4:01 pm
kate bolduan in for erin burnett. out front, it is on. donald trump on the attack against ted cruz. tonight raising questions about whether cruz can even run for president. in an interview with "the washington post," trump raised the issue of cruz being born in canada and called it a, quote, big problem. he went on to say, it would be a very precarious one for republicans because he would be running and the courts may take a long time to make a decision. you don't want to be running and have that kind of thing hanging over your head. cruz quickly responded in a very interesting way. his tweet featuring a clip from "happy days" where fonzi jumped the shark. trump is across the country in another key state about to rally supporters in claremont, new hampshire. this comes as several plun candidates launched attack ads. ads that curiously failed to take aim at the leader of the
4:02 pm
pack mr. trump. sarah is out front with the trump campaign. what is in line with this new attack? >> reporter: it's interesting to see donald trump going of a ted cruz like this, questioning whether he can be president because he was born in canada. when donald trump was asked about this a few months ago he said a number of lawyers looked into this and thinks ted cruz is fine. what you are seeing is a new political reality. ted cruz challenging donald trump, closing in on him in the polls, leading in some polls in iowa, the first nominating state. the interesting thing about this, this is donald trump throwing the first punch. this isn't a response or counterattack. this is donald trump going after cruz. that could be a sign he is worried about his footing in some of these early states. >> sarah murray what the trump
4:03 pm
campaign. thank you so s much. as for the other candidates, they are flooding the campaign trail and the air waves today, attacking just about everyone and everything except the republican front-runner. phil mattingly is "out front" in new hampshire tonight. >> the political air war kicking into high gear. >> you want someone to read one hell of a bedtime story? ted cruz is your guys. >> reporter: across televisions, the republican primary has gotten tough on the issues. >> politics would be very different if lawyers or bankers were crossing the rio grande. >> reporter: on democrats. >> he's the one hillary doesn't want to run against. >> unlike some, his day is now booming. >> the only one escaping the onslaught? donald trump. >> he's calling for a temporary shutdown on muslims entering the united states. >> reporter: as trump's new ad hit the air waves in iowa, other candidates are hoping these will make, not break, their
4:04 pm
campaigns. the ad spending millions from the top tier candidates underscore s the urgency of th moment. 36 days until the new hampshire primary. while the other candidates seem to be duking it out among each other -- >> isn't this more fun than a regular boring rally? >> reporter: trump is focused on anoth another, samuel l. golfer. he cold "golf" magazine he is a better golfer than the manage eyre because he doesn't tweet. trump says he doesn't know jackson, and thinks he does too many tv commercials. boring. not a fan. >> shifting his sights slightly to ted cruz. what this is all really underscoring now is we are now in the race. less than a month until the first votes are cast.
4:05 pm
in new hampshire, as many as five candidates reliant on a good finish in this state. it's starting and it's not going to stop any time soon. >> it's only going to get wilder and crazier and samuel jackson is part of it. great to see you. jeffrey lower served as political director for ronald reagan. great to see you both. there's too much to discussion, not enough time. first, the birther argument has reentered the presidential race. what do you make of it? >> i think we are all stupid or for it. i wasn't a fan when it was used against barack obama because it wasn't true. i'm not a fan with ted cruz because it's just not true. it's not productive. i'm glad ted cruz responded the way he has. laugh it off.
4:06 pm
use the fonz, use "happy days." if donald trump is not a serious person, maybe we should treat him like that, as well. >> and trump himself back in september said this was not an issue for ted cruz. what has changed? >> first of all, primaries are always very intense. there is nothing abnormal about this at all. they are going to go at each other. that's the way it works. >> but is it okay? you are a trump supporter. are you comfortable having him take on this birther issue with ted cruz? >> my point is what he is saying is not that he's not eligible. he is saying someone will raise the question of eligibility in the courts. i like senator cruz. i think he's perfectly eligible to be president. the cnn story from last year comes to the conclusion if senator cruz makes progress
4:07 pm
there would be a legal challenge by somebody out there. that is not hard to imagine. what donald trump is saying now is what he said months ago and cnn itself thought that was a logical conclusion. >> it was ugly racism eight years ago and we shouldn't stand for it in the republican party today. >> doug, doug, doug, doug, i don't understand why it's ugly racism when it's barack obama and when they did it in 1880 -- >> i wasn't alive in 1880. i was opposed to racism then, too. it's not what we need to be talking about. grow jobs, build the economy and do things to get america great again. >> doug, doug, doug -- >> respond, jeff. >> there is history. 100-year-old history. there is nothing unique to barack obama or ted cruz with this argument. george romney, mitt's father was said by many not to be eligible because he was born in mexico to mormon missionaries. this is a very old argument.
4:08 pm
>> i'm not willing to excuse racism by saying it happened for a long time. >> hang on. we shouldn't excuse racism by saying it's gone on forever. we know there is a racial problem in this country. unfortunately, donald trump is exploiting it yet again. we've never seen donald trump appeal to our better natures as we've never seen him appeal to anything aspirational or anything to create jobs, grow the economy or have the conversation american voters need to. ultimately here is why it's important. hillary clinton and the democrats are watching this and laughing. they want donald trump to be the nominee because they know that is a sure path for hillary to go to the white house. it's a sure path for chuck schumer to become senate majority leader. pat toomay has been a fantastic senator for pennsylvania. these things matter. >> let me ask you this. do you really think that donald
4:09 pm
trump, the man who led the charge on the birther question with barack obama, do you really think donald trump doesn't now what he is doing when he raises the issue with ted cruz with "the washington post" reporter? >> again, to be clear, all he is saying is somebody out there could make a legal challenge. your cnn reporter a year ago came to the exact same conclusion. there is nothing new or startling about that. having toast for breakfast is under legal challenge somewhere, i'm sure. there is nothing -- i might add, doug, nothing is racist here. all these previous challenges and questions raised about george romney, chester allen arthur, they were white guys. this is an old, old issue. >> he attacked ted cruz' religion. i'll stand up for ted cruz all day long on this. it's terrible to call out any other candidate's religion what a shock. there is one candidate who consistently does this.
4:10 pm
again, politically here is why it matters. >> let me ask you -- >> you are playing the identity politics card and it's unacceptable. >> donald trump plays that consistently. thank you. >> i don't think so. >> give me your take on ted cruz' response. you think it's a great response, but does he do that at his own risk? not taking something that might not be true but could hurt him with just 20 plus days left to go to iowa? >> one, i don't think it will hurt him. when you're the candidate being attacked, a good way to do it is laugh it off. we watched the video and laugh at it. i would love to see republican candidates go more systemically and more specific on donald trump and treat him as a serious candidate. the emperor doesn't have any clothes, he doesn't have any answers and is not able to talk about serious issues defeating
4:11 pm
isis, growing jobs, fixing our schools and all the problems america faces. >> i did find what sara murray pointed out interesting. this might be the first time donald trump punched, not counterpunched. that's got to mean something. great to see you. "out front" next, we have been waiting ted cruz about to speak to supporters in iowa. will he respond to this new attack from donald trump? president obama cries on stage at the white house. why the issue of gun violence is emotional and personal to him. armed activist holed up in a government building refusing to leave till the federal authorities give into their demands. who will blink first? does a freshly printed fill you with optimism? then you might be gearcentric. right now, it's like paying just $9.99 after rewards for this case of paper! office depot officemax. gear up for great.
4:12 pm
to prove to you that aleve is the better choice this is claira. for her she's agreed to give it up. that's today? we'll be with her all day to see how it goes. after the deliveries, i was ok. now the ciabatta is done and the pain is starting again. more pills? seriously? seriously. all these stops to take more pills can be a pain. can i get my aleve back? for my pain, i want my aleve. get all day minor arthritis pain relief with an easy open cap. they are. do i look smarter? yeah, a little. you're making money now, are you investing? well, i've been doing some research. let me introduce you to our broker. how much does he charge? i don't know. okay. uh, do you get your fees back if you're not happy? (dad laughs) wow, you're laughing. that's not the way the world works. well, the world's changing. are you asking enough questions about the way your wealth is managed?
4:13 pm
wealth management, at charles schwab.
4:14 pm
4:15 pm
tonight ted cruz barn storping through iowa as donald trump launches his latest attack against the senator. ted cruz is about to hold a rally there. he did speak to reporters, the video -- there were technical glitches, but he did say when asked about this attack from donald trump, he said i'm going to let my response stick with my tweet, fonzi jumping the shark. ted cruz not going after donald trump tonight. talking about iowa, folks. it is a state cruz hopes leads him to the republican nomination. is ted cruz christian enough for gop voters?
4:16 pm
>> it looks like a campaign event. >> we have to awaken and energize the body of christ. >> reporter: but sounds like a sunday sermon. >> i was seeing joshua 24:15 on the wall. choose whom you will serve. as for me and my house, we will serve the lord. >> reporter: ted cruz has a clear message. >> let this campaign reflect your love, your glory. >> reporter: campaigning through the most conservative parts of the state, christian bookstores, steak houses and sports pubs, ted cruz is amplifying his faith, making big outward displays of his devotion. >> one minute each day to lift up in prayer this country, the awakening, the spirit of revival sweeping this country that it continue and particularly conservatives continue to unite. >> reporter: it is an intensified message ramped up before votes are cast.
4:17 pm
evangelicals, one of the most coveted and largest voting blocks for republicans in iowa. >> the reason i am voting for ted cruz over donald trump is he is a person of faith. >> i want a godly man to be our president. senator cruz appears to be that man. >> reporter: cruz' flaunting comes as authenticity of his faith has become ground zero. his rivals looking for any opening to stop his momentum are trying to plant seeds of doubt, alleging that cruz' faith is not genuine. >> what iowans have proven to do over the past is get serious about who is the right person on the issue. who has the experience? who is someone we can trust? >> reporter: trump is openly questioning how true a christian cruz really is. >> cuba generally speaking is a catholic country. you don't equate evangelicals with cuba. i don't. >> reporter: a charge which cruz quipped back on the first time. >> i would be more than happy to
4:18 pm
invite donald to come to church with me any time he'd like. >> reporter: ted cruz has not answered his critics any more directly than that. he's really trying to brush aside all these questions, these attacks on his faith. he has started to suggest these attacks mean that many of his opponents are starting to panic. >> sunlen, thank you so much. gentlemen, great to see you. thank you so much. tony, we've got a lot to talk about. i want to get your take as someone who has spoken supportively of ted cruz of what you make of these questions donald trump has just raised about ted cruz' citizenship and ted cruz' response. what do you make of it?
4:19 pm
>> i think what ted is doing is turning the other political cheek. he is not taking the bait and not getting into an argument with donald trump. the two of them have kind of had an unwritten truce through this whole process. they benefited from it. both of them together dominate the polling. 60% voters support them. the reason is because they refused to be restrained by the chains of political correctness. now i think ted cruz in iowa is beginning to make one of those nascar moves. he's been there neck and neck with donald trump. he does connect with voters through his evangelical roots. i think that's what he is doing in iowa. i think it's to the benefit of donald trump for both of them to not attack one another. they share a very common base. >> as someone who is a supporter, endorsed donald trump, do you like that he is raising these questions about
4:20 pm
ted cruz? >> well, i believe he's answering the question, i don't know if he is raising the birther issue has been raised by others, even when you go back to barack obama, president obama's election. the birther question was raised by a hardcore group of hillary clinton supporters. mr. trump hijacked that after it was already in the media. i believe he is doing the same thing here. he is saying there will be questions. probably lawsuits with this. it will be a distraction to the campaign. we live in a litigious society. he's probably correct someone will raise this question. as far as him going after this as the issue voters want to talk about now, i believe it will subside. >> we'll see about that. let's turn to this question, this whisper campaign some folks are calling it about ted cruz' faith. and faith in general between these two candidates. you heard ted cruz responding to donald trump who suggested
4:21 pm
possibly he's not a true evangelical. be it wrong or right, how concerned are you that a whisper campaign like this could stick though for ted cruz? >> i'm not. i think voters -- first off, you have to realize why are they raising this issue? number one is because voters are very concerned about religious liberty. they know those who are religious are going to be more protective of religious liberty. an ap poll says 82% of americans are concerned about religious liberty. their comfort level in the government protecting that fundamental freedom is declining, vanishing rapidly. i don't think that's going to stick. part of it is who ted cruz is. he connects very well with evangelicals. donald trump is connecting with them. the polling is showing that because he is speaking clearly. voters aren't looking for, to vote for a pastor.
4:22 pm
it was evangelical voters that were very instrumental back in 1980 in booting a baptist sunday school teacher out of the white house replacing them with a hollywood actor. they were looking for a bold, courageous leader. one was that leader ronald reagan. jimmy carter was not. >> pastor davis, you heard a couple of iowa voters in that piece said he is picking ted cruz because he is a man of faith over donald trump. i also heard evangelical leaders speaking out against trump saying for an evangelical to support him, they would have to repudiate everything they believe. is this a conversation you think donald trump wants to be having so close to the iowa caucuses where evangelicals are so important? >> i'll say your reputation is what others say about you. your character is what you do in private. there was a meeting amongst a
4:23 pm
moderate republican where his conversation was recorded and him saying that same-sex marriage is off the table, where before he called it with the supreme court's decision tantamount to tyranny. there is this whisper campaign. we've seen it before as pastors and most would agree with me they come to the churches every four years and two years and tell us they are going to do this or that. we don't see them until they need to be re-elected again. it's classic pandering. he can quote scripture. sounds like a revital on the campaign trail. i don't disdain that, but i believe many evangelicals are more concerned about being able to practice their faith in safety and they are looking at someone that is a hard nose, someone that can engage security
4:24 pm
as a priority of the nation so we can practice our faith like we have in years past. >> always great to see you. thank you so much. >> good to see you. "out front" next, the oregon protesters occupying a government building, they say they're in it for the long haul. and that they are doing god's will. an emotional president obama remembering the children killed in the sandy hook massacre. >> every time i think about those kids it gets me mad. and by the way, it happens on the streets of chicago every day. mortified mortuary mortality mortician mortgage of all the "mort" words, and there are some doozies, that's the worst. so, we added rocket. sfx: rocket engine
4:25 pm
sfx: (countdown) 3, 2, 1 (ding) (ding) (ding) rocket but i've managed.e crohn's disease is tough, except that managing my symptoms was all i was doing. and when i finally told my doctor, he said humira is for adults like me who have tried other medications but still experience the symptoms of moderate to severe crohn's disease. and that in clinical studies, the majority of patients on humira saw significant symptom relief. and many achieved remission. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores.
4:26 pm
don't start humira if you have an infection. ask your gastroenterologist about humira. with humira, remission is possible.
4:27 pm
4:28 pm
president of the united states today crying on a stage filled with victims of gun violence and their families in a passionate speech he rolled out new executive actions on gun control. president obama speaking to opponents of stricter gun laws said, second amendment rights are important, but other rights are at stake as well. >> unalienable right to life and liberty, those were stripped from college kids in blacksburg in santa barbara and high schoolers at columbine. and from first graders in newto newtown. first graders.
4:29 pm
and from every family who never imagined that their loved one would be taken from our lives by a bullet from a gun. every time i think about those kids, it gets me mad. >> the president also lashed out at the gun lobby and at congress for blocking tougher measures before announcing the new measures that he says will help reduce gun violence. the new measures include expanding background checks for gun sales online and gun shows, adding 400 new agents and staff at the fbi and atf and making it easier for states to share mental health records. tom foreman is "out front." >> reporter: a military base in
4:30 pm
texas, as congress members rally in arizona. a temple in wisconsin. a movie theater in colorado. all saw mass shootings during barack obama's first term. >> such violence, such evil is senseless. >> reporter: but in late 2012 came the massacre at sandy hook elementary school. >> beautiful little kids between the ages of 5 and 10 years old. >> reporter: that spurred the president to action like nothing before. >> we have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this regardless of the politics. >> reporter: the president launched a task force to limit access to weapons and ammunition, bulb support for stricter gun control which had declined for a half dozen years rose rapidly to 58%, but the gun lobby pushed back. congress hesitated and virtually
4:31 pm
all of it faded, leaving the president clearly frustrated as the shootings went on. a university in california. a theater in louisiana. a college in oregon. >> somehow this has become routi routine. the reporting is routine. my response here at this podium ends up being routine. >> reporter: and of course, an office gathering in san bernardino, california. >> one guy down. one guy in the back. >> another tragic reminder that here in america, it's way too easy for dangerous people to get their hands on a gun. >> reporter: after killings at a church prayer meeting in south carolina, the president even saying of his sadness -- ♪ amazing grace >> reporter: it was a remarkable moment politically, but in
4:32 pm
practical terms everything else he tried to limit gun violence, it changed nothing. ♪ that saved a wretch like me >> reporter: with just over a year left in office, what the president is doing this week could represent his last significant stand on this issue, but without strong polls and politics to back his passion, the matter of gun violence could well remain the great unfinished business of his presidency. kate? >> tom foreman, thanks so much. you're absolutely right. "out front" with us to discuss ben ferguson, conservative radio talk show host and van jones, a former special advisor to president obama. it's great to see you. ben, in response to the president's remarks today and officially rolling out these measures, we were hearing mixed messages from gun rights supporters. on one side, this is a vast overreach. paul ryan called it a form of intimidation that undermines liberty. others are saying these measures
4:33 pm
aren't that big of a deal. so which is it? >> i think there are two things that are concerning. one is the fact now doctors will be turning over information which many people are going to be concerned with hipa issues when it comes to mental health. the question is if a doctor says you're mentally unstable, how do you get your name off that list if they report you to the background check system? there are many americans that do need help. they ask for help from doctors every day with mental health. those bipolar and others. when they get it under control, do you lose your right to protect yourself, your family and your home? the white house have not been able to answer that question. the second big issue is the fact now the social security administration is going to be turning over people's names to the fbi who they say cannot handle or manage their personal affairs. if you're older, there are many older people that may not do their finances correctly so they have family members or others
4:34 pm
help them. does that mean they should not be able to have a gun in their home to protect themselves at the age of 75, 80 or 85, if someone kicks in that back door? because someone at the social security administration turned their name in? if it is wrong, how do you get your name off this record where you would be denied a weapon when you go to buy one? because someone at social security administration said you don't do your taxes the right way so you're incompetent. >> good try. good effort. the conservatives got so far over their skis saying this is going to be a horrible thing when the actual rules and regulations came out, actually republicans should be saying let's take yes for an answer. what conservatives said was we don't want this president making new laws. they want this president focused on mental health. we want this president to come
4:35 pm
to us for new laws. that is exactly what the president has done. he has not made any new law. he clarified, doubling down on existing law. where he wants new law made, he is going to congress. now what you're seeing is people who got so far over their skis saying this is going to be tyranny having to find little things, everything ben talked about can be easily remied and will be remedied. it's not the apocalypse. >> van just said they did not make it a new law. why is all this starting next month and the white house saying that for the first time ever doctors are going to be able to not worry about hipa violations and hand over mental health issues? if i am dealing with a mental health issue, i am going to be very concerned that my name may be put on a list if i say something wrong to a doctor. if i'm asking and seeking help. that is a new law. for the social security
4:36 pm
administration to be able to turn a name over of someone elderly, that is a new law. you can say nice try, but if i'm an elderly person, this is something very concerning to me. >> let me add this into the conversation quick, van. the president ran through a list of the mass shootings today. he's talked about mass shootings quite often. i'm hearing from a lot of republicans pointing out these actions he's rolled out would not have prevented these mass shootings from happening. the president himself acknowledged that these actions are not going to prevent mass shootings from happening today in unveiling it. with that in mind, if he's couching it as he's announcing it, is it more about optic than action on some level? >> i don't think so. i couldn't have been prouder of this president today. i think people across this country want something to be done. obviously, the president can't do everything but somebody should do something. i could not have been prouder of him today to step forward as he
4:37 pm
did, to speak as rationally and emotionally as he did about an issue that affects so many people. you can't have it both ways. you can't say you want the president to do something that is going to have this big effect but you won't vote for anything, you won't support anything he does, you won't let legislation come to the floor. republicans have continued to say they agree with him on mentality health. in december they shot down a mental health option. here is an opportunity now. if what republicans say is true, their main concern is mentality health, the president is saying i'm going to ask for 500 million. if republicans want to do something, they don't like what he did, they want to do something, there is a door open. see if they go through it. >> at least in the short term, i have not seen any movement on positions from the left or the right on this issue as this was unveiled. we'll leave it there tonight. i appreciate it. great to see you. an important programming note. thursday night president obama
4:38 pm
will join anderson cooper in a live audience at a town hall to talk about this issue, "guns in america" 8:00 eastern here on cnn. "out front" next, authorities refusing to confront the armed protester whose took over a government building. what can they do to end the takeover? >>. >> the san bernardino shooters, the fbi doesn't know all of their movements on the day of the massacre. they are asking for help. where were they and what were they doing? we do it for the ones who rise before it shines. the ones who labor for what they love. ♪ because at banquet we believe that every dollar should work as hard as the family that earned it. that's why we're making our meals better. like using 100% natural chicken breast in our chicken strips and adding real cream to our mashed potatoes. so now, there's more to love with banquet. now serving... a better banquet.

4:41 pm
4:42 pm
the armed activists who seized a federal building in oregon are vowing they will not back down. tonight, saying they will only leave if the government relinquishes control of federal land if provoked, they are not afraid to use force. what are officials saying tonight? >> reporter: authorities say the armed protesters at the national wide life refuge need to leave but protesters say they aren't going anywhere. can you give us some sense of exactly how long you might be here? >> this is a lot of work. definitely it's going to take some months. >> reporter: months that some local residents worry could turn into much longer. >> i feel like they lied to us.
4:43 pm
i feel like the whole protest march was a ruse so that they could do what they're doing right now. >> reporter: some people aren't ranchers that say they came into our community and took over. why are they coming from outside into our community? >> i understand that concern. >> reporter: the group that calls themselves the citizens for constitutional freedom are still here. it's day four. we don't see any local, state or federal police out here. it is in the middle of nowhere. we are about 35 miles from the closest town. the lack of police presence is a stark contrast to the deadly siege and confrontation at ruby ridge in idaho that left three dead including a u.s. marshal in 1992. less than a year later, there was the deadly raid in waco, texas, that left at least 75 people dead, including women and children, and four federal agents. the word waco comes up quite often. when they start hearing words
4:44 pm
like talkover. are you worried this is going to end that way? >> nope. america isn't going to tolerate another waco. >> reporter: you're the only ones here. america is at home. >> yeah, well, there's a neat quote from world war ii that said we can't do that because there will be a rifle behind every blade of grass. >> reporter: the armed group says the federal government is illegally grabbing land and they want to give it back to local ranchers and farmers. >> i think it's time for people to be talking about these issues. i think they can do it in a nonviolent way it will be worthwhile. >> reporter: the leader is a nevada rancher that comes from a long line of mormons. in a statement, the mormon church says they are deeply troubled by the reports that those who seized the facility suggest they are doing so based on scriptural principles. this armed occupation can in no way be justified on a scriptural basis. the group is made up of men and
4:45 pm
women mostly from nevada and arizona. while they do not call themselves anti-government, they are opposed to the bureau of land management, a federal agency. the federal government, they say, does have a place like securing the borders. as it turns out, they took a loan through the federal government loan program through the small business administration, took a loan of about $500,000. kate? >> sara sidner out there for us. thank you very much. u.s. marshal has been involved in multiple operations like this including the showdown in ruby ridge, idaho in 1992. great to see you. >> thank you. >> take me inside discussions amongst law enforcement as this drags on day by day. why does it seem they are waiting this out? >> that has been probably the plan from the very beginning. we learned a lot over the years since ruby ridge, since waco, since the 2001 seizure of the
4:46 pm
indianapolis baptist temple. also in 2008 the brown case from new hampshire. the main difference between those four cases and this particular instance is there was fugitive warrants or some type of seizure warrant to be executed at ruby ridge you had fugitive warrant. waco you had the execution of a search warrant and an arrest warrant. at the indianapolis baptist temple, seizure of property. in the brown case in new hampshire, you had not only a fugitive warrant but seizure of property. you don't have that instance here. what we learned is if you just back off, let them sit there in self-imposed exile, and once the press goes away, they are going to get bored, tired and cold. they are going to eventually go home. that is exactly what's happened in these other cases. >> real quick, other than waiting them out, what are the nonlethal ways to force them out? do they cut the power to the building where they are holed up? >> that is one plan.
4:47 pm
do surveillance. they can do drone surveillance to identify all the individuals that are there. they can get with the u.s. attorney's office to figure out what charges can be brought. right now, i only seems like possibly destruction of government property or federal trespassing would be the main thing to come to mind right now. there are things that can make them uncomfortable. really, once the press goes away, this thing is going to fade into another distant dream. >> take the mega phone away and they don't have more to say. thank you so much. >> thanks.

♪ (cell phone rings) where are you? well the squirrels are back in the attic. mom? your dad won't call an exterminator... can i call you back, mom? he says it's personal this time... if you're a mom, you call at the worst time. it's what you do. if you want to save fifteen percent or more on car insurance, you switch to geico. it's what you do. where are you? it's very loud there. are you taking a zumba class? i drive to the hoop. i drive a racecar. i have a driver. his name is carl. but that's not what we all 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® is also proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. for people with afib currently well
4:49 pm
managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. you know, taking warfarin, i had to deal with that blood testing routine. i couldn't have a healthy salad whenever i wanted. i found another way. yeah, treatment with xarelto®. 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® is the number one prescribed blood thinner in its class. well that calls for a round of kevin nealons. make mine an arnold palmer. same here. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring
4:50 pm
and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®. and ca"super food?" is that recommend sya real thing?cedar? it's a great school, but is it the right one for her? is this really any better than the one you got last year? if we consolidate suppliers, what's the savings there? so should we go with the 467 horsepower? ...or is a 423 enough? good question. you ask a lot of good questions... i think we should move you into our new fund. sure... ok. but are you asking enough about how your wealth is managed? wealth management at charles schwab. to prove to you that aleve is the better choice this is claira. for her she's agreed to give it up. that's today? we'll be with her all day to see how it goes. after the deliveries, i was ok. now the ciabatta is done and the pain is starting again. more pills? seriously? seriously. all these stops to take more pills can be a pain. can i get my aleve back?
4:51 pm
for my pain, i want my aleve. get all day minor arthritis pain relief with an easy open cap. . tonight, 18 minutes. that's the gap in the timeline following the san bernardino attack that remains a mystery still to the fbi. tonight, the fbi is asking the public for help. investigators are looking for any information that might reveal critical clues as to why
4:52 pm
syed farook and tashfeen malik were doing at the time between the horrific massacre and the shootout with police that killed them both. evan perez is "outfront" with more information. why is this 18-minute gap so critical? >> it's because they don't know what they were doing during those 18 minutes. did they talk to someone? did they meet anybody? did they dispose the information during those 18 minutes? they've done a good job of piecing to the four hours after the shooting at the inland regional center and between that and the time that they had a shootout with police, they've been able to use surveillance cameras and cell phone tracking to be able to figure out, for instance, they stopped at a lake and that's one reason why the fbi did a search of that lake. it's very important for them to know every single piece of this. they want to make sure nobody else was involved. >> that in mind, evan, how close are officials, are you hearing, to completing the investigation?
4:53 pm
>> they are still a ways away. it's remarkable how much of a piece of investigation they need to do here. they've talked to 500 witnesses already but there's a couple of pieces of a puzzle that they still are missing. for instance, they don't have this missing hard drive that they still would like to recover. they haven't been able to recover or retrieve data from two smashed cell phones. they have another phone that they used and that's one way to figure out their movements. big mystery here remains, kate, why that day? why that location? why did they attack a holiday gathering like they did? and they had these weapons, they had the black powder. they could have done this at any time other time. a lot more that the fbi wants to know about this. >> evan perez, thanks so much. we really appreciate it. >> sure. "outfront" next, jeanne moos with famous flirts caught on tape. >> i want to kiss you.

4:58 pm
turns out not to be a good answer to a sports reporter's question about cricket. chris gale got a little too lost in the eyes of channel 10 reporter mel mclaughlin. >> that's the reason why i'm here, just to see your eyes for the first time. it's nice. hopefully win this game and have a drink nice time. >> not funny and not original. how about just like a fine broadcaster do her job, tweeted a fellow reporter. the club called it inappropriate. >> gayle's team fined him $10,000 australian, which works out to about 7,000 u.s. he called it a disrespectful joke, no pun intended. >> i just want to move on. i accepted his apology.
