6:01 am
1.4% in the fourth quarter. still looking at recession in japan. we will bring you all the latest developments out of the ecb president. stock markets closed in the u.s., of course, but futures are trading higher, take a look. 228 points the market closed all day in observance of president's day. a scare in sky from a flight traveling from london to new york, laser forcing pilot to turn with more than 200 passengers on board. authorities are still working to find the source of the laser. kobe bryant with final appearance in all-star game yesterday. he's retiring after 19 years in the league. two video tributes in his honor before the game began. death of supreme court justice scalia sent shock waves over dc
6:02 am
in the weekend, major issue to name replacement. peter barnes is following the latest in washington. peter, good morning to you. >> peter: politics of all this pretty simple, president obama should template the next president who might be republican, of course, appoint a replacement. the president says no way, i have the duty and the power to name replacement before i leave office and you can bet his candidate will not be a towering conservative like scalia. hot topic on the campaign trail. >> i cannot wait to stand on that stage with hillary clinton or with bernie sanders and take the case to the people, what vision of the supreme court do you want. >> the president has a responsibility to nominate a new justice and the senate has a responsibility to vote. >> scalia's can put major cases on hold as any vote that is currently tied in a lower court is upheld.
6:03 am
the existing ruling stands, some important cases that could stand for now include ones that end mandatory union dues, allow religious organizations exemptions from obamacare's mandate and challenge obama immigration policy. >> maria: all right, peter, peter barnes in dc. joining us john hart. thanks for joining the conversation. >> great to be on. >> maria: president said he will name a success or. any nomination will be dead on arrival on the senate. obviously the debate is heating up. how do you think this plays up? >> this has a potential to be a game changer in 2016, the reason is we not only have one branch on government on the ballot but since we have two branches of government that will be decided in november. it's going to have a profound affect on the republican race in particular and perhaps the democratic race as well.
6:04 am
we saw clues on the debate about it saturday night where senator cruz, rubio and bush really went after donald trump for not being the true conservative. so it's going to add a sense of gravity and weight. >> maria: i understand all of that. do you think the president will get his nominee through, is really the question? >> no, no he's not going to get the nominee through because he has zero good will among senators because of his abuse of executive orders, so senator mcconnol feels he's on solid ground to allow any person that obama nominate to go through. >> dagen: a recess appointment is possible for basically a short-term justice. it would run two years, there's some debate because president obama, because courts have shot down the recess appointments on the national labor relations
6:05 am
board, but there is some talk and i would point out that mr. obama, there's no chance he will use recess appointment. in theory, the republicans could ally with the white house and say, okay, we will template you do this and make a recess appointment for the two-year period just to make sure that business on the court moves forward. >> i think that's very likely to happen and the reason is because there's so -- there are so little trust and so much animosity between the obama administration and senate republicans and congressional republicans. >> maria: yeah. >> it would be very hard to come to that kind of agreement which would require allow of nuance and relationships. obama doesn't that relationships to do that. well, i think it's going to help
6:06 am
rubio, cruz and bush equally. it could be a very bad development for donald trump. donald trump talks about he compares himself to ronald reagan, any conservative knows that when you think about the reagan legacy, he was marinating in ideas for years before he ran for president. 16 years before 1980, 1964 gave speech. 16 years ago today donald trump is building casinos and gearing up to launch the apprentice. there's a big gap between conservative credibility with trump and the rest of the field. >> maria: that's interesting. go ahead, kevin. >> kevin: john, my question is if the republicans are not going to approve any of the nominees, why didn't they wait to see who obama nominates as oppose to coming out right away and all of a sudden just saying they're going to shoot anybody down no matter what? i feel that's going to give more
6:07 am
to the antiestablishment movement. washington as usual, so why wouldn't they wait? >> well, they didn't wait because the conclusion is a fore gone conclusion that president obama will obviously nominate somebody who is going to be far to the left of where republicans are and again, we have two branches of government on the ballot now in november, not just one. so it's a serious and grave situation and republicans felt compelled to go ou and say, no way, this is not going to happen as long as we're in charge of the senate. >> dagen: but doesn't -- ted cruz runs a risk that if the senate republicans do move ahead on a nominee, what if president obama comes up with someone who at least seems middle of the road. if they move ahead, that destroys ted cruz in this presidential election and maybe even rubio, that they couldn't stop it. >> well, you know, it wouldn't help them but i think, again,
6:08 am
you have senators who are themselves running for reelection, so i can't imagine that senators and swing states or states where president obama won are going to wanting to to a path of exposing themselves to that kind of criticism when they can just wait a few months and have someone much closer to scalia than a place holder. again, that's a tricky proposition to even establish that. >> maria: really an interesting dynamic here. we will see you soon, john hart. japan bargain hunting was the name of the game, beating down banking sending the nikkei average to biggest gains since september recovering much to have 11% decline with 7% rally overnight. nikkei average largely lower for the year. this is after the latest data showed that japan's economy continues to shrink. weak consumer spending.
6:09 am
fourth contraction in seven quarters for japan's economy. we continue talking about this. the japanese economy remains in recession despite -- >> kevin: yeah, this is showing what's happening across the global. if you look at export numbers, they did not do well at all. japan is the third-largest economy in the world right now and they're an export economy. you're seeing -- 7% up in one session. they've been getting beaten up. you're seeing the wild big moves . we've seen it time and time again in ifer trading session this year and it's going to continue to happen because the market is trading on macro news and not on company news. >> maria: they keep comparing japanese post, the biggest company in japan that went public-year. michael, do you agree in that comparison when that turns they
6:10 am
think the japanese market will turn? >> michael: i don't think it's quite that easy, maria. a few things to look at japan is up 7% on the good news that gdp is down. if you dig into those numbers, it's really as if the policy makers are shooting themselves in the foot. the yen goes the other direction. the fact is it had been weak and was hurting consumption. japanese were not spending money on consumption here. what do you do now? are you going to cut rates further, what's the yen going to do? they were chasing their own tail here. it's up that we are up 7%. i will say for technicians out there, bounce of key long-term level. technical analysis working. but in terms of what the economy is doing, i really think that in japan policy makers are not being consistent.
6:11 am
>> kevin: they have threw even at the economy, they are buying stocks, everything across the board and it's just not working. >> maria: an issue that we talked about in the past, dagen and that is people do not -- are losing confidence. the central banks around the world have any ammunition left. >> dagen: when you lose that confidence, you can't win it back. the benefit for the u.s. is great. the rest of the world looks lousy and then lower interest rates here in the united states. soak it up while you can. >> michael: that's been a dragging data set. it's really been bad. a little better. >> dagen: gas and autos were up. >> maria: that's not bad.
6:12 am
>> michael: maybe there's something in that, now what? >> kevin: you know what the worst part is markets are going up in converse to what's happening with currencies, so if the currencies are going to go down more, the market will go up. currencies should not dictate market action. >> maria: but they have been because of the strength of the dollar. >> kevin: what's nominated in dollars, oil, copper, you name it. when those currencies are actually strengthening, you know, thals going to impact all of those and trickle into a merging market. you name it. >> maria: long way they wanted it to go. >> michael: the fact boj cut in negative and yen rallies, it shows how much dysfunction there is. and that's a problem. >> dagen: our markets are closed and people are working today and people are trading overseas, what's the competition doing?

7:03 am
democrats would love more to opposite both in ideology and in age. the republicans love nothing more than to replace him with a similar thinking person a year from now. there are couple of unusual constitutional quirks in here. the president, of course, what is known as recess power and appoint someone to the supreme court when the senate is in recess that is not a permanent appointment but a appointment that exists until next senate tomorrow. so more or less, three and a half to four years. guess what, senate is in recess as we spook. but the president is not indicated in inclination to do that but sited to nominate somebody and to try to put that person through the senate. under the senate rules, as established by harry reid and the democrats, last time they
7:04 am
controlled the senate, the senate schedule is controlled by one person. the majority leader in this case, mitch mcconnell that is not even subject to a vote in the senate. senator mcconnell is said we will not consider any nominees during president obama's term in office. >> okay. he could decide that an make the schedule such that there are no hearings in this regard, and no time to actually look at it. >> they can do that. the response, of course, would be political uproar in the part of the democrat answer political pressure on republican senators. particularly those running for president. and would be up to them to statistic to their guns or to however they see the. you know, look president could surprise people and come up with some consensus nominee that would draw all of democrats and half of the republicans. i can't think of who that would be off the top of my head. but he might actually -- try to do that.
7:05 am
if he nominates somebody that is literally justice scalia's opposite number in 40s or 50s you either will see no battle at all mcconnell won't let it happen or make a fight over robert work seem look child's play. >> when you think about who justice scalia would have wanted. i know that you were good friends with justice scalia so my condolence is to you, judge. >> i appreciate you saying that thank you, we spent many, many, many hour it is together in formal occasions in informal occasions i interviewed him in front of large groups. we vacation together, many meals together. went to mass together. he was a fierce -- fierce traditionalist roman catholic who likes old fashion with a priest faces the alter, and we talked about all of these things many times. i'm sure he would want someone to replace him like -- like he is. he had no wish to leave office
7:06 am
while a democrat was president. but made sure interceded. >> i agree with you a proud italian american i know or or there are a number of italian groups that hon mothered him at the time i had a privilege of meeting him as well, and interviewing him. but he was actually your friend. so you know chris wallace on fox news sunday actually did an interview with him had couple of year ago and asked him had. i said this was unbelievable. who would you want to replace you, of course, they were not talking about death. but in the event that he were to step down, he said, obviously, his answer toes chris was, absolutely i don't someone in there who is going to undo everything i've done. i don't think i need to it will you that, do i? he was so blunt about it. but we know what justice gal would have wanted. >> i don't think i'm speaking heated of school when i tell you it was one of his greatest fears as that all of the work he did could be undone, by a succeed successor and these are thoughts going through people in the white house as we speak when they try and --
7:07 am
what he would have wanted. wonlder if gop will look, they're, you know, the group of know by not even, you know, looking at a nominee who the president may put forth. so there is a plans to walk on the part of the campaigns as well as gop, right? >> yeah, there is. mitch mcconnell doesn't let this cool to the floor then whoever the republican nominee for president is, is going to have to defend mcconnell's position and that maybe a defense that that candidate does not want it headache. so this really -- so many variations here as to how this can play out it's almost impossible to predict but those who loved hmm are sad and crushed by this as you're welcome imagine. >> of course, of course what a special man he was. let me ask you how this takes
7:08 am
place you've heard from hillary and bernie and said president has a responsibility and done that and heard from gop xaints. so this has become an election issue and campaign issue. how does this change election do you think, judge? >> well marco rube yon and ted cruz have been arguing i think quite effectively that this is -- four days ago. we're one vote away from keeping bare arms. one vote away from abortion on demand. but those are now legitimate, valid mainstream arguments to make as is the opposite of those eargts or argument who is thes right of bare arms to go away and abortion on demand to be lawful. obviously, we live in an age in which foreign forces want to harm us, and war on terrorism main issue. serious, serious economic issues and you can speak to that far better than had i. but we now have this new issue
7:09 am
that is not just one vote away, it is were literally one vote away, and here's the type of person that i would appoint. here's the human being that i would appoint very well you can see some nonpolitical candidate, some named potential nominee, being a major -- being vetted and being a major issue in this campaign of the republicans want to go that far. because republicans will have to demonstrate that they're not just obstructionists but trying to save the constitution from a president who has very little fidelity to it. >> real quick judge can you go through real quick some of the cases that are in front of the supreme court u right now, because that's going to be the argument on the left to baskly say look we need business to keep moving forward. there are important cases right now in front of the supreme court. >> there's a major affirmative action case before the -- before the supreme court.
7:10 am
immigration issue where the lower state has had executive order. there's a major abortion case where case has upheld a rather restrictive abortion law in texas. there's a major epa case before the court with supreme court four days ago did the unthinkable which is reach down into a lower court and order it to stay in opinion of the epa that was four to five. so, obviously, that would have been a tie had justice scalia not participated and that would have -- would not have had effect. if people are worried about -- about motions made to the court to change recent decisions because antonin scalia is not on the court that won't happen. court will not undermine its own credibility by change something that it did last week. but as for those cases that court has heard oral agent on,
7:11 am
and has not yet ruled on, there are only 8 humans that can weigh in on that. >> great insight judge thank you so much. judge andrew napolitano there. japan surging overis night. bargain hundred rei investors piled into beaten down stocks like bank and autos in japan. sending ek average up to biggest gain since suspect. recovering mostly all of the 11% therein last week with a 7% rally overnight. this is latest data that shows japan economy shrinking by 1.4%. this is fourth contraction in seven quarters for japan's economy. coming up donald trump walking back krit si. levels at former president george w. bushes at saturday's debate but would that open the door for another bush in the white house? that's next, back in a minute.

[applause] he's had the gal -- >> world trade center came down -- go after my mother. >> hold on. >> that's just a piece of this. meanwhile texas senator ted cruz in florida slammed each other e over immigration and also we should say bush went after trump. it was something else. discussions about women minorities. eminent domain things he said about john mccain in the past
7:17 am
and came out swinging at trump heavily on saturday night. >> my attack away was the boos for donald trump. i don't know if this was such a south carolina audience, but there was a lot of booing. when he said the world trade center came down on to your father's watch people it not like that. nobody blames george w. bush for trade towers coming down. >> he did and crossed a bridge and immediately burned it. there was a lot of discussion about how ticket were handed out by the gop that was a lot of people within the republican party establishment. so it was clearly not stacked with donald trump fans. but it's how yo handle it. booing did start immediately but he quickly got red in the face and furious and it shows you under pressure how he acts when audience is not to him and sing his praises. i mentioned move --
7:18 am
weapon of mass destruction he lied about what weapons of mass destruction that's the title of a editorial in "the wall street journal," and they say trump's willingness to indulge in crack pot conspiracy theory shows that the tremendous risk that republicans would be taking if they make him their standard bearer. >> what do they do if votes are there? i understand what republicans are saying, but look where he is at 41% or something. ivelgt in south carolina let's be clear here this is minority volt in south carolina matters more now to than it has. not so much in iowa or new hampshire. but does that hurt trump? >> look at how george w. bush handled 9/11. he did it well across the board. lieders from rudolf giuliani to everybody else he performed well when we needed him the most. everybody knows that. so -- >> smeesh the bush family but instead he goes over territory

7:20 am
debate with that and on point and he didn't politicize a lot of issues. he actually hit home with the facts. so he could have been a big driving force on the stage. >> make or break for carson. >> yeah, it's already broke. ed said if trump wins south carolina there's no stopping him, he's the nominee.rd on true said they were bludgeoned. >> let's think about this, though. >> watch these debates, republicans watch debates. >> how about independents who have maid their mind up. >> not ?k. independents don't vote in south carolina but republican primary. so that's why -- still to come five time nba champ and kobe bryant playing in last all star game of his career leaving big shoes to film. jared max with all of the sports

7:34 am
that is a significant issue. one of the problems is, i don't think the american people realize the significance of it. you understand a bomb going off or someone being shot, it's hard to visualize a cyber attack but it could be devastating. it can bring down all the appliance and defense system and can stop the power grid. all of these are real threats and has to be faced up and has been put into by the government. i wish it was part of the political debate so american people realize why we should be taking certain steps it's not just the invasion of the privacy. right away people think it is on the internet or be spying on them this is a real threat coming from terror groups and countries from iran, russia, china in particular. as far as the chemical weapons,
7:35 am
it's certainly accurate, we have been very concerned about the use of chemical weapons. as the director said they have already used them in syria and know they are trying to obtain more and if they ever got here in the united states it would be devastating. >> you said the air strikes in syria now if their 18th or 19th month have been infectedive. can you characterize where we are in terms of the fight against isis? >> i would say it's a stand off and isis may be gaining. they can show all the top officials in isis taken out and controlled. they still control a large land mass and building recruits all over the world. there are thousands of volunteers around the world. these their trained terrorists that can come back. the reality is we are not winning that war and war has to be done. >> congressman, you said one of them that is a threat in cyber
7:36 am
security wise is north korea as well along with china. what's the best way to combat these cyber security threats. you mentioned it was more part of the debate going on with the candidates. what's the best way to combat these threats? >> one thing we have done recently is to get the private sector to be willing to cooperate with the government by assuring them that they won't be sued. they are concerned if they do cooperate or if they say something suspicious and say they will be hacked and someone feels their rights are being violated, and the company can be sued, it's bringing in the private sector to have them be more cooperative and assure them that they will not have to run the risk of going out of business because of lawsuits. the other is increased technology and work close with our allies and the power of
7:37 am
retaliation and let these countries know that if they do this to us, we can do that to their systems as well. >> do you think it can be solved without spending more on homeland security stp. >> no, more has to be spent on defense system it has deteriorated over the last several years as far as personnel, as far as naval carriers. the military has been almost hollowed out. as far as homeland security, i'm concerned a that this year's budget, the president dramatically cut, assistance given for homeland security. this is not some federal hand out. when you will have police or new york or los angeles doing it. they will carry out a responsibility of protecting us against a foreign enemy and not to be giving them the funding they need to do that is really responsible at a time when isis
7:38 am
is such a threat. in new york alone there's more than a thousand police officers working full-time on counter terrorism and intelligence. that's a federal responsibility the nypd is doing because federal government can't do it all and it's essential it's just like last june or july you have five isis operatives arrested in new york and believe that was a planned fourth of july attack. to cut back on that in anyway can be catastrophic. >> that's why conservatives are so concerned about this budget because the spending is locked in >> that goes to october 1st. the president just admitted that started to october 1st of the year and going in to 2017. some of these 40%-50% cuts in key areas of homeland security. >> thank you so much. >> thank you. >> we will see you soon. up next, kanye west at it again

think they if you tax the rich they will have to sit there and take it but when people are taxed this way, hay respond. they change their the behavior so you will not get what you are thinking up. you pile that on top of a budget situation in the u.s. and you have big problems. i don't think young people understand how much they are on the look for. >> we should say those people making $250,000 or more. it sounds like you are taxing warren but fete. -- buffe the tt. people should understand what 92% of their salary means. >> even city taxes. think about new york if you are making $250,000 and your federal government is taking -- >> you are working for the government. >> yes, it just just incense tpaoeus you from from working. i want to get on the government. give me free stuff. i love it.
7:47 am
the problem is this is going to hit the middle class the most. the rich are going to be fine. they are going to be gone. >> they will not hire any workers. >> it this also touch small business. when you are talking about the rich, what you think they will do with that the remaining 8%. you think they will use that 8% to pay worker? how can you tax the rich and create more jobs? how will this add 16 million jobs. can you explain that to me? he is talking about tacking investment to the hills. those two things don't go together. he is talking about is short-term redistributing what we have but totally tack sacrificing the long term. this is mortgageing the future. >> but if they believed in his vision they only need to look at europe.
7:48 am
europe has a 20% value added tax on all that hits everybody it hits the middle class t lower class and millionaires and billionaires choose not to live there for the most part so they their not your tax space in europe it's everybody is your taxpayer. that's what's going to turn -- >> it's the financial system. what are the impacts of that? if you tax it, i think you shut it down and jobs are going nowhere. so, look at sweden is the transaction tax. look at what happened in sweden. trading business just left. you go trade your instrument somewhere else. they didn't raise any revenue and hurt their economy. a total lose/lose situation there. >> bernie is getting all these voters saying they will get everything for free. if hillary says that's impossible, boos, she's a tool of the rich. republican side may face that side in the general election. how you fight that battle? >> she's trying to do that now,
7:49 am
if you look at her recent speeches she the saying, "we want job growth" we want a growing economy and you can't pay for everything you are talking about. it's a tough sell for her. she inheriteds one big positive and that's her husband's economic record in the 1990s. whether he deserves the credit or not. she can build on that. >> he deserves the credit, myish is the fact that she's not mimicking herer husband's economic plan. she's running more to the west. >> right. i think it's been a strategy right now. if you want to vote for the rich vote for bernie sanders. >> understand who you are talking about when you talk about the rich at $200,000 in income. that's some thing different with somebody for $40 billion-dollars. people need to understand that
7:50 am
when you climb the ladder and get to that number, this is a war of success. he doesn't want people to be successful in this country. he wants the government to run our lives. >> he wants everything the same. that's another thing that my millennials need to understand on what is socialism. everybody is the same. it doesn't matter that you are michael jordon and this tall, no, everybody is the same. everybody will get the same. maybe you want to talk about that. if you cut assets that insensitives people which is harder for the government and that will -- that is better for the government and will collect more taxes. >> you cannot point anything in the last eight years that have been pro-growth. that's the problem we have with sanders. that's the problem we have with clinton's plan as well. so much of the tax increases are baseded on investment and work.
7:51 am
that's what you don't want to be doing in a slow growth economy. if we want to get out you not do what sanders clinton are doing right now. >> thank you so much. we will be right back. stay with us. ♪ he tried to seize private property to line his own pockets. four bankruptcies... and small businesses screwed over. poll after poll shows him losing... to hillary clinton. if trump wins, conservatives lose. right to rise usa is responsible for the content of this message.

welcome back. it is monday february 15th, president's day. markets are closed and so are our competition. you want news on our money, life, family, future you are in the right place. to the top story, the nation mourning the death of supreme court justice. the battlele over his fate on the high court heating up from capitol hill to the campaign trail. >> i plan to fulfill my constitutional responsibilities. >> were not moving forward until after this election. >> this should be a decision for the people.
8:01 am
>> he was found dead saturday in texas. a local judge said he died of natural causes at the age of 79. maria will talk with alberto gonzalez. former president george w.bush will make his first campaign appearance for his brother jeb. the two will appear at rally days before voters hit the polls in the the state's primary on saturday. here's what jeb just said about the move on fox and friends. >> i think he's going to be there to show his support for me and why going forward i would be the best commander in chief. >> turning to the global market, u.s. markets are closed but in asia the shanghai composite opened for the first time in a week. look at japan, the nikkei surging 7% overnight shaking off weak economic news.
8:02 am
showing that the japanese economy contracted 1.4% in the fourth quarter. european markets following japan markets higher. you see gains across the board there 3.5 in the in france. testify stock market closed in the u.s. but futures trading is open and we've got gains across the board. >> our top story now chief justice passed away at 79 years old over the weekend sending shock waves along capitol hill. >> the political battle has joined. republicans say president obama should let the next president who might be a republican appoint the replacement for him. the president said no way. i have the duty and the power to name his replacement before i leave this the office and you
8:03 am
can bet his candidate won't be a ko*pb conservative. it's a hot topic on the campaign trail. >> i cannot wait to stand on that stage with hillary clinton or with bernie sanders and take the case to the people. what vision of the supreme court do you want? >> the president has a responsibility to nominate a new justice and the senate has a responsibility to vote. >> his death could put a number of pending high court case on hold as any vote tide 4- -- tied 4 this-4 remains the rulings of a lower court. pit could end mandatory union due, exceptions from obama care and challenge his immigration policy. good to have you on the program. thank you for joining us. >> good morning. >> we know we are both on the
8:04 am
the sides of this. how do you think that plays at stp. >> that's hard to predict. under the constitution, the president has power to fill vacancies when they occur. there's no question in my mind if the situation was rereversed and if we had a republican that the president of the united states would make a nomination of a qualified individual. that is his job. after doing his job then we move to the senate to do his job which is to decide whether or not the president's nomination should be confirmed on the supreme court. based on that nominee's ideology, experience and integrity and obviously, the art of judging should not be political but the selection of a judge often comes very political and i think that's what we are witnessing right now. >> do you think the president would want to nominate someone over someone that would be largely simple poll -- symbolic
8:05 am
to put it in the senate's hands and knowing they will get in the way and stop the process or do you think the president will nominate a conservative? >> i doubt seriously he will nominate someone who is less conservative or as conservative as the justice. i think the president has a view of the supreme court that perhaps george w.bush but in terms of what he will do given the make up of the senate, given the calendar. one we consider when i worked in the white house was -- who who controlled the senate, who was the chairman of the judiciary committee, was it a swing seat which would ensure a tough confirmation. these are serious considerations and appropriate considerations for the president in deciding who he should nominate for the seat. >> any idea who you think would be viable choice? >> well, the names being
8:06 am
mentioned now given the fact that it was ten years ago since was working in government, were not names that were on our list of short listers. i suspect, however, the names being banned about, at least ones that i've seen in the media are people qualified by experience but have a different ideology by the rules accord. i'm not they are on my list but we have a can different president today than we had before. >> mr. attorney general you wrote a piece in "usa today" said you do not think that the president is going to wait to replace the justice. you think this will happen in fairly quick form? >> he is not required to wait. >> why would he, yeah. >> he has the power and responsibility to fill a vacancy on that court.
8:07 am
i fully expect president obama to exercise that authority and to make an appointment and it will be in the hands of the senate who they can control their own calendar and can decide whether north they want to take action on this nomination. so, they control their own calendar. at the end of the day they can say, no, we will not take that up in this session. then just threat clock run out because obviously, the election is in november and you will have a new commander in chief a month and a half later. >> that's correct. that new president even if it's a dominate may want a different nomination. that is the calculation that the senate will have to dece. ift habeco s polical and frustrates the american people. the republicans may lose control of the senate. that's a very important situation and that will also get the calculation for republicans
8:08 am
in the senate. >> what are the ramifications of mitch mcconle org organizing the schedule that they don't hear it. is it a pr issue for the senate republicans or is it bigger than that? fall -- a political foul -- fall out. the republicans will make it for them. when i was in the white house in a justice we had a democrats locking a president bush's nominees to the court t maybe not the supreme court but certainly the lower court. the confirmation process can become very political in terms of additional fallout, it will have a decision by the supreme court where you may have decisions which will leave the court decision continue to be binding. it would be oh binding on that
8:09 am
particular circuit but you would have that situation so there will be a fall out if the vacancy were not filled before the end of this term. >> do you think this will shape the election in anyway? for example, if people would like to see, and you know that justice said, he's act hi told chris wallace a couple years ago, if i'm not here i would want someone to replace me who will not come if and undo all the things i've put in place. do i have to even tell you that? for those to make sure that seat is replaced by someone of this ilk, do you think that will shape what the candidates are doing on the campaign trail? >> absolutely. other than putting young men and woman in to harm's way and going to war, the decision by the president of the united states who put on the supreme court is problem any most important one that person has to make.
8:10 am
it represents the president's most lasting the legacy. that person's decision on the bench following a lifetime will out last the president's term and the president's policies. this is a huge decision by the president of the united states. >> does this play to senator cruz's strengths. we know how conservative he is. does it play against donald trump is what i'm asking. so, what i would like to know is who are my advisors. who will be advising senate cruz and advising trump. they have a role toll play in that as well. the other thing that i would like to mention is, i don't know what is important to them. i don't know what this values are at the end of the day. you may think i want a conservative and willing to take on the titanic confirmation battle but there may be other things you need from that senate and you may not want to have a titan tick confirmation battle and may that it's important to con fir compromise on who you
8:11 am
send to the senate. >> you will want to pick your battles, thanks so much. >> former new york governor elliot spit stk*e r back in the headlines. >> then donald trump having some hard criticism. more on that pal out next. . this just got interesting. why pause to take a pill? or stop to find a bathroom? cialis for daily use is approved to treat both erectile dysfunction and the urinary symptoms of bph, like needing to go frequently, day or night. tell your doctor about all your medical conditions and medicines, and ask if your heart is healthy enough for sex

8:31 am
one of the most significant decisions was to go to war. donald trump is very vocal about that. so this is nothing new. maria: you made the point earlier that basically this sounds like it is right out of the move on board website. dagen: opinion piece in "the wall street journal." it points to the reporter more than 600 pages concluded it was the cia's independent judgment on a work of medicine to iraq in those claims on weapons of mass destruction. the journal goes as far as to say to indulge in the most out left-wing conspiracy theory shows a tremendous risk for republicans to taken if they make in their standard. maria: what he think about that? >> i think it is interesting to see that donald trump is getting excuse to bet on trim for a lot of his belief that are either not substantiated or they are ready to here is a think it is
8:32 am
interesting with all due respect to omar rossello is a registered democrat and a hillary clinton supporter would support something like that. >> i worked at the clinton white house i can give you more perspective. i worked in the clinton white house spirit i worked on capitol hill and a business professor. >> let me finish. >> now, you went down my background so now you've got to deal with me. everyone has a consensus that this was a mistake. this is not something you're saying he doesn't stand by. there is a content as this was a mistake. it has not been substantiated. >> correct -- >> next time you want a break on my resume committee will understand i'm not new to this, bill. donald trump stansberry, very
8:33 am
firmly in place if you want to campaign with george w. bush then you have to be accountable and everyone agrees that iraq was a mistake. >> let me just finish. i wanted to say that one of the issues that i have a omarosato e busy is not laid out a plan for issues like black lives matter, issues we accomplished. >> how did we go from iraq to black lives matter? stay focused, to merit. >> i'm just stating my position like you did. maria: this is all fair game. go ahead. >> my issue is i like donald trump in i want to like him more. the issue is idle or that he has substantiated a lot of the claims that he is made and hasn't laid out in a position other than black lives matter, it inner city issues that the economy other than the five
8:34 am
points he puts on his website. >> it seems like it's also trying to come out and talk about september 11th and how there's a bunch of muslims applauding the twin towers came down and then he brought this out. it seems like he is politicizing this and using it as mere background for that. >> let's face it, nobody thinks it's george w. bush. >> my name is omarosa. let's talk about iraq in donald trump's position. >> tamara, tamara. >> boo, if you want to combine with big boobs, you deal with it. maria: why are you bringing that tamara's boobs? >> you're a democrat menu support hillary clinton. if you want to get personal, we can get personal. >> you are talking about my
8:35 am
boobs, this is how i was born. >> i'm sorry. i should have called you a boo. >> let's focus on donald trump. maria: can we talk about donald trump? tamara made a point. >> we are all over the place here. tree into donald trump does not have substance on important issues like likewise matter. >> i completely disagree with that. of course he does. but tamara wants to focus on five points. donald trump has made it very, very clear. social justice issues are something he will address. he will have to be the president of the entire country, not just likewise matter, immigration has been vocal on some economic issues which are resonating with voters. i take issue with that.
8:36 am
the voters who are clearly supporting him since he is substantially high in the polls would disagree with that. >> hillary clinton or donald trump for you? >> pardon me? there's no secret that i worked in the clinton white house. but in sitting here because i believe donald trump is the best choice to be calm the republican nominee for president and become president of the united states. maria: but he worked in the clinton white house. you are not going to vote for hillary? >> obviously i am going to support donald trump because in 1997-98 i worked in the clinton administration, which by happenstance for the time we were going through an impeachment because of bill clinton's behavior. of course i'm going to support donald trump. >> previously supported hillary clinton. i want to know when you change sides because i actually like donald trump. >> there is no question in before donald trump entered this race that i would have hillary. if he took the chance to do your research, you would know that.
8:37 am
