you have to watch because this system is totally rigged. >> make no mistake by doing that, he is threatening our democracy. >> we still have a path through several different ways. >> we will win. we will shock the world. this is going to be brexit plus. >> we know in our country the difference between leadership and dictatorship. >> we have a bunch of babies running our country, folks. they're losers. they're babies. >> i wish you were in high school. i could take him behind the gym. that's what i wish. ♪ >> take a nice deep breath because you made it to saturday morning and we are so grateful to have your company. i'm christi paul. >> i'm victor blackwell. good to be with you. in just a few hours donald trump will speak in gettysburg, virginia. >> the significance of this venue not lost, of course.
5:01 am
this is the same of course same city where abraham lincoln made his huge speech. both candidates are in a campaign frenzy, so to speak, this weekend. making their pitch to undecided voters all over the map as they eye that finish line now. >> here is what mr. trump's advisers tell us to expect from his gettysburg speech, quote, a lot more details on policy and an outline of the ten principles he wants to do in the first 100 days. that's a quote. now, he doesn't plan to name any potential cabinet positions. we shouldn't look for that. but voters can expect to see another, quote, real emotion connection, emotional connection with some policies that are near and dear to his heart like trade and supporting police. let's bring in cnn political commentator and host of cnn's smerconish. michael smerconish, good morning to you. let me come to you first the setting, the site, choosing gettysburg for this speech. >> victor, christie, nice to see
5:02 am
you both. it's a two-fer. it's one of the most important sites in all of america and yet it's a pennsylvania site, mr. trump was in my home state of pennsylvania through the evening last night. he's back today. so he gets to reach a pennsylvania audience and a national audience. i don't know about you, victor, it sent me back to the history books. i wanted to remind myself of some of the facts. when abraham lincoln spoke at gettysburg, it was only two minutes long and ten sentences. it's kind of ironic that donald trump is coming and saying well this will be the speech where i will be more expansive and i will speak in detail as to what those first 100 days would look like. he did this months ago and now he's coming back to try to close the deal. but you know throughout the course of the campaign it's really been generalities and not specifics that have brought him thus far. maybe are precluding him from advancing. it will be a very interesting address. >> i went back and red the gettysburg address and actually the second inaugural address as well this morning. that is brief compared to what
5:03 am
we hear from president's elect today. now, let's talk about he's done this before. he did it four months ago as you mentioned. is the expectation here that this will -- this emotional connection to these issues will spur some type of surge in the campaign or is this the typical closing argument we would expect 17 days out from the election? >> what's been unique at least to me about the trump campaign is that there really never was a pivot. for so many different events that would unfold, maybe it was the convention, maybe it was the debates, i kept waiting to see where is the outreach to the demographics that are not part of the trump constituency and i would say it never came. it's a little late to try to make that move today. so, i guess what i'm trying to say, victor, is i'm curious to know who is the audience? is the audience those white working class, those blue collar voters who are firmly in his camp, those lacking a college degree? will there be some outreach
5:04 am
today? you know the purpose of this speech was one of unification after a blood bath in this country. will donald trump try and be a unifier ayla abraham lincoln tonight. is that why he's going to gettysburg? will he say more things to people of color and to hispanics than he has said in the last several months? i don't know. that will be the most interesting part. >> maybe try to write his own legacy after this campaign. the audience may be history will look ahead to see what we hear from donald trump. michael smerconish, thank you so much. hillary clinton we should point out also in pennsylvania today. she and her surrogates trying to win over the undecided voters particularly in battleground states where both candidates are neck and neck in the polls. want to bring in mj lee. mj, walk us through some of these maps and how she specifically is doing in some of these battleground states. >> reporter: good morning.
5:05 am
that's right. 17 days out from election day and it is all about the battleground states. and the clinton campaign right now is actually feeling pretty confident when it looks at the map. they know they have pulled ahead in key battleground states like florida and nevada and traditionally republican strongholds, states like arizona and utah, they are now seeing a scenario where these states actually look competitive. so the campaign is starting to spend resources, money, devoting time and personnel in these states that they probably would not have necessarily thought would be this competitive, even a couple months ago. now all of this of course means that the road to 270 electoral votes is tougher than ever before for donald trump. we are seeing clear signs that the recent series of scandals that he has become involved in, whether it's the access hollywood tape, the various allegations from women about inappropriate behavior from
5:06 am
donald trump years ago, that those things have ultimately hurt him in the final stretch. and all of this is why the clinton campaign is making sure that she has picked up her pace of campaigning in this final stretch, right after the final debate happened on wednesday night in las vegas. she's not taking a break this weekend. she's campaigning in cleveland yesterday. as you mentioned, she is going to be in pennsylvania all of today with her running mate tim kaine and tomorrow she heads to north carolina. this will be a very busy weekend for her. and a huge focus for clinton right now is early voting. this means that she wants her supporters and potentially independent voters and people who might be reconsidering their support for donald trump right now heading out to vote now. her message right now is do not wait until november 8th and all of this means is hillary clinton wants to make sure that she is capitalizing on the momentum that she feels like she has
5:07 am
right now and her message, of course, is that she's not taking anything for granted. >> obviously all right. mj lee, thank you so much. hey f you're wondering what happened to netflix, twitter maybe yesterday, if you couldn't watch or tweet, it's because your home dvr may have been used against you. yeah, we have the shocking new details on what happened with that widespread cyberattack. that's just ahead. am to state for the first time... gilman: go get it, marcus. go get it. gilman used his cash rewards credit card from bank of america to earn 1% cash back everywhere, every time. at places like the batting cages. ♪ [ crowd cheers ] 2% back at grocery stores and now at wholesale clubs. and 3% back on gas. which helped him give his players something extra. the cash rewards credit card from bank of america. more cash back for the things you buy most.

5:10 am
so, let me ask you this, was your internet acting just a little crazy yesterday? >> uh-huh. >> is cra-cra is term of last year? >> wonky, i don't know. >> a massive cyberattack was partly carried out by
5:11 am
infiltrating devices in your home right now. this is serious. hundreds of thousands of dvrs and web cams were faken over by malware. >> yeah. this is an attack that caused widespread outages online. look at this. match a number of popular websites, netflix, spotify, twitter all going down. the fbi is investigating. no one has pointed a finger as one particular group or nation here. what led to this cyber breech. we want to bring in samuel burke who is joining us from london and looking at that. what have you learned about that question in specifics, samuel? >> reporter: well, we're just learning how these devices were used as part of this major cyber security attack. in fact, i would call it one of the most serious, if not one of the largest that the internet has ever seen. what happens in this type of attack the hackers overwhelm a company. in this time it was a company called dime. it's the middleman of the internet. when you type in,
5:12 am
they make sure you get to that website. but what they did was use traffic from all over the world including traffic from your own device. so imagine if in your home your dvr which was recording some show was being used to send traffic to help overwhelm this company and then as a secondary effect it was taking down all these other websites so you couldn't connect to them. absolutely incredible to think that all that could be going on in your living room without you even knowing. >> so, samuel, let me ask you, i know that they don't have anyone in particular that they've been able to focus on as the culprit, but what was the overall intent here? was there any information compromised? >> it doesn't look like there was any information compromised. this type of hack isn't the type of hack where they go in and get information and steal it. it's the type of hack where they just try to overwhelm the internet to try to bring it down. imagine if you and i were upset at a grocery store for some reason and we sent all of our friends to try to block the doors from getting in. that would be the actually
5:13 am
physical equivalent of this happening. it did have a huge effect. people want to know who was this? though so far nobody is pointing any fingers at any particular group or nation, at least not yet. but as you guys can imagine, as you've been reporting on election, tensions are very high right now with the united states pointing their finger at russia for some of the leaked e-mails, but nobody has said it was russia and no other group or nation has been named at least not for now. >> and there's no understanding or no expectation that anyone would claim responsibility in a situation like this. >> there's not. many times there is, but lot of times you never know who it is, but there was this interesting tweet from wikileaks if we could put that up on the screen for the folks at home to see. this tweet coming from them yesterday, mr. asange is still alive and wikileaks is still publishing. we ask supporters to stop taking down the u.s. internet. you proved your point. just to be clear, wikileaks isn't taking any responsibility there, even hinting responsibility, and none of
5:14 am
people i talked to close to this investigation on dime side are saying they believe it was wikileaks. as you mentioned, the fbi is investigating right now and saying they're looking at every possibility, but they aren't pointing any fingers yet either. >> samuel burke, thank you for walking us through it. bridgegate is back, potentially to haunt new jersey governor chris kri see the. he maintains he did not know about it when it was happening but in court documents we know now have a top aide there is a different story out there. we'll hear the details from that aid.

bridgegate scandal back in the spotlight after his former deputy chief of staff came out with some damning testimony about the new jersey governor. >> she claims that kristie definitely had a hand in purposefully snarling traffic on the george washington bridge back in 2013. our friend brynn gingras is here with details. >> this is the first time that kristie's former aide bridge et kelly answered any questions regarding her alleged involvement of what we now know as bridgegate. this is also the first time we're hearing about the discussions she had with the governor before those controversial lane closures. time for some traffic problems. those words in an e-mail, a key piece of evidence what's notoriously known as bridgegate. the e-mail led to controversial lane closures at the george washington bridge connecting new york and new jersey back in
5:20 am
2013. which since then has dogged kristy and landed his former aid bridget kelly on trial facing federal charges. kelly testified in court the e-mail was sent to david wildstein one day after letting governor kristie know about a planned traffic study. something wild steen asked her explicitly to do, she says. she explained her words were meant to give the green light for that study. wildstooen has pleaded guilty to being the self described master mind behind the plot to close lanes which federal prosecutor caused major gridlock and were an act of political retribution against the ft. lee new jersey mayor who yet to endorse kristie. christy has not been charged and consistently denies any involvement. it contradicts what christi said in a 2013 news conference that his senior staff did not know lane closures would be a part of
5:21 am
traffic study. kelly isn't the only one on trial. her co-defendant, bill ba rowny, a former port authority executive also testified this week and like kelly, he maintains he was aware of the traffic study but knew nothing about lane closures as an act of political retaliation. separately, christie will appear next month in a municipal court following a citizen complaint about those lane closures. it alleges christie was negligent while witnessing the days of gridlock on the george washington bridge. >> we reached out to the governor's office to get comment in regards to kelly's testimony and his office released a statement in part saying the governor had no knowledge prior to or during these lane realinements and had no role in authorizing them. anything said to the contrary is simply untrue. >> brin, thank you so much. donald trump once again claims the election is rigged against him, but he is also making a push today to try to

5:26 am
him. now, he just hasn't provided any evidence that fraud will indeed occur on election day. here is last night in pennsylvania, in fact, where he repeated the claims. >> remember, folks, it's a rigged system. just remember it. it's a rigged system. it's a rigged system. don't ever forget it. that's why you got to get out and vote. you have to watch because this system is totally rigged. >> today, trump is headed to gettysburg. he is going to talk about unity. want to bring in cnn politic senior reporter steven colinson. steven, let's get back to this whole idea that this system is rigged. we said that he hasn't given us any evidence of that, but talk to us about really the plausibility. it seems there would have to be such widespread work from both democrats and republicans to disrupt an entire nationwide
5:27 am
election. >> that's right. this is an election that's not just one election, of course it's carried out across 50 states. >> uh-huh. >> the idea that there could be some conspiracy in each precinct of each state to make this election unfair is fanciful. we've had elections in the past, most recently in 2000 where the election was disputed. it's highly unusual if not unprecedented for a candidate to go into the election saying the election is rigged against him. we need to look at what donald trump is trying to achieve with this. you know, this message probably alienates independent and more moderate voters. at this point in the election, it looks like donald trump is to drive up a huge turnout from his base and confound the pollsters and all their models of what the elect rat looks like. this is a message that is taken very seriously by donald trump's supporters. if you go to a donald trump rally, people there sincerely believe the political system on
5:28 am
a more broader sense is rigged against donald trump. particularly the media. they honestly feel that the mainstream media is inherently biased against donald trump and in favor of hillary clinton. so this in some ways, although it is a divisive message on a national sense is a very good message to drive up donald trump's turnout from his core base voters. >> is it? is there a chance that his message about it being rigged could be counterproductive, that people think, well, if it's rigged i'm not going to bother to go to the polls because my voter doesn't count any way? >> that's a possibility and some people think that donald trump's tactic is also designed to drive down democratic turnout, to make democrats perhaps fear that as they go to the polls there could be some intimidation. i think it's a good question. at the same time, there's no doubt that donald trump has stirred great enthusiasm among his most loyal supporters. the question is whether that translates to them going to the polls on election day. but, you know, i don't think
5:29 am
we're going to know the answer to that question until november 8th. it's possible if donald trump is down six, seven, eight points as he appears to be nationally right now, some of his voters won't turn out any way if they think the election is a fair to complete. i think it's hard to sort out. it could vary within states. we're just going to have to work out and see what happens. >> okay. again, watching gettysburg in just a couple hours where donald trump will be giving a speech there. steven colinson, appreciate your insight as always. thank you, sir. let's talk about this claim that the election is rigged. we have with us alan dershowitz, defense attorney and author of the book with the best title out this year, "electile dysfunction" a guide for unaroused voters, also matt slab, trump supporters. alan dershowitz said he would vote for hillary clinton. good to have both offyou this morning. >> great to be with you, victor. >> matt, i want to start with
5:30 am
you. >> sure. >> if donald trump is really -- guys in the control room, let's ready the may sound bite from west virginia. if donald trump is really genuine when he says this election is rigged, because we heard this claim from trump during the primary, and this is what he said near the end of the primary fight -- >> you've been hearing me say it's a rigged system, but now i don't say it anymore because i won. okay. it's true. now i don't care. >> yeah, he doesn't care. he doesn't say it anymore. does he really believe this is a rigged system? >> well, i think you saw with all the wikileaks and the resignation of debbie wasserman schultz at the dnc in the primaries he was talking about how it was rigged against bernie sanders. the proof is clear that it was. i think a lot of conservatives and republicans across this country when they turn on their television and go across the cable networks, they do see a bias. there has been this moral
5:31 am
decision that donald trump is unacceptable and those who will support me like myself are somehow doing something bad for the country. they see that in the coverage over and over again. they don't think it's fair. the coverage of the clinton scandals does not equal even come close to the coverage of these scandals within the trump candidacy, i think they make a very fair point. >> all right. the point there you're making, though, is based on media. what trump tweeted out that there would be large scale voter fraud on election day, which is a very different argument. but let me come to you, alan. what do you make up what we've heard and seen from donald trump in the last several weeks and what we saw there from him back in may. >> i think this is a post defeat election strategy. i think that he is posturing himself for when he loses the election, he's going to be able to go around to his people and say, i'm not a loser. i'm a victim. now, in terms of the media rigging, people have to listen to radio talk shows.
5:32 am
i'm on radio talk shows all over the country because of my book "electile dysfunction." and on radio talk shows, almost every talk show host is in favor of donald trump. almost every listener who calls in is in favor of donald trump. so we have a split in the media. i agree that the national tv has generally favored hillary clinton or at least disfavored donald trump. but radio talk has become a major influence in america and that's highly biased toward donald trump. so, i think what we're seeing is he's getting ready to lose and he wants to lose in a way that allows him to claim victimhood rather than loser status because it would be inconsistent with his brand to be a loser. >> donald trump said at the debate, alan, earlier this week that he will keep the country in suspense. i want to take you back to 2008 when hillary clinton had her own moment of keeping the country in suspense. it was june 3rd, the night that barack obama got all of the
5:33 am
delegates necessary to get the nomination. and she knew when she took the podium that night that she had lost the primary fight. some expected that she would at least acknowledge that. here is what she said. >> where do we go from here? given how far we've come and where we need to go as a party, it's a question i don't take lightly. this has been a long campaign and i will be making no decisions tonight. >> she'll be making no decisions on that night. there really was no decision to make. she had an own moment of suspense for you. let me read to what you hillary rosen said about that moment. she had a chance to surprise the party and nation after the day-long denials about expecting any concession and send barack obama off on the campaign trail to the general election with the best possible platform. instead she left her supporters empty. obama's angry and party leaders trashing her. so, she has her own history here with leading people in suspense
5:34 am
after hearing the will of the voters. >> i think that's right. there's an enormous difference, though, between primaries and the ultimate election. we're talking about -- >> true. >> the president of the united states being certified by everybody short of the electoral college that comes later in december and a candidate saying i don't recognize the legit masy of the president saying -- >> hold on, matt. >> that he was born in kenya. so i think hillary made a mistake. i think she should have at that point embraced barack obama. remember the headlines today, too, that sanders' wife urged him not to support hillary clinton. so, you know, you get that in the primaries. but we've never had a situaton in a general election where after the votes are counted the loser says, it was rigged. i'm not bringing a legal claim, but i'm telling my supporters it was rigged. i'm not a loser, i'm a victim.
5:35 am
that's what i anticipate. and the hero will be pence because he won't stand for that. >> maurkts as i bring you back to this conversation, i have to say that wikileaks deleted that tweet about james sanders urging bernie sanders not to support hillary clinton. they pulled back on that. but that just came out. let me give it to you, matt, your reaction to what you heard from hillary clinton in 2008. >> look, hillary clinton in 2008 matter fact barack obama in 2008, victor, sent a letter to the authorities in nevada claiming voter suppression by the clinton administration, about the clinton campaign and the clinton campaign volleyed back with their own letter saying there was wrong doing going on in nevada. al gore was brought out of moth balls by hillary clinton most recently. al gore famous in history for even after the ballots were counted over and over and over again and i know because i spent 34 days in the florida recount, he didn't agree with the outcome of the election and took it to
5:36 am
court and took it to another court -- >> he didn't took it to court. it's bush versus gore. >> no. >> hold on. >> no the initial -- i know you're a law profession sor and i want to raid your book. it sounds very interesting. the fact is that there were all types of steps in this legal process including in the state of california. and that is what we know, which is the democrats here don't have clean hands. >> we got to wrap it there. alan dershowitz, matt slab, good to have both of you. here is the thing, when we look at the map right here, there is one that is glaring for a lot of people. historically red state of georgia. donald trump and hillary clinton are neck and neck among voters there. and a state that's voted republican for decades, seems to be up for grabs now. plus, asian americans are the fastest growing minority group, racial group, of any type in the u.s. and this election they're playing a major role in the key battleground state of florida.

40 minutes past the hour right now and let's talk about georgia right now. this is typically a solid red state. and voters are already casting their ballots in the race for the white house and in atlanta, constitution poll shows donald trump is leading hillary clinton, but look at that, by just two points. so really that puts it in a virtual dead heat among likely voters there. nick valencia is here and he spoke with some of the people who will be voting in georgia. and what a story. >> it's really interesting.
5:41 am
the changing dynamic of this traditionally red state. a family i spent with red, a registered democrat, but votes republican, but all this may be changing in georgia. it's a traditionally red state but it's slowly turning purple. it has two parts to it, newly influx of residents from out of state that vote democratic and it's also republicans who can't seem to bring themselves to vote for donald trump. >> reporter: it's friday, at this household. the sun hasn't even come up yet and they're already talking about their future. >> so do you want to try this avocado? >> they moved from virginia to georgia about two years ago. this will be their first presidential election as state residents. and it's people like them who are changing the historically red state purple. >> you can tell everybody is looking at him like, man, just end this. >> he is a conservative. he didn't vote for president
5:42 am
barack obama in 2008 or 2012 nor does he support democratic candidate hillary clinton, but he says he is voting for her any way. >> if it wasn't for the candidate that's running now, i probably would have voted for that other candidate than clinton. >> you would have voted republican. >> more than likely. >> what is it about her that's it's hard for you to totally accept her. >> the e-mails, benghazi stuff. being a military guy, you take all that into account. the e-mails, the security and all that. it's just like direct breeches and direct violations of the simple things they teach you even as a lower enlisted guy in the military. >> try it. it's good. >> smell it. it smells good. >> they are a house divided, while husband alberto usually votes republican and relies on his christian values, he says he can't bare to vote for trump, especially after what he said about latinos. his wife keisha has always voted democrat. her vote is guided by what she wants the future to look like for her 5-year-old son solomon. >> i'm very concerned about him and the future.
5:43 am
a minority male that's something that's just always on my mind. >> solomon might not yet understand the importance of his parents or the effect their votes could have in georgia burks he knows this much -- >> which color are you voting for? >> blue. >> little 5-year-old solomon, cute kid there. this family says they're a complicated family. she says she actually feels she's more conservative than her husband though she traditionally votes democratic and he traditionally votes republican. they both agree there's nothing that donald trump can say that will change their minds about him. >> nick valencia, great package. thank you. >> thank you. victor? >> it's the fastest growing racial group in america, asian americans. there is an historic shift happening in how they vote that could certainly impact the election. so i traveled to florida to talk to some of the voters about their feelings on the candidates, voter outreach and the issues that are driving their decisions. >> on the campus of the
5:44 am
university of nrt florida, politics is the topic of the day and most of these students will be voting for hillary clinton. >> i think ultimately like her vision for the united states, it kind of aligns with my vision of open mindedness, kind of accepting everyone. >> reporter: justin and his friends are at the leading edge of a seismic political shift among asian american voters from once reliable republican votes to a democratic stronghold. in the 1992 three-way race, republican president george h.w. bush earned 55% of asian american vote. 20 years later, democratic president barack obama got 73% over mitt romney. >> we have never seen a swing like that for any group. >> this is the director of the national asian american survey. >> democrats are far more likely to be reaching out to these voters than republicans. we also saw bill clinton do a lot in terms of outreach
5:45 am
activity and also nominating asian americans. >> and democrats hope that outreach will pay off this year as asian american voters could have an oversized impact in november. >> there are these new destination states, states like florida and other states like north carolina that are now battleground states for the presidency. these are the states where you have newer asian populations and they're growing very rapidly. >> at the top of the list, jacksonville, florida. it's mostly filipino community has the highest population of asian americans in any of the 2016 battleground states. most analysts say donald trump needs to win florida to win the white house. and it's this man's guide to find the votes. >> the statistics would show that democrats are doing very well recruiting asian americans. >> i think they appear to have very effective recruiting and i
5:46 am
would probably yield to that statement. i guess they have the support of what they hear, meaning the media. so, there's so much they hear from the media about the democrats, they would lean to that. >> we've also seen factors on the republican side that have pushed them away. >> when trump reiterated his proposal to ban immigrants from what he calls terrorist nations, he mentioned the philippines. >> hillary clinton wants to have them come in by the hundreds of thousands. >> soon after a philippines lawmaker proposed banning trump from entering their country. >> a majority of asian american registered voters have a very unfavorable view of donald trump. that should be very concerning to the republican party because it's possible that donald trump will turn off asian american voters even more. >> the survey found that 59% favor clinton and just 16% favor trump.

but there is opportunity for each party here. for these two voters, the choice is less about who they want to be the next president but more about who they don't. >> are you a trump supporter? >> i am a trump supporter. >> tell me why. >> i cannot be hillary. >> are you excited to vote for hillary clinton? >> i wouldn't necessarily say excited. just i'm excited not to vote for trump. >> here to talk about this, cnn political commentator mitt romney former policy director lenny chen. good morning to you. >> hey, victor, good morning. >> i want to illustrate for our viewers just how quickly and dramatically this change is happening. let's put up these numbers. this is from 2012 to 2016. i have to say some of these numbers are rounded. things don't add up exactly. there was a ten-point advantage for republicans in 2012,
5:48 am
18-point swing and now a 28-point advantage toward the democrats in just one cycle. 19 points, 20 points for the vietnamese. are we looking at solely the donald trump effect or is there something else happening here? >> i do think donald trump has something to do with this victor. clearly the rhetoric that he's used, the tone that he's used has been problematic to many new americans and that certainly includes nation americans. you have this in your package. there's been this shift since the presidency of george h.w. bush that's taken place over the course of two decades where asian americans have become increasingly democratic. there's a number of reasons for that which we can get into, but this particular shift has been pronounced as well because the political preferences in the asian community are much less well set, much less permanent than in some other communities

in the united states. >> there are laryngopercentages that lean toward a party or candidate instead of standing firmly with that group or behind the candidate. i've also read that you believe that the bias is america's colleges and institutions are also playing a role here. how so? >> one of the things that we've seen generally in politics is that individuals have more exposure to higher education. they do tend to be become more progressive and more liberal. that is certainly no exception for the asian american community. and so the argument moving forward and i've argued this, others have as well that some exposure to institutions learning exposures for example to faculty at many institutions of higher learning, particularly elite institutions of hire learning have driven particularly younger asian americans some that you've interviewed away from conservative politics and liberal politics. that trend is one worth watching as well. >> all right, lanhee chen thank
5:50 am
you for helping us understand this. 70% said they had been not been contacted by either major political party. we'll talk about that at 10:00 a.m. in cnn "newsroom." lanhee chen thank you so much. >> thank you. >> we'll be right back. >>uh, hello!? a meeting? it's a big one. too bad. we are double booked: diarrhea and abdominal pain. why don't you start without me? oh. yeah. if you're living with frequent, unpredictable diarrhea and abdominal pain, you may have irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhea, or ibs-d. a condition that can be really frustrating. talk to your doctor about viberzi, a different way to treat ibs-d. viberzi is a prescription medication you take every day that helps proactively manage both diarrhea and abdominal pain at the same time. so you stay ahead of your symptoms. viberzi can cause new or worsening abdominal pain. do not take viberzi if you have or may have had: pancreas or severe liver problems,
5:51 am
problems with alcohol abuse, long-lasting or severe constipation, or a blockage of your bowel or gallbladder. if you are taking viberzi, you should not take medicines that cause constipation. the most common side effects of viberzi include constipation, nausea, and abdominal pain. stay ahead of ibs-d... with viberzi. tthe whitenessmy wasn't there as much, my teeth didn't look as healthy as others. my dentist said that pronamel would help protect my teeth. pronamel is giving me the confidence to know that i'm doing the right thing so it's nice to know that it was as simple as that.
