happening now in the "newsroom," donald trump's new target john mccain. >> he's not a war hero. >> 5 1/2 years -- >> he's a war hero because he was captured. i like people who weren't captured. >> no apologies no, backing down but has trump gone too far? also bill cosby describes under oath how he seduced women, the drugs, the hush money, the promise of fame. cosby claiming he's a pretty decent reader of people. ahead, reaction from cosby accuser janice dickinson. >> i keep reliving the same sick feeling in my soul. plus inside the mind of a killer. the parents of the chattanooga shooter speak out saying their son was depressed and medicated. what it means for the investigation as five military families grieve. >> with everything going on, he wanted to help out, and being in the marine corps is where he
thought he could do the most good. >> let's talk live in the cnn "newsroom." and good morning. i'm carol costello. thank you so much for joining me. a defiant donald trump makes no apologies after igniting a political firestorm. for the very first time the target of his attack senator john mccain, is breaking his silence. but here is where the controversy began. in iowa when trump said this. >> he's not a war hero. >> he's a war hero. >> 5 1/2 years -- >> he's a war hero because he was captured. i like people who weren't captured i hate to tell you. he was a war hero because he was captured okay? you can have -- and i believe perhaps he's a war hero. >> mccain spent more than five years as a prisoner of war during the vietnam war before being shot down by enemy forces. he was tortured during that time. here is how the senator responded earlier today when
asked whether he believes trump owes him an apology. >> no i don't think so but i think he may owe an apology to the families of those who have sacrificed in conflict and those who have undergone the prison experience in serving their country. when mr. trump said he prefers to be with people who were not captured well the great honor of my life was to serve in the company of heroes. i'm not a hero but those who were my senior ranking officers people like colonel bud day, congressional medal of honor winner those that inspired us to do things that we otherwise wouldn't have been capable of doing, those are the people that i think he owes an apology to. >> any minute now we're expecting one of trump's competitors, jeb bush to address a crowd in florida. of course one of the big questions, whether he will weigh
in on this controversy. with me now, cnn's political director david chalian. good morning. >> good morning, carol. >> good morning. thank you for being with me. i appreciate it. donald trump let it rip on the "today" show when challenged about all of this. i'd like to you listen to what he said. >> would you say that to john mccain's face. >> if you go on matt see that's what you don't do -- excuse me matt because you're the media and you do the same thing. the next sentence was he is a war hero. i said that but they never want to play it and you don't want to play it. >> well why would you say the first thing? >> excuse me, you started it off -- hey, matt savannah started it off by saying i said that he wasn't a war hero. i didn't say that. and if you would have let it run just another three seconds, you would have said that -- i said very clearly he is a war hero. i have absolutely no problem with that. what i do have problems with is that he called 15,000 people that showed up for me to speak in phoenix, he called them crazies because they want to
stop illegal immigration and they were insulted. >> let me say for the record we did run the other part of your comments mr. trump. he did run the part where you said he is a war hero. so please don't say that we didn't because we did. >> well then why did savannah start off by saying i said that he was not a war hero. i never said that. i said he was a war hero matt. so you misrepresent just like everybody else. i do have a problem with what he's doing on the border. he's terrible and i do have a problem with the fact -- with the illegal immigration is a disaster and he's doing a horrible job for the vets. matt i see the vets. they come to me. these are powerful wonderful people and they're crying they don't know what to do. they're lost because of what we're doing. frankly, illegal immigrants get treated better than many of our vets. it's a disgrace what's happening in this country and john mccain has done nothing about it but talk. >> one portion where you said at the end of one comment, i like people who weren't captured.
let me just highlight that moment for a second. if you're elected president, you'll be commander in chief of this country, and they've got about 10,000 u.s. troops in afghanistan, about 3,500 serving in iraq. they face danger on a daily basis, donald and they face capture on a daily basis. >> i agree. >> do you think you have sent the wrong message to those people that if they're captured somehow donald trump, the commander in chief, is not in favor of them? >> i don't think so. i think this i do also respect greatly people that aren't captured. nobody talks about them. we talk about john mccain and i think it's great, and he is a very brave man and all of that but we don't talk about the people that weren't captured and that's what i was trying to refer to and i think i did. and by the way, if you see the news conference right afterwards a few minutes afterwards everything was perfect. i never even thought this would be an issue. my opponents have brought it up. these are guys that have zero in the polls and by the way, you said that i said i'm doing well.
i'm not saying i'm doing well. the polls are saying i'm doing well matt. when you introduced me it was said that i said i'm doing well. i didn't say that. the polls have me leading. >> okay david. you have been covering politics a long long time. what do you make of this? >> well first of all, what you saw right there, that's classic donald trump, and that combative interview taking on the media, carol, that's part of the fuel of his rise. i mean that is part of the appeal that the segment of the republican nominating electorate that is supporting donald trump that has rocketed him to the top of the polls, that's what they like this brash talk. he doesn't sound like your typical politician. so that plays right into trump's wheelhouse. >> so but, you know, there are some places you just don't go and you just don't go anywhere near what approaches criticism of veterans of war, but he did. so will he pay for that? >> he did.
and listen you can parse his exact words as he was trying to do there with matt lauer, but obviously he was questioning john mccain's war hero status right? and so what i find fascinating about what happened over the weekend is that donald trump crossed to this place that most people don't normally go and the entire republican establishment pounced. they were waiting for a john mccain misstep, not just his opponents, but the republican national committee who is sort of like the neutral arbiter inside the republican nomination contest, right? they don't pick a candidate of their own in this race and even they sort of put their thumbs on the scale and called it out of bounds. so donald trump in sort of doing this the wing of the party, the establishment wing that is very very concerned about trump's candidacy doesn't know quite how to deal with it is concerned what it's doing for the overall party brand, they pounced. now, trump supporters carol,
like i said i don't know that this is actually going to turn them off. i think sort of taking on the press in this way and being brash like this is really part of the appeal. >> all right. well thanks so much david chalian for this insight this morning. we should point out that donald trump received not one, but fi deferments that kept him from serving in vietnam according to the smoking gun which obtained selective service records for trump. one was a medical release which stemmed from a foot problem. apparently has a bone spur in his foot. let's bring in someone who supports donald trump, robert keiger. do you still support donald trump this morning? >> good morning, carol. nice to be back with you. absolutely i still support donald trump. >> why? >> you know well -- listen i liken him as the uber of the
gop. listen the establishment taxi cap drivers and the taxi cap companies absolutely hate uber. the establishment gop, the establishment republicans hate donald trump for the exact same reason. so listen, pc is gone completely and out of control in this country. >> okay. let's talk about political correctness because he did appear to be criticizing john mccain for his service in vietnam, and, you know, when trump said he's a war hero because he was captured. okay i believe perhaps he's a war hero. why even go there? should he have gone there? >> listen last week when you and i spoke you were saying he shouldn't have gone there about the illegal immigrants and if it rips the scab off some wounds to talk more about veterans affairs, how terribly these
veterans are being treated in this country, so be it. we've got to cowboy up and quit worrying about these tiny things. pc has gone out of control. martin o'malley a couple days ago said black lives matter white lives matter all lives matter. and everybody blew up. it was a terrible terrible he apologized. that's crazy. all lives do matter. white, black, brown, yellow it doesn't matter. >> you're right that did happen to martin o'malley and you have it exactly right. in the end though rocket, it comes down to what you're going to do about problems. donald trump says, hey, we have to do something about the veterans but he wrote an op-ed in "usa today" in the paper this morning, and he says he donated $1 million to build this war memorial and he also appeared in a parade for veterans in 1995. that's the extent of what donald trump has done for veterans. is that really enough?
does he have -- i mean is he right to criticize john mccain when that's the extent to which he's gone to help veterans in this country? >> i think those two things that you just said are two more things than john mccain has done for veterans. >> oh come on robert really? robert let's just focus on what donald trump has done. >> okay. okay. but i don't know anything that john mccain has done either at least donald trump helped raise $1 million to build this memorial. you know and as commander in chief -- >> he's not running against john mccain. john mccain is not running for president. >> understood. >> so let's go back -- and donald trump is. so what is he going to do for veterans? he says he's going to build all new hospitals. i think that's one of the things he said. but you know that's harder than just saying it right? so what has he done and in the end doesn't it come down to issues? >> absolutely it comes down to issues and i wish we would get
back to that. this presidency is about competency and american people let me tell you something, they love his bluntness. they need some truth, and he's not being controlled by any political -- >> i get that. i get that robert. when we run around calling people dummies and they call you an idiot back it's just so childish. doesn't it come down to i know you are but what am i or whatever children say when they call each other names? >> listen dana milbanks of "the washington post" called donald trump a fraud and a dirty rotten pig. where is the civility in that? you can talk about it on both sides of the spectrum. >> but donald trump is running for president of the united states. >> i understand that. but listen donald trump is donald trump. i'm not going to change him, you're not going to change him,
and the american people are liking the truth and honesty and the clean talk that donald trump is portraying. you know what? last week when you and i talked you said that his approval rating was terrible 23%. it's now at 57%. i said wait a few days because it's going to increase and you know what? guess what. it did. it's now at 57%. i bet if you take a poll in a couple days in iowa where he is right now second behind scott walker, it will be better. >> you could absolutely be right. >> it will be better. >> okay. we have a bet. robert kiger, thanks so much for being with me. i appreciate it. dinner next time i'm in atlanta. >> i'll take you up on that. >> okay. thank you. >> a deposition exposes even
drugs before sex and the lies he told to keep his wife, who he refers to as mrs. cosby, in the dark. he answered questions as part of a 2005 lawsuit that andrea constand brought against him for allegedly drugging and sexual assaulting her. when asked if an encounter with con stand was consensual he explained how he used nonverbal cues to determine that she welcomed sex saying, quote, i walk her out. she does not look angry. she does not say to me don't ever do that again. she doesn't walk out with an attitude or a huff because i think i'm a pretty decent reader of people and their emotions in that's romantic sexual things, whatever you want to call them. fredricka whitfield spoke with another cosby accuser, janice dickinson, last night and fredricka joins me with more on that. >> janice dickinson tells me her wounds are dope made even more painful after reading parts of cosby's deposition and she
feels right now a range of emotions from anger to vindication. did reading the details of this deposition or that knowing that it's now been unsealed and many are reading through it did that also mean that it's been an emotional journey for you just within the past 24 hours? >> yes, absolutely. there's no doubt about it. there's no way to put into words the depth of misery pain and humiliation that i have -- that i and the other women and all women and men that have gone through unconsented, nonconsensual drugs and rape it altered my behavior. my family has been embarrassed an humiliated. >> has reading this deposition
in any way kind of reopened wounds for you? has it given you a better recollection of what your account has been about what happened back in 1982? >> there's no words to even -- i'm angry. i'm confused. i don't have any healing yet that's taken place. the nightmares that occur every night. you know the sense memory the taste and the cadence of these unsealed court records or these sealed court records that have just been made public have just got me really -- i'm really
upset. >> explain to me how this has further upset you. i remember last december you described back in 1982 you were in a hotel room. you went to his room willingly and that you say that he gave you some sort of drug and when you woke up your account was you were in pain and you were certain that he raped you. when you read through this deposition now and read that he pursued young women for sex and there were quaaludes involved. how does that help your account, how does it change your account? does it add more details for you? >> it just -- i keep reliving the same sick -- the same sick feeling in my soul and in my body. the memories are still there,
and every time i think about it and i hear new information i still -- it still takes me back to that actual night like it happened yesterday. it's back in 1982 and it sickens me but i have to be strong. i have to be strong for my, you know, our daughters, our sisters, our mothers, our aunts, our cousins, i have to be strong for women. i have to do this. it's the right thing to do. the court of public opinion now believes what happened. i mean all these women were telling the same story again and again. you know underage women. no one gave this monster permission i promise you. i didn't give him permission. i can only speak for myself. >> because that is a word that he uses in this deposition that it was consensual.
>> i don't believe that fredricka. i do not believe that at all ever. i will never believe that. i can only speak with what happened to me. i did not consent to having consensual sex. how could i? i was drugged. >> and i remember you telling me that you felt there were a lot of people who doubted your story, whether it was then back in the '80s and then even along the years, but now with this deposition being revealed deposition taken ten years ago, how does this in your view validate the story that you've been telling and that of other women? >> i don't know how that works in a courtroom. i don't feel any validation. i won't feel validated until cosby and to the known women and the yet to be known women get an
apology to each and every one of us, to myself and to each and every one of us and that this mass serial rapist be put in jail for his crimes against humanity. >> and it's important to note that bill cosby has denied janice dickinson's allegations, and there are no criminal charges against him as it pertains to dickinson. the statute of limitation has run out. dickinson has an ongoing defamation lawsuit against cosby in large part because attorneys representing cosby said her story was, quote, unquote, a lie, and she says it has cost her her reputation it has cost her work and humiliation. >> fredricka whitfield, many thanks to you. i appreciate it. looks like donald trump doesn't do apologies. the presidential candidate has had every chance to apologize for what he said about john
mccain, but he will not do it. could that actually help him though? we'll talk about that next. ♪ how's it progressing with the prisoner? he'll tell us everything he knows very shortly, sir. as you were... where were we? 13 serving 14! service! if your boss stops by, you act like you're working. it's what you do. if you want to save fifteen percent or more on car insurance, you switch to geico. it's what you do. shopping online... ...is as easy as it gets. wouldn't it be great if hiring plumbers carpenters and even piano tuners... were just as simple? thanks to angie's list now it is. start shopping online... ...from a list of top rated providers. visit angieslist.com today. nothing fits, huh? not surprising... ...with that bloated belly. you got gas. i can see it and i know you feel it. get gas-x.

>> he's a war hero because he was captured. i like people who weren't captured okay? i hate to tell you. he's a war hero because he was captured. okay? you can have -- and i believe perhaps he's a war hero. >> earlier today senator john mccain weighed in on the controversy and said this on msnbc. >> when mr. trump said that he prefers to be with people who were not captured well the great honor of my life was to serve in the company of heroes. i'm not a hero but those who were my senior ranking officers people like colonel bud day, congressional medal of honor winner and those that inspired us to do things that we otherwise wouldn't have been capable of doing, those are the people that i think he owes an apology to. >> so let's talk about this. we me now cnn political commentators marc lamont hill and margaret hoover.
donald trump disrespected a veteran. usually that's the death knell. will it be for trump, marc? >> that presumes the death knell hadn't already sounded weeks ago. his candidacy is not a legitimate one -- >> he's leading in the polls. >> to the extent i don't think he can win. i disagree with people who put him on the entertainment page instead of the politics page. i think he's a real candidate but i don't think he's viable long term because i don't think the voters will support that. now it ends it. you have republicans saying this is too far. he disrespected all veterans. >> margaret, what do you think? >> here is the problem and here is what is so upsetting. there are still too many on the right, both conservative elites and republican presidential candidates who are not willing to distance themselves from trump's comments and what the right needs right now is its sister souljah moment. it was bill clinton famously in 1992 distanced himself from extremist comments on the far left. this is what the republican party needs, every candidate.
it's unfortunate you have ted cruz and mike huckabee unwilling to disassociate themselves from donald trump's comments because he still has gravity in the polls, and they know that he's going to flame out, about you they hope that they will solidify his base of support once he does fully flame out, and it's shocking that frankly, this hasn't caused the flame out yet. >> well -- >> the week is still young. i think it's going to happen this week. >> jeb bush is at tallahassee at a campaign event and did he sort of kind of bring up trump. let's listen to what he had to say. >> the pentagon's acquisition system is so swamped with regulations only a handful of giant defense contractors can actually compete for the larger contracts. that's why i support initiatives by the respective chairman of the senate and house armed services committees john mccain, a real hero by the way -- [ applause ] >> okay. so he said it but he didn't really say it. he didn't come out and say donald trump, you're wrong. john mccain is a war hero.
he sort of talked around it right? >> yeah. >> and it was so complicated at the beginning of his statement the voters were probably saying what? >> i think he fieldeels like he might not need to. he acknowledges it so he can't say he didn't weigh in but at the same time he doesn't want to dig into it. i think it's those second tier candidates who are speaking out hard because they want to gain some traction. >> that's what donald trump would say. >> jeb is in it to win it. i think he feels like he doesn't need to dignify the comments with a response but i still maintain it is time for the republican party to draw the line in the sand. if there's ever a time for red lines, it is now. this is -- i mean it's just crazy we're even talking about it, that trump has gotten this much air time on television. this man -- nobody has ever as a civilian been elected to the presidency without having been elected to other office with the
exception of herbert hoover. >> but trump is so rich and he has so much money. here is the reason though that i think -- i'm just kidding. here is the reason i think that donald trump appeals to his supporters. there was a rally over the weekend, right, and it was a liberal gathering and martin o'malley who is a democrat and running for president, he was talking about mistreatment of african-americans at the hands of police and he said -- he was booed after saying all lives matter, and i just want to play you that moment so you can hear it for yourself. >> every life matters and that is why this issue is so important. black lives matter white lives matter, all lives matter. black lives matter. white lives matter, all lives matter. >> we're going to comment on now what happened to martin o'malley in just a second but there's a
♪ cuba's foreign minister was in town to of course raise the cuban flag. you can see there's a lot of cheering and singing and applause. at the very same time in cuba an american embassy was reopened. as you know president obama normalized relations with cuba and this is such a historical moment and margaret let's just pause from our donald trump conversation -- >> thank you so much. >> -- to comment on this. >> i think what's interesting here is that, you know now we have a formal diplomatic representation both in cuba and the united states but what is unfortunate to me and i think it should be unfortunate to free people everywhere is three things didn't happen in this negotiation. what should have happened is all cuba's political prisoners should have been released. cuba should have free and fair elections and cuba should have a free and fair press, an open press. these are the demarcations of an
open society and a free society and none of these prerequisites were met or eded by the obama administration. >> we have a long way to go and i think -- >> thank god for the congress because if the embargo weren't still in place that the congress observes owns -- >> that's exactly the problem. we can with hold goods resources, and economic possibilities from the cuban people. we don't have that requirement for saudi arabia. we don't have a range of nations who have far more human rights -- >> but we have a specific history with cuba and that's tied up in the cold war and it's -- it's not about -- the embargo wasn't ever been ending communism. they were a satellite state of the ussr and the fact is there are political prisoners rotting in jail because of fidel. >> i agree with you but america has political prisoners.
all nations -- >> the united states does not have political prisoners that go into jail without any free or fair trial. they are rotting in cuban -- >> we are in agreement on the political prisoner but that's a more complicated set of relationships we have to develop. what's happened over the last 30 years after the fall of the soviet bloc has been essentially that cuban people have been the most punished by not the embargo but the block clade -- >> they have been punished by dictatorial regime -- >> by us isolated cuba -- >> we'll have to end it there. thank you so much. you can see the flag being raised at the cuban embassy in d.c. >> it's a start. >> thanks to both of you. could mental illness have made the chattanooga gunman the perfect recruit for extremists? i'll talk to a psychologist about how depression could have played a role in turning to violence.

we have new developments to report in last week's shooting rampage at the military faciles silts in chattanooga tennessee. investigators have recovered the writings of the gunman. a source says they date back over a year and reveal the anger and torment that were already taking hold. u.s. investigators are also looking to abdulazeez's mental state before he opened fire. his family claims evers bipolar. he was taking drugs and he was confused. just this morning cnn learned that writings that have been uncovered are consistent with someone having suicidal thoughts. the writings which date back to over a year ago include dissatisfaction with u.s. policy in the war on terror and other u.s. anti-u.s. sentiment.
dr. jeff guard year is the joining me. >> there were certain things he was verbalizing or thinking about where he didn't want to live. we know there was some issue with depression and noncompliance with his antidepressants or anti-anxiety. we're hearing maybe he was bipolar. did this particular attack happen when he was in a manic state and not being given his medication or taking his medication. so we know that this may, this may play a role in these horrific attacks. >> abc first uncovered these writings. i want to raet what abc had to say about them. they say a diary belonging to the gunman and fbi interviews with his parents paint a picture of a disturbed suicidal young man using drugs, preparing for bankruptcy, and facing an appearance in criminal court and then supposedly four days -- i'm
sorry, supposedly like he's due to appear in court very soon for dui. that was supposed to happen in a few days. supposedly he's having so much trouble with his job and suicidal thoughts and his job and depression so they sent him to jordan to try to help him get over this so he could spend time with family members there. perhaps that was the completely wrong thing to do. >> well perhaps the intent was the right thing, but the actual move the action in itself i believe when you're dealing with issues of feeling victimized disenfranchised, he had some of those thoughts being perhaps depressed or bipolar, all of those things perhaps may have put him at risk for being radicalized, and we see that with isis and other terror groups that they take people who are having these emotional issues who are having issues with their families, who are not happy, who are disenfranchised as i said and actually are able to turn them.
>> so what should these parents have done? i know it's a difficult -- >> it's hard to say, and this is what i can tell you. when you're dealing with a child, and perhaps, you know, we're talking -- >> he's 24. >> yeah 24 but he's still a child to his parents. but when you're dealing with someone in your family who has mental health issues and they're not compliant on their medications, not complaint with their therapy, when you're that young, it's so hard to not want to have that stigma and, therefore, for parents and i work with pashltsrents all the time carol, who are literally pulling their hair out because they can't get their kids to stay in treatment and to get help and to stay on the medications. a lot of these medications have some severe side effects, so these kids stay off of it. so that's really the issue here. so we can point fingers at everyone. we can point fingers at the parents, and allegedly there were some issue was domestic violence in the home. perhaps that had a role. we don't know at this point, but
if we blame the parents, then we can blame a whole lot of parents for what we see that the kids do. at the end of the day it really does come down to the individual and their being complaint on getting help. >> all right, dr. jeff gardere, thank you so much. >> thank you. still to come, a deadly limousine crash on a day meant for celebration. we'll talk about that. ♪ every auto insurance policy has a number. but not every insurance company understands the life behind it. those who have served our nation. have earned the very best service in return. ♪ usaa. we know what it means to serve. get an auto insurance quote and see why 92% of our members plan to stay for life.
