tv CNN Newsroom With Fredricka Whitfield CNN June 2, 2019 11:00am-12:00pm PDT
hello, everyone and thanks so much for joining me this sunday. i'm jimfield. we begin this hour into new developments in the mass shooting investigation into virginia beach that took the lives of six people. the gunman resigned just hours before he opened fire on his co-workers. the longtime city employee sent his supervisors an email earlier in the day saying he was leaving his job. the city also confirming that one of the victims was a supervisor in the gunman's chain of command. we're learning dramatic details how quickly they were on the scene and how the shootout with the officers unfolded.
>> five to eight minutes after these officers entered the building they made contact and engaged with the suspect on the second floor of the building. i can't tell you how many shots a minute were being fired and in the police world anything more than three to five shots is a long gun battle. as the suspect was firing he was moving. they were returning fire and at one point the suspect was firing through the door and through the wall at the officers and then the firing stopped. they eventually breached a door, and when they breached the door the suspect was alive and taken into custody and first aid was immediately rendered to him. >> the 40-year-old suspect dewayne craddock later died at a virginia beach hospital. four other victims are still being hospitalized. for more on these developments let's bring in crime and justice correspondent shime owen prokupecz. what are we learning about the
suspect and possible motives for the snoogt yes, we know he's resigned, and there still has to be underlying answers that they are looking for. >> reporter: yeah. there definitely are. that doesn't necessarily mean because he resign that hed that was perhaps the motive for this shooting. that's still the big question here. law enforcement is saying they may never know why he unbleeshd this terror on this city. the thing sheer there could be a number of events in his life that ultimately led to this, but investigators are not close in any way in making a determination as to why, why he did what he did. the big thing here obviously, what we learned today is that he did resign. he resigned in an email, we're told, for personal reasons. he claimed -- beyond that he didn't real explain why he was resigning. his supervisors, one of the people that he shot and killed, each asked him why he was resigning, so authorities here don't really even know why he chose to resign yet or at least
they are not saying so, but they are continuing to investigate and trying to find reasons as to why he did what he did. the other thing we learned here is that the police are inside the building very quickly, within minutes of receiving those calls of shots being fired. four officers were on scene almost immediately within minutes. two of those that were on scene were detectives. plain clothes detectives who ran to the scene. 300 yards away in plain clothes. they weren't wearing uniforms. they grabbed their bulletproof vests, and one of those detectives was actually one that was shot and injured, saved luckily by husband bulletproof vests. he crashed it and ran into the building, and he was one of the officers that was injured. he was that officer who was shot. so still a lot going on here. still a lot for investigators to go through to learn, and really there could be one law enforcement official who said to us that they could never real learn really what the motive is
here. >> so often, shimon, after a horrible incident that you're trying to figure out, you know, what was the mindset of someone who carried it out. they looked to social media. they further looked at their place of residents and they did seize more armory, more weapons at this person's residence but what about the social media food print but what about other indicators of his state of mind? >> there really aren't any. there's nothing that so far investigators say that they would see that raised any kind of red flags because of them because of social media, facebook and other things there. may have been other events going on in his life there. would have been things he was hiding from folks, things like that we see all the time. we just don't know about that yes. interestingly enough, we talk about his home. reporters were at his house yesterday, and you can see that he had cameras facing outward from his home out into the street. i think a lot of these -- his co-workers that we've talked to were surprised by, that so it
seems like if anything a lot of people, even if they worked here for over ten years, may not have known that much about him. a lot of this catching people by surprise. >> all right. shimon prokupecz, thank you so much. we'll check back with you. appreciate it. >> cnn spoke with one of the suspect's co-workers and said he was a nice guy and saw him before the shooting brushing his teeth in the bathroom. >> dewayne was a very nice person. he was quiet. he was non-assuming. he was pleasant to be around, and -- and when i last saw him, which was just before this incident happened, he wished me to have a good weekend. the whole department up there is very close. we have a lot of celebrations together, and we all celebrate victories for each other. there was absolutely no sign, even when i talked to him when it happened. there was no sign that this was going to happen. >> sheryl dorsey is joing joining me now, a retired los
angeles police department sergeant and author of the book "black-and-blue." sheryl, thanks so much for being with me. do you believe officials know more about this shooter and motivation even though publicly they revealed yesterday he was a current employee with a badge and today saying that he quit? you know, is this typical to you? >> well, listen, there are some things that they probably won't release and they may never tell tus, and i don't know that we have a right to know, but i think there are always telltale signs, and i lived through a shooting similar to this on the lapd in a building we referred to as piper tech when an employee went on a shooting rampage. when i heard of of this shooting it immediately sounded like this person had a beef with someone. he seemed to be not indiscriminate and very specific in that he traversed three floors in a building. he was looking for folks. he was hunting for people who had wronged him, and while he may not have shared his angst with his employees, i probably bet you there's a friend, there's a family member that he
came home and talked to about things that rubbed him raw at work like we do when we share so and so bothered me or somebody upset me or i don't like the way this person treats me. there are always telltale signs in my opinion and in my experience. >> so this gunman, you know, clearly wanted to take out as many as possible. you take about the canvassing of three floors and given his weaponry, ammunition and this use of a silencer. you know, what do you glean about his planning, whatever potential red flags there may have been that may have been missed? >> well, he was serious about it, and -- and he was preparing with some specificity, and he had things that would make sure he was able to shoot for a long time before anybody heard the shots, before he got to everybody that he needed to get to on all floors, and so this isn't something that just came to him one day or in the middle of last night. he planned and prepared for this, and the whole thing now
about the cameras outside of his home, there's something going on with this guy internally that he kept hidden for a reason. >> mm-hmm. and police detailed a little bit more today about how they were able, to you know, confront, ebb gage in a shootout with the suspect within five to eight minutes, you know, of the first 911 call. this police, you know, department was just really a few feet away. but talk to me about the quick response and even the instinct of the one officer who grabbed the kevlar vest which real ultimately saved his life. >> well, you know, that's what police officers do. you know. we practiced -- we play like we practice right, and his instinct kicked in. he knew that he was going into a dangerous situation and probably instinctively without even thinking grabbed, it put it on and before he knew it he was in the midst of a gun battle, and that's what police officers are trained to do. thank god they were in close proximity so that more people weren't injured andalusian their lives as a result of this person who they could only react to
bcause no one ever can expect to fully meet that kind of force when you're being reactionary. you can't be proactive with a mass shooter. >> sheryl-doers, always appreciate your expertise. thank you so much. >> thank you. >> still ahead, cries for impeachment nearly drowning out house speaker nancy pelosi during an event in california. this as brand-new cnn polls show more democratic voters support the idea of removing the president. can pelosi keep them in check? and senator bernie sanders turns up the heat on joe biden in the 2020 presidential race. can sanders overcome his second place slump in the polls? when i showed my mom the dna results, it made her feel proud. they saw us, they recognized us. ancestry specifically showed the regions that my family was from. the state of jalisco. the city of guadalajara. the results were a reflection of our family

welcome back. i just a few hours president trump will leave for london where he'll spend the day with the royal family tomorrow before heading to france and ireland later on in the week, but even as the president prepares to leave the country, this country, he cans escape what he calls that, quote, dirty filthy disgusting word impeachment. a new cnn poll released today shows support for impeachment slowly increasing with 41% of those polled in support. that's up four points from the last cnn poll, and that increase is mostly due to democratic support. let's check in with cnn's senior national correspondent kyung law
who is in san francisco at the democratic convention. what are you hearing there? >> well, let me set the sustaining for you for a second, fredericka whitfield. >> reporter: this is a left of center event, really progressive and even more progressive than how the state seems to vote. joe biden decided to skip did and this morning senator bernie sanders, who is polling number two behind joe biden, took a jab at his lack of presence here. here's what he said. >> as you all know there is a debate among presidential candidates who have spoken to you here in this room and those who have chosen for whatever reason not to be in this room about the best way forward so let me be as clear as i can be.
in my view we will not defeat donald trump unless we bring excitement and energy into the campaign. and unless we give millions of working people and young people a reason to vote. >> sanders very popular, not popular is biden. some progressive activists,were dropping at the press tables asking quite simply where is joe biden encouraging that tonight topic of conversation. biden may breathe a sigh of relief that he wasn't here because john delaine works does not support medicare for all was booed for a solid minute. he was completely drowned out by the booing when he said that. >> that crowd is being extremely expressive and even as you and i
talk now. now at a separate event, and you are the correspondent who has been following senator kamala harris throughout her campaign. thereto was a real frightening morning where she was interrupted by a protester, a person who walked very casually on stage. let's play that moment so we can see that happen. >> whoa. >> hey, hey, hey, hey. >> hey, hey, hey. >> pleased to meet you. >> hi, hi, hi, hi. >> wait a minute, sir. >> i was asking for your attention to a much bigger idea. >> thank you so much, sir, for your big idea, but we want to make sure that we are able to get through this. >> i'm good. >> we need a mic. >> kamala harris came back on. they resumed the conversation there. you saw the moderators who were standing, you know, in between
kamala harris and the protester. her camp, harris' camp, has to be concerned, an where was her security? i mean, she is a sitting senator and that somebody can get up there and get that close and heaven forbid, you know, they want to do more than just grab a microphone. >> reporter: yeah, it is a very, very scary situation. she's a former prosecutor about talking about how she does own a handgun out of personal safety, something that she's chosen to do, completely legal, and safety is certainly an issue for her and all the candidates who are running for president. we sat with senator cory bjork and asked him what he thought of that moment. take a listen. >> he crossed a line and, you know, this election is going to go on and i'm really hoping that we see secret service and others begin to step in because that could have been a really horrifying moment and kamala is like a sister to me. i love her and that makes me
very upset. >> but he and harris have to balance, like all the candidates, fredericka, ability to talk to voters and to be completely accessible to the people who they hope will eventually support them. >> sure. at the same time are they look their campaigns and crafting their days forward on the campaign trail being cognizant of the climate of the times and whether adjustments have to be made in a proactive manner? >> reporter: absolutely. that's something they think about every single day and at this point they say it's not, you know, secret service around them. it is something that they want to do is to be able to touch all voters. >> all right. kyung lah, thanks so much. house speaker nancy pelosi has been urging democrats to hold back on impeachment for now, and that for now part could be key. listen to what majority whip jim
clyburn admitted here on cnn this morning about impeachment. >> we believe that if we do it efficiently and effectively it will be one that the public will understand and will support. if the public ever feels that we're being political with this we will have done a tremendous harm to the country, to the constitution and to the people that we are here to serve of. >> it sounds like you think that the president will be impeached or at least proceedings will begin in the house at some point but just not right now? >> yes, that's exactly what i feet. i think we've already begun it. we've got all of these committees doing their work. we're having hearings. we've already won two court cases, and there are other cases that are still to be determined. >> all right. let's talk about all of this. with me now white house correspondent and associate editor for political anita kumar
and a national political report reporter lauren lopez. >> more than one-third voters now support a vote for impeachment. another thinks fewer voters think that democrats are overreaching and there's a 4% drop in saying democrats are investigating the president too vigorously so what is the go sign going to be for democrats? what are they waiting for? >> right. so speaker pelosi has long said that she wants to wait until she sees public sentiment shift, and that's not just among democrats, but there has been a bit of movement in her language recently in the last week. she's started to say that we are going to build such a quote, iron-clad case, giving this hint of inevitability to impeachment
that she hasn't had before in her language, so we're going to have to wait and see how -- how house democrats are speaking when they come back from recess. they are gone right now this last week, but it will be interesting to see if their thoughts have changed and how much pressure they apply to the speaker when they return next week. >> they are back to big business this week. anita, regardless of what the house does, can the president, you know, have the continued confidence that republicans in the senate will never vote to impeach? >> i think the white house and the president himself are sort of confident on two things, and the poll shows that. they are confident sort of that the numbers aren't there, but they are also confident right now that the public didn't support, it and that's why they are sort of having this attitude, you know, bring it on. we'll take impeachment because they think will work in their favor because it will never get to the point where they have the numbers. i think you just look at what congressman amash from michigan a week or two ago where he was calling for impeachment. he not only didn't get any other republicans on his side.
he was actually mocked by people in his own party, so i think they are taking that pretty favorably. >> okay. we're going to hopscotch a few items. just a few moments ago you saw that video of kamala harris, democratic presidential candidate, senator harris, interrupted, you know, so to speak while she was making comments on the stage in the middle of a panel. laura there, we go, it turns out now that the man was an animal rights activist, that's how he's being described and that he didn't want to hurt harris but he did grab the microphone. he was, you know, in close proximity, and, you know, one has to wonder where was her security desnail where, is you know, the level of somebody jump in there quickly? that was a lot of time elapsed before she walked off and then others then grabbed him. what does this tell you about the tenor or the climate of what it is to be on the campaign trail today? >> right. well, i mean, protesters have very little means to get the
attention of candidates. we saw last cycle when someone got on stage with bernie sanders to try to protest his -- there were black lives matter protesters that got on the stage with him and drowned him out. that means these candidates have a balancing act. harris on the one hand is early. still wants to have a lot of access, direct access to voters, being able to walk the rope line and take selfies as a lot of these candidates do before things become more intense and before secret service is even assigned to the ultimate final candidates. >> anita, it's really trying to strike a balance. access being, you know, i guess, up close and personal, you know, with the voters, yet at the same time trying to strike a balance on how far is too far or, you know, what kind of barriers need to be put in place. new barriers to make sure that people don't get too comfortable. >> i think we've seen a lot of changes since 2016. it's always sort of been going
this way, but i feel like we've seen more negative reactions on social media in actual venues. just people feeling like they have the right to say what they want and really up close and personal. the problem for the canned day, and, of course, there's so many of them, is they real want to be one-on-one with people. shaking hands and taking selfies, you know. being able to talk to them one-on-one and they are not going to be able to give that up. >> except in that case, this person came on stage. >> right. >> into space, and when we talk about candidates wanting to be up close and personal. this actually exemplified, you know, a setting where it seems as though there are restrictions in place, but you wonder about, you know, the psychological element of somebody feeling like they have the right to get that close. >> and there clearly should have been and there's some kind of a breakdown when someone is on stage. i'm sure they wouldn't be able to do that.
i'm sure they will be looking to that in the future. >> thank you so much. laura, and anita thank you. cnn will have lots more to talk about on the presidential campaign trail. we'll have three back-to-back democratic presidential town halls tonight. massachusetts congressman seth moulton at 6:00, ohio congressman time ryan at 7:00 and california congressman eric swalwell at 8:00. it's all tonight right here on cnn. we'll be right back. this season, t-mobile is partnering with little league, to make sure every kid can feel like an all-star. with t-mobile, parents across the country can share the action, the highlights and the lowlights. and the stars of tomorrow get a chance to shine today. from little league to the big leagues, t-mobile has you covered. now connecting 99% of baseball fans. t-mobile.

welcome back. president trump doubling down on his threat to impose escalating tariffs on mexico over the immigration crisis. trump tweeting this morning calling mexico an abuser of the united states and saying it has been this way for decades. he says he wants action not talk. acting homeland security secretary kevin mcaileen says he sees this as necessary pressure on mexico. >> bottom line we need them at the table. operational we've had great partnerships in mexico and 1,000 people a day when we've arresting 4,500 people a day is not making a didn't.
>> there will be high level talks led on wednesday by secretary of state mike pompeo. how much do we know about this meeting with the commerce secretary, wilbur ross? >> we know that commerce secretary wilbur ross will be meeting with his mexican counterpart here in washington and that's coming just a couple of days before a mexican delegation will meet with secretary of state mike pompeo for high level negotiations over the tariffs president trump is planning to slap on all imports from mexico so that meeting could be laying the groundwork for those even more high-profile negotiations with the mexican delegation because obviously the mexican government sun happy with the president's announcements of those tariffs, at least 5% on all mexican imports, and that will gradually rise up to 25% by the fall in mexico hasn't met the president's demands. here in washington lawmakers on
both sides of the aisle have expressed some anxiety over what this could mean for the renegotiated nafta, the u.s., canada, mexico trade agreement that president trump has negotiated with those two country, but acting chief of staff nick mulvaney this morning made the case that these are two separate issues. one is related to immigration and those tariffs will go away if mexico does more to help stem the flow of migrants into the u.s. and the other is related to the renegotiated nafta deal. he wants to keep those on two separate tracks though there's concern that one could overlap with the others, and just moments ago president trump actually tweeted about this, about the mexican delegation come. he said the mexico side has been all talk and no action, and he wants to see them cooperate more with the u.s. to help stop the increasingly dire situation on the border. >> and patrick, mexico's president says trump will realize this isn't the way to resolve things, so does mexico feel like it's going into this with some leverage?
>> no. mexico really doesn't appear to have much leverage. they are trying to convince the u.s. that this is a bad idea not just for mexico but for the united states economy and they are making a full-court press this week. at least three cabinet mexican secretaries are part of a much larger delegation, mexican officials traveling to washington are already in washington, and they will make their case saying that this will hurt mexico which will lead to more immigration from mexico to the u.s. and it's going to hurt the u.s. economy as well which is so intertwined with the mexican economy, and we expect them to also make the case that they are doing much, much more than has been done previously this year. not only to stop migrants heading north, mainly central american migrants but trying to get thousand of migrants to stay here in mexico and offer them job opportunities, schooling, some legal path to staying in mexico to keep them from trying to go to the u.s. so they will be making this case. is anyone really going to be listening, and as you know, fred, a week from tomorrow that's when the first 5% of
tariffs would go into place. we're already seeing that have a major impact. the mexican peso has fallen and people are really feeling like the clock is ticking here. patrick ottoman and sarah westwood, thanks to both of you. appreciate it. >> still ahead. more than 7 million people under flood warnings and the danger is far from over with more heavy rain expected this week. we'll take you to the flooded neighborhoods next. get it! get that butterfly! you know those butterflies aren't actually in the room? hey, that baker lady's on tv again. she's not a baker. she wears that apron to sell insurance. nobody knows why. she's the progressive insurance lady. they cover pets if your owner gets into a car accident. covers us with what? you got me.

right now over 7 million people are under flood warnings along the arkansas, mississippi, missouri and illinois rivers and more rain is expected this week, even as several communities remain virtually underwater following last week's flooding. the arkansas river is expected to crest in the small town of dardanelle and rising waters forced a nearby levee of to breach. cnn national correspondent natasha chen got a bird's eye vancouver all of this damage along the arkansas river, and she's joining us now from dardanelle so give us the latest. >> well, fred, that's right. it's going to crest here in this area today, but you can see this water is still encroaching upon us on the ground here. this is going to take a long time to recede. this is supposed to be a highway. this is the speed limit sign. 55 miles per hour, but this is closed right now.
you can't even tell where the road s.today is the first day that folks have been getting a look at the damage, assessing the damage in the long process to apply for a disaster deck la ray, and we also got a look at the damage from above. >> this is my family land right here. it's all under water. >> there's usually cattle all over this property, but joseph says most of the cows have now been moved to higher ground. >> financially this area will be devastated three to five years due, to you know, the lack of income and not being able to produce any crops. >> reporter: crops like corn, soybeans, rice, which are distributed to other parts of the country. he says he sprays pesticides and fertilizer for a living so he'll have to find work in other states. right now we're flying over a wildlife refuge, and it's close to where the levee of breached. we can tell you the opening is already bigger than it was a day ago. >> this dam farther north is structurally sound, even with
the unusual violent flow of water. senator tom cotton grew up in this area. >> hard to describe how abnormal this is. if you go up the river a little bit to the highway 7 bridge there's entire baseball parks and baseball goals that are completely submerged under water. >> we saw blackhawk helicopters dropping large sandbags, one of the ways local states and federal partners are trying to mitigate the damage, and however difficult the challenge is the mayor says they will get through this together. >> this is dardanelle. this is what happens. i can literally put a facebook message out right now and within 30 minutes i could have 100 people. that's how much i believe in this town. >> this is the example of crops that are completely flood out. the governor got a look at places like this today in dardanelle. he said earlier this week that because of the disruption to the navigation system here the state of arkansas is actually losing
$23 million a day, fred. >> wow, that's extraordinary. an extraordinary loss for so many. mat somewhat chen. thank you so much. >> still ahead, trump's acting defense secretary now confirming the white house did ask the military to keep the "uss john mccain" out of the president's view. how the white house is responding next. let's be honest. it's kind of unfair that safe drivers have to pay as much for insurance... as not safe drivers! ah! that was a stunt driver. that's why esurance has this drivesense® app. the safer you drive, the more you save. don't worry, i'm not using my phone and talking to a camera while driving... i'm being towed. by the way, i'm actually a safe driver. i'm just pretending to be a not safe driver. cool. bye dennis quaid! when insurance is affordable, it's surprisingly painless.

>> we have liftoff. >> welcome back. act being defense secretary patrick shanahan now confirming the white house military office asked the navy's seventh fleept to keep the "uss john mccain" out of president trump's sight during his recent trip to japan. >> the white house military office coordinated directly with the seventh fleet and they gave a directive that the "uss john mccain" should be hidden from view. the directive was not carried
out. all ships remained at normal configuration during the visit. the "uss john mccain" was not moved and the name was not obscured. >> so the u.s. navy previously told cnn that the request had been made to lower level navy officials, but it was not known who specifically received the directive for keeping the warship named for john mccain and his grandfather out of sight. president trump tweeted he knew nothing about the request and said whoever did it must have been, quote, well-meaning, end quote. mccain and trump were frequently at adds before and during trump's president. joining me now is rekird air force colonel cedric leighton. now that shanahan is saying, okay, there was some knowledge
of it. does it make it any better. >> no, it doesn't. we're getting into communications with subordinate nunts. they went straight to seventh fleet skipping at least three three layers of command, something that they thought was unpleasant for the president out of the way and that's what we have is a way of getting around the bureaucracy. >> talk to me about how significant and big it is, you know, to -- to have orders carried out about the movement of any ship. it doesn't just involve a phone call and one member of personnel, but doesn't it
constitute a lot of bodies and planning involved? >> absolutely. i've worked with seventh fleet before, and every time they move a ship and have a deployment there's hundreds if not thousand of people involved depending on exactly what you're doing. in this particular case would you have had the sailors on the "john mccain" involved and the command all the way up through seventh fleet and probably pacific fleet as well, and there's a lot of moving marts to this and it's not very easy to move one ship to another. they are big and have logistical requirements. you have to fuel them and provide all kinds of things for them. this is a complex matter and always it is. >> and even though you have the white house military office apparently making this request, is it pacifying at all to hear that shanahan saying that the directive was not actually carried out in the. >> yes, it is.
it shows that cooler heads prevailed and the chain of command said wait a minute, we need something else that we're going to do here and someone stood up and said it's improper to do this and not something that we'll do, and in this case it's a good thing that's stepped in and understood the political ramifications of doing so and that's what they did that. >> this request or intended acat the root of it was really about protecting the president's feelings. it the didn't have to do, at least it's being expressed with nothing else, but talk to me about the importance or the concern about how any assets of the military are used to pacify or please the president's feelings or, you know, his
election pursuits. how unsettling is it that the military would be used in that mapper or directives would be used with that in mind? >> it's usually unsettling because what you're looking at here is the manifestcation of the politicization of the military so what that really means is that the person occupying the white house, president trump or anybody else, would be using the white house for their own partisan agenda, and that's something we've south to avoid really since the founding of the republic. we have rassett of rules and have civilian control of the military, yes, but we also have a non-partisan military and, in fact, it goes all the way back to traditions where we had, you know, people that weren't allowed in the military, not allowed to vote in the elections
until the 1950s because of those issues. >> colonel, thank you so much. >> you better, fredericka. >> and we'll be right back. it's amazing what you can uncover with your dna results from ancestry. i was able to discover one cousin, reached out to him, visited ireland, met another 20 cousins. they took me to the cliffs of moher, the ancestral home, the family bar. it really gives you a sense of connection to something that's bigger than yourself. new features. greater details. richer stories. get your dna kit today at ancestry.com. with verizon up, we won luke bryan tickets. it was amazing. so we are walking through the crowd. you know you have your badge and you're just, all you got to do is wave it up. we're like, "okay these are pretty neat seats. i wouldn't mind sitting here." but he's like, "nope, we're still going." they took us all the way to the front. there's an area sealed off just for verizon up members. it made me feel like a celebrity.

all right. hours from now president trump will board air force one to embark on his state visit to the uk. you might recall his last meeting with queen elizabeth causing quite the stir. he kind of stood in front of her and that's a big no-no, but trump is hardly the first president not to the follow proper protocol at every turn. here's cnn's max foster.
>> we met with the queen who is absolutely a terrific person. >> there's one last thing that i should mention that i love about great britain, and that is the queen, and so i'm very much looking forward to -- >> it's my honor to offer toasts to your majesty, head of the commonwealth and queen of canada. >> thank you, mr. triples of canada, for making me feel so old. >> meeting the queen, is a moment that's memorable for movement. >> there's a clear royal etiquette to follow when you're introduced. >> a man would make a dignified short bow, a lady has the option of curtsying. if the keep proffers her hand you should take it, but you should not initiate contact. >> however, these rules often get lost in the moment.
>> this woman alice frazer made headlines in 1991 when she hugged her majesty during a trip to washington, d.c. but politicians and celebrities are amongst the worst offenders. >> in 1992 australian prime minister paul keating put his arm around the woman who is his head of state. in 2007 hollywood royalty mickey rooney kissed her hand. the queen of netherlands also went for a kiss. >> and the queen of fashion anna wintour caused a stir when she didn't remove her glasses, and then's the u.s. presidents. poor timing by president obama led to this awkward musical miscue. the vitality of our special
relationships between our people and in the words of shakespeare to this blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this england. to the queen. >> michelle touching the sovereign. george w. even winked at her. and then there, hugo's first. >> the u.s. awaits the next state visit. max foster, cnn, london. >> a few oops moment but it's all delicate, nonetheless. still ahead, trump's dirty nasty word impeachment appears to be gaining traction, at least among democrats. are voters inching closer to
