tv   CNN Newsroom With Brooke Baldwin  CNN  November 3, 2016 11:00am-12:01pm PDT

11:00 am
hi there, i'm brooke baldwin, you are watching cnn. thank you for being with me. count them with me -- five days to go, five. high drama on the campaign trail. any moment now melania trump will be stepping behind that podium there, stumping, of course, for her husband. making her first solo speech on the trail and her first speech from the republican national convention in cleveland. she is not the only one. ted cruz, remember he called donald trump a sniveling coward, he will be on the stump for mr.
11:01 am
trump today on the flip side, president obama holding two events in florida, including one a short time from now. you have senator bernie sanders appearing with hillary clinton in north carolina to want. we haven't seen the two of them together i think since he endorsed her some time ago back in new hampshire. but back to these live pictures. this is the philadelphia suburb of berwyn, pennsylvania. she will be giving a speech any moment where, by the way, we've just learned, the clintons and obamas will be appear together not in berwyn but in downtown philadelphia next monday night on the eve of election day. so let's start where we're looking here in the suburbs with sara murray standing by ahead of melania trump's speech. let's rip the band-aid off. we remember that rnc speech. we remember how it was wonderful and then we remember how the world learned she borrowed words from the first lady. can we -- what do you know as far as how she's been preparing for this one, sara?
11:02 am
>> thant was a very disappointig moment. they felt like their staff let them down. she's been working with kellyanne conway, donald trump's campaign manager on her speech for today. we're expecting her to delive it from a teleprompter and she's practiced it with staffers. but the fact she's working with kellyanne gives you a sense of not just how much donald trump has trusted kellyanne. but they both know the kind of message she wants to get out there. donald trump is the attack dog of this campaign, melania wants to deliver a more optimistic message. she wants to talk about what she is going to do as first lady. and she wants to talk about what donald trump is as a husband but also as a father to their young son baron and we have seen a little hesitation from melania to get out there back on the campaign trail but sources are telling me that has a lot to do with the fact that she's saying
11:03 am
publicly and privately her most important goal is to be at home raising their son but at any rate it will be interesting to see what she has to say today. we're expecting it to be a relatively short speech, about 15 to 20 minutes but a high profile one given out rarely. brooke? >> sara, thank you so much. we'll take melania live as soon as we see her. in the meantime, mrs. trump was at her husband's side, day one of his campaign. we remember the pictures. the escalator ride there in trump tower, june 16, 2015. it would turn out to be a presidential campaign unlike any other. since that day the former model has stepped in and out of the spotlight. here's a look back on how melania trump arrived at this moment today. >> are we going to see more of her on the campaign trail? >> very much so. melania, say a few words. come on. >> hello, iowa. this is very, very special night
11:04 am
and you're voting for your next president. i will be me, i will be different than any other first ladies. from a young age, my parents impressed on me the values that you work hard for what you want in life. >> michelle obama gives a speech and everyone love withes it. it's fantastic. they think she's absolutely great. my wife melania gives the exact same speech -- [ laughter and applause ] and people get on her case. she's actually going to make two or three speeches. >> oh! >> remember that morning on "good morning america" she's like "wait, i am?" let me bring in chief political correspondent dana bash, "usa today's" washington bureau chief susan page who is covering the presidential campaign number 10,
11:05 am
juliet williams, professor of gender studies at ucla and emily jane fox, a staff writer for "vanity fair." ladies, good to talk to you today and dane a bash, let me begin with you. i made the point with sara, listen, we won't harp on it but we remember the rnc speech. it didn't go so well. can you tell me more about what you've learned? the thinking behind the speech and who really wrote it? >> who wrote it is unclear. as sara was reporting, she has been working hand in glove with the campaign manager kellyanne conway on the speech but i think to be fair that that was very embarrassing for melania trump by all accounts, she was not happy about it neither was her husband because the fact is she's not anywhere near a politician, she is not incredibly active politically who understands the nuts and
11:06 am
bolts of politics. it's not even close to where she comes from by way of background but the fact that she is where she is today, the fact that she is not only in pennsylvania not only in the philly suburb, brooke, but in chester county which, of the four philly suburbs, was the only one to go -- just barely, 0.5%, for mitt romney, it shows you what their goal is which is get out the vote and try to appeal to suburban women and men but mostly women who live in those areas who, according to sources i've talked to, they say polls dropped dramatically in and around the "access hollywood" tape coming up but are coming back up so she's trying to seal the deal with those voters and as one source said to me so many times, the trump family presents well and that includes his wife.
11:07 am
>> you've written about melania trump but you're from this general neck of the woods and you wrote this "it's an area cosmopolitan enough to have a soul cycle and a fly wheel with mercedes suvs are at school pickup. it's not hard to imagine the women of suburban philadelphia being entranced by melania's glamour." tell me more. >> melania is an interesting curiosity to everyone in america. she does present very well. do i think this is necessarily going sway voters? we don't know because melania has not been on the campaign trail. it's interesting the campaign is trying to test something brand new five days before the election day. does melania play well to philadelphia and suburban voters? we don't know, she hasn't played to them before. >> susan page, how much is this
11:08 am
about what she says growing up in slovenia, coming here wanting to be an american, doing it the proper way versus just the fact, to emily's point, that she is just finally speak iing. >> she has a unique ability to offer a testimonial for donald trump and one that he needs. i spent time in chester county last month talking to college-educated white and many were uncomfortable talking about donald trump. she can say he's a good man, he is not a sexist man, he is someone that i trust, he's been good to me is and my son and our family so when you have these concerns about his temperament and demeanor and attitude toward women she's one who can say -- you can feel reassured you can vote for him, whether that works
11:09 am
or not we'll see but it seems that's the number one goal they have for her today. >> professor, let me go to you. to susan's point. she could be this perfect female voice speaking to these women but on the flip side given what has been reported, given that billy bush/donald trump, talking about sexism and family values, what's the believability factor? >> i don't think i'm the only one that think it's too much to have melania trump lecturing us about family values. the question i'd like to ask melania is what do you say about this to your 10-year-old son? do you say look, honey, it's okay to make jokes about grabbing women by the "p" word as long as you keep in the the locker room and don't let anybody tape record it? that's not good parenting, that has nothing to do with where
11:10 am
this country needs to go and i don't think americans are going to buy it. >> but she's also talked about her son baron and how hillary clinton from a trump perspective, perhaps from a republican perspective, isn't exactly the woman who she would want her son look up to. >> what we need to do for all our daughters and sons is realize that this is a historic electi election, the first time we have a woman as a major candidate and this is our opportunity to finally acknowledge that we have a huge gender problem in this country and we need to start talking about the issues that are going to make a difference for our sons, for our daughters, for our working mothers, for our men and women and these are not the issues we are talking about when we keep getting diverted by the understandable horror at the republican candidate's
11:11 am
unbelievable potty mouth. but we need to start talking about issues like pay equity, issues like raising the minimum wage when we realized that the majority of low-wage workers in this country are women we need to talk about sexual violence and a whole host of issues that will make a difference in add draeszi i dressing our gender problems. >> we're watchi ining and waitio hear from melania trump. we are five days away from election day. stay with us all day next tuesday but we will take melania trump live and hear what she has to say next from pennsylvania. you both have a perfect driving record. perfect. no tickets. no accidents. that is until one of you clips a food truck ruining your perfect record.
11:12 am
yup. now, you would think your insurance company would cut you some slack. right? no, your insurance rates go through the roof. your perfect record doesn't get you anything. anything. perfect. for drivers with accident forgiveness, liberty mutual won't raise your rates due to your first accident. ed

11:14 am
♪ whoa, talkin' 'bout my love ♪ impressive linda. it seems age isn't slowing you down. but your immune system weakens as you get older increasing the risk for me, the shingles virus. i've been lurking inside you since you had chickenpox. i could surface anytime as a painful, blistering rash. one in three people get me in their lifetime, linda. will it be you? and that's why linda got me zostavax, a single shot vaccine. i'm working to boost linda's immune system to help protect her against you, shingles. zostavax is a vaccine used to prevent shingles in adults fifty years of age and older. zostavax does not protect everyone and cannot be used to treat shingles or the nerve pain that may follow it. you should not get zostavax if you are allergic to gelatin or neomycin, have a weakened immune system or take high doses of steroids are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. the most common side effects include redness, pain, itching, swelling, hard lump warmth or bruising at the injection site and headache.
11:15 am
it's important to talk to your doctor about what situations you may need to avoid since zostavax contains a weakened chickenpox virus. remember one in three people get shingles in their lifetime, will it be you? talk you to your doctor or pharmacist about me, single shot zostavax. you've got a shot against shingles. . welcome back, live pictures waiting to hear from melania trump. this is the first time she's spoken publicly alone at the republican national convention
11:16 am
last summer. she's done a couple interviews since then. i have dana bash, susan page and emily jane fox still with me. just a quick reminder as we talk about bigger picture in pennsylvania, battleground state, we learned today that on monday night, election eve, the obamas and the clintons will be holding a mega rally in philadelphia. dana, let me continue our conversation with you, we know trump's campaign manager kellyanne conway held a press gaggle talking a bit about some of the themes that we'll hear in melania's speech. what did she say? >> as you're asking me that, i'm pulling that up on my phone. she was talking about the fact that what melania trump is going to address are the things she would do as first lady. so she's not going to talk about the elephant in the room, so to speak, about questions about what she thinks about what her husband has said and done in the past. but she's more going to be talking about that and also this
11:17 am
this is from kellyanne conway, she'll talk about how social media to be a tool for good and is in our country but that at the same time it can be devastating to the image and self-worth of a lot of teenagers. that is really specific and on a micro level this close to the election. she thinks she can relate to moms and dads about concerns about social media that people have on a daily basis, especially parents of teenager, about how that affects their lives. it's the relatability factor. looks like she's going to try to do with that one dpam nepal. >> and eric forgive me do you want to roll on?
11:18 am
we know how mr. trump is on twitter and a lot of times potential first ladies are brought out to soften the image of their husband candidate more to this case? we know one is a bomb. does she soften mr. trump? >> i think melania sounds like donald when you listen to her. we've only seen her a handful of times and she comes out as an attack dog and she has the right to stand up for herself and her husband and i think many wives can relate to that as well. but in terms of softening his ima image she seems more on the offense than defense. >> i have a sister who is a mom and playing to that social media bully side of things would appeal to moms everywhere and in that area. but what we've seen before from
11:19 am
melania, this is not her strongest suit in terms of softening her husband. >> this is karen pence, by the way, everyone watching, this governor mike pence's wife, the one who is introducing melania. that tells me we are very close to the headlining speaker here in mrs. trump so before we get there, susan page, what will you be listening for? how can melania help her husband five days out and especially in a place that has been pretty solid for hillary clinton although i know donald trump has been gaining ground in pennsylvania. >> and, of course, it's a place where republicans traditionally have done pretty well and a place where republicans have to do well if they'll carry the state of pennsylvania, so obviously a critical place. the whole issue of cyber bullying is something melania trump has talked about before and she's talked about it in terms of her own experiences. you remember the photos taken of her when she was working as a model got spread all over the world on social media and she
11:20 am
defended herself. this is something that i think women in general, maybe mothers in particular do worry about with their kids and themselves about what goes on sometimes in social media so that strikes me as a good issue and all of to that goes to portraying her husband as a more three dimensional figure when it comes to these issues when it seems like he is the one speaking at the podium. >> that's a piece of it. i know you mentioned kellyanne said she'd talk about her immigration story her life growing up in slovenia was not an easy life. her desire to become an american an immigrating legally ten years lat later. >> it's the personal story. just as susan said, it's making donald trump and the people around him not just a caricature
11:21 am
because it seems like the glamorous life she's living now wasn't what it was like beforehand. so this is in many way politics 101, marketing 101 that you want to make the person or the product or whatever it is that you're selling somebody who you want to hear more about. there's a reason why "us" magazine and "people" magazine are as popular as they are. that's no question what this is abo about. we are moments away from
11:22 am
hearing melania trump. quick break, you're moments away. you're watching cnn.
11:23 am
11:24 am
let's go, here she is, melania trump. ♪ harmony and understanding, sympathy and trust abounding ♪ mystic crystal revelation [ cheers and applause ] >> thank you, played in the did of indiana karen pence, thank you, that was very nice. >> love you! [ cheers and applause ] >> thank you, we love you, too. what a wonderful welcome here in
11:25 am
pennsylvania. it has been more than 500 days since my husband, donald trump, announced he would run for president of the united states. [ cheers and applause ] i remember that day in june, 2015, vividly. surrounded by our family and speaking to an audience of million millions donald promised to campaign on behalf of those who feel the system is broken and does not work for them, an opportunity for a better edg educati education, a better paying job, a better future. [ cheers and applause ] he pledged to restore integrity to washington and respect for america abroad. this is not an ordinary campaign.
11:26 am
it is a movement. [ cheers and applause ] a movement where people feel inspired and involved, i have seen it firsthand. we are deeply grateful to the millions of americans who believe in my husband because they know he believes in you. he believes in america and he will make fantastic president of these united states. [ cheers and applause ] i come here today to talk about my husband donald and his deep love and respect for this country and all of its people. i have come to talk about this man i have known for 18 years and i have come here today to talk about our partnership, our family, and what i know for sure
11:27 am
in my heart about this man who will make america great again. [ cheers and applause ] i know exactly what that means. i grew up in a small town in slovenia near a beautiful river and forests. slovenia is a small country that back then was under communist ru rule. we always knew about the incredible place called america. america was the word for freedom and opportunity. america meant if you could dream it you could become it. [ cheers and applause ] when i was 10 years old we learned a man named ronald reagan was elected president of the united states of america. [ cheers and applause ] we heard what he was saying and
11:28 am
doing. president reagan's "morning in america" was not just something in the united states, it felt like morning around the world. it was a great inspiration to me. later i lived in milan and paris working hard as a fashion model. i worked with people from all over the world. fashion is a business of glamour, but it is also hard work. there are ups and downs, high highs and ridicule and rejection, too. i loved my work and as a young entrepreneur i wanted to follow my dreams to a place where freedom and opportunity were in abundance so, of course, i came here.
11:29 am
but i wanted something more. i wanted to be an american. after a ten-year process which included many visas and a green card, in 2006 i studied for the test and became a u.s. citizen. [ cheers and applause ] it's the greatest privilege in the world. i'm an immigrant and let me tell you, no one values america more than me, both as an independent woman and someone who immigrated to america. love for country is something i immediately shared with donald. he knows how to get things done,
11:30 am
not just talk. he certainly knows how to shake things up, doesn't he? [ cheers and applause ] make america great again is not just some slogan. it is what has been in his heart since the day i met him. over the years of our marriage i have watched my husband grow more and more concerned as he sees american workers suffer. i have watched him get frustrated as he cease parents struggle to care for children why working outside the home. i have watched him as he sees over and over again policies that make our country less strong, less secure, less safe. every time my husband learned of a factory closing in ohio or north carolina or here in
11:31 am
pennsylvania i saw him get very upset. he could see what was happening. he saw the problems and he always talked about how he could fix them. my family is truly blessed. the most important thing we have in our family is health and love and loyalty. [ cheers and applause ] donald has built a very successful company. the prooef ledge to go to work each day to do a job he loves alongside of his adult children, this is a great blessing for any pare parent. he had a great and fulfilling life but donald knew he could not sit by any more and watch what was happening in our country. and that is when this campaign, this movement began.
11:32 am
>> [ cheers and applause ] [ audience chanting "trump" ] donald has asked simple but important questions. what kind of country do we want? do we want a country that is safe with secure borders? yes. do we want a country where every american gets a fair shot? yes. do we want a country that honors our constitution? do we want a country that honors life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness? do we want a country that respects women and provides them with equal opportunity? develop we wa
11:33 am
do we want a country where every child has access to a good education? do we want children to be safe and secure and dream big dreams? do we want president who is beholden to no one but you the american people? [ cheers and applause ] do we want a president who will fight for you and never give up? then we want donald trump to be our president. [ cheers and applause ] [ audience chanting "trump" ] people have asked me if donald is the president what kind of first lady will you be? it will be my honor and privilege to serve this country.
11:34 am
[ cheers and applause ] i will be an advocate for women and for children. let me tell you a little bit more about what that means to me. i'm a full-time mother to our son baron, an incredible boy. [ laughter ] as his father travels around the country running for president, i'm with our son. we talk a little bit about politics and a lot about life, home work, and sports. baron has many privileges and advantages. we know how fortunate we have still, i have the same conversations with my son that many of you have with your sons and daughters. and nieces and nephews, grandchildren and god children. i want my little boy to know that he's blessed to have been
11:35 am
been born in a country that values individual freedom and constitutional democracy. i want our children in this country and all around the world to live a beautiful life, to be safe and secure. to dream freely of love and a family of their own someday. we need to teach our youth american values -- kindness, honesty, respect, compassion, charity, understanding, cooperation. i worry ant our children. social media is a tool for communication, it can ease isolation so many people feel in the modern world. technology has changed our
11:36 am
univer universe. but like anything, it can have a bad side. we've seen this already. as adults, many of us are able to handle mean words, even lies. children and teenagers can be fragile. they are hurt when they are made fun of or made to feel less in looks or intelligence. this makes their life hard and can force them to hide and retreat. our culture has gotten too mean and too rough. especially to children and teenagers. it is never okay when a 12-year-old girl or boy is mocked, bullied or attacked. it is terrible when that happens on the playground and it is unacceptable when it's done by
11:37 am
someone with no name hiding on the internet. we have to find a better way to talk to each other, to disagree with each other, to respect each other. we must find better way to honor and support the basic goodness of our children, especially in social media. it will be one of the main focuses of my work if i'm privileged enough to become your first lady. [ cheers and applause ] i will also work hard to improve everyday life for women. the women in america are incredible, they're strong, intelligent, generous, committed, determined. with opportunity, women will advance and achieve. but some women have been left
11:38 am
behind. i see that. we cannot call ourselves a fully developed or advanced nation when 50% of our women live in poverty. when 60 million are without health insurance. when too many are choosing between basic needs like rent, food, and health care. this cannot be this cannot be. we cannot afford to have more of the same. we must break with the failures of the past and embrace a future that is worthy of this great nation and her beautiful people. [ cheers and applause ] we must win on november 8. and we must come together as americans. we must come together two respect and kindness even when we disagree. i will be there to support my
11:39 am
husband's efforts to all americans when he's president. donald trump will make america fair. he will make america safe, he will make america prosperous. he will make america proud. and, yes, this man i know so well, donald trump, with your help and got's grace will make america great again. [ cheers and applause ] thank you. god bless you and god bless this beautiful country. >>s that more affluent suburb of h philadelphia in berwyn. she talked about what we anticipated about her immigration story and if she
11:40 am
were to be first lady. we'll talk about the aquarius walk in song. i jotted down when melania said "i want to be an advocate for women and children" and she went on and said "our culture has gotten too mean" she talked about bullying. how do i ask this? i mean, her husband refers to hillary clinton as crooked hillary, we heard about lying ted, low energy jeb, not to mention his tweets. would heidi cruz agree, for example? . how would you respond that? >> i was listening thinking going into this speech we were discussing the fact we knew she would be talking about trying to deal with the social media issues for children but hearing
11:41 am
the words come out of her mouth all i kept thinking was have you met donald trump? maybe you should talk to your husband about the example he has set on this issue. obviously the biggest was heidi cruz, the fact that he retweeted something which was not very nice, making fun of her looks, comparing her, ironically, to his wife who is a, as you saw there, a model. so it was an interesting thing to push given the history of herb husband's own social media activity but if you can separate that -- which is a big if, the idea she's trying to relate to women who are dealing with this -- and men who are dealing with this in their homes if their parents every single day, i know personally -- my son
11:42 am
isn't old enough to have a phone but my fwloebds do have kids, it's a big, big problem. cyber bullying, things that people would say that they would never say in their face. but the fact she gave this speech -- regardless of who wrote it or how it came to be -- again, not in her first language, not something she does very often it was a remarkable performance on the performance factor alone. >> emily, what did you think? >> i thought she did a great job. i thought it was classic melania trump and classic trump family speech where it was so polished and very well delivered and you walk away thinking these people are so impressive, they're natural entertainer, they have a gift for that. but when you sit there and listen to what was said -- and this is true for melania in the past and each of the children
11:43 am
who have spoken on his behalf -- there's very little personal information about their relationships. i don't think i heard a single example of how she relates to her husband other than he'll make america great again, he believes in this country and true for the convention speeches of ivanka and tiffany and eric. maybe they would throw in one or two personal examples of playing with blocks on their father's office floor but you rarely hear the personal side and if the point is to humanize him and give him that third dimension, we don't get that very much in the trump family. susan, we were texting and noting with " acquarius.
11:44 am
the lyrics are "harmly and understanding, sympathy and trust abounding." what do you think? >> it was a way to give us a window in to what her husband is like, in a way that casts him as a father or someone with a more human side. i was struck the same thing when she spoke at the convention that she didn't say more and with the exception about the part of being an immigrant, karen pence could have delivered it saying donald trump is going to make america great again. >> you wanted more of personal anecdotes. >> it's what she could give us that no one else could. >> let's move off of melania and play sound. this is donald trump himself, here we are five days out poking
11:45 am
fun at himself. we've been talking about how he was disciplined and staying on script. here he was. >> we are going to win the white house. going to win it. feeling like it already. we have to be nice and cool. nice and cool. right? stay on point, donald, stay on point. [ laughter ] no side tracks, donald, nice and easy. i've been watching hillary the last few days. she's totally unhinged. we don't want any of that. she has become unhinged. >> dana, let me go back to you on that. i give him credit for that's what we have been talking about the fact that steve bannon has been monitoring his twitter feed, that he is talking about substance and rising premiums from obamacare and this fbi reopening and he's saying yeah, i'm trying to stay on point. >> he is. you want to go to him and say
11:46 am
psst, that's your outside voice not your inside voice. you're saying this out loud because this is what he has been trained to do. it took them months and months and months, like the whole campaign but finally -- in fact i have a story on right now. i call him teleprompter trump, how they've gotten him to this point. you're right, there are a lot of reasons -- one of which is that the end is in sight and he is has agreed to stay focused but another way that they have been doing it is by traveling the people who sort of -- the closest trusted advisors, whether it's steve bannon or his son-in-law jared kushner or rnc chair reince priebus and they try to make sure he doesn't go off script. one of the ways they do that, these and other people, is by literally trying to -- telling him to get it out before he gets on stage. if you have anger issues and
11:47 am
you're frustrated do it now before you do it on the the age. >> that is funny. by the way we were talking about heidi cruz, we remember the tweets and poking fun of appearances. now what a difference a couple of months makes, finally ted cruz endorsed donald trump after words were exchanged about liars and sniveling fools now senator ted cruz has spoken to the media as he's been on the stump for trump today. >> i'm here campaigning for donald trump for mike pence. i recognize some of you guys are wanting to write stories suggesting divisions among republicans. i'll make a point. i'm getting on gigantic airplane that has donald trump's name painted on the side. on monday of this week i voted for donald trump. i voted for mike pence and we're just a a few days away from election day and i'm doing everything i can to defeat
11:48 am
hillary clinton. hillary clinton would be a disaster as president and i'm doing everything i can to keep a republican majority in the senate. as mike pointed out, there are many issues front and center in this election but none is more important than the u.s. supreme court. >> susan, that final point about the supreme court is front of mind for senator cruz. do you think he's holding his nose as he walks up the stairs? >> we're suggesting there are divisions in the gop? yeah, it's us. one of the weaknesses that donald trump has compared to hillary clinton is -- are the surrogates out. s she has barack obama and michelle obama and bernie sanders and elizabeth warren and donald trump has not been able to field the a-team of republicans. we don't have george w. bush out there, we don't have mitch mcconnell throughout in a serious way, we don't have paul ryan being willing to mention his name. >> chachi, susan. >> this is a big help to hillary clinton, especially in the final
11:49 am
days when she's trying to turn out young voters, african-american voters. her surrogates put her in a better position and that is not something donald trump has. in comparison when ted cruz goes out there, we revisit the stories about what ted cruz said about donald trump and the reverse, what donald trump said about ted cruz in the past. >> you make a point but i hear the voice of kellyanne conway saying well, if they have these folks and the race is still this tight, what's going on? lay dies, thank you so much for all of that. also another big announcement today, the president and the first lady will be joining bill and hillary clinton in philadelphia on monday night for this megarally on election eve. let me bring in steven collins, our cnn politics senior reporter. we saw melania trump in one of the philadelphia suburbs. talk about impact. >> the suburbs will be crucial to this election. we know donald trump needs to put a democratic state in play if he gets to 270 votes.
11:50 am
pennsylvania has long been one of those states on his list even though it's gone democratic in the six presidential elections. the way pennsylvania sort of shakes out in a presidential election is that the democrats come out of philadelphia and allegheny county around pittsburgh with an advantage of about 500,000 votes. the republicans win almost everything else, and you have these counties where there are suburban women voters, women voters, the kind of voters donald trump is having trouble attracting his campaign. it was an effective performance. there's something effective about seeing someone who isn't a professional politician give testimony to a candidate but it's a big political assignment to think melania trump can repair the damage donald trump has done to himself with those suburban voters the access hollywood tape, with some of his rhetoric and tweets you were
