tv Varney Company FOX Business March 8, 2016 9:00am-12:01pm EST
have a great day, that will do it for us. "varney & company" begins now, stuart, over to you. stuart: monday night, specialist economic nonsense from bernie and hillary. tuesy moing,rumpuns rongor rublins i michan a so es jn kach. goodorni, stt wi las nit's wn hl inetro, mecareor a, th's bnie nder you'll never have to borrow for college, that's hillary clinton. tax wall street and the rich to pay for it all. know the a word about growing the economy and, please, ignore the debt. that's the democrat's pitch, we heard it last night. republican pitching for delegates. they're voting in four states. trump leads, but watch the anti-trump establishment organize to stop him. closed door meetings with billionaires, they will spend big to stop it. and watch kasich's late surge and rubio's sharp decline.
the question for you, does sharapova deserve to lose millions. she missed a drug change with a "varney & company," we're about to begin. ♪ we'll start with your money, it looks like a slightly lower opening for the stock market this morning. you can blame more weakness out of china, their exports down, their imports down. but you know, a pullback after five straight days of gains, it's not that surprising. we will be down 50 points. the price of oil holding in the best levels of the year yesterday. this morning, still above $38 per barrel. and how about the big tech names which clearly dominated the market all of last year, not this year. they were down big yesterday. netflix was down 6% yesterday. it will open a little bit lower this morning.
facebook was down 2% yesterday, it opened a little lower again today. amazon, again, down 2% yesterday and right now, it's going to open up a little lower. again, same story with google, down 2% and this morning, it opens lower. so all of those big tech names are going to be a bit lower at the opening bell in 28 minutes. let's get back to politics. >> to the democrats, town hall. what i'm calling economic, socialist nonsense. freebies from health care to college. roll tape. >> i happen to believe and i know not everybody agrees with me, i believe that health care is a right of all people, i believe that this is something wrong when we are spending-- >> excuse me, where did that right come from in your mind? >> being a human being. and i believe, we you may disagree with me, i believe if she is poor and you are rich, she is entitled to the same quality health care that you have because she's a human being.
>> i want too see public colleges and universities tuition free. i want to create millions of jobs. >> i'm a big supporter and defender of the affordable care act. i'm going to get the costs down. we're going to get out of pocket costs down, we're going to get deductibles down. we're going to require more free services within the benefit package. i have a plan to do that debt-free tuition, more help for nontuition costs. stuart: the list came on. i came on strong, economic nonsense. that's my opinion. kristin is here, former miss usa. got that right? >> miss america. stuart: miss america. one day-- >> that's all right. stuart: i'm coming on strong here, economic socialist nonsense, that's my opinion. how did we get here. how did we get to the point that the two candidates for the presidency of united states of america are both basically socialists? >> because that's their philosophy, right? a lot of americans don't think
in those terms and they want someone who promises them free goodies that's going to solve the problems. they don't realize there's a clear ideology and philosophy behind this. you can see it in what bernie sanders said when bret asked him, where do the rights come from? he said, well, i'm a human being. >> no, this country was founded on a document called the constitution and believed a lot of our founders were christians and man born rights from god that government doesn't create rights, if they create rights, they can take them away. stuart: thanks for all of this. the rich wall street, i mean, bernie sanders in particular is running against bankers, wall street, insurance companies, bailouts, and that's what he's running against and kind of almost like a strawman that he's erected here. let's everybody hate wall street and everything will be fine. >> and so much of what does drive economic growth in this country is a free market, is a place where people and companies and various venture
capital firms can have money to invest in new businesses, small businesses, if they're taxed out of existence-- >> the big evil corporations and bankers. stuart: wise beyond her hers. >> once the millennials get in the work force and see what 50% looks like on their paychecks, they'll change their minds. stay right there. let's get to the republican side, donald trump launching an attack ad against marco rubio in florida. roll it. >> as a legislator, he flipped on a key vote after making a $200,000 selling his house to the mother of the bill's lobbyist. he used the republican party's credit card to pave his driveway, and to live it up in las vegas. stuart: and he goss on and on and on. ashley: i love that it's black and white, ominous, his
idaho and hawaii. governor mike huckabee is with us right now. all right, governor. mr. trump is in the lead in three of those states, michigan in particular. by the end of this day, do you think that it's a two-man race and that trump is solidifying his lead. is that how you're reading today's action? >> well, i think it could be stuart, but i think that john kasich is certainly going to stay through ohio. if marco rubio continues to
done by the inner circle elites who are ignoring the pain of americans. stuart: i've got it. i'm pushing, tilting towards trump, governor huckabee, yes or no? >> i am not taking an endorsement position. i'm just not. not going to try to play the mitt romney role right now. stuart: tilting? >> look, i like trump, let me tell you something, i like trump. i don't dislike him. he's smart and outplaying his opponents and including me, he outplayed me, okay, there you go. stuart: governor, great to have you on the show, thank you very much, i appreciate it. >> thank you. stuart: by the way, our fox business coverage starts tonight at 7:eastern. lou dobbs followed by neil cavuto. what's described as a cast of thousands. now this, what a story, a jury had awarded sports caster erin andrews, $55 million in a lawsuit against the national marriott hotel and a man who secretly recorded and posted a video of her on-line. ash, first of all, give me the break down of the money and
then i want to pass judgment on this. ashley: okay. she wanted $75 million and she was awarded 55 million, split it between the hotel's responsibility, the stalker 51%, hotel 49%. so, she would get not one penny from the stalker, forget that. so we're down to around 27 million and they'll probably negotiate that down to 20 million, that's the expectation that she'll get from the hotel for their role in this. the lawyers, they get 40%, so that's 8 million. leaves her 12, cost a million to put it together and 11 and because she didn't suffer physical injuries, just emotional, it's taxable. so, she'll end up with 6 million out of 55. stuart: oh. i want to pass judgment because i think one of the worst things you could possibly do to a young woman, absolutely. ashley: she's suffered with depression and many others. stuart: certainly would. thanks, everybody. much more on the democrat town hall on fox news last night.
hillary clinton finally facing direct questions on the e-mail scandal. she says the whole matter is absurd. judge napolitano on his way to respond to this. >> i will reiterate, because it's a fact, nothing i said or received was marked classified. release it. and once the american people see it, they will know how absurd this is. s smarter entry and exit points
>> first out of block to somalia, more than 150 al-shabaab fighters were killed in a u.s. air strike. it came as the terrorists, apparently, stood in formation at what's called a graduation ceremony. the pentagon says the camp was prepared to conduct a large scale attack against u.s. and africa forces sometime in the future. got it. and the fox news town hall last night, hillary clinton answered specific questions about her e-mail problem. roll tape. >> the state department has
redacted and declared 2101 of your work e-mails classified at least at confidential level. 44 classified as secret, 22 class side as top secret so you said in a march press conference in 2015 quote, i did not e-mail any classified material. >> here is what happens, the state department has a process for determining what is or isn't classified. if they determine it is, they mark it as classified. >> well, who decides? >> the state department decides. >> what about you when you are typing an e-mail. >> no, the state department decides. >> your contention now is 2101 e-mails contained information that should be classified at any time, should now or then, shouldn't have been classified? >> well, what i'm saying, it wasn't at the time. stuart: okay. answers to specific questions, judge napolitano is here, you've heard all of this. >> i'm smiling because she forgets who her audience is.
her audience is 100 fbi agents and the justice department investigating her. and they know she is lying when she answers the question to bret baier when she says for the umpteenth time i never sent nor received anything classified. nothing is marked classified. the markings are confidential, secret, or top secret. so, while the statement is technically correct, i never sent nor received anything marked classified, it is highly misleading. it is materially misleading. second point, on her first day in office, she received a two hour tutorial from two fbi agents explaining to her what makes an e-mail confidential, secret or top secret is not a stamp or a marking on it, it's the contents of it. and you, as the secretary of state, as the country's chief diplomate, have a legal obligation to recognize state secrets when you see them.
so, she is basically saying to bret baier, and indirectly to the fbi, there were state secrets on 2000 e-mails? i didn't know they were state secrets until the state department told me they were. that's called gross negligence, that's a basis for a criminal prosecution, for the failure to secure state secrets. stuart: however, her actual audience was not the fbi, i understand where you're coming from on that, the actual audience was not that. the actual audience was democrats. >> i'm sure the audience in her mind, but she forgets that when she mocks the fbi by saying i didn't send or receive anything marked classified, she gins them up to investigate her with more, shall we say aggression. stuart: but her answers last night appeared to answer the questions that bret baier posed. appeared to be explanation how this thing is blown out of all proportion and i suspect many, many people will accept that on face value.
>> that were to be used-- and that will be useless to her when she's confronted with the following: mrs. clinton, this is the justice department calling. we have a lot of evidence about your behavior, we'd like to discuss with you and your lawyers. i don't want to see you, okay, we'll discuss it with a grand jury. >> that's what's going to happen? >> she will have the hobson's choice of talking to the fbi or not talking. if she does talk, they will leak it. and she will be the first person running for president of the united states who is compelled to justify her behavior to the fbi. if she doesn't talk, they'll go to a grand jury and they'll leak it. stuart: i think i've got it. i've got it. >> it's entirely of her own doing. this was all done because she wanted to stop transparency, she wanted to keep her behavior from the rest of the state department, and from us under the freedom of information act. stuart: she should have said, this is why i did it. >> she and the truth are often strangers. [laughter]
>> you'll be back at 11:00, i hope. how about this, maria sharapova failed a drug test. she says it was her mistake. it's costing her millions of dollars already. here is the question. does she deserve to lose that kind of money? good question. plus, we'll deal with this, turkey's new solution to the migrant crisis in europe, give us money and we'll take them back. put them in holding camps, we'll do that for you. we'll discuss it in a moment. at ally bank, no branches equals great rates. it's a fact. kind of like grandkids equals free tech support. oh, look at you, so great to see you! none of this works. come on in.

see car insurance in a whole new light. liberty mutual insurance. >> i received a letter from the itf that i had failed a drug test at australian open. i did fail the test and i take full responsibility for it. stuart: that was maria sharapova admitting that she failed a drug test. now, in response to that nike has suspended her and dropped her, we hear. how much is she losing. ashley: millions, also porsche suspending and not renewing the contract although they're saying we'll see how it turns out. the drug was meldona, it was just put on literally weeks ago. the test was taken prior to her match in the australian quarter
open against serena williams which she lost. but the drug increases the intake of oxygen into the blood and used for people who have heart issues. millions take it and she's taken it for ten years. stuart: i don't think she deserves this punishment, i don't. >> i don't think she does deserve it, and also on the line is her playing in rio in the summer olympics. this is huge and she did a great job putting out there. and she's looking to make restitution. stuart: and taken it for ten years and changed the drug testing rules on january 1st and misses the e-mail about that, getting caught at australian open and she's done. ashley: the general punishment is two years suspension. stuart: and-- >> the speculation was she was going to retire, but this was a bombshell. >> not at a hotel with dirty, ugly carpet. stuart: and the futures, how are we going to open up?
during daylight hours, that is, of the train derailment in california. ashley: 14 injured, commuter train. the first car falling off the tracks, hitting a fallen tree into a river, disaster situation, amazingly, no one killed. this happened last night in bad weather, the train from san jose to stockton. stuart: the bell ringing, where are we going? ever so slightly-- not ever so slightly lower, down about 80 points eventually in the first couple minutes of business. 1 17,-- the stocks are pulling back and we've had a five-day run-up. first of all, jack, to you. china's exports down 25%, imports down 13%. more weakness in china, is that part of the reason we're down this morning? >> it's part of it. look, the first number, i'm not that concerned with. there's a lot of junky
manufacturing activity going on in china for a long time that's not produced a profit. so, if there are exports plunging, that's them getting rid of the business they're never making money on to begin with. we were making money on that because we were selling the machinery. as the exports plunged, the imports come down and they don't need to buy the big expensive machines from the u.s. companies and that's ultimately going to hurt some of our industrials at the fringe. stuart: come into this. >> 17,000. we tipped in. ashley: now, we're below. >> i'm sorry, i got excited. stuart: a deep breath. ashley: reset. stuart: what do they say to trump? breathe, breathe. >> yoga. [laughter] in chicago, the voice of reason, please. are we down this morning
because china's exports are down 25%, or imports are down 13%? >> i do not think so, good morning. i think that what you have here is you've said it yourself, we've had a five day rally, the markets have rallied almost 10% from february 11th. at some point, somebody will take a profit. we're taking profit taking and the excuse is what's happening in china. the mess in china has not changed. china is in trouble and more issues to go forward. so this, in my opinion, is profit taking depending where we're going. . >> you see, the voice of reason. how about the price of oil. big deal yesterday, moved up $38 a barrel and this morning, it's 37, 47, down about 1%. listen to this, goldman sachs says, the recent rally in commodities is not for real, it's just a short little hop up and we're going to come down again. jack? >> i agree with that.
what has dramatically changed? i mean, we're still oversupplied. i don't see any, you know, dramatic-- ments all commodities, copper included, and lead and the rest of it. >> yeah, i don't see any dramatic increase in demand. >> that's going for the stock market. what's going on in china, you would expect that this rise would be iffy for some of these commodity prices. stuart: the voice of reason, todd, in chicago. what do you make of goldman sachs? all of these little rallies that we've had in commodity prices going nowhere, we see. >> i think that goldman sachs is looking to be a buyer. the bottoms are in in and then they're looking to push them down and it's a typical play from goldman sachs, and you look at the books and they're long going in. and they're lucky to push prices lower, but they can start buying down here, i think we've seen the overall bottom and they're looking for opportunities to get in bigger positions to go up. stuart: so technical inside the market, is that what it is?
you guys are messing things up. we're down almost 100 points. the big tech names were huge winners last year and we followed them up last year, they took a hit yesterday and some of them are taking another small hit this morning. facebook, for example, down 104, down a buck. amazon a big drop yesterday and this morning it's coming down a little bit more, down $7 at 5.55. alphabet down big yesterday, approaching the $700 level as of right now and netflix dropped 6 of% yesterday. coming back, what, 28 cents this morning. what's the story on netflix? liz: itt is perhaps overpromising the number of u.s. subscribers, it missed in the fourth quarter what it promised. netflix is not yet in china so they do have an estimated 70 million subscribers and that growth could still go up for
netflix. stuart: i wonder if netflix gets into china if donald trump is the president? liz: they'll create another nation of binge watchers. stuart: in brooklyn, there is aappeal of a ruling, going back to court, unlock the iphone liz: both sides doubling down. not just a legal, but a public relations battle played out in court. this will not affect the san bernardino's shooter's case. to apple they've said you've unlocked dozens of devices in the past, why aren't you now? >> that's important. stuart: you've done this for other people, why not now? >> not affecting the stock price, i don't believe. 100 shares of apple. we've got higher sales at urban outfitters. nicole, what's going on. nicole: it's leading the s&p 500 on a day with down arrows,
it moved to five-month highs and at least raised the price target. what's going on? they did better than expected sales, three people is a brand under urban outfitters, fast moving, a teen retailer and getting the product out and making the sales and as a result, it's a winner. stuart: i've got more individual stocks to go through, thank you, nicole. how about shake shack? a disappointing sales forecast and down it goes, 8%. 38 on shake shack. sales down at dick's sporting goods. the stock is down 3%. the same story at barnes & noble, that operates college book stores in america. it's moving 18 cents higher, but all the way down, $11 a share. jetblue, looking for pilots, no experience necessary. all right, ashley, give us the brief on this one. ashley: take a class on friday, and fly on monday.
no, no, no, it's a four-year course, costs $125,000. and looking to train people g.e.d., at least a high school diploma. four years of intensive training. stuart: four years. ashley: five years, you could be 23 years old by the time you graduate liz: you want to be a pilot? >> the stock is down not because of this pilot story. forecast disappointing. ashley: the union is furious. they say they should be hiring pilots out of the regional carriers. >> you've got at that pay a lot of money now, without the certainty. a young person would say i want to be a pilot, i would say be a balloon artist, this is a way to give people a guaranteed job. stuart: it's almost an apprenticeship, which a lot of people like the idea of. the unions don't. ashley: europeans do this and they're stealing the european model. stuart: look at nike.
the company is suspending their deal with maria sharapova. how much are they taking away. ashley: millions, it's not only nike, hits tag haurer. and porsche. >> they said we're sad about the news about maria sharapova. we've decided to suspend the relationship while the investigation continues. stuart: we've got an out lieer. i don't believe that she deserves this punishment. >> you're being too nice because she's pretty. when the u.s. doctors, not talking about the sports doctors from rocky 4. i'm talking about u.s. doctors with actual like ethics, they say. >> what. >> yes, there are uses for drugs for people with severe heart disease, but a young people, athlete. stuart: she has a heart
condition, why she's been taken it for ten years. >> there's percentage-wise, people are taking this drug and suspicious and definite performance enhancing qualities. this is her full-time jobs. ashley: she's been taking it for ten years. stuart: you'd take her out of the olympics because she changed the rules on january 1st and she didn't see the rule change? >> this is not a hobby for her. this is what she does for a living and part of what she does for a living is following which substances are banned or not. i'm sorry, there are rules, you've got to stick to it. stuart: one tough out lier. >> i had an extra cup of coffee. stuart: how about this, reports of a secret meeting to stop trump. ashley: there's nonconfirmation, there are talks that tim cook, larry page from google, and others getting together at an island. sound like a dr. evil movie, at an island off the coast.
it was the enterprise, and forum was how to stop donald trump. the first question, why is he so popular, what can we do to-- can't figure it out liz: the question is, do you want elites picking who the president will be? this doesn't look good for these guys, it looks elitists. >> i see where it's going, trump is going to launch his own smart phone to match the ties. stuart: we're down 107. that's the low of the session thus far, we're only ten minutes into it. we're down 108. four states vote today. republican candidates in a horse race, they're trying to get to 1,237 delegates. there will be a second ballot at the cleveland convention and the possibility, therefore, of back room fixing. how do you feel about na? we're back in a moment.
>> we've opened up this tuesday morning on the down side. we're off 100 points as we speak. the price of gasoline, no change from yesterday, still at $1.81, your national average on regular. now this, european union leaders and turkish officials are close to an agreement on migrants. what did they agree to? >> pushing back what they all irregular migrants, undocumented back to turkey. turkey says where is our money? you promised us $3 billion back in october and we haven't gotten. they want $6 billion in exchange for taking the migrants back, they want better access, visa access into europe because right now it's not easy to get a visa, for turkish
people to get into the eu. they want that eradicated and move talks of turkey joining the eu. they're using leverage in this migrants crisis liz: no visas for any turkish-- that means visa-free zone. stuart: turkey wants to be a part of the european union. ashley: yes. stuart: they want talks on membership moved up. that would give them all access to all of europe, all turkish citizens. that's what they want liz: what about the illegal migrants coming in. stuart: that's a deal that's not going to fly in germany, it's not. back to politics, four states vote a race to get to 1,237 delegates. if they reach the convention and no candidate has 1237 delegates they have a sound round of balloting, in that second round of balloting, 80% of delegates are freed up and can vote any which way they like.
which means maximum horse trading, back room fixing, what it means, surely. american conservative union guy is with us this morning. [laughter] >> i don't know how you feel about this, but outsiders who are not part of the political process, they look at the whole idea of horse trading at the convention, as the kiss of death for the republican party and you say what? >> you know, i think the idea of having a brokered convention, stuart, where some name comes in out of nowhere, and somehow is innen could tension to get the nomination, i think that's a disaster for us. having an open convention where you have vote after vote after vote to see who can get the minimum number, i'm okay with that. stuart: if you've got trump and he doesn't get 1237 delegates, he doesn't quite get there, he's got less than that, and somehow or other, the back room dealing denies him the nomination, his supporters walk. they will say, this is typical of what goes on in the republican party. they walk and you lose.
>> this has been the big question about trump, which is a lot of people in our party are uncomfortable with donald trump, but the idea of bringing on all of these supporters into the republican party, i would like to encourage them to see that a good thing, our party has to grow if it's successful. we just lost two white house bids, we don't want to lose a third. getting new people is part of the process in a democracy. stuart, you're right. this has got to be seen as completely transparent and fair process where or the republican party has a big problem. stuart: what do you make of the meetings we're told has taken place between technology billionaires and leaders of the house and senate, a big stop trump at any price deal. did any such a series of a meeting take place? >> i think these meetings are happening everywhere and it's ironic to see these billionaires trying to stop a billionaire. the cool thing about politics, it's really not about the money, it's about the fact that
the american people, certainly, conservatives across the country and republicans, they're very anxious, they're very raw after seven years of obama, and they're in a c cantankrous mood. it's why dr. ben carson and marco rubio hasn't been in the senate a term, are popular. stuart: i'm sorry, cut it short. i've not breaking news. new reports that iran has conducted missile tests. what more do we have. ashley: ballistic missile tests. a u.s. official says that the reported tests of missiles do not violate the nuclear deal recently agreed to, but may violate u.n. security resolutions. it's an example how bad the deal was. stuart: maria sharapova misses a rule change.
23 million in endorsements, i ask this, does she deserve to lose that money? we're waiting for better business bureau and trump university's grading. trump says it gets an a. >> the only reason it was a d because we didn't care and we didn't give them the information, when they got the information, it became a "a", we looked back at this, the rating from the better business bureau was a d-minus. pet moments are beautiful, unless you have allergies. then your eyes may see it differently. only flonase is approved to relieve both your itchy, watery eyes and congestion. no other nasal allergy spray can say that. complete allergy relief or incomplete. let your eyes decide. flonase changes everything.

see car insurance in a whole new light. liberty mutual insurance. >> maria sharapova failed a drug test for a banned substance which was used in the australian open. she was using it then. nike and other major sponsors are now suspending their relationship with sharapova, 23 million worth of endorsements on the line here. joining us now jared max. jared, the question in my mind is, does she deserve this punishment? and i say this because, she's been using this drug for ten years. the authorities changed the rules on this drug on january the 1st. they sent out an e-mail message to players. she didn't see it, she failed to click on it so she failed the drug test according to the new rules at australian open. she's admitted it and said this is what happened. i don't think she's a doper. i don't think she deserves to lose all this money.
>> i think a lot of people would agree with you, stuart, and i tend to side with you, but we have seen instances where athletes have used substances that are classified as performance enhancing drugs, and whether or not they were using them to enhance their performance or because it was previously prescribed by their doctor for something else, they have a responsibility. tennis players know that every year in december they are e-mailed a list, here is what the latest substances are. again, like if the fcc sent us a note that said these words are now faux pas and you can't use them or you're in trouble. and this particular substance she's been taking for a variety of conditions. she said in 2006 her doctor prescribed it to her, she was getting the flu every few months, there also had irregular ekc results, signs of diabetes a diabetes, diabetes in her family. i would like to know that was in 2006.

he's a situational list. >> would you support him if he's the nominee? >> i will support whoever the republican nominee is at this point. as i look at the supreme court, who was nominated somebody? i've got a better shot at having someone who's closer to where i am with any of the candidates. thank you for joining us. we appreciate you being here. look at facebook. they want to start live streaming. >> they are in the mix to pitch to have the rights to the digital streaming of the nfl thursday night games. nbc, cbs have are to pay $450 million for the rights of this. but they are doing the live streaming right separately. let's face it. video is the future of facebook. they make content. this to be a huge win for them.

taxes on the trade. stuart: last night's town hall. he said he believes tripling down economic does not work. rollback tape. >> i do not believe in trickle-down economics. i do not believe that you give tax breaks to the rich. struggling to come out and help working families. what i do believe is that we need to put more money into the hands of working families. you raise the minimum wage. >> you do not just raise the minimum wage. >> we have been trying this the past eight years. we see that gap grow wider. it simply does not work. who pays people? large corporations. help them grow. raise the minimum wage.
where do you think that that money comes from? >> it is not that they go out and buy a nice type. they invest in the extra money that they are allowed to keep. >> trickle-down government. >> he wants to take it off us and give it to somebody else. >> rotten robin hood. they are telling me to move on.

[laughter] check out this big board. we are coming back. about five minutes to go. loyal. that was down about $1 earlier. still down about $1. if you are $1 for the price of
oil, down 100 points for the dow industrials. >> i like that. >> famous around the world. look at the big technology stocks. facebook. amazon. google. apple. they were down big time. that is the state of play on the markets. let's get back to politics. melissa francis is with us. four states join us today. kt, come on in. here is what i am hearing. there is no candidate that will get the required 1237 delegates by the time the convention wins. they will have a vote. no one gets the required number. the delegates are freed up to vote for whomever they please. they will try to get somebody over the line.
i say that that could be a real problem for the republican party. >> i think that you could say that the bathroom boys are winning, so to speak. the delegate process is there. a sense of voters have different choices in states leading up to the convention did at this point, we do not have someone that is winning fair and square in terms of the process. donald trump may get close to that. the threshold of clinching the nomination. he has to win 60% of all the delegates from this point out. he only beat ted cruz by one delegate. we will see a long drawn out process here. there will be some people changing their minds. based on who they want to vote for if we get to the second round of the ballot. >> i have melissa francis.
what is up. she is so smart. i think that this is a media fantasy. we would all love to see this. at the end, i think that donald trump will pull ahead. we are moving into territory where he has more voters that are in favor of him. >> what happens if this is a brokered convention. they get together and they denied the candidacy to donald trump. all of these newcomers to politics. they say, no, we will get together in the back room. >> there will not be getting together in the back room. there is no meeting of the gop establishment. considering a lot of trump people are previous democrats, i think that they will probably go
back to their party. there are some new trump voters that are brought to theparty. that is great. if we do go to a convention, no one is stealing the nomination from donald trump. 1267 delegates count in order to be the nominee. the consequence was not getting himself over the line. going to a convention. putting him over the line. talking about the nomination towards him or swiping it out from under him. it is not like he is making it to a proper delegate count. she has to go into this.
get the delegates that they need. >> you, too. thank you so much for joining us. donald trump says he favors changing the laws to allow torture. playing the game the way the terrorists play the game. back in a moment when you think what does it look like? is it becoming a better professor by being a more adventurous student? is it one day giving your daughter the opportunity she deserves? is it finally witnessing all the artistic wonders of the natural world? whatever your definition of success is, helping you pursue it, is ours.

laden. you lose the support. you lose your moral standing. your enemies use that as a recruiting tool. you may get something good out of using enhanced interrogation tech meeks. you will get a lot of negative out of that as well. i do not think that they will be good with this. >> i simply believe that we did use this method again. the person or persons that did it will eventually be charged in the court of law in the united states. you are nodding your head. >> you are absolutely right. very frustrating for people like me that our military situations to be in this legal gray area. not necessarily aligned with the opinion of what was legal and
what was illegal. none of our background prepared us for this. they used enhanced interrogation techniques. they had a legal finding from the justice department. now there is this hanging cloud. we may come back and investigate you and prosecute you. there has to be a finding that the people are doing the interrogations. >> training that i went through. that sucks. i do not think that that is torture. >> definitional thing. got it. thank you for joining us, sir. jimmy carter now says he no longer needs cancer treatment. back in a moment.

treatment. does that mean he is cured? being involved with church and activity. the objective tests say it is undetectable. >> called on a second. there have been tests. cancer is no longer detectable. that does not mean that he is cured. sometimes undetectable cancer. undetectable, it does not mean that he is cancer free. >> you must have been doing something. >> we know that he had radiation to the brain. removing any kind of lesion there. was it a combination of all of those three things?

hi...i'm pamela yellen. you may have read my bestselling book "the bank on yourself revolution". over the last 25 years, i've researched more than 450 financial products. i found that one of the best-kept secrets to help you plan for your retirement is the home equity conversion mortgage. it's a line of credit for homeowners age 62 or older. and it's offered by a company you can trust- one reverse mortgage, a quicken loans company! call one reverse mortgage now to get the details. their licensed experts will tell you if you're eligible, show you the line of credit amount you qualify for, and will send you a free information kit. the home equity conversion mortgage line of credit is even better than a traditional line of credit... because you can make payments if you'd like, but no monthly mortgage payments are required;
this program is government insured; and the money available to you increases every year. for example, if your 100,000 dollar line of credit remains untouched, it could increase to 300,000 or more, years later. so the sooner you start your line of credit, the more money you could have access to in the future. i've educated thousands of financial planners -- many are including the home equity conversion line of credit in their client's retirement plans. while this product is good if you need financial help now, it's even better if you want to strengthen your retirement plan for later. it offers a wide range of flexibility for every homeowner age 62 or older. i believe this is a smart financial tool and i recommend that every homeowner who qualifies consider getting one now. call one reverse mortgage right now to get the details, find out if you qualify and get your free information kit.
stuart: we are coming back. the price of oil is down. not as much as it was. 3696 on oil. gold still moving just a little bit higher. 1268. the better business bureau. trump university. donald trump defense his university's record. it has been contested in new york. i want to get this in first. i think that this is a political prosecution. eric snyderman is doing it.
he is doing it because he wants to embarrass trump at a particular moment on the campaign. the attorney general of new york is doing on behalf of the 40,000 people that signed up for this. it is not a university. it is not a university. it did meet minimal standards. mr. trumps people appealed that. the appellate court agreed. it is not a university. now it is back in the issue is fraud. did donald trump to defraud these people out of money. i have testimonials for many of them. i have certificates of successful completion and appreciation for them.
entering into the middle of this. he did not lose a nickel. stuart: eric schneiderman is on the left. >> no question about that. actually contributing to schneiderman's campaign. [laughter] stuart: hold on. let's listen in. >> serving metropolitan new york. making joint statements. the council of better business bureau's. the statement is being made to help clear up several this convention. trump entrepreneur initiative. not taking questions. thank you in advance for your cooperation.
>> good morning. hi, everyone. the better business bureau. joining with the council. over the past week, the better business bureau has provided several statements in response to public inquiries. four trump, entrepreneur initiative. these statements remain available on our website. we are issuing a further statement today. inaccurate reports that continue to be repeated. we reserve to trump university. there is only one business
review entrepreneur initiative did brought to our attention. bbb did not send a document of any kind to the republican debates site for last evening. it does not come from the bbb that night. trump university does not currently have an a rating for bbb. the bbb business review for this company continues being no rating since september of 2015. prior to that, if fluctuated between a b- and then a+. the documents posted on social media on thursday night was not a current business review of trump university. it appeared to be part of a different review from 2014.
bbb ratings are based on information we have taken about a business including complaints received from the public. detailed information about abb ratings is available on all business reviews on our website. bbb.org. at no point, did bbb change the rating of trump university based upon a demand from anyone. the standard evaluation process. during the period when trump university appeared to be act of in the marketplace, multiple customer complaints about the business. these complaints it was as low as a b- in 2010.
no complaints were reported here at they rolled off the business review. according to bbb policy. trump university's bbb rating went to an a in july of 2014. and then to an a+ january 2015. trump university has never been a bbb accredited as this. the document handed on thursday night could not have been an actual better business bureau accreditation notice to this business. to be accredited, a business must apply for credit patient. they must determine that the business meets the standards which include a commitment to
make a good-faith effort to resolve any consumer complaints. bbb publishes ratings for both accredited and non-credited did improving the customer record over time. the accredited businesses must meet higher requirements. businesses must first earn a high rating and confirm compliance with other bbb accreditation standards before being eligible for credit patient. it must maintain compliance with the standards to continue. stuart: lost on this particular voice. [laughter] she is finished. okay. we came back just in time. listening very closely to what is going on here.
would you like to explain? >> it is the following. the left validated trump university. they gave it a delta -- d. verifiable complaints that they received. after three years, the complaint whirls off. trump university has not been in business the last years. there are no longer any complaints. the rating automatically rises to an a. i did not watch this portion. the personal debate alleging that trump university received in a rating was not an evaluated a rating. they had not taken any complaints. >> the lady said, we have multiple complaints in 2013 when
trump university was operating. they got a delta rating at that time. >> yes. then the company's dried up. the university went out of business. the complaint tried up. that was the reason why trump university got an a rating in 2014. in a+ and 2015. >> according to donald trump, yes, people complained. people always complained about a university. this leftist views. this is malicious. a d- from the better business bureau. >> people complained.
not properly resolved in the eyes of the bbb. >> london school of economics. >> i will tell you what i think. this is trump's opponent ganging up on him. trying to exploit some kind of weakness. >> there is very serious evidence to support that. >> yes. yes. tomorrow morning at 9:00 o'clock. [laughter] >> thank you, judge. hillary clinton and bernie sanders. economics professor peterborough ricci. can you, professor? he wants a single-payer healthcare system. just like sanders. the professor is next. >> let's face it. obamacare is a bust. american health insurance health care is broken. big european simply are doing

[applause] stuart: who has to pay. peterborough riccio is with us.
you have ruffled a few feathers on "varney & company." what we need in america is a single-payer's assistance. you do not really believe that bernie sanders style, do you? >> the same healthcare everybody gets. that is nonsense. we have two choices. where they significantly regulate prices. very extraordinary prices for prescription drugs. i do not think that the republicans are willing to do that. on the other hand, you can go to a single-payer system. before we went to obamacare, the government was already paying healthcare costs. we do not have a single-payer system already is silly.
sure raids and nonsense. it adds to the cost. >> the cost of health care in america is very, very high. in large part because of lawyers. medical malpractice. why am i paying $1400 for a blood test. i will tell you why. every stage of that blood test has to have insurance against an illegal attack. you see where i am going with this? >> absolutely. we also have to get rid of the monopoly pricing problem. one or two hospitals. one or two insurers. raising the prices. what can i squeeze medicare for. that becomes the price for everybody.
these insurance companies with this ungodly bureaucracy, my wife spends hours and hours dealing with the four of us at home. it is just terrible. stuart: you think that healthcare is expensive, just wait until it is free. >> look at britain. spending half of what we spend on health care. absolutely have. germany spends two thirds on what we spend. >> no lawyers. no lawyers. >> that is not the only problem. >> it is a big problem, peter. >> we are paying way too much for drugs. they say, the germans are not paying enough. we will get them to pay more. do not tell me that we have to carry the whole ball.
