1:00 pm
have their say in this presidential primary. 348 delegates are up for grabs on the democratic side. hillary clinton and bernie sanders are holding rallys today. hillary clinton will make her case to voters in rhode island about an hour from now. earlier she held an event in connecticut. chris speights joins me now. >> bernie sanders kind of really dialing up the attacks on hillary clinton today. he was hitting her on trade, fracing and really no surprise here, her big money donors. >> one of the differences between secretary clinton and myself, it is a profound difference, is how we have chosen to raise money for our campaigns. if we understand that super pacs
1:01 pm
are the vehicle by which wall street and billionaires are able to buy elections, you're damn right, we don't need a super pac. we don't want a super pac. >> so that was sanders addressing a rally of thousands of supporters in baltimore this afternoon. clinton campaigned on a smaller scale, holding a conversation with workers in connecticut. in recent days she's largely avoided hitting sanders and she's focusing her fire instead on donald trump. today she released a video urging voters to remember all his controversial positions as he really starts to pivot toward the general election. and that followed a shot she took at trump yesterday in pennsylvania where she criticized her proposal to temporarily ban muss littles from entering the country. both sanders and clinton spent friday crisscrossing that key keystone state which has the most delegates up for grabs on tuesday when voters in five states will go to the polls. sanders is behind clinton in
1:02 pm
pennsylvania by almost 30 points, according to a new poll there. he spent the day campaigning in maryland. in delaware clinton was in connecticut and rhode island. those are all states that vote on tuesday. >> of course. and you pointed out some differences in the kinds of events clinton and sanders are holding. what's behind those differences? >> you know, i think it's a question of strategy. bernie sanders trying to get people out to the polls, keep them excited. hillary clinton leading in a lot of these states and really trying to show and demonstrate her softer side. connecting with voters. she spent more than an hour in a small venue in connecticut today talking with workers, health care workers, hearing about their concerns, trying to show off that she's listening to voters. that's part of how she'll lead. bernie sanders still trying to make sure people will get excited, come out to the polls and help him kind of make up some of these deficits that he has in the polling against hillary clinton. you're seeing two different styles. also, you know, hillary clinton
1:03 pm
trying to pivot a little bit away to the general election and not focus so much on bernie sanders. when she does these kinds of events with actual voters, she's not doing a rally or having to talk to too much about bernie sanders. she can focus on the voters themselves. bernie sanders is, of course, still trying to draw those distinctions to try to get democrats out for him, pam. >> all right, chris frates, thank you for that. does sanders have a path to victory? the candidate believes he does and his campaign says it involves flipping super delegates to their side. cnn political commentator charles blow doesn't think that strategy will work. he says barring something unforeseen and unimaginable, there is no way i can see that this strategy stands a gnat's chance in hell of coming to fruition. it's a fairy tale written in pixie dust. tell us how you really feel, charlie.
1:04 pm
charles blow joins me now as long as political commentator and washington correspondent for "the new yorker" ryan lizza. charles, doing to what do you said job, you obviously think it's a long shot. why wouldn't this strategy of trying to pull in super delegates work for him? >> listen, he has the chance of pulling super delegates from states he wants. he can make a strong case that you should follow the voice of the people in your state. here's the problem. at the end of the day, if trends continue, he will have won fewer states and he will have won smaller states which fewer superdelegates. the idea of him taking a strategy where they would try to flip more superdelegates than in states than they actually even won is insane. there's no argument to be made there, if clinton continues to win the way she is winning, which is to win most of the popular vote, most of the states and most of the pledged
1:05 pm
delegates. what would be your argument if that is your strategy? there is no way that is going to happen. he knows that as well as everybody else who is paying attention to this race. ryan, sanders critics, most notably hillary clinton herself have questioned whether his proposals are realistic. in a "new york times" interview, vice president biden is defending bernie sanders. he says i don't think any democrat ever said we can't think that big. we have to downsize here because it's not realistic. i'm part of the democratic party, i'm not part of a party that says, well, we can't do it. do you think he's feeling the burn here? >> a little bit. i thought those comments were interesting. that is not at all the argument hillary clinton has been making, obviously. right? she's been saying, look, this is pie in the sky, left wing liberalism and you just can't get that kind of agenda through
1:06 pm
a divided congress. i think all democratic leaders, biden, the president, president obama, hillary clinton, they are sort of grappling with how to handle sanders and his movement, right? on the one hand, i think, look, he's winning millennials 70% to 30%. if you add up all the exit polls. that is literally the future of the democratic party. those young people, it's the millennial generation is the largest generation in american history, bigger than the baby boom generation. they are to the left of where hillary clinton is and to the left of where the obama administration has been. they are the future of the party. if you alienate that huge segment of young people, that has consequences for the future. i think everyone in the party, the leadership, is trying to figure out how do you handle sanders, how do you get him to sort of bring those people inside the party once this race is over? and i think that's a little bit of what's going on with biden.
1:07 pm
>> so it's interesting, because you point out and charles you pointed this out in your article, that sanders really has energized millennials, young people. and there have been people who have made the argument that why would he drop out? he's having -- he's bringing some good to the democratic race. and even if charles, he doesn't win any of these five states that are up for grabs on tuesday, where there's 384 delegates, do you think it might be worthwhile for sanders to stay in this race whatever the results? >> listen, there's two different arguments here. one is stay in or drop out. i say he stays in as long as he wants to, as long as he has the money to. >> why is that? why do you think that? >> well, because he's giving a voice to people, a large segment of the population. they're giving him their money. that's speaking with even more than just a vote, that's speaking with your pocketbook. that means he's tapped into something and he has to ride
1:08 pm
that out, just to show them he is going to be their advocate even at the convention to make sure part of what he's saying is part of the democratic platform. i think he wants to have as much influence on that platform as possible once it arrives there. that is a separate argument from whether or not you should try to flip the superdelegates to your favor against the popular vote. that's still two different things. also on what ryan was saying, i think it's not simply an alienation, not alienation issue. part of it is how do you peg the horizon? a lot of what sanders is saying, some democrats believe are generational changes. they're not administration changes meaning you can't achieve these sorts of changes in four years or eight years but you should definitely try to aim to achieve those changes in a generation. if you kind of aim it that way, structure it that way, arct articulate it that way, you're not actually alienating this generation. you're saying that in your
1:09 pm
lifetime, what you want now will probably come to fruition and we will fight for it. we don't believe we can do it in four years. >> ryan lizza, charles blow, thank you. appreciate your perspective. turning to prince. he was famous for giving brazen and electric performances on stage. off stage, there was another kind of giving going on quietly. more on his large donations to charity and his philanthropic efforts when we come back.

we want to take you right to the growing memorial outside paisley park where fans have been gathering all day to celebrate the musical genius of prince. the legendary artist who combined funk, guitar and flamboyant dance moves. an official cause of death,
1:13 pm
though, could take weeks as authorities await the results of an autopsy. cnn's ryan young joins me right outside paisley park. what's it like out there, ryan? >> we've seen continuing, hundreds of people still gathering here. if you look behind us, this has been the steady flow since thursday. that has continued ever since the news came out here. we talked to so many people who decided to drive more than 12 hours just to be a part of this. so many people wanted to go inside paisley park but obviously this is as far as they're going to get. they're talking, sharing stories together, writing messages. there's posters where people have brought signs where they're talking. we actually have a gathering going on right now, maybe with family and friends. as we look beyond the gates they've been opening and closing a lot this afternoon, more than 12 cars have arrived. this is the most activity we've seen in the last few days here at paisley park. not sure what exactly is going on. but that group has gone inside. in fact, our van jones is part of the group that went inside paisley park. but talking to people who have
1:14 pm
been here for several days about the experiences they've had with prince, we talked to one record store owner who says he'll never forget his encounters with the artist. >> it does something when you -- not just because it's prince and he's such a huge worldwide star, but when you shake another human being's hand and less than five days later they're not with you anymore, it just does something to you. it really makes you think about life. >> now, look, a lot of people have been asking about the investigation that's been going on. they've been asking us do we have more information about the memorial service but if there's any more information from the sheriff's office. that hasn't happened right throunow. later on tonight they'll be playing "purple rain" at twins park. thousands of people will probably gather to watch this movie. the party that went on here, the dance party didn't stop until 7:00 a.m. you can obviously understand
1:15 pm
people are still celebrating his life. >> i am not surprised by that. ryan young, thank you so much. prince by the way was a notoriously private superstar who did not boast about his generous gifts to charity. only a few people intimately knew about prince's focus on philanthropy. he believed young african-americans needed to understand technology in order to compete in today's digital world. he wanted to do something about it. my next guest got to know the real prince, he learned to write computer code, former national director of #yes we code, kwame joins me. thank you for coming on. tell me why this issue was so close to prince's heart. some people may hear that and may not have known that about prince. >> yes, absolutely. it's a very powerful story. in essence, cnn commentator van jones was actually with prince in his home watching the footage
1:16 pm
after the george zimmerman acquittal in the killing the trayvon martin. we could see a young white kid wearing a hoodie and think that's zuckerberg. prince said, well, no, i think it's because we put a concerted effort in creating more black zuckerbergs. put attention, focus, limelight and resources to help train and lift up a generation of young people, you know, youth of color, african-american youth from distressed communities so they can see themselves as being the innovators of the tech innovation economy. he went to work and i was honored and privileged to spend time with him, one-on-one time and work to help make that vision a reality. >> this is more of a recent
1:17 pm
endeavor. >> the biggest thing, pamela was simply that prince, keep in mind that prince has never put his name with any other organization, entity, product his entire professional career. so what he did was he partnered up with essence festival in new orleans and made a condition. he said i'll headline this concert but there has to be a well publicized hack-a-thon for young african-american young people and i'll headline the concert so we can bring attention to this concept of yes we code. i'd like to say, yes we code is an organization, it's a call, a mantra to shine light of teaching youth of color the coding skills, the tech innovation skills, the entrepreneurial skills. prince knew if he put his hand on it, blessed this particular organization and that call, that mant mantra, it would put focus so
1:18 pm
philanthropists, private folks and the media would pay attention to it and shine a light on it and make it flourish. >> a lot of people didn't realize the philanthropic work and charity work that he did. did you ever ask him why that was? >> you know, i didn't. i actually knew why. the other side of prince which is not discussed as much, too, is his spiritual background. as a jehovah's witness, that was part of the tenet of his faith, is not to call attention to his philanthropic work. when he was touring, sheila e. said they would go to a home for kids or disadvantaged children or deaf children and just hang out with them. that was a part of his ethos. you think today there's people in oakland, california, who have green homes. smart homes, solar panels on their house and don't know prince paid for those solar panels. he was saying that programs in oakland where youth of color
1:19 pm
were able to learn how to put solar panels in retrofit buildings. he was sending money anonymously to be able to support and pay. there are so many people, organizes, families who have been helped by this extraordinary human being for decades that today don't even know he was the one who made it happen. >> incredible. you say that prince gave you a black history lesson on youtube. tell us about that. >> yes. you know, it was one of the most amazing and surreal experiences. it was the first night i was with him. he flew me out to his home and we got to spend time together. after eating dinner and watching the pacers game together web said -- he took me through an hour and a half on ub, juyoutub looking at clips through the extraordinary accomplishments of african-americans. we listened to ike and tina turner, james brown.
1:20 pm
he wanted to show me how back in the day there was a people that performed and a way that production was done. he wanted to bring that back. i was fortunate to do production work with him as well. >> that must have been surreal for an hour and a half history lesson. kwame, thank you. >> it's my honor. high school fights happen but not like this. an honor roll student beaten to death. her principal says it happened on campus during school hours. how could this have happened? olay luminous illuminates skin with pearl optics science. your concert style might show your age, your skin never will. with olay you age less, so you're ageless. olay.

tensions on the korean peninsula are reaching a new level. that's after the north reportedly fired a submarine launched ballistic missile. officials in south korea say the missile flew about 1 the miles before dropping into the sea. for it to be considered a true threat, the missile needed to reach 185 miles. still, one u.s. official said they are watching this very closely and, quote, north korea's sublaunch capability has gone from a joke to something very serious. well, there are still lots of questions surrounding the dechblg a 16-year-old honor roll student in wilmington, delaware. it happened on campus early thursday. a fight in the girls bathroom that left one of the girls so badly hurt she later died. rachel crane is following the story. >> reporter: a community still
1:25 pm
reeling after the death of 16-year-old amy joyner francis, assaulted in her high school bathroom. >> every time we have to come out like this, somebody's lost a child, somebody's lost a loved one. it's just too much. you know? it's entirely too much. >> reporter: the incident happened thursday morning as classes began at howard high school of technology in delaware, according to officials. investigators say a fight broke out between amy and another student and others quickly joined in. amy was air lifted to a local children's hospital where she was pronounced dead. her family and friends are trying to make sense of their loss. >> she was a wonderful young lady. and the fact that she's gone, it really affects us tremendously. she made a huge difference in society. we need more young people like that. >> reporter: according to police, two people were brought in for questioning. authorities do not believe weapons were involved.
1:26 pm
the case is still under investigation. but that brings little comfort to amy's family. >> this is not a young lady who was involved in street activity. this is an honor roll student, manager of the wrestling team whose mother and father were very engaged in her life as well as her siblings. >> reporter: some students say the fight was over a boy but the exact cause of the deadly altercation is still a mystery. there was a vigil held in her honor on thursday evening. this outpouring of love and grieving and support is not just isolated to this community. the hash tag just for amy has had thousands of posts on twitter, on instagram and facebook. pamela? >> such a disturbing story. rachel crane, thank you for that. coming up on this saturday afternoon, the race for the white house is all coming down to delegates. with just three days before the next super tuesday, republican candidates are scrambling for every last one.

after weeks of attacks from donald trump, members of a somewhat bruised republican party spent the better part of a week ate florida resort, gathering, regrouping and preparing for what could likely be a contested convention. at those meetings, reince priebus, chairman of the rnc made it absolutely clear the party would support whomever is nominated. >> it's essential to victory in november that we all support our candidate. this goes for everyone. whether you're a county party chairman, an rnc member or a presidential candidate. politics is a team sport. we can't win unless we rally around whoever becomes our nominee. >> let's be clear here. while this meeting was at a fancy florida resort, it was anything but a vacation. cnn was there for everything, even the stuff we weren't
1:31 pm
invited to. take a look. >> we have a system that's rigged. we have a system that's crooked. we have this delegate system which is a sham. >> the gop has been under siege by the front-runner, donald trump. the republican establishment wants to show they're in tune with the grass roots. they're throwing a party on a luxury yacht. the press is not invited. so we got our own boat. hi, republicans, what are you going to do about donald trump? trump, kasich or cruz? >> kasich. >> you think we're going to tell you? >> we're in hollywood, florida, for a meeting of the gop establishment. this is the final national republican committee meeting before the convention in cleveland. they're meeting at a luxury resort north of miami. beautiful pools, right on the beach. not a bad place to rest up before what will be an insane convention. >> it looks like he came to terms with the possibility of a trump nomination.
1:32 pm
>> i'm realistic. obviously it's been a different year. >> nice way of saying it. >> yes. it's been challenging. it is what it is. >> donald trump has been calling the delegate system unfair or even corrupt. we talked to a bunch of members of the actual gop establishment. they say it's not corrupt at all. the rules have been there for a long time. donald trump just has to read the instruction manual. >> it isn't rigged. it's a little bit complicated. we're allowed to make the rules. some people who say it isn't fair don't have credibility with me. >> my advice to mr. trump is be mr. art of deal. it is up to you to go out there and win those delegate votes, vote by vote and fight for them. >> he's an insurgent candidate. he's trying to appeal on a populous level. i don't take it that he really means it. >> usually at this point in the contest, we kind of know who the nominee is going to be and the party starts to rally around that person. but that is not happening now. you've got donald trump, john
1:33 pm
kasich, ted cruz, all fighting it out for delegates. >> why are you here in hollywood, florida? >> to meet with elected delegates and leaders from the party across the country. >> you're not going to be the nominee when it's all said and done, thank you. >> john kasich and ted cruz came here to talk to rnc members to try and get more delegates before the convention. >> i do not believe donald has a path to winning majority. >> donald trump is not coming himself but he's dispatched his staff to do the same thing. this meeting comes at a crucial time. the convention is just a couple months away. >> the candidate has to have 1,237 votes. it's like going down a football field. if you're three feet away from the goal loiine, you don't get e points. >> you have to play by the rules. it's a very open process. >> two words, hillary clinton. >> does this canal connect to
1:34 pm
cleveland? >> all right. let's bring in cnn political commentator and trump supporter jeffrey lord. also cnn political report er to labianca. >> you heard those rnc members there telling trump flat out earn it as one of them said, be mr. art of the deal. they think he has the same chance as everyone else, clearly. but cruz has been very successful picking up delegates at these state conventions. do you think trump has had a fair shot? >> well, i think he's winning, obviously. i think he's going to get to 1,237 or get very close to it and then the art of the deal will kick in. i was at the 1976 republican convention where president ford was ahead and some of the reagan people, as i recall, abandoned
1:35 pm
ship and went to president ford and put him over the top. people like to be with a winner. i do think we're getting there. one other thing, ma'am, i've gone back and looked at all the nominees of both parties since 1960. in every single case be the person who was far enough ahead eventually won the nomination. >> it's interesting, tom, just hearing cruz speak there and elsewhere, he's really banking on donald trump not making it to that 1,237 before the convention. on the other hand you hear the trump camp including trump supporter jeffrey lord saying he thinks he will reach that 1,237. why are there such opposing views of this and what sort of going on behind the scenes? >> the thing to happen is the republican party and reince priebus made it clear 1,237 is the number you need to get. how you get there is the big question. once you need 1,237 in pledge delegates or whether you can get
1:36 pm
in line with free agents, that will help explain why there's so much anger over -- [ inaudible ] -- because when cruz was there, he took away those unbound delegates from trump. he shrunk the margin that trump can play with. hypothetically, if trump were to walk in with 1,100 delegates, then he has to get another 137 over that. and what cruz has been doing is shrinking that that he has to work with. that explains a lot of politics here. with every successful election it gets harder. there's less to play with. >> and jeffrey, on that note, donald trump is insisting that his supporters will never leave him and he said this at a rally earlier. let's take a listen. >> if they had people on the other dare, we'll never leave trump. they said one of dishonest media
1:37 pm
people, the world's most dishonest people. what would it take to get you to leave donald trump? a woman, great woman. i just wanted to hug that television set. i was watching. she had ten of her friends behind her. what would it take for you to drop donald trump and go to another candidate? >> listen, stop talking. we're never dropping him. there's nothing he can do. there's nothing. it's true. >> so jeffrey, honestly, flat out, was there any risk of this trademark confidence can become overconfidence? >> no. i tell you, there's a delegate candidate in my own congressional district i met and he more or less said the same thing, he's with donald trump. i don't think these people will be moved. where we do have a problem and gary tuchman from cnn had an interesting report the other night, people who are elected where their district mandates they be for trump on the first ballot but really they're for
1:38 pm
cruz. there's where you get a rub. they're not trump people. they're being forced by the laws of their state. >> you have places like pennsylvania coming up where, correct me if i'm wrong, they're not bound to any candidate. they can vote for who they want. >> that is correct. >> come convention time. >> i will be voting here in pennsylvania on tuesday. i will be making sure i know exactly, because it's only their name on the ballot. it doesn't say what candidate they support. so it's my job to know going in the ones with the front delegates. there will be, i think, as many as ten, if not more kanes on the ballot. we only have three slots. i have to know who those three trump people are own cast my vote accordingly. >> tuesday is a big day, obviously, with all these states. i just want to talk quickly about this issue that trump and cruz are divided on. it's the lgbt rights they most recently sparred over the transgender bathroom laws passed
1:39 pm
in several states. let's listen to what cruz said in plainfield, indiana. >> it doesn't make any sense at all to have a grown adult man, a stranger, alone in a bathroom with a little girl. and i got to say, the fact that donald would give in to the pc police the very same people that had espn fire curt schilling for making that common sense observati observation, well, it a couple months ago, that he us- could be the most politically correct person on the face of the planet. but i think it is time -- it is crazy donald and it's phony donald, too. >> so, tom, the big question now are republicans going to support donald trump as the nominee if he's seen on deviating on these sorts of social issues?
1:40 pm
>> you know, what's going on here, if the cruz people have set this. they put a lot of time and effort into indiana. this lgbt issue is critical. within i was working at the indy star there, religious freedom fight and the gay marriage fight, as it happened in the state legislature prefaced a lot of this. i'm not sure that's the type of thing where an issue might play better for trump in the northeast. in the heartland, the cross roads of america, as it's called there in indiana, that's not very popular stance [ inaudible ]. he's put so much into indiana, afraid of blocking him from the 1,237. >> i guess it's no surprise he's so focused there. pleasure as always, gentlemen. thank you very much. >> thank you. >> thank you.

1:47 pm
symbol. >> he was in control of it from beginning to end, you can see that. you spoke about youtube and it's not on there. it's not on apple music, not on spotify. that's a great example of currently how he did it in the later years of his career. he didn't really trust technology. he had a distaste for digital music. he said albums still matter and he pulled all of his music off of youtube and he went exclusively to title. why did he do that? they gave him more artistic control. they allowed him to be able to have more hands in the production of the music, not to mention, you know, they probably paid a little better. that was another reason why he kind of did that. that was a great example. >> and let's talk about that a little bit more. he not only controlled his music, it was also about his brand, right? >> yes, definitely. that's why right now more than anything, when we think of prince, we think of two things. we think of royalty and we think of this artist. it's because no one is ever going to be like prince genagai.
1:48 pm
that was one of the greatest legacies he's given today's artists. before prince there was never an artist that went from "a" to "z" in terms of putting the music out there, performing, being in such control. now we see taylor swift, beyonce, can yay wekanye west w identities. that starts at the root for prince. >> i want to get your thoughts on this statement from contributing editor for "rolling stone" who said artists today should thank the legend for their artistic freedom. what do you think about that? >> that's true. he went beyond genre and gender and basically for prince to kind of push back against warner brothers back in the early '90s and say i'm going to become an unpronounceable symbol because you don't own me, i'm not a slave to you, that's why he had the slave on his face when he used to perform.
1:49 pm
it was kind of a big revolutionary thing that artists today are still doing, that are still producing. that are still making themselves more identities and artists rather than just cookie cutter musicians. >> something you told me earlier, i found fascinating was he fiercely protected the music he did release but also there's all this music he hasn't released, right? >> right. like i said earlier about 70% of the music that prince has produced has reportedly never been even released. think about how prolific that is. this is a guy that had so many albums, multiplatinum albums and one of the most famous albums of all time in "purple rain," yet we haven't even scratched the surface of the type of music he was doing and the type of experimentation he might have been doing. >> really remarkable. frank, thank you so much for that. >> thank you. one thing you may not have known about prince, he was a huge basketball fan.
