tv Anderson Cooper 360 CNN September 28, 2016 5:00pm-6:01pm PDT
and thank you so much for skbroing us. don't miss our town hall with president obama tonight at 9:00 ac 360 starts now. >> good esmg. with just eleven days to go donald trump is trying to figure out how to avoid a repeat performance. his aides held a conference called call with supporters and told them if they are going on tv they should refuse to concede that he didn't nail it. trump back on the campaign trail taking swipes at clinton. but even as he continues to claim victory in monday's debate and slam clinton for taking days
off, his lack of preparation showed. now the question will anything change the next time around. phil mattingly tonight. >> reporter: donald trump on the campaign trail sharpening his attack on hillary clinton. >> how many scandals can this country take? one after a another after another. you know the story, folks. you have seen it for years and years. >> the republican nominee trying to regain his footing after a shaky debate performance against the democratic nominee monday night. hillary clinton is an insider, fighting for her donors and her insiders. mostly fighting for herself. and if she ever got the chance she would put the oval office up for sale too and nobody has any doubt about it. >> zpriet repeated claims of victor victory. >> winning by massive margins in many cases. and one was 80% to 20%.
i'm winning all of these polls. how many were there? seven or eight or not. hubs hundreds of thousands of votes and then i have to sit back and you have to sit back and hear how they don't mean anything. trump patting himself on the back going easy on clinton during the debate. >> for 90 minutes i watched her, very carefully. and i was also holding back. i didn't want to do anything to embarrass her. >> trump's son eric is praising his father's approach. >> i think that a took a lot of courage in so many regards and i think, you know, he really answered that well and took the high ground. >> trump's advisors are quietly delivering the message to him that he didn't have a good night and privately expressing frustration that trump missed opportunities to go after clinton because of his belief that he didn't need to rely on traditional debate preparation. but aides are also telling cnn
that trump and some in his inner circle believe his off the cuff impromptu approach is exactly what his supports want. trump also being rewarded with his biggest one day fundraising haul of the entire campaign on tuesday. >> we have the biggest day we've ever had because of the success last night of the debate. they raised almost $18 million. >> phil mattingly reporting. getting new information how displeased donald trump is not by his debate performance but how his allies have been talking about it. gloria what are you hearing from folks in? >> there was a conference call today with team trump and tump surrogates in which team trump made it abundantly clear their candidate was upset with people
who have been talking to the media. and saying that he didn't nail it. >> media. you media people. >> saying he didn't nail it and they want -- and now listen surrogates. he wants a high-energy defense of his debate performance and want this is to stop immediately. we were told that the message was animated. that it wasn't exactly subtle and there is a candidate who's upset about the way this is being treated. not only by people inside the campaign but other people talking about the debate. >> and this notion that you have all been reporting on that he's been gingerly approached by some people around him. where does it say he needs to be gingerly approached, if that is the case. >> there have been three different management teams and there have been one constant and the candidate. the candidate has never wanted to hear negative information from the people around him. so this is not a huge exception. there were a keuchel couple of
people pretty direct with him but most of them were indeed pretty careful. most did not say that was not good. you should have done xyz. it was you did well for this part but then there was xyz that didn't go well. what will be for the next time? he did do prep. it was not convention -- >> do you know what sort of prep it was? not mock debates according to roshting there were efforts to get him to stand at a podium. roger ailes didn't quite work out so they moved it to transfer tower. there was a podium but trump didn't really want to stand on it. so they tried to work within his comfort zone. the problem is that trump has a way of turning things towards the way he wants it to be as opposed to meeting the reality that is out there. they went over lines. and they went over cues that hillary clinton could have about her reactions and in the end he just didn't swing through on almost any of them and chased
literally almost every piece of chum she threw at him. >> is it clear that it is going to be different to you next time? >> well the format is going to be different. he's going to have to engage with real voters and we assume sort of getting off his chair and wandering around. he's much taller than her. and figuring out to what extent he comes into her face. what they overlap. this is new stuff for him. this is a man who prides himself so much on his performance abilities and his abilities to hold an audience but it is much different when you are on a small change, a town hall meeting where you need to be dealing with hillary clinton over here, certain moderators over here. the audience other here. but the big thing i think reported in terms of his own frustration was that he really wanted to bring up benghazi and the clinton family foundation and these sort of targets and he sort of knew that probably lester holt wasn't going bring those things up. so what he needed to do in an
affirmative way was figure a way to bring up the issues within the context of questions -- >> -- choreographed. >> -- d.c. did talk about testifying for 12 hours before a congressional committee. >> -- >> well but that was before the benghazi committee. >> so he had these ways in. but that goes to -- this is a guy whose self confidence so so supreme in terms of improvisati improvisation. but improvization is so different different than the lawyerly case of building what you are saying and have a got. >> and got distracted by people around during the prep. >> at this point it started as a half dozen people at bed minster, his club in new jersey. and then moved to trump tower and grew to almost a dozen people. and rudy giuliani.
chris christie. steve ban. kellyanne conway was the only woman in there i think which is not insignificant since he was facing a female general election opponent. and then the two generals. keith catalog and mike flynn. >> and bobby knight in? >> bobby knight drifted in at some point. reince priebus was there. the rnc chairman. usually debate prep camp for a presidential election is a tightly run closed affair. and this just became sort of a -- >> to that especially it is tightly run and often staff. it is it is people who you have the principle on stage and the staff trying to prepare and give the principal as much advice as possible. you have people like rudy giuliani and chris christie and roger ailes who were at least sort of the early prep is like telling war stories and incredible distractions. what you usually have is a staff member who the candidate is
there to run these on time and make his or her better than when they went in. and in a way i think you saw people as peers kind of sitting around and talking. >> and it was him running it. usually you don't have the candidate running the debate prep. >> the question now is how this changes. and when you are in a town hall it is difficult too attack. donald trump has made it very clear out on the campaign trail since this debate that he's on the attack. jim acosta has gotten talking points that were handed out today. showing for the trump folks, showing that they intend to get very aggressive against hillary clinton on the personal side. on the whole question of bill clinton's infidelities and how she supported him and dealt with monica lewandowski, etc. during that. so if you are going to get more aggressive and that is what the
talking points show in all areas. how do you do that in a town hall setting? >> also for a candidate who doesn't want to give his strategy away on defeating isis. is it good to give your strategy away that you are going to go after secretary clinton on marital infie telt. >> this is the way he thinks he can play mind games with her. he have a lot of tools to work. >> we're watching what is going to be a donald trump vent. he's not net sweeking but we're going to be monitoring that and anything news worthy we'll bring to you. donald trump did not to do himself any favors that repeating this woman a former miss universe had gained a massive amount of weight and it was a quote, problem. also ahead more breaking news. two students and a teacher shot in an elementary school playground in south carolina. a teenager is in custody.

listen here to what he's said. >> six weeks. emmett think of it. i've been out from june 16th. it's been full-time. all the time. you see all the days off that hillary takes? day off. day off. day off. all those day offs and can't even make it to her car. isn't it tough? >> joining me now --. is it wise for donald trump to be continuing on the secretary clinton health issue? do you think that is something that resonates with not just his supporters but with undecided voters out there? >> i do think that video says a lot. and i just think it is sort of immutable at this point. >> stuk in people's minds.
>> yeah i sthoi. and anderson i want to say something about the debates. he's going talk about the money trail and all this sort of thing as they go on. but it is very interesting to me listening to rush limbaugh today and sean hannity in succession. they really did listen in. and about this collusion between the media. when you read this washington post story today saying they went through in detail how the clinton campaign was working behind the scenes to have the story ready go the minute hillary mentioned her name in the debate. i think they have made a huge mistake here because of the things you discovered last night in your conversation with her. and i hate to say this on a family show, pornography, which is now everywhere and very graphic. this is not the kind of person you want a presidential candidate associated with.
they didn't do their due diligence and i think they are going to have a problem with it. >> reporters were talking about a conference call where surrogates were told you got to defend his debate performance that you got do it with energy, that trump himself is upset with perception that he didn't do enough preparation for it. were you on that call? did you get that message? >> i was on the call and it was just a general call like most surrogate calls that are part of a campaign. it was more of folks let's get out there. we have forty days. let's make sure we're doing our best and sticking to the talking points and make shoog that you are we're relatable and having the energy. we have to make sure we are getting outlet there the message. yesterday was amazing day for the trump campaign. a lot of excitement. 18 million dollars and that speaks a lot about the results of the campaign, of the debate. when $18 million of small donorsem saying we support you. that's incredible. and then the large rallies last
night and tonight. that speaks volumes. actually speaks louder than probably the debate results at this point. >> you think it speak -- the $18 million and a couple of rallies speaks larger than the largest debate of the history of the world. >> if you watch the pundits and the read the articles and negativity towards mr. trump after the race especially the coercion that might have happened between the hillary clinton camp. and -- benchmark fundraising day. so obviously the people really don't care necessarily. and they are seeing these attacks by the media on mr. trump and they are viewing them as actually somebody that helps mr. trump and showing he's once here to fight the establishment and the stats quo. >> are you concerned he could do better the next debate? that he could practice and sit down and spend days prepping and how to pivot, how not to, to go after any poking that hillary clinton does? >> let me just say a couple of
things about that. first of all a winning campaign doesn't have their staff throwing their candidate under the bus. that is number one. number two, they have tried to mold donald trump into a traditional republican candidate by feeding him words. by making sure he stays on the teleprompter to stay on message. but every time he's off the teleprompter we see the real donald trump. and we saw that during the debate when yesterday he doubled down on offensive comments, that no one asked him about. he just continued taking the bait and continued to make the offensive comments about miss universe. so they can prep all day but you cannot change a 70-year-old con artist. >> and so let me follow up on that point. and actually now i understand, jeff, that when you have to listen to rush limbaugh and sean hannity in succession why one would create a completely different reality. >> i listen to rush every day.
>> and -- i actually like to be grounded to the real world. what really happens. so let me follow-up with what she just said. the problem is remember, this is donald trump we've seen going back to the primaries. the man who talked about the size of his genitals. things we've never seen a presidential candidate. he's not fit to be president and we see that in the debates. it is not just about preparing strategies and preparing him with talking points. it is that when he starts to talk, let me give him unsolicited vice. he should nover talk about women. he should never talk about race. the birther issue brought up. donald trump could not explain why for years he continued to promote the birther issue. the problem with donald trump is donald trump. and no matter what strategy. in some way i have sympathy for the strategists can the campaign
people. they can't prepare a man who's deranged and not able to control himself in a public -- >> just -- >> i want to get back to the campaign trail today. donald trump was reaching out to bernie sanders supports and i want to replay that. the possibility of that. >> what they did to bernie sanders was unbelievable. and now she's supporting -- he's supporting her. you know what idy although i think a lot of the bernie sanders people are coming to us because i'm much better in trade than bernie sanders even was and he's okay but he's supporting her. and you know, bernie sanders could have gone down not the record books as being a great, great man. but when he made that deal, it was over. >> jonathan --. [ laughter ] -- i don't see you gravitating to jeffrey or scotty. do you think he can actually get some disaffected sanders supporters? >> when you say "some," five or
ten? perhaps. the vast majority and polls are showing, are going to vote for hillary clinton. and here is the reality. and bernie sanders has said this repeatedly. donald trump stands for everything that bernie sanders is opposed. his entire adult life. donald trump -- >> a -- not it. >> -- let me finish. donald trump has promoted birtherism, racism, misogyny. >> -- >> let me iffish. >> we got to go actually. >> here is the thing. you can taunt about that but effects everybody on main street is jobs -- >> -- not true. >> donald trump -- >> -- commercial break. hillary clinton hit the campaign trail today -- guys shut up. with bernie sanders. -- among millennials who are still feeling the bern it only takes a second for an everyday item

major challenges is winning over bernie sanders supporters and stopping them from deporting to third party candidates. brianna keilar reports. >> reporter: hillary clinton tapping bernie sanders star power yet again in new hampshire. >> this election is enormously important for the future of our country. it is imperative that we elect hillary clinton as our next president. >> she's trying to attract young voters who overwhelmingly voted for sanders in the primary. pushing her plan for free public college tuitions for families earning $125,000 or less per year. >> i don't know how we got to where we are. but we are going to fix it. this is wrong. it is wrong for students. wrong for families and wrong for our country. >> the polls show some millennials are looking past clinton.
to third party candidates. the white house is worried it could endanger president obama's legacy. >> and if you vote for someone other than hillary or if you don't vote at all, then you are helping to elect hillary's opponent. >> michelle obama rallying voters in pennsylvania. clinton's rust belt firewall also appearing in a new ad. >> hillary been a president our kids can look up to. >> and taking on trump. >> then of course there are those who questioned and continue to question for the past eight years whether my husband was even born in this country. and let me say, hurtful, deceitful questions, deliberately designed to undermine his presidency. questions that cannot be blamed on others or swept under the rug by an insincere sentence uttered at a press conference. >> reporter: and the clinton campaign continues to get mileage out the story of alicia
machado, the former miss universe. trump is under fire for how he treated her for gaining weight, making no apologies this week. >> she gained a massive a. of weight. and it was a real problem. >> his campaign calls machado's allegations that trump called her miss piggy and miss house keeping because she's latina unsubstantiated but machado, a clinton supporter is standing by her claims. >> he was really rude with me. he tried to destroy my self esteem. and now i'm a voice in the latin community. that is the point. he can say whatever he wants to say. >> brianna keilar, cnn washington. >> let's take a look now more at clinton's millennial map of problem. clinton is struggling with that demographic. want to look at how big of a problem it is.
john king breaks it down. >> anderson we often talk about the battleground states but sometimes we need to go deeper. the battlegrounds within the battlegrounds. hillary clinton today targeting millennials. that is a big concern for the clinton campaign. michelle obama, two stops in pennsylvania on college campuses. philadelphia, pittsburgh, targeting millennials. why? the numbers matter. millennials a key part of the obama coalition. 19% of the vote in pennsylvania. 16% in florida. 16% in north carolina. 19% in virginia. 19% in new hampshire where secretary clinton was today. five of the key battleground state, a millennial vote a key constituency rebuilding the obama coalition. why? look at this. this is voters under 30. millennials technically under 35. but in the 2012 election, 60-37. this was a four-point race national. relatively close.
60-37 among voters under 30. a landslide for president obama. where are we today in 41 days before election 2016? this is a problem for hillary clinton. in the recent bloomberg national poll a 23 point edge for the president back then just 10 for hillary clinton over donald trump in a head to head match up. that is problem for secretary clinton. and if you think that is a problem, here is why it is an even bigger problem. when you bring in the third party candidates they are taking away millennial votes bleeding from the main candidates to the third party candidates and hurts clinton more. a four point edge over donald trump. gary johnson and jill stein gaining combined 19% of the millennial vote. so again you don't have to be very good at math. just a four point edge here, with a 23 point edge there. that is why whether it is whatever it is. the clinton campaign realizes even though it thinks it has
momentum, they know they have a fundamental problem with millennials. a key piece of the obama coalition. when you watch them go to these states, you understand why. >> thanks john. joining me now. former obama senior advisor david axelrod. and jeff weaver former campaign pedigree for bernie sanders. why do you think secretary clinton is having a problem with millennial voters? some say her age but look at bernie sanders, he had huge millennial support. >> she obviously had a problem with them in 2008 as well. you know, i think part of it is presentation i don't think -- she's very cautious in the way she expresses how she tends to talk in terms that are kind of stereotypically political and i think millennials are skeptical about politicians generally a
and -- matters. bernie sanders because the -- candidate. and on the issues that they most care about, inequality, social justice issues. he was a very powerful candidate. i think she has work do. >> jeff, when a campaign makes an obvious effort to shore up support from one demographic or another, does that actually work? or do voters just see through it? particularly millennials seeing through it as what it is? >> well i think that that is a little bit off anderson in this way. i don't think hillary clinton is making something up to tell millennials. she has a powerful story to tell millennials. the plan she and bernie sanders developed in terms of the college affordability i think is very powerful. largely brings in his plan to make public colleges and universities, tuition free. and that was a powerful message he delivered in the primary and
she's now delivering in the general election and i think will be powerful with millennials. i think the problem she's had with millennials is that so far the campaign has focused on the negatives of both candidates. each one pointing out why the other is bad. and i think for millennials who are suspect of sort of politicians as david said. they really want to hear more about what you are going to do as opposed to why your opponent is bad. and i think given the debate we just had and now this big vent in new hampshire where hillary clinton is going start talking about really her revolutionary plan for college education. i think this is the beginning of a turning point where she's going to start winning back the millennial votes. >> i do want to say she took strides forward in the debate on monday. her discussion of inequality and tax fairness on social justice issues and issues of race. i think those answers resonated with millennials and i think some of donald trump's behavior did not.
his behavior towards her, certainly the story about alicia machado did not score well among these millennials. so i think she made some steps forward in that debate. >> i want to talk about this third party candidates. and libertarian candidate gary johnson is taking some of the vote. i want to play something that happened a short time ago at an nbc town hall and get your reactions. >> -- a foreign leader that you respect. >> i guess i'm having an aleppo moment in the former president of mexico. >> but i'm giving you do whole world. >> i know, i know. >> anybody. anybody that you like. >> the former president of mexico. >> which one? >> i'm having a brain -- >> well name anybody. >> who's your favorite -- >> name a foreign leader -- >> terrific. >> any foreign leader. >> merkel. >> okay. merkel. fine. can't argue with that. >> something like that. he's had a number of those
moments. >> well, you know, first of all i think he was probably referring to the president caldrone. but what's surprising about that is he was the governor of new mexico, large hispanic population. the fact he couldn't come up with is really odd. the fact is the libertarian party doesn't much interest itself in global affairs. and it shows in his inability -- he doesn't seem to show much interest in it. i do think that one of the things that has to happen is that people need to focus on who these candidates are. but also that the choice is binary. >> jeff, very briefly, president obama saying today look a vote for a third party candidate is a vote for trump. is that something you think bernie sanders is going to start to tell support sners because he hasn't so far. >> i think he has said if anybody wants to see progress in this country -- binary. one of two candidates is going to be phosphate united states.
either hillary clinton is going to be president. or donald trump is going to be president. if you don't want donald trump to be president, you have to vote for hillary clinton. that is the sort of choice that we're presented here. bernie sanders in the primary obviously garnered a lot of support from millennials. but he's not going to be there. he came in second in the primaries. i think millennial, johnson, you know, behind that problem he had with chris mathews. on college education, libertarians don't have anything to say. if you have trouble paying for college education a libertarian is going to say well that's too bad. >> just ahead. donald trump has not backed off his comments about the former miss universe alicia machado. the question, will it cost him votes? and coming up also at the top of the hour. cnn presidential town hall, p
president obama taking questions in fort lee virginia. yes. you know, that reminds me of geico's 97% customer satisfaction rating. 97%? helped by geico's fast and friendly claims service. huh... oh yeah, baby. geico's as fast and friendly as it gets. woo! geico. expect great savings and a whole lot more.
but my back pain was making it hard to sleep and open up on time. then i found aleve pm. the only one to combine a safe sleep aid plus the 12 hour pain relieving strength of aleve. now i'm back. aleve pm for a better am. now that fedex has helped us we could focus on bigger issues, like our passive aggressive environment. we're not passive aggressive. hey, hey, hey, there are no bad suggestions here... no matter how lame they are. well said, ann. i've always admired how you just say what's in your head, without thinking. very brave. good point ted. you're living proof that looks aren't everything. thank you. welcome. so, fedex helped simplify our e-commerce business and this is not a passive aggressive environment. i just wanted to say, you guys are doing a great job. what's that supposed to mean? fedex. helping small business simplify e-commerce.
guests before. i was kind of rude to them. they were talking over each other and i was rude in asking people to be quiet. so i want to apologize to our guests and anybody at home who may have been offended. last night i talked to alicia machado, former miss universe who landed in the spotlight on monday. and i asked what donald trump said and did when she gained weight after winning the title twenty years ago when he was co-own ore of the pageant. take a listen. >> the trump campaign is dee nigh he called you miss piggy or miss housekeeping. you're saying point-blank hi said that to you face. >> yeah. all the time. he was really aggressive. really really rude. it was a bad person with me. >> back in 1997 trump talked publicly about machado's weight with radio host howard state's
attorney. >> she gained -- >> how -- >> what does a girl eat. >> she must never stop. >> she ate a lot of everything. >> trump also discussed m eed m machado's weight in "newsweek." and we tried everything. forget it. the way she's going she'd teat whole gymnasium. >> the question was straightforward. the answer, not so much. listen to donald trump's suggestion on debate night about who might be to blame for the hacking and security breech at the dnc. >> it could be russia but it could also be china. it could be lots of other people. it could also be someone sitting on their bed who weighs 400 pounds. oka okay? >> where he came one this vision is anyone's guess but it is not the same time he's used a 400 pound fictional character.
in an interview trump said you can go ahead and speak to guys who have 400 pound wives at home who are jealous of me. but the guys who really know me know i'm a great bimd builder. >> and rosie o'donnell's the feud. >> she came to my wedding. she ate like a pig. seriously, the wedding cake, it was like missing in action. >> and trump boldly mocked -- >> -- they would say wow, i don't want to go out with her. >> and trump doesn't just focus on what he considers fat women. men are targets too. listen to how he responded to a male protester at one of his rallies last year. >> you know, it is amazing. i mentioned food stamps and that guy who's seriously overweight went crazy. he went crazy. >> it's not just rivals who might get called out. it is allies too. like new jersey governor chris
christie. trump poking fun at his pudginess when lamenting about nabisco's decision to move to mexico. after trump declared he no longer was going to eat oreos he couldn't stop himself. >> no more oreos for either of us. >> what makes trump's attacks on people all the more curious is trump himself is medically speaking overweight. his long time doctor says he weighs 236 pounds. he recently said this to dr. oz. >> the one thing i would like to do is be able to drop 15-20 pounds. it would be good. >> at 6'3", trump is on the high end of overweight. inching towards obesity. so he may want to tweak that exercise regimen of his. randy kay, cnn new york. >> gloria borzier and --.
i don't know there has ever been a presidential candidate who has discussed weight or other people's weight quite so much. >> no. and i think it probably comes from being a reality tv star. this is somebody who's used to saying you're fired on television. can tell people why he didn't like them and why he didn't do their job well and i think he's kind of uncensored and unfiltered and, you know, he's been a guest on howard stern over the last 20 years or so. >> and he'd say these things when he wasn't running for president. he said it as a private businessman, entertainer. >> but he also keeps saying it as the presidential candidate. the machado issue he talked about it again the following morning after the debate during the exchange with clinton said where did you get that at times to me seemed to raise questions whether he had actually said it and the next morning he went on tv. and so i think the issue is that
we've never had a presidential candidate who personalizes a criticism of other people of sort of imaginary voters like the 400 pound man he imagined as a hacker sitting on his bed. there is on the one hand for people who find that appealing they think that he is talking the way normal people talk. but trump has existed in something of a consequence-free environment for a long time. and this is just a different environment. >> and david -- you know, he did talk about carly fiorina's face. he talked about rand paul's appearance as well. among others. president obama was on the steve harvey show today. i want to read what he said. trump talked about the women's weight and how they look. this is not the conversation the trump campaign wants people to be having forty plus days out from the election. >> certainly not.
this is like conducting a campaign in a locker room and having all the banter of people and it is sort of totally out of step with the times and i think women do take offense at this in ways that maybe 20 years ago when he was saying some of the early things they didn't but they do today and so do men. and it is striking in this new nbc poll we have tonight that when watching the debate 27% of women said their attitudes or their opinion of trump went down. went negative as a result of the debate. only 11% said positive. and with hillary clinton it was just the reverse. more than twice as many women said their opinion went up as went down. so it could well be having a cutting effect. >> when during the debate he talked about stamina. and he talked about hillary clinton not having the stamina, that is a code word to women. >> and the look by the way. >> and the look, of course. that the stamina is a code word for being weak. and women hear that and she had just pretty much pounded him for
an hour -- >> it is also interesting. and i don't know if it is true or not whether donald trump believes the message he need to at the next debate is go tougher on hillary clinton on the former president's marital infidelities. >> i think that is a real open question whether he's actually going to execute that strategy. her campaign said he tweeted about jennifer flowers on saturday and than oh just kidding. his campaign put out word we're going to be doing new line of attack. tune in to the rally and then turned out to be something about the clinton foundation so i'm skeptical but we'll see. >> we'll see indeed. gloria borger. up next. outside a south carolina elementary school. police say a teenager opened fired shooting two students and a teacher. details next
breaking news, a teenager in custody in south carolina after he allegedly shot and killed his father and then shot two children and a teacher at an elementary school play ground. what do we know about what happened? >> anderson, this teacher and the two boys were shot outside the school on the play ground. that teacher shot in the shoulder. one boy shot in the leg.
