to vote on it with a simple majority. chuck schumer making a lot of noise about. it is going to be slow going when it goes in the senate. but this is a big move. maria: the moment it happened yesterday with the final two yes votes and they flipped it there was a sigh of relief. because it's been so long in terms of this negotiating process. >> dakin is right. this is like grass growing. they massaged and then it goes back to the house. but at least it's a good step forward. >> you know at the bottom line is, people still don't know what's in the bill. dagen: we are here to tell you. i can go through what's in the bill about the changes. maria: this is something that has been changing so much. we want to get the details. dagen on that coming up this morning. the author of the operator

god mess. i mean, it really is. i don't know how anyone can defend it it fixes upon fixes. it is going to be brought to the floor tomorrow and we'll have a debate and that's how we are going to serve our constituents. >> minority leader nancy pelosi blasted the bill. house republicans are going to tattoo this moral monstrosity. the caucus answer rally against what they call trump here later today. how do you see this? continuing to distract it isn't as bad as nancy pelosi says? dagen: as ever as bad as nancy pelosi says. they are even bigger fear mongers then they have been. i would argue this whole issue of whether preexisting conditions will be covered has been blown wildly out of proportion.
as he pointed out on the program yesterday, under the original preexisting condition insurance plan that president obama bowled out before obamacare took effect. 11000 people applied for that insurance. that's a number of people we are essentially talking about. i want to make clear than in this house bill, the insurance companies will be required to sell health plans to people with existing conditions and people will still keep their kids on their health insurance until the age of 26. the only issue is states can apply for waivers that could impart that can handle preexisting conditions differently and congressmen acting fishy that he got $8 billion over five years to help those people at the state level as the states want this waivers to help them pay for health expenses such as out of pocket costs, people with preexisting conditions. they've taken steps to make sure these people are taken care of.
the individual mandate on so you won't be penalized for that. older americans will be paying more, but it is not out of the round of what the actual health care costs are today. insurance companies can charge under obamacare three times more than the youngest people in health insurance. under this bill it goes to five times. remember, utterly americans are on medicare. that is not covered under the new bill. new tax credits instead of the subsidies and center for health care law. see a lot of taxes go away. the attacks on medical device makers, which is a job killer. maria: dividends which is one of the early ones. dagen: exactly, 3.8% investment on wealthier americans. huge boost to the stock market, but also a huge boost for companies that want to raise money. you make it more palatable to invest.
it's really powerful. dagen: we've got the details of how does this play in your view from a business stand point and boost economic growth. this is a big deal. >> it is. the congressman from michigan talking about fixes on fixes to try and make sure it is much more workable, much more acceptable solution to deliver good solid health care. the preexisting conditions you talk about something important. this administration headed by president trump is really trying to be responsive to the requests out there and get this out there. we know obamacare is failing you talk about pelosi. i didn't think it could be anybody more destructive than harry reid, the schumer certainly up there. true to his stepping up he really is. dagen: we laughed at the business mandate which will free up companies to create jobs.
we had all these companies that cap their levels at 49 because they didn't want to step up. i think that they list a huge burden on small businesses in this country. >> absolutely. >> this is in and of itself a huge taxpayer getting it done. >> is a huge problem in messaging. nobody knows what they get in the bill. they wanted to race into people or give them what they're asking for. that is true here. it's true in the budget that passed in the negotiation. republicans are willing to compromise to get things done. the democrat strategist at her and say what a mess they are. just totally, from my income that there is a story here that's good, working on behalf of the american people. they are reacting to what people want. a simple story about health care here they are going to cover
preexisting conditions, going to address the biggest concerns they have in benefit those people in the economy. maria: chuck schumer and nancy pelosi really wanted to see a government shut down. they are able to say donald trump and his administration are competent. that did not happen. one step closer yesterday. passing a $1 trillion spending bill. the senate to quickly follow suit. president trump and house speaker paul nine hailed it as a big tree because they came so close once again that a non-this decision in the 11 hour. again, schumer wanted to see a government shut down your debt did not happen. >> they turn the tables on republicans and started messaging about a government shutdown, so schumer and the democrats are better at getting their word out to the american people made it a big jury for them.
he did have the republicans on their heels. they are like wait a minute, we did give border protection. we did get defense spending. maria: first time is 10 years. >> they did message that of the day. after that the democrats had a victory. >> democrats are telling the story right now republicans had to get in front of it. it's just a shame. dagen: this is not about whether people will be countered. that was never an issue. everybody is going to be able to buy insurance. it is how it is paid for rather than hiding it in the cost of insurance for everybody and making young people pay more. we are going to actually have taxpayer funding out of the government in the pools at the states decide that's what they want or that some will find it. people will be covered and we'll help you. >> speaker writers in the
crosshairs. the media and the other party is really taking him to task. >> he knows better. >> it doesn't look like him. maria: is kind of fiery french debate to talk about as well. the two candidates in france vied to become the next president of france bashing and what is a vicious debate days before the election. you need those details next. facebook under pressure after the latest earnings report with a closer look at those numbers. back in two nutes time as transcendent continues. ♪

they got every week and improve the process for doing it quickly. interesting they would make this move right here. >> a question for you is great for the job market. another 3000 jobs created almost doubling what he has. how do you see that as a negative for artificial intelligence as we keep talking about digital transformation, artificial intelligence, it's kind of a goodness, badness story news story, isn't it? >> that's an interesting point. you need actual adults to watch out for this stuff. it's interesting because we see security firms that are hired robots to do that kind of digital surveillance. when it comes to facebook, because of his scale, because we are talking about 2 billion, this is a quarter of the world's population. bad things will happen because human beings do that they use. you have to give them credit for
trying to be proactive and getting ahead of the problem. dagen: john, i think it i think it will inform and you can disagree with me or not. ill informed how they roll out new features in the future. what happened, zuckerberg as is the way of silicon valley in general, a launch in vicksburg dogs later. when the bugs and problems involve people committing suicide or revenge murder on facebook sites, they will think twice in the future before they launch them they'd did not understand the full implications of it. >> well, in this case i hesitate to disagree with you. >> okay go ahead or >> i have to disagree with you because you're usually right. in this case, they are moving forward with the video, on this video live programming trying to deal with the consequences as
they go. it is tragic that we see these kinds of things happening. like i said, and audnces as large as their audience, you're bound have problems like this. maria: yesterday a lawsuit blaming social media companies for the 2015th san bernardino attack. targeting google, facebook, twitter, also messages that inspire the terrorism attack. they've been talking about this on the fringe for a while. but there's abilities to these technology companies have in terms of renewing the content online? >> as we see what zuckerberg is doing us is doing with the monitors can be realized as they get bigger and becomes so ingrained in our social fabric, they have to take more responsibility for it. they have to be more difficult waiting out wrongdoers that are using their side are really dangerous activity.
>> one of the interesting things about watching all of this is how zuckerberg is managing his community, keeping people safe, and i'm wondering, a lot of people are wondering if this is a hint he might be running for office. he said now. what is it? maria: he was traveling the other day, this manufacturing stage to also build homes. i was thinking the same thing. >> you got to be a billionaire to become president. you know, facebook is now the fifth-largest market cap stock in the world. it will be interesting to see what he does as solid as well. is he going to go to bill gates to go the delegates they start a foundation and do good or is he going to try to be donald trump and run the world? >> will have to watch and see. and so much.

you're a man or women, you're all dealing with the issues. >> it's all environment. there are certain things women can do that we can't do. we are not necessarily dealing with all bad people, someone needs to respect the culture, someone needs to interrogate the female on target in a different way that we would with the men. maria: you write so much in the book, the operator, it details what it was like firing the shots killing osama bin add lane -- bin laden. tell us about that day. >> i know the majority assumed it was a last mission. it was a one-way mission. we were going to get shot there, blown up, if anybody is going to wait for a team to get to this house and blow the whole thing up is this guy.
we knew we weren't coming back but we did it for the people that died in 9/11, the people that were having breakfast and had a decision between 2500-degrees to jump to their death. that's where we went. we went up the stairs to get bin laden, did he see and make eye contact, i don't know but i hope he saw the american flag patches, we went for those people, that's why we are here, those people that they were not supposed to fight. that's what we do. and that's only chapter 23 of the book. maria: oh, my god. >> that's part of the book but to see the guys facing death, going through their methodical breaching of doors, opening of doors, clearing of stairwells, i was in this position on that mission where i was in the back and i uld watcand i remember feeling, watching cool guys do cool stuff and being crowd. the way they let us -- they let
us all at the stairs, i happened to be at the position, i got a spot where i turned a corner to the right, any soldier, any special oarlter would have done anything i did. i did what the tactics dictated. i treated him as a suicide bomber. i'm tired of thinking about it. let's get over with it. he's going to blow up. let's end it. we turned the corner and he was standing there. i recognized his nose. he wasn't surrendering so i shot him, it was over before it started, it seemed like, i moved the wife to the bed, the kid was in the room, his young child, 3-year-old son. i remember the father thinking, this poor kid has nothing to do with this. other sales were coming in the room and i just -- that's when it hit me, wow, we got him and we might get out.
maria: wow. >> started to sink in, i think we have 34 minutes on the ground. we have a 90-minute flight. if we live 90 minutes we will get 50 years or life. maria: when you shot bin laden, did you make eye contact? >> i looked right at him. i had night vision, when i shot him it was a matter of feet, close -- than you and i are right now. maria: what about when you picked up his bed and brought her to the bed in. >> i was in training, what might tactics would do mode. it was time to move her away. what you want to do and clear the move you want to move them to corner, clear the rest of the room for potential explosives or whatever it is and start setting up for finding the potential intelligence assets and anything lek call, cd's, computers, things like that. this was -- i had already done over 400 combat missions, most
of the team had that many or more than i did. when i moved the wife and kid, other seals were doing their job. what do we do now? now we go find the computers, we have done hundreds of times. you're right, i'm back. yeah, you just shot bin laden, your wife just changed and he was laughing, we got him, let's do this and let's get out. maria: you were on robotic mode, you knew what to do, not really thinking and that's what why you said what do i do now? >> i assumed he was going to be a suicide bomber, i talk thabt in the book in other parts of afghanistan, when a suicide goes off in front of you it's laudier and scarier and permanent than you would think. turning the corner and the training that i had at the seal teams is you see a threat, you shoot a suicide bomber in the head because you need to take him down as quickly as we can.
but then after i stopped it started to hit and sink in and it was surreal and everyone kind of realized we are going to pull this off, all we have to do is not get shocked down in the next hour and a half. maria: incredible. thank you so much. no, i mean, thank you, thank you for what you've done and what you do, you are special and you -- you're trying to be so humble here but it's because of you, the colleagues in the navy and military that we enjoy the freedom that is we do. >> absolutely. maria: operator is the name of the book. pizza hut vetting on itself, millions towards a makeover but would it be enough to turn slumping sales? we will tell you about it, back in a moment

stephen colbert coming up. former chrysler ceo and former home depot ceo bob nardeli with us and maslansky + partners lee carter. >> exciting. dagen: it's exciting. somebody on twitter when talking abt messaging of the republicans, you always leave distortion of the mainstream media. that's their job. i've been trying to get on taxes that have been repealed and i can't find it anywhere. i know some of them or most of them but there are a couple of smaller ones. maria: they should be talking about that, the taxes -- lee: you should be able to google health care and the first thing that comes up the gop's --
10 points you need to know about health care and you cannot find it. maria: dagen told us what the major important points are. aside from your white paper list that you brought earlier, where is it? dagen: right, i can't. hello, gop. lee: speaker ryan, get up. maria: issue over and over, the messaging. joining the conversation former cia director is with us, the ceo and founder of upside as well as the founder of priceline.com jaywalker is with us, texas congressman bryan bavin is with us, jason is here and the founder and ceo of next door.com, anybody use next door.com, it's an interesting company with nirav tolia coming up. first, it's a huge day in the nation's capital and the country as house republicans plan to vote today on health care. president trump is set to sign executive order on religious
liberty before heading home to new york city where he will meet with australian prime minister. kevin at the white house, good morning, kevin. >> good morning, a little health care as washington and speaker ryan, they feel like they have the votes, we will find out sometime at 1:00 o'clock. there are a lot of folks saying what's actually in this, here are key elements i can tell you, a billion dollars over five years to continue to help people with preexisting medical conditions and also repeals all of the obamacare taxes and the overall bill would cut medicaid. republicans calling it a game-changer, democrats say it's a smoking mirror. >> they have made it, put this forward that we have improved the bill. no. it doesn't improve the bill.
and don't let -- this is an insult to the intelligence of the american people but worst than that, it is an assault on the good health of the american people. >> okay, there were a lot of folks on the hill specially moderate republican who is are worried about this idea. they are now satisfied because the bill does have protections for preexisting conditions, also today the president is expected to sign an executive order protecting religious liberty, this is a my juror victory for people of faith around the country and the white house is going to tell you, frankly, this is a promise that was made on the campaign trail and a promise that's been kept. let me show you a bit about what the president will be writing about today and signing into executive order, heels going to make sure that this administration protects and promotes religious liberty and this is important, it'll direct the irs to ease enforcement of the johnson amendment which is if you're not familiar, basically if you here some religious group want to say back a candidate or be critical of a particular person orandidate,
now they c do that and ease it is obamacare mandate for religious objectors to prevent preventive service contraceptives. here when he's going the meet with catholic cardinals and he's going to new york. but for now back to you. maria: yes, he is, back to home city for him. kevin corke at the white house. the president is just tweeting right now. we want to bring you what he's saying, he says watch this, the fake news media is officially out of control, the president writes, they will do or say anything in order to get attention. never been a time like this from president trump. meanwhile fbi director james comey told congressional leaders that he does not regret opening the probe into hillary clinton's private e-mail use before the 2016 election. listen to what he said yesterday. >> look, this is terrible, it makes my mildly nauseous to think that we might have had impact on the election but honestly it won't change the decision. everybody who disagrees with me
has to come back to october 28th at me and would you speak or conceal and i could be wrong but we honestly made a decision between those two choices that even in hindsight, one of the world's most painful experiences, i would make the same decision. maria: this coming after hillary clinton said that he was confident that he would have wor comey's actions less than a week before the vote. president trump responded to clinton's allegations, here is what he tweeted in response. fbi director comey was the best thing this ever happened to hillary clinton, in he gave her a free pass from many bad deeds, the phoney russia story was an excuse used as democrats as justification for losing the election, perhaps trump just ran a great campaign. joining me right now director. >> good to be with you, maria. maria: his most expensive allegations, what did you make of comments yesterday? >> i think he has a point if you
focus only on the few days before the election. i think he handled himself as well as he could in the messy situation. you have to go back to july 11th when he held his big press conference that was extremely condemning of pretty much everything that hillary clinton did and then said, but there's no criminal intent in anyway, it was extremely negligent of her but it wasn't grossly negligent, what -- that situation that he created by his decision back in july to talk about ongoing investigation and to go into it in that kind of detail, if you can tell the difference between extreme negligence and gross negligence, then maybe you be a fbi legal analysts, either of us can be, it's just like, what? [laughter] maria: you agree that he helped hillary clinton. the dems are upset saying that
he got in the way of hillary clinton's victory and yet he actually helped her? >> i'm not sure he helped her in october, but he sure helped her in july. maria: exactly. >> by running through all of the things she had done wrong and you don't need criminal intent to violate the statute that deals with the classification, you can accidentally leave a single sheet of paper on your desk inside a secured facility overnight and if that's not where it's supposed to be, then technically you could be in violation of -- criminal violation of the statutes that relate to classified material. you don't have to intentionally take it out the buildg and hand it to russian agent or something. maria: you're talking about a group that would know that, would know better. i mean, comey -- >> you think? maria: hillary clinton's top aide huma abedin regularly forwarded classified emails to her spouse anthony weiner.
possession of the emails triggered before the election. comey said there were thousands of classified emails sent to anthony weiner, you would think that huma abedin knew that you're not supposed to transfer, forward classified emails to anybody but she was regularly forwarding them to her home computer and it was actually anthony weiner's laptop. >> unless he had a clearance, a relevant clearance and need to know as determined by someone who controlled access to those materials, that was a violation of law, absolutely. maria: yeah. so why was he doing it? i guess there was a story that she we wanted to print things from home, but thousands of emails? >> i don't know. i really lack the capacity to understand quite frankly what american politicians are doing.
i'm much better on terrorists and dictators. i can for some reason get inside their heads a lot more easily. maria: let me k you about susan rice, she's declining to testify before senate subcommittee regarding russian activities durg t016 election campaign. president trump just tweeted this this morning actually, director woolsey, susan rice is refusing to testify before a senate subcommittee next week on allegations of unmasking trump transition officials, not good. what do you think about this director woolsey, do you think her declining to testify that she did engage in improper behavior? what does she tell us? >> she's a private citizen and can take the fifth amendment, but i think she would need to take the fifth amendment and be concerned about her legal situation in order to do this. you don't -- as a former senior government official, if a congressional committee says that has relevant jurisdiction says, hey, come on in talk to us
about this, you really ought to do it unless you're worried about a criminal violation of some sort about what you say and want to take the fifth amendment. maria: let me ask you about the intelligence community right now. obviously when the president first came to office there was real upset and leaking and going on, how would you characterize the intelligence community's relationship with the president? >> i think it's getting better. maria: it is? >> i think it's getting better. not ideal yet but they need to care not so much about their public relations and all that as the law and getting good intelligence and calling it straight no matter who tells you from up the line, hey, you know, this isn't really convenient for intelligence guys to be saying this. unless they are calling it straight and ignoring public relations they are doing a good job. maria: the president has to put seats in there, right, totally understaffed h.
>> he has director of the central intelligence, cia, and he's nominated a director of national intelligence but, you know, it's not as thin as the state department but it's quite thin in personnel. maria: exactly. good to see you james woolsey, thank you for weighing in. we appreciate it. former fbi director james woolsey. queen elizabeth is telling staff een philip is stepping back
maria: welcome back, massive flooding in parts of the midwest and the south. cheryl casone on that right now in details in headlines, cheryl, over to you. cheryl: big weather to talk about this morning, major flood asking occurring in the missouri river and the mississippi river, pretty hard right now, these are pictures that we got from yesterday but the worst of the damage is along some of the smaller rivers in the area, the block river causing the damage in arkansas and missouri. that river is levy breached yesterday and forced residents to leave their homes.

maria: pile on the caffeine. dagen: if it tastes like expresso, i don't know. maria: we will have to do a taste test. details of tax reform and the timeline, the museum of the bible preparing for opening three blocks away from the nation's capital, the details back in a moment. straight ahead you always pay
here is what he had to say while speaking to community bankers yesterday. >> i originally said that i was hopeful that we would get tax reform before august recess. at the time i said it was acombresessive. i guess you say it's even more aggressive now. [laughter] >> i've decided i'm not going to give any other specific dates other than saying, we would like to do this as soon as possible. we probably agree upon 80% of the details. we have the last 20% to figure out and we are exited to trying to get this done fast so i'm hopeful that this gets done this year. maria: joining us to talk more about that is ey, america's vice chair of taxes cait bartin with us. kate, good to see you. >> thank you, maria. maria: paul ryan and the house has a plan and there are similarities, they both want
simplicity. what do you make of the timeline? >> i think we will see a lower tax break and in the nutshell that's what everybody is driving for. >> your phone has to be ringing off the hook asking for advice. what are you telling corporations and ceo's based on what's been ruled out so far. >> sure, that they should continue model out the proposals so they know the impact of their companies, they have to figure out how to get their voice heard . this is an all-time high tax rate and what can you do right now to make sure that you max mice so you're ready when rates go lower. >> what about small businesses, people like me that have subchapters and llc's, how will they be affected by this?
>> right now the proposals are all holistic. i think that's really important. 90% of the business is done in the united states, 50% by income. a significant piece and has to be holistic. >> helps equalize competitiveness. >> levels the playing field. i'm not exaggerating when i say that. maria: that's where the job creation is, small business. it really does represent thell c growth. dagen: how much will it help job creation, how much could it potentially lift people's incomes in the country by targeting corporate tax rates. >> it does a lot. the statistics show if the rate goes down and gets simpler, it will definitely create jobs. maria: we all agree that 15% is probably not going to be the number for the corporate rate because paul ryan is 12%.
what about the pass-through rate, what about the small-owned operating businesses, do you think they'll still be at 15% which is what donald trump wants? >> no. maria: that goes to 20% too? >> could go even a little higher, 25% contemplated in the blueprint. making sure that people are not manipulating the choice. maria: how do you know that not everybody turns llc, what's retained earnings. >> exactly. >> let's talk about $2 trillion offshore. maria: actually donald trump says it's 5 trillion. he told me two weeks ago. you keep saying 2 and a half maria. >> he always thinks big, between 2 or 5 trillion --
maria: 2, 3, 4, 5. >> it's only trillion. how will that be handled with the proposed tax? >> what's contemplated it's a mandatory repatriation and so that means they'll be a tide on the earnings, rate 3, 8 or 10% but companies are preparing for that right now. >> yeah. maria: steven mnuchin said, is it 10%, 12%, or 8%, he said you're in the right neighborhood. that's -- listen, let's talk about that. the rate right now is 35% and they're going to 10%. you have to believe that the companies take the money back to the united states. $250billion of cash, apple. dagen: 90% is overseas. >> apple talked about a billion dollars of job creation. one of the things we should include a percentage of that y has to be incremental to
the current corporation's budget for job creation and they ought to be able to track it to make sure it's being redeployed along with infrastructure. >> infrastructure is key. private-public partnerships to get the infrastructure going in the country. that'll be key. lee: do you think the growth will be enough to pay for all of this in. >> well, it depends on the rate. if it's in the 20's, it mathematically it could work out. maria: it's hard to imagine how much it would cost. 3 to $7 trillion. i mean, 3 to $7 trillion in terms of cost tax plan, we don't know what deductions, we just don't know the details. how do you know how much it costs. dagen: we don't know the income brackets for the individuals. >> yeah. >> a lot of negotiation to come. maria: we know it's three back ets it's what the president wants. >> you guys do a great job and
you're at the center of this discussion, kate, it's good to have you on and be able to advise the corporations. maria: kate, there. marine la pen and emmanuel macron facing off for debate. we have the latest poll numbers next. stephen colbert is responding online after bashing donald trump during the week. critics are calling for the late-night host to be fired. back in a moment ♪ predictable. the comfort in knowing where things are headed. because as we live longer... and markets continue to rise and fall... predictable is one thing you need in retirement

stephen colbert is responding to calls that he should be fired over the comments he made over president trump. >> if you saw my monologue on monday you know i was a little upset with donald trump for insulting a friend of mine. at the end of the monologue i said a few choice insults. he has jokes -- i had jokes he has the lunch code. we want to keep this with france right now. marine le pen entry one square off last night. ashley, what a race this is. take us behind the scene. >> if you saw the hillary
clinton and donald trump debates were a little testy what we saw last night for two and half hours on national television to get to a whole new level. emmanuel macron and marine le pen holding to insults the whole two and half hours. meanwhile macron calling him dangerously nationalistic. they did manage to talk about some of the key issues including terrorism. but not surprisingly they did not agree even on that. the security and terrorism is a vital issue. totally absent. >> terrorism is never about falling into that trap of civil war. that's what you're offering at your offering by dividing the french people.
>> did the debate make any difference. where they persuaded one way or another. as it stands the french pundits all agree that macron probably one of the debate. it looks to be safe going into sunday's vote but you never know and let's not forget brexit. anything could happen as it stands macron is certainly the favorite. you wonder if she's can come and take this. how do you think there reacting to the debate last night. we ask a lot of people today we just woke up with look up with about five or six people on the street most of them say they do not like either candidate. they don't like macron they believe he is still the establishment.
they think le pen will take the country in a very drastic direction. i should also point out this coming monday is a holiday which means that some of your vote is the in the biggest cities like paris. it's also could contribute to low voter turnout. it's not over till it's over. it's so similar. >> in the polling numbers it's clear right now that macron is ahead of le pen they are going to show up out there. over 70% of people who say they are voting for macron are not certain that's how they will vote on the day appeared when i'm more concerned about the looking at the other line issues that are driving the selection. do people feel safe in
france. do they want stronger borders what are they looking for. what do you think is the mood over there about what issues matter most to the people. >> certainly terrorism and the borders. the economy is a huge one. the unemployment rate still remains at around 10%. there is a belief that macron with his proposals could do something to help. his record doesn't speak exactly highly for him. i think macron's arguments that if you close the borders fine but there are countries that are being hit by islamic terrorism who had close borders. he is calling for more police. what's interesting is the support for marine le pen have seen industries and factories
close. they are more tending to vote for marine le pen. the elitist bill for macron. what about the undecided there's about one and five voters still undecided. the older people in this country tend to side with the establishment more than the national front. she's having a hard time attracting voters outside of her own support. we talked about how much of this is not a boat for the candidate but about on the eu and a potential exit like we saw in the uk. how much is that discuss and how doublet well that be in this. the issue is very big. don't forget that marine le pen said we will put it to a referendum like the uk did. when she was pushed on that in the debate last night she
looked very confused and had to refer to her notes on a couple of occasions. with exactly how all of that would work. i think the people in france would vote to state in the european union. i real do. what happens to the eu. what about rioting around this. what kind of preps or even being done in that anticipation of that been happening. after the big storm of the debate very quiet. you can probably hear the music. it will be a big concert called face the hate. the overriding feeling here is a they don't like either
candidate. neither of them have a candidate in this race which is in and of itself a major development in french politics. a lot of people see that and they just don't know if they're going to vote. great reporting as always on the ground. coming up ms at 13 gang members are charged with attempted murder. two of them illegal immigrants. we will tell you that. the actor's last movie he completed before his death and now has an official release date. details coming next. we are back in a moment.

theaters on may 12. it's pretty interesting. it's a privately funded museum of the bible. they said the goal shows how the bible has affected america and the number of ways including not just the history of the country but civil rights, and fashion. they put about 3200 pound full scale replica of the liberty bell. no apologies from stephen colbert. doubled down on his attack on the preside. you ow i was a little upset with donald trump. so at the end of that monologue i have a few choice insults for the president in return. i don't regret that. i believe he can take care of himself. i had jokes, he hasn't launch
codes. this comes after he put himself in the middle of a major controversy in monday night's show. watch. >> i call it disgrace and the nation. you more people marching against you in cancer. when asked off-camera about his comments he said this. that is all from shauna spicer. thank you very much. >> i don't know if people even think this is funny.
however it's a second something that sean hannity was seen on twitter last night we are going to say boycott and fire him. if you don't like him don't watch them. that's not free speech. and that's not what conservatives are. those are weapons of the left. i do think it is disgraceful. i do know people who thought it was hilarious. there are people really hate donald trump that think that is funny. that's their right but it's our right to say and i can watch anymore.
you're supposed to be in the same industry in the same community. all is doing is creating more social unrest in our current bidding. -- country. in a culture can't speak at the university of california at berkeley he said the first amendment doesn't protect hate speech. that is what the first amendment protects. it's sad that we have to use that. the media and the left hate donald trump. look at what the democrats said just the other day. they look at a spending bill and say this is our victory.
we will continue to obstruct the president's agenda as if that is what the people want. they want to see progress in terms of health healthcare reform and tax reform. why aren t democrats getting this. they are losing themselves. they're so upset over donald trump. how will did actually work for her. that cycling to work for them. people are tired of the intake message. it would be great if they do work. coming up this week and on weekend on wall street week. here's here is what she said about tax reform.
