tv   CNN Newsroom With Carol Costello  CNN  July 27, 2015 6:00am-8:01am PDT

6:00 am
so the good men got her story out. liz received more than three times what she asked for for her paraplegic father. >> we need to start a fund-raiser fund-raiser. we have to do something for her. >> i don't know what to say to that. what a way to wake up today. >> thank you for that good stuff. that ends our show for today. let's hand it over to carol costello and newsroom. >> that was a nice end. thank you so much. have a nice day! newsroom newsroom starts now. happening now in the "news room." lost at sea the coast guard searching for two teenagers. their boat captain sizesized off the florida coast. their parents holding out hope. >> we are positive our boys are out there. >> a nfl legend gets involved. >> the love is there. we're all praying. also leader of the pack a brand new cnn poll puts trump on
6:01 am
top again. >> it's more than me. it's a movement going on. people are tired of the incompetent politicians. >> guess who is he targeting now. also a road rage fight escaladees escalates. both drivers are on the line with 9-1-1. now one of them is dead and the other facing murder charges. how the fight escalated so quickly. let talk live in the cnn "news room." and good morning. i'm carol costello. thank you so much for joining us. we begin with a war of words between president obama and the republicans who want his job. moments ago the president hit back against recent attacks by gop candidates like donald trump while addressing the press in ethiopia. >> in fact it's been
6:02 am
interesting when you look at what is happening with mr. trump when he's made some of the remarks that for example, challenge the heroism of mr. mccain somebody who endured torture and conducted himself with expatriotism. the republican party is shocked, and yet that arises out of a culture where, you know, those kinds of outrageous attacks become far too common place and circulating nonstop creating a culture that is not conducive to good policy or good politics. the american people deserve better. certainly presidential debates deserve better. and despite controversial comments by donald trump, cnn's
6:03 am
new poll shows the billionaire candidate is still leading the pac with 18%. jeb bush comes in second with 15%. let's bring in cnn's athena jones. >> good morning. a lot of interesting numbers here to look at. you mentioned that trump is now in the lead at 18%. he's actually been gaining. he's gained six points since our last poll in late yun, where as the second place finisher jeb bush lost a up kl of points and walker has gained just four. it's interesting to see this. you have trump's own rivals for the republican nomination. we've been saying his tone is offensive, his rhetoric is inflammatory inflammatory. it looks like republican voters at least this point, do not agree. i want to move to donald trump himself trying to explain his appeal on "state of the union." let's play that.
6:04 am
>> caller: an outsider and they're starting to view me as not an outsider because i'm leading in the polls not just yours. i think they've been nice over the last few days. they're starting to see what is happening. there's a movement going on. this is more than me. it's a movement going on. people are tired of the incompetent politicians in washington that can't get anything done. they can't make deals. they can't do anything. >> so he says there's a movement behind him. certainly he's appealing to a certain segment of the republican base, but even though he's appealing to those republicans, his popularity with that group does not extend to the general broader electorate. if you look at the numbers for his unfavorable ratings. they're among the highest of any people we polled. 80% of democrats had an unfavorable view. 53% of independents. there you have 42% of republicans. you average all that together and it gets do you 59%. that's very very high. so it doesn't bode well for any
6:05 am
potential future general election one, if he were to make it that far. one thing to mention to who trump is appealing to. one of the poll numbers is interesting. it showed that 53% of republicans do not feel the government in washington represents their views at all. that number was 27% for democrats. now among those republicans who say washington doesn't represent their views. president obama a democrat is leading in the white house. republicans have control over congress. for people who are not satisfied republicans are not satisfied they're much more likely to back trump. he leads by quite a bit at 24% compared to about 12 for the second place finisher. you get a hint as to who he's appealing to these disgruntled republican voters. >> all right athena jones, thank you. with me now cnn senior political correspondent knee yuma leek can henderson and sara murray.
6:06 am
thank you for being with me. nice to have you here. sara did president obama legitimize donald trump's candidacy? >> well, i'm sure president obama wouldn't want to go that far. i think he does hillary clinton a favor by saying trump is not good for the republican party. better to have the outgoing president who is established be the one saying this than hillary clinton who makes it look like he's up head to head against trump. you look at polling she needs him if they were to go head to head. >> what do you say about that? i was surprised that president obama spoke out about donald trump specifically. >> i think the political genius of what he said is he's piggy backing on something youthat is to make donald trump's synonymous with the republican party. you see republicans themselves trying to distance themselves from trump trying to say he's not quite a republican that he doesn't reflect the republican
6:07 am
party's values but that you have the president of the united states name checking donald trump and essentially saying she's one in the same with the republican party that he's emblematic of where the republican party is. it's a neat thing for them to try to do because voters draw from what presidential candidates say. that's what they're trying to do. who knows how he'll do when it starts up in january. for now, i think this is a very effective strategy. >> so sara is donald trump emblematic of the republican party? >> well, on a lot of issues the republicans would say no. i think the may be issue they're trying to paint republicans all alike on this is on immigration. when you look across the field at republicans running, there's a broad range of views when it comes to immigration policy. you have everyone from donald trump and ted cruz who almost sounded a little bit isolationist to someone like lindsey graham who supported a pathway to citizenship, supported a comprehensive
6:08 am
immigration reform. i think the problem is there is no one singular message coming from the republican party on immigration. a couple of other issues it's easy to say, look donald trump this is for the gop. he's leading in the polls. >> and, you know, some are concerned about donald trump. priebus talked about donald trump. >> my job is not call balls and strikes but treat everyone respectfully and fairly. but certainly our candidates should pledge not to run as a third party candidate. i don't see that happening. i think everyone understands that if hillary clinton's going get beat she's going to get beat by a republican. most people that run for president run to win. if our candidates want to win, then they'll have to run as a republican. >> nia, i don't really see donald trump pledging not to run as a third party candidate.
6:09 am
>> yeah exactly. >> he doesn't seem to want to sign on to what the president wants to do. he seemed to hint he would run maybe as a third party something he would look at because he was upset with the language that was coming out of the rnc there. he said el with listen they have to treat me better or i might think about doing this. then he pulled back and used the similar language you saw mr. priebus use there and say it will take a republican to beat hillary clinton or bernie sanders. >> all right nia-malik henderson, sara murray i appreciate it. on to the search for two the teen boys missing at sea after a fishing trip. they are look for perry cohen and austin stef phpstephanos. their capsized boat was found
6:10 am
yesterday. there was no sign of the boys. ali . >> reporter: good morning. the search area is expanding. right now we're told the coast guard is searching near jacksonville florida which is north where the capsized boat was found as the families of the teens continue to hope for the best. the search for two teen boaters missing off the coast of florida since friday evening intensifying overnight. their capsize the 19-foot white single vessel overturned 67 nautical miles off florida's inland with no trace of the two. >> as a mother the worst feeling ever not knowing where your child is. >> austin and perry avid boaters embarked on a fishing trip friday morning. the pair was last seen about 1:30 in the upjupiter, florida area buying $110 worth of fuel.
6:11 am
a few hours later vanished. early reports indicates the boys told others they planned to travel to the bajahamasbahamas. the coast guard's effort on the sea and in the air spanning more than 26,000 nautical miles. . >> it can be tricky searching from the air. >> the effort to find the two teens getting big name support from family friend and neighbor nfl hall of famer joe namin who helped the families raise a $100,000 reward for the boy's safe return. >> we're optimistic. we're praying. the coast guard is wonderful. the history of the high seas shows survival rates over the years. there have been miracles out there. we're planning on finding the children. >> we're told the u.s. navy joined in the search overnight. so far the search area is almost the size of the state of indiana. >> wow. we don't know exactly what
6:12 am
happened to the two teenagers, of course, take a look at the radar on friday afternoon when the boys disappeared. there were storms? the -- in the area at the time. one man who knows about this is retired coast guard larry we are niki. he lead two groups during the perfect storm. >> caller: good morning. >> is it possible these boys are still alive? >> caller: well we can't know of certainty whether they are or aren't. when you're searching you have to believe they're out there, they're alive, and i'm going to find them. and, you know, you don't quit until you have exhausted all your efforts to find them. >> apparently there were life vests on board that fishing boat so like i suppose it would be possible for the boys to put on life vests. it's been two days now. >> caller: well news reports haven't said whether the life jackets were found on the boat or not. if they weren't found on the boat then there's a possibility
6:13 am
the boys were able to put them on and that would certainly increase their chances of being alive and being found. >> they're searching such a large area. how do you go about doing something like that? >> caller: well when you begin the search it's always better if you know exactly what time they went in the water and where they went in the water. it gives you a better starting point. when you're searching an area that big and you don't have a good starting point, you do -- i'm going to call it a grid search. think of a football field and with the yard lines marked on it. you start on the corner at the sideline and you walk up the goal line until you get to the opposite side and turn and walk along the sideline until you get to 5 yard line and walk on that all the way back to the beginning side and walk up the side to the 10 yard line and walk along that line. that's how you want to do a
6:14 am
search like that. with a person in the water, you're not looking for a person you're looking for a head which is very very small for a person in the water you really like a space between the grid lines to be about a tenth of a mile. when you're talking 30,000 square miles, that's an awful lot of search area. so then you really have to decide whether you want to cover more area or you want to be efficient in one small area. it's a tough call. you have to look at the weather and you have the gulf stream pushing them north and the winds the last couple of days have been out of the southwest. that would push them north into offshore. that's about consistent where the boat was found. it was found about 48 hours after they were reported missing and gulf stream is about 5 1/2 miles per hour.
6:15 am
it's pretty much 200 miles where the boat was found. quite possibly they could be another 100 miles north of that. >> oh my goodness. miracles happen and they have happened in the past. thank you for your insight larry brudnicki. nearly three years after the death of her mother bobbi kristina brown dies. so many questions remain. when account lead craig wilson books at laquinta.com. he gets a ready for you alert the second his room is ready. so he knows exactly when he can settle in and practice his big pitch. and when craig gets his pitch down pat, do you know what he becomes? great proposal! let's talk more over golf! great. better yet, how about over tennis? even better. a game changer! your 2 o'clock is here. oops, hold your horses. no problem. la quinta inns & suites is ready for you, so you'll be ready for business. the ready for you alert, only at lq.com. laquinta!

after more than a month in hose pin and nearly six months after she was found unresponsive in a bathtub, bobbi kristina brown has died. brown died surrounded by her family. a family rep saying last night, quote, finally at peace in the arms of god. bobbi kristina was only 22 years old. brown's chaotic short life was chronicled by her mother's spotlight and ultimately
6:20 am
consumed by tragedy following houston's sudden death in 2012. bobbi explained to open ed toed to oprah winfrey how she's coping. >> i hear her. she's always with me. i can always feel her with me. >> in late january bobbi kristina was found inside this town home she shared with her boyfriend. for months police have been treating her case as a criminal investigation. let's talk about that investigation into bobbi kristina's life or her death. i'm joined by sunny hostin who knew the family. thank you for being with me. >> caller: my pleasure carol. >> have you talked to the family? >> caller: i have spoken to someone very close to the family very late last night and early this morning and they are --
6:21 am
while they expected this was going to happen which is why she was moved to hospice, everyone is weeping. everyone is deeply mourning. it seems as they were still surprised when the time was coming but, of course they are trying to deal with this as best they can now making arrangements for her homecoming is what i'm hearing. they're not quite sure when that will be because again while they expected this they didn't know when it was going to happen. everyone at this point, is just trying to make arrangements and trying to deal. >> i've heard there will be an autopsy on her body. have you heard that? >> caller: yes, i was told that part of the process now is that
6:22 am
the coroner will be conducting an autopsy and after that they will know better when they'll be able to plan her arrangements. >> what does the family think happened to bobbi kristina? well i think at this point they're not sure. they certainly have been very suspicious of her relationship with nick. they were not comfortable with the relationship. they were not comfortable with nick. as you know they did not let him visit her at the hospital. they did not let him visit her at the hospice. while the investigation now is in the hands of the authorities, they are still uncomfortable with what may have happened and nick's involvement. >> and what are the police
6:23 am
saying? >> the police haven't been that open about their findings. of course, that is the norm carol because it's an akctive investigation. we don't have that much information from the police department. that's what they should be doing. they should be keeping this investigation closed. they should be keeping this investigation very closed. but i suspect that we'll be learning more in the coming days and the coming weeks about their finding. >> sunny hostin thank you. forget the drip drip drip of ak cueccusationkccusations of bill cosby. 35 women's stories were published today who claimed they were sexually abused by cosby at some point in the past. there might be more alleged victims but these are the women who have agreed to come forward

6:29 am
recalls involving some 11 million vehicles. cnn money joins me with more. how can you mess up 23 recalls? >> what chrysler is being punished for is not so much 23 specific incidents. there were a lot of ways these were mishandled. what they're being punished for is an apparent culture of carelessness around recalls and recall safety. they didn't seem to be taking these things quickly enough or seriously enough. they were missing deadlines ss sdeadlines, weren't getting repair parts made quickly enough. customers were frustrated that were trying to get their cars fixed. >> what does it mean about safety and driving chryslers on the road even today? >> honestly the biggest thing about this recall for chrysler isn't the money. it's the thing you said. you're seeing these stories in the news you're going to be a little bit worried next time you shop for a jeep or a dodge or a
6:30 am
chrysler. is this a company that has my back here? it doesn't seem like they created that impression. >> we seem to be hearing more and more not just about chrysler but other car manufacturers as well being slapped with the multidollar fine multimillion dollar fines. it doesn't seem to matter. >> i think it does matter. i think we'll probably see chrysler change in the future. they'll take these things more seriously. they have to or they face $15 million in more fines if they don't. they'll have a federal overseer. these have an effect. they want to seen adds a safe company. gm is taking more recalls more seriously. one result of that through our reasoning we're seeing more recalls not itself is a good thing, but just a recall cars for any reason you can find but
6:31 am
it does indicate the industry is taking this more seriously. president obama is now in ethiopia. he's the first sitting president to visit that african nation. a short time ago, the president and the prime minister held a news conference following their discussions on trade, human rights and terrorism. the visit to ethiopia follows an emotional homecoming of sorts in kenya where president obama has many relatives. we'll have more on his historic trip next hour with a live report from theth yop began capital. the boy scouts of america expected to make history today by lifting a long time ban on gay scout leaders. the 80-member is meeting this morning and expecting to approve the change. local leaders will have lee way on choosing leaders. this morning we're closely watching the financial markets today as the opening bell sounds on wall street. the volatile stock market in china and lower oil prices weigh heavily on investors.
6:32 am
cnn money producer paula monica has insight what will likely drive the markets today. good morning, paul. >> good morning, carol. luckily so far stocks are not down that much in spite of a brutal day in china. chinese stocks down 8.5%. that volatility has returned with vengeance. investors have to wonder whether or not it's going to eventually hit the u.s. stock market. we had a rough week last week. people are starting to grow concerned about the health of the global economy. that's the big reason i think oil prices and other commodity prices have been plunging. >> tell us why we should be concerned with china's markets. >> chinese stock market is important because china is the world's second largest economy now. huge trainding partner to the u.s. and europe. there are many big companies in the united states that have exposure to china. apple is getting more exposure. young brands gets more than half
6:33 am
their revenue from china. if the chinese economy is actually slowing down and that's the reason why we have the market volatility and possibly a bubble bursting it could be bad news for the u.s. companies betting on china as a hot market for the future. >> paul lamonica thank you. now the president is speaking out about huckabee's comments.

6:37 am
we're expecting to hear from the coast guard momentarily, actually in about 15 minutes on the missing boys in jupiter, florida. we'll take you to florida when the press conference begins. in other news this morning, president obama's iran deal is no doubt controversial.
6:38 am
congress is now debating its merits but mike huckabee's mind is made up. no surprise there. but how huckabee expressed his displeasure over the deal has caused the ruckus. listen to what he told breitbart news news. sad. >> the particular comments of
6:39 am
mr. huckabee are, i think, part of just a general patdtern we've seen that is -- that would be considered ridiculous if it weren't so sad. >> with me now marvin hire the dean and founder of the simon visa center. thank you so much for being with me this morning. i appreciate it. >> it's a pleasure. >> pleasure to have you here. you're opposed to the iran deal. was mike huckabee's language appropriate? >> no it's not. it's very harsh with and the only way we're going to win this is with bipartisan support. what the governor said he's a great supporter of israel is hardly the way to achieve that bipartisan support. i think it was over the top, and i don't agree with it.
6:40 am
>> why do you suppose many use nazi or holocaust analogies. >> in the 1930s winston churchill said if we have taken on the nazis in the early '30s we could have saved 50 million lives. there's always a temptation but this is not the right way to do it. the right way to do it is simply to describe the facts that at the end of ten years iran will be weeks away from nuclear weapons. they will according to the israelis if you include investment with the e.u. and other countries, they'll have $750 billion. we know when they were poor what they did with that money. they gave billions to hezbollah, hamas, and syria. what will they do if they have $750 billion? that's the first point.
6:41 am
the second point we should make, look the p5+1 could have said stop calling for the destruction of israel and you have a deal. they didn't say that. the united states would not open an embassy with cuba if cuba would still call for the destruction of the united states. those are the issues. >> and it would be nice if republicans and democrats sat down and talked about issues and facts. but facts don't seem to fly these days rabbi. >> it's unfortunate. you know, the ayatollah -- i agree with one thing that governor huckabee said. ayatollah has been in business from 1979. from the get go anti-semitism has been their credo. they are not stopped 40 years later. it's ridiculous to assume they are going to stop now because they made a p5+1, especially
6:42 am
when it wasn't required of them. >> what is your reprixprediction? maybe the congress -- the republican-controlled congress they probably won't appeal the deal. that doesn't mean the deal won't go through >>well i think it's going to be a tough battle for the president and many democrats will vote against the deal because it has no logic to it at the end of ten years. in other words, we we have kicked the can down the road for ten years. nobody denies after 10 years there will be stabilized middle east because every middle east country will want nuclear weapons. what have we achieved? >> just my final question what advice would you give to governor huckabee when it comes to talking about this deal and arguing against it? >> i would advise that no president of the united states should be compared in any way to adolf hitler. >> rabbi marvin hier thank you
6:43 am
for your insight. i appreciate it. hillary clinton is back in iowa today and this time she's talking about climate change and calling out gop rivals by name who say there's no scientific proof that humans cause it. she's talking to you, donald trump and jeb bush marco rubio and ted cruz. clinton said she's no sentence scientist but -- scientist but a grandmother with a brain. >> it's hard to believe there are people running for president who don't accept climate change. you don't have to be a scientist to take on this urgent challenge that threatens us all. you just have to be willing to act. >> another prominent democracy new york city mayor bill de blasio is waiting for clinton to get specific on the issues before deciding whether to support her presidential run. in the meantime he's rolling out his on plan for new york
6:44 am
city to reduce carbon emissions. de blasio is just back from rome for the meeting on the environment hosted by pope francis. >> we as citizens as consumers, that companies have to recognize the threat to earth and the global warming. i'm inspired for one. i went to rome after announcing that new york city would reduce emissions by the year 2030. we're taking very aggressive actions to get there. based on the gallery in rome coming up i said what can we do? we decided to emulate california which agreed to a 40% reduction. we're going retrofit all the public buildings, guarantee the private buildings are retrofitted. we're going to use more electric cars and make it easier for consumers to have electric cars. there's a host of things. >> all the monies cost money, too? is there any price tag in mind?
6:45 am
>> sure. for example, to retrofit the buildings is $10 million. we put it in the budget. the fate of the earth is something that should be paramount by definition. >> what would you say to the politicians that the pope should stay away from climate change he's not a scientist. >> it's interesting when you look at this. it begins when what previous popes have said on this issue and related issues. going back 100 years or more popes of different fillphilosophical backgrounds have addressed four issues. the environment has been addressed constantly over the last half century. >> for more of my interview with mayor de blasio head to facebook.com/carol facebook.com/carolcnn. a section of the nato treaty and the efforts to stop isis attacks along the border. we'll take you live to the pentagon for the latest.

right. u.s. involvement about to increase. the u.s. has access to turkish
6:51 am
bases in the southern part of that country. much closer to the syrian border to conduct air strikes. what u.s. officials are telling us now is the access to these bases means that the u.s. and the turks are basically talking about establishing an isis-free corridor on the ground along that border region. that is the goal. that is what the discussion is going to be between the u.s. and turkey as they go ahead. is it formal yet? no. is it a no-fly zone in the traditional sense of the word with u.s. jets patrolling all the time? no. but it is a very significant step forward in upping u.s. involvement on that border and very complicated because the u.s. wants to go after isis. turkey wants to go after isis, assad's syrian regime forces, and the kurds in that area. the kurds that the u.s. says to

a deadly road rage altercation in florida. one driver shot and killed in front of his family and the other charged with his murder. it happened last week in citrus county but this morning chilling 911 calls are now painting a clearer picture of just how quickly that rage escalated and the warning police gave that could have prevented
6:57 am
it all. nick valencia is following the story for us from atlanta. good morning, nick. >> good morning. those 911 tapes you're talking about absolutely frightening. two men driving down the road with their family 2 1/2 minutes later police say they get into that time they get into a very aggressive encounter according to police. within five miles one man shoots the other man in front of his family. the man who fired the shots says the victim was charging at him. >> oh my god. >> reporter: disturbing 911 calls reveal both sides of a deadly road rage altercation in florida that ends in gunfire. on thursday 44-year-old candelario gonzalez was in his trick with his wife and grandson. he called 911 saying robert droul was driving like an idiot. doyle called 911 too saying gonzalez was trying to run him
6:58 am
off the road. >> no no. >> they're following me to my house and the guns are already out. >> doyle tess the dispatcher he has his gun cogcked and locked. seconds later doyle reaches his driveway and gonzalez decides to get out of his truck. >> he's got a gun. get somebody here now. >> reporter: shots rang out and a witness says doyle shot gonzalez as he was backing away but the wife of the alleged shooter says the 44-year-old was charging towards her husband. >> we were in our yard. he stopped in the middle of the road and came after my husband. >> as gonzalez was lying on the ground doyle allegedly forced the victim agencies's family out of the car holding them at gunpoint until police arrived. >> he's making me get out of the truck with my daughter. >> doyle is charged with second-degree murder and is now out on bond. that bond was set at $60,000
6:59 am
sometime on friday. robert doyle posted that bond. he is now out of jail. we have reached out to him and his family to try it get comment, but we have not heard back. we're also waiting to hear back from the gonzalez family but as you could imagine very troubling situation involving two families. two children under the age of 10 witnessed this shooting. certainly traumatizing for those kids. carol? >> unbelievable. nick valencia reporting live this morning. thank you. checking some other top stories at 59 minutes past. a shaky landing for some airline passengers over the weekend. 75-mile-per-hour winds left this klm royal dutch airlines flight in a hair-raising sway as it came in for a landing in amsterdam. no one was hurt but the video has gone viral, already viewed mosh more than 2 million times since saturday. the hallowed hall in cooperstown welcoming four major league baseball greats.

7:01 am
on top again. >> this is more than me. this is a movement going on. people are tired of these incompetent politicians. >> and guess who he's targeting now? and gay leaders openly welcome inside the boy scouts. big changes expected today. do they go far enough. let's talk live in the cnn "newsroom." and good morning. i'm carol costello. thank you so much for joining me. right now we're awaiting a coast guard news conference updating us on the search for those two missing teenagers. the 14-year-olds disappeared friday after leaving on a fishing trip in jupiter, florida. their capsized boat was found more than 100 miles away just north of cap ka nave ral. the search area now expanded. it's as big as the state of indiana. we'll bring you that news conference as soon as it begins. the presidential race takes
7:02 am
center stage overseas. the commander in chief hitting back hard against republican candidates. listen as president obama reacts to recent attacks by donald trump and mike huckabee while addressing the press in ethiopia. >> in fact it's been interesting when you look at what's happened with mr. trump when he's made some of the remarks that for example, challenge the heroism of mr. mccain. somebody who endured torture and conducted himself with exemplary patriotism. the republican party is shocked, and yet that arises out of a culture where, you know, those kinds of outrageous attacks have become far too commonplace and get seshg latecirculated nonstop. we're create agriculture that is
7:03 am
not conducive to good policy or good politics. the american people deserve better certainly presidential debates deserve better. >> despite controversial comments made by donald trump, the billionaire candidate is edging out his competitors with little more than a week before that presidential debate occurs. >> reporter: a lot of interesting facts and figures in these poll numbers. there you had the poll showing that trump is leading the pack but he isn't just leading, he has gained about six points since our most recent poll the one at the end of june, while his second in place bush rival, governor jeb bush of florida, has actually lost a couple points over the last month and this is interesting because you have trump's republican rivals for the nomination really blasting him for some of the things he's said blasting him for his tone, calling it offensive, saying his rhetoric is inflammatory and divisive.
7:04 am
this poll i should mention comes after he made those comments about john mccain questioning his heroism even though he was a prisoner of war during vietnam. so those comments are fully baked into this poll conducted completely after, but, yes, trump doing very very well among a segment of the republican base but that popularity along those republicans is not translating into the broader electorate. i believe we have his unfavorability numbers we can put up on the screen. 80%, excuse me 80% of democrats have an unfavorable view of donald trump. 53% of independents have an unfavorable view and 42% of republicans. you average all that out, it comes to 59% of folks don't have a favorable view of donald trump. >> athena jones reporting live from washington. with so many voters fed up with washington outsider status
7:05 am
is obviously a plus and in trump's mind his outsider status is now a movement. >> they view mes a s aas an outsider and i'm leading in all the polls. there's a movement going on. this is more than me. this is a movement going on. people are tired of these incompetent politicians in washington that can't get anything done. they can't make deals. they can't do anything. i mean all they care about is getting elected. they don't care about anything else. >> all right. let's bring in larry savadeau. thank you for being here. when you hear trump talk about why he's leading in the polls, you really can't argue with him, right? >> no you can't argue with that part. look this is an eternal suspicion that americans have of washington. they always like to listen to
7:06 am
anti-washington candidates and, frankly, most of the candidates even the ones serving in office there pretend they don't even know the layout of the streets in washington. they pretend they never visited the city so there's nothing unusual about this except that donald trump himself as a personality, as a political figure and celebrity, carol, he's almost a black hole sucking in all the available media light so there's almost none left for any other candidates unless they say outrageous things or do outrageous things which several recently have done. >> absolutely. you had lindsey graham put his cell phone in a blender. rand paul set the tax code on fire. mike huckabee compared president obama to, you know nazis in the holocaust. you're right. it's just getting even more -- i don't know how to characterize
7:07 am
it. >> well we need to remember this is way in advance of even the first voting february 1st in iowa and we're 470 days away from the actual election in november 2016. so it's fair to say that people are test driving some of the candidates and right now they're going with some of the flashier models but they may learn that they just don't like the models or perhaps they're too expensive or they get tired of them. so things will change. that's the one thing we know for sure. today's polls will not be next month's or six months from now. >> isn't it possible that some voters are just venting? because donald trump's unfavorability ratings are quite high among independents. >> that's part of it. look trump benefits from the fact that there are 17 candidates on the republican side. the person who wins the early
7:08 am
primaries and caucuses may do so with 20% to 25% of the vote maybe less than that. so it doesn't matter if you have a 60% unfavorability as long as you have got, as trump does 18% to 20% in the polling averages of republicans nationwide. that may be enough to police or to win if this holds up for the long run. >> larry sabato thank you for your insight. funeral services begin in less than two hours for mayci breaux. services for jillian johnson will also take place later toot and presidential candidate and louisiana governor bobby jindal is warning westboro baptist church members not to picket the services services. >> they come to louisiana and try to disrupt the funeral, we're going to lock them up. we're going to arrest them. they shouldn't try that in
7:09 am
louisiana. we won't abide by that here. let these families grieve and let celebrate their loved ones' lives in peace. they better not try that nonsense here. >> controversial church who claim mass shootings are god's punishment for disobedience is supposedly still vowing to hold these protests. this all comes as we learn new details about the killer john houser. cnn is live in lafayette with more on that. good morning, ryan. >> reporter: carol, good morning to you. and police have learned quite a bit about john russell houser's background and his potential for violence and how he planned the attack here at the grand theater. they believe this attack was ma methodically planned. he was staying at a motel 6. police found a diary inside the hotel room where houser was staying and listen to what state
7:10 am
police colonel michael edmonton told me houser had written in that diary. >> here is one thing that's perfectly clear, this man was certainly of sound mind because you know what? he wrote it down. he said he's coming to this movie theater at 7:15 on thursday night. what we do believe is that he was in other theaters whether it was lake charles, lafayette, and baton rouge, maybe disguised himself from some of the things we heard about. and then for whatever reason he's in this theater on that night at 7:27 and he stands up and he kills two innocent people. >> reporter: and edmonson told me the family of john houser has talked about their concern for his potential for violence but they thought he might target a governmental building. houser's body has yet to be claimed by the lafayette parish coroner -- from the lafayette parish coroner's office.
7:11 am
as you already mentioned, mayci breaux and jillian johnson's lives will be remembered today with funerals for both young women. there were nine other victims in this case. six of them have been released from the hospital. there are still three recovering inside local hospitals. two oflisted in good conditions one in fair. >> ryan nobles, thank you so much. still to come it is a frantic search and a growing search area. two teenaged fishermen missing. their boat flipped over off the coast of florida.

we are still awaiting that news conversation from the coast guard as the search area expands for crews looking for two teenagers who disappeared after going on a fishing trip. they were last seen on friday gassing up their boat near
7:16 am
jupiter, florida. the 14-year-olds have not been seen since. rescue crews located their capsized boat on sunday 67 miles offshore just north of cape canaveral. alina machado is in jupiter following the story. >> reporter: good morning, carol. the coast guard told me this morning that they've expanded their search as you mentioned. they have now been searching near jacksonville florida, which is north from where that capsized boat was found on sunday. the boys both 14 perry cohen and austin stephanos were last seen near here in jupiter, florida. their families as you can imagine, desperate to find them and they are trying to remain optimistic. >> none of us are giving up hope they are going to find those boys. obviously it's a terrifying experience to be living through second by second but i have 100% faith that they will find our boys. >> we're optimistic we're praying. the coast guard is wonderful,
7:17 am
the people conducting the search are optimistic. the history of the high seas shows survival rates over the years, there have been miracles out there and we're planning on finding the children. >> as you saw, nfl hall of famer joe namath a neighbor of the families is also joining in in the search. the families are offering $100,000 reward for the teens' rescue carol. >> and as i mentioned, the coast guard is expected to hold a news conference at any moment. when that happens we'll take you back to florida live. three years after her mother's death, bobbi kristina brown has died. she died sunday in hospice. a family rep saying quote she's finally at peace in the arments of god. her chaotic short life was chronicled in the spotlight. she was found face down in a bathtub inside this town home
7:18 am
she shared with her then boyfriend. a criminal investigation is ongoing. joining me on the phone is sam moore a long-time family friend and member of the rock and roll hall of fame. sam, thank you for being with me this morning. i appreciate it. thank you >> thank you, carol. good morning to you also. >> have you talked to the family at all? >> no i haven't because i just got the message -- got the news last night. i'm here in minnesota at the starky foundation gala and when the news came about, i was in the process of listening to katy perry and my wife gave me the phone and i read it then but, no, that's all i can tell you. >> it's just so sad. i mean we've been expecting it, but 22 years old, and the way she died. >> carol, you know what if i may say so it's so sad because you know what? it's going to happen again.
7:19 am
>> what do you mean? >> what i mean is this these young ladies they get -- they come from a humble beginning and when someone in their family passes they are left alone. she and her mother were very very very close from what i have been told and her mother passes and something happens to the point that i'm alone and nobody -- and this young man comes by and i'm not accusing him of anything i want to get an understanding of this, he comes into her life. he's already been in her mother's life. comes into her life and then they -- he's wearing these wonderful suits, nice haircuts and all that and they're faking that they are married, and the next day, this young lady at a
7:20 am
young age, she falls in love with this young man. probably got a record from here to yonder. she's found in the bathtub. isn't that sort of suspicious carol? >> well i know the police are looking into that but they're being very tight-lipped with what they're finding. >> yes. it's so sad. you know in our lifetime yours and mine and everyone it's so sad because when -- if the family is interested and he wasn't the right one for her life -- and i don't want to single him out but he's the only one there now, and they say he's not good for you. we want you to watch out, bobbi. and she said don't make me choose or whatever she says.
7:21 am
that is sad because the more they push, the tighter she -- and the closer she became with him. that's not love. these opportunist and using her for whatever means he can. well, look what has happened now, and that's why i said a minute ago it's going to happen again and again and again until these young people understand these young women, that so preciously understand this is not cool. >> yeah. sam moore, thanks so much for your insight. i appreciate it and i just also want to tell our viewers that there will be an autopsy performed on bob bikrisbi kristina to figure out exactly why she died. we're keeping tabs on that. i'll be right back.

the boy scouts of america is expected to end its ban on gay adult scout leaders today. it's a policy that has divided the 105-year-old organization. the scouts' executive committee approved ending the ban earlier this month. the entire board votes today. the boy scouts did lift its ban on gay youth two years ago but not on scout leaders. john langburt joins us from dallas a former scout leader who is gay. welcome, john and good morning. >> thanks, carol. >> this is not entirely good news in your mind. why? >> well i think they've kind of not really thought this through. they're going to allow troops now to decide whether or not to allow gay leaders, so what does that do to folks like me if i want to participate with my son, do i now have to start ringing up on the phone and calling around to different troops and
7:27 am
saying do you guys discriminate or am i a first-class citizen in your troop and i can join? >> i guess it was sort of a compromise because religious groups sponsor boy scout troops and they don't want gay leaders if they sponsor these boy scout troops and then companies sponsor other boy scout troops and they're fine with it. is that what you're talking about? >> right. well if you're a religious troop, obviously you have your tenets but they have schools that sponsor them and they have to follow the rules that public institutions do but it creates a bit of a mess when you don't have one global policy for the scouts. for example, if you work for the scouts themselves they're going to allow gays as employees, but when you have one branch of an organization doing one thing and another doing another, it creates a lot of stress for folks like me and it's i don't think sending the right message to the boys either. imagine if they go to a jamboree
7:28 am
jamboree. the boys are going to be talking about, is that what they want the next few years to be about? >> i think they're going to say this has been such a monumental shift to see how it goes. what's wrong with that 1234. >> well they have already been at it for 15 years now. i think it's been a pretty long time already and the country has moved past this certainly the youth of america has moved past this. you have a president like obama in africa standing up for gay rights as we speak this past week. i think it's time that the boy scouts get on board. >> so you were a scout leader and did they kick you out? is that what happened and if they did would you go back? >> they did. i had been a leader for a couple years doing the fund-raising. they called me the popcorn kernel. i enjoyed it very much doing it with my son.
7:29 am
they asked me a couple of the dads had a problem with a gay leader and they asked for me to be removed, which they did. and i stepped down and i was just speaking with carter about this the other day, about whether he would like to go back and i don't think he wants to put me in that position either. he goes to a private school, and didn't necessarily want me to have to start calling around finding a troop that he could participate in. it would be nice in the boys that might have a gay father could participate in the troop that's at their church or at their school and not have to necessarily go to a different one just because of the way their father was born. >> john langbert thank you for your insight. i appreciate it. >> thank you, carol. and good morning. i'm carol costello. thank you so much for joining me. president obama returns to washington tomorrow after a historic trip in africa. he was in ethiopia today.
7:30 am
he's talked about improving trade, the war on terror and civil rights in ethiopia. afterwards they appeared at a joint news conference. >> i'm proud to be first u.s. president to virs sit ethiopia and tomorrow the first u.s. president to address the african union. so my visit reflects the importance the united states places on a relationship with ethiopia and all the nations and peoples of africa. >> white house correspondent michelle kosinski is traveling with the president. she joins us with more. good morning, michelle. >> reporter: hi carol. yeah and some of this was somewhat unexpected. here he is in a press conference talking about trade and countering terror but then president obama was asked about the iran nuclear deal. and that opened up this opportunity for him to level a major slam against republican rhetoric lately on that subject and others especially those highly controversial comments from mike huckabee that president obama was leading israelis quote, to the door of
7:31 am
the oven. listen. >> particular comments of mr. huckabee are i think part of just a general pattern that we've seen that is -- would be considered ridiculous if it weren't so sad. >> reporter: president obama called some of these comments outrageous including donald trump's criticism of republican senator john mccain. the president said that americans deserve better that the presidential debate deserves better and he called for honesty, decorum, and seriousness in this presidential race carol. >> all right, michelle kosinski reporting live from ethiopia this morning. still to come in the "newsroom," senator ted cruz gets a reminder on etiquette from the united states senate.

more tough talk from republican front-runner donald trump. the billionaire candidate now accuseing hillary clinton of being a criminal. on sunday trump compared her use of personal e-mail while she was secretary of state to general david petraeus who resigned after allowing his mistress to access classified information. >> the fact is that what she had done is criminal. i mean what she has done is criminal. i don't see how she can run because if the prosecutors who are all democrats by the way, and that's part of the problem with fairness here they're all democrats so they're protecting her, but if you had an impartial prosecutor and they were honorable and maybe they are, we're going to find out, but what she's done is criminal. >> what are you saying is criminal? >> what she did is like what
7:37 am
general petraeus did around he's gone down in disgrace. what he did is not as bad as what hillary clinton did. >> trump is still leading in the polls. a new cnn/orc poll shows he's maintains an edge over jeb bush. senator ted cruz he's also running for president, he's ripping a page from trump's handbook by ripping his republican colleagues on the floor of the u.s. senate calling mitch mcconnell a liar over the export/import bank. senator orrin hatch was in charge of the smackdown accusing cruz of misuse of the senate floor. >> we are not here on some frolic or to pursue personal ambitions. we serve the people not our own egos. >> oh senator hatch, try convincing hotvoters of that. with me now s.e. cupp and sally
7:38 am
kohn. >> nice to be here. >> what was senator cruz trying to do? >> there are very few platforms on which donald trump does not have access and one is the senate floor, and so ted cruz i think was trying to get a share of both the attention that trump is getting and also with a specific group of voters that donald trump seems to be getting some support amongst. so ripping mcconnell on the senate floor is something that i think he thinks trump voters will probably find appealing, although i don't know. i think to this republican it looked pretty unseemly to be doing it but it's very hard if you're not donald trump to get attention running for president. i just have to think between the hillary clinton's quarterly capitalism voters must be at home saying, guys start talking about things we actually care about. >> i don't think they are sitting at home saying that
7:39 am
exactly. the latest poll the cnn/orc, shows trump holds a large lead with voters who say their views are not represented by those in washington. >> that's what i mean. that's why trump is doing well because he's not talking about the quarterly capitalism. he's talking the way real people talk and sometimes that means you make mistakes and you exaggerate and you are fact immune. that's just how normal people are sometimes. >> yeah but not everybody gets to be president, and i think -- >> we agree ted cruz that was inappropriate behavior the way donald trump has conducted himself, also governor huckabee in trying out-trump trump just compared the iran deal to the holocaust. s in in thethis is not becoming of anybody who wants to be president of the u.s.
7:40 am
>> maybe like calling your competitors idiots is the gateway to the presidency at the moment s.e. >> look i have been saying all along that i think voters are responding -- let's not forget it's 18% of republican voters. it's not a ton of people but voters are responding to trump's style. i don't think they're in love with his substance because he hasn't really given us any sort of policy yet. but it is sort of a warning to the rest of the republican field and bernie sanders gives the same warning to the rest of the democratic field to talk like a normal person. talk not like a politician. you know talk like, you know you hear people talking at the dinner table. now, sally is right, you don't get to be president just because you wanna. you don't get to be president just because you know a guy in china and that's your foreign policy and i'm hopeful that voters have some more
7:41 am
requirements than just calling someone an idiot. but it is i think a reflection of how disaffected most voters feel by politicians. >> and i agree with s.e. to a point. i think you're being a little generous with why voters are supporting trump because it's not just that he's being candid it's what he's saying and he's saying certain deeply anti-immigrant deeply racially loaded things -- >> his immigration stance isn't what's resonating the most -- >> we can't unpack all that. >> it's anti-establishment talk. but, look we know that bias in all of its forms can take subtle -- can look very very subtle. he's speaking out against mexico and mexicans and i'm going to call that anti-establishment because it makes me feel more comfortable. it's disturbing 18% of anyone supports this guy with the stuff he's been saying period. >> let me just point out, no
7:42 am
conservative likes the idea of someone questioning the heroism of a p.o.w. i think they don't -- >> he's still at 18%. he's still at 18%. >> i don't think they fair what he's saying. they care -- they like how he's saying it because there's so many things he said that i think most conservatives actually would find repellent. i really do think it's more style than substance, and that's why the debate next week is going to be so important. >> nobody likes the u.s. senate nobody likes congress. >> but, again, i don't just think it's on style points alone. the broader thing here that i think we both agree is a disturbing trend is the sound you hear from the trumping down of politics right? everybody racing to race to the bottom to try and be heard over the din. again, if that -- you want to call it style, you want to call it substance, it's hard for me
7:43 am
to uncouple the two when you have a sitting member of the senate calling another senator a liar. he also said the president is the leading state sponsor of terrorism when you have a candidate for the presidency saying that the president his deal is akin to the holocaust, do you want to call that style, do you want to call that substance? i think it's hard to untangle. >> i don't know sally. democrats made a cottage industry of comparing bush to hitler so let's put -- enough with the vapors. like let's stop pretending we're shocked. >> i don't recall presidential candidates comparing bush to hitler hitler. >> that had nothing to do with israel. huckabee is actually talking about an actual player who was a part of the holocaust. >> you're defending the substance. come on, s.e. the iran deal to denuclearize iran is -- so you're siding with the statement that the iran deal to denuclearize iran supported
7:44 am
by the majority of the developing world and our u.n. partners is marching jews -- mafering marching jews to the gas chamber, you're siding with that statement. >> 100% an accurate statement if you believe -- >> it's not just style. this is substance. >> okay. i got to end it there. >> let me just finish -- you got to let me finish. if you believe that we just gave iran a boat load of cash to go fund state sponsored terrorism against israel which they want to wipe off the map, yeah that's an accurate statement and let's stop pretending we're offended just because it implicates the president who we'd like to protect. it's absolutely true. >> we should be able to disagree without dragging people into such insults. >> i have to agree. come on. it's like come on. s.e. cupp sally kohn. thank you so much.

turkey has grown so alarmed by asis attacks along its southern border it's asked for an urgent meeting with nato. nato says the consultations will begin tomorrow. the meeting follows a string of deadly attacks turkey blames on isis and it wants help establishing a buffer between turkey and the terror group. barbara starr is here to tell us more. >> reporter: good morning. the u.s. will be at the table in brussels when all the nato nations sit down to talk about this. turkey making its case that isis now presents a security threat to that country, which is a nato ally. right now what u.s. officials say is now that they have access to air bases in southern turkey closer to the syrian border
7:50 am
they will start talking to the turks about some sort of cooperation, some sort of arrangement not very specific yet about establishing some sort of isis-free zone along the turkish/syrian border. not clear that this is going to be an official no-fly zone with the u.s. military patrolling the skies all the time and, of course the u.s. has really pressed turkey in recent months to crack down on its own border, to stop fighters and weapons from flowing across into syria. by all accounts the recent isis attacks have unnerved the turks, but they are also going after kurdish forces. these are units that the turks believe are terrorists and separatists. the u.s. believes that some of them are very effective fighters against isis. it's becoming a complicated battlefield but the bottom line is it looks like the u.s. involvement, the u.s. military involvement is set to increase.
