our sincere congratulations to grandpa wolf. wish you all the best. that does it for us. thanks for watching. "cnn tonight with codon lemon" starts now. >> trump campaign turmoil. less thank three months to go until election day, this is cnn tonight. i'm don lemon. hillary clinton surging in swing states. as donald trump blames the media. stokes fear of a rigged election. and faces calls to step down from some in his own party. meanwhile, the mogul turned reality star turned presidential candidate says this about the plan to defeat isis. >> the time is overdue to develop a new screening test for the threats we face today. i call it extreme vetting. i call it extreme, extreme vetting. >> and hillary clinton says this.
>> sometimes he says he won't tell anyone what he'll do because he wants to keep his plan, quote, secret. >> let's get right to cnn's sara murray in youngstown, ohio, where donald trump laid out his isis plan today and here with me in new york is cnn's justice correspondent, pamela brown. good to have both of you on this evening. sara, you first. donald trump is trying to get his campaign back on track. today he gave what was billed as a major foreign policy speech outlining his plan to fight terror. what were the highlights? >> reporter: well, don, he did unveil a pretty big shift in terms of how the u.s. approaches foreign policy. saying it's time to put an end to nation building and saying we need to focus all our efforts essentially on fighting isis and become allies with whoever wants to fight isis alongside the united states if isis is their enemy, they should be an american ally in this battle against isis. one thing that's getting a lot of attention is what he brings up in terms of a new immigration
plan. he suggested an ideological test for folks who wants to come to the united states and even he said it was an extreme test. take a listen to how he described it earlier today. >> should only admit into this country those who share our values and respect our people. in the cold war, we had an ideological screening test. the time is overdue to develop a new screening test. i call it extreme vetting. i call it extreme, extreme vetting. our country has enough problems. we don't need more and these are problems like we've never had before. >> reporter: now when he's talking about extreme vetting, he explained the goal here is to weed out immigrants who might have radical beliefs whether those are anti-semitic, anti-gay, anti-christian. he didn't give a lot of specifics on how he would
implement such a policy, don. >> anything in the the speech we hadn't heard before, sara? >> reporter: i think this was really the biggest new piece of information from donald trump. we, of course, heard him talk about the muslim ban in the past. that's not something he mentioned tonight. and we heard him mention wanting to block people coming from countries where he sees terrorism being bred and reiterated that call. this notion you're going to impose an ideological test on immigrants who want to come to the united states is what's real ary been the point of discussion for most of today, don. >> to our panel. hillary clinton was on the stump with vice president joe biden today. friendly territory. scranton, pennsylvania. give us some highlights. >> this is first time hillary clinton went on the campaign trail with vice president joe biden and it was in scranton, pennsylvania, where both have family roots. joe biden is from there. hillary clinton's father is from there. joe biden really came out of the gate today basically talking about why he thought hillary clinton was fit to be president and trump was unfit and went further than that basically saying that donald trump would
be a danger to national security because he cannot be trusted. he talked about how there was someone in the back who had nuclear codes and basically said that, look, donald trump is someone who can't be trusted with those nuclear codes. he's too erratic. he cannot be trusted. his shame has no limits. he even said at one point, don, that he's someone who could be friends with the former leader of the soviet union which some may say, hey, he may have crossed the line there. clearly trying to evoke fear that donald trump is not fit for president. >> it was a blistering attack, pamela. let's listen to some of it. >> i have worked -- i've worked with eight presidents of the united states. i have served with hundreds of senators. only 13 senators in history, i'm embarrassed to say, have served as long as i have. dozens of secretaries of state and secretaries of defense of both parties. and i can say without hesitation my word as a biden, no major party nominee in the history of
the united states of america has -- don't cheer. just listen. has known less or been less prepared to deal with our national security than donald trump. >> so this is a mantra that he's not fit to be president. he's making that case for saying donald trump is not fit to be president. he's appealing to voters that tell it like it is, joe biden voters who like joe. >> that's right. particularly these white working class voters, blue collar democrats in scranton, pennsylvania. this is the key voting block. this is a voting bloc that hillary clinton has had trouble with this campaign. donald trump has been actively courting them. he needs them in large numbers if he's going to win come november. you heard joe biden make the case why he thinks donald trump is a danger to national security and seize on his popularity among these voters. he's really garnered their support through his years in public office. he's trying to get their support
on hillary clinton's side. >> pamela, sara. stay with me. i want to bring in cnn's john king. hello to you. donald trump has been slipping in the polls ever since the convention. of particular importance is the swing states. what's the latest on that is. >> without a doubt. what he's hoping is this isis speech today can get him back on track because hillary clinton has been gaining and gaining consistently. let's look here. these are six of your traditional battleground states. in close presidential election, camp out in these six, you tend to figure out who's going to win. at the moment hillary clinton leads in all of them. by average, plus three in florida, plus two ohio, plus four in north carolina, plus eight in new hampshire. double dints in virginia, double digits in colorado. donald trump has to turn blue states red from the obama/romney map to change it. this is a generous presentation for mr. trump, this averages out the five or six most recent polls so trump was closer back in the day.
at the moment, don, when you look at these numbers and look at this map, there's not one blue state here from the obama/romney map i can circle and say donald trump is leading it. advantage clinton big-time. >> let's talk more about that. he has made a point of saying he can turn some traditional blue democratic states republican red. is he even close to that anywhere, john? >> the answer is no, again, which is why, again, 85 days to go, donald trump has defied logic and political gravity before. don't count him out. in michigan on average, clinton leads by six. pennsylvania on average, clinton leads by nine. wisconsin, it's nine. new york, it's 17. donald trump said he can win most if not all of the states. most people think he needs pennsylvania, don. somehow when you look at this map, somehow he's got to turn some of these blue red and, again, there are some red states here. clinton is leading at the moment in north carolina. romney won that. clinton's comparative in georgia. clinton's comparative out in georgia. some people think with the conservative challenger, she can
be competitive in utah. nothing blue i can circle tonight and say advantage trump. there are red ones when you say can clinton is in play. long way to go. trump is in a polling ditch. >> let's get back to sara now. we heard that throughout the campaign. what is he trying to get at here? >> reporter: well, i think when he talks about these mental attacks about hillary clinton and isis, he laid out what he thought were president obama and hillary clinton's foreign policy failures to date. he's obviously talked a lot about benghazi. sort of feeling like she doesn't have the record on national security and trying to poke holes frankly in the fact she does have much more foreign policy experience. on the physical side it's a little more per flexing. hillary clinton is 68 years old. donald trump is 70 years old. it does seem like just another jab here he wanted to land against her tonight. >> hillary clinton cannot get out from under the e-mail
scandal. what's happening with the release of the notes from her interview with the fbi? >> this continues to cast a shadow over her campaign. we're learning the fbi will soon be releasing notes from her interview with the bureau, the three hour plus interview over to congress and this was not done under oath. no transcript. it's unusual for the fbi to hand over notes like this to congress particularly in a case where the interview was voluntary and there were no charges such as this case and also the political sensitivity here. these are politically charged materials being handed over in the middle of the election year. james comey, director of the fbi, repeatedly said he wants to be as transparent as possible with this case and handing the notes over is one way to achieve that. no doubt this will once again bring her e-mail controversy back into center stage. >> thank you, pamela. thank you, sara. john king, stick with me. when we come back, top conservatives want the gop to cut trump loose. is it too late?
energy is a complex challenge. people want power. and power plants account for more than a third of energy-related carbon emissions. the challenge is to capture the emissions before they're released into the atmosphere. exxonmobil is a leader in carbon capture. our team is working to make this technology better, more affordable so it can reduce emissions around the world. that's what we're working on right now. ♪ energy lives here. what makes wendy's baconator different? while the other guys use frozen beef from far away. wendy's only serves fresh beef from ranches close by. so we don't have to freeze it. add six strips of thick, applewood smoked bacon. and wendy's baconator isn't just different, it's deliciously different. t-mobile's coverage is unstoppable, even at 30,000 feet. now get free go-go inflight wifi on your smartphone. lift off, power up, text it, browse it, work it. we got you covered. and we won't stop.
i'm going to make this as simple as possible for you. you can go ahead and stick with that complicated credit card that limits where you earn bonus cash back. or... you can get the quicksilver card from capital one. quicksilver earns you unlimited 1.5% cash back on ev-e-ry purchase, ev-e-ry-where. i shouldn't have to ask. what's in your wallet? bud light party here to discuss equal pay. women don't get paid as much as men and that is wrong. and we have to pay more for the same stuff. what? yeah. cars... what? dry cleaning... what? shampoo. what? you pay more but get paid less? that is double wrong. i'm calling everyone i know and i'm telling them about this. this has got to stop! bud light proudly supports equal pay, that's why bud light costs the same no matter if you're a dude or a lady. yeah mom you have to pay more for a car than dad. no one treats my mom like this!
donald trump staying on message, following a script on his speech on terrorism, foreign policy and immigration. can he turn his campaign around with less tan three months until election day? i want to bring in republican strategists kevin madden and john brabender and john king where with me. let me ask you about donald trump's speech.
many say hillary clinton is vulnerable on foreign policy on that front. did donald trump make the case against her leadership? >> i think, look, the problem for donald trump, the challenge for donald trump he has to make the foreign policy case against the former secretary of state. as troublesome as her record is, and a much more broad and sustained way. to this point, this juncture in the campaign, he's only done it intermittently. when you have someone like donald trump whose resume is not fashioned around national security or foreign policy, he has very little experience or very little resume there, he's going up in essentially a contest of credentials. hillary clinton has a lot of problems there marl s there. swing voters are much more like low to give her the benefit of the doubt because she has experience in having worked in the add investigation. for donald trump to really when effective there, he has to hammer away at some of hillary clinton's past problems or past bad decision making on national security and foreign policy. relentlessly. so you need something like
today, much more methodically throughout the rest of this campaign in order to chip away at that strength that she has. >> okay. what about the attacks on hillary clinton's health? is that a winning strategy? >> yeah, i think he has to be very kaucareful. his attack should be on washington and status quo, not just hillary. when he does go to hillary, they have to be where they're not personal, they have to be where she's been there for 24 years, she had her chance, she was tested and failed to test. we need somebody who can move us in a different direction. we already know that. most people don't think america is going the right direction. so when he makes it personal, he loses. when he makes it about be bigger issue and makes it anti-washington, it's much, much more powerful. >> the question is can he do it? is that even in him to do that? john king, republicans are seemingly jumping ship. many of them by the day. some ready to cut trump loose all together.
and today, extraordinary -- an extraordinary editorial from the "wall street journal." it says if they can't get mr. trump to change his act by labor day the gop will have no choice but to write off the nominee as hopeless and focus on salvaging the senate and house and other down-ballot races. as for mr. trump, he needs to stop blaming everyone else and decide if he wants to behave like someone who wants to be president or turn the nomination over to mike pence. they're encouraging republicans to cut trump loose by labor day if he doesn't change his ways. do you see that happening? >> i see it as a possibility. let's be honest. republican establishment groups including the "wall street journal" editorial page didn't want trump to begin with. they're not fans of mr. trump. he took over their party and what some consider a hostile takeover. l this is a dangerous one, don. there are a lot of republicans saying if we get past labor day and he's still in the tank, if he's still down in all those swing states, pull all the money, redirect it to the house and senate campaign. john and kevin can tell you better than i can because they've been involved in close
campaigns. if the guy at the top of the ticket tanks, even if you're perfect down below, even if you make every right decision, it's hard to win sometimes. in a state like pennsylvania, where john's worked extensively, they have a republican incumbent senator who's in trouble. if trump tanks in pennsylvania, then there's fights with republicans, we're going to spend our money here, going to spend our money there, yank this money away from tv or yank this money away from the ground game, those fights even if you think you're breaking from a nominee you think is toxic, you think you're helping your candidate, often, at least often as not, you're hurting your candidate. >> john, you want to talk about that? >> well, john's absolutely right. take a state also right now like north carolina which nobody thought was probably even going to be in play. we see not only the presidential in play with trump failing a little bit, we see the other candidates in that race doing to. understand, though, that trump can turn this thing around but they have fundamental problems within the campaign. fundamental problems with the message. and frankly, i think what some of these poem aeople are saying wish trump was more like mike
pence. >> i want you to weigh in on this. i was reading your twitter feed. for a second i was like, did i get ahold of taylor swift's twitter feed? you tweeted last night about this editorial. you said, you guys, he will never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever change, ever. like, never getting back together, right? like ever. so, i mean, you know, they -- >> you ran out of characters. >> yes. so john says he may be able to get it together and stay on message and turn things around. what did you mean by that tweet? >> i think what you're dealing with right now is donald trump. and donald trump's not going to change. a lot of what people are talking about, maybe he'll be more disciplined, maybe they'll have more organization in the campaign. maybe they'll focus more on policy. donald trump doesn't care about any of that. what you need is essentially a different candidate. like john said, you need mike pence. somebody who cares about policy. >> are you conceding the election then? are you saying it's never going to happen? >> i think there is a very, very slim chance that donald trump
has right now. i mean, it is the window has been closing. remember, we look at -- washington -- i'm sorry, the "wall street journal" referred to labor day, a traditional starter pistol for the campaign. it's not the actual start of the campaign. the opinions of people, the impressions made on voters that are persuadable righting now have been taking place over the last three months and donald trump has had probably the worst last three months of any general election candidate ever. so it is just very, very narrow window that he can turn this around. >> hey, john king, can i ask you because i'm wondering if the attack on the khans, the veiled threat against hillary clinton, you know, and the 2nd amendment, was that the turning point, you think, for donald trump because he had seemed bulletproof especially before the khans. >> i think the khans was part of it. look, we asked this question from the very beginning of the campaign when he questioned john mccain's patriotism, said he wasn't a real war hero because
he was captured. he's done so many other things. we always said is this the last straw, is this the last straw? i think there's been a cumulative effect. a different stage of the campaign. a lot of early things we thought were disqualifying or reprehensible or way out of bounds happened during a republican primary contest. people are picking a president, not a nominee for their pearty. you can make the case if you talk to smart strategies like the two with you tonight, they will tell you over time, the issue is this, you have a two-term democratic president. the republican party as john said should be running, how's it going, let's change washington, let's have a new direction, the last eight years haven't been that great, let's do something different. she has managed to turn it into a referendum on donald trump. as long as she can make that the case, his lack of government credentials, sometimes things he says that people would consider different or out of bounds, in some cases wacky are more in play. a challenger can get by with a lower bar if the issue is the incumbents. right now the issue is the
challenger. >> that's a point that john made. i want john to get in here. john, you're seeming to think he does have time to turn this around and those things aren't cumulative. >> two weeks ago, three weeks ago the race was pretty much even so the fluidity of it without even any debates, here's the thing that donald trump has to understand. two things. number one, people haven't been waiting their whole life to vote for donald trump. the people that are supporting him have been waiting a long time to send a message to washington. it's a big distinction. he has to understand that c context. >> that's a good point. >> second of all, he has to understand the general election is different than a primary. i think he is seeing now when he does make these mistakes his poll numbers do go down. he didn't see that in the primary. i think that's why he might change. >> go ahead, kevin. >> i was going to say to john king's point, too, at the same time the khan controversy was taking its toll on donald trump, hillary clinton was outspending -- hillary clinton campaign was outspending donald trump in some places 25-0 as far
as advertising. places like north carolina, the clinton campaign is spending money on adds that trump campaign is not on the air. so only one part of the conversation is being had with voters. and that's the clichnton campai to swing voters and you're seeing places that used to be solid red states for republicans are now tilting back into the democratic column. that's a huge problem. >> i heard paul manafort talking about how much money they raised yesterday on "state of the union." what are going to do with all that? you said hillary clinton had ads everywhere. what's going to happen with all that money now, john? >> well, people have been waiting -- people have been waiting and urging them to get on the air especially in these key battleground states to make the argument john is talking about. change washington. create jobs. then republicans are happy with the crooked hillary. they want it to come out change washington and create jobs. donald trump is still not on the air in swing states. >> the problem is there aren't many ads that will have a huge impact after labor day.
>> that's the point. >> the ads right now are a lot more important than when you u do come to september and october because there's a megaphone out there where they're hearing from everybody. i think it's a big mistake they're not on the air if, indeed, they raised this type of money. >> john, john, kevin, appreciate it. >> good to be with you as always. coming up, donald trump tries to stay on message, he's also upping his attacks on the media. is that a winning strategy? we're going to talk about it next. with 8 grams of protein, and 8 other nutrients. 9 out of 10 u.s. olympians grew up drinking milk. moms know kids grow strong when they milk life.
my name is jamir dixon and i'm a locafor pg&e.rk fieldman most people in the community recognize the blue trucks as pg&e. my truck is something new... it's an 811 truck. when you call 811, i come out to your house and i mark out our gas lines and our electric lines to make sure that you don't hit them when you're digging. 811 is a free service. i'm passionate about it because every time i go on the street i think about my own kids. they're the reason that i want to protect our community and our environment, and if me driving a that truck means that somebody gets to go home safer, then i'll drive it every day of the week. together, we're building a better california.
donald trump claiming hillary clinton lacks judgmenju stability and temperament to be president. hillary clinton campaigning with vice president joe biden who says trump is totally unqualified to sit in the oval office. i want to bring in jennifer grand ho granholm, and marcsha blackburn who supports donald trump. hello to both of you. >> hello. >> thanks for coming on this evening. >> hi, don. >> hi. trump trying to get back on message today. let's take a listen to one of his attacks on hillary clinton. >> hillary clinton lacks the judgment, as said by bernie sanders, stability, and temperament and the moral
character to lead our nation. importantly, she also lacks the mental and physical stamina to take on isis and all of the many adversaries we face. not only in terrorism, but in trade. >> all right. so congresswoman, you first. why is donald trump saying she lacks the mental and physical stamina to take on isis? >> well, i think what he is doing is kind of repeating what you see about hillary clinton and a word cloud where people challenge her trustworthiness, her focus on issues that are important to them. the stamina to stand with it. look at what happened in benghazi where they debated. for a period of time how they
w were going to talk about this. if you watch the film "13 hours" you see what those individuals were living through and, you know, don, i got to tell you when i'm out and about and talking to people in my district and i am talking to americans who are tremendously concerned about this country, they will talk to you about national security. being one of the top issues. about their fear of the terrorist cells that exist in this country. their concern over that. concern for the safety of their families. so that's why. >> i want to get the governor in on that. >> sure. >> do you think that she lacks the mental and physical stamina to take on isis? why do you think he's saying that is. >> you know, it was a dog whistle to me because what i hear when he says mental and physical stamina is not a discussion about policy. i hear -- i hear something that i think a lot of women hear, and this is just me. i hear it as being somehow she's
weaker, she can't deal with foreign policy. that's what i hear. i don't know that that's what he meant, but his arguments should be on the policy, and by the way, don, i mean, talk about somebody who lacks the -- i don't want to say mental ability, but, i mean, he certainly has been all over the match on t map on the policy he talked about today. in 2002, he said he was in favor of going into iraq. today he say he was against. in 2007 he says we should get out of iraq. when he talks about moammar gadha gadhafi. 2011, there's a taped interview saying moammar gadhafi should be out. today he says not so much, we maybe should have left him there. same thing with mubarak in egypt. is he in favor of a big military and having a very aggressive presence in iraq today? or is he in favor of withdrawing and not having a big presence. one second.
>> jennifer. >> just one more. >> give her a answer chance to response. >> the question about nato, a week ago he say s nato is lousy and should not be defending our allies. today he said we should be going after isis with nato. which donald trump is it? he was a hot mess today. it's expressed throughout the course of his campaign. >> congresswoman, i want you to respond. i want to move on to a different topic. quickly, how do you respond? >> listening to jennifer, one of the things withdrew ha s you ha is the middle east and what is happening around the world is not a static situation. is is a dynamic situation. and, indeed, this is something if you visit with our troops and talk with our commanders in the field, they will tell you how dynamic and how fluid the situation is and how some of the missteps that have been made with the way we came down in iraq, the way we have proceeded at some points in afghanistan, the way that has changed the situation.
>> okay. listen. i think it's important, i want to discuss this because we've been talking a lot about media coverage, you know, he's been saying that the media is corrupt and is not treating him fairly and also talking about honesty when coming on to programs. and also being at campaign events and telling the truth rather than telling voters nontruth. conservative wisconsin radio host charlie sykes said conservative media -- he said we basically eliminated any of the referees, gatekeepers, we created this monster. look, i'm a conservative talk show host. all conservative hosts have basically established their brand as being contrasted to the mainstream media. we spent 20 years demonizing the liberal mainstream media. by the way, a lot of it has been justified. there is real bias. at a certain point, you wake up to realize you have destroyed the credibility of any credible media outlet out there and then he says, he goes on to say, that
i get called a turncoat, i'm paraphrasing here, what have you, simply because he won't repeat things that are not true on his conservative -- he won't buy into conspiracy theories or say things that are not true on the air. so how do you respond to that, congresswoman? is he -- i know he's a never-trumper. person. what's your reaction to this? >> there's a lot of truth in what he says. you can go in and look at what people believe about the evening news. most people don't believe what they're hearing on the evening news and think much of what they're hearing on tv is biased and that is why people are gravitating to building their own networks between websites. facebook. youtube. things of that nature. >> congresswoman, what he's saying is exactly the opposite. he's saying -- >> it is a change. >> he's sayi ining conserve ti radio, conservative hosts have built up this thing that mainstream news or media which is even if you're fact checked, that is not telling the truth
then some crazy website that you're supposed to believe something on a crazy website rather than people who have studied their whole lives, who are looking at the facts. >> right. yes. i understand that, but what i'm saying, don, is yes, those alternative sources are where people are gathering their news now. what charlie is saying about how they have spoken out against the media many times. that is true. but the media has in part done this to themselves. >> that's not news. >> because they bring editorializing. they bring editorializing into what should be the reporting. now, what people want, i have people every day that tell me, you know, i watch c-span because i want to hear it come out of people's mouths. i want to hear it for myself. and whoever would have thought we would have people in the country that would be watching c-span. >> i want the governor to get in. >> don, people want the truth. they want to know the facts and
they don't want any gimmicks. they just want to have the facts. >> so, governor, even if you hear some people, many people hear it on c-span, they hear it coming from hillary clinton's mouth or donald trump's mouth. or if you fact check someone in real time on a program like this one, it is still not believed even though it is the fact. he's saying that we conservatives have created this monster meaning him and other conservatives. >> i, you know, it's hard to lay the blame at any one individual, but i do think as a strategy for donald trump to go after the media is not a really smart idea. really what he ought to be going after -- what any candidate ought to be going after are the things hurting citizens out there and many citizens really do appreciate, for example, their local media. they love their local paper. they appreciate their local anchors. they know them. they see them in the community. and they may even like the anchors on cnn, they even like -- they watch you. your viewers like you. they watch you.
so to attack broadly the media in the same way you don't attack somebody who buys ink by the barrel, you shouldn't be attacking the people who are bringing the citizens your policies, your words. it's just not a great strategy. >> thank you, governor. thank you, representative. i appreciate it. >> sure. >> see you guys soon. when we come right back, donald trump's plan to protect us from is whereis, what would n for refugees trying to escape oppression? if you have moderate to severe ulcerative colitis or crohn's, and your symptoms have left you with the same view,
it may be time for a different perspective. if other treatments haven't worked well enough, ask your doctor about entyvio, the only biologic developed and approved just for uc and crohn's. entyvio works by focusing right in the gi-tract to help control damaging inflammation and is clinically proven to begin helping many patients achieve both symptom relief as well as remission. infusion and serious allergic reactions can happen during or after treatment. entyvio may increase risk of infection, which can be serious. while not reported with entyvio, pml, a rare, serious brain infection caused by a virus may be possible. tell your doctor if you have an infection, experience frequent infections, or have flu-like symptoms, or sores. liver problems can occur with entyvio. if your uc or crohn's medication isn't working for you, ask your gastroenterologist about entyvio. entyvio. relief and remission within reach.
everyone talks about what happens when you turn sixty-five. but, really, it's what you do before that counts. see, medicare doesn't cover everything. only about eighty percent of part b medical costs. the rest is on you. consider an aarp medicare supplement insurance plan insured by unitedhealthcare insurance company. like all standardized medicare supplement insurance plans, it could really save you in out-of-pocket medical costs. so, call now and request this free decision guide. discover how an aarp medicare supplement plan could go long™ for you. do you want to choose your doctors? avoid networks? what about referrals? all plans like these let you visit any doctor or hospital that accepts medicare patients, with no networks and virtually no referrals needed. so, call now, request your free guide, and explore the range of aarp medicare supplement plans. sixty-five may get all the attention,
but now is a good time to start thinking about how you want things to be. go long™. donald trump's tough talk on isis help him with voters? here to discuss now, buck sexton,s cnn political cr contributor, angela rye, and bakari sellers, cnn political commentator and hillary clinton supporter. gang's all here. i don't have to separate you two in the studio, all right? buck, you first. i want to get your reaction. your take on donald trump's foreign policy speech and his plan for isis. let's listen. >> the time is overdue to develop a new screening test for the threats we face today.
i call it extreme vetting. i call it extreme, extreme vetting. our country has enough problems. we don't need more. these are problems like we've never had before. in addition to screening out all members of the sympathizers -- we must screen out those who have hostile attitudes to our country or believe sharia law should supplant american law. >> buck, how's that supposed to work? >> it's not clear on the deta details. extreme vetting to me is being a 30 something in new york on a first date. i don't know what he means by extreme vetting. there already is a vetting process if place for refugees. the question about how many refugees one would let in is
something both the cam rapaignse going to litigate. the strongest part of the speech is framing it as an issue akin to the cold war, fight against islamic radicalism has been to be fought of in a global scope, be taken with that sort of seriousness. there's a lot of places where there's agreement with allies and counterterrorism programs going forward. between the two campaigns. much of this is baked in -- >> just on this speech? >> that was specifically in this speech. he was saying this is sort of the new cold war. i would say this when people talk about trump's tough talk on isis and say it's all sort of bluster, i think there's a general perception whether it's a reality or not we can't know unless this actually happens. if there were a major terrorist attack on u.s. soil between now and election, it would benefit donald trump. that's because people have a belief or many people have a belief he takes this issue with more seriousness and has a better understanding of who the enemy is and how -- >> i'm going to get my other panelists in. andre, you now. he says it isn't just about
muslims, would apply to other countries. i mean, how -- is it the problem that refugees are often fleeing the oppression in countries like those who are the freedom of the united states? andre? >> donald trump had a good day today. he stayed on message today. he delivered a powerful speech. he's been well received by multitude of different media outlets. and he gave a vision. he talked about things that real americans are concerned with. he talked about being a tolerant society but they'd have to embrace our way of life. a new screening system. a vetting system. he talked about finding common ground with russia. much like the current administration's done with cuba. you know, do we want them to continually to be our enemy? i'd rather have them as at least someone we try to work with on certain issues. doesn't mean we have to always trust them. if they can help us fight isis, great, we need everybody we can. i thought he had a great vision today.
ideologically, he talked about condemning hatred, oppression, violence, of radical islam. i thought he was on message. i was real happy that he stayed on message. didn't veer off and delivered a good speech. >> bakari, why are you laughing at that? >> i mean, i think andre's comparison of cuba and russia is vastly off but feeds into this kind of ignorant view that donald trump has of the world. but to get to your point, to answer your question, when you talk about the christians that are being brutalized in syria and how they're fleeing that brutal oppression, they would not even be allowed in the united states of america under donald trump's plan. i think one of the most amazing things about his plan, about this whole new litmus test was he said we will find out more about this plan after i take the oath of office. that is not a plan. that is leaving all the details and all the nuances up in the air. i thought donald trump today was very, very dangerous. i mean, i think if we take a step back and say that tleat le he framed it as the cold war, framed it with some type of
world view that may be one step forward. the fact he wants to go at it alone, the fact he wants america to retreat, what it reminded me of was one of the darkest -- we sacrificed and suspended the constitution which is what donald trump wants us to do. >> he said you can't come in the country unless you agree with our values and agree with our principles. >> so a few things. one is there are people in this country right now who don't agree with some values and principles. he talked about, you know, muslim countries that are anti-lgbt. we have states that are just like that. his vice presidential candidate is just like that. has, you know, instituted laws in indiana just like that. and so i just wonder about the hypocrisy there. he also called out somalian -- >> hang on. he didn't issue laws for -- in some of those people -- >> they're anti-lgbt. i'm saying where on the spectrum is it okay? it's okay to discriminate against lgbt folks as long as you don't kill them.
none of that is okay. at some point you have to be responsible for your action. he talked about soma lirlians i minnesota. those types of things are the very basis, foundation for profiling in this country. he has to be responsible for his rhetoric. bakari's point, he said he once again saw dangerous donald trump today. donald trump was reckless. he talked about hillary clinton's physical stamina. you also saw sexist donald trump show up today. even though he was reading from a prompter, his message isn't one that resonates with me. >> stay with me. everyone, when we come right back, more headaches on hillary clinton with e-mails where the latest news hurt her with voters. fax.com show me minivans with no reported accidents. boom. love it.

i won this 55 inch tv for less than $30 on dealdash.com. visit dealdash.com for great deals. and start bidding today! buck sexton, angela rye, bakari sellers. bakari, rudy giuliani opened if donald trump and said something that has a lot of new yorkers doing a double take. a lot of americans. listen. >> under those eight years, before obama came along, we didn't have any successful radical islamic terrorist attack in the united states.
they all started when clinton and obama got into office. >> well, except for 9/11 the trump campaign clarified saying giuliani was referring to the time of 9/11 and before obama had been sworn into office and giuliani just talked about 9/11 right before that statement. what's your take on that, bakari? >> rudy giuliani also thought he was in ohio as well at the beginning of that speech. i don't want to necessarily hone in on rj religiudy giuliani and comments as much as i want to talk about the fact-free environment druonald trump and r surrogates. which makes your job and host jobs so difficult because you have to fact check instantaneously and you interview and talk to these people. what you saw today was donald trump in his speech and rj religi rudy giuliani, they tried to rewrite history. the fact donald trump and rudy giuliani can't stare the american public in the face and give a natural progression of history is very, very problematic. the fact-free america we're
living in is very dangerous. it's trump's new america. >> the fbi is going to hand over their interview notes from their meeting with hillary clinton over her e-mail use. they don't have a full script. just notes. i know bakari, you think there's nothing in these e-mails. as long as this story continues to dribble out, doesn't it hurt hillary clinton? >> it's the only arrow the republican party has. i think what you're starting to see is reince priebus, the house oversight committee, many of these house committees. keep her under the cloud of investigation throughout the campaign. that's the only hope they have to save down-ballot races. this is nothing more than a political ploy. if this is going to be leaked as we know it is, i hope they don't leak them part and parcel. i think it's a dangerous precedent. since we're here, let's at least let the american public see them all. >> is this the only you think fault that they can point to, buck, for hillary clinton? >> no, i think they can point to many things donald trump actually mentioned today in his speech as foreign policy
failures. specifically libya which she was a big advocate for. libya has turned out very poorly. if you look at a map of the middle east and pick out a country and look at it today versus what it looked like in, say, 2008, it's invariably worse than it was and that's a legacy of the obama administration and hillary clinton as secretary of state. this notion that somehow the e-mail is a democrat odge or din or this is just for politics, anybody with a security clearance, i would challenge anyone who has had one to come on the program and say that if you had sent 100 classified e-mails, you don't think your career would be over, wouldn't be stripped or your -- >> sent 100 classified e-mail. >> excuse me, there were 100 instances of -- the fbi director has said this. >> three. >> okay. let them answer to your thing. go ahead, bakari first then angela. >> bakari, hurry up. you've been filibustering. go ahead. >> i know. that's not true. there were three e-mails and partially marked and not marked correctly. you can't say there was 100 e-mails. >> let angela get in. >> this is nonsense. anybody with google can check
this. there were over 100 instances of classified information sent. this is what the fbi director said. >> buck, let them respond. go ahead. >> can't contend over this. >> buck, now you see the problem where you think something is true and know it to be true but the people on the thing, you don't think they believe you. >> that's not true. >> what you're saying is not true. it's actually more specific than that. i mean -- >> i'm giving a lecture on classification which i know -- >> there's more nuance to it. >> i'm very familiar. >> listen. here's the challenge. there were e-mails that became classified later. as you know, having a security clearance, we have something called overclassification in ki this country where things are overly classified and shouldn't be. there are things that become classified material later on. those are the e-mails you're referencing. the three not properly marked, yes, director comey said she should have known -- >> extremely careless. extremely careless. >> okay, buck.
you can yell over me the whole time if you want to but that does not make it right. so all i'm telling you is maybe they are not properly marked. that is what has been said. both by elijah cummings ranking on government reform and the n benghazi special committee. does that know she should have known? no. my point to you is this is a pointless -- >> it's not pointless. what she did is reckless. what she did is -- >> you going to continue to scream over me? >> i'm sitting here being filibustered on an issue -- >> you're not. the only person filibustering is you. >> you're the only person on the panel -- >> that would be a first. >> you have. you've spoken more than anybody else on the panel. >> my only thing is at some point we have to be responsible with taxpayer dollars. you all are normally the party of fiscal conservatism and continue to waste money on this because you're losing an election so abysmally. look at battleground poll after battleground poll and now you have this.
>> the fbi director said what she did was extremely careless. they were considering criminal charges up to possibly felony charges for what she did. this is not up for debate or discussion. bill clinton saying the fbi i e coming up with this out of nowhere is nonsense. i still haven't had an answer to this question, if they did what hillary clinton did, they would definitely be fired, definitely have their clearance stripped and worried about being criminally prosecuted and this woman who was secretary of state did all this and we shouldn't care, we should trust her with the nuclear codes, she knows what she's doing. >> isn't the -- >> you can't suspend rally. >> said the e-mail system is used on foreign soil and open to any kind of hacking. >> how many times -- she wasn't prosecuted. >> don, if i may. >> different than saying what she did is -- >> nobody said it was okay, but they've already -- they reprimanded her. so i don't know what else you want to happen. >> sit on the runway and meet with the attorney general. >> hang on. stand by. stand by. stand by. andre, go ahead.
andre has spoken the least. go ahead, andre. >> i said who else gets to have their husband days before sit on the runway and talk to the attorney general? i mean, they have an air of corruption, so many contacts within the government and this is why the people are frustrated. look. don't think hillary clinton is not scared. she cringes every time we talk about e-mails about like she cringes to hear what bill clinton was doing last weekend probably in las vegas. they know this is a smoking gun. they know there's a big problem there. that's why they continue to run from it because it is deception at the highest level and you're right. anyone else would be going to jail for the same thing. >> and you're running from one thing. one word for you tonight, andre, and buck, russia. deal with that. >> can we -- >> hey, if you want to talk russia, hillary clinton's taken more from russia than probably anyhistory. >> you know what, trump and pence put out a press release today quoting "the new york times" six times and you guys -- >> you say --
>> not be feisty -- >> we're going to talk about russia and everything else in the next hour. i am so over right now. all right. thank you, guys. we'll be right back. this car is traveling over 200 miles per hour. to win, every millisecond matters. both on the track and thousands of miles away. with the help of at&t, red bull racing can share critical information about every inch of the car from virtually anywhere. brakes are getting warm. confirmed, daniel you need to cool your brakes. understood, brake bias back 2 clicks. giving them the agility to have speed & precision. because no one knows & like at&t. real milk vs. almond milk protein show down
