2:01 pm
hosted muse parties and gave concerts. the singer-songwriter whose name was prince rogers nelson was wrote his first song at age of 7. his 1984 album, "purple rain" sold 13 million copies in the u.s. spent 24 weeks at number one on billboard chart. his film of the same name won him academy award and grossed $80 million. prince simultaneously at number one album, film and single. he sold 100 million albums making 7th best-selling artist. he had 30 grammy nominations, golden globe and academy award for music score of "purple rain." we have the host of in the fox light, and carley shimkus, reporter for "fox news headlines 24/7". on a very sad day.
2:02 pm
michael, begin with you. we knew he had flu and had a emergency landing of the plane, very dramatic. he gave a concert the next day. what is your reaction? >> shocking and sad. i haven't felt like this since passing of whitney houston. one of those you can't believe it. his impact on music business will go on for decades. so many young artists he influenced. see on twitter with everyone reacting. >> ashley: was really prolific. >> gender boundary, sexual boundaries and business. he is one of the first artists to fight for control of his own content and creative music. ashley: let me bring in carli to get her response to this. shocking news, carly? >> it is really is. outpouring on social media is unbelievable.
2:03 pm
really something i've never seen before. this is breaking story which obviously means it just happened. 1.5 million tweets sent out with his name in it. celebrities running gambit of music industry. demi lovato. lynn miranda, keith urban tweeting out their support and sorrow. more importantly, regular people, just like you and me are also tweeting as well. there are pictures being posted on twitter. people hugging, trying to wrap their brain around just what happened. he meant so much to the community that he lived in minnesota. it is really interesting, even though he was a big music industry celebrity he stayed in that small town. that is one of the things that made him so special. why he is being mourned across the country today. ashley: really good point. paisley park is 50 miles southwest of minneapolis. he was born there, lived there his entire life.
2:04 pm
he came out of the music scene in minneapolis, didn't he? >> that is what i love about him so much. he was grounded. you don't have a can year for 30 years. he never went hollywood or got into the new york scene. he dated big-known stars, kim basinger, madonna, carl men electra. never went hollywood. hometown boy born in minneapolis. ashley: he was considered a perfection shunnist in the studio. he pushed the boundaries. his music was pop, rock, funk, it was everything. >> for music it was personal, it was art. artists like that last 30 years, they're very detailed oriented by nature. i think that is fair to say. ashley: carley, his first album was released back in 1978. he was still relevant in today's music scene which isn't easy to do when musical tastes change. >> he sure was.
2:05 pm
even though you're right, he was grounded, he was also this larger than life person, wasn't he? you're always a little curious about him. he was very shy. what does is he really thinking? i think that spoke to a lot of people. like you said, 100 million records worldwide sold making him one of the best-selling artists of all times. that means this man ace career had staying power. a lot of people certainly don't. a larger than life celebrity passed away today. >> carli makes a great point. he was so shy. a lot of celebrities and artists put everything out there. while he was out there there was mystery about him. that was part of his greatness. ashley: there was a spell where he dropped his name and use ad symbol. people thought he was out there. >> added to his appeal. ashley: and his mystique. >> you know you're big in the business by one name or ashley. ashley: not going to work. >> that was part of his dispute
2:06 pm
with warner brothers. ashley: he was in a dispute with the label. you will not get my name on the record, you can just have a symbol. >> yeah. ashley: interesting stuff. >> that album on top of the itunes chart right now. ashley: that is amazing too. incredible. he was also not only a perfectionist and prolific as we said. he was brilliant musician. i don't know whether he got the credit. he could play, nine, 10, 11 instruments. i think he was brilliant guitarist. >> incredible guitarist. ashley: and underrated. >> so many future musicians he probably influenced. ashley: yeah. >> his legacy will be all of us walking around today humming his music and all-stars with belated gaga or sheena easton who he created, that is his legacy. ashley: very sad day for music. carley thanks for joining us. michael too. a tough year for music world, glenn frey, merle haggard, david
2:07 pm
bowie and prince. if we have more details we'll bring them to you. also breaking now, rnc rules committee meeting in a luxury seaside resort in florida. of course it is luxury. messy fight for the convention as candidates doing their best to woo party leaders, woo. peter barnes is live outside of these meetings. peter, what are you hearing about today's event? reporter: well, ashley the meeting of the rules committee has just gotten underway here and it will discuss some proposals to change the rules for the republican convention in cleveland in july. some of these ideas have been floating out there and are controversial. rnc chairman reince priebus any major rules changes will be tabled until the next meeting of the rules committee which will be the week before the convention begins in cleveland in july.
2:08 pm
he says the environment is toolyally-charged to move forward with any of these -- politically-charged. there could be fireworks in the meeting as members try to make their positions known ahead of the convention. that has gotten the candidate attention, we had ted cruz and john kasich got off the campaign trail to come down here and personally meet with and lobby rules committee members and other party leadership and donald trump is not out of the game either. he sent his top political strategist, paul manafort down here to lobby and meet with a lot of these republican bigwigs. he will be making a presentation to some of them later this afternoon after the rules committee is, wraps up his work here in florida for today. ashley? ashley: all sorts of maneuvering going on, peter barnes tracking it every way. peter, thank you very much. cruz and trump campaigns taking
2:09 pm
quite different positions on the nomination process. >> what is clear today is that we are headed to a contested convention. nobody is able to reach 1237. i'm not going to reach 1237 and donald trump is not going to reach 1237. >> it is a rigged, crooked system that's designed so that the bosses can pick whoever they want, and that people like me can't run. it is a rigged system. it is rigged for lobbyists. it is rigged for donors and rigged for the special interests. it is dishonest. ashley: i think he believes it's rigged but trump seems ready to play that system now. hiring a new political director. he will play the game. rick wiley hosting a series of private meetings in florida hoping to clear the path to a trump victory. all right here to discuss it, joining me now, republican strategist ford o'connell, and
2:10 pm
democratic strategist matthew littman. thank you both for being here. ford, let me begin with you. i would imagine it seems like the rnc under a lot of pressure right now but if they start changing any rules then it really does feel like it's rigged. >> that is the perception, ashley, that is absolutely correct. this is the big thing under discussion for the 55 rules committee. will they go by u.s. house rules that govern convention or roberts rules. it is lot of minutia. if you go by the u.s. house rules, current easier in place, easier for white knight candidate to get in here. if i'm cruz or trump i want to go by roberts rules. that will be big question not right now in hollywood but will be discussed in cleveland a week before the convention. ashley: matthew, what is your take in all the process? should the process be more transparent around perhaps simplified a little bit? >> here is what i wish i wish they would get rid of primaries all together. i don't need to make decision, i
2:11 pm
rather parties pick candidates to go to the general election. this process is so time-consuming there is so much money involved. i'm not sure there is real benefit to voters actually going through this you will say this, if trump is close to the 1237 does seems to me if he has to get that nomination. does seem like, i see cruz saying otherwise, he is either going to get there or be pretty close to it. >> ashley, here is the great irony, trump keeps screaming it is rigged, it is rigged in his favor, he has gotten 38% of the votes and 46% of the delegates. he doesn't like -- democracy is power, exercised through direct or indirect representation. that is the part trump actually has a good point on. it is democratic, not undemocrattic. itbe more democratic. that is something we need to pursue on republican side going forward. ashley: matthew, quickly change topics. i want to get to next tuesday,
2:12 pm
super tuesday iii i guess it is. we have five states, the i-95 corridor states if you like. is this do-or-die from bernie sanders? i heard language from the campaign well, we'll take a step back after next tuesday and look at big picture. that seems like language we'll start making our move out of the race? >> so they should have already been doing that to answer your question, ashley. after new york there is really no path to victory for bernie sanders. now they will look what happens next tuesday. bernie sanders would have to win something like0% of the -- 70% of the vote next tuesday to get toward where hillary is. that is not going to happen. they need to think about now what kind of legacy the sanders campaign wants to leave. ashley: talking about people that should stay in or get out, what about john kasich. he is hanging on for dear life. maybe on third or fourth ballot
2:13 pm
he could be haven't all nominee. is that pie-in-the-sky thinking? >> only real argument john kasich has he is doing better in head-to-head polls in match up with hillary clinton. if john kasich hang his head on that, why can't marco rubio won more delegates and states, better than kasich particularly in all important state of florida? john kasich is on lifeline. the good thing, ted cruz is mathematically eliminated as well on first ballot. >> can i say this? ashley: go ahead, matthew. go ahead. >> if your backup plan is ted cruz you're in a lot of trouble. >> the great thing is, matt, that i want bernie sanders to stay in there, one thing he is actually done he is made the democratic base hostile to hillary clinton. as long as her negatives go up the better off i am in november. ashley: we could go -- >> actually, ford makes a good point. bernie staying in the race he is attacking hillary all the time. yet in the polls we do see
2:14 pm
hillary is trouncing trump by double digits. ashley: many days -- >> 270 electoral votes. ashley: so much to talk about. thank you so much, ford and matthew, for joining us this afternoon. coming up, former presidential ron paul is here. he battled republican party four years ago at the convention, he says donald trump is right. the system is rigged. so what advice does he have for "the donald?" singer-songwriter prince, dead at age of 57. mtv vijay and host of "kennedy" on fox business will be here to talk next about prince.

2:19 pm
ashley: your reaction to this news? >> i was really devastated. i was really heartbroken, put it up there, finding out when mca from the beesty boys died and david bowie. sad we lose david bowie and prince in the same year. you know the kind of muse genius spans generations whose influence is felt so deeply by artists that you know, you and i know and love. ashley: yeah. >> the fact that they're gone and the music stops today and now becomes history, it's stun any but i guess the one positive aspect it allows you, this reflective time to look back on a life and a career that was often times misunderstood. this is person who taught himself how to play guitar, piano and drums. ashley: he was brilliant. >> starting at age seven. self-taught and played all
2:20 pm
instruments on his first five albums. incredibly prolific artist. just about an album a year he put out where you know, think about it, most artists wait two or three years. ashley: 39 albums in 35 years. amazing he has been around for 35. he had a bit of mystique. he went as a symbol instead of his name with the dispute for the warner brothers label. he pushed boundaries many ways, socially, politically, and certainly musically. it was funk, it was pop, it was rock. he was right up to the very end was trying new things. >> he was trying new things. trying new things at time a lot of cultural warriors were trying to keep those performances down he was very sexy performer. he talked about sex very openly. and that was thing that it was so forbidden in some genres. he was like, you know what i will talk about this, will sing about it.
2:21 pm
had explicit lyrics and song titles. at end of his life became very conservative and very religious. so the pendulum certainly swung for him musically and professionally and personally. ashley: it is interesting. because he was born in minnesota, minneapolis. stayed there his entire life. he didn't, you know, go off and live in l.a. or come here to new york. he stayed. he was very loyal to minnesota. he came out of the minneapolis music scene and remained loyal throughout his life. >> he did, absolutely. you know i think that is testament to his shyness and testament to his oddness which i think one of great things about him. ashley: sure it was. >> the fact that he was so personally eccentrics made i am so difficult to define. that made you over and over again to the music trying to glimpse who he was as a person. ashley: a huge loss for the music industry. as you say he was terrifically
2:22 pm
influential for some other people and helped so many other people. producing for them, writing songs, promoting people who can thank him for his career. >> he won a grammy for the chaka khan hit, i feel for you. people think that was chalka khan, prince wrote that. shin made o'connor. ashley: another classic song. kennedy thank you very much for being here. don't forget kennedy will have a live special 8:00 p.m. eastern right here on fox business on the life and death of prince. you do not want to miss that, kennedy, thank you. coming up former presidential candidate ron paul will be here. he battled the republican party four years ago at the convention. he says donald trump is exactly right, the system is rigged! what advice does he have for "the donald?" we'll ask him next. my dad gave me those shares,

2:26 pm
my next guest says these rules were made to be broken. he agrees with donald trump, that this is a rigged system. remember rule 40-b, the one that requires a candidate to have majority of delegates in eight states in order to be on the convention ballot? well, that came about because of former congressman ron paul. people feared he might have a shot derailing mitt romney's nomination. guess what, they came up with the rule to stop him. with me now dr. ron paul. thanks so much for joining us. what are your thoughts on today's meeting? so much is made of convention rules. it has the feeling the whole thing is rigged and being decided by a bunch of people in a smokey back room. >> sounds like a conspiracy to me. has gone on for hundreds of year. it is not a surprise. i do agree with trump that the system is rigged but right now it is rigged in his favor. he is benefiting by it.
2:27 pm
the rules changed. the rules changed when i started out and right in the middle they changed the rules took advantage away. advantage goes to the leader. he is the leader, and representing the so-called party so they're rigged in his favor keeping out challenges. this time challengers that want a establishment republican. it is benefiting him tremendously. i don't agree plurality would give you all the delegates. otherwise you squeeze any challenger out all together. ashley: right. >> i think people should have a choice but to change the rules like that is just not right. they still will want to change the rules. i don't think they're going to get away with it, but right now, they have been rigged in his direction and he has benefited by it so far. ashley: so as you look into your crystal ball, you're an absolute veteran of politics, how does this whole thing play out, do you think?
2:28 pm
does trump get very close to 1237 and win it on the first ballot at the convention? >> i don't know. it is pretty strange because i think most republicans are realizing the disaster will occur if he is elected. right now the polls show that it really helps hillary out the best. so i don't know how that ace going to work. if he misses it by 100 votes or so, it will be really hard for the republicans to change their rules then. i mean it would guarranty that the trump people won't vote for the nominee. in my case i had less numbers and but people who supported me were very, very energetic. i don't think they went to the polls. probably made a difference, i think it helped defeat romney the fact that they didn't treat us right and fairly. they ought to work on treating people fairly, more than conspiring to get hand-picked candidates up there. that is not the way system worked. it never has. it has been that way as long as
2:29 pm
i remember and will continue. right now the republican party is in a box right now for sure. ashley: on the rules issue, if they don't touch rules and leave them way they are? isn't that a fair thing because every candidate has to play by the same set of rules? >> i think under the circumstances that is what they should do. even though those aren't the rules. i think rules that existed during the campaign in 16 before they changed rules would be much fairer. the way it is set up now it is biased to be in favor of the head candidate. just happens the head candidate trump is not suited for republican leadership. so you know, under these circumstances change in the middle, i don't especially like that but these rules, these rules don't mean a whole lot. and when you come down to deciding that even these campaigns don't mean a whole lot, not intra-party campaigning but both party, when you find out that policies never change.
2:30 pm
we keep doing the same thing. i've been watching this for a lot of years, regardless of who wins, government gets bigger. they spend more money. the debt gets bigger whether you have a ronald reagan or an obama. they keep spending money. they start more wars. they violate our privacy. so that should be issue, not the technicality of these rules because they're rather minor compared to big issues. ashley: true but i know what you think about donald trump but at the very least you have to admit he brought this tanks, brought people into the political process normally would have no interest at all. it is putting highlight and emphasizing things that just don't work well? >> yeah, i like that. i enjoyed that too, to a degree, but, the bottom line is, what do they believe in? do they believe in using nuclear weapons if necessary to stop isis and some of the other crazy
2:31 pm
things and 35% tariff taxes, torturing people. you know, that is a big difference. bringing people in like that. is that what really they want? so, no, i would much prefer a campaign dealt with the issues a little bit more seriously than they have in this campaign because this is all been fluff. just think how much time was spent on somebody bumping into somebody else and there is a lawsuit. ashley: yeah. >> i am suing him and everybody will get sued and trump's been good diverting attention away from serious issues. he can say crazy stuff. but then he will make accusations and media love it. they say, did you hear what he said? i get, tell you the truth i get pretty tired of that. has nothing to do with important issues of the day. ashley: we'll leave it right there. dr. ron paul, thank you as always for joining us today. we appreciate it. >> you're welcome. ashley: coming up, voters in five states head to the polls next tuesday and there are a lot
2:32 pm
of delegates at stake. donald trump now the only republican running who can actually get to that magic delegate number of 1237 but can he do it? what about bernie sanders? will tuesday be his last stand? plus this one, the longest drug trafficking tunnel ever discovered on the southern california border with mexico, nearly half a mile long, outfitted with a elevator and even ventilation system. unbelievable, one tough cop bo dietl will be here on our very broken borders. stay with us, back in two. ♪ i don't want to live with the uncertainties of hep c. or wonder whether i should seek treatment. i am ready. because today there's harvoni. a revolutionary treatment for the most common type
2:33 pm
of chronic hepatitis c. harvoni is proven to cure up to 99% of patients who've had no prior treatment. it's the one and only cure that's one pill, once a day for 12 weeks. certain patients... can be cured with just 8 weeks of harvoni. with harvoni, there's no interferon and there are no complex regimens. tell your doctor if you have other liver or kidney problems, hiv, or other medical conditions, and about all the medicines you take including herbal supplements. taking amiodarone with harvoni may cause a serious slowing of your heart rate. common side effects of harvoni may include tiredness, headache and weakness. i am ready to put hep c behind me. i am ready to be cured. are you ready? ask your hep c specialist if harvoni is right for you.
2:34 pm
2:35 pm
2:36 pm
2:37 pm
>> well, i called him disciplined donald, but i didn't say he was going to be a boy scout. but trumpian standards, that that doesn't really amount to much. i think the tell here is his twitter field. he's not tweeting as much, and he's not calling his rivals or the journalists who displease him idiots and losers and clowns, so i do think he's toning it down despite those nicknames. ashley: but does that hurt his support? you know, people love him because he's authentic. he doesn't speak like a politician, he doesn't have much of a filter and just speaks what he thinks. that's been his appeal. if he tones it down, does he lose a bit of that appeal? >> a bit of it -- great question, by the way. and that's sort of the needle he has to thread, because he doesn't want to lose the guy who
2:38 pm
says whatever's on his mind, says what people are thinking, is brash, is new york. that is part of his appeal. but he's already got most of those people, and there did come a point in his campaign where he was, you know, giving different answers on abortion and insulting senator cruz's wife where he needed to pivot to a somewhat more restrained style. this morning he was on a today show town hall, he was asked about the north carolina law on transgender people in bathrooms, and he said he didn't think the bathroom policy needed to be changed. he could have been more inflammatory on that. and when asked a question about harriet tubman going on the $20 bill, he managed to say -- this was very diplomatic -- because that harriet tubman was terrific, but he thought andrew jackson should not be evicted from the to. ashley: is he getting coaching, or is he really his own man? >> i'm sure the more seasoned gop operatives that he's bringing in are helping him a bit to play the political game
2:39 pm
and avoid being unnecessarily inflammatory. but look, nobody tells this guy what to do. [laughter] some of the pundits say, well,ing his strings are being pulled by these consultantings. no, i don't think so. trump is smart enough to realize that the old style took him about as far as it was going to go, and after he lost wisconsin, he needed to make a mid-course adjustment. this is very common within presidential candidates. then he wins new york by 60%, so i would say what i call toning it down for him at least is working so far. ashley: thank you so much, howard kurtz, we appreciate it. don't forget to watch howie on media buzz at 11a. and 5 p.m. eastern every sunday, "media buzz." donald trump saying he's the only one with a real path to the gop nomination, and trump is, by the way, the only gop candidate left who can actually reach the magic number of 1237 delegates. but to do that, he still has to snag 58% of those remaining delegates.
2:40 pm
so the question is, can he? we're asking hoover institution fellow jeremy cowell that very question. jeremy, is it out of the realm of possibility that donald trump could get at least 58% of the outstanding delegates? >> thanks, ashley, for the question. i think it's certainly not out of the realm of possibility, but nor is it as likely as it's being played in the media right now. i think the reality is everybody who is actually counting the delegates pretty much expected donald trump to do exactly what he did delegate wise in new york. everybody who's counting the delegates expects him to essentially sweep next week too. it's when indiana hits the following week and a bunch of states that are a lot less favorable to donald trump that we'll be ending the campaign with, it's those states that he's going to have to overperform if he's going to get to 1237. ashley: have you ever seen a race hike this, jeremysome. >> it's crazy. i mean, if you'd told me it was going to be ted cruz the voice of the more moderate-reasoned --
2:41 pm
[laughter] kind of wing of the party, i would not have necessarily believed you at the beginning of the campaign. but certainly, trump has thrown out the rulebook. as you point out, he's very good tv, and i think he uses that to his advantage. i think from a conservative's perspective, however, it's not quite as pun at times. ashley: no. >> certainly, he's good for ratings. ashley: he certainly is. we love him for that, but it's been a fascinating race. let's get to the rules issue quickly, jeremy. look, donald trump has put out a lot of statements saying the system is rigged, you know? i'm winning more votes, but i'm not getting the delegates i deserve, but that's the way the system is. there is some pressure under the republican national committee or who are meeting in south florida right now as they look at the rules system. if they do make changes, doesn't that play into donald trump's claim that the whole thing's rigged and kind of changes the goalposts all the time? >> well, i think it certainly does, and i think it's
2:42 pm
interesting. the backers of ted cruz who actually are aligning with donald trump on this because i think they both have an interest in seeing that the spirit of the current rule at least is upheld which is you have to win eight states, essentially, to put your name in there for nomination. and i think there's a lot of concern on both of their parts and not without reason, the more establishment voices in the party9 are going to attempt to play games and attempt to kind of weaken that rule -- ashley: right. >> -- in some respects. there's all sorts of parliamentary things they could do, i personally think that would be a suicidal move in the party, but there are some in the establishment who don't agree with me. ashley: interesting. jeremy carl, thank you so much for joining us. we appreciate it. >> thank you. ashley: coming up, incredible video of the longest drug tunnel ever discovered on the southern california border with mexico. it's half a mile long, it's equipped with an elevator and a complex ventilation system.

our broken borders, bo dietl, former nypd detective and fox news contributor. thanks so much for being here. seems like every other week we find one of these tunnels. you can't stop it. this clay-like soil is perfect for digging, so just like, you know, they can make a whole series of tunnels. >> well, you know, they had this problem over in israel, and they have -- ashley: yeah, hamas, yes. >> we should borrow the technology where they can scan the area and see for tunnels. ashley: yeah. >> what bothers me is not just the drug aspect of this. obviously, the aspect of bringing illegal gang members, people into the country. now you can go right through the tunnel, it's like a bus ticket. get a bus ticket, walk through the tunnel, you're in the united states, and when you pop out, all you've got to say is i've been here since 2014. and you know what they do? they release you. this is the i new obama thing with the whole dream sequence he's in, what do you call that, the dream act? ashley: yeah.

2:55 pm
