tv   Anderson Cooper 360  CNN  September 9, 2015 6:00pm-7:01pm PDT

6:00 pm
good evening. 9:00 p.m. in new york. we begin with breaking news. word like these. look at that face. would anyone vote for that? donald trump saying that and saying more about his republican rival carly fiorina. the language coming to light in a rolling stone piece that went live moments ago. joining us, host of reliable sources, brian stelter. what is trump saying?
6:01 pm
>> a lot. most shocking comments and talked about comments in the long profile are about carly fiorina. watching a newscast with the rolling stone writer. that's when he talks about carly in some detail. of course, carly the only female candidate in the republican race. this is getting a lot of attention. part of what the quote says. when the anchor tosses to carly fiorina for her reaction to trump's momentum. obviously, look at her face, you can almost hear him saying that if you watched his press conferences, rallies. we know the way trump talks. i did check in with a spokeswoman for the trump campaign. they're not commenting any further. they're not refuting the quotes. you sometimes wonder when you see a magazine profile, rolling
6:02 pm
stone, was some person, taken out of context. misquoted. no indication right now. >> interesting that trump would allow accesaccess, rolling stond stanley mcchrystal, quoted a lot of things said in casual context which ended up, getting him dismissed. >> led to his downfall. in this case, you know, one of trump's strategies is to be as open as possible with the press. say yes to as many interviews. this case, rolling stone, arranged last month. photo shoot. cover shoot in his office. here in new york. so something that was arranged by his campaign. part of a series of press availabilities trump has been giving. seems like he is always on the record. always available. sometimes as perhaps in this case the quotes come out to haunt him. so far, every time a perceived gaffe, every time, we think he has stepped in it, seem to make him stronger. >> we'll see what reaction is to this.
6:03 pm
breaking news as well from the candidate running second to donald trump in many polls. now for the first time taking a swipe at him. dr. ben carson, questioning donald trump's faith. it happened just before a rally in southern california's conservative orange county. listen. >> by humility and the fear of the lord, riches, honor and life. and that's a very big part of who' who i am. humility and fear of the lord. i don't get that impression with him. maybe i'm wring. but i don't get that impression. >> probably the biggest thing is -- that, you know, i realize where my success has come from. and i don't, in any way, deny my faith in god. and i think that probably is a big differentiator. >> covering dr. carson and joins
6:04 pm
us now. the comment. interesting up until now. trump and cars on refrained from saying anything negative about each other. >> right. so unusual this dynami between them. it was very sort of gentlemanly, pleasant. become and forth. carson did a fascinating thing going after authenticity of donald trump's faith. questioning whooe ining whethere or not. a lot of people here in the crowd looking to hear that kind of thing from him. he was obviously here in, in orange county. in an area that brought out evangelicals, saddleback church. it is just a really interesting, really interesting to see whether or not this does in fact bring donald trump down in the polls. basically ben carson was throwing down the gauntlet saying this guys not real. i am. vote for me. >> no doubt in a soft-spoken polite way as dr. carson often, often speaks. we haven't heard any response from, from the trump campaign at
6:05 pm
this point. not sure if donald trump is going to go after dr. carson. explain the circumstances he was saying this. he wasn't saying this in a stump speech in front of the crud he w -- of the crowd he was going to be talking to. a direct question from the reporter before the rally on stage? >> correct. this was right before a big ral y y in -- rally in anaheim. he was asked how he would differentiate himself from donald trump. he went directly into the faith answer. as the we know the debates are coming up next week. he may have been testing the language to see how it would play with voters. but a very direct hit. and one that really could create splintering in the race. many of the voters i talked to here today said that they would not kconsider trump any circumstances, worried about him as aless c loose cannon in the
6:06 pm
office. we are seeing coalition, fissures that could lead to creating a lane for candidates. a rise for carson in the polls. >> maev eche, thank you. joining us, anna navaro, ken kuchinelli, former attorney general of virginia, and matt ki kibby, and a pro super pac. nothing that he has said so far has seemed to hurt him. is this any different? >> well i think this is his strategy. every so many days he comes up with a new outrageous comment. today the comment du jour, car y fiorina's face. just repeat the cycle over and over again. frankly, got to tell you, anderson. as i was listening to the
6:07 pm
report. it's kind of sad the way things are going in the state of the gop campaign right now. we are having attacks on face and faith. so viewers don't get confused. trump attacking fiorina's face. carson is attacking trump's faith. and you know, come on, guys. where are the policy issues? where is the meat? where are the proposals? where is the agenda. >> i am going to read the tweet. wow, i am ahead of the field with evangelicals. so proud of this and every other group. and ben carson just took a swipe at me. imagine more to come. ken, do you think trump should a apologize for the statement about carly fiorina. does it matter? >> it does matter.
6:08 pm
to anna's point. it will play differently with different supporters. but there is a difference between this kind of a statement and his, his what some people view as brazen comments about immigration, you know that is an important subject matter. frankly donald trump drove a lot of attention to it earlier in this campaign. this is not a subject of debate by presidential candidates. carly fiorina is a legitimate candidate in the race. the kind of comment that really has, serves no constructive purpose. and is, it is going to cause him problems as it probably should. his schtick so far has been to make everybody upset at some times over policy, some times over sort of his blustery approach off to things. and those are beth finoth fine. within the bun dreoundaries. he is much better in the lane
6:09 pm
attacking the establishment failing us. and really driving a lot of his support than he is attacking other candidates on especially nonsubstantive things like this. >> matt, do you agree? you know the ground game. republican party needs to within over women voters. not the first time trump has said something he has been called on as being insulting to women. how big a problem is this? you think? >> we'll see how things go. this is very early in this race. the fact of the matter is we are now in part experiencing this new more decentralized political system. more candidates are going to be competitive. you will see ups and downs. i think donald trump's welcome wears out. he has sort of the pop star status that helps booefore you t to know who he is. i think with groups look the tea party over time they will discover he is basinge ically anti-tea party. all about himself. all about very strong executive.
6:10 pm
all about executive power. the fact that he its smarter than everyone else. if you just give him the power he will take care of things. >> anderson. something that i think is very interesting. he is picking on carly fiorina. and fiorina is going to be on the stage next week. she has proven to be a tough, tough, cookie who can hit pretty hard. she is going to look donald trump into his face and say to him, really, donald? really? you think you can criticize my looks? >> the fact, ben carson he is questioning authenticity of donald trump's faith. something trump has, you know, his critics say will spoken awkward low about perhaps before. trump was saying i was having fun with the audience speaking, voter forum. talking about eating the cracker drinking my wine. he says he loves the bible. he goes to church. do you thing what carson is saying has validity, or will have an impact among
6:11 pm
evangelicals. rick perry went after donald trump on issues of faith. whether it backfired. certainly hasn't helped rick perry. >> let's face it. there is a significant portion of the republican electorate that takes a" of faith extremely seriously. they want to know that they have a president who giments ets up morning and prays to god for wisdom and the strength to do this job. and ben carson as you noted in sort of his mild-mannered way has questioned that. whatever any body thinks about why dr. carson did that or a good idea. it will jump-start the discussion. look at us. we're talking about it. now those voters are going to revisit that question. donald trump shot back. look at the scoreboard. i am winning evangelical voters. it's september. voters are getting to know the
6:12 pm
candidates. dr. carson has taken a risk by drawing that contrast. but he is also drawing the attention to it for voters for whom that is important. and as we know in iowa, and sut carolin -- south carolina that's important. >> huge number of evangelicals will caucus on those cold winter nights. matt, do you think it is going off to have an impact? i remember reading eric eriksson in the red state after trump made the comments about holy communion, and he has written off evangelical support. and yet, the polls show him among evangelicals he is doing very well. >> i think some times this debate between whether or not donald trump is a conservative or whether there not liberal is he flip flopping, changing his views. they miss the fundamental nature of who he is. when he says certain things it
6:13 pm
is a form of political arbitrage. if some one says nice about him. he likes them. that has nothing to do with his ideology. i wouldn't question his faith. but i don't think he is like most republicans in the sense there is a core set of values that define why they're running, what they're trying to accomplish, and i think that wears thin over time. when it happens. go back to what ken was saying. it happens when people start taking the time to pay attention. rational people have betten thing betten -- better things to do than pay attention to politics. >> if i can comment. the trump phenomena is among evangelicals and conservatives is very interesting. he doesn't, he hasn't embraced conservative principles or positions. >> he has spoken awkwardly on issues of faith at best. yet he is the front-runner.
6:14 pm
he is the front-runner because he is bashing the teeth in of the republican establishment. and across every, i don't care how you divide up the republican electorate. however you slice it up. all sections are upset with the failed leadership from john boehner in the house, the whole house leadership and mitch mcconnell and leadership in the senate which senator cruz commented not too long ago on the floor of the senate isn't much different. doesn't look much different than if harry reid were the leader. that's a response you are seeing. that its putting the wind in the sails of donald trump. >> right. hey, good to have you on. ken, matt, anna. good to see you. thank you. one keynote on the "rolling stone" piece. the reporter who wrote it has a lot more to say. he will say it tomorrow night here on 360. hope you john us for that. just ahead tonight. another i'm sorry from him ear clinton. the long winding road on what is being called on her e-mail

6:18 pm
in a speech, former secretary of state clinton backed her former boss's deal with iran. if she becomes president she won't hesitate to take military action if iran tries to obtain a nuclear weapon. one piece of her day. she continued what some are calling her apology tour on the ellen show. here is what she said when ellen asked her about the e-mail
6:19 pm
controversy she can't seem to shake? >> i used a personal e-mail account. is was allowed by the state department. i should have used two different accounts. i made a mistake. i am sorry for all the confusion that has ensueensued, i take responsibility for that. i am trying to be as transparent as i can, but anyone ever has been >> for weeks mrs. clinton refused to apologize for using her server as secretary of state. with poll numbers falling she changed course in a major way yesterday. >> reporter: hillary clinton offered a full apology for the controversy surrounding her e-mail. >> that was a mistake. i am sorry about that. i take responsibility. and i am trying to be as transparent as i possibly can. >> reporter: she put it on facebook as well. a mea culpa she resisted. since march since she first addressed her e-mails. >> the server will remain private. >> reporter: in july as more voters questioned her trust
6:20 pm
worthiness. >> i can only tell you, brianna, this has been a theme that has been used against me and my husband for many, many years. >> reporter: and in august, even after turning her server wiped of e-mails over to the fbi. >> what like with a cloth or something, no. >> nobody talked to me about it. other than you guys. >> reporter: clinton edged closer to an apology last week but didn't quite get there. >> i am sorry that this has been confusing to people and has raised a lot of questions. >> reporter: then tuesday, one day after telling the associated press she had no reason to apologize, she finally, finally did. repeatedly. admitting mistakes. >> i do think i could have and should have done a better job answering questions earlier. i really didn't perhaps appreciate the need to do that. >> reporter: as clinton tries to turn a corner, secretary of state john kerry just appointed
6:21 pm
career diplomat janice jacobs as transparency czar to oversee requests for clinton's e mails. jacobs donated money to clinton's campaign. >> we were not aware of the contribution. but i would till you, that, that it bears no relevance on her selection. >> reporter: part of clinton's strategy to move past the controversy. >> you remember president reagan's line about the soviets. trust but verify. my approach will be, distrust and verify. >> even as she address aid serious topic today she had lighter moments. laughing off a coughing fit as she delivered a political jab. i'm suffering from massive allergy assault. yes, republican histamines are everywhere. >> brianna keeler, cnn,
6:22 pm
washington. >> our panel tonight, joining me, david gergen and gloria borger. >> david, do you take this apology from former secretary clinton at face value the same day on a strategic makeover for her campaign was reported? >> anderson. i think she deserves credit for taking personal responsibility for the e-mails and stepping up to it finally. it took a long type. for apologies to be effective, they need to be timely and need to come from the heart. this apology wasn't, didn't meet either one of the criteria. it took a long, long time. a begrudging quality. the second point you mentioned. i just can't believe that her team did what they did to her and put out in the newspapers, you know they're coming out, going to unveil the new hillary. that doesn't work. here is the new authenticity. >> nothing worse than that. fights against. david axlerod, just do it.
6:23 pm
don't talk about being awe then theic. -- authentic. >> political malpractice in my opinion to do that to her. >> political malpractice. same day she apologized for using the server to abc news. and on ellen said she was server not for using the server, but all the confusion that ensued. i don't know if that is splitting hairs. it is kind of a nonapology-apology. >> yeah, that's totally right. it is. and i think there was people took offense at the, the notion, i'm sorry for the confusion. i'm sorry -- you know. but look, bottom line. i think this is the first step. and i, you know do think she deserves credit for doing it. she has a long we to go to win back the trust. can she do it? yes. but, will they please stop trying to think in the back room how to reinvent her. stop fiddling with her public persona. let her be herself.
6:24 pm
this is a year when people crave authenticity. >> gloria, the irony of it is the people who interact with her closely and you know, talked to, donors of hers or people been at events say, you know what in a room, she is terrific. she is, very capable. really kind of wows a lot of audiences in small settings. so you would think there must be some authenticity there. it doesn't seem to translate necessarily on television. >> i think what happens to people who have been in politics a long time. hillary clinton has been in politics. happened with mitt romney and also with al gore when he was candidate for president. they know what can go wrong if you make a mistake. so what happens is, they start self-censoring. they take all of the spontaneity out of themselves. and then they're, their campaigns start having campaigns let hillary be hillary or let mitt be mitt or let al be al. because the candidate is too
6:25 pm
worried about making a mistake. and i think, you know, we have seen this with hillary clinton. way back in 2008 when sheep she she ran for the presidency. remember she had a hard time talking about her vote supporting the war in iraq. and saying it was a mistake. in the book she wrote before the campaign. she admitted it was a mistake. everybody said, yeah, sure she admitted it was a mistake. she had a hard time doing it at that time as well. because when you are a candidate. you don't want to say ooh, i did something wrong. because she doesn't want to admit wrongdoing. sort all of over the place. jokes about it. blames it on being confused. >> anderson, one other el emeem. i had a chance to see this up close in the '90s. she has been wounded and gone through a lot of pain in the earlier years with her public exposure. when you do that you are afraid to touch the stove again.
6:26 pm
you know, you just, you just don't want to go there. the thought of it is difficult for her. so i sympathize with that part of it. but, even so, if she is going to connect with people emotionally which she is not doing yet in this campaign. she has the capability of doing that shec that. she has to take off the cloaks, masks, be herself, be hillary. let us see who she is. things will get much better if she is willing to do that. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> quick programming note. tomorrow night here on cnn two big interviews. donald trump a guest on "new day" at 7:00 a.m. eastern. at 4:00 p.m., jeb bush and jake tapper of "the lead." >> did a key safety item fail in the fire that nearly consumed the airliner in las vegas. new details. and perspective from aviation professionals including someone who flies a plane just like this one. when we continue.
6:27 pm

woman: when a student understands a concept for the first time. man: when the students get it. man: their eyes get big, the lightbulb pops on. woman: "i got it, i think i got it!" they light up. it's like magic. woman: this is not just a job. woman: the rewards i get are... priceless. man: we help kids grow, and that's part of the rush of teaching. narrator: the california teachers association. educators who know quality public schools
6:30 pm
make a better california for all of us. educators who know quality public schools i was going to the library to do my homework. it was a little bit of a walk to get to the bus stop. i had to wait in line to use the computer. took a lot of juggling to keep it all together. what's possible when you have high-speed internet at home? the library never closes. it makes it so much better to do homework when you're at home. internet essentials from comcast. helping to bridge the digital divide. early evidence tonight that could shed light on what caused this inferno. that and praise for the flight crew that managed to safety stop the burning british airways
6:31 pm
boeing 777 yesterday. kudos for the cabin crew getting all passengers out. questions as well about what led to all of this as flight 2276 began its takeoff. according to the faa a fire in the left hand engine prompted the crew to abort the takeoff and take steps to snuff out the flames. tonight, however, a source close to the investigation tells us the plane's fire suppression system didn't work. they want to know did it simply not function? or did the fuel line rupture make the fire too big to contain. joining me cnn safety analyst les avat, and analyst and faa accident investigator, excuse me, david sousey. wes, the system that helps put out the flames. how does it work exactly? >> it is a halon system, activated in the cockpit, anderson. when we get a fire warning, we get an electronic fire bell. we get, one of our instrumentation up front in the cockpit, tells us that we have a
6:32 pm
fire. it lights up the fire handle. lights up fuel control switch. then we activate that switch on our own. we actually turn this fire handle. there are two separate bottles on the triple 7. we turn it to, either bottle it does not matter. it will electronically activate a squib which will discharge halon too the engine. this is all part of the check. very textbook procedure type stuff that we practice on every recurrent journey. >> david, when you look how big the fire is, in your mind is it possible this could have been a fuel loon ruine rupture or some else? >> looking at the damage on the airplane now, it is interesting. the leading wing, on the engine, severely damaged. wasn't just an engine failure. where all right fuel lines go into the engine area. this would explain possibly the
6:33 pm
fire system les was describing deployed wasn't able to exting wish the fire. it appears that the fire was externa external. >> there is a point in takeoff. the plane cannot stop. it has to go up in the air. >> correct. we focus on three speed. let me focus on the main one, v-1, the decision speed. at that speed if we make the decision to stop the airplane, stop the jet, stop the threat. at that point if we have made the decision prior to reaching the speed there should be enough runway at the weight we're at, at the temperature we are at, altitude we are at to stop the airplane. in this particular case in las vegas, very hot that evening. 100 degrees. looked at 7:00 in the evening. approximately 3,000, 4,000 feet if i recall on the elevation, lot of performance there. the airplane should have came to a stop. and as we saw it did very well.
6:34 pm
>> david. if this happened when the plane was actually in the air, what would have happened then? how bad could this have been? >> we would be looking at a very different sa thecenario. everyone survived. 20 injuries. all released within a day. if this happened in the air. a catastrophic fame year of possibly the wing. if you lack at the damage it could have gotten into the leading edge of the wing into the wing spar. if that fire continued it would certainly penpenetrated. melted the windows on that side. if that continued fueled by the fanning of the flames and oxygen, it could have been ape very serious catastrophic fame year of the whole airplane. >> scary stuff. you see the pass jen errs waeng across the runway with carry-on language. they're supposed to leave that on the plane. aren't they. walking with it must slow down the evacuation process, no? >> of course it does. you know this is humannay --
6:35 pm
nature. flight attendants this is their job not to serve us coffee and, you know, scotch. this is their job to get us off the airplane. they turn into totally different people when this has to happen. but that being said, you know, folks are just going to grab their stuff. but i do want to add anderson to something that dave said with the poe ttential for different scenario when airborne. what concerns me, this looks to me like it might have been an uncontained engine fire. meaning stuff came out of it. shrapnel is what i understand from my magazine that i write for, "flying magazine" indicated shrapnel came out of it. this is a design that should, this design should not occur. all engines are designed to contain the material within that engine. so, that concerns me a little bit. >> les, good to have you on. david, as well. coming up how the syrian refugee crisis is making a mark on a
6:36 pm
turkish port town. and a harrowing account of the violence the refugees are freeing to escape. i can almost taste it now. tastes like victory. and pepperoni... what do a nasca comedian... and a professional golfer have in common? we talked to our doctors about treatment with xarelto®. xarelto® is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. xarelto® has also been proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. i tried warfarin before, but the blood testing routine and dietary restrictions had me off my game. not this time. not with xarelto®. i'll have another arnold palmer.
6:37 pm
make mine a kevin nealon. really, brian? hey, safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® has been prescribed more than 11 million times in the u.s. and that number's growing. like your guys' scores. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring, and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®.
