went into the display. they are placed 23 yards apart, that is how far joe montana and jo clark were during the play. it is -- joe clark were during the play. it is attention to detail that makes it special. >> i was sad. i miss him. it was beautiful. yeah, it was beautiful to see. >> the special day acknowledged the special man. a day that would not be complete without clark's football buddies making jokes. >> he told mow something, he was like okay, white guys can trump, you know. he was able to make that catch.

can be certain about an event that happened 6,000 miles away with no evidence. >> formally expel the saudi ambassador from the united states until there is a completion of a third party investigation into this kidnap, murder and god knows what followed that occurred in istanbul. >> reporter: trump has not seen any evidence that the prince is not involved but he is telling "the washington post," obviously there has been deception and there has been lies. in washington, back to you. dramatic pictures out of south carolina of a floor collapsing at a party nor the campus of clemson university.
