for all of us to reflect and reaffirm our most basic beliefs that everybody counts and everybody has dignity, now is the time. it's a good time for all of us to reflect on how we treat each other. and to insist on respect and equality for every human being. we have to end discrimination and violence against our brothers and sister who is are in the lgbt community. here at home and around the world. especially in countries where they are routinely prosecuted. we have to challenge the oppression of women, wherever it occurs, here, or overseas. there's only us. americans.
here in orlando the men and women taken from us, those who loved them, we see some of the true character of this country. the best of humanity coming roaring back. the love and the compassion and the fierce resolve that will carry us through, not just through this atrocity, but through whatever difficult times may confront us. it's our pluralism and our respect for each other, including a young man who said to a friend he was super proud to be latino. our love of country, the patriotism of an army reservist who was known as an amazing officer. it's our unity. the outpouring of love that so many across our country have shown to our fellow americans who are lgbt. a display of solidarity that might have been unimaginable even a few years ago. out of this darkest of moments,
that gives us hope. seeing people reflect, seeing people's best instincts come out. maybe in some cases minds and hearts changed. it is our strength and our resilien resilience, the same determination of a man who died here, who traveled the world, mindful of the risks as a gay man, but who spoke for all of us when he said we cannot be afraid, we are not going to be afraid. may we all find that same strength in our own lives. may we all find that same wisdom in how we treat one another. may god bless all who we lost here in orlando, may he comfort their families.
may he heal the wounded. may he bring some solace to those whose hearts have been broken. may he give us resolve to do what's necessary to reduce the hatred of this world. to curb the violence, may he watch over this country that we call home. thank you very much, everybody. hello, i'm dana perino and this is "the five." this was president obama speaking alongside vice president biden after meeting with families of victims and survivors of sunday's terror attack. he offered being consoling words and we heard him get a little bit political, taking veiled shots at republicans over the massacre, for those of you just joining us, that didn't get a chance to see the president's
remarks. i'll read you this from those remarks, then we'll go to greg for his reaction. he said that given the last two terrorist attacks were homegrown, we're going to have to do more to prevent these events. today once again too many times before i held grieving family members, they asked why does this keep happening? they pleaded we do more to stop the carnage. they don't care about politics and neither do i. and i believe that he believes that, greg. but what you heard i think was a little bit more political than you expected. >> i thought it was insulting. i really did. it's pathological to deny the terror and instead focus on the instrument of terror. and it allows you to connect it to a greater context of other crime. rather than focusing on a laser on islamism. if he needs to see it through the prism of guns, and that gets him to the table to fight terror, fine. but do not denigrate people who believe and know that the number one threat is islamism. he said it's not common sense to
consider defending yourself in an area like a club. only 1% of the mass shootings that take place happen where you could defend yourself. the rest of them are in gun-free zones, that's common sense, mr. president, it took three hours, we're not standoff, for that standoff to end in orlando. it took three hours, the reason was it took three hours to get the second gun there. if that time gets shrunk, how do you shrink it? by having people defend themselves. i'm willing to compromise, destroy isis and prevent terrorists from getting guns. but his unbending mind, his unwillingness to see, to see what the threat is, and to spread it thin and to focus it politically and then -- he's basically questioning our morality. he's questioning our morality. that if we're not on his side we're insulting these victims, that's disgusting. i expect more from him. i defended him. i -- it bugs me.
>> one of things he said, he said that omar mateen was a single deranged person. as if he was not connected to terrorist, terrorism. he also said, this is charles from the "national review" tweeted that. if you don't basically, it was along the lines of if you don't think that the guns need to be banned, you need talk to some of the family members. charles cook writing it was beneath contempt and emotional blackmail. not an argument. >> we talked about this a little bit. we didn't see the text of the speech yet. >> you called it. >> basically i asked, you represent all of us. you represent those on the right and those on the left. we know where you are politically. can you take a half hour or 20-minute speech and give condolences to the family members and the first responders and leave the politics out. he didn't do much of that. he did the condolences with the family members, then he got very political. there was a lot of politics in it. greg points out the two lines together that he said that i'm
sitting in the green room listening, my head was exploding. he said although the motives may have been different in this act, the instruments are the same. that's code for -- this wasn't terror this wasn't a terror plot, this wasn't like the others, it's all about the guns. the problem is, mr. president, the motives were the same. this guy, mateen had the same motive as the tsarnaev brothers, as farouk, it was all radical jihad, it wasn't a mass murder. sure lanza up in connecticut, it was a mass murder and in colorado, it was a mass murder. i get that, there are those. but there are also terrorist events this was a terrorist event, president obama ended with a heartfelt outreach to the gay community. i think that was fine except for the fact that the progressive left is the single biggest threat to the lgbt community because -- of this and we all know, we all know that under
sharia law, there is no room to be gay. it's just -- if you're gay, you have to become not gay or die. >> juan this is a president who is, he's had to do a lot more of this than he wanted. there's the homegrown terror attacks and sandy hook and others, not to mention what's going on even in chicago. he says that tomorrow he's glad that the senate is going to take up the gun issue. that might be fine. but what about the isis issue? i mean where, are we, do you expect to see any changes on that front? >> i would hope that the congress would finally, find the heart to say that we need to go to war with isis. but they refuse to vote ever on an authorization for use of military force. they back away from it every time. and -- >> wayth to comment on that when you're finished. >> i think it is common sense,
greg, that someone who has lived through newtown, columbine, charleston, would say oh, so if we give terrorists easy access to guns, people with either unstable minds or minds that have been infected by the terrorist disease, and say, oh, you can have easy access to guns, that that is on us as american people. >> that's a conversation for another time. >> no, that's not. that is not true. if this -- >> attaching it to everything else. it dilutes our will. >> tell that to donald trump. because donald trump is say the same thing to the nra that it's time to do something about easy access to guns for terrorists. >> i'm against easy access to guns to terrorists. >> good. >> that's not what this is about. it's about diversion and deflection. >> if this guy was as you describe him, somehow linked to al qaeda, beyond the social media -- then. >> he wasn't on the terrorist watch list. >> he had been investigated by the fbi for terrorist connections. >> when he bought those guns,
wasn't on any terrorist watch list. >> correct, if the fbi had the ability to say -- >> what would passing the law you recommend, it wouldn't have helped orlando. >> it would have helped because what you would have had was the fbi had the ability even if he wasn't on the watch list to say this is someone we're probing. >> well you're talking about something different now. >> now you're saying someone who has ever been on a watch list. >> this is someone they were looking at. i think what everyone including the senate needs to do is -- >> he walked into a gun shop. he was not on the watch list and purchased a gun. >> i'm saying right now, we've heard conversations, we're talking about this yesterday. that if someone who has been investigated attempts to buy the gun that the authorities can be alerted, what you're going to see in the u.s. senate, thank goodness for the democrats' filibuster is one discussion about people like this getting guns. secondly, an opportunity to expand background checks, that's good stuff. >> this still isn't dealing with the root of the problem.
because we have a president who is unwilling and dangerously reckless with our national security because he's afraid of words and he won't identify the problem. instead he wants to divert and talk about gun control. as we pointed out, there wouldn't have been anything that would have prevented him from getting these weapons or obtaining them through legal means. what we know is this was somebody who was plotting and planning this for a very long time. he cased multiple locations, he looked for the most target-rich, soft environment and that's what he chose. nothing like deranged crazy person, evil? yes, isis-inspired? yes, islamic terrorist? yes. >> and if he wants to talk about the other aspects of gun violence or the other incidents, the aurora guy shot for a specific theater a that was gun-free. there was a closer one that didn't have that rule. maybe he should admit that as well. >> i'm going to take a moment to talk about this thing if i can
see the point of president obama that him saying the magic words of radical islam is not going to immediately change the war on terror then the left has to concede the point that if the congress were to pass a specific war authorization against isis isn't going to change a thing. thoughs are magic words, the policies aren't going to change and the left and the white house has not said that there would be something they would want to do to go after isis that they are prevented from doing right now the current map that exists at this moment. >> this happened because the president wanted strikes against the syrian government and guess what the congress wouldn't go along. and guess what, when it comes down do matter of political will, dana as to whether or not you are saying we should put additional troops, put additional monies into fighting isis at this point. the congress says we don't want our fingerprints on it, war is not popular. the political will is -- >> we don't have enough time to go through all that. we got to go. two days ago, president obama said isis is weaker than it has been in years. but today a much different tone from the c.i.a. director, his
because when they ship with us, their business becomes our business. that's why we make more e-commerce deliveries to homes than anyone else in the country. here, there, everywhere. united states postal service priority: you 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®. i'm in vests and as a vested investor in vests, i invest with e*trade, where investors can investigate and invest in vests...
is one day after republicans, not islamist terrorists for the massacre in orlando, "new york times" editorial board put out another outrageous piece, accusing the nra of being complicit in terrorism. and the "boston globe" is got a front-page ad shows an ar-15 rifle full size, and the words, "make it stop." first, hournd stern made a powerful case on his radio show yesterday for why americans shouldn't be disarmed.
listen. >> i can't believe these people come on after and their answer to orlando is to take away guns from the public. the military, they don't mean it as derogatory statement. they look at the public as sheep. think about it, we are sheep. most of us sit around all day, we don't know how to defend ourselves. we are in a flock. and we basically think everything's okay. except the wolves, the bad guise guys, whether they're isis, terrorists, the most gun-free zone on the planet. it happened during 9/11 what did the wolves do? they said this is great, we'll kill the sheep with box-cutters, the wolves are always plotting. they'll use box-cutters, they'll use an airplane and fly it into a building. they don't need ar-15s. >> he points out the wolves are killing the sheep. who are disarming the sheep? the left. >> the liberals and the president wants to and the
prospective liberal president, hillary clinton wants to. so that's not making us more safe, that's being in denial and spiraling and in political ideology, putting the forefront and agenda against the second amendment. that's reckless, that's unamerican. it's not helpful. like greg said, you've said, if they were armed within that nightclub number one he wouldn't have chosen it. number two that wouldn't have gone on for four hours with 49 american lives that counted on their government to keep them safe dead now. >> refreshing to hear someone like howard stern step up. >> it tells you he's kind of a bramt i when it reaches him and he's saying this, you know that the angels are on that side. if terrorism attack succeeds in reducing the amount of guns that people have to protect themselves, then the terrorists have in a sense won because they've taken a terrorist act, not only created fear but
reduced our ability to defend ourselves. i want to point out -- they always talk about how many gun there is are in america. over the last three decades, homicides have dropped dramatically, as gun ownership rises, we're seeing a drop in homicides. there's one thing that's going up, that's terrorist attacks. the drop in homicides kind of tells us that law-abiding american citizens can handle guns, we're not morons. we have a threat here and that if we can't rely on law enforcement to get there in time if it takes three hours for them to get there, somebody, somebody's got to protect us and it has to be ourselves. we have the moral obligation, it's common sense to defend ourselves. >> 20 years, 1993 to 2013, 185 million firearms in '93, up to 350 million in 2013, an 89% increase in firearms. the violent crime rate and the violent crimes have gone down, the rate from 747 per 100,000, down to 368, a 50% drop in
violent crimes, murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault. so you're spot on. >> dana, do you want howard stern's comment? >> if i could make one comment on that. i could do both. i like the analogy that howard stern used in terms of being sheep it made me think about something that greg said the other day while we were watching this unfold. which is that people don't know how to protect themselves in this kind of a situation. when we were growing up we did the drills for -- nuclear war, earthquakes. tornadoes. in this situation, when i'm in a crowd, i think i would freeze as well. we saw the marine in kimberly's one more thing, trying to explain to people, you have to move. he risk his life to open the door for them. i'm definitely a sheep and i'm willing to let other people defend mere. do i have a responsibility to defend myself and others? that's on my mind. beyond that, which is the fbi
and our local police forces i think are vastly underresourced. there's a piece in politico magazine that talks about the fbi. they don't have enough people in order to keep track of all of these, james comey says there are 50 open investigations plural in all 50 states of homegrown terrorists, that will probably feed off of this type of copycat type of attack. it is terrorism, i think the sheep analogy was pretty good. >> "boston globe," what was the big thing that happened a couple of years ago, the boston marathon attack. the tsarnaev brothers dedicated to jihad, right? this is the day or a couple of days after orlando. a guy who claims to be, his allegiance with isis. why is the "boston globe" putting an ar-15 on their cover? >> because it's an abomination that we allow -- that we in this country allow this to go forward. let me speak for the sheep, let me tell what the sheep think,
okay? this is unbelievable, but what you have is 57% of the sheep, the american people say, we should have an assault weapons ban which was allowed to lapse in 2004 by the republicans. by the republican congress and guess what, 90% of the sheep say? oh, we should have strict background checks in the country. including sheep who are gun owners. guess what, we're -- >> an assault weapon! >> this is about terror. >> no, this is about the nakt we do nothing to deal with the contagion of guns in this society. and let me tell you one more thing, you look at the death rates by guns in other developed western nations, the united states is way, way -- >> because those stats are wrong. >> they're not wrong. let me tell you what's wrong, it's the mindset that says anybody who says this is wrong is somehow crazy. in fact this is a debate that's being distorted by the nra, who puts money in the pockets of our politicians. so they don't listen to the
sheep. instead they listen to the gun makers. >> an assault weapon wasn't used, you do realize that. and an ar-15 wasn't used. you're talking about something completely different! >> let me just say something, you know there was a guy in the nightclub with a gun, did it stop him? kimberly? no. this kind of weapon, is the kind of weapon that has no business in america. >> this weapon is banned in some states because it doesn't have high-enough caliber bullet. feel it's not strong enough. it's inhumane to the animals that you use to shoot it. it's not an assault weapon. stop it. >> why would you use that to hunt animals? >> it's a rifle in a costume, juan. it's a rifle in a costume. >> it's a military weapon. >> i would say, i think that i, i don't know how many other people in america are like me. i might be persuadable on some of these issues if the left could show me that there is evidence that what they're talking about could actually work. but every time i look into this issue, i'm like the facts and
the logic don't add up and the assault weapons ban that lasted for ten years, the government study said it didn't have an effect. i don't understand, i understand the emotional want and desire to get rid of them. if it doesn't actually bear out in facts -- and logic, how can i be persuaded? >> the facts is that if you live in other countries where they don't allow this plethora of guns everywhere, the homicides rates are far lower. >> would everyone introduce a ban on guns in countries if the homicide rate goes up. >> that's not true, look at australia and france. >> i have, i have. >> and if the ban was in place it wouldn't have prevented it. >> we're going to look at these things in the break. comments from the director of the c.i.a. today and the status of isis that's sharply contradicts what the president has been telling us about the terror network in a minute.
c.i.a. director john brennan says isis is gaining strength. i wonder if he thinks that isil is training and attempting to deploy operatives for further attacks. >> we judge that isil is training and attempting to deploy operatives for further attacks. isil has a large group of western fighters who could serve as operatives for attacks in the westth and the group is probably exploring a variety of means for infiltrating operatives into the west including in refugee flows, smuggling routes and legitimate methods of travel. >> wonderful. this after president obama just played down the threat, i bet he said their ranks are shrinking. >> isil's ranks are shrinking as well. their morale is sinking. the flow of foreign fighters, including from america to syria
and iraq has plummeted. in fact our intelligence community now assists that the ranks of isil fighters has been reduced to the lowest levels in more than two and a half years. >> so what if they're both right. the flow of fighters to syria and iraq has dropped, because they're coming here to the west. our response speed up refugee admissions in a time of war. but that's not our only problem. our problem is we can't settle on a problem. and the old days if there were a threat to america, we would galvanize and pulverize, now every threat is countered with a litany of attention-seeking competing political factions. isis wants us dead. but really it's gun control. it's islamophobia. it's climate change, it's childhood obesity. it's feelings, nothing more than feelings. it's as if you're trying to do surgery and some clown keeps throwing balls at you. imagine after pearl harbor we prattled on about aviation control, swing dancing and zoot
suits. we fight among ourselves that causes us to fight islamism incrementally. the president is taking his time, isn't he. it's our time, too. the good news is we've got the greatest military there ever is, there ever was, we need to find the will and a leader. we bet her find both soon before evil finds us. so eric do you think that they could both be right? that we're killing them there, but they're coming here? >> my biggest concern this morning when i listened to brennan talk there's a complete disconnect between the c.i.a. chief and the white house, there's also a complete disconnect between the fbi chief and the white house. it's like intel is telling everyone don't listen to what he's saying because it's pretty bad out there. to say that there's a large cadre of western fighters waiting to and ready to come over here or are here and may be looking for ways to infiltrate and may use the refugee program
while president obama says we should be expanding our refugee program tells me there's a complete disconnect. think we need to listen to the c.i.a., the fbi and listen to the common sense of what's going on around you and say maybe it's time we don't have a president who can't say islamic terror, who discounts the islamic threat to the american people. not calling it homegrown like he did today. and maybe have someone who wants to be the next commander-in-chief who she agrees with him. >> the thing is kimberly, he said you know, there's no longer people coming over there. as if that is good news, i thought it was the great news if the extremists would go there there and leave our country. >> right, exactly. he doesn't get it. he doesn't understand what he's hearing in these reports and the intelligence community or he has a complete disregard. when you have the director of the c.i.a. give a statement an analysis, assessment like that that contradicts the remarks of the commander-in-chief, you know you got a problem. and our problem is isis.
unless we're going to hit them hard enough, you can say we've had some small gains, but really with 49 dead americans here, they still hold power, they still hold influence and people are still attracted to them. you have to destroy them so they don't exist so they're no longer the cool jihad on the block and people aren't being inspired by them. then you'll see a difference. >> this should not be an election year issue. it should be an american issue. >> i was thinking about that it's not just an american issue, it's we call, the president bush called it a global war on terror for a reason. it was just yesterday that authorities in europe said that they know that there are hard-core cells that are planning to move into operations as we speak in france and belgium. two places that we know just this past year, have had major terrorist attacks. so i also thought that president has, i don't know whether it's bad luck or just a bad strategy, but it seems like every time he says something about isis. the next day it proves them
wrong. jv, beheadings, he said they were contained, they're not. the ranks reduced, the c.i.a. director comes out. after san bernardino he said he actually apologized to the american people. he said my tone was wrong. i feel like the communications could be a lot better. >> all about unifying. i really feel that way, juan, that's our problem. is that the best strategies is to get america behind and fight terror, we can't do it. >> to me it's like i want a blanket in this fear-filled atmosphere, i'm scared, i'm scared right now. >> you should be, juan, i'm ready. >> you're getting me scared. >> it's called being informed and looking at the facts. listening to the c.i.a. director i heard him say we're making progress on the battlefield. we have contained them, pushed them back. i heard him say we have cut off their financial revenue streams. i heard him say they are on the defensive right now. i heard him say they're not even telling people to come over there, because guess what,
they're not functional. so to me, what he's say something, it's hard to deal with the social media interface, it's hard to deal with the spread of ideology. he talked about the spread of this kind of terrorist in africa, in libya, right, in nigeria. and in fact how you have them trying new ways, including, to the point, to infiltrate the refugee flows, it doesn't say we can't screen refugees, ericth. it doesn't mean we have to stop being america. >> potentially serve as operatives for attacks in the west. >> yes, but that doesn't mean that we don't flow, we incapable of screening refugees. millions of refugees have been accepted in germany. look to our north in canada, thousands more. >> they busted terrorist trying to infiltrate. >> the problem they're using the blood of the innocent to push a political agenda is shameful and that's what you're seeing. >> up ahead, oprah winfrey says it's time for a woman president, that's why she's backing
hillary. so why didn't she endorse her back in 2007? why did she situate waite until after clinton clinched the nomination. when they thought they should westart saving for retirement.le then we asked some older people when they actually did start saving. this gap between when we should start saving and when we actually do is one of the reasons why too many of us aren't prepared for retirement. just start as early as you can. it's going to pay off in the future. if we all start saving a little more today, we'll all be better prepared tomorrow. prudential. bring your challenges.

free world. >> so you heard win friday say it's about time we had a female president, is her gender a good enough reason to put hillary in the white house? dana? >> well, i would, it's if i were going to be the first woman president, i would rather have people say she was the better choice between the two options. if you think back to what oprah winfrey did in 2008, she had not gotten involved in primary politics preev s prior to that believe. it was a big controversy and a huge disappointment for hillary clinton back then. i wouldn't underestimate the power of some people voting for the first woman president, but i also wouldn't overestimate it, either. >> what a hypocrite. she said it's about time. well eight years ago you could have endorsed her. >> she chose obama. >> she's telling america -- we're being lectured that we aren't as progressive and as thoughtful as everybody else is. by the way, a gender sell today
is not enough. we don't have the luxury to go by the xy whatever. we have, we have, i'd like a tarot card, don't play the gender card. do you have the resolve and will and intelligence to fight evil? >> terror card? >> terror card, not tarot card. >> it's about time. about this moment in time. it was too early then now it's the perfect time. you know she's going to endorse the democrat. she waited until the democrat came whoever it was. if she would have done if if it was bernie sanders, i guess if hillary clinton is playing the gender card, has a lot of the similar policy as president obama. but then the one day when she said don't worry about the economy, everybody, i got bill over here to take care of that. got the guy to take care of it. does that take any of the, i don't know, the luster off of -- >> that was a silly thing to
say. i don't think she meant it that way, but that's how it came across, it was bad. >> when she speaks, it works out. >> i think there are two things to say here, one she's a democrat, which is what you were saying, but i think the hypocrisy issue is the interesting one at the table. didn't you just say that? sn. >> i agree with you. does that upset you? >> but i must say that what strikes me is that you know, you talk about trump as the alternative to her. and then you look at the numbers and it says 63% of women say they would never vote for trump. and guess what, 62% say they don't like trump calling women pigs and slobs and bimbos. so maybe oprah winfrey, who is so popular with american women of all stripes say hey i like this woman at this time given it's not even 100 years since women got the right to vote and given we've never had a woman president. for the hypocrisy point i'm coming to.
it sounds like oh, she picked a black guy when it was convenient, not the woman. but i think that again historically, never been a black person, never been a woman and she's done it this way. if you want to call that hypocrisy. >> she betrayed women, juan. >> is that what it is? >> today's a big anniversary for donald trump. he jumped into the presidential race a year ago and he's proven a lot of his critics wrong. will he continue through november 8th? [phone buzzing] some things are simply impossible to ignore. the strikingly designed lexus nx turbo and hybrid. the suv that dares to go beyond utility. this is the pursuit of perfection. you owned your car for four years, you named it brad. you loved brad. and then you totaled him. you two had been through everything together. two boyfriends, three jobs... you're like nothing can replace brad.

on this day one year ago, donald trump rocked the political world, the billionaire businessman rode down that escalator at trump tower and announced he was running for president. trump said all along he would cinch the republican nomination. although many on the left and right doubted him, he proved us all wrong. he's now the presumptive gop nominee and vuning close in polls against hillary clinton. so will trump go all the way after all? eric this has been your horse. so what do you think? a year ago -- >> a year ago today he came, he came down the escalator with melania and did the whole speech and he started out for the first, i don't know, first few
polls at 1% and then ended up locking down the nomination. it's been a long year. i think he's going to win, i do. i think hillary is such a flawed candidate that he will win. >> kg? >> i don't disagree. he should win. hillary is that bad. and especially given what's going on with the economy, with the lack of jobs. those abysmal numbers are something that would benefit someone that comes from the business sector that has experience with the economy. coupled with the problems in national security and intelligence that we have right now. with isis. in my opinion on the rise. and according to brennan, you know the head of the c.i.a. also saying that they're getting more creative, on multiple fronts, access, good travel routes. to come to this country i don't even need to go by his word, do i, i saw what just happened here in this country. so i mean did anyone think a week ago, two weeks ago we'd be talking about 49 dead by someone who pledged allegiance to isis on u.s. soil?
no. >> let me ask you about polls, dana. in fact in the recent polls what we see is hillary clinton doing better and better and donald trump is not doing as well. the six-week period or so last six weeks, people are saying we thought the party was going to come together behind trump. but we haven't seen it. >> the last year has felt like a dog's year. seven years in one. >> it's always about dogs. >> good point. a lot of concern, at the beginning is you can win a republican primary, it's so hard for a republican to win a general election, even with hillary clinton having to fend off bernie sanders up until just like a week ago. but then you see today, the president's champing at bit to campaign for her. everybody is getting in line, the afl-cio comes on board and it comes down to seven states and those seven states who don't have great polling in those states, we'll see. i think unfortunately, kimberly that we probably will be talking about another terrorist attack. before november. so i don't know how much that
factors in to it. there's only 20 weeks to go. >> greg, in the immediate response to what happened in orlando, i look at the polls again, it says half the u.s. disapproves of trump's response. midwestern states, a lot of the battlegrounds, clinton is up. as dana just said that's key to trump's hope to win the general election. >> you know, in an era where national security matters, there should be a walk in the park for the republican party. it's not. >> why? >> because trump has issues, he doesn't do any deep dives on the things he talks about. he has some very, he has some very big ideas. but he doesn't get specific. he is been able to destroy the news cycle by accelerating it so no one can keep up with the things that he's saying, that's amazing. his selling point, number one selling point among the people i know that are voting for him is he's not as bad as hillary. he's not as bad as hillary. i would like a candidate to be better than that. but apparently that's not what that is. >> one more thing is up next.
film. if you like zombie films, that's produced stars and largely funded by vets. marcus latrell is in this. in this movie, two medal of honor recipients, i don't know if william shatner is one of them. 20 bronze stars, three silver stars, 30 purple hearts are in this movie. i think it's if you like zombies, you love our military. go see it it's called "range 15." playing in 500 theaters around the country. it opened yesterday. zombies, military, crowd funded. >> perfect. i would watch that, eric? >> check out this guy. amazing young man, jack aiello, eighth grade graduation from arlington heights. >> congratulations you getting your speech from the magnificent donald trump. let me just tell you, quite frankly -- thank you for allowing me to speak to you
tonight. let me start with the lunches, they're delicious! i too have saw improvement. we need to make them free! >> i see he did hillary, he did, he did four or five impressions. fallon, colbert. get this guy on. >> i have a sweet little one. 5-year-old danielle coning went to her final adoption hearing last week to officially join her new family and guess who was there to join? watch. >> i brought some special guests with me. for this adoption. would you like to come? ♪ ♪ >> the lucky little girl from grand rapids, michigan had been living with her foster family, sarah and jim coning since 2014. to make the day as special as possible. her foster care worker came up with the idea for everybody to dress up like disney characters,
