good morning. i'm victor blackwell. and your mother told me >> and i'm christi paul, so all her life that i should fix it. grateful to have your company and now it reminds me of her. here as we begin with faith and politics, hosting five 2020 i'm just glad i never fixed it. listen, you don't need to go anywhere dad. presidential candidates in atlanta this week. >> senator elizabeth warren, meet christine, she's going to help you around the house. bernie sanders, cory booker, the best home to be in is your own. julian castro, former hud from personal care and memory care, secretary and mayor pete to help around the house, home instead offers personalized in-home services buttigieg joining some of the biggest names in christian for your loved ones. ministry to pitch black voters home instead senior care. to us, it's personal. on their vision for the future of the country. >> so vanessa, so far is there a theme this year, a take away? >> reporter: hi, good morning, christi and victor, in vjust a short while bernie sanders and elizabeth warren are going to be taking the stage behind me making their pitch to church
leaders and millennial black voters. yesterday we had julian castro, cory booker and pete buttigieg here. of all of those candidates pete buttigieg has the toughest inroads to make with black voters consistently polling at about 0%. i asked him if one of the reasons he thought he might not president trump appears to be putting some space between be able to connect with this himself about his comments community is because maybe some previously about background of the more conservative black checks, and now right after the voters wouldn't be able to mass shootings in texas and accept his sexuality because of ohio, the president had strong support for tightening their moral and religious beliefs. background checks. he kind of skirted the question he avoided talking about when i asked him that saying specific measures, but called people really just care about for common sense, sensible, what platforms he's proposing. i did ask a millennial voter important meaningful background here that same question. checks. but now it appears he's avoiding take a listen to what she had to say about it. the phrase altogether. >> i do think the older black instead of shifting now, he's going to mental health. so what does this mean for the voter, like my dad, 70 age, will possibility of gun reform nationally? joining me now brian robinson, have an issue, and my father and republican strategist, president i have discussed it because i'm of robinson republic pr and like dad, what would you like to have, donald trump or a guy who former regional director for president obama's 2012 campaign likes a man. why do you even care about that. i do think my generation, even and president of paramount maybe a little older the 40s are
kind of out of that now. consulting group. brian, what does this mean? he went from 18 references of we don't care about what you're background checks to going to new hampshire and saying it's doing at home. all mental illness? >> we've seen this pattern >> and you hear from that voter before after a mass shooting, he there that it's maybe the older comes out and seems open to generation that might have a little tougher of a time having some sort of reform on gun control, and then he starts accepting pete buttigieg's talking to some republicans in sexuality. the younger millennial congress, starts talking to some generation very much open to it. of his supporters, starts this crowd here today will be talking to some folks at the nra black millennial voters, and the and begins to back off a little issues they want to hear from bit. the fact of the matter is some bernie sanders and elizabeth warren are gun control, you of the stuff he mentions know, the mass shootings just happened in dayton and el paso. probably polls plus 50% in the country. they also want to hear them talk >> plus 90% for some of it. about education and also student >> but not in the majority of debt. republican primaries, which the many voters here we spoke to say people in congress, his base in congress is going to be most they have heavy student debt bills that they are still paying attuned to. off. republican voters still by and as these two candidates take the large do not want to see this, stage voters want to hear from them on the issues that matter and i think -- to them and those three issues >> the polls prove that's not are really at top of mind for true. if you look at the latest voters here today. quinnipiac poll after parkland, christi and victor. >> we'll look forward to their there was also one that came after the congressional baseball remarks. shooting, 90-plus percent, vanessa yurkevich thank you so much. black, white, all age groups, we spoke to the cofounder of all political affiliations, gun
the black church pac and former owners, non-gun owners all were ceo of the democratic national north of 90%. convention committee, talked to some of them were within the her earlier this morning. >> listen to what she has to say about the new generation of margin off error of everybody. african-american voters. >> we know that the >> here's where i disagree. african-american community is you do see those spikes not monolithic. sometimes after those shootings we have all stripes, all kinds, and then we begin to normalize and people kind of go back to and so these are young voters their corners after a period of time. who are some of them voting for here's the thing, the people who vote on gun rights, they are the first time who are very engaged. some of them who voted for the first time in 2018 to help flip high limo bi the house, and so they are high ly mobilized, highly vocal. interested in pocketbook issues. they're very involved in any gop many of them are dealing with primary, and they are -- they vote on that issue, and so for student debt, and they're startistar starting their careers or a republican legislators midpoint in their career and particularly sticking with the want to know about second amendment is the safest political route and avoiding the gentrification and housing and the pocketbook issues that will slippery slope of gun control. help them. some of them are entrepreneurs. >> so let me put this to you, they want to know about access republicans and brian's right, to capital. plenty of them are single issue these are the things they are concerned about, and of course voters, and that single issue is as african-americans there are the second amendment. are there enough single issue the issues that affect us democrats who are hoping for an disproportionately, gun control, end to gun violence to balance over policing, intimate partner violence, things like that, so this to see if there can be some they want to talk about those as actual legislative change? >> i think what we have to do,
well. >> and we must bring in cnn victor is kind of separate the senior political writer and partisanship. brian is right, i mean, the nra is a strong force that controls analyst mr. harry anton. not only the votes but a lot of >> hey, it's been a long time. the money that funds these campaigns of the gop. how are you guys doing? >> good morning, harry. a lot of these republicans and >> good morning. also the president, the nra is >> good morning. so talk to us about some of the not going to be on the ballot in 2020. a lot of these members of numbers that you have come up with here that you've uncovered, congress who are not speaking up the president's approval rating about bringing true gun reform to this country. the other thing is this, this among black voters what did you pivot to mental illness is find out? something that, yes, i'm happy >> what i essentially did is aggregated our last three cnn to see president trump doing, but let's not forget, victor, this is the same president trump polls so we could get a as soon as he came into the breakdown by group but also by white house, he rolled back some age. i broke it down between 18 and of the obama era policies that 49-year-olds and those 50 and older. what we essentially see among were in place that made it black voters is donald trump is harder for people with mental illness to actually get access not very popular, no matter what to guns, and so now, two years later, he's now pivoting to age you're looking at but especially those younger black mental illness. that's another thing, too, i voters, age 18 to 49. think we've got to say. a 5% approve rating. it took the shooter in dayton 94% disapprove of him, and this only 30 seconds to kill nine is really not surprising people. now, while mental illness is a obviously because black voters part of the gun reform gun tend to be very democratic. control issue that we've got to even these numbers are low for a republican president. have conversation about in this let's put aside the president for a second and concentrate on country, but it's also about
making sure we don't give access the democratic primary race. to guns to people like this what i did was looked up gentleman who i believe was out to basically inflict hate. potential democratic primary voters and said let's break it the other thing i want to say is this. >> quickly because we've got to down by age and see how many of go to break. >> the thing about this is also, those voters consider themselves the democrats start talking democrats and what percentage about true gun ownership consider themselves independents. this is really interesting to responsibility for the people who actually own these guns. me. what we see here is that among you can talk about that and not take away someone's second that younger age group, that 18 to 49-year-old age group, what amendment. >> stay with us, i'm going to ask you to come back. we see is a much lower we've got a lot of other things percentage of those potential democratic primary voters to talk about, north korea, the missile launches and a proposal consider themselves democrats. from the white house to cut just 68% do versus 32% who foreign aid. quick break, we'll be right back. consider themselves independent. johnson & johnson is a baby company. among those age 50 and older, 85% of those consider themselves democrats so there's nearly a 20 point age gap on that. we can transfer that over to the democratic primary race right now overall and i think that number gives you an inclination of why. i broke down that under 18 and 49 and those 50 and older. what do we see? although joe biden leads among both groups his lead among
african-american voters age 50 and older is significantly larger than among those 18 to 49, while bernie sanders sees also a pretty large generational gap. we see him doing considerably better among 18 to 49-year-olds doubling his support. that to me isn't so surprising. if you recall that last slide i pointed out was that younger african-american democratic potential primary voters more of them consider themselves independent and bernie sanders does better among that group, and that was exactly what we saw if you go back to 2016 where we but we're also a company that controls hiv, saw that bernie sanders did fights cancer, considerably matter among the repairs shattered bones, youngest african-americans in the electorate. relieves depression, he actually won restores heart rhythms, african-americans age 17 to 29 while losing those age 60 and helps you back from strokes, and keeps you healthy your whole life. older by 80 percentage points. bernie sanders is someone who does considerably better with from the day you're born younger african-american voters while joe biden is someone who we never stop taking care of you. does considerably better with older african-american voters. >> so let me ask you specifically about former vice president joe biden who has led
consistently in the polls of primary preference among so chantix can help you fromquit slow turkey.key. african-americans. when they say they prefer joe biden, do they say why? along with support, >> yeah, i think one of the key chantix is proven to help you quit. things, there was actually a fox with chantix you can keep smoking at first news poll that was put out this and ease into quitting. week. chantix reduces the urge so when the day arrives, essentially it asks do you want basically to build on obama's legacy or do you want a new you'll be more ready to kiss cigarettes goodbye. approach? and what we saw was african-americans were far more when you try to quit smoking, likely to say they wanted to build on obama's legacy and that with or without chantix, you may have nicotine withdrawal symptoms. same fox news poll found that stop chantix and get help right away if you have changes in behavior or thinking, african-american voters were most likely to support joe biden. i think there's a real aggression, hostility, connection between joe biden and depressed mood, suicidal thoughts or actions, the african-american community in part because he served as the seizures, vice president to the first new or worse heart or blood vessel problems, african-american president. it's not all of it, but it sleepwalking, or life-threatening allergic and skin reactions. certainly explains a lot of it. >> all right. this is kind of random. decrease alcohol use. >> very. >> i love random. use caution driving or operating machinery. i'm a random guy. >> i understand that you made a tell your doctor if you've had mental health problems. full screen, what we call these the most common side effect is nausea. things you'll see on our screen quit smoking slow turkey. in a moment, that has to do with why you hate school. talk to your doctor about chantix. >> yeah. >> what? >> i hated school. school was the worst. i know school started down by
you folks in the atlanta public school started this monday, past monday, in new york city it doesn't start until next month. let me just say, i love the fact that i no longer have to go to school. i hated waking up early. i hated being told what to do. i get told what to do a little bit here. >> don't you do those things? >> i get to wake up early and hang out with folks like you versus going to school with all those kids who made fun of me for being a nerd. >> all your teachers are cursing you right now harry. >> we don't make fun of you for being a nerd. >> i love both of you guys, thank you for having me. i hope you go see some sun later on today. thank you very much. ? harry anton. >> thank you so much. >> bye. >> bye. breaking news for you now, police say that the man in this surveillance video you see here, the one they say was seen on video dropping off rice cookers in new york was taken into
custody. >> three rice cookers described as suspicious devices were discovered yesterday morning in manhattan. that prompted a brief scare. police say the man was found, this is what is so perplexing, he was found unconscious at an address in the bronx and is currently in the hospital. we don't have a lot of expounding on that. >> not many details beyond that. we do know this he was taken in brian robin son, theron on a previous warrant urn relnr johnson back. to friday's incident. he has not been charged. i want to talk about north the new york city medical korea. examiner's office says jeffrey there have been six missile tests from north korea in the epstein died of suicide by last month. no repatriation of the korean hanging. this a week, of course, after he was found dead in his cell at war dead in almost a year. the metropolitan correctional the president calls his north center. he was awaiting trial on charges korea policy a success. he operated a sex trafficking ring and paid girls as young as how? >> they're still talking to us to some degree. when he tweets and says this 14 for sex. now, he had pleaded not guilty. isn't a big deal, i don't think >> epstein's lawyers say they are not satisfied with the any -- i don't think he believes that. i don't think the people in his medical examiner's conclusion. administration believe that. they plan to independently if he does believe it, i think investigate the circumstances it's the minority opinion within surrounding his death. his administration. so north korea's been obviously it is a big deal. conducting new missile tests. look at how he's carefully wording it. that it's not outside of our president trump doesn't seem
particularly concerned about it. we're talking to congressman ted current agreements. >> but it's outside of u.n. sanctions. >> it's outside of their current yoho about that and so much agreement with the u.s., he is more. meantime, the staggering very specifically saying. look, this is a big deal, but let's not forget two years ago number of falsehoods, misleading statements and some of them we all went nuts when he said fire and fury, threatening a outright lies from president trump since he's been in office. nuclear holocaust. we've got the latest count. this is better than that. and we have some new video and let's maybe give him a to show you, former nascar driver and broadcaster dale little bit of credit. he has put a lot of time into this issue, a lot of time into earnhardt jr. taking the weekend developing this relationship. off after surviving the plane crash you're looking at there. i think what he is doing is looking long-term, which i would say is not always his strong you're also not only going to see some more of this new video but hear from witness who is saw point, but he's looking him and his wife and his long-term to try and find a deal daughter running to escape that. that will last. he's trying to be polite, he's earn unlimited 1.5 miles trying to be diplomatic. and we'll match it at the end of your first year. >> the obama administration nice! i'm thinking about a scuba diving trip. didn't have much success with kim jong-un, so i mean, the woman: ooh! democrats were critical. are you in a place to be (gasp) or not. you okay? yeah, no, i'm good. critical? >> yes, because i think that earn miles. we'll match 'em at the end of your first year. while he did -- the the president did go over and foster that's ensure max protein, yeah, no, i'm good. a relationship with kim jong-un, with high protein and 1 gram sugar. but he basically his diplomatic it's a sit-up, banana! approach has failed. bend at the waist! i mean, because at the end of i'm tryin'! the day, he's had this ongoing keep it up. you'll get there. whoa-hoa-hoa! communications that we haven't seen any progress.
30 grams of protein, but also, at a time where you and one gram of sugar. ensure max protein. just laid it out, victor, we saw that they're basically using some of these missile testing exercises in south korea. while we are here in this country, we know that they're testing missiles day in, day in, day in. i think the key is the president needs to understand this has just been a failed diplomatic process on his part. >> the white house is considering a $4 billion recession package to cut funding to the united nations, to the northern triangle, el salvador, honduras, two republicans sent a letter to the president saying this would undermine significant national security and antiterrorism efforts, complicate the ability of the you ever wish you weren't a motaur? administration and congress to sure. sometimes i wish i had legs like you. work constructively on future appropriations deems. h yeah, like a regular person. -- deals. no. still half bike/half man, just the opposite. how big of a deal is this cutback? >> this is a human dege deal to oh, so the legs on the bottom and motorcycle on the top? republicans and democrats. what we have here is that a president basically thinks that the white house can just do whatever it wants. i mean, he's running it like yeah. it's a business. yeah, i could see that. what the president is failing to
for those who were born to ride, there's progressive. realize is you have to have cooperation and participation from congress, and so you have these members of congress that are saying look, this foreign aid is something we shouldn't cut. let's look elsewhere where we can make those cuts. don't cut this foreign aid. >> let me come to you on -- you know, we haven't done this in a while, the "the washington post" just released its latest count of the president's false and misleading claims, 12019. he crossed 10,000 on april 26th and has been averaging 20 bunked claims a day. we have been using this version of a kid's game, how many gum balls in the jar. there's one gum ball on this shelf. we've now filled 22 jars. brian, how does the republican party stand behind a president who's made 12,019 false and misleading claims? >> i think the republican party feels very comfortable in going this is coming from an outlet that the president and many of his voters see as the enemy. and they've said that. and look -- >> truth is truth "the
washington post" reports it, whether cnn reports it. >> that's easy for you to say. >> yeah, it's very easy for me but we're also a cancer fighting, to say that china's not paying their tariffs. hiv controlling, very easy to say that he knew joint replacing, about the payments to stormy and depression relieving company. from the day you're born daniels. >> you all have not been republican communicators in this we never stop taking care of you. country, and let me tell you, the incredulousness that we take from the media is not applied to democrats, and why is that? it's because these fact checkers are usually liberals themselves, and they see the world -- >> facts don't have a political angle. >> a lot of this isn't facts. a lot of this is perspective, and they really read into it. >> wow. >> i love the gum ball image. it is either true or it is not, and 12,019 of those are false and misleading. >> i disagree with that that it's true or it's not. a lot of it is perspective. >> you can disagree -- >> liberals see the world differently than conservatives. that shapes how they see things. >> i can't believe you are
arguing this. >> brian robinson, theron johnson. i've got to send it back you. >> thank you, gentlemen. we have some new video to show you of that incredible u.s. officials have classified images that shows iran is getting ready to launch escape for nascar legend dale earnhardt jr. and his family a rocket in the next few days. after their plane crashed in tennessee. back in a moment. iran insists that the launch will be peaceful and put a satellite into orbit. however, it will use the same technology needed for an intercontinental ballistic missile. >> the type that could someday strike the u.s. for context. missile launches aren't banned you had 2015 nuclear deal that tehran signed with the u.s. >> north korea has fired off six missile tests in the last month, rejected further peace talks with seoul but they have received little criticism, very little from the trump administration. the president has dismissed pyongyang's missile tests as standard, very much under control. joining me now republican congressman from florida ted yoho. welcome back. >> thanks for having me on.
>> certainly always good to have the first survivor of alzheimer's disease you on. let's start here, the president is out there. has dismissed these saying and the alzheimer's association is going to make it happen. they're short range, can't reach the u.s., but of course they are within reach of american but we won't get there without you. servicemen who are in the region and americans who are nearby. join the fight with the alzheimer's association. are you as forgiving as the president is for the latest actions from kim jong-un? woman: (on phone) discover. hi. do you have a travel card? yep. our miles card. earn unlimited 1.5 miles >> you know, i would like to see and we'll match it at the end of your first year. nice! i'm thinking about a scuba diving trip. the world community come together, especially the 12 woman: ooh! nations that voted unanimously (gasp) or not. you okay? to put sanctions on north korea. yeah, no, i'm good. earn miles. we'll match 'em at the end of your first year. this is a violation of those u.n. sanctions. as far as the president, i don't but we're also a cancer fighting, know what his strategy is. i don't know what he knows that hiv controlling, i don't know. joint replacing, and depression relieving company. we know that our servicemen, we've got about 20,000 servicemen and women over there. from the day you're born we never stop taking care of you. this is something they have been in harm's way. i feel that kim jong-un is just working to get attention, but he needs to tread very softly and very cautiously, and these are not things that i would recommend that he does because they are very provocative. this is why we got into that
situation in the first place -- >> you're going a step further than president trump has in suggesting that he should stop those. this president has not said anything suggesting that these are counterproductive to getting into to a denuclearization deal, and i always like to have you on because you're the ranking republican on asia-pacific and nonproliferation in the house on that subcommittee so you have a different perspective. why isn't the president going as far as you are right now? he's meeting with him face-to-face, can he not turn to this friend who writes him letters and say stop it? >> well, for exactly those reasons. he's got inside information i don't have, so i don't know what his strategy, like i said in the beginning. this may be a strategy that he says will let him do this but we know what's coming underneath of this, and so i'm going to defer to the president on that, but i think for kim jong-un to be doing this, i think it's a very dangerous thing, and again, keep in mind, there were 12 nations that voted unanimously to put
sanctions on north korea. russia and china have backed off. other nations have backed off, and this is something we need to from the day you're born come together, it shouldn't be just the united states. i can't believe it. it should be that coalition of that sophie opened up a wormhole through time? those 12 nations forcing these sanctions to bring kim jong-un to the negotiating table. (speaking japanese) where am i? >> so let's put up on the screen (woman speaking french) are you crazy/nuts? those tweets that were up a cyclist: pip! pip! moment ago. this is from september of 2018. (woman speaking french) i'm here, look at me. it's completely your fault. (man speaking french) ok? it's me. it's my fault? the president tweeted, kim jong-un has agreed to allow no, i can't believe how easy it was nuclear inspections subject to to save hundreds of dollars on my car insurance with geico. final negotiations and permanently dismantle a test (pterodactyl screech) site and launch pad at the presence of international experts. in the meantime, there will be believe it. geico could save you 15% or more on car insurance. no rocket or nuclear tests. hero remains continue to be returned to the united states. there have been no inspections, no international experts watched the dismantlement of a launch pad. rocket testing is back, and there's been no remains repatriate since that tweet. how can the president continue i want to begin with new to call his north korea policy video taken moments after a private plane carrying nascar legend dale earnhardt jr. successful? >> well, i think when you have crashed in tennessee. >> take a look at the video. three meetings between kim
you see dale jr., his wife, jong-un and president trump, that's never happened before in that's all on the right of your history, and what you have to screen. their 1-year-old daughter understand and i'm sure you escaped this burning plane. now they're followed quickly by already know this, is when you start negotiating, especially in the plane's pilots, the family an asian culture, it's all based dog. the ntsb says the plane slid off on people you know, people that a runway thursday afternoon and you have a relationship with made a really hard landing. >> it bounced at least twice we instead of, you know, americans are so used to, here's the deal. know before the right rear sign the line and we part ways. landing gear collapsed and then you can see what happened. this is built on relationships the flames and the smoke. listen to the 911 calls from the and this president has met more people who are watching. than any other president in the history of the world. so i'm going to give him credit for that. >> it just crashed right across i think that's a very bold the street, right in the statement or action by our highway. there's fire everywhere. there is somebody getting out. president, and, again, he's got inside information and he may be they're trying to get out now. there's a baby, one, two, three, working something behind the scenes that nobody knows about four, five. and someone give him the leeway, five people and a dog. again, i think we need to put the pressure on the other communities in the world to put >> dave feherty has more. pressure on north korea. >> we're certainly not seeing the fruit of it. >> you can see black smoke when the president tweeted a year ago he has agreed to this, pouring out of the back of the plane and a man running towards the wreckage. we haven't seen that agreement moments later flames shoot out come to fruition. from one of the wings seconds >> i agree. >> i apologize for the delay. before the door to the plane we always have this back and pops open.
forth when you're there in scrambling to get out are dale gainesville and i'm here in earnhardt jr. and his wife amy atlanta. china says it will retaliate in and two pilots. a couple of weeks for the new their first concern is dale's tariffs that have been announced 1-year-old daughter she was by the president. this is what president trump hanned to tha handed to the first person off the burning plane who rushed her said just a few days ago right to safety. the video shows one person after that report about what falling to the ground and then the family's dog running from china's planning. the wreckage. these two women called 911 from watch. >> we're taking in massive their office nearby watching in amounts of money, billions and horror as flames spread across billions of dollars, steve, as the plane. >> i just couldn't believe it was happening, especially right you know, and i think the longer here in front of our office, and it goes the stronger we get. >> the longer a trade war goes the stronger the u.s. gets. then when we saw them escape and do you agree with that, that it them hand a child out both of our hearts just sank. strengthens u.s. businesses, it was really scary. that the country got stronger the longer a trade war drags on? there wasn't much time for them to get out and it really is a >> i agree that the u.s. gets miracle that they got out before the flames overtook the plane. stronger. >> both women say it was just 30 victor, this goes beyond a trade war. there's a great book written by seconds to a minute later before a second explosion caused flames michael pillsbury called the 100 to engulf much of the play. year marathon that lays out we could see investigators around the plane for much of the strategically what china is doing. day, feet away skid marks in the this is an adjustment that has to be made for america's grass from the cessna business sovereignty.

or a safer world. >> congressman, i've got to step in here because i had a young man on, marcell mcclinton earlier this morning and he is one of the organizers of one of the rallies. he's involved in the rallies, recess rallies today calling for gun safety measures. he was in 2016 teaching sunday school when a shooter started shooting. a friend was shot through both legs. he survived, and i asked him what he would want to say to you. i just want to play this. i won't interfere. i'll play it, and then i want you to respond. >> sure. >> understand that blood is on your hands. people in america are dying because of your inaction and because of your ties to whatever gun lobby or special interest group is holding you hostage and preventing you and holding you back from putting forth and signing onto legislation that is literally proven to save lives. background checks are not controversial. the nra has made this into something that it's not. these are the most widely supported pieces of legislation that we've seen in our country
introduced. they have passed in the house with overwhelming bipartisan support. senator mcconnell is holding them up in the senate, and this -- the more and more that we sit back and don't act and sign things onto legislation that is going it save lives, that americans fully support. more americans are going to die, and you will go to sleep at night knowing that blood is on your hands from shootings at schools, churches, walmarts, shopping malls, street corners and households. this is not the time to sit back and say i need permission from the -- donations from the nra. >> what's your response to marcell? >> number one, i sympathize with him for the suffering he went through and saw and he'll have that for the rest of his life. i think he's off base. the nra doesn't control my vote or probably the majority of the members in the republican house. we support the second amendment, i will stand firm with the second amendment. the one thing he didn't talk

michelle, or is there something we really should be strategizing right now? >> well, you know, you just can't be looking at the daily gyrations of the market. if you're in it for the long haul, you just got to close your eyes. you know, just tune it out. go spend some time with your family, learn how to cook, you know -- >> forget about it, is that it? >> you've got to forget about it. if you have a long horizon. >> what if you don't? >> even if you are close to retirement and retired, look, the way we run things now, you're going to live probably a long time, 20 or 30 years past retirement. you're going to need growth during that time period. if you run scared and pull all your money out and put it in cash or bonds, you risk luosing your money to inflation. and even though inflation has been low, you still want it to have some growth so you can buy the things you need in the future. >> okay. so if there are people looking at this going i've got to move
some stocks out. i got to get some bonds, is there a downside to that? >> i mean right now you're going to like lock in your losses, that's what they say. we're down, so you're going to, if you move it now whatever losses you have you're going to actually realize those losses. listen, i get it, right? i didn't come from money. i understand a lot of people are thinking this is my hard earned money. what is this woman talking about? she is not going to be buying me my groceries, but here's the thing. if you have a good diversified portfolio that you've looked at a plan, you know what you're going to need, then you need to ignore what's happening in the stock market on a daily basis. >> okay. i have 30 seconds left and i have to get to this because this is something victor and i said this morning. >> yes. >> what if we just cash it out? >> i want to yell bank. >> cash it out? are you two insane? >> there are people having this conversation, though, they're saying -- >> okay, i get it.
