6:00 pm
the primary race in west virginia, polls have closed. so far the trump-backed congressman alex mooney is leading in the west virginia second congressional race over david mckinley with 55% of precincts in. alex mooney has 51.7%, david mckinley 38.1%. we'll continue to follow the numbers as they come in. let's hand it over to laura coates and "cnn tonight." >> thanks, anderson, we'll keep an eye on what's going on. i'm laura coates and this is another intriguing election night in america. we're about to explain just why that is. we're awaiting more results of key primary races of the 2022 election cycle. now, polls closed literally just seconds ago in nebraska. and a short while ago in west virginia. you have our own election king with us at the magic wall monitoring it all, john king will be with us in just a moment to break it all down.
6:01 pm
i said they're key races. that's because, well, the outcomes in these two deep red states could be harbingers of other gop races to come. why is that? because it might all come down to the power of one donald trump again. the question will be does the former president still have as tight a grip on his party when he's out of office and also post-insurrection, as did he before the events that led to his second impeachment? that seems to be the case with at least two top republican leaders. both were once caught on tape denouncing trump for what happened on january 6th. in fact, listen to this new au audio that just came out of senator lindsey graham right after the capitol attack. >> he's misjudged the passion. he plays the tv game and he went too far here. that rally didn't help, talking
6:02 pm
about primarying liz. he created a sense of revenge. >> as they say, that was then. he also said, well, enough is enough. remember that? now graham says the gop can't move forward without trump. house leader kevin mccarthy heaped high praise on trump just last night, even referring to donald trump as the republicans' secret weapon on a stage they shared together after his own audio was leaked, once saying that trump should resign. then there is the new warning from one of trump's former cabinet members. the commander in chief that he once worked for is, quote, a threat to democracy. >> do you think donald trump was a threat to democracy? >> i think that, uh, given the events of january 6th, given how he has undermined the election results, he incited people to come to dc, to me that threatens our democracy. so yes, i think the answer --
6:03 pm
what else can you conclude? >> what else can you conclude, he says. quite an indictment for a former defense secretary and one that was actually picked by donald trump. and then what about this new big headline? remember, after the attack on the capitol, the former president was permanently suspended from twitter for violating the platform's rules against violence incitement but now elon musk, who could soon own the social media giant if the deal closes, says if he does run it, he would reverse that permanent ban on trump. so it seems that trump remains the connective tissue here. which brings us back to how he might impact these primary races. in nebraska, trump's pick for governor is charles herbster, a wealthy businessman facing a slew of sexual misconduct allegations. and trump's been dismissing the women's accounts. and in west virginia, two sitting members of congress now find themselves running against each other for one house seat. trump's candidate voted to help
6:04 pm
him overturn the 2020 election. that's alex mooney. and not david mckinley who voted for a bipartisan january 6th commission. who will come out on top? and what could it all mean for trump not only in november but also beyond? let's go to john king live at the magic wall. john, what are you seeing there? >> laura, what we're seeing in west virginia where we have results, about 55% right now, is that trump-backed candidate, republican congressman alex mooney, opening a lead over david mckinley. these two republican incumbents are running against each other in the northern half of the state. mckinley has the backing of most of the republican establishment including the republican governor. he has the backing of democratic senator joe manchin who shot a tv ad for mckinley. but here you have, again, just like last tuesday night when we spoke, laura, proof of the power of a trump endorsement, at the moment. we haven't called this race yet, it's still at 55%, but over the
6:05 pm
last hour or so this lead has gradually increased. 53% for mooney. we're not down counting yet, but this was one of trump's best states, he won every county against joe biden in west virginia two years ago. it certainly looks like yet again the power of a trump endorsement, whether you like him or not, at home still has a lot of sway in republican primaries, especially in these very pro-trump states like west virginia. we're still waiting for votes to come in in be in be in. in nebraska. >> john, the counties still coming in to report, those went to trump previously in the election, they're probably going to go in the same direction, those that he endorsed? >> you have to be careful about that in the west virginia race because you do have two established republican incumbents. most of the new district in west virginia is actually mckinley's old district. it shows you the power of trump without a doubt. i switched over to the nebraska governor's race just to get a sense, brett lindstrom, not
6:06 pm
endorsed by trump or the ntat the moment. you see it changing as we speak. lindstrom leadg at the moment. trump's candidate, charles herbster, the businessman, is coming in last. we have a long way to go. but we talked about this last week, we had the primary in ohio last week, nebraska and west virginia tonight, pennsylvania to come next week, georgia the week after that, a few others as well. by the end of the month we'll have a much better sense how much sway donald trump still has over grassroots republican voters. a big debate here in washington, i know you had the lindsey graham tape, the esper interview there. heading into 2024, what do voters think, do they still follow trump's lead? we'll have a better answer tonight and certainly at the end of the month. >> john king, did you.
6:07 pm
dana bash, david chalian, and abby phillip, we'll pick up where john left off. if you're thinking about how things begin, say with a lindsey graham or a kevin mccarthy, these audiotapes reveal where you begin is not ultimately where you end up. dana, particularly with someone like lindsey graham, you have to wonder, is there anyone whose opinion is going to sway the electorate? you've got lindsey graham making the comments he has. you've got people like kevin mccarthy. you've got people like esper, john bolton who made comments, rex tillerson, the list goes on and on. does anyone have any sway that could, well, trump trump's? >> the short answer is no, not for this core at least in daze l -- in days like today, on days
6:08 pm
like today, prime electorate, especially in ruby red states. we're watching for results in west virginia and nebraska. but i think the answer to your question lies in the changes that we've seen in the public statements from lindsey graham and kevin mccarthy. my guess is the changes are that despite what their reaction was, a very human reaction in the immediate days and -- hours and days after january 6th, they realized that the political winds weren't changing in their own party so they went back to full-on trumpism. >> this idea, abby, of enough being enough, to paraphrase what lindsey graham had to say, it is true, mary poppins, i'll stay as long as the wind doesn't change direction, and the wind didn't change direction, the mom in me has to quote mary poppins, but
6:09 pm
one of the people that donald trump is endorsing in nebraska has allegations of misconduct against him. this is kind of a little bit more familiar in recent modern american political times about the idea of testing the morality, for example, of a particular party. the republicans, i know, used to be the party of moral values. then you've got this person, charles herbster, who is backed by trump, trump explaining away the behavior or dismissive of it. what does this tell you about the impact between this, particularly, we're talking about -- we're not really out of the "me too" era, the allegations of previous incumbents and the like. is this indicative of something bigger? >> i think first of all, trump is not one to rule out an endorsement based on allegations of misconduct really of any kind but certainly not sexual misconduct. on multiple occasions he's either endorsed a candidate with allegations against him or has
6:10 pm
seriously considered endorsing candidates with allegations of misconduct against them. that's just how he operates. he doesn't view those things as particularly important. and this will be a test on whether or not voters in nebraska agree. i think trump himself has been able to blow past a lot of things like this, controversies of all kinds, because republican voters give him the benefit of the doubt. it's just not as clear whether that will be extended to someone whose name is not actually trump. and that's part of what we are going to be testing tonight with this election in nebraska, how much does it really matter to rank and file voters in some of these races. let's say ohio, for example, the most recent one, trump's candidate won, but, you know, a race in which you had multiple other candidates who got plenty
6:11 pm
of votes too. so his endorsement is giving people a bit of an edge, but can it overcome an overwhelming disadvantage? we don't know that yet. that's one of the things we're waiting to find out. >> interesting, we're all talking here, david, about republicans and the republican base in part but nebraska is an interesting example here because there was more than 8,000 democrats and independents who actually appeared to register as republicans to be engaged in this particular primary. does that tell us more about that maybe trump is a galvanizing force for democrats, independents, to turn out to vote in a de facto sort of primary/general election? >> i don't know, it probably tells us a bit more about how deeply red nebraska is and that the republican nominee is likely to be the next governor of nebraska. so if you want to sort of participate in that process, especially when a candidate like brett lindstrom, with 21% of the vote in, is in the lead, is
6:12 pm
making sort of a moderate appeal. he's very much appealing to those folks, saying, hey, this is an area for the republican party perhaps that will work for you, change your registration, come on over. so be part of this process. i think it probably has more to say about that than about trump as a galvanizing force. but that is the not to say that trump is not a galvanizing force for democrats. there's debate in the democratic party about how much to lean into trump as a bogeyman this fall as they're trying to deal with this tough political environment, because of inflation, because of president biden's standing in the polls, that's that this debate inside, how much can democrats use trump when he's not actually on the ballot as a way to break back some of those independent suburban voters that sort of pushed away from the republican party in the trump era.
6:13 pm
>> and of course we're talking about west virginia, the results are coming in, we wonder who has the most influence going forward as well. we know of course from john's conversation that even senator manchin has weighed in in favor of a republican primary candidate here. so a lot more to get to there. we'll have you back on, dana, david, and abby, thank you so much. coming up, brand-new details emerging from the alabama fugitive manhunt that ended yesterday in indiana with the capture of an escaped convict and with an ex-correction officer's death. we have new dash cam video released of casey white being taken into custody. back in a moment with the sheriff on that case and what was found in their possession, how they managed to escape, and stay on the run for so long. that's next. dove knows we damage our hair a lot

6:18 pm
project representative alex mooney has defeated representative david mckinley in the gop primary in west virginia's 2nd congressional district. representative mooney had the endorsement of former president trump. dana, what does this tell about you the fact that a trump-endorsed candidate, yet another one, has now become a primary victor? >> that is the trump endorsement matters a lot in places like west virginia, where the trump brand, the trump persona, is one of the most if not the most important aspect of the gop. you've got to remember that west virginia is the place where donald trump did the best except for wyoming. so he had an enormous, enormous lead at the end, after election day 2020, over joe biden.
6:19 pm
it has become an increasingly red state, an increasingly trump state. and his endorsement of congressman mooney clearly mattered. and it is noteworthy that the democratic senator, joe manchin, as we talked about earlier, put himself on the line by endorsing the congressman's opponent, somebody he said he had a relationship with for 40 years, and in his words to manu raju, lies that were being told about the record. and it came down to feel alty o january 6th and on the election and more recently about having the notion of voting for a bipartisan compromise bill on infrastructure, which you would think, especially in a stated like west virginia, laura, which has a very long history of bringing home the bacon, that
6:20 pm
would have been a slam dunk politically. not in the trump era, not in a republican primary. >> and it seems, i want to bring john king into the conversation and get his take on what we're seeing from the reports and what came in, because of course as she mentioned, senator joe manchin did talk about mooney as being a potential outsider. it didn't seem to be the case here for the primary voters. >> it did not. these are two republican incumbent congress men. david mckinley, 60% of this new district is his old district. if there was any geographic advantage, it was to mckinley, not mooney. as dana noted, the republican governor was for mckinley. senator joe manchin, a democrat, was for mckinley. cnn has now projected this race, we're up to two-thirds of the votes in, heats 52% to 38% if you round that up, that's 14 points. again, i said this at the top, a lot of people at home say, stop talking about trump. donald trump is the most
6:21 pm
dominant force in one of america's two leading political parties and he's proving it again in this year's primary campaigns. for the people out there who want to stop talking about trump, that's not up to us, we have to cover these races where trump's endorsement is making a difference. we'll have the nebraska governor's race later tonight as those results come in and pennsylvania senate race, georgia, the governor's race, the secretary of state's race there, arkansas there are some trump factors as well. he is a factor in the party. for those at home who don't want to talk about him and wish he would go away, he's not going to go away and he's the dominant force in the republican party right now. what we'll learn tonight and throughout the month is how dominant. this is not about congressman mooney or congressman mckinley. this is about the men and women who vote in these republican parties like west virginia and elsewhere, do they still want donald trump? do they still take their cue from him? it's unmistakable, mckinley is
6:22 pm
losing convincingly as these votes come in. >> also important, dana, but why there was the endorsement, in my mind. as john talks about, it's not just the idea of donald trump -- endorsed. it was the why. it was this candidate not supporting the january 6th bipartisan, two republicans are on the committee, the idea of the infrastructure package as well. bipartisanship a liability, that could be as important as who did the endorsing. >> that's so true, and it's not just the bipartisan committee. it was a commission. it was the fact that congressman mckinley deigned to support independence to find out what really happened on january 6th
6:23 pm
when he and his colleagues were under attack and democracy itself was under attack. and of course that bipartisan bill. so yes, it's the combination of supporting or at least not turning away from the big lie of 2020, but also doing donald trump's bidding, because on that infrastructure bill, the bipartisan infrastructure bill, this is the kind of legislation that then president trump was trying to get done but couldn't for a variety of reasons. and because it would have been and was joe biden's victory in a bipartisan way, donald trump came out against it, not because he all of a sudden woke up and said, oh, i think big spending is a bad idea, or oh, i think building bridges and tunnels and roads and fixing the crumbling infrastructure of america is a bad idea. it's because he didn't want joe biden to have a victory. a lot of republicans disagreed
6:24 pm
because they thought, this is the area where we can work in a bipartisan way. but that was a political death sentence for mckinley, one of the main reasons, but certainly there were others. >> i have to tell you, given all the commentary about partisan stalemate, the irritation in the electorate about things not getting done, if bipartisanship becomes a political liability, i don't know what that bodes for the future of democracy, frankly. there must be other ways to counteract it. dana bash, john king, stay close. coming up, new details emerging from the alabama fugitive manhunt that ended yesterday dramatically in indiana. everyone is talking about this case across the country. back in a moment with the sheriff who knows this case best. your turn.

6:28 pm
the escaped prisoner who eluded authorities for 11 days will be back in alabama, for his arraignment hearing. casey white was transported from indiana where he was hiding out with a corrections officer, the late vicky white. the two were not related even though casey referred to the officer as, quote, his wife. she was discovered with a gunshot wound, apparently
6:29 pm
self-inflicted. listen to this moment at the end of the chase just after officers reached the car. >> let's go ahead and pop this front windshield here. >> she's got the gun in her hand. she's still breathing. >> okay. >> she later died in the hospital. police also found several weapons, wigs, and $29,000 in cash. the 38-year-old prisoner, who escaped on april 29th, was allegedly planning to get into a shootout with police if he hadn't had his car rammed by law enforcement. alabama sheriff rick singleton said rivicky white was basicall the mastermind for the whole plan. he joins us now. sheriff singleton, i know you have questions you wanted to ask of the person you used to work with yet the tragedy of not knowing may be all we have.
6:30 pm
>> that's right. a lot of the questions we had may never be answered now. the main question was, for vicky, being the kind of employee she's been for all these years, what in the world possessed her to pull a stunt like this. the only conclusion i guess we can come to at this point is just a jailhouse romance. >> i have to wonder about that because it seemed as though, her position, people have questions. how did this not go noticed for so long? >> she absolutely exploited her position, her authority in the facility, second in command over operations. she coordinated all the entrance points to the jail. she knew friday morning was one of the busiest mornings for inmates to be transferred to the courthouse for court hearings. friday mornings can get quite chaotic with inmates coming and going all morning back and forth
6:31 pm
to court. she was able to assign the dep deputies, get them all out to the detention center, to the courthouse. it wasn't unusual for her to put one inmate in her car and bring him to court if the judge said at the last minute, i need to see this inmate or whatever. typically it would be for something like public intoxication or shoplifting or a minor offense. anyone with capital murder should have been escorted by two deputies. >> i was going to say, sheriff, he was serving decades in prison for capital murder, now being on trail for yet another murder. i wonder, there obviously were some guardrails, as you say, that should have been put in place. are you aware that there really was a romance? are there other inmates who knew something that you did not know at the time and are there ways
6:32 pm
going forward to try to uncover the information as to who knew what when, maybe other employees in the same facility or anything like that? was it really completely blindsiding to all of you? >> i think it was. i don't think any employees had any knowledge about what she was about to pull. we did interview inmates the day after and we received information from them that he was getting special treatment. by that they were talking about that she would give him cigarettes, which is against policy. she would give him extra food on his tray, those kind of things. and of course as big as he was, nobody would challenge him about those things. but she absolutely used her position, you know, to get him out of that facility. and they obviously had a six-hour lead on us. typically if someone was to be in court, we would have missed that person much sooner because when they called the docket and that person wasn't there, we
6:33 pm
would immediately know. but him not actually having a scheduled court appearance, he wasn't missed at the courthouse because he wasn't supposed to be there to start with. >> that's why you consider her the mastermind, the idea of being able to know methodically all these different things, the six-hour lead time, her putting in for her retirement, the $29,000 in cash, not the sort of thing a normal inmate would have on hand. i think he's 6'9", if i'm not mistaken, how does this extraordinarily large individual evade for so long? they had to be quite methodical in being able to plan this. >> it was, she had assets. to escape from a county jail, it's sort of an opportunist kind of situation, they see an opportunity, they take advantage of it. and sometimes they plan them. but they usually don't have any plans once they get outside. they certainly don't have the resources that vicky and casey
6:34 pm
white had, money, a getaway car, a change of clothes, you know, and the chaos of in and out of the jail. she was able to manipulate all of that to her advantage. they were able to pull it off. >> sheriff, she may have been able to do that as well but now you've got somebody about to be in your custody yet again who of course has now escaped one of the facilities. what's going to happen next? will he be in confinement? will there be greater protocols safety-wise to ensure he is not able to leave again? >> well, actually the night he'll be arriving here, in the next hour and a half or so, he will be immediately carried before a judge for his arraignment hearing. as soon as that's over, he'll be loaded back up in the transport van and moved to the alabama department of corrections which is about two hours south of
6:35 pm
here. he will not be in our facility tonight. the day will come when he will have to be brought back because of the trial coming up on his capital murder charges. i can assure you, there will be extra precautions taken when he's in our facility. >> sheriff rick singleton, thank you so much. >> thank you. >> the next question of course is what now for the investigation. we'll dig deeper into how this all happened, what safeguards should be put in place so it can never happen again in other instances, and getting into the psychology, into the mind of the ex-guard who seemed to have given her life for his escape, next. what can i du with less asthma? with dupixent, i can du more... crazy commutes..
6:36 pm
crowd control- have a ne day alex (thanks ms. ellen) ...taking the stairs. that's how you du more with dupixent, which helps prevent asthma attacks. dupixent is not for sudden breathing problems. it's an add-on-treatment for specific types of moderate-to-severe asthma that can improve lung function for better breathing in as little as two weeks. and can reduce, or even eliminate, oral steroids. and here's something important. dupixent can cause allergic reactions that can be severe. get help right away if you have rash, chest pain, worsening shortness of breath, tingling or numbness in your limbs. tell your doctor about new or worsening joint aches and pain, or a parasitic infection. don't change or stop asthma medicines, including steroids, without talking to your doctor. are you ready to du more with less asthma? just ask your asthma specialist about dupixent.

6:39 pm
we're discussing the latest in the case of the escaped prisoner casey white. he's finally headed back to alabama in custody after running off with a female corrections officer 11 days ago. joining me now is former u.s. marshal and former federal corrections officer greg caine and criminologist casey jordan.
6:40 pm
it's playing out in many respects like a movie and of course it's a tragedy and loss of life not only from the person who was supposed to be the person as a corrections officer, but also fled with him. and i want to gynwith you, casey, because i'm curious about the psychology behind this, the idea of what might motivate, to answer the question of what the sheriff said, what in the world would have possessed her to engage in this behavior. what do you think? >> the conclusion he came to was jailhouse romance. and i think the public's getting used to this new phrase we're bantering about, the sexual and emotional attraction of a person but usually a woman to a heinous or violent criminal, usually a man. there's number of reasons why women are attracted to bad boys, especially in prison. sometimes it's fame. but in this particular case i think she really believed that she was in love with him, maybe she thought she understood him and nobody else did, maybe she
6:41 pm
thought she could fix him or save him. but she was experiencing wthat tingly, romantic feeling that teenagers feel when they're in love, to the point that she would sacrifice her job, her pension, liquidate her house, sell it for half its value, go on the lam with him, with no end game, no great plan, and be willing to die in a shootout if necessary if that's what it took to enjoy what i consider to be probably the most exciting ten days of her life. >> is that inconsistent with her being called a mastermind? it sounds as though she's being led by a vulnerability. is that -- can that happen as well and be the mastermind and have those emotions that you're talking about? >> well, i don't know if "mastermind," considering it only lasted ten days, would fit. but she was definitely a planner. this was probably two years in the making. she know she was calling him
6:42 pm
while he was in prison. his whole confession was probably a ploy so this escape could take place. the fact that she sold her house, got $96,000 in cash, which only $29,000 was left when they were caught, bought the cars under an alias, got wigs, bought him a change of clothes, this was a long term plan. i think the big question we have at this point, laura, is what was the end game. how does this end? was it always going to end in a shootout? or did they think they were going to get to canada, did they have a safe house? i think these interviews will reveal a lot once we find out what casey white has to say. >> something she said, and i want to turn to you, greg, on this, the prosecutor in me, when i hear a statement that perhaps the confession to the crime to which he will have a trial involving the murder of another woman, that maybe that was not a true confession or one that was
6:43 pm
part of an overall scheme, as a prosecutor i have concerns about the ability and viability of that case going forward now. but i know from a different perspective, you must have concerns about the viability of the safety protocols that are in place there. the idea that the sheriff has said, craig, that she was essentially able to break out casey white, the protocols or guardrails that should have been in place or were not followed or were able to lead to this, what changes do you think need to be made going forward to avoid what has happened here? >> hi, laura. well, first of all, these inmates, they have nothing to lose. so they will study every officer that's in the facility and they will find the weakest link that they can possibly exploit. so they're very manipulative. they're scheming, cunning. and you can't put anything past
6:44 pm
them. as far as -- you know, maybe he found in vicky the weak link, and he wooed her, and she fell for his trap. or maybe she just fell in love with him. i mean, these are questions now with her not being here anymore, we might not ever know. as far as protocol, before i became a deputy u.s. marshal, i worked in a federal correctional facility. there was always a protocol in place. and what it entailed is that if you're going to have somebody set up to go for psych evaluation, for court, for a dentist appointment to an outside facility outside the jail, we're going to know about this weeks in advance. so it's not going to be like an impromptu type of scheduling unless it's a medical emergency. so right there that should have

raised a red flag with whoever let ms. whiteout out with the prisoner. usually there's what we call a two-man hold, one on one plus one. with his history you would think that they might even have a three-man hold. and possibly, you know, when we had to do certain movements, and it's a high risk prisoner, we would know everything about that prisoner. we would know his whole criminal history beforehand. >> and there's a lot to be desired, just watching the video that was just playing of him sort of walking behind her and going into the back of her car, there's a lot -- and of course the lingering question, all things you guys have talked about, it seems the inmates knew far more than those who were actually in positions of power or just as much at that point. casey jordan and craig caine, thank you so much. >> good to be here.

an answer. uncovered through exploration, teamwork, and innovation. an answer that leads to even more answers. mayo clinic. you know where to go. well, tom brady may be in for another season with the tampa bay buccaneers, but he already has a post-retirement gig. according to "the new york post," the seven-time super bowl winner has a ten-year contract with fox sports to become its lead nfl analyst all for a whopping -- wait for it -- $375 million, the highest of any sports broadcaster. now, for context, brady reportedly made 333 million over his 23-year playing career. let's bring in veteran sports journalist jemele hill. i'm so glad you're here.
6:51 pm
i got to ask you, i mean, look, no one can really deny the athletic prowess of tom brady. but does he deserve this amount of money knowing that he's never actually been an analyst before? will he be the draw they need him to be? >> well, one, thank you for having me. and we have to remember, deserve has nothing to do with it. it's all about what you can negotiate, and it's all about leverage points. the fact is fox has the super bowl two of the next three years. and when you have the super bowl, you need marquee talent. tony romo and joe buck, two premier broadcasters, they've gone to espn where they're making a ton of money as well because i believe they're two and three on that list or at least in the top five at the very worst. so this was a very timely -- this was a great time for fox to approach brady. he's at the end of his career. you mentioned, you know, how much money he's already made in his career. so for him to now know that the
6:52 pm
next ten years, he's going to basically make more money than he already has in the nfl, if you're him, what's not to like about that? given his resume, certainly from a credibility standpoint, i don't think the fans have to worry or fox executives have to worry about that. he has the credibility. he has so many super bowl rings. he has more super bowl rings almost than he does fingers on both hands. so i think the fans are going to buy into it. the question that i have, and this is purely from a professional standpoint, tom brady as soon as he left new england, we've seen more of his personality, certainly on social media. he seems to be opening up a little bit more. he's got a docu-series on espn, so you see a little bit more of tom brady as a personality than you saw throughout most of his career. but does he have the ability to criticize some of his peers? will he say the kind of things that get people to think, that put the game in a different perspective? tony romo surprised a lot of people because nobody expected tony romo to be such a star from
6:53 pm
the beginning. so there's going to be a lot of pressure on brady to kind of live up to a standard that people like tony romo have established. >> something tells me he's not unaccustomed to pressure. the question i think for many people will be, will tom brady change his diet now that he'll one day be an analyst? will he have pizza while he's trying to analyze inside the game? i do want to know about your reaction from mike tyson, from one sport to the next, because you may have heard mike tyson, who was involved in an altercation on an airplane last month. they have not decided to charge him with any crime. the san mateo county, california, d.a. said. i just wonder to your reaction why he won't be charged? is this a greater trend, jamelle, where people are engaged in more taunting? they are requiring those who are in celebrity positions, athletes
6:54 pm
in particular, to have to have this thick skin where they cannot defend themselves in some way even if they are being antagonized on a plane as he allegedly was? what's your reaction to the way this is panning out? >> well, i'm glad he's not being charged. honestly, listen, i'm not -- i'm not in any way advocating violence. but unfortunately there are some people that might need to learn the hard way. there used to be a running joke across all of the world that one of the few people that you ever want to bring some smoke to is mike tyson. for somebody to aggravate him on an airplane in this situation is just befuddling to me because even though mike tyson hasn't botched boxed in a while, he's still in really good shape. those hands are still lethal. unfortunately we live in an era where a lot of people, even if they get humiliated, even if they get beat up, they think the
6:55 pm
sacrifice is worth it. we just saw recently last night, chris paul, his family at the dallas mavericks game, the phoenix suns playing the mavericks, some unruly fans were disrespecting his mother, and his wife and children have to witness it. i don't know what is in the psychology of people who feel as if because these are entertainers, because these are sports stars, that they feel license to get in their personal space, to disrespect them. like this ain't twitter, okay? so you might wind up catching some hands in real life for things that you think just because you're able to say over a keyboard, that interaction doesn't work the same when you're with somebody face to face. i unfortunately get a lot of disrespect on social media, and there's a few people i've had to tell just based off their tone, hey, just because you see me on cnn and just because you see me on various other networks, don't think that what you say to me now is going to work out the same way if you see me in public. so i think a lot of fans and a
6:56 pm
lot of people need to learn to respect other people's physical boundaries. you are entertained by them. that does not mean you own them. >> jemele hill, i don't know who dares to mess with you, but it's not going to be me tonight. thank you so much. appreciate talking to you. >> thank you, laura. >> we'll be right back. new dove hair therapy shampoo & conditioner with ceramide & peptide. it nourishes at a cellular level to rescue damaged hair. discover 10 x stronger hair with new dove hair therapy rescue and protect. you never know what opportunities life will send your way. but if you have moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis or psoriatic arthritis, enbrel can help you say i'm in for what's next. ready to create a bigger wor? -i'm in. ready to earn that “world's greatest dad” mug? -i'm in. care to play a bigger role in this community? -i'm in. enbrel helps relieve joint pain, helps stop permanent joint damage, and helps skin get clearer in psoriatic arthritis. with less pain, you're free to join in. enbrel may lower your ability to fight infections. serious, sometimes fatal events including infections,
