tv   Anderson Cooper 360  CNN  February 5, 2016 6:00pm-7:01pm PST

6:00 pm
good evening. 9:00 p.m. eastern time. crunch time in new hampshire. just a weekend to go before the nation's first primary. for some of the candidates, it could be their first and last
6:01 pm
primary. in the case of bernie sanders and hillary clinton, it could be the beginning of a long, tough battle. he's at a state democratic party function with hillary clinton. they are both facing new cnn/wmur tracking numbers. senator sanders is holding on to a big lead over secretary clinton with most of the data coming after the debate last night. the republican side, it's donald trump followed by marco rubio, 11 points back, then ted cruz and john kasich and jeb bush running fourth. for governor bush as it's been really the entire campaign, it's a challenge which is why he's leaning heavily on someone very close and politically savvy. she's a senior member along with her husband george and late father-in-law in what some call the bush family business. she is former first lady barbara bush. today she and her son spoke with cnn correspondent jamie gangel. >> your secret weapon has come to new hampshire because --
6:02 pm
>> because she loves me. i'm her favorite son, temporarily. she is incredibly popular. the connection between mom and dad and people here in the granite state is phenomenal. anybody that has lived through all these campaigns can remember having dinner, having a picture, having a handwritten thank you note, going to kennebunkport. it's phenomenal. i learned by coming here and doing 90 separate events, some 25 trips, and she's incredibly popular as you might expect. >> she's your not so secret secret weapon. you are his mother. you are prejudiced, obviously. but tell us why you think jeb would be a great president? >> he has the best record. he's wise, he's decent. he knows american values. he knows the values of people in new hampshire. they care about their country. i love my country.
6:03 pm
i adore my child. every mother in new hampshire knows why i'm here, period. they know. >> is he your favorite son? >> today. >> it always gets a laugh when i say that so i keep saying that until no one stops. the day no one laughs anymore, i'll stop saying it. >> you got quite a crowd last night. >> yeah. >> and also got emotional. >> yes. >> because -- >> because, look, my mom doesn't have to be doing this. she's got her stroller with her judd sticker on it. she's 90 years old. it's a big ask to ask someone to fly from houston to come up here in the snow campaigning in front of people to relive all those things she used to do quite naturally. it was a big sacrifice. every time i see my mom, i think about my dad. >> it was no sacrifice, trust me. a great treat. >> it is no secret this has been
6:04 pm
a rough race for him. >> for everybody. >> for everybody. >> why do you think it's been so rough for jeb? >> i don't think it's been rougher for jeb than anyone else. i think, honestly, the press does not ever mention jeb. they don't. he's a nonperson, and they should mention him because he's the best qualified. he has the best record. he was a great governor. i think they should mention it. >> i think i heard you say that you think he's too polite. >> i think he is too polite. the others interrupt all the time, and he ought to butt in, but that's because he's too nice. >> you know, there's no such thing as being too nice. being nice doesn't mean you're not strong that you don't have fortitude. i got to be governor of the largest swing state in the country. i made really tough decisions. but you don't have to disparage people. that's not a sign of strength.
6:05 pm
in the reality tv world we're living in, insulting people is measured by strength but that's just ridiculous. we're electing a president. presidents need to have a steady hand, and they need to be strong on behalf of people that are struggling. i don't think i'm getting a bad shake here with the press. i don't think -- i'm focused on earning it. the expectations are high on me because of family, and i have higher expectations than anybody else on myself. so i don't feel bad at all. in fact, what's weird about this, this is supposed to be a rough and tumble election. this is pretty tame compared to previous elections. at least, i mean -- >> really? >> yeah, it's crazy. now have people saying crazy things. in terms of the give and take, ask mitt romney what it was like to get hit by the obama team or raudy raucous debates of the
6:06 pm
primary. ask my brother, ask my dad. this is nothing different. >> but none of them had donald trump. >> that's true. >> out there. >> no, that's different. >> have you ever seen a race like this? >> no, but as jeb says, every race is different. it is slightly shocking to me. >> because? >> because he doesn't give many answers to how he'd solve problems. he sort of makes faces and says insulting things. he's said terrible things about women. terrible things about military. i don't understand why people are for him for that reason. i'm a woman. i'm not crazy about what he says about women. >> he's called jeb low energy. he's called him dumb as a rock. between us, what do you really
6:07 pm
think about donald trump. >> be careful, mom. >> he's not dumb as a rock, nor is he what the other thing he called you. >> low energy. >> that is just not true at all. he's got lots of energy. he's been up here how many times? >> this is my second home. >> look. measuring strength by how loud you are or how you push people down to make yourself look good, is a sign of deep insecurity. it's not a sign of strength. >> mrs. bush, what's do you think of donald trump? you are known for being blunt and plainspoken. >> i don't think about him at all. >> really? >> i think about jeb and a qualifying candidate. >> is it true your husband sometimes throw things, a shoe -- >> no, that's the silliest thing. he can't even throw anymore. he's got parkinsons. if he throw, he wouldn't aim anyway, but he's wonderful, my
6:08 pm
husband. he's very much for jeb, and very proud of him. >> jeb, you have talked about a minute ago, you said that there's a lot of pressure on you living up to your family. you have struggled with how you balance being your own man. >> yes. >> and your family. now your mom is up here campaigning for you. your brother has just cut an ad for you. have you changed strategy? >> no. and i didn't say i'm struggling with being a bush. i'm 62 years old for crying out loud. i stopped getting therapy about this a long time ago. i did it in my mid-20s. i'm a goal-driven guy. got out of college in two years. already had a family. i decided i wanted to be half the man my dad was. my adult life has worked out pretty good, if i can get to half as good as he is in terms of being a husband, a father, a
6:09 pm
person that cares about people. so i don't have any struggles about being a bush. it's not a conflict at all. the fact that my brother is supporting me and my mom is up here campaign, the way i think about it, it would be kind of weird if they weren't. what would that say? >> donald trump is still leading in the polls. and wolf blitzer recently asked your supporter, senator lindsey graham, if he would support the republican nominee, even if trump wins, and lindsey graham said, yep, i'm buying a ticket on the "titanic." vintage lindsey graham. you have repeatedly said donald trump is not going to be the nominee. but he is still leading in the polls. >> sure. >> if he is the nominee, are you buying a ticket on the "titanic," too? >> i can't spin a line like
6:10 pm
lindsey. i will support the republican nominee no matter who he or she is. i've done it my entire life. i've signed a pledge to do it. i want to win, though. i want the republican party's candidate to win. i want a conservative to serve in the white house. i believe i'm best qualified. that's why i'm fighting for this. >> you have a new ad coming out that contrasts you and marco rubio. >> yeah. >> right now, he is leading in the polls. going into new hampshire. is it hurting the establishment lane if you are attacking him? >> he's attacking me. so does that count or is this just only a one-way street? is this the child of privilege that has a free pass when everybody else has to fight for it? this isn't beanbag. this is politics. every campaign will be -- every candidate will be contrasted and
6:11 pm
compared. their records need to be shown. he has no record of accomplishment. he's a gifted politician. got elected at the age of 26. very charismatic and a wonderful person. but he doesn't have a record. >> chris christie has been going, as we say, full new jersey. he has taken the gloves off, attacking marco rubio, and there was a report that your campaign and his campaign behind the scenes are coordinated. >> no, no, and i'm -- >> absolutely not? >> i've gotten the full new jersey from christie during this campaign and it's good not to be his target because he's pretty good at that stuff. john kasich and chris christie and i share one common feature. we had to make tough decisions. they do it today as governor. i did it for eight years. my record of accomplishments out there for the world to see. and other candidates, they may have the virtues of being a
6:12 pm
great speaker. i'm sure they'll brag about that. but my record is a record of accomplishment. i don't need to have it coordinated with anybody. >> there's a theory out there that it's personal between you and marco rubio. >> not at all. >> that's if you're not going to win, you're going to make sure he doesn't win. >> no, no. i will support the republican nominee. as i always have. i've always worked hard to elect the most conservative person to be president of the united states because i think that philosophy is the one that can lift people out of poverty. can create income for the middle class. can keep us safe. there's nothing personal about this at all. >> mrs. bush, going into new hampshire, what would you like people to know about your son? >> i'd like them to know he's wise and decent and he has values that we want our children to have. that he wants to serve. i think that's very important. i'd like to remind you, george bush came out of iowa with big
6:13 pm
mo and then there was no mo after that. so, remember, the campaign is just starting, and i want them to know that jeb is the finest man almost i know. he's very much same values of service that his father has. and his brothers, and his sis r sister, and maybe his old lady. >> that's you? you're not my old lady. >> you dodged me on donald trump. you want to go full new jersey on donald trump? >> no, no, i do not. i don't even think about him. i'm sick of him. that's very strong. >> jamie gangel joins us. you have a long history interviewing the bush family. what stands out to you this time? >> i think two things. they are political pros. they've won races. they've lost races. they know what it's like.
6:14 pm
they don't give up, and this may sound a little corny, but when jeb talks about expectations, many of us are raised with high expectations. i think the bar is very high in that family, and i think that it's -- he does feel a certain burden. it's sort of interesting having interviewed the father, the brother, jeb, to see that they all have this sense of living up to the family's expectations. >> it's also great to see barbara bush out there. she's looking great. and, you know, clearly still very deeply involved. she's known to be a straight shooter, very blunt. >> she is a rock star out there. she is funny.
6:15 pm
she is sharp. when she wants to, she certainly knows how to go full new jersey. she's, you know, people really respond to her. and she's very sharp in her opinions. and there's no question that she has said some tougher things about donald trump than she was willing to say on camera. when you heard jeb say, be careful, mom, he meant it. they do not call her the enforcer for nok, but it's really remarkable to see her at 90 out there. she's terrific. >> great to see her. jamie gangel, thank you. are jeb bush and chris christie essentially teaming occupy marco rubio? we'll playing you a pair of attack ads. later, my interview with donald trump. and decision making. we'll talk about how he goes about it.
6:16 pm help sense danger before7 was engiyou do. . because when you live to innovate, you innovate to live. the all-new audi q7. a higher form of intelligence has arrived.
6:17 pm
i am a lot of things. i am his guardian. i am his voice. so i asked about adding once-daily namenda xr to his current treatment for moderate to severe alzheimer's. it works differently. when added to another alzheimer's treatment, it may improve overall function and cognition. and may slow the worsening of symptoms for a while. vo: namenda xr doesn't change how the disease progresses. it shouldn't be taken by anyone allergic to memantine, or who's had a bad reaction to namenda xr or its ingredients. before starting treatment, tell their doctor if they have, or ever had, a seizure disorder, difficulty passing urine, liver, kidney or bladder problems, and about medications they're taking. certain medications, changes in diet, or medical conditions may affect the amount of namenda xr in the body and may increase side effects. the most common side effects are headache, diarrhea, and dizziness.
6:18 pm
all my life, he's protected me. now i am giving back. ask their doctor about once-daily namenda xr and learn about a free trial offer at then i slowly feel it start to kind of wrap itself around me- then the next thing i know it's morning. with tempur-flex you've got the spring and bounce of a traditional mattress and it also adjusts to my body. ahhh... my cloud feels so comfortable. it feels like somebody's hugging you. how can a bed do that? (vo) there's a tempur-pedic for everyone. find the feel that's right for you. and now through february 28th, save up to $300 on one of our most popular tempur-breeze mattress sets.
6:19 pm
it's an old story. two guys being chased by a bear. wop says, i hope i can outrun it. the other one says, i don't have to outrun it. i only have to outrun you. the republican race is exactly the opposite. chris christie and jeb bush almost seem to be teaming up on marco rubio. the front-runner in the establishment lane. they're also now running very similar attack ads. take a look.

6:20 pm
>> what do you list as marco rubio's top accomplishment? >> there's a guy who has been able to, number one, win a tough election in florida. >> can you name his top accomplishment? >> my feeling on marco is someone who has tremendous potential, tremendous gifts. >> i guess it's hard to say they're accomplishments. i'll ask it one more time. >> list one accomplishment that marco rubio has achieved in four years in the united states senate. >> jeb bush ran florida. marco rubio finished a sentence. >> a guy who has been able to, number one -- >> bottom line is, there isn't a whole lot of accomplishments, and i just don't think it's a fair question. >> i'm jeb bush, and i approve this message. >> two ads, one sound bite, one scathing message from our gary tuchman. >> reporter: chris christie with a campaign stop at a pizza place in new hampshire. no matter how you slice it, he's got some work to do.
6:21 pm
>> thank you all for coming today. >> reporter: to be competitive in the granite state. he's made a conscious decision to criticize marco rubio. some of his supporters have no problems with making rubio a target. >> we think christie by talking negatively about rubio is a good strategy for him? >> i don't view it as negative. i view it as contrasting the strengths and witnesses of each candidate. >> i think christie has the edge over rubio because of his leadership experience versus what rubio has. >> reporter: the message christie is trying to send is that rubio doesn't have enough experience. some at this pizza restaurant think at this point in the campaign, that's a good tactic. >> it is a good experience. >> chris christie is investing quite a bit of time in new hampshire. if he does poorly here, it's hard to see a path to victory. he's adopted the strategy of trying to convince people considering rubio to reconsider.
6:22 pm
>> jeb bush has been critical of his fellow floridian and former protege, too. while some of his supporters agree with his line of attack, some have misgivings. >> i honestly wish that politicians did not criticize anyone else. >> many bush and christie supporters are torn. they want their candidates to get their mojo back but are concerned negative campaigning can backfire. >> you always want to accentuate your own strengths. i wouldn't say it's the best strategy, but it's a strategy. >> reporter: and it's a strategy that shows no signs of letting up. >> can we expect to keep hearing about marco rubio from you? >> he's one of them. he's gotten some momentum from iowa and everybody has to consider what that vote means. but i get asked about other folks, i'll talk about them, too. >> reporter: expect the attacks to continue as the days wind
6:23 pm
down to the nation's first presidential primary. >> gary joins us from manchester. did you talk to any of those people who felt bush or christie should have been more critical about their opponents earlier in the campaign like trump is doing? >> we talked to some that felt that way particularly at the pizza place. one of the gentlemen said christie needed to be more aggressive early on, needs to keep being aggressive and has been too nice of a guy. of course that's a high irony because christie is not exactly known as the shy retiring type, but donald trump is pretty much, christie and everyone else in the race with temperament issues. >> gary, thanks. joining us to talk about the political punches, conservative writer mona charon. also a bush supporter ana navarro. does it make sense for jeb bush and chris christie to go after marco rubio so hard? doesn't it keep the
6:24 pm
establishment lane divided which would make it easier for rubio or cruz to build support? >> it's a tough context, a tough race. this is not paddy cake. they are competing for the big chair in the oval office. and, yes, they're going to hit each other. they're going to be tactical about it. it has come to this. it's going to get a lot tougher in the next two to three days. >> the publisher of the union leader newspaper, it's endorsed christie, they wrote an editorial and said young rubio must think new hampshire a bunch of rubes. he hasn't spent much time here. earth to rubio. you are a u.s. senator. the senate meets in washington. you are hardly an outsider. it's a bit disingenuous for a sitting u.s. senator to paint themselves as washington
6:25 pm
outsiders. >> well, look. this has become one of the memes this year. are you part of the establishment,oon outsider? these terms have lost any meaning. they've become epithets thrown around at people you don't like. but regarding jeb bush's attacks on rubio, i find it really kind of sad because i have long been a jeb bush fan. and i wish that he were more -- that the voters were more receptive to him, but they're not. he has the worst standing of any republican in the field with general election voters with the exception of donald trump. and it's a shame that bush is deciding at this stage, having seen the abysmal results he achieved to return with such foracity on his former friend and ally marco rubio rather than use the techniques that he used
6:26 pm
in his very inspirational announcement speech for example, which was the best of jeb bush. and now we're seeing the gutter politician. not a good way to end it, in my opinion. >> how personal has this become? >> may i just say, they are all trying to drink out of the same bowl whether it's kasich, christie, rubio, jeb. marco is trying to straddle both sides of this fence right now. he's been trying to bring together the establishment and the base. >> you have to be -- >> that being said, though. you went on for a long time against jeb. it's what it is. a lot of people would say to you that they are very angry and they think it's sad that his former protege is running against a guy who probably made it possible for him to have a political career in florida. that being said, we are where we are. and believe you me, it is not any more painful for you than it is for me who is a friend that
6:27 pm
has known both of them practically my entire adult life. but i come to accept this is where we are. we're in the midst of a republican primary. a lot of crossfire going on and it's not just jeb and marco. it's marco, jeb, kasich, christie, trump. it's cruz. it's carson versus cruz. so, you know, let's just figure it out. we've got to get through this. and it's not going to be kumbaya for a while. >> isn't this what happens in the rough and tumble of the final days of a campaign? >> oh, sure. i didn't just fall off the turnip truck. i understand politics can be a little sloppy and a little dirty. i'm just saying that it's, you know, when you look at the ads that bush is running against rubio, they are really -- they are kind of silly because this is the narcissism of small differences. >> mona and ana, appreciate it. have a good weekend. upper ne next, more of my
6:28 pm

but i've managed.e crohn's disease is tough, except that managing my symptoms was all i was doing. and when i finally told my doctor, he said humira is for adults like me who have tried other medications but still experience the symptoms of moderate to severe crohn's disease. and that in clinical studies, the majority of patients on humira saw significant symptom relief. and many achieved remission. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. ask your gastroenterologist about humira.

6:32 pm
more on my interview with donald trump up close and personal. yesterday he took questions from voters at theo's restaurant in new hampshire. today he made's quip about having dinner with one voter leaning toward voting for him but wasn't 100% sure. it was a running joke and a casual atmosphere. but some of the questions tackled the bigger issues. >> this is timothy baines, a restaurant owner. he's still undecided. you can convince him as well. >> hi, mr. trump. i own a small restaurant here in manchester and interact with young people. it's clear they don't trust washington. >> i don't either. >> it's a polarized environment. i feel like a lot of that is because of our most recent two presidents. what tools will you bring to the table to be able to work with people on both sides of the aisle. >> in manhattan, i built a tremendous company and somebody was mentioning today, i built really a city on the west side
6:33 pm
of manhattan. you know it very well, trump place. it goes from 72nd street to 59th street. i had to get zoning. this might sound simple. anderson would understand. >> it's not an easy thing to do. >> i was told it's impossible. people thought it was impossible to ever get it done. i got it zoned for a 6,000 -- almost 6,000-unit job with tremendous shopping, tremendous parking, thousands and thousands of spaces. i got it zoned for one of the great jobs and it's been a tremendous success. to get that zone and to get that taken care of, you can negotiate anything. one other thing. i just got the old post office on pennsylvania avenue. every major company in the country wanted that hotel company. and i got that. who did i get it from? the obama administration. if you think about it. i had a great plan, i have a great balance sheet. i got it from obama. we can solve problems if -- >> politically, though, you are
6:34 pm
polarizing but you're saying once you get to washington you can get deals done? >> ronald reagan and tip o'neill were very opposite. they really liked each other. >> for some -- >> compromise is not a dirty word but we have to get a much better part of the compromise. we have people that will never be able to make deals. somebody said, oh, he'll make deals. i'm going to make good deals. ied me bi ed mmade billions of >> some worry you'll compromise too much on conservative principles. >> i'm not a huge compromiser. i make great deals. i own some of the greatest assets in the world. people wanted them. >> is it important to get a deal or stand on a principle? >> both. honestly, you'll get the deal done but only if it's right. on the iran deal, i never would have started negotiating that unless they let our prisoners go first. got to let our accompliprisonne. i would have doubled up the
6:35 pm
sach sanctions. within 24 hours, they would have let the prisoners go. we are a busted country. we have no money. we owe $19 trillion. my father always says take the lumps out. son, take the lumps out. >> what's does that mean? >> make it a little nicer. normally i'd say we're not giving you the $150 billion. instead, fellas, we owe $19 trillion. we are a country that has no money. we can't give you the 150. they'll say, but we want it. we don't have it. that's called taking the lumps out. they will go crazy. it will break up. two days later they'll call back, let's make a deal. we keep the $150 billion. what have they done? i think i got him. i think i have them both. but you know what? what have we done with 150? what have they done? they bought 118 airbus planes, not boeing planes. they are spending all of their money in europe. they are giving russia big money for missiles. why are they allowed to buy
6:36 pm
missiles? it's so unfair and so incompetent. >> more of my interview with trump. he opened up about his family, including his wife. here's how he described the moment. >> i was at a party and i was a single person at a party and she was standing there. three or four supermodels. look who is here. and i say forget about them. i want that one. who is that? od, sort of. and 500 calories or less. the clean pairings menu. at panera. food as it should be. go on a first date. my passion is puppetry. here? i think we're done here. hate drama? go to research, price, find. only helps you get the right car without all the drama. you can fly across welcome town in minutes16, or across the globe in under an hour.

it said, "rocky mountaineer: all aboard amazing". more from my conversation in new hampshire with donald trump and the voters. we switched gears and got a little more personal. >> these small mediums are nice because it allows people to see you both your policies and also your personal side. i want to end with a couple personal questions. one, i was fascinated by this "wall street journal" article last week or so. i talked to a reporter about it about how you make decisions. it was a real insight into you as a person and as a potential leader. she was on your plane and saw when you speak you take out a piece of paper. you have like bullet points. you kind of speak extemporaneously. and a lot of your

decision-making is really from your gut. it's you in a room on your plane, reading polls, watching television, thinking and then you say, you know what? ted cruz has been riding too high in iowa. we're going to take him down and this is how we'll do it. is that how you make decisions? >> i am born with a very good memory. i get credit. i spoke yesterday in arkansas. we had the biggest crowd they've ever had in this stadium. zz top had the record from 1972. can you believe it? i said nobody is going to believe it. ask the head of the stadium to get up. he announced it. i'm forntunate i have a good memory where i don't have to read speeches off teleprompters. if you are running for president you shouldn't be allowed to use a teleprompter. people don't get to know who you are. i put things into my brain. i listen to you. i listen to this.
6:42 pm
i listen to everybody. in the end you have to make a decision. >> you have very finely tuned antenna to what your supporters want, what your instincts seem very well honed for somebody who has not been in the political realm for a long time. >> that's the one thing. i've only been a politician for seven months. i hate to even call myself a politician. i've only been a politician for a short time. i've always been a business person. a jobs creator. i created tens of thousands of jobs over my lifetime. now it's different. i love the debates. i really like the debates. i like doing the whole process. it's a very different process. one of the reasons i like it and know i can fix it. i was on the other side of it. i know how it works. when i talk about with these questions, when i talk about the drug companies how they control the price of drugs. why wouldn't anybody say bid out the drugs? it's because politicians are essentially legally paid off. they are legally paid off not to touch the drugs. i mean, can you imagine when i go in and say instead of you
