman second-degree murder trial. judge will decide if 911 calls zimmerman made before martin was killed could be brought into evidence. let's go to cnn's george howell covering it all from sanford, florida, this morning. already some surprises here, george, huh? >> reporter: chris, good morning. absolutely. good morning to you at home. we want to warn you that you're about to hear some strong language from one of the prosecutors in this case and there's the matter of the knock knock joke that left the defense attorney to later apologize. opening statements in the case against george zimmerman began with words we wouldn't even air on tv. >> [ bleep ] punks, these [ bleep ], they always get away. those were the words in that grown man's mouth as he followed in the dark a 17-year-old boy. >> reporter: with martin's
family visibly shaken by what they heard, prosecutor john guy spoke directly to jurors using the very words zimmerman used when he called the non-emergency line before shooting and killing trayvon martin. for 30 minutes he challenged zimmerman's account of what happened. >> that defendant at the same time was upright walking around preparing. preparing to tell law enforcement why it was he had just profiled, followed and murdered an unarmed teenager. >> reporter: in still another unusual move, attorney john west opened for the defense with a knock knock joke. >> knock knock? who's there? george zimmerman. george zimmerman who? all right, good, you're on the jury. nothing? that's funny.
>> reporter: how that played out with the jury is anybody's guess. the one thing that became very clear, though, west wanted to cover a lot of ground. for more than two hours he laid out zimmerman's case with pictures in great detail, overkill in the view of cnn legal analyst sunny hostin. >> you're supposed to give a road map but they gave so much more than that and i think it was too much. >> reporter: the state called the first of its witnesses in the trial, among them, the non-emergency dispatcher, george zimmerman called for help. >> how come you don't or didn't say, you know, order the person to stop and don't follow and anything like that? why did you phrase it like you phrased it? >> the reason we do that because we're directly liable if we give a direct order so we always try to give general basic not commands but just suggestions. >> reporter: so court gets under way a little earlier today, 8:30 a.m. eastern time. as judge deborah nelson decides
whether to allow previous 911 calls that george zimmerman placed, whether to allow those into this trial. the prosecution wants them. the defense wants to ban them so we'll have to see how all that plays out. >> all right, george, thank you very much for reporting. we'll be back to you. kate, this story is just going to get more and more as this case goes on, very different stories in the case. >> one of them the more interesting first days of opening argument that i've really heard in a very long time. let's talk much more about this with our cnn legal analyst sunny hostin who has followed this case very closely and was also in the courtroom and she of course is joining me now from sanford, florida. good morning, sunny. >> good morning. good morning, kate. >> it's like a tale of two opening statements. it was really amazing the different approaches that the prosecution and the defense took. let's talk about both and start with the prosecution, very passionate, very emotional. what was the strategy there? and how was it received by the jury, do you think? >> i think it was extremely
well. it was a textbook flawless opening statement. i think law school professors will be using it in their law school classes as an example of how this is supposed to be done. there was a road map. he was succinct, he was powerful, and i was looking at the jury. i've got to tell you, they were riveted, all of them. they did not move from their seats. they were staring at john guy, and he was sort of this new secret weapon because he'd been in the courtroom, i've been here since jury selection. i had never really heard much from him so we were surprised when we heard he would be given the opening and he was just flawless. >> then the question is the defense. we heard that knock knock joke in george's piece and more of a dry kind of clinical delivery getting through a lot of evidence. how did the jury take that? >> you know, i think that they were bored. i think the knock knock joke offended some of them. i could see their faces, and it
wasn't textbook. it was sort of rambling. while you're supposed to give some sort of road map you don't throw everything and the kitchen sink in your opening statement. that perhaps is something for closing argument. i couldn't follow it and i've tried a lot of cases and i've covered a lot of cases. i can only imagine how this jury felt. from looking at them, kate, i could even see some of them nodding off. we're talking about almost three hours of an opening. while this is a second-degree mufrd case, remember the prosecution spoke in about 32 minutes so it was really in stark contrast, and i would say that the state won the opening battle in this case. >> from the defense's perspective especially the length of time the defense went on in the opening markets is there a strategy or a misstep? they prepare so much for these opening arguments. >> well it was certainly chock-full of their theory. they gave a lot of information to this jury. i don't think the presentation was good, that was the problem.
perhaps their theory was let me lay out our entire, entire case but again it just didn't work. i mean, i was there in the courtroom watching and when that knock knock joke, it's like the knock knock joke heard round the world came out and fell flat you couldn't hear the groan in the courtroom but could you feel it. >> we'll see if day two goes any better for the defense and really what happens in sanford, florida, this morning. sunny, great to see you. >> a little bit of style versus substance. the defense believes on the facts they have a strong case so you lay it out in great detail. the question did they do it effectively. >> different to play to emotion on the defense side. a different investigation, aaron hernandez, the patriots player, we keep hearing his name connected intensely with this murder prosecution, this investigation of this case. how come police haven't arrested

happened? >> one of the biggest upsets in wimbledon history, nadal was the fifth seed this year at wimbledon and he lost in straight sets to the 135th ranked player in the world, steve darcis. it's the first time he's ever lost in the first round of a grand slam event. shocking developments the first day of wimbledon. >> i hope he's not hurt, i hope it was just the better man on that day. the nba draft, a funny anecdote you have about it. what's going on there? >> it's thursday. one of this year's top picks is having trouble deciding what to wear. er in nerlens noel's options, a blue suit with a lime green pocket square, and then you got the nice slick silver suit or the sharp blue pin stripe.
cast your vote at nba.com. i was going to go with the silver. we have four of us, three suits. i go with silver. >> bit low. >> i go blue, blue. >> i go with the lime green. andy and i did. >> andy who knew you could cover fashion as well. >> i'll try that tomorrow, lime green. andy thank you very much. always love "the bleacher report." coming up, the u.s. does not seem to know where the nsa leaker is but a more troubling question has been raised, why isn't anyone helping america? senator john mccain will join us live. and also coming up southern chef paula deen lost another major endorsement and in a "new day" endorsement her sons bobby and jamie are here to talk over the backlash over racial slurs that have taken a big toll over their mother's career. limited rs for his small business. can i get the smith contract, please? thank you. that's three new paper shredders.

funny, funny but not funny to paula deen's family, that's why her boys will be on the show. we're kicking off 30 minutes of commercial free news. the political gut check, all the news coming straight out of washington. >> a big meeting on immigration today and the irs scandal has come back into view. turns out not just conservative groups were targeted so we'll figure out what this means. >> let's turn to john king, cnn's chief national correspondent to break through all of this stuff. the irs scandal i started thinking that was one scandal moving to the back bumper of washington scandals but clearly not now. if there are equal opportunity targeting does that make it better or worse, john? >> it depends who you ask, kate. democrats are happy to see this information out there, happy in the context of saying ah-ha, they weren't just targeting tea party groups, they were targeting people with progressive, blue or left of center labels in their names. they're saying this was not an agency just targeting the tea party.
it was overwhelmed with the applications for tax exempt groups and developed a targeting system that was not appropriate but it was not partisan. republicans say wait a minute we still think the tea party groups were overly targeted. this will go on for a bit no question. >> john i got a conspiracy theory. help me out, i believe this is one of the only issues where left and right are on the same side because neither wants the group looked by the irs, this is how dark money comes into politics and what it's all about that the irs should be looking at all of the groups aggressively because you could make a great argument they shouldn't exist because they put money unaccounted for into politics, stealing power from the people. that's my theory. >> the theory is valid, a lot of this is the fallout from the supreme court. you can't regulate corporate donations so more of these groups are forming and the irs says it was overwhelmed. lot of people say if this was going on with progressive, with
blue, names like that, why didn't we hear that in the first wave? congress specifically asked the inspector general of the treasury department and the internal revenue service to investigate whether conservative groups were being targeted. imagine if your house was on fire and your neighbor's house was on fire and you call the fire department and they show up and put out your fire but don't put out your neighbor's fire because he didn't call. one would think they would have for context purposes or a little bell would have gone off, should we look at the other groups? you understand the way this has played out. we're finding out they were targeted on both sides. this is a hard time why people have a hard time putting government and common sense in the same sentence. also today at the white house a big meeting, immigration will be one of the big topics. we've watched these meetings happen over and over again when there's a big vote coming up. do you think on immigration it's going to help the prospects of this getting through or should the president stay out of it? >> look, it's been four months since the president sat down
with the bipartisan done depressional leadership and as someone who has been in this town for a long time, the toxic environment goes back to the clinton administration, some say more so. i don't think that's a bad thing. any time the president can sit down with the democratic leadership and republican leadership it's a good thing. he'll hear from the republican leadership mr. president, back off, don't be out there so publicly. if you look at speaker boehner and leader mcconnell they don't want to give the president everything he wants but they want to get all the criticism from the latino community on the republican party off their back headed into the next election cycle so their message to the president is likely going to be we're trying to kind of help you be more quiet because when you're out in public it fires up our conservative base. >> john king great to see you, thanks. >> always good to hear lawmakers trying to hide from the people they represent. >> sometimes what's good for politics is not always good for the people. ♪ do you hear that music?

"the hartford kourrant" republicans trying to stop a four-cent gas increase said to kick in july 1. connecticut already has some of the highest prices and taxes in the nation. >> christine romans has the business news we need. what is going to happen with the stock market? >> it's going to be up a little bit but it's been a bad week. the dow, nasdaq, s&p 500 fell about 1% yesterday. an apple settlement means cash refunds. apple is doling out money to
parents whose kids downloaded games like angry birds and racked up big, big billings buying game extras without permission. a new report from lps delinquency and foreclosure rates are at a new post crisis low and that's good. this is one of the circumstances where we plik low. >> christine thanks so much. finally indpra petersons is in the weather center with what you need to know. >> it was a tough day in the midwest, they saw heavy rain, strong thunderstorms with very strong winds, gusts as high as 75 miles pefr hour, with the stationary front in place wll look for another day of that. the severe weather threat from the dakotas and into new england. heat, that is the story, we are feeling it especially the north east talking about heat advisories in new york, 90 degree temperatures, that's not hot enough. you add the humidity and we add
the temperatures into the mid-90s and we talked about triple digitments on the west side. >> still hot, indra, thank you. we're at the top of the hour which of course means it's time which of course means it's time for the top news. -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com >> we're following all the appropriate legal channels to make sure the rule of law is observed. >> this morning, did we lose him? edward snowden now m.i.a., his final destination unclear. why can't the u.s. get anyone to help? "new day" exclusive, paula deen's sons speaking out for the first time since the scandal surrounding their mother erupted. what do they say about her admitted use of racial slurs? and the hunt for the red panda. how exactly did rusty the panda escape the national zoo, inside the furry fugitive's daring escape. >> your "new day" starts right now.

from the family has spoken out since her poorly received apology. she has lost another lucrative sponsorship. can they stem the tide? life is good for lebron, the nba champ except he almost loses his head, oh my goodness, john berman joins us to plain why he gets the "new day" award of the day. >> good thing he has cat like reflexes. the kremlin is denying that snowden is on russian soil and called u.s. accusations he's being harbored there baseless. it was believed he was hiding out in a moscow airport as the obama administration is calling out russia and other countries they believe might be trying to give snowden asylum. atika shubert has the latest. >> the foreign minister insisted snowden has not crossed into immigration.
it may mean he's at the airport but we simply do not know at this point. where in the world is edward snowden. this morning, no one seems to know. he's likely somewhere in the moscow airport's transit terminal caught in legal limbo not technically in russia, so not technically russia's problem but snowden is turning into a very big problem indeed. he was expected on an air flight to havana, cuba, but as a planeload of journalists found out on the 13-hour flight found out too late his seat went empty ecuador may take him in but diplomats haven't said they'll allow him entry. this as u.s. has blistering statements on russia, ecuador and anyone else thinking of taking him in. for now we believe he waits. his global journey aided by jewel an assange, founder of wikileaks, a man whose own legal troubles have led him to seek refuge in the ecuador embassy in
london for more than a year. in a telephone presser, assange says a wikileaks staffer was traveling with snowden. >> the u.s. secretary of state called edward snowden a traitor. edward snowden is not a traitor. he is not a spy. he is a whistleblower. he told the public an important truth. >> assange said wikileaks paid for snowden's flights and legal counsel but would not say where he is, only that he is "healthy, safe and in high spirits." >> right now moscow airport is crawling with journalists but specifically there is a transit hotel at the terminal there where snowden was believed to have been staying. it's a tiny little place, a capsule hotel, each room has room for a small single bed and
that's about it but still no sightings of snowden. >> atika, thank you very much. kate? as the mystery of snowden's whereabouts deepens, the state department says diplomats are in talks with the russians and officials have warned of consequences for both china and russia if snowden escapes. cnn's dan lothian is at the white house with more. what are they saying this morning, dan? >> reporter: there is a sense to get snowden on u.s. soil especially since he said he plans to release additional documents and this revelation from a hong kong paper that snowden took the job as a contractor earlier this year with the sole purpose of collecting proof on secret u.s. surveillance programs. the edward snowden cat and mouse game has become a diplomatic headache for the white house and president obama for the first time in public is putting pressure on any country trying to assist the nsa leaker. >> what we know is we're
following all the appropriate legal channel and working with various other countries to make sure the rule of law is observed. >> reporter: the obama administration is frustrated with hong kong and china for allowing snowden to slip away and in a rare move is talking about the fallout in blunt terms. >> comes to our relations with hong kong and china that we see this as a setback in terms of their efforts to build, the chinese, their efforts to build mutual trust. >> reporter: relations with russia now being tested as well. >> we hope the russians will recognize the request over the united states particularly given over the last two years we have sent seven prisoners back they requested. >> reporter: the legal issues are overshadowed by politics. some say this has become an international embarrassment for the u.s. as snowden continues to hide out the white house believes in russia. >> if they've treated snowden almost as a friendly ambassador or special guest it's a way of
saying look we're an independent actor in global affairs. we stand up to big, bad america. >> reporter: while the u.s. remains focused on russia, the white house is suspicious of china's role in allowing snowden to leave long hong kong. white house aides won't talk about the repercussions of this. >> dan lothian thanks so much. an immigration reform bill looks like it may make it out of the senate on the strength of a bipartisan compromise steeply beefing up border security and maintaining a path to citizenship. it takes two houses to make a law and the house of representatives seems to be a question mark. dana bash joins us live from capitol hill. dana, what do we know? >> exactly how you put it. it is a question mark in the house but 67 senators including 15 republicans, a pretty high enough voted yes on this key test vote signaling an immigration reform but the issue in the goc-led house is that
many republicans say that they simply don't buy the underlying promise of the senate legislation, that the border will be secured before any illegal immigrant can get on a path to citizenship and gop leadership sources in the house anticipate when lawmakers go home for july 44th recess they could face angry constituents that may be reminiscent of the summer of 009. remember when obama care turned town halls into heated events and 2007 for a time immigration reform affected the republican presidential race temporarily hurting the eventual nominee john mccain. considering most republicans are in districts that have solid by red electorate and relatively low percentage of latino voters some voters worry it could scare republicans away from anything that gives illegal immigrants a way to get citizenship. >> let's bring in senator john mccain, republican from arizona, member of the senate foreign
affairs committee. sir, first, let me welcome you to "new day" and thank you for coming on the show. >> i'm glad to be on and congratulations on your new show. i'm sure you'll all do very well despite your presence. >> all right, all right. appreciate it, senator. always a pleasure to have you. >> thank you. >> now let me start with immigration. >> sure. >> people see this either as reform is about keeping people out or reform is about letting people in. where do you see a chance for compromise here? >> i think that first of all the legislation concerning beefed up border security removes any validity to the argument that border security is not sufficient. i mean, this is not only tough, it is well over sufficient. we'll be the most militarized border since the fall of the berlin wall so that's why i think this amendment was very important. second of all, it is -- are we going to let a de facto amnesty
of 11 million people living in the shadows in this country or are we going to see that path forward and that path forward is clearly one that gives people a legal status but then a long, tough, hard road to citizenship. i mean 10, 13 years longer with fines, pay back taxes, learn english, get behind everyone else. this is a border security measure which i think should suffice to satisfy any delightic and te is a way forward, a tough way forward so that we can resolve this and bring 11 million people out of the shadows. >> all right, so it's going to take some more politicking there, senator. we wish you all with that. people wants this to move on. >> let's move on to a different topic that could be an embarrassment for the country. what's going on with edward snowden. has anybody given you any good information about the u.s. knowing where this man is? >> no, but it is well-known that he's in russia, and it's
reminiscent of the days of the cold war when you hear a russian spokesman saying that he's not in russia, when every shred of evidence indicates that he is. look, we've got to start dealing with vladimir putin in a realistic fashion for what he is an old kgb colonel that dreams of the days of the russian empire and he continues to stick his thumb in our eye in a broad variety of ways, most importantly to me, of course, and should be to the world is their continued support of bashar al assad and the massacre taking place in syria, not to mention a number of other areas that russia basically showing us a total lack of respect. by the way, this sends a message to the iranians that they have to be wondering whether we are very serious will saying that they can't achieve nuclear weapons status. >> when you look at hong kong/my
in a, when you look at russia, doesn't this situation make america look weak, like we've lost our mojo? >> it does, and when you withdraw to fortress america, when you believe in light footprints, when you show the world you're leading from behind, these are the consequences of american leadership. as you know i spent a lot of time in the middle east. every one of these leaders say where is american leadership? where is american leadership? we need to show more leadership and that does not mean concentration but steadfast to many principles many presidents since the cold war and before have stood for that the rest of the world will respect. >> do you see this as a direct relation to president obama's friendlier approach to foreign policy that we have been made to look weak, like our resolve is not what it used to be? >> i think what it shows is that the united states says things
and then they don't do things. the best example was the syrian use of chemical weapons. the president said that was a "game changer," that it would be unacceptable and now what have we done? we're going to send light weapons to the freedom fighters there against tanks, helicopters and scud missiles. and so i think the problem is that most now especially china and russia don't believe we're serious. >> where do you believe this all leads? >> reporter: i think it should lead to a reevaluation of our relations particularly with russia and china, a more realistic approach to to nations acting in their own spheres of influence in a provocative fashion. it means we should stop the sequestration, which is decimating our military to an alarming degree and we should carry out the promises and commitments that we make, and it doesn't mean threats, but it
means that the united states is still the only nation in the world that the rests of world can depend on, and these, and china and russia both in their own way are trying to assert spheres of influence which are not good for the things we stand for and believe in. >> what is your advice to the president? what do you think he should be doing? >> the first thing i would do is go to the oval office and say i've told vladimir putin that we want this guy back. he's broken american laws and under every treaty and agreement that we have, he should be returned to the united states. on a larger scale i would say we're not going to let basher al assad stay in power. that would be the greatest victory for iran that could happen in 25 years and we are going to stand by our allies and we're going to help people who are struggling for freedom. >> last two questions, dining the u.s. gets snowed. back, do you think we have the juice to do that with our allies and do you ever expect to see
american boots on the ground in syria? >> never in syria except in a pacific post-war kaes where we have to internationally go in and security the caches of chemical weapons. i don't know whether they will respond or not. putin's behavior has been with disdain or even contempt of the united states of america so we'll have to see. he has to understand that this will affect our relations in a broad number of ways. it means a very realistic approach to our relations with both of those countries. >> after everything that's happened did you think in your lifetime you would see it happen again where russia and china seem to be aligned against the interests of the united states? >> yes, i did, because i have known about vladimir putin for a long, long time. he is, as i said, an old kgb
colonel apparatchik that has disdain for democracy and the things we stand in. if he sees a situation he'll take advantage of it. anybody that takes somebody's super bowl ring has got to be not exactly like us. >> an ununassistant shated allegation, senator. we don't know what happened with the ring but it is a window of perspective on this. senator mccain thank you for joining us on "new day." appreciate it. >> only john mccain. it's un-american, senator, it's un-american. this summer is getting off to a hot start, a heat wave hitting much of the country. the latest from indra petersons. >> especially in the northeast, we're talking about heat advisories where temperatures will feel like they're in the mid-90s. average temperatures should be about 10, 15 degrees cooler so today another hot one that will last another day or two, relief toward the second half of the
week. it's called a bermuda high. we're looking at the warm air going from the southeast to the northeast. it's not just bringing in the warm air, it's also bringing in the humidity, all that moisture cruising up the northeast and for that reason we're talking about afternoon thunderstorms from the northeast down to the southeast. on the west coast it's drier but temperatures moving up to 120 to 125 degrees, the only benefit of getting up at 2:00 a.m.. >> it was still warm up when we got up. >> it's still hot. >> you know it will be a bad or hot day total. there say lot of news developing at this hour, let's get straight to michaela for the latest. >> good morning to everybody at home. we are still in suspense over some major supreme court cases including two on same-sex marriage and one on voting rights. the high court will convene to denounce more decisions. which of these six remaining
rulings will they reveal? we'll find out at cnn eastern. the targeting of political groups by the irs was more known. democrat ek senator says new liberal groups were also singles out with the terms progressive on the screening list. that practice ended last month. day two of the george zimmerman trial, this morning lawyer also make their case about zimmerman's called to 911 not related to his confrontation with trayvon martin following monday's bizarre opening statements during which a prosecutor used profanity while coating zimmerman and the defense used a knock knock joke that fell quite flat. voters in massachusetts head to the polls to decide who takes over john kerry's democratic seat, ed markey taking on formy navy s.e.a.l. gabrielle gomez.
rusty the red panda is back home at washington's national zoo. for a time boy he was the toast of the town on the streets and online. here's athena jones. >> reporter: pandamonium in this washington, d.c., neighborhood. all to capture this little guy, a ten-pound red panda named rusty. the bamboo eating animal just shy of a year old escape from the international zoo between sunday night and monday morning. >> they're great climbers, they can go way out on the branch. >> reporter: they launched a code green alert, like an all points bulletin for annals. the search rusty ended here a few blocks from the zoo. zoo officials found him high up in a tree.
eric alder found him unhurt. by midday there were six dedicated accounts posting this one "sorry national zoo, it's just such a beautiful day i'm hitting the town." another "let's meet up." rusty is the latest critter to go on the lam and tweet about it. remember the cobra that went missing from the bronx zoo in 2001 and the pea cook that flew the central coup and later returned home on his own, all proof that well it's a jungle out there. athena jones, cnn, washington. >> reporting to the interweb they are native to the eastern himalayas, southwestern china. they look liereally cute.
he said i looked like a red panda this morning. >> cute and attractive. >> ooh. >> that was kind of a good one. >> how are you at climbing trees? >> very good at anything. >> i'm glad he's home, rusty. coming up next on "new day" a "new day" exclusive, paula deen's sons are here live to open up the controversy that could cost their mother her career, the first time family members are speaking out with an apology. people on twitter on twitter saying kate bolduan looks like a panda. that's not kate bolduan, that's nancy pelosi. the red panda is very attractive. it was a compliment. i want to make things more secure.

another deal w smithfield foods. the latest fallout from deen's admitted use of the "n" word. we'll speak with her two sons in a moment. first pamela brown joins us. >> paula deen suffered a tremendous blow in the court of public opinion. the food network has already pulled the plug on her three shows and she's lost a big endorsement deal. >> i'm going to wrap it in bacon and deep fry it. >> reporter: celebrity chef paula deen is now bringing home a lot less bacon. first the food network announced it would not renew our contract. lucrative deal with smithfield foods has been canned. >> i want to apologize to everybody. >> reporter: deen issued back-to-back video apologize after friday after readily to
using the "n" word in the past, it surfaced in a deposition stemming from a racial and sexual harassment lawsuit filed by a former employee. an attorney sks if she ever used the "n" words, she admits to describe a black man who robbed her at gunpoint in the 1980s when she worked in a bank. she is sure she uszed it on other occasions in the past but couldn't remember the context. she wanted to plan a southern plantation themed parties with black servers. she spoke at a "new york times" event last year. >> black folks played such an integral part in our lives. they were like our family, and we didn't see ourselves as being prejudiced. i think we are a all presentjud against some or the other and i
think black people feel the same prejudice that white people feel. >> reporter: another comment about a black employee raised some eyebrows. >> i have a young man in my life and his name was hollis johnson and he's black. >> come out here. we can't see you standing against that dark board. >> despite the backlash, support for the southern chef is flowing in from fans, several flocked to her restaurants over the weekend, some have threatened to boycott the food network over her firing. >> she has apologized. >> reporter: will the apologies be enough to keep her stuff on store shelves. >> qvc may be dropping, walmart. it seems as though the food network may have started a dm know effect for paula. >> reporter: deen has already lost about $2.5 million by being
dropped by the food network and stands to lose $5.5 million if the company she conduct with severs their relationship with her. she have the fourth highest earning chef in the world earning $17 million just in 2012. if deen improves her image perhaps another food channel will pick her up. she has very loyal fans. >> pamela, thank you very much. joining us for an exclusive interview are paula deen's sons, jamie and bobby dean. thank you very much for being here, fellows. appreciate you taking the opportunity. >> good morning, chris. >> good morning, chris, thank you for giving us the opportunity. >> let's deal about this head on. what do you say to people who believe that your mother is a racist? >> that's simply not true. our mother was under oath asked in a deposition if she, to pour
over her entire life and admit whether or not she had ever heard or used this word and it broke her heart to have to answer truthfully and say yes that they had but the important thing is for people to know that is not her heart. it is certainly not the home that we were raised in. we were raised in a family with love and of faith and i house where god lived and neither one of our parents ever taught us to be bigoted towards any other person for any reason, and this is so saddening to me because our mother is one of the most compassionate, good-hearted empathetic people that you'd ever meet and these accusations are very hurtful to her and it's very sad and frankly i'm
disgusted by the entire thing because it began as extortion and it's become character assassination and our mother is not the picture of this being painted of her. >> let me tell you when i was a young man in 1975, henry aaron was my hero, in 19 4 he broke the home run record. before i had my tonsils taken out, i was 7 years old, and my parents gave me hank aaron pajamas and my mom and dad told the story that the challenges the hammer faced in pursuit of his record. they told me he's a challenge. this is a lesson i've carried throughout my life of inclusion and to treat everyone fairly and by their character and own merit.
under no circumstances should you ever judge anybody for any other reason. >> jamie in the deposition your mother says she taught you that there can be acceptable uses of the "n" word, not to use it in a mean way but you can use it sometimes. is that true? >> that's completely false. i've never heard that before in my life. the first time i'd ever heard that was just now, chris. my mother would never teach bobby and i anything other -- we're obviously a product of our environment. we care very much about our community. i'm raising two boys now. this is ridiculous, completely absurd to think there is an environment of racism in our business and it's really disrespectful to the people we work with. we have strong educated men and women of character that have been with us for 5, 10, 15, 20 years, to think they would allow themselves to be in this position is simply baloney.
it's ridiculous. >> bobby what do you think your mother meant when she said that in the deposition? >> i have no idea, chris. she has never said those words to me. my mother has never talked to me that it was acceptable to say terrible things or use vile language against other people or to use words as a weapon. i've never heard that so i have no idea. >> i'm giving you a chance to deal with the lawsuit in the deposition that came out of it. one of the reasons this has become so difficult for your mom these are her own words and own admissions that she's making here that she used the "n" word inappropriately, the story about the wedding and how people should be dressed there that is slave reminiscent. these are her words. does it make it difficult to
apologize and back away from it? >> they were given separately. mine was separate from my mother's and brothers. we were not sitting in on each other's depositions. i did not hear my mom give this deposition and i don't know exactly what she may have meant. >> these are her words, not from bobby and i. we do not have lies in us. the number one thing that we cannot say to someone is disequal and that's why when people ask us the truth we tell the truth regardless of the outcome. truth is big in our family. >> i can tell you this, that word, that horrifying, terrible word that exists and i abhor it coming from any person vocabula mother's or brother's vocabulary. we were not raised in a home that we were raised in.
>> one of the questions will be how real is this apology? is this sorry you got caught or being truly deeply sorry. what can you say to make people believe your mother is coming out in the right place when she apologizes? >> a million times i've heard that people love mom because she's a real person and obviously who she is on television is really who she is in real life, and mom's sincere in all things that she does and we've always tried to take challenges in our life and turn them into positives. person's character is not built through luxury but through challenge and if mom says she's sorry about these things it's certainly that something she was just gave us a different time when my mother was growing growing up. there's been leaps and bounds
generationally that has helped the chasm that we have of racism in this country. my prayer to god is my boys will never have to deal with it and it's not anything bobby and i ever supported or would you know condone on any level. if my mom says she's sorry you can bet she's sorry. we're not here to stem the tide, we're here to speak out for our mother's character and our mother is a truly wonderful people inclusive of all people and spends a lot of time and energy to help those people that are challenged. 25 years ago when we started our business we had nothing and now we've given the opportunity to lep non-profits across this whole country and it means a tremendous amount to us and do good things in our life and the power we've been given through our media career is important to us and we're just here to say that this environment of racism
that's been spoken about could not be further from the truth. we've never hired mental managers. all of our managers are promoted from within and we had people 5, 10, 15, 20 years we see every day at work that are fine people that would never put up with that treatment. >> any chance others come forward and say i've heard her same the same things, it was like that on the show, those types of allegations? >> i can't imagine that happening but other than, what do you think, chris, you think people are going to take this opportunity to come out and try to get their piece now? we have so many friends that have come forward and spoken out for our family as much like as many people would compliment you times ten would complain about we've been in the service business for 25 years and so
many people enjoy it but there's always one person that's going to be most vocal for one reason or another. what are the chances of somebody else coming out behind this? i would say pretty good. it's part of the price you pay when you have a high profile business or the television sws or whatever that mom might do. >> you're saying it would be an opportunist, not somebody speaking the truth. let me ask you this, and please each take an opportunity to respond to it. your mother admitted these things so it's not like she's been chased after whether it's true or not, she admitted them in her own words. the question is what will paula deen do it coming forward. what does your mother intend to do herself to make amends and try to move forward? >> i think she's going to continue to be truthful.
she was in a deposition under oath. our mother is going to do nothing but answer the truth. we can look in the mirror and know who we are and how we were raised and the character of my parents. our mother is not the picture that's being painted. life's not fair. it's inaccurate what people are saying about her and the people that snow know us know this is untruthful and i think in the end it will work itself out because all the truth will come out at the end of this one, what it is, is really an extortion case. >> mom has admitted to her transgressions and apologized from some of those. coming from a high profile family there are opportunists and my mom submitted and apologized and as a person what
more can you could? >> jamie, bobby, i know this is difficult. i appreciate you coming on and i wish the best to you and your mother to make amends in this situation. >> i'm happy to be here this morning, chris. >> we're happy to be here and happy to speak for mom. thank you, chris. i appreciate you being on "new day". check you theous on twitter and face book, or go to newdaycnn.com. the trial of george zimmerman is under way in florida, why his defense attorney is apologizing for part of his opening statements. lebron james and a close call the heat celebrate with a victory paid to miami but who knew the rah participate could get dangerous. out there owning it. the ones getting involved and staying engaged.

or offensive? i want to warn you at home you're about to hear some strong language. opening statements in the case against george zimmerman began with words we wouldn't even air on tv. >> [ bleep ] punks, these [ bleep ], they always get away. those were the words in that grown man's mouth as he followed in the dark a 17-year-old boy. >> reporter: with martin's family visibly shaken by what they heard, prosecutor john guy spoke directly to jurors using the very words zimmerman used when he called the non-emergency line before shooting and killing trayvon martin. for 30 minutes he challenged zimmerman's account of what happened. >> that defendant at the same time was upright walking around preparing. preparing to tell law enforcement why it was he had just profiled, followed and
murdered an unarmed teenager. >> reporter: in still another unusual move, attorney john west opened for the defense with a knock knock joke. >> knock knock? who's there? george zimmerman. george zimmerman who? all right, good, you're on the jury. nothing? that's funny. >> reporter: how that played out with the jury is anybody's guess. the one thing that became very clear, though, west wanted to cover a lot of ground. for more than two hours he laid out zimmerman's case with pictures in great detail, overkill in the view of cnn legal analyst sunny hostin. >> you're supposed to give a road map but they gave so much more than that and i think it was too much. >> reporter: the state called the first of its witnesses in the trial, among them, the non-emergency dispatcher, george
zimmerman called for help. >> how come you don't or didn't say, you know, order the person to stop and don't follow and anything like that? why did you phrase it like you phrased it? >> the reason we do that because we're directly liable if we give a direct order so we always try to give general basic not commands but just suggestions. >> reporter: so court starts a little earlier this morning, 8:30 a.m.. they'll wrap up a hearing and at 9:00 a.m. we'll expect to see the jury in the courtroom and hear from more prosecution witnesses and hear this if there are any more surprises. a lot of news, why we have news anchor michaela pereira for the top of the news. >> and keep you on your toes. >> good morning to you both and at home. russia now says it has nothing to do with nsa leaker edward snowden. the foreign minister says the kremlin has no idea where he is and snowden did not cross the

fashion faux pas, or are you not looking at that, because there's more of an image you can't get out of your head? a streaker, kind of distracting from the dolce and gabana fashion show. big stories today, more confusion this morning over the whereabouts of edward snowden. russia's foreign minister says his country is not cooperating with snowden in any way and he has not crossed the russian border. wikileaks is helping snowden with his plan to seek asylum. julian assange knows where snowden is but he's not telling. atika is live with more. >> the concern isn't just about finding snowden, but it's also about securing what he's believed to have, which is four laptops worth of information that they fear he may still have on the nsa.
where in the world is edward snowden? this morning, no one seems to know. he's likely somewhere in the moscow airport's transit terminal caught in legal limbo. not technically in russia, so not technically russia's problem, but snowden is turning into a very big problem, indeed. he was expected on a flight to cuba, but as a plane load of journalists found out too late, his seat went empty. ecuador may take him in, but diplomats haven't said whether they'll grant him entry, this as the u.s. supplies pressure behind the scenes and in blistering statements on russia, ecuador, and anyone else thinking of taking him in. for now, we believe, he waits. his global journey aided by this man, julian assange, founder of the website wikileaks, a man whose own legal troubles have led him to seek refuge in london for more than a year.
a telephone presser, assange says a wikileaks staffer was traveling with snowden. >> the u.s. secretary of state called edward snowden a traitor. edward snowden is not a traitor. he is not a spy. he is a whistle-blower who has told the public an important truth. >> assange says wikileaks paid for snowden's flights and legal counsel but would not say where he is, only that he is, quote, healthy, safe, and in high spirits. other details, assange says information in those four laptops has already been secured and even before his departure from hong kong was secured to the journalist he leaked that information to, he also says snowden has not been briefed by intelligence officials either in hong kong or upon his arrival in moscow.
>> all right, atika in london, thanks so much. an immigration reform bill that could ride through the senate may also wash out in the house. the bill offers undocumented immigrants a path to citizenship. dana bash joins us live from capitol hill. good morning. >> two-thirds of the senate voted yes with beefed up border securities. sponsors got 15 senators to vote by sweetening the pot, doubling the number of border agents with the underlying promise no immigrant will get on the path to citizenship before the border is secure, but house doesn't buy it. republicans had voted for it because they said it was a promise of security. listen to what he said. >> republicans that voted for it because it's a promise of border security, it's barely a fig leaf after you examine it. republicans on the house side are going to understand this, we don't want to grant a
legalization in exchange for the promise of border security. >> steve king is one of many republicans who strongly disagree with gop supporters who argue passing immigration reform is crucial for humanitarian, economic reasons, but also political reasons to bring latino voters back to the gop. chris, supporters say amnesty is amnesty and warns those who support it should watch for challenges within the gop. >> dana, this is going to be a situation we need compromise. kate? >> all right, thanks so much. joining me now to talk more about this is the democratic leader of the house, nancy pelosi. thanks so much for coming in. >> good morning and congratulations to you and chris and michaela for your show. >> yes, a lot going on in the news today. i want to talk to you about immigration, as dana was just talking about. there was a big vote in the senate, and in the senate they were able to deal with republican concerns by really beefing up the border security element, but the question has not so much been the senate, the
question has always been, what can happen in the house? do you think speaker boehner has the ability to bring along his majority, the republicans, to pass immigration reform? >> well, we have to pass a bill. the senate has spoken in a way, again, a compromise bill that takes us down the path to citizenship, that protects our borders, which is our sovereign responsibility to do, which enables us to have protect our workers, expand our workforce, but in the house, we have been working unbeknownst to most of the world, because it hasn't received all the press. democrats and republicans have been working together in the house of representatives for a number of years on legislation that bears some similarity to what's going on in the senate. had some other features to it. that is a bill that has been presented to the judiciary committee. they have some ideas of their own, some legislation, hopefully, will emerge. i think it's important for the house to have its own bill, but i think there will be a lot of
public pressure if we don't to take up the senate bill. i hope we could have a bill and go to conference and reconcile the differences between the two bills, but we will have a bill. >> i have covered congress for many years, and i've, obviously, spoken to you many times, but on these major kind of compromise pieces of legislation, there's often criticism that speaker boehner can't bring along his party, cannot corral his republicans to stay in line to get the votes. do you think he can this time? >> let's be optimistic about it. the senate has passed a very decisive way, the amendment which will enable the bill to pass, hopefully, in the same decisive way. the people have spoken. one of the reasons this bill is a priority for the republicans in congress and especially in the senate is because in the last election, hispanic voters went 70% for president obama. that sent an eloquent message to them that if they wanted to be relevant as they went down the
road, they had to attract hispanic voters, and not only hispanic but other immigrant voters to our country. so that's why this is important to them now, now they've had an epiphany on the subject, and that's why, hopefully, they'll urge the senate, the house democrats and the house republicans, to work together to get a bill. i'm very proud of the work that the bipartisan, now it's a task force of seven, they don't call themselves a gang, of the work they have done, and i'm optimistic. it takes time. legislation is tough, but i hope that the speaker will allow a bill that can come to the floor that can get a majority of the house of representatives. >> all right. so a little optimism in terms of the immigration push. i want to ask you about the nsa. this cat and mouse chase trying to find edward snowden, it has been pretty embarrassing for the obama administration to this point. do you think the president should and could have done more early on to try to stop him and
get other countries to cooperate? >> well, we don't know what the situation is in russia. they are saying he's in a certain zone at the airport and really hasn't entered russia. i think that -- here's what i do think about this. i think what is important about it is what happened, and what happened was that somebody released all of this information. and they gave an impression out there, and some on the right and even some on the left are saying, oh, this is the same old, same old in terms of surveillance of the american people, but what is important to note, that is completely not true. during the bush administration, the president had absolute presidential authority for all and any surveillance of the american people. when we got the majority, we changed the laws to make sure that you had to have certain requirements that had to be upheld in order to qualify for a court decision, that will would be tremendous oversight from the
congress, inspector general -- >> what do you do now with the crisis we're facing right now? >> the point being is that we have a balance between liberty and security, and this president has been doing that. so this reaction by some that, oh, he's a hero because he revealed this or that. that's not a hero. he has broken the law, and i think we have to look into the fact that so many consultants are working -- there's so many people working in the intelligence community, patriotic americans, who take their oath of office seriously to protect and defend the american people. i think it's really important to stay focused on when this person did this and people praised him and then he went and said this is what we've done as far as china's concerned, i don't know if it's true or not. >> it's also important to track him down. >> very important to track him down, but i think the important thing is the american people to be disabused of the notion that the surveillance of the american
people is the same that it used to be when they had a legitimate reason, in my view, to be concerned. he'll be tracked down. i think his judgment has been impaired all along, including his judgment to go to china and then go to russia and now be talking about going other places. why doesn't he, if he feels so strongly about what he believes, come home, face the music, make his case in court, where he will, of course, be prosecuted. >> let me ask you about the irs. we're now learning it appears that the irs may have targeted for extra screening liberal groups, not only conservative groups, for extra scrutiny. you previously have said any kind of extra scrutiny like that is wrong. with this new information in light, what do you think should happen to the irs? >> first of all, chris made a very important point this morning, these groups are in some ways giving the appearance
their primary purpose is the common good, the common welfare, and when they are actively engaged in political activity, for which they shouldn't be getting a tax deduction, so right or left, this should be looking at them. shouldn't be targeting one side and not the other, but i think what we have to do is overturn citizens united, overturn a system that allows these groups to hide their political activity behind a tax deduction. if we don't reduce the role of money and politics, and this is a large amount of it, and they put it there because they don't have to be reported, so it's substantial, it's hidden, in some cases, it's not as substantial, but in all cases, it shouldn't be political activity getting a tax deduction, so i completely -- >> you have to balance that good and the bad, right? going too far and not going far enough. >> the primary purpose of the organization is supposed to be
public good. >> right. >> if it's engaged almost overwhelmingly in politics, they shouldn't have the deduction and shouldn't be able to hide their political contributions behind a tax deductible organization. so the fact that they ask the question, are you targeting conservative groups and the question came back yes, you would have thought that the i.g. would have said not only -- not target as if to say focus on one rather than the other, we're looking at all these groups that have appeared to have a political purpose beyond incidental to their public good. >> madam leader, the control room is going to yell at me, but i want to have fun at the end of the segment, many leaders in politicians, when they dance, they make headlines. in this episode, nancy pelosi making headlines, dancing, i hope we show the video. this is an event for congressman john dingle. what's your headline here?
>> mary wilson, who is one of the supremes, for my third song, i'm going to call up nancy pelosi. >> you said, oh, no. >> i said, what? i'm not going up there alone. we have the secretary of hhs, kathleen sebelius, we have wonder woman, see wonder woman there? >> you have better dance moves than both previous presidents who get mocked for their dance moves. thank you so much for coming in this morning. >> congratulations on "new day." >> thanks so much. again, democratic leader of the house, nancy pelosi joining us this morning. chris? >> you want to see our politicians dance? only on "new day" is where they really dance. all right, we're awaiting more testimony today in the second-degree murder trial of george zimmerman. four witnesses took the stand monday after explosive opening statements on both sides. george howell is in sanford, florida. george, let's start with what happened yesterday. things started very strangely when the prosecutor swore in his opening remarks. let's take a listen. >> good morning.
[ bleep ] punks. these [ bleep ], they always get away. these were the words in that grown man's mouth. >> obviously, he's talking about what george zimmerman reportedly said during this night in question. so, george, what did you see down there, because the defense was not to be outdone, right? >> well, chris, absolutely. those were his first words to the jury. i mean, he said, thank you and got right into that. his style was jarring, it was very direct. in many ways, he set a theme and painted a picture and you could see in the courtroom, you could see tracy martin and sabrina fulton, trayvon martin's parents, both visibly shaken by what they heard, and for 30 minutes, he hammered away at george zimmerman's account of what happened. on the other side of the aisle, chris, let's talk about don west. very different approach. he took some two hours to really take his time taking the jury, taking everyone from the start
of this event on february 26th to the end of events that day, but let's talk about how he started out with a knock-knock joke. let's listen. >> knock, knock. who's there? george zimmerman. george zimmerman who? all right, good, you're on the jury. nothing? >> how that played out with jurors and everyone is anyone's guess, but that's how he started out. >> joke didn't work, george, let's be objective and honest about it, but you know what, probably not the strategy. my question to you is this, what happened yesterday is the defense laid out an exhaustive detail, well over two hours, the facts. they believe on the facts the prosecution cannot win this case. the prosecution, obviously, disagrees, but had a much more emotional aspect to what they were doing. so, where does the strategy lead

footage. the statue rotates a full 360 degrees. >> it's just a mystery. we really have genuinely no idea what's going on. >> reporter: mysterious, but pretty harmless compared to the mummies in the 2001 adventure film "the mummy returns." >> oh, i hate mummies. >> reporter: those statues literally explode out of the walls of the british museum. >> it's certainly strange. you don't see that every day, do you? >> are you disturbed by this? >> am i disturbed by this? probably not as much as i should be. >> i think it's really intriguing. >> are you freaked out by it? >> i am freaked out by it. >> reporter: maybe there's a physical explanation for what's going on, vibrations from the museum visitors with clunky feet or too much traffic on the roads outside. >> this is difficult to believe, because there are other statues on the shelf not moving whatsoever. >> reporter: the statue dates
back all the way to 1800 b.c. it was found inside a mummy's tomb and has been inside the museum 80 years. it started spinning when moved to a new spot in the museum. >> does that mean the spirit is angry? who knows. it's quite a nice shelf. i don't see why he would be particularly angry. >> reporter: erin mclaughlin, cnn, london. >> explanation, ancient aliens. >> obviously, obviously, aliens. >> i don't see why it's spinning around. >> that's the point of the story. >> michaela? >> who's in charge of him, is this your guy? >> we don't know why the statue is spinning, you know, how am i supposed to feel about that emotionally? >> you're supposed to marinate on it. >> i don't like it. i'm in the business of demystifying. >> we're going to talk about it. should we move on? we're going to move on. >> i'm freaked out.

condone the film's violence, especially after the sandy hook massacre back in september. definitely had a lot of people talking, that's for sure. >> we were talking about it yesterday, had a good discussion about it, and it generated a lot of discussion that continued yesterday. one of the questions was, has jim carrey now shined a light on an all-too violent hollywood movie landscape or is he stifling creative expression? >> stars and stripes reporting for duty. >> "kick ass 2" star jim carrey says the movie is too violent, tweeting i did "kick ass" a month before sandy hook, and now i cannot support that level of violence. my apologies to others involved in the film. i am not ashamed of it, but recent events have caused a change in my heart. some critics are a bit confused by carrey's turn around. >> the name of the movie is "kick ass."
this is "kick ass 2." that's what the movie does, it kicks butt. >> carrey was one of many hollywood stars who came out against gun violence after the sandy hook massacre. some called hollywood hypocritical for making billions of dollars on movies with gratuitous gun fights. this summer's slate of blockbusters seems to be more of the same, something mark millar defends, he responds to carrey on his blog, saying our job as storytellers is to entertain and our tool box can't be sabotaged by curtailing the use of guns in an action movie. carrey missed an opportunity to make a point about violence. >> in this instance, he's called attention to the film by stepping away, but didn't use the opportunity and platform to educate an audience on why he stepped away and the importance of gun violence. >> another question that remains
in all this, carrey has taken the stance, but is he still taking a salary? some say it's one thing to not promote a movie, but if you're making money from it, are you taking a stand? we asked if he is, in fact, taking a salary, haven't got an answer at news time, but that's an important question here. yes, it's a good moral stance to take, but if you're still benefitting, are you really doing it? >> put your money where your wallet is. >> there you go. >> your mouth where your wallet is. >> let us know if you get that answer. michelle, thanks so much. we want your thoughts on this one, check us out on twitter and facebook or go to newsdaycnn.com. time for the good stuff. every day we feature stories about some of the good news out there, people doing the right thing, so today's edition, no voice, just celebrated his first birthday. he's 19. noah's father didn't recognize government authority and raised

latest. berman is a caramel guy, so i've heard. a patrol officer from lakeland, florida, taking heat this morning for the way he handled a routine traffic stop. he reportedly asked a woman to lift up her shirt, you're going to see video, and also shake out her bra. the officer wanted to see if she was carrying any drugs. john berman is looking into this. on the surface, the video is pretty shocking. >> the video is very shocking. hundreds of thousands of people have now watched this video and many are asking the same question, how could this have possibly happened. now the state attorney's office in florida said it never should have happened and calling the practice both demeaning and dangerous. watch as this routine traffic stop results in a not so routine shakedown. driver zoe brugger was ordered by police to lift up her shirt, pull her bra away from her chest, and shake, not once, but twice. >> i feel humiliated.
i wish that i had known my rights. >> this past may, lakeland police officer dustin fetz pulled brugger over for a broken headlight. >> he said i looked way too nervous to not have any drugs on me. i told him i'm just trying to get home to my 2-week-old son. i guess he thought i had something hidden in my bra maybe. after he asked me to lift up my shirt and shake my bra, i started crying. >> no drugs were found in the search and the bra shakedown is not a sanctioned procedure. brugger filed a complaint. >> it is not a practice that we train for in the department. it is not taught at the academy. >> upon learning about the incident, the state attorney's office wrote a 15-page letter to the police department stating clearly there is a serious lack of training and supervision in the area of traffic stops. the police department says it will conduct a thorough investigation into the allegation. officer fetz is back on duty after being placed on a four-day
administrative leave for the incident and brugger says she hopes all women will learn from her ordeal. >> women need to know their rights when pulled over. the last thing you expect is to have to show off your body to a police officer. >> just an important facts here, the investigation into this matter found there were no facts to give reasonable suspicion that ms. brugger had drugs or weapon. there was no probable cause. the state's attorney office also points out something interesting, if the officer did suspect she had a weapon, shaking the bra would be dangerous for police, because if she was hiding some kind of weapon inside the bra, it would give the perp a chance to reach for it. >> excellent point. looks like now there will be changes in policy. john, thanks so much. chris? thank you, kate. brand new this morning for the first time since the paula deen scandal broke, deen's sons are speaking out. just moments ago in a "new day" exclusive, they came to their
mother's defense. bobby and jamie deen say the public should accept her apologies. take a listen. >> if my mom says she's sorry, you can bet she's sorry. bobby and i are here not to stem the side for endorsements, but to say our mother is a truly wonderful people that is inclusive of all people and spends a lot of her time and energies to help those people that are challenged. >> one of the complicating factors here is that deen has admitted to saying these things and that has spurred certain business partners to break affiliations. the latest is the largest pork producer, smithfield. so what does this all mean from a branding and p.r. perspective, let's bring in social media consultant peter shankman. thanks for being here on "new day." >> thank you. congrats on the show. >> what's your takeaway? >> there's not much they can do to defend their mother. this is not someone saying she said this, this is her in a deposition under oath saying, yes, i said this.
so there's not that much they can do to defend her right now. the best thing that can happen right now is to do what happened several years ago, disappear. disappear for a couple of years, where a very short attention span theater country. let her do volunteer help, she'll come back. she has a very big following, but it's not about the audience right now. it's about the advertisers who don't want to touch her. >> let's walk into the dangerous waters here a little bit. she admitted this, right? we didn't track it down, we didn't expose it. does that matter for anything? >> it brings up the question of -- it wasn't very farsighted. she did it not thinking for a second that this would come out, this would turn into a bigger story. >> how do you know that? >> i don't. that's the question i'm asking, everyone has to think, if you're going to admit something like that and you're a celebrity, this is going to come out. i'm not sure who coached her or how this worked. >> maybe this was just being truthful, she was under oath.
>> that's true, but you have to ask yourself, if she had a p.r. coach or p.r. firm at that point, they didn't do that great of a job. if she didn't have one, she probably should have. >> she was under oath. >> agreed, but again, there were different questions the sons said they all had their interviews separately, so the question is, was she asked these questions, it's going to come out, because it's public record. she should have had a better back-up plan for when it did. >> seems to me like paula deen is being treated like any bigot would, but would she qualify that way? this is something she said was long ago, this is something she says she didn't mean. >> the party reference of having a southern slavery party, that didn't help. i think the problem is paula deen is a very divisive woman to begin with. there are people who love her and people who can't stand her. >> it was because of butter, not because of a bigot.
>> when you do something wrong, you're going to hear from enemies you didn't knew existed. there's nothing she can do to defend. these are her words. nothing she can do to defend it right now, she needs to go away for awhile. >> do you see these two as equivalent? >> no, they were two very different wrongs. my analogy is the fact when elliot spitzer got caught, you couldn't find him. he came back a year and a half later. we are a forgiving society after paid our debts. >> the boys, obviously, very authentic in their pain wanting the message to be straight this is all wrong, helpful? >> no question it was helpful, but this isn't like a tiger woods situation where she slept with someone, this is something that offends millions of people. >> this is something we do not tolerate in our society. >> no question, we don't. we're more tolerant of people having affairs, things like
that. it's very decisive. that's why no matter how much she apologies, we're going to be very angry. time does heal. i'm not saying she'll ever be accepted for what she did, but time does heal. >> peter shankman, thank you very much. appreciate it very much. kate, back to you. a young man who's never let his disability define him, now he's on a mission to prove just that. our chief medical correspondent dr. sanjay gupta has his story. >> wheelchair racer, hockey player, paraolympian, but there's one word he won't let define him, disabled. >> i was always one of these kids that said i'm not going to let my disability get in my way. >> he was born with an incomplete closure of the spinal column and confined to a wheelchair as long as he can remember. that was his normal. but one day at a track meet, he met a man that offered to change
that. >> i met roger muller, the founder and president of "stay focused," which is a nonprofit organization that brings teens and young adults to the cayman islands and gets them certified in scuba diving. when i went diving for the first time, it opened my eyes to the whole idea that i'm exactly like all the able bodied people down under the water. >> chalmers and his friend roger hatched a plan to help fundraising efforts for the nonprofit. >> he said, do you think you could push your racing chair across the country? it clicked right away for me. >> on april 6th, his journey began in los angeles, 60 miles a day for 71 days to help kids like him experience a life outside of their chairs. on saturday, june 15th, ryan rolled into new york city to a crowd of cheering fans. the end of a long journey to
raise awareness about people with disabilities. >> anybody, able bodied, or not, if you're passionate, you can achieve anything. >> dr. sanjay gupta, cnn, reporting. >> great story. great message. >> sanjay always brings good stories like that. >> thank you to you, doctor. coming up on "new day," what not to do on a trip to the zoo. see what happens when a group of kids at the dallas zoo decide to mock the monkey. in this case, a gorilla. >> not a good idea. mom, dad told me that cheerios is good for your heart, is that true? says here that cheerios has whole grain oats that can help remove some cholesterol, and that's heart healthy.
