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 vip box, were you upset that the 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. surprised that the clip you
played of hillary clinton her 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. they deserve off to be hear. 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 after endorsing 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. and she did so. and, a year later, laughed about, the tactics in getting him to have the plea deal. she deserved to be heard. >> you expect that speaker ryan will keep his endorsement of donald trump or will he defect 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. we are happy the speaker of the 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 not want to support him. we will take the case to the voters. as the campaign manager. we welcome them back. they saw on display, somebody willing to take the case to hillary clinton. if the members can live with giving the next, three, four supreme court justices over to hillary clinton. they should, they should think about that. >> 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 thin shook had tk she had the 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. li like i said. despite it all. 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 placing and seating the women who have accused former president clinton of sexual uh abuse, putting them in the trump family box. at the last minute they were thwarted? >> i think like i said the whole situation is disappointing. donald trump's campaign had a string of disasters the his failed performance in the last debate. his vice presidential nominee, refused to defend him. at his debate. and then obviously, we had the the machado controversy, taxes, this video last friday. donald trump's trying to change the dynamic. but i would argue he is just dig the hole deeper with these, attacks. and trying to drag this debate down. we will continue to seek to talk about the issues. >> beyond that. he said itch he was elected he would apin tpoint a prosecutor try to put her in jail because she deleted e-mails after they were under subpoena.
>> again, it is disappointing. i would say it is chilling that 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 happy anniversary dinner, darlin' can this much love be cleaned by a little bit of dawn ultra? oh yeah one bottle has the grease cleaning power of two bottles of this bargain brand. a drop of dawn and grease is gone.

sir? >> my professor, constitutional law, brought to my attention the lawyers that were appearing before the people called before the committees, lawyers who reminded congress we have a first amendment, and we have a fifth amendment. >> reporter: you saw the law as a protector of individual liberty? >> yes, yes, i thought it could be a way to make a living. plus to do something that would make conditions in your society a little better. >> reporter: there was another student at cornell. >> yes. >> reporter: who decided to become a lawyer too? >> my dear husband. >> reporter: your dear husband. >> we have decided whatever we do, we do it together. marty started out as a chemistry major, but his true major was golf. >> reporter: yes. >> it was either business school or law school. >> reporter: at harvard?
