tv New Day Saturday CNN April 30, 2016 3:00am-6:01am PDT
you see the applause and you hear the cheers there from rescue workers as children are pulled alive from the rubble of a collapsed building in kenya. cnn is in nairobi where the death toll is climbing as crews continue to dig for survivors. anti-trump protests turn violent in california forcing donald trump to abandon his motorcade, hop a wall, and then
walk through this little field to make it to a california gop convention. multiple tornadoes touched down in texas, also in oklahoma. the latest on the threat of severe storms this weekend. it's a busy saturday. good morning and thank you for joining us this weekend. >> good morning to you. always great to start a saturday with you. we are starting this saturday with breaking news out of nairobi, kenya. a seven-story apartment building there collapsed. rescue workers and residents are working side by side. you see them moving the metal and rubble there trying to find anyone who may be alive. just a short time ago we got this video for you here. it is an incredible moment. a baby girl, you see her there dressed in pink, pulled out alive, hoisted there above the crowd. they started cheering and aploweding and the collapse happened overnight when many
people had already gone to bed. >> that's right. we know seven people are confirmed dead, dozens more are hurt. fears now that other building could come down. neighboring apartments have been evacuated. i want to get to our reporter on ot phone. robin, where do rescue efforts stand right now? >> at the moment the death toll is at seven. but the good news is that hundreds of people according to police, have been rescued. you can just see incredible pictures coming from this terrible building collapse that occurred at around 9:00 p.m. friday night inside nairobi. just to give you a bit of context, it has been pouring with rain for days. it is rainy season in kenya and there has been massive flooding across the city. people were killed in their cars, for example, once rivers overflowed. we do know that this particular area is quite low and it is
quite prone to flooding and to landslides. in fact i have covered a very tragic landslide there a few years ago where a number of people were killed when rocks landed on their shacks in that area, low-income area. just incredible pictures, as you see. seven stories and only seven dead thus far. we're hoping that the death toll does remain that low throughout the day. emergency workers having to work through that torrential rain throughout the night and into the day. kenyan defense workers also called in to try and help. they don't have the normal sort of thermal imaging or rescue dogs that you would use perhaps in the united states or if there was an earthquake in some countries that have that sort of equipment and disaster management. but what we do have here in kenya is an enormous amount of heart. you see the kenyan red cross working tirelessly to pull people from the rubble. good stories, babies being pulled. the question is how many people are buried under this rubble and
how long is it going to take rescue authorities to get to them. apparently they have been speaking on the phone to some people who are still inside and thankfully are still alive, but it is a race against time here in nairobi. >> robyn kriel reporting live on these remarkable pictures and this rush to find survivors after this building collapse in nairobi. thank you so much, robin. angry protesters outside a donald trump event. this is in burlingame, california. you see here it gets physical, pushing and shoving between protesters and the police there. you can hear the chanting. protesters saying "dump trump." all this forced donald trump's motorcade to pull over so he
could sneak in to the hotel's back entrance. you see him here on the side of the road hopping over this pathway up the embankment and acrossed the road to get into the back of that hyatt hotel. donald trump took the opportunity to talk about what happened outside that meeting. >> that was not the easiest entrance i've ever made. my wife called, she said there are respects following you and then we went under a fence and through a fence. oh, boy, felt like i was crossing the border actually. you know? it's true. >> let's bring in maria cardona, a hillary clinton supporter and democratic strategist. sco scottie hughes, radio commentator and trump surrogate. ladies, good morning to you.
sco sco scottie, start with you. for those undecided ahead of the next few contests, maybe even leaning toward donald trump, what do you say to those people who watched what happened thursday night in costa mesa and yesterday in burlingame? and we should say that these are the protests outside of the event but believe that it will be difficult, if not impossible, for donald trump to go on for six months with these types of national aesthetics and win a general election. >> well, it depends on who you're watching. are you watching the maybe thousand or hundreds that were on the outside that were jumping on police cars that might have actual grievances on it? however, the way that they're choosing to voice those grievances -- i can tell you, sitting there and watching the mexican flag being flown, i don't think they're taking the best way of putting their message forward. i think it actually might even backfire. or you watch the people inside, that peaceably are gathering and just want to hear from a potential candidate they may vote for in the california election. i think it depends right now on actually who you're watching who has the better way of delivering
their message. there might be some actual grievances the latino community has with mr. trump's plan, however these scenes we are seeing is the not the best way to get them across. they have the right to gather, but to peaceably gather, ghot n cause physical or violent damage and attack trump supporters. >> maria, michael smerconish was on live as this was happening yesterday. he said for many people when they see this happening outside of a trump event and the attempt to stop him from speaking, that will embolden his message and help him. your concerns there. >> sure, it will embolden his message and it will embolden his supporters. that's what we have seen from the moment that he jumped on to the political scene. but what it won't do, it won't bring people together and make them think that this is the best person to become our commander in chief. our commander in chief, the president of the united states, should be somebody that is
bringing people together, that is exactly the opposite of what mr. trump has done from the moment he came on to the scene, the day that he announced his candidacy, calling mexican immigrants rapists. and i could go on from there in terms of the insults of the different groups of people that he has denigrated, that he has insulted. and so this is a huge problem i think for the gop moving forward. there is a reason why there is a never trump movement. because they know that having donald trump as the standard bearer for the republican party who is in desperate need of growing the demographics within the country to be able to support their party to be able to get to the white house -- and i can name you latinos, women, young people, african-americans, multi-cultural americans. these are the demographics that he has time and again insulted. there's no way that he has the path to the white house without
growing. >> one of the person he insulted was hillary clinton and hillary clinton spoke with our jake tapper about some of those criticisms. here's what she said. >> i have a lot of experience dealing with men who sometimes get off the reservation in the way they behave and how they speak. i'm not going to deal with their temper tantrums or their bullying or their efforts to try to provoke me. he can say whatever he wants to say about me. i couldn't really care less. >> that was in response to one of jake's questions about donald trump's characterization of secretary clinton as "crooked hillary." we saw that low-energy jeb bush, little marco, lyin' ted, those things stuck. is that the most effective response, do you believe, maria, to ignore those criticisms? >> i don't think she was ignoring them. i actually think she was answering them in a pretty direct manner but in a way that makes her look above board and
above the ugly, disgusting, divisive political rhetoric that he's using. he's -- she's using it to focus on her actual message because what she continues to say is that she doesn't care if he insults her. she can take it. she's been in this business for more than 30 years. she's a big girl. she's been knocked down and she's been getting up every single time. >> gotcha. >> but what her focus is, is that she will be there to speak up for all those women who he also speaks about and insults. and they're the ones who need a voice. >> i've got to get to scottie very quickly here. is this different because now you're dealing with hillary clinton? you're dealing with a female opponent? we saw what happened this week after his use of the word -- the phrase "the woman card." >> that's the double standard hillary clinton's trying to invoke. don't say you want to be counted equal as a man when you pull this gender card, "i only deal with men." i would have had more respect for her statement if she'd have
set gender neutral and men and women have thrown tell ter tantrums. she's already attacking mr. trump as a man. these is exist which is what i think you'll see her main type of deflection in criticism of her, it is the gender card she plays. not mr. trump. >> thanks so much. up next, a milestone for donald trump and his delegates in the count surpassg the 1,000 mark. the focus is on indiana. why the hoosier state is critical in this quest for the nomination and ted cruz says it could all come down to this state. >> he's calling it a cliff for his own campaign. also people in the plains waking up to piles of debris. lot of damage this morning after tornadoes ripped through the heartland last night.

but you can count on our 1,000 americas and canadas best value inns for room discounts, upgrades, instant rewards, and a home town touch. hillary clinton says she couldn't care less about those taunts from donald trump. brushing off the accusation that she is playing the woman card. and some of those nicknames, like crooked hillary. in an exclusive interview with our colleague, jake tapper, she also hinted at how she plans to get bernie sanders supporters behind her if she wins the nomination. i want to bring in cnn political commentator and political anchor for time warner cable news, erroll louis. talk about those comments clinton made, those "off the reservation" comments saying she knows how to deal with those kinds of men who go off reservation. of course she didn't mention any names here. do you think that was intentional that she kind of left it vague? >> i think it's probably the sum
total of a long career in which she's had to encounter, who knows what, you know? i'm sure you've got stories. i don't know a professional woman anywhere, including my three older sisters, who doesn't have a whole treasure trove of stories of this, that and the other. this there is an entire archive on the way of sexist comments directed toward hillary clinton. it includes one little nugget that we've all forgotten from 2007 when there was an entire set of coverage, like 20 minutes of coverage, over the "cleavage" she was showing because of the blouse she wore on a particular day. she has been subjected i think over the years to any number of different strange comments, habits, all kinds of discrimination. some subtle, some overt. that's all i took from it. anybody who has spent time in the u.s. senate knows that it is very much an old boys club,
literally. >> not only being in the u.s. senate, but also being in secretary of state where she is going and interacting with world leaders, including people like vladimir putin. so you could say that that comment may apply to some of them. you never know. but you mentioned her gender, as we were just discussing the answer. the last segment victor spoke with a trump supporter. she said that clinton's comment was sexist and specifically targeting men. do you agree? >> no. >> flat-out no. >> i understand the role of surrogates and it is to sort of defend their candidate no matter what. in this case i think the weight of facts is so far on one side, the weight of history is so far on one side, the notion that men are being discriminated against, poor billionaire donald trump being discriminated against? no, sorry. >> let's move forward and talk about the democratic race as it stands. sanders we know taking a little break from his campaign stops in indiana. clinton also taking a break but
she does have her husband in the state campaigning still. do you think this is just a break right now for both campaigns or are we seeing a new day as a democratic race, essentially bernie sanders throwing in the towel here? >> i think it is both actually. in the case of hillary clinton, i think as she tries to pivot and get ready for a general election campaign that she thinks she will be the nominee participating in, i think we're going to start to get a little taste of the extraordinary number of high-powered, high-level surrogates that she's going to have at her disposal. if you think about the notion of, say, a michelle obama out campaigning for hillary clinton, of a joe biden out campaigning for hillary clinton, bill clinton himself out there for the ticket, the democrats i think are going to have a pretty impressive lineup going in to the general election. so i think we're going to start to see more and more of that. as far as bernie sanders, he's got some really hard decisions to make. when you fire hundreds of campaign workers, the morale
among the remaining staff is really pretty shattered. he's got to build that up. he's got to get ready for the convention. he says he's going into the convention with either an audacious plan to snag the nomination or a plan to change the platform of the democratic party. either way, that's going to take some thinking and you can't do that if you're out on the campaign trail day after day. >> i wish we had more time to discuss the strategy on the democratic side moving forward but we'll save that for another segment, erroll louis, thanks for being with us. be sure to watch jake tapper's exclusive interview with hillary clinton sunday on "state of the union." the candidates join jake at 9:00 eastern only on cnn. when we come back, homes lipped apart as path of destruction from oklahoma to texas. severe storms spawned several tornadoes. plus, taking his comedy and satire from late night to the white house. cnn talking with comedian larry

now. storms moving through the central u.s. triggered tornadoes in texas and oklahoma. look at this, the damage here from a city about an hour south of oklahoma city. you see here several of the homes destroyed there. >> a tornado also reported in lindale texas, two people reported there east of dallas. according to kltv, the county has been declared a disaster
area. downed trees and power lines still block roads. >> as storms return today it could bring flash flooding to an area that's already dealt with so much flooding -- houston. >> it is reeling from the effects of all that record setting rainfall earlier this month. what can we expect next? >> houston already has had its wettest april on record. we still have another day to go. the severe weather from yesterday brought us a total of 65 hail reports, 51 damaging wind reports and a total of at least six tornado reports. again, they have yet to actually survey the damage to find out what strength some of those tornadoes will be. they'll do that later on today. current radar, notice we still have very active weather including a watch box that's in effect. look at all of the lightning stretching from. kentucky all the way down towards austin, texas. a lot of lightning. even though necessarily tornadoes may not be the biggest threat for this morning, that's
going to wait until we get later on in the day. we still have had tornado warnings so far this morning. the threat again stretches from st. louis over to louisville, nashvil nashville, new orleans. for large hail, damaging winds and again, yes, the threat for isolated tornadoes. but there is also the threat, guys, for flooding as well for a lot of these areas that have already been inundated by flooding so far this month. >> no rest for the weary. thanks for keeping us posted, allison chinchar. coming up, confronted in california. what john kasich said when asked if he thinks people are born gay. plus, it could be the last stand during the primaries for the stop trump movement. the looming indiana contest. we're going to detail trump's paths to the nomination in a moment.

you may want to circle may 3rd on your calendar. that's this tuesday, of course. the republican presidential race. fittingly coming to a crossroads of america, indiana. >> 57 delegates up for grabs there. with donald trump now having crossed that 1,000-delegate milestone, if he wins the hoosier state, he could stomp out potentially any threat of a convention fight with ted cruz or john kasich. watch this. >> contested conventions haven't happened in a while. but there's nothing untoward about them. >> remember, of the ten
republican contested conventions, seven times the person going in there didn't have the majority of the delegates. >> for weeks the political discussion has been dominated by talk of a contested convention, but thanks to a clean sweep in last week's east coast primaries, the republican presidential nomination is now tantalizingly close for donald trump. according to our political number crunchers, he needs to win 49%, or 246 of the remaining 502 delegates to lock up the nomination. >> get out there on tuesday and vote! >> reporter: a clean sweep in indiana this tuesday where 57 delegates are at stake would bring him even closer to 1,237. but it will not be until the final day of the primary calendar, june 7th, when california allocates its 172 delegates when trump will know if he's done enough. scenario two, if trump's momentum dips and he can only muster 40% of the remaining
delegates, he would finish short of 1,237. that would lead to a contested convention. he would still be going in with a strong position, however, because unbound delegates, or in some states delegates allocated to candidates who have dropped out, could vote for trump and put him over the top on the first ballot. then there's scenario number three in which trump's momentum stalls at around 30%. that would leave him some 100 delegates shy of the magic number and in that situation a contested convention will most likely go beyond the first ballot. in a second round of voting, more than half of the delegates will be unbound according to state delegate rules. if no one wins the second ballot, then most of the delegates will be freed. then the real deal making behind the scenes begins. >> john kasich believes his strongest card in that deal is that the latest polls showing him -- more than a dozen now -- of being the only candidate left in the gop primary who can beat hillary clinton. john kasich today is campaigning
and taking that message to san jose, california. the ohio governor facing tough questions about his stance on discrimination and marriage equality during a town hall in the bay area on friday. >> he made some comments that are really getting a lot of buzz this morning. kasich was repeatedly asked by a san francisco resident whether he thought people were born gay. listen to his response. >> i believe in traditional marriage. i just went to a gay wedding. buddy of mine just got married. my wife and i went to the wedding. it was great. it was fine. >> but do you feel people are born gay? >> i'm not going to get into all the animal cyst or this or that. >> it's not analysis. are people born gay? >> our next question. >> you know, sir? probably? i don't know how it all works. okay? i mean, look. are they? you know, in all probability they are. >> don't we deserve -- >> background here, the man who
asked that question said he was concerned about the recent state laws that are written to protect religious freedom and a lot of people are viewing them, especially in the lgbt community, as discriminatory. >> ted cruz' running mate, carly fiorina, says voting for john kasich is throwing your vote away. last night erin burnett asked the ohio governor for a response. this weakening divide and conquer deal between governor kasich and the ted cruz campaign. here's his response. >> deal, alliance, whatever term you want to use. ted cruz was going to focus on indiana, you were going to focus elsewhere. he and his running mate, carly fiorina, were in indiana today. they talked about you. they said something that i want to get your reaction to what she had to say. she said anyone who votes for you is wasting their vote. here she is. >> just to be clear, a vote for john kasich is a vote for donald trump. because john kasich has absolutely no path to the nomination, not now, not at a
contested convention. john kasich is throwing your vote away. >> throwing their vote away. i mean if you're in indiana, do you say to indiana voters, if you want to stop trump, the best thing to do is vote for ted cruz? don't throw your vote away on john kasich? >> i don't say anything. but let me point out something to you. i don't want to go back and forth with the cruz campaign, but ted cruz said when you cannot mathematically win, you should get out. he cannot mathematically win. and he will not be the nominee. what we've been able to do is to say, you spend your resources where you think you can do best, i'll spend my resources where i think i can do best for the entire purpose of keeping hillary clinton from being president of the united states. i'm not going to comment anymore on carly or cruz or anything else. i have other things to do. >> apparently backing down the rhetoric, it seals. >> yes. later this morning we'll talk with the cruz campaign and the kasich campaign about this deal
as governor kasich describes it, and if that was a mistake. switching gears, still to come here on "new day," protests and anger really brewing on the campus of brigham young university who say they were sexually assaulted and then punished by the university after reporting their attack. now students and the community rallying behind the victims. >> that's them again not believing us. >> i don't know why they even feel the need to do a study. . there's overwhelming evidence. so many people have come forward. >> it is just a school whose policies are very messed up right now and aren't in line with what love and mercy is.

this morning, brigham young university is under fire over how it handles reports of sexual assault and rape that are made to the school's title 9 office. we talked to a number of young women who say they were victims sexual violence and say they were then punished by the university after reporting their attacks. >> they had taken photos and videos during the rape and he threatened me to expose those. he started touching himself. i tried to get up and leave. >> i have strict lines you're not crossing and he didn't care about those. >> i was just sitting there crying saying i don't want to report, i can't do this, what if byu finds out. >> reporter: their stories of rape and sexual assault, traumatic and horrifying. >> what does it take for us to change the way we address sexual assault? >> reporter: but it's what
happened after their school found out that's sparking outrage. brooke's nightmare began in february 2014. she said she had taken hallucinogenic drugs before being assaulted. >> over the course of the next 45 minutes like in different ways he raped me. >> reporter: she reported it to police but too afraid to face her alleged attacker in court decided not to press charges. three months later she told her school. brigham young university. >> i thought it would be a simple process to report him and have him be kicked out. >> because he is a student. >> yeah. he was a student there. >> reporter: but instead of getting support, brooke was suspended. byu, a private university, run by the mormon church, determined brooke had violated its honor code. a student code of conduct that prohibits the use of illegal drugs and alcohol, as well as premarital sex. >> i waited about four days to report. because i was scared of my standing at byu. >> reporter: mattie only reported her alleged rape to police. it happened off campus so she
was shocked when she got a call from byu's title 9 office which investigates sexual harassment and sexual violence. >> what she essentially said on that phone call was we received a police report and in it, a, we think you may have been raped, and, b, it looked like you probably violated the honor code as well. i felt so betrayed because they read every single thing that happened to me and they just kind of didn't care. >> reporter: in fact, she says now she's facing backlash from byu for not answering all their questions. her attorney told her not to until after her criminal trial this fall. the school won't let her register for future classes until she cooperates with the honor code office. >> there would never be an honor code review for reporting sexual assault, for being a victim of sexual assault. how does that victim then end up being disciplined by the honor code office? >> i wouldn't know, i wouldn't be able to speculate on any one
situation. >> reporter: while the school can't talk about specific cases, it did issue this additional statement saying, in part, sometimes in the course of an investigation, facts come to light that a victim has engaged in prior honor code violations. in all honor code proceedings the university strives for fairness, sensitivity and compassion. the university's overriding concern is always the safety and well being of its students. >> i think their first and foremost priority is protecting the university. it's not protecting the students. >> i see you shaking your heads. >> yeah. they've made that very clear. >> reporter: since barney went public with her story, other victims have felt empowered to share theirs. >> you're not reporting someone else, you're reporting yourself when you go in. like that's at least my perception of the title 9 office. like you are presumed to be guilty. >> as soon as they got legal documents saying that my rapist had been convicted, that's when they gave me accommodations and helped me withdraw from classes and they didn't offer any of that until they had the court
documentation. >> reporter: anger is growing. >> i'm a sexual assault survivor. i was raped here in this community. while i was attending byu. >> did you report it? >> no, i did not, for this exact reason. >> you were too afraid. >> yes. >> reporter: a protest march was gone through campus with a petition. >> i'll be happy to take these and we'll personally deliver them to the president. >> reporter: the university says it is now studying current practices and procedures. >> want to look at the relationship between the title 9 office and the honor code office. we want to look at whether and how information is shared. we want to look at the perception that students have. >> it's not a perception. it's something that's actually happening and that's them again not believing us. >> i don't know why they even feel the need to do a study. like there's overwhelming evidence. so many people have come
forward. >> it's just a school whose policies are very messed up right now and aren't in line with what love and mercy is. >> reporter: for a lot of the people we talked to, this study the school is doing just isn't good enough. they want action and mattie barney just last week filed an official complaint against byu with the department of education's office for civil rights, essentially asking federal officials to investigate what happened to her and others at byu. we'll be right back. my family c i did my ancestrydna. the most shocking result was that i'm 26% native american. i had no idea. it's opened up a whole new world for me.
here's the plan. you want a career and a family, but most of the time you feel like you're trying to wrangle a hurricane. everything is hectic. and when the boys aren't eating, they're fighting. and the rest of the time, they are asleep and you can finally something done. you're tired all the time. but somehow, even sleeping is hard. then one day, hr schedules a meeting with you out of the blue, and you immediately know what it is. it's the worst 19 minutes of your career. but you don't sweat it, because you and your advisor have prepared for this. so when the best offer means you are moving to the middle of nowhere,
the boys say they hate the idea, but you pretend it's not so bad. at first, you miss the energy of the city. but after a while, you prefer the crickets. and years later, when they've brought their kids, and dogs, and laundry home for thanksgiving, and one of them says what he's thankful for most is this house, you realize you didn't plan for any of this, but you wouldn't have done it any other way. no matter who you are or where you end up in life, with the right financial partner, progress is possible.
washington at least -- >> i am somebody! i just didn't get an invitation. >> no, you didn't get an invite? >> no, i didn't. >> it must have gotten lost in the mail. to the annual white house correspondents dinner. it is one of the few occasions where journalists, politicians, celebrities, everybody, kind of mix ofs it up while the president holds court, so to speak. it is also the final dinner of its kind for president obama. >> yeah. tonight's host is comedian larry wilmore. our john berman sat down with him to talk about getting ready for what could prove to be one of the biggest nights and one of the toughest nights of his career. >> there is true. they're replacing andrew jackson who was a notoriously pro-slavery president, as well as the most blood thirsty racist in the jackson five. true. >> reporter: larry wilmore knows it is way easier to win the nightly show crowd than to win the most fickle audience in show biz/washington. >> it is the most narcissistic room ever.
journalists, politicians and hollywood. and the president. there you go. that room could explode just from the narcissism alone. >> reporter: but when it comes to the white house correspondents' dinner, the explosion is worth the risk. >> something that i really wanted to do and if i did it, i really did want to do it for this president. and i thought the time might have expired for that. so to sneak in there at the end was very cool. >> reporter: the last such dinner for the first black president starring an african-american comic. let's be clear about what black face actually is. wilmore knows it is historic. >> you say you like the president but you didn't support him because of his policies. you supported him because he was black. >> because of the policy that he is black. >> how has he delivered on that? >> i think he's been excellent in it. i think he's actually increased the policy of blackness over the past year-and-a-half, i would say. he has released the black. >> reporter: a classic answer
from the 54-year-old comic, both deliberately funny and deadly serious. >> if it feels like the nightly show is getting a little repetitive, i completely agree. at this point my writing staff just has to fill in the names. they barely even show up to work anymore. >> reporter: 15 months after he took over the time slot on "comedy central" vacated buy steven kcolbert, "the new york times" says he is less preoccupied with humor than anyone else who's ever occupied a mock news chair. >> sometimes i'm not agrfraid t provide so the glibness and to tell a story and find humanity in the story and find the comedy out of that. sometimes it works the other way around. when you cover a story about a man getting shot in the back by a cop because he's trying to run away, there's nothing funny in that. how do you cover something like that? how many of these murders aren't caught on camera? >> people got their panties in a
bunch. >> reporter: he applies that same sometimes frank, sometimes funny take to his views about the election which are admittedly liberal. >> will you say your show trends left? trends more pro-democratic policies? >> i would say probably especially with the issues we tend to take on because a lot of them are cultural issues. >> i want to throw out a candidate's name. there are five left. let me know if you have a first impression. i say bernie sanders, you say -- >> i say scrappy. >> i say ted cruz, you say -- >> i say creepy. >> i say hillary clinton. >> hillary clinton? i say trying to find it. >> john kasich? >> john kasich? i would say -- oh, man. >> this is the problem with john kasich right now. a lot of people are struggling. >> that is the problem. that is the problem.
>> donald trump. >> donald trump? unbelievable. in every way. >> black people supporting trump? >> reporter: correspondents' dinner, wilmore is promising all jokes delivered with the skill and experience of more than 20 years acting, writing and producing on shows ranging from "in living color," to "the bernie mack show," to starring as the senior black correspondent on "the daily show." >> larry, what do you say to those people? >> oh, i don't know, jon. i would say they should probably go [ bleep ] themselves? >> reporter: and this weekend, all targets are fair game. >> take a look at the whole obama/saudi arabia thing. >> reporter: including, or especially, the president. >> no free pass because this is his last dinner? >> i have to keep it 100. this is the last dinner. what are they going to do? not enough time to seek the irs after me. very little time. maybe i shouldn't say that on tv. but that's part of the fun.
but it's all good-natured fun. >> reporter: the hardest part, he says, having to follow the president on stage. a president now experienced at telling jokes. >> and donald trump is here. still. >> you think you'll laugh at him or you try not to laugh? >> oh, i'll completely laugh. you don't want to lower expectations? >> oh, no, no. plus it will help me not to be too nervous. you get rid of that air. hahaha, that was funny, mr. president. hahaha. >> i think it is refreshing to see that he takes his job so seriously. >> very seriously. >> we hope you'll join us for cnn's special coverage of the white house correspondents' dinner. cnn's political reporters mixing it up with some of the hottest names in hollywood and washington. our coverage begins tonight at 7:00 eastern right here on cnn. >> it's interesting, you saw that clip of last year's dinner where president obama was making a joke at the expense of donald trump. he knew something donald trump
that no one else knew, that in just a couple of months he was going to launch his candidacy for president. he's just a few hundred delegates now from wrapping up the gop nomination. coming up in the next hour, we've got new details in the investigation of prince's death. they include reports of several emergency calls from his paisley park compound. we've got cnn's sara seidner there in chanhassen, minnesota. the latest live in just a employment. it's intelligent enough to warn of danger from virtually anywhere. it's been smashed and driven. it's perceptive enough to detect other vehicles on the road. it's been shaken and pummeled. it's innovative enough to brake by itself, park itself and help you steer. it's been in the rain... and dragged through the mud. the 2016 gle. it's where brains meet brawn. lease the gle350 for $599 a month at your local mercedes-benz dealer.

there was obvious signs of abuse. >> the details of this story are just deflating. they're heartbreaking. police were alerted by reports of a child crying. then they found in the middle of the night two badly injured toddlers tied up like dogs behind a home in san antonio. six other children were in the house. no adults there but the mother of the children in that home was eventually arrested and charged. she was believed to be responsible for those toddlers. their father has not been charged yet. all of the children were immediately turned over to protestive services. the toddlers were taken to the hospital. the girl is in intensive care. the emergency call that led to the discovery of prince's unconscious body in his minneapolis home was the fourth emergency call from the singer's estate in less than three years. sheriff's department records show paramedics were called to this address once in 2013, and twice last year. the pentagon says it will
formally complain to russia about the "unsafe and unprofessional actions" of one of its pilots. the russian su-27 fighter first came within 25 feet of a u.s. reconnaissance plane in international airspace over the baltic sea. the pilot then performed a dangerous barrel roll over the top of the u.s. plane and came down on the other side. pentagon says this is the second such incident this month. take a look at this tower of poached elephant tusks and other illegal animal parts will be set ablaze today in kenya. this will turn more than 100 tons of ivory into ash meant to highlight kenya's poaching crisis. those tusks represent 8,000 elephants that were killed to sell their ivory on the black market. >> mayor problem across that part of africa. >> across the country and the world really. a lot of news to get to this morning. >> next hour of your "new day" starts right now.
hello again. thanks so much for joining us. en's ana today brar ra in for christi paul. >> i'm victor blackwell. let's start with this. look at this chaotic scene when hundreds of demonstrators stormed towards the california republican convention yesterday to protest donald trump ahead of his speech. him and his entourage, secret service in tow, got out of the cars, abandoned the motorcade, climbed that embankment, crossed the street and walked into the hotel's back entrance. we'll have more on that in just a moment. but first, what happens to prince's estimated $300 million estate? >> a court hearing on monday will start to lead to an answer to that question. but it will be complicated. really complicated process because prince's sister says he did not leave behind a will. cnn's sara seidner is live in chanhassen, minnesota.
sara, good morning to you. this comes as law enforcement source tells cnn that prince had prescription painkillers on him when he died. >> yeah, that source said that he had on his person and also that they were in the house, as well. we also learned what happened here at paisley park at this compound over the past five years when it comes to service calls to law enforcement. there were 47 service calls to law enforcement, four of which were medical emergency calls. one of those of course was the day that prince was found dead inside the elevator. but the other three, we were trying to ascertain exactly what they were. we know that he puts on parties here, for example. so it doesn't necessarily mean that they were for prince himself. but there is a lot of concern now after hearing from sources that there were opioid based pain medication on prince's person and so there is a lot of looking into that at this very point in time. we do know -- we have learned, ascertained, at least one of
those medical calls had something to do with the parties that he puts on for the public here, called during one of those parties and prince wasn't involved. now it is a question of what were the other two medical calls here. all the rest of the calls were things like suspicious activity or harassing phone calls. so investigators are looking into all of that at this time. big question is exactly what was in prince's system, exactly what killed prince, and that information we may not know for the next several weeks as they work through the details on the toxicology report. victor, ana. >> sara, we know that the death of a person inside their home, they're there alone, is typically the work of the local police department or county sheriff's office. but we understand that the feds are joining in this investigation. do we know why specifically. >> reporter: yes. the drug enforcement administration has been called in by local sheriffs authorities who have been investigating this. alongside them they are going to work together on this. that may have a lot to do and tell you something about this
opioid medication. in this country, the de. a has been very, very, very loud and clear that there is an epidemic for these opioid pain-based medications. these medications are often used for severe pain, but they are very easy to get addicted to. this country certainly has an addiction to those medications. and this happens to be the day when they are trying to tell people, look, if you have extra medication, like hydrocodone or oxycontin, that you don't need it still in your cupboard. please send it in. this is your time to be able to get that out of your home, out of the reach of anyone who might be addicted to it, out of the reach of children. so they're really pushing forward for that. they are working on the front lines to stop this epidemic of addiction to these opioid based painkillers. we still don't know and want to be very clear about this what happened to prince, whether it had anything t do with whether he was taking any of those opioid based medications.
but a source does tell us that they indeed found some of those medications in his home on his body and we're learning from investigators no you that so far they have not been able to find evidence that he actually had a prescription for the pills that they found on him and in his home. we are continuing to look into the story. >> as you pointed out earlier, we have to wait for those toxicology reports and those typically can take several weeks to come back. sara seidner outside of paisley park, thanks so much. we'll be talking more about this opioid epidemic throughout the morning. ahead, a dea officer explains the challenge of trying to fight something that nearly 2 million people in this country are struggling with. well, we can't go a day without talking politics and donald trump taking a break from campaigning today. his last couple of events, however, have ignited some fierce protests in california. this was the scene there outside the california state convention
for the republican party yesterday. he had trouble even getting there after hundreds of angry demonstrators, as you can see, blocked the road, even clashed with police at times. this forced donald trump to then sneak in the back way. didn't seem to faze trump too much. he actually joked about the situation saying he felt like an illegal immigrant crossing the border trying to get in. he took a moment also to mention he has now crossed the 1,000 delegate milestone. listen. >> we're going to hopefully close this thing out fairly soon. i think that now that we cracked the 1,000 number, which is great. right? no, it's great. you know, it's interesting though, i'm up by 400 or so delegates. i'll be up by more than 500 when it is over and we'll be up by 5 million votes. okay? we're going to break this coming week we break the all-time record. >> i with a'nt ant to bring in
producer kristin holmes. we now ted cruz is now set to address that same crowd at the gop state convention in california today. what does cruz need to do to slow down trump? can he at this point? >> well, let's start with what he is going to do today in california. campaign insiders tell us that he's also going to be giving a similar message to trump of unity only the difference is cruz might say that trump is -- that he's the only one who can unite the party, that trump cannot unite the party. other kind of story lines we've been hearing lately from cruz in indiana, while he has been campaigning, have been that trump is the ultimate washington insider, that he is a bully. those are all things that we can look forward to today to having cruz say. additionally we have to look ahead to tuesday which is the indiana primary. how that's going to go. it was long thought that cruz was going to sweep indiana and now the polls are showing trump in the lead. that is where cruz needs to be. that's where he needs to be campaigning, that's where he
needs to be talking to people. he did get the governor's endorsement, governor mike pence there in indiana. but he's going to spend a lot of time trying to get support, bringing mike pence on the road with him to campaign events. that's 57 delegates. as you said, trump's numbers are up so those are delegates much needed for the cruz campaign. >> how much is indiana make or break for trump to reach that 1,237 threshold? >> actually, they're downplaying indiana. it is not make or break at all. it is only 57 delegates and it is not winner take all. this is cruz's to lose, but we have seen that trump is paying for negative ads there which we know he doesn't pay for ads in every single state that he goes to. but as soon as -- as we go to this detail of the delegates i'm going to let my colleague, tom foreman, break down how that delegate map works. >> trump could prove to be a record breaker in this gop
primary season. he already has roughly 10.1 million votes cast for him in all the primaries and caucuses, and there are only about 80% done. that compares very favorably to the total primary and caucus votes for some other recent contenders. mitt romney, for example, had 10.1 million votes. john mccain, 9.9 million votes. and george w. bush, 12.6 million votes. that's more, yes, but by the time the season is done, trump very well could hit that number. granted, everyone here had a lot of people running against them when they started their campaigns. but, in the case of these three, the most robust competition dropped off earlier than it has against donald trump so you can argue that he's actually won these votes while fighting longer and harder through a denser pack of contenders. he does, however, have to bring over a lot more support if he's going to go to the general election if he becomes the nominee. look at this. yes, he has 10 million or so
votes out there so far, but ted cruz has almost 7 million. john kasich, more than 3.5 million. all the others combined, almost 5 million. wrap that all together and what you have is more than 15 million people who have voted in the republican primary and caucus process who do not support donald trump. if he really wants to become the nominee and wants to make history, he's going to have to get an awful lot of those people up into his camp. >> our thanks to tom foreman and kristin holmes. ahead on your "new day," a deadly build collapse in kenya. you've got to see the pictures here coming in of survivors being pulled from the rubble, even a young baby being pulled out. others still fear trapped though. plus, more politics. and the negative trump ad against ted cruz about outsourcing jobs in indiana. but is it effective given the state's history on jobs? and later, president obama scheduled to meet this 8-year-old flint, michigan girl after she wrote a letter to the
president about the water crisis there. i spoke with her and her mother. we'll hear from them just ahead. >> i think it is going to give people hope. i mean personally i think it is going to make her feel like her voice really can make a difference, she can make a change and she can help her entire city. is better for your skin than wearing no makeup at all? neutrogena® cosmetics.

he has no path to victory. it's impossible for him to win with the votes. the only way he can possible win is if things go terribly wrong and he goes through the back door and he bought all of these delegates and i will never use the word "bribe." i would never use a word like bribe! so if he bribed the delegates, but i don't call it bribed. >> he says he didn't use the word but he said it three or four times. donald trump calling ted cruz a cheat who might bribe his way to the nomination. three days ahead of the indiana primary he's also released a new ad slamming cruz for what he
calls job-killing deals. we'll talk about that in just a moment with jeffrey lord, cnn political commentator, a former reagan white house commentator, a supporter of donald trump. i think anybody who watches cnn knows that. good morning. ben, start with you. what ted cruz said on fox news -- let's play that. >> it gives me great comfort that this primary is going to be decided by the midwestern common sense of the hoosierstate. >> the primary's going to be decided by the hoosier state. ben, if senator cruz does not do well, should that wrap up his campaign and will it effectively wrap up the cruz campaign? >> well, i think ted cruz is a realist. he realizes that indiana is the place where they are probably going to decide exactly who the nominee is going to be. obviously delegate numbers
matter ultimately, but this is a place ted cruz is going all in. that's part of the reason he decided to bring carly fiorina on the campaign and do it in the state so they could have two events at the same time with two different people out there representing the campaign. they also understand there is a vulnerabilities of donald trump and those vulnerabilities in the hoosier state are, one, among women. many women find the rhetoric of donald trump to be incredibly text sexist. the other issue is the issue of jobs. because i think as much as donald trump wants to claim he's going to bring jobs back to america he's not done that. in fact he's done the complete opposite of that with his own business dealings. he exports everything he possibly can with his own personal business. so those are two arguments that are going to be made. i think very clearly on tuesday. carly will be a part of that and i think ted cruz understands it is important right now. >> the trump campaign down playing indiana a bit. ted cruz has now named his running mate, has this deal with john kasich that kasich will
clear the path for him there. what's the expectation heading into tuesday of how well donald trump will do? can he win indiana? >> sure, he can win indiana. but the key thing here is, even if he doesn't win indiana, he is still well positioned to win. he's very much ahead in new jersey. he's ahead in california. this is going to go -- could go all the way to june 7th. that's entirely possible. on the other hand, if he does win indiana, that's pretty much it for ted cruz. there's just not going to be much room for him to go anywhere after that. >> let me come to you with this endorsement yesterday from indiana governor mike pence. let's watch it. he did it on a radio show. we'll talk on the other side. >> i've come to my decision about who i'm supporting. i'm not against anybody but i will be voting for ted cruz in the upcoming republican primary. i see ted cruz as a principled conservative who's dedicated his career to advocating the reagan
agenda. and i'm pleased to support him. >> so, ben, governor pence didn't endorse ted cruz alongside cruz and fiorina. he said he isn't against anybody. he actually praised donald trump, it looked as if he was checking notes there for the reason he was endorsing. was this enthusiastic enough to sway anybody? >> well, look. he ultimately said i'm voting for ted cruz and i'm not voting for donald trump. >> he also said -- he also urged other hoosiers to make up their own mind. he didn't even ask anybody to join him. >> i think he's a governor that understands this is a very divisive primary. the entire state is heavily involved in this and he's probably being a little bit smart and being tempered in the way he does things only because he doesn't want to alienate his own supporters when he's up for re-election. trump supporters are very intense supporters. if they're mad at you, they hate you. i get it every single day.
jeffrey, you know how much crap i take on twitter just for even questioning donald trump. this is a governor who ultimately said very clearly, "i am going to vote for ted cruz. i think he is a regan conservative." in other words, i'm not buying what donald trump is telling. -- is selling. so i do think this is a big endorsement. one of the reasons why he did the radio show was because he knew it would have a huge impact. radio station has a large audience of conservative voters and he decided to take it to the voters directly in his state and not do some big grand event. he did it to the people that are going to vote, not to a bunch of people that aren't going to vote. >> jeffrey, go ahead. >> yeah. one of the things that governor pence is very cautiously walking around here is all this support for donald trump. i live here in pennsylvania where we had our primary. donald trump -- we have 67 counties in pennsylvania. donald trump carried all 67 of
them. i have to tell you as a pennsylvanian, i can find no precedent in either the republican or democratic party where any candidate for president or state wide office ever carried all 67 counties. what that says is of course there are millions of people out there who believe in donald trump and agree with his message. so governor pence correspondingly is clearly well aware of this. as ben says, he has his own political future to consider. you don't want to get on the wrong side of these folks. >> there are many gop politicians who will find themselves in difficult positions moving forward who will be on the ballot in november and those who will not be. jeffrey lord, ben ferguson, thanks so much. >> thanks, victor. thanks, ben. >> we didn't have time to get to the ad. we'll try to get to it later in the show. ted cruz is jake tapper's zbegu on sunday. 9:00 a.m. heartwrenching pictures out of nairobi, kenya this morning.

emotion there. continuing to follow this breaking news out of kenya. a glimmer of hope now in the devastation there hours after a seven-story building collapsed in nairobi. cheers erupting as that little girl, baby girl, and another young child are pulled alive from the rubble. there is still a fear though that other buildings could collapse. this is all after it was revealed now that this destroyed apartment building that collapsed had been condemned but the warning ignored. let's go to robyn kriel there for us reporting from nairobi. what's the latest now for us? >> reporter: kenya's president has just left the site of that collapsed apartment building and he had some stern words for government officials there telling them to find out who in that area, if there are more unsafe buildings in that area under threat of collapsing, that they should move people out of those buildings and move them to safe areas.
as you say, this building was condemned by the national construction authority but that order was ignored and people went ahead and moved in anyway. what you do find is that that happens a lot. there is such demand for housing here, especially low-income housing, as is the case in this case, in these slums near nairobi city center that people will literally live anywhere just to pay low rent and to try to survive. so we also understand that according to an eyewitness, the building was shaking a couple days earlier. just to set the context for you, it's been pouring with rain for days here in nairobi flooding across the city. you saw from that incredible footage people being pulled out alive. seven dead at the moment. rescue efforts are ongoing. the military there, kenyan red cross is there but the concern is that there are still people alive and the concern is that there may be many children because there were a number of
children's backpacks and shoes littering the ground outside this collapsed apartment building. >> robyn kriel reporting for us from nairobi, kenya where this is all happening this morning. thank you. ahead on "new day," the first zika virus death in the u.s. we'll tell you where it struck and details behind that death. plus, in the wake of trump's attacks that hillary clinton is playing the "woman card," this sparking a fierce backlash. we'll hear from a group of conservative women in indiana who had a lot to say about it. there is a look at your mortgage rates this week. ♪

half past the hour now. this weekend marks the fifth anniversary of the killing of 9/11 mafstermind osama bin lade. for the first time, president obama is sitting down inside the situation room to describe that raid. >> and why may 2nd, 2011 may have been the u.s.' last chance to get bin laden and why the stakes were even higher if that mission had failed. >> after the discussions with the principals it was clear to me that this was going to be our best chance to get bin laden, that if in fact we did not take the action that he might slip away and might be years before he resurfaced. i had confidence that we could get our guys back. we knew it was going to cause
some significant blowback within pakistan, and that if it wasn't bin laden, probably the costs without benefits. we would lose face internationally because there was probably going to be a lot of difficulty keeping it secret once the operation started. >> watch the rest of that interview monday night when cnn airs "we got him -- president obama, bin laden and the future of the war on terror." again that's monday at 8:00 p.m. eastern right here on cnn. this week republican front-runner donald trump is doubling down on the accusations that hillary clinton is playing the "woman card." some political analysts think that might be a risky strategy. >> a recent gallup poll says 70% of women have an unfavorable view of donald trump. so we asked our randi kaye to
see what republican women voted in tuesday's indiana primary think about the gender war that's being waged. >> when i say donald trump, what's the first word that comes to mind? >> powerful. >> scary. >> surprising. >> dangerous. >> no way. >> divisive. >> reporter: six republican women from indiana weighing in on donald trump's comments about women and his suggestion that hillary clinton is playing the women's card. >> frankly, if hillary clinton were a man, i don't think she'd get 5% of the vote. the only thing she's got going is the woman's card. >> that's insulting regardless of how you feel about hillary clinton to imply that her background as a u.s. senator and secretary of state give her zero qualifications? and trump's assertion that only -- hillary would only have the support of 5% of the population is ridiculous. who does he think the rest of her supporters would go for? him? i don't think these comments are helpful to him or to his
campaign. however, i still believe he is still playing t ining theatrica. >> i'm scared to death of a person setting that tone. >> reporter: some of these women are willing to overlook his comments because they think he is strongen ot economy and jobs. though after calling megyn kelly crazy and making fun of carly fiorina's face, some here are surprised trump is still on top. >> i thought when he made those derogatory remarks about carly fiorina's personal stature and her beauty, that would sink him. >> reporter: in fact, some in our group said they'd still support trump, even after comments he made to howard stern years ago. the men were talking about women in the beauty pageant trump once owned. >> first of all, she's unbelievably short and i'm a little bit surprised. i think the boob job is terrible. they look like two blight bulbs coming out of a body. >> i call this cocktail talk and
he just doesn't know any better. >> though is he talking about contestants in the pageant. it is another way to get people to watch the pageant. >> ladies, i can't believe you're excusing his behavior as the world of business or as good old boys network. i mean those are the exact same justifications used for sexual harassment for years. to use the word "boobs" several times? that's not promoting the paneling intelligent. >> reporter: these comments would not prevent you from voting for donald trump? >> no, they will not. >> reporter: brenda gerber vincent is disgustd by all of trump's comments about women but is still considering him for president. is there anything he could do to win your vote? >> we're smart. i mean we're really smart. we understand policy. we understand what's necessary for the country to move forward. we understand economic development. start speaking to us as partners. >> reporter: in the end though, trump may drive some of these republican women to vote democratic. >> if donald trump is the
nominee, would any of you consider voting for hillary clinton, voting democratic? >> no. >> molly says yes. >> yes. i am undecided of what i will do in the fall. if trump is the nominee. >> so you may actually vote for the other party. >> i may. >> reporter: randi kaye, cnn, indianapolis. >> hillary clinton's campaign is quickly capitalizing on trump's "woman card" comment. her website offering an actual tangible "woman card" to supporters in exchange for a donation. let's talk more about this escalating gender war between trump and clinton. you a with me now, cnn political commentator, erroll louis. hillary clinton spoke with our jake tapper yesterday and asked about donald trump's tactics, specific his comments about the woman card and his comments about her, calling her crooked hillary. >> i have a lot of experience dealing with men who sometimes get off the reservation in the
way they behave and how they speak. i'm not going to deal with their temper tantrums or their bullying or their efforts to try to provoke me. >> how she talks about this is kind of interesting. "the new york times" reporting that clinton advisors are saying she has to sort of ward off trump's attacks without overplaying her hand. is that what she was doing in her response? >> yes. and i think she's doing what carly fiorina did in one of the more interesting exchanges during the debates where she sort of signals to women -- because women get this -- hillary clinton signals to women, look, we know what this is. this is bullying. this is men acting like jerks. there is no reason to respond and there is no reason really to elaborate on it because everybody kind of knows what she's talking about. we've all seen this year after year after year and in this case, you have donald trump's own words to sort of impeach him on the subject where he's called
women fat pigs and disgusting animals and slobs and on and on and on and on. it's not that hard to make the connection for people. >> do people unfairly scrutinize every word in some way or treat hillary clinton different because she's a woman, do you think? >> oh, absolutely. absolutely. i mean no question about it. there is a whole archive actually of different statements and so forth up on the web if people want to go and find it where she wears a particular blouse and then there's a whole news cycle of discussion about her cleavage. that was from back in 2007. she'll make a comment that gets seized upon and people just go crazy with it. and how much discussion has there been about the clothes that she wears? i mean it's there. it's something she's had to deal with i think a lot of professional women understand what that's all about. and she's gotten pretty good at throwing it back at some of the men who try to use this as a tactic. i'd say donald trump should be a little bit careful about how he
does this. the discussion that you just showed with republican women shows that not everybody is thrilled with this idea of flinging sexist comments or overlooking them and just going to election day without it being a factor. >> let me flip it and reverse that. if somebody were to say he's just playing the man card, how would we react? >> well, i mean it's interesting, because there is some of that at play right here, to tell you the truth. donald trump is a very wealthy man. he has never held public office. he has never run for public office. he has never done most of the things that we associate with presidential candidates, and hillary clinton has. so for him to simply -- with bluff and bluster kind of say, i'm the guy, i can run the world, i know about foreign policy, we would never let a woman get away with that. so he's making good use of the man card, you might say. >> and is that why we're seeing him attack her for being a woman or say she's using a woman card
instead of attacking her positions or her experience? >> well, i mean, look. some of this is just genuine. when you talk about women in the way that he has consistently over the years, there might be something personal going on there. but in addition to that, i think republicans know that the democrats are going to come at them. they've done it for the last three presidential cycles, at least, sort of pointing out and pulling over women to their side, pointing out issues of women's right to choose, pointing out pay discrepancies, pay equity issues. it has worked for democrats, and republicans can sort of flinch almost knowing that it is coming. this is an unusual way to try and take it head-on, but that might be what donald trump is trying to do. >> it will be interesting to see if he has anything extra up his sleeve, come the general election, which i'm sure he does. at least in the works strategizing as we speak. thank you so much, erroll louis. a quick programming note for you -- hillary clinton will join jake tapper on "state of the

it is a blessed opportunity just to be in the nfl, man, just to be a part of the miami dolphins organization. >> tunsil's instagram was also hacked after he was drafted. in that hack someone posted an alleged conversation between tunsil and an ole miss official where tunsil asked for money to pay bills. after the draft tunsil admitted to taking money while at ole miss which, of course wi, is an ncaa violation. ole miss says they're investigating these allegations. as to who hacked tunsil, still a mystery. tunsil's stepfather who is currently suing him, people thought it was him at first. well, he denies hacking social media accounts. so right now we still have no idea who did it and the mystery continues. >> why don't they just get off of social media. >> delete the instagram accounts. >> no snapchat. you can't even text me. >> if something cost me $8,000, let alone $8 million, i would get rid of it. >> what about what he has done

. president obama will visit flint, michigan for the first time since that toxic water crisis began and it all may be thanks to one little girl. she wrote a letter to president obama to tell how she was working to bring attention to her city's water crisis. she wrote a letter and the president wrote her back and said i'll come to you. i spoke with her and her mother. >> good morning to you. >> good morning. >> good morning. >> so i have your letter in front of me, but i'd like to ask you before i read a little of it, why did you write to president obama?
>> we were going to washington, d.c., but we just wanted to write a letter because we wanted to tell the president that we was coming down to d.c. and we wanted to meet them but we didn't get to meet them. >> in part of the letter you write, i am one of the children affected by this water and i've been doing my best to speak out for all of the kids that live here in flint. tell me about some of the things you've been doing to bring attention to the water crisis where you live. >> we marched in rallies, i went down to d.c. i made a video. >> you made a video too? and the president wrote back. let's put up a bit of what the president wrote. he wrote that i am so proud of you for using your voice to speak out on behalf of the children of flint. that's why i want you to be the first to know that i'm coming to vis visit flint on may 4th.
i want to make sure you are receiving the help you deserve. when you got that letter from president obama what did that feel like? >> super excited. >> mom, what did you think? >> i was in disbelief. >> yeah, she wrote in the letter that the chances are that the president will be too busy. you know, so many have called for the president to come to flint and it was your daughter's letter that got him to do it. i mean, what does this mean to you, to the people of flint? >> i think it's going to give the people hope. i mean, personally, i think it's going to make her feel like her voice really can make a difference. she can make a change and she can help her entire city. >> yeah, for people who know of the crisis but don't know the particulars, give us an inside look at what it's like to not only live without usable at water in your house, but to raise a child in that condition.
>> we don't use the water for anything, so imagine every time you want to cook, you have to open up bottles and bottles of water just to boil, say, a pot of spaghetti. when you're going to give your kid a bath you have to bathe them as quick as possible to avoid getting rashes. so boiling gallons of water if you want to take a bubble bath which is something kids love to do. teaching your kids they can't get into the water, otherwise it will make them sick, it's been horrible. >> what do you want to tell the president when he comes to flint? >> that the water is super bad. and it has lead in the water and poison. >> i hear you also excited. i'm not sure if he's going to bring them, but you're excited to meet the first family's dogs as well? >> uh-huh. >> that perked you up.
you're looking forward to meeting the dogs. well, thank you so much for spending some time with us, and congratulations on getting a response from the president and a big day ahead for you this week. enjoy it. >> thank you. >> cool moment for that family. president obama tonight before he heads to flint is going to preside over the white house correspondents' dinner. it nearly always results in memorable moments, funny lines. tonight's host is a comedian who spoke with us about why hosting this year's dinner is so important to him. >> when everything is stripped away years from now, they always judge presidents in history and all that. i feel like no matter what president obama's policies do, whether they end up being good or bad, just the fact of his presidency is going to far outweigh everything and as a
black man who is the same age as the president we've had similar career paths. i'm the exact same age. it never occurred to me as a kid that grew up as a black man couldn't even be the quarterback of a football team. that was a crazy idea. and now to see one as the president of the united states, it's huge. so on a personal level his presidency means a lot to me. >> you can tune in tonight at 7:00 p.m. for the annual white house correspondents' dinner. the divide and conquer deal between ted cruz and john kasich, was it a mistake? i'll ask supporters on both sides what they think of this strategy. one coat, yes! ♪ there is a day, for every number. ♪ ♪ there is a time, for all my slumbers. ♪

>> and the weekend is a great place to be. i'm victor blackwell. good to start this saturday with you. >> these images less than 24 hours ago, protesters, a throng of demonstrators, hundreds outside the gop convention in california just before trump was scheduled to speak. it got physical there between protesters and officers and at one point they were even throwing eggs. >> it forced donald trump to watch this, hop down this little ramp. >> reporter: climb up the embankment and go into the back entrance of the hotel which he compared to crossing the border. watch this. >> that was not the easiest entrance i've ever made. my wife called. she said there are helicopters following you and then we went under a fence and through a fence and -- oh, boy, felt like i was crossing the border
actually. >> well, trump taking a break from campaigning today. ted cruz will now be addressing that same crowd at the california state convention for republicans. i want to bring in our white house producer kristen holmes who is covering all things political this morning. clearly california is seen as an important state this election cycle for all of these candidates. what do you think cruz will try to say to convince people to follow him and stop trump from reaching that delegate threshold? >> i think he's going to say a lot of what we heard before which is he thinks he's the only candidate that can unite the party. he says he's the only one that can bring people together, that trump is devicive. indiana, cruz needs indiana to stay in the race. he has to slow donald trump down because of the front runner's massive win in five north eastern states so he's been traveling around the state.
he got the endorsement of governor mike pence saying that he's a bully and an insider. many saying that cruz has to win indiana to justify staying in the race. the trump campaign agrees. the campaign manager saying that it's cruz is to lose there so we'll see how that plays out this week, but i think in california we'll hear a lot of calls that ted cruz says that he's the one that can lead the party. >> thank you. donald trump also in california called ted cruz a cheat who might bribe his way to the nomination. watch that. >> he has no path to victory. it's impossible for him to win with the votes. the only way he can possibly win is if things go terribly wrong and he goes through the back door and he bought all of these delegates and i would never use the word like bribe. so if he bribed the delegates
but i don't call bribe. >> well, donald trump has also released a new ad slamming what he calls cruz's job killing deals. >> let's talk about ohio governor john kasich who says he has no regrets about the deal he brokered with ted cruz to divide and conquer the remaining primary states in his effort to stop donald trump. this morning kasich says he is confident there will be a contested convention. >> you allocate your resources based on where you think you can do best, and look, i've been outspending this campaign by 15-1 and we're still standing and no, i think we did the right thing for ourselves. i think we are most likely headed to an open convention and when we get there, the day donald trump gets there will be his best day and then from there he's going to decline because he can't win in the fall. >> all right. joining us now to talk about this cruz/kasich deal is a
former mayer you, and a former congressman from michigan and a john kasich campaign surrogate. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> i want to start with you congressman with a simple question. does the kasich campaign want his supporters in indiana to vote for him? >> well, john has been very clear on this. we're not going to tell the voters how to vote, but it's clear, you know, that for john kasich or for ted cruz to have an opportunity to be the nominee in november beat hillary clinton we need to move to an open convention which means we need to deny donald trump 1237 delegates and by doing that, ted cruz and john kasich have to be winning primaries as we move forward. >> i don't know that i've ever interviewed anyone affiliated with any political campaign who could not just say vote for my
guy, vote for the candidate and the kasich campaign cannot say whether or not they want kasich supporters in indian to vote for him or not? >> well, no, obviously if people are committed to john kasich in indiana, they vote for john kasich. voters vote for who they have a passion for and who they believe will be the next president. >> does the campaign want to win indiana? >> john has said that winning indiana is not critical to this campaign. that's why we pulled our resources out. we don't want donald trump to get those 57 delegates. the only way that that happens is ted cruz wins. >> but do they want ted cruz to win indiana. >> we want ted cruz to win indiana. >> okay. good. let's get that on the record. now the element of staying out of oregon and new mexico, is there under this deal that was announced the cruz campaign said they would clear the path for
governor kasich in oregon and new mexico. is there any scenario under which ted cruz will campaign in oregon or new mexico? >> i think that if john kasich is out of the race, that it very well could happen. other than that, the senate will honor his deal because he's a man of his word. but the operative word here is deal. ted cruz put together a very good deal and he's beaten trump at the heart of the deal and he's supposed to be the best deal maker. we all now that coming off the wins in nrk, pennsylvania, et cetera, the press would be talking about how it was in the bag for donald trump. may is a whole different month. the senate will do very well in indiana, but we have ten delegate rich states in the month of may. two weeks from now when i'm back on the air with you, people are going to be talking about how it's a new race again, that ted cruz has new life. that's how this is going to play out. >> do you say if john kasich
withdraws ted cruz would go in? or are you talking about meth? >> ted cruz is not going to violate his gentleman's agreement with john kasich. however, john kasich has no money left. i guess ohio was the last one he won, so a big win for ted in indiana which i'm expected on tuesday followed by other wins, by the time we get to may it could be a whole different ball game. >> we heard from governor kasich being questioned about this deal. he said that of course he wants people in indiana who support him to vote for him. we just heard it from the congressman as well -- well, he didn't say it explicitly, but if people have made their minds up they should support him. is that a violation of the deal that was agreed to? >> i think what's implied is
pretty clear. john kaus itch has -- kasich has conceded indiana. but again, may is going to be a whole different month. ten very delegate rich states. the numbers will change a couple of weeks ago so we have a long battle ahead. we knew this was going to happen. we expected -- it's playing out just the way we expected. but i do want to point out something else that the senator mentioned a few days ago. a debate is the only way to clarify donald trump's real positions on the issues. we need to have a real serious debate so voters can make a decision. >> all right. i want to get the congressman back in here. just to respond what he just said about endorsing ted cruz in
indiana. i'll give you a moment to respond to that. you said that you want him to win there. what did you consider a violation if ted cruz were to campaign at all in oregon or new mexico? >> well, i think the -- this gentleman's agreement as it's been described is clear. john is pulling all of his resources and has pulled all of his resources out of indiana. didn't campaign there. the expectation and we believe that senator cruz will honor this expectation is that he will not campaign in oregon and new mexico. it's very clear. >> i agree with the congressman on that. >> both of you stick with us. we'll continue this conversation in just a moment. also want to talk about the democrats. hillary clinton says she couldn't care less about those taunts from donald trump and she's brushing off the accusation that she's playing the woman card and that nickname
donald trump gave her crooked hillary. >> i have a lot of experience dealing with men who sometimes get off the reservation in the way they behave and how they speak. i'm not going to deal with their temper tantrums or their bullying or their efforts to try to provoke me. he can say whatever he wants to say about me. i could really care less. >> clinton also hinted at how she plans to get bernie sanders' supporters behind her. ted cruz is on the show along with hillary tomorrow morning. they'll begin at 9:00 a.m. eastern only on cnn. so what happened with the cruz/kasich deal? now both candidates say there's no such thing, other times saying there is a deal. we'll continue our conversation
with our guests from each campaign in just a moment. and students outraged after raup victims are scorned and expelled from classes after reporting their assaults. >> and this horrible discovery in texas. toddlers found chained, one of them found chained to a tree there. we've got all the details. they are deflating and horrific. we've got them for you in a moment.
i had so many thoughts once i left the hospital after a dvt blood clot. what about my wife... ...what we're building together... ...and could this happen again? i was given warfarin in the hospital, but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? i spoke to my doctor and she told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots. but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... ...turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless you doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness.
while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if it's right for you. we stop arthritis pain, so you don't have to stop. because you believe in go. onward. today's the day. carpe diem. tylenol® 8hr arthritis pain has two layers of pain relief. the first is fast. the second lasts all day. we give you your day back. what you do with it is up to you. tylenol®.
back with us to talk about the cruz campaign, the kasich campaign, indiana and beyond, we've got the state director for the ted cruz campaign and the former congressman from michigan. good to have both of you back and i want to start with you with something that ted cruz said on fox news last night. we'll watch and then talk. >> it gives me great comfort
that this primary is going to be decided by the mid western common sense of the hoosier state. >> he says there the primary is going to be decided by the hoosier state. if ted cruz loses there, is it over for him? >> it's not over, but a win there is very, very important. there's still quite a battle ahead. ted will go right through the entire convention, but a win on tuesday is very important, but let's face it, victor, the midwest is a lot different than the northeast. the northeast is much more liberal republicans. the midwest much more conservative. fertile grounds for cruz' message. with his new running mate he's brought real energy to the campaign. he's broken the trump news cycle and put focus back on the issues. >> he should have won michigan then. if the midwest is fertile ground
what happened there? >> we had other candidates and other dynamics and it was much closer than people realize. >> let's turn to john kasich and something that was said by carly fiorina and i'll come to that after this. >> just to be clear, a vote for john kasich is a vote for donald trump because john kasich has absolutely no path to the nomination, not now, not at a contested convention. john kasich is throwing your vote away. >> for two campaigns that had struck this deal, it seems like there's now this fire coming from the cruz/fiorina campaign. what do you say about that? >> i'm assuming she's talking about indiana where we've pulled out of that state and we do want ted cruz to win and with hold the delegates. but john kasich has as much a
chance as ted cruz does when we get to the open convention. they'll take a look and see who can win in november and when you start looking at a governor like john kasich that gets 64% of the vote in a state like ohio which you have to win if we're going to have a republican in the white house on january 20, the delegates are going to recognize that john kasich has the track record both politically and electorally and is our most viable candidate. so john's got as big of an opportunity as ted cruz or donald trump in a second, third or fourth ballot in cleveland. >> i mean, that is the feather in the governor's cap that he has 15 plus of those polls going on for several weeks now saying that he is the only candidate of the three that can beat hillary clinton in november. what does ted cruz have to combat that if this gets to a second ballot and the candidates
get another opportunity to address the delegates? >> donald trump has been pounding away at ted cruz which is going to drive up his unfavorables. john kasich has been relatively untouched so once you get into a real campaign come september and hillary clinton start tlumping her billion dollars crushing donald trump and going after any candidate, it changes altogether. again, i have to rebind you that going into indiana, donald trump has yet to release his tax returns, we don't know what he's hiding, his college transcripts. that infamous tape with him with the new york times and he won't debate ted cruz. voters deserve the debate and we're lacking that in this primary. >> this week john kasich said he was starting to vet potential running mates. should we expect an announcement
before the convention? >> i don't think so. i think the process of vetting has begun, but right now this is all about getting john to the nomination. we want to be prepared when we get to cleveland but i'm not expecting a vice presidential nomination any time soon. >> all right. thank you. great to week with both of you. >> thank you. still ahead here on "new day," new details on some emergency medical calls from prince's home in the years before he died. and what they may tell us. also ahead, kenya set to burn millions of dollars worth of ivory. authorities will set fire to nearly 7,000 elephant tusks. we'll tell you why, next.
the little boy was chained to the ground. the little girl was tied up with a dog leash to a door. it was obvious they'd both been there a while. there was obvious signs of abuse. >> we use the word shocking on television often, but this is indeed shocking to hear about what happened to these children. police initially were alerted by reports of a child crying and they found in the middle of the night two badly injured toddlers tied up like dogs behind this home in san antonio. six other children were in the house, but no adults there. the mother of the children in that home was eventually arrested and charged. she was believed to be responsible for those toddlers. the father though, has not yet been charged. all of the children were immediately turned over to protective services. the two toddlers were taken to a hospital.

a court hearing on monday will start to sort out what's going to happen to prince's $300 million estate. this could be a complicated process because prince's sister says he did not leave behind a will. this comes as we're learning about several emergency medical calls made from his paisley park compound in the years before his death. they date back to the fall of 2013. more calls in the fall of 2015. the details of these calls are still private but we do know they were calls for emergency medical assistance. let's bring in cnn's reporter
from minnesota. a law enforcement source does tell us that prince had some prescription painkillers on him when he died. >> reporter: yeah, that's true, and also the source telling us that there were some opioid based prescription painkillers also found in his home and at this point so far, investigators have said that they were not able to find any legal prescription for those painkillers, but of course the investigation is still underway. let's talk about some of the calls that were made from paisley park, the compound and prince's home that you see just there behind me, behind that memorial that has grown, by the way, exponentially over the days since he's died. basically what we were able to ascertain is that 47 calls over the past five years from this particular compound. those calls were things like suspicious activity, they were things like harassing phone
calls that were called into law enforcement authorities, but four of those calls were for medical assistance. the last of those four was because prince had died in an elevator. the other three though, we're still trying to ascertain exactly what they were for. those happened over a three-year period. and as we understand it, at least one of those calls was likely for someone who was involved in one of the public events that prince would put on here. he'd do these public dance parties here, so he may not have been in any way involved in any of those other three calls. they may have been for folks who come to this compound to take part in whatever was going on, whether it was someone from the band practicing or whether it was the public who was involved in some of those dance parties, but we're still looking into that. what it does tell us though, is that from investigators' standpoint they are bringing in the dea to look at this opioid based pain medication trying to figure out where that came from.
and if he did obtain those illegally. >> all right. the latest on the death of prince as we await toxicology reports that are still to come in the days or weeks ahead. thank you, sarah. >> as you heard sarah say there, we still have no idea what killed prince, but in the discussion of opioid medication it was found as we said, on his body and in his home. >> and we do know that kind of medication is commonly used as a painkill painkiller. why opioids have become so widespread here in the u.s. >> when talking about opiates what we're talking about is the medications either prescription medications or illicit drugs that come from opium, the poppy plant. so opiates such as morphine, hydrocodone, those are the legitimate pain medications and then there's heroin that comes from the same active ingredient.
these pain pills that we've talked a lot about are medications that are used really in staggering amounts in the united states. in fact, if you look at the world's painkiller use, 80% of them are used in the united states. 80% of the world's pain pills used in one country that has 5% of the world's population. there's certainly a lot of people who can use these medications very, very effectively for their pain and they have no risk of addiction. they have no risk of physical dependence, theyhavenoriskof death but there are people who do become physically dependent on these pills and even in the absence of those two things can still die from overdoses. what often happens is that people start to take more and more of these medications, sometimes they combine them with other medications or things like alcohol and in combination, that can lead to someone's breathing down and when the person falls asleep, losing that drive to breathe, that reflex to breathe and that is what the concern is
in terms of overdoses. you've got a person dying about every 19 minutes on average of one of these types of overdoses. there's been a lot of plans to try to decrease these deaths. one of the big ones is to make a medication known as narcan more widely available. this can reverse someone out of it very quickly. back to you. >> thanks so much. drug overdoses kill more americans, consider this, every year than car crashes or fire arms. and these painkillers cause more of those overdose deaths than any other type of drug. they were involved in more than 28,000 deaths in 2014, the most recent year for data. the cdc says as many as 1.9 million people are
struggling with painkiller addictions in the u.s. our next guest is working to fight the epidemic. daniel salter, good of you to come in this morning. i just want to start with this. so many people lump drug addiction, drug overdoses together if they don't deal with it, but these opioid addictions, the opioid overdoses have really reached crisis level. what are the challenges from a law enforcement perspective? >> we're looking at it as an epidemic. we have an opportunity that 78 americans are dying a day related to opiate and heroin overdoses. if we had one plane wreck it would be breaking news for three days, so i appreciate the opportunity. law enforcement, it's a struggle. we're seeing more and more individuals turning to pain pills as a recreation drug which they weren't intended for and unfortunately we're seeing the results of that which leads to addiction and a lot of times
ultimately death. >> are you seeing that most of these overdoses and adductions are related to the prescribed medication and taking too much or the graduation to the illicit drugs, the heroin and that causing some of these deaths? >> i think it's both. i think heroin uses -- four to five heroin users started with pain medicine. so you can't mention heroin without talking about pain medicine. >> how did it get this bad? >> well, i think -- i think commonly, you know, americans, we're used to taking a pill for everything and also too, it's a society that wants instant relief from pain. often times pain medicine is overprescribed. cdc suggests 3 to 7 days for pain medicine and often times you're seeing 30 and 60-day doses which ultimately end up in your medicine cabinet where many of our young are getting their hands on it. >> there are a lot of people who have these drugs in their medicine cabinet this morning
and we understand that today for a few hours there is a takeback program. tell us about that. >> yes, today's the 11th dea national drug takeback. it's anonymous. individuals who have medicine in their cabinets and homes, they can take it to a location near them to get it disposed of properly. we at dea we attack drug cartels from mexico, that's our primary work. unfortunately, there's cartels in each and every medicine cabinet if we don't get it out of the house because a number of our first-time users start with the medicine cabinet. >> you'll take back any of the medication in medicine cabinets anyone wants to get rid of today? >> that's correct. anything but syringes. >> okay. when people don't really know what they're looking at opiate or opioid, what are we looking
for? >> hydrocodone, percocet, anything issued in pain, when you have something that's based out of opiate, same place heroin comes from, there's a number of pain medicines that are closely related that we can dispose of as well. again, anything that -- we look at it all as addicting so get et out of the house and let's get it where it needs to be. >> in the fight against the opioid addiction and of course the overdose and deaths, do you feel like you have the momentum now or is this just something that we're talking about it so much that the dea is starting to get a handle on? >> well, we work with our state and local and other federal partners all over the country and we do a phenomenal job. the issue is when you had this amount of addiction, you know, you can't arrest your way out of this. and we're looking and taking a new approach to getting into education and working with our treatment folks and medical folks and getting not only in our schools where our young people are but also to our
medical clinics and our doctors where there are academies of pharmacy boards and talking about the concerns and the scare of being overdose -- overprescribed. >> all right. special agent dan salter, thank you so much for coming in and discussing something we don't discuss often enough, drug dependency and these really strong opioids that people start so young. still ahead here on "new day," rescuers and residents working side by side. they're looking for people buried in the rubble of a building collapsed in kenya. they just pulled another person out. we'll show you the pictures just ahead. also here, protests at brig ham young university where several students tell us they were punished after reporting rape or sexual assault. their stories coming up. then your eyes may see it differently. flonase is the first and only nasal spray approved to relieve

can get to these missing people before it is too late. so what we know is they have pulled a number of people out of this rubble, kenya police saying more than 100 people have been rescued from this catastrophic building collapse, seven stories in the middle of torrential rains, some of the heaviest rainfall that kenya has received this year, really. we can also tell you that rescue operations were affected by those rains as well as the time it took for rescue officials to get to the scene where this building collapsed. it happened about 9:00 p.m. on a friday night, so very bad traffic anyway, and then you can imagine with an accident like this and with rain, flooding on the roads, it really was difficult for rescue officials to get there, but stories of incredible bravery and hope. you see babies being pulled out still alive. there is huge concern that there are small children still trapped. rescue officials tell us that
they have seen a number of children's backpacks at the scene as well as a number of shoes belonging to children, but just no real idea of how many people are inside this apartment building because no one seems to know just how many people were living there. so what the red cross has done is set up different satellite stations where you can report if you know someone that was in that building and they have not been found or they perhaps are not sure where they are, if they're at the hospital, where they could be. you can go in there and report that your loved one is missing and they will try to track them down for you, but a real race against time for rescue workers. >> and those images really do move you when you see that man hoist up the little baby girl who was pulled out of that rubble. we know you'll continue to gather more on the search effort. we pray for those people certainly this morning. thank you. still to come on "new day," protests and anger brewing on the campus of brig ham young university. >> a number of female students
say they were raped or sexually assaulted and then punished by the university after they reported their attacks. now fellow students and really the whole community are rallying behind these alleged victims. >> that's them again not believing us. >> i don't know why they feel the need to do a study. there's overwhelming everyday. so many people have come forward. >> it's just a school whose policies are very much messed up right now and aren't in line with what love and merry are.
welcome back. brigham young university is under nier thfire this morning w the school handles reports of sexual assault and rape. we spoke to a number of women who were victims and then were punished by the university after reporting their attacks. >> he had taken photos and videos during the rape and he threatened me to expose those. >> i tried to get up and leave. >> i've got these, like strict lines you're not crossing and he didn't care about those. >> i was just sitting there crying saying i don't want to report, i can't do this, what if byu finds out? >> their stories of rape and sexual assault traumatic and horrifying. >> what does it take to change the way we address sexual assault? >> but it's what happened after
their report that's sparking the outrage. she says she had taken hallucinogenic drugs just before being assaulted. >> over the course of the next 45 minutes in like different ways, he raped me. >> she reported it to police, but too afraid to face her alleged attacker in court decided not to press charges. three months later she told her school, brigham young, university. >> i thought it would be a simple process to report and have him be kicked out. >> because he was a student. >> yeah, he was a student there. >> but instead of support, she was suspended. byu determined brook had violated its honor code that prohibits the use of drugs and alcohol and premarital sex. >> i was scared of my standing at byu. >> she only reported heb ae ledged rape to police. it happened off campus so she
was shocked when she got a call from the school's office. >> what she said on that phone call was we received a police report, and in it a, we think you may have been raped, and b, it looks like you probably violated the honor code as well. i felt so betrayed because they read every single thing that happened to me and they just kind of didn't care. >> in fact, she says now she's facing backlash from byu for not answering all their questions. her attorney told her not to until after her criminal trial this fall. the school won't let her register for future classes until she talks with the honor code office. >> there would never be an honor review for sexual assault. i wouldn't be able to speculate on any one situation. >> while the school can't talk about specific cases it did issue this auditional statement
saying in part, sometimes in the course of an investigation, facts come to light that a victim has engaged in prior honor code violations. in all honor code proceedings the university strives for fairness, sensitivity and compassion. the university's overriding concern is always the safety and well being of its students. >> i think their first and foremost priority is protecting the university. it's not protecting the students. >> i see you shaking your heads. >> they've made that very clear. >> since barney went public with her story other victims have felt empowered to share theirs. >> you're reporting yourself when you go in. that's at least my perception of the title ix office. you are presumed to be guilty. >> as soon as they got the final documents that he had been convicted that's when they helped me to withdraw from classes and they didn't offer any of that until they had the court documentation.
>> anger is growing. >> i'm a sexual assault survivor. i was raped here in this community while i was attending byu. >> did you report it? >> no, i did not for this exact reason. >> you were too afraid? >> yes. >> she recently led a protest march through campus with a petition signed by more than 100,000 calling on the university to give immunity to those who report rape or sexual assault. >> i'll be happy to take these and we'll personally deliver them. >> the university says it is now studying current practices and procedures. >> we want to look at the relationship between the title ix office and the honor code office. we want to look at whether around how information is shared. we want to look at the perception that students have. >> it's not a perception, it's something that's actually happening and that's them again not believing us. >> i don't even know why they feel the need to do a study. so many people have come forward. >> it's just a school whose
policies are very messed up right now and aren't in line with what love and mercy is. >> now, for a lot of the people we talked to, this study the school's doing just isn't good enough. they want action and barney just last week decided to take the matter into her own hands ch she filed an official complaint against the school with the department of education's office for civil rights asking federal officials so investigate what happened to her and to others at byu. let's take you live now to kenya. this is where they're going to have an anti poaching drive today where they're going to light those tusks up to send a message to those poachers. >> officials are going to torch what amounts to 100 tons of ivory, equivalent to 8,000 elephants here worth hundreds of millions of dollars on the black market. we'll have the live burn for
you. we'll dip into that coming up in the 10:00 eastern hour and we'll have much more for you when we come back here at 10:00 a.m. eastern. >> we hope you'll join us. don't go anywhere. smerconish is next. no more questions for you! ooph, that milk in your cereal was messing with you, wasn't it? try lactaid, it's real milk, without that annoying lactose. good, right? mmm, yeah. lactaid. the milk that doesn't mess with you.
