>> joe walk much or what? >> not surprised about the jo walsh. has to be the queen's 90th birthday. don't give me a grown in the audience night is america. stuart: okay, on that note, i think we should pitch to neil cavuto. best story of the day, neil. 90thbirthday for the queen. neil: i would go for the eye thing. just me. mad dash for 1237. what if we told you the trump people might not be overstating things that they will have it comfortably by the time they get convention. we've been crunching numbers here, there is distinctly possible they could avoid whole foods fight. deirdre bolton how that could happen. >> 15 states, 41 days. we want to take you through it all. as everyone can see trump clearly has most delegates. mathematically his team is saying it.
he is the only candidate who has a path to the 1237. both cruz and kasich would need more than 100%. we'll start go through the calendar. we'll show what is coming up. april you have the northeastern states where trump is expected to have a really big strong showing. pennsylvania being the wildcard. we talked about this loophole primary. trump expected to do very well there, nonetheless. so 97 delegates on the table in the northeast. most people saying look, in this area, trump is going to get the lion's share. moving further out, if you go west, you're going to see what is coming up in may. indiana and nebraska, very strong moments for cruz according to our projections according to polling. oregon, washington, trump will make a bigger showing there. indiana, nebraska, that is the place where ted cruz if you like, spoil a path for donald trump. that is a bit cleaner. may overall, 63 delegates. going further out in the calendar of june, california, if
you remember one thing, our viewers remember one thing, 172 delegates on the table. neil, you know this, california's gdp if you just separate it out it would be a top 10 country in the world. super important, trump expected to do well there. 164 delegates as a possible scenario there for june. so at end of the day, if we wrap it up as far as all math, what is on the table, what we expect, 1169 is the number that we have gotten too for donald trump. as you know, there are 150 unbound delegates that he could sway and move before that convention but here is the math so far. neil, back to you. neil: looking at way you did there he would technically be a little shy but with uncommitted slate and slates he could close the deal? >> exactly right. that is what his supporters are saying. look, there is a lot of unbound delegates, who, listen, if he does the ground game correctly can reach out and get their support.
as we know, ted cruz has been very aggressive in the ground game and especially in california. somebody from the cruz team told me yesterday, we've been there more than a year. trump, his team just started showing up a few weeks ago. neil: mr. "art of the deal" will have to start -- >> start making some deals. neil: that is fascinating. thank you very, very much. the trump people sent out a memo yesterday, this according to "washington post," contrary to what deirdre is reporting they have 1400 delegates. they are convinced when they get to cleveland, 1400 delegates, much more than the 1237 they will need. you're probably as confused as i am. bottom line they are trying to avoid any controversy before they get to cleveland, they fear, maybe for good reason, given the dust-up with the party, if they don't have the 1237 in hand they will not win the thing. that is the real facts. "real clear politics" reporter rebecca berg. do you think he, donald trump,
secure this thing by the time they get to the convention? >> you know, neil, as you pointed out, the unbound delegates are going to be critical in answering that question. so it could be that he is within 100 or so delegates going into cleveland, short of locking up the nomination as many projections are showing now but those delegates will be in play. my thinking looking how the delegate selection has gone thus far, including for some of the unbound delegates, trump will be short going into a contested convention, an open convention and as a result of those unbound delegates, not being able to sway them ultimately. really it is hard to predict at this point because we've never seen what would happen in that scenario which would be essentially an extension of the primary process for the six weeks in between the end of the primariry, leading up to the convention. it would be an amazing lobbying effort for those few delegates
to really sway the way the nomination will go. neil: you know, is it your opinion too this might, i think if he is one delegate short, no one will give him anything and so he has got to secure this thing before that first ballot? if he doesn't, i don't think he is going to get it, what do you think? >> i think if you're absolutely right. if you look at delegate selection thus far cruz completely dominated across-country. no question about that. you would see a lot of attrition from donald trump's delegates to other candidates on second ballot. that is why donald trump's team is hoping to try to lock this up before the convention, if not before the convention, to at least come close enough the unbound delegates will feel obligated, pressure to support donald trump at convention. that is why we're seeing him, sort of mount this campaign to win over republicans to say look, this would be tantamount to stealing the convention,
stealing the nomination, if another candidate were to swoop in when i have the most delegates, when i clearly have a lead in the popular vote. that is the strategy behind what he is saying right now. he is hoping to that he can at least pressure delegates to support him even if he is short. neil: he is always sending that message out next week in pennsylvania, 54 delegates are uncommitted slate, right? >> exactly. neil: if he actually wins the state and that, wouldn't that delegation represent the will of the voters there? or could that be a source of contention? >> it will absolutely be a source of contention. it is interesting that pennsylvania is in play because the last contested convention for republicans in '76, reagan picked as his would be running mate as senator from pennsylvania to try to sway the delegation in advance of the convention. in kansas city we could see a similar situation here leading up to the convention in cleveland where pennsylvania is the key. neil: all right. thank you very much, rebecca. good stuff.
it will be interesting. >> thank you. neil: to the other side, bernie sanders record haul of $46 million, close to it. this comes at a time close to yesterday bernie sanders was reassessing things, pulling in money like that, and rabid support he has particularly among young liberals, would that be a good idea for him to sort of cease and desist or slow down? to mike warren on that, "weekly standard" writer extraordinaire. mike, if you look at this, you say bernie sanders i'm popular with a rabid base of the party and hillary clinton isn't. there would be no reason for him to drop out. but where, what does it say of the rabid base, don't like hillary clinton fairly liberal in her own right, not too enthusiastic about barack obama, who is quite liberal in his own right? what about this young liberal group?
>> yeah i think they are maybe less, not enthusiastic about barack obama but disappointed perhaps in thinking that barack obama has not achieved what maybe he promised or what maybe they thought he could achieve in his eight years in office. so bernie sanders is almost kind of an outlet for that frustration. i think sanders has to look at this, he looks at money he is pulling in, looks at continued support, even though really in the end he will not be able to close the gap with delegates with hillary clinton. there is too many obstructions in the way. neil: flip it around, mike. >> sure. neil: could he slow her momentum to the delegates that she would need, 2393 that she would need? >> he is certainly doing that. very well could in the next few states. i think real question here is sanders role at the convention and sort of shaping the party's platform. it moved hillary clinton to the left to have to deal with this bernie sanders challenge on the left. that changed the democratic
party. the democratic party is more reflective of what the bernie sanders movement really cares about. inequality of income. you know, taking care of college tuition by government and taxpayers. that shift to the left is all reflected in bernie sanders's insurgency within the primary. if he could ride this out -- neil: mike, where do the voters go? i can't see them supporting maybe donald trump or certainly not ted cruz? i guess prevailing argument would be they have to vote for somebody. i guess they could sit on their hands and vote for nobody? >> they could. there is no ralph mader in this race who could sort of pull away small group of those rabid supporters. a lot of democrats, even ones supporting bernie sanders, they're the type who will come home, whoever the democratic nominee is they will support. they couldn't certainly support someone as radical as ted cruz
and donald trump in their view. so i do think a lot of them come home. we can't overemphasize their numbers within the democratic party. you might be able to say there is a silent majority within the democratic party that is along with hillary clinton willing to go along with her and supporting her. i think the bernie sanders crowd is certainly more loud. they're more active and so that is who we see a lot more of. let's not overestimate their influence in the democratic party. he is still behind her in the popular vote and of course in delegates as well. neil: you want those people with you, not too jazzed by you. we'll see what happens. mike warren, "weekly standard," good stuff. thank you. >> thanks, neil. neil: all right, you heard of sneaky ways to get into this country from mexico but a half mile tunnel complete with an elevator? it's true. it's real. wait until i show you images and getting back to donald trump avoiding all of this with a wall or doesn't? this would be presumably under the wall with an elevator.

see car insurance in a whole new light. liberty mutual insurance. ♪ neil: welcome, everybody. i want to show you something fascinating. this is a tunnel that agents found connecting mexico and united states, half a mile long. the thing had an elevator. had the ability to work electricity throughout it. it had everything but a refrigerator, and i don't know. i never seen anything like this. but i'm told it is not that unusual but, you talk about something very, very sophisticated. can you imagine how long it took to do this. to sheriff joe arpaio is saying this is why we have to clamp down on the border. he is backing donald trump for president. sheriff good to have you. >> great to be here, neil.
neil: sheriff, i know donald trump want to build a wall. this thing would go under the wall. how do you stop this kind of stuff? >> i don't know. donald's great builder, great businessman, i'm sure he will know how deep to go with the wall. no big deal. if the mexicans don't want to build a wall, maybe they can control that border with a human wall and let us go over there with the military and border patrol and work with them, and stop all the drugs and illegal immigration. you know i was director there in mexico city. i've seen a lot of things but not these sophisticated type tunnels. there has to be a little collusion there. somebody has to know they're transporting equipment and building a tunnel so what is going on. neil: you just read my mind. this doesn't look like something a couple of illegals came up with in the spare time. from all accounts, this thing was very sophisticated. elevator, electricity.
a means of, even a like a rolling line to get people through it. that is pretty sophisticated stuff that seems to at least, implicate others potentially. back to this wall thing. also the wall were dug really low into the ground, they could find away around that sort of thing. it comes back to, do we need a smarter, blockade to sop this? >> maybe we need some political influence too. maybe the secretary of state and president should spend more time having a little beer with the president in mexico to get them to stop this situation of the drugs and illegals coming into our country. it is a bigger problem than just building a wall but that would be deterrent. but that will not solve the the
100%, neil. you need pressure to mexico to try to get things done in a nice way. if it is not nice, you do it the tough way. take away their money. neil: do you think, let's say donald trump were elected, sheriff, that ahead of his inauguration, there would be a rush like we've never seen before of illegals into this country? >> i think it is happening now. sort of a deterrent. they're coming across knowing that wall may be going up. it is already happening. so it is a deterrent before it is even built. so that's good in a way. not that they're coming over, but think what will happen when a wall goes up there. but you got to have more than just a wall. you have to have a way to enforce the laws over there. and when they do hop over the wall, you put them in jail. you don't kick them back and they come back over and over again, if they can get over the wall. neil: right, right. >> so that is how you do it. neil: if donald trump did become
president sheriff, and he offered you homeland security job, would you take it? >> you know, i love donald trump. i was with him from day one. he is a great guy. i'm not getting into his interests when my wife has been sick, how many times he called my wife. he is a great person. it would be very difficult to turn him down because i've endorsed other presidents because i have to turn him down because i'm running for sheriff again. i run the third largest sheriff sheriffs's. i got to continue the serve the people of maricopa county. it would be tough if he makes that call. neil: i suspect he might, right? >> i don't know. i see him -- he is a great guy. he will win, i tell you. he is only one will beat hillary, i guarranty you on that. neil: frustration with republicans fearing that he will lead them to a huge loss, democrats will take over the senate, you don't buy any of that? >> no. a lot of hype out there.
they're all going after donald. must be afraid of him. neil: all right. always speaking your mind, sheriff. we always appreciate that. thank you very much. good seeing you again. >> thank you. thank you. neil: ual is suddenly in a world of hurt here because revenue could weaken a little bit. when you hear that, major airline talking about revenue weakening, you have to wonder, is it weakening because people aren't really into flying? they're scared of flying. or just cutting back period because they're scared that something bad will happen with the economy, like turn south fast? we're all over it after this. so what else is new? how's your mother? umm..she's doing good. she needs more care though. she wants to stay in her house. i don't know even where to start with that. first, let's take a look at your financial plan

s&p 500, 110 reported their earnings. more than 3/4 reported earnings better than expected. why is that? are they doing so much better than they did last year? no, the bar is set really low. this is hollow victory for many companies. want to talk about banks for a quick second. first time since 2013 six big banks reported earnings better than expected. for morgan stanley that meant profit decline of 53%. better than expected. for goldman sachs, profit decline of 60%. better than expected. that is why this feels like a hollow victory for many companies. we have many earnings coming out today, especially after the bell. i want to look at couple of them. microsoft and google. google's parent alphabet from the tech sector. starbucks and visa, with microsoft you want to pay attention to see if they're going from a pc company more into a cloud company, their share price past three months up about 10%. for al can bet, second quarter, breaking out earnings between
search business, and moon shoot entities. that stock is also up 7%. more on that later on. neil, send it back to you. neil: lauren, thank you very, very much. so better than expected does not mean a lot less than last year. there in lies the rub for potential markets. if earnings are lower than they were last year at this time that would be fourth quarter in a row that happened. that could be a worrisome sign for the market whether they beat expectations or not. jared levy what he reads into this and whether he is worried about this, expectations be damned. jared, what do you think? >> you have to put it in perspective, neil. in january when everything was falling apart, right? average company was expected to earn a dollar. in the period of time between january now, they're expected to earn only 85 cents. but because they earned 87 cents, we're rewarding them with the rally.
it is kind of cookie, in that -- kooky. in time between january and now markets have rallied. the point investors have to look long and hard what is going on, realize yes, there is earnings recession going on. yes, like you said this could be the fourth quarter in a row where earnings growth is negative. do you really want to own risky assets right now. unfortunately there is nothing else in the world to really buy, i'm exaggerating slightly, that is what all this negative interest rate thing is about. it steers people into risky assets like stocks because there is no other place to go. that's -- neil: jared, do you think our market is pricey? price earnings multiples are higher than they would be, and should be, how do you gauge it? is this a rich market? >> its so hard. textbook, yes. i'll be honest with you, i've had my shirt handed to me over past couple weeks i'm bets on a
decline. i think sell in may go away thing will be pronounced. i do believe like i said, textbook, we're expensive. neil, it is not about me. it is about average psyche of investor and how they're rationalizing it. to them when the rallies happen to shake out short sellers, average person feels like they're missing out. expensive yes. but it could drift a little higher but again i think end of may, i think summer will be nasty because there is not much to go on here. i think we will have a correction. when that happens, is still tough to call. neil: jared, thank you very much. food seeing you again. >> you too. neil: well, i don't know if he is selling stock to do it or buildings or maybe has it on hand but donald trump is sure spending his money. people say finally the billionaire is throwing in some of his own cash. 11 million in the last month. we're told he has a $20 million ad campaign. a lot of that earmarked for california. but what if i told you he would
still be at serious financial disadvantage against hillary clintons, unless, unless he gets some help. after this. i'm mary ellen, and i quit smoking with chantix. i always came back to smoking. i was absolutely frustrated, absolutely. i did not think chantix would work as well as it did. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. chantix reduced my urge to smoke.
closing it by the time he gets to cleveland. probably one of the more important primaries next tuesday. connell, what is the latest from there? connell: it is interesting. trump has been using this word that his campaign is evil thing. money, as you mentioned, is one of the ways he is starting to spend money. when you look at the numbers in the washington post, they have been spending more. $36 million. what we're really starting to see it emerge here are to donald trumps. we saw him in maryland last night. the same donald trump.
big rallies. the over-the-top rhetoric. the lying ted. some of them have used the word. a more professional campaign. he has his delegate manager. how unique this state is. you have 71 delegates around the state. you only get 17 statewide. these other 58 delegates. campaigning on those 54 people. get your people in. get them collect it. that will be it.
neil, thank you very, very much. well connected with those donor types. unless you start spending a lot of his money, or find some donors that will spend some of their money, he will be at a big if advantage. >> meal, this will be a big catch up game. with that said, it is not out of the park. there aren't many big donors. the bigger question that i would like to know would be, what is the rnc going to do if he is a nominee. are they going to pull out?
what are they going to do? what is going to happen? i am not putting a dime into the rnc. >> if you hold a grudge, he gets the nomination. may need them going forward. i am not going to give them a dime. the lesser of that evil. you have been in campaigns where nasty stuff has been said. time is a wasting here. >> it is. not only with the donors, but with the voters.
you have a scenario that is not good. you have donors that are very vocal. i do not think that they will cut him a check. neil: the argument is donald trump shows up baby gets free press. both parties candidates get free press by that definition. the playing field levels. he will need that money. do you hate trump or do you hate hillary? a way that is de facto. that is an edge at you need as a
billionaire. you and i know how this works. presumably they are. individual donors per se. that is a big appealing feature to his candidacy. >> did you not catch in his speeches. he will be a self under all the way. kind of loosey-goosey. neil: hillary clinton or bernie sanders. hundreds of millions of dollars to make sure that you are the guy. >> no. two cares. i see that it is a very good
point. what about taking money. what do you think? >> don all trump has said a lot of things. he said john mccain won the war. it has not hurt him at all. he would be starting to take money from people. i need it. i need your help. it will probably still be voters on the sense. where are they going to go? the vision is really tight. neil: finally we are doing something like this. they are having a gathering at west point. dealing with this once and for all. what is happening there?

was a democrat in the 80s and 90s. they want to remind that it is a process. the 1850s, 1860s. they are trying to remind people that it is not a plurality. you need that. >> a lot of folks would look at that and try to stick it to donald trump. >> i think that this is a process that everybody signed up for. all the other candidates now out of the race. you know, he is playing his game. they should play bears. his cards are to whip up his core base and to tell him that the bases being taken from him. a little more than one third of
the republican party. i'm favorable ratings among the general public. he has a very hard-core following. that is clear. a very hard-core opposition. whether or not he can bring this party together and the unity and united in cleveland is a big if. have not tried to reach out to the parts of the parties. >> he says that he will get to cleveland with more than enough. the nominee on the first ballot. others say it will be close. maybe not quite at that level. 1237 model. if that is the case, do you think everyone can hold hands? move off into the general election? >> getting to the 1237.
it will be really topsy if he doesn't. if he gets 1400 like his internal strategy memo -- the author of some internal strategy memo. best case scenarios. the way the campaign wants you to see it. we will see. if he can get the 1237, he will be the nominee. if not, i think that it will be very unlikely. >> i am listening to this. doing and what they are not doing. jeb bush are ready announcing that he is not going to the convention. you know, you cannot do that. how bad is this getting?
>> bad. we're seeing this level of calling for community. it is not just within the trump cramp or the cruz camp. the candidates remain in front runner position. they would rather not attend the convention. it is a very strong antiestablishment feeling. >> i am wondering how donald trump can win. i am speaking of donors, two. very instrumental in helping in the general election campaign. they have been part of what is called a rigged process. >> donald trumps problem is not just that he has made personal insult.
those are big problems for him. when it comes to people that should be his allies, he has problems in terms of electability. that is a hangup for many republican donors. he is not the nominee. who they believe is better in terms of public policy. also trying to consider who can win. who can face hillary clinton or bernie sanders. neil: thank you very, very much. that death app rinses compound was prince. the 57-year-old entertainer is dead. it began with an emergency call service to his compound in minnesota. quite a large compound. they were notified of a male
unable to breathe. having trouble breathing. this only a few days after prince had to stop on a private jet. make an early emergency landing. he has had this problem on and off for a wild. he had been fighting the flu for weeks. a few days ago, he did follow up with a concert the next day. telling the audience that he was fine. earlier in the month he was canceling a number of appearances. someone calling in from a compound saying someone was having trouble breathing. it is exactly the same sort of rollout that we had with michael jackson. now in other iconic figure in the music industry is gone. prince is dead at 57. we will have more after this. ♪ the e-class has 11 intelligent

neil: the artist formerly known as prince. he is dead. dying at his home earlier today. police investigating a call from someone at that residence. a male complaining of breathing difficulties. prince one of the war iconic and successful musicians of all times. he has won seven grammy awards. fourteen other songs hitting the top 10. only the beatles as a group outdated in terms of multiple awards and world recognition.
obviously, this sets a standard or musical films. very few have come out and been near that caliber or popularity. he is gone. there were signs maybe just a few days ago where he had to stop his private jet and make a emergency landing in illinois. he went ahead and continued with a concert the next day. this has been an on-again off-again problem. he never forgot his florida roots. the singer died today at his delta seven. so similar to the initial reports when michael jackson died. the housekeeper called in saying there was difficulty browsing michael jackson. complaining of breathing difficulties. another world-famous singer suffering the same fate.
different reasons, different time, different reasons, different personalities, same thing. dying entirely too young. dagen mcdowell. david asman. charles payne. we will discuss a few other issues here. this is a big deal, charles payne. cutting across a broad spectrum. >> i am not even sure what to say right now. it is tough. it really is tough. fifty-seven is such a young age. he was one of these artists who was in it or the artistic shake a bit. he was a trailblazer. he was a rebel within the music industry. this new environment where you cannot make money. he was a true, genuine person and many, many ways.
i am just shocked as a fan. i really did love his music and his commitment to being great. neil: i loved his music. you talk about michael jackson and to talk about rents. in michael jackson's case, and other who almost repudiated that industry. even to the point of often times not going to award shows. he was at the grammys this year. to make a statement that he was nobody's puppet, i believe. he would go around them. i think a lot of it started with prince. >> absolutely. we all remember when he change his name to a symbol to make
that point. unlike a lot of these folks that ladies games for political correctness. he was multi talented. played several instruments. he even act did. it is a sad day when the country loses such eight talent. neil: look at our greatest musical superstars. they die young. dagen: they do, neil. looking at instagram. chris rock tweeted a photo from the cover of prince's first album. he said, say it ain't so. to charles and to me, prince is really the artist of our generation. it is not madonna. it is not guns and roses.
it was prince because of his found risk creativity and his boundary pushing. he made it okay to be different. he starred in the movie purple rain. wearing platform he was a movie star. he was a rock star. his talent was indescribable. neil: type a personality. they seek out the limelight. not prince. in fact, he almost avoided it at all costs. what was it about people? you did not see him doing the talk show circuit. with the exception of a movie. >> he did not have to.
such a presence and personality. so marketable he did not need much outside of his own talent. michael jackson. he also had that shy kind of character. he did not go out and seek hopeless city as much as they came to him. he was multicultural. my wife is from nicaragua. they loved him. very big in europe. very big in asia. he really was one of these lowball figures as an entertainer. neil: david mercer. before we go here. we hope it was not a drug. people will start clawing into
his personal life. they will go into all that stuff. when you look at this in here what you have heard of this, any reflections you would like to have the way you remember him? >> sure. i did attend a concert nearly 15 years ago at the garden. madison square garden. original, classic and timeless. there he was on stage, unlike any other concerts. white shirt, button down, jeans and only his guitar. he had a spellbound for nearly three hours. as if we were in his living room. i do not think that his star will ever dim. he has inspired other artists. the lyrics have spread globally. i think he will stay with us
both in mind and spirit and heart for generations to come. my condolences to fans, particularly the family. all of us are so sorry that we are experiencing his passing. neil: thank you guys very, very much. it is very sad, obviously, when something like this happens. always find it remember odd things about celebrities. odd things in people in general. a lot of his colleagues are saying, you ought to come to hollywood. that is where you go when you make it big. a man of a few words, rents, said, why? he died in minneapolis. his home that he never left. we will have more. ♪
neil: it is official, the entertainer formerly known aspirins is dead at age 57. his publicis confirming. it is profund sadness i'm confirming prince rogers nelson has died at his paisley park residence in minnesota at age of 57. there are no further details as to the cause of death at this time. that is coming from the spokesman of prince. putting him in perspective among musical icons, he has sold over 100 million records worldwide. that already puts him in the top 10 of best-selling artists of all time. he was inducted in rock and roll hall of fame in first year of eligibility. very unusual. "rolling stone" ranked prince as number 27 on its list of 100 greatest artists of all times. others said his crossover appeal in rock and r&b and jazz and
hip-hop. no other artist combined those genres and selling competently in those genres. only beatles beat him out for that. to they to my memory a group of four. no way to verify a lot of these stats coming from no doubt toes who loved him dearly. kennedy, former d.j. knows his reputation. >> neil what a sad day this is. neil: very sad. was there much medical history? i heard about some of the problems he was having flue-like symptoms in were there problems? >> if we were shocked by date bowie passing with his private cancer, david bow wii was kim kardashian compared to prince in living a public life. david bow wii was private person. neil: everywhere. >> prince was extraordinarily private and very shy in his personal life. he didn't like to look people in the eye. didn't like meeting new people. incredibly passionate about his
music and so protective of it. we remember when he changed his name to a symbol to put a thumb in the eye of warner brothers. neil: we think of that, right with taylor swift, others trying to go around these pies. >> yeah. neil: he was first to do that kind of stuff. >> he really was. he was up there with musical legends like frank zappa. frank zappa delivered three full records in single day to get out of his record deal. prince did whatever he could creatively to have more control over his music. that was his prime motivation. the thing so interesting about prince, he wrote some great pop songs. he wrote what was the anthems to my time in junior high when purple rain came out. those with untrained ear, you can appreciate that. people who are true music heads, can dive into his music with song after song, album after album, with great appreciation. his depth and talent almost hard
to survey if you have the untrained ear. you can appreciate it. there are so few musicians who operate at that level. neil: i'm thinking of other very popular artists today, over shyness issue. currently maybe adele, you hear about that with her, very shy. >> yeah. neil: he was painfully so. >> yeah. neil: i wonder if people like that, having concerts, 10 of thousands are there, goes does a grammy concert, everyone watches, he runs out doesn't stick around for the adulation. >> so interesting. that kind of a personality which can really embrace the limelight so publicly, in ways that few performers can even fathom. but in his personal life, so closed off, so dramatically different. that was, is what makes someone like that so interesting. there are obviously operating with a level of genius very few, painters, actors, musicians ever glean or up to.
neil: he was in era, doing music videos and all, he was savvy enough with that that he took it to whole new level. >> even "purple rain." putting out film entirely set to his music, that was personal story. the story of his life and story of his parent and chaos and turmoil -- neil: that was pretty raw. >> the turmoil he experienced in minneapolis with other artists in minneapolis. the fact he got the jam and apolonia and vanity to participate in his films so personally and dot acting along with the music, i don't think very many people could accomplish that today. neil: to put it mildly. kennedy thank you very, very much. to kennedy's point a lot we don't know. you hear other artists rumors they were dealing with illness, case of david bowie he was quietly battling cancer we didn't know that we don't know
what prince was dealing with others will look into personal past. little to tell of this concerts canceled and events quickly shuffled around. nothing to indicate he would be dealing with something life and death. but he is gone. prince is gone at 57.

dieing a couple hours ago at his minnesota estate. we don't know details behind that. what we do know is the world is shocked. shell see clinton saying thank you, my thoughts are with you. neil says we know "when doves cry." keith urban just heard. i can not believe it. shaquille o'neal, rest in prince, peace. another icon dead too soon. readyily apparent to joe piscopo and robert davi who have unique prince connection. during "snl" years he was a guest. >> i remember like yesterday, where we heard, this is before when we first replaced original cast on "snl." eddie was on. all eddie kept campaigning for, get prince on the show. get this guy prince. who is prince? who is prince. neil: what year was this? >> 1980, man.
1980. for one of prince's first network appearance. neil: he wasn't quite as big. >> right. neil: '84 with "purple rain" when he hit it big. >> he came in, small in stature. he floated when he walked. he was so cool. he ripped it up at studio 8-h. nothing impressed my friend eddie murphy. when prince came on eddie was excited prince was there. prince did "snl" 40. jimmy fallon was emceeing it. mccartney was there, neil, everybody was there. taylor swift was on stage. billy, murray, as jimmy fallon, the seas parted and prince kind of floated up on to the stage. he did "let's go crazy" at "snl" 40. neil: how was he personally? was he shy? >> i stepped back, he was friend with eddie. they would talk i kind of felt like the dorky white guy in the corner. kind of stayed away, let it be.
he was always respectful and always nice. seemed shy. neil: robert davi, did you guys share an agent or something like that? robert, can you hear me? >> bob cavallo managed prince for many years the beginning, he became the chairman of disney music who helped me get my deal with universal. bob was a close friend. he managed prince for many years. all during those "purple rain" and prior, really building that wonderfu you know, people have talked about david bowie but i think a big influence for prince also in a certain way was queen. because "bee homian rhapsody" was so ground breaking in musical construct, prince had extend 10 or 12 minute song of "purple rain." he originally went to stevie nicks to help write lyrics. she said this was too daunting
to write lyrics. he wrote his own lyrics. i remember seeing in "purple rain" in 1984. it was such -- warner brothers it was going to do what it did. neil: joe piscopo, you can confirm this, they thought it was a stupid idea. artist views of a life story. come on. >> not to forget, prince was one of the great guitarists of our time, brilliant guitarist. i talk to musicians, think about clapton, jimi hendrix but prince is up there with the best of them as musical artist. neil: one of the things i also know, joe, he was shy, you hear that, but he didn't do any advance publicity for concerts or talk to reporters afterwards. we lost robert, i apologize for that. >> yeah. neil: why was that? >> i don't know. neil: you would think you would want to fill seats which he did by the way without any of that. >> he was quiet and shy.
you hit the eye on the head. he stayed in minnesota. minnesota is great state. people are so grounded. you know it. one thing always struck me, i hear go out to do shows little prince stories. neil: all the background in the pacific and talk to him. this is great out here. no, i'm fine. huge compound, looked like a hotel. >> i didn't see it but i knew he hung out with mutual friends and he would pop up. neil: by the way, i didn't see it either. i have google. that is my first impression. >> seems very grounded but you can't take away of talent of that guy. sheer talent. what he could do with a guitar was pretty scary. as you get older, you are pleased to run across great talent. to be able to see prince in person was pretty awesome. neil: he did things his way. frank sinatra you do impressions, he did it in his
own way even a thorn inside of very industry helped him become big success. >> do we know what happened? neil: we don't. breathing difficulties. he was battling issues over last couple weeks. outside of that i'm sure they're digging into it as we speak. >> too young. neil: thank you very, very much. too young is right. joe piscopo. a little more detail on that and latest, i haven't forgotten other news, cybersecurity conference featuring no less than jeh johnson. much more on that and whatever details we pass along on the passing of prince at 57

homeland security secretary jeh johnson. thanks for joining us. >> thanks for having me, jo. >> a lot of the conference on sigher terrorism and sigher about threat. isis continues to move forward in some ability to dominate online, cyber terror and social media as well. how do you keep us safe online from isis? >> well, through a lot of different things. first of all it's critical that we counter isil's efforts online, on social media, on the internet to recruit and inspire people in the homeland. we've been very involved just since i've been secretary what we refer to as our cve efforts, counter violence extremism here at home. encouraging community leaders to counter the message on social media. encourage tech companies to support that effort and the like. then of course there is always the straight cybersecurity mission that we have to protect cybersecurity, whether it is in
the private sector, the dot-gov world, the dot-mil world, to insure our systems are secure. raise awareness of those who use the system. >> now, dhs's mission is to protect from both material and cyber threat but at same time the fbi just went out reportedly purchase ad way to hack into the san bernanadino iphone. some analysts say that could actually be purchasing a way of cyberattacking. what do you think about that? do you agree that essentially that purchase may have been a little questionable? >> well i wouldn't characterize myself as a technical expert but i do believe our systems are secure. i do believe our ability to communicate is as secure this month as it was last month. there is a lot of cybersecurity around how we communicate, how we use cell phones and the like. and that continues.
what the, what the case highlights though is the issue with encryption. we have a lot of time we're spending in washington talking about encryption these days. in response to the demands in the marketplace, there is more and more encryption and cybersecurity around your ability to communicate with me. that has pushed the pendulum pretty far in one direction where it makes it harder for our law enforcement to detect possible terrorist plots. to detect crime. this is topic, difficult subject we're wrestling with right now in washington. i think there is a solution to this that strikes the right balance between cybersecurity and our law enforcement national security needs. >> but the fbi essentially what you're saying, it was correct in going out and purchasing a way to get into the phone? >> the fbi has a law enforcement mission. it is a valid law enforcement mission and we generally do have
cooperation with the tech sector and others in our law enforcement counterterrorism efforts. reporter: you have been critical of the republican candidates in some of their terrorism and immigration strategies. donald trump is getting very close to winning the republican nomination in number of delegates. what is your position where the rhetoric is going in this campaign as it affects national security? >> well i generally have not commented on rhetoric in political campaigns. what the candidates have been saying. what i have said and what i will repeat is that there are, i knew that was going to happen just as we're talking here. >> yeah. >> here we are in the hudson valley. generally we need to build bridges to american-muslim communities. efforts, rhetorics to vilify, isolate muslim communities are counter to our homeland security and national security missions. so i have spoken out about that.
reporter: developing news today, final question for you. u.s. border patrol says there are more unaccompanied minors approaching and at the southern u.s. border. what is your plan to deal with the increasing pressure there right now? >> we built additional capability over the last two years on the southwest border. more surveillance, more resource, more people. we have done what we refer to as interior enforcement where we're sending people back. we're sending people back to central america at something like fifteen, 16 flights a week. numbers are going up in typical seasonal increase. we'll be pretty aggressive responding to it, we have been. reporter: final yes and no question to you. is there imminent material threat to the united states right now? >> i would say no. we're vigilant tracking potential threats and like. there is homeland security, law
enforcement officials working overtime in this general environment to keep the american public safe. >> secretary jeh johnson, homeland security. thanks for being with us on fox business. >> thank you. reporter: neil, back to you. neil: jo ling, thank you very much, mr. secretary. more details we're learning in passing of prince today. we know he was battling breathing difficulties. he might have issues with the flu that never went away. we're not saying this is case of drugs or anything else. we don't know anything more than. we're looking felled singer causing his death couple hours ago. more statistics information coming out on him. beside 100 million albums he sold. only single entertainer on planet, same week had number one movie, number one single and number one album.

protected his song being used at campaign event too. >> oh, many, many artists do. i don't think that is shocking. neil: let or right. he didn't like them. >> a lot of artists don't want their songs to be politicized or first termed. they want listeners to use them about their lives and making them mean something. neil: he was so shy. >> he was very shy. neil: is that true? >> he was actually a small man in stature. bigger than life when it came to his he can centuriesties. he was quiet. didn't go out a lot. when he was on stage, you don't want to mess with prince. kim kardashian had a little bit of incident. he said dance and kim just froze and didn't dance. it became part of the keeping up with the kardashians, how prince snubbed kim k. neil: is that right? >> yes. neil: how will he be remembered? >> as one of the greatest artists of all time. this man through some generations, through so many decades one song struck a chord
