up to 50% among gop voters. that's an 8% gain. trump is defying his critics and his doubters yet again. let's dig deeper into these poll numbers with our senior washington correspondent jeff zeleny. walk us through what the polls show and what we can take from the numbers. >> ana, you hit the point on the head there. voters are getting more comfortable with donald trump. i think that's exactly what we are seeing. initially it was curiosity. people were tuning in to see how the celebrity could run for president. but since then, his staying power has only grown, as you can see from the poll now compared to june. he has started to become a touch of a bit more serious of a presidential candidate. we've heard him talk about
immigration, we've heard him talk again and again about making america great again. after spending some time out there with voters, both in iowa, new hampshire and other states, i can tell you that voters want -- are liking what they hear about his -- how he's talking back to washington. he's reflecting their frustrations and they like that so far. but it's not complete positive news for donald trump in this poll. there are some signs of -- some questions about his staying power. >> right. how do you explain he has these improved favorability ratings and yet in the polls, the majority of republicans say that they have 58% favorability. >> that basically is all of the
other people supporting the other candidates except donald trump. if you add up the support, ted cruz, rand paul, carly fiorina support, all of the other republicans who are supporting these other candidates, they are worried about donald trump. but the reality is he clearly is holding steady with about 24, 25% of the republican vote. >> he had the biggest gains of all of the candidates. >> he did. >> jeff zeleny, thank you. donald trump's vow now is to repeal the 14th amendment known as birthright citizenship is creating divisions. scott walker is quick to compare his own immigration reform. he has endorsed this idea of no more birthright citizenship. and marco rubio weighed in from
the iowa state. he has a different take. listen. >> i don't agree with that. i certainly think we have to do a better job. i'm open to doing things that prevent people who deliberately come to the u.s. with the purpose of taking advantage of the 14th amendment. but i'm not in favor of repealing it. i haven't read his plan. i've only red accounts of some of them. obviously there's some idea without merit but the majority is not a workable plan that could pass congress. >> the issue of birthright citizenship is front and center in one texas county right now. let's bring in our cnn senior legal analyst jeffrey toobin. also, rafael romo. let's start with you. what is happening in this dallas county where they stopped issuing birth certificates. explain. >> it was not only dallas county but the entire state of texas has stopped issuing birth certificates to parents of some children born to undocumented parents. the affected families are those trying to use an i.d. issued by mexican consulate.
the texas state department of health and services says because consulates do not verify those that try to obtain the i.d. civil rights say it has nothing to do with security and everything to do with discrimination. this has never been an issue until the policy seemed to change all of a sudden. >> the policies seemed to change and the politicians started talking. is this illegal to hold the birth certificates of children born in the u.s.? >> not as far i can tell. the constitution has been interpreted this way for basically since the 14th amendment came into existence after the civil war. if you were born in this country, you are a citizen. it's possible, maybe, to change a law that could change
birthright citizenship. but congress hasn't done either of those and at the moment, birthright citizenship is the law of the land. so i don't know what the possible rationale is. >> advocates are not happy about this. are they trying to do anything to combat it? >> not only are they not happy but they are suing the state of texas. there was a lawsuit filed by the texas civil rights project claiming this is a discrimination case because it violates some of the things that jeff was talking about, the 14th amendment of the u.s. constitution and its equal protection clause and the department of health services said this is not discrimination at all. they sent us a list. this is a list of valid identification documents. it includes foreign passports, a visa issued by the u.s. state department and also has the mexican voter registration card and even a foreign
identification with a photo of the applicant. they say we give people choices. we just want to make sure that the documents that are given to us are secure but this is not about discrimination, the state of texas says. >> but that's so ridiculous because the identification of the parents is not relevant to the birth certificate for the baby. that's what birth certificates are. it's a birth certificate for someone born regardless of what their parents' immigration status is. so i think this county -- it's not the state. it's the county. this county is going to lose this case. but the issue is obviously very much alive and congress perhaps and certainly the states could change birthright citizenship if they wanted to amend the constitution. >> this could be a litmus test for sure. jeffrey toobin, rafael romo, thanks to both of you. a frantic manhunt is
happening right now after not one but two bombs blasted in one of asia's biggest tour cities. two attacks that police now say involved the same type of bomb. police in bangkok are hunting for this man that you see in the yellow shirt and glasses seen on this surveillance video dropping a backpack at a popular shrine just moments before an explosion tore through the heart of this city's times square. at least 22 people are now dead and more than 100 injured and less than 24 hours after the first bombing, a second blast has rocked bangkok today. this time at a river pier. joining me now for an update on the investigation, nic robertson. what can you tell us about this manhunt that is ongoing right now? >> well, what the police were saying is that there hasn't been a claim of responsibility. they still don't know who perpetrated these attacks but
they are saying that the two bombs involved on monday and again today are exactly the same. and they say that the suspect who is seen in this yellow t-shirt dropping off a backpack, they now say that he is the bomber. the bomber that put the backpack that they say he hid the backpack underneath the bench on monday. they directly are identifying him as being the bomber and that's the man that they are looking for. they are going through days and days of closed circuit television camera video footage from that area because they believe he might have been to the area before to scope it out, check it out to have a look. so -- but the police are also saying that they also believe that at least one person involved here is a thai national. the implication appears to be this man being a thai national but whether other foreigners are involved, they don't know that. the investigation is going on. at this stage they don't need outside help or at least they
are not going to ask for it. they still feel confident that they are on a track and they can pursue this man or these people involved. >> just very quickly, nic, do they believe that this individual is part of a broader group or network of sorts? >> the police aren't saying but when they say that they believe a thai national was involved but don't know if there were other thais or a foreigner, it leaves that implication open to that interpretation for sure, ana. >> nic robertson, keep us posted. thanks so much. up next, news just in involving rosie o'donnell. her 17-year-old daughter reported missing. they haven't seen her in a week. details, next. plus, tense video just released of hillary clinton meeting with members of the black lives matter movement. we'll show you the back and forth here. eight jury just getting the case in the case of a police officer being charged with killing an unarmed black man.

. we're following a developing story right now, the disappearance of rosie o'donnell's 17-year-old daughter. she sent out a tweet a short time ago linking it to a social website. she adding to the mystery here, chelsea is not officially classified as missing. so let's bring in alexandra field who is looking into this story and rocsi diaz. what is rosie saying about her daughter? >> clearly rosie is searching for her daughter even if police have not characterized her as missing. here's what rosie put up on her website. she said rosie o'donnell's 17-year-old daughter, chelsea o'donnell, has been reported
missing since august 16th. she was last seen tuesday august 11th. she left home with her therapy dog named bear. she needs medication. chelsea, like millions of people, lives with mental illness. it has been a difficult road for chelsea and her family and they just want her back safe. rosie has been doing everything she can, it seems to reach out to her 17-year-old daughter with not only that statement on her website but tweeting and trying to speak directly to chelsea asking her to come home, posting a picture of her holding a child saying, she was asking for you today, #yourfamily #call. she believes her daughter may be in the new york city area. again, she has said that her daughter is without her medication. the publicist says that this is a young woman living with some mental illness so the family is turn certainly trying to make every effort. >> and they are appealing to the
police to be on the lookout. >> the o'donnell family came forward, reached out to police on sunday to report that chelsea was missing since they had not seen her since tuesday but police say they didn't categorize her as a missing person because the family had been in contact with her at various times last week, it seems. no further update on when the family has last heard from chelsea. that's why she may be taking these very public means to reach out to her child. >> rocsi, rosie has largely been out of the limelight since she left "the view" several months ago. what's she's been up to? >> she's been keeping quiet. the reason why she left "the view" was to concentrate on her family. she was going through a very public divorce and also a health care back in 2012 she had a mild heart attack. she was putting her family and health first and trying to live a stress-free life.
from what we do know about rosie on doo'donnell, she's always be a family person. she's shared her views with the public and we saw how family oriented rosie o'donnell was. this was a real shocker because we didn't know that there may have been problems at home with rosie o'donnell and her kids and we didn't know that rosie o'donnell had a child dealing with mental illness. this is the first that we're hearing about this at all. >> she's definitely exposing a little more of that privacy in the hopes of helping to track down her 17-year-old daughter. your heart goes out to her as a parent knowing she must be heartbroken right now. rocsi diaz, our thanks to both of you if anything happens in the next couple of hours. >> up next, a white charlotte police officer facing manslaughter charges in the death of an unarmed black man. this happened before ferguson,
before baltimore, and this dash cam video could be a key piece of evidence. how is it going to influence prosecution and the jury? also, described as a frank and tense discussion, newly released video taking us inside hillary clinton's closed-door meeting with the members of black lives matter. plus, the first women complete the intense army ranger course. but will they ever see the battlefield? ♪

welcome back. at any moment now, jurors are set to deliberation in the case of a police officer who shot an unarmed black man back in 2013. it was one late september in 2013, jonathan ferrell crashed his car and went to someone's house. the woman called nine and when the officers responded, two officers arrived and ferrell is seen approaching officer kerrick. he charged 12 shots and ten of them hit and killed 24-year-old
ferrell. in the closing arguments, the prosecutor says kerrick made a bad choice. >> he had nondeadly options at his exposure. i'm not here to say he's a bad person but he made a bad choice. >> now the defense countered saying it was the shooting victim who made the wrong decision, quote, charging at the officers. listen. >> this is not about an unarmed suspect not being harmless. you heard, unarmed does not mean undangerous. the fact that no weapon was found doesn't matter. you could still be a danger to a person without having a weapon. >> let's bring in hln legal analyst, the man, joey jackson, who has been following this case
for a couple of weeks. they don't necessarily think this officer was a bad person out for anybody. but that he maybe panicked in the situation. so what do they need to prove voluntary manslaughter? >> sure. well, what happens is the prosecution has to establish unreasonableness and in terms of the action of the officer and in terms of the following of the training. that certainly was a bad choice and that bad choice was on the part of the officer because you have ferrell who was unarmed. you have ferrell who was shot, according to the prosecutor within three seconds of them getting there and, as a result of that, that officer on trial, wes kerrick, acted as an unreasonable officer under those circumstances. the defense, of course, has much to say about that and that's what they said in their closing arguments. what they are suggesting, two things that were very compelling for them. number one, they brought in an expert witness on use of force training. and that expert witness happened to be the teacher of the expert
for the state. think about that for a moment. you have a person that looks the jury in the eye and says this officer's actions were reasonable. why? because the person shot and killed was moving to get the gun of the officer and, therefore, it make it is justified. not only that, you have a battle of the experts and it's certainly not uncommon for two experts for two different things. the state expert says what they say and, of course, the defense says what they say. but, more importantly, you have the dna expert that the state brought on that says there was blood. where was the blood? on the officer. >> on the boots of the officer and on the gun of the officer. now, that's an arguable point, to be clear, because it could have been blood splatter based on an unreasonable shooting and, as the officer testified, that he was trying to grab the gun and climbing and crawling up him. it's a lot for the jury to interpret under the circumstances. >> the prosecution did have the
fight the fact that ferrell was running towards the officers, which we see in the dash cam video which was a key piece of evidence for the defense. let's watch it one more time real fast. >> get on the ground! get on the ground! >> running. [ gunfire ] >> there's a long pause before you hear the gunshots. the officer had to explain why he was running towards the officer. how important was that to the prosecution's case? >> it's very important. both sides could interpret it very differently. for the prosecution point, we see the arms and hands of ferrell. he has nothing on him at all. what's the justification of him being shot? how dare you do engage in this unreasonable action and kill someone without justification. that's the prosecutor. from the defense perspective, they are saying he's running
towards him and, as a result of that, certainly he feared for his life if he's running towards him and had no other choice but to protect himself. you'll remember, when he testified he said, i felt i was going to die that day. but now the officer who was closest, officer little, pulled out a taser, not a firearm and that's telling that the only shots fired was that who was accused of voluntary manslaughter. one pulled a taser, the other nothing at all. you tell me what was reasonable. >> the timing of the trial is interesting because the events happened before all of these recent events that have been highly publicized. >> sure. >> the ferguson shooting of michael brown, the baltimore situation leading to all of the riots with freddie gray and yet this is now on trial and there is great public scrutiny about
police actions. >> sure. >> could that influence the case? >> you know, you always hope not in that you hope that the jury evaluating the case is going to evaluate is on the merits here. but to your point, interestingly enough, an initial grand jury -- they don't decide guilt and innocence, as we know. the original grand jury said, no, and they dismissed the case. >> they said there's not probable cause. >> that's right. and another jury, a week later, based on more evidence and testimony presented by the prosecution, decided to indict. so even then you saw the interplay of perhaps other issues that are occurring here. so at the end of the day, you want that jury to focus on these circumstances and make a decision on the case here and not what happened in north carolina or anywhere else in the country. >> it's in their hands now as the deliberations are set to begin.
joey jackson, thank you. >> thank you. and you. >> thanks for coming on. up next, the video has just surfaced showing that tense meeting between hillary clinton and members of the black lives matter movement. you heard about this meeting last week but you're going to see what happened when they con fronted her behind closed doors and we'll speak live with one of the leaders of this movement about what she thought of clinton's response. plus, two women are now the first to complete the intense army ranger training course and they are set to graduate. certainly a historic accomplishment. but what's next for them? why they might not see the battlefield. stay with us. i was really surprised that i wasn't finding all of these germans in my tree. i decided to have my dna tested through ancestry dna. the big surprise was we're not german at all. 52% of my dna comes from scotland and ireland. so, i traded in my lederhosen for a kilt. ancestry has many paths to discovering your story. get started for free at ancestry.com.

disrupt and even take over several presidential cam pepaig events. we haven't seen the dialogue between those activists and the candidates until now. the group released two parts of the conversation with hillary clinton and they were not allowed into her event in new hampshire but it came afterwards. now, in the first part, clinton tells them that while she disagrees -- that while she agrees there should be calls -- what she calls a reckoning, she suggests activists come together around potential legislation and then there's a second clip that was released. i want you to listen to this next exchange. >> if you don't tell black people what we need to do and we won't tell you all what you need to do. >> i'm not telling you. i'm telling you to tell me. >> what i mean to say is, this is and has always been a white problem of violence.
there's not much that we can do to stop the violence against us. >> well, if that's -- >> i understand. i understand what you're saying. >> and respectfully -- >> respectfully, if that is your position, i will only talk to white people about how we are going to deal with the very real problems -- >> that's not what i mean. that's not what i mean. but just what you said was a form of victim blaming. you were saying what the black lives matter movement needs to do is -- >> look, i don't believe you change hearts. i believe you change laws, you change allocation of resources, you change the way systems operate. you're not going to change every heart. but at the end of the day, we can do a whole lot to change some hearts and systems and create more opportunities for people who deserve to have them, to live up to their own god given potential, to live safely without fear of violence in their own communities, to have a decent school, to have a decent
house, to have a decent future. so we can do it one of many ways and we can keep the movement going, which you have started, and through it you may actually change some hearts. but if that is all that happens, we'll be back here in ten years having the same conversation. >> let's bring in a strategic partner of the black lives matter movement. joining me now, you just heard what hillary clinton had to say and that interaction, although you weren't in the room. how did she do? >> i think it was clear how she did. she did exactly what most white people do when they are faced with direct questions from black people and what they can do to better assist with the call to action that is taking place right now. >> what do you mean? >> she was very defensive. she was very intentionally suggestive of what other people
could do as opposed to what she specifically could do. she said she doesn't believe in that and that is a majority of the time the reaction that we've seen from the progressive movement towards these calls to actions. >> i'm not so sure she said she doesn't agree with that but she did kind of qualify it saying there has to be more than that. we need real legislation or some kind of concrete steps that the politicians can take to make a difference when it comes to policy perhaps and she did send out a statement we must change hearts in america. does that help? >> i don't think that that helps. i think that what helps is to actually be receptive and what we're seeing is a lot of folks, bernie sanders, multiple campaigns after the fact. what we actually need support in
is actually being receptive of what is happening when you're directly addressing the issues that we've been lifting up consistently around black deaths in this country. >> and let's talk about that, in terms of how -- this has been approached by black matters movement when we approach the season. we have seen several instances where many of your supporters are interrupting the campaign events, taking the microphone, shouting out at the candidates. larry with comedy central had this to say about all of that. >> i agree that black lives matter but what matters matters as well. and if we're keeping it 100 and also keeping it 100 based on the demographics. ben & jerry's would be nilla please. >> do you agree? do black manners matter, also? >> i think there's
respectability that has to be challenged and i think that what happens and there is a process to take the lives of black people. >> let me pose the question this way. i think what he's getting at is a way that the movement has interrupted the events. is yelling at the candidates the best way to get your message heard and get the movement going? >> absolutely. i wouldn't have the opportunity to tell you that five black women have been murdered in this country and there's been no outrage or release from the current white house administration or any of the political candidates that are running for president right now.
>> so right now you don't support any of the candidates? >> each candidate should be held accountable. that's our political position in this current election cycle. >> and what can they do it earn your support? >> to expect to be held accountable. >> what is that accountability? so the responsibility is to the people and to the people who they are also most disconnected from. >> and you don't think the current president, president obama has done enough either? >> i think we've seen the current president really uplift narratives that were respectable, like larry wilmore has suggested but we haven't seen the president tackle black
trans issues. and there's a level of -- there's a level of disconnect that this current administration has. >> you still don't feel heard. we're glad to have you being able to share your thoughts. >> thank you. >> and that's something that the current administration could also do. we haven't heard that yet. >> a white person would say that. >> thank you for being here. glad we offered an opportunity to get the message out. >> absolutely. >> the black lives movement has gained momentum in ferguson and now as ferguson struggles to rebuild after the unrest in the past year, you can help that community. go to cnn.com/impactyourworld for ways to help. still ahead, any moment now, hillary clinton is getting ready to speak live in las vegas. her first public comment since involving her e-mail server while secretary of state. over 300 e-mails are being

military history is about to be made. two women are about to graduate from the army's exhausting, grueling elite ranger school. 19 women participated in the force's combat leadership course that teaches students how to overcome fatigue, hunger and stress during difficult combat operations and for 62 days, these ladies trained with minimal food, little sleep in the woods, mountains, swamp lands and we can't even begin to
list the things that they endured. joining me now is a senior fellow at the council foreign relations. think about women soldiers on the special ops battlefield. thank you for joining us. i appreciate it, gale. >> it is a real test of strength and agility. it's a 62-day course but these women have been in it for more than 100 days and they have not given up. and they have come out better and stronger and tougher and smarter for it and also a lot hungrier and tired from when they began. >> 94 men made it all the way
through. so these women really were keeping up with the men. what is the most challenging part of all of this? we're looking at pictures of the pushups and situps and they had to do parachute drops and get through helicopter attacks and so forth. >> that's true. 3% of the entire army has a ranger tab. this is something that is a real test and i think a lot of people wanted to show that they could do the 100 days or 62 days of tests. i think the hardest part is actually the mountain phase. a lot of students who have gone through it would say the biggest issue is endurance. because by day 62, if you go straight through, which only two-thirds of army ranger school candidates do, you are hungry, tired, losing weight and you've got 2200 calories a day and then you go to florida, the swamp
phase, as we were just visiting, the last phase, and it is hot down there and it's really exhausting and then you know you're at that physical level where you've been depleted from the other two phases. >> you really push the limits on all fronts. the question is, what is in store for the next? and i want to play what gop presidential candidate jeb bush had to say. he had an opinion about this today while speaking at the national security conference in south carolina. let's take a listen. >> so what happens now? should women go to combat? >> absolutely. if they are rangers, they are clearly qualified. these decisions are made by the military, not by the political side of washington, d.c., but if you're ranger ready, you're combat ready. >> uh-huh. >> and that's the extraordinary feet for these two women and something that they should be
proud of. >> and it was a little echoey. he said if you're ranger ready, you're combat ready. every women we have an opportunity to meet the standard and in a lot of ways it's really battlefield reality and sort of regulation even if the combat was in place, a team of women recruited, trained and deployed to go on night raids alongside rangers and seals in 2011. so this is, in many ways, the next step in opening combat roles to women and i think the key piece is it was transparent and if the standards were held the same, which is what everybody wanted from the beginning. >> why do you think it is any more dangerous for a woman on the front lines than men?
are they more vulnerable perhaps than others? >> it was about women fast roping with rangers. they get used to the idea of how to integrate women and make sense for each kfr. it's not entirely top down. what you see now is each phase and the fact that those two women met the rangers standard is what everybody is going to hang on to. that means no special exceptions were given. >> more thanks so much for joining me. >> thank you. >> up next, how did charles
manson convince his fill low followers to commit the gruesome murders? a special report coming up next. and i was going back generation after generation. you start to see documents and you see signatures of people that you've never met. i mean, you don't know these people, but you feel like you do. you get connected to them. i wish that i could get into a time machine and go back 100 years, 200 years and just meet these people. being on ancestry just made me feel like i belonged somewhere. discover your story. start searching for free now at ancestry.com. when heartburn comes creeping up on you. fight back with relief so smooth and fast. tums smoothies starts dissolving the instant it touches your tongue. and neutralizes stomach acid at the source. tum-tum-tum-tum-tums

prison dozens of times. >> he's always said he's been in prison all his life. prison is his home. >> so interesting. sara sidner, thank you for joining me now. what did you find out about charles manson and what happened that maybe we haven't heard? >> there were a couple of things. one that really struck me and that is what the father had to do. she's 8 months pregnant, begs for the life of her baby and they give her no mercy. the father had to, because unlike today's world, things were very different back then. had to go into the home several weeks after the murder and clean up his daughter's blood. and that, to me, struck me in such a way. it chills down my back. i could feel the father's pain and he has since died but it's a horrible, horrible detail that i had never heard before. >> right. >> from a friend of the family who talked about how it literally brought him to his knees in grief. >> the details inside this special report.
sara sidner, thank you so much. we look forward to it. you can watch the special report "face of evil. . the charles manson's murders" airing right here on cnn. top of the hour, i'm ana cabrera in for brooke baldwin. any moment now, hillary clinton will take the microphone in las vegas but will she talk about those e-mails? more than 300 documents we now know on her private server are coming under closer review to see if they contained any classified or secret information. let's get right to our cnn senior washington correspondent jeff zeleny. i guess it's a gamble either way. is she going to talk or ignore it? >> this is a town hall meeting in las vegas. it's an opportunity for voters to ask what is on their mind. it's an open question whether any of them will ask her about this. certainly the democrats we're talking to and in fact our producer was talking to some
voters in the line outside there. a few of the voters told him that they want to hear her address this. we'll see if any of them ask this question or not. the clinton campaign is taking on a slightly new strategy on this whole e-mail controversy. they are trying to cast it as simply an old partisan fight, similar to other clinton controversies from days gone by, trying to rally democrats behind them at this point as republicans keep asking these questions. so we'll just have to wait and see over the next hour or so if she's asked and if she answers any questions on these e-mails. >> jeff zeleny, we'll wait and see, as always. lots of twists and turns along the campaign trail. trump is widening his lead and setting the campaign agenda for the gop, donald trump standing tall as the clear leader in the race for the republican nomination. at least according to the latest orc nationwide poll taken, the first one taken since the republican candidate debate.
24% of registered republican voters, you can see here, choose trump. jeb bush comes in second. he's still 11 points back with 13%. retired neurosurgeon ben carson in third with 9% and followed by marco rubio, scott walker at 8%. trump is also doing very well among republican women. 60% have a positive response. here is a clip of erin, from "the apprentice". >> i'm tougher and smarter. >> she's so tough and so smart that she worked to the best of her ability yesterday and that's a fact. >> chris needs adult supervision 24/7. he's not a professional. he should not be working for you. he should not even be here. >> tough words, erin.
thank you so much for joining me. donald trump's favorability among gop women is up. this is after all of the criticism about some of his comments on women. you know him personally. how do you feel about trump? >> i think he's wonderful. as a boss, he treated me with nothing but respect. i saw him respecting women every single day that i worked for him. his right-hand person was a woman. treated her with respect and his daughter as well, worked within the organization and he treated her great, too. >> so what do you make of those comments about women in the past calling them slobs and pigs and really throwing insults that are d degrading to our gender? >> i think she's a pitbull when attacked and sometimes may not always say the right thing but when it comes to the presidential campaign, the numbers are what they are. he seems to be leading because people think he's a breath of fresh air in what is a broken system. the fact that he's not a career politician is really making
people look at him twice and think, wow, he's saying something that matters, he is going to help the american people and i think that's wonderful. >> would he be a good president? >> well, he was certainly a good boss and i've read all of his books and in new york city there's a place called wolman risk. the government was trying to make it beautiful. he picked up the project and got it done quicker and under budget. that's one example of good leadership. >> he could be a good leader but may not make a good president. does he have your vote? >> you know, november is a little bit far away but so far so good. i'm with the american people and he's leading so i'm going to follow. >> so you're on the trump bandwagon? >> i'm on the trump bandwagon. i think he was a great boss and great leader. he's very intelligent. he certainly knows how to manage as a ceo. >> i want you to pull back the curtain for us. given your experience on "the
apprentice," what kind of insight can you provide on how trump works behind the scenes? for example, is he willing to take advice? >> he is. he loves working and talking with really smart people. what i knew, as soon as he got in the room, say something quickly, say something intelligent and say it concisely. because he does not want to be bogged down with rhetoric. he's about being smart and just loving getting everything done and making people happy. >> he has gotten a little bit of flack for his comments about how he is creating his foreign policy by watching the sunday shows and does he go out and seek others' opinions? i saw him do that. for example, on every single task that we did on "the apprentice," we worked with a different fortune 500 company and i could see them having discourse and he really asked for their opinion on every single situation.
so i can see him taking the advice of others. however, i do think that you need to treat him with kid gloves sometimes. you can't come after him with visceral -- you have to be careful but that's okay. i think anyone in a position of power just knowing how to handle that and how to respect them and work with them is a part of doing business. >> can you see him having conversations and working diplomacy with somebody like putin? >> wow. i don't know vladimir putin but i hope that he will think before he speaks and do the best that he can to take care of the american people. he takes great care of his employees. he took great care of me. i wouldn't be in the position i am in if it weren't for donald trump. >> i'd like to get your reaction on a headline. that super model heidi klum is
no longer a ten. take a look. she responded. i don't know, erin, if heidi isn't a 10 anymore, the rest of the gender is in trouble. >> i think she's an 11. i really think she's an 11. maybe they have a personal inside relationship where they are joking around or maybe he's just trying to get attention. i have a 2-year-old. sometimes he does things just to get a reaction. maybe sometimes we all just act out a little bit. >> erin, thank you so much for your time today. i appreciate it. >> thank you for having me. president obama's push for an iran deal just hit another speed bump. democratic senator robert menendez says he will not support it joining democratic senator chuck schumer. that is not necessarily a surprise to anybody but senior reporter steven clawson is
joining us. he's been following this story. why is he going against the president and planning to vote against the deal? >> senator menendez says this deal would delay the inevitable and end up, in the years to come, allowing to iran to get deals in the nuclear bomb and sanctions relief will give it about $150 billion to pursue terrorism throughout the middle east. and to give a public speech to rally a position to this deal, it was very personal. there seemed to be a number of lines in there that were directed towards the president himself. he said that the deal was based on hope and that hope is not a national security strategy and he said that if iran does get the bomb in the years to come, it will not be his name. senator menendez's name on that bomb, implying it would be president obama's name, it would
be associated with that weapon. >> how are the numbers stacking up? in favor of the president or against? we know that the majority certainly run by republicans are voting against. but does the president have enough support to basically prevent a veto? or to uphold his veto of theirs? >> right. that's the question. and the intense debate is going to be over democratic senators and democratic lawmakers in the house. at this point, two senior citizens, senator menendez and schumer, have publicly come out against this deal. it's not clear, though, that the support for the deal is the senate or the house. most people look at this and think that as it stands now, the president probably does have enough support for his veto not to be overridden. but there's going to be a five-week period next month when the lawmakers come back from their summer recess. it's going to be very intense. there's a lot of money and pressure being on that, on
senators to vote against this deal and there's going to be some real fireworks in washington in the next month over this. >> steven staying on top of it for us, thank you. up next, two attacks, two days, exploding in a tourist hub and the search is under way right now for this man. who is he? up next, also, news just in involving rosie o'donnell. her 17-year-old daughter reported missing. they haven't seen her in about a week. we'll have more details, next. and in one of america's most elite prep school, hiding a sex competition that includes scoreboards for virginity, rape?

police in bangkok are hunting for this man seen on surveillance video who they say they are very sure dropped a backpack at a popular shrine and then ducked for cover under a bench. just moments before, an explosion tore through the heart of the city. at least 22 people were killed and more than 100 hurt and less than 24 hours after the first bombing, a second blast has rocked bangkok today. police believe someone on a motorbike threw that bomb towards a pier. no one was injured the second time but they believe it's the same type of bomb used in the first attack. back here in the u.s., wildfires raging out west so ferocious. the u.s. military is joining the front lines. there are already 25,000 firefighters working across ten states. some of these firefighters from
other countries and now 200 active duty soldiers are lending a hand. this hasn't happened since 2006. officials are monitoring close to 100 wildfires and more than 100 million acres have been scorched. let's get to cnn's jennifer gray watching these weather conditions out west for us. it sounds awful. >> it really is. the fires are advancing so fast, the firefighters can't keep up and we have very hot air temperatures and dry conditions and also have the wind that is all working against them in this fight for trying to put out these wildfires. the heat will continue and the winds are going to play a huge factor over the next couple of days. they can carry the small embers that is not currently burning and, boom, you have another fire that quickly. and so that's one thing that is going to be really working against them. these winds across the pacific northwest could be gusting up to 40 miles per hour by the time we
get into thursday and that's going to advance those fires very quickly. we also have very dry air in place. that's also going to make the grass, the trees that are already very dry, it's just going to make them drier. that is going to allow fuel for the temperatures. 90 degrees in seattle. on wednesday, they should be in the mid-70s. temperatures in the triple digits once we get into northern california. we have a lot of fires that we're watching and i want to show you on the map because you can get a better idea where all of these are. look at the concentration near idaho and boise. 82 active large fires. 1 million acres currently burning west of the rockies. we look at this as a long-term scenario waus because this isn't going to be put out overnight. unfortunately, we could see warm and dry conditions as we move forward into the winter months in the northwest. however, we could get help from the el nino in california.
ana? >> it's not good. jennifer gray, thanks so much. up next, the fda deciding today if it's going to okay the drug being called female viagra. the possible problems with this drug and how it works, next. but your stellar notebook gives hanyou the gumptionlc. to reach for the sky. that's that new gear feeling. this week, these office depot brand notebooks just one cent. office depot officemax. gear up for school. gear up for great.

first to you, dr. cheatam, how does this work? >> it's being marketed as the female viagra but it's working on very different receptors in the brain and it's working on a receptacle. in 1991 went we discovered viagra, it was marketed initially as a medication for blood pressure but the man who took this for blood had great erections. >> a side effect. >> this drug for women was initially developed as an antidepressant in 2006 and found that women in the study, they had improved sexual desire. in the women only, actually. >> doctor, should it be approved? >> well, we've been looking for a pill for women to help with their sexual desire because i've seen so many women for so many years because they are in so
much pain emotionally that they can't get excited. >> it's important in a relationship. >> well, exactly. and that's exactly the point, that it's the intimacy and the love that really matters to women. not taking the pill that is going to affect their brain and it's really difficult and dangerous and i think it's a medication that is affecting the brain. and it's pushing blood there so the man has an erection. this is pushing chemicals in the brain and that concerns me. it's related to depression and treatment for depression so what if you're not depressed and you have to have so importantly a psychiatric evaluation for your total medical condition. >> what about those risks? >> it's not a one size fits all. we know that the definition of
female sex dysfunction is no desire for six months or more, that it's causing distress, as judy has emphasized, and there are no relationship factors, no hormonal factors. >> what about side effects? >> i think the side effects that have been shown in studies are overall mild side effects, central nervous side effects are nausea, fatigue in some people, difficulty sleeping, insomnia, dizziness. these are very nonspecific symptoms but most women are not stopping the drug. >> i think it's very important that we don't rush out, if this gets approved and say, i want to be the female stud. i'm going to be so much more attractive. i want women to feel already confident, already good about
where they are. we've been spending so many years with sex therapists saying who you are, if you have a better relationship and increase your self-esteem and you feel that you are loved and boughtful, that your sex desire is okay, work on the psychological things before you start working on -- >> i have to say, too, because i'm kind of skeptical, is this about money and pharmaceutical industry making big bucks or is this really a medical breakthrough? >> the first thing you have to remember is that many, many women are taking pills for antidepression already and they are trying to fight depression already and here's another pill that can fex another problem. if you're not careful, you can be taking so many pills. you need to look at what you put in your diet, your lifestyle, your relationship. this is not a quick fix. >> ladies, thank you. you've been warned out there. >> take it with caution. thank you to both of you.

way right now. this student is accused of sexually assaulting a schoolmate in may of last year. she was just 15 years old. the associated press cites that he did it for the so-called senior salute, a competition for seniors to have as many as sexual encounters with underclass girls as possible. the opening statements today reflect that he did not have consent. >> shortly after the assault, jesse messaged him asking him, did you wear a condom? you'll see his responses that he sends back, are you on the pill? i think you're okay. you should be good. i put it on halfway through. referring to the condom. >> now, his attorney, says there was not rape because there was no sex. also here, phillip holloway and
hln's nancy grace. you said there's no way this defendant can get a fair trial. why? >> ana, what they are doing is bringing in current and former students who are going to talk about this culture that they are calling it a sexual deef yent culture and in america we don't base a trial on their character. this guy could be the most voracious sexual animal on campus but unless he actually forced her to have sexual intercourse, he's not guilty of a crime. they are trying to condemn him for this culture that exists on this campus. >> nancy, do you agree that testimony shouldn't be allowed for those who can talk about the so-called senior salute that some of the members go through? >> well, the law is as follows.
while the defense attorney is correct, you can't base it on reputation alone, i agree. however, if the motivation behind the alleged rape is the senior salute game, essentially a contest that the men at the school where they take their virginity -- >> taking somebody's virginity doesn't mean it's rape. it has to be done without consent. >> i don't believe that was the question, sir. and i'd like the chance to finish. what you're asking me is whether other students would be able to testify to this game called the senior salute. i'd like to finish. repeat. to explain the game someone may come in and explain that to the jurors if it's proven that that is what the defendant was doing, i'm much more concerned not so much with the game as to the actual evidence showing rape.
and i believe that will be shown by a nurse testimony that there were lacerations in this teen girl's vagina showing recent sex activity. now, if he were arguing this was consensual, that wouldn't count for so much. but the fact that he's claiming there was no sex at all, and then the girl shows up with lacerations in her vaginal area, that, to me, disapproves his defense totally. >> how do you defend against that kind of evidence, phillip? >> if there's a sexual l laceration, it's going to have to be an expert to talk about that caused by nonconsensual activity by these two people. they are bringing informer and current students who weren't there. they weren't there and don't know what happened. to say that a laceration alone or one injury was a result of a rape is absolutely putting the
cart way before the horse. >> second verse the same as the first. forget about all of the other students. you sound like a broken record. i'm talking about the alleged victim that will testify to what happened. not only that, there are ten counts to this indictment. three of them being aggravated sexual battery. i.e., rape. they performed a search warrant on his computer and if he lured her to the location of the incident under false pretenses and then ended up raping her, there's more jail time to be had. >> phillip, you talked about the culture. and that that should not be necessarily used against him in this case, the overall culture at this school, allegedly. st. paul did release a statement. i want to read that for you. "current allegations about our culture are not emblematic of our school or values or rules or
the people who represent our student body, alumni, faculty and staff." beyond that, when you look at the defendant himself, we're learning that he was supposed to go to harvard. he was actually going to study religion. do you think that some of that information is going to come up in this trial, phillip, to sort of build up his character? >> i do. because a person's good character, on the other hand, can sometimes be used as a defense. the things we saw in these opening statements, that's not evidence. the judge will tell the jury that. it's way too early to start calling somebody a rapist just because the prosecution says so in opening statements. the jury is going to have to decide who is the winner of this swearing contest, ana, between the defendant and his accuser. that's what it is going to come down to. the actual evidence from the people who were there and who the jury believes. >> nancy, final thoughts? >> you know, i keep hearing the
same defense attorney say the same thing over and over and over. that's because he's right in one aspect. this is not about the culture at the school. he's wrong in this count. it's about what this victim says and what the forensics show. that's what this is about. >> and on that note, phillip holloway and nancy grace, thank you to both of you. you can watch nancy grace each night at 8:00 p.m. on our sister station hln. up next, a police pulled over a car and realized a baby was being delivered in the car. that's up next.

my psoriatic arthritis i'm caused joint pain.o golfer. just like my moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis. and i was worried about joint damage. my doctor said joint pain from ra can be a sign of existing joint damage that could only get worse. he prescribed enbrel to help relieve pain and help stop further damage. enbrel may lower your ability to fight infections. serious, sometimes fatal, events including infections, tuberculosis, lymphoma, other cancers, nervous system and blood disorders and allergic reactions have occurred. tell your doctor if you've been someplace where fungal infections are common, or if you're prone to infections, have cuts or sores, have had hepatitis b, have been treated for heart failure, or if you have persistent fever, bruising, bleeding, or paleness. don't start enbrel if you have an infection like the flu. joint pain and damage... can go side by side. ask how enbrel can help relieve joint pain and help stop joint damage. enbrel, the number one rheumatologist-prescribed biologic.
babies, of course, are delivered every day but not usually in this secircumstance. watch what happened after an officer pulled over a couple who were speeding and he gets to the window only to find out that the mom is in labor much watch. >> there's an ambulance on the way right now. okay? we'll get you there faster and it's safer. okay? >> the baby's out! the baby's out! [ crying ]
she's not breathing! please help me! we need to get it out of her mom. please! there you go. [ crying ] there you go. >> not even enough time for the ambulance to get there. that baby girl was coming. you saw there at the end, one of the officers had to help clear the infant's airway. she wasn't breathing initially. and soon a very relieved new dad and mom shook hands with the officer. here's a picture of that dad with his little girl, mom and baby are said to be doing just fine. whoo! dramatic. let's talk rosie o'donnell. she's turning to twitter now to try to find her 17-year-old daughter. she hasn't been seen in a week. o'donnell sent out a tweet a short time ago linking to her official website and in this statement she says her daughter
chelsea went missing from their new york time about a week ago with their pet dog and is in need of medication. cnn just reached out to local police. she was not initially classified as missing and they have since changed that. let's bring in alexandra field, chris witherspoon of theg thegrio.com. >> police are now saying that it appears that the 17-year-old ran away but it's officially a missing person's case. the goal is to bring the 17-year-old home to her family. rosie o'donnell using her public platform to reach the public and ultimately trying to reach her daughter. she wrote on her website, "rosie o'donnell's 17-year-old daughter chelsea o'donnell was reported missing. the police have been looking for her in the rockland county area since sunday august 16th. she was last seen tuesday august 11. she left home with her therapy
dog named bear. chelsea stopped taking her medication and is in need of medical attention." rosie o'donnell's publicist sent out a statement saying, "chelsly, like millions of people, lives with mental illness. it has been a difficult road and they just want her back safe." she's been trying to contact or connect with her daughter in some way saying that she believes her daughter might be in the new york city area asking people to really be on the lookout for both chelsea and this dog that was with her. the time that she was reported missing on sunday she did use an unknown cell phone to make some kind of contact with the family members. >> chris, bigger picture here, we hear this statement revealing that rosie's daughter has mental illness. did we know anything about that prior to this incident? >> i think we kind of knew that she was going home to deal with
personal issues at home so this is kind of the missing link here. we realize she was dealing with a daughter who had mental illness. it's great to see rosie o'donnell to come out here and be open and allow her fans and followers be the eyes and ears on the ground to find where this girl is. >> we hope that happens soon. alexandra field and chris witherspoon, thank you. hillary clinton is getting ready to speak live in las vegas at a packed gym. moreton downey jr. wags in your face. next, we're talking to the man who produced his show and his bodyguard about what it was like to work with this guy. hey terry stop! they have a special!
