disconnect from all of the stimuli that's coming at us. i visualize pushing all the stress out. i do use tie chee as a form of physical fitness because each movement uses almost every muscle. everything is engaged, but not stressed. >> breathe out. >> because it's practiced slowly, a lot of people have discovered the healing benefits. >> tie chee improves our psychological health, and if we have depression, anxiety or sleep problems, it improves all those problems. >> the practice of tie chee overtime alters the underlying physiology in such a way that we're more rez yent and we're less likely to develop chronic diseases of aging. >> we all need a practice, whether it's tie chee or something else, that allows us to slow down. >> the firing of president trump's senior strategist steve bannon. >> sources tell cnn bannon was supposed to be fired two weeks ago. >> we'll see what happens with
5:01 am
mr. bannon. >> they were laughing at me when i was saying, heyel, this guy trump is going to be serious. >> he caused friction with d.c. insiders. >> if you think they're going to give you your country back without a fight, you are sadly mistaken. >> it was the president himself that failed america. he's failed the united states in terms of moral leadership. >> all of a sudden these statues of civil war generals that were installed in the jim crow era here, they became touch stones of terror. >> those statues represent the honor, the courage and the bravery of the confederate soldier. those soldiers were not fighting to perpetuate institutional slavery. >> this is "new day" weekend with vehicle or blackwell and christi paul. >> a goorng. there's growing fall out from
5:02 am
president trump's response to the violence in charlottesville one week ago today. >> business titans, charities and he van gel cal advisor all part of a remarkable rebuke of the president. >> steven mnuchin, a former yale classmates, apparently, urging him to resign. in a letter posted online, more than 300 alumni say it's mnuchin's moral obligation to step down. >> and you'll remember you see the video here on tuesday mnuchin stood right next to the president at that news conference when the president doubled down on his stance about violence in charlottesville, claiming that both sides were to blame. >> and a week after that deadly violence there in charlottesville there are new concerns this morning about what could happen today in boston. thousands of people are dppd to attend what's billed as a free speech rally, but they won't be the only ones downtown. there are counterprotestors expected to march and demonstrate against the hate, and they won't be that far away.
5:03 am
>> cnn correspondent joining us now. i understand from city leaders there they are building physical barriers to try to keep these two groups apart. >> and christi, you can see one of those physical barriers right behind me. those weren't there yesterday. they have put um those concrete barriers surrounding portions of boston common here trying to prevent any vehicle from making its way in. sadly we saw the result of what happened there a week ago today in charlottesville, virginia, so as a result, even though this event has been planned for weeks now, officials are really upping those security measures with hundreds of police officers, cameras and of course undercover officers will be in the crowd keeping a very close eye on the crowd. even though both sides are calling for a peaceful demonstration today, not just some of these free speech rally organizers. i can tell you, though, having heard from city officials here in boston yesterday, there is
5:04 am
that concern that perhaps some of that mixed messaging from president trump could perhaps embolden some of the individuals who may show up today to get a little violent, so as a result, really what we heard yesterday from commissioner william evans is this call for peace and also civility. >> i just think the rhetoric has really brought this to a different level, and that's what we're worried about. i've never seen so many people looking, almost looking for confrontation. and, you know, we've got to knock it down and remember what tomorrow is about. tomorrow is about coming together against the hate and bigotry that we've seen, unfortunately, in this country over the last couple of weeks. >> commissioner williams also adding a very stern warning about today's events, that if there is any violence that breaks out, vehicle or and christi, they will bring things to a close. they will stop things. but at this point what we're sealing several hours before the
5:05 am
event, the boston globe says it best, this is the calm before the rally. things expected to get started here in a couple of hours. >> all right. we appreciate it. thank you. >> all right. now to the exodus from the white house. chief strategist steve bannon fired, and this morning more than 20 hours or nearly 20 hours, we should say, after his departure, the president is now speaking about bannon on twitter. sending this out, this official statement. i want to thank steve bannon for his servicement he came to the campaign during my run against crooked hillary. it was great. let's go live no you to cnn white house correspondent. and we were wondering when we could hear from the president, kind of a boilerplate thanks for coming. and we know or at least we're waiting to find out what the real impact will be. >> reporter: hi, victor. that's right. we are waiting to see what impact steve bannon's departure will have on the white house. there's a school of thought that believes that steve bannon was responsible for a good deal of the infighting. he himself has talked about his
5:06 am
professed right west wing enemies like gary cohn and of course the president's son-in-law jared kushner. he's indicated that breitbart, the publicly case he headed before joining the white house and before joining the campaign and that he has now returned to will not go to war against the president, but will go to war for -- on behalf of the president on behalf of the kind of nationalist and the populist policies that both bannon and trump professed on the campaign trail. there's also the thinking that new chief of staff john kelly wanted to bring a sense of order to the white house, and so a departure of someone who was -- is responsible for some of the infighting could lead to a more effective, more efficient white house that can more effectively get the president's agenda through. i should mention the president also tweeted just a few minutes ago about his meetings at camp david yesterday, saying important day spent at camp david with our very talented generals and military leaders. many decisions made, including on afghanistan. so, victor, that is a preview of
5:07 am
perhaps that we will get some sort of announcement on afghanistan and troop levels just in the next few days. victor. >> one of the elements that steve bannon talked about with the weekly standard was his response to charlottesville this week, saying that that's his default, that's the message that got him elected, that connects with his base. steve bannon and president trump may be the only two people at that level in the white house who believe that that has been effective and has worked on his behalf and helped him over the last several days. >> you're absolutely right. those two -- steve bannon was one of the ones who was telling the president that he made the right moves that he said the right words. whether it was on saturday or on tuesday. but there has been a growing backlash to the president's response this past week in charlottesville, and not just from critics, not just from democrats but also from fellow republicans. we saw the former republican come knee for the president mitt romney post a lengthy and
5:08 am
scathing post on facebook calling on the president to apologize for his remarks to show that he stands for what he said on monday, which is against white supremacy, against neo-nazis, against the kkk i should mention news we got just this morning that the white house has announced that they are no longer going to participate in the kennedy center honors. these are a big deal. it's a big reception and gal aeach year honoring artists and performers. and the reason, victor is that we talked about business councils and charities pulling out of mar-a-lago, business leaders pulling out of the president's advisory counsel ilsz, him having to disband them. we've also seen, though, artists and performers who were going to be honored at the kennedy gala saying that they were going to skip the pregala reception at the white house. this is usually something that honor he's want to take part in, but we heard from television writer and producer norman here, who earlier in month even before
5:09 am
the events in charlottesville told "the new york times" he planned to skip that gala in protest of the president. we also heard from another honoree who said that she was planning to skip it. and lionel richie who said he was a friend of the president telling the today show he's a maybe. a lot of people that associating with the president is not good for their brand or their image. >> all right. thanks so much. >> i have to tell you about something else we've been watching this morning. six police officers shot in three separate incidents. two in florida, one in pennsylvania. in kissimmee florida one officer is dead and a second is in critical condition right now in what police are calling a possible ambush. then two officers were shot in jacksonville, florida and a third incident two pennsylvania state troopers were shot. what can you tell us about each of these incidents, dan?
5:10 am
>> well, we have three different shootings of police officers. it happened last night, two in florida as you mentioned and one in pennsylvania. one of them just outside of orlando in kissimmee. two officers responded to a 911 call. it may have been an ambush situation. the officers were surprised and they weren't able to return fire. one of the officers died and the other is critically injured. here is what the police are saying. >> it breaks my heart to have to come speak to you tonight about another senseless tragedy, one that's resulted in the death of one of our police officers and a grave critical situation of another. this evening sergeant sam howard, a ten year veteran of the kissimmee police department and officer matthew baxter, a three year veteran -- >> and police arrested three people following the smoothing and are searching for a fourth person. and then in jacksonville, florida, two officers were shot when they responded to an
5:11 am
attempted suicide call when they encountered a man with a high-powered rifle. the suspect also was shot and died after being taken to a local hospital. the jacksonville police department saying this. >> anytime that an officer is injured in the line of duty, it's tough, and this case is even tougher. i mean, these are serious injuries, and these are people that we work with day in, day out. and they are sworn -- they have a commitment to the community. and tonight they held fast to that commitment. like i said, they knew as they were approaching that house the seriousness of this and didn't flinch. >> so that's florida. and then in pennsylvania, southwestern pennsylvania in fair chance just south of pittsburg, two state troopers were shot last night as well near a grocery store. both officers taken to the hospital in stable condition. and president trump and florida governor rick scott reacting to these shootings on twitter. the president saying, quote, my
5:12 am
thoughts and prayers are with the kissimmee police and their loved ones. we are with you. and florida governor rick scott saying heartbroken to hear the loss of kissimmee police officer matthew baxter. praying for a quick recovery for officer in critical condition. >> dan lieberman, thank you so much. >> well, ceos, charities, churches, dozens are turning away from the president after his controversial reaction on charlottesville. can the white house contain, stop the fallout? >> also, young rural americans feeling like strangers in their own country, understanding the white nationalist movement and why some young men, white men become radicalized. >> and a candidate for governor in georgia wants to remove the state's largest confederate monument. we'll speak with her about it. e. it comes in the mail, you pull out the tube and you spit in it, which is something southern girls are taught you're not supposed to do. you seal it and send it back

trump's supporters and advisers are backing away after his comments about charlottesville. the president's business councils. let's start there. shut down after dozens of ceos resigned in protest. the infrastructure council that the president mentioned on tuesday, that didn't even get off the ground. the president's mar-a-lago resort, is 16 companies charities and organizations have canceled eengts. also a resignation from the president's evan gel cal advisory board. he said that there was a deepening conflict in values between himself and the administration. and then there's dozens now, dozens of republican lawmakers who have publicly called this president out. joining me now cnn political analyst josh rogue an, shawn sullivan and former republican congressman and campaign advisor jack kings ston. hey, congressman, let me start with you. how does the president stop this? what does he have to do? >> well, i think what we're seeing, particularly with the
5:18 am
departure of steve bannon is a new discipline at the white house that the chief of staff, mr. kelly is imposing trying to get message discipline but also trying to get policy discipline and trying to move forward on their agenda. i can tell you this as a republican, if we do not reveal and replace obamacare, do not have tax reform and infrastructure bill, we're not going to be in office -- >> let me jump back in here because my question wasn't about how does he stop the exodus of people that work for him. the list i just read of people who are leaving him because of his comments about charlottesville. >> well, i just think he needs to stabilize the ship and move the agenda forward. the best way to get past this is to get past this and just to move on. and i think so many of the people on the business councils and so forth never were trump supporters. they were fair weather friends and doing camo type jobs. you know the business community is very, very risk at verse and they get pressure from left wing
5:19 am
outside groups to not go to mar-a-lago or not to serve on this board or that board, and they yield to it. i understand that. they are not reliable political allies for democrats or republicans. they never have been. >> shawn, let me come to you because part of the list that i read, i think it's 24, 25 republican lawmakers who are calling the president out by name. and it wasn't without controversy to be on the president's boards before now. there was a trickle of i guess a few ceos who backed away earlier in the administration. how does the president stop this? is he interested in stopping it? i'll put the question to you, shawn. >> yeah. it's not clear that he is. and, you know, when you listen to the way that republican members of congress are talking about the president now versus the way they were talking about him four or five months ago, it is very different. they really have distanced themselves. you know, they're almost talking about him often not as if he is the leader of their party or the
5:20 am
president, just as somebody who they might be able to work with, and if they're not able to work with him, a lot of them shrug it off and say we're going to focus on our congressional agenda. and remember, we're not even a year into this presidency yet, so it is remarkable to see high-ranking members of the president's own party distance themselves from him to the extent that they have so far. >> seven months tomorrow. and, josh, to you, i want to read an excerpt from a letter from more than 340 former classmates of treasury secretary steve mnuchin, class of 85 from yale. and they signed this letter urging him to leave. and here is a pours of it. we call upon you as a friend, our classmate and as a fellow american to resign in protest of president trump's support of nazisism and white supremacy. we know you're better than this and we're counting on you to do the right thing. impact here. >> yeah. i don't think steve mnuchin is going to resign anytime soon, although little clear that he and other trump administration officials have been putting out a lot of not so subtle
5:21 am
indications that they were very displeased with the president's remarks about charlottesville. in the end the mnuchin cohn wink of the white house is winning, right. that's what the bannon exodus shows. and they've got an agenda and they want to -- since they've already got of linking themselves up with the trump administration whatever costs and benefits that's going to give them, they might as well move forward and try and get their agenda through. and that's exactly what they're doing. that's a different calculation than these sort of councils full of people who as the congressman never really bought into the trump administration in the first place. those councils are never really a very stantsive thing anyway, so you can't really way the costs and the benefits in any measurable sense. but for guys like steve mnuchin, gary cohn, h.r. mcmaster for that matter, vice president mike pence, they've bet their careers on what they can do in this administration. and near not going to go anywhere until they've figured out if they can actually achieve
5:22 am
those things. >> hey, jack w what's your assessment of what we read in the weekly standard from steve bannon on his way out that the presidency, speaking about the president's base, that they fought for and won is over? it will be something else, but that presidency is over? what's your take there? >> well, you know, victor, i think there's always disappointment anytime you win a race that you can't quite do everything you wanted to do and do it as fast because you meet the i am moouflk object called the status quo in washington, d.c. i understand some disappointment there. i'm not a 100% sure i know exactly what he meant because on the same hand he has plenld to fight trump's enemies from the outside. and as you know, he has been very, very effective on the outside. >> but some of those enemies worked for him. he believes some of those enemies are his daughter, his son-in-law, his economic advisor, his national security advisor. >> you know, but it still has vice president pence.
5:23 am
he still has kellyanne conway. people who came up with steve bannon, ideological conservatives who have deep roots and lots of different conservative camps. so i don't think steve bannon is going to give up on the fight that he's put his life's work in in terms of the philosophy. and i spoke to the white house about this yesterday, and they said this move was far more functional than philosophical, that they still believe in what mr. bannon believes in many cases they're populists, but as a matter of function, he did four press conferences last week without authorization and you just can't have that. >> and let me get to shawn here. will there be still this kitchen cabinet that steve bannon will be part of, although he won't be on the government payroll, that he'll still have the ear of the president. >> yeah. and that's the way the president has operated. if you look at the way he's operated in the campaign and during the early months of his presidency, he's cycled through a lot of lot of top advisors,
5:24 am
but a lot of these advisors, even when they leave their official rolls and capacities, continue to have a dialogue with the president, continue to have his ear, continue to influence him. but the question now is, you know, what does bannon do when he returns to breitbart? does breitbart start to really single out members of trump's administration that bannon clashed with when he was there? does breitbart start to single out the president more than it has in the past. that's the question, i think, what kind of dynamic are we going to see? are we going to see a new level of tension that we haven't seen before. >> steve bannon says he's jacked up and free now. i've got to get to you josh in this. is he basian gorka, cnn reporting that he's on thin ice. is that really an impact on policy? i mean, how much of a role does he have in the white house? >> gorka is an interesting character because while he p wasn't on the national security council staff, he doesn't even have a security clearance as far as i know, he was messaging the president's foreign policy on tv every day.
5:25 am
and that has its own impact. and he was doing that under steve bannon's tutelage and with the president's approval. so if gorka goes that's going to change how people understand american foreign policy around the world because he simply won't be explaining it any more. and that's important. this just shows that sort of the bad move from the inside to the outside. the breitbart stuff that was already going on. they were already going to do all the stuff that they were about to do. but inside the white house, to have that sort of ideological line pushed at that high of a level, if that goes away and if gorka goes with it, that's a big change and that's significant. >> all right. thank you. >> thank you. >> well, still to come, mocked, cheated, disenfranchised, that's how some young white mean in rural america are feeling. we're discussing the driving message behind the white nationalist movement and why they become so radical.

5:29 am
5:30 am
well, the violence in charlottesville has started another conversation about the state of race relations in the u.s. the white nationalist rallies, those specifically have sparked a debate about why parts of white rural america are becoming radicalized to the point of joining neo-nazi rallies. ali russell hockey shield wanted to talk about this. she's the author of strangers in their own land. also a professor of sociology at the university of california berkeley. and it's really fascinating you spent five years in white rural america to write this book and you admittedly said this was a different bubble for you, traveling from where you are to where you went. what did you learn about white rural america that surprised you most? >> well, that they were eager to talk to me, that they were as
5:31 am
worried about this divide in our country as i was. there's no one story, that there's internal complexity. but most of all, that they feel between a rock and a hard place. on the one hand they have suffered a lot of losses and feel like their culture has been bypassed and their religion. they feel invisible. they feel like strangers in their own land. on the other hand, they're being equated with the alt-right, and they say no. there's a cultural -- there's a missing cultural space for them as white, very often blue collar people. and they want to be seen. they felt that trump was giving them that visibility and now seems to be stumbling, and they don't -- they feel like they don't have a choice.
5:32 am
and there's a missing space for them. >> so as i understand it, you said that it was an extraordinary journey for me for five years to really get to know some amazing people who live in a different truth. and what you're talking about it sounds to me like you're saying they feel cheated, that they don't want goth help, but what is -- >> they don't want -- either -- you know, i've just been talking to a lot of them about charlottesville and asking them about the statue thing, and i ran by them an idea by a colleague of mine, troy duster, who has this idea of two statues. you don't take general lee down but you add frederick douglas, you know, and that you keep history and you -- what you pull forward, though, are people that are -- don't have monuments to
5:33 am
them like eye da b. wells or wilson. a philip randolph and create a conversation. i put that to them and they said, one of them said, you know, that's a great idea. why isn't anybody talking about that? >> when you talked with these people, could you discern why some would want to join a neo-nazi movement? >> i should for the record, the people i came to know over five years are not neo-nazi and they're in horror of it and they feel in the eye of the public confused with that position. but they don't feel seen by anybody else. there's a sense of being strangers in their own land. and that makes them think, well,
5:34 am
i don't have choices. they didn't see that in the democratic party. >> you are echoing how you described them and characterized them is what a lot of african americans would say in this country as well. based on what you learned in those five years, did you also -- or were you able to identify a way to heal some of the race relations we see today? >> yes, absolutely. and, you know, i think what we need is a bridging movement. and there is something like that going on. if you are to google bridge alliance, for example, you will find some 70 or 80 different organizations, grassroots with names like high from the other side or living with conversations. i've been part of one myself. and since the book has come out, i've gotten a lot of e-mail. hey, i'm part of an episcopal conversation in massachusetts, but can you put me in touch with
5:35 am
a congregation in like charles, louisiana. so i call up my friend in louisiana, she said sure. so there's a lot of good angels of good will that's being -- right now that puts -- >> it's certainly a task that you took on that it's interesting to hear how you grew and what you learned. thank you so much for sharing. appreciate it. >> all right. let's take you now to berlin, where we are seeing neo-nazis, neo-nazis in berlin. counterprotestors allig there as well. they are marking the anniversary of the death of rudolph hes, who was adolph hit her's deputy. hes killed himself in prison 30 years ago and police are not taking any chances after the violence we've seen here in the u.s. and next, she wants confederate monuments to come down, but she also wants to win the race for the governor in the south.
5:36 am
can she do both? we'll talk to the candidate for georgia governor, stacy abrams. why should over two hundred years of citi history matter to you? well, because it tells us something powerful about progress: that whether times are good or bad, people and their ideas will continue to move the world forward. as long as they have someone to believe in them. citi financed the transatlantic cable that connected continents. and the panama canal, that made our world a smaller place. we backed the marshall plan that helped europe regain its strength. and pioneered the atm, for cash, anytime. for over two centuries we've supported dreams like these,
5:37 am
and the people and companies behind them. so why should that matter to you? because, today, we are still helping progress makers turn their ideas into reality. and the next great idea could be yours.
5:38 am
5:39 am
5:40 am
welcome back. 20 minutes till the top of the hour. it's got to be the largest confederate monument in the world. the carving on the face of stone mountain just outside of laept. larger than mount rush more. confederate generals robert e. lee, stonewall jackson, jefferson daifls. our next guest who is running for governor of georgia wants to see it blasted off that mountain. on the phone with us, stacey abrams. representative, good to have you this morning. >> thank you for having me. >> so first explain if you
5:41 am
would, we've got some time constraints, but tell us how why you want this monument off that mountain. >> this is a really challenging moment for our country when our president is condoning hatred and violence and people are losing their lives. and this is a time for leaders to stand up and say that we're capable of better. confederate monuments do not reflect what we're capable of becoming together. we can be a state where our public schools are full actually fully funded, where there are jobs in every single county, where people have access to health care. that cannot happen when we have massive monuments to hatred and bigotry and racism. >> so let me get you to respond to something that republican candidate for governor michael williams said in response to your call for that monument to be remove. i want to know where stacy draws the line. will she demand we blowup the jefferson memorial or knock down the washington monument and he said he doesn't support did he facing stone mountain. your response to that.
5:42 am
>> confederate monuments have nothing to do with any of our american history, except treason and domestic terrorism. they were put up post reconstruction to terror eyes black families, to scare them because of their demand to be treated as equal american citizens. i may have issue with other parts of our american history, but there is nothing that americans should unite around more than tearing down monuments to bigotry and racism and in this case terrorism. >> so as a lawmaker you know there's a process to remove these, but we've seen people across the country, in durham a statue was snatched down. they've been defaced and vand aliced. in arizona one was tard and etf he had. what would you say to those people who are taking matters into their own hands to did he face public property? >> my message is we have an obligation to do what's right, even if what's right is hard. and as a candidate for governor, it is my mission to be the kind
5:43 am
of leader who will fight for more. and that means fighting against those who want to maintain these terrible rel iks to an ugly, ugly history that continues to find its space in today's society. and so i would say to everyone that we have to call four our leaders to take action, that we have to stay consistent and persistent if we want to see our country become better. >> so what i didn't hear from you, representative, is any type of did he nuns yags or comments specifically on people defacing public property and snachg these things down without going through a process. is that something you endorse? >> again, what i'm saying is that i believe we need to have leaders who stand up and who make any of those actions unnecessary. it is critical that people who want to be in charge of our government at any level, that they take the actions necessary to stapd up for what we believe is right. i am deeply disturbed that we have a president who is condoning hatred, bigotry, who is sympathizing with domestic
5:44 am
terrorists and that's going to lead to a very strong praekz from the people. but the way you have a united states is by having the leaders that we have elected take a stand and stand firm about removing domestic terrorism monuments no matter how large or how small. >> stacey abrams, candidate for georgia gorchl or. thanks so much for being with us this morning. next hour we'll be zwroind by one of the rivals who i just quoted in the governor race michael williams who wants to keep stone mountain as it is. >> a free speech rally and protests against it are cause for concern today in boston, certainly with fierce of violence just like what we saw last weekend in charlottesville. but don't groups have a right to demonstrate as well. a constitutional attorney is weighing in on how far this can go. if you could book a flight, then add a hotel, or car, or activity in one place and save, where would you go?

people are going to be gathering in boston for what's being called a free speech rally r. they won't be the only group demonstrating. there are thousands of protestors expected to march against hate and bigotry. a counterprotestors was killed. but cnn legal analyst page peyton is here. he's a criminal defense and constitutional attorney and this is important because there is a lot of gray area here. when does hate speech cross the line into a hate crime? >> i mean, we're going to see, right. i mean, with all these protests across the country we're seeing that conflict in real time. the first amendment protects hate speech. so a group can protestor.
5:50 am
they can talk about how they hate the jews, african americans. entirely protected by the first amment. what is not protected is violent conduct, people hitting each other or threats of violent conduct. so when speech crosses the line into a threat of some sort of imminent harm or danger, then you've got a potential problem and a potential crime. >> let me ask you this. there was appear image we saw last week of some of the white supremacists who were getting ready to rally. they were holding guns and they were marching into their space there at the rally. does holding a gun, which is their second amend am right. >> that's right. >> does that move into a criminal area in some sort as you talk about a threat? >> i think it can. when we talk about protecting freedom of speech, we're talking about protecting the expression of an idea. even if the idea is something we reject as the majority of americans, you've got a right to express is that idea. but what idea are you expressing when you're giving hate speech,
5:51 am
when you're saying these things and you're carrying a firearm? are you really expressing a threat to the individuals around you who may disagree with your ideas? >> so if what you're doing is threatening people either directly or indirectly, that can possibly be a crime. it's not something the supreme court has looked at before. they've protected cross burners, flag burners, but when someone has a firearm examine at least says words that indicate they're willing to use that firearm at that location at that time, that can be a crime. >> that's something different. you know, it's interesting because the mayor of boston had stated yesterday in a press conference he didn't want to approve this and give this two-hour permit, but by law he had to. >> that's right. you know, you have to -- you can make them comply with the requirements of a permit, local ordinances, make sure it's located in a particular area, doesn't disturb traffic, things of that it that, but you cannot zrimt based on the content of the message. so if he's going to give a permit to the counterprotestors, he's got to give a permit to the
5:52 am
people who are with the alt-right or the neo-nazis. >> so let me ask you this if we would see a repeat of boston like we saw in charlottesville, is there any point where the law would come in and say, listen, this particular group that is causing this problem, can they ban them from any sort of rallies for a specific time period or is there -- look, it's their free speech. >> right. i think that's a possibility. i think if law enforcement and municipalities, if they can show a pattern of conduct, this particular group is not there to simply express an idea, they are there to cause violence, they are go to insight people to riot, if you can show a pattern of that type of activity, even though it's very difficult to do under the first amendment because you're stopping speech before this happens, and that is always frowned upon by the supreme court, but if you can show one particular group is really bent on violence, bent on threatening people and causing the type of problems that we saw in charlottesville, then, yes, i think a law that's tailored to
5:53 am
that type of activity would pass constitutional muster. >> all right. page pat, always appreciate, boy, your insight in all of this. >> thank you, christi. >> victor. we'll be right back. out getting. start at the new show me used trucks with one owner. pretty cool.
