4:00 pm
cia director, mike pompeo, on fox news sunday. have a good one. ♪ >> breaking tonight, president trump's new words for north korea. >> hopefully it'll all work out. okay, nobody loves a peaceful solution better than president trump. that i can tell you. hopefully it'll all work out. this has been going on for many years. would have been a lot easier to solve this years ago before they were in the position that they're in. but we will see what happens. we think that a lot of good things can happen and we could also have a bad solution. but we think lots of good things can happen. >> when you say bad solutions is the u.s. going to war? >> president trump: i think you know the answer to. that if anything happens to game there will be big -- guam there's big, big trouble.
4:01 pm
>> north korean state police said the u.s. is no more than a lump that we can beat to a jelly any time. >> president trump: let me hear others say it. because when you say that, i don't know what you are referring. to and who is making the statement. let me hear kim jong un say it. he's not saying it. he hasn't been saying much for three days. we are considering additional sanctions at a very, very high level. probably you could say as strong as they get. >> that's the story tonight. i'm dana in important march that maccallum. the press conference wrapping up a short time ago, the president franked by nikki haley, national security advisor and rex tillerson. the u.s. will respond if threatened. president trump announcing he will speak by phone with chinese president gi tonight. a key ally needed to stop the rogue nation from taking their
4:02 pm
ambitions any further. secretary of defense james mattis is trying to calm fears in guam which finds itself in the center of an international nuclear showdown. 14 minutes, that's how long it takes a miss toil strike the u.s. territory. officials in guam are handle out a pamphlet advising how to prepare for a strike. from the on mouse warnings, take shelter as soon as you can. if you're caught outside, lie flat on the ground and cover your head. and do not look at the flash or fireball, it can blind you. not the only place feeling the pressure. millions on the korean peninsula are worried about the days to come of the here is jonathan chang, the wall street bureau chief from south korea of the jonathan, thank you for being here. what is the view from over there in seoul tonight? >> well, i think people here in seoul are, they're accustomed to
4:03 pm
a certain element of rhetoric on the korean peninsula here. this is definitely more than we're used to. it certainly is a cause for concern. >> i read somewhere that somebody said that they called their mother-in-law, who is in seoul, and she said, well we don't really think anything is going to happen. i understand that that has been the feel for many years, possibly a couple of decades. does it feel different now? and does the fact that china weighed in today saying it would actually remain neutral change anybody's feeling in the region? well, i think having china say that, probably comes as some relief. i think the last thing we want to see is a repeat of the u.s. and china fighting over the korean peninsula. that's not to say they're going to stay out, necessarily. depends what happens. yes, to answer your question, i think that people definitely are concerned to a new level here. that's because we have a lot of uncertainty coming from both sides here. typically, north korea, this is what they do. they bluster and they talk a big
4:04 pm
game. typically what we see from the white house can be quite predictable. usually steady, reassuring, all of those things. and the president right now, you know, for all of the things can you say about him, he's not necessarily looking to calm things down. he has language that people haven't heard from the white house in a long time when referring to north korea. >> a new president in south korea just elected in may. how has that changed things in seoul? >> well, i think he's really been caught between a rock and a hard place in a certain sense. his platform from the beginning has been we need to talk to north korea. he's reached out to kim jong un. he said let's meet anywhere any time. have shdz nots korea come to the olympics, south korea is hosting in a few month's time. none of those outreaches have been met with any response at all. not even a, no it's simply nothing. what we have got is we have had two icbm tests in the last month and we have had the death of
4:05 pm
otto warmbier. none of this looks good. for him he's stuck in a bad place here. >> just to confirm there was supposed to be joint military exercises between the south koreans and the united states this weekend. are those still on track? >> yeah, those are on track. the dates haven't been announced. what we expect is in about a week's time. before then we have north korea saying they're drawing up mans to strike, send foreign missiles to the water around guam, mid-august deadline they put on that to have the plan ready. all it needs is kim jong un's say-so. we have a lot of potential red lines and only fouls dates on the calendar ahead. >> jonathan chang no, doubt a busy weekend for you. thanks for being here. >> of course. >> here with more, lt. colonel tony sheaffer, cia trained intel operative.
4:06 pm
brad thor, part. home defense red cell and laura. colonel, let me start with you. how significant was it for you when you heard that china said it would remain neutral if there was going to be a conflict between north korea and the united states? >> it's significant. obviously where we're at partly, because they created a situation, they have enabled north korea to become what it is. in 1953, they sided with the north koreans and actually pushed them, we fought against the chinese. i think it's significant. it's not something, to say it's not important. it's very important. with that said i don't think it's going far enough. this white house has been trying to reinforce the message which i think is important to understand, that the chinese, as much as the south koreans, would suffer badly, gravely, from any military conflict. it's in their interest to not only take a side but to help.
4:07 pm
simply put, to have other enemies should this start firing up, vietnamese, philippines, india are all enemies, challengers if you will, of the chinese. it could be secondary effects that china hasn't calculated. i think it's in their interest to try to help us to deescalate this as much as possible. >> thought it was significant. brad, i wanted to ask you about your time in the red cell unit. you worked on a very particular scenario such as what would happen if the north koreans were going to attack the united states. i imagine since that work wasn't too long ago the government is utilizing those plans to think ahead and sort of craft its strategy at the moment. >> we didn't work on this specific issue of miniatureizing nukes and putting them on icmbs and getting them here. tony knows this, there are binders after binders after binders that exist on shelves at the pentagon, what if this happens, open it up, it's been war gamed and everything. what we need to realize is that
4:08 pm
this is the fault, we are where we are now because of kicking the can down the road. jimmy carter kicked the can, carter shifed president clinton in his going around clinton and doing things he shouldn't have been with the north koreans. h.w. bush, w. bush and barack obama all kicked it. you can't kick it any more. people need to get behind the president and give him a lot of support in dealing with this. he's been left with very few option. >> i don't disagree at all. laura, i would add not as if previous administrations weren't trying? things. and none of those things. north korea's attitude hasn't changed. the president said they're thinking about tougher sanctions, very high level. what do you think that means, and what sort of squeeze could be put on the chinese, or the north koreans. talking about that would affect a behavior change? >> i think it's really important that we look at additional sanctions options here. especially in terms of secondary sanctions on the chinese.
4:09 pm
a lot of money flows through china into north korea, there's a lot of various components of the ballistic missile programs that come through from chien a it's really important that we crack down on those networks, sanctions we put in place, penalize chinese companies, chinese banks that are facilitators of this. that has to be part of a larger strategy, it has to be coordinated with what is happening under secretary tillerson on the diplomatic front, has to be coordinated with the military posture approach. this has to be a coordinated strategy sanctions are one piece. >> earlier today i read story in news week about an m.i.t. scientist who thinks that kim jong un is wildly xanl rating his capabilities. but we have, i guess, an intel assessment of our own that says he might be much farther ahead than any of us would ever want. >> i've worked in this since 1992. i was there, walked the ground in seoul in 'the 3, '94 when we
4:10 pm
first had concerns about the nuclear program. original nuclear program that we entered into to prevent this, we already knew they had five weapons in '94. nuclear weapons. i think part of the intelligence community have way underestimated where he is at. i would go with, this is the way i look at it, you have to go with the worst case. >> assume the worst, right rnts assume the worst, hope for the best. as brad said, we have looked at this before, there's certain new technologies which are being introduced we have to take seriously. there's still the threat of the asymmetric threat of the north koreans giving the nukes to some one, struggled again through a container crate. no matter how you play it, they have nuclear weapons, they're trying their best to mount on it a ballistic missile, therefore you have to basically, as the president has done, say we'll take radical action should you try to could anything militarily. >> i want to show you a tweet from a former deputy national
4:11 pm
security advisor ben rhodes, worked for president obama. he said this is a key point, any chance of a deal with north korea goes out the window if trump cancelled a nuclear deal that iran is complying with. you believe basically that this is the original iran deal. what we're looking at right now. >> absolutely. so one thing at a time. right now, i really think ben rhodes and susan rice and anybody else in the obama administration ought to take a big step back and quiet down for a little bit and let the current administration handle this crisis. the obama administration in 2013 was informed by the defense intelligence agency that the north koreans had miniatureized nukes and could get them on top of icbms. for ben rhodes to talk about iran, this is what is going to happen in iran. what is happening in north korea, the same thing we'll see in iran where the iaea can't get into military sites where they dot hard- koer development. that's a problem. ben rhodes, susan rice, ought to zip it and stay out of it, leave
4:12 pm
to it trump administration, they'll do the right thing. >> laura, last question here, the chinese are looking at a possible party congress this fall, possibly, in november. how important is it for president xi to have a good conversation with president trump today to be cooperative with the united states so that he doesn't have an international crisis to deal with ahead of that meet having the communist party in china? >> well the party congress in china is extremely important. 2012 as xi was taking the reins, north korea engaged in a series of provocations that really rattled the chinese government, got under his skin. i think it's really going to be an important thing to be able to have stability heading into the party congress for xi. it's really important that we bear in mind china is never going to have the same interests that we do vis-a-vis the korean peninsula. that means that there's always going to have to be things that we need to be prepared for, that we can't just simply foist on to china. i think there are other
4:13 pm
important steps that we need to be taking. i would reiterate this has to be part of a coordinated approach. we have different messages coming out of different parts of the administration. that leaves a lot of room for miscalculation. that's my biggest concern. >> although i have a theory that actually could be all coordinated but we won't read about it until the history is written. we'll see. >> i have my doubts. >> they'll write about this, brad, in your next book. give me a credit, call your agent. thank you all. still to come should we believe kim jong un's threats or is he a madman? what do we know about the brutal regime that's shrouded in secrecy. if the president decides to take military action, what role would congress play? we're here on the president's war powers. democratic congresswoman going after gun owners. you won't believe the comparison between the nra and terrorists. new developments in the google
4:14 pm
memo controversy and why the company really cancelled a last-minute meeting. ben shapiro has his take, straight ahead. >> he's made a bunch of different claims about the memo. that you were saying in the memo that women are by lonlically unfit for tech. were you making that claim that women are by logically unfit for the tech industry?

4:18 pm
will not get away with what he's doing, believe me. if he utters one threat in the form of an overt threat, which he has been uttering for years and his family has been uttering for years, if he does anything with respect to guam, or any place else that's an american territory or an american ally, he will truly regret it. and he will regret it fast. >> a war of words between president trump and jong-un reach as fever pitch, new questions about the north korean dictator and the brutal grip he holds in the nation shrouded in secrecy. trace gallagher has a look at the man who has the world on edge. . you know, dana, it's difficult to do a deep dive into jong-un's background.
4:19 pm
his childhood and teenage years with a well-guarded secret. we don't know his exact age. he attended an english language school in switzerland under a fake name and he was a fan of action stars like jackie chan and jean claud van dam. his mother was plooefd to be kim jong il's favorite wife. rumors were that kim the younger would take over for his father. . he was given a top post in the military and put in charge of north korea's conter intelligence agency. jong-un showed he would be a ruthless leader after his father's death, ordering the execution of his own uncle and months after taking power he conducted his first nuclear test. since then, experts say u.s. intelligence agencies have likely done extensive psychological makeups on jong-un though there's no study that we
4:20 pm
know of that definitely confirms whether he is mentally unstable. in 2013 a unit for the study of personality in politics at st. john university said that its initial assessment was that jong-un is, quote, agreeable, charming with a need for external approval which is inconsistent with north korea's continued belligerent fl the most recent assessment shows at worse jong-un only has a moderate redisposition to aggressive behavior. president trump says he hopes that kim is rational but doesn't know for sure. c. ia director mike mom pe owe, rex tillerson and susan rice all believe that jong-un is rational. former homeland security secretary and current white house chief of staff john kelly says he's unsure but thinks the korean leader is probably rational. others warn that trying to decipher the behavior of such an enigmatic figure is like reading
4:21 pm
tea leaves. >> president says he's locked and loaded but can he take action without congress? chris, what does the constitution tell us about the president's war powers? i understand they're quite broad. >> the president has the constitutional authority to do anything, really, when it comes to an exigent threat, emerging threat on the united states. now, what the founders didn't foresee was that there would be so many people in congress for so long who would refuse the power that's granted them to declare war. they have devolved their power to the executive branch. over the past seven years presidents have taken -- 70 years the presidents have taken more and more pow where they can act on their own. >> austin, democrats will they be in a cooperative mood on this if the president needs their help? >> maybe, you know, the thing is the war powers act exists. gives president trump the
4:22 pm
authority he needs for the kind of actions he needs. you have to notify congress and you can't have troops there for more than 60 days without getting approval of congress. they go to congress to get confessional authorization. i think the democrats, there would be a lot of democrats who would be suspicious. they would harken back to donald trump in the campaign when he said hillary is a war monger, she's going to take us into war. bigger issue, what would the republicans say, is it wise for donald trump to pick a fight with mitch mcconnell and say he can't do his job, if you're thinking about doing military action and want to get congressional approval. >> i think mitch mcconnell is able to blow it off. but, chris, this is a different
4:23 pm
type of war. this is not getting troops ready and sending over tanks and everything into the desert for a war. this is actually nuclear war. has a way of focusing the mind. the intel question is interesting of the intel failure, of course, in 2002, 2003, right before the war in iraq. and our intel in north korea is shadey. as toby sheaffer said before, the lt. colonel, we have to assume the worst. do you think that president trump will trust the intelligence community on this? >> no one has made a larger public point of the past failings of the intelligence community than president trump president. because he -- president trump himself. he doesn't like their findings relating to russian interference in the 2016 election. he has sometimes vociferously, sometimes gently deplored their work. but he has to make the case with that. we have the troops on the korean peninsula. if this thing ticks off, even if
4:24 pm
it's not a nuclear cons krags, u.s. troops on the front line, pronto. if we get in a little bit we'll get in a lot. >> let me ask you, austin, about september. apparently the congress plans to be in for about 12 days. they have a lot on their plate including the debt ceiling. how do you see the entrepreneurs on the foreign policy side squeezing that. do you think they'll kick the can down the road and do something, short term measure and revisit it in december? >> yeah, i've never seen a can they couldn't kick in congress. if they have an option to kick the can or kick it from around the corner so nobody can see them kick it i'm sure they will do that. as i say, i think in this confrontation with korea, i hope that the sober heads are going to prevail in the white house and that, with the president, can maintain a discipline. sometimes he looks like he has had discipline here in this
4:25 pm
confrontation. stems he hasn't. if he is able to maintain that dispalestinian, i think -- discipline i think congress could get their act together. if not for a big resolution like the gulf war, something like the wars power act where they say the president can act. >> chris, the last question to you, was there anything else the president said in that ten-minute press conference, i thought he covered a lot of ground, any other headlines that stuck out to you that he will have to follow up on monday when he has more full fledgeded press conference? >> the most important thing is that he said he would do a more full fledgeded press conference. that's something that everybody should be happy about. he has been unwilling to step forward and do that sort of complete conversation. so that's good. there's a lot of questions that need answered that can't be answered sort of shouted from the front porch of your country club. you need to be able, reporters need to ask questions, do followups and have it in that setting. that's something i am concerned about. >> those reporters will be
4:26 pm
working furiously about. >> that's why i'm going on vacation. >> have a good time, you deserve it. chris, austin, thank you. still ahead, recently released from prison, chelsea manning it getting the celebrity treatment. ben shapiro has thoughts on that. democratic lawmaker looks compares nra members to terrorists. we have more on that. it's just a burst pipe, i could fix it. (laugh) no. with claim rateguard your rates won't go up just because of a claim. i totally could've - no! switching to allstate is worth it.

. >> democratic lawmaker finding herself on the receiving end of major backlash about millions of gun owners. congresswoman kathleen rice, tweeting, quote, i'm going to say it, nra and dana lash are quickly becoming domestic security threats under president trump. we can't ignore that. national correspondent ed henry is live with the backstory on this: dramatic example of how some on the left not just vilifying president trump but hitting his allies with rough attacks including the nra and potentially a five million members. started when the conservative national syndicated radio host dana lash tweeted this week about the death of orlando castillo a black man killed by police during a traffic stop, had a controlled substance while carrying a gun.
4:31 pm
kathleen rice took to social media to rip lash and the nra as well. rice tweeting if a white guy was shot dead with a legal gun and a joint in his car nra would stay silent? your ear the ones lying. then added the second tweet. i'm going to add it, nra and dana lash are quickly becoming domestic security threats under president trump. we can't ignore that. the nra part refers in part to the fact that in addition to black lives matter protests last year over castillo's death after his girlfriend live streamed the moments after the police shooting there's been anger at the nra for not standing up for the victim since he had a permit to legally carry that firearm. rash and the leadership in the nra and perhaps members are domestic security threats, that climb, that's ignited a firestorm. lash declare sheeg's waiting for the congresswoman to sic her secret police on her. rice lectured president trump for name calling, shields it was
4:32 pm
juvenile, and there was a certain amount of decorum we expect from the commander in chief. this from the congresswoman calling people she disagrees with domestic security threats. >> thank you, ed w more is lawrence jones, conservative commentator and host at "the blaze." and jack former senior democratic party advisor. getting a lot of attention for good reason. congresswoman's comments were, i think, arguably over the top. but as far as i can see she pay nos political price from her party or district for having said it. what do you think? >> well, that's an interesting part about this situation. considering this is the same congresswoman who said during the election that words matter. this congresswoman sits on the homeland security committee, gets classified information, is responsible for holding homeland accountable for keeping america safe. she's accusing nra membersnd saddam hussein a lash, my
4:33 pm
colleague, of being security threats to the united states? i think she should be more responsible. and the question is why aren't democrats and those same people that went after president trump about his worz, not holding her accountable. >> yeah, i'll let you respond to that, ed. i do wonder about why the democrats seem to pay no political price for having said something like this among the their own party. is there no desire on behalf of party leadership or peer pressure to dial it down a notch? >> i don't agree with your assessment she was casting all five million members of the nra with lack of leadership. >> of course she was. >> she was talking about the leadership and those, the spokes people for the organization. look at the language coming out of the organization. just today, the spokesman on nra tv said that north korea should be bombing california instead of guam. this is the kind of language we're seeing, the extremism that's coming out of the nra leadership. this is seen not just within this tweet, that disgusting
4:34 pm
offensive violent tweets, but also in terms of the add that they put out -- ad that they put on it, a move that, threw around words, like assassination and hitler, and it made viewers feel like they were -- their lives were in danger. identified an enemy. friends and neighbors. >> lawrence, i'll let you get in there. because it does seem like this, in some ways can you look at something and so many people in the country can see it from such vastly different views. how do you respond to his thoughts that this is really over the top from the nra's perspective? . well, the nra was talking about violence on the left. and he's referring to dana lash's ad that she released with the nra, shows them actually burning up the street because this was a peaceful protest they were showing. it was showing the violent radical left. so it was just images, and she was narrating these ads,
4:35 pm
describing what the left is doing. but he can spin this all he wants. get to the bottom of it, conservatives and libertarians have been talking about this, about the left trying to take our guns away. when we talk about, as i say being dramatic, we're being not reasonable, but this is what this really goes to. all members of the nra and dana loesh accused of being violent toward the united states. if they think that law enforcement can protect this country by themselves they're delusional. the mebls of the nra, longest and strongest civil rights organization in the country, keeps america safe as well as law enforcement. >> zach? >> that is simply divorced from reality. we're talking about some one dana loesh, said john lewis was unamerican and a threat to democracy. that is completely outrageous. just shows the extremism out of the leadership of the nra between this ad and between
4:36 pm
threatening us with nuclear weapons should be used against california. that is outrageous and they should apologize, the nra. >> it feels like dana loesch is a lightning rod. go line by line what she's saying it is more reasonable. than the congresswoman took. calling peep am degs mess particular terrorist goes too far. >> she did not call her a domestic terrorist. >> if you're going to write it in a tweet you said it. lawrence, zach. >> she's a homeland security member! >> still ahead new developments in the google memo controversy. surprising new calls from some on the left who say it's the ceo who should step down for stifling free speech. one day after president trump declares a new national emergency on potoid abuse, two people directly connected to the epidemic. >> president trump: we'll spend a lot of time, a lot of effort

>> president trump: the oiloid crisis is an emergency and i'm saying officially, right now, it is an emergency, the opoid crisis is a national emergency. >> declaring it a national emergency. it opens up federal funds and resources to directly combat the problem which statistics show has grown to staggering proportions in the united states. according to the cdc since 1999 the number of overdose deaths involving opoids has kwa drupled -- quadrupled, 91 per day. this is a mother who lost her daughter to the opiod epidemic. let me start with you, letty, thank you for being o i'm so sorry for your loss. what was it like for you when you realized that there was an
4:42 pm
addiction problem with your daughter? i believe you weren't even aware that there was an opiate problem brewing in the united states? >> that's very true. i had no idea there was an opiate problem. i didn't realize there was a crisis already in hand. she started out taking pills, and then moved to heroin. that's when she came to me and told me what was happening. even then i didn't realize it was as dangerous as it was. i thought it was simple matter of going into treatment and getting help. it's much more complicated than that. it was at that time hard to find the help, some one to talk to and resources. so by declaring that this opiod crisis is a national emergency, that will really help open resources, help people talk, reduce stigma, bring communities into awareness of what is happening to try and help a whole generation of young people that i think we're losing bows of the opiod epidemic. >> dr. crystal, what would this mean for a company like yours,
4:43 pm
if there is a declaration of a national emergency, it's not very clear to me yet what would happen with what is the support from the federal government that would then flow out. for you what on you do you think it could do for your company to help others? >> thank you. so a lot of this is through accelerations. i think that we have already been very grateful for the trumped a mshgs, president trump, to declare a state of national emergency. it means we can crack on, and develop our products beyond just the narcan nasal spray. that's our first product, licensed through our partner, being made available throughout the nation. our work isn't done. for us, more funding, greater collaboration, and more rapid access to funding can drive some of our other programs to help combat this epidemic. >> for you, letty, when you look at maybe giving awareness to

other parents what would be one thing. is there a law enforcement component that you think needs to take place? >> there are some law enforcement agencies that are already a step ahead of where they need to be. they have realized they can't arrest their way out of this problem. and they're being proactive and they're allowing people to come in. it's different agencies. very limited. but people to come in and say i need help. they can hand over their pamp, their drugs, not -- par if a nailia, they aren't arrested before they go into treatment. this is a disease. we can't arrest them. it's not going to help them. you could but it doesn't help. this is a disease that needs to be treated, families supported, people need on work together. >> for you, doctor, are there other companies that are sort of working towards this same goal? when i think of national emergency, i think that means like all hands on deck. surely, i hope, you aren't the

only company out there working on this. >> well, that's partially true, unfortunately. but we are one of the only companies in our industry with a dedicated focus toward addiction. we look at opiod addiction, alcohol addiction, even food addiction. there are other companies out there. but if you compared that to perhaps the oncology field, it's very small. so perhaps, again, this funding and this declaration of a national emergency will at least open up the field. we're driven no matter what, we're committed to this space, and we're here for the long run. we have programs as early as what we're doing with the heroin vaccine. and i'm hopeful that some of the other programs as well can really accelerate with this national emergency declaration. >> all right, well, letty and doctor crystal, thank you for being here. limity, again, we are so sorry for your loss, appreciate you being to talk about it. >> thank you very much. thank you for allowing me to speak for megan. >> absolutely, thank you.

>> reporting illegal activity at google that you are attempting to expose? >> the trouble is they treat people differently in the hiring process depending on what their race or gender is. >> are you making the claim, google memo guy, that women are biologically unfit for the tech industry? >> no, i was just trying to explain why we see a disparity in the population of people that are interested in working in tech. >> that was part of ben shapiro's interview with fired google employee james damore. just last night we told you xwoogle had decided to cancel a town hall meant to address the controversy. now the company's ceo is facing sharp criticism for his handling of the ordeal. david brooks even writing in the "new york times" that he should resign.
4:51 pm
saying in part, he could have wrestled with the tension between population level research and individual experience. he could have stood up for the free flow of information. instead he joined the mob. this episode suggests he should seek a nonleadership position. ben shapiro is the "daily" wire chief. you had the first interview with him. >> i think other people talked to him before i did. >> i was trying to give you elevation. >> i don't want to take credit a way from anybody else. but my take-away, this was not somebody who is seeking to destroy the idea of women in tech. there's a whole pain and a half of the memo specifically dedicated to the idea of how do we get more women into tech. one of the reasons you don't see as many women in tech, fewer women are interested in getting into tech because of the demands of work-life balance, the way that the job is done. he looks at that, the social science date, a maybe we can

maybe the jobs more attractive to women. he's run out of the rail with google, demonstrates the orthodoxy, if you are a her a particular you have to be ousted by the upper echelon. >> was surprised he got fired. isn't this something when you are 28 years old, get a warning, maybe a memo in your file it got so big, wept around the internet, google was forced into a position where the diversity advocates in google who can't stand an owe po o. posing opinion felt they had to make a stink of it. they were afraid some one would launch a lawsuit. women were staying home from work because they were offended. sort of proves his point about ditcheses between the sexes. if you want to prove that women are completely the same as men in the workplace, i don't know how many men would take off the day for sexism reasons. >> you obviously advice it a lot of campuses where there is obviously an attempt to restrict free speech. it was interesting they did this at google, cancel the foun hall

meeting, peep were afraid for their safety? >> i mean, i head heard that, i'd like to see the evidence, who was being threatened. threats of violence are out of bounds on all grounds. people of the right were threatening people about diversity meetings and that's obviously out of bounds. but let's see the evidence of it. >> we have another story, white house aid amaroso is finding herself at the center of a controversy. invited to be a panelist during black journalist conference. shortly after she was added two journalists dropped out, but they claim she wasn't the reason. i feel bad for her, a picture there, some of the journalists got up and turned their backs to her. i can understand if they don't agree with her policies or that of president trump. surely they should be proud of her getting this position in the white house and give her the courtesy of a listen. >> this is the biggest problem, this notion that you go to lectures and then you turn your back on the person who is there. what exactly are they protesting from omorosa?
4:54 pm
looking for the policy that they're very angry about. my understanding is that he was at this event, criticized the president on such things as his talk about treatment by police of criminals. so she wasn't exact toeing the party line. but she was treated as an outcast, the national association of black journalist's is apparently the national association of leftist journalists. >> she was in prison for one of the worst security preaches in history but chelsea manning, talk about her a lot, getting this full celebrity treatment complete with a lengthy profile in vogue and photo shoot by a famed celebrity photographer. what do you think about this, because in some ways, it's just, it feels like a push from the left to glamourize somebody who, one, broke the law. and also i don't know if she deserves this kind of celebrity treatment. >> it's a slap in the face to all americans, and people in the

milliontry, who are victimized by chelsea manning's behavior when she was leaking military secrets to wikileaks. what is amazing about this, is the left trying to use identity politics as a cover for anti-patriotism. she's a traitor and now they say if you don't like chelsea manning being a traitor it's because you're anti-trans. chelsea manning has tweeted out he isn't watching this segment to which i tweeted back, i hope not, because i wouldn't want chelsea manning to let al qaeda know it's happening. >> it's true, and i think obviously annie veivowitz, there that's high praise. other transgenders get this treatment. but when it came to what he did, when it came to stealing those documents that, crossed the line, giving those to wikileaks. >> totally free a lot of controversy over people like kaitlin jenner and whether they should get star treatment over a controversial question about mental illness or not mental illness. >> we have to run. >> they use that as a shield for bad behavior and suggest that

anyone -- >> thanks, ben. where to go, and how to work around your uc. that's how i thought it had to be. but then i talked to my doctor about humira, and learned humira can help get and keep uc under control... when certain medications haven't worked well enough. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. raise your expectations and ask your gastroenterologist if humira may be right for you. with humira, control is possible.
