tv   CNN Newsroom With Fredricka Whitfield  CNN  October 16, 2016 11:00am-12:01pm PDT

11:00 am
in fact, much will be built by the uae company that developed. the project critics point out that this kind of money proposed for the new city could go a long way of solving the actual problems of cairo. thanks to all of you for being part of my program this week. i will see you next week. hello, everyone. thank you for joining me. i'm fredricka whitfield. just 22 days away until election day. two new major polls showing clinton in the lead and abc news/"washington post" poll shows hillary clinton four points ahead of donald trump and an nbc/"wall street journal" poll shows clinton with an 11-point advantage. both polls were taken after that leaked tape of trump bragging about grabbing women, begging the question, how is that affecting the race. we'll be discussing that this hour. donald trump continues to beat his drum of fear declaring
11:01 am
this election rigged, dishonest and saying the media is distorted. >> the election is being rigged by corrupt media pushing false allegations and outright lies in an effort to elect hillary clinton president. but we are going to stop it. we are not going to back down. >> those comments just as a ninth woman now has stepped forward accusing trump of sexual assault. saying he grabbed her and kissed her at his mar-a-lago estate. the clinton campaign has its own controversy to deal with ahead of wednesday night's debate. wikileaks has hacked and released what appears to be transcripts of clinton's paid speeches to goldman sachs. both candidates are off the trail and preparing for the debate today. but their surrogates are speaking out. this morning on cnn "state of
11:02 am
the union" former new york city mayor and top trump adviser rudy giuliani responded to the rigged election comments. >> i mean, i think you would agree with the premise that our form of government has been strong because politicians accept the outcome of elections especially, the most notable example with then vice president al gore conceding after the very intense florida recount. i want you to take a look at what a trump supporter told "the boston globe." if she's in office, i hope we can start a coup. she should be in prison or shot. he's a 50-year-old contractor. there's going to be a lot of bloodshed, but that's what it is going to take. i would do whatever i can for my country. there are a lot of republican officials who are very concerned about donald trump constantly saying that the system is rigged. saying that if he loses the state such as pennsylvania only because it will be stolen and now we have a trump supporter calling for bloodshed. are you not concerned at all about the tone and tenor of
11:03 am
these remarks? >> i have, i have dealt with whacky jerks on my side and against me for too long to blame it on the candidate. you can find just as many whacko nuts on her side that write horrible and awful things. so, when he talks about a rigged election, he's not talking about the fact that it is going to be rigged at the polls. what he's talking about is that 80%, 85% of the media is against him. when you look at "the new york times" and pick it up every morning on top of the paper there are three stories that are anti-trump. some of them totally baseless and some of them silly. at the bottom you get something about wikileaks and same thing with "washington post." "the daily news" clown outfits of donald trump. >> mayor, i understand that -- >> and you know that. please, let me finish. you let nancy pelosi go on for two or three minutes without interrupting her. now, the reality is that he makes it clear.
11:04 am
he points right at you, at the press. he makes it clear who he thinks is rigging -- >> then why does he go to polling places to the election monitors. he says if i lose pennsylvania it is because it was stolen. >> there are, there are a few places, not many in the swing states, there are a few places where they've been notorious for stealing votes. pennsylvania, chicago, places where a lot of cheating has gone on over the years. i know that from my own knowledge of bussing people in from camden. when i ran for mayor of new york city the first time, some people voted eight and ten times and the second time i had firefighters and police officers outside checking on the buses so we take down the number of the bus, the bus they voted ten times and then we wouldn't let the bus vote, again. when i asked randy lavigne who
11:05 am
is now preside i asked how much was stopped and he said i think 75%. >> so, he's not talking about elections being stolen except in some cases when he is talking about elections being stolen. >> i would be -- if you want me to tell you the election of philadelphia and chicago is going to be fair, i would have to be a moron to say that. i would have to dislearn everything i learned in 40 years. >> the republican party of philadelphia would disagree with you. they looked into the allegations of 2012 and there is nothing irregular. there were places that only voted for obama just like places in utah only voted for romney. >> i remember a case when i was associate attorney general where 720 dead people voted in the election and i remember in my own election about 62 dead people voted. i can't sit here and tell you that they don't cheat.
11:06 am
and i know because they control the polling places in these areas. there's no republicans. that is very hard to get people there who will challenge votes. so, what they do is they leave dead people on the rolls and then they pay people to vote those dead people. >> we have to go, mr. mayor -- just to put a button on this, it sounds as if you are saying that trump is serious when he says that the election is going to be -- >> i'm not saying that. >> you just laid out a whole case on how democrats do elections. >> if she wins illinois by 8% or he wins illinois by 8%, then that cheating isn't going to make any difference. if he wins pennsylvania by 5 or she wins by 5, it will make no difference. if it's a one or two-point race t could make a difference in a few places. not going to make a difference in indiana and not. >> that's not an affirmation of the way our elections are held
11:07 am
this country. >> but we do cheat. we have people who cheat in elections. >> you're saying only democrats. only democrats cheat. >> found very few situations where republicans cheat. they don't control the inner cities. maybe if republicans control the inner cities, they do as much cheating as democrats. >> i think a lot of election experts that would have very, very strong disagreements with you. >> they never prosecute election fraud. >> mr. mayor, thank you very much. appreciate it. let's talk more about this with our panel cnn presidential historian and former director of the nixon presidential library and cnn political commentator and matt lewis. good to see both of you, gentlemen. all right, so, tim, you first. how do you interpret rudy giuliani's comments? are they potentially dangerous this close to election day? >> well, it's dismaying that somebody who served as a law enforcement prosecutor should be
11:08 am
telling the american people and telling trump supporters that the democratic party cheats. and this is laying the foundation for a period of national uncertainty after the election. should current trends continue and hillary clinton be elected, mr. giuliani and donald trump are laying out a case for not accepting the outcome. now, mr. giuliani did give a sort of subtle expression of the fact that, well, you know, if the race isn't that close, it's not fraud. and where the fraud won't matter, but he is saying that he expects the democrats to cheat. that's really dangerous. and it's unprecedented. you have not heard this from surrogates in elections before in this way. this really is new in american elections and i would hope that people who care about the sanctity of the institutions, our institutions will stand up. i notice paul ryan yesterday said that he didn't agree with
11:09 am
these comments about the election being rigged and i understand that pence has also distanced himself from these comments. >> and you've kept all that up. i have that for you. this is paul ryan through a spokesperson saying our democracy relies on confidence and election results and the speaker is fully confident the state will carry out this election with integrity and we also heard from donna brazille saying this, "donald trump is trying to convince voters that their votes don't count by telling them that the system is rigged. he's wrong. voting has never been easier and more americans are seeing donald trump's fear mongrg for what it really is. fear. then you mentioned mike pence. he did comment on this, as well as the former house speaker, newt gingrich. listen. >> i'm just saying to you that there are clearly cases where you clearly have intimidation. there are cases where you clearly have theft. there are cases where you
11:10 am
have -- a guy in california who was voting 24 years after he died. the suggestion that people who are concerned about honest elections are somewhat nutty are a mistake. second, trump complaint about the election is not at the poll level, it's at the media level. it's big reing rigged by the national media that are doing everything they can to suppress bad news about hillary. >> we'll accept the results of the election. look, the american people will speak in an election that will culminate on november 8th. the american people are tired of the obvious bias in the national media. that's where the sense of a rigged election goes here. >> so, matt, do you agree with tim that it's not even potentially dangerous leading up to the election, but potentially dangerous after the election as it pertains to whatever the outcome? >> yeah. the interesting thing here, of course, is that we've always had, you know, here and there the potential for voter fraud. and i think any responsible and prudent campaign would have
11:11 am
measures to try to make sure that that doesn't happen. but donald trump is sort of preemptively declaring that there is going to be voter fraud. it seems like he is setting up his voters in case he loses, providing them with an excuse and i think it's very dangerous and irresponsible rhetoric because it does seem like trump is setting it up to be. he now thinks he's going to lose and if and when that happens, he's going to say that i didn't lose. it was rigged. and the, it is so important, i think, for the american people to have trust in the election and the electoral process and the efficacy of the election. you want to talk about really creating a problem that would be so hard for us to solve. the belief in the institution that your vote actually counts. if politicians, if donald trump can sort of wear down and destroy the notion that your
11:12 am
vote actually counted, that's a really huge problem, i think, for america. >> all right, so, tim and matt, stick with us. we have more to talk about straight ahead another woman and another claim about donald trump's behavior. a closer look at the ninth accuser to step forward. my insurance rates are but dad, you've got... with accident forgiveness they guarantee your rates won't go up just because of an accident.
11:13 am
smart kid. indeed. it's good to be in, good hands.
11:14 am
11:15 am
the sexual assault scandal surrounding cdonald trump is getting bigger. a ninth woman has come forward. 63-year-old cathy heldered said the incident happened nearly 20 years ago. cnn's jessica snider joins me now. you have spoken to her, what does she tell you? >> she was shaken and shocked by this uninvited kiss and aggressive behavior. she's 63 years old now and she said it was in the late 1990s when she was at mar-a-lago for a
11:16 am
brunch and then she tells me, "i put out my hand and said hello and he grabbed me." i was standing and had heels on and almost fell back. he pulled me towards him. he was very strong. her family saw all this happen and for years it was just a running family joke. now realizing it is not a laughing matter. i did speak with one of her friends who said it was about a year and a half ago when donald trump was rising to political prominence that cathy heller started telling her friends about trump's actions and inappropriate kiss and last friday when the "access hollywood" tape came out she realized she wasn't the only one this happened to. >> what has the trump campaign said about this particular accusation? >> the trump campaign has been responding furiously to this. both the candidate himself and
11:17 am
also his team. all these allegations. in particular for this cathy heller accusation, jason miller, the senior communications adv e adviser came out with this statement very biting. the media has gone too far in making this false accusation. there is no way something like this would have happened in a public place on mother's day at mr. trump's resort. it would have been the talk of palm beach for the past two decades. the reality is this. for the media to wheel out a politically motivated democratic activist with a legal dispute does a disservice to the public and anyone covering this story should be embarrassed for elevating this bogus claim. she does admit she is a hillary supporter and has given money to the hillary clinton campaign. as for the legal dispute alluded to cathy heller says it's a money dispute with the
11:18 am
initiation fees they paid decades ago. donald trump tweeting about this this morning saying it is part of a rigged election and media bias. >> jessica snider, thank you so much. this morning jake tapper asked rudy giuliani about this ninth accuser and if he believed that all nine women are as trump insists, liars. >> you think the nine women are lying. >> i would not say it that way. i believe donald trump. i would have to study each case to tell you that. i'm not going to engage clinton-type contact and attack them. i am just telling you that i believe he's telling the truth. some of these things appear on their face to be kind of untrue. 15 minutes of groping and a first-class cabin of an airplane. it doesn't make sense.
11:19 am
i've bipartisan in fireen in fi i've stopped being mayor i could afford first class. you see everything that goes on in first class. >> you just alluded to the fact that donald trump has condemned the clintons for attacking bill clinton's accusers, the women who accused bill clinton of misconduct. you're kind of refraining from doing so, even though you're questioning some of these accounts. but donald trump is out there on stages calling them liars and, actually, in some instances, attacking how attractive they are. basically suggesting that they're not attractive enough for him to ever kiss or grope without consent. for those voters out there, mr. mayor, who are inclined to believe all of these women, all nine of trump's accusers and bill clinton's accusers and just say, you know what, i believe all these women. how are they supposed to
11:20 am
reconcile this give on the fact that imper pairically trump is attacking these women much more than the clintons ever did. >> that's not true. >> sure it is. donald trump is out there giving speeches attacking them. saying they're not good-looking enough. >> the four women who i met with tell me that hillary clinton was engaged in all kinds of attacks public and private. shouldn't we be beyond donald trump's past and hillary clinton's past and should we be talking about who is going to raise taxes and lower taxes and who is going to deal with isis and who isn't. who created isis. what are we going to do in somalia. we have a ground war going on in somalia and the president says no boots on the ground. we have boots on the ground. >> these are things that donald trump is not mentioning in his speeches at all. donald trump's speeches, as you
11:21 am
know, he kngoes out there and attacks the women who are accusing him and, by the way, when you talk about shouldn't we be over this, donald trump, the women you just referred to. the three women who accused bill clinton of sexual assault or worse and the woman who hillary clinton was a court-appointed attorney to represent her, those four women. donald trump brought them to the republican debate. it's not the media making sexual assault. donald trump is the one making sexual assault an issue. >> they asked to come. they asked to come. but the reality is, can we get off it? do we have to take the bait? still to come, wikileaks releases more hacked e-mails and what appears to be three speeches hillary clinton gave to a wall street firm. how this latest dump of stolen information could play out in wednesday's debate. an opening night on broadway is kind of magic.
11:22 am
i'm beowulf boritt and i'm a broadway set designer. when i started designing a bronx tale: the musical, i came up... ...with this idea of four towers that were fire escapes... ...essentially. i'll build a little model in photoshop and add these... ...details in with a pen. i could never do that with a mac. i feel like my job is... put out there just enough detail to spur the audiences... ...imagination to fill in all the blanks. this windows pc is amazing, having all of my tools... ...right at my finger tips is incredible.
11:23 am
whmy doctor.houldn't hamy dentist.veryday? definitely my wife. wait, i know what i want. make sparkling water at home. and drink 43% more water every day. sodastream. love your water.
11:24 am
woman: how do we protect them from $4 billion in new cuts to california schools? man: vote yes on proposition 55. woman: prop 55 doesn't raise taxes on anyone. man: not on working californians, not small businesses. no one. woman: instead, prop 55 simply maintains the current tax rate on the wealthiest californians. man: so those who can most afford it continue paying their fair share... woman: prevent new education cuts... man: ...and keep improving california's schools.
11:25 am
woman: vote yes on prop 55 to help our children thrive. welcome back. i'm fredricka whitfield. as donald trump faces new allegations of sexual misconduct, the republican presidential candidate is stepping up his attacks against the husband of his opponent blasting bill clinton's past sexual improprieties. the clinton supporters are firing back. vice president joe biden said the president was contrite and insists trump's hot mike comments from the 2005 video showed that the gop nominee is unapologetic.
11:26 am
>> i can't make any excuses for bill clinton's conduct. and i wouldn't attempt to make any excuses for the conduct. but he paid the price for it. he paid the price. he was impeached. and he was, he expressed his deep sorrow and acknowledged what he did. this guy, as i said, has acknowledged that he has been a sexual predator. he's acknowledged that he abused his power. >> two men in positions of power accused of sexual misconduct. so, why aren't bill clinton and donald trump held to the same standard? jake tapper put that same question to house democratic leader and house speaker nancy pelosi. >> well, it is a double standard. bill clinton is not on the ballot. he is not on the ballot. hillary clinton is the candidate for president that we are asking people to vote for. not because she's a woman and not because her husband was
11:27 am
president and all the good things he did, as well. but abecaubecause she is one of best people to be qualified. >> bill clinton may not be on the ballot, but if hillary wins, he will be in the white house. here to talk about it adam hajj. good to see you. nancy pelosi there saying not to focus on bill clinton when voting for hillary clinton. but hillary clinton has said her husband will play a role on her administration, like focusing on the economy. why not ask voters to take bill clinton's past into consideration when they are choosing, while they're choosing between hillary clinton and donald trump? >> look, i think what you heard from nancy pelosi is exactly right. and i think, look, as we get into the debate this week, the one most important thing is just the opportunity for secretary clinton to lay out her vision and the solutions that she's going to take to being the commander in chief.
11:28 am
she's the one on the ballot. she's the one running to be president of the united states and i think the american people are really responding to the ideas and solutions that she's putting on the table. >> so, your view is that voters also would be considering donald trump's wife, melania from her work immigration history or this last summer's plagerized portions of her rnc speech. >> we'll leave it to mr. trump to how he wants to run his campaign. the only thing we can control is talking about the issues and solutions that are really on the minds of the american voters. and that's what we've done across the country. talking about, you know, child care. talk about how we're going to lift every american up. talking about how we're going to build an economy that works for everyone. that's what people want to hear about. >> is it your view then that from the point of view from american voters that it's irrelevant the spouse's history
11:29 am
or conduct? >> the american people don't want to worry about what happened in the past. i think what they really want to worry about and what they want to hear from the people who they're going to vote for is what ideas and solutions they have to the biggest challenges that we face. that's the most important part we're looking forward. and secretary clinton is the only candidate in this race who has really offered concrete solutions who has really talked about the ideas that would drive her time in the oval office. what you're hearing from donald trump is nothing but slogans and empty promises. he's not talking about the solutions that the american people want to hear about. >> three days ahead of the final presidential debate, let's talk about the wikileaks dump. you know, of these aeledlleged e-mails about the clinton camp and about the political behavior. do you believe in which she will address those issues right off the top during the debate.
11:30 am
is it at all a distraction or in any way undermining of her campaign? >> well, look, we can't forget that this was a crime committed against the democratic party perpetrated by russia, our u.s. intelligence committee were unequivalical that they think it was a time to influence our election. the only person who stands to benefit from that interference is donald trump. it should give every american pause and every day when i walk past the watergate the file cabinet that is in the basement of our building, this is just a modern day version of that crime. and you have to ask the question, why won't donald trump admit that's what is going on. he's been briefed by the fbi. they've told him who they think is behind this, yet, he will still stand there on the debate stage in front of 80 million americans and won't answer the real question about what he knows to be true. and that should make every american pause. >> even his running mate mike
11:31 am
pence today on "meet the press" said the opposite. and said in it is his belief that russia has been meddling in these cyberhacks and his running mate, as you mentioned donald trump has been saying it is uncertain. >> look, i take my word from the intelligence community. they know what they're talking about. they are seeing their own intelligence and they have been very, very clear what's going on here. and i think, again, that should give all americans regardless of your party pause. this is a crime. and we shouldn't be using all the information that has come in about this. we don't know if it's real or fake. just this week you saw the story -- >> in terms of the clinton campaign is still not willing to say whether those e-mails are, indeed, authentic. >> that's right. just this week there was a news
11:32 am
story that broke that showed that there were fake op-eds submitted supposedly from the dnc to "the new york times" and it was a fake e-mail. a complete clone. we can't speak to what is real and what's not. >> adam, thank you so much. >> always a pleasure. with wikileaks and the slew of now trump accusers, the next debate is likely going to be bruising. ahead, we'll talk about the candidates' possible strategies as they prepare for this final faceoff. make their secret recipe. turn it off! i'm trying to! this is why i trust tide. it has the power to get out the kind of things we get into... in just one wash. removes over 100 stains in one wash. it's got to be tide.
11:33 am
11:34 am
people would ask me that we traveled,ntries what is your nationality and i would always answer hispanic. so when i got my ancestry dna results it was a shocker. i'm from all nations. it puts a hunger in your heart to want to know more.
11:35 am
hello. welcome back to "newsroom." i'm fredricka whitfield. the sexual assaults are not the campaign's only dilemma heading into wednesday night's debate. mike pence disagrees with trump's stance on russia and cybersecurity. trump has said it's unclear
11:36 am
whether russia is to blame. but here is mike pence on nbc's "meet the press" this morning. >> well, i think there's more and more evidence that implicates russia and there should be serious consequences. the privacy and the security of the american people. >> why doesn't your running mate believe that? >> and i certainly hope what the vice president said this morning is something that they follow through on. >> why does your running mate not believe? >> too often has spoken things on the foreign stage and then not follow through like moving red lines, fainting a reset with russia. my hope is that the evidence does float to russia that there are, in fact, serious consequences and there should be serious consequences. remember, this avalanche of e-mails -- >> why doesn't your running mate believe what you believe about a foreign government in russia trying to hack into the american democracy? >> well, donald trump and i believe we should follow the facts. and america should stand strong
11:37 am
and we should stand up for cybersecurity. >> let's bring back our political panel to talk about this. tim and matt lewis. so, gentlemen, you heard the differences there and how mike pence, you know, does indeed believe that russia had something to do with the cyberattack. so, tim, how strange is this that you would have these two sharing a ticket, yet, they would see things pretty differently on a sizable issue. >> a number of people when watching the vice presidential debate thought they were watching the beginning of the 2020 campaign. it is really interesting to see governor pence distance himself on a number of key trump issues from his running mate. >> is there a reason for that, in your view? or just a distinction that they're different? >> you don't see that in campaigns. i think it's because he's trying to save his political career. he's thinking beyond, i don't know him, so, i'm imputing
11:38 am
moti motive. i don't know for sure. the way he's asking suggests that he's trying to protect himself in case his campaign collapses. >> matt, do you see that there could be an intentional separation between the two? or is it just they're not talking? >> i think both. i think both. and i think -- they're very different people. i mean, mike pence is a main stream conservative. sort of in the mode of a ronald reagan and donald trump is not. he's a former democrat. so, they just, they just disagree about some of these fundamental things. if you're donald trump the way to handle it is not pretend it is otherwise. look, i'm the head of the ticket and my administration, we're going to do things my way. but i'm excited and i think it's actually a good thing that mike pence and i don't agree on every single issue. and it's like a team of rivals and it's helpful to have people around you who don't see
11:39 am
everything exactly the way you do. so, hang a latentern on your problem. if you're donald trump, don't pretend -- it's hard to say on tv. don't pretend, don't pretend. i think just embrace it. >> go ahead, tim. >> but that would require that donald trump have a thicker skin. >> yes. >> than he's shown to have. so, you're right. but that would, you know -- >> so, now, we're just three days away from the final presidential debate. you have that issue of the cybersecurity and you have the accusers now, nine accusers of donald trump and then you have the issue of the wikileaks dump, et cetera. so, matt, you know, among these, you know, potential land mines for both of these candidates, does it put them in a situation where they have to, you know, really come out swinging in terms of defending themselves in all of these areas? >> i think we always assume that
11:40 am
debates are going to be about one big issue or the second debate we assumed that the "access hollywood" stuff would really be front and center and it took up about the first 20 minutes of the debate and then they were talking about benghazi and taxes and all sorts of stuff. so, it's hard to predict what is going to really, what any debate is going to be about. i do think strategically if i was advising them i would tell hillary clinton, go back to what you did in the first debate which was to bait donald trump, get under his skin. he usually falls for it. he usually takes the bait and i think if i were advising donald trump i would tell him, this election you have to say seven out of ten americans aren't happy with the direction. hillary clinton is the status quo. you are the change agent. if you say that over and over for an hour and a half, you'll win the debate. i don't think he can, but if he does, he'll win the debate. >> tim, do you see a real different approach or, you know, a return to a certain approach for either one of these
11:41 am
candidates on this third and final debate? >> i agree with matt. you know, donald trump was most effective when he looked at hillary clinton and he said, you know, you had 30 years to fix these problems and you haven't. it wasn't a fair challenge, but it did feed the narrative that standard politicians fail us. but, what he needs to do is to stop throwing mud and present for people why he would be a temperament, solid head of state. >> isn't it too late for that? too late for a new demeanor with 22/23 days to go? >> well, look, the trends are such that it looks like it's too late. but we've learned in this campaign cycle not to predict things. i will say this, donald trump has a chance to sell himself, again. each debate is new. and there may be some people out there. it's hard tabelieve, but there may be people out there who haven't made up their minds. for them, this could be a new
11:42 am
trump and it could help. his problem is that he's losing in battleground states and i don't know if he has the campaign to actually do anything about turn out there. but there's no question he has one more chance to try to pretend to be presidential. as for secretary clinton, this is great, a real opportunity to distance herself from the mud. not to fall into the gutter with him when he dragged her really into it and just say what she would do as president to try to put positive on what has been a horrible election cycle so far. >> all right, lots to do in just three weeks. we shall see. thank you so much, tim, matt, appreciate it. >> thank you. still ahead, he is the third party candidate providing one final refuge for the never trump conservatives. evan mcmullen joins us next on his moon shot white house bid. d. it seems age isn't slowing you down. but your immune system weakens as you get older increasing the risk for me, the shingles virus.

i've been lurking inside you since you had chickenpox. i could surface anytime as a painful, blistering rash. one in three people get me in their lifetime, linda. will it be you? and that's why linda got me zostavax, a single shot vaccine. i'm working to boost linda's immune system to help protect her against you, shingles. zostavax is a vaccine used to prevent shingles in adults fifty years of age and older. zostavax does not protect everyone and cannot be used to treat shingles or the nerve pain that may follow it. you should not get zostavax if you are allergic to gelatin or neomycin, have a weakened immune system or take high doses of steroids are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. the most common side effects include redness, pain, itching, swelling, hard lump warmth or bruising at the injection site and headache. it's important to talk to your doctor about what situations you may need to avoid since zostavax contains a weakened chickenpox virus. remember one in three people get shingles in their lifetime,

donald trump refusing to back down and continuing to claim that if he loses, it's because of a rigged system. this as a new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll has clinton up by 11 points over trump in a four-way race and in places like utah, trump is in a fight with not only hillary clinton, but independent candidate evan mcmullen who has garnered 20% of

the vote in the state of utah in a new monmouth university poll. i'm joined now by evan mcmullin. >> good to see you, fredricka. good to be on with you. >> excellent. voters across the country have gotten used to third-party candidates names like jill stein and gary johnson, but what do they need to know about evan mcmullin? >> i'm more than the typical third-party candidate in the sense that i'm more of a main stream candidate. i just happen to be an independent. i'm a conservative. unfortunately, i'm the only conservative in this race. donald trump certainly is not one. and he's doing enormous damage to our country in so many ways. pitting race against race. religion against religion and attacking women and undermining our democracy and doing the work of vladimir putin and suggesting that our democracy isn't legitimate. this is a guy who should not be a major party nominee and should be no where close to the white
11:48 am
house. and my running mate and i decided to step up and try to offer the american people a better option. not only an alternative to donald trump, but hillary clint clinton. >> so, evan, your state has voted republican since the '60s. what does it say when a third-party candidate such as yourself, you're describing yourself as a conservative independent also putting up a very strong showing. why are you resonating particularly in utah? >> well, i would say that utah has been a conservative state. in the past that meant that they voted republican. but more about principle and conservatism and more about the fundamental principles i think, that made this country the most powerful, prosperous country on earth. the fact that we're all created equal no matter the color of our skin or our gender or anything else. the idea that we all have a right to life, liberty and the

pursuit to happiness. i believe that people in utah and the broader mountain west value and are looking for in their leaders. leaders who will protect those values. leaders who acknowledge that those are timeless truths that are fundamental to the success of our country. >> so, evan, i'm noticing you're in las vegas and three days away from the final presidential debate. does that mean you're going to be front and center there in the audience? >> well, we'll be -- we're figuring out what we're going to be doing during the debate. we have some interesting invitations and ideas but we have some big media engagements today and we're here for that. but we'll see what ends up playing out on debate day. i would love to be on the stage and i would relish the opportunity to debate hillary clinton and donald trump. that's probably not going to be the case. >> your polling numbers aren't such to put you on the stage but to be in the arena, you know, courtside, so to speak. ring side, so to speak. that still a possibility? >> it certainly is.
11:50 am
we'll be, we'll have our voices heard. but i would challenge the idea that only the republican nominee and the democratic nominee can be on that stage. that's the system we've got. it's set up to limit involvement of independent candidates. but it is what it is. either way we'll have our voices heard and be advancing our message. >> evan mcmullin, good luck. >> all right, thank you. we'll be right back. ♪

when legalizing safe, responsible adult use of marijuana, the most important question

is how? by voting yes on prop 64: adults 21 and over could only purchase marijuana at licensed marijuana businesses. and prop 64 bans advertising directed at kids... requires strict product labeling... child-proof packaging... and bans edibles that appeal to children. smart provisions to safeguard our families. learn more about the safeguards at

all right. "saturday night live" taking on the second presidential debate with alec baldwin trump responding to the accusations made against him. >> mr. trump, we received a lot of questions online about the audiotape that was released last week of you bragging about sexually assaulting women. >> listen, what i said is nothing compared to what bill clinton has done, okay. he has abused women and martha, anderson, hold on [ bleep ]. because four of those women are here tonight. four of them. >> wait, i'm sorry, who's here? >> mistresses. bill, how could you? how will i go on with the
11:55 am
debate? oh, donald, get real. i'm made of steel, this is nothing. hi, girls. >> donald trump actually reacting on twitter by saying, watching "saturday night live" time to retire the boring and n unfunny show. alec baldwin portrayal stinks. straight ahead, more on the ninth accuser speaking out against trump claiming he kissed her against her will and then, despite the accusations, some trump supporters all echoing trump's message that the election is rigged. we'll talk more straight ahead in the n"newsroom." >> it is being rigged by corrupt media pushing false allegations and outright lies. >> i think what donald trump is talking about is frankly what appears to be the monolithic support for hillary clinton's campaign.
11:56 am
>> this election is being rigged by the national media who are doing everything they can to suppress bad news about hillary. >> when he talks about a rigged election not talking about the fact that it is rigged at the polls. what he's talking about is 80% to 85% of the media is against it. sorry, ariana you gotta go. seriously? verizon limits me and i gotta get home. you're gonna choose navigation over me? maps get up here. umm... that way. girl! you better get on t-mobile! why pay more for data limits? introducing t-mobile one, unlimited data for everyone. get four lines just $35 a month.

hello, again.
12:00 pm
thank you for joining me. i'm fredricka whitfield. with less than 23 days now to election day, two new major polls show clinton in the lead and the abc news/"washington post" poll shows hillary clinton four points ahead of donald trump and an nbc "wall street journal" poll shows clinton with an 11-point advantage. both tol polls were taken aftert leaked tape of trump bragging. how is that affecting the race? we'll discuss all of that this hour and trump continues to beat to a drum of fear declaring this election rigged, dishonest and saying the media is distorted. >> the election is being rigged by corrupt media pushing false allegations and outright lies in an effort to elect hillary clinton president. but we are going to stop it. we
