and you're watching cnn. happy friday. i'm brooke baldwin. let's get to it. four days, four, from the new hampshire primary. two breaking out with new attitudes. donald trump striking a somewhat softer tone while a tougher hillary clinton is fighting back. just days after trump accused cruz of stealing his caucus win in iowa, the republican billionaire had this exchange with anderson cooper about senator cruz. >> look, i'm into new hampshire now. it's just one of those things. it was sort of a lot of strange things. you know, i like ben carson very much. he got pretty roughed up frankly. although it affected me maybe more than ben. but i'm so much -- because i've been here now for two days.
i'm so much into this, into new hampshire, that i just -- i don't care about that. >> and for the democrats, clinton call the out bernie sanders when he suggested during their debate last night that rich donor coss could rich donor coss coul buy her political favor. >> i don't think these attacks are worthy of you and enough is enough. if you've got something to say, say it directly. i think it's time to end the very artful smear you and your campaign have been carrying out in recent weeks and let's talk -- let's talk about the issues. >> all right, let's kick off this hour with our cnn political director david chalian. in exetor, new hampshire.
>> both donald trump and hillary clinton is looking at the challenges they've got ahead of themselves leading into tuesday's primary. donald trump, after coming in second place in iowa, knows a victory here in new hampshire is critical to making sure that he is not seen as a completely pierced balloon after the year of riding high in the polls. that's why he's dropped all that complaining about ted cruz and the iowa caucuses and the results into -- i'm focused heard in new hampshire and i'm going to work for every vote. on the democratic side, you see the same thing. you see hillary clinton who is clearly not wanting to take the what she calls insinuated attacks from bernie sanders laying down. she wants to fight back on that notion that she is somehow tied to wall street in a way that affects her policies. >> let me come back to that behind in the polls bit in a moment. i want to share these polls. looking at just new hampshire. and we have this national poll from quinnipiac university, if
you can hear me through the applause. both taken after the iowa caucuses. the republicans here. you see, you know, trump obviously with the biggest number but plenty close behind, you know, in the teens, rubio, cruz, kasich. your thoughts on that. >> that's right. i mean, rubio's in a new position in number two and trump wants to secure that double digit lead over him. rubio is now going to be feeling more scrutiny, more heat from a lot of the other candidates because he is now that establishment lane candidate that has skyrocketed to the top of that pack in that number two slot and you know that new hampshire is where that battle for the establishment lane is taking place. and nationally, brooke, if you look at the quinnipiac university poll on the republican side, you see the same thing in terms of it being a three-man race. we are down to a donald trump, ted cruz, marco rubio race now. unless somebody like bush or kasich up-ends rubio in new hampshire, think we'll see that
three-man race going forward for quite some time. >> let's talk quickly about the dems. when you look at the polls for the democrats. what are you seeing there? >> well, listen, our cnn/wnmr/unh new hampshire poll, it's not what these people behind me are applauding but they might as well because it shows bernie sanders has a two-one advantage over hillary clinton in new hampshire and bernie sanders is making sure to maintain that lead as best he can. nationally, there's a new quinnipiac poll out and it shows a much closer race. that one right now looks like an outlier. >> david chalian, thank you. while sanders again depending on the poll, quinnipiac looks closer. the one we just showed, two to one. we need more polls. that's precisely the point from david chalian. cnn poll of polls shows clinton has a significant lead over sanders. these polls were taken before the iowa caucuses when martin o'malley, by the way, was still
running. now, the author of this book, hillary clinton, a woman in charge. cnn political commentator carl bernstein. also with me cnn author himself bob beckle who managed walter mondale's presidential campaign. gentlemen, nice to see you. mr. beckle, finally i get to see you in person. nice to see you. >> thanks for mentioning the mondale campaign, nice of you. >> you got it, let's begin here with the money. i want to begin with you. she's been hit, you know, obviously by the money and the superpac money from wall street. so she referred to it last night as an artful smear. she says i really don't think these kinds of attacks by insinuation are worthy of you, she said to sanders. if you have something to say, say it directly. we know that she called off an event tonight in boston related to baen capital. maybe they're getting more hit from that, hit from the sanders campaign. do you think that was a strong response? >> yes, i think it was a strong
response. bernie's been raising all this money at $25 chunks. hillary's gone through wall street pretty well. but here's a big problem for sanders. the next four days is the longest four days in presidential politics. i've done six of them up there. >> tell me why. >> well, because things change so much. and the polls change. it is the hardest state in the world to poll. there's no way bernie sanders is going to beat her by 30 points. i think she's going to come in under 10. if that's the case, what's the expectation for bernie, to win big, right? next door neighbor. i don't think he's going to win that big. >> carl what do you think? >> we need fewer polls. that's the first. >> they can be so confusing. >> what we're seeing is that hillary clinton could be a very capable president but she is a terribly flawed candidate. who has ethical baggage that is costing her terrifically. the gop is exploiting it. and in bernie sanders, we have a
candidate who is going to begin a real movement. if there is a potential, i would have never believed this a few weeks ago for him to go on and win the nomination and he's hit on the weaknesses that have to do with character issues and trust. >> there's the challenge about who's a progressive, then they got into definition of establishment. one of the issues where bernie sanders has really drawn the line in the political sand has to do with where clinton was in that iraq war vote. this is another response. roll it. >> back in 2002, when we both looked at the same evidence about the wisdom of the war in iraq, one of us voted the right way and one of us didn't. >> a vote in 2002 is not a plan to defeat isis. we have to look at the threats
we face right now and we have to be prepared to take them on and defeat them. >> bob, bringing up this is now isis. strong answer? >> any time you get on foreign policy, she wants those questions because that's where she's strong. keep in mind hillary clinton from the time she's gotten into public life has been on the defensive as a politician. she's been burned and beat up and scarred and people wonder why she's so defensive. good reason. because she's been on the defense for a long, long time. i think bernie's got a niche in a populous year. there's been populism around for a long time. going back to william jennings bryant. so i don't think this is something that's new. he and trump have taken advantage of it but both of them are polling higher than, in fact, they've got as a base. >> carl, let me bring you in. talk flint, michigan. this is one of the additional debates coming up in flint in march march. we've learned hillary clinton will be going to flint sunday.
sh she is the one who is part of connecting the mayor of flint with president obama. this has been one of her issues. what will she be able to do in flint that she can use to her advantage come tuesday? and beyond? >> i would hope this rises above this political race. that both she and sanders have said the right thing. sanders has said this governor should leave office. he ought to be recalled. this is a terrible thing that's happened and shouldn't be exploited in a presidential campaign. they're both on the same wavelength, sanders and hillary on this, and let's talk about the real questions and the real question that's raised, that chuck todd did last night, is this question of the transcripts. of hillary clinton's meetings and speeches before these groups. it's not going to go away. she's going to need to produce them. or she is in terrible trouble if she can't. >> bob, do you think that will hurt her? >> nah, you mean the money from wall street? >> the talking, the being
paid -- >> transcripts. >> $675,000 for three speech, now, they can get my vote for that. but look, the fact of the matter is, everybody raises a lot of money. bernie's unique. he can raise it in small dosings. but another thing about flint, i don't want to break everybody's bubble, is the presidential move on her part to go there, but also a lot of poor people being afflicted in flint, a lot of minorities, i think she's looking ahead to south carolina. >> we have an entire segment dedicated to that. >> i didn't mean to blow that. >> i appreciate the tease. bernie sanders is not faring well when it comes to the african american vote and that has to be worrying his vote wcan it comes to south carolina. coming up next, donald trump canceling his event in new hampshire because of the snow, the weather there. but, jeb bush giving him a taste of his own medicine. the trolling on twitter, the back and forth. that's coming up next.
plus, he has everything riding on new hampshire. but john kasich refuses to sling mud. cnn just sat down with him. hear which big-time celebrity joining him on the trail tonight. and a story i really want you to see. police officers responding to a shooting scene in chicago. they find an 11-month-old baby, 11 months old, shot in a driveby. what they do next breaks the rules but it's one of the most heroic things you will ever hear. stand by for that. but the omega-3s in fish oil differ from megared krill oil. unlike fish oil, megared is easily absorbed by your body. megared. the difference is easy to absorb.

that just tastes better. with more vitamins. and less saturated fat. only eggland's best. better taste. better nutrition. better eggs. you're watching cnn, i'm brooke baldwin. shootings, they are so common in the city of chicago most often we don't report them. but there was nothing common about a shooting when officers arrived at the scene of a quintuple shooting. the victim, 11 months old. police protocol calls for police to wait for an ambulance. as cnn's ryan young report, the officers broke department policy and by doing so probably saved this child's life. >> it was very chaotic. when we first arrived, had to be
about 100 people out on the street screaming, yelling. people crying. >> a child was shot. >> we had a person shot over here. the neighborhood going crazy. the woman ran up to us with the baby shouting this baby has been shot. >> how old is it? >> between 1 and 2 years old. >> obviously, it's got to hit you in the heart. >> it does. at this point, we examine the baby. we found it to have been shot. it's an unreal feeling. borderline helplessness. >> the officers broke department policy, opting to rush the 11-month-old to the hospital instead of waiting for an ambulance. >> when we first saw that child, i mean, we kind of looked at each other and instinctively, we're like, we got to go, let's go. at that intotime, my partner to the keys from me, got behind the wheel, i got in the back seat, cradling the baby, putting
pressure on his wound. >> child shot, in my car, we're going to the hospital now. >> the ride, some nine miles long, a race against time. princeton's pregnant mother and grandmother were also shot multiple times. they didn't survive. >> i also then called ahead to the hospital to tell them to get ready because we were coming in hot so to speak. >> let them know we're coming in with this gunshot wound to the lower left side. >> i pulled up, immediately got out of the car, opened the door for officer who had the baby. immediately ran into the emergency room with me right behind him and handed off to emergency personnel. >> let me know when you hand the baby off. >> it's a good feeling knowing the actions you took potentially saved the child's life but on the other end of the spectrum it's tragic because there was a loss of life. >> princeton surveyed and is now being raised by family. all thanks to the actions of officer whose split second
decisions likely saved her life. >> the people that we didn't even know just coming up to us saying thank you for what you did. >> ryan young, cnn, chicago. >> how awesome is that. coming up, is jeb bush turning up the heat in new hampshire, taking new shots at donald trump and marco rubio? will it work in time for tuesday's primary? also ahead, moments from now, bernie sanders expected to announce a major endorsement. stay right here. but ended up nowhere. now i use this. the nicoderm cq patch, with unique extended release technology, helps prevent the urge to smoke all day. i want this time to be my last time. that's why i choose nicoderm cq.

no question, in this election cycle, at least on the republican side, when it comes to big auditoriums, no one is better than trump. but voters like to see their candidates up close and personal. mr. trump is now try a different strategy, selling himself to voters one on one. he sat down in a new hampshire diner with anderson cooper and a small group of voters. took direct questions from the crowd. here is donald trump opening up about his brother's death from alcoholism. >> he got hooked on alcohol, just hooked. and ultimately it just was devastating. that's why i don't drink, you know, i don't drink. i don't drink. i don't smoke cigarettes. i don't take drugs. those are the three good things. i won't tell you the bad things. i probably wouldn't be here talking to you today if i didn't
have my brother fred. because he kept me off alcohol. maybe with my kind of personality, i'd be a serious alcoholic, i don't know. but i've never had a glass of alcohol in my life because my brother said don't you dare. he was a tough guy in his own way. don't you dare ever drink. because he knew he had a problem. and he passed on to me unbelievable information. >> that was donald trump there in new hampshire. he will not be there today, citing bad weather as the reason. but someone who is in the state is john kasich, ohio governor john kasich, just picking up an endorsement from montel williams, tv personality and marine core corps veteran. writing, we need an adult in the white house, that adult is kasich. kasich has been holding dozens of town halls to encourage support there. right now kasich is polling at 12% in the latest poll. in a statistical dead heat for third place with ted cruz. cnn chief political analyst
gloria borger. i just spoke with the ohio governor and asked if he would possibly consider the number two spot on the republican ticket. here they were. >> it's some kind of crazy. i mean, i wouldn't even think about that. i'm running for president. >> you are governor of ohio so people might think about it for you if you didn't -- >> it doesn't matter, i don't even think that way. >> you don't? >> i'd be the worst vice president anybody can imagine. i'd be worse than biden. i'm my own man. i don't take orders from these people. it's not who i am. i'm basically an unrelenting agent of change. >> and here she is, gloria borger joining me now. you just got off the bus. he's preparing for his 100th town hall in new hampshire this evening. he says he's his own man. how does he feel about his chances going into tuesday? >> look, he believes that he's actually in second place.
and not in third place. and he feels very good about it. as you point out. he's going to his 100th town hall, which is kind of remarkable. and when i asked him about it, brooke, he kind of got a little nostalgic. take a listen. >> people come, they talk about the trouble their kids are having. i mean, people will come and they'll cry. they'll give me a big hug. or i'll give them a big hug. or maybe, you know, the other day we were talking about the developmentally disabled. and, you know, it just -- it hits you like bang, you know, it's been interesting. so it tells me, gloria, that people, they need people. they need somebody to care about them. somewhere to go where it's safe. it's so weird for me to find it in a political event. >> right. >> trump has started to go on the retail circuit a little bit. doing a few town halls.
>> isn't that interesting. >> yeah what do you think about that? >> that's the way you do it here. they don't care about celebrity. they don't care about money. they don't care. these people want to know who you are. >> what's your advice for him? because he hasn't really done it. didn't do it in iowa. >> i just think it's -- you can't play catch-up here. >> there he is. saying, you know, you can't play catch-up. donald trump is number one in the polls, but at kasich's 100th town hall tonight, he's going to get somebody who's going to phone in and that is his old buddy arnold schwarzeneggeschwa. i asked him whether it was an endorsement. he said, look, arnold's my good buddy. i don't no whether it's going to be an endorsement but he's kind of maxed out in what he can give to me. clearly arnold likes john kasich. >> here you go, governor kasich says they don't care about
celebrities but a big name like that could help him in the end. gloria borger, thank you very much. make sure you watch gloria's full interview this afternoon on "the situation room" with wolf blitzer that starts at 5:00 eastern on cnn. from one governor to the next, jeb bush employing his all-in strategy in new hampshire. pulling out all the stops. putting his family on the campaign trail. packed crowd for his mom there, barbara bush. a new ad out featuring his brother. will this help him come tuesday for the first in the nation primary in new hampshire?
it's the little things in life that make me smile. spending the day with my niece. i don't use super poligrip for hold, because my dentures fit well. before those little pieces would get in between my dentures and my gum and it was uncomfortable. even well fitting dentures let in food particles. just a few dabs of super poligrip free is clinically proven to seal out more food particles so you're more comfortable and confident while you eat. so it's not about keeping my dentures in, it's about keeping the food particles out.
family. the guns are out, starting with this super pac ad. >> i know jeb. i know he has a good heart and a strong backbone. jeb will unite our country. he knows how to bring the world together against terror and he knows when tough measures must be taken. experience and judgment count in the oval office. >> also in addition to his brother, the family's matriarch, former first lady barbara bush, she is now in new hampshire going to bat for her son. >> jeb is the nicest, wisest, most caring, loyal -- he's not a bragger. we don't allow that. but he's decent and honest. he's everything we need in a president. >> let's go straight to tim miller. communications director for the
jeb bush presidential campaign. welcome back. good to see you. >> thanks, brooke. isn't she great? >> listen, lots and lots of love on the trail for barbara bush, you know, overflow crowds. my question to you is why wait so long to bring her out? >> mrs. bush is 90 years old, brooke, so we were happy to be able to get her out on the trail the last week before new hampshire. there's so many people in new hampshire that have such love for her, having campaigned here a number of times before in the past. and look, jeb brings it up very often on the trail when he says, you know, i recognize i won the genetic lottery when i was born in midland, texas, and opened my eyes and saw this barbara bush pearls. i was the luckiest kid on earth. he talks about it all the time and we were grateful to have her up here, talking about how jeb has the kind values that her generation had that this country has kind lost and we need to get back to so that was a great
message for her to deliver. >> george w. bush is in this new ad for the superpac supporting jeb. saying, listen, we're like all families but we're different. he's definitely embracing his family and their 12 years in the white house. we know george w. bush will be on the trail in south carolina. listen, tim, if things don't go, you know, outstanding for you all in new hampshire, do you think you'd regret not bringing his big brother out on the trail before south carolina? >> jeb has to make the case he is the person with the backbone to take on isis and he is the person who is ready to be commander in chief. who better to vouch for him than his brother. jeb had to lay out his plans to do this. he did it at the reagan library before the paris attacks. i think what voters have seen in jeb and what we see in polling is this is somebody who's prepared to be commander in chief. that's why he's the endorsement of 12 medal of honor recipients
and 40 generals and their endorsement of him is so important. to have his brother vouch for him as well is a nice boost right before the primary. >> as you well know, jeb has been hit because of the link with his brother in the war and hillary clinton has been hit, you know, because of personal attacks with regard to her husband. i'm just curious, with these political dynasty families, the clintons and the bushes, do you think jeb bush gets more heat, more flack for his family than hillary clinton and hers? >> look, jeb has said that he knows the bar is higher on him. but he holds himself -- >> is that a yes, tim miller? >> yes, of course the bar is held higher for jeb. but that's okay. you need to earn it. running for president is hard business. you know, while there are other campaigns out there the complaining if they get bad coverage or complaining if there's an attack against them,
marco rubio's somebody that's been doing a lot of that lately, that's not jeb. so he's going to go out there and he's going to earn it and take his lumps. he might get a little harder from you guys in the liberal media than hillary clinton does, but that's okay. >> you brought up marco rubio so let me ask you about that. i was talking to jonathan martin yesterday, broke the story in the times, talking about back channeling between operatives between you camp and chris christie's camp. the goal is to throw some molasses under marco rubio's shiny black boots. the campaign released this ad today. >> what do you list
as marco rubio's top accomplishment that made you decide to endorse him? >> i guess it's hard to say. >> i'll ask one more time, list one accomplishment marco rubio has achieved in four years in the united states senate. >> jeb bush ran florida. marco rubio -- finish the sentence. >> i would just say this is a guy who's been able to, number
one -- >> both tell line is, he didn't get accomplishments done. neither did president obama. >> okay, so that's the ad. now with regard to this back channeling, you know, chris christie said the reporting was, in a word, baloney. care to comment? >> i think christie was right. the more important issue is the substance of that app. and the reason why marco rubio and his surrogates can't say what his accomplishmentsters are senate is because the only one was the gang of eight immigration bill he worked on and then abandoned as soon as it got unpopular. yesterday, marco was asked about this on fox. he cited a bill that
passed by unanimous vote in the senate and he didn't show up to vote for it. i mean, that is the best he has to offer when it companies to accomplishments. the fact is, it's just not there. we're facing really tough times. we need somebody who has had to make tough decisions. jeb bush has done that with the best conservative record in
florida. >> we'll see if you all can slow marco rubio's roll. i'm seeing a lot of snow. i'm glad i'm packing my snow boots tonight. >> it's not that bad. >> we do know that trump was supposed to have an event. you know, he called it off because of weather. and then let's pull up tweet, guys, the jeb bush tweet, where he points out the fact his 90-year-old mother. here we go. he says, tweeting, @donald trump. my 90-year-old mother made it out to a campaign. point being, we're here, you're not. is this little twitter trolling, tim miller? >> we expect to hear a response from donald, he'll be tweeting from trump tower in his slippers and his robe because he couldn't make it to new hampshire. i think he probably could have made it but that's all right. >> i'll be there. >> he's got a town hall tonight. >> i'll be there. >> yes, we look forward to having you up here. >> all right, tim mill, thank
you very much. presidential campaign, thank you. let's remind everyone tonight, we will sit down with jeb bush and barbara bush. watch that interview, 8:00 eastern, here on cnn. meantime, any moment now, we're watching, waiting to see bernie sanders and his big endorsement today. we'll take that live. we'll also talk ton a longtime friend of senator sanders. they go way back to their friendship in the '70s. we'll talk about his arrest during a civil rights protest in the '60s. best in class v8 horsepower, and best in class v8 towing? chevy. i'm going with ram. definitely ford. the new 2016 chevy silverado offers best in class v8 fuel economy... holy smokes! ...horsepower, and towing. they're all chevy. that's right. all chevy. the fastest-growing pick-up brand. now during truck month, get this silverado all star 5.3l with a total value of seventy-five hundred dollars.

a new technology that can predict plays on the sidelines. check this technology out. >> during the game, there was a moment where the patriots didn't have access to their information on their tablets and they were pretty distraught. coaches are using more data. everybody needs access to the data in order to make the best decisions possible. this is a software company which enabled people to gain insight from their data. i was just using my golf swing to try to improve it. a friend of mine said, hey, can you splunk the nba. we realized this could be valuable. let's say there's three yards to go. it's the third quarter, the third down, what's peyton going to do? well, historically, he would pass it 76% of the time. but in this case, learning the
model, it looks like he's more likely to pass it than history says. so by analyzing all of the plays in the history of the nfl since the year 2000, we can see a lot of common threads. with that data, you can predict the next play. if you're a copach, you can disrupt what the other team thinks. you might run a model on your own team and say, oh, they think we're going to pass right here, let's do something different. >> okay, coy wire, thank you. sanders' history as an activist getting attention. he was talking to anderson about this at our town hall earlier in the week. up next, we'll talk to someone would has known the senator for decades. how will his history as an activist play with younger african-american voters? also ahead, breaking news on the explosion of a jet.

that primary in south carolina could be a huge test for the vermont senator. in recent days, he has become more and more vocal. here he was speaking out about the water crisis in flint, michigan. >> i suspect the secretary agrees, one wonders if this were a white suburban community what kind of response there would have been. flint michigan is a poor community. it is disproportionately african-american and minority. and what has happeneded there is absolutely unacceptable. >> let's bring in someone who has known senator sander since the early '70s. he is john franco. in the '80s, he was city attorney under then mayor bernie sanders. also, he is back, cnn political commentator mark lamont hill. gentlemen, welcome, to both of you. >> good to be here. >> john, on the personal side of
bernie sanders, i think for those people, unlike us who have been following this so, so closely, they kididn't realize until they watched the town hall with anderson cooper about his arrest. they didn't know he was arrested and that he marched and, you know, this, you know, came from this lower middle class jewish family, grew up in brooklyn, went to college in vermont. people are just learning about this. >> well, bernie went to college at the university of chicago, then he moved to vermont. >> moved to vermont. >> you mentioned his arrest to desegregate in chicago in 1962. i was in probably the fourth or fifth grade at that time. >> don't age him. >> i met bernie in 1974. that tells you how long his commitment's been. he went to the march on washington. i remember watching that on television when i was in i believe the fifth grade. that's how long bernie's commitment to civil rights has
been and to social justice. >> so you were young. he was a smidge older. point being, this has been a thread through his lose. for you, mark lamont hill, especially when you look at the numbers aamerican african-american voters in south carolina, why do you think he's not polling higher? >> i think there are a few reasons. the clintons have a very strong connection to african-american communities. despite the fact that bill clinton undermined black prosperity during the '90s. many black people still consider him the original first black president. because of that, they feel connected to the clintons as a proxy. one where we can be somewhat critical of bernie sanders. early on, bernie sanders responded to calls from black lives matter movement by saying, hey, i marched with king. or hey, my economic justice program will lead to racial justice. in a sense, his critique felt dismissive and a little
condescending to people. >> you don't think that worked for him? >> not so much. >> how would -- and then i want to ask about hillary clinton. john, you know, i was talking to killer mike, a rapper in atlanta. he did this pretty fascinating interview with sanders. he endorsed him. he said, look, i don't think he's resonating as much among african-americans because he hasn't gone to, you know, black colleges, black churches. do you think that will change knowing bernie sanders as you do? >> oh, it absolutely should. i think the fundamental problem with bernie's traction with the african-american community is they haven't had a chance to become familiar with him. secretary clinton was first lady. bill clinton ran two presidential races. she herself ran a presidential race. she served in the united states senate when she was secretary of state. people are just beginning to know bernie sanders and that's his challenge, frankly.
>> john, knowing him as you do, watching him go back and forth with hillary clinton, what do you make of him, his style, his personality on screen? >> i was talking with the vermont reporter a couple of days ago and i remarked about how not in the debate last night but the last one they had, when it got a little testy, and i said, boy, this is like old burlington city council meetings. >> really. >> i said for him debating secretary clinton is easy because he's only up against one when he was on the city council, he had eight on the city council that were opposed to him so it's like old home week for him. they used to call it in burlington the monday night fights literally. so he's very used to this. that is something he's i think fairly used to and fairly comfortable with and stands up well. >> bernie the brawler. mark, on the flip side. >> well, that's not really fair. bernie the principled at vacate
i would say. >> i'm being gentle how i say that. i hear you. i get it. he's used to it and then some. on hillary clinton, mark, you know, she is having a tougher time than expected. courting the younger vote. especially among young women. in iowa city all these young women they're like we're going to see a woman as president in our lifetime so we don't feel this pressure, you know, to support hillary now. but she has been so totally active in women's rights ever since she graduated yale law school. >> well it depends how we're thinking about women's rights. in the same way bernie's been active for social justice. we could demand more, right? hillary clinton represents a certain kind of bourgeois feminism. women airport juren't just voti first. they don't want to just vote a woman in because she's a woman. for some, bernie sanders
represerep re represents a kind of vision of america that's different. he seems like an outsider, although he's been in the senate forever. seems like he's not playing the traditional wall street and washington games. for that reason, many people are connected to him. i think hillary made a mistake, she took voters for granted. in the same way they took black voters for granted in 2008. in the same way they're taking women voters. i think it's dangerous and might cause her a problem in some key states come super tuesday. >> thank you both so much. got some breaking news. we've been reporting on this. we're learning more about that explosion that caused this huge hole. this is a passenger plane. it was midair. this explosion happened. we're learning about the man who was actually thrown out of the plane when something went off here. robin creole is on the phone with me now. as this plane was over, what,
mogadishu, robin what do you know? >> what we know at the moment is the device that investigators believe was the explosive device was actually a laptop. and that there was some kind of an explosive device either inside the laptop or it was a laptop bomb. we know the man who was ejected from the plane just over m mogadishu is the suspect behind this bombing. investigators obviously say they're not sure if he is a member of any terror group, particularly al qaeda linked militant group al shabab which is sort of very active in mogadishu and somalia, but they are investigating why exactly he sat in that seat and why the device, which they believe was a laptop bomb, why it was placed in is up a strategic place over the wing of the plane which is over the engines. if it had been any high, it was about 12,000 feet when this device went off if it had been
at cruising at attitude at 30,000 feet it would have likely brought the plane down. >> laptop bomb. robin creole, thank you very much. you're watching cnn. i'm brooke baldwin. thanks for being with me. we have a lot to get to. four days before that new hampshire primary. two prime candidates. they're breaking out with new attitudes. donald trump striking a somewhat softer gentler tone. while a tougher hillary clinton is fighting back. during the presidential democratic debates. >> i'm not making promises that i cannot keep. >> experience is not the only point. judgment is. and once again, back in 2002, when we both looked at the same evidence about the wisdom of the war in iraq, one of us voted the
right way and one of us didn't. >> we did differ. a vote in 2002 is not a plan to defeat isis. we have to look at the threats that we face right now and we have to be prepared to take them on and defeat them. >> secretary clinton does represent the establishment. i represent i hope ordinary americans. and by the way who are not all that enamored with the establishment. >> senator sanders is the only person would i think would characterize me a woman running to be the first woman president as exemplifying the establishment. >> what being part of the establishment is, is in the last quarter, having a superpac that raised $15 million from wall street. >> and enough is enough. if you've got something to say, say it directly. but you will not find that i ever changed a view or a vote because of any donation that i ever received. so i think it's time to end the
very artful smear you and your campaign have been carrying out in recent weeks and let's talk -- let's talk about the issues. >> on our worst days, i think it's fair to say, we're 100 times better than any republican candidate. >> i am the strongest candidate to take it to the republicans. >> okay, so that was that. how about a nicer donald trump perhaps? just days after he accused ted cruz about stealing his caucus win in iowa, this exchange with anderson coop better ted cruz. >> look, i'm into new hampshire now. it was just one of those things. you know, i like ben carson very much. he got pretty roughed up frankly. although it affected me maybe more than ben. but i'm so much -- because i've been here for two days. i'm so much into this, into new hampshire that i don't care
about that. >> with me now, susan page, washington bureau chief for "usa today" who is covering her tenth presidential campaign. we were in iowa. now you're in new hampshire. listen, you know how important new hampshire is. how it's a totally different beast than iowa. i'm curious on the new attitudes between hillary clinton and donald trump. are you seeing that? ways at play here? >> well, you know, new hampshire obviously very important, especially on the republican side, you know, we still got a pretty big field on the republican side coming out of new hampshire. it will probably get smaller. and that's one of rnts i think you see some of the battling in ads. with trump taking a softer tone. that's not the case on the trail for some of the other candidates and i don't think that will be the case tomorrow night in the last republican debate before new hampshire votes. last night, among the democrats, definitely the fiercest debate we've seen of the five so far. probably because it was down to two people. that made it easier to go head to head. but also because close to new hampshire and to the states that
follow it, especially with hillary clinton, you see here, looking past a likely loss in new hampshire, to victory she hopes to score in south carolina and nevada and on super tuesday. >> well, even though this is sort of bernie sanders geographical wheel house, you talked to the governor of new hampshire who is supporting hillary clinton. let's watch that. >> here we are in new hampshire where we have come together over the last few years and really worked hard to make progress. but then what the voters tell me they see in washington is real frustration that corporate special interests have really rigged the system for themselves and against the middle class. >> well, the contrast with bernie sanders, why are new hampshirites who voted for her in 2008 interested for the moment in voting for him? >> i think sanders has done a good job in identifying the problem and tapping into real frustration but at the end of the day, you have to do something with that frustration to create change.
and that's where hillary clinton's record is just unparalleled. >> i mean, susan, you've seen on the polls, other than this one outlier poll, do you really think she believes hillary clinton's going to pull the win on tuesday? >> i can't believe she does but you know what, i wouldn't have believed it eight years ago either when hillary clinton came from behind, extraordinary contest. hillary clinton campaign thinks they are likely to lose here. they hope to lose by less. to close the gap. they're really looking to future states to save her candidacy or burst her candidacy. bernie sander's problem is where does he win against next? and that's a problem for him. but clearly, this is a race. both come campaigns believe it's going on for a long period of time. they have a lot of money. a lot of supporters. we're going to be covering this democratic contest until the spring. >> susan page, we'll see you in new hampshire, all right, thank you very much. stay warm. >> okay, they are the two
front-runners for the tuesday new hampshire primary. these two candidates seem like polar opposites. but it turns out, you know what, there are some similarities between donald trump and sanders, especially when it comes to campaign finance reform. joining me now, our normal friday date. i have cnn political commentator michael smerconnish. >> that's a good observation about the two of them. >> how do you mean? >> insofar as neither one is dependent upon quote/unquote -- >> oh, those two? >> those two. insofar as they're not dependent on big money. >> they're self-financing. they can say i'm not in bed with anyone. >> donald's doing it himself. and probably the best business transaction in which he's ever been involved given the return for which he's making a very i think limited contribution so far. >> don't you think -- critics say he should put more money into it, have more of a ground game because he didn't do as well as some have thought in iowa. and new hampshire's huge for him. even though he's ahead in polls.
you never know what could happen. >> it would seem like he should have written a bigger check in iowa. should still write a check in new hampshire. to make sure folks get out to the polls. great example of of that was reported in today's times direct mail. an old staple of making sure people have an added motivation to come out. to your initial observation, you're absolutely right, neither is dependent upon big money. i think that strikes a chord with an electorate that is so frustrated by the prospect that so much is being spent and being spent by dark forces. meaning a lack of transparency. that's the most objectionable part to me. >> in addition to the money, wasn't it donald trump just last week obviously they would maybe say it differently. he was saying, what about universal health care? isn't that something you would hear out of bernie sanders mouth? the trump campaign would say, no, we want to appeal obamacare and start new. >> he's done like a fox. that i learned the hard way. i think donald trump is probably recognizing that 40%, 41% of the
electorate in new hampshire are independents. independents who can walk in and make a determination as to whether to vote. >> on tuesday. >> right, and additional reason why the state is so difficult to poll. i think it's a calculated decision on trump's part to try to reach the 40-plus percent. >> can we talk about your column and how -- >> lay it on me, come on. >> -- a lot of pick up this week. first, part of chris cuomo's interview with host glenn beck, here you go. >> is there a little bit of reap what you sow in some of this, for the gop, that engendering an oppositional mode towards government, ratcheting up negativity as a mainline discourse, you wound up somewhat birthing trump, and now some those people who were angry about what was going on and telling people to be angry, now they've got somebody harnessing the power of exactly that and you're disappointed. >> well, not disappointed. i've warned about this. you go back to my shows on fox
and i've warned. the progressive movement. donald trump is a progressive, make no mistake. >> there's that word progressive again but used in a different context. essentially talking about these incredibly popular conservative radio show hosts and talk show hosts who essentially you're saying have a grip on republicans. >> a greater -- i argue they have a greater sway on the gop base than does the party leadership. and that that has taken place over last 30 years. brook, when i'm out and about, not here on cnn, not answering the phone on my own radio program, but leading my real life, people engage me about politics and what i hear most often is the question, people will say, explain to me, how did donald trump get to be the front-runner. how did ted cruz, two relatively bombastic personalities, get to be in the position. >> what do you say? >> i say look to the leadership of the republican party. i'm not talking about reince priebus. i'm talking about beck and limbaugh and hannity.
and so those candidates are a reflection, i think, of the talk radio world. >> rhetoric, everything that's been -- >> absolutely, stirring the pot. the problem i think is the party exists, the democratic party, republican party, for one person, to win elections. those personalities exact for a different person which is to attract ears and eyeballs and clicks and frankly to make money. i think those purposes are at odds. >> but in all of this stirring have created the crocodile frankenstein wavhatever analogy you want to use. >> great in primary season. great to assist someone in winning a nomination. but not the way in which you go after the 42% of the country who are independents. one other thing, make no mistake, the best outcome for those personalities, hillary. they get to complain for four or eight more years. think about that. >> marinate on that for your weekend. we'll watch you. special edition tomorrow
morning, smerconish. donald trump canceling a trip to new hampshire today. we'll tell you why. and how jeb bush is taking advantage of that announcement. also ahead, president obama holding an unexpected news conference today and delivering some sharp words about not getting any credit. and saturday surprise, have you heard, we're getting some news about larry david's appearance on "saturday night live" tomorrow and why bernie sanders, ah, has a sudden change in plans, more on that coming up. soup and sandwich and somewhere to go, and clean and real and nowhere to be, and warmth and looking good, and sandwich and soup and inside jokes,
and dan is back! good, clean food pairs well with anything. the clean pairings menu. 500 calories or less. at panera. food as it should be. at ally bank, no branches equals great rates. it's a fact. kind of like grandkids equals free tech support. oh, look at you, so great to see you! none of this works. come on in. i've had moderate to severe plaque psoriasis most of my life. but that hasn't stopped me from modeling. my doctor told me about stelara® it helps keep my skin clearer. with only 4 doses a year after 2 starter doses... ...stelara® helps me be in season. stelara® may lower your ability to fight infections and increase your risk of infections. some serious infections require hospitalization. before starting stelara® your doctor should test for tuberculosis. stelara® may increase your risk of cancer. always tell your doctor if you have any sign of infection, have had cancer, or if you develop any new skin growths.

republican presidential candidate donald trump is blaming the weather, snow, for rescheduling an event tonight. trump postponed this morn's planned event until monday. a snowstorm coming down on new hampshire. that's the weather issue there. the move comes after trump had dramatically bulked up his new hampshire campaign in criticism
he wasn't doing enough in the granite state. jeb bush on twitter writes, my 90-year-old mother made it out to the campaign. she met with destiny, age 5. the photos you can see, shaking hands with that little girl. let me bring in cnn's jim acosta who is in florence, south carolina, where trump will appear later. are you hearing anything from trump's campaign? >> well, i mean, you could say that the trump schedule is frozen in new hampshire, that's for sure. >> ba-da-ba, jim acosta. >> i try. it's four days until the new hampshire primary. obviously this is playing in the media up there. this criticism he did not have enough of a ground campaign in iowa. that that was part of reason why he lost to cruz in the iowa
caucuses. you have this narrative out there that history might repeat itself in new hampshire. yes, the bush campaign did send out that tweet to sort of tweak trump a little bit. talking about barbara bush being out there in the snow, braving the elements of new hampshire. didn't really have much of a response. said they're too busy making america great again. donald trump many from his office today did post a facebook video honoring the official slogan of new hampshire. here it is. >> the
great slogan of new hampshire, live free or die, means so much to so much people. all over the world, they use that expression. it means liberty. it means freedom. it means free enterprise. it means safety and security. it means borders. it means strong, strong military. where nobody's going to met with us. it means taking care of our votes. what a great slogan. congratulations, new hampshire.
wonderful job. >> so there you go, donald trump really likes the official slogan of new hampshire. i'm sure that will please some folks out there. at the same time, people in new hampshire, they're a little bit like
the people in iowa, brooke, they expect these candidates to be at these town halls. they expect them to trudge through the snow and go to diners, go to coffee shops, no matter what the weather is. undoubtedly, this is probably going to have some kind of a small effect on this campaign. will continue this narrative donald trump isn't going in all the way and doing everything he has to do to win these contests. >> he was there last night. some of these other candidates have camped out for months and months. jim acosta in south carolina, thank you very much. next, hillary clinton breaks out some new ammunition to defend her use of a private e-mail server. turns out she wasn't the only one to do it. plus, the governors in this republican presidential race have been hammering marco ruino for so-called canned speeches.
the private e-mail server for classified information, not going away, but a new report from the investigators reveal colin powell and staff members of condoleezza rice also received e-mails on personal accounts. hillary clinton wasted no time on using the news to defend herself against her critics. >> now, we had a development in
the e-mail matter today. when it came out that secretary powell and close aides to secretary rice used private e-mail accounts. now you have people in the government who are doing the same thing they've been doing to me. which is that i never sent or received any classified material. they are retroactively classifying it. i agree completely with secretary powell who said today this is an absurdity. >> let's bring in cnn's chief political correspondent dana bash. just on facts. i mean what more have we learned now about these e-mails from these past administrations? >> that secretary colin powell sent two e-mails. and then condoleezza right apparently didn't use e-mail when she was secretary of state. top aides sent or received 10 e-mails. all of those were marked secret or confidential.
just as you just heard secretary clinton say, it was done after the fact. i think that is most importantly right now hillary clinton, because she's the only one of the three running for president, is dealing with, and she's very frustrated by. which is at the time they weren't confidential. there was no problem when it comes to the secrecy and importance of that with regard to the government's classified nature. but the problem is, in retrospect, they have been deemed that way. and it is the intelligence part of the state department that does that. and in a bipartisan way, these former secretaries of state are quite frustrated. >> with this news, does this at least help her at all, at least in this political part of the battle? >> of course. i mean, there's no way it doesn't help. however, brooke, this is kind of baked in the cake. i think with anything of this nature, particularly for somebody like hillary clinton,
who is polarizing, people who just don't care already don't care. people who think whatever she does with regards to these e-mails is nefarious, they're going to think there's something else there. so it's hard for me to believe there are undecided voters out there going, oh, well, powell and rice did it, so okay, guess i'll change my mind. >> okay, okay, people's minds are made up on that one. on the president, we saw him pop out for a news conference today just after noon. he was talking jobs and the economy. he was defending some of his policies he enacted to strengthen the u.s. economy. and yesterday we took it live. it was a great moment, you know, he was out with the nba champs. the golden state warriors. he made a subtle joke about giving credit where credit is due. talk about the warriors assistant coach. here was the president. >> you defied the cynics. accomplished great things, racked up a great record and you don't get enough credit.
i can't imagine how that feels. >> had we adopted some of the policies that were advocated by republicans over last four, five, six years, we know that we probably would have done worse and we know that because a lot of european countries adopted those policies and they haven't yet gotten to the same place they were before the crisis. so evidence, facts, are on our side. >> okay. wants to take a little credit. economic recovery. making a joke yesterday with the ball players. what did you make of all that? >> i remember when i was cub reporter which of course was -- >> not too long ago. >> we used to cover presidential campaigns and the first friday of every month, at 8:30 in the morning, every campaign operative on both sides, they were holding their breath waiting for the jobs report to come out. especially when things were not
good in the economy. because they were take that and spin that whichever way because it was all about jobs, jobs, jobs, jobs. the reason why the president is clearly so frustrated and is talking about this is because example, was an eight-year low. i mean, that is pretty good. but what you are seeing on the republican campaign trail is everybody from donald trump on down saying, these jobs reports don't mean anything. they're sort of meaningless. because they say and they're not entirely wrong about this, that it doesn't take into account other factors that make people feel bad about their economy. like wage stagnation. like the fact that people might have jobs but they're not really great jobs. maybe they have to have two jobs to survive. it's that kind of thing that you're hearing from republicans. because at the end of the day, brooke, you know this, it's really about how people feel. whether they feel like they can get ahead. whether they feel like they have a fair shot.
whether they feel like they can balance the budget. it's not so much about what a number says, percentage point, about a jobs report. >> so much of it is psychological. we talk about it all the time when those numbers come out. dana bash, cub reporter just yesterday, right. dana, thank you, in washington for us this afternoon. next, cnn has a first look at the new jeb bush ad attacking marco rubio and his record. by the way, he is not the only one these days. we're live in new hampshire with a closer look at senator rubio's campaign. and saturday night, where will you be? where will bernie sanders be? his sort of now infamous stand-in larry david takes the stage hosting "saturday night live." could a cameo appearance be in the works? a former snl writer joins me. it's a fact. kind of like social media equals anti-social. hey guys, i want you to meet my fiancée, denise. hey. good to meet you dennis.
but i've managed.e crohn's disease is tough, except that managing my symptoms was all i was doing. and when i finally told my doctor, he said humira is for adults like me who have tried other medications but still experience the symptoms of moderate to severe crohn's disease. and that in clinical studies, the majority of patients on humira saw significant symptom relief. and many achieved remission. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common,
you're watching cnn. i'm brooke baldwin. marco rubio, his third place finish in the iowa caucuses certainly elevated him to his rivals' line of fire. they're attacking him for his delivery, what they say is the same speech over and over again. new jersey governor christie saying rubio needs to come out his of bubble. when cnn asked rubio why his speeches sound so similar wherever he goes, rubio answered, because it's my message. so cnn put together a few highlights of that message. >> glad you didn't say polo. >> as long as you didn't say polo. >> i hated that game. i really hated that game. >> i can't wait to hear how she's going to lecture me about student loans. i had a student loan. i had a student loan three years ago. i had over $100,000 as recently as three years ago. i was never going to be able to pay those off unless i won
powerball or write a book. there's only two ways to get rid of a student loan. you pay it off or you die. i paid it off with a book called "an american son." it's call "american son." now available on paperback. that's not a joke, it is available on paperback. as the son and grandparents of immigrants. is not anti-immigrant. it is with sovereign -- it is what sovereign countries do. we are going to hire 20,000 new border agents. we're going to finish the fencing and walls the experts tell us we need. we're going to finish walls and fencing. that the experts say we need. we're probably going to have to pay for it though, not mexico. if we don't know why you're coming. and we don't know why you're coming. you are not getting into. into the united states of america. you will not be able to get into the united states of america. and bernie sanders the dude is a socialist. bernie sanders is a socialist. bernie sanders is a socialist.
it's not a slur. he's like a socialist. like a card carrying socialist. usually that's a slur but no, he's a socialist. he admits he's a socialist. like he says he's a socialist. think he's a good candidate for president of sweden. then i had these young men from sweden in the audience. thought they were going to chew me out. they said, why would you do that to our country? why would you do that to our country? so i take it back. he's not a good president for anyone. >> all right. so that's the cnn digital mash-up on marco rubio. live in new hampshire. listen, this is precisely why the bush camps and especially chris christie camps have been hammering him. these are stump speech after stump speech after stump speech, right? >> a lot of candidates do some similar tacts. that's certainly fair and something we point out in the story we wrote about this
situation. ted cruz stay on his message. even chris christie replicated the same jokes. none of them do it really to the extent marco rubio does. they is relentlessly on message. very disciplined, very cautious and very repetitive candidate. because he believes his message is working. now, of course, there are two ways to look at it. people say we want a candidate who's very cautious who will not make mistakes. when rubio's on the campaign trail, one of the things he said is i will not embarrass you. because he sticks really close to his topics. even in media interviews, he really falls back to his stump speech. during republican debates he does. he limits availabilities on the campaign trails as well and sticks to those topics. you have people say he's not authentic enough. one of the things chris christie is saying. we need to bring him out of the bubble. to show he is a rehearsed --
more than just a rehearsed candidate. that's one of the criticisms you're going to see pretty intense on saturday in this debate here, brooke. >> manny raju, thank you very much, manchester, new hampshire. you may not often hear the words cute and chris christie at the same time. i want you to meet 7-year-old singing diva who performed the national anthem at chris christie's campaign event. this little charmer has the brash chris christie practically eating out of her hand. >> hello, young lady. how you doing. are we going to go in and do business? >> yes. >> let's go. >> i'm 7. i've been singing the national anthem for a long time now. >> and now, somebody i've gotten to know pretty well, she is going to lead us with "the star spangled banner." here you go. ♪ o say can you see
♪ by the dawn's early light ♪ what so proudly we hailed and governor chris christie's event will be really fun because he's nice, he's funny and he has a lot of personality. a lot. until i'm 18, i can't vote. but if i am 19 right now, i would vote for chris christie. he's nice. he's serious. and he would be a good president. plus, he said if he does win, he would take me to the white house. >> definitely be coming to the white house if i win, of course. what do you think, i'm going to forget who you are? >> say what? she is 7. chris christie, you got to keep her around. coming up next, bernie sanders' alter ego. hosting "saturday night live" this weekend. a former snl writer will join me live.

a senior aide for the bernie sanders campaign says the senator will make a cameo appearance this weekend on "saturday night live." his doppelganger larry david, he will be hospitaling head of the all-important new hampshire primary, and some are comparing larry david's near perfect impression of sanders to the tina fey/sarah palin moment of 2008. >> we're doomed! we need a revolution! millions of people on the streets! and we got to do something and we got to do it now! >> i'm the only candidate up here who's not a billionaire. i don't have a superpac. i don't even have a backpack. i carry my stuff around loose in my arms like a professional, you know, between classes. i own one pair of underwear. that's it. some of these billionaires, they got three, four pairs!
>> i was there in the audience that night. let me tell you, he stole the show. anderson cooper even asked bernie sanders about the uncanny resemble between these two. here's bernie sanders. >> i understand larry david is hosting snl this weekend. he does a good imitation of you. do you do a larry david imitation? >> anderson, i know you've been in journalism for a long time. >> uh-huh -- are you doing your larry david right now? >> i am larry david. you didn't get it. >> i am larry david. so appears tomorrow night the truth will come out, yes, they are two different people. joining me, a former writer for snl, sign field, late show with david letterman. awesome to talk to you. >> nice to talk to you as well. >> so you have worked with larry david before on "seinfeld." you wrote the famous soup nazi ed so.
before i ask you about larry david himself, what do you think is going on inside of 30 roc now, inside of that "snl" writers room? how would you write this sketch? >> well, they have to be so excited they're going to get these two guys together. frankly, like you, i want to be sure we're not talking about the same guy, because i've never seen them both in the same room together. >> when you close your eyes, they sound like the same person, 100%. >> when i first saw bernie sanders, i said, that's larry david. even when i watch that impression of him on "snl," that's the larry i saw in the "seinfeld" writers room. >> do you think he sort of saw bernie sanders emerge on the national stage, and he was, like, light bulb moment, aha, lorne michaels, i have a proposal. >> as i understand it, he and writers of "snl" both came up with the ideas at the same
moment. at the very same time, larry was getting in touch with lorne and saying "i should play bernie sanders this weekend." and so, you know, it just seems like it was just in the air. >> i know these "snl" writers were sort of salivating over the summer and waiting to get back on because of all these incredible characters on the scene to write about. he was on last anytime and he was saying that larry davids' bernie sanders impression he thinks has made an impact on the campaign. here's colin. >> larry's so likable, you know, that it makes, you know, in a crazy curmudgeon way, like, oh, yeah, bernie sanders, i've always liked him. >> do you think that's possible? i mean, you know, jobts watches a lot of news and that's certainly i imagine helping "snl" but do you think it's helping the bernie sanders campaign? >> yes, we all love larry david
so you can project some of that on to sanders. the moment for me personally is when the politician meets the comedian doing the impression. we as an audience see this guy has a really good sense of humor about himself. you know, i know larry pretty well. i've had a little face time with bernie sanders. they're both great guys. i can't wait for saturday night. >> i mean, lift the curtain for so many of these snl fans. it's like teams, right, and you write different schedules and so certain writers are on the cold open or the political sketch, whatever it may be. can you talk about that process and how so many people must have so many ideas on this one this weekend? >> well, yeah, i mean, if you just look at the field of candidates, i mean, hillary clinton by herself, my wife can attest to the fact i've been doing bill clinton in the white house, walking through the door, "i'm back, baby." finding old cheeseburgers and candy bars. it's such a rich group of politicians to make fun of that,
you know, it's just one of those wonderful elections, you know, it makes me personally miss late night and being on it and writing it. they must be having a great time. >> they have to, they have to. i remember, think it was the first >> i think it was the first season where you have kate mckinnon who plays an awesome hillary clinton and then she rolls up to that bar and makes this cameo. so final 60 seconds, spike, how would you write the moment when the real bernie sanders meets the fake bernie sanders, aka larry david? >> three simple words, hold for applause because i think the audience will be applauding for about an hour when the two of them come together. the rest of it i leave up to the experts at snl. they're doing such a great job this season, i don't want to interfere with what they're doing. >> spike, thank you for taking the lunch break to chat with us. i know you're shooting season
three of "car matchmaker" that premieres in june. spike, thank you. >> you're welcome. coming up next here, the nfl commissioner announces new rules to increase diversity just days before the super bowl. we'll take you live to san francisco for those details. if t peanuts can work for you? that's right. i'm talking full time delivery of 7 grams of protein and 6 essential nutrients. ever see a peanut take a day off? i don't think so. harness the hardworking power of the peanut.

50. he announced some rule changes in the league that include improving player safety to preventing concussions and brain trauma. coy wire is in the bay area with more on the commissioner's comments. coy wire, what did goodell say? >> hi, brooke. it's a good day here in the bay. roger had a lot to say in his press conference. last year the league revealed 271 players suffered concussions this season. a new four-year high. that's up from 206 a year ago. so in that press conference moments ago, goodell addressed several questions regarding concussions. listen. >> i played the game of football for nine years through high school. i wouldn't give up a single day of that. if i had a son, i'd love to have him play the game of football. i'd love to have him play the game of football because of the values you get. there's risk in life. there's risk to sitting on the couch. what we want to do is get people
active. >> reporter: all right, moving on, we've heard the question all week, is peyton manning going to have his last season. he's in his 18th year, he's missed six games this season alone. he's had three neck surgeries in his career. two of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play the game, joe montana and dan marino gave us their thoughts on manning's future. >> i guess if he wanted to go play somewhere else, he would. >> who takes a chance on him? what will his number be even at the lowest? it's still got to be pretty high. >> it's going to be a lot more than you and i made together at the same time. >> exactly. >> whatever it is. >> the guys had a blast and our kickoff by the bay and it's going to be a lot of fun. the big game less than two days away. >> could we talk about, coy, some of the sort of weird side bets ahead of sunday. like you're in the bay area, people are -- what are the odds
of an earthquake happening during the game, 56-1 odds. this is stuff people are actually doing. you're there, what are you hearing? >> reporter: that's a good one. another fun one is what color will the gatorade be. what will be the first song coldplay during halftime. will the announces get into an argument during the broadcast. i heard dan marino will throw a pass to chris cuomo at some point. my bet is that he drops the pass, brooke. i'm putting all my money on that one. >> so my executive producer, who's in my ear each and every day, he is a bit of a carolina fan. i'm just wondering, we're just being real, coy, you and ion tv, how do you think they're going to stack up against the broncos? >> the carolina panthers are going to stack up extremely well against the broncos. vegas thinks they're going to win. most everyone thinks they're going to win. but i am going with the
underdog, brooke. the last four seasons the underdog has reigned victorious. i think that defense, the number one defense in the nfl can get the job done even against the dynamic cam newton. >> okay. eric hall is thanking you. coy wire, enjoy san francisco. enjoy the tickets to the big game. by the way, do not miss what we're calling kickoff by the bay. a cnn bleacher report special hosted by chris cuomo and you heard coy talking about that hall of fame quarterback dan marino. that is tomorrow at 2:30 eastern here on cnn. and before i let you go here, let's take a quick look at the dow, closing bell about to happen on wall street. quickly here, do we have the shot? all right. wow, a lot of red. down 222 points as we are encroaching into that closing bell, closing day there on wall street. with that, thank you so much for being with me. we will be live in manchester, new hampshire. i'm about to hop a flight right now, got my snow boots ready.
we'll be live at the first in the nation primary there. let's go to washington. "the lead with jake tapper" starts right now. >> thanks, brooke. just four days away and the gloves are on? well, they are at least for donald trump. "the lead" live from new hampshire starts right now. all the candidates pulling out their two-minute offense this super bowl weekend. jeb bush even calling on his mom to march him into the end zone as a kinder, gentler donald trump looks to turn his perceived lead into a win, unlike what happened in iowa. dead locked, a brand new poll showing bernie sanders in a virtual tie with hillary clinton nationally after the angriest night of the democratic campaign yet. plus, robo calls from skinheads. the white nationalist group urging americans to vote
