illustrating kids throwing away the very fruits and vegetables required by the rules. the usda says fines would be used in the most extreme cases and the proposal will improve the program and ensure america's children receive the nutrition meals they need to learn and thrive. the first lady's signature project has proven politically problematic for the white house with rubbles trying to gut the program in 2014. a new bipartisan senate bill is working through congress that keeps some nutritional standards while allowing schools more flexibility. >> we believe that this bill is good news for children. good news for parents. good news for schools. >> it is unclear how happy kids will be with the new bill or standards, although it would be tough for the reaction to get much worse. food under the current rules has earned its own twitter #. a sarcastic thanks, michelle obama, with a picture of the

and even offered emergency counseling in response to students who said they felt intimidated and under safe following the appearance on campus of trump 2016 messages scrawled in chalk. >> everyone is talking about how they're allowed to write trump everywhere because tigts first amendment. but it is our right to speak out against that. to say that we're not okay with that. >> in initially siding with those disturbed by the chalk describings, president wagner cited what he called genuine concern and pain in the face of this perceived intimidation. >> he conceded to the protesters. i felt that he legitimized their claim. i think he should have stood for it. >> reporter: even to prominent liberals, tied with georgetown at number 21 in the university rankings, a national laughing stock. >> i don't deserve to feel afraid at my school. i so badly want to drop kick these kids into a place where

3:38 pm
of your retirement savings. t. rowe price. invest with confidence. donald trump is clearly not prepared to be president of the united states. we know about his comments. >> donald trump's notion of punishing women was just, it was bizarre. it was just a confirmation that he has not thought seriously about the issues facing the country and he is willing to say just about anything to get elected. >> if abortion was outlawed, the person performing the abortion, the doctor, whoever it may be, that's really doing the act.
3:39 pm
>> welcome back. that statement from the town hall that he made about abortion, if it was illegal to punish the woman. and bill o'reilly will have trump on tonight. here's what rush limbaugh that about this. >> matthews asks a question and trump took it literally. he sets up a hypothetical. something that will never, ever happen again. abortion is illegal. mr. trump, mr. trump. abortion is illegal. what happens to women who have abortions? well, trump has to think fast here. two things happen. in micro flash seconds. he thinks, i have to make sure i'm consistent on law and order here. i think what donald trump said is what he thinks republicans and conservatives want to hear. >> this is what he is facing. among women, favorable.
3:40 pm
unfavorable. this is what it was before the town hall. this is the average of reason polls. and ted cruz with the slightly lead over donald trump. we're back. let's bring in our panel. charles lane, opinion writer for the "washington post" and singled indicated columnist charles krauthammer. okay, he was in d.c. today meeting with the rnc. your thoughts. >> i think even in the pre roe versus wade era, where abortion was prohibited in most of the states, women were not prosecuted. only those who performed the abortions were prosecuted. i think he has not thought this through. i'm going to suggest he probably hand even read roe versus wade or the cases that followed it. or summarized by the people who did the reading. if he truly believes this, it is so contrary to american culture. even by the fiercest of pro-life
3:41 pm
people. it is hard to believe that he would think this would get him any votes. rather, it shows a lack of serious thinking about a very serious topic. it was a long interview, this lack of serious thinking is evidence in so many areas. i think this statement alone combined with his likely loss in wisconsin will begin the descend of donald trump's popularity in the republican primary. >> do you know how many times people have said that? >> you're right, you're right. here's what allies and supporters say. he misspoke and he shoots from the hip. it was ram i had fire from chris matthews. he will bounce back. >> of course, rush limbaugh supplied him an excuse. he was just trying to pander is
3:42 pm
what limbaugh came up with. this has a unique problem for him. it managed to offend a group on each side of the issue. it offended the pro-choice people and the pro-life people simultaneously. and nevertheless, you're right. that he has always thrived off the media ganging up on him. so he will attempt to play with that. it was an unusually defensive moment for donald trump. the mere fact that he thought towed correct this time, that was kind of unusual. >> he is and applying it today. congress and his foreign policy people and this meeting at the
3:43 pm
rnc. it is a week however that most people looked at and. there was a successes -- a succession of thing that didn't play well. >> i think that's the reason he's gone to ground. for donald, you go to ground if you only give seven interviews in a day. so he is relatively quiet now. he knows there's no way he can undo the damage of the abortion statement. he has to give it a little time. he'll be on to something else. he will invenl something else later. i have to say something about what rush said. that he was answering a hypothetical. as if someone asked, what would you do if hillary sprung wings and began to fly? hypothetical, illegal abortion is the point. making abortion the no longer legal, having the power of the state to stop it is the point of the pro-life movement. they would like, there is nothing, there is nothing hidden about it. nothing hypothetical.
3:44 pm
it may not happen but it isn't a crazy hypothetical. it is the object of people who oppose abortion. >> and running for president. >> so he is being asked about the object of the thing he says, he now really truly deeply believes in. completely pro-life. well, that's not a hypothetical. that's if you got your way, what would you do? how would you enforce it? explain to us what you would do. it is a straight, the most straight question that you can get. the fact that he couldn't answer it proves exactly what the judge said. >> his week of misery this week in both instances, the victims were women. the perceived victims were women. the flaun sense cal -- i don't think it is a criminal event. it happened because they taunltd and taunted and taunted michelle fields until she filed a complaint. it looks bad because she is a young talented woman.
3:45 pm
then the statement. the poll that you just showed, fantastic number about the statement women should be punished for having abortions. >> the only thing is he still has 739 delegates and only needs 500 more. >> a lot of female supporters -- >> he does still need 500 more. i don't think it is so bad because it offends women of i think it is bad because it is such a central issue of the conservative movement. if he does not know how to talk about it, he shows he's never thought about it. it makes peel who might support him think, what has he actually thought through on any other issue? that's where i think the damage is. >> or the vulnerability against hillary clinton in the fall. next up, does hillary clinton have a date with the director of the fbi? americans...

i did not email any classified material to anyone on my email. there is no classified material. i did not send classified material, and i did not receive any material that was marked or designated classified. >> i should have used two accounts. one for personal, one for
3:50 pm
work-related emails. that was a mistake. i'm sorry about that. i take responsibility. >> i'm not willing to say it was an err in judgment because nothing did i was wrong. >> are you 100 percent confident that nothing is going to come of this fbi investigation? >> i am 100 percent confident. this is a security review that was requested. it is being carried out. it will be resolved. >> so you said at a march press conference in 2015, quote, i did not email any classified material to anyone on my email. there is no classified material so. can we say definitively that that statement is not accurate? >> no. you can't. >> you are just saying it shouldn't have been classified. >> what i'm saying is it wasn't at the time. >> the e. lucien of the answer about email as this investigation continues. we're back with the panel. judge, you wrote about this today. there were multiple reports, not confirmed yet, that an interview will take place soon with the fbi. and possibly they're coming to the end of this
3:51 pm
investigation. what do you think? >> i think that mrs. clinton is currently at the vortex of a perfect storm of legal misery. her senior aids from her years as the secretary of state who are still very close to her have been ordered to testify under oath in two freedom of information act requests. in a discovery context, meaning the ability of the lawyer to ask questions is wide two federal judges. have both suggested conspiracy of the office of the secretary of state when she was there to evade and avoid federal law. add to that in the very same week, the same people that are going to be requested in those two freedom of information act cases are being called into the fbi and asked if they want to speak to the fbi. a very dangerous thing for any lawyer to allow his client to do. after that, mrs. clinton will be called in. she is damned if she does. she is damned if she doesn't.

if she goes in there they will catch her in materialness of representations because she has been making them for a year on this. if she doesn't go in there. she will defy her statement. i can't wait to talk to the fbi, which, of course, they disbelieve because nobody wants to talks to the fbi when you are the subject of one of their criminal investigations. >> chuck, i'm in the political insiders here. the conventional wisdom is that it's just never going to happen. they are never going to indict her. there is some doubt whether the fbi most forward with the recommendation. >> look. the whole thing boils down to the statutes that she might have violated that pertain to the handling of classified information. and the limiting factor that i have identified that seems to argue that she would not be indicted is the very strong requirement that has to be knowing and willful criminal conduct. they have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt whatever she did wrong she did knowingly and willfully. >> the email she said take the headings off. >> that does not involve --
3:53 pm
that does not involve the other elements of these offenses. just let me finish the point here. they have prosecutorial discretion. when petraeus was he lied to the fbi which triggered the whole thing. she is at risk in this perjury trap. that could lead to derivative charge. if it only focuses on just the business about the server, i think what they are going to come down with was a report that said she was very negligent. she made a lot of bad decisions. she risked at love things she shouldn't have but we couldn't prove this crime yard. >> this is a rare criminal statute which this is good or bad is another subject. person could be prosecuted for gross negligence. the government doesn't have to show intent. >> >> can be proven by negligent in this particular statute. >> the ultimate irony is that the reason she embarked on all of this was to hide her communications from the

world, from the freedom of information act. from the congress that was the point. there is no other point in doing this. it's meant to evade subpoenas, inquiry,s congressional committees. and now it's all over the -- everything is out there. we know that 22 of these were i had extremely highly secret and it's, lock, it's a perfect -- the word con dine was invented for this kind of retribution. this is condiant punishment. you want to hide your official acts in the way nobody else has. nobody else would try to. you will be exposed. i think she gets either indicted or there is a criminal referral somehow squashed by the higher ups. i can't see her getting away from this with nothing. >> state department has redacted and declared 21 01
3:55 pm
working emails classified at this point. at least at the confidential level. 44 classified as secret. 22 as you mentioned classified as top secret. the two people involved in this most now are the fbi director jim comey, and the attorney general loretta lynch. when we talked to her she said this is going a pace. she would not answer whether she is the ultimate decider but i assume she is. >> it would be highly unusual for jim comey to conduct the investigation himself but i wouldn't put it past him because is he a detail-oriented guy who has been receiving daily reports on this since they started the investigation a year ago. >> that is it for the panel but not the topic. i'm sure we will be back here. stay tuned as we take a look at a very polite donald trump.
