tv   CNN Tonight With Don Lemon  CNN  February 22, 2016 8:00pm-9:01pm PST

8:00 pm
like a race horse. but we have a big lead and we don't want to blow it. and frankly, we've got to go all the way. we're going to make america great again, folks. >> that's donald trump speaking live at a rally in las vegas. let's listen in a little more. >> we're going to make it better than ever before. >> the last six months, seven months, i've been going around. the people are amazing. the people are amazing and i've been saying that. make america great again. it will be better than ever before. because our people are people in this country are incredible. now, it started on june 16th. and i came down. i talked about illegal immigration. in fact we have sheriff joe. where is sheriff joe? i love sheriff joe. there he is right there.
8:01 pm
when sheriff joe endorses trump, that means there's no one on immigration. >> speaking live in las vegas. speaking of donald trump, his victory in south carolina has given him a big lead in the race for delegates. a state treasurer of arizona. a trump surrogate. listen, you're there. you hear him talking about sheriff joe which you would know about. how is the atmosphere there? >> the atmosphere here is great. if this is not proof, as you look around this room, that this is a movement. this is not a normal candidacy. this is a movement in america. there are over 12,000 people here that are beyond enthused to see donald trump who has the leadership, the courage, the will, the strength to move america forward. to make america great again.
8:02 pm
and to see this, to see the energy in this crowd and what's going on here. it really shows that something powerful is happening in america. >> okay. let's look at the delegates. and it is still early. i want to put up this delegate hunt. he needs 1237 to win. he has 68. after winning in new hampshire and south carolina, do you think he's going to run the table here? >> you know, it certainly looks like we could. we just picked up an extra delegate in new hampshire. took all 50, all 50 in south carolina. that was not a winner take all state and we still took all 50 delegates. so there is the potential on run the table. we'll see. i think there will be enormous pressure on ted cruz and marco rubio and john kasich if they don't win their own states. when you have people like that, ted cruz from houston. if he doesn't win texas, i don't
8:03 pm
know how he can win the presidency. if marco rubio doesn't win florida, i don't know how co-win the presidency. so there will be enormous pressure on the other candidates as this moves further down the road. >> you said there's a potential to run the table. not that you were. here's what the skemics point out. he's never won much more than a third of the votes. as the field gets smaller. is that something the campaign is concerned about? >> you say he hand won more than a third but every one else has won a lot less than that. as anyone drops out, you would think proportionally they'll all get more and mr. trump will get stronger too. you look at a candidate like ted cruz. if he dropped out, a lot of those people would go the mr. trump. when you go to ben carson, i can see wherever every voter will go to trump. so he's only won a third of the vote. you can win an election without winning the entire vote.
8:04 pm
i won my race for state treasure you are with 43% of the vote. you never know what can happen in these races. there are reports that rudolph giuliani has been in touch with donald trump and is advising him in some fashion. it looks more and more like he will be the nominee. what kind of advice and input does he need and what is rudolph giuliani giving him? >> the best way i can say it is mr. trump is a businessman. he brings people together. he is a great guile. he will always listen to anybody who wants to call. >> he's been in touch with rudolph giuliani. >> well, yeah. i think it's been well reported, yeah, that's correct he's been
8:05 pm
in touch with rudolph giuliani. the aspects of that is between the two of them. i think it is great to hear that people like that are coming on board. everybody is coming around and getting on board as they realize what donald trump is bringing to america is something very powerful. everybody wants to be a part of it. >> thank you. i appreciate you coming on. >> i want to bring in republican writer, matt lewis, the author of too dumb to fail. >> you heard donald trump there. you heard jeff dewitt in las vegas. will donald trump run the table or will he hit a ceiling as some insist? >> i think he'll run the table. i think he'll run the table to the point of possibly winning every state from here on out. cruz is ahead by 5 points in texas. cruz might win that state but donald trump certainly has a chance. he is ahead in florida. rubio pose as viable challenge
8:06 pm
there but i think he'll win there. you look at next tuesday. he is winning in eight of the 11 states. this is a give pulling out victories left and right. the exit poll showed 92% were angry with the federal government. i think that's what is really undergirding his campaign. anger. >> i still want to ask, do you think there's a possibility of donald trump as we listen to him live there in las vegas, that he could run the table? i think he can run the table in the republican primary. he did something amazing which nobody has given him credit for. not only did he beat the establish nypd south carolina. he also beat everything the establishment wants the republican party to look like. he beat rhone rubio, trey scott, nikki haley and he beat them down. >> and won over evangelicals. >> so yes, i think he can run
8:07 pm
the table. on the flip side, the republican primary in south carolina was 96% white. me and kaley had this conversation all the time. you cannot win the presidency of the united states with white conservatives. you simply can't. >> run the table? >> no. he won't run the table and i'll tell you why. this is a guy, he has won two. let's keep this in perspective. and he lost one. when christie drops out of the race, trump's numbers were higher and then when they came in, they were lower. he didn't pick up christie votes or fiorina votes. so i don't buy this notion that somehow trump has, he is the inheritor of all these votes. i think he has a ceiling. >> bob beckel is a genius and i think he is exactly right as usual. >> donald trump is the front-runner.
8:08 pm
he is doing an amazing job. stunned everybody. surprised me from the get-go. i think he has a ceiling and of course he is going to get -- if john kasich got out tomorrow. some votes would go to donald trump. the vast majority would not. if you look at them, they're going to marco rubio or cruz. they're not going to mostly to go trump. the question is, will there be five candidates running indefinitely? or could you ever get trump one-on-one? until that happens or unless they employ my devious strategy of jiu jitsu, i don't think they can stop him. >> we are listening in. donald trump is speaking light at a campaign rally. we're talking about can he run the table? i'll get your thoughts. >> i would argue that hawaii you
8:09 pm
a a huge victory. donald trump came in, to his point, i would argue that polling shows he does the best among minorities of any republican candidate. frank lunlts. he could do as well as reagan did who won more votes than any candidate. >> john kasich is still in the race. he is taking aim because of his political career. that was in the 1970s. he said they left their kitchens to get out and support him. >> i'm sorry. anybody who is offended, of course. of course i'm more than happy to say i'm sorry if i offended somebody out there. but wasn't intended to be offensive. if you their whole thing you'll understand the context of it. >> does he get a pass on this?
8:10 pm
>> yeah. i think he does. john kasich has run one of the most admirable campaigns of anybody on the republican side. i don't believe john kasich to be sexist. i think that he made a flippant remark, she apologize because it was offensive. i'm sure that people will make a lot out of this. but just from watching the campaign that john kasich is running, i can't hold it against him. i think he needs to apologize and move on. >> i don't understand why he needs on apologize for anything if it is factually true. he said when he ran for congress in the 1970s, moms, stay at home moms came out and volunteered for him. if that's factually true, i think this is why donald trump is i know w. because of this political correctness. >> that's also not what he said. he said women came out of kitchen to put up yard signs. >> but is it true? >> the theory that they were not working women. that somehow women were second class citizens. it's not true.
8:11 pm
>> i don't think he suggested that. there probably were stay at home moms who came out of kitchen and volunteered for him. if that's factually true. in the 1970s. why would he apologize? >> you're reaching back here now 40 years on the john kasich quote. and donald trump makes more outrageous quotes every week and we don't go back and analyze those. to matt's point, that's yes believes donald trump is i know. because he is not politically correct. >> he is flat wrong. >> listen, to matt's point. my mom was a working mom. she always worked from the 1960s on up. if you look at the 1970s, if it is factually correct, not that women's places are in the kitchen but if they did come out. as mothers who were in the home, then what's wrong with what he said? >> it's absurd. it's offensive. >> well, it may be offensive but you have to put it in the context of the times.
8:12 pm
most women temperature were stay at home moms and a lot of women did come out to help in kasich's race. i was involved in politics. that's not the point. we're spending minutes on kasich who will not be the nominee and we're letting donald trump pass on everything from, i have to look at the transcript. >> this is why people like donald trump are i know w. because somebody like john kasich, the media forces him to apologize for something that is not offensive. this is political correctness run amok. people are fed up with it. >> this is also the reason the republican party cannot win the presidency of the united states. because fundamentally they don't know how to talk to people of fundamentally -- >> not true. >> they don't know what's offensive and not offensive. because this -- >> it's your party that sees the world through the purviews of gentler and race. women were not offended. there are some women who boring
8:13 pm
in the kitchen. there are some men who are stay at home dads who also boring in the kitchen. if it is factually accurate, then it's factually accurate. >> i can't believe we're having this discussion. >> why not? >> donald trump has offended every segment of the population. please continue to use this rhetoric. please continue to use this dialogue in november and you will have the 45th president of the united states have a d by their name. >> by thinking that, are you -- there's nothing wrong with being a stay at home mom. that's probably the hardest job anybody can have. >> i'm not saying that. what we're saying is the way he used the phrase. there's nothing wrong a stay at home mom and nobody is saying that. to infer women were coming out of the kitchen and relegating them to second class citizenship. that's what em. >> that's not what he. did we live in such a high offense culture i'm awol on this
8:14 pm
panel and i wasn't offended but he is offended on my behalf. >> hang on. before we go any further. >> stand by. i want everyone to listen and do exactly what he said and then we can talk about it more. here it is. >> i went to washington, following my mother's advice. i've been in this legislature before that at the age of 26. and how did i get elected? i didn't have anybody for me. we just got an army of people, and many women who left their kitchens to go out and go door to door and put yard signs up for me all the way back when things were different. now you call homes and everybody is out working. but at that time, early days, it was an army of the women that really helped me to get elected to the state senate. >> who has a problem with that? do you have a problem with that? >> no. i have a problem with the fact that he apologized. i think that shows that he is a wimp. >> i don't know if he really
8:15 pm
apologized. >> i think he is bound to political correctness. he didn't say anything wrong. this is 40 years ago and stay at home moms helped him get elected to congress. >> he did say he was sorry. does that change anything listening to it in context? >> no. if you listen to the woman who asked the question next. she said i'll be voting for you but i won't be coming out of kitchen to vote for you. i'm not sensitive. if the person on this panel supporting donald trump doesn't have a problem with it, please continue. >> last word. >> the fact that we're going on with kasich about this and we let donald trump get away with calling the only female candidate on the republican presidential slate ugly. calling megyn kelly, the horrible issue about bleeding and get away with that. >> we called him out on all of that. >> you called him out. >> hillary clinton responded to it. this happened on the campaign trail.
8:16 pm
this had nothing to do with donald trump. john kasich can stand on his own words, can he not? >> did we spend this much time talking about when he said fiorina was ugly? >> yes, we did. you criticized the media for saying, you give too much attention to trump and then we talk about another candidate. now we're giving attention to another candidate. >> he says some of the wompt rhetoric out of any presidential candidate i've ever heard. >> there you go. a long time to go, brother. >> thanks. stay with cnn for all the replying political events. moderated by chris cuomo at 8:00 eastern. thursday night, the last debate before super tuesday. moderated by wolf blitzer. beginning at 8:30 eastern.
8:17 pm
up next, apple versus the fbi. should the company bow to pressure to unlock a terrorist phone? plus, were some police are calling for a boycott of beyonce's tour. >> i don't know what the hell they're talking about. it is a cruz ad, a cruz scam stoffel evangelicals didn't vote for him. do you know why? they don't like liars. lecithin lecithin. l-e-s (buzzer sound) your word is milk. m-i-l-k milk wins. ingredients you can spell.
8:18 pm
isn't it time to let the real you shine through? e to severe plaque psoriasis... introducing otezla, apremilast. otezla is not an injection, or a cream. it's a pill that treats plaque psoriasis differently. some people who took otezla saw 75% clearer skin after 4 months. and otezla's prescribing information has no requirement for routine lab monitoring. don't take otezla if you are allergic to any of its ingredients. otezla may increase the risk of depression. tell your doctor if you have a history of depression or suicidal thoughts, or if these feelings develop. some people taking otezla reported weight loss. your doctor should monitor your weight and may stop treatment. side effects may include diarrhea, nausea, upper respiratory tract infection, and headache.
8:19 pm
tell your doctor about all the medicines you take, and if you're pregnant or planning to be. ask your dermatologist about otezla today.
8:20 pm
8:21 pm
we expect the fbi to fight terror but not to be in a fight with one of america's biggest and best loved companies. that's apple. it is all over a court order to unlock the iphone of san bernardino syed rizwan farook. a court order that apple is refusing to comply with and saying they need to protect their customers. who is right? here to discuss this is steven larson, a former district judge also recommending san bernardino victims and their families. and the senior counsel with the electronic privacy central. good to have you both here tonight. you are working with the victims' families and you're following a brief in support of the government. plane is to us what the fbi is asking apple to do and why. >> at this point i think the fbi is simply asking apple to follow the court order. the time has come for apple to comply with the court order. to provide access to the cell
8:22 pm
phone. >> so allen, today, apple ceo tim cook sent out a memo to the entire country. it says as individuals and as a company, we have no tolerance or sympathy for terrorists. when they commit unspeakable acts lying the tragic attacks in san bernardino, we work the help the authorities pursue justice for the victims. that's what we. did apple is a uniquely american company. it does not feel right to be on the opposite side of the government centering on the freedoms and liberties that government is men to protect. you say will apple is right? >> this case isn't just about this case. apple is looking forward to future cases where other members of this government, other governments potentially could be asking them to do the exact same thing. and apple realizes the press denial that says any government agency can order them to basically rewrite their software
8:23 pm
and make their devices less secure for everyone. >> how do you respond? >> it's not true. there's no agency that is ordering apple to do anything. it is a federal judge ordering apple. we have the fourth amendment. you can't hide criminal evidence. you can't put in it your house, in your bank, you can't put in it your phone. if you do do that, if there is a probable cause for the government to obtain that information, they can go to a court and they can ask the court to issue an order. that's what happened here. this isn't a government agency. this isn't some rogue entity within the government trying to track down and obtain information off these iphones. this is a federal judge sitting in riverside who has considered the application of the government, considered the government's arguments, and has ordered apple to produce the information. >> so i want to know, what is the difference then when, if there is probable cause for looking through your e-mail,
8:24 pm
your personal documents, your tax records, going into your home to do a search. why is this different? >> sure. well, the problem here is that the fourth amendment is, establishes protections but it doesn't grand the government authority. just because the fourth amendment says the government can do certain searches with probable cause does not mean that evidence persists or the government can access it. unlike the search of an e-mail account or a home the government can enter. the fourth amendment doesn't guarantee access to that information. >> here's what the director of the fbi wrote. he says we want the chance with a search warrant to try to guess the terrorist's pass code without the phone self-december instructing and without it taking a decade. we don't want to break anyone's encryption or set a master key loose on the land. so apple is essentially saying, we would love to help fight terror as much as the next guy,
8:25 pm
once we create this technology, that it will set things loose. loose on the land. people can get into iphones and people's privacy will be invaded. are they right about that? >> there's no one more committed to the fourth amendment and privacy rights than myself. i was a federal jfl i'm a civil rights attorney now. at the same time we have some compelling interests. the compelling interests involves combatting this terrorist act and finding out the information. not only for the government. i want to be arguing for the victims as well. they're entitled to this information. we are talking about a dead murderous terrorist who committed a horrendous act, who was using a cell phone that was owned by the county of san bernardino. this was not even his own cell phone. and to suggest that he has privacy rights at this point, that trump the interests of law enforcement, given the
8:26 pm
procedures that have been followed here. given the fact that we've gone to a federal judge. the fbi has gone to a federal judge and they've obtained an order. this is not people running around the country doing all these terrible things that mr. cook is concerned. about i think there's some scare tactics being used here. it is not fair to the government or law enforcement. most importantly, it is not fair to the victims. >> how many other iphones are locked if criminal cases. how often does this come up? >> what we know is that there are 150 iphones locked, sitting in the new york prosecutor's office right now. that he has said on the record, he would immediately seek a similar order if there was a precedent set in this case. that's just in one state. it is not just iphones contained in prosecutors' offices, this concerns iphones stolen or lost or misplaced. this is a technique that could be used not only by law enforcement but other people who want to hack these phones as well. >> all right. thank you vex. great conversation.
8:27 pm
i'm sure this will continue. a lot more to go. why some people are threatening to boycott beyonce's tour in the wake of her super bowl performance. who is right and who is wrong? then, woosh, it's gone. i swear i saw it swallow seven people. seven. i just wish one of those people could have been mrs. johnson.

8:31 pm
calls are growing louder for a boycott of beyonce he had a world tours. joining me now, police decker houck, it is good to have all of you here. let's go. you first. some police groups are calling for a boycott of the upcoming tour. it includes asking officers to refuse to work offduty security details for these events. are you surprised at how deep this opposition to her performance is in. >> i am surprised. even on the show i thought why are we having this conversation? essentially i feel that beyonce like so many african-americans would absolutely never advocate violence against police.
8:32 pm
she is having a moment when she is connecting her art to a vibration that african-americans are on. we are standing together. young people are saying that it is not okay for police to be violent. remember the ad vent of the black panthers happens because of the police. you get the direct panthers in direct proportion to police violence. it was t . >> so some say it was black lives matter, that movement. as she just. do you feel it was ant-police? >> well, it is also racist. her support of the black will he be rags army who by the way has assassinated over 15 police officers through the years. the fact that the head of the
8:33 pm
bla, the former head, malik shabazz called for the killing of whites and their families. so dressing up her dancers like the b.l.a. tell me that was a, they've murdered and assassinated police officers for years. >> i was so encouraged that so many black people watched and all americans watched that pbs documentary. it is high time that we talk about the truth. that we really begin to analyze the correct history. there's not one narrative about the black panthers. the police don't get to tell what the black panthers are. we get to define it. >> what about the dead police officers? >> i have to laugh at harry. come on. i have to laugh at harry houck for saying this was race. i. harry is a friend. i have to laugh saying this was
8:34 pm
racist because it is not. i wish they were as vocal when we have young african-american men who die at the hands of police officers for committing crimes they should not be sentenced to death for. with that being said, i think beyonce like myself, we all agree. police officers go out every day and they serve and protect and they do so with such honor. however, there is a very, very specific pain that is felt by african-american that's beyonce and kendrick lamar are speaking to. >> let's add another layer. >> why are there very few instances? where police officers are involved in some kind of misconduct or maybe even murdered. those police officers are, they are sent to court and arrest asked convicted. >> no, they're not. >> they're not. >> they're not. >> they're not. >> you tell me which cases. you tell me which cases. we can go down the line. >> we can go down the line here.
8:35 pm
>> one at a time, please. >> that what happened in ferguson was murder, i'm sorry but it was not. what happened in -- >> we can go back. >> we can go back. >> we can go back to february 8, 1968, harry. where you had eight officers fire shots into a group of students, we can talk about that. we can talk about we have people. walter scott. >> why don't we talk about the real issue? they go without finding justice. >> why don't you talk about the real issues though? >> what real issues? >> harry, here's the thing. i don't think anyone here will say there's not an issue with people killing each other of all
8:36 pm
races. you can talk about people being shot and killed by police officers. law enforcement feels that beyonce is promoting division between law enforcement and african-american communities. i talked with rudolph giuliani. he's been brought up a lot about this and here's what he told me. >> maybe, it might not be a bad idea for people who have the fame and celebrity that she has to teach everyone, not only in her community but every other community to respect the police. to respect the uniform. to respect the uniform of our police officers, our military. that's the way i was brought up. a lot safer way to bring up your child by the way. >> this is what you do.
8:37 pm
you speak to artists and beyond. >> what are people at least in the industry saying about a responsibility of someone like a beyonce? >> well, first of all to mr. rudolph giuliani. it is the way i was brought up as well and i'm quite sure it is the way that tina and matthew knowles brought up beyonce. i think what is really interesting here. when did the conversation go from beyonce making a statement in her art to she hates the police? i don't see the correlation there. and i think it is very interesting when these people who, the majority of them. i'm talking about the police. can you let me finish? i didn't interrupt you. i sat and listened to everything you said. i would appreciate the same. what i was saying is that i think it is interesting these people that i consider everyday heroes, the majority of them. and i'm speaking about the
8:38 pm
police now are saying because we're mad at you, we are not going to, or we potentially don't want to do for you what we signed up to do. that's serve and protect. this is america. and we're allowed to have a voice. we're allowed to have freedom of speech. and if you don't want to serve and protect someone that you may not agree with, i'm not sure why you signed up to be a police officer. that's just my view. >> we have to clear this up. the one issue here is not the fact that police officers don't want to protect her. these are side jobs that the police officers get paid extra. they get paid extra to go out. this is volunteer work to wear the uniform and protect somebody like beyonce. this is not working while you're a member of the police department. you're just wearing the uniform. this is a side job. they're also protecting the people who go to the show as
8:39 pm
well. this is a side job. they don't have to do this. if they are signed through the police department to go and work at a concert, those officers have to do that. >> as i was saying earlier. an added layer on top of this, one group, one very controversial voice is saying police don't want to protect beyonce? i'll do it. i...just me...me andrd my four daughters.... ah, there's a lot of dancing and pageants that go on in our kitchens and living rooms and things like that. i've had to learn to accept certain things like the fact that my toe nails and finger nails are going to be painted constantly. but it's really awesome to watch them at their own things. they're great kids... all of them. whatever home means to you,

8:44 pm
and white folks, we don't know how to deal with that. but when one of us shows some independence, look how you treating beyonce now? you gonna pickett, you are not going to offer her police protection? i will. >> i'm going to let you handle that. >> you come to me first. you know, my answer to this is i'm still not sure how we got to this point. >> exactly. me neither. >> i am at a loss on how we got from 0 to 100 in the words of the great american poet drake, so quickly. i find myself -- >> really? >> very proudly with beyonce.
8:45 pm
very proudly, not just because they're millennials and a part of my generation but they're articulating so much pain in our communities. and i really wish harry, who is in south carolina, who is less than ten mile away from where balancer scott was killed. less than where others were gunned down. just take a moment and a deep breath. >> i was there. >> and then we can have a more productive discussion. >> listening to that. >> what about the pain i feel talking about the police officers murdered -- >> when you heard minister farrakhan saying, i'll do it. >> i don't listen to what he says. the man is a racist. and he called for the death of whites. he called for the death of jews. i wouldn't give this guy 30 seconds of my time in my life. >> revisionist history of the
8:46 pm
black panthers. i have to keep coming back to that. it is not okay to simply discount the counter intelligence. >> explain it then. >> i just encourage your viewers to watch the pbs document ri. to google counter intelligence program. to read about it. to learn about the black panthers for themselves. when you fact find about this organization, it is not as simple as a single narrative. it is not just a bunch of cop killers. >> what is a lie? that they didn't kill cops? >> did they assassinate them? >> they assassinated police officers. the fbi was watching them because they were a group of criminals. >> you don't get to kill unarmed people. you don't get on kill people who are asleep because --
8:47 pm
