4:15 am
we're seeing that pattern play out once more. help us understand the political benefit here for the president continuing with the back and forth with representative omar, in particular. >> it plays to his base. but at the same time, base voters can't vote twice. he's got the base and some republicans wish as certainly next year, he'll have to broaden his base and appeal to independents who picked him over hillary clinton. so politically, yeah, it works but he's already got this part of the voting block already. >> how does it play with the swing voters? >> i think it hurts them. i think it's a big controversy. i think people are tired of the controversies and that's why i think it's going to be difficult for him to win those voters over again. it depends, of course, who the democratic nominee is. >> the house condemned his remarks as racist. a fellow party lines, pretty much. what are republican lawmakers doing to distance themselves or are they? >> they are just carefully. if you distance yourself too much from the president, you could lose a primary.
4:16 am
that's what they're concerned about. we've seen people like mark sand burg, republican from south carolina lost his primary because he distanced himself too much. >> is there a new definition for racism and racist? i think that's the crux of what is happening. >> yeah. and you're going to see race throughout this. and if you thought the 2016 election was ugly, this is going to be uglier. >> how do you think what we're seeing play out now when the president was sort of floating this notion with the tweet, first of all, initially or a sort of stepped into this debate that was happening within the democratic party. right. you've had the four congresswomen very much on the left going at him in a public way with nancy pelosi, president trump inserting himself with the tweets last weekend, and then now escalading the point where you have the chants. what does this mean for 2020 as he hits the campaign trail? >> this means when democrats are fighting that trump is going to insert himself. thing this situation, it was
4:17 am
remarkable. nancy pelosi and these four freshman were fighting publicly. you didn't see that before. i think this backfired on the president. bob mueller testifies this week. he delayed testimony. what are both parties looking to get out of this testimony? >> well, certainly, democrats need some new news. i think they have to have some distance between mueller and attorney general barr. that's what i think they are going to focus on. however, mueller, i think, will dodge a lot of questions. republicans will say case closed. it's over. why are we doing this? and there is some mueller fatigue in this country. >> does this force the issue of impeachment for democrats? that's a big question. does it move the needle. if it doesn't, democrats, at some point, i think this year have to decide impeachment or not. they can't go into 2020 with this question. >> bob cusack, thank you very much. >> thank you. today marks 50 years since the greatest technological achievement in human history. the eagle has landed at 4:17 in

4:19 am
white house wants another moon landing to happen. >> one small step for man, but -- >> kneel armstrong stepping on to the sea of tranquility 50 years ago today was a singular american achievement. it couple nated the work of over 400,000 people over the course of nearly a decade. armstrong and aldrin spent about 2.5 hours outside the eagle. they collected about 47,000 pounds of moon rocks, planted an american flag, and blasted off to reach collins who was circling aboard. armstrong and aldrin weren't the last people to walk on the moon. nasa continued the program for three aalmo years sending ten more astronauts to the surface. aldrin and collins reunited. the photo op turned into a
4:20 am
prompted debate where nasa should go next. >> how long of a trip to mars? about a seven month journey there. >> you like it direct? >> yes. it seems to be more direct. i mean, who knows better than these people. >> in may, president trump added $1.6 billion to nasa's 2020 budget to fast track a new lunar landing. >> we're changing the culture. we're saying we're going to go. we're going to go quickly and safely. we're going to do things deliberately but we are going to go and we're going to max the rhetoric with the budget and we're going to do it in a time scale that is achievable. >> jim bridenstine spoke with us in may to talk about the revised moon program called artemis. >> we landed there six times from 1969 to 1972.
4:21 am
e're going to stay. this is going forward to the moon. this is sustainable architecture. we're g technology. we're going to prove capability. >> reporter: the deadline of 2024 is a no go unless congress approves the funds. there's a detailed plan how to get there. just no plan how to play the astronaut cost. there's no telling when the next step on the moon will happen. and the next american moon landing will reflect a half century of progress. not only in technology but also in social thinking because the next group of astronauts to step foot there will include at least one woman. >> mark, thank you. here, here! >> yeah. >> it's heart warming when we did this 50 years ago. >> it is. and the debate to go straight to mars or stop at the moon first is an interesting one. >> it was fascinating to watch it play out in the oval office. >> how do you win the pr on that one? you don't. against the two astronauts who
