tv On the Record With Greta Van Susteren FOX News January 26, 2016 11:00pm-12:01am PST
see you in that debate on thursday night. i urge you to reconsider. fox's door, wide open. we'll see you back here tomorrow night from iowa. thanks for being with us. tonight "on the record" the fight for iowa continues. the big iowa caucus just six days away and it's anybody's race. donald trump and senator ted cruz locked in a bitter battle in the hawkeye state. senator cruz is lighting the flames and throwing gas on the fire against trump. igniting the feud over new york's values. >> i mean, hey, i lived in new york city and manhattan all my life. my
views are a little bit different than if i lived in iowa. >> they are different, like on abortion. >> would president trump ban partial birth abortion. >> i am pro-choice in every respect. >> what does trump think about iowa? >> how stupid are the people of iowa? >> donald trump, new york vales, not ours. >> you know, if my views a
little bit different than if i lived in iowa. >> okay. let's go back and look at how this bad
blood began. >> you know, i think most people know exactly what new york values are. the valuespu in new york city are socially liberal or proabortion or pro-gay marriage. focused around money and thek÷=ç media. >> concept of new york values is not that complicated to figure out. not too many years ago donald did a long view with tim russert. and in that interview he explained his views on a whole host ofma3kvví issues that were very, very different from the views he is describing and his explanation, he said, look, i'm from new york. not a lot of conservatives come out of manhattan. i'm just saying. [ laughter ] >> conservatives actually do come out of manhattan, including william f. buckley and others. just so you understand. new york is a great place. it's got great people. it's got loving people. wonderful people. when with the world trade
center came down, i saw something that no place on earth could have handled more beautifully, more humanely than new york. and we rebuilt downtown manhattan and everybody in the world watched and everybody in the world loved new york and loved new yorkers and i have to tell you, that was a very insulting statement7oç that ted made. >> the white house press secretary it to president george w. bush ari fleischer goes "on the record." good evening, ari. >> good evening. >> i'm from wisconsin we have good values just as an aside for full disclosure. is this attack by ted cruz on, quote, new york values,t's i
do think it will hurt donald trump in iowa. >> i think, first of all, i saw looking at that debate and watching, we only showed a clip of it that i thought donald trump's come back about the world trade center i thought he clberred ted cruz with that ted cruz had the unfortunate thing of p &c @&c@ p &c @&c@ donald trump was saying which was most awkward for senator ted cruz. if he had said, for instance, new york policies, not values, but policies and talked about. so laws that they have in new york, i think ted cruz would be much so. i think that would have been a more artful way to say it he could have left out the part about the media and money. this is more about ideology and positioning on issues. still in a iowa primary where the two are fighting over the evangelical vote, when ted cruz talks about qiu yorí7nl3çoiçw3t(w can't trust donald trump, particularly on social
issues where donald trump has changed his position evangelical community. trump is doing surprisingly well within the evangelical community. this is an attempt by ted and smart one to peel those vetoes trump. viewers always get a chance to be a part of the show. i will tell the viewers right now they can vote at home on twitter. answer these questions. attacking values. tweet yes or no using #greta. we will show you live twitter votes throughout the show. did you ever think this race would get to where we are right now? longer a two party nation. movement, liberal movement and donald trump led populist movement whose positions are quite flexible but neither far right nor far left.
he is not a centrist either. he is a populist who will jump to the head of whatever parade he wants to jump to. >> do you understand why he is winning? >> absolutely now i do. i have watched. this large part of rejection about washington. rejection about people like me. rejection about the establishment. rejection about all who have come before who have failed to solve the nation's problems and people are now saying if you can't do it, i'm taking a chance on somebody who is different, isn't like you, who tells it li. that's his attraction. >> all right. thank you very much. nice to see you. >> thank you, greta. >> and breaking route now, fox just announcing the lineup for thursday's last g.o.p. debate before monday's iowa caucus on the prime time stage invited donald trump is in the top seat. senator ted cruz comes in second. the rest of the lineup senator marco rubio, dr. ben carson, governor jeb bush, governor chris christie, governor john kasich and back on the prime time stage, senator rand paul is back. and in the undercard debate, carly fiorina is in the-o#giññp
position followed by governor mike huckabee, senator rick santorum and making his debate debut governor jim gilmore. and, here comes another brand new iowa poll and this one is different. different from the fox news poll of yesterday. this new one shows donald trump and senator ted cruz now neck and neck in iowa. the new quinnipiac university poll of likely republican iowa caucus goers finding donald trump in first place with 31%. senator ted cruz hot on his heels at 29%. that's a 2% difference and that is well within the margin of error. senator marco rubio the only one in double digits down 13% 18 points behind donald trump. the "on the record" political panel is here betsy and rick klein. what state are you from, i want to know your values. >> new york. >> all right. i just want to do get that straight. >> before we get to these polls and i want to find out where you are from, betsy so get ready with that answer. the elephant in the room let me ask the question and get
out of this food fight. is donald trump going to be in the debate thursday night. >> the elephant not in the room. this feels like part of the show. he has said this consistently he may not show up unless he gets a> betsy, what state are you from? i want to know your values. >> originally missouri and moved to virginiazg 8. >> i know your values. anyway, let me ask you the question before you move on. will donald trump be there thursday night. >> he will do whatever twitter followers say. 52% vote yes they want him in the debate. 48% say no. only 45,000 people have
voted. it's up in theq"!qa4e air neck horse race. honestly he hasn't made up his mind twitter overwhelmingly goes one what you or the other that's what he dual. >> can we rely on any one of these polls? now iowa quinnipiac poll for those of us who learned how to pronounce that word. yesterday though in the fox news poll, donald trump was 11 points ahead of ted cruz. now they are neck in neck. that's between yesterday and today essentially. >> who knows. we don't know what's going on and to be honest iowa caucus goers probably don't know. a lot of these folks don't decide who to vote for until a week or two before. many of them have not made up their minds. i know it's cliche but it does come down to ground game. we know ted cruz is formidable. 1800 people from outside iowa. move in, live in dorms go door to door. the polls are really confusing. if you look at the organization. it looks good for cruz. >> i talked to someone in iowa. involved with republican party politics. the party is getting calls every day from first-time
caucus goers. democrats, many of them, changing their party registration. >> to republican? >> to republican. a lot of them are saying i'm doing this for trump. i'm doing this because iweóçó; want to trump. both sides of the aisle. nobody knows who is going to show up and what the university voters look like. split among conservatives establishment that's conflicted. all of these dynamics add up to late night wraps on monday. you are right we don't know what the polls are going to show other than it's very close. if trump stopped any of the bleeding he had earlier on stop ted cruz's momentum it. >> two different polls showing different numbers two days in a row. betsy and rick if you both stick around. big name endorsement for donald trump is piling up. today trump announcing another huge endorsement by tweeting great honor, reverend jerry falwell jr. liberty university one of the great has just endorsed me. reverend falwell newest name endorsing trump. >> donald trump is a breath of fresh air in the nation where political
establishment between both parties has betrayed their constituencies time and time again. >> he is,wççó?÷+oyookj3gjt=eó/me politicaeáñ correct. he is very bold. he loves his country. and he firmly stands behind the second amendment. >> donald trump, he has talked about the issues that matter. the issues that you and i talk about. >> he cannot be bought. he is not a puppet on a string like many other candidates. >> the man i'm standing behind this year to be the next president of the united states, to help make america great again. >> the american public is finally ready to elect a candidate who is not a career politician but, rather, who has succeeded in real life. >> well, with this endorsement boost trump with evangelicals. chairman of the freedom and faith coalition goes "on the record." good evening, ralph. >> good to be with you, greta. >> ralph, when you were here last week you convinced me about how powerful and potent. you gave me the numbers how powerful the evangelical vote is in iowa. having said that donald
trump has jerry falwell jr. founder of liberty university and son of jerry falwell of course and senator ted cruz has bob vlanderplat. which one would you rather have if you are running for office in an iowa caucus? >> well, i don't think any single endorsement is going to guarantee victory for anybody. i think if you are donald trump being able to follow up the sarah palin endorse. as golden as her name is respected and honored as the falwell name. jerry falwell jr. being the president of the largest evangelical university aspires to be sort of the notre dame for evangelicals, is a big deal. but, again, the endorsements alone won't make the difference. what's really going on here, greta, is palin's endorsement really sparkeds$$jla battle for the evangelical vote, which is not only a war for iowa.
it's a war for the soul of the republican party. and it's people who are making the case that ted cruz has walked with them and worked with them for decades. and comes out of the movement. they are really establishing a test based on history and legacy and purity with those who are making a strong leader argument with trump. and the polling shows that both of those constituencies are strong in iowa and nationwide. >> well, there apparently is some pro-life groups. women's groups including susan b. anthony that have come out against donald trumpo about that? is that an effective hit on him? >> well, i think there were some good and respected names there. marjorie. beverly lahaye with concerned women for america. then again as think these endorsements --
glenn beck came in on saturday. they will matter less than who turns out. if you look at the quinnipiac poll that you cited earlier,3av who have attended caucuses before, cruz is ahead narrowly. but among first-time caucus attenders, which greta, are about a 30% of the sample, they are breaking for trump by 13 points, 38% to 25%. so if we see between 1 hundred andarç is 120,000 people go to the caucuses, advantage cruz. if it goes over 130,000, advantage trump. it's all a question of who is going to come. >> it's interesting jerry falwell jr. said this about donald trump. like mr. trump, dad would speak his mind. he is obviously a very strong advocate for donald trump. anyway, ralph, thank you. and it's going to be interesting couple days. thank you, ralph. >> you bet. thanks, greta. >> and developing right now, and just what secretary
hillary clinton does not need, more email troubles. fox news chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge is here. catherine? >> thank you, greta. what we have been able to confirm is that the fbi is going directly to the intelligence agencies and in some cases even interviewing the people who handled the classified information to make its own determination about the nature of the material that was found in emails. so the clinton campaign and department can say tj]j is some kind of interagency dispute. that reallies has no standing for the fbi. they are going right to the source because the integrity of the investigation really demands it. >> if the fbi is uncertain whether the information is classified classified or not classified and they have to go to the the intelligence agency doesn't that inneuro to the benefit of secretary clinton that it's cop fusing? you don't think so? >> no. because the way it works in very simple terms is that the agency that generates the information has ownership of the information and therefore has final say
on the classification. really it's about the fbi going to the agency and it's classified. >> and so do you think that by looking>çççç at these ema, that it's obvious the recipient here secretary clinton whether it's classified or not? >> the big question is how did this information get from a classified system to an unclassified system. what people in the intelligence community call jumping the gap, because you can't copy and paste between the classified to unclassified. the key thing here is that the content that matters. so, if you even put the content into your own words, in an unclassified system, that's a violation of the law. and also the nondisclosure agreements to make it really simple. let's say you and i had a brief on north korea and we knew where the nuclear arson was on satellite photo. if we went down to the beach and drew a diagram and we said this is where the missiles are, that diagram in the sand would be classified because of the content. not because of the format. >> catherine, thank you.
nice to see you. >> you are welcome. >> despite all the email problems secretary clinton didn't seem concerned. last night she again said she did nothing wrong. he had henry is in nittany -- ds moines, iowa. >> he had? >> you are right. chris cuomo teeddty saying you are acknowledging you made error here in terms of the email she ç1ájq no i'm not acknowledging that it's interesting because a few months ago she went on apology tour and did some interviews and said i'm sorry i take responsibility. and now she is saying i didn't really make an error. it's frankly hard to follow exactly where we are in this email story because, as you lay it out with catherine, there is still this fbi investigation pending that's a great unknown as we are just six days until the iowa caucuses here on the ground. that has been a bit of a boone for bernie sanders. i was at an event with him here today. our colleague, bret baier, asked him a question after his event with steel workers about whether he regrets
the email issue. bernie sanders said no. he doesn't have any regrets because he wants to focus on the issues. i think the point is bernie sanders doesn't really need to talk about the email issue. because the public knows about the question involving hillary clinton and whether or not she is honest and trust worthy. the big question moving forward for bernie sanders though is whether he is getting bigger crowds than hillary clinton. he is getting people more fired up. are they going to show up on monday night in the cold? i can give you two quick examples that might suggest they will. a couple nights ago, he had an event, a very small town about two hours from des moines, over 2,000 people showed up. we spoke to one person who said he drove three hours from across the border in minnesota. obviously he can't vote in the iowa caucuses but minnesota is going to be a super tuesday state. just because he want to do see bernie sanders speak. huge crowd. today at the steel workers event there was a man, you can probably see the picture, back of his head he had shaved in berne 2016. it's a unique way to feel
the berne and might be a reminder how this is a raiser then race. let's not forget the fox poll last night show's it's very tight in iowa. >> who has bigger crowds? i realize this is crossññç parties bernie sanders or donald trump. >> no doubt that donald trump has had much bigger crowds. bernie sanders when i say he has a big crowd, 2,000 people in iowa. so, donald trump, as you have seen in oklahoma and other places had 10,000 or more. obviously given population differences iowa being a much smaller state, my point is that there are over 2,000 people at one event, for example. hillary clinton to be fair to her had a fairly big event a few nights ago as well but it was 900 people. clearly bernie sanders getting more people. are they going to show up and caucus? we will see. >> head he had, thank you. this coming sunday on the eve of the iowa caucus, we are going to see have a special sunday edition "on the record" from iowa. that's this sunday january 31st, 7:00 p.m. we will take you live to
iowa. and is secretary clinton losing the battle to win the younger generation, that's next. bizarre jail break put you do all this research on the perfect car. gas mileage, horse power, torque ratios... three spreadsheets later, you finally bring home the one... then smash it into a tree. your insurance company is all too happy to raise your rates... maybe you should've done a little more research on them. for drivers with accident forgiveness, liberty mutual won't raise your rates due to your first accident. see car insurance in a whole new light. liberty mutual insurance.

depends upon who you're seeing and talking to. you know, today in oscar loose is a i spent time with about 10 high school students who are enthusiastically working for me. i see young people across the state who are doing the same. if you are new to politics. if it's the first time you've really paid attention you go oh my gosh, look at all of this, and you have to say to yourself why are they throwing all of that? well, i will tell you why, because i have been on the front lines of change and progress since i was your age. i have been fighting to give. [ applause ] >> kids and women and the people are left out and left behind a chance to make the most out of their own lives. >> and that was the young voter at last night's democratic town hall raising the issue of honesty with secretary clinton. "time" magazine as that town hall last night. he is live in des moines, iowa. sam, good evening, do you have a sense, being out in iowa. i know there is a lot of youngeruxzc#th]sx
senator bernie sanders. do you have a sense that the young people are organized and going to show up at the caucus? >> it's hard to say. i mean, a lot of young people are really frustrated. a couple of nights ago i went to this event. bernie sanders was not there. it was called shred for bernie. a punk event. a young people sitting around talking about how much they were disaffected. how much they felt that corporate interests have affected our politics. all these kind of talking points that bernie sanders repeats. they are angry, you know. and they want to see some kind of change. i think that question that you aired young man in the audience reflected that sense of enthusiasm both for bernie sanders andivñ;t5?ç[tnmf sense of disaffection with the political establishment. hillary clinton to a large extent is the face of that. >> how random is that audience? because i got the sense from watching that bernie sanders tend to do get more of the questions like what's your favorite color and secretary clinton got some people say. you know, some people say that the person didn't think
i don't think you are honest. a lot of friends say. i mean, you know, who picked this -- who was this audience? >> i think that you saw an excellent cross slice of young people. look at the polls overwhelmingly bernie sanders is popular in 30 and under, 45 and younger likes bernie sanders and inspired by his message of change. they don't know about hillary clinton's background after law school and in the early 1990s. many voters remember her as a pioneering woman who was a influence in politics before many women were. but that doesn't connect with younger voters in the same way what you saw last nights at the town hall this question is characteristic of young people across the country and in iowa. >> when you drive across area, driving the area, what's the enthusiasm level
between clinton, actually o'malley, clinton, and sanders? >> go to bernie sanders event telling you i'm living off ramen noodles and struggling to pay my debt i'm still giving bernie sanders $15 a giving everything i can because i believe in him. i don't see that same sort of feeling at hillary clinton's events. do you go to hillary clinton events and talk to folks who say, listen, a lot of my friends really like bernie sanders but i really am standing with clinton because i see her as the most electable candidate. the candidate who can most effectively push through a progressive platform. to them bernie sanders is an idealist. somebody who -- as soon as he gets into the oval office will face huge problems when he tries to corral legislation through correct me if i am wrong. >> thanka0íçw3/+ you. yes, everyone is focused on
iowa and even new hampshire. one of the really big prizes? florida. who is going to win there? who is going to win there? can donald trump do it? ♪ ♪ (cell phone rings) where are you? well the squirrels are back in the attic. mom? your dad won't call an exterminator... can i call you back, mom? he says it's personal this time... if you're a mom, you call at the worst time. it's what you do. if you want to save fifteen percent or more on car insurance, you switch to geico. it's what you do. where are you? it's very loud there. are you taking a zumba class?
>> the middle class, between the veterans and the middle class, there is no two groups of people treated worse, in my opinion. there is no)fçç two groups treated worse. we're going to take care of our veterans and we're going to take care of our middle class. you know, we built the country -- the country was really built by the middle class in terms of middle
income people. they are paying too much tax. the deal is so complicated. you have to go to the wharton school of finance to figure it out. nobody can figure it out. the tax is so complicated and, you know, you go to these tax processors and you spend money and they don't even know. you 10 different people to look at it and you get 10 different answers. we are going to simplify our tax code. we are going to reduce taxes for people and we're going to bring business back, because the corporate taxes are so high that businesses now are fleeing our country. we are right now the most -- the heaviest taxed, most highly taxed country anywhere in the world, essentially. there may be on the outskirts but probably not when you add it all up. so we are the most heavily taxed country in the world. that's why people are leaving. people are leaving. companies are leaving. jobs are being lost. jobs are totally being lost and when we do what i'm doing, people are going to come into the country. that's what we have to do. we have to make much better trade deals. we have to do this with
china, with japan, we have to get our great leaders. we have the greatest business people in the world, and we use political hacks to negotiate deals with china. >> and that was donald trump at a rally just moments ago in iowa. but iowa isn't theoh only important state. for anyone hoping to win the white house, better win the state of florida. that may hold the key to victory. and florida governor rick scott saying donald trump has been so successful because trump has america's pulse. why is florida so important? the sunshine state has voted for the presidential winner in the five past presidential elections. florida governor rick scott is here to go "on the record." good evening, sir. >> most important state florida, the bigst swing state in theo7ñç country. >> it is, everybody wants florida, wynner take all march 15th. it's going to be a national race. it's going to be fun. >> plus the fact you have three floridians in the race. senator marco rubio, jeb bush and donald trump. >> everyone wants to run.
>> you haven't endorsed. >> i haven't endorsed. i'm watching all the candidates like our voters i'm going to pick the person to get jobs going. the most important thing in we need in this country is jobs. you said donald trump has america's pulse. what do you mean by that? >> right now, he is, you know, he is talking about the things that are most important. he has a background of perceived, you know, very successful business person. and it's the most important issue. i think it's still early but is he is talking about jobs more than the others. >> what provoked you to write this. >> i get asked all the time. i wrote another op. he had back in september and october. focus on the jobs. that's how i won in 2010 and 2014. asked about weather. i added jobs. it's still the most important thing in this country. weave need somebody who is going to dramatically turn around the federal government. >> the people that aren't listed had which is anybody else which is why, of course naturally it looks like you are endorsing trump because you point out trump.
how did governoreq george bush do when he was governor. >> he did a great job. >> why aren't you talking about him being on the pults. >> here is what jeb bush did in florida. he did a great on education. marco rubio did a great job focusing on foreign policy especially what's happening in cuba. right now trump is talking about jobs. i still think it's early. >> the fact that the issue is primary for you, in your mind jobs, which is why you write this about trump and you don't take away from the other candidates. >> no. i think it's still early. i'm thinking about endorsing. i'm still waiting for who has the best plan to absolutely turn around th economy. >> how does his plan for the economy for carly fiorina, business woman? >> he is talking more about jobs. i still think it's early. we have cut taxes 50 times. weave cut 4200 regulations. i want to hear a candidate talk about what they are going to do to dramatically change the federal government. >> of course, regulations is your big thing. you don't like all the regulations? >> no. it kills jobs.
you walk into a business and say i will pay you more because taxes are higher. spend more money and deal with regulation. i want somebody who is going to cut the federal regulation in half. start cutting federal tax. biggest problem. >> hasn't almost every candidate said he or she would? >> i think they can talk way more about it i did back in june. i had them all come down and talk about jobs. talk about what they are going to do. they don't talk about it enough. >> in terms of the candidates, will there come a time that you will endorse. >> i'm look like every other voter but i'm going to follow the one, if i endorse it will be the one that talks about jobs the most that has a plan. let's have a goal like i did. i had 700,000 jobs over seven years. we did 1.5 -- a little over a million. we need 12 million jobs over the next four years. >> nice to see you. >> nice to see you. >> three fugitives on the run. wait until you see how they broke out of jail. the sheriff's office to go right here "on the record" next. plus an american tourist
there's only one egg that just tastes better. so fresh from the farm. delicious. perfect. only one egg with more great nutrition... like 4 times more vitamin d and 10 times more vitamin e. and 25% less saturated fat. only one egg good enough for my family. because why have ordinary when you can have the best. eggland's best. the only egg that gives you so much more: better taste. better nutrition.
better eggs. wild video out of capitol hill. watch as a massive wave knocks an suv right on to its side. fortunately the drivers and passengers pulled to safety as the water rushed over the truck. huge storm pounding bringing waves as high as 15 feet. chileantçç)officials are v. been warning people to stay away from beaches until the weather passes. get ready to speed read the news. an american tourist murdered in the caribbean. 399-year-old jessica coker was walking on a beach in jump out anda man with a stab her. coker's husband managed to escape unhurt. a recent convict who recently got out of prison admitted to this murder. and a false alarm for terrifying in san diego. a medical facility locked down for hours after reports of active shooter. at least three shots fired
in the.(7l'twóçhcqsement ofe building. but authorities swept the area, found no evidence that a shooting had occurred. and a nightmare in paradise, incredible drone video footage showing a moment california solidify side falls into the ocean. some residents in pacifica, california being force to do evacuate as erosion sendin their homes down a cliff. sparked by recent he will nino storms. and that's tonight's speed read. breaking right now the manhunt is intensifying for three dangerous and vicious fugitives in southern california. three men considered armed and dangerous escaped from a maximum security jail in hollywood style some of the men's crimes are terrific and horrific. they let hannibal lecter out. how did this even happen. don barnes goes "on the record." first, any information or any tips to the whereabouts of these three men or whether they are still together? >> we don't know whether they are still together but we are following every tip or lead that comes in as part of this investigation.
we have over 200 people deployed within orange county. multi-agency involvement from the federal bureau of investigation. the u.s. marshalls, local municipal pell agencies are all involved in the manhunt. >> all right. these three are the worst of the worst. they are very dangerous hannibal lecter description is horrifying. because not only did they get out of this maximum security jail but it took 16 hours, i think, before anybody noticed they were gone. >> well, the way they got out of the jail was, in fact, quite unique. they were accessed an area that is inaccessible through normal means of the jail. they accessed the mechanical area which were then able to gain access to the ventilation system on to the roof and then repelled from the roof down to the ground. to do that they had to actually breach five different security points or barriers to make that happen. they were able to gain access to that area, we believe, over a course of
time. and then to be able to get out and stay at large is the other part of it. they are in a very populated area. orange county is just south of los angeles very urban area. whether they are together or not we don't know. it would be nice it they were together to catch them at once. they are still at large and probably getting assistance from outside from either family members or associates or helping to hide them. just to give you an idea. one of them accused of dragging a man in a desert burning him with a blow torch, dousing him with bleach and severing his genitals. a description8syç of unbelievable cruelty. is there any investigation or are suggestion to see if they had any sort of help inside from the correctional officers there? >> well, our jails are managed by deputy sheriffs. with any criminal investigation, you don't discard anything. you start from scratch and let the facts take you where they need to take you.

army. and how they are going to be unleashed now is the most important thing. what's fascinating to me, greta, you are only now starting to see the attempts to take him down. seeing super pacs go on. ted cruz and his campaign super pacs try to take him down. he has consolidated his support. excited. energized and committed to supporting him if they show up to vote there is not a practical way to top it. >> it's interesting. we talked a few minutes ago about the polls and are theug> i think trump could pry those voters away to him. >> without a doubt. the number that stood out to me the most about this poll. i think it said two thirds of republican primary voters overall would be comfortable with donald trump being the nominee. that's a huge deal. because historically over the last six months or so. moderate republicans.
members of the party establishment have said well, trump -- people might be okay with him but only so many. no, two thirds like him compare that to only about half who say they would be okay with jeb bush being the nominee. not only does trump have devoted support, he has a massive pool of republican voters who would be okay with them being his guy. >> about 56% of the caucus goers last year about four years ago were evangelicals. that's a big number in iowa. that's a huge. the whole thing jerry falwell endorsement is big. senator ted cruz trying to get the evangelical vote. that's the group to get right now. >> everyone thought because of new york values or what have you or. >> you are from new york, right? >> i am. >> let me remeet rick klein is from new york. he has those values. >> exactly. full disclosure. thought that would disqualify him among evangelicals. and it hasn't happened at all. he has evangelical leaders lining up. a lot of people just like the honesty. >> that's. >> feels like the guy that will do what he says is. >> that's what jerry falwell
said he is like my father. is he a straight talker essentially. >> he calls it father historically stood with some of these moderate more edgy, less pure republican candidates. he helped resuscitate george h.w. bush from having pro-choice stanzas. brought john mccain back into the good#+kç graces. now jerry falwell's son is saying you can support trump and not sell your soul to the devil. that's a big deal to evangelical christians. >> it will not be dull. anyway. coming up, we're so lucky. i will exp how do i know i'm getting the best price on this? we'll match any competitors price. what about this? price match guarantee. and this? yep! so no monkey business, no tomfoolery? oh, we do have tom foolery, tom. staples has a price match guarantee. make low prices happen. staples make more happen.

her name is connie. >> she has been out here since 1981 and i represented her a million times when she would get arrested for sleeping in lafayette park, right? that's what they said. anyway, an old friend of mine. nice to see you. >> a million times is a big exaggeration, my firm spent a lot of time representing the right to protest. whether we agreed with a particular protest or not. that's how important that right is. and after all these years, i love seeing connie still protesting, but then last night, bad news. just three weeks later, i learned that connie has died. we weren't close.w>a feel bad. but her death does remind me of what a great nation we have. the first amendment is so strong that someone like connie can peacefully protest at the white house every day more more than 34 years. in many countries you protest the government71b=g( you sure don't get a free lawyer and you go to so i echo this makeshift sign displayed by one ofúaçm[ç
