tv CNN Newsroom With Brooke Baldwin CNN September 9, 2015 11:00am-1:01pm PDT
hi there. i'm brooke baldwin, and you're watching cnn here. i'm live in washington, d.c. today. we bring think story straight out of our nation's capital. breaking news involving a big name. listen this, word is getting thrown around a lot, bromance playing out right in front of capitol hill. republican presidential candidates, these are two men obviously vying for their party's romance sort of coming together, donald trump and this man here, senator ted cruz just wrapped, just spoke in front of thousands of people actually who showed up, gathered for this big real on the hill's west lawn. they may be rivals in this race for the white house, but they are standing together at this stop the iran deal real, the
deal to prevent iran from developing nuclear weapons is expected to go through, and this week it has garbered enough stepth support to withstand any opposition in congress. that obviously did not silence either cruz or trump today. >> if i win the presidency, i guarantee you that those four prisoners are back in our country before i ever take office, i guarantee that. they will be back before i ever take office because they know that's what has to happen, okay? they know it, and if they don't know it, i'm telling them right now. so, i have a story that just came out an hour ago, and as president obama calls him very routinely, he calls him the supreme leader.
our president is calling the person who is really the boss in iran supreme leader and i look at people shaking their head and they can't believe it, but it just came out a little while ago he said israel will not exist in 25 years, think of that. he just said this. he also said very strongly, very, very strongly, that this is the end of our dealings with the united states. we want nothing more to do with them. we're not going to do anything right here. we made this deal. it's a phenomenal deal. we're not going to deal with the united states anymore, and it's what he just said, and this was a very short period of time ago. so, they rip us off, they take our money, they make us look like fools and now they are back to being who they really are. they don't want israel to survive. they will not let israel survive
with incompetent leadership like we have right now. israel will not survive, and then when it's all done or they think it's all done, they come out with these unbelievable nasty statements that israel won't be around in 25 years and that we have no dealings and we will have no further dealings with the united states. now the people that we were negotiating with and were working on the sanctions with, including and as an example russia who is selling tremendous missiles to iran, you know that, ballistic missiles, being sold. all of these countries, all of these countries are going to do business with iran. they are going to make lots of money and lots of other things with iran and we're going to do and we're going to get nothing. >> if you vote to send billions of dollars to jihadists who have pledged to murder americans then
you bear direct responsibility for the murders carried out with the dollars you have given them. you cannot wash your hands of that blood, and let me say to republican leadership -- hold on. i come not to bury caesar but to praise him. i want to give a path forward. there are two men in washington, d.c. who can defeat the deals. the names are majority leader mcconnell and speaker john boehner. under the terms of the corker/cardin review legislation the clock does not begin ticking until the president hands over the entire deal, and he has not handed over the side agreements.
what that means is that all that has to happen is for mitch mcconnell and john boehner to say the congressional review period has not started. under federal law it is illegal for obama to lift sanctions. >> all right. so those two men just wrapped up speaking. i have our chief political sport dana bash in the thick of things on capitol hill, also joining me our chief national security correspondent jim sciutto and well to all of you. dana bash, you're in it. i feel like the story is almost twofold. on the one hand you have these two republican, what should be political rivals, want their party's nominations, here they are coming together, i don't know if it's about scoring points and, two, what was donald trump getting at by bringing up the president and the ayatollah and israel there? what was his point? >> reporter: what was his point? i think -- i'm going to try to be the trump whit perrer here.
that's what i'm going to try to do. i think what he's trying to say in a nutshell that he will be better for israel than barack obama is and did it in typical kind of trump speak and that was red meat for this crowd and then some. i mean, this is a crowd where you have signs all around, not only supporting israel but arguing that as you just heard from one of the two, that by giving iran back its money you're basically funding its terrorism, alleged terrorism against iran -- against israel and other countries in the west. but, you know, back to the whole question, brooke, about these two men and why they even appeared together at this rally considering they are competitors, ted cruz basically invited donald trump. his people told me that he all but admitted that to me a few minutes ago and it's because he says, look, he brings crowds. >> he brings tv cameras. >> and he brings tv cameras and
it's good to have a united front on this issue and other issues. when it comes to donald trump and ted cruz, it's important to note that they are all kind of on the same page on republican side about not liking this deal. the question is they are running for commander in chief. if any of them becomes the president, what are they going to do about it, and they very much differ on that issue? ted cruz says rip it up on day one but not donald trump. i asked him about that. listen to this. >> i say that this deal will be a totally different deal. this will be a very different deal. ripping up is tough. lost all of our so-called allies in the deal. they are all making a lot of money. we're not making anything. they are all selling missiles and getting involved in iran and use the money we gave to iran. i will do something very strong. >> you and senator cruz seem to have an unusual relationship when it comes to republican competitors. why do you have this bromanc sneh. >> well, it is a little bit afro mans. i like him. he likes me.
he's backed me 100%, when i came about illegal immigration, he was the one person really, and there were a couple of other candidates and ted cruz was out there and backed me very strongly as well as anybody else and i always respected that. i thought that was very nice and he asked me to come along here and i guess he figured that it would be crowded. we certainly have gotten a big crowd. >> bromance with a "b." >> reporter: he took it as romance. do with that as you will, brooke. >> on that note we're heard from secretary kerry today saying, listen, they can rally all they want. the deal is done. what did secretary kerry say essentially? >> that's essentially what he says and it's what you also hear from officials privately, that basically a lot of people, you know, officials feel, even republicans, kind of know that this deal is going through. they know that they say that this is the best thing for the world, for israel, for the united states and the u.s.
administration really feels, brooke, that once this deal is implemented they believe that iran will live up to its end of the bargain and all of this kind of talk surrounding the campaign will all be for nothing because the deal will go through and nobody is going to rip it up on day one. it's pretty impossible that that would happen. it's not going to be possible to change the deal. it's not going to be possible to rip up the deal because the rest of the world who is very eager to do business with iran, as donald trump just said, is not going to backtrack and is not going to renege on the deal, so this deal is going through with the united states it seems now that the administration has the votes with the u.s., even if the u.s. were to backtrack in a new president, it would still be going through. brooke? >> we should also point out hillary clinton this morning here in washington, she weighed in on this and let me ask you about that in a second. jim sciutto, to you, you know, dana bash was pointing out the different pieces of red meat that donald trump and ted cruz
waved out at the crowd of supporters on the hill. my question to you is i'm looking at this, too, through the glass of a week from today, i mean, here they are drumming up support a week from today. they will be on a stage in simi valley, california, at the reagan library, part of our cnn presidential debate and, listen, donald trump, i mean, just hearing the post-game right after he spoke, ana navarro saying light on substance and heavy on insults. heard a lot about losers and winning. how will he fare next week on that stage when asked tough questions about foreign policy? >> well, on some of these issues is message is going to be the same. it's going get tougher, right, and that's been his message on iran, that if i were president, donald trump, i would be tougher. i would get a better deal and i would negotiate it and he'll say the same thing with china. if i were president i'd be tougher on china. they wouldn't be able to attack and carry out these cyber
attacks and devalue their currency. i would kick president putin out of ukraine, that's essentially the message, and it's not unique actually in the republican field. that's essentially the message from the other candidates as well on all those issues. the question is in that debate will they go the next step and explain how they do that and actually get results from being tougher, right? elise made the point that you can renegotiate this, you could try. this deal has essentially left the station. you could change the policy with iran, but you won't have the same coalition of allies with you, the ship's already sailed for the europeans, china and russia, they are moving on as well, so you -- you could do the policy again but you wouldn't have the same allies. the same question holds for a china or a russia. you can get tougher but how do you then get results, and that will be the question and that debate. will you hear the same rhetoric or will you hear a plan for moving forward? frankly this early in a presidential race, you know, chances are probably pretty even as to whether you're going to
get to that level. >> elise, just quickly to button this up. you know, hillary clinton knows that this deal has left the station. essentially this morning she said what? >> well, she kind of took credit a little bit for, you know, getting iran to this point, not only with helping build the sanctions that got them to the table but also her aides were the ones that started secret talks but then kind of took it one further and said this deal is strong. i support it, but there needs to be a lot of other things to kind of shore up support for israel, support for gulf allies in terms of counting iran's other activity in the region, against hezbollah and against hamas, and i think she offered a lot more specifics even than we've heard necessarily from this administration about what you do to do that, brooke, so she laid out kind of a five-point plan about how you implement the deal, the deal plus, and i think this in a way was also able to help her pivot from the widening
e-mail controversy. >> which we'll delve into on tomorrow. just a reminder, jim sciutto in tonight for erin burnett. the republican presidential candidates facing off in back-to-back debates. watch next wednesday night at 6:00 and 8:00 eastern only here on cnn and tell us what do you want to hear from these candidates? send us tweets, tweet us your debate questions using t the #cnndebate and donald trump live on cnn 7:00 in the morning and later in the day jeb bush will be live on "the lead" with jake tapper at 4:00 p.m. eastern. do not miss those interviews here on cnn. coming up next, all eyes on apple today. new gadgets, unveiling new products. it's already generating huge buzz. we'll walk you through some of the big surprises thus far. also a refugee crisis at its
breaking point. cnn is there on the front lines walking alongside families, sharing the remarkable stories. we'll actually speak with somebody live who welcomed one of these refugee families into her own home. what that experience was like straight ahead. and the tragic fallout after a baptist pastor's name is linked to the adultery website ashley madison. how his family is now responding. you're watching cnn. i'm brooke baldwin. we'll be right back.
you tuck here... you tuck there. if you're a toe tucker... because of toenail fungus, ask your doctor now about prescription kerydin. used daily, kerydin drops may kill the fungus at the site of infection and get to the root of your toe tucking. kerydin may cause irritation at the treated site. most common side effects include skin peeling... ...ingrown toenail, redness, itching, and swelling. tell your doctor if you have any side effect that bothers you or does not go away.
stop toe tucking... and get the drop on toenail fungus. ask your doctor today about kerydin. wheall i can think abouthit, is getting relief. only nicorette mini has a patented fast-dissolving formula. it starts to relieve sudden cravings fast. i never know when i'll need relief. that's why i only choose nicorette mini.
still been listening in to this anti-iran nuke deal rally that's been happening on capitol hill. obviously this is a face you recognize, sarah palin. she's speaking right now, but i want to turn your attention. we mentioned donald trump and ted cruz spoke moments ago so she's speaking and something just happened, a little bit of a
scuffle involving a protester. roll t. >> the whole premise of this thing, it's wrong. we're negotiating with the braggadocios number one stayed sponsor of terrorism. good. obama never even clinched a fist against a wicked regime where anti-semitism and holocaust denial is official ideology and with stayed-sanctioned torture and killing of women just because they are women, well, stoning, amputations, those things that are just national policy and what has changed? nothing's really changed except hillary clinton back then, she insist that had iran is seeking
nukes but now she says that's okay. she spins faster than one of those thousands of iranian centrifuges. the blood of u.s. soldiers is on the ayatollah's hands and we dare shake that hand in negotiations. our sons and daughters -- >> that was a moment obviously our cameras caught. you saw a gentleman being pulled away presumably by capitol hill police. sarah palin continued on speaking. don't know if he was arrested and don't know the details of who he was. we'llwork on it and get it for you again. happening right now on capitol hill. it is september which means new apple products. right now in san francisco the folks at apple are unveiling their latest and greatest and they just showed off the new and improved apple tv, new ipad models and you have the apple pencil. that event is still happening.
we're waiting to hear about the iphone so let me bring in digital life-style expert mario armstrong and host of "reliable sources," brian stelter. >> before we get to the ail pencil which has totally piqued my curiosity, the apple tv, did i read something about talking to your television or integrating siri? sort of like "back to the future." >> we still have to do our own laundry. no robots in the house to handle that. >> too bad, too bad. >> but we can talk to apple tv using siri. this is a technology where you can do voice search so you can say an actor's name or particular movie and search across all its library, netflix, hulu, showtime hand more and you can even do a category. i have some nieces and nephews coming over or a birthday party with kids, what's a good thing to play and it will make recommendations? >> instead of using the actual
remote control we just sit and talk to the screen? >> you have both there, so you still have the remote control and that's been upgraded, too, something called touch so instead of clicking you can actually just swipe left to right or down or opt to use your voice if you want to. >> dude, 2015, marty mcfly. brian stelter, i know you're nerding out over this. >> of course. >> i don't know if i'm so behind the eight ball as far as not having an apple tv yet, but how is this changing, i don't know, our tv habits? >> so many companies that want to influence the way you're watching tv in the living room. apple is one of them and some of these announcements day are playing catchup. comcast already lets you talk to the tv and amazon lets you play games on your tv but apple is so influential because it sells so many tens of millions of products that whatever they do and whenever they do it it makes big waves so more and more people will be interested in buying this apple tv which makes the interface on your tv easier
to access and makes it easier to navigate and improves the viewing experience. it is their vision for the future of tv and they are making a big step forward with it today. >> okay. mario, back to you on this. >> yeah. >> ipad, i mean why -- why make it so much bigger? i thought we all liked having compact little devices? >> exactly. because as brian mentioned it's apple. they are one of the few companies that can actually get away with making adjustments or even in some cases minor adjustments to things and it all of a sudden becomes a big thing. as brian pointed out amazon and others have always had voice search and other capabilities and when it comes to the ipad no one has really done a tablet as good as the ipad, hands down, so they came out with an ipad pro which to me is really more focused on the business audience and enterprise. it's a little bit big and almost 13 inches, but this thing is powerful, like almost as powerful as a laptop or desk top computer, and in some cases they are saying 80% faster than some pcs out in the last four months
so this is a big deal. going to start at 799 bucks and what i saw today, the productivity tools and drawings, architectural design, things doing with the pencil now on the screen was amazing to me. >> that's what i was saving the best for last. apple pencil, what's the functionality of that? >> technically speaking it is a stylus, but this stylus is different than any other stylus you may have used before because it actually interfaces with the ipad differently because there's something called force touch, the pencil can detect are you doing a light touch on the screen, meaning do you want a thin line or are you pressing down very hard meaning you want a very thick line so this opens up a lot of ideas and applications and uses, everything from health care to design in architecture and doing documents in presentations. >> pretty cool, pretty cool. mario armstrong, brian stelter. go ahead. say it again. >> overall i would give them
this emoggy. >> emoji pillows works comes up with this stuff, thanks, fellows, appreciate it. >> next, running for their lives. one analyst who has covered decades of war in terror says he's never seen anything like this crisis. my next guest actually took in an entire refugee family. we'll hear directly from her coming up. also ahead republican presidential candidate jeb bush stepping into the spotlight on network tv and does everything from mock donald trump to criticize his brother and tries to make some jokes. did they fall flat? did they work? that's next.
you premium like clockwork. month after month. year after year. then one night, you hydroplane into a ditch. yeah... surprise... your insurance company tells you to pay up again. why pay for insurance if you have to pay even more for using it? if you have liberty mutual deductible fund™, you could pay no deductible at all. sign up to immediately lower your deductible by $100. and keep lowering it $100 annually, until it's gone. then continue to earn that $100 every year. there's no limit to how much you can earn and this savings applies to every vehicle on your policy.
400,000 more new arrivals are expected before the year is over. this exclusive cnn video is taken just off the coast of turkey here. more than 30 people at a time cramming into this small pontoon boat being smuggled across the mediterranean with hopes of reaching greece, and that is just the beginning. look at the map with me. this is the route here. if they are lucky they will get through macedonia and serbia and hungary where squalid refugee camps and aggressive police have families running, running here for their lives. cnn's arwa damon and a photographer have been alongside those families sharing their stories. >> reporter: this family right here are from khobani, syria, where a year ago there were very fierce clashes with isis. this particular family tried to go back after they fled because they thought it was safe and isis launch eded a counterattac two months ago and then they decided to leave.
this woman in the red sweater, she actually gave birth when she arrived in greece. she was pregnant in the dinghy, and then the minute she landed she couldn't walk anymore and she had to wait in greece and gave birth. that baby, a little girl, she is just 11 days old, and they made this entire journey, a big risk for them, yes, but that is because they believe that if they stayed back home they would most certainly end up dead. >> that little baby 11 days old, and they are walking, as desperation grows, leader in asking all of their neighbor nations to open their borders. my next guest did not wait for the government to step in and went to a refugee center near berlin to hand out diapers and food and left with four houseguests. she wrote about her experiments with buzz feed and joins me now.
thank you so much for joining me and i know you fled rwanda back in 1994. this is personal for you, but can you first explain to me, it's one thing to think about helping, but the fact that you on your own volition went to the refugee center about a week and a half ago, tell me why. >> hi, brooke, thanks for having me on your program. as you say, it's really personal for me and my family and i. we fled ruineda and went to uganda and someone took us in on our way to uganda and we had a place to shower and sleep in a real bed and that was a turning point for us. we felt human again. for me that was my initial mode vags. we went out and how the refugees were being treated and didn't have the capacity to resist them all so we initially went out to help and once i was there i realized that this is a big story, this is something that i needed to cover for buzz feed and i did that and in the midst of it all i met hamid and his
family and we spoke through a friend of mine who spoke arabic and i don't, unfortunately, and their story resonated with me, a no-brainer and asked them to come and stay with me for the weekend >> before i get to them i said something that i jotted down. you said you wanted to feel human again. what does not feeling human, perhaps like so many of these refugees, what does that feel like? >> i mean, i can't even possibly begin to imagine how it feels like because leaving rwanda was very different from the way these people have been coming from syria and as you just described it for, crossing many, many borders coming from turkey and greece in a raft boat, something i can't imagine but this is something that we all have in common, that we're human and for someone to sleep in a real bed, to smile a little bit and eat and talk and tell their story, that's part of what makes us human and i think it was really, really important for me to give a little bit back to
them. >> tell me this family's story, who are they and where have they come from? >> they came from aleppo and qubani as well. once the war started things went downhill. they fled and went to irbil, kurdish iraq and, for example, the youngest daughter has -- she bumped her head when the bombs were falling in the neighborhood in aleppo and bumped her head in the sink and has been treated and her eye is giving her a bit of a struggle, and so they are just really, really nice, calm kids but also very traumatized. they don't sleep very well at night. it's a really loving family and seeing them together and seeing them play with each other and
it's just -- i don't know. it makes my heartache that people have to go through things like that, you know, normal people like you and i and, yeah, it -- it's really hard. >> i can't even begin to imagine. our heart obviously goes out to all these people. where are they now, and are you able to stay in touch with them or not at all? >> yes, we are very much in touch. since they couldn't stay with me in my apartment since i live in a shared art we found a hostel in the end for them and they live in a little apartment within that hostel. it's really small but it's comb and they have their own spot and don't have to share it with a million other people and a little kitchen, i've been there and they have invited me over. in fact, i'm going to go this weekend to celebrate a birthday, which was last week, didn't have time to celebrate and we'll do it this weekend. you two kids started school and i have a lot of great people who speak arabic and are willing to go to the doctor and help out as much as they can.
that's what's happening. i'm in touch with them. we're over touch and we communicate by emojis because we don't speak each other's language, but, yeah, would i say for now they are well but they kind of also apprehensive because they don't know where they will be staying. >> you are a good soul, and i feel like human emotion would transcend any sort of language barrier. thank you so much for sharing the stories, thank you. >> thank you. i need to remind all of you one week from tonight the republican candidates will face off at cnn's debate including jeb bush, but first he's going late night, criticizing his brother and mocking donald trump. the video, we'll talk about it next.

let me reexplained you again the next big republican debate one week from tonight right here on cnn and as donald trump continues to lead in the polls, jeb bush is hoping to chip away at his front-runner status and his numbers. he's getting a little help from the new host of "the late show" stephen colbert. jeb bush appeared last night on the debut episode, and in a clip that was actually edited out of the final cut and posted online and shared all over the place, jeb bush weighed in first here on the iran nuclear deal. >> i think president obama is being naive to trust the ayatollahs and this deal will create an even more unstable middle east and it troubles me. >> that answer wasn't good enough for stephen colbert, you see you can so he asked to help him be a little more trumpy. >> i will build a wall between the united states and iran and make mexico pay for it!
>> okay, yeah. [ cheers and applause ] >> thank you. >> trucks are strong. i will turn the national mall in a golf course and china will respect that. i promise to put meatloaf on the $10 bill and give little john a cabinet position which would send the message that this great nation will never turn down for wood. >> that sounds presidential. thank you, no, president jeb bush. >> did you ever think little john would come out of president bush's mouth? no. tv cricket with me and senior politics editor for "the daily beast" jackie kucinich. we all know this is about the candidates going on the shows
and showing a different side and showing some personality and eric i was reading your notes, you said to my producer saying jeb wasn't awful but -- what did you think? >> exactly. first of all, little john did not come out of his mouth, the words little john did not come out of his mouth, but, yeah, jeb was trying so hard to be relaxed and trying so hard to be off the cuff that he was neither, and as you noted the clip where he was the most funny, where he made fun of trump was cut out of the broadcast so we saw a bush who was clearly nervous, who was having trouble loosening up, who seemed a little wary of stephen colbert at first because, you know, it was the first show and it was hard to tell whether stephen colbert was going to make a joke of everything or earnestly talk to him about the issues which he tried to do. he got about halfway to the goal line on this one. he showed some relaxation and some different sides of himself,
but he looked so up tight and so uncomfortable that it was hard to enjoy the moment. >> okay. halfway to the goal line. jackie, i heard someone joking today that maybe jeb bush could use colbert's writers walking around on him on the campaign trail. that was pretty funny. how do you think he did had. >> someone gave him some pretty good advice. don't try to be funny. let stephen colbert be funny. you're not there to interview and he did not do that. give him that, and many a politician has sort of fallen by the wayside at hands of stephen colbert. we all are meant for -- he's kind of the master of making politicians look foolish. i don't think jeb bush looked foolish. was he a little uptight? sure, it's jeb bush but the clip where he was make fun of trump which was online, not during the show, it showed his deadpan, it showed kind of his sense of humor which has to help him in the long run. >> moving along in trying to show a little bit more
personality file, eric, let's talk about hillary clinton because we know she taped on ellen degeneres, we know that, she shook it a little bit and there's amy schumer and amy schumer mojo in her atmosphere can help her as well. a lot has been written about a strategy shift in the campaign. read the "new york times" piece yesterday, hey, get out there and show a more personable side. how choreographed do you think this was and will it work? >> incredibly. all have you to do is look at a politician like barack obama who is a master at appearing on these tv shows. he goes on "the tonight show" and goes on "the daily show" and colbert, at ease, witty. if he's asked to dance, he looks good doing it. you know, i don't want to oversell this but he's very good at doing this so when you see people like hillary clinton and jeb bush who are not good at doing it, it's painfully obvious. it seems that this is something that presidential candidates now have to do. they have to go on these shows
and be personable and try to show another side of themselves, but, again, if they have a hard time letting go, have a hard time relaxing, sometimes it's -- it's painful to watch. sometimes it's uncomfortable to watch. hillary clinton did a better job than bob jush did, but they both pale in comparison to the obamas, both michelle and barack, who are very good at doing these sorts of things. >> is this all about being able to sing al green off the cuff? is that really all it's about to sit in the oval office? i mean, come on. >> of course not. you have to say that hillary clinton, this isn't her first rodeo, not the first time she's been on these shows. been doing this stuff all the way to her first presidential run and probably before that with leno and you know when she was first lady, so, you know, you would think she would be a little bit more comfortable and this is about reaching a different audience, particularly women, as we know, hillary clinton launched her -- her
campaign to women on monday so this is about appealing to them and, you know, she was -- she was softer. she was fun, you know, for hillary clinton. soled ellen interview was probably a success as far as the clinton campaign is concerned. >> and, brooke, if i could break in, i would also point out it's about creating stories like this, where we're talking about them. we're not talking about how badly donald trump is beating jeb bush and we're not talking about hillary clinton's e-mail >> you mentioned the "t" word. see, i wasn't going to go there. i hear you loud and clear. that's exactly right. they both won because we're talking about them in a lighter way. thank you both. >> it was a pleasure. >> again, reminder, republican presidential candidates facing off in back-to-back debates. watch next wednesday night september 16th at 6:001 and 8:00 eastern only on cnn. we will be there at the reagan library. coming up next, the tragic fallout after a baptist pastor whose name was one of those outs

hour two, you're watching cnn. i'm brooke baldwin. thanks for being with me. let's begin with a big-name bromance playing out on capitol hill right now. republican presidential candidates, both rivals vying for their party's nomination, donald trump and senator ted cruz just finished addressing thousands of supporters gathered on capitol hill's west lawn, and they may be rivals in this race for the white house, but they today stood together at this stop the iran deal rally. this is a six-nation deal to prevent iran from developing nuclear weapons. it's really expected now to go
through and this week it garnered enough support to withstand any opposition in congress, but that did not silence cruz or trump today. >> never ever ever in my life have i seen any transaction so incompetently negotiated as our deal with iran, and i mean never. now, ted and everybody else have gone through all of the details and we can talk about the 24 days which is ridiculous. we can talk about the $150 billion, which, by the way, they get even if the deal isn't approved, they get it just for going to the table, we can talk about the fact that we have four wonderful people over there, and frankly they are never going to come back with this group, and i will say this, if i win the presidency i guarantee you that those four prisoners are back in our country before i ever take
office, i guarantee that. they will be back before i ever take office because they know that's what has to happen, okay? they know it, and if they don't know i'm telling them right now. >> it's worth remembering that if this deal goes through we know to an absolute certainty people will die. americans will die, israelis will die, europeans will die. osama bin laden never had $100 billion. he was filled with billus hatred and using rudimentary tools and murdered nearly 3,000 americans on september 11, 2001. we're now talking about giving the ayatollah khamenei a theocratic homicidal maniac who hates america every bit as much as bin laden did, giving him
$100 billion to carry out his murderous plan. >> let's be transparent. it was the senator, senator cruz, who invited donald trump to this event speaking frankly, saying, listen, an army of cameras follows this republican front-runner wherever he goes so bring on donald trump, and trump himself, he really told our own chief political correspondent dana bash that he is indeed a big fan of ted cruz. >> well, it is a little bit afro mans, i like him. i like him, he likes me and has backed me 100%. when i came about illegal immigration and he is was only person, and a couple of other candidates, and ted cruz was out there and real backed me very strongly as you know, as well as anybody else, and i always respect that had. i thought that was very nice and he asked me to get along here, come along, and i guess he figured we'd get a big crowd and certainly we have gotten a big crowd. >> after donald trump and ted cruz spoke you see here sarah palin. she was up at the podium and you see this melee in front of her.
it appears a heckler disrupted her speech. not who or what his complaint was but our cameras captured that. let me if to our cnn political reporter sarah murray who is there now as well. you just spoke with donald trump. what did he tell you? >> reporter: yeah, i did just speak with donald trump, and i did not ask him about iran but i asked him about another crisis that the entire world is dealing with right now and that's this influx of syrian refugees, and i asked him after we've seen he's heartbreaking gripping images what he thought america's role should in helping these refugees. here's what he had to say. >> i think we should help, but i think we have to be very careful because frankly we have very big problems. we're not going to have a country if we don't start getting start. we can't help everybody throughout the world. europe should help, russia, china, big beneficiary, they are not doing anything. the gulf states are doing nothing, whether it's saudi arabia, qatar, any of the gulf states, they are doing nothing. they should all help.
>> reporter: and it's interesting, brooke, you hear him there basically saying the u.s. can't be everyone's savior, that these other countries need to step up to help these syrian refugees. that's really the first time we've heard donald trump weigh in on this crisis. >> one of the questions several of these candidates are responding to. thank you very much. speaking of this iran deal, know this was an anti-iran nuclear deal rally but hillary clinton spoke this morning weighing in on this as well. the democratic front-runner said without the agreement iran could at any moment be months away from amazing enough material for a nuclear weapon. here she was this morning. >> my approach will be distrust and var five. we should anticipate that iran will test the next president. they will want to see how far they can bend the rules. that won't work if i'm in the white house. >> now for some analysis on this iran nuclear deal let me bring in our cnn political commentator
and jennifer rubin, opinion writer for "washington post." thank you both for joining me. peter, straight to you. you know, fascinating sort of this take that you have, you write about how, you know, your argument was that it was donald trump who inadvertently helped president obama get this deal through, getting conservatives' eyes off that particular ball. can you explain how you mean. >> sure, i don't think donald trump is the main factor by any mean, but one of the things that happened when trump really went in the race is that the media focus turned to the issue that he was pushing, of course. trump is against the iran deal but his bigger focus was on mexico and actually on china and during this critical period in august when -- when the anti-deal side needed to basically block out the sun by focusing on the iran deal the media attention followed trump and paid more attention to illegal immigration. that's the point i was making. >> jennifer, i want is to-to-ask about that. you want to respond to that. >> i don't think that's the case at all it. came down to whether the
democrats were willing to go up against the white house and go up against harry reid and you saw the very painful statements, cory booker being the best example, where he essentially criticized the deal very strenuously and wound up voting for it or saying he would vote for it so i think this comes down to politics. there was plenty of discussion on both sides and frankly just about every senator said on the record and privately that this was one of the most discussed, most lobbied issues they can remember in years. they had plenty of discussion. >> jennifer, they also said the opponents had provided no reasonable alternative. >> but that's not true, peter. >> even though they criticized. >> no, look -- >> when the europeans especially said this sanctioned regime will collapse. the republicans had no answer for that. >> yes, they did, in senator menendez statement and senator schumer's statement. they lay out a very coherent plan to increase pressure on iran, to go back and renegotiate the deal. senator menendez concedes that
it was a mistake not to push forward on his sanctions last year when they had the opportunity to. i don't think this president could get a better deal, but i'm absolutely certain the next one could, including hillary clinton. >> okay. hold on, hold on. hang on, hang on, hang on because the deal is basically done. let's be on the same page that the train has left the station, so to speak, but jennifer to you. listening to donald trump, he wasn't up at podium for very long today on the hill. when you -- it was not a lot of details, not a lot of substance. heavy on insults and heavy on what a lot of americans seem to love in him talking about winning and losers. it's working for him. if, if, jennifer, he were to get the republican party nomination, you talk to a lot of republicans, they say, my goodness, that will damage the brand. >> oh, yes. i mean, all the republicans are simultaneously praying and working to make sure that that doesn't happen. i think just about any democrat, including bernie sanders, would beat donald trump in a general
election. i think the effort right now on the republicans or the hope is that as fall turns into winter and we get closer to the actual balloting, that voters will get more serious, that they will start looking at the issues and start thinking about someone like that having his finger on the button. isn't that absolutely a petrifying thought, and they will make a selection from one of the many qualified candidates. unlike the democrats, the republicans have many choices. they are not stuck with a preordained from uner. >> they will all be on the stage next wednesday night. interesting to see how they all respond to southern foreign policy questions and how detailed they will get. peter, i mean, on hillary clinton, who also spoke this morning on this iran deal, you know, if something does go awry with the deal say over the course of the next 14 months, because this morning she took a bit of credit, if -- if something were to go awry she would take some heat as well, no? >> i think that's true and it's also true that republicans are focusing very heavily on foreign policy as they attack hillary clinton. i think in large part because the economy is improving so
their attack on the obama/clinton administration as it were on economics is not as strong so they are turning towards foreign policy. but i think in -- if you look at voters' priorities, it's not very likely i think that that's going to resonate enough. the reason trump is resonating is as crazy as he is, i agree with jennifer, he's actually making more of an effort to appeal to people who have not benefited economically over the last 15 years and that's where the republican party really has some trouble. >> we hear him over and over, i'm a successful businessment. i can help with these deals and i'm sure we'll see some of that next wednesday night. jennifer and peter, thank you so much and a reminder the republican presidential candidates will be facing off in back-to-back debates and tune in next wednesday night september 16 at 6:00 and 8:00 eastern here hon cnn and we want to hear from you. we want to hear from you. tweet us your debate questions using the #cnndebate. next, all cries on apple

this is cnn. i'm brooke baldwin. school officials in texas trying to figure out why two high school football players just up and tackled this referee blindsiding him and tossing him down to the ground. administrators held an emergency hearing to discuss whether any rules were violated. you see in the video we have it spotlighted. the unsuspecting official, wait for it, you see player one, player two, taking him down, swooping in, slamming him. the ref has been identified as robert watts, a 14-year veteran. the players say he hurled racial slurs during the game. those allegations under investigation, and then add this to the mix. this man here. this is assistant coach max reed. he's now on administrative leave. he may have instigated this whole thing, allegedly ordering the hit on the ref telling the players that watts must, quote, pay for cheating us. officials at today's hearing not happy. >> i read where this -- in this
ball game there were multiple ejections. there were punches thrown throughout parts of the game. there was trash talking and gestures to bring attention to one self and not the team, unsportsmanlike penalties, arguing with officials, including coaches, late hits, players complaining over and over throughout the game and what many would call an assault on an official and clenched fists as you cross the lines to shake hands. that is -- seems to me like a time bok waiting to happen and it did happen. >> the case is now being treated as an assault on a school official. joining me now ronald oswalt, the c.o.o. of texasfootball.com and known ron watts, very familiar with him, several
entities have railed against what these players are accused of doing. sir, welcome, thanks so much for joining me. >> thanks for having me. >> let me just fin because obviously we haven't heard publicly from, you know, your friend, this referee, robert watts. i know you have spoken with him. what has he told you? has he said, yes, i -- i uttered racial slurs on the field, yes, that's the reason why i was taken down or not at all. >> he has not responded back to me. we had messaged through twitter but the biggest thing was i've known him for nine years and in a professional capacity there's no way i would ever see this individual hurting someone, verbally assaulting anyone or anything. he's only ever been pleasant to people in our community and these officials do not get paid enough going through everything this man is having to go through in his life right now. it's just really sad, a sad day for texas high school football. >> is it possible, ronald, and, again, you have known him and i hear you have a lot of respect for him, and in a professional
setting but under the bright lights, texas football, is it possible his temper got the best of him? >> no. i would never see that out of this individual. i've seen him at large event and other things and robert would never do anything to hurt anybody at all. >> what can you tell me about this assistant coach who apparently told these players allegedly to teach this ref a lesson. do you know anything about him? >> the reports that we're getting are probably about the same that you're getting right now, and the reports are just stating as of hear say at this time, and just like the racial slurs. they are just really hear say at this time. >> i grew up in georgia. i have several dear friends who are african-americans who played high school football. back in my high school with one of them recently and telling me that absolutely part of his friday night experience was hearing racial slurs hurled at him. he never, of course works take out a ref but it would give him
a little more impetus to tackle someone. is this a reality of texas football? you tell me. >> i'm sorry, it broke up. >> gosh, how -- is any of this part of just texas football? this is the south, you know, the heat of the game, a huge deal, gestures, racial slurs. does that happen in texas? >> sure. i mean, you're going to have trash-talking in the game to a point but it's a very much minimum. i've worked with texas high school football and high school football back from mississippi since 1989, and we always see that level of professionalism. 99.99% of the time nothing ever happens. >> all right. ronald oswalt, we'll be following. it just quickly, do you know if at all robert watts will be speaking publicly addressing this? >> at this time i've not heard he is, but we do have some breaking news with we've just
reported there will be a report on texashsfootball.com. we were at the press conference and we alsopayer scoped it so all of that will be available from one of our reporters today. >> was there a headline? >> really the biggest headlines that came out of the meeting was that the uil executive director who is the governing body for football in texas says i don't know what provoked these actions but, you know, we're meeting with each school individually. they said the culture at john jay high school was poor with fans and players. john jay will play this week their game will go on as planned. north side isd, they said they will do everything they can this week, but they are increasing administrative security this weekend at john jay high school. >> ronald oswalt, thank you for your time. >> thanks for having me. here on cnn, new polls for the united states to step in as
hundreds of desperate refugees are streaming into europe. we'll speak to a former member of congress asking the obama administration to step it up. plus, jeb bush takes on donald trump and hillary clinton in a major speech today. why he says his two big rivals are actually the same. welcome to fort green sheets. welcome to castle bravestorm. it's full of cool stuff, like... my trusty bow. and free of stuff i don't like. we only eat chex cereal. no artificial flavors, and it's gluten-free. mom, brian threw a ball in the house! at ally bank no branches equals great rates. it's a fact. kind of like shopping hungry equals overshopping.

shrimp bites, and i already want more. they even brought back wood-grilled teriyaki shrimp! yeah, you heard me: teriyaki. and really: what's not to love about... ...buttery garlic shrimp scampi? here, the sweet, spicy, crispy possibilities are as endless as the shrimp. and yeah, they're endless, but they won't last forever. as syrian refugees stream into europe cnn is capturing powerful images of families in the midst of these excruciating journeys. in fact, this exclusive video here taken by our cnn cameras, this is just off the coast of turkey, more than 30 people here crammed into this tiny pontoon boat being smuggled across the mediterranean with hopes of reaching greece. today secretary of state john kerry announced the united states will take in more refugees from the crisis in syria, though secretary kerry
did not say exactly how many more refugees the u.s. will welcome. thus far the u.s. has brought in just 1,500 people trying to escape the war in syria, and you know what? my next guest says that is not enough. he is tom andrews, president and ceo of united to end genocide and former member of congress. congressman andrews, thanks so much for joining me. >> thanks for having me. >> let's begin with this petition you started, moveon.org urging president obama to act. it's up to 1,400 signatures and counting. what do you think the u.s. role should be here? >> first of all,y in debate along these lines, so often it's the shrill voices that appeal for the fear and -- and fortress america. what we're talking about here are desperate people, over 4 million have been forced out of syria. they are literally running for their lives. they need help. they need compassion and support, and the united states needs to do two things. number one, we need to be open to more refugees. 1,500 is -- it's almost
laughable. it is such a small number compared to the number of the great need that we have here but secondly the united states has to play a leadership role, and by committing ourselves to taking more of our fair share of this burden, we can then generate support from other countries, particularly those in the region, to step up and do their fair share. we all have to work on this together, but these are not people just looking to get a better job next door. they are desperate people who are literally running for their lives and they need compassion and support. >> i am hearing you. i know this is such your realm of expertise. asking folks to find me numbers. we're apparently told the united states takes in already between 55,000 and 70,000 political refugees each and every year. i was just talking to this phenomenal woman in berlin last hour who took in this family of four who left aleppo. just to you personally, congressman, would you open your home to some of these people? >> you know, the amazing thing, the answer is yes and the amazing thing is not only are we
getting people to sign our petition to have their voices heard above the shrill voices of fortress america, we'll help and open up our spare bedroom, our church or din going would like to help as well. it's amazing. we're a nation of refugees. founded by people who are fleeing persecution. yes, there's a lot of fear that is appealed to by some in the political world here in washington, but you've got to believe there's an enormous amount of compassion out there, too and common sense, realizing that the united states has to realize both of those qualities and rise above the harsh rhetoric in order to come to a solution here that i think we'll all feel good about as americans. we need to act. >> there are lots of people who want to act. when you look at your petition, there are people saying i have a spare bedroom and i want to help. quickly here what would you say to these people who genuinely want to -- to offer a helping hand. >> well, first of all, we have to change u.s. policy. there is a limit to how many people are being allowed in. as long as that policy is in
place, it doesn't matter how generous you are and how hopeful you want to be. there's a limit to how many people can be brought in. first of all, let's change u.s. policy. let's open our doors to more refugees. let's lead with compassion and also common sense here and let's provide the means and the opportunity for people who want to do the right thing to do the right thing. >> there are cynics, i mean, it's impossible to turn away from these images of our crews chasing these people through these farm fields, watching woman who gave birth 11 days ago nursing her child as she is marching on. i have to play this sound bite from an editor with "the daily beast" and 40-year veteran covering wars. this is his perspective. >> people become outraged. they cry and they do nothing. i've seen a lot of suffering, but i've never seen a crisis on quite the scale that we're looking at now in europe. there are more and more people who are more and more desperate.
it's not that they don't want to work. it's not that they don't want to do thing. hell, people who become migrants, immigrants, refugees, those people are very often the smartest, most capable people in their society. it's all about one central issue. it's about hope. it's about people who want to have hope and they lose hope in the land where they were born and they think that they can have some kind of hope for themselves and their families if they go to europe or for that matter if they come to the united states. >> but when you listen to the whole thing one of the worries is that ultimately the american people will do nothing. 30 seconds, congressman. what would you say to chris dick dickey? >> have hope. there are many, many americans here who have great compassion and are looking at this the with common sense works want the united states government to stand up to lead, to -- to lead the world in having a collective global response to this crisis. this is the largest refugee crisis we've seen since world
war ii and in world war ii, one of our darkest moments when we turned away refugees at our border who ended up dying in -- in ovens in the holocaust, we cannot afford as a country both morally or any other way to turn aside. we need to open our heart and our minds and use common sense and provide the leadership necessary to save untold numbers of lives. >> tom andrews, appreciate your voice. president and ceo of united to end genocide. thank you, sir. >> thank you, brooke. republican hopeful ben carson took a shot at donald trump's immigration plan and now donald trump firing back what. he told cnn about the candidate nipping at his heels in the early primacy state and also apple rolls out its new apple ipad and pencil and the more on announcement that has everyone talking. or lead a country.

police in phoenix are investigating apparently another random shooting along a major highway there. there have been at least ten such incidents in the last ten days in this area. authorities say the windows of the car driving just hours ago near the freeway were shot out. a person was in the car. that person was not hurt, but police will not say if today's shooting is related to all the others. republican presidential hopeful jeb bush just rolled out his plan to overhaul the nation's tax system speaking to supporters in north carolina. jeb bush says his new plan would make the tax code simple, fairer, clearer. he particularly though took aim at the republican and democratic front-runners for president while laying out his plan to lower taxes and create more
jobs. here he was just a bit ago. >> the way we bring jobs back to america is to take power out of washington and give it back to the american people by allowing them to have more of their hard-earned money. through hard work -- [ applause ] -- through hard work and ingenuity and know-how as we have always done, we will compete with the world and, yeah, we will win. senator clinton and mr. trump may not believe we can do it, but i sure as heck do, and i know you do as well. >> cnn political commentator sally cohen and republican commentator mercedes schlapp are both with me. hello, ladies. >> nice to see you. >> calling out both front-runners there, mercedes in, one of his big economic speeches thus far, both trump and hillary clinton. what was he doing there? >> a double punch, there you go. going after clinton and trump putting them in the same
sentence. it's part of -- part of his strategy to basically pin or push trump into this corner as him not being a conservative. trump talked about his tax plan or gave a little bit of information about his tax plan and it didn't sound too much like a supply side tax-cutting conservative plan and jeb bush took aim that, so i think it was an effective approach on bush's side, especially when he's trying to get in there and start -- and start getting play in the media as well. >> okay. let's move to one of the targets, hillary clinton. >> can we just talk about that tax -- >> all right. wanted to do hillary clinton with me. the whole i'm sorry, bit. days ago. days ago with nbc she refused to apologize and now she's apologizing. if you get to hillary clinton e-mail she's apologized, notice abc interview she is eapologizing and read the "new york times" they said this is about to be a big strategy change and initially you thought hang on a second and you see
what's happened and, i mean, i have to have think that this is choreographed. >> look, a couple things. first of all, there is no question that in the grand scheme of political topics, you know, talking about jeb bush's plan to restructure the economic tax code in the same way that his brother did that crashed the economy and talking about donald trump's plan to deport 11 million people, those are substantive discussions of the kinds of things we should be talking about and the kinds of policies and actions we should be attacking. hillary clinton using a private e-mail server in the grand scheme of thing is small potatoes and one thing if anybody else had done it it wouldn't be a big deal. >> really? >> let me say, that being said, this was a crummy apology and came too late and i'm going to be honest, gone through couples counseling and really good at apologizing, and the one thing i learned apologies don't have but shaking going on and i don't mean the video with ellen.
>> mercedes, jump in. >> sure, it's not small potatoes when the fbi is involved. sure, you have inspector generals, intelligence review coming out basically saying that at least two of her e-mails were highly classified. this is an issue, and obviously for hillary clinton they had to focus group it to figure out what -- how people were feeling about the fact that she was not apologizing and so it's impacting obviously her trustworthiness, her favorability has gone down. it's a very indiana is seer apology, a little bit too late, and, again, i don't know at what point. we've still got a long way to go before -- and i think this does impact hillary and i think it's going to hit her even in the general election. >> she is now apologizing over and over. you have to imagine that her camp is hoping some sort of sincerity will eke through in the polls. ben carson, the number two republican now on the ballot, and -- and he was talking yesterday, and, you know, the headline a dade after he said
i'll consider this trump/carson ticket and anyone who thinks about rounding up massive numbers of immigrants, donald trump, is a problem, and now we have some sound and i'll turn it around for you. donald trump speaking at this rally here in d.c. what he just told sarah murray in terms of ben carson. >> he's wrong and doesn't understand it and he's wrong. >> why do you think he doesn't understand it? >> he doesn't understand it and he's wrong. we need a strong immigration plan. we have to come back and bring back this country. we need borders and strength and if he doesn't like it, he doesn't understand it. >> so no mar trump/carson ticket, mercedes? what has happening here. >> i thought it was a trump/cruz ticket. maybe trump doesn't need a vice president at this point. so i think for carson -- ben carson is obviously trying to get into this debate about immigration. again, it is incredibly tricky because when you start talking about mass deportationled majority of republicans don't
agree with it. a group of republicans very angry and very concerned about illegal immigration in this country, but, again, i think it would be the wrong way to go for ben carson, particularly because he is trying to attract a social conservatives particularly in states like iowa and south carolina. >> sally kohn, democrat here nodding, you get the last world. >> the whole dynamic here is sort of mind-blowing. you have basically all the republican contenders in a race to move as far away from the mainstream voting public as they possibly can. i mean, you have, you know, immigration reform, exactly right. majority of voters and majority of republicans support comprehensive immigration reform and at a time when we're talking about a moral obligation to help the refugees in europe and majority of americans worried about economic inequality and republicans trying to outconservative each other and out-extreme each other, reproductive justice and
distancing themselves from the american voters. >> majority of americans are not in favor of the iran deal. >> you hit it all, mercedes schlapp and sally kohn, thank you very much. yes, there are a lot of voices that we'll hearing from on stage, but first let me tell you this. tomorrow donald trump will be live on cnn, 7:00 in the morning and later in the day, jeb bush will be talking to jake tapper on "the lead" at 4:00. do not miss the interviews and, again, next week, a week from tonight, the big cnn debate in california. well, the technogeeks jazzed up. did i just say jazzed up? i sure did. apple just revealed its new product lineup. there's a whole lot more than a new phone. ♪ irresistible moments deserve irresistibles treats. new from meow mix with real salmon chicken or tuna. the only treat cats ask for by name.
