tv   CNN Newsroom With Fredricka Whitfield  CNN  August 20, 2016 8:00am-9:01am PDT

8:00 am
8:01 am
j . it's 11:00, i'm martin savidge in for fredricka whitfield. we're going to begin with a campaign promise from donald trump. he told a crowd in diamond dale michigan that he will win 95% of the african-american vote once he's reelected in 2020. he also addressed black voters directly, pleading for their support. listen. >> i say it again, what do you have to lose? what do you have to lose. you're living in poverty, your schools are no good. you have no jobs. 58% of your youth is unemployed. what the hell do you have to
8:02 am
lose? >> i sense a new slogan. trump is going to be meeting with his national hispanic advisory council and the rnc. this out reach effort comes on the heels of a major campaign overhaul. chairman paul manafort is out. steve bannon is in. we already may be seeing sign posts of a campaign that has changed its strategy. cnn's chris frates is following the story from beginning to end. he joins me from washington. first, you know, were there many minorities that were in that crowd? let's talk about where do the polls stand right now when it comes to trump and black voters? >> it's all great questions because he's continuing this out reach to african-americans, as you ask, he's telling a mostly white crowd in a predominately white suburb that hillary clinton is taking black voters for granted. trump promised if he were to run for reelection he'd win 95% of
8:03 am
the black vote. that's a really, really tall order considering that president obama, the nation's first black president, only won 93% of the black vote in his reelection. and it's a particularly tough lift for donald trump. look at where he's starting from. a recent nbc wall street poll says support frump african-americans is 1%. trump's question of what the hell do blackvis have to lose w answered swiftly by the clinton campaign in a statement the clinton campaign said this, quote, donald trump asked what the african-american community has to lose by voting for him. the answer is everything. from a man who questioned the citizenship of the first african-american president, courts white supremacists and has been sued for housing discrimination against communities of color. trump painting the entire
8:04 am
community as living in poverty with no jobs continues to show he is completely out of touch with the african-american community. so the clinton campaign really not mincing any words there, martin. >> yeah, she has laid into him there. we'll check back with you later, thanks very much for that. let's talk some more about that. we'll do it with boris epistein, the senior advisor for the trump campaign. thank you for joining us. >> absolutely, good morning. >> trump has listed the problems with the african-american community. at least as he sees it. he didn't go into solutions. he's raised the issue of illegal immigration in his anti-clinton ads. do you think this is the right way to out reach to minorities? >> 100%. if you look at the black community, 26 million people are living in poverty. unemployment percentage is double of that of the white population. donald trump is saying the obama/clinton economy has failed
8:05 am
african-americans in this country. it's failed the inner cities. donald trump will be the one that creates jobs, that keeps american jobs safe. and that reinvigorates the inner cities. >> is it the fact that you say i will do this for you? that's enough to convince black voters? >> martin what's enough to convince them, if you look at the proposal on the tax brackets, simplified tax bracket, 15% corporate tax rate which would help those middle class business owners, it would help them reinvigorate the inner cities. proposal on immigration on keeping out low skilled workers. it will revitalize the inner cities and give african-americans hope back. 26 million african-americans living in poverty. that number should not be high. it's a failure by clinton and barack obama. >> why not make this outreach speech in a predominately african-american community with predominately a mixed audience?
8:06 am
>> as we go forward donald trump will be giving speeches all over the country. the key is not where you give the speech the key is who hears the speech. every speech he gives is heard all over the country because it's played on networks like this one. >> it's the reflection of your candidacy who makes up who sheppi helping, who is volunteering. >> there are african-americans on the campaign. americans vote based on the candidate. they want to hear ideas and why this candidate should be elected. donald trump is putting up specific ideas. the united states lost money because of nafta. donald trump will renegotiate nafta. >> i got it. his message you believe will resonate with the african-american community. all right. let me move on to another community, the hispanic advisory
8:07 am
council with whom trump is going to meet today. these are people who are already supporters, correct? >> people who he is meeting today are leaders in the hispanic american community. the discussion is how to make sure that donald trump's message is heard throughout that community. he's reaching out to all communities to make sure they know he's the one that will make america safe and will make america prosperous again. >> there is, of course, an anti-immigration theme that some have picked up from mr. trump. i'm wondering how does that fit in, then, for this particular group of people with whom he's meeting today? >> there's an anti-illegal immigrant. my family came here legally. he wants to make sure people are not here illegally. not committing murders in this country. that's what he wants to make sure we stop illegal immigration in this country. he's pro legal immigration. >> right. i agree. i have spoken to many in the
8:08 am
hispanic community. there are those who have come here as you point out illegally or have come in a way that is not considered the proper way. and then there are those who have been here for a long period of time and there is a divide politically there. >> that's right. >> how do you bridge that divide as a candidate? how do you try to reach through all? >> you don't have to reach to people who are here illegally, they can't vote. >> beyond that? is it just to say -- what specific campaign appeal does he make? what -- >> again, the appeal is on trade. on stopping illegal immigration. on jobs. on taxes. and of course on national security. these are specific policy issues policy points which he's putting out here. if you look at hillary clinton, she's putting out the same policies, same issues that she's been talking about for 30 years, but hasn't been successful at all.
8:09 am
she has not one success she can point to from her time in the senate. she was failed secretary of state. this country is worse off all over the world because hillary clinton was secretary of state. >> let's talk about the overhaul that's taken place inside the trump campaign. let's talk about the kellyanne cop way. she was formerly a republican pollster. she appeared all the time on cnn. you sound like from the primaries in april where conway herself called for trump to relax his tax returns. in fact, let's take a listen to this. >> i want to ask you about this alliance between john kasich and ted cruz. this alliance shall we say that donald trump is calling collusion. are they playing by the rules? >> absolutely. completely transparent. donald trump's tax returns aren't. i'd likes to though be transparent. >> what do you think of this change that has taken place? is she going to change him or is
8:10 am
this campaign going to change her? >> the change is wonderful. kellyanne conway is somebody who is experienced with politics, knows the folks d.c. steve bannon is a leader in media and business. the change is exciting. donald trump is an agile leader. he's someone who valued vision. this is a visionary team to bring the campaign across the finish line to win on november 8th. >> all right. one last question. she's also hinted that trump may be giving an immigration speech next week. i'm wondering if you can preview the talking points? >> donald trump is going to be talking about all issues as this campaign moves forward. donald trump is for insuring that americans who are here legally, citizens of this country and legal immigrants to this country keep the jobs that are here. we prevent folks coming here illegally from hurting americans. murdering americans. donald trump will make sure that that's the case. he'll make sure america is protected in terms of the economy and security.
8:11 am
>> reporter: those are the points you believe he'll be making? >> when you hear the speech i am sure you'll be impressed. we'll have you back, thank you. still ahead, switching to another subject, the cdc offering a major warning to pregnant women. officials are urging them to avoid travel to another part of south florida because of zika. we'll have that update coming up. louisiana has a tough road ahead for recovery. what is in store for the battered state. is the deadly flooding over? we'll get a live update from the ground next. i am totally blind. i lost my sight in afghanistan. if you're totally blind, you may also be struggling with non-24. calling 844-844-2424. or visit
8:12 am
i'm hall of famer jerry west and my life is basketball. but that doesn't stop my afib from leaving me at a higher risk of stroke. that'd be devastating. i took warfarin for over 15 years until i learned more about once-daily xarelto... a latest generation blood thinner. then i made the switch. xarelto® significantly lowers the risk of stroke in people with afib not caused by a heart valve problem. it has similar effectiveness to warfarin.
8:13 am
warfarin interferes with vitamin k and at least six blood clotting factors. xarelto® is selective targeting one critical factor of your body's natural clotting function. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking you may bruise more easily, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. to help protect yourself from a stroke, ask your doctor about xarelto.
8:14 am
there's more to know. xarelto. that can camp out in between our teeth, if we'll let it. use gum® brand. soft-picks®. proxabrush® cleaners. flossers and dental floss. gum® brand. you name is and chances the people in southern louisiana have lost it. the flooding there is now
8:15 am
considered to be america's worst natural disaster since superstorm sandy. and there is more rain, unfortunately, in the forecast. a preliminary analysis reveal stunning numbers. more than 110,000 homes at a combined value of $20.7 billion are located in the flooded areas. and then listen to this, only 15% of all the homes in that area have flood insurance. polo sandoval joins me from ascension parish. at least the sun is out but there is a tremendous amount of water behind you. is it getting better or where do we stand? >> reporter: for some, at least, i would add to some of those sobering statistics and tell you after spending several days here and speaking to people in southern louisiana, some who have been here for perhaps 60 days, others 60 years, they will tell you they have never seen this kind of flooding, much less been affected by it. as you just pointed out, you're
8:16 am
seeing still neighborhoods at least partially submerged over a week since that rain swept through the area here. for the folks who live in this part of louisiana, they are still waiting to make their way into their home to see what, if anything, was actually salvaged. as the waters recede they leave behind a terrible putrid smell. and also wide spread devastation which is why the road to recovery will be a very long and difficult one. many people here have obviously lost material items. sadly at least 13 people died during the flooding. they have lost loved ones. there's one story that also stand out for me, martin, actually two miles from where i'm standing right now. a woman named yvette who has a cemetery on her property where she has laid her loved ones to rest, the flood waters saturated the ground. some of the vaults that contained the caskets of her loved ones, essentially floated up out of the ground and then floated away.
8:17 am
so what i witnessed a couple y days ago, keeping our cameras at a distance out of respect. she said that yes, people are searching for what they've lost. for her, it's about searching for those she loved. and so we are seeing here is a very difficult moment for many people here in louisiana. whether they were weren't direct directly affected or people who are helping. there say high hope a presidential visit will shed a brighter spotlight on what people are still experiencing here. martin? >> you know, i've covered just about -- i have covered every natural disaster there is known. flooding though, is probably the worst when it comes to recovery. because it is so difficult and so slow. federal government help, are you seeing it? >> reporter: fema funds is really what a lot of people will be turning to. we know that at least 87,000 people have actually filed
8:18 am
requests for assistance. we're getting word that federal food stamps will be made available for those individuals who want to get their hands on something to eat. as one national guardsman told me a few days ago, the demand for food and water is as great as what we saw during hurricane katrina. >> thank you very much for that update on the ground there. president obama will be in louisiana on tuesday. meanwhile, to find out how you can help victims of the flooding there, you can go to tomorrow on state of the union, louisiana governor john bel edwards will join jake tapper to talk more about the flooding, the nation's response and what's ahead as the state e begins to rebuild. that interview will be at 9:00 a.m. eastern here on cnn. coming up a new zika virus warning in the u.s.? health officials are advising pregnant women to avoid another area in south florida. we'll have those details next. this is the summer.
8:19 am
the summer of this. the summer that summers from here on will be compared to. get out there. find hotels at up to 50% off and more ways to save at
8:20 am
8:21 am
the oil companies pollute our air. putting their... ...profits ahead of our kids' health. now they're trying to weaken california's clean air laws. i'm tom steyer. we've had a million kids get asthma. we need to send the oil companies a message. tell your legislator to stand up to the oil companies and protect our clean air laws. don't let the oil companies put their profits... ...ahead of our kids.
8:22 am
pregnant women are being warned against traveling to certain areas of miami-dade county. officials are reporting there are new cases of non-travel related zika virus in florida. that brings the total number of locally transmitted zika cases
8:23 am
to at least 35. cnn's senior medical correspondent elizabeth cohen joins us from miami beach. elizabeth, nice to see you. i know you've spoken to local residents. and i'm wondering what are they telling you? how do they feel? >> reporter: the pregnant local residents are worried. i'm in south beach in one of the two so-called zika zones where it's spreading locally. you don't have to leave the area in order to get it. what pregnant women are saying according to the obstetricians that are treating me. the obstetricians say they're calm. the people are doing okay. in general they're worried, they're spraying bug spray a lot. they're covering up which is tough in the heat. but that's what they should be doing. some pregnant women are so nervous they're barricading themselves in their homes. a few women have gone so far as to actually leave the area and they intend to live out the rest of their pregnancies in another
8:24 am
area. >> we know of course this is a huge tourist area. i'm wondering if people have travelled there recently, is it okay to get pregnant? where do we stand on that medically speaking? >> reporter: right. doctors tell me they are getting that question a lot. i mean, this place is tourist central. luckily there's an easy answer to that question. your immune system gets rid of zika pretty quickly and easily. if a woman has been in this area, she goes back home and wants to get pregnant. authorities say she should wait a month or so before getting pregnant. by then the zika will be out of her system and shouldn't be a threat. >> all right,ly we'll continue track the story through you. still to come, donald trump has been enlisting pair of conservative executives for his campaign. could there be something else in
8:25 am
the works after the election, a media empire maybe?
8:26 am
8:27 am
8:28 am
good morning, nice to see you. i'm martin savidge in for fredricka whitfield. donald trump may be courting battle ground voters this weekend, but trump already may be looking past the white house and on to the possibility of building a media empire. it's an idea some say may be gaining steam. the atlantic writes, what if tuesday november 8th marks not an end for donald trump but the beginning of a phase two in launching an effort of some kind of media juggernaut that challenges fox news for supremacy on the right across all platforms. and this from an op-ed in the la times, trump has recruited ailes and bannon to lay the groundwork for his back up plan.
8:29 am
a new career as a right wing media personality. this is fascinating stuff. let's talk about this with professor at princeton university and co-author of the the op-ed. and host of reliable sources brian skelter and senior editor at the atlantic, ron brownstein. how feasible is this? because it just -- when i read this, it was like, holy cow. do you see this as a real end game for donald trump? >> i'm not sure it's all planned out. i'm sure it's in the works. this is a response to his bringing on an executive from breitbart news. a response to the fact he comes from the world of the media through his reality show, and he has crafted a campaign that resolves around the media. he is in a difficult position in terms of the election. and we really do believe that if he loses, this would be a very
8:30 am
viable path forward. how he does it, we don't know, a tv station, online presence, but this would be a natural way to continue with the political campaigning that he seems to enjoy. >> ron, are we planting a seed here or when you look at who is currently running the trump campaign, ex fox news ceo roger ailes, steve bannon does this possibility make more sense? >> it does. i mean, it's a reminder to me how much trump and trumpism is a reflection of a civil war and shift in the balance of power inside the republican party. go down a long list of issues on which he's reversing decades in some cases of republican priorities on global engagement, on trade, on entitlements, and i think it is also a reminder his base is the media. there are very few elected officials in the republican party who kind of sign on to the full range of trumpism as it's defined. it's core support, it's core
8:31 am
support. i think it could be very logical and ominous for a mitch mcconnell or paul ryan if drump -- donald trump is not elected president, he could be a voice in the republican party that guaranteed conflict with the power base. how would the chamber of commerce react to a trump style? >> i've been on the campaign trail and spoken to a lot of trump supporters, if he does not win you've got this huge dissatisfied audience and these are the people he could immediate immediately cater to. >> starting a network from the ground up, that's incredibly difficult thing to do. >> it's getting harder and harder every single year.
8:32 am
cable operators the people that deliver cnn in to their home. they don't want more channels. it would be hard for trump to get on cable. it would be hard for him to launch a streaming service. sarah palin tried that and it folded within a year. the ceo of the company that ran pa pa pa palin's service said donald trump could be successful. it is difficult but feasible. t"the new york times" reported that advisors have looked to a media investment. what does trump do if he loses, where does he go? i don't think anybody expects him to go go quietly into the night the way al going or john mccain did after they lost. how does he empower his supporters? >> this is another reason why this seems to make some sense. >> i think it's a very interesting point brian makes. there is no question there is an
8:33 am
audience for the set of views that donald trump has put forward. he's demonstrated there is a big piece of the republican coalition this anti-immigrant, anti-global and older white blue collar coalition. there is very little institutional support. there are very few elected officials that will be advocating trumpism after he loses. not only could this be a media play, this could be the kind of the cornerstone of an effort to continually shift the party in that direction and speak to those voters. it's not clear what other institutions in the republican party other than a few hosts on fox would continue to raise the trump torch. >> you're saying trump 2020 would start -- >> trump comes to this with a lot of expertise in the media. she did not have that. so he knows how this institution works. he is very good at it. say what you will about the rest of his campaign, he has proven
8:34 am
himself to be effective. he would be going into some kind of operation with a lot of knowledge and savvy. >> right. i believe, you know, who would fear this most is paul ryan and the establishment republican party. they're the ones who would have the most difficult time with this. >> i just wonder just to be devil's advocate. you and i have great jobs on cable news. does donald trump want to be a television host if he loses the election. it might field kind of small. i'm throwing it out there. >> i suppose he is the head of the network, but it's not like he's the entire voice all the time. i presume he'll hire people who are like minded. >> sean hannity. >> julian's point, if donald trump loses the election, he will have lost this election and kind of the mix of views he has put forward will have shown to be short of a majority of the country. think of this from the point of view of the republican party after an election potentially in which trumpism falls way short.
8:35 am
you could then have a voice continually pushing the party in that direction after its limits had just been demonstrated. that is a very kind of ominous prospect. again, one that speaks to portion of their coalition will make it hard together manage that aftermath is donald trump loses and this is the way he responds. >> we were talking about the the problem of getting on cable. this is actually getting on the internet. on top of this with breitbart he's got a multiflat form bed so to speak. >> that's true. if donald trump wanted to launch a facebook live channel today he could do it today over at trump tower, he'd have millions of viewers on his channel. he wouldn't make a lot of money off of it but would have influence from it. it comes down to what does he want? if he does not win, does he care about making a profit or having political power. does he want to think ahead to 2020 or 2024. the choices he makes after november 8th will tell us a lot about what he wants in the years
8:36 am
to come. >> look what he's done with twitter. he's used twitter to build a whole campaign around it. we shouldn't under estimate the way he can see opportunity. >> this is all only if he does lose. we'll see. >> right. right. we'll see. thank you very much. great conversation. talk to you again, thanks. still ahead the international olympic committee now setting up a disciplinary commission to investigate ryan lochte and his three other teammates following that controversy in rio. what one of the swimmers is now revealing about what happened. it's pretty interesting. stay here. ns. where we explore. protecting biodiversity. everywhere we work. defeating malaria. improving energy efficiency. developing more clean burning natural gas. my job? my job at exxonmobil? turning algae into biofuels. reducing energy poverty in the developing world. making cars go further with less. fueling the global economy.
8:37 am
and you thought we just made the gas. ♪ energy lives here. youthat's why you drink ensure. sidelined. with 9 grams of protein and 26 vitamins and minerals. for the strength and energy to get back to doing... ...what you love. ensure. always be you.
8:38 am
8:39 am
8:40 am
the international olympic committee is announcing it set up a disciplinary commission to investigate that incident involving ryan lochte and the other u.s. swimmers in rio. lochte could be suspended from u.s. swimming organizations as international committee decides whether the swimmeres should fae punishment over this. the debate continues whether the olympic swimmers were robbed at this gas station. moments after at least one of those swimmers vandalized the business. in a newly released statement that comes from lochte's teammate, that's gunner bentz, he gives a very different account. he says ryan pulled to the ground a framed metal advertisement that was loosely
8:41 am
anchored to the brick wall. in the statement he admits members of the team urinated on the side of the building. brazilian police say that behavior is what prompted an armed security guard to order them to pay for damages. lochte maintained he was held at gunpoint and robbed. let's bring in christine brennan, she's live in report. and also philip holloway. let me start with you, christine. what can you tell us about the suspension? >> i'm sorry i couldn't hear you, about the what? >> suspension or talk of possible suspension. >> oh. sorry yes. from rio to you, it's an interesting connection, my apologies. yes, what we're certainly hearing and i've been reporting is that usa swimming, the usoc will take some action at some point. that could be many, many weeks down the road. they usually act very quickly
8:42 am
they suspended michael phelps for a few weeks for taking a picture with a marijuana pipe. what we don't know about what happened is also concerning everyone. we don't know if gunner bentz if it's true he pulled down that sign and there were other things you mentioned. so that's the kind of behavior we might accept that high school or college pranks in the united states. representing the united states at an olympic games is a whole different matter. and that is why the u.s. olympic committee and usa swimming are taking this so incredibly seriously. >> of course. do you think that this would impact any chance for lochte to say in the tokyo games? >> well, martin, he's 32. i don't know a lot of people
8:43 am
have said that this behavior is alarming for anyone, much less someone who is 32 years old. i'm guessing many of us can agree on that. he's 32. he had the gold medal from the games in the relay but he was not at his peak. my aspect just guessing it would be hard for ryan lochte to return four years from now. although he certainly could. if he's suspended, when he's suspended, when there's punishment when there's something that happens to him and interrupts his career, which i believe is going to happen, and i've written in usa today that we are expecting that at some point. that makes it a little harder. i don't think it's not like he was on top of the world and she peaked a previous olympic games. athletically i think it would be hard for him to return. he is one of the greatest
8:44 am
swimmers in the world i would never count him out. >> thank you. phil, let me turn to you. he's apologized, come out on twitter and given a statement. i'm wondering now, do you think it's possible that the officials down in rio, the city police are going to move forward and press charges? >> they can try but they're never going to get him back in rio unless he goes voluntarily. under the u.s. extradition treaty with brazil, the crime, the offense of making a false police report doesn't rise to the level of severity required to trigger the clause in the extradition treaty. i don't think they'll get him back unless he chooses to go back. i don't think they're going to let this go. speaking of his apology, what he's apologizing for is the public indecency, misdemeanor trespassing and other petit misdemeanor offenses these guys were foolishly involved in. that being said he's not apologizing for what he feels like was a robbery. in the u.s., from our
8:45 am
perspective, if you take the guns that we now now were displayed. they were pointed and we know these security guards or whatever they were said you're going to have to give us money before you can leave. in this country, that would at a minimum be armed robbery, if not false imprisonment. aggravated assault and a whole host of other things. he's maintaining his position that he was robbed, at least from his perspective. >> if they hadn't done the steps prior to that there would be no security guard to begin with. >> correct. they didn't report this to the police. what got this whole thing started he reported it to his mother. i'm sure he left out those details. and then his mother went on television or on the radio i guess and the media got it picked up and -- >> but he did go to nbc. and he, you know, he described this very dramatic moment of a gun pointed or even placed to his head. >> yes. >> can you be charged for lying to media? >> no, it's not against the law to lie to nbc.
8:46 am
>> we get a lot of people locked up. >> it's not against the law to lie to your mother but it's not a good idea, i think we can all agree about that. when he gave a statement to the police, in the u.s., if you make a false statement to the police, that can a crime. falsely reporting a crime is a crime. as i said, false report of crime in brazil does not rise to the level of severity for extradition. >> i'm sure we haven't heard the last of this. still to come a massive fire in california. it's forcing thousands of people from their communities. we're going to check in the situation there as the fire has destroyed nearly 100 homes and also an iconic piece of history on route 66. we'll be right back.

earlier we were talking about flooding in louisiana. in california, southern california in particular, it's just the opposite. it's drought and now the aftereffects of that. the blue cot fire has destroyed nearly 100 homes and blackened almost 40,000 acres. also lost in the flames, a route 66 landmark, the summit inn visited by stars like elvis presley and john wayne. >> the wine rack and a lot of
8:51 am
other stuff, old gum ball machine over there. >> cecil stephens, long time owner of the summit inn before he sold it a month ago can't believe this fire torched his hard life's work. >> it makes me sick. i know every light switch, every pipe. after 50 years you've had to repair half of that stuff. >> a half century of owning a favorite hangout on route 66. he shut down the motel in 1966 and focused on the food and the history of the fabled route from chicago to the pacific ocean. cecil and his wife became the mom and pop of a nostalgia stop for locals obsessed with both. >> there's many times i stood at the bar having coffee when it was snowing and just said i'm not going to work. >> smolders tales of these ashes have it that celebrities rolled
8:52 am
in too, including elvis presley. he saw that the jukebox didn't offer a single one of his records nks he stood back and kicked the jukebox lightly and said next time when i come back in here you'll have one of my records in here. i went out and got a record right away. >> music sar nated generations of people with everything from to the hillbilly burger. >> sour bogue bred with hamburger, lettuce, tomato, onion. >> it was a meal. >> a meal in itself. >> perhaps the good omen, the summit inn sign still stands and the new owners plan to rebuild and try to recapture every charming inch of cecil stephen's american treasure.
8:53 am
fires and floods aren't the only things in the news. let's take a look at the stop stories. a fugitive is behind bars after attempting to fool police with, take a look at this elaborate disguise. police in massachusetts said 31-year-old sean miller was posing as an old man where they raided the house where they suspected the drug doerl was staying. they pulled off his disguise and placed him under arrest. stuff talking arizona sheriff joe arpaio could be facing criminal judges. a federal judge asked the u.s. attorney's office to file charges against him saying he failed to follow intersections in a case. he is ie ai kused of violating an order to prevent their department from profiling that teen noes. still to come, it was the question of the week that dominated the political headlines and social media as well. we'll take a look at what it all means next.
