starts now. >> violence and chaos in virginia as clashes between white supremacists and counter protesters turn deadly. >> we begin tonight in charlottesville virginia were today's clashes between white nationalists and counter protesters have prompted the virginia governor to declare a state of emergency. good evening everybody. at least three people are dead following a white nationalist rally in charlottesville. chaos broke out with people hurling objects and spraying chemicals. a car then plowed into a crowd. alex james field has been arrested and charged with second-degree murder and-- in connection with the incident. a responding helicopter crashed during the chaos killing 2 virginia state troopers. the state helicopter was assisting law enforcement
officers monitoring the rally. lieutenant. and pilot were killed in the crash and it happened several hours after the car plowed into a crowd. the virginia governor had a harsh message for white supremacist today. >> i have a message to all of the white supremacists and the nazis who came into charlottesville today. our messages plain and simple. go home. you are not wanted in this great commonwealth. shame on you. you pretend that your patriots but you are anything but a patriot. this is the latest confrontation since it voted earlier to remove a statue of general. robert e lee from a local park. joining us to discuss president. trump's response is joe, thank you for being here tonight. first i want to get your reaction on president. trump's response saying he condemned hatred, bigotry and
violence in many forms. >> unfortunately he sat on all sides as well. if he had stopped a sentence early it would have been a great statement but making it sound like there is blame to go around ignore the reality of the situation. since you are asking about the president, and we can discuss this if you like, he has a hand in this. in the creation of this. with the block of voters that he attracted to his calls and with the things he never talked about during the campaign which amounted tacit approval of their behavior like the behavior you saw today. he surrounded himself with the -- with advisers who came from the same place. it is supposed to be alternative right, a different way of thinking about right of center politics but that's code today for white supremacy, white nationalism. so this becomes about race
politics and not a different way of thinking about conservatism. he has those people advising them now and didn't say anything in the way of disapproval over these sorts of things. he says much to blame as anybody else frankly. >> he didn't say anything about disapproval but did you feel that his rhetoric emboldened what supremacists?>> i do. you saw pictures of people waving the confederate flag which is a big source of concern for people who live there. charlottesville by the way is a democratic city, it's a college town so it's naturally going to be a place where if they are removing some reminders of the confederacy and slavery from parks or schools or taking the flag down, it's going to be a natural place for people in the white supremacy movement for people to go and what to protest.
there's nothing wrong with protesting as long as it is done peacefully but to this point about the confederate flag and other videos you watched, you saw people waving swastikas and wearing [ null ] helmets. when president. trump announced he was running for office back in 2015 in the weeks after that when he started rallying, people started showing up waving the confederate flag with his name on it and he said-- >> it was frightening and he never said anything about that. when he had been asked about the confederate flag he said would you think the plums? he said in a museum. you can look that up. this was not his position but he was going to draw those voters who assumed that they had his support. today you saw him not only say nothing about that but he said nothing about the swastika and he has a son-in-law who is
ortho locks jewish and grandchildren who will be raised jewish and said nothing. what do you think that tells you? >> the silences speaking volumes. even after we've talked about republicans who are calling on president. trump to say you need to call it what it is, white supremacy, they are tweeting the president and saying this is domestic terrorism, call it out that we have not seen a response from president. trump . >> the most you've gotten was a plea to be civil-- civil and try and love each other. well those are nice sentiments but behavior follows-- their behavior is going to follow the behavior that he mocks. he has not done what he has promised which is to be everyone's president. this was a disgraceful thing and he would do himself a world of good if he dismissed some of those people who are like-minded
and actually tried to represent everybody. he made it very clear to the people in the white supremacist movement that he does not support them. anything less is unacceptable. >> they will be waiting for his next response in the morning. we are going to get occupy oakland hosting a rally in protest of what happened today and charlottesville. we are learning that they are on interstate 580 which is where we find rob markham. talk to us about what is going on out there right now. >> right now, this group of protesters from occupy oakland started their march just down the street from where we are and many are taking offense to president trump's comments and addressing the violence. take a listen.
>> as charlottesville recovers from a day of bloodshed there was sharp contrast saturday night in oakland. an impromptu emergency solidarity rally was held at the group of bay area united against white supremacy laying the blame for what happened on president. trump . >> what we are shouting is a reflection-- reflection of the trump administration. endorsing white supremacy and white terrorism. >> this combatant did not say go far enough in denouncing the violence and condemning the white nationalist. >> we condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, a tree and violence on many sides. >> the political science professor waiting. >> i think the president's statement was generic and
nonspecific intentionally because he did not want to alienate the sort of hard right element of his base. any president could have given those comments in any generic incident. author of the book divided area-- divided era says the president got it right. >> like a parent of many children who finally says enough by all of you, that's a good step for this president. >> the plane healthcare reforms if in place would appeal the division the white nationalists have claimed victory. david duke says i would recommend you take a good look at the mirror and remember it was white americans who put you in the presidency, not radical leftists. >> when david duke says white america put him and it is true statistically. >> i don't think we should dignify anything they are saying is rational so i don't
even know where they come from when they say take it back. ticket back from who? >> while some claim that an element of racism exists, rubio says nothing patriotic about the knots-- nazis, [ null ] or what supremacists. >> responded to the violence the california saturday released this statement. >> acts of hate and bigotry have no place in america. the attack we are witnessing are completely unacceptable and must not be allowed to continue. >> the violence was a glaring reality of how divided the nation has become with calls for leadership. >> he has to be the president of all americans even the ones he doesn't like. there was about 500 representatives from that group . we understand that they are right now marching trying to take control of the situation
and another march is planned for 3:30 sunday afternoon. i know you are in downtown oakland and have discussed chp, any word on if they have closed lanes and what the situation is like and unfolding to right now? >> they were trying to move them off the freeway. some of the group were launching fireworks and moved on so it is still an active situation from what we understand. >> things tonight have been pretty peaceful would you say? >> as we started here, it was a kid-- a series of people chanting and holding up signs, just kind of shouting their rally cry. there were no counter protesters so i guess that was one good aspect of how this took place and started off. >> good to hear considering what we've seen in the past. >> live in oakland, thank you.

eclipses more than a week away and if you can pat-- travel to the path of totality there are some great places to watch the partial eclipse that will be visible here. the space and science center is a great place to start and tonight we are showing what the experience will entail. >> the space and science center sits high above oakland. it is history rooted in a level of astronomy by those who have also chased of the eclipse. >> the first director of the observatory in 1885 was charles burkhalter and he had been working in an insurance company but was an instructor-- and astronomy enthusiast and was the first person in oakland to own a telescope. he had a little observatory in his backyard. >> he apparently didn't spend much time in a. if you think getting to the path of totality
is tough these days try doing it with a horse and wagon. >> he was an eclipse chaser so he planned and mounted expeditions around the world in the late 1800s when it was a bigger deal than today. they would go by ship and spend a couple of months going out to places like india or japan. unfortunately it was cloudy that time. >> he had a special telescope and camera and equipment that he developed. he developed the technique for photographing the eclipse but the best solar eclipse in the world. >> photos that have since become a bit of legend. >> where we headed? >> we are headed to the dome for the 1883 vintage telescope that started the observatory. >> this is where the staffing-- stuff astronomers will be during the eclipse. >> where do you want to be? >> i'd like to be up in idaho. >> but i will be here.
the view will only be a partial view but he says it will still be a sight to see. >> we will free about-- see about three quarters of the sun's surface covered up. >> it's enough of the sun covered up that you will notice a change in lighting conditions. a little more dim and crisp. >> this animation of the partial eclipse gives us an idea of what to expect. >> that is an animation taken from space. the image of the sun that you see is an ultraviolet image so the light you are seeing is ultraviolet, not visible light. you are seeing the moon crossover that and if this were animation in a total solar eclipse, you would notice that there is an extended atmosphere shining ultraviolet light. the partial eclipse will take place over two hours or more.
the peak of the eclipse when most of the sun is covered up is about 10:15 but it will be a gradual thing so people will have plenty of opportunity to look for telescopes. observers can watch the eclipse through a telescope that is over 100 years old. >> people will be over here. >> you can also head outside to the deck where there will be a number of ways to watch the eclipse safely. >> if you look down on paper you will see a little image. it's pretty bland because there are really no sunspots. >> this kind of an event where it is an outdoor event, we can expand onto the hillside and the parking lot and share filters and projectors and things like that. >> a tree or bush that casts a shadow, spots of light coming through the leaves, ordinarily it is a dazzling array of
