wouldn't normally get on our political radar, what scientists are calling the species has us excited. it is being dubbed the ginsberg "a" after the supreme court justice ruth bader ginsburg. and see why they say it's a perfect homage to her. >> we named it in honor of her commitments to women's rights and because of the jabot, the lace around the neck. and hillary clinton may have landed a number of political punches to the donald during a high profile speech. it was madeleine albright who put salt in the wounds who said that trump would fail her own class at georgetown. >> we can't have somebody in there that doesn't understand the issues and then make snap decisions. by the way, i'm a professor at georgetown university.
and i teach a course on decision making. donald trump would flunk my course. meanwhile, trump doubled down on his attacks on the district judge presiding over his trump university case telling the "wall street journal" the judge has a quote, absolute conflict in presiding over the case, given that he is of mexican heritage. he says because he's quote building a wall it's an inheerntss conflict -- inherent conflict of interest. the statement said, trump continues to inject divisive politics into the contest and now it had bled over into his legal troubles. the case will be heard following the 2016 general election. and then there's bernie sanders who's moving full steam ahead tone tuesday's -- into tuesday's primary and he's enlisted the help of singer dave matthews. finally while evens jonah ryan may be the most obnoxious on television, he comes with his own website.

nominee. i can't imagine them going away in cleveland. >> kind of scary to think what cleveland might look given the protests we have seen so far. especially if it continues to build. well, the foreign policy speech focused on going after trump, with stinging one liners. is this the most effective attack? >> i think this is an effective attack for clinton. this something that democrats have been pushing her to do for a while. we have seen her surrogates going after trump, saying he wasn't qualified. hit him on trump university. her she was in a place that she's very strong. foreign policy is something that clinton does well with. she was contrasting her experience with donald trump and came after him in the harshest light we have seen yet. i think it was very effective. >> well, you mentioned trump university. after all the allegations, trump says he wants to reopen the school because quote, there's so much interest in it. is this a businessman who will try to capitalize on any kind of
publicity? >> i think this is donald trump trying to spin it in the donald trump's way. you know, he takes to twitter and he talks about things and because everyone is talking about it, i doubt donald trump university is going to reopen. but the fact that everyone is talking about it he's just trying to make -- to turn the conversation from negative to the positive. >> all right. eliza, thank you. you have a great weekend. >> thanks, you too. just ahead, has the big foot been discovered? one man thinks so. a big oops moment at a museum in pennsylvania. you're watching "first look." tired of re-dosing antacids?

oh, no. yep. >> there goes the first ever watch. >> well, the visitors they tried to repair it, but gave up and then walked away. the museum said it's not pressing charges -- >> i would be running out. >> but said that adults are worse than children. so keep your hands away.
