5:00 am
the country upset in a new york city primary. joe crowley the fourth ranking democrat in the house once seen as a possible house speaker he was beaten and beaten badly in his district. the upset winner, first time candidate just 28 years old, supported by the democratic socialists of america, she ran to the far left in this race so what does that tell you about where the energy is in the democratic party and its chances in november. other big results overnight. mitt romney picked up the republican nomination in utah and the candidates the president specifically supported they prevailed. a federal judge in california issuing a nationwide injunction to stop the trump administration from separating families at the border. families be reunited within 30 days unless there's a child under the age of 5 who is separated, the reunification must happen within two weeks. we've also learned from hhs, six
5:01 am
children of the more than 2,000 who remain separated have been reunited with their parents. only six. we'll begin our coverage with this election. david chalian is here with us in the studio. >> it really was an earthquake inside the democratic party last night in that new york 14th congressional district out in queens and the bronx. here's the big winner of the night. first time candidate, 28 years old and really representing the insurgent progressive liberal wing inside the party. this is a story of what's going on inside determine party politics. it's a story of generational change, racial and demographic change and ideological change inside the party as well. by the way, she didn't just win in a squeaker, she won big. 57% to 42%, 15 points she defeated the number four democrat in the house of representatives, somebody talked about as a potential speaker of the house. here's the warning sign. if you are part of the old guard
5:02 am
democratic establishment of the previous generation, be wear. there's a new grassroots lishlg liberal energy inside the party. donald trump had a pretty good night last night too. he had big wins in south carolina. henry mcmaster one the gubernatorial runoff with 54% of the vote. donald trump was down there campaigning. mike pence was down there over the weekend. mcmaster was one of donald trump's earliest supporters. dan donovan he got donald trump support even though voted against his tax cut and he soundly defeated michael grim, 64% to 36%. grimm former congressman but also former ex-con just out of jail and trying to make a comeback. that political baggage was too much for him to carry. ben jealous, former head of the naacp beat bernie sanders
5:03 am
supporters and he emerges a ten-point win there in a crowded democratic field and mitt romney, the 2012 republican nominee for president is now likely to be headed to the united states senate. he wins his republican primary in utah big time. 72% to 28%. of course, every one's going to be watch to go see if and when romney does get to washington, is he going to be a big trump critic, take on the president from inside his party or is he going to go along to get along. >> 24 years after first running for senate in massachusetts, might be finally headed to the senate from utah. i actually went to sleep last night and when i woke up and saw the primary results, my reaction was, oh, my. now i do not know if nancy pelosi went to sleep. i do not know if democratic leaders in washington went to sleep or andrew cuomo in albany, if they woke up or sometime in the middle of the night they said oh, my. >> when someone called to wake
5:04 am
them up and say, you need to see this. >> jeffrey toobin and josh green join us now. if you nancy pelosi and john avalon and andrew cuomo this morning after you say oh, my, what's going through your head? >> that's probably the g rated version of what they said. you cannot take your primaries for granted if you are an establishment democrat, even if you're doing the political work you think you need to do, are you good fit for your district, do you have the energy and enthusiasm. grassroots behind you because the energy in the democratic party is with the sons and daughters right now. it means nancy pelosi, while she's probably pretty well positioned within her party, the energy is to the left and this candidate who beat joe crowley. he was no longer a good fit for the district. she did run on authenticity, working class roots and sense of community and she's an inspiring figure in congress going forward. >> she didn't just run on her identity and i think it's
5:05 am
important to talk about the issues that she ran on. she ran on medicaid for all, expanding health care, not obamacare, but medicare. much closer to a single-payer system. that's a popular idea, not just on the left. lowering or eliminating tuition for college, that's a popular idea. these are ideas that people need to take seriously, not just the candidates. >> she also ran on abolishing i.c.e. obviously an especially hot topic in this climate as we're talking so much about this -- we are seeing more democrats -- maybe not fully endorse that but they're starting to talk about it a lot more and talk about it in a more encouraging ways showing they're moving that way. >> absolutely and clearly donald trump is the person forcing that change in the democratic party. if you look just in the last two weeks at poll numbers among democrats the issue of immigration has shot up near the
5:06 am
top of issues most important to democrats and i think that's why messages like cortez is resonated. >> she went to the border. >> yes, exactly. >> days before her primary which is in new york city, she goes to the border. >> they should start a democratic shuttle plane or something down to the border. every serious national democratic politician is now going to want to go down there and visit the border. what should nancy pelosi worry about? i think that what incumbent demilitarized zone ought to worry about is the fact that joe crowley didn't run as a centrist. he adjusted his position and moved to the left and still got beat by a 28-year-old upstart. >> that's a lot. that's where i want to disagree with jeffrey and jeffrey did run on issues but she embraced more than you usually see because generational candidates who are running on that, candidates who want to highlight gender or racial issues, they don't highlight it explicitly. she did.
5:07 am
i'm 28 years old. there's a generational choice here in the democratic party, i'm going to say it outloud and own it. >> and but remember, too, what kind of district this is in queens spread out over queens and the bronx. i think it's only 20% white any more this district. 40% hispanic, significantly asian as well as african-american. that i think -- that's a great message for that district. not every district where democrats are running is going to look like that. if the democrats retake the house of representatives, it's going to be because they win in the suburbs outside philadelphia and pittsburgh. those are very different districts and i'm not sure the same message will resonate in the same way. >> it won't. one of the flow throughs is, running candidates that are better fit for your district. she's a much better fit for her district in terms of age,
5:08 am
demographics and politics, running as a working class mother. conor lamb is a better fit for his district. both parties moving further to the polls. we've had asymmetric polarization for a while. if it's a choice of the party of trump and sanders, you're going to have homeles folks and people trying to bring people together. >> you point out conor lamb, we talk about cortez. it is really important to remember that while the democrats have not come to a common message beyond going against donald trump at this point, they need to also remember that the local messages are what really matters. >> they are. the commonality among races in purple to red district like lamb's in pennsylvania and cortez's which is bright blue in new york is that you have candidates that fit the district. the common thread here is youth and the idea of a new generation. both of these candidates are young. we've seen a lot of young
5:09 am
candidates especially young women in democratic primaries really overperforming and to me that says the generation of leaders in their 70s and 80s like pelosi and hoyer are on their last legs, whether or not the democrats win back the house, we might have a speaker challenge, they'll be off the stage pretty soon and a new generation of democratic leaders is coming up. >> i do want to ask you about this federal court ruling. the judge who ruled that the administration must reunite the separated children with their parents within the next 15 days if they're younger than five, 30 days if they're older than 5 years old and this judge writing, that under the present system, migrant children are not accounted for with the same efficiency as property. >> it's really an extraordinary ruling not least because it comes from a george w. bush appointee in san diego. the magnitude of the problem we are only really beginning to
5:10 am
understand, it's more than 2,000 children, they are spread out not across the border, they are spread out across the whole country so the idea of reunifying them, even if the administration is operating in good faith, which it's not clear it is, would be an enormous -- is going to be an enormous challenge. how this judge responds to the failure to comply with his order, which the government almost certainly will fail because as you've been pointing out all morning, six families have been reunified out of more than 2,000. this has been a complete fiasco. there doesn't seem to be any way all 2,000 will be reunited within 15 or 30 days. the legal part of this fight, which has been mostly in the media and political, the legal part of this fight is just now being joined and it is going to be an ugly and lengthy matter.
5:11 am
>> one of our own security advisers of course has experience with the department of homeland security. she was pointing out that, look, seven days should be enough time to at least start to get some sort of planning, some sort of infrastructure in place so that you actually do know where these children are so that they're more well accounted for than property is and that is the glaring, gaping hole we see, john. not only can we not get any answers, it's not clear there is an answer in terms of how they would fulfill this order from the judge. >> it requires expertise in, you know, governing and we've got chaos and incompetence and callusness but that critical mixture, we have not been keeping receipts for children. the government is not keeping track of children the way they do property and that is an outrage. >> i didn't want to let you go about whether predicting we would see a supreme court vacancy. anthony kennedy could choose to retire. >> today is the last day of the
5:12 am
term and it's traditional, although not required, that on the last day justices announce if they're leaving. obviously anthony kennedy is 81 years old. clarence thomas is 70 years old and there is certainly a possibility he might leave. those who know don't tell, those who tell don't know. so it beats the hell out of me. >> taking a firm stand. jeffrey toobin, thank you very, very much. we do want to update you. cnn has learned the east pittsburgh officer who's accused of shooting and killing this young man has been arrested and charged with criminal homicide. cnn's athena jones is live in pittsburgh with more. what more do we know about these charges? >> reporter: right now all we know is that the charge criminal homicide. we know the officer was arrested and fingerprinted this morning.
5:13 am
he is expected to have a preliminary hearing next friday, july 6th. we'll learn more details from the allegheny county district attorney when he briefs the media at 11:00. that's when we expected to learn more about these specific charges. this is exactly what the family of ant wwon rose has been demanding and the protesters who have been taking to the streets have been demanding. they put the pressure on the district attorney and these charges having been announced. this is something that the protesters welcome. they've gotten support from other city and state officials like the mayor who said he wanted to see a jury trial from a state representative who told me if law enforcement wants to build trust with the community they have to show willingness to discipline their own. we have reaction coming in from ant wwon rose's family attorney this is what he tweeted. michael rose feld has been charged with criminal homicide. this is a small stride toward justice. we have a very long road ahead.
5:14 am
now that these charges have been brought, we'll learn more about it later and we'll see what develops. >> thanks so much. coming up for us, peter strzok, the fbi agent so involved with both the hillary clinton email and russia investigation testifies behind closed doors. we'll speak to a member of congress who will be in that room in just a few hours.
5:15 am
needles. essential for the cactus, but maybe not for people with rheumatoid arthritis. because there are options. like an "unjection™". xeljanz xr. a once-daily pill for adults with moderate to severe ra for whom methotrexate did not work well enough. xeljanz xr can reduce pain, swelling and further joint damage, even without methotrexate. xeljanz xr can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections, lymphoma and other cancers have happened. don't start xeljanz xr if you have an infection. tears in the stomach or intestines, low blood cell counts and higher liver tests and cholesterol levels have happened. your doctor should perform blood tests before you start and while taking xeljanz xr, and monitor certain liver tests. tell you doctor if you were in a region where fungal infections are common and if you have had tb, hepatitis b or c, or are prone to infections. needles. fine for some things.
5:16 am
but for you, one pill a day may provide symptom relief. ask your doctor about xeljanz xr. an "unjection™". ask your doctor no one thought much of itm at all.l people said it just made a mess until exxonmobil scientists put it to the test. they thought someday it could become fuel and power our cars wouldn't that be cool? and that's why exxonmobil scientists think it's not small at all. energy lives here. richard: oh! ernie: was that too hard for yo? richard: no. is this too hard for you? ernie: woo! we're playing catch now! richard: ugh! ernie: sorry, sorry, sorry !
5:17 am
sometime within the next
5:18 am
hour, peter strzok will arrive on capitol hill. strzok is the fbi agent who is in the middle of the hillary clinton email investigation, in the middle of the russia investigation until he was let go, he was named repeatedly in the inspector general report and it did suggest that he sent out many anti-donald trump texts and it also said that he perhaps acted with some bias as part of that investigation. joining us now to talk about this, a man who will be part of that hearing later today eric swalwell. thanks so much for being with us. >> good morning, john. >> this hearing's closed. why can't we all hear from peter strzok today? i imagine what he has to say would be of great interest to the american people. >> you should be able to hear from him today, yi agree, john. peter strzok had asked for this meeting to be open so let's lay that squarely at the feet of chairman bob goodlatte. if we take a step back, john, this hearing is a colossal waste
5:19 am
of time. this is the committee that's responsible for immigration policy in america. we have 2,000 kids who have not been reunited with their parents and this committee believes that it's most important duty right now at this hour in america is to go back and revisit hillary clinton's emails. that's a real shame. that's putting our priorities in the wrong direction. >> look, we've been talking about immigration all morning but the idea that this hearing is a waste of time, peter strzok was in the middle of that email investigation, he obviously connected to the russian investigation as well and it came up repeatedly in the inspector general report there are questions that need to be posed to him, correct? >> absolutely, john, and i'm not defending anything he said. i'm former prosecutor, my brother are cops, married to cops, cops shouldn't act that way and he should be held accountable for that. he was one of many investigators and john, peter strzok did not tell donald trump jr. or paul manafort to meet with the russians. he didn't tell donald trump to stand on a stage and invite the
5:20 am
russians to keep hacking and he didn't tell michael cohen to try and do a deal in moscow for trump tower during the primary. so there's a lot of conduct that the trumps did that's not related at all to peter strzok. >> he it none of those things but he did send very provocative texts which did suggest, you know, i will not let donald trump be elected president and the inspector general said he could not rule out the possibility that bias did factor in during the end of the hillary clinton email investigation. what questions do you have for him? >> i want to make sure that, again, none of his biases did effect the investigation, but also would love to learn more about other evidence out there that did exist about the trump campaign and their concerning contacts with russians. i hope my republican colleagues just as they're open to hearing about the peter strzok texts about donald trump are just as
5:21 am
open to hearing about the independent evidence of donald trump and his team so willing and eager work with russia so we can get our priorities straight there and understand that we have a lot more to learn if we're going to protect the ballot box. >> strzok says he will not plead the fifth. maybe he does want to get that message out. i can't help but notice you're younger democrat in the house of representatives. >> i don't know, john. i've got a 1-year-old who's graying me every day. >> however, alexandria cortez, 28-year-old upset joe crowley overnight in a democratic primary here in new york city. he was the number four democrat in the house of representatives. what message should that send to democratic leadership in washington? >> well, congratulations to alexandria cortez and we're going to miss joe crowley. i don't know if you saw to show unity he played his guitar and
5:22 am
dedicated a song to her. i've seen about 60 candidates across the country who are under the age of 40 and they are bursts of new energy, ideas and much needed confidence. they're running for congress in the toughest districts and i think they're going to provide reinforcements to the group i lead called future form which is our 28 youngest members. it's going to need all of that and more if we're going to grow paychecks, bring down health care costs and end the corrupting influence of government and money. >> did you need generational change at the top of your party in washington? >> we need change in the house of representatives. i started this group to start to bring that and i'm excited that we'll have a 28-year-old, someone almost ten years younger than me coming to congress and a lot more like her -- >> should nancy pelosi, stenny hoyer be nervous waking up this morning? >> no, they shouldn't be nervous. they have invited me to the table, i sit at the leadership table, john, i'm the youngest one on the team and i stand up
5:23 am
for millennials and their concerns about climate change, racial and politics and that's happening. >> do you have concerns that the victory here in new york city could somehow pull the party to the left and raise questions about electability going forward? >> no. i think this seat was a very progressive seat and i've been just recently in iowa, in texas, i was in tulsa over the weekend -- >> iowa? you have anything you want to tell us? >> i was born there. we've got a 28 -- 29-year-old in eastern iowa, she's running, she's a two term state legislator, daughter of a pipe fitter, first in her family to go to college, represents what we're seeing across the country, people stepping up for their community. >> no one just goes to iowa. no one just goes to iowa ever in politics. >> we'll talk about that after november. >> i do want to ask you about 2,047 children still separated by their parents, these children were separated by the u.s. government. only six have been returned in the last week.
5:24 am
how can that be? >> it's just wrong. it's sickening to think about children who every day go to bed not knowing where mom or dad or their aunt or uncle who brought them here are. we should make that our priority today as we debate immigration. we shouldn't do anything on immigration until we have a plan to reunite those children. >> eric swalwell from democrat, great to have you here this morning. >> just to visit family, john. >> no one ever just goes to iowa. iowa happens to be lovely but if you're an elected official you never just go to iowa. >> the president waging war with harley-davidson. stay with us. with expedia's add-on advantage, booking a flight unlocks discounts on select hotels until the day you leave for your trip. add-on advantage. only when you book with expedia.

5:28 am
. few companies feel as iconic as american harley-davidson. the motorcycle maker says its moving production overseas to avoid tariffs set by the european union in response to president trump's tariffs. the company says this is the only sustainable option.
5:29 am
president trump says harley surrendered and waved the white flag. joining me now for harley-davidson clyde fessler who's widely credited with the company's turn around in the '80s and '90s. the president as we know is not happy with this move. in fact, threatening that not only will the aura be gone from the company but they will be taxed like never before. the president threatening to tax this company like never before. what do you make of that especially someone who helped turn this company around? >> it's a very complicated situation, when looking at harley and you have to look way back when when they started over 115 years ago when harley was just a domestic company and that was shipping motorcycles to north america and canada and mexico. in the 1980s we became an international company and that's when we started shipping motorcycles to europe, about 4,000 motorcycles a year in
5:30 am
mid-1980s. now we're shipping about 45,000 motorcycles a year to the european marketplace and harley-davidson is evolving from a national company, an international company to a global company and -- and just like honda, they all have plants all over the world so harley-davidson is probably pursuing that type of a strategy. >> you came in, you were brought in to help turn this company around in the '80s. you believe in 2018 this is the right move? >> in 2018 i think that the harley-davidson -- i've been retired for 15 years, i think it's a good move for them, but there's one thing that people don't realize and that's the heart and soul of the harley-davidson is its engine and that's the potato. as long as those engines are made in milwaukee with those workers and with the technology they have in milwaukee and ship those engines throughout the
5:31 am
world, it's still the spirit and the soul of harley-davidson that's going to be going on those motorcycles. >> in terms of those workers, the international association of machinists and arrow space workers saying this is a slap in the face to the highly skilled workforce that made harley an iconic american brand. you also helped to lead the establishment of hog, more than 1 million members of this, could this thwart the company here at home? >> i don't believe so. i think the soul of harley-davidson is still -- it's an american brand, it's an american icon. so they are selling a lifestyle and that lifestyle exists throughout the whole world. >> can it be the same lifestyle if part of its made overseas? >> i'm sorry. i didn't hear that. >> can it still be that same
5:32 am
lifestyle they're putting out there if part of those bikes are made overseas? >> yes. when it comes to fenders and gas tanks and it comes to wheels and brakes and things like that, it's a world sourcing situation right now and i think the harley-davidson will always be an american icon because of its location and the heartbeat of it being in the milwaukee, wisconsin. >> harley was pretty clear about the financial reasoning behind it. as we look at the president's response to this, based on your experience in business over decades, is there a broader implication, not just for other countries to follow suit but perhaps for other countries to worry about the threats that we're seeing from the president, to tax harley like never before? how much of an impact could that have? >> i don't think it's going to have much of an impact at all. what we're talking about now is a lot of storm that's floating around that's going to settle down sooner or later. i think this is the passage of time, the president, donald
5:33 am
trump, is a businessman. he's not a republican, he's not a democrat and he's a realist. that's trying to really approach business problems that are out in the field. >> do you think that is just his way of making a deal? >> i think -- i think president trump is a master negotiator because he's coming from a business standpoint instead of a political standpoint. >> and so this is part of his negotiation you think, with harley or with the broader business community? >> i think he's positioning himself with the broader community throughout the whole world and it's time that somebody stands up and really looks that the tariff situation that we've been having for the last 30 years and let's equalize things and eliminate all the tariffs. harley would be in favor of that and the president would be this favor of that as the european union is now suggesting, let's eliminate all the tariffs on all
5:34 am
automobiles, motorcycles and all products. >> clyde fessler, appreciate your time, thank you for taking the time this morning. >> you're welcome. good talking to you. bye-bye. so a day in the life of jim acosta, our senior white house correspondent heckled at a donald trump presidential event but at the same time remarkable moments of civility and humanity. jim will tell his story coming up. ♪ if you have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis, little things can be a big deal.

5:38 am
president trump is hitting the road again today for a campaign rally in north dakota. earlier this week he held a rally in south carolina where cnn's jim acosta got quite a welcome from the crowd. >> go home! >> chanting go home, jim, in case you couldn't make that out. we never let you go home, we just make you work. >> reporter: no problem. >> you wrote a great piece about this. i encourage people to read it on
5:39 am about the reception you got and, you know, i know you're used to this in some ways but it was such an interesting mixed bag. >> reporter: that's right, erica. there was that lady there that famously told me to get the f out of that auditorium, nice elderly woman that was not happy that i was there. i simply told her and a told a lot of the folks that, we're reporters, we're going to do our jobs. we're not going to be shouted out of an auditorium by an angry mob and that's because we have these rights that protect the constitution of freedom of the press. i want to apologize on behalf of the people of south carolina, even had a gentleman come up to us and asked for a chair. he came back with my mother, this chair was for my mother. she wasn't feeling well. thanks a lot. your mother must have raised you right and i said she tried. listen, one of the things -- one of my big takeaways from this rally is that, you know, it is sort of a mixed bag. you go to these rallies and see
5:40 am
a lot of hostility. there are a lot of people there who are even shocked by the environment, the climate that they're put in day in and day out when the president comes to these rallies. >> it's not easy being jim acosta. it never has been easy being jim, i do think it was interesting and you had extra time to talk to people because the president's plan was late and he was circling because there was a bad storm. that dialogue you had with people was revealing. i really do. >> reporter: it was. one of the things i asked folks there, let me ask you a question, folks, are you that mad at us because of the coverage you watch on cnn or are you watching our coverage through other filters, through other prisons? are you getting your information about cnn from fox news? my suspicion is that many of those folks are watching cnn's coverage through rival outlets through conservative outlets that would rather see the destruction of cnn to be quite honest and i saw a lost people
5:41 am
nodding and saying, you know what? you have a point there. at the same time, i do think there are some people who have to sit back and ask themselves some hard questions and do some self-reflection. be decent to president trump and sarah huckabee sanders. we might have a civil war in this country, we might have people shooting at each other. those ideas are in conflict with one another. civility starts at the top. the tone is set at the top by the president of the united states and when he goes around saying that mexican immigrants are rapists and criminals, when he calls us the enemy of the people, obviously that's going to have an effect on the people in the crowd, you know. one of the things i get asked a lot is, how come you don't realize why people are so upset with your coverage? if you had the president of the united states and fox news and the rest of the magga phone on the daily basis that might after
5:42 am
v an effect on what we do. >> i love me some south carolina hometown but the state knows what it talks about and says about civil war. she says its incumbent upon you to be decent, how do you square that circle? you indicated some folks in the audience seemed to get that it's a bit of a professional wrestling type act, with potentially serious consequences? >> reporter: that's right. the gentleman i gave the chair too he looked back as he was calling us fake news and to indicate, yes, i get this is an act. my view is the president when he goes after the press that it's an act, he used this as a device and wedge in this culture war to try to maintain dominance in the united states, but the thing i asked these folks in the crowd and one of the things i do want to say is, we have to over and over and over again talk to these folks, hear what they have to say, hear their concerns, but at the same time, you know, the thing i said to them, listen,
5:43 am
you got kids coming across the border being put in cages and ripped away from their parents. don't you expect me to ask questions about that? another lady objected to me asking about otto warmbier at the signing ceremony. i'm sorry that was an american citizen who was killed by the north koreans. you know what? i don't regret that at all, shouting questions at dictators is what i like to do. my message to folks there was basically we're not going to back down. we have a job to do and i thought, you know, the thing i took away from this, john and john and erica, there was a lot of nodding there. i think when people had a chance to see us one-on-one human to human, american to american, they understood that, you know, we have an important job to do that's protected under our constitution and its the american way to ask hard questions and my attitude is we're going to keep doing it. one other funny thing i thought was amusing, one gentleman said to me, it was interesting to see you do the pledge of allegiance
5:44 am
and sing the national anthem and i was like yes, i know the pledge of allegiance, people are trapped in this -- in this world where they've been inundated with hate messages aimed at the press and to some extent i felt as if i was trying to, you know, break them out of that and to some extent it was working, maybe not for everybody. we'll try it again next time. >> one of the few professions actually protected specifically within the constitution. nothing more american than being a good reporter. jim acosta, read jim's piece on it's a really interesting story. great to have you here this morning. >> thank you. the president of the united states who you will remember, i'm old enough to remember just a few days ago said there was no point in republicans trying to push for immigration -- >> waste of time was i believe the phrase. >> moments ago, i guess changing course now saying the republicans should pass something and today. stick around we'll tell you all about it.

breaking news, the president weighing in on the immigration debate in the house of representatives. this is what he wrote. he said house republicans should pass the strong but fair immigration bill known as goodlatte 2 in their afternoon vote today even though the dems won't let it pass the senate. we want strong borders and security. now, i want to take a ride in the way back machine because it was way back last friday when the president effectively sort of killed in the immigration discussion in congress. republicans should stop wasting their time on immigration until after we elect more senators and congressman and he goes on and on. friday, don't waste your time. today -- >> it's wednesday. focus all your time on it. yeah. >> when he puts out that tweet on friday, they pulled the bill.

5:52 am
it's still not clear where they all are. not part of the bill, but any way -- >> we apparently track property better than children. overnight in case you miss it had. something we have never seen before, the late night hosts colluded. there is actual collusion. we are finding -- it's in late night comedy. they joined together in response after the president at a political rally instead of talking about immigrants who were separated from their parents, he talked about problems in late night comedy, so there was stephen colbert, jimmy fallon and a cameo from someone else overnight. watch. >> got it. it's surprising trump is orange because if you ask me he is is bananas. done. great monologue.
