9:00 am
welcome to inside politics. we'll take you straight out to a demonstration here in d.c. van jones speaking to a big rally on the national mall. day two of the trump administration, day one of the opposition. let's listen. >> get off tinder and get off grinder and get some real love because real love is the strongest stuff in the universe, am i right? real love is the strongest stuff
9:01 am
in the universe. the love army in this movement is built on that mama bear love. that mama bear loves those cubs and that mama bear not going to let you mess with those cubs. and this movement won't let you mess with the muslims, this movement's not going to let you mess with the dreamers, president trump. we're not going to let you mess with women, we're not going to let you mess with the et, we're not going to let you mess with black arrives marry. this movement is based on that kind of love. and let me say something. when you have a movement based on that kind of love, you can talk to people on both sides of the aisle. we love the conservatives enough to tell them that they have to be better conserve tatives than this.
9:02 am
real conservatives love the constitution. we have a president who seems to be an authoritarian. real conservatives stand up for and believe in clean government. we have a president who seems to be committed to a kleptocracy. real conservatives are patriotic. we have a president who isn't seem strong to america, he seems weak for russia. conservati conservatives, you have to do better than this. stand up to trump and be better conservatives than this. we hulove you enough to tell th you. and we also love you enough to say liberals and progressives, we have to be better will i lib and better progressives. we do. i'm tired of hearing us say love trumps hate but sometimes sound more hateful than trump.
9:03 am
i'm tired of us, and i've been guilty of it, putting down all a the red state voters and saying they're all stupid and uneducated. we have to stop that. just because somebody made a bad vote doesn't make them a bad person and it won't make us into bad people either. i'm not going let a bad vote makes become bad people. we'll fight for their dignity anyhow. we'll fight begins them on the bigotry, but we will fight no for their justice and their dig anity i dignity, as well. this movement as the opportunity to stand up for the underdogs in red and blue states, to stand up for the muslims and black folk and coalminers who will be thrown under the bus by donald trump. we'll stand up for them. all those rust belt workers who he's not messing with, he's about too mess over, we'll stand
9:04 am
up for them and we have to have position that's clear. when it gets harder to love, let's love harder. when it gets harder to love, let's love harder. i saw that movement that came into this town yesterday. they had red hats on. they were proud of their accomplishment. and they thought that they had taken america back. what they never counted on was a million women in pink hats that will take america forward. thank you very much. thank you very much. >> you've been referenlistening jones, a contributor here on cnn. and speaking at a woman's march here in washington. men are speaking also to this
9:05 am
rally. one of many marches away the around the world on the first full day of the presidency of donald trump. i'm john king in washington. welcome to inside politics. a lot of breaking news this hour. there are rallies as i said all around the country and the world. the new president of the united states also due to make his first official visit to a cabinet agency, to the cia. the agency he has criticized as president-elect. now he will make a visit there even though the congress has not yet confirmed his new cia director. let me introduce my panel. of the "new york times," "washington post" and manu oig as well. this morning the president began at this prayer breakfast. part ofs me the message was to unity. all denominations there.
9:06 am
on the first full day of the trump presidency where there was some call for unity in his speech, it was a remarkable speech, what message does this send what we're seeing right here in washington? we're seeing it all around the country and the world. what message does it send to the new president as he tries to begin governing? >> at a minimum we know that there will be no honeymoon period for this president. we have seen that with democrats in congress, as well. a bufshnch of them skipped the inauguration. what it tells us is that president trump -- i started to say president obama out of habit. >> first day, it's okay. >> president trump is going into office with historically low approval rating. somewhere between 37% and 40%. it's very hard to get that number up. and i think that his folks know that and they are basically know
9:07 am
cussed on preserving his movement. and this thing where he keeps reliving the primaries and campaign at these events last night that are open, that is about staying connected to his supporters. governing is different than campaigning. and he is going to discover this, that there is going to be an ongoing source of disruption to him. i don't know how it will play out. at the same time i was out this morning talking to a lot of the protesters here at the women's march in washington. and there are so many disparate agendas out there, so many women talking about different reasons why they're here at this march protesting away the around arou the world. whether it's veterans issues or planned parenthood. in some ways it means that the democrats are not necessarily speaking with one voice today. >> and i think it puts the democratic leadership in a difficult position if they want to cut deals with donald trump. a lot of folks are saying we
9:08 am
don't want to normalize donald trump even though he's the president of the united states. but the leadership in washington realizes that they have to do some things with him and so will they decide to become the opposition party in a relentless way. >> and here in washington and around the country and to some degree around the world, as well, to that point, it's complicated. easy to say it's anti-trump because it is anti-trump. some of the women originally envisioned this to protest the "access hollywood" tape. and a lot of things donald trump said to women earlier in his life that were beyond offensive. other people as you know are out in now, you saw elizabeth warren wearing a planned parenthood scarf because they believe the republican budget will cut funding for planned parenthood and perhaps do other things to take back from their perspective freedoms for women's pre-productive rights. other people are labor activists out there. so there are a lot of different pieces to this. >> and priorities. >> and priorities. my big question, is this venting
9:09 am
or is in the the beginning of organizing? >> it is the beginning of organizing, but there is not yet a clear structure or sense of priorities of what that anti-trump movement will look like. and that is in part because trump doesn't fit any kind of a conventional model as we think of in terms of a republican leader. he's got an agenda that is cross cutting. we heard it yesterday. that speech did not echo traditional conservative themes. and so the opposition to him will be scattereded f ed fofor but it's very solid in the opposition. through the campaign, he was never able to convince enough people that he was even qualified to be president. now, he won the election, but even after the election, there is half the country that still says he's not qualified. so it's so much focused on donald trump the person as opposed to this piece of his agenda or this part of his priorities. >> very important part because we're on day one and the trump
9:10 am
presidency will evolve in different ways. boston, trust me, that is unusual. chicago large crowds there, as well. let's go down on to the ground here. just tell us what is the flavor of what you're hearing and to the conversation we're just having here, is this about all just about donald trump personally, do you hear different priorities coming up? >> reporter: it's a combination of both. exactly the conversation that you're having. and some of these signs are going to answer those very questions. you're absolutely right. there are many issues that are being represented here by these different women. you see signs about peace, you see signs about reproductive rights, about climate change. even a sign that they are afraid. the unifying factor, though, the absolute unifying factor here in washington, d.c. is that they have come here so that they can be seen by donald trump.
9:11 am
they may have their different agendas, but they believe that that is what is going to keep the opposition together. you see all the pink hats. that again, what is that? what is the pink hat? for them, it is a sign of solidarity. so when you ask them a little further what will happen from this point, they say that they're going to take these pink hat, they will take the knowledge of this sea of pink that you're seeing, and all their different agendas, they will take to the grass roots level and they are going to become the tea party of the left. i've heard that rallying cry throughout the day, that they understand that they may be different than the way the tea party was in 2009, but that they are going to take some of those lessons and they are going to become the opposition at the grass roots level and this is just the beginning. so as you look at the sea of pink, it is here in the backyard, the donald trump's first day as -- first full day as president, that they are hoping that he is going to look
9:12 am
out his window and he will see all of these people. >> crowds mounting. we'll get the perspective from the new president of the united states in a moment. a quick break here. when we come back, protests in washington, chicago, boston. they're spreading west as the time zones change. first full day of the trump administration and you see the reaction. hey, how's it going? um... who are you? i'm val. the orange money retirement squirrel from voya. i represent the money you save for the future. see? we're putting away acorns to show the importance of being organized. that's smart. who's he? he's the green money you can spend now. what's up? oh you know, gonna pay some bills, maybe buy a new tennis racket.

9:16 am
reproductive rights are human rights. you need to know that starting this week, congress is going to be moving quickly to try to pass restrictions on reproductive access and we cannot let them. you need to call your member of congress, call your senator and say we will not go back. one of us can be dismissed, two can be ignored, but together we are a movement. and we are unstoppable. it is an honor to do this work long side inspiring leaders like the woman standing next to me. please welcome my friend kyra johnson of urge, unite for reproductive and gender equity. >> i see some nasty women out there. so nasty. i see some nasty boys out there,
9:17 am
too. janet would be so proud before. >> you're watching the rally before a woman's march here in washington. as company back in the studio here, essentially using donald trump's language from the campaign against him. cecile richards say that the republicans are preparing to pass a budget and they want to strip the funding to planned parenthood. and they're trying to fight it. and nasty woman was a term donald trump used in a debate against hillary clinton. if you were traveling the city today, you see a lot of signs or t-shirts with nasty women. it's political activism. one of the gifts of america. i guess the question is, we did see a reaction to the obama presidency that gave us the tea party that ended up giving their own party more fits than anybody probably. what are we do make of this not
9:18 am
just the timing of it, but the message? >> the tea party analogy is really interesting because that's the same one that president obama made in a closed door meeting with democrats right after the election saying if they try to appeal obamacare, we should organize the way that they did during the tea party movement. and go to town halls, storm these members particularly ones who are in difficult re-election races, put them on the spot if they try to -- as they try to move down the process of appealing obamacare. we'll see if they are successful thp approa in that approach. an while there will be a big push in the house to get rid of funding for planned parenthood, there are moderate senate republicans who are opposed to that idea including lisa murkowski of alaska. so one, you will see massive democratic opposition to some of these efforts, but two, it will
9:19 am
be difficult to get a lot of things that donald trump and conservatives want because of divisions within the party. >> and moving west here, you see denver now as the time zones change, huge crowds in denver, as well. they're this boston, new york, chicago. a very impressive crowd in denver. my question is this, if you look at the history of the eight years of the obama presidency, these crowds are great, but you have to win at the ballot box and the democrats did not. whether the house, senate, governors races or state legislatures where democrats lost 1,000 seats during the obama presidency. >> what is so fascinating about these marches today is that it's very multigenerational. and what is a really interesting question here is whether donald trump sg cause this sort of resurgence in feminism. there were a lot of women out there who are talking about the idea of passing on the torch to their daughters who are not at all involved in political activism. if you do have multiple
9:20 am
generations getting more focused on some of these planned parenthood and abortion issues on the way that they weren't before, that would be really interesting during donald trump's presidency. >> the irony of that also would be that hillary clinton was not able to kind of stoke that enthusiasm across the generations. and if it now happens post-reaction, take take wouhat remarkable thing. >> i think the rallies will be potentially pervasive on the white house, but less clear how it will play in congress. i do think that ivanka trump will see this. her personal brand and her interests are all about women's issues. she has been interested in pl planned parenthood. you did hear donald trump defend the work of planned parenthood. from a republican debate stage, pretty unusual, i do think that she will see this and see potential danger for her father,
9:21 am
for her own self and possibly lean on him. >> so you raise one of the great defining capital cue questions of the trump presidency. who has his ear. because as you well know, i thought you were going to him, an excellent point about ivanka trump. but you know if the past is proce prologue, when donald trump sees this, his tendency is to hit back. i'm say ta it as this is my first full day and you're doing this. >> i think it might be true and it might not be true. you've listened to him. it has clearly been impressed upon him that he should not expect that he will get some kind of a galvanizing welcome from people who did not vote for him. i think a lot of that is baked in. i think he may hit back for a while, but when he sees his approval rating flashed on the screens, that will impact him, too. >> it will be interesting if he goes on a tweet storm against
9:22 am
these protesters the way he did right after the election or maybe he takes a step back and recognize that there is this significant opposition to him and try to do something in a more unifying way. >> protests actually capturing our attention. i believe we have it. we're wactching a lot of rank ad file people. do they organize in their communities when they go home? do they vote, do they get involved? but among the people helping guide the protests are some people who might be ambition of their own. elizabeth warren spoke in boston. hopefully we can listen to her a little bit. sorry, we don't have that sound. she was talking about fighting. don't just march, but fight,
9:23 am
stay in the fight. is there a chance that out of these rallies -- we knew elizabeth warren would be one of them, but who are the leading voices of the democrats at this moment and is there a risk -- you could make the argument whether you're a political science professor or the president, hey, give me a chance. >> i think that is a legitimate point. there have been honeymoons before. he is not getting any benefit of the doubt. i think you could make the argument that the way he conducted his candidacy is a good reason. >> and that is the real risk. remember, the dems talking point for the first four years when mitch mcconnell made those comment that's wanted to make president obama a first team president. they said he never gave us a chance and that is the challenge now. you will hear that talking point
9:24 am
be repeated over and over again from people in the trump world. >> don't you think that is simply the nature of politics today? sort of give no quarter on either side. and i think that both sides have come to almost accept that that is the way they have to operate. and if he pushes barks they will push back more. so i don't see a likelihood of some way in which one side or the other will embarrass the opponent into operating in a different way. >> and it's also such a huge yes. who will be the leading lights of the democratic party going forward. you have harris who will speak at this march in washington if she hapsn't already. does it go from one generation to the other. that is still unclear. >> and if you're surprised by the polarization, you've been asleep. we're taking a quick break. we'll also take you to the president's first full day in office. a prayer service this morning. he's visiting the cia later
9:25 am
today and his team is starting to take place including over at the pentagon. your insurance company

9:28 am
welcome back to inside politics oig. we continue to keep our eye on protests here in washington and across the country. but it's an important day for the president. he woke up in the white house for the first time, attended a traditional prayer service at the national cathedral. jeff zeleny was there this morning. and jeff, for the president, these rallies across washington and across the country, a very different mood at the cathedral, right? >> reporter: it was indeed. there was a mood of a prayer here and of course it was one of those rare moments where a president and the vice president were sitting in solitude not talking but listening. and there were a lot of messages
9:29 am
throughout this hour long or so service this morning. a lot of messages about the divide in this country. i was struck in particular from cardinal weurl. he said save us from violence, discord and confusion, from pride and arrogance, and from evening in every way. that word arrogance was used by my count three times by different members of the clergy here. and there have been some protests here in the days before about even having this event which happens every day after the inaugural. but the dean of this cathedral, the reverend, said that it was important to pray for the country and to show civility going forward here. so certainly struck by that moment and donald trump also in his first full day of his presidency is watching his administration in some forms take shape. we saw the new defense secretary
9:30 am
james mattis entering the pentagon, taking his position there. and this afternoon we are going to see the president visit the cia. he's expected to make remarks this afternoon there, certainly his divide with intelligence officials and intelligence agencies have been front and center through his transition here. so as the protests are going on in washington, now donald trump is at the white house, he is likely watching these. he did not see them earlier when he was here at the came these tral, but that could also impact his day and how he views what is going on here in washington and inteed away the world. >> jeff, thank you very much. let's come back into the studio. first full day of the administration. democrats are slowing done on some of the other nominees. part of their argument is they say the trump team wasn't ready, but part of it is it is agreements. mike pompeo the deal now is will
9:31 am
they will have six hours of debate on monday and vote monday night. mitch mcconnell says, hey, the cia, donald trump will visit the cia today, but this is about policy differences. they say in the pain every work to the committee we will break no lois, but they say pompeo has said i won't break the law, but i must test the law. what can we do to expand the surveillance program. president obama i think had seven on day one. two for donald trump. what's the impact? >> this is the fewest amount of nominees that any president has had on the first day in office since george h.w. bush in 1989. the impact being that it could slow down elements of donald trump's agenda. again, not having his team in place, he can issue executive orders, put their open people underneath them and begin to drive a policied a jen today and
9:32 am
it could slow down action in the senate. you can only do one thing at a time on the floor of the senate. so you bring up a nomination that takes days and days, that pushes back other aspects. democrats don't want to give quick approval on eight nominees ranging from health and human services to treasury. and if they drag the process out, it kind paimpact that. but trump will eventually get his team. they don't have the votes to stop it, but they can frustrate the process. >> and also remember the second tier below the cabinet level, we know from trump officials that many of those positions, the second, third assistant secretaries, people who do the managing of these departments are also not in place yet. so a huge simultaneous challenge that the trump administration has as it's hiring droves of people. >> in some ways more important than the cabinet secretaries in terms of the day to day
9:33 am
management. one of the things the president-elect did was he issued his first executive order about policy. and it was instructing federal agencies that you now have my permission if you want to sort of change obamacare. it says within the law, but if you want to give new wavers to the states, new waivers to the insurance agencies, maybe to individuals.ivers to the states, new waivers to the insurance agencies, maybe to individuals. democrats say that he will crate case or chaos. why is this first? >> because this is the issue i think most important to congressional republicans. paul ryan has made it clear this is where they want to start and have campaigned on. and it's not exactly clear what is going to come of this executive order. we just know he that this begins the process. there is still a lot of runway for this to move. but this was basically about a keeping a pledge to the base. the trump badly needs with those approval ratings and to keep congressional republicans happy. and one other point about pompeo and what happened with that vote
9:34 am
being delayed. remember that trump's folks put out word that he was going to the cia today and go to attend that swearing in. he is still going there with pompeo. i think that is going to basically end up bhkbecome a rallying cry. he will basically say i want to work, i can't believe they're holding up my cia director. this is a presidential nominee, they have no real reason to be doing this. we are already starting off on that foot. it's quite something. >> the flip side of the recent debate we've had about should a the cia be involved this political debates. i think they will be today. i want to take you back down to the rally. the freshman senator just elected, cam la harris, a rising star. let's listen. >> treated as equals. founded on the ideals that guarantee every person's right to worship freely without
9:35 am
intrusion, founded on ideals where our immigrant communities represent the heart and soul what have it means to be an american. and when i look out at this incredible crowd today, i know one thing. even if you're not sitting in the white house, even if you are not a member of the united states congress, even if you don't run a big corporate super pac, you have the power. and we the people have the power. one thin and there is nothing more powerful than a group of determined sisters marching alongside with their partners and their determined sons and brothers and fathers standing up
9:36 am
for what we know is right. and we know that it is important for this nation to prioritize women's issues. and here's what i'm talking about. when i was first elected district attorney in san francisco or attorney general of california or united states senator from the state of california, in each of those positions, i was elected as the first woman or the first woman of color. and folks would come up to me and say kamala, talk to us about women's issues. and i'd look at them and i'ded say i'm so glad you want to talk about the economy.
9:37 am
great, let's talk about the economy because that's a woman's issue. i'd say you want to talk about women's issues? let's talk about national security. you want to talk about women's issues? that's fantastic. let's talk about health care, let's talk about education, let's talk about criminal justice reform. let's talk about climate change. because we all know the truth. if you are a woman trying to raise a family you know that a good paying job is a woman's issue. if you're a woman who is an immigrant who does not want her family torn apart, you know that immigration reform is a woman's issue. if you are a woman working off
9:38 am
student loans, you know the crushing burden of student debt is a woman's issue. if you are a black mother trying to raise a son, you know black lives is a woman's issue. >> listening to kamala harris speaking at a march here, a rally before a large here in washington. pregame program under way now. and then there will be a march. you see the pictures from washington here. there are sister demonstrations you might call them alling a cross the country in boston, chicago, denver and elsewhere. we'll keep an eye on those. we're also keeping an eye on the president about to make a trip to cia headquarters in langley, virginia. it's the phillips' lady! anyone ever have occasional constipation,diarrhea, gas or bloating? she does. she does. help defend against those digestive issues. take phillips' colon health probiotic caps daily

download the xfinity tv app today. elections are always about change, but not always of the magnitude we experienced yesterday. the 44th president was the nation's first african-american leader. just 55 years old after eight years in the white house. the 45th president is of a different party, a different generation, and very different view of the country and america's place in the world. >> from this day forward, it's going to be only america first. america first. every decision on trade, on
9:43 am
taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs will be made to benefit american workers and american families. i will fight for you with every breath in my body and i will ne never ever let you down. >> that is president trump during his inauguration address yesterday. republican president but hardly a prp speerepublican speech. it was rebuke of all politicians. kn project america strength, it didn't sound like that. >> and dan wrote several months ago that he is our first i said president. there was nothing actually surprising if you have been covering donald trump throughout this campaign. and yet once it is said from the mouth of a president, it is very
9:44 am
different. we don't quite now what america first is going to look like under this president. i was very struck by his line and it really is in line with his view he has of the world in a class of civilizations right now. he talked about the civilized world joining to fight radical islamic terrorism. he is clearly looking toward an alliance with russia on isis. this has a lot of people very nervous and i don't know what it will look like. it is at minimum for trump a very clear opening extreme shot. he usually tends to do that and work a little bit of the way back, but he also have a pretty dark view of where things are xleb globally. american carnage he talked about. i want to listen to a little bit more of this. a lot of you at home probably saw it yesterday, but here is
9:45 am
donald trump again this is his first agent as president. he's standing on the steps of the capitol surrounded by the former presidents, surrounded by the members of congress, he's here in washington. and he essentially told them all it's your fault. >> for too long, a small group in our nation's capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have born the cost. washington flourished, but the people did not share in its wealth. politicians prospered, but the jobs left and the factories closed. the establishment protected itself. but not the citizens of our country. their victories have not been your victories. their triumph s have not been your triumph s.
9:46 am
that all changes starting right here and right now. because this moment is your moment. it amobelongs to you. >> so that is what i call the outside game. only thing he didn't do was turn around and say i mean you. and start pointing at the people and saying i mean you. you did this and you did this. you're the problem. but then just minutes after he finishes the speech, let's look at the scene inside. he's signing the documents inside and he's yucking it up with chuck schumer, with nancy pelosi, the members of the republican leadership, as well. essentially they were trading pens. chuck schumer initially got the ben carson pep and he said can i trade it in for either veterans affairs secretary because i like him more. this is the art of the deal donald trump. so which is it? outsider saying you're part of the problem or how much of is this skillset going to be more important to getting anything

done. yes, the republicans run everything, but just barely in terms of the numbers in the majority. >> i think maggie's point is right. he lays down markers and then walks them back a bit and then he lays them down again. that worked very well in the campaign. it will be much more difficult for him to do that as president because he will have to begin to deliver. this was an extraordinary expression of ambition and of self-confidence that we heard yesterday in addition to everything else that has been said about this remarkable speech. and the extravagance of the language will hit the reality of governing pretty soon and at that point can he still continue to hold that core support that he was speaking to yesterday. he wasn't speaking really to the whole country. he was speaking to the core trump supporter. he needs to hold on to them, but he will have to govern and govern a much messier process. >> and the question is whether the people tune out the
9:48 am
rhetoric, his fwootweet storms. right after he was signing those papers, he went into statutory hall where they had the lunch and i was watching part of that and they were yucking it up in there. he was in a very intense conversation with chuck schumer which we learned later was about nominees. and there was obviously some dispute there. he wasn't able to resolve any sort of stalemate there, schumer coming out to the floor railing on donald trump's first moves, regulatory moves on a hud regulation as well as not relinquishing the opposition to key nominees. so the question is does this make a difference the fact that democrats or even his own party when he starts saying these things, attacking both sides in his campaign speeches. >> but the rhetoric was so appealing not just to his supporters, but some of those lines were the same kind of message we might have heard from bernie sanders or the democratic side. and it was just such a stunning rebuke of the people sitting
9:49 am
behind him. and not just president obama, but george w. bush, building up infrastructure, that appeals to a lot of people out there and that will be his sweet spot if he can pull it off. >> one thing we should add, too, sh schumer's speech squawas not exy a come together, it was essentially a party doctrine. and much more so than we have heard in a while. so i understand what schumer is doing. but if you're trump, you hear that and you say you're only yelling at me about why we're not doing things together. that is an understandable point. >> and when schumer was speaking, you could hear boos back here. the ticketing people were the vich vips. but we have to take a quick break. you're watching the rallies in chicago, in washington, boston, denver. we'll continue to keep an eye on these protests.

for the inaugural yesterday. we'll see if we get any official estimates. but yesterday, one of your colleagues tweeted pictures, the 2009 inauguration of then senator became president obama. and crowds yesterday to make the point that the crowds in 2009 were unmistakably bigger. we're learning this morning that the trump administration sent a message, it was retweeted by the national park service and the trump administration sent word to stop that, told them to stay off twitter until they got further guidance from the new administration. what does that tell you about the new administration? >> i have to be candid, i can't imagine that obama would have enjoyed it if the park service official twitter feed had done something similar around his inauguration and compared him to bush. so i'm not surprised. they had another tweet thorn
9:55 am
that said we regret the tweets yesterday. i think that the problem with trump often is that he often has a point when he's reacting to something, it's just the scale is outsized. so the message that went out reportedly is shut all the twitter feeds down associated with the park association, however this is not -- i think that if everything gets a shocked reaction, it will make the legitimate shocks seem less serious. >> and he is the boss. he's the new president of the united states. >> i don't think any other president would be okay with that is all i'm saying. >> one thing is to see if there is push back within the federal agencies, a lot of whom are not donald trump supporters who are more democratic leaning. how many whistleblowers there are, leaks to the president. >> and there are a lot of ways for the bureaucracy to undermine the leadership of the country beyond tweets. >> i was at one of the balls

when donald trump said he would continue or asked the question but rhetorically if he should continue on twitter. and i want to show you the tweet from the son of michael flynn jr., what victory. women already have equal rights and yes equal pay. what more do you want? freem mani/pedis? i would just say this, general flynn, you might want to ask your son -- >> never a good idea to bring up mani/pedis. >> we'll close on that note. i'm the guy in this conversation. i'll stay out of it. thanks for joining us. a lot to cover on this first full day of the trump administration. wolf blitzer right here after a quick break.
