2:02 pm
jeb bush is hitting back hard at media after a reporter asked him to respond to the college massacre in oregon prompting president obama to renew the call for tighter gun control. here is the fuller context of what the former florida governor said and some are seizing on two words. >> it is very sad to see but i resist the notion and i had this challenge as governor. look, stuff were whats. this is always a crisis. the impulse is to do something and it is not necessary lit right thing. >> the president goes all in on gun safety for the second time in two days as jeb bush shrugs his shoulders. >> bush told us what he thinks this is the price of doing business, stuff happens, get used to it. >> the bush campaign is saying it is sad and beyond craven that
2:03 pm
liberal democrats would dishonestly take governor bush's comments out of context. joining us is chris stirewalt and carol lee white house corporate for the "wall street journal", and joe trippi democratic strategist and fox news contributor. chris, is jeb bush right? this was a media distortion? >> yes and no. taken in a larger context, yes, and there were other comments outside of what we heard where he is being sympathetic and it was a mistake. >> i much ad it five times but it comes off as tone deaf. >> this is an issue for bush that is not just a problem for potential general election but in the primary because republicans are concerned about the persecution of christians. that is attached to this and the idea of martyrdom it is significant. bush should have been kinder.
2:04 pm
>> it reminds me of a long list of exams of politicians who complain the media take them out of context when they say something that boomerangs? >> it reminds me of president obama during 2012 election saying, if you have a business you did not build that and republicans seized on it and the job of the media is to put it into context and not just use the one clip but explain it broadly. jeb bush said earlier about how people need to work longer hours and that was taken out context. he cannot afford these mistakes. >> mitt romney did this. "i like to fire people." ought newspapers have given a full account, some have made it more concise. joe, jeb bush is entitled to his views on gun control laws not needed and most republican candidates agree but is this a sad and crav enact by the media?
2:05 pm
>> look, you cannot say things like this and it is like gambling in the can sent you cannot make the mistake and serve it up and not expect opponents and the press and social media to go crazy. i saw this. i tweeted immediately "stuff happens," will trend and i was wrong, it went everywhere and now you have social media driving that it was tone deaf. now he is stuck in it. you are right, it has happened over and over again with jeb bush. he has really hurt the candidacy because he is not careful about the language. on the other hand, we are in a year where people do not want anyone to be careful about the language. trump said something like this, very interesting, i am sure the media would jump all over it but
2:06 pm
--. >> the ability to laugh it off. >> russia stunning the united states and the world by beginning airstrikes in syria supposedly because isis targets have been struck. let me give a little sample of the polarizing comments on both the left and the right. >> when assad crossed the line the president did nothing. vladimir putin could feel they can walk all over the united states. >> put say this is the only way to fight international terrorism and they are international terrorists, and the act is preventive. no wonder conservatives can barely disguise their jealous admiration for vladimir putin's strong man routine. chris? >> i would say that when the chief spokesman spore the united states said the russians would be no more successful than we were in iraq, we sort of reached
2:07 pm
stupidity on foreign policy and we have now reached a space where every foreign policy question has to be relentlessly political sized, has to be ground down into nothing. >> there is a lot of criticism of rebound but are journalists pressing the republicans on what they would do now instead? >> certainly it is appropriate. that has been a problem for trump. it has been a problem for jeb bush and it has been a problem for some. it is to the advantage of others. i am saying when you talk about that kind of language, that bush lost a war or we lost a war, whatever, we are in garbage space. >> a journalists have short memories and i do not see a lot of reporters saying a couple of years ago obama was moving to airstrikes in syria after they used chemical weapons and there was very little support in
2:08 pm
congress among republicans. >> little support and the white house knew that and they knew they would not win on that. >> but what he was looking to do was specific, go after the assad regime's chemical weapons not try to change the civil war through airstrikes but the dynamics have shifted. we have islamic state taking over vast parts of syria, and russia now is moving in, there is failure of different aspects of the administration's strategy happening now around the same time. the resolution coverage has been consistent. the narrative is the president is being dragged into something he reluctantly doesn't want to do. you are seeing that continue. >> i don't see liberal commentators, joe, defending president obama. i see them criticizing the residence or changing the subject to bush's invasion of
2:09 pm
iraq. >> that will happen. what are you going to say about a situation where there is no good solution? the one thing, the coverage has been off on the allowing of the russians feeling the vacuum that america left. the reality is, syria is their last place in the region. they have been there forever. or been defending assad forever. it should not -- it should -- it is not in the context. in iraq you can make that we left there was a advantage you'll and isis filled it but the russia thing does not make any sense. i don't see any real coverage that makes it clear the context which this is happening. >> you mentioned donald trump earlier and when truck trouble told bill o'reilly three would be happy to let vladimir putin use syria because he could use it as a quagmire and the pundits gasped but could it play differently with the voter?
2:10 pm
>> the libertarian wing of the republican party and rand paul voters. you are not supposed to say that. you are supposed to say, maybe we should not be the police officer are the world and fill in "a strong man from russia will come in and dominate and change the dynamics of the region." >> you but trump comes out and says it. >> the americans are tired of war and our intervention. >> i don't think they are tired of the united states being influential in the region. >> is this the 3:00 a.m. call, re-doing the campaign focus that new there is a commander in chief with the foreign policy receded? >> no doubt about that. the question is, does that last? again, almost always our presidential politics is driven by the economy. yes, it has been put to the
2:11 pm
front burner. this could be where trump gets into trouble. i am not sure what he is saying will help. it depends --. ought past few months things have turned out to be true. donald trump is on the cover of "new york times" magazine today. a big profile. at the top, i dismissed him as a clown and i was too incredibly serious and high-minded so i decided not to write about him and i feel proud about the decision. does that capture early media mindset? >> it reflects the media things they are setting a tone or people think the media is setting the tone and often the voters are telling us what the story is. that is what has happened with donald trump. people thought it was silly and everyone would write him off and they are saying no, he is
2:12 pm
trending for a lot of reasons and getting a lot of support and you are forced to write about it. >> at the love us were just wrong. >> you can weigh in on the topic and the media coverage. is robert redford trying to salvage the reputation of dan rather with his new movie? president obama rushes to make the horrifying mass shooting political, in his words and the media is following the lead.

push for gun control measure. the pundits chose sides. >> this has become routine. the reporting is routine. my response here at this podium ends up being routine. the conversation and the aftermath of it. we are numb to it. what is also routine is that somebody somewhere will comment and say obama politicized this issue. this is something we should politicize. >> i have said with all of shootings, i was really disgusted with the president's comments. his race to politicize it. >> the president feared routine in this, he fears exactly what i fear, how do we come on and treat this as something that is

2:18 pm
and the shooter has not been identified, you do it then ... it is causing a problem. >> it is gross. here is the larger problem. nothing the president is proposing would have prevented this. the coverage and the discussion of all of this suggests that somehow this is is a bill or legislation that exists that the republicans have said we will not pass this legislation that would address this or would address sandy hook. the mistake the president makes and the press continues to make is to propose things that are related to guns and the regulation of them but not to the problem at hand and they are surprised when people say, no, why would we do that? >> there is no magic bullet. the reason for media fatigue is the president proposing action on background checks on limits on magazine ammunition yet everyone knows nothing will happen because congress is

glorify the action. i am torn on this and i worry we are giving some of the psycho paths what they want. >> once is enough, show the name, the picture, and shut up. >> i am torn, too, i don't know the precise answer. people have legitimate right to know the shooter. >> we have to report who the shooter is but for me the third and fourth day stories of a troubled story, i don't care, these are sick people with troubled lives and i don't care. >> i agree but people find that information. >> we need to show it less. >> there are outlets for people who are --. >> television doesn't have to make this a constant refrain because it is out there and anyone with a computer can get it. >> good note to end on, joe trippi, carol three, and chris

2:25 pm
on the "630 minutes," accused president bush of going awol and dan rather said the movie vindicates his view but it is based on a book would cbs fired after retracting the story. >> they did not get this for asking a question. >> someone has to confirm the memos. >> this is not a trial but a hunt. >> we are talking about bringing licks into reporting. >> our story was whether the president fulfilled the service. >> here are the facts: the story was based on memos said to have been written in the 1970s by his late squadron commanders but when outsiders say the typewritten documents looked to be done on a computer, two of the cbs experts told me they warned of red flags they may not be authentic and a texas air
2:26 pm
commander misled cbs about how he got the documents. >> you lied? why would i believe you would not do something else? >> another key source, the supervisor for bush's ex commander said he was "misled," by cbs and believes they are forgeries which toledo this moment on the cbs evening news. >> the failure of cbs to do just that, to properly fully scrutinize the documents and their source led to our airing the documents when we should not have done so. it was a mistake. cbs news deeply regrets it and i want to say personally and directly i'm sorry. >> outside investigation commissioned by cbs found it deeply flawed and rushed to hair because of a zeal and said the key source had an antibush political agenda and the affair was called a black eye for cbs. rather was forced out of the

anchor chair and let go and he later filed a $70 million breach of contract suit against cbs claiming that parent company caved to pressure from the bush administration. he lost. it was a sad ending to his long and colorful career and he has every right to argue that this was political and corporate interference with truth telling investigative journalism. i hope robert redford's movie does not whitewash a t book study in journalistic malpractice. medical expenses. the rest is up to you.

high has not lost any feistiness. we spoke in washington. >> rand paul, welcome. >> in the battle in the senate over government shut down or avoiding one and de-funding planned parenthood you went after ted cruz saying he is done in the senate. what do you mean? >> i wrote not say going after i was asked about different styles. we have different styles. when i disagree i do not call them name or am inflammatory. i am willing to stand up for what i believe but harry reid on the opposite side from me i have good relations with him although he is a democrat and i would not call him dishonest or a liar because it does not further the debate the. >> it was dramaized by the resigning of speaker boehner, some believe in the house of representatives if you are not
2:32 pm
willing to close down the government over planned parenthood or getting rid of obamacare you are not fighting for principles. your thoughts? >> i believe we should exercise the power of the purse and i say we have not been doing enough and we control the house of representatives and the senate and i have been traveling the country and conservatives and republicans are very unhappy we are not controlling the power of the purse. many in washington, dc, will say, we do not have the votes, 60 votes to de-fund things. it is backwards. if you let the spending expire, to restart spending takes 60 votes. >> you have been mixing up with donald trump who treated prediction rand paul is driven out by my statements about him and he will announce 1 percent. the psychiatry from kentucky has the floor. >> rumors of my demise are exaggerated. we are doing quite well running a tight ship around here and we plan on being in for the long
2:33 pm
haul. celebrity will sort of filter out of this. >> you called donald trump a clown. >> there are clown-like things he has said and what is more important, i do believe he is a true conservative. being for higher taxes or single-payer health system are not conservative notions. he was for the bank bailouts and for president obama's government stimulus package. probably the biggest issue that makes me think he is a fake conservative is he is for using imminent domain of government to take property from small property owners and give it to big corporations like his and he has personally profited by having the government do his dirty work of taking people's property and there is nothing jobbive about that. >> your campaign is struggling what do you say? >> look how we do against hillary clinton. you look at the polls we are not
2:34 pm
doing as well as some of the polls but against the democrats we do better than many people in the republican party. we lead hillary clinton in five states that were won by president obama. what does that show? it shows we have the ability to attract independents, democrats and people you need to come to your party if you think you can win the battleground states. >> "time" magazine called you the most interesting man in politics but not so great now. >> a i still think i am the most anding man in politics. >> it is hard for you to breakthrough. >> it is funny, the mood of people reporting things changes but to me, i am the same as i have always been, i talk about the same things, limited government, constitution, privacy, the bill of rights and i continue to sue our crowds grow bigger and bigger so if i did not read the so-called pundits and i traveled the country as i am each day i see
2:35 pm
bigger crowds and more enthrough a. >> you started with a deep skepticism of united states military intervention overseas. with the net from isis and now russia's airstrikes in syria, are you still skeptical of greater united states involvement in syria? >> our founding fathers wanted it to be difficult to go to war so they gave the power to congress to initiate war. my complaint is the president is taking over that power. it is not his power under the constitution. the first thing we cloud is debate, should we be in syria? in iraq? there should be a vote if congress. >> what is your answer? >> i would 10 i don't want boots in the ground to be united states boots on the ground. we had an iraq war and i think it was a mistake. when we have toppled a secular dictator in the middle east we have gotten chaos, the rice of islam and made it more dangerous. hillary clinton's war in libya
2:36 pm
has made it less safe for us. the same goes for assad. we have many people, president obama and hillary clinton and some republicans, who want to topple assad and it would be a mistake. that would allow a power vacuum for isis. >> and there is a 3 percent threshold for the debate putting you in others of not making the rhyme time stage. is that fair for cnbc? >> we looked at the criteria and it looks like it would include us. we see nothing of the criteria they have put forward that would not include us. >> senator paul, thanks for joining us. >> the kentucky senator has slipped before 3 percent in a couple of polls. his

that where i said anyone, it doesn't matter their religious background, if they accept american values and principles are willing to exchange their religious beliefs, i have no problem, why do you leave that out? >> i don't think we do, dr. carson and it was quite clear, i would not advocate we put a muslim in charge of this nation. >> he kept pressing. >> this is fascinating. my reaction, i thought she was hostile. i thought she was harsh and i realized that is the tone a journalist should take. ben carson does that, he stayed is not what he said, and she said, no, it is in 9 the transcript and he said why don't do you that and she said we do, good for her. we have become so used to the late night host interview jimmy fallon we think that is harsh and show has the right

but this has been so nice you are really easy to talk to. >> thanks. that the first time i have ever heard that. >> david zurawik, did they pull it off? >> you showed hillary clinton's best moments. >> they treated her gently last night. very gently. if you saw the other woman in it, in april when hillary clinton announced with the video the night before, she shredded it and blew it up so she had no choice but to try to be inside the joke rather than the butt of it. in that sense it is successful. i am amazed how gently they treated her. they are hard on the republicans and bernie sanders last night. >> that is why i thought it wasn't that funny because they did not make serious fun. that is what you expect on the show but it helps and even hillary clinton said so. >> trevor noah is the new jon
