usa! usa! >> it could be i'll have to debate because you know what, if you're in first place you don't want to really debate a guy that was in second place. >> i heard he was going to debate me and then i heard he was not going to debate me. well, mr. trump, what are you afraid of? >> she said she was sexually assaulted by a baylor student last march and after she tried reporting the attack, it went nowhere. >> how do we prevent this particular bacteria, which is resistant to antibiotics from
spreading and where are the new antibiotics going to come from? >> good morning. so grateful for your company as always. i'm christi paul. >> and i'm victor blackwell. >> we want to talk about a pilot who died when his plane crashed into the hudson river. he is a veteran pilot from key west, florida. he was flying a restored world war ii era plane. when it crashed, he just could not make it out of that cockpit to save himself. rai rachel crane joins us live from new york. what else are you learning about this? >> behind me is the scene of last night's search and rescue operation. that's a single seater world war ii plane crashed into the hudson at around 7:30 last night, the
nypd and fdny and other agencies responded to the incident. this is a heavy populated area of the hudson. there are restaurants, there's running paths on either side here. witnesses saw this crash happen. they described the scene as incredibly traumatic. in fact, there was an individual on a sail boat here that jumped into the water to help rescue that pilot after the incident had happened. unfortunately, he was unsuccessful at that. the witnesses described the scene. take a listen. >> he was liked strapped into the seat belt and you could see him really trying to get out. there was no hope for him like. >> you could actually see the pilot struggling. he was there for about 30 seconds to one minute. >> it's very upsetting because you know you watched somebody die. >> now the museum that owned the plane put out a statement earlier today. they said that the faa will determine the reason for the in-flight failure but we know this much, bill was a nationally
respected pilot and we were lucky to have called one of our own. >> just keep thinking about these families and hearing about how he was struggling. >> trouble is blrewing in the atlantic. the national weather service expecting a tropical depression to intensify and close in on the east coast. allison, this is the wrong weekend. there's no good weekend but so many people are going to be on the roads. >> you don't want any weekend but a big travel weekend like this. this could not be good timing. stretching the entire coastline of south carolina. let's get a closer look at what we're dealing with on this particular storm. winds about 35 miles per hour. that's 4 miles per hour off from getting the tropical storm distinction, which we do expect for it to increase and
intensify. let's take a look at the area of concern. we've got the low pressure. that would be your tropical depression. as it gets closer to the south carolina coast, we have a couple of things to keep an eye out for. high tide will be around 1:30 overnight tonight, which is about when they expect to us make landfall. the two of them combined will lead to flooding and the potential for storm surge. when you look at how it comes in, think of the tunnel effect you get with wind. you have so many bays and harbors along the coast, this also will play into rip currents, which will be a huge threat going into the afternoon hours, tonight and into tomorrow. again, with so many tourist there is who don't always necessarily know the rules of play with rib currents, that could end up turning deadly with this storm. here's a look at the next 48 hours as that system kind of rolled back in. we are still anticipating a pretty decent amount of rain with this system. some areas could pick up 2 to 4 inches. again, when you match that with the high tide and low-lying geography of this area, flooding
is going to end up being a big concern. >> allison, thank you so much. we'll check back in a moment. >> and there was chaos here. angry crowds outside a donald trump rally in san diego. officers pushed the protesters. several were pepper sprayed. at least 35 were arrested. there had been similar episodes in several states outside of rallies for the presumptive republican nominee. let's bring in cnn correspondent scott mclean. we have seen these protests outside of donald trump rallies before. in some cases they've become violentte violent. tell us what happened here. >> protesters were throwing bottles and eggs at each other. trump's plan to build a wall on the mexican border which is not
far from san diego is a a policy proposal that helped draw in the crowd while trump supporters outside chanted "build that wall." inside donald trump continued to slam hillary clinton over her use of a private e-mail service. trump says it's all part of his strategy to focus on about 15 states in the general election, some swing states and some democratic strongholds. what's not part of trump's strategy is debating bernie sanders. that idea generated a lot of discussion. and both trump and sanders seemed to be on board but yesterday trump backed out saying in a statement, "now that i am the presumptive republican nominee, it seems inappropriate that i would debate the second place finisher."
this week hillary clinton has largely ignored bernie sanders to focus on trump. the latest poll shows sanders and clinton in a dead heat. today sanders is actually celebrating his wedding anniversary by campaigning at three events in california. >> scott mclean, we'll get into all of those topics with our panel. thanks very much. >> a stern warning from russia about deploying a u.s. defense missile with europe. nato insists the system that went operational this month in romania is only defensive but putin's response leaves little doubt he'd use any strategic missiles in europe as a direct threat. listen. >> translator: if yesterday in those areas of romania people
city spli d simply did not know what it means to be in the cross hairs. i repeat these are retaliatory measures, retaliatory. we will not take any first steps. it will be the first case with poland. we will wait until poland takes certain action. we won't take any action. no action. we won't take any action until we see rockets in areas that neighbor us. >> cnn military analyst joining us. colonel, thank you for being here. president putin has warned the west repeatedly about deploying a miss ile shield in europe. >> he has a track record of acting on his threats. just look at the eastern ukraine, look what he did in the crimea and syria, very effective military operation. you have to listen to what he
says. now we're talking a different thing. when you're talking about invading ukraine or going to syria for a military operation, much, much different than taking on nato. if he does anything in romania or poland or the czech republic as he's threatening to do, then he triggers article 5 of the nato charter, which means an attack on any state is an attack on all states. i don't think he wants to get into an armed confrontation with nato but he wants to up the ante on what's going on there. i think washington is going to have to look at this because he's a verimeimey mercurial pen. >> what do you suspect he would do? >> he has an enclave and could
move forces to his borders. he has long-range rockets. he has the capability to put everybody in the crosshairs. i think cooler heads will prevail but he wants to make his point. although his point really is kind of hard to believe, these rockets really are not a threat to russia. russia has a strategic military force that is far beyond the capabilities of this system. this is to protect nato. this is a nato operation, not a u.s. operation. >> lieutenant, thank you so much for breaking it down for us. appreciate it, sir. >> an alleged sexual assault victim talked to cnn about why she felt pushed aside by baylor university. >> how i fail about baylor is like they failed me. wait. data just changed... now she's into disc sports. ah, no she's not. since when? since now. she's into tai chi. she found disc sports too stressful. hold on. let me ask you this... what's she gonna like six months from now?

sexual assault. >> an alleged victim of one of those assaults said the school failed its students and didn't live up to its own values. ed lavandera talked to her. >> christi and victor, the chairman of the board of regents said the details of the internal investigation were shocking and outrageous. but despite that, ken star wasn't fully fired. >> how i feel about baylor, it's like they failed me. >> stephanie says that while baylor university's internal report vindicates her and many more young women, she says it's now clear the prominent baptist university shunned them after they reported being sexually assaulted. >> the institutional crap, like this is out of our hands. we can't do anything about it. case is closed. you know what i mean? like if you really believe someone was raped, wouldn't you do something? right, especially like with the high christian standards they
purport to have. >> she said she was sexually assaulted by a baylor student last march and after she tried reporting the attack, it went nowhere. >> if you believe someone was raped, wouldn't you do something urgently about it? wouldn't you? wouldn't you respond with urgency? that's the thing, we don't see urgency. we see we'll coordinate this week, we hope to meet with this witness in a week or two. >> baylor's board of regents said it was horrified by a fundamental failure to protect students. a massive new stadium was built on campus but critics say the sexual assault investigations were covered up to protect the school image.
>> baylor knew, had prior knowledge of a huge problem with sexual assault on their campus, especially through the athletic program. and they just did not, they did absolutely really nothing to protect these female students. >> head football coach art briel will be fired and ken starr, who investigated the bill clinton monica lewinsky scandal was removed as president. neither has responded in cnn's request for comment. in a telephone conference call with reporters, baylor officials refuse to say why ken starr wasn't fired outright. >> we don't talk about individual people. it's just inappropriate to do that. again, we just have higher expectations for people in leadership. >> baylor university said it released the key findings of its internal investigation to be open with the university community. however, that report does no
specify just how many sexual assault victims there were or how many cases it investigated. we've asked but haven't got i don't know an answer. christi and victor. >> ed lavandera reporting for us. thanks so much. >> donald trump believes he can win california in november. this is a traditionally democratic state, has been since 1988. how plausible is it he can pull that off? also, for the first time in the u.s., doctors are faced with a so-called superbug. even the strongest antibiotics cannot kill this. so what can be done? what are our options to fight this bacteria?

together, we're building a better california. donald trump has a new general election strategy and just like his campaign, it's unconventional. he wants to try to paint traditionally blue states red, including california. it's not seen a republican win since the 1980s. listen to what he said in fresno last night. >> no other republican, let's say ted cruz won or let's say any one of them won, they wouldn't even come here for dinner because they are told as a republican you have zero chance, okay? i really believe we're going to win it it. i think we is a real chance to win it. and you know what? i view it strategically also because if we don't win it, they are going to spend one hell of a
fortune in fighting me off, that i can tell you. >> let's talk about that part of what he just said. let's bring in angela rise, the former executive director of the congressional black caucus. good to have both of you this morning. katrina, i want to start with you. how much of this is a real belief and strategy to win california or is donald trump just trying to drain the coffers of the democratic nominee? >> no, i think mr. trump does believe he can win california. i think we've seen from the beginning of this campaign that mr. trump has been underestimated from the beginning. there are a lot of independents and a lot of democrats that do support mr. trump and we've seen now that he's been able to break records even on the republican side. >> so, angela, we know that there are some states along the rust belt, that the democrats will have to fight for that are typically democratic states. if we go out to the west coast,
are democrats concerned that donald trump can take california. >> i think to katrina's point he had been underestimated and it's unfortunate on the democratic side and really for the other really candidates who he beat that he has been underestimated. the reality is we have to fight a 50-state battle. howard dean when he was chair of the dnc made it clear we need to play in all 50 states. what playing in 50 states looks like is up to each presidential candidate to decide. what i will say to you is if donald trump continues down the same vein that he's been going down in terms of his rhetoric, which sparked all types of protests yesterday in california where he says he wants to play, and if he ever introduces a substantive policy agenda in a matches the violent rhetoric that he's continued to spew and the vitriol and bigotry behind it, i don't think we have anything to worry about at all. i think californians and
americans are much smarter than that and won't buy into that kind of rhetoric. >> we have pictures up now. we have democrats and republicans all morning long who have gone back and forth for on whom the onus is for what we saw here. does donald trump have a responsibility o come out and denounce what we have here? we saw a tweet here saying thanks to the police department. does that help? >> it absolutely helps for a couple of reasons. most people in this country don't believe that it's bigoted and racist to enforce current united states laws on immigration but more importantly with regard to california and protesters, mr. trump has already come out several times and condemned the violence at
these rallies but we've also figured out it's not trump people. these are paid agitator in many cases. >> who pays them, katrina? >> you can go to craigslist, move on out.org. >> katrina, that's ridiculous. >> george soros funded some of these. these are all in the internet, ads have been placed by these organizations, they've been tweeting about, it promoting it -- >> you say there are ads on craigslist to hire protesters? >> yes. and moveon.org. >> angela, agree and respond to at that. >> one is it's ridiculous. moveon.org, i don't have any basis so let me be careful. i'm someone who comes on air and is careful to be sure i have fact-based arguments and not propaganda. >> as am i.
>> no, you're not, katrina. that's why you got called out by wolf the other day because you're not. >> no, i'm not going to sit there and let her go on. >> i asked angela to stop for to you speak. and now i'm asking you to stop for angela to speak. angela, go ahead. >> of course there are people who are based and rooted in progressive organizations that are encouraging people to get out and be heard and to fight against this type of conduct. there's a young man outside protesting yesterday that wore a shirt that says i just look like an illegal immigrant. at the rally where they're protesting, donald trump, of course he was in town for two reasons, he wants to win california and he also wants to win that civil suit where he defrauded hundreds of people for attending trump university. he calls the federal judge in the case a hater and then he says he's a mexican. how curious is that that this guy who has all kinds of vitriol
towards mexican people -- i watched a trump supporter agitate these protesters. i heard people who attended the rally say trump supporters were going around the block to agitate people. i watch someone flick somebody off and shortly after get arrested. let's be honest, if people are getting paid, i don't know who they're getting paid by. hundreds of people will tell you they're out there speaking up for their rights. they're tired of being oppressed and tired of the victim blame persian gulf. >> we know the place came and tried to allow the people at the event to leave safely and peacefully but were agitated by some of the protesters there. we don't know the political affiliation or the alliances of the nearly three dozen people who were arrested. we doesn't know if they were all democrats or all republicans. >> or mixed.
it was both. and i think that here's the reality of this. you see a scene at one point where there's a man and he's been at several events saying free hugs. his sign is free hugs. there's a white guy in front of him that is throwing punches at the other side. so you can assume, again i won't do that, but it's very clear that tensions are high on both sides. and at some point someone who wants to be president should act presidential and stop being immature and be accountable for this hate speech. >> i want to give you an opportunity to respond. >> thank you. if you have to be escorted out of a political rally, that tells you everything you need to know about the protesters. and they don't need to be agitated. these individuals were not agitated. and, yes, they were paid and those -- the video has been out there playing since this whole thing started. it is moveon.org and some
organizations and some funded by the government, particularly those in california. this is out there, it's been covered in the media. it has been fact based and it is proven. you can reject it all you want. >> katrina, you have evidence that the protesters were paid by the government? >> these organizations. yes, these organizations have been paid to go out there and protest these rallies. cnn should really do a special on that and really open the eyes of the viewers. >> if you've got the evidence, e-mail it to me. >> i will do that right now. >> all right. katrina peterson, angela rye, we have to end it there. i thank you both for being with us. >> i'm look for that e-mail. >> all right. >> you're going to be waiting a long time. >> those scenes are keeping people awake in cleveland. we're talking to the president of the city council about how that city is trying to prevent
ahhh the sweet taste of victory! prilosec otc. one pill each morning. 24 hours. zero heartburn. people are taking charge of their type 2 diabetes with non-insulin victoza®. for a while, i took a pill to lower my blood sugar. but it didn't get me to my goal. so i asked my doctor about victoza®. he said victoza® works differently than pills. and comes in a pen. victoza® is proven to lower blood sugar and a1c. it's taken once a day, any time. victoza® is not for weight loss, but it may help you lose some weight. victoza® works with your body to lower blood sugar in 3 ways: in the stomach, the liver, and the pancreas. vo: victoza® is an injectable prescription medicine that may improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes when used with diet and exercise. it is not recommended as the first medication to treat diabetes and should not be used in people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis.
victoza® has not been studied with mealtime insulin. victoza® is not insulin. do not take victoza® if you have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer, multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you are allergic to victoza® or any of its ingredients. symptoms of a serious allergic reaction may include itching, rash, or difficulty breathing. tell your doctor if you get a lump or swelling in your neck. serious side effects may happen in people who take victoza®, including inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis). stop taking victoza® and call your doctor right away if you have signs of pancreatitis such as severe pain that will not go away in your abdomen or from your abdomen to your back, with or without vomiting. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take and if you have any medical conditions. taking victoza® with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. the most common side effects are headache, nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting. side effects can lead to dehydration, which may cause kidney problems. if your pill isn't giving you the control you need
>> sure. let me ask you first and foremost what precautions are you taking and how confidence are you in the preparations cleveland is making for this convention? >> i'm very confident, christi. the city has been preparing for this for over a year. this is something that -- this isn't a rally that has sprung up, this is a major event that we've been preparing for for years -- excuse me, a year and we are very prepare for this. >> in watching what's happened over the last several months and some of the protesters and violence we've seen, surely when you took on this event, did not see this coming, wondering if you've had to shift strategies and how it's impacting is financially the city in this regard. >> maybe slightly. the thing to rather about a
political convention is that there are always protests. that a part of the event you prepare for. even if the nominee weren't donald trump and weren't an inflammatory nominee, we were planning on protests and planning on unrest anyhow. this certainly ratchets it up a little bit. so we adjust our plan. we never thought we'd go through july without events and political statements. >> and that's their right. have you delegated certain areas of town outside the convention center where protesters will be and supporters will be? >> yes. and we rolled that out just this week and significantly the protest areas and where the protest and parade routes go, they're going to be closer to the arena than they were in tampa and many other convention cities. we believe that we have set up a route and a zone that is both
constitutional. it allows people to express themselves but it's also going to ensure the safety of the delegates of the guests of the police officers of other law enforcement officers. we're confident we're going to meet all of the goals. >> there are conversations being had in this political arena about possible death threats to people. i'm wondering if anybody in the city of cleveland has gotten any sort of threat or any violence being planned. are you watching social media? >> i have no specific knowledge of that. the intelligence unit of the cleveland division of police is very aware of all the social media conversation, of everything that goes on. this community has dealt with situations of unrest somewhat recently. in the fall we had some very
unfortunate police citizen events that really tested this community and really tested how we're going to respond to unrest and to protesters and those that were legitimately angry and her. we showed an example to the nation of how this city would respond to events of unrest. >> good to know. mr. kevin kelly, we appreciate you being here. thank you. >> thank you for having me. have a great rest of the day. >> libertarians gathering in orlando are trying to decide on the party's presidential and vice presidential nominees. former governors and gary johnson and bill weld joined me. i asked about weld's relationship with donald trump. >> what's your opinion of him? >> there's the donald trump you meet socially, he's a warm person, not an ungenerous person. some of the stuff that he's running on i think is absolutely
chaotic. i'm going to do this to mexico. okay, that's a violation of the north american free trade agreement, which is the supreme law of the land. it's a treaty, we signed it. >> i'm going to do this to china. okay, that's a violation of the world trade organization rules. we would be the rogue nation. i don't think we want to be the rogue nation. let's let north korea be the rogue nation, not us. >> you were cbo of a company called cannabis citiva, you've been open about your use of cannabis products. would a president johnson use cannabis products in the white house? >> no, i wouldn't. i've been on record saying that. i haven't had a drink in 29 years. i think i really have a proven record of discipline beyond most people. and, no, i don't think you want to have the president of the united states impaired and
potentially being impaired in any way whatsoever. >> you can watch the full interview with gary johnson and bill weld, former governor at our web site and cnn is at the libertarian convention all weekend. we have live coverage beginning in just a few hours. >> live pictures of flooding in texas. this is coming in as we're speaking here. the state received more than 16 inches of rain yesterday. the big part of the problem are students who have been trapped at a school and they had to stay there overnight. they're hoping to reon its with families soon. >> and communities here are completely inundated. back to the school that christi was talking about.
school superintendent walter jackson said he hopes the remaining student would be re reunited with their families. live pictures. this is an apartment complex where those cars are stranded there and unfortunately there is more rain on the way for the southeast. we'll be talking about that throughout the latter part of the morning and afternoon. >> at least there's sunshine now so they can at least get a brief reprieve. >> it is a superbug that can't be fought with normal antibiotics. doctors are warning this could be a sign of more dangerous bacteria to come. just like i would with a real pencil. i've been a forensic artist for over 30 years. i do the composite sketches which are the bad guy sketches. you need good resolution, powerful processor because the computer has to start thinking as fast as my brain does. i do this because i want my artwork to help people.

for the first time in the u.s., doctors say they found a superbug or at least a strain of e. coli that is nearly resistant to all antibiotics. >> now scientists say the superbug could be a warning of a sign of what's to come. here's cnn's chief medical correspondent dr. sanjay gupta with what we know at this point. >> all we know at this point is that this woman is 49 years old, that she's from pennsylvania, she was seen in a clinic, she wasn't in a hospital, she was seen in a clinic and she was found to have an e. coli bacteria that does not get killed by any existing antibiot antibiotic.
she hasn't traveled from overseas recently so this does not appear to come from another country. know the focus for researchers is what do we do about this? how do we prevent this particular bacteria from spreading and where are the new antibiotics going to come from? where are they going to come from and when are they going to come? i think medical officials for some time have been anticipating a day like this and there have been various strategies in the works. we just have to make sure it doesn't spread and that we have more tools in the tool box as soon as possible. back to you. >> sanjay, thanks so much. turning to politics. whether you're on the trump train or you're with her or feeling the burn, this seem to be tearing personal friends apart. >> so listen, if you know someone going above and beyond to make the world a better place, nominate him or her as a

they were trapped in flooded cars, flooded homes. in one community children had to spend the night at school because the water made the road impassable. the superintendent said he hopes the remaining students who are still at the school will be reunited with their families pretty soon. again, a look at just the dire situation there in texas court ktrk. >> of course it's memorial day weekend. election season is in full swing as we know, which means your barbecue is not going to be the only thing getting fired up most likely. >> your friends and relatives, they're finding attacks over political preferences are getting personal, on both sides and in the middle. "the democratic party, while incredibly high minded compared with the republican one is creating lasting interpersonal enmity. >> michelle, you write about one
particular incident where you realized the discourse had just gone past the tipping point. what was that? >> i had seen it building for a while. i had seen supporters of hillary clinton being divided as shills and sellouts and kind of as old ladies who just want to see themselves in the white house, where bernie people are considered impactable dreamers, who don't realize they're just the choice of rich, young while people but what made me decide to write this piece is when an old colleague of my husband's popped up on his facebook thread and started insulting him and calling him a sellout. i realized these are two people who are never going to have collegial relayingships again. i reached out and find out these
fissures were going on all over. >> we go through this every election. why do you think this year it's having an impact like that? >> i think with the democratic primary, there' so much at stake and there's ideological gulf between bernie sanders and someone who wants to overthrow it all together. there was a lot of tensions and really even hatreds in 2008, but there -- ultimately it was kind of about representation, would we have the first woman presidential candidate or the first african-american. ideologically they were relatively close. that's really different this year. so what we're finding is that among progressives people who are used to thinking of themselves as having the same values and the same goals are finding out that actually they don't. there's a huge difference in between what different people prioritize, how they view
reality and the nature of political possibility and then also social media is much more ubiquitous than it was in 2008. so people are used to agreeing with each other online are suddenly finding people that they know kind of -- they're find that they hold all of these very, you know, kind of smearing or contempt use opinions about people like you and it's very jarring. >> we only have that 30 seconds but i'm looking at it and i think often these people who now have this rift between them, when we get through the election, they look back and go i miss that person, i wish i wouldn't have severed that friendship. give me your first fervent piece of advice if we're going to get through it politically. >> i think the most important thing is not question the other person's motives. not to assume that because they're not supporting the same candidate that you are that it's because they don't share the same values or they don't care
about a more just society because they don't care about equality or they don't care abo about, and not to assume that because somebody disagrees with you that they are immoral. >> thank you so much for taking the time. >> thank you very much. >> we hope you have a wonderful memorial day weekend here and make some good memories. >> suzanne malveaux is coming up in just a moment. use clorox disinfecting products. because no one kills germs better than clorox. this is claire in phoenix. yes!i help you? great. correct! ma'am. this isn't an automated computer... operator! ma'am. i'm here. i'm live. wait. you're real? yeah. with discover card, you can talk to a real person in the u.s. day or night. plus, we're not going to waste your time trying to sell you a bunch of other products you don't really need. that is really nice of you.
