campaign managers for donald trump and hillary clinton surprise, surprise, very different takes on sunday's presidential debate. they discussed them on cbs this morning. >> "the washington post" is reporting that the trump campaign wanted to seat the women who have accused bill clinton of indiscretion in the bo commission on presidential debates thwarted that? >> i was surprised that they thwarted that only because it did not say family box it said v if p box. in the clinton box they had invited senator claire mccaskill of missouri she is not a family member. they threatened to have security remove the women. thought that was unfortunate. mark cuban got to sit where he wanted to sit. the broader issue.
first response last night. norah the when she says this man never apologizes to anybody for anything. then he went on to apologize again. and said he was embarrassed for the remarks he made. and that there is a difference between word and actions. that succeeded his earlier post on, friday night in light of these, in light of the videotape revelation that he said foolish things and was sorry for them. >> what was the point of having the women there in that facebook live chat? there wasn't a press conference, reporters weren't allowed to asking them questions. what was the point of bringing them forward? do you think that plays well with women voters? >> it wasn't a facebook live that. these women want to be heard. and i'm sure they would be available to come on your show anytime.
we agree with hillary clinton. she famously said a year ago that she believes all sexual assault victims deserve off to be heard and believed. and i'm sorry that there are exclusions to her list. based on, based on the way she has treated them. the whole point of those four women last night, is how hillary clinton treated them. she is the one running for president. and "the new york times" last week, shortly afen her for president, went through the whole litany of hillary clinton's modus operandi, she would name and shame the women. comply with them being the target of private investigators. just really try to ruin their lives. they want to be heard. in the case of kathy shelton. she was a 12-year-old rape victim. notten dispute. hillary clinton represented successfully her accuser. >> selected by a judge. selected by a judge. >> to defend the man.
as well? >> i don't know, charlie. i hope speaker ryan keeps his word and endorsement of donald trump. speaker ryan of course, took to the stage in wisconsin at his event and faced some boos from the crowd. those who are expecting to see donald trump. house has endorsed, the nominee, donald trump. and -- >> what are defections doing to the campaign. people who endorsed donald trump. hopeful he would be a different candidate. they're disendorsing him. what does that do to the campaign? >> tells us that many of them do llary clinton.the case to y if the members can live with giving the next, three, four supreme court justices over to hillary clinton. they should, they should think
>> we were all disappointed by donald trump's stunt event. prior to the debate. he went into the debate intent on throwing hillary clinton off her game. and trying to sling a lot of mud. hillary showed up at the debate wanting to talk to the american people about specific plans she has to make a difference in people's lives. i think she had the opportunity to do that. had to do quite a bit of fact checking on donald trump throughout. we feel like we got that done. >> they're calling it the ugliest, nastiest debate ever, did it feel that way to you watching it? >> like i said, i was disappointed first of all that donald trump wanted to make this about mudslinging. i was disappointed about the stunt that he tried to pull just about an hour beforehand. and unfortunately, he continued a string of inaccuracies and lies. the fact checkers have said that. so, yeah, i was disappointed in that. like i said.
secretary clinton was able to make a clear case. articulated clear plans on health care, foreign policy and many topics. >> robbie, "the washington post" is reporting that donald trump's campaign sought to intimidate hillary clinton and embarrass former president bill clinton by who have accused former president clinton of sexual uh abuse, putting them in the trump d trying to drag this debate g down. we will continue to seek to talk about the issues. >> beyond that. he said if he was elected he would appoint a prosecutor to try to put her in jail because she deleted e-mails after they were under subpoena. >> again, it is disappointing.
donald trump thinks the presidency is like some banana republic dictatorship where you can lock up your political opponents. the career staff at justice department have ruled on this issue. again, this is just donald trump trying to intimidate hillary, bully hillary. and change the debate from anything but himself. i think he should apologize. >> thanks, robbie. >> robbie mook. >> thanks. i'm here in bristol, virginia. and now...i'm in bristol, tennessee. on this side of the road is virginia... and on this side it's tennessee. no matter which state in the country you live in, you could save hundreds on car insurance by switching to geico. look, i'm in virginia... i'm in tennessee... virginia... tennessee... and now i'm in virginessee. see how much you could save on car insurance. or am i in tennaginia? hmmm...

>> something of a policy gap between the two opened up last night on syria. with trump brusquely rejecting pence's call for military action against the russian backed assad regime. >> he and i haven't spoken. i disagree. the unusual rebuke led to several conversations between the two and pence's insistence there is no disagreement now. that the debate moderator misstated his possession to trump. even though it was verbatim. pence is mindful, fellow republicans are abandoning trump at an alarming rate. said any suggestion he might follow suit is false. and yet, the indiana governor is in an awkward position of showing loyalty to a candidate many republicans wish could be replaced by pence. when he tried to explain how he could be against trump's word but not against trump, the indiana governor cited his
