tv   Fox News Night With Shannon Bream  FOX News  July 3, 2018 8:00pm-9:00pm PDT

8:00 pm
the country and its culture. don't forget to tell us how we are doing on twitter @ingrahamangle. shannon bream on the "fox news @ night" team are up next we have a wonderful independence day holiday coming to you and yours, good night from washington. ♪ >> shannon: this is a fox news alert. he is still in the decision-making process and it's already getting ugly. we are going deep inside the battle over the supreme court nominee to replace retiring justice anthony kennedy. plus, another deadline on the calendar. this time perform a national security advisor michael flynn to appear in court. the judge wants answers as to why he has not been sentenced following his guilty plea. later, is the future of the democratic party socialism? dnc chair tom perez it says it might be after self-proclaimed socialist ousted a longtime democratic congressman and as her primary race. hello and welcome to "fox news @ night." i am shannon bream in washington. the president saying today that you will spend the first part of the week interviewing candidates
8:01 pm
to become his supreme court nominee. some democrats failing to obstruct the confirmation process for anyone he picks, making the future of roby weighed the centerpiece of their outrage. it now appears as some have been pushing false claims about the potential front runner amy coney barrett. we begin with ed henry. >> breaking tonight, president trump was interviewed a total of seven candidates to be his second nominee to the high court, a pick that will be unveiled next monday. is that the civil war seems to be boring among republicans over two of the leading contenders. new today, the president interviewed another three potential supreme court justices in addition to the four he had spoken to including appellate court judges and utah senator mike lee. remember, lee told you he was honored to be considered at all and he added today, he thought the phone call was a phone call interview with the president, went very well, hard to predict which way the president was headed. despite not being able to predict what the president was going to do, doesn't matter for some conservatives who are
8:02 pm
strong among themselves over which of the seven candidates already interviewed are more true to the cause as the president gets this rare chance to put his stamp on the court. the controversy focused on some social conservatives spreading where they do not believe one finalist, brett kavanaugh, is tough enough in his opposition to abortion rights. they would prefer another finalist, you mentioned, amy coney barrett, as more solidly pro-life. some of this opposition is being pushed by officials with march for life, very influential group of course that holds the annual march in washington. vice president mike pence among the luminaries who have spoken there. conservatives are raising questions about brett kavanaugh's commitment to overturning obamacare. to that point, the best selling author rose to his defense, "feel due to principle, sometimes require setting aside one's own preferences. he is come under fire in some quarters of the right for a handful of opinions, notably two involving challenges against obamacare in which he aimed to
8:03 pm
rule fairly. he has no love nest test on abortion. it's unclear if the pressure against kavanaugh will matter in the end. speaking in west virginia, where he honored military veterans out of july 4th, the president teased out the peg as democrats continue to suggest they will block anyone regardless of their credentials. >> this is such an important decision. we are going to give you a great one. we will announce it on monday. i think you will be very impressed. >> will use every tool at our disposal >> will use every tool at our to first be able to highlight what the nominee stands for. >> that is a democrats message right now, which is oppose everything i do nothing. frankly, it's gotten really sad that their party has no message, no leadership, no solution. >> sanders out there is no litmus test on roby weighed. having sanders insisting, and tm upholding the constitution, a
8:04 pm
good judicial sentiment, those are the real litmus test at the president will bring to the process. >> shannon: quite a job interview. ed, thank you. the federal appeals court in washington is seen as a professional stepping-stone by many to the supreme court. three current justices served on that bench before joining the high court, as did the late justice antonin scalia. a top edge of the d.c. circuit is poised to make a leap but if history is any guide, he could face an especially tough senate confirmation. here's a look at judge brett kavanaugh. >> i solemnly swear -- >> it is the image that may cement or sink the supreme court aspirations of judge brett kavanaugh. >> i chose him because of the force of his mind, his breath of experience, and the strength of his character. >> the former loyal aide to president george w. bush, close friend, and advisor as a white house lawyer and a staff secretary, traveling atop d.c. legal and political circles, earning the confidence of power
8:05 pm
players, like karl rove. his elevation to the federal appeals court was celebrated with a rose garden swearing and by fellow catholic in our retiring justice anthony kennedy, for whom kavanaugh served as a law clerk in 1993. it came after two years of contentious delay tactics by democrats who claimed that kavanaugh was overly partisan. because you cannot think of another nomination, given mr. kavanaugh's record, more designed to divide us. this nomination appears to be judicial payment for political services rendered. >> shannon: sources said that opposition from the left was fueled by concern that kavanaugh could one day sit on the supreme court. >> i consider myself a republican and i support president bush. >> shannon: those close ties may now create concern from the current president, giving trump's past rhetorical run-ins with the bushes. trump 2008 he seemed to back impeaching president bush for the iraq war, which trump said would be a "wonderful thing." candidate trump in 2016 had
8:06 pm
repeated verbal clashes with rival jeb bush, former florida governor. >> job doesn't really believe i believe i'm unhinged. he said that very simply because he failed in the campaign. it's been a total disaster. no one cares. >> shannon: as for kavanaugh, he brings a stellar resume. dl law school, top deputy to special prosecutor ken starr's probe of bill clinton that led to the president's impeachment. on the bench, the 53-year-old has been a reliable conservative on his court, raining in dozens of administrative decisions of the obama white house. but conservatives are at odds over whether a 2015 ruling on obamacare signaled his implicit support of the law. debates whether kavanaugh would limit access to abortion, since he's never directly in front of the issue as a judge and hasn't said publicly whether he would overturn roe v. wade for eight days ago, he dissented in the appeals court decision that allowed a pregnant teenager in the u.s. illegally to get an abortion. kavanaugh wrote that "was
8:07 pm
ultimately based on constitutional principle as novel as it is wrong. a new right for unlawful immigrant minors in u.s. government's attention to obtain immediate abortion on demand." >> shannon: despite his conservative credentials, there is concern among trump supporters that kavanaugh is too much of a d.c. insider, born, raised him up or having the so-called washington swamp. pro-life groups say they have expressed concerns they have about kavanaugh directly to the white house. judge amy coney barrett has been taking criticism from the democrats over her catholic faith. since her confirmation battle for the seventh circuit began. it was one testy exchange with senator dianne feinstein that raised barrett's popularity with religious conservatives and according to rush limbaugh's, exposed to the left real worry about her. >> when you read your speeches, barrett, the conclusion that one draws is that the catholic dogma lives loudly within you. and that is of concern when you come to big issues at large
8:08 pm
numbers of people have fought for. meaning, there is a bunch of us that don't like christians and we have been working really hard to take this country away from you, and you are going to stop us from getting away with taking the country away! that is what dianne feinstein means here. >> shannon: let's see what our panel thinks about that. jamil jaffer, former law clerk to justice gorsuch. and fox news contributor enter mccarthy, also a former u.s. assistant doing a mic attorney. to all of you. good to have you. we have some in d.c., some in new york. let's start here. thinking about the idea of what rush was talking about, writing this, "why do some progressives and single her out? amy coney barrett, particular scorn. it turns out she is a faithful christian who lives a christian life, similar to the lives of millions upon millions of her fellow american believers. now, really, that is the objection. do you think this will be about
8:09 pm
her credentials or will it be about her beliefs? >> i certainly hope it's about her credentials. what is really dismaying about this whole discussion, shannon, it's when you look at these candidates, one after another, they are simply excellent lawyers. you profiled brett kavanaugh and amy coney barrett this evening. as somebody said, you could almost throw a dart at this list and come up with a superb lawye lawyer. it's a shame that we are so immersed in the politics of this fact for sheer excellence in terms of legal craftsmanship of these lawyers is overlooked by what people want to project on, what they imagine their perl proclivities might be. it seems to me that kavanaugh, for all this talk about the obamacare decision, what he is criticized for should be something that conservatives celebrate, which is that he tried to settle this case on --
8:10 pm
as narrow a bases as he could in order to leave the ambit of democratic toys as wide as possible, which is what we should want from judges. i just think it is too bad that politics has so infected this. >> shannon: in talking about this, within a depth about the supreme court, analyst at cnn, legal analyst, talking about the fact that amy connie barrett has written about abortion, could be some statements and writings that are of concern, and she added this, as well. >> she's written in the area of religion that could end up being a flash point in any confirmation hearing. she is also finally former law clerk of antonin scalia. >> shannon: not a former clerk of justice scalia? >> that is to her credit. i agree with the statement that she is a superb lawyer. all the candidates are superb lawyers. i think is a straw man to make the argument that she's being attacked because of her religion. that is not what she's being attacked for.
8:11 pm
she's being attacked for suggestions that she's made that her faith in catholicism should become -- should come before her faith in the constitution. >> shannon: she's been very clear in the hearings when this came up that she would never -- >> there was an article she wrote that suggested otherwise. there is some ambiguity there. >> shannon: not from her. >> she disavowed it -- an article that she wrote that she cosigne. she also suggested elsewhere that roe may have been wrongly decided and should be overturned if it was wrongly decided. i think she is out there far more on abortion. i don't -- whether you want to call this politics or not, i think this discussion should be broader than her religion and abortion. the fact of the matter is, this is about abortion on both sides. the problem for trump is, be careful what you wish for. if you look at the polling data, it shows that many of his voters voted for him because of his pronouncements on the supreme court. the people he put on the supreme court. he is kind of letter to a
8:12 pm
pro-life camp, pro-life nominee now. hard for him to back track given what he has had to. the problem is two-thirds of the american people, both in a political poll, nbc poll, other polls, do not want this nominee to overturn roe vs. wade. what is good for trump space, 30% of voters that are his bays, is bad for the 66 other percent of american voters, and particularly independence, who really strongly feel by a margin of 2:1 that they do not want this nominee to overturn roe v. wade. you should argue this could be a broader discussion, i agree. that is what it's becoming on both sides. this could be very, very bad politics. >> shannon: democrats have made this clear because the senate's top democrat, minority leader chuck schumer said, the bottom line, judge barrett has given every indication that you will be an activist judge on the court, if chosen as a nominee, she will be the deciding vote to overturn roe v. wade induced drag on pre-existing conditions protections in the aca. what you make of that
8:13 pm
characterization of this judge, jamil? >> apparently democrats have a different standard for people of faith, and women. when you have a nominee as highly qualified as amy coney barrett, she's been a law professor for over 15 years, she wants to rhodes college, notre dame law school, written extensively, people .21 writing, and it doesn't say that people of faith -- to the contrary, it says judges should recuse themselves -- at the confirmation hearing, it was the exactly the same thing. judges should not let their religious views get in the way of being a fair, even had a judge. the idea that a person of faith can't be a good outcome a ridiculous place because no one is saying that. >> we should vote against them, apparently. >> what people are saying, for whatever reason, she is going to take what is regarded by most americans as an extremist view, that we should overturn roe v. wade, the man as a basis on which to vote against her. that is where the american public. two-thirds of the american public. >> shannon: there are plenty of polls that say that most americans believe there should
8:14 pm
be some limits on abortion. that is something of the courts have to figure out. there should be times and watch it should not be illegal. >> that is not trump's position. trump's position, if i get to work on more nominees, i will appeal roe v. wade. >> shannon: andy, what should he do without? we have this list of 25 from november that he was going to choose from. where do we go from here? does this turn into a purely political fight? there are democrats who voted for judge barrett, speed seven, judges on the list. there are democrats who voted for them in the past. >> shannon, they voted for them because of the politics of the situation. i think, number one, there are people, with all due respect, who think that people of faith can't be good judges. it's wrong but they do say that. >> who? >> come on. you had senator feinstein asking barrett in her confirmation hearings about how the dogma lives deeply in her.
8:15 pm
what difference does that make? >> is a cheap shot. >> a cheap shot at her by quoting her. sorry about that. >> it's a cheap shot to suggest that feinstein's position was, if you are a person of faith, you cannot be a good judge. feinstein's argument -- one at a time. feinstein's argument -- >> what was the relevance of the dogma living within her? >> because feinstein's argument, in the context of the death penalty discussion on the article that she signed and suggestions about roe v. wade being wrongly decided, is if your decision-making is being made first by your faith, not by your constitution -- >> shannon: when she was asked directly -- >> nobody has ever said -- >> shannon: when she was asked been given a chance to answer the question directly, she clarified it inside, it's an article i wrote 20 years ago. what i worded differently? to i think my faith should come before the law? no. >> that is a fair answer.
8:16 pm
>> shannon: do what do you make of her asking if she was an orthodox catholic? would you say that to someone of a jewish faith or a practicing islamic faith? >> i did not pluck this question. i would not have asked that question. i agree with you. i wouldn't frame it -- i wouldn't put the religious for a minute. i think that is the wrong frame. i agree with that. i think it is wrong to say if you have concerns about a nominee, not looking at the constitution, looking at something else, for the guidance, then i think that's fair play. i think it is all that happened. >> that's amazing. these things about john kennedy, where john kennedy looked to the pope if he were elected president? amy coney barrett said she wouldn't. why are we talking about this? it's ridiculous. it's the same religious bigotry that has infected our country. people saying that people of faith can't be fair. it's ridiculous, outrageous. an attack of don mcgahn people of faith. >> this is a strawman argument, with all due respect.
8:17 pm
>> it's completely intellectual dishonest. no one is talking about her religious faith. >> the dogma living deeply within her? >> what the issue here is, in the context, what you guys want to avoid, is this notion about, she has said on more than one occasion that she suspects whether roe was rightly decided and if it was not right they decided, it should be repealed. the question -- >> shannon: gentlemen, i want to give andy a final chance. wrap us up, andy. >> why can't it be true that roe is wrongly decided that it doesn't necessarily have to be overturned? particularly after casey, which opens up a lot of area to regulate abortion without directly confronting whether roe was correctly decided or not. >> fair point. except that's not what she said. she said if wrongly decided -- >> shannon: gentlemen, we got to leave it there. there will be an arm wrestling match right after this, during
8:18 pm
the commercial. until then, thank you, all three of you. great to have you. come back soon. our other top story, congress adds another date with fbi agent peter strzok over his anti-trump texts. center panel announces that it agrees that russia preferred trump over a clinton presidency. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge has details for us tonight. >> the senate intelligence committee released an unclassified report backing up the controversial 2017 intelligence is has meant that found russia wanted to damage candidate hillary clinton. harm her electability, and over time, the russian government developed a clear preference for donald trump. when the report was released in 2017, there was some daylight between the nsa, the fbi, then led by director james comey, and the cia, then led by director john brennan, of the key finding. senate investigators interviewed analysts, and concluded that differences were not politically motivated. the senator part also confirmed opposition research compiled by
8:19 pm
former british spy christopher steele and paid for by the dnc and clinton's campaign, did not play any role in the 2017 assessment because the information was considered unverified. in a separate development, a separate judge ordered lawyers and former national security advisor michael flynn to appear in a d.c. court on july 10th. after both sides asked for more time, putting off sentencing for a third time. flynn supporters emphasize new information has come to light, since a december guilty plea. pointing to a republican drafted congressional report that found former deputy fbi director andrew mccabe and fbi director james comey told congress their agents found no signs of deception during flynn's entry about his russia contacts. legal analysts are warning against jumping to conclusions about next week's status hearing. >> it's kind of tough to unring that well at this point. flynn has stood up in court and he has said he lied, he has other circumstances of the lie. if he ended it, it all goes away. as production goes away on everything else, as well as on
8:20 pm
this one count. >> the house judiciary committee issued a subpoena today for agent strzok who publicly testify also on the tenth. strzok is 1 of 2 agents to interview flynn. shannon? >> shannon: catherine, thank you very much. when we return, violent protests against government agencies. trace has more on the latest round of political instability. and the democratic national chairman tom perez drops a bombshell about the role of socialism in the future of his party. >> i have three kids, two of whom are daughters, one just graduated college, one is in college, and they were both texting me about their excitement over alexandria because she represents the future of our party. ♪ come here, babe.

8:25 pm
our party. alexandria's victory was just a remarkable reminder of the depth that we have the democratic party. >> the comments about ocasio-cortez being the future of the party has gotten a lot of attention considering she is a self-proclaimed democratic socialist. some even interpreted perez as saying the future of the party itself is socialism. meantime, new york democratic senator chuck schumer is getting an ear full from his liberal constituents. schumer was supposed to hold a town hall in brooklyn last night but airplane trouble left him grounded update. so instead of attending in person, schumer found in, which did not sit well with many who e synagogue. some of accuse the senator and of the democrats of using a butter knife in the gunfight of a president trump supreme court nominee. others said schumer was shameful for being critical of congresswoman maxine waters when she called her publicly harassing trump administration
8:26 pm
officials. waters had already accused schumer of doing anything to protect his leadership position in the senate. newly filed federal court documents show that during an immigration rally near the white house on saturday, a secret service agent patrolling the grounds was assaulted. documents it the suspect parked illegally near the white house e secret service officer confronted him, the man punched the officer in the jaw and left. it's unclear if the suspect was connected to the rally. but it's very clear that a protest outside an immigration and customs enforcement office in philadelphia turned violent. it happened when protesters refused to unblock the garage doors at the i.c.e. headquarters. police and protesters clashed. 29 people were arrested. the protesters were calling for i.c.e. to be abolished and for philadelphia to become a true sanctuary city.
8:27 pm
shannon? >> shannon: trace gallagher, thank you very much. she represents the future of our party. ashtrays reported, that is of the chairman of the democratic party sees young socialist who just knocked off number four democrat in the house during the primary race. fox news politics editor, editor of "the halftime report," chris stirewalt is here. what do you make of this? that was a powerful upset. we talked about it on primary night. now he says, yup, that's the future of the party. >> i want to give him more credit than that. i think he was trying to suck up to people across the board, although the constituents and his party. remember, it is not rank and file democrats that perez has to worry about. mostly he has to worry about all the democratic members of congress and governors at all of those people, that is his real constituency. i'm sure that what he is saying is, she is the future and so are you, and everybody's the future. together we'll have moonbeams and rainbows and sunshine and everything will be great. that's just some stuff people say. >> shannon: i like those things. >> everybody likes them.
8:28 pm
they are very popular. if you throw up sent to help you get 100%. >> shannon: okay, now we are done. >> i would also say, i don't want to be uncharitable to the democratic nominee. i would say that she is quickly becoming one of the most overrated politicians in america, and it's because of the hype. is not her fault. the hype around her is astonishing. i can't believe what i'm hearing. she's 28 years old. by the way, to take nothing away from the shoe leather that she used and she showed how hard she worked to beat crowley, new york is not a justly and orderly run state from a political point of view. it is machine politics and a big way. joe crowly should have been bounced out of that seed by someone a long time ago but he is the power of incumbency and the fact that you know how many people voted in the primary? like, none. 25,000 people voted in that primary. take nothing away from her.
8:29 pm
but she is going to be 1 of 435 members of congress. she's getting a lot of attention right now. but she'll never live up to it. >> shannon: okay, well, you've set out quite a platform. let's talk about someone else who is getting a lot of attention. this is democrat representative kiersten cinema, now running for the senate out of arizona. she said this when she was asked by "politico" about the current senate minority leader chuck schumer. "i'm not going to vote for him," she said matter-of-factly. a lot of these upstart say it is time for upstart change at the top? >> she is chuck schumer's best recruits. she is the best -- >> shannon: not voting for him. >> this is politics. this is arizona. democrats' best chance, jeff flake is retiring, republicans have a gross primary, they are at each other's throats, some of the people are quite
8:30 pm
interesting. on the democratic side, she's got a clear path. she's also a moderate democrat. now she knows she's in arizona, a state where she is going to need some trump voters to cross over. she will need either some trump voters or some moderate republicans to cross over and vote for her in order to get the job that in arizona, not going to be enough to count on base support alone. chuck schumer is in a difficult position. they can turn them into nancy pelosi. it happens quicker than you think we do go from "everything's okay," to "you are the most detested man of politics." these guys should ask the republican counter by counterpart, john boehner, smoking a cigarette and drinking ability mary sitting somewhere nice i'm sure -- >> shannon: somewhere sunny. >> definitely somewhere sunny, some wire with golf. paul ryan, soon to be headed back to wisconsin, that is over for him. the republicans consume their feedstock of leadership quicker than the democrats, but when it starts, it hurts. >> shannon: as i recall, she
8:31 pm
was a vote against nancy pelosi to retain her position in the house as well. we'll see. great to see you. love the seersucker. >> happy independence day parade is to be when you, as well. the president salutes american heroes and towards american allies, the president said it is long past time for our nato partners to pay their fair share. >> nato is the most excessive political military alliance in history but of core members including germany aren't willino spend what is necessary for their own self defense, what are we to make of that? >> shannon: general jack keane is standing by to discuss that. the president's upcoming nato visit, the u.k. visit, and the one-on-one with a putin. the general next. ♪ call one today. are you in good hands? and i heard that my cousin's so, wife's sister's husband

>> we are restoring american security by rebuilding our great military. when have we needed it more? will be at a point the likes of which we have never been as a

power, and again, hopefully never having to use that incredible equipment. >> shannon: president trump speaking at the greenbrier resort in west virginia tonight in a salute to our military ahead of independence day. the president's remarks coming just days before he is set to travel to brussels for a meeting with our nato allies. time to pay your fair share, that is the message he is sending to a number of world leaders. as of last year, just a fraction of nato countries have actually paid what they promise to spend on common defense. check it out. here to discuss that, fox news sr. strategic analyst, rit retired four-star jar naro, jack keane. always in honor to have you with us. "the new york times" got their r hands on the letter he wrote in german chancellor angela merkel. "continue german under spending on defense undermines insecurity of the alliance and promotes validation to other allies that do not plan to meet their spending commitments because others are u.s. the role model."
8:37 pm
he will take a tough message just like you did last year. it was awkward as we are watching what he didn't mince words. >> he sent that to six to eight other leaders. i think he is right on the mark. they have established this themselves, 28 of them, nato members, now there are 29, to meet this goal by 2024. the problem with germany, they are not even close onto the path of doing it. some are very close, some are there, the few that you mentioned. also, there's another thing that is operating, not just having the military capability. the defense spending would indicate this. but it also indicates the political and moral resolve of the people, their own security, and the collective security of nato is important to them. it sends a weak message to the russians, whose aggressiveness and maligned behavior are trampling all over nato's interest in europe to be sure, and also as far south as syria, as we are painfully aware of. that is also being told to putin and his thugs, that nato's
8:38 pm
resolve isn't what it used to be. to be when you mentioned russia. the president is working through several meetings in the next few weeks, and then he lands in helsinki to have this conversation with putin. a lot of people have said -- they've been critical. they don't think it's a good way for him to be spending his time. i know that you think that one of the key things they will have to talk about among many aces syria. >> first of all, are to say that our president shouldn't meet with putin because he has been so aggressive, trampling on our interests, is beside the point. the issues are so serious, they so affect the international community. thousands are dented syria. we have hundreds of thousands of people died. nine or ten million people displaced from their home. a major human catastrophe. we shouldn't bring two world leaders together that may be stamped out some kind of progress on this, what appears to be an intractable solution? you can't trust the russians for sure. tillerson, former secretary of
8:39 pm
state, made a deal with sergey lavrov to establish a de-escalation zone and southern syria. they did this month and months ago. right now, the russians are supporting the pro-assad regime's ground forces, surrounding proxies, with airpower, and pounding people in that de-escalation zone, where the agreement was, no firing. no shooting. nothing taking place. we will have to go with their eyes wide open and deal with the russians but certainly, sitting down and talking and trying to have some kind of a relationship, i think is critical. to be when you know, of course, that putin is a master manipulator. this president is aware of how that worked out for the last few presidents. he was a kgb guy, people said that he is as crafty and slick and manipulative as they come. how do you think our president makes any headway with him? speak a first of all, he knows all of that. he's been briefed, he understands it. he's a transactional guy, he relates to personal chemistry with somebody else, i think he's itching to get a room with putin, to be frank. what i look at is what happened
8:40 pm
with president g. here we have profound disagreements with china, and it manifested obviously on the world stage, last number of weeks, but as a result of their relationship they established at mar-a-lago, i believe the president believes that that is how he was able to make progress with president xi on north korea. they got three successful u.n. resolutions imposing sanctions, which i think in his mind, would not have happened without the chemistry that they were able to establish. he wants to do the same thing with putin in my mind. i don't believe he'll be manipulated by him at all. also i think there's an opportunity there to make some progress. i think we have to have a healthy dose of skepticism here in dealing with the russians because they are manipulators and they are liars day in and day out. >> shannon: they are so intertwined in the major issues around the globe that we are dealing with. we hope they there will be progress. general, have a great independence day. think for our service to our country and for being with us. >> great to be here.

dr. marc siegel joins us now. doctor, great to have you. i want to talk about two things, the mental health issue, physical. let's start with the physical and what they are facing. >> shannon, the way they survived of course was because they drink water with mineral and it off of this leg tight in the cave and i huddled together, you talk about psychologically, the shared warmth, and were very careful tt way. it's a miracle they made it 90s. the question is how they will survive. they've had water brought in, mineral gels, high calorie content brought in, so they will get nourished. they've had wasting but they will get nourished now and they will be hydrated as long as they don't contaminate that water, which is a key thing physically, they have to make sure to separate the waste from what they are drinking. huge issue. the big problem is, how are they going to get them out? they are very worried right now, the divers are, about the monsoon season. they could see a lot more rain. they may have to try a very

one kid panics, how do you keep the others? how in the world would he do that until october or to overcome their fears? we will teach you how to dive, we'll get you out? 's figure that is extremely difficult, shannon. you first have to overcome the risk of contagion and infection in that situation. there is a doctor and a nurse with them but psychologically, not knowing when is the key thing there. you don't have a date. you don't have something to look forward to. you don't know what the light at the end of the tunnel is. the days stretched on interminably and i think that that it's very difficult to overcome. it has to do with a mind-set, has to do again with sharing courage, fear of being contagious, anxiety being contagious, and they would have to get a lot of help from counselors there, people on the outside, and from their parents especially. i think, from what i am reading now, the most likely thing is they will try to get them out now. they got to beef them up and then they really have to have experts. you've got a seven navy seals, talking about the thailand may become a top expert divers,
