tv   The Lead With Jake Tapper  CNN  August 20, 2015 1:00pm-2:01pm PDT

1:00 pm
\s our money lead. red ink on wall street as markets nose dive. i'm john berman. this is "the lead." also the politics lead. now he's fighting back, jeb bush and donald trump hold dueling town has, dueling in more than one sense of the word, as a new poll shows bush isn't even beating trump in his own state, you know, that place that gave his brother the white house. the world lead. who would you trust to inspect iran? well details that america's longtime enemy may play a role. the pop lead, turning the hypocrisy dial up. he found out he methoded his sisters. now josh dug garr is explaining
1:01 pm
why he had a paid account on an adult website. this is cnn breaking news. our politics lead in just a second, because first breaking news in the money lead. it's not good. stocks slipping, sliding, twitter getting its wings flipped as people are watching their 401(k)s flutter away. christina alesi is watching the dow dip deeper and deeper into the red, more than 350 points now, christina, what is going on here? >> there's a couple macro reasons and a, you have people looking at the price of oil f. actually. meaning that global demand will be a lot lower. so i've been that going on. then investors are questioning those fed minutes that came out yesterday, a couple mixed messages. some members of the fed's committee think we could see a rate hike. others want to hold off.
1:02 pm
investors overall see that coming down the pipe in september, so that again weighing on the market. now, on the microfront, several industries were taking a beating. you mentioned tech being one of them. media also got hit hard, disney, the darling of the media industry got hit hard, 5% down today. that is because investors are reevaluating the entire category, perhaps even more beloved than disney, netflix got hit as well, down about 7%, and this is all tied to the fact that the reality of subscribers moving from an ad-based revenue model to a more fee-generating revenue model, all of that will cause a lot of turbulence in the industry and investors are reevaluating the valuations in that -- in those particular industries, and tech got pulled down because of similar concerns. >> you can see it right there, down more than 2%, down more
1:03 pm
than 350 points, coming after the media stocks now. cristina, you are hearing people saying maybe we're near the end of this remarkable bull market, nearing correction level. do you get the sense this could be a trend for some time to come? >> if i had a dollar every time i heard this this year, john, i don't know. historically speaking we haven't had a correction since 2011. we've overdue from one. from historical standards, if you look at it, from a historical standpoint we had a correction every year and a half leading up to 2011. so we're overdue for one. maybe we're seeing some of that play out, but it's really too soon to tell. we'll have to wait until everyone comes back in september and we have some real trading volume to substantiate whether or not we'll get that correction, john. >> right now, today is a pretty bad day, there, cristina alesci,
1:04 pm
thank you very much. a clash of the titans? no, not them. them s once the front-runner jeb bush, and donald j. trump, trump has been burning bush since he blazed on the campaign trail, and the final toorching seems to have finally lit a fire until the former governor. even if the joyful tortoise has turned into a snapping turtle, he's still losing to trump in his own state. it's trump's face, not his on the cover of "time" magazine. yes, that's a bald eagle perched on donald trump's arm. in that interview with "time," he floated the idea of holding cnn hostage over the next debate. if i go to cnn and say, look, i'm going to have a massive audience and i say, i want $10 million for charity, nothing for myself, what happens? i'm not showing up, right? will he show up? you'll have to watch on september 16th and find out.
1:05 pm
i promise jake tapper, the guy usually here, will be there. he is one of the motte raters. i want to get to athena jones, in keane, new hampshire, where it's very exciting, full contact, and again even harder today. >> reporter: hi, john. that's right, up until just a few days ago, bush has been seemed hesitant to engage trump, but in the face of weak poll numbers, the gloves are finally coming off. >> you don't win when you're campaigning like this. >> reporter: jeb bush hitting back at donald trump today. >> you win when you connect with people about their aspirations, not about how, you know, great you are, how rich you are. >> those remarks coming on the heels of wednesday's war of words between bush and trump. the real estate mogul dissing bush with comments like this. >> i don't see how he's electable. jeb bush is a low energy person.
1:06 pm
>> reporter: echoing an emerging narrative that the former governor isn't energizing voters. >> you know what's happening to jeb's crowd, as you know, right down the street? they're sleeping. they're sleeping now. >> in fact one woman dozed off. even his fans say they're concerned about bush's lack of energy. >> he basically is just flat. he has no energy. out of all of the republican candidates, he's the one i feel safest with. he would be the one with the most experience. >> reporter: i asked him today how he's going to change that narrative? >> there's a big difference between donald trump and me. i have fought to republican and conservative causes al my adult life. >> reporter: new poll numbers show that he's struggling, even in florida. he also trails trump in iowa, pennsylvania, and here in new hampshire, a state seen as key to his run. >> the billionaire businessman
1:07 pm
has drawn crowds several times bigger than bush's. >> thank you very much. >> reporter: his campaign in alabama event was moved to a stadium after more than 35,000 fans rsvp'd, this as other candidates struggle to command the spotlight s senator marco rubio laying out his tax policy. >> as president i would bebin gill fundamentally overhauling our tax code. >> reporter: an event overshadowed by the trump/bush face-off. i asked bush why he's trailing in the new poll. he said he's beating clinton in florida, trump is losing to her, but john, that's actually not true. in this nub poll, trump is also beating clinton in florida as well. athena jones, thank you soech. appreciate it. i want to bring in ana
1:08 pm
navarr navarro, she is supporting jeb bush, and patty solis-doyle. and patty, i want to go to you first, not because i think there's any risk of you supporting donald trump, but because you have a very unique perspective. your father came to the united states illegally, you were born here, so donald trump would not only want to deport your father, but he would want to change the constitution to theoretically you wouldn't be a citizen right now. you wrote an op-ed about what my dad could teach donald trump. what lesson is that? >> look, it's unclear whether or not he would want to deport me, but here is -- here's what i think. now that donald trump is a clear front-runner for the republican party, he really is setting the tone and the agenda for immigration on the republican party. as a front-runner, he's put forth an immigration policy that is completely void of humanity. for me, i think that's not only
1:09 pm
irresponsible, but it's unseemly. sure, he hasn't given you a clue how he'll pay for the hundreds of billions that his immigration policy will cost, but in addition to the fiscal cost, there's also a human cost. so i wrote that op-ed just to show -- to give a face to my father's immigration story, to give a face to all of the stories of those 11 million people who are here. >> ana, you are not supporting donald trump, either, you are a big jeb bush supporter, but there are those wonder -- >> and i'm pretty sure, john, if he could deport he, he would. >> i think at this point you're right. let's talk about what donald trump is doing. there are people suggesting that he's dragged jeb bush into they debate on immigration on donald trump's own terms. i want you to listen to some sound today from new hampshire, where jeb bush defended himself for using the term "anchor baby"
1:10 pm
which a lot of people find controversial. >> do you regret using the term anchor baby on the radio? >> no, i didn't. do you have a better term? >> reporter: i'm asking you. >> you give me a better term and i'll use it. i'm serious. >> the phrase "anchor baby" refers to children born to undoirmted immigrants in the united states, how they become legal because of the birthright citizenship. it's a term people find objectionable. jeb bush says he doesn't believe in overthrowing birthright citizenship, yet he's using -- >> i heard that interview yesterday. the way he used it was he said so-called anchor babies. i think he was using a term that people are familiar with. as you said let's instead look at his position. he is against overturning the 14th amendment. >> no, you're absolutely right
1:11 pm
about that. every time he does get asked about that, he is crystal clear that his position is he does believe they should be citizens. many of the republican candidates do, but not all. >> john kasich, many, many republicans. it's not fair to paint everybody with a one broad trump brush. i think that there are some people that are in his corner, most definitely, 20% of the people, but i think there's a lot of other people. republicans like me, republicans represented by folks like jeb bush, marco rubio, who feel differently. >> patty, i want to ask you something about something athena brought up. donald trump is beating hillary clinton in florida, according to the latest quinnipiac poll. do you know who he's not beating in florida? joe biden. joe biden leading in that same quinnipiac poll in a head-to-head matchup with donald trump. discuss. >> okay. before i do discuss, i want to go back to the anchor babies
1:12 pm
comment. when the reporter asked jeb bush if he had a better word, the answer is babies. but now i'll talk about biden. look, i think that i have always said if joe biden got in this race, he would be an extremely formidable candidate. i had the privilege of working for him in the '08 race. he is wildly likable, incredibly relatable, a sitting vice president. he has been in the room with barack obama when those tough decisions have been made. he's got incredible relationships with congress on both sides of the aisle, and i think, you know, should he get in, i think it will be a good thing for the race, for competition, for voters, for the country. primaries are a good thing. >> ana, i want to ask you not about biden, but about trump in florida. again, you are sporting jeb bush, but supportive of marco rubio, trump is beating both of those guys in your state.
1:13 pm
how is trump beating your guys in your state, ana? >> you know, i don't think that's coincidence. i'm glad you point out as my guys. i supported marco rubio for senator, i supported jeb bush for governor, i'm supporting just about bush for president. i think there's mainstream floridians in the same position as i am. when you see the numbers, i think the mainstream floridians are being split between jeb bush and marco rubio. let me tell you something, there are five floridians, people with florida ties that are in this race. ben carson is from florida. mike huckabee is now from florida, jeb bush is from florida, and if you count -- >> i'm going to give you the opportunity. are you calling on one of them to drop out so the other can pick up the support and beat -- >> oh, listen, i think it's not about what i'm calling on them to do.
1:14 pm
i can tell you that -- i can tell you i have conversations with them before they got into the race. right now everybody is in the race. i think we're going to respect the race, and everybody's got to go through the process. i want to comment on biden. this idea of biden running, for republicans it's christmas, kwanzaa and hanukkah all rolled up into one in august. biden has a lot of that bill clinton "it" factor. you can disagree with him, and i do on policy on so many issues, but it's very hard to know joe biden and not like joe biden. hillary clinton has a problem with that and with trust worthiness. >> call it the biden festivus. the nuclear concern, that iran will play too much of a role -- lindsey graham says it's like allowing the inmates to run the jail. so what's really inside this nuclear deal?

aren't you lactose intolerant? this isn't lactose. it's milk. ♪ welcome back to "the lead." topping or world lead today, waning support for the iran nuclear deal, a new poll shows that the majority of americans want congress to reject the agreement, this comes amid growing concern and outrage on capitol hill over an alleged side deal, allegedly allowing iran to participate in nuclear inspections at one of its most notorious military sites. cnn chief national security correspondent jim scuitto takes a look at that story. >> reporter: this is iran's par chin military facility, long suspected to be a site of attempt to militarize the nuclear program.
1:20 pm
it's an arrangement that has critics in an uproar. republican senator and presidential candidate lindsey graham saying, quote, allowing the iranians to inspect their own nuclear sites, particularly a notorious mill tar site is like allowing the inmates to run the jail. a senior state department official told cnn that the international atomic energy agency would have, quote, total oversight of sampling and inspections of parch-hine. iran is not self-snepg, the official said, but it would not that they would play a role. iaea inspectors must be present for monitoring them at the time. swabs and containment bags used would be provided by the iaea. >> you're literally taking a material that looks a bit like
1:21 pm
cotton, swiping it over a surface and putting it in a bag. if it's a face-saving measure for the iranians to do that, visually watch over, then i think -- >> reporter: today. iaea director was, quote, disturbed by statements suggesting that the iaea given responsibility to iran, given that the iaea has long established protocols for inspecting nuclear facilities or suspected facilities and the agreement will follow those protocols. today the state department emphasized that the inspection of the current facilities will be more robust. >> we are very confident that this very aggressive inspection regimen that's in place in the deal going forward for the future is the strongest ever peacefully gored. >> the reason this is so key is this is the site where it was suspected that iran experimented with weaponizing militarizing
1:22 pm
the nuclear program years ago. very sensitive site. i have to say, john, you know, initial reports of this were bigger than what it was, based on my conversations with the administration officials. >> there's been a frenzy. >> no question. >> over the last 24 hours that iran will be able to inspect itself, and one of the big things here, exclusively, but now, i mean, there's -- there is a bit there. >> they're not going to be able to inspect the site on their own, but iranian inspectors, it seems based on this agreement will take the samples and monitored either by staff present or by video camera, and then those staff will take those samples and go through all the protocols to test it. so it's not the same as inspecting on their own, but they will participate. now, to be fair, the iaea president comes out and says, listen, they're doing doing it on their own. this is a protocol we have used in many countries before, and it's worked, it's not new.
1:23 pm
that's their position. >> still too much for many. >> it's an open question for sure. >> jim scuitto, thanks. good to have you here. houses on fire after two police officers kill an 18-year-old after they say he pulled out a gun. now police bracing for more violence tonight. plus admitting to being the most critical hypocrite i have. josh duggar has admitted to a secret porn addiction and cheating on his wife. that's ahead. across america, people like basketball hall of famer dominique wilkins... ...are taking charge of their type 2 diabetes... ...with non-insulin victoza®. for a while, i took a pill to lower my blood sugar. but it didn't get me to my goal.

1:40 pm
he's done that with every challenge he's face indeed in the white house and afterwards. i think the fact that he's reached this age and he's accomplished so much, gives him a sense that whatever happens, as he put it, he's in god's hands, but he's done the very best he can. he served his country and the world in a very remarkable way, and at 90, he is as articulate literally -- and i don't exaggerate -- as he was in his 40s and 50s when i met him. >> articulate jumped out. he was talking about medicine, oncology, and the geography of nepal. it was great to see -- >> he's a renaissance man. he loves the outdoors, climbing, history, politics, climbing. he's deeply involved in religion.

1:42 pm
a time when he tried to integrate this church, way before he was running for president, and when they refused to allow any black members, he and his family left and formed their own church, which was integrated. so religion is not just theological exercise, it's an exercise in values. he carried those values of tolerance, equality, i think, john, it really is suv fused in his character, and i think it gives him confidence whatever happens in the future, he's done his best and god's will as he's seen it. >> he says his's not done yet. thank you very much for being with us. >> thank you. coming up, shots across the border, new fears about what's happening between the two koreas. how serious are the chass of an even bigger conflict. plus weeks ago he admitted to methods his sister as a
