the muslim students' association resurrected that and they shoot an e-mail that said they wouldn't send anybody to the event. which they have a right to do. but that they would also issue a few words of caution about my controversial religious and political views. we know what that does effectively, it scared everyone. and the sponsoring organization and duke university decided they would pull the invitation. i asked them for the evidence. and then a day later they decided to reinvite me after they looked at the quote, variables. >> and you went down there and you talked to nine people. apparently everybody else had been scared off. what -- this is troubling. i mean, obviously, there are a lot of people who want to hear what muslim women face in the world. but, apparently, there are forces at duke university who don't want that to happen. >> well there are forces in our world. and i call these forces the honor brigade.

4:17 am
democratic pollster jestsica. where do you -- does she actually stand with women right now? >> she stands with women completely. that data isn't correct. buzz feed did an analysis. they found she paid men and women equally. and actually, women ended up coming out on top and earning more over the period 2002 to 2008. i think there's not strong ground to stand on there. >> your response to that? >> well, look, i think hillary clinton feels that she see entitled to the women's vote like she feels she's entitled to the democrat nomination. that's a dangerous appreciation. she's not a compelling candidate. this is someone that david axelrod has admitted a polarizing figure. she doesn't practice what she preaches. she says she's for women's rights, but the clinton foundation had no problem taking money from repressive foreign governments and foreign countries like saudi arabia. that's going to be problematic
4:18 am
for her. >> let me ask you this, the clinton foundation did take money from saudi arabia, kuwait quatar and more. known for their horrific treatment to women. i pose this question to you, jessica. is that standing with women? >> i think that -- you can't justify everything. i don't think that's necessarily right. they use the money for good things. but does it justify it, not completely. i think that i want to return to the point i originally made which is that republican talking point is she paid $0.72 on the dollar -- excuse me $0.72 for women versus a dollar for men and that's not what happened. >> do you believe? you have to look at the whole person and what they do. do you believe on one hand she can say i stand with women and open her hand and accept money from countries who are malicious in terms of their treatment for women? >> it's a black spot but we need to look at what she did in the senate. she was a co-sponsor of a
4:19 am
paycheck fairness act. these work in her favor and she's doing well with women and leading the republican field by 25 plus points. >> what it highlights is just how bad hillary clinton is. she says one thing and does another. this is someone that says she used a private server for convenience. we know that's not the case. this is some that voters cannot trust. we're seeing that in the polls in critical swing states. voters don't trust hillary clinton. i think the problem she has if she focuses on women's issues she will not only alienate the women voters, but she's going to alienate men let's face it women aren't single issue voters. we care about the economy, we want a candidate to be authentic. we care about a candidate we can trust. >> voters are looking for consistency here. we want to thank you both for joining us.
