tv   Anderson Cooper 360  CNN  January 16, 2017 10:30pm-11:01pm PST

10:30 pm
washington. joining us gloria borger. in terms of ivanka trump, she doesn't have an actual official title, correct? >> no, not yet. >> in the white house. but clearly, she has an important role for donald trump. i mean, she's somebody who has his ear and is a major adviser. >> right. we don't know if she's going to have an office in the west wing. she's decide at least now, let jared go work there. but eventually, whether she's inside the white house, anderson, or she remains outside the white house, she is going to be her father's gut check. there's no doubt about it. he leans on her. he listens to her. she offers her advice freely. they don't always agree as she said in the piece. but i think she will always be there when he wants somebody to say, you know what, do you think about this because she is so loyal and she has no other agenda as family members are. that is what he thinks is so
10:31 pm
important. >> well, and obviously, he prizes loyalty and we've seen that before. >> yep. >> some have been criticl confident role jared kushner, ivanka trump play. i mean, why shouldn't a president have people who he feels are loyal to him and who more loyal than his kids? other people, bill clinton, you know, leaned on hillary clinton to do health care. >> that's right. and ronald reagan leaned on nancy reagan. but if you recall, there were an awful lot of problems inside the white house because people went to nancy reagan to get to the president and they didn't want to get on nancy reagan's bad side. if you're in a meeting and you're the white house chief of staff reince brie priebus and within jared kushner or ivanka trump and the president, it's very difficult to disagree some would say because they are first among equals. i think this can cause a problem in the white house. ivanka for now though, is backing off. dealing with her issues behind the scenes.
10:32 pm
she's dealing with people behind us on capitol hill about child care, tax credits and her issues. but on a personal level, i think she will be one of the last voices the president listens to when he needs to make decisions. >> gloria borger, thanks very much. from one upcoming first daughter to the two now leaving, coming next, a look back at sasha and malia obama's first time in the white house and where they go from here and later a major development in the wake of the orlando mass killings. why police have arrested the attacker's widow. wis that they contourt tempur-peto your body.s... it keeps us comfortable and asleep at night. start the new year off right with the best sleep of your life.

10:34 pm
like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made eliquis the right treatment for me. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you.

10:36 pm
well, ivanka trump will soon be a very different kind of first daughters. we'll be watching her work with her dad, talking about her policy positions where she stands in the competition for the president's time. it's a sharp contrast to how we saw the outgoing first daughters. eight years ago, sasha and malia obama were very young for policy make package.more from randi kaye on that. >> daddy, what city are you? >> reporter: they were just 7 and 10, two little girls from chicago who captured the nation's heart in an instant. sasha and malia obama were officially introduced at the 2008 democratic national convention. >> i love you, daddy. >> reporter: and on election night, they were at their father's side celebrating. with their move to washington, d.c., the obama girls basement youngest children to live in the white house in decades.
10:37 pm
>> i joke that my first job is going to be mom in chief. because with little kids, you know, i have to make sure their feet are on the ground. >> reporter: sasha and malia attended sidwell friends school and their parents insists they do their homework, make their own beds and pick up after their new puppy beau. there were always strict rules. >> we don't let them watch tv or use the computer except to do homework during the week. at the 2009 inauguration sasha signalled her approval. years later in 2013, there was the yawn seen around the world, sasha caught on camera during his second in-in-law ral peach. after he took the official oath of office that year, camera microphones picked up sasha telling her dad, good job. you didn't mess up. >> i did it. >> you didn't mess up. >> reporter: older sister malia liked to needle her dad too in one case giving him advice how to greet her friends.
10:38 pm
>> he's like hi and he shook her hand. i was like you know, daddy you really don't shake you know kids' hands that much. >> reporter: over the years, the girls enjoyed the privileges that came along with being first daughters. flying on air force one, front row seats for selfies at inaugural parades and singing is christmas carrolls with justin bieber and other celebrities. there were also trips around the world. london and milan. and china. south africa, they visited nelson mandela, the girls are now 15 and 18. malia got her driver's license after being taught how to drive by the secret service. there was even talk of her dating. > dates, that's fine because she's got secret service protection. >> reporter: marleyia has plans tons attend harvard. her younger sister will finish out school at sidwell friends. their dad paid tribute to them in his final public speech in
10:39 pm
chicago. >> of all that i've done in my life, i'm most proud to be your dad. >> randi kaye, cnn, new york. two young women we have watched become young women. perspective every presidential historian douglas brinkley along with our dana bash. the obama daughters spent their childhoods growing up in the white house and as much as the press tries to give them space, it's still enormous pressure. >> absolutely. even though they were born in chicago, it's not their hometown. washington, d.c. is. and in some ways it's going to continue to be the first family is staying there in the kalorama area. sasha will be continuing to go to school here. this is all they know and imagine a childhooded with secret service watching everything you do, whether you were in the treehouse in the white house or whether you were wandering the lawn or on a date, somebody was kind of watching you. >> it was interesting detail the secret service teaching her how to drive. >> yeah. >> they called her radiance, the
10:40 pm
secret service that her nickname. i thought that was one of the better nicknames they've given to somebody because she's so radiant when you see her. >> i think i saw michelle obama talking to oprah saying she didn't allow the kids to complain been sort of being in the white house at their age because it's such an extraordinary experience. >> yeah. absolutely. and look, it's one thing to say that and to have that rule. but neither of you has this experience. i was a teenage girl. and it's hard enough without the cameras on you. you know, we saw amy carter. we saw chelsea clinton and now the obama daughters go through this. and you know, go through those tough years never mind sort of the transformation but also just the way that girls and boys but particularly girls are so you know, upset about everything that goes on and to have the
10:41 pm
spotlight on you is pretty remarkable and to watch the way that they have done so well, we don't know wa what happens wa behind closed doors but the fact that they haven't rebelled in the way i don't know i did as a teenager, maybe did too is remarkable. >> you think about the social media for kids today which is such a huge difference than my generation. >> yeah. >> and they were able to avoid you know, some sort of social media disaster of instagram or twitter or whatever. >> that's 0 so true. >> barack obama and michelle obama are pleasing parents. one of the finest things they did was showing america how to raise kids in such a difficult circumstance. they're a beloved first family. that's going to continue. we'll have to see, they never seem to have the angst to their parents. amy carter used to rebel against jimmy carter and turn more to the left. maureen reagan and some of his kids were as logger heads with that.
10:42 pm
we never saw that. >> when you think about him, it's one of the things both for president obama but also for president-elect trump, you know, even people who disagree with donald trump even during the campaigns would point to his kids as being you know, amazing representatives of him and the family. >> i thought that clip of you they just show on the documentary of ivanka whether he you were interviewing trump and the trump family is one of donald trump's better moments. >> thattown haul did he. >> bun believable because he kind of was quiet and stayed back a little and let the family dynamic play out. that gave him a bounce. >> and look with, all politicians particularly presidents since they rein our living rooms every day, the fact that they have families make them relatable. when they have families who are seemingly successful and sweet and you know, people ho we look up to and want our daughters and sons to be like is a good thing. these people are human beings.
10:43 pm
and the fact that you know we au that documentary from gloria on ivanka and we're talking about barack obama and michelle obama's kids is a good reminder of that. >> very nice that the george w. bushs' dog wrote letters to sasha and malia for making that adjustment which has to be a surreal adjustment to suddenly being outside the bubble for the first time in their lives. dana, thanks. doug brinkley, as well. come up, complaints filed against trump's pick for treasury secretarying he once own aid bank that may have discriminated against minorities. he's not the only pick now under fire. later the wife of the orlando nightclub shooter has been arrested. what did she know about the killings? details ahead. [john] hey, here's an idea. what if instead of waiting weeks for your tax refund? you can get an advance on that refund. [zombie] an advance on my tax refund, i could really use that.
10:44 pm
[john] what would you do with that money? [zombie] i'd love to take a tropical holiday. [john] i'd be careful, with your skin tone. [zombie] no i get it cause i'm a zombie. yeah that's funny.

these red dots represent bank branches. they are located where white people live and very few blacks latinos or asians. >> we saw that between 2014, 2015, for example, they made two loans to >> we saw that between 2014, 2015, they made two loans to african-americans. if you look at a map of their branches, they basically do not have branches in communities of color. >> if you think that sounds low, it's precisely what the government reported from its database. gonzalez' study revealed 83% of the banks mortgage lending went to whites. far more than the industry average. and less than 2% of their loans went to blacks. far less than industry average. sherry jackson has been a real estate agent in downtown los angeles for three decades. she says she met steve mnuchin

10:52 pm
he bought them for one reason. he knew he could make money on them. it was all business, had nothing to do with race, red lining or denying any minority group access to banking, had to do with making good business decisions. precisely says the transition official why steve mnuchin is trump's pick to run the treasury department. coming up, her husband committed the deadliest mass shooting in u.s. history. now she herself is under arrest. there's a meteor hurtling towards earth. how long until impact? less than a minute. what do you want to do, sir? listen carefully... if we all switch to geico we could save 15% or more on car insurance. i like the sound of that. geico. because saving fifteen percent or more on car insurance is always a great answer.

10:59 pm
>> her attorney released a statement today after her arrest saying, she had no foreknowledge nor could she predict what omar mateen intended to do that tragic night. she told her story of abuse at his hands. we believe it is misguided and wrong to prosecute her. and it dishonors the memories of the victims to punish one of his victims, an innocent person. she will have her first court appearance tomorrow morning in california. anderson? >> thanks, pam. it's a waning moon tonight. perhaps that is fitting, in some ways a full moon in all its beauty and familiarity would remind us of a wish unfulfilled for gene cernan. apollo 10, gene cernan died today at the age of 82. he wished by now the moon would be a regular destination. if he had his way, we may not be remembering him at all tonight. if captain cernan had his wish, he would not be famous for being the last person to whack on the
11:00 pm
moon 4 1/2 decades ago. by now, he'd be one of many. perhaps one day soon, he will. our thoughts are with him, his family and his friends, that does it for us. thanks for watching. "cnn tonight" with don lemon starts now. in just four days donald trump stands right behind me at the u.s. capitol, raises his right hand and becomes the 45th president of the united states. but in a show of protest, more than two dozen house democrats skipping his inauguration. this is "cnn tonight" i'm don lemon in washington. the boycott, partly in response to trump's harsh words against john lewis, the civil rights icon, who says trump is not a legitimate president. and on this day, honoring dr. martin luther king jr., trump meets with dr. king's son who is calling for unity.
