tv   Erin Burnett Out Front  CNN  April 29, 2016 4:00pm-5:01pm PDT

4:00 pm
>> cnn will advertise this later tonight 9:00 p.m. eastern, anderson cooper, nothing left unsaid. and remember you can always follow us on twitter, tweet me at cnn sit room or at wolf blitzer. please be sure to join us monday here in "the situation room." i'm wolf blitzer, thank you very much for watching. erin burnett "outfront" starts right now. "outfront" next, donald trump crossing a major threshold, now has more than a thousand delegates, this as he faces protesters out in california, protesters out in full force. plus, does john kasich regret his pact with ted cruz. and why is he comparing himself to tiger woods? the government is out front, more on that quote unquote deal or alliance. and hillary clinton says she
4:01 pm
has worked with men going off the reservation, good evening, i'm erin burnett. "outfront" tonight, breaking news, donald trump reaching a major milestone, officially he has more than a thousand delegates, he is 235 away from clinching the nomination outright. this comes as protesters greet him in california as he arrives to make a speech today. demonstrators clashing with police, at times breaking through the police line. some arrested, one young woman arrested. as police use the batons to keep them away. the trump group was delayed more than an hour. there his motorcade had to stop, he got out, led to his suv into the hall by a back entrance to escape the mayhem.
4:02 pm
>> that was not the easiest entrance i have ever made. my wife called and said there are helicopters following you. and then we did, and went under a fence and through a fence. oh, boy, felt like i was crossing the border, actually. you know? >> the riot gear and protests coming after a night of violence outside a california trump rally. hundreds swarming the streets blocking traffic, rocks thrown at one group, a police car, smashing the windows, kicking the doors, a trump supporter there, bloodied. and "outfront" tonight, the site of today's protest, dan, what happened there. >> reporter: well, hey, erin, donald trump is gone and that means the protesters are gone, as well. but boy, i tell you what. you had quite a scene for several hours. hundreds of protesters, first of all given the fact that we are close to san francisco it is not surprising that you would have hundreds of protesters converge
4:03 pm
on the california gop convention and specifically protest donald trump and some of his rhetoric. but within that group you certainly had an element that was intent on causing trouble. you had some who were throwing eggs and other objects at police officers. trying to push police officers. there was a group that was trying to set things on fire. and at one point you had the group of protesters actually trying to get inside the hotel, of course they were blocked. but that is when you had all the pushing and shoving. and because they had blocked the entrances that is when the trump campaign along with the california highway patrol had to make a last minute decision. pull over actually to the shoulder on the highway and have mr. trump going through the rear exit. but of course, things are calmer now. you did have one person who was arrested and one person who was injured. erin? >> all right, thank you very much, dan simon, as we have seen from the site of that rally.
4:04 pm
jason, look, violence and protesters, nothing new, but frankly we have not seen this for a while until today. what is the campaign telling you? >> well, the best person to talk about that his donald trump himself. and he did poke light at the situation. at least a few of those folks actually did get inside the hotel here. they dropped an anti-trump banner. one woman with a megaphone shouting trump equals hate. trump addressed the issue when he spoke here at the convention, as you saw, basically poking fun at the situation saying what it was like to get inside must be something like that what an illegal immigrant experiences trying to cross the border. he made the joke twice, made it at the end, and it was made by applause at the end. certainly not by all. a number of people
4:05 pm
said they felt like we had an opportunity to talk about unity. he did mention unity when he was here and mention it during his speech. but some people felt that it was a missed opportunity. >> all right, jason, thank you very much. and as jason talking about the joke that donald trump made twice about crossing the border i want to go now to amy holmes, and bernie sanders supporter sally cohen, and kayleigh, let me start with you. you heard him say donald trump made that joke twice, so let me just play what he said again, about what he said he quote unquote went through today. >> we went under a fence and through a fence. oh, boy, felt like i was crossing the border, actually. you know, it's true. i was crossing the border. but i got here. >> is he stoking the flames with comments like that? >> oh, i don't think so, there is a politically correct crowd
4:06 pm
that will look at this as a chance to take offense. but 20 protesters were arrested. they were beating down cop cars, trying to turn them over, punching donald trump supporters, the left has a problem with violence, it's inexcusable. it's time to hillary clinton and bernie sanders saying it's unacceptable. we don't accept violence. it's time they do likewise, this is a left wing problem. >> oh, my gosh, we in the media in general we love the pictures of the violence. and when the protests in baltimore were peaceful for weeks, we didn't cover that. so suddenly we cover it. we didn't talk about that. number two, we talk about donald trump who has run his candidacy on violence, saying we'll keep muslims out of this country.
4:07 pm
>> but does that justify punching people in the face -- >> he is the one who said maybe that guy deserved to be roughed up. there is no question, look, i'll say it again, the violence on the part of some of these protesters who are protesting against trump is unacceptable. it is not only unacceptable, it's counterproductive to their goals. the point of the protests is to highlight the contrast of love and peace against donald trump's rhetoric of hate and violence. >> and you're -- >> he is not denouncing it. i'm talking about leadership. >> i'm talking about leadership, too, why don't i hear this from hillary clinton and bernie sanders -- denouncing the violence? >> you have. >> when, the time and place? >> at the bernie sanders, the need to make a disclaimer to not let things get violent. come on, you can criticize left all you want. but let's be clear, donald trump knows what he is doing, which is stoking anger and blame on the right.
4:08 pm
>> who is more to blame for what happened here? because let's be clear, donald trump has offered to pay the legal bills, saying i feel like i want to punch somebody in the face of the but certainly in the last 24 hours, it has been protesters who have turned over cop cars and been violent. >> kayleigh, i think you made a great point about the media standard asking them to denounce this. this always happens on the republican side if the republican supporters act up. but i want to make a different point which kind of endorses yours, sally. these rallies are great for donald trump. they underscore his number one issues that brought him to the front of the pack on the republican side. that is illegal immigration. donald trump should have made those flags himself. that for republicans this is a hot button situation. some of them were confirming a lot of voter fears.
4:09 pm
>> so david gergen, do you think there is a point to what amy is saying that this is actually good for donald trump? >> i don't think it particularly is good for donald trump. listen, first of all, his joke that he repeated was totally tasteless and inappropriate and in that sense he only reminds people of some of the things, the bluster of the past. but i do think there were some of the issues like the earlier rallies, his own people were taunting the people earlier. i thought he bore the responsibility to quiet it down and get rid of the violence among his own people. no slugging, shouting or pushing if people are here peacefully. what we saw today for california is very different. and that is protesters rushing the police. and police barricading and throwing things at the police. the pictures we saw of rocking that police car. >> right. >> those are not donald trump's
4:10 pm
responsibility. he is not directly responsible for that and should not be held to account for that. i don't think they are necessarily hillary clinton or bernie sanders supporters either, they're just people angry about the system. and we are in a white hot part of the campaign. but i don't think the protests should be pinned on donald trump. >> but again, we're talking about a small minority of a very large protest. and that is true, just like we should not say all trump supporters at a rally who are responsible for the handful of protesters who punch people in the face owe. >> and we're also -- >> we're also shifting the conversation of why they're protesting, which is that they're showing up -- >> some of these people are showing up specifically to cause trouble. >> and throwing rocks. >> just like nazis are showing up supporting trump, but you don't want to smear every supporter with that. >> if i may, let's also look at california history. and getting back to the mexican flag that this is also about symbolism
4:11 pm
when it comes to the issue of illegal immigration. over a decade ago there was a pro-immigration anti-immigration reform. huge rally in southern california with mexican flags. and those organizers realized it was a mistake. so the second rally they made sure to wave the american flags. because we're talking about becoming citizens of this country. so last night waving those mexican flags i promise you was a huge mistake for the reasons you're saying, sally, is to highlight their issues. it did not highlight that. it highlighted illegal immigration. >> you will all be with me, "outfront" next countdown to indiana because this all comes in the context of this must-win state. donald trump now with over a thousand delegates, can ted cruz stop him from becoming the republican nominee? it all happens in indiana. and that is donald trump's latest claim. and the history of republican primaries, i've gotten the most votes in the
4:12 pm
history of the republican party. right? >> does that add up? well, we have the math for you tonight. and what happened to the so-called cruz/kasich pact? well, tonight, john kasich answers the question.

4:16 pm
with comments from the governor, turned out to be not so much. >> i have come to my decision about who i'm supporting. and i'm not against anybody. but i will be voting for ted cruz. i particularly want to commend donald trump, who i think has given voice to the frustration of millions of working americans, with a lack of progress in washington, d.c. >> we have more from indiana with the latest. certainly not what you would call a full-thro full-throated endorsement. how significant will that be for ted cruz? >> reporter: well, i think it's particularly important, especially since they need every delegate they can get. here on the ground it is important how many will deliver for ted cruz, especially because it was not a ringing endorsement for senator
4:17 pm
cruz. he went on to praise donald trump during that radio interview. certainly i think the cruz campaign hoped for a warmer endorsement for ted cruz, this is something i asked him about in indiana. this is how he responded. >> i recognize the media wants to do what they can to poo-poo the endorsement. it is very significant that the governor of indiana is supporting me. >> now, the cruz campaign and pence have not answered outright if he will hit the road and campaign with cruz here in indiana. the governor was asked about it. and he did not commit how much he would intend to get out there on the campaign trail. i think the cruz campaign hoped he would certainly hit the road, such as where governor walker really hit the road. that was seen widely why cruz was able to
4:18 pm
get over the finish line in wisconsin. and of course a big night for cruz here in indiana. >> such a huge night. and look as you have been reporting on the ground there he pulled out all the stops and put everything on the line. truly do or die for ted cruz. from what you have been seeing on the ground, the feel, will it be enough to get him a win in that state? >> well, i certainly think it is still a huge question mark. i think there are a lot of fingers crossed and breaths held within the cruz campaign. because put simply the stakes have just been raised so much in the last week. you have this really hail mary passes, triplicate events, not only the carly fiorina pick, and now john kasich, and the alliance with the governor's support. really all signs point to senator cruz having to do well and of course the cruz campaign has been very clear on seeing this state as pivotal. and here on the ground we see
4:19 pm
senator cruz, and what his path forward will be if he doesn't perform well on tuesday. here moments ago in indiana he said look i'm in it until the end. i anticipate campaigning until the end, and added look, as long as i am remaining viable. >> very telling, thank you very much. and now back to my panel. david gergen, let me come straight to you with this big news. trump making a path with the thousand delegates, that includes the cnn delegates that have decided to vote for him. it gets to 1,002. >> i think it is very close, now that we cracked the thousand number, which is great, very great. >> is he unstoppable now, david? i mean, no one else is even close. >> he is not unstoppable. but he is darn hard to stop and that is
4:20 pm
because he has so much momentum coming out of the last two weeks. you know, there was a time about four weeks ago when ted cruz, i thought the momentum shifted to cruz around wisconsin. and the country had a chance to take a closer look at ted cruz. and then stepped back and ted cruz let donald trump get off the mat. trump had made a lot of mistakes, self-destructing with women. looked like he was back out of the race. and trump came back. the environment, the -- for the political class, it's entirely different now. there is a growing and widespread belief that donald trump is going to be the nominee. and i think it's going to be hard for ted cruz to overcome that in indiana. >> amy, unstoppable? >> to pile on the metaphors, donald trump is a freight train at this point in the race. i talked to one woman who worked in indiana on the david murdoch
4:21 pm
campaign, she said the governor, big yawn, mostly for pence and him to shore up his votes in indiana, rather than for ted cruz. she also pointed out that yesterday donald trump had a rally in evansville where he attracted 12,000 people and the environment was electric. compare that to bernie sanders, about 2200, hillary clinton, only drawing a couple of hundred. so donald trump is a phenomenon. and i'm not going to make a prediction about indiana, but pence, so what? >> does trump even need to take indiana? it's not a winner take all. he and cruz are going to walk with with delegates, if trump doesn't win it, it used to be indiana was a must-win. do you think it's a must-win for trump? >> i don't think it's a must-win, he needs so many delegates, he will win west virginia. i think he can win
4:22 pm
oregon, washington, california has is 70-odd delegates, he can pick up delegates there. in addition to all of those which are still on the table there are about 200 delegates out there, unbound delegates that donald trump can get into his corner. when you consider this pile over here he will get on the first ballot. >> you just heard what amy said, like he was courted by everybody. luke warm endorsement. he was like i'm voting for ted cruz, but six nice things he said about donald trump. he is in a ckocontested battle himself. he is clearly not afraid to say positive things about donald trump, this whole don't say anything about me because i'm scared. >> not afraid or the opposite, feels like he has to because he is in a contested race. we're watching a lot of the republican party kind of coming around and saying a lot of lukewarm things about donald trump, seems to be
4:23 pm
the sort of moderate republicans saying well, if i have to. and pence is a different character. he is a dyed in the wool social conservative, passed the profoundly anti-gay law that he had to walk back. he is aligned with cruz, he should be a cruz supporter. the fact he waited so long and felt he had to pay homage to donald trump really speaks volumes to where the party is right now. >> and the 12,000 people showing up at the rally, mike pence saw that too and wants to make sure he cast the net wide. >> so what is the bottom line? will it be a big night for donald trump? >> at the point i'm not willing to make predictions. but i do agree this is a must-win for ted cruz. he has said if this is his firewall, if it crumbles, he is underneath the rubble, let me put it that way. >> david gergen, i know you said he is not unstoppable, but
4:24 pm
incredibly hard to stop. and ted cruz will stay in this, he says, as long as he is viable. is he viable if he loses indiana? >> i don't think he is viable if he loses indiana, because then he will lose california. i would not be at all surprised if ted cruz drops out if he loses indiana. >> all right, thank you all very much. next, donald trump says he is making history with the most gop primary votes ever. well, you know, sometimes he makes claims that don't add up. does this one? well, we did the numbers and will have them for you. and what about the pact between ted cruz and john kasich? well, governor kasich answers that question directly next. y c, muddling through your morning is nothing new. ...your nose is the only thing on your mind... ...and to get relief, anything is fair game. introducing rhinocort® allergy spray from the makers of zyrtec®. powerful relief from your most frustrating nasal allergy symptom* ,all day and all night.

breaking news tonight, the republican race for president, donald trump hitting that crucial spot, topping a thousand delegates with ten states still to vote. here is trump's claim. >> i think it has already
4:29 pm
happened. but in the history of primaries, republican primaries, i have gotten the most votes. in the history of the republican party. right? and -- we have not even hit some of the big states yet. >> true? well, tom foreman is outside right now with the big number. so tom, the bottom line, has donald trump made history? >> erin, he very well might. by our count right now with about 80% of the primaries and caucuses done, he has had about 10 million americans vote to support him here. again, with 80% done, comparing very favorably to the total number of people who voted for some recent republican nominees, for example, mitt romney got about 10.1 million, john mccain, got about 1.9 million, and the
4:30 pm
reigning champ, george bush, yes, bear in mind each one of these candidates had a lot of people challenging them early on and that splits the vote up. but the challengers in these three races dropped off a little bit earlier and there were not as many robust challengers late into the race has donald trump has raced. so really what he has done here is he has had to win these numbers of votes while fighting longer and harder through a more congested field. erin? >> all right, if he becomes the nominee, tom, he needs to win over those voters who are still supporting people like ted cruz, and never mind marco rubio who dropped out earlier. can he do that? >> that is the question. you can look at this a different way. that is the historic comparison. look at what is happening right now. yes, donald trump has more than 10 million, but ted cruz has almost 7 million votes in his pocket so far. john kasich, more than 3.5 million. all the
4:31 pm
others combined, almost 5 million. run that together, this is the part the trump people have to be concerned about. more than 15 million republicans have not chosen him. and if he does want to make history, and if he wants to be the nominee or becomes the nominee, he absolutely has to find a way to get some of those 15 million to join his 10 million. if he does that, then yes, erin, he will make history. >> that is amazing when you lay out the numbers so clearly there. he needs to get 15 million, thank you so much, tom foreman. and "outfront" now, ohio governor and republican candidate john kasich, governor, thank you so much for coming. the largest newspaper in the state said you offered the best case for republican voters, but then offered it's unfortunate that indiana voters have been given no chance to hear from the candidate most qualified to
4:32 pm
represent the republican party in the fall campaign for the white house. governor, was it a mistake to make that deal with ted cruz and not pull out all the stops and go into indiana and win it? >> well, erin, it's all about resources. you allocate your resources based on where you think you can do best. look, i have been out-spending this campaign virtually more than anybody. no, i think we did the right thing, yesterday i was in california, oregon, look, we are most likely headed to an open convention and when we get there the day donald trump gets there will be his best day. and then from there he is going to decline because he can't win in the fall. >> now, he of course noted today he crossed a key threshold, he has 1,002 delegates, he says this race is over if he gets that close to the magic number.
4:33 pm
he has a point, is he right, if he wins indiana, it's over? >> no, i don't think it's over if he wins indiana, the fact is he better come at exactly the right number, because if he does not i believe in the second ballot he will decline. i mean, that is what i believe. he has very high negatives. and while he may have crossed the threshold on getting the most amount of votes positively he also has the most negative votes. the most votes against him. and the other time we've seen that is with barry goldwater. look, i just think if we want to win the white house and we want to hold the supreme court, you know, make sure we have a conservative court. if we want to keep control of the united states senate the best person to do that in virtuallily every po -- virtually every poll is me, erin, little old me. >> it is true, but again back to this issue of indiana and why you didn't put resources there, you know, you had this deal,
4:34 pm
alliance, whatever term you want to use, ted cruz was going to focus in indiana and you were going to focus elsewhere. he and his runningmate, carly fiorina, you know, they said something, she said anyone who votes for you is wasting their vote. here she is. >> just to be clear, a vote for john kasich is a vote for donald trump. because john ksich has absoluly no path to the nomination. not now, not at a contested convention. john kasich is throwing your vote away. >> throwing their vote away. i mean, if you're in indiana do you say to indiana voters if you want to stop trump the best thing to do is vote for ted cruz -- >> i don't say anything -- but let me point out something to you. i don't want to go back and forth to the ted cruz campaign, but ted cruz says when you can't mathematically win you should get out. he can't mathematically
4:35 pm
win and he will not be the nominee. what we say is spend your resources where you think you can do best and i'll spend mine, for the entire purpose of keeping hillary clinton from being president of the united states. i'm not going to comment more on cruz or hillary or anybody else. i have other things to do, which is to comment on the economy, which is growing at a very slow rate. the middle class is hurt as a result of that. we have to get leadership in this country and i'm not going to live on the dark side of the street. i'm a candidate who wants to bring people together and believe we can have a better america not just for ourselves but for our children. >> all right, governor, i appreciate your time as always. >> all right, erin, thank you. and up next, a top republican says that john boehner didn't go far enough not comparing donald trump to lucifer. i have a lot of experience dealing with men who sometimes

4:40 pm
no love for ted cruz. the presidential candidate facing an uphill battle to unite his party and to stop donald trump. if it was not harsh enough, the former house speaker john boehner came out and called donald trump lucifer in the flesh this week. >> reporter: former house speaker john boehner did not hold back his true feelings about ted cruz. >> lucifer in the flesh. but i have never worked with a more miserable [ bleep ]. >> many republicans on capitol hill are piling on. >> then you know you got the former speaker, you know, basically calling him a miserable sob. that wasretty harsh. i would not have called him miserable. and then you had the other issue, too, where you know he said he is like lucifer
4:41 pm
in the flesh, i mean, somebody better contact lucifer about this, because maybe he is upset about this. >> green eggs and ham? >> after two years of fighting, there is no love lost between members of congress and ted cruz. battles over the debt ceiling, and leading the charge against obamacare which caused a government shutdown. and calling mitch mcconnel a liar. >> i think it was the wrong thing to do, contrary to the rules. >> on the campaign trail, cruz has not held back calling his republican colleagues a part of the corrupt washington cartel. cruz says he is the only one that stands up for conservative
4:42 pm
values. privately, cruz has done damage control enlisting former texas senator phil graham, a long-time washington insider to help build relationships with the house and senate leadership. yet, even some of his allies think he should do more. >> i think ted would be well served to reach out to his colleagues. i know he has to some. i know at the end of the day the more support he gets from the spectrum of the republican party the more viable he becomes to trump. >> something that cruz has struggled with, even before his washington days. cruz writes as a kid he had enough of being the unpopular nerd. many republicans now say cruz' tactics are the reason for his unpopularity. >> we were called surrenders, told we were not pure, didn't measure up. we were not sufficiently resolute. that is
4:43 pm
not the way to make friends. >> we saw some start to warm up to donald trump. increasingly more say they would be okay if he became the standard-bearer, including john cornyn, who thinks that donald trump could be good for his ticket, even though a while back he thought trump could be an albatross. now other quarters of the republican party are seeing them shift from the never cruz moment. >> you know, you saw congressman dent there supporting john kasich. he said comparing ted cruz to lucifer is not fair to lucifer, are you surprised at the vitriol levelled at ted cruz? >> not at all. it is important to note that a couple of years ago, they conspired to bring down john boehner as speaker of the house. when you engage in political assassination, you're
4:44 pm
just asking somebody else to bring out the knife down the road. you have to keep your back to the wall if you do that. you strike a king you better kill him. >> and senator mike lee, one of only a few of cruz' fellow senators actually support him. and lee did not hold back in his defense of cruz. here is senator mike lee. >> i am appalled that john boehner would do this. i held my tongue for years on john boehner, even when i disagreed with him. i never saw ted cruz engage in any of the despicable acts that john boehner engaged in. i have had it. >> do you think the tone of john boehner's words were too personal or not? >> no, i don't, listen, he came in to washington intentionally trying to stir up a storm. he wanted to win publicity so he
4:45 pm
could make this race. you know, you can talk to people in houston who understood this. you r o reap what you sew in this game. it's not at all surprising that at a moment that is white hot, so intent in indiana that people's tempers are exploding and they're letting out their real feelings. we'll get over this. but i'll tell you it will not be a fraternal club back in the senate after senator cruz is back there. >> well, i can only imagine what that will be like. interesting point that that would be coming if he is not the nominee. thank you so much, david gergen. and "outfront," hillary clinton speaking exclusively to cnn who says she has lots of experience with men who go off the reservation, who is she talking about? and anthony bourdain, what is the one food he is calling an

that she, herself, has been accused by women of being an enabler in terms of the relationship with bill clinton and that's a serious deal. but i would like to say i find it quite fascinating when sarah palin is accused of being a moron and idiot and every liberal feels free to mock her wardrobe, this, that and everything about her, liberals doing this. nobody says a peep. the moment donald trump says something about the woman card, then hillary is just a god. such a double standard. >> this is a charge trump leveled at hillary clinton more than once. today he tweeted crooked hillary clinton, perhaps the most dishonest person to have ever run for the presidency is one of the all time great enablers, as i said, he used this word before, said she is not a victim. bill clinton's past is fair
4:52 pm
game. what do you say? >> couple of things. one, i want to go back to the hillary clinton interview, erin, part of it is because my dad called me earlier really upset about the term off the reservation, and i think he is right. i want to quickly address it. sometimes we allow things to slip into the vernacular without being challenged, there's a group of people that are founders of this country, native americans, and we need to be careful with the rhetoric. i don't think she meant anything vicious by it, it is a term thrown around in politics all the time, but worth noting that's not a cool term. when it comes to whether or not she's enabling anyone, including her husband, i think this is ridiculous. it is a way for trump supporters to not deal with the fact that donald trump has lodged some substantial attacks on hillary clinton, talking about her not able to get 5% of the vote if she were a man and her playing the woman card. here's a reality. breaking news, hillary clinton is a woman. that's not her playing a woman's
4:53 pm
card, that's her speaking from her own experience and allowing it to tell a different story in the political process. that's not playing any card whatsoever. rather, donald trump is playing the man card by allowing his privilege and the fact he would become if he were president that looks like every other president that we had in this country from a gender perspective. he's a male. >> the man card, angela, he attacks a lot of people personally, attacked carly fiorina with the face comment, lying ted, little marco, crooked hillary is his latest one. it sounds like he treats everybody the same. >> except for he didn't talk about anybody else's face, like you said, except for carly fiorina. surprise, she's just like hillary clinton from the gender stand point, she's a female. he attacks everyone, but it is different when they're personalized to the point of bringing up someone's gender, saying blood has something coming out of them, someone looks like a pig.
4:54 pm
a rose ee o'donnell thing. it has to do with gender. it goes back to when his attacks become personal, he doesn't know how to segment off what's appropriate and not appropriate. i doubt donald trump 2.0 will be able to do it either. >> jeffrey? >> well, i mean, i think you've got a point. he does this with all his opponents. so i mean, he is quite genderless about this. he's said things about marco rubio's height, about ted cruz's integrity. on and on and on and on this has gone. he's an equal oortunity employer in terms of this, and again frankly i have to say i am so astounded at this, there's a problem with liberals, they assume being a woman or for that matter being black or hispanic or minority is synonymous with being liberal. when you disappoint them as say clarence thomas has done or sarah palin has done, they'll
4:55 pm
really go after you and they don't care. they can be as sexist as they want to be with sarah palin and it is no big deal because she's a conservative. >> thank you both very much. obviously more on this to come, especially as trump's delegate count rises. outfront next, anthony bourdain loves to eat, there's one food he finds an abomination. what is it? living with chronic migraine feels like each day is a game of chance. i wanted to put the odds in my favor. so my doctor told me about botox®, an fda-approved treatment that significantly reduces headache days for adults with chronic migraine, 15 or more headache days a month, each lasting 4 hours or more. it's shown to prevent headaches and migraines before they start. and it's injected by my doctor once every 12 weeks. effects of botox® may spread hours to weeks

deep dish pizza is synonymous with chicago and delicious to some people, but not to anthony bourdain who calls it an abomination. he finds a more surprising slice of culinary deelectability. >> i knew chicago had diverse neighborhoods, but this i didn't know. >> where are we, why are we here. i have to say i'm glad we're here, but what? why? >> we are at shesh wan cuisine. coming back, two like let's go to china town, find those things we eat for breakfast every day. >> pork dumplings and chili oil.
