7:01 pm
what does that make me? >> sean: makes you someone who takes advantage of the opportunity when it's available. have a great show. >> jason: i'm jason chaffetz info laura ingraham and this is "the ingraham angle" from washington tonight. president trump just wrapped up a huge campaign rally in the battleground state of new hampshire. our power panel is standing by to break down the big moments. shocking new information tonight about the suspect shot six police officers in philadelphia in that standoff you saw here last night. new jeffrey epstein autopsy details raise serious questions about what happened in the sow. more than 100 seizures and dozens of teens hospitalized with severe lung injuries possibly tied a vaping. dr. drew pinsky is here with the prescription to end it. information about was going on in california with homelessness. the millennial who wants to unseat one of trump's biggest
7:02 pm
headaches in washington is here exclusively. but first we start with a fox news alert. president trump holding a massive campaign rally in new hampshire tonight. trump hit all his biggest accomplishments in office and promised to keep america great if reelected. >> president trump: we are actually here today to officially launch our campaign to win back the great state of new hampshire. in 2020. three years ago, we campaigned across country on a pledge to make america great again, and that's exactly what we've done. the united states right now has the hottest economy anywhere in the world. we are rebuilding that awesome might that we were just talking
7:03 pm
about, the united states armed forces. america is working again, america is winning again, and america is respected again. respected like never before. my administration is fighting to expand opportunity for citizens of every background and every race, religion, color, and creed. very important. because we are all americans. we all share the same home. we all share the same heart. we all share the same dreams. we are all children of this same almighty god. they forgotten men and women of america will never, ever be forgotten again. you were forgotten. i have also taken the toughest ever action to stand up to china's chronic trade abuses. earlier this month, the u.s.
7:04 pm
government officially labeled china for the first time ever a currency manipulator, another promise kept. globalism. i love our country. i'm the president of the united states of america. i'm not the president of the world. and as long as i'm president, america will never bow to a foreign nation like we were for so many years. >> jason: vintage trump. here now is my political power panel. kayleigh mcenany, national press secretary for trump's 2020 campaign. byron york, chief political correspondent for the "washington examiner" and fox news contributor and jimmy labbe, radio talk show host and democratic strategist who is joining us. thanks all three of you. i want to give you a chance, what's your take away from president trump? a lot of energy, big crowds, good message.
7:05 pm
how do democrats fight back? >> i don't know. that's a hard thing for democrats to do and to be blunt, that's what trump's face wants. he did exactly what is expected of him. he hit his talking points and that's what his base wants. when you press on policy points, that's where i think the democrats are going to have their opportunity. >> jason: kaylee, i believe you are at the rally. what was the energy in the room and how is this resonating on the ground from your perspectiv perspective? >> the energy was incredible. we had 12,000 inside and getting here was difficult. i had to navigate my way through 5,000 people outside. do the math. that is 17,000 people who showed up in a blue state. we are in new hampshire. people came all the way for massachusetts and all over the new england core door because blue state voters have been left behind by democrats.
7:06 pm
i would challenge the point that palance policy is going to help democrats. our numbers go up when democrats proliferate across iowa. be out there, 2020 field, you're helping us with your talking points that are radical socialism. >> jason: byron, there's a reason why donald trump went to new hampshire. it's got electoral votes. there's a reason he's here more than eight a year in advance of the general election. did he do what he was supposed to do tonight for his own good? >> obviously democrats have to concentrate on primary states because they have primaries coming up. he's looking at general election states. he started his campaign in florida. he was recently in pennsylvania. we've heard a lot about the states president trump barely won. pennsylvania, michigan, wisconsin. new hampshire is a state that he barely lost by 2,736 votes.
7:07 pm
it was really, really close. at the election is close again, turning new hampshire into his column could be a very big deal. >> jason: look at the numbers, it was exceptionally close and i think donald trump actually think they can -- thinks he can actually win there. jamila bey, you made the point about policy. democrats versus the g.o.p. donald trump. >> president trump: democrats are the party of high taxes, high crime, open borders, late-term abortion, and socialism. the republican party is the polarity of freedom. we are the party of the american worker, the american family, and the american dream and i'm fighting for you each and every day. >> jason: i watched that and i think donald trump is actually running on issues and things are
7:08 pm
going so well, as well as the economy. how are the democrats going to make a case against that? >> we have to figure out first of all which democrats were talking about. this thing is really hope and wide for anybody at this point. i like to joke with my friends. i am just dating right now. ask me who's ring i'm going to accept come next february or whatnot. to be blunt, the democrats are in a bit of disarray. we don't know which people we are going to actually see do get outcome primary season. we have issues all over the board. frankly i will hand it to this president. he is talking about his base. >> jason: it's broader than just his base. these things resonate with the american people. it's broader than just the far right side of the party. >> i'll tell you what. when we talk about making america great again and whatnot
7:09 pm
and we are talking about real americans and whatnot, this china thing is blowing up farmers right now. american farmers are hurting. when the government shutdown back in january, a lot of issues there. the delivery on promised loans and subsidies and whatnot has not come through for our farmers. we are going to see that when it's time to sit down at thanksgiving and those prices for the staples are going up. the fact that we are in this war with china right now of rhetoric, american workers are hurting and american families are feeling it. it's great at a rally right now and were not hearing any specific democrats coming out on those issues, but that's what i'm looking at. >> jason: there are a lot of people who see donald trump standing up to china and standing up on trade where other presidents left to fester. to her point, how long can this go on before a deal has to get struck before donald trump really takes a hit in the polls?
7:10 pm
>> farmers love our president and they support our president and they know they've never had a fighter like what they have in president trump. rest assured farmers support our president, as to the american people. in our polling, we see the hispanic and needed coming toward the president because of china tariffs. they understand jobs have been taken, wages have gone down because of china. america is behind the president. who they are not behind other radical democrats. aoc with a 20% approval rating. ilhan omar, 9%. socialism. these are democratic poll numbers. the president stands for america, he's patriotic. he has a roaring economy that's not stopping and democrats have embraced radicalism from bernie to biden. >> jason: byron, i want to ask you. donald trump talking about open borders. i don't know how the democrats survived with a policy that is an open border policy. how that would resonate with the american people. here's donald trump tonight. >> president trump: they
7:11 pm
accuse our heroic border agents of running concentration camps. and they do an incredible job. and the democrats don't want to fix the loopholes. we have serious, serious criminals that want to come in, and if we had open borders, they would be flowing in like you've never seen before. democrats want open borders. they don't mind crime. we do mind crime. >> jason: >> what he was referrn the recent democratic debates when many raise their hands to support decriminalizing crossing the border illegally. and offering government paid health care to people who have come to the country illegally. there are a number of democrats were pretty nervous about this. jeh johnson, who was president obama's last secretary of homeland security said that this amounts to virtually open borders. indeed it does.
7:12 pm
this is one of the big, big vulnerabilities that they have. otherwise the president just kind of hit his greatest hits tonight. you played the biggest applause line which is "i'm the president of the united states, not the president of the world." >> jason: i think he drives home a really big point and i think we're going to continue to hear that time and time again but i've never, ever seen a national party thrive nationally who goes after law enforcement, border patrol, i.c.e. agents, how is that a winning formula come november of 2020? >> when you say "go after." be to disparage them, talk about how they're running concentration camps. you don't see them patting them on the back, i tell you that. >> here's the thing. you're going to show pictures of people with wire around them and laying on cement floors -- >> jason: do you mean those pictures from the obama administration, those ones? >> no, the ones with crying children being denied access to showers and whatnot.
7:13 pm
how do you not buy that? >> jason: i don't think it's true. >> that's what's actually happening at this point in the bottom line is, it's not illegal to plead asylum. this country allows you to come here and say give me -- >> jason: it's illegal to come across the border and then try to do that. coming across the border -- >> how does one -- >> jason: you go to the port of entry. >> how do you get there? how do you get there? i am in complete agreement. >> jason: you can go to our embassies. >> for people who believe that this is the best country in the world and that there's opportunity here, bringing your family when you say okay, we are in danger of our lives, we are going to plead asylum. it's no different from ellis island. what is different, what is different is taking children away from their parents, and that's a problem. you want to talk about rattle, radicalizing people? you want to talk about an issue down the line?
7:14 pm
>> jason: you see this building right behind me, the capital. point to the congress because there's i.c.e. agents and border patrol agents, they are enforcing the current law. i agree there should be changes but you know what, what i see from the democrats hold on. i have to go to kayleigh. i see them disparaging the men and women with their lives on the line to protect our country, protect our livelihood, protect safety. there's a big contrast between what donald trump and the republicans are saying and the democrats are saying. kayleigh, i want to bring you in here because this is going to be a big issue. whether democrats wanted or not, donald trump believes he can drive this issue all the way to november 2020, right? >> no doubt. the policies we just heard began all under the obama administration. president trump ended family separation but anyway. i digress. it wasn't just aoc comparing the
7:15 pm
detention facilities to concentration camps. it was kamala harris comparing i.c.e. to the kkk. mary and william williamson saying it's like what nazis did in germany to jews. it's horrible. we see attacks on ice facilitie facilities. it's disgusting and hateful and the american people stand behind i.c.e. which is why we stopped hearing calls to abolish i.c.e. they were loud about it and it petered out. they are back and it's going to be to the chagrin of the democrats as their poll numbers plummet. >> jason: there will be a lot more discussion on the show end. byron, the corey lewandowski factory new hampshire. four electoral votes, the president is going to fight to get those but there's also a fight for the senate. there is the belief the republican side of the aisle of the current democrat senator is vulnerable, but is corey lewandowski the right solution? there's a lot of article saying there might be some controversy. >> corey lewandowski could be a target rich environment for some
7:16 pm
democrats, and the fact is there was a very, very close race in 2016. maggie hassan beat kelly by tooth that -- two tenths of one percentage point. there's a opportunity for republicans. corey lewandowski was president trump's first campaign manager. until he was fired. no one really leaves trump world. the president warmly endorsed him tonight. whether he would be a candidate who can actually get those abortive new hampshire's republican establishment >> jason: it's a political dynamic. i would push back on the idea of somebody leaving the trump worl world. i don't think mooch is coming back into the orbit. at the end of the day, it's going to be the real men and women across this country who actually make the difference here. this to me personifies in a
7:17 pm
picture the difference between what donald trump is doing and what the democrats are doing. this picture was taken and posted. this is aoc with some of hollywood's biggest elite. john legend, chrissy teigen, take a look at that picture. there are a lot of hollywood celebrities there and i'm telling you this does not sit well. she can talk all she wants in the democrats can claim that they are a party of the people but when they go out and do those big hollywood photos like that, i'm telling you their people across this country who just say oh, yeah, that's what they are really about. that's really where they're going i think you're going to see more of that in this election coming up. i want to think our power panel. there's going to be a lot more to discuss. up next, disturbing new details tonight about the suspected gunman in that standoff that injured six policemen in philadelphia. former u.s. attorney andy mccarthy is here on why this guy should have been behind bars. let's take a look at some numbers:
7:18 pm
7:19 pm

7:21 pm
>> jason: that is audio from the hours long philadelphia police standoff last night that left six officers injured. the heroism is unbelievable to me. these men and women, the greatest respect. amazing. what they do and how they do it. we have learned the suspect has a very long criminal -- violent criminal history. the big question, how was he not in prison? >> this was someone who needed to be off the streets. more than enough charges, so that mr. maurice hill may never exit jail. >> jason: chris o connell of our news affiliate wtxf is live with details. >> jason, investigators a few hours ago were able to get back into that home where the gunman really paralyzed this section of north philadelphia last night
7:22 pm
during the seven and a half hour standoff. six police officers were injured and miraculously they were discharged from the hospital before the suspect surrendered after midnight last night. miraculous. that suspect, 36-year-old maurice hill, he's been described as a career criminal. police went to his home in north philadelphia to serve a drug warrant but they were met by gunfire. more than 200 rounds of gun shots were fired in a barrage of bullets. at one point in that were trapped two police officers and three prisoner hostages. they were in there for several hours communicating with police negotiators, but they were able to be freed, rescued by swat and for the next two and a half hours, maurice hill hold up inside that philadelphia row home armed with an ak 15 assault style rifle and then when teargas was deployed, he came
7:23 pm
out with his hands up. in his waistband, another handgun. he was taken into custody without incident. tonight police are just trying to deconstruct everything, especially what went on inside that house. they had to clear it with all the teargas. it took about 18 hours before police could get inside. now the big question is how this guy with a career criminal record got his hands on so much weaponry. >> jason: it let me follow-up, chris. not only their weaponry but how in the world -- why was this guy even out of jail? he shouldn't have been breathing the air we breathe on the outside world. he should've been behind bars. even the philadelphia district attorney said so. how in the world was he not behind bars? >> well, that's a very good question, question that many people are asking tonight. i can tell you 36-year-old maurice hill has been described as a career criminal, first
7:24 pm
entering the criminal justice system in 2001. he was arrested more than a dozen times, convicted six other times as recently as this year. he was arrested. apparently the district attorney decided not to prosecute the cases the last time he was arrested. so that's the big question tonight, why maurice hill was out on the street in the first place. >> jason: one other very quick question, chris. miraculously, how s.w.a.t. got up on the second floor and extracted five people when you have an active gunmen right below firing shots through the floor. any other details you can give us about that? >> well, a couple other vignettes. first of all, the police won't get into strategy and to help us hostages were rescued, but they did say they were in constant communication with police officers. the police chief and the district attorney by phone throughout the negotiations.
7:25 pm
they were in constant contact. in fact, that information they were giving to police help them make the decision on how to actually go into this house, especially with the teargas. they told this guy they are coming in at 11:45 and shortly after midnight, he came out with his hands up. >> jason: we don't want the police to give away their tactics in the way they do things but my goodness. i could not be more proud and more happy. i can't even imagine the joy within those families. chris, thank you for the great report. we do appreciate it. he didn't take long for democrats to shamelessly play politics with the philadelphia shoot-out. watch this. >> no one should have access to the kind of weaponry and firepower that we saw in north philadelphia yesterday. >> i will do everything i can as governor but to get the general assembly to step up and pass legislation that will start getting out of the hands of criminals like this. >> a ban on military style assault weapons which are
7:26 pm
weapons of war that should not be on our streets. >> jason: news flash the suspected gunman can't legally owned guns under existing laws. he was breaking the law. one other law isn't necessarily going to change that. he has a long criminal rap sheet that includes arrest for things like attempted murder, kidnapping and his past convictions, he's a felon. he's a suspect but he was a convicted felon including drug dealing, aggravated assault, illegal possession of a gun. that's just a start this thing goes on for pages. it's so frustrating that our men and women in uniform have to go in and clear out somebody like that. because he should've been behind bars and he should've never, ever ever be breathing the light of day. joining me now is andrew mccarthy, former u.s. attorney, one of the smartest people you'll ever meet. fox news contributor and author of a brand-new book "ball of collusion," the plot to rig an election and destroyed presidency. you're not going to want to miss
7:27 pm
this. great writer, great mind and i can't wait to go through your book and andrew i think -- thank you for being here in the great work you've done as a prosecutor alog the way. i've said it like five times but how the world is a punk like this even on the streets? >> jason, i think the problem here is as you listen to this, we are bipolar on this. monday, wednesday, friday we are like how do the guy like this get on the street? and then tuesday, thursday, saturday we want to be in favor of criminal justice reform. we are convinced that we are the cultural state, too many people in prison. the pressure that that creates is what we're doing is precisely -- >> jason: wait, wait. i'm going to push back a little bit. i was the original author of the criminal justice reform. it's not about punks like this. it's not against hardened criminals, people -- it is about dealing with how we deal with people with addiction and that sort of thing. but there's a huge difference
7:28 pm
with a guy with a rap sheet like this. >> you're going to tell me that the federal prisons and the state prisons are teeming with nonviolent drug offenders and i'm going to tell you that presented in this country, as heather macdonald says, remains a lifetime achievement award for criminals. 99% of the people who are in prison belong in prison. and if you're going to make a priority into springing the people who are in prison to get them out, then you're going to have more guys like us out on the street. you've got to make up your mind what you want. >> jason: i kind of disagree with you. if you're there for a drug offense you should serve your time but we've got to reduce the rate of her -- recidivism. guys who have drug problems. if you have weapons charges, aggravated assault, robbery, attempted murder. those of the people we had burton jail and throw away the key. that's where we need more -- we have to keep going. >> the reason is out is because the pressures on prosecutors to plead that stuff down to much
7:29 pm
less serious offenses so we don't fill up the jails. >> jason: exactly they should be prosecuting more gun related -- if you have a gun violation, they should be prosecuted and they should serve that time. people should be scared to death. you're right. they know they can plead this out and they are going to be out of jail because no prosecutor thinks this is going to be a big resume item. >> well, if your priority is to get people out when they belong in, you're going to create incentive system to plead things down and the result inevitably is going to be people like this guy are out on the street. >> jason: no, i think the incentive is to get guys like this were violent histories in jail. that should be the incentive. let me move on. we will continue to doc about this. i want to talk about the epstein situation because he's on suicide watch and then suddenly the defendant's attorney says we want to take him off that appears as if they did that. does that ever happened in your
7:30 pm
situation? you've dealt with this directly in this prison. >> yeah, no, jason, it never happens. the infuriating thing with this guy is that kind of thing happened with him from the beginning to the end. everything that happened with this guy going back to 2007, 2008, was that he was given the upper grade of a two-tier system of justice and he got caught every brick imaginable and then some that had to get made up as they went along. right up until the end when he should've been on suicide watch, on a much higher level of scrutiny and his lawyers when in and demanded. think about it. you are the warden of this prison, a lawyer comes in and says we really think he doesn't need suicide watch anymore when you are two and half weeks after an incident where it looks like he might've tried to off himself. you are going to let the lawyer talk you into not doing your job and making sure these prisoners
7:31 pm
are kept -- what if you are a federal judge in the next case where the government really needs to keep somebody in custody prior to trial because he might actually flee or intimidate witnesses? do you want to be the judge to incarcerate somebody prior to trial if the government can't tell you they can protect the people they have in the system? speech you know, it's too convenient and too fishy. i've only got about 20 seconds. tell us about your book, what do you put in the book? >> the real collusion is that the obama administration put the counterintelligence and law enforcement apparatus of our government in the service of the clinton campaign and used our laws that are supposed to protect us from foreign powers to scrutinize and to monitor the opposition parties campaign. >> jason: is absolutely stunning and i'm sure you got a great number of details.
7:32 pm
andrew, think is much for being here. andrew mccarthy. breaking breaking news details e investigation into the mysterious death of millionaire jeffrey epstein. a live report on what we just learned. dr. marc siegel on what new reports --
7:33 pm
7:34 pm
>> these bones are typically indicative, typically indicative of strangulation by another person. that doesn't mean that's what happened. we don't want to feed conspiracy theories. we just think of
7:35 pm
"the washington post" you need to have all the information that we can for you. >> jason: that was "washington post" reporter carol winick on her bombshell in the report revealing shocking details about jeffrey epstein's autopsy. dr. marc siegel is standing by and why these changes the entire narrative on the epstein staff but first we begin with fox news chief breaking news correspondent trace gallagher live in our west coast newsroom with the new details. trace. >> jason, the autopsy showed multiple broken bones and jeffrey epstein's neck, including a bone in the adam's apple and most men. for clarity, these types of breaks can absolutely happen. those who hang themselves. as your guest noted, forensic experts point out they are much more common in victims of strangulation. that's not to say epstein was strangled but it does tend to boost the level of intrigue, especially about context and circumstances. our corporate cousin, "the new york post," says epstein hung himself with a bedsheet tied to the top bunk in his cell.
7:36 pm
but the correctional center has not released any details on exactly how he did it, meaning did he jump, roll, or fall off the bunk? standard prison bunks are five and half feet high and forensic pathologist dr. wac is skeptical about epstein generated enough l bones. watch. >> the nature of the hanging, no jumping, no falling through a floor like an execution and no jumping from the top of the step ladder. there is no velocity. where does the force come from? >> on july 23rd, epstein was found with bruises on his neck and claim he was beaten up a child by his cellmate. autopsy was completed sunday but the cause of death is still pending. it's important to point out the guards ignored epstein for ours so we could have been hanging for a while. but in 2008, a maryland teenager accused of killing a police officer died of an apparent suicide in jail but two days
7:37 pm
later, the cause of death was changed to homicide because the medical examiner found the teen had a particular broken bone. no one was charged with the teen's death and it remains a mystery. >> jason: joining me, dr. marc siegel, professor of medicine at nyu and a fox news contributor. doctor, i've heard you many times on fox and i appreciate your reporting. going back to what the other doctor talked about, the idea of velocity. this is a medical -- a detention center that's been place for decades. it's not like they haven't dealt with it before. they have dealt with it. to the other doctors comment about velocity, this looks so suspicious. what's your medical take on it? >> i want to start with what the medical examiner, chief medical examiner of new york, has had. all information must be synthesized in order to determine the cause and manner
7:38 pm
of death. the fact that she is even saying that means that all the information is not in and we are getting very sketchy information and certainly look like a suicide to begin with, "the new york post" reporting the bunk bed which is ridiculous, in the room that he was alone of the guards were sleep bent that they falsified records, that he'd been on suicide watch previously. that he was clearly depressed. all these things pointed in that direction. pointing towards incompetence. now you have to wonder, because of the report out today that talks about multiple fractures in the neck. you just showed dr. wecht. i spoke to a top, surgeon who said multiple factions in the neck are more consistent -- not definitive but more consistent with homicidal's regulation that with hanging. and the you hyoid bone, i don't want to be too technical, as you get older, the chances of
7:39 pm
breaking that hyoid bone right around the adam's apple, as trees pointed out, goes up with hanging but it is still far more common with just regular, homicidal's regulation. we don't know yet. we don't have enough information. we don't know if the doors open. we don't know what happened to the arteries in the neck. we don't know where they fractures in the neckwear. we need more information. were there bruises on the body? these things have to come out and they have to come out in the final report. homicide in my opinion has been added to the possibilities here, and that is deeply disturbing. >> jason: my understanding, doctor, is that the autopsy was done days ago. aren't they going to know at the end of that -- maybe i was watching "quincy" too often but you pretty much know at the end of the autopsy, they are legitimately waiting for a lab report that takes a week? seems highly suspicious to me on such a high-profile case. they know, don't they, what happened at this point? >> let me push back a little bit.
7:40 pm
it's highly suspicious, yes, that they haven't released the findings at all so they brought in dr. michael baden, a superstar these things but if he's on a case, overlooking it, you better believe that there's a question mark here. what caused it. somebody suffocated but you don't know how and with all these factors, i am more suspicious than before and again, i can't rule out suicide here. that is still on the table. but now we need more information because homicide is a possibility. dr. michael baden is famous for being brought on cases like this and overruling what the presumption is. >> jason: doctor, thank you so much. there's a whole medical side. i totally get that but there's also the suspicion of what was going on in that prison facility. thank you for your expertise. very dozens of teens hospitalizd with severe lung injuries possibly tied to vaping. dr. drew pinsky, one of our favorites is here, with new warnings to parents. up next.
7:41 pm
7:42 pm
7:43 pm
>> i'm 22 years old. they are cool. you rip them. there's nothing cooler than blowing fat cloud like that. it helps my swag. i love walking around. it's good for getting checks. honestly i started about a year ago. >> what's your favorite -- >> i haven't looked back since.
7:44 pm
>> jason: wow, that was barstool sports personality tommy smokes telling laura why he loves to vaped with e-cigarettes. millions of people are vaping for precisely the same reason. it looks cool supposedly. but is looking cool really worth a trip to the hospital? several midwest states are investigating dozens of cases of teenagers being hospitalized with severe lung issues after reportedly using e-cigarettes. on top of that, the fda is already looking into 127 reports of seizures possibly tied to vaping. joining me now is dr. drew pinsky, radio host and medicine addiction specialist. dr. drew, think for being here. my understanding of vaping, if you have a cigarette addiction and you're trying to wean your way off of it, maybe this is a good way to do that. but we have millions of young people who are thinking hey, this is safe. nothing's going to happen to me. i'm just vaping. it's not cigarettes. >> read, so it is a little complicated. the guy that was talking about
7:45 pm
his swag, that was just beyond imagination. you could imagine in the 1930s somebody saying that about cigarettes, right? a similar phenomenon going on here. the fact is medical literature shows repeatedly that vaping is one of the best ways to get off cigarettes. tobacco is the problem, not nicotine. for some reason, we are in a moral panic about nicotine. now whether or not the vaping products themselves have something in them that could cause lung damage, for instance, that's a concern. in this particular case you guys are reporting on, these were all cannabis or cbd products. these were not nicotine products. at least everyone i have read about. and so it may not be the vaping in this case. it may be something about the cannabis products or the way they are being prepared. now, even though the vaping is a great way to get off cigarettes and tobacco, it doesn't mean it's good for adolescents to its expose your brain to nicotine.
7:46 pm
when you are exposed to an early can you become permanently addicted to it. >> jason: we are going to scroll on the screen some of the ads. some of these are targeted to very young people. gummy bears and those types of things. >> yes. >> jason: they have been targeting the youth market as a way to grow this segment of the business. >> looked, when it comes to my eye when i look vaping, when i look at the cannabis products, they are all taking a page from being tobacco. they are using all the same mechanisms, the same ideas, addicting people early and young. it's all the same stuff. so that's where our focus should be. it shouldn't be a moral panic about vaping generally more about nicotine products. it should be about the marketing to young people and the fact that these companies, both thc, cbd, relate the thc end the vaping companies are going at us in the same way that the tobacco companies did. >> jason: i want to go to
7:47 pm
something you're passionate about that is the homelessness problem in california. i want to show you governor newsom and what he said recently. >> the folks that were on the street, the vast majority were not from california. they come from texas. the vast majority. >> jason: are you kidding me? he is dismissing this as if it's not a california problem. these people are coming from texas. that's what's causing the problem. >> one of the things that has me so passionate is the way our representatives are talking about the issue. they keep focusing on the economic disparity and the housing issue which is not what this is. this is a mental health crisis. this is not something you see in third world countries because third world countries take care of their sick people. we have a symptom, something that happens when you get a stroke in the right side of your
7:48 pm
brain, the left side goes out. you are unaware of it. it turns out that addiction, psychotic, psychiatric illnesses because the very same part of the brain to shut off and we have privilege that in the lawn now so we can get near people to help them when they need it. it sends them to the streets. they languish and people are dying. my question to newsom and the rest, what is the body count? how many have to die before they are going to do something about this and change their rhetoric and focus on the mental health crisis this is. >> jason: i only have 30 seconds but in hawaii they are doing something differently. what do you suggest california do? >> expand conservatorships. modify prop 47 which is made drug use and essentially trafficking legal. and force the vagrancy laws so people are motivated into treatment. most are partly get a mental health team in with the police. it's working in the city of pomona. we can do this if we focus on the fact that this is a mental
7:49 pm
health crisis as a result of shutting down the state mental health system. >> jason: i love your passion behind this. dr. drew, i hope you keep it up and continue to spread the word. i think you are part of the solution, not part of the problem. coming up, meet the man wants to replace one of the most powerful democrat in washington. it's in "the ingraham angle" exclusive up next.
7:50 pm
7:51 pm
7:52 pm
>> last year i moved to iowa to help build a grassroots presidential campaign. as the campaign took off, the question came up over and over again. how are we going to get the agenda through congress? this is my answer. join the movement and lets fix the system together. >> jason: that was jonathan herzog, a former top staffer on democratic presidential candidate andrew yang's presidential campaign, and now he's formally announced since he left the campaign a bit of his own to unseat house judiciary committee chairman jerry nadler in new york's tenth congressional district. joining me now for a "the ingraham angle" exclusive is jonathan herzog. i appreciate, respect anybody was willing to throw their hat the ring of things they can do something better. especially against the long-term in common. i took on somebody in my party
7:53 pm
had been there for 14 years and i beat him. it can be done. even a small amount of money. your platform, i've got to tell you when i look at it, freedom dividend, medicare for all. democracy dollars that you call, is that really what it takes in order to win in new york's tenth district? >> thank you for having me. the reason i'm running on this platform as we are going through a fundamental economic shift. the greatest of our history where we are automating away the most common jobs in our economy. working in retail is still the most common job. until we need to enact meaningful solutions to help hundreds of thousands of folks here in new york and especially in the tenth district transition through this fundamental economic shift. >> jason: how do you beat jerry nadler? he's been there for a long time. he is a powerful judiciary committee chairman. how do you beat and then comment like that in new york city? >> starts with proposing both solutions that address the
7:54 pm
central challenges of our time. again if you have a trillion dollar tech company like amazono and federal taxes, then certainly we need to look up and say we need to pass freedom dividend of a thousand dollars a month to put it into the hands, put economic resources directly into the hands of new yorkers. so putting forth bold solutions that address the challenges of our time is what will bring us across the finish line. >> jason: jonathan, are you following in aoc's footsteps and saying amazon, don't come to new york. we don't want you here? >> we have to embrace technology and progress in all the great innovations that are coming our way. >> jason: come on, jonathan. do you want amazon to come to new york, yes or no? >> look, we are pro-jobs. >> jason: it was a yes-no question. >> yes, it's good to have job growth. >> jason: so aoc was wrong? aoc was wrong? >> [laughs] we have to focus on the fact
7:55 pm
that if you go to the amazon ghost or -- >> jason: no, no, no. jonathan. i do this for a living. you're going to get a lot of it if you're running, was aoc wrong or right? >> look. our focus is on making sure that the tens of millions of folks who work right now in retail have a meaningful path forward and a transition. right here in the tenth district, we lost 10,000 retail jobs over the last number of years. so we have to focus on the problems on the ground facing new yorkers. we have a mind-set of economic and social insecurity. and we have to put resources into our hands to help us move forward. >> jason: well, listen, i appreciate it. you were harvard law, you're very accomplished. i love you have passion for being involved in helping out on the presidential campaign. we need good people on both sides of the aisle. the only thing i will challenge you with and i won't give you enough time to answer unfortunately, while you did
7:56 pm
well in harvard law maybe not so good in math because giving 250 million people, adults, a thousand dollars a month adds up to trillions of dollars. i think $3 trillion. i don't know how you get from here to there. i will give you 20 seconds. >> the headline cost is much lower but we have to ask the question and look up, how is it that these trillion dollar companies are paying zero in taxes, less than you and i? this is the key challenge. >> jason: there's a reason for that. we will do the tax thing. i've got to wrap up. good luck. you are running against jerry nadler so we are rooting for you. good luck. statehood. president trump with our last bite coming up next. with type s are excited about the potential of once-weekly ozempic®. in a study with ozempic®, a majority of adults lowered their blood sugar and reached an a1c of less than 7 and maintained it. oh! under 7?
