7:14 pm
over it. here's what he's talking about. last sunday at talladega, late in the rates, joey blocked matt and it forced them below the yellow line. later, kenseth's car, he was caught in a wreck. he was able to walk away. he had words afterwards in the care center. he said i promise you we'll race again. logano said if we worked together, we could have run up front. let's do a little role playing, jeff and -- >> jeff, you be logano. darrell you're matt kenseth. let's go to last year in kansas. >> you're in the chase. >> but i'm faster than you. snie i got to win. >> i got to win this race to make the chase. you know that. >> i'm just racing hard. i'm just racing harley davidson. >> right there. that was so -- >> i didn't mean that to happen. it's part of racing. >> then talladega in the fall. >> yeah. here we are coming down pit road. you cut over in front of me. what's the problem, man? >> whoops, was that kenseth i came down from the third lane in

7:16 pm
to float it in there. >> i didn't wreck you. you checked up. >> you're my teammate. >> but you checked up. would you not have done the same thing? >> you might be right. i maybe did check up a little too much there. >> doesn't matter if you're -- you're going for the win. >> i'm going to text you monday. we'll straighten it out. >> mars gives candy to the winner. kyle brought it over. you better get a sucker after that whining. >> little mars chocolate. he was waiting on that one. >>we're good, right? >> i hope so. >> right up until i'm behind you on the last lap. >> both kyle busch, carl edwards each have two wins but have not won on had track before. it could get testy. speaking of greatness here, kansas city royal george brett, the grand marshal of the go bowling 400. eddie money performed a pre-race concert. while we don't have two tickets to paradise, we have michael waltrip bowling with the king, the hall of fame royal and a rookie. >> hey, i'm at the fan zone at

7:21 pm
i grabbed the column, steered it with my hand but did not hit the wall. that happened with another hendrick chevrolet earlier in the year with jimmie johnson in phoenix. it's unusual. he admitted here driver error. >> that coupler used by hendrick motor spots made by haas, you have to pull it back to get it to latch on or lock on. if you rush and get out of your routine, it's easy to make that mistake. >> i bet i was pulling it back and forth 20 times before i went out on the truck. >> he said pull on your while, when he did it came off. i've had night mace of that happening. that is treacherous. it's the driver's

7:26 pm
close finish. watch out what happens in the pit tonight. there's a lot going on there. decision to be made. tires are good. do we take two? do we take four? you better get all five of the lug nuts on there. particularly the last stop. >> darrell and jeff will head up to the booth to call the race. we'll continue here on the fox business network until baseball wraps up on fs1. you won't miss a thing. the weather is outstanding. the drivers anxious to go. it's nascar live from kansas. you both have a perfect driving record.

well, joining me now, pat buchanan, senior adviser to three presidents, twice a candidate for the republican presidential nomination, nationally syndicated conservative columnist, best-selling author, and all-around great american. good to have you with us tonight. and let me just say, how do you feel after watching a candidate that you've supported throughout get to the finish line? >> well, i think it is an extraordinary event. this is extremely impressive. here's a total outsider who i didn't think when he first got
7:45 pm
into it that he could do well, but i did think by july, i said, this guy's going to be in the finals. but it is an astonishing achievement, lou. there's no question about it. and there's a real possibility donald trump could be the next president of the united states. >> you know, i think there's probably no more sure empirical evidence of that possibility, pat, than the number of leading democrats who are already just biting at his ankles and going after it. it's, it appears that the democrats are far more afraid -- they got what many of them said they wanted. they have donald trump as the nominee. >> i think they're very comprehensive about donald trump, because there's a real x-factor. he does extremely well in the republican primaries, which have the largest turnouts in all of history. and he's done well in traditionally democratic states. and more than that, lou, they know they've got a candidate who, frankly, is not a great candidate. hillary rodham clinton, you've
7:46 pm
got bernie sanders has been chasing her all through these primaries. he beat her last night. and i think they realize that, you know, that if the country's looking for change, they're not going to want to vote for hillary rodham clinton. and even in the democratic party, they know the country's looking for change. >> right. you know, he represents, it seems to many people, and i'll speak, certainly, for myself here. he is a disruptive force in the body politic in washington, d.c., which is to be kind, fossilized in ideological terms that just defy the -- any way in which to actually move the nation ahead. >> you know, the vote for trump is quite specifically a national repudiation of the beltway establishment of both parties, including the republican party, which the trade deals they've had, with their failure to secure the borders and deal with the immigration issue, and with
7:47 pm
all these wars they've gotten us involved in, they seem unable to win or end. and so i think it really is a repudiation of establishment in d.c. and the whole country, and again, i'll even point to bernie's votes out there in the democratic primaries and caucuses. they're a rejection of washington, as well, and what's happened to the wages of working people. >> yeah, and those are issues that both you and i have been focused on for many years. it is so exciting to see a candidate who has set the agenda, who has pushed forward the issues, the novice, who was dismissed by so many at the onset, when -- back on june 16th of last year, he enters the race, he has defined the agenda throughout the entire process, hasn't he? >> he's not only defined the agenda, we were told these 17 republicans of the others were
7:48 pm
the cream of the crop, the greatest field ever been put into a primary process. and he defeated them one after another after another. and frankly, he did it on issues. and i've mentioned to others, he's got three aces, lou. the immigration issue is number one, the trade issue, the jobs issue is number two, and the foreign policy issue. america first is number three. i think the country wants this. i think you've seen, again, hillary clinton, sort of moving over on a number of these issues. so i think he's got the bit in his teeth and i think the democrats are right to be nervous. >> and the republicans are already showing signs of coming together and moving behind trump, which, of course, will be essential. >> i think -- you know, here's why. first, trump has a real interest in uniting the party. he wants them all behind him. they've got an interest in uniting, as well. they have both houses of congress, with the presidency, that means you've got the supreme court.
7:49 pm
lou, i was in richard nixon's white house all four years of his first term. he had four supreme court appointments. we could have four supreme court appointments in the first term of the next president. and you've got to tell a republican, look, i know you may be unhappy, you may be with cruz, you may be a moderate republican, you may not like trump, but who do you want picking the next four supreme court justices? >> pat, we have that discussion very quietly. we don't want the democrats to pay attention to that possibility. pat buchanan, great to have you with us. good to see you. >> good to see you. we're coming right back. much more straight ahead, stay with us. up ahead, ted cruz just seemingly can't catch a break. not only did he lose the republican race for president, well, this video has gone viral, because of an unfortunate incident. matt schlapp and lee carter join us next and they'll take that up. stay with us. my m...about my toothpasteice. she eveand mouthwash.ice... but she's a dentist so...i kind of have to listen.

country for a very long time. it was a misstatement, because what i was saying is that the way things are going now, we will continue to lose jobs. that's what i meant to say. >> ted cruz officially out of the race, but before he was able to walk offstage, he suffered one more embarrassment. the senator from texas embraced his father. as he did so, he accidentally elbowed his wife, heidi, right in the face. joining us now, chairman of the american conservative union, matt schlapp, political communications strategist. good to have you both with us. >> great to be here. >> let's start with the fact that now you have the republican party has a nominee, is he going to be able to close the deal in november? >> i think so. i do. i think the energy, the momentum, the people that are excited about donald trump are really excited. and they are contagious. and i think he has now time to
7:55 pm
get the republican party to rally around him. and i've also seen tracking this over the last several months is that he has an amazing appeal among independents and even democrats. we have seen these open primaries. he really gets these people in, and he needs those going to the general. and hillary clinton just, quite frankly, she does not have that appeal right now. >> matt, establishment republicans, are they ready to embrace the man who is decidedly anti-establishment and who has, as we said, is reaching out to a broad swath of americans who haven't been interested in before. >> it's like sands through the hourglass, lou. slowly but surely it's build up and more and more people are realizing that this is what they need to do. but look, it's also on donald trump, quite honestly. which is he's got to court them. he's a very talented, charming, skillful person. and he's got to charm them and meet them and bring them aboard. he has that ability to do that. he's not going to get them all,
7:56 pm
but he's got to get as many republicans in this country on his side. i think there will be a significant number of democrats he picks up, and he'll get a majority of independents, i believe. but he's got to get that base of republicans solid. so he's got time to do it, and i'm optimistic, cautiously optimistic he could win in november. >> you know what gives me pause, in terms of how well and how quickly the party, brought together. i share both of your expressions of optimism. but there is a group of conservative establishment folks who are just hard-headed to a -- i mean, they're extremists. i don't know if they're going to come around. by the way, one of the groups is the club for growth. they have come part of the way, already. and it's a process. this is very, very emotional. and i completely understand that. and there's one in four voters right now that are republicans, that are saying, i will not vote for trump, no matter what. the same exact thing happened in 2008. the hillary voter said, i will
7:57 pm
never vote for barack obama. and you know what happened? they voted for barack obama. because at the end of the day, donald trump has a job to do right now. he's got to approve that he can appeal to those other people that he's appealed to, but now he's got to bring people inside. and it's not going to be by changing his personality. it's by demonstrating that he can bring those people together and he can show some -- it's almost a period of mourning they have to go through. you know, lou, i think it's a little bit about their ego. they predicted for months, all over media, that donald trump was going to implode and has no chance. and i also think these people, they are elitists. they are not listening to the voters from across this country. who are going to give donald trump more primary votes than any other republican primary candidate in my lifetime. and i think they're disdainful of the democratic process. and i'm okay with this hurting them a little bit. >> yeah, and i think that trump has already gone to considerable lengths to be gracious with his words when he's talking about kasich or cruz, whomever it
7:58 pm
might be, reince priebus, but how important is the vice presidential choice he's about to make over these next couple of months. how important is it to him? >> it's very important. i think most times, people are saying, you know, the vice president doesn't matter all that much. i think right now, it does. and it's not just about getting the women's vote. it's not about -- >> who should he get? >> i think it's going to have to be somebody who's going to show some kind of balance. i think it's got to be the ying to his yang. some people have said it should be kasich. i don't think it should be john kasich. >> that's a lot of yin. >> i think it should be somebody that's more establishment. marco rubio. somebody that's going to shock everybody. somebody that's got experience with government and that's going to say, we've got an outsider and an insider and we're going to get this job done and together it's going to surprise everybody. >> matt? >> i think a great pick would be
7:59 pm
somebody like a bobby jindal. >> who? >> i don't think he should -- >> governor jindal. bobby jindal from louisiana would be a great pick. he's a strong conservative. he's been a reforming governor, someone from the southern part of the country, and i think someone like that would be a great benefit. i think donald trump is a unique presidential candidate in the sense that he is smart to put out there a potential supreme court pick. he is smart to go out there with who might be advising him on foreign affairs, who might even be his chief of staff. because he has no political experience, he ought to give conservatives and americans an idea of who he will surround himself with. >> you're not suggesting he do this before the convention, are you? >> no, but i think he should tease it out as ego forward and show folks, he's going to pick good, smart people around him and east going to demonstrate that. >> i totally agree. >> you don't think most people think he's going to make smart, good choices? >> i think everybody's saying he should start changing his tone, start acting more presidential. i 100% agree with you. i think he should start acting presidential by association.
8:00 pm
that's what he should start doing. >> matt, she's got the last word. thanks for being with us. >> i'm used to it! >> thank you both. >> thank you. >> thanks for being w >> treasures stashed in the attic! >> they hadn't been touched for 40 years. that was like [gasps] shocking and exciting. [ camera shutter clicking ] >> history saved from the trash! >> she was a dumpster diver. >> she absolutely was. >> can these heirs cash in on their startling discovery? >> it's hard to believe that you had an ansel adams lining a drawer. >> and your reaction? >> "wow." [ chuckles ] [ camera shutter clicks ] >> but it's not so black and white. >> did you say to yourself, "uh-oh -- legally, maybe i can't do this?" >> i was concerned about that. >> will this photo finish... bring riches...or regrets? >> i was also feeling like, if i sold too many, then i would lose that part of my mother.
