tv   Cuomo Primetime  CNN  October 31, 2018 6:00pm-7:00pm PDT

6:00 pm
massacre, funerals for people who live good and decent lives. 75-year-old joyce feinberg was buried today, a widow, grandmother, former researcher at the university of pittsburgh. irving younger who was 69, he was a greeter at tree of life synagogue. also 87-year-old melvin wax. like irving younger, dedicated fan of pittsburgh pirates. more funerals, of course, are set for later this week. the news continues. want to hand it over to chris cuomo. prime starts right now. >> thank you. did you see the video the president of the united states released? this is no halloween spoof. this is a willie horton redux. it started at the place by the man who started the willie horton ad, roger ailes. both were distorted, bigoted, but also effective. it leads us to our next question. are democrats too quiet on this ugly activity? we're going to talk to the head of the party about how democrats
6:01 pm
can counter before election day. from ugly images to twisted logic. if obama went around congress to protect dreamers, i can change the constitution to punish the same people. that's what president trump is trying to sell you, and he may send 15,000 troops to the border just to make the point. that's more troops than we have in afghanistan, and it's something no president has ever done. there are some spooky suggestions that demand a fact check, and we have that treat for you. see what i did there? we're also going to talk to a republican fighting to keep his seat in the house. why he is under fire. another republican making a race about race, happy halloween, everybody. let's get after it. at a time when the president says he's calling for unity, all he seems to be pushing for real is fear and division. i want you to watch and listen to what was sent from the president's twitter account to
6:02 pm
55.5 million people. >> [ bleep ], [ bleep ]. [ bleep ]. >> and that's just part of it, to be honest. i don't want to play all of it and people come to me and sa why are you playing these ugly and distorted images? when did all migrants become the man trump just tweeted about? a man given the death penalty for killing two sheriff's deputies and wounding a third? this tweet is coming from the same president who earlier this week complained about people blaming his rhetoric for the rise of hate acts across the country. now trump is doing just that, by saying the democrats are responsible for the atrocious act that this man committed.
6:03 pm
so, who better to respond to the president's comments about democrats than the democratic national committee chair, mr. tom perez. tom, good to have you. >> chris, great to be with you as always. >> reaction to the ad? >> this is distracting, divisive donald at his worst. this is fear mongering. they're hemorrhaging, chris, on the health care issue. health care is the number one issue in this country. social security, medicare and medicaid are right up there. they can't talk about those because they're on the wrong side. they want to cut medicare. they want to cut medicaid. they vote today repeal the affordable care act how many times? i don't care if you have a preexisting condition, you're out of luck. so they have to distract. they have to fear monger. and his dog whistle of all dog whistles is immigration. this has been donald trump's play book for so long. >> true. >> you know what, when they go low, we go vote. that is what we're seeing across this country. people who are out there, the energy on our side. people understand that our health care is at stake. our schools are at stake. >> right. >> frankly our democracy is at
6:04 pm
stake. that is why i'm so heartened by the early vote that's out there. i'm heartened to see young people showing up. i'm heartened to see sporadic voters showing up. i'm heartened to see that in georgia we already have twice as many african americans who voted early. >> true. >> than in 2014. but we have more work to do, no doubt about it. >> i see the numbers. i see why there is cause for optimism frankly on the gop side as well. there is a lot of robust turnout. can't compare to 2016. when you look at 2014 midterms to mid terms, both sides are turning out more than in the past. but my question is this. did you guys hand trump the stick that he's beating you with when it comes to immigration? you don't really go at him about these things. i mean, this ad just came out. but i don't hear your candidates and your leaders going toe to toe with trump about his fear and loathing. and by doing that, are you risking letting people believe his side of it about where you guys are when it comes to immigration? >> no, we have never been shy about the fact that we are a nation of immigrants.
6:05 pm
we support dreamers. and we support immigration reform. i was proud to work under barack obama when we passed bipartisan immigration reform in the united states senate. it was held up by the republicans in the u.s. house. i am not shy about that as a democrat and as a latino. and what i am also not shy about is calling out dog whistle politics. this is dog whistle politics at its worst. days after we had a tragic shooting in pennsylvania, less than a week after you have an arrest of someone in that scooby-doo van. when you create a climate as this president has created that invites violent acts, you should never be surprised when you have violent acts. and the american people are tired of it. that's why they know that we need guardrails in washington. we need guardrails in our governor's residence. that's why i'm confident we're
6:06 pm
going to do really well in electing democrats here in washington and across the nation. >> i've been scanning the nation. i see what's going on in health care. i see why you're banking that's resonant. we talked about it here, that's new for the democrats, it's more robust than you had in the past. we'll see if that works in terms of what kind of turnout you want. but on this issue of immigration, you guys have not owned it the way he does. he says you guys are open borders because you're in favor of policies like family reunification and what they call chain migration in here. and you don't hear democrats going toe to toe with trump about this. you talk about other things, and i'm wondering, what's the calculus there? because to me it seems like a risk. >> i disagree with you, chris. here's the deal. donald trump -- the republicans own the white house. they have the senate. they have the house. they own any failure in these policies right now >> shouldn't you have your own plan? >> we have a plan. it's called comprehensive immigration reform. it's called creating a tough but fair pathway to citizenship.
6:07 pm
it's about making sure that dreamers for whom america has always -- it's been the only home they've known, we give them that opportunity. i think america is great because america is good. you look at the organizations that were targeted by this thug last weekend. they were helping to integrate immigrants and refugees into this country. that is what has always made america great. and when you continue to demonize -- i'm proud democrats have supported immigration reform. it is unconscionable you're trying to use this wedge issue to divide. >> that's because it gets people down deep, this issue. no matter where they are on the issue, they care about the issue. and i hear your language, america is great because america is good. i remember when your nominee for president said it in 2016. it didn't work against the rhetoric, one could argue, that you know people are coming in illegally. how will you stop illegal
6:08 pm
immigration? because if you don't speak to it, not that his plans make any more sense, not that they're any better for the soul of the country. he's talking about it and i don't hear equal rhetoric from the left about your plans to make the place safer. >> look, i'm not going to fight low ball politics with low ball palomino politics. i'm going to fight low ball politics with facts. 2015 which touched 2016 and 2017, the illegal border crossings in the southwest border were their lowest levels since the 1970s. that is a fact. that is not an alternative fact. he is trying to manufacture a crisis. by the way, the way you solve this problem is by building relationships with can you think triz in the region. when you demonize latinos in the country every day, you make it harder to solve the problem. that's why you see failure under this administration because nobody wants to work with our country because you're
6:09 pm
constantly calling mexicans thugs and all these other atrocious names. that's why they can't do it. but that's the fact on the border. when you try to manufacture a crisis so that you can deflect attention from the fact that health care is the number one issue in this country, and they're on the wrong side of it, chris, that's what's going on here. distracting, dividing donald trying to change the subject. the fact of the matter is your health care is on the ballot. your medicare is on the ballot. your is social security is on the ballot, your medicaid is on the ballot and frankly democracy is on the ballot. that's why we have to get out there and vote and that is why we're working our tail off across this country to elect democrats up and down the ballot. and we've got opportunities in state houses. we've got opportunities in the congress. >> right. >> in the congress and the senate. that's how we're going to take back our nation, because, i'll tell you, i'm heartened by the turnout. i also know we have a lot more work to do. >> threw. >> we'-- true. >> we are focused like a laser
6:10 pm
on the issues people care about. >> i hear you on focus. i know this resonates. that's why i wanted to ask you about it and what your plan is and how it fits the overall strategy especially in light of the video that came out. tom, thank you for making the indicates to my audience. >> always a pleasure to be with you. >> be well. you get a choice on trick-or-treat but you get no choice but to feast on facts on this show. there are several big arguments being made in the run up to next tuesday. we're going break down what is fact and what is fogaze. next. we can't do it. i'm telling you. it can't be done! we are doing it. it's a done deal. for $40, t-mobile is offering unlimited, and the awesome iphone xr for every line. wah! so, they get the new iphone xr and the plan for $40 bucks. ah! the new iphone xr! that's bananas! what's with the monkey head, fred? where's your memoji?

6:14 pm
every president gets aggressive. they want as much "maury" as they can get. the congress and the courts are to check that ambition. now, we have some first problems here, and we need facts-first action to deal with them. first we have a treat for the president on halloween. what he's doing with the military on the border may be politically arguable, but it is probably legal, all right. today the president even upped the ante. >> as far as the caravan is concerned, our military is out. we have about 5,000, 8, we'll go up to anywhere between 10 and 15,000 military personnel on top of border patrol, i.c.e., and everybody else at the border. >> 15,000, that's double the figure that the pentagon officials said would be operating there. if it does reach that figure, because you never know with the president, if he's just saying it or if it means something, that would be more than our number of troops in afghanistan, three times the size of our presence in iraq. it's also true that you had other presidents, bush and
6:15 pm
obama, sent in the military, too, to enforce the border, but not active military duty like trump is suggesting. they used the national guard. same thing? nope. governors agreed to send national guard along with the federal government. they're not even part of that fancy phrase you hear posse, which means county force. that law has a restriction on the military doing domestic law enforce: national guard is not included in it. that's why you see the national guard included at riots but never active duty troops. bush deployed 6000 national guard troops. obama sent out 200 in 2010. those numbers were much lower. listen to the price tag, $1.3 billion for both operations. build a lot of wall for that money. though while expensive, trump can probably do it, that's the treat. but what he can't do is what he was trying to sell you today. listen. >> you don't need a constitutional amendment, a birthright citizenship. if president obama can get daca
6:16 pm
approved, if you look at daca, where he actually said, well, this isn't legal or this i can't do but i'll do it anyway -- if he can do daca, we can do this by executive order. >> nope. don't be a sucker. first, whether you need one or not, you have a constitutional amendment that deals with birthright citizenship. it cannot be wished or ordered away. and there is no reason for this to go to the supreme court. and even when the issue has come before the supreme court, as it did many, many years ago, it looked at the issue and made it crystal clear. if you're born here, you're a citizen, period. now, daca, follow what's happening here. that was a presidential power grab. that's how he started this wall for you. that's what presidents do. but it was within an existing framework of legislation. aggressive by obama, maybe too aggressive, no doubt about that, but an enfirely different an analyze legally from what trump is trying. daca was not a move to change what is expressly in the
6:17 pm
constitution. trump's move is. he said his lawyers said he could do this. when we asked to hear from the lawyers, we got nothing. now, there is a fallback position now with trump. this often happens. when he gets out over his skis and says something wrong, it meant something else. this isn't about changing the 14th amendment. although that is exactly what he said. it's really about reinterpreting in light of what he said about a new reality with illegal entrants. this is some trick by the republicans, even on halloween. trump and co have said a million times they want strict constructionists when it comes to the constitution, right? they want to just stick to the text, especially when it comes to the supreme court. that's their argument with the second amendment, about bearing arms. don't apply it to now and the realities we have. it only means what it says. and yet now, when it comes to the 14th amendment, they want the opposite. don't look at what the framers said. look at what it means today. they never envisioned this.
6:18 pm
the idea, as this little run around, that the phrase subject to the jurisdiction thereof changes things, because illegal people, they're not subject to the jurisdiction. really? then why can you have i.c.e. round them up like stray cats? the reason you can is because they are subject to your jurisdiction. lastly, as a matter of fact, trump saying today that what he wants to do is okay because that's what obama did? he hated what obama did. listen for yourself. >> president obama signed daca. when he signed it he said i'm really not allow today sign this, i'm going to sign if anyway. president obama when he signed the executive order said he doesn't have the right to do this. >> and he goes around signing all these executive orders. it's a basic disaster, you can't do t. >> so, it was wrong, but now it's okay because you want to do the same thing even though you're trying to do something totally different. the hypocrisy, the nonsense. it's all too scary, even on halloween. so, how does this fit into
6:19 pm
everything that's going on in the run up to the election? driving fear, right? and that's always about more. driving fear always requires layers. but this latest video that we showed you makes the willie horton ad seem fair. will it work? and do democrats have an answer? great debate next. yeah, this is bob barnett in chicago. (john foley) i was there when bob barnett made the first commercial wireless phone call. we were both working on that first network that would eventually become verizon's. that call opened the door to the billions of mobile calls that we've all made since. i'm proud i was part of that first call, and i'm proud that i'm here now as we build america's first and only 5g ultra wideband network that will transform how we all live, once again.

6:23 pm
>> ble >> [ bleep ], [ bleep ], [ bleep ]. >> look, they can say all they want about who made this. this came from trump's campaign for 2020. it came from his twitter account and went out to 55.5 million people. so you don't get to have it both ways. you want this message out there, you own it. and it's clear that this is what the president thinks will work with voters in america. frightened people about latinos, about immigrants, and put it on the democrats. the question is, will it work? and do the democrats have an effective counter? that is the premise for the great debate. let us bring in our debateers anna navarro and scott jennings.
6:24 pm
good to have you both. i call this the willie horton redux. it's more inflammatory than willie or ton wa willie horton was. what's your take? >> you know, it's just more of donald trump being donald trump. to me it's such a tired, old play book. this is what he did in 2016, fear mongering, division, sowing discord. >> worked. >> demonizing immigrants. it worked, that is why he is going back to it, because it worked. i think it's up to the american people to say whether this is what they're going to buy into again or not. in 2016 he was able to win the electoral college, not the popular vote. but all those people who chose not to vote in 2016 or all those people of who thought hillary doesn't fill my love tank and i'm going to vote for somebody else or write in somebody else, it's a binary choice.
6:25 pm
the choice right now isn't even about the candidates in front of you. it's about america. do we want an america where the message is dividing, where the message is hostility, where the message is inciting fear, where the message is lying? or do we want an america that is united, that is inspirational, that talks about american values, shared values and defends those values? that's the choice that's facing america in 2018. >> all right. scott, why do you like the ad? >> well, i mean, i'm not surprised by the ad. i mean, these messages are basically what donald trump has been talking about since he first started running for president. i think the point he's trying to make is that the republican party is the party of border security and the democratic party, at least among some candidates and in some quarters, is abolish i.c.e. and open borders. we've had people on cnn through the election season who espouse those views. if you're the president and you've had success in the past running on immigration, hard
6:26 pm
line immigration and border security, you're going back to the well that has produced for you in the past. so see anything in this video i haven't heard from the president consistently the last couple of years. >> i'm asking if you're okay -- >> we agree on that. >> you both agree on that point. this is where trump's head and heart clearly are. that means he's okay doing something you guys were thanking me for not having done last week. i can't tell you how many of my friends on the right said to me, hey, thanks for saying that he's not directly responsible for the bombings. a lot of people are. hey, you have to make your own choice when you do something. you can't put it on the political motivation. the environment is what it is. the atmosphere is what it is. they were thanking me. he just did the exact thing that they didn't want done to him. he's saying the democrats are responsible for this man's crimes. that is not only untrue. we know it's unfair. it is an unfair depiction of responsibility. it's unfair depiction of latinos and what they represent as a criminal element in this country. how can you be okay with it?
6:27 pm
>> well, look, it's not the message i would be closing a campaign on. immigration does have high intensity scores in the polling for a lot of republican voters. but i tell you what i would be close thing campaign on if i were the president. look what's in the washington post tonight. we have the best wage growth in a decade thanks to the economy that he and the republican party can rightfully take credit for. the democrats are trying to own -- there's two important issues. health care in the economy. the democrats are trying to own the space on health care. they're running a focused campaign on that. i want the president and the republicans to own the other most important issue which they can rightfully own, and that's the economy. he wants it to be about immigration. this is likely not going to hurt republicans in the big red rural senate states. i'd say in suburban districts where you have moderate white collar voters who maybe swing back and forth -- >> right. >> -- i think they'd rather hear about the wage growth than the economy. this message isn't resonant with them. >> you have a hiccough with that. you're right in the last ten years. if you go apples to apples, the last time the unemployment rate
6:28 pm
is what it is right now was 2000, 2001. it was 4 to 4.2%. now it's 9%. why is it the same? it gets into a lot of different arguments another day. there is a case to be made. that's my point. ann a it's interesting for the democrats. i say you don't go toe to toe with trump. you'll say you have a comprehensive plan on your own. you're not going low with him. they have really left him you think checked on this issue, and they're making a bet that the suburban women and men won't like it so they won't have to counter it. is that risky? >> look, i think the democratic message is no message. i think the only way that the democrats can counter this is by being the anti-trump. what is being the anti-trump right now? it means offering america a positive message. it means talking about unifying america. it means pointing the finger at trump and saying, yes, you sure
6:29 pm
do have responsibility for the spike in hate crimes in the last two years. you know, it is no coincidence -- it is no coincidence that anti-semitism has gone up 60% under trump. it is no coincidence that women speaking spanish in montana are getting detained. and women speaking spanish in new york are getting berated by a racist. and a 92-year-old mexican-american man in l.a. is getting his face beaten in with a brick into a pulp. it is no coincidence. he sows this. this is what he puts in the ground and what cultivates into hatred. that is the message that democrats have to say. they can't go toe to toe with him. when they do they fail. when eric holder says when they go low we kick them, that sounds ridiculous. who thinks eric holder can kick anything? what they have to do is be the opposite. be inspirational, talk to the better angels. talk to the good in american people. talk to their hearts. and, you know, just offer them
6:30 pm
something to vote for, not against. >> not just against. >> what they do, too often with donald trump they think because it's donald trump people are going to vote against. give them something to vote for. to get excited. like what andrew gillum is doing in florida. uniting -- >> that is a template for them. we'll see if it works there and see what happens on tuesday. >> we will see. >> last word for you, scott. >> chris, if i may on the question you asked which is why don't the democrats go toe to toe with trump on t the reason their party chair cannot is the democrats are divided on this issue. you have candidates like ocasio-cortez far to the left, abolish i.c.e., open borders. you have joe donley in indiana. in virtually every ad he runs he's saying i want to build the wall. i want to help trump build the wall. the democratic party is extremely divided. they have no unified message on this which makes it impossible for their party -- >> so is the republican party. you have republicans in miami and steve king who even republicans are denouncing.
6:31 pm
it is a divisive issue and trump is making his bet. >> he's making a bet he goes to the rural areas and gets thousands of people, maybe tens of thousands to cheer for him. we all know one thing is an i am utahable fact. the guy can't get above 50% because of the economy. the reason is what we saw in the ad. we'll see how it plays out tuesday. scott jennings, thank you. anna navarro, as always. there are many races locked in heat right now. you have unfamiliar territory when it comes to midterms for us. we haven't seen this many seats without an incumbent in them um for grabs. i think there are 41. that's why trump is pulling out all the stops. and a republican he endorsed here in north is fighting tooth and nail to hold onto his seat as well. is he using some of trump's own tactics and in the wrong way? he'll make his case to you next. ♪ like a big pizza pie, ♪ that's amore. ♪ when the world seems... ♪ applebee's new neighborhood pastas.

6:35 pm
all right. one of the hot races that wasn't supposed to be a hot race is happening here in western new york. you have the incumbent republican congressman john faso. he's going against a guy named antonio delgado. newcomer to politics, a big resume. john faso was saying in a campaign ad, it's not from his campaign but not something he's rejecting either, you have to see delgado for what he was when he was a rapper a decade ago, and here's some of the music in the ad.
6:36 pm
>> [ bleep ], [ bleep ]. >> i'm an attorney fighting for what's fair and just. ♪ having sex to a porno flick -- >> we owe it to our country to restore -- ♪ ♪ >> all right. we have congressman john faso joining us now. congressman, appreciate you doing this. >> thank you, chris. nice to be with you. >> i drew the distinction there. the ad doesn't come from you, it comes from one of the republican congressional committees. but you haven't denied it. in fact, you often argue why delgado has to answer for his rap lyrics back then. this is a harvard guy. as trump would say, he's a rogue scholar. he's certainly known for being able to articulate issues that has him locked up with you in a race he had no business being in in the first place if you look at the demographics of your district. why are you okay with an ad depicting him this way? >> well, actually, chris, our district is very politically divided. it is a very competitive district. it voted for president obama by 6 points in 2012 and voted for
6:37 pm
president trump by 6 points in 2016. >> right. >> mr. delgado just moved into our district, having never lived or worked or been involved in anything in our district. in april of 2017, he registered to vote, and the very next day he signed up to run for congress, having no record here. and so many people ask, what are his views, what are his values? and we do know that though certainly those ads as you correctly said are not from my campaign, the ads are provocative, but many of the lyrics that he wrote were provocative. and to me, it is not about rap, it's about what are his positions, the political positions he expressed are controversial. in fact, just recently, he said, for instance, that israel was not a jewish democracy. he said that he favored the iran deal despite the fact that it would give billions of dollars to that regime, et cetera. >> right. >> so he has no record here. i think that's the question
6:38 pm
voters are asking for. >> it feels like a race play. your district is 80% white. someone who spoke on your behalf, a professor at suny state. he said we're not about rap music up here where we're from. really? even if you're 84% white? go listen to the music your kids are listening to and your young adults. i bet you eight out of ten times it's going to be rap music. it seems like a race play, congressman. that's why i'm asking you. >> chris, i'm not responsible for things other people say. i'm only responsible for things that i say. and all i have said, and i've debated mr. delgado five or six times during this campaign. he's got a very radical left view on many issues. and so that's really where our distinction is. let me be clear, chris. i have said right from the get go, i don't want any vote from any person that would vote for me because they don't like mr. delgado's race. that is irrelevant to me. >> that's all that ad does, john. that's what the ad says, this guy is a homey.
6:39 pm
he's a rapper. forget about the rogue scholar, forget about harvard, he's not one of us. that's what the ad says. >> well, he just moved into the district. when he votes next week for congress, it will be the very first time he's ever voted for congress in our district. and i think that's really the key. he has no real connection here. he's never had a job here. no philanthropic or other activity. and it's very arrogant and presum shus to say, oh, i've now arrived. i have a harvard degree, and therefore you should elect me as a member of congress. i've debated him six times, chris. he doesn't know a heck of a lot -- >> why is he loktd up -- >> i'm sorry? >> why is he locked up with you in the polls? >> because this is a very competitive race. the democrats want to win control of the house. they have spent since june about $10 million in negative ads falsely attacking me and my record. and so that's why it's a close race. but i'm going to win, chris. i can assure you that. >> how do you know? >> i just feel it, you know? you have that feeling. i know that mario cuomo used to
6:40 pm
feel confident about races. you can get a feel from people when you're out there on the hustings. this is a big district, chris. it's bigger than connecticut and rhode island combined. it covers 11 counties in upstate new york. >> right. >> i know this district because i've lived and worked here 35 years. >> i know the district. i'm been there very well with the man you mention and had my brother who is running the state right now. but are you worried -- let's say you do win. are you worried that you win because you bring out voters that don't like that this black guy who is a rapper is running for office? >> no. in fact, i categorically reject that notion. >> hold on a second. you can't rejoeect a notion, congressman. that's what the ad portrays. they even cherry-picked the lyrics. you didn't put together the ad as far as i know. they took phrases that could be seen as offensive had and:them out of context. let me play the song. it has a catchy back beat. ♪ it doesn't come in brown, nor
6:41 pm
is it new. god bless america, god bless iraq. god bless us all ♪ ♪ >> different in that context, isn't it? >> you're not playing some of the things he said about women, for instance, chris. if you repeated the language that he said about women that's very derogatory, you'd probably have to beep that on your show. >> rap is what it is. the miss only niskanogynistic t leak into rap -- this one aspect of his life and taking a lot of it out of context as we just proved with that clip, i'm just asking you are you okay winning that way? >> chris, i'm working hard -- i'm talking to voters about my record. >> right. >> passing an opioid bill. helping farmers in our upstate district. working hard for veterans. that's what i'm talking about. mr. delgado has no record in
6:42 pm
this district and it's highly presumptuous and arrogant of him to drop in, parachute into our district last year and say, here i am, i should be your congressman. i think voters will have a different opinion next tuesday. >> all right. john faso running for congress, western new york. thank you very much for joining us on the show. appreciate it. >> thank you. >> all right. be well. all right. next segment we're going to sweeten things up a little bit. i have a poll that i guarantee you'll care about. i know, i know, i know. crazy, right? i'm going to be right on this one. and it's going to test you on a sweeter level. you've been savi, you can do it. we can do this. at fidelity, our online planning tools are clear and straightforward so you can plan for retirement while saving for the things you want to do today. -whoo! discover.o.ving for the things i like your card, but i'm absolutely not paying an annual fee. discover has no annual fees. really? yeah. we just don't believe in them. oh nice. you would not believe how long i've been

melania and i were treated very nicely yesterday in pittsburgh, the president tweeted. the office of the president was shown great respect on a very sad and solemn day. we were treated so warmly. small protest was not seen by us.
6:56 pm
staged far away. fake news stories were just the opposite. disgraceful. disgraceful. deserving of shame. good word choice by our president. but i argue to you, the reporting was not what it is, disgraceful. the effort by the president is definite reference -- deference to the victims. it involved the shooting and members of the jewish community and others. something more. they signalled a cataclysm that grew out of a toxic political dynamic, a massacre of 11, the largest targeted murder of jews in american history. this white supremacists bigot anti-semite was feeding on the fears of the caravan. he bought the invader talk so much, he saw the jews who were helping refugees along with other faiths he decided ton target as needing to die. our president has spent weeks saying things that could fuel the fires of hate, that men like this murderer hold in the place where their hearts should be.
6:57 pm
that's why there were protests that should have been covered and were. so, reporting on those was not shameful, but the word could still apply because this tweet is disgraceful. 11 dead jewish americans and trump has to make it about himself? he said he was there for them? he said he was there to unite? but when he doesn't like the coverage, he goes back to nationalist strong man tactics. that is disgraceful. know your audience, mr. president. many of these victims fled themselves or their families fled from men who were nationalists, who talked about who was an enemy of the people. why do you go there? do you really want to be like the men who embraced those ugly turns of phrase? proof of this concern. someone i know sent me a note today to tell me how concerned they are, so afraid, they made me promise not to use their name. they were afraid for their kids. their story is this.
6:58 pm
they came here 30 years ago, and their father, who lived through stalin and communist hungary, was worried when he heard they were coming here. fascism will hit them, he said. they have no idea what it looks like. they won't recognize it early enough to fight against it, but only when it will be in their face, and much too late. this was in 1985. reagan was president. a russia fighter who sounded like mother teresa compared to trump. so, this person dismissed their father's warning as the anxiety of a man stained reasonably by experience. that is, until now. until some of what trump says and is echoed by some of the good people on both sides types, those running for office who -- federalist flags and make racist remarks without reproach from trump or the gop. too afraid to let me use their name. 11 dead jews, murdered for being jews, and trump thinks he's sowing unity by tearing at the fabric of our diversity,
6:59 pm
needling us with throw back terms of an anti-semitic era. the crowds may roar, mr. president. but you should consider those too frightened to speak, those who are listening to you and shaking their heads. tuesday is coming. and you don't even have half the country with you, despite the economy, and all you brag about. this is why. thank you for watching. cnn with don lemon starts right now. >> that ad, chris. not even trying to hide it any more. >> willie horton. >> oh, my gosh. do you think it's worse? >> i do, and i'll tell you why. willie horton, 1988, very one dimensional. fear the blacks, fear all their easy sentences. this guy was supposed to be in -- he got furloughed. he raped somebody. this is what happens. this is about all of them, explicitly. they show the guy who is the villain, blame it on the democrats, which is what they were begging us not to do last week, and then they show them at the gates.
7:00 pm
marauding invadeers. who else would they let? >> he was kicked out of the country and sent back to mexico by a democrat, bill clinton. >> don't let the facts get in the way. it's about the imagery and the feeling. that's what fear and clothing is about. that's trump's bet. i was checking the democrats tonight, i've been doing for sometime now, to the chagrin of many who watch my show. why don't they go toe to toe with him on this stuff? >> it shouldn't be -- what is your strategy? >> people aren't looking to be criticized right now. they're looking for an echo and that's why shows that echo partisan feelings do best. >> listen, don't get me wrong. and i think what we have to be careful of -- because you know, they're looking for everything from everyone. the media, the people they demonize all the time. there is some sort of -- we're making an excuse for this guy. this guy that is featured in the ad is a bad, bad, bad --
