8:05 am
one of trump's advisers, mayor rudy giuliani, great to see you. >> thank you. he sell system in the l is part of the media, but used it in terms of the conspiracy, there's something broader going on. senator jeff sessions, a sitting united states senator, also saying this week that the process is rigged. i want to be specific. >> i think there's a misunderstanding about that. he and paul ryan missed each other in the night. paul ryan thinks he needs election at the polls places are rigged. he's not saying that. there may be a few incidents of that philadelphia is often a place where you have cheating, chicago. that's not really the problem. he's talking about 80% to 85% of the media is against him. you look at "new york times." i read it every day. i don't know why it aggravates me. first three stories, donald trump was blade in school. donald trump had a business
8:06 am
the wikileaks thing has taken by far a sub-story to eight or nine women, none of who have substantiation, and two of whom have completely been rebutted. the times didn't even print that. i think he feels the establishment is against him, not cheating at the polling place, but you've got the times, "the washington post", most of the major newspapers, most of the networks. >> right, but his supporters aren't necessarily making that distinction, globe" piece talking about supporters at a rally in ohio. this comes from a supporter -- if she's in office, i hope kell with start a coup. she should be in prison or shot. that's how i feel about it. we're going to have a revolution and take them out of office if that's what it takes. there would be a lot of bloodshed. when he talks about the system being, the supporters aren't
8:07 am
describing. >> he even points at them, they're the reporters, they're the ones who have rigged it. it's clear what he means. he's never talked about cheating at the polling place. a letter like that, i can give you 20 letters at the trump headquarters -- >> that's from a supporter. >> from hillary clinton's people, or from his people that say crazy things. look, you have millions of people, each side has a couple of kooks. >> will you respect the outcome of this election? there's really evidence of cheating. i don't expect the electoral process to be rigged, meaning the election to be rigged, but if it is, we'll contest it. that has happened. what i do think is very, very unfair is the media coverage of the election in which anything said about donald trump goes right to the front, you stay on it for five, six days, and hillary clinton says horrible things about catholics,
8:08 am
all of those respectfully hallie jackson did it with the -- >> not with the same intensity. >> and the wikileaks e-mails can read any of the e-mails. >> but people don't unless they're pushed on them. he. you want of the nine women who have accused mr. trump of kissing them -- >> the ninth one i'm not aware of. >> have you read the acco. firsthand account of the "people" magazine writer? >> i'm not the lawyer, but i have seen the rebuttal. >> did you read the accounts from the women. >> is that the woman on the plane? >> she's one of them. >> there's a witness who says it's not true. >> well, you're a prosecutor. would you take the witness who said 30 years ago, whatever it is, was on the plane, a guy who says he remembers, because he has a quote, photographic memory. would that be suv for you as a prosecutoring to take his story
8:09 am
she was able to lift the armrests, and in those days they didn't lift. it's also rather bizarre you could do that 15 minutes. that's a long time in first class, and in those days it was even more filled with flight attendants. the allegation on its face, strains credulity. >> one thing the head of the airline armrests did go up. i can't believe we're talking about those specifics, but he said they did go up and down. do you find any stories compelling? you're saying you don't believe all of them. >> i find all of them fit a pattern, and they come 27 days before an election. and the clintons conduct an election about as dirty as it gets. i find impossible that people remember 30 years ago and 20
8:10 am
these things. >> mr. mayor, what incentive would nine women have to come forward to expos one of the worst moments of that i lives to the public. >> at least one is represented by gloria allred, so her incentive is to get money. >> you think they're coming forward for money and fame. >> we also should have put on the relative of the woman who says this woman had said wonderful things about donald trump. >> the apprentice contestant? >> how terrific he is, and she turned on him completely. believe any of the nine accounts? >> i've known donald trump for 28 years, almost in every situation with him you can imagine, played golf with him, got to dinner, ball games with him. i've never seen donald trump act toward women other than a gentleman, including my wife and my daughters. in fact he's courtly in the way he acts toward women. i find these hard to believed. does he -- does he talk like a guy sometimes when you're hanging around and tell jokes
8:11 am
sure, but does he act like a gentleman? absolutely. >> all nine of these women are lying. >> i don't know if they're lying. you trust -- i don't know them. i trust him, he's my friend. he told me they're not true. i've never seen anything in his conduct, and i've known him longer than think do, that suggests evening an inkling of this, and the circumstances 27 days before an election when she's getting bombarded by wikileaks, and she needs something to the stuff she says in the e-mails is disqualifying to be president of the united states. there's a public and a private hillary. she doesn't know the "c" means confidential on a document. she shouldn't have been secretary of state. she couldn't pass a background check to get a government job, because she was extreme slid careless in the handling of classified information. thee trying to bury all that. she trying to get everyone to
8:12 am
>> what you're suggesting is these women have been directed by the clinton campaign, put forward by the clinton campaign through the media to tell their stories? they haven't come on their own? >> no, i am saying one thing -- i have a trial lawyer for a good deal of my life and investigator. i don't believe in coincidences. 27 days before an election, people are talking about things 30 years ago, one of which sounds absurd, minutes on an airplane, a lot of the rest of it absurd. the woman whose relative rebuts what she said. there are others who rebut the claims, and second, knowing the man, knowing what he's like. he is very, very courtly and gentlemanly toward women. >> but you know people who make these dlams don't come forward to get rich and get famous. these are difficult things for them to say publicly.
8:13 am
the women to come forward? >> as a prosecutor i've found you have to apply about a 50/50 test to this. the theory by had been ebb hillary clinton that every victim should be believed, in terms of hers husband's cases, she the elected not to believe those victims. that's nonsense. >> why do you believe those victims of bill clinton and not of donald trump. >> i don't necessarily believe or not believe. the point is she went and she's are a feminist. hillary clinton is on record as saying women should be believed, almost no matter what they saying. all of a sudden women come along and say bill clinton raped me, took advantage of me as an intern, and she goes and attacks. that means she was a phony. that was the attack. it wasn't about bill clinton's morality. i don't believe her. i had a lot of victims that didn't tell the truth.
8:14 am
distinction? >> you look for corroboration. does chef corroboration or he have corroboration? >> many of the victims do. >> that's not corroboration, people who remember it, anybody can say anything to anybody. people can say -- actually that's all hearsay. that's not even add miskt in a trial. >> i appreciate we've got long. i know you have to get going. >> i really wish chris wallace spends three minutes on stuff, and then the rest of it on taxes and isis. hillary's past and donald's past isn't going to be what affects us next year when our taxes go up or down. >> we'll see in the debate next week. thank you for your time. >> appreciate it. a horrific accident in san diego after a truck drove over the side of a bridge crashing into dozens below. california highway police say the driver who was critically
