3:00 pm
their future. this is how we inspire hope. this is how we heal. cancer treatment centers of america. appointments available now. welcome to "unfiltered." here's tonight's headline, "slow down, joe." after attempting to turn the page of a not-so-great week, the 2020 front-runner, joe biden, just speed read through policy proposals. how did biden's pitch, the final one of the day, how did his pitch play out in the room? >> reporter: well, s.e., joe biden came here to the convention and you saw a lot of biden supporters here holding up signs and cheering during various points of his speech, biden trying to make his pitch
3:01 pm
in south carolina, which is a state that's important for all 2020 democratic candidates but particularly for joe biden who will be placing a lot of emphasis in this state where he's been a known political figure for quite some time. in his pitch he reminded voters of the times he served with barack obama in the white house and take a listen as he once again tried to make this a campaign, a fight between himself and president trump. >> you all know in your bones that this election is more important than any one you've ever been engaged in. we have a president who encourages white supremacy, encourages dictator and goes around the world weakening our alliances. and our children are watching. they're watching. it matters what presidents say and do. barack obama they watched and emulated. they wanted to be like him. [ cheers and applause ] four more years of donald trump will permanently change the character of this country. we can't let that happen.
3:02 pm
we have to beat donald trump as the overwhelming period that we have. >> reporter: as you mentioned, biden raced through a list of policy proposals and unveiled new policy when comes to criminal justice reform, saying he wants to eliminate mandatory minimums and there should be no private prisons. but biden was one of 22 candidates who was here making their pitch to south carolina voters, particularly black voters, which make up the majority of the democratic primary electorate and heading after this, they're going to be heading down to that debate in miami where we're going to see so many of them face off directly later this week. s.e. >> arlette saenz. it's a long day. we appreciate all your reporting. it was a day of stump speeches lashing out at president trump, some intra party barbs, some subtweet ing.
3:03 pm
but 22 of the 23 democratic candidates got their moment in the south carolina sun today. so who made the most of it? let me bring in former senior adviser to president obama david axelrod, communications director dug hyde and from "the washington post," david ehrlich. the biden campaign really leaned into the segregationist controversy, not only by not apologizing but demanding booker apologize to biden. now booker says no one needs to apologize. what do you make of his handling of it this week? >> his handling of it is more significant than the issue itself. campaigns are replete with things that look decisive at the moment and don't become decisive. but what you see is a pattern that should be concerning, whether it was the hyde amendment or this we can using language he shouldn't have used
3:04 pm
and then stumbling around it for a while and then in each instance staff explaining they tried to tell him not to use the language, tried to tell him not to say it. all of these are warning signs for the biden candidacy. the two things i think are most troubling is that he has to overcome an impression, a, that his time has passed, that he's kind of living in the past and, b, that he's perhaps too old. and so these stumbles matter more for a candidate like biden than it would for another candidate. >> david swerlic, biden's leading in polls among african-american voters but his support is softer than hillary clinton's and he recited old memories to bussing and friendships with dixiecrats. how important was this for him. >> he's already got a lead generally and in national
3:05 pm
polling and with black voters, as you say. he doesn't want that to shrink and lose ground to senator harris, senator brown, senator booker and others as we head into the cnn debates later this month. i don't know if he was so successful at that. that speech he gave just now was just sort of a pro forma speech, looked like he just wanted to get on and get off the stage rather than turn around to the audience and say, look, forget what you've heard, there is joe biden 2.0. it seems like his campaign wants to coast a little on the idea he's affiliated with president obama, that people are comfortable with uncle joe and that may get him far but it's going to be harder once people can attack him directly in debates. >> it seems to me like biden's
3:06 pm
by cry o c cryogenetically frozen. he could joke about the hyde amendment or getting too touchy feely with women. we're not in that place. that campaign is from another era. why do you think no one's told him this? >> i think what we've seen is staff members, i am trying to do this, i am trying to fix this campaign. we're kind of in the first 20 minutes of austin powers right now. here's a way that joe biden can make those same points and move forward, not remind everybody he's been in the senate for almost 50 years. he can talk about working on the violence against women act. that's a bipartisan issue where republicans have struggled. he tried to bring kanter and republicans in. we had pretty good negotiations on that. he can talk about working with john mccain. it can set up biden to be back in the trump versus joe fight
3:07 pm
that always benefits him. >> also, i think it's been a mistake for biden to not give more interviews. he's in essence starving the press, which means we only have these controversies to focus on. should he give us more access? wouldn't in wouldn't that only help him? >> i think he's going to have to. they played it very, very close to the vest, very little exposure, very little interaction with other candidates. i don't think you're going to get away with that from this point on. we're entering a new phase starting with the debates and i think he's going to have to show -- listen, for joe biden in my view, for him to be the nominee of this party, he has to show that he's up to it, that he's vigorous enough and that involves exposing yourself in ways he hasn't exposed himself yet. he has to pass this test. he is probably, as we sit here today, the candidate who is most likely to defeat donald trump if we were voting today, but he has
3:08 pm
an eight-month exam or more than eight months ahead of him in which he has to prove he is vigorous enough and that he is not locked in the past but he's looking to the future. >> david swerlic, i thought turning to cory booker now, i thought he was really smart in his speech. it was very biblical. in a state like north carolina where there are a lot of religion african-american voters that seemed intentional. >> where king was slain, there are words, joseph's brother's words that they uttered before they grabbed him and threw him into a ditch. these are the words that are written where king is displaying a challenge to us, obehold, her cometh the dreamer, let us slay him and see what becomes of the dream. >> he went on. your thoughts on that approach here. >> there was a little bit of obama there. when he needed it, when he was campaigning in the south, when
3:09 pm
he was talking to particular audiences, african-americans, southerners, he wanted to bring in the bible, he wanted to bring in that old time religion. i think what cory booker is trying to do there more than anything else is say that he's animated and he's ready in contrast to biden. senator booker is an establishment, low boil, glass half full, let's all get along type of guy. in that speech there, i think he was signaling i got a little attention this week and i'm going to try to roll this into the debates with a little momentum. about what doug was saying a minute ago, the think the thing that the biden camp hasn't figured out or biden hasn't figured out, no one expects him to be cutting edge of a racial discourse. they do expect for him to be nimble and on his feet and he did not demonstrate that this week. >> we have another clip from
3:10 pm
biden where he was talking about criminal justice reform, it was a refrain we heard today from a lot of the candidates. take a listen. >> criminal justice reform. there are too many people in prison, too many black men and i might add black women in prison. look, in our administration, we started to address the problem, reduced federal prisons by 38,000 people came out. we passed the supportive school discipline initiative to break the school-to-prison pipeline, but we need to pass bobby scott's -- bobby scott from virginia's safe justice act. we've got to add a few things i've been proposing. no more mandatory minimums period. end private prisons, which we did in our bill period. >> there was a lot there, doug. i'm just -- i'm wondering, though, this was okay, this was a speech. he will get questions about criminal justice reform. his role in where criminal
3:11 pm
justice reform is today will be asked at a debate. do you think he's ready? >> i think he's trying to demonstrate that he's ready. he had a laundry list on a whole lot of topics, criminal justice reform being one of them. he has several things he can pivot to. the assault weapons ban, he's the only one who can say he had a part in it. >> do you think biden should make a big foreign policy pivot given all of his experience there? >> i think that's a big thing for him going into this debate. he has a superior portfolio of experience on foreign policy, and one of the things that he will be selling is that i know this terrain, i know this turf, i know the world and. we need firm foot, especially
3:12 pm
after what we saw with the president last week, the ten-minute drill with the president. so i think that that is an advantage for him, and he will raise it. you must say, bernie sanders is going to be standing next to him and he's going to say you have all this foreign policy experience and it led you to vote for the war in iraq and that was a terrible mistake. so he has to be a little bit sensitive to the comeback. >> david axelrod, always so grateful for your time and expertise. doug and david, stay right there. when we come back, we're going to talk about bernie sanders, in a fight for second place. es it . the visionary lexus nx. lease the 2019 nx 300 for $359/month for 36 months. experience amazing at your lexus dealer. you ever wish you weren't a motaur? sure. sometimes i wish i had legs like you.

3:16 pm
because tomorrow belongs to those who welcome it with open arms. citi. welcome what's next i want to say a few words about an interesting event that was held in charleston earlier this week, sponsored by a national organization called third way that represents the corporate wing of the democratic party. a group that receives a substantial amount of their support from wall street. at this third way meeting, i was called, quote, an existential
3:17 pm
threat to the democratic party. now why am i an existential threat? well, maybe it's because my administration will finally take on the insurance companies and the drug companies and pass a medicare for all single payor program. >> well, that was bernie sanders earlier today lobbying a grenade during his speech at the south carolina democratic convention. let's talk more about bernie and elizabeth warren and some others. my panel returns. joining us is co-founder of third way, matthew bennett. matthew, sanders lit into you guys today in south carolina. we just played the sound. i want to get your response. >> yeah, it's not the first time. he came after us in a tweet earlier this week and wheent on chris cuomo's show earlier this week. heres the thing that senator sanders gets wrong.
3:18 pm
he thinks we think he's an existential threat to party because of what he would do as president. that's not it. he's an avowed democratic socialist and our fear is an avowed socialist just cannot beat trump. that is an existential threat to the republic. >> he's trying to turn it around to make him sound sort of intimidating. but i think we know what you meant. but if i'm a democrat, i might be thinking, hey, we listened to the center left establishment last time. they told to us vote for a deeply flawed establishment candidate because she was most electable because of bernie where a lot of the energy was. why should voters trust what the center left is saying this time? >> a couple of things. first of all, we just had a big national election in 2018 and the center left absolutely crushed republicans in house races, in governor races, even in a couple of senate races. second thing is hillary was a flawed candidate. she did make some serious mistakes and she lost by 77,000 votes between three states.
3:19 pm
we just won those states in governor's races by 1.3 million votes with senator left gubernatorial candidates we have a blueprint for victory. that's the one we ought to follow. >> david, bernie's been quietly sinking in the polls while elizabeth warren's been rising. when asked about that earlier this week, he decided it was her gender, not her ideas were the problem. he said i think we're running against a lot of problems, there are certain number of people who would like to see a woman elected. turns out bernie really is a bro, maybe the original bernie bro. that really landed with a thud. did that hurt him? >> that really landed with a thud and his comments on third way. he continues at the state convention to go after a think tank when what he can do is, a, push his sort of nordic style democratic socialism, make the
3:20 pm
best case he can for that, try and be update and not do -- >> have you met bernie? >> fair. in a way, he did the same thing vice president biden did. he used an awkward quote to make a point about race and civility that landed like a dud. these guys are going to have to go on their own merits. they aren't the unicorns of donald trump and hillary clinton. >> i think matt's right. i don't think socialism is a winning general election message. i'm surprised it's working in the primary. there doesn't seem to be a democrat in this field who is willing to run as a real moderate. so why not? >> i think they see where the party is and how the party shifted. this is why biden shifted on the
3:21 pm
hyde amendment. safe, rare and legal for abortion used to be very safe space for democrats in a general election. it's a very unsafe place for the democrats in a primary. every time nancy pelosi calls mitch mcconnell the grim reaper, team o'connor goes ching ching. >> can i disagree with you a little bit about the moderates, s.e.? you have sanders a declared socialist, elizabeth warren and pete buttigieg are progressives. i think of senator harris, vice president biden and congressman o'rourke as moderates. >> in what way? name a policy. >> they've tagged left on a number of issues because, as you say, the party is moving that way. >> name a policy that can appeal to blue collar voters in ohio. that kamala harris supports.
3:22 pm
>> that kamala harris supports? >> yes. in what way is she a moderate? >> she's a former prosecutor. >> so? >> she's a former prosecutor. in that first town hall she did with jake tapper, she got a little ahead of her skis saying medicare for all, let's just pay for everything. since then she has tried to dial that back. that's popular. i'm not -- >> i don't buy this. matt, i'd love your opinion on this. i feel like and i said this, you know, last week, i feel like moderate has just become a catch phrase to describe someone who can talk to blue collar voters without offending them. and it really has nothing to do with policy. it doesn't have a whole lot to do with ideas. it's really more of like a tone thing. >> well, i think that may be right. we live in a world in which donald trump has upended politics so thoroughly that there really isn't a continuum among right and left like there used to be and divisions that
3:23 pm
existed in the 90s don't exist anymore among things like social issues. and there is a big division. it's one of the reasons that sanders is going after us, the difference between running as a democratic socialist and democratic socialist ideas, like medicare for all, and people who aren't. the mainstream candidates running at democratic capitalists who believe capitalism is broken and needs to be repaired, those are the peoplebyi people beating trump. >> doug, matt's making a point that elizabeth warren has a better chance of beating trump than bernie sanders. i think republicans would much rather face elizabeth warren than bernie sanders. what do you think? >> i think they'd be happy with either choice, if they could pick out of their two or three top choices it would be them. it seems to be more personal with warren. warren when she made her comment of you didn't create that business, you didn't build that,
3:24 pm
that spoke directly to republicans and why they run, why they work in republican politics and that's everything they stand against. it's personal with elizabeth warren. and then you have the native american issue. >> oh, i remember. >> could talk for hours. >> thank you all of us for joining us. that was a great, great conversation. let's do it again sometime. all right. another week, another candidate of the week joins me. stay tuned to find out next. with numbers.
3:25 pm
so, i started with the stats regarding my moderate to severe plaque psoriasis. like how humira has been prescribed to over 300,000 patients. and how many patients saw clear or almost clear skin in just 4 months - the kind of clearance that can last. humira targets and blocks a specific source of inflammation that contributes to symptoms. numbers are great. and seeing clearer skin is pretty awesome, too. that's what i call a body of proof. humira can lower your ability to fight infections. serious and sometimes fatal infections, including tuberculosis, and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened, as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure.
3:26 pm
tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. want more proof? ask your dermatologist about humira. this is my body of proof. 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. but prevagen helps your brain with an ingredient originally discovered... in jellyfish. in clinical trials, prevagen has been shown to improve short-term memory. prevagen. healthier brain. better life.
3:27 pm
hi, do you have a travel card? we do! the discover it® miles card. earn unlimited 1.5 miles on every purchase, plus we'll match your miles at the end of your first year. you'll match my miles? yeah! mile for mile! and no blackout dates or annual fee. nice! i was thinking about taking a scuba diving trip! i love that. or maybe go surfing... or not. ok. maybe somewhere else. maybe a petting zoo. can't go wrong. can't get eaten. earn miles. we'll match 'em at the end of your first year. plus no annual fee or blackouts. the discover it® miles card.
3:28 pm
bernie sanders may have popularized democratic socialism, but he's not the only candidate talking about it. one, in fact, is putting it squarely in the cross hairs, telling other democrats that socialism will not beat donald trump. >> socialism is not the answer. i was re-elected -- i was reelected in a purple state in 2014, one of the worst years for democrats in a quarter century. >> today colorado governor john hickenlooper made a similar sort of argument in south carolina. listen. >> we need a dreamer and a doer. we need a progressive and a pragmatist. now being a pragmatist doesn't mean saying no to big ideas.
3:29 pm
being a pragmatist means figuring out how to get them done. >> governor hickenlooper is my candidate of the week. he joins me now. welcome to the program. >> glad to be on. thanks for having me. >> so you've begun to carve out a very interesting niche for yourself, the anti-socialism candidate. i said earlier i don't think socialism is a winning general election message at all, but i'm not a progressive democrat. do you think you can survive this primary by, you know, sort of casting your target, your focus on socialism? >> yeah, i think that i actually -- if you look at what we've done in colorado, right, we've got to near universal health care, we beat the nra with some tough new gun laws and we're the number one economy in the country for the last three years. we did all this without a massive expansion of government. we did it by bringing businesses and nonprofits together.
3:30 pm
we brought democrats and republicans together and i think that's the message. as a small business person and entrepreneur, we took that kind of scrappy spirit into achieving progressive goals but without having to have big government. >> so for people who aren't familiar, just to be real clear, is your aversion to socialism about electability or is it really an economic aversion? >> well, i this i both. i mean, i think in terms of ele electability, republicans will call us socialists and that is if we don't fight back and clearly say we are not socialists, that's going to make an election in 2020 much harder. and i also would argue that socialism doesn't work. it's not the successful way of solving the real challenges we face. if we're going to address not just universal health care and achieving that, making sure that health care is a right and not a privilege, but actually controlling the inflation of health care, we're going to need to bring businesses and
3:31 pm
nonprofits together, the same thing i was talking about before, republicans and democrats, it's got to be joined in together. the same thing with climate change. any of the big challenges, we need to be working to the. >> listen, you're preaching to the quite with me. i think massive expansions of government are both unelectable and problematic. you said this week you'd immediately give 11 million illegal immigrants a ten-year visa so they can live and work out of the shadows. i agree. that's a huge priority. but how would that encourage anyone to immigrate here legally if you're giving out visas and bernie sanders is giving out health insurance? >> well, that's a double -- two different issues really but i can see how they can come into violent conflict. you know, making sure that the people that are here illegally get a ten-year visa and take
3:32 pm
down that anxiety, this is a key point in history because we've got something like 7.5 million unfilled skilled jobs and only about 6.3, 6.4 million people looking. so we don't have enough workers, even with those undocumented workers here in the country. and the vast majority, 90-some percent are working. so we can't afford to lose those workers. so why not give them a ten-year visa and let them go to work. and if they commit violent crimes, we deport them. this is political chicanery for president trump to say we deport all these people. it would wreak havoc in our entire economic system. >> maybe he knows that. there was a last-minute reprieve on some of those i.c.e. raids. we'll see what happens in congress over the next few days. governor john hickenlooper, thanks so much for being here tonight. i appreciate it. >> thanks for having me.
3:33 pm
>> up next, the president calls off a strike on iran after he ordered it. he calls that common sense. i call it confusing. here are even more reasons to join t-mobile. 1. do you like netflix? sure you do. that's why it's on us. 2. unlimited data. use as much as you want, when you want. 3. no surprises on your bill. taxes and fees included. still think you have a better deal? bring in your discount, and we'll match it. that's right. t-mobile will match your discount.
3:34 pm
i was told to begin my aspirin regimen, blem. and i just didn't listen. until i almost lost my life. my doctors again ordered me to take aspirin, and i do. be sure to talk to your doctor before you begin an aspirin regimen. listen to the doctor. take it seriously. dna results fromt you with your 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.

[ sigh ] introducing an easier way to move with xfinity. it's just another way we're working to make your life simple, easy, awesome. go to to get started. in the red file tonight, tempering tensions in iran after the president pulled air strikes minutes before they were scheduled to go. here's what he said today. >> everybody was saying i'm a warmongerer, and now they say
3:37 pm
i'm a dove. and i think i'm neither you want to know the truth. i'm a man with common sense, and that's what we need in this country is common sense. but i didn't like the idea of them knowingly shooting down an unmanned drone and then we kill 150 people. i didn't like that. >> there's been mixed reactions to trump's missed messages on iran from, well, everyone. some are calling him weak, some are praising his restraint. what's next? with us is admiral john kirby. you remember as well as anyone the reaction to obama's, well, abandonment of red lines in syria. some are comparing trump's decision to call off the strikes to obama. is that fair? >> i think to the degree that it talks about the further erosion of american credibility on the world stage, particularly with potential adversaries, yeah, i think that's a comparison and i
3:38 pm
understand that. there are some key differences. number one, obama actually made a very public red line and then walked back from it. trump didn't actually lay down a red line that the iranians crossed. pompeo said a red line would be if they killed american troops. they didn't. they walked right up to that line and shooting down a drone. they're poking trump without actually crossing it. obama said he wanted to postpone the strike to seek legislate of approval for further actions there and in the future, and it was all about getting congress on board. i don't see any indication that trump cares one way or the other whether he needed legislative support for what he was trying to do. and, lastly, this is a crisis of trump's own making. obama was reacting to, as the world was reacting to because the brits wanted to react, too, to serious violation of international law, gassing their own people. this is a crisis of trump's own
3:39 pm
making. he is responsible for the escalation of the tensions we're seeing right now. obama was able to secure diplomatic success as a result of the whaalking back from the redline. the russians came in and we got most of the chemical weapons out of syria. >> thank you. that was really interesting points and you were uniquely positioned to make them. i appreciate it. so trump tweeted today about major additional sanctions on iran on monday. is that the next logical step from your point of view? >> i think it's the next step this administration intends to pursue. pompeo just released a statement within the hour basically saying economic pressure is going to continue. what worries me is this maximum pressure campaign they keep talking about is just not working. there's no end case that additional sanctions are going
3:40 pm
to bring iran to its kneeknees. yes, the economy is in trouble but they'll trouble push through this. the maximum pressure campaign has only exacerbated iran's behavior. what i worry about is not just the next step but the next ten or 15 steps. where's the long-term strategy here? >> we have reports that trump was influenced in this last event by fox news host tucker carlson's private advice to not attack and also that the president is actively ignoring national security adviser john bolton, whom, by the way, carlson called a bureaucratic tape worm and trump called him today definitely hawk. it would seem untenable to try to craft a coherent foreign policy while the president is letting television hosts usurp his own advisers publicly. >> it's not uncommon for presidents to have kitchen cabinets. this one has a cable cabinet and he listens to them.
3:41 pm
on one hand i totally agree with you that it is a very difficult thing for external advisers to be getting in the way of those accountable for the advice they're giving. if it's true tucker walked him off of that, i applaud talk uck person what worries me more is the utter dysfunction inside the policy making process inside this administration. there is no cohesive iranian foreign policy. y there's no strategic coherence. they say they don't want war but everything that they're doing is walking up closer to war. it seems like aside from sanctions all they're looking at are military options. i'm worried more about the dysfunctions inside the lifelines, not outside. >> admiral kirby, thanks so much as always.
3:42 pm
i appreciate. >> you bet. >> next, i get to geek out with brilliant m.i.t. scientist about going to the moon and matt damon. what? sit tight. -the bed is huge.rdy. it has available led cargo area lighting. lights up the entire bed. it even offers a built in 120 volt outlet. wow. plug that in for me. whoa! -holy smokes! -oh wow! and the all new silverado has more trim levels than any other pickup. whoa! oh wow! -very cool. there's something for all of us. absolutely. it's time to upgrade. (laughter) not this john smith. or this john smith. or any of the other hundreds of john smiths that are humana medicare advantage members. no, it's this john smith. who we paired with a humana team member to help address his own specific health needs. at humana, we take a personal approach to your health,

after her. i'm thrilled to have you on the program. >> s.e., thank you for having me. >> let's talk about this anniversary of the moon landing. what did that moment to you as a young girl? >> so i was very young when that happened. i got to stay up late to watch the first steps on the moon. and i was already hooked on space science. i started at a very, very young age, but it changed my life. and it just -- it just made me realize what was possible when you dream big. >> well, there's some debate now, as there was after 11, about whether we need to go back to the moon. what do you think? is that imperative or should we sort of look elsewhere? >> so there is a great deal to be learned about the moon in its
3:48 pm
own right. our studies using the moon rocks, which are continuing today, have really revolutionized our understanding not only of the moon but of the early history of earth at the time when life first emerged and also taught us a great deal about the solar system, how the solar system formed. and there's a great deal more to be learned about that. but the moon is also important as a weigh station. i think we all agree that mars ought to be our next destination, but there are so many things that have to be tested to have a successful mission. and being three days away at the moon is -- there's a lot to be said for that because once you start on the path of going to mars, you're gone for a couple years. >> yeah. well, senators are now getting classified briefings on unos, which is really exciting i think. do you think we'll know whether there's life out there in our
3:49 pm
lifetimes? >> yeah. actually, i've asked to be briefed on those but that hasn't come to pass yet. there are so many discoveries of planets around other stars and including planets in our -- what i'll call our own solar system neighborhood, but planets far beyond that. there are so many galaxies. now we're seeing that most stars in our neighborhood have planets, so it's likely that most stars in other places have planets as well. and just given the probabilities, the only difference between say a rock and a life form is that a life form can feed itself and reproduce. so it seems kind of unlikely that the conditions that would allow that to happen only happened on this single planet. so i'm a believer that there is life in other places and we certainly out to be looking for it. >> well, i asked you this
3:50 pm
earlier, your favorite space movie. you said it was "the martian" because it was one of the most realistic except for two things. what were those? >> the two things -- well, the two major things in "the martian" that were shortcoming, the first was they didn't treat the matter of radiation. one needs to shield for radiation and they didn't talk about that at all. it was just an assumption that it was done, but it's certainly a major be and the other one is that the -- -- the atmospheric pressure at the surface of mars is 6 millibars or it's the altitude that spy planes fly. when the win blows it's not blowing over a rocket. and so, you know, when i talked to matt damon after graduation he said but maria we needed
3:51 pm
something to strand me there. >> that's artistic license, right, for you doctor, thank you for coming on. i really appreciate it. >> thank you be sub s.e. >> don't forget to watch the cnn film apollo 11 tomorrow night at 9 eastern. i'll be right back. freedom is the ability to go where you wanna go... and do what you wanna do. so... what do you wanna do? ♪ the 2019 jeep compass. roam free. since my dvt blood clot i was thinking... could there be another around the corner? or could it turn out differently? i wanted to help protect myself. my doctor recommended eliquis. eliquis is proven to treat and help prevent
