tv   Americas Election HQ  FOX News  May 15, 2016 1:00pm-2:01pm PDT

1:00 pm
hit or miss, be sure to tweet it at us. that's it for this week's show. thanks to my panel and all of you for watching. hope to see you right here next week. hello, everyone. welcome to america's election headquarters. >> i'm eric shawn. we start this hour with the latest news. in the wake of last week's paul ryan sit-down, top republican advisers announce they're set to meet with donald trump's campaign this week. >> also, police saying the suspicious device that caused an evacuation at a manchester, england, soccer stadium today was not dangerous after experts carried out a controlled explosion. and isis now claiming responsibility for this week's suicide bombings, a string of them in baghdad that have so far left more than 100 people dead.
1:01 pm
the terrorist group shifting away its focus from the battlefield on to civilian targets. first up, new questions about where donald trump stands in the gop as wisconsin finishes its state republican convention. many wisconsin leaders distancing themselves from donald trump this weekend, focusing on candidates further down the ballot and not mentioning the gop front runner by name. peter is live in philadelphia, where mr. trump will attend his daughter tiffany's college graduation in just about 2 1/2 hours, right, peter? >> reporter: that's right. it's 6:30 this evening at franklin field behind me. mr. trump, away from the graduation, is aggressively going after "the new york times" today for a front page item in today's paper that aggressively goes after him. specifically the way that he has interacted with women over the years. trump does not like the women --
1:02 pm
does not like the quotes that were chose frightn from the wom were interviewed. he said he offered up names of different women who have helped over the years and they didn't use it. he's responding to what he thinks is an old media smear with some new media, taking to twitter, to say, quote, why doesn't the failing ny times write the real story on the clintons and women? the media is totally dishonest. and this morning, the rnc chairman reince priebus says he doesn't think stories about stuff like that really matter when it comes to trump. >> all these stories that come out and they come out every couple weeks, people just don't care. i think people look at donald trump and say -- and hillary clinton and say, who's going to bring an earthquake to washington, d.c.? >> reporter: priebus also says he thinks trump and speaker ryan, who he sat down with earlier this week, are about 80% on the same page and that it would be a suicide mission for conservatives to enlist someone else to run as an independent to
1:03 pm
try and stop trump, but today we heard some conservatives clearly still not happy with their presumptive nominee. >> there are millions of moms and dads out there that are going to say, you know what, am i going to go to the polls to vote for someone who's demeaning to women? i don't think "the new york times" article is a surprise. >> reporter: and trump will be here at upenn in a few hours. coincidental coincidentally, so will the vice president, joe biden, whose granddaughter is walking at a ceremony today. we don't know if the two will cross paths, but we're here just in case. >> peter doocy, thanks so much. >> meanwhile, president obama went after donald trump this afternoon, criticizing the republican front runner's policies during his commencement speech at rutgers university in new jersey. kristen fisher is live in washington with more and what the president said. hi, kristen. >> reporter: hey, eric. president obama started his speech by saying there's not much that i'm afraid to take on in my final year of office.
1:04 pm
so today he went after donald trump and all that he stands for without ever mentioning him by name. one of the first things he hit him on was his campaign slogan, make america great again. president obama said the good old days weren't all that good. >> with you hear someone longing for the good old days, take it with a grain of salt. >> reporter: president obama then made his case to the roughly 12,000 graduates as to why he believes trump's isolationist policies would be bad for america. policies like a ban on muslims entering the u.s. and building a wall along the southern border. >> the world is more interconnected than ever before, and it's becoming more connected every day. building walls won't change that. >> reporter: but president obama saved his most scathing criticism for the very end by directly attacking some of trump's favorite talking points. he said the system is not rigged. more people just need to vote. and he said experience does
1:05 pm
matter. it matters for doctors and pilots, so it should matter for politicians too. >> it's not cool to not know what you're talking about. [ laughter ] that's not keeping it real or telling it like it is. that's not challenging political correctness. that's just not knowing what you're talking about. >> reporter: now, president obama did stick up for another republican, former secretary of state condoleezza rice. you may remember she was invited to speak at rutgers' commencement two years ago, but she backed out due to so many student protests. today the president said those protests were misguided and that it's bad for democracy when we're unwilling to listen to the other side. eric? >> all right, kristen. quite lively on the campaign trail and at the colleges. thank you. >> reporter: yes, it is. >> all right. it is crunch time for the democratic presidential candidates, who are gearing up for a pair of primaries in oregon and kentucky on tuesday. hillary clinton inching closer
1:06 pm
to be the number of delegates needed to win the party's nomination, and recent polls show she's ahead of bernie sanders in both states. senior political correspondent mike emanuel is live in louisville, kentucky, with more. hi, mike. >> reporter: hi, arthelle. what's interesting is there's very limited public polling in kentucky and oregon. both candidates are investing a good deal of time here in kentucky. hillary clinton just wrapped up taking selfies with her supporters at a carpenter's union event in louisville. she made several stops at churches in the city earlier this morning as well. clinton is also trying to drive union support. she took this swipe at her rival bernie sanders. >> there is a big difference in this primary campaign between me and my opponent bernie sanders. i voted to bail out the auto industry, and he voted against it. if you were to evaluate our positions, i think i came out on the better side of that.
1:07 pm
the american auto industry just had the best year in its history last year. >> reporter: as for sanders, he's campaigning this afternoon in paducah. sanders had some momentum after recent wins in west virginia and indiana and is hoping to keep rolling. sanders says he has broad appeal. >> donald trump was defeating hillary clinton by four points. we were defeating trump by five points. secretary clinton does very well with democrats. so do i. but there are a lot of independents in this country. [ cheers and applause ] and we do very well with the independents. >> reporter: clinton's trying to put sanders away, but it's not clear if she'll be able to do so. she has a lot of issues here in coal country after saying she was going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.
1:08 pm
so we'll see. >> okay, mike. thanks. now for an update on that suspicious package that cause the the cancellation of a major british soccer match involving the team manchester united. police calling the suspected bomb not viable but also incredibly life like. the package was discovered shortly before the start of the game, prompting authorities to evacuate thousands of fans there. the bomb squad has now carried out what they call a controlled explosion, safely disposing of the device, whatever it was. greg has the latest from london. >> hi, eric. the terror scare happened just before the last game of the season in the british soccer league involving one of the league's most, maybe the world's most famous soccer team, as you noted, manchester united. those inside the 75,000-seat stadium in central england were told to evacuate when what was called a suspect package was
1:09 pm
found in the stands. while there was no call beforehand from isis or any terror organization, it really seemed like the real thing to officials. one reported source said it looked like a pipe bomb. police, military, emergency, and bomb squad teams were brought in. once everybody was out of the stands, that capacity 75,000, they set off a controlled explosion at the scene. basically attaching a small amount of explosive to see if they could ignite it. it didn't, to the relief of a lot of people, including fans. here is one who was relieved that it wasn't the real thing. take a listen. >> yeah, we came from vancouver, canada, and we -- first time ever to old trafford. that's why we came this way, just to go to the match today. we saw the evacuation happening, and it was kind of a bit unnerving because we didn't know what was happening, you know. we made it out, so better safe than sorry. >> fans from abroad and at home
1:10 pm
very happy. of course, there's been tight security at stadiums here and across europe, especially ever since that terror attack at a paris soccer stadium last november, part of a city-wide terror spree that left 130 people dead. next month france will host the huge european soccer championship under maybe the tightest security ever for any kind of sporting events across the country. also, this game, eric, will be rescheduled, probably also under close scrutiny. looks like the new normal now at sporting events on this side of the atlantic. maybe coming to you too. back to you. >> certainly after what happened in november in paris, authorities taking no chances. greg, thank you so much. >> thank you. families evacuated in the wake of the devastating canadian wildfire now getting a bit of a closer look at their homes because of a government
1:11 pm
smartphone app. people can use it to view satellite imagery of ft. mcmurray, where the flames ignited nearly two weeks ago. the fire forced more than 80,000 people from their homes and destroyed more than 2,000 buildings. firefighters managed to save 85% to 90% of the city. well, the calendar says spring, but on the east coast this sunday, it certainly feels like fall. at the fox extreme weather center, we're keeping an eye on the potential of flooding across parts of texas. senior meteorologist janice dean is observing all that and has the details. >> the big weather story this weekend was the cooler air across at least two-thirds of the country. 10 to 20 degrees below average, stretching as far south as the lower mississippi valley and stretching in towards the northeast and mid-atlantic. the other big story we're watching is the potential for more flooding rainfall for texas. several inches of rain last night. we had flash flooding around the
1:12 pm
houston area, and they have seen their fair share of heavy rain over the last couple weeks. the future radar shows another system moving in. a lot of gulf moisture working its way upwards. we're going to see the potential for more flooding not only for texas but parts of the central plains as a new system pushes in this week. look at texas, especially coastal areas. we could easily get 4 to 6 inches. again, this area has seen their fair share of rainfall. the ground is saturated. they can't take anymore rain. flash flooding is going to be a concern. and we also have the potential for more snow across the colorado rockies. the severe threat today for new mexico and texas, large hail, damaging winds, maybe isolated tornadoes, and a renewed threat as we head into monday for parts of oklahoma and texas, the pan handles here for the hail and damaging winds. houston has seen record rainfall within the last couple weeks. it looks like for the foreseeable future, we have a chance of rain and thunderstorms in our forecast for the next five days. your forecast highs again very
1:13 pm
cold across the great lakes, ohio valley, in towards the northeast as well. we have another system moving into the northwest. we're going to watch those temperatures begin to rebound early next week. still below average, but tuesday, wednesday, and thursday we'll start to see more seasonal temperatures. back to you. >> all right, janice. thanks so much. the flooding really has hit people hard in texas. >> it's unfortunate. well, climate change protesters stopping traffic by camping out on the train tracks. where this happened and how police responded to the roadblock. >> and there was tragedy on a texas highway. what investigators say may have caused that charter bus to go off the road. it killed eight people in this, and injured dozens of others. also, widespread bloodshed in iraq this past week at the hands of isis. why the terror group is changing tactics. think fixing your windshield is a big hassle? not with safelite. this family needed their windshield replaced, but they're daughters heart was set on going to the zoo.
1:14 pm
so we said if you need safelite to come to the zoo we'll come to the zoo! only safelite can fix your windshield anywhere in the us. with our exclusive mobileglassshops. and our one of a kind trueseal technology, for a reliable bond. service that fits your schedule. that's another safelite advantage. ♪ safelite repair, safelite replace. ♪ i built my business with passion. but i keep it growing by making every dollar count. that's why i have the spark cash card from capital one. i earn unlimited 2% cash back on everything i buy for my studio. ♪ and that unlimited 2% cash back from spark means thousands
1:15 pm
of dollars each year going back into my business... that's huge for my bottom line. what's in your wallet?
1:16 pm
1:17 pm
time now for a quick check of the headlines. the ntsb is sending a team to investigate the deadly bus crash in south texas. eight people were killed, 44 others were hurt when that charter bus rolled over on a rain-slicked highway. police outside seattle arresting more than 50 climate change activists. they've been camping out on
1:18 pm
railroad tracks near an oil refinery since friday, protesting fossil fuels and forcing that rail line to shut down. a spokesman says service will resume later today. and the world's largest cruise ship setting sail from france. take a look at that. it's on its maiden voyage across the channel to england. the $1 billion boat, harmony of the sea, has 2,500 state rooms, 20 dining rooms, 23 swimming pools, and can carry more than 6,000 passengers. we now turn overseas to iraq with baghdad reeling from another horrific week of suicide bombings, killing more than 100 people. isis claiming responsibility for the bloodshed. officials saying it is due to a shift in tactics for the terror group, now focusing on guerrilla style warfare that relies more on suicide attacks against civilians, as it's suffering
1:19 pm
defeat on the battlefield. the obama administration's point man in the fight against isis calling it a desperate move. >> this perverse caliphate is shrinking. so they're very much on the defensive. they have not retaken any territory, really, since their operations in ramadi going all the way back to may. they are now doing these suicide attacks against civilian populations. it's not going to work. >> let's talk about it now with retired navy captain bob wells, former national security adviser to vice president dick cheney. always good to see you. >> good to see you. >> i want to start with your take on this. the ramping up of these suicide attacks in baghdad at the hands of isis. is this a sign of isis getting weaker and more desperate? >> i don't think so. i think it's really a shift in strategy. i think the good news is that we've been very effective and the momentum has moved our way with regard to a counter-isis operational strategy. they've lost territory, which is the key to defeat isis in syria,
1:20 pm
especially around palmyra. also, they've lost territory around ramadi to different places within the euphrates and tiger river valleys. it's a good news story for us on the operational side, but this shift in tactic should be taken seriously, just like we learned during the shift from counterterrorism to counterinsurgency concerns during the iraqi freedom period of time. the same thing is going on right now. as they continue to lose territory, they're going to melt back into the city. >> so how, captain wells, do the counterterror forces adjust to protect these soft targets once they move back into the cities? >> that's the most important question because if you look at the capacity of the iraqi security forces to protect their own population, they just don't have it. in fact, they've been -- we've been stalled looking at the effort going up toward mosul. they've also been stalled in taking care of things around ramadi and cleaning things up there. they need to have better
1:21 pm
capacity to deal with protecting their civilians in the city centers. a final point, looking at the actual results of baghdad, as well as the periphery of baghdad, you start seeing this sectarian strife really rear its ugly head again with shiite and sunni, which is isis, in baghdad. so this counterinsurgency ascendence is a change in tactic, but it's very concerning. >> concerning why? >> because the iraqi security forces don't have the capacity, so the united states must look at the total strategy, look at how many trainers we do have inside iraq to support not only the military effort but also protecting civilians, looking at what type of counterinsurgency intelligence and surveillance that we could provide is required. political side needs to be focused on even more. i know secretary of state kerry was just there about two weeks ago with the prime minister looking at the challenges within
1:22 pm
the new government inside iraq. the political track needs a refocus. we need to have additional support of the iraqi ministry of interior to support their protection to other civilian personnel. >> you know, according to most reports, as you well know, you just mentioned isis has a stronghold in mosul as well as raqqah. however, in raqqah, connor powell reported earlier today that isis called for a state of emergency. first of all, how can terrorists call for a state of emergency, and what does that mean? >> well, their nature was to create a state. the islamic state of iraq and syria or isis, islamic state of the lavant. but they've lost more territory now, so it is a state of emergency with regard to their objective. but they still want to challenge authority, challenge power to essentially achieve their islamic goals.
1:23 pm
so it is a state of emergency in raqqah as well as in iraq. it's going to get worse for them as well as the military strategy continues to choke them off. there's been success there, which is going to create more change in tactics as they melt back into the cities. >> so before i let you go, captain wells, are you intimating that there needs to be more ground control or support, i should say, from the u.s. and allies? >> i think looking at our total strategy, we've incrementally gotten to the point where we're having more special operations forces, more u.s. marines and also army in support of the iraqi security forces. as our commander recently said, we're waiting for the iraqi security forces and the political leadership in baghdad to ask for additional capability, but i think, yes, we're going to need to have more u.s. capability to really nip this in the bud. the same thing happened to us
1:24 pm
back in 2005 and 2006 and 2007 in the insurgency. that may be where we're going with regard to an insurgency inside cities. >> but is it important -- we're tight on time, so i want to ask you this. is it important for -- important to wait for the iraqi government to ask for more troops on the ground? if american troops take it upon themselves, that's going to cause problems, right? >> the good news is we have constant communications both on the ground in iraq as well as through our u.s. central command working with the iraqis. i think we're in communication where they see the current situation. there's better surveillance now, so they can actually see. finally, just responding to what's happening right now in baghdad and around the city of baghdad is very concerning. i think there's a sense of urgency now to really get it right. >> okay. captain wells, i'll leave it there. i have some follow-ups, but i have to go. i do thank you for your time and
1:25 pm
your analysis always. thank you. >> thank you, arthelle. >> eric? will donald trump get more critical media coverage now that he's the presumptive nominee? some of those reports don't paint him in the best light. so why does rnc chairman reince priebus say that's not a problem for mr. trump? ...clear for take off. see ya! when you're living with diabetes. steady is exciting. oh this is living baby! only glucerna has carbsteady, to help minimize blood sugar spikes. and try new glucerna hunger smart to help you feel full. hello?!n presents the yardley's. -oh, pizza is here! -oh! yeah, come on in!

amazing is getting this close. real is an animal rescue. amazing is over twenty-seven thousand of them. there is only one place where real and amazing live. seaworld. real. amazing
1:28 pm
they keep telling me "drink more water." "exercise more." i know that. "try laxatives..." i know. believe me. it's like i've. tried. everything! my chronic constipation keeps coming back. i know that. tell me something i don't know. (vo) linzess works differently from laxatives. linzess treats adults with ibs with constipation, or chronic constipation. it can help relieve your belly pain, and lets you have more frequent and complete bowel movements that are easier to pass. do not give linzess to children under 6 and it should not be given to children 6 to 17. it may harm them. don't take linzess if you have a bowel blockage.
1:29 pm
get immediate help if you develop unusual or severe stomach pain, especially with bloody or black stools. the most common side effect is diarrhea, sometimes severe. if it's severe stop taking linzess and call your doctor right away. other side effects include gas, stomach-area pain and swelling. talk to your doctor about managing your symptoms proactively with linzess. well, presumptive republican nominee donald trump had a number of potentially damagie i media reports this week, but will they stick? refusing to release his tax returns are, allegedly his own spokesman. all accusations that would ultimately spell trouble for any presidential candidate. then again, this is donald trump. rnc chairman reince priebus said
1:30 pm
trump should not worry about the stories. he thinks the reports will not haverepercussions. >> whether this issue is going to apply to donald trump in a negative way or not, i'm not sure of, but so far most things have not because he represents something far impdifferent. it's a bigger question, which is who's going to blow up the system. who's going to get the change people want done. >> is he correct? the editor in chief of role call joins us. melinda, we have this list. every day or two days, it's something new. the taxes, the john miller quote/unquote publicist phone calls he supposedly fakes, though he denies. drip, drip, drip, or will it have little effect? >> i think it will be drip, drip, drip, and we'll have to see if it has an effect. mr. priebus is certainly correct
1:31 pm
when he says this sort of thing has not had an effect during the primary season. but the primary is coming to a close. he's the presumptive nominee. he now faces a very different electorate. i think the reports about women, though, i'm not sure how much effect, say, "the new york times" piece, cataloging his problem with women over the years, will have. i was frankly pretty surprised at how little was new in that report. i think there was really only one anecdote i hadn't heard before. we had a story in roll call recently that was based on app study by a republican polling outfit evolving strategies that said that men are impervious to -- they can watch several attack ads on donald trump, and he doesn't slip with those voters at all, but women really are a little more vulnerable to
1:32 pm
changing their mind when they see these kind of ads that point out some of the statements he's made about women over the years. >> you mentioned that "new york times" article. on the front page, huge big, huge headline says crossing the line. they went back to 1964 when he was at new york military academy, talking about bringing girls around. this is what they wrote. what emerges from the interviews is a complex, at times contradictory portrait of a wealthy, well-known, provocative man and that the women around him defy cat gorization. he, of course, calling this a media witch hunt. he says it is a lame piece by "the new york times" and says the real story should be on the clintons and women. does he have a point?
1:33 pm
>> i don't know. one of our columnists is working on a piece for us now. she lives in a suburb outside of atlanta. she says she talks to women every day who have a big problem with donald trump. those are the suburban women he's got to win over. not because of rude things he said or not acting presidential, like when he talked about his big hands. she says the problem these women have that she hears over and over is the fear he might get his big hands on the nuclear codes, that he doesn't seem to have the kind of stability or responsible discipline, character they'd like to see in a president. >> bottom line, finally, when mr. priebus says voters don't care, or donald trump claims voters don't care, they may be talking about the primary voters, but it could potentially be a different story when you're dealing with the undecided, the democrats who would support him or those in the general election? >> i think that's really right. i mean, he has got to win over women and hispanics far more
1:34 pm
than he has to date. you know, with -- the things in "the new york times" story, again, it's not surprising in part, even if you haven't heard these particular stories, because it's very much what you see from trump today, you know, speaking softly and kindly one moment and kind of letting it all loose in a pretty shocking way the next. so i don't think it's going to be any one revelation. i can't imagine what that would be. maybe something in the taxes. we haven't seen anything yet that could have that effect. if he doesn't do better with women and hispanics in particular, he won't win the white house. >> "the new york times" have reported some articles on the clinton foundation. we'll see if they marshal those type of resources in this
1:35 pm
campaign. >> i think the clintons would say "the new york times" has been quite critical throughout the years, you're right. >> all right, melinda. thank you so much. french actress madeline lebeau, best known for her role in "casablanca" has passed away. >> what a fool i was. >> you may remember her as the girlfriend of humphrey bogaerts's rick blaine. according to bbc news, she was the last surviving actress from the 1942 film and one of several real-life refugees from the german occupation of france who acted in the classic. her son-in-law says lebeau died may 1st in spain after suffering a thigh bone fracture. madeline lebeau was 92. >> what a classic film. >> indeed. well, have you heard about what's happening with the arizona sheriff joe arpaio? a judge says he's on of the law. that judge holding mr. arpaio in
1:36 pm
contempt of court. coming up, we'll look at why he's in hot water and what his troubles could mean as our legal panel looks at the case that's actually against sheriff joe.

1:38 pm
it takes a lot of work... but i really love it.s. i'm on the move all day long... and sometimes, i just don't eat the way i should. so i drink boost® to get the nutrition that i'm missing. boost complete nutritional drink has 26 essential vitamins and minerals, including calcium and vitamin d to support strong bones and 10 grams of protein to help maintain muscle. all with a great taste. i don't plan on slowing down any time soon. stay strong. stay active with boost®. and i'm still struggling with my diabetes. i do my best to manage. but it's hard to keep up with it. your body and your diabetes change over time. your treatment plan may too. know your options. once-daily toujeo® is a long-acting insulin from the makers of lantus®. it releases slowly to provide
1:39 pm
consistent insulin levels for a full 24 hours. toujeo® also provides proven full 24-hour blood sugar control and significant a1c reduction. toujeo® is a long-acting, man-made insulin used to control high blood sugar in adults with diabetes. it contains 3 times as much insulin in 1 milliliter as standard insulin. don't use toujeo® to treat diabetic ketoacidosis, during episodes of low blood sugar, or if you're allergic to insulin. allergic reaction may occur and may be life threatening. don't reuse needles or share insulin pens, even if the needle has been changed. the most common side effect is low blood sugar, which can be serious and life threatening. it may cause shaking, sweating, fast heartbeat, and blurred vision. check your blood sugar levels daily while using toujeo®. injection site reactions may occur. don't change your dose or type of insulin without talking to your doctor. tell your doctor if you take other medicines and about all your medical conditions. insulins, including toujeo®, in combination with tzds (thiazolidinediones) may cause serious side effects like heart failure that can lead to death, even if you've never had heart failure before. don't dilute or mix toujeo® with other insulins
1:40 pm
or solutions as it may not work as intended and you may lose blood sugar control, which could be serious. ask your doctor about toujeo®. sheriff joe arpaio now finding himself on the other side of the law. a judge ruling that sheriff arpaio is in civil contempt of court for disobeying orders meant to stop racial profiling. the ruling could bring the sheriff a step closer to a potential criminal contempt case. the potential of that could be fines or jail time. the lawsuit was over controversial policing strategies that sheriff arpaio claimed were meant to crack down on undocumented immigration. could sheriff joe himself end up in the pokey? let's bring in our legal panel. keith sullivan and mercedes cohen. this has to do with the court appointed monitor of his department on this racial
1:41 pm
profiling. the judge found that during those immigration raids that his department runs, over 18 months, violated those orders. now here he is in contempt of court. what do you think is going to happen? >> certainly there's such a ground support for sheriff arpaio. so much has been out there in the media that says there's really crime that's associated with certain members of individuals within arizona. there is a ground swell of support. it's going to be a back and forth. they're going to have to look at what the policies and procedures are that the sheriff is implementing, and certainly he can show a lot of support saying, i've implemented these changes, this is the training i've provided. the fact these individuals were arrested doesn't mean that there's actual racial profiling. these were individuals that my police and the sheriff department reasonably believed were committing crimes. so whether or not he can say to the court and have the facts and support, it's all going to come down to, number one, what were
1:42 pm
those policies, two,plement implemented, and were these individuals committing crimes. >> keith, they say there are 190 of these people that were racially profiled. the county has already shelled out like $41 million in some of the cases and could pay more. >> yes, it's getting expensive. certainly the sheriff is going to find himself on the wrong side of the law. he, amongst everybody, should know the law is always going to win. we know definitively without question that he did violate the court's order at least in one aspect. he never conveyed the court's findings to his human trafficking unit. now, that's the unit that is most likely going to come across individuals they're locking up for illegal immigration. he's conceded he never conveyed the order to them for 2 1/2 years. that's certainly going to be a problem. i agree with mercedes here. he can certainly enforce -- and the judge told him, he can enforce the state and federal laws without question. he's going to come into court and claim he's been doing that pursuant to well-settled supreme
1:43 pm
court decisions, such as terry v. ohio, where you can do a stop, question, and frisk based upon a mere reasonable suspicion. >> so you're saying there is some law potentially on his side? >> absoluly. i think as mercedes laid out, he's going to articulate how he's been implementing and how he's changed this policy and the training his people have undergone. the issue is going to be the judge's directive that you cannot stop or arrest anybody who you are stopping purely for the basis that you believe or suspect or even if you know, if you have definitive, clear, convincing knowledge that they are an illegal immigrant. staying in the country while you're illegal is a federal, civil offense. it's not a criminal offense, and his jurisdiction is limited to state and federal laws and nothing else. >> mercedes, what about that? what about this case that some of the stuff wasn't passed on allegedly and he can claim that defense. there's this penalty hearing on may 31st. >> it is. there's a penalty hearing that's going to come up. contempt of court, i mean, there are severe sanctions that come with it. we talked a little bit that
1:44 pm
maybe he could find himself in criminal contempt. frankly, as long as he has some evidence to prove that he didn't do anything contempt use, that he did provide that information to his department, that he has implemented some training -- >> but how could you prove that if apparently is happening? it's like unproving something. >> well, certainly he's going to say, look, judge, i'm going to have all these witnesses. the issue about these contempt hearings is that you can provide either documentary evidence or testimony that comes in. so if there's going to be some evidence that's going to be confronting sheriff arpaio, well, you may have this information, but you don't have this information. you haven't heard from this particular witness. you haven't seen these documents. you haven't seen these e-mails. so even though he has allegations that he's going to be confronted with, he will have the opportunity during the contempt hearing to show that, in fact, he was in compliance. >> keith, finally, he's well known across the country. probably one of the most well-known sheriffs ever
1:45 pm
practically. he's got the prisoners in these tents. he gives them bologna sandwiches, pink underwear. we know about the pink underwear. it doesn't reach the legal status, but does some of this enter into this case just because of his reputation? >> absolutely, there's no question about it. the judge's decision last week where they decided they were going to hold this contempt hearing is 162 pages. just to put that in context, roe v. wade is a 60-page decision. miranda v. arizona is less than 80 pages. this is personal. it's personal on both sides. the judge did an inquiry regarding facebook posts that the sheriff may have posted about the judge's wife. the judge did private and personal investigations about the judge and his family. so it's become very personal. both sides have dug in. he certainly has some defenses. i don't think the sheriff is going to end up in the pokey wearing the pink underwear. i think he can justify his conduct. >> orange is the new pink, keith. is that what it is? >> that's what it is. >> i don't want to even imagine sheriff joe in his pink
1:46 pm
underwear in his own tent city. >> some say he should be the new homeland secretary. we'll see. >> we'll see how this plays out. he has a court date, and he's 84 years old, by the way. guess what, he's running for re-election. mercedes and keith, thank you so much. >> thank you. >> thanks, eric. >> that was entertaining there at the end with the pink underwear. i know you have some. anyway, coming back. >> no, no, no, no. i'm not going to let you get away with that. he gives -- go interview him. he gives you pink underwear as a sample as a reporter. that's my point. >> so you don't want to show them? >> no. >> the unemployment rate is down since the recession. when we come back, some analysts are saying it's low-wage jobs making a come back. so is this a case of quantity over quality? a closer look next. think fixing your windshield is a big hassle? not with safelite. this family needed their windshield replaced but they're daughters heart was set on going to the zoo. so guess what, i met them at the zoo. service that fits your schedule. that's another safelite advantage. ♪ safelite repair, safelite replace. ♪

>> and at stanford, and what are they doing, hiring kids from other universities? >> what ait bout that? they offering month benefits, obviously, to attract the kids with skills. some universities are stepping up. for example, if you take an engineering degree at george washington university you will be spending some of your team out in the fieldworking at companies as part of the classes you are taking. there is a growth in a lot of the -- right here in philadelphia, for example, drexel is going through a large expansion, you go to college for five years but work in the field that is the trend. it is the universities that are not only teaching the skills but getting them and working the

jobs. they graduate with skills employers can use. >> that is a good program. now, if you are over 45, say, and you need a better job now what did you do? you are not fresh out of college? >> you are not. the world is definitely changing. you cannot just take a job with unskilled workforce. so many retailers go to self service kiosks and at wendy's announce they who is 6,000 self serve kiosks. c.v.s., rite-aid, if you are older, do not thing you can go and get an hourly job to make ends meet. you have to have skills. >> are there skills or programs to improve the skills? >> try community college in your areas with affordable programs that get you engineering and technical skills and vocational skill are looking for older people that can be skilled.
