tv   At This Hour With Berman and Bolduan  CNN  August 21, 2015 8:00am-9:01am PDT

8:00 am
skinny dipping in this pool would be very exposing. >> you know, you're ten floors up, so you have a little protection. >> we'd look like tadpoles up there in this human aquarium in the sky. jeanne moos -- where does the lifeguard sit -- cnn -- >> he'll sit on the edge. >> new york. >> thank you for joining me. "at this hour with berman and bolduan" starts now. on the brink of war. the most unpredictable dictator in the world telling his troops get ready for the worst as north and south korea face off. a city on edge. his death sparked violent protests this week in st. louis and now we're hearing the black teenager killed by police was shot in the back. we'll take you there live. and one is a socialist, the other is, well, donald trump, and today they could both see record crowds as voters speak out against the establishment.
8:01 am
hello. i'm pamela brown in for john and kate. great to have you along with us on this friday. and we begin with the most erratic, eccentric dictator in the world now preparing for war. north korean leader kim jong-un has ordered his front line forces to move into war footing after an exchange of fire with south korea across their heavily fortified border. the dictator has given the south until 4:00 a.m. eastern time to stop blasting anti-pyongyang p propaganda over loud speakers at the border. officials are carefully monitoring this escalation. let's bring in cnn's kathy novak right near the dm zsmth, tz, an chau, a deputy negotiator at six-party talks in 2006. kathy, i'm going to start with you. kim jong-un has issued threats in the past, so why is this such
8:02 am
a big deal now? >> it's true, pamela, he has issued threats in the past and it has come at around this time of year. that's when the annual exercises take place between the united states and south korea when they hold joint military drills. we know that makes kim jong-un very angry and we saw threats coming out of pyongyang over the weekend to attack the u.s. mainland because of the drills. what seems to be different this time is it's happening tame as another thing that is angering kim jong-un and that's the presumption of psychological warfare for the first time in ten years from south korea. as you mentioned, associatisouts using large loud speakers along the border with north korea to broadcast anti-regime messages. remember, this is north korea. kim jong-un likes to control all the messages that go into the ears of his own citizens. it's a place where saying anything bad about the leader is tantamount to treason. they see the resumption of the psychological warfare as an act
8:03 am
of war. it has given south korea until tomorrow to stop or says it will take military action. but south korea is not stepping back. it says it will continue these propaganda messages, and it is preparing for the high possibility that north korea will attack the speakers and target them when this deadline approaches tomorrow and here is what south korea has to say. if north korea continues on provoking our military as we have already warned, we'll respond sternly and end the evil provocation of north korea. south korea is in the process of working closely with the united states, and we know that the united states is monitoring the situation closely, pamela. >> thank you so much, kathy. victor, i want to go to you. we heard in kathy's report there that north korea is threatening military action if south korea doesn't shut down the loud speakers by 4:00 a.m. eastern time. do you buy it this time? we have heard threats before from kim jong-un against south
8:04 am
korea or do you actually think this time could be real? >> well, i do think the situation is framed right now in such a way that neither side can back down. it's a classic game of chicken. something else that's different this time is that the north koreans sent a direct message to the south korean national security adviser delivering this ultimatum. my understanding is that they haven't done that sort of thing in the past. they've certainly passed messages between militaries, and, you know, again, the content of the broadcasting i think is quite -- the north koreans are quite sensitive to that because it's directly attacking the leadership of north korea and this leadership is insecure and unstable. >> and like you said, it's doubtful that south korea will back down. we know that the u.s. is monitoring the situation closely. what does this mean for the u.s. if a war does break out? >> well, certainly nobody wants to see a war break out, and the united states and south korea have created what's called a
8:05 am
counter provocations plan. there's always been a plan to deal with a second north korean invasion, but over the past decades the north korean belligerence has largely been in the form of actions short of all-out war, sort of gray zone areas. so the u.s. has created plans to deal with these sort of things. when the land mine blast occurred, the nonkinetic response were the resumption of these loud speaker broadcasts. so that was meant to be sort of, i think, a moderated response to what was an action by the north koreans clearly in violation of the armistice. so from a u.s. perspective obviously we don't want to see the situation escalate. at the same time we don't want the north koreans to feel like they can act with impunity along the dmz. >> and let's talk about kim jong-un, the leader in north korea. he's been known to be predi predictab
8:06 am
predictable. and is part of this just conflict theater, a way to gain international attention versus actually wanting to be in the middle of conflict? >> well, i think it's more -- i think that's right, but i also think it's more a direct reflection of the difficulties he's having in running the country. he's still purging and executing high-level officials four years into his time in office, which is not the sign of a good power transition. north korean society is becoming very slowly more and more open. outside information is getting in. and the regime is not able to govern effectively. there's still a terrible food problem, the economy is a mess, and this leader basically spends all of his money on building amusement parks and ski resorts and nuclear weapons and not taking care of the people. so overall it's not a good situation, and the regime i think knows that the leadership is having trouble, and that's why they're so hypersensitive to these sorts of broadcasts that
8:07 am
directly attack the legitimacy of the regime. >> victor shaw, thank you so much. we appreciate it. and now let's turn to politics and the 2016 presidential race and two men who aren't exactly mainstream candidates but are drawing crowds like rock stars. democrat bernie sanders is making his first swing through south carolina as a candidate. his rally in greenville is getting started right now and he'll be in columbia later today. and a rally tomorrow in charleston has been moved to a bigger venue to accommodate more people. and then, of course, there's donald trump. there was so much interest in his rally tonight in mobile, alabama, that organizers moved it to the 40,000-seat college football stadium where the go daddy bowl is played. so let's bring in cnn's athena jones for more on this. she's following the latest campaign news from manchester, new hampshire. athena, are we expecting to see the same crowds for sanders in south carolina as we have been
8:08 am
seeing elsewhere like iowa? >> reporter: probably not. this is not the most liberal state. i can't see the pictures you are able to see, but "the washington post" is reporting that as of yesterday at least about 2,100 people had rsvp'd for this event going on right now. south carolina not a liberal state. they have only one democrat in their entire congressional delegation. but as you mentioned, sanders right now holds the record for the largest political crowd of the 2016 presidential contest so far. he drew about 28,000 people to a rally in portland, oregon, just a couple weeks ago. that was an nba arena. now, of course, if donald trump's rally tonight gets as many people as they're expecting, he will set a new record. i believe the latest update we have from his campaign is that 42,000 people have rsvp'd for tonight's event. so that will be quite a big one. pamela? >> let's talk about donald trump and jeb bush because the latest polls show that trump is leading bush in florida. of course, that is a state that bush governed for eight years
8:09 am
and now he's getting some help from his family, is that right? >> that's right, and this is really interesting. i asked bush yesterday why it is that trump is leading him in his own state of florida in the new quinnipiac poll, and he said, look, i'm beating hillary clinton, trump is losing to her. there you have it. that's not true, trump is leading clinton in that poll in florida as well. he's now pulling out some of the big guns in his family. he's getting some fund-raising help from his brother, george w. bush. he sent an e-mail blast telling them jeb has a tough road ahead but with his strength and their support, he will succeed. later this fall george w. bush and george h.w. bush are going to be holding a fund-raiser, hosting a fund-raiser for jeb bush in houston. that's in october. so he's got some big fund-raising events on the calendar. pamela? >> athena jones, thank you so much for wrapping it up for us.
8:10 am
we appreciate it. a fiery debate erupting over the term anchor babies. jeb bush and donald trump unapologetic for using it. others calling it a racist slur. we'll debate. plus a city on edge. his death sparked violent protests this week in st. louis and now we're hearing the teen killed by police was shot in the back. we'll take you there live. and moments from now history in the making. for the first time ever, two women will become army ranger graduates after one of the most grueling boot camps that exist. we'll be right back. ♪ ♪ if you can't stand the heat, get off the test track. get the mercedes-benz you've been burning for at the summer event, going on now at your authorized mercedes-benz dealer.

8:14 am
confirming to cnn police shot a black teenager in the back killing him. an autopsy shows the 18-year-old died from that wound. police say he pointed a gun at officers. st. louis, of course, is just a few miles from ferguson where accusations of police brutality have caused a ripple effect throughout the country. let's bring in now cnn's ryan young in st. louis. ryan, what more do we know about the circumstances surrounding this young man's death? >> reporter: well, people are very agitated about this. the 18-year-old was apparently in the neighborhood visiting friends. in fact, we just last hour talked to his attorney, and they are saying that he was not at the house where police were serving the search warrant. they also believe that witnesses say he did not have a gun when he started running from the officers. he says they were two plainclothes officers, they didn't know they were police officers. people in the neighborhood are saying they didn't even hear them scream police. so after this happened, the neighborhood gets very upset and, in fact, they have a small riot that night where people were throwing rocks and bottles
8:15 am
and setting cars on fire. >> so, ryan -- >> reporter: in fact -- okay. the only reason -- antonio french has joined us who is the councilman from this area. he just walked up so we wanted to fit this in. obviously people were upset again that something has happened in the neighborhoods. >> right. >> reporter: what are you telling people right now in terms of staying calm especially with the new information? >> it's important we be patient. there's an investigation going on. there will be a second investigation by the circuit attorney and this is st. louis city, so you have folks on the city council who do have the backs of the community and we'll make sure we'll get to the truth. it just takes a little time. >> reporter: we talked to his lawyer today. he says he did not have a gun. he was shot in the back. when people in the neighborhood hear this, it may not go well tonight when people get this extra bit of information. >> it's a volatile situation we have right now. still a lot of emotion and people are still very upset other the events of the last year, and so, you know, it's important for us to maintain calm and for folks to know this
8:16 am
is a different situation. in this jurisdiction we have people who have your back. >> reporter: but is this world filtering to the neighborhoods? i can tell there are people who are angry and they hear these details and they may not want to hear from police headquarters anymore. who is standing in between police officers and the community at this point? >> well, we are. so i'm out there in the evenings along with other folks, other aldermen, members of the clergy and we're trying to keep folks calm. what we know is we want to fix this situation. we don't want to see these young people keep getting killed, and so it's going to take some change, but the atmosphere of violence does not allow for the kind of conversations we need to have. so violence is not helpinged situation. >> i think i have to mention this, there's a fact that a 9-year-old girl was killed in ferguson and people are wondering why there was no marching for that. >> there was marching. there was a huge event yesterday, and actually it was a beautiful event because you had
8:17 am
both protesters, members of the ferguson police department, even the mayor. these are folks who are politically at each other's -- at odds, but they came together to support that family in this difficult time. so there has been beautiful events. unfortunately, they don't get the same media coverage as violence and fires, but there have been a lot of activities surrounding the violence and the normal violence in communities. >> how hurt were you when you saw the fires in this community and the fact that now you have people throwing rocks at police officers. you have a conversation that completely changes from healing to all of a sudden wounds are reopened again. >> yeah. it was disappointing. we find ourselves one step forward, two steps back it seems sometimes. so, you know, we just have to keep moving forward and luckily the violence that happened two nights ago did not carry over to last night and hopefully the new details that came out today will not erupt into violence tonight and we'll be out there tonight to make sure it doesn't. >> reporter: the idea when they hear he was shot in the back, when you hear the family and
8:18 am
some witnesses contend he did not have a gun, what can you say to them right now so that tonight can maybe be peaceful? >> when i was out there hours after the young man was killed, i heard a lot of different stories, so we don't know exactly what happened, and so we just have to take everything with a grain of salt coming out from the police department and from others and let the investigation carry its course. i think the family has a couple good attorneys that will try to get their side out, but it's important that folks understand that the atmosphere of violence does not help move this issue forward. >> reporter: i thank you for running over here and getting on with us. he walked up right as we were getting ready to do this. everyone is worried about tonight, especially with this new information out, the fact there is that autopsy report that's been released where the yurng man was shot in the back. the family's attorney is contending the young man could not have run as far as police saying that he did, so there will be a lot of conversations within this community over the next 24 hours. >> yeah, and a lot of unanswered questions right now. ryan young, antonio french.

thank you so much. a deputy is in critical condition after being shot in the line of duty. the officer was trying to make an arrest last night. police say they were involved in a prostitution investigation when a man at the scene ambushed them. police returned fire shooting the suspect who is now in stable condition. some say it's a racist slur. others like donald trump and jeb bush say, sorry, we're saying anchor babies. we're going to debate this coming up. plus, police say two men beat up a homeless man because they are inspired by donald trump. now the billionaire is responding. so you think this chip is nothing to worry about? well at safelite we know sooner or later, every chip will crack.

it has become a hot button term in the presidential race, anchor babies. it's used to describe children born to noncitizens of the u.s. where citizenship is a birthright and seen as a way for other family members to secure lel residency, but many americans find the term offensive, especially latinos and donald trump is catching flack for using it. now jeb bush is, too. >> do you regret using the term anchor babies yesterday on the radio. >> no i didn't. i don't. do you have a better term? >> i don't. >> you have a better term, i'll use it. don't yell at me behind my ear though. give me another word. >> trump tweeted this, quote,
8:24 am
jeb bush signed memos saying not to use the term anchor babies, offensive. now he wants to use it because i use it. stay true to yourself. one gop candidate not using it, senator marco rubio. he said he calls these children human beings. cnn political commentators ben ferguson and maria cardona join us now to talk about it. trump was referring to bush's advisory role for a hispanic leadership group. the group advised conservatives not to use this term. it's not clear if bush signed any memo as trump claims. ben, in your opinion, does bush need to worry about alienating hispanic voters by using this term? >> i think he needs to worry more about being honest with what's really going on, and this is a political correctness gone to crazy land. there is such a thing as an anchor baby. it's been around for a long time. it's been okay to say. then you have people who say if you use it you're racist.
8:25 am
the fact of the matter is there are people who come into this country from not just mexico, all over the world, who come here specifically to have a child that will anchor them in this country. that seems to be what he was implying yesterday, but don't flip-flop on it. if you're going to say it, his biggest liability now is somehow backing away from it, and i think donald trump actually, this is why people like him. he's not afraid to have the blunt conversation. we do have a problem with anchor babies. it doesn't mean it's negative towards the child. it's negative, if anything, towards the parent that is doing it and manipulating the system to their advantage on purpose. >> maria, i see you shaking your head there. set the stage for us though in the latino community. what is their reaction to this? why is this term so offensive? >> this term is incredibly offensive, pam, because it actually legitimizes the dehumanization of our most vulnerable, of our most innocent, of children who, by the way, per the constitution are u.s. citizens, and, in fact,
8:26 am
people who use this term and who use it in a derogatory manner don't necessarily differentiate between the children of legal residents here, legal citizens even in some cases, and those who are undocumented. and that is why blanketing the term and using it as such is so offensive. if you want to talk about the policy, if you want to talk about what ben referred to in terms of, you know, some people coming here to have children specifically so that they can be born u.s. citizens, then describe it, describe it as such. don't use the term anchor babies because you have a lot of latinos -- >> anchor baby -- >> you have a lot of latino -- >> anchor baby describes that. >> let me finish. you have a lot of latinos who have been referred to as having anchor babies who are u.s. citizens. for example, pam, i am an immigrant. i was not born in this country. i have two u.s. citizen kids.
8:27 am
are they anchor babies? in the eyes of some in the extreme right wing, yes, they would be, and that is not the way to have this conversation. >> everybody that uses the term -- i wish, by the way, that you had this much compassion for standing up for children when it comes to issues like abortion but you call them something else. now all of a sudden we have to stand up for this child who can't speak for themselves. this is again political correctness gone crazy. there are people, and you don't want to deal with the reality, that don't look at the child as anything but their way to get into this country and their way to stay in this country. there are people that abuse the system. it doesn't have to do with the child. and no one -- i'm not debating the fact that if you're born in america, you're an american citizen. i have been saying that for as long as we've had this discussion on the issue. >> well, tu trump doesn't belie
8:28 am
that. >> i'm not defending trump. i have been criticizing trump for months on end about what he said about getting rid of birthright citizenship. if you are born in this country, you are an american citizen, but the system is broken and there are people who specifically come across the border for the only reason, to have a child in america so that they can stay in this country -- >> then talk about it that way. then talk about it that way. >> i just did. >> well, then don't call them anchor babies. here is the problem, ben, and this is a huge -- >> it is an anchor baby when it anchors the parent here. >> continue to talk about it that way because here is the political problem for your party. when off terp that's being used that way and it is offensive to a huge constituency that republicans -- >> when did it become offensive? >> -- can't get to the white house without, when they cannot get to the white house with at least 40% of the hispanic vote, look at what happened to mitt romney when he claimed the term -- >> i'm not talking about mitt romney. >> look at john mccain talking
8:29 am
about building -- >> i'm not talking about john mccain. >> this is jeb bush and you might agree -- >> maria, maria -- >> jeb bush, i do think is not being true to himself because he better than anybody should know better than to use this term. >> okay. >> again, anchor baby was not offensive, maria, until democrats like yourself tried to turn it into some sort of offensive term -- >> no, no, no ben. talk to people -- >> this was not an issue in 2008 -- >> talk to people in the southwest. talk to mexican immigrants in the sweps who have suffered -- >> i talked to plenty, maria. >> -- this kind of discrimination for years and years and years. they will tell you this is an absolutely derogatory term and if you're going to use it in a blanket way, there is no way, no way that this republican party or anybody representing it will ever reach the white house. >> okay. ben ferguson, maria cardona, thank you for that lively discussion. >> thank you, pam. >> thanks. making history right now. two women are graduating from

moment. the graduation of the first women ever from the army's elite ranger school. take a look, you're looking at some live pictures of the event. captain kristen griest and first lieutenant shaye haver made it through the grueling nine-week training. training through the woods, mountains, and swamps. training that many men have dropped out of through the years. >> to the other females who plan on coming, i hope they come with a strong mind because that's what it takes to get through here. just like everyone sitting next to me had to do. >> i came here to try to be a better leader and improve myself. for other women with that goal in mind, keep that goal in mind and just don't lose sight of it and keep reminding yourself of why you're there and they will be fine. >> women are not allowed in combat just yet. joining me now is marine and iraq war veteran jude eden. thank you for coming on to talk with us. you've had obviously a lot of experience in the military, and you have some concerns about
8:35 am
this idea of women in combat. what are they? >> well, just because some of the females and let me say this first, i'm completely proud of those women. i respect them. i respect their accomplishments, and when i talk about women in combat and the idea that it's bad to put the women in the units, this is not a reflection of women or individual women or anything like that. it's a bad policy. it's a bad policy because even aside from the physical ability, there are many, many reasons -- there are a lot of high risks that are added when you put women in the mix. we have a lot higher risk. we have higher risk of injury and those are longer term than they tend to be for men. there are lots of really good reasons aside from those who have been able to say like graduate from ranger school. >> well, you know, it was really incredible to hear what the men
8:36 am
in the ranger school with these women had to say because i imagine some of them had their doubts in the beginning, and then really spoke out in support. in fact, several of the men who graduated from the program with these women say they showed more strength than several of the men. let's take a listen. >> there was one night we were doing a long walk. i was the 320 gunner so i had a lot of weight on me and i was struggling and i stopped and i asked at a halfway point, hey, can anyone help take some of this weight. i got a lot of deer in the headlight looks, a lot of people were like i can't take any more weight. shaye was the only one to volunteer to take that weight. she carried it the last half. literally saved me. i probably wouldn't be sitting here right now if it wasn't for shaye. >> it shows it's all about teamwork. why not use that amazing strength as part of a fighting force? >> because the tip of the spear has to be the best of the best of the very best without a bunch of additional risks that are not
8:37 am
present for men. >> and again, if you would, lay out what those risks are because i imagine these women perhaps would say, you know, what are we talking about? they didn't lower the standards for us. we made it through this grueling course and we're here with these men. why are there more risks for us than for them? >> there are many, many more risks. women have many times the injuries that men do in the military. that's not fair or equal. combat is not a fair thing, so what is governing these decisions is diversity. it's the military diversity commission. it's not combat readiness, and when you have additional risks, okay, all the additional injuries that women get, that is high risk. when you know one group of people gets injured many more times than the other, men and women cease to become interchangeable. when there's a chance of pregnancy, when women are more
8:38 am
prone to infections, even if they are taking care of themselves. it's not that women don't take care of themselves. it's not that birth control is not available, but it still happens. these are much greater risks for women, so -- and when we talk about opening the combat units to women, that's the only thing standing between women and the draft. so we're not just talking about a few women who want to go there. we're now making it so that all enlisted women whether they want to or not are going to be put in these units. 92% of army women said that they do not want to be assigned to direct combat units. so we're taking away the choice. we're putting an unfair burden on women because it's the enlisted women who are going to pay for this. they're going to pay for it with their bodies. it's not fair to do to women even if there are some women who want to do it. >> even if they make the choice to do that. jude eden, thank you for sharing your perspective. >> thank you for having me.

just into cnn, new details on the shooting of an 18 in st. louis that prompted violent protests after hearing the victim was shot in the back. a law enforcement with knowledge of the case tells cnn's don lemon that four shots were fired, three of them by one officer. we're also told that police are canceling days off and going to 12-hour shifts this weekend in preparation for community reaction. of course, we will share any more updates as we get them. and switching gears to what's going on in the atlantic. hurricane danny strengthens into a category 2 hurricane. way tonight bring in chad myers for more on this. what does this mean for us? >> it's still many, many days away from the u.s. if it ever makes it here. it has to go over quite a few islands before it does. it is a small hurricane with a lot of wind in the very middle. i can draw you a box here. this is one line of latitude and longitude. so that's about 70 miles by 70
8:44 am
miles. if i box this whole thing in with two, that's 140 by 140. i mean, that's not even the size of pennsylvania. so it's a small but exact and mighty little storm and mighty far away yet, too. it is going to travel towards the leeward islands, probably close to st. thomas, maybe the british virgin islands, maybe antigua. we'll see where it goes from here, but the middle of the cone does take it over the islands and maybe even toward puerto rico if it turns left or turns right, it misses all the islands but we'll have to watch it from there. when it hits haiti and the dr they will tear it up because there's a lot of mountains. >> chad, i know you will be keeping a close eye on it. thanks so much. donald trump was right, police say that's what two men said following their alleged attack on a homeless man. their reason, according to officials, was because the victim was an illegal immigrant. the pair identified as brothers, scott and steve leader, they face assault and battery charges
