1:00 pm
you'll receive a message confirming we received it. >> this is great, yes. >> being recognized as a cnn hero helps a person you admire continue their life changing work, but it all starts with you. nominate someone deserving today. [ applause ] top of the hour, thank you for rolling with us. we are live in the cnn newsroom. this weekend, all political eyes on the biggest primary prize, california. primary day is june 7. the latest polling puts the two democrats, hillary clinton and bernie sanders virtually tied for that state's mother load of delegates. no public events scheduled for clinton today, but sands has been busy wrapping up a rally in santa barbara and another within the hour. he says his number one priority right now is to send donald
1:01 pm
trump home. >> what is most important in my mind is that we have the strongest democratic candidate there who, in fact, not only defeats mr. trump, but will demolish mr. trump. >> all right, dan is live in santa barbara. dan, bernie sanders is really eager to debate donald trump. >> reporter: he certainly is, and the crowd just ate that up. we'll talk about that in a second, but bernie sanders doesn't seem to care whatsoever that hillary clinton has what appears to be an insurmuntable lead with the delegate math. he's campaigning hard in california. he had the event in santa barbara city college, more today, and polls showing this is virtually dead heat. that is why bernie sanders is going hard at hillary clinton. the line that seemed to draw the most applause today had to be when he talked about this debate with donald trump.
1:02 pm
as you know, bernie sanders proposed debating trump. he was open to it, and then changed his mind. this is what he said, take a look. >> donald trump initially said, yes, then he said, no, and then he said yes, then he said no, so i think for a guy who changes his position so many times, i would hope he'd change it one more time and say yes. [ cheers and applause ] >> well, if sanders can somehow pull out a win in california, it will certainly strengthen his argument that the super delegates should come over to his side. of course, that is a farfetched scenario. the more likely scenario is that it will give him leverage when it comes to the party platform in philadelphia this summer. >> dan, i know you covered that issue of drafting california
1:03 pm
since you were there in san francisco. it's quite the state, as we know , and trump said he'll end the drought. are people there buying it, or what is his proposal to do this? >> reporter: well, his proposal really is not clear, and you're right, we're in the middle of the five-year drought. we had a wet winter that helped things. more of the reservoirs have water. the snow pack in the sierra which is crucial for the water supply in california is much better than it was, and in terms of what trump is saying? basically, he's saying the state is too environmentally conscious, that we are protecting the fish, and if he's president, that would stop. as for whether or not people buy it, it depends if you're a trump supporter. if you're not, chances are you don't agree with that sentiment. >> all right, dan simon reporting in california where sanders is starting another event in the next hour. our thanks to you.
1:04 pm
total of 546 delegates are up for grabs in california in the primary, and as it stands now, hillary clinton needs fewer than 100 delegates to clench the nomination. we have two commentators joining us now. ryan, starting with you, we mentioned the poll, and very, very tight race right now between sanders and hillary clinton, and that poll found the majority of californians are pretty unhappy with their choices for president on both sides of the aisle. can any of the candidates turn that perception around? >> i think it's going to be tough for the two most likely nominees to donald trump and hillary clinton. they have historically high negatives. tru trump's are the highest of any presidential nominee, and really tough if you've been in politics as long as hillary clinton has to change people's minds about who you are. you know, she has a very low ceiling and a relatively high floor, and i think she's operated in that narrow space
1:05 pm
for many years, and i think that's one of the reasons some of the general election polls show sanders doing better against trump is sanders is not as well-defined. people read into him. people who do not know him well read into him what thigh like. i think on the sanders versus clinton map, i think sanders could win the state and send clinton limping to the finish line. i don't see the scenario by which he wins, but it makes it tough for her to sorpt of tie this up. >> is that doing damage for the party, mark? >> well, it depends on how you understand damage. if the goal is to put a progressive agenda socially economically et cetera on the table, it's not doing the party damage. voters have the opportunity to vote for whom they want, and if they choose sanders this late in the game knowing hillary clinton is the likely nominee, that's a message to trump and the gop, but more importantly, sending a
1:06 pm
message to dnc and hillary clinton. it's not damage, but it's necessary work. does that weaken hillary clinton going in the general election? absolutely. sanders is eyes wide open about that and make a decision how to engage her in the convention and on the convention floor. >> i just talked to bob dole cnn live. he has some information. >> someone like newt gingrich and none of us are perfect, but newt gingrich i think is a good fit for trump because he can help him in all those areas, and then trump has to listen. you know, you got to have some people you trust if you're the candidate, that you can confide in and they can tell you, donald, you're making a mistake, you shouldn't do this.
1:07 pm
>> so he is a big newt gingrich fan for the trump ticket. ryan, your reaction? >> my reaction is if newt gi gingrich was the running mate, that's a "back to the future" from the 1990s. you have hillary clinton and trump, and gingrich. this would be an election not from the future. i'm puzzled why dole is saying that to be honest. gingrich is not a particularly popular figure in american politics. most politicians are unpopular right now. let's be honest. it's hard to get above 50% for anyone nationally, but he's not someone who brings a lot to the ticket. the one criteria he satisfies is trumpments a washington insider, someone who knows congress, knows the hill, and i suppose gingrich zpsatisfies that.
1:08 pm
otherwise, i find it very, very puzzling. i don't see a lot of other republicans hinting gingrich fif fits the bill and the trump ticket. >> dole talked about the minority groups that trump needs to reach, and newt gingrich doesn't necessarily seem to be a fit for reaching those groups, does he, marc? >> never been his strong suit. >> saying you have a ban on m muslims and building a wall, so i don't know that the vice presidential choice makes a difference one way or another. he says he's not picking a person of color or a woman because those things are -- as if building a wall and banning muslims is not banter, but he says he's going to choose a white man. gingrich is a solid choice to me because he's very smart. trump needs someone who knows things on his ticket.
1:09 pm
he is someone who is a washington insider, but significant legislative influen influence, and lastly to ryan's point, it harkens to the 1990s when newt just beat up the clintons. that's the only way he gets republicans back on board. >> let's listen to what bob dole said about hillary clinton as well and the challenges she has to overcome. >> she's been allowed, what, 30 years, i don't know, but a long time, and bill clinton who would be a great asset has had this health problem and doesn't look strong and robust like he has been in the past, and that affects his voice. he's not going to be able to go out there as fire and brimstone he would have had earlier. >> so is bill clinton an asset or liability to hillary clinton?
1:10 pm
ryan? >> you know, we were talking a second ago about what political figures actually maintain popularity gna tity nationally, clinton is one of the few with an approval rating up above 50%. hillary clinton doesn't. trump doesn't. most of the politicians who have been on the scene for a while don't. barack does, bill clinton does. so just using that metric alone, you'd have to say he's more of an asset than a liability. you know, doe and clinton have app interesting relationship. of course, bill clinton beat dole in 1996, but after that, as clinton does with a lot of the people he defeats, they developed a kind of close relationship just the way they did with the bush's, and his criticism of clintons in the clip played there was tepid compared to what trump said recently. >> but, marc, i wonder if bill clinton is having the kind of
1:11 pm
effect given his popularity given his respect, getting people excited about hillary clinton's potential presidency? >> i worry because bill clinton is such a contrast to hillary clinton in terms of personality, engagement, modes of addressing the voting basis, in fact rs what voters see is not excited about hillary clinton, but they realize what they are not getting with hillary clinton. we had this guy, and now we don't. i'm not saying that's fair to hillary clinton, but that could be the game we see. bill clinton's the only popular person in the country between trump and hillary clinton right now. i think it could ultimately be a disservice, but her alternatives, no choice but to have bill clinton on the stump to galvanize and bring out big crowds and be the attack dog against trump she needs. >> marc, ryan, thank you so much for joining us. >> pleasure. coming in, libertarian dream ticket seen by some as a possible third party spoiler could be in jeopardy. live to the party's conference

1:15 pm
so as we widdle down when is running for president of the united states, let's not forget the chance for a third party spoiler. right now in orlando, florida, a libertarian party is gathering to pick their presidential and their vice presidential choices this weekend. this is a gathering that goes unnoticed, but not this time around. nope. this is a different kind of election. phil is at the libertarian convention in orlando, so, phil, a lot of talk about a possible gary johnson and bill wells ticket, even though they are selected separately. what's going down there right now? >> reporter: a dream tickets of sorts, right? two two-term republican governors dedicated to the libertarian cause if they can
1:16 pm
only get the nomination. johnson looks likely to secure the nomination for president, peterson, a competitor, speaking behind me right now. there's problems here. they do not strike the cord with the libertarian faithful at this convention right now, looking at what he's bringing to the table and record in massachusetts, even how he's spoken to delegates behind the scenes here. he was booed and jeered in a debate last night. we talked to advisers to gary johnson, more than 20 people working to get delegates on his behalf. there's work too hard. there's responsibility the dream ticket doesn't make it out of the convention. >> to be expected. a lot of people are saying the libertarian could be a spoiler, the libertarian party in this year's general election. we know that whoever is on that libertarian ticket will be on
1:17 pm
the ballot in all 50 states. is this all because of the high unfavorables that perhaps libertarians are more hopeful this time around? >> reporter: historical high unfavorables for hillary clinton and donald trump. look at the people who want a third option, more than 40% in several pops in a row want to volt for someone rather than trump and hillary clinton. there's a probably sense at the convention right now. 900 delegates, 200 media representatives are here. people are paying tension. johnson has a 10% voting favor, and if he gets to 15%, he could be on the debate stage. >> the only chance of winning is to be in the presidential debates, to be in the presidential debates, you got to be in the polls. look, just put us in the polls. i think by putting us in the polls, there's attention drawn to what it is that we're saying,
1:18 pm
and you know what? if that happens, anything's possible. >> anything's possible, but if you talk to people here, no one expects a victory in november, but as you pointed out, a spoiler. just look at past elections, ralra ralph nader in 2000, and ross perot, if they lock it up, it's a huge number in what it expected a close election. there's a lot of thought going on here about the impact they could have. if not winning, they are trying to fold a policy discussion one way or another. the key there? getting on the debate stage. for gary johnson, that means winning nomination here, and hopefully if he has his way, wells coming with him as a vice presidential nomination. >> quickly, bill, you hear the energy in the room behind you there. they are fired up. he said in the sound bite played, in order to get in the debates, he has to get in the polls. how does he get in the polls? >> reporter: attention, and i
1:19 pm
think that's why this matters so much, and when you talk to his team, gary johnson, the idea of having bill wells on the ticket is important. it's a two-term governor that's a big time ticket and realtime possibility. people take it seriously. we take it seriously. those are crucial components of the surveys going out including his name, that's what matters. he has to be at 15% in five polls to qualify. to get that, he needs attention. it's very important for them going forward. that's why bill is what they want. >> all right, phil, thank you for the play-by-play. appreciate it. after months of blasting trump on the campaign trail, rubio faces a tough decision. will he back this man who mocked him as little marco and help trump in his quest to now win the white house? there's no one road out there. no one surface... no one speed... no one way of driving on each and every road.

1:23 pm
a few months ago, senator rubio thought there was a chance he'd end up in the white house, but not only today is he watching trump clenching the nomination he wanted, but he's walking from the senate seat saying he has no intention to run for re-election. in an exclusive interview with cnn, rubio is talking about all of it, including whether he will be at the gop convention and if
1:24 pm
he's willing to fully support his bitter rival, donald trump. jake tapper sat down with rubio and sits down now with the on one-on-one. >> reporter: he was unsure whether or not he'd even attend the republican national convention in cleveland this july. he earned 167 delegates during the primaries earlier this year. he still holds them until he officially releases them. in an interview with cnn, he tells me his plans for cleveland. >> you did not know if you'd attend the republican convention in cleveland. do you have a decision? >> my sense is i'll go to the convention. i don't know that i'll have a role in the convention, but people going there who were supporters. >> if trump asked you to speak, you would do so? >> yes. i want to be helpful, not harmful. i don't of the hillary clinton
1:25 pm
to be president. my policy differences with trump, i spent a lot of months talking about them. that's well understood. that said, i don't want to be -- i don't want hillary clinton to be president. if there's something i can do to help from that happening and helpful to the cause, i'm honored to be considered for that. >> releasing your delegates? >> i technically have already, and the point will be relevant. if we have not done so already, we will. >> rubio not mincing words despite misgivings about policy and politics and trump's temperament, but he'll stand with the party this fall, perhaps with an eye on hitz own future within the gop. >> thanks, jay. don't miss the entire interview on "state of the union" tomorrow morning at 9:00 on cnn. imagine a bacteria that kills every other person it infects. what if i said it exists, and it's here in the united states.
1:26 pm
there's effectively no antibiotic that stops it. we'll talk about this super bug that's now terrifying medical experts next. (war drums beating) fight heartburn fast. with tums chewy delights. the mouthwatering soft chew that goes to work in seconds to conquer heartburn fast. tum tum tum tum. chewy delights. only from tums. people are taking charge of their type 2 diabetes with non-insulin victoza®.
1:27 pm
for a while, i took a pill to lower my blood sugar. but it didn't get me to my goal. so i asked my doctor about victoza®. he said victoza® works differently than pills. and comes in a pen. victoza® is proven to lower blood sugar and a1c. it's taken once a day, any time. victoza® is not for weight loss, but it may help you lose some weight. victoza® works with your body to lower blood sugar in 3 ways: in the stomach, the liver, and the pancreas. vo: victoza® is an injectable prescription medicine that may improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes when used with diet and exercise. it is not recommended as the first medication to treat diabetes and should not be used in people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. victoza® has not been studied with mealtime insulin. victoza® is not insulin. do not take victoza® if you have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer, multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2,
1:28 pm
or if you are allergic to victoza® or any of its ingredients. symptoms of a serious allergic reaction may include itching, rash, or difficulty breathing. tell your doctor if you get a lump or swelling in your neck. serious side effects may happen in people who take victoza®, including inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis). stop taking victoza® and call your doctor right away if you have signs of pancreatitis such as severe pain that will not go away in your abdomen or from your abdomen to your back, with or without vomiting. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take and if you have any medical conditions. taking victoza® with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. the most common side effects are headache, nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting. side effects can lead to dehydration, which may cause kidney problems. if your pill isn't giving you the control you need ask your doctor about non-insulin victoza®. it's covered by most health plans.
1:29 pm
an incurable super bug arrived in the u.s., a moment doctors dreaded for years, a nightmare bacteria. the problem? no existing antibiotic can treat the bug. here's what we know about the first u.s. patient, a 49-year-old woman from pennsylvania. she's not traveled outside the u.s. in the past five months. the bacteria was found in her europe, and doctors have no idea how she got infected. they are tracing contacts to see if the bacteria spread. we know you have questions about the super bug. we asked you to tweet us, and now we're going to get you answers. let's bring in our cnn medical
1:30 pm
analyst, a public health professor of the university of texas. all right. to our first viewer question, doctor. this is from ann who asks, is it just a matter of time before the spread? what can the average person do to stop this? >> sadly, yes. it is just a matter of time. as a matter of fact, this super bug seen in america for the first time ever was discovered last year by chinese researchers. they found it in a hospital patient. they found it, and since then, it's traveled to the u.k., europe, and malaysia as well. it's no surprise it's here in america, and it only was a matter of time before it just continues to spread. the second part of the question, though, is really important. what can we do now to try to stop this? the point here, i mean, in is a tricky one. we have have been reckless in how we use antibiotics, and now we have to be careful how and when we use them, and really ask ourselves, should i use them in this particular case? >> all right. on to question number two, from another viewer from roger who asks, what happened to other
1:31 pm
bugs that in the past have resisted antibiotics? is a cure eventually found or do they just die out? >> they can do really well for themselves. they are outsmarting the drugs that we have. it's a great question by roger. what happens is these bugs continue to evolve and trying to evade whatever we put in front of them. sometimes they die out, sometimes they get stronger. that's why we've seen in the last year 23,000 americans died because they have an infection that we as doctors have nothing left to treat them with, and true, many americans get sick with infections that, again, we've run out of drugs that we can use against the bugs. >> what you're saying is not reassuring, doctor. we have more questions from a third viewer with a three-part question from jason george, i'll break it down. starting with, what are the symptoms of a resistant infection? >> great question, and the tricky part, again, often times
1:32 pm
symptoms are not different to if the bug was a regular bug. this example from pennsylvania is a good one because this woman has the regular symptoms you get with a europe infection that many woman have, abdominal pain, things like that. what's interesting in this case, that, hey, a military facility, that's how we now there's a mutati mutation. could have been like many other parents, an invex, you never test to see what bug it was over whether there was resistance there. as we start looking for more of this, we'll find more of this. >> same viewer asked, when do you call the doctor? >> doctors might be part of the problem, and, you know, i'm honest here, i'm a doctor as well, we might be to blame because we're negligent in prescribing antibiotics. we had them since the 1940s, not even a hundred years, and already, we scratched many off the list of what we can use. it's partly the doctors' responsibility, overprescribing,
1:33 pm
sometimes it's the parties' fault for not taking them as prescribed, and agriculture has a part to play as all the antibiotics every year, 18% are used in animals or agriculture. all these bits going on, is that what makes this is challenging problem to fight. >> you talked about antibiotics and their role. is antibacteria soap recommended, he asks? >> some say that might be making this problem worse. that we keep exposing bacteria to small doses of things when they are not good for them, but when exposed to small doses, it does not kill them, but they get used to it. they mutate and say, well, what can i develop? what mutate can i evolve that helps me get away from this anti bacterial soap or antibiotic in the future. it's those things that are making the problem worse than it already is. >> doctor, thanks for helping to clear up the fact and fiction. hopefully, we can put your words into action.
1:34 pm
thanks so much. >> thanks. back to politics now. while the republican race is settled, donald trump, the presumetive nominee, well, the democrats battle bitterly. the divide between political parties shifting. discussing the role reversal? presidential campaigns next here in the cnn newsroom, stay with us. this dancer was not stopped from living a dream in the spotlight. >> when i dance, i feel like i'm flying. >> terry's drive and determination came from her biggest cheer leaders, his parents and brothers. >> my family never treated me different. i just happened to have to wear braces, walk on crutches, and go to physical therapy a lot. >> she endured more than 15 operations growing up. >> the last one put me in a wheelchair full-time. >> pursuing a career in the arts
1:35 pm
despite her new reality and the nay sayers. >> the directors and producers said, sorry, we can't use you. >> so she started her own theater company. >> i was one of the founding members of family, which is a physically disabled acting troupe. >> that's not all. she inspires others with disabilities by winning ms. wheelchair colorado and competing in ballroom dancing throughout europe. her latest project is a nonprofit dance company called spoke in motion proving possibilities are endless. >> see the person, but if all you see when you look at me is the wheelchair, you have no idea who i am. >> cnn reporting. a cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming and complicated.
1:36 pm
that's why at cancer treatment centers of america every patient gets their own care manager to coordinate every aspect of their care. the care manager is making sure everything is flowing well so the patient can continue to get their treatment. we are the link between the patient and the doctor. the care manager coordinates all of the patient's appointments, scans, chemotherapy... we can do paperwork or contact their employers or set them up with home health. that's what brings most people into nursing; you get to connect with people. that's what i love about being a care manager. meet the care managers at ctca. my name is collette... lindsey jodi stacy our nurse care managers are with you every step of the way so you can focus on your fight. cancer is a long journey and i want to do everything in my power to take the stress off of your shoulders so you can enjoy your life at home. learn more at cancercenter.com/caremanager appointments available now.

truecar has pricing data on every make and model, so all you have to do is search for the car you want, there it is. now you're an expert in less than a minute. this is truecar. i'm getting dark chocolate and a hint of butterscotch. how about you? i taste - whaaaaaaaaaow. wha wha na na na na na na da ba da ba da ba daw! it's good. no doubt you've noticed there's been a role reversal in the race for the white house. historians point it out in an opinion piece for cnn writing this. when it seemed the election could not get krizier, it has. a month ago, the democrats sitting pretty, republicans in disarray. now it's the democrats struggling. the professor of history of public affairs at princeton
1:40 pm
university joining me now. all right, how did we get to this point? >> seems on the republican side the tensions have been much weaker in some ways than were expected. the no trump movement has proven to be pretty thin, and many republicans are responding to the electoral wins. >> politicians being politics. >> in part. a lot with trump is about his personality more than just his policies, and so i think people are settling in. whereas i think on the democratic side, you have a debate over principle. i think that's what is driving this sanders campaign. there's a lot of democrats who are not willing to concede so quickly. >> in part, do you think it's because hillary clinton made mistakes? >> it is an aspect of it. ultimately, a lot of this depends on the strength of the leading nominee. she's made a series of mistakes, a and she's not figured out how to bring it to an end, and, obviously, the report on the e-mail comes at a bad time, but
1:41 pm
it's also i think something deeper. i think it's an argument about what the democratic party should be so sanders' supporters want to carry it right into the convention. >> eaand he's, in part, hoping do that by a number of ways, including reversing super delegates who already committed support to hillary clinton, but he just, today, new information, has now asked for a couple of people platform committee members to be removed from the convention putting out this press release. i want to read a part of it. it says in a formal challenge, sanders' campaign friday asked for the ouster of two aggressive surrogates for hillary clinton from democratic national convention committee. is this smart strategy? >> for leverage what happens in the convention and what hillary clinton does in the fall campaign. the issues she talks about and
1:42 pm
who surrounds her. he's raising questions about the legitimacy, and the convention is loaded against everyone and everything i stood for so that's a danger for her because she doesn't want to allow this competition to undermine the perception that she is legitimate victor mon democrats. >> speaking with bob dole today, and, of course, 1996, gop presidential nominee. i asked what he thinks about the clintons possibly going back to the white house. let's listen to what he said. >> i think hillary clinton has a lot of baggage. and while she doesn't admit it, it's there, and i think that's another problem for hillary clinton because she's advertising that bill clinton will be in charge of the economy, and the economy is the number one problem if you really get down to it in the united states, and people want jobs. they want to find a good paying
1:43 pm
job, and that would help trump with women, of course, everyone, latinos, whoever might not feel kindly towards him now, but i don't think you can have a shared presidency even though you trust your wife and i assume she trusts him. >> he seems to suggest that bill clinton would be a liability for hillary clinton than an asset. >> start by saying trump has just as much baggage, so that's part of the dynamic of the campaign, enough to fill 30 airplanes, so it's going to affect both sides, but i think there's an element of truth. ultimately, everyone's still waiting for hillary clinton to tell voters exactly what she's about, what her vision is, how to guide americans through an economy that's strong, but troubling. i don't think she can say i will have this person, this person, and this person including her husband take care of it, but

it's sparking outrage and controversy. no, it's not a political attack. this is a laundry commercial. some call it the most racist ad ever. matt rivers shows us why. >> reporter: well, this advertisement has created quite the storm in china with many people on line calling the
1:49 pm
commercial for a type of laundry detergent unequivocally racist, and once you see it, it's not hard to see why. the ad features a chinese woman and a black man flirting. he strides over to her, and when he leans in for a kiss, she pops a capsule in his mouth and throws him in the machine. waits, e opens it, and a smiling chinese man pops out to the woman's delight. it's incredibly offensive and sparked backlash. one user wrote, quote, my god, don't chinese marketing pashlgting people get any education about race? another, if you don't understand why it's racist, congratulations, you're a racist. the ad appears to be a blatant ripoff of a similarly criticized italian laundry commercial from the 2000s, he's washed with

1:51 pm
it can't see the racial dimensions of this. >> the detergent company gets attention for the ad. do you think that's maybe part of why they did that? >> perhaps. some people believe that no publicity is bad, but i think when you begin an international boycott and people just really strongly critiquing the product in full public view, it may be bad publicity for them. i don't think they anticipated the type of response globally they got, but it's digital social media. you can't have an ad like this and not expect extraordinary backlash, and that's what they are seeing now. >> an ad like this would not fly in the u.s. what's that say about the racial divide in china? >> in the u.s., we had very, very racist ads for soft drinks to ads in the '80s when decaucus ran against george w. bush. there is a racial divide in china, and many people don't

recognize that african people, black people are everywhere. there's black people in china right now in the southern region who deal with anti-black racism. an ad like this is not just a product of people not knowing about black people or china in its own bubble, but a reaction to racism in the country. white supremacy is ubiquitous in this world. >> thank you for talking about it. >> pleasure. this story, who is not curious to see where the president and his family live after days in the white house? we learned the family leased a swanky washington, d.c. home, and we're going to take you inside it next. plus, coming up at the top of the hour, a cnn exclusive. hear from former presidential nominee, bob doe, and who he thinks trump's running mate should be. >> caller: one like newt gingrich and, you know, none of
