3:00 pm
done. >> i think everything you do against him has to be asymmetrical. the one thing the clinton team has going for them is you have to undermine him. >> the republicans didn't get into that until it was too late. "with all due respect" starts 14 seconds late. sorry, here you go. e-mail, the e-mail, what, what. to whom it may concern. it's an official e-mail. let me start over. the official e-mail. the official e-mail. what, what? to whom it may concern.
3:01 pm
this is to notify you from e-mails from a personal account to department account is not an appropriate method of preserving any e-mails that will constitute a federal e-mail. what the crap? you should surrendered all e-mails dealing with department business before leaving government service. well mr. ig, are you a spy? this appears to be a serious issue. i'd love to respond to your e-mail. too bad it's already been deleted. now on with the show. >> hello. tonight we're talking about e-mail. the state department inspector general released a report on the world's most famous private
3:02 pm
e-mail system while serving as secretary of state. the scathing report confirms a lot of things that we already knew. also she was not the only secretary of the state to do government business on a personal account. this tough report written by barack obama's government told us some new and important things. some of her aids did not cooperate with the investigation. they had told it was reviewed and approved. there was no evidence it was reviewed or approved. the clinton camp said nothing to see here. republicans, of course, were quick to jump on the news and condemn the democratic front-runner's judgment.
3:03 pm
yes, those questioning her judgment include donald j. trump, billionaire. >> as i say crooked hillary, crooked hillary. she's as crooked as they come. she had a little bad news today from some reports came down weren't so good. the inspector general's report, not good. i want to run against hillary. i just want to run against her. i don't know if you're going to be able to. it could be we're going to run against crazy bernie. >> not good says donald trump in anaheim about this report. going to talk about it during the show all night. let's start by asking the basic question. this has been a low grade fever pr her campaign. what has it become now the wake of this report? >> i generally don't -- echoing donald trump that much but in this case i echo donald trump.
3:04 pm
not good as a matter of substance. it's going to be follow up reporting about the story like people raising red flags within the state department being told nothing say here at the time. i think the ball rests with the fbi investigation. clinton going to talk to the fbi. will there be some criminal charges brought against any clinton aids, et cetera. that's still the big kahuna politically. this brings it back up to the surface. >> it's not a legal indictment but an indictment of her judgment in a very serious way by an independent investigator. i will say this, she should cooperate. i'm sure her lawyer is saying you can't cooperate while the fbi is looking at it. if she wants to be president and have a commitment to getting the
3:05 pm
facts, she should have cooperated with the investigation. >> two key things. for a year we heard this is not all that unusual what she did. this report makes clear it was unusual. secondly, they made a big point of saying she always wants to cooperate with everyone. that's always been her thing. it's an important talking point. not only should she have done it for good governance but good politics too. >> the report said there was one instance that the server was under some threat by somebody trying to hack into it. that will be looked into to.
3:06 pm
>> that's a big political problem. ever since it's been clear the donald trump and hillary clinton would be representative party nominee. the new trump brand that's hitting stores near you. this campaign event sparks demonstrations and arrest as seen in new mexico last night. protesters interrupted trump
3:07 pm
instead of being removed. trump did what trump does. he inflamed it. >> you can get them out. get them out. get them out. get home to mom. go home to mommy. get them out of here. get them out. get them out of here. he can't get a date so he's doing this instead. come on. go ahead, get them out of here. this is so exciting, isn't it. still wearing diapers. look at this kid. the kid looks like he's ten years old. i've never seen that. >> all right. today, trump tweeted about the events. the protesters in new mexico were thugs who were flying the mexican flag. the rally inside was big and beautiful but outside, criminals exclamation point. it's a different world now that we're in a general election
3:08 pm
contest. how much worse are the optics of all this for trump in this new context? >> i'm a big fan of the first amendment and that includes the right of speakers to speak. if this continues day in and day out, it will be part of the clinton campaign trying to paint him as a chaos candidate. i think it rallies his base. i think his conduct in those clips is not winning formula. it's trump being trump. he can be trump in some other way. it does rally his base. they will pay more attention to it than people who are voting on other issues. >> i think his base is already rallied and will be for a long time. i don't think that helps him again. what i keep thinking about, who are the persuadable voters. who are the people on the fence and who will movable? do they look at that donald trump? that mocking donald trump. that behavior mocking, bullying. you can think they are within
3:09 pm
their rights to protest, which i do. they are not allowed to disrupt. the bottom line is just that it's inflaming it rather than trying to tamp it down. d >> he's said and done things outrageous. i think it's probably not helpful. >> i'm not obsessing about it. images like this if they play out through the fall -- >> the images themselves? >> i think both. i think his reaction is not helpful for him and i think the images are bad.
3:10 pm
>> i don't love his reaction. donald trump is working on another brand. trump has been pretty successful so far at consolidating support inside the party. the latest news is key and reported first by our bloomberg colleague. the house speaker, paul ryan, is saying he's ready to end his stand off and endorse him as the party's nominee. he said he still hasn't made up his mind but a spokesman told bloomberg politics that the speaker will talk by phone. if ryan does endorse trump, how will that impact any cal cue g
3:11 pm
calculations romney has about getting in this race and going after trump. >> i don't know how seriously he's thinking about getting in this race. in any scenario it would be a race decided in the house of representatives. not that he would get to 270 electoral votes and having paul ryan be speaker of the house and be on his side would make securing the presidency in that farfetched scenario would make it easier than having ryan be an official trump backer. >> i think the stop trump movements rest primarily on if mitt romney decides to do this. i think it becomes mump harder. it's already hard for people in
3:12 pm
the anti-trump movement to say i'm this but a lot of people i like and respect are endorsing trump, et cetera. for romney to say this is a moral outrage, the notion that donald trump is our nominee and could be president when the guy he picks as a running mate endorses him. i think it would cut the legs out from romney's moral position that he wants to take into the race if he gets in. >> i think it's completely right. very difficult for romney in this instance. i can't help but wonder how lonely romney feels. he went out far on the limb and took a stance of real principle and some bravery and now he looks around and sees all of these people who he thought were -- >> including a lot of his big
3:13 pm
kn donors. >> they have not only flocked to trump but abandoned romney and now he's looking at the possibility that ryan may do the same. very hard. all right. hillary clinton may have a new surrogate in her corner, massachusetts senator elizabeth warren who has stayed on the sideline. used some highly brooklyn friendly talking points last night. more on what she said and trump's response after these words from our sponsors. police are moving against protesters after a trump rally in anaheim, california. there have been a few arrests for unlawful assembly for protesters throwing rocks at police horses. these protests not as wild as what we saw at a trump rally in new mexico last night. we'll continue to keep an eye on any developments. "with all due respect" continues after this. (war drums beating)

3:16 pm
endorsement of elizabeth warren would be a huge plum for either of the contestants. so far the scourge of wall street has bemained neutral. warren upped her anti-trump rhetoric by embracing a message that the clinton campaign has been pushing hard. we talked about the coordinating strategy of fanning surrogates out to criticize the presumptive nominee for saying in 2006 that he hoped the market crashed so he could make more money. now warren is joining in. >> donald trump was drooling over the idea of a housing meltdown because it meant he could buy up more property on the cheap. what kind of man does that? what kind of man roots for people to get thrown out of their house? what can of man roots for people to get thrown out of their jobs? to root for people to lose their
3:17 pm
pensions? i'll tell you exactly what kind of a man does that. it's man who cares about no one but himself. a small [ applause ] a small, insecure money grubber who doesn't care who gets hurt so long as he makes a profit off of it. what kind of a man does that? man that will never be president of the united states. >> trump attacked warren last night. warren attacked trump on twitter today. my question relates to the democratic party. hillary is facing this challenge. how will she bring in the party together and bring sanders people in. if elizabeth warren is speaking that hot, that kind of rhetoric.
3:18 pm
>> we don't know how much elizabeth warren is following, how big it is compared to bernie sanders. we know there's a lot of overhappove overlap. we know bernie sanders is likely to be in the tonight. i think whether sanders -- i think it will bring it in the fold faster. >> there's no doubt that elizabeth warren is a huge asset. i don't know it will help. i don't know that her presence will do anything to sanders
3:19 pm
head. it helps with clinton. in the end it's still about what bernie sanders want and he's still more key to unify than she is. she's a clip to some extent. i believe he will be fighting a lot more of an uphill battle whatever he wants at the convention or beyond. >> all right. coming up, a little advice from donald trump from an ad maker high pressure republican strategist fred davis out in la joins us right after this.
3:20 pm

3:22 pm
joining us now from southern california, fred davis. republican campaign strategist and legendary ad maker. he's worked for the super pac that was trying to get john kasich the nomination. fred is in his native territory of las vegas. thank you for coming back on the program. >> thank you for having me. >> what makes you certain this is a political problem for her? >> it's a problem but one more drip in a constant faucet of drips she's had for how much, two years now. i think the more drips that come, soon it's going to be a big puddle. one of these days it might just drown her. let me run a theory by you as i watch the beginnings of this trump versus clinton general
3:23 pm
election. for all his flaws as a candidate, he's a better performer. he's got greater capacity to drive the news cycle where he wants it to go than she does. that matters as much or more than anything else on the two sides. >> i think that's right. he's far better at that. not only that, he's sort of the new thing. he's the new shiny object. hillary, you can't really say that. she's been around forever. her family has been around forever. >> we're going to have you to lead us there what you would do if you were working for trump. you worked for the kasich super pac. he said a lot of things about trump not being the right guy for the party. he still hasn't endorsed him. a lot of republicans felt strongly that trump was the
3:24 pm
wrong guy to be the republican nominee and not someone with problems in the general election but really, deeply wrong. you've made your peace with the idea of trump as nominee, right? just explain your thinking how you came from being pretty strongly anti-trump to being supportive of him. >> a couple of things. number one, it's a given. he's going to be the nominee. i heard a bit of your show prior to think and i think you agree with me. number two, he brought in this excitement and a whole group of new people into the party. there's a lot of polls out there that say these aren't really new people and some gentlemen that you guys work with have been promoting that theory. i think he has brought excitement and interest and newness to this race and now all he has to do is pick up the establishment. all these people the republican
3:25 pm
party has been trying to get, he got. he missed the solid regulars. he missed the john kasich's. that's where the work comes. they're going to be easier to get than the add ons because nobody has been able to tuouch them. >> you call yourself a conservative, right? >> right. >> by what measure do you think trump is a conservative? >> i have to say he's a republican. that's all i can say. we have heard liberal things, moderate things and conservative things. who knows what he really is. that's what elections are about. i think people like you will push until we know what the real donald trump is like. >> you've had a lot of clients, republican clients for statewide office and other offices. which of them remind you of donald trump? >> do you remember the name maury taylor. >> presidential candidate in
3:26 pm
1992. >> 6. >> that was the first presidential campaign. he reminds me exactly. i loved him. he's still a corporate client of ours. he reminds me of donald trump but without the name recognition brought about. >> he was a successful businessman. >> a wheel magnet, rubber tires and stuff. >> you're exactly right. steel wheels. then he got into tires. he was out spoken. you could call it outrageous. he still is to this day. he drew attention but he didn't start with 100% name id. if he had, he could have been a name contender. that's the one he reminds me. >> do you have people in your life who are still hold outs against trump and do you think they will stay that way or come around? >> the shocks to me are the ones who i think were dyed in the wool against trump who are
3:27 pm
coming around. one gentleman that watches your show every day so he's probably watching now from naples, florida, he called me a few months ago to say he and his wife thought the republican party needed a major shake up and donald trump was the shake up that was needed. you could have scraped me off the floor. somebody that's this big, major, ceo and very intelligent but he did. i think that's a lot more that happens as well. >> i talked to one republican who said trump's supreme court list that he put out was enough for them. that was enough, exactly as planned by the trump campaign to say here is this list of people i put on the court and now is enough for this person to go from never trump to he's better than hillary. >> the better than hillary right now is the only hurdle you have to get over. that's maybe not that difficult if you're a republican or even a moderate. >> stand by.
3:28 pm
after this we'll break down what fred thinks trump could do to improve his brand even more. we'll talk about that right after this. >>uh, hello!? a meeting? it's a big one. too bad. we are double booked: diarrhea and abdominal pain. why don't you start without me? oh. yeah. if you're living with frequent, unpredictable diarrhea and abdominal pain, you may have irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhea, or ibs-d. a condition that can be really frustrating. talk to your doctor about viberzi, a different way to treat ibs-d. viberzi is a prescription medication you take every day that helps proactively manage both diarrhea and abdominal pain at the same time. so you stay ahead of your symptoms. viberzi can cause new or worsening abdominal pain. do not take viberzi if you have or may have had: pancreas or severe liver problems, problems with alcohol abuse, long-lasting or severe constipation, or a blockage of your bowel or gallbladder. if you are taking viberzi, you should not take medicines that cause constipation. the most common side effects of viberzi include constipation, nausea, and abdominal pain.
3:29 pm
stay ahead of ibs-d... with viberzi. mobility is very important to me. that's why i use e*trade mobile. it's on all my mobile devices, so it suits my mobile lifestyle. and it keeps my investments fully mobile... even when i'm on the move. sign up at and get up to six hundred dollars. ah, my poor mouth breather. allergies? stuffy nose? can't sleep? enough. take that. a breathe right nasal strip of course. imagine just put one on and pow! it instantly opens your nose up to 38% more than allergy medicine alone. so you can breathe, and sleep. better than a catnap.
3:30 pm
shut your mouth and say goodnight, mouthbreathers. breathe right.
3:31 pm
we're now back with republican strategist, ad maker, fred davis. let's talk about trump's brand if you were so on the train that you were making his ads and worried about his brand, what would your posture be? >> if you remember about a year ago, a representative of the trump campaign did call us. i actually got to go through that exercise once upon a time. i think i was exactly right at the time. i was a year ahead of time. i said he had to not be donald trump. he couldn't be the apprentice guy. he couldn't brag. his couldn't use his helicopters and airplanes. that was probably the worst
3:32 pm
advice i've ever given anyone. i think the helicopter and the airplanes became icons in the primary race and did a great service for donald. i think right now he needs to get to what i was recommending a year ago, which is he can go on and use the plane and the helicopters and do his rallies that he does so well. he can still be a little bit outrageous in those. that has attracted a certain type of voter to the donald trump group and it's a winning coalition. he needs to get me. he needs to get more establishment types back on board and to do that, number one, i think he needs to be presidential. you hear that a lot. i'm not the only one that says it. not maybe in his rallies, but i think paul manafort is doing a good job getting him more presidential in that direction. then real quickly, he has to shift it to being more about me and more about you and more
3:33 pm
about every american voter than it is about donald trump. i'm tiring of hearing of how successful he is. if he continues in his rally to say how successful he is but his paid advertising makes him look presidential and talks about what his brain is going to do for me, is it going to help me pay my mortgage, help me make my car payment. more about me, less about trump. finally, because people vote for people they like and both hillary and donald have a little upside down problem in their likeability. he needs to be humanized a bit. i've never met him. i've talked to some people who have had dinner with him and just his dinner conversation and some of those things he's pretty normal. the eating at mcdonalds. all that kind of stuff. you couldn't expect that unless you heard it from somebody who went and dined with lihim.
3:34 pm
i think there's a twofold approach. keep doing what you're doing because it's working in the rallies but let the rest of us see you have a serious presidential side. >> i want you to pretend that you just drank an entire bottle of bourbon and you're looking at me and you -- i have morphed into donald trump. i've invited you in and said those are some interesting general ideas, i'm thinking about hiring you to be my ad guy. make the pitch how you would execute that. give me your pitch to mr. trump about what you would specifically do. what kind of ads would you put on the air, what duration, when? >> i would start with a race defining film. it's not that hard to define hillary clinton and donald trump as two different people. the closest i could come out here in hollywood where this is used a lot is defining it based on something else. mine would be morning in america
3:35 pm
for ronald reagan. he wasn't in the ads but people were. people that were just getting married, people that got their first home and putting their kids through college because ronald reagan had been president. i think that was past tense. this could be future tense. they're concerned as proven. he just needs to show how his successes help me and from everything i know about donald trump, that's a pitch that he probably would appreciate it. >> you would go with a long film released pretty soon and get up on the air with a bunch of 60s, 30s, what would it look like? >> i would start with the long film. i would make a 60 out of that and run it heavily on
3:36 pm
broadcasting cable and for the remainder of the campaign, you have to contrast with hillary somewhat. i don't think in donald's unusual case he has to do it as much as others do. i think the most important thing he can do is say i'm going to make your life better. it doesn't have to be what's wrong with hillary. the press does a pretty good job of talking about that. i think he needs to come off as presidential. make he's not even in his ads. maybe it's just people talking about their hopes and dreams and how a donald trump can help fulfill it. i think people thought that about barack obama in 2008. four years later, they were disappointed that their mortgage wasn't paid and they didn't have a new car and some of those things which was a problem for obama. i think donald trump, it's possible, he could make people lives better and sure sell the
3:37 pm
story. >> tell me something you think the clinton campaign is doing well now. >> we have a whole minute for me to fill. >> 30 seconds. >> my point being i don't think they're doing much very well. >> i got the joke. >> yeah. >> do you see anything they're doing well? >> i really don't so far. i anticipate them doing something. what do you think they're doing well? >> raising money. i'll tell you this, they're not leaking. you see stories about tension within the trump campaign. clinton campaign, you don't hear much about debates about strategy and tactics. >> you're right. >> she's also not going out of her way to offend any large segments of the american electorate. >> who could you be talking about? >> thank you. >> great to see you. >> up next, mr. barry bennett
3:38 pm
from the trump campaign and senator rubio's former spokesman join us right here after this. ps with toothpaste or plain water. and even though their dentures look clean, in reality they're not. if a denture were to be put under a microscope, we can see all the bacteria that still exists on the denture, and that bacteria multiplies very rapidly. that's why dentists recommend cleaning with polident everyday. polident's unique micro clean formula works in just 3 minutes, killing 99.99% of odor causing bacteria. for a cleaner, fresher, brighter denture every day. people are taking charge of their type 2 diabetes with non-insulin victoza®. for a while, i took a pill to lower my blood sugar. but it didn't get me to my goal. so i asked my doctor about victoza®. he said victoza® works differently than pills. and comes in a pen. victoza® is proven to lower blood sugar and a1c. it's taken once a day, any time. victoza® is not for weight loss, but it may help you lose some weight.
3:39 pm
victoza® works with your body to lower blood sugar in 3 ways: in the stomach, the liver, and the pancreas. vo: victoza® is an injectable prescription medicine that may improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes when used with diet and exercise. it is not recommended as the first medication to treat diabetes and should not be used in people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. victoza® has not been studied with mealtime insulin. victoza® is not insulin. do not take victoza® if you have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer, multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you are allergic to victoza® or any of its ingredients. symptoms of a serious allergic reaction may include itching, rash, or difficulty breathing. tell your doctor if you get a lump or swelling in your neck. serious side effects may happen in people who take victoza®, including inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis). stop taking victoza® and call your doctor right away if you have signs of pancreatitis such as
3:40 pm
severe pain that will not go away in your abdomen or from your abdomen to your back, with or without vomiting. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take and if you have any medical conditions. taking victoza® with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. the most common side effects are headache, nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting. side effects can lead to dehydration, which may cause kidney problems. if your pill isn't giving you the control you need ask your doctor about non-insulin victoza®. it's covered by most health plans. joining us now, barry bennett. we won't talk about the size of either one of your hands. right or left. thank you for being here. barry, let me ask you this
3:41 pm
question. we talked yesterday. we did a whole i love the 90s special. there was a report about we want to make an issue out of white water. explain the political sense that's entailed at this moment seems to be a campaign that's almost entirely negative about hillary clinton and specifically negative about things that happened when the clinton administration and around the clinton's in the 1990s. >> it's a lot of ammo there to begin with. i don't think that's what the campaign will be about. i think it's what's keeping them off balance right now. it will be about people who are in pain. schools that don't work. the heroin problem. >> why are we talking about bill clinton's accusations about him by various women and about vince foster and now we're going to be talking about white water.
3:42 pm
i understand those are big issues. right now, why are we talking about these things and how does that benefit your boss? >> i think right now we have them totally knocked back. >> what's the evidence for that? >> what's their message? i have no clue. >> what's the evidence right now that you think they seem knocked off their game? what are you seeing that makes you feel the argument? >> i can't remember the last news cycle that they won. i can't remember one. >> tell us where you are having worked for marco rubio. tell us where you are. >> i'm still staying neutral. frankly, i'm not going to vote for hillary clinton, but donald trump hasn't earned my vote yet. things like where he went to new mexico and insulted the new mexico governor who happened to endorse marco rubio who is a fantastic governor of rising star and the republican party, things like that make me more weary of donald trump.
3:43 pm
>> here's your chance. win him over. >> i've been in alex's claire before. i held my nose and voted for both of them. come fall, i know he's going to vote for him. >> you're suggesting the best argument to convince alex is to hold his nose and vote for him? >> no, no. i'm saying he needs to take his time. he'll come to it. >> what's trump doing now that does appeal to you? >> i don't really matter but people who do matter paul ryan, ted cruz. the reason they're not supporting donald trump yet, i think that's a cause for concern from the trump campaign. i think they should be doing everything they can to unite the party. >> what is donald trump doing as a candidate that's piappealing you? >> him putting out his supreme court list.
3:44 pm
i liked that. i like the speech to the national rifle association. i want to be convinced he will govern as a limited government conservative. he's not spelled out a lot of his agenda yet. i think the campaign is moving to a different phase. we don't know what a trump presidency would look like yet. they have taken affirmative steps in the recent weeks. the clinton campaign is working overtime to try to define what a trump presidency would look like. >> i'm not asking you to try the explain things that confuse me. we have noted on the show that trump has done a shockingly good job, the speed at which the party has unified around him.
3:45 pm
in the middle of this project, why go to new mexico and assault the republican governor of that state. >> i don't think it was the intention to go there to do that. >> he took 40 seconds of the speech to do it. >> i don't think she will be a trumper. hopefully over time it will get better. >> why not say nothing? what benefit is gained of donald trump beati ining up a prominen republican governor. >> it doesn't hurt him in new mexico at all. nobody walked out last night. he's not going to abide by the old rules. he's got this new formula in his head. he's done well at it. >> i'm going to ask you three questions. one word answers. mitt romney running for president. >> not going to happen.
3:46 pm
>> that's more than one word. >> silly. >> tom cotton as donald trump's running mate? >> good or not? >> great. >> one word, dude. >> i want trump to ideally have a vice president who is the next generation conservative serious about governing. >> tom cotton as running mate. >> like. >> last thing, this ig report about hillary clinton's e-mails. one word. >> confused. >> okay. >> devastating. >> is this just today's news cycle or this lingers? >> the most important part was they violated the rules. the rules cover the law, the federal records act. if she violated, it doesn't mean
3:47 pm
