secretaries of state henry kissinger, madelyn albright, george schultz, among 20 other experts and military leaders who have called on congress to stop the proposal to deter the flow of syrian and iraqi refugees into the united states. this hits home for you in many ways. you opened your home -- or assisted in a great way youry translator in iraq and your calling on other members of congress to really re-evaluate some of what we've heard in the last week or so. >> that's right. the letter is spot-on. it's not only about upholding our values, which is critically important. we have always been a destination for people who are suffering from oppression across the globe. we are a destination today for the very enemies of isis, the very people that isis is attacking. we've got to uphold our values. but it also is critical to our national security that we show the world that american values apply to all. american values apply to muslims and syrians, the same way they do to everybody else and us here at home. we spoke this morning on the armed services committee with david ignatius, an ex

2010, when he was running for the united states senate, floated that he would be open to the george w. bush idea at the time of partially privatizing social security. that's a big no-no here in florida. i think trump has a stronger position, and real quick, on the points michael steele was making, i think marco rubio is trying to appeal, obviously to jewish voters, but his message is more about evangelical christians. about 7 in 10 voters are democrats. there aren't many republican jewish voters in florida. what he's trying to do is sort of leap frog over that message and combine conservative younger voters who may not have voted yet and evangelicals. >> that would be leap frogging over not only trump but ted cruz, who still is trying to somehow get a big victory with evangelical christian vote. thank you both for joining me. have a good friday. we'll see you on the road, taking the show to cleveland after this. thank you. we'll be right back. it's a fact. kind of like bill splitting equals nitpicking. but i only had a salad. it was a buffalo chicken salad. salad. i am totally blind.

big margins in more counties around the state like this one. duval county. george bush won in 2004 and barack obama by a smaller margin in 2008. and 2012. so far, the african-american vote which we talked about and a large population here about 25% have already voted here. it's about 30% of the state that african-americans represent. so that's an important vote that the democrats need. donald trump needs his supporters out as well. it was effectively even yesterday between republicans and democrats. so that's exactly what he's here to do to whip up support among the people behind him. >> we understand senator ted cruz will be his site campaigning with governor mike pence in iowa. that's per a campaign ad. >> the governor, mike pence, supported ted cruz. although it wasn't the kind of endorsement for ted cruz. now cruz and mike pence and donald trump share a ticket and ted cruz is going to do everything he can. obviously given what happened at the convention, he's in a better position to support mike pence. but the two of them will be together. the hope is that cruz can bring on boa

in the constitution about what the presidential spouse should do. i think we can blame george washington for starting this attention to the first lady, because here we're sitting in new york, not too far from where he brought martha over on the presidential barge to a 13 gun salute and so forth. people paid a lot of attention to the wife from that point on. but there's no rule. you can play it any way you want. as an activist first lady, those ones who did campaign for their husbands, help in making decisions, help in negotiating with coressmen to get certain laws passed and so forth, it's said that the job of first lady was elevated to that of associate president. so i don't think we're going to see that with the trump presidency. but it has been that strong in the past. >> staffing-wise, how does it work if she's here in new york? would you expect her staff, her secretary, her assistants to remain in washington, d.c.? >> the first lady's side of the white house is the east wing. it's huge. i mean, she -- most first ladies have 25 full-time staff, some of them borrow from age

such a partisan issue? republican president george w. bush once said i believe in background checks at gun shows or anywhere to make sure that guns don't get into the hands of people that shouldn't have them. senator john mccain introduced a bipartisan measure to address the gun show loophole, saying we need this amendment because criminals and terrorists have exploited and are exploiting this very obvious loophole in our gun safety laws. even the nra used to support expanded background checks. and by the way, most of its members still do. most republican voters still do. how did we get here? how did we get to the place where people think requiring a comprehensive background check means taking away people's guns? each time this comes up, we are fed the excuse that common sense reforms like background checks might not have stopped the last massacre or the one before that, or the one before that. so why bother trying? i reject that thinking.

congress, paul comes from a district that voted for clinton, george bush in 2000 and barack obama in 2008. that is part of a vanishing breed of members in a more and more divided congress. and because of that, paul understands what it takes, even as a conservative, to work with people like maxine waters, to work with people like charlie rangel and others, and nancy pelosi. i did find it interesting, one bit of theatrics, though, he did not go in for the full hug and kiss with nancy pelosi. boehner always did that. that was the only sort of a holding back. i don't know what the 1970s song would be for that, but he did -- he did seem to hold back from that. but i think palm wiul will be f more effective in this position than most of his predecessors. >> i intentionally did not mention b.b. king who put out "the thrill is gone" in 1970 trying to keep it positive here today. >> not yet, not yet. >> but good points to end on from the only member of our merry band to actually serve in that chamber. and somewhere the general manager of tortilla coast is just marveling at his good fortune today.

ballot access and voting integrity initiative under george bush. the problem with some of the way donald trump is communicating here still on twitter but these are the president's words is he's taking something that could be okay, a review of voting, and making it sound as if it supports falsehoods and lies that he has pushed before. bottom line, the only thing they found wrong is voter registration because when people die and move, sometimes that isn't updated on the rolls. he's used this to suggest that paperwork might mean people are voting in person, 3 million to 5 million, and there's no evidence of that. we're going to look at the briefing this afternoon and the justice department to clear up some of the falsehoods that president trump is putting out. >> thank you, ari. >>> joining me you, congressman james clyburn, the assistant democratic leader in the house. thank you for your time this morning. >> thank you very much for having me. >> i have a release that includes you and congressman cummings, brady as well, demanding proof of unsubstantiated republican claims of voter fraud.
